PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK Probation Officers in 11 counties along with 45 law enforcement agencies working together in a joint operation made surprise face-to-face contact with hundreds of probationers including gang members, sex offenders, and violent felons during the evening hours of Tuesday, Aug. 16. As a result, 58 offenders were arrested, 24 weapons were taken off the streets, one Methamphetamine lab dismantled and 1.75 pounds of Methamphetamine seized. The 11 counties that participated in the operation are part of the Community Justice Coalition, which began as a threecounty initiative in 2007. There have been 12 previous operations resulting in numerous arrests and the removal of weapons and drugs from the hands of convicted felons on probation. Law enforcement agencies from Brevard, Indian River, Lake, Marion, Martin, Orange, Osceola, Polk, St. Lucie, Seminole, and Volusia counties were involved in Tuesdays operation. In Marion County there were 7 law enforcement teams involved, 28 offender contacts, 5 offender arrests, 3 non-offender arrests. Contraband seized: three firearms, five other weapons seized, and one drug paraphernalia (crackpipe) Probation sweep nets 58 in state PLEASESEESWEEP PAGE3 Women golfers at Candler raise $1,000 for HospiceBY MARY PAT GIFFIN Special to the Citizen Congratulations and kudos to Candler Hills women golfers for raising $1,000 for Hospice of Marion County. Piper Thomas and Connie Norris sold tickets during July on league day for the 50/50 drawing to raise money to support this worthy cause. And, several women, who won were generous enough to give part of their winnings back for Hospice.

With the sluggish economy, only 90 newly hired teachers started their Marion County teaching careers last week with New Teacher Orientation at Forest High School. Just four years ago, that number topped 400. This Monday, another 2,900-plus returning teachers headed back to their classrooms in Marion Countys 49 public schools. Meantime, a projected 41,540 students are expected on the first day of school come Monday, Aug. 22. This is 332 fewer students than last years peak attendance. The new school years shaping up for Marion County Public Schools as the district deals with issues like cutting budgets, maintaining class size limits, and meeting higher academic standards and unfunded mandates. Parents can ease their frustrations and avoid long waiting lines by registering their children before school starts. This includes kindergarten students, who will stagger start their first days, meaning theyll attend just one day of class during the first few days of school, lowering the student-teacher ratio dramatically to enhance the transition into school. Monday is back-to-class day in Marion Countys schools PLEASESEESCHOOLS PAGE3

A driver involved in a minor accident near Majestic Oaks the afternoon of Aug. 14 was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, both misdemeanors, and DUI with property damage, according to jail records. According to the report, Tarae Tarrell Massey, 19, of Southwest 100th Lane, was seen putting drugs in his pants pocket. A search of him and the car produced the marijuana and a jar called a chopper, which is used to cut marijuana into small pieces. According to the report, while en route to the jail, the defendant began spontaneously saying he did not understand why he was being arrested as marijuana is a natural substance that comes from the earth, and he sees no problem with smoking it and will continue to do so. The defendant also in a spontaneous outburst stated he has been smoking marijuana for five years, and it has not affected him at all as he is in college. A man seen driving down the road and failing to stay in a single lane was arrested for driving while his license was suspended or revoked. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Harold Odell Skipper, 66, of Southwest 80th Street, Dunnellon, was seen driving on Southwest 129 Terrace Road at 3:20 a.m. on Aug. 10. As the deputy followed the vehicle, it began weaving from side to side failing to maintain a lane, according to the report. A computer check on the Skipper showed his license was permanently revoked on June 13, 1990, for DUI. He was taken to jail, and released the same day under $10,000 bond. A 28-year-old Ocala man was arrested for DUI after he was stopped on State Road 200 for failing to stay within a single lane. A deputy spotted the vehicle about 2 a.m. on Aug. 14 and pulled him over. William Torres of Southwest 128th Loop reportedly failed the field sobriety test and was taken to jail, where his breath allegedly registered .111 and .121.

The victims were Jocalyn Gray, age 27; Codarrian Hill, age 9; Coderica Hill, age 7; and Bridget Gray, 52. Bridget Gray was the adult who lived in the house.. Detectives spoke to a child, who stated that she watched as her mother (Jocalyn) went to the front door, and as the door opened, she saw a yellow and white flash, heard a bang, and watched as her mother fell immediately to the ground, half in and half out of the house.

The Marie Mastrioanni memorial tournament was held on July 28. Following golf, a delicious spread of homemade goodies was provided by members. Fund raising events that day included the raffle, mulligans, pay the pro for hitting drives, and for the cash bar. Dancing tunes were loaded on Kelli Brunners IPOD because Marie loved to dance. Since the nine-hole league supported the raffle, they were invited to the community center for refreshments. Marie was an avid golfer, sang karaoke, danced up a storm. A member of the 18hole CHLGA, she is fondly remembered by her friends and neighbors. She passed away a year ago and te league wanted to celebrate her life. Thats why the golfers rallied to raise money for Hospice of Marion County. It helps so many people during their decline. Gail Banavige shares her memory of Marie. How can I describe Marie, Gail wrote. Outgoing, fun, full of the devil and one of the nicest ladies I have ever known. They met golfing when Gail first joined the 18-hole league and Marie took her under her wing. She invited Gail and her husband, John, to join her and Roger at the Arbor Club. A close friendship was born. Dancing, wine, golf, family and friends were what Marie was all about, with a bit of mischief thrown in, said Gail. She was always ready to have fun and wanted everyone else to have just as much fun. She was the first one to try to make a new person to the area feel welcome and at home. Joan Gustafson remembers Marie for always including everyone in the group. She was always smiling and laughing and enjoying hers, which made you feel good. Marie was always very welcoming and I never saw her without a smile, said Heddy Racinowski. She was the first person, who encouraged me to join the CHLGA. 18-Hole CHLGA Winners Two Best Balls of Three August 11 1st place: 127 Kelli Brunner, Piper Thomas, Blind Draw 2nd place: 131 Connie Norris, Andrea Fratarangelo, Betty Weiner Stableford August 4 1st flight: 44-Su Freeman; Tie at 38-Iro Lisinski and Connie Norris 2nd flight: 40-Betty Dong; 37-Patty Ware 3rd flight: 43-Piper Thomas; 38-Marge Cowie One Best Ball of Three July 28 55-Su Freeman, Irmgard Anger, Heddy Racinowski 55-Joan DAddio, Gina Bulloch, Donna Sauer 55-Kelli Brunner, Marge Cowie, Joan Gustafson Crisscross (best of nine holes) July 21 1st flight: 26-Connie Norris; 28-Su Freeman; 30 Iro Lisinski; 30-Tona Scheibal 2nd flight: 27-Toni Stevenson; 28-Judy McGrath; 29-Andrea Fratarangelo; 3rd flight: 25-Piper Thomas; 27-Joan Gustafson; 28-Marge Cowie Shamble July 14 111-Mia Kolar, Barb Masaschi, Mary Pat Giffin. 112-Iro Lisinski, Patty Ware, Carol Clark 114-Kelli Brunner, Gail Banavige, Marge Cowie.

The teams of probation and law enforcement officers targeted probationers with violent and sex offenses. Additionally, probationers that were suspected to be involved with drugs or gangs were also targeted. The teams visited the homes of these violent felons and conducted walk throughs of their residences to ensure that they are complying with their conditions of probation. The Departments mission is public safety, and by working side-by-side with other law enforcement in these sweeps, we play an integral part in keeping our streets safe from weapons, drugs and offenders who refuse to abide by the law, said Department of Corrections Secretary Ed Buss. This operation resulted in the seizure of 24 weapons, assorted types of narcotics (one gram of Cocaine, 9.5 grams of crack cocaine, 1.04 pounds of Marijuana, 1.76 pounds of Methamphetamine, seven prescription medications (eight Xanax, three Hydrocodone, 13 Seroquel pills, one Suboxone pill, four Oxycodone, one Aviane, and 18 Prozac) and assorted drug paraphernalia. The law enforcement teams knocked on the doors of more than 703 offenders. In addition, 58 probationary offenders were taken into custody for criminal violations discovered during the sweep, and 23 non-probation offenders were also arrested, totaling 81 physical arrests and 94 criminal charges. As a result of this operation, there were four gangrelated arrests. Additional arrests may occur over the next several days based on information gained during the sweep.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T O A D V E R T I S E H E R E C A L L T O M O R S U S I E A T 8 5 4 3 9 8 6 4 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com A lthough your air conditioner is supposed to keep you cool, your summer electric bills for the cost of running that air conditioner just might make you break out in a nervous sweat. The good news is that with the following tips from UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, you can beat the heat and cool down your electric bills. Factors out of your control, such as temperature, solar radiation and relative humidity determine how much heat is available to enter your home. Safeguarding your home against this heat reduces how hard your air conditioning unit has to work to efficiently cool your home. And the less your air conditioner works, the less you pay in electric bills each month. Bolster your heat-resistant bulwarks If heat is the enemy and your home is your air conditioned castle, insulation is one of the best ways to bolster the bulwarks and stop heat flow into your home. Insulation is graded using R-values that measure thermal resistance. The higher the Rvalue, the better the insulation resists the transfer of heat. Though fully replacing your insulation often isnt practical, adding insulation to your attic is an easier option. Insulating your attic to the recommended value of R-30 is relatively inexpensive and helps prevent up to 140-degree attic air from flowing into your home. If your attic already has insulation, ensure theres enough to adequately protect your home from the hot temperatures outside. To reach R-30, you should have one of the following: Nine inches of fiberglass batting insulation. Nine inches of blown-in cellulose insulation. Twelve inches of blownin fiberglass or Rockwool insulation. Spray foam insulation varies. Contact a local insulation contractor. Visit www.energystar.gov for more information on tax credits that can help with the cost of adding attic insulation. Your energy provider may also provide incentives. Help your air conditioner run efficiently If you already have adequate insulation, try these other simple steps that directly influence how efficiently your air conditioner runs. Check your air filter once a month during peak season (now). Dirty air filters make your air conditioner work harder to move the same amount of air, so replace as needed. Dont let debris build up around your outside air compressor. Leaves and other debris make it more difficult for the compressor to operate efficiently. Have a local HVAC contractor check your ductwork. Holes or tears will let cool air escape into your attic or crawlspaces, making your air conditioner work harder to cool down your living space. Set your thermostat for 78 degrees. Every degree below 78 degrees can equate to an eight percent increase in your monthly cooling cost. Purchase a programmable thermostat and set it for a warmer temperature when youre not home. Caulk and weather-strip around doors and windows. This helps create an air tight building envelope.

Also, it is against the law in Florida to leave an animal in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open. Dont take your pet on errands unless you can bring them in to the store with you. Just a bit of time in a hot car is torture for them even if it doesnt kill them. So leave them home in comfort instead. We say this every year, but every year these practices continue. So sad. S P CA N ews The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Therefore, our next meeting will be Thursday, September 15th. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for that date and come out and join us as we start our new year. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at 352-362-0985 to find out more.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com A nyone looking for a loving feline companion need look no further than Kitty, the handsome fellow pictured here. Kitty was rescued last month by a Good Samaritan truck driver passing through town and is now thriving in foster care. Hes about 10 years old, neutered, declawed and current on shots. Sweet Kitty is calm and friendly and gets along with other cats as well as dogs that dont bark too much. If you want to add him to a multi-animal household, that should work out just fine. If you want to have him all to yourself hed be happy to be your one and only. So if you want him to beat the odds once again, help him find his forever home by calling the SPCA at 352362-0985. Our first Animal Center dog of the month is Gracie the pit bull mix puppy. At only three months old, Gracie was found as a stray wandering around by Animal Control. Shes described as very loving but active what puppy isnt and only 13 lbs. at this point. If you want a different look to your dog, Gracie also fits that bill. She has a unique face because of her clear gray eyes, and you can gaze at them adoringly as you start to train and bond with her. If youre looking for a happy puppy that likes to follow you around and stay by your side, give the Animal Center a call today at 352-6718700 and youll soon be saying Goodnight Gracie If you would like a young adult dog for your family dog, but not a puppy, then Blaze the 4 year old Chihuahua mix could be the boy for you. Blaze also has a unique look, with a wire haired face that looks a bit like a German shepherd and a Chihuahua style body. At 30 lbs. full grown, hes a great size for any type of household. Poor Blaze was turned over to the Animal Center when his owner couldnt take care of his dogs any longer. The other dogs, all puppies, found new homes right away. No one wanted the unusual looking Blaze and now its your chance to add some spice to your life with this adorable pal. Youll have tons of fun playing outside together and youll never misplace him at the dog park among the usual Shih Tzus and lab mixes. Gracies ID number is A051462 and Blazes is A042686. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at 352-671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. Dog Days of Summer Weve had a very hot and humid summer this year and this weather could continue through September, at least. Too many dogs are still left out in wire crates in the back yard sun or in cars. If dogs need to be outside in the summer (preferably they should be indoors in air conditioning), they need a place with cold water and shade where they can escape the blazing sun when they need to. If you see a dog in distress, please try to let their owner know and give them a chance to remedy the situation. If they dont, call Animal Control who Heres a lovely feline companion, just for you P AWS AND CLAWS M D Maria Devine This is Kitty.

I n 1988 Congress, by a House Joint Resolution, designated this coming Sunday, Aug. 21, to be National Senior Citizens Day. President Reagan then issued a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. Of course, appropriate activities for Pun Alley are some senior stories. Senile? A couple, married as childhood sweethearts 60 years ago, had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. On their anniversary they walked back to their old school and reminisced about their teen romance. On their walk back home a bag of money fell out of an armored car. Sally quickly picked it up and they took it home. Andy said, Weve got to give it back. Sally said, Finders keepers. She hid the moneybag in the attic. The next day, two policemen were looking for the money and knocked on their door. Pardon me, but you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday? Sally said, No. Andy said, Shes lying. She hid it up in the attic. Sally said, Dont believe him; hes getting senile. The policemen turned to Andy and began to question him. One said, Tell us the story from the beginning. Andy said, Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday... The first officer turned to his partner and said, Were outta here! Finally qualified The department store clerk approached the personnel manager with some hesitation and said, I think I will retire soon. My doctor told me that my hearing is going fast and I know I dont hear many of the customers. The manager replied, Please stay. Youre now qualified for the compliant department. Senior moments An archaeologist is the best husband any lady can have. The older she gets, the more interested he is in her. Youre over the hill when your back goes out more than you do. Its not true that women change their minds frequently. Ask one her age and she will tell you the same answer for several years. Growing older is merely a matter of feeling your corns rather than feeling your oats. Im not getting old. My mirror is just getting wrinkled. A mans life is 20 years of having his mother ask him where he is going, 40 years of having his wife ask the same question and, at the end, having the mourners wondering too. If youre yearning for the good old days, just turn off the air conditioning. The age of some women is like the odometer on a used car; you know its set back, but you dont know how far. Aging is the only available way to live a long time. Seniors shouldnt eat health foods. They need all the preservatives they can get. Dont complain about growing old; many people dont have that privilege. One nice thing about being old. As the noise level goes up, your hearing goes down. Pulling his leg On examining a senior, the doctor said, that pain in your leg is caused by old age. The senior replied, dont be silly. My other leg is the same age and it doesnt hurt at all. When? An irate customer called the newspaper office and loudly demanded, Where Is my Sunday paper? Maam, said the newspaper employee, Today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on Sunday. There was quite a long pause on the other end of the line, followed by a sense of recognition as she muttered, Well, so thats why no one was at church today. Hairy decision Two elderly ladies were discussing the upcoming dance at the country club. Were supposed to wear something that matches our husbands hair, so Im wearing black, said Mrs. Smith. Oh my, said Mrs. Jones, Id better not go. Which way? The elderly woman at the nursing home received a visit from a church member. How are you feeling? the visitor asked. Oh, said the lady, Im just worried sick! What are you worried about, dear? her friend asked. The lady slowly explained her major worry, Every close friend I ever had has already died and gone on to heaven. Im afraid theyre all wondering where I went. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in R eaders looking for a cinematic plot that is convoluted all the way to the end and with twists and turns and speed will find it in Hells Corner. On the other hand, the same high intensity will cause reader fatigue for some, particularly with the myriad characters Baldacci serves up. The title comes from the security peculiarities about Lafayette Park, just across from the White House. The protagonist, Oliver Stone, explains: This is Hells Corner. Pennsylvania Avenue, the actual street, belongs to the D.C. metro cops. The sidewalks around Lafayette Park are the Secret Services turf and the park itself comes under the jurisdiction of the Park Police. Secret Service agents are actually taught to grab a person of interest from the street or park, carry him to the sidewalk and then arrest him there to prevent a pissing contest over jurisdiction. This sets the scene for the triggering event one night when the British PM was scheduled to stroll across the park to Blair House. A turned ankle in the White House changed all that. Nevertheless, shortly after dark a bomb explodes in the park and then gunfire erupts from a number of other places around the park. Stone was supposed to be on assignment out of the country but his orders are immediately changed. He and his team must now scour videos to determine who was in the park on the night in question. Four unlikely suspects appear in the videos: a woman in black slacks on a bench who seemed to be dozing, an overweight jogger, and a man in a suit carrying a briefcase and paying inordinate attention to a statue of German army officer Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben; and, finally, a ganger sort in prison shuffle jeans. Helping Stone run down the list are members of the Camel Club, familiar to Baldacci fans, and a few new characters like British Mary Chapman to round out the cast. Heightening suspense is the readers growing awareness that team members are withholding vital info from each other. Recommended mostly for those already Baldacci fans.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in T he mission of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is to provide nonpartisan analyses of government proposals, as well as information and estimates for the Congressional budget process. The CBO has been very busy lately, after two and a half years during which Congress and the White House were doing unlimited spending and not bothering with fussy budgets. CBO takes no political positions. Simply stated, CBO calls em as it sees em. They make every effort to maintain their reputation for impartiality. CBO is not an umpire, not a score keeper, not even a statistician. Congress has other agencies that perform those functions, such as the General Accounting Office and the Congressional Research Services. Give the CBO a set of taxspend-and-borrow numbers, and their computers will project consequences based on current law and practices. Therein lies a problem not caused by CBO. Current law and practices are subject to interpretation and twisting in the ever-shifting winds of political power and bureaucratic convenience. Some news people and politicians have expressed concern that the accuracy of CBOs past projections are not the right information on which to be making budget, debt and deficit decisions. A reasonable response is to ask where else we might find impartial assessments of the latest lunacies to emerge from Congress and the White House? CBO has indeed projected deficits and surpluses which never happened. Their projections were accurate in the moment in which they were issued. But as soon as the numbers were belched out of the CBO computers, Congress, the White House, and numerous federal bureaucracies began making changes. CBO is not a crystal-ball agency. Their projections are like trip-ticks from AAA. CBO says: If you go down the road outlined in the numbers you gave us, heres where youre likely to end up. They should add Air bags and seatbelts recommended. Criticism of the long-range accuracy of CBO numbers is the latest rationale for not making what big spenders call sudden and unwise policy changes. Translation: The debt and deficit legislation passed recently by Congress and signed by the president should have been put off until they had more information in other words until after the next election, indefinitely, or never, whichever comes last. In the meantime argue the critics, whats needed are new budget priorities, new tax revenue, new investments toward economic growth in the future more taxes, more borrowing, and more spending. More spending has been tried already, nine trillion dollars in bailouts, most of which went into the stock market, not job creation, and eight hundred billion in stimulus money which saved a lot of public and union employees, but it didnt create any new jobs. The mantra well hear for the foreseeable future is Dont pay attention to those scary numbers out of the CBO computers. Trust us until after the next election and well make all things right in the here and hereafter. Our response is not Amen. Its BS (meaning more baloney stuffing). www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 T he last couple of weeks in Marion County, we had our own little version of CSI, Law and Order, Covert Affairs, NCIS and whatever other cop show you watch all thrown into one. The occasion was the tragic deaths of four people in one house in the Northwest area. Two women and two children were found in a burning house on Aug. 5, and it was soon discovered that all four had been shot before the fire. After a few days, deputies arrested the boyfriend of one of the victims and accused him of four homicides and one case of arson. He was booked into the county jail. The arrest affidavit showed some bizarre events, all of which were worthy of a TV plot. First, the boyfriend said he was in two other locations about the time of the murder. But he met with a friend and apparently asked him about cell phones being used to trace his whereabouts. That friend eventually went to deputies, and the Sheriffs Office obliged by checking cell phone records, and they allegedly showed that he was in the area of the deaths at the time of the fire. So the next time one of the people on the TV shows gets on a computer and checks cell phone records, guess what? It can be real. The suspect allegedly told the friend he was high on pot laced with other drugs, and said it all felt like he was playing a video game, according to the affidavit. All the TV stations really jumped on that phrase. The Sheriffs Office got the informant to wear a wire, and sure enough, the suspect allegedly made more incriminating statements on record, and eventually he was arrested. There was another little subplot. Anyone who watches these cop shows will tell you that officials always look to family members first in a case like this, but the father of the two little children had a rock solid alibi he was in jail on a DUI charge. What made this even worse was that there were witnesses children in a truck in which one of the victims arrived. One told deputies they saw a flash, heard a bang and saw their mother fall and get dragged inside the house. Can you imagine the trauma those young people went through? Neighbors pulled them out of the truck during the subsequent fire. The bottom line is that our local Sheriffs Office, confronted with a major crime that can test the emotions as well as the investigative capabilities, made an arrest within a few days. Im sure it took a lot of man hours to get evidence against a suspect, and it isnt over. As of this writing on Friday, theyre still looking for the gun, and a reward has been offered for information leading to the weapons recovery. Now comes the long, drawnout part, as the case works its way through the court system. On TV, its all done in one or two hours. But in real life, it takes a lot more effort and hard work to prove a case. Law enforcement officials should be praised for what theyve done in this gruesome crime.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

O nce again those big yellow buses are ready to travel the highways and byways of Marion County, taking children to and from school. Classes for public school students begin on Monday, Aug. 22. Some private schools, including big ones such as Trinity Catholic High School and Blessed Trinity Elementary School, have already started. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1.If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2.If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3.If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4.However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. You can also save yourself some time and money in the process. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Royal Oaks Lady Niners All Par 3s was the game played on Thursday, Aug. 4. Elsa Berbig was the winner and Eleanor Cerlenko was second. Tied for third were B.J. Lassiter and Salita Timmermeyer. Elsa Berbig made a chip-in on the 10th hole. On Aug. 11 the game was Mutt and Jeff which means only the par 3s and par 5s counted. In flight A, Elsa Berbig won and Sally Crass was second. In flight B, Ilene Simnowitz was the winner and Vicki Ellin came in second. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The teetimes are noted on the signup sheet in the ladies locker room. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The game on this sunny Aug. 12 was three best net, which seems to be the game of choice for the league. We had 46 hearty souls show up, braving the summer heat. The winners with a score of 195 were Ron Catapano, Frank Kelley, Fred West and Art Pruneau. Second with a 197 were Bob Gray, Tom Morri, and Duke Slayton. Closest to the pin on the par 3s were Mike Madill, Ed Simnowitz, Bill Ellin, and Bill Start.

Spending limit should go The law that establishes a limit on the amount of money Congress can spend is not workable and should be taken off the books. It only creates hours of rancor and arguments that always fail to accomplish their intended purpose. Raising the limit does nothing to curb the spending, so we might just as well let the Congress spend anyhow. Nothing has stopped them heretofore, so why make an ineffective feint about raising the limit every time it is reached? What would help, probably foolish to expect, would be to force the sponsors of spending bills to determine if the cost of the bill and those pending would reach the limit. If one is still in effect, before introducing the measure. If it did, not allow the bill to proceed. But, when they know the limit will only be raised again and again, what do they have to fear? Don Pixley Ocala Choices for AmericaAlthough golf is not my forte (being about an 84 scratch golfer), I love to see excellence wherever it appears (or do excellence, myself, when possible). After watching, and applauding Keegan Bradley win the PGA Championship, as a rookie, in a playoff, I watched 60 Minutes (which I usually dont watch, since its usually a promoter of liberalism and associated underachievement). This time, 60 Minutes was doing something terrible, Im sure, in the eyes of liberals: They were exposing that U.S. government has the highest corporate tax rate in the world! (What happened to Tax breaks for the rich, hollered by the hoards of jealous underachievers? Where are these supposed tax breaks that jealous underachievers and numerous occupants of the moocher class, who hate excellence and applaud underachievement, claim that government thieves are not stealing?) I speculate that all America needs is to reduce the number of moochers in the jealous moocher class, to become again, solvent. So thanks, 60 Minutes for some rare honesty (among mainstream media), letting your puppetry know thats all thats needed for the reemergence of America, is for government to stop stealing so much (Highest corporate tax rate in the Entire World!). And to think that liberals are still crying, tax breaks for the rich. Of course, these jealous fools will never stop that absurd cry, as they drool over what others can do that they not only cannot do, but are so pitiful, they dont even try to do! Time for an end of pandering to the jealous moocher class. If they cant put up, let them shut up! Paul Zeigler Ocala Our government is breaking recordsFor the first time in history, the United States has lost its AAA credit rating and the government has shown its disdain for posterity by ensuring that the next generation of Americans will not live as well as this one, with the exception of the Great Depression of the 1930s. This happened when the federal government failed to meet Standard & Poors expected 4 trillion dollars in spending cuts in the face of an astronomical 14.4 trillion dollars in multi-generational foreign indebtedness. This is the culmination of the apathy of American citizens over many decades of excessive borrowing and spending beyond our means by both major political parties behaving like credit-card addicts on a grand scale. According to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Public Debt, in the past five years alone, the central governments mindless borrowing and wasteful spending doubled the debt from about 8 trillion dollars to our current commitment of over 16 trillion, after the 2.4 trilliondollar increase agreed upon during the debt-ceiling debates. The problem has grown so acute that it has led to the bitter, uncompromising partisan debates over how to keep on borrowing and splurging without destroying the entire economy. One side stubbornly advocated increased taxes and more borrowing in order to continue the ongoing national spending spree while the other side insisted, without compromise, that our national survival depends on shrinking the public debt and the size of government through spending cuts that equal or surpass additional taxation. This, together with the failed Washington policies of the past few years, has shaken the American people awake and given rise to a massive grassroots conservative movement that promises to counter the disasters of the moribund progressive movement, which has been plaguing us since at least the late 19th Century. It does our country no good to lay blame for all of this on conservative activist groups such as the 2-year-old Tea Party, which is akin to throwing bricks at the firefighters who arrive to fight the fire thats consuming your home. The United States of America will prevail as the free Constitutional republic it always has been, despite all the uncertainty, the vicious attacks of our internal adversaries, and the threats of our enemies abroad. We will join hands as one people, neutralize the divisive domestic policies of our own government, renew our power and strength, and regain the respect of all nations around the world.

Pat Apeland won closestFriday, August 19, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com I t is a question that has puzzled humans for eons. How did our world come into being and who or what was responsible for its creation? From humankinds earliest times, there have been attempts to answer this. Ancient peoples believed in many different gods who were responsible for the various natural occurrences. There was a god for thunder, one for rain, one for the sun, another for the moon and so on. When earthquakes, floods, eclipses, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions occurred, these things were attributed to the various gods because people had no scientific knowledge of their workings in the natural world. What people did not understand they feared and attributed to the gods. As history evolved, there were those who gave a more scientific approach to cosmology. Aristotle, the Greek philosopher studied the heavens and its movements and concluded that the earth revolved around the sun. It was Galileo whose telescope literally opened up the heavens, which gave us a concrete view of the heavenly bodies. He reinforced Aristotles idea that the earth revolved around the sun, a heretical view in the 1600s which led to near excommunication from the Catholic church and house arrest. What is known today is that the universe is governed by natural laws, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, floods and the like the contribute to the building up or the wearing down of our planet. According to renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, these natural laws are part of our world, the way things are arranged and that a big explosion, called the Big Bang started our universe. It is his belief that when this explosion occurred, time had not come into being therefore God did not exist and did not create the world. He considers the existence of God as a fairy tale and dismisses any divine intervention in our world. As a Jew, all I can say is oy vey; we have a lot of trouble here. For all his scientific theories, one thing stands very clear to me: who created the laws of nature and who caused the Big Bang? When asked that very question, Dr. Hawking was evasive and could provide no answer. This, to me, seems to be the crux of the problem. I see a creative pattern here, not a haphazard throwing around of stars and lets seewhatwillhappen. There is a harmony and balance in nature which we humans seem to love to disrupt and destroy. I believe in a divine creator because I can wonder at the marvels of Gods handiwork. Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism, sees God as one who works through nature and human beings. It is belief in God, which inspires people to work for justice, equality and mercy. The divine forces, which make for freedom, for example, spur humankind to work for freedom for those in oppressed countries. If one were to follow Dr. Hawkings views, there would be none of this and the spiritual would not enter into the picture at all. Most scientists would agree that faith and science are compatible. I know that when I look at a rainbow, it is the light passing through raindrops acting as a prism that causes the phenomenon but I also like to think of the brit or covenant God made with Noah that a flood would never again destroy the world. Having given birth twice, I can attest to being a partner with God in creation and I see that wonder of creation in the faces of my grandchildren. Belief in a creator gives us the feeling of Gods presence in the world. We are not alienated from one another for we have a conDid God create the Universe?

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... A friend of mine said to me recently, Old boy, hows it feel to be a member of the Overthe-Hill gang? I mumbled something as politely as I could, but on the inside, I was a little furious. I may be getting older, but I definitely am not old! In fact, I plan to get older every day. Once I got my blood pressure under control, I looked into this a little more closely. I am not quite sure I want a membership in such an organization. I checked out the dues and I am not quite sure I am up for it. In order to be a part of this elite group, if elite is the word I want, there are certain dues required of each member. I understand that every organization has its dues, but some dues may not be worth the membership. Here are some dues associated with the Over-theHill gang. First, I must complain about something every day. I know there are most days where it is easy to find a half a dozen things to complain about. But what about those days when everything seems to be going right? What about those days, rare though they may be, when there is nothing to complain about? According to the rules manual, I must find something to complain about every day I get out of bed and the more vehemently I complain the better. This may explain why many members of this infamous Over-the-Hill gang stare into space with a faraway look in their eye. They are trying to find something to complain about. There is a little secret here about the complaining aspect. If I do not remember complaining about something yesterday, I am fully entitled to complain about it today. This, also, may explain why so many people in this membership complain about the same thing every day. The second rule has to do with matters of health. In order to be a part of the Over-the-Hill gang, a member must become proficient in medical sounding terms and words. I use the word sounding, because they do not have to be real medical terms or words; all they have to do is sound like medical terms and words. This is also a reason why many of the members mumble a lot. Everyday I must find something wrong about my health. If I do not have anything wrong with my health, I need to make something up. How are you feeling today, Jake? Im not quite sure, Jake responds, the days early and theres plenty of time for things to go wrong. Personally, I really do not like talking about health issues. For one reason, I do not have any health issues to talk about. There is a question about my being sound in mind but there is no question about my being sound in body. Actually, my body makes more sounds then I am comfortable with, especially in public. I have no health issues to complain about when I am in public. If I suspect someone to be part of the Overthe-Hill gang, I avoid him or her like the plague. I know as soon as I say hello, that will open the floodgates for complaining about health issues. What I hate the most is when somebody goes into great detail in explaining his or her health problems. Im not a doctor. Some things should be kept between the patient and his or her doctor. If another old person, and I say this most respectfully, tells me their surgery was worse than anything their doctor had ever seen in his life, Im going to start complaining for real. To take at face value what some of these old people say, we have some pretty inexperienced doctors in this country. Another membership due is the constant referring to the good old days. I am at the age now when I remember those good old days being referenced. The only good thing about those days is the fact that they are gone. I think when you get old a persons memory filters out negative things and all you can remember is how wonderful those good old days were. The fact being, they were not wonderful then and they are not wonderful now and the only pleasure I get in their regard is the fact that they are long gone. I was at the point of tearing up my membership application to the Over-the-Hill gang when a certain incident happened. I was walking in to a store to get something and I must have looked a little absentminded to the public. I probably was thinking of what I was going to get and if I had enough money to get it. Whatever the case, as I reached for the door, it suddenly opened and a very cheerful voice said, Here, Sir, let me help you with the door. A very lovely young woman stood there holding the door open for Yours Truly. She smiled so sweetly at me and I thanked her and immediately pulled out my application for the Over-the-Hill gang and filled it out. This getting older is going to be great fun. As the Bible says, The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). I am now proud to be a full-fledged member of the Over-the-Hill Gang.The Rev.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com nection to a Higher Being who created us all, the universe included. Science uses empirical methods to derive at answers; religion depends on faith. Science cannot explain everything, therefore some things we take on faith. Some things may always remain a mystery and maybe that is a good thing. History has shown us what can happen when human beings possess too much power. In a popular hymn sung at the end of services, Adon Olam (Lord of the Universe) states in poetic form that God was there before creation. i.e., before time. This hymn was written in the 11th century, years before the Big Bang theory. As Jews approach the High Holiday season starting next month, they will be reminded that Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, also celebrates the birth of the world. For us, and many other people of faith, God created the universe. Amen. Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 A t the August 2 Homeowner Forum, Pat Mershimer, a sixyear resident of Marion Landing, was recognized for her contribution to the community.

He went on to mention that she is member of Patrol and the Search Team, has served on many committees such as Sunshine, Fashion Show, Communicator Collating, and Can Crushing. She is also a bingo caller and helps with Bunko. Pat volunteers at many Tuesday morning socials selling and serving donuts and coffee, and she often can be found playing water volleyball, Pinochle and Hand and Foot.

John added, Thank you for all you do for your community, Pat Mershimer. Intro to Zentangles Youve heard all about it why not try it?

The cost is determined by the size and type of basket you choose to weave, and all supplies are included in the class cost. The result of your one-day project is very rewarding.

A class is offered on the last Wednesday of each month, and residents may sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Wall where the basket of the month and its cost is listed.

We progressed with laid rails and established a network of railroads. These networks were not enough so we improved some highways and eventually built Interstates. Water, land and even air transportation now link people in multiple networks. Individual radio stations united to transmit the same signal. When television developed, stations formed networks to supply viewers with the same programs over greater areas. Cable companies added another dimension to the broadcast networks and now signals are transmitted from satellite. Global networking is common. Networking, once a term related to the fabric industry, became a phrase of the business community and people developed contacts across states, countries, and even continents. Now with the Internet, cell phones and modern media, we have developed social networking to new levels. In this contemporary age of networking, theres still a need to network spiritually with God. While the most basic link has often been abused, neglected and deemed irrelevant, that basic link still exists and still meets the needs of those who desire to be spiritually networked. That basic link is called the church. A gathering of people who meet worship, encourage one another and spiritually connect their lives is as basic as waterways to transportation, a signal for broadcasting, or a profile on a social network. When you discover one of the basic links to growing in faith, in character, and in a relationship with God, you become a part of the spiritual network that unites believers. Its like getting tweets from God! One of those basic units is SonRise Christian Church. We invite you to network with us. Visit our website. Attend one of our services. Discover SonRise as people who learn and live the teachings of Jesus, encourage and nurture personal faith, and network one another to God. www.sonriseccofmarioncounty.org Mark L.

We progressed with laid rails and established a network of railroads. These networks were not enough so we improved some highways and eventually built Interstates. Water, land and even air transportation now link people in multiple networks. Individual radio stations united to transmit the same signal. When television developed, stations formed networks to supply viewers with the same programs over greater areas. Cable companies added another dimension to the broadcast networks and now signals are transmitted from satellite. Global networking is common. Networking, once a term related to the fabric industry, became a phrase of the business community and people developed contacts across states, countries, and even continents. Now with the Internet, cell phones and modern media, we have developed social networking to new levels. In this contemporary age of networking, theres still a need to network spiritually with God. While the most basic link has often been abused, neglected and deemed irrelevant, that basic link still exists and still meets the needs of those who desire to be spiritually networked. That basic link is called the church. A gathering of people who meet worship, encourage one another and spiritually connect their lives is as basic as waterways to transportation, a signal for broadcasting, or a profile on a social network. When you discover one of the basic links to growing in faith, in character, and in a relationship with God, you become a part of the spiritual network that unites believers. Its like getting tweets from God! One of those basic units is SonRise Christian Church. We invite you to network with us. Visit our website. Attend one of our services. Discover SonRise as people who learn and live the teachings of Jesus, encourage and nurture personal faith, and network one another to God. www.sonriseccofmarioncounty.org Mark L.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com nection to a Higher Being who created us all, the universe included. Science uses empirical methods to derive at answers; religion depends on faith. Science cannot explain everything, therefore some things we take on faith. Some things may always remain a mystery and maybe that is a good thing. History has shown us what can happen when human beings possess too much power. In a popular hymn sung at the end of services, Adon Olam (Lord of the Universe) states in poetic form that God was there before creation. i.e., before time. This hymn was written in the 11th century, years before the Big Bang theory. As Jews approach the High Holiday season starting next month, they will be reminded that Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, also celebrates the birth of the world. For us, and many other people of faith, God created the universe. Amen. Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.

Here at Marion Landing, master weaver Sharon Baiardi leads a monthly class on how to create beautiful baskets of your very own. And, yes, you can weave a basket in a day. Sharon is a seasoned professional with over 10 years experience, and she will lead you stepby-step through the basketweaving process. The small class size ensures that each student gets individual guidance and attention. There are many basket designs to choose from, some of which have decorative wooden handles, bases and other embellishments. The cost is determined by the size and type of basket you choose to weave, and all supplies are included in the class cost. The result of your one-day project is very rewarding. Many students are working on holiday gifts for their families and friends, or simply to keep as home dcor. A class is offered on the last Wednesday of each month, and residents may sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Wall where the basket of the month and its cost is listed.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... A friend of mine said to me recently, Old boy, hows it feel to be a member of the Overthe-Hill gang? I mumbled something as politely as I could, but on the inside, I was a little furious. I may be getting older, but I definitely am not old! In fact, I plan to get older every day. Once I got my blood pressure under control, I looked into this a little more closely. I am not quite sure I want a membership in such an organization. I checked out the dues and I am not quite sure I am up for it. In order to be a part of this elite group, if elite is the word I want, there are certain dues required of each member. I understand that every organization has its dues, but some dues may not be worth the membership. Here are some dues associated with the Over-theHill gang. First, I must complain about something every day. I know there are most days where it is easy to find a half a dozen things to complain about. But what about those days when everything seems to be going right? What about those days, rare though they may be, when there is nothing to complain about? According to the rules manual, I must find something to complain about every day I get out of bed and the more vehemently I complain the better. This may explain why many members of this infamous Over-the-Hill gang stare into space with a faraway look in their eye. They are trying to find something to complain about. There is a little secret here about the complaining aspect. If I do not remember complaining about something yesterday, I am fully entitled to complain about it today. This, also, may explain why so many people in this membership complain about the same thing every day. The second rule has to do with matters of health. In order to be a part of the Over-the-Hill gang, a member must become proficient in medical sounding terms and words. I use the word sounding, because they do not have to be real medical terms or words; all they have to do is sound like medical terms and words. This is also a reason why many of the members mumble a lot. Everyday I must find something wrong about my health. If I do not have anything wrong with my health, I need to make something up. How are you feeling today, Jake? Im not quite sure, Jake responds, the days early and theres plenty of time for things to go wrong. Personally, I really do not like talking about health issues. For one reason, I do not have any health issues to talk about. There is a question about my being sound in mind but there is no question about my being sound in body. Actually, my body makes more sounds then I am comfortable with, especially in public. I have no health issues to complain about when I am in public. If I suspect someone to be part of the Overthe-Hill gang, I avoid him or her like the plague. I know as soon as I say hello, that will open the floodgates for complaining about health issues. What I hate the most is when somebody goes into great detail in explaining his or her health problems. Im not a doctor. Some things should be kept between the patient and his or her doctor. If another old person, and I say this most respectfully, tells me their surgery was worse than anything their doctor had ever seen in his life, Im going to start complaining for real. To take at face value what some of these old people say, we have some pretty inexperienced doctors in this country. Another membership due is the constant referring to the good old days. I am at the age now when I remember those good old days being referenced. The only good thing about those days is the fact that they are gone. I think when you get old a persons memory filters out negative things and all you can remember is how wonderful those good old days were. The fact being, they were not wonderful then and they are not wonderful now and the only pleasure I get in their regard is the fact that they are long gone. I was at the point of tearing up my membership application to the Over-the-Hill gang when a certain incident happened. I was walking in to a store to get something and I must have looked a little absentminded to the public. I probably was thinking of what I was going to get and if I had enough money to get it. Whatever the case, as I reached for the door, it suddenly opened and a very cheerful voice said, Here, Sir, let me help you with the door. A very lovely young woman stood there holding the door open for Yours Truly. She smiled so sweetly at me and I thanked her and immediately pulled out my application for the Over-the-Hill gang and filled it out. This getting older is going to be great fun.

Pat Apeland won closestFriday, August 19, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com I t is a question that has puzzled humans for eons. How did our world come into being and who or what was responsible for its creation? From humankinds earliest times, there have been attempts to answer this. Ancient peoples believed in many different gods who were responsible for the various natural occurrences. There was a god for thunder, one for rain, one for the sun, another for the moon and so on. When earthquakes, floods, eclipses, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions occurred, these things were attributed to the various gods because people had no scientific knowledge of their workings in the natural world. What people did not understand they feared and attributed to the gods. As history evolved, there were those who gave a more scientific approach to cosmology. Aristotle, the Greek philosopher studied the heavens and its movements and concluded that the earth revolved around the sun. It was Galileo whose telescope literally opened up the heavens, which gave us a concrete view of the heavenly bodies. He reinforced Aristotles idea that the earth revolved around the sun, a heretical view in the 1600s which led to near excommunication from the Catholic church and house arrest. What is known today is that the universe is governed by natural laws, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, floods and the like the contribute to the building up or the wearing down of our planet. According to renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, these natural laws are part of our world, the way things are arranged and that a big explosion, called the Big Bang started our universe. It is his belief that when this explosion occurred, time had not come into being therefore God did not exist and did not create the world. He considers the existence of God as a fairy tale and dismisses any divine intervention in our world. As a Jew, all I can say is oy vey; we have a lot of trouble here. For all his scientific theories, one thing stands very clear to me: who created the laws of nature and who caused the Big Bang? When asked that very question, Dr. Hawking was evasive and could provide no answer. This, to me, seems to be the crux of the problem. I see a creative pattern here, not a haphazard throwing around of stars and lets seewhatwillhappen. There is a harmony and balance in nature which we humans seem to love to disrupt and destroy. I believe in a divine creator because I can wonder at the marvels of Gods handiwork. Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism, sees God as one who works through nature and human beings. It is belief in God, which inspires people to work for justice, equality and mercy. The divine forces, which make for freedom, for example, spur humankind to work for freedom for those in oppressed countries. If one were to follow Dr. Hawkings views, there would be none of this and the spiritual would not enter into the picture at all. Most scientists would agree that faith and science are compatible. I know that when I look at a rainbow, it is the light passing through raindrops acting as a prism that causes the phenomenon but I also like to think of the brit or covenant God made with Noah that a flood would never again destroy the world. Having given birth twice, I can attest to being a partner with God in creation and I see that wonder of creation in the faces of my grandchildren. Belief in a creator gives us the feeling of Gods presence in the world. We are not alienated from one another for we have a conDid God create the Universe?

Spending limit should go The law that establishes a limit on the amount of money Congress can spend is not workable and should be taken off the books. It only creates hours of rancor and arguments that always fail to accomplish their intended purpose. Raising the limit does nothing to curb the spending, so we might just as well let the Congress spend anyhow. Nothing has stopped them heretofore, so why make an ineffective feint about raising the limit every time it is reached? What would help, probably foolish to expect, would be to force the sponsors of spending bills to determine if the cost of the bill and those pending would reach the limit. If one is still in effect, before introducing the measure. If it did, not allow the bill to proceed. But, when they know the limit will only be raised again and again, what do they have to fear? Don Pixley Ocala Choices for AmericaAlthough golf is not my forte (being about an 84 scratch golfer), I love to see excellence wherever it appears (or do excellence, myself, when possible). After watching, and applauding Keegan Bradley win the PGA Championship, as a rookie, in a playoff, I watched 60 Minutes (which I usually dont watch, since its usually a promoter of liberalism and associated underachievement). This time, 60 Minutes was doing something terrible, Im sure, in the eyes of liberals: They were exposing that U.S. government has the highest corporate tax rate in the world! (What happened to Tax breaks for the rich, hollered by the hoards of jealous underachievers? Where are these supposed tax breaks that jealous underachievers and numerous occupants of the moocher class, who hate excellence and applaud underachievement, claim that government thieves are not stealing?) I speculate that all America needs is to reduce the number of moochers in the jealous moocher class, to become again, solvent. So thanks, 60 Minutes for some rare honesty (among mainstream media), letting your puppetry know thats all thats needed for the reemergence of America, is for government to stop stealing so much (Highest corporate tax rate in the Entire World!). And to think that liberals are still crying, tax breaks for the rich. Of course, these jealous fools will never stop that absurd cry, as they drool over what others can do that they not only cannot do, but are so pitiful, they dont even try to do! Time for an end of pandering to the jealous moocher class. If they cant put up, let them shut up! Paul Zeigler Ocala Our government is breaking recordsFor the first time in history, the United States has lost its AAA credit rating and the government has shown its disdain for posterity by ensuring that the next generation of Americans will not live as well as this one, with the exception of the Great Depression of the 1930s. This happened when the federal government failed to meet Standard & Poors expected 4 trillion dollars in spending cuts in the face of an astronomical 14.4 trillion dollars in multi-generational foreign indebtedness. This is the culmination of the apathy of American citizens over many decades of excessive borrowing and spending beyond our means by both major political parties behaving like credit-card addicts on a grand scale. According to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Public Debt, in the past five years alone, the central governments mindless borrowing and wasteful spending doubled the debt from about 8 trillion dollars to our current commitment of over 16 trillion, after the 2.4 trilliondollar increase agreed upon during the debt-ceiling debates. The problem has grown so acute that it has led to the bitter, uncompromising partisan debates over how to keep on borrowing and splurging without destroying the entire economy. One side stubbornly advocated increased taxes and more borrowing in order to continue the ongoing national spending spree while the other side insisted, without compromise, that our national survival depends on shrinking the public debt and the size of government through spending cuts that equal or surpass additional taxation. This, together with the failed Washington policies of the past few years, has shaken the American people awake and given rise to a massive grassroots conservative movement that promises to counter the disasters of the moribund progressive movement, which has been plaguing us since at least the late 19th Century. It does our country no good to lay blame for all of this on conservative activist groups such as the 2-year-old Tea Party, which is akin to throwing bricks at the firefighters who arrive to fight the fire thats consuming your home. The United States of America will prevail as the free Constitutional republic it always has been, despite all the uncertainty, the vicious attacks of our internal adversaries, and the threats of our enemies abroad. We will join hands as one people, neutralize the divisive domestic policies of our own government, renew our power and strength, and regain the respect of all nations around the world.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in T he mission of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is to provide nonpartisan analyses of government proposals, as well as information and estimates for the Congressional budget process. The CBO has been very busy lately, after two and a half years during which Congress and the White House were doing unlimited spending and not bothering with fussy budgets. CBO takes no political positions. Simply stated, CBO calls em as it sees em. They make every effort to maintain their reputation for impartiality. CBO is not an umpire, not a score keeper, not even a statistician. Congress has other agencies that perform those functions, such as the General Accounting Office and the Congressional Research Services. Give the CBO a set of taxspend-and-borrow numbers, and their computers will project consequences based on current law and practices. Therein lies a problem not caused by CBO. Current law and practices are subject to interpretation and twisting in the ever-shifting winds of political power and bureaucratic convenience. Some news people and politicians have expressed concern that the accuracy of CBOs past projections are not the right information on which to be making budget, debt and deficit decisions. A reasonable response is to ask where else we might find impartial assessments of the latest lunacies to emerge from Congress and the White House? CBO has indeed projected deficits and surpluses which never happened. Their projections were accurate in the moment in which they were issued. But as soon as the numbers were belched out of the CBO computers, Congress, the White House, and numerous federal bureaucracies began making changes. CBO is not a crystal-ball agency. Their projections are like trip-ticks from AAA. CBO says: If you go down the road outlined in the numbers you gave us, heres where youre likely to end up. They should add Air bags and seatbelts recommended. Criticism of the long-range accuracy of CBO numbers is the latest rationale for not making what big spenders call sudden and unwise policy changes. Translation: The debt and deficit legislation passed recently by Congress and signed by the president should have been put off until they had more information in other words until after the next election, indefinitely, or never, whichever comes last. In the meantime argue the critics, whats needed are new budget priorities, new tax revenue, new investments toward economic growth in the future more taxes, more borrowing, and more spending. More spending has been tried already, nine trillion dollars in bailouts, most of which went into the stock market, not job creation, and eight hundred billion in stimulus money which saved a lot of public and union employees, but it didnt create any new jobs. The mantra well hear for the foreseeable future is Dont pay attention to those scary numbers out of the CBO computers. Trust us until after the next election and well make all things right in the here and hereafter. Our response is not Amen. Its BS (meaning more baloney stuffing). www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 T he last couple of weeks in Marion County, we had our own little version of CSI, Law and Order, Covert Affairs, NCIS and whatever other cop show you watch all thrown into one. The occasion was the tragic deaths of four people in one house in the Northwest area. Two women and two children were found in a burning house on Aug. 5, and it was soon discovered that all four had been shot before the fire. After a few days, deputies arrested the boyfriend of one of the victims and accused him of four homicides and one case of arson. He was booked into the county jail. The arrest affidavit showed some bizarre events, all of which were worthy of a TV plot. First, the boyfriend said he was in two other locations about the time of the murder. But he met with a friend and apparently asked him about cell phones being used to trace his whereabouts. That friend eventually went to deputies, and the Sheriffs Office obliged by checking cell phone records, and they allegedly showed that he was in the area of the deaths at the time of the fire. So the next time one of the people on the TV shows gets on a computer and checks cell phone records, guess what? It can be real. The suspect allegedly told the friend he was high on pot laced with other drugs, and said it all felt like he was playing a video game, according to the affidavit. All the TV stations really jumped on that phrase. The Sheriffs Office got the informant to wear a wire, and sure enough, the suspect allegedly made more incriminating statements on record, and eventually he was arrested. There was another little subplot. Anyone who watches these cop shows will tell you that officials always look to family members first in a case like this, but the father of the two little children had a rock solid alibi he was in jail on a DUI charge. What made this even worse was that there were witnesses children in a truck in which one of the victims arrived. One told deputies they saw a flash, heard a bang and saw their mother fall and get dragged inside the house. Can you imagine the trauma those young people went through? Neighbors pulled them out of the truck during the subsequent fire. The bottom line is that our local Sheriffs Office, confronted with a major crime that can test the emotions as well as the investigative capabilities, made an arrest within a few days. Im sure it took a lot of man hours to get evidence against a suspect, and it isnt over. As of this writing on Friday, theyre still looking for the gun, and a reward has been offered for information leading to the weapons recovery. Now comes the long, drawnout part, as the case works its way through the court system. On TV, its all done in one or two hours. But in real life, it takes a lot more effort and hard work to prove a case. Law enforcement officials should be praised for what theyve done in this gruesome crime.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

O nce again those big yellow buses are ready to travel the highways and byways of Marion County, taking children to and from school. Classes for public school students begin on Monday, Aug. 22. Some private schools, including big ones such as Trinity Catholic High School and Blessed Trinity Elementary School, have already started. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1.If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2.If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3.If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4.However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. You can also save yourself some time and money in the process. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

I n 1988 Congress, by a House Joint Resolution, designated this coming Sunday, Aug. 21, to be National Senior Citizens Day. President Reagan then issued a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. Of course, appropriate activities for Pun Alley are some senior stories. Senile? A couple, married as childhood sweethearts 60 years ago, had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. On their anniversary they walked back to their old school and reminisced about their teen romance. On their walk back home a bag of money fell out of an armored car. Sally quickly picked it up and they took it home. Andy said, Weve got to give it back. Sally said, Finders keepers. She hid the moneybag in the attic. The next day, two policemen were looking for the money and knocked on their door. Pardon me, but you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday? Sally said, No. Andy said, Shes lying. She hid it up in the attic. Sally said, Dont believe him; hes getting senile. The policemen turned to Andy and began to question him. One said, Tell us the story from the beginning. Andy said, Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday... The first officer turned to his partner and said, Were outta here! Finally qualified The department store clerk approached the personnel manager with some hesitation and said, I think I will retire soon. My doctor told me that my hearing is going fast and I know I dont hear many of the customers. The manager replied, Please stay. Youre now qualified for the compliant department. Senior moments An archaeologist is the best husband any lady can have. The older she gets, the more interested he is in her. Youre over the hill when your back goes out more than you do. Its not true that women change their minds frequently. Ask one her age and she will tell you the same answer for several years. Growing older is merely a matter of feeling your corns rather than feeling your oats. Im not getting old. My mirror is just getting wrinkled. A mans life is 20 years of having his mother ask him where he is going, 40 years of having his wife ask the same question and, at the end, having the mourners wondering too. If youre yearning for the good old days, just turn off the air conditioning. The age of some women is like the odometer on a used car; you know its set back, but you dont know how far. Aging is the only available way to live a long time. Seniors shouldnt eat health foods. They need all the preservatives they can get. Dont complain about growing old; many people dont have that privilege. One nice thing about being old. As the noise level goes up, your hearing goes down. Pulling his leg On examining a senior, the doctor said, that pain in your leg is caused by old age. The senior replied, dont be silly. My other leg is the same age and it doesnt hurt at all. When? An irate customer called the newspaper office and loudly demanded, Where Is my Sunday paper? Maam, said the newspaper employee, Today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on Sunday. There was quite a long pause on the other end of the line, followed by a sense of recognition as she muttered, Well, so thats why no one was at church today. Hairy decision Two elderly ladies were discussing the upcoming dance at the country club. Were supposed to wear something that matches our husbands hair, so Im wearing black, said Mrs. Smith. Oh my, said Mrs. Jones, Id better not go. Which way? The elderly woman at the nursing home received a visit from a church member. How are you feeling? the visitor asked. Oh, said the lady, Im just worried sick! What are you worried about, dear? her friend asked. The lady slowly explained her major worry, Every close friend I ever had has already died and gone on to heaven. Im afraid theyre all wondering where I went. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in R eaders looking for a cinematic plot that is convoluted all the way to the end and with twists and turns and speed will find it in Hells Corner. On the other hand, the same high intensity will cause reader fatigue for some, particularly with the myriad characters Baldacci serves up. The title comes from the security peculiarities about Lafayette Park, just across from the White House. The protagonist, Oliver Stone, explains: This is Hells Corner. Pennsylvania Avenue, the actual street, belongs to the D.C. metro cops. The sidewalks around Lafayette Park are the Secret Services turf and the park itself comes under the jurisdiction of the Park Police. Secret Service agents are actually taught to grab a person of interest from the street or park, carry him to the sidewalk and then arrest him there to prevent a pissing contest over jurisdiction. This sets the scene for the triggering event one night when the British PM was scheduled to stroll across the park to Blair House. A turned ankle in the White House changed all that. Nevertheless, shortly after dark a bomb explodes in the park and then gunfire erupts from a number of other places around the park. Stone was supposed to be on assignment out of the country but his orders are immediately changed. He and his team must now scour videos to determine who was in the park on the night in question. Four unlikely suspects appear in the videos: a woman in black slacks on a bench who seemed to be dozing, an overweight jogger, and a man in a suit carrying a briefcase and paying inordinate attention to a statue of German army officer Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben; and, finally, a ganger sort in prison shuffle jeans. Helping Stone run down the list are members of the Camel Club, familiar to Baldacci fans, and a few new characters like British Mary Chapman to round out the cast. Heightening suspense is the readers growing awareness that team members are withholding vital info from each other. Recommended mostly for those already Baldacci fans.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com A nyone looking for a loving feline companion need look no further than Kitty, the handsome fellow pictured here. Kitty was rescued last month by a Good Samaritan truck driver passing through town and is now thriving in foster care. Hes about 10 years old, neutered, declawed and current on shots. Sweet Kitty is calm and friendly and gets along with other cats as well as dogs that dont bark too much. If you want to add him to a multi-animal household, that should work out just fine. If you want to have him all to yourself hed be happy to be your one and only. So if you want him to beat the odds once again, help him find his forever home by calling the SPCA at 352362-0985. Our first Animal Center dog of the month is Gracie the pit bull mix puppy. At only three months old, Gracie was found as a stray wandering around by Animal Control. Shes described as very loving but active what puppy isnt and only 13 lbs. at this point. If you want a different look to your dog, Gracie also fits that bill. She has a unique face because of her clear gray eyes, and you can gaze at them adoringly as you start to train and bond with her. If youre looking for a happy puppy that likes to follow you around and stay by your side, give the Animal Center a call today at 352-6718700 and youll soon be saying Goodnight Gracie If you would like a young adult dog for your family dog, but not a puppy, then Blaze the 4 year old Chihuahua mix could be the boy for you. Blaze also has a unique look, with a wire haired face that looks a bit like a German shepherd and a Chihuahua style body. At 30 lbs. full grown, hes a great size for any type of household. Poor Blaze was turned over to the Animal Center when his owner couldnt take care of his dogs any longer. The other dogs, all puppies, found new homes right away. No one wanted the unusual looking Blaze and now its your chance to add some spice to your life with this adorable pal. Youll have tons of fun playing outside together and youll never misplace him at the dog park among the usual Shih Tzus and lab mixes. Gracies ID number is A051462 and Blazes is A042686. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at 352-671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. Dog Days of Summer Weve had a very hot and humid summer this year and this weather could continue through September, at least. Too many dogs are still left out in wire crates in the back yard sun or in cars. If dogs need to be outside in the summer (preferably they should be indoors in air conditioning), they need a place with cold water and shade where they can escape the blazing sun when they need to. If you see a dog in distress, please try to let their owner know and give them a chance to remedy the situation. If they dont, call Animal Control who Heres a lovely feline companion, just for you P AWS AND CLAWS M D Maria Devine This is Kitty.

Also, it is against the law in Florida to leave an animal in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open. Dont take your pet on errands unless you can bring them in to the store with you. Just a bit of time in a hot car is torture for them even if it doesnt kill them. So leave them home in comfort instead. We say this every year, but every year these practices continue. So sad. S P CA N ews The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities.

Friday, August 19, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T O A D V E R T I S E H E R E C A L L T O M O R S U S I E A T 8 5 4 3 9 8 6 4 ~ Friday, August 19, 2011 www.smcitizen.com A lthough your air conditioner is supposed to keep you cool, your summer electric bills for the cost of running that air conditioner just might make you break out in a nervous sweat. The good news is that with the following tips from UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, you can beat the heat and cool down your electric bills. Factors out of your control, such as temperature, solar radiation and relative humidity determine how much heat is available to enter your home. Safeguarding your home against this heat reduces how hard your air conditioning unit has to work to efficiently cool your home. And the less your air conditioner works, the less you pay in electric bills each month. Bolster your heat-resistant bulwarks If heat is the enemy and your home is your air conditioned castle, insulation is one of the best ways to bolster the bulwarks and stop heat flow into your home. Insulation is graded using R-values that measure thermal resistance. The higher the Rvalue, the better the insulation resists the transfer of heat. Though fully replacing your insulation often isnt practical, adding insulation to your attic is an easier option. Insulating your attic to the recommended value of R-30 is relatively inexpensive and helps prevent up to 140-degree attic air from flowing into your home. If your attic already has insulation, ensure theres enough to adequately protect your home from the hot temperatures outside. To reach R-30, you should have one of the following: Nine inches of fiberglass batting insulation. Nine inches of blown-in cellulose insulation. Twelve inches of blownin fiberglass or Rockwool insulation. Spray foam insulation varies. Contact a local insulation contractor. Visit www.energystar.gov for more information on tax credits that can help with the cost of adding attic insulation. Your energy provider may also provide incentives. Help your air conditioner run efficiently If you already have adequate insulation, try these other simple steps that directly influence how efficiently your air conditioner runs. Check your air filter once a month during peak season (now). Dirty air filters make your air conditioner work harder to move the same amount of air, so replace as needed. Dont let debris build up around your outside air compressor. Leaves and other debris make it more difficult for the compressor to operate efficiently. Have a local HVAC contractor check your ductwork. Holes or tears will let cool air escape into your attic or crawlspaces, making your air conditioner work harder to cool down your living space. Set your thermostat for 78 degrees. Every degree below 78 degrees can equate to an eight percent increase in your monthly cooling cost. Purchase a programmable thermostat and set it for a warmer temperature when youre not home. Caulk and weather-strip around doors and windows. This helps create an air tight building envelope.

The Marie Mastrioanni memorial tournament was held on July 28. Following golf, a delicious spread of homemade goodies was provided by members. Fund raising events that day included the raffle, mulligans, pay the pro for hitting drives, and for the cash bar. Dancing tunes were loaded on Kelli Brunners IPOD because Marie loved to dance. Since the nine-hole league supported the raffle, they were invited to the community center for refreshments. Marie was an avid golfer, sang karaoke, danced up a storm. A member of the 18hole CHLGA, she is fondly remembered by her friends and neighbors. She passed away a year ago and te league wanted to celebrate her life. Thats why the golfers rallied to raise money for Hospice of Marion County. It helps so many people during their decline. Gail Banavige shares her memory of Marie. How can I describe Marie, Gail wrote. Outgoing, fun, full of the devil and one of the nicest ladies I have ever known. They met golfing when Gail first joined the 18-hole league and Marie took her under her wing. She invited Gail and her husband, John, to join her and Roger at the Arbor Club. A close friendship was born. Dancing, wine, golf, family and friends were what Marie was all about, with a bit of mischief thrown in, said Gail. She was always ready to have fun and wanted everyone else to have just as much fun. She was the first one to try to make a new person to the area feel welcome and at home. Joan Gustafson remembers Marie for always including everyone in the group. She was always smiling and laughing and enjoying hers, which made you feel good. Marie was always very welcoming and I never saw her without a smile, said Heddy Racinowski. She was the first person, who encouraged me to join the CHLGA. 18-Hole CHLGA Winners Two Best Balls of Three August 11 1st place: 127 Kelli Brunner, Piper Thomas, Blind Draw 2nd place: 131 Connie Norris, Andrea Fratarangelo, Betty Weiner Stableford August 4 1st flight: 44-Su Freeman; Tie at 38-Iro Lisinski and Connie Norris 2nd flight: 40-Betty Dong; 37-Patty Ware 3rd flight: 43-Piper Thomas; 38-Marge Cowie One Best Ball of Three July 28 55-Su Freeman, Irmgard Anger, Heddy Racinowski 55-Joan DAddio, Gina Bulloch, Donna Sauer 55-Kelli Brunner, Marge Cowie, Joan Gustafson Crisscross (best of nine holes) July 21 1st flight: 26-Connie Norris; 28-Su Freeman; 30 Iro Lisinski; 30-Tona Scheibal 2nd flight: 27-Toni Stevenson; 28-Judy McGrath; 29-Andrea Fratarangelo; 3rd flight: 25-Piper Thomas; 27-Joan Gustafson; 28-Marge Cowie Shamble July 14 111-Mia Kolar, Barb Masaschi, Mary Pat Giffin. 112-Iro Lisinski, Patty Ware, Carol Clark 114-Kelli Brunner, Gail Banavige, Marge Cowie.

The teams of probation and law enforcement officers targeted probationers with violent and sex offenses. Additionally, probationers that were suspected to be involved with drugs or gangs were also targeted. The teams visited the homes of these violent felons and conducted walk throughs of their residences to ensure that they are complying with their conditions of probation. The Departments mission is public safety, and by working side-by-side with other law enforcement in these sweeps, we play an integral part in keeping our streets safe from weapons, drugs and offenders who refuse to abide by the law, said Department of Corrections Secretary Ed Buss. This operation resulted in the seizure of 24 weapons, assorted types of narcotics (one gram of Cocaine, 9.5 grams of crack cocaine, 1.04 pounds of Marijuana, 1.76 pounds of Methamphetamine, seven prescription medications (eight Xanax, three Hydrocodone, 13 Seroquel pills, one Suboxone pill, four Oxycodone, one Aviane, and 18 Prozac) and assorted drug paraphernalia. The law enforcement teams knocked on the doors of more than 703 offenders. In addition, 58 probationary offenders were taken into custody for criminal violations discovered during the sweep, and 23 non-probation offenders were also arrested, totaling 81 physical arrests and 94 criminal charges. As a result of this operation, there were four gangrelated arrests. Additional arrests may occur over the next several days based on information gained during the sweep.

A driver involved in a minor accident near Majestic Oaks the afternoon of Aug. 14 was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, both misdemeanors, and DUI with property damage, according to jail records. According to the report, Tarae Tarrell Massey, 19, of Southwest 100th Lane, was seen putting drugs in his pants pocket. A search of him and the car produced the marijuana and a jar called a chopper, which is used to cut marijuana into small pieces. According to the report, while en route to the jail, the defendant began spontaneously saying he did not understand why he was being arrested as marijuana is a natural substance that comes from the earth, and he sees no problem with smoking it and will continue to do so. The defendant also in a spontaneous outburst stated he has been smoking marijuana for five years, and it has not affected him at all as he is in college. A man seen driving down the road and failing to stay in a single lane was arrested for driving while his license was suspended or revoked. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Harold Odell Skipper, 66, of Southwest 80th Street, Dunnellon, was seen driving on Southwest 129 Terrace Road at 3:20 a.m. on Aug. 10. As the deputy followed the vehicle, it began weaving from side to side failing to maintain a lane, according to the report. A computer check on the Skipper showed his license was permanently revoked on June 13, 1990, for DUI. He was taken to jail, and released the same day under $10,000 bond. A 28-year-old Ocala man was arrested for DUI after he was stopped on State Road 200 for failing to stay within a single lane. A deputy spotted the vehicle about 2 a.m. on Aug. 14 and pulled him over. William Torres of Southwest 128th Loop reportedly failed the field sobriety test and was taken to jail, where his breath allegedly registered .111 and .121.

PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK Probation Officers in 11 counties along with 45 law enforcement agencies working together in a joint operation made surprise face-to-face contact with hundreds of probationers including gang members, sex offenders, and violent felons during the evening hours of Tuesday, Aug. 16. As a result, 58 offenders were arrested, 24 weapons were taken off the streets, one Methamphetamine lab dismantled and 1.75 pounds of Methamphetamine seized. The 11 counties that participated in the operation are part of the Community Justice Coalition, which began as a threecounty initiative in 2007. There have been 12 previous operations resulting in numerous arrests and the removal of weapons and drugs from the hands of convicted felons on probation. Law enforcement agencies from Brevard, Indian River, Lake, Marion, Martin, Orange, Osceola, Polk, St. Lucie, Seminole, and Volusia counties were involved in Tuesdays operation. In Marion County there were 7 law enforcement teams involved, 28 offender contacts, 5 offender arrests, 3 non-offender arrests.

Piper Thomas and Connie Norris sold tickets during July on league day for the 50/50 drawing to raise money to support this worthy cause. And, several women, who won were generous enough to give part of their winnings back for Hospice.

With the sluggish economy, only 90 newly hired teachers started their Marion County teaching careers last week with New Teacher Orientation at Forest High School. Just four years ago, that number topped 400. This Monday, another 2,900-plus returning teachers headed back to their classrooms in Marion Countys 49 public schools. Meantime, a projected 41,540 students are expected on the first day of school come Monday, Aug. 22. This is 332 fewer students than last years peak attendance. The new school years shaping up for Marion County Public Schools as the district deals with issues like cutting budgets, maintaining class size limits, and meeting higher academic standards and unfunded mandates. Parents can ease their frustrations and avoid long waiting lines by registering their children before school starts. This includes kindergarten students, who will stagger start their first days, meaning theyll attend just one day of class during the first few days of school, lowering the student-teacher ratio dramatically to enhance the transition into school. Monday is back-to-class day in Marion Countys schools PLEASESEESCHOOLS PAGE3
