A millage rate of 3.89 equates to $3.89 for each $1,000 of taxable property value, or $389 for a home with a taxable value of $100,000. The resulting tax levy is $5 million below the roll-back rate (the amount Marion County collected in taxes in the last fiscal year) and $25 million below the maximum tax levy allowed under Florida law. In short, the 3.89 tentative millage rate will result in a tax savings (compared to the current year) for Marion County citizens. Taxable property values, provided by Property Appraiser Villie Smith, showed that the total taxable property value (used for budgeting purposes) declined by 8 percent this year, resulting in a $5.2 million shortfall. During the last four years, Marion County has experienced a 33 percent drop in taxable property value, a decrease of approximately $7.4 billion. Marion Countys departments and constitutional offices decreased the budget by $32 million, or from $574 million in the 2010-2011 adopted budget to $542 million in the 2011-2012 tentative budget. Commissioners will host two public hearings before approving the final millage rate and budget; the first is set for Sept. 8 at 6:50 p.m. It is open to the public and held at the county government office, (601 S.E. 25th Ave., Ocala).

A 21-year-old southwest Ocala man was accused of armed residential burglary and petit theft after being caught at a residence on State Road 200. Todd K. Drury, of Southwest 76th Avenue, told deputies he was just going into the house to feed the dogs. According to the report, Drury was spotted at the yard next door, standing near a storage shed. After he was told to leave, the resident called 9-11. When deputies responded, they saw Drury at the house next door, carrying an axe. The original family that called 9-1-1 said the axe belonged to them and had been on a table near the shed. The owner of the house next door was contacted and said he did not know the suspect. Drury was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail. Man accused of burglary When anon-descript cardboard box weighing 40 pounds was delivered to Ocala Fire Rescue recently, Battalion Chief Brian Stoothoff knew exactly what was contained within from looking at the return address: The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. This story actually began two years ago. I read in a magazine an article that the Port Authority was offering steel from the World Trade Center to organizations that would commit to creating a display to preserve the memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11. I immediately drafted a letter and completed the required paperwork. I was elated when we received notification that Ocala would be receiving an artifact, said Stoothoff. The piece of steel beam will soon be placed on display inside the Fire Administration building, as a powerful remembrance of the events that unfolded on 9-11-01, where 2,606 civilians including 343 New York firefighters died in the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings. Although the piece of steel is rusted and battered, the steel beam has special meaning. It is not known which tower the steel is from, however it is marked by investigators in white chalk as piece number H-0061s. My hope is to eventually create an exhibit to display the steel beam in a fire station where people can sit and reflect on what happened that day. We have photographs and other memorabilia that we would like to have appropriately displayed states Chief Stoothoff. This September will mark the10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Making changes to lighting are some of the easiest ways to manage electric use and cost. Many inexpensive options exist to help you save watts and dollars including new bulb technology, dimmers, photo sensors and motion sensors. Progress Energy Florida has tips to help customers lighten their electric bills and a chance to win compact-fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Turning off lights that arent in use is one of the easiest and most effective ways to lower your lighting cost. Consider that the average home contains 45 light bulbs. Now take into account that cutting back on four hours of daily use on just four, 60-watt bulbs (the number often contained in a ceiling fan light fixture, for example) could reduce a customers energy costs by more than $45 over the course of a year. The more unnecessary lights that are turned off, the more customers can potentially save. Bulb types Take energy savings one step further and replace traditional incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient CFL bulbs. Prices have dropped on CFL bulbs and now dimmable versions and various light colors (warm or soft white, cool or bright white and daylight or natural) to meet a variety of needs are readily available. Replacing just eight frequently used bulbs with CFLs can save up to $72 per year in electric costs. Not only do CFLs use 75 percent less energy, the bulbs last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Progress Energy is giving way a set of eight CFL bulbs to lucky Florida customers who sign up to follow Progress Energys social media channels on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ProgressEnergyFlorida) or Twitter (@progressenergy) from Aug. 1 to Aug. 10. Five winners will be selected from each social media channel. Complete rules are available at www.progress-energy.com/cflgiveaway. Look into LED (lightemitting diode) bulbs for even more energy savings. A typical LED bulb uses even less electricity than an equivalent CFL. A 100watt traditional bulb running 24 hours a day for a year would cost more than $110 to operate. Running an equivalent CFL bulb for the same amount of time would cost about $25 per year; an LED bulb would cost about $20 per year. Plus, LED bulbs last 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs up to 10 years when used 12 hours a day making them an ideal choice for lights that are difficult to change. Consider your use as LED bulb prices are significantly higher than other types, ranging from about $10 for a 40-watt equivalent bulb to more than $50 for a flood light bulb. Sensors Install motion sensors on outdoor light fixtures and you wont have to remember to turn off the porch light before you go to bed. The outdoor porch or lamp post is one of the mostused home light fixtures, and is the perfect place to install energy-efficient lighting products. Another good application is an often-used hallway. Photo sensors can also help lower energy use by automatically turning lights on at night and off during the day. They are another good option for outdoor lighting. The simplest versions only run a few dollars and simply screw into the existing light socket between the socket and the bulb. Dimmers Dimmers can soften the light level in a home while lowering electric costs. Most modern dimmers clip off part of the alternating current wave form, which is similar to turning the power off for a fraction of a second dozens of times a second. This gives the appearance of a lower or dimmed light level. The electric cost savings is nearly equal to the amount that you dim the lights. Dim the light 25 percent and you save roughly 20 percent of the electricity normally used by the bulb. Rheostat-type dimmers, often found in older homes, do not save energy. They just change the extra power into heat right at the dimmer switch. Also, many CFL and LED bulbs are not dimmable. Progress Energy recommends reading the package labels carefully when selecting bulbs. Making a few changes in bulb types, lighting accessories and habits can add up to big savings on your electric bill every month.For more energy-saving tips visit www.progress-energy.com/save.

Royal Oaks Lady Niners The Lady Niners played a Low Putts game on Thursday, July 21. Many of us would have been in contention if the game had been Most Putts. However, there were a few who knew how to play the game. B.J. Lassiter made a chip-in on the 10th hole and of course it counted as zero putts for that hole! In Flight A, B.J. Lassiter was the winner and Rae Stover came in second place. In Flight B, Vicki Ellin was the winner, and Ilene Simnowitz came in second. Congratulations ladies! The Lady Niners played Throw Out Worst Hole on Thursday, July 28. In Flight A, Elsa Berbig and B.J. Lassiter tied for first place. Patty Waddell and Cindy Kocher tied for second. In Flight B, Carolee Riola and Eleanor Cerlenko tied for first place. Vicki Ellin, Joyce Madill and Diana Schmidt tied for second. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, July 26, we played one of our favorite games, Throw Out Two Worst Holes. We each had the opportunity to deduct our two highest scores from the final total. All of us know that we always have at least two bad holes for each round and after this game we were allowed to eliminate those scores. What a great idea! The winners were First flight: 1st place Elsa Berbig, 2nd place Noreen Salo; second flight: 1st place Lynn Houghton, 2nd place Carol Clark; third flight: 1st place Ilene Simnowitz, 2nd place Arlene Klann. Closest to the Pin on the 3rd Hole was Carol Clark. The weather threatened during the entire round but we finished before any heavy rain occurred. The course is in great shape but the rough is deadly and needs to be avoided. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The rain we had last week improved the fairways and greens, and 45 players turned out for the July 29 game. As usual, the scoring was three best net. The winners with a score of 195 were Emmet Dowling, Bill Ellin, Bill Start and Duke Slayton. Second with a score of 197 were Dale Wurzburger, Larry Collins, Paul Colatruglio and Dick Spano. Rounding out the top three with a 198 were Bruce Stover, Steve Kollar, Bill Staiger and Pat Schiavo. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Chuck Engel, Art Pruneau, and Mark Best (2).

Rainbows End will host the first of three night golf events, said Don Delany, owner of the nine-hole municipal course. The inaugural event tees off Saturday, Aug. 13, with dates scheduled for Sept. 10 and Oct. 8. Cost for the scramble event is $140 per team, but includes a barbecue dinner and the necessary supplies for night golf. All three events will coincide with a full moon. The field for the scramble is being capped at 14 teams, Delany said. Coming up with the idea isnt his, though. Some of the regular players had played in events like this before and wanted us to do it, Delany explained. So after much prodding by his regulars, Delany decided to take the leap. Hes already got the night golf equipment in stock. Now, its a matter of filling the field for the inaugural event. He said hes filling team spots, so if you want to play, get a team together. For now, this is a test run, but if it catches on it could become a regular event when the weather allows. While Williston used to host such events, Delaney is hopeful it will become a popular event because no one else in the immediate area offers night golf. Were really hoping it attracts a different crowd, he said. Maybe couples will come out and make this a date night. It doesnt matter how you play, this is going to be something different. If it catches on as we hope, its certainly something will consider doing on a regular basis, maybe March through November. The event Saturday, Aug. 13, will kick off at 8 p.m. with the barbecue dinner, followed by a 9 oclock tee time. The event, because it is a scramble, will have a shotgun start.

This summer has been no exception. From books to blood to baked beans, our residents have stepped up to help those in need. Many thanks to them, as well as to those who have organized these drives. Operation: Stuff the Bus is now under way. This years Stuff the Bus school supply drive, organized in the community by resident Bob Majewski representing MOAA (Military Officers Association of America), is in full swing at the Lifestyle Center. Participating in Operation: Stuff the Bus gives you the opportunity to make a true difference in the education of a homeless or needy child. Some children might go without much-needed school suppliesor teachers would feel even more of a financial burden to buy the suppliesif not for Stuff the Bus. Items needed are new school supplies, such as pocket folders, notebooks and 3ring binders, as well as tennis shoes, books and games, and personal hygiene items. And remember, the 2011 Sales Tax Holiday runs Aug. 12 through Aug. 14, so no sales tax is collected on certain school supplies and clothing during that period. Your donation can be placed in the wicker basket in the Lifestyle Center. Of course, financial contributions are always welcome. Cash or checks made payable to Operation: Stuff the Bus with the memo Homeless Children Program may be given to Bob who will forward them to the organization. The bimonthly Blood Drive was held on Wednesday, July 20, and our residents again answered the call to help stock the blood bank at Floridas Blood Centers. FBC is the only blood bank serving Marion County hospitals, and it could not meet the needs Communitys residents always come through to help M ARION LANDING D B Diane Bress PHOTO BY LINA VALLEJOMarion Landings Aquasize Class led by Dotty Bouchet and Lina Vallejo. PLEASESEELANDING PAGE23 It looks like the heat is on. Guess we should enjoy it and think of the cold, snowy winters up North. Just remember to do as much as you can early in the morning. Even the swimming pool feels heated. The feature this week The feature this week is a retired school teacher from Iowa and her name is Fern Eberly. Fern was born Fern Willmott on a farm near Oto, Iowa. She was the youngest of seven children, with three brothers and three sisters. She went to a rural elementary school and said she walked 1 miles to and from school in all kinds of weather. Her folks lived on that farm for 42 years. She graduated from Oto High School in 1938 and stayed on the farm for another year to help her parents. She later attended Wayne State Teachers College in Wayne, Nebraska, and starting teaching in the fall of 1940. She tells the story of riding her white pony up to school and back home in bad weather. Fern spent five years teaching in rural schools and later taught junior high school students in Iowa for seven more years. While attending summer school in 1945 at Wayne State in Nebraska she met Rhea Eberly at a weekly dance. They didnt meet again until 1951 at the University of Colorado. Rhea was working on his Masters degree. They married in June of 1952. Fern moved to Emerson, Neb., where her husband was teaching at a high school. She took a job at a rural power district. They had one daughter, Trudy. They also had a French foreign student stay with them for one year. Trudy later married and moved to Kansas City and had two sons, Kevin and Kyle. Fern says she always liked to experience new things. Some of her jobs were working at a coin laundry, detasseling and sorting corn, being an elevator operator, waitress, baby sitter, selling Avon products and last but not least being a substitute teacher. Fern and Rhea moved to Spruce Creek North in 1988. They enjoyed square dancing for six years and riding their bicycles for many years. Rhea passed away in 2008. Ferns many positions held in SCN were accompanying the chorus for 13 years, she and her hubby set sprinklers for new lawns, she was a waitress and treasurer for the pancake breakfast. She calls on new SCN residents, is in charge of distribution of the SCN phone books, member of Human Touch, leader of Saturday water exercise, secretary of the social committee, plus chairperson of the Labor Day potluck. She is a long time member of the Marion Oaks Presbyterian Church. Her hobbies are playing the organ, sewing, crewel work, cooking, baking, watching sports, exercising, playing 500 and riding her bike (before she got too old). Her words, not mine. The lady from Iowa truly has had a full life and has been a wonderful volunteer for SCN. She also has been blessed with very good health. We all thank her and wish her a wonderful birthday in December, her 90th! Thanks to Fern for having so much written down to make my job a little easier. Free Dance Expo The free dance exposition was held on July 17 and they had a great turnout of approximately 80 people attending. Cindy Hutchins, president of the social committee was very pleased. The next event for SCN will be a Potluck party on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5. A sign-up sheet will be at the clubhouse. Fern Eberly is the organizer for this event. Then on Sept. 17, there will be a Hawaiian Luau It will be a buffet and there will be Hawaiian dancers. More information on both of these events will be reported later plus posters and sign-up sheets will be on the SCN bulletin board. I never deliberately leave out volunteers names so I want to thank Colin Holloway for helping on the SCN Memorial Day picnic. What would we do without volunteers? Sorry about that Colin. Crape Myrtles I have always said that crape myrtle bushes and trees are the only thing that can survive the hot summers and sometimes cold spells of winter. So hubby and I finally bought one and it was loaded with blooms five weeks after we planted it! It replaces our lemon tree that got zapped last winter. This crape myrtle is the Miami variety. We know our crape myrtle will survive and they are the closest thing to a lilac bush. Nice seeing you John! It was sure great to bump into John G. of Oak Run at Publix. One nice guy! Various Clubs I guess the heat is responsible for so many SCN clubs closing for the summer. SCN residents look forward to the return of bocce, shuffleboard, horseshoe pitching and several other clubs in the fall. Wrinkles? Ladies, have you ever watched the commercials about getting rid of wrinkles? The models are around 19 years old and dont even know what a wrinkle is! Rudys Article A few weeks ago I read an article written by Rudy Schasel of Oak Run. It was about the USA going to the aid of foreign countries when the USA needs desperate help at home with all the destruction from the floods and tornados. Great article Rudy! A truly wonderful lady It was very sad to hear about the passing of Pauline Moore who worked for the Citizen newspaper. She will be missed by all who knew her. I will be back on Sept. 2. See you then! Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her hubby Jim. She can be reached via e-mail at JnLiber@aol.com or messages dropped at the SCN clubhouse in the mail slots.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com R emember Earmarks? Thats a harmless sounding name for a sophisticated form of political corruption. Earmarks are directions from members of Congress telling agencies to spend funds on pet projects, organizations, and companies or to provide exemptions from taxes and fees. Campaign contributors and supporters are frequent beneficiaries of earmarked spending. Responding to press and public pressure during the last election, incoming House Republicans pledged a moratorium on earmarks. It turned out the moratorium had only one ear. The House cut five billion worth of goodies out of one funding bill and left five billion of earmarks in another. Gradual withdrawal from an addiction is less painful than having to kick the habit all at once. There was also an untouched basket of goodies left over in the 2010 budget, unspent earmarks hidden away in defense, transportation, and Corps of Engineers appropriations. One such project was a refuge for loons which stop at a lake in Nevada for a few days during their migrations every spring and fall. Why would loons need a refuge when they already know where theyre going and how to get there? In a time of fiscal crisis, many voters see earmarks as just another example of political deviousness. Over time, old fashioned bringing home the pork morphed into sending champagne and caviar to political supporters. Some of the hocus-pocus about earmarks is in the definition. Congress defines spending as an earmark if the project is a late add-on to an appropriations bill at the request of a lawmaker. They say preferential projects already tucked away in original bills shouldnt count as earmarks, no matter how ridiculous or devious they may be. An absence of earmarks can be negative. When Congress gave President Obama $800 billion of stimulus money and $350 billion of troubled asset money (TARP) with no spending directions, the president was free to create his own earmarks, spending where the money would return the most political benefit. For years Congress people said their earmarks were money that would have been spent anyway. They were just directing funds to the places where they needed to be spent, so the funds wouldnt get lost in the federal bureaucracy. All spending should be publicly debated in committee hearings with no add-ons allowed after bills are passed. Earmarking everything could provide Congress with better control over how funds are spent by the White House and federal bureaucracies. Unfortunately, that kind of transparency isnt popular with politicians, who are consumed with getting re-elected. Conversely voters are tired of congressional shenanigans. In a time of debt and deficit crises, there has to be some way to prevent another billion dollar earmark to reintroduce salmon to a river which went dry years ago. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 N obodys talking officially, but store employees are telling people that they are losing their jobs. The place is Kmart at Shady Oaks, at the corner of Southwest 27th Avenue and State Road 200 (College Road). Signs have popped up saying the store is going out of business, with signs on the pillars outside the facility saying Store closing sale. The people are saying its because of a rent increase, but we couldnt get anyone to confirm that. Kmarts corporate has always been uncooperative, and theyre sure not going to provide any information about a store failure. This store, in all honesty, always seemed to be the stepchild of the three stores in Marion County. The one on Silver Springs Boulevard is spacious with wide aisles, and the only time I was ever in the one in Belleview I was impressed. This store never was impressive. I was surprised it survived the last list of cutbacks that Kmart put out. Ironically, the decision to shut down this Kmart came about the same time that Walmart on State Road 200 was holding a grand reopening, to promote its lighting and spacious aisles and friendly greeters. And theres also another Walmart, just blocks south of this Kmart at the corner of Southwest 19th Avenue Road (Easy Street) and 27th Avenue (Shady Road). Over the past few years, the shopping center that houses Kmart has added a couple of other anchor stores, most notably Best Buy and Staples. But losing that big department store is never good for the future of a center. For some of us who have had long-time ties with Kmart, and who wear clothes from that store, this isnt a big blow because there are other stores. It could, however, be a sign of things to come, and thats not good. Efforts to get a comment from Kmart headquarters were unsuccessful. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, stuck to his guns this week and voted against the compromise bill to settle, at least for now, the debt ceiling battle in Congress. On his website, Stearns said he backed the plan put forth by Speaker of the House John Boehner. The problem is that the Boehner proposal was never going to pass. It is surprising that, with all of his experience, Stearns failed to recognize this while embracing the art of compromise to avoid a financial crisis in America. On his website, Stearns said, The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff identified our deficit crisis as Americas greatest threat, and this measure does not go far enough in holding down the growth in our national debt. Without significant spending cuts and reforms to essential programs, we are facing fiscal insolvency and the collapse of essential programs such as Social Security and Medicare. The final measure cuts less spending in the first year than the Boehner plan; the Boehner plan cut $22 billion compared with as little as $6 billion in this measure. I supported the Boehner plan to move us forward in reaching the $4 trillion in savings needed to avoid a ratings downgrade. This bill is $1.6 trillion short of what is needed to prevent a downgrade. This measure also makes it easier for the President to increase the debt limit in the future. In addition, the language for a balanced budget amendment is less precise and only requires a vote in the House and Senate instead of its actual passage by both that would result in it being sent to the states for ratification. Another concern was that this final plan sets discretionary spending for fiscal year 2012 at $24 billion higher than in the Ryan Budget Resolution, which I supported. There are times when people on both sides of the aisle have to give a little to get things done properly in the House. Its too bad that Stearns didnt recognize that when he voted against this bill. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Stearns sticks to his message Things going dark at SW Kmart Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Congressional concerns over fish and wildlife Some more thoughts regarding tax reformUpper and middle class taxpayers can no longer bear the entire tax burden. So what is left? The poor! Twenty-five years ago, only 19 percent of Americans paid no income taxes and now it is up to 47 percent. Do we ask ourselves why? Is it really because we are giving preference to the poor or is it that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer? A so-called fair tax or flat tax on the poor? Would that make them richer or poorer? Would this make the rich richer? Unfortunately there are, true, no fault of their own, people in our country who are poor and to ask them to pay up more money so the rich could get richer is ridiculous. We need to help the poor, and not to make it more difficult for them. May God bless us all, especially the poor. J. Paul Bronsard OTOW The big, bad Tea PartiesIt is interesting that the writer of Against The Tea Party believes we are the worst thing to happen to American politics. I will agree that we are probably the worst thing to happen to liberal, free spending, big government politics we have had in years. Lets look at why we are so bad! We have the nerve to believe that spending must come under control for we cannot continue raising our debt that is already increasing at $48 billion a day. We dont believe in passing down this huge deficit to our children since we believe in fiscal responsibility. We also believe in our Constitution, state rights, our national and state sovereignty, individual responsibility, limited government, our capitalistic system, our republic form of government, our right to bear arms, that we are a Christian nation, and free speech. We also believe that America is Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED the greatest nation in the world and want to keep it that way. We are respectful and patriotic and it shows in every rally we have held throughout the country. I cant help but question how much of the above gives him or any American so many problems? Liberals dont like our being conservative, but that is what we are, not belonging to any political party. We support conservative candidates and have been very disappointed in both parties. We also understand Economics 101, you cant spend your way into prosperity. One question I have is just how big our deficit must become before the liberals say no more? Maybe 20 trillion? Possibly 30 trillion? We are reaching the point of being a debtor nation, having our money taking a dramatic plunge in value, is this too difficult to understand? The simple truth is that without correction, we will go bankrupt and there truly will be no money. Cut the spending now, a whole lot more than either party is suggesting!

Later, catches offered something to barter or sell. Now, most people fish recreationally. Regardless of the purpose behind fishing, big catches stroke the angler's ego. Today, recreational fishing has an annual $7.5 billion economic impact in Florida. Habitat conservation and regulations help sustain these fisheries, but with greater demand it is increasingly important to protect and recycle the largest trophy fish by also promoting voluntary catch-andrelease. Florida's "Big Catch" angler recognition program helps stroke the ego of successful anglers by allowing them to show off their prowess. The Big Catch program provides a framable, full-color certificate and window sticker for anglers who catch any of 33 species of listed freshwater fishes that exceed a minimum length or weight. If people catch five qualifying fish of the same species, they are recognized as a Specialist. If they report five qualifying fish of different species, they become a Master Angler, and if they take and report qualifying fish representing 10 different species, they are an Elite Angler. Young people can enter fish that are approximately 25 percent smaller than adult qualifying sizes. Big Catch also encourages anglers to fish for a variety of species and to travel to locate them, while promoting appropriate catch and release. A new set of "TrophyCatch" marks and awards are in the works for trophy bass anglers. The TrophyCatch angler recognition program will be the hallmark of the long-term Florida Black Bass Management Plan, which the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved in June. The FWC intends to ensure that Florida is the undisputed bass fishing capital of the world. TrophyCatch will be a full-fledged initiative to document largemouth bass caught, and preferably released, throughout Florida that are heavier than 8 pounds. Incremental rewards and recognition will be provided to anglers reporting bass in the 8-10, 1012, 12-13 and greater than 13-pound categories. The anticipated rollout for TrophyCatch is October 2012. "This program, driven by private dollars, can substantially enhance Florida bass fishing by addressing ecological issues and encouraging recycling of trophy bass, but it will also have a great social and economic impact," said Tom Champeau, director of the FWC's Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. Biologists are developing specific handling guidelines to ensure anglers do the best possible job of effectively releasing these fish while providing the FWC with valuable research and marketing information. FWC representatives will certify bass over 13 pounds caught from October through April (beginning in 2012) for entry into the Florida Trophy Bass Hall of Fame. Sponsors, corporate partners and the media will provide incentives to encourage reporting and releasing all such catches. Fisheries biologists will use TrophyCatch reports to identify Florida's best bass fisheries to determine which management practices (e.g., habitat and aquatic plant management, regulations, stocking) are most effective in creating trophy fisheries. VISIT FLORIDA and the FWC will work with the media to use this information to establish Florida as a prime trophy bass fishing destination. Incorporating social media and online mapping resources will make this information widely available to the public and create a buzz as anglers report new trophies and post photos. Such recognition will increase both resident and nonresident angler participation and enjoyment, tackle and license sales, tourism and help create the next generation that cares about our natural resources and outdoor recreational heritage. In Florida, more recreational fishing days are spent on fresh water (24.4 million days by 1.4 million anglers) than on salt water. Largemouth bass are the most sought-after species not only in Florida but also in the nation. Bass anglers alone generate $1.25 billion for our economy, supporting thousands of jobs. Consequently, promoting and safeguarding Florida's trophy bass fisheries is good for everyone. Big catches still stroke anglers egos Outdoors 0008W9A M-Fri. 9-5/Sat.

He further blamed the Tea Party for everything else thats wrong in America when he said, the Tea Party is the worst thing to happen to American politics in years, offering the debt ceiling debates in Washington as proof. Of course, the man has a right to express his own opinion, guaranteed to him by the Constitution, but this is the kind of irrational thinking that, sadly, has become commonplace among the uninformed and misinformed people who have been drinking the Marxistflavored Kool Aid served up to them by the radical Progressive Party in our country. Let it be clearly said that the Tea Party did not happen to American politics; it happened because of American politics, and our own political complacency over the years. The United States will not go into default if there is no rise in the debt ceiling, and the federal governments obligations will be met, contrary to White House announcements of imminent economic doom, designed to strike fear into the hearts of American citizens. The debt ceiling has been raised 10 times in the past 10 years. With a public debt of 14.4 trillion dollars, a deep recession, and 14 million unemployed workers, it is long past time for the government to stop telling hard-working middle-class Americans that there will be no tax increases for them but that raising taxes on the most affluent among us will be enough to alleviate the financial crisis in our country. This serves only to turn one citizen against another in a climate of insecurity, uncertainty, and a sense of disconnection among the people with what was once the bright promise of America. Last weeks contributor should also know that the Obama Administration has made no formal proposals at all in regard to the debt crisis, but has chosen merely to criticize the two plans that have passed in the House, only to be tabled in the Senate. The Ryan Bill was also rejected by the Progressives in the Senate. The Tea Party does not wish for the Obama Administration to fail; it has already failed by its own ideology and policies. And last weeks letter writer should also know that name-calling and using obscene terms such as tea baggers is worse than counter-productive far better for him to discuss specific issues with some degree of intelligence. Joseph Paterek Ocala Gated communities safe, Yea or Nay?There was an interesting article in the Citizen on July 29 regarding damage done to the indoor pool mens room at Oak Run. The writer would have you think it was a resident who was the perpetrator. I think not. It is assumed and my wife and I were assured, that Oak Run was a secure environment when we purchased our home 10 years ago. Nothing could be further from the truth. Ive read magazine and newspaper articles as well as watch TV documentaries regarding the fallacies of amenity/homeowner fees which cover security. Amenity fees are a fat cow for builders and Homeowners Association fees benefit the community. Now there are communities like Isleworth in the Orlando area which has walls all around the community. But, Oak Run does not. In fact there have been two home break-ins in the last year. Less than 100 yards across the road from the Orchid Club, is a poor excuse for a fence. The Crescent Oaks West neighborhood which backs on parts of other communities has only a flimsy, sagging barbed wire fence for over 1/2 mile around the Oak Run boundary. In fact the fence is less than 12 feet from some of the homes in that neighborhood. All a crook would have to do is easily climb through the fence and they are at a house. The fence across from the Orchid Club was climbed, and crawled through many times when someone sent an errant golf shot over the fence. This fence gives easy access to shops in the Walmart area. Just because you have unarmed retired old folks sitting in a gate house does not give a community security. I have asked on more than one occasion who do we call in case of a breakin and am told to call the Marion County Sheriffs department not the Oak Run Security people. Strangely enough we pay big bucks as Im sure other communities do in the name of security. Apparently the writer is speaking the developer rhetoric and not facts. Being a retired auditor, I always had to have backup and I do regarding the fences in our community. The sad part is when questioning management regarding security, were told guards at the gate are the security. Also, a person can know someone who lives here and tell the gatekeeper the residents name and be admitted. I know, as its happened to me, but of course they were people I knew but undesirables can get in as well. Finally, assumption, innuendo and outright lack of information are poor excuses for facts. Maybe the writer, since she is a board member, can influence management to put up a secure fence around Oak Run and then no vandalism. Bill Ford Oak Run LETTERS TO THE EDITOR J ohn Cleese, the tall actor and Minister of Silly Walks from Monty Python, has always given his permission for his musings to be borrowed. Bitter after being snubbed for membership in the "Axis of Evil", Libya, China and Syria today announced that they had formed the "Axis of Just as Evil", which they said would be more evil than that stupid Iran-IraqNorth Korea axis President Bush warned of in his State of the Union address. Axis of Evil members, however, immediately dismissed the new Axis as having, for starters, a really dumb name. "Right. They are just as evil . in their dreams!" declared North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. "Everybody knows we're the best evils . best at being evil ... we're the best." Diplomats from Syria denied they were jealous over being excluded, although they conceded they did ask if they could join the Axis of Evil. "They told us it was full," said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "An axis can't have more than three counties", explained the late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. "This is not my rule, it's tradition. In World War II you had Germany, Italy, and Japan in the evil Axis. So, you can only have three, and a secret handshake. Ours is wickedly cool." International reaction to Bush's Axis of Evil declaration was swift, as within minutes, France surrendered. Elsewhere, peer-conscious nations rushed to gain triumvirate status in what has become a game of geopolitical chairs. Cuba, Sudan and Serbia announced that they had formed the "Axis of Somewhat Evil", forcing Somalia Time for a laugh Wendy Binnie to join with Uganda and Myanmar in the "Axis of Occasionally Evil", while Bulgaria, Indonesia and Russia established the "Axis of Not So Much Evil Really as Just Generally Disagreeable". With the criteria suddenly expanded and all the desirable clubs filling up, Sierra Leone, El Salvador, and Rwanda applied to be called the "Axis of Countries That Aren't the Worst But Certainly Won't Be Asked to Host the Olympics". Canada, Mexico and Australia formed the "Axis of Nations That Are Actually Quite Nice But Secretly Have Some Nasty Thoughts About America", while Scotland, New Zealand and Spain established the "Axis of Countries That Want Sheep to Wear Lipstick". "That's not a threat, really, just something we like to do", said Scottish Executive First Minister Jack McConnell. While wondering if the other nations of the world weren't perhaps making fun of him, a cautious Bush granted approval for most axis, although he rejected the establishment of the "Axis of Countries Whose Names End in 'Guay", accusing one of its members of filing a false application. Officials from Paraguay, Uruguay, and Chadguay denied the charges. Israel, meanwhile, insisted it didn't want to join any Axis, but privately world leaders said that's only because no PLEASESEEWENDY PAGE10 0008O7T First Congregational United Church of Christ First Congregational United Church of Christ A Progressive Community of Faith in the Heart of Central Florida An Open and Affirming Church Adult Bible Study 12:00 Noon Worship 10:30 am College Road Baptist Church 5010 SW College Road, Ocala, FL (352) 237-5741 Rev.

T he Stuff the Bus Operation comes to Jasmine Square tomorrow with lots of activities for kids and adults. All proceeds will go to the charity. On the way to Jasmine, the bus driver made a stop at Pun Alley and related some stories that have been traveling around on the bus routes. Capitol offense A blonde visiting Washington wanted to see the Capitol building. Unfortunately, she couldnt find it, so she asked a police officer for directions, Excuse me, officer, how do I get to the Capitol building? The officer replied, Wait here at this bus stop for the number 54 bus. Itll take you right there. Much later the policeman returned and found the blonde still waiting at the same bus stop. The officer said, Excuse me, but to get to the Capitol building, I said to wait here for the number 54 bus. That was three hours ago. Why are you still waiting? The blonde replied, Dont worry, officer, it wont be long now. The 45th bus just went by! Mistaken identity A young lady schoolteacher boarded a bus, noticed a familiar face across the aisle, and nodded at him. He stared at her blankly, giving no sign of recognition. Flustered, she called out, Im sorry. I thought you were the father of one of my children. Naked? Is everyone in the bus? asked the driver before he closed the door. No, called a lady, wait until I get my clothes on. All the passengers in the bus turned towards the door to look at the woman. She got on with a bag full of laundry. Going nowhere The mob on an overcrowded bus pushed off a man trying to get on. Theres no room, they said. Its full up! But you must let me on! shouted the man. Why, whats so special about you? they asked. Im the driver, replied the man. Bus stops An obese lady was struggling to get on the bus, when the bus driver said, You should take yeast; it would help you to rise. Try it yourself, said the woman. It would make you better bred. Safety experts say school bus passengers should be belted. A wisecracking kid stepped on a bus one morning and called to the driver, How about it, Noah, is the Ark full? Come right in, replied the driver. We need one more monkey. A Catholic church brings their parishioners to services by bus; they call it mass transit. Teacher: Tommy, youre late again. Tommy: Sorry, sir. Its my bus; its always coming late. Teacher: Well, if its late again tomorrow, catch an earlier one. Evening news is where they begin with Good evening, and then proceed to tell you why it isnt. Bus passenger: Id like a ticket to New York, please. Ticket seller: By Buffalo? Bus passenger: Of course not, Im in the bus queue, arent I? Dont argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. Passenger: Will this bus take me to New York? Driver: Which part? Passenger: All of me, of course! Cold weather alert John, a new resident in Alaska, heard a radio advisory stating that anyone traveling in winter conditions should take a shovel, blankets or sleeping bag; extra clothing, including scarf, hat and gloves; 24 hour supply of food; 5 pounds of rock salt; flashlight with spare batteries; road flares and reflective triangles; tow rope, a fivegallon can of gas, first aid kit and jumper cables. He looked like a complete idiot the first time he got on the bus. Church rules A preacher whose congregation usually spurned seats in the front of the church was surprised to see one man, a stranger, in the first row. After the sermon, the pastor asked the man why he sat down in front. The man replied that, being a bus driver, he wanted to find out how the preacher got people to move to the rear. Wrong destination? A very drunken disheveled man got on a bus late one night, staggered up the aisle, and sat next to a woman. She looked the man up and down and said, Ive got news for you.

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Libya and Pakistan and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada. The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years. The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed Frances white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout loudly and excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides." The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose." Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels. The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy. Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to "She'll be alright, mate." Two more escalation levels remain: "Crikey! I think we'll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!" and "The barbie is canceled." So far no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level. One of his funniest pieces was the grand offer by the Queen to take back the American colonies for their own good, seeing as they were so messed up. Too long for this column never mind.

I once had an odd keel, but fortunately, I had the good sense to throw it back into the water from whence it came. I take pride in maintaining a certain sense of balance in my life. But, there are those times when all balance is thrown out the window. Just this past week when I was enjoying an unusually wonderful sense of balance in my life, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage changed my whole demeanor. We were watching the news on television. When I say we, I am not insinuating in any regard that I was paying any attention whatsoever to what was happening on the television screen. I usually have a book in hand I am perusing while I am allegedly watching TV. Out of nowhere, I heard her exclaim, They just wouldnt do that. I continued in my book and paid no attention to her. What in the world is wrong with those people? I heard her say. By now, my curiosity had gotten the best of me and I laid my book down and said, What has got you all riled up tonight? Didnt you hear what they just said? Im sorry; I was looking at my book. Well, she said in a very disgusted manner, the government is thinking about taxing junk food. Can you imagine anything more ludicrous than that? I always like to, at least try to think of the positive side of things. With the way our beloved politicians have been going these days, it is very hard to find the positive side. Although I am not in favor of taxes, I know that as a citizen I need to pay my fair share. I have no problem with that. Im not, however, in favor of tacking on some new taxes. Whats wrong with the old ones? Then my wife said something that turned my thinking all the way around.

That was a crazy thing to say. Of course, I knew what junk food was. I stay away from that food category and pride myself in eating healthy food every day. No junk food for me, thank you. I shrugged it off at the time and replied to my wife, Oh well, the government has to do whatever it has to do in times like these. You do know that Apple Fritters are considered junk food by our government? And when they start taxing junk food they will be taxing your Apple Fritters. They dont. They wouldnt. They better not! At this point, my even keel was experiencing some very turbulent tendencies. I try to be a good citizen but there comes a time when a person has to put his foot down. I had come to the point where as that old philosopher who said, Thats all I can stands, I cant stands no more! What I want to say to good old Mr. Uncle Sam is simply; do not touch my Apple Fritters. Some things in life are sacred and for somebody to fool with them will only rile the anger of those religious people devoted to Apple Fritter Veneration. Believe me; you do not want the Apple Fritter Gang to get riled. The Creed of these Apple Fritter followers is simply, an Apple Fritter a day keeps the blues away. Nothing cheers the day like starting it with a freshly baked Apple Fritter. Regardless of the problems I have to face during the day, if I start with an Apple Fritter the day seems to go much better. Now, Mr. Uncle Sam, let me explain some of the facts of life to you. First, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence and considered by some as part of one of the most well crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language. These three aspects are listed among the unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man. Everybody knows that the phrase the pursuit of happiness, is a reference to Apple Fritters. No more pure form of happiness exists then enjoying a freshly baked Apple Fritter. And another thing, why blame the lowly Apple Fritter on the debt problem? I have been associated with Apple Fritters most of my life and I have never known an Apple Fritter to spend money it does not have. I have given this a lot of thought. Apple Fritters are not responsible for the debt problem in our country but rather politicians are responsible. My thought is simply this. Instead of considering Apple Fritters as junk food, why not consider politicians as junk politicians and tax them. That would make much more sense. Out in the real world everybody operates along these lines; if you create a debt, you have an obligation to pay that debt and not shove it off on somebody else. The only ones who do this are all those Junk Politicians who have no sense of how much a dollar is really worth let alone where it comes from. I still stand by the words of Jesus. And he (Jesus) said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Mr. Uncle Sam, touch my Apple Fritter at your own peril. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 www.smcitizen.com It is a box like no other in history. Shrouded in mystical power, holiness and spirituality, it has captivated the minds of archeologists and lay people alike. While its exact whereabouts is unknown having been lost in antiquity, moderns are left with only reading about the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark of the Covenant, called aron habrit in Hebrew, was a box or coffer that contained the Ten Commandments and the budded rod of Aaron. (The staff miraculously budded as a sign of Aarons lineages claim as the priestly class.) Though Judaism frowns upon physical images of any sort, the Ark was an exemption to this rule as it was felt that the ancient Hebrews needed a physical sign of Gods presence in their midst after the incident with the Golden Calf when they had tried to make a god out of the statue while waiting for Moses to return to the camp while up on Mount Sinai. This physical presence, called the shechinah, took the form of a cloud that hovered over the Ark indicating to them when to travel as they set foot on route to the Promised Land. At night, the cloud became a pillar of fire. According to legend, as they traveled, the mystical power of the Ark cleared the way of scorpions, snakes and thorns by emitting bolts of flame that shot from underside of the Ark and was carried into battle as a symbolic sign to motivate the Israelites. Bezalel built the Ark as per Gods command. Its dimensions were two and a half cubits in length, by one and a half cubits in height by one and a half cubits in width, a cubic measuring about 18 inches. It was made of acacia wood and plated with pure gold inside and out. At the bottom of the box were four gold rings through which two poles of acacia wood were set allowing men of the tribe of Levi to carry the box on their shoulders. The top of the box had a covering of pure gold on which rested the figures of two cherubim, angels, facing each other with their wings touching. The space between the two angels was called the mercy seat and it was from there that the Lord appeared to the High Readers of the Lost Ark J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal Christs Church of Marion County Sunday, Aug. 7: Sunday School, 10 a.m. Worship Service, What the Bible Has to Say About Racism.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Priest in the form of a glowing cloud on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur. Because of its holiness and power, no one was allowed to gaze upon it or touch it and to do so meant death. It is believed by some, that the Ark was a conductor of static electricity, so powerful that it could emit a jolt of power serious enough to cause death. This, of course, led credence to its mystical power and has captivated our attention even today. After serving as a beacon for travel, the Arks final resting place was the first Temple built by King Solomon. It had served them well during their wanderings in the desert having been part of the famous march around the captured city of Jericho and as a conduit for Moses encounters with the Divine. Here the Ark was stored and used for ritual purposes until the Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E. After this act of destruction, the whereabouts of the Ark became part of history. There are some who believe that during the reign of King Manasseh, the Ark was smuggled out of the Temple by way of the Well of Souls and taken to Egypt, eventually ending up in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Axum, Ethiopia, claims to have the Ark based on a story that Menelik I, son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, brought the Ark to Ethiopia. Once paraded around before the town once a year, it is now kept in a special guarded building where only the head priest of the church is allowed to view it. A recent segment on the National Geographic Channel had the Templar Knights bringing the relic to Ethiopia but many scholars debate this. Other theories purport that the Ark is buried beneath the earth under the Moslem holy place, The Dome of the Rock, which some archeologists believe, is the site of the Temple Mount. This is the view of archeologist Leen Ritmeyer whose research has led him to conclude that he has found the spot on the Mount where the Holy of Holies was located. Unfortunately, this area cannot be fully excavated due to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities about this holy spot. Today in the modern synagogue, the last vestiges of the Ark of the Covenant can be seen in the special cabinet that houses the holy Torahs. Often decorated with the Tables of the Law, it is a direct reminder of the fabled past of the Ark. Before the Torahs are taken out of the cabinet, the congregation rises in respect and a verse about the original Ark and its movements before the people (Num. 10:35) is chanted. A modern ark faces in the direction of Jerusalem where the Holy Temple once stood. In pop culture, the Ark has been the subject of books and the iconic Indiana Jones 1981 adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark. In the movie, the intrepid hero, Indiana Jones, rescues the Ark from the nefarious Nazis who want to harness the Arks power for evil. The box ends up in a storehouse somewhere lost in U.S. government bureaucracy. Wherever the whereabouts of the Ark, one thing is certain. In time it will be revealed, perhaps in a messianic age of peace. Until then, I will just have to hum the theme from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

These recipes from the National Chicken Council bring flamekissed flavor to your plate in the form of sweet and spicy wings, summer-fresh kabobs, and a gorgeous entre salad.Quick Grilling Tips When cooking chicken outdoors, keep it refrigerated until ready to cook. Do not place cooked chicken on same plate used to transport raw chicken to grill. Keep food from sticking to the grate by rubbing with vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray. Keep a spray bottle filled with water close by so that you can spray down flare-ups, which can blacken your food.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Priest in the form of a glowing cloud on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur. Because of its holiness and power, no one was allowed to gaze upon it or touch it and to do so meant death. It is believed by some, that the Ark was a conductor of static electricity, so powerful that it could emit a jolt of power serious enough to cause death. This, of course, led credence to its mystical power and has captivated our attention even today. After serving as a beacon for travel, the Arks final resting place was the first Temple built by King Solomon. It had served them well during their wanderings in the desert having been part of the famous march around the captured city of Jericho and as a conduit for Moses encounters with the Divine. Here the Ark was stored and used for ritual purposes until the Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E. After this act of destruction, the whereabouts of the Ark became part of history. There are some who believe that during the reign of King Manasseh, the Ark was smuggled out of the Temple by way of the Well of Souls and taken to Egypt, eventually ending up in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Axum, Ethiopia, claims to have the Ark based on a story that Menelik I, son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, brought the Ark to Ethiopia. Once paraded around before the town once a year, it is now kept in a special guarded building where only the head priest of the church is allowed to view it. A recent segment on the National Geographic Channel had the Templar Knights bringing the relic to Ethiopia but many scholars debate this. Other theories purport that the Ark is buried beneath the earth under the Moslem holy place, The Dome of the Rock, which some archeologists believe, is the site of the Temple Mount. This is the view of archeologist Leen Ritmeyer whose research has led him to conclude that he has found the spot on the Mount where the Holy of Holies was located. Unfortunately, this area cannot be fully excavated due to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities about this holy spot. Today in the modern synagogue, the last vestiges of the Ark of the Covenant can be seen in the special cabinet that houses the holy Torahs. Often decorated with the Tables of the Law, it is a direct reminder of the fabled past of the Ark. Before the Torahs are taken out of the cabinet, the congregation rises in respect and a verse about the original Ark and its movements before the people (Num. 10:35) is chanted. A modern ark faces in the direction of Jerusalem where the Holy Temple once stood. In pop culture, the Ark has been the subject of books and the iconic Indiana Jones 1981 adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark. In the movie, the intrepid hero, Indiana Jones, rescues the Ark from the nefarious Nazis who want to harness the Arks power for evil. The box ends up in a storehouse somewhere lost in U.S. government bureaucracy. Wherever the whereabouts of the Ark, one thing is certain. In time it will be revealed, perhaps in a messianic age of peace. Until then, I will just have to hum the theme from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 www.smcitizen.com It is a box like no other in history. Shrouded in mystical power, holiness and spirituality, it has captivated the minds of archeologists and lay people alike. While its exact whereabouts is unknown having been lost in antiquity, moderns are left with only reading about the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark of the Covenant, called aron habrit in Hebrew, was a box or coffer that contained the Ten Commandments and the budded rod of Aaron. (The staff miraculously budded as a sign of Aarons lineages claim as the priestly class.) Though Judaism frowns upon physical images of any sort, the Ark was an exemption to this rule as it was felt that the ancient Hebrews needed a physical sign of Gods presence in their midst after the incident with the Golden Calf when they had tried to make a god out of the statue while waiting for Moses to return to the camp while up on Mount Sinai. This physical presence, called the shechinah, took the form of a cloud that hovered over the Ark indicating to them when to travel as they set foot on route to the Promised Land. At night, the cloud became a pillar of fire. According to legend, as they traveled, the mystical power of the Ark cleared the way of scorpions, snakes and thorns by emitting bolts of flame that shot from underside of the Ark and was carried into battle as a symbolic sign to motivate the Israelites. Bezalel built the Ark as per Gods command. Its dimensions were two and a half cubits in length, by one and a half cubits in height by one and a half cubits in width, a cubic measuring about 18 inches. It was made of acacia wood and plated with pure gold inside and out. At the bottom of the box were four gold rings through which two poles of acacia wood were set allowing men of the tribe of Levi to carry the box on their shoulders. The top of the box had a covering of pure gold on which rested the figures of two cherubim, angels, facing each other with their wings touching. The space between the two angels was called the mercy seat and it was from there that the Lord appeared to the High Readers of the Lost Ark J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal Christs Church of Marion County Sunday, Aug. 7: Sunday School, 10 a.m. Worship Service, What the Bible Has to Say About Racism.

That was a crazy thing to say. Of course, I knew what junk food was. I stay away from that food category and pride myself in eating healthy food every day. No junk food for me, thank you. I shrugged it off at the time and replied to my wife, Oh well, the government has to do whatever it has to do in times like these. You do know that Apple Fritters are considered junk food by our government? And when they start taxing junk food they will be taxing your Apple Fritters. They dont. They wouldnt. They better not! At this point, my even keel was experiencing some very turbulent tendencies. I try to be a good citizen but there comes a time when a person has to put his foot down. I had come to the point where as that old philosopher who said, Thats all I can stands, I cant stands no more! What I want to say to good old Mr. Uncle Sam is simply; do not touch my Apple Fritters. Some things in life are sacred and for somebody to fool with them will only rile the anger of those religious people devoted to Apple Fritter Veneration. Believe me; you do not want the Apple Fritter Gang to get riled. The Creed of these Apple Fritter followers is simply, an Apple Fritter a day keeps the blues away. Nothing cheers the day like starting it with a freshly baked Apple Fritter. Regardless of the problems I have to face during the day, if I start with an Apple Fritter the day seems to go much better. Now, Mr. Uncle Sam, let me explain some of the facts of life to you. First, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence and considered by some as part of one of the most well crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language. These three aspects are listed among the unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man. Everybody knows that the phrase the pursuit of happiness, is a reference to Apple Fritters. No more pure form of happiness exists then enjoying a freshly baked Apple Fritter. And another thing, why blame the lowly Apple Fritter on the debt problem? I have been associated with Apple Fritters most of my life and I have never known an Apple Fritter to spend money it does not have. I have given this a lot of thought. Apple Fritters are not responsible for the debt problem in our country but rather politicians are responsible. My thought is simply this. Instead of considering Apple Fritters as junk food, why not consider politicians as junk politicians and tax them. That would make much more sense. Out in the real world everybody operates along these lines; if you create a debt, you have an obligation to pay that debt and not shove it off on somebody else. The only ones who do this are all those Junk Politicians who have no sense of how much a dollar is really worth let alone where it comes from. I still stand by the words of Jesus. And he (Jesus) said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Mr. Uncle Sam, touch my Apple Fritter at your own peril. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

T he Stuff the Bus Operation comes to Jasmine Square tomorrow with lots of activities for kids and adults. All proceeds will go to the charity. On the way to Jasmine, the bus driver made a stop at Pun Alley and related some stories that have been traveling around on the bus routes. Capitol offense A blonde visiting Washington wanted to see the Capitol building. Unfortunately, she couldnt find it, so she asked a police officer for directions, Excuse me, officer, how do I get to the Capitol building? The officer replied, Wait here at this bus stop for the number 54 bus. Itll take you right there. Much later the policeman returned and found the blonde still waiting at the same bus stop. The officer said, Excuse me, but to get to the Capitol building, I said to wait here for the number 54 bus. That was three hours ago. Why are you still waiting? The blonde replied, Dont worry, officer, it wont be long now. The 45th bus just went by! Mistaken identity A young lady schoolteacher boarded a bus, noticed a familiar face across the aisle, and nodded at him. He stared at her blankly, giving no sign of recognition. Flustered, she called out, Im sorry. I thought you were the father of one of my children. Naked? Is everyone in the bus? asked the driver before he closed the door. No, called a lady, wait until I get my clothes on. All the passengers in the bus turned towards the door to look at the woman. She got on with a bag full of laundry. Going nowhere The mob on an overcrowded bus pushed off a man trying to get on. Theres no room, they said. Its full up! But you must let me on! shouted the man. Why, whats so special about you? they asked. Im the driver, replied the man. Bus stops An obese lady was struggling to get on the bus, when the bus driver said, You should take yeast; it would help you to rise. Try it yourself, said the woman. It would make you better bred. Safety experts say school bus passengers should be belted. A wisecracking kid stepped on a bus one morning and called to the driver, How about it, Noah, is the Ark full? Come right in, replied the driver. We need one more monkey. A Catholic church brings their parishioners to services by bus; they call it mass transit. Teacher: Tommy, youre late again. Tommy: Sorry, sir. Its my bus; its always coming late. Teacher: Well, if its late again tomorrow, catch an earlier one. Evening news is where they begin with Good evening, and then proceed to tell you why it isnt. Bus passenger: Id like a ticket to New York, please. Ticket seller: By Buffalo? Bus passenger: Of course not, Im in the bus queue, arent I? Dont argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. Passenger: Will this bus take me to New York? Driver: Which part? Passenger: All of me, of course! Cold weather alert John, a new resident in Alaska, heard a radio advisory stating that anyone traveling in winter conditions should take a shovel, blankets or sleeping bag; extra clothing, including scarf, hat and gloves; 24 hour supply of food; 5 pounds of rock salt; flashlight with spare batteries; road flares and reflective triangles; tow rope, a fivegallon can of gas, first aid kit and jumper cables. He looked like a complete idiot the first time he got on the bus. Church rules A preacher whose congregation usually spurned seats in the front of the church was surprised to see one man, a stranger, in the first row. After the sermon, the pastor asked the man why he sat down in front. The man replied that, being a bus driver, he wanted to find out how the preacher got people to move to the rear. Wrong destination? A very drunken disheveled man got on a bus late one night, staggered up the aisle, and sat next to a woman. She looked the man up and down and said, Ive got news for you. Youre going straight to hell! The man staggered out of his seat and shouted, Good heavens, Im on the wrong bus! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. one asked them. Now to threat alerts in 2011. The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Libya and Pakistan and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada. The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years. The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed Frances white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout loudly and excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides." The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose." Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels. The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy. Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to "She'll be alright, mate." Two more escalation levels remain: "Crikey! I think we'll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!" and "The barbie is canceled." So far no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level. One of his funniest pieces was the grand offer by the Queen to take back the American colonies for their own good, seeing as they were so messed up. Too long for this column never mind. "Take from the philosopher the pleasure of being heard and his desire for knowledge ceases. ... John Cleese." As I was saying.

I once had an odd keel, but fortunately, I had the good sense to throw it back into the water from whence it came. I take pride in maintaining a certain sense of balance in my life. But, there are those times when all balance is thrown out the window. Just this past week when I was enjoying an unusually wonderful sense of balance in my life, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage changed my whole demeanor. We were watching the news on television. When I say we, I am not insinuating in any regard that I was paying any attention whatsoever to what was happening on the television screen. I usually have a book in hand I am perusing while I am allegedly watching TV. Out of nowhere, I heard her exclaim, They just wouldnt do that. I continued in my book and paid no attention to her. What in the world is wrong with those people? I heard her say. By now, my curiosity had gotten the best of me and I laid my book down and said, What has got you all riled up tonight? Didnt you hear what they just said? Im sorry; I was looking at my book. Well, she said in a very disgusted manner, the government is thinking about taxing junk food. Can you imagine anything more ludicrous than that? I always like to, at least try to think of the positive side of things. With the way our beloved politicians have been going these days, it is very hard to find the positive side. Although I am not in favor of taxes, I know that as a citizen I need to pay my fair share. I have no problem with that. Im not, however, in favor of tacking on some new taxes. Whats wrong with the old ones? Then my wife said something that turned my thinking all the way around.

He further blamed the Tea Party for everything else thats wrong in America when he said, the Tea Party is the worst thing to happen to American politics in years, offering the debt ceiling debates in Washington as proof. Of course, the man has a right to express his own opinion, guaranteed to him by the Constitution, but this is the kind of irrational thinking that, sadly, has become commonplace among the uninformed and misinformed people who have been drinking the Marxistflavored Kool Aid served up to them by the radical Progressive Party in our country. Let it be clearly said that the Tea Party did not happen to American politics; it happened because of American politics, and our own political complacency over the years. The United States will not go into default if there is no rise in the debt ceiling, and the federal governments obligations will be met, contrary to White House announcements of imminent economic doom, designed to strike fear into the hearts of American citizens. The debt ceiling has been raised 10 times in the past 10 years. With a public debt of 14.4 trillion dollars, a deep recession, and 14 million unemployed workers, it is long past time for the government to stop telling hard-working middle-class Americans that there will be no tax increases for them but that raising taxes on the most affluent among us will be enough to alleviate the financial crisis in our country. This serves only to turn one citizen against another in a climate of insecurity, uncertainty, and a sense of disconnection among the people with what was once the bright promise of America. Last weeks contributor should also know that the Obama Administration has made no formal proposals at all in regard to the debt crisis, but has chosen merely to criticize the two plans that have passed in the House, only to be tabled in the Senate. The Ryan Bill was also rejected by the Progressives in the Senate. The Tea Party does not wish for the Obama Administration to fail; it has already failed by its own ideology and policies. And last weeks letter writer should also know that name-calling and using obscene terms such as tea baggers is worse than counter-productive far better for him to discuss specific issues with some degree of intelligence. Joseph Paterek Ocala Gated communities safe, Yea or Nay?There was an interesting article in the Citizen on July 29 regarding damage done to the indoor pool mens room at Oak Run. The writer would have you think it was a resident who was the perpetrator. I think not. It is assumed and my wife and I were assured, that Oak Run was a secure environment when we purchased our home 10 years ago. Nothing could be further from the truth. Ive read magazine and newspaper articles as well as watch TV documentaries regarding the fallacies of amenity/homeowner fees which cover security. Amenity fees are a fat cow for builders and Homeowners Association fees benefit the community. Now there are communities like Isleworth in the Orlando area which has walls all around the community. But, Oak Run does not. In fact there have been two home break-ins in the last year. Less than 100 yards across the road from the Orchid Club, is a poor excuse for a fence. The Crescent Oaks West neighborhood which backs on parts of other communities has only a flimsy, sagging barbed wire fence for over 1/2 mile around the Oak Run boundary. In fact the fence is less than 12 feet from some of the homes in that neighborhood. All a crook would have to do is easily climb through the fence and they are at a house. The fence across from the Orchid Club was climbed, and crawled through many times when someone sent an errant golf shot over the fence. This fence gives easy access to shops in the Walmart area. Just because you have unarmed retired old folks sitting in a gate house does not give a community security. I have asked on more than one occasion who do we call in case of a breakin and am told to call the Marion County Sheriffs department not the Oak Run Security people. Strangely enough we pay big bucks as Im sure other communities do in the name of security. Apparently the writer is speaking the developer rhetoric and not facts. Being a retired auditor, I always had to have backup and I do regarding the fences in our community. The sad part is when questioning management regarding security, were told guards at the gate are the security. Also, a person can know someone who lives here and tell the gatekeeper the residents name and be admitted. I know, as its happened to me, but of course they were people I knew but undesirables can get in as well. Finally, assumption, innuendo and outright lack of information are poor excuses for facts. Maybe the writer, since she is a board member, can influence management to put up a secure fence around Oak Run and then no vandalism. Bill Ford Oak Run LETTERS TO THE EDITOR J ohn Cleese, the tall actor and Minister of Silly Walks from Monty Python, has always given his permission for his musings to be borrowed. Bitter after being snubbed for membership in the "Axis of Evil", Libya, China and Syria today announced that they had formed the "Axis of Just as Evil", which they said would be more evil than that stupid Iran-IraqNorth Korea axis President Bush warned of in his State of the Union address. Axis of Evil members, however, immediately dismissed the new Axis as having, for starters, a really dumb name. "Right. They are just as evil . in their dreams!" declared North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. "Everybody knows we're the best evils . best at being evil ... we're the best." Diplomats from Syria denied they were jealous over being excluded, although they conceded they did ask if they could join the Axis of Evil. "They told us it was full," said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "An axis can't have more than three counties", explained the late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. "This is not my rule, it's tradition. In World War II you had Germany, Italy, and Japan in the evil Axis. So, you can only have three, and a secret handshake. Ours is wickedly cool." International reaction to Bush's Axis of Evil declaration was swift, as within minutes, France surrendered. Elsewhere, peer-conscious nations rushed to gain triumvirate status in what has become a game of geopolitical chairs. Cuba, Sudan and Serbia announced that they had formed the "Axis of Somewhat Evil", forcing Somalia Time for a laugh Wendy Binnie to join with Uganda and Myanmar in the "Axis of Occasionally Evil", while Bulgaria, Indonesia and Russia established the "Axis of Not So Much Evil Really as Just Generally Disagreeable". With the criteria suddenly expanded and all the desirable clubs filling up, Sierra Leone, El Salvador, and Rwanda applied to be called the "Axis of Countries That Aren't the Worst But Certainly Won't Be Asked to Host the Olympics". Canada, Mexico and Australia formed the "Axis of Nations That Are Actually Quite Nice But Secretly Have Some Nasty Thoughts About America", while Scotland, New Zealand and Spain established the "Axis of Countries That Want Sheep to Wear Lipstick". "That's not a threat, really, just something we like to do", said Scottish Executive First Minister Jack McConnell. While wondering if the other nations of the world weren't perhaps making fun of him, a cautious Bush granted approval for most axis, although he rejected the establishment of the "Axis of Countries Whose Names End in 'Guay", accusing one of its members of filing a false application. Officials from Paraguay, Uruguay, and Chadguay denied the charges. Israel, meanwhile, insisted it didn't want to join any Axis, but privately world leaders said that's only because no PLEASESEEWENDY PAGE10 0008O7T First Congregational United Church of Christ First Congregational United Church of Christ A Progressive Community of Faith in the Heart of Central Florida An Open and Affirming Church Adult Bible Study 12:00 Noon Worship 10:30 am College Road Baptist Church 5010 SW College Road, Ocala, FL (352) 237-5741 Rev.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com R emember Earmarks? Thats a harmless sounding name for a sophisticated form of political corruption. Earmarks are directions from members of Congress telling agencies to spend funds on pet projects, organizations, and companies or to provide exemptions from taxes and fees. Campaign contributors and supporters are frequent beneficiaries of earmarked spending. Responding to press and public pressure during the last election, incoming House Republicans pledged a moratorium on earmarks. It turned out the moratorium had only one ear. The House cut five billion worth of goodies out of one funding bill and left five billion of earmarks in another. Gradual withdrawal from an addiction is less painful than having to kick the habit all at once. There was also an untouched basket of goodies left over in the 2010 budget, unspent earmarks hidden away in defense, transportation, and Corps of Engineers appropriations. One such project was a refuge for loons which stop at a lake in Nevada for a few days during their migrations every spring and fall. Why would loons need a refuge when they already know where theyre going and how to get there? In a time of fiscal crisis, many voters see earmarks as just another example of political deviousness. Over time, old fashioned bringing home the pork morphed into sending champagne and caviar to political supporters. Some of the hocus-pocus about earmarks is in the definition. Congress defines spending as an earmark if the project is a late add-on to an appropriations bill at the request of a lawmaker. They say preferential projects already tucked away in original bills shouldnt count as earmarks, no matter how ridiculous or devious they may be. An absence of earmarks can be negative. When Congress gave President Obama $800 billion of stimulus money and $350 billion of troubled asset money (TARP) with no spending directions, the president was free to create his own earmarks, spending where the money would return the most political benefit. For years Congress people said their earmarks were money that would have been spent anyway. They were just directing funds to the places where they needed to be spent, so the funds wouldnt get lost in the federal bureaucracy. All spending should be publicly debated in committee hearings with no add-ons allowed after bills are passed. Earmarking everything could provide Congress with better control over how funds are spent by the White House and federal bureaucracies. Unfortunately, that kind of transparency isnt popular with politicians, who are consumed with getting re-elected. Conversely voters are tired of congressional shenanigans. In a time of debt and deficit crises, there has to be some way to prevent another billion dollar earmark to reintroduce salmon to a river which went dry years ago. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 N obodys talking officially, but store employees are telling people that they are losing their jobs. The place is Kmart at Shady Oaks, at the corner of Southwest 27th Avenue and State Road 200 (College Road). Signs have popped up saying the store is going out of business, with signs on the pillars outside the facility saying Store closing sale. The people are saying its because of a rent increase, but we couldnt get anyone to confirm that. Kmarts corporate has always been uncooperative, and theyre sure not going to provide any information about a store failure. This store, in all honesty, always seemed to be the stepchild of the three stores in Marion County. The one on Silver Springs Boulevard is spacious with wide aisles, and the only time I was ever in the one in Belleview I was impressed. This store never was impressive. I was surprised it survived the last list of cutbacks that Kmart put out. Ironically, the decision to shut down this Kmart came about the same time that Walmart on State Road 200 was holding a grand reopening, to promote its lighting and spacious aisles and friendly greeters. And theres also another Walmart, just blocks south of this Kmart at the corner of Southwest 19th Avenue Road (Easy Street) and 27th Avenue (Shady Road). Over the past few years, the shopping center that houses Kmart has added a couple of other anchor stores, most notably Best Buy and Staples. But losing that big department store is never good for the future of a center. For some of us who have had long-time ties with Kmart, and who wear clothes from that store, this isnt a big blow because there are other stores. It could, however, be a sign of things to come, and thats not good. Efforts to get a comment from Kmart headquarters were unsuccessful. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, stuck to his guns this week and voted against the compromise bill to settle, at least for now, the debt ceiling battle in Congress. On his website, Stearns said he backed the plan put forth by Speaker of the House John Boehner. The problem is that the Boehner proposal was never going to pass. It is surprising that, with all of his experience, Stearns failed to recognize this while embracing the art of compromise to avoid a financial crisis in America. On his website, Stearns said, The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff identified our deficit crisis as Americas greatest threat, and this measure does not go far enough in holding down the growth in our national debt. Without significant spending cuts and reforms to essential programs, we are facing fiscal insolvency and the collapse of essential programs such as Social Security and Medicare. The final measure cuts less spending in the first year than the Boehner plan; the Boehner plan cut $22 billion compared with as little as $6 billion in this measure. I supported the Boehner plan to move us forward in reaching the $4 trillion in savings needed to avoid a ratings downgrade. This bill is $1.6 trillion short of what is needed to prevent a downgrade. This measure also makes it easier for the President to increase the debt limit in the future. In addition, the language for a balanced budget amendment is less precise and only requires a vote in the House and Senate instead of its actual passage by both that would result in it being sent to the states for ratification. Another concern was that this final plan sets discretionary spending for fiscal year 2012 at $24 billion higher than in the Ryan Budget Resolution, which I supported. There are times when people on both sides of the aisle have to give a little to get things done properly in the House. Its too bad that Stearns didnt recognize that when he voted against this bill. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Stearns sticks to his message Things going dark at SW Kmart Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Congressional concerns over fish and wildlife Some more thoughts regarding tax reformUpper and middle class taxpayers can no longer bear the entire tax burden. So what is left? The poor! Twenty-five years ago, only 19 percent of Americans paid no income taxes and now it is up to 47 percent. Do we ask ourselves why? Is it really because we are giving preference to the poor or is it that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer? A so-called fair tax or flat tax on the poor? Would that make them richer or poorer? Would this make the rich richer? Unfortunately there are, true, no fault of their own, people in our country who are poor and to ask them to pay up more money so the rich could get richer is ridiculous. We need to help the poor, and not to make it more difficult for them. May God bless us all, especially the poor. J. Paul Bronsard OTOW The big, bad Tea PartiesIt is interesting that the writer of Against The Tea Party believes we are the worst thing to happen to American politics. I will agree that we are probably the worst thing to happen to liberal, free spending, big government politics we have had in years. Lets look at why we are so bad! We have the nerve to believe that spending must come under control for we cannot continue raising our debt that is already increasing at $48 billion a day. We dont believe in passing down this huge deficit to our children since we believe in fiscal responsibility. We also believe in our Constitution, state rights, our national and state sovereignty, individual responsibility, limited government, our capitalistic system, our republic form of government, our right to bear arms, that we are a Christian nation, and free speech. We also believe that America is Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED the greatest nation in the world and want to keep it that way. We are respectful and patriotic and it shows in every rally we have held throughout the country. I cant help but question how much of the above gives him or any American so many problems? Liberals dont like our being conservative, but that is what we are, not belonging to any political party. We support conservative candidates and have been very disappointed in both parties. We also understand Economics 101, you cant spend your way into prosperity. One question I have is just how big our deficit must become before the liberals say no more? Maybe 20 trillion? Possibly 30 trillion? We are reaching the point of being a debtor nation, having our money taking a dramatic plunge in value, is this too difficult to understand? The simple truth is that without correction, we will go bankrupt and there truly will be no money. Cut the spending now, a whole lot more than either party is suggesting!

Later, catches offered something to barter or sell. Now, most people fish recreationally. Regardless of the purpose behind fishing, big catches stroke the angler's ego. Today, recreational fishing has an annual $7.5 billion economic impact in Florida. Habitat conservation and regulations help sustain these fisheries, but with greater demand it is increasingly important to protect and recycle the largest trophy fish by also promoting voluntary catch-andrelease. Florida's "Big Catch" angler recognition program helps stroke the ego of successful anglers by allowing them to show off their prowess. The Big Catch program provides a framable, full-color certificate and window sticker for anglers who catch any of 33 species of listed freshwater fishes that exceed a minimum length or weight. If people catch five qualifying fish of the same species, they are recognized as a Specialist. If they report five qualifying fish of different species, they become a Master Angler, and if they take and report qualifying fish representing 10 different species, they are an Elite Angler. Young people can enter fish that are approximately 25 percent smaller than adult qualifying sizes. Big Catch also encourages anglers to fish for a variety of species and to travel to locate them, while promoting appropriate catch and release. A new set of "TrophyCatch" marks and awards are in the works for trophy bass anglers. The TrophyCatch angler recognition program will be the hallmark of the long-term Florida Black Bass Management Plan, which the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved in June. The FWC intends to ensure that Florida is the undisputed bass fishing capital of the world. TrophyCatch will be a full-fledged initiative to document largemouth bass caught, and preferably released, throughout Florida that are heavier than 8 pounds. Incremental rewards and recognition will be provided to anglers reporting bass in the 8-10, 1012, 12-13 and greater than 13-pound categories. The anticipated rollout for TrophyCatch is October 2012. "This program, driven by private dollars, can substantially enhance Florida bass fishing by addressing ecological issues and encouraging recycling of trophy bass, but it will also have a great social and economic impact," said Tom Champeau, director of the FWC's Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. Biologists are developing specific handling guidelines to ensure anglers do the best possible job of effectively releasing these fish while providing the FWC with valuable research and marketing information. FWC representatives will certify bass over 13 pounds caught from October through April (beginning in 2012) for entry into the Florida Trophy Bass Hall of Fame. Sponsors, corporate partners and the media will provide incentives to encourage reporting and releasing all such catches. Fisheries biologists will use TrophyCatch reports to identify Florida's best bass fisheries to determine which management practices (e.g., habitat and aquatic plant management, regulations, stocking) are most effective in creating trophy fisheries. VISIT FLORIDA and the FWC will work with the media to use this information to establish Florida as a prime trophy bass fishing destination. Incorporating social media and online mapping resources will make this information widely available to the public and create a buzz as anglers report new trophies and post photos. Such recognition will increase both resident and nonresident angler participation and enjoyment, tackle and license sales, tourism and help create the next generation that cares about our natural resources and outdoor recreational heritage. In Florida, more recreational fishing days are spent on fresh water (24.4 million days by 1.4 million anglers) than on salt water. Largemouth bass are the most sought-after species not only in Florida but also in the nation. Bass anglers alone generate $1.25 billion for our economy, supporting thousands of jobs. Consequently, promoting and safeguarding Florida's trophy bass fisheries is good for everyone. Big catches still stroke anglers egos Outdoors 0008W9A M-Fri. 9-5/Sat.

This summer has been no exception. From books to blood to baked beans, our residents have stepped up to help those in need. Many thanks to them, as well as to those who have organized these drives. Operation: Stuff the Bus is now under way. This years Stuff the Bus school supply drive, organized in the community by resident Bob Majewski representing MOAA (Military Officers Association of America), is in full swing at the Lifestyle Center. Participating in Operation: Stuff the Bus gives you the opportunity to make a true difference in the education of a homeless or needy child. Some children might go without much-needed school suppliesor teachers would feel even more of a financial burden to buy the suppliesif not for Stuff the Bus. Items needed are new school supplies, such as pocket folders, notebooks and 3ring binders, as well as tennis shoes, books and games, and personal hygiene items. And remember, the 2011 Sales Tax Holiday runs Aug. 12 through Aug. 14, so no sales tax is collected on certain school supplies and clothing during that period. Your donation can be placed in the wicker basket in the Lifestyle Center. Of course, financial contributions are always welcome. Cash or checks made payable to Operation: Stuff the Bus with the memo Homeless Children Program may be given to Bob who will forward them to the organization. The bimonthly Blood Drive was held on Wednesday, July 20, and our residents again answered the call to help stock the blood bank at Floridas Blood Centers. FBC is the only blood bank serving Marion County hospitals, and it could not meet the needs Communitys residents always come through to help M ARION LANDING D B Diane Bress PHOTO BY LINA VALLEJOMarion Landings Aquasize Class led by Dotty Bouchet and Lina Vallejo. PLEASESEELANDING PAGE23 It looks like the heat is on. Guess we should enjoy it and think of the cold, snowy winters up North. Just remember to do as much as you can early in the morning. Even the swimming pool feels heated. The feature this week The feature this week is a retired school teacher from Iowa and her name is Fern Eberly. Fern was born Fern Willmott on a farm near Oto, Iowa. She was the youngest of seven children, with three brothers and three sisters. She went to a rural elementary school and said she walked 1 miles to and from school in all kinds of weather. Her folks lived on that farm for 42 years. She graduated from Oto High School in 1938 and stayed on the farm for another year to help her parents. She later attended Wayne State Teachers College in Wayne, Nebraska, and starting teaching in the fall of 1940. She tells the story of riding her white pony up to school and back home in bad weather. Fern spent five years teaching in rural schools and later taught junior high school students in Iowa for seven more years. While attending summer school in 1945 at Wayne State in Nebraska she met Rhea Eberly at a weekly dance. They didnt meet again until 1951 at the University of Colorado. Rhea was working on his Masters degree. They married in June of 1952. Fern moved to Emerson, Neb., where her husband was teaching at a high school. She took a job at a rural power district. They had one daughter, Trudy. They also had a French foreign student stay with them for one year. Trudy later married and moved to Kansas City and had two sons, Kevin and Kyle. Fern says she always liked to experience new things. Some of her jobs were working at a coin laundry, detasseling and sorting corn, being an elevator operator, waitress, baby sitter, selling Avon products and last but not least being a substitute teacher. Fern and Rhea moved to Spruce Creek North in 1988. They enjoyed square dancing for six years and riding their bicycles for many years. Rhea passed away in 2008. Ferns many positions held in SCN were accompanying the chorus for 13 years, she and her hubby set sprinklers for new lawns, she was a waitress and treasurer for the pancake breakfast. She calls on new SCN residents, is in charge of distribution of the SCN phone books, member of Human Touch, leader of Saturday water exercise, secretary of the social committee, plus chairperson of the Labor Day potluck. She is a long time member of the Marion Oaks Presbyterian Church. Her hobbies are playing the organ, sewing, crewel work, cooking, baking, watching sports, exercising, playing 500 and riding her bike (before she got too old). Her words, not mine. The lady from Iowa truly has had a full life and has been a wonderful volunteer for SCN. She also has been blessed with very good health. We all thank her and wish her a wonderful birthday in December, her 90th! Thanks to Fern for having so much written down to make my job a little easier. Free Dance Expo The free dance exposition was held on July 17 and they had a great turnout of approximately 80 people attending. Cindy Hutchins, president of the social committee was very pleased. The next event for SCN will be a Potluck party on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5. A sign-up sheet will be at the clubhouse. Fern Eberly is the organizer for this event. Then on Sept. 17, there will be a Hawaiian Luau It will be a buffet and there will be Hawaiian dancers. More information on both of these events will be reported later plus posters and sign-up sheets will be on the SCN bulletin board. I never deliberately leave out volunteers names so I want to thank Colin Holloway for helping on the SCN Memorial Day picnic. What would we do without volunteers? Sorry about that Colin. Crape Myrtles I have always said that crape myrtle bushes and trees are the only thing that can survive the hot summers and sometimes cold spells of winter. So hubby and I finally bought one and it was loaded with blooms five weeks after we planted it! It replaces our lemon tree that got zapped last winter. This crape myrtle is the Miami variety. We know our crape myrtle will survive and they are the closest thing to a lilac bush. Nice seeing you John! It was sure great to bump into John G. of Oak Run at Publix. One nice guy! Various Clubs I guess the heat is responsible for so many SCN clubs closing for the summer. SCN residents look forward to the return of bocce, shuffleboard, horseshoe pitching and several other clubs in the fall. Wrinkles? Ladies, have you ever watched the commercials about getting rid of wrinkles? The models are around 19 years old and dont even know what a wrinkle is! Rudys Article A few weeks ago I read an article written by Rudy Schasel of Oak Run. It was about the USA going to the aid of foreign countries when the USA needs desperate help at home with all the destruction from the floods and tornados. Great article Rudy! A truly wonderful lady It was very sad to hear about the passing of Pauline Moore who worked for the Citizen newspaper. She will be missed by all who knew her. I will be back on Sept. 2. See you then! Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her hubby Jim. She can be reached via e-mail at JnLiber@aol.com or messages dropped at the SCN clubhouse in the mail slots.

Rainbows End will host the first of three night golf events, said Don Delany, owner of the nine-hole municipal course. The inaugural event tees off Saturday, Aug. 13, with dates scheduled for Sept. 10 and Oct. 8. Cost for the scramble event is $140 per team, but includes a barbecue dinner and the necessary supplies for night golf. All three events will coincide with a full moon. The field for the scramble is being capped at 14 teams, Delany said. Coming up with the idea isnt his, though. Some of the regular players had played in events like this before and wanted us to do it, Delany explained. So after much prodding by his regulars, Delany decided to take the leap. Hes already got the night golf equipment in stock. Now, its a matter of filling the field for the inaugural event. He said hes filling team spots, so if you want to play, get a team together. For now, this is a test run, but if it catches on it could become a regular event when the weather allows. While Williston used to host such events, Delaney is hopeful it will become a popular event because no one else in the immediate area offers night golf. Were really hoping it attracts a different crowd, he said. Maybe couples will come out and make this a date night. It doesnt matter how you play, this is going to be something different. If it catches on as we hope, its certainly something will consider doing on a regular basis, maybe March through November.

Friday, August 5, 2011 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, August 5, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A more harmonious aspect favors all relationships. Family ties with mates and children are strengthened. Libra is Cupids choice to win the amorous Aries heart. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The bold Bull is ready to take on fresh challenges. Expect some opposition as you plow new ground but supporters will outnumber detractors. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) An upcoming job change could mean uprooting your family to a far-distant location. Weigh all considerations carefully before making a decision one way or the other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A long-standing problem is resolved by a mutually agreed upon compromise. You can now focus on getting the facts youll need for a decision youll soon be asked to make. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Big Cat needs to be wary of what appears to be a golden investment opportunity. That sure thing could turn out to be nothing more than a sack of Kitty Glitter. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You give of yourself generously to help others, but right now you must allow people to help you. Confide your problems to family and trusted friends. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relationships benefit from a strong harmonious aspect. Things go more smoothly at work. Someone you thought youd never see again asks for a reconciliation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A minor distraction interferes with travel plans, but the delay is temporary. Meanwhile, expect to play peacemaker once again for feuding family members. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Keep that positive momentum going on the home front. Arrange your schedule to spend more time with your family. Youll soon have news about that job change. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Control that possessive tendency that sometimes goads you into an unnecessary display of jealousy. You could be creating problems where none currently exist. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new project holds some challenges you hadnt expected. But dont be discouraged; youll find youre more prepared to deal with them than you realized. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Yours is the sign of the celestial Chemist, so dont be surprised if you experience a pleasant chemistry betwixt yourself and that new Leo in your life. BORN THIS WEEK : You enjoy being fussed over, as befits your royal Leonine nature. You also have a strong loyalty to family and friends. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Making changes to lighting are some of the easiest ways to manage electric use and cost. Many inexpensive options exist to help you save watts and dollars including new bulb technology, dimmers, photo sensors and motion sensors. Progress Energy Florida has tips to help customers lighten their electric bills and a chance to win compact-fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Turning off lights that arent in use is one of the easiest and most effective ways to lower your lighting cost. Consider that the average home contains 45 light bulbs. Now take into account that cutting back on four hours of daily use on just four, 60-watt bulbs (the number often contained in a ceiling fan light fixture, for example) could reduce a customers energy costs by more than $45 over the course of a year. The more unnecessary lights that are turned off, the more customers can potentially save. Bulb types Take energy savings one step further and replace traditional incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient CFL bulbs. Prices have dropped on CFL bulbs and now dimmable versions and various light colors (warm or soft white, cool or bright white and daylight or natural) to meet a variety of needs are readily available. Replacing just eight frequently used bulbs with CFLs can save up to $72 per year in electric costs. Not only do CFLs use 75 percent less energy, the bulbs last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Progress Energy is giving way a set of eight CFL bulbs to lucky Florida customers who sign up to follow Progress Energys social media channels on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ProgressEnergyFlorida) or Twitter (@progressenergy) from Aug. 1 to Aug. 10. Five winners will be selected from each social media channel. Complete rules are available at www.progress-energy.com/cflgiveaway. Look into LED (lightemitting diode) bulbs for even more energy savings. A typical LED bulb uses even less electricity than an equivalent CFL. A 100watt traditional bulb running 24 hours a day for a year would cost more than $110 to operate. Running an equivalent CFL bulb for the same amount of time would cost about $25 per year; an LED bulb would cost about $20 per year. Plus, LED bulbs last 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs up to 10 years when used 12 hours a day making them an ideal choice for lights that are difficult to change. Consider your use as LED bulb prices are significantly higher than other types, ranging from about $10 for a 40-watt equivalent bulb to more than $50 for a flood light bulb. Sensors Install motion sensors on outdoor light fixtures and you wont have to remember to turn off the porch light before you go to bed. The outdoor porch or lamp post is one of the mostused home light fixtures, and is the perfect place to install energy-efficient lighting products. Another good application is an often-used hallway. Photo sensors can also help lower energy use by automatically turning lights on at night and off during the day. They are another good option for outdoor lighting. The simplest versions only run a few dollars and simply screw into the existing light socket between the socket and the bulb. Dimmers Dimmers can soften the light level in a home while lowering electric costs. Most modern dimmers clip off part of the alternating current wave form, which is similar to turning the power off for a fraction of a second dozens of times a second. This gives the appearance of a lower or dimmed light level. The electric cost savings is nearly equal to the amount that you dim the lights. Dim the light 25 percent and you save roughly 20 percent of the electricity normally used by the bulb. Rheostat-type dimmers, often found in older homes, do not save energy. They just change the extra power into heat right at the dimmer switch. Also, many CFL and LED bulbs are not dimmable. Progress Energy recommends reading the package labels carefully when selecting bulbs. Making a few changes in bulb types, lighting accessories and habits can add up to big savings on your electric bill every month.For more energy-saving tips visit www.progress-energy.com/save.

Royal Oaks Lady Niners The Lady Niners played a Low Putts game on Thursday, July 21. Many of us would have been in contention if the game had been Most Putts. However, there were a few who knew how to play the game. B.J. Lassiter made a chip-in on the 10th hole and of course it counted as zero putts for that hole! In Flight A, B.J. Lassiter was the winner and Rae Stover came in second place. In Flight B, Vicki Ellin was the winner, and Ilene Simnowitz came in second. Congratulations ladies! The Lady Niners played Throw Out Worst Hole on Thursday, July 28. In Flight A, Elsa Berbig and B.J. Lassiter tied for first place. Patty Waddell and Cindy Kocher tied for second. In Flight B, Carolee Riola and Eleanor Cerlenko tied for first place. Vicki Ellin, Joyce Madill and Diana Schmidt tied for second. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, July 26, we played one of our favorite games, Throw Out Two Worst Holes. We each had the opportunity to deduct our two highest scores from the final total. All of us know that we always have at least two bad holes for each round and after this game we were allowed to eliminate those scores. What a great idea! The winners were First flight: 1st place Elsa Berbig, 2nd place Noreen Salo; second flight: 1st place Lynn Houghton, 2nd place Carol Clark; third flight: 1st place Ilene Simnowitz, 2nd place Arlene Klann. Closest to the Pin on the 3rd Hole was Carol Clark. The weather threatened during the entire round but we finished before any heavy rain occurred. The course is in great shape but the rough is deadly and needs to be avoided. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The rain we had last week improved the fairways and greens, and 45 players turned out for the July 29 game. As usual, the scoring was three best net. The winners with a score of 195 were Emmet Dowling, Bill Ellin, Bill Start and Duke Slayton. Second with a score of 197 were Dale Wurzburger, Larry Collins, Paul Colatruglio and Dick Spano. Rounding out the top three with a 198 were Bruce Stover, Steve Kollar, Bill Staiger and Pat Schiavo. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Chuck Engel, Art Pruneau, and Mark Best (2).

A 21-year-old southwest Ocala man was accused of armed residential burglary and petit theft after being caught at a residence on State Road 200. Todd K. Drury, of Southwest 76th Avenue, told deputies he was just going into the house to feed the dogs. According to the report, Drury was spotted at the yard next door, standing near a storage shed. After he was told to leave, the resident called 9-11. When deputies responded, they saw Drury at the house next door, carrying an axe. The original family that called 9-1-1 said the axe belonged to them and had been on a table near the shed. The owner of the house next door was contacted and said he did not know the suspect. Drury was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail. Man accused of burglary When anon-descript cardboard box weighing 40 pounds was delivered to Ocala Fire Rescue recently, Battalion Chief Brian Stoothoff knew exactly what was contained within from looking at the return address: The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. This story actually began two years ago. I read in a magazine an article that the Port Authority was offering steel from the World Trade Center to organizations that would commit to creating a display to preserve the memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11. I immediately drafted a letter and completed the required paperwork. I was elated when we received notification that Ocala would be receiving an artifact, said Stoothoff. The piece of steel beam will soon be placed on display inside the Fire Administration building, as a powerful remembrance of the events that unfolded on 9-11-01, where 2,606 civilians including 343 New York firefighters died in the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings. Although the piece of steel is rusted and battered, the steel beam has special meaning. It is not known which tower the steel is from, however it is marked by investigators in white chalk as piece number H-0061s. My hope is to eventually create an exhibit to display the steel beam in a fire station where people can sit and reflect on what happened that day. We have photographs and other memorabilia that we would like to have appropriately displayed states Chief Stoothoff. This September will mark the10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

A millage rate of 3.89 equates to $3.89 for each $1,000 of taxable property value, or $389 for a home with a taxable value of $100,000. The resulting tax levy is $5 million below the roll-back rate (the amount Marion County collected in taxes in the last fiscal year) and $25 million below the maximum tax levy allowed under Florida law. In short, the 3.89 tentative millage rate will result in a tax savings (compared to the current year) for Marion County citizens. Taxable property values, provided by Property Appraiser Villie Smith, showed that the total taxable property value (used for budgeting purposes) declined by 8 percent this year, resulting in a $5.2 million shortfall. During the last four years, Marion County has experienced a 33 percent drop in taxable property value, a decrease of approximately $7.4 billion. Marion Countys departments and constitutional offices decreased the budget by $32 million, or from $574 million in the 2010-2011 adopted budget to $542 million in the 2011-2012 tentative budget. Commissioners will host two public hearings before approving the final millage rate and budget; the first is set for Sept. 8 at 6:50 p.m. It is open to the public and held at the county government office, (601 S.E. 25th Ave., Ocala).
