Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community last April. Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. From the left, getting ready for the Rotary barbecue, are Bucky Bishop, Ray Sargent, Jared Reddick and Gary Norman.

His last day with Marion County was Sept. 30. During my 50 plus years of managing and supervising employees, Marion County has the finest employees that I have ever had the privilege of working with, Thacker said. The citizens are extremely fortunate to have the benefit of their services. Thacker joined Marion County government in 2004 as the countys bureau chief for public works. During his seven-year tenure, he oversaw the countys airport, MSTU, transportation, solid waste and utility operations, and later the building and growth management departments. Under his leadership, the county updated its emergency operations plans and established safety training programs for all departments. Thacker was also instrumental in coordinating the local public works response to the devastating hurricane season of 2004; his work helped the county save taxpayers $29 million by recovering nearly 100 percent of the local funds expended in hurricane recovery activities, more than any other Florida county, through Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursements. In 2009, County Administrator Dr. Lee Niblock promoted Thacker to assistant county administrator. In his new position, Thacker continued to focus on streamlining department activities as well as improving staff productivity and internal communication. I appreciate Larrys contribution to improving Marion County, Niblock said. During his tenure, he contributed greatly to a more efficient organization and more effective services for our citizens. County Engineer Mounir Bouyounes, P .E., will take over Thackers assistant county administrator duties at no additional taxpayer expense.

Pablo Rivera 29, Felony violation of probation cocaine-possession. A n Ocala woman took down a robbery suspect who tried to give her money to provide him an alibi. The attempted robbery took place on the evening of Oct. 3 near 25th Avenue, when the victim told investigators he was walking away from an ATM and toward his car. The victim said a man later identified as John Ashua Meekin, 25, of Ocala, approached and asked for money. The victim said he didnt have any money and Meekin pulled out a pistol and pointed it at the victim, who then put his car into gear and sped off. The victim pulled away, far enough to watch Meekin take off on a bicycle, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The victim was on the phone with 911 and following Meekin who went down a dead end street. Meekin turned and shot twice at the victim and then Meekin ran into nearby woods. A witness told investigators she was watching the sheriffs office cars going up and down the road, when she was approached by Meekin. Meekin apparently offered the witness one hundred dollars to say that he was with her and the other people nearby, Cochran said. The witness told Meekin no. Meekin then lunged at the witness and she took Meekin to the ground and flagged down a deputy, Cochran said. Meekin was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail with a bond of $50,000. Store burglaryMarion County Sheriffs Office detectives need your help to identify and catch two suspects caught on tape stealing thousands in merchandise and cash.

Slow Cooker Tips To cook food safely, manufacturers and the USDA recommend that the slow cooker be filled between halfand two-thirds full. Ground meats, poultry and sausage must be completely cooked before you place them in the slow cooker. Brown in a skillet over medium heat. Dont open the lid during the cooking process each peek adds an additional 15 to 20 minutes of cooking time. Dairy products tend to break down in a slow cooker, so only add them during the last 15 minutes of cooking. For high altitude cooking, add an additional 30 minutes for each hour of time specified in the recipe.

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. Complete contest details 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.

RIBS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Someone from your past could arrive with welcome news concerning your future. Meanwhile, avoid taking sides in a workplace confrontation until you have more facts to go on. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A decision about a relationship could have longerlasting consequences than you might imagine, so be sure of your facts before you act. A trusted friend can help. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A strained relationship could be restored with more personal contact between the two of you. Letting others act as your go-between only adds to the ongoing estrangement. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New facts could mean taking a new path toward a goal youve been hoping to reach. However, be sure all your questions are answered before you undertake to shift directions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good week for all you fine Felines to turn your attention to some important considerations, such as your health, your job situation and the status of important relationships. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid making a quick decision about a matter that needs more study. Keep your mind open for possibilities, even if they dont seem plausible at least not yet. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might welcome the emphasis on openness in relationships that mark this period. But its a good idea to avoid sharing personal secrets with people you hardly know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) There are still some questions that need to be asked and answered before you can feel confident enough to make a potentially life-changing decision. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Some lingering effects from a now largely resolved workplace confrontation could make things difficult for you. Act on this before it becomes serious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You feel youre finally in control of your own life after months of making compromises and concessions you never felt comfortable with. Congratulations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) No sooner do you decide to pass on one job offer than another suddenly turns up. This one might not have everything youre looking for, but its worth checking out. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Congratulations. With Jupiters strong influence dominating this week, dont be surprised to get some good news about a troubling financial matter. BORN THIS WEEK: You are usually kind and loving. But you can be highly critical of those who dont measure up to your high standards. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe last day of September was a perfect day for golf. The weather was cooler than usual, sunny, and just a hint of a breeze. The greens were in excellent shape, so no excuses were accepted for scores. The game was slightly different than usual two net scores counted on the par 5s, three net scores on the par 4s, and all four net scores counted on the par 3s. The winners with a score of 182 were Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens and Pat Schiavo. Second with a score of 184 were Ron Tennant, Ralph Lavacca, Dick Feltenberger and John Cerlenko. Third with a score of 187 were Al Prachel, Larry Collins, Bob Gildea and Dick Berbig. Closest to the pin on the par 3s were Ralph Lavacca, Hal Loomis, Art Pruneau and Bob Gildea. October is shaping up to be cool and dry, at least for the first part of the month. Enjoy the golf!

The wasted earth and other materials are either put back onto the mountain top in an approximation of their original contours, wreaking havoc on local ecosystems and biodiversity, or dumped into neighboring valleys, polluting lakes and streams and jeopardizing water quality for humans and wildlife. According to the nonprofit Rainforest Action Network (RAN), this dumpingespecially throughout Appalachia where MTR is most prevalentundermines the objectives and requirements of the Clean Water Act. The group adds that some 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried or contaminated in the region. The mining destroys Appalachian communities, the health of coalfield residents and any hope for positive economic growth.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... leading non-profit green group concerned about MTR, the Sierra Club, in publishing a report card reviewing 10 of the worlds largest banks in regard to their financing of MTR coal mining projects. The new 2011 version of Policy and Practice takes a look at the MTR-related financing practices of Bank of America, CitiBank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, GE Capital, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, PNC, UBS and Wells Fargo. What did they find? Since January 2010, the 10 banks reviewed have provided upwards of $2.5 billion in loans and bonds to companies practicing MTR. While some of the banksChase, Wells Fargo, PNC, UBS, and Credit Suisseadopted policies limiting their financing of MTR, few actually pulled funding in place from any such activities upon adopting such policies. Citibank, despite announcing publicly in 2009 that it would limit its involvement in MTR, doubled its investments in the business in 2010. RAN and the Sierra Club are also keeping a close eye on UBS which, soon after stating that it needs to be satisfied that the client is committed to reduce over time its exposure to (MTR), went ahead and acted as a paid adviser on the merger of Massey Energy, which operated the West Virginia mine where 29 men died last year, and Alpha Natural Resources. This merger created the largest single MTR company in the country, now responsible for some 25 percent of coal production from MTR mines. The report card grades each bank based on its current position and practice regarding MTR investments, and calls on the banks to strengthen their policies and cease their financial support for coal companies engaging in MTR. The best practice...is a clear exclusion policy on commercial lending and investment banking services for all coal companies who practice mountaintop removal coal extraction, says RAN. RAN and the Sierra Club hope that by exposing the impact these banks are having on the environment through their financing programs, they can help alert the public and policymakers to the need to outlaw MTR coal mining altogether.

A recent example was the go-round between the House and Senate over additional funding for FEMA the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Democrats in the Senate viewed more money for FEMA as an opportunity to affirm their righteous commitment to unlimited spending and vote gathering. They suggested an additional $7 billion for FEMA. To demonstrate their unwavering commitment to frugality, House Republicans suggested $3.7 billion of additional funding for FEMA, with a clause requiring an offset of $1.6 billion of cuts from green energy spending. Verbal salvos were exchanged between the chambers, the best of which came from the Senate Democrats in a few words of feigned innocence: Weve never had to do it this way before. Bunkum! Theyve transferred funds from other sources to FEMA on several occasions. After weeks of Democratic campaigning and liberal editoriwww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 I t seems that its becoming a regular occurrence to have something happen that makes me feel old. Of course, maybe thats because I am old. But thats another story. This past Sunday, 60 Minutes, the long-running series, said goodbye to one of its most identifiable personalities, as Andy Rooney signed off for the last time as a regular contributor. Of course, the world regular is vital here. Hell probably be back from time to time. At age 92, he said he wasnt retiring. Writers never retire, he said. And thats a key. He considers himself a writer, which he has done most of his adult life, and not a television personality. He was described as a curmudgeon and the nations grouch-in-chief, and admitted he lived up to that. He said he never signs autographs, and wondered why people would want his name on a piece of paper. He also said that he doesnt like being recognized, and told people if they saw him in a restaurant, just let him eat my dinner. He added that he gets a lot of mail, but answers very few of the letters he receives. Rooney first hit the 60 Minutes airwaves in 1978. His opinions, usually produced in the final few minutes of the show, took on all sorts of causes with no sacred cows. In a clip shown on Sundays show, he wondered out loud about why there was so much cotton placed in the top of pill bottles, and he had the props to prove it. He also took a box of cereal, and compared the size of what was inside to the oversized photos on the outside of the box. The show also displayed some of his more serious moments, including the weekend after the Challenger shuttle disaster, and the show after the Oklahoma City bombing, in which he didnt mince words about what he would do to the bombers. For me, he was the highlight of the show. There were many times I tuned in the first two minutes to see what was coming up, and quite often it didnt impress me. But if the announcer said all this and Andy Rooney, I made sure I watched or taped those last few minutes of the show, just to see what he had to say. CBS never figured out that they were alienating people who like this show by not properly scheduling it when the program wouldnt be delayed by football. So how ironic was it that this final goodbye from Andy Rooney started late, because the Dolphins-Chargers game ran over into the time slot. One last time, it was hard to set the DVR to record Andy Rooney because of football. It will be interesting to follow the ratings course of 60 Minutes, to see if the departure of Andy Rooney will have an effect. I know that for me, it clearly will make a difference.

C ongratulations. Even though you may not realize it, youre helping us celebrate a big week throughout our industry. How? By reading a newspaper. This is National Newspaper Week, a yearly event noted by the nations publications as a time to remind people that the best source for local news remains a newspaper. A recent news report indicated that Yahoo is experiencing significant decreases in the time users spend on its sites. The directors of the company were even reported to be considering the sale of parts of the company. The reporter concluded that Yahoo was no longer relevant as many Internet users are not using Yahoo or any of its products. Whether you believe that Yahoo is relevant to you or not, it is interesting to observe such a negative public discussion about a company that just 15 years ago could do no wrong. Many believed that Yahoo had a better future than newspapers. There was the expectation that Yahoo, Microsoft and others would create local online communities where people could find the latest news and information. In case you havent noticed, they werent successful in their attempts to provide local news. In fact, it is likely that any news you find on Yahoo, Google and other sites was probably produced by a newspaper or a newspaper affiliated organization. But that doesnt mean that the way people get their news isnt changing, because it is. Newspapers are still the number one source for local news, although now it is in print AND online. And things will continue to change. We expect that more readers in the future will be reading our stories on their iPad or other tablets and on their smart phones. The next time you attend a local event, look around and you probably wont find a reporter or photographer with a Yahoo, Microsoft or Google press pass. You may not even see people from bigger regional newspapers. But what you will see are representatives from your local newspaper, a newspaper such as ours. But, as a newspaper reader, you probably figured that out already, and it is certainly time to say thank you for reading this newspaper and making us your top source for local news! Breast cancer awareness month T wo of the most dreaded words in modern day health care, especially for women, are heard far too often: breast cancer. This is the month that were all asked to make sure we keep up the awareness and the fight against this dreaded disease. There are various programs and events designed to help with this awareness, and want everyone to take part. Most importantly, we want people to get examined to make sure that if you should come down with this disease, its early enough to get treatment and survive. So dont put off going to the doctor. Get yourself checked. We also praise those who have survived and are acting as an inspiration to others. We hope that by working together, we can minimize the effects of breast cancer.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

SPECIALIZING IN SYSTEM CHANGE-OUTS WE SERVICE ALL BRANDS MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS / COMFORT CLUB COMFORT CLUB DISCOUNTS 24-HOUR EMERGENCY SERVICE BowersAir .com als pleading FEMA needs help, a sudden resolution of the disagreement was discovered in unspent FEMA accounts. Funds would not run out on Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday. They would last through Friday, the last day of the fiscal year, provided another disaster didnt happen on Thursday. FEMA has had a busy year hurricane Irene, tropical storm Lee, wildfires, tornadoes, and some tremors. The total number of assistance declarations for 2011 is not yet complete. FEMA assistance declarations have increased dramatically over the past 15 years 43 under the first President Bush, 89 during the Clinton administration, 130 by the second President Bush, and 108 in the first year of President Obama, a year in which there were no hurricanes or other major disasters. Qualification for a federal assistance means a disaster of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the state or local government. However, the tests applied have been so lowered that some states qualify for assistance if estimated damages are likely to exceed only a million dollars more like a damaged sewer pipe than a flood. Applications for disaster declarations have become an avenue for shifting state obligations onto federal taxpayers. Some states seldom call on FEMA for assistance, while others are regular customers. More money spent on minor occurrences which states could and should handle themselves means less money available when real disasters occur. In the shadows behind the liberalization of what does or does not qualify as a disaster are Congressional and White House politicians who find it difficult to say no to puddle-disasters. Disaster politics is growing another federal welfare agency, which has accumulated its own deficit of several billion dollars owed to state and local governments for real disasters of the past. And thats the rest of the story. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Get Out of Our House Keith Flaugh, a spokesman for GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House) drove from Marco Island to speak to Tea Party Solutions of Ocala about this truly grassroots, non-partisan organization, that has a plan to replace Congress in 2012. Keith is an Army veteran and retired in 2001 after 27 years with IBM. As a free market capitalist, and frustrated with career politicians and the monopoly held by the two political parties, he joined a 9/12 group and a local Tea Party in 2010. GOOOH is a system created by an innovative Dell engineer who has spent his entire life developing complex computer systems that change the way we do things. The system is designed to take advantage of the Internet and social networking to allow the people to choose their own candidate, and not necessarily the ones the two parties offer. The system looks to change three things: 1. Accountability by the candidate. 2. Term limits. 3. The way money is raised and used, to eliminate PACs, special interests, and unions. GOOOH is a process; it requires ordinary citizens to participate, and has the greatest realistic chance ever, to change the system. You must become a GOOOH member and complete six steps in order to participate in the Candidate Selection Sessions. The process involves all 435 Districts in the country, with citizens in each of those districts participating in Candidate Selection Sessions to choose a candidate of the people to run in all the Primaries across the country. The selection will be based on a number of eliminating sessions and a Candidate Questionnaire containing over 100 questions that must be answered, for or against, and then signed to insure accountability. The candidates will be bound to vote in accordance with their answers. The money will be raised by requiring 500,000 participating citizens (in a country of over 300 million) to donate $100 each to participate in the Selection process. We must raise that much money because the Republicans and Democrats will each spend over $500 million on their campaigns. It will also raise sufficient funds to launch a world-class national campaign for all 435 of our candidates. We can do this and we need to start now! You need to go to the website, www.goooh.com, to read a much more comprehensive explanation of this process and to sign up as a member. Reading the information provided will help you understand that the process is not as overwhelming as you may think, and it is accomplishable. It may be our last chance to save our country and have representatives that are truly accountable to their constituents. BTW, be sure to read some of the public comments, including those made by more famous people like Lou Dobbs and Dennis John Terry Ocala RedistribultionI am a Tea Party Patriot. I am for redistribution. This is how it will be handled. 1. Take Barack and Michelles money, along with all their czars assets, and give them to that poor woman who is waiting for that free Obama money. She should be first on this list. 2. Next all of George Soros ill gotten gains should be doled out to any indolent drug addict that wants it. George will be thrilled to give. He is very free with his money. 3. Next, I am absolutely certain Michael Moore, Bill Maher, and that Socialist Hollywood clique will gladly turn over all their worldly goods. This is their issue. Time to pony up, kids. 4. It is time Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Chuck Schumer, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters to bring on all your ill gotten gains, and contribute to the pot. It is your idea, your money should pay for this redistribution. 5. Of course all the Hedge Fund, and derivative money should go into that big distribution pot as well. 6. Defund the UN, and a few other useless government agencies. 7. Money, money, money. Money all over the place. Just get it from the right sources. These Socialists have it in spades. Let them fund redistribution. 8. These kind folks want redistribution, but, they want it to be on the back of the middle class. Please: Go jump in a lake, but leave your money behind. There, now, that should pretty much take care of all those people clamoring for that Free Obama Money. That leaves the rest of us poor tax slaves in the middle, alone. We get to keep our hard earned money. Everybody is happy, and the job is neatly done. Fair and square. We did not even have to go to Buffet or the Gates for a handout. If we come up a few bucks short, certain they will kick in a few dollars. We know Buffet is ready. Perhaps, he might want to tackle our tremendous drug problem with a few spare dollars. An entire generation of Boomer Boobs strung out on drugs. What is that all about? D.I. Larson, Ocala Y our columnist has been the Oak Run blood drive coordinator for many years but she has run out of steam! This very important Oak Run contribution to the community needs someone new to spark renewed life into it. It needs, if you will excuse the pun, new blood. Please, please will someone step forward to fill this vital role? I will help you get a handle on the relatively simple housekeeping requirements such as room requests (which have already been submitted for 2012), etc. I will also be able to help you with publicity, such as the article you are now reading. But we need a new face to interact with Floridas Blood Centers and be the coordinator of the Oak Run drive. The duties are not onerous but enthusiasm is a necessity.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Hospital Board MeetingWell, I had to follow through with my commitment to MRMC and went to the board meeting along with my wife on Sept. 26. I was elated with the outcome. A number of us as citizens spoke and I dont know but I could have done better but the public prevailed and the District Board of Trustees and Directors of Munroe Regional Medical Medical Center voted to keep operation of MRMC as it is, until 2023. My concern was the hospital not go out to bids by public, for-profit hospital corporations. We have one of those in the area now and my wife and I have used it and it was not good. One of my other concerns is the public relations of the hospital. They have a great staff but I feel since MRMC is our hospital, there should be a closer tie to the citizenry of Marion County and its environs. Ive been pushing for 1 1/2 years to get the hospital, through letters to the editor, to use the slogan MRMC, our hospital, and I think I made some headway in this endeavor. Two presentations stood out for me. First, Steve Purvis, CEO of the Munroe Health Care Systems, Inc. gave an outstanding speech. He commented that MRMC is your hospital in his remarks, which ties in with what Ive been talking about. The other was Kulbar Ghumman, who of all the trustees and board members gave the most intelligent speech after Mr. Purvis spoke. Now Mr. Ghumman and I dont always see eye to eye, which we understand, but you have to give credit where credit is due and he really came to the aid of the citizens of Marion County. Other board members spoke but none with the eloquence of these two gentlemen. There were 10 or 12 members of the public who spoke and I was number four. I could not match the presentations by Mr. Purvis or Mr. Ghumman. There were some comments, but not in the meeting, but through other sources, that we have another hospital in the area but they get no public support. Youre darn right they dont, because they are a for-profit hospital and part of Hospital Corporation of America. Man you dont want to even get involved with for-profit hospitals. Thats a nightmare. As a Medicare/Blue Cross auditor here in Florida, I uncovered a $750,000 fraud at an adjoining county hospital and because they had gone public, I had to testify before the Securities and Exchange Commission and that I can tell you is real hell. So why dont more of you folks out there write and push for MRMC our hospital because it is ours. It is one of the leading hospitals in the state and we need to support in any way we can. Bill Ford, Oak Run Former Hospital Medicare fraud auditor, Vice President of Medicare B for Wisconsin Medical Service Vive President of St. Louis Blue Shield for Internal Audit, to name a fewFood inspectorsAt one time the government of the United States was concerned that suppliers of food might be more concerned with profit than your health. They had inspectors visit facilities to test for unsafe bacteria. Republicans were successful in cutting excessive government spending. There are not enough inspectors to safeguard our health. We have one terrible report after another. On your computer List of foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States. The next one is coming. Alan Gold Ocala LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I have read of people who testified to the fact that they have had an out-of-body experience. After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have so developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-Z-Boy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baabaa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out of cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-of-cash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out of cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out of cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out of cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out of arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out of cash. Being out of cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would come up with a little bit of cash on its own. But no, it leaves everything to me. My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about seven miles out of town when I ran out of gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out of luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being out of cash or being out of luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you Im having an out-of-cash experience are simply out of luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE11 Visit our website at www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds M any people enjoy watching the changing seasons, and in many parts of the country we find ourselves at that time of the year when the shifting from one season to another seems most enjoyable. In many parts of the country, the lush green foliage gradually fades to an autumn rainbow of yellow-orangered-brown. Cool air brings light jackets out of closets. Pumpkins and decorative corn begin to appear on porches and doorsteps. But, seasons are not the only things that change. When it comes to some changes, we at Social Security need to know about them. If you receive Social Security benefits, there are certain things that we need to know about you in order to continue paying your benefits. Here is a reminder of some of the most important reporting responsibilities for people who receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Your address. Even if you receive your payments by direct deposit or debit card (as most people do), we still need a good mailing address so we can get in touch with you when we need to. You can inform us of a change of address, as well as telephone number, at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your direct deposit information. If your payments go to your financial institution for direct deposit, you need to notify us of any changes. If you change your account information without letting us know, your payment could go to the wrong place. You can change your deposit information at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your work, if disabled. If you receive disability benefits, we need to know about any work you do. If you start work, stop work, or have any change in your work, hours, or pay, we need to know. Your living arrangements, if you receive SSI. People who receive SSI are paid, in part, based on financial need. Payments may change based on your living arrangements. Because of that, we need to know how many people are in your household and how the expenses are shared. There are other things we need to know about, such as if youre institutionalized, if youre no longer able to handle your finances, or if youve been convicted of a crime.

The Chabad Jewish Center will host a full Yom Kippur Services schedule. Our services will be warm, friendly and traditional," according to Yossi Hecht, the director of the center. The services will take place in the warm and welcoming environment at the Jewish Center, at 3500 S.W. 34th Ave. Circle (off SR 200). Unlike many congregations, membership is not required to join. All are welcome, free of charge, regardless of background or affiliation. At the Chabad Jewish Center we understand the need for a meaningful service for every Jew regardless of his or her upbringing or financial wherewithal, explained Rabbi Yossi Hecht. The services will be userfriendly manner making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the seasoned and the unversed. The services will be in Hebrew and follow traditional customs interspersed with modern Jewish tunes and English readings. The Chabd Jewish Center is a branch of the Lubavitch/Chabad movement, an international Chassidic organization under the leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory. With over 3500 centers and establishments around the globe, it is by far the largest network of Jewish religious and social services in the world. Yom Kippur is the day when God forgives all of the Jewish peoples sins, both as individuals and as communities. By the same token, Jews around the world will spend the day in prayer--atoning for their sins, thanking God for his forgiveness and focusing on self-improvement for the year to come. Because of the days importance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink, or do work. Yizkor adds to the days solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year.

I n the days following the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11, it became clear that there was a devastating loss of life, especially among the New York City firefighters. News reports concentrated on the statistics the how and the why. Playwright Anne Nelson has chosen to concentrate on the who and has created an intimate and loving portrait of two people the Captain of Ladder Company 60 and a writer affected by the tragedy and how they cope with moving ahead without The Guys. This heartfelt drama will be performed live, on stage at Ocala Civic Theatre now through 16. Based on the personal experience of the playwright, The Guys tells the story of Joan, an editor and writer, and Nick, a FDNY captain who lost eight men from his company on 9/11. The families of the firefighters are preparing for memorial services and have asked Nick to speak. Eight men. Its overwhelming. A friend calls Joan to ask if she can help Nick write the eulogies. Over one long, Saturday afternoon, Nick talks to Joan about his men and she crafts the moving tribute to each that Nick will deliver. Both characters are moved by the action two people who, under normal circumstances, would never meet. The fire captain knows he needs the expertise of this woman as he faces one of the most difficult challenges of his career and the writer needs to do something, anything, to respond to the disaster. For her, words are the only way she can help. The result is a moving theatre experience that articulates the emotions and longings that many have faced after September 11. The Guys was originally produced Off-Broadway at The Flea Theater, located seven blocks from Ground Zero. It starred Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray. In 2002, Weaver starred in the film adaptation with Anthony LaPaglia as the fire captain. The Ocala Civic Theatre production features Marcy Butler as Joan and John LaPaille as Nick. Both actors have extensive experience performing for local audiences. SuSu Sparkman is directing. The Guys will be onstage at Ocala Civic Theatre through Oct. 16. Tickets are currently on sale at the Theatres box office, by telephone at 352236-2274, and online at www.ocalacivictheatre.co m. (A service charge applies to online purchases.) Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for full-time students. Active duty and retired firefighters and policemen may attend any performance of The Guys for half-price with proof of employment. A special performance is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. A part of the proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Marion County Public Assistance Trust, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical responders, full-time civilian employees and their families in Ocala and Marion County who are injured or killed in the line of duty. Several performances will be followed by a free talk-back with the cast and director and local public safety organizations. For a complete list of talk-back topics, please contact the Ocala Civic Theatre box office. The Guys is beautifully written play will stir your heart. Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com T heres nothing dazzling about a government conspiracy, a subject already done to death, except that in The Sixth Man Baldacci provides a chilly twist in the character of Edgar Roy, a savant whose photographic mind cannot forget anything hes ever seen or heard. Consequently, he can foresee with uncanny accuracy what may come next. Roy is Peter Buntings cash cow for one of Americas largest intelligence groups. With Roy predicting future events with some certainty, Buntings competition is virtually wiped out. Then, incredibly, Roy is accused of murder when six bodies are discovered in his barn. When the novel opens, he is incarcerated in an impregnable fortress in rural Maine and is not uttering a single word to anyone. The loss of Roys insights to national security is both disturbing and incalculable: There are still plenty of analysts out there doing what they do. But Buntings person was tasked with seeing the big picture, connecting the dots. Thats always been lacking across the intelligence spectrum. Roys defense attorney, Ted Bergin, needs all the help he can get. Enter Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two dedicated P .I.s ready to tackle the challenge. But before their first meeting with Bergin, his body is found in his car, the drivers window rolled down, suggesting he knew his assailant. Thereafter the narrative unfolds in a straight linear fashion with bodies turning up at regular intervals and the detective duo ducking shots around every corner by thuggish pursuers. Theres little in the way of surprises here with the exception of a rogue Department of Homeland Security, headed by blond, attractive Ellen Foster who could gallop the range from iron maiden to feminine flirt with ease. Worse yet, she has the presidents ear. The true stunner in this novel comes at the end. I, for one, did not see this shocker coming. Ending takes reader by surprise B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington THE SIXTH MAN By David Baldacci C hristopher Columbus may have been the greatest politician of all time. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. While there he decimated the well being of the majority of the population. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone elses money. Todays politicians are trying to outdo him. Nevertheless, on Monday we celebrate Columbus Day. Some believe that when Columbus returned to Spain, he told Queen Isabella that he had reached India. Actually, documents written by Queen Isabellas official scribe were recently uncovered revealing what he said. His first words were, Ill bet Im the first man who ever got nineteen hundred miles on a galleon. Not so hot The teacher asked her fifth-grade class, How was Columbus treated when he returned from his third voyage? One student said, Lots of people met him at the pier, and they all had a great time. Sternly, the teacher said, You didnt read the assignment. The student brought the textbook up to the teachers desk and showed her where it read, Columbus received a cool reception when he returned from his third voyage. Carrying a tuneHaving spent a large part of Spains treasury building Columbuss three ships, Queen Isabella was adamant that the expedition be successful so she spared no expense in providing for the comfort of the crews. Wine, food, spices, and other essentials were to be packed in abundance and singers assigned for entertainment on the long journey. Just before the launch, the Queen asked her Chief of Foreign Affairs if there was anything she could have forgotten. No, he assured her. They have lots of food for the journey? Yes, my Queen. And wine? Yes, Your Majesty. How about entertainment? Oh Yes, Your Highness, just as you ordered, sixteen per vessel. Thats four quartets to the galleon. Bits and pieces On Columbus Day, postal workers get the day off because this adventurer is an inspiration to them. His journey also took years to reach a destination. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. I was surprised to see my psychiatrist in the audience of the Grammy awards, and even more surprised when his name was read as the winner for best new music genre. Its called, Shrink Rap. We all know that Columbus set sail from Europe looking for a sea route to India and ended up in America. Today, ironically, if you make a call from Europe to a company in America, you get to India. I went to the butchers the other day and I bet him $50 that he couldnt reach the meat off the top shelf. He said, No, the steaks are too high. A lady wrote to an advice column in a newspaper: I have been engaged to a man for some time, but just before the wedding, I found he has a wooden leg. Do you think I should break it off? Big birdIn the Appalachian Mountain backwoods there just isnt anyone hang-gliding. But Zeke saw a magazine article and decided to save up to get a hangglider. After taking it to the mountain peak near his valley home he ran to the edge and took off into the wind. Meanwhile, his Maw and Paw were sittin on the porch swing when Maw spotted the biggest bird she had ever seen. Look at the size of that bird, Paw! she exclaimed. Paw stood up, Git my gun, Maw. Maw ran into the house and brought out his shotgun. He took careful aim and fired three times. The monster-size bird continued to sail silently over the treetops. I think ya missed him, Paw, she said. Yeah, he replied, but at least he let go of Zeke! All about nothing A man passed a small courtyard and heard voices murmuring. He went in and saw an altar with a large zero in the middle and a banner that read NIL. White-robed people were kneeling before the altar chanting hymns to The Great Nullity and The Blessed Emptiness. The man turned to a white-robed observer beside him and asked, Is Nothing Sacred? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

College of Central Florida, Health Services Medical Scenario Role Player The Emergency Medical Services Program at the College of Central Florida trains over 200 EMT and Paramedic students each year. We would like volunteers who would be willing to play the part of the patient in typical 911 emergency medical scenarios. Having real people play the part of the patient allows our students to be exposed to high stakes patient care experiences without compromising patient safety. Training for our students involves the use of actors, sound effects, costumes, props and mock injuries in combination with human patient simulators in carefully scripted scenarios. Some of the scenarios could be disturbing for those without a medical background. While we welcome any who wish to participate, we do so with a word of caution about the nature of the subject matter. Volunteers may be asked to wear costumes or have makeup applied to simulate an injury. A volunteer orientation will be given to each participant interested which will include a tour of our EMS facility and a more in-depth description of your role as a volunteer with our program. For additional information contact Carolyn Reyes at 352-237-2111 ext. 1747.

Nasty lightning strike That was one nasty lightning strike a few weeks ago. It knocked out many TVs etc. It hit my computer (which is an old one but still good). I was all set to buy a new one but stopped at ABBA computer store and they fixed it in about a half hour. Very reliable and reasonable. Thank you Dane and Anthony.Thanks againThanks again to all the well-wishers during my recent health problems. It is very much appreciated.

CLIFFORD GRIEF Marion County Fire RescueMaggie, a 4-year-old Labrador retriever who is Marion County Fire Rescues furriest and most adorable volunteer, learned how to safely escape a house fire by staying low to the ground, and now shes helping firefighters demonstrate the technique during Marion County Fire Rescues Fire Prevention Month 2011. Throughout October, Maggie will teach students across Marion County to be just like her when trying to escape from a burning home, an emergency in which proper planning and swift action can prevent a tragedy. MCFR firefighters will visit each public elementary school in Marion County this month during its Fire Prevention Month 2011 campaign. The overarching message of the campaign is simple: Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! Get Down During a fire, smoke will rise, making it difficult to breathe if occupants stand up and try to walk out of the house. Therefore, children are encouraged to get low to the ground, where the air is easier to breathe, and crawl to safety. Get Out Every second counts in a fire emergency, so children should calmly exit the home as quickly as possible without stopping to call 911 or look for family members or pets. Get on the Phone Once outside the home, children should proceed to a predetermined meeting area a safe distance from the home so parents and firefighters can accurately account for everyone in the home. Then, 911 should be called from either a neighbors home or by using a cellular phone safely outside the home. During each fire prevention month campaign, MCFR tests students to gauge their understanding of the fire-safety messages being presented. Test data from last year showed that for the first time since MCFR began its month-long program in 2007, most students understood that they should exit the burning building before calling 911. But the data also revealed that many students werent aware that they should then head to a family meeting place outside the home, so having children pick a meeting place with their families will be a point of emphasis this month. MCFR will reach more than 20,000 students during this months campaign and deliver potentially life-saving information through: Classroom curriculum based on Sunshine State Standards that reiterates fire safety messages while reinforcing reading, writing and math skills Hands-on presentations with firefighters. Maggie also will attend presentations at selected schools. A video public-service announcement featuring Maggie and based on the Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! theme A countywide poster contest to get students to illustrate what theyve learned One message firefighters will share with students is the importance of creating a fire escape plan with their families. An escape plan should include these basics: Create a map or drawing of the home and identify two exits from each room (usually a door and a window). Plan around the abilities of each member of the household by ensuring that each occupant can access each exit and that all doors and windows are unobstructed and operational. For two-story homes, have escape ladders ready to use at a moments notice and ensure children know how to place and use the ladders. Mark where smoke alarms are located throughout the home on the map; ensure batteries are changed twice a year and the alarms are tested monthly. Identify a safe meeting place outside so everyone knows where to meet during an emergency. The meeting place should be a safe distance from the home such as a mailbox, a large tree or a neighbors home. Call 911 from that safe meeting place. Never go back inside a burning building for any reason. Teach children to escape immediately and not to stop for pets or toys. Leave that to adults or firefighters. Practice the fire escape plan with your family at least twice a year, teaching children to crawl low (under the smoke) to safety. Additional fire safety resources, including an escape grid to help you get started on your escape plan and a home safety checklist, are available on MCFRs Web site: www.marioncountyfl.org/FireRescue/Fire_default.aspx by clicking the Fire Prevention Month link.

CLIFFORD GRIEF Marion County Fire RescueMaggie, a 4-year-old Labrador retriever who is Marion County Fire Rescues furriest and most adorable volunteer, learned how to safely escape a house fire by staying low to the ground, and now shes helping firefighters demonstrate the technique during Marion County Fire Rescues Fire Prevention Month 2011. Throughout October, Maggie will teach students across Marion County to be just like her when trying to escape from a burning home, an emergency in which proper planning and swift action can prevent a tragedy. MCFR firefighters will visit each public elementary school in Marion County this month during its Fire Prevention Month 2011 campaign. The overarching message of the campaign is simple: Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! Get Down During a fire, smoke will rise, making it difficult to breathe if occupants stand up and try to walk out of the house. Therefore, children are encouraged to get low to the ground, where the air is easier to breathe, and crawl to safety. Get Out Every second counts in a fire emergency, so children should calmly exit the home as quickly as possible without stopping to call 911 or look for family members or pets. Get on the Phone Once outside the home, children should proceed to a predetermined meeting area a safe distance from the home so parents and firefighters can accurately account for everyone in the home. Then, 911 should be called from either a neighbors home or by using a cellular phone safely outside the home. During each fire prevention month campaign, MCFR tests students to gauge their understanding of the fire-safety messages being presented. Test data from last year showed that for the first time since MCFR began its month-long program in 2007, most students understood that they should exit the burning building before calling 911. But the data also revealed that many students werent aware that they should then head to a family meeting place outside the home, so having children pick a meeting place with their families will be a point of emphasis this month. MCFR will reach more than 20,000 students during this months campaign and deliver potentially life-saving information through: Classroom curriculum based on Sunshine State Standards that reiterates fire safety messages while reinforcing reading, writing and math skills Hands-on presentations with firefighters. Maggie also will attend presentations at selected schools. A video public-service announcement featuring Maggie and based on the Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! theme A countywide poster contest to get students to illustrate what theyve learned One message firefighters will share with students is the importance of creating a fire escape plan with their families. An escape plan should include these basics: Create a map or drawing of the home and identify two exits from each room (usually a door and a window). Plan around the abilities of each member of the household by ensuring that each occupant can access each exit and that all doors and windows are unobstructed and operational. For two-story homes, have escape ladders ready to use at a moments notice and ensure children know how to place and use the ladders. Mark where smoke alarms are located throughout the home on the map; ensure batteries are changed twice a year and the alarms are tested monthly. Identify a safe meeting place outside so everyone knows where to meet during an emergency. The meeting place should be a safe distance from the home such as a mailbox, a large tree or a neighbors home. Call 911 from that safe meeting place. Never go back inside a burning building for any reason. Teach children to escape immediately and not to stop for pets or toys. Leave that to adults or firefighters. Practice the fire escape plan with your family at least twice a year, teaching children to crawl low (under the smoke) to safety. Additional fire safety resources, including an escape grid to help you get started on your escape plan and a home safety checklist, are available on MCFRs Web site: www.marioncountyfl.org/FireRescue/Fire_default.aspx by clicking the Fire Prevention Month link.

College of Central Florida, Health Services Medical Scenario Role Player The Emergency Medical Services Program at the College of Central Florida trains over 200 EMT and Paramedic students each year. We would like volunteers who would be willing to play the part of the patient in typical 911 emergency medical scenarios. Having real people play the part of the patient allows our students to be exposed to high stakes patient care experiences without compromising patient safety. Training for our students involves the use of actors, sound effects, costumes, props and mock injuries in combination with human patient simulators in carefully scripted scenarios. Some of the scenarios could be disturbing for those without a medical background. While we welcome any who wish to participate, we do so with a word of caution about the nature of the subject matter. Volunteers may be asked to wear costumes or have makeup applied to simulate an injury. A volunteer orientation will be given to each participant interested which will include a tour of our EMS facility and a more in-depth description of your role as a volunteer with our program. For additional information contact Carolyn Reyes at 352-237-2111 ext. 1747.

I n the days following the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11, it became clear that there was a devastating loss of life, especially among the New York City firefighters. News reports concentrated on the statistics the how and the why. Playwright Anne Nelson has chosen to concentrate on the who and has created an intimate and loving portrait of two people the Captain of Ladder Company 60 and a writer affected by the tragedy and how they cope with moving ahead without The Guys. This heartfelt drama will be performed live, on stage at Ocala Civic Theatre now through 16. Based on the personal experience of the playwright, The Guys tells the story of Joan, an editor and writer, and Nick, a FDNY captain who lost eight men from his company on 9/11. The families of the firefighters are preparing for memorial services and have asked Nick to speak. Eight men. Its overwhelming. A friend calls Joan to ask if she can help Nick write the eulogies. Over one long, Saturday afternoon, Nick talks to Joan about his men and she crafts the moving tribute to each that Nick will deliver. Both characters are moved by the action two people who, under normal circumstances, would never meet. The fire captain knows he needs the expertise of this woman as he faces one of the most difficult challenges of his career and the writer needs to do something, anything, to respond to the disaster. For her, words are the only way she can help. The result is a moving theatre experience that articulates the emotions and longings that many have faced after September 11. The Guys was originally produced Off-Broadway at The Flea Theater, located seven blocks from Ground Zero. It starred Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray. In 2002, Weaver starred in the film adaptation with Anthony LaPaglia as the fire captain. The Ocala Civic Theatre production features Marcy Butler as Joan and John LaPaille as Nick. Both actors have extensive experience performing for local audiences. SuSu Sparkman is directing. The Guys will be onstage at Ocala Civic Theatre through Oct. 16. Tickets are currently on sale at the Theatres box office, by telephone at 352236-2274, and online at www.ocalacivictheatre.co m. (A service charge applies to online purchases.) Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for full-time students. Active duty and retired firefighters and policemen may attend any performance of The Guys for half-price with proof of employment. A special performance is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. A part of the proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Marion County Public Assistance Trust, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical responders, full-time civilian employees and their families in Ocala and Marion County who are injured or killed in the line of duty. Several performances will be followed by a free talk-back with the cast and director and local public safety organizations. For a complete list of talk-back topics, please contact the Ocala Civic Theatre box office. The Guys is beautifully written play will stir your heart. Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com T heres nothing dazzling about a government conspiracy, a subject already done to death, except that in The Sixth Man Baldacci provides a chilly twist in the character of Edgar Roy, a savant whose photographic mind cannot forget anything hes ever seen or heard. Consequently, he can foresee with uncanny accuracy what may come next. Roy is Peter Buntings cash cow for one of Americas largest intelligence groups. With Roy predicting future events with some certainty, Buntings competition is virtually wiped out. Then, incredibly, Roy is accused of murder when six bodies are discovered in his barn. When the novel opens, he is incarcerated in an impregnable fortress in rural Maine and is not uttering a single word to anyone. The loss of Roys insights to national security is both disturbing and incalculable: There are still plenty of analysts out there doing what they do. But Buntings person was tasked with seeing the big picture, connecting the dots. Thats always been lacking across the intelligence spectrum. Roys defense attorney, Ted Bergin, needs all the help he can get. Enter Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two dedicated P .I.s ready to tackle the challenge. But before their first meeting with Bergin, his body is found in his car, the drivers window rolled down, suggesting he knew his assailant. Thereafter the narrative unfolds in a straight linear fashion with bodies turning up at regular intervals and the detective duo ducking shots around every corner by thuggish pursuers. Theres little in the way of surprises here with the exception of a rogue Department of Homeland Security, headed by blond, attractive Ellen Foster who could gallop the range from iron maiden to feminine flirt with ease. Worse yet, she has the presidents ear. The true stunner in this novel comes at the end. I, for one, did not see this shocker coming. Ending takes reader by surprise B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington THE SIXTH MAN By David Baldacci C hristopher Columbus may have been the greatest politician of all time. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. While there he decimated the well being of the majority of the population. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone elses money. Todays politicians are trying to outdo him. Nevertheless, on Monday we celebrate Columbus Day. Some believe that when Columbus returned to Spain, he told Queen Isabella that he had reached India. Actually, documents written by Queen Isabellas official scribe were recently uncovered revealing what he said. His first words were, Ill bet Im the first man who ever got nineteen hundred miles on a galleon. Not so hot The teacher asked her fifth-grade class, How was Columbus treated when he returned from his third voyage? One student said, Lots of people met him at the pier, and they all had a great time. Sternly, the teacher said, You didnt read the assignment. The student brought the textbook up to the teachers desk and showed her where it read, Columbus received a cool reception when he returned from his third voyage. Carrying a tuneHaving spent a large part of Spains treasury building Columbuss three ships, Queen Isabella was adamant that the expedition be successful so she spared no expense in providing for the comfort of the crews. Wine, food, spices, and other essentials were to be packed in abundance and singers assigned for entertainment on the long journey. Just before the launch, the Queen asked her Chief of Foreign Affairs if there was anything she could have forgotten. No, he assured her. They have lots of food for the journey? Yes, my Queen. And wine? Yes, Your Majesty. How about entertainment? Oh Yes, Your Highness, just as you ordered, sixteen per vessel. Thats four quartets to the galleon. Bits and pieces On Columbus Day, postal workers get the day off because this adventurer is an inspiration to them. His journey also took years to reach a destination. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. I was surprised to see my psychiatrist in the audience of the Grammy awards, and even more surprised when his name was read as the winner for best new music genre. Its called, Shrink Rap. We all know that Columbus set sail from Europe looking for a sea route to India and ended up in America. Today, ironically, if you make a call from Europe to a company in America, you get to India. I went to the butchers the other day and I bet him $50 that he couldnt reach the meat off the top shelf. He said, No, the steaks are too high. A lady wrote to an advice column in a newspaper: I have been engaged to a man for some time, but just before the wedding, I found he has a wooden leg. Do you think I should break it off? Big birdIn the Appalachian Mountain backwoods there just isnt anyone hang-gliding. But Zeke saw a magazine article and decided to save up to get a hangglider. After taking it to the mountain peak near his valley home he ran to the edge and took off into the wind. Meanwhile, his Maw and Paw were sittin on the porch swing when Maw spotted the biggest bird she had ever seen. Look at the size of that bird, Paw! she exclaimed. Paw stood up, Git my gun, Maw. Maw ran into the house and brought out his shotgun. He took careful aim and fired three times. The monster-size bird continued to sail silently over the treetops. I think ya missed him, Paw, she said. Yeah, he replied, but at least he let go of Zeke! All about nothing A man passed a small courtyard and heard voices murmuring. He went in and saw an altar with a large zero in the middle and a banner that read NIL. White-robed people were kneeling before the altar chanting hymns to The Great Nullity and The Blessed Emptiness. The man turned to a white-robed observer beside him and asked, Is Nothing Sacred? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Yom Kippur is the day when God forgives all of the Jewish peoples sins, both as individuals and as communities. By the same token, Jews around the world will spend the day in prayer--atoning for their sins, thanking God for his forgiveness and focusing on self-improvement for the year to come. Because of the days importance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink, or do work. Yizkor adds to the days solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Hospital Board MeetingWell, I had to follow through with my commitment to MRMC and went to the board meeting along with my wife on Sept. 26. I was elated with the outcome. A number of us as citizens spoke and I dont know but I could have done better but the public prevailed and the District Board of Trustees and Directors of Munroe Regional Medical Medical Center voted to keep operation of MRMC as it is, until 2023. My concern was the hospital not go out to bids by public, for-profit hospital corporations. We have one of those in the area now and my wife and I have used it and it was not good. One of my other concerns is the public relations of the hospital. They have a great staff but I feel since MRMC is our hospital, there should be a closer tie to the citizenry of Marion County and its environs. Ive been pushing for 1 1/2 years to get the hospital, through letters to the editor, to use the slogan MRMC, our hospital, and I think I made some headway in this endeavor. Two presentations stood out for me. First, Steve Purvis, CEO of the Munroe Health Care Systems, Inc. gave an outstanding speech. He commented that MRMC is your hospital in his remarks, which ties in with what Ive been talking about. The other was Kulbar Ghumman, who of all the trustees and board members gave the most intelligent speech after Mr. Purvis spoke. Now Mr. Ghumman and I dont always see eye to eye, which we understand, but you have to give credit where credit is due and he really came to the aid of the citizens of Marion County. Other board members spoke but none with the eloquence of these two gentlemen. There were 10 or 12 members of the public who spoke and I was number four. I could not match the presentations by Mr. Purvis or Mr. Ghumman. There were some comments, but not in the meeting, but through other sources, that we have another hospital in the area but they get no public support. Youre darn right they dont, because they are a for-profit hospital and part of Hospital Corporation of America. Man you dont want to even get involved with for-profit hospitals. Thats a nightmare. As a Medicare/Blue Cross auditor here in Florida, I uncovered a $750,000 fraud at an adjoining county hospital and because they had gone public, I had to testify before the Securities and Exchange Commission and that I can tell you is real hell. So why dont more of you folks out there write and push for MRMC our hospital because it is ours. It is one of the leading hospitals in the state and we need to support in any way we can. Bill Ford, Oak Run Former Hospital Medicare fraud auditor, Vice President of Medicare B for Wisconsin Medical Service Vive President of St. Louis Blue Shield for Internal Audit, to name a fewFood inspectorsAt one time the government of the United States was concerned that suppliers of food might be more concerned with profit than your health. They had inspectors visit facilities to test for unsafe bacteria. Republicans were successful in cutting excessive government spending. There are not enough inspectors to safeguard our health. We have one terrible report after another. On your computer List of foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States. The next one is coming. Alan Gold Ocala LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I have read of people who testified to the fact that they have had an out-of-body experience. After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have so developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-Z-Boy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baabaa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out of cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-of-cash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out of cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out of cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out of cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out of arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out of cash. Being out of cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would come up with a little bit of cash on its own. But no, it leaves everything to me. My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about seven miles out of town when I ran out of gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out of luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being out of cash or being out of luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you Im having an out-of-cash experience are simply out of luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV).

SPECIALIZING IN SYSTEM CHANGE-OUTS WE SERVICE ALL BRANDS MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS / COMFORT CLUB COMFORT CLUB DISCOUNTS 24-HOUR EMERGENCY SERVICE BowersAir .com als pleading FEMA needs help, a sudden resolution of the disagreement was discovered in unspent FEMA accounts. Funds would not run out on Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday. They would last through Friday, the last day of the fiscal year, provided another disaster didnt happen on Thursday. FEMA has had a busy year hurricane Irene, tropical storm Lee, wildfires, tornadoes, and some tremors. The total number of assistance declarations for 2011 is not yet complete. FEMA assistance declarations have increased dramatically over the past 15 years 43 under the first President Bush, 89 during the Clinton administration, 130 by the second President Bush, and 108 in the first year of President Obama, a year in which there were no hurricanes or other major disasters. Qualification for a federal assistance means a disaster of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the state or local government. However, the tests applied have been so lowered that some states qualify for assistance if estimated damages are likely to exceed only a million dollars more like a damaged sewer pipe than a flood. Applications for disaster declarations have become an avenue for shifting state obligations onto federal taxpayers. Some states seldom call on FEMA for assistance, while others are regular customers. More money spent on minor occurrences which states could and should handle themselves means less money available when real disasters occur. In the shadows behind the liberalization of what does or does not qualify as a disaster are Congressional and White House politicians who find it difficult to say no to puddle-disasters. Disaster politics is growing another federal welfare agency, which has accumulated its own deficit of several billion dollars owed to state and local governments for real disasters of the past. And thats the rest of the story. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Get Out of Our House Keith Flaugh, a spokesman for GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House) drove from Marco Island to speak to Tea Party Solutions of Ocala about this truly grassroots, non-partisan organization, that has a plan to replace Congress in 2012. Keith is an Army veteran and retired in 2001 after 27 years with IBM. As a free market capitalist, and frustrated with career politicians and the monopoly held by the two political parties, he joined a 9/12 group and a local Tea Party in 2010. GOOOH is a system created by an innovative Dell engineer who has spent his entire life developing complex computer systems that change the way we do things. The system is designed to take advantage of the Internet and social networking to allow the people to choose their own candidate, and not necessarily the ones the two parties offer. The system looks to change three things: 1. Accountability by the candidate. 2. Term limits. 3. The way money is raised and used, to eliminate PACs, special interests, and unions. GOOOH is a process; it requires ordinary citizens to participate, and has the greatest realistic chance ever, to change the system. You must become a GOOOH member and complete six steps in order to participate in the Candidate Selection Sessions. The process involves all 435 Districts in the country, with citizens in each of those districts participating in Candidate Selection Sessions to choose a candidate of the people to run in all the Primaries across the country. The selection will be based on a number of eliminating sessions and a Candidate Questionnaire containing over 100 questions that must be answered, for or against, and then signed to insure accountability. The candidates will be bound to vote in accordance with their answers. The money will be raised by requiring 500,000 participating citizens (in a country of over 300 million) to donate $100 each to participate in the Selection process. We must raise that much money because the Republicans and Democrats will each spend over $500 million on their campaigns. It will also raise sufficient funds to launch a world-class national campaign for all 435 of our candidates. We can do this and we need to start now! You need to go to the website, www.goooh.com, to read a much more comprehensive explanation of this process and to sign up as a member. Reading the information provided will help you understand that the process is not as overwhelming as you may think, and it is accomplishable. It may be our last chance to save our country and have representatives that are truly accountable to their constituents. BTW, be sure to read some of the public comments, including those made by more famous people like Lou Dobbs and Dennis John Terry Ocala RedistribultionI am a Tea Party Patriot. I am for redistribution. This is how it will be handled. 1. Take Barack and Michelles money, along with all their czars assets, and give them to that poor woman who is waiting for that free Obama money. She should be first on this list. 2. Next all of George Soros ill gotten gains should be doled out to any indolent drug addict that wants it. George will be thrilled to give. He is very free with his money. 3. Next, I am absolutely certain Michael Moore, Bill Maher, and that Socialist Hollywood clique will gladly turn over all their worldly goods. This is their issue. Time to pony up, kids. 4. It is time Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Chuck Schumer, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters to bring on all your ill gotten gains, and contribute to the pot. It is your idea, your money should pay for this redistribution. 5. Of course all the Hedge Fund, and derivative money should go into that big distribution pot as well. 6. Defund the UN, and a few other useless government agencies. 7. Money, money, money. Money all over the place. Just get it from the right sources. These Socialists have it in spades. Let them fund redistribution. 8. These kind folks want redistribution, but, they want it to be on the back of the middle class. Please: Go jump in a lake, but leave your money behind. There, now, that should pretty much take care of all those people clamoring for that Free Obama Money. That leaves the rest of us poor tax slaves in the middle, alone. We get to keep our hard earned money. Everybody is happy, and the job is neatly done. Fair and square. We did not even have to go to Buffet or the Gates for a handout. If we come up a few bucks short, certain they will kick in a few dollars. We know Buffet is ready. Perhaps, he might want to tackle our tremendous drug problem with a few spare dollars. An entire generation of Boomer Boobs strung out on drugs. What is that all about? D.I. Larson, Ocala Y our columnist has been the Oak Run blood drive coordinator for many years but she has run out of steam!

A recent example was the go-round between the House and Senate over additional funding for FEMA the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Democrats in the Senate viewed more money for FEMA as an opportunity to affirm their righteous commitment to unlimited spending and vote gathering. They suggested an additional $7 billion for FEMA. To demonstrate their unwavering commitment to frugality, House Republicans suggested $3.7 billion of additional funding for FEMA, with a clause requiring an offset of $1.6 billion of cuts from green energy spending. Verbal salvos were exchanged between the chambers, the best of which came from the Senate Democrats in a few words of feigned innocence: Weve never had to do it this way before. Bunkum! Theyve transferred funds from other sources to FEMA on several occasions. After weeks of Democratic campaigning and liberal editoriwww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 I t seems that its becoming a regular occurrence to have something happen that makes me feel old. Of course, maybe thats because I am old. But thats another story. This past Sunday, 60 Minutes, the long-running series, said goodbye to one of its most identifiable personalities, as Andy Rooney signed off for the last time as a regular contributor. Of course, the world regular is vital here. Hell probably be back from time to time. At age 92, he said he wasnt retiring. Writers never retire, he said. And thats a key. He considers himself a writer, which he has done most of his adult life, and not a television personality. He was described as a curmudgeon and the nations grouch-in-chief, and admitted he lived up to that. He said he never signs autographs, and wondered why people would want his name on a piece of paper. He also said that he doesnt like being recognized, and told people if they saw him in a restaurant, just let him eat my dinner. He added that he gets a lot of mail, but answers very few of the letters he receives. Rooney first hit the 60 Minutes airwaves in 1978. His opinions, usually produced in the final few minutes of the show, took on all sorts of causes with no sacred cows. In a clip shown on Sundays show, he wondered out loud about why there was so much cotton placed in the top of pill bottles, and he had the props to prove it. He also took a box of cereal, and compared the size of what was inside to the oversized photos on the outside of the box. The show also displayed some of his more serious moments, including the weekend after the Challenger shuttle disaster, and the show after the Oklahoma City bombing, in which he didnt mince words about what he would do to the bombers. For me, he was the highlight of the show. There were many times I tuned in the first two minutes to see what was coming up, and quite often it didnt impress me. But if the announcer said all this and Andy Rooney, I made sure I watched or taped those last few minutes of the show, just to see what he had to say. CBS never figured out that they were alienating people who like this show by not properly scheduling it when the program wouldnt be delayed by football. So how ironic was it that this final goodbye from Andy Rooney started late, because the Dolphins-Chargers game ran over into the time slot. One last time, it was hard to set the DVR to record Andy Rooney because of football. It will be interesting to follow the ratings course of 60 Minutes, to see if the departure of Andy Rooney will have an effect. I know that for me, it clearly will make a difference.

C ongratulations. Even though you may not realize it, youre helping us celebrate a big week throughout our industry. How? By reading a newspaper. This is National Newspaper Week, a yearly event noted by the nations publications as a time to remind people that the best source for local news remains a newspaper. A recent news report indicated that Yahoo is experiencing significant decreases in the time users spend on its sites. The directors of the company were even reported to be considering the sale of parts of the company. The reporter concluded that Yahoo was no longer relevant as many Internet users are not using Yahoo or any of its products. Whether you believe that Yahoo is relevant to you or not, it is interesting to observe such a negative public discussion about a company that just 15 years ago could do no wrong. Many believed that Yahoo had a better future than newspapers. There was the expectation that Yahoo, Microsoft and others would create local online communities where people could find the latest news and information. In case you havent noticed, they werent successful in their attempts to provide local news. In fact, it is likely that any news you find on Yahoo, Google and other sites was probably produced by a newspaper or a newspaper affiliated organization. But that doesnt mean that the way people get their news isnt changing, because it is. Newspapers are still the number one source for local news, although now it is in print AND online. And things will continue to change. We expect that more readers in the future will be reading our stories on their iPad or other tablets and on their smart phones. The next time you attend a local event, look around and you probably wont find a reporter or photographer with a Yahoo, Microsoft or Google press pass. You may not even see people from bigger regional newspapers. But what you will see are representatives from your local newspaper, a newspaper such as ours. But, as a newspaper reader, you probably figured that out already, and it is certainly time to say thank you for reading this newspaper and making us your top source for local news! Breast cancer awareness month T wo of the most dreaded words in modern day health care, especially for women, are heard far too often: breast cancer. This is the month that were all asked to make sure we keep up the awareness and the fight against this dreaded disease. There are various programs and events designed to help with this awareness, and want everyone to take part. Most importantly, we want people to get examined to make sure that if you should come down with this disease, its early enough to get treatment and survive. So dont put off going to the doctor. Get yourself checked. We also praise those who have survived and are acting as an inspiration to others. We hope that by working together, we can minimize the effects of breast cancer.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... leading non-profit green group concerned about MTR, the Sierra Club, in publishing a report card reviewing 10 of the worlds largest banks in regard to their financing of MTR coal mining projects. The new 2011 version of Policy and Practice takes a look at the MTR-related financing practices of Bank of America, CitiBank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, GE Capital, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, PNC, UBS and Wells Fargo. What did they find? Since January 2010, the 10 banks reviewed have provided upwards of $2.5 billion in loans and bonds to companies practicing MTR. While some of the banksChase, Wells Fargo, PNC, UBS, and Credit Suisseadopted policies limiting their financing of MTR, few actually pulled funding in place from any such activities upon adopting such policies. Citibank, despite announcing publicly in 2009 that it would limit its involvement in MTR, doubled its investments in the business in 2010. RAN and the Sierra Club are also keeping a close eye on UBS which, soon after stating that it needs to be satisfied that the client is committed to reduce over time its exposure to (MTR), went ahead and acted as a paid adviser on the merger of Massey Energy, which operated the West Virginia mine where 29 men died last year, and Alpha Natural Resources. This merger created the largest single MTR company in the country, now responsible for some 25 percent of coal production from MTR mines. The report card grades each bank based on its current position and practice regarding MTR investments, and calls on the banks to strengthen their policies and cease their financial support for coal companies engaging in MTR. The best practice...is a clear exclusion policy on commercial lending and investment banking services for all coal companies who practice mountaintop removal coal extraction, says RAN. RAN and the Sierra Club hope that by exposing the impact these banks are having on the environment through their financing programs, they can help alert the public and policymakers to the need to outlaw MTR coal mining altogether.

EARTHCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 PHOTO BY ILOVEMOUNTAINS.ORGMany major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are blown up to expose the recoverable coal. Despite some banks stated intent to limit such financing, a Sierra Club/Rainforest Action Network report card indicates that few are yet doing what they say. 000977H Join us this Sunday at Faith Presbyterian Church, as we worship our great God together!

The greens were in excellent shape, so no excuses were accepted for scores. The game was slightly different than usual two net scores counted on the par 5s, three net scores on the par 4s, and all four net scores counted on the par 3s. The winners with a score of 182 were Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens and Pat Schiavo. Second with a score of 184 were Ron Tennant, Ralph Lavacca, Dick Feltenberger and John Cerlenko. Third with a score of 187 were Al Prachel, Larry Collins, Bob Gildea and Dick Berbig. Closest to the pin on the par 3s were Ralph Lavacca, Hal Loomis, Art Pruneau and Bob Gildea. October is shaping up to be cool and dry, at least for the first part of the month. Enjoy the golf!

S et h J er g ens N ew Y ork NY Yes its true that many major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are removed by explosives to expose thin seams of recoverable coal. The wasted earth and other materials are either put back onto the mountain top in an approximation of their original contours, wreaking havoc on local ecosystems and biodiversity, or dumped into neighboring valleys, polluting lakes and streams and jeopardizing water quality for humans and wildlife. According to the nonprofit Rainforest Action Network (RAN), this dumpingespecially throughout Appalachia where MTR is most prevalentundermines the objectives and requirements of the Clean Water Act. The group adds that some 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried or contaminated in the region. The mining destroys Appalachian communities, the health of coalfield residents and any hope for positive economic growth.

RIBS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Someone from your past could arrive with welcome news concerning your future. Meanwhile, avoid taking sides in a workplace confrontation until you have more facts to go on. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A decision about a relationship could have longerlasting consequences than you might imagine, so be sure of your facts before you act. A trusted friend can help. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A strained relationship could be restored with more personal contact between the two of you. Letting others act as your go-between only adds to the ongoing estrangement. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New facts could mean taking a new path toward a goal youve been hoping to reach. However, be sure all your questions are answered before you undertake to shift directions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good week for all you fine Felines to turn your attention to some important considerations, such as your health, your job situation and the status of important relationships. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid making a quick decision about a matter that needs more study. Keep your mind open for possibilities, even if they dont seem plausible at least not yet. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might welcome the emphasis on openness in relationships that mark this period. But its a good idea to avoid sharing personal secrets with people you hardly know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) There are still some questions that need to be asked and answered before you can feel confident enough to make a potentially life-changing decision. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Some lingering effects from a now largely resolved workplace confrontation could make things difficult for you. Act on this before it becomes serious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You feel youre finally in control of your own life after months of making compromises and concessions you never felt comfortable with. Congratulations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) No sooner do you decide to pass on one job offer than another suddenly turns up. This one might not have everything youre looking for, but its worth checking out. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Congratulations. With Jupiters strong influence dominating this week, dont be surprised to get some good news about a troubling financial matter. BORN THIS WEEK: You are usually kind and loving. But you can be highly critical of those who dont measure up to your high standards. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

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. Complete contest details 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.

Pablo Rivera 29, Felony violation of probation cocaine-possession. A n Ocala woman took down a robbery suspect who tried to give her money to provide him an alibi. The attempted robbery took place on the evening of Oct. 3 near 25th Avenue, when the victim told investigators he was walking away from an ATM and toward his car. The victim said a man later identified as John Ashua Meekin, 25, of Ocala, approached and asked for money. The victim said he didnt have any money and Meekin pulled out a pistol and pointed it at the victim, who then put his car into gear and sped off. The victim pulled away, far enough to watch Meekin take off on a bicycle, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The victim was on the phone with 911 and following Meekin who went down a dead end street. Meekin turned and shot twice at the victim and then Meekin ran into nearby woods. A witness told investigators she was watching the sheriffs office cars going up and down the road, when she was approached by Meekin. Meekin apparently offered the witness one hundred dollars to say that he was with her and the other people nearby, Cochran said. The witness told Meekin no.

His last day with Marion County was Sept. 30. During my 50 plus years of managing and supervising employees, Marion County has the finest employees that I have ever had the privilege of working with, Thacker said. The citizens are extremely fortunate to have the benefit of their services. Thacker joined Marion County government in 2004 as the countys bureau chief for public works. During his seven-year tenure, he oversaw the countys airport, MSTU, transportation, solid waste and utility operations, and later the building and growth management departments. Under his leadership, the county updated its emergency operations plans and established safety training programs for all departments. Thacker was also instrumental in coordinating the local public works response to the devastating hurricane season of 2004; his work helped the county save taxpayers $29 million by recovering nearly 100 percent of the local funds expended in hurricane recovery activities, more than any other Florida county, through Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursements. In 2009, County Administrator Dr. Lee Niblock promoted Thacker to assistant county administrator. In his new position, Thacker continued to focus on streamlining department activities as well as improving staff productivity and internal communication. I appreciate Larrys contribution to improving Marion County, Niblock said. During his tenure, he contributed greatly to a more efficient organization and more effective services for our citizens.

The attempted robbery took place on the evening of Oct. 3 near 25th Avenue, when the victim told investigators he was walking away from an ATM and toward his car. The victim said a man later identified as John Ashua Meekin, 25, of Ocala, approached and asked for money. The victim said he didnt have any money and Meekin pulled out a pistol and pointed it at the victim, who then put his car into gear and sped off. The victim pulled away, far enough to watch Meekin take off on a bicycle, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The victim was on the phone with 911 and following Meekin who went down a dead end street. Meekin turned and shot twice at the victim and then Meekin ran into nearby woods. A witness told investigators she was watching the sheriffs office cars going up and down the road, when she was approached by Meekin. Meekin apparently offered the witness one hundred dollars to say that he was with her and the other people nearby, Cochran said. The witness told Meekin no. Meekin then lunged at the witness and she took Meekin to the ground and flagged down a deputy, Cochran said. Meekin was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail with a bond of $50,000.Store burglaryMarion County Sheriffs Office detectives need your help to identify and catch two suspects caught on tape stealing thousands in merchandise and cash.

Train hits vehicleA slow moving Florida Central Railroad train struck a vehicle Friday, Sept. 30, in Ocalas downtown area. The train consisted of the locomotive and four tanker cars containing used motor oil. There was no breach of the cars or spill of the contents. The driver of the vehicle and crew of the train were not injured. The incident occurred on Osceola Avenue between Southeast 2nd and 3rd Streets. Ocala Fire Rescues Captain Ed Raulerson was in the vicinity, immediately assessed the scene and called for assistance. The incident occurred at 3:12 p.m. In the photo, a firefighter examines the condition of the vehicle. 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. Complete contest details 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.

RIBSC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 1 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Someone from your past could arrive with welcome news concerning your future. Meanwhile, avoid taking sides in a workplace confrontation until you have more facts to go on. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A decision about a relationship could have longerlasting consequences than you might imagine, so be sure of your facts before you act. A trusted friend can help. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A strained relationship could be restored with more personal contact between the two of you. Letting others act as your go-between only adds to the ongoing estrangement. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New facts could mean taking a new path toward a goal youve been hoping to reach. However, be sure all your questions are answered before you undertake to shift directions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good week for all you fine Felines to turn your attention to some important considerations, such as your health, your job situation and the status of important relationships. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid making a quick decision about a matter that needs more study. Keep your mind open for possibilities, even if they dont seem plausible at least not yet. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might welcome the emphasis on openness in relationships that mark this period. But its a good idea to avoid sharing personal secrets with people you hardly know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) There are still some questions that need to be asked and answered before you can feel confident enough to make a potentially life-changing decision. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Some lingering effects from a now largely resolved workplace confrontation could make things difficult for you. Act on this before it becomes serious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You feel youre finally in control of your own life after months of making compromises and concessions you never felt comfortable with. Congratulations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) No sooner do you decide to pass on one job offer than another suddenly turns up. This one might not have everything youre looking for, but its worth checking out. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Congratulations. With Jupiters strong influence dominating this week, dont be surprised to get some good news about a troubling financial matter. BORN THIS WEEK: You are usually kind and loving. But you can be highly critical of those who dont measure up to your high standards. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

The greens were in excellent shape, so no excuses were accepted for scores. The game was slightly different than usual two net scores counted on the par 5s, three net scores on the par 4s, and all four net scores counted on the par 3s. The winners with a score of 182 were Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens and Pat Schiavo. Second with a score of 184 were Ron Tennant, Ralph Lavacca, Dick Feltenberger and John Cerlenko. Third with a score of 187 were Al Prachel, Larry Collins, Bob Gildea and Dick Berbig. Closest to the pin on the par 3s were Ralph Lavacca, Hal Loomis, Art Pruneau and Bob Gildea. October is shaping up to be cool and dry, at least for the first part of the month. Enjoy the golf!

D idn t a report come out recently th at named maj or banks th at were f unding t h is activ ity? S eth J erg ens, N ew Y ork, NY Yes its true that many major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are removed by explosives to expose thin seams of recoverable coal. The wasted earth and other materials are either put back onto the mountain top in an approximation of their original contours, wreaking havoc on local ecosystems and biodiversity, or dumped into neighboring valleys, polluting lakes and streams and jeopardizing water quality for humans and wildlife. According to the nonprofit Rainforest Action Network (RAN), this dumpingespecially throughout Appalachia where MTR is most prevalentundermines the objectives and requirements of the Clean Water Act. The group adds that some 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried or contaminated in the region. The mining destroys Appalachian communities, the health of coalfield residents and any hope for positive economic growth.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... leading non-profit green group concerned about MTR, the Sierra Club, in publishing a report card reviewing 10 of the worlds largest banks in regard to their financing of MTR coal mining projects. The new 2011 version of Policy and Practice takes a look at the MTR-related financing practices of Bank of America, CitiBank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, GE Capital, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, PNC, UBS and Wells Fargo. What did they find? Since January 2010, the 10 banks reviewed have provided upwards of $2.5 billion in loans and bonds to companies practicing MTR. While some of the banksChase, Wells Fargo, PNC, UBS, and Credit Suisseadopted policies limiting their financing of MTR, few actually pulled funding in place from any such activities upon adopting such policies. Citibank, despite announcing publicly in 2009 that it would limit its involvement in MTR, doubled its investments in the business in 2010. RAN and the Sierra Club are also keeping a close eye on UBS which, soon after stating that it needs to be satisfied that the client is committed to reduce over time its exposure to (MTR), went ahead and acted as a paid adviser on the merger of Massey Energy, which operated the West Virginia mine where 29 men died last year, and Alpha Natural Resources. This merger created the largest single MTR company in the country, now responsible for some 25 percent of coal production from MTR mines. The report card grades each bank based on its current position and practice regarding MTR investments, and calls on the banks to strengthen their policies and cease their financial support for coal companies engaging in MTR. The best practice...is a clear exclusion policy on commercial lending and investment banking services for all coal companies who practice mountaintop removal coal extraction, says RAN. RAN and the Sierra Club hope that by exposing the impact these banks are having on the environment through their financing programs, they can help alert the public and policymakers to the need to outlaw MTR coal mining altogether.

EARTHCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 PHOTO BY ILOVEMOUNTAINS.ORGMany major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are blown up to expose the recoverable coal. Despite some banks stated intent to limit such financing, a Sierra Club/Rainforest Action Network report card indicates that few are yet doing what they say. 000977H Join us this Sunday at Faith Presbyterian Church, as we worship our great God together!

A recent example was the go-round between the House and Senate over additional funding for FEMA the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Democrats in the Senate viewed more money for FEMA as an opportunity to affirm their righteous commitment to unlimited spending and vote gathering. They suggested an additional $7 billion for FEMA. To demonstrate their unwavering commitment to frugality, House Republicans suggested $3.7 billion of additional funding for FEMA, with a clause requiring an offset of $1.6 billion of cuts from green energy spending. Verbal salvos were exchanged between the chambers, the best of which came from the Senate Democrats in a few words of feigned innocence: Weve never had to do it this way before. Bunkum! Theyve transferred funds from other sources to FEMA on several occasions. After weeks of Democratic campaigning and liberal editoriwww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 7, 2011 It seems that its becoming a regular occurrence to have something happen that makes me feel old. Of course, maybe thats because I am old. But thats another story. This past Sunday, 60 Minutes, the long-running series, said goodbye to one of its most identifiable personalities, as Andy Rooney signed off for the last time as a regular contributor. Of course, the world regular is vital here. Hell probably be back from time to time. At age 92, he said he wasnt retiring. Writers never retire, he said. And thats a key. He considers himself a writer, which he has done most of his adult life, and not a television personality. He was described as a curmudgeon and the nations grouch-in-chief, and admitted he lived up to that. He said he never signs autographs, and wondered why people would want his name on a piece of paper. He also said that he doesnt like being recognized, and told people if they saw him in a restaurant, just let him eat my dinner. He added that he gets a lot of mail, but answers very few of the letters he receives. Rooney first hit the 60 Minutes airwaves in 1978. His opinions, usually produced in the final few minutes of the show, took on all sorts of causes with no sacred cows. In a clip shown on Sundays show, he wondered out loud about why there was so much cotton placed in the top of pill bottles, and he had the props to prove it. He also took a box of cereal, and compared the size of what was inside to the oversized photos on the outside of the box. The show also displayed some of his more serious moments, including the weekend after the Challenger shuttle disaster, and the show after the Oklahoma City bombing, in which he didnt mince words about what he would do to the bombers. For me, he was the highlight of the show. There were many times I tuned in the first two minutes to see what was coming up, and quite often it didnt impress me. But if the announcer said all this and Andy Rooney, I made sure I watched or taped those last few minutes of the show, just to see what he had to say. CBS never figured out that they were alienating people who like this show by not properly scheduling it when the program wouldnt be delayed by football. So how ironic was it that this final goodbye from Andy Rooney started late, because the Dolphins-Chargers game ran over into the time slot. One last time, it was hard to set the DVR to record Andy Rooney because of football. It will be interesting to follow the ratings course of 60 Minutes, to see if the departure of Andy Rooney will have an effect. I know that for me, it clearly will make a difference.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

This is National Newspaper Week, a yearly event noted by the nations publications as a time to remind people that the best source for local news remains a newspaper. A recent news report indicated that Yahoo is experiencing significant decreases in the time users spend on its sites. The directors of the company were even reported to be considering the sale of parts of the company. The reporter concluded that Yahoo was no longer relevant as many Internet users are not using Yahoo or any of its products. Whether you believe that Yahoo is relevant to you or not, it is interesting to observe such a negative public discussion about a company that just 15 years ago could do no wrong. Many believed that Yahoo had a better future than newspapers. There was the expectation that Yahoo, Microsoft and others would create local online communities where people could find the latest news and information. In case you havent noticed, they werent successful in their attempts to provide local news. In fact, it is likely that any news you find on Yahoo, Google and other sites was probably produced by a newspaper or a newspaper affiliated organization. But that doesnt mean that the way people get their news isnt changing, because it is. Newspapers are still the number one source for local news, although now it is in print AND online. And things will continue to change. We expect that more readers in the future will be reading our stories on their iPad or other tablets and on their smart phones. The next time you attend a local event, look around and you probably wont find a reporter or photographer with a Yahoo, Microsoft or Google press pass. You may not even see people from bigger regional newspapers. But what you will see are representatives from your local newspaper, a newspaper such as ours. But, as a newspaper reader, you probably figured that out already, and it is certainly time to say thank you for reading this newspaper and making us your top source for local news! Breast cancer awareness monthTwo of the most dreaded words in modern day health care, especially for women, are heard far too often: breast cancer. This is the month that were all asked to make sure we keep up the awareness and the fight against this dreaded disease. There are various programs and events designed to help with this awareness, and want everyone to take part. Most importantly, we want people to get examined to make sure that if you should come down with this disease, its early enough to get treatment and survive. So dont put off going to the doctor. Get yourself checked. We also praise those who have survived and are acting as an inspiration to others. We hope that by working together, we can minimize the effects of breast cancer.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

SPECIALIZING IN SYSTEM CHANGE-OUTS WE SERVICE ALL BRANDS MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS / COMFORT CLUB COMFORT CLUB DISCOUNTS 24-HOUR EMERGENCY SERVICE BowersAir .com als pleading FEMA needs help, a sudden resolution of the disagreement was discovered in unspent FEMA accounts. Funds would not run out on Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday. They would last through Friday, the last day of the fiscal year, provided another disaster didnt happen on Thursday. FEMA has had a busy year hurricane Irene, tropical storm Lee, wildfires, tornadoes, and some tremors. The total number of assistance declarations for 2011 is not yet complete. FEMA assistance declarations have increased dramatically over the past 15 years 43 under the first President Bush, 89 during the Clinton administration, 130 by the second President Bush, and 108 in the first year of President Obama, a year in which there were no hurricanes or other major disasters. Qualification for a federal assistance means a disaster of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the state or local government. However, the tests applied have been so lowered that some states qualify for assistance if estimated damages are likely to exceed only a million dollars more like a damaged sewer pipe than a flood. Applications for disaster declarations have become an avenue for shifting state obligations onto federal taxpayers. Some states seldom call on FEMA for assistance, while others are regular customers. More money spent on minor occurrences which states could and should handle themselves means less money available when real disasters occur. In the shadows behind the liberalization of what does or does not qualify as a disaster are Congressional and White House politicians who find it difficult to say no to puddle-disasters. Disaster politics is growing another federal welfare agency, which has accumulated its own deficit of several billion dollars owed to state and local governments for real disasters of the past. And thats the rest of the story. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Get Out of Our HouseKeith Flaugh, a spokesman for GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House) drove from Marco Island to speak to Tea Party Solutions of Ocala about this truly grassroots, non-partisan organization, that has a plan to replace Congress in 2012. Keith is an Army veteran and retired in 2001 after 27 years with IBM. As a free market capitalist, and frustrated with career politicians and the monopoly held by the two political parties, he joined a 9/12 group and a local Tea Party in 2010. GOOOH is a system created by an innovative Dell engineer who has spent his entire life developing complex computer systems that change the way we do things. The system is designed to take advantage of the Internet and social networking to allow the people to choose their own candidate, and not necessarily the ones the two parties offer. The system looks to change three things: 1. Accountability by the candidate. 2. Term limits. 3. The way money is raised and used, to eliminate PACs, special interests, and unions. GOOOH is a process; it requires ordinary citizens to participate, and has the greatest realistic chance ever, to change the system. You must become a GOOOH member and complete six steps in order to participate in the Candidate Selection Sessions. The process involves all 435 Districts in the country, with citizens in each of those districts participating in Candidate Selection Sessions to choose a candidate of the people to run in all the Primaries across the country. The selection will be based on a number of eliminating sessions and a Candidate Questionnaire containing over 100 questions that must be answered, for or against, and then signed to insure accountability. The candidates will be bound to vote in accordance with their answers. The money will be raised by requiring 500,000 participating citizens (in a country of over 300 million) to donate $100 each to participate in the Selection process. We must raise that much money because the Republicans and Democrats will each spend over $500 million on their campaigns. It will also raise sufficient funds to launch a world-class national campaign for all 435 of our candidates. We can do this and we need to start now! You need to go to the website, www.goooh.com, to read a much more comprehensive explanation of this process and to sign up as a member. Reading the information provided will help you understand that the process is not as overwhelming as you may think, and it is accomplishable. It may be our last chance to save our country and have representatives that are truly accountable to their constituents. BTW, be sure to read some of the public comments, including those made by more famous people like Lou Dobbs and Dennis John Terry OcalaRedistribultionI am a Tea Party Patriot. I am for redistribution. This is how it will be handled. 1. Take Barack and Michelles money, along with all their czars assets, and give them to that poor woman who is waiting for that free Obama money. She should be first on this list. 2. Next all of George Soros ill gotten gains should be doled out to any indolent drug addict that wants it. George will be thrilled to give. He is very free with his money. 3. Next, I am absolutely certain Michael Moore, Bill Maher, and that Socialist Hollywood clique will gladly turn over all their worldly goods. This is their issue. Time to pony up, kids. 4. It is time Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Chuck Schumer, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters to bring on all your ill gotten gains, and contribute to the pot. It is your idea, your money should pay for this redistribution. 5. Of course all the Hedge Fund, and derivative money should go into that big distribution pot as well. 6. Defund the UN, and a few other useless government agencies. 7. Money, money, money. Money all over the place. Just get it from the right sources. These Socialists have it in spades. Let them fund redistribution. 8. These kind folks want redistribution, but, they want it to be on the back of the middle class. Please: Go jump in a lake, but leave your money behind. There, now, that should pretty much take care of all those people clamoring for that Free Obama Money. That leaves the rest of us poor tax slaves in the middle, alone. We get to keep our hard earned money. Everybody is happy, and the job is neatly done. Fair and square. We did not even have to go to Buffet or the Gates for a handout. If we come up a few bucks short, certain they will kick in a few dollars. We know Buffet is ready. Perhaps, he might want to tackle our tremendous drug problem with a few spare dollars. An entire generation of Boomer Boobs strung out on drugs. What is that all about? D.I. Larson, Ocala Your columnist has been the Oak Run blood drive coordinator for many years but she has run out of steam! This very important Oak Run contribution to the community needs someone new to spark renewed life into it. It needs, if you will excuse the pun, new blood. Please, please will someone step forward to fill this vital role? I will help you get a handle on the relatively simple housekeeping requirements such as room requests (which have already been submitted for 2012), etc. I will also be able to help you with publicity, such as the article you are now reading. But we need a new face to interact with Floridas Blood Centers and be the coordinator of the Oak Run drive. The duties are not onerous but enthusiasm is a necessity. If you have even minimal interest in helping to ensure life-saving blood is available for the citizens of Marion County please call me and lets talk.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Hospital Board MeetingWell, I had to follow through with my commitment to MRMC and went to the board meeting along with my wife on Sept. 26. I was elated with the outcome. A number of us as citizens spoke and I dont know but I could have done better but the public prevailed and the District Board of Trustees and Directors of Munroe Regional Medical Medical Center voted to keep operation of MRMC as it is, until 2023. My concern was the hospital not go out to bids by public, for-profit hospital corporations. We have one of those in the area now and my wife and I have used it and it was not good. One of my other concerns is the public relations of the hospital. They have a great staff but I feel since MRMC is our hospital, there should be a closer tie to the citizenry of Marion County and its environs. Ive been pushing for 1 1/2 years to get the hospital, through letters to the editor, to use the slogan MRMC, our hospital, and I think I made some headway in this endeavor. Two presentations stood out for me. First, Steve Purvis, CEO of the Munroe Health Care Systems, Inc. gave an outstanding speech. He commented that MRMC is your hospital in his remarks, which ties in with what Ive been talking about. The other was Kulbar Ghumman, who of all the trustees and board members gave the most intelligent speech after Mr. Purvis spoke. Now Mr. Ghumman and I dont always see eye to eye, which we understand, but you have to give credit where credit is due and he really came to the aid of the citizens of Marion County. Other board members spoke but none with the eloquence of these two gentlemen. There were 10 or 12 members of the public who spoke and I was number four. I could not match the presentations by Mr. Purvis or Mr. Ghumman. There were some comments, but not in the meeting, but through other sources, that we have another hospital in the area but they get no public support. Youre darn right they dont, because they are a for-profit hospital and part of Hospital Corporation of America. Man you dont want to even get involved with for-profit hospitals. Thats a nightmare. As a Medicare/Blue Cross auditor here in Florida, I uncovered a $750,000 fraud at an adjoining county hospital and because they had gone public, I had to testify before the Securities and Exchange Commission and that I can tell you is real hell. So why dont more of you folks out there write and push for MRMC our hospital because it is ours. It is one of the leading hospitals in the state and we need to support in any way we can. Bill Ford, Oak Run Former Hospital Medicare fraud auditor, Vice President of Medicare B for Wisconsin Medical Service Vive President of St. Louis Blue Shield for Internal Audit, to name a fewFood inspectorsAt one time the government of the United States was concerned that suppliers of food might be more concerned with profit than your health. They had inspectors visit facilities to test for unsafe bacteria. Republicans were successful in cutting excessive government spending. There are not enough inspectors to safeguard our health. We have one terrible report after another. On your computer List of foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States. The next one is coming. Alan Gold Ocala LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Ihave read of people who testified to the fact that they have had an out-of-body experience. After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have so developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-Z-Boy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baabaa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out of cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-of-cash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out of cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out of cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out of cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out of arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out of cash. Being out of cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would come up with a little bit of cash on its own. But no, it leaves everything to me. My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about seven miles out of town when I ran out of gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out of luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being out of cash or being out of luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you Im having an out-of-cash experience are simply out of luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE11 Visit our website at www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Many people enjoy watching the changing seasons, and in many parts of the country we find ourselves at that time of the year when the shifting from one season to another seems most enjoyable. In many parts of the country, the lush green foliage gradually fades to an autumn rainbow of yellow-orangered-brown. Cool air brings light jackets out of closets. Pumpkins and decorative corn begin to appear on porches and doorsteps. But, seasons are not the only things that change. When it comes to some changes, we at Social Security need to know about them. If you receive Social Security benefits, there are certain things that we need to know about you in order to continue paying your benefits. Here is a reminder of some of the most important reporting responsibilities for people who receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Your address. Even if you receive your payments by direct deposit or debit card (as most people do), we still need a good mailing address so we can get in touch with you when we need to. You can inform us of a change of address, as well as telephone number, at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your direct deposit information. If your payments go to your financial institution for direct deposit, you need to notify us of any changes. If you change your account information without letting us know, your payment could go to the wrong place. You can change your deposit information at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your work, if disabled. If you receive disability benefits, we need to know about any work you do. If you start work, stop work, or have any change in your work, hours, or pay, we need to know. Your living arrangements, if you receive SSI. People who receive SSI are paid, in part, based on financial need. Payments may change based on your living arrangements. Because of that, we need to know how many people are in your household and how the expenses are shared. There are other things we need to know about, such as if youre institutionalized, if youre no longer able to handle your finances, or if youve been convicted of a crime.

Because of the days importance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink, or do work. Yizkor adds to the days solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year.

In the days following the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11, it became clear that there was a devastating loss of life, especially among the New York City firefighters. News reports concentrated on the statistics the how and the why. Playwright Anne Nelson has chosen to concentrate on the who and has created an intimate and loving portrait of two people the Captain of Ladder Company 60 and a writer affected by the tragedy and how they cope with moving ahead without The Guys. This heartfelt drama will be performed live, on stage at Ocala Civic Theatre now through 16. Based on the personal experience of the playwright, The Guys tells the story of Joan, an editor and writer, and Nick, a FDNY captain who lost eight men from his company on 9/11. The families of the firefighters are preparing for memorial services and have asked Nick to speak. Eight men. Its overwhelming. A friend calls Joan to ask if she can help Nick write the eulogies. Over one long, Saturday afternoon, Nick talks to Joan about his men and she crafts the moving tribute to each that Nick will deliver. Both characters are moved by the action two people who, under normal circumstances, would never meet. The fire captain knows he needs the expertise of this woman as he faces one of the most difficult challenges of his career and the writer needs to do something, anything, to respond to the disaster. For her, words are the only way she can help. The result is a moving theatre experience that articulates the emotions and longings that many have faced after September 11. The Guys was originally produced Off-Broadway at The Flea Theater, located seven blocks from Ground Zero. It starred Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray. In 2002, Weaver starred in the film adaptation with Anthony LaPaglia as the fire captain. The Ocala Civic Theatre production features Marcy Butler as Joan and John LaPaille as Nick. Both actors have extensive experience performing for local audiences. SuSu Sparkman is directing. The Guys will be onstage at Ocala Civic Theatre through Oct. 16. Tickets are currently on sale at the Theatres box office, by telephone at 352236-2274, and online at www.ocalacivictheatre.co m. (A service charge applies to online purchases.) Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for full-time students. Active duty and retired firefighters and policemen may attend any performance of The Guys for half-price with proof of employment. A special performance is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. A part of the proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Marion County Public Assistance Trust, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical responders, full-time civilian employees and their families in Ocala and Marion County who are injured or killed in the line of duty. Several performances will be followed by a free talk-back with the cast and director and local public safety organizations. For a complete list of talk-back topics, please contact the Ocala Civic Theatre box office. The Guys is beautifully written play will stir your heart. Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Theres nothing dazzling about a government conspiracy, a subject already done to death, except that in The Sixth Man Baldacci provides a chilly twist in the character of Edgar Roy, a savant whose photographic mind cannot forget anything hes ever seen or heard. Consequently, he can foresee with uncanny accuracy what may come next. Roy is Peter Buntings cash cow for one of Americas largest intelligence groups. With Roy predicting future events with some certainty, Buntings competition is virtually wiped out. Then, incredibly, Roy is accused of murder when six bodies are discovered in his barn. When the novel opens, he is incarcerated in an impregnable fortress in rural Maine and is not uttering a single word to anyone. The loss of Roys insights to national security is both disturbing and incalculable: There are still plenty of analysts out there doing what they do. But Buntings person was tasked with seeing the big picture, connecting the dots. Thats always been lacking across the intelligence spectrum. Roys defense attorney, Ted Bergin, needs all the help he can get. Enter Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two dedicated P .I.s ready to tackle the challenge. But before their first meeting with Bergin, his body is found in his car, the drivers window rolled down, suggesting he knew his assailant. Thereafter the narrative unfolds in a straight linear fashion with bodies turning up at regular intervals and the detective duo ducking shots around every corner by thuggish pursuers. Theres little in the way of surprises here with the exception of a rogue Department of Homeland Security, headed by blond, attractive Ellen Foster who could gallop the range from iron maiden to feminine flirt with ease. Worse yet, she has the presidents ear. The true stunner in this novel comes at the end. I, for one, did not see this shocker coming. Ending takes reader by surprise BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington THE SIXTH MANBy David Baldacci Christopher Columbus may have been the greatest politician of all time. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. While there he decimated the well being of the majority of the population. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone elses money. Todays politicians are trying to outdo him. Nevertheless, on Monday we celebrate Columbus Day. Some believe that when Columbus returned to Spain, he told Queen Isabella that he had reached India. Actually, documents written by Queen Isabellas official scribe were recently uncovered revealing what he said. His first words were, Ill bet Im the first man who ever got nineteen hundred miles on a galleon.Not so hotThe teacher asked her fifth-grade class, How was Columbus treated when he returned from his third voyage? One student said, Lots of people met him at the pier, and they all had a great time. Sternly, the teacher said, You didnt read the assignment. The student brought the textbook up to the teachers desk and showed her where it read, Columbus received a cool reception when he returned from his third voyage.Carrying a tuneHaving spent a large part of Spains treasury building Columbuss three ships, Queen Isabella was adamant that the expedition be successful so she spared no expense in providing for the comfort of the crews. Wine, food, spices, and other essentials were to be packed in abundance and singers assigned for entertainment on the long journey. Just before the launch, the Queen asked her Chief of Foreign Affairs if there was anything she could have forgotten. No, he assured her. They have lots of food for the journey? Yes, my Queen. And wine? Yes, Your Majesty. How about entertainment? Oh Yes, Your Highness, just as you ordered, sixteen per vessel. Thats four quartets to the galleon.Bits and piecesOn Columbus Day, postal workers get the day off because this adventurer is an inspiration to them. His journey also took years to reach a destination. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. I was surprised to see my psychiatrist in the audience of the Grammy awards, and even more surprised when his name was read as the winner for best new music genre. Its called, Shrink Rap. We all know that Columbus set sail from Europe looking for a sea route to India and ended up in America. Today, ironically, if you make a call from Europe to a company in America, you get to India. I went to the butchers the other day and I bet him $50 that he couldnt reach the meat off the top shelf. He said, No, the steaks are too high. A lady wrote to an advice column in a newspaper: I have been engaged to a man for some time, but just before the wedding, I found he has a wooden leg. Do you think I should break it off?Big birdIn the Appalachian Mountain backwoods there just isnt anyone hang-gliding. But Zeke saw a magazine article and decided to save up to get a hangglider. After taking it to the mountain peak near his valley home he ran to the edge and took off into the wind. Meanwhile, his Maw and Paw were sittin on the porch swing when Maw spotted the biggest bird she had ever seen. Look at the size of that bird, Paw! she exclaimed. Paw stood up, Git my gun, Maw. Maw ran into the house and brought out his shotgun. He took careful aim and fired three times. The monster-size bird continued to sail silently over the treetops. I think ya missed him, Paw, she said. Yeah, he replied, but at least he let go of Zeke!All about nothingA man passed a small courtyard and heard voices murmuring. He went in and saw an altar with a large zero in the middle and a banner that read NIL. White-robed people were kneeling before the altar chanting hymns to The Great Nullity and The Blessed Emptiness. The man turned to a white-robed observer beside him and asked, Is Nothing Sacred?Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

College of Central Florida, Health Services Medical Scenario Role Player The Emergency Medical Services Program at the College of Central Florida trains over 200 EMT and Paramedic students each year. We would like volunteers who would be willing to play the part of the patient in typical 911 emergency medical scenarios. Having real people play the part of the patient allows our students to be exposed to high stakes patient care experiences without compromising patient safety. Training for our students involves the use of actors, sound effects, costumes, props and mock injuries in combination with human patient simulators in carefully scripted scenarios. Some of the scenarios could be disturbing for those without a medical background. While we welcome any who wish to participate, we do so with a word of caution about the nature of the subject matter. Volunteers may be asked to wear costumes or have makeup applied to simulate an injury. A volunteer orientation will be given to each participant interested which will include a tour of our EMS facility and a more in-depth description of your role as a volunteer with our program. For additional information contact Carolyn Reyes at 352-237-2111 ext. 1747.

CLIFFORD GRIEF Marion County Fire RescueMaggie, a 4-year-old Labrador retriever who is Marion County Fire Rescues furriest and most adorable volunteer, learned how to safely escape a house fire by staying low to the ground, and now shes helping firefighters demonstrate the technique during Marion County Fire Rescues Fire Prevention Month 2011. Throughout October, Maggie will teach students across Marion County to be just like her when trying to escape from a burning home, an emergency in which proper planning and swift action can prevent a tragedy. MCFR firefighters will visit each public elementary school in Marion County this month during its Fire Prevention Month 2011 campaign. The overarching message of the campaign is simple: Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! Get Down During a fire, smoke will rise, making it difficult to breathe if occupants stand up and try to walk out of the house. Therefore, children are encouraged to get low to the ground, where the air is easier to breathe, and crawl to safety. Get Out Every second counts in a fire emergency, so children should calmly exit the home as quickly as possible without stopping to call 911 or look for family members or pets. Get on the Phone Once outside the home, children should proceed to a predetermined meeting area a safe distance from the home so parents and firefighters can accurately account for everyone in the home. Then, 911 should be called from either a neighbors home or by using a cellular phone safely outside the home. During each fire prevention month campaign, MCFR tests students to gauge their understanding of the fire-safety messages being presented. Test data from last year showed that for the first time since MCFR began its month-long program in 2007, most students understood that they should exit the burning building before calling 911. But the data also revealed that many students werent aware that they should then head to a family meeting place outside the home, so having children pick a meeting place with their families will be a point of emphasis this month. MCFR will reach more than 20,000 students during this months campaign and deliver potentially life-saving information through: Classroom curriculum based on Sunshine State Standards that reiterates fire safety messages while reinforcing reading, writing and math skills Hands-on presentations with firefighters. Maggie also will attend presentations at selected schools. A video public-service announcement featuring Maggie and based on the Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! theme A countywide poster contest to get students to illustrate what theyve learned One message firefighters will share with students is the importance of creating a fire escape plan with their families. An escape plan should include these basics: Create a map or drawing of the home and identify two exits from each room (usually a door and a window). Plan around the abilities of each member of the household by ensuring that each occupant can access each exit and that all doors and windows are unobstructed and operational. For two-story homes, have escape ladders ready to use at a moments notice and ensure children know how to place and use the ladders. Mark where smoke alarms are located throughout the home on the map; ensure batteries are changed twice a year and the alarms are tested monthly. Identify a safe meeting place outside so everyone knows where to meet during an emergency. The meeting place should be a safe distance from the home such as a mailbox, a large tree or a neighbors home. Call 911 from that safe meeting place. Never go back inside a burning building for any reason. Teach children to escape immediately and not to stop for pets or toys. Leave that to adults or firefighters. Practice the fire escape plan with your family at least twice a year, teaching children to crawl low (under the smoke) to safety. Additional fire safety resources, including an escape grid to help you get started on your escape plan and a home safety checklist, are available on MCFRs Web site: www.marioncountyfl.org/FireRescue/Fire_default.aspx by clicking the Fire Prevention Month link.

CLIFFORD GRIEF Marion County Fire RescueMaggie, a 4-year-old Labrador retriever who is Marion County Fire Rescues furriest and most adorable volunteer, learned how to safely escape a house fire by staying low to the ground, and now shes helping firefighters demonstrate the technique during Marion County Fire Rescues Fire Prevention Month 2011. Throughout October, Maggie will teach students across Marion County to be just like her when trying to escape from a burning home, an emergency in which proper planning and swift action can prevent a tragedy. MCFR firefighters will visit each public elementary school in Marion County this month during its Fire Prevention Month 2011 campaign. The overarching message of the campaign is simple: Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! Get Down During a fire, smoke will rise, making it difficult to breathe if occupants stand up and try to walk out of the house. Therefore, children are encouraged to get low to the ground, where the air is easier to breathe, and crawl to safety. Get Out Every second counts in a fire emergency, so children should calmly exit the home as quickly as possible without stopping to call 911 or look for family members or pets. Get on the Phone Once outside the home, children should proceed to a predetermined meeting area a safe distance from the home so parents and firefighters can accurately account for everyone in the home. Then, 911 should be called from either a neighbors home or by using a cellular phone safely outside the home. During each fire prevention month campaign, MCFR tests students to gauge their understanding of the fire-safety messages being presented. Test data from last year showed that for the first time since MCFR began its month-long program in 2007, most students understood that they should exit the burning building before calling 911. But the data also revealed that many students werent aware that they should then head to a family meeting place outside the home, so having children pick a meeting place with their families will be a point of emphasis this month. MCFR will reach more than 20,000 students during this months campaign and deliver potentially life-saving information through: Classroom curriculum based on Sunshine State Standards that reiterates fire safety messages while reinforcing reading, writing and math skills Hands-on presentations with firefighters. Maggie also will attend presentations at selected schools. A video public-service announcement featuring Maggie and based on the Get Down. Get Out. Get on the Phone! theme A countywide poster contest to get students to illustrate what theyve learned One message firefighters will share with students is the importance of creating a fire escape plan with their families. An escape plan should include these basics: Create a map or drawing of the home and identify two exits from each room (usually a door and a window). Plan around the abilities of each member of the household by ensuring that each occupant can access each exit and that all doors and windows are unobstructed and operational. For two-story homes, have escape ladders ready to use at a moments notice and ensure children know how to place and use the ladders. Mark where smoke alarms are located throughout the home on the map; ensure batteries are changed twice a year and the alarms are tested monthly. Identify a safe meeting place outside so everyone knows where to meet during an emergency. The meeting place should be a safe distance from the home such as a mailbox, a large tree or a neighbors home. Call 911 from that safe meeting place. Never go back inside a burning building for any reason. Teach children to escape immediately and not to stop for pets or toys. Leave that to adults or firefighters. Practice the fire escape plan with your family at least twice a year, teaching children to crawl low (under the smoke) to safety. Additional fire safety resources, including an escape grid to help you get started on your escape plan and a home safety checklist, are available on MCFRs Web site: www.marioncountyfl.org/FireRescue/Fire_default.aspx by clicking the Fire Prevention Month link.

College of Central Florida, Health Services Medical Scenario Role Player The Emergency Medical Services Program at the College of Central Florida trains over 200 EMT and Paramedic students each year. We would like volunteers who would be willing to play the part of the patient in typical 911 emergency medical scenarios. Having real people play the part of the patient allows our students to be exposed to high stakes patient care experiences without compromising patient safety. Training for our students involves the use of actors, sound effects, costumes, props and mock injuries in combination with human patient simulators in carefully scripted scenarios. Some of the scenarios could be disturbing for those without a medical background. While we welcome any who wish to participate, we do so with a word of caution about the nature of the subject matter. Volunteers may be asked to wear costumes or have makeup applied to simulate an injury. A volunteer orientation will be given to each participant interested which will include a tour of our EMS facility and a more in-depth description of your role as a volunteer with our program. For additional information contact Carolyn Reyes at 352-237-2111 ext. 1747.

We need people to help all of the vintage cars line up on the field properly. Is traffic direction your forte? There will be lots of cars and motorcycles arriving that need to be directed toward parking and the event. Prior to Nov. 12: Help us distribute flyers and posters prior to the event.

In the days following the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11, it became clear that there was a devastating loss of life, especially among the New York City firefighters. News reports concentrated on the statistics the how and the why. Playwright Anne Nelson has chosen to concentrate on the who and has created an intimate and loving portrait of two people the Captain of Ladder Company 60 and a writer affected by the tragedy and how they cope with moving ahead without The Guys. This heartfelt drama will be performed live, on stage at Ocala Civic Theatre now through 16. Based on the personal experience of the playwright, The Guys tells the story of Joan, an editor and writer, and Nick, a FDNY captain who lost eight men from his company on 9/11. The families of the firefighters are preparing for memorial services and have asked Nick to speak. Eight men. Its overwhelming. A friend calls Joan to ask if she can help Nick write the eulogies. Over one long, Saturday afternoon, Nick talks to Joan about his men and she crafts the moving tribute to each that Nick will deliver. Both characters are moved by the action two people who, under normal circumstances, would never meet. The fire captain knows he needs the expertise of this woman as he faces one of the most difficult challenges of his career and the writer needs to do something, anything, to respond to the disaster. For her, words are the only way she can help. The result is a moving theatre experience that articulates the emotions and longings that many have faced after September 11. The Guys was originally produced Off-Broadway at The Flea Theater, located seven blocks from Ground Zero. It starred Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray. In 2002, Weaver starred in the film adaptation with Anthony LaPaglia as the fire captain. The Ocala Civic Theatre production features Marcy Butler as Joan and John LaPaille as Nick. Both actors have extensive experience performing for local audiences. SuSu Sparkman is directing. The Guys will be onstage at Ocala Civic Theatre through Oct. 16. Tickets are currently on sale at the Theatres box office, by telephone at 352236-2274, and online at www.ocalacivictheatre.co m. (A service charge applies to online purchases.) Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for full-time students. Active duty and retired firefighters and policemen may attend any performance of The Guys for half-price with proof of employment. A special performance is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. A part of the proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Marion County Public Assistance Trust, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical responders, full-time civilian employees and their families in Ocala and Marion County who are injured or killed in the line of duty. Several performances will be followed by a free talk-back with the cast and director and local public safety organizations. For a complete list of talk-back topics, please contact the Ocala Civic Theatre box office. The Guys is beautifully written play will stir your heart. Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Theres nothing dazzling about a government conspiracy, a subject already done to death, except that in The Sixth Man Baldacci provides a chilly twist in the character of Edgar Roy, a savant whose photographic mind cannot forget anything hes ever seen or heard. Consequently, he can foresee with uncanny accuracy what may come next. Roy is Peter Buntings cash cow for one of Americas largest intelligence groups. With Roy predicting future events with some certainty, Buntings competition is virtually wiped out. Then, incredibly, Roy is accused of murder when six bodies are discovered in his barn. When the novel opens, he is incarcerated in an impregnable fortress in rural Maine and is not uttering a single word to anyone. The loss of Roys insights to national security is both disturbing and incalculable: There are still plenty of analysts out there doing what they do. But Buntings person was tasked with seeing the big picture, connecting the dots. Thats always been lacking across the intelligence spectrum. Roys defense attorney, Ted Bergin, needs all the help he can get. Enter Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two dedicated P .I.s ready to tackle the challenge. But before their first meeting with Bergin, his body is found in his car, the drivers window rolled down, suggesting he knew his assailant. Thereafter the narrative unfolds in a straight linear fashion with bodies turning up at regular intervals and the detective duo ducking shots around every corner by thuggish pursuers. Theres little in the way of surprises here with the exception of a rogue Department of Homeland Security, headed by blond, attractive Ellen Foster who could gallop the range from iron maiden to feminine flirt with ease. Worse yet, she has the presidents ear. The true stunner in this novel comes at the end. I, for one, did not see this shocker coming. Ending takes reader by surprise BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington THE SIXTH MANBy David Baldacci Christopher Columbus may have been the greatest politician of all time. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. While there he decimated the well being of the majority of the population. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone elses money. Todays politicians are trying to outdo him. Nevertheless, on Monday we celebrate Columbus Day. Some believe that when Columbus returned to Spain, he told Queen Isabella that he had reached India. Actually, documents written by Queen Isabellas official scribe were recently uncovered revealing what he said. His first words were, Ill bet Im the first man who ever got nineteen hundred miles on a galleon.Not so hotThe teacher asked her fifth-grade class, How was Columbus treated when he returned from his third voyage? One student said, Lots of people met him at the pier, and they all had a great time. Sternly, the teacher said, You didnt read the assignment. The student brought the textbook up to the teachers desk and showed her where it read, Columbus received a cool reception when he returned from his third voyage.Carrying a tuneHaving spent a large part of Spains treasury building Columbuss three ships, Queen Isabella was adamant that the expedition be successful so she spared no expense in providing for the comfort of the crews. Wine, food, spices, and other essentials were to be packed in abundance and singers assigned for entertainment on the long journey. Just before the launch, the Queen asked her Chief of Foreign Affairs if there was anything she could have forgotten. No, he assured her. They have lots of food for the journey? Yes, my Queen. And wine? Yes, Your Majesty. How about entertainment? Oh Yes, Your Highness, just as you ordered, sixteen per vessel. Thats four quartets to the galleon.Bits and piecesOn Columbus Day, postal workers get the day off because this adventurer is an inspiration to them. His journey also took years to reach a destination. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. I was surprised to see my psychiatrist in the audience of the Grammy awards, and even more surprised when his name was read as the winner for best new music genre. Its called, Shrink Rap. We all know that Columbus set sail from Europe looking for a sea route to India and ended up in America. Today, ironically, if you make a call from Europe to a company in America, you get to India. I went to the butchers the other day and I bet him $50 that he couldnt reach the meat off the top shelf. He said, No, the steaks are too high. A lady wrote to an advice column in a newspaper: I have been engaged to a man for some time, but just before the wedding, I found he has a wooden leg. Do you think I should break it off?Big birdIn the Appalachian Mountain backwoods there just isnt anyone hang-gliding. But Zeke saw a magazine article and decided to save up to get a hangglider. After taking it to the mountain peak near his valley home he ran to the edge and took off into the wind. Meanwhile, his Maw and Paw were sittin on the porch swing when Maw spotted the biggest bird she had ever seen. Look at the size of that bird, Paw! she exclaimed. Paw stood up, Git my gun, Maw. Maw ran into the house and brought out his shotgun. He took careful aim and fired three times. The monster-size bird continued to sail silently over the treetops. I think ya missed him, Paw, she said. Yeah, he replied, but at least he let go of Zeke!All about nothingA man passed a small courtyard and heard voices murmuring. He went in and saw an altar with a large zero in the middle and a banner that read NIL. White-robed people were kneeling before the altar chanting hymns to The Great Nullity and The Blessed Emptiness. The man turned to a white-robed observer beside him and asked, Is Nothing Sacred?Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Schneerson of righteous memory. With over 3500 centers and establishments around the globe, it is by far the largest network of Jewish religious and social services in the world. Yom Kippur is the day when God forgives all of the Jewish peoples sins, both as individuals and as communities. By the same token, Jews around the world will spend the day in prayer--atoning for their sins, thanking God for his forgiveness and focusing on self-improvement for the year to come. Because of the days importance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink, or do work. Yizkor adds to the days solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Hospital Board MeetingWell, I had to follow through with my commitment to MRMC and went to the board meeting along with my wife on Sept. 26. I was elated with the outcome. A number of us as citizens spoke and I dont know but I could have done better but the public prevailed and the District Board of Trustees and Directors of Munroe Regional Medical Medical Center voted to keep operation of MRMC as it is, until 2023. My concern was the hospital not go out to bids by public, for-profit hospital corporations. We have one of those in the area now and my wife and I have used it and it was not good. One of my other concerns is the public relations of the hospital. They have a great staff but I feel since MRMC is our hospital, there should be a closer tie to the citizenry of Marion County and its environs. Ive been pushing for 1 1/2 years to get the hospital, through letters to the editor, to use the slogan MRMC, our hospital, and I think I made some headway in this endeavor. Two presentations stood out for me. First, Steve Purvis, CEO of the Munroe Health Care Systems, Inc. gave an outstanding speech. He commented that MRMC is your hospital in his remarks, which ties in with what Ive been talking about. The other was Kulbar Ghumman, who of all the trustees and board members gave the most intelligent speech after Mr. Purvis spoke. Now Mr. Ghumman and I dont always see eye to eye, which we understand, but you have to give credit where credit is due and he really came to the aid of the citizens of Marion County. Other board members spoke but none with the eloquence of these two gentlemen. There were 10 or 12 members of the public who spoke and I was number four. I could not match the presentations by Mr. Purvis or Mr. Ghumman. There were some comments, but not in the meeting, but through other sources, that we have another hospital in the area but they get no public support. Youre darn right they dont, because they are a for-profit hospital and part of Hospital Corporation of America. Man you dont want to even get involved with for-profit hospitals. Thats a nightmare. As a Medicare/Blue Cross auditor here in Florida, I uncovered a $750,000 fraud at an adjoining county hospital and because they had gone public, I had to testify before the Securities and Exchange Commission and that I can tell you is real hell. So why dont more of you folks out there write and push for MRMC our hospital because it is ours. It is one of the leading hospitals in the state and we need to support in any way we can. Bill Ford, Oak Run Former Hospital Medicare fraud auditor, Vice President of Medicare B for Wisconsin Medical Service Vive President of St. Louis Blue Shield for Internal Audit, to name a fewFood inspectorsAt one time the government of the United States was concerned that suppliers of food might be more concerned with profit than your health. They had inspectors visit facilities to test for unsafe bacteria. Republicans were successful in cutting excessive government spending. There are not enough inspectors to safeguard our health. We have one terrible report after another. On your computer List of foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States. The next one is coming. Alan Gold Ocala LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Ihave read of people who testified to the fact that they have had an out-of-body experience. After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have so developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-Z-Boy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baabaa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out of cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-of-cash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out of cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out of cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out of cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out of arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out of cash. Being out of cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would come up with a little bit of cash on its own. But no, it leaves everything to me. My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about seven miles out of town when I ran out of gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out of luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being out of cash or being out of luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you Im having an out-of-cash experience are simply out of luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE11 Visit our website at www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Many people enjoy watching the changing seasons, and in many parts of the country we find ourselves at that time of the year when the shifting from one season to another seems most enjoyable. In many parts of the country, the lush green foliage gradually fades to an autumn rainbow of yellow-orangered-brown. Cool air brings light jackets out of closets. Pumpkins and decorative corn begin to appear on porches and doorsteps. But, seasons are not the only things that change. When it comes to some changes, we at Social Security need to know about them. If you receive Social Security benefits, there are certain things that we need to know about you in order to continue paying your benefits. Here is a reminder of some of the most important reporting responsibilities for people who receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Your address. Even if you receive your payments by direct deposit or debit card (as most people do), we still need a good mailing address so we can get in touch with you when we need to. You can inform us of a change of address, as well as telephone number, at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your direct deposit information. If your payments go to your financial institution for direct deposit, you need to notify us of any changes. If you change your account information without letting us know, your payment could go to the wrong place. You can change your deposit information at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your work, if disabled. If you receive disability benefits, we need to know about any work you do. If you start work, stop work, or have any change in your work, hours, or pay, we need to know. Your living arrangements, if you receive SSI. People who receive SSI are paid, in part, based on financial need. Payments may change based on your living arrangements. Because of that, we need to know how many people are in your household and how the expenses are shared. There are other things we need to know about, such as if youre institutionalized, if youre no longer able to handle your finances, or if youve been convicted of a crime.

SPECIALIZING IN SYSTEM CHANGE-OUTS WE SERVICE ALL BRANDS MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS / COMFORT CLUB COMFORT CLUB DISCOUNTS 24-HOUR EMERGENCY SERVICE BowersAir .com als pleading FEMA needs help, a sudden resolution of the disagreement was discovered in unspent FEMA accounts. Funds would not run out on Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday. They would last through Friday, the last day of the fiscal year, provided another disaster didnt happen on Thursday. FEMA has had a busy year hurricane Irene, tropical storm Lee, wildfires, tornadoes, and some tremors. The total number of assistance declarations for 2011 is not yet complete. FEMA assistance declarations have increased dramatically over the past 15 years 43 under the first President Bush, 89 during the Clinton administration, 130 by the second President Bush, and 108 in the first year of President Obama, a year in which there were no hurricanes or other major disasters. Qualification for a federal assistance means a disaster of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the state or local government. However, the tests applied have been so lowered that some states qualify for assistance if estimated damages are likely to exceed only a million dollars more like a damaged sewer pipe than a flood. Applications for disaster declarations have become an avenue for shifting state obligations onto federal taxpayers. Some states seldom call on FEMA for assistance, while others are regular customers. More money spent on minor occurrences which states could and should handle themselves means less money available when real disasters occur. In the shadows behind the liberalization of what does or does not qualify as a disaster are Congressional and White House politicians who find it difficult to say no to puddle-disasters. Disaster politics is growing another federal welfare agency, which has accumulated its own deficit of several billion dollars owed to state and local governments for real disasters of the past. And thats the rest of the story. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Get Out of Our HouseKeith Flaugh, a spokesman for GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House) drove from Marco Island to speak to Tea Party Solutions of Ocala about this truly grassroots, non-partisan organization, that has a plan to replace Congress in 2012. Keith is an Army veteran and retired in 2001 after 27 years with IBM. As a free market capitalist, and frustrated with career politicians and the monopoly held by the two political parties, he joined a 9/12 group and a local Tea Party in 2010. GOOOH is a system created by an innovative Dell engineer who has spent his entire life developing complex computer systems that change the way we do things. The system is designed to take advantage of the Internet and social networking to allow the people to choose their own candidate, and not necessarily the ones the two parties offer. The system looks to change three things: 1. Accountability by the candidate. 2. Term limits. 3. The way money is raised and used, to eliminate PACs, special interests, and unions. GOOOH is a process; it requires ordinary citizens to participate, and has the greatest realistic chance ever, to change the system. You must become a GOOOH member and complete six steps in order to participate in the Candidate Selection Sessions. The process involves all 435 Districts in the country, with citizens in each of those districts participating in Candidate Selection Sessions to choose a candidate of the people to run in all the Primaries across the country. The selection will be based on a number of eliminating sessions and a Candidate Questionnaire containing over 100 questions that must be answered, for or against, and then signed to insure accountability. The candidates will be bound to vote in accordance with their answers. The money will be raised by requiring 500,000 participating citizens (in a country of over 300 million) to donate $100 each to participate in the Selection process. We must raise that much money because the Republicans and Democrats will each spend over $500 million on their campaigns. It will also raise sufficient funds to launch a world-class national campaign for all 435 of our candidates. We can do this and we need to start now! You need to go to the website, www.goooh.com, to read a much more comprehensive explanation of this process and to sign up as a member. Reading the information provided will help you understand that the process is not as overwhelming as you may think, and it is accomplishable. It may be our last chance to save our country and have representatives that are truly accountable to their constituents. BTW, be sure to read some of the public comments, including those made by more famous people like Lou Dobbs and Dennis John Terry OcalaRedistribultionI am a Tea Party Patriot. I am for redistribution. This is how it will be handled. 1. Take Barack and Michelles money, along with all their czars assets, and give them to that poor woman who is waiting for that free Obama money. She should be first on this list. 2. Next all of George Soros ill gotten gains should be doled out to any indolent drug addict that wants it. George will be thrilled to give. He is very free with his money. 3. Next, I am absolutely certain Michael Moore, Bill Maher, and that Socialist Hollywood clique will gladly turn over all their worldly goods. This is their issue. Time to pony up, kids. 4. It is time Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Chuck Schumer, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters to bring on all your ill gotten gains, and contribute to the pot. It is your idea, your money should pay for this redistribution. 5. Of course all the Hedge Fund, and derivative money should go into that big distribution pot as well. 6. Defund the UN, and a few other useless government agencies. 7. Money, money, money. Money all over the place. Just get it from the right sources. These Socialists have it in spades. Let them fund redistribution. 8. These kind folks want redistribution, but, they want it to be on the back of the middle class. Please: Go jump in a lake, but leave your money behind. There, now, that should pretty much take care of all those people clamoring for that Free Obama Money. That leaves the rest of us poor tax slaves in the middle, alone. We get to keep our hard earned money. Everybody is happy, and the job is neatly done. Fair and square. We did not even have to go to Buffet or the Gates for a handout. If we come up a few bucks short, certain they will kick in a few dollars. We know Buffet is ready. Perhaps, he might want to tackle our tremendous drug problem with a few spare dollars. An entire generation of Boomer Boobs strung out on drugs. What is that all about? D.I. Larson, Ocala Your columnist has been the Oak Run blood drive coordinator for many years but she has run out of steam! This very important Oak Run contribution to the community needs someone new to spark renewed life into it. It needs, if you will excuse the pun, new blood. Please, please will someone step forward to fill this vital role? I will help you get a handle on the relatively simple housekeeping requirements such as room requests (which have already been submitted for 2012), etc. I will also be able to help you with publicity, such as the article you are now reading. But we need a new face to interact with Floridas Blood Centers and be the coordinator of the Oak Run drive. The duties are not onerous but enthusiasm is a necessity. If you have even minimal interest in helping to ensure life-saving blood is available for the citizens of Marion County please call me and lets talk.

A recent example was the go-round between the House and Senate over additional funding for FEMA the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Democrats in the Senate viewed more money for FEMA as an opportunity to affirm their righteous commitment to unlimited spending and vote gathering. They suggested an additional $7 billion for FEMA. To demonstrate their unwavering commitment to frugality, House Republicans suggested $3.7 billion of additional funding for FEMA, with a clause requiring an offset of $1.6 billion of cuts from green energy spending. Verbal salvos were exchanged between the chambers, the best of which came from the Senate Democrats in a few words of feigned innocence: Weve never had to do it this way before. Bunkum! Theyve transferred funds from other sources to FEMA on several occasions. After weeks of Democratic campaigning and liberal editoriwww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 7, 2011 It seems that its becoming a regular occurrence to have something happen that makes me feel old. Of course, maybe thats because I am old. But thats another story. This past Sunday, 60 Minutes, the long-running series, said goodbye to one of its most identifiable personalities, as Andy Rooney signed off for the last time as a regular contributor. Of course, the world regular is vital here. Hell probably be back from time to time. At age 92, he said he wasnt retiring. Writers never retire, he said. And thats a key. He considers himself a writer, which he has done most of his adult life, and not a television personality. He was described as a curmudgeon and the nations grouch-in-chief, and admitted he lived up to that. He said he never signs autographs, and wondered why people would want his name on a piece of paper. He also said that he doesnt like being recognized, and told people if they saw him in a restaurant, just let him eat my dinner. He added that he gets a lot of mail, but answers very few of the letters he receives. Rooney first hit the 60 Minutes airwaves in 1978. His opinions, usually produced in the final few minutes of the show, took on all sorts of causes with no sacred cows. In a clip shown on Sundays show, he wondered out loud about why there was so much cotton placed in the top of pill bottles, and he had the props to prove it. He also took a box of cereal, and compared the size of what was inside to the oversized photos on the outside of the box. The show also displayed some of his more serious moments, including the weekend after the Challenger shuttle disaster, and the show after the Oklahoma City bombing, in which he didnt mince words about what he would do to the bombers. For me, he was the highlight of the show. There were many times I tuned in the first two minutes to see what was coming up, and quite often it didnt impress me. But if the announcer said all this and Andy Rooney, I made sure I watched or taped those last few minutes of the show, just to see what he had to say. CBS never figured out that they were alienating people who like this show by not properly scheduling it when the program wouldnt be delayed by football. So how ironic was it that this final goodbye from Andy Rooney started late, because the Dolphins-Chargers game ran over into the time slot. One last time, it was hard to set the DVR to record Andy Rooney because of football. It will be interesting to follow the ratings course of 60 Minutes, to see if the departure of Andy Rooney will have an effect. I know that for me, it clearly will make a difference.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Congratulations. Even though you may not realize it, youre helping us celebrate a big week throughout our industry. How? By reading a newspaper. This is National Newspaper Week, a yearly event noted by the nations publications as a time to remind people that the best source for local news remains a newspaper. A recent news report indicated that Yahoo is experiencing significant decreases in the time users spend on its sites. The directors of the company were even reported to be considering the sale of parts of the company. The reporter concluded that Yahoo was no longer relevant as many Internet users are not using Yahoo or any of its products. Whether you believe that Yahoo is relevant to you or not, it is interesting to observe such a negative public discussion about a company that just 15 years ago could do no wrong. Many believed that Yahoo had a better future than newspapers. There was the expectation that Yahoo, Microsoft and others would create local online communities where people could find the latest news and information. In case you havent noticed, they werent successful in their attempts to provide local news. In fact, it is likely that any news you find on Yahoo, Google and other sites was probably produced by a newspaper or a newspaper affiliated organization. But that doesnt mean that the way people get their news isnt changing, because it is. Newspapers are still the number one source for local news, although now it is in print AND online. And things will continue to change. We expect that more readers in the future will be reading our stories on their iPad or other tablets and on their smart phones. The next time you attend a local event, look around and you probably wont find a reporter or photographer with a Yahoo, Microsoft or Google press pass. You may not even see people from bigger regional newspapers. But what you will see are representatives from your local newspaper, a newspaper such as ours. But, as a newspaper reader, you probably figured that out already, and it is certainly time to say thank you for reading this newspaper and making us your top source for local news! Breast cancer awareness monthTwo of the most dreaded words in modern day health care, especially for women, are heard far too often: breast cancer. This is the month that were all asked to make sure we keep up the awareness and the fight against this dreaded disease. There are various programs and events designed to help with this awareness, and want everyone to take part. Most importantly, we want people to get examined to make sure that if you should come down with this disease, its early enough to get treatment and survive. So dont put off going to the doctor. Get yourself checked. We also praise those who have survived and are acting as an inspiration to others. We hope that by working together, we can minimize the effects of breast cancer.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, October 7, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, October 7, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... leading non-profit green group concerned about MTR, the Sierra Club, in publishing a report card reviewing 10 of the worlds largest banks in regard to their financing of MTR coal mining projects. The new 2011 version of Policy and Practice takes a look at the MTR-related financing practices of Bank of America, CitiBank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, GE Capital, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, PNC, UBS and Wells Fargo. What did they find? Since January 2010, the 10 banks reviewed have provided upwards of $2.5 billion in loans and bonds to companies practicing MTR. While some of the banksChase, Wells Fargo, PNC, UBS, and Credit Suisseadopted policies limiting their financing of MTR, few actually pulled funding in place from any such activities upon adopting such policies. Citibank, despite announcing publicly in 2009 that it would limit its involvement in MTR, doubled its investments in the business in 2010. RAN and the Sierra Club are also keeping a close eye on UBS which, soon after stating that it needs to be satisfied that the client is committed to reduce over time its exposure to (MTR), went ahead and acted as a paid adviser on the merger of Massey Energy, which operated the West Virginia mine where 29 men died last year, and Alpha Natural Resources. This merger created the largest single MTR company in the country, now responsible for some 25 percent of coal production from MTR mines. The report card grades each bank based on its current position and practice regarding MTR investments, and calls on the banks to strengthen their policies and cease their financial support for coal companies engaging in MTR. The best practice...is a clear exclusion policy on commercial lending and investment banking services for all coal companies who practice mountaintop removal coal extraction, says RAN. RAN and the Sierra Club hope that by exposing the impact these banks are having on the environment through their financing programs, they can help alert the public and policymakers to the need to outlaw MTR coal mining altogether.

EARTHCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 PHOTO BY ILOVEMOUNTAINS.ORGMany major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are blown up to expose the recoverable coal. Despite some banks stated intent to limit such financing, a Sierra Club/Rainforest Action Network report card indicates that few are yet doing what they say. 000977H Join us this Sunday at Faith Presbyterian Church, as we worship our great God together!

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 last day of September was a perfect day for golf. The weather was cooler than usual, sunny, and just a hint of a breeze. The greens were in excellent shape, so no excuses were accepted for scores. The game was slightly different than usual two net scores counted on the par 5s, three net scores on the par 4s, and all four net scores counted on the par 3s. The winners with a score of 182 were Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens and Pat Schiavo. Second with a score of 184 were Ron Tennant, Ralph Lavacca, Dick Feltenberger and John Cerlenko. Third with a score of 187 were Al Prachel, Larry Collins, Bob Gildea and Dick Berbig. Closest to the pin on the par 3s were Ralph Lavacca, Hal Loomis, Art Pruneau and Bob Gildea. October is shaping up to be cool and dry, at least for the first part of the month. Enjoy the golf!

D idn t a report come out recently th at named maj or banks th at were f unding t h is activ ity? S eth J erg ens, N ew Y ork, NY Yes its true that many major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are removed by explosives to expose thin seams of recoverable coal. The wasted earth and other materials are either put back onto the mountain top in an approximation of their original contours, wreaking havoc on local ecosystems and biodiversity, or dumped into neighboring valleys, polluting lakes and streams and jeopardizing water quality for humans and wildlife. According to the nonprofit Rainforest Action Network (RAN), this dumpingespecially throughout Appalachia where MTR is most prevalentundermines the objectives and requirements of the Clean Water Act. The group adds that some 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried or contaminated in the region. The mining destroys Appalachian communities, the health of coalfield residents and any hope for positive economic growth.

Bishop Jr F or more information, call Ray Sargent at 352-857-9099. RIBSC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 1 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Someone from your past could arrive with welcome news concerning your future. Meanwhile, avoid taking sides in a workplace confrontation until you have more facts to go on. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A decision about a relationship could have longerlasting consequences than you might imagine, so be sure of your facts before you act. A trusted friend can help. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A strained relationship could be restored with more personal contact between the two of you. Letting others act as your go-between only adds to the ongoing estrangement. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New facts could mean taking a new path toward a goal youve been hoping to reach. However, be sure all your questions are answered before you undertake to shift directions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good week for all you fine Felines to turn your attention to some important considerations, such as your health, your job situation and the status of important relationships. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid making a quick decision about a matter that needs more study. Keep your mind open for possibilities, even if they dont seem plausible at least not yet. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might welcome the emphasis on openness in relationships that mark this period. But its a good idea to avoid sharing personal secrets with people you hardly know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) There are still some questions that need to be asked and answered before you can feel confident enough to make a potentially life-changing decision. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Some lingering effects from a now largely resolved workplace confrontation could make things difficult for you. Act on this before it becomes serious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You feel youre finally in control of your own life after months of making compromises and concessions you never felt comfortable with. Congratulations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) No sooner do you decide to pass on one job offer than another suddenly turns up. This one might not have everything youre looking for, but its worth checking out. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Congratulations. With Jupiters strong influence dominating this week, dont be surprised to get some good news about a troubling financial matter. BORN THIS WEEK: You are usually kind and loving. But you can be highly critical of those who dont measure up to your high standards. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

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. Complete contest details 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.

Pablo Rivera, 29, Felony violation of probation cocaine-possession. An Ocala woman took down a robbery suspect who tried to give her money to provide him an alibi. The attempted robbery took place on the evening of Oct. 3 near 25th Avenue, when the victim told investigators he was walking away from an ATM and toward his car. The victim said a man later identified as John Ashua Meekin, 25, of Ocala, approached and asked for money. The victim said he didnt have any money and Meekin pulled out a pistol and pointed it at the victim, who then put his car into gear and sped off. The victim pulled away, far enough to watch Meekin take off on a bicycle, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The victim was on the phone with 911 and following Meekin who went down a dead end street. Meekin turned and shot twice at the victim and then Meekin ran into nearby woods. A witness told investigators she was watching the sheriffs office cars going up and down the road, when she was approached by Meekin. Meekin apparently offered the witness one hundred dollars to say that he was with her and the other people nearby, Cochran said. The witness told Meekin no. Meekin then lunged at the witness and she took Meekin to the ground and flagged down a deputy, Cochran said. Meekin was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail with a bond of $50,000.Store burglaryMarion County Sheriffs Office detectives need your help to identify and catch two suspects caught on tape stealing thousands in merchandise and cash.

Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe.

His last day with Marion County was Sept. 30. During my 50 plus years of managing and supervising employees, Marion County has the finest employees that I have ever had the privilege of working with, Thacker said. The citizens are extremely fortunate to have the benefit of their services. Thacker joined Marion County government in 2004 as the countys bureau chief for public works. During his seven-year tenure, he oversaw the countys airport, MSTU, transportation, solid waste and utility operations, and later the building and growth management departments. Under his leadership, the county updated its emergency operations plans and established safety training programs for all departments. Thacker was also instrumental in coordinating the local public works response to the devastating hurricane season of 2004; his work helped the county save taxpayers $29 million by recovering nearly 100 percent of the local funds expended in hurricane recovery activities, more than any other Florida county, through Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursements. In 2009, County Administrator Dr. Lee Niblock promoted Thacker to assistant county administrator. In his new position, Thacker continued to focus on streamlining department activities as well as improving staff productivity and internal communication. I appreciate Larrys contribution to improving Marion County, Niblock said. During his tenure, he contributed greatly to a more efficient organization and more effective services for our citizens. County Engineer Mounir Bouyounes, P.E., will take over Thackers assistant county administrator duties at no additional taxpayer expense.
