Road construction for the Southwest 42nd Street Flyover project will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 6, and continue for approximately 495 days. Motorists could experience lane closures and minor delays during the construction period. The new, four-lane divided roadway will connect Southwest 27th Avenue (at Southwest 42nd Street) to State Road 200 (at Southwest 40th Avenue). The roadway will include a bridge over Interstate 75, easing traffic congestion through current major thoroughfares. The Reddick-based Commercial Industrial Corp. is managing the $11.9 million project and will maintain proper signage and barricades. The project is anticipated to employ approximately 40 local workers. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes when possible. Adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances may affect construction schedules. Work to begin on extension, flyover PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKBack-to-school bash Ocala West United Methodist Church entertained many children last Saturday with a back-to-school bash at the facility. Above, magician Greg Solomon gets some help with his magic tricks from Isabella Smith. Bottom left, a pair of parents, Jay Glenn and Josh Robertson, help out Solomon. Bottom right, clowns Mike Roppel, Paula Megan and Dotty Baird get ready to host the children, who came in to their room after the magic show. The movie is built around golf, but its about life, from despair into a journey to deep faith. Members of area churches are organizing groups to attend Seven Days in Utopia www.sevendaysinutopia.com at the Marion Theatre when it begins its showing on Sept. 2. Mike McGinnis, member of First Baptist Church of Ocala, and former golf instructor at the College of Central Florida, said his Sunday school class has talked about the book. According to McGinnis, the book and movie have a great message about golf and life, and he encourages everyone to see it. Mark Cummins, pastor of the Church of Hope, has seen the movie. He notes that it has a message of hope, in the tension of broken relationships, leading to the discovery of the purposes and plans that God has for the central characters life. Cummins observes that in the movie the message comes forth that God engages us outside of church, in all the various realms of our lives. The movie has a special meaning for a group of Ocalans who plan to attend the Marion Theatre premier because of its ties to Ocala. Aeronautical engineer/entrepreneur and longtime Ocala resident Sandy Reese, who died Friday, Aug. 12, had a direct connection with the movie and its producer/author David Cook. The two men became business partners in Reeso Putters www.reesoputters.com which Reese designed and engineered. The face-on putters are featured in the movie.

Santos VFW Post 4781 will host a program for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. It will be held at the Post hall at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. In 2009 Congress designated 9/11 as a Day of Remembrance and Service. Families of the victims of the attack have started several organizations to honor their loved ones. Allisandra Kellerman started Hometown Hugs. This group sends packages to our men and women in the Armed Forces. In Belleview we have our own group Operation Shoebox. Under the leadership of Mary Harper, this group of dedicated volunteers sends approximately 2,000 packages every month to our military personnel throughout the world. Our Auxiliary has supported this organization by sewing cloth bags, making Christmas stockings, and donating items to be included in their packages. In addition, we give monetary assistance to help with the postage. Our Veterans Family Services Chairperson, Marty Brehm, has a request for our members and the entire community. She wants you to write a thank you card, a thinking of you card, a note, or a letter for our service people. She will deliver this correspondence to Operation Shoebox headquarters. They will put a card in each of the packages they ship in the coming months. We want our soldiers to know that we support them, stand behind them, and appreciate the sacrifices they make every day. You can bring your mail to the 9/11 program, or drop them off at the Post. There will be a box in the canteen marked Mail for the Military. Marty has a goal of 500 pieces of mail! We are depending on all of you to help us reach our goal. Get your family friends and neighbors, to help us make this a great project.

Community calendar Ocala native and Emmy winner Buddy Martin will host a three-hour local radio show in afternoon drive-time beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6 on WOCA AM1370 and FM 96.7. The Voice of Ocala will be heard Monday-Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and will feature local guests and local issues, as well as state, regional and national news, sports and interviews that impact Ocala. One hour will be devoted to Ocala lifestyle, with topics everything from health, education, crime and police protection, food, fashion and design, arts and entertainment, nostalgia, history, books, travel, charity, religion, etc. Page One will deal with the news of the day, as well as stories behind the news, interviews with the newsmakers, weather, business, quirky stories, how government works and call-ins. Buddy Martins Sports Page will feature an hour of interviews, news and caller participation daily. Since the program is called The Voice of Ocala, Martin said the show would continue to evolve. Much of the content will be derived from a consensus of what the Ocala audience wants to hear, he said. I am really excited about getting the chance to talk about my community and with the people who have worked diligently to make Ocala one of the great places in America to live, said Martin, a third-generation Ocalan. Ive lived all over the country and have come to realize late in life that Ocala is such a special place that we need to tell the world about it as well as reminding ourselves each day how lucky we are to live here. The beauty and natural resources of this area are second to none. And Im going to make it my business to lead discussions about that. Thus the title of the show, he said. So the real Voice of Ocala is not me Im just the conduit. The real voice comes from the people who are so fortunate to be living here. Martin is an Emmy winner (including an Emmy while working on The NFL Today at CBS-TV Sports), author of seven books, and sports columnist/radio/TV personality who has built a national reputation as one of the media industrys most recognizable names. While working at the Denver Post, New York Daily News, St. Petersburg Times, the distinguished journalist won more than 170 state and national awards as an editor, writer and TV producer. Most recently Martin received the first Wilton F. Martin Communicator of the Year Award from the Florida Public Relations Association Ocala Chapter. The award was named after Buddys late father, co-founder of the state association. Buddy is heavily involved in the community as co-founder of the Save The Marion Theater group which has helped the City of Ocala turn around the fate of the historic, 71-year-old movie house that has operated at a profit since May. While working at Florida Today, Gannett News Service and Charlotte Sun, among the awards he or his newspaper claimed were best national Best Lifestyle Section (Penny-Missouri), Best Sunday Sports Section nationally (APSE), Best Feature Writer New York State (Associated Press) and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in breaking news (2005). He has been named best columnist or sports columnist in Florida for both magazines and newspapers six times. Martin is also author of the authorized biography of Florida football coach Urban Meyer, Urbans Way, which is out in paperback (St. Martins Press). He also wrote Terrys Bradshaws autobiography, Looking Deep. Buddy was co-creator of the Sports Journalism Summit at Poynter Media Institute in St. Petersburg, where he has been both a panelist and co-director of programs. Martin graduated from Ocala High School and was schooled in journalism department at the University of Florida, where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity and earned a letter playing Gator baseball. He lives in Ocala with his longtime wife Joni. They have two daughters (Lori Gregory of Ocala and Rebecca Doubek of Wyomissing, PA); one son (Brenden Martin of Ocala) and three grandchildren.

Friday, September 2, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T he difficulty among the House, Senate, and president in reaching a debt and deficit agreement for the coming fiscal year was that they were discussing fictional numbers as if they were real. For decades federal budgeting and spending has been designed to obscure the ambitions and intentions of Washington politicians and bureaucrats. Its called baseline budgeting. The object is to give the impression that legislators are providing more services without voting for more spending. Congress and the White House use the high-sounding hocuspocus of baseline budgeting to explain the taxing, spending, and borrowing process. Baseline budgeting begins with a conviction that every federal dollar spent last year must have been essential to the health and welfare of the nation a very dubious assumption. A standard practice of all government bureaucracies is to spend every dollar of each years budget, necessary or not, out of fear that next years appropriation may be decreased. End-ofthe-year spending sprees are common. Reporting a surplus is considered downright dumb. Any suggestion that the federal budget for the coming year should be frozen at last years spending level will be considered cutting next years budget by billions of dollars, a lazy conclusion without investigation. In the magic world of federal spending, The White House or Congress might consider whether a project or program should be increased by two billion dollars on top of the built-in automatic increases. In the interest of economy, and looking good with voters, they might cut the increase to one billion dollars. They would then congratulate themselves and tell voters they had just reduced spending by a billion dollars total nonsense with a straight face. Its like going on a cruise expecting to gain 10 ten pounds, like the last trip we were on. Instead we gain only five pounds and then brag to friends and neighbors about losing five pounds. In Washington talk baseline has no connection to income, expenses, or even the ability of the government to borrow. The baseline is what politicians and bureaucrats think it ought to be a fiction treated as if it were fact. Congress and the White House regularly project long-term income which doesnt happen and long-term spending which may or may not be necessary, but is always politically desirable. Another factor in baseline budgeting are the increases caused by emergencies and new programs such as Obamacare, disasters, and stimulus spending. The baseline is like sticky paper. There is no such thing as onetime spending in Washington. The U.S. government takes in about $2.4 trillion in revenues (taxes) each year and has been spending $3.7 trillion. A trillion is a thousand billions. With a limping economy its unlikely revenues (taxes) are going to increase over the foreseeable future. Baseline budgeting baloney isnt going to change the limited alternatives of sane fiscal policy less spending or more taxes. Borrowing $1.3 trillion a year is just putting off an inevitable day of disaster. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 2, 2011 A s you may have guessed, Im not a particularly big fan of school buses or school zones. Theres a letter from Kevin Christian of the School Board office in todays paper, and hes defending the delays on the first day of school. All right, Ill give him the fact that it was the first day, and it may have taken a little longer to get children acclimated to make sure they knew which bus to take on the way home. Here are a couple of points, however. First, whats the excuse for the same thing happening with a different bus near the same location on the second week of school. Monday, Im heading south on 60th Avenue at some ridiculous hour of the morning, and theres a northbound school bus stopped not too far north of State Road 200. Its lights were on, and it was just sitting there, and sitting there, and sitting there. What made it worse was that 60th is a wide road with a median bigger than five feet, so opposite traffic doesnt have to stop, but there we were, sitting and waiting, because the drivers in front didnt know the law. But my frustration doesnt end there it really doesnt even begin there. Last week we editorialized about the fact that the bus stood and waited after children got on the bus at the end of a long dirt road whose terminus isnt visible from 60th. Even the mail doesnt go down that road, all the mailboxes are lined up at the eastern end. As one who feels that government should not be doing jobs that should be the parents duties, I have to wonder why these parents drive their children all the way out that dirt road, sit there until the bus comes, wait until it leaves, then go back down the road. Do you realize that in the time it takes to get there and wait, they could have driven their children to school? It would have made the ride more comfortable for the children, and chances are they could have left a little later in the morning like after sunrise. I know its a foreign concept to some parents responsible for their own children, instead of government being responsible for them. Im proud of my parents. I never rode a bus until high school, and that was only because I chose to go to a regional Catholic high school, instead of the local public school. Even then, I transferred schools after one year, and was within walking distance of my fathers pharmacy, and I walked to him every day, and he got me home. So I know the bus drivers have a tough job, but thats not my fault, its the fault of parents and the school system. And dont make the drivers do things like putting arm bands on little kids so they get on the right bus to come home. That should be an aides job. Whats that? You say the buses have no aides? Now that sounds like another whole column. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com.

M any years ago, Labor Day was established to honor the working people of our land, and that is still the purpose of the holiday. Up north, it marks the end of summer, but down here it has little effect on the people because of the weather. For now, Labor Day is a bittersweet reminder of the hard times that we are going through economically in the United States. The editorial cartoon near the bottom of todays page is very appropriate for many people, calling Labor Day The New Thanksgiving for many who are fortunate enough to be working and support a family, to say nothing of themselves. Still, we need to keep in mind the days purpose, to honor those who labor throughout our great nation. Workers have made our country the best in the world, and some of them have done it with the sweat of their brow and with nearly back-breaking effort. So take the time to think about those who work so hard for us across the country, and give them their due on the holiday. W e are approaching another holiday weekend, and we are begging people to please be careful on the roads. The past 10 days or so have been deadly on Marion County highways, with several people being killed in accidents. Tragically, the latest is western Marion County, in an accident on U.S. 27 at 154th. Two innocent people were killed when a car going the wrong way on the four-lane superhighway smashed into them head-on. The driver of the other vehicle had no working license. He has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, and well he should be. Its tough to avoid being an innocent victim, but you must try to be aware of your surroundings and spot people like this before they get to you. In this case that was nearly impossible, however. Please drive carefully this weekend. We dont want you on next weeks list. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As tensions ease on the home front, you can once more focus on changes in the workplace. Early difficulties are soon worked out. Stability returns as adjustments are made. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new romance tests the unattached Bovines patience to the limit. But Venus still rules the Taurean heart, so expect to find yourself trying hard to make this relationship work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to consider home-related purchases. But shop around carefully for the best price whether its a new house for the family or a new hose for the garden. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A contentious family member seems intent on creating problems. Best advice: Avoid stepping in until you know more about the origins of this domestic disagreement. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A recent job-related move proves far more successful than you could have imagined. Look for continued beneficial fallout. Even your critics have something nice to say. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Ease up and stop driving yourself to finish that project on a deadline that is no longer realistic. Your superiors will be open to requests for an extension. Ask for it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You should soon be hearing some positive feedback on that recent business move. An old family problem recurs, but this time youll know how to handle it better. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprising statements shed light on the problem that caused that once-warm relationship to cool off. Use this newly won knowledge to help turn things around. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your spiritual side is especially strong at this time. Let it guide you into deeper contemplation of aspects about yourself that youd like to understand better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your merrier aspect continues to dominate and to attract folks who rarely see this side of you. Some serious new romancing could develop out of all this cheeriness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre always concerned about the well-being of others. Its time you put some of that concern into your own health situation, especially where it involves nutrition. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Just when you thought your life had finally stabilized, along comes another change that needs to be addressed. Someone you trust can help you deal with it successfully. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sixth sense when it comes to finding people who need help long before they think of asking for it. And youre right there to provide it. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Community publications serve a vital role in our society. The first week of school has been busy but very successful thanks to students, parents, teachers, support workers, and countless others in our community, including bus drivers. Can you imagine the responsibility placed on you, as a bus driver, to personally and safely transport dozens of students to and from school every day? And on the very first day, which was the target of your recent editorial, picking up thousands of students for the very first time? How daunting must it be for the kindergarten youngster who steps aboard yet is comforted by a bus driver who greets him or her with a smile, friendly comment, and then places a colored wristband on each student to ensure they get on the right bus in the afternoon? Yes, this critical step stops traffic briefly. But this inconvenience ensures students make it home safely by getting to the right bus and stepping off at the right bus stop. It is a small sacrifice to pay when car drivers have already stopped thanks to the flashing red lights on the bus. Imagine how our community would come to a halt if thousands of kids ended up scattered across the county each afternoon on the wrong bus, at the wrong bus stop, because they had no wristband to remind them of their destination? Were sorry the morning drive time is inconvenienced at the start of each school year, but we wont apologize for taking every step necessary to protect our children, the most precious resource we have. Surely two minutes is worth children making it home safely. Kevin Christian Public Relations Officer / Coordinator of Television Media Productions Marion County Public Schools Postal ServiceRegarding the editorial printed on Aug. 12, 2011 pertaining to the Postal Service. It contains a few incorrect and misleading statements. The first incorrect statement is asking Congress to pay the cost of future health care for its employees. This is completely wrong. What the United States Postal Service (USPS), its unions, and large mailers are asking Congress to do is return overpayments into the federal pension system. The Inspector General has determined that the USPS has overpaid the pension system $75 billion, all this money coming from the payment of postage. No, I repeat, no tax money is involved. This money would then be added to the $42 billion that has already been set aside for future retiree health benefits. What this means is that USPS would then have banked 75 years worth of benefit payments. Employees not even born yet are paid for. There is no entity private or public that has been forced by law to do this. In fact I have no knowledge of anyone who has even 3 years worth of payments set aside. The second misleading statement is unable to finance its current obligations. For the last four years USPS has set aside $20.9 billion in health benefit payments, total losses for the four years $20.3 billion. Operationally USPS had a profit of $600 million. This profit was earned during the worst recession since the thirties. Third misstatement federal bailout, since no tax money is involved, only money paid by the mailing public, and none will be needed in the near future how can this be a bailout? I do realize that USPS has to change to stay relevant in todays society. This is what the Postal Service has done for over 220 years, it has adapted to the railroad, telegraph, telephone, airplane, radio, fax, and now the Internet. The founding fathers knew that it was important to have a postal system, that is why they put it in the constitution. Let us keep it that way by returning its own money to it and relieve the pressure to make a $5.5 billion profit to make payments on top of payments that have already been made. Fred Hassen Ocala Handling of economy?Should we really change the leadership of our country and turn the whole government over to the Republicans? History has shown that when it comes down to making decisions to improve conditions for the average American, the Republicans have come up missing in action. They were not only willing to allow our country to default on our obligations they refused to negotiate with the president to prevent this disaster from happening. They disrupted important meetings concerning saving our country from default on its obligations by refusing to talk and even walked out of these meetings concerning the national financial obligations. With nothing good coming out of these meetings their leader in the House, John Boehner, bragged that he got 98 percent of what he wanted by not negotiating for the American people. We have heard from our president that when congress reconvenes in September after their summer recess he is going to propose a bill to create jobs and put our unemployed to work. I would bet a weeks pay that the Republicans will not allow anything to pass that would help unemployed or underemployed Americans. Any takers?

Friday, September 2, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 2, 2011 www.smcitizen.com FairTax is the answerWhere are we going? Is this what the founding fathers envisioned? What are our elected officials doing to alleviate the situation? The answers to these questions are: No where, No way, and Not much. It seems that no matter what the politicians say they will do, nobody does anything. Are they even working on the right problems? Our country goes into a recession with millions of our citizens out of work and the government decides to spend all their time working on a health care policy that the vast majority of the citizens do not want. Instead of working on ways to get the economy moving, they decide to implement moratoriums and massive amounts of regulations that are forcing companies to close and jobs to be lost. Instead of facing the coming demise of Social Security and Medicare if reform is not implemented, they avoid any topic that may be controversial in hope of getting re-elected on their rhetoric rather than on their leadership. It doesnt make sense. If the members of Congress and the administration had the courage and the leadership to enact the FairTax (HR 25), many of our economic problems would disappear. The United States would go from the highest corporate tax rate in the world to the lowest which would encourage massive growth. With growth comes jobs and with jobs come increased revenue to the U.S. coffers to pay down our debt. Since everyone will be paying taxes and a percentage of those taxes must go to Social Security and Medicare, the FairTax will keep these programs solvent for many more years. These are just two points of the benefits of the FairTax over the current income tax system. If you want to know more, I suggest you go to FairTax.org or FLFairTax.org and read about it for yourself. I did. Elaine Maiellaro Ocala What Democrats? When someone says they are a member of the Democrat Party, my retort is: What Democrat Party? There is no Democrat Party. The Democrat Party was hijacked a long time ago by Socialists, and Marxists. Factions too cowardly to run out in the open. They co-opted the Democrat Party, by stealth. Anyone calling themselves a Democrat is fooling no one but themselves. Our founding fathers went through hell (literally, read the sacrifices they made) to give us freedom. Yeah, there are those who are willing to sell that freedom for a couple of bucks not even 40 pieces of silver}. Freedom comes cheap to some people. They do not have a clue of the worth of freedom. Freedom is the rarest commodity in the history of mankind. More precious than gold. Real Democrats have been hood-winked. If there were a true Democrat Party I might be tempted to join (Rhinos are no bargain), but a Socialist-Marxist Party is not my cup of tea. D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERS TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMNS BY MABEL RYAN Special to the Citizen T he national Tea Party continues to garner attention, some good and some bad, but all polls show their influence in decline. Perhaps this is to be expected when a movement explodes with great energy and demands change in the status quo and is successful in making changes. Many of the changes created by the Tea Party movement are for the good of the country and hopefully will remain in force in the future. The local group, Tea Party Solutions, Inc. of Ocala Florida, have as their mission statement Educate, Motivate, Activate. They advocate for smaller government, less taxes, fiscal responsibility, and the free market. All good and noble causes for nationwide conservatism but misses the mark with the most important cause, the right to life. Advocates for life suggest that attention should be paid to educating, motivating, and activating the public in promoting and securing life for the unborn. While solemnly pledging to honor the Declaration of Independence, they forget that referenced in this document are certain unalienable Rights endowed by the Creator and the first right named is life. Likewise, while pledging faithfulness to the Constitution of the United States, they omit that which is mentioned in Amendment XIV which is that no person will be deprived of life without due process of law. Since 1973 when the Roe versus Wade decision declared that abortion was legal, more than 54 million unborn citizens have been deprived of their lives without due process of law demanded by the Constitution. The local Tea Party concentrates on the United Nations agenda, personal rights of property owners, opposition to certain local and national politicians, decisions by the School Board, disagreement with the United Postal Service, dissension with the Social Security Administration, the EPA, and on and on, ad nauseam. And these areas should be addressed, but not to the exclusion of the first priority, life. Without life, none of the time and energy spent on other subjects will matter. It is impossible to improve the lives of the citizens in any area when attention is not directed to preserving the lives of the unborn. First there must be life before there is quality of life. At each local meeting the first agenda item is to pledge allegiance to God and country, but as the meetings progress, no mention is made of the children of God whose lives are being snuffed out in Ocala and elsewhere on a daily basis totaling more than a million lives each year for the past 38 years. Pro-lifers at the meetings wait in vain for any speaker to address abortion and many pro-lifers drift away from the group when this does not happen. With the street ministry sometimes seen at the City Square, occasionally there will be a pro-life sign, but this is due to individual pro-lifers who have the signs made up as pro-life is not part of the agenda of the official meetings. When political candidates are vetted before being endorsed by the Tea Party, abortion is not part of the vetting process. One only has to look at the report cards distributed to the public in 2010 before the mid-term elections to see that no candidate was required to state their position on abortion before being endorsed. With so important an issue, surely this cannot be considered an oversight. How many pro-abort politicians endorsed by the local Tea Party have received your vote because you believed them to be pro-life? It is not enough for pro-lifers to assume, as many of them do, that every Tea Party group is devoted to the sanctity of life. If pro-lifers are truly devoted to saving the lives of the unborn it is essential that uncaring groups be called out on the subject. It is disingenuous to condemn and denounce terrorism and turn a blind eye to abortion which is the ultimate act of terror against citizens unable to defend themselves. It speaks a lot about any conservative group that refuses to address terror against the most vulnerable among us, the unborn. When candidates for public office are given endorsement without stating their position on the issue of life, it is an unexpected and severe breach of trust. If the Ocala Tea Party continues to vet local politicians and distribute report cards to guide the public in their voting decisions, the first question that should be asked is their position on the sanctity of life, and that answer should be the first line item on the report card. To publish otherwise is a disservice and inadequate information to those who might depend on the candidates answers in this regard.

The Tea Party and the pro-life movement The problem of criminal trials by jury BY JEAN TOAN Special to the Citizen When America was still in infancy and developing and increasing its territories by expansion from East to West, creating myriads of small towns across the West, justice was very much in the hands of the local sheriff or judge of that town. Their pay and justification for their decisions rested in many instances in the hands of the richer ranchers and successful business men. During disputes and eventual trials, the less fortunate laboring people were dealt unjust decisions by these sheriffs and judges. Some public hangings were done because the regular folks knew that the sheriff or judge would decide in favor of the more rich and influential elite. The continued abuse and miscarriage of justice eventually led to the trial by jury, trials where a jury of ones peers would hear both sides of the issue, one accusatory and one defensive, to finally decide on the culpability or innocence of the accused. This was a very needed redress for the many gross injustices inflicted on the less financially and influential people. However, it is my personal opinion that over time, the efficiency and intellectual capacity affected by the influx of people from all over the world, prejudiced by their own cultural, religious, racial backgrounds, contributed in some cases to disparity in judgments. For me the most typical case was that of O.J. Simpson, the great football PLEASESEETOAN PAGE11 L abor Day, celebrated since 1882, signifies the end of summer for those who live up north where the weather has already started cooling off. For us its a long weekend away from work where we can relax at the beach or join in some fun activities. Make reading Pun Alley one of these fun activities. A raise from the boss The nagging wife told her husband that he had not been sufficiently explicit with the boss when he asked for a raise. Tell him, said the wife, that you have seven children, that you have a sick mother you have to sit up with many nights, and that you have to wash the dishes because you cant afford a maid. Several days later the husband came home and announced he had been fired. The boss, he explained, said I have too many outside activities. Vacation Carols daughter had applied for a job and when she returned home, her mother asked how the interview went. She replied pretty good I think, but if I go to work there I wont get a vacation unless Im married. Her mother of course, had never heard of such a thing and asked is that what they told you? She replied, No they didnt tell me that, but on the application it said, Vacation time may not be taken until youve had your First Anniversary. Laboring John doesnt have anything to worry about. His wife takes care of his money, and his mother-inlaw tends to his business. All he needs to do is work. If Ruth works well at a diner, is she being counter productive? A big company offered $50 for each money-saving idea submitted by its employees. First prize went to the employee who suggested the award be cut to $25. The reason we never see politicians playing golf is its too much like their work, trapped in one bad lie after another. I wish my friend would learn a trade so I would know what kind of work hes out of. The author of a rather obscure play insisted that the theatre let grossly obese people in for free. He wanted his work to be seen by a much wider audience. Being vague is just as bad as that other thing. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman. Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish. Hard work spotlights the character of people. Some turn up their sleeves. Some turn up their noses, and some dont turn up at all. Im never going to work for that man again. Why, what did he say? Youre fired. A Frenchman bought up the world supply of dried soup and became a bouillonaire. Hotel Owner: Did you find any towels in his suitcase? Bellhop: No, but I found a chambermaid in his grip. Who? A man named Dodgin was recently appointed foreman at a factory, but all the employees did not know him. One day while on his rounds he came across two men sitting in a corner, smoking, and stopped near them. He said, Im Dodgin, the new foreman. So are we, replied the other workers, sit down and have a smoke. Antics One little boy said to the other, Arent ants funny little things? They work, and work, and never play. Oh, I dont know about that, replied the other. Every time I go on a picnic they are there. Not me We want a responsible man for this job, said the employer to the applicant. Well I guess Im just your man, said the young fellow. No matter where I worked, whenever anything went wrong, they told me I was responsible. No company A man was applying for employment and asked the human resources manager, Does your company pay my medical insurance? No, you pay for it; its deducted from your salary, he was informed.

I cannot speak for anybody else; in fact, I have a hard enough time speaking for myself. Thankfully, I have those who have volunteered to speak on my behalf on a variety of issues. This has been good, relieving me the necessity of expressing myself. But, as people keep telling me, all things must end sometime. As far as I am concerned, I have had enough. There is absolutely no use in trying to talk me out of it; I have had enough. My wife and I just finished supper and were relaxing while watching a bit of television. We were busy chatting and rehashing the days events and not paying too much attention to what was on television. It finally dawned on us what the television program was all about. It was completely devoted to scandals that have happened recently. The program went through an almost endless list of people caught up in some kind of scandal. There were politicians, actors and actresses, musicians, business people and, much to our chagrin, ministers. The slime of scandal seems to touch every level of human society. Recently, a well-known minister in our area was found dead in a New York City hotel. Even though he was from our area, I really did not know too much about him. The TV program brought me up to date on his far-reaching scandal. It seems he had been living in adultery, which led to the divorce of his wife and the demise of his family. The thing that bothered me is that his scandal did not cause him to lose his job. He was still the pastor of a mega-church and his weekly sermons were broadcast on television and the Internet. As long as people like him, according to the story, he was allowed to get away with anything and everything. I absolutely object. Recently, an actor from Hollywood, the center of all that is indecent and immoral, was caught in an adulterous affair, which led to the divorce of his wife. He then comes on TV and tries to convince me, an absolute skeptic, that he is really a good person, a wonderful father and just an all-around nice guy. I absolutely object. In order to be a good father you have to be a good husband and in order to be a good husband you have to be a good man. A good man does not cheat. A good man does not hurt his family. What happened to the idea of putting your family first? A politician can be caught in some scandalous affair and all he has to do is go on television and say how sorry he is and that he is going to go to some rehab for his problem. In the meantime, this ethically challenged person is drawing a paycheck from the taxpayers of this country. I absolutely object. If this politician were sorry for his act, he would resign office right away and return to the public every cent of his salary and benefits that he has absconded while in office. Why do these people believe they can get away with everything and bear no consequence? If it started to touch their pocketbook, they might think a second time before doing some of these immoral cartwheels that has been happening lately. According to the TV program we were watching, these men in places of power cannot help what they are doing. I absolutely object. What I want to know is, how can some ethically challenged, immoral rascal make decisions for the rest of us that is going to be beneficial and helpful? I guess I have had just about all I can take. I am tired of hearing about sex scandals, money scandals and politicians who are involved in both. Im tired of hearing about ministers who have been caught up in the same scandalous web of immorality and greed. Some people shrug their shoulder and say, Well, I guess its just the American way. I absolutely object. Where are the men and women who have integrity in this country? Where are those who have some semblance of a good conscience? Where are those who think of others rather than themselves? As the TV program was concluding my wife and I looked at each other and sighed rather deeply. We both knew what each other was thinking. After 40 years of marital bliss, we have come to know one another rather well. Actually, she knows me better than I even know myself. In spite of all the problems in our country the real problem is that we have too much of everything. The average person in America is bored to death and looking for ways to spice up their life. In this feverish, nervous condition, people are looking outward to be dazzled and thrilled. And the next thrill has to be bigger and better and more spectacular than the previous thrill. I absolutely object. I long for those peaceful days of contentment and inner satisfaction. Maybe its my age, maybe its because I have been married for a long time, but nothing really beats the quietness of a life contented with what I have. That was the advice that the apostle Paul gave. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content (Philippians 4:11 KJV). To be content with what you have is to have all you need. The Rev.

Color RED is free! legend and hero who was judged innocent in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her boyfriend Ronald Goldman. For the jurors to find him guilty of murder would have been inviting death at the hands of vengeful crowds who worshipped their great football hero. The jury system was a failure. And now the Casey Anthony case. What kind of selection was conducted to obtain a Jury? If one is too well informed on the details of the disappearance and subsequent findings of the remains of Caylee Anthony and followed consistently the increasingly details of this event for two years, such a person could be considered prejudicial to give a totally unprejudiced rendition for the judgment. The defense lawyers in this case would not accept such a juror. On the other hand if one is not well aware of the details of this case, it means that person does not informed himself/herself with the news available in newspapers, TV news, the Internet, especially since the jury was selected in a county very close to Orange County where the event happened. How is one not well informed? If such a person is that ill informed, does that indicate intellectual deficiencies? Or is that person focused mostly on sports events, TV dramas and shows, soap operas, but not in real life happenings around you? How do you have the capacity to pass judgment intelligently? Furthermore it is expensive to select 12 jurors and have them sequestered sometimes for many weeks. How much more expensive to choose jurors from all over the country? Therefore the jury system limits the selection of jurors to nearby areas of the trial courthouse and this may lead to not having the best jurors assigned to the case. Out of 12 jurors, if one of them who for racial, or religious, or self-perceived spiritual superiority decides to stand against the rest of the jurors, could cause a hung jury and an injustice. On the other hand, the case of the Casey Anthony outcome, 12 jurors all agreed that the quantity and depth of circumstantial evidences did not constitute a guilty verdict? If not guilty of capital first-degree murder, what about non-capital first-degree murder? if not, what about second-degree murder (non-premeditated)? If not, what about manslaughter (did not intend for Caylee to die)? None of above, actually not guilty? Another failure of the jury system. What is the answer? Back to a non-jury system? A panel of three judges? And who shall choose those three judges? A panel of 12 professionals, 10 lawyers, five Democrats and five Republicans plus the prosecuting attorney and the defense attorney?

Some I knew about because the clubs publicity persons had sent me articles about the events, and the ticket sales dates. I did not know about other ticket sales dates coming up in the near future because no one had sent me an article. Please remember that if you are selling tickets you need to send me your article in time for it to appear in the column no later than the Friday before the week tickets will be sold. For example, if you are selling tickets on Sept. 26, your article needs to appear no later than the column on Friday, Sept. 23. This means you should send me the information by the previous weekend.

When the posters arrived in the mail, it was discovered that the bus wasnt coming until Sept. 8. Your columnist, who does the publicity for the blood drive, humbly apologizes to anyone who went to Palm Grove yesterday and didnt find a bus. It will be here on Thursday, Sept. 8, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Donors will receive a specialty t-shirt, a buy-oneget-one-free coupon for the Dominos Pizza on S.R. 200 across from Paddock Mall and a free round of golf with one cart at one of three golf courses in Marion County. You can donate if you have controlled high blood pressure or diabetes. You can also donate if you have been cancer free for one year. There is no upper age limit for donations and most medications and conditions do not prevent you from donating. Eat, and drink plenty of fluids before coming, and bring a picture ID. Reach Out Transportation Recently folks calling Pat Ghertler, transportation coordinator for Reach Out, had been informed by her answering machine that her mailbox was full and could not accept further messages. Be assured that Pat did not leave town without seeing to it there was someone else to make arrangements for transportation to medical appointments. Pat just wouldnt do that! She had been having trouble with her answering machine, thought it had been fixed and was unaware that it wasnt accepting messages. By the time you read this, hopefully, the problem will have been permanently solved. Do You Remember? Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the recent Italian American Club Rolling Right Along affair. It will air following FYI daily at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Sept. 2 to Sept. 9. Blood Pressure Clinic Do you know your numbers? Have your blood pressure taken by member of the Medical Team on Monday, Sept. 5, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Island Club. Way Off Broadway In St. Louis At The Fair Way Off Broadway has been into rehearsals for In St. Louis At The Fair since Saturday, Aug. 20, and the directors have been very pleased with the progress already made after so short a period. Sorted out for special attention is the job currently being done by Joe Zaccaro whose gifted voice has been enjoyed by not only Oak Runners but by people all over the Ocala Metropolitan Area. We have a term dreaded by cast members called off books. It means you have had to commit your role to memory and put your script aside. The script becomes a crutch that inhibits your ability to fully commit to the role you are playing. At this early point Joe not only has memorized both of his super songs but all of his dialogue as well. A job well done, Joe, and one to be proud of. This is not to say that other cast members arent putting in the effort to learn their parts as well. The directors have noted that in the last two plays our two theatre groups have been involved with, they have started out at a fast pace which indicates we have some well seasoned actors, singers and dancers. The play will be on stage in Palm Grove at 7 p.m. on October 14 and 15 and at 3 p.m. on Oct. 16. Ticket sales in the Orchid Club lobby are Sept. 10 from 8 to 10 a.m., Sept. 13 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sept. 14 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. In the Palm Grove Club ticket sales will be on Monday, Sept. 12, from 10 to 11 a.m. Reserved seats are only $7 and general admission only $5, a modest amount for a great nights entertainment. The choice tickets go fast so dont delay, get yours early. White Elephant Table Sales The Ambassadors will sponsor a White Elephant Sale on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Palm Grove. Lillian and Henry Hanscom will be selling 44 table spaces on Monday, Sept. 12, from 8 to 10 a.m. in the Orchid Club card room. The price for a whole table is $5 and a half table is $2.50. Make checks payable to ORHA; no cash please. Medical Team Meeting/Flu Shot Clinic Anyone with an interest in things health-related is invited to the Medical Team meeting on Monday, Sept. 12, at 3 p.m. in the Island Club. The team will discuss the Flu Shot Clinic which will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. as well as the Health Fair on Thursday, Oct. 27. Please note that the Palm Grove schedule of events in the September Oak Run Newsletter shows the time for the Flu Shot Clinic from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This time frame includes the set-up time but the doors will not be open until 10 a.m. Shots will be available for Oak Run residents, their guests and DECCA employees. If traditional Medicare is your primary insurance it will cover the flu shot. Eligibility for the Medicare reimbursement for the pneumonia shot depends on whether you meet the Medicare criteria. In general it can be said that said that no one needs a pneumonia shot every year. If you have no insurance, or you are going to pay up front and file for reimbursement from your insurance company, the cost for the flu shot is $30 and $65 for the pneumonia shot. If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan (not traditional Medicare) it is suggested that you contact your provider and find out if they will pay for shots administered by Maxim Health. In the past some Medicare Advantage plans have required that you have a coupon to present when you receive the shot. Please check with your provider in advance if you are not enrolled in traditional Medicare so that you are informed when you come to the clinic. Genealogy Club The Oak Run Genealogy Club will meet on Friday, Sept. 16, in the card room of the Orchid Club at 9:30 a.m. Mary Buerge will discuss family search indexing and related topics from her own ancestry research, including hints on finding clues in church records. Be sure to visit our blog at http://orgenealogy.blogspot. com/. Oak Run Veterans On Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Orchid Club, our speaker will be Tom Hanson from Operation Veteran Aid. He will talk about assisting war time veterans and their families. This should be a very informative meeting. We invite all Oak Run veterans to attend this meeting. If you wish to join our organization we will be glad to collect the $5 dues. A raffle will be held to benefit the Honor Flight leaving in October. We have three veterans going, so lets give them support as funds are needed. Oak Run Travel Time is fast approaching for the finalization of our fall 2011 brochure which will describe our trips for spring 2012. The travel hosts will meet on Thursday, Sept. 8, to select the trips they want to host and also choose the dates that these trips will be sold either at the Island Club or the Orchid Club.

J ews are a Semitic people originating in Mesopotamia, in the area of the Fertile Crescent. The first patriarch was Abraham, a wandering desert sheik who converted his whole household to the belief in one single Deity. He lived about 3,500 years ago in an area in what is now modern Iraq. After the Exodus from Egypt, the Israelites (todays Jews) settled in an area we know as Israel but which in ancient times are named Canaan, the Promised Land of the Bible. Since the early Israelites were farmers or herders they lived together within their respective tribes in Canaan with Jerusalem being the focus of their spiritual life. Enter the Babylonians. In 586 BCE, King Nebuchadnezzar conquered the Israelites and they were exiled to Babylonia. This was the beginning of what was to be called The Diaspora, the exile of Jews who eventually found their way to different countries all over the world. Though the Jews were eventually able to return to their homeland when King Cyrus of Persia defeated the Babylonians, not all returned, many had found homes and comfortable living outside of the Holy Land. The final blow came in 70 AD when the Romans burned Jerusalem and captured Judea as the land was then called. Until the independence of the modern State of Israel in 1948, Jews were a wandering nation with no homeland to call their own. So where did they go? Some went to Asia or Europe. Many assimilated into the native populations. Many were welcome into countries that could use their skills. And other times they were forced out because of religious persecution. Wherever Jews settled, they helped to prosper their host countries, often forming the middle and upper middle class. They were merchants, scholars, doctors, teachers and small businessmen. They built synagogues and schools and Jewish social service institutions. They advised kings and caliphs and ministered to the sick of the royal families. And they helped finance wars and exploratory ventures in the New World. Never a conquering or war-like people, the Jews have nevertheless managed to survive even after the Holocaust decimated 6 million of their members. Today the worldwide Jewish population stands at an estimated 13 million people. As we will see, Jews tend to settle around major cities where cultural, educational and commercial opportunities are greatest. Countries with large Jewish populations include: United States (6.5 million), Israel (5.1 million), Russia, (717,000) France, (606,561) Argentina (595,379) Canada (393,660), United Kingdom (303,207), Brazil (295,125) Ukraine (142,276), Germany (107,160) and South Africa (88,688). Those with 30,000 or more include Belarus, Hungary, Mexico, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Moldova, Uruguay and Italy. The least populated countries with under 1,000 total Jewish populations include Ecuador, Kyrgyzstan, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Armenia, Uganda, Portugal, Luxembourg and Bolivia. (source: Nationamaster.com) As would be expected, major cities in countries with large Jewish populations are the areas in which most Jews live. Jerusalem, Moscow, greater Paris, Tel Aviv and environs, Toronto, Buenos Aires, London, and St. Petersburg all have Jewish populations well in excess of 100,000. (source: Jewish Yearbook, London (2005) and American Jewish Yearbook, 2008) In the United States, highly populated states include, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida, D.C. and environs, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio and California. Least populated states include Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and Montana. These states have such small Jewish populations that if you lived there, you would probably know every Jew in the state! Major cities like New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Cleveland, Houston, Hartford, Baltimore, Detroit, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Atlanta and others are major centers of Jewish culture and religion. Our own state of Florida has the third largest Jewish population (653,435) in the country. (source: Jewish virtual library.com). According to the American Jewish Yearbook, 2008, South Florida leads the way with Broward County 170,700, Boca Raton-Delray 107,500, Miami-Dade County, 106,300 and Palm Beach County, not including Boca Raton 101,350. Our cities to the north and south, that is Gainesville and Orlando, contain populations of 2,500 and 20,700 respectively. I could not find statistics on Ocala or Citrus County but based on the number of affiliated Jews with synagogues and Jewish groups I would guestimate the population of Ocala/Marion County to be 1,500, while Citrus could have under 1,000. Again, these are not substantiated amounts but rough estimates; I could be under or over. Jewish tradition holds that we are scattered all over the world so that our influence for good and our ideas of social justice, mercy, compassion and living righteously would be a model for the nations to follow. Wherever Jews have lived, they have enriched the cultures they have lived amongst, even as they have adopted new ideas from their host countries and integrated them into Judaism. Since the State of Israel, the term wandering Jew, has become an anachronism but there is no doubt in my mind, that when humans land on Mars, there will be a Jewish astronaut on board who will probably open a kosher deli with food literally out of this world!

Well, we all wished for some rain and we are really getting our share. It is not easy to get the grass cut in between the raindrops, but the rains are a welcome sight. The feature this week The new feature for this week is Tony and Norma Dragani. Anthony (Tony) Dragani was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He had one sister and one brother. Tony started first grade in Pennsylvania, but later the family moved to Denver, Colorado. Tony and his sister went to the Christian Home for Children until he was 12 years old. Then he moved back to Pennsylvania and lived with his grandparents for a while. He went to Bok Vocational School until 10th grade. After he got out of school his first job was at a place called Phillys Cigars. He had many jobs after that but when he was 17 he joined the Navy. He said it was one of the best times of his life because in the Navy he became an electrician. After the Navy he got married and had two daughters. He moved to Atlantic City, New Jersey. He met Norma Duff in 1966. Norma was born in Glasgow, Scotland. She went to Ruchill Elementary School and then North Celvinside High school. After graduating she got a job on a dairy farm. Her next job was a bus conductor (collecting fares on buses) two story ones! She came to the U.S.A. in 1965 and first lived in Philadelphia and later moved to Atlantic City where she met Tony and they married in 1966. Norma worked for Sears full time for 43 years. In 1972 Normas mother moved in with them and she remained there for 27 years. By the way it was Tonys idea to have her come live with them. What a son-in-law! They moved from New Jersey to West Palm Beach and later to Stuart until they bought a home in Spruce Creek North in 2004. They both work parttime at Sears. They used to have a motorhome, a fifth wheel, etc for many years and they went many places before selling the last R.V. in 2009. They love to attend the SCN dances and other social events. The two daughters remain in Philly and there are now eight grandchildren and 14 greatgrandchildren and they hope to soon travel up there to see them all. Norma and Tony seem very happy spending time with each other. Plus we must not forget their cat Spooky, who has been with them for 14 years! Thrift Stores Galore If you want to find everything from soup to nuts, you must visit Divine Providence on 200. It is run by all volunteers. They have clothes, furniture, glassware, etc. and the list goes on. They are open at 10 a.m. six days a week, closed on Sunday. Another great place is at Jasmine Plaza. Its the Hospice Thrift store. There are plenty of specials going on every week. They open at 9 a.m., six days a week. Also there is a fairly new non-profit organization that opened up right next to Divine Providence called Helping Hands. They too have many items to choose from. And dont forget all the many garage sales going on every week everywhere. An Unexpected trip Unfortunately I took an unexpected ambulance ride to the hospital. All is OK now but I want to thank Monroe Hospital and all their staff and volunteers. They do an excellent job at a very crucial time. Also my thanks to Dr. Feldman and an RN named Linda on the night shift. She was a treasure! Thanks to all the friends and neighbors for the get well cards, emails and phone calls. A special thank you to Jon Hawley our neighbor. It is so nice to know that people take time from their busy lives to show they care! Reminders I want to remind all SCN residents and whoever else would like to attend that there will be a Labor Day Potluck on Monday, Sept. 5 at 12:30 p.m. Fern Eberly is the organizer of this event.

Well, we all wished for some rain and we are really getting our share. It is not easy to get the grass cut in between the raindrops, but the rains are a welcome sight. The feature this week The new feature for this week is Tony and Norma Dragani. Anthony (Tony) Dragani was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He had one sister and one brother. Tony started first grade in Pennsylvania, but later the family moved to Denver, Colorado. Tony and his sister went to the Christian Home for Children until he was 12 years old. Then he moved back to Pennsylvania and lived with his grandparents for a while. He went to Bok Vocational School until 10th grade. After he got out of school his first job was at a place called Phillys Cigars. He had many jobs after that but when he was 17 he joined the Navy. He said it was one of the best times of his life because in the Navy he became an electrician. After the Navy he got married and had two daughters. He moved to Atlantic City, New Jersey. He met Norma Duff in 1966. Norma was born in Glasgow, Scotland. She went to Ruchill Elementary School and then North Celvinside High school. After graduating she got a job on a dairy farm. Her next job was a bus conductor (collecting fares on buses) two story ones! She came to the U.S.A. in 1965 and first lived in Philadelphia and later moved to Atlantic City where she met Tony and they married in 1966. Norma worked for Sears full time for 43 years. In 1972 Normas mother moved in with them and she remained there for 27 years. By the way it was Tonys idea to have her come live with them. What a son-in-law! They moved from New Jersey to West Palm Beach and later to Stuart until they bought a home in Spruce Creek North in 2004. They both work parttime at Sears. They used to have a motorhome, a fifth wheel, etc for many years and they went many places before selling the last R.V. in 2009. They love to attend the SCN dances and other social events. The two daughters remain in Philly and there are now eight grandchildren and 14 greatgrandchildren and they hope to soon travel up there to see them all. Norma and Tony seem very happy spending time with each other. Plus we must not forget their cat Spooky, who has been with them for 14 years! Thrift Stores Galore If you want to find everything from soup to nuts, you must visit Divine Providence on 200. It is run by all volunteers. They have clothes, furniture, glassware, etc. and the list goes on. They are open at 10 a.m. six days a week, closed on Sunday. Another great place is at Jasmine Plaza. Its the Hospice Thrift store. There are plenty of specials going on every week. They open at 9 a.m., six days a week. Also there is a fairly new non-profit organization that opened up right next to Divine Providence called Helping Hands. They too have many items to choose from. And dont forget all the many garage sales going on every week everywhere. An Unexpected trip Unfortunately I took an unexpected ambulance ride to the hospital. All is OK now but I want to thank Monroe Hospital and all their staff and volunteers. They do an excellent job at a very crucial time. Also my thanks to Dr. Feldman and an RN named Linda on the night shift. She was a treasure! Thanks to all the friends and neighbors for the get well cards, emails and phone calls. A special thank you to Jon Hawley our neighbor. It is so nice to know that people take time from their busy lives to show they care!

J ews are a Semitic people originating in Mesopotamia, in the area of the Fertile Crescent. The first patriarch was Abraham, a wandering desert sheik who converted his whole household to the belief in one single Deity. He lived about 3,500 years ago in an area in what is now modern Iraq. After the Exodus from Egypt, the Israelites (todays Jews) settled in an area we know as Israel but which in ancient times are named Canaan, the Promised Land of the Bible. Since the early Israelites were farmers or herders they lived together within their respective tribes in Canaan with Jerusalem being the focus of their spiritual life. Enter the Babylonians. In 586 BCE, King Nebuchadnezzar conquered the Israelites and they were exiled to Babylonia. This was the beginning of what was to be called The Diaspora, the exile of Jews who eventually found their way to different countries all over the world. Though the Jews were eventually able to return to their homeland when King Cyrus of Persia defeated the Babylonians, not all returned, many had found homes and comfortable living outside of the Holy Land. The final blow came in 70 AD when the Romans burned Jerusalem and captured Judea as the land was then called. Until the independence of the modern State of Israel in 1948, Jews were a wandering nation with no homeland to call their own. So where did they go? Some went to Asia or Europe. Many assimilated into the native populations. Many were welcome into countries that could use their skills. And other times they were forced out because of religious persecution. Wherever Jews settled, they helped to prosper their host countries, often forming the middle and upper middle class. They were merchants, scholars, doctors, teachers and small businessmen. They built synagogues and schools and Jewish social service institutions. They advised kings and caliphs and ministered to the sick of the royal families. And they helped finance wars and exploratory ventures in the New World. Never a conquering or war-like people, the Jews have nevertheless managed to survive even after the Holocaust decimated 6 million of their members. Today the worldwide Jewish population stands at an estimated 13 million people. As we will see, Jews tend to settle around major cities where cultural, educational and commercial opportunities are greatest. Countries with large Jewish populations include: United States (6.5 million), Israel (5.1 million), Russia, (717,000) France, (606,561) Argentina (595,379) Canada (393,660), United Kingdom (303,207), Brazil (295,125) Ukraine (142,276), Germany (107,160) and South Africa (88,688). Those with 30,000 or more include Belarus, Hungary, Mexico, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Moldova, Uruguay and Italy. The least populated countries with under 1,000 total Jewish populations include Ecuador, Kyrgyzstan, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Armenia, Uganda, Portugal, Luxembourg and Bolivia. (source: Nationamaster.com) As would be expected, major cities in countries with large Jewish populations are the areas in which most Jews live. Jerusalem, Moscow, greater Paris, Tel Aviv and environs, Toronto, Buenos Aires, London, and St. Petersburg all have Jewish populations well in excess of 100,000. (source: Jewish Yearbook, London (2005) and American Jewish Yearbook, 2008) In the United States, highly populated states include, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida, D.C. and environs, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio and California. Least populated states include Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and Montana. These states have such small Jewish populations that if you lived there, you would probably know every Jew in the state! Major cities like New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Cleveland, Houston, Hartford, Baltimore, Detroit, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Atlanta and others are major centers of Jewish culture and religion. Our own state of Florida has the third largest Jewish population (653,435) in the country. (source: Jewish virtual library.com). According to the American Jewish Yearbook, 2008, South Florida leads the way with Broward County 170,700, Boca Raton-Delray 107,500, Miami-Dade County, 106,300 and Palm Beach County, not including Boca Raton 101,350. Our cities to the north and south, that is Gainesville and Orlando, contain populations of 2,500 and 20,700 respectively. I could not find statistics on Ocala or Citrus County but based on the number of affiliated Jews with synagogues and Jewish groups I would guestimate the population of Ocala/Marion County to be 1,500, while Citrus could have under 1,000. Again, these are not substantiated amounts but rough estimates; I could be under or over. Jewish tradition holds that we are scattered all over the world so that our influence for good and our ideas of social justice, mercy, compassion and living righteously would be a model for the nations to follow. Wherever Jews have lived, they have enriched the cultures they have lived amongst, even as they have adopted new ideas from their host countries and integrated them into Judaism. Since the State of Israel, the term wandering Jew, has become an anachronism but there is no doubt in my mind, that when humans land on Mars, there will be a Jewish astronaut on board who will probably open a kosher deli with food literally out of this world!

When the posters arrived in the mail, it was discovered that the bus wasnt coming until Sept. 8. Your columnist, who does the publicity for the blood drive, humbly apologizes to anyone who went to Palm Grove yesterday and didnt find a bus. It will be here on Thursday, Sept. 8, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Donors will receive a specialty t-shirt, a buy-oneget-one-free coupon for the Dominos Pizza on S.R. 200 across from Paddock Mall and a free round of golf with one cart at one of three golf courses in Marion County. You can donate if you have controlled high blood pressure or diabetes. You can also donate if you have been cancer free for one year. There is no upper age limit for donations and most medications and conditions do not prevent you from donating. Eat, and drink plenty of fluids before coming, and bring a picture ID. Reach Out Transportation Recently folks calling Pat Ghertler, transportation coordinator for Reach Out, had been informed by her answering machine that her mailbox was full and could not accept further messages. Be assured that Pat did not leave town without seeing to it there was someone else to make arrangements for transportation to medical appointments. Pat just wouldnt do that! She had been having trouble with her answering machine, thought it had been fixed and was unaware that it wasnt accepting messages. By the time you read this, hopefully, the problem will have been permanently solved. Do You Remember? Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the recent Italian American Club Rolling Right Along affair. It will air following FYI daily at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Sept. 2 to Sept. 9. Blood Pressure Clinic Do you know your numbers? Have your blood pressure taken by member of the Medical Team on Monday, Sept. 5, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Island Club. Way Off Broadway In St. Louis At The Fair Way Off Broadway has been into rehearsals for In St. Louis At The Fair since Saturday, Aug. 20, and the directors have been very pleased with the progress already made after so short a period. Sorted out for special attention is the job currently being done by Joe Zaccaro whose gifted voice has been enjoyed by not only Oak Runners but by people all over the Ocala Metropolitan Area. We have a term dreaded by cast members called off books. It means you have had to commit your role to memory and put your script aside. The script becomes a crutch that inhibits your ability to fully commit to the role you are playing. At this early point Joe not only has memorized both of his super songs but all of his dialogue as well. A job well done, Joe, and one to be proud of. This is not to say that other cast members arent putting in the effort to learn their parts as well. The directors have noted that in the last two plays our two theatre groups have been involved with, they have started out at a fast pace which indicates we have some well seasoned actors, singers and dancers. The play will be on stage in Palm Grove at 7 p.m. on October 14 and 15 and at 3 p.m. on Oct. 16. Ticket sales in the Orchid Club lobby are Sept. 10 from 8 to 10 a.m., Sept. 13 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sept. 14 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. In the Palm Grove Club ticket sales will be on Monday, Sept. 12, from 10 to 11 a.m. Reserved seats are only $7 and general admission only $5, a modest amount for a great nights entertainment. The choice tickets go fast so dont delay, get yours early. White Elephant Table Sales The Ambassadors will sponsor a White Elephant Sale on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Palm Grove. Lillian and Henry Hanscom will be selling 44 table spaces on Monday, Sept. 12, from 8 to 10 a.m. in the Orchid Club card room. The price for a whole table is $5 and a half table is $2.50. Make checks payable to ORHA; no cash please. Medical Team Meeting/Flu Shot Clinic Anyone with an interest in things health-related is invited to the Medical Team meeting on Monday, Sept. 12, at 3 p.m. in the Island Club. The team will discuss the Flu Shot Clinic which will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. as well as the Health Fair on Thursday, Oct. 27. Please note that the Palm Grove schedule of events in the September Oak Run Newsletter shows the time for the Flu Shot Clinic from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This time frame includes the set-up time but the doors will not be open until 10 a.m. Shots will be available for Oak Run residents, their guests and DECCA employees. If traditional Medicare is your primary insurance it will cover the flu shot. Eligibility for the Medicare reimbursement for the pneumonia shot depends on whether you meet the Medicare criteria. In general it can be said that said that no one needs a pneumonia shot every year. If you have no insurance, or you are going to pay up front and file for reimbursement from your insurance company, the cost for the flu shot is $30 and $65 for the pneumonia shot. If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan (not traditional Medicare) it is suggested that you contact your provider and find out if they will pay for shots administered by Maxim Health. In the past some Medicare Advantage plans have required that you have a coupon to present when you receive the shot. Please check with your provider in advance if you are not enrolled in traditional Medicare so that you are informed when you come to the clinic. Genealogy Club The Oak Run Genealogy Club will meet on Friday, Sept. 16, in the card room of the Orchid Club at 9:30 a.m. Mary Buerge will discuss family search indexing and related topics from her own ancestry research, including hints on finding clues in church records. Be sure to visit our blog at http://orgenealogy.blogspot. com/. Oak Run Veterans On Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Orchid Club, our speaker will be Tom Hanson from Operation Veteran Aid. He will talk about assisting war time veterans and their families. This should be a very informative meeting. We invite all Oak Run veterans to attend this meeting. If you wish to join our organization we will be glad to collect the $5 dues. A raffle will be held to benefit the Honor Flight leaving in October. We have three veterans going, so lets give them support as funds are needed.

I cannot speak for anybody else; in fact, I have a hard enough time speaking for myself. Thankfully, I have those who have volunteered to speak on my behalf on a variety of issues. This has been good, relieving me the necessity of expressing myself. But, as people keep telling me, all things must end sometime. As far as I am concerned, I have had enough. There is absolutely no use in trying to talk me out of it; I have had enough. My wife and I just finished supper and were relaxing while watching a bit of television. We were busy chatting and rehashing the days events and not paying too much attention to what was on television. It finally dawned on us what the television program was all about. It was completely devoted to scandals that have happened recently. The program went through an almost endless list of people caught up in some kind of scandal. There were politicians, actors and actresses, musicians, business people and, much to our chagrin, ministers. The slime of scandal seems to touch every level of human society. Recently, a well-known minister in our area was found dead in a New York City hotel. Even though he was from our area, I really did not know too much about him. The TV program brought me up to date on his far-reaching scandal. It seems he had been living in adultery, which led to the divorce of his wife and the demise of his family. The thing that bothered me is that his scandal did not cause him to lose his job. He was still the pastor of a mega-church and his weekly sermons were broadcast on television and the Internet. As long as people like him, according to the story, he was allowed to get away with anything and everything. I absolutely object. Recently, an actor from Hollywood, the center of all that is indecent and immoral, was caught in an adulterous affair, which led to the divorce of his wife. He then comes on TV and tries to convince me, an absolute skeptic, that he is really a good person, a wonderful father and just an all-around nice guy. I absolutely object. In order to be a good father you have to be a good husband and in order to be a good husband you have to be a good man. A good man does not cheat. A good man does not hurt his family. What happened to the idea of putting your family first? A politician can be caught in some scandalous affair and all he has to do is go on television and say how sorry he is and that he is going to go to some rehab for his problem. In the meantime, this ethically challenged person is drawing a paycheck from the taxpayers of this country. I absolutely object. If this politician were sorry for his act, he would resign office right away and return to the public every cent of his salary and benefits that he has absconded while in office. Why do these people believe they can get away with everything and bear no consequence? If it started to touch their pocketbook, they might think a second time before doing some of these immoral cartwheels that has been happening lately. According to the TV program we were watching, these men in places of power cannot help what they are doing. I absolutely object. What I want to know is, how can some ethically challenged, immoral rascal make decisions for the rest of us that is going to be beneficial and helpful? I guess I have had just about all I can take. I am tired of hearing about sex scandals, money scandals and politicians who are involved in both. Im tired of hearing about ministers who have been caught up in the same scandalous web of immorality and greed. Some people shrug their shoulder and say, Well, I guess its just the American way. I absolutely object. Where are the men and women who have integrity in this country? Where are those who have some semblance of a good conscience? Where are those who think of others rather than themselves? As the TV program was concluding my wife and I looked at each other and sighed rather deeply. We both knew what each other was thinking. After 40 years of marital bliss, we have come to know one another rather well. Actually, she knows me better than I even know myself. In spite of all the problems in our country the real problem is that we have too much of everything. The average person in America is bored to death and looking for ways to spice up their life. In this feverish, nervous condition, people are looking outward to be dazzled and thrilled. And the next thrill has to be bigger and better and more spectacular than the previous thrill. I absolutely object. I long for those peaceful days of contentment and inner satisfaction. Maybe its my age, maybe its because I have been married for a long time, but nothing really beats the quietness of a life contented with what I have. That was the advice that the apostle Paul gave. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content (Philippians 4:11 KJV). To be content with what you have is to have all you need. The Rev.

Color RED is free! legend and hero who was judged innocent in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her boyfriend Ronald Goldman. For the jurors to find him guilty of murder would have been inviting death at the hands of vengeful crowds who worshipped their great football hero. The jury system was a failure. And now the Casey Anthony case. What kind of selection was conducted to obtain a Jury? If one is too well informed on the details of the disappearance and subsequent findings of the remains of Caylee Anthony and followed consistently the increasingly details of this event for two years, such a person could be considered prejudicial to give a totally unprejudiced rendition for the judgment. The defense lawyers in this case would not accept such a juror. On the other hand if one is not well aware of the details of this case, it means that person does not informed himself/herself with the news available in newspapers, TV news, the Internet, especially since the jury was selected in a county very close to Orange County where the event happened. How is one not well informed? If such a person is that ill informed, does that indicate intellectual deficiencies? Or is that person focused mostly on sports events, TV dramas and shows, soap operas, but not in real life happenings around you? How do you have the capacity to pass judgment intelligently? Furthermore it is expensive to select 12 jurors and have them sequestered sometimes for many weeks. How much more expensive to choose jurors from all over the country? Therefore the jury system limits the selection of jurors to nearby areas of the trial courthouse and this may lead to not having the best jurors assigned to the case. Out of 12 jurors, if one of them who for racial, or religious, or self-perceived spiritual superiority decides to stand against the rest of the jurors, could cause a hung jury and an injustice. On the other hand, the case of the Casey Anthony outcome, 12 jurors all agreed that the quantity and depth of circumstantial evidences did not constitute a guilty verdict? If not guilty of capital first-degree murder, what about non-capital first-degree murder? if not, what about second-degree murder (non-premeditated)? If not, what about manslaughter (did not intend for Caylee to die)? None of above, actually not guilty? Another failure of the jury system. What is the answer? Back to a non-jury system? A panel of three judges? And who shall choose those three judges? A panel of 12 professionals, 10 lawyers, five Democrats and five Republicans plus the prosecuting attorney and the defense attorney?

Forty three members participated. Congratulations to a game well played. Carol Anns Corner While reading the September Oak Run Newsletter I noticed many, many ticket sales in the Orchid Club lobby this month. Some I knew about because the clubs publicity persons had sent me articles about the events, and the ticket sales dates. I did not know about other ticket sales dates coming up in the near future because no one had sent me an article. Please remember that if you are selling tickets you need to send me your article in time for it to appear in the column no later than the Friday before the week tickets will be sold. For example, if you are selling tickets on Sept. 26, your article needs to appear no later than the column on Friday, Sept. 23. This means you should send me the information by the previous weekend. There is always approximately a one week delay between my deadline and the date your article will appear.Send all items for this column to Carol Ann Wheeler at democratcarol@deccacable.com no later than the afternoon of the Friday before publication. Note there are no hyphens in the address. If you wish to call her, the number is in the Oak Run directory. You may send pictures as jpg attachments. Typed copy or hard copy photos can be placed in Carols cubby across the street from her house but should be submitted earlier as they take longer to process. The names of the people in all photos must be included.

Friday, September 2, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 2, 2011 www.smcitizen.com FairTax is the answerWhere are we going? Is this what the founding fathers envisioned? What are our elected officials doing to alleviate the situation? The answers to these questions are: No where, No way, and Not much. It seems that no matter what the politicians say they will do, nobody does anything. Are they even working on the right problems? Our country goes into a recession with millions of our citizens out of work and the government decides to spend all their time working on a health care policy that the vast majority of the citizens do not want. Instead of working on ways to get the economy moving, they decide to implement moratoriums and massive amounts of regulations that are forcing companies to close and jobs to be lost. Instead of facing the coming demise of Social Security and Medicare if reform is not implemented, they avoid any topic that may be controversial in hope of getting re-elected on their rhetoric rather than on their leadership. It doesnt make sense. If the members of Congress and the administration had the courage and the leadership to enact the FairTax (HR 25), many of our economic problems would disappear. The United States would go from the highest corporate tax rate in the world to the lowest which would encourage massive growth. With growth comes jobs and with jobs come increased revenue to the U.S. coffers to pay down our debt. Since everyone will be paying taxes and a percentage of those taxes must go to Social Security and Medicare, the FairTax will keep these programs solvent for many more years. These are just two points of the benefits of the FairTax over the current income tax system. If you want to know more, I suggest you go to FairTax.org or FLFairTax.org and read about it for yourself. I did. Elaine Maiellaro Ocala What Democrats? When someone says they are a member of the Democrat Party, my retort is: What Democrat Party? There is no Democrat Party. The Democrat Party was hijacked a long time ago by Socialists, and Marxists. Factions too cowardly to run out in the open. They co-opted the Democrat Party, by stealth. Anyone calling themselves a Democrat is fooling no one but themselves. Our founding fathers went through hell (literally, read the sacrifices they made) to give us freedom. Yeah, there are those who are willing to sell that freedom for a couple of bucks not even 40 pieces of silver}. Freedom comes cheap to some people. They do not have a clue of the worth of freedom. Freedom is the rarest commodity in the history of mankind. More precious than gold. Real Democrats have been hood-winked. If there were a true Democrat Party I might be tempted to join (Rhinos are no bargain), but a Socialist-Marxist Party is not my cup of tea. D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERS TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMNS BY MABEL RYAN Special to the Citizen T he national Tea Party continues to garner attention, some good and some bad, but all polls show their influence in decline. Perhaps this is to be expected when a movement explodes with great energy and demands change in the status quo and is successful in making changes. Many of the changes created by the Tea Party movement are for the good of the country and hopefully will remain in force in the future. The local group, Tea Party Solutions, Inc. of Ocala Florida, have as their mission statement Educate, Motivate, Activate. They advocate for smaller government, less taxes, fiscal responsibility, and the free market. All good and noble causes for nationwide conservatism but misses the mark with the most important cause, the right to life. Advocates for life suggest that attention should be paid to educating, motivating, and activating the public in promoting and securing life for the unborn. While solemnly pledging to honor the Declaration of Independence, they forget that referenced in this document are certain unalienable Rights endowed by the Creator and the first right named is life. Likewise, while pledging faithfulness to the Constitution of the United States, they omit that which is mentioned in Amendment XIV which is that no person will be deprived of life without due process of law. Since 1973 when the Roe versus Wade decision declared that abortion was legal, more than 54 million unborn citizens have been deprived of their lives without due process of law demanded by the Constitution. The local Tea Party concentrates on the United Nations agenda, personal rights of property owners, opposition to certain local and national politicians, decisions by the School Board, disagreement with the United Postal Service, dissension with the Social Security Administration, the EPA, and on and on, ad nauseam. And these areas should be addressed, but not to the exclusion of the first priority, life. Without life, none of the time and energy spent on other subjects will matter. It is impossible to improve the lives of the citizens in any area when attention is not directed to preserving the lives of the unborn. First there must be life before there is quality of life. At each local meeting the first agenda item is to pledge allegiance to God and country, but as the meetings progress, no mention is made of the children of God whose lives are being snuffed out in Ocala and elsewhere on a daily basis totaling more than a million lives each year for the past 38 years. Pro-lifers at the meetings wait in vain for any speaker to address abortion and many pro-lifers drift away from the group when this does not happen. With the street ministry sometimes seen at the City Square, occasionally there will be a pro-life sign, but this is due to individual pro-lifers who have the signs made up as pro-life is not part of the agenda of the official meetings. When political candidates are vetted before being endorsed by the Tea Party, abortion is not part of the vetting process. One only has to look at the report cards distributed to the public in 2010 before the mid-term elections to see that no candidate was required to state their position on abortion before being endorsed. With so important an issue, surely this cannot be considered an oversight. How many pro-abort politicians endorsed by the local Tea Party have received your vote because you believed them to be pro-life? It is not enough for pro-lifers to assume, as many of them do, that every Tea Party group is devoted to the sanctity of life. If pro-lifers are truly devoted to saving the lives of the unborn it is essential that uncaring groups be called out on the subject. It is disingenuous to condemn and denounce terrorism and turn a blind eye to abortion which is the ultimate act of terror against citizens unable to defend themselves. It speaks a lot about any conservative group that refuses to address terror against the most vulnerable among us, the unborn. When candidates for public office are given endorsement without stating their position on the issue of life, it is an unexpected and severe breach of trust. If the Ocala Tea Party continues to vet local politicians and distribute report cards to guide the public in their voting decisions, the first question that should be asked is their position on the sanctity of life, and that answer should be the first line item on the report card. To publish otherwise is a disservice and inadequate information to those who might depend on the candidates answers in this regard. Until the Tea Party Solutions Inc. of Ocala make clear their pro-life position and then give time and energy to the solution to establish their sincerity, their meeting attendance will continue to shrink as is being seen now, and they will be left with only those who are interested in the subjects of lesser importance such as is being presented now. Mabel Ryan is president Life Education Ministry, Inc. The Tea Party and the pro-life movement The problem of criminal trials by jury BY JEAN TOAN Special to the Citizen When America was still in infancy and developing and increasing its territories by expansion from East to West, creating myriads of small towns across the West, justice was very much in the hands of the local sheriff or judge of that town. Their pay and justification for their decisions rested in many instances in the hands of the richer ranchers and successful business men. During disputes and eventual trials, the less fortunate laboring people were dealt unjust decisions by these sheriffs and judges. Some public hangings were done because the regular folks knew that the sheriff or judge would decide in favor of the more rich and influential elite. The continued abuse and miscarriage of justice eventually led to the trial by jury, trials where a jury of ones peers would hear both sides of the issue, one accusatory and one defensive, to finally decide on the culpability or innocence of the accused. This was a very needed redress for the many gross injustices inflicted on the less financially and influential people. However, it is my personal opinion that over time, the efficiency and intellectual capacity affected by the influx of people from all over the world, prejudiced by their own cultural, religious, racial backgrounds, contributed in some cases to disparity in judgments. For me the most typical case was that of O.J. Simpson, the great football PLEASESEETOAN PAGE11 L abor Day, celebrated since 1882, signifies the end of summer for those who live up north where the weather has already started cooling off. For us its a long weekend away from work where we can relax at the beach or join in some fun activities. Make reading Pun Alley one of these fun activities. A raise from the boss The nagging wife told her husband that he had not been sufficiently explicit with the boss when he asked for a raise. Tell him, said the wife, that you have seven children, that you have a sick mother you have to sit up with many nights, and that you have to wash the dishes because you cant afford a maid. Several days later the husband came home and announced he had been fired. The boss, he explained, said I have too many outside activities. Vacation Carols daughter had applied for a job and when she returned home, her mother asked how the interview went. She replied pretty good I think, but if I go to work there I wont get a vacation unless Im married. Her mother of course, had never heard of such a thing and asked is that what they told you? She replied, No they didnt tell me that, but on the application it said, Vacation time may not be taken until youve had your First Anniversary. Laboring John doesnt have anything to worry about. His wife takes care of his money, and his mother-inlaw tends to his business. All he needs to do is work. If Ruth works well at a diner, is she being counter productive? A big company offered $50 for each money-saving idea submitted by its employees. First prize went to the employee who suggested the award be cut to $25. The reason we never see politicians playing golf is its too much like their work, trapped in one bad lie after another. I wish my friend would learn a trade so I would know what kind of work hes out of. The author of a rather obscure play insisted that the theatre let grossly obese people in for free. He wanted his work to be seen by a much wider audience. Being vague is just as bad as that other thing. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman. Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish. Hard work spotlights the character of people. Some turn up their sleeves. Some turn up their noses, and some dont turn up at all. Im never going to work for that man again. Why, what did he say? Youre fired. A Frenchman bought up the world supply of dried soup and became a bouillonaire. Hotel Owner: Did you find any towels in his suitcase? Bellhop: No, but I found a chambermaid in his grip. Who? A man named Dodgin was recently appointed foreman at a factory, but all the employees did not know him. One day while on his rounds he came across two men sitting in a corner, smoking, and stopped near them. He said, Im Dodgin, the new foreman. So are we, replied the other workers, sit down and have a smoke. Antics One little boy said to the other, Arent ants funny little things? They work, and work, and never play. Oh, I dont know about that, replied the other. Every time I go on a picnic they are there. Not me We want a responsible man for this job, said the employer to the applicant. Well I guess Im just your man, said the young fellow. No matter where I worked, whenever anything went wrong, they told me I was responsible. No company A man was applying for employment and asked the human resources manager, Does your company pay my medical insurance? No, you pay for it; its deducted from your salary, he was informed. The applicant said Last place I worked they paid for it, they give me a life insurance policy, had profit sharing, three-week vacations, and large bonuses. Why did you leave? The company folded.

Community publications serve a vital role in our society. The first week of school has been busy but very successful thanks to students, parents, teachers, support workers, and countless others in our community, including bus drivers. Can you imagine the responsibility placed on you, as a bus driver, to personally and safely transport dozens of students to and from school every day? And on the very first day, which was the target of your recent editorial, picking up thousands of students for the very first time? How daunting must it be for the kindergarten youngster who steps aboard yet is comforted by a bus driver who greets him or her with a smile, friendly comment, and then places a colored wristband on each student to ensure they get on the right bus in the afternoon? Yes, this critical step stops traffic briefly. But this inconvenience ensures students make it home safely by getting to the right bus and stepping off at the right bus stop. It is a small sacrifice to pay when car drivers have already stopped thanks to the flashing red lights on the bus. Imagine how our community would come to a halt if thousands of kids ended up scattered across the county each afternoon on the wrong bus, at the wrong bus stop, because they had no wristband to remind them of their destination? Were sorry the morning drive time is inconvenienced at the start of each school year, but we wont apologize for taking every step necessary to protect our children, the most precious resource we have. Surely two minutes is worth children making it home safely. Kevin Christian Public Relations Officer / Coordinator of Television Media Productions Marion County Public Schools Postal ServiceRegarding the editorial printed on Aug. 12, 2011 pertaining to the Postal Service. It contains a few incorrect and misleading statements. The first incorrect statement is asking Congress to pay the cost of future health care for its employees. This is completely wrong. What the United States Postal Service (USPS), its unions, and large mailers are asking Congress to do is return overpayments into the federal pension system. The Inspector General has determined that the USPS has overpaid the pension system $75 billion, all this money coming from the payment of postage. No, I repeat, no tax money is involved. This money would then be added to the $42 billion that has already been set aside for future retiree health benefits. What this means is that USPS would then have banked 75 years worth of benefit payments. Employees not even born yet are paid for. There is no entity private or public that has been forced by law to do this. In fact I have no knowledge of anyone who has even 3 years worth of payments set aside. The second misleading statement is unable to finance its current obligations. For the last four years USPS has set aside $20.9 billion in health benefit payments, total losses for the four years $20.3 billion. Operationally USPS had a profit of $600 million. This profit was earned during the worst recession since the thirties. Third misstatement federal bailout, since no tax money is involved, only money paid by the mailing public, and none will be needed in the near future how can this be a bailout? I do realize that USPS has to change to stay relevant in todays society. This is what the Postal Service has done for over 220 years, it has adapted to the railroad, telegraph, telephone, airplane, radio, fax, and now the Internet. The founding fathers knew that it was important to have a postal system, that is why they put it in the constitution. Let us keep it that way by returning its own money to it and relieve the pressure to make a $5.5 billion profit to make payments on top of payments that have already been made. Fred Hassen Ocala Handling of economy?Should we really change the leadership of our country and turn the whole government over to the Republicans? History has shown that when it comes down to making decisions to improve conditions for the average American, the Republicans have come up missing in action. They were not only willing to allow our country to default on our obligations they refused to negotiate with the president to prevent this disaster from happening. They disrupted important meetings concerning saving our country from default on its obligations by refusing to talk and even walked out of these meetings concerning the national financial obligations. With nothing good coming out of these meetings their leader in the House, John Boehner, bragged that he got 98 percent of what he wanted by not negotiating for the American people. We have heard from our president that when congress reconvenes in September after their summer recess he is going to propose a bill to create jobs and put our unemployed to work. I would bet a weeks pay that the Republicans will not allow anything to pass that would help unemployed or underemployed Americans. Any takers?

Friday, September 2, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T he difficulty among the House, Senate, and president in reaching a debt and deficit agreement for the coming fiscal year was that they were discussing fictional numbers as if they were real. For decades federal budgeting and spending has been designed to obscure the ambitions and intentions of Washington politicians and bureaucrats. Its called baseline budgeting. The object is to give the impression that legislators are providing more services without voting for more spending. Congress and the White House use the high-sounding hocuspocus of baseline budgeting to explain the taxing, spending, and borrowing process. Baseline budgeting begins with a conviction that every federal dollar spent last year must have been essential to the health and welfare of the nation a very dubious assumption. A standard practice of all government bureaucracies is to spend every dollar of each years budget, necessary or not, out of fear that next years appropriation may be decreased. End-ofthe-year spending sprees are common. Reporting a surplus is considered downright dumb. Any suggestion that the federal budget for the coming year should be frozen at last years spending level will be considered cutting next years budget by billions of dollars, a lazy conclusion without investigation. In the magic world of federal spending, The White House or Congress might consider whether a project or program should be increased by two billion dollars on top of the built-in automatic increases. In the interest of economy, and looking good with voters, they might cut the increase to one billion dollars. They would then congratulate themselves and tell voters they had just reduced spending by a billion dollars total nonsense with a straight face. Its like going on a cruise expecting to gain 10 ten pounds, like the last trip we were on. Instead we gain only five pounds and then brag to friends and neighbors about losing five pounds. In Washington talk baseline has no connection to income, expenses, or even the ability of the government to borrow. The baseline is what politicians and bureaucrats think it ought to be a fiction treated as if it were fact. Congress and the White House regularly project long-term income which doesnt happen and long-term spending which may or may not be necessary, but is always politically desirable. Another factor in baseline budgeting are the increases caused by emergencies and new programs such as Obamacare, disasters, and stimulus spending. The baseline is like sticky paper. There is no such thing as onetime spending in Washington. The U.S. government takes in about $2.4 trillion in revenues (taxes) each year and has been spending $3.7 trillion. A trillion is a thousand billions. With a limping economy its unlikely revenues (taxes) are going to increase over the foreseeable future. Baseline budgeting baloney isnt going to change the limited alternatives of sane fiscal policy less spending or more taxes. Borrowing $1.3 trillion a year is just putting off an inevitable day of disaster. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 2, 2011 A s you may have guessed, Im not a particularly big fan of school buses or school zones. Theres a letter from Kevin Christian of the School Board office in todays paper, and hes defending the delays on the first day of school. All right, Ill give him the fact that it was the first day, and it may have taken a little longer to get children acclimated to make sure they knew which bus to take on the way home. Here are a couple of points, however. First, whats the excuse for the same thing happening with a different bus near the same location on the second week of school. Monday, Im heading south on 60th Avenue at some ridiculous hour of the morning, and theres a northbound school bus stopped not too far north of State Road 200. Its lights were on, and it was just sitting there, and sitting there, and sitting there. What made it worse was that 60th is a wide road with a median bigger than five feet, so opposite traffic doesnt have to stop, but there we were, sitting and waiting, because the drivers in front didnt know the law. But my frustration doesnt end there it really doesnt even begin there. Last week we editorialized about the fact that the bus stood and waited after children got on the bus at the end of a long dirt road whose terminus isnt visible from 60th. Even the mail doesnt go down that road, all the mailboxes are lined up at the eastern end. As one who feels that government should not be doing jobs that should be the parents duties, I have to wonder why these parents drive their children all the way out that dirt road, sit there until the bus comes, wait until it leaves, then go back down the road. Do you realize that in the time it takes to get there and wait, they could have driven their children to school? It would have made the ride more comfortable for the children, and chances are they could have left a little later in the morning like after sunrise. I know its a foreign concept to some parents responsible for their own children, instead of government being responsible for them. Im proud of my parents. I never rode a bus until high school, and that was only because I chose to go to a regional Catholic high school, instead of the local public school. Even then, I transferred schools after one year, and was within walking distance of my fathers pharmacy, and I walked to him every day, and he got me home. So I know the bus drivers have a tough job, but thats not my fault, its the fault of parents and the school system. And dont make the drivers do things like putting arm bands on little kids so they get on the right bus to come home. That should be an aides job. Whats that? You say the buses have no aides? Now that sounds like another whole column. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com.

M any years ago, Labor Day was established to honor the working people of our land, and that is still the purpose of the holiday. Up north, it marks the end of summer, but down here it has little effect on the people because of the weather. For now, Labor Day is a bittersweet reminder of the hard times that we are going through economically in the United States. The editorial cartoon near the bottom of todays page is very appropriate for many people, calling Labor Day The New Thanksgiving for many who are fortunate enough to be working and support a family, to say nothing of themselves. Still, we need to keep in mind the days purpose, to honor those who labor throughout our great nation. Workers have made our country the best in the world, and some of them have done it with the sweat of their brow and with nearly back-breaking effort. So take the time to think about those who work so hard for us across the country, and give them their due on the holiday. W e are approaching another holiday weekend, and we are begging people to please be careful on the roads. The past 10 days or so have been deadly on Marion County highways, with several people being killed in accidents. Tragically, the latest is western Marion County, in an accident on U.S. 27 at 154th. Two innocent people were killed when a car going the wrong way on the four-lane superhighway smashed into them head-on. The driver of the other vehicle had no working license. He has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, and well he should be. Its tough to avoid being an innocent victim, but you must try to be aware of your surroundings and spot people like this before they get to you. In this case that was nearly impossible, however. Please drive carefully this weekend. We dont want you on next weeks list. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Labor Day tough reminder for some Traffic death toll is cause for concern More about our local school buses Jim Flynn Columnist Devious debt and deficit double-talk Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED Please answer our poll question at www.smcitizen.com Do you feel safer now than you did 10 years ago? ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As tensions ease on the home front, you can once more focus on changes in the workplace. Early difficulties are soon worked out. Stability returns as adjustments are made. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new romance tests the unattached Bovines patience to the limit. But Venus still rules the Taurean heart, so expect to find yourself trying hard to make this relationship work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to consider home-related purchases. But shop around carefully for the best price whether its a new house for the family or a new hose for the garden. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A contentious family member seems intent on creating problems. Best advice: Avoid stepping in until you know more about the origins of this domestic disagreement. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A recent job-related move proves far more successful than you could have imagined. Look for continued beneficial fallout. Even your critics have something nice to say. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Ease up and stop driving yourself to finish that project on a deadline that is no longer realistic. Your superiors will be open to requests for an extension. Ask for it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You should soon be hearing some positive feedback on that recent business move. An old family problem recurs, but this time youll know how to handle it better. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprising statements shed light on the problem that caused that once-warm relationship to cool off. Use this newly won knowledge to help turn things around. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your spiritual side is especially strong at this time. Let it guide you into deeper contemplation of aspects about yourself that youd like to understand better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your merrier aspect continues to dominate and to attract folks who rarely see this side of you. Some serious new romancing could develop out of all this cheeriness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre always concerned about the well-being of others. Its time you put some of that concern into your own health situation, especially where it involves nutrition. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Just when you thought your life had finally stabilized, along comes another change that needs to be addressed. Someone you trust can help you deal with it successfully. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sixth sense when it comes to finding people who need help long before they think of asking for it. And youre right there to provide it. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Community calendar Ocala native and Emmy winner Buddy Martin will host a three-hour local radio show in afternoon drive-time beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6 on WOCA AM1370 and FM 96.7. The Voice of Ocala will be heard Monday-Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and will feature local guests and local issues, as well as state, regional and national news, sports and interviews that impact Ocala. One hour will be devoted to Ocala lifestyle, with topics everything from health, education, crime and police protection, food, fashion and design, arts and entertainment, nostalgia, history, books, travel, charity, religion, etc. Page One will deal with the news of the day, as well as stories behind the news, interviews with the newsmakers, weather, business, quirky stories, how government works and call-ins. Buddy Martins Sports Page will feature an hour of interviews, news and caller participation daily. Since the program is called The Voice of Ocala, Martin said the show would continue to evolve. Much of the content will be derived from a consensus of what the Ocala audience wants to hear, he said. I am really excited about getting the chance to talk about my community and with the people who have worked diligently to make Ocala one of the great places in America to live, said Martin, a third-generation Ocalan. Ive lived all over the country and have come to realize late in life that Ocala is such a special place that we need to tell the world about it as well as reminding ourselves each day how lucky we are to live here. The beauty and natural resources of this area are second to none. And Im going to make it my business to lead discussions about that. Thus the title of the show, he said. So the real Voice of Ocala is not me Im just the conduit. The real voice comes from the people who are so fortunate to be living here. Martin is an Emmy winner (including an Emmy while working on The NFL Today at CBS-TV Sports), author of seven books, and sports columnist/radio/TV personality who has built a national reputation as one of the media industrys most recognizable names. While working at the Denver Post, New York Daily News, St. Petersburg Times, the distinguished journalist won more than 170 state and national awards as an editor, writer and TV producer. Most recently Martin received the first Wilton F. Martin Communicator of the Year Award from the Florida Public Relations Association Ocala Chapter. The award was named after Buddys late father, co-founder of the state association. Buddy is heavily involved in the community as co-founder of the Save The Marion Theater group which has helped the City of Ocala turn around the fate of the historic, 71-year-old movie house that has operated at a profit since May. While working at Florida Today, Gannett News Service and Charlotte Sun, among the awards he or his newspaper claimed were best national Best Lifestyle Section (Penny-Missouri), Best Sunday Sports Section nationally (APSE), Best Feature Writer New York State (Associated Press) and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in breaking news (2005). He has been named best columnist or sports columnist in Florida for both magazines and newspapers six times. Martin is also author of the authorized biography of Florida football coach Urban Meyer, Urbans Way, which is out in paperback (St. Martins Press). He also wrote Terrys Bradshaws autobiography, Looking Deep. Buddy was co-creator of the Sports Journalism Summit at Poynter Media Institute in St. Petersburg, where he has been both a panelist and co-director of programs. Martin graduated from Ocala High School and was schooled in journalism department at the University of Florida, where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity and earned a letter playing Gator baseball. He lives in Ocala with his longtime wife Joni. They have two daughters (Lori Gregory of Ocala and Rebecca Doubek of Wyomissing, PA); one son (Brenden Martin of Ocala) and three grandchildren.

Meanwhile, through the generosity of others, many youths 18 and under will have chances to attend the movie free when accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult. Free tickets for students are being provided by the Moot Thomas Amateur Golf Fund, starting with the opening on Friday and concluding on Thursday, Sept. 8. The first 25 students (grades 1-12) that are accompanied by a ticket-purchasing parent will receive a free ticket for each days 4:15 p.m. and 7 p.m. showings. The Moot Thomas Amateur Golf Fund supports local amateur and junior golf in a variety of ways, through contributions managed by Trustees, which are received at PO Box 2798, Ocala. The Trustees believe Moot would have supported sharing this movie with all youth of Ocala. The Fund is also providing free tickets to all Marion County high school golf coaches and team members for a high school golf team showing. In addition, a copy of the David Cooks book, Golfs Sacred Journey, www.linksofutopia.com on which the movie is based and drawn from experiences Dr. Cook has had as a sports psychologist, will be given to each of those 25 parents who receive a free ticket for his or her child, at the 4:15 and 7 p.m. showings each day, compliments of The Briggs Law Firm and its partners, Randy and Bo Briggs, 5th generation Ocala personal injury lawyers, and supporters of The Marion Theater and HOPS. Seven Days in Utopia is a movie about a fictional character named Luke Chisolm set on joining the pro golf tour with his father as his caddie and a subsequent meltdown which creates a rift in their relationship and causes the young mans journey through defeat and discouragement to learn lessons about life as well as golf. The Save The Marion Theater Group is planning a series of events including local competition at area golf coursesto alert the community about the inspiring story about a father and son relationship and a journey to deep faith, and will sponsor a special Saturday morning matinee Sept. 3 at the Marion Theatre with tickets available for an adult for $7.50, which includes a free ticket for a child under 18 and a free copy of the book as well. Local golf courses participating in the Utopia World Putting Championship to be held on Magnolia Avenue Friday, Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. in front of the Marion Theatre are Country Club of Ocala, Golden Ocala, Golden Hills, Ocala Muny, and Silver Springs Shores. Since the Save The Marion Theater Group began its promotion of ticket sales at the Marion Theatre in order to save it from closing, attendance is up and the movie house has posted three consecutive profitable months through July.

Contact Ingrid Crane at 352-854-7950 Interfaith ceremony at First Congregational ChurchTen years after the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001 transformed our entire world, The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County invites members of all faith and non-faith traditions to come together on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011 for a service of remembrance, hope and light at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 7171 S.W. State Road 200. The event will begin at 7 p.m. after which light refreshments will be served. Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Christians, Muslims. Jains, Bahai, Mormons, atheists, agnostics and all other members of the human family are welcome to become one in the spirit of universal love and compassion as they share memories, music and words of wisdom from their various liturgies. In so doing, Dr. Hal McSwain, chairman of the event and pastor of the host congregation, believes that we will deny terrorism any victory, honor those who have died, comfort those who still suffer, ennoble our common resolve and strengthen our community and our world. The Interfaith Alliance is a national organization devoted to the protection of faith and freedom and the separation of church and state. It seeks to unite diverse voices in order to challenge extremism and build common ground, echoing the words of renowned author Karen Armstrong who has written that If we want to preserve our humanity, we must make the compassionate voice of religion and morality a vibrant and dynamic force in our polarized world. For more information, please email TIAofMarionCountyFL@gmail.com or call Delphine Herbert at 352-873-9970. Ladies Auxiliary of VFWThe Ladies Auxiliary of the Angela S. Santos VFW Post 4781 will host a program for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. It will be held at the Post hall at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. In 2009 Congress designated 9/11 as a Day of Remembrance and Service. Families of the victims of the attack have started several organizations to honor their loved ones. Allisandra Kellerman started Hometown Hugs. This group sends packages to our men and women in the Armed Forces. In Belleview we have our own group Operation Shoebox. Under the leadership of Mary Harper, this group of dedicated volunteers sends approximately 2,000 packages every month to our military personnel throughout the world. Our Auxiliary has supported this organization by sewing cloth bags, making Christmas stockings, and donating items to be included in their packages. In addition, we give monetary assistance to help with the postage. Our Veterans Family Services Chairperson, Marty Brehm, has a request for our members and the entire community. She wants you to write a thank you card, a thinking of you card, a note, or a letter for our service people. She will deliver this correspondence to Operation Shoebox headquarters. They will put a card in each of the packages they ship in the coming months. We want our soldiers to know that we support them, stand behind them, and appreciate the sacrifices they make every day. You can bring your mail to the 9/11 program, or drop them off at the Post. There will be a box in the canteen marked Mail for the Military. Marty has a goal of 500 pieces of mail! We are depending on all of you to help us reach our goal. Get your family friends and neighbors, to help us make this a great project.

Road construction for the Southwest 42nd Street Flyover project will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 6, and continue for approximately 495 days. Motorists could experience lane closures and minor delays during the construction period. The new, four-lane divided roadway will connect Southwest 27th Avenue (at Southwest 42nd Street) to State Road 200 (at Southwest 40th Avenue). The roadway will include a bridge over Interstate 75, easing traffic congestion through current major thoroughfares. The Reddick-based Commercial Industrial Corp. is managing the $11.9 million project and will maintain proper signage and barricades. The project is anticipated to employ approximately 40 local workers. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes when possible. Adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances may affect construction schedules. Work to begin on extension, flyover PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKBack-to-school bash Ocala West United Methodist Church entertained many children last Saturday with a back-to-school bash at the facility. Above, magician Greg Solomon gets some help with his magic tricks from Isabella Smith. Bottom left, a pair of parents, Jay Glenn and Josh Robertson, help out Solomon. Bottom right, clowns Mike Roppel, Paula Megan and Dotty Baird get ready to host the children, who came in to their room after the magic show. The movie is built around golf, but its about life, from despair into a journey to deep faith. Members of area churches are organizing groups to attend Seven Days in Utopia www.sevendaysinutopia.com at the Marion Theatre when it begins its showing on Sept. 2. Mike McGinnis, member of First Baptist Church of Ocala, and former golf instructor at the College of Central Florida, said his Sunday school class has talked about the book. According to McGinnis, the book and movie have a great message about golf and life, and he encourages everyone to see it. Mark Cummins, pastor of the Church of Hope, has seen the movie. He notes that it has a message of hope, in the tension of broken relationships, leading to the discovery of the purposes and plans that God has for the central characters life. Cummins observes that in the movie the message comes forth that God engages us outside of church, in all the various realms of our lives. The movie has a special meaning for a group of Ocalans who plan to attend the Marion Theatre premier because of its ties to Ocala. Aeronautical engineer/entrepreneur and longtime Ocala resident Sandy Reese, who died Friday, Aug. 12, had a direct connection with the movie and its producer/author David Cook. The two men became business partners in Reeso Putters www.reesoputters.com which Reese designed and engineered. The face-on putters are featured in the movie.
