Event benefits Honor Flight PLEASESEEFLIGHT PAGE3 BY GLORIA OTTEN Ocala I was living on Staten Island, N.Y., at the time of the attacks. I worked in the St. George area, near the ferry terminal, with the city skyline directly in front of us. I went outside to witness the second plane hit. It was very traumatic mentally and heart wrenching. I was very worried for my son-inlaw a firefighter and my stepdaughter and stepson-in-law, both police personnel. They all responded. The good Lord was watching over them that day. Unfortunately, my good friends son-in-law wasnt so lucky, his name was Marc David Sullin, he was an EMT and he was trapped with a large group of firefighters in the second building. That was the group that wasnt found until February of 2002. They all died waiting to be rescued. I attended his memorial. I had just spent that Labor Day weekend at their home barbecue and the time I saw him, he was teaching his young son to catch a baseball. Ill never forget that picture in my mind of a young father and son playing catch in the back yard. I later received a copy of the documentary that was filmed by the French company that was documenting the Fire Department. While watching the film, I learned that the exploding sounds were not chunks of concrete from the buildings, but the bodies of people who threw themselves out of the building when they crashed to the ground. To this day, I cry every time I think of Marc and his son, or when I see anything on TV about that dreadful day. I hope and pray that we never have to witness another disaster of that magnitude. BY DEL WILSON Pine RunIn honor of Laura Marie Ragonese Snik, my niece. I was working for Time Warner Cable in the media department. I was in the office of the traffic person, she had a television in her office. We both stopped talking when we looked up and saw the first plane hit the Tower I just couldnt believe it. I knew something was terribly wrong, we were glued to the television listening, but not believing what we heard. Again, another plane hit. I felt this panic inside. I went to my desk and called my sister, I knew my niece worked in that Tower. This just could not be happening. The whole experience seemed surreal at the time, things started to move in slow motion. My boss was amazing, told me to go home, to check in with my family. I was living in Memphis at the time and my family was in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. I looked on the WMC-TV website and found a person in the News Media department. I e-mailed her to please give me any information that she could explaining about my niece. The media was swamped, they couldnt get any information either. At that time the second Tower imploded. I was think, Oh My God, could Laura possibly still be alive? Did she get out? I needed to get to my sister and niece and nephews, I had to be with my family. My Husband came home from work to be with me. My oldest son was about a half hour from me, we were in constant contact with each other. I was on the phone with my sister telling her that I would be there. I flew out as early as I could. My son decided to drive overnight to get to Pennsylvania the next day. The rest is history, my niece was never found. We had a celebration of her life. It is a day we will never forget, a day. Sadly, this is a wound that wont heal, there is no closure. We dont want anyone to forget. We need to honor all of those people who died that day, to honor those who helped and to honor our country always. BY JUNE DUNAI Ocala We were in a campground in Glacier National Park in Montana. In our motor home, we woke up and turned on the satellite TV and heard all the excitement about the first tower being struck by a plane. There was all kinds of speculation as to what had happened: was it an accident, intentional and, if so, who was responsible? Soon, other events took place as the other tower and the Pentagon were hit and the towers began to collapse. We stopped at other camp sites and told people what had hapPHOTO BY JIM CLARK Readers share memories of 9/11 The South Marion Citizen asked readers to submit their memories of Sept. 11, 2001.

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.

I n 1978 Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The days purpose is to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their childrens children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer. Wandering through Pun Alley we run into some funny stories that go along with being grandparents and make us glad we can turn the little darlins back to their parents after a day or two. College Pedigree A grandmother was pushing her grandchild around Walmart in a buggy. Each time she put something in the basket, she would say, And heres something for you, Diploma or, This will make a cute little outfit for you, Diploma and so on. Eventually, a bewildered shopper who had heard all this, finally asked, Why do you keep calling your grandchild Diploma? The grandmother replied, I sent my daughter to college and this is what she came home with. Old Grey Mare Hair A little girl was watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She inquisitively asked, Why are some of your hairs white, Mom? Her mother replied, Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white. The little girl thought about this for a while and then said, Momma, how come all of grandmas hairs are white? Foolproof sign When Toms grandson asked how old he was, Tom teasingly replied, Im not sure. Look in your underwear, Grandpa, the grandson advised, Mine says Im 4 to 6. Old fables My grandfather started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now hes 97 years old and we dont know where he is. They say grandchildren brighten up the home. Thats right, they never turn off the lights. An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly. Grandparents are people who come to your house, spoil the children, and then go home. Joans grandkids believe shes the oldest thing in the world. And after two or three hours with them, she believes it, too. If your baby is beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, and is an angel all the time, youre the grandma. Just about the time a woman thinks her work is done, she becomes a grandmother. Ive got nothing against grandkids. I just follow the advice on every bottle in my medicine cabinet, Keep away from children. Among the things that are quite easy, even simple, for a child to operate are the grandparents. Grandchildren dont make a man feel old; its the knowledge that hes married to a grandmother. Would-be boasts Two little boys were talking. One little boy turned to the other boy and said, My grandfather has a wooden leg. The other little boy replied, So what? My grandma has a cedar chest. Strange view After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse before washing her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious her patience grew thin. Finally, she put a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, Who was that? What? Now, Ms. Lyons, said the doctor, you say you have shooting pains in your neck, dizziness, and constant nausea. Just for the record, how old are you? Why, Im going to be 49 on my next birthday, the woman replied indignantly. Hmmm, muttered the doctor, Got a slight loss of memory, too. Dj vu all over again The daughter said, I really appreciate you and Dad watching my kids today, Mom. Later, Grandma said, Im really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our kids were babies. Now, with grandkids, Im exhausted all over again! Grandpa replied, Its to be expected. Why do you think they call folks our age re-tired? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

(marioncarecouncil.com) FLIGHT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 pened, as many were in tents and campers without TV and had no idea what was going on. We lived in the motor home full time; that's why we had TV. After deciding to start back toward Florida, where we usually spent the winter. We stopped in the town of West Glacier to get money and were told the machines were not working. Why? New York! Oh no, how would we get home? But down the road a few hours later, things were working normally. All the way back to Florida, in small towns along the way, we noticed signs all over town saying "God Bless America" and similar things, and flags were flying everywhere--signs of patriotism not seen before or since. Many people were flying American flags on their cars or in windows. How things have changed in 10 years! BY PEG CORKUM Ocala Wake up and when the feet touch the floor, turn on the bedside radio to catch the daily news and weather. This is how my dat started, not only over the years I went to work, but has carried over to my retirement years as well. 9/11/01 started as usual, but when I heard the report that a plane had smashed into one of the World Trade Center buildings, I immediately hurried to a TV. As I sat and watched, I recalled the many times I had flown from Boston to NYC and the awesome experience of weaving our way through the myriad of skyscrapers, and how thankful I was for each safe trip. Suddenly things became surreal another plane appeared and I watched in disbelief as it flew directory into the other WTC building. Disbelief is an understatement. Was this another Pearl Harbor? God help us! I think the most surreal moment was when building 1 and then building 2 just collapsed into a mountain of rubble. How could this be? Is this a modern-day Orson Wells sick idea of a joke. Unfortunately for the USA, it wasnt a joke, any more than the day President Kennedy was assassinated. 9/11/01 remains vivid in my mind and I relive it every time I think of it. We did rally round and come together as Americans should, didnt we. But for those who might have forgotten, perhaps we should play reruns on TV several times a year, just as a reminder of what can happen again. United we stand, divided we fall. My prayer: God, please bless America. BY RITA WOCH Ocala We were in Arkansas to celebrate the birth of our grandson, Joseph. We turned on CNN to see what was going on in the world and got the surprise of our lives. We watched as an airplane crashed into the first Twin Tower and I said, "This can't be happening. It must be a promo for a new movie." Needless to say, it was happening and it kept on happening and it was real. We watched all day and were horrified at the destruction and the deaths of the teams that were sent in to help. We will never forget that day and feel that it is the day that our country lost its innocence. We will never be the same. MEMORIES CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 United Way of Marion County kicked off its community fundraising efforts on Sept. 1 by loading community members and supporters onto three charter buses and taking them on tours of funded agency partners. Participants were able to see United Way in action as they visited Heart of Florida Health Center, Salvation Army and Boys & Girls Club of Marion County. We talk about the needs all the time, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. But there is nothUnited Way takes bus tour of funded agency partners ing like seeing it in person. We are excited to be able to bring people to see the results happen before their eyes. By doing this we are giving people a call to action to make a difference in the community, by either donating through the campaign, advocating or volunteering around the areas of Education, Income and Health. We are focused on getting people more engaged with our work and its more than just giving, Quinlan said. Volunteer campaign cochairs, Marion County Public Schools Deputy Superintendent Diana Greene and Publix Super Markets District Manager John Goff, announced a 2011 campaign goal of $2.1 million. This amount is slightly above what was raised last year. To date, 15 percent has already been raised from the 20 Pacesetter Companies that started their workplace campaigns in July and from other early donations. In these challenging times it is easy to expect our neighbor to step up and help. Most likely your neighbor is looking for you to do the same, Goff said. Each of us must do our part to help Marion County move forward towards recovery. The United Way is committed to engaging people is different ways, Greene said. Giving financially to the campaign is a huge part, but we also need volunteers and advocates to help us accomplish our community goals. To get involved, visit www.uwmc.org for more information. United Way of Marion County is the most comprehensive health and human services charity and the largest provider of funds to the communitys most critical health and human service programs. United Way filled a bus for a local tour. The organization partners with local businesses, government, other charities and individuals to increase awareness of local health and human service issues and to inspire hope, provide options, and create possibilities for the people in our community.

Friday, September 9, 2011 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, September 9, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Mars, your ruling planet, helps you deal with career challenges in a way that reflects some of your own hidden strengths. This impresses some important decision-makers. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your strong Bovine will, combined with your romantic nature (you are ruled by Venus), helps turn a romance with a potential for problems into one with more-positive possibilities. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Mercurys influence creates some unsettling moments, but nothing that you cant live with. Youll soon learn more about that major change that is about to be revealed. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Opportunities for you are like the phases of the Moon: constantly appearing and reappearing. So, cheer up. The opportunity you think you let slip by will be replaced by another. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) An opportunity that you hoped would open up for you remains closed. Stop wasting time scratching at it. Something else youll like will soon make itself apparent and accessible. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Youll soon hear some positive feedback for all the hard work you recently put into a project. A Pisces could soon swim into your personal life. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Someone whose friendship you felt you had to write off will try to revive it. What you do is up to you. But dont do it without giving it considerable thought. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A job-related plan might need to be reworked to allow for changes. Lucky for you that Saturn remains a strong influence that can help you focus on getting it done right. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good time to move into areas of selfdiscovery. You might be surprised about who you really are and how you really relate to those around you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Expect to confront someone who will make an unwelcome request. Stand by your resolve to do the right thing no matter what persuasion might be offered. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A friendly competition could become more contentious than you expected. Take time out to discuss the reasons behind this unexpected change, and act accordingly. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You have a wonderful mind for solving mysteries, so you should feel confident about solving the one developing very close to you. An unlikely source offers help. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre a great host or hostess. You love being with people, and youre very good about planning all sorts of social events that bring folks together. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Lets keep the pace moving and finish in that time. Carol Anns Corner Do you have a back ache, neck and shoulder aches or swollen ankles? Have you been attributing things to the perks of getting older? If so, I have a new perspective to offer you. I have heard these complaints so often, and have some of my own to contribute, that I started analyzing the situation. The folks with these problems are the same folks who say that they spend a large part of each day at the computer, or reading or doing puzzles, etc. Have you taken a look at the position you assume at the computer or while doing other sedentary pursuits? I have and have decided that my backache is almost certainly due to, or aggravated by, working on the computer while propped up in bed with my legs out straight. This is not an appropriate position. You are supposed to sit with your knees bent. I urge everyone to take a look at how you are sitting, and how long you are sitting. Are you putting excessive strain on a particular part of your anatomy? It is so easy to fall into bad postural habits and then spend many hours in that position each day. Lets all consider what we are doing to our bodies. Remember the old Pogo motto, We have met the enemy and it is us. Send items for this column to democratcarol@deccacable.com. Friday, September 9, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com W eve beaten a hole in our drum writing so often about political pork earmarks. Another category of frivolous federal spending is earmarks for eggheads. Weve neglected examples of federal funding for goofy grants and silly studies an annual ritual of granting money for research about which no one seems to ask: Is that important? Is it necessary? With urging from global health groups and womens organizations, federal agencies are funding a number of studies of male contraceptives which reduce or interrupt sperm production. The goal is to make condoms and vasectomies obsolete, replaced by hormone therapy, scrotum injections, or implants. Drug companies arent funding the studies, but they cant wait to sell contraceptive pills and potions to males as well as females. Getting government funding for research is a competitive sport, sometimes tainted with budget stuffing and political connections. With at least 15 agencies conducting annual grab-bag competitions for taxpayer dollars, its a challenge to keep track of who gets the goodies and why. Funding to research heart disease, cancer, and dementia among the elderly is noble and understandable, but can we justify research to prevent aging? If mice had a union they would insist scientists stop feeding them applesauce to determine whether they might live longer on an apple diet and without a power treadmill. Another subject of endless interest is air. Researchers say we shouldnt be breathing air which sticks to our windows, but they havent come up with an alternative. A succession of studies has advised us that our dirty air is bad for childrens lungs and will continue to be a problem. Did we need persistent, expensive reminders, or are we just being hustled into spending taxpayer money to support a cause? During spending discussions earlier this year, Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, targeted a few silly studies his committee felt should not be funded. Rep. Issa was promptly fried by editorials in the New York Times. In some political and editorial circles the term government reform is considered blasphemy. Here are a few of the programs targeted as ridiculous or wasteful: #1 None of the funds may be used to study the impact of integral yoga on hot flashes in www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 9, 2011 T his coming weekend is a time for solemn remembering of an event that everyone who was older than a toddler will recall forever the attack on America by Osama bin Ladens troops, including two planes crashing into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and another into a field in Pennsylvania. In that one, we all remember, the passengers revolted against the hijackers and gave their lives to stop a further attack on Washington, D.C. It was Sept. 11, 2001, and we all recall what we were doing that day. For me, I was at a newspaper where I didnt have to be at work until about 11 a.m., and I was at home, eating breakfast and watching the Today program. It was late in the show that the first word came over that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. Shortly thereafter, the TV showed the towers with smoke billowing out of one of them. Then, suddenly, you saw the second plane come crashing in, and viewers knew, sometimes even before the commentators, that this was deliberate. It was no accident. That led to one of the most dramatic days in the history of American television, as networks scrambled to get the story right. We watched as word drifted in that another plane crashed into the Pentagon in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. Eventually we heard about the crash of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania, but still it took quite a while to link this plane to the attacks. Now we watch the well edited specials on various TV networks, including the ones Ive been seeing on the National Geographic channel. All the information is there, neatly packaged into a series of specials about two hours long, each. As time goes by and we see these news clips, its easy to forget the feeling of the unknown that swept through the nation that day. We knew there was a massive loss of life as soon as we saw the towers collapse, but we had no idea who was behind the terrorism. We had no knowledge of how widespread these attacks were, or were going to be. Thats why every plane in the U.S. was ordered to land within a few hours of the attacks. No one knew if any others were carrying suicide hijackers. There were gut-wrenching tales from families of some of the victims. Some of those on the planes were able to get cell phone calls out to their loved ones, the last time their voices would be heard. From those calls we eventually got more information on what went on aboard the aircraft. For the families on the ground, those calls were devastating, and I would imagine they are haunted by them to this day. There was heroism of all types that was eventually made known. At the towers, there were workers who helped rescue their friends, only to die themselves. There were the firefighters and police who dedicated themselves to trying to save people. Some of them made it out, many didnt. There were the people on Flight 93, whose cell calls made it apparent to those on the ground that they were going to try to get control of the plane. They apparently never did, but they did prevent the aircraft from crashing to another building, probably the U.S. Capitol in D.C. And there was the flight attendant named Betty, who was on the air phone to her supervisors as her plane hit the tower. She provided some crucial information, being able to tell those on the ground what seats the hijackers were occupying. With that information, examination of the manifests made it easy to pinpoint who the hijackers were. However, back on Sept. 11, 2001, we had no idea about a lot of this. I had to get a small daily local newspaper out, but like everyone else, I found information scarce as the day unfolded. There were more rumors than facts. We were worried where the president was, and if he was safe. People old enough to remember will tell you that the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was just as bad, or worse. But the difference is technology. There were no cell phones, no live TV. Thats what made it hit home a lot harder for Americans in 2001. There is a listing in todays paper of upcoming memorial events. Please take time to attend at least one. A lot of Americans gave their lives that day its only right that we show support.

B ack quite a few years ago, there was a movie called Home Alone. At the end, the bratty little kid who captured a couple of burglars had a part in the subplot. He got his scary next door neighbor reunited with his son, enabling the older man to finally spend some time with his granddaughter. It was a great message about family love conquering other problems. Lost in all the memorials and remembrances that Sept. 11 brings, on the 10-year anniversary of the terrible attacks, is a celebration that occurs every year on the second Sunday in September. This year, Sept. 11 is Grandparents Day. Its a day that everyone who has a living grandparent should remember to honor those relatives who have sacrificed much to raise their children, who then produced the grandchildren who make up the familys bloodlines. Something that has changed over the years is evident today many grandparents are much more than that. Many are raising their grandchildren, for whatever reason, because that task has not been undertaken successfully by the childrens parents. In this part of Marion County, we probably have more grandparents per capita than many other places in the country. Nearly all these people want to have contact with their grandchildren, and todays celebration is the perfect chance for the younger generation to create some goodwill with grandma and grandpa. Parents, you can help, by allowing your children to contact the older relatives. Make a special effort to point out to them that many people arent lucky enough to have a grandma or grandpa still alive. Were not suggesting that the anniversary of 9/11 be ignored. But we do feel that the co-existent celebration should be remembered. Grandparents deserve to be remembered on their day.

Marriage: What is it? What should it be? That which we call marriage has been around for as long as man has formed community. According to the American Heritage Dictionary the obsolete definition is the formal declaration or contract by which act a man and a woman join in wedlock. The more recent definition is stated as the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc. This is where the contradiction occurs. Marriage is foremost a legal, civil union between people. Tax laws, inheritance laws, community property, medical decisions between partners are just some examples that support the fact that marriage is a legal civil union. Marriage requires a license from some level of government whether the ceremony is performed by someone authorized under civil authority or by a representative of a church approved by the same civil authority. Dissolution of a marriage is not a religious action. Divorce is solely a civil legal action and so should marriage be. Some want it to be otherwise: that marriage is a religious act to be defined only by religious beliefs. Simply put that marriage is only between one man and one woman. The contract of marriage was taken over by religion as a means of control. In some religions such as the Roman Catholic Church marriage is a sacrament to be entered into by two baptized individuals for the purpose of procreation and mutual support. These two different outlooks on marriage is one of the blurring factors in the separation of church and state. It is time to sever this mixed view of marriage and make it truly a civil act. There is one simple solution. All marriages will be performed by civil authority only. If you want to have this union blessed to comply with your religious beliefs, you may have that ceremony performed as well. However it will have no legal standing. This will stop the conflict between different groups in our society. Marriage will become for everyone a legal civil union, defined as society sees fit and not by any non-secular group. Keep true to the Constitution and separate church and state in this matter once and for all. James Merrick Ocala Running, not qualifiedI am going to run for Congress, then the Senate, and then for president. Everyone will think I am well qualified. I wont be qualified to do anything except take care of myself which I will do like everyone else in politics. I have been studying how people get elected and now its my turn. A chicken in every pot. Did he mean food every day or once a week? No one knows what that means but it sounds good and won an election. I will lower taxes. Thats always a good one. Anyone can lower taxes by cutting services so people end up spending more. I will fight for you in Washington against the vested interests. As soon as they are elected they are one of the vested interests. I will always look clean and well groomed for those who vote for looks. I will quote the Bible to make a good impression. Nobody will kiss more babies than me when the cameras are on. I will kiss the mothers when the cameras are off. Today, people dont check candidates. No one uses the computer to type a name and complaints. I am a guaranteed winner who will follow the actions of something called some kind of party. Is it coffee? Im not sure. I will receive grateful donations from corporations who no longer pay hundreds of billions in taxes under the belief that they provide jobs. Do you know anyone who got one? Alan Gold Ocala Where are the jobs? As CEOs ask, where are the jobs for the workers of America. They dont remember that in the past these same CEOs sent these jobs overseas because the costs are lower and the profits are higher. We can blame these CEOs who made these decisions in the name of company profits that keep their stock holders happy with a high rate of return on their investments. These investors wanted profits to increase their wealth regardless of the costs to the workers who made the products. Is whats good for the investors also good for the country? We are starting to see the results of this short sighted thinking of taking jobs away from America and giving this work to foreign countries. As an example in the news recently it was noteworthy to read that Honda is building a manufacturing plant in Mexico to produce their automobiles. How long will it be before the American Honda manufacturing plants in the south are closed because these automobiles can be built cheaper in Mexico. The CEOs and stockholders have been taking jobs from America since the early 70s and we are now at a point where there are no crumbs left for the American worker. If you remember just a couple of years ago the Republicans worked tirelessly to allow our American automobile industry to go bankrupt. The Democrats only won this battle in Congress because they held the majority at that time but now that Republicans have taken over you can forget about protecting the American workers. We must keep the American automobile industry relevant in producing great cars and trucks for here and around the world. Lets remember this lesson at the next national election. Jerry Segovis Ocala Why blame the GOP?Why is it that liberals insist on blaming previous Republican administrations to justify the problems America is in today? This strategy hasnt worked in the past and it certainly wont work in the future yet liberals continue to do so. Instead, they should admit that problems do exist and propose and undertake ways to get them resolved. In the letter Nothing good ever came out of Texas (Aug. 26, 2011), the writer states that the president doesnt have the power as do the members of congress. I agree with that statement. However, the president must present himself to the world and too the country as a leader; as an inspiration. These things are not being done. The writer then says that Bush squandered $19 trillion dollars. Huh? Dont know which history book that figure came from; I certainly cant identify it. Now, here are some facts using some easily verifiable figures: When the Democraticcontrolled congress took power in January, 2007 while, incidentally, Bush was still at the helm the federal budget deficit was $248 billion, it has now grown to $1.645 trillion. The Dow closed at around 12,600; it then began its downward-trend to about 7,060. It is now 11,600 but once again is in a downwardtrend. Unemployment was 4.6 percent Bushs economic policies set a record of 52 months of job creation; unemployment is now hovering around 10 percent. America had experienced 54 straight months of economic growth look at the mess were in today; which would have been much worse if John Boehner and company hadnt won the House in 2010. You liberals can tune-up your El Toro Poo Poo scoopers and continue searching for imagined Republican doo-doo. We conservatives will embrace the positive things required to restore this great Republic to its original splendor.

Oh, by the way! Your next president will most likely be a conservative one; you can almost bet the ranch on it! He could even be from Texas! Joe OHara On Top of the World LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 BY JEAN TOAN Special to the Citizen Unions were born from the gross abuse of the robber barons who controlled the Industrial Revolution with selfish tactics of low wages, long hours, child employment and no pensions available except for themselves. Uniting workers together with the use of strikes would strangle business even though it would inflict hardships on themselves was the beginning of unions. Furthermore, workers paying into union funds would make available funds for the workers in time of need. This stranglehold on business would cause negotiations between management and unions. Wages would improve, pensions for the workers were instituted and paid vacations were bargained into the agreements. All this was needed for a fair settlement between management and workers. But here we go again: With enough time and the insatiable power certain humans seek, the unions would then become the uncontrolled power behind industrial and business outcomes, striking because of their demand for increase in hourly pay for all workers, disregarding a workers merit for such an increase, time paid for illnesses and paid whether one is ill or not. When quitting time comes every day, mass migration out of plants without putting any extra little of ones own time. All these excessive demands caused the increase to the cost of products. Management has a difficult time promoting able and willing workers. The unions want their input in the promotion based on the longevity of workers in the union pool. That does not increase the efficiency of production. Unions started to be controlled by robber barons of their own. Big salaries and bonuses for the union boss, criminal involvement causing the disappearance of individuals. What happened to Jimmy Hoffa? The modern robber barons: I will never forget a statement made by David Sarnoff who was CEO of RCA at the peak of RCAs success as the electronic giant greatly responsible for the advent of television. He said that The capitalistic and free enterprise system brings out the best in products and the worst in men. And when the shenanigans caught up with these worst in men, the walls collapsed: Jeff Skilling and Ken Lay in the Enron scandal. Edward Liddy of AIG, in the Bonusgate scandal Lloyd Bankfein of Goldman Sachs, in the Financial Crisis & Civil Fraud lawsuit, Richard Fuld of Lehman Brothers, in the Bankruptcy scandal. Ex-Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain resigned from Bank of America under pressure after reports he rushed billions of dollars in bonuses to Merrill employees in his final days as CEO, while the brokerage was suffering huge losses and just before Bank of America took it over. These are a few of the recent robber barons. A personal first hand knowledge of the following event: I worked from 1998 to GUEST COLUMN 2000 for a company called ACT Manufacturing in Corinth Mississippi, which was in the business of Contract Manufacturing. ACT was doing quite well, manufacturing multiple types of electronic subassemblies for other companies who were Design Engineering companies. ACT was then bought out by a company whose CEO wanted to be in the forefront of contract manufacturing, and bought out other contract manufacturing as well as other electronic firms, all on borrowed money from various financial institutions. The paying back of those loans fell behind the profit of the various companies he had bought including ACT. In fact some of our suppliers would no longer supply needed electronic components because ACT could not pay them on time because of the exodus of profits to pay the loans. The greed for being the Big Baron of contract manufacturing caused the crash and bankruptcies. ACT went down as well as others, with loss of jobs for many people. How many more did we have before those listed above? How many more are we going to have after them? Management vs. the unions Saul Oresky to lead services at Congregation Beth Israel of OcalaSaul Oresky, from Silver Spring, Maryland, will again be the service leader for Congregation Beth Israel for the High Holiday services to be held at Collins Center, Building 300, 9401 State Road 200 in Ocala.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10, prospective hunters can purchase permits for these hunts on the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/HogHunt/ Permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, or until they are sold out. The cost is $50 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. They also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the local hunt will be held: McGregor Smith Scout Reservation, Citrus County, Dec. 6-8 and Jan. 24-26.

We have come a long way, but I am wondering if we have gone the right way. My wife and I were thinking about this the other night and she startled me with a question. Most of the time she just startles me, but this time she had substance in the form of a question. I wonder, she said rather thoughtfully, where all the heroes are today? At first, I did not quite get her drift, and so I queried her on the subject. First, I was thinking of all of those movie heroes that we hear about so often. Perhaps she was thinking of Superman or Batman or some such hero. These days, most of our heroes are manufactured in Hollywood and have no real affinity for the average persons life. One of the things that amaze me about Hollywood is when they produce their infamous reality shows; there is very little reality to it. The only reality about these shows is that makes real money for those who produce it. I could live with that reality. Hollywood cannot do anything without pizzazz to dazzle the imagination of the intellectually starved populace. Then my mind drifted back to my wifes question. Those heroes of 9/11, she responded. Whatever happened to all of those heroes that stepped to the front when the need called for it? Then I knew what she was talking about. A hero is someone who does ordinary work under abnormal or dangerous conditions. Ten years ago, when our country was attacked these heroes stepped forth, did their job and then stepped back into the shadows of obscurity almost as quickly as they came. Many of those heroes gave the ultimate sacrifice, their lives. Not thinking about their own well-being, they put their lives on the line to save someone they didnt even know. Many of these heroes died doing their heroic deed. Some are, 10 years later, suffering physical consequences from their acts of bravery. Just what is a hero? A hero is neither a Republican nor a Democrat. A hero is simply an American who does his or her job when the need arises without any thought of political affiliation. I am rather tired of the political minutia that is paralyzing our country today. Let me say that I believe our country is bigger than all the politicians in our country today. If only we get the media to understand that all these politicians are simply caricatures of some political ideology and not real people at all. Politicians are Washingtons version of a reality show that has no basis whatsoever in reality. A hero never blows his or her own horn and consequently many heroes fade into the background and are never acknowledged or even thanked. After all, a hero never looks for thanks; a hero only does his or her job to the best of his or her ability. Sometimes a hero only does one heroic action in his life. Hes a hero nevertheless. A true American hero does his or her job when called upon and then fades into the background so that some politician can step forward and take the credit. That seems to be the way politicians operate these days; the credit system. When something goes right, they take credit for it. If something goes wrong, they give the credit to someone else. Im ready for the politician to step forward with cash on the barrelhead. I just have one simple question. When you are in trouble, whom do you want? The real American hero or some politician any politician? When the aircraft was smashing into their target, where were the politicians? When the buildings were collapsing and lives were being destroyed, where were the politicians? Back in the day, the politician was a servant of the people, sent to Washington, D.C., to do the peoples business. That day is far over and probably never will return. Today, these politicians have the idea that we, the people, are to serve them. After all, they know whats best for us. These politicians, who cannot take care of their own lives or their own business or even pay their own income tax, are fully qualified to take care of our business. Is it any wonder our country is in the mess its in today? A real hero is someone who puts someone elses welfare ahead of his or her own. They bravely put themselves in harms way to save someone they may not even know. Perhaps, and I know this thought probably comes from Mars, we ought to stop sending politicians to Washington and start sending heroes. Another kind of hero is needed in our country today. That hero is the one who will pray for our country and ask God to help us get out of the mess were in. The formula for this is found in the Old Testament. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV). In 10 years, we have tried everything else, and everything has failed. Why not try God? The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

First, do you really want to read about a book someone almost wrote? And does an author whos a psychobiographer seem to promise plenty of dense psycho-babble? Finally, even if youre a devoted fan of the late writer, do you really want to see him exposed at his very worst? In the released segments of the unfinished work Answered Prayers, Capote reveals himself as a rotten friend, a betrayer of secrets, a heartless inflictor of pain all the while maintaining an amused distance from his own appalling conduct: He scorched the rich and famous, printed details told to him in confidence by socialites and jet-setters who thought they were his friends, who thought he could be trusted, who never suspected he would betray them. The swans he had collected were the crme de la crme of society C.Z. Guest, Peggy Guggenheim, Babe Paley, Gloria Vanderbilt the list goes on. He was certain this loyal following would smolder for a bit but then return to him. He was dead wrong: Erstwhile friends did more than whisper. They blacklisted him; shut him out of their lives forever. Why did he embark on something so reckless, Schultz asks and attempts to answer. Was he getting back at his beautiful, indifferent mother Lillie Mae, or everyone who had rejected him, or those who, like Ann Woodward, had called him a fag? Or was it a more personal attack on the swans? They had adored him but treated him in some ways like a cute Pekinese on a satin pillow. Without his followers Truman Capote sank into depression, drank heavily and consumed large quantities of drugs. His magnificent brain began to shrink and doctors gave him only months to live unless he quit drinking. Ushered off talk shows when he became incoherent, his world, like his brain, began to shrink. A loyal friend to the end, Joanne Carson, ex-wife of Johnny, cradled him in her arms and told him she loved him as he lay dying.

We have come a long way, but I am wondering if we have gone the right way. My wife and I were thinking about this the other night and she startled me with a question. Most of the time she just startles me, but this time she had substance in the form of a question. I wonder, she said rather thoughtfully, where all the heroes are today? At first, I did not quite get her drift, and so I queried her on the subject. First, I was thinking of all of those movie heroes that we hear about so often. Perhaps she was thinking of Superman or Batman or some such hero. These days, most of our heroes are manufactured in Hollywood and have no real affinity for the average persons life. One of the things that amaze me about Hollywood is when they produce their infamous reality shows; there is very little reality to it. The only reality about these shows is that makes real money for those who produce it. I could live with that reality. Hollywood cannot do anything without pizzazz to dazzle the imagination of the intellectually starved populace. Then my mind drifted back to my wifes question. Those heroes of 9/11, she responded. Whatever happened to all of those heroes that stepped to the front when the need called for it? Then I knew what she was talking about. A hero is someone who does ordinary work under abnormal or dangerous conditions. Ten years ago, when our country was attacked these heroes stepped forth, did their job and then stepped back into the shadows of obscurity almost as quickly as they came. Many of those heroes gave the ultimate sacrifice, their lives. Not thinking about their own well-being, they put their lives on the line to save someone they didnt even know. Many of these heroes died doing their heroic deed. Some are, 10 years later, suffering physical consequences from their acts of bravery. Just what is a hero? A hero is neither a Republican nor a Democrat. A hero is simply an American who does his or her job when the need arises without any thought of political affiliation. I am rather tired of the political minutia that is paralyzing our country today. Let me say that I believe our country is bigger than all the politicians in our country today. If only we get the media to understand that all these politicians are simply caricatures of some political ideology and not real people at all. Politicians are Washingtons version of a reality show that has no basis whatsoever in reality. A hero never blows his or her own horn and consequently many heroes fade into the background and are never acknowledged or even thanked. After all, a hero never looks for thanks; a hero only does his or her job to the best of his or her ability. Sometimes a hero only does one heroic action in his life. Hes a hero nevertheless. A true American hero does his or her job when called upon and then fades into the background so that some politician can step forward and take the credit. That seems to be the way politicians operate these days; the credit system. When something goes right, they take credit for it. If something goes wrong, they give the credit to someone else. Im ready for the politician to step forward with cash on the barrelhead. I just have one simple question. When you are in trouble, whom do you want? The real American hero or some politician any politician? When the aircraft was smashing into their target, where were the politicians? When the buildings were collapsing and lives were being destroyed, where were the politicians? Back in the day, the politician was a servant of the people, sent to Washington, D.C., to do the peoples business. That day is far over and probably never will return. Today, these politicians have the idea that we, the people, are to serve them. After all, they know whats best for us. These politicians, who cannot take care of their own lives or their own business or even pay their own income tax, are fully qualified to take care of our business. Is it any wonder our country is in the mess its in today? A real hero is someone who puts someone elses welfare ahead of his or her own. They bravely put themselves in harms way to save someone they may not even know. Perhaps, and I know this thought probably comes from Mars, we ought to stop sending politicians to Washington and start sending heroes. Another kind of hero is needed in our country today. That hero is the one who will pray for our country and ask God to help us get out of the mess were in. The formula for this is found in the Old Testament. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV).

Oh, by the way! Your next president will most likely be a conservative one; you can almost bet the ranch on it! He could even be from Texas! Joe OHara On Top of the World LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 BY JEAN TOAN Special to the Citizen Unions were born from the gross abuse of the robber barons who controlled the Industrial Revolution with selfish tactics of low wages, long hours, child employment and no pensions available except for themselves. Uniting workers together with the use of strikes would strangle business even though it would inflict hardships on themselves was the beginning of unions. Furthermore, workers paying into union funds would make available funds for the workers in time of need. This stranglehold on business would cause negotiations between management and unions. Wages would improve, pensions for the workers were instituted and paid vacations were bargained into the agreements. All this was needed for a fair settlement between management and workers. But here we go again: With enough time and the insatiable power certain humans seek, the unions would then become the uncontrolled power behind industrial and business outcomes, striking because of their demand for increase in hourly pay for all workers, disregarding a workers merit for such an increase, time paid for illnesses and paid whether one is ill or not. When quitting time comes every day, mass migration out of plants without putting any extra little of ones own time. All these excessive demands caused the increase to the cost of products. Management has a difficult time promoting able and willing workers. The unions want their input in the promotion based on the longevity of workers in the union pool. That does not increase the efficiency of production. Unions started to be controlled by robber barons of their own. Big salaries and bonuses for the union boss, criminal involvement causing the disappearance of individuals. What happened to Jimmy Hoffa? The modern robber barons: I will never forget a statement made by David Sarnoff who was CEO of RCA at the peak of RCAs success as the electronic giant greatly responsible for the advent of television. He said that The capitalistic and free enterprise system brings out the best in products and the worst in men. And when the shenanigans caught up with these worst in men, the walls collapsed: Jeff Skilling and Ken Lay in the Enron scandal. Edward Liddy of AIG, in the Bonusgate scandal Lloyd Bankfein of Goldman Sachs, in the Financial Crisis & Civil Fraud lawsuit, Richard Fuld of Lehman Brothers, in the Bankruptcy scandal. Ex-Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain resigned from Bank of America under pressure after reports he rushed billions of dollars in bonuses to Merrill employees in his final days as CEO, while the brokerage was suffering huge losses and just before Bank of America took it over. These are a few of the recent robber barons. A personal first hand knowledge of the following event: I worked from 1998 to GUEST COLUMN 2000 for a company called ACT Manufacturing in Corinth Mississippi, which was in the business of Contract Manufacturing. ACT was doing quite well, manufacturing multiple types of electronic subassemblies for other companies who were Design Engineering companies. ACT was then bought out by a company whose CEO wanted to be in the forefront of contract manufacturing, and bought out other contract manufacturing as well as other electronic firms, all on borrowed money from various financial institutions. The paying back of those loans fell behind the profit of the various companies he had bought including ACT. In fact some of our suppliers would no longer supply needed electronic components because ACT could not pay them on time because of the exodus of profits to pay the loans. The greed for being the Big Baron of contract manufacturing caused the crash and bankruptcies. ACT went down as well as others, with loss of jobs for many people. How many more did we have before those listed above? How many more are we going to have after them? Management vs. the unions Saul Oresky to lead services at Congregation Beth Israel of OcalaSaul Oresky, from Silver Spring, Maryland, will again be the service leader for Congregation Beth Israel for the High Holiday services to be held at Collins Center, Building 300, 9401 State Road 200 in Ocala.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10, prospective hunters can purchase permits for these hunts on the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/HogHunt/ Permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, or until they are sold out. The cost is $50 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. They also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the local hunt will be held: McGregor Smith Scout Reservation, Citrus County, Dec. 6-8 and Jan. 24-26. District to hold hog hunts, permits will be available online 00092TO W i s d o Family Medicine Wisdo is Welcoming NEW PATIENTS!

Marriage: What is it? What should it be? That which we call marriage has been around for as long as man has formed community. According to the American Heritage Dictionary the obsolete definition is the formal declaration or contract by which act a man and a woman join in wedlock. The more recent definition is stated as the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc. This is where the contradiction occurs. Marriage is foremost a legal, civil union between people. Tax laws, inheritance laws, community property, medical decisions between partners are just some examples that support the fact that marriage is a legal civil union. Marriage requires a license from some level of government whether the ceremony is performed by someone authorized under civil authority or by a representative of a church approved by the same civil authority. Dissolution of a marriage is not a religious action. Divorce is solely a civil legal action and so should marriage be. Some want it to be otherwise: that marriage is a religious act to be defined only by religious beliefs. Simply put that marriage is only between one man and one woman. The contract of marriage was taken over by religion as a means of control. In some religions such as the Roman Catholic Church marriage is a sacrament to be entered into by two baptized individuals for the purpose of procreation and mutual support. These two different outlooks on marriage is one of the blurring factors in the separation of church and state. It is time to sever this mixed view of marriage and make it truly a civil act. There is one simple solution. All marriages will be performed by civil authority only. If you want to have this union blessed to comply with your religious beliefs, you may have that ceremony performed as well. However it will have no legal standing. This will stop the conflict between different groups in our society. Marriage will become for everyone a legal civil union, defined as society sees fit and not by any non-secular group. Keep true to the Constitution and separate church and state in this matter once and for all. James Merrick Ocala Running, not qualifiedI am going to run for Congress, then the Senate, and then for president. Everyone will think I am well qualified. I wont be qualified to do anything except take care of myself which I will do like everyone else in politics. I have been studying how people get elected and now its my turn. A chicken in every pot. Did he mean food every day or once a week? No one knows what that means but it sounds good and won an election. I will lower taxes. Thats always a good one. Anyone can lower taxes by cutting services so people end up spending more. I will fight for you in Washington against the vested interests. As soon as they are elected they are one of the vested interests. I will always look clean and well groomed for those who vote for looks. I will quote the Bible to make a good impression. Nobody will kiss more babies than me when the cameras are on. I will kiss the mothers when the cameras are off. Today, people dont check candidates. No one uses the computer to type a name and complaints. I am a guaranteed winner who will follow the actions of something called some kind of party. Is it coffee? Im not sure. I will receive grateful donations from corporations who no longer pay hundreds of billions in taxes under the belief that they provide jobs. Do you know anyone who got one? Alan Gold Ocala Where are the jobs? As CEOs ask, where are the jobs for the workers of America. They dont remember that in the past these same CEOs sent these jobs overseas because the costs are lower and the profits are higher. We can blame these CEOs who made these decisions in the name of company profits that keep their stock holders happy with a high rate of return on their investments. These investors wanted profits to increase their wealth regardless of the costs to the workers who made the products. Is whats good for the investors also good for the country? We are starting to see the results of this short sighted thinking of taking jobs away from America and giving this work to foreign countries. As an example in the news recently it was noteworthy to read that Honda is building a manufacturing plant in Mexico to produce their automobiles. How long will it be before the American Honda manufacturing plants in the south are closed because these automobiles can be built cheaper in Mexico. The CEOs and stockholders have been taking jobs from America since the early 70s and we are now at a point where there are no crumbs left for the American worker. If you remember just a couple of years ago the Republicans worked tirelessly to allow our American automobile industry to go bankrupt. The Democrats only won this battle in Congress because they held the majority at that time but now that Republicans have taken over you can forget about protecting the American workers. We must keep the American automobile industry relevant in producing great cars and trucks for here and around the world. Lets remember this lesson at the next national election. Jerry Segovis Ocala Why blame the GOP?Why is it that liberals insist on blaming previous Republican administrations to justify the problems America is in today? This strategy hasnt worked in the past and it certainly wont work in the future yet liberals continue to do so. Instead, they should admit that problems do exist and propose and undertake ways to get them resolved. In the letter Nothing good ever came out of Texas (Aug. 26, 2011), the writer states that the president doesnt have the power as do the members of congress. I agree with that statement. However, the president must present himself to the world and too the country as a leader; as an inspiration. These things are not being done. The writer then says that Bush squandered $19 trillion dollars. Huh? Dont know which history book that figure came from; I certainly cant identify it. Now, here are some facts using some easily verifiable figures: When the Democraticcontrolled congress took power in January, 2007 while, incidentally, Bush was still at the helm the federal budget deficit was $248 billion, it has now grown to $1.645 trillion. The Dow closed at around 12,600; it then began its downward-trend to about 7,060. It is now 11,600 but once again is in a downwardtrend. Unemployment was 4.6 percent Bushs economic policies set a record of 52 months of job creation; unemployment is now hovering around 10 percent. America had experienced 54 straight months of economic growth look at the mess were in today; which would have been much worse if John Boehner and company hadnt won the House in 2010. You liberals can tune-up your El Toro Poo Poo scoopers and continue searching for imagined Republican doo-doo. We conservatives will embrace the positive things required to restore this great Republic to its original splendor.

Lets keep the pace moving and finish in that time. Carol Anns Corner Do you have a back ache, neck and shoulder aches or swollen ankles? Have you been attributing things to the perks of getting older? If so, I have a new perspective to offer you. I have heard these complaints so often, and have some of my own to contribute, that I started analyzing the situation. The folks with these problems are the same folks who say that they spend a large part of each day at the computer, or reading or doing puzzles, etc. Have you taken a look at the position you assume at the computer or while doing other sedentary pursuits? I have and have decided that my backache is almost certainly due to, or aggravated by, working on the computer while propped up in bed with my legs out straight. This is not an appropriate position. You are supposed to sit with your knees bent. I urge everyone to take a look at how you are sitting, and how long you are sitting. Are you putting excessive strain on a particular part of your anatomy? It is so easy to fall into bad postural habits and then spend many hours in that position each day. Lets all consider what we are doing to our bodies. Remember the old Pogo motto, We have met the enemy and it is us. Send items for this column to democratcarol@deccacable.com. Friday, September 9, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com W eve beaten a hole in our drum writing so often about political pork earmarks. Another category of frivolous federal spending is earmarks for eggheads. Weve neglected examples of federal funding for goofy grants and silly studies an annual ritual of granting money for research about which no one seems to ask: Is that important? Is it necessary? With urging from global health groups and womens organizations, federal agencies are funding a number of studies of male contraceptives which reduce or interrupt sperm production. The goal is to make condoms and vasectomies obsolete, replaced by hormone therapy, scrotum injections, or implants. Drug companies arent funding the studies, but they cant wait to sell contraceptive pills and potions to males as well as females. Getting government funding for research is a competitive sport, sometimes tainted with budget stuffing and political connections. With at least 15 agencies conducting annual grab-bag competitions for taxpayer dollars, its a challenge to keep track of who gets the goodies and why. Funding to research heart disease, cancer, and dementia among the elderly is noble and understandable, but can we justify research to prevent aging? If mice had a union they would insist scientists stop feeding them applesauce to determine whether they might live longer on an apple diet and without a power treadmill. Another subject of endless interest is air. Researchers say we shouldnt be breathing air which sticks to our windows, but they havent come up with an alternative. A succession of studies has advised us that our dirty air is bad for childrens lungs and will continue to be a problem. Did we need persistent, expensive reminders, or are we just being hustled into spending taxpayer money to support a cause? During spending discussions earlier this year, Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, targeted a few silly studies his committee felt should not be funded. Rep. Issa was promptly fried by editorials in the New York Times. In some political and editorial circles the term government reform is considered blasphemy. Here are a few of the programs targeted as ridiculous or wasteful: #1 None of the funds may be used to study the impact of integral yoga on hot flashes in www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 9, 2011 T his coming weekend is a time for solemn remembering of an event that everyone who was older than a toddler will recall forever the attack on America by Osama bin Ladens troops, including two planes crashing into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and another into a field in Pennsylvania. In that one, we all remember, the passengers revolted against the hijackers and gave their lives to stop a further attack on Washington, D.C. It was Sept. 11, 2001, and we all recall what we were doing that day. For me, I was at a newspaper where I didnt have to be at work until about 11 a.m., and I was at home, eating breakfast and watching the Today program. It was late in the show that the first word came over that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. Shortly thereafter, the TV showed the towers with smoke billowing out of one of them. Then, suddenly, you saw the second plane come crashing in, and viewers knew, sometimes even before the commentators, that this was deliberate. It was no accident. That led to one of the most dramatic days in the history of American television, as networks scrambled to get the story right. We watched as word drifted in that another plane crashed into the Pentagon in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. Eventually we heard about the crash of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania, but still it took quite a while to link this plane to the attacks. Now we watch the well edited specials on various TV networks, including the ones Ive been seeing on the National Geographic channel. All the information is there, neatly packaged into a series of specials about two hours long, each. As time goes by and we see these news clips, its easy to forget the feeling of the unknown that swept through the nation that day. We knew there was a massive loss of life as soon as we saw the towers collapse, but we had no idea who was behind the terrorism. We had no knowledge of how widespread these attacks were, or were going to be. Thats why every plane in the U.S. was ordered to land within a few hours of the attacks. No one knew if any others were carrying suicide hijackers. There were gut-wrenching tales from families of some of the victims. Some of those on the planes were able to get cell phone calls out to their loved ones, the last time their voices would be heard. From those calls we eventually got more information on what went on aboard the aircraft. For the families on the ground, those calls were devastating, and I would imagine they are haunted by them to this day. There was heroism of all types that was eventually made known. At the towers, there were workers who helped rescue their friends, only to die themselves. There were the firefighters and police who dedicated themselves to trying to save people. Some of them made it out, many didnt. There were the people on Flight 93, whose cell calls made it apparent to those on the ground that they were going to try to get control of the plane. They apparently never did, but they did prevent the aircraft from crashing to another building, probably the U.S. Capitol in D.C. And there was the flight attendant named Betty, who was on the air phone to her supervisors as her plane hit the tower. She provided some crucial information, being able to tell those on the ground what seats the hijackers were occupying. With that information, examination of the manifests made it easy to pinpoint who the hijackers were. However, back on Sept. 11, 2001, we had no idea about a lot of this. I had to get a small daily local newspaper out, but like everyone else, I found information scarce as the day unfolded. There were more rumors than facts. We were worried where the president was, and if he was safe. People old enough to remember will tell you that the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was just as bad, or worse. But the difference is technology. There were no cell phones, no live TV. Thats what made it hit home a lot harder for Americans in 2001. There is a listing in todays paper of upcoming memorial events. Please take time to attend at least one. A lot of Americans gave their lives that day its only right that we show support.

B ack quite a few years ago, there was a movie called Home Alone. At the end, the bratty little kid who captured a couple of burglars had a part in the subplot. He got his scary next door neighbor reunited with his son, enabling the older man to finally spend some time with his granddaughter. It was a great message about family love conquering other problems. Lost in all the memorials and remembrances that Sept. 11 brings, on the 10-year anniversary of the terrible attacks, is a celebration that occurs every year on the second Sunday in September. This year, Sept. 11 is Grandparents Day. Its a day that everyone who has a living grandparent should remember to honor those relatives who have sacrificed much to raise their children, who then produced the grandchildren who make up the familys bloodlines. Something that has changed over the years is evident today many grandparents are much more than that. Many are raising their grandchildren, for whatever reason, because that task has not been undertaken successfully by the childrens parents. In this part of Marion County, we probably have more grandparents per capita than many other places in the country. Nearly all these people want to have contact with their grandchildren, and todays celebration is the perfect chance for the younger generation to create some goodwill with grandma and grandpa. Parents, you can help, by allowing your children to contact the older relatives. Make a special effort to point out to them that many people arent lucky enough to have a grandma or grandpa still alive. Were not suggesting that the anniversary of 9/11 be ignored. But we do feel that the co-existent celebration should be remembered. Grandparents deserve to be remembered on their day.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Mercurys influence creates some unsettling moments, but nothing that you cant live with. Youll soon learn more about that major change that is about to be revealed.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You have a wonderful mind for solving mysteries, so you should feel confident about solving the one developing very close to you. An unlikely source offers help.

(marioncarecouncil.com) FLIGHT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 pened, as many were in tents and campers without TV and had no idea what was going on. We lived in the motor home full time; that's why we had TV. After deciding to start back toward Florida, where we usually spent the winter. We stopped in the town of West Glacier to get money and were told the machines were not working. Why? New York! Oh no, how would we get home? But down the road a few hours later, things were working normally. All the way back to Florida, in small towns along the way, we noticed signs all over town saying "God Bless America" and similar things, and flags were flying everywhere--signs of patriotism not seen before or since. Many people were flying American flags on their cars or in windows. How things have changed in 10 years! BY PEG CORKUM Ocala Wake up and when the feet touch the floor, turn on the bedside radio to catch the daily news and weather. This is how my dat started, not only over the years I went to work, but has carried over to my retirement years as well. 9/11/01 started as usual, but when I heard the report that a plane had smashed into one of the World Trade Center buildings, I immediately hurried to a TV. As I sat and watched, I recalled the many times I had flown from Boston to NYC and the awesome experience of weaving our way through the myriad of skyscrapers, and how thankful I was for each safe trip. Suddenly things became surreal another plane appeared and I watched in disbelief as it flew directory into the other WTC building. Disbelief is an understatement. Was this another Pearl Harbor? God help us! I think the most surreal moment was when building 1 and then building 2 just collapsed into a mountain of rubble. How could this be? Is this a modern-day Orson Wells sick idea of a joke. Unfortunately for the USA, it wasnt a joke, any more than the day President Kennedy was assassinated. 9/11/01 remains vivid in my mind and I relive it every time I think of it. We did rally round and come together as Americans should, didnt we. But for those who might have forgotten, perhaps we should play reruns on TV several times a year, just as a reminder of what can happen again. United we stand, divided we fall. My prayer: God, please bless America. BY RITA WOCH Ocala We were in Arkansas to celebrate the birth of our grandson, Joseph. We turned on CNN to see what was going on in the world and got the surprise of our lives. We watched as an airplane crashed into the first Twin Tower and I said, "This can't be happening. It must be a promo for a new movie." Needless to say, it was happening and it kept on happening and it was real. We watched all day and were horrified at the destruction and the deaths of the teams that were sent in to help. We will never forget that day and feel that it is the day that our country lost its innocence. We will never be the same. MEMORIES CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 United Way of Marion County kicked off its community fundraising efforts on Sept. 1 by loading community members and supporters onto three charter buses and taking them on tours of funded agency partners. Participants were able to see United Way in action as they visited Heart of Florida Health Center, Salvation Army and Boys & Girls Club of Marion County. We talk about the needs all the time, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. But there is nothUnited Way takes bus tour of funded agency partners ing like seeing it in person. We are excited to be able to bring people to see the results happen before their eyes. By doing this we are giving people a call to action to make a difference in the community, by either donating through the campaign, advocating or volunteering around the areas of Education, Income and Health. We are focused on getting people more engaged with our work and its more than just giving, Quinlan said. Volunteer campaign cochairs, Marion County Public Schools Deputy Superintendent Diana Greene and Publix Super Markets District Manager John Goff, announced a 2011 campaign goal of $2.1 million. This amount is slightly above what was raised last year. To date, 15 percent has already been raised from the 20 Pacesetter Companies that started their workplace campaigns in July and from other early donations. In these challenging times it is easy to expect our neighbor to step up and help. Most likely your neighbor is looking for you to do the same, Goff said. Each of us must do our part to help Marion County move forward towards recovery. The United Way is committed to engaging people is different ways, Greene said. Giving financially to the campaign is a huge part, but we also need volunteers and advocates to help us accomplish our community goals. To get involved, visit www.uwmc.org for more information. United Way of Marion County is the most comprehensive health and human services charity and the largest provider of funds to the communitys most critical health and human service programs. United Way filled a bus for a local tour. The organization partners with local businesses, government, other charities and individuals to increase awareness of local health and human service issues and to inspire hope, provide options, and create possibilities for the people in our community.

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.

I n 1978 Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The days purpose is to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their childrens children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer. Wandering through Pun Alley we run into some funny stories that go along with being grandparents and make us glad we can turn the little darlins back to their parents after a day or two. College Pedigree A grandmother was pushing her grandchild around Walmart in a buggy. Each time she put something in the basket, she would say, And heres something for you, Diploma or, This will make a cute little outfit for you, Diploma and so on. Eventually, a bewildered shopper who had heard all this, finally asked, Why do you keep calling your grandchild Diploma? The grandmother replied, I sent my daughter to college and this is what she came home with. Old Grey Mare Hair A little girl was watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She inquisitively asked, Why are some of your hairs white, Mom? Her mother replied, Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white. The little girl thought about this for a while and then said, Momma, how come all of grandmas hairs are white? Foolproof sign When Toms grandson asked how old he was, Tom teasingly replied, Im not sure. Look in your underwear, Grandpa, the grandson advised, Mine says Im 4 to 6. Old fables My grandfather started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now hes 97 years old and we dont know where he is. They say grandchildren brighten up the home. Thats right, they never turn off the lights. An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly. Grandparents are people who come to your house, spoil the children, and then go home. Joans grandkids believe shes the oldest thing in the world. And after two or three hours with them, she believes it, too. If your baby is beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, and is an angel all the time, youre the grandma. Just about the time a woman thinks her work is done, she becomes a grandmother. Ive got nothing against grandkids. I just follow the advice on every bottle in my medicine cabinet, Keep away from children. Among the things that are quite easy, even simple, for a child to operate are the grandparents. Grandchildren dont make a man feel old; its the knowledge that hes married to a grandmother. Would-be boasts Two little boys were talking. One little boy turned to the other boy and said, My grandfather has a wooden leg. The other little boy replied, So what? My grandma has a cedar chest. Strange view After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse before washing her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious her patience grew thin. Finally, she put a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, Who was that? What? Now, Ms. Lyons, said the doctor, you say you have shooting pains in your neck, dizziness, and constant nausea. Just for the record, how old are you? Why, Im going to be 49 on my next birthday, the woman replied indignantly. Hmmm, muttered the doctor, Got a slight loss of memory, too. Dj vu all over again The daughter said, I really appreciate you and Dad watching my kids today, Mom. Later, Grandma said, Im really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our kids were babies. Now, with grandkids, Im exhausted all over again! Grandpa replied, Its to be expected. Why do you think they call folks our age re-tired? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Event benefits Honor Flight PLEASESEEFLIGHT PAGE3 BY GLORIA OTTEN Ocala I was living on Staten Island, N.Y., at the time of the attacks. I worked in the St. George area, near the ferry terminal, with the city skyline directly in front of us. I went outside to witness the second plane hit. It was very traumatic mentally and heart wrenching. I was very worried for my son-inlaw a firefighter and my stepdaughter and stepson-in-law, both police personnel. They all responded. The good Lord was watching over them that day. Unfortunately, my good friends son-in-law wasnt so lucky, his name was Marc David Sullin, he was an EMT and he was trapped with a large group of firefighters in the second building. That was the group that wasnt found until February of 2002. They all died waiting to be rescued. I attended his memorial. I had just spent that Labor Day weekend at their home barbecue and the time I saw him, he was teaching his young son to catch a baseball. Ill never forget that picture in my mind of a young father and son playing catch in the back yard. I later received a copy of the documentary that was filmed by the French company that was documenting the Fire Department. While watching the film, I learned that the exploding sounds were not chunks of concrete from the buildings, but the bodies of people who threw themselves out of the building when they crashed to the ground. To this day, I cry every time I think of Marc and his son, or when I see anything on TV about that dreadful day. I hope and pray that we never have to witness another disaster of that magnitude. BY DEL WILSON Pine RunIn honor of Laura Marie Ragonese Snik, my niece. I was working for Time Warner Cable in the media department. I was in the office of the traffic person, she had a television in her office. We both stopped talking when we looked up and saw the first plane hit the Tower I just couldnt believe it. I knew something was terribly wrong, we were glued to the television listening, but not believing what we heard. Again, another plane hit. I felt this panic inside. I went to my desk and called my sister, I knew my niece worked in that Tower. This just could not be happening. The whole experience seemed surreal at the time, things started to move in slow motion. My boss was amazing, told me to go home, to check in with my family. I was living in Memphis at the time and my family was in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. I looked on the WMC-TV website and found a person in the News Media department. I e-mailed her to please give me any information that she could explaining about my niece. The media was swamped, they couldnt get any information either. At that time the second Tower imploded. I was think, Oh My God, could Laura possibly still be alive? Did she get out? I needed to get to my sister and niece and nephews, I had to be with my family. My Husband came home from work to be with me. My oldest son was about a half hour from me, we were in constant contact with each other. I was on the phone with my sister telling her that I would be there. I flew out as early as I could. My son decided to drive overnight to get to Pennsylvania the next day. The rest is history, my niece was never found. We had a celebration of her life. It is a day we will never forget, a day. Sadly, this is a wound that wont heal, there is no closure. We dont want anyone to forget. We need to honor all of those people who died that day, to honor those who helped and to honor our country always. BY JUNE DUNAI Ocala We were in a campground in Glacier National Park in Montana. In our motor home, we woke up and turned on the satellite TV and heard all the excitement about the first tower being struck by a plane. There was all kinds of speculation as to what had happened: was it an accident, intentional and, if so, who was responsible? Soon, other events took place as the other tower and the Pentagon were hit and the towers began to collapse. We stopped at other camp sites and told people what had hapPHOTO BY JIM CLARK Readers share memories of 9/11 The South Marion Citizen asked readers to submit their memories of Sept. 11, 2001.
