Larry Leonard Hohman, 48, of 2607 N.E. 16th Ave., Ocala, was arrested at 12:32 p.m. Sunday, at 7103 N. Carl G. Rose Highway, Hernando, on an active Vanderburgh County, Ind., warrant for parole violation for failing to register as a sex offender in reference to an original felony charge of sex offense crimes against children and as a fugitive from justice. He was given no bond. According to the Americas Most Wanted website, Hohman was convicted in 1999 of molesting two young boys. He was convicted of nine felony child molesting charges and one count each of intimidation and battery. He was sentenced to 10 years, but released early on parole with the legal requirement that he provide his address to the state. Hohman violated parole in 2005 Effective Aug. 15, the Ocala Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. Congressional budget cuts have forced reduced public hours. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-toface service with the visiting public without incurring the cost of overtime. Congress provided Social Security with nearly $1 billion less than the president requested for the budget this fiscal year, which makes it impossible for the agency to provide the amount of overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has in the past. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to an office. For example, anyone wishing to apply for benefits, sign up for direct deposit, replace a Medicare card, obtain a proof of income letter or inform us of a change of address or telephone number may do so at www.socialsecurity.gov or by calling our toll-free number, 1-800-7721213. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778. The Ocala office is at 217 S.E. First Ave. Ocala Social Security office shortens hours Office to close at 3:30 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWork on new road starts The first tangible sign of the new road coming to the Corridor has started. Workers began clearing a path for the extension of Southwest 40th Avenue to the north. The avenue is where the new road coming from the to-be-constructed I-75 flyover and extension of 42nd Street will connect with State Road 200.

The Southwest District of the Marion County Sheriffs Office announced two DUI arrests this past week. Thomas W. Hearon, 27, of Southwest 129th Terrace Road, Dunnellon, was accused of DUI after being stopped on County Road 484 as he attempted to pull one truck in front of another. He told deputies that he had crashed the first truck into a tree, and called a relative who brought the second truck. He was trying to get in front of the original truck when he was spotted by the deputy. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail, where his breath registered at .201 and .183. The legal limit is .08. John Joseph Simeone, 53, of Northwest 115th Avenue, Ocala, was accused of DUI after being stopped on Northwest 110th Avenue for failing to stay in a single lane. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail, where his breath registered .194 and .186. Girl went missing 35 years ago this month C OP SHOP layed start in the summer rainy season. The Phase I order is intended as an alert to prepare for worsening conditions. Under Phase I, residents are asked to check their irrigation systems to ensure they are working properly. This means testing and repairing broken pipes and leaks, and damaged or tilted sprinkler heads. Residents should also check their irrigation timer to ensure the settings are correct and the rain sensor is working properly in accordance with state law. There are no changes to watering days or times in a Phase I water shortage compared to the Districts year-round water conservation measures. This means lawn and landscape watering remains limited to a two-day-per-week schedule, and residents may only water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. In Marion County, people with odd numbered addresses may water on Wednesday and Saturday, even numbered addresses Thursday and Sunday. Non residential properties may water on Tuesday and Friday. No one may water on Monday. Water for no more than one hour per zone. Restrictions apply to private wells and pumps, ground or surface water and water from public and private utilities. Our rainy season has gotten off to a slow start, said Lois Sorensen, District demand management program manager. The regions public water supplies are in relatively good shape for now, but we may need to consider stricter measures if the rest of the rainy season isnt more consistently productive. When Phase I first went into effect, water utilities and their local governments were expected to review and revise their watering restriction enforcement procedures. The extension means they must continue to report enforcement activity to the District on a monthly basis. For additional information about water restrictions and water conservation, please contact your local utility or visit the Districts website which can be found at www.WaterMatters.org/con servation/. To report a possible violation, call 1-800848-0499 or email Water.Restrictions@WaterMatters.org/.

Late last summer I decided Id had enough of foggy-looking windows and had almost all the windows in my house replaced with very energy efficient ones. Last fall the heating and air conditioning serviceman used very discouraging phrases, such as seriously struggling and badly rusted, when describing the health of my 15 year old system. This spring I replaced it. Yes I received the $1500 energy credit on my 2010 income tax for the windows. Yes the windows and heating and air conditioning really did need replacing. However, I think I will need to live a very, very, very long time if I want to recoup my expenditures with decreased electricity bills. Recently the folks that did my windows came out to see how I liked them and somehow in the process managed to convince me that I ought to get OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 the newest insulation in the attic. In order to pay for itself this latest home improvement will have to reduce my electricity consumption so much SECO pays me! (For some reason I seem to be listening to salesmen lately. I took my car to the dealer for an oil change and while I was waiting I was approached by a new car salesman. Having nothing better to do I listened to his presentation and even took a test drive. Thankfully for my bank balance I went into severe sticker shock at his first bottom line and quickly went back to the service waiting room. I must have been temporarily out of my mind. I cant trade in my bright blue car! Its such an unusual color and Ive been driving it so long, almost 12 years, that people wouldnt know it was me if I drove anything else.)

Green efforts pay offThanks to the energy-saving efforts of students and employees of Marion County Public Schools, the district has earned national recognition for its energy savings program. Since this program started five years ago, the district has avoided and saved -$11,583,825 in utility costs. Energy Education, the districts energy savings partner, will present the Chairmans Sustainability Award tomorrow morning (Thursday) during a school board work session. This meeting begins at 9AM in the districts central office at 512 S.E. 3rd St. in Ocala. The award showcases the districts success in carrying out the Transformational Energy Management process, a comprehensive people-oriented approach to energy conservation at all levels.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com T he book Buried Prey opens with a grisly scene because a house demolition crew in Minneapolis has unearthed the mummified bodies of two young girls wrapped in plastic. The news has special meaning for Detective Lucas Davenport. Twenty years earlier, as a rookie cop, his first real case involved the disappearance of two teenagersthe Jones sisters. He was working patrol then and briefly as a dope guy and felt that he was learning things at a ferocious rate: about the street, life, death, sex, love, hate, fear, stupidity, jealousy, and accident and all the other things that brought citizens in contact with the cops. Such confidence in his youth made him feel uniquely destined to solve the Jones case. And, of course, that meant he would certainly make a serious blunder. In his pursuit of justice Lucas, with close friend Del Capstock, chases down a homeless man with mental problems, Terry Scrape. Once they smell blood they conclude that their prey is not finished with crime. And about that they were so right. But all that was then. The second half of the novel takes up now and what an older Lucas growth experience forces him to face about underplaying other suspects decades before. The cold light of reason now focuses on one John Fell who existed 25 years ago but was pushed aside to concentrate on Scrape. A sobering truth is that Fell is not the mans real name. And so Davenport seesaws between what his gut tells him and what the flimsy evidence points to. In the end theres a wild ride across the countryside pursuing shaky leads to stop the monster from killing again. Ultimately, Lucas in his wisdom concedes that he hadnt been responsible for the Jones girls but laments the time he wasted on Scrape when he might have saved others. His wife tells him that the world isnt perfect; things just happen. But although he knows he cant fix the world this noble protagonist just wants to try harder. Fans of Sandfords previous 20 Prey novels should enjoy this look back on Davenports early career. The pace is just about perfect and the dialogue is razor sharp. Book tell story of bodies found 20 years after disappearance BURIED PREY By John Sandford B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington The Southwest Florida Water Management District Governing Board Tuesday adopted its proposed fiscal year 2012 (FY2012) millage rate. The proposed FY2012 millage rate of 0.3928 mill takes into account the merger of the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board, and the $108 million cap on ad valorem property tax collections passed by the Florida Legislature. FY2012 will run from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012. The Governing Board merged the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board in May. The merger was implemented to increase efficiency of operations and reduce costs, and is projected to save $350,000 to $400,000 annually. Governor Rick Scott in June signed legislation that caps the taxes Floridas five water management districts can assess on residential and commercial properties. For the owner of a $150,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, the FY2012 Districtwide tax would be $39.28 a year, or about $3.27 per month. Two statutorily required public hearings on the Districts total budget will be held in September. The first will be Sept. 13 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Tampa Service Office. The Governors office and the state legislature will review and approve the budgets of all five water management districts before the second and final public hearing. Water district approves proposed millage rate Employment changes from May to June saw gains in six sectors for an increase of 600 jobs in finance; leisure and hospitality; manufacturing; mining, logging and construction; professional and business services; and retail trade). Four industries showed no change over the month: information; transportation, warehousing and utilities; wholesale trade; and other services. While education and health services dropped since May by 100 to 13,700, it was up by 300 jobs over the year. The biggest hit came to local government employment, which reportedly lost 1,700 jobs, from 14,200 to 12,500 since May, while state and federal jobs experienced no change. For regions, we question that, AWIs Rust said. We have concerns with those local government numbers. Workforce Connection serves career seekers by planning and coordinating training, education and placement opportunities and also provides business development services such as on-the-job training, paid internships and other financial incentives. Last year, more than 36,000 career seekers and 1,600 businesses received services. The local, business-led nonprofit organization works with economic development partners throughout the threecounty region to bring new employers to the area as well as to provide services and hiring and training incentives that help new and existing businesses, large and small.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Leisure ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A misunderstanding tests the temperament of the sometimes headstrong Aries. Instead of blowing your top, take time for a pleasant diversion while things cool down. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A workplace problem could make the divine Bovine see red. But talk it out before you consider walking out. Some surprising facts emerge that change your earlier focus. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You face a choice between ignoring your uneasy feelings about your relationship with that special person and demanding explanations. A close friend offers wise counsel. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change youd been hoping for carries an unexpected complication. Stay the course, and things will work themselves out. Be sure to make time for family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22 ) Aspects favor spending time with loved ones. On the job, new ideas are generally welcomed. But some demands for changes could cause problems. Be ready to defend your choices. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Good news: That workplace problem is close to being resolved with results that should please everyone. Take time off to indulge your love of fun and games. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Most of the time you are the most unflappable person around. But be ready to be thrown off-balance in the nicest way when Cupid takes aim in your direction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Its not often when someone tries to sting the sharp-witted Scorpion. But it can happen. Continue to be skeptical about anything that seems too good to be true. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your strong sense of self-esteem helps you serve as a role model for someone who needs personal reassurances. Your efforts pay off in an unexpected way. CAPRICORN (De. 22 to Jan. 19) Someone close considers revealing a painful secret. Withhold judgment. Instead, open your generous heart, and offer dollops of your love and understanding. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your talents as a peacemaker are called upon once more as an old problem re-emerges with new complications. Move cautiously in order to avoid falling into hidden traps.

The FWC tested 910 free-ranging deer during the past year and 5,519 deer during the past nine years, with no CWD-positive results. "We are fortunate that no Florida deer has tested positive for CWD. The effect this disease has had in other states is substantial," Cory Morea, FWC's deer coordinator and biologist, said. "We would like to obtain more samples of deer from areas adjacent to captive deer facilities, because the most likely way for CWD to be introduced into Florida is through the importation of deer from other states." CWD is a contagious neurological disease that has been found in captive and wild mule deer, white-tailed deer, moose and Rocky Mountain elk within several Western states and more recently Eastern states. The disease causes degeneration of the brain of infected animals, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and death. Virginia and West Virginia are the only southeastern states where CWD has been detected. To reduce the chances of CWD entering Florida, the state prohibits importing live deer unless they come from a herd that has been certified CWD-free for five or more years. Additionally, importation of any species of deer, elk or moose carcasses, with the exception of cleaned skull caps, antlers, tanned hides and deboned meat, is prohibited from 19 states and two Canadian provinces where CWD has been detected. Chronic wasting disease has been detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota and Maryland, and Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. Visit the CWD Alliance website at www.cwdinfo.org for the most up-to-date CWD reporting. "Early detection is the key to limiting the spread of the disease, if such an outbreak should occur in Florida," Morea said. The FWC is once again turning to hunters and members of the public this hunting season for assistance in helping monitor the state's deer herd for CWD. "We're asking hunters to report any sightings of sick or emaciated deer, or deer found dead from unknown causes," Morea said. "If you see such a deer, do not touch it, but instead contact us as soon as possible by calling toll-free, 866-CWD-WATCH (2939282). Wildlife biologists will respond and, if necessary, collect deer tissue for testing." CWD WATCH is part of an aggressive monitoring program intended to detect CWD in Florida and minimize its impact, should it be found. There is no evidence that CWD poses a risk for humans. However, public health officials recommend avoiding direct contact with any sicklooking deer or one that has died from unknown causes. For more information about CWD surveillance in Florida, go to MyFWC.com/CWD. The website also offers links to wildlife and health agencies with more in-depth information about the disease. Hunters asked to monitor deer for disease The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Wildlife Services and partner agencies are wrapping up a fiveyear avian influenza monitoring project. The project was designed to determine if migratory birds carried the Asian strain of the highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) virus to the U.S. All samples collected by the FWC and other state partners tested negative for any highly pathogenic strains. Biologists started the project in 2006 in an effort to rapidly detect and quickly respond should a highly pathogenic strain reach the U.S. There have been no reported cases of avian influenza in humans in the United States but a number of people in other countries became sick or died from that virus after extensive, direct contact with infected poultry. The USDA and its partners collected more than 450,000 samples nationwide, including 5,200 plus samples from Florida. In Florida, much of the success of this project came from the voluntary participation of duck hunters who allowed biologists to sample the birds they harvested. Biologists collected nearly 3,000 samples at hunter check stations in several of Florida's wildlife management areas. Biologists sampled a wide variety of duck species, including the northern shoveler, gadwall, mottled, mallard and green and blue winged teal.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in T he term skunk works originated in the comic strip Lil Abner. It meant a job nobody wanted. The expression morphed into meaning high technology research and development projects done in secret by a small group of scientists or engineers looking for a radical solution to a problem. A skunk-works group of bi-partisan U.S. Senators have worked diligently behind closed doors for months seeking a formula which might solve the national debt and deficit problem. Theyre known as The Gang of Six. At this writing (Saturday, July 23), while there is no agreed solution to the national debt and deficit crisis, we think the Gang of Six merit applause for their statesman-like efforts, despite the political maneuvering going on around them. There have been other notable skunk works in our history. John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Robert Livingston, and Roger Sherman risked their reputations, their possessions, and their lives as members of the Committee of Five which drafted the Declaration of Independence. King George III of England would have lopped off their heads had he known what they were up to. Because the Senate considers itself a gentlemans club and has no power to lop off heads, the most serious risks to the Gang of Six have been the displeasure of party leaders and possible anger of voters. Democrats Mark Warner of Virginia, Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Kent Conrad of North Dakota have been willing to ignore their partys obsession with deficit spending, borrowing, and more taxation. Republicans Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma have been rubbing their partys fur the wrong way by considering proposals for tax reform revenue in addition to less spending. Meanwhile, in between campaign trips President Obama called a succession of meetings with congressional leaders without ever offering up a plan of his own. The White House approach has been If nothing works, its your fault! The Presidents late and passive participation in the debt/deficit process has been an extension of his indifference to his own Fiscal Responsibility Commission in April. He didnt even attend the meeting at which they presented their recommendations. Creating a debt and deficit Commission was just reelection campaign showmanship. Like the Gang of Six, most of the members of the presidents Commission put their patriotic responsibility ahead of their political allegiances. They too deserve some applause for their statesmanship. Too many Washington politicians equate compromise with cowardice. They are unwilling to risk their cherished careers in public service to practice statesmanship. They have forgotten, or never knew, that our Constitution was a compromise without which there would have been no United States of America. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 H onest, I heard some guy on a TV station say this: Our national nightmare is over. So was he talking about the debt ceiling crisis, the government shutdown threat? No, he was talking about the National Football League lockout. I like sports as much as anyone. The only pay packages we subscribe to in my house are the Major League Baseball Extra Innings package and the NFL Red Zone (no HBO, Showtime or junk like that). But a national nightmare? Come on. Was there ever any doubt that the billionaires who own the NFL teams and the millionaires who play the games would get together to work out some financial solution? Sure, it dragged on over the past several months, but no one was playing football then anyway. Now the only casualty appears to be the Hall of Fame game, which was pretty much a farce, played at a high school stadium in Canton, Ohio. Maybe to make up for lost concessions they can add a game between Canton McKinley and Westerville North, or something like that, and probably generate more interest. The regular season starts in September, and all you NFL addicts will have your fill of grunts, hits, passes, runs and, dont forget, concussions. This week the players are heading back to training camp, and well find out how much those voluntary workouts kept them in shape. Teams will be signing free agents, too, and you wont be able to tell the players without a scorecard. Of course, weve been hearing free agent and trade rumors all summer, thanks to guys like Mike and Mike, who have four hours to kill every morning and evidently dont know the baseball season is at the height of interest. Lets see: Cincinnati must be a mess. Carson Palmer, the quarterback, is Bengals property but doesnt want to be there. Chad Ochocinco (that means eight five) says he loves Cincinnati, but he may not be able to stay there. (Incidentally, he wears 85, but if my basic Spanish is still accurate, that would be ochenta y cinco.) Peyton Manning has a pain in the neck (from surgery, not his brother), so his status is unknown. Tiki Barber wants to come back, and give up life as a TV announcer thank goodness. Then there are the Jacksonville Jaguars, who cant sell out half the time, and theres talk of moving them somewhere. The Tampa Bay Bucs seem to be Floridas best bet for a playoff team, but well see what they do in free agency. And on and on it goes. It should all come together in September, and end in February, just before baseball spring training starts. Wait! The NBA is also in a lockout, and I just skipped over the entire basketball season. Do you suppose anyone will notice? Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at. editor@smcitizen.com. PUBLISHER : GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen S ome 60 years ago, a technological concept called a computer was developed with little to no vision of how it was going to change the world we live in. Who would have imagined a machine that took up an entire room would morph into something small enough to sit on a lap and go on to guide spacecraft throughout the universe, change the military approach to war, banking, medicine, and make the encyclopedia obsolete? The ever-evolving world of computers changes instantly there is always a new version on the horizon. The same can be said about the criminal. There is a negative side to the computer revolution: there are sexual predators out there who see it as a means to connect up with and harm our innocent children. A recent press conference was held at the Emergency Operations Center in Lecanto in Citrus County to announce an Internet sting operation called Operation Cyber Guardian. After months of undercover talking with people targeting children and young teens for sex via the Internet, 18 people were arrested from across the state, along with a man from Ocala. Ranging in age from 17 to 70, the men arrested clearly believed they were chatting with the parents of underage children or a sexy teenager who were willing to trade sex for money. They even showed up to the sting with Happy Meals and a red slushy as signs of misplaced affection. By placing properly worded ads in the appropriate places visited by people described by Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy as the 800-pound gorilla in the room, law enforcement was able to set the dragnet to catch and stop them from targeting innocent victims. Local operatives in the task force never initiated the online chats and never had any verbal conversations until the men appeared at the door of the undercover house. The sting operation had been up and running for six months and followed on the heels of an operation called Grim Reaper that netted 22 arrests in October. The scary part of the situation is, these people are actually out there aggressively looking to harm innocent children. With cell phones, texting, iPads and computers readily available and in the hands of our children, kids are vulnerable to such communications. The person on the other end of cyber space message is a friend. Active enforcement is the way to go and Sheriff Dawsy, the deputies in the sex crime unit and all involved in the process should be commended for their dedication to keeping these predators at bay. Our children are a precious resource and should never have to deal with the results of such heinous acts by deprived minds. There are laws in place to protect our youths and they must be diligently enforced. To our law enforcement officials, keep sending the message to the predators that this will never be tolerated. If you even consider doing it, theres a good chance you will find yourself in jail and branded as a sexual predator for life. There has to be some method of stopping such vile acts.

BY MONTE DUTTON King FeaturesLOUDON, N.H. -When Ryan Newman crossed the finish line at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, having won for the 15th time in his Sprint Cup career, he enjoyed a pleasing, but rare, overlap. Newman also started on the pole in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301. It was the 47th pole of Newman's career. Only nine drivers have ever won more. But it was only the fourth time Newman won after starting out front. "We backed up what everybody said we couldn't back up," he said. "That was our qualifying effort on Friday. I had won three for 46, now four for 47. "We'll relish this moment and figure out what we did right so we can keep doing it." Eight of Newman's 15 career victories occurred in 2003, when he drove for Roger Penske. He was selected as Cup's 2002 Rookie of the Year over Jimmie Johnson, who has since won five championships. Newman's owner and teammate, Tony Stewart, finished second, marking the first time teammates both started and finished 12, in the same order, since 1957. As the laps wound down, Newman had track position but was low on fuel. He managed to save enough fuel to maintain the lead and hold off Stewart's charge. "One of the best cars here is the '14' (Stewart). There were a couple other cars at different times, but the '14' was mired back in traffic," said Newman. "He had to run the wheels off of it to get up to where he had some track position so he could try to run us down. "Fortunately, it stayed green. I was more worried about a yellow coming out with five to go. 'Do we have enough fuel for a greenwhite-checkered (finish)? Usually those things that come and squash us didn't happen today. Maybe a change of luck for us from that standpoint." Newman, like Stewart, is a native of Indiana. The 33Newman relishes win at New Hampshire track year-old South Bend native graduated from Purdue University in 2001 with a degree in vehicle structure engineering. Now eighth in the Sprint Cup point standings, Newman became the 13th driver to win in the season's first 19 races. Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette.

Its hard to believe there are people like you who are honest. God bless you and yours. Naomi Brauer Ocala Rick Scott neededThank God for Rick Scott. So much bellyaching from the left it is enough to make one vomit. Rick Scott was elected by the majority. Why you ask? Could it be the left was doing a lousy job and it was time for a change? The left thought it was time for a change when they elected Barack Obama so it was a great idea to bring on the change. Well how is that working for us (not so good I would say). Unions representing all law enforcement members do not want to see 19 county's privatize prisons. Could it be they may lose revenue for the Democratic Party? The answer is to take Rick Scott to court. The left does not want to see a constitutional amendment on next year's ballot that would make funding to religious institutions available, Hmm why would that be? Apparently they are happy with the less than adequate status of our public schools that have provided a constant 46th to 49th placement The more money Florida citizens dump into the corrupted school system the lower our children function, however the private schools consistently rate higher, oh, but wait, the private schools also teach history, not revisionist history, what a novel idea. Private schools also teach morals, and integraity, also novel to public schools. Answer another lawsuit for Rick Scott. A challenge of a new state election law that changed early-voting procedures, that will curb the process of collecting signatures for amendments and create a hardship for those out there trying to collect signatures from the illegal and the dead. May I remind everyone that only a short time ago there was only one day to vote, that is until the left decided it was not fair, not enough time to get those so needed signatures to create their voting fraud. Voila: another lawsuit against Rick Scott. Next Rick Scott dares to want drug-testing of state workers. Wow what a terrible person he is. Does the left feel like their base cannot pass such a test? Oh well just take Rick Scott to court! Last but not least redistricting. The left is not happy with the present districts in Florida, so I will remind all of you that the last time Florida went through redistricting, it was the left that did it, but of course there will be many more lawsuits to come because Rick Scott and the new Florida legislators will be blamed for all of this. You just can not make some people happy no matter what is done. Rick Scott and the legislators are my heroes for trying to clean up the mess that was left to them by the Rino's and Democrats. Keep up the good work! Linda Miller Ocala Drain on Medicare Medicare does not make any rules. Congress makes the rules. Congress decides how much money Medicare is given to operate. Congress does not allow Medicare to question a bill except as it relates to the area normal charge. Medicare is restricted to finding out if a service was provided. Medicare has sued and collected many billions of dollars from healthcare companies, especially Floridas now Governor Rick Scott who took the Fifth Amendment 75 times and whose healthcare company paid 1.7 billion dollars for fraud. Rick Scott received a golden parachute of 300 million dollars on leaving Columbia/HCA. Private healthcare companies are responsible for the drain on Medicare, not patients. Alan Gold Ocala Vandals bewareThis letter is to the person who vandalized the mens room at the indoor pool in Oak Run, a 55-plus community in Ocala. I find it so hard to believe that this was done by a resident of our fine community, but the question I want to ask is why did you do it? If for some reason you have a gripe with the management of our community going into the mens room and causing a flood is not going to settle that difference between you and management. Did you think that such an act would cause management any inconvenience? Your thinking that management would suffer by the closing of this facility due to flood damage you did was a totally wrong assumption on your part. Did you not stop and think that these buildings and contents therein are all under insurance? Management most likely reported this incident to the Sheriffs Office and then put in a claim to their insurance company to cover the damages. The insurance company will send out a representative to assess the damages, and then decide on a payment to repair all the damage that you caused. This could take weeks. In the meantime the facility will be closed to all residents. Didn't you consider some residents use this facility every day for health reasons? The closing of this facility only hurts the residents because they are the ones denied access to it. You are a selfish person to think only of your small problem whatever it may be, and not the welfare of all the residents of the Oak Run community. I myself would gladly contribute to a fund to have security cameras installed in all the facilities in our fine community so this will not ever happen again without the vandal being exposed and reported to the police. If you are a resident of our great community, and I pray that you're not, you must know that every neighborhood has a representative. Some neighborhoods have two representatives, and the representatives are elected to resolve any problems or complaints you may have, and to act as your liaison with management. The neighborhood representative is your link to getting things done for all concerned. If you are not a resident well then there is such a thing as small claims court or an attorney and fight it out with management in court. Leave the residents alone. We pay amenities every month for the use of the wonderful facilities we have here in our community and we don't like anyone messing with them. So be careful next time you decide to do any damage, you will not be in a winning situation next time. Rosemarie Peluso Neighborhood Representative and Treasurer of Oak RunThoughts regarding tax reformTell me it isnt so! 53% of Americans are paying 100% of our income taxes and 47% are paying no income tax at all? Yep, thats the truth! 25 years ago, only 19% of Americans paid no income taxes, but that figure has grown to the current 47%. If this trend continues, America will reach the tipping-point over 51% of non-taxpayers in 2015.

After six consecutive months of steady decline in the unemployment rate, joblessness in Workforce Connections threecounty region rose in June from 11.5 to 12.2 percent, according to information released today by the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation. The increase in unemployment in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties has been experienced to some degree by every county in Florida. While the increase is typically a reflection of seasonal impacts, not necessarily a sign that the economy is worsening, it doesnt suggest strong gains, either at least not locally. Rusty Skinner, Workforces chief executive officer, said Seasonal unemployment is creating a big distortion in the picture of where we are. But even if seasonality is removed, were not showing an economy thats showing any significant growth. The unemployment rate in June for Citrus, Levy and Marion counties is 1.1 percentage points above Floridas not seasonally adjusted rate of 11.1 percent, and 2.9 percent higher than the national rate. The regional rate is down from 13.3 percent a year ago. Skinner said noted that Citrus and Levy counties experienced growth in both the labor force and employment and decreases to the number of unemployed. The number of unemployed in Marion County dropped significantly since June 2010, from 18,284 to 16,774, while the labor force and employment shrank slightly. Out of a regional labor force of 208,575, the number of those without jobs increased by 1,531 to 25,547, and those with jobs dropped by 1,255 to 183,028. Here is how the counties fared in June: Citrus Countys unemployment rate of 11.8 percent is up from 11 percent in May; its labor force shrank by 286 to 58,131, the number of employed dropped by 721 to 51,299 while those unemployed increased by 435 to 6,832. Levy County posted an 11.1-percent unemployment rate, up from 10.3 percent; its labor force decreased by 146 to 17,409, the number of those employed dropped by 286 to 315,468, and those without jobs also dropped by 140 to 1,941. Marion Countys unemployment rate rose from 12 to 12.6 percent; its labor force expanded by 536 to 133,035 while the number of those employed collapsed by 391 to 116,261 and unemployment rose from by 927 to 16,774. For the second consecutive month, the Ocala Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) held its ranking of fourth highest unemployment rate among the states 23 MSAs down from second in March and third in April behind Palm Coasts 14.6 percent, Miami-Miami Beach at 13.9 percent and Sebastian-Vero Beach at 13.5 percent. Among Floridas 67 counties, Marion Countys unemployment ranks as seventh highest, Citrus County is 10th and Levy County is 21st. Total nonagricultural employment for the Ocala MSA was 89,100, down 1,200 over May but only 700 fewer jobs a year ago. Year-to-year gains were reported in retail trade; transportation, warehousing and utilities; and education and health services. Skinner said, we have to acknowledge the fact that it jumped up. Certainly this is the time when college students return home looking for work which results in expansion of the labor force Skinner said. What we also see is a number of teachers and school-based employees that shrink during the summer months, and government shrinkage as well.

Its unacceptable that potentially 49% of Americans will support the other 51%. How can this inequity be fixed? One possible solution is to rein in handouts to people who are not entitled to them, and too restrict other unnecessary spending. Another solution is to implement immediate tax reform. The current system is so full of loopholes, inconsistencies and bandages on top of bandages that the tax code is almost impossible to interpret and administer. It simply isnt an equitable system. Two alternative tax methods are being considered: some people prefer a Fair Tax (national sales tax). Others prefer a Flat Tax (single rate tax). In either case, one or the other, or perhaps a combination of the two, must replace the existing monster. Two benefits of this new tax method are: a logical redistribution of income would occur; some of the responsibility for the payment of taxes would be shifted to the 51% of people who are not paying taxes. Loopholes in the current system that allow corporations to park billions of dollars offshore to avoid paying taxes on their money would be eliminated. There are many other benefits to a new tax system which are too numerous to discuss in this letter. It is up to the individual to become familiar with each method, and then decide which he or she prefers. Some members of Congress actively support a new tax structure. But, we need to aggressively seek out even more supporters of tax reform and keep after them to get it done. Joe OHara Ocala Against Tea PartyThe debt ceiling fight in Washington proves one thing, and that is that the Tea Party is the worst thing to happen to American politics in years. A list of what is wrong with the Tea Party is too long to cite here so I'll just mention the most recent idiocy attributed to them. Currently there is a bill before Congress to raise the debt ceiling. This bill is necessary so that the United States can meet its fiscal obligations and not go into default which would be a catastrophe. The tea baggers in Congress are refusing to sign the bill saying that it contains tax increases. This is not true. The bill proposed by the Obama administration simply closes some tax loop holes and removes some tax subsidies to the rich. This intransigence by the tea baggers makes one wonder if it's the tax issues they object too or is it something else, like their dislike of the Obama administration and their wish for it to fail. Whichever is the case I hope that it will come back to bite them in the next election.

Compiled by Alan Gold HOW THEY VOTED BY BILL TATE Special to the Citizen As the back to school season swings into full gear this fall, there are many opportunities for adults to volunteer and support school activities. Volunteers lend valuable time and assistance to our school systems, and while the majority of school volunteers are law abiding role models for our nations children, unsavory adults sometimes come into the mix. Predators, or wolves in volunteers clothing, can be quite wily at finding ways to be near children. When the infamous bank robber, Willie Sutton, was asked why he stole from banks, he said, Because thats where the money is. Individuals who work closely with children, whether it is a teacher or a volunteer, a coach or cafeteria or maintenance worker, should be subject to background screening before their interaction begins. Most of us assume that every adult working closely with our children is carefully vetted by the schools with which they are associated. The practice of background checks for school employees is standard issue for all employees with access to children. Background checks reduce organizational liability and help protect children. So why should this practice differ with school volunteers? Depending on the role of the volunteers and the level of supervision they will have, many believe school volunteers should be subject to the same screening criteria as any other school employee. While not universal, more and more school districts across the country are adopting policies mandating that volunteers who interact with students must go through a criminal background check first. School districts in Charlotte, Nashville, Seattle, and San Antonio, for example, actively screen all volunteers who will interact with students. However, such policies are not in place in all school districts. Some schools are concerned that background checks on volunteers will reduce volunteer involvement. But every school needs to carefully consider who they allow to interact with their students on school GUEST COLUMN Avoid wolves in volunteers clothing at school Why background screening for school volunteers is important grounds and at school sponsored activities. Background checks on school volunteers may reveal that someone has a criminal history or is living under an alias. Most parents dont want volunteers who have misdemeanor and felony convictions at their school. It is important that parent volunteers dont become offended when asked to go through a background check. A comprehensive screening policy should dictate that everyone interacting with the students be screened even if they are a parent of a current student. Most parents will understand this need and will support the school districts commitment to student safety. Parents should inquire about the background screening policy at their childs school. This will allow parents to better understand the schools position on the issue and what will be required of them if they have the opportunity to volunteer. If there is no background screening policy for volunteers, ask for one. It is important that schools establish criteria for background checks, and guidelines for unsupervised access to children. What level of access is the volunteer given? Are they alone with children in the classroom? Are they transporting students in a vehicle? Are they acting as the primary student supervisors on overnight trips? As a parent and human resources professional, I believe that all concerned parents should be active in ensuring that a background screening process is in place for all people who come into contact with their child at school. There is nothing more important than the safety and security of our children. As our children return to school this fall, I recommend that we ask our school administrators the following questions. With the answers to these questions, we learn PLEASESEESCHOOL PAGE11 Cooks for the Cure The community of Stone Creek, off Southwest 80th Avenue north of State Road 200, recently held a Cooks for the Cure event to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. Here some of the guests enjoy the spread that was set before them. The traffic toll in Marion County continues to climb. The death toll is now 33. Two people were killed on State Road 40 East, in about the 10000 block early Saturday in a head-on collision. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 1993 Oldsmobile driven by Kimberly Beyers of Silver Springs was heading west on the highway about 5:30 a.m. The car apparently crossed the center line and struck a pickup driven by Richard Mays, 85, of Cross City. The pickup overturned. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the pickup, Walter Evans, 67, also from Cross City, was taken to Shands in Gainesville. His injuries were listed as minor. All three people involved in the accident were wearing seatbelts. A dog was also injured in the accident.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com what policies and procedures may need improvement, and where schools may even be exceeding our expectations: 1. Does the school have a policy in place to ensure background screening for all employees of the school? Are teachers, crossing guards, teaching assistants, nurses, cafeteria workers, maintenance people virtually all paid employees screened? 2. What type of background screening is conducted on employees? Is a national criminal background check conducted? Is the school conducting drug and alcohol testing? 3. Does the school permit parents, grandparents and other family members to volunteer? 4. Are non-familial relations (i.e., area residents, nannies, family friends) permitted to volunteer? 5. Is there mandatory background screening for all school volunteers whether they are family members or nonfamilial relations? While some schools engage only in limited county or state checks, the national criminal background check offers the most comprehensive way to investigate someones criminal history within the United States. A national criminal background check searches for criminal and county court records, correctional facility records, and sex offender, terrorist and most wanted criminal records. National criminal background reports show current and historical felony convictions and misdemeanor offenses. Federal and state laws strictly regulate drug testing procedures in order to protect the interests and rights of employers and employees. Should teachers be randomly drug-tested? Practices vary across the country. Teacher drug testing was the subject of court cases in North Carolina and West Virginia, where educators argued that time and costs associated with random tests would be better spent in the classroom. Hence, it is no surprise that if our nations teachers are not subject to drug screening, the volunteers are also getting a free pass. Every school should include a careful review of its states laws, as well as teachers contracts and union agreements, when developing a background screening policy In addition to wanting to serve the best interest of the students, many school boards are open to the idea of background screening because they understand the risks they take by not doing so. The school itself is likely to be held responsible if a child is placed in danger from a volunteer or an employee. For the safety of our students, parents peace of mind and fiscal health of the school, it makes sense for schools to implement a comprehensive background screening program. As parents, we are the best advocates for our childrens safety, and schools should truly be a safe haven. Parents, along with parents associations, teachers unions and school officials, should review the level of access volunteers are granted to the children when building an effective volunteer background check program. Children are our most precious resource and they must be vigorously protected. Ensuring that wolves in volunteers clothing dont enter our childrens vulnerable world is of paramount importance.

N ow that I have safely escaped the infamous 50-something stage of life, I am carefully testing the waters before me. They look calm, but you never can be sure. Moreover, at this juncture of my life I am in no mood for taking chances. Just the other day the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said to me rather sarcastically, How does it feel to be 60-something? I knew she was having too much fun with this so I retorted by saying, I feel like two 30-year-olds. Oh, no, she moaned. I cant handle more than one of you. Ha! Ha! Ha! In her old age, she has not lost any of her sense of humor. I was hoping. I am taking it rather careful, though. I have heard all the rumors about what happens to a person once they pass the 60 mark. For myself, I am determined to enjoy to the fullest every day I live from this day forward regardless of who I annoy. And I do have a list for this. Some things, I am finding out, are quite true. Just the other night I discovered one of those rumors to be true. I now know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. I had just gone to bed and started my evening dance with the Sandman. As I approached the shores of oblivion, I had the urge to go to the bathroom. I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. Once I got into the bathroom, I closed the door behind me, turned on the light and stood there. For a moment, I did not know where I was and then I could not remember why I was where I was. I thought for a moment and then turned around, walked back to my bed, took off my bathrobe, removed my slippers and tucked myself back into bed. I dozed off for a moment and then, all of a sudden, it occurred to me why I went to the bathroom. So, I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. I closed the door and tried to turn on the light only to discover I was in the closet. Extricating my body from the closet, I headed once more in the direction of the bathroom. This time I found the bathroom. I closed the door, turn on the light and looked in the mirror wondering why I was in the bathroom. I lathered up my face and shaved. I left the bathroom and headed back for bed, removed my slippers and bathrobe and tucked myself snuggly under the sheets. Just as I was dozing off, I remembered why I wanted to go to the bathroom so urgently. I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. It took me a little longer to get to the bathroom this time but as soon as I opened the door, the light went on. In the bathroom was a quart of milk, a pitcher of iced tea, the makings of a salad and some luncheon meat. I poured myself a glass of iced tea, slowly drank it and then headed back for bed. As I snuggled myself back into bed, I heard the person on the other side of the bed moan and mumbled something, You werent in the kitchen were you? No, I said rather sleepily, I was in the bathroom. I soon fell asleep and no sooner did I fall asleep than I awoke with an urge to go to the bathroom. I adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up, put on my bathrobe, and made my way toward the bathroom. This time, when I opened the door the light did not go on so I had to switch the light on myself. I stood there, looked in the mirror, picked up my toothbrush and toothpaste and began brushing my teeth. I gargled good and long with mouthwash, turned off the light and headed back for bed. From the other side of the bed I heard another moan, Were you brushing your teeth? No, I muttered incoherently, I got a drink of tea from the kitchen. You shouldnt drink tea before you go to bed, itll make you go to the bathroom. I soon fell asleep but was awakened with a very urgent need to go to the bathroom. In a panic I stumbled out of bed, could not find my slippers, my bathrobe was nowhere to be found but I had to go to the bathroom. The next thing I remember the alarm clock was ringing and it was seven oclock in the morning. I still do not know if I ever went to the bathroom but now I know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. That morning in my devotions, I read from the Psalms. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread (Psalm 37:25 KJV). I am thinking this 60something is going to require some fancy footwork.

From E, the Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Ive been hearing more and more references to the need to clean up our agricultural practices for reasons pertaining to health, food quality, even global warming. What are the major environmental issues today associated with agriculture? -Tony Grayson, Newark, NJ What amazes many environmental advocates to this day is how the widespread adoption of synthetic chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers for use in agriculture was dubbed the Green Revolution, when in fact this post-World War II paradigm shift in the way we produce food has wreaked untold havoc on the environment, food quality and human health. Agricultural output has certainly increased as a result of these changes, but with the vast majority of the worlds farms now relying on petroleum-derived synthetic chemicals to grow crops and petroleumderived fuels to drive the engines of production modern agriculture has become overwhelmingly toxic to the atmosphere and is hastening global warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that agricultural land use contributes 12 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions; here in the U.S. almost 20 percent of our carbon dioxide emissions come from agricultural sources. Intensive use of chemicals isnt good for our nutrition intake, either. Overworked, depleted agricultural soils generate fruits and vegetables with fewer nutrients and minerals than those produced by farmers decades ago. And much of the food we eat is laced with chemicals that end up in our bloodstreams. Beyond its effect on the food we put in our bodies, modern agriculture generates large amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and other fertilizers running off into our streams, rivers and oceans, compromising not only the quality of our drinking water and the health of riparian ecosystems, but also causing those huge oxygen-depleted ocean dead zones we hear about in coastal areas such as the Gulf of Mexico. Yet another issue with modern farming is the amount of animal waste generated and concentrated in small areas, which creates unsanitary and potentially dangerous conditions for the animals and humans alike. And the widespread use of antibiotics on farm animals to keep disease in check results in the development of stronger strains of bacteria that resist the antibiotics used by humans to ward off infection and sickness. Also, many worry about the potential impacts of the widespread use of genetic engineering, whereby genes in plants, animals and microorganisms are manipulated to select for specific traits. These genetically modified organisms, reports Greenpeace, can spread through nature and interbreed with natural organisms, thus contaminating the natural environment in unforeseeable and uncontrollable ways. The good news is that rapidly increasing consumer demand for healthier food is forcing agribusiness to see the wisdom of moving away from business-as-usual. Organic farming, which eschews chemical fertilizers and pesticides in favor of more natural choices, holds considerable promise for greening up our agricultural systems. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, organic cropland acreage averaged 15 percent increases between 2002 and 2008, although certified organic cropland and pasture accounted for only about 0.6 percent of U.S. total farmland in 2008. So we still have along way to go. CONTACTS: IPCC, www.ipcc.ch; USDA, www.ers.usda.gov/Data/Organic. Dear EarthTalk: Why cant plastics of all types, instead of being initially sorted, simply be melted together to be separated later? It must be a monumental and error-prone task to separate truckloads of plastics. -L. Schand, via e-mail The reason plastics arent typically melted together and then separated later is a matter of both physics and economics. When any of the seven common types of plastic resins are melted together, they tend to separate and then set in layers. The resulting blended plastic is structurally weak and difficult to manipulate. While the layered plastic could in theory be melted again and separated into its constituent resins, the energy inputs required to do so would make such a process cost prohibitive. As a result, recycling facilities sort their plastics first and then melt them down only with other items made of the same type of resin. While this process is labor-intensive, the recycling numbers on the bottom of many plastic items make for quicker sorting. Many recycling operations are not only reducing sizable amounts of waste from going into landfills but are also profitable if managed correctly. Manufacturers of plastic items choose specific resins for different applications. Recycling like items together means the reclaimed polymer can be used to create new items just like their virgin plastic forebears. The seven common types of plastic are: #1 Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE); #2 High-density polyethylene (HDPE); #3 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC); #4 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE); #5 Polypropylene (PP); #6 Polystyrene (PS); and #7 Other/Mixed (O). One complicating factor is trying to recycle unmarked plastics and those embossed with a #7 (representing mixed resins, also known as polycarbonate). According to Earth911, a leading online source for finding recyclers for specific types of items across the United States, in some cases #7 plastics can be down-cycled into non-renewable resin; in other cases recycling operations just send their unmarked and #7 plastics into local landfills. But even though recycling operations have developed relatively efficient systems for generating reclaimed resins, many environmentalists recommend that consumers still avoid plastics as much as possible. Simply recycling these products does not negate the environmental damage done when the resource is extracted or when the product is manufactured, reports EcoCycle, a Colorado-based non-profit recycler with an international reputation as an innovator in resource conservation. The group adds that over the past half century, the use of disposable packagingespecially plastichas increased by more than 10,000 percent. Along these lines, products (or packaging) made out of reusable metal, glass or even wood are preferable to equivalent items made from plastic. For starters, an item of metal, glass or wood can be reused by someone else or recycled much more efficiently than plastic when it does reach the end of its useful life to you.

The first transcontinental airmail flight from New York to San Francisco was flown in 1920 and the first jet transpacific flight was made in 1952. President Eisenhower moved us into the space age when he signed the NASA & Space Act of 1958. Accordingly, we take off from Pun Alleys short runway into the skies with some pilot axioms. Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger, if you pull the stick back they get smaller. Speed is life; altitude is life insurance. No one has ever collided with the sky. The only time you have too much fuel is when youre on fire. Flying is not dangerous; crashing is dangerous. Learn from the mistakes of others. You wont live long enough to make all of them yourself. Gravity sucks! Helicopters cant really fly. Theyre just so ugly that the earth immediately repels them. The probability of survival is equal to the angle of arrival. A pilot is a confused soul who talks about women when hes flying, and about flying when hes with a woman. Try to keep the number of your landings equal to the number of your takeoffs. There are old pilots, and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold, pilots! Flying is hours of boredom, punctuated by moments of stark terror. Never let an airplane take you somewhere your brain didnt get to five minutes earlier. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing: Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. Fright flight A blonde had to fly to another country. Having never been on an airplane before she was excited. As soon as she boarded the plane, a Boeing 747, she started jumping in excitement, went seat-to-seat and shouted, BOEING! BOEING! BOEING! Annoyed by the noise and ruckus, a flight attendant had to shout, Be silent! The blonde stared at the flight attendant for a moment, concentrated really hard, and all of a sudden started shouting, OEING! OEING! OEING! The jet fighter Bernie, a boy in Israel, decided he wanted to be an aeronautical engineer and build airplanes. He studied hard, went to the best schools, and got his degree. It didnt take long before he gained a reputation as the one of the finest aeronautical engineers. When the Israel government wanted an advanced jet fighter, Bernies company got the contract and he was the lead designer. Unfortunately during the first test flight disaster struck when the wings broke off of the fuselage. Bernie redesigned the jet fighter, but the same thing happened again at the next flight. Beside himself with Pun Alley takes flight with aviation history P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank worry, Bernie went to his synagogue to pray. The rabbi saw Bernies sadness and asked him what was the matter. After hearing the problem with the jet fighter, the rabbi told him, I know how to solve your problem. All you have to do is drill a row of holes where the wing meets the fuselage. If you do this, I absolutely guarantee the wings wont fall off. Bernie just smiled and thanked the rabbi for his advice, but the more he thought about it, the more he realized he had nothing to lose. So Bernie did exactly what the rabbi told him to do. They drilled a row of holes where the wings meet the fuselage. The next flight went perfectly. Later, Bernie told the rabbi that his advice had worked. Naturally, said the rabbi, I never doubted it would. But Rabbi, how did you know that drilling the holes would prevent the wings from falling off? Bernie, the rabbi intoned, Im an old man. Ive lived for many years and Ive celebrated Passover many times. And in all those years, not once has the matzah broken on the perforation. Irishmen flying high Two Irishmen hired an open cockpit airplane to fly over Dublin on St Patricks Day. As they were winging their way through the air, OToole turned to his friend, Murphy and said, Murphy, Im going to fly upside down. Begorrah, OToole, shouted Murphy, dont do that, well fall out. No we wont, responded OToole, Ill still talk to you. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Marion County Continuity of Care Council will hold the third annual Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal-thon on Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Angela Santos VFW Post 4781, 9401 S.W. 110th St., just off State Road 200 (across from Oak Run) in Ocala from noon to 4 p.m. to raise funds for the Ocala Honor Flight. The Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal-thon is that opportunity to bring in that old lamp, painting, classic toy or great grand dads lucky silver dollar to find out the value. Just like on the PBS TV show. You will receive a verbal appraisal and talk with the certified appraiser. It will be a fun filled day with the appraisals, a silent auction, food, a LifeSouth blood drive for the Veterans Hospital and knowing that you are supporting a great cause. Verbal appraisals will include: personal property, jewelry, coins, and WWII era memorabilia. No stamps or large furniture, please. The donation amount will be $5 per item (limit 6 items). Also, there will be a silent auction and lunch will be available for a minimal donation. Marion County Continuity of Care Council is looking to raise $2,000 or more to aid Honor Flight in its mission to take our World War II vets to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II memorial. The next Honor Flight is Oct. 27. Our WWII vets from the Greatest Generation, most of whom have not visited the WWII memorial, are passing on at an alarming rate. The Ocala Honor Flights goal is to help every single veteran in America, willing and able to get on a plane or a bus, to visit their memorial.

The seven common types of plastic are: #1 Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE); #2 High-density polyethylene (HDPE); #3 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC); #4 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE); #5 Polypropylene (PP); #6 Polystyrene (PS); and #7 Other/Mixed (O). One complicating factor is trying to recycle unmarked plastics and those embossed with a #7 (representing mixed resins, also known as polycarbonate). According to Earth911, a leading online source for finding recyclers for specific types of items across the United States, in some cases #7 plastics can be down-cycled into non-renewable resin; in other cases recycling operations just send their unmarked and #7 plastics into local landfills. But even though recycling operations have developed relatively efficient systems for generating reclaimed resins, many environmentalists recommend that consumers still avoid plastics as much as possible. Simply recycling these products does not negate the environmental damage done when the resource is extracted or when the product is manufactured, reports EcoCycle, a Colorado-based non-profit recycler with an international reputation as an innovator in resource conservation. The group adds that over the past half century, the use of disposable packagingespecially plastichas increased by more than 10,000 percent. Along these lines, products (or packaging) made out of reusable metal, glass or even wood are preferable to equivalent items made from plastic. For starters, an item of metal, glass or wood can be reused by someone else or recycled much more efficiently than plastic when it does reach the end of its useful life to you.

The first transcontinental airmail flight from New York to San Francisco was flown in 1920 and the first jet transpacific flight was made in 1952. President Eisenhower moved us into the space age when he signed the NASA & Space Act of 1958. Accordingly, we take off from Pun Alleys short runway into the skies with some pilot axioms. Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger, if you pull the stick back they get smaller. Speed is life; altitude is life insurance. No one has ever collided with the sky. The only time you have too much fuel is when youre on fire. Flying is not dangerous; crashing is dangerous. Learn from the mistakes of others. You wont live long enough to make all of them yourself. Gravity sucks! Helicopters cant really fly. Theyre just so ugly that the earth immediately repels them. The probability of survival is equal to the angle of arrival. A pilot is a confused soul who talks about women when hes flying, and about flying when hes with a woman. Try to keep the number of your landings equal to the number of your takeoffs. There are old pilots, and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold, pilots! Flying is hours of boredom, punctuated by moments of stark terror. Never let an airplane take you somewhere your brain didnt get to five minutes earlier. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing: Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. Fright flight A blonde had to fly to another country. Having never been on an airplane before she was excited. As soon as she boarded the plane, a Boeing 747, she started jumping in excitement, went seat-to-seat and shouted, BOEING! BOEING! BOEING! Annoyed by the noise and ruckus, a flight attendant had to shout, Be silent! The blonde stared at the flight attendant for a moment, concentrated really hard, and all of a sudden started shouting, OEING! OEING! OEING! The jet fighter Bernie, a boy in Israel, decided he wanted to be an aeronautical engineer and build airplanes. He studied hard, went to the best schools, and got his degree. It didnt take long before he gained a reputation as the one of the finest aeronautical engineers. When the Israel government wanted an advanced jet fighter, Bernies company got the contract and he was the lead designer. Unfortunately during the first test flight disaster struck when the wings broke off of the fuselage. Bernie redesigned the jet fighter, but the same thing happened again at the next flight. Beside himself with Pun Alley takes flight with aviation history P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank worry, Bernie went to his synagogue to pray. The rabbi saw Bernies sadness and asked him what was the matter. After hearing the problem with the jet fighter, the rabbi told him, I know how to solve your problem. All you have to do is drill a row of holes where the wing meets the fuselage. If you do this, I absolutely guarantee the wings wont fall off. Bernie just smiled and thanked the rabbi for his advice, but the more he thought about it, the more he realized he had nothing to lose. So Bernie did exactly what the rabbi told him to do. They drilled a row of holes where the wings meet the fuselage. The next flight went perfectly. Later, Bernie told the rabbi that his advice had worked. Naturally, said the rabbi, I never doubted it would. But Rabbi, how did you know that drilling the holes would prevent the wings from falling off? Bernie, the rabbi intoned, Im an old man. Ive lived for many years and Ive celebrated Passover many times. And in all those years, not once has the matzah broken on the perforation. Irishmen flying high Two Irishmen hired an open cockpit airplane to fly over Dublin on St Patricks Day. As they were winging their way through the air, OToole turned to his friend, Murphy and said, Murphy, Im going to fly upside down. Begorrah, OToole, shouted Murphy, dont do that, well fall out. No we wont, responded OToole, Ill still talk to you. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Marion County Continuity of Care Council will hold the third annual Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal-thon on Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Angela Santos VFW Post 4781, 9401 S.W. 110th St., just off State Road 200 (across from Oak Run) in Ocala from noon to 4 p.m. to raise funds for the Ocala Honor Flight. The Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal-thon is that opportunity to bring in that old lamp, painting, classic toy or great grand dads lucky silver dollar to find out the value. Just like on the PBS TV show. You will receive a verbal appraisal and talk with the certified appraiser. It will be a fun filled day with the appraisals, a silent auction, food, a LifeSouth blood drive for the Veterans Hospital and knowing that you are supporting a great cause. Verbal appraisals will include: personal property, jewelry, coins, and WWII era memorabilia. No stamps or large furniture, please. The donation amount will be $5 per item (limit 6 items). Also, there will be a silent auction and lunch will be available for a minimal donation. Marion County Continuity of Care Council is looking to raise $2,000 or more to aid Honor Flight in its mission to take our World War II vets to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II memorial. The next Honor Flight is Oct. 27. Our WWII vets from the Greatest Generation, most of whom have not visited the WWII memorial, are passing on at an alarming rate. The Ocala Honor Flights goal is to help every single veteran in America, willing and able to get on a plane or a bus, to visit their memorial.

N ow that I have safely escaped the infamous 50-something stage of life, I am carefully testing the waters before me. They look calm, but you never can be sure. Moreover, at this juncture of my life I am in no mood for taking chances. Just the other day the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said to me rather sarcastically, How does it feel to be 60-something? I knew she was having too much fun with this so I retorted by saying, I feel like two 30-year-olds. Oh, no, she moaned. I cant handle more than one of you. Ha! Ha! Ha! In her old age, she has not lost any of her sense of humor. I was hoping. I am taking it rather careful, though. I have heard all the rumors about what happens to a person once they pass the 60 mark. For myself, I am determined to enjoy to the fullest every day I live from this day forward regardless of who I annoy. And I do have a list for this. Some things, I am finding out, are quite true. Just the other night I discovered one of those rumors to be true. I now know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. I had just gone to bed and started my evening dance with the Sandman. As I approached the shores of oblivion, I had the urge to go to the bathroom. I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. Once I got into the bathroom, I closed the door behind me, turned on the light and stood there. For a moment, I did not know where I was and then I could not remember why I was where I was. I thought for a moment and then turned around, walked back to my bed, took off my bathrobe, removed my slippers and tucked myself back into bed. I dozed off for a moment and then, all of a sudden, it occurred to me why I went to the bathroom. So, I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. I closed the door and tried to turn on the light only to discover I was in the closet. Extricating my body from the closet, I headed once more in the direction of the bathroom. This time I found the bathroom. I closed the door, turn on the light and looked in the mirror wondering why I was in the bathroom. I lathered up my face and shaved. I left the bathroom and headed back for bed, removed my slippers and bathrobe and tucked myself snuggly under the sheets. Just as I was dozing off, I remembered why I wanted to go to the bathroom so urgently. I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. It took me a little longer to get to the bathroom this time but as soon as I opened the door, the light went on. In the bathroom was a quart of milk, a pitcher of iced tea, the makings of a salad and some luncheon meat. I poured myself a glass of iced tea, slowly drank it and then headed back for bed. As I snuggled myself back into bed, I heard the person on the other side of the bed moan and mumbled something, You werent in the kitchen were you? No, I said rather sleepily, I was in the bathroom. I soon fell asleep and no sooner did I fall asleep than I awoke with an urge to go to the bathroom. I adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up, put on my bathrobe, and made my way toward the bathroom. This time, when I opened the door the light did not go on so I had to switch the light on myself. I stood there, looked in the mirror, picked up my toothbrush and toothpaste and began brushing my teeth. I gargled good and long with mouthwash, turned off the light and headed back for bed. From the other side of the bed I heard another moan, Were you brushing your teeth? No, I muttered incoherently, I got a drink of tea from the kitchen. You shouldnt drink tea before you go to bed, itll make you go to the bathroom. I soon fell asleep but was awakened with a very urgent need to go to the bathroom. In a panic I stumbled out of bed, could not find my slippers, my bathrobe was nowhere to be found but I had to go to the bathroom. The next thing I remember the alarm clock was ringing and it was seven oclock in the morning. I still do not know if I ever went to the bathroom but now I know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. That morning in my devotions, I read from the Psalms. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread (Psalm 37:25 KJV). I am thinking this 60something is going to require some fancy footwork.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com what policies and procedures may need improvement, and where schools may even be exceeding our expectations: 1. Does the school have a policy in place to ensure background screening for all employees of the school? Are teachers, crossing guards, teaching assistants, nurses, cafeteria workers, maintenance people virtually all paid employees screened? 2. What type of background screening is conducted on employees? Is a national criminal background check conducted? Is the school conducting drug and alcohol testing? 3. Does the school permit parents, grandparents and other family members to volunteer? 4. Are non-familial relations (i.e., area residents, nannies, family friends) permitted to volunteer? 5. Is there mandatory background screening for all school volunteers whether they are family members or nonfamilial relations? While some schools engage only in limited county or state checks, the national criminal background check offers the most comprehensive way to investigate someones criminal history within the United States. A national criminal background check searches for criminal and county court records, correctional facility records, and sex offender, terrorist and most wanted criminal records. National criminal background reports show current and historical felony convictions and misdemeanor offenses. Federal and state laws strictly regulate drug testing procedures in order to protect the interests and rights of employers and employees. Should teachers be randomly drug-tested? Practices vary across the country. Teacher drug testing was the subject of court cases in North Carolina and West Virginia, where educators argued that time and costs associated with random tests would be better spent in the classroom. Hence, it is no surprise that if our nations teachers are not subject to drug screening, the volunteers are also getting a free pass. Every school should include a careful review of its states laws, as well as teachers contracts and union agreements, when developing a background screening policy In addition to wanting to serve the best interest of the students, many school boards are open to the idea of background screening because they understand the risks they take by not doing so. The school itself is likely to be held responsible if a child is placed in danger from a volunteer or an employee. For the safety of our students, parents peace of mind and fiscal health of the school, it makes sense for schools to implement a comprehensive background screening program. As parents, we are the best advocates for our childrens safety, and schools should truly be a safe haven. Parents, along with parents associations, teachers unions and school officials, should review the level of access volunteers are granted to the children when building an effective volunteer background check program. Children are our most precious resource and they must be vigorously protected. Ensuring that wolves in volunteers clothing dont enter our childrens vulnerable world is of paramount importance.

Its unacceptable that potentially 49% of Americans will support the other 51%. How can this inequity be fixed? One possible solution is to rein in handouts to people who are not entitled to them, and too restrict other unnecessary spending. Another solution is to implement immediate tax reform. The current system is so full of loopholes, inconsistencies and bandages on top of bandages that the tax code is almost impossible to interpret and administer. It simply isnt an equitable system. Two alternative tax methods are being considered: some people prefer a Fair Tax (national sales tax). Others prefer a Flat Tax (single rate tax). In either case, one or the other, or perhaps a combination of the two, must replace the existing monster. Two benefits of this new tax method are: a logical redistribution of income would occur; some of the responsibility for the payment of taxes would be shifted to the 51% of people who are not paying taxes. Loopholes in the current system that allow corporations to park billions of dollars offshore to avoid paying taxes on their money would be eliminated. There are many other benefits to a new tax system which are too numerous to discuss in this letter. It is up to the individual to become familiar with each method, and then decide which he or she prefers. Some members of Congress actively support a new tax structure. But, we need to aggressively seek out even more supporters of tax reform and keep after them to get it done. Joe OHara Ocala Against Tea PartyThe debt ceiling fight in Washington proves one thing, and that is that the Tea Party is the worst thing to happen to American politics in years. A list of what is wrong with the Tea Party is too long to cite here so I'll just mention the most recent idiocy attributed to them. Currently there is a bill before Congress to raise the debt ceiling. This bill is necessary so that the United States can meet its fiscal obligations and not go into default which would be a catastrophe. The tea baggers in Congress are refusing to sign the bill saying that it contains tax increases. This is not true. The bill proposed by the Obama administration simply closes some tax loop holes and removes some tax subsidies to the rich. This intransigence by the tea baggers makes one wonder if it's the tax issues they object too or is it something else, like their dislike of the Obama administration and their wish for it to fail. Whichever is the case I hope that it will come back to bite them in the next election.

Compiled by Alan Gold HOW THEY VOTED BY BILL TATE Special to the Citizen As the back to school season swings into full gear this fall, there are many opportunities for adults to volunteer and support school activities. Volunteers lend valuable time and assistance to our school systems, and while the majority of school volunteers are law abiding role models for our nations children, unsavory adults sometimes come into the mix. Predators, or wolves in volunteers clothing, can be quite wily at finding ways to be near children. When the infamous bank robber, Willie Sutton, was asked why he stole from banks, he said, Because thats where the money is. Individuals who work closely with children, whether it is a teacher or a volunteer, a coach or cafeteria or maintenance worker, should be subject to background screening before their interaction begins. Most of us assume that every adult working closely with our children is carefully vetted by the schools with which they are associated. The practice of background checks for school employees is standard issue for all employees with access to children. Background checks reduce organizational liability and help protect children. So why should this practice differ with school volunteers? Depending on the role of the volunteers and the level of supervision they will have, many believe school volunteers should be subject to the same screening criteria as any other school employee. While not universal, more and more school districts across the country are adopting policies mandating that volunteers who interact with students must go through a criminal background check first. School districts in Charlotte, Nashville, Seattle, and San Antonio, for example, actively screen all volunteers who will interact with students. However, such policies are not in place in all school districts. Some schools are concerned that background checks on volunteers will reduce volunteer involvement. But every school needs to carefully consider who they allow to interact with their students on school GUEST COLUMN Avoid wolves in volunteers clothing at school Why background screening for school volunteers is important grounds and at school sponsored activities. Background checks on school volunteers may reveal that someone has a criminal history or is living under an alias. Most parents dont want volunteers who have misdemeanor and felony convictions at their school. It is important that parent volunteers dont become offended when asked to go through a background check. A comprehensive screening policy should dictate that everyone interacting with the students be screened even if they are a parent of a current student. Most parents will understand this need and will support the school districts commitment to student safety. Parents should inquire about the background screening policy at their childs school. This will allow parents to better understand the schools position on the issue and what will be required of them if they have the opportunity to volunteer. If there is no background screening policy for volunteers, ask for one. It is important that schools establish criteria for background checks, and guidelines for unsupervised access to children. What level of access is the volunteer given? Are they alone with children in the classroom? Are they transporting students in a vehicle? Are they acting as the primary student supervisors on overnight trips? As a parent and human resources professional, I believe that all concerned parents should be active in ensuring that a background screening process is in place for all people who come into contact with their child at school. There is nothing more important than the safety and security of our children. As our children return to school this fall, I recommend that we ask our school administrators the following questions. With the answers to these questions, we learn PLEASESEESCHOOL PAGE11 Cooks for the Cure The community of Stone Creek, off Southwest 80th Avenue north of State Road 200, recently held a Cooks for the Cure event to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. Here some of the guests enjoy the spread that was set before them. The traffic toll in Marion County continues to climb. The death toll is now 33. Two people were killed on State Road 40 East, in about the 10000 block early Saturday in a head-on collision. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 1993 Oldsmobile driven by Kimberly Beyers of Silver Springs was heading west on the highway about 5:30 a.m. The car apparently crossed the center line and struck a pickup driven by Richard Mays, 85, of Cross City. The pickup overturned. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the pickup, Walter Evans, 67, also from Cross City, was taken to Shands in Gainesville. His injuries were listed as minor. All three people involved in the accident were wearing seatbelts. A dog was also injured in the accident.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Found ring To the gentleman who found my husbands wedding ring in Wendys across the road on the Southwest 200 Corridor on July 17, I cant thank you enough. Its hard to believe there are people like you who are honest. God bless you and yours. Naomi Brauer Ocala Rick Scott neededThank God for Rick Scott. So much bellyaching from the left it is enough to make one vomit. Rick Scott was elected by the majority. Why you ask? Could it be the left was doing a lousy job and it was time for a change? The left thought it was time for a change when they elected Barack Obama so it was a great idea to bring on the change. Well how is that working for us (not so good I would say). Unions representing all law enforcement members do not want to see 19 county's privatize prisons. Could it be they may lose revenue for the Democratic Party? The answer is to take Rick Scott to court. The left does not want to see a constitutional amendment on next year's ballot that would make funding to religious institutions available, Hmm why would that be? Apparently they are happy with the less than adequate status of our public schools that have provided a constant 46th to 49th placement The more money Florida citizens dump into the corrupted school system the lower our children function, however the private schools consistently rate higher, oh, but wait, the private schools also teach history, not revisionist history, what a novel idea. Private schools also teach morals, and integraity, also novel to public schools. Answer another lawsuit for Rick Scott. A challenge of a new state election law that changed early-voting procedures, that will curb the process of collecting signatures for amendments and create a hardship for those out there trying to collect signatures from the illegal and the dead. May I remind everyone that only a short time ago there was only one day to vote, that is until the left decided it was not fair, not enough time to get those so needed signatures to create their voting fraud. Voila: another lawsuit against Rick Scott. Next Rick Scott dares to want drug-testing of state workers. Wow what a terrible person he is. Does the left feel like their base cannot pass such a test? Oh well just take Rick Scott to court! Last but not least redistricting. The left is not happy with the present districts in Florida, so I will remind all of you that the last time Florida went through redistricting, it was the left that did it, but of course there will be many more lawsuits to come because Rick Scott and the new Florida legislators will be blamed for all of this. You just can not make some people happy no matter what is done. Rick Scott and the legislators are my heroes for trying to clean up the mess that was left to them by the Rino's and Democrats. Keep up the good work! Linda Miller Ocala Drain on Medicare Medicare does not make any rules. Congress makes the rules. Congress decides how much money Medicare is given to operate. Congress does not allow Medicare to question a bill except as it relates to the area normal charge. Medicare is restricted to finding out if a service was provided. Medicare has sued and collected many billions of dollars from healthcare companies, especially Floridas now Governor Rick Scott who took the Fifth Amendment 75 times and whose healthcare company paid 1.7 billion dollars for fraud. Rick Scott received a golden parachute of 300 million dollars on leaving Columbia/HCA. Private healthcare companies are responsible for the drain on Medicare, not patients. Alan Gold Ocala Vandals bewareThis letter is to the person who vandalized the mens room at the indoor pool in Oak Run, a 55-plus community in Ocala. I find it so hard to believe that this was done by a resident of our fine community, but the question I want to ask is why did you do it? If for some reason you have a gripe with the management of our community going into the mens room and causing a flood is not going to settle that difference between you and management. Did you think that such an act would cause management any inconvenience? Your thinking that management would suffer by the closing of this facility due to flood damage you did was a totally wrong assumption on your part. Did you not stop and think that these buildings and contents therein are all under insurance? Management most likely reported this incident to the Sheriffs Office and then put in a claim to their insurance company to cover the damages. The insurance company will send out a representative to assess the damages, and then decide on a payment to repair all the damage that you caused. This could take weeks. In the meantime the facility will be closed to all residents. Didn't you consider some residents use this facility every day for health reasons? The closing of this facility only hurts the residents because they are the ones denied access to it. You are a selfish person to think only of your small problem whatever it may be, and not the welfare of all the residents of the Oak Run community. I myself would gladly contribute to a fund to have security cameras installed in all the facilities in our fine community so this will not ever happen again without the vandal being exposed and reported to the police. If you are a resident of our great community, and I pray that you're not, you must know that every neighborhood has a representative. Some neighborhoods have two representatives, and the representatives are elected to resolve any problems or complaints you may have, and to act as your liaison with management. The neighborhood representative is your link to getting things done for all concerned. If you are not a resident well then there is such a thing as small claims court or an attorney and fight it out with management in court. Leave the residents alone. We pay amenities every month for the use of the wonderful facilities we have here in our community and we don't like anyone messing with them. So be careful next time you decide to do any damage, you will not be in a winning situation next time. Rosemarie Peluso Neighborhood Representative and Treasurer of Oak RunThoughts regarding tax reformTell me it isnt so! 53% of Americans are paying 100% of our income taxes and 47% are paying no income tax at all? Yep, thats the truth! 25 years ago, only 19% of Americans paid no income taxes, but that figure has grown to the current 47%. If this trend continues, America will reach the tipping-point over 51% of non-taxpayers in 2015.

The event marked the 10th anniversary of the local center at Skylark Plaza on Northeast 25th Avenue. After six consecutive months of steady decline in the unemployment rate, joblessness in Workforce Connections threecounty region rose in June from 11.5 to 12.2 percent, according to information released today by the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation. The increase in unemployment in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties has been experienced to some degree by every county in Florida. While the increase is typically a reflection of seasonal impacts, not necessarily a sign that the economy is worsening, it doesnt suggest strong gains, either at least not locally. Rusty Skinner, Workforces chief executive officer, said Seasonal unemployment is creating a big distortion in the picture of where we are. But even if seasonality is removed, were not showing an economy thats showing any significant growth. The unemployment rate in June for Citrus, Levy and Marion counties is 1.1 percentage points above Floridas not seasonally adjusted rate of 11.1 percent, and 2.9 percent higher than the national rate. The regional rate is down from 13.3 percent a year ago. Skinner said noted that Citrus and Levy counties experienced growth in both the labor force and employment and decreases to the number of unemployed. The number of unemployed in Marion County dropped significantly since June 2010, from 18,284 to 16,774, while the labor force and employment shrank slightly. Out of a regional labor force of 208,575, the number of those without jobs increased by 1,531 to 25,547, and those with jobs dropped by 1,255 to 183,028. Here is how the counties fared in June: Citrus Countys unemployment rate of 11.8 percent is up from 11 percent in May; its labor force shrank by 286 to 58,131, the number of employed dropped by 721 to 51,299 while those unemployed increased by 435 to 6,832. Levy County posted an 11.1-percent unemployment rate, up from 10.3 percent; its labor force decreased by 146 to 17,409, the number of those employed dropped by 286 to 315,468, and those without jobs also dropped by 140 to 1,941. Marion Countys unemployment rate rose from 12 to 12.6 percent; its labor force expanded by 536 to 133,035 while the number of those employed collapsed by 391 to 116,261 and unemployment rose from by 927 to 16,774. For the second consecutive month, the Ocala Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) held its ranking of fourth highest unemployment rate among the states 23 MSAs down from second in March and third in April behind Palm Coasts 14.6 percent, Miami-Miami Beach at 13.9 percent and Sebastian-Vero Beach at 13.5 percent. Among Floridas 67 counties, Marion Countys unemployment ranks as seventh highest, Citrus County is 10th and Levy County is 21st. Total nonagricultural employment for the Ocala MSA was 89,100, down 1,200 over May but only 700 fewer jobs a year ago. Year-to-year gains were reported in retail trade; transportation, warehousing and utilities; and education and health services. Skinner said, we have to acknowledge the fact that it jumped up. Certainly this is the time when college students return home looking for work which results in expansion of the labor force Skinner said. What we also see is a number of teachers and school-based employees that shrink during the summer months, and government shrinkage as well.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in T he term skunk works originated in the comic strip Lil Abner. It meant a job nobody wanted. The expression morphed into meaning high technology research and development projects done in secret by a small group of scientists or engineers looking for a radical solution to a problem. A skunk-works group of bi-partisan U.S. Senators have worked diligently behind closed doors for months seeking a formula which might solve the national debt and deficit problem. Theyre known as The Gang of Six. At this writing (Saturday, July 23), while there is no agreed solution to the national debt and deficit crisis, we think the Gang of Six merit applause for their statesman-like efforts, despite the political maneuvering going on around them. There have been other notable skunk works in our history. John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Robert Livingston, and Roger Sherman risked their reputations, their possessions, and their lives as members of the Committee of Five which drafted the Declaration of Independence. King George III of England would have lopped off their heads had he known what they were up to. Because the Senate considers itself a gentlemans club and has no power to lop off heads, the most serious risks to the Gang of Six have been the displeasure of party leaders and possible anger of voters. Democrats Mark Warner of Virginia, Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Kent Conrad of North Dakota have been willing to ignore their partys obsession with deficit spending, borrowing, and more taxation. Republicans Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma have been rubbing their partys fur the wrong way by considering proposals for tax reform revenue in addition to less spending. Meanwhile, in between campaign trips President Obama called a succession of meetings with congressional leaders without ever offering up a plan of his own. The White House approach has been If nothing works, its your fault! The Presidents late and passive participation in the debt/deficit process has been an extension of his indifference to his own Fiscal Responsibility Commission in April. He didnt even attend the meeting at which they presented their recommendations. Creating a debt and deficit Commission was just reelection campaign showmanship. Like the Gang of Six, most of the members of the presidents Commission put their patriotic responsibility ahead of their political allegiances. They too deserve some applause for their statesmanship. Too many Washington politicians equate compromise with cowardice. They are unwilling to risk their cherished careers in public service to practice statesmanship. They have forgotten, or never knew, that our Constitution was a compromise without which there would have been no United States of America. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 H onest, I heard some guy on a TV station say this: Our national nightmare is over. So was he talking about the debt ceiling crisis, the government shutdown threat? No, he was talking about the National Football League lockout. I like sports as much as anyone. The only pay packages we subscribe to in my house are the Major League Baseball Extra Innings package and the NFL Red Zone (no HBO, Showtime or junk like that). But a national nightmare? Come on. Was there ever any doubt that the billionaires who own the NFL teams and the millionaires who play the games would get together to work out some financial solution? Sure, it dragged on over the past several months, but no one was playing football then anyway. Now the only casualty appears to be the Hall of Fame game, which was pretty much a farce, played at a high school stadium in Canton, Ohio. Maybe to make up for lost concessions they can add a game between Canton McKinley and Westerville North, or something like that, and probably generate more interest. The regular season starts in September, and all you NFL addicts will have your fill of grunts, hits, passes, runs and, dont forget, concussions. This week the players are heading back to training camp, and well find out how much those voluntary workouts kept them in shape. Teams will be signing free agents, too, and you wont be able to tell the players without a scorecard. Of course, weve been hearing free agent and trade rumors all summer, thanks to guys like Mike and Mike, who have four hours to kill every morning and evidently dont know the baseball season is at the height of interest. Lets see: Cincinnati must be a mess. Carson Palmer, the quarterback, is Bengals property but doesnt want to be there. Chad Ochocinco (that means eight five) says he loves Cincinnati, but he may not be able to stay there. (Incidentally, he wears 85, but if my basic Spanish is still accurate, that would be ochenta y cinco.) Peyton Manning has a pain in the neck (from surgery, not his brother), so his status is unknown. Tiki Barber wants to come back, and give up life as a TV announcer thank goodness. Then there are the Jacksonville Jaguars, who cant sell out half the time, and theres talk of moving them somewhere. The Tampa Bay Bucs seem to be Floridas best bet for a playoff team, but well see what they do in free agency. And on and on it goes. It should all come together in September, and end in February, just before baseball spring training starts. Wait! The NBA is also in a lockout, and I just skipped over the entire basketball season. Do you suppose anyone will notice? Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at. editor@smcitizen.com. PUBLISHER : GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen S ome 60 years ago, a technological concept called a computer was developed with little to no vision of how it was going to change the world we live in. Who would have imagined a machine that took up an entire room would morph into something small enough to sit on a lap and go on to guide spacecraft throughout the universe, change the military approach to war, banking, medicine, and make the encyclopedia obsolete? The ever-evolving world of computers changes instantly there is always a new version on the horizon. The same can be said about the criminal. There is a negative side to the computer revolution: there are sexual predators out there who see it as a means to connect up with and harm our innocent children. A recent press conference was held at the Emergency Operations Center in Lecanto in Citrus County to announce an Internet sting operation called Operation Cyber Guardian. After months of undercover talking with people targeting children and young teens for sex via the Internet, 18 people were arrested from across the state, along with a man from Ocala. Ranging in age from 17 to 70, the men arrested clearly believed they were chatting with the parents of underage children or a sexy teenager who were willing to trade sex for money. They even showed up to the sting with Happy Meals and a red slushy as signs of misplaced affection. By placing properly worded ads in the appropriate places visited by people described by Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy as the 800-pound gorilla in the room, law enforcement was able to set the dragnet to catch and stop them from targeting innocent victims. Local operatives in the task force never initiated the online chats and never had any verbal conversations until the men appeared at the door of the undercover house. The sting operation had been up and running for six months and followed on the heels of an operation called Grim Reaper that netted 22 arrests in October. The scary part of the situation is, these people are actually out there aggressively looking to harm innocent children. With cell phones, texting, iPads and computers readily available and in the hands of our children, kids are vulnerable to such communications. The person on the other end of cyber space message is a friend. Active enforcement is the way to go and Sheriff Dawsy, the deputies in the sex crime unit and all involved in the process should be commended for their dedication to keeping these predators at bay. Our children are a precious resource and should never have to deal with the results of such heinous acts by deprived minds. There are laws in place to protect our youths and they must be diligently enforced. To our law enforcement officials, keep sending the message to the predators that this will never be tolerated. If you even consider doing it, theres a good chance you will find yourself in jail and branded as a sexual predator for life. There has to be some method of stopping such vile acts.

BY MONTE DUTTON King FeaturesLOUDON, N.H. -When Ryan Newman crossed the finish line at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, having won for the 15th time in his Sprint Cup career, he enjoyed a pleasing, but rare, overlap. Newman also started on the pole in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301. It was the 47th pole of Newman's career. Only nine drivers have ever won more. But it was only the fourth time Newman won after starting out front. "We backed up what everybody said we couldn't back up," he said. "That was our qualifying effort on Friday. I had won three for 46, now four for 47. "We'll relish this moment and figure out what we did right so we can keep doing it." Eight of Newman's 15 career victories occurred in 2003, when he drove for Roger Penske. He was selected as Cup's 2002 Rookie of the Year over Jimmie Johnson, who has since won five championships. Newman's owner and teammate, Tony Stewart, finished second, marking the first time teammates both started and finished 12, in the same order, since 1957. As the laps wound down, Newman had track position but was low on fuel. He managed to save enough fuel to maintain the lead and hold off Stewart's charge. "One of the best cars here is the '14' (Stewart). There were a couple other cars at different times, but the '14' was mired back in traffic," said Newman. "He had to run the wheels off of it to get up to where he had some track position so he could try to run us down. "Fortunately, it stayed green. I was more worried about a yellow coming out with five to go. 'Do we have enough fuel for a greenwhite-checkered (finish)? Usually those things that come and squash us didn't happen today. Maybe a change of luck for us from that standpoint." Newman, like Stewart, is a native of Indiana. The 33Newman relishes win at New Hampshire track year-old South Bend native graduated from Purdue University in 2001 with a degree in vehicle structure engineering. Now eighth in the Sprint Cup point standings, Newman became the 13th driver to win in the season's first 19 races. Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Leisure ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A misunderstanding tests the temperament of the sometimes headstrong Aries. Instead of blowing your top, take time for a pleasant diversion while things cool down. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A workplace problem could make the divine Bovine see red. But talk it out before you consider walking out. Some surprising facts emerge that change your earlier focus. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You face a choice between ignoring your uneasy feelings about your relationship with that special person and demanding explanations. A close friend offers wise counsel. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change youd been hoping for carries an unexpected complication. Stay the course, and things will work themselves out. Be sure to make time for family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22 ) Aspects favor spending time with loved ones. On the job, new ideas are generally welcomed. But some demands for changes could cause problems. Be ready to defend your choices. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Good news: That workplace problem is close to being resolved with results that should please everyone. Take time off to indulge your love of fun and games. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Most of the time you are the most unflappable person around. But be ready to be thrown off-balance in the nicest way when Cupid takes aim in your direction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Its not often when someone tries to sting the sharp-witted Scorpion. But it can happen. Continue to be skeptical about anything that seems too good to be true. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your strong sense of self-esteem helps you serve as a role model for someone who needs personal reassurances. Your efforts pay off in an unexpected way. CAPRICORN (De. 22 to Jan. 19) Someone close considers revealing a painful secret. Withhold judgment. Instead, open your generous heart, and offer dollops of your love and understanding. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your talents as a peacemaker are called upon once more as an old problem re-emerges with new complications. Move cautiously in order to avoid falling into hidden traps. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your artistic side is enhanced with the reception given to your new project. Use this success as encouragement toward fulfilling your larger goals. BORN THIS WEEK: Your natural sense of leadership is combined with a deep sense of responsibility. People trust you to give them both guidance and understanding.

The FWC tested 910 free-ranging deer during the past year and 5,519 deer during the past nine years, with no CWD-positive results. "We are fortunate that no Florida deer has tested positive for CWD. The effect this disease has had in other states is substantial," Cory Morea, FWC's deer coordinator and biologist, said. "We would like to obtain more samples of deer from areas adjacent to captive deer facilities, because the most likely way for CWD to be introduced into Florida is through the importation of deer from other states." CWD is a contagious neurological disease that has been found in captive and wild mule deer, white-tailed deer, moose and Rocky Mountain elk within several Western states and more recently Eastern states. The disease causes degeneration of the brain of infected animals, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and death. Virginia and West Virginia are the only southeastern states where CWD has been detected. To reduce the chances of CWD entering Florida, the state prohibits importing live deer unless they come from a herd that has been certified CWD-free for five or more years. Additionally, importation of any species of deer, elk or moose carcasses, with the exception of cleaned skull caps, antlers, tanned hides and deboned meat, is prohibited from 19 states and two Canadian provinces where CWD has been detected. Chronic wasting disease has been detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota and Maryland, and Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. Visit the CWD Alliance website at www.cwdinfo.org for the most up-to-date CWD reporting. "Early detection is the key to limiting the spread of the disease, if such an outbreak should occur in Florida," Morea said. The FWC is once again turning to hunters and members of the public this hunting season for assistance in helping monitor the state's deer herd for CWD. "We're asking hunters to report any sightings of sick or emaciated deer, or deer found dead from unknown causes," Morea said. "If you see such a deer, do not touch it, but instead contact us as soon as possible by calling toll-free, 866-CWD-WATCH (2939282). Wildlife biologists will respond and, if necessary, collect deer tissue for testing." CWD WATCH is part of an aggressive monitoring program intended to detect CWD in Florida and minimize its impact, should it be found. There is no evidence that CWD poses a risk for humans. However, public health officials recommend avoiding direct contact with any sicklooking deer or one that has died from unknown causes. For more information about CWD surveillance in Florida, go to MyFWC.com/CWD. The website also offers links to wildlife and health agencies with more in-depth information about the disease. Hunters asked to monitor deer for disease The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Wildlife Services and partner agencies are wrapping up a fiveyear avian influenza monitoring project. The project was designed to determine if migratory birds carried the Asian strain of the highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) virus to the U.S. All samples collected by the FWC and other state partners tested negative for any highly pathogenic strains. Biologists started the project in 2006 in an effort to rapidly detect and quickly respond should a highly pathogenic strain reach the U.S. There have been no reported cases of avian influenza in humans in the United States but a number of people in other countries became sick or died from that virus after extensive, direct contact with infected poultry. The USDA and its partners collected more than 450,000 samples nationwide, including 5,200 plus samples from Florida. In Florida, much of the success of this project came from the voluntary participation of duck hunters who allowed biologists to sample the birds they harvested. Biologists collected nearly 3,000 samples at hunter check stations in several of Florida's wildlife management areas. Biologists sampled a wide variety of duck species, including the northern shoveler, gadwall, mottled, mallard and green and blue winged teal.

Friday, July 29, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, July 29, 2011 www.smcitizen.com T he book Buried Prey opens with a grisly scene because a house demolition crew in Minneapolis has unearthed the mummified bodies of two young girls wrapped in plastic. The news has special meaning for Detective Lucas Davenport. Twenty years earlier, as a rookie cop, his first real case involved the disappearance of two teenagersthe Jones sisters. He was working patrol then and briefly as a dope guy and felt that he was learning things at a ferocious rate: about the street, life, death, sex, love, hate, fear, stupidity, jealousy, and accident and all the other things that brought citizens in contact with the cops. Such confidence in his youth made him feel uniquely destined to solve the Jones case. And, of course, that meant he would certainly make a serious blunder. In his pursuit of justice Lucas, with close friend Del Capstock, chases down a homeless man with mental problems, Terry Scrape. Once they smell blood they conclude that their prey is not finished with crime. And about that they were so right. But all that was then. The second half of the novel takes up now and what an older Lucas growth experience forces him to face about underplaying other suspects decades before. The cold light of reason now focuses on one John Fell who existed 25 years ago but was pushed aside to concentrate on Scrape. A sobering truth is that Fell is not the mans real name. And so Davenport seesaws between what his gut tells him and what the flimsy evidence points to. In the end theres a wild ride across the countryside pursuing shaky leads to stop the monster from killing again. Ultimately, Lucas in his wisdom concedes that he hadnt been responsible for the Jones girls but laments the time he wasted on Scrape when he might have saved others. His wife tells him that the world isnt perfect; things just happen. But although he knows he cant fix the world this noble protagonist just wants to try harder. Fans of Sandfords previous 20 Prey novels should enjoy this look back on Davenports early career. The pace is just about perfect and the dialogue is razor sharp. Book tell story of bodies found 20 years after disappearance BURIED PREY By John Sandford B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington The Southwest Florida Water Management District Governing Board Tuesday adopted its proposed fiscal year 2012 (FY2012) millage rate. The proposed FY2012 millage rate of 0.3928 mill takes into account the merger of the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board, and the $108 million cap on ad valorem property tax collections passed by the Florida Legislature. FY2012 will run from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012. The Governing Board merged the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board in May. The merger was implemented to increase efficiency of operations and reduce costs, and is projected to save $350,000 to $400,000 annually. Governor Rick Scott in June signed legislation that caps the taxes Floridas five water management districts can assess on residential and commercial properties. For the owner of a $150,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, the FY2012 Districtwide tax would be $39.28 a year, or about $3.27 per month. Two statutorily required public hearings on the Districts total budget will be held in September. The first will be Sept. 13 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Tampa Service Office. The Governors office and the state legislature will review and approve the budgets of all five water management districts before the second and final public hearing. Water district approves proposed millage rate Employment changes from May to June saw gains in six sectors for an increase of 600 jobs in finance; leisure and hospitality; manufacturing; mining, logging and construction; professional and business services; and retail trade). Four industries showed no change over the month: information; transportation, warehousing and utilities; wholesale trade; and other services. While education and health services dropped since May by 100 to 13,700, it was up by 300 jobs over the year. The biggest hit came to local government employment, which reportedly lost 1,700 jobs, from 14,200 to 12,500 since May, while state and federal jobs experienced no change. For regions, we question that, AWIs Rust said. We have concerns with those local government numbers. Workforce Connection serves career seekers by planning and coordinating training, education and placement opportunities and also provides business development services such as on-the-job training, paid internships and other financial incentives. Last year, more than 36,000 career seekers and 1,600 businesses received services. The local, business-led nonprofit organization works with economic development partners throughout the threecounty region to bring new employers to the area as well as to provide services and hiring and training incentives that help new and existing businesses, large and small.

Late last summer I decided Id had enough of foggy-looking windows and had almost all the windows in my house replaced with very energy efficient ones. Last fall the heating and air conditioning serviceman used very discouraging phrases, such as seriously struggling and badly rusted, when describing the health of my 15 year old system. This spring I replaced it. Yes I received the $1500 energy credit on my 2010 income tax for the windows. Yes the windows and heating and air conditioning really did need replacing. However, I think I will need to live a very, very, very long time if I want to recoup my expenditures with decreased electricity bills. Recently the folks that did my windows came out to see how I liked them and somehow in the process managed to convince me that I ought to get OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 the newest insulation in the attic. In order to pay for itself this latest home improvement will have to reduce my electricity consumption so much SECO pays me! (For some reason I seem to be listening to salesmen lately. I took my car to the dealer for an oil change and while I was waiting I was approached by a new car salesman. Having nothing better to do I listened to his presentation and even took a test drive. Thankfully for my bank balance I went into severe sticker shock at his first bottom line and quickly went back to the service waiting room. I must have been temporarily out of my mind. I cant trade in my bright blue car! Its such an unusual color and Ive been driving it so long, almost 12 years, that people wouldnt know it was me if I drove anything else.)

Earlier this month Showcase of Stars presented an all male program. Turn about is fair play, so on Saturday, Aug. 6, there will be an all ladies singing night at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove. Sorry, no baritones. Admission is free, plus there will be door prizes and 50/50. Come and listen to some talented Oak Runners. You wont be sorry. Do You Remember? Pirates of Oak Run Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the New York Clubs March 2011 Pirates of Oak Run, narrated by Anna Boodee. It will air daily following FYI at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from July 29 to Aug. 5. Oak Run Travel Have you made your plans for the Christmas season yet? If not, why not join the Oak Run group and go to Biloxi for casino tours? The bus will leave on Dec. 23 and return on Dec. 26. The three night accommodations will be at the Beau Rivage (note the change in the hotel) and you will receive $22 in food credits and $25 in rewards play. Call Pat and Art Kreideweis at 352-291-1456 to sign up. The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg has been ranked by the Michelin Guide as the top museum in the American South. This new building is itself a work of art, and you can enjoy all its beauty on Thursday, Nov. 10. We will have a docent tour of the building and an explanation of Dalis artwork. Lunch is available (on your own) in the new cafe either inside or outside by the water. The price of this trip is only $38 and Jan and JoAnn Flickinger will be available to take your reservation. You will also be able to take the tram (for 25 cents) around the area for shops at the Baywalk. There are still a few seats left for the Saturday, Sept. 24, show and dinner at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre where you can enjoy Leading Ladies, an hilarious comedy about two unemployed actors who try to pass themselves off as heirs to a fortune, except the heirs are heiresses. Call Amelia Fiore to reserve your seats for this trip. The price is only $56. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, July 19, we played Best Front and Best Back. We calculated our net score on holes #1 through 9 and then again on holes #10 through #18. The woman or women with the lowest scores on the front 9 and back 9 holes won for each flight. The winners were First Flight Best Front: JT LeMasters, Best Back:, Diana Love; Second Flight Best Front: Lynn Houghton, Best Back: BJ Lassiter; Third Flight Best Front (tie): Judy Klein and Maureen Edwards, Best Back: Ilene Simnowitz. Maureen Edwards was also Closest to the Pin on Hole # 16. Nice play ladies! Royal Oaks Mens Golf On Friday, July 20, the game played was three best net out of four. While the weather was hot and there was little breeze, a total of 42 players participated. The winners with a score of 196 were Steve Kollar, Al Prachel, John Foutty and Joe Paller. Second with a 199 were Sam Sample, Tom Ducz, Dick Rizzo and Chuck Engel. Tied for third with a score of 200 were the teams of Hal Loomis, Tom Morris, Mike Madill, Ed Simnowitz and Mark Best, Londe Bracale, Steve Casner, Art Pruneau. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Steve Szabo, Mike Madill, Sam Sample and Bill Staiger. While the course played well, we could use some rain. Hopefully we will receive much needed moisture by the time of the next round and the temperature will be a few degrees cooler.

Hearon, 27, of Southwest 129th Terrace Road, Dunnellon, was accused of DUI after being stopped on County Road 484 as he attempted to pull one truck in front of another. He told deputies that he had crashed the first truck into a tree, and called a relative who brought the second truck. He was trying to get in front of the original truck when he was spotted by the deputy. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail, where his breath registered at .201 and .183. The legal limit is .08. John Joseph Simeone, 53, of Northwest 115th Avenue, Ocala, was accused of DUI after being stopped on Northwest 110th Avenue for failing to stay in a single lane. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail, where his breath registered .194 and .186. Girl went missing 35 years ago this month C OP SHOP layed start in the summer rainy season. The Phase I order is intended as an alert to prepare for worsening conditions. Under Phase I, residents are asked to check their irrigation systems to ensure they are working properly. This means testing and repairing broken pipes and leaks, and damaged or tilted sprinkler heads. Residents should also check their irrigation timer to ensure the settings are correct and the rain sensor is working properly in accordance with state law. There are no changes to watering days or times in a Phase I water shortage compared to the Districts year-round water conservation measures. This means lawn and landscape watering remains limited to a two-day-per-week schedule, and residents may only water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. In Marion County, people with odd numbered addresses may water on Wednesday and Saturday, even numbered addresses Thursday and Sunday. Non residential properties may water on Tuesday and Friday. No one may water on Monday. Water for no more than one hour per zone. Restrictions apply to private wells and pumps, ground or surface water and water from public and private utilities. Our rainy season has gotten off to a slow start, said Lois Sorensen, District demand management program manager. The regions public water supplies are in relatively good shape for now, but we may need to consider stricter measures if the rest of the rainy season isnt more consistently productive. When Phase I first went into effect, water utilities and their local governments were expected to review and revise their watering restriction enforcement procedures. The extension means they must continue to report enforcement activity to the District on a monthly basis. For additional information about water restrictions and water conservation, please contact your local utility or visit the Districts website which can be found at www.WaterMatters.org/con servation/. To report a possible violation, call 1-800848-0499 or email Water.Restrictions@WaterMatters.org/.

Larry Leonard Hohman, 48, of 2607 N.E. 16th Ave., Ocala, was arrested at 12:32 p.m. Sunday, at 7103 N. Carl G. Rose Highway, Hernando, on an active Vanderburgh County, Ind., warrant for parole violation for failing to register as a sex offender in reference to an original felony charge of sex offense crimes against children and as a fugitive from justice. He was given no bond. According to the Americas Most Wanted website, Hohman was convicted in 1999 of molesting two young boys. He was convicted of nine felony child molesting charges and one count each of intimidation and battery. He was sentenced to 10 years, but released early on parole with the legal requirement that he provide his address to the state. Hohman violated parole in 2005 Effective Aug. 15, the Ocala Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. Congressional budget cuts have forced reduced public hours. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-toface service with the visiting public without incurring the cost of overtime. Congress provided Social Security with nearly $1 billion less than the president requested for the budget this fiscal year, which makes it impossible for the agency to provide the amount of overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has in the past. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to an office. For example, anyone wishing to apply for benefits, sign up for direct deposit, replace a Medicare card, obtain a proof of income letter or inform us of a change of address or telephone number may do so at www.socialsecurity.gov or by calling our toll-free number, 1-800-7721213. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778. The Ocala office is at 217 S.E. First Ave. Ocala Social Security office shortens hours Office to close at 3:30 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWork on new road starts The first tangible sign of the new road coming to the Corridor has started. Workers began clearing a path for the extension of Southwest 40th Avenue to the north. The avenue is where the new road coming from the to-be-constructed I-75 flyover and extension of 42nd Street will connect with State Road 200.
