BRIEFS Office closed Oct. 28 for move next doorThe office of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger at 8810 S.W. State Road 200 will be closed on Friday, Oct. 28, so that personnel can complete the move to a new office next door. The new address will remain the same, except that the suite number will change from 104 to 103. News deadlines will be early for the Messenger. News deadlines for the Citizen remain the same. Guinn becomes mayorLongtime City Council member Kent Guinn was elected mayor of Ocala on Thursday, handily defeating two challengers. With less than a 10 percent turnout, Guinn took in 52.06 percent of the votes cast, making a runoff unnecessary. Randall Alvord was second with 31 percent, and Rusty Juergens finished third with 16 percent. The election will be certified by the council today. Guinn replaces Randy Ewers, who chose not to run again.

An agreement had supposedly been reached to combine the dispatch services of the county and the city, lessening the need for transferring emergency calls from the original 9-1-1 call-taker, but the city backed out after an emotional meeting in which officials learned that a prominent employee had been told he was losing his job. The county commissioners didnt comment as they accepted a letter from the city negating a previous agreement, but shortly after, under commissioners comments, the subject came up. Chairman Stan McClain noted, We have to continue to work on that government is going to have to change the way it operates. He suggested a joint meeting with the city early next year. We have to continue to try. Commissioner Mike Amsden noted that there was already some common ground on the issues, and he noted examples such as ambulances, animal control, etc. Sometimes passion overlooks common sense of the issue. Commissioner Carl Zalak commented, Its not about us, its about the community. Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who received praise from her fellow commissioners for her efforts, said she would keep working at the merger. I havent given up. In other business, the county delayed an appointment to a housing board because one of the applicants had checked yes on an application where it asked if he had ever been convicted of a felony. The form didnt ask for any more information than that, and commissioners felt they needed more details. The county also set a Scenic Roads ordinance public hearing for Nov. 15. Dispatch merger rejected The retirement of Larry Thacker, assistant county administrator, drew a presentation at Tuesdays County Commission meeting, even though Thacker couldnt attend. On the agenda was a resolution honoring him, but Chairman Stan McClain had another surprise, a framed copy of a South Marion Citizen story of Thackers retirement. The large gift will be given to Thacker as a memento of his days in county government. Thacker honored with Citizen story PHOTO BY LEO DUCHOSSOISFrom the left, representing Ocala Honor Flight: Red Zell, April Adams, Trey Adams, representing Spruce Creek Preserve Dee Winey, Jean Isabelle, Commander of Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club. On Oct. 18, at the annual Spruce Creek Preserve HOA meeting, Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club Commander Jean Isabelle and Dee Winey presented a check for $10,131.43 to Ocala Honor Flight Coordinators Trey Adams, April Adams, and Red Zell. The Honor Flight Network transports World War II veterans Veterans to Washington, D.C., to see their Memorial for which they waited over 60 years. Spruce Creek Preserve will have seven World War II veterans on the Oct. 27 Mission #4. It all began in May with a media article requesting Escorts for the June Ocala Honor Flight. Dee Winey, SCP resident, escorted on the June 14 Honor Flight and experienced the World War II Memorial with 104 veterans and their escorts. This was such a moving experience she approached the Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club to support the October Mission and get as many of our resident World War II veterans signed up for the Mission as possible. The project turned into a community wide event including direct donations from residents, businesses, and friends along with displays and donations accepted at the SR 200 Walmart and Reds Restaurant; and our Preserve Golf Club hosted a special event for Ocala Honor Flight. Our finale was Canteen Night at the Preserve with free desserts followed by live music, entertainment and a Chinese raffle/auction of over 25 items donated by our resident artists and businesses along the SR 200 corridor. Everyone is invited to welcome back all Ocala Honor Flight Veterans on Oct. 27 at the Ocala International Airport. The celebration begins at 8:15 p.m. arrive early and bring your flag. Honor Flight: Preserve raises more than $10,000 Occupy Ocala The national protests being dubbed as Occupy Wall Street spread to downtown Ocala on Saturday as a group of a couple hundred people gathered with signs and stood on the sidewalk, asking passing drivers of vehicles who backed them to honk their horns.

It is not the frontal attack that is bleeding us white, it is through the back door with imports marked Made in China. This countrys manufacturing capacity stocked the shelves and rebuilt many countries after World War II. To add to the drain of our resources we have 761 military bases in 156 countries around the world and we have 3 million plus serving in the military. The defense budget for 2012 is between $1.03 trillion to $1.415 trillion. The federal budget for 2012 indicates a revenue of $2.627 trillion and expenditures of $3.729 trillion showing a deficit of $1.101 trillion. President Reagan said it best. Deficits arent caused by too little taxing, they are caused by too much spending. We have the knowledge and resources to fix the problems but do we have the will? Come along to this meeting. Your opinion is very important. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation toward their needs you may do so through our Secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Remember that we are proud Americans and proud to be Democrats. We look forward to the future with hope and pride in our country. God bless America. Voter registration cards are available, so if you know of anyone who is not registered or wishes to change party affiliation, we are able to make the changes.

Put that surging Arian energy to good use and explore it to your hearts content. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the time to prepare for a career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get those proposals in shape. And dont forget to buff up that Bovine self-confidence. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted Moon Child. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturbing situation. Dont be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Its a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something spontaneous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good week to get advice on your plans. But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or personal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... H ad it not been eclipsed by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the end of World War II, this remarkable rescue story would be well known. Instead, Zuckoff retrieved it from the fog of 65 years and breathed new life into it, making it a gripping page turner. On May 13, 1945, in Dutch New Guinea, GIs bored while awaiting new orders, set out on a sightseeing flight. The group of 24 included pilots, nine WACs, and some enlisted men. Their destination was a hidden valley dubbed Shangri-La in the islands interior. Approaching the site involved a tricky maneuvering through a narrow mountain pass with unusual air drafts. Incredibly, at this point the most experienced pilot leaves the cockpit, turning the plane over to a somewhat green co-pilot. The C -27 crashes and burns in a dense jungle 150 aeronautical miles from the U.S. base. Only three survive a badly burned, beautiful WAC, Margaret Hastings, a young lieutenant whose twin brother perished in the crash, John McCollum, and a severely injured sergeant, Kenneth Decker. Stranded and threatened on all sides by warrior tribes and hostile Japanese hiding in the jungle, it will take every bit of bravery, loyalty, and trust they can summon up in order to survive. A canopy of trees makes the three invisible from the air, so McCollum as the highest-ranking officer orders his charges to trek to a clearing despite their injuries. Its slow going but a wise decision. Planes spot them and start dropping supplies. Landing is no option and neither is helicopter rescue because the mountain air is too thin. Back at the base they work 24/7 on a feasible rescue plan. Then spear-wielding natives appear, hundreds of them, naked except for penis gourds. Still living in the Stone Age they spare the survivors harm, thinking them spirits dropped from the sky. Subsequently, Medics parachute to the injured and paratroopers provide protection. When the rescue plan is finalized, its called the snatch. A glider is put in place in the clearing with a loop attached to the top. Then a C-47 at fifteen hundred feet above the valley floor with a pickup arm hanging below the planes belly grabs the gliders nylon loop and lifts it over the mountains and to safety. A great read. Crash story a good read P W Pat Wellington B OOK MARK armed himself with a cutting instrument and assaulted her. He choked her until she passed out. The suspect was described as 35 to 45 years old, 5-feet-11 to 6-foot-3, heavy set, strawberry blond hair military style or buzz cut, mustache, tattoo on his neck and on both arms, possibly one a rebel flag with an eagle. The victim said there were baby items in the truck. On Oct. 12, a woman, 42, told police she was in the 2200 block of Northwest 7th Street when she was approached by a white male driving a blue or green minivan.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T hree score and six years ago the Public Health Service brought forth upon this nation a dental discovery dedicated to the proposition that all teeth should be treated equally. Medical investigators had observed there was less tooth decay where water contained natural deposits of fluoride. The announced purpose of a national campaign to fluoridate drinking water was to make healthy teeth available to every citizen, especially young people. The safety, effectiveness, and legality of adding fluoride to public water supplies gave birth to a passel of unlicensed medical experts who suggested such dosing might generate terrible outbreaks of glandular disorders, kidney failures, defective immune systems, cancers, allergies, bone deterioration, and stomach distresses, including bloat. After AIDS was discovered, it was added to the list. A few paranoid hysterics suggested fluoridation of water was a communist conspiracy. Ignoring the naysayers and hysterics, in 1945 Grand Rapids, Michigan fluoridated its water and ignited a conflict which persisted for years and spawned a brigade of fluoride opponents. The American Dental Association says fluoride has proven to be the most effective method of preventing tooth decay. Until lately we assumed the fluoride controversy had long since gone to rest and that the accompanying hysterias had been quieted by availability of tranquility medications. One recent morning, after we had scrubbed our upper and lower bridges and had swished with a fluoride rinse, we browsed the daily paper and discovered the Pinellas County commissioners had voted 4 to 3 to unflouridate their drinking water. Around 65 percent of Americans drink fluoridated water many unknowingly. Their blissful consumption has now been disrupted by Pinellas County, and may have re-ignited a national controversy. The Pinellas County vote isnt all the fluoride news. In a followup article Associated Press reported the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service had changed their recommended level of fluoride in pubic water supplies, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has undertaken a review of the maximum milligrams per liter. The nanny state is on full alert. An opposition is also active. We were surprised to learn that a quiet but persistent anti-flouride movement exists under the banner Flouride Action Network. In cases like this were inclined to look to our founders for guidance. George Washington would say: If you had to spend a winter at Valley Forge eating nuts and half-cooked squirrels, you would vote for anything that might spare the next generation the pain and humiliation of uppers and lowers made of hippopotamus ivory on gold plates with springs. Because of his prejudiced view on this issue, we have to ignore Georges opinion. The other founders Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe would say: Unless theres something harmful in the water provided by Mother Nature, government has no authority to alter the liquid on which we depend for our survival and in which we bathe occasionally. Blessed are the founders for their constitutional wisdom. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 T here are a lot of big games in the National Football League each week. Playoff spots are on the line as teams jockey for position in the standings. The Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins game is not one of those that the entire football nation will be watching with anxiety. That, however, doesnt apply to the state of Florida. The DenverMiami game will probably be the most popular in the state next weekend, especially since the Florida Gators have a week off to lick their SEC wounds. The coaching staff at Denver has chosen this week to make Tim Tebow the teams starting quarterback. If you dont know who Tim Tebow is, well, you probably dont watch much football. Tebow graduated from the University of Florida with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the Broncos amid all the skepticism that his throwing motion, among other things, was not NFL caliber. But Denvers previous quarterback, Kyle Orton, was doing so poorly that the job, for now at least, belongs to Tebow. Not only is Tebow starting for the opponent Sunday in Miami, Floridas national champions are being honored. So you know there are going to be Gator fans aplenty in the stadium. With the way the Dolphins have played this year, that might mean a crowd rooting for Denver, more specifically Tebow, this weekend. And another thing making this game more interesting is that the Dolphins are having a major problem ... at the quarterback position. Back when the 2010 draft was held, there were a lot of people in Florida hoping that either Jacksonville or Miami woul draft him (Tampa was pretty well set at the QB spot). That didnt happen, so getting a chance to see Tebow, in his home state, get a big start is a major plus. Im not a huge Gator fan, although some of it has to rub off on you when youve been forcefed Gator news for more than 40 years. I did enjoy watching Tebow, going all the way back to Nease High School in St. Johns County. He seemed like a charismatic leader, and a genuine good guy, and for that reason I was hoping he would make it big in the pros. It hasnt happened yet, but maybe this weekends game will be the first major step for the Florida grad. So come this weekend, Ill be settled down at home watching either the whole game itself or, if our exciting Orlando TV station decides to give us something else, the major highlights on NFL Red Zone. The way Jacksonville and Miami are playing, this could be the biggest game of the year for fans of those two teams (the Bucs of Tampa are in first place).Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

N ew parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccinepreventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.

Fixing the economyAs you know, America is saddled with an economy in shambles: out-ofcontrol spending, excessive debt, and high joblessness. The fixes that our administration previously implemented havent worked. As anticipated, the GOP has rejected the administrations jobs bill; our administrations plan to levy a higher tax on the rich wouldnt generate enough revenue to fix our economy, anyhow. Higher taxation of the rich would only cause them to layoff some workers to compensate for the additional tax causing joblessness to increase even more. People have taken to the streets in hundreds of American cities to protest although most of them cant articulate a compelling reason why presumably, their frustration with the state of our economy and their misconception that the greediness of the very rich is a large part of the problem. Still, no one has been able to come up with a realistic solution to our economic and joblessness crises. Oddly, the solution has been right in front of us for some time: Tax reform! Wait a minute! America is going down the tubes and the best solution to Americas problems is tax reform? Yes, tax reform actually tax replacement will cause a natural redistribution of money, and infuse our economy with an abundant revenue-flow by removing the burden and restrictions of our current tax system. By increasing our revenue-flow, desperately needed jobs will be created. Our economy will be given restored life. Tax replacement can be agreed to and supported by all political ideologies: conservatives, liberals, independents, or whomever. Admittedly, there are those from the left and right who will try to make this a partisan issue; mostly for selfserving reasons. They need to be told that replacement of the IRS income tax system is the one thing that will revitalize the American economy and get Americans back to work. Weve been hearing rumblings of tax reform for years and years. But, aside from the customary political rhetoric, the application of yet another bandage on our tax code, and a lot of empty promises, nothing ever really gets done. At times, it seems that cronyism and good-ole-boy politics mean more than the things that are best for Americans. Fortunately we have people and organizations dedicated to restoring politics to what it should be. But, until we have accomplished that, we will just have to tolerate politics-as-usual. Many people will say that tax reform is not now a priority; creating jobs and fixing the economy are. Again, by implementing tax replacement now these priorities will be fixed. Together we can restore Americas economy and get Americans back to work. Replacement of the IRS tax system is the best way to do it. Joe OHara On Top of the WorldWell, Well, WellThe truth about our differences as Americans is now being shown and told! The majority of Wall Street protesters look like hoodlums, throwing trash wherever they are and even protest against our Capitalistic system. Most have no idea what they are protesting, they are just trying to be the new s hippies. Have you noticed the difference in most of them and the Tea Party rallies where men and women act like gentlemen and ladies, none throwing out trash for others to clean up? Tea Partiers carry patriotic signs that show a genuine love for our country, not the opposite. I was always taught that trash leaves trash. Decent people do NOT litter! Which one do you want to identify with? Think about it! Now we have the racist charges answered in a way even the most left wing liberal should understand. Tea Parties support Herman Cain! The last time I checked he is black, not white. Our dislike of President Obama has never had anything to do with his race, it has to do with his policies. If liberals would examine the direction the Democratic Party is going, they would understand why there is no longer an official Socialist Party nominee. The man who ran on multiple occasions as the Socialist candidate stated that we no longer needed that to occur. Reason given: The Democratic Party has taken up their agenda and plans, moving so far to the left that it is no longer the same party many voted for in the past. He obviously is now a Democrat. The writer of Sounds Good, No Facts, should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable? Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks! If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture? Yes, its time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called Jobs bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep. Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America!

Carla of Carlas Closet supplied the clothing for the fashion show. Bonnie Clark provided the cosmetics for the makeovers. Almost all of her Arbonne products were made in the U.S. of A. Our ladies gave a rousing cheer for that. There were a few of her items that were made in our neighboring Canada. Our models, Leila, Victoria, Holly and Eve all showed multiple outfits while I showed only one. Mine was a cute little number called Zebra. It was a low cut Zebra top (really low) with a black skirt and had a matching clutch. Leila, Eve and I all had a makeover by Lyndy. We have some before and after snaps of that. Arbonne is a Swiss company but all the items are made here of natural materials. All of the cosmetics are not tested on animals. Bonnie Clark is the District Manager.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Two men were arrested Oct. 16 and accused of attempted robbery with a weapon after an incident at the Bank of America, 7975 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. The two suspects were identified as Joshua Van Nelson, 31, of Southwest 138th Street Road, and John Quincy Ruffin, 25, of Citrus Springs. Both are employed as subcontractors with Direct TV. According to the report, deputies responded to the bank at Southwest 80th Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. A woman victim told the call-taker that two men had pepper sprayed her and her friend, then ran through the woods. She said they saw a black pickup truck leaving the area at a high rate of speed, and gave chase. The pickup was reported as heading west on S.R. 200, and a deputy saw both vehicles and made the traffic stop at a car wash across from the Sheriffs Southwest District Office substation. The two men said they had done nothing wrong, and that they carry pepper spray for when they encounter dogs doing their jobs. A K-9 unit traced the men from the drive-up to the spot where the pickup truck was seen leaving at a high rate of speed, and footprints were allegedly matched to one of the mens shoes. The two were taken to the substation, arrested and taken to the county jail. Two jailed for trying to rob people at automated teller Marions Most Wanted Damon Frederick 39, Violation of probation counts 1 and 2, felony fraudulent use of credit card; count 3 fraudulent use of personal identification information.

Countryside PresbyterianCountryside Presbyterian Church, 7768 S.W. Highway200, Ocala is asking each member to bring a friend or neighbor to the 10:30 a.m. worship service on Reformation Sunday, Oct. 30, when we will celebrate our Presbyterian heritage and the sixth anniversary of our magnificent sanctuary. This day commemorates the inception in 1524 of the Reformed Church by Martin Luther, a German Catholic monk who nailed his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg castle church door. It also commemorates the French-born preacher and bible scholar John Calvin, known as the Father of Presbyterianism, who after converting to Protestantism in 1533 fled to Switzerland. Calvin was joined there by the Scottish reformed minister John Knox who eventually returned to Scotland where he founded the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Reformation Day service at Countryside will include the procession of tartans and the playing of bagpipes. We will have an anniversary cake at our coffee hour following the service. The public is invited. For further information, please call the church office at 352-237-4633. Interfaith Alliance The Faith Club, a one hour readers theater performance in which three women a Jew, a Muslim and a Christian discuss their concerns, stereotypes and misunderstandings Just the facts, man Perhaps, it might be useful if the members of The Socialist-Marxist Party picked up a book now, and then. They might just be able to argue on the facts, and not just hot air. May I suggest: Dupes by Paul Kengor; The Liberal Mind by Lyle Rossiter; A Thousand Splendid Sons by Klaled Hossini; Kite Runner by Klaled Hossini; Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane; The Law by Fredric Bastiat; Self Study on Political Islam; The truth about Muhammod by Robert Spencer; One Globalism by George Soros; The Bubble of American Supremacy by George Soros; America for Sale by Jerome R. Corsi, PH.D., Shadow Party, Shadow Government by David Horowitz former Liberal}; Blueprint by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer; 5000 Year Leap; The Writings of Fredric Douglas; The Road to Serfdom by F. A Hayek; Philip Dru Administrator by Edward Mandell House; Plus a few hundred more. Then you might be qualified to state facts. Fact 1. Socialism, and Marxism are so great. Why? Did as many people as could escape from Cuba flee to America for refuge? Why has 25 percent of Mexico fled their country? Why are most doctors in America of foreign descent? Why are citizens worldwide fighting to live in America? Why was the Berlin Wall torn down? Marxism thrown out of Russia? Why would we want either one of these failed systems in America? Give me a logical explanation, not mouth. Just facts, why socialism is right for America. Fact 2. SS and Medicare are bankrupt due to the raid on those funds by the federal government. Where will the replacement money come from? Turnips? We are printing money daily. Money becomes less valued every day? When it reaches zero, what comes next? Where was it stated that the Republican Party is without blame? I will admit to its faults, when will you admit to Democratic (Socialist-Marxist) faults? I am angrier than any liberal about Wall Street. Hedge funds, and derivatives are legal but immoral, and must be gotten rid of, along with the Federal Reserve. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Chuck Schumer are responsible for the Fannie, and Freddie debacle. They must go straight to jail. There are videos of committee meetings showing them poo-pooing the idea of curtailing those sub-prime loans, they would not allow it. Those poor people need homes. Talk about bleeding heart liberals. Soft headed might be more appropriate. Whos paying for that bit of wisdom? If you should decide to pick up a book, pray that not one drop of blood is shed in America, while you read. Socialists are pushing for chaos as their signal to impose martial law, and implement global law. The next day your dollar will be worth nothing ask the Germans}, the Amero is in the wings waiting to replace the dollar (See: America For Sale). Another small item already in place: SDRs, Special Drawing Rights. Any broke half-baked nation, can draw out money from the World Bank, in any amount with no way of ever paying it back. How, long can this go on? (see America For Sale). Globalists have big plans in place to take over the world. Socialists: keep your head in the sand. Good thinking. The Globalists will not find you that way. Now, the Jihadists will probably find you, when they do their beheading ritual. Depends on which faction wins the battle of ideologies. Which do you prefer? Which form of enslavement is your choice? You can deny, deny, deny, til the cows come home, but when it happens, it is too late to pull your head out of the sand. Ask the Germans, Cubans, Venezuelans, North Koreans, and the scores of other enslaved peoples around the world. The world is being transformed, and you are worried about your puny SS and Medicare. There will be none of that after the upheaval. Sorry, Charlie. D.I. Larson Ocala Why the deductibles?Maybe the Wall Street occupiers could get an answer from the CEOs they are harassing on a question that keeps coming to mind. Why do we have deductibles on our auto, home and health insurance policies? After we pay for the insurance, we must pay more before we are eligible to receive its benefits. Insurance is supposed to spread the misfortune of the one over the good fortune of the many. Deductibles are a misfortune for all policy holders but an obvious good fortune for the insurance companies. And why is there no deductible on life insurance? Also, history teaches us that political power only responds to an equal or greater political power. Since our Congress is out of control and nonresponsive to our wishes and needs, maybe the Tea Party could have their few congressional members, as a bloc, file a petition with the Supreme Court. The petition would request the court to review the constiFriday, October 21, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE12 RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION PAGE25 861-Wise (9473) VOTED SOUTH MARION CITIZENS READERS CHOICE #1 USED CAR DEALER Over 50 Years Experience Family Owned & Operated Experience a whole new way to buy a vehicle Like-new cars without the new car price LOCATE PROGRAM, Wise Way can find any vehicle youre looking for!

We welcome all and there are no restrictions as to the number of days per week a member can play so you can come as often as your busy retirement schedule permits. Annual dues are $5 per person and there will be an annual banquet buffet in late winter or early spring at no additional cost to members. Come join us for two hours of great fun, or just come to watch, and you will find yourself hooked on shuffleboard. For more information call the new president, Richard Davis, at 352-8540616.

Lynn Houghton was Closest to the Pin. We are all enjoying the slightly cooler fall weather. Congratulations to this weeks winners. Carol Anns CornerFrank Porterfield, producer of Way Off Broadways In St. Louis At The Fair, wrote me saying, Weve had great audiences; the play has been received beyond what we had hoped for. Weve discussed in the column the talented acting, singing and dancing, the great costumes, the gorgeous sets, etc. After I saw the play it struck me that one has to go back to the very beginning to point out one element of the production that contributed greatly to the wonderful success, namely the choice of play itself. I doubt that very many people, other than perhaps a few theater aficionados, had ever heard of In St. Louis At The Fair. Most folks are familiar with Meet Me in St. Louis, but this play was not as well known The big thing it had going for it was that the characters of the play were perfectly suited to the actors, singers and dancers from Way Off Broadway. So in addition to hearty congratulations to the cast and crew of In St. Louis At the Fair I would also like to congratulate the folks that selected this particular play, a truly inspired choice.

Does this misuse of congressional power reflect the true purpose and intent of our Constitution? Our Equal Powers Doctrine would get a good workout and we may regain control of the 535 self indulging politicians who have captured our Capital. Bill Farthing, Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 S torm clouds were brewing like fresh morning coffee in the normally placid parsonage this past week. I will not say that things got out of hand, which is not to say they did not. I just will not say. I sensed a growing controversy between my wife and myself. Its genesis came about because of some silly mix-up, I assure you. Usually, mix-ups come about because of some misunderstanding and boy, do I sure miss my understanding. I have misplaced mine for so long I honestly cannot remember when I had it last. If my memory serves me, and it has not to date, the last time I had a glimpse of my understanding, I was standing at some altar repeating the words, I do. After that, life has been a glorious blur. The faux pas between us simply was a matter of attitude. My better half took the high road and I, per usual, took the low road. The reason I take the low road is simply that when I fall, and falling for me is inevitable, I do not have far to plummet. Regrettably, this past week we experienced a clash of attitudes. I can sum up my attitude in life quite nicely: Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Who knows? I may forget the whole thing by then, something I am renowned for around the parsonage, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, my lifes companion firmly believes in doing things ahead of time. For instance, by the end of August all her Christmas shopping is finished, wrapped and stored in the garage waiting for the Christmas tree. She has a wonderful knack for planning. What I want to know is how does she know if I am going to be naughty or nice? Usually, I give in to my better half. After all, that is what a great marriage is all about; give and take. As a dutiful husband, I take everything she gives me. This time, however, an important principle was at stake. Some things in life are worth fighting for and this represented one of those times. For years, I have suffered from a condition known as Afternoon Siesta Syndrome. Each afternoon I stretch out for an hour of rest. In that hour, I meditate on some of the more important issues of life. I cannot tell you how many significant problems I have resolved during my daily afternoon forty winks. I say I cant tell you not because I dont want to, but when aroused from my snooze I cant remember the solution. All I know is that somewhere in the recesses of my mind are wonderful resolutions to some of the most intricate problems facing our world today. In this regard, I do not know how often my wife has said to me, You need to see a psychiatrist. This leads me to the subject of our difference this past week. I am a firm believer in the Art of Casual Loafing. Loafing gets such a bad rap because so many amateurs try their hand at it. Let me say right here that loafing is definitely not for the inexperienced. A level of skill and expertise that only comes from diligent practice. Personally, I have invested over 50 years in the Art of Casual Loafing, which qualifies me as some sort of an expert on the subject. I am a proud, card-carrying member of the ACL union. I could have been elected president but we have not got around to elections yet. Many, and when I say many, I am especially including my companion, take loafing as something that comes rather easy. Oh, quite contraire, Mon Frre. Nothing could be further from the truth. My spouse thinks loafing is a tragic waste of time. She thinks things need doing in a timely fashion, like right now. The garbage must be taken out right now. The backyard needs mowing right now. The groceries in the back of the car need brought in right now. A person can take this right now business too far, if you ask me. I like to take things a little more casual than that. This right now hang-up can create some serious stress in relationships; especially between hers and mine. Theres no time like the present, my wife often tells me with a look in her eye defying me not to do what she just requested. To her, right now is very important. When I want to resolve a difficulty, I resort to the Bible. This was no exception. Much to my amazement, the word now occurs in the Bible 1,356 times, which is rather impressive. I never thought of it before. What I discovered startled me. I had to admit that in certain things my dear wife is correct. Some things must be done right now. Two Bible verses emphasize the importance of right now. In the book of Isaiah, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). Then, in the New Testament behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). Right now is the best time to address your relationship with Jesus Christ.

O n this day in 1783 Piltre de Rozier made a free flight in a balloon, reaching a peak altitude of about 3,000 feet and traveling over 5 miles in 20 minutes. Pun Alley celebrates with its own hot air to raise some balloons and hopefully some smiles. Airborne A man flying in a hot air balloon was lost. When he spotted a man below, he lowered the balloon and shouted, Excuse me, can you tell me where I am? The man below said, Yes, youre in a hot air balloon, hovering thirty feet above this field. You must work in engineering, replied the balloonist. I do, the man said. How did you know? Well, said the balloonist, Everything you have told me is technically correct, but its no practical use to anyone. The man below said, You must be a corporate manager. I am, replied the balloonist. How did you know? Well, said the man, you dont know where you are or where youre going, but you expect me to be able to help. You have the same problem you had before we met, but now its my fault. Not high enough At a circus festival a guy in bad clown makeup was creating intricate balloon animals. He was in the middle of twisting something together when a little girl asked, What are you making? He sighed, and said, Minimum wage. Higher Years ago when I took Ruth to a restaurant for her birthday, they would attach several balloons to her hair that would cause her locks to float in the air. The last time I took her there was a charge for $2.50 for the balloons on my bill. They claim it was necessary because of inflation. Popped balloonsThe lady was charged with public drunkenness after failing a roadside sobriety test. Actually she passed, but then made the mistake of making a giraffe out of the balloon. The best dog in the world is the hot dog. It feeds the hand that bites it. The balloon makers formed a union because their work was rapidly expanding. When my kid does something wrong, I ground him. But the real punishment comes when I connect him to the positive and negative wires. Hot air balloons are male because to get it to go anywhere you have to light a fire under it and, of course, theres the hot air part. Todays politicians should do two terms one in office and one in jail. They make a perfect couple. He sells balloons for a living, and shes full of hot air. The pelican stuck his head into the light socket and got an electric bill. More hot air A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. People describing their ailments to the doctor constantly interrupted them. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when youre out of the office? I give it to them, replied the lawyer, and then I send them a bill. The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.Ping-pong A man accidentally swallowed a ping-pong ball and was rushed into surgery for its removal. The patient insisted on having only a local anesthetic so he could watch the operation. He winced a little when the first incision was made, but he didnt feel it, nor did he feel the next cut or the next. However, he become alarmed at the number of incisions, as the surgeon cut here and there, in what seemed a rather random manner. Why do you have to cut in so many places? he asked, they dont seem to be consistent. Well, replied the surgeon, cutting away, thats the way the ball bounces! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Lots of hot air on this day in Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.com Visiting Angels will hold free confidential memory screenings as part of National Memory Screening Day, an annual initiative of the Alzheimers Foundation of America (AFA) to promote proper detection of memory problems. The screenings will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the OTOW Circle Square Commons area in the Visiting Angels establishment, located at 8405 S.W. 80th St., Suite 14. It is estimated that as many as 5.1 million Americans have Alzheimers disease, and the number is escalating as the first baby boomers began turning age 65 this year. Advanced age is the greatest risk factor, with the incidence of the disease doubling every five years between the ages of 65 and 95. November is National Alzheimers Disease Awareness Month, and this years screenings mark the ninth annual National Memory Screening Day to take place (see www.nationalmemoryscreening.or g for further information). These screenings serve as a starting point for discussions about memory concerns and lifestyle changes that may help people as they age. A memory screening averages five to 10 minutes and consists of questions and tasks to assess memory. The screening is a safe, cost effective intervention and when indicated, one can be directed to appropriate clinical resources. Please note that these screenings do not diagnose any illness; they simply indicate whether someone should pursue a follow-up medical exam. It is estimated that missed diagnoses of Alzheimers or dementia may be as high as 90 percent. Please take advantage of this free screening. The Alzheimers Foundation of America is a leading national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. It is focused on the care for individuals with Alzheimers disease and related illnesses and upon their families. For further information, call 866-AFA8484 or visit www.alzfdn.org.Entertainment Group This is the last call for the few remaining tickets for the Neil Diamond tribute Diamond Then and Now show Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., presented by Drs. Challa and Kandru. On Nov. 26 at 7 p.m., the Entertainment Group kicks off the holiday season with Indianas Marlin Brothers presentation of Christmas and a Whole Lot more performance. The performance will take place in the ballroom at Deluca Toyota. The Marlins are very talented singers and musicians who have performed at OTOW before a full house, and their show is one of the most requested for a return performance to the OTOW stage. Their shows include music from such diversified artists as Glen Miller, Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys, and more. Tickets go on sale Oct. 3 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week from 8:30 to 10 a.m. in the ballroom of the H & R Building. Tickets cost $8 for general admission and $10 for reserved seating, with a maximum of four tickets per purchase for residents in all OTOW communities and Indigo East. The group wishes to express their gratitude to Frank Deluca for presenting the Marlin Brothers show for a ticket price that costs less than the price of a movie and a box of popcorn.

If you supported a participant in previous years, get in touch with them now and let them know you are behind them again. Pledge forms will be included in the November Oak Run Newsletter. We hope to raise enough to have another room at Legacy House. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways play is over, the scenery and the props have been returned to the warehouse but the public acclaim received will stay with us forever. Oak Run audiences just cant be beat. A cast and crew for one of these plays put in an amazing amount of time, hard work and dedication and their only reward is the pat on the back they receive from an audience at the conclusion of a play. We noted in a recent letter to the editor in the Star Banner, the writer expressing disappointment at the audience recently at the Ocala Civic Theatre, whereby the cast was assembled in the lobby of the theater and the audience passed out totally ignoring the gathered cast. This was not the case in Palm Grove after each of our performances. The audiences gathered around our cast in what you could best describe as a love fest. It makes you proud to see the appreciation expressed. Following the Sunday performance we gathered for what we call an After Glow Party and it certainly was, a fitting farewell to one another after putting away the tap shoes and grease paint to rise again another day.Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Annual health fair to take place Thursday, Oct. 27 O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE16 Wickedly Wonderful Werewolf PopsMakes about 8 pops Round Cookie Pop Pan 2 tablespoons margarine or butter 2 cups miniature marshmallows 3 cups crisp chocolatecoated rice cereal 8 8-inch Cookie Sticks Dark Cocoa Candy Melts Yellow Candy Melts Brown candy-coated chocolates Candy corn Spray Round Cookie Pop Pan and spatula or wooden spoon with vegetable pan spray.

If you supported a participant in previous years, get in touch with them now and let them know you are behind them again. Pledge forms will be included in the November Oak Run Newsletter. We hope to raise enough to have another room at Legacy House. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways play is over, the scenery and the props have been returned to the warehouse but the public acclaim received will stay with us forever. Oak Run audiences just cant be beat. A cast and crew for one of these plays put in an amazing amount of time, hard work and dedication and their only reward is the pat on the back they receive from an audience at the conclusion of a play. We noted in a recent letter to the editor in the Star Banner, the writer expressing disappointment at the audience recently at the Ocala Civic Theatre, whereby the cast was assembled in the lobby of the theater and the audience passed out totally ignoring the gathered cast. This was not the case in Palm Grove after each of our performances. The audiences gathered around our cast in what you could best describe as a love fest. It makes you proud to see the appreciation expressed. Following the Sunday performance we gathered for what we call an After Glow Party and it certainly was, a fitting farewell to one another after putting away the tap shoes and grease paint to rise again another day.Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Annual health fair to take place Thursday, Oct. 27 O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE16 Wickedly Wonderful Werewolf PopsMakes about 8 pops Round Cookie Pop Pan 2 tablespoons margarine or butter 2 cups miniature marshmallows 3 cups crisp chocolatecoated rice cereal 8 8-inch Cookie Sticks Dark Cocoa Candy Melts Yellow Candy Melts Brown candy-coated chocolates Candy corn Spray Round Cookie Pop Pan and spatula or wooden spoon with vegetable pan spray.

O n this day in 1783 Piltre de Rozier made a free flight in a balloon, reaching a peak altitude of about 3,000 feet and traveling over 5 miles in 20 minutes. Pun Alley celebrates with its own hot air to raise some balloons and hopefully some smiles. Airborne A man flying in a hot air balloon was lost. When he spotted a man below, he lowered the balloon and shouted, Excuse me, can you tell me where I am? The man below said, Yes, youre in a hot air balloon, hovering thirty feet above this field. You must work in engineering, replied the balloonist. I do, the man said. How did you know? Well, said the balloonist, Everything you have told me is technically correct, but its no practical use to anyone. The man below said, You must be a corporate manager. I am, replied the balloonist. How did you know? Well, said the man, you dont know where you are or where youre going, but you expect me to be able to help. You have the same problem you had before we met, but now its my fault. Not high enough At a circus festival a guy in bad clown makeup was creating intricate balloon animals. He was in the middle of twisting something together when a little girl asked, What are you making? He sighed, and said, Minimum wage. Higher Years ago when I took Ruth to a restaurant for her birthday, they would attach several balloons to her hair that would cause her locks to float in the air. The last time I took her there was a charge for $2.50 for the balloons on my bill. They claim it was necessary because of inflation. Popped balloonsThe lady was charged with public drunkenness after failing a roadside sobriety test. Actually she passed, but then made the mistake of making a giraffe out of the balloon. The best dog in the world is the hot dog. It feeds the hand that bites it. The balloon makers formed a union because their work was rapidly expanding. When my kid does something wrong, I ground him. But the real punishment comes when I connect him to the positive and negative wires. Hot air balloons are male because to get it to go anywhere you have to light a fire under it and, of course, theres the hot air part. Todays politicians should do two terms one in office and one in jail. They make a perfect couple. He sells balloons for a living, and shes full of hot air. The pelican stuck his head into the light socket and got an electric bill. More hot air A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. People describing their ailments to the doctor constantly interrupted them. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when youre out of the office? I give it to them, replied the lawyer, and then I send them a bill. The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.Ping-pong A man accidentally swallowed a ping-pong ball and was rushed into surgery for its removal. The patient insisted on having only a local anesthetic so he could watch the operation. He winced a little when the first incision was made, but he didnt feel it, nor did he feel the next cut or the next. However, he become alarmed at the number of incisions, as the surgeon cut here and there, in what seemed a rather random manner. Why do you have to cut in so many places? he asked, they dont seem to be consistent. Well, replied the surgeon, cutting away, thats the way the ball bounces! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Lots of hot air on this day in Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.com Visiting Angels will hold free confidential memory screenings as part of National Memory Screening Day, an annual initiative of the Alzheimers Foundation of America (AFA) to promote proper detection of memory problems. The screenings will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the OTOW Circle Square Commons area in the Visiting Angels establishment, located at 8405 S.W. 80th St., Suite 14. It is estimated that as many as 5.1 million Americans have Alzheimers disease, and the number is escalating as the first baby boomers began turning age 65 this year. Advanced age is the greatest risk factor, with the incidence of the disease doubling every five years between the ages of 65 and 95. November is National Alzheimers Disease Awareness Month, and this years screenings mark the ninth annual National Memory Screening Day to take place (see www.nationalmemoryscreening.or g for further information). These screenings serve as a starting point for discussions about memory concerns and lifestyle changes that may help people as they age. A memory screening averages five to 10 minutes and consists of questions and tasks to assess memory. The screening is a safe, cost effective intervention and when indicated, one can be directed to appropriate clinical resources. Please note that these screenings do not diagnose any illness; they simply indicate whether someone should pursue a follow-up medical exam. It is estimated that missed diagnoses of Alzheimers or dementia may be as high as 90 percent. Please take advantage of this free screening. The Alzheimers Foundation of America is a leading national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. It is focused on the care for individuals with Alzheimers disease and related illnesses and upon their families. For further information, call 866-AFA8484 or visit www.alzfdn.org.Entertainment Group This is the last call for the few remaining tickets for the Neil Diamond tribute Diamond Then and Now show Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., presented by Drs. Challa and Kandru. On Nov. 26 at 7 p.m., the Entertainment Group kicks off the holiday season with Indianas Marlin Brothers presentation of Christmas and a Whole Lot more performance. The performance will take place in the ballroom at Deluca Toyota. The Marlins are very talented singers and musicians who have performed at OTOW before a full house, and their show is one of the most requested for a return performance to the OTOW stage. Their shows include music from such diversified artists as Glen Miller, Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys, and more. Tickets go on sale Oct. 3 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week from 8:30 to 10 a.m. in the ballroom of the H & R Building. Tickets cost $8 for general admission and $10 for reserved seating, with a maximum of four tickets per purchase for residents in all OTOW communities and Indigo East. The group wishes to express their gratitude to Frank Deluca for presenting the Marlin Brothers show for a ticket price that costs less than the price of a movie and a box of popcorn.

Carol Anns CornerFrank Porterfield, producer of Way Off Broadways In St. Louis At The Fair, wrote me saying, Weve had great audiences; the play has been received beyond what we had hoped for. Weve discussed in the column the talented acting, singing and dancing, the great costumes, the gorgeous sets, etc. After I saw the play it struck me that one has to go back to the very beginning to point out one element of the production that contributed greatly to the wonderful success, namely the choice of play itself. I doubt that very many people, other than perhaps a few theater aficionados, had ever heard of In St. Louis At The Fair. Most folks are familiar with Meet Me in St. Louis, but this play was not as well known The big thing it had going for it was that the characters of the play were perfectly suited to the actors, singers and dancers from Way Off Broadway. So in addition to hearty congratulations to the cast and crew of In St. Louis At the Fair I would also like to congratulate the folks that selected this particular play, a truly inspired choice.

Does this misuse of congressional power reflect the true purpose and intent of our Constitution? Our Equal Powers Doctrine would get a good workout and we may regain control of the 535 self indulging politicians who have captured our Capital. Bill Farthing, Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 S torm clouds were brewing like fresh morning coffee in the normally placid parsonage this past week. I will not say that things got out of hand, which is not to say they did not. I just will not say. I sensed a growing controversy between my wife and myself. Its genesis came about because of some silly mix-up, I assure you. Usually, mix-ups come about because of some misunderstanding and boy, do I sure miss my understanding. I have misplaced mine for so long I honestly cannot remember when I had it last. If my memory serves me, and it has not to date, the last time I had a glimpse of my understanding, I was standing at some altar repeating the words, I do. After that, life has been a glorious blur. The faux pas between us simply was a matter of attitude. My better half took the high road and I, per usual, took the low road. The reason I take the low road is simply that when I fall, and falling for me is inevitable, I do not have far to plummet. Regrettably, this past week we experienced a clash of attitudes. I can sum up my attitude in life quite nicely: Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Who knows? I may forget the whole thing by then, something I am renowned for around the parsonage, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, my lifes companion firmly believes in doing things ahead of time. For instance, by the end of August all her Christmas shopping is finished, wrapped and stored in the garage waiting for the Christmas tree. She has a wonderful knack for planning. What I want to know is how does she know if I am going to be naughty or nice? Usually, I give in to my better half. After all, that is what a great marriage is all about; give and take. As a dutiful husband, I take everything she gives me. This time, however, an important principle was at stake. Some things in life are worth fighting for and this represented one of those times. For years, I have suffered from a condition known as Afternoon Siesta Syndrome. Each afternoon I stretch out for an hour of rest. In that hour, I meditate on some of the more important issues of life. I cannot tell you how many significant problems I have resolved during my daily afternoon forty winks. I say I cant tell you not because I dont want to, but when aroused from my snooze I cant remember the solution. All I know is that somewhere in the recesses of my mind are wonderful resolutions to some of the most intricate problems facing our world today. In this regard, I do not know how often my wife has said to me, You need to see a psychiatrist. This leads me to the subject of our difference this past week. I am a firm believer in the Art of Casual Loafing. Loafing gets such a bad rap because so many amateurs try their hand at it. Let me say right here that loafing is definitely not for the inexperienced. A level of skill and expertise that only comes from diligent practice. Personally, I have invested over 50 years in the Art of Casual Loafing, which qualifies me as some sort of an expert on the subject. I am a proud, card-carrying member of the ACL union. I could have been elected president but we have not got around to elections yet. Many, and when I say many, I am especially including my companion, take loafing as something that comes rather easy. Oh, quite contraire, Mon Frre. Nothing could be further from the truth. My spouse thinks loafing is a tragic waste of time. She thinks things need doing in a timely fashion, like right now. The garbage must be taken out right now. The backyard needs mowing right now. The groceries in the back of the car need brought in right now. A person can take this right now business too far, if you ask me. I like to take things a little more casual than that. This right now hang-up can create some serious stress in relationships; especially between hers and mine. Theres no time like the present, my wife often tells me with a look in her eye defying me not to do what she just requested. To her, right now is very important. When I want to resolve a difficulty, I resort to the Bible. This was no exception. Much to my amazement, the word now occurs in the Bible 1,356 times, which is rather impressive. I never thought of it before. What I discovered startled me. I had to admit that in certain things my dear wife is correct. Some things must be done right now. Two Bible verses emphasize the importance of right now. In the book of Isaiah, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). Then, in the New Testament behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). Right now is the best time to address your relationship with Jesus Christ.

This day commemorates the inception in 1524 of the Reformed Church by Martin Luther, a German Catholic monk who nailed his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg castle church door. It also commemorates the French-born preacher and bible scholar John Calvin, known as the Father of Presbyterianism, who after converting to Protestantism in 1533 fled to Switzerland. Calvin was joined there by the Scottish reformed minister John Knox who eventually returned to Scotland where he founded the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Reformation Day service at Countryside will include the procession of tartans and the playing of bagpipes. We will have an anniversary cake at our coffee hour following the service. The public is invited. For further information, please call the church office at 352-237-4633. Interfaith Alliance The Faith Club, a one hour readers theater performance in which three women a Jew, a Muslim and a Christian discuss their concerns, stereotypes and misunderstandings Just the facts, man Perhaps, it might be useful if the members of The Socialist-Marxist Party picked up a book now, and then. They might just be able to argue on the facts, and not just hot air. May I suggest: Dupes by Paul Kengor; The Liberal Mind by Lyle Rossiter; A Thousand Splendid Sons by Klaled Hossini; Kite Runner by Klaled Hossini; Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane; The Law by Fredric Bastiat; Self Study on Political Islam; The truth about Muhammod by Robert Spencer; One Globalism by George Soros; The Bubble of American Supremacy by George Soros; America for Sale by Jerome R. Corsi, PH.D., Shadow Party, Shadow Government by David Horowitz former Liberal}; Blueprint by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer; 5000 Year Leap; The Writings of Fredric Douglas; The Road to Serfdom by F. A Hayek; Philip Dru Administrator by Edward Mandell House; Plus a few hundred more. Then you might be qualified to state facts. Fact 1. Socialism, and Marxism are so great. Why? Did as many people as could escape from Cuba flee to America for refuge? Why has 25 percent of Mexico fled their country? Why are most doctors in America of foreign descent? Why are citizens worldwide fighting to live in America? Why was the Berlin Wall torn down? Marxism thrown out of Russia? Why would we want either one of these failed systems in America? Give me a logical explanation, not mouth. Just facts, why socialism is right for America. Fact 2. SS and Medicare are bankrupt due to the raid on those funds by the federal government. Where will the replacement money come from? Turnips? We are printing money daily. Money becomes less valued every day? When it reaches zero, what comes next? Where was it stated that the Republican Party is without blame? I will admit to its faults, when will you admit to Democratic (Socialist-Marxist) faults? I am angrier than any liberal about Wall Street. Hedge funds, and derivatives are legal but immoral, and must be gotten rid of, along with the Federal Reserve. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Chuck Schumer are responsible for the Fannie, and Freddie debacle. They must go straight to jail. There are videos of committee meetings showing them poo-pooing the idea of curtailing those sub-prime loans, they would not allow it. Those poor people need homes. Talk about bleeding heart liberals. Soft headed might be more appropriate. Whos paying for that bit of wisdom? If you should decide to pick up a book, pray that not one drop of blood is shed in America, while you read. Socialists are pushing for chaos as their signal to impose martial law, and implement global law. The next day your dollar will be worth nothing ask the Germans}, the Amero is in the wings waiting to replace the dollar (See: America For Sale). Another small item already in place: SDRs, Special Drawing Rights. Any broke half-baked nation, can draw out money from the World Bank, in any amount with no way of ever paying it back. How, long can this go on? (see America For Sale). Globalists have big plans in place to take over the world. Socialists: keep your head in the sand. Good thinking. The Globalists will not find you that way. Now, the Jihadists will probably find you, when they do their beheading ritual. Depends on which faction wins the battle of ideologies. Which do you prefer? Which form of enslavement is your choice? You can deny, deny, deny, til the cows come home, but when it happens, it is too late to pull your head out of the sand. Ask the Germans, Cubans, Venezuelans, North Koreans, and the scores of other enslaved peoples around the world. The world is being transformed, and you are worried about your puny SS and Medicare. There will be none of that after the upheaval. Sorry, Charlie. D.I. Larson Ocala Why the deductibles?Maybe the Wall Street occupiers could get an answer from the CEOs they are harassing on a question that keeps coming to mind. Why do we have deductibles on our auto, home and health insurance policies? After we pay for the insurance, we must pay more before we are eligible to receive its benefits. Insurance is supposed to spread the misfortune of the one over the good fortune of the many. Deductibles are a misfortune for all policy holders but an obvious good fortune for the insurance companies. And why is there no deductible on life insurance? Also, history teaches us that political power only responds to an equal or greater political power. Since our Congress is out of control and nonresponsive to our wishes and needs, maybe the Tea Party could have their few congressional members, as a bloc, file a petition with the Supreme Court. The petition would request the court to review the constiFriday, October 21, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE12 RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION PAGE25 861-Wise (9473) VOTED SOUTH MARION CITIZENS READERS CHOICE #1 USED CAR DEALER Over 50 Years Experience Family Owned & Operated Experience a whole new way to buy a vehicle Like-new cars without the new car price LOCATE PROGRAM, Wise Way can find any vehicle youre looking for!

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Two men were arrested Oct. 16 and accused of attempted robbery with a weapon after an incident at the Bank of America, 7975 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. The two suspects were identified as Joshua Van Nelson, 31, of Southwest 138th Street Road, and John Quincy Ruffin, 25, of Citrus Springs. Both are employed as subcontractors with Direct TV. According to the report, deputies responded to the bank at Southwest 80th Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. A woman victim told the call-taker that two men had pepper sprayed her and her friend, then ran through the woods. She said they saw a black pickup truck leaving the area at a high rate of speed, and gave chase. The pickup was reported as heading west on S.R. 200, and a deputy saw both vehicles and made the traffic stop at a car wash across from the Sheriffs Southwest District Office substation. The two men said they had done nothing wrong, and that they carry pepper spray for when they encounter dogs doing their jobs. A K-9 unit traced the men from the drive-up to the spot where the pickup truck was seen leaving at a high rate of speed, and footprints were allegedly matched to one of the mens shoes. The two were taken to the substation, arrested and taken to the county jail. Two jailed for trying to rob people at automated teller Marions Most Wanted Damon Frederick 39, Violation of probation counts 1 and 2, felony fraudulent use of credit card; count 3 fraudulent use of personal identification information.

Fixing the economyAs you know, America is saddled with an economy in shambles: out-ofcontrol spending, excessive debt, and high joblessness. The fixes that our administration previously implemented havent worked. As anticipated, the GOP has rejected the administrations jobs bill; our administrations plan to levy a higher tax on the rich wouldnt generate enough revenue to fix our economy, anyhow. Higher taxation of the rich would only cause them to layoff some workers to compensate for the additional tax causing joblessness to increase even more. People have taken to the streets in hundreds of American cities to protest although most of them cant articulate a compelling reason why presumably, their frustration with the state of our economy and their misconception that the greediness of the very rich is a large part of the problem. Still, no one has been able to come up with a realistic solution to our economic and joblessness crises. Oddly, the solution has been right in front of us for some time: Tax reform! Wait a minute! America is going down the tubes and the best solution to Americas problems is tax reform? Yes, tax reform actually tax replacement will cause a natural redistribution of money, and infuse our economy with an abundant revenue-flow by removing the burden and restrictions of our current tax system. By increasing our revenue-flow, desperately needed jobs will be created. Our economy will be given restored life. Tax replacement can be agreed to and supported by all political ideologies: conservatives, liberals, independents, or whomever. Admittedly, there are those from the left and right who will try to make this a partisan issue; mostly for selfserving reasons. They need to be told that replacement of the IRS income tax system is the one thing that will revitalize the American economy and get Americans back to work. Weve been hearing rumblings of tax reform for years and years. But, aside from the customary political rhetoric, the application of yet another bandage on our tax code, and a lot of empty promises, nothing ever really gets done. At times, it seems that cronyism and good-ole-boy politics mean more than the things that are best for Americans. Fortunately we have people and organizations dedicated to restoring politics to what it should be. But, until we have accomplished that, we will just have to tolerate politics-as-usual. Many people will say that tax reform is not now a priority; creating jobs and fixing the economy are. Again, by implementing tax replacement now these priorities will be fixed. Together we can restore Americas economy and get Americans back to work. Replacement of the IRS tax system is the best way to do it. Joe OHara On Top of the WorldWell, Well, WellThe truth about our differences as Americans is now being shown and told! The majority of Wall Street protesters look like hoodlums, throwing trash wherever they are and even protest against our Capitalistic system. Most have no idea what they are protesting, they are just trying to be the new s hippies. Have you noticed the difference in most of them and the Tea Party rallies where men and women act like gentlemen and ladies, none throwing out trash for others to clean up? Tea Partiers carry patriotic signs that show a genuine love for our country, not the opposite. I was always taught that trash leaves trash. Decent people do NOT litter! Which one do you want to identify with? Think about it! Now we have the racist charges answered in a way even the most left wing liberal should understand. Tea Parties support Herman Cain! The last time I checked he is black, not white. Our dislike of President Obama has never had anything to do with his race, it has to do with his policies. If liberals would examine the direction the Democratic Party is going, they would understand why there is no longer an official Socialist Party nominee. The man who ran on multiple occasions as the Socialist candidate stated that we no longer needed that to occur. Reason given: The Democratic Party has taken up their agenda and plans, moving so far to the left that it is no longer the same party many voted for in the past. He obviously is now a Democrat. The writer of Sounds Good, No Facts, should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable? Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks! If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture? Yes, its time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called Jobs bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep. Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America!

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T hree score and six years ago the Public Health Service brought forth upon this nation a dental discovery dedicated to the proposition that all teeth should be treated equally. Medical investigators had observed there was less tooth decay where water contained natural deposits of fluoride. The announced purpose of a national campaign to fluoridate drinking water was to make healthy teeth available to every citizen, especially young people. The safety, effectiveness, and legality of adding fluoride to public water supplies gave birth to a passel of unlicensed medical experts who suggested such dosing might generate terrible outbreaks of glandular disorders, kidney failures, defective immune systems, cancers, allergies, bone deterioration, and stomach distresses, including bloat. After AIDS was discovered, it was added to the list. A few paranoid hysterics suggested fluoridation of water was a communist conspiracy. Ignoring the naysayers and hysterics, in 1945 Grand Rapids, Michigan fluoridated its water and ignited a conflict which persisted for years and spawned a brigade of fluoride opponents. The American Dental Association says fluoride has proven to be the most effective method of preventing tooth decay. Until lately we assumed the fluoride controversy had long since gone to rest and that the accompanying hysterias had been quieted by availability of tranquility medications. One recent morning, after we had scrubbed our upper and lower bridges and had swished with a fluoride rinse, we browsed the daily paper and discovered the Pinellas County commissioners had voted 4 to 3 to unflouridate their drinking water. Around 65 percent of Americans drink fluoridated water many unknowingly. Their blissful consumption has now been disrupted by Pinellas County, and may have re-ignited a national controversy. The Pinellas County vote isnt all the fluoride news. In a followup article Associated Press reported the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service had changed their recommended level of fluoride in pubic water supplies, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has undertaken a review of the maximum milligrams per liter. The nanny state is on full alert. An opposition is also active. We were surprised to learn that a quiet but persistent anti-flouride movement exists under the banner Flouride Action Network. In cases like this were inclined to look to our founders for guidance. George Washington would say: If you had to spend a winter at Valley Forge eating nuts and half-cooked squirrels, you would vote for anything that might spare the next generation the pain and humiliation of uppers and lowers made of hippopotamus ivory on gold plates with springs. Because of his prejudiced view on this issue, we have to ignore Georges opinion. The other founders Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe would say: Unless theres something harmful in the water provided by Mother Nature, government has no authority to alter the liquid on which we depend for our survival and in which we bathe occasionally. Blessed are the founders for their constitutional wisdom. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 T here are a lot of big games in the National Football League each week. Playoff spots are on the line as teams jockey for position in the standings. The Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins game is not one of those that the entire football nation will be watching with anxiety. That, however, doesnt apply to the state of Florida. The DenverMiami game will probably be the most popular in the state next weekend, especially since the Florida Gators have a week off to lick their SEC wounds. The coaching staff at Denver has chosen this week to make Tim Tebow the teams starting quarterback. If you dont know who Tim Tebow is, well, you probably dont watch much football. Tebow graduated from the University of Florida with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the Broncos amid all the skepticism that his throwing motion, among other things, was not NFL caliber. But Denvers previous quarterback, Kyle Orton, was doing so poorly that the job, for now at least, belongs to Tebow. Not only is Tebow starting for the opponent Sunday in Miami, Floridas national champions are being honored. So you know there are going to be Gator fans aplenty in the stadium. With the way the Dolphins have played this year, that might mean a crowd rooting for Denver, more specifically Tebow, this weekend. And another thing making this game more interesting is that the Dolphins are having a major problem ... at the quarterback position. Back when the 2010 draft was held, there were a lot of people in Florida hoping that either Jacksonville or Miami woul draft him (Tampa was pretty well set at the QB spot). That didnt happen, so getting a chance to see Tebow, in his home state, get a big start is a major plus. Im not a huge Gator fan, although some of it has to rub off on you when youve been forcefed Gator news for more than 40 years. I did enjoy watching Tebow, going all the way back to Nease High School in St. Johns County. He seemed like a charismatic leader, and a genuine good guy, and for that reason I was hoping he would make it big in the pros. It hasnt happened yet, but maybe this weekends game will be the first major step for the Florida grad. So come this weekend, Ill be settled down at home watching either the whole game itself or, if our exciting Orlando TV station decides to give us something else, the major highlights on NFL Red Zone. The way Jacksonville and Miami are playing, this could be the biggest game of the year for fans of those two teams (the Bucs of Tampa are in first place).Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

N ew parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccinepreventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.

Mary Blocher, minister of the Unity Church in Leesburg, performs as co-author Suzanne Oliver, a Christian woman; and Phyllis Lowe, member of Temple Shalom in The Villages, portrays the Jewish co-author, Priscilla Warner.

H ad it not been eclipsed by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the end of World War II, this remarkable rescue story would be well known. Instead, Zuckoff retrieved it from the fog of 65 years and breathed new life into it, making it a gripping page turner. On May 13, 1945, in Dutch New Guinea, GIs bored while awaiting new orders, set out on a sightseeing flight. The group of 24 included pilots, nine WACs, and some enlisted men. Their destination was a hidden valley dubbed Shangri-La in the islands interior. Approaching the site involved a tricky maneuvering through a narrow mountain pass with unusual air drafts. Incredibly, at this point the most experienced pilot leaves the cockpit, turning the plane over to a somewhat green co-pilot. The C -27 crashes and burns in a dense jungle 150 aeronautical miles from the U.S. base. Only three survive a badly burned, beautiful WAC, Margaret Hastings, a young lieutenant whose twin brother perished in the crash, John McCollum, and a severely injured sergeant, Kenneth Decker. Stranded and threatened on all sides by warrior tribes and hostile Japanese hiding in the jungle, it will take every bit of bravery, loyalty, and trust they can summon up in order to survive. A canopy of trees makes the three invisible from the air, so McCollum as the highest-ranking officer orders his charges to trek to a clearing despite their injuries. Its slow going but a wise decision. Planes spot them and start dropping supplies. Landing is no option and neither is helicopter rescue because the mountain air is too thin. Back at the base they work 24/7 on a feasible rescue plan. Then spear-wielding natives appear, hundreds of them, naked except for penis gourds. Still living in the Stone Age they spare the survivors harm, thinking them spirits dropped from the sky. Subsequently, Medics parachute to the injured and paratroopers provide protection. When the rescue plan is finalized, its called the snatch. A glider is put in place in the clearing with a loop attached to the top. Then a C-47 at fifteen hundred feet above the valley floor with a pickup arm hanging below the planes belly grabs the gliders nylon loop and lifts it over the mountains and to safety. A great read. Crash story a good read P W Pat Wellington B OOK MARK armed himself with a cutting instrument and assaulted her. He choked her until she passed out. The suspect was described as 35 to 45 years old, 5-feet-11 to 6-foot-3, heavy set, strawberry blond hair military style or buzz cut, mustache, tattoo on his neck and on both arms, possibly one a rebel flag with an eagle. The victim said there were baby items in the truck. On Oct. 12, a woman, 42, told police she was in the 2200 block of Northwest 7th Street when she was approached by a white male driving a blue or green minivan. She too was driven to a remote area and attacked.However, she was able to arm herself with a cutting instrument and was able to cut the man.The description of the man included similarities, including tattoos, and that he was wearing reading classes. She also said there were childrens toys in the vehicle.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Mars, your ruling planet, begins a journey that will open up a growing number of possibilities. Put that surging Arian energy to good use and explore it to your hearts content. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the time to prepare for a career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get those proposals in shape. And dont forget to buff up that Bovine self-confidence. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted Moon Child. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturbing situation. Dont be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Its a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something spontaneous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good week to get advice on your plans. But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges. But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out of the way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or personal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do. BORN THIS WEEK: You are impelled by a need to find truth, no matter how elusive. You would make a wonderful research scientist or an intrepid detective. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

It is not the frontal attack that is bleeding us white, it is through the back door with imports marked Made in China. This countrys manufacturing capacity stocked the shelves and rebuilt many countries after World War II. To add to the drain of our resources we have 761 military bases in 156 countries around the world and we have 3 million plus serving in the military. The defense budget for 2012 is between $1.03 trillion to $1.415 trillion. The federal budget for 2012 indicates a revenue of $2.627 trillion and expenditures of $3.729 trillion showing a deficit of $1.101 trillion. President Reagan said it best. Deficits arent caused by too little taxing, they are caused by too much spending. We have the knowledge and resources to fix the problems but do we have the will? Come along to this meeting. Your opinion is very important. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation toward their needs you may do so through our Secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Remember that we are proud Americans and proud to be Democrats. We look forward to the future with hope and pride in our country. God bless America.

State Road 200 will be closed on Friday, Oct. 28, so that personnel can complete the move to a new office next door. The new address will remain the same, except that the suite number will change from 104 to 103. News deadlines will be early for the Messenger. News deadlines for the Citizen remain the same. Guinn becomes mayorLongtime City Council member Kent Guinn was elected mayor of Ocala on Thursday, handily defeating two challengers. With less than a 10 percent turnout, Guinn took in 52.06 percent of the votes cast, making a runoff unnecessary. Randall Alvord was second with 31 percent, and Rusty Juergens finished third with 16 percent. The election will be certified by the council today. Guinn replaces Randy Ewers, who chose not to run again.

An agreement had supposedly been reached to combine the dispatch services of the county and the city, lessening the need for transferring emergency calls from the original 9-1-1 call-taker, but the city backed out after an emotional meeting in which officials learned that a prominent employee had been told he was losing his job. The county commissioners didnt comment as they accepted a letter from the city negating a previous agreement, but shortly after, under commissioners comments, the subject came up. Chairman Stan McClain noted, We have to continue to work on that government is going to have to change the way it operates. He suggested a joint meeting with the city early next year. We have to continue to try. Commissioner Mike Amsden noted that there was already some common ground on the issues, and he noted examples such as ambulances, animal control, etc. Sometimes passion overlooks common sense of the issue. Commissioner Carl Zalak commented, Its not about us, its about the community. Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who received praise from her fellow commissioners for her efforts, said she would keep working at the merger. I havent given up. In other business, the county delayed an appointment to a housing board because one of the applicants had checked yes on an application where it asked if he had ever been convicted of a felony. The form didnt ask for any more information than that, and commissioners felt they needed more details. The county also set a Scenic Roads ordinance public hearing for Nov. 15. Dispatch merger rejected The retirement of Larry Thacker, assistant county administrator, drew a presentation at Tuesdays County Commission meeting, even though Thacker couldnt attend. On the agenda was a resolution honoring him, but Chairman Stan McClain had another surprise, a framed copy of a South Marion Citizen story of Thackers retirement.

The Honor Flight Network transports World War II veterans Veterans to Washington, D.C., to see their Memorial for which they waited over 60 years.

Dee Winey, SCP resident, escorted on the June 14 Honor Flight and experienced the World War II Memorial with 104 veterans and their escorts. This was such a moving experience she approached the Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club to support the October Mission and get as many of our resident World War II veterans signed up for the Mission as possible. The project turned into a community wide event including direct donations from residents, businesses, and friends along with displays and donations accepted at the SR 200 Walmart and Reds Restaurant; and our Preserve Golf Club hosted a special event for Ocala Honor Flight. Our finale was Canteen Night at the Preserve with free desserts followed by live music, entertainment and a Chinese raffle/auction of over 25 items donated by our resident artists and businesses along the SR 200 corridor.

It is not the frontal attack that is bleeding us white, it is through the back door with imports marked Made in China. This countrys manufacturing capacity stocked the shelves and rebuilt many countries after World War II. To add to the drain of our resources we have 761 military bases in 156 countries around the world and we have 3 million plus serving in the military. The defense budget for 2012 is between $1.03 trillion to $1.415 trillion. The federal budget for 2012 indicates a revenue of $2.627 trillion and expenditures of $3.729 trillion showing a deficit of $1.101 trillion. President Reagan said it best. Deficits arent caused by too little taxing, they are caused by too much spending. We have the knowledge and resources to fix the problems but do we have the will? Come along to this meeting. Your opinion is very important. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation toward their needs you may do so through our Secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Remember that we are proud Americans and proud to be Democrats. We look forward to the future with hope and pride in our country. God bless America.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good week to get advice on your plans. But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges. But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out of the way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or personal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do.

Had it not been eclipsed by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the end of World War II, this remarkable rescue story would be well known. Instead, Zuckoff retrieved it from the fog of 65 years and breathed new life into it, making it a gripping page turner. On May 13, 1945, in Dutch New Guinea, GIs bored while awaiting new orders, set out on a sightseeing flight. The group of 24 included pilots, nine WACs, and some enlisted men. Their destination was a hidden valley dubbed Shangri-La in the islands interior. Approaching the site involved a tricky maneuvering through a narrow mountain pass with unusual air drafts. Incredibly, at this point the most experienced pilot leaves the cockpit, turning the plane over to a somewhat green co-pilot. The C -27 crashes and burns in a dense jungle 150 aeronautical miles from the U.S. base. Only three survive a badly burned, beautiful WAC, Margaret Hastings, a young lieutenant whose twin brother perished in the crash, John McCollum, and a severely injured sergeant, Kenneth Decker. Stranded and threatened on all sides by warrior tribes and hostile Japanese hiding in the jungle, it will take every bit of bravery, loyalty, and trust they can summon up in order to survive. A canopy of trees makes the three invisible from the air, so McCollum as the highest-ranking officer orders his charges to trek to a clearing despite their injuries. Its slow going but a wise decision. Planes spot them and start dropping supplies. Landing is no option and neither is helicopter rescue because the mountain air is too thin. Back at the base they work 24/7 on a feasible rescue plan. Then spear-wielding natives appear, hundreds of them, naked except for penis gourds. Still living in the Stone Age they spare the survivors harm, thinking them spirits dropped from the sky. Subsequently, Medics parachute to the injured and paratroopers provide protection. When the rescue plan is finalized, its called the snatch. A glider is put in place in the clearing with a loop attached to the top. Then a C-47 at fifteen hundred feet above the valley floor with a pickup arm hanging below the planes belly grabs the gliders nylon loop and lifts it over the mountains and to safety. A great read. Crash story a good read P WPat Wellington BOOK MARK armed himself with a cutting instrument and assaulted her. He choked her until she passed out. The suspect was described as 35 to 45 years old, 5-feet-11 to 6-foot-3, heavy set, strawberry blond hair military style or buzz cut, mustache, tattoo on his neck and on both arms, possibly one a rebel flag with an eagle. The victim said there were baby items in the truck. On Oct. 12, a woman, 42, told police she was in the 2200 block of Northwest 7th Street when she was approached by a white male driving a blue or green minivan. She too was driven to a remote area and attacked.However, she was able to arm herself with a cutting instrument and was able to cut the man.The description of the man included similarities, including tattoos, and that he was wearing reading classes. She also said there were childrens toys in the vehicle.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com Three score and six years ago the Public Health Service brought forth upon this nation a dental discovery dedicated to the proposition that all teeth should be treated equally. Medical investigators had observed there was less tooth decay where water contained natural deposits of fluoride. The announced purpose of a national campaign to fluoridate drinking water was to make healthy teeth available to every citizen, especially young people. The safety, effectiveness, and legality of adding fluoride to public water supplies gave birth to a passel of unlicensed medical experts who suggested such dosing might generate terrible outbreaks of glandular disorders, kidney failures, defective immune systems, cancers, allergies, bone deterioration, and stomach distresses, including bloat. After AIDS was discovered, it was added to the list. A few paranoid hysterics suggested fluoridation of water was a communist conspiracy. Ignoring the naysayers and hysterics, in 1945 Grand Rapids, Michigan fluoridated its water and ignited a conflict which persisted for years and spawned a brigade of fluoride opponents. The American Dental Association says fluoride has proven to be the most effective method of preventing tooth decay. Until lately we assumed the fluoride controversy had long since gone to rest and that the accompanying hysterias had been quieted by availability of tranquility medications. One recent morning, after we had scrubbed our upper and lower bridges and had swished with a fluoride rinse, we browsed the daily paper and discovered the Pinellas County commissioners had voted 4 to 3 to unflouridate their drinking water. Around 65 percent of Americans drink fluoridated water many unknowingly. Their blissful consumption has now been disrupted by Pinellas County, and may have re-ignited a national controversy. The Pinellas County vote isnt all the fluoride news. In a followup article Associated Press reported the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service had changed their recommended level of fluoride in pubic water supplies, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has undertaken a review of the maximum milligrams per liter. The nanny state is on full alert. An opposition is also active. We were surprised to learn that a quiet but persistent anti-flouride movement exists under the banner Flouride Action Network. In cases like this were inclined to look to our founders for guidance. George Washington would say: If you had to spend a winter at Valley Forge eating nuts and half-cooked squirrels, you would vote for anything that might spare the next generation the pain and humiliation of uppers and lowers made of hippopotamus ivory on gold plates with springs. Because of his prejudiced view on this issue, we have to ignore Georges opinion. The other founders Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe would say: Unless theres something harmful in the water provided by Mother Nature, government has no authority to alter the liquid on which we depend for our survival and in which we bathe occasionally. Blessed are the founders for their constitutional wisdom. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 21, 2011 There are a lot of big games in the National Football League each week. Playoff spots are on the line as teams jockey for position in the standings. The Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins game is not one of those that the entire football nation will be watching with anxiety. That, however, doesnt apply to the state of Florida. The DenverMiami game will probably be the most popular in the state next weekend, especially since the Florida Gators have a week off to lick their SEC wounds. The coaching staff at Denver has chosen this week to make Tim Tebow the teams starting quarterback. If you dont know who Tim Tebow is, well, you probably dont watch much football. Tebow graduated from the University of Florida with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the Broncos amid all the skepticism that his throwing motion, among other things, was not NFL caliber. But Denvers previous quarterback, Kyle Orton, was doing so poorly that the job, for now at least, belongs to Tebow. Not only is Tebow starting for the opponent Sunday in Miami, Floridas national champions are being honored. So you know there are going to be Gator fans aplenty in the stadium. With the way the Dolphins have played this year, that might mean a crowd rooting for Denver, more specifically Tebow, this weekend. And another thing making this game more interesting is that the Dolphins are having a major problem ... at the quarterback position. Back when the 2010 draft was held, there were a lot of people in Florida hoping that either Jacksonville or Miami woul draft him (Tampa was pretty well set at the QB spot). That didnt happen, so getting a chance to see Tebow, in his home state, get a big start is a major plus. Im not a huge Gator fan, although some of it has to rub off on you when youve been forcefed Gator news for more than 40 years. I did enjoy watching Tebow, going all the way back to Nease High School in St. Johns County. He seemed like a charismatic leader, and a genuine good guy, and for that reason I was hoping he would make it big in the pros. It hasnt happened yet, but maybe this weekends game will be the first major step for the Florida grad. So come this weekend, Ill be settled down at home watching either the whole game itself or, if our exciting Orlando TV station decides to give us something else, the major highlights on NFL Red Zone. The way Jacksonville and Miami are playing, this could be the biggest game of the year for fans of those two teams (the Bucs of Tampa are in first place).Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

New parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccinepreventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Fixing the economyAs you know, America is saddled with an economy in shambles: out-ofcontrol spending, excessive debt, and high joblessness. The fixes that our administration previously implemented havent worked. As anticipated, the GOP has rejected the administrations jobs bill; our administrations plan to levy a higher tax on the rich wouldnt generate enough revenue to fix our economy, anyhow. Higher taxation of the rich would only cause them to layoff some workers to compensate for the additional tax causing joblessness to increase even more. People have taken to the streets in hundreds of American cities to protest although most of them cant articulate a compelling reason why presumably, their frustration with the state of our economy and their misconception that the greediness of the very rich is a large part of the problem. Still, no one has been able to come up with a realistic solution to our economic and joblessness crises. Oddly, the solution has been right in front of us for some time: Tax reform! Wait a minute! America is going down the tubes and the best solution to Americas problems is tax reform? Yes, tax reform actually tax replacement will cause a natural redistribution of money, and infuse our economy with an abundant revenue-flow by removing the burden and restrictions of our current tax system. By increasing our revenue-flow, desperately needed jobs will be created. Our economy will be given restored life. Tax replacement can be agreed to and supported by all political ideologies: conservatives, liberals, independents, or whomever. Admittedly, there are those from the left and right who will try to make this a partisan issue; mostly for selfserving reasons. They need to be told that replacement of the IRS income tax system is the one thing that will revitalize the American economy and get Americans back to work. Weve been hearing rumblings of tax reform for years and years. But, aside from the customary political rhetoric, the application of yet another bandage on our tax code, and a lot of empty promises, nothing ever really gets done. At times, it seems that cronyism and good-ole-boy politics mean more than the things that are best for Americans. Fortunately we have people and organizations dedicated to restoring politics to what it should be. But, until we have accomplished that, we will just have to tolerate politics-as-usual. Many people will say that tax reform is not now a priority; creating jobs and fixing the economy are. Again, by implementing tax replacement now these priorities will be fixed. Together we can restore Americas economy and get Americans back to work. Replacement of the IRS tax system is the best way to do it.Joe OHara On Top of the WorldWell, Well, WellThe truth about our differences as Americans is now being shown and told! The majority of Wall Street protesters look like hoodlums, throwing trash wherever they are and even protest against our Capitalistic system. Most have no idea what they are protesting, they are just trying to be the new s hippies. Have you noticed the difference in most of them and the Tea Party rallies where men and women act like gentlemen and ladies, none throwing out trash for others to clean up? Tea Partiers carry patriotic signs that show a genuine love for our country, not the opposite. I was always taught that trash leaves trash. Decent people do NOT litter! Which one do you want to identify with? Think about it! Now we have the racist charges answered in a way even the most left wing liberal should understand. Tea Parties support Herman Cain! The last time I checked he is black, not white. Our dislike of President Obama has never had anything to do with his race, it has to do with his policies. If liberals would examine the direction the Democratic Party is going, they would understand why there is no longer an official Socialist Party nominee. The man who ran on multiple occasions as the Socialist candidate stated that we no longer needed that to occur. Reason given: The Democratic Party has taken up their agenda and plans, moving so far to the left that it is no longer the same party many voted for in the past. He obviously is now a Democrat. The writer of Sounds Good, No Facts, should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable? Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks! If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture? Yes, its time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called Jobs bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep. Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America!

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Two men were arrested Oct. 16 and accused of attempted robbery with a weapon after an incident at the Bank of America, 7975 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. The two suspects were identified as Joshua Van Nelson, 31, of Southwest 138th Street Road, and John Quincy Ruffin, 25, of Citrus Springs. Both are employed as subcontractors with Direct TV. According to the report, deputies responded to the bank at Southwest 80th Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. A woman victim told the call-taker that two men had pepper sprayed her and her friend, then ran through the woods. She said they saw a black pickup truck leaving the area at a high rate of speed, and gave chase. The pickup was reported as heading west on S.R. 200, and a deputy saw both vehicles and made the traffic stop at a car wash across from the Sheriffs Southwest District Office substation. The two men said they had done nothing wrong, and that they carry pepper spray for when they encounter dogs doing their jobs. A K-9 unit traced the men from the drive-up to the spot where the pickup truck was seen leaving at a high rate of speed, and footprints were allegedly matched to one of the mens shoes. The two were taken to the substation, arrested and taken to the county jail.

Highway200, Ocala is asking each member to bring a friend or neighbor to the 10:30 a.m. worship service on Reformation Sunday, Oct. 30, when we will celebrate our Presbyterian heritage and the sixth anniversary of our magnificent sanctuary. This day commemorates the inception in 1524 of the Reformed Church by Martin Luther, a German Catholic monk who nailed his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg castle church door. It also commemorates the French-born preacher and bible scholar John Calvin, known as the Father of Presbyterianism, who after converting to Protestantism in 1533 fled to Switzerland. Calvin was joined there by the Scottish reformed minister John Knox who eventually returned to Scotland where he founded the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Reformation Day service at Countryside will include the procession of tartans and the playing of bagpipes. We will have an anniversary cake at our coffee hour following the service. The public is invited. For further information, please call the church office at 352-237-4633.Interfaith AllianceThe Faith Club, a one hour readers theater performance in which three women a Jew, a Muslim and a Christian discuss their concerns, stereotypes and misunderstandings Just the facts, man Perhaps, it might be useful if the members of The Socialist-Marxist Party picked up a book now, and then. They might just be able to argue on the facts, and not just hot air. May I suggest: Dupes by Paul Kengor; The Liberal Mind by Lyle Rossiter; A Thousand Splendid Sons by Klaled Hossini; Kite Runner by Klaled Hossini; Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane; The Law by Fredric Bastiat; Self Study on Political Islam; The truth about Muhammod by Robert Spencer; One Globalism by George Soros; The Bubble of American Supremacy by George Soros; America for Sale by Jerome R. Corsi, PH.D., Shadow Party, Shadow Government by David Horowitz former Liberal}; Blueprint by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer; 5000 Year Leap; The Writings of Fredric Douglas; The Road to Serfdom by F. A Hayek; Philip Dru Administrator by Edward Mandell House; Plus a few hundred more. Then you might be qualified to state facts. Fact 1. Socialism, and Marxism are so great. Why? Did as many people as could escape from Cuba flee to America for refuge? Why has 25 percent of Mexico fled their country? Why are most doctors in America of foreign descent? Why are citizens worldwide fighting to live in America? Why was the Berlin Wall torn down? Marxism thrown out of Russia? Why would we want either one of these failed systems in America? Give me a logical explanation, not mouth. Just facts, why socialism is right for America. Fact 2. SS and Medicare are bankrupt due to the raid on those funds by the federal government. Where will the replacement money come from? Turnips? We are printing money daily. Money becomes less valued every day? When it reaches zero, what comes next? Where was it stated that the Republican Party is without blame? I will admit to its faults, when will you admit to Democratic (Socialist-Marxist) faults? I am angrier than any liberal about Wall Street. Hedge funds, and derivatives are legal but immoral, and must be gotten rid of, along with the Federal Reserve. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Chuck Schumer are responsible for the Fannie, and Freddie debacle. They must go straight to jail. There are videos of committee meetings showing them poo-pooing the idea of curtailing those sub-prime loans, they would not allow it. Those poor people need homes. Talk about bleeding heart liberals. Soft headed might be more appropriate. Whos paying for that bit of wisdom? If you should decide to pick up a book, pray that not one drop of blood is shed in America, while you read. Socialists are pushing for chaos as their signal to impose martial law, and implement global law. The next day your dollar will be worth nothing ask the Germans}, the Amero is in the wings waiting to replace the dollar (See: America For Sale). Another small item already in place: SDRs, Special Drawing Rights. Any broke half-baked nation, can draw out money from the World Bank, in any amount with no way of ever paying it back. How, long can this go on? (see America For Sale). Globalists have big plans in place to take over the world. Socialists: keep your head in the sand. Good thinking. The Globalists will not find you that way. Now, the Jihadists will probably find you, when they do their beheading ritual. Depends on which faction wins the battle of ideologies. Which do you prefer? Which form of enslavement is your choice? You can deny, deny, deny, til the cows come home, but when it happens, it is too late to pull your head out of the sand. Ask the Germans, Cubans, Venezuelans, North Koreans, and the scores of other enslaved peoples around the world. The world is being transformed, and you are worried about your puny SS and Medicare. There will be none of that after the upheaval. Sorry, Charlie. D.I. Larson OcalaWhy the deductibles?Maybe the Wall Street occupiers could get an answer from the CEOs they are harassing on a question that keeps coming to mind. Why do we have deductibles on our auto, home and health insurance policies? After we pay for the insurance, we must pay more before we are eligible to receive its benefits. Insurance is supposed to spread the misfortune of the one over the good fortune of the many. Deductibles are a misfortune for all policy holders but an obvious good fortune for the insurance companies. And why is there no deductible on life insurance? Also, history teaches us that political power only responds to an equal or greater political power. Since our Congress is out of control and nonresponsive to our wishes and needs, maybe the Tea Party could have their few congressional members, as a bloc, file a petition with the Supreme Court. The petition would request the court to review the consti-Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE12 RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE25 861-Wise (9473) VOTED SOUTH MARION CITIZENS READERS CHOICE #1 USED CAR DEALER Over 50 Years Experience Family Owned & Operated Experience a whole new way to buy a vehicle Like-new cars without the new car price LOCATE PROGRAM, Wise Way can find any vehicle youre looking for!

Congratulations to this weeks winners.Carol Anns CornerFrank Porterfield, producer of Way Off Broadways In St. Louis At The Fair, wrote me saying, Weve had great audiences; the play has been received beyond what we had hoped for. Weve discussed in the column the talented acting, singing and dancing, the great costumes, the gorgeous sets, etc. After I saw the play it struck me that one has to go back to the very beginning to point out one element of the production that contributed greatly to the wonderful success, namely the choice of play itself. I doubt that very many people, other than perhaps a few theater aficionados, had ever heard of In St. Louis At The Fair. Most folks are familiar with Meet Me in St. Louis, but this play was not as well known The big thing it had going for it was that the characters of the play were perfectly suited to the actors, singers and dancers from Way Off Broadway. So in addition to hearty congratulations to the cast and crew of In St. Louis At the Fair I would also like to congratulate the folks that selected this particular play, a truly inspired choice.

Bill Farthing, Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Storm clouds were brewing like fresh morning coffee in the normally placid parsonage this past week. I will not say that things got out of hand, which is not to say they did not. I just will not say. I sensed a growing controversy between my wife and myself. Its genesis came about because of some silly mix-up, I assure you. Usually, mix-ups come about because of some misunderstanding and boy, do I sure miss my understanding. I have misplaced mine for so long I honestly cannot remember when I had it last. If my memory serves me, and it has not to date, the last time I had a glimpse of my understanding, I was standing at some altar repeating the words, I do. After that, life has been a glorious blur. The faux pas between us simply was a matter of attitude. My better half took the high road and I, per usual, took the low road. The reason I take the low road is simply that when I fall, and falling for me is inevitable, I do not have far to plummet. Regrettably, this past week we experienced a clash of attitudes. I can sum up my attitude in life quite nicely: Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Who knows? I may forget the whole thing by then, something I am renowned for around the parsonage, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, my lifes companion firmly believes in doing things ahead of time. For instance, by the end of August all her Christmas shopping is finished, wrapped and stored in the garage waiting for the Christmas tree. She has a wonderful knack for planning. What I want to know is how does she know if I am going to be naughty or nice? Usually, I give in to my better half. After all, that is what a great marriage is all about; give and take. As a dutiful husband, I take everything she gives me. This time, however, an important principle was at stake. Some things in life are worth fighting for and this represented one of those times. For years, I have suffered from a condition known as Afternoon Siesta Syndrome. Each afternoon I stretch out for an hour of rest. In that hour, I meditate on some of the more important issues of life. I cannot tell you how many significant problems I have resolved during my daily afternoon forty winks. I say I cant tell you not because I dont want to, but when aroused from my snooze I cant remember the solution. All I know is that somewhere in the recesses of my mind are wonderful resolutions to some of the most intricate problems facing our world today. In this regard, I do not know how often my wife has said to me, You need to see a psychiatrist. This leads me to the subject of our difference this past week. I am a firm believer in the Art of Casual Loafing. Loafing gets such a bad rap because so many amateurs try their hand at it. Let me say right here that loafing is definitely not for the inexperienced. A level of skill and expertise that only comes from diligent practice. Personally, I have invested over 50 years in the Art of Casual Loafing, which qualifies me as some sort of an expert on the subject. I am a proud, card-carrying member of the ACL union. I could have been elected president but we have not got around to elections yet. Many, and when I say many, I am especially including my companion, take loafing as something that comes rather easy. Oh, quite contraire, Mon Frre. Nothing could be further from the truth. My spouse thinks loafing is a tragic waste of time. She thinks things need doing in a timely fashion, like right now. The garbage must be taken out right now. The backyard needs mowing right now. The groceries in the back of the car need brought in right now. A person can take this right now business too far, if you ask me. I like to take things a little more casual than that. This right now hang-up can create some serious stress in relationships; especially between hers and mine. Theres no time like the present, my wife often tells me with a look in her eye defying me not to do what she just requested. To her, right now is very important. When I want to resolve a difficulty, I resort to the Bible. This was no exception. Much to my amazement, the word now occurs in the Bible 1,356 times, which is rather impressive. I never thought of it before. What I discovered startled me. I had to admit that in certain things my dear wife is correct. Some things must be done right now. Two Bible verses emphasize the importance of right now. In the book of Isaiah, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). Then, in the New Testament behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). Right now is the best time to address your relationship with Jesus Christ.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

On this day in 1783 Piltre de Rozier made a free flight in a balloon, reaching a peak altitude of about 3,000 feet and traveling over 5 miles in 20 minutes. Pun Alley celebrates with its own hot air to raise some balloons and hopefully some smiles.AirborneA man flying in a hot air balloon was lost. When he spotted a man below, he lowered the balloon and shouted, Excuse me, can you tell me where I am? The man below said, Yes, youre in a hot air balloon, hovering thirty feet above this field. You must work in engineering, replied the balloonist. I do, the man said. How did you know? Well, said the balloonist, Everything you have told me is technically correct, but its no practical use to anyone. The man below said, You must be a corporate manager. I am, replied the balloonist. How did you know? Well, said the man, you dont know where you are or where youre going, but you expect me to be able to help. You have the same problem you had before we met, but now its my fault.Not high enoughAt a circus festival a guy in bad clown makeup was creating intricate balloon animals. He was in the middle of twisting something together when a little girl asked, What are you making? He sighed, and said, Minimum wage.HigherYears ago when I took Ruth to a restaurant for her birthday, they would attach several balloons to her hair that would cause her locks to float in the air. The last time I took her there was a charge for $2.50 for the balloons on my bill. They claim it was necessary because of inflation.Popped balloonsThe lady was charged with public drunkenness after failing a roadside sobriety test. Actually she passed, but then made the mistake of making a giraffe out of the balloon. The best dog in the world is the hot dog. It feeds the hand that bites it. The balloon makers formed a union because their work was rapidly expanding. When my kid does something wrong, I ground him. But the real punishment comes when I connect him to the positive and negative wires. Hot air balloons are male because to get it to go anywhere you have to light a fire under it and, of course, theres the hot air part. Todays politicians should do two terms one in office and one in jail. They make a perfect couple. He sells balloons for a living, and shes full of hot air. The pelican stuck his head into the light socket and got an electric bill.More hot airA doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. People describing their ailments to the doctor constantly interrupted them. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when youre out of the office? I give it to them, replied the lawyer, and then I send them a bill. The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.Ping-pong A man accidentally swallowed a ping-pong ball and was rushed into surgery for its removal. The patient insisted on having only a local anesthetic so he could watch the operation. He winced a little when the first incision was made, but he didnt feel it, nor did he feel the next cut or the next. However, he become alarmed at the number of incisions, as the surgeon cut here and there, in what seemed a rather random manner. Why do you have to cut in so many places? he asked, they dont seem to be consistent. Well, replied the surgeon, cutting away, thats the way the ball bounces!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Lots of hot air on this day in Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.comVisiting Angels will hold free confidential memory screenings as part of National Memory Screening Day, an annual initiative of the Alzheimers Foundation of America (AFA) to promote proper detection of memory problems. The screenings will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the OTOW Circle Square Commons area in the Visiting Angels establishment, located at 8405 S.W. 80th St., Suite 14. It is estimated that as many as 5.1 million Americans have Alzheimers disease, and the number is escalating as the first baby boomers began turning age 65 this year. Advanced age is the greatest risk factor, with the incidence of the disease doubling every five years between the ages of 65 and 95. November is National Alzheimers Disease Awareness Month, and this years screenings mark the ninth annual National Memory Screening Day to take place (see www.nationalmemoryscreening.or g for further information). These screenings serve as a starting point for discussions about memory concerns and lifestyle changes that may help people as they age. A memory screening averages five to 10 minutes and consists of questions and tasks to assess memory. The screening is a safe, cost effective intervention and when indicated, one can be directed to appropriate clinical resources. Please note that these screenings do not diagnose any illness; they simply indicate whether someone should pursue a follow-up medical exam. It is estimated that missed diagnoses of Alzheimers or dementia may be as high as 90 percent. Please take advantage of this free screening. The Alzheimers Foundation of America is a leading national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. It is focused on the care for individuals with Alzheimers disease and related illnesses and upon their families. For further information, call 866-AFA8484 or visit www.alzfdn.org.Entertainment Group This is the last call for the few remaining tickets for the Neil Diamond tribute Diamond Then and Now show Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., presented by Drs.

If you supported a participant in previous years, get in touch with them now and let them know you are behind them again. Pledge forms will be included in the November Oak Run Newsletter. We hope to raise enough to have another room at Legacy House. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways play is over, the scenery and the props have been returned to the warehouse but the public acclaim received will stay with us forever. Oak Run audiences just cant be beat. A cast and crew for one of these plays put in an amazing amount of time, hard work and dedication and their only reward is the pat on the back they receive from an audience at the conclusion of a play. We noted in a recent letter to the editor in the Star Banner, the writer expressing disappointment at the audience recently at the Ocala Civic Theatre, whereby the cast was assembled in the lobby of the theater and the audience passed out totally ignoring the gathered cast. This was not the case in Palm Grove after each of our performances. The audiences gathered around our cast in what you could best describe as a love fest. It makes you proud to see the appreciation expressed. Following the Sunday performance we gathered for what we call an After Glow Party and it certainly was, a fitting farewell to one another after putting away the tap shoes and grease paint to rise again another day.Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Annual health fair to take place Thursday, Oct. 27 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE16 Wickedly Wonderful Werewolf PopsMakes about 8 pops Round Cookie Pop Pan 2 tablespoons margarine or butter 2 cups miniature marshmallows 3 cups crisp chocolatecoated rice cereal 8 8-inch Cookie Sticks Dark Cocoa Candy Melts Yellow Candy Melts Brown candy-coated chocolates Candy corn Spray Round Cookie Pop Pan and spatula or wooden spoon with vegetable pan spray.

It was a smash hit !! Now it is time for Little Theatre to start dusting off the cobwebs and start seriously thinking about plans for its spring play recently announced by the reading committee. It is another hilariously funny farce by Michael and Susan Parker. Many of you will recall other plays of theirs that we have done, Whos in Bed with the Butler and Whose Wives Are They Anyway.

We hope to raise enough to have another room at Legacy House. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways play is over, the scenery and the props have been returned to the warehouse but the public acclaim received will stay with us forever. Oak Run audiences just cant be beat. A cast and crew for one of these plays put in an amazing amount of time, hard work and dedication and their only reward is the pat on the back they receive from an audience at the conclusion of a play. We noted in a recent letter to the editor in the Star Banner, the writer expressing disappointment at the audience recently at the Ocala Civic Theatre, whereby the cast was assembled in the lobby of the theater and the audience passed out totally ignoring the gathered cast. This was not the case in Palm Grove after each of our performances. The audiences gathered around our cast in what you could best describe as a love fest. It makes you proud to see the appreciation expressed. Following the Sunday performance we gathered for what we call an After Glow Party and it certainly was, a fitting farewell to one another after putting away the tap shoes and grease paint to rise again another day.Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Annual health fair to take place Thursday, Oct. 27 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE16 Wickedly Wonderful Werewolf PopsMakes about 8 pops Round Cookie Pop Pan 2 tablespoons margarine or butter 2 cups miniature marshmallows 3 cups crisp chocolatecoated rice cereal 8 8-inch Cookie Sticks Dark Cocoa Candy Melts Yellow Candy Melts Brown candy-coated chocolates Candy corn Spray Round Cookie Pop Pan and spatula or wooden spoon with vegetable pan spray.

On this day in 1783 Piltre de Rozier made a free flight in a balloon, reaching a peak altitude of about 3,000 feet and traveling over 5 miles in 20 minutes. Pun Alley celebrates with its own hot air to raise some balloons and hopefully some smiles.AirborneA man flying in a hot air balloon was lost. When he spotted a man below, he lowered the balloon and shouted, Excuse me, can you tell me where I am? The man below said, Yes, youre in a hot air balloon, hovering thirty feet above this field. You must work in engineering, replied the balloonist. I do, the man said. How did you know? Well, said the balloonist, Everything you have told me is technically correct, but its no practical use to anyone. The man below said, You must be a corporate manager. I am, replied the balloonist. How did you know? Well, said the man, you dont know where you are or where youre going, but you expect me to be able to help. You have the same problem you had before we met, but now its my fault.Not high enoughAt a circus festival a guy in bad clown makeup was creating intricate balloon animals. He was in the middle of twisting something together when a little girl asked, What are you making? He sighed, and said, Minimum wage.HigherYears ago when I took Ruth to a restaurant for her birthday, they would attach several balloons to her hair that would cause her locks to float in the air. The last time I took her there was a charge for $2.50 for the balloons on my bill. They claim it was necessary because of inflation.Popped balloonsThe lady was charged with public drunkenness after failing a roadside sobriety test. Actually she passed, but then made the mistake of making a giraffe out of the balloon. The best dog in the world is the hot dog. It feeds the hand that bites it. The balloon makers formed a union because their work was rapidly expanding. When my kid does something wrong, I ground him. But the real punishment comes when I connect him to the positive and negative wires. Hot air balloons are male because to get it to go anywhere you have to light a fire under it and, of course, theres the hot air part. Todays politicians should do two terms one in office and one in jail. They make a perfect couple. He sells balloons for a living, and shes full of hot air. The pelican stuck his head into the light socket and got an electric bill.More hot airA doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. People describing their ailments to the doctor constantly interrupted them. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when youre out of the office? I give it to them, replied the lawyer, and then I send them a bill. The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.Ping-pong A man accidentally swallowed a ping-pong ball and was rushed into surgery for its removal. The patient insisted on having only a local anesthetic so he could watch the operation. He winced a little when the first incision was made, but he didnt feel it, nor did he feel the next cut or the next. However, he become alarmed at the number of incisions, as the surgeon cut here and there, in what seemed a rather random manner. Why do you have to cut in so many places? he asked, they dont seem to be consistent. Well, replied the surgeon, cutting away, thats the way the ball bounces!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Lots of hot air on this day in Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.comVisiting Angels will hold free confidential memory screenings as part of National Memory Screening Day, an annual initiative of the Alzheimers Foundation of America (AFA) to promote proper detection of memory problems. The screenings will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the OTOW Circle Square Commons area in the Visiting Angels establishment, located at 8405 S.W. 80th St., Suite 14. It is estimated that as many as 5.1 million Americans have Alzheimers disease, and the number is escalating as the first baby boomers began turning age 65 this year. Advanced age is the greatest risk factor, with the incidence of the disease doubling every five years between the ages of 65 and 95. November is National Alzheimers Disease Awareness Month, and this years screenings mark the ninth annual National Memory Screening Day to take place (see www.nationalmemoryscreening.or g for further information). These screenings serve as a starting point for discussions about memory concerns and lifestyle changes that may help people as they age. A memory screening averages five to 10 minutes and consists of questions and tasks to assess memory. The screening is a safe, cost effective intervention and when indicated, one can be directed to appropriate clinical resources. Please note that these screenings do not diagnose any illness; they simply indicate whether someone should pursue a follow-up medical exam. It is estimated that missed diagnoses of Alzheimers or dementia may be as high as 90 percent. Please take advantage of this free screening. The Alzheimers Foundation of America is a leading national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. It is focused on the care for individuals with Alzheimers disease and related illnesses and upon their families. For further information, call 866-AFA8484 or visit www.alzfdn.org.Entertainment Group This is the last call for the few remaining tickets for the Neil Diamond tribute Diamond Then and Now show Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., presented by Drs. Challa and Kandru. On Nov. 26 at 7 p.m., the Entertainment Group kicks off the holiday season with Indianas Marlin Brothers presentation of Christmas and a Whole Lot more performance. The performance will take place in the ballroom at Deluca Toyota. The Marlins are very talented singers and musicians who have performed at OTOW before a full house, and their show is one of the most requested for a return performance to the OTOW stage. Their shows include music from such diversified artists as Glen Miller, Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys, and more. Tickets go on sale Oct. 3 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week from 8:30 to 10 a.m. in the ballroom of the H & R Building. Tickets cost $8 for general admission and $10 for reserved seating, with a maximum of four tickets per purchase for residents in all OTOW communities and Indigo East. The group wishes to express their gratitude to Frank Deluca for presenting the Marlin Brothers show for a ticket price that costs less than the price of a movie and a box of popcorn.Travel ToppersTravel Toppers have seats for the Casino Gambling cruise out of Port Canaveral on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

Lynn Houghton was Closest to the Pin. We are all enjoying the slightly cooler fall weather. Congratulations to this weeks winners.Carol Anns CornerFrank Porterfield, producer of Way Off Broadways In St. Louis At The Fair, wrote me saying, Weve had great audiences; the play has been received beyond what we had hoped for. Weve discussed in the column the talented acting, singing and dancing, the great costumes, the gorgeous sets, etc. After I saw the play it struck me that one has to go back to the very beginning to point out one element of the production that contributed greatly to the wonderful success, namely the choice of play itself. I doubt that very many people, other than perhaps a few theater aficionados, had ever heard of In St. Louis At The Fair. Most folks are familiar with Meet Me in St. Louis, but this play was not as well known The big thing it had going for it was that the characters of the play were perfectly suited to the actors, singers and dancers from Way Off Broadway. So in addition to hearty congratulations to the cast and crew of In St. Louis At the Fair I would also like to congratulate the folks that selected this particular play, a truly inspired choice.

Does this misuse of congressional power reflect the true purpose and intent of our Constitution? Our Equal Powers Doctrine would get a good workout and we may regain control of the 535 self indulging politicians who have captured our Capital. Bill Farthing, Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Storm clouds were brewing like fresh morning coffee in the normally placid parsonage this past week. I will not say that things got out of hand, which is not to say they did not. I just will not say. I sensed a growing controversy between my wife and myself. Its genesis came about because of some silly mix-up, I assure you. Usually, mix-ups come about because of some misunderstanding and boy, do I sure miss my understanding. I have misplaced mine for so long I honestly cannot remember when I had it last. If my memory serves me, and it has not to date, the last time I had a glimpse of my understanding, I was standing at some altar repeating the words, I do. After that, life has been a glorious blur. The faux pas between us simply was a matter of attitude. My better half took the high road and I, per usual, took the low road. The reason I take the low road is simply that when I fall, and falling for me is inevitable, I do not have far to plummet. Regrettably, this past week we experienced a clash of attitudes. I can sum up my attitude in life quite nicely: Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Who knows? I may forget the whole thing by then, something I am renowned for around the parsonage, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, my lifes companion firmly believes in doing things ahead of time. For instance, by the end of August all her Christmas shopping is finished, wrapped and stored in the garage waiting for the Christmas tree. She has a wonderful knack for planning. What I want to know is how does she know if I am going to be naughty or nice? Usually, I give in to my better half. After all, that is what a great marriage is all about; give and take. As a dutiful husband, I take everything she gives me. This time, however, an important principle was at stake. Some things in life are worth fighting for and this represented one of those times. For years, I have suffered from a condition known as Afternoon Siesta Syndrome. Each afternoon I stretch out for an hour of rest. In that hour, I meditate on some of the more important issues of life. I cannot tell you how many significant problems I have resolved during my daily afternoon forty winks. I say I cant tell you not because I dont want to, but when aroused from my snooze I cant remember the solution. All I know is that somewhere in the recesses of my mind are wonderful resolutions to some of the most intricate problems facing our world today. In this regard, I do not know how often my wife has said to me, You need to see a psychiatrist. This leads me to the subject of our difference this past week. I am a firm believer in the Art of Casual Loafing. Loafing gets such a bad rap because so many amateurs try their hand at it. Let me say right here that loafing is definitely not for the inexperienced. A level of skill and expertise that only comes from diligent practice. Personally, I have invested over 50 years in the Art of Casual Loafing, which qualifies me as some sort of an expert on the subject. I am a proud, card-carrying member of the ACL union. I could have been elected president but we have not got around to elections yet. Many, and when I say many, I am especially including my companion, take loafing as something that comes rather easy. Oh, quite contraire, Mon Frre. Nothing could be further from the truth. My spouse thinks loafing is a tragic waste of time. She thinks things need doing in a timely fashion, like right now. The garbage must be taken out right now. The backyard needs mowing right now. The groceries in the back of the car need brought in right now. A person can take this right now business too far, if you ask me. I like to take things a little more casual than that. This right now hang-up can create some serious stress in relationships; especially between hers and mine. Theres no time like the present, my wife often tells me with a look in her eye defying me not to do what she just requested. To her, right now is very important. When I want to resolve a difficulty, I resort to the Bible. This was no exception. Much to my amazement, the word now occurs in the Bible 1,356 times, which is rather impressive. I never thought of it before. What I discovered startled me. I had to admit that in certain things my dear wife is correct. Some things must be done right now. Two Bible verses emphasize the importance of right now. In the book of Isaiah, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). Then, in the New Testament behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). Right now is the best time to address your relationship with Jesus Christ.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

This day commemorates the inception in 1524 of the Reformed Church by Martin Luther, a German Catholic monk who nailed his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg castle church door. It also commemorates the French-born preacher and bible scholar John Calvin, known as the Father of Presbyterianism, who after converting to Protestantism in 1533 fled to Switzerland. Calvin was joined there by the Scottish reformed minister John Knox who eventually returned to Scotland where he founded the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Reformation Day service at Countryside will include the procession of tartans and the playing of bagpipes. We will have an anniversary cake at our coffee hour following the service. The public is invited. For further information, please call the church office at 352-237-4633.Interfaith AllianceThe Faith Club, a one hour readers theater performance in which three women a Jew, a Muslim and a Christian discuss their concerns, stereotypes and misunderstandings Just the facts, man Perhaps, it might be useful if the members of The Socialist-Marxist Party picked up a book now, and then. They might just be able to argue on the facts, and not just hot air. May I suggest: Dupes by Paul Kengor; The Liberal Mind by Lyle Rossiter; A Thousand Splendid Sons by Klaled Hossini; Kite Runner by Klaled Hossini; Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane; The Law by Fredric Bastiat; Self Study on Political Islam; The truth about Muhammod by Robert Spencer; One Globalism by George Soros; The Bubble of American Supremacy by George Soros; America for Sale by Jerome R. Corsi, PH.D., Shadow Party, Shadow Government by David Horowitz former Liberal}; Blueprint by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer; 5000 Year Leap; The Writings of Fredric Douglas; The Road to Serfdom by F. A Hayek; Philip Dru Administrator by Edward Mandell House; Plus a few hundred more. Then you might be qualified to state facts. Fact 1. Socialism, and Marxism are so great. Why? Did as many people as could escape from Cuba flee to America for refuge? Why has 25 percent of Mexico fled their country? Why are most doctors in America of foreign descent? Why are citizens worldwide fighting to live in America? Why was the Berlin Wall torn down? Marxism thrown out of Russia? Why would we want either one of these failed systems in America? Give me a logical explanation, not mouth. Just facts, why socialism is right for America. Fact 2. SS and Medicare are bankrupt due to the raid on those funds by the federal government. Where will the replacement money come from? Turnips? We are printing money daily. Money becomes less valued every day? When it reaches zero, what comes next? Where was it stated that the Republican Party is without blame? I will admit to its faults, when will you admit to Democratic (Socialist-Marxist) faults? I am angrier than any liberal about Wall Street. Hedge funds, and derivatives are legal but immoral, and must be gotten rid of, along with the Federal Reserve. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Chuck Schumer are responsible for the Fannie, and Freddie debacle. They must go straight to jail. There are videos of committee meetings showing them poo-pooing the idea of curtailing those sub-prime loans, they would not allow it. Those poor people need homes. Talk about bleeding heart liberals. Soft headed might be more appropriate. Whos paying for that bit of wisdom? If you should decide to pick up a book, pray that not one drop of blood is shed in America, while you read. Socialists are pushing for chaos as their signal to impose martial law, and implement global law. The next day your dollar will be worth nothing ask the Germans}, the Amero is in the wings waiting to replace the dollar (See: America For Sale). Another small item already in place: SDRs, Special Drawing Rights. Any broke half-baked nation, can draw out money from the World Bank, in any amount with no way of ever paying it back. How, long can this go on? (see America For Sale). Globalists have big plans in place to take over the world. Socialists: keep your head in the sand. Good thinking. The Globalists will not find you that way. Now, the Jihadists will probably find you, when they do their beheading ritual. Depends on which faction wins the battle of ideologies. Which do you prefer? Which form of enslavement is your choice? You can deny, deny, deny, til the cows come home, but when it happens, it is too late to pull your head out of the sand. Ask the Germans, Cubans, Venezuelans, North Koreans, and the scores of other enslaved peoples around the world. The world is being transformed, and you are worried about your puny SS and Medicare. There will be none of that after the upheaval. Sorry, Charlie. D.I. Larson OcalaWhy the deductibles?Maybe the Wall Street occupiers could get an answer from the CEOs they are harassing on a question that keeps coming to mind. Why do we have deductibles on our auto, home and health insurance policies? After we pay for the insurance, we must pay more before we are eligible to receive its benefits. Insurance is supposed to spread the misfortune of the one over the good fortune of the many. Deductibles are a misfortune for all policy holders but an obvious good fortune for the insurance companies. And why is there no deductible on life insurance? Also, history teaches us that political power only responds to an equal or greater political power. Since our Congress is out of control and nonresponsive to our wishes and needs, maybe the Tea Party could have their few congressional members, as a bloc, file a petition with the Supreme Court. The petition would request the court to review the consti-Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE12 RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE25 861-Wise (9473) VOTED SOUTH MARION CITIZENS READERS CHOICE #1 USED CAR DEALER Over 50 Years Experience Family Owned & Operated Experience a whole new way to buy a vehicle Like-new cars without the new car price LOCATE PROGRAM, Wise Way can find any vehicle youre looking for!

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Two men were arrested Oct. 16 and accused of attempted robbery with a weapon after an incident at the Bank of America, 7975 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. The two suspects were identified as Joshua Van Nelson, 31, of Southwest 138th Street Road, and John Quincy Ruffin, 25, of Citrus Springs. Both are employed as subcontractors with Direct TV. According to the report, deputies responded to the bank at Southwest 80th Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. A woman victim told the call-taker that two men had pepper sprayed her and her friend, then ran through the woods. She said they saw a black pickup truck leaving the area at a high rate of speed, and gave chase. The pickup was reported as heading west on S.R. 200, and a deputy saw both vehicles and made the traffic stop at a car wash across from the Sheriffs Southwest District Office substation. The two men said they had done nothing wrong, and that they carry pepper spray for when they encounter dogs doing their jobs. A K-9 unit traced the men from the drive-up to the spot where the pickup truck was seen leaving at a high rate of speed, and footprints were allegedly matched to one of the mens shoes. The two were taken to the substation, arrested and taken to the county jail. Two jailed for trying to rob people at automated teller Marions Most Wanted Damon Frederick, 39, Violation of probation counts 1 and 2, felony fraudulent use of credit card; count 3 fraudulent use of personal identification information.

Fixing the economyAs you know, America is saddled with an economy in shambles: out-ofcontrol spending, excessive debt, and high joblessness. The fixes that our administration previously implemented havent worked. As anticipated, the GOP has rejected the administrations jobs bill; our administrations plan to levy a higher tax on the rich wouldnt generate enough revenue to fix our economy, anyhow. Higher taxation of the rich would only cause them to layoff some workers to compensate for the additional tax causing joblessness to increase even more. People have taken to the streets in hundreds of American cities to protest although most of them cant articulate a compelling reason why presumably, their frustration with the state of our economy and their misconception that the greediness of the very rich is a large part of the problem. Still, no one has been able to come up with a realistic solution to our economic and joblessness crises. Oddly, the solution has been right in front of us for some time: Tax reform! Wait a minute! America is going down the tubes and the best solution to Americas problems is tax reform? Yes, tax reform actually tax replacement will cause a natural redistribution of money, and infuse our economy with an abundant revenue-flow by removing the burden and restrictions of our current tax system. By increasing our revenue-flow, desperately needed jobs will be created. Our economy will be given restored life. Tax replacement can be agreed to and supported by all political ideologies: conservatives, liberals, independents, or whomever. Admittedly, there are those from the left and right who will try to make this a partisan issue; mostly for selfserving reasons. They need to be told that replacement of the IRS income tax system is the one thing that will revitalize the American economy and get Americans back to work. Weve been hearing rumblings of tax reform for years and years. But, aside from the customary political rhetoric, the application of yet another bandage on our tax code, and a lot of empty promises, nothing ever really gets done. At times, it seems that cronyism and good-ole-boy politics mean more than the things that are best for Americans. Fortunately we have people and organizations dedicated to restoring politics to what it should be. But, until we have accomplished that, we will just have to tolerate politics-as-usual. Many people will say that tax reform is not now a priority; creating jobs and fixing the economy are. Again, by implementing tax replacement now these priorities will be fixed. Together we can restore Americas economy and get Americans back to work. Replacement of the IRS tax system is the best way to do it.Joe OHara On Top of the WorldWell, Well, WellThe truth about our differences as Americans is now being shown and told! The majority of Wall Street protesters look like hoodlums, throwing trash wherever they are and even protest against our Capitalistic system. Most have no idea what they are protesting, they are just trying to be the new s hippies. Have you noticed the difference in most of them and the Tea Party rallies where men and women act like gentlemen and ladies, none throwing out trash for others to clean up? Tea Partiers carry patriotic signs that show a genuine love for our country, not the opposite. I was always taught that trash leaves trash. Decent people do NOT litter! Which one do you want to identify with? Think about it! Now we have the racist charges answered in a way even the most left wing liberal should understand. Tea Parties support Herman Cain! The last time I checked he is black, not white. Our dislike of President Obama has never had anything to do with his race, it has to do with his policies. If liberals would examine the direction the Democratic Party is going, they would understand why there is no longer an official Socialist Party nominee. The man who ran on multiple occasions as the Socialist candidate stated that we no longer needed that to occur. Reason given: The Democratic Party has taken up their agenda and plans, moving so far to the left that it is no longer the same party many voted for in the past. He obviously is now a Democrat. The writer of Sounds Good, No Facts, should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable? Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks! If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture? Yes, its time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called Jobs bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep. Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America!

Our ladies gave a rousing cheer for that. There were a few of her items that were made in our neighboring Canada. Our models, Leila, Victoria, Holly and Eve all showed multiple outfits while I showed only one. Mine was a cute little number called Zebra. It was a low cut Zebra top (really low) with a black skirt and had a matching clutch. Leila, Eve and I all had a makeover by Lyndy. We have some before and after snaps of that.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com Three score and six years ago the Public Health Service brought forth upon this nation a dental discovery dedicated to the proposition that all teeth should be treated equally. Medical investigators had observed there was less tooth decay where water contained natural deposits of fluoride. The announced purpose of a national campaign to fluoridate drinking water was to make healthy teeth available to every citizen, especially young people. The safety, effectiveness, and legality of adding fluoride to public water supplies gave birth to a passel of unlicensed medical experts who suggested such dosing might generate terrible outbreaks of glandular disorders, kidney failures, defective immune systems, cancers, allergies, bone deterioration, and stomach distresses, including bloat. After AIDS was discovered, it was added to the list. A few paranoid hysterics suggested fluoridation of water was a communist conspiracy. Ignoring the naysayers and hysterics, in 1945 Grand Rapids, Michigan fluoridated its water and ignited a conflict which persisted for years and spawned a brigade of fluoride opponents. The American Dental Association says fluoride has proven to be the most effective method of preventing tooth decay. Until lately we assumed the fluoride controversy had long since gone to rest and that the accompanying hysterias had been quieted by availability of tranquility medications. One recent morning, after we had scrubbed our upper and lower bridges and had swished with a fluoride rinse, we browsed the daily paper and discovered the Pinellas County commissioners had voted 4 to 3 to unflouridate their drinking water. Around 65 percent of Americans drink fluoridated water many unknowingly. Their blissful consumption has now been disrupted by Pinellas County, and may have re-ignited a national controversy. The Pinellas County vote isnt all the fluoride news. In a followup article Associated Press reported the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service had changed their recommended level of fluoride in pubic water supplies, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has undertaken a review of the maximum milligrams per liter. The nanny state is on full alert. An opposition is also active. We were surprised to learn that a quiet but persistent anti-flouride movement exists under the banner Flouride Action Network. In cases like this were inclined to look to our founders for guidance. George Washington would say: If you had to spend a winter at Valley Forge eating nuts and half-cooked squirrels, you would vote for anything that might spare the next generation the pain and humiliation of uppers and lowers made of hippopotamus ivory on gold plates with springs. Because of his prejudiced view on this issue, we have to ignore Georges opinion. The other founders Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe would say: Unless theres something harmful in the water provided by Mother Nature, government has no authority to alter the liquid on which we depend for our survival and in which we bathe occasionally. Blessed are the founders for their constitutional wisdom. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 21, 2011 There are a lot of big games in the National Football League each week. Playoff spots are on the line as teams jockey for position in the standings. The Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins game is not one of those that the entire football nation will be watching with anxiety. That, however, doesnt apply to the state of Florida. The DenverMiami game will probably be the most popular in the state next weekend, especially since the Florida Gators have a week off to lick their SEC wounds. The coaching staff at Denver has chosen this week to make Tim Tebow the teams starting quarterback. If you dont know who Tim Tebow is, well, you probably dont watch much football. Tebow graduated from the University of Florida with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the Broncos amid all the skepticism that his throwing motion, among other things, was not NFL caliber. But Denvers previous quarterback, Kyle Orton, was doing so poorly that the job, for now at least, belongs to Tebow. Not only is Tebow starting for the opponent Sunday in Miami, Floridas national champions are being honored. So you know there are going to be Gator fans aplenty in the stadium. With the way the Dolphins have played this year, that might mean a crowd rooting for Denver, more specifically Tebow, this weekend. And another thing making this game more interesting is that the Dolphins are having a major problem ... at the quarterback position. Back when the 2010 draft was held, there were a lot of people in Florida hoping that either Jacksonville or Miami woul draft him (Tampa was pretty well set at the QB spot). That didnt happen, so getting a chance to see Tebow, in his home state, get a big start is a major plus. Im not a huge Gator fan, although some of it has to rub off on you when youve been forcefed Gator news for more than 40 years. I did enjoy watching Tebow, going all the way back to Nease High School in St. Johns County. He seemed like a charismatic leader, and a genuine good guy, and for that reason I was hoping he would make it big in the pros. It hasnt happened yet, but maybe this weekends game will be the first major step for the Florida grad. So come this weekend, Ill be settled down at home watching either the whole game itself or, if our exciting Orlando TV station decides to give us something else, the major highlights on NFL Red Zone. The way Jacksonville and Miami are playing, this could be the biggest game of the year for fans of those two teams (the Bucs of Tampa are in first place).Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

New parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccinepreventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, October 21, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, October 21, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... Had it not been eclipsed by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the end of World War II, this remarkable rescue story would be well known. Instead, Zuckoff retrieved it from the fog of 65 years and breathed new life into it, making it a gripping page turner. On May 13, 1945, in Dutch New Guinea, GIs bored while awaiting new orders, set out on a sightseeing flight. The group of 24 included pilots, nine WACs, and some enlisted men. Their destination was a hidden valley dubbed Shangri-La in the islands interior. Approaching the site involved a tricky maneuvering through a narrow mountain pass with unusual air drafts. Incredibly, at this point the most experienced pilot leaves the cockpit, turning the plane over to a somewhat green co-pilot. The C -27 crashes and burns in a dense jungle 150 aeronautical miles from the U.S. base. Only three survive a badly burned, beautiful WAC, Margaret Hastings, a young lieutenant whose twin brother perished in the crash, John McCollum, and a severely injured sergeant, Kenneth Decker. Stranded and threatened on all sides by warrior tribes and hostile Japanese hiding in the jungle, it will take every bit of bravery, loyalty, and trust they can summon up in order to survive. A canopy of trees makes the three invisible from the air, so McCollum as the highest-ranking officer orders his charges to trek to a clearing despite their injuries. Its slow going but a wise decision. Planes spot them and start dropping supplies. Landing is no option and neither is helicopter rescue because the mountain air is too thin. Back at the base they work 24/7 on a feasible rescue plan. Then spear-wielding natives appear, hundreds of them, naked except for penis gourds. Still living in the Stone Age they spare the survivors harm, thinking them spirits dropped from the sky. Subsequently, Medics parachute to the injured and paratroopers provide protection. When the rescue plan is finalized, its called the snatch. A glider is put in place in the clearing with a loop attached to the top. Then a C-47 at fifteen hundred feet above the valley floor with a pickup arm hanging below the planes belly grabs the gliders nylon loop and lifts it over the mountains and to safety. A great read. Crash story a good read P WPat Wellington BOOK MARK armed himself with a cutting instrument and assaulted her. He choked her until she passed out. The suspect was described as 35 to 45 years old, 5-feet-11 to 6-foot-3, heavy set, strawberry blond hair military style or buzz cut, mustache, tattoo on his neck and on both arms, possibly one a rebel flag with an eagle. The victim said there were baby items in the truck. On Oct. 12, a woman, 42, told police she was in the 2200 block of Northwest 7th Street when she was approached by a white male driving a blue or green minivan. She too was driven to a remote area and attacked.However, she was able to arm herself with a cutting instrument and was able to cut the man.The description of the man included similarities, including tattoos, and that he was wearing reading classes. She also said there were childrens toys in the vehicle.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted Moon Child. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturbing situation. Dont be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Its a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something spontaneous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good week to get advice on your plans. But dont act on them until you feel sure that youve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges. But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out of the way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or personal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest. Youll impress some very important people with what you can do. BORN THIS WEEK: You are impelled by a need to find truth, no matter how elusive. You would make a wonderful research scientist or an intrepid detective. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

It is not the frontal attack that is bleeding us white, it is through the back door with imports marked Made in China. This countrys manufacturing capacity stocked the shelves and rebuilt many countries after World War II. To add to the drain of our resources we have 761 military bases in 156 countries around the world and we have 3 million plus serving in the military. The defense budget for 2012 is between $1.03 trillion to $1.415 trillion. The federal budget for 2012 indicates a revenue of $2.627 trillion and expenditures of $3.729 trillion showing a deficit of $1.101 trillion. President Reagan said it best. Deficits arent caused by too little taxing, they are caused by too much spending. We have the knowledge and resources to fix the problems but do we have the will? Come along to this meeting. Your opinion is very important. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation toward their needs you may do so through our Secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Remember that we are proud Americans and proud to be Democrats. We look forward to the future with hope and pride in our country. God bless America.

BRIEFS Office closed Oct. 28 for move next doorThe office of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger at 8810 S.W. State Road 200 will be closed on Friday, Oct. 28, so that personnel can complete the move to a new office next door. The new address will remain the same, except that the suite number will change from 104 to 103. News deadlines will be early for the Messenger. News deadlines for the Citizen remain the same.Guinn becomes mayorLongtime City Council member Kent Guinn was elected mayor of Ocala on Thursday, handily defeating two challengers. With less than a 10 percent turnout, Guinn took in 52.06 percent of the votes cast, making a runoff unnecessary. Randall Alvord was second with 31 percent, and Rusty Juergens finished third with 16 percent. The election will be certified by the council today. Guinn replaces Randy Ewers, who chose not to run again.

An agreement had supposedly been reached to combine the dispatch services of the county and the city, lessening the need for transferring emergency calls from the original 9-1-1 call-taker, but the city backed out after an emotional meeting in which officials learned that a prominent employee had been told he was losing his job. The county commissioners didnt comment as they accepted a letter from the city negating a previous agreement, but shortly after, under commissioners comments, the subject came up. Chairman Stan McClain noted, We have to continue to work on that government is going to have to change the way it operates. He suggested a joint meeting with the city early next year. We have to continue to try. Commissioner Mike Amsden noted that there was already some common ground on the issues, and he noted examples such as ambulances, animal control, etc. Sometimes passion overlooks common sense of the issue. Commissioner Carl Zalak commented, Its not about us, its about the community. Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who received praise from her fellow commissioners for her efforts, said she would keep working at the merger. I havent given up. In other business, the county delayed an appointment to a housing board because one of the applicants had checked yes on an application where it asked if he had ever been convicted of a felony. The form didnt ask for any more information than that, and commissioners felt they needed more details. The county also set a Scenic Roads ordinance public hearing for Nov. 15. Dispatch merger rejected The retirement of Larry Thacker, assistant county administrator, drew a presentation at Tuesdays County Commission meeting, even though Thacker couldnt attend. On the agenda was a resolution honoring him, but Chairman Stan McClain had another surprise, a framed copy of a South Marion Citizenstory of Thackers retirement. The large gift will be given to Thacker as a memento of his days in county government. Thacker honored with Citizen story PHOTO BY LEO DUCHOSSOISFrom the left, representing Ocala Honor Flight: Red Zell, April Adams, Trey Adams, representing Spruce Creek Preserve Dee Winey, Jean Isabelle, Commander of Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club. On Oct. 18, at the annual Spruce Creek Preserve HOA meeting, Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club Commander Jean Isabelle and Dee Winey presented a check for $10,131.43 to Ocala Honor Flight Coordinators Trey Adams, April Adams, and Red Zell. The Honor Flight Network transports World War II veterans Veterans to Washington, D.C., to see their Memorial for which they waited over 60 years. Spruce Creek Preserve will have seven World War II veterans on the Oct. 27 Mission #4. It all began in May with a media article requesting Escorts for the June Ocala Honor Flight. Dee Winey, SCP resident, escorted on the June 14 Honor Flight and experienced the World War II Memorial with 104 veterans and their escorts. This was such a moving experience she approached the Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club to support the October Mission and get as many of our resident World War II veterans signed up for the Mission as possible. The project turned into a community wide event including direct donations from residents, businesses, and friends along with displays and donations accepted at the SR 200 Walmart and Reds Restaurant; and our Preserve Golf Club hosted a special event for Ocala Honor Flight. Our finale was Canteen Night at the Preserve with free desserts followed by live music, entertainment and a Chinese raffle/auction of over 25 items donated by our resident artists and businesses along the SR 200 corridor. Everyone is invited to welcome back all Ocala Honor Flight Veterans on Oct. 27 at the Ocala International Airport. The celebration begins at 8:15 p.m. arrive early and bring your flag. Honor Flight: Preserve raises more than $10,000 Occupy OcalaThe national protests being dubbed as Occupy Wall Street spread to downtown Ocala on Saturday as a group of a couple hundred people gathered with signs and stood on the sidewalk, asking passing drivers of vehicles who backed them to honk their horns.
