That was the comment from State Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, early in Tuesdays legislative delegation meeting at the College of Central Florida. A finishing comment by Ocala Mayor Randy Ewers, who is not up for re-election on Oct. 18, started the discussion of redistricting of the Legislature, and that led to Hays short response. Ewers said he supported compact redistricting, where Marion County would not be carved among so many legislators. Nine were on the dais Tuesday. However, Hays pointed out that right now there are four senators up here. If you cut that in half, youll have only two senators advocating for Marion County. State Rep. Dennis Baxley, ROcala and chairman of the delegation, asked, Is more better or is closer to home better? Baxley, who was term-limited out a few years ago but successfully ran again last year, added, There are a lot of pieces to balance in what looks like a simple idea. State Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Citrus County, also spoke on the issue. Weve heard the call, Give us a senator, a bigger piece of the pie. I feel theres going to be a big change in Marion County, a change for the better. Dean, who covers much of Southwest Marion County and has parts of 13 counties in his district, said the redistricting battle will come to a head next year. It will blot out the sun during the next session. Ewers spoke during the governmental part of the meeting, and also brought up economic issues and the situation with water. He asked for development of clean water standards that are scientifically based. He also asked for regulation of Internet cafes. County Commission Chair Stan McClain also spoke on economic issues and jobs, and asked for relief on bonding requirements. He also pointed out that Marion County sends $44 million to the water districts, and receives only $9 million back in local projects. Tax Collector George Albright asked legislators not to repeal the Real ID law. Its a really bad idea, he said, because it requires ID to get things like a drivers license. No tickee, no laundry, was his analysis. School Board member Jackie Porter asked for no new mandates from state officials. With fellow board member Angie Boynton looking on, Porter spoke of how funding has declined for programs such as band, music and FFA. She asked the delegation to carefully review any K-12 legislation that comes across their desks.

In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 20 board meeting, Marion County commissioners adopted a new fee schedule for the countys Building Department, reducing fees for 83 different types of permits. The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1 and affect projects taking place in unincorporated Marion County. The commission is enacting the change after a cost-analysis review to analyze the base amount of funds needed to operate the Building Department. The review results indicated permit fees could be decreased without affecting the departments operational budget. The departments budget is funded through revenues generated from permit fees. Homeowners and contractors will see reductions of more than $95 in some permit types through the new fee schedule. For example, permits for above-ground pools have decreased from $159 to $63, air conditioning unit changeouts have decreased from $87 to $73, and re-roofs for single family or duplex residences have decreased from $159 to $123 and to one fee of $246 for a three to six multi-family unit homes as opposed to $159 per unit. The Building Department adjusted the fees by calculating the costs associated with issuing each type of permit. At a time when the economy is at an all-time low, the County Commission and Marion County Building Department have made a tangible effort to assist citizens and business owners by lowering fees and implementing this new fee schedule, said Stan McClain. County cuts permit fees House gets painted; jewelry, pills taken A local man working for a painting company was arrested and accused of grand theft after he allegedly took jewelry and drugs from a home in which he was painting. Cody V. Hall, 26, who lived in a motel on South Pine, was hired by a couple in Oak Run to paint the interior of the house. He was in the house on Tuesday, Sept. 13, through Friday, Sept. 16. The owner of the paint company said he had been contacted by his foreman who said that Hall placed a plastic container in the foreman's truck. Hall asked the foreman to drive him to a local market, where he converted the coins into cash, about $105 worth. PLEASESEETAKEN PAGE2 How meaningful is food expiration dating?

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com The owner checked with the homeowner and asked the woman whether she had a plastic container, and she said that she went into the bedroom and discovered it was missing. The victim provided deputies with a description of the jewelry that was in the container, which was valued at more than $5,700. Later, she discovered that there was a prescription bottle of Oxycodone in the bedroom. The bottle was still there, but 47 pills were missing. Det. Ed Mobley traced Hall to the motel and recovered the plastic container containing several items. However, some of the jewelry was missing. Mobley then checked pawn shops for Hall's roommate, Justin Newsome, 24, and discovered he had allegedly pawned several items of jewelry. Newsome was arrested on Sept. 26 and charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property, one count of engaging in a pawnbroker business without a license and one count of violation of a pawnbroker transaction.The victim responded to both pawn shops and paid $1,525 to get her jewelry back. In other reports, two drivers were accused of DUI. Christopher Calvin Latner, 26, of Rainbow Lakes, was stopped for no seat belt. After the field sobriety test, his breath was tested at .017 and .0188. Joseph D. Smith, 25, of Southwest 39th Avenue, was stopped for unauthorized use of a vehicle. He was charged with DUI and driving while license suspended. TAKENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SUMMERFIELD The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force located and arrested fugitive Charles Eugene Grubbs, 47, of Summerfield, Monday in southeast Marion County. Grubbs was wanted in Marion County on an outstanding arrest warrant for sexual battery on a person under 12 years of age. An investigation by the Marion County Sheriffs Office revealed Grubbs allegedly sexually battered a female child on June 23 while a family member of Grubbs was babysitting the child. The child later told her mother of the incident, prompting the childs mother to notify law enforcement. Through investigation, detectives identified Grubbs as the suspect. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on Aug. 29. The case was submitted to the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force by Task Force members at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. The subsequent fugitive investigation revealed Grubbs, after the sexual battery, had fled from Florida. Task Force members tracked Grubbs to Alabama, Georgia, and eventually back to Marion County where Grubbs was located hiding in an abandoned trailer located on the 14900 block of Southeast 95th Avenue in Summerfield. Task Force members developed information that Grubbs was possibly staying in the abandoned trailer and immediately initiated surveillance. At approximately 2:45 p.m., Task Force members including investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, and the Gainesville Police Department surrounded the trailer and ordered Grubbs to come out at gunpoint. Grubbs initially failed to comply but eventually surrendered to Task Force members without incident. Grubbs was arrested on the outstanding warrant, transported to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, and later booked into the Marion County Jail. Todays arrest was due to the combined efforts of several law enforcement agencies in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll. Despite originally fleeing the state, Grubbs has been caught and will face the charges in Marion County.

Thanks to the planwhich relies on surveillance by environmental groups as well as routine and special clean-up sweeps by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the implementation of a communications network to facilitate the reporting of incidents and quick responsesbeach closures declined from more than 70 miles in 1988 to less than four miles in 1989, with closures remaining at similarly low levels ever since. Of course, medical waste is hardly the only problem facing Americas beaches and coastal waters. According to the non-profit Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the country in 2010 alone. NRDC reports on water quality at U.S. beaches every year in its series of Testing the Waters reports. Pressure from the group has helped spur the EPA to agree to overhaul Clean Water Act regulations pertaining to urban and suburban storm water runoff and update decades-old beach water quality standards by 2012. These improvements should help to keep beaches from the Jersey Shore to the Great Lakes to California, and points in between, clear of debris and safe for swimmers and sunbathers of every stripe.

Dear EarthTalk: What is nonpoint source pollution? How much of a problem is it and how can it be controlled? Devon Corey, New York, NY Unlike pollution that comes from specific industrial factories, sewage treatment plants and other easily discernible points, nonpoint source pollution comes from many diffuse sources, but in the aggregate creates a formidable challenge for municipal, state and federal environmental and water control authorities. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nonpoint source pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground (where it...) picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters and ground waters. Some of the most common pollutants in nonpoint source pollution include excess fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides from agricultural lands and residential areas and oil, grease and toxic chemicals from urban runoff and energy production. Sediment from construction, mining and agricultural sites as well as salts, acids, bacteria and atmospheric deposition from myriad sources also play a role. While its effects vary region to region, nonpoint source pollution is likely the largest threat to our water quality. The U.S. has made tremendous advances in the past 25 years to clean up the aquatic environment by controlling pollution from industries and sewage treatment plants, says the EPA. Unfortunately, we did not do enough to control pollution from diffuse, or nonpoint, sources. The EPA also calls nonpoint source pollution the U.S.s largest source of water quality problems and the main reason 40 percent of our rivers, lakes, and estuaries are not clean enough to meet basic uses such as fishing or swimming. Because it comes from so many sources, regulating nonpoint source pollution is almost impossible, so it really comes down to individuals taking steps to minimize the pollution generated by their actions. The EPA reports that we can all do our part by: keeping litter, pet waste, leaves and debris out of street gutters and storm drains, which usually drain right into nearby water bodies; applying lawn and garden chemicals sparingly; disposing of used oil, antifreeze, paints and other household chemicals properly, that is, at your nearest hazardous household waste drop-off, not in storm drains; cleaning up spilled brake fluid, oil, grease and antifreeze, not hosing them into the street where they will eventually reach local waterways; and controlling soil erosion on your property by planting ground cover and stabilizing erosion-prone areas. Beyond what we can do individually, local, regional and state governments can also help reduce nonpoint source pollution by enacting and enforcing building codes and other rules that can reduce outflows. The voluntary reduction in phosphates in dishwashing detergents in the U.S. last year, for example, was a big step in reducing the nutrient load into our streams and lakes. Some municipalities have gone so far as to mandate erosion and sediment control ordinances requiring the construction of natural buffers in building and landscaping projects to filter out pollutants before they reach local watersheds. If your community doesnt have similar rules in place, encourage your local officials to enact them. CONTACT: EPAs Nonpoint Source Pollution Page, www.epa.gov/owow_keep/ NPS.

Rabies. 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. Worldwide, more than 55,000 people die from rabies every year, according to the World Health Organization. World Rabies Day is Sept. 28, and Marion County Animal Services and the Marion County Health Department want to help you protect your pets, yourself and others. Under Florida law, any pet more than three months old must receive a rabies vaccine and county license. Marion County Animal Services makes it easy to comply with the law and 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.

These generic phrases are included on most food packages, along with varying forms of numerical date stamps. But what do they actually mean? How good is best and how bad is it after its not best anymore? If food product dating lingo like this has made you nearly lose your appetite, read on for an explanation that will hopefully clear this culinary conundrum. Although a dating system exists, its neither standardized nor required by federal regulations. Only infant formula and baby food are federally required to include a use-by date based on nutrient and texture quality and should not be bought or used past that date. States regulate food product dating for all other foods, using either code dating or calendar dating. Code dating is usually found on shelf-stable products such as cans, jars and boxes. These codes represent date and time of manufacture and are used to direct product rotation as well as to facilitate location and collection in a food recall. These dates do not imply the food safety. Calendar dating is found mainly on perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products. Calendar dates (sell-by, best if used by/before and use-by dates) identify the time range of peak quality, but not safety. You may be surprised to learn that though these dates give an idea for general shelf-life and optimum quality, they dont indicate concrete time periods for safety. Much of food safety involves the proper handling and storage of food. With the exception of baby formula and food, food that is expired or past the dates printed on the packages may still be safe to consume for a time. More importantly, food that hasnt expired may be unsafe if it hasnt been stored properly. Remember the importance of time and temperature; perishable food requires temperature control within certain time guidelines to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that can cause foodborne illness. Consider food product dates as useful guidelines for perishable food. But dont forget to take these easy but crucial steps to ensure your food remains safe to eat. Buy food before the expiration date. Promptly refrigerate perishable foods at 40 degrees or below. Ensure food does not stay at room temperature for more than two hours. Freeze perishable foods that will not be used before the expiration date. Frozen foods with expired dates are safe indefinitely as long as the product remains continuously frozen. Adhere to manufacturers instructions on products. Q uestions? Contact Nancy Gal, Extension Agent IV with UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, at nancy.gal@marioncountyfl.org or 352-671-8400.

Is it still today? Walter Maliszewski, Camden, NJ Medical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Officials scrambled for months to figure out where the waste was coming from, and eventually zeroed in on New York Citys Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island. Sub-optimal systems there were not successfully containing medical waste and other garbage on site, and New Jersey beaches and vacationers and business ownerswere paying the price. Although no one was injured or exposed to disease by the washed up waste, the public was especially alarmed given the HIV/AIDS crisis gripping the nation at that time. New York City was required to pay $1 million for past pollution damages and had to shoulder the cost of clean-up at Jersey Shore beaches as well. The resulting loss of tourism cost business owners throughout the affected region as much as 40 percent of their revenue, with total losses estimated at well over $1 billion. Some New Jersey business owners remain upset that New York wasnt forced to pay them reparations for lost revenue as well. In the wake of the scare, Congress enacted the Medical Waste Tracking Act in 1988, requiring the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a program to better track medical waste from cradleto-grave so that it didnt end up fouling beaches or any other environments. While the program was not renewed when it expired in 1991, it served as a model for how states and municipalities could better track potentially dangerous medical waste while also helping medical facilities institute systems and processes for making sure they knew where their waste was going and that it would be disposed of responsibly. Meanwhile, New York and New Jersey have coordinated on setting up and maintaining their own systems to stem the so-called syringe tides. The cornerstone is a multi-agency Medical waste washing up on beaches E ARTH TALK PHOTO COURTESY ISTOCKMedical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Although that problem was addressed for the most part, bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the U.S. last year.

On Sept. 15, we had our Fall Opening Scramble followed by a general meeting and lunch. The team of B.J. Lassiter, Charlotte Green and Julie Jackson won after a scorecard playoff due to a tie. The second place team was Elsa Berbig, Sally Crass and Joyce Madill. The team of Phyllis Oldfield, Rae Stover and Cindy Kocher were third. Tee to Green was the game played on Sept. 22, since the greens had just been aerated. Elsa Berbig won, with Phyllis Oldfield second and Salita Timmermeyer third. This was the first week for the Closest to the Pin contest, which was voted on at the general meeting the week prior. The 16th hole was the contest hole, and B.J. Lassiter was the winner. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on the 23rd of September was a real challenge to the participants. Instead of playing three best net, all four scores were counted. No taking a bad hole off! The threesomes had a blind for the fourth score. On top of that, the greens were aerated during the week, and were slow and inconsistent. However, this only added to the fun of the match. The winners, with a score of 266 were Ron Tennant, Don Aubrey and John Foutty. Second with a 278 were Bob Gray, Ron Topp, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Third with a 281 were Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, Charlie Elder and John Cerlenko. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Sam Sample, Tom Ducz, Don Aubrey, and Paul Colatruglio. The day was hot and muggy, due to the good rains we have been receiving. This will help the greens, as well as fill our aquifer. Who says fall is here?

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 U.S. high school students and their teachers are invited to participate in the Bill of Rights Institutes sixth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution, said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. This context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government. Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty? The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (First Place), $500 (Second Place), and $250 (Third Place). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education, said Ross. Over 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. Complete contest details can be found below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cosmic changes create a potential for disruptions in your travel plans. In the meantime, you might want to consider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counter-productive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Venus offers encouragement to romance-seeking Virgos who are ready to get up, get out and meet more people, one of whom could be that long-sought soul mate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An ongoing problem with a coworker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decision-making this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown! Six more points! Thats what the youthful cheerleaders were yelling at the flag football game on Saturday, Sept.17 at Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field. This is the third year for the Upward Flag Football and Cheerleading sport at Joy. 160 people turned out to participate and watch this exciting event. This year the cheerleading sport was favored as there were 32 cheerleaders and 28 players grades K4 through 6th grade. Even though it was a hot, humid, buggy morning, the coaches and the four teams were ready to go on the field. Teams included the Jets and Giants, for the younger players, and the Texans and Cowboys for the older players. Pastor Ed Holloway, organizer of the program, began the day with a prayer and some comments. He remarked that the communication system and the scoreboard would not be a problem, since they did not have any. He told the players not to worry as their scores did not go on any league records anywhere. One small player answered with good. He encouraged them to listen to their coaches, have some fun while supporting the efforts of their teammates. Most of the participating families reside in and around the Ocala area. Most had heard about the program from their friends. Some said that they liked the Upward program at Joy because it is well-organized and all the kids had their uniforms before the games started. One parent said this is a good opportunity for his child to learn, interact with other kids and get some exercise. When the kids were asked what they hope to get out of this experience, Austin said Have fun, and Christian said, Make a touchdown! So if you want to see some enthusiastic young people enjoy the game of flag football and cheering the teams on, come on out to Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field every Saturday at 10 a.m. The program continues through Nov. 12. Joy Lutheran Church is located at 7045 S.W. 83rd Place on S.R. 200 in Ocala. For more information contact 854-4509. Youngsters at Joy Lutheran are ready for some football PHOTOS BY NORM HALVORSENOn the way to a touchdown. The Joy Flag Football Cheerleaders shaking their pompoms and shouting for a touchdown.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Y esterday was National Coffee Day. I was out celebrating the whole day drinking coffee at restaurants and coffee shops while keeping my ears cocked to find material for todays Pun Alley. When I finally came home really wide-awake my wife asked if I would be able sleep after so much coffee. I said, Its no problem; Ive done this before. I count until three and then I sleep. And that works? she asked. No, sometimes, I count until half past three. Divorce liquidityAfter suffering through years of his wifes awful coffee, a man spit it out and took the coffee maker to his lawyer. Dropping it on the attorneys desk, the man growled, Here they are! Here are what? the startled lawyer asked. The man replied, Grounds for divorce. Lit up John stayed up half the night studying for his English Literature exam. He drank coffee almost constantly while attempting to read The Canterbury Tales. Early morning his dad woke up and found John studying, and asked, What have you got there? He answered, Just my cup and Chaucer. Getting ahead A friend was having lunch with his nine-yearold son when the waitress came by to ask if they wanted a drink. Ill have a decapitated coffee, the son said in all seriousness. The waitress smiled and poured him a cup. Not to be outdone, she later returned with the coffeepot and asked, Can I put a head on that for you? Trying timesAt a social reception, a lawyer said to a judge, I see that you are drinking coffee. Why dont you try something more stimulating? Have you ever tried bourbon? No, replied the judge, but I have tried several who have. Coffee breaksShow me an administrative assistant who cant make coffee, and Ill show you an employee with grounds for dismissal. Birds meet for coffee in a nest cafe.

Yes, thank you, said the man. Due to a steady diet of fruit.Black resultsEven though Clifford was extremely awkward he was very sociable and was always invited to high-society parties. At one such party he spilled his entire cup of black coffee over his hostess evening dress that she had just bought in Paris for a lot of money.

Pointed commentA husband was throwing knives at his wifes photo while she was out of town. But none of the knives were hitting the photo. When the wife called up she asked, Honey, what are you doing? Her husband replied. Im missing you. OrderA man walked into a coffee shop, and was given a huge mug that he took to his table. When he tried to drink it, he found that instead of coffee, the mug contained a pair of beige cotton trousers. So he went to the shop manager to complain.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com E very White House administration likes to have its First Lady dedicated to a significant domestic cause. Mrs. Obama began gradually in 2009 by turning over some expensive grass and planting a victory garden in the White House back yard. At the time it was unclear whether her cause would be nutrition or farming. A concern arose when it was discovered that the first crop from Obama Acres might not be wholesome. In support of environmental awareness, former residents Bill and Hilary Clinton had White House sewage sludge spread as fertilizer on the White House lawn. After careful investigation, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the White House sod a fit-to-grow-food seal of approval. The success of the first year crop motivated Mrs. O to expand the White House garden to 1500 square feet in 2010. Its a big back yard. In March of this year Mrs. O and willing workers from local grammar schools planted a third garden of cabbage, collards, cauliflower, Swiss chard, beets, and other yummy and yukky veggies. The president does not like beets. Washington believes Americans respond best to domestic challenges which are treated with the same seriousness as military conflicts for example the war on poverty and the war on drugs. Mrs. Os challenge is a war on obesity, which she calls a threat to national security. Like all causes, the war on obesity is generating positive and negative comment. A TV personality on the Food Network has suggested making the war on obesity a global human rights issue, just as important as climate change. As a human rights problem obesity can be viewed as a result of deprivation and oppression, in need of significant government intervention and assistance. On the other hand two research fellows at the Democracy Institute authored a put-down titled Diet Nation: Exposing the Obesity Crusade. They call it a manufactured epidemic. An early achievement of the war on obesity has been motivating FDA to finish a project it began in 2003 to redesign the boxes, cans, cartons, and labels for every food product. After eight years, FDA credits its sudden inspiration and production to major advances in nutrition regulations by the Obama administration. The next inspired accomplishment of FDA is menu labeling regulations for restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee chains, and vending machines. We doubt there is anyone with access to news and information who hasnt heard that the primary cause of overweight is more calories consumed than calories burned in other words bad eating habits and lack of physical activity. We who are skeptical about new government initiatives have to wonder whether the White House garden was a planned prelude to the declaration of war on obesity an expansion of the granny state. We wonder how long will it be until the White House asks Congress to create an FDA obesity bureau to manage the war on fat. Maybe the funding can be raised by erecting a vegetable stand on Pennsylvania Avenue. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 L ast week, while on vacation, I had given thought to going to my high schools 50th class reunion for the Class of 1961. Where most schools have the ceremony in the fall of what would have been your senior year, Bergen Catholic does it three months after the 50th anniversary of the actual graduation day in June 1961. I dont travel as well as I used to, so I dutifully filled out the questionnaire but didnt make the trip. In going over those 50 years, it made me think of things that have come into our language in all that time. If you had mentioned some of these words back in 1961, and if youre someone who remembers picking up the phone and hearing Number, please, then here are the responses you would have gotten: Whats a microwave oven? Whats a personal computer? Whats a hard drive? What is software? What is the Internet? What does online mean? What is cyberspace? Whats a webcam? Whats a blog? What is cable television? What is satellite television? You mean all programs will be telecast in color some day? Whats a VCR? Whats a DVR? What is Tivo? Whats a remote control for the TV? What does The Eagle has landed mean? Who is Neil Armstrong? Where is Vietnam? What are the Twin Towers? Who is Osama bin Laden? Whats a Chunnel? Actor Ronald Reagan was elected as what? Who is Jimmy Carter? Who is George Bush? Whats a touch tone phone? Why do I call 911 when things go wrong? You have to pay how much to mail a letter? Whats a ZIP code? Whats a shopping mall? Whats a debit card? What is direct deposit? Marion Countys population is what? Whats a gated community? You have to pay how much for a gallon of gas? You have to pump your own gas? Why wont your doctor come to your house when youre sick? Whats an MRI? What is CPR? Who are the Rays and Marlins? You mean they play hockey in Florida? You mean someone will break Roger Maris home run record? What do steroids have to do with playing baseball? Whats a wild card race in sports? And finally, a question Im still not sure how to answer: Whats a tweet?

J ust when you thought it was safe to go into the water, here come the jaws of Congress to make things insecure. Earlier this week, Congress was locked in another battle over spending, this time slowing down disaster relief to millions and, once again, creating the problem of a possible upcoming government shutdown. Finally a settlement was reached, so we wont have to go through all this again until the middle of November if everything stays the same. The people in Congress just dont get it. The people want the lawmakers to work together to solve the problems of the land. That means a little give-and-take on both sides. The Democrats should have gotten the message loud and clear in the election of 2010, when the Republicans took over the House and made gains in the Senate. They should realize that the trend could continue in 2012, possibly carrying all the way through to the presidential election. However, theres another way to look at it. The Republicans may be losing momentum by refusing to compromise, and that could backfire next year. Voters might consider that having one party in charge of all three entities, the House, Senate and presidency, would be an advantage, and they could look upon the GOP as the creators of all the ill will. That could mean the Republicans could lose all those gains from last year, and if that happens, that party will be pretty much dead in our lifetime. So it behooves both sides to get to working together to solve our problems, mainly the financial debacle we find ourselves in. If they dont, no incumbent will be safe in 2012, even the newly elected GOP members. Come to think of it, maybe thats not such a bad idea. Since we dont have a federal law imposing term limits, maybe the voters should implement such a law themselves. A complete turnover in Congress every few years might bring some new fresh ideas to the floor of the House and Senate.

Rose Ann sings her signature song, I Dont Care, and a stellar performance it is, reminiscent of her days on the New York stage.

Once again the team of Art and Dianna Schmidt is handling our sound system, a very arduous and technically difficult task, and they do it so well. In training to assist the Schmidts is Bruce MacDuffee who hopefully can spell them in times to come. They have been in the trenches for both theatre groups for a good many years. Sandy Wolfe has taken time off the the stage but has contributed greatly to the cause by taking over the responsibility of searching out and securing the necessary props for the play.

Its not my faultPresident Obama stands there in public and cries about how tough the job is and how his predecessor left him with such a mess. I remember another President in my lifetime who inherited a mess. On January, 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan beame the new President. He never wasted time blaming his predecessor for the problems he inherited. Thats because he was too busy solving them! And, those problems were many and quite serious. He got the economy going again, unemployment and interest rates dropped. And, as a bonus, he won the cold war and left the Soviet empire in ashes. Its sad that America now has a President who limits his own ability by talking too much and solving little to nothing. But, its cheerful to remember we once had a President who solved huge problems by his actions. Remember, children stand around and blame someone else and never take responsibility like this President. President Harry Truman said, The buck stops here! President Theodore Roosevelt said, Speak softly and carry a big stick and President Reagan once said in his inaugural address, and on this issue, there will be no compromise. President Obama says, Its not my fault! Walter A. Lamp Ocala Proud to be an AmericanThere was a great commercial on TV recently in which several individuals of obvious different origins declared proudly, I am an American. Anyone born here is guaranteed that distinction by our Constitution. It frustrates me to see how we have become infatuated with being hyphenated Americans! I am not sure when this practice started, but it is a bad practice and one that encourages division and should be stopped. I am of European descent but have never even thought of calling myself a European American. I, too, am an American and Im proud of it! Why is this so important? If one was out to destroy a country, state or even a family, one important thing they would do is to divide us in every way possible. This is because a Nation divided cannot stand, for United We Stand, Divided We Fall! It is now happening, because every where we look, we see division -and this division is leading to a culture collapse in America. Our culture is made up of the experience and practices of our people in matters of business, religion, entertainment, the Arts, customs, education, politics, government, the sciences, family, and the more general social system of relationships. Our culture is what makes us who we are as a people and as a nation. Our founders knew that our view of God and our worship would determine our culture, so they made no secret of who we are and on what we have built this land. This has been carved in wood, etched in stone, or painted on canvas in many of our historic government buildings and memorials throughout our land. Our U.S. Constitution and the individual States Constitutions refer to our being under the guidance of Almighty God. The biggest culprits are our national media and the politicians themselves. Every where you go you see editorials, letters, and broadcasts that promote class warfare, race differences, varying definitions of a family, the definition of marriage, our status as a GOD fearing Judea/Christian Nation and so on. There is a strong movement to remove God from our culture. We will have differences but these differences should not prevent us from pulling together as Americans, each one of us taking responsibility for ourselves and our families. By stopping the class envy, recognizing that jobs come from successful businesses, and honoring the message and truths of God, we will be just fine. After all, We are Americans! God Bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Good Sailor Bars(Letter sent to U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns) I've taken the liberty in sending you this for two reasons. The first is to show you that military folks are real people who need -no, make that "earned" -a time to let their hair down after doing in 10 to 12 hours what many of their civilian counter-parts do in 16 or 20 hours. The second reason is a bit more solemn. There's a message here that's very loud and clear between the lines, Congressman Sterns. Look for it....it's there. The message, in part, tells of young lads, and yes, like President Obama said, ALL VOLUNTEERS, who have foregone the fun and fancy, care-free and "what the hell" life so they could be part of the greatest "safety net" the world has ever known. And yet, as it has been since the word deficit crept into our language, the military men and women are the first, or second (the other being a civil servant) to be singled out as to "What can they do without so we can help reduce this deficit?? "What medical benefits can we reduce and yet ensure they receive vital medicines????" "What can they do without that they paid for by serving their country for twenty or more years"??? Many with their lives!!! "What can they do without highly paid administrators, recently appointed Czars, professional entertainers, members of both houses, CEO's, casino owners you get the picture who receive every day and truly believe ''they deserve it!" In closing, dear Congressman, I, and millions like me, and millions like the men in this email, hope you continue your staunch support for the military man and woman, and stand up and be counted as one who never turned your back on many who paid their dues in blood.

United Way will offer one monthly volunteer activity no fundraising only volunteering from October 2011 through March 2012. Middle School students will be able to participate in one or all of the six volunteer opportunities. This age can sometimes be challenging to place due to agency regulations, state or federal laws, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. We want our youth to get involved in the issues that face our community everyday and also help them get in the middle of finding solutions. United Ways first middle school volunteer event will be Dust the Dead, on Thursday, Oc. 13. United Way has proudly partnered with the City of Ocala to spruce up one of Ocalas historical cemeteries Greenwood Cemetery located on Northeast 3rd Street. For more information or to get involved, contact Chris Cotter at the United Way at 352-732-9696 or ccotter@uwmc.org. United Way starts middle school volunteer program Alzheimers caregivers can join support groupIf you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups. In addition to peer support, the groups will also invite specialists in the field who can answer questions about Dementia and Alzheimers disease, its causes, how a diagnosis is made and current research, as well as coping mechanisms for caregivers.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Florida and a Greenways volunteer, came to my assistance. Ranger George Risko Jr., Senior Forest Ranger in Marion County, also refused to leave the forest until my dog was recovered. Ranger George found my dog lying on a forest fire trail in the rain. It was getting dark when Ranger George and my dog drove up to the dry camp where I was attempting to keep dry under a picnic table. I am most impressed with the loyalty and concern which my dog and I experienced. I also wish to bring to your attention, Mr. Cornelius Bowne, a volunteer in Ross Prairie State Forest. Mr. Bowne helped to coordinate the search with Ranger George and my friends. I have no doubt that he would have checked on me at the campsite in the early morning had that become necessary. The people of Marion County are truly blessed to have such dedicated staff. To Ranger George and Mr. Cornelius Bowne my friends, my dog and I express a big Thank You. Patricia OMara Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 I must be the only one in this world of ours that truly appreciates quietness. Maybe its old-age stomping its tired old boots, but I think the world has gotten just a little bit noisier. As I got older, I thought my hearing would begin to diminish. I assure you, I am hearing more today than I have ever wanted to hear in all my life. I remember my grandfather and his hearing aid. When there was a family gathering and he was sitting quietly smiling, I came to understand he had turned his hearing aid off. How I envy him now. If only I could turn my hearing aid off. I have tried ignoring my wife, but I can assure you that was not a very good plan. To ignore your wife is to place your health in dire jeopardy. Who wants Alex Trebek breathing down your neck? Ill take American history for $100, Alex. Not long ago I had to take a trip flying the friendly skies. I do not mind flying, but it is not my favorite mode of travel. I would rather stay at home and dream of traveling. On a recent trip, I happened to sit next to an elderly man. We exchanged pleasantries and I settled down with a book hoping to get in a few pages before the trip ended. I had selected a very special book for this Its really quite a chatty world after all O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder trip. My elderly friend settled down with the full intention of rehearsing to me his entire autobiography. For an old gentleman, he had a fantastic memory. I think, but do not quote me here, he recited to me every blessed day of his life. If my recollection is correct, and I know I was brain fuzzy during the whole process, he related one incident at least four different times. Either he is the father of Groundhog Day, or many things in his life happened repeatedly. Last week I went to get my haircut at a local hair salon. I usually go to a particular one near my house and I stopped in for my regular haircut. A few people were ahead of me, so I sat down, picked up a magazine and was going to have a pleasant time waiting my turn. Not paying too much attention to the clientele, there was sitting next to me a very nice little girl. I made one mistake. I looked at her and said, And how are you today, little girl? That was the last sentence I got in for the next hour. She talked so much I thought her tongue would fall out. Then she talked some more and I thought my ears would fall off. How can anybody so young have so much to say? I am 10 times her age and I do not have one 10th as much to say to her, as she had to say to me. Who in the world is teaching these children to talk? Then, in the middle of her chat diarrhea, she looked at me and said, What do you think about that, mister? Not expecting it and not really knowing what she was talking about, I hesitated for a moment. My second mistake. Before I could take a good breath, she began her chat diarrhea as though she was just beginning. She was probably about six years of age with not a very large vocabulary but she knew how to use every word in her vocabulary a multitude of times. Some of her sentences were five minutes long, and at the end, I had no idea what she was saying. The end of her sentence had no apparent relationship to the beginning of her sentence. And the middle, well, who could follow that. Oh, how I pity her English teacher. I date back to the time before cell phones. I know not many people are living today who dates back that far. We have become a generation of cell phones. Before the cell phone era, that was the day, I could sneak off somewhere and nobody could find me. Oh, how I envy those glorious days of yesteryear. Now I pack one of those blasted cell phones wherever I go. No matter where I am, somebody can get a hold of me. When I say somebody, I am actually referring to my wife. As it stands now, I am within dialing distance of her Majesty. Thinking about this I have come up with, maybe not a solution, but at least a little reprieve for those of us who are tired of the noise. I propose a national noise-free-day celebrated every year. For 24 hours, nobody would be permitted to say anything. I know this would hit the politicians rather hard. Everybody knows if a politician does not speak for a 24-hour period the fickle electorate would forget about him or her. And, for a politician not to say anything for a 24-hour period it would cause him or her to die of suffocation. Actually, in either case the American public wins. This brings me to my favorite Bible verse. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalms 46:10 KJV). It is in the stillness that we begin to know God. What would happen if for a brief moment each day we became still before the presence of God? The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-6874240 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

I t arrived the other day. Very, innocuous looking white envelope, the kind we call a #10. Plain black block lettering with my name on in: Judith C. Siegal. It was official all right; nobody calls me Judith except doctors who dont know me well. The contents struck a chord with me because it has to do with a landmark age-related rite of passage. Speaking of age, the Torah has much to say on this subject. I am most gratified reading the fifth chapter of Genesis, the one with all the begets. Seems people in those days lived pretty long lives, this without benefit of baby aspirin, Crestor, high blood pressure pills, insulin and calcium supplements. Adams line, as the Torah relates, did pretty good in the longevity category. We have Adam living 930 years (this after begetting Seth and other sons and daughters), Seth living 912 years and Enoch, who was Seths son, living to 905. Other notable men of longevity of Adams line include: Kenan with 910 years, Mahalalel, 895 years and Jared son of Mahalalel with 962 (Must have been all those Subway sandwiches!). Jared begat Enoch when he was 162 (thats no big deal, Methuselah begat Lamech at 187 years!) Enoch lived for 365 and was evidently a righteous person because God took him. (Gen.5: 24) Methuselahs legendary lifespan was 969 years. Lemach, Methuselahs son begat the famous arkbuilder, Noah, when he was 162 years of age and died at 777 years old. Interesting that the Torah only names the male children, though each of the above mentioned people also had other sons and daughters. It would be my guess that the people mentioned were probably the scions of the families and the heirs of the clan. Since in Biblical times, the family name and inheritance came through the firstborn male, it does not surprise me that the Torah records things as such. Of course, the years seem a bit long, if not exaggerated by todays standards. Perhaps people counted time differently or the Biblical writers were trying to fill in the gaps in the Creation story. My other theory is that the people who lived long lives might have been very influential in their day and the number of years could be a metaphor for how much these people contributed to their clan and society at large. Other age-related stories include the birth of Isaac. Sarah, according to the Bible, was beyond childbearing years. As women know, you can easily have a change of life baby. The rabbinical midrash (explanation) on this story also relates how youthful Sarah looked. Carrying a child can do this to a woman. Conversely, when Abraham is about to sacrifice Isaac, Sarah dies, the rabbis say she knew what Abraham was about to do. The Psalmist says (Psalms 90:10) The span of our life is seventy years, or given the strength, eighty Teach us to count our days rightly, that we may obtain a wise heart. This seems to fit in with modern life expectation and not at all like the line of Adam. Still it is written that Moses died at 120 and to this day, Jews wish longevity to someone by blessing them to live to 120.Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com T O A D V E R T I S E H E R E C A L L T O M O R S U S I E A T 8 5 4 3 9 8 6 Analyzing the ages of people in the Bible J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE18 I kind of like that one because that would mean I have a lot more years to go! As Jews approach the holiday of Yom Kippur, the whole theme of repentance and human mortality take center stage. At the concluding service for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the actual deathbed confession is made. The holiday is very sobering, reminding us all of the limited time we have here on earth. We are exhorted to mend our ways and seek to follow the path of righteousness. As for the contents of that envelope, I have secreted it away in a very safe place. I would not want to misplace my Medicare card. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Unique opportunity with the Hospice of Marion County Journey Singers.

PLEASESEELANDING PAGE19 Personal Care Medical Practices opened July 1 at 6035 S.W. 54th St., Suite 200, in Ocala. A ribbon cutting was held recently with members of the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce. The medical office provides care for one yearly fee, with wellness visits included. The facility has a friendly, relaxing atmosphere, with a medical staff that takes the time to know the patients and talk with them. The business was started because there was a feeling that there was a need to bring back the way it used to be in the old days when you visited the doctor. The doctors can be reached at 352-6711830 or at info@pcmed.us. Personal medical care for one yearly fee Dr. Brady cuts the ribbon at the Chamber of Commerce ceremony last week.

Unlike Steig Larsen, Nesbo does not take his readers along for the ride by sharing clues with them. Rather, he withholds them until it suits his purpose to divulge them. And in Nemesis there are no social issues to concern us or local color to enhance the background. Nesbo is all about plot, plot, plot. And what a plot Nemesis has multilayered and highly complex. The beginning will blow you away. A masked man walks in to an Oslo bank, and with a gun pointed at the cashiers head, orders the manager to fill his knapsack with ATM money on the count of 25 or he will shoot attractive Stine Grette. All is going well as the panicked manager hurries to comply with the demand. The bag filled, the robber pauses instead of fleeing. He spins Stines chair around and whispers something to her: She was focused on her faceless tormentor; her own face went through a slow, gradual transformation as the significance of the words he whispered to her appeared to sink in. Then, after indicating with gloved fingers that the transaction has taken six counts too long, he pulls the trigger and Stine falls backward like a mangled doll. All this is recorded on grainy closed-circuit television. Detective Harry Hole and his assistant Beate Lonn will study the footage for hours, hoping to break the case. Meanwhile, alcoholic Harry spends an innocent evening with a former girlfriend, but awakens with an all too familiar thundering headache and no memory of the last 12 hours. The girl is found dead and Hole becomes the prime suspect in an investigation led by his longtime adversary Tom Wassler. The death toll will mount and the nonstop action will race from the cool streets of Oslo to some steamy villages in Brazil. The novel is packed with unusual characters like a jailed gypsy robber not unlike Hannibal Lector, a young woman with a phenomenal memory for faces that only ten people in the world possess, and others. The book is long (500 pages) but that kind of length provides behavioral moments that build on each other. Nemesis is both nail-biting and cerebral.

PLEASESEELANDING PAGE19 Personal Care Medical Practices opened July 1 at 6035 S.W. 54th St., Suite 200, in Ocala. A ribbon cutting was held recently with members of the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce. The medical office provides care for one yearly fee, with wellness visits included. The facility has a friendly, relaxing atmosphere, with a medical staff that takes the time to know the patients and talk with them. The business was started because there was a feeling that there was a need to bring back the way it used to be in the old days when you visited the doctor. The doctors can be reached at 352-6711830 or at info@pcmed.us. Personal medical care for one yearly fee Dr. Brady cuts the ribbon at the Chamber of Commerce ceremony last week. This is one of the examination rooms at the facility, just off Southwest 60th Avenue.

I t arrived the other day. Very, innocuous looking white envelope, the kind we call a #10. Plain black block lettering with my name on in: Judith C. Siegal. It was official all right; nobody calls me Judith except doctors who dont know me well. The contents struck a chord with me because it has to do with a landmark age-related rite of passage. Speaking of age, the Torah has much to say on this subject. I am most gratified reading the fifth chapter of Genesis, the one with all the begets. Seems people in those days lived pretty long lives, this without benefit of baby aspirin, Crestor, high blood pressure pills, insulin and calcium supplements. Adams line, as the Torah relates, did pretty good in the longevity category. We have Adam living 930 years (this after begetting Seth and other sons and daughters), Seth living 912 years and Enoch, who was Seths son, living to 905. Other notable men of longevity of Adams line include: Kenan with 910 years, Mahalalel, 895 years and Jared son of Mahalalel with 962 (Must have been all those Subway sandwiches!). Jared begat Enoch when he was 162 (thats no big deal, Methuselah begat Lamech at 187 years!) Enoch lived for 365 and was evidently a righteous person because God took him. (Gen.5: 24) Methuselahs legendary lifespan was 969 years. Lemach, Methuselahs son begat the famous arkbuilder, Noah, when he was 162 years of age and died at 777 years old. Interesting that the Torah only names the male children, though each of the above mentioned people also had other sons and daughters. It would be my guess that the people mentioned were probably the scions of the families and the heirs of the clan. Since in Biblical times, the family name and inheritance came through the firstborn male, it does not surprise me that the Torah records things as such. Of course, the years seem a bit long, if not exaggerated by todays standards. Perhaps people counted time differently or the Biblical writers were trying to fill in the gaps in the Creation story. My other theory is that the people who lived long lives might have been very influential in their day and the number of years could be a metaphor for how much these people contributed to their clan and society at large. Other age-related stories include the birth of Isaac. Sarah, according to the Bible, was beyond childbearing years. As women know, you can easily have a change of life baby. The rabbinical midrash (explanation) on this story also relates how youthful Sarah looked. Carrying a child can do this to a woman. Conversely, when Abraham is about to sacrifice Isaac, Sarah dies, the rabbis say she knew what Abraham was about to do. The Psalmist says (Psalms 90:10) The span of our life is seventy years, or given the strength, eighty Teach us to count our days rightly, that we may obtain a wise heart. This seems to fit in with modern life expectation and not at all like the line of Adam. Still it is written that Moses died at 120 and to this day, Jews wish longevity to someone by blessing them to live to 120.Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com T O A D V E R T I S E H E R E C A L L T O M O R S U S I E A T 8 5 4 3 9 8 6 Analyzing the ages of people in the Bible J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE18 I kind of like that one because that would mean I have a lot more years to go! As Jews approach the holiday of Yom Kippur, the whole theme of repentance and human mortality take center stage. At the concluding service for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the actual deathbed confession is made. The holiday is very sobering, reminding us all of the limited time we have here on earth. We are exhorted to mend our ways and seek to follow the path of righteousness. As for the contents of that envelope, I have secreted it away in a very safe place. I would not want to misplace my Medicare card. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Unique opportunity with the Hospice of Marion County Journey Singers.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Florida and a Greenways volunteer, came to my assistance. Ranger George Risko Jr., Senior Forest Ranger in Marion County, also refused to leave the forest until my dog was recovered. Ranger George found my dog lying on a forest fire trail in the rain. It was getting dark when Ranger George and my dog drove up to the dry camp where I was attempting to keep dry under a picnic table. I am most impressed with the loyalty and concern which my dog and I experienced. I also wish to bring to your attention, Mr. Cornelius Bowne, a volunteer in Ross Prairie State Forest. Mr. Bowne helped to coordinate the search with Ranger George and my friends. I have no doubt that he would have checked on me at the campsite in the early morning had that become necessary. The people of Marion County are truly blessed to have such dedicated staff. To Ranger George and Mr. Cornelius Bowne my friends, my dog and I express a big Thank You. Patricia OMara Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 I must be the only one in this world of ours that truly appreciates quietness. Maybe its old-age stomping its tired old boots, but I think the world has gotten just a little bit noisier. As I got older, I thought my hearing would begin to diminish. I assure you, I am hearing more today than I have ever wanted to hear in all my life. I remember my grandfather and his hearing aid. When there was a family gathering and he was sitting quietly smiling, I came to understand he had turned his hearing aid off. How I envy him now. If only I could turn my hearing aid off. I have tried ignoring my wife, but I can assure you that was not a very good plan. To ignore your wife is to place your health in dire jeopardy. Who wants Alex Trebek breathing down your neck? Ill take American history for $100, Alex. Not long ago I had to take a trip flying the friendly skies. I do not mind flying, but it is not my favorite mode of travel. I would rather stay at home and dream of traveling. On a recent trip, I happened to sit next to an elderly man. We exchanged pleasantries and I settled down with a book hoping to get in a few pages before the trip ended. I had selected a very special book for this Its really quite a chatty world after all O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder trip. My elderly friend settled down with the full intention of rehearsing to me his entire autobiography. For an old gentleman, he had a fantastic memory. I think, but do not quote me here, he recited to me every blessed day of his life. If my recollection is correct, and I know I was brain fuzzy during the whole process, he related one incident at least four different times. Either he is the father of Groundhog Day, or many things in his life happened repeatedly. Last week I went to get my haircut at a local hair salon. I usually go to a particular one near my house and I stopped in for my regular haircut. A few people were ahead of me, so I sat down, picked up a magazine and was going to have a pleasant time waiting my turn. Not paying too much attention to the clientele, there was sitting next to me a very nice little girl. I made one mistake. I looked at her and said, And how are you today, little girl? That was the last sentence I got in for the next hour. She talked so much I thought her tongue would fall out. Then she talked some more and I thought my ears would fall off. How can anybody so young have so much to say? I am 10 times her age and I do not have one 10th as much to say to her, as she had to say to me. Who in the world is teaching these children to talk? Then, in the middle of her chat diarrhea, she looked at me and said, What do you think about that, mister? Not expecting it and not really knowing what she was talking about, I hesitated for a moment. My second mistake. Before I could take a good breath, she began her chat diarrhea as though she was just beginning. She was probably about six years of age with not a very large vocabulary but she knew how to use every word in her vocabulary a multitude of times. Some of her sentences were five minutes long, and at the end, I had no idea what she was saying. The end of her sentence had no apparent relationship to the beginning of her sentence. And the middle, well, who could follow that. Oh, how I pity her English teacher. I date back to the time before cell phones. I know not many people are living today who dates back that far. We have become a generation of cell phones. Before the cell phone era, that was the day, I could sneak off somewhere and nobody could find me. Oh, how I envy those glorious days of yesteryear. Now I pack one of those blasted cell phones wherever I go. No matter where I am, somebody can get a hold of me. When I say somebody, I am actually referring to my wife. As it stands now, I am within dialing distance of her Majesty. Thinking about this I have come up with, maybe not a solution, but at least a little reprieve for those of us who are tired of the noise. I propose a national noise-free-day celebrated every year. For 24 hours, nobody would be permitted to say anything. I know this would hit the politicians rather hard. Everybody knows if a politician does not speak for a 24-hour period the fickle electorate would forget about him or her. And, for a politician not to say anything for a 24-hour period it would cause him or her to die of suffocation. Actually, in either case the American public wins. This brings me to my favorite Bible verse. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalms 46:10 KJV). It is in the stillness that we begin to know God. What would happen if for a brief moment each day we became still before the presence of God? The Rev. James L.

Its not my faultPresident Obama stands there in public and cries about how tough the job is and how his predecessor left him with such a mess. I remember another President in my lifetime who inherited a mess. On January, 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan beame the new President. He never wasted time blaming his predecessor for the problems he inherited. Thats because he was too busy solving them! And, those problems were many and quite serious. He got the economy going again, unemployment and interest rates dropped. And, as a bonus, he won the cold war and left the Soviet empire in ashes. Its sad that America now has a President who limits his own ability by talking too much and solving little to nothing. But, its cheerful to remember we once had a President who solved huge problems by his actions. Remember, children stand around and blame someone else and never take responsibility like this President. President Harry Truman said, The buck stops here! President Theodore Roosevelt said, Speak softly and carry a big stick and President Reagan once said in his inaugural address, and on this issue, there will be no compromise. President Obama says, Its not my fault! Walter A. Lamp Ocala Proud to be an AmericanThere was a great commercial on TV recently in which several individuals of obvious different origins declared proudly, I am an American. Anyone born here is guaranteed that distinction by our Constitution. It frustrates me to see how we have become infatuated with being hyphenated Americans! I am not sure when this practice started, but it is a bad practice and one that encourages division and should be stopped. I am of European descent but have never even thought of calling myself a European American. I, too, am an American and Im proud of it! Why is this so important? If one was out to destroy a country, state or even a family, one important thing they would do is to divide us in every way possible. This is because a Nation divided cannot stand, for United We Stand, Divided We Fall! It is now happening, because every where we look, we see division -and this division is leading to a culture collapse in America. Our culture is made up of the experience and practices of our people in matters of business, religion, entertainment, the Arts, customs, education, politics, government, the sciences, family, and the more general social system of relationships. Our culture is what makes us who we are as a people and as a nation. Our founders knew that our view of God and our worship would determine our culture, so they made no secret of who we are and on what we have built this land. This has been carved in wood, etched in stone, or painted on canvas in many of our historic government buildings and memorials throughout our land. Our U.S. Constitution and the individual States Constitutions refer to our being under the guidance of Almighty God. The biggest culprits are our national media and the politicians themselves. Every where you go you see editorials, letters, and broadcasts that promote class warfare, race differences, varying definitions of a family, the definition of marriage, our status as a GOD fearing Judea/Christian Nation and so on. There is a strong movement to remove God from our culture. We will have differences but these differences should not prevent us from pulling together as Americans, each one of us taking responsibility for ourselves and our families. By stopping the class envy, recognizing that jobs come from successful businesses, and honoring the message and truths of God, we will be just fine. After all, We are Americans! God Bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Good Sailor Bars(Letter sent to U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns) I've taken the liberty in sending you this for two reasons. The first is to show you that military folks are real people who need -no, make that "earned" -a time to let their hair down after doing in 10 to 12 hours what many of their civilian counter-parts do in 16 or 20 hours. The second reason is a bit more solemn. There's a message here that's very loud and clear between the lines, Congressman Sterns. Look for it....it's there. The message, in part, tells of young lads, and yes, like President Obama said, ALL VOLUNTEERS, who have foregone the fun and fancy, care-free and "what the hell" life so they could be part of the greatest "safety net" the world has ever known. And yet, as it has been since the word deficit crept into our language, the military men and women are the first, or second (the other being a civil servant) to be singled out as to "What can they do without so we can help reduce this deficit?? "What medical benefits can we reduce and yet ensure they receive vital medicines????" "What can they do without that they paid for by serving their country for twenty or more years"??? Many with their lives!!! "What can they do without highly paid administrators, recently appointed Czars, professional entertainers, members of both houses, CEO's, casino owners you get the picture who receive every day and truly believe ''they deserve it!" In closing, dear Congressman, I, and millions like me, and millions like the men in this email, hope you continue your staunch support for the military man and woman, and stand up and be counted as one who never turned your back on many who paid their dues in blood.

United Way will offer one monthly volunteer activity no fundraising only volunteering from October 2011 through March 2012. Middle School students will be able to participate in one or all of the six volunteer opportunities. This age can sometimes be challenging to place due to agency regulations, state or federal laws, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. We want our youth to get involved in the issues that face our community everyday and also help them get in the middle of finding solutions. United Ways first middle school volunteer event will be Dust the Dead, on Thursday, Oc. 13. United Way has proudly partnered with the City of Ocala to spruce up one of Ocalas historical cemeteries Greenwood Cemetery located on Northeast 3rd Street. For more information or to get involved, contact Chris Cotter at the United Way at 352-732-9696 or ccotter@uwmc.org.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com E very White House administration likes to have its First Lady dedicated to a significant domestic cause. Mrs. Obama began gradually in 2009 by turning over some expensive grass and planting a victory garden in the White House back yard. At the time it was unclear whether her cause would be nutrition or farming. A concern arose when it was discovered that the first crop from Obama Acres might not be wholesome. In support of environmental awareness, former residents Bill and Hilary Clinton had White House sewage sludge spread as fertilizer on the White House lawn. After careful investigation, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the White House sod a fit-to-grow-food seal of approval. The success of the first year crop motivated Mrs. O to expand the White House garden to 1500 square feet in 2010. Its a big back yard. In March of this year Mrs. O and willing workers from local grammar schools planted a third garden of cabbage, collards, cauliflower, Swiss chard, beets, and other yummy and yukky veggies. The president does not like beets. Washington believes Americans respond best to domestic challenges which are treated with the same seriousness as military conflicts for example the war on poverty and the war on drugs. Mrs. Os challenge is a war on obesity, which she calls a threat to national security. Like all causes, the war on obesity is generating positive and negative comment. A TV personality on the Food Network has suggested making the war on obesity a global human rights issue, just as important as climate change. As a human rights problem obesity can be viewed as a result of deprivation and oppression, in need of significant government intervention and assistance. On the other hand two research fellows at the Democracy Institute authored a put-down titled Diet Nation: Exposing the Obesity Crusade. They call it a manufactured epidemic. An early achievement of the war on obesity has been motivating FDA to finish a project it began in 2003 to redesign the boxes, cans, cartons, and labels for every food product. After eight years, FDA credits its sudden inspiration and production to major advances in nutrition regulations by the Obama administration. The next inspired accomplishment of FDA is menu labeling regulations for restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee chains, and vending machines. We doubt there is anyone with access to news and information who hasnt heard that the primary cause of overweight is more calories consumed than calories burned in other words bad eating habits and lack of physical activity. We who are skeptical about new government initiatives have to wonder whether the White House garden was a planned prelude to the declaration of war on obesity an expansion of the granny state. We wonder how long will it be until the White House asks Congress to create an FDA obesity bureau to manage the war on fat. Maybe the funding can be raised by erecting a vegetable stand on Pennsylvania Avenue. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 L ast week, while on vacation, I had given thought to going to my high schools 50th class reunion for the Class of 1961. Where most schools have the ceremony in the fall of what would have been your senior year, Bergen Catholic does it three months after the 50th anniversary of the actual graduation day in June 1961. I dont travel as well as I used to, so I dutifully filled out the questionnaire but didnt make the trip. In going over those 50 years, it made me think of things that have come into our language in all that time. If you had mentioned some of these words back in 1961, and if youre someone who remembers picking up the phone and hearing Number, please, then here are the responses you would have gotten: Whats a microwave oven? Whats a personal computer? Whats a hard drive? What is software? What is the Internet? What does online mean? What is cyberspace? Whats a webcam? Whats a blog? What is cable television? What is satellite television? You mean all programs will be telecast in color some day? Whats a VCR? Whats a DVR? What is Tivo? Whats a remote control for the TV? What does The Eagle has landed mean? Who is Neil Armstrong? Where is Vietnam? What are the Twin Towers? Who is Osama bin Laden? Whats a Chunnel? Actor Ronald Reagan was elected as what? Who is Jimmy Carter? Who is George Bush? Whats a touch tone phone? Why do I call 911 when things go wrong? You have to pay how much to mail a letter? Whats a ZIP code? Whats a shopping mall? Whats a debit card? What is direct deposit? Marion Countys population is what? Whats a gated community? You have to pay how much for a gallon of gas? You have to pump your own gas? Why wont your doctor come to your house when youre sick? Whats an MRI? What is CPR? Who are the Rays and Marlins? You mean they play hockey in Florida? You mean someone will break Roger Maris home run record? What do steroids have to do with playing baseball? Whats a wild card race in sports? And finally, a question Im still not sure how to answer: Whats a tweet?

J ust when you thought it was safe to go into the water, here come the jaws of Congress to make things insecure. Earlier this week, Congress was locked in another battle over spending, this time slowing down disaster relief to millions and, once again, creating the problem of a possible upcoming government shutdown. Finally a settlement was reached, so we wont have to go through all this again until the middle of November if everything stays the same. The people in Congress just dont get it. The people want the lawmakers to work together to solve the problems of the land. That means a little give-and-take on both sides. The Democrats should have gotten the message loud and clear in the election of 2010, when the Republicans took over the House and made gains in the Senate. They should realize that the trend could continue in 2012, possibly carrying all the way through to the presidential election. However, theres another way to look at it. The Republicans may be losing momentum by refusing to compromise, and that could backfire next year. Voters might consider that having one party in charge of all three entities, the House, Senate and presidency, would be an advantage, and they could look upon the GOP as the creators of all the ill will. That could mean the Republicans could lose all those gains from last year, and if that happens, that party will be pretty much dead in our lifetime. So it behooves both sides to get to working together to solve our problems, mainly the financial debacle we find ourselves in. If they dont, no incumbent will be safe in 2012, even the newly elected GOP members. Come to think of it, maybe thats not such a bad idea. Since we dont have a federal law imposing term limits, maybe the voters should implement such a law themselves. A complete turnover in Congress every few years might bring some new fresh ideas to the floor of the House and Senate.

He serenades her with a rendition of In My Merry Oldsmobile which leads them to the church where wedding bells peal. Rose Ann sings her signature song, I Dont Care, and a stellar performance it is, reminiscent of her days on the New York stage. Franco Piscitelli is at his best designing and constructing some fabulous scenery with a special assist from Hal Weber. They have put together scenery that will have audiences in awe. Once again the team of Art and Dianna Schmidt is handling our sound system, a very arduous and technically difficult task, and they do it so well. In training to assist the Schmidts is Bruce MacDuffee who hopefully can spell them in times to come. They have been in the trenches for both theatre groups for a good many years. Sandy Wolfe has taken time off the the stage but has contributed greatly to the cause by taking over the responsibility of searching out and securing the necessary props for the play.

Planting bulbs such as amaryllis, zephyr lily, Aztec lily, calla lily and walking iris should be done in the fall. Caladium bulbs should be dug when yellowing, cleaned, dried and stored.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Y esterday was National Coffee Day. I was out celebrating the whole day drinking coffee at restaurants and coffee shops while keeping my ears cocked to find material for todays Pun Alley. When I finally came home really wide-awake my wife asked if I would be able sleep after so much coffee. I said, Its no problem; Ive done this before. I count until three and then I sleep. And that works? she asked. No, sometimes, I count until half past three. Divorce liquidityAfter suffering through years of his wifes awful coffee, a man spit it out and took the coffee maker to his lawyer. Dropping it on the attorneys desk, the man growled, Here they are! Here are what? the startled lawyer asked. The man replied, Grounds for divorce. Lit up John stayed up half the night studying for his English Literature exam. He drank coffee almost constantly while attempting to read The Canterbury Tales. Early morning his dad woke up and found John studying, and asked, What have you got there? He answered, Just my cup and Chaucer. Getting ahead A friend was having lunch with his nine-yearold son when the waitress came by to ask if they wanted a drink. Ill have a decapitated coffee, the son said in all seriousness. The waitress smiled and poured him a cup. Not to be outdone, she later returned with the coffeepot and asked, Can I put a head on that for you? Trying timesAt a social reception, a lawyer said to a judge, I see that you are drinking coffee. Why dont you try something more stimulating? Have you ever tried bourbon? No, replied the judge, but I have tried several who have. Coffee breaksShow me an administrative assistant who cant make coffee, and Ill show you an employee with grounds for dismissal. Birds meet for coffee in a nest cafe. I told my family I never want to depend on a machine and fluids to keep me alive. Thats when they took away my computer, my TV remote and the coffee maker. The sociologist joined the regulars at the coffee shop to study the counter culture. Coffee served on The Titanic was Sanka. I was having coffee at the golf course when I saw a large amount of black sediment in the bottom of the cup. So I called the grounds keeper. He got fired at the coffee shop for coming to work in a T-shirt.Regular customer The waitress was refilling cups of coffee when she stopped at the table next to mine. Regular? she asked her customer. Yes, thank you, said the man. Due to a steady diet of fruit.Black resultsEven though Clifford was extremely awkward he was very sociable and was always invited to high-society parties. At one such party he spilled his entire cup of black coffee over his hostess evening dress that she had just bought in Paris for a lot of money. Tearfully gazing at her ruined gown, flushed with anger, she turned on her clumsy guest and exclaimed, Go, and never darken my Dior again! Pointed commentA husband was throwing knives at his wifes photo while she was out of town. But none of the knives were hitting the photo. When the wife called up she asked, Honey, what are you doing? Her husband replied. Im missing you. OrderA man walked into a coffee shop, and was given a huge mug that he took to his table. When he tried to drink it, he found that instead of coffee, the mug contained a pair of beige cotton trousers. So he went to the shop manager to complain. The manager said, Its exactly what you asked for, No it isnt! said the customer, How can this possibly be what I ordered? Its a cup o chinos, the manager replied. Its the breaksSeveral office people were sitting in the break room having coffee. One of them opened up the newspaper and read everyones horoscope. When she finished, a colleague asked her about her beliefs regarding horoscopes. Gwen, she said, Do you really believe in astrology? Oh, no, Gwen replied. I dont believe in any of that stuff. Im a Capricorn and were very skeptical.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cosmic changes create a potential for disruptions in your travel plans. In the meantime, you might want to consider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counter-productive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Venus offers encouragement to romance-seeking Virgos who are ready to get up, get out and meet more people, one of whom could be that long-sought soul mate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An ongoing problem with a coworker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decision-making this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown! Six more points! Thats what the youthful cheerleaders were yelling at the flag football game on Saturday, Sept.17 at Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field. This is the third year for the Upward Flag Football and Cheerleading sport at Joy. 160 people turned out to participate and watch this exciting event. This year the cheerleading sport was favored as there were 32 cheerleaders and 28 players grades K4 through 6th grade. Even though it was a hot, humid, buggy morning, the coaches and the four teams were ready to go on the field. Teams included the Jets and Giants, for the younger players, and the Texans and Cowboys for the older players. Pastor Ed Holloway, organizer of the program, began the day with a prayer and some comments. He remarked that the communication system and the scoreboard would not be a problem, since they did not have any. He told the players not to worry as their scores did not go on any league records anywhere. One small player answered with good. He encouraged them to listen to their coaches, have some fun while supporting the efforts of their teammates. Most of the participating families reside in and around the Ocala area. Most had heard about the program from their friends. Some said that they liked the Upward program at Joy because it is well-organized and all the kids had their uniforms before the games started. One parent said this is a good opportunity for his child to learn, interact with other kids and get some exercise. When the kids were asked what they hope to get out of this experience, Austin said Have fun, and Christian said, Make a touchdown! So if you want to see some enthusiastic young people enjoy the game of flag football and cheering the teams on, come on out to Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field every Saturday at 10 a.m. The program continues through Nov. 12. Joy Lutheran Church is located at 7045 S.W. 83rd Place on S.R. 200 in Ocala. For more information contact 854-4509. Youngsters at Joy Lutheran are ready for some football PHOTOS BY NORM HALVORSENOn the way to a touchdown. The Joy Flag Football Cheerleaders shaking their pompoms and shouting for a touchdown.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ond flight: 1st place Bea Terry, 2nd place tie Joan OBrien and Salita Timmermeyer; third flight: 1st place Gayle Feeman, 2nd place Leslie Rizzo, 3rd placeKathy Kollar. Salita Timmermeyer was closest to the pin. Royal Oaks Lady NinersThe Lady Niners welcome our newest member, Phyllis Oldfield! On Sept. 15, we had our Fall Opening Scramble followed by a general meeting and lunch. The team of B.J. Lassiter, Charlotte Green and Julie Jackson won after a scorecard playoff due to a tie. The second place team was Elsa Berbig, Sally Crass and Joyce Madill. The team of Phyllis Oldfield, Rae Stover and Cindy Kocher were third. Tee to Green was the game played on Sept. 22, since the greens had just been aerated. Elsa Berbig won, with Phyllis Oldfield second and Salita Timmermeyer third. This was the first week for the Closest to the Pin contest, which was voted on at the general meeting the week prior. The 16th hole was the contest hole, and B.J. Lassiter was the winner. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on the 23rd of September was a real challenge to the participants. Instead of playing three best net, all four scores were counted. No taking a bad hole off! The threesomes had a blind for the fourth score. On top of that, the greens were aerated during the week, and were slow and inconsistent. However, this only added to the fun of the match. The winners, with a score of 266 were Ron Tennant, Don Aubrey and John Foutty. Second with a 278 were Bob Gray, Ron Topp, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Third with a 281 were Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, Charlie Elder and John Cerlenko. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Sam Sample, Tom Ducz, Don Aubrey, and Paul Colatruglio. The day was hot and muggy, due to the good rains we have been receiving. This will help the greens, as well as fill our aquifer. Who says fall is here?

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 U.S. high school students and their teachers are invited to participate in the Bill of Rights Institutes sixth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution, said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. This context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government. Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty? The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (First Place), $500 (Second Place), and $250 (Third Place). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education, said Ross. Over 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. Complete contest details can be found below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest.

Is it still today? Walter Maliszewski, Camden, NJ Medical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Officials scrambled for months to figure out where the waste was coming from, and eventually zeroed in on New York Citys Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island. Sub-optimal systems there were not successfully containing medical waste and other garbage on site, and New Jersey beaches and vacationers and business ownerswere paying the price. Although no one was injured or exposed to disease by the washed up waste, the public was especially alarmed given the HIV/AIDS crisis gripping the nation at that time. New York City was required to pay $1 million for past pollution damages and had to shoulder the cost of clean-up at Jersey Shore beaches as well. The resulting loss of tourism cost business owners throughout the affected region as much as 40 percent of their revenue, with total losses estimated at well over $1 billion. Some New Jersey business owners remain upset that New York wasnt forced to pay them reparations for lost revenue as well. In the wake of the scare, Congress enacted the Medical Waste Tracking Act in 1988, requiring the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a program to better track medical waste from cradleto-grave so that it didnt end up fouling beaches or any other environments. While the program was not renewed when it expired in 1991, it served as a model for how states and municipalities could better track potentially dangerous medical waste while also helping medical facilities institute systems and processes for making sure they knew where their waste was going and that it would be disposed of responsibly. Meanwhile, New York and New Jersey have coordinated on setting up and maintaining their own systems to stem the so-called syringe tides. The cornerstone is a multi-agency Medical waste washing up on beaches E ARTH TALK PHOTO COURTESY ISTOCKMedical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Although that problem was addressed for the most part, bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the U.S. last year.

Rabies. 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. Worldwide, more than 55,000 people die from rabies every year, according to the World Health Organization. World Rabies Day is Sept. 28, and Marion County Animal Services and the Marion County Health Department want to help you protect your pets, yourself and others. Under Florida law, any pet more than three months old must receive a rabies vaccine and county license. Marion County Animal Services makes it easy to comply with the law and 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.

These generic phrases are included on most food packages, along with varying forms of numerical date stamps. But what do they actually mean? How good is best and how bad is it after its not best anymore? If food product dating lingo like this has made you nearly lose your appetite, read on for an explanation that will hopefully clear this culinary conundrum. Although a dating system exists, its neither standardized nor required by federal regulations. Only infant formula and baby food are federally required to include a use-by date based on nutrient and texture quality and should not be bought or used past that date. States regulate food product dating for all other foods, using either code dating or calendar dating. Code dating is usually found on shelf-stable products such as cans, jars and boxes. These codes represent date and time of manufacture and are used to direct product rotation as well as to facilitate location and collection in a food recall. These dates do not imply the food safety. Calendar dating is found mainly on perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products. Calendar dates (sell-by, best if used by/before and use-by dates) identify the time range of peak quality, but not safety. You may be surprised to learn that though these dates give an idea for general shelf-life and optimum quality, they dont indicate concrete time periods for safety. Much of food safety involves the proper handling and storage of food. With the exception of baby formula and food, food that is expired or past the dates printed on the packages may still be safe to consume for a time. More importantly, food that hasnt expired may be unsafe if it hasnt been stored properly. Remember the importance of time and temperature; perishable food requires temperature control within certain time guidelines to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that can cause foodborne illness. Consider food product dates as useful guidelines for perishable food. But dont forget to take these easy but crucial steps to ensure your food remains safe to eat. Buy food before the expiration date. Promptly refrigerate perishable foods at 40 degrees or below. Ensure food does not stay at room temperature for more than two hours. Freeze perishable foods that will not be used before the expiration date. Frozen foods with expired dates are safe indefinitely as long as the product remains continuously frozen.

The victim provided deputies with a description of the jewelry that was in the container, which was valued at more than $5,700. Later, she discovered that there was a prescription bottle of Oxycodone in the bedroom. The bottle was still there, but 47 pills were missing. Det. Ed Mobley traced Hall to the motel and recovered the plastic container containing several items. However, some of the jewelry was missing. Mobley then checked pawn shops for Hall's roommate, Justin Newsome, 24, and discovered he had allegedly pawned several items of jewelry. Newsome was arrested on Sept. 26 and charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property, one count of engaging in a pawnbroker business without a license and one count of violation of a pawnbroker transaction.The victim responded to both pawn shops and paid $1,525 to get her jewelry back. In other reports, two drivers were accused of DUI. Christopher Calvin Latner, 26, of Rainbow Lakes, was stopped for no seat belt. After the field sobriety test, his breath was tested at .017 and .0188. Joseph D. Smith, 25, of Southwest 39th Avenue, was stopped for unauthorized use of a vehicle. He was charged with DUI and driving while license suspended. TAKENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SUMMERFIELD The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force located and arrested fugitive Charles Eugene Grubbs, 47, of Summerfield, Monday in southeast Marion County. Grubbs was wanted in Marion County on an outstanding arrest warrant for sexual battery on a person under 12 years of age. An investigation by the Marion County Sheriffs Office revealed Grubbs allegedly sexually battered a female child on June 23 while a family member of Grubbs was babysitting the child. The child later told her mother of the incident, prompting the childs mother to notify law enforcement. Through investigation, detectives identified Grubbs as the suspect. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on Aug. 29. The case was submitted to the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force by Task Force members at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. The subsequent fugitive investigation revealed Grubbs, after the sexual battery, had fled from Florida. Task Force members tracked Grubbs to Alabama, Georgia, and eventually back to Marion County where Grubbs was located hiding in an abandoned trailer located on the 14900 block of Southeast 95th Avenue in Summerfield. Task Force members developed information that Grubbs was possibly staying in the abandoned trailer and immediately initiated surveillance. At approximately 2:45 p.m., Task Force members including investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, and the Gainesville Police Department surrounded the trailer and ordered Grubbs to come out at gunpoint. Grubbs initially failed to comply but eventually surrendered to Task Force members without incident. Grubbs was arrested on the outstanding warrant, transported to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, and later booked into the Marion County Jail. Todays arrest was due to the combined efforts of several law enforcement agencies in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll. Despite originally fleeing the state, Grubbs has been caught and will face the charges in Marion County.

Thanks to the planwhich relies on surveillance by environmental groups as well as routine and special clean-up sweeps by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the implementation of a communications network to facilitate the reporting of incidents and quick responsesbeach closures declined from more than 70 miles in 1988 to less than four miles in 1989, with closures remaining at similarly low levels ever since. Of course, medical waste is hardly the only problem facing Americas beaches and coastal waters. According to the non-profit Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the country in 2010 alone. NRDC reports on water quality at U.S. beaches every year in its series of Testing the Waters reports. Pressure from the group has helped spur the EPA to agree to overhaul Clean Water Act regulations pertaining to urban and suburban storm water runoff and update decades-old beach water quality standards by 2012. These improvements should help to keep beaches from the Jersey Shore to the Great Lakes to California, and points in between, clear of debris and safe for swimmers and sunbathers of every stripe.

Dear EarthTalk: What is nonpoint source pollution? How much of a problem is it and how can it be controlled? Devon Corey, New York, NY Unlike pollution that comes from specific industrial factories, sewage treatment plants and other easily discernible points, nonpoint source pollution comes from many diffuse sources, but in the aggregate creates a formidable challenge for municipal, state and federal environmental and water control authorities. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nonpoint source pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground (where it...) picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters and ground waters. Some of the most common pollutants in nonpoint source pollution include excess fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides from agricultural lands and residential areas and oil, grease and toxic chemicals from urban runoff and energy production. Sediment from construction, mining and agricultural sites as well as salts, acids, bacteria and atmospheric deposition from myriad sources also play a role. While its effects vary region to region, nonpoint source pollution is likely the largest threat to our water quality. The U.S. has made tremendous advances in the past 25 years to clean up the aquatic environment by controlling pollution from industries and sewage treatment plants, says the EPA. Unfortunately, we did not do enough to control pollution from diffuse, or nonpoint, sources. The EPA also calls nonpoint source pollution the U.S.s largest source of water quality problems and the main reason 40 percent of our rivers, lakes, and estuaries are not clean enough to meet basic uses such as fishing or swimming. Because it comes from so many sources, regulating nonpoint source pollution is almost impossible, so it really comes down to individuals taking steps to minimize the pollution generated by their actions. The EPA reports that we can all do our part by: keeping litter, pet waste, leaves and debris out of street gutters and storm drains, which usually drain right into nearby water bodies; applying lawn and garden chemicals sparingly; disposing of used oil, antifreeze, paints and other household chemicals properly, that is, at your nearest hazardous household waste drop-off, not in storm drains; cleaning up spilled brake fluid, oil, grease and antifreeze, not hosing them into the street where they will eventually reach local waterways; and controlling soil erosion on your property by planting ground cover and stabilizing erosion-prone areas. Beyond what we can do individually, local, regional and state governments can also help reduce nonpoint source pollution by enacting and enforcing building codes and other rules that can reduce outflows. The voluntary reduction in phosphates in dishwashing detergents in the U.S. last year, for example, was a big step in reducing the nutrient load into our streams and lakes. Some municipalities have gone so far as to mandate erosion and sediment control ordinances requiring the construction of natural buffers in building and landscaping projects to filter out pollutants before they reach local watersheds. If your community doesnt have similar rules in place, encourage your local officials to enact them. CONTACT: EPAs Nonpoint Source Pollution Page, www.epa.gov/owow_keep/ NPS.

That was the comment from State Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, early in Tuesdays legislative delegation meeting at the College of Central Florida. A finishing comment by Ocala Mayor Randy Ewers, who is not up for re-election on Oct. 18, started the discussion of redistricting of the Legislature, and that led to Hays short response. Ewers said he supported compact redistricting, where Marion County would not be carved among so many legislators. Nine were on the dais Tuesday. However, Hays pointed out that right now there are four senators up here. If you cut that in half, youll have only two senators advocating for Marion County. State Rep. Dennis Baxley, ROcala and chairman of the delegation, asked, Is more better or is closer to home better? Baxley, who was term-limited out a few years ago but successfully ran again last year, added, There are a lot of pieces to balance in what looks like a simple idea. State Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Citrus County, also spoke on the issue. Weve heard the call, Give us a senator, a bigger piece of the pie. I feel theres going to be a big change in Marion County, a change for the better. Dean, who covers much of Southwest Marion County and has parts of 13 counties in his district, said the redistricting battle will come to a head next year. It will blot out the sun during the next session. Ewers spoke during the governmental part of the meeting, and also brought up economic issues and the situation with water. He asked for development of clean water standards that are scientifically based. He also asked for regulation of Internet cafes. County Commission Chair Stan McClain also spoke on economic issues and jobs, and asked for relief on bonding requirements. He also pointed out that Marion County sends $44 million to the water districts, and receives only $9 million back in local projects. Tax Collector George Albright asked legislators not to repeal the Real ID law. Its a really bad idea, he said, because it requires ID to get things like a drivers license. No tickee, no laundry, was his analysis. School Board member Jackie Porter asked for no new mandates from state officials. With fellow board member Angie Boynton looking on, Porter spoke of how funding has declined for programs such as band, music and FFA. She asked the delegation to carefully review any K-12 legislation that comes across their desks.

Shown are, back row, from left, Al Olsen, Ed Hobbs, Ron Anderson, Jerry Hollnagel, Walt Padgett, Pr. Ed Holloway, Bert Adams; front row, Ken Neal, Terry Couillard, Odd Bjerkmann. In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 20 board meeting, Marion County commissioners adopted a new fee schedule for the countys Building Department, reducing fees for 83 different types of permits. The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1 and affect projects taking place in unincorporated Marion County. The commission is enacting the change after a cost-analysis review to analyze the base amount of funds needed to operate the Building Department. The review results indicated permit fees could be decreased without affecting the departments operational budget. The departments budget is funded through revenues generated from permit fees. Homeowners and contractors will see reductions of more than $95 in some permit types through the new fee schedule. For example, permits for above-ground pools have decreased from $159 to $63, air conditioning unit changeouts have decreased from $87 to $73, and re-roofs for single family or duplex residences have decreased from $159 to $123 and to one fee of $246 for a three to six multi-family unit homes as opposed to $159 per unit. The Building Department adjusted the fees by calculating the costs associated with issuing each type of permit. At a time when the economy is at an all-time low, the County Commission and Marion County Building Department have made a tangible effort to assist citizens and business owners by lowering fees and implementing this new fee schedule, said Stan McClain. County cuts permit fees House gets painted; jewelry, pills taken A local man working for a painting company was arrested and accused of grand theft after he allegedly took jewelry and drugs from a home in which he was painting. Cody V. Hall, 26, who lived in a motel on South Pine, was hired by a couple in Oak Run to paint the interior of the house. He was in the house on Tuesday, Sept. 13, through Friday, Sept. 16. The owner of the paint company said he had been contacted by his foreman who said that Hall placed a plastic container in the foreman's truck. Hall asked the foreman to drive him to a local market, where he converted the coins into cash, about $105 worth. PLEASESEETAKEN PAGE2 How meaningful is food expiration dating?

That was the comment from State Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, early in Tuesdays legislative delegation meeting at the College of Central Florida. A finishing comment by Ocala Mayor Randy Ewers, who is not up for re-election on Oct. 18, started the discussion of redistricting of the Legislature, and that led to Hays short response. Ewers said he supported compact redistricting, where Marion County would not be carved among so many legislators. Nine were on the dais Tuesday. However, Hays pointed out that right now there are four senators up here. If you cut that in half, youll have only two senators advocating for Marion County. State Rep. Dennis Baxley, ROcala and chairman of the delegation, asked, Is more better or is closer to home better? Baxley, who was term-limited out a few years ago but successfully ran again last year, added, There are a lot of pieces to balance in what looks like a simple idea. State Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Citrus County, also spoke on the issue. Weve heard the call, Give us a senator, a bigger piece of the pie. I feel theres going to be a big change in Marion County, a change for the better. Dean, who covers much of Southwest Marion County and has parts of 13 counties in his district, said the redistricting battle will come to a head next year. It will blot out the sun during the next session. Ewers spoke during the governmental part of the meeting, and also brought up economic issues and the situation with water. He asked for development of clean water standards that are scientifically based. He also asked for regulation of Internet cafes. County Commission Chair Stan McClain also spoke on economic issues and jobs, and asked for relief on bonding requirements. He also pointed out that Marion County sends $44 million to the water districts, and receives only $9 million back in local projects. Tax Collector George Albright asked legislators not to repeal the Real ID law. Its a really bad idea, he said, because it requires ID to get things like a drivers license. No tickee, no laundry, was his analysis. School Board member Jackie Porter asked for no new mandates from state officials. With fellow board member Angie Boynton looking on, Porter spoke of how funding has declined for programs such as band, music and FFA. She asked the delegation to carefully review any K-12 legislation that comes across their desks.

In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 20 board meeting, Marion County commissioners adopted a new fee schedule for the countys Building Department, reducing fees for 83 different types of permits. The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1 and affect projects taking place in unincorporated Marion County. The commission is enacting the change after a cost-analysis review to analyze the base amount of funds needed to operate the Building Department. The review results indicated permit fees could be decreased without affecting the departments operational budget. The departments budget is funded through revenues generated from permit fees. Homeowners and contractors will see reductions of more than $95 in some permit types through the new fee schedule. For example, permits for above-ground pools have decreased from $159 to $63, air conditioning unit changeouts have decreased from $87 to $73, and re-roofs for single family or duplex residences have decreased from $159 to $123 and to one fee of $246 for a three to six multi-family unit homes as opposed to $159 per unit. The Building Department adjusted the fees by calculating the costs associated with issuing each type of permit. At a time when the economy is at an all-time low, the County Commission and Marion County Building Department have made a tangible effort to assist citizens and business owners by lowering fees and implementing this new fee schedule, said Stan McClain. County cuts permit fees House gets painted; jewelry, pills takenA local man working for a painting company was arrested and accused of grand theft after he allegedly took jewelry and drugs from a home in which he was painting. Cody V. Hall, 26, who lived in a motel on South Pine, was hired by a couple in Oak Run to paint the interior of the house. He was in the house on Tuesday, Sept. 13, through Friday, Sept. 16. The owner of the paint company said he had been contacted by his foreman who said that Hall placed a plastic container in the foreman's truck. Hall asked the foreman to drive him to a local market, where he converted the coins into cash, about $105 worth. PLEASESEETAKEN, PAGE2 How meaningful is food expiration dating?

The victim provided deputies with a description of the jewelry that was in the container, which was valued at more than $5,700. Later, she discovered that there was a prescription bottle of Oxycodone in the bedroom. The bottle was still there, but 47 pills were missing. Det. Ed Mobley traced Hall to the motel and recovered the plastic container containing several items. However, some of the jewelry was missing. Mobley then checked pawn shops for Hall's roommate, Justin Newsome, 24, and discovered he had allegedly pawned several items of jewelry. Newsome was arrested on Sept. 26 and charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property, one count of engaging in a pawnbroker business without a license and one count of violation of a pawnbroker transaction.The victim responded to both pawn shops and paid $1,525 to get her jewelry back. In other reports, two drivers were accused of DUI. Christopher Calvin Latner, 26, of Rainbow Lakes, was stopped for no seat belt. After the field sobriety test, his breath was tested at .017 and .0188. Joseph D. Smith, 25, of Southwest 39th Avenue, was stopped for unauthorized use of a vehicle. He was charged with DUI and driving while license suspended. TAKENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SUMMERFIELD The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force located and arrested fugitive Charles Eugene Grubbs, 47, of Summerfield, Monday in southeast Marion County. Grubbs was wanted in Marion County on an outstanding arrest warrant for sexual battery on a person under 12 years of age. An investigation by the Marion County Sheriffs Office revealed Grubbs allegedly sexually battered a female child on June 23 while a family member of Grubbs was babysitting the child. The child later told her mother of the incident, prompting the childs mother to notify law enforcement. Through investigation, detectives identified Grubbs as the suspect. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on Aug. 29. The case was submitted to the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force by Task Force members at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. The subsequent fugitive investigation revealed Grubbs, after the sexual battery, had fled from Florida. Task Force members tracked Grubbs to Alabama, Georgia, and eventually back to Marion County where Grubbs was located hiding in an abandoned trailer located on the 14900 block of Southeast 95th Avenue in Summerfield. Task Force members developed information that Grubbs was possibly staying in the abandoned trailer and immediately initiated surveillance. At approximately 2:45 p.m., Task Force members including investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, and the Gainesville Police Department surrounded the trailer and ordered Grubbs to come out at gunpoint. Grubbs initially failed to comply but eventually surrendered to Task Force members without incident. Grubbs was arrested on the outstanding warrant, transported to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, and later booked into the Marion County Jail. Todays arrest was due to the combined efforts of several law enforcement agencies in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll. Despite originally fleeing the state, Grubbs has been caught and will face the charges in Marion County.

Thanks to the planwhich relies on surveillance by environmental groups as well as routine and special clean-up sweeps by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the implementation of a communications network to facilitate the reporting of incidents and quick responsesbeach closures declined from more than 70 miles in 1988 to less than four miles in 1989, with closures remaining at similarly low levels ever since. Of course, medical waste is hardly the only problem facing Americas beaches and coastal waters. According to the non-profit Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the country in 2010 alone. NRDC reports on water quality at U.S. beaches every year in its series of Testing the Waters reports. Pressure from the group has helped spur the EPA to agree to overhaul Clean Water Act regulations pertaining to urban and suburban storm water runoff and update decades-old beach water quality standards by 2012. These improvements should help to keep beaches from the Jersey Shore to the Great Lakes to California, and points in between, clear of debris and safe for swimmers and sunbathers of every stripe. CONTACTS: NRDC Testing the Waters, www.nrdc.org/water/ocean s/ttw; Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, www.epa.gov/osw/nonhaz/i ndustrial/medical/tracking.htm.Dear EarthTalk: What is nonpoint source pollution? How much of a problem is it and how can it be controlled? Devon Corey, New York, NY Unlike pollution that comes from specific industrial factories, sewage treatment plants and other easily discernible points, nonpoint source pollution comes from many diffuse sources, but in the aggregate creates a formidable challenge for municipal, state and federal environmental and water control authorities. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nonpoint source pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground (where it...) picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters and ground waters. Some of the most common pollutants in nonpoint source pollution include excess fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides from agricultural lands and residential areas and oil, grease and toxic chemicals from urban runoff and energy production. Sediment from construction, mining and agricultural sites as well as salts, acids, bacteria and atmospheric deposition from myriad sources also play a role. While its effects vary region to region, nonpoint source pollution is likely the largest threat to our water quality. The U.S. has made tremendous advances in the past 25 years to clean up the aquatic environment by controlling pollution from industries and sewage treatment plants, says the EPA. Unfortunately, we did not do enough to control pollution from diffuse, or nonpoint, sources. The EPA also calls nonpoint source pollution the U.S.s largest source of water quality problems and the main reason 40 percent of our rivers, lakes, and estuaries are not clean enough to meet basic uses such as fishing or swimming. Because it comes from so many sources, regulating nonpoint source pollution is almost impossible, so it really comes down to individuals taking steps to minimize the pollution generated by their actions. The EPA reports that we can all do our part by: keeping litter, pet waste, leaves and debris out of street gutters and storm drains, which usually drain right into nearby water bodies; applying lawn and garden chemicals sparingly; disposing of used oil, antifreeze, paints and other household chemicals properly, that is, at your nearest hazardous household waste drop-off, not in storm drains; cleaning up spilled brake fluid, oil, grease and antifreeze, not hosing them into the street where they will eventually reach local waterways; and controlling soil erosion on your property by planting ground cover and stabilizing erosion-prone areas. Beyond what we can do individually, local, regional and state governments can also help reduce nonpoint source pollution by enacting and enforcing building codes and other rules that can reduce outflows. The voluntary reduction in phosphates in dishwashing detergents in the U.S. last year, for example, was a big step in reducing the nutrient load into our streams and lakes. Some municipalities have gone so far as to mandate erosion and sediment control ordinances requiring the construction of natural buffers in building and landscaping projects to filter out pollutants before they reach local watersheds. If your community doesnt have similar rules in place, encourage your local officials to enact them. CONTACT: EPAs Nonpoint Source Pollution Page, www.epa.gov/owow_keep/ NPS.

Rabies. 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. Worldwide, more than 55,000 people die from rabies every year, according to the World Health Organization. World Rabies Day is Sept. 28, and Marion County Animal Services and the Marion County Health Department want to help you protect your pets, yourself and others. Under Florida law, any pet more than three months old must receive a rabies vaccine and county license. Marion County Animal Services makes it easy to comply with the law and 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.

These generic phrases are included on most food packages, along with varying forms of numerical date stamps. But what do they actually mean? How good is best and how bad is it after its not best anymore? If food product dating lingo like this has made you nearly lose your appetite, read on for an explanation that will hopefully clear this culinary conundrum. Although a dating system exists, its neither standardized nor required by federal regulations. Only infant formula and baby food are federally required to include a use-by date based on nutrient and texture quality and should not be bought or used past that date. States regulate food product dating for all other foods, using either code dating or calendar dating. Code dating is usually found on shelf-stable products such as cans, jars and boxes. These codes represent date and time of manufacture and are used to direct product rotation as well as to facilitate location and collection in a food recall. These dates do not imply the food safety. Calendar dating is found mainly on perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products. Calendar dates (sell-by, best if used by/before and use-by dates) identify the time range of peak quality, but not safety. You may be surprised to learn that though these dates give an idea for general shelf-life and optimum quality, they dont indicate concrete time periods for safety. Much of food safety involves the proper handling and storage of food. With the exception of baby formula and food, food that is expired or past the dates printed on the packages may still be safe to consume for a time. More importantly, food that hasnt expired may be unsafe if it hasnt been stored properly. Remember the importance of time and temperature; perishable food requires temperature control within certain time guidelines to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that can cause foodborne illness. Consider food product dates as useful guidelines for perishable food. But dont forget to take these easy but crucial steps to ensure your food remains safe to eat. Buy food before the expiration date. Promptly refrigerate perishable foods at 40 degrees or below. Ensure food does not stay at room temperature for more than two hours. Freeze perishable foods that will not be used before the expiration date. Frozen foods with expired dates are safe indefinitely as long as the product remains continuously frozen. Adhere to manufacturers instructions on products. Questions? Contact Nancy Gal, Extension Agent IV with UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, at nancy.gal@marioncountyfl.org or 352-671-8400.

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida E Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: I remember that medical waste, washing up in New Jersey, I believe, was a big issue in the late 1980s. Is it still today? Walter Maliszewski, Camden, NJ Medical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Officials scrambled for months to figure out where the waste was coming from, and eventually zeroed in on New York Citys Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island. Sub-optimal systems there were not successfully containing medical waste and other garbage on site, and New Jersey beaches and vacationers and business ownerswere paying the price. Although no one was injured or exposed to disease by the washed up waste, the public was especially alarmed given the HIV/AIDS crisis gripping the nation at that time. New York City was required to pay $1 million for past pollution damages and had to shoulder the cost of clean-up at Jersey Shore beaches as well. The resulting loss of tourism cost business owners throughout the affected region as much as 40 percent of their revenue, with total losses estimated at well over $1 billion. Some New Jersey business owners remain upset that New York wasnt forced to pay them reparations for lost revenue as well. In the wake of the scare, Congress enacted the Medical Waste Tracking Act in 1988, requiring the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a program to better track medical waste from cradleto-grave so that it didnt end up fouling beaches or any other environments. While the program was not renewed when it expired in 1991, it served as a model for how states and municipalities could better track potentially dangerous medical waste while also helping medical facilities institute systems and processes for making sure they knew where their waste was going and that it would be disposed of responsibly. Meanwhile, New York and New Jersey have coordinated on setting up and maintaining their own systems to stem the so-called syringe tides. The cornerstone is a multi-agency Medical waste washing up on beaches EARTH TALK PHOTO COURTESY ISTOCKMedical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Although that problem was addressed for the most part, bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the U.S. last year.

Instead of playing three best net, all four scores were counted. No taking a bad hole off! The threesomes had a blind for the fourth score. On top of that, the greens were aerated during the week, and were slow and inconsistent. However, this only added to the fun of the match. The winners, with a score of 266 were Ron Tennant, Don Aubrey and John Foutty. Second with a 278 were Bob Gray, Ron Topp, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Third with a 281 were Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, Charlie Elder and John Cerlenko. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Sam Sample, Tom Ducz, Don Aubrey, and Paul Colatruglio. The day was hot and muggy, due to the good rains we have been receiving. This will help the greens, as well as fill our aquifer. Who says fall is here?

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 U.S. high school students and their teachers are invited to participate in the Bill of Rights Institutes sixth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution, said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. This context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government. Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty? The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (First Place), $500 (Second Place), and $250 (Third Place). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education, said Ross. Over 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. Complete contest details can be found below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cosmic changes create a potential for disruptions in your travel plans. In the meantime, you might want to consider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counter-productive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Venus offers encouragement to romance-seeking Virgos who are ready to get up, get out and meet more people, one of whom could be that long-sought soul mate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An ongoing problem with a coworker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decision-making this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenTouchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown! Six more points! Thats what the youthful cheerleaders were yelling at the flag football game on Saturday, Sept.17 at Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field. This is the third year for the Upward Flag Football and Cheerleading sport at Joy. 160 people turned out to participate and watch this exciting event. This year the cheerleading sport was favored as there were 32 cheerleaders and 28 players grades K4 through 6th grade. Even though it was a hot, humid, buggy morning, the coaches and the four teams were ready to go on the field. Teams included the Jets and Giants, for the younger players, and the Texans and Cowboys for the older players. Pastor Ed Holloway, organizer of the program, began the day with a prayer and some comments. He remarked that the communication system and the scoreboard would not be a problem, since they did not have any. He told the players not to worry as their scores did not go on any league records anywhere. One small player answered with good. He encouraged them to listen to their coaches, have some fun while supporting the efforts of their teammates. Most of the participating families reside in and around the Ocala area. Most had heard about the program from their friends. Some said that they liked the Upward program at Joy because it is well-organized and all the kids had their uniforms before the games started. One parent said this is a good opportunity for his child to learn, interact with other kids and get some exercise. When the kids were asked what they hope to get out of this experience, Austin said Have fun, and Christian said, Make a touchdown! So if you want to see some enthusiastic young people enjoy the game of flag football and cheering the teams on, come on out to Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field every Saturday at 10 a.m. The program continues through Nov. 12. Joy Lutheran Church is located at 7045 S.W. 83rd Place on S.R. 200 in Ocala. For more information contact 854-4509.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Yesterday was National Coffee Day. I was out celebrating the whole day drinking coffee at restaurants and coffee shops while keeping my ears cocked to find material for todays Pun Alley. When I finally came home really wide-awake my wife asked if I would be able sleep after so much coffee. I said, Its no problem; Ive done this before. I count until three and then I sleep. And that works? she asked. No, sometimes, I count until half past three.Divorce liquidityAfter suffering through years of his wifes awful coffee, a man spit it out and took the coffee maker to his lawyer. Dropping it on the attorneys desk, the man growled, Here they are! Here are what? the startled lawyer asked. The man replied, Grounds for divorce.Lit upJohn stayed up half the night studying for his English Literature exam. He drank coffee almost constantly while attempting to read The Canterbury Tales. Early morning his dad woke up and found John studying, and asked, What have you got there? He answered, Just my cup and Chaucer. Getting ahead A friend was having lunch with his nine-yearold son when the waitress came by to ask if they wanted a drink. Ill have a decapitated coffee, the son said in all seriousness. The waitress smiled and poured him a cup. Not to be outdone, she later returned with the coffeepot and asked, Can I put a head on that for you?Trying timesAt a social reception, a lawyer said to a judge, I see that you are drinking coffee. Why dont you try something more stimulating? Have you ever tried bourbon? No, replied the judge, but I have tried several who have.Coffee breaksShow me an administrative assistant who cant make coffee, and Ill show you an employee with grounds for dismissal. Birds meet for coffee in a nest cafe. I told my family I never want to depend on a machine and fluids to keep me alive. Thats when they took away my computer, my TV remote and the coffee maker. The sociologist joined the regulars at the coffee shop to study the counter culture. Coffee served on The Titanic was Sanka. I was having coffee at the golf course when I saw a large amount of black sediment in the bottom of the cup. So I called the grounds keeper. He got fired at the coffee shop for coming to work in a T-shirt.Regular customerThe waitress was refilling cups of coffee when she stopped at the table next to mine. Regular? she asked her customer. Yes, thank you, said the man. Due to a steady diet of fruit.Black resultsEven though Clifford was extremely awkward he was very sociable and was always invited to high-society parties. At one such party he spilled his entire cup of black coffee over his hostess evening dress that she had just bought in Paris for a lot of money. Tearfully gazing at her ruined gown, flushed with anger, she turned on her clumsy guest and exclaimed, Go, and never darken my Dior again!Pointed commentA husband was throwing knives at his wifes photo while she was out of town. But none of the knives were hitting the photo. When the wife called up she asked, Honey, what are you doing? Her husband replied. Im missing you.OrderA man walked into a coffee shop, and was given a huge mug that he took to his table. When he tried to drink it, he found that instead of coffee, the mug contained a pair of beige cotton trousers. So he went to the shop manager to complain. The manager said, Its exactly what you asked for, No it isnt! said the customer, How can this possibly be what I ordered? Its a cup o chinos, the manager replied.Its the breaksSeveral office people were sitting in the break room having coffee. One of them opened up the newspaper and read everyones horoscope.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Every White House administration likes to have its First Lady dedicated to a significant domestic cause. Mrs. Obama began gradually in 2009 by turning over some expensive grass and planting a victory garden in the White House back yard. At the time it was unclear whether her cause would be nutrition or farming. A concern arose when it was discovered that the first crop from Obama Acres might not be wholesome. In support of environmental awareness, former residents Bill and Hilary Clinton had White House sewage sludge spread as fertilizer on the White House lawn. After careful investigation, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the White House sod a fit-to-grow-food seal of approval. The success of the first year crop motivated Mrs. O to expand the White House garden to 1500 square feet in 2010. Its a big back yard. In March of this year Mrs. O and willing workers from local grammar schools planted a third garden of cabbage, collards, cauliflower, Swiss chard, beets, and other yummy and yukky veggies. The president does not like beets. Washington believes Americans respond best to domestic challenges which are treated with the same seriousness as military conflicts for example the war on poverty and the war on drugs. Mrs. Os challenge is a war on obesity, which she calls a threat to national security. Like all causes, the war on obesity is generating positive and negative comment. A TV personality on the Food Network has suggested making the war on obesity a global human rights issue, just as important as climate change. As a human rights problem obesity can be viewed as a result of deprivation and oppression, in need of significant government intervention and assistance. On the other hand two research fellows at the Democracy Institute authored a put-down titled Diet Nation: Exposing the Obesity Crusade. They call it a manufactured epidemic. An early achievement of the war on obesity has been motivating FDA to finish a project it began in 2003 to redesign the boxes, cans, cartons, and labels for every food product. After eight years, FDA credits its sudden inspiration and production to major advances in nutrition regulations by the Obama administration. The next inspired accomplishment of FDA is menu labeling regulations for restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee chains, and vending machines. We doubt there is anyone with access to news and information who hasnt heard that the primary cause of overweight is more calories consumed than calories burned in other words bad eating habits and lack of physical activity. We who are skeptical about new government initiatives have to wonder whether the White House garden was a planned prelude to the declaration of war on obesity an expansion of the granny state. We wonder how long will it be until the White House asks Congress to create an FDA obesity bureau to manage the war on fat. Maybe the funding can be raised by erecting a vegetable stand on Pennsylvania Avenue. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 30, 2011 Last week, while on vacation, I had given thought to going to my high schools 50th class reunion for the Class of 1961. Where most schools have the ceremony in the fall of what would have been your senior year, Bergen Catholic does it three months after the 50th anniversary of the actual graduation day in June 1961. I dont travel as well as I used to, so I dutifully filled out the questionnaire but didnt make the trip. In going over those 50 years, it made me think of things that have come into our language in all that time. If you had mentioned some of these words back in 1961, and if youre someone who remembers picking up the phone and hearing Number, please, then here are the responses you would have gotten: Whats a microwave oven? Whats a personal computer? Whats a hard drive? What is software? What is the Internet? What does online mean? What is cyberspace? Whats a webcam? Whats a blog? What is cable television? What is satellite television? You mean all programs will be telecast in color some day? Whats a VCR? Whats a DVR? What is Tivo? Whats a remote control for the TV? What does The Eagle has landed mean? Who is Neil Armstrong? Where is Vietnam? What are the Twin Towers? Who is Osama bin Laden? Whats a Chunnel? Actor Ronald Reagan was elected as what? Who is Jimmy Carter? Who is George Bush? Whats a touch tone phone? Why do I call 911 when things go wrong? You have to pay how much to mail a letter? Whats a ZIP code? Whats a shopping mall? Whats a debit card? What is direct deposit? Marion Countys population is what? Whats a gated community? You have to pay how much for a gallon of gas? You have to pump your own gas? Why wont your doctor come to your house when youre sick? Whats an MRI? What is CPR? Who are the Rays and Marlins? You mean they play hockey in Florida? You mean someone will break Roger Maris home run record? What do steroids have to do with playing baseball? Whats a wild card race in sports? And finally, a question Im still not sure how to answer: Whats a tweet?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water, here come the jaws of Congress to make things insecure. Earlier this week, Congress was locked in another battle over spending, this time slowing down disaster relief to millions and, once again, creating the problem of a possible upcoming government shutdown. Finally a settlement was reached, so we wont have to go through all this again until the middle of November if everything stays the same. The people in Congress just dont get it. The people want the lawmakers to work together to solve the problems of the land. That means a little give-and-take on both sides. The Democrats should have gotten the message loud and clear in the election of 2010, when the Republicans took over the House and made gains in the Senate. They should realize that the trend could continue in 2012, possibly carrying all the way through to the presidential election. However, theres another way to look at it. The Republicans may be losing momentum by refusing to compromise, and that could backfire next year. Voters might consider that having one party in charge of all three entities, the House, Senate and presidency, would be an advantage, and they could look upon the GOP as the creators of all the ill will. That could mean the Republicans could lose all those gains from last year, and if that happens, that party will be pretty much dead in our lifetime. So it behooves both sides to get to working together to solve our problems, mainly the financial debacle we find ourselves in. If they dont, no incumbent will be safe in 2012, even the newly elected GOP members. Come to think of it, maybe thats not such a bad idea. Since we dont have a federal law imposing term limits, maybe the voters should implement such a law themselves. A complete turnover in Congress every few years might bring some new fresh ideas to the floor of the House and Senate.

He serenades her with a rendition of In My Merry Oldsmobile which leads them to the church where wedding bells peal. Rose Ann sings her signature song, I Dont Care, and a stellar performance it is, reminiscent of her days on the New York stage. Franco Piscitelli is at his best designing and constructing some fabulous scenery with a special assist from Hal Weber. They have put together scenery that will have audiences in awe. Once again the team of Art and Dianna Schmidt is handling our sound system, a very arduous and technically difficult task, and they do it so well. In training to assist the Schmidts is Bruce MacDuffee who hopefully can spell them in times to come. They have been in the trenches for both theatre groups for a good many years. Sandy Wolfe has taken time off the the stage but has contributed greatly to the cause by taking over the responsibility of searching out and securing the necessary props for the play.

Its not my faultPresident Obama stands there in public and cries about how tough the job is and how his predecessor left him with such a mess. I remember another President in my lifetime who inherited a mess. On January, 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan beame the new President. He never wasted time blaming his predecessor for the problems he inherited. Thats because he was too busy solving them! And, those problems were many and quite serious. He got the economy going again, unemployment and interest rates dropped. And, as a bonus, he won the cold war and left the Soviet empire in ashes. Its sad that America now has a President who limits his own ability by talking too much and solving little to nothing. But, its cheerful to remember we once had a President who solved huge problems by his actions. Remember, children stand around and blame someone else and never take responsibility like this President. President Harry Truman said, The buck stops here! President Theodore Roosevelt said, Speak softly and carry a big stick and President Reagan once said in his inaugural address, and on this issue, there will be no compromise. President Obama says, Its not my fault! Walter A. Lamp OcalaProud to be an AmericanThere was a great commercial on TV recently in which several individuals of obvious different origins declared proudly, I am an American. Anyone born here is guaranteed that distinction by our Constitution. It frustrates me to see how we have become infatuated with being hyphenated Americans! I am not sure when this practice started, but it is a bad practice and one that encourages division and should be stopped. I am of European descent but have never even thought of calling myself a European American. I, too, am an American and Im proud of it! Why is this so important? If one was out to destroy a country, state or even a family, one important thing they would do is to divide us in every way possible. This is because a Nation divided cannot stand, for United We Stand, Divided We Fall! It is now happening, because every where we look, we see division -and this division is leading to a culture collapse in America. Our culture is made up of the experience and practices of our people in matters of business, religion, entertainment, the Arts, customs, education, politics, government, the sciences, family, and the more general social system of relationships. Our culture is what makes us who we are as a people and as a nation. Our founders knew that our view of God and our worship would determine our culture, so they made no secret of who we are and on what we have built this land. This has been carved in wood, etched in stone, or painted on canvas in many of our historic government buildings and memorials throughout our land. Our U.S. Constitution and the individual States Constitutions refer to our being under the guidance of Almighty God. The biggest culprits are our national media and the politicians themselves. Every where you go you see editorials, letters, and broadcasts that promote class warfare, race differences, varying definitions of a family, the definition of marriage, our status as a GOD fearing Judea/Christian Nation and so on. There is a strong movement to remove God from our culture. We will have differences but these differences should not prevent us from pulling together as Americans, each one of us taking responsibility for ourselves and our families. By stopping the class envy, recognizing that jobs come from successful businesses, and honoring the message and truths of God, we will be just fine. After all, We are Americans! God Bless America! Wayne Rackley OcalaGood Sailor Bars(Letter sent to U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns)I've taken the liberty in sending you this for two reasons. The first is to show you that military folks are real people who need -no, make that "earned" -a time to let their hair down after doing in 10 to 12 hours what many of their civilian counter-parts do in 16 or 20 hours. The second reason is a bit more solemn. There's a message here that's very loud and clear between the lines, Congressman Sterns. Look for it....it's there. The message, in part, tells of young lads, and yes, like President Obama said, ALL VOLUNTEERS, who have foregone the fun and fancy, care-free and "what the hell" life so they could be part of the greatest "safety net" the world has ever known. And yet, as it has been since the word deficit crept into our language, the military men and women are the first, or second (the other being a civil servant) to be singled out as to "What can they do without so we can help reduce this deficit?? "What medical benefits can we reduce and yet ensure they receive vital medicines????" "What can they do without that they paid for by serving their country for twenty or more years"???

United Way will offer one monthly volunteer activity no fundraising only volunteering from October 2011 through March 2012. Middle School students will be able to participate in one or all of the six volunteer opportunities. This age can sometimes be challenging to place due to agency regulations, state or federal laws, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. We want our youth to get involved in the issues that face our community everyday and also help them get in the middle of finding solutions. United Ways first middle school volunteer event will be Dust the Dead, on Thursday, Oc. 13. United Way has proudly partnered with the City of Ocala to spruce up one of Ocalas historical cemeteries Greenwood Cemetery located on Northeast 3rd Street. For more information or to get involved, contact Chris Cotter at the United Way at 352-732-9696 or ccotter@uwmc.org. United Way starts middle school volunteer program Alzheimers caregivers can join support groupIf you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups. In addition to peer support, the groups will also invite specialists in the field who can answer questions about Dementia and Alzheimers disease, its causes, how a diagnosis is made and current research, as well as coping mechanisms for caregivers.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Florida and a Greenways volunteer, came to my assistance. Ranger George Risko Jr., Senior Forest Ranger in Marion County, also refused to leave the forest until my dog was recovered. Ranger George found my dog lying on a forest fire trail in the rain. It was getting dark when Ranger George and my dog drove up to the dry camp where I was attempting to keep dry under a picnic table. I am most impressed with the loyalty and concern which my dog and I experienced. I also wish to bring to your attention, Mr. Cornelius Bowne, a volunteer in Ross Prairie State Forest. Mr. Bowne helped to coordinate the search with Ranger George and my friends. I have no doubt that he would have checked on me at the campsite in the early morning had that become necessary. The people of Marion County are truly blessed to have such dedicated staff. To Ranger George and Mr. Cornelius Bowne my friends, my dog and I express a big Thank You. Patricia OMara Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Imust be the only one in this world of ours that truly appreciates quietness. Maybe its old-age stomping its tired old boots, but I think the world has gotten just a little bit noisier. As I got older, I thought my hearing would begin to diminish. I assure you, I am hearing more today than I have ever wanted to hear in all my life. I remember my grandfather and his hearing aid. When there was a family gathering and he was sitting quietly smiling, I came to understand he had turned his hearing aid off. How I envy him now. If only I could turn my hearing aid off. I have tried ignoring my wife, but I can assure you that was not a very good plan. To ignore your wife is to place your health in dire jeopardy. Who wants Alex Trebek breathing down your neck? Ill take American history for $100, Alex. Not long ago I had to take a trip flying the friendly skies. I do not mind flying, but it is not my favorite mode of travel. I would rather stay at home and dream of traveling. On a recent trip, I happened to sit next to an elderly man. We exchanged pleasantries and I settled down with a book hoping to get in a few pages before the trip ended. I had selected a very special book for this Its really quite a chatty world after all OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder trip. My elderly friend settled down with the full intention of rehearsing to me his entire autobiography. For an old gentleman, he had a fantastic memory. I think, but do not quote me here, he recited to me every blessed day of his life. If my recollection is correct, and I know I was brain fuzzy during the whole process, he related one incident at least four different times. Either he is the father of Groundhog Day, or many things in his life happened repeatedly. Last week I went to get my haircut at a local hair salon. I usually go to a particular one near my house and I stopped in for my regular haircut. A few people were ahead of me, so I sat down, picked up a magazine and was going to have a pleasant time waiting my turn. Not paying too much attention to the clientele, there was sitting next to me a very nice little girl. I made one mistake. I looked at her and said, And how are you today, little girl? That was the last sentence I got in for the next hour. She talked so much I thought her tongue would fall out. Then she talked some more and I thought my ears would fall off. How can anybody so young have so much to say? I am 10 times her age and I do not have one 10th as much to say to her, as she had to say to me. Who in the world is teaching these children to talk? Then, in the middle of her chat diarrhea, she looked at me and said, What do you think about that, mister? Not expecting it and not really knowing what she was talking about, I hesitated for a moment. My second mistake. Before I could take a good breath, she began her chat diarrhea as though she was just beginning. She was probably about six years of age with not a very large vocabulary but she knew how to use every word in her vocabulary a multitude of times. Some of her sentences were five minutes long, and at the end, I had no idea what she was saying. The end of her sentence had no apparent relationship to the beginning of her sentence. And the middle, well, who could follow that. Oh, how I pity her English teacher. I date back to the time before cell phones. I know not many people are living today who dates back that far. We have become a generation of cell phones. Before the cell phone era, that was the day, I could sneak off somewhere and nobody could find me. Oh, how I envy those glorious days of yesteryear. Now I pack one of those blasted cell phones wherever I go. No matter where I am, somebody can get a hold of me. When I say somebody, I am actually referring to my wife. As it stands now, I am within dialing distance of her Majesty. Thinking about this I have come up with, maybe not a solution, but at least a little reprieve for those of us who are tired of the noise. I propose a national noise-free-day celebrated every year. For 24 hours, nobody would be permitted to say anything. I know this would hit the politicians rather hard. Everybody knows if a politician does not speak for a 24-hour period the fickle electorate would forget about him or her. And, for a politician not to say anything for a 24-hour period it would cause him or her to die of suffocation. Actually, in either case the American public wins. This brings me to my favorite Bible verse. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalms 46:10 KJV). It is in the stillness that we begin to know God. What would happen if for a brief moment each day we became still before the presence of God?The Rev. James L.

It arrived the other day. Very, innocuous looking white envelope, the kind we call a #10. Plain black block lettering with my name on in: Judith C. Siegal. It was official all right; nobody calls me Judith except doctors who dont know me well. The contents struck a chord with me because it has to do with a landmark age-related rite of passage. Speaking of age, the Torah has much to say on this subject. I am most gratified reading the fifth chapter of Genesis, the one with all the begets. Seems people in those days lived pretty long lives, this without benefit of baby aspirin, Crestor, high blood pressure pills, insulin and calcium supplements. Adams line, as the Torah relates, did pretty good in the longevity category. We have Adam living 930 years (this after begetting Seth and other sons and daughters), Seth living 912 years and Enoch, who was Seths son, living to 905. Other notable men of longevity of Adams line include: Kenan with 910 years, Mahalalel, 895 years and Jared son of Mahalalel with 962 (Must have been all those Subway sandwiches!). Jared begat Enoch when he was 162 (thats no big deal, Methuselah begat Lamech at 187 years!) Enoch lived for 365 and was evidently a righteous person because God took him. (Gen.5: 24) Methuselahs legendary lifespan was 969 years. Lemach, Methuselahs son begat the famous arkbuilder, Noah, when he was 162 years of age and died at 777 years old. Interesting that the Torah only names the male children, though each of the above mentioned people also had other sons and daughters. It would be my guess that the people mentioned were probably the scions of the families and the heirs of the clan. Since in Biblical times, the family name and inheritance came through the firstborn male, it does not surprise me that the Torah records things as such. Of course, the years seem a bit long, if not exaggerated by todays standards. Perhaps people counted time differently or the Biblical writers were trying to fill in the gaps in the Creation story. My other theory is that the people who lived long lives might have been very influential in their day and the number of years could be a metaphor for how much these people contributed to their clan and society at large. Other age-related stories include the birth of Isaac. Sarah, according to the Bible, was beyond childbearing years. As women know, you can easily have a change of life baby. The rabbinical midrash (explanation) on this story also relates how youthful Sarah looked. Carrying a child can do this to a woman. Conversely, when Abraham is about to sacrifice Isaac, Sarah dies, the rabbis say she knew what Abraham was about to do. The Psalmist says (Psalms 90:10) The span of our life is seventy years, or given the strength, eighty Teach us to count our days rightly, that we may obtain a wise heart. This seems to fit in with modern life expectation and not at all like the line of Adam. Still it is written that Moses died at 120 and to this day, Jews wish longevity to someone by blessing them to live to 120.Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE HERE CALL TOM OR SUSIE AT 854-3986 Analyzing the ages of people in the Bible JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE18 I kind of like that one because that would mean I have a lot more years to go! As Jews approach the holiday of Yom Kippur, the whole theme of repentance and human mortality take center stage. At the concluding service for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the actual deathbed confession is made. The holiday is very sobering, reminding us all of the limited time we have here on earth. We are exhorted to mend our ways and seek to follow the path of righteousness. As for the contents of that envelope, I have secreted it away in a very safe place. I would not want to misplace my Medicare card. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Unique opportunity with the Hospice of Marion County Journey Singers.

A ribbon cutting was held recently with members of the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce. The medical office provides care for one yearly fee, with wellness visits included. The facility has a friendly, relaxing atmosphere, with a medical staff that takes the time to know the patients and talk with them.

The doctors can be reached at 352-6711830 or at info@pcmed.us. Personal medical care for one yearly fee Dr. Brady cuts the ribbon at the Chamber of Commerce ceremony last week.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in 16~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Among the Scandinavian invasion of sleuth writers is Norways Jo Nesbo, who brings a thinking mans thriller to mystery lovers. Unlike Steig Larsen, Nesbo does not take his readers along for the ride by sharing clues with them. Rather, he withholds them until it suits his purpose to divulge them. And in Nemesis there are no social issues to concern us or local color to enhance the background. Nesbo is all about plot, plot, plot. And what a plot Nemesis has multilayered and highly complex. The beginning will blow you away. A masked man walks in to an Oslo bank, and with a gun pointed at the cashiers head, orders the manager to fill his knapsack with ATM money on the count of 25 or he will shoot attractive Stine Grette. All is going well as the panicked manager hurries to comply with the demand. The bag filled, the robber pauses instead of fleeing. He spins Stines chair around and whispers something to her: She was focused on her faceless tormentor; her own face went through a slow, gradual transformation as the significance of the words he whispered to her appeared to sink in. Then, after indicating with gloved fingers that the transaction has taken six counts too long, he pulls the trigger and Stine falls backward like a mangled doll. All this is recorded on grainy closed-circuit television. Detective Harry Hole and his assistant Beate Lonn will study the footage for hours, hoping to break the case. Meanwhile, alcoholic Harry spends an innocent evening with a former girlfriend, but awakens with an all too familiar thundering headache and no memory of the last 12 hours. The girl is found dead and Hole becomes the prime suspect in an investigation led by his longtime adversary Tom Wassler. The death toll will mount and the nonstop action will race from the cool streets of Oslo to some steamy villages in Brazil.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in 16~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Among the Scandinavian invasion of sleuth writers is Norways Jo Nesbo, who brings a thinking mans thriller to mystery lovers. Unlike Steig Larsen, Nesbo does not take his readers along for the ride by sharing clues with them. Rather, he withholds them until it suits his purpose to divulge them. And in Nemesis there are no social issues to concern us or local color to enhance the background. Nesbo is all about plot, plot, plot. And what a plot Nemesis has multilayered and highly complex. The beginning will blow you away. A masked man walks in to an Oslo bank, and with a gun pointed at the cashiers head, orders the manager to fill his knapsack with ATM money on the count of 25 or he will shoot attractive Stine Grette. All is going well as the panicked manager hurries to comply with the demand. The bag filled, the robber pauses instead of fleeing. He spins Stines chair around and whispers something to her: She was focused on her faceless tormentor; her own face went through a slow, gradual transformation as the significance of the words he whispered to her appeared to sink in. Then, after indicating with gloved fingers that the transaction has taken six counts too long, he pulls the trigger and Stine falls backward like a mangled doll. All this is recorded on grainy closed-circuit television. Detective Harry Hole and his assistant Beate Lonn will study the footage for hours, hoping to break the case. Meanwhile, alcoholic Harry spends an innocent evening with a former girlfriend, but awakens with an all too familiar thundering headache and no memory of the last 12 hours. The girl is found dead and Hole becomes the prime suspect in an investigation led by his longtime adversary Tom Wassler. The death toll will mount and the nonstop action will race from the cool streets of Oslo to some steamy villages in Brazil. The novel is packed with unusual characters like a jailed gypsy robber not unlike Hannibal Lector, a young woman with a phenomenal memory for faces that only ten people in the world possess, and others. The book is long (500 pages) but that kind of length provides behavioral moments that build on each other. Nemesis is both nail-biting and cerebral.

PLEASESEELANDING, PAGE19 Personal Care Medical Practices opened July 1 at 6035 S.W. 54th St., Suite 200, in Ocala. A ribbon cutting was held recently with members of the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce. The medical office provides care for one yearly fee, with wellness visits included. The facility has a friendly, relaxing atmosphere, with a medical staff that takes the time to know the patients and talk with them. The business was started because there was a feeling that there was a need to bring back the way it used to be in the old days when you visited the doctor.

It arrived the other day. Very, innocuous looking white envelope, the kind we call a #10. Plain black block lettering with my name on in: Judith C. Siegal. It was official all right; nobody calls me Judith except doctors who dont know me well. The contents struck a chord with me because it has to do with a landmark age-related rite of passage. Speaking of age, the Torah has much to say on this subject. I am most gratified reading the fifth chapter of Genesis, the one with all the begets. Seems people in those days lived pretty long lives, this without benefit of baby aspirin, Crestor, high blood pressure pills, insulin and calcium supplements. Adams line, as the Torah relates, did pretty good in the longevity category. We have Adam living 930 years (this after begetting Seth and other sons and daughters), Seth living 912 years and Enoch, who was Seths son, living to 905. Other notable men of longevity of Adams line include: Kenan with 910 years, Mahalalel, 895 years and Jared son of Mahalalel with 962 (Must have been all those Subway sandwiches!). Jared begat Enoch when he was 162 (thats no big deal, Methuselah begat Lamech at 187 years!) Enoch lived for 365 and was evidently a righteous person because God took him. (Gen.5: 24) Methuselahs legendary lifespan was 969 years. Lemach, Methuselahs son begat the famous arkbuilder, Noah, when he was 162 years of age and died at 777 years old. Interesting that the Torah only names the male children, though each of the above mentioned people also had other sons and daughters. It would be my guess that the people mentioned were probably the scions of the families and the heirs of the clan. Since in Biblical times, the family name and inheritance came through the firstborn male, it does not surprise me that the Torah records things as such. Of course, the years seem a bit long, if not exaggerated by todays standards. Perhaps people counted time differently or the Biblical writers were trying to fill in the gaps in the Creation story. My other theory is that the people who lived long lives might have been very influential in their day and the number of years could be a metaphor for how much these people contributed to their clan and society at large. Other age-related stories include the birth of Isaac. Sarah, according to the Bible, was beyond childbearing years. As women know, you can easily have a change of life baby. The rabbinical midrash (explanation) on this story also relates how youthful Sarah looked. Carrying a child can do this to a woman. Conversely, when Abraham is about to sacrifice Isaac, Sarah dies, the rabbis say she knew what Abraham was about to do. The Psalmist says (Psalms 90:10) The span of our life is seventy years, or given the strength, eighty Teach us to count our days rightly, that we may obtain a wise heart. This seems to fit in with modern life expectation and not at all like the line of Adam. Still it is written that Moses died at 120 and to this day, Jews wish longevity to someone by blessing them to live to 120.Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE HERE CALL TOM OR SUSIE AT 854-3986 Analyzing the ages of people in the Bible JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE18 I kind of like that one because that would mean I have a lot more years to go! As Jews approach the holiday of Yom Kippur, the whole theme of repentance and human mortality take center stage. At the concluding service for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the actual deathbed confession is made. The holiday is very sobering, reminding us all of the limited time we have here on earth. We are exhorted to mend our ways and seek to follow the path of righteousness. As for the contents of that envelope, I have secreted it away in a very safe place. I would not want to misplace my Medicare card. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Unique opportunity with the Hospice of Marion County Journey Singers.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Florida and a Greenways volunteer, came to my assistance. Ranger George Risko Jr., Senior Forest Ranger in Marion County, also refused to leave the forest until my dog was recovered. Ranger George found my dog lying on a forest fire trail in the rain. It was getting dark when Ranger George and my dog drove up to the dry camp where I was attempting to keep dry under a picnic table. I am most impressed with the loyalty and concern which my dog and I experienced. I also wish to bring to your attention, Mr. Cornelius Bowne, a volunteer in Ross Prairie State Forest. Mr. Bowne helped to coordinate the search with Ranger George and my friends. I have no doubt that he would have checked on me at the campsite in the early morning had that become necessary. The people of Marion County are truly blessed to have such dedicated staff. To Ranger George and Mr. Cornelius Bowne my friends, my dog and I express a big Thank You. Patricia OMara Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Imust be the only one in this world of ours that truly appreciates quietness. Maybe its old-age stomping its tired old boots, but I think the world has gotten just a little bit noisier. As I got older, I thought my hearing would begin to diminish. I assure you, I am hearing more today than I have ever wanted to hear in all my life. I remember my grandfather and his hearing aid. When there was a family gathering and he was sitting quietly smiling, I came to understand he had turned his hearing aid off. How I envy him now. If only I could turn my hearing aid off. I have tried ignoring my wife, but I can assure you that was not a very good plan. To ignore your wife is to place your health in dire jeopardy. Who wants Alex Trebek breathing down your neck? Ill take American history for $100, Alex. Not long ago I had to take a trip flying the friendly skies. I do not mind flying, but it is not my favorite mode of travel. I would rather stay at home and dream of traveling. On a recent trip, I happened to sit next to an elderly man. We exchanged pleasantries and I settled down with a book hoping to get in a few pages before the trip ended. I had selected a very special book for this Its really quite a chatty world after all OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder trip. My elderly friend settled down with the full intention of rehearsing to me his entire autobiography. For an old gentleman, he had a fantastic memory. I think, but do not quote me here, he recited to me every blessed day of his life. If my recollection is correct, and I know I was brain fuzzy during the whole process, he related one incident at least four different times. Either he is the father of Groundhog Day, or many things in his life happened repeatedly. Last week I went to get my haircut at a local hair salon. I usually go to a particular one near my house and I stopped in for my regular haircut. A few people were ahead of me, so I sat down, picked up a magazine and was going to have a pleasant time waiting my turn. Not paying too much attention to the clientele, there was sitting next to me a very nice little girl. I made one mistake. I looked at her and said, And how are you today, little girl? That was the last sentence I got in for the next hour. She talked so much I thought her tongue would fall out. Then she talked some more and I thought my ears would fall off. How can anybody so young have so much to say? I am 10 times her age and I do not have one 10th as much to say to her, as she had to say to me. Who in the world is teaching these children to talk? Then, in the middle of her chat diarrhea, she looked at me and said, What do you think about that, mister? Not expecting it and not really knowing what she was talking about, I hesitated for a moment. My second mistake. Before I could take a good breath, she began her chat diarrhea as though she was just beginning. She was probably about six years of age with not a very large vocabulary but she knew how to use every word in her vocabulary a multitude of times. Some of her sentences were five minutes long, and at the end, I had no idea what she was saying. The end of her sentence had no apparent relationship to the beginning of her sentence. And the middle, well, who could follow that. Oh, how I pity her English teacher. I date back to the time before cell phones. I know not many people are living today who dates back that far. We have become a generation of cell phones. Before the cell phone era, that was the day, I could sneak off somewhere and nobody could find me. Oh, how I envy those glorious days of yesteryear. Now I pack one of those blasted cell phones wherever I go. No matter where I am, somebody can get a hold of me. When I say somebody, I am actually referring to my wife. As it stands now, I am within dialing distance of her Majesty. Thinking about this I have come up with, maybe not a solution, but at least a little reprieve for those of us who are tired of the noise. I propose a national noise-free-day celebrated every year. For 24 hours, nobody would be permitted to say anything. I know this would hit the politicians rather hard. Everybody knows if a politician does not speak for a 24-hour period the fickle electorate would forget about him or her. And, for a politician not to say anything for a 24-hour period it would cause him or her to die of suffocation. Actually, in either case the American public wins. This brings me to my favorite Bible verse. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalms 46:10 KJV). It is in the stillness that we begin to know God. What would happen if for a brief moment each day we became still before the presence of God?The Rev. James L.

Its not my faultPresident Obama stands there in public and cries about how tough the job is and how his predecessor left him with such a mess. I remember another President in my lifetime who inherited a mess. On January, 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan beame the new President. He never wasted time blaming his predecessor for the problems he inherited. Thats because he was too busy solving them! And, those problems were many and quite serious. He got the economy going again, unemployment and interest rates dropped. And, as a bonus, he won the cold war and left the Soviet empire in ashes. Its sad that America now has a President who limits his own ability by talking too much and solving little to nothing. But, its cheerful to remember we once had a President who solved huge problems by his actions. Remember, children stand around and blame someone else and never take responsibility like this President. President Harry Truman said, The buck stops here! President Theodore Roosevelt said, Speak softly and carry a big stick and President Reagan once said in his inaugural address, and on this issue, there will be no compromise. President Obama says, Its not my fault! Walter A. Lamp OcalaProud to be an AmericanThere was a great commercial on TV recently in which several individuals of obvious different origins declared proudly, I am an American. Anyone born here is guaranteed that distinction by our Constitution. It frustrates me to see how we have become infatuated with being hyphenated Americans! I am not sure when this practice started, but it is a bad practice and one that encourages division and should be stopped. I am of European descent but have never even thought of calling myself a European American. I, too, am an American and Im proud of it! Why is this so important? If one was out to destroy a country, state or even a family, one important thing they would do is to divide us in every way possible. This is because a Nation divided cannot stand, for United We Stand, Divided We Fall! It is now happening, because every where we look, we see division -and this division is leading to a culture collapse in America. Our culture is made up of the experience and practices of our people in matters of business, religion, entertainment, the Arts, customs, education, politics, government, the sciences, family, and the more general social system of relationships. Our culture is what makes us who we are as a people and as a nation. Our founders knew that our view of God and our worship would determine our culture, so they made no secret of who we are and on what we have built this land. This has been carved in wood, etched in stone, or painted on canvas in many of our historic government buildings and memorials throughout our land. Our U.S. Constitution and the individual States Constitutions refer to our being under the guidance of Almighty God. The biggest culprits are our national media and the politicians themselves. Every where you go you see editorials, letters, and broadcasts that promote class warfare, race differences, varying definitions of a family, the definition of marriage, our status as a GOD fearing Judea/Christian Nation and so on. There is a strong movement to remove God from our culture. We will have differences but these differences should not prevent us from pulling together as Americans, each one of us taking responsibility for ourselves and our families. By stopping the class envy, recognizing that jobs come from successful businesses, and honoring the message and truths of God, we will be just fine. After all, We are Americans! God Bless America! Wayne Rackley OcalaGood Sailor Bars(Letter sent to U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns)I've taken the liberty in sending you this for two reasons. The first is to show you that military folks are real people who need -no, make that "earned" -a time to let their hair down after doing in 10 to 12 hours what many of their civilian counter-parts do in 16 or 20 hours. The second reason is a bit more solemn. There's a message here that's very loud and clear between the lines, Congressman Sterns. Look for it....it's there. The message, in part, tells of young lads, and yes, like President Obama said, ALL VOLUNTEERS, who have foregone the fun and fancy, care-free and "what the hell" life so they could be part of the greatest "safety net" the world has ever known. And yet, as it has been since the word deficit crept into our language, the military men and women are the first, or second (the other being a civil servant) to be singled out as to "What can they do without so we can help reduce this deficit?? "What medical benefits can we reduce and yet ensure they receive vital medicines????" "What can they do without that they paid for by serving their country for twenty or more years"??? Many with their lives!!! "What can they do without highly paid administrators, recently appointed Czars, professional entertainers, members of both houses, CEO's, casino owners you get the picture who receive every day and truly believe ''they deserve it!" In closing, dear Congressman, I, and millions like me, and millions like the men in this email, hope you continue your staunch support for the military man and woman, and stand up and be counted as one who never turned your back on many who paid their dues in blood.

United Way will offer one monthly volunteer activity no fundraising only volunteering from October 2011 through March 2012. Middle School students will be able to participate in one or all of the six volunteer opportunities. This age can sometimes be challenging to place due to agency regulations, state or federal laws, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. We want our youth to get involved in the issues that face our community everyday and also help them get in the middle of finding solutions. United Ways first middle school volunteer event will be Dust the Dead, on Thursday, Oc. 13. United Way has proudly partnered with the City of Ocala to spruce up one of Ocalas historical cemeteries Greenwood Cemetery located on Northeast 3rd Street. For more information or to get involved, contact Chris Cotter at the United Way at 352-732-9696 or ccotter@uwmc.org.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Every White House administration likes to have its First Lady dedicated to a significant domestic cause. Mrs. Obama began gradually in 2009 by turning over some expensive grass and planting a victory garden in the White House back yard. At the time it was unclear whether her cause would be nutrition or farming. A concern arose when it was discovered that the first crop from Obama Acres might not be wholesome. In support of environmental awareness, former residents Bill and Hilary Clinton had White House sewage sludge spread as fertilizer on the White House lawn. After careful investigation, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the White House sod a fit-to-grow-food seal of approval. The success of the first year crop motivated Mrs. O to expand the White House garden to 1500 square feet in 2010. Its a big back yard. In March of this year Mrs. O and willing workers from local grammar schools planted a third garden of cabbage, collards, cauliflower, Swiss chard, beets, and other yummy and yukky veggies. The president does not like beets. Washington believes Americans respond best to domestic challenges which are treated with the same seriousness as military conflicts for example the war on poverty and the war on drugs. Mrs. Os challenge is a war on obesity, which she calls a threat to national security. Like all causes, the war on obesity is generating positive and negative comment. A TV personality on the Food Network has suggested making the war on obesity a global human rights issue, just as important as climate change. As a human rights problem obesity can be viewed as a result of deprivation and oppression, in need of significant government intervention and assistance. On the other hand two research fellows at the Democracy Institute authored a put-down titled Diet Nation: Exposing the Obesity Crusade. They call it a manufactured epidemic. An early achievement of the war on obesity has been motivating FDA to finish a project it began in 2003 to redesign the boxes, cans, cartons, and labels for every food product. After eight years, FDA credits its sudden inspiration and production to major advances in nutrition regulations by the Obama administration. The next inspired accomplishment of FDA is menu labeling regulations for restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee chains, and vending machines. We doubt there is anyone with access to news and information who hasnt heard that the primary cause of overweight is more calories consumed than calories burned in other words bad eating habits and lack of physical activity. We who are skeptical about new government initiatives have to wonder whether the White House garden was a planned prelude to the declaration of war on obesity an expansion of the granny state. We wonder how long will it be until the White House asks Congress to create an FDA obesity bureau to manage the war on fat. Maybe the funding can be raised by erecting a vegetable stand on Pennsylvania Avenue. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 30, 2011 Last week, while on vacation, I had given thought to going to my high schools 50th class reunion for the Class of 1961. Where most schools have the ceremony in the fall of what would have been your senior year, Bergen Catholic does it three months after the 50th anniversary of the actual graduation day in June 1961. I dont travel as well as I used to, so I dutifully filled out the questionnaire but didnt make the trip. In going over those 50 years, it made me think of things that have come into our language in all that time. If you had mentioned some of these words back in 1961, and if youre someone who remembers picking up the phone and hearing Number, please, then here are the responses you would have gotten: Whats a microwave oven? Whats a personal computer? Whats a hard drive? What is software? What is the Internet? What does online mean? What is cyberspace? Whats a webcam? Whats a blog? What is cable television? What is satellite television? You mean all programs will be telecast in color some day? Whats a VCR? Whats a DVR? What is Tivo? Whats a remote control for the TV? What does The Eagle has landed mean? Who is Neil Armstrong? Where is Vietnam? What are the Twin Towers? Who is Osama bin Laden? Whats a Chunnel? Actor Ronald Reagan was elected as what? Who is Jimmy Carter? Who is George Bush? Whats a touch tone phone? Why do I call 911 when things go wrong? You have to pay how much to mail a letter? Whats a ZIP code? Whats a shopping mall? Whats a debit card? What is direct deposit? Marion Countys population is what? Whats a gated community? You have to pay how much for a gallon of gas? You have to pump your own gas? Why wont your doctor come to your house when youre sick? Whats an MRI? What is CPR? Who are the Rays and Marlins? You mean they play hockey in Florida? You mean someone will break Roger Maris home run record? What do steroids have to do with playing baseball? Whats a wild card race in sports? And finally, a question Im still not sure how to answer: Whats a tweet?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water, here come the jaws of Congress to make things insecure. Earlier this week, Congress was locked in another battle over spending, this time slowing down disaster relief to millions and, once again, creating the problem of a possible upcoming government shutdown. Finally a settlement was reached, so we wont have to go through all this again until the middle of November if everything stays the same. The people in Congress just dont get it. The people want the lawmakers to work together to solve the problems of the land. That means a little give-and-take on both sides. The Democrats should have gotten the message loud and clear in the election of 2010, when the Republicans took over the House and made gains in the Senate. They should realize that the trend could continue in 2012, possibly carrying all the way through to the presidential election. However, theres another way to look at it. The Republicans may be losing momentum by refusing to compromise, and that could backfire next year. Voters might consider that having one party in charge of all three entities, the House, Senate and presidency, would be an advantage, and they could look upon the GOP as the creators of all the ill will. That could mean the Republicans could lose all those gains from last year, and if that happens, that party will be pretty much dead in our lifetime. So it behooves both sides to get to working together to solve our problems, mainly the financial debacle we find ourselves in. If they dont, no incumbent will be safe in 2012, even the newly elected GOP members. Come to think of it, maybe thats not such a bad idea. Since we dont have a federal law imposing term limits, maybe the voters should implement such a law themselves. A complete turnover in Congress every few years might bring some new fresh ideas to the floor of the House and Senate.

He serenades her with a rendition of In My Merry Oldsmobile which leads them to the church where wedding bells peal. Rose Ann sings her signature song, I Dont Care, and a stellar performance it is, reminiscent of her days on the New York stage. Franco Piscitelli is at his best designing and constructing some fabulous scenery with a special assist from Hal Weber. They have put together scenery that will have audiences in awe. Once again the team of Art and Dianna Schmidt is handling our sound system, a very arduous and technically difficult task, and they do it so well. In training to assist the Schmidts is Bruce MacDuffee who hopefully can spell them in times to come. They have been in the trenches for both theatre groups for a good many years. Sandy Wolfe has taken time off the the stage but has contributed greatly to the cause by taking over the responsibility of searching out and securing the necessary props for the play. The last ticket sale dates in the Orchid Club lobby are on Oct. 4 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Oct. 8 at the Donut Drop In from 8 to 10 a.m. In the Palm Grove lobby tickets will be on sale Oct. 3 from 10 to 11 a.m. Thereafter tickets will be available by phoning Linda Noel at 352-873-9908.

Planting bulbs such as amaryllis, zephyr lily, Aztec lily, calla lily and walking iris should be done in the fall. Caladium bulbs should be dug when yellowing, cleaned, dried and stored. Hopefully, we will have a drop in temperature and can spend time in our gardens.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Yesterday was National Coffee Day. I was out celebrating the whole day drinking coffee at restaurants and coffee shops while keeping my ears cocked to find material for todays Pun Alley. When I finally came home really wide-awake my wife asked if I would be able sleep after so much coffee. I said, Its no problem; Ive done this before. I count until three and then I sleep. And that works? she asked. No, sometimes, I count until half past three.Divorce liquidityAfter suffering through years of his wifes awful coffee, a man spit it out and took the coffee maker to his lawyer. Dropping it on the attorneys desk, the man growled, Here they are! Here are what? the startled lawyer asked. The man replied, Grounds for divorce.Lit upJohn stayed up half the night studying for his English Literature exam. He drank coffee almost constantly while attempting to read The Canterbury Tales. Early morning his dad woke up and found John studying, and asked, What have you got there? He answered, Just my cup and Chaucer. Getting ahead A friend was having lunch with his nine-yearold son when the waitress came by to ask if they wanted a drink. Ill have a decapitated coffee, the son said in all seriousness. The waitress smiled and poured him a cup. Not to be outdone, she later returned with the coffeepot and asked, Can I put a head on that for you?Trying timesAt a social reception, a lawyer said to a judge, I see that you are drinking coffee. Why dont you try something more stimulating? Have you ever tried bourbon? No, replied the judge, but I have tried several who have.Coffee breaksShow me an administrative assistant who cant make coffee, and Ill show you an employee with grounds for dismissal. Birds meet for coffee in a nest cafe. I told my family I never want to depend on a machine and fluids to keep me alive. Thats when they took away my computer, my TV remote and the coffee maker. The sociologist joined the regulars at the coffee shop to study the counter culture. Coffee served on The Titanic was Sanka. I was having coffee at the golf course when I saw a large amount of black sediment in the bottom of the cup. So I called the grounds keeper. He got fired at the coffee shop for coming to work in a T-shirt.Regular customerThe waitress was refilling cups of coffee when she stopped at the table next to mine. Regular? she asked her customer. Yes, thank you, said the man. Due to a steady diet of fruit.Black resultsEven though Clifford was extremely awkward he was very sociable and was always invited to high-society parties. At one such party he spilled his entire cup of black coffee over his hostess evening dress that she had just bought in Paris for a lot of money. Tearfully gazing at her ruined gown, flushed with anger, she turned on her clumsy guest and exclaimed, Go, and never darken my Dior again!Pointed commentA husband was throwing knives at his wifes photo while she was out of town. But none of the knives were hitting the photo. When the wife called up she asked, Honey, what are you doing? Her husband replied. Im missing you.OrderA man walked into a coffee shop, and was given a huge mug that he took to his table. When he tried to drink it, he found that instead of coffee, the mug contained a pair of beige cotton trousers. So he went to the shop manager to complain. The manager said, Its exactly what you asked for, No it isnt! said the customer, How can this possibly be what I ordered? Its a cup o chinos, the manager replied.Its the breaksSeveral office people were sitting in the break room having coffee. One of them opened up the newspaper and read everyones horoscope. When she finished, a colleague asked her about her beliefs regarding horoscopes. Gwen, she said, Do you really believe in astrology? Oh, no, Gwen replied. I dont believe in any of that stuff. Im a Capricorn and were very skeptical.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cosmic changes create a potential for disruptions in your travel plans. In the meantime, you might want to consider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counter-productive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Venus offers encouragement to romance-seeking Virgos who are ready to get up, get out and meet more people, one of whom could be that long-sought soul mate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An ongoing problem with a coworker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decision-making this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel.

BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenTouchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown! Six more points! Thats what the youthful cheerleaders were yelling at the flag football game on Saturday, Sept.17 at Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field. This is the third year for the Upward Flag Football and Cheerleading sport at Joy. 160 people turned out to participate and watch this exciting event. This year the cheerleading sport was favored as there were 32 cheerleaders and 28 players grades K4 through 6th grade. Even though it was a hot, humid, buggy morning, the coaches and the four teams were ready to go on the field. Teams included the Jets and Giants, for the younger players, and the Texans and Cowboys for the older players. Pastor Ed Holloway, organizer of the program, began the day with a prayer and some comments. He remarked that the communication system and the scoreboard would not be a problem, since they did not have any. He told the players not to worry as their scores did not go on any league records anywhere. One small player answered with good. He encouraged them to listen to their coaches, have some fun while supporting the efforts of their teammates. Most of the participating families reside in and around the Ocala area. Most had heard about the program from their friends. Some said that they liked the Upward program at Joy because it is well-organized and all the kids had their uniforms before the games started. One parent said this is a good opportunity for his child to learn, interact with other kids and get some exercise. When the kids were asked what they hope to get out of this experience, Austin said Have fun, and Christian said, Make a touchdown! So if you want to see some enthusiastic young people enjoy the game of flag football and cheering the teams on, come on out to Joy Lutheran Church, Hope Field every Saturday at 10 a.m. The program continues through Nov. 12. Joy Lutheran Church is located at 7045 S.W. 83rd Place on S.R. 200 in Ocala. For more information contact 854-4509.

Salita Timmermeyer was closest to the pin.Royal Oaks Lady NinersThe Lady Niners welcome our newest member, Phyllis Oldfield! On Sept. 15, we had our Fall Opening Scramble followed by a general meeting and lunch. The team of B.J. Lassiter, Charlotte Green and Julie Jackson won after a scorecard playoff due to a tie. The second place team was Elsa Berbig, Sally Crass and Joyce Madill. The team of Phyllis Oldfield, Rae Stover and Cindy Kocher were third. Tee to Green was the game played on Sept. 22, since the greens had just been aerated. Elsa Berbig won, with Phyllis Oldfield second and Salita Timmermeyer third. This was the first week for the Closest to the Pin contest, which was voted on at the general meeting the week prior. The 16th hole was the contest hole, and B.J. Lassiter was the winner. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room.Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on the 23rd of September was a real challenge to the participants. Instead of playing three best net, all four scores were counted. No taking a bad hole off! The threesomes had a blind for the fourth score. On top of that, the greens were aerated during the week, and were slow and inconsistent. However, this only added to the fun of the match. The winners, with a score of 266 were Ron Tennant, Don Aubrey and John Foutty. Second with a 278 were Bob Gray, Ron Topp, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Third with a 281 were Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, Charlie Elder and John Cerlenko. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Sam Sample, Tom Ducz, Don Aubrey, and Paul Colatruglio. The day was hot and muggy, due to the good rains we have been receiving. This will help the greens, as well as fill our aquifer. Who says fall is here?

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 U.S. high school students and their teachers are invited to participate in the Bill of Rights Institutes sixth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution, said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. This context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government. Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty? The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (First Place), $500 (Second Place), and $250 (Third Place). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education, said Ross. Over 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. Complete contest details can be found below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest.

Is it still today? Walter Maliszewski, Camden, NJ Medical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Officials scrambled for months to figure out where the waste was coming from, and eventually zeroed in on New York Citys Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island. Sub-optimal systems there were not successfully containing medical waste and other garbage on site, and New Jersey beaches and vacationers and business ownerswere paying the price. Although no one was injured or exposed to disease by the washed up waste, the public was especially alarmed given the HIV/AIDS crisis gripping the nation at that time. New York City was required to pay $1 million for past pollution damages and had to shoulder the cost of clean-up at Jersey Shore beaches as well. The resulting loss of tourism cost business owners throughout the affected region as much as 40 percent of their revenue, with total losses estimated at well over $1 billion. Some New Jersey business owners remain upset that New York wasnt forced to pay them reparations for lost revenue as well. In the wake of the scare, Congress enacted the Medical Waste Tracking Act in 1988, requiring the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a program to better track medical waste from cradleto-grave so that it didnt end up fouling beaches or any other environments. While the program was not renewed when it expired in 1991, it served as a model for how states and municipalities could better track potentially dangerous medical waste while also helping medical facilities institute systems and processes for making sure they knew where their waste was going and that it would be disposed of responsibly. Meanwhile, New York and New Jersey have coordinated on setting up and maintaining their own systems to stem the so-called syringe tides. The cornerstone is a multi-agency Medical waste washing up on beaches EARTH TALK PHOTO COURTESY ISTOCKMedical waste washing up on New Jersey beaches was a big problem in the late 1980s, closing beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the New Jersey shore. Although that problem was addressed for the most part, bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the U.S. last year.

The FairTax is a bill in Congress (HR 25 in the House/S13 in the Senate) that has been getting a good deal of consideration as we face a gloomy economic future. The FairTax would completely REPLACE the income tax system, boost the economy and create jobs, eliminate the need for the IRS, makes sure everyone pays their fair share and ensures that no citizen or legal resident pays taxes up to the poverty line.

Rabies. 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. Worldwide, more than 55,000 people die from rabies every year, according to the World Health Organization. World Rabies Day is Sept. 28, and Marion County Animal Services and the Marion County Health Department want to help you protect your pets, yourself and others. Under Florida law, any pet more than three months old must receive a rabies vaccine and county license. Marion County Animal Services makes it easy to comply with the law and 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.

These generic phrases are included on most food packages, along with varying forms of numerical date stamps. But what do they actually mean? How good is best and how bad is it after its not best anymore? If food product dating lingo like this has made you nearly lose your appetite, read on for an explanation that will hopefully clear this culinary conundrum. Although a dating system exists, its neither standardized nor required by federal regulations. Only infant formula and baby food are federally required to include a use-by date based on nutrient and texture quality and should not be bought or used past that date. States regulate food product dating for all other foods, using either code dating or calendar dating. Code dating is usually found on shelf-stable products such as cans, jars and boxes. These codes represent date and time of manufacture and are used to direct product rotation as well as to facilitate location and collection in a food recall. These dates do not imply the food safety. Calendar dating is found mainly on perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products. Calendar dates (sell-by, best if used by/before and use-by dates) identify the time range of peak quality, but not safety. You may be surprised to learn that though these dates give an idea for general shelf-life and optimum quality, they dont indicate concrete time periods for safety. Much of food safety involves the proper handling and storage of food. With the exception of baby formula and food, food that is expired or past the dates printed on the packages may still be safe to consume for a time. More importantly, food that hasnt expired may be unsafe if it hasnt been stored properly. Remember the importance of time and temperature; perishable food requires temperature control within certain time guidelines to inhibit the growth of microorganisms that can cause foodborne illness. Consider food product dates as useful guidelines for perishable food. But dont forget to take these easy but crucial steps to ensure your food remains safe to eat. Buy food before the expiration date. Promptly refrigerate perishable foods at 40 degrees or below. Ensure food does not stay at room temperature for more than two hours. Freeze perishable foods that will not be used before the expiration date. Frozen foods with expired dates are safe indefinitely as long as the product remains continuously frozen.

Friday, September 30, 2011 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, September 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com The owner checked with the homeowner and asked the woman whether she had a plastic container, and she said that she went into the bedroom and discovered it was missing. The victim provided deputies with a description of the jewelry that was in the container, which was valued at more than $5,700. Later, she discovered that there was a prescription bottle of Oxycodone in the bedroom. The bottle was still there, but 47 pills were missing. Det. Ed Mobley traced Hall to the motel and recovered the plastic container containing several items. However, some of the jewelry was missing. Mobley then checked pawn shops for Hall's roommate, Justin Newsome, 24, and discovered he had allegedly pawned several items of jewelry. Newsome was arrested on Sept. 26 and charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property, one count of engaging in a pawnbroker business without a license and one count of violation of a pawnbroker transaction.The victim responded to both pawn shops and paid $1,525 to get her jewelry back. In other reports, two drivers were accused of DUI. Christopher Calvin Latner, 26, of Rainbow Lakes, was stopped for no seat belt. After the field sobriety test, his breath was tested at .017 and .0188. Joseph D. Smith, 25, of Southwest 39th Avenue, was stopped for unauthorized use of a vehicle. He was charged with DUI and driving while license suspended. TAKENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SUMMERFIELD The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force located and arrested fugitive Charles Eugene Grubbs, 47, of Summerfield, Monday in southeast Marion County. Grubbs was wanted in Marion County on an outstanding arrest warrant for sexual battery on a person under 12 years of age. An investigation by the Marion County Sheriffs Office revealed Grubbs allegedly sexually battered a female child on June 23 while a family member of Grubbs was babysitting the child. The child later told her mother of the incident, prompting the childs mother to notify law enforcement. Through investigation, detectives identified Grubbs as the suspect. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on Aug. 29. The case was submitted to the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force by Task Force members at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. The subsequent fugitive investigation revealed Grubbs, after the sexual battery, had fled from Florida. Task Force members tracked Grubbs to Alabama, Georgia, and eventually back to Marion County where Grubbs was located hiding in an abandoned trailer located on the 14900 block of Southeast 95th Avenue in Summerfield. Task Force members developed information that Grubbs was possibly staying in the abandoned trailer and immediately initiated surveillance. At approximately 2:45 p.m., Task Force members including investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Alachua County Sheriffs Office, and the Gainesville Police Department surrounded the trailer and ordered Grubbs to come out at gunpoint. Grubbs initially failed to comply but eventually surrendered to Task Force members without incident. Grubbs was arrested on the outstanding warrant, transported to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, and later booked into the Marion County Jail. Todays arrest was due to the combined efforts of several law enforcement agencies in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll. Despite originally fleeing the state, Grubbs has been caught and will face the charges in Marion County.

Thanks to the planwhich relies on surveillance by environmental groups as well as routine and special clean-up sweeps by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the implementation of a communications network to facilitate the reporting of incidents and quick responsesbeach closures declined from more than 70 miles in 1988 to less than four miles in 1989, with closures remaining at similarly low levels ever since. Of course, medical waste is hardly the only problem facing Americas beaches and coastal waters. According to the non-profit Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), bacterial contamination from sewage treatment outflows, contaminated storm water and other sources caused more than 24,000 beach closures or advisories across the country in 2010 alone. NRDC reports on water quality at U.S. beaches every year in its series of Testing the Waters reports. Pressure from the group has helped spur the EPA to agree to overhaul Clean Water Act regulations pertaining to urban and suburban storm water runoff and update decades-old beach water quality standards by 2012. These improvements should help to keep beaches from the Jersey Shore to the Great Lakes to California, and points in between, clear of debris and safe for swimmers and sunbathers of every stripe.

How much of a problem is it and how can it be controlled? Devon Corey, New York, NY Unlike pollution that comes from specific industrial factories, sewage treatment plants and other easily discernible points, nonpoint source pollution comes from many diffuse sources, but in the aggregate creates a formidable challenge for municipal, state and federal environmental and water control authorities. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nonpoint source pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground (where it...) picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters and ground waters. Some of the most common pollutants in nonpoint source pollution include excess fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides from agricultural lands and residential areas and oil, grease and toxic chemicals from urban runoff and energy production. Sediment from construction, mining and agricultural sites as well as salts, acids, bacteria and atmospheric deposition from myriad sources also play a role. While its effects vary region to region, nonpoint source pollution is likely the largest threat to our water quality. The U.S. has made tremendous advances in the past 25 years to clean up the aquatic environment by controlling pollution from industries and sewage treatment plants, says the EPA. Unfortunately, we did not do enough to control pollution from diffuse, or nonpoint, sources. The EPA also calls nonpoint source pollution the U.S.s largest source of water quality problems and the main reason 40 percent of our rivers, lakes, and estuaries are not clean enough to meet basic uses such as fishing or swimming. Because it comes from so many sources, regulating nonpoint source pollution is almost impossible, so it really comes down to individuals taking steps to minimize the pollution generated by their actions. The EPA reports that we can all do our part by: keeping litter, pet waste, leaves and debris out of street gutters and storm drains, which usually drain right into nearby water bodies; applying lawn and garden chemicals sparingly; disposing of used oil, antifreeze, paints and other household chemicals properly, that is, at your nearest hazardous household waste drop-off, not in storm drains; cleaning up spilled brake fluid, oil, grease and antifreeze, not hosing them into the street where they will eventually reach local waterways; and controlling soil erosion on your property by planting ground cover and stabilizing erosion-prone areas. Beyond what we can do individually, local, regional and state governments can also help reduce nonpoint source pollution by enacting and enforcing building codes and other rules that can reduce outflows. The voluntary reduction in phosphates in dishwashing detergents in the U.S. last year, for example, was a big step in reducing the nutrient load into our streams and lakes. Some municipalities have gone so far as to mandate erosion and sediment control ordinances requiring the construction of natural buffers in building and landscaping projects to filter out pollutants before they reach local watersheds. If your community doesnt have similar rules in place, encourage your local officials to enact them. CONTACT: EPAs Nonpoint Source Pollution Page, www.epa.gov/owow_keep/ NPS.

That was the comment from State Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, early in Tuesdays legislative delegation meeting at the College of Central Florida. A finishing comment by Ocala Mayor Randy Ewers, who is not up for re-election on Oct. 18, started the discussion of redistricting of the Legislature, and that led to Hays short response. Ewers said he supported compact redistricting, where Marion County would not be carved among so many legislators. Nine were on the dais Tuesday. However, Hays pointed out that right now there are four senators up here. If you cut that in half, youll have only two senators advocating for Marion County. State Rep. Dennis Baxley, ROcala and chairman of the delegation, asked, Is more better or is closer to home better? Baxley, who was term-limited out a few years ago but successfully ran again last year, added, There are a lot of pieces to balance in what looks like a simple idea. State Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Citrus County, also spoke on the issue. Weve heard the call, Give us a senator, a bigger piece of the pie. I feel theres going to be a big change in Marion County, a change for the better. Dean, who covers much of Southwest Marion County and has parts of 13 counties in his district, said the redistricting battle will come to a head next year. It will blot out the sun during the next session. Ewers spoke during the governmental part of the meeting, and also brought up economic issues and the situation with water. He asked for development of clean water standards that are scientifically based. He also asked for regulation of Internet cafes. County Commission Chair Stan McClain also spoke on economic issues and jobs, and asked for relief on bonding requirements. He also pointed out that Marion County sends $44 million to the water districts, and receives only $9 million back in local projects. Tax Collector George Albright asked legislators not to repeal the Real ID law. Its a really bad idea, he said, because it requires ID to get things like a drivers license. No tickee, no laundry, was his analysis. School Board member Jackie Porter asked for no new mandates from state officials. With fellow board member Angie Boynton looking on, Porter spoke of how funding has declined for programs such as band, music and FFA. She asked the delegation to carefully review any K-12 legislation that comes across their desks.

Shown are, back row, from left, Al Olsen, Ed Hobbs, Ron Anderson, Jerry Hollnagel, Walt Padgett, Pr. Ed Holloway, Bert Adams; front row, Ken Neal, Terry Couillard, Odd Bjerkmann. In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 20 board meeting, Marion County commissioners adopted a new fee schedule for the countys Building Department, reducing fees for 83 different types of permits. The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1 and affect projects taking place in unincorporated Marion County. The commission is enacting the change after a cost-analysis review to analyze the base amount of funds needed to operate the Building Department. The review results indicated permit fees could be decreased without affecting the departments operational budget. The departments budget is funded through revenues generated from permit fees. Homeowners and contractors will see reductions of more than $95 in some permit types through the new fee schedule. For example, permits for above-ground pools have decreased from $159 to $63, air conditioning unit changeouts have decreased from $87 to $73, and re-roofs for single family or duplex residences have decreased from $159 to $123 and to one fee of $246 for a three to six multi-family unit homes as opposed to $159 per unit. The Building Department adjusted the fees by calculating the costs associated with issuing each type of permit. At a time when the economy is at an all-time low, the County Commission and Marion County Building Department have made a tangible effort to assist citizens and business owners by lowering fees and implementing this new fee schedule, said Stan McClain. County cuts permit fees House gets painted; jewelry, pills takenA local man working for a painting company was arrested and accused of grand theft after he allegedly took jewelry and drugs from a home in which he was painting. Cody V. Hall, 26, who lived in a motel on South Pine, was hired by a couple in Oak Run to paint the interior of the house. He was in the house on Tuesday, Sept. 13, through Friday, Sept. 16. The owner of the paint company said he had been contacted by his foreman who said that Hall placed a plastic container in the foreman's truck. Hall asked the foreman to drive him to a local market, where he converted the coins into cash, about $105 worth. PLEASESEETAKEN, PAGE2 How meaningful is food expiration dating?
