He would talk, but I wouldnt stop. I thought he was flirting with me. After a short pause, Margaret said, Maybe he was. That man in Dayton was Orville Wright, whose work in places such as that lab helped lead us to where we are in air travel today. Margaret turns 103 years old this weekend. As she has done every Thursday since the shop opened, she was in Shear Joy salon on Southwest 103rd Street Road last week to get her hair done. Owner Colleen Peluso and her staff celebrated with a birthday cake for the very sharp and alert Margaret. She lives with her daughter, Shirley Skaggs, in Cherrywood. She has another daughter, Marguerite Turner in Ohio. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKMargaret Kender, 103, gets her hair done by Colleen Peluso at Shear Joy. PLEASESEE103, PAGE3 On Saturday, Oct. 29, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, along with the Ocala Police Department and in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will participate in the National Pill Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Main Operations Center, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200/ Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents Medication Take Back Day is Saturday PLEASESEEPILLS, PAGE3 PHOTO BY PRISCILLA GEISSALA better viewFor the children, one of the great things about attending last weekends Ocala Art Festival was climbing the big tree at the McPherson Complex. Marion County Center for the Arts Omega Theatre Company will present the play Wait until Dark, Nov. 4-6 at the West Port High School Performing Arts Center, 3733 S.W. 80th Ave. in Ocala. Performances are Friday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and senior citizens. Parental discretion is strongly advised. This play contains violent content. The theatre will be completely dark for several minutes during the performance. For reservations, call -352-438-8368. Wait until Dark, written by Fredrick Knott, is a suspenseful thriller which was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967. The cast and crew of Wait until Dark consist of more than 30 students in the Marion County Center for the Arts acting and technical theatre program. The production is directed by Christopher Vaida who also served as technical director for the production. Production stage manager is Reem Okab, set design is by Ignacio Scannone, lighting design is by Justin Gonzalez, sound design is by Wilson Vinas, and costume design is by Zoe Miller and Corinne Proetto. Playing the role of Suzy is Jessica Hirsch, a senior in the acting and musical theatre programs. After first reading Wait until Dark, I really thought that this was a play unlike anything I have ever seen. Its a top notch thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. There are plenty of movies like that, but not many stage plays. So, its refreshing to be energized in that whats going to happen next kind of way, Hirsch states. Other cast members include Keaton Long, Peter Buffie, Krista Alvarado, Alex Hernandez, Brendien Mitchell, Thomas Brugger, and Michael Arvay. The Marion County Center for the Arts (MCCA) is a magnet program for gifted and talented high school students in the performing and visual arts. Students can elect a major course of study in visual art, dance, music, and theatre, while taking core academic, honors, advanced placement, and dual enrollment classes.

She was born in 1908 in Dayton, and one of her earliest memories was what is called the Great Flood of Dayton in March, 1913. She didnt elaborate, but a lookup on the Internet found that parts of Dayton were under 20 feet of water from the Miami River, and this led to one of the nations first flood control projects. She had two sisters, and two brothers, and went to Holy Name School in Dayton. I helped my mother by working in a factory. She moved to Florida, in the Astor area along State Road 40 east of Ocala, because her husband loved to go fishing. This was her second husband. After her first spouse died, she met up with a boy she knew in the first grade, ironically, at a wake, and thats the man who brought her to Florida. After her first wedding she had two children, but the Great Depression was just around the corner. We had it rough. We had bought a home and a car, but we couldnt pay for both, so we had to sell the car to pay for the house. She said her husband would bring home $18 a week. We walked everywhere. Last week her daughter from Ohio called and said she had heard from Prudential, that they still had her on the books, and that she was due some money. She wasnt sure how much. Like many others past retirement age, she is also aware of scams, and a recent call that asked for her age and name to do with Social Security set off warning bells. Her daughter did the follow-up to make sure she wasnt being gypped. After Colleen finished putting Margarets hair up, she went to sit under a dryer, where the staff surprised her with a cake and a song, and later in the day would head back to Cherrywood, her home since 1997.

Starting this month, utility customers who replace old toilets with new, water-efficient models could be eligible for toilet rebates. Qualifying customers who replace one toilet could receive up to $100 in rebates; those who replace a second toilet will be eligible for up to another $80 in reimbursements. The rebates will be issued as water bill credits. To qualify, an individual must: Be a Marion County Utilities water customer in good standing. Live in a home built prior to 1995. Plan to replace a toilet of 3.5 or more gallons. Call to verify eligibility and reserve the rebate at 1-800-964-2140. Customers are encouraged to reserve their rebate as soon as possible since only 1,400 rebates are available this year. Toilets installed prior to 1995 typically use 3.5 or more gallons of water with each flush. New models use only between 1.2 1.6 gallons per flush. Replacing just one high-flow toilet with an ultra low-flow toilet could save more than 1,000 gallons of water per month. Marion County Utilities funds the Toilet Rebate Program in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Withlacoochee River Basin Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. County utility offers toilet rebate Do you own or manage a horse farm as a business, large or small? Would you like to know where your hobby farm will fit in with legislation in the near future?

Some of the fashions will be modeled by members of the club. Venie Halgrim, co-chair of the committee, has selected many delicious and flavorful teas and various finger sandwiches and sweets. She noted, The price of the ticket remains the same, $12 each. It is a great value for the money and the tickets go fast. I would advise calling early to reserve and prepay for your tickets, bring a friend. It is a delightful day out, the fashions are beautiful and the food is delicious.

Check the Pioneer website at pioneergardenclub.org.30~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Pioneer Garden Club planning its fashion show Calendar In 15 thrillers, nomadic Jack Reacher has been dispensing vigilante justice. Now in Childs 16th novel, the author gives us a prequel showing us Reacher as an army major and setting up the circumstances that led to his leaving the service. In an early scene of The Affair Reacher says, The clock in my head woke me at five, two hours before dawn on Friday, March 7, 1997. The first day of the rest of my life. His orders: go undercover to a rural Mississippi town near Fort Kelham, keep your distance and monitor the investigation of a young murdered woman. There is constant pressure from the Pentagon to catch her killer but only if hes a civilian. The local sheriff is beautiful Elizabeth Deveraux who immediately blows Jacks cover because she was once a Marine MP and knows a thing or two. Gradually, they work together under difficult conditions. They cant get near the base because a shadow force has formed a quarantine zone around it. The base is unusual in at least one respect: Fort Kelham was still operating as a legitimate Ranger training school in addition to being used to house two full companies of grown up Rangers, both hand picked from the 75th Ranger Regiment, designated Alpha Company and Bravo Company, who deployed covertly to Kosovo on a rotating basis, a month at a time. The remote location of northeastern Mississippi was a perfect cover for the secret operation. Shortly after arriving in tiny Carter Crossing, Reacher learns that other young women have been murdered prior to the most recent case in similar fashion. Thus, the narrative tension generated is whether Jack Reacher is going to protect the Armys interests or act on the truth wherever that leads him. While working the case, Deveraux and Reacher slowly fall in love over countless cheeseburgers and peach pie servings in the towns only diner. The story unfolds in formulaic thriller style with a surprise ending each chapter to keep the reader engaged. This novel which fills in the gaps in Reachers background should interest his many fans. In the meanwhile, many of those fans are outraged at the casting of Child ninth novel for the movie One Shot. Burly, 6-foot-5 Reacher will be played by diminutive Tom Cruise.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 28, 2011 This is Halloween weekend, the time for Trick or Treating all across the land. Children of all ages, sizes and shapes will dress up and look for goodies. The problem is that the caution that children are taught the other 364 days of the year usually goes out the window, as they approach strangers houses and unfamiliar neighborhoods looking for rewards. In this day and age, thats not a good idea. Our paper has been filled with schedules of various Halloween events that are being held this weekend. Parents should take their children to the various gatherings conducted by responsible people and let their children enjoy the festivities with others in a safe atmosphere. In our area, there are various churches that do things to entertain the youngsters. One of the biggest gatherings in western Ocala is at the Sheriffs substation on State Road 200, where a host of activities are planned on Monday from 5 to 9 p.m., all under the supervision of sheriffs personnel. However, be aware that these volunteers from law enforcement are not babysitters. Parents should take the responsibility of being with their children throughout the event (and weve seen some parents in the past who have some pretty good costumes). If youre a parent or guardian, and you children have gone out into a neighborhood for the evening, stress upon them that they should not eat anything until youve had a chance to check it first. When your children get home, look over all the food they received. Its a little sad that we have to warn people about things like this, but thats how the world we live in has evolved. Even innocent children arent immune from those who would try to hurt us in some way. Parents, grandparents and guardians have to be vigilant, and this is the time of the year when we all have to be more careful about our little ones. So enjoy the holiday, in moderation, and take care of our children. And thanks go out to all the volunteers at all the churches and organizations who try to make things just a little safer for all of us.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

It was hardly more than a footnote on last weeks County Commission agenda, but the county accepted a letter from the city of Ocala pulling out of the negotiated agreement to combine emergency dispatch services. The county had little choice. Thats too bad. Its too bad because the people in the city will be the ones who suffer. Since they pay county taxes, its their taxes that help fund Marion County Fire Rescue, but they also have to pay taxes to support Ocala Fire Rescue. Combining the dispatch services would not only have made the operation more efficient, it would have saved the taxpayers of the city about half a million dollars. One of the comments at a recent City Council meeting concerned the fact that a county crew was dispatched to a city fire recently, as was a city crew. Problem was, the county crew got there first. Shouldnt that be an argument, not only for combining dispatch services to get a response the fastest possible way, but even possibly for merging the two departments into one unit. When you sit back and think of it, theres a definite disadvantage to having two separate fire rescue units operating in the same area, with calls determined by a city-county dividing line that in many cases is so imaginary and convoluted that people dont know where it is. Someone could be dying while someone is trying to figure out which agency should answer the call. This is not a knock on the individuals who serve as firefighters and medical personnel on these emergency runs. When they get there, theyre going to take care of you no matter where you are located. Its getting them there through a duplicative dispatch system that is the problem. The city of Ocala has successfully protected its own little corner of the world but at the expense of its citizens safety and pocketbooks. The last time we looked, Ocala was a part of Marion County. Maybe its City Council ought to start acting that way.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Protecting turf, at our expense Please keep it safe this Halloween Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY RICH LOWRY Special to the CitizenFar from the street theater and lefty ravings of the Occupy Wall Street protest, ordinary people are posting dispatches about their economic struggles at the "We Are the 99 Percent" Web page. If you put aside the political rants, the stories are a stark pointillist portrayal of the grinding misery of the Great Recession. And Bank of America has very little to do with it. The recession has added a layer of joblessness on top of punishingly dysfunctional and expensive health-care and higher-education systems. Despite themselves, the people posting at the 99 Percent page aren't really making an implicit case for burning down the financial system, but for blowing up how we handle health care and higher education. College students and recent graduates are overrepresented. Their complaint comes down to too much debt, and too few job opportunities to get out from under it. There's the guy with the master's from Harvard who owes $60,000 and lives off temp jobs. There's the woman who is paying her $50,000 debt and the $20,000 debt for her 22-year-old daughter. And on and on. The representatives of these debt-burdened graduates shouldn't be at Zuccotti Park, but at the American Association of University Professors or some other arm of the academic complex that gouges students. College tuition has been increasing at a rapid clip. Does anyone believe that higher ed is getting constantly better? It's an inflationary spiral, partly driven by a federal student-loan program that feeds the maw of the beast regardless of quality or outcomes. Another running theme is the high cost of health care and the lack of insurance. One man writes of his job "that pays 15 percent less than it did five years ago" even as "health insurance costs are up over 175 percent." Expressing a characteristic plaint in an era of stagnating income, he says "Everything costs more, yet I make less!" Many of those posting their stories are members of the working class or struggling middle class. There is an undercurrent of family breakdown -the woman whose husband left her after 30 years, the hard-pressed single moms. There are tales of men losing decent-paying jobs and finding nothing comparable. The puerile ideology of Occupy Wall Street is irrelevant to all of this. Goldman Sachs could be dissolved tomorrow and the wealth of the 1 percent confiscated, and it wouldn't make college or health care cheaper, or create one new job. If the "revolution" yearned for by the protesters is insipid, there's no doubt that the moment calls for bold economic reforms and a rethinking of health care and higher education. President Barack Obama's misbegotten contribution is a health-care law that won't control costs and will insure more people only while making the current system more unsustainable. Republicans often don't even bother to try to connect their program to the troubles of workers down the income scale. The leading establishment Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, wants to cut their capital-gains taxes. The leading tea party presidential candidate, Herman Cain, wants to raise their taxes. If nothing else, "We Are the 99 Percent" is a reminder that the suffering is real.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) It might be a good idea to ease up on that hectic pace and spend more time studying things youll need to know when more opportunities come later in November. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A relatively quiet time is now giving way to a period of high activity. Face it with the anticipation that it will bring you some welldeserved boons and benefits. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Go with the flow, or make waves? Its up to you. Either way, youll get noticed. However, make up your own mind. Dont let anyone tell you what choices to make.

Time for tax reformOur IRS tax system is broken and must be replaced! Its full of loopholes and contradictions, and is so complicated its nearly impossible to interpret and administer. The size of the tax code is 70,000+ pages and still growing. Mindboggling! Just to comply with the requirements of the IRS code (filling out tax forms, hiring tax-preparers, etc.), the 2012 compliance costs will be $363 billion. The IRS budget for 2012 is $13 billion. When these costs are factored in, for every $1 expended because of IRS requirements, the IRS collects just $6 in tax revenues. Not a very impressive bang for our buck! This $6 is revenue that will be used to bolster our sagging economy. But, we cant do too much bolstering with only $6. By comparison, fair tax administrative costs will be about $19 billion. For each $1 expended on fair tax, America realizes $136 in tax revenues 22 times the IRSs meager $6. Brief descriptions of the two most talked about types of tax replacement follow: 1. Flat tax: a single-rate tax on income. The concept is an adequate one considering the unfair, multiple-rates we currently have. However, it requires a portion of our existing tax structure which is in disrepair to administer it. And, Congress can pass exceptions to the singlerate until it eventually begins to look like the tax code we now have. Also, a flat tax will not capture the legal and illegal activities of the underground economy. These activities are an estimated $1.3 trillion annually in untaxed earnings. 2. Fair tax: a national consumption or sales tax on the purchase of new goods. It is not income driven. Everybody keeps 100 percent of everything they earn; people always know exactly how much money they have and how much they can spend. The poor are treated more fairly than they are under our current tax system. People are taxed at 23 percent but only on the new things they purchase. The more an entity earns the more things it will buy and the more revenue America will have. The only negative to a fair tax, is that it hasnt yet been implemented. One GOP presidential hopeful proposes a 999 Plan which combines the above two: a 9 percent corporate and 9 percent personal flat tax combined with a 9 percent fair tax. It is better than what we have now, however, considering the above, a standalone fair tax plan is much more logical. If you are truly concerned about Americas future, you must eagerly support the implementation of a tax replacement. Politicians may tell you they support tax reform, but unless they actively push for it, they probably dont. If they dont actively support tax reform, tell them you wont vote for them in 2012. Please begin your tax replacement research at FairTax.org. Its the right thing to do and this is the time to do it.

These self proclaimed champions of the down trodden, are ready to pounce at a moments notice, but are their motives pure? Their tactics legal, or moral? Why are they entitled to the lifestyles, and compensation, of any Robber Baron, off the backs of these unfortunates? They extort money from the down trodden, while holding themselves out as their champions. What a crock. The union leaders are in it for the power, money, and status it gives to them. Bullying can be fun, and profitable. It is our money that pays for all of the extortion that occurs. It is always our money that pays for everything. Costs go up. We pay. Look how they strong arm anyone who asks for a secret ballot when union votes are taken. If that is not bullying, I do not know what is. Recently a woman testified to Congress that her group was denied by the court, a secret ballot on a choice to join or reject the union. What kind of garbage is that? Is this America anymore? I do not recognize it. The college duffers at OWS are living proof of the value of a college education, today. Free tuition, free tuition is their mantra. Forgive my debt; I took the money, now I do not want to pay it back. Any time anyone yells free any more my ears perk up; it means I am going to have to be paying once more for someone elses largesse. I cannot afford any more free stuff. I am at a point where I am about to need free stuff myself. Who will pay for my free stuff? Any volunteers? The leaders will still live like princes, if not kings, I will live as I did during the Depression. Our resources are finite, not infinite. When will we learn? D.I. Larson OcalaCorporations and unionsMany people criticize corporations and their executives on the poor leadership of their companies failure to make good business decisions while competing with other companies. Others blame the unions and their organizations leaders for the failure of companies to make a profit. One hundred percent of all companies have executives who are in charge of the business and responsible for production and profits for their own companies. Compare that with 15 percent of the workforce who are unionized and working for these companies. You be the judge on who is responsible for the bottom line profits of these companies. If businesses are failing, its because of the poor job of the 100 percent who are executives and not the 15 percent who are unionized workers who are doing their jobs as instructed. For the few of you who understand math, you realize its the bad decisions from the top 100 percent that is killing our businesses and not the workers who are getting the blame. Jerry Segovis OcalaExplaining deductiblesLast week one of the letters asked: Why The Deductibles? I believe that was a serious question and may be one which many of us have due to not fully understanding how the insurance companies set premiums. Simply, if there were no deductibles, the cost of the insurance would increase dramatically due to the huge difference in the cost of handling many more claims. This cost would be passed down to us, the insured, not absorbed by the insurance company. If I am willing to absorb more of the upfront small claim costs through a larger deductible, I will benefit by having a lower premium. The companies do not benefit by your having higher or lower deductibles because they will set premiums to cover their expenses of administration and claims experience. As an example, check with your insurance company into how much effect the different deductibles can have on the premium charged if you are willing and able to handle a larger deductible. This applies to home, auto and health insurance. In light of the above, I trust you can understand why there is no need for a deductible in life insurance. The only claim expense incurred by the insurance company is at your death, which obviously only happens once. The other coverages are subject to dozens of claims throughout the lifetime of the policy depending on many factors such as driving habits, your health and even acts of GOD. The premium charged normally reflects your individual circumstances. Insurance does spread the risk among many that we as individuals cannot comfortably bear alone. I was in the Life Insurance business for over 40 years and am still amazed at the miracle of Life Insurance. The financial makeup of the company to insure all claims are paid, regardless of time of death, is an actuarial wonder. I am now retired, but if you still have questions, feel free to call me, Im in the phone book.

An attempt at a routine traffic stop turned into a 110 mph chase on Oct. 24 and resulted in multiple charges against the alleged driver. Eric Danzell Humbert Jr. of 107th Place, Dunnellon, faces charges of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, felony fleeing and eluding, resisting without violence and no valid drivers license. According to the report, a deputy on patrol on West State Road 40 spotted a car straddling the yellow line. When he got behind the car it switched lanes and the deputy turned on his emergency lights. Instead of stopping, the driver sped up. At the intersection of State 40 and U.S. 41, the suspect vehicle ran over some stop sticks that had been placed by another deputy. Both left tires went flat, but he kept going on U.S. 41, got to the Chatmire area and fled on foot. A K-9 unit helped track him, and Humbert was arrested an charged. Marijuana was found in the vehicle. According to jail records, the 20-year-old Humbert Jr. had been arrested earlier this month on similar fleeing and no drivers license charges. He also had the same charges in November 2009. He also faced cocaine charges in March of 2009. A Northeast Ocala man was accused of retail grand theft after an incident at Bealls. David Allan Parsley, 47, of Northeast 13th Avenue, was accused of taking 18 belts, tying them around himself under his shirt and trying to leave with them. He was spotted by a loss prevention officer and detained until a deputy arrived. The belts had a total value of $464.Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com tions that want part of the pie. There are developers who make over $9 million dollars a year from amenities fees and dont expend but a minimal part of that amount on so called services like so called security, with gates manned by senior citizens, lawn watering from retention ponds and lawn mowing at a cost of about $8 per lawn. Of course Part B of Medicare will increase as always. But, thats minimal. Its the amenities fees that will take a large chunk. I know mine have increased 34 percent from the original amount we paid when we moved here. Most of amenities fees are scams as services that are being charged are for non-existent services. Maybe Obama isnt too far wrong to tax those with high incomes and lower taxes on lower income families. Think about that. Theres an old song that goes in part, The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Bill Ford OcalaFEMA fundingYour columnist on Oct. 7 accused the Democrats of Unlimited spending and vote gathering. They Democrats are simply requesting additional funding for FEMA so that Americans can get help when disaster strikes. We are spending $6.7 billion a month in Afghanstan and Republicans dont want to help our own people to recover from a disaster, how cruel? He then has the gall to praise the Republicans for their unwavering commitment to frugality Where has this columnist been for the last three Republican Presidents? Reagan ran the debt up 20.6 percent in two terms, Bush 1 increased the debt by 13 percent. Democrat, Clinton, reduced the National Debt by 9.7 percent and handed over a $256 billion surplus to Bush 2, who squandered the surplus and ended up with an increase in the National Debt of 27 percent. They all must have forgotten about the Republican commitment to frugality. We now have a Democrat in the White House and the Republicans have suddenly been converted to fiscal conservatives. John Toner Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Check out our websitewww.smcitizen.com Is it just me, or do others have trouble catching up? Just when it looks like I am almost caught up with some project or my todo-list, something happens setting me back a few paces. One step forward, as they say and for me 17 steps backward. Or, so it seems. I dont have any problem whatsoever catching a cold. I once even caught a fly in my mouth while preaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch the dickens from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Catching up is another matter all together. Two things happened last week that brought this to my attention. First, I took someone out to lunch. That in itself is not outstanding. My wife tells me I am out to lunch all the time. Have you ever tried to impress someone by taking them out to lunch and insist on paying for lunch? That is exactly what I did this past week. Why I ever try to impress anyone is beyond my wifes wildest imagination, but I try, much to her chagrin. With a couple of hours to spare, my friend called me. Immediately I set into action a plan to meet him at the restaurant for lunch on me. We had a grand time catching up on each others life. Personally, I was thrilled to Catch Up on something. Unfortunately, I thought I was on a roll with ham and cheese. It was delicious to enjoy this brief time if only for a moment, but all good things do end. Things were about to turn ugly. No, someone did not bring me a mirror. Instead, the affable waitress brought me the check. Normally, this would not be a problem. I would accept the check after some friendly banter with the waitress complaining about the amount and threatening not to tip her and she threatening to tell my wife. We all smiled and then it happened. I casually reached around to my back pocket to extract my wallet containing my credit card with which I would pay the check.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com person causing me to freeze in petrifying fear. My first thought, I had someone elses trousers on. But whose? More important, where was the man wearing my trousers? I smiled one of those smiles that says, Oops, Im in trouble but I dont want anyone to know. My friend sensed something was wrong; friends are like that. Looking at me he said, Is anything wrong? Being the truthful person I am, I said, Wrong? What could be wrong? Weve just enjoyed a great time together. No, nothings wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong. One problem with friends is they always know when you are lying. My friend was no different. He just looked at me and said, OK, whats wrong? I may have trouble catching up but I have no trouble whatsoever being caught with my pants down. Well, maybe not quite down but certainly empty. Nothing is sadder than a man wearing empty trousers. Did you forget your wallet? my friend asked with delight dancing in his eyes. He happily paid the tab but I will never live it down. The second incident also had to do with my wallet. Although this time, I did not forget my wallet. I had an early morning meeting across town. I knew my car was running on fumes but no need to worry. I left the house early enough to stop and gas up. Pulling out of my driveway, I noticed the gas gauge was lower than I remembered it being the night before. A tinge of terror gripped my mind and I earnestly prayed I would get to the gas station on time. I sighed with relief as I approached a gas station. The station had just opened and the sign on the pump informed me I needed to pay for the gas before pumping it. No problem. I ambled in, presented my credit card and purchased $20 worth of gas. There is a good feeling associated with a schedule well in hand. I glanced at my watch and noticed I was two minutes ahead of schedule. With a whistle on my lips and air between my ears, I got into my car and drove away. Two miles later, I glance at the gas gauge and noticed it had not moved. I tapped the gauge and nothing happened. At that time, the car sputtered and coughed ominously. Then, like a bolt of lightening, it struck me. I had paid for the gas and drove away without pumping it into my car. By this time, the car engine stopped and I had just enough momentum to pull to the side of the road. I sat there a few minutes pondering my dilemma. I knew what I had to do but I did not want to do it. Slowly, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the dreaded number. The phone rang and in a moment, I heard myself speaking into the phone, Honey, can you Waiting for my wife to bring a can of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17 KJV). Good intentions must be accompanied with appropriate action.The Rev. James L.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Anyone who stops in at Southern Style Hair Salon during November will be helping the Toys for Tots program. Donna Hawley says that her shop will give $1 from each customer to Toys for Tots, and her shop will also be the only drop-off point for toys in Steeplechase. Southern Style is between Bealls and Save-a-Lot. She and her staff showed off a poster which was brought in by Marine Corps League members George Robinson and Jim McCarthy last week. Toys for Tots has moved its headquarters to Jasmine last year the group was in Steeplechase. The South Marion Citizenoffice, 8810 S.W. State Road 200, Suite 103, will also be a drop-off location for toys after Nov. 1. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKCutline: Shown with the poster are, from the left, Jim McCarthy, Juanita Newman, Natasha Grant, Donna Hawley, Dagmar Tuskens, Jean Barnum and George Robinson. Get your hair done, support Toys for Tots Author Chappell to read at CF poetry seriesThe College of Central Florida will present the eighth annual Debra Vazquez Memorial Poetry Series in November with featured author Fred Chappell. The reading is on Thursday, Nov. 3, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ewers Century Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. There is no cost to attend and a book signing will follow. Chappell is the author of 30 volumes of poetry, fiction and literary criticism. His most recent works include Ancestors and Others: New and Selected Stories, 2009, and Shadow Box, 2009. His books of poetry include Spring Garden: New and Selected Poems, 1995, and Backsass, 2004. He is the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the Bollingen Prize, the T.S. Eliot Prize, and the Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger from the Academie Franaise for best foreign book. A founding member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers, Chappell retired after 40 years from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where his students included other celebrated writers such as Reynolds Price and Anne Tyler. Writing in the Los Angeles Times Book Review, Frank Levering stated: Not since James Agee and Robert Penn Warren has a Southern writer displayed such masterful versatility. Together with only a handful of his American contemporaries, Chappell reminds us of the almost forgotten phrase man of letters.

WOODBURY Special to the CitizenTis the season for yard sales! Joy Lutheran Evangelical Church, on State Road 200 in Ocala, had a huge one on Saturday, Oct. 22. What is a yard sale? It is also known as a garage sale, rummage sale, tag sale, attic sale, moving sale, or barn sale. It is an event for the sale of used items by private individuals, and no licenses are required nor taxes collected. Typically the items on sale are unwanted items from one household or multiple households. The items can be new, like-new or just usable, and offered for sale. The popular motivation for these sales is spring cleaning or maybe fall cleaning. Sometimes items are for sale because people are moving or just need some wellearned spending money. Typically the sale venue is a garage, driveway, front yard, porch or even the interior of a house. The staples of these sales can range from books, toys, household items to garden tools and sports equipment. The origin of the modern day yard sale is not really known. For centuries, people have simply laid out a few items on a table or a blanket and bartered for goods and services in exchange for other items of like value or whatever currency that was appropriate for their location. In the USA, the act of going to garage sales has spawned the use of a new verb known as garage saleing. Garage sales have taken on a special meaning to a community and have become events of special local significance. In these situations large areas of a community hold a communal garage sale involving dozens or hundreds of families at the same time. According to Patty Corey, Joy church member, and original organizer of this event since 2005, this is a Womens Evangelical Lutheran Church Association (W.E.L.C.A.) project. It first started as a crafts bazaar until it grew to its current yard sale event. Over the years the women have found the event to be profitable and have used the proceeds to support the building fund and renovate Swenson Fellowship Hall. They have purchased new carpeting, a dishwasher and chairs. They also support some charities with the proceeds. Supportive to the women are the many men who help to make this event successful, especially with the heavy lifting and with the tools and sports equipment. So last Saturday, the garage sale-ing people were lined up before 7 a.m. Often times the early birds are collectors, restorers or resellers who are searching for bargains or for rare and unusual items. Joys sale had many of the small items, household goods, handmade quilts, Christmas decorations and craft items all in the inside of the building. They had a tasty display of baked goods for sale in the kitchen area. Outside there was a coffee shack where you could have a cup or buy a pound of organically, shade grown, South American coffee. In the garage, outside, were many larger items, from cots, lawn furniture, golf clubs, garden tools and more. Some of the customers were looking for specific items, some were just looking. Walking into this large amasses of items, someone said, Oh! I dont know where to start. Many of the folks had been coming to this sale each year where others had read the article in the newspaper or saw the sign on the highway. People came mostly from around Ocala but there were a few from farther away such as Lake City and the country of Norway. And, it wasnt just women who come to yard sales, there were many men represented. One man said, I usually sit in the car while my wife shops, but one day I came in and I got hooked. The cyber age has literally changed the way the world shops. You often hear people say they purchase everything they need or want right online. It would be sad to see fewer yard sales in lieu of shopping online. The mood of this event was friendly, cheerful and bustling with conversation a really nice social experience. Joy Lutheran holds huge yard sale Eight year old Edward and 3 year old Elena found the toys they wanted at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Linda Aker, one of the helpers, showed the Christmas decorations for sale. Solvor Rorkjar, from Norway, found just the hat she wanted. Photos by Norman Halvorsen The yard sale included a coffee shack and Walt Padgett offered a cup of coffee or a pound of coffee to purchase. Gaye Fulsom and June Campbell, from Ocala, were pleased to find a cot that they needed at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Outdoors at the Joy Lutheran Yard Sale there were many tools and sporting equipment available. 0009GVQ Hawthorne Village of Ocala Fri., Oct. 28th 6pm-8pm Pictures in the Pumpkin Patch Haunted Hallway Hawthorne Health and Rehab Center 4100 SW 33rd Ave., Ocala, FL 352-237-7776 Music Entertainment Safe Trick or Treating Fall Plant Sale 1-8pm 0009LV9 Associated Plumbing and Pipe Residential and Commercial 352-804-9165 EPA Lead Certification #NAT-113266-1 OSHA 10 #1216933 Fla.

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.

Although our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month (and does quite well, by the way), its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 1, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past eight years. This year, however, they will be assisted by Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. Weve collected 8,437 pounds of food (in our annual drives) since 2004, remarked Gloria. Our best year was in 2009, when the total was over 1,500 pounds. With all this talent working together, and with our help, this years food drive is bound to be another success. So over the next month, lets do our best to make this year even better and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes. All donations are gratefuly accepted. Patrol K-9 Benefit a huge successIt takes a community of dedicated individuals to hold an event that is not only fun but which benefits a good cause. Months of preparation went into planning the K-9 Benefit Luncheon held on Oct. 9 in the Lifestyle Center. From selling tickets, to procuring door prizes; making flyers and posters, to decorating and clean-up (not to mention all the paperwork), the Patrol K-9 Benefit Committee had it all covered. Chaired by Nancy Rife, the committee was composed of Ginger Abbott, Joan Buzzek, Mary Callahan, Ed DeMauex, Pat Mershimer, Charlie Mock, Lorraine Moran, Martha Nierenberg, Carol Pfeil, Joan Ritter, Donna Schmidt and Howard Shay. Musical entertainment was provided by our own Jackie Santone, Dotty Bouchet and Lina Vallejo; and the K-9 demonstration by Lt. Turner and Bolt was just amazing. The luncheon was catered by My Sons Catering, who generously contributed a portion of the ticket sales to the cause. At the end of it all, at the Oct. 11 Tuesday Morning Social, Patrol President Rich Toneske presented a check for $1,325 to Mary Callahan, president of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Foundation. After expressing her gratitude on behalf of the Foundation, Mary assured everyone that the donation will go into the Foundations restricted K-9 Unit fund. So, thank you volunteers for all your hard work; thank you to the businesses that donated goods and services for our door prizes; thank you to our residents for supporting the luncheon; and thank you especially to our Marion County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit for protecting us and our community.Annual fall sale open to the publicThe Marion Landing fall sale will be on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center. Previously known as the Bazaar, the Sale is open to the public and will feature items such as jewelry, books, linens, tools, baked goods, and various household items.

Competition has been fierce, with two teams having earned 19 to 21 points. Team OSIMA was leading with 21 points, with teams High Hopes and Lucky 7 only one point behind. The Better Bs and Four for Fun teams were only to points behind. Individual results have seen some great games, with Bill Hull scoring a game 75 pins over his average and Bill Shampine knocking down 96 pins over his average in his three-game series. For the women, Judy Shuster was 80 pins over her average in one game. Lacoste Riers has the highest mens average through the four week period and Linda McIntyre leads the women. One more bowler is still needed to complete the goal of 18 teams. Bowlers compete on Monday afternoons. Please call League Secretary George Difrancesco if you are interested in joining a group of bowlers who know how to have fun! Circle Square Commons MarketThe current hours for the market are 5 to 8 p.m. The hours for November through May 4, 2012 will be 4 to 7 p.m. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 BY HARRY CHAMBERS Special to the CitizenThe day came... and after much planning and preparation it could not have gone any better. Some of the Palm Cay Anglers left Friday, a day before the fishing event, and stayed the night in Daytona with friends and family. And then some of us got up early and met at 4 a.m. (yes I said 4 a.m.) on a Saturday morning at the Oasis and set the GPS for Ponce Inlet, Florida. In less than two hours we reached our destination and there she was, the Sea Spirit. Behind this beautiful fishing lady (our boat and crew) the water glistened and off to the left, a light house with the bright light showing the way to the open sea. We got on board, selected our positions on the boat and after about a 90minute ride, the captain said drop those lines and good luck. We fished... and we fished. I looked to my left and watched as Cal Goude fought and won a fight with a red fish that weighed in at over 20 pounds. The fish was out of season and had to be released. We watched (happy for the fish but sad for Cal) as the fish was returned to the sea. Mean time, little fishies were being caught by all and we were having a blast. This writer was extremely excited when a grouper weighing over 28 pounds took the bait, and one of the very helpful crew assisted in bringing that monster on board with a gaffe hook. The weather was beautiful and the trip rewarding. The Sea Spirit returned to her home port and the gracious captain and crew cleaned and packed our fish for us before we departed for home. The owner of the ship, Capt. Mike, took a moment to personally thank the Palm Cay anglers for fishing with his fleet family. If you missed the adventure, we plan to do it again in April before our winter residents leave for the summer. Check out the Palm Cay entertainment listings for more on this and many other exciting events planned for you, located at the bulletin board in the Oasis.

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).

Candy corn and other candy packages have taken over an entire aisle and customs fill up most of another aisle in the stores. Wispy appearances of ghosts, globins, and witches seem to be permeating the area. With Halloween this coming Monday, Pun Alley cant resist going there for some haunts and ghostly stories. Actually, Halloween is a distortion of its original name. A long ago butcher tradition was to give customers empty sausage skins at the end of October. This day was known as Hollow Weenie Day.Frankly FrankensteinDespite his evil reputation, Frankenstein actually had a good sense of humor; he kept his monster in stitches. When the monster rose from the table and spat on the ground, the proud doctor exclaimed, Its saliva! Its saliva! Doctor Frankensteins assistant, Igor, was also a doctor and together they were a pair o docs. When they decided to stop making monsters, Igor found a new job at an auto dealership as parts manager. Frankenstein has a new ghoul friend. Hed previously dated a lady scarecrow but went from rags to witches.Little hauntsPeople who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. During the day baby ghosts go to day scare centers. There arent any famous skeletons because theyre a bunch of no bodies. You dont have to be concerned about Daylight Saving Time at Halloween. The holiday is always on Green Witch Mean Time. You always find ghouls and demons together because demons are a ghouls best friend. Programmers get Christmas and Halloween mixed up because 25 DEC equals 31 OCT. Mummies hide by wearing masking tape. If you broke your Jack-olantern you can fix it with a pumpkin patch. Two ghosts were arguing. One wanted to do something difficult. The other ghost said, You dont stand a man of a chance! A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. A ghost was assigned to a new territory. After a few days he asked the boss ghost, Can I go back to my old haunts? If you see twin witches you wont be able to tell which witch is which. On Halloween, a little boy knocked on Johns door. The boy took a look at Johns wife in her mudpack and gave her his candy.Pointed adviceOh, doctor, cried a wild-eyed man, Im dreadfully afflicted. The ghosts of my departed relatives come and perch on the tops of the fence posts all around my garden when dusk is falling. I can look out any evening and see a couple of dozen spooks sitting on the fence, waiting, waiting, and waiting. What shall I do? Sharpen the tops of the posts, advised the doctor. Yummy mummy talesA number of movies featuring the mummy have drawn enormous audiences who watch the action in Horrorscope. The mummys mummy was also an entertainer a famous gauza stripper. Off the silver screen the mummy isnt very popular with the other monsters. They think hes egotistical because hes all wrapped up in himself. Being interested in band ages, he loves music, his favorite style being wrap. He would love to take a vacation at the Dead Sea, but hes afraid that hell relax and unwind too much. A sign in the Egyptian funeral home says, Satisfaction guaranteed or your mummy back.Spell timeAfter a lifetime of hunching over her bubbling cauldron muttering incantations and concocting various enchanted brews, the witch finally came to the realization that she was no longer in her prime. In addition to the pronounced dowagers hump she had developed, her arthritic feet were an almost constant source of pain and torment for her. One evening as she began the tedious task of mincing up a fresh batch of bat tongues and newt eyes, an idea suddenly dawned upon her. If she had a smaller, more portable cutting board, she might just as easily process these ingredients in her lap as she was comfortably seated beside her boiling cauldron. Ah, yes, She muttered to herself. It would be nice to be able to sit for a spell.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Tax-Aide seeks volunteers for Marion County work Ocala Palms to hold saleThe Ocala Palms community will be opened to visitors for their annual Arts and Crafts Fair featuring more than 50 vendors on Nov. 5 inside the communitys Clubhouse from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The community is located on U.S. Highway 27, one mile west of I-75. Candy corn and other candy packages have taken over an entire aisle and customs fill up most of another aisle in the stores. Wispy appearances of ghosts, globins, and witches seem to be permeating the area. With Halloween this coming Monday, Pun Alley cant resist going there for some haunts and ghostly stories. Actually, Halloween is a distortion of its original name. A long ago butcher tradition was to give customers empty sausage skins at the end of October. This day was known as Hollow Weenie Day.Frankly FrankensteinDespite his evil reputation, Frankenstein actually had a good sense of humor; he kept his monster in stitches. When the monster rose from the table and spat on the ground, the proud doctor exclaimed, Its saliva! Its saliva! Doctor Frankensteins assistant, Igor, was also a doctor and together they were a pair o docs. When they decided to stop making monsters, Igor found a new job at an auto dealership as parts manager. Frankenstein has a new ghoul friend. Hed previously dated a lady scarecrow but went from rags to witches.Little hauntsPeople who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. During the day baby ghosts go to day scare centers. There arent any famous skeletons because theyre a bunch of no bodies. You dont have to be concerned about Daylight Saving Time at Halloween. The holiday is always on Green Witch Mean Time. You always find ghouls and demons together because demons are a ghouls best friend. Programmers get Christmas and Halloween mixed up because 25 DEC equals 31 OCT. Mummies hide by wearing masking tape. If you broke your Jack-olantern you can fix it with a pumpkin patch. Two ghosts were arguing. One wanted to do something difficult. The other ghost said, You dont stand a man of a chance! A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. A ghost was assigned to a new territory. After a few days he asked the boss ghost, Can I go back to my old haunts? If you see twin witches you wont be able to tell which witch is which. On Halloween, a little boy knocked on Johns door. The boy took a look at Johns wife in her mudpack and gave her his candy.Pointed adviceOh, doctor, cried a wild-eyed man, Im dreadfully afflicted. The ghosts of my departed relatives come and perch on the tops of the fence posts all around my garden when dusk is falling. I can look out any evening and see a couple of dozen spooks sitting on the fence, waiting, waiting, and waiting. What shall I do? Sharpen the tops of the posts, advised the doctor. Yummy mummy talesA number of movies featuring the mummy have drawn enormous audiences who watch the action in Horrorscope. The mummys mummy was also an entertainer a famous gauza stripper. Off the silver screen the mummy isnt very popular with the other monsters. They think hes egotistical because hes all wrapped up in himself. Being interested in band ages, he loves music, his favorite style being wrap. He would love to take a vacation at the Dead Sea, but hes afraid that hell relax and unwind too much. A sign in the Egyptian funeral home says, Satisfaction guaranteed or your mummy back.Spell timeAfter a lifetime of hunching over her bubbling cauldron muttering incantations and concocting various enchanted brews, the witch finally came to the realization that she was no longer in her prime. In addition to the pronounced dowagers hump she had developed, her arthritic feet were an almost constant source of pain and torment for her. One evening as she began the tedious task of mincing up a fresh batch of bat tongues and newt eyes, an idea suddenly dawned upon her. If she had a smaller, more portable cutting board, she might just as easily process these ingredients in her lap as she was comfortably seated beside her boiling cauldron. Ah, yes, She muttered to herself. It would be nice to be able to sit for a spell.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Although our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month (and does quite well, by the way), its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 1, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past eight years. This year, however, they will be assisted by Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. Weve collected 8,437 pounds of food (in our annual drives) since 2004, remarked Gloria. Our best year was in 2009, when the total was over 1,500 pounds. With all this talent working together, and with our help, this years food drive is bound to be another success. So over the next month, lets do our best to make this year even better and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes. All donations are gratefuly accepted. Patrol K-9 Benefit a huge successIt takes a community of dedicated individuals to hold an event that is not only fun but which benefits a good cause. Months of preparation went into planning the K-9 Benefit Luncheon held on Oct. 9 in the Lifestyle Center. From selling tickets, to procuring door prizes; making flyers and posters, to decorating and clean-up (not to mention all the paperwork), the Patrol K-9 Benefit Committee had it all covered. Chaired by Nancy Rife, the committee was composed of Ginger Abbott, Joan Buzzek, Mary Callahan, Ed DeMauex, Pat Mershimer, Charlie Mock, Lorraine Moran, Martha Nierenberg, Carol Pfeil, Joan Ritter, Donna Schmidt and Howard Shay. Musical entertainment was provided by our own Jackie Santone, Dotty Bouchet and Lina Vallejo; and the K-9 demonstration by Lt. Turner and Bolt was just amazing. The luncheon was catered by My Sons Catering, who generously contributed a portion of the ticket sales to the cause. At the end of it all, at the Oct. 11 Tuesday Morning Social, Patrol President Rich Toneske presented a check for $1,325 to Mary Callahan, president of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Foundation. After expressing her gratitude on behalf of the Foundation, Mary assured everyone that the donation will go into the Foundations restricted K-9 Unit fund. So, thank you volunteers for all your hard work; thank you to the businesses that donated goods and services for our door prizes; thank you to our residents for supporting the luncheon; and thank you especially to our Marion County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit for protecting us and our community.Annual fall sale open to the publicThe Marion Landing fall sale will be on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center. Previously known as the Bazaar, the Sale is open to the public and will feature items such as jewelry, books, linens, tools, baked goods, and various household items. Stop by and see what treasures, and bargains, you can discover.Murder, mystery and intriguePasta, Passion and Pistol, the audience-participation Dinner Theatre Production to be presented by the Sunshine Committee on Nov. 6, has sold out.

Competition has been fierce, with two teams having earned 19 to 21 points. Team OSIMA was leading with 21 points, with teams High Hopes and Lucky 7 only one point behind. The Better Bs and Four for Fun teams were only to points behind. Individual results have seen some great games, with Bill Hull scoring a game 75 pins over his average and Bill Shampine knocking down 96 pins over his average in his three-game series. For the women, Judy Shuster was 80 pins over her average in one game. Lacoste Riers has the highest mens average through the four week period and Linda McIntyre leads the women. One more bowler is still needed to complete the goal of 18 teams. Bowlers compete on Monday afternoons. Please call League Secretary George Difrancesco if you are interested in joining a group of bowlers who know how to have fun! Circle Square Commons MarketThe current hours for the market are 5 to 8 p.m. The hours for November through May 4, 2012 will be 4 to 7 p.m. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 BY HARRY CHAMBERS Special to the CitizenThe day came... and after much planning and preparation it could not have gone any better. Some of the Palm Cay Anglers left Friday, a day before the fishing event, and stayed the night in Daytona with friends and family. And then some of us got up early and met at 4 a.m. (yes I said 4 a.m.) on a Saturday morning at the Oasis and set the GPS for Ponce Inlet, Florida. In less than two hours we reached our destination and there she was, the Sea Spirit. Behind this beautiful fishing lady (our boat and crew) the water glistened and off to the left, a light house with the bright light showing the way to the open sea. We got on board, selected our positions on the boat and after about a 90minute ride, the captain said drop those lines and good luck. We fished... and we fished. I looked to my left and watched as Cal Goude fought and won a fight with a red fish that weighed in at over 20 pounds. The fish was out of season and had to be released. We watched (happy for the fish but sad for Cal) as the fish was returned to the sea. Mean time, little fishies were being caught by all and we were having a blast. This writer was extremely excited when a grouper weighing over 28 pounds took the bait, and one of the very helpful crew assisted in bringing that monster on board with a gaffe hook. The weather was beautiful and the trip rewarding. The Sea Spirit returned to her home port and the gracious captain and crew cleaned and packed our fish for us before we departed for home. The owner of the ship, Capt. Mike, took a moment to personally thank the Palm Cay anglers for fishing with his fleet family. If you missed the adventure, we plan to do it again in April before our winter residents leave for the summer. Check out the Palm Cay entertainment listings for more on this and many other exciting events planned for you, located at the bulletin board in the Oasis.

Donna Hawley says that her shop will give $1 from each customer to Toys for Tots, and her shop will also be the only drop-off point for toys in Steeplechase. Southern Style is between Bealls and Save-a-Lot. She and her staff showed off a poster which was brought in by Marine Corps League members George Robinson and Jim McCarthy last week. Toys for Tots has moved its headquarters to Jasmine last year the group was in Steeplechase. The South Marion Citizenoffice, 8810 S.W.

Get your hair done, support Toys for Tots Author Chappell to read at CF poetry seriesThe College of Central Florida will present the eighth annual Debra Vazquez Memorial Poetry Series in November with featured author Fred Chappell. The reading is on Thursday, Nov. 3, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ewers Century Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. There is no cost to attend and a book signing will follow. Chappell is the author of 30 volumes of poetry, fiction and literary criticism. His most recent works include Ancestors and Others: New and Selected Stories, 2009, and Shadow Box, 2009.

A founding member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers, Chappell retired after 40 years from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where his students included other celebrated writers such as Reynolds Price and Anne Tyler. Writing in the Los Angeles Times Book Review, Frank Levering stated: Not since James Agee and Robert Penn Warren has a Southern writer displayed such masterful versatility. Together with only a handful of his American contemporaries, Chappell reminds us of the almost forgotten phrase man of letters.

WOODBURY Special to the CitizenTis the season for yard sales! Joy Lutheran Evangelical Church, on State Road 200 in Ocala, had a huge one on Saturday, Oct. 22. What is a yard sale? It is also known as a garage sale, rummage sale, tag sale, attic sale, moving sale, or barn sale. It is an event for the sale of used items by private individuals, and no licenses are required nor taxes collected. Typically the items on sale are unwanted items from one household or multiple households. The items can be new, like-new or just usable, and offered for sale. The popular motivation for these sales is spring cleaning or maybe fall cleaning. Sometimes items are for sale because people are moving or just need some wellearned spending money. Typically the sale venue is a garage, driveway, front yard, porch or even the interior of a house. The staples of these sales can range from books, toys, household items to garden tools and sports equipment. The origin of the modern day yard sale is not really known. For centuries, people have simply laid out a few items on a table or a blanket and bartered for goods and services in exchange for other items of like value or whatever currency that was appropriate for their location. In the USA, the act of going to garage sales has spawned the use of a new verb known as garage saleing. Garage sales have taken on a special meaning to a community and have become events of special local significance. In these situations large areas of a community hold a communal garage sale involving dozens or hundreds of families at the same time. According to Patty Corey, Joy church member, and original organizer of this event since 2005, this is a Womens Evangelical Lutheran Church Association (W.E.L.C.A.) project. It first started as a crafts bazaar until it grew to its current yard sale event. Over the years the women have found the event to be profitable and have used the proceeds to support the building fund and renovate Swenson Fellowship Hall. They have purchased new carpeting, a dishwasher and chairs. They also support some charities with the proceeds. Supportive to the women are the many men who help to make this event successful, especially with the heavy lifting and with the tools and sports equipment. So last Saturday, the garage sale-ing people were lined up before 7 a.m. Often times the early birds are collectors, restorers or resellers who are searching for bargains or for rare and unusual items. Joys sale had many of the small items, household goods, handmade quilts, Christmas decorations and craft items all in the inside of the building. They had a tasty display of baked goods for sale in the kitchen area. Outside there was a coffee shack where you could have a cup or buy a pound of organically, shade grown, South American coffee. In the garage, outside, were many larger items, from cots, lawn furniture, golf clubs, garden tools and more. Some of the customers were looking for specific items, some were just looking. Walking into this large amasses of items, someone said, Oh! I dont know where to start. Many of the folks had been coming to this sale each year where others had read the article in the newspaper or saw the sign on the highway. People came mostly from around Ocala but there were a few from farther away such as Lake City and the country of Norway. And, it wasnt just women who come to yard sales, there were many men represented. One man said, I usually sit in the car while my wife shops, but one day I came in and I got hooked. The cyber age has literally changed the way the world shops. You often hear people say they purchase everything they need or want right online. It would be sad to see fewer yard sales in lieu of shopping online. The mood of this event was friendly, cheerful and bustling with conversation a really nice social experience. Joy Lutheran holds huge yard sale Eight year old Edward and 3 year old Elena found the toys they wanted at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Linda Aker, one of the helpers, showed the Christmas decorations for sale. Solvor Rorkjar, from Norway, found just the hat she wanted. Photos by Norman Halvorsen The yard sale included a coffee shack and Walt Padgett offered a cup of coffee or a pound of coffee to purchase. Gaye Fulsom and June Campbell, from Ocala, were pleased to find a cot that they needed at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Outdoors at the Joy Lutheran Yard Sale there were many tools and sporting equipment available. 0009GVQ Hawthorne Village of Ocala Fri., Oct. 28th 6pm-8pm Pictures in the Pumpkin Patch Haunted Hallway Hawthorne Health and Rehab Center 4100 SW 33rd Ave., Ocala, FL 352-237-7776 Music Entertainment Safe Trick or Treating Fall Plant Sale 1-8pm 0009LV9 Associated Plumbing and Pipe Residential and Commercial 352-804-9165 EPA Lead Certification #NAT-113266-1 OSHA 10 #1216933 Fla.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com person causing me to freeze in petrifying fear. My first thought, I had someone elses trousers on. But whose? More important, where was the man wearing my trousers? I smiled one of those smiles that says, Oops, Im in trouble but I dont want anyone to know. My friend sensed something was wrong; friends are like that. Looking at me he said, Is anything wrong? Being the truthful person I am, I said, Wrong? What could be wrong? Weve just enjoyed a great time together. No, nothings wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong. One problem with friends is they always know when you are lying. My friend was no different. He just looked at me and said, OK, whats wrong? I may have trouble catching up but I have no trouble whatsoever being caught with my pants down. Well, maybe not quite down but certainly empty. Nothing is sadder than a man wearing empty trousers. Did you forget your wallet? my friend asked with delight dancing in his eyes. He happily paid the tab but I will never live it down. The second incident also had to do with my wallet. Although this time, I did not forget my wallet. I had an early morning meeting across town. I knew my car was running on fumes but no need to worry. I left the house early enough to stop and gas up. Pulling out of my driveway, I noticed the gas gauge was lower than I remembered it being the night before. A tinge of terror gripped my mind and I earnestly prayed I would get to the gas station on time. I sighed with relief as I approached a gas station. The station had just opened and the sign on the pump informed me I needed to pay for the gas before pumping it. No problem. I ambled in, presented my credit card and purchased $20 worth of gas. There is a good feeling associated with a schedule well in hand. I glanced at my watch and noticed I was two minutes ahead of schedule. With a whistle on my lips and air between my ears, I got into my car and drove away. Two miles later, I glance at the gas gauge and noticed it had not moved. I tapped the gauge and nothing happened. At that time, the car sputtered and coughed ominously. Then, like a bolt of lightening, it struck me. I had paid for the gas and drove away without pumping it into my car. By this time, the car engine stopped and I had just enough momentum to pull to the side of the road. I sat there a few minutes pondering my dilemma. I knew what I had to do but I did not want to do it. Slowly, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the dreaded number. The phone rang and in a moment, I heard myself speaking into the phone, Honey, can you Waiting for my wife to bring a can of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17 KJV). Good intentions must be accompanied with appropriate action.The Rev. James L.

An attempt at a routine traffic stop turned into a 110 mph chase on Oct. 24 and resulted in multiple charges against the alleged driver. Eric Danzell Humbert Jr. of 107th Place, Dunnellon, faces charges of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, felony fleeing and eluding, resisting without violence and no valid drivers license. According to the report, a deputy on patrol on West State Road 40 spotted a car straddling the yellow line. When he got behind the car it switched lanes and the deputy turned on his emergency lights. Instead of stopping, the driver sped up. At the intersection of State 40 and U.S. 41, the suspect vehicle ran over some stop sticks that had been placed by another deputy. Both left tires went flat, but he kept going on U.S. 41, got to the Chatmire area and fled on foot. A K-9 unit helped track him, and Humbert was arrested an charged. Marijuana was found in the vehicle. According to jail records, the 20-year-old Humbert Jr. had been arrested earlier this month on similar fleeing and no drivers license charges. He also had the same charges in November 2009. He also faced cocaine charges in March of 2009. A Northeast Ocala man was accused of retail grand theft after an incident at Bealls. David Allan Parsley, 47, of Northeast 13th Avenue, was accused of taking 18 belts, tying them around himself under his shirt and trying to leave with them. He was spotted by a loss prevention officer and detained until a deputy arrived. The belts had a total value of $464.Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com tions that want part of the pie. There are developers who make over $9 million dollars a year from amenities fees and dont expend but a minimal part of that amount on so called services like so called security, with gates manned by senior citizens, lawn watering from retention ponds and lawn mowing at a cost of about $8 per lawn. Of course Part B of Medicare will increase as always. But, thats minimal. Its the amenities fees that will take a large chunk. I know mine have increased 34 percent from the original amount we paid when we moved here. Most of amenities fees are scams as services that are being charged are for non-existent services. Maybe Obama isnt too far wrong to tax those with high incomes and lower taxes on lower income families. Think about that. Theres an old song that goes in part, The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Bill Ford OcalaFEMA fundingYour columnist on Oct. 7 accused the Democrats of Unlimited spending and vote gathering. They Democrats are simply requesting additional funding for FEMA so that Americans can get help when disaster strikes. We are spending $6.7 billion a month in Afghanstan and Republicans dont want to help our own people to recover from a disaster, how cruel? He then has the gall to praise the Republicans for their unwavering commitment to frugality Where has this columnist been for the last three Republican Presidents? Reagan ran the debt up 20.6 percent in two terms, Bush 1 increased the debt by 13 percent. Democrat, Clinton, reduced the National Debt by 9.7 percent and handed over a $256 billion surplus to Bush 2, who squandered the surplus and ended up with an increase in the National Debt of 27 percent. They all must have forgotten about the Republican commitment to frugality. We now have a Democrat in the White House and the Republicans have suddenly been converted to fiscal conservatives. John Toner Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Check out our websitewww.smcitizen.com Is it just me, or do others have trouble catching up? Just when it looks like I am almost caught up with some project or my todo-list, something happens setting me back a few paces. One step forward, as they say and for me 17 steps backward. Or, so it seems. I dont have any problem whatsoever catching a cold. I once even caught a fly in my mouth while preaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch the dickens from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Catching up is another matter all together. Two things happened last week that brought this to my attention. First, I took someone out to lunch. That in itself is not outstanding. My wife tells me I am out to lunch all the time. Have you ever tried to impress someone by taking them out to lunch and insist on paying for lunch? That is exactly what I did this past week. Why I ever try to impress anyone is beyond my wifes wildest imagination, but I try, much to her chagrin. With a couple of hours to spare, my friend called me. Immediately I set into action a plan to meet him at the restaurant for lunch on me. We had a grand time catching up on each others life. Personally, I was thrilled to Catch Up on something. Unfortunately, I thought I was on a roll with ham and cheese. It was delicious to enjoy this brief time if only for a moment, but all good things do end. Things were about to turn ugly. No, someone did not bring me a mirror. Instead, the affable waitress brought me the check. Normally, this would not be a problem. I would accept the check after some friendly banter with the waitress complaining about the amount and threatening not to tip her and she threatening to tell my wife. We all smiled and then it happened. I casually reached around to my back pocket to extract my wallet containing my credit card with which I would pay the check. My back pocket was as empty as a politicians promises. At first, a slight streak of panic raced through my The elusive art of catching up OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

These self proclaimed champions of the down trodden, are ready to pounce at a moments notice, but are their motives pure? Their tactics legal, or moral? Why are they entitled to the lifestyles, and compensation, of any Robber Baron, off the backs of these unfortunates? They extort money from the down trodden, while holding themselves out as their champions. What a crock. The union leaders are in it for the power, money, and status it gives to them. Bullying can be fun, and profitable. It is our money that pays for all of the extortion that occurs. It is always our money that pays for everything. Costs go up. We pay. Look how they strong arm anyone who asks for a secret ballot when union votes are taken. If that is not bullying, I do not know what is. Recently a woman testified to Congress that her group was denied by the court, a secret ballot on a choice to join or reject the union. What kind of garbage is that? Is this America anymore? I do not recognize it. The college duffers at OWS are living proof of the value of a college education, today. Free tuition, free tuition is their mantra. Forgive my debt; I took the money, now I do not want to pay it back. Any time anyone yells free any more my ears perk up; it means I am going to have to be paying once more for someone elses largesse. I cannot afford any more free stuff. I am at a point where I am about to need free stuff myself. Who will pay for my free stuff? Any volunteers? The leaders will still live like princes, if not kings, I will live as I did during the Depression. Our resources are finite, not infinite. When will we learn? D.I. Larson OcalaCorporations and unionsMany people criticize corporations and their executives on the poor leadership of their companies failure to make good business decisions while competing with other companies. Others blame the unions and their organizations leaders for the failure of companies to make a profit. One hundred percent of all companies have executives who are in charge of the business and responsible for production and profits for their own companies. Compare that with 15 percent of the workforce who are unionized and working for these companies. You be the judge on who is responsible for the bottom line profits of these companies. If businesses are failing, its because of the poor job of the 100 percent who are executives and not the 15 percent who are unionized workers who are doing their jobs as instructed. For the few of you who understand math, you realize its the bad decisions from the top 100 percent that is killing our businesses and not the workers who are getting the blame. Jerry Segovis OcalaExplaining deductiblesLast week one of the letters asked: Why The Deductibles? I believe that was a serious question and may be one which many of us have due to not fully understanding how the insurance companies set premiums. Simply, if there were no deductibles, the cost of the insurance would increase dramatically due to the huge difference in the cost of handling many more claims. This cost would be passed down to us, the insured, not absorbed by the insurance company. If I am willing to absorb more of the upfront small claim costs through a larger deductible, I will benefit by having a lower premium. The companies do not benefit by your having higher or lower deductibles because they will set premiums to cover their expenses of administration and claims experience. As an example, check with your insurance company into how much effect the different deductibles can have on the premium charged if you are willing and able to handle a larger deductible. This applies to home, auto and health insurance. In light of the above, I trust you can understand why there is no need for a deductible in life insurance. The only claim expense incurred by the insurance company is at your death, which obviously only happens once. The other coverages are subject to dozens of claims throughout the lifetime of the policy depending on many factors such as driving habits, your health and even acts of GOD. The premium charged normally reflects your individual circumstances. Insurance does spread the risk among many that we as individuals cannot comfortably bear alone. I was in the Life Insurance business for over 40 years and am still amazed at the miracle of Life Insurance. The financial makeup of the company to insure all claims are paid, regardless of time of death, is an actuarial wonder. I am now retired, but if you still have questions, feel free to call me, Im in the phone book.

Time for tax reformOur IRS tax system is broken and must be replaced! Its full of loopholes and contradictions, and is so complicated its nearly impossible to interpret and administer. The size of the tax code is 70,000+ pages and still growing. Mindboggling! Just to comply with the requirements of the IRS code (filling out tax forms, hiring tax-preparers, etc.), the 2012 compliance costs will be $363 billion. The IRS budget for 2012 is $13 billion. When these costs are factored in, for every $1 expended because of IRS requirements, the IRS collects just $6 in tax revenues. Not a very impressive bang for our buck! This $6 is revenue that will be used to bolster our sagging economy. But, we cant do too much bolstering with only $6. By comparison, fair tax administrative costs will be about $19 billion. For each $1 expended on fair tax, America realizes $136 in tax revenues 22 times the IRSs meager $6. Brief descriptions of the two most talked about types of tax replacement follow: 1. Flat tax: a single-rate tax on income. The concept is an adequate one considering the unfair, multiple-rates we currently have. However, it requires a portion of our existing tax structure which is in disrepair to administer it. And, Congress can pass exceptions to the singlerate until it eventually begins to look like the tax code we now have. Also, a flat tax will not capture the legal and illegal activities of the underground economy. These activities are an estimated $1.3 trillion annually in untaxed earnings. 2. Fair tax: a national consumption or sales tax on the purchase of new goods. It is not income driven. Everybody keeps 100 percent of everything they earn; people always know exactly how much money they have and how much they can spend. The poor are treated more fairly than they are under our current tax system. People are taxed at 23 percent but only on the new things they purchase. The more an entity earns the more things it will buy and the more revenue America will have. The only negative to a fair tax, is that it hasnt yet been implemented. One GOP presidential hopeful proposes a 999 Plan which combines the above two: a 9 percent corporate and 9 percent personal flat tax combined with a 9 percent fair tax. It is better than what we have now, however, considering the above, a standalone fair tax plan is much more logical. If you are truly concerned about Americas future, you must eagerly support the implementation of a tax replacement. Politicians may tell you they support tax reform, but unless they actively push for it, they probably dont. If they dont actively support tax reform, tell them you wont vote for them in 2012. Please begin your tax replacement research at FairTax.org. Its the right thing to do and this is the time to do it.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 28, 2011 This is Halloween weekend, the time for Trick or Treating all across the land. Children of all ages, sizes and shapes will dress up and look for goodies. The problem is that the caution that children are taught the other 364 days of the year usually goes out the window, as they approach strangers houses and unfamiliar neighborhoods looking for rewards. In this day and age, thats not a good idea. Our paper has been filled with schedules of various Halloween events that are being held this weekend. Parents should take their children to the various gatherings conducted by responsible people and let their children enjoy the festivities with others in a safe atmosphere. In our area, there are various churches that do things to entertain the youngsters. One of the biggest gatherings in western Ocala is at the Sheriffs substation on State Road 200, where a host of activities are planned on Monday from 5 to 9 p.m., all under the supervision of sheriffs personnel. However, be aware that these volunteers from law enforcement are not babysitters. Parents should take the responsibility of being with their children throughout the event (and weve seen some parents in the past who have some pretty good costumes). If youre a parent or guardian, and you children have gone out into a neighborhood for the evening, stress upon them that they should not eat anything until youve had a chance to check it first. When your children get home, look over all the food they received. Its a little sad that we have to warn people about things like this, but thats how the world we live in has evolved. Even innocent children arent immune from those who would try to hurt us in some way. Parents, grandparents and guardians have to be vigilant, and this is the time of the year when we all have to be more careful about our little ones. So enjoy the holiday, in moderation, and take care of our children. And thanks go out to all the volunteers at all the churches and organizations who try to make things just a little safer for all of us.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

It was hardly more than a footnote on last weeks County Commission agenda, but the county accepted a letter from the city of Ocala pulling out of the negotiated agreement to combine emergency dispatch services. The county had little choice. Thats too bad. Its too bad because the people in the city will be the ones who suffer. Since they pay county taxes, its their taxes that help fund Marion County Fire Rescue, but they also have to pay taxes to support Ocala Fire Rescue. Combining the dispatch services would not only have made the operation more efficient, it would have saved the taxpayers of the city about half a million dollars. One of the comments at a recent City Council meeting concerned the fact that a county crew was dispatched to a city fire recently, as was a city crew. Problem was, the county crew got there first. Shouldnt that be an argument, not only for combining dispatch services to get a response the fastest possible way, but even possibly for merging the two departments into one unit. When you sit back and think of it, theres a definite disadvantage to having two separate fire rescue units operating in the same area, with calls determined by a city-county dividing line that in many cases is so imaginary and convoluted that people dont know where it is. Someone could be dying while someone is trying to figure out which agency should answer the call. This is not a knock on the individuals who serve as firefighters and medical personnel on these emergency runs. When they get there, theyre going to take care of you no matter where you are located. Its getting them there through a duplicative dispatch system that is the problem. The city of Ocala has successfully protected its own little corner of the world but at the expense of its citizens safety and pocketbooks. The last time we looked, Ocala was a part of Marion County. Maybe its City Council ought to start acting that way.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Protecting turf, at our expense Please keep it safe this Halloween Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY RICH LOWRY Special to the CitizenFar from the street theater and lefty ravings of the Occupy Wall Street protest, ordinary people are posting dispatches about their economic struggles at the "We Are the 99 Percent" Web page. If you put aside the political rants, the stories are a stark pointillist portrayal of the grinding misery of the Great Recession. And Bank of America has very little to do with it. The recession has added a layer of joblessness on top of punishingly dysfunctional and expensive health-care and higher-education systems. Despite themselves, the people posting at the 99 Percent page aren't really making an implicit case for burning down the financial system, but for blowing up how we handle health care and higher education. College students and recent graduates are overrepresented. Their complaint comes down to too much debt, and too few job opportunities to get out from under it. There's the guy with the master's from Harvard who owes $60,000 and lives off temp jobs. There's the woman who is paying her $50,000 debt and the $20,000 debt for her 22-year-old daughter. And on and on. The representatives of these debt-burdened graduates shouldn't be at Zuccotti Park, but at the American Association of University Professors or some other arm of the academic complex that gouges students. College tuition has been increasing at a rapid clip. Does anyone believe that higher ed is getting constantly better? It's an inflationary spiral, partly driven by a federal student-loan program that feeds the maw of the beast regardless of quality or outcomes. Another running theme is the high cost of health care and the lack of insurance. One man writes of his job "that pays 15 percent less than it did five years ago" even as "health insurance costs are up over 175 percent." Expressing a characteristic plaint in an era of stagnating income, he says "Everything costs more, yet I make less!" Many of those posting their stories are members of the working class or struggling middle class. There is an undercurrent of family breakdown -the woman whose husband left her after 30 years, the hard-pressed single moms. There are tales of men losing decent-paying jobs and finding nothing comparable. The puerile ideology of Occupy Wall Street is irrelevant to all of this. Goldman Sachs could be dissolved tomorrow and the wealth of the 1 percent confiscated, and it wouldn't make college or health care cheaper, or create one new job. If the "revolution" yearned for by the protesters is insipid, there's no doubt that the moment calls for bold economic reforms and a rethinking of health care and higher education. President Barack Obama's misbegotten contribution is a health-care law that won't control costs and will insure more people only while making the current system more unsustainable. Republicans often don't even bother to try to connect their program to the troubles of workers down the income scale. The leading establishment Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, wants to cut their capital-gains taxes. The leading tea party presidential candidate, Herman Cain, wants to raise their taxes. If nothing else, "We Are the 99 Percent" is a reminder that the suffering is real.

Some of the fashions will be modeled by members of the club. Venie Halgrim, co-chair of the committee, has selected many delicious and flavorful teas and various finger sandwiches and sweets. She noted, The price of the ticket remains the same, $12 each. It is a great value for the money and the tickets go fast.

Now in Childs 16th novel, the author gives us a prequel showing us Reacher as an army major and setting up the circumstances that led to his leaving the service. In an early scene of The Affair Reacher says, The clock in my head woke me at five, two hours before dawn on Friday, March 7, 1997. The first day of the rest of my life. His orders: go undercover to a rural Mississippi town near Fort Kelham, keep your distance and monitor the investigation of a young murdered woman. There is constant pressure from the Pentagon to catch her killer but only if hes a civilian. The local sheriff is beautiful Elizabeth Deveraux who immediately blows Jacks cover because she was once a Marine MP and knows a thing or two. Gradually, they work together under difficult conditions. They cant get near the base because a shadow force has formed a quarantine zone around it. The base is unusual in at least one respect: Fort Kelham was still operating as a legitimate Ranger training school in addition to being used to house two full companies of grown up Rangers, both hand picked from the 75th Ranger Regiment, designated Alpha Company and Bravo Company, who deployed covertly to Kosovo on a rotating basis, a month at a time. The remote location of northeastern Mississippi was a perfect cover for the secret operation. Shortly after arriving in tiny Carter Crossing, Reacher learns that other young women have been murdered prior to the most recent case in similar fashion. Thus, the narrative tension generated is whether Jack Reacher is going to protect the Armys interests or act on the truth wherever that leads him. While working the case, Deveraux and Reacher slowly fall in love over countless cheeseburgers and peach pie servings in the towns only diner. The story unfolds in formulaic thriller style with a surprise ending each chapter to keep the reader engaged. This novel which fills in the gaps in Reachers background should interest his many fans. In the meanwhile, many of those fans are outraged at the casting of Child ninth novel for the movie One Shot. Burly, 6-foot-5 Reacher will be played by diminutive Tom Cruise.

Starting this month, utility customers who replace old toilets with new, water-efficient models could be eligible for toilet rebates. Qualifying customers who replace one toilet could receive up to $100 in rebates; those who replace a second toilet will be eligible for up to another $80 in reimbursements. The rebates will be issued as water bill credits. To qualify, an individual must: Be a Marion County Utilities water customer in good standing. Live in a home built prior to 1995. Plan to replace a toilet of 3.5 or more gallons. Call to verify eligibility and reserve the rebate at 1-800-964-2140. Customers are encouraged to reserve their rebate as soon as possible since only 1,400 rebates are available this year. Toilets installed prior to 1995 typically use 3.5 or more gallons of water with each flush. New models use only between 1.2 1.6 gallons per flush. Replacing just one high-flow toilet with an ultra low-flow toilet could save more than 1,000 gallons of water per month. Marion County Utilities funds the Toilet Rebate Program in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Withlacoochee River Basin Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District.

The consumer-friendly savings options and comprehensive prepaid plans give Florida families an opportunity to safely secure funding for their childs college education. The objective of each of the prepaid plans is to allow families on any budget to begin planning for their child orgrandchilds future with peace of mind.

Since 1988, families have purchased more than 1.4 million Florida Prepaid College Plans, making it the largest and most successful prepaid plan in the nation. Nearly one in 10 Florida children has a Florida Prepaid College Plan. When your child is ready for college, this years Florida Prepaid College Plan will cover the cost of tuition and most required fees at Floridas 11 state universities and 28 Florida Colleges(formerly community colleges) and can also include dormitory housing. If the student decides to attend an out-of-state college, technical school or a private college in Florida, the value of the plan may be transferred to any eligible educational institution.

She was born in 1908 in Dayton, and one of her earliest memories was what is called the Great Flood of Dayton in March, 1913. She didnt elaborate, but a lookup on the Internet found that parts of Dayton were under 20 feet of water from the Miami River, and this led to one of the nations first flood control projects. She had two sisters, and two brothers, and went to Holy Name School in Dayton. I helped my mother by working in a factory. She moved to Florida, in the Astor area along State Road 40 east of Ocala, because her husband loved to go fishing. This was her second husband. After her first spouse died, she met up with a boy she knew in the first grade, ironically, at a wake, and thats the man who brought her to Florida. After her first wedding she had two children, but the Great Depression was just around the corner. We had it rough. We had bought a home and a car, but we couldnt pay for both, so we had to sell the car to pay for the house. She said her husband would bring home $18 a week. We walked everywhere. Last week her daughter from Ohio called and said she had heard from Prudential, that they still had her on the books, and that she was due some money. She wasnt sure how much. Like many others past retirement age, she is also aware of scams, and a recent call that asked for her age and name to do with Social Security set off warning bells. Her daughter did the follow-up to make sure she wasnt being gypped. After Colleen finished putting Margarets hair up, she went to sit under a dryer, where the staff surprised her with a cake and a song, and later in the day would head back to Cherrywood, her home since 1997.

He would talk, but I wouldnt stop. I thought he was flirting with me. After a short pause, Margaret said, Maybe he was. That man in Dayton was Orville Wright, whose work in places such as that lab helped lead us to where we are in air travel today. Margaret turns 103 years old this weekend. As she has done every Thursday since the shop opened, she was in Shear Joy salon on Southwest 103rd Street Road last week to get her hair done. Owner Colleen Peluso and her staff celebrated with a birthday cake for the very sharp and alert Margaret. She lives with her daughter, Shirley Skaggs, in Cherrywood. She has another daughter, Marguerite Turner in Ohio. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKMargaret Kender, 103, gets her hair done by Colleen Peluso at Shear Joy.

Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years.

Marion County Center for the Arts Omega Theatre Company will present the play Wait until Dark, Nov. 4-6 at the West Port High School Performing Arts Center, 3733 S.W. 80th Ave. in Ocala. Performances are Friday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and senior citizens. Parental discretion is strongly advised. This play contains violent content. The theatre will be completely dark for several minutes during the performance. For reservations, call -352-438-8368. Wait until Dark, written by Fredrick Knott, is a suspenseful thriller which was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967. The cast and crew of Wait until Dark consist of more than 30 students in the Marion County Center for the Arts acting and technical theatre program. The production is directed by Christopher Vaida who also served as technical director for the production. Production stage manager is Reem Okab, set design is by Ignacio Scannone, lighting design is by Justin Gonzalez, sound design is by Wilson Vinas, and costume design is by Zoe Miller and Corinne Proetto. Playing the role of Suzy is Jessica Hirsch, a senior in the acting and musical theatre programs. After first reading Wait until Dark, I really thought that this was a play unlike anything I have ever seen. Its a top notch thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. There are plenty of movies like that, but not many stage plays. So, its refreshing to be energized in that whats going to happen next kind of way, Hirsch states. Other cast members include Keaton Long, Peter Buffie, Krista Alvarado, Alex Hernandez, Brendien Mitchell, Thomas Brugger, and Michael Arvay. The Marion County Center for the Arts (MCCA) is a magnet program for gifted and talented high school students in the performing and visual arts. Students can elect a major course of study in visual art, dance, music, and theatre, while taking core academic, honors, advanced placement, and dual enrollment classes.

She was born in 1908 in Dayton, and one of her earliest memories was what is called the Great Flood of Dayton in March, 1913. She didnt elaborate, but a lookup on the Internet found that parts of Dayton were under 20 feet of water from the Miami River, and this led to one of the nations first flood control projects. She had two sisters, and two brothers, and went to Holy Name School in Dayton. I helped my mother by working in a factory. She moved to Florida, in the Astor area along State Road 40 east of Ocala, because her husband loved to go fishing. This was her second husband. After her first spouse died, she met up with a boy she knew in the first grade, ironically, at a wake, and thats the man who brought her to Florida. After her first wedding she had two children, but the Great Depression was just around the corner. We had it rough. We had bought a home and a car, but we couldnt pay for both, so we had to sell the car to pay for the house. She said her husband would bring home $18 a week. We walked everywhere. Last week her daughter from Ohio called and said she had heard from Prudential, that they still had her on the books, and that she was due some money. She wasnt sure how much. Like many others past retirement age, she is also aware of scams, and a recent call that asked for her age and name to do with Social Security set off warning bells. Her daughter did the follow-up to make sure she wasnt being gypped. After Colleen finished putting Margarets hair up, she went to sit under a dryer, where the staff surprised her with a cake and a song, and later in the day would head back to Cherrywood, her home since 1997.

Horvath, 79, of Ocala, died at his residence on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011. Ed was born in Passaic, N.J. on Nov. 7, 1931. He was a U.S. Navy Veteran and served during the Korean War. Ed was a master plumber and retired from Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, N.J. as the plumbing construction foreman. He moved to Florida 17 years ago and then to OTOW Indigo East 5 years ago. Ed was much loved and will be greatly missed by those who survive him, including his wife, Gloria; sons, Edward Horvath Jr., William Horvath, and Kenneth Horvath; 14 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. The family will have a memorial service to celebrate Eds life at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of Roberts Funeral Homes Bruce Chapel West, 6241 SW SR 200, Ocala, FL 352-8542266.

Starting this month, utility customers who replace old toilets with new, water-efficient models could be eligible for toilet rebates. Qualifying customers who replace one toilet could receive up to $100 in rebates; those who replace a second toilet will be eligible for up to another $80 in reimbursements. The rebates will be issued as water bill credits. To qualify, an individual must: Be a Marion County Utilities water customer in good standing. Live in a home built prior to 1995. Plan to replace a toilet of 3.5 or more gallons. Call to verify eligibility and reserve the rebate at 1-800-964-2140. Customers are encouraged to reserve their rebate as soon as possible since only 1,400 rebates are available this year. Toilets installed prior to 1995 typically use 3.5 or more gallons of water with each flush. New models use only between 1.2 1.6 gallons per flush. Replacing just one high-flow toilet with an ultra low-flow toilet could save more than 1,000 gallons of water per month. Marion County Utilities funds the Toilet Rebate Program in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Withlacoochee River Basin Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. County utility offers toilet rebate Do you own or manage a horse farm as a business, large or small? Would you like to know where your hobby farm will fit in with legislation in the near future?

Now in Childs 16th novel, the author gives us a prequel showing us Reacher as an army major and setting up the circumstances that led to his leaving the service. In an early scene of The Affair Reacher says, The clock in my head woke me at five, two hours before dawn on Friday, March 7, 1997. The first day of the rest of my life. His orders: go undercover to a rural Mississippi town near Fort Kelham, keep your distance and monitor the investigation of a young murdered woman. There is constant pressure from the Pentagon to catch her killer but only if hes a civilian. The local sheriff is beautiful Elizabeth Deveraux who immediately blows Jacks cover because she was once a Marine MP and knows a thing or two. Gradually, they work together under difficult conditions. They cant get near the base because a shadow force has formed a quarantine zone around it. The base is unusual in at least one respect: Fort Kelham was still operating as a legitimate Ranger training school in addition to being used to house two full companies of grown up Rangers, both hand picked from the 75th Ranger Regiment, designated Alpha Company and Bravo Company, who deployed covertly to Kosovo on a rotating basis, a month at a time. The remote location of northeastern Mississippi was a perfect cover for the secret operation. Shortly after arriving in tiny Carter Crossing, Reacher learns that other young women have been murdered prior to the most recent case in similar fashion. Thus, the narrative tension generated is whether Jack Reacher is going to protect the Armys interests or act on the truth wherever that leads him. While working the case, Deveraux and Reacher slowly fall in love over countless cheeseburgers and peach pie servings in the towns only diner. The story unfolds in formulaic thriller style with a surprise ending each chapter to keep the reader engaged. This novel which fills in the gaps in Reachers background should interest his many fans. In the meanwhile, many of those fans are outraged at the casting of Child ninth novel for the movie One Shot. Burly, 6-foot-5 Reacher will be played by diminutive Tom Cruise.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 28, 2011 T his is Halloween weekend, the time for Trick or Treating all across the land. Children of all ages, sizes and shapes will dress up and look for goodies. The problem is that the caution that children are taught the other 364 days of the year usually goes out the window, as they approach strangers houses and unfamiliar neighborhoods looking for rewards. In this day and age, thats not a good idea. Our paper has been filled with schedules of various Halloween events that are being held this weekend. Parents should take their children to the various gatherings conducted by responsible people and let their children enjoy the festivities with others in a safe atmosphere. In our area, there are various churches that do things to entertain the youngsters. One of the biggest gatherings in western Ocala is at the Sheriffs substation on State Road 200, where a host of activities are planned on Monday from 5 to 9 p.m., all under the supervision of sheriffs personnel. However, be aware that these volunteers from law enforcement are not babysitters. Parents should take the responsibility of being with their children throughout the event (and weve seen some parents in the past who have some pretty good costumes). If youre a parent or guardian, and you children have gone out into a neighborhood for the evening, stress upon them that they should not eat anything until youve had a chance to check it first. When your children get home, look over all the food they received. Its a little sad that we have to warn people about things like this, but thats how the world we live in has evolved. Even innocent children arent immune from those who would try to hurt us in some way. Parents, grandparents and guardians have to be vigilant, and this is the time of the year when we all have to be more careful about our little ones. So enjoy the holiday, in moderation, and take care of our children. And thanks go out to all the volunteers at all the churches and organizations who try to make things just a little safer for all of us. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

I t was hardly more than a footnote on last weeks County Commission agenda, but the county accepted a letter from the city of Ocala pulling out of the negotiated agreement to combine emergency dispatch services. The county had little choice. Thats too bad. Its too bad because the people in the city will be the ones who suffer. Since they pay county taxes, its their taxes that help fund Marion County Fire Rescue, but they also have to pay taxes to support Ocala Fire Rescue. Combining the dispatch services would not only have made the operation more efficient, it would have saved the taxpayers of the city about half a million dollars. One of the comments at a recent City Council meeting concerned the fact that a county crew was dispatched to a city fire recently, as was a city crew. Problem was, the county crew got there first. Shouldnt that be an argument, not only for combining dispatch services to get a response the fastest possible way, but even possibly for merging the two departments into one unit. When you sit back and think of it, theres a definite disadvantage to having two separate fire rescue units operating in the same area, with calls determined by a city-county dividing line that in many cases is so imaginary and convoluted that people dont know where it is. Someone could be dying while someone is trying to figure out which agency should answer the call. This is not a knock on the individuals who serve as firefighters and medical personnel on these emergency runs. When they get there, theyre going to take care of you no matter where you are located. Its getting them there through a duplicative dispatch system that is the problem. The city of Ocala has successfully protected its own little corner of the world but at the expense of its citizens safety and pocketbooks. The last time we looked, Ocala was a part of Marion County. Maybe its City Council ought to start acting that way.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Protecting turf, at our expense Please keep it safe this Halloween Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY RICH LOWRY Special to the Citizen F ar from the street theater and lefty ravings of the Occupy Wall Street protest, ordinary people are posting dispatches about their economic struggles at the "We Are the 99 Percent" Web page. If you put aside the political rants, the stories are a stark pointillist portrayal of the grinding misery of the Great Recession. And Bank of America has very little to do with it. The recession has added a layer of joblessness on top of punishingly dysfunctional and expensive health-care and higher-education systems. Despite themselves, the people posting at the 99 Percent page aren't really making an implicit case for burning down the financial system, but for blowing up how we handle health care and higher education. College students and recent graduates are overrepresented. Their complaint comes down to too much debt, and too few job opportunities to get out from under it. There's the guy with the master's from Harvard who owes $60,000 and lives off temp jobs. There's the woman who is paying her $50,000 debt and the $20,000 debt for her 22-year-old daughter. And on and on. The representatives of these debt-burdened graduates shouldn't be at Zuccotti Park, but at the American Association of University Professors or some other arm of the academic complex that gouges students. College tuition has been increasing at a rapid clip. Does anyone believe that higher ed is getting constantly better? It's an inflationary spiral, partly driven by a federal student-loan program that feeds the maw of the beast regardless of quality or outcomes. Another running theme is the high cost of health care and the lack of insurance. One man writes of his job "that pays 15 percent less than it did five years ago" even as "health insurance costs are up over 175 percent." Expressing a characteristic plaint in an era of stagnating income, he says "Everything costs more, yet I make less!" Many of those posting their stories are members of the working class or struggling middle class. There is an undercurrent of family breakdown -the woman whose husband left her after 30 years, the hard-pressed single moms. There are tales of men losing decent-paying jobs and finding nothing comparable. The puerile ideology of Occupy Wall Street is irrelevant to all of this. Goldman Sachs could be dissolved tomorrow and the wealth of the 1 percent confiscated, and it wouldn't make college or health care cheaper, or create one new job. If the "revolution" yearned for by the protesters is insipid, there's no doubt that the moment calls for bold economic reforms and a rethinking of health care and higher education. President Barack Obama's misbegotten contribution is a health-care law that won't control costs and will insure more people only while making the current system more unsustainable. Republicans often don't even bother to try to connect their program to the troubles of workers down the income scale. The leading establishment Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, wants to cut their capital-gains taxes. The leading tea party presidential candidate, Herman Cain, wants to raise their taxes. If nothing else, "We Are the 99 Percent" is a reminder that the suffering is real. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2011 by King Features Synd., Inc. Pay attention to the 99 percent GUEST COLUMN Reminder: South Marion Citizen office closed Friday, Oct. 28 for move to Suite 103 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The pitter-patter of all those Sheep feet means that youre out and about, rushing to get more done. Thats fine, but slow down by the weekend so you can heed some important advice. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre in charge of your own destiny these days, and, no doubt, youll have that Bulls-eye of yours right on target. But dont forget to make time for family events. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be prepared for a power struggle that you dont want. Look to the helpful folks around you for advice on how to avoid it without losing the important gains youve made. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations! Youre about to claim your hardearned reward for your patience and persistence. Now, go out and enjoy some fun and games with friends and family. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Big Cat might find it difficult to shake off that listless feeling. But be patient. By weeks end, your spirits will perk up and youll be your perfectly purring self again. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A problem with a coworker could prove to be a blessing in disguise when a superior steps in to investigate and discovers a situation that could prove helpful to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a favorable time to move ahead with your plans. Some setbacks are expected, but theyre only temporary. Pick up the pace again and stay with it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your creativity is recognized and rewarded. So go ahead and claim that youve earned. Meanwhile, that irksome and mysterious situation soon will be resolved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new associate brings ideas that the wise Sagittarian quickly will realize can benefit both of you. Meanwhile, someone from the workplace makes an emotional request. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) It might be a good idea to ease up on that hectic pace and spend more time studying things youll need to know when more opportunities come later in November. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A relatively quiet time is now giving way to a period of high activity. Face it with the anticipation that it will bring you some welldeserved boons and benefits. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Go with the flow, or make waves? Its up to you. Either way, youll get noticed. However, make up your own mind. Dont let anyone tell you what choices to make. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to examine everything before you agree to accept what youre told. Your need for truth keeps all those around you honest. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure

Time for tax reformOur IRS tax system is broken and must be replaced! Its full of loopholes and contradictions, and is so complicated its nearly impossible to interpret and administer. The size of the tax code is 70,000+ pages and still growing. Mindboggling! Just to comply with the requirements of the IRS code (filling out tax forms, hiring tax-preparers, etc.), the 2012 compliance costs will be $363 billion. The IRS budget for 2012 is $13 billion. When these costs are factored in, for every $1 expended because of IRS requirements, the IRS collects just $6 in tax revenues. Not a very impressive bang for our buck! This $6 is revenue that will be used to bolster our sagging economy. But, we cant do too much bolstering with only $6. By comparison, fair tax administrative costs will be about $19 billion. For each $1 expended on fair tax, America realizes $136 in tax revenues 22 times the IRSs meager $6. Brief descriptions of the two most talked about types of tax replacement follow: 1. Flat tax: a single-rate tax on income. The concept is an adequate one considering the unfair, multiple-rates we currently have. However, it requires a portion of our existing tax structure which is in disrepair to administer it. And, Congress can pass exceptions to the singlerate until it eventually begins to look like the tax code we now have. Also, a flat tax will not capture the legal and illegal activities of the underground economy. These activities are an estimated $1.3 trillion annually in untaxed earnings. 2. Fair tax: a national consumption or sales tax on the purchase of new goods. It is not income driven. Everybody keeps 100 percent of everything they earn; people always know exactly how much money they have and how much they can spend. The poor are treated more fairly than they are under our current tax system. People are taxed at 23 percent but only on the new things they purchase. The more an entity earns the more things it will buy and the more revenue America will have. The only negative to a fair tax, is that it hasnt yet been implemented. One GOP presidential hopeful proposes a 999 Plan which combines the above two: a 9 percent corporate and 9 percent personal flat tax combined with a 9 percent fair tax. It is better than what we have now, however, considering the above, a standalone fair tax plan is much more logical. If you are truly concerned about Americas future, you must eagerly support the implementation of a tax replacement. Politicians may tell you they support tax reform, but unless they actively push for it, they probably dont. If they dont actively support tax reform, tell them you wont vote for them in 2012. Please begin your tax replacement research at FairTax.org. Its the right thing to do and this is the time to do it.

These self proclaimed champions of the down trodden, are ready to pounce at a moments notice, but are their motives pure? Their tactics legal, or moral? Why are they entitled to the lifestyles, and compensation, of any Robber Baron, off the backs of these unfortunates? They extort money from the down trodden, while holding themselves out as their champions. What a crock. The union leaders are in it for the power, money, and status it gives to them. Bullying can be fun, and profitable. It is our money that pays for all of the extortion that occurs. It is always our money that pays for everything. Costs go up. We pay. Look how they strong arm anyone who asks for a secret ballot when union votes are taken. If that is not bullying, I do not know what is. Recently a woman testified to Congress that her group was denied by the court, a secret ballot on a choice to join or reject the union. What kind of garbage is that? Is this America anymore? I do not recognize it. The college duffers at OWS are living proof of the value of a college education, today. Free tuition, free tuition is their mantra. Forgive my debt; I took the money, now I do not want to pay it back. Any time anyone yells free any more my ears perk up; it means I am going to have to be paying once more for someone elses largesse. I cannot afford any more free stuff. I am at a point where I am about to need free stuff myself. Who will pay for my free stuff? Any volunteers? The leaders will still live like princes, if not kings, I will live as I did during the Depression. Our resources are finite, not infinite. When will we learn? D.I. Larson Ocala Corporations and unions Many people criticize corporations and their executives on the poor leadership of their companies failure to make good business decisions while competing with other companies. Others blame the unions and their organizations leaders for the failure of companies to make a profit. One hundred percent of all companies have executives who are in charge of the business and responsible for production and profits for their own companies. Compare that with 15 percent of the workforce who are unionized and working for these companies. You be the judge on who is responsible for the bottom line profits of these companies. If businesses are failing, its because of the poor job of the 100 percent who are executives and not the 15 percent who are unionized workers who are doing their jobs as instructed. For the few of you who understand math, you realize its the bad decisions from the top 100 percent that is killing our businesses and not the workers who are getting the blame. Jerry Segovis Ocala Explaining deductiblesLast week one of the letters asked: Why The Deductibles? I believe that was a serious question and may be one which many of us have due to not fully understanding how the insurance companies set premiums. Simply, if there were no deductibles, the cost of the insurance would increase dramatically due to the huge difference in the cost of handling many more claims. This cost would be passed down to us, the insured, not absorbed by the insurance company. If I am willing to absorb more of the upfront small claim costs through a larger deductible, I will benefit by having a lower premium. The companies do not benefit by your having higher or lower deductibles because they will set premiums to cover their expenses of administration and claims experience. As an example, check with your insurance company into how much effect the different deductibles can have on the premium charged if you are willing and able to handle a larger deductible. This applies to home, auto and health insurance. In light of the above, I trust you can understand why there is no need for a deductible in life insurance. The only claim expense incurred by the insurance company is at your death, which obviously only happens once. The other coverages are subject to dozens of claims throughout the lifetime of the policy depending on many factors such as driving habits, your health and even acts of GOD. The premium charged normally reflects your individual circumstances. Insurance does spread the risk among many that we as individuals cannot comfortably bear alone. I was in the Life Insurance business for over 40 years and am still amazed at the miracle of Life Insurance. The financial makeup of the company to insure all claims are paid, regardless of time of death, is an actuarial wonder. I am now retired, but if you still have questions, feel free to call me, Im in the phone book.

An attempt at a routine traffic stop turned into a 110 mph chase on Oct. 24 and resulted in multiple charges against the alleged driver. Eric Danzell Humbert Jr. of 107th Place, Dunnellon, faces charges of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, felony fleeing and eluding, resisting without violence and no valid drivers license. According to the report, a deputy on patrol on West State Road 40 spotted a car straddling the yellow line. When he got behind the car it switched lanes and the deputy turned on his emergency lights. Instead of stopping, the driver sped up. At the intersection of State 40 and U.S. 41, the suspect vehicle ran over some stop sticks that had been placed by another deputy. Both left tires went flat, but he kept going on U.S. 41, got to the Chatmire area and fled on foot. A K-9 unit helped track him, and Humbert was arrested an charged. Marijuana was found in the vehicle. According to jail records, the 20-year-old Humbert Jr. had been arrested earlier this month on similar fleeing and no drivers license charges. He also had the same charges in November 2009. He also faced cocaine charges in March of 2009. A Northeast Ocala man was accused of retail grand theft after an incident at Bealls. David Allan Parsley, 47, of Northeast 13th Avenue, was accused of taking 18 belts, tying them around himself under his shirt and trying to leave with them. He was spotted by a loss prevention officer and detained until a deputy arrived. The belts had a total value of $464.

There are developers who make over $9 million dollars a year from amenities fees and dont expend but a minimal part of that amount on so called services like so called security, with gates manned by senior citizens, lawn watering from retention ponds and lawn mowing at a cost of about $8 per lawn. Of course Part B of Medicare will increase as always. But, thats minimal. Its the amenities fees that will take a large chunk. I know mine have increased 34 percent from the original amount we paid when we moved here. Most of amenities fees are scams as services that are being charged are for non-existent services. Maybe Obama isnt too far wrong to tax those with high incomes and lower taxes on lower income families. Think about that. Theres an old song that goes in part, The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Bill Ford Ocala FEMA funding Your columnist on Oct. 7 accused the Democrats of Unlimited spending and vote gathering. They Democrats are simply requesting additional funding for FEMA so that Americans can get help when disaster strikes. We are spending $6.7 billion a month in Afghanstan and Republicans dont want to help our own people to recover from a disaster, how cruel? He then has the gall to praise the Republicans for their unwavering commitment to frugality Where has this columnist been for the last three Republican Presidents? Reagan ran the debt up 20.6 percent in two terms, Bush 1 increased the debt by 13 percent. Democrat, Clinton, reduced the National Debt by 9.7 percent and handed over a $256 billion surplus to Bush 2, who squandered the surplus and ended up with an increase in the National Debt of 27 percent. They all must have forgotten about the Republican commitment to frugality. We now have a Democrat in the White House and the Republicans have suddenly been converted to fiscal conservatives. John Toner Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Check out our website www.smcitizen.com I s it just me, or do others have trouble catching up? Just when it looks like I am almost caught up with some project or my todo-list, something happens setting me back a few paces. One step forward, as they say and for me 17 steps backward. Or, so it seems. I dont have any problem whatsoever catching a cold. I once even caught a fly in my mouth while preaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch the dickens from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Catching up is another matter all together. Two things happened last week that brought this to my attention. First, I took someone out to lunch. That in itself is not outstanding. My wife tells me I am out to lunch all the time. Have you ever tried to impress someone by taking them out to lunch and insist on paying for lunch? That is exactly what I did this past week. Why I ever try to impress anyone is beyond my wifes wildest imagination, but I try, much to her chagrin. With a couple of hours to spare, my friend called me. Immediately I set into action a plan to meet him at the restaurant for lunch on me. We had a grand time catching up on each others life. Personally, I was thrilled to Catch Up on something. Unfortunately, I thought I was on a roll with ham and cheese. It was delicious to enjoy this brief time if only for a moment, but all good things do end. Things were about to turn ugly. No, someone did not bring me a mirror. Instead, the affable waitress brought me the check. Normally, this would not be a problem. I would accept the check after some friendly banter with the waitress complaining about the amount and threatening not to tip her and she threatening to tell my wife. We all smiled and then it happened. I casually reached around to my back pocket to extract my wallet containing my credit card with which I would pay the check. My back pocket was as empty as a politicians promises. At first, a slight streak of panic raced through my The elusive art of catching up O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com person causing me to freeze in petrifying fear. My first thought, I had someone elses trousers on. But whose? More important, where was the man wearing my trousers? I smiled one of those smiles that says, Oops, Im in trouble but I dont want anyone to know. My friend sensed something was wrong; friends are like that. Looking at me he said, Is anything wrong? Being the truthful person I am, I said, Wrong? What could be wrong? Weve just enjoyed a great time together. No, nothings wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong. One problem with friends is they always know when you are lying. My friend was no different. He just looked at me and said, OK, whats wrong? I may have trouble catching up but I have no trouble whatsoever being caught with my pants down. Well, maybe not quite down but certainly empty. Nothing is sadder than a man wearing empty trousers. Did you forget your wallet? my friend asked with delight dancing in his eyes. He happily paid the tab but I will never live it down. The second incident also had to do with my wallet. Although this time, I did not forget my wallet. I had an early morning meeting across town. I knew my car was running on fumes but no need to worry. I left the house early enough to stop and gas up. Pulling out of my driveway, I noticed the gas gauge was lower than I remembered it being the night before. A tinge of terror gripped my mind and I earnestly prayed I would get to the gas station on time. I sighed with relief as I approached a gas station. The station had just opened and the sign on the pump informed me I needed to pay for the gas before pumping it. No problem. I ambled in, presented my credit card and purchased $20 worth of gas. There is a good feeling associated with a schedule well in hand. I glanced at my watch and noticed I was two minutes ahead of schedule. With a whistle on my lips and air between my ears, I got into my car and drove away. Two miles later, I glance at the gas gauge and noticed it had not moved. I tapped the gauge and nothing happened. At that time, the car sputtered and coughed ominously. Then, like a bolt of lightening, it struck me. I had paid for the gas and drove away without pumping it into my car. By this time, the car engine stopped and I had just enough momentum to pull to the side of the road. I sat there a few minutes pondering my dilemma. I knew what I had to do but I did not want to do it. Slowly, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the dreaded number. The phone rang and in a moment, I heard myself speaking into the phone, Honey, can you Waiting for my wife to bring a can of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17 KJV). Good intentions must be accompanied with appropriate action. The Rev. James L.

Royal Oaks Lady NinersThe Lady Niners send a warm welcome to Brenda Raider, our newest member! We also are happy to see our snowbirds back! All Par 3s was the game again on Oct. 20 due to golf carts not being allowed on the fairways. This meant that except for the actual par 3 holes, we started at the 150 yard marker. In Flight A, Patty Waddell was the winner, with Bette Johnson second and B.J. Lassiter third. In Flight B, Ilene Simnowitz was the winner, with Brenda Raider second and Sally Crass third. Salita Timmermeyer won the closest to the pin contest on the 3rd hole. All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The teetimes are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room.

Together with only a handful of his American contemporaries, Chappell reminds us of the almost forgotten phrase man of letters.

WOODBURY Special to the Citizen Tis the season for yard sales! Joy Lutheran Evangelical Church, on State Road 200 in Ocala, had a huge one on Saturday, Oct. 22. What is a yard sale? It is also known as a garage sale, rummage sale, tag sale, attic sale, moving sale, or barn sale. It is an event for the sale of used items by private individuals, and no licenses are required nor taxes collected. Typically the items on sale are unwanted items from one household or multiple households. The items can be new, like-new or just usable, and offered for sale. The popular motivation for these sales is spring cleaning or maybe fall cleaning. Sometimes items are for sale because people are moving or just need some wellearned spending money. Typically the sale venue is a garage, driveway, front yard, porch or even the interior of a house. The staples of these sales can range from books, toys, household items to garden tools and sports equipment. The origin of the modern day yard sale is not really known. For centuries, people have simply laid out a few items on a table or a blanket and bartered for goods and services in exchange for other items of like value or whatever currency that was appropriate for their location. In the USA, the act of going to garage sales has spawned the use of a new verb known as garage saleing. Garage sales have taken on a special meaning to a community and have become events of special local significance. In these situations large areas of a community hold a communal garage sale involving dozens or hundreds of families at the same time. According to Patty Corey, Joy church member, and original organizer of this event since 2005, this is a Womens Evangelical Lutheran Church Association (W.E.L.C.A.) project. It first started as a crafts bazaar until it grew to its current yard sale event. Over the years the women have found the event to be profitable and have used the proceeds to support the building fund and renovate Swenson Fellowship Hall. They have purchased new carpeting, a dishwasher and chairs. They also support some charities with the proceeds. Supportive to the women are the many men who help to make this event successful, especially with the heavy lifting and with the tools and sports equipment. So last Saturday, the garage sale-ing people were lined up before 7 a.m. Often times the early birds are collectors, restorers or resellers who are searching for bargains or for rare and unusual items. Joys sale had many of the small items, household goods, handmade quilts, Christmas decorations and craft items all in the inside of the building. They had a tasty display of baked goods for sale in the kitchen area. Outside there was a coffee shack where you could have a cup or buy a pound of organically, shade grown, South American coffee. In the garage, outside, were many larger items, from cots, lawn furniture, golf clubs, garden tools and more. Some of the customers were looking for specific items, some were just looking. Walking into this large amasses of items, someone said, Oh! I dont know where to start. Many of the folks had been coming to this sale each year where others had read the article in the newspaper or saw the sign on the highway. People came mostly from around Ocala but there were a few from farther away such as Lake City and the country of Norway. And, it wasnt just women who come to yard sales, there were many men represented. One man said, I usually sit in the car while my wife shops, but one day I came in and I got hooked. The cyber age has literally changed the way the world shops. You often hear people say they purchase everything they need or want right online. It would be sad to see fewer yard sales in lieu of shopping online. The mood of this event was friendly, cheerful and bustling with conversation a really nice social experience. Joy Lutheran holds huge yard sale Eight year old Edward and 3 year old Elena found the toys they wanted at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Linda Aker, one of the helpers, showed the Christmas decorations for sale. Solvor Rorkjar, from Norway, found just the hat she wanted. Photos by Norman Halvorsen The yard sale included a coffee shack and Walt Padgett offered a cup of coffee or a pound of coffee to purchase. Gaye Fulsom and June Campbell, from Ocala, were pleased to find a cot that they needed at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Outdoors at the Joy Lutheran Yard Sale there were many tools and sporting equipment available. 0009GVQ Hawthorne Village of Ocala Fri., Oct. 28th 6pm-8pm Pictures in the Pumpkin Patch Haunted Hallway Hawthorne Health and Rehab Center 4100 SW 33rd Ave., Ocala, FL 352-237-7776 Music Entertainment Safe Trick or Treating Fall Plant Sale 1-8pm 0009LV9 Associated Plumbing and Pipe Residential and Commercial 352-804-9165 EPA Lead Certification #NAT-113266-1 OSHA 10 #1216933 Fla.

A lthough our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month (and does quite well, by the way), its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 1, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past eight years. This year, however, they will be assisted by Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. Weve collected 8,437 pounds of food (in our annual drives) since 2004, remarked Gloria. Our best year was in 2009, when the total was over 1,500 pounds. With all this talent working together, and with our help, this years food drive is bound to be another success. So over the next month, lets do our best to make this year even better and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes. All donations are gratefuly accepted. Patrol K-9 Benefit a huge successIt takes a community of dedicated individuals to hold an event that is not only fun but which benefits a good cause. Months of preparation went into planning the K-9 Benefit Luncheon held on Oct. 9 in the Lifestyle Center. From selling tickets, to procuring door prizes; making flyers and posters, to decorating and clean-up (not to mention all the paperwork), the Patrol K-9 Benefit Committee had it all covered. Chaired by Nancy Rife, the committee was composed of Ginger Abbott, Joan Buzzek, Mary Callahan, Ed DeMauex, Pat Mershimer, Charlie Mock, Lorraine Moran, Martha Nierenberg, Carol Pfeil, Joan Ritter, Donna Schmidt and Howard Shay. Musical entertainment was provided by our own Jackie Santone, Dotty Bouchet and Lina Vallejo; and the K-9 demonstration by Lt. Turner and Bolt was just amazing. The luncheon was catered by My Sons Catering, who generously contributed a portion of the ticket sales to the cause. At the end of it all, at the Oct. 11 Tuesday Morning Social, Patrol President Rich Toneske presented a check for $1,325 to Mary Callahan, president of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Foundation. After expressing her gratitude on behalf of the Foundation, Mary assured everyone that the donation will go into the Foundations restricted K-9 Unit fund. So, thank you volunteers for all your hard work; thank you to the businesses that donated goods and services for our door prizes; thank you to our residents for supporting the luncheon; and thank you especially to our Marion County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit for protecting us and our community.Annual fall sale open to the publicThe Marion Landing fall sale will be on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center.

Competition has been fierce, with two teams having earned 19 to 21 points. Team OSIMA was leading with 21 points, with teams High Hopes and Lucky 7 only one point behind. The Better Bs and Four for Fun teams were only to points behind. Individual results have seen some great games, with Bill Hull scoring a game 75 pins over his average and Bill Shampine knocking down 96 pins over his average in his three-game series. For the women, Judy Shuster was 80 pins over her average in one game. Lacoste Riers has the highest mens average through the four week period and Linda McIntyre leads the women. One more bowler is still needed to complete the goal of 18 teams. Bowlers compete on Monday afternoons. Please call League Secretary George Difrancesco if you are interested in joining a group of bowlers who know how to have fun!

Some of the Palm Cay Anglers left Friday, a day before the fishing event, and stayed the night in Daytona with friends and family. And then some of us got up early and met at 4 a.m. (yes I said 4 a.m.) on a Saturday morning at the Oasis and set the GPS for Ponce Inlet, Florida. In less than two hours we reached our destination and there she was, the Sea Spirit. Behind this beautiful fishing lady (our boat and crew) the water glistened and off to the left, a light house with the bright light showing the way to the open sea. We got on board, selected our positions on the boat and after about a 90minute ride, the captain said drop those lines and good luck. We fished... and we fished. I looked to my left and watched as Cal Goude fought and won a fight with a red fish that weighed in at over 20 pounds. The fish was out of season and had to be released. We watched (happy for the fish but sad for Cal) as the fish was returned to the sea. Mean time, little fishies were being caught by all and we were having a blast. This writer was extremely excited when a grouper weighing over 28 pounds took the bait, and one of the very helpful crew assisted in bringing that monster on board with a gaffe hook. The weather was beautiful and the trip rewarding. The Sea Spirit returned to her home port and the gracious captain and crew cleaned and packed our fish for us before we departed for home. The owner of the ship, Capt. Mike, took a moment to personally thank the Palm Cay anglers for fishing with his fleet family. If you missed the adventure, we plan to do it again in April before our winter residents leave for the summer. Check out the Palm Cay entertainment listings for more on this and many other exciting events planned for you, located at the bulletin board in the Oasis. Pictured are the Palm Cay Anglers: (from left to right) Debbie and Steve Smyczek, Cal Goude, Harry Chambers, Roger Demary and Bob Mckaye.

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 ten 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.

Candy corn and other candy packages have taken over an entire aisle and customs fill up most of another aisle in the stores. Wispy appearances of ghosts, globins, and witches seem to be permeating the area. With Halloween this coming Monday, Pun Alley cant resist going there for some haunts and ghostly stories. Actually, Halloween is a distortion of its original name. A long ago butcher tradition was to give customers empty sausage skins at the end of October. This day was known as Hollow Weenie Day.Frankly FrankensteinDespite his evil reputation, Frankenstein actually had a good sense of humor; he kept his monster in stitches. When the monster rose from the table and spat on the ground, the proud doctor exclaimed, Its saliva! Its saliva! Doctor Frankensteins assistant, Igor, was also a doctor and together they were a pair o docs. When they decided to stop making monsters, Igor found a new job at an auto dealership as parts manager. Frankenstein has a new ghoul friend. Hed previously dated a lady scarecrow but went from rags to witches. Little haunts People who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. During the day baby ghosts go to day scare centers. There arent any famous skeletons because theyre a bunch of no bodies. You dont have to be concerned about Daylight Saving Time at Halloween. The holiday is always on Green Witch Mean Time. You always find ghouls and demons together because demons are a ghouls best friend. Programmers get Christmas and Halloween mixed up because 25 DEC equals 31 OCT. Mummies hide by wearing masking tape. If you broke your Jack-olantern you can fix it with a pumpkin patch. Two ghosts were arguing. One wanted to do something difficult. The other ghost said, You dont stand a man of a chance! A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. A ghost was assigned to a new territory. After a few days he asked the boss ghost, Can I go back to my old haunts? If you see twin witches you wont be able to tell which witch is which. On Halloween, a little boy knocked on Johns door. The boy took a look at Johns wife in her mudpack and gave her his candy.Pointed adviceOh, doctor, cried a wild-eyed man, Im dreadfully afflicted. The ghosts of my departed relatives come and perch on the tops of the fence posts all around my garden when dusk is falling. I can look out any evening and see a couple of dozen spooks sitting on the fence, waiting, waiting, and waiting. What shall I do? Sharpen the tops of the posts, advised the doctor. Yummy mummy talesA number of movies featuring the mummy have drawn enormous audiences who watch the action in Horrorscope. The mummys mummy was also an entertainer a famous gauza stripper. Off the silver screen the mummy isnt very popular with the other monsters. They think hes egotistical because hes all wrapped up in himself. Being interested in band ages, he loves music, his favorite style being wrap. He would love to take a vacation at the Dead Sea, but hes afraid that hell relax and unwind too much. A sign in the Egyptian funeral home says, Satisfaction guaranteed or your mummy back. Spell time After a lifetime of hunching over her bubbling cauldron muttering incantations and concocting various enchanted brews, the witch finally came to the realization that she was no longer in her prime. In addition to the pronounced dowagers hump she had developed, her arthritic feet were an almost constant source of pain and torment for her. One evening as she began the tedious task of mincing up a fresh batch of bat tongues and newt eyes, an idea suddenly dawned upon her. If she had a smaller, more portable cutting board, she might just as easily process these ingredients in her lap as she was comfortably seated beside her boiling cauldron. Ah, yes, She muttered to herself. It would be nice to be able to sit for a spell. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Visiting AngelsVisiting 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 ten 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 illFriday, October 28, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com stretching and strengthening exercises set to relaxing music.

On Monday, Oct. 10, more than 135 family, friends and neighbors attended the community memorial luncheon for Bernice Smitty Williams, who passed away on Oct. 5 at the age of 103.

A lthough our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month (and does quite well, by the way), its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 1, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past eight years. This year, however, they will be assisted by Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. Weve collected 8,437 pounds of food (in our annual drives) since 2004, remarked Gloria. Our best year was in 2009, when the total was over 1,500 pounds. With all this talent working together, and with our help, this years food drive is bound to be another success. So over the next month, lets do our best to make this year even better and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes. All donations are gratefuly accepted. Patrol K-9 Benefit a huge successIt takes a community of dedicated individuals to hold an event that is not only fun but which benefits a good cause. Months of preparation went into planning the K-9 Benefit Luncheon held on Oct. 9 in the Lifestyle Center. From selling tickets, to procuring door prizes; making flyers and posters, to decorating and clean-up (not to mention all the paperwork), the Patrol K-9 Benefit Committee had it all covered. Chaired by Nancy Rife, the committee was composed of Ginger Abbott, Joan Buzzek, Mary Callahan, Ed DeMauex, Pat Mershimer, Charlie Mock, Lorraine Moran, Martha Nierenberg, Carol Pfeil, Joan Ritter, Donna Schmidt and Howard Shay. Musical entertainment was provided by our own Jackie Santone, Dotty Bouchet and Lina Vallejo; and the K-9 demonstration by Lt. Turner and Bolt was just amazing. The luncheon was catered by My Sons Catering, who generously contributed a portion of the ticket sales to the cause. At the end of it all, at the Oct. 11 Tuesday Morning Social, Patrol President Rich Toneske presented a check for $1,325 to Mary Callahan, president of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Foundation. After expressing her gratitude on behalf of the Foundation, Mary assured everyone that the donation will go into the Foundations restricted K-9 Unit fund. So, thank you volunteers for all your hard work; thank you to the businesses that donated goods and services for our door prizes; thank you to our residents for supporting the luncheon; and thank you especially to our Marion County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit for protecting us and our community.Annual fall sale open to the publicThe Marion Landing fall sale will be on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center. Previously known as the Bazaar, the Sale is open to the public and will feature items such as jewelry, books, linens, tools, baked goods, and various household items.

Competition has been fierce, with two teams having earned 19 to 21 points. Team OSIMA was leading with 21 points, with teams High Hopes and Lucky 7 only one point behind. The Better Bs and Four for Fun teams were only to points behind. Individual results have seen some great games, with Bill Hull scoring a game 75 pins over his average and Bill Shampine knocking down 96 pins over his average in his three-game series. For the women, Judy Shuster was 80 pins over her average in one game. Lacoste Riers has the highest mens average through the four week period and Linda McIntyre leads the women. One more bowler is still needed to complete the goal of 18 teams. Bowlers compete on Monday afternoons. Please call League Secretary George Difrancesco if you are interested in joining a group of bowlers who know how to have fun! Circle Square Commons MarketThe current hours for the market are 5 to 8 p.m. The hours for November through May 4, 2012 will be 4 to 7 p.m. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 BY HARRY CHAMBERS Special to the Citizen The day came... and after much planning and preparation it could not have gone any better. Some of the Palm Cay Anglers left Friday, a day before the fishing event, and stayed the night in Daytona with friends and family. And then some of us got up early and met at 4 a.m. (yes I said 4 a.m.) on a Saturday morning at the Oasis and set the GPS for Ponce Inlet, Florida. In less than two hours we reached our destination and there she was, the Sea Spirit. Behind this beautiful fishing lady (our boat and crew) the water glistened and off to the left, a light house with the bright light showing the way to the open sea. We got on board, selected our positions on the boat and after about a 90minute ride, the captain said drop those lines and good luck. We fished... and we fished. I looked to my left and watched as Cal Goude fought and won a fight with a red fish that weighed in at over 20 pounds. The fish was out of season and had to be released. We watched (happy for the fish but sad for Cal) as the fish was returned to the sea. Mean time, little fishies were being caught by all and we were having a blast. This writer was extremely excited when a grouper weighing over 28 pounds took the bait, and one of the very helpful crew assisted in bringing that monster on board with a gaffe hook. The weather was beautiful and the trip rewarding. The Sea Spirit returned to her home port and the gracious captain and crew cleaned and packed our fish for us before we departed for home. The owner of the ship, Capt. Mike, took a moment to personally thank the Palm Cay anglers for fishing with his fleet family. If you missed the adventure, we plan to do it again in April before our winter residents leave for the summer. Check out the Palm Cay entertainment listings for more on this and many other exciting events planned for you, located at the bulletin board in the Oasis. Pictured are the Palm Cay Anglers: (from left to right) Debbie and Steve Smyczek, Cal Goude, Harry Chambers, Roger Demary and Bob Mckaye.

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.

Donna Hawley says that her shop will give $1 from each customer to Toys for Tots, and her shop will also be the only drop-off point for toys in Steeplechase. Southern Style is between Bealls and Save-a-Lot. She and her staff showed off a poster which was brought in by Marine Corps League members George Robinson and Jim McCarthy last week. Toys for Tots has moved its headquarters to Jasmine last year the group was in Steeplechase. The South Marion Citizen office, 8810 S.W. State Road 200, Suite 103, will also be a drop-off location for toys after Nov. 1.

Get your hair done, support Toys for Tots Author Chappell to read at CF poetry seriesThe College of Central Florida will present the eighth annual Debra Vazquez Memorial Poetry Series in November with featured author Fred Chappell. The reading is on Thursday, Nov. 3, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ewers Century Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. There is no cost to attend and a book signing will follow. Chappell is the author of 30 volumes of poetry, fiction and literary criticism. His most recent works include Ancestors and Others: New and Selected Stories, 2009, and Shadow Box, 2009. His books of poetry include Spring Garden: New and Selected Poems, 1995, and Backsass, 2004. He is the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the Bollingen Prize, the T.S. Eliot Prize, and the Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger from the Academie Franaise for best foreign book. A founding member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers, Chappell retired after 40 years from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where his students included other celebrated writers such as Reynolds Price and Anne Tyler. Writing in the Los Angeles Times Book Review, Frank Levering stated: Not since James Agee and Robert Penn Warren has a Southern writer displayed such masterful versatility. Together with only a handful of his American contemporaries, Chappell reminds us of the almost forgotten phrase man of letters.

WOODBURY Special to the Citizen Tis the season for yard sales! Joy Lutheran Evangelical Church, on State Road 200 in Ocala, had a huge one on Saturday, Oct. 22. What is a yard sale? It is also known as a garage sale, rummage sale, tag sale, attic sale, moving sale, or barn sale. It is an event for the sale of used items by private individuals, and no licenses are required nor taxes collected. Typically the items on sale are unwanted items from one household or multiple households. The items can be new, like-new or just usable, and offered for sale. The popular motivation for these sales is spring cleaning or maybe fall cleaning. Sometimes items are for sale because people are moving or just need some wellearned spending money. Typically the sale venue is a garage, driveway, front yard, porch or even the interior of a house. The staples of these sales can range from books, toys, household items to garden tools and sports equipment. The origin of the modern day yard sale is not really known. For centuries, people have simply laid out a few items on a table or a blanket and bartered for goods and services in exchange for other items of like value or whatever currency that was appropriate for their location. In the USA, the act of going to garage sales has spawned the use of a new verb known as garage saleing. Garage sales have taken on a special meaning to a community and have become events of special local significance. In these situations large areas of a community hold a communal garage sale involving dozens or hundreds of families at the same time. According to Patty Corey, Joy church member, and original organizer of this event since 2005, this is a Womens Evangelical Lutheran Church Association (W.E.L.C.A.) project. It first started as a crafts bazaar until it grew to its current yard sale event. Over the years the women have found the event to be profitable and have used the proceeds to support the building fund and renovate Swenson Fellowship Hall. They have purchased new carpeting, a dishwasher and chairs. They also support some charities with the proceeds. Supportive to the women are the many men who help to make this event successful, especially with the heavy lifting and with the tools and sports equipment. So last Saturday, the garage sale-ing people were lined up before 7 a.m. Often times the early birds are collectors, restorers or resellers who are searching for bargains or for rare and unusual items. Joys sale had many of the small items, household goods, handmade quilts, Christmas decorations and craft items all in the inside of the building. They had a tasty display of baked goods for sale in the kitchen area. Outside there was a coffee shack where you could have a cup or buy a pound of organically, shade grown, South American coffee. In the garage, outside, were many larger items, from cots, lawn furniture, golf clubs, garden tools and more. Some of the customers were looking for specific items, some were just looking. Walking into this large amasses of items, someone said, Oh! I dont know where to start. Many of the folks had been coming to this sale each year where others had read the article in the newspaper or saw the sign on the highway. People came mostly from around Ocala but there were a few from farther away such as Lake City and the country of Norway. And, it wasnt just women who come to yard sales, there were many men represented. One man said, I usually sit in the car while my wife shops, but one day I came in and I got hooked. The cyber age has literally changed the way the world shops. You often hear people say they purchase everything they need or want right online. It would be sad to see fewer yard sales in lieu of shopping online. The mood of this event was friendly, cheerful and bustling with conversation a really nice social experience. Joy Lutheran holds huge yard sale Eight year old Edward and 3 year old Elena found the toys they wanted at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Linda Aker, one of the helpers, showed the Christmas decorations for sale. Solvor Rorkjar, from Norway, found just the hat she wanted. Photos by Norman Halvorsen The yard sale included a coffee shack and Walt Padgett offered a cup of coffee or a pound of coffee to purchase. Gaye Fulsom and June Campbell, from Ocala, were pleased to find a cot that they needed at the Joy Lutheran Church yard sale. Outdoors at the Joy Lutheran Yard Sale there were many tools and sporting equipment available. 0009GVQ Hawthorne Village of Ocala Fri., Oct. 28th 6pm-8pm Pictures in the Pumpkin Patch Haunted Hallway Hawthorne Health and Rehab Center 4100 SW 33rd Ave., Ocala, FL 352-237-7776 Music Entertainment Safe Trick or Treating Fall Plant Sale 1-8pm 0009LV9 Associated Plumbing and Pipe Residential and Commercial 352-804-9165 EPA Lead Certification #NAT-113266-1 OSHA 10 #1216933 Fla.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, October 28, 2011 www.smcitizen.com person causing me to freeze in petrifying fear. My first thought, I had someone elses trousers on. But whose? More important, where was the man wearing my trousers? I smiled one of those smiles that says, Oops, Im in trouble but I dont want anyone to know. My friend sensed something was wrong; friends are like that. Looking at me he said, Is anything wrong? Being the truthful person I am, I said, Wrong? What could be wrong? Weve just enjoyed a great time together. No, nothings wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong. One problem with friends is they always know when you are lying. My friend was no different. He just looked at me and said, OK, whats wrong? I may have trouble catching up but I have no trouble whatsoever being caught with my pants down. Well, maybe not quite down but certainly empty. Nothing is sadder than a man wearing empty trousers. Did you forget your wallet? my friend asked with delight dancing in his eyes. He happily paid the tab but I will never live it down. The second incident also had to do with my wallet. Although this time, I did not forget my wallet. I had an early morning meeting across town. I knew my car was running on fumes but no need to worry. I left the house early enough to stop and gas up. Pulling out of my driveway, I noticed the gas gauge was lower than I remembered it being the night before. A tinge of terror gripped my mind and I earnestly prayed I would get to the gas station on time. I sighed with relief as I approached a gas station. The station had just opened and the sign on the pump informed me I needed to pay for the gas before pumping it. No problem. I ambled in, presented my credit card and purchased $20 worth of gas. There is a good feeling associated with a schedule well in hand. I glanced at my watch and noticed I was two minutes ahead of schedule. With a whistle on my lips and air between my ears, I got into my car and drove away. Two miles later, I glance at the gas gauge and noticed it had not moved. I tapped the gauge and nothing happened. At that time, the car sputtered and coughed ominously. Then, like a bolt of lightening, it struck me. I had paid for the gas and drove away without pumping it into my car. By this time, the car engine stopped and I had just enough momentum to pull to the side of the road. I sat there a few minutes pondering my dilemma. I knew what I had to do but I did not want to do it. Slowly, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the dreaded number. The phone rang and in a moment, I heard myself speaking into the phone, Honey, can you Waiting for my wife to bring a can of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17 KJV). Good intentions must be accompanied with appropriate action. The Rev. James L.

An attempt at a routine traffic stop turned into a 110 mph chase on Oct. 24 and resulted in multiple charges against the alleged driver. Eric Danzell Humbert Jr. of 107th Place, Dunnellon, faces charges of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, felony fleeing and eluding, resisting without violence and no valid drivers license. According to the report, a deputy on patrol on West State Road 40 spotted a car straddling the yellow line. When he got behind the car it switched lanes and the deputy turned on his emergency lights. Instead of stopping, the driver sped up. At the intersection of State 40 and U.S. 41, the suspect vehicle ran over some stop sticks that had been placed by another deputy. Both left tires went flat, but he kept going on U.S. 41, got to the Chatmire area and fled on foot. A K-9 unit helped track him, and Humbert was arrested an charged. Marijuana was found in the vehicle. According to jail records, the 20-year-old Humbert Jr. had been arrested earlier this month on similar fleeing and no drivers license charges. He also had the same charges in November 2009. He also faced cocaine charges in March of 2009. A Northeast Ocala man was accused of retail grand theft after an incident at Bealls. David Allan Parsley, 47, of Northeast 13th Avenue, was accused of taking 18 belts, tying them around himself under his shirt and trying to leave with them. He was spotted by a loss prevention officer and detained until a deputy arrived. The belts had a total value of $464.

There are developers who make over $9 million dollars a year from amenities fees and dont expend but a minimal part of that amount on so called services like so called security, with gates manned by senior citizens, lawn watering from retention ponds and lawn mowing at a cost of about $8 per lawn. Of course Part B of Medicare will increase as always. But, thats minimal. Its the amenities fees that will take a large chunk. I know mine have increased 34 percent from the original amount we paid when we moved here. Most of amenities fees are scams as services that are being charged are for non-existent services. Maybe Obama isnt too far wrong to tax those with high incomes and lower taxes on lower income families. Think about that. Theres an old song that goes in part, The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Bill Ford Ocala FEMA funding Your columnist on Oct. 7 accused the Democrats of Unlimited spending and vote gathering. They Democrats are simply requesting additional funding for FEMA so that Americans can get help when disaster strikes. We are spending $6.7 billion a month in Afghanstan and Republicans dont want to help our own people to recover from a disaster, how cruel? He then has the gall to praise the Republicans for their unwavering commitment to frugality Where has this columnist been for the last three Republican Presidents? Reagan ran the debt up 20.6 percent in two terms, Bush 1 increased the debt by 13 percent. Democrat, Clinton, reduced the National Debt by 9.7 percent and handed over a $256 billion surplus to Bush 2, who squandered the surplus and ended up with an increase in the National Debt of 27 percent. They all must have forgotten about the Republican commitment to frugality. We now have a Democrat in the White House and the Republicans have suddenly been converted to fiscal conservatives. John Toner Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Check out our website www.smcitizen.com I s it just me, or do others have trouble catching up? Just when it looks like I am almost caught up with some project or my todo-list, something happens setting me back a few paces. One step forward, as they say and for me 17 steps backward. Or, so it seems. I dont have any problem whatsoever catching a cold. I once even caught a fly in my mouth while preaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch the dickens from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Catching up is another matter all together. Two things happened last week that brought this to my attention. First, I took someone out to lunch. That in itself is not outstanding. My wife tells me I am out to lunch all the time. Have you ever tried to impress someone by taking them out to lunch and insist on paying for lunch? That is exactly what I did this past week. Why I ever try to impress anyone is beyond my wifes wildest imagination, but I try, much to her chagrin. With a couple of hours to spare, my friend called me. Immediately I set into action a plan to meet him at the restaurant for lunch on me. We had a grand time catching up on each others life. Personally, I was thrilled to Catch Up on something. Unfortunately, I thought I was on a roll with ham and cheese. It was delicious to enjoy this brief time if only for a moment, but all good things do end. Things were about to turn ugly. No, someone did not bring me a mirror. Instead, the affable waitress brought me the check. Normally, this would not be a problem. I would accept the check after some friendly banter with the waitress complaining about the amount and threatening not to tip her and she threatening to tell my wife. We all smiled and then it happened. I casually reached around to my back pocket to extract my wallet containing my credit card with which I would pay the check. My back pocket was as empty as a politicians promises. At first, a slight streak of panic raced through my The elusive art of catching up O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

These self proclaimed champions of the down trodden, are ready to pounce at a moments notice, but are their motives pure? Their tactics legal, or moral? Why are they entitled to the lifestyles, and compensation, of any Robber Baron, off the backs of these unfortunates? They extort money from the down trodden, while holding themselves out as their champions. What a crock. The union leaders are in it for the power, money, and status it gives to them. Bullying can be fun, and profitable. It is our money that pays for all of the extortion that occurs. It is always our money that pays for everything. Costs go up. We pay. Look how they strong arm anyone who asks for a secret ballot when union votes are taken. If that is not bullying, I do not know what is. Recently a woman testified to Congress that her group was denied by the court, a secret ballot on a choice to join or reject the union. What kind of garbage is that? Is this America anymore? I do not recognize it. The college duffers at OWS are living proof of the value of a college education, today. Free tuition, free tuition is their mantra. Forgive my debt; I took the money, now I do not want to pay it back. Any time anyone yells free any more my ears perk up; it means I am going to have to be paying once more for someone elses largesse. I cannot afford any more free stuff. I am at a point where I am about to need free stuff myself. Who will pay for my free stuff? Any volunteers? The leaders will still live like princes, if not kings, I will live as I did during the Depression. Our resources are finite, not infinite. When will we learn? D.I. Larson Ocala Corporations and unions Many people criticize corporations and their executives on the poor leadership of their companies failure to make good business decisions while competing with other companies. Others blame the unions and their organizations leaders for the failure of companies to make a profit. One hundred percent of all companies have executives who are in charge of the business and responsible for production and profits for their own companies. Compare that with 15 percent of the workforce who are unionized and working for these companies. You be the judge on who is responsible for the bottom line profits of these companies. If businesses are failing, its because of the poor job of the 100 percent who are executives and not the 15 percent who are unionized workers who are doing their jobs as instructed. For the few of you who understand math, you realize its the bad decisions from the top 100 percent that is killing our businesses and not the workers who are getting the blame. Jerry Segovis Ocala Explaining deductiblesLast week one of the letters asked: Why The Deductibles? I believe that was a serious question and may be one which many of us have due to not fully understanding how the insurance companies set premiums. Simply, if there were no deductibles, the cost of the insurance would increase dramatically due to the huge difference in the cost of handling many more claims. This cost would be passed down to us, the insured, not absorbed by the insurance company. If I am willing to absorb more of the upfront small claim costs through a larger deductible, I will benefit by having a lower premium. The companies do not benefit by your having higher or lower deductibles because they will set premiums to cover their expenses of administration and claims experience. As an example, check with your insurance company into how much effect the different deductibles can have on the premium charged if you are willing and able to handle a larger deductible. This applies to home, auto and health insurance. In light of the above, I trust you can understand why there is no need for a deductible in life insurance. The only claim expense incurred by the insurance company is at your death, which obviously only happens once. The other coverages are subject to dozens of claims throughout the lifetime of the policy depending on many factors such as driving habits, your health and even acts of GOD. The premium charged normally reflects your individual circumstances. Insurance does spread the risk among many that we as individuals cannot comfortably bear alone. I was in the Life Insurance business for over 40 years and am still amazed at the miracle of Life Insurance. The financial makeup of the company to insure all claims are paid, regardless of time of death, is an actuarial wonder. I am now retired, but if you still have questions, feel free to call me, Im in the phone book.

Time for tax reformOur IRS tax system is broken and must be replaced! Its full of loopholes and contradictions, and is so complicated its nearly impossible to interpret and administer. The size of the tax code is 70,000+ pages and still growing. Mindboggling! Just to comply with the requirements of the IRS code (filling out tax forms, hiring tax-preparers, etc.), the 2012 compliance costs will be $363 billion. The IRS budget for 2012 is $13 billion. When these costs are factored in, for every $1 expended because of IRS requirements, the IRS collects just $6 in tax revenues. Not a very impressive bang for our buck! This $6 is revenue that will be used to bolster our sagging economy. But, we cant do too much bolstering with only $6. By comparison, fair tax administrative costs will be about $19 billion. For each $1 expended on fair tax, America realizes $136 in tax revenues 22 times the IRSs meager $6. Brief descriptions of the two most talked about types of tax replacement follow: 1. Flat tax: a single-rate tax on income. The concept is an adequate one considering the unfair, multiple-rates we currently have. However, it requires a portion of our existing tax structure which is in disrepair to administer it. And, Congress can pass exceptions to the singlerate until it eventually begins to look like the tax code we now have. Also, a flat tax will not capture the legal and illegal activities of the underground economy. These activities are an estimated $1.3 trillion annually in untaxed earnings. 2. Fair tax: a national consumption or sales tax on the purchase of new goods. It is not income driven. Everybody keeps 100 percent of everything they earn; people always know exactly how much money they have and how much they can spend. The poor are treated more fairly than they are under our current tax system. People are taxed at 23 percent but only on the new things they purchase. The more an entity earns the more things it will buy and the more revenue America will have. The only negative to a fair tax, is that it hasnt yet been implemented. One GOP presidential hopeful proposes a 999 Plan which combines the above two: a 9 percent corporate and 9 percent personal flat tax combined with a 9 percent fair tax. It is better than what we have now, however, considering the above, a standalone fair tax plan is much more logical. If you are truly concerned about Americas future, you must eagerly support the implementation of a tax replacement. Politicians may tell you they support tax reform, but unless they actively push for it, they probably dont. If they dont actively support tax reform, tell them you wont vote for them in 2012. Please begin your tax replacement research at FairTax.org. Its the right thing to do and this is the time to do it.

Friday, October 28, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 28, 2011 T his is Halloween weekend, the time for Trick or Treating all across the land. Children of all ages, sizes and shapes will dress up and look for goodies. The problem is that the caution that children are taught the other 364 days of the year usually goes out the window, as they approach strangers houses and unfamiliar neighborhoods looking for rewards. In this day and age, thats not a good idea. Our paper has been filled with schedules of various Halloween events that are being held this weekend. Parents should take their children to the various gatherings conducted by responsible people and let their children enjoy the festivities with others in a safe atmosphere. In our area, there are various churches that do things to entertain the youngsters. One of the biggest gatherings in western Ocala is at the Sheriffs substation on State Road 200, where a host of activities are planned on Monday from 5 to 9 p.m., all under the supervision of sheriffs personnel. However, be aware that these volunteers from law enforcement are not babysitters. Parents should take the responsibility of being with their children throughout the event (and weve seen some parents in the past who have some pretty good costumes). If youre a parent or guardian, and you children have gone out into a neighborhood for the evening, stress upon them that they should not eat anything until youve had a chance to check it first. When your children get home, look over all the food they received. Its a little sad that we have to warn people about things like this, but thats how the world we live in has evolved. Even innocent children arent immune from those who would try to hurt us in some way. Parents, grandparents and guardians have to be vigilant, and this is the time of the year when we all have to be more careful about our little ones. So enjoy the holiday, in moderation, and take care of our children. And thanks go out to all the volunteers at all the churches and organizations who try to make things just a little safer for all of us. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

I t was hardly more than a footnote on last weeks County Commission agenda, but the county accepted a letter from the city of Ocala pulling out of the negotiated agreement to combine emergency dispatch services. The county had little choice. Thats too bad. Its too bad because the people in the city will be the ones who suffer. Since they pay county taxes, its their taxes that help fund Marion County Fire Rescue, but they also have to pay taxes to support Ocala Fire Rescue. Combining the dispatch services would not only have made the operation more efficient, it would have saved the taxpayers of the city about half a million dollars. One of the comments at a recent City Council meeting concerned the fact that a county crew was dispatched to a city fire recently, as was a city crew. Problem was, the county crew got there first. Shouldnt that be an argument, not only for combining dispatch services to get a response the fastest possible way, but even possibly for merging the two departments into one unit. When you sit back and think of it, theres a definite disadvantage to having two separate fire rescue units operating in the same area, with calls determined by a city-county dividing line that in many cases is so imaginary and convoluted that people dont know where it is. Someone could be dying while someone is trying to figure out which agency should answer the call. This is not a knock on the individuals who serve as firefighters and medical personnel on these emergency runs. When they get there, theyre going to take care of you no matter where you are located. Its getting them there through a duplicative dispatch system that is the problem. The city of Ocala has successfully protected its own little corner of the world but at the expense of its citizens safety and pocketbooks. The last time we looked, Ocala was a part of Marion County. Maybe its City Council ought to start acting that way.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Protecting turf, at our expense Please keep it safe this Halloween Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY RICH LOWRY Special to the Citizen F ar from the street theater and lefty ravings of the Occupy Wall Street protest, ordinary people are posting dispatches about their economic struggles at the "We Are the 99 Percent" Web page. If you put aside the political rants, the stories are a stark pointillist portrayal of the grinding misery of the Great Recession. And Bank of America has very little to do with it. The recession has added a layer of joblessness on top of punishingly dysfunctional and expensive health-care and higher-education systems. Despite themselves, the people posting at the 99 Percent page aren't really making an implicit case for burning down the financial system, but for blowing up how we handle health care and higher education. College students and recent graduates are overrepresented. Their complaint comes down to too much debt, and too few job opportunities to get out from under it. There's the guy with the master's from Harvard who owes $60,000 and lives off temp jobs. There's the woman who is paying her $50,000 debt and the $20,000 debt for her 22-year-old daughter. And on and on. The representatives of these debt-burdened graduates shouldn't be at Zuccotti Park, but at the American Association of University Professors or some other arm of the academic complex that gouges students. College tuition has been increasing at a rapid clip. Does anyone believe that higher ed is getting constantly better? It's an inflationary spiral, partly driven by a federal student-loan program that feeds the maw of the beast regardless of quality or outcomes. Another running theme is the high cost of health care and the lack of insurance. One man writes of his job "that pays 15 percent less than it did five years ago" even as "health insurance costs are up over 175 percent." Expressing a characteristic plaint in an era of stagnating income, he says "Everything costs more, yet I make less!" Many of those posting their stories are members of the working class or struggling middle class. There is an undercurrent of family breakdown -the woman whose husband left her after 30 years, the hard-pressed single moms. There are tales of men losing decent-paying jobs and finding nothing comparable. The puerile ideology of Occupy Wall Street is irrelevant to all of this. Goldman Sachs could be dissolved tomorrow and the wealth of the 1 percent confiscated, and it wouldn't make college or health care cheaper, or create one new job. If the "revolution" yearned for by the protesters is insipid, there's no doubt that the moment calls for bold economic reforms and a rethinking of health care and higher education. President Barack Obama's misbegotten contribution is a health-care law that won't control costs and will insure more people only while making the current system more unsustainable. Republicans often don't even bother to try to connect their program to the troubles of workers down the income scale. The leading establishment Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, wants to cut their capital-gains taxes. The leading tea party presidential candidate, Herman Cain, wants to raise their taxes. If nothing else, "We Are the 99 Percent" is a reminder that the suffering is real.

Mary Belanger is co-chair of the Ways and Means Committee, and advises, This is one of our most popular events and the fashons from Greiners and Belks are perfect for the coming holidays. Some of the fashions will be modeled by members of the club. Venie Halgrim, co-chair of the committee, has selected many delicious and flavorful teas and various finger sandwiches and sweets. She noted, The price of the ticket remains the same, $12 each. It is a great value for the money and the tickets go fast. I would advise calling early to reserve and prepay for your tickets, bring a friend. It is a delightful day out, the fashions are beautiful and the food is delicious.

Now in Childs 16th novel, the author gives us a prequel showing us Reacher as an army major and setting up the circumstances that led to his leaving the service. In an early scene of The Affair Reacher says, The clock in my head woke me at five, two hours before dawn on Friday, March 7, 1997. The first day of the rest of my life. His orders: go undercover to a rural Mississippi town near Fort Kelham, keep your distance and monitor the investigation of a young murdered woman. There is constant pressure from the Pentagon to catch her killer but only if hes a civilian. The local sheriff is beautiful Elizabeth Deveraux who immediately blows Jacks cover because she was once a Marine MP and knows a thing or two. Gradually, they work together under difficult conditions. They cant get near the base because a shadow force has formed a quarantine zone around it. The base is unusual in at least one respect: Fort Kelham was still operating as a legitimate Ranger training school in addition to being used to house two full companies of grown up Rangers, both hand picked from the 75th Ranger Regiment, designated Alpha Company and Bravo Company, who deployed covertly to Kosovo on a rotating basis, a month at a time. The remote location of northeastern Mississippi was a perfect cover for the secret operation. Shortly after arriving in tiny Carter Crossing, Reacher learns that other young women have been murdered prior to the most recent case in similar fashion. Thus, the narrative tension generated is whether Jack Reacher is going to protect the Armys interests or act on the truth wherever that leads him. While working the case, Deveraux and Reacher slowly fall in love over countless cheeseburgers and peach pie servings in the towns only diner. The story unfolds in formulaic thriller style with a surprise ending each chapter to keep the reader engaged. This novel which fills in the gaps in Reachers background should interest his many fans. In the meanwhile, many of those fans are outraged at the casting of Child ninth novel for the movie One Shot. Burly, 6-foot-5 Reacher will be played by diminutive Tom Cruise.

Starting this month, utility customers who replace old toilets with new, water-efficient models could be eligible for toilet rebates. Qualifying customers who replace one toilet could receive up to $100 in rebates; those who replace a second toilet will be eligible for up to another $80 in reimbursements. The rebates will be issued as water bill credits. To qualify, an individual must: Be a Marion County Utilities water customer in good standing. Live in a home built prior to 1995. Plan to replace a toilet of 3.5 or more gallons. Call to verify eligibility and reserve the rebate at 1-800-964-2140. Customers are encouraged to reserve their rebate as soon as possible since only 1,400 rebates are available this year. Toilets installed prior to 1995 typically use 3.5 or more gallons of water with each flush. New models use only between 1.2 1.6 gallons per flush. Replacing just one high-flow toilet with an ultra low-flow toilet could save more than 1,000 gallons of water per month. Marion County Utilities funds the Toilet Rebate Program in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Withlacoochee River Basin Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District.

Since 1988, families have purchased more than 1.4 million Florida Prepaid College Plans, making it the largest and most successful prepaid plan in the nation. Nearly one in 10 Florida children has a Florida Prepaid College Plan. When your child is ready for college, this years Florida Prepaid College Plan will cover the cost of tuition and most required fees at Floridas 11 state universities and 28 Florida Colleges(formerly community colleges) and can also include dormitory housing. If the student decides to attend an out-of-state college, technical school or a private college in Florida, the value of the plan may be transferred to any eligible educational institution.

She was born in 1908 in Dayton, and one of her earliest memories was what is called the Great Flood of Dayton in March, 1913. She didnt elaborate, but a lookup on the Internet found that parts of Dayton were under 20 feet of water from the Miami River, and this led to one of the nations first flood control projects. She had two sisters, and two brothers, and went to Holy Name School in Dayton. I helped my mother by working in a factory. She moved to Florida, in the Astor area along State Road 40 east of Ocala, because her husband loved to go fishing. This was her second husband. After her first spouse died, she met up with a boy she knew in the first grade, ironically, at a wake, and thats the man who brought her to Florida. After her first wedding she had two children, but the Great Depression was just around the corner. We had it rough. We had bought a home and a car, but we couldnt pay for both, so we had to sell the car to pay for the house. She said her husband would bring home $18 a week. We walked everywhere. Last week her daughter from Ohio called and said she had heard from Prudential, that they still had her on the books, and that she was due some money. She wasnt sure how much. Like many others past retirement age, she is also aware of scams, and a recent call that asked for her age and name to do with Social Security set off warning bells. Her daughter did the follow-up to make sure she wasnt being gypped. After Colleen finished putting Margarets hair up, she went to sit under a dryer, where the staff surprised her with a cake and a song, and later in the day would head back to Cherrywood, her home since 1997.

He would talk, but I wouldnt stop. I thought he was flirting with me. After a short pause, Margaret said, Maybe he was. That man in Dayton was Orville Wright, whose work in places such as that lab helped lead us to where we are in air travel today. Margaret turns 103 years old this weekend. As she has done every Thursday since the shop opened, she was in Shear Joy salon on Southwest 103rd Street Road last week to get her hair done. Owner Colleen Peluso and her staff celebrated with a birthday cake for the very sharp and alert Margaret. She lives with her daughter, Shirley Skaggs, in Cherrywood. She has another daughter, Marguerite Turner in Ohio. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKMargaret Kender, 103, gets her hair done by Colleen Peluso at Shear Joy.

Wait until Dark, written by Fredrick Knott, is a suspenseful thriller which was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967. The cast and crew of Wait until Dark consist of more than 30 students in the Marion County Center for the Arts acting and technical theatre program. The production is directed by Christopher Vaida who also served as technical director for the production. Production stage manager is Reem Okab, set design is by Ignacio Scannone, lighting design is by Justin Gonzalez, sound design is by Wilson Vinas, and costume design is by Zoe Miller and Corinne Proetto. Playing the role of Suzy is Jessica Hirsch, a senior in the acting and musical theatre programs. After first reading Wait until Dark, I really thought that this was a play unlike anything I have ever seen. Its a top notch thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. There are plenty of movies like that, but not many stage plays. So, its refreshing to be energized in that whats going to happen next kind of way, Hirsch states. Other cast members include Keaton Long, Peter Buffie, Krista Alvarado, Alex Hernandez, Brendien Mitchell, Thomas Brugger, and Michael Arvay. The Marion County Center for the Arts (MCCA) is a magnet program for gifted and talented high school students in the performing and visual arts.
