Niblock, county administrator, praised the efforts to consolidate 9-1-1 communications as he spoke to the State Road 200 Coalition recently. I hope you would applaud the effort, he said. Combined it will save $1.3 million a year. The plan calls for all emergency agencies to fall under one communications plan, meaning that people who call 9-1-1 would have to be transferred elsewhere before their need could be addressed. Only the Ocala Police Department has failed to get on board. Were still looking for the potential of the police department. Niblock said this was the fourth year of the county commissioners living within their means with the budget. However, he told people to let me know if youve had a loss of services. He noted, Its hard to grow the economy on a one-legged stool. He also pointed out that the county has no control over other agencies millage. County tax bills also include the School Board, water management districts and other agencies. He said the county continues to look at continued organizational change. He said there are 184 positions fewer in the county than when he became county administrator. He spoke about the countys efforts to help create jobs. The private sector is where jobs are created. He added, I just wish the jobs were there yesterday. He also addressed the controversial issue of Munroe Regional Medical Center. There is a very limited role that the county plays in the governance of MRMC. He praised the hospital for its cardiac center, and noted, If youre going to bring 250 jobs, you want a quality of life. He noted that the schools needed to provide good education, not less going to a four-day format. He complimented all the volunteers in the hospital, saying they would die on the vine if not for our volunteer services. 28 ~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Administrator praises consolidation PHOTO BY JIM CLARKDr. Lee Niblock speaks to the Coalition. Kids expo Triston Workman, 8, who lives on State Road 200 near Bahia Oaks, took part in the Masonic ID program at the All About Kids Expo at the Paddock Mall Saturday, sponsored mainly by the Lions Clubs. Triston is speaking into a microphone which will eventually end up recording his voice on a CD. Also on the CD will be pictures of him and his fingerprints, which will be given to his parents, so in t he event that information is needed it is readily available. Also at the event, Bubbles the Clown, a ventriloquist, and his sidekick Skip ent ertained the folks there. Jobless rate shows small decline in Marion Workforce Connections three-county region continues to reflect the uneven nature of the economic recovery, with modest gains in the number of those with jobs as well as decrease in unemployment over the year, but nearly 2,000 fewer people in the local labor force since August 2010, according to data released today by the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation. The August unemployment rate in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties was 12.3 percent, down one-tenth of a percentage point since July and 1.4 percent over the year. Out of a regional labor force of 210,635 there were 25,974 out of work compared with 29,063 unemployed in August 2010. Rusty Skinner, Workforces chief executive officer, noted that growth in employment and labor force numbers offer a positive for August. However, Skinner noted that while these reflect an improved unemployment rate from one year ago, it continues to be the result of withdrawal from the labor force rather than a sustained improvement in employment growth in Marion and Levy Counties. Citrus County shows growth in both labor force and employment showing some signs of improvement in workforce over the year. Citrus Countys unemployment rate held at 11.8 percent even though the number of those PLEASESEERATE PAGE3 000971U

A big thanks to one and all who called about Kitty the rescue cat featured in last months column. Because of your generosity of spirit when it comes to pets in need, Kitty has found his forever home and is now another success story. For those of you who would like to add a kitten or adult cat to your household, please know that the animal shelters and cat rescue groups in our area are overflowing with cats and kittens of all breeds, sizes, temperaments, colors and ages so there is that perfect feline that is waiting just for you. You can call or visit the Marion County Animal Center (352-671-8700), the Humane Society of Marion County (352-873-7387), Sheltering Hands Cat Rescue (352-817-0663) and Feisty Acres Cat Sanctuary (352-861-4312) and they will pair you up with a kitty companion. You can also visit our local Pet Smart and Petco on S.R. 200 where you can meet some of the kitties up for adoption through these groups. Every time a cat is adopted, it makes room for another not so lucky animal to come into rescue. So please help if you can. Our first Animal Center dog of the month is Baby Boy Blue, but you can just call him Blue for short. Blue is a four year old Catahoula/hound mix that was brought to the Animal Center in May with either a gunshot wound or wound from an arrow. The wonderful folks at the Animal Center have nursed him back to health and hes now ready to be adopted. After all hes been through, hes described as a playful, happy dog. You can chase his blues away by calling the Animal Center today at (352) 671-8700 and maybe you can change his name from Blue to Lucky. Stan, a six year old male Papillion, was rescued from a home with fourteen other Papillions after his owner passed away in a hospital. Stan and a few others are all that is left of this group that need their forever homes. Stan is a little guy just ten pounds so he can easily fit in a corner of your chair but hed rather be a fixture on your lap. This affectionate boy is very playful and happy, full of energy, but prefers to cuddle more than anything. After you romp and play in the morning, hell be ready for an afternoon nap with you in your recliner. How great is that? Then when you wake up you can cuddle some more and marvel at those ears and say Stan is the man. Blues ID number is A047561 and Stans is A054031. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th Street. The Center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. Allergic to Dogs? Are you one of many individuals who would love to share life with a dog, but think you are allergic to dogs? What you are allergic to is the dander produced when double coated breeds shed their coats. Although no breed of dog is totally dander-free, dogs with single layer coats produce significantly less dander than their double coated brethren. You can check out the following breeds and their mixes at shelter or welfare groups to see if you can tolerate the small amount of dander they produce. If you can, you can then adopt one into your loving home and live happily ever after. So check out these breeds before you say to yourself I can never have a dog: Basenji, Bedlington Terrier, Bichon Frise, Chinese Crested, Italian Greyhound, Irish Water Spaniel, Kerry Blue Terrier, Maltese, Poodle, Portuguese Water Dog, Schnauzer all sizes (Giant, Standard, and Miniature), Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and the Xoloitzcuintli, also known as the Mexican Hairless. SPCA News The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Our first meeting of the new season will be Thursday, September 15th. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for that date and come out and join us as we start our new year. Were lining up guest speakers of interest to all animal lovers. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B SW 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at (352) 3620985 to find out more. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

without jobs increased by 104 to 6,999 because, at the same time, its labor force grew by 790 to 59,428 and the number of employed rose by 686 to 52,429. Levy Countys unemployment rate dropped from 11.6 to 11.3 percent over the month. While its labor force decreased by 79 to 17,352 and the number of employed was virtually unchanged at 15,396, down 16, those without jobs fell by 63 to 1,956. Marion Countys unemployment rate fell onetenth of one percent to 12.7 percent. The countys labor force expanded by 89 to 133,855 actually 516 more than in June 2011 the number of those employed rose by 147 to 116,836 569 more than at the beginning of the summer while those without jobs fell by 58 to 17,019. Compared to August 2010, Marion Countys unemployment rate is down from 14 percent, Citrus County is down from 13.1 percent and Levy County is down from 12.5 percent. Becky Rust, AWIs chief economist, said that the May-August period is the lowest unemployment in Florida since August 2009. The states unemployment rate remained virtually unchanged month-to-month, at 10.9 percent, down from 12.1 percent a year ago. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 10.7 percent. The national rate remained unchanged at 9.1 percent. Rust said that since July, 18 of Floridas 67 counties experienced an increase in unemployment rates, 10 held steady and 39 posted declines. She added that over the year, only six counties saw an increase while 61 counties unemployment rates dropped. Comparing year-to-year rates, Rust said, shows the improved economy while monthly unemployment rates may have sharp fluctuations due to seasonal events that follow a somewhat regular pattern each year such as tourism, agricultural harvest, holidays and the opening and closing of schools. For the fifth consecutive month, the Ocala Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) held its ranking of fourth highest unemployment rate among the states 23 MSAs down from second in March and third in April behind Palm Coasts 14.9 percent, Sebastian-Vero Beach at 13.9 percent and Port St. Lucie at 12.8 percent. Among Floridas 67 counties, Marion Countys unemployment ranking dropped a notch to eighth highest, while Citrus Countys ranking dropped from 18th to 19th and Levy County fell two places to 23. Rust described job growth as flat and fragile adding that struggles with the manufacturing industry and housing continues to be the main drag on the national and state economy. Total nonagricultural employment for the Ocala MSA was 90,200, up 1,600 jobs since July and down 100 jobs over the year. Year-to-year gains were reported in professional and businesses services, at 7,600 up 100 since August 2010; and education and health services, at 13,800 up 400 jobs over the year. Four industries in the Ocala MSA showed no change over the month: wholesale trade, financial activities, leisure and hospitality, and other employment. Five industries posted job losses: mining, logging and construction; manufacturing; transportation, warehousing and utilities; information services; and government. Local government, at 14,100 is down 200 jobs over the year but up 1,700 since July. Workforce Connection serves career seekers by planning and coordinating training, education and placement opportunities and also provides business development services such as on-the-job training, paid internships and other financial incentives. Last year, more than 36,000 career seekers and 1,600 businesses received services.

I nterfaith service for 9-11 brought enlightenment A 9-11 memorial sponsored by The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County brought together a spectrum of faith and non-faith traditions as laity, youth and religious leaders to pay tribute. The event of hope and healing, compassion and universal brotherhood was held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ. Hindus, Jews, Christians. Muslims, Buddhists, Bahai, humanists and others listened to readings from the tenets of their faiths with 10year-old Veda Lakshmi Narayan reading both in Sanskrit and English. Other participants were Imam Zafer Sabawi, Islamic Center of Ocala; Rabbi Zeev Harari, Temple Beth Shalom ; Rev. Peggy Hostetler, Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living; Rev. Jim Bullock, retired pastor, Ft. King Presbyterian Church; Rev. Victor Valentine, assistant pastor, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist; and the host pastor and music director, Dr. Hal McSwain.

Homilist Dr. Scott Olsen, professor of philosophy and religion at the College of Central Florida called upon all to consider that both the golden and silver rules universal variants of do unto others as you would have them do to you is found in all ethical traditions. Soloists included Dale Berman Garfinkel and Megan Thompson Ms. Thompson also sang with Katherine Barber, Pamela Michele and Beth McCall who comprise the Central Florida Master Choir Womens Ensemble. As the service concluded those attending left the sanctuary singing euphorically let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me as they moved to the fellowship hall where host congregants warmly welcomed them to good food and an expanding circle of friendship. The Interfaith Alliance is grateful to all who participated in an exhilarating evening of enlightenment, tolerance and good will which reflected the basic goodness of most human beings. The Alliance will continue to work locally to transform this small part of a torn and broken world with love, justice and respect for the inherent dignity and worth of each and every human being.

A Baby Shower! Certainly, everyone knows that OTOW is a 55and-older community. So, the mere mention of a baby shower brings quizzical looks. Some folks, on hearing about the shower, smirked and said, Whats the punch line? Well, the Pickleball Club can attest to the fact that one of its members is certainly expecting a baby. Kim Makay, at this writing, is about three weeks from delivering a son to be named Crosby. Kim continues to play pickleball regularly and the club members watch in awe as she navigates the court and still is a formidable threat behind the paddle. Crosbys soon-to-be-Dad, Tom Butler, had to rent out the house in OTOW and move the family to a development that allows children. On Wednesday, Sept. 14, the pickleball club members held a baby shower/picnic in the OTOW picnic pavilion. Approximately 30 attended ball players, spouses, and friends. Kim and Tom received gift certificates, toys, layette items, and the BIG present a musical lighted crib mobile decorated with miniature pickleball paddles. One of the pickleball players, Rick Vogel, created the mobile decorations and also crafted a plaque dedicated to Crosby that was engraved Crosby Born to Play. The plaque held a tiny pickleball paddle and some baby-sized pickleballs. A lot of good food was eaten, some funny games were played, lots of conversations were held, and a good time was had by all. So, if you hear about a baby shower in OTOW, you can assure everyone that it was, in fact, true. PHOTOGRAPH BY RICK VOGELMother-tobe Kim Makay receives a crib mobile that was especially designed to highlight her interest in pickleball. The mobile has miniature pickleball paddles and babysized pickleballs. REMODELING 000967L Visit Our Website coveconstructioninc.us C O V E C O N S T R U C T I O N I N C COVE CONSTRUCTION, INC.

avoid fines and citations; get your pet his/her rabies vaccine and license in one quick stop at the Marion County Animal Center during business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Rabies vaccines are available at the Animal Center on a walk-in basis for $10. Licenses for sterilized animals are $5 and $35 for non-sterilized animals. If you are bitten or scratched by a stray or unvaccinated animal, you can still take important steps to protect yourself by following these tips from the Marion County Health Department: Seek medical attention immediately from your healthcare provider or the Marion County Health Department. Call Animal Services at 352-671-8727 to report the bite. If you cant locate or dont know the animal that bit you, you will most likely receive a rabies vaccination as a precaution. Call the Health Departments Environmental Health Unit at 352-629-0137 for more information. Residents should also keep these other important tips in mind to help their pets avoid rabies: Do not allow your pets to run free. Follow leash laws by keeping pets and livestock secured on your property. Never feed wild or stray animals and avoid attracting them with outdoors food sources, such as uncovered trash. If your animal is attacked by a wild, stray or unvaccinated animal, do not examine your pet for injuries without wearing gloves. Wash your pet with soap and water to remove saliva from the attacking animal. Do not let your animal come into contact with other animals or people until the situation can be handled by Animal Services or the Health Department. To learn more about rabies vaccines for your pets, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/animalservices.ht m. For information on how to protect yourself after an animal bite, contact the Marion County Health Department at 352-629-0137.

Going back to my school years in northern New Jersey, I have always followed the progress of teams where I live as well as teams I have become acquainted with over the years. Lately, though, Ive begun to wonder whether some high school sports, particularly football and basketball, are getting out of hand. Last Friday, there was a doubleheader at Bradenton Manatee with the host team being in the first game and Tampa Plant in the second. The visiting teams were Don Bosco of Ramsey, N.J., listed as the nations No. 1 team, and Bergen Catholic of Oradell, N.J., which happens to be my old school. Don Bosco won the New Jersey state championship in non-public Group IV last year (New Jersey is smart enough to separate the public and private school playoffs, dont get me started on that), and Bergen Catholic only lost two games last year, both to Don Bosco. So what are these two teams doing in Florida? Theyre not alone among teams making trips. Just go through ESPN on Thursday and Friday nights (and all the related stations such as ESPNU, etc.) and youll find any number of interstate high school football games being nationally televised. Although it wasnt televised, right here in Marion County, one of our schools, Vanguard, played at Carrollton, Ga., in its opener. Most of these teams that travel raise the funds on their own and dont take from school budgets. But even so, how do you motivate kids to win a state championship when theyve already traveled all over the country. Basketball is even worse. Christmas tournaments in Florida, including one big one here in Ocala, attract teams from all over the nation. The Kingdom of the Sun event at Vanguard is a great way to spend the week after Christmas watching some of the top players in the country. Other notable tournaments in Florida are the Kreul Classic in South Florida, the Kissimmee Rotary tournament, and the City of Palms event in Fort Myers. All of these tourneys have some of the top prospects in the country and thats the key word: prospects. In basketball, its all about exposure for the players who want to advance. But that isnt the case necessarily in football. Its just teams wanting to showcase themselves and increase their national rankings. And maybe thats the problem. Maybe there shouldnt be any national rankings for high school teams. Win your state championship thats what you should aim for. National publications and networks are, in my estimation, overexposing these high school athletes. High school sports should get back to being just an extracurricular activity, without national fanfare. For the record, my old high school lost a close game Friday night, and after that they were headed to Miami to watch the Dolphins and a couple of Bergen Catholic graduates. Its a nice trip for the kids I just hope its being done for the right reasons. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

A s Americans, many if not most of us can recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our national anthem. Most could probably name a few of our constitutional rights, such as the right to move freely, assemble peacefully, bear arms, express or publish ones opinion and to practice ones freedoms, to name a few. And the phrase I plead the Fifth has been used by many at one time or another. But what about the right to define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the laws of nations? Or that excises and duties must be uniform throughout the United States? Last Saturday recognized the 224th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, a document drafted by our founding forefathers in Philadelphia creating a Republic that respects the sovereignty of the states and limits the national government by specific grants of power, separation of powers and a system of checks and balances. The Constitution, which starts with We the People, is significant not only as a founding charter of the United States, and as a bulwark of freedom, but also in that the underlying assumptions are different from what preceded it the Magna Carta. In it, the barons went to the king and demanded that he grant them rights. In the Constitution, the assumption is that the people already have those rights. These very important words that are the frame of our Constitution are what our great nation is based upon. Here are a few additional facts about the Constitution: Did you know? There are seven articles followed by 27 amendments. The first 10 amendments are known as the Bill of Rights. Only 12 of the 13 original states actually took part in writing the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island did not attend the Constitutional Convention, though it eventually was the last state to ratify the document in 1790. Chief draftsmen of the U.S. Constitution were James Madison and Gouverneur Morris. To ratify an amendment, three-fourths of the state legislatures approve it and three-fourths of ratifying conventions in states approve it. Lets make sure we are thankful for our freedoms, our liberties and our pursuit of happiness. And, yes, changes have been made over the years to the document. And, yes, it is not perfect. But it is the beacon for us as a nation and sets us apart from the rest of the world.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Lets honor our humble beginnings High school sports out of control? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Corporations as people While I was attending Community College in California long ago years, I lived and worked near a famous tourist attraction, The Winchester Mystery House. Remember the Winchester rifle? The mysteries surrounding this house were the many construction and decorating oddities. For example, there were screen doors on indoor doorways, gold door knobs and stairs that led to the upper corner of a room leading nowhere. Many others, but that is not the point. There were many stories circulating about why the odd features were there. Some said that Mrs. Winchester was trying to keep the spirit of her husband around and that as long as she was having work done on the house his spirit would remain. My favorite was that, being in the great depression, she had many of the local journeymen working on the house to keep them working and supporting their families. Nice story. But what I am leading up to is, since the Supreme Court of the United States has, in its great wisdom, declared that corporations are people, wouldnt it be nice if they would act like people. They do, of course, when it is convenient or beneficial to them, such as contributions to political candidates who might and usually do support legislation that is good for the companys bottom line. Right now, all those big companies are holding on to cash. I might ask, why? What will they use it for? More political contributions? And what is money anyway? It is only paper and, more commonly, just a number on a ledger sheet. They sure arent using it to help our struggling economy. They lay off people to save money when they should be hiring back all those employees they have let go. More people working, more money to be spent, more need for goods and services and back to the need for more jobs and more workers. I have heard excuses, such as, we are uncertain about our taxes and benefit packages (i.e. medical coverage expenses). All future is uncertain. But unless we take some action, whether it appears to be the best choice at the moment or not, our future will become even more uncertain. If corporations insist on being treated as people they should act like it. They cant have it both ways. Take a lesson from Mrs. Winchester and do something to help. J ames M erric k O cala Send sinkhole bills to water companies I recently read an article where Citizens Property Insurance Company wants as much as a 400% increase in property insurance to cover sinkhole claims. Now, apparently, we have an effective insurance lobby in Tallahassee or a preponderance of legislators with ties to the insurance industry. In my corporate climbing days, I lived in 12 states and not one of them had a sinkhole problem, except Florida. The Floridan Aquifer Company tried, in 1997, to get its fingers into Savannah, Georgia. But, through the efforts of the city and county commission, a state senator and the executive director of a conservation association (me), we kept them out. Their plan was to pump water out of the South Branch of the Savannah River into underground caverns, (called aquifers) and then pump the water back out and sell it to the residents of the area. Remember, Aquifers are nothing more than underground caverns. At that time practically no one was acquainted with aquifers. Engineers from both sides didnt consider what would happen when water was pumped into these caverns under pressure and then pumped back out under pressure. The space the water had occupied would easily collapse. The by-product would be sinkholes. The person who questioned this was me, again, as all this pumping would weaken the underground caverns and rock strata. The issue was soundly defeated by those Georgia legislative parties. Of course Florida could have reapplied and with new people making up the commissions, who knows where it now stands.

S ocial Security and Ponzi schemes have one common characteristic. Both are pyramids which require increasing amounts of income from contributors to keep up payments to a growing number of beneficiaries. Some of the new funds coming into a Ponzi scheme are paid to members as investment income, which they are not. The rest of the incoming funds are kept by the Ponzi founder for good living and accumulation of personal wealth. The scheme can continue only if the number of contributors at the bottom of the pyramid continues to grow. Most Social Security taxes are paid out immediately to beneficiaries. Surpluses are spent by Congress just like other tax receipts. Social Security can continue only if there are enough workers to support increasing numbers of beneficiaries or Congress pays back the money it borrowed over the past 50 years. In the early years of Social Security there were 45 workers for each recipient of benefits. Today there are only three workers for each recipient. And Congress owes the system $2.6 trillion dollars, which is a nonsense figure, because government owes the money to itself. The basic difference between the two pyramids is that a Ponzi scheme is a fraud intended to enrich the perpetrator by deceiving the investors. Social Security is a social welfare program intended to prevent widespread poverty among senior citizens, which was common for many years leading up to and during the great depression. To garner favor with voters, Washington politicians kept adding benefits to Social Security without increasing taxes disability, early retirement, and cost-of-living adjustments. Nothing dishonest was intended, just deceptive silence about where money for the additional benefits would come from. Politicians who speak ill of Social Security risk becoming unelectable by high voltage execution on the thirdrail. That would be an appropriate punishment for all the politicians who have led voters to believe that FICA taxes are premiums on health insurance and retirement annuities, which they are not and never have been. To finance the Vietnam War and pay for his Great Welfare Society, President Lyndon Johnson convinced Congress to transfer FICA income to the general treasury, where it became plain old income taxes. In return the Social Security Administration received a ledger in which to keep track of FICA funds borrowed by the Treasury. The ledger was kept in an otherwise empty file cabinet which later became known as the mythical lock box another political deception. Eventual disclosure of the empty file cabinet led Treasury to issue IOUs to Social Security, an empty public relations gesture, because Congress will have to borrow or tax to redeem the $2.6 trillion in IOUs. Why isnt Social Security a Ponzi scheme? Because Congress has the power to tax and borrow to pay back funds it spent irresponsibly over many years. Unlike a Ponzi scheme, Social Security is a popular and successful merrygo-round of do-good deceptions, for which no one will ever be sent to prison. sula; a water state built on unstable strata which has an abundance of lakes and rivers. Remember the battle between North Florida and South Georgia a while back over water rights? Companies like Marion County Utilities and other water companies are part of the Floridan Aquifer system of managing water in our state. If anyone should be paying for sinkhole insurance claims, it should be those water companies that are the primary destructors of our underground caverns. To think, with what little underground stability in Florida, to pump water into underground caverns and destabilize those caverns by then pumping the water back out is playing with fire. But as long as water companies and insurance companies are receiving their bucket of blood, thats all that counts. If and when we might receive increased property insurance bills, send them to your water company. In fact, a class action suit by Florida residents against the insurance companies and the irresponsible legislature for allowing these increases is in order. So American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) get on your horse and get going in the name of Florida residents.

T oday marks the first day of autumn. Already high temperatures have been gradually decreasing, days are getting shorter, and breezes have picked up. Most of the time it is a pleasure to be outside. The exception is when the next tropical storm or hurricane approaches and we get some bad weather. Since there havent been any real hurricanes here for about 40 years or so, dont expect any soon. All we get is rain and some wind which bring us to Pun Alley stories. Hurricane and himmicanes Hurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are alternately named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there. Power flower After the tropical storm she walked over to the one single flower, still standing proud and tall, firmly planted in its given space. All the others had been blown away; they would return by next year. For now, her garden was, simply, this aster. Ace in the hole Driving about looking at horse farms a couple wound up on a dirt road. Whey came to a muddy hollow in the road the car got stuck. After trying to get the car out and failing, a farmer came down the lane driving several workhorses before him. The farmer offered to pull the car out of the mud for $50. The husband accepted, and soon the car was free. The farmer said to the husband, Youre the tenth car Ive helped out of the mud today. The husband asked, When do you have time to do your farm work? At night? No, the farmer replied, Night is when I put the water in the hole. Raindrops Summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. Have you ever noticed how groups of lions tend to move on just before autumn? Of course, pride goeth before the fall. There is always a demand for flat house paint after any hurricane. Up north the leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees: the last leaf and the first football coach. John used to be a watchmaker. It was a great job and he made his own hours. The pogo stick was invented in 1926, but it made many people jumpy. I know a math teacher who also teaches dance. She calls her class logarhythms. When the electricity went off during a storm, the students at the school were de-lighted. Two weathermen each broke an arm and a leg in an accident, and called from the hospital about the four casts. If youre looking for oranges on an apple tree you will have a fruitless search. She criticized my apartment, so I knocked her flat. Autumn is a season for big decisions, like whether or not its too late to start spring-cleaning. Ruth tried to learn how to drive a stick shift but couldnt locate the manual. Penny thoughts Out in the forest two old single rednecks were looking at a Pennys catalog and admiring the models. One old timer said, Have you seen the beautiful girls in this catalog? The second old guy stated, Yes, theyre beautiful. And look at the price! The first one with wide eyes, said, Wow, they arent very expensive. At this price, Im buying one. The second old guy replied, Good idea! Order one and if shes as beautiful as she is in the catalog, Ill get one too. Three weeks later, the first old redneck asked his friend, Did you ever receive the girl you ordered from the Pennys catalog? The second redneck replied, No, but it shouldnt be long now. I got her clothes yesterday! Stalking cattle Corned beef is from cows that have been raised in cornfields. They graze on the corn and get fattened and ready for slaughter. In the fall, just before the harvest, the cattle are rounded up. Unlike cattle grazing in grasslands, the corned beef are difficult to see because the corn stalks are so tall. A specially trained dog, known as a corn dog, assists in the roundup. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

I can never remember using it in any conversations Ive ever had. In fact, the only time I hear the phrase is when some politician is speaking. From the context of the speech, I am quite sure he or she does not know what the phrase means, either. My wife and I were talking about that just this past week. The thing we could not quite figure out is, are we middle-class? And if we are middle-class, what in the world does it mean? And, when do we graduate? In high school, I was neither in the middle of my class nor at the upper end. Unfortunately, I did not even come in last in my graduating class, for someone beat me to that fine distinction. My educational career was not a class act, to be sure. I understand what the word middle, means. And I know the word, class. What does it mean when you put them both together and use it in a sentence? When Im in the middle of a project, I am not at the beginning and the end is a far piece away. When I hear the word class, I am thinking of homework, teachers and all that jazz. Who wants to be a teenager the second time around? Ive had enough of that in my lifetime. Im not quite sure about all this middle-class politicalizing and I sure do not want to be the target of some political agenda. I would like to sponsor a bill that would outlaw this phrase for any elected official. If perchance they do mention the phrase, its a go-to-jail and dont collect $100 act. Maybe we can come up with a new term. We have the term racist that people use at their discretion. Maybe we can coin a phrase like middle-classist and forbid its use in polite society. Of course, how many politicians are really found in polite society? Or, how many polite society venues would welcome a politician? If we try hard enough, we can make it one of the most offensive phrases in the English language. So offensive, that people will stop using it. Of course, they would have to come up with some other phrase and then we are back in first grade again. To be honest, this problem of the middle-classist is not a Republican or a Democrat issue. One side is as guilty as the other side. And, as we all know, a politician by any other name is still a rascal. Every politician courts the middle-class, and what a blushing bride she makes. All through the election, this middle-classist politician will romance those he believes Mr. Politician, leave the middle-class alone O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

are middle-class. And many of the middle-class falls for it. The courtship is wonderful; its the marriage that really stinks. This is the only case in which I would cast an approving eye toward divorce. The middle-class raises most of the money that gets these politicians elected who then in turn refuses returning the favor. After elected this middle-classist politician chums around with high-class people and then passes legislation that only benefits the lower class people whoever they are. Wherefore art thou, O middle-class? Certainly not on the agenda of this middleclassist politician. The middle-class comes in at tax time. Hooray for the middle-class. I wonder if anybody has ever given the thought that most of the money in Washington, D.C. has come from this group called the middle-class. The middle-class can help the neophyte politician get his political dream job with all the benefits that goes with it but the politician does not seem to know how to help other people get jobs for themselves. History has shown us that they know how to spend money but when it comes to saving money, they come to a stupefied and stuttering halt. Middle-class money earned by middle-class people working at middleclass jobs goes to Washington, D.C. to be used by middle-classist politicians for everything but middle-class concerns. When will the insanity stop? In the Old Testament, the Jewish law required that every seventh year be a year of rest. Although I am not Jewish, I think there is something to be said for this kind of rest. I propose that the middle-class be given its due sabbatical. How many years have we been working and then giving our money to Washington, D.C.? We deserve a rest. If these middle-classist politicians look so kindly toward the middleclass, why not give all of us middle-class people a sabbatical where we do not pay any taxes. We certainly will work, but all the money we would normally send to Washington, D.C., we put in our own pocket. Now, thats change I can believe in. In fact, I have biblical authority for all of this. Authority from the mouth of Jesus himself. And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods. And they marveled at him (Mark 12:17 KJV). Not all those middleclassist politicians in Washington give a second thought to the middleclass. I think it is about time we gave them as much thought. I believe the primary problem in America is that we no longer know what belongs to Caesar and what belongs to God. If we can ever figure that out again, happy days are here again. The Rev. James L.

A last minute reminder, the 2011 Flu Shot Clinic (brought to you by the Oak Run Medical Team) will be Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Palm Grove auditorium. Maxim Health will administer the inoculations and all Oak Run residents, their guests and DECCA employees are welcome to come to the clinic. We want you all to stay healthy and continue to enjoy the great life in Oak Run. Everyone must bring a picture ID, your Medicare card, if applicable, or other insurance card if Medicare is not your primary insurance. If you dont have Medicare or other insurance that has made arrangements with Maxim, cash or checks are accepted. The flu shot costs $30 and the pneumonia shot is $65. The latest information is that you only need one pneumonia shot after age 65 and Maxim will not give a second shot. If your doctor feels differently, ask him or her to give you the pneumonia inoculation at your next visit. If traditional Medicare, including Part B coverage, is your primary insurance, Medicare will cover all costs. Several other insurance companies (but not all) have contracted with Maxim and will cover most fees. A poster will be available the day of the clinic so you can see if your insurance is on their list. This issue only concerns those who do not have traditional Medicare with Part B coverage as their primary insurance. In past years some people have become upset when told their particular insurance did not cover the shot. Remember that not all doctors will accept all insurance. Likewise, Maxim Health will be reimbursed only by some insurance and not others. So please try to be understanding. For those not enrolled in traditional Medicare but rather a Medicare Advantage Plan we want you to have the following information. Many of these types of plans offer what is called PFFS (Private Fee for Service). If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan that has PFFS printed on the card it will be accepted by Maxim at the clinic. In addition, all Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Summacare, Healthspring, and AvMed plans are accepted although some do not include the pneumonia shot. This is the most-up-to date information available at this time. You may have a friend or neighbor who would like to join you at the Palm Grove clinic. Please bring them along. Way Off Broadway In St. Louis at the Fair In Way Off Broadways play, In St. Louis at the Fair, Cheryl Gaines as Miss Thornton and Arline Raguso as Miss Hathaway, the leading fair authorities, make it very difficult for the dining room staff, thinking they should have employed them in the soda fountain not in the French dining room captained by the world renowned French chef Pierre, who never shows up. Chef Louie (Lou Winkelman) and his side kick, cook Hazel (Clara Laskay), parlay their cooking expertise to make the restaurant a smashing success using their old-fashioned Midwestern cooking style to win over the crowd. The 1904 fair celebrated the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase. 1,500 temporary buildings were erected of staff, a mixture of plaster of paris and hemp and all were electrified, for the first time in the world. Festival Halls organ was the largest ever built. New foods introduced were ice cream cones, hamburgers, hot dogs, peanut butter, ice tea and cotton candy. The fair hosted the Olympics, the first ever held in the United States. It was the largest Worlds Fair ever, covering 1272 acres connected by 75 miles of roads and walkways. Its Ferris wheel could carry 2160 people at one time, rising 275 feet in the air. Tickets for the play will be on sale in the Orchid Club lobby as follows: tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 23, from 8 to 10 a.m. and also from 6 to 6:45 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 4 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 8, from 8 to 10 a.m. They will also be on sale at Palm Grove on Monday, Oct. 3, from 10 to 11 a.m. Tickets for the play are selling fast and if you cannot make one of the sales please call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 who will make arrangements for you to pick them up elsewhere. Pancake Breakfast From 8 to 10 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 24, you can get the best pancakes in town at the Orchid Club. At a price of only $2.50 this pancake breakfast, which includes sausage, juice and coffee or tea, is a real treat and a real bargain. White Elephant Sale Oak Run is having a white elephant sale at Palm Grove on Saturday, Oct.1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come buy that something special that your neighbor no longer needs but which could be your treasure. Paul and Emily Pike, assisted by Ed and Flo Feltman, will have lunch available, consisting of hot dogs with sauerkraut and chicken, or seafood, salad croissants. Also offered will be assorted Danish, pieces of pie and soda, all at a reasonable price! Admission is free. Come do a bit of browsing and shopping, and dont forget to take time for a light lunch.

Before play, 3 hole numbers were picked out of a hat by the tournament chairmans husband. No one knew what holes had been chosen. After play, the scores from those 3 holes were deducted from the players net score. The winners were first flight: Noreen Salo 1st place, Elsa Berbig and Sylvia Zappia tied for 2nd place; second flight: Roseann Lavacca1st place, Maureen Edwards 2nd place, Janet Tully and Lynn Houghton tied for 3rd place; third flight: Arlene Klann 1st place, Leslie Rizzo and Kathy Kollar tied for 2nd place. Sheila Adams was Closest to the Pin on hole 3. The weather was cooler and we all enjoyed the Florida sunshine and low humidity. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The game on the 16th of September was slightly different than it has been in the past, with the field being divided into two flights based on the choice of tees. For purposes of identification we will call them the white and red flights. Within each flight the game was the usual three best net. The winners of the white flight were Emmet Dowling, John Terry, Al Prachel, and Tom Ducz with a score of 191. In second with a score of 195 were Hal Loomis, Sam Sample, Ken Frandsen, and Jan Flickinger. Tied for third with scores of 201 were the teams of Jim Lacey, Steve Kollar, Jack Edwards and the team of Bob Gray, Gene Topp, Bill Start. The winners of the red flight were Dick Berbig, Ed Simnowitz, and Duke ( Long Ball) Slayton with a score of 178. Second with a score of 187 were George Gariepy, Dick Rizzo, John Foutty, and Paul Valois. Third with a score of 189 were Bob Gildea, Steve Szabo, John Cerlenko, and Joe Paller. Congratulations to this winning team. We dont think testing will be necessary to verify the score, as the three of you played outstanding golf.

PAGE 13

I n this brilliant and fascinating book Swanson registers an entire nations agony after the assassination of its beloved president, Abraham Lincoln. As he follows Lincolns funeral train, he also tracks the Confederacys defeated president Jefferson Davis in his flight from Richmond to his capture in Georgia. Swanson finds some remarkable similarities between the two presidents. Both were born in Kentucky, both lost youthful loves Ann Rutledge, Lincolns doomed sweetheart, and first wife Sarah Knox Taylor who died 12 weeks after marrying Davis. And both men lost young sons they adored. On April 15, the day after Lincolns assassination, Davis knew nothing about the bloody carnage in Washington. That morning Davis had no idea that, last night in the Union capitol, events beyond his knowledge or control would now reach out to affect his fate. Within hours his archenemy Andrew Johnson, an implacable foe of the planter class, would ascend to the presidency. The South could expect no mercy from him. According to the available facts, which Swanson presents painstakingly and without judgment, a puzzling portrait of Davis emerges. He calmly retreats from Richmond and sets out for Danville and other Southern destinations in an unhurried fashion, rallying citizens to continue the fight, certain in his own heart that the Confederacy could still win. He had already dismissed Lees surrender as a mistake. Crowds were enthusiastic until he reached Charlotte, North Carolina where he could scarcely find a place to stay for the night. North Carolinians had lost more men than any other Southern state in Picketts charge at Gettysburg. Meanwhile, grieving Northerners wondered how to honor Lincoln and decided on a death pageant. In the circuitous route to Springfield, Lincolns body became a symbol of the cost of the Civil War. Along the way flagwaving Americans expressed their love for the slain president as embalmers applied a chalky substance to the body and smothered the coffin in fresh flowers to mask the odor of a decomposing body.Friday, September 23, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Trivia Quiz Night begins for residents A re you interested in something different for the coming fall and winter season?

Twenty-nine chairs of all sizes and themes were entered into the contest. Dan chose to carve a pair of hands, in keeping with the name of the charity.

I mportant vision testing for small children, an upcoming charity event, the return of the Big Red Bus, and entertainment and travel opportunities abound in OTOW communities. OTOW Lions Club OTOW Lions Club members participated in the Kids Sight event at Paddock Mall on Sept.17. This program involves the testing of children ages 1 to 6 years of age for amblyopic, commonly known as lazy eye. Caught early enough, a simple eye patch can correct this vision problem, and every parent or guardian of young children should have this screening test done just to make certain no problem exists. The OTOW Lions Clubs Annual Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1 at noon (doors open at 11 a.m.) in the H&R Ballroom. In addition to a wonderful meal and an entertaining fashion show, there will be gift baskets and door prizes. Tickets are on sale through today (Sept. 23) at 10 a.m. The cost is $20 per person and proceeds go to the Florida Center for the Blind and other Lions Club charities. For further information, contact Sarah Tooher at 352-465-8291. Florida Blood Center Bloodmobile On Oct. 3, the Big Red Bus will be in the Health and Recreation Building parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please come and donate the life you save may be your own! Incentives include: Halloween themed t-shirt; free round of golf from Spruce Creek Preserve; a free game of bowling at AMF; BOGO from Dominos across from Paddock Mall; and a $100 gas card raffle for the month of October for all Marion County Bloodmobile donors. Please remember that the Florida Blood Center is the only provider to Marion County hospitals. If you live here, give here! Entertainment Group On Saturday, Oct. 29, Doctors Challa and Kandru, along with the Entertainment Group, present Diamond, Then & Now. This is the ultimate tribute to the legendary singer/songwriter Neil Diamond as performed by Jack Berrios. As seen on a recent Tonight Show, Diamond Then & Now captures the sound, the look, and the passion of a real Neil Diamond concert. Mary Francis Emmons, entertainment writer for the Orlando Sentinel wrote, Its uncanny how much he sounds like the master himself in every way. The tribute how serves to remind you what wonderful songs there are, especially when the singer sounds just like him. Audiences have been known to stand when Jack performs his rendition of America and Sweet Caroline. Tickets go on sale Monday, Sept. 26, 8:30 to 10 a.m. in the H&R Ballroom, and Mondays-Wednesdays-Fridays thereafter. Admission is $8 for general admission and $10 reserved with a maximum of four tickets per purchase. Tickets are for residents of all OTOW communities and for Indigo East. Thanks to Drs.

OTOW Lions Club OTOW Lions Club members participated in the Kids Sight event at Paddock Mall on Sept.17. This program involves the testing of children ages 1 to 6 years of age for amblyopic, commonly known as lazy eye. Caught early enough, a simple eye patch can correct this vision problem, and every parent or guardian of young children should have this screening test done just to make certain no problem exists. The OTOW Lions Clubs Annual Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1 at noon (doors open at 11 a.m.) in the H&R Ballroom.

I n this brilliant and fascinating book Swanson registers an entire nations agony after the assassination of its beloved president, Abraham Lincoln. As he follows Lincolns funeral train, he also tracks the Confederacys defeated president Jefferson Davis in his flight from Richmond to his capture in Georgia. Swanson finds some remarkable similarities between the two presidents. Both were born in Kentucky, both lost youthful loves Ann Rutledge, Lincolns doomed sweetheart, and first wife Sarah Knox Taylor who died 12 weeks after marrying Davis. And both men lost young sons they adored. On April 15, the day after Lincolns assassination, Davis knew nothing about the bloody carnage in Washington. That morning Davis had no idea that, last night in the Union capitol, events beyond his knowledge or control would now reach out to affect his fate. Within hours his archenemy Andrew Johnson, an implacable foe of the planter class, would ascend to the presidency. The South could expect no mercy from him. According to the available facts, which Swanson presents painstakingly and without judgment, a puzzling portrait of Davis emerges. He calmly retreats from Richmond and sets out for Danville and other Southern destinations in an unhurried fashion, rallying citizens to continue the fight, certain in his own heart that the Confederacy could still win. He had already dismissed Lees surrender as a mistake. Crowds were enthusiastic until he reached Charlotte, North Carolina where he could scarcely find a place to stay for the night. North Carolinians had lost more men than any other Southern state in Picketts charge at Gettysburg. Meanwhile, grieving Northerners wondered how to honor Lincoln and decided on a death pageant. In the circuitous route to Springfield, Lincolns body became a symbol of the cost of the Civil War. Along the way flagwaving Americans expressed their love for the slain president as embalmers applied a chalky substance to the body and smothered the coffin in fresh flowers to mask the odor of a decomposing body.Friday, September 23, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Trivia Quiz Night begins for residents A re you interested in something different for the coming fall and winter season?

A last minute reminder, the 2011 Flu Shot Clinic (brought to you by the Oak Run Medical Team) will be Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Palm Grove auditorium. Maxim Health will administer the inoculations and all Oak Run residents, their guests and DECCA employees are welcome to come to the clinic. We want you all to stay healthy and continue to enjoy the great life in Oak Run. Everyone must bring a picture ID, your Medicare card, if applicable, or other insurance card if Medicare is not your primary insurance. If you dont have Medicare or other insurance that has made arrangements with Maxim, cash or checks are accepted. The flu shot costs $30 and the pneumonia shot is $65. The latest information is that you only need one pneumonia shot after age 65 and Maxim will not give a second shot. If your doctor feels differently, ask him or her to give you the pneumonia inoculation at your next visit. If traditional Medicare, including Part B coverage, is your primary insurance, Medicare will cover all costs. Several other insurance companies (but not all) have contracted with Maxim and will cover most fees. A poster will be available the day of the clinic so you can see if your insurance is on their list. This issue only concerns those who do not have traditional Medicare with Part B coverage as their primary insurance. In past years some people have become upset when told their particular insurance did not cover the shot. Remember that not all doctors will accept all insurance. Likewise, Maxim Health will be reimbursed only by some insurance and not others. So please try to be understanding. For those not enrolled in traditional Medicare but rather a Medicare Advantage Plan we want you to have the following information. Many of these types of plans offer what is called PFFS (Private Fee for Service). If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan that has PFFS printed on the card it will be accepted by Maxim at the clinic. In addition, all Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Summacare, Healthspring, and AvMed plans are accepted although some do not include the pneumonia shot. This is the most-up-to date information available at this time. You may have a friend or neighbor who would like to join you at the Palm Grove clinic. Please bring them along. Way Off Broadway In St. Louis at the Fair In Way Off Broadways play, In St. Louis at the Fair, Cheryl Gaines as Miss Thornton and Arline Raguso as Miss Hathaway, the leading fair authorities, make it very difficult for the dining room staff, thinking they should have employed them in the soda fountain not in the French dining room captained by the world renowned French chef Pierre, who never shows up. Chef Louie (Lou Winkelman) and his side kick, cook Hazel (Clara Laskay), parlay their cooking expertise to make the restaurant a smashing success using their old-fashioned Midwestern cooking style to win over the crowd. The 1904 fair celebrated the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase. 1,500 temporary buildings were erected of staff, a mixture of plaster of paris and hemp and all were electrified, for the first time in the world. Festival Halls organ was the largest ever built. New foods introduced were ice cream cones, hamburgers, hot dogs, peanut butter, ice tea and cotton candy. The fair hosted the Olympics, the first ever held in the United States. It was the largest Worlds Fair ever, covering 1272 acres connected by 75 miles of roads and walkways. Its Ferris wheel could carry 2160 people at one time, rising 275 feet in the air. Tickets for the play will be on sale in the Orchid Club lobby as follows: tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 23, from 8 to 10 a.m. and also from 6 to 6:45 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 4 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 8, from 8 to 10 a.m. They will also be on sale at Palm Grove on Monday, Oct. 3, from 10 to 11 a.m. Tickets for the play are selling fast and if you cannot make one of the sales please call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 who will make arrangements for you to pick them up elsewhere. Pancake Breakfast From 8 to 10 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 24, you can get the best pancakes in town at the Orchid Club. At a price of only $2.50 this pancake breakfast, which includes sausage, juice and coffee or tea, is a real treat and a real bargain.

Before play, 3 hole numbers were picked out of a hat by the tournament chairmans husband. No one knew what holes had been chosen. After play, the scores from those 3 holes were deducted from the players net score. The winners were first flight: Noreen Salo 1st place, Elsa Berbig and Sylvia Zappia tied for 2nd place; second flight: Roseann Lavacca1st place, Maureen Edwards 2nd place, Janet Tully and Lynn Houghton tied for 3rd place; third flight: Arlene Klann 1st place, Leslie Rizzo and Kathy Kollar tied for 2nd place. Sheila Adams was Closest to the Pin on hole 3. The weather was cooler and we all enjoyed the Florida sunshine and low humidity. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The game on the 16th of September was slightly different than it has been in the past, with the field being divided into two flights based on the choice of tees. For purposes of identification we will call them the white and red flights. Within each flight the game was the usual three best net. The winners of the white flight were Emmet Dowling, John Terry, Al Prachel, and Tom Ducz with a score of 191. In second with a score of 195 were Hal Loomis, Sam Sample, Ken Frandsen, and Jan Flickinger. Tied for third with scores of 201 were the teams of Jim Lacey, Steve Kollar, Jack Edwards and the team of Bob Gray, Gene Topp, Bill Start. The winners of the red flight were Dick Berbig, Ed Simnowitz, and Duke ( Long Ball) Slayton with a score of 178. Second with a score of 187 were George Gariepy, Dick Rizzo, John Foutty, and Paul Valois. Third with a score of 189 were Bob Gildea, Steve Szabo, John Cerlenko, and Joe Paller. Congratulations to this winning team. We dont think testing will be necessary to verify the score, as the three of you played outstanding golf. Closest to the pin were Mickey Klein, Emmett Dowling, Ed Simnowitz and Dick Houghton. The greens were in perfect shape, having been rolled and cut perfectly. Thanks to the greens keepers for their good work in keeping the course in good shape. See you all next time.

are middle-class. And many of the middle-class falls for it. The courtship is wonderful; its the marriage that really stinks. This is the only case in which I would cast an approving eye toward divorce. The middle-class raises most of the money that gets these politicians elected who then in turn refuses returning the favor. After elected this middle-classist politician chums around with high-class people and then passes legislation that only benefits the lower class people whoever they are. Wherefore art thou, O middle-class? Certainly not on the agenda of this middleclassist politician. The middle-class comes in at tax time. Hooray for the middle-class. I wonder if anybody has ever given the thought that most of the money in Washington, D.C. has come from this group called the middle-class. The middle-class can help the neophyte politician get his political dream job with all the benefits that goes with it but the politician does not seem to know how to help other people get jobs for themselves. History has shown us that they know how to spend money but when it comes to saving money, they come to a stupefied and stuttering halt. Middle-class money earned by middle-class people working at middleclass jobs goes to Washington, D.C. to be used by middle-classist politicians for everything but middle-class concerns. When will the insanity stop? In the Old Testament, the Jewish law required that every seventh year be a year of rest. Although I am not Jewish, I think there is something to be said for this kind of rest. I propose that the middle-class be given its due sabbatical. How many years have we been working and then giving our money to Washington, D.C.? We deserve a rest. If these middle-classist politicians look so kindly toward the middleclass, why not give all of us middle-class people a sabbatical where we do not pay any taxes. We certainly will work, but all the money we would normally send to Washington, D.C., we put in our own pocket. Now, thats change I can believe in. In fact, I have biblical authority for all of this. Authority from the mouth of Jesus himself. And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods. And they marveled at him (Mark 12:17 KJV). Not all those middleclassist politicians in Washington give a second thought to the middleclass. I think it is about time we gave them as much thought. I believe the primary problem in America is that we no longer know what belongs to Caesar and what belongs to God. If we can ever figure that out again, happy days are here again. The Rev. James L.

Helen Houseman DeGraw, 91Helen Houseman DeGraw passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011 at the Emeritus Assisted Living Facility of Ocala, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born Jan. 11, 1920 in Warwick, N.Y., to Peter and Rose Houseman and was predeceased by her sister Jennie H. Motz. Helen married her longtime sweetheart C. Frank DeGraw on Dec. 8, 1945, three weeks after he returned from fighting in France during World War II.

Mr. and Mrs. DeGraw resided in Roseland, N.J., for 30 years before moving to the On Top of the World retirement community in Ocala in 1985. During her retirement Helen became an avid golfer and bridge player. She was a devoted member of Countryside Presbyterian Church, Ocala. Helen is survived by her nieces, Evelyn B.

T oday marks the first day of autumn. Already high temperatures have been gradually decreasing, days are getting shorter, and breezes have picked up. Most of the time it is a pleasure to be outside. The exception is when the next tropical storm or hurricane approaches and we get some bad weather. Since there havent been any real hurricanes here for about 40 years or so, dont expect any soon. All we get is rain and some wind which bring us to Pun Alley stories. Hurricane and himmicanes Hurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are alternately named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there. Power flower After the tropical storm she walked over to the one single flower, still standing proud and tall, firmly planted in its given space. All the others had been blown away; they would return by next year. For now, her garden was, simply, this aster. Ace in the hole Driving about looking at horse farms a couple wound up on a dirt road. Whey came to a muddy hollow in the road the car got stuck. After trying to get the car out and failing, a farmer came down the lane driving several workhorses before him. The farmer offered to pull the car out of the mud for $50. The husband accepted, and soon the car was free. The farmer said to the husband, Youre the tenth car Ive helped out of the mud today. The husband asked, When do you have time to do your farm work? At night? No, the farmer replied, Night is when I put the water in the hole. Raindrops Summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. Have you ever noticed how groups of lions tend to move on just before autumn? Of course, pride goeth before the fall. There is always a demand for flat house paint after any hurricane. Up north the leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees: the last leaf and the first football coach. John used to be a watchmaker. It was a great job and he made his own hours. The pogo stick was invented in 1926, but it made many people jumpy. I know a math teacher who also teaches dance. She calls her class logarhythms. When the electricity went off during a storm, the students at the school were de-lighted. Two weathermen each broke an arm and a leg in an accident, and called from the hospital about the four casts. If youre looking for oranges on an apple tree you will have a fruitless search. She criticized my apartment, so I knocked her flat. Autumn is a season for big decisions, like whether or not its too late to start spring-cleaning. Ruth tried to learn how to drive a stick shift but couldnt locate the manual. Penny thoughts Out in the forest two old single rednecks were looking at a Pennys catalog and admiring the models. One old timer said, Have you seen the beautiful girls in this catalog? The second old guy stated, Yes, theyre beautiful. And look at the price! The first one with wide eyes, said, Wow, they arent very expensive. At this price, Im buying one. The second old guy replied, Good idea! Order one and if shes as beautiful as she is in the catalog, Ill get one too. Three weeks later, the first old redneck asked his friend, Did you ever receive the girl you ordered from the Pennys catalog? The second redneck replied, No, but it shouldnt be long now. I got her clothes yesterday! Stalking cattle Corned beef is from cows that have been raised in cornfields. They graze on the corn and get fattened and ready for slaughter. In the fall, just before the harvest, the cattle are rounded up. Unlike cattle grazing in grasslands, the corned beef are difficult to see because the corn stalks are so tall. A specially trained dog, known as a corn dog, assists in the roundup. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

I can never remember using it in any conversations Ive ever had. In fact, the only time I hear the phrase is when some politician is speaking. From the context of the speech, I am quite sure he or she does not know what the phrase means, either. My wife and I were talking about that just this past week. The thing we could not quite figure out is, are we middle-class? And if we are middle-class, what in the world does it mean? And, when do we graduate? In high school, I was neither in the middle of my class nor at the upper end. Unfortunately, I did not even come in last in my graduating class, for someone beat me to that fine distinction. My educational career was not a class act, to be sure. I understand what the word middle, means. And I know the word, class. What does it mean when you put them both together and use it in a sentence? When Im in the middle of a project, I am not at the beginning and the end is a far piece away. When I hear the word class, I am thinking of homework, teachers and all that jazz. Who wants to be a teenager the second time around? Ive had enough of that in my lifetime. Im not quite sure about all this middle-class politicalizing and I sure do not want to be the target of some political agenda. I would like to sponsor a bill that would outlaw this phrase for any elected official. If perchance they do mention the phrase, its a go-to-jail and dont collect $100 act. Maybe we can come up with a new term. We have the term racist that people use at their discretion. Maybe we can coin a phrase like middle-classist and forbid its use in polite society. Of course, how many politicians are really found in polite society? Or, how many polite society venues would welcome a politician? If we try hard enough, we can make it one of the most offensive phrases in the English language. So offensive, that people will stop using it. Of course, they would have to come up with some other phrase and then we are back in first grade again. To be honest, this problem of the middle-classist is not a Republican or a Democrat issue. One side is as guilty as the other side. And, as we all know, a politician by any other name is still a rascal. Every politician courts the middle-class, and what a blushing bride she makes. All through the election, this middle-classist politician will romance those he believes Mr. Politician, leave the middle-class alone O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

S ocial Security and Ponzi schemes have one common characteristic. Both are pyramids which require increasing amounts of income from contributors to keep up payments to a growing number of beneficiaries. Some of the new funds coming into a Ponzi scheme are paid to members as investment income, which they are not. The rest of the incoming funds are kept by the Ponzi founder for good living and accumulation of personal wealth. The scheme can continue only if the number of contributors at the bottom of the pyramid continues to grow. Most Social Security taxes are paid out immediately to beneficiaries. Surpluses are spent by Congress just like other tax receipts. Social Security can continue only if there are enough workers to support increasing numbers of beneficiaries or Congress pays back the money it borrowed over the past 50 years. In the early years of Social Security there were 45 workers for each recipient of benefits. Today there are only three workers for each recipient. And Congress owes the system $2.6 trillion dollars, which is a nonsense figure, because government owes the money to itself. The basic difference between the two pyramids is that a Ponzi scheme is a fraud intended to enrich the perpetrator by deceiving the investors. Social Security is a social welfare program intended to prevent widespread poverty among senior citizens, which was common for many years leading up to and during the great depression. To garner favor with voters, Washington politicians kept adding benefits to Social Security without increasing taxes disability, early retirement, and cost-of-living adjustments. Nothing dishonest was intended, just deceptive silence about where money for the additional benefits would come from. Politicians who speak ill of Social Security risk becoming unelectable by high voltage execution on the thirdrail. That would be an appropriate punishment for all the politicians who have led voters to believe that FICA taxes are premiums on health insurance and retirement annuities, which they are not and never have been. To finance the Vietnam War and pay for his Great Welfare Society, President Lyndon Johnson convinced Congress to transfer FICA income to the general treasury, where it became plain old income taxes. In return the Social Security Administration received a ledger in which to keep track of FICA funds borrowed by the Treasury. The ledger was kept in an otherwise empty file cabinet which later became known as the mythical lock box another political deception. Eventual disclosure of the empty file cabinet led Treasury to issue IOUs to Social Security, an empty public relations gesture, because Congress will have to borrow or tax to redeem the $2.6 trillion in IOUs. Why isnt Social Security a Ponzi scheme? Because Congress has the power to tax and borrow to pay back funds it spent irresponsibly over many years. Unlike a Ponzi scheme, Social Security is a popular and successful merrygo-round of do-good deceptions, for which no one will ever be sent to prison. sula; a water state built on unstable strata which has an abundance of lakes and rivers. Remember the battle between North Florida and South Georgia a while back over water rights? Companies like Marion County Utilities and other water companies are part of the Floridan Aquifer system of managing water in our state. If anyone should be paying for sinkhole insurance claims, it should be those water companies that are the primary destructors of our underground caverns. To think, with what little underground stability in Florida, to pump water into underground caverns and destabilize those caverns by then pumping the water back out is playing with fire. But as long as water companies and insurance companies are receiving their bucket of blood, thats all that counts. If and when we might receive increased property insurance bills, send them to your water company. In fact, a class action suit by Florida residents against the insurance companies and the irresponsible legislature for allowing these increases is in order. So American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) get on your horse and get going in the name of Florida residents.

avoid fines and citations; get your pet his/her rabies vaccine and license in one quick stop at the Marion County Animal Center during business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Rabies vaccines are available at the Animal Center on a walk-in basis for $10. Licenses for sterilized animals are $5 and $35 for non-sterilized animals. If you are bitten or scratched by a stray or unvaccinated animal, you can still take important steps to protect yourself by following these tips from the Marion County Health Department: Seek medical attention immediately from your healthcare provider or the Marion County Health Department. Call Animal Services at 352-671-8727 to report the bite. If you cant locate or dont know the animal that bit you, you will most likely receive a rabies vaccination as a precaution. Call the Health Departments Environmental Health Unit at 352-629-0137 for more information. Residents should also keep these other important tips in mind to help their pets avoid rabies: Do not allow your pets to run free. Follow leash laws by keeping pets and livestock secured on your property. Never feed wild or stray animals and avoid attracting them with outdoors food sources, such as uncovered trash. If your animal is attacked by a wild, stray or unvaccinated animal, do not examine your pet for injuries without wearing gloves. Wash your pet with soap and water to remove saliva from the attacking animal. Do not let your animal come into contact with other animals or people until the situation can be handled by Animal Services or the Health Department. To learn more about rabies vaccines for your pets, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/animalservices.ht m. For information on how to protect yourself after an animal bite, contact the Marion County Health Department at 352-629-0137.

Going back to my school years in northern New Jersey, I have always followed the progress of teams where I live as well as teams I have become acquainted with over the years. Lately, though, Ive begun to wonder whether some high school sports, particularly football and basketball, are getting out of hand. Last Friday, there was a doubleheader at Bradenton Manatee with the host team being in the first game and Tampa Plant in the second. The visiting teams were Don Bosco of Ramsey, N.J., listed as the nations No. 1 team, and Bergen Catholic of Oradell, N.J., which happens to be my old school. Don Bosco won the New Jersey state championship in non-public Group IV last year (New Jersey is smart enough to separate the public and private school playoffs, dont get me started on that), and Bergen Catholic only lost two games last year, both to Don Bosco. So what are these two teams doing in Florida? Theyre not alone among teams making trips. Just go through ESPN on Thursday and Friday nights (and all the related stations such as ESPNU, etc.) and youll find any number of interstate high school football games being nationally televised. Although it wasnt televised, right here in Marion County, one of our schools, Vanguard, played at Carrollton, Ga., in its opener. Most of these teams that travel raise the funds on their own and dont take from school budgets. But even so, how do you motivate kids to win a state championship when theyve already traveled all over the country. Basketball is even worse. Christmas tournaments in Florida, including one big one here in Ocala, attract teams from all over the nation. The Kingdom of the Sun event at Vanguard is a great way to spend the week after Christmas watching some of the top players in the country. Other notable tournaments in Florida are the Kreul Classic in South Florida, the Kissimmee Rotary tournament, and the City of Palms event in Fort Myers. All of these tourneys have some of the top prospects in the country and thats the key word: prospects. In basketball, its all about exposure for the players who want to advance. But that isnt the case necessarily in football. Its just teams wanting to showcase themselves and increase their national rankings. And maybe thats the problem. Maybe there shouldnt be any national rankings for high school teams. Win your state championship thats what you should aim for. National publications and networks are, in my estimation, overexposing these high school athletes. High school sports should get back to being just an extracurricular activity, without national fanfare. For the record, my old high school lost a close game Friday night, and after that they were headed to Miami to watch the Dolphins and a couple of Bergen Catholic graduates. Its a nice trip for the kids I just hope its being done for the right reasons. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

A s Americans, many if not most of us can recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our national anthem. Most could probably name a few of our constitutional rights, such as the right to move freely, assemble peacefully, bear arms, express or publish ones opinion and to practice ones freedoms, to name a few. And the phrase I plead the Fifth has been used by many at one time or another. But what about the right to define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the laws of nations? Or that excises and duties must be uniform throughout the United States? Last Saturday recognized the 224th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, a document drafted by our founding forefathers in Philadelphia creating a Republic that respects the sovereignty of the states and limits the national government by specific grants of power, separation of powers and a system of checks and balances. The Constitution, which starts with We the People, is significant not only as a founding charter of the United States, and as a bulwark of freedom, but also in that the underlying assumptions are different from what preceded it the Magna Carta. In it, the barons went to the king and demanded that he grant them rights. In the Constitution, the assumption is that the people already have those rights. These very important words that are the frame of our Constitution are what our great nation is based upon. Here are a few additional facts about the Constitution: Did you know? There are seven articles followed by 27 amendments. The first 10 amendments are known as the Bill of Rights. Only 12 of the 13 original states actually took part in writing the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island did not attend the Constitutional Convention, though it eventually was the last state to ratify the document in 1790. Chief draftsmen of the U.S. Constitution were James Madison and Gouverneur Morris. To ratify an amendment, three-fourths of the state legislatures approve it and three-fourths of ratifying conventions in states approve it. Lets make sure we are thankful for our freedoms, our liberties and our pursuit of happiness. And, yes, changes have been made over the years to the document. And, yes, it is not perfect. But it is the beacon for us as a nation and sets us apart from the rest of the world.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Lets honor our humble beginnings High school sports out of control? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Corporations as people While I was attending Community College in California long ago years, I lived and worked near a famous tourist attraction, The Winchester Mystery House. Remember the Winchester rifle? The mysteries surrounding this house were the many construction and decorating oddities. For example, there were screen doors on indoor doorways, gold door knobs and stairs that led to the upper corner of a room leading nowhere. Many others, but that is not the point. There were many stories circulating about why the odd features were there. Some said that Mrs. Winchester was trying to keep the spirit of her husband around and that as long as she was having work done on the house his spirit would remain. My favorite was that, being in the great depression, she had many of the local journeymen working on the house to keep them working and supporting their families. Nice story. But what I am leading up to is, since the Supreme Court of the United States has, in its great wisdom, declared that corporations are people, wouldnt it be nice if they would act like people. They do, of course, when it is convenient or beneficial to them, such as contributions to political candidates who might and usually do support legislation that is good for the companys bottom line. Right now, all those big companies are holding on to cash. I might ask, why? What will they use it for? More political contributions? And what is money anyway? It is only paper and, more commonly, just a number on a ledger sheet. They sure arent using it to help our struggling economy. They lay off people to save money when they should be hiring back all those employees they have let go. More people working, more money to be spent, more need for goods and services and back to the need for more jobs and more workers. I have heard excuses, such as, we are uncertain about our taxes and benefit packages (i.e. medical coverage expenses). All future is uncertain. But unless we take some action, whether it appears to be the best choice at the moment or not, our future will become even more uncertain. If corporations insist on being treated as people they should act like it. They cant have it both ways. Take a lesson from Mrs. Winchester and do something to help. J ames M erric k O cala Send sinkhole bills to water companies I recently read an article where Citizens Property Insurance Company wants as much as a 400% increase in property insurance to cover sinkhole claims. Now, apparently, we have an effective insurance lobby in Tallahassee or a preponderance of legislators with ties to the insurance industry. In my corporate climbing days, I lived in 12 states and not one of them had a sinkhole problem, except Florida. The Floridan Aquifer Company tried, in 1997, to get its fingers into Savannah, Georgia. But, through the efforts of the city and county commission, a state senator and the executive director of a conservation association (me), we kept them out. Their plan was to pump water out of the South Branch of the Savannah River into underground caverns, (called aquifers) and then pump the water back out and sell it to the residents of the area. Remember, Aquifers are nothing more than underground caverns. At that time practically no one was acquainted with aquifers. Engineers from both sides didnt consider what would happen when water was pumped into these caverns under pressure and then pumped back out under pressure. The space the water had occupied would easily collapse. The by-product would be sinkholes. The person who questioned this was me, again, as all this pumping would weaken the underground caverns and rock strata. The issue was soundly defeated by those Georgia legislative parties. Of course Florida could have reapplied and with new people making up the commissions, who knows where it now stands.

without jobs increased by 104 to 6,999 because, at the same time, its labor force grew by 790 to 59,428 and the number of employed rose by 686 to 52,429. Levy Countys unemployment rate dropped from 11.6 to 11.3 percent over the month. While its labor force decreased by 79 to 17,352 and the number of employed was virtually unchanged at 15,396, down 16, those without jobs fell by 63 to 1,956. Marion Countys unemployment rate fell onetenth of one percent to 12.7 percent. The countys labor force expanded by 89 to 133,855 actually 516 more than in June 2011 the number of those employed rose by 147 to 116,836 569 more than at the beginning of the summer while those without jobs fell by 58 to 17,019. Compared to August 2010, Marion Countys unemployment rate is down from 14 percent, Citrus County is down from 13.1 percent and Levy County is down from 12.5 percent. Becky Rust, AWIs chief economist, said that the May-August period is the lowest unemployment in Florida since August 2009. The states unemployment rate remained virtually unchanged month-to-month, at 10.9 percent, down from 12.1 percent a year ago. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 10.7 percent. The national rate remained unchanged at 9.1 percent. Rust said that since July, 18 of Floridas 67 counties experienced an increase in unemployment rates, 10 held steady and 39 posted declines. She added that over the year, only six counties saw an increase while 61 counties unemployment rates dropped. Comparing year-to-year rates, Rust said, shows the improved economy while monthly unemployment rates may have sharp fluctuations due to seasonal events that follow a somewhat regular pattern each year such as tourism, agricultural harvest, holidays and the opening and closing of schools. For the fifth consecutive month, the Ocala Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) held its ranking of fourth highest unemployment rate among the states 23 MSAs down from second in March and third in April behind Palm Coasts 14.9 percent, Sebastian-Vero Beach at 13.9 percent and Port St. Lucie at 12.8 percent. Among Floridas 67 counties, Marion Countys unemployment ranking dropped a notch to eighth highest, while Citrus Countys ranking dropped from 18th to 19th and Levy County fell two places to 23. Rust described job growth as flat and fragile adding that struggles with the manufacturing industry and housing continues to be the main drag on the national and state economy. Total nonagricultural employment for the Ocala MSA was 90,200, up 1,600 jobs since July and down 100 jobs over the year. Year-to-year gains were reported in professional and businesses services, at 7,600 up 100 since August 2010; and education and health services, at 13,800 up 400 jobs over the year. Four industries in the Ocala MSA showed no change over the month: wholesale trade, financial activities, leisure and hospitality, and other employment. Five industries posted job losses: mining, logging and construction; manufacturing; transportation, warehousing and utilities; information services; and government. Local government, at 14,100 is down 200 jobs over the year but up 1,700 since July. Workforce Connection serves career seekers by planning and coordinating training, education and placement opportunities and also provides business development services such as on-the-job training, paid internships and other financial incentives.

I nterfaith service for 9-11 brought enlightenment A 9-11 memorial sponsored by The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County brought together a spectrum of faith and non-faith traditions as laity, youth and religious leaders to pay tribute. The event of hope and healing, compassion and universal brotherhood was held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ. Hindus, Jews, Christians. Muslims, Buddhists, Bahai, humanists and others listened to readings from the tenets of their faiths with 10year-old Veda Lakshmi Narayan reading both in Sanskrit and English. Other participants were Imam Zafer Sabawi, Islamic Center of Ocala; Rabbi Zeev Harari, Temple Beth Shalom ; Rev. Peggy Hostetler, Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living; Rev. Jim Bullock, retired pastor, Ft. King Presbyterian Church; Rev. Victor Valentine, assistant pastor, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist; and the host pastor and music director, Dr. Hal McSwain. Joann Bennett of the BahaI tradition, also read as did Kay Marks of First Christian Church, Disciples of Christ; Jim McIntosh, president of the Unitarian Universalist fellowship in Summerfield; Brother Munawwar Qadri of the Islamic Center; Dae Bi (Larry) Ford of the White Lotus Dharma Center ; Barbara Fitos, executive director of The Community Fund; and Ervin Bullock a Presbyterian, who read a Jain prayer for peace. Homilist Dr. Scott Olsen, professor of philosophy and religion at the College of Central Florida called upon all to consider that both the golden and silver rules universal variants of do unto others as you would have them do to you is found in all ethical traditions. Soloists included Dale Berman Garfinkel and Megan Thompson Ms. Thompson also sang with Katherine Barber, Pamela Michele and Beth McCall who comprise the Central Florida Master Choir Womens Ensemble. As the service concluded those attending left the sanctuary singing euphorically let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me as they moved to the fellowship hall where host congregants warmly welcomed them to good food and an expanding circle of friendship.

A Baby Shower! Certainly, everyone knows that OTOW is a 55and-older community. So, the mere mention of a baby shower brings quizzical looks. Some folks, on hearing about the shower, smirked and said, Whats the punch line? Well, the Pickleball Club can attest to the fact that one of its members is certainly expecting a baby. Kim Makay, at this writing, is about three weeks from delivering a son to be named Crosby. Kim continues to play pickleball regularly and the club members watch in awe as she navigates the court and still is a formidable threat behind the paddle. Crosbys soon-to-be-Dad, Tom Butler, had to rent out the house in OTOW and move the family to a development that allows children. On Wednesday, Sept. 14, the pickleball club members held a baby shower/picnic in the OTOW picnic pavilion. Approximately 30 attended ball players, spouses, and friends. Kim and Tom received gift certificates, toys, layette items, and the BIG present a musical lighted crib mobile decorated with miniature pickleball paddles. One of the pickleball players, Rick Vogel, created the mobile decorations and also crafted a plaque dedicated to Crosby that was engraved Crosby Born to Play. The plaque held a tiny pickleball paddle and some baby-sized pickleballs. A lot of good food was eaten, some funny games were played, lots of conversations were held, and a good time was had by all. So, if you hear about a baby shower in OTOW, you can assure everyone that it was, in fact, true. PHOTOGRAPH BY RICK VOGELMother-tobe Kim Makay receives a crib mobile that was especially designed to highlight her interest in pickleball. The mobile has miniature pickleball paddles and babysized pickleballs. REMODELING 000967L Visit Our Website coveconstructioninc.us C O V E C O N S T R U C T I O N I N C COVE CONSTRUCTION, INC.

A big thanks to one and all who called about Kitty the rescue cat featured in last months column. Because of your generosity of spirit when it comes to pets in need, Kitty has found his forever home and is now another success story. For those of you who would like to add a kitten or adult cat to your household, please know that the animal shelters and cat rescue groups in our area are overflowing with cats and kittens of all breeds, sizes, temperaments, colors and ages so there is that perfect feline that is waiting just for you. You can call or visit the Marion County Animal Center (352-671-8700), the Humane Society of Marion County (352-873-7387), Sheltering Hands Cat Rescue (352-817-0663) and Feisty Acres Cat Sanctuary (352-861-4312) and they will pair you up with a kitty companion. You can also visit our local Pet Smart and Petco on S.R. 200 where you can meet some of the kitties up for adoption through these groups. Every time a cat is adopted, it makes room for another not so lucky animal to come into rescue. So please help if you can. Our first Animal Center dog of the month is Baby Boy Blue, but you can just call him Blue for short. Blue is a four year old Catahoula/hound mix that was brought to the Animal Center in May with either a gunshot wound or wound from an arrow. The wonderful folks at the Animal Center have nursed him back to health and hes now ready to be adopted. After all hes been through, hes described as a playful, happy dog. You can chase his blues away by calling the Animal Center today at (352) 671-8700 and maybe you can change his name from Blue to Lucky. Stan, a six year old male Papillion, was rescued from a home with fourteen other Papillions after his owner passed away in a hospital. Stan and a few others are all that is left of this group that need their forever homes. Stan is a little guy just ten pounds so he can easily fit in a corner of your chair but hed rather be a fixture on your lap. This affectionate boy is very playful and happy, full of energy, but prefers to cuddle more than anything. After you romp and play in the morning, hell be ready for an afternoon nap with you in your recliner. How great is that? Then when you wake up you can cuddle some more and marvel at those ears and say Stan is the man. Blues ID number is A047561 and Stans is A054031. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th Street. The Center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. Allergic to Dogs? Are you one of many individuals who would love to share life with a dog, but think you are allergic to dogs? What you are allergic to is the dander produced when double coated breeds shed their coats. Although no breed of dog is totally dander-free, dogs with single layer coats produce significantly less dander than their double coated brethren. You can check out the following breeds and their mixes at shelter or welfare groups to see if you can tolerate the small amount of dander they produce. If you can, you can then adopt one into your loving home and live happily ever after. So check out these breeds before you say to yourself I can never have a dog: Basenji, Bedlington Terrier, Bichon Frise, Chinese Crested, Italian Greyhound, Irish Water Spaniel, Kerry Blue Terrier, Maltese, Poodle, Portuguese Water Dog, Schnauzer all sizes (Giant, Standard, and Miniature), Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and the Xoloitzcuintli, also known as the Mexican Hairless. SPCA News The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Our first meeting of the new season will be Thursday, September 15th. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for that date and come out and join us as we start our new year. Were lining up guest speakers of interest to all animal lovers. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B SW 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at (352) 3620985 to find out more. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

Though the word probably invokes images of raccoons and bats foaming at the mouth, your sweet kitty, friendly dog, calm horse or even you can contract the disease if bitten by a rabid animal. Rabies is caused by a virus thats spread through exposure to a rabid animals saliva or nervous tissue and is nearly always fatal if not immediately treated.

Niblock, county administrator, praised the efforts to consolidate 9-1-1 communications as he spoke to the State Road 200 Coalition recently. I hope you would applaud the effort, he said. Combined it will save $1.3 million a year. The plan calls for all emergency agencies to fall under one communications plan, meaning that people who call 9-1-1 would have to be transferred elsewhere before their need could be addressed. Only the Ocala Police Department has failed to get on board. Were still looking for the potential of the police department. Niblock said this was the fourth year of the county commissioners living within their means with the budget. However, he told people to let me know if youve had a loss of services. He noted, Its hard to grow the economy on a one-legged stool. He also pointed out that the county has no control over other agencies millage. County tax bills also include the School Board, water management districts and other agencies. He said the county continues to look at continued organizational change. He said there are 184 positions fewer in the county than when he became county administrator. He spoke about the countys efforts to help create jobs. The private sector is where jobs are created. He added, I just wish the jobs were there yesterday. He also addressed the controversial issue of Munroe Regional Medical Center. There is a very limited role that the county plays in the governance of MRMC. He praised the hospital for its cardiac center, and noted, If youre going to bring 250 jobs, you want a quality of life. He noted that the schools needed to provide good education, not less going to a four-day format. He complimented all the volunteers in the hospital, saying they would die on the vine if not for our volunteer services. 28 ~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Administrator praises consolidation PHOTO BY JIM CLARKDr. Lee Niblock speaks to the Coalition.

The August unemployment rate in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties was 12.3 percent, down one-tenth of a percentage point since July and 1.4 percent over the year. Out of a regional labor force of 210,635 there were 25,974 out of work compared with 29,063 unemployed in August 2010. Rusty Skinner, Workforces chief executive officer, noted that growth in employment and labor force numbers offer a positive for August. However, Skinner noted that while these reflect an improved unemployment rate from one year ago, it continues to be the result of withdrawal from the labor force rather than a sustained improvement in employment growth in Marion and Levy Counties. Citrus County shows growth in both labor force and employment showing some signs of improvement in workforce over the year.

Abig thanks to one and all who called about Kitty the rescue cat featured in last months column. Because of your generosity of spirit when it comes to pets in need, Kitty has found his forever home and is now another success story. For those of you who would like to add a kitten or adult cat to your household, please know that the animal shelters and cat rescue groups in our area are overflowing with cats and kittens of all breeds, sizes, temperaments, colors and ages so there is that perfect feline that is waiting just for you. You can call or visit the Marion County Animal Center (352-671-8700), the Humane Society of Marion County (352-873-7387), Sheltering Hands Cat Rescue (352-817-0663) and Feisty Acres Cat Sanctuary (352-861-4312) and they will pair you up with a kitty companion. You can also visit our local Pet Smart and Petco on S.R. 200 where you can meet some of the kitties up for adoption through these groups. Every time a cat is adopted, it makes room for another not so lucky animal to come into rescue. So please help if you can. Our first Animal Center dog of the month is Baby Boy Blue, but you can just call him Blue for short. Blue is a four year old Catahoula/hound mix that was brought to the Animal Center in May with either a gunshot wound or wound from an arrow. The wonderful folks at the Animal Center have nursed him back to health and hes now ready to be adopted. After all hes been through, hes described as a playful, happy dog. You can chase his blues away by calling the Animal Center today at (352) 671-8700 and maybe you can change his name from Blue to Lucky. Stan, a six year old male Papillion, was rescued from a home with fourteen other Papillions after his owner passed away in a hospital. Stan and a few others are all that is left of this group that need their forever homes. Stan is a little guy just ten pounds so he can easily fit in a corner of your chair but hed rather be a fixture on your lap. This affectionate boy is very playful and happy, full of energy, but prefers to cuddle more than anything. After you romp and play in the morning, hell be ready for an afternoon nap with you in your recliner. How great is that? Then when you wake up you can cuddle some more and marvel at those ears and say Stan is the man. Blues ID number is A047561 and Stans is A054031. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th Street. The Center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. Allergic to Dogs? Are you one of many individuals who would love to share life with a dog, but think you are allergic to dogs? What you are allergic to is the dander produced when double coated breeds shed their coats. Although no breed of dog is totally dander-free, dogs with single layer coats produce significantly less dander than their double coated brethren. You can check out the following breeds and their mixes at shelter or welfare groups to see if you can tolerate the small amount of dander they produce. If you can, you can then adopt one into your loving home and live happily ever after. So check out these breeds before you say to yourself I can never have a dog: Basenji, Bedlington Terrier, Bichon Frise, Chinese Crested, Italian Greyhound, Irish Water Spaniel, Kerry Blue Terrier, Maltese, Poodle, Portuguese Water Dog, Schnauzer all sizes (Giant, Standard, and Miniature), Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and the Xoloitzcuintli, also known as the Mexican Hairless. SPCA News The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Our first meeting of the new season will be Thursday, September 15th. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for that date and come out and join us as we start our new year. Were lining up guest speakers of interest to all animal lovers. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B SW 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at (352) 3620985 to find out more. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

without jobs increased by 104 to 6,999 because, at the same time, its labor force grew by 790 to 59,428 and the number of employed rose by 686 to 52,429. Levy Countys unemployment rate dropped from 11.6 to 11.3 percent over the month. While its labor force decreased by 79 to 17,352 and the number of employed was virtually unchanged at 15,396, down 16, those without jobs fell by 63 to 1,956. Marion Countys unemployment rate fell onetenth of one percent to 12.7 percent. The countys labor force expanded by 89 to 133,855 actually 516 more than in June 2011 the number of those employed rose by 147 to 116,836 569 more than at the beginning of the summer while those without jobs fell by 58 to 17,019. Compared to August 2010, Marion Countys unemployment rate is down from 14 percent, Citrus County is down from 13.1 percent and Levy County is down from 12.5 percent. Becky Rust, AWIs chief economist, said that the May-August period is the lowest unemployment in Florida since August 2009. The states unemployment rate remained virtually unchanged month-to-month, at 10.9 percent, down from 12.1 percent a year ago. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 10.7 percent. The national rate remained unchanged at 9.1 percent. Rust said that since July, 18 of Floridas 67 counties experienced an increase in unemployment rates, 10 held steady and 39 posted declines. She added that over the year, only six counties saw an increase while 61 counties unemployment rates dropped. Comparing year-to-year rates, Rust said, shows the improved economy while monthly unemployment rates may have sharp fluctuations due to seasonal events that follow a somewhat regular pattern each year such as tourism, agricultural harvest, holidays and the opening and closing of schools. For the fifth consecutive month, the Ocala Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) held its ranking of fourth highest unemployment rate among the states 23 MSAs down from second in March and third in April behind Palm Coasts 14.9 percent, Sebastian-Vero Beach at 13.9 percent and Port St. Lucie at 12.8 percent. Among Floridas 67 counties, Marion Countys unemployment ranking dropped a notch to eighth highest, while Citrus Countys ranking dropped from 18th to 19th and Levy County fell two places to 23. Rust described job growth as flat and fragile adding that struggles with the manufacturing industry and housing continues to be the main drag on the national and state economy. Total nonagricultural employment for the Ocala MSA was 90,200, up 1,600 jobs since July and down 100 jobs over the year. Year-to-year gains were reported in professional and businesses services, at 7,600 up 100 since August 2010; and education and health services, at 13,800 up 400 jobs over the year. Four industries in the Ocala MSA showed no change over the month: wholesale trade, financial activities, leisure and hospitality, and other employment. Five industries posted job losses: mining, logging and construction; manufacturing; transportation, warehousing and utilities; information services; and government. Local government, at 14,100 is down 200 jobs over the year but up 1,700 since July. Workforce Connection serves career seekers by planning and coordinating training, education and placement opportunities and also provides business development services such as on-the-job training, paid internships and other financial incentives.

The event of hope and healing, compassion and universal brotherhood was held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ. Hindus, Jews, Christians. Muslims, Buddhists, Bahai, humanists and others listened to readings from the tenets of their faiths with 10year-old Veda Lakshmi Narayan reading both in Sanskrit and English. Other participants were Imam Zafer Sabawi, Islamic Center of Ocala; Rabbi Zeev Harari, Temple Beth Shalom ; Rev. Peggy Hostetler, Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living; Rev. Jim Bullock, retired pastor, Ft. King Presbyterian Church; Rev. Victor Valentine, assistant pastor, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist; and the host pastor and music director, Dr. Hal McSwain.

Soloists included Dale Berman Garfinkel and Megan Thompson Ms. Thompson also sang with Katherine Barber, Pamela Michele and Beth McCall who comprise the Central Florida Master Choir Womens Ensemble.

A Baby Shower! Certainly, everyone knows that OTOW is a 55and-older community. So, the mere mention of a baby shower brings quizzical looks. Some folks, on hearing about the shower, smirked and said, Whats the punch line? Well, the Pickleball Club can attest to the fact that one of its members is certainly expecting a baby. Kim Makay, at this writing, is about three weeks from delivering a son to be named Crosby. Kim continues to play pickleball regularly and the club members watch in awe as she navigates the court and still is a formidable threat behind the paddle. Crosbys soon-to-be-Dad, Tom Butler, had to rent out the house in OTOW and move the family to a development that allows children. On Wednesday, Sept. 14, the pickleball club members held a baby shower/picnic in the OTOW picnic pavilion. Approximately 30 attended ball players, spouses, and friends. Kim and Tom received gift certificates, toys, layette items, and the BIG present a musical lighted crib mobile decorated with miniature pickleball paddles. One of the pickleball players, Rick Vogel, created the mobile decorations and also crafted a plaque dedicated to Crosby that was engraved Crosby Born to Play. The plaque held a tiny pickleball paddle and some baby-sized pickleballs. A lot of good food was eaten, some funny games were played, lots of conversations were held, and a good time was had by all. So, if you hear about a baby shower in OTOW, you can assure everyone that it was, in fact, true. PHOTOGRAPH BY RICK VOGELMother-tobe Kim Makay receives a crib mobile that was especially designed to highlight her interest in pickleball. The mobile has miniature pickleball paddles and babysized pickleballs. REMODELING 000967L Visit Our Website coveconstructioninc.us COVE CONSTRUCTION, INC. COVE CONSTRUCTION, INC.

avoid fines and citations; get your pet his/her rabies vaccine and license in one quick stop at the Marion County Animal Center during business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Rabies vaccines are available at the Animal Center on a walk-in basis for $10. Licenses for sterilized animals are $5 and $35 for non-sterilized animals. If you are bitten or scratched by a stray or unvaccinated animal, you can still take important steps to protect yourself by following these tips from the Marion County Health Department: Seek medical attention immediately from your healthcare provider or the Marion County Health Department. Call Animal Services at 352-671-8727 to report the bite. If you cant locate or dont know the animal that bit you, you will most likely receive a rabies vaccination as a precaution. Call the Health Departments Environmental Health Unit at 352-629-0137 for more information. Residents should also keep these other important tips in mind to help their pets avoid rabies: Do not allow your pets to run free. Follow leash laws by keeping pets and livestock secured on your property. Never feed wild or stray animals and avoid attracting them with outdoors food sources, such as uncovered trash. If your animal is attacked by a wild, stray or unvaccinated animal, do not examine your pet for injuries without wearing gloves. Wash your pet with soap and water to remove saliva from the attacking animal. Do not let your animal come into contact with other animals or people until the situation can be handled by Animal Services or the Health Department. To learn more about rabies vaccines for your pets, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/animalservices.ht m. For information on how to protect yourself after an animal bite, contact the Marion County Health Department at 352-629-0137.

Going back to my school years in northern New Jersey, I have always followed the progress of teams where I live as well as teams I have become acquainted with over the years. Lately, though, Ive begun to wonder whether some high school sports, particularly football and basketball, are getting out of hand. Last Friday, there was a doubleheader at Bradenton Manatee with the host team being in the first game and Tampa Plant in the second. The visiting teams were Don Bosco of Ramsey, N.J., listed as the nations No. 1 team, and Bergen Catholic of Oradell, N.J., which happens to be my old school. Don Bosco won the New Jersey state championship in non-public Group IV last year (New Jersey is smart enough to separate the public and private school playoffs, dont get me started on that), and Bergen Catholic only lost two games last year, both to Don Bosco. So what are these two teams doing in Florida? Theyre not alone among teams making trips. Just go through ESPN on Thursday and Friday nights (and all the related stations such as ESPNU, etc.) and youll find any number of interstate high school football games being nationally televised. Although it wasnt televised, right here in Marion County, one of our schools, Vanguard, played at Carrollton, Ga., in its opener. Most of these teams that travel raise the funds on their own and dont take from school budgets. But even so, how do you motivate kids to win a state championship when theyve already traveled all over the country. Basketball is even worse. Christmas tournaments in Florida, including one big one here in Ocala, attract teams from all over the nation. The Kingdom of the Sun event at Vanguard is a great way to spend the week after Christmas watching some of the top players in the country. Other notable tournaments in Florida are the Kreul Classic in South Florida, the Kissimmee Rotary tournament, and the City of Palms event in Fort Myers. All of these tourneys have some of the top prospects in the country and thats the key word: prospects. In basketball, its all about exposure for the players who want to advance. But that isnt the case necessarily in football. Its just teams wanting to showcase themselves and increase their national rankings. And maybe thats the problem. Maybe there shouldnt be any national rankings for high school teams. Win your state championship thats what you should aim for. National publications and networks are, in my estimation, overexposing these high school athletes. High school sports should get back to being just an extracurricular activity, without national fanfare. For the record, my old high school lost a close game Friday night, and after that they were headed to Miami to watch the Dolphins and a couple of Bergen Catholic graduates. Its a nice trip for the kids I just hope its being done for the right reasons.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

As Americans, many if not most of us can recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our national anthem. Most could probably name a few of our constitutional rights, such as the right to move freely, assemble peacefully, bear arms, express or publish ones opinion and to practice ones freedoms, to name a few. And the phrase I plead the Fifth has been used by many at one time or another. But what about the right to define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the laws of nations? Or that excises and duties must be uniform throughout the United States? Last Saturday recognized the 224th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, a document drafted by our founding forefathers in Philadelphia creating a Republic that respects the sovereignty of the states and limits the national government by specific grants of power, separation of powers and a system of checks and balances. The Constitution, which starts with We the People, is significant not only as a founding charter of the United States, and as a bulwark of freedom, but also in that the underlying assumptions are different from what preceded it the Magna Carta. In it, the barons went to the king and demanded that he grant them rights. In the Constitution, the assumption is that the people already have those rights. These very important words that are the frame of our Constitution are what our great nation is based upon. Here are a few additional facts about the Constitution: Did you know? There are seven articles followed by 27 amendments. The first 10 amendments are known as the Bill of Rights. Only 12 of the 13 original states actually took part in writing the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island did not attend the Constitutional Convention, though it eventually was the last state to ratify the document in 1790. Chief draftsmen of the U.S. Constitution were James Madison and Gouverneur Morris. To ratify an amendment, three-fourths of the state legislatures approve it and three-fourths of ratifying conventions in states approve it. Lets make sure we are thankful for our freedoms, our liberties and our pursuit of happiness. And, yes, changes have been made over the years to the document. And, yes, it is not perfect. But it is the beacon for us as a nation and sets us apart from the rest of the world.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Lets honor our humble beginnings High school sports out of control? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Corporations as peopleWhile I was attending Community College in California long ago years, I lived and worked near a famous tourist attraction, The Winchester Mystery House. Remember the Winchester rifle? The mysteries surrounding this house were the many construction and decorating oddities. For example, there were screen doors on indoor doorways, gold door knobs and stairs that led to the upper corner of a room leading nowhere. Many others, but that is not the point. There were many stories circulating about why the odd features were there. Some said that Mrs. Winchester was trying to keep the spirit of her husband around and that as long as she was having work done on the house his spirit would remain. My favorite was that, being in the great depression, she had many of the local journeymen working on the house to keep them working and supporting their families. Nice story. But what I am leading up to is, since the Supreme Court of the United States has, in its great wisdom, declared that corporations are people, wouldnt it be nice if they would act like people. They do, of course, when it is convenient or beneficial to them, such as contributions to political candidates who might and usually do support legislation that is good for the companys bottom line. Right now, all those big companies are holding on to cash. I might ask, why? What will they use it for? More political contributions? And what is money anyway? It is only paper and, more commonly, just a number on a ledger sheet. They sure arent using it to help our struggling economy. They lay off people to save money when they should be hiring back all those employees they have let go. More people working, more money to be spent, more need for goods and services and back to the need for more jobs and more workers. I have heard excuses, such as, we are uncertain about our taxes and benefit packages (i.e. medical coverage expenses). All future is uncertain. But unless we take some action, whether it appears to be the best choice at the moment or not, our future will become even more uncertain. If corporations insist on being treated as people they should act like it. They cant have it both ways. Take a lesson from Mrs. Winchester and do something to help. J ames M errick O calaSend sinkhole bills to water companiesI recently read an article where Citizens Property Insurance Company wants as much as a 400% increase in property insurance to cover sinkhole claims. Now, apparently, we have an effective insurance lobby in Tallahassee or a preponderance of legislators with ties to the insurance industry. In my corporate climbing days, I lived in 12 states and not one of them had a sinkhole problem, except Florida. The Floridan Aquifer Company tried, in 1997, to get its fingers into Savannah, Georgia. But, through the efforts of the city and county commission, a state senator and the executive director of a conservation association (me), we kept them out. Their plan was to pump water out of the South Branch of the Savannah River into underground caverns, (called aquifers) and then pump the water back out and sell it to the residents of the area. Remember, Aquifers are nothing more than underground caverns. At that time practically no one was acquainted with aquifers. Engineers from both sides didnt consider what would happen when water was pumped into these caverns under pressure and then pumped back out under pressure. The space the water had occupied would easily collapse. The by-product would be sinkholes. The person who questioned this was me, again, as all this pumping would weaken the underground caverns and rock strata. The issue was soundly defeated by those Georgia legislative parties. Of course Florida could have reapplied and with new people making up the commissions, who knows where it now stands.

Social Security and Ponzi schemes have one common characteristic. Both are pyramids which require increasing amounts of income from contributors to keep up payments to a growing number of beneficiaries. Some of the new funds coming into a Ponzi scheme are paid to members as investment income, which they are not. The rest of the incoming funds are kept by the Ponzi founder for good living and accumulation of personal wealth. The scheme can continue only if the number of contributors at the bottom of the pyramid continues to grow. Most Social Security taxes are paid out immediately to beneficiaries. Surpluses are spent by Congress just like other tax receipts. Social Security can continue only if there are enough workers to support increasing numbers of beneficiaries or Congress pays back the money it borrowed over the past 50 years. In the early years of Social Security there were 45 workers for each recipient of benefits. Today there are only three workers for each recipient. And Congress owes the system $2.6 trillion dollars, which is a nonsense figure, because government owes the money to itself. The basic difference between the two pyramids is that a Ponzi scheme is a fraud intended to enrich the perpetrator by deceiving the investors. Social Security is a social welfare program intended to prevent widespread poverty among senior citizens, which was common for many years leading up to and during the great depression. To garner favor with voters, Washington politicians kept adding benefits to Social Security without increasing taxes disability, early retirement, and cost-of-living adjustments. Nothing dishonest was intended, just deceptive silence about where money for the additional benefits would come from. Politicians who speak ill of Social Security risk becoming unelectable by high voltage execution on the thirdrail. That would be an appropriate punishment for all the politicians who have led voters to believe that FICA taxes are premiums on health insurance and retirement annuities, which they are not and never have been. To finance the Vietnam War and pay for his Great Welfare Society, President Lyndon Johnson convinced Congress to transfer FICA income to the general treasury, where it became plain old income taxes. In return the Social Security Administration received a ledger in which to keep track of FICA funds borrowed by the Treasury. The ledger was kept in an otherwise empty file cabinet which later became known as the mythical lock box another political deception. Eventual disclosure of the empty file cabinet led Treasury to issue IOUs to Social Security, an empty public relations gesture, because Congress will have to borrow or tax to redeem the $2.6 trillion in IOUs. Why isnt Social Security a Ponzi scheme? Because Congress has the power to tax and borrow to pay back funds it spent irresponsibly over many years. Unlike a Ponzi scheme, Social Security is a popular and successful merrygo-round of do-good deceptions, for which no one will ever be sent to prison. sula; a water state built on unstable strata which has an abundance of lakes and rivers. Remember the battle between North Florida and South Georgia a while back over water rights? Companies like Marion County Utilities and other water companies are part of the Floridan Aquifer system of managing water in our state. If anyone should be paying for sinkhole insurance claims, it should be those water companies that are the primary destructors of our underground caverns. To think, with what little underground stability in Florida, to pump water into underground caverns and destabilize those caverns by then pumping the water back out is playing with fire. But as long as water companies and insurance companies are receiving their bucket of blood, thats all that counts. If and when we might receive increased property insurance bills, send them to your water company. In fact, a class action suit by Florida residents against the insurance companies and the irresponsible legislature for allowing these increases is in order. So American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) get on your horse and get going in the name of Florida residents.

Today marks the first day of autumn. Already high temperatures have been gradually decreasing, days are getting shorter, and breezes have picked up. Most of the time it is a pleasure to be outside. The exception is when the next tropical storm or hurricane approaches and we get some bad weather. Since there havent been any real hurricanes here for about 40 years or so, dont expect any soon. All we get is rain and some wind which bring us to Pun Alley stories. Hurricane and himmicanes Hurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are alternately named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there. Power flower After the tropical storm she walked over to the one single flower, still standing proud and tall, firmly planted in its given space. All the others had been blown away; they would return by next year. For now, her garden was, simply, this aster. Ace in the hole Driving about looking at horse farms a couple wound up on a dirt road. Whey came to a muddy hollow in the road the car got stuck. After trying to get the car out and failing, a farmer came down the lane driving several workhorses before him. The farmer offered to pull the car out of the mud for $50. The husband accepted, and soon the car was free. The farmer said to the husband, Youre the tenth car Ive helped out of the mud today. The husband asked, When do you have time to do your farm work? At night? No, the farmer replied, Night is when I put the water in the hole. Raindrops Summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. Have you ever noticed how groups of lions tend to move on just before autumn? Of course, pride goeth before the fall. There is always a demand for flat house paint after any hurricane. Up north the leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees: the last leaf and the first football coach. John used to be a watchmaker. It was a great job and he made his own hours. The pogo stick was invented in 1926, but it made many people jumpy. I know a math teacher who also teaches dance. She calls her class logarhythms. When the electricity went off during a storm, the students at the school were de-lighted. Two weathermen each broke an arm and a leg in an accident, and called from the hospital about the four casts. If youre looking for oranges on an apple tree you will have a fruitless search. She criticized my apartment, so I knocked her flat. Autumn is a season for big decisions, like whether or not its too late to start spring-cleaning. Ruth tried to learn how to drive a stick shift but couldnt locate the manual. Penny thoughts Out in the forest two old single rednecks were looking at a Pennys catalog and admiring the models. One old timer said, Have you seen the beautiful girls in this catalog? The second old guy stated, Yes, theyre beautiful. And look at the price! The first one with wide eyes, said, Wow, they arent very expensive. At this price, Im buying one. The second old guy replied, Good idea! Order one and if shes as beautiful as she is in the catalog, Ill get one too. Three weeks later, the first old redneck asked his friend, Did you ever receive the girl you ordered from the Pennys catalog? The second redneck replied, No, but it shouldnt be long now. I got her clothes yesterday! Stalking cattle Corned beef is from cows that have been raised in cornfields. They graze on the corn and get fattened and ready for slaughter. In the fall, just before the harvest, the cattle are rounded up. Unlike cattle grazing in grasslands, the corned beef are difficult to see because the corn stalks are so tall. A specially trained dog, known as a corn dog, assists in the roundup.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

The thing we could not quite figure out is, are we middle-class? And if we are middle-class, what in the world does it mean? And, when do we graduate? In high school, I was neither in the middle of my class nor at the upper end. Unfortunately, I did not even come in last in my graduating class, for someone beat me to that fine distinction. My educational career was not a class act, to be sure. I understand what the word middle, means. And I know the word, class. What does it mean when you put them both together and use it in a sentence? When Im in the middle of a project, I am not at the beginning and the end is a far piece away. When I hear the word class, I am thinking of homework, teachers and all that jazz. Who wants to be a teenager the second time around? Ive had enough of that in my lifetime. Im not quite sure about all this middle-class politicalizing and I sure do not want to be the target of some political agenda. I would like to sponsor a bill that would outlaw this phrase for any elected official. If perchance they do mention the phrase, its a go-to-jail and dont collect $100 act. Maybe we can come up with a new term. We have the term racist that people use at their discretion. Maybe we can coin a phrase like middle-classist and forbid its use in polite society. Of course, how many politicians are really found in polite society? Or, how many polite society venues would welcome a politician? If we try hard enough, we can make it one of the most offensive phrases in the English language. So offensive, that people will stop using it. Of course, they would have to come up with some other phrase and then we are back in first grade again. To be honest, this problem of the middle-classist is not a Republican or a Democrat issue. One side is as guilty as the other side. And, as we all know, a politician by any other name is still a rascal. Every politician courts the middle-class, and what a blushing bride she makes. All through the election, this middle-classist politician will romance those he believes Mr. Politician, leave the middle-class alone OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

are middle-class. And many of the middle-class falls for it. The courtship is wonderful; its the marriage that really stinks. This is the only case in which I would cast an approving eye toward divorce. The middle-class raises most of the money that gets these politicians elected who then in turn refuses returning the favor. After elected this middle-classist politician chums around with high-class people and then passes legislation that only benefits the lower class people whoever they are. Wherefore art thou, O middle-class? Certainly not on the agenda of this middleclassist politician. The middle-class comes in at tax time. Hooray for the middle-class. I wonder if anybody has ever given the thought that most of the money in Washington, D.C. has come from this group called the middle-class. The middle-class can help the neophyte politician get his political dream job with all the benefits that goes with it but the politician does not seem to know how to help other people get jobs for themselves. History has shown us that they know how to spend money but when it comes to saving money, they come to a stupefied and stuttering halt. Middle-class money earned by middle-class people working at middleclass jobs goes to Washington, D.C. to be used by middle-classist politicians for everything but middle-class concerns. When will the insanity stop? In the Old Testament, the Jewish law required that every seventh year be a year of rest. Although I am not Jewish, I think there is something to be said for this kind of rest. I propose that the middle-class be given its due sabbatical. How many years have we been working and then giving our money to Washington, D.C.? We deserve a rest. If these middle-classist politicians look so kindly toward the middleclass, why not give all of us middle-class people a sabbatical where we do not pay any taxes. We certainly will work, but all the money we would normally send to Washington, D.C., we put in our own pocket. Now, thats change I can believe in. In fact, I have biblical authority for all of this. Authority from the mouth of Jesus himself. And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods. And they marveled at him (Mark 12:17 KJV). Not all those middleclassist politicians in Washington give a second thought to the middleclass. I think it is about time we gave them as much thought. I believe the primary problem in America is that we no longer know what belongs to Caesar and what belongs to God. If we can ever figure that out again, happy days are here again.The Rev. James L.

Alast minute reminder, the 2011 Flu Shot Clinic (brought to you by the Oak Run Medical Team) will be Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Palm Grove auditorium. Maxim Health will administer the inoculations and all Oak Run residents, their guests and DECCA employees are welcome to come to the clinic. We want you all to stay healthy and continue to enjoy the great life in Oak Run. Everyone must bring a picture ID, your Medicare card, if applicable, or other insurance card if Medicare is not your primary insurance. If you dont have Medicare or other insurance that has made arrangements with Maxim, cash or checks are accepted. The flu shot costs $30 and the pneumonia shot is $65. The latest information is that you only need one pneumonia shot after age 65 and Maxim will not give a second shot. If your doctor feels differently, ask him or her to give you the pneumonia inoculation at your next visit. If traditional Medicare, including Part B coverage, is your primary insurance, Medicare will cover all costs. Several other insurance companies (but not all) have contracted with Maxim and will cover most fees. A poster will be available the day of the clinic so you can see if your insurance is on their list. This issue only concerns those who do not have traditional Medicare with Part B coverage as their primary insurance. In past years some people have become upset when told their particular insurance did not cover the shot. Remember that not all doctors will accept all insurance. Likewise, Maxim Health will be reimbursed only by some insurance and not others. So please try to be understanding. For those not enrolled in traditional Medicare but rather a Medicare Advantage Plan we want you to have the following information. Many of these types of plans offer what is called PFFS (Private Fee for Service). If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan that has PFFS printed on the card it will be accepted by Maxim at the clinic. In addition, all Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Summacare, Healthspring, and AvMed plans are accepted although some do not include the pneumonia shot. This is the most-up-to date information available at this time. You may have a friend or neighbor who would like to join you at the Palm Grove clinic. Please bring them along. Way Off Broadway In St. Louis at the Fair In Way Off Broadways play, In St. Louis at the Fair, Cheryl Gaines as Miss Thornton and Arline Raguso as Miss Hathaway, the leading fair authorities, make it very difficult for the dining room staff, thinking they should have employed them in the soda fountain not in the French dining room captained by the world renowned French chef Pierre, who never shows up. Chef Louie (Lou Winkelman) and his side kick, cook Hazel (Clara Laskay), parlay their cooking expertise to make the restaurant a smashing success using their old-fashioned Midwestern cooking style to win over the crowd. The 1904 fair celebrated the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase. 1,500 temporary buildings were erected of staff, a mixture of plaster of paris and hemp and all were electrified, for the first time in the world. Festival Halls organ was the largest ever built. New foods introduced were ice cream cones, hamburgers, hot dogs, peanut butter, ice tea and cotton candy. The fair hosted the Olympics, the first ever held in the United States. It was the largest Worlds Fair ever, covering 1272 acres connected by 75 miles of roads and walkways. Its Ferris wheel could carry 2160 people at one time, rising 275 feet in the air. Tickets for the play will be on sale in the Orchid Club lobby as follows: tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 23, from 8 to 10 a.m. and also from 6 to 6:45 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 4 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 8, from 8 to 10 a.m. They will also be on sale at Palm Grove on Monday, Oct. 3, from 10 to 11 a.m. Tickets for the play are selling fast and if you cannot make one of the sales please call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 who will make arrangements for you to pick them up elsewhere. Pancake Breakfast From 8 to 10 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 24, you can get the best pancakes in town at the Orchid Club. At a price of only $2.50 this pancake breakfast, which includes sausage, juice and coffee or tea, is a real treat and a real bargain. White Elephant Sale Oak Run is having a white elephant sale at Palm Grove on Saturday, Oct.1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come buy that something special that your neighbor no longer needs but which could be your treasure. Paul and Emily Pike, assisted by Ed and Flo Feltman, will have lunch available, consisting of hot dogs with sauerkraut and chicken, or seafood, salad croissants.

Before play, 3 hole numbers were picked out of a hat by the tournament chairmans husband. No one knew what holes had been chosen. After play, the scores from those 3 holes were deducted from the players net score. The winners were first flight: Noreen Salo 1st place, Elsa Berbig and Sylvia Zappia tied for 2nd place; second flight: Roseann Lavacca1st place, Maureen Edwards 2nd place, Janet Tully and Lynn Houghton tied for 3rd place; third flight: Arlene Klann 1st place, Leslie Rizzo and Kathy Kollar tied for 2nd place. Sheila Adams was Closest to the Pin on hole 3. The weather was cooler and we all enjoyed the Florida sunshine and low humidity. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The game on the 16th of September was slightly different than it has been in the past, with the field being divided into two flights based on the choice of tees. For purposes of identification we will call them the white and red flights. Within each flight the game was the usual three best net. The winners of the white flight were Emmet Dowling, John Terry, Al Prachel, and Tom Ducz with a score of 191. In second with a score of 195 were Hal Loomis, Sam Sample, Ken Frandsen, and Jan Flickinger. Tied for third with scores of 201 were the teams of Jim Lacey, Steve Kollar, Jack Edwards and the team of Bob Gray, Gene Topp, Bill Start. The winners of the red flight were Dick Berbig, Ed Simnowitz, and Duke ( Long Ball) Slayton with a score of 178. Second with a score of 187 were George Gariepy, Dick Rizzo, John Foutty, and Paul Valois. Third with a score of 189 were Bob Gildea, Steve Szabo, John Cerlenko, and Joe Paller. Congratulations to this winning team. We dont think testing will be necessary to verify the score, as the three of you played outstanding golf. Closest to the pin were Mickey Klein, Emmett Dowling, Ed Simnowitz and Dick Houghton. The greens were in perfect shape, having been rolled and cut perfectly. Thanks to the greens keepers for their good work in keeping the course in good shape. See you all next time.

PAGE 13

In this brilliant and fascinating book Swanson registers an entire nations agony after the assassination of its beloved president, Abraham Lincoln. As he follows Lincolns funeral train, he also tracks the Confederacys defeated president Jefferson Davis in his flight from Richmond to his capture in Georgia. Swanson finds some remarkable similarities between the two presidents. Both were born in Kentucky, both lost youthful loves Ann Rutledge, Lincolns doomed sweetheart, and first wife Sarah Knox Taylor who died 12 weeks after marrying Davis. And both men lost young sons they adored. On April 15, the day after Lincolns assassination, Davis knew nothing about the bloody carnage in Washington. That morning Davis had no idea that, last night in the Union capitol, events beyond his knowledge or control would now reach out to affect his fate. Within hours his archenemy Andrew Johnson, an implacable foe of the planter class, would ascend to the presidency. The South could expect no mercy from him. According to the available facts, which Swanson presents painstakingly and without judgment, a puzzling portrait of Davis emerges. He calmly retreats from Richmond and sets out for Danville and other Southern destinations in an unhurried fashion, rallying citizens to continue the fight, certain in his own heart that the Confederacy could still win. He had already dismissed Lees surrender as a mistake. Crowds were enthusiastic until he reached Charlotte, North Carolina where he could scarcely find a place to stay for the night. North Carolinians had lost more men than any other Southern state in Picketts charge at Gettysburg. Meanwhile, grieving Northerners wondered how to honor Lincoln and decided on a death pageant. In the circuitous route to Springfield, Lincolns body became a symbol of the cost of the Civil War. Along the way flagwaving Americans expressed their love for the slain president as embalmers applied a chalky substance to the body and smothered the coffin in fresh flowers to mask the odor of a decomposing body.Friday, September 23, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Trivia Quiz Night begins for residents Are you interested in something different for the coming fall and winter season?

Important vision testing for small children, an upcoming charity event, the return of the Big Red Bus, and entertainment and travel opportunities abound in OTOW communities. OTOW Lions Club OTOW Lions Club members participated in the Kids Sight event at Paddock Mall on Sept.17. This program involves the testing of children ages 1 to 6 years of age for amblyopic, commonly known as lazy eye. Caught early enough, a simple eye patch can correct this vision problem, and every parent or guardian of young children should have this screening test done just to make certain no problem exists. The OTOW Lions Clubs Annual Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1 at noon (doors open at 11 a.m.) in the H&R Ballroom. In addition to a wonderful meal and an entertaining fashion show, there will be gift baskets and door prizes. Tickets are on sale through today (Sept. 23) at 10 a.m. The cost is $20 per person and proceeds go to the Florida Center for the Blind and other Lions Club charities.

Important vision testing for small children, an upcoming charity event, the return of the Big Red Bus, and entertainment and travel opportunities abound in OTOW communities. OTOW Lions Club OTOW Lions Club members participated in the Kids Sight event at Paddock Mall on Sept.17. This program involves the testing of children ages 1 to 6 years of age for amblyopic, commonly known as lazy eye. Caught early enough, a simple eye patch can correct this vision problem, and every parent or guardian of young children should have this screening test done just to make certain no problem exists. The OTOW Lions Clubs Annual Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1 at noon (doors open at 11 a.m.) in the H&R Ballroom. In addition to a wonderful meal and an entertaining fashion show, there will be gift baskets and door prizes. Tickets are on sale through today (Sept. 23) at 10 a.m. The cost is $20 per person and proceeds go to the Florida Center for the Blind and other Lions Club charities.

In this brilliant and fascinating book Swanson registers an entire nations agony after the assassination of its beloved president, Abraham Lincoln. As he follows Lincolns funeral train, he also tracks the Confederacys defeated president Jefferson Davis in his flight from Richmond to his capture in Georgia. Swanson finds some remarkable similarities between the two presidents. Both were born in Kentucky, both lost youthful loves Ann Rutledge, Lincolns doomed sweetheart, and first wife Sarah Knox Taylor who died 12 weeks after marrying Davis. And both men lost young sons they adored. On April 15, the day after Lincolns assassination, Davis knew nothing about the bloody carnage in Washington. That morning Davis had no idea that, last night in the Union capitol, events beyond his knowledge or control would now reach out to affect his fate. Within hours his archenemy Andrew Johnson, an implacable foe of the planter class, would ascend to the presidency. The South could expect no mercy from him. According to the available facts, which Swanson presents painstakingly and without judgment, a puzzling portrait of Davis emerges. He calmly retreats from Richmond and sets out for Danville and other Southern destinations in an unhurried fashion, rallying citizens to continue the fight, certain in his own heart that the Confederacy could still win. He had already dismissed Lees surrender as a mistake. Crowds were enthusiastic until he reached Charlotte, North Carolina where he could scarcely find a place to stay for the night. North Carolinians had lost more men than any other Southern state in Picketts charge at Gettysburg. Meanwhile, grieving Northerners wondered how to honor Lincoln and decided on a death pageant. In the circuitous route to Springfield, Lincolns body became a symbol of the cost of the Civil War. Along the way flagwaving Americans expressed their love for the slain president as embalmers applied a chalky substance to the body and smothered the coffin in fresh flowers to mask the odor of a decomposing body.Friday, September 23, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Trivia Quiz Night begins for residents Are you interested in something different for the coming fall and winter season?

Alast minute reminder, the 2011 Flu Shot Clinic (brought to you by the Oak Run Medical Team) will be Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Palm Grove auditorium. Maxim Health will administer the inoculations and all Oak Run residents, their guests and DECCA employees are welcome to come to the clinic. We want you all to stay healthy and continue to enjoy the great life in Oak Run. Everyone must bring a picture ID, your Medicare card, if applicable, or other insurance card if Medicare is not your primary insurance. If you dont have Medicare or other insurance that has made arrangements with Maxim, cash or checks are accepted. The flu shot costs $30 and the pneumonia shot is $65. The latest information is that you only need one pneumonia shot after age 65 and Maxim will not give a second shot. If your doctor feels differently, ask him or her to give you the pneumonia inoculation at your next visit. If traditional Medicare, including Part B coverage, is your primary insurance, Medicare will cover all costs. Several other insurance companies (but not all) have contracted with Maxim and will cover most fees. A poster will be available the day of the clinic so you can see if your insurance is on their list. This issue only concerns those who do not have traditional Medicare with Part B coverage as their primary insurance. In past years some people have become upset when told their particular insurance did not cover the shot. Remember that not all doctors will accept all insurance. Likewise, Maxim Health will be reimbursed only by some insurance and not others. So please try to be understanding. For those not enrolled in traditional Medicare but rather a Medicare Advantage Plan we want you to have the following information. Many of these types of plans offer what is called PFFS (Private Fee for Service). If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan that has PFFS printed on the card it will be accepted by Maxim at the clinic. In addition, all Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Summacare, Healthspring, and AvMed plans are accepted although some do not include the pneumonia shot. This is the most-up-to date information available at this time. You may have a friend or neighbor who would like to join you at the Palm Grove clinic. Please bring them along. Way Off Broadway In St. Louis at the Fair In Way Off Broadways play, In St. Louis at the Fair, Cheryl Gaines as Miss Thornton and Arline Raguso as Miss Hathaway, the leading fair authorities, make it very difficult for the dining room staff, thinking they should have employed them in the soda fountain not in the French dining room captained by the world renowned French chef Pierre, who never shows up. Chef Louie (Lou Winkelman) and his side kick, cook Hazel (Clara Laskay), parlay their cooking expertise to make the restaurant a smashing success using their old-fashioned Midwestern cooking style to win over the crowd. The 1904 fair celebrated the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase. 1,500 temporary buildings were erected of staff, a mixture of plaster of paris and hemp and all were electrified, for the first time in the world. Festival Halls organ was the largest ever built. New foods introduced were ice cream cones, hamburgers, hot dogs, peanut butter, ice tea and cotton candy. The fair hosted the Olympics, the first ever held in the United States. It was the largest Worlds Fair ever, covering 1272 acres connected by 75 miles of roads and walkways. Its Ferris wheel could carry 2160 people at one time, rising 275 feet in the air.

Before play, 3 hole numbers were picked out of a hat by the tournament chairmans husband. No one knew what holes had been chosen. After play, the scores from those 3 holes were deducted from the players net score. The winners were first flight: Noreen Salo 1st place, Elsa Berbig and Sylvia Zappia tied for 2nd place; second flight: Roseann Lavacca1st place, Maureen Edwards 2nd place, Janet Tully and Lynn Houghton tied for 3rd place; third flight: Arlene Klann 1st place, Leslie Rizzo and Kathy Kollar tied for 2nd place. Sheila Adams was Closest to the Pin on hole 3. The weather was cooler and we all enjoyed the Florida sunshine and low humidity. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The game on the 16th of September was slightly different than it has been in the past, with the field being divided into two flights based on the choice of tees. For purposes of identification we will call them the white and red flights. Within each flight the game was the usual three best net. The winners of the white flight were Emmet Dowling, John Terry, Al Prachel, and Tom Ducz with a score of 191. In second with a score of 195 were Hal Loomis, Sam Sample, Ken Frandsen, and Jan Flickinger. Tied for third with scores of 201 were the teams of Jim Lacey, Steve Kollar, Jack Edwards and the team of Bob Gray, Gene Topp, Bill Start. The winners of the red flight were Dick Berbig, Ed Simnowitz, and Duke ( Long Ball) Slayton with a score of 178. Second with a score of 187 were George Gariepy, Dick Rizzo, John Foutty, and Paul Valois. Third with a score of 189 were Bob Gildea, Steve Szabo, John Cerlenko, and Joe Paller. Congratulations to this winning team. We dont think testing will be necessary to verify the score, as the three of you played outstanding golf. Closest to the pin were Mickey Klein, Emmett Dowling, Ed Simnowitz and Dick Houghton. The greens were in perfect shape, having been rolled and cut perfectly. Thanks to the greens keepers for their good work in keeping the course in good shape. See you all next time.

are middle-class. And many of the middle-class falls for it. The courtship is wonderful; its the marriage that really stinks. This is the only case in which I would cast an approving eye toward divorce. The middle-class raises most of the money that gets these politicians elected who then in turn refuses returning the favor. After elected this middle-classist politician chums around with high-class people and then passes legislation that only benefits the lower class people whoever they are. Wherefore art thou, O middle-class? Certainly not on the agenda of this middleclassist politician. The middle-class comes in at tax time. Hooray for the middle-class. I wonder if anybody has ever given the thought that most of the money in Washington, D.C. has come from this group called the middle-class. The middle-class can help the neophyte politician get his political dream job with all the benefits that goes with it but the politician does not seem to know how to help other people get jobs for themselves. History has shown us that they know how to spend money but when it comes to saving money, they come to a stupefied and stuttering halt. Middle-class money earned by middle-class people working at middleclass jobs goes to Washington, D.C. to be used by middle-classist politicians for everything but middle-class concerns. When will the insanity stop? In the Old Testament, the Jewish law required that every seventh year be a year of rest. Although I am not Jewish, I think there is something to be said for this kind of rest. I propose that the middle-class be given its due sabbatical. How many years have we been working and then giving our money to Washington, D.C.? We deserve a rest. If these middle-classist politicians look so kindly toward the middleclass, why not give all of us middle-class people a sabbatical where we do not pay any taxes. We certainly will work, but all the money we would normally send to Washington, D.C., we put in our own pocket. Now, thats change I can believe in. In fact, I have biblical authority for all of this. Authority from the mouth of Jesus himself. And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods. And they marveled at him (Mark 12:17 KJV). Not all those middleclassist politicians in Washington give a second thought to the middleclass. I think it is about time we gave them as much thought. I believe the primary problem in America is that we no longer know what belongs to Caesar and what belongs to God. If we can ever figure that out again, happy days are here again.The Rev. James L.

Today marks the first day of autumn. Already high temperatures have been gradually decreasing, days are getting shorter, and breezes have picked up. Most of the time it is a pleasure to be outside. The exception is when the next tropical storm or hurricane approaches and we get some bad weather. Since there havent been any real hurricanes here for about 40 years or so, dont expect any soon. All we get is rain and some wind which bring us to Pun Alley stories. Hurricane and himmicanes Hurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are alternately named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there. Power flower After the tropical storm she walked over to the one single flower, still standing proud and tall, firmly planted in its given space. All the others had been blown away; they would return by next year. For now, her garden was, simply, this aster. Ace in the hole Driving about looking at horse farms a couple wound up on a dirt road. Whey came to a muddy hollow in the road the car got stuck. After trying to get the car out and failing, a farmer came down the lane driving several workhorses before him. The farmer offered to pull the car out of the mud for $50. The husband accepted, and soon the car was free. The farmer said to the husband, Youre the tenth car Ive helped out of the mud today. The husband asked, When do you have time to do your farm work? At night? No, the farmer replied, Night is when I put the water in the hole. Raindrops Summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. Have you ever noticed how groups of lions tend to move on just before autumn? Of course, pride goeth before the fall. There is always a demand for flat house paint after any hurricane. Up north the leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees: the last leaf and the first football coach. John used to be a watchmaker. It was a great job and he made his own hours. The pogo stick was invented in 1926, but it made many people jumpy. I know a math teacher who also teaches dance. She calls her class logarhythms. When the electricity went off during a storm, the students at the school were de-lighted. Two weathermen each broke an arm and a leg in an accident, and called from the hospital about the four casts. If youre looking for oranges on an apple tree you will have a fruitless search. She criticized my apartment, so I knocked her flat. Autumn is a season for big decisions, like whether or not its too late to start spring-cleaning. Ruth tried to learn how to drive a stick shift but couldnt locate the manual. Penny thoughts Out in the forest two old single rednecks were looking at a Pennys catalog and admiring the models. One old timer said, Have you seen the beautiful girls in this catalog? The second old guy stated, Yes, theyre beautiful. And look at the price! The first one with wide eyes, said, Wow, they arent very expensive. At this price, Im buying one. The second old guy replied, Good idea! Order one and if shes as beautiful as she is in the catalog, Ill get one too. Three weeks later, the first old redneck asked his friend, Did you ever receive the girl you ordered from the Pennys catalog? The second redneck replied, No, but it shouldnt be long now. I got her clothes yesterday! Stalking cattle Corned beef is from cows that have been raised in cornfields. They graze on the corn and get fattened and ready for slaughter. In the fall, just before the harvest, the cattle are rounded up. Unlike cattle grazing in grasslands, the corned beef are difficult to see because the corn stalks are so tall. A specially trained dog, known as a corn dog, assists in the roundup.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

I can never remember using it in any conversations Ive ever had. In fact, the only time I hear the phrase is when some politician is speaking. From the context of the speech, I am quite sure he or she does not know what the phrase means, either. My wife and I were talking about that just this past week. The thing we could not quite figure out is, are we middle-class? And if we are middle-class, what in the world does it mean? And, when do we graduate? In high school, I was neither in the middle of my class nor at the upper end. Unfortunately, I did not even come in last in my graduating class, for someone beat me to that fine distinction. My educational career was not a class act, to be sure. I understand what the word middle, means. And I know the word, class. What does it mean when you put them both together and use it in a sentence? When Im in the middle of a project, I am not at the beginning and the end is a far piece away. When I hear the word class, I am thinking of homework, teachers and all that jazz. Who wants to be a teenager the second time around? Ive had enough of that in my lifetime. Im not quite sure about all this middle-class politicalizing and I sure do not want to be the target of some political agenda. I would like to sponsor a bill that would outlaw this phrase for any elected official. If perchance they do mention the phrase, its a go-to-jail and dont collect $100 act. Maybe we can come up with a new term. We have the term racist that people use at their discretion. Maybe we can coin a phrase like middle-classist and forbid its use in polite society. Of course, how many politicians are really found in polite society? Or, how many polite society venues would welcome a politician? If we try hard enough, we can make it one of the most offensive phrases in the English language. So offensive, that people will stop using it. Of course, they would have to come up with some other phrase and then we are back in first grade again. To be honest, this problem of the middle-classist is not a Republican or a Democrat issue. One side is as guilty as the other side. And, as we all know, a politician by any other name is still a rascal. Every politician courts the middle-class, and what a blushing bride she makes. All through the election, this middle-classist politician will romance those he believes Mr. Politician, leave the middle-class alone OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

Social Security and Ponzi schemes have one common characteristic. Both are pyramids which require increasing amounts of income from contributors to keep up payments to a growing number of beneficiaries. Some of the new funds coming into a Ponzi scheme are paid to members as investment income, which they are not. The rest of the incoming funds are kept by the Ponzi founder for good living and accumulation of personal wealth. The scheme can continue only if the number of contributors at the bottom of the pyramid continues to grow. Most Social Security taxes are paid out immediately to beneficiaries. Surpluses are spent by Congress just like other tax receipts. Social Security can continue only if there are enough workers to support increasing numbers of beneficiaries or Congress pays back the money it borrowed over the past 50 years. In the early years of Social Security there were 45 workers for each recipient of benefits. Today there are only three workers for each recipient. And Congress owes the system $2.6 trillion dollars, which is a nonsense figure, because government owes the money to itself. The basic difference between the two pyramids is that a Ponzi scheme is a fraud intended to enrich the perpetrator by deceiving the investors. Social Security is a social welfare program intended to prevent widespread poverty among senior citizens, which was common for many years leading up to and during the great depression. To garner favor with voters, Washington politicians kept adding benefits to Social Security without increasing taxes disability, early retirement, and cost-of-living adjustments. Nothing dishonest was intended, just deceptive silence about where money for the additional benefits would come from. Politicians who speak ill of Social Security risk becoming unelectable by high voltage execution on the thirdrail. That would be an appropriate punishment for all the politicians who have led voters to believe that FICA taxes are premiums on health insurance and retirement annuities, which they are not and never have been. To finance the Vietnam War and pay for his Great Welfare Society, President Lyndon Johnson convinced Congress to transfer FICA income to the general treasury, where it became plain old income taxes. In return the Social Security Administration received a ledger in which to keep track of FICA funds borrowed by the Treasury. The ledger was kept in an otherwise empty file cabinet which later became known as the mythical lock box another political deception. Eventual disclosure of the empty file cabinet led Treasury to issue IOUs to Social Security, an empty public relations gesture, because Congress will have to borrow or tax to redeem the $2.6 trillion in IOUs. Why isnt Social Security a Ponzi scheme? Because Congress has the power to tax and borrow to pay back funds it spent irresponsibly over many years. Unlike a Ponzi scheme, Social Security is a popular and successful merrygo-round of do-good deceptions, for which no one will ever be sent to prison. sula; a water state built on unstable strata which has an abundance of lakes and rivers. Remember the battle between North Florida and South Georgia a while back over water rights? Companies like Marion County Utilities and other water companies are part of the Floridan Aquifer system of managing water in our state. If anyone should be paying for sinkhole insurance claims, it should be those water companies that are the primary destructors of our underground caverns. To think, with what little underground stability in Florida, to pump water into underground caverns and destabilize those caverns by then pumping the water back out is playing with fire. But as long as water companies and insurance companies are receiving their bucket of blood, thats all that counts. If and when we might receive increased property insurance bills, send them to your water company. In fact, a class action suit by Florida residents against the insurance companies and the irresponsible legislature for allowing these increases is in order. So American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) get on your horse and get going in the name of Florida residents.

avoid fines and citations; get your pet his/her rabies vaccine and license in one quick stop at the Marion County Animal Center during business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Rabies vaccines are available at the Animal Center on a walk-in basis for $10. Licenses for sterilized animals are $5 and $35 for non-sterilized animals. If you are bitten or scratched by a stray or unvaccinated animal, you can still take important steps to protect yourself by following these tips from the Marion County Health Department: Seek medical attention immediately from your healthcare provider or the Marion County Health Department. Call Animal Services at 352-671-8727 to report the bite. If you cant locate or dont know the animal that bit you, you will most likely receive a rabies vaccination as a precaution. Call the Health Departments Environmental Health Unit at 352-629-0137 for more information. Residents should also keep these other important tips in mind to help their pets avoid rabies: Do not allow your pets to run free. Follow leash laws by keeping pets and livestock secured on your property. Never feed wild or stray animals and avoid attracting them with outdoors food sources, such as uncovered trash. If your animal is attacked by a wild, stray or unvaccinated animal, do not examine your pet for injuries without wearing gloves. Wash your pet with soap and water to remove saliva from the attacking animal. Do not let your animal come into contact with other animals or people until the situation can be handled by Animal Services or the Health Department. To learn more about rabies vaccines for your pets, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/animalservices.ht m. For information on how to protect yourself after an animal bite, contact the Marion County Health Department at 352-629-0137.

Going back to my school years in northern New Jersey, I have always followed the progress of teams where I live as well as teams I have become acquainted with over the years. Lately, though, Ive begun to wonder whether some high school sports, particularly football and basketball, are getting out of hand. Last Friday, there was a doubleheader at Bradenton Manatee with the host team being in the first game and Tampa Plant in the second. The visiting teams were Don Bosco of Ramsey, N.J., listed as the nations No. 1 team, and Bergen Catholic of Oradell, N.J., which happens to be my old school. Don Bosco won the New Jersey state championship in non-public Group IV last year (New Jersey is smart enough to separate the public and private school playoffs, dont get me started on that), and Bergen Catholic only lost two games last year, both to Don Bosco. So what are these two teams doing in Florida? Theyre not alone among teams making trips. Just go through ESPN on Thursday and Friday nights (and all the related stations such as ESPNU, etc.) and youll find any number of interstate high school football games being nationally televised. Although it wasnt televised, right here in Marion County, one of our schools, Vanguard, played at Carrollton, Ga., in its opener. Most of these teams that travel raise the funds on their own and dont take from school budgets. But even so, how do you motivate kids to win a state championship when theyve already traveled all over the country. Basketball is even worse. Christmas tournaments in Florida, including one big one here in Ocala, attract teams from all over the nation. The Kingdom of the Sun event at Vanguard is a great way to spend the week after Christmas watching some of the top players in the country. Other notable tournaments in Florida are the Kreul Classic in South Florida, the Kissimmee Rotary tournament, and the City of Palms event in Fort Myers. All of these tourneys have some of the top prospects in the country and thats the key word: prospects. In basketball, its all about exposure for the players who want to advance. But that isnt the case necessarily in football. Its just teams wanting to showcase themselves and increase their national rankings. And maybe thats the problem. Maybe there shouldnt be any national rankings for high school teams. Win your state championship thats what you should aim for. National publications and networks are, in my estimation, overexposing these high school athletes. High school sports should get back to being just an extracurricular activity, without national fanfare. For the record, my old high school lost a close game Friday night, and after that they were headed to Miami to watch the Dolphins and a couple of Bergen Catholic graduates. Its a nice trip for the kids I just hope its being done for the right reasons.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

As Americans, many if not most of us can recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our national anthem. Most could probably name a few of our constitutional rights, such as the right to move freely, assemble peacefully, bear arms, express or publish ones opinion and to practice ones freedoms, to name a few. And the phrase I plead the Fifth has been used by many at one time or another. But what about the right to define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the laws of nations? Or that excises and duties must be uniform throughout the United States? Last Saturday recognized the 224th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, a document drafted by our founding forefathers in Philadelphia creating a Republic that respects the sovereignty of the states and limits the national government by specific grants of power, separation of powers and a system of checks and balances. The Constitution, which starts with We the People, is significant not only as a founding charter of the United States, and as a bulwark of freedom, but also in that the underlying assumptions are different from what preceded it the Magna Carta. In it, the barons went to the king and demanded that he grant them rights. In the Constitution, the assumption is that the people already have those rights. These very important words that are the frame of our Constitution are what our great nation is based upon. Here are a few additional facts about the Constitution: Did you know? There are seven articles followed by 27 amendments. The first 10 amendments are known as the Bill of Rights. Only 12 of the 13 original states actually took part in writing the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island did not attend the Constitutional Convention, though it eventually was the last state to ratify the document in 1790. Chief draftsmen of the U.S. Constitution were James Madison and Gouverneur Morris. To ratify an amendment, three-fourths of the state legislatures approve it and three-fourths of ratifying conventions in states approve it. Lets make sure we are thankful for our freedoms, our liberties and our pursuit of happiness. And, yes, changes have been made over the years to the document. And, yes, it is not perfect. But it is the beacon for us as a nation and sets us apart from the rest of the world.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Lets honor our humble beginnings High school sports out of control? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Corporations as peopleWhile I was attending Community College in California long ago years, I lived and worked near a famous tourist attraction, The Winchester Mystery House. Remember the Winchester rifle? The mysteries surrounding this house were the many construction and decorating oddities. For example, there were screen doors on indoor doorways, gold door knobs and stairs that led to the upper corner of a room leading nowhere. Many others, but that is not the point. There were many stories circulating about why the odd features were there. Some said that Mrs. Winchester was trying to keep the spirit of her husband around and that as long as she was having work done on the house his spirit would remain. My favorite was that, being in the great depression, she had many of the local journeymen working on the house to keep them working and supporting their families. Nice story. But what I am leading up to is, since the Supreme Court of the United States has, in its great wisdom, declared that corporations are people, wouldnt it be nice if they would act like people. They do, of course, when it is convenient or beneficial to them, such as contributions to political candidates who might and usually do support legislation that is good for the companys bottom line. Right now, all those big companies are holding on to cash. I might ask, why? What will they use it for? More political contributions? And what is money anyway? It is only paper and, more commonly, just a number on a ledger sheet. They sure arent using it to help our struggling economy. They lay off people to save money when they should be hiring back all those employees they have let go. More people working, more money to be spent, more need for goods and services and back to the need for more jobs and more workers. I have heard excuses, such as, we are uncertain about our taxes and benefit packages (i.e. medical coverage expenses). All future is uncertain. But unless we take some action, whether it appears to be the best choice at the moment or not, our future will become even more uncertain. If corporations insist on being treated as people they should act like it. They cant have it both ways. Take a lesson from Mrs. Winchester and do something to help. J ames M errick O calaSend sinkhole bills to water companiesI recently read an article where Citizens Property Insurance Company wants as much as a 400% increase in property insurance to cover sinkhole claims. Now, apparently, we have an effective insurance lobby in Tallahassee or a preponderance of legislators with ties to the insurance industry. In my corporate climbing days, I lived in 12 states and not one of them had a sinkhole problem, except Florida. The Floridan Aquifer Company tried, in 1997, to get its fingers into Savannah, Georgia. But, through the efforts of the city and county commission, a state senator and the executive director of a conservation association (me), we kept them out. Their plan was to pump water out of the South Branch of the Savannah River into underground caverns, (called aquifers) and then pump the water back out and sell it to the residents of the area. Remember, Aquifers are nothing more than underground caverns. At that time practically no one was acquainted with aquifers. Engineers from both sides didnt consider what would happen when water was pumped into these caverns under pressure and then pumped back out under pressure. The space the water had occupied would easily collapse. The by-product would be sinkholes. The person who questioned this was me, again, as all this pumping would weaken the underground caverns and rock strata. The issue was soundly defeated by those Georgia legislative parties. Of course Florida could have reapplied and with new people making up the commissions, who knows where it now stands.

without jobs increased by 104 to 6,999 because, at the same time, its labor force grew by 790 to 59,428 and the number of employed rose by 686 to 52,429. Levy Countys unemployment rate dropped from 11.6 to 11.3 percent over the month. While its labor force decreased by 79 to 17,352 and the number of employed was virtually unchanged at 15,396, down 16, those without jobs fell by 63 to 1,956. Marion Countys unemployment rate fell onetenth of one percent to 12.7 percent. The countys labor force expanded by 89 to 133,855 actually 516 more than in June 2011 the number of those employed rose by 147 to 116,836 569 more than at the beginning of the summer while those without jobs fell by 58 to 17,019. Compared to August 2010, Marion Countys unemployment rate is down from 14 percent, Citrus County is down from 13.1 percent and Levy County is down from 12.5 percent. Becky Rust, AWIs chief economist, said that the May-August period is the lowest unemployment in Florida since August 2009. The states unemployment rate remained virtually unchanged month-to-month, at 10.9 percent, down from 12.1 percent a year ago. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 10.7 percent. The national rate remained unchanged at 9.1 percent. Rust said that since July, 18 of Floridas 67 counties experienced an increase in unemployment rates, 10 held steady and 39 posted declines. She added that over the year, only six counties saw an increase while 61 counties unemployment rates dropped. Comparing year-to-year rates, Rust said, shows the improved economy while monthly unemployment rates may have sharp fluctuations due to seasonal events that follow a somewhat regular pattern each year such as tourism, agricultural harvest, holidays and the opening and closing of schools. For the fifth consecutive month, the Ocala Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) held its ranking of fourth highest unemployment rate among the states 23 MSAs down from second in March and third in April behind Palm Coasts 14.9 percent, Sebastian-Vero Beach at 13.9 percent and Port St. Lucie at 12.8 percent. Among Floridas 67 counties, Marion Countys unemployment ranking dropped a notch to eighth highest, while Citrus Countys ranking dropped from 18th to 19th and Levy County fell two places to 23. Rust described job growth as flat and fragile adding that struggles with the manufacturing industry and housing continues to be the main drag on the national and state economy. Total nonagricultural employment for the Ocala MSA was 90,200, up 1,600 jobs since July and down 100 jobs over the year. Year-to-year gains were reported in professional and businesses services, at 7,600 up 100 since August 2010; and education and health services, at 13,800 up 400 jobs over the year. Four industries in the Ocala MSA showed no change over the month: wholesale trade, financial activities, leisure and hospitality, and other employment. Five industries posted job losses: mining, logging and construction; manufacturing; transportation, warehousing and utilities; information services; and government. Local government, at 14,100 is down 200 jobs over the year but up 1,700 since July. Workforce Connection serves career seekers by planning and coordinating training, education and placement opportunities and also provides business development services such as on-the-job training, paid internships and other financial incentives. Last year, more than 36,000 career seekers and 1,600 businesses received services. The local, business-led nonprofit organization works with economic development partners throughout the threecounty region to bring new employers to the area as well as to provide services and hiring and training incentives that help new and existing businesses, large and small.

Interfaith service for 9-11 brought enlightenment A 9-11 memorial sponsored by The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County brought together a spectrum of faith and non-faith traditions as laity, youth and religious leaders to pay tribute. The event of hope and healing, compassion and universal brotherhood was held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ. Hindus, Jews, Christians. Muslims, Buddhists, Bahai, humanists and others listened to readings from the tenets of their faiths with 10year-old Veda Lakshmi Narayan reading both in Sanskrit and English. Other participants were Imam Zafer Sabawi, Islamic Center of Ocala; Rabbi Zeev Harari, Temple Beth Shalom ; Rev. Peggy Hostetler, Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living; Rev. Jim Bullock, retired pastor, Ft. King Presbyterian Church; Rev. Victor Valentine, assistant pastor, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist; and the host pastor and music director, Dr. Hal McSwain. Joann Bennett of the BahaI tradition, also read as did Kay Marks of First Christian Church, Disciples of Christ; Jim McIntosh, president of the Unitarian Universalist fellowship in Summerfield; Brother Munawwar Qadri of the Islamic Center; Dae Bi (Larry) Ford of the White Lotus Dharma Center ; Barbara Fitos, executive director of The Community Fund; and Ervin Bullock a Presbyterian, who read a Jain prayer for peace. Homilist Dr. Scott Olsen, professor of philosophy and religion at the College of Central Florida called upon all to consider that both the golden and silver rules universal variants of do unto others as you would have them do to you is found in all ethical traditions. Soloists included Dale Berman Garfinkel and Megan Thompson Ms. Thompson also sang with Katherine Barber, Pamela Michele and Beth McCall who comprise the Central Florida Master Choir Womens Ensemble. As the service concluded those attending left the sanctuary singing euphorically let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me as they moved to the fellowship hall where host congregants warmly welcomed them to good food and an expanding circle of friendship. The Interfaith Alliance is grateful to all who participated in an exhilarating evening of enlightenment, tolerance and good will which reflected the basic goodness of most human beings. The Alliance will continue to work locally to transform this small part of a torn and broken world with love, justice and respect for the inherent dignity and worth of each and every human being.

A Baby Shower! Certainly, everyone knows that OTOW is a 55and-older community. So, the mere mention of a baby shower brings quizzical looks. Some folks, on hearing about the shower, smirked and said, Whats the punch line? Well, the Pickleball Club can attest to the fact that one of its members is certainly expecting a baby. Kim Makay, at this writing, is about three weeks from delivering a son to be named Crosby. Kim continues to play pickleball regularly and the club members watch in awe as she navigates the court and still is a formidable threat behind the paddle. Crosbys soon-to-be-Dad, Tom Butler, had to rent out the house in OTOW and move the family to a development that allows children. On Wednesday, Sept. 14, the pickleball club members held a baby shower/picnic in the OTOW picnic pavilion. Approximately 30 attended ball players, spouses, and friends. Kim and Tom received gift certificates, toys, layette items, and the BIG present a musical lighted crib mobile decorated with miniature pickleball paddles. One of the pickleball players, Rick Vogel, created the mobile decorations and also crafted a plaque dedicated to Crosby that was engraved Crosby Born to Play. The plaque held a tiny pickleball paddle and some baby-sized pickleballs. A lot of good food was eaten, some funny games were played, lots of conversations were held, and a good time was had by all. So, if you hear about a baby shower in OTOW, you can assure everyone that it was, in fact, true. PHOTOGRAPH BY RICK VOGELMother-tobe Kim Makay receives a crib mobile that was especially designed to highlight her interest in pickleball. The mobile has miniature pickleball paddles and babysized pickleballs. REMODELING 000967L Visit Our Website coveconstructioninc.us COVE CONSTRUCTION, INC. COVE CONSTRUCTION, INC.

Abig thanks to one and all who called about Kitty the rescue cat featured in last months column. Because of your generosity of spirit when it comes to pets in need, Kitty has found his forever home and is now another success story. For those of you who would like to add a kitten or adult cat to your household, please know that the animal shelters and cat rescue groups in our area are overflowing with cats and kittens of all breeds, sizes, temperaments, colors and ages so there is that perfect feline that is waiting just for you. You can call or visit the Marion County Animal Center (352-671-8700), the Humane Society of Marion County (352-873-7387), Sheltering Hands Cat Rescue (352-817-0663) and Feisty Acres Cat Sanctuary (352-861-4312) and they will pair you up with a kitty companion. You can also visit our local Pet Smart and Petco on S.R. 200 where you can meet some of the kitties up for adoption through these groups. Every time a cat is adopted, it makes room for another not so lucky animal to come into rescue. So please help if you can. Our first Animal Center dog of the month is Baby Boy Blue, but you can just call him Blue for short. Blue is a four year old Catahoula/hound mix that was brought to the Animal Center in May with either a gunshot wound or wound from an arrow. The wonderful folks at the Animal Center have nursed him back to health and hes now ready to be adopted. After all hes been through, hes described as a playful, happy dog. You can chase his blues away by calling the Animal Center today at (352) 671-8700 and maybe you can change his name from Blue to Lucky. Stan, a six year old male Papillion, was rescued from a home with fourteen other Papillions after his owner passed away in a hospital. Stan and a few others are all that is left of this group that need their forever homes. Stan is a little guy just ten pounds so he can easily fit in a corner of your chair but hed rather be a fixture on your lap. This affectionate boy is very playful and happy, full of energy, but prefers to cuddle more than anything. After you romp and play in the morning, hell be ready for an afternoon nap with you in your recliner. How great is that? Then when you wake up you can cuddle some more and marvel at those ears and say Stan is the man. Blues ID number is A047561 and Stans is A054031. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th Street. The Center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. Allergic to Dogs? Are you one of many individuals who would love to share life with a dog, but think you are allergic to dogs? What you are allergic to is the dander produced when double coated breeds shed their coats. Although no breed of dog is totally dander-free, dogs with single layer coats produce significantly less dander than their double coated brethren. You can check out the following breeds and their mixes at shelter or welfare groups to see if you can tolerate the small amount of dander they produce. If you can, you can then adopt one into your loving home and live happily ever after. So check out these breeds before you say to yourself I can never have a dog: Basenji, Bedlington Terrier, Bichon Frise, Chinese Crested, Italian Greyhound, Irish Water Spaniel, Kerry Blue Terrier, Maltese, Poodle, Portuguese Water Dog, Schnauzer all sizes (Giant, Standard, and Miniature), Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and the Xoloitzcuintli, also known as the Mexican Hairless. SPCA News The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Our first meeting of the new season will be Thursday, September 15th. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for that date and come out and join us as we start our new year. Were lining up guest speakers of interest to all animal lovers. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B SW 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at (352) 3620985 to find out more. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

Though the word probably invokes images of raccoons and bats foaming at the mouth, your sweet kitty, friendly dog, calm horse or even you can contract the disease if bitten by a rabid animal. Rabies is caused by a virus thats spread through exposure to a rabid animals saliva or nervous tissue and is nearly always fatal if not immediately treated.

Niblock, county administrator, praised the efforts to consolidate 9-1-1 communications as he spoke to the State Road 200 Coalition recently. I hope you would applaud the effort, he said. Combined it will save $1.3 million a year. The plan calls for all emergency agencies to fall under one communications plan, meaning that people who call 9-1-1 would have to be transferred elsewhere before their need could be addressed. Only the Ocala Police Department has failed to get on board. Were still looking for the potential of the police department. Niblock said this was the fourth year of the county commissioners living within their means with the budget. However, he told people to let me know if youve had a loss of services. He noted, Its hard to grow the economy on a one-legged stool. He also pointed out that the county has no control over other agencies millage. County tax bills also include the School Board, water management districts and other agencies. He said the county continues to look at continued organizational change. He said there are 184 positions fewer in the county than when he became county administrator. He spoke about the countys efforts to help create jobs. The private sector is where jobs are created. He added, I just wish the jobs were there yesterday. He also addressed the controversial issue of Munroe Regional Medical Center. There is a very limited role that the county plays in the governance of MRMC. He praised the hospital for its cardiac center, and noted, If youre going to bring 250 jobs, you want a quality of life. He noted that the schools needed to provide good education, not less going to a four-day format. He complimented all the volunteers in the hospital, saying they would die on the vine if not for our volunteer services. 28~ Friday, September 23, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Administrator praises consolidation PHOTO BY JIM CLARKDr. Lee Niblock speaks to the Coalition. Kids expo Triston Workman, 8, who lives on State Road 200 near Bahia Oaks, took part in the Masonic ID program at the All About Kids Expo at the Paddock Mall Saturday, sponsored mainly by the Lions Clubs. Triston is speaking into a microphone which will eventually end up recording his voice on a CD. Also on the CD will be pictures of him and his fingerprints, which will be given to his parents, so in the event that information is needed it is readily available. Also at the event, Bubbles the Clown, a ventriloquist, and his sidekick Skip ent ertained the folks there. Jobless rate shows small decline in Marion Workforce Connections three-county region continues to reflect the uneven nature of the economic recovery, with modest gains in the number of those with jobs as well as decrease in unemployment over the year, but nearly 2,000 fewer people in the local labor force since August 2010, according to data released today by the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation. The August unemployment rate in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties was 12.3 percent, down one-tenth of a percentage point since July and 1.4 percent over the year. Out of a regional labor force of 210,635 there were 25,974 out of work compared with 29,063 unemployed in August 2010. Rusty Skinner, Workforces chief executive officer, noted that growth in employment and labor force numbers offer a positive for August. However, Skinner noted that while these reflect an improved unemployment rate from one year ago, it continues to be the result of withdrawal from the labor force rather than a sustained improvement in employment growth in Marion and Levy Counties. Citrus County shows growth in both labor force and employment showing some signs of improvement in workforce over the year.
