Steven Rohn, 21, from Alaska, along with his wife, Francesca, is visiting family in the western Ocala area, and the couple brought their daughter, Addison, 21 months, to the Halloween party at the Southwest District Sheriffs Office on State Road 200 Monday night. Steven is about to say goodbye to his family for a while, as the two-year Army veteran is about to be deployed to Afghanistan. Addison was just one of dozens of children who attended the event, put on by Sheriffs officials.

WOODBURY Special to the CitizenIt started out as a cool, rainy day, but thankfully the sun came out in time for the blessing of the animals at Joy Lutheran Church on Saturday, Oct. 29 outside in the Memorial Garden. More than 30 people came with their pets about 19 dogs of all sizes and four cats. There were cockapoos, poodles, a dachshund, a bulldog and a large German shepherd plus other mixed breeds. Most came from Ocala, with one from Hernando. The Rev. William Rosenow, retired parish pastor, currently acting as a supply pastorfilling in wherever he is neededand a member of Joy Lutheran Church officiated at this service. He offered prayers and read from Genesis, Chapter 1And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind. Pastor Rosenow asked each person to share some insights regarding their pet. Many of the pets had been adopted from the Humane Society shelters. One person said he was raised on a farm and felt that having animals was a good way to learn about life. Many praised their pets as a comfort, loyal, with a forgiving nature, certainly a lesson we can all learn. They give back so much and ask for little. One person expressed that her pet was a comfort and Blessed day for animals Stone named chair of County CommissionCharlie Stone was elected chairman by his fellow commissioners as he serves his final year on the county board. Stone has indicated he will not run again in 2012. Kathy Bryant, who was elected in 2010, was named vice chair. PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENThis little cockapoo waited its turn for the blessing. PLEASESEEANIMALS, PAGE16 World War II vets visit D.C. memorials The 4th Mission Honor flight carrying about 100 veterans from World War II landed around 10:15 Thursday night at the Ocala International Airport. The group had been on a oneday trip to Washington, D.C., paid for by donations. Those needing assistance were provided with any needed assistance on all parts of the trip. Honor Guards from some local organizations joined the crowd in welcoming the veterans home. A fire truck sprayed water on the plane just before it unloaded its precious cargo. There were musicians on the tarmac entertaining the large crowd gathered while waiting for the plane to arrive. A check was also presented from the Spruce Creek Preserve community for $1,130 to help offset the costs of the flight. Boy Scouts in attendance collected donations from the people gathered to welcome the veterans home. Firefighters who made the trip were honored by the county.

Living in the middle of horse country makes it hard for us to realize that Floridas cattle industry is one of the 15 largest in the United States. In 1521 Ponce de Leon brought horses and cattle to Florida, making it the oldest cattle raising state in the nation. In addition to ranches, diary farms throughout Florida bring some stories to this weeks Pun Alley.Sonnys placeAt the turn of the century a cattle baron bought his three boys a ranch near Arcadia to raise cattle. He named it Focus because thats where the sons raise meat. They kept track of the cows and bulls on a catalyst.Off the cuffCowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe. Pair of cufflinks, said Fess. But I aint got no use for them. I cant even find anyplace to get my wrists pierced. Real dudeThe lady had come to a dude ranch and was all ready to take her first horseback ride. She said to the cowboy, Can you get me a nice gentle pony? Shore, said the cowboy. What kind of saddle do you want, English or western? Whats the difference? asked the lady. The western saddle has a horn on it, said the cowboy. If the traffic is so thick here that I need a horn on my saddle, I dont believe I want to ride. RomanticThe sun was dropping behind the horizon. The moon was beginning to rise. All was quiet on the farm, and the gentle breeze hinted at romance. The farm boy and the pretty girl from the next farm strolled hand in hand through the pasture. They stopped to watch the calf and its mother rubbing noses. Id like to be doing that, said the farmer boy wistfully.

Nevertheless, they eventually got married. Instead of lighting a unity candle at the ceremony, they each poured a little cream from their respective dairies into the same bowl. They were cream-mated.BitsCowboys can get a sickness from riding wild horses. Its called bronchitis. The cross-eyed dog kept barking up the wrong tree. The ranch owner used to sleep in a chandelier. He was a light sleeper. After a day at the animal auction, he felt like he was a hoarse trader. The bowlegged cowboy was fired because he couldnt keep his calves together. Visitor: Wow, you have a lot of flies buzzing round your horses and cows. Do you ever shoo them? Cowboy: No we just let them go barefoot.Dressed horseA rancher was trying to sell a horse. After exercising it, he exclaimed to his prospective buyer, Dont you admire his coat? His coat is fine, said the prospect, but I dont care for the pants. Lotta bullBack many years ago, two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherited the family ranch. To keep from going broke, they needed to purchase a bull so they could breed their own stock. The brunette took their last $600 and drove north to a ranch where a man had a prize bull for sale. Upon leaving home, she had told her sister, If I buy the bull, Ill contact you to come for me and haul it home. The brunette inspected the bull and decided to buy it. The man told her the price was $599 firm. After paying him, she drove to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram. At the telegraph office she said, I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that Ive bought a bull. She has to bring our pick-up truck and trailer here so we can haul it home. The telegraph operator explained, Its just 99 cents a word. After paying for the bull, the brunette only had $1.00. She realized shed only be able to send one word. She said, I want you to send the word, comfortable. The telegraph operator replied, How is she ever going to know that you want her to bring the pickup truck and trailer here to haul that bull back if you send the word, comfortable? The brunette explained, My sisters blonde. Shell read it slowly.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. 0009QCR Sponsored by: Herbert W.

Food is a traditional part of holiday festivities, but enjoying it excessively can quickly lead to weight gain, as well as unhealthy changes in blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol. But before you go cold turkey this Thanksgiving or toss your Christmas cookie recipes, read on for tips to enjoy the seasons festive fare without the unhealthy consequences. The challenge to enjoying healthy holiday food is to eat reasonable servings of healthier versions of your favorite dishes. Portion control can make a big difference in preventing those insidious extra pounds and adapting recipes to include healthy ingredients reduces calorie intake and increases nutrient content. Adapt the recipes of your favorite dishes by eliminating or reducing unhealthy ingredients and adding healthier ingredients. Keep in mind, its easier to adjust ingredients such as butter, sugar and salt in cooked dishes and harder to adjust them in baked goods. These ingredients play a more vital role in baked goods (e.g. salt and sugar in yeast breads), and it may be easier to just use a pre-modified and pretested recipe. 1. Reduce fat by using non-fat or low-fat dairy products. For example, use nonor low-fat milk and sour cream, light butter or margarine, nonor low-fat Greek or regular yogurt and reduced fat cheeses. 2. Slightly reducing sugar has little or no effect on the final product in cooked (not baked) sweetened dishes such as sweet potato casserole. Dont try to reduce sugar in baking applications; sugar imparts tenderness, moisture and browning in these foods and is vital in yeast breads. 3. Reduce or eliminate salt in almost all recipes. Remember that processed foods contain more sodium, so choose natural foods whenever possible. Dont reduce salt in yeast breads; without salt, the dough will rise too quickly, affecting the shape and flavor. 4. Add vegetables to almost any entre, side dish, soup or salad. Stuffing is the perfect food for adding vegetables; summer squash, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, onions and celery add flavor and moisture and reduce calories per serving. 5. Add fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin, carrots or zucchini to quick-bread batters. Try stewed fruit with meat and poultry and dried fruit pilaf, orange sections and dried cranberries with salads. Plain fruits and vegetables are a real calorie bargain at 60 and 25 calories per half-cup serving, respectively. 6. Use the natural sugars of fruit to sweeten nonbaked foods. For example, remake your sweet potato casserole by using pineapple, sliced apples and raisins instead of syrup, brown sugar, butter and marshmallows.Have questions?

BOSTON -U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio changes the landscape in Florida when added to the Republican ticket, according to a Suffolk University/7NEWS (WSVN-Miami) poll of registered voters in Florida. Assuming the selection of Rubio in the vice president spot, the Republican presidential nominee would secure 46 percent to President Barack Obamas 41 percent, with 2 percent voting for an independent candidate and 12 percent undecided. The poll also showed Mitt Romney (25 percent) running neckand-neck with Herman Cain (24 percent) among registered Republicans in Florida. Marco Rubio secures Florida which, along with Ohio, is one of the two most important swing states to win, said David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Bostons Suffolk University. He also adds potential strength in states like New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, and Nevada, which have high Hispanic populations. Without Rubio in the mix, Obama tied Mitt Romney at 42 percent, led Herman Cain 42 percent to 39 percent, led Rick Perry 46 percent to 34 percent, led Ron Paul 44 percent to 32 percent, and led Newt Gingrich 45 percent to 38 percent. Rubios significant impact was measured among Hispanic voters and younger voters. For example, with Rubio included as vice president, the Republican ticket wins 53 percent to 33 percent among Hispanic voters and 47 percent to 40 percent among younger voters ages 18-44, where Rubio has broad appeal. While Obama struggles in the low 40 percent range on job performance and head-to-head matchups with Romney and Cain, he rockets to 50 percent when Hillary Clinton is added to the Democratic ticket. When asked which ticket voters would support assuming a Democratic ticket of Obama-Clinton or a Republican ticket, 50 percent chose Obama-Clinton; 41 percent would vote Republican; 2 percent would select an independent candidate; and 6 percent were undecided. Its ironic that in the 2008 Democratic Primary, Barack Obama had to overthrow Clinton and the more traditional factions of the Democratic Party to win the nomination, said Paleologos. Now Clinton has become the quantifiable lifeboat that could save a sinking Democratic ticket in 2012. The Suffolk University Political Research Center tracked Clintons popularity during midterm-election-cycle polling in October 2010, when her favorability was running 10to-14 points higher than Obamas in key states like Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Today in Florida, Clintons 64 percent favorable rating is 19 points higher than Obamas 45 percent. Every extra percentage point advantage could mean major color changes on the electoral map, despite Hillary Clintons repeated refusals, said Paleologos. On the question of loyalty, Obama may have to grapple with his loyalty to his running mate Joe Biden versus his loyalty to the Democratic Party by fielding the strongest ticket possible. In the marquee matchup of an Obama-Clinton ticket versus a GOP ticket with Rubio as vice president, Obama led 46 percent to 43 percent, with 10 per-Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Jasmine Plaza 352-401-0001 Jasmine Plaza 352-401-0001 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 Ocala, Florida 34476 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 Ocala, Florida 34476 STORE HOURS: TUES.-FRI. 10-5 SAT. 10-2 STORE HOURS: TUES.-FRI. 10-5 SAT. 10-2 Readers Choice Winner Jewelry Store 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 www.jandjjewelersocala.com Affordable New & Estate Jewelry 0009PQD All repairs done on premises.

Hope Dawn Carrato, 45, of Southwest 158th Lane, Florida Highlands, was at her home when deputies arrived. The victim said a verbal argument had broken out and that Carrato grabbed a knife and held it up to his neck. He told deputies, according to the report, that he was scared and slapped Carratos hand away from his neck area and she then put the knife away. Carrato said she had put the knife to his neck, but it was only a Halloween joke. According to the report, both parties had been drinking. Carrato was arrested and taken to jail. A local woman was given a notice to appear for retail petit theft after an incident at Bealls. Megan Anne Lagrasta, 18, of Southwest 46th Court, allegedly took nine items of clothing.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Madeleine Hanna has always loved reading. Thats why shes an English Major at Brown University. But its 1982 and Brown is a hotbed of postmodernism which means her beloved novels are out and Lacan and Derrida are in. Madeleines favorites Jane Austen and Henry James have been relegated to the shadow land of literary history. But her affection for the marriageplot novels, those books usually ending in weddings, remains solid. Madeleine felt safe in a nineteenth-century novel. There were going to be people in it. Something was going to happen to them in a place resembling the world. Even so, not wanting to be labeled a 19th-century nerd trapped in another time, she holds her nose and studies deconstruction and takes a course in semiotics. It is here that she meets the love of her life, a moody science major named Leonard. In a clever twist on Jane Austen romances, the author brings to The Marriage Plot his own wry commentary on love triangles and contemporary marriage. When the novel opens, its Madeleines graduation day. Shes hung over, still smarting from an argument with her friend Mitchell Grammaticus and dreading breakfast with her rich, very proper parents. On this gloomy spring day the future is iffy at best for Madeleine and her fellow graduates. The recession is deep; jobs are scarce; and relationships are indeterminate. She and boyfriend Leonard have temporarily broken up. He is a hopeless manic depressive, scorned by her mother and married sister Alwyn. In a throwback to an Austen novel they both want her to hold out for someone more in keeping with her station in life, not play nursemaid to a poor, unemployed misfit. As Leonard and Madeleine sort out their differences, the lovesick, spurned Mitchell embarks on a religious odyssey. This is a quirky, unconventional, unsentimental love story but a love story nevertheless as these three young people grope painfully, glacially toward individual resolutions Quirky love story BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Book sale for Blind CenterA book sale will take place Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Florida Center for the Blind, 7634 S.W. 60th Ave., Ocala.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 4, 2011 The Halloween carnival at the Southwest District Sheriffs Office property Monday provided some happy moments for a lot of children, but in my eyes there was one incident I had that left me feeling a little bit sad and angry at the same time. To be sure, the carnival was great. An awful lot of people volunteered to put on the event, and it seemed this year that the children were much more appreciative of what was going on. There were games and prizes, horses, rescue truck, bomb squad and dancing with a disc jockey, face painting and all those other good things that go with an evening of celebration. At one point I was wandering around looking for cute kids to take a picture of. I saw this young couple with a little girl who seemed mesmerized by what was going on around her. I told the parents who I was and what I was doing, and asked permission to take her picture (as a matter of fact, everyone I asked all evening was very friendly and cooperative). After I took the girls photo, I asked my usual three questions of the parents: Whats her name, how old is she, and what part of town do you live in. One of the answers got my attention. After the name and age, the mother, Francesca Rohn, said, Actually, were from Alaska. The husband immediately added, Im in the military, and were here visiting family. Before I could get another question out, his wife said, Hes being deployed. It turns out that Steven Rohn, 21, has been in the Army for two years and is getting ready to go to Afghanistan. We talked for a couple of minutes, and then parted ways as they headed for another attraction and I looked for more pictures to take. A little while later I got in my car to go home, and I began thinking about that incident. The more I thought about it, the more upset I got. Here was a nice young couple, presumably just starting out, thousands of miles away from home, and this husband and father was about to go even farther as he heads for Afghanistan. I sat there wondering why. If we are so strong militarily, why havent we ended these hostilities by now, so we dont have to send people like this away from their families, leaving this young mother to cope with a 21-monthold daughter. With all the stuff about Khadafy (however you spell it) and about Iraq recently, Afghanistan has kind of been the forgotten war. This chance meeting put a real face on the battle, a face of those headed to that country. It was some time ago that things were supposedly going our way in Afghanistan. Toby Keith was making jokes about the Taliban in their caves and singing about our victories. But while those days have faded, Afghanistan hasnt gone away. We got proof of that right here on the Corridor this Monday. Its too bad President Obama and some of our representatives and senators werent there Monday. It might have been enlightening for them to meet real people who are affected by their actions (or inactions). Lets not forget these young soldiers over there. All of us should wish the best for all of them, and particularly for Scott Rohn. We should adopt him as one of ours and hope that in a couple of years hell be back at the carnival treating Addison to another Halloween.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The Sheriffs Office came out with its annual list of sex predators and sex offenders last week. The booklet lists 648 violators with their photos and home addresses, all of which are public record. Although, fortunately, we didnt recognize anyone I knew, it did make for some interesting reading. The violators are broken down by Zip Code, which makes comparison of the areas quite easy. As an aside, it also shows how ridiculous the Zip Code designations are, with adjacent Zip Code numbers at opposite ends of the county, and two different Zip Codes for the County Jail. That, of course, is a postal service problem. Of the 648 violators, 25 are currently in jail, 16 are women, and the vast majority are white males. Looking at the breakdown by Zip Codes, the ones with more than 30 violators include Citra, Ocklawaha, Belleview, Dunnellon, and the Shores area. There is one northwest area that has a large number, but about half its list includes people in the county jail. Some Zips have only one or two people listed, but that is misleading, because it is mostly the Zip Codes that are shared with another county. Supposedly the list is accurate, but were a little nervous about printing specific addresses of anyone, because we are such a mobile society. There are 15 people listed in the Zip Code serving much of our area, 34481. If you go to http://www.marionso.com/main.php which is the sheriffs website, there are links enabling you to search for the offenders and predators in your area. For the protection of you and your family, you should familiarize yourself with the names and addresses, and pictures, of anyone listed in your familys area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY It could be your neighbor A Halloween visitor from Alaska Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON Special to the CitizenWhoever takes the oath of office as President of the United States in January of 2013 will inherit an economy facing multiple challenges: Undoubtedly, still-escalating federal spending will have the government bumping up against the debt ceiling again. By then, total federal debt will be larger than our GDP Unemployment is likely to remain high. The supply and reliability of our power-generating infrastructure will be stressed and at risk due to President Obamas antienergy policies. Social Security and Medicare will still need to be reformed significantly to address long-term fiscal imbalances. And the economy will encounter new headwinds as the landmines of tax increases with which Obama has salted the economic landscape are detonated. These include new taxes for Obamacare, the scheduled expiration of the Bush tax cuts, and the end of Obamas temporary reduction in Social Security withholding. Obama has shown no indication of modifying his policies or agenda. Presumably, any of the Republican candidates would favor change on these issues (although perhaps not on Social Security and Medicare), but would he or she actually be able to solve these problems, even if there were a veto-proof Republican Congress? The big political question for election year 2012 is: How much change would Republicans want? Would they downsize government as much as Obama upsized it? Will Republicans nominate a safe, moderate candidate (think: Ford, Bush, and Dole)a technocratic tinkerer who accepts the entrenched paradigm of Big Government, and seeks to manage Leviathan better than Democrats would? Or will they opt for an unabashed conservative, a major reformer with a radical vision for smaller government? That question wasnt even conceivable a year ago, but the tectonic plates in the American political landscape may be starting to shift. Whiffs of radical reform are in the air. Herman Cain, who favors a three-step plan to replace the income tax with a national sales tax and the privatization of Social Security, has risen in the polls since his impressive victory in the Sept. 24 Florida straw poll. On Sept. 27, Newt Gingrich unveiled his st Century Contract With America, proposing to replace such venerable bureaucracies as the National Labor Relations Board and the Environmental Protection Agency. In doing so, Gingrich dared to challenge two of the most powerful Democratic special interest groups in America, environmentalists and labor unions (the strangest political bedfellows in our country, since hardcore greens would eliminate jobs in industry if they could). It is possible that the bold proposals of Cain and Gingrich are just so much noise red meat offered by dark horse candidates designed to excite passionate conservatives, but that are anathema to Republicans who believe that a more centrist nominee would be more electable? Another possibility is that a READER OPINIONS INVITED Looking ahead to 2012, 2013 and 2014 PLEASESEEGUEST, PAGE9 We deserved it and finally got a beautiful cool down with our weather. Hurricane season is almost over and Ocala has been spared once again. Is this a great place to live or what?Feature of the monthThe feature this month is Delores and Bill Pecor. Bill Pecor was born in Cornish, N.H., and had two brothers and one sister. The family moved to Manchester, Conn., where Bill and his siblings attended East Hartford elementary and high schools. After high school Bill worked at East Hartford housing (for veterans). He later worked at Brainard Field (a small military airport). He remained there for 32 years. He met Delores Picard in 1955. Delores was born in North Grosvenardale, Conn., and went to St. Joseph elementary and high schools. After graduation she went to work at a textile company that made Arrow shirts. The mill closed and Delores moved with her aunt and uncle to East Hartford and got a job at Aetna Insurance Company when she met Bill in 1955 and they married in 1956 (she didnt have to change her initials). They had three children, David born in 1958, Michele in 1962 and William in 1966. Later came four grandchildren. David resides in Davenport, Florida, Michele in Massachusetts, and William in Connecticut. Delores worked at the University of Connecticut, for 11 years. Bill and Delores retired to Ocala in 1990 and bought a home in Spruce Creek North. Bill does excellent woodworking and oil paints beautifully. He plays pool (billiards) and occasionally likes to golf (when he has the time). He and Delores bowled for many years and they love to travel. Delores leads water exercise (in the summer) one day a week and indoor exercise one day a week. She belongs to the SCN Quilt club, loves to read, cook and play the piano. They both love gardening and plant many organic vegetables. They enjoy their morning walks. They belong to Queen of Peace church where Delores serves as a sacristan. All the way from Connecticut to Ocala, this couple enjoys the good life in Spruce Creek North.Pancake BreakfastThe third SCN pancake breakfast of the new season will be Nov. 26 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. There will be sausages, French toast, pancakes, orange juice, coffee or tea, all for $3 per person.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com majority of Republicans will regard the 2012 election as an existential crossroad for our country, a last chance to change direction before we end up like Greece financially bankrupt, economically moribund, and politically convulsed. In this scenario, just as the Democrats in 2008 nominated a man of the left, Obama, rather than a more centrist candidate, so the GOP will nominate an anti-Obama, a true-blue conservative as committed to a radical swing to the right, just as Obama pushed a radical swing to the left. If the political pendulum swings far enough to the right to produce a 2012 conservative electoral landslide, and then Republicans follow through with bold cuts in federal spending and power, the years 2013 and 2014 will be crucial. If conservative policies revive the economy quickly, then Republicans could hold on to their 2012 gains in the 2014 mid-term elections. If not, or if they step on too many toes, then there could be an anti-Republican backlash for moving too far to the right, just as voters punished Democrats in the 2010 elections for moving too far to the left. If a sizable Republican majority were elected in 2012, would they "roll the dice" and risk political suicide by instituting major reforms? I imagine there is some serious soulsearching going on now. I wonder how many of them are grappling with the dilemma that must confront every officeseeker in a democratic electoral system: Should I do what will get me elected or reelected, even if I know that the policies I support will weaken our country, or should I vote for what I know will help the country, even if it costs me my political career? These next few years will be fascinating.Dr. Mark W.

Martha Vaughn Chairperson Co-Owner, Dunnellons Turner House Florist LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Recently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person who designed the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Im thinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I know I need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to remind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have any room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was in I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? Personally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the entire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. However, I can live with some of these inconveniences. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. If there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would be a happy flyer. It has been a while since I flew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of the fees associated with flying these days someone has not come up with the bright idea of charging a fee for everyone to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go through a very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgotten how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to make sure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. Then, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my underwear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, so I had to take that out and put in a tray. Again, I walked through and the buzzer went off. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? My wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and then walked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. At this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could take off. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in the buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other side of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. You have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and then said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont you? With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentleI dont mind flying; airports are the problem OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

At this time of the year, Jews all over the world read the story of Noah and the Ark. In this well-known tale, Noah, a righteous man in his time, builds an ark to hold all the species of earth because he has been told by God that God will destroy the earth because of humankinds wickedness. Noah and his family are saved from destruction and at the end of the story, the Almighty makes a covenant with Noah that never again would a global flood destroy the world; the sign of this solemn oath was the rainbow in the sky. A familiar segment found in the Hebrew Bible, it also is studied by Christians and Muslims. While the tale is intriguing and teaches many lessons, it is what happens after the Flood, which is most interesting. God gives human beings three laws, which the rabbis have increased to seven by which humankind is to live. These are the laws that non-Jews are supposed to follow in order to live in a moral and just manner. (Jews, have other obligations as well.) The laws are known as the Noahide laws, after Noah, the man who built the ark. The numeration of the laws appears in the Tosefta Sandedrin 9:4 and in the Talmud 58 a/b. The first law is: Not to murder. After the Great Flood with its devastation of human life, the earths people are admonished that all flesh is created in the Divine Image. The second law deals with stealing. People were not to take things that were not theirs to possess. Law number three has to do with idolatry. As there is only one Creator, so was that one Creator or God the one to be worshipped. The fourth law concerned itself with sexual morality. Incest and adultery were forbidden acts. At the end of the Noah story, Noah gets drunk and uncovers himself in his tent. (Gen. 9:21) There has been much speculation as to what was going on here and many scholars believe sexual impropriety had occurred in some form. Law number five has to do with the consumption of food. After the Flood, humans are allowed to eat meat. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were vegetarians. In a humorous play I wrote about the famous couple, I have Eve asking Adam what there was to do in the Garden. Adam tells Eve that they could grab a veggie burger and then go meet all the animals! Here, in this law, humans are to slaughter animals in a humane way, not tear a limb from a living animal nor consume its life source, blood. Incidentally, the rules of keeping kosher derive partially from this verse. The sixth law is a prohibition against blaspheming the name of God. It would make sense that after all was said and done, God was to be revered and the Divine name was to be kept holy. The seventh law is a positive one. It required humankind to establish laws and courts of justice. How was humanity and civilization to continue if not within a code of law? If humanity follows these Noahide rules, then the righteous of all nations will have a share in the world to come (be saved). This is a concept that is considered basic and is accepted by all branches of Judaism. God has rachmoness, compassion; on the creatures he/she has created according to Jewish belief and loves all people. The next time you see one of the glorious rainbows we have here in Florida, keep in mind Gods promise to humankind: that of brighter days to come and peace to all the inhabitants of the world.Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com The Noahide Laws: After the flood is interesting JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES Whether youre looking to add something sweet to salads, baked goods or seasonal dishes, cran berries pack a lot of flavor, as well as important nutrients and antioxidants, and can be added to a variety of dishes, from muffins and cookies to salads and even quesadillas.

mans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you will have to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would need to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction! Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is worse: a bomb in your underwear, or, your underwear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated my thinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world, (John 16:33 KJV). Whatever our tribulations might be, we can rest unabashed in the finished work of Jesus Christ.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Nominations from the floor can be made at the general meeting on Nov. 9. So that you know what duties and time commitments are involved, here is a rundown of what it is directors do. Directors meet with the neighborhood representatives on the first Monday of the month for about 1 hours, followed by the directors workshop. Every second Wednesday of the month is the ORHA general meeting that typically lasts about 1 hours. Once every 8 weeks, each director serves as the director-on-duty for a week. This means you may be asked by different clubs to open the sound room and the kitchen at the two main facilities and be sure the supplies for coffee, plastic bags, etc are available for functions. There is nothing very difficult about any of this but you have the opportunity to serve your community and learn a lot about how this place we call home works.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the party by Little Theatre for Peg and Arn Studer, narrated by Anna Boodee.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, Oct. 25, we played our favorite Halloween game, the dreaded Pumpkin Ball. Each team had a designated ball and each woman was assigned certain holes that she would play with that ball. Only the net score of that ball counted for the team score. This put a lot of pressure on the player when she had the ball!! The winning teams who best handled the pressure were: First Place Elsa Berbig, Janet Tully and Ginger Drake; Second Place Roseann Lavacca, Lynn Houghton, Sheila Adams and Inge Szabo. Jan Tennant was closest to the pin on hole #16.Royal Oaks Lady NinersThe Lady Niners welcome back Sheila Weckstein! Throw Out Worst Hole was the game on Oct. 27. In Flight A, Rae Stover was the winner, and Salita Timmermeyer and B.J. Lassiter tied for second place. In Flight B, Eleanor Cerlenko was the winner, with Joan Scholl second and Joyce Madill third. Salita Timmermeyer won the closest to the pin contest on hole #3. 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. Royal Oaks Mens GolfOn Oct. 28 the mens group held its annual Oktoberfest Tournament.

The day started out cloudy with a little rain falling, but that stopped quickly, and the rest of the game was played under cloudy and cool conditions.

Crystal River Power Squadron announces the scheduling of Americas Boating Course (ABC), a basic boating safety and familiarization class for the public. ABC includes two four hour sessions conducted on two consecutive Saturdays after which students are eligible for the Florida Safe Boating ID Card (required for some boaters). This class is valuable for those who are new to boating, as well as those experienced boaters who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills. ABC is equally beneficial to the boat operator who is new to Florida or to Nature Coast waterways. As the Squadron says, Boating can be fun and safe. Let us show you how. The course is two fourhour sessions. The first session will be on Saturday, Nov. 12 and the second on Saturday, Nov. 19. The time is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. It will be held at the Crystal River Power Squadron Education Building, 845 N.E. 3rd Ave., Crystal River. Cost is $35 to cover the cost of materials. ABC covers the basics of safe boating, including types of boats, basic boat handling, required equipment, anchoring, refueling, navigation rules and regulations, trailering, use of the marine radio, emergencies and adverse conditions, personal watercraft (Jet Ski) safety, and some useful knots. A 50-question exam is administered at the conclusion of the course and those passing with a score of at least 80 percent will be awarded a certificate that can be submitted to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for the Safe Boater's ID Card required of boat operators born after January 1, 1988. This course also satisfies the requirement for a safe boating course after having received a citation in the State of Florida and may also earn you a discount on your boat insurance Bonus: Free six-month membership in the United States Power Squadrons upon successful completion of the course. For further information contact, Gary Wright: 352628-4385, or email: crpsboating@tampabay.rr.com or Bob Purcell: 352-7957312, or email: purceus@yahoo.comFriday, November 4, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Power Squadron schedules boating classes Check out our website www.smcitizen.com PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELHonor Flight arrivalAs the plane was landing many people in the crowd waved flags and cheered the arriving veterans.

But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together...even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. The action-packed, modern day vampire love story Twilight, the first in the series, was released in theaters on Nov. 21, 2008, to a blockbuster reception. The second installment of the franchise, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, was released Nov. 20, 2009, and the third installment, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was released June 30, 2010. In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, Bella and Edward, plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage and honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black. This film begins the conclusion of this blockbuster film series. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Marion Theatre box office or at fandango.com.

Crystal River Power Squadron announces the scheduling of Americas Boating Course (ABC), a basic boating safety and familiarization class for the public. ABC includes two four hour sessions conducted on two consecutive Saturdays after which students are eligible for the Florida Safe Boating ID Card (required for some boaters). This class is valuable for those who are new to boating, as well as those experienced boaters who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills. ABC is equally beneficial to the boat operator who is new to Florida or to Nature Coast waterways. As the Squadron says, Boating can be fun and safe. Let us show you how. The course is two fourhour sessions. The first session will be on Saturday, Nov. 12 and the second on Saturday, Nov. 19. The time is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. It will be held at the Crystal River Power Squadron Education Building, 845 N.E. 3rd Ave., Crystal River. Cost is $35 to cover the cost of materials. ABC covers the basics of safe boating, including types of boats, basic boat handling, required equipment, anchoring, refueling, navigation rules and regulations, trailering, use of the marine radio, emergencies and adverse conditions, personal watercraft (Jet Ski) safety, and some useful knots. A 50-question exam is administered at the conclusion of the course and those passing with a score of at least 80 percent will be awarded a certificate that can be submitted to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for the Safe Boater's ID Card required of boat operators born after January 1, 1988. This course also satisfies the requirement for a safe boating course after having received a citation in the State of Florida and may also earn you a discount on your boat insurance Bonus: Free six-month membership in the United States Power Squadrons upon successful completion of the course. For further information contact, Gary Wright: 352628-4385, or email: crpsboating@tampabay.rr.com or Bob Purcell: 352-7957312, or email: purceus@yahoo.comFriday, November 4, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Power Squadron schedules boating classes Check out our website www.smcitizen.com PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELHonor Flight arrivalAs the plane was landing many people in the crowd waved flags and cheered the arriving veterans.

But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together...even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. The action-packed, modern day vampire love story Twilight, the first in the series, was released in theaters on Nov. 21, 2008, to a blockbuster reception. The second installment of the franchise, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, was released Nov. 20, 2009, and the third installment, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was released June 30, 2010. In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, Bella and Edward, plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage and honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black. This film begins the conclusion of this blockbuster film series. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Marion Theatre box office or at fandango.com.

The winning teams who best handled the pressure were: First Place Elsa Berbig, Janet Tully and Ginger Drake; Second Place Roseann Lavacca, Lynn Houghton, Sheila Adams and Inge Szabo. Jan Tennant was closest to the pin on hole #16.Royal Oaks Lady NinersThe Lady Niners welcome back Sheila Weckstein! Throw Out Worst Hole was the game on Oct. 27.

mans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you will have to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would need to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction! Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is worse: a bomb in your underwear, or, your underwear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated my thinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world, (John 16:33 KJV). Whatever our tribulations might be, we can rest unabashed in the finished work of Jesus Christ.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

At this time of the year, Jews all over the world read the story of Noah and the Ark. In this well-known tale, Noah, a righteous man in his time, builds an ark to hold all the species of earth because he has been told by God that God will destroy the earth because of humankinds wickedness. Noah and his family are saved from destruction and at the end of the story, the Almighty makes a covenant with Noah that never again would a global flood destroy the world; the sign of this solemn oath was the rainbow in the sky. A familiar segment found in the Hebrew Bible, it also is studied by Christians and Muslims. While the tale is intriguing and teaches many lessons, it is what happens after the Flood, which is most interesting. God gives human beings three laws, which the rabbis have increased to seven by which humankind is to live. These are the laws that non-Jews are supposed to follow in order to live in a moral and just manner. (Jews, have other obligations as well.) The laws are known as the Noahide laws, after Noah, the man who built the ark. The numeration of the laws appears in the Tosefta Sandedrin 9:4 and in the Talmud 58 a/b. The first law is: Not to murder. After the Great Flood with its devastation of human life, the earths people are admonished that all flesh is created in the Divine Image. The second law deals with stealing. People were not to take things that were not theirs to possess. Law number three has to do with idolatry. As there is only one Creator, so was that one Creator or God the one to be worshipped. The fourth law concerned itself with sexual morality. Incest and adultery were forbidden acts. At the end of the Noah story, Noah gets drunk and uncovers himself in his tent. (Gen. 9:21) There has been much speculation as to what was going on here and many scholars believe sexual impropriety had occurred in some form. Law number five has to do with the consumption of food. After the Flood, humans are allowed to eat meat. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were vegetarians. In a humorous play I wrote about the famous couple, I have Eve asking Adam what there was to do in the Garden. Adam tells Eve that they could grab a veggie burger and then go meet all the animals! Here, in this law, humans are to slaughter animals in a humane way, not tear a limb from a living animal nor consume its life source, blood. Incidentally, the rules of keeping kosher derive partially from this verse. The sixth law is a prohibition against blaspheming the name of God. It would make sense that after all was said and done, God was to be revered and the Divine name was to be kept holy. The seventh law is a positive one. It required humankind to establish laws and courts of justice. How was humanity and civilization to continue if not within a code of law? If humanity follows these Noahide rules, then the righteous of all nations will have a share in the world to come (be saved). This is a concept that is considered basic and is accepted by all branches of Judaism. God has rachmoness, compassion; on the creatures he/she has created according to Jewish belief and loves all people. The next time you see one of the glorious rainbows we have here in Florida, keep in mind Gods promise to humankind: that of brighter days to come and peace to all the inhabitants of the world.Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com The Noahide Laws: After the flood is interesting JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES Whether youre looking to add something sweet to salads, baked goods or seasonal dishes, cran berries pack a lot of flavor, as well as important nutrients and antioxidants, and can be added to a variety of dishes, from muffins and cookies to salads and even quesadillas.

Martha Vaughn Chairperson Co-Owner, Dunnellons Turner House Florist LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Recently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person who designed the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Im thinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I know I need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to remind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have any room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was in I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? Personally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the entire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. However, I can live with some of these inconveniences. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. If there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would be a happy flyer. It has been a while since I flew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of the fees associated with flying these days someone has not come up with the bright idea of charging a fee for everyone to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go through a very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgotten how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to make sure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. Then, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my underwear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, so I had to take that out and put in a tray. Again, I walked through and the buzzer went off. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? My wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and then walked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. At this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could take off. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in the buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other side of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. You have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and then said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont you? With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentleI dont mind flying; airports are the problem OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com majority of Republicans will regard the 2012 election as an existential crossroad for our country, a last chance to change direction before we end up like Greece financially bankrupt, economically moribund, and politically convulsed. In this scenario, just as the Democrats in 2008 nominated a man of the left, Obama, rather than a more centrist candidate, so the GOP will nominate an anti-Obama, a true-blue conservative as committed to a radical swing to the right, just as Obama pushed a radical swing to the left. If the political pendulum swings far enough to the right to produce a 2012 conservative electoral landslide, and then Republicans follow through with bold cuts in federal spending and power, the years 2013 and 2014 will be crucial. If conservative policies revive the economy quickly, then Republicans could hold on to their 2012 gains in the 2014 mid-term elections. If not, or if they step on too many toes, then there could be an anti-Republican backlash for moving too far to the right, just as voters punished Democrats in the 2010 elections for moving too far to the left. If a sizable Republican majority were elected in 2012, would they "roll the dice" and risk political suicide by instituting major reforms? I imagine there is some serious soulsearching going on now. I wonder how many of them are grappling with the dilemma that must confront every officeseeker in a democratic electoral system: Should I do what will get me elected or reelected, even if I know that the policies I support will weaken our country, or should I vote for what I know will help the country, even if it costs me my political career? These next few years will be fascinating.Dr. Mark W.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 4, 2011 The Halloween carnival at the Southwest District Sheriffs Office property Monday provided some happy moments for a lot of children, but in my eyes there was one incident I had that left me feeling a little bit sad and angry at the same time. To be sure, the carnival was great. An awful lot of people volunteered to put on the event, and it seemed this year that the children were much more appreciative of what was going on. There were games and prizes, horses, rescue truck, bomb squad and dancing with a disc jockey, face painting and all those other good things that go with an evening of celebration. At one point I was wandering around looking for cute kids to take a picture of. I saw this young couple with a little girl who seemed mesmerized by what was going on around her. I told the parents who I was and what I was doing, and asked permission to take her picture (as a matter of fact, everyone I asked all evening was very friendly and cooperative). After I took the girls photo, I asked my usual three questions of the parents: Whats her name, how old is she, and what part of town do you live in. One of the answers got my attention. After the name and age, the mother, Francesca Rohn, said, Actually, were from Alaska. The husband immediately added, Im in the military, and were here visiting family. Before I could get another question out, his wife said, Hes being deployed. It turns out that Steven Rohn, 21, has been in the Army for two years and is getting ready to go to Afghanistan. We talked for a couple of minutes, and then parted ways as they headed for another attraction and I looked for more pictures to take. A little while later I got in my car to go home, and I began thinking about that incident. The more I thought about it, the more upset I got. Here was a nice young couple, presumably just starting out, thousands of miles away from home, and this husband and father was about to go even farther as he heads for Afghanistan. I sat there wondering why. If we are so strong militarily, why havent we ended these hostilities by now, so we dont have to send people like this away from their families, leaving this young mother to cope with a 21-monthold daughter. With all the stuff about Khadafy (however you spell it) and about Iraq recently, Afghanistan has kind of been the forgotten war. This chance meeting put a real face on the battle, a face of those headed to that country. It was some time ago that things were supposedly going our way in Afghanistan. Toby Keith was making jokes about the Taliban in their caves and singing about our victories. But while those days have faded, Afghanistan hasnt gone away. We got proof of that right here on the Corridor this Monday. Its too bad President Obama and some of our representatives and senators werent there Monday. It might have been enlightening for them to meet real people who are affected by their actions (or inactions). Lets not forget these young soldiers over there. All of us should wish the best for all of them, and particularly for Scott Rohn.

The Sheriffs Office came out with its annual list of sex predators and sex offenders last week. The booklet lists 648 violators with their photos and home addresses, all of which are public record. Although, fortunately, we didnt recognize anyone I knew, it did make for some interesting reading. The violators are broken down by Zip Code, which makes comparison of the areas quite easy. As an aside, it also shows how ridiculous the Zip Code designations are, with adjacent Zip Code numbers at opposite ends of the county, and two different Zip Codes for the County Jail. That, of course, is a postal service problem. Of the 648 violators, 25 are currently in jail, 16 are women, and the vast majority are white males. Looking at the breakdown by Zip Codes, the ones with more than 30 violators include Citra, Ocklawaha, Belleview, Dunnellon, and the Shores area. There is one northwest area that has a large number, but about half its list includes people in the county jail. Some Zips have only one or two people listed, but that is misleading, because it is mostly the Zip Codes that are shared with another county. Supposedly the list is accurate, but were a little nervous about printing specific addresses of anyone, because we are such a mobile society. There are 15 people listed in the Zip Code serving much of our area, 34481. If you go to http://www.marionso.com/main.php which is the sheriffs website, there are links enabling you to search for the offenders and predators in your area. For the protection of you and your family, you should familiarize yourself with the names and addresses, and pictures, of anyone listed in your familys area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY It could be your neighbor A Halloween visitor from Alaska Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON Special to the CitizenWhoever takes the oath of office as President of the United States in January of 2013 will inherit an economy facing multiple challenges: Undoubtedly, still-escalating federal spending will have the government bumping up against the debt ceiling again. By then, total federal debt will be larger than our GDP Unemployment is likely to remain high. The supply and reliability of our power-generating infrastructure will be stressed and at risk due to President Obamas antienergy policies. Social Security and Medicare will still need to be reformed significantly to address long-term fiscal imbalances. And the economy will encounter new headwinds as the landmines of tax increases with which Obama has salted the economic landscape are detonated. These include new taxes for Obamacare, the scheduled expiration of the Bush tax cuts, and the end of Obamas temporary reduction in Social Security withholding. Obama has shown no indication of modifying his policies or agenda. Presumably, any of the Republican candidates would favor change on these issues (although perhaps not on Social Security and Medicare), but would he or she actually be able to solve these problems, even if there were a veto-proof Republican Congress? The big political question for election year 2012 is: How much change would Republicans want? Would they downsize government as much as Obama upsized it? Will Republicans nominate a safe, moderate candidate (think: Ford, Bush, and Dole)a technocratic tinkerer who accepts the entrenched paradigm of Big Government, and seeks to manage Leviathan better than Democrats would? Or will they opt for an unabashed conservative, a major reformer with a radical vision for smaller government? That question wasnt even conceivable a year ago, but the tectonic plates in the American political landscape may be starting to shift. Whiffs of radical reform are in the air. Herman Cain, who favors a three-step plan to replace the income tax with a national sales tax and the privatization of Social Security, has risen in the polls since his impressive victory in the Sept. 24 Florida straw poll. On Sept. 27, Newt Gingrich unveiled his st Century Contract With America, proposing to replace such venerable bureaucracies as the National Labor Relations Board and the Environmental Protection Agency. In doing so, Gingrich dared to challenge two of the most powerful Democratic special interest groups in America, environmentalists and labor unions (the strangest political bedfellows in our country, since hardcore greens would eliminate jobs in industry if they could). It is possible that the bold proposals of Cain and Gingrich are just so much noise red meat offered by dark horse candidates designed to excite passionate conservatives, but that are anathema to Republicans who believe that a more centrist nominee would be more electable? Another possibility is that a READER OPINIONS INVITED Looking ahead to 2012, 2013 and 2014 PLEASESEEGUEST, PAGE9 We deserved it and finally got a beautiful cool down with our weather. Hurricane season is almost over and Ocala has been spared once again. Is this a great place to live or what?Feature of the monthThe feature this month is Delores and Bill Pecor. Bill Pecor was born in Cornish, N.H., and had two brothers and one sister. The family moved to Manchester, Conn., where Bill and his siblings attended East Hartford elementary and high schools. After high school Bill worked at East Hartford housing (for veterans). He later worked at Brainard Field (a small military airport). He remained there for 32 years. He met Delores Picard in 1955. Delores was born in North Grosvenardale, Conn., and went to St. Joseph elementary and high schools. After graduation she went to work at a textile company that made Arrow shirts. The mill closed and Delores moved with her aunt and uncle to East Hartford and got a job at Aetna Insurance Company when she met Bill in 1955 and they married in 1956 (she didnt have to change her initials). They had three children, David born in 1958, Michele in 1962 and William in 1966. Later came four grandchildren. David resides in Davenport, Florida, Michele in Massachusetts, and William in Connecticut. Delores worked at the University of Connecticut, for 11 years. Bill and Delores retired to Ocala in 1990 and bought a home in Spruce Creek North. Bill does excellent woodworking and oil paints beautifully. He plays pool (billiards) and occasionally likes to golf (when he has the time). He and Delores bowled for many years and they love to travel. Delores leads water exercise (in the summer) one day a week and indoor exercise one day a week. She belongs to the SCN Quilt club, loves to read, cook and play the piano. They both love gardening and plant many organic vegetables. They enjoy their morning walks. They belong to Queen of Peace church where Delores serves as a sacristan. All the way from Connecticut to Ocala, this couple enjoys the good life in Spruce Creek North.Pancake BreakfastThe third SCN pancake breakfast of the new season will be Nov. 26 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. There will be sausages, French toast, pancakes, orange juice, coffee or tea, all for $3 per person.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Madeleine Hanna has always loved reading. Thats why shes an English Major at Brown University. But its 1982 and Brown is a hotbed of postmodernism which means her beloved novels are out and Lacan and Derrida are in. Madeleines favorites Jane Austen and Henry James have been relegated to the shadow land of literary history. But her affection for the marriageplot novels, those books usually ending in weddings, remains solid. Madeleine felt safe in a nineteenth-century novel. There were going to be people in it. Something was going to happen to them in a place resembling the world. Even so, not wanting to be labeled a 19th-century nerd trapped in another time, she holds her nose and studies deconstruction and takes a course in semiotics. It is here that she meets the love of her life, a moody science major named Leonard. In a clever twist on Jane Austen romances, the author brings to The Marriage Plot his own wry commentary on love triangles and contemporary marriage. When the novel opens, its Madeleines graduation day. Shes hung over, still smarting from an argument with her friend Mitchell Grammaticus and dreading breakfast with her rich, very proper parents. On this gloomy spring day the future is iffy at best for Madeleine and her fellow graduates. The recession is deep; jobs are scarce; and relationships are indeterminate. She and boyfriend Leonard have temporarily broken up. He is a hopeless manic depressive, scorned by her mother and married sister Alwyn. In a throwback to an Austen novel they both want her to hold out for someone more in keeping with her station in life, not play nursemaid to a poor, unemployed misfit. As Leonard and Madeleine sort out their differences, the lovesick, spurned Mitchell embarks on a religious odyssey. This is a quirky, unconventional, unsentimental love story but a love story nevertheless as these three young people grope painfully, glacially toward individual resolutions Quirky love story BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Book sale for Blind CenterA book sale will take place Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Florida Center for the Blind, 7634 S.W. 60th Ave., Ocala.

BOSTON -U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio changes the landscape in Florida when added to the Republican ticket, according to a Suffolk University/7NEWS (WSVN-Miami) poll of registered voters in Florida. Assuming the selection of Rubio in the vice president spot, the Republican presidential nominee would secure 46 percent to President Barack Obamas 41 percent, with 2 percent voting for an independent candidate and 12 percent undecided. The poll also showed Mitt Romney (25 percent) running neckand-neck with Herman Cain (24 percent) among registered Republicans in Florida. Marco Rubio secures Florida which, along with Ohio, is one of the two most important swing states to win, said David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Bostons Suffolk University. He also adds potential strength in states like New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, and Nevada, which have high Hispanic populations. Without Rubio in the mix, Obama tied Mitt Romney at 42 percent, led Herman Cain 42 percent to 39 percent, led Rick Perry 46 percent to 34 percent, led Ron Paul 44 percent to 32 percent, and led Newt Gingrich 45 percent to 38 percent. Rubios significant impact was measured among Hispanic voters and younger voters. For example, with Rubio included as vice president, the Republican ticket wins 53 percent to 33 percent among Hispanic voters and 47 percent to 40 percent among younger voters ages 18-44, where Rubio has broad appeal. While Obama struggles in the low 40 percent range on job performance and head-to-head matchups with Romney and Cain, he rockets to 50 percent when Hillary Clinton is added to the Democratic ticket. When asked which ticket voters would support assuming a Democratic ticket of Obama-Clinton or a Republican ticket, 50 percent chose Obama-Clinton; 41 percent would vote Republican; 2 percent would select an independent candidate; and 6 percent were undecided. Its ironic that in the 2008 Democratic Primary, Barack Obama had to overthrow Clinton and the more traditional factions of the Democratic Party to win the nomination, said Paleologos. Now Clinton has become the quantifiable lifeboat that could save a sinking Democratic ticket in 2012. The Suffolk University Political Research Center tracked Clintons popularity during midterm-election-cycle polling in October 2010, when her favorability was running 10to-14 points higher than Obamas in key states like Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Today in Florida, Clintons 64 percent favorable rating is 19 points higher than Obamas 45 percent. Every extra percentage point advantage could mean major color changes on the electoral map, despite Hillary Clintons repeated refusals, said Paleologos. On the question of loyalty, Obama may have to grapple with his loyalty to his running mate Joe Biden versus his loyalty to the Democratic Party by fielding the strongest ticket possible. In the marquee matchup of an Obama-Clinton ticket versus a GOP ticket with Rubio as vice president, Obama led 46 percent to 43 percent, with 10 per-Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Jasmine Plaza 352-401-0001 Jasmine Plaza 352-401-0001 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 Ocala, Florida 34476 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 Ocala, Florida 34476 STORE HOURS: TUES.-FRI. 10-5 SAT. 10-2 STORE HOURS: TUES.-FRI. 10-5 SAT. 10-2 Readers Choice Winner Jewelry Store 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 www.jandjjewelersocala.com Affordable New & Estate Jewelry 0009PQD All repairs done on premises.

Hope Dawn Carrato, 45, of Southwest 158th Lane, Florida Highlands, was at her home when deputies arrived. The victim said a verbal argument had broken out and that Carrato grabbed a knife and held it up to his neck. He told deputies, according to the report, that he was scared and slapped Carratos hand away from his neck area and she then put the knife away. Carrato said she had put the knife to his neck, but it was only a Halloween joke. According to the report, both parties had been drinking. Carrato was arrested and taken to jail. A local woman was given a notice to appear for retail petit theft after an incident at Bealls. Megan Anne Lagrasta, 18, of Southwest 46th Court, allegedly took nine items of clothing.

Living in the middle of horse country makes it hard for us to realize that Floridas cattle industry is one of the 15 largest in the United States. In 1521 Ponce de Leon brought horses and cattle to Florida, making it the oldest cattle raising state in the nation. In addition to ranches, diary farms throughout Florida bring some stories to this weeks Pun Alley.Sonnys placeAt the turn of the century a cattle baron bought his three boys a ranch near Arcadia to raise cattle. He named it Focus because thats where the sons raise meat. They kept track of the cows and bulls on a catalyst.Off the cuffCowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe. Pair of cufflinks, said Fess. But I aint got no use for them. I cant even find anyplace to get my wrists pierced. Real dudeThe lady had come to a dude ranch and was all ready to take her first horseback ride. She said to the cowboy, Can you get me a nice gentle pony? Shore, said the cowboy. What kind of saddle do you want, English or western? Whats the difference? asked the lady. The western saddle has a horn on it, said the cowboy. If the traffic is so thick here that I need a horn on my saddle, I dont believe I want to ride. RomanticThe sun was dropping behind the horizon. The moon was beginning to rise. All was quiet on the farm, and the gentle breeze hinted at romance. The farm boy and the pretty girl from the next farm strolled hand in hand through the pasture. They stopped to watch the calf and its mother rubbing noses. Id like to be doing that, said the farmer boy wistfully.

Food is a traditional part of holiday festivities, but enjoying it excessively can quickly lead to weight gain, as well as unhealthy changes in blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol. But before you go cold turkey this Thanksgiving or toss your Christmas cookie recipes, read on for tips to enjoy the seasons festive fare without the unhealthy consequences. The challenge to enjoying healthy holiday food is to eat reasonable servings of healthier versions of your favorite dishes. Portion control can make a big difference in preventing those insidious extra pounds and adapting recipes to include healthy ingredients reduces calorie intake and increases nutrient content. Adapt the recipes of your favorite dishes by eliminating or reducing unhealthy ingredients and adding healthier ingredients. Keep in mind, its easier to adjust ingredients such as butter, sugar and salt in cooked dishes and harder to adjust them in baked goods. These ingredients play a more vital role in baked goods (e.g. salt and sugar in yeast breads), and it may be easier to just use a pre-modified and pretested recipe. 1. Reduce fat by using non-fat or low-fat dairy products. For example, use nonor low-fat milk and sour cream, light butter or margarine, nonor low-fat Greek or regular yogurt and reduced fat cheeses. 2. Slightly reducing sugar has little or no effect on the final product in cooked (not baked) sweetened dishes such as sweet potato casserole. Dont try to reduce sugar in baking applications; sugar imparts tenderness, moisture and browning in these foods and is vital in yeast breads. 3. Reduce or eliminate salt in almost all recipes. Remember that processed foods contain more sodium, so choose natural foods whenever possible. Dont reduce salt in yeast breads; without salt, the dough will rise too quickly, affecting the shape and flavor. 4. Add vegetables to almost any entre, side dish, soup or salad. Stuffing is the perfect food for adding vegetables; summer squash, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, onions and celery add flavor and moisture and reduce calories per serving. 5. Add fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin, carrots or zucchini to quick-bread batters. Try stewed fruit with meat and poultry and dried fruit pilaf, orange sections and dried cranberries with salads. Plain fruits and vegetables are a real calorie bargain at 60 and 25 calories per half-cup serving, respectively. 6. Use the natural sugars of fruit to sweeten nonbaked foods. For example, remake your sweet potato casserole by using pineapple, sliced apples and raisins instead of syrup, brown sugar, butter and marshmallows.Have questions?

Plain fruits and vegetables are a real calorie bargain at 60 and 25 calories per half-cup serving, respectively. 6. Use the natural sugars of fruit to sweeten nonbaked foods. For example, remake your sweet potato casserole by using pineapple, sliced apples and raisins instead of syrup, brown sugar, butter and marshmallows. Have questions?

BOSTON -U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio changes the landscape in Florida when added to the Republican ticket, according to a Suffolk University/7NEWS (WSVN-Miami) poll of registered voters in Florida. Assuming the selection of Rubio in the vice president spot, the Republican presidential nominee would secure 46 percent to President Barack Obamas 41 percent, with 2 percent voting for an independent candidate and 12 percent undecided. The poll also showed Mitt Romney (25 percent) running neckand-neck with Herman Cain (24 percent) among registered Republicans in Florida. Marco Rubio secures Florida which, along with Ohio, is one of the two most important swing states to win, said David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Bostons Suffolk University. He also adds potential strength in states like New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, and Nevada, which have high Hispanic populations. Without Rubio in the mix, Obama tied Mitt Romney at 42 percent, led Herman Cain 42 percent to 39 percent, led Rick Perry 46 percent to 34 percent, led Ron Paul 44 percent to 32 percent, and led Newt Gingrich 45 percent to 38 percent. Rubios significant impact was measured among Hispanic voters and younger voters. For example, with Rubio included as vice president, the Republican ticket wins 53 percent to 33 percent among Hispanic voters and 47 percent to 40 percent among younger voters ages 18-44, where Rubio has broad appeal. While Obama struggles in the low 40 percent range on job performance and head-to-head matchups with Romney and Cain, he rockets to 50 percent when Hillary Clinton is added to the Democratic ticket. When asked which ticket voters would support assuming a Democratic ticket of Obama-Clinton or a Republican ticket, 50 percent chose Obama-Clinton; 41 percent would vote Republican; 2 percent would select an independent candidate; and 6 percent were undecided. Its ironic that in the 2008 Democratic Primary, Barack Obama had to overthrow Clinton and the more traditional factions of the Democratic Party to win the nomination, said Paleologos. Now Clinton has become the quantifiable lifeboat that could save a sinking Democratic ticket in 2012. The Suffolk University Political Research Center tracked Clintons popularity during midterm-election-cycle polling in October 2010, when her favorability was running 10to-14 points higher than Obamas in key states like Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Today in Florida, Clintons 64 percent favorable rating is 19 points higher than Obamas 45 percent. Every extra percentage point advantage could mean major color changes on the electoral map, despite Hillary Clintons repeated refusals, said Paleologos. On the question of loyalty, Obama may have to grapple with his loyalty to his running mate Joe Biden versus his loyalty to the Democratic Party by fielding the strongest ticket possible. In the marquee matchup of an Obama-Clinton ticket versus a GOP ticket with Rubio as vice president, Obama led 46 percent to 43 percent, with 10 per-Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com J a s m i n e P l a z a 3 5 2 4 0 1 0 0 0 1 Jasmine Plaza 352-401-0001 6 1 6 0 S W S R 2 0 0 U n i t 1 0 4 O c a l a F l o r i d a 3 4 4 7 6 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 Ocala, Florida 34476 S T O R E H O U R S : T U E S F R I 1 0 5 S A T 1 0 2 STORE HOURS: TUES.-FRI. 10-5 SAT. 10-2 Readers Choice Winner Jewelry Store 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 www.jandjjewelersocala.com Affordable New & Estate Jewelry 0009PQD A l l r e p a i r s d o n e o n p r e m i s e s A l l r e p a i r s d o n e o n p r e m i s e s All repairs done on premises.

Hope Dawn Carrato, 45, of Southwest 158th Lane, Florida Highlands, was at her home when deputies arrived. The victim said a verbal argument had broken out and that Carrato grabbed a knife and held it up to his neck. He told deputies, according to the report, that he was scared and slapped Carratos hand away from his neck area and she then put the knife away. Carrato said she had put the knife to his neck, but it was only a Halloween joke. According to the report, both parties had been drinking. Carrato was arrested and taken to jail. A local woman was given a notice to appear for retail petit theft after an incident at Bealls. Megan Anne Lagrasta, 18, of Southwest 46th Court, allegedly took nine items of clothing.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com M adeleine Hanna has always loved reading. Thats why shes an English Major at Brown University. But its 1982 and Brown is a hotbed of postmodernism which means her beloved novels are out and Lacan and Derrida are in. Madeleines favorites Jane Austen and Henry James have been relegated to the shadow land of literary history. But her affection for the marriageplot novels, those books usually ending in weddings, remains solid. Madeleine felt safe in a nineteenth-century novel. There were going to be people in it. Something was going to happen to them in a place resembling the world. Even so, not wanting to be labeled a 19th-century nerd trapped in another time, she holds her nose and studies deconstruction and takes a course in semiotics. It is here that she meets the love of her life, a moody science major named Leonard. In a clever twist on Jane Austen romances, the author brings to The Marriage Plot his own wry commentary on love triangles and contemporary marriage. When the novel opens, its Madeleines graduation day. Shes hung over, still smarting from an argument with her friend Mitchell Grammaticus and dreading breakfast with her rich, very proper parents. On this gloomy spring day the future is iffy at best for Madeleine and her fellow graduates. The recession is deep; jobs are scarce; and relationships are indeterminate. She and boyfriend Leonard have temporarily broken up. He is a hopeless manic depressive, scorned by her mother and married sister Alwyn. In a throwback to an Austen novel they both want her to hold out for someone more in keeping with her station in life, not play nursemaid to a poor, unemployed misfit. As Leonard and Madeleine sort out their differences, the lovesick, spurned Mitchell embarks on a religious odyssey. This is a quirky, unconventional, unsentimental love story but a love story nevertheless as these three young people grope painfully, glacially toward individual resolutions Quirky love story B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Book sale for Blind Center A book sale will take place Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Florida Center for the Blind, 7634 S.W. 60th Ave., Ocala.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 T he Halloween carnival at the Southwest District Sheriffs Office property Monday provided some happy moments for a lot of children, but in my eyes there was one incident I had that left me feeling a little bit sad and angry at the same time. To be sure, the carnival was great. An awful lot of people volunteered to put on the event, and it seemed this year that the children were much more appreciative of what was going on. There were games and prizes, horses, rescue truck, bomb squad and dancing with a disc jockey, face painting and all those other good things that go with an evening of celebration. At one point I was wandering around looking for cute kids to take a picture of. I saw this young couple with a little girl who seemed mesmerized by what was going on around her. I told the parents who I was and what I was doing, and asked permission to take her picture (as a matter of fact, everyone I asked all evening was very friendly and cooperative). After I took the girls photo, I asked my usual three questions of the parents: Whats her name, how old is she, and what part of town do you live in. One of the answers got my attention. After the name and age, the mother, Francesca Rohn, said, Actually, were from Alaska. The husband immediately added, Im in the military, and were here visiting family. Before I could get another question out, his wife said, Hes being deployed. It turns out that Steven Rohn, 21, has been in the Army for two years and is getting ready to go to Afghanistan. We talked for a couple of minutes, and then parted ways as they headed for another attraction and I looked for more pictures to take. A little while later I got in my car to go home, and I began thinking about that incident. The more I thought about it, the more upset I got. Here was a nice young couple, presumably just starting out, thousands of miles away from home, and this husband and father was about to go even farther as he heads for Afghanistan. I sat there wondering why. If we are so strong militarily, why havent we ended these hostilities by now, so we dont have to send people like this away from their families, leaving this young mother to cope with a 21-monthold daughter. With all the stuff about Khadafy (however you spell it) and about Iraq recently, Afghanistan has kind of been the forgotten war. This chance meeting put a real face on the battle, a face of those headed to that country. It was some time ago that things were supposedly going our way in Afghanistan. Toby Keith was making jokes about the Taliban in their caves and singing about our victories. But while those days have faded, Afghanistan hasnt gone away. We got proof of that right here on the Corridor this Monday. Its too bad President Obama and some of our representatives and senators werent there Monday. It might have been enlightening for them to meet real people who are affected by their actions (or inactions). Lets not forget these young soldiers over there. All of us should wish the best for all of them, and particularly for Scott Rohn. We should adopt him as one of ours and hope that in a couple of years hell be back at the carnival treating Addison to another Halloween. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T he Sheriffs Office came out with its annual list of sex predators and sex offenders last week. The booklet lists 648 violators with their photos and home addresses, all of which are public record. Although, fortunately, we didnt recognize anyone I knew, it did make for some interesting reading. The violators are broken down by Zip Code, which makes comparison of the areas quite easy. As an aside, it also shows how ridiculous the Zip Code designations are, with adjacent Zip Code numbers at opposite ends of the county, and two different Zip Codes for the County Jail. That, of course, is a postal service problem. Of the 648 violators, 25 are currently in jail, 16 are women, and the vast majority are white males. Looking at the breakdown by Zip Codes, the ones with more than 30 violators include Citra, Ocklawaha, Belleview, Dunnellon, and the Shores area. There is one northwest area that has a large number, but about half its list includes people in the county jail. Some Zips have only one or two people listed, but that is misleading, because it is mostly the Zip Codes that are shared with another county. Supposedly the list is accurate, but were a little nervous about printing specific addresses of anyone, because we are such a mobile society. There are 15 people listed in the Zip Code serving much of our area, 34481. If you go to http://www.marionso.com/main.php which is the sheriffs website, there are links enabling you to search for the offenders and predators in your area. For the protection of you and your family, you should familiarize yourself with the names and addresses, and pictures, of anyone listed in your familys area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY It could be your neighbor A Halloween visitor from Alaska Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON Special to the Citizen W hoever takes the oath of office as President of the United States in January of 2013 will inherit an economy facing multiple challenges: Undoubtedly, still-escalating federal spending will have the government bumping up against the debt ceiling again. By then, total federal debt will be larger than our GDP Unemployment is likely to remain high. The supply and reliability of our power-generating infrastructure will be stressed and at risk due to President Obamas antienergy policies. Social Security and Medicare will still need to be reformed significantly to address long-term fiscal imbalances. And the economy will encounter new headwinds as the landmines of tax increases with which Obama has salted the economic landscape are detonated. These include new taxes for Obamacare, the scheduled expiration of the Bush tax cuts, and the end of Obamas temporary reduction in Social Security withholding. Obama has shown no indication of modifying his policies or agenda. Presumably, any of the Republican candidates would favor change on these issues (although perhaps not on Social Security and Medicare), but would he or she actually be able to solve these problems, even if there were a veto-proof Republican Congress? The big political question for election year 2012 is: How much change would Republicans want? Would they downsize government as much as Obama upsized it? Will Republicans nominate a safe, moderate candidate (think: Ford, Bush, and Dole)a technocratic tinkerer who accepts the entrenched paradigm of Big Government, and seeks to manage Leviathan better than Democrats would? Or will they opt for an unabashed conservative, a major reformer with a radical vision for smaller government? That question wasnt even conceivable a year ago, but the tectonic plates in the American political landscape may be starting to shift. Whiffs of radical reform are in the air. Herman Cain, who favors a three-step plan to replace the income tax with a national sales tax and the privatization of Social Security, has risen in the polls since his impressive victory in the Sept. 24 Florida straw poll. On Sept. 27, Newt Gingrich unveiled his st Century Contract With America, proposing to replace such venerable bureaucracies as the National Labor Relations Board and the Environmental Protection Agency. In doing so, Gingrich dared to challenge two of the most powerful Democratic special interest groups in America, environmentalists and labor unions (the strangest political bedfellows in our country, since hardcore greens would eliminate jobs in industry if they could). It is possible that the bold proposals of Cain and Gingrich are just so much noise red meat offered by dark horse candidates designed to excite passionate conservatives, but that are anathema to Republicans who believe that a more centrist nominee would be more electable? Another possibility is that a READER OPINIONS INVITED Looking ahead to 2012, 2013 and 2014 PLEASESEEGUEST PAGE9 W e deserved it and finally got a beautiful cool down with our weather. Hurricane season is almost over and Ocala has been spared once again. Is this a great place to live or what? Feature of the month The feature this month is Delores and Bill Pecor. Bill Pecor was born in Cornish, N.H., and had two brothers and one sister. The family moved to Manchester, Conn., where Bill and his siblings attended East Hartford elementary and high schools. After high school Bill worked at East Hartford housing (for veterans). He later worked at Brainard Field (a small military airport). He remained there for 32 years. He met Delores Picard in 1955. Delores was born in North Grosvenardale, Conn., and went to St. Joseph elementary and high schools. After graduation she went to work at a textile company that made Arrow shirts. The mill closed and Delores moved with her aunt and uncle to East Hartford and got a job at Aetna Insurance Company when she met Bill in 1955 and they married in 1956 (she didnt have to change her initials). They had three children, David born in 1958, Michele in 1962 and William in 1966. Later came four grandchildren. David resides in Davenport, Florida, Michele in Massachusetts, and William in Connecticut. Delores worked at the University of Connecticut, for 11 years. Bill and Delores retired to Ocala in 1990 and bought a home in Spruce Creek North. Bill does excellent woodworking and oil paints beautifully. He plays pool (billiards) and occasionally likes to golf (when he has the time). He and Delores bowled for many years and they love to travel. Delores leads water exercise (in the summer) one day a week and indoor exercise one day a week. She belongs to the SCN Quilt club, loves to read, cook and play the piano. They both love gardening and plant many organic vegetables. They enjoy their morning walks. They belong to Queen of Peace church where Delores serves as a sacristan. All the way from Connecticut to Ocala, this couple enjoys the good life in Spruce Creek North.Pancake BreakfastThe third SCN pancake breakfast of the new season will be Nov. 26 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. There will be sausages, French toast, pancakes, orange juice, coffee or tea, all for $3 per person.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com majority of Republicans will regard the 2012 election as an existential crossroad for our country, a last chance to change direction before we end up like Greece financially bankrupt, economically moribund, and politically convulsed. In this scenario, just as the Democrats in 2008 nominated a man of the left, Obama, rather than a more centrist candidate, so the GOP will nominate an anti-Obama, a true-blue conservative as committed to a radical swing to the right, just as Obama pushed a radical swing to the left. If the political pendulum swings far enough to the right to produce a 2012 conservative electoral landslide, and then Republicans follow through with bold cuts in federal spending and power, the years 2013 and 2014 will be crucial. If conservative policies revive the economy quickly, then Republicans could hold on to their 2012 gains in the 2014 mid-term elections. If not, or if they step on too many toes, then there could be an anti-Republican backlash for moving too far to the right, just as voters punished Democrats in the 2010 elections for moving too far to the left. If a sizable Republican majority were elected in 2012, would they "roll the dice" and risk political suicide by instituting major reforms? I imagine there is some serious soulsearching going on now. I wonder how many of them are grappling with the dilemma that must confront every officeseeker in a democratic electoral system: Should I do what will get me elected or reelected, even if I know that the policies I support will weaken our country, or should I vote for what I know will help the country, even if it costs me my political career? These next few years will be fascinating. Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson is an adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.

Martha Vaughn Chairperson Co-Owner, Dunnellons Turner House Florist LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 R ecently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person who designed the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Im thinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I know I need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to remind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have any room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was in I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? Personally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the entire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. However, I can live with some of these inconveniences. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. If there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would be a happy flyer. It has been a while since I flew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of the fees associated with flying these days someone has not come up with the bright idea of charging a fee for everyone to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go through a very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgotten how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to make sure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. Then, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my underwear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, so I had to take that out and put in a tray. Again, I walked through and the buzzer went off. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? My wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and then walked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. At this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could take off. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in the buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other side of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. You have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and then said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont you? With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentleI dont mind flying; airports are the problem O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

A t this time of the year, Jews all over the world read the story of Noah and the Ark. In this well-known tale, Noah, a righteous man in his time, builds an ark to hold all the species of earth because he has been told by God that God will destroy the earth because of humankinds wickedness. Noah and his family are saved from destruction and at the end of the story, the Almighty makes a covenant with Noah that never again would a global flood destroy the world; the sign of this solemn oath was the rainbow in the sky. A familiar segment found in the Hebrew Bible, it also is studied by Christians and Muslims. While the tale is intriguing and teaches many lessons, it is what happens after the Flood, which is most interesting. God gives human beings three laws, which the rabbis have increased to seven by which humankind is to live. These are the laws that non-Jews are supposed to follow in order to live in a moral and just manner. (Jews, have other obligations as well.) The laws are known as the Noahide laws, after Noah, the man who built the ark. The numeration of the laws appears in the Tosefta Sandedrin 9:4 and in the Talmud 58 a/b. The first law is: Not to murder. After the Great Flood with its devastation of human life, the earths people are admonished that all flesh is created in the Divine Image. The second law deals with stealing. People were not to take things that were not theirs to possess. Law number three has to do with idolatry. As there is only one Creator, so was that one Creator or God the one to be worshipped. The fourth law concerned itself with sexual morality. Incest and adultery were forbidden acts. At the end of the Noah story, Noah gets drunk and uncovers himself in his tent. (Gen. 9:21) There has been much speculation as to what was going on here and many scholars believe sexual impropriety had occurred in some form. Law number five has to do with the consumption of food. After the Flood, humans are allowed to eat meat. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were vegetarians. In a humorous play I wrote about the famous couple, I have Eve asking Adam what there was to do in the Garden. Adam tells Eve that they could grab a veggie burger and then go meet all the animals! Here, in this law, humans are to slaughter animals in a humane way, not tear a limb from a living animal nor consume its life source, blood. Incidentally, the rules of keeping kosher derive partially from this verse. The sixth law is a prohibition against blaspheming the name of God. It would make sense that after all was said and done, God was to be revered and the Divine name was to be kept holy. The seventh law is a positive one. It required humankind to establish laws and courts of justice. How was humanity and civilization to continue if not within a code of law? If humanity follows these Noahide rules, then the righteous of all nations will have a share in the world to come (be saved). This is a concept that is considered basic and is accepted by all branches of Judaism. God has rachmoness, compassion; on the creatures he/she has created according to Jewish belief and loves all people. The next time you see one of the glorious rainbows we have here in Florida, keep in mind Gods promise to humankind: that of brighter days to come and peace to all the inhabitants of the world. Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.

mans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you will have to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would need to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction! Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is worse: a bomb in your underwear, or, your underwear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated my thinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world, (John 16:33 KJV). Whatever our tribulations might be, we can rest unabashed in the finished work of Jesus Christ. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Crystal River Power Squadron announces the scheduling of Americas Boating Course (ABC), a basic boating safety and familiarization class for the public. ABC includes two four hour sessions conducted on two consecutive Saturdays after which students are eligible for the Florida Safe Boating ID Card (required for some boaters). This class is valuable for those who are new to boating, as well as those experienced boaters who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills. ABC is equally beneficial to the boat operator who is new to Florida or to Nature Coast waterways. As the Squadron says, Boating can be fun and safe. Let us show you how. The course is two fourhour sessions. The first session will be on Saturday, Nov. 12 and the second on Saturday, Nov. 19. The time is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. It will be held at the Crystal River Power Squadron Education Building, 845 N.E. 3rd Ave., Crystal River. Cost is $35 to cover the cost of materials. ABC covers the basics of safe boating, including types of boats, basic boat handling, required equipment, anchoring, refueling, navigation rules and regulations, trailering, use of the marine radio, emergencies and adverse conditions, personal watercraft (Jet Ski) safety, and some useful knots. A 50-question exam is administered at the conclusion of the course and those passing with a score of at least 80 percent will be awarded a certificate that can be submitted to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for the Safe Boater's ID Card required of boat operators born after January 1, 1988. This course also satisfies the requirement for a safe boating course after having received a citation in the State of Florida and may also earn you a discount on your boat insurance Bonus: Free six-month membership in the United States Power Squadrons upon successful completion of the course.

Crystal River Power Squadron announces the scheduling of Americas Boating Course (ABC), a basic boating safety and familiarization class for the public. ABC includes two four hour sessions conducted on two consecutive Saturdays after which students are eligible for the Florida Safe Boating ID Card (required for some boaters). This class is valuable for those who are new to boating, as well as those experienced boaters who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills. ABC is equally beneficial to the boat operator who is new to Florida or to Nature Coast waterways. As the Squadron says, Boating can be fun and safe. Let us show you how. The course is two fourhour sessions. The first session will be on Saturday, Nov. 12 and the second on Saturday, Nov. 19. The time is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. It will be held at the Crystal River Power Squadron Education Building, 845 N.E. 3rd Ave., Crystal River. Cost is $35 to cover the cost of materials. ABC covers the basics of safe boating, including types of boats, basic boat handling, required equipment, anchoring, refueling, navigation rules and regulations, trailering, use of the marine radio, emergencies and adverse conditions, personal watercraft (Jet Ski) safety, and some useful knots. A 50-question exam is administered at the conclusion of the course and those passing with a score of at least 80 percent will be awarded a certificate that can be submitted to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for the Safe Boater's ID Card required of boat operators born after January 1, 1988. This course also satisfies the requirement for a safe boating course after having received a citation in the State of Florida and may also earn you a discount on your boat insurance Bonus: Free six-month membership in the United States Power Squadrons upon successful completion of the course.

Lakeland will host the senior games finals later this year.ORHA elections The elections for the Oak Run Homeowners Association will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012. Four directors will be elected. Directors serve for two years and may run for another two years, then they must be off the board for two years before running again. Each and every Oak Run resident should give serious thought to running for one of these director positions. Anyone interested in running for the board of directors should contact Ellen Salenger at 352-861-4484. Resumes must be submitted by Nov. 8 and can be given to any board member. Nominations from the floor can be made at the general meeting on Nov. 9. So that you know what duties and time commitments are involved, here is a rundown of what it is directors do. Directors meet with the neighborhood representatives on the first Monday of the month for about 1 hours, followed by the directors workshop. Every second Wednesday of the month is the ORHA general meeting that typically lasts about 1 hours. Once every 8 weeks, each director serves as the director-on-duty for a week. This means you may be asked by different clubs to open the sound room and the kitchen at the two main facilities and be sure the supplies for coffee, plastic bags, etc are available for functions. There is nothing very difficult about any of this but you have the opportunity to serve your community and learn a lot about how this place we call home works.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, Oct. 25, we played our favorite Halloween game, the dreaded Pumpkin Ball. Each team had a designated ball and each woman was assigned certain holes that she would play with that ball. Only the net score of that ball counted for the team score. This put a lot of pressure on the player when she had the ball!! The winning teams who best handled the pressure were: First Place Elsa Berbig, Janet Tully and Ginger Drake; Second Place Roseann Lavacca, Lynn Houghton, Sheila Adams and Inge Szabo. Jan Tennant was closest to the pin on hole #16.Royal Oaks Lady NinersThe Lady Niners welcome back Sheila Weckstein! Throw Out Worst Hole was the game on Oct. 27. In Flight A, Rae Stover was the winner, and Salita Timmermeyer and B.J. Lassiter tied for second place. In Flight B, Eleanor Cerlenko was the winner, with Joan Scholl second and Joyce Madill third. Salita Timmermeyer won the closest to the pin contest on hole #3. 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. Royal Oaks Mens GolfOn Oct. 28 the mens group held its annual Oktoberfest Tournament. The game selected for the event was two man teams, net score better ball. Sixtyeight members participated, and the competition was fierce. The day started out cloudy with a little rain falling, but that stopped quickly, and the rest of the game was played under cloudy and cool conditions. As usual the course was in excellent shape, and the scores reflected this. The winners with a net score of 57 were Bill Staiger and Bill Start. In a tie for second with scores of 59 were Steve Casner and Dick Berbig; Mike Madill and Jim Spran.

mans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you will have to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would need to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction! Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is worse: a bomb in your underwear, or, your underwear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated my thinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world, (John 16:33 KJV). Whatever our tribulations might be, we can rest unabashed in the finished work of Jesus Christ. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

A t this time of the year, Jews all over the world read the story of Noah and the Ark. In this well-known tale, Noah, a righteous man in his time, builds an ark to hold all the species of earth because he has been told by God that God will destroy the earth because of humankinds wickedness. Noah and his family are saved from destruction and at the end of the story, the Almighty makes a covenant with Noah that never again would a global flood destroy the world; the sign of this solemn oath was the rainbow in the sky. A familiar segment found in the Hebrew Bible, it also is studied by Christians and Muslims. While the tale is intriguing and teaches many lessons, it is what happens after the Flood, which is most interesting. God gives human beings three laws, which the rabbis have increased to seven by which humankind is to live. These are the laws that non-Jews are supposed to follow in order to live in a moral and just manner. (Jews, have other obligations as well.) The laws are known as the Noahide laws, after Noah, the man who built the ark. The numeration of the laws appears in the Tosefta Sandedrin 9:4 and in the Talmud 58 a/b. The first law is: Not to murder. After the Great Flood with its devastation of human life, the earths people are admonished that all flesh is created in the Divine Image. The second law deals with stealing. People were not to take things that were not theirs to possess. Law number three has to do with idolatry. As there is only one Creator, so was that one Creator or God the one to be worshipped. The fourth law concerned itself with sexual morality. Incest and adultery were forbidden acts. At the end of the Noah story, Noah gets drunk and uncovers himself in his tent. (Gen. 9:21) There has been much speculation as to what was going on here and many scholars believe sexual impropriety had occurred in some form. Law number five has to do with the consumption of food. After the Flood, humans are allowed to eat meat. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were vegetarians. In a humorous play I wrote about the famous couple, I have Eve asking Adam what there was to do in the Garden. Adam tells Eve that they could grab a veggie burger and then go meet all the animals! Here, in this law, humans are to slaughter animals in a humane way, not tear a limb from a living animal nor consume its life source, blood. Incidentally, the rules of keeping kosher derive partially from this verse. The sixth law is a prohibition against blaspheming the name of God. It would make sense that after all was said and done, God was to be revered and the Divine name was to be kept holy. The seventh law is a positive one. It required humankind to establish laws and courts of justice. How was humanity and civilization to continue if not within a code of law? If humanity follows these Noahide rules, then the righteous of all nations will have a share in the world to come (be saved). This is a concept that is considered basic and is accepted by all branches of Judaism. God has rachmoness, compassion; on the creatures he/she has created according to Jewish belief and loves all people. The next time you see one of the glorious rainbows we have here in Florida, keep in mind Gods promise to humankind: that of brighter days to come and peace to all the inhabitants of the world.

Martha Vaughn Chairperson Co-Owner, Dunnellons Turner House Florist LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 R ecently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person who designed the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Im thinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I know I need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to remind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have any room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was in I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? Personally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the entire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. However, I can live with some of these inconveniences. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. If there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would be a happy flyer. It has been a while since I flew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of the fees associated with flying these days someone has not come up with the bright idea of charging a fee for everyone to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go through a very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgotten how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to make sure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. Then, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my underwear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, so I had to take that out and put in a tray. Again, I walked through and the buzzer went off. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? My wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and then walked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. At this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could take off. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in the buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other side of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. You have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and then said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont you? With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentleI dont mind flying; airports are the problem O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com majority of Republicans will regard the 2012 election as an existential crossroad for our country, a last chance to change direction before we end up like Greece financially bankrupt, economically moribund, and politically convulsed. In this scenario, just as the Democrats in 2008 nominated a man of the left, Obama, rather than a more centrist candidate, so the GOP will nominate an anti-Obama, a true-blue conservative as committed to a radical swing to the right, just as Obama pushed a radical swing to the left. If the political pendulum swings far enough to the right to produce a 2012 conservative electoral landslide, and then Republicans follow through with bold cuts in federal spending and power, the years 2013 and 2014 will be crucial. If conservative policies revive the economy quickly, then Republicans could hold on to their 2012 gains in the 2014 mid-term elections. If not, or if they step on too many toes, then there could be an anti-Republican backlash for moving too far to the right, just as voters punished Democrats in the 2010 elections for moving too far to the left. If a sizable Republican majority were elected in 2012, would they "roll the dice" and risk political suicide by instituting major reforms? I imagine there is some serious soulsearching going on now. I wonder how many of them are grappling with the dilemma that must confront every officeseeker in a democratic electoral system: Should I do what will get me elected or reelected, even if I know that the policies I support will weaken our country, or should I vote for what I know will help the country, even if it costs me my political career? These next few years will be fascinating. Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson is an adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 T he Halloween carnival at the Southwest District Sheriffs Office property Monday provided some happy moments for a lot of children, but in my eyes there was one incident I had that left me feeling a little bit sad and angry at the same time. To be sure, the carnival was great. An awful lot of people volunteered to put on the event, and it seemed this year that the children were much more appreciative of what was going on. There were games and prizes, horses, rescue truck, bomb squad and dancing with a disc jockey, face painting and all those other good things that go with an evening of celebration. At one point I was wandering around looking for cute kids to take a picture of. I saw this young couple with a little girl who seemed mesmerized by what was going on around her. I told the parents who I was and what I was doing, and asked permission to take her picture (as a matter of fact, everyone I asked all evening was very friendly and cooperative). After I took the girls photo, I asked my usual three questions of the parents: Whats her name, how old is she, and what part of town do you live in. One of the answers got my attention. After the name and age, the mother, Francesca Rohn, said, Actually, were from Alaska. The husband immediately added, Im in the military, and were here visiting family. Before I could get another question out, his wife said, Hes being deployed. It turns out that Steven Rohn, 21, has been in the Army for two years and is getting ready to go to Afghanistan. We talked for a couple of minutes, and then parted ways as they headed for another attraction and I looked for more pictures to take. A little while later I got in my car to go home, and I began thinking about that incident. The more I thought about it, the more upset I got. Here was a nice young couple, presumably just starting out, thousands of miles away from home, and this husband and father was about to go even farther as he heads for Afghanistan. I sat there wondering why. If we are so strong militarily, why havent we ended these hostilities by now, so we dont have to send people like this away from their families, leaving this young mother to cope with a 21-monthold daughter. With all the stuff about Khadafy (however you spell it) and about Iraq recently, Afghanistan has kind of been the forgotten war. This chance meeting put a real face on the battle, a face of those headed to that country. It was some time ago that things were supposedly going our way in Afghanistan. Toby Keith was making jokes about the Taliban in their caves and singing about our victories. But while those days have faded, Afghanistan hasnt gone away. We got proof of that right here on the Corridor this Monday. Its too bad President Obama and some of our representatives and senators werent there Monday. It might have been enlightening for them to meet real people who are affected by their actions (or inactions). Lets not forget these young soldiers over there. All of us should wish the best for all of them, and particularly for Scott Rohn. We should adopt him as one of ours and hope that in a couple of years hell be back at the carnival treating Addison to another Halloween. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T he Sheriffs Office came out with its annual list of sex predators and sex offenders last week. The booklet lists 648 violators with their photos and home addresses, all of which are public record. Although, fortunately, we didnt recognize anyone I knew, it did make for some interesting reading. The violators are broken down by Zip Code, which makes comparison of the areas quite easy. As an aside, it also shows how ridiculous the Zip Code designations are, with adjacent Zip Code numbers at opposite ends of the county, and two different Zip Codes for the County Jail. That, of course, is a postal service problem. Of the 648 violators, 25 are currently in jail, 16 are women, and the vast majority are white males. Looking at the breakdown by Zip Codes, the ones with more than 30 violators include Citra, Ocklawaha, Belleview, Dunnellon, and the Shores area. There is one northwest area that has a large number, but about half its list includes people in the county jail. Some Zips have only one or two people listed, but that is misleading, because it is mostly the Zip Codes that are shared with another county. Supposedly the list is accurate, but were a little nervous about printing specific addresses of anyone, because we are such a mobile society. There are 15 people listed in the Zip Code serving much of our area, 34481. If you go to http://www.marionso.com/main.php which is the sheriffs website, there are links enabling you to search for the offenders and predators in your area. For the protection of you and your family, you should familiarize yourself with the names and addresses, and pictures, of anyone listed in your familys area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY It could be your neighbor A Halloween visitor from Alaska Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON Special to the Citizen W hoever takes the oath of office as President of the United States in January of 2013 will inherit an economy facing multiple challenges: Undoubtedly, still-escalating federal spending will have the government bumping up against the debt ceiling again. By then, total federal debt will be larger than our GDP Unemployment is likely to remain high. The supply and reliability of our power-generating infrastructure will be stressed and at risk due to President Obamas antienergy policies. Social Security and Medicare will still need to be reformed significantly to address long-term fiscal imbalances. And the economy will encounter new headwinds as the landmines of tax increases with which Obama has salted the economic landscape are detonated. These include new taxes for Obamacare, the scheduled expiration of the Bush tax cuts, and the end of Obamas temporary reduction in Social Security withholding. Obama has shown no indication of modifying his policies or agenda. Presumably, any of the Republican candidates would favor change on these issues (although perhaps not on Social Security and Medicare), but would he or she actually be able to solve these problems, even if there were a veto-proof Republican Congress? The big political question for election year 2012 is: How much change would Republicans want? Would they downsize government as much as Obama upsized it? Will Republicans nominate a safe, moderate candidate (think: Ford, Bush, and Dole)a technocratic tinkerer who accepts the entrenched paradigm of Big Government, and seeks to manage Leviathan better than Democrats would? Or will they opt for an unabashed conservative, a major reformer with a radical vision for smaller government? That question wasnt even conceivable a year ago, but the tectonic plates in the American political landscape may be starting to shift. Whiffs of radical reform are in the air. Herman Cain, who favors a three-step plan to replace the income tax with a national sales tax and the privatization of Social Security, has risen in the polls since his impressive victory in the Sept. 24 Florida straw poll. On Sept. 27, Newt Gingrich unveiled his st Century Contract With America, proposing to replace such venerable bureaucracies as the National Labor Relations Board and the Environmental Protection Agency. In doing so, Gingrich dared to challenge two of the most powerful Democratic special interest groups in America, environmentalists and labor unions (the strangest political bedfellows in our country, since hardcore greens would eliminate jobs in industry if they could). It is possible that the bold proposals of Cain and Gingrich are just so much noise red meat offered by dark horse candidates designed to excite passionate conservatives, but that are anathema to Republicans who believe that a more centrist nominee would be more electable? Another possibility is that a READER OPINIONS INVITED Looking ahead to 2012, 2013 and 2014 PLEASESEEGUEST PAGE9 W e deserved it and finally got a beautiful cool down with our weather. Hurricane season is almost over and Ocala has been spared once again. Is this a great place to live or what? Feature of the month The feature this month is Delores and Bill Pecor. Bill Pecor was born in Cornish, N.H., and had two brothers and one sister. The family moved to Manchester, Conn., where Bill and his siblings attended East Hartford elementary and high schools. After high school Bill worked at East Hartford housing (for veterans). He later worked at Brainard Field (a small military airport). He remained there for 32 years. He met Delores Picard in 1955. Delores was born in North Grosvenardale, Conn., and went to St. Joseph elementary and high schools. After graduation she went to work at a textile company that made Arrow shirts. The mill closed and Delores moved with her aunt and uncle to East Hartford and got a job at Aetna Insurance Company when she met Bill in 1955 and they married in 1956 (she didnt have to change her initials). They had three children, David born in 1958, Michele in 1962 and William in 1966. Later came four grandchildren. David resides in Davenport, Florida, Michele in Massachusetts, and William in Connecticut. Delores worked at the University of Connecticut, for 11 years. Bill and Delores retired to Ocala in 1990 and bought a home in Spruce Creek North. Bill does excellent woodworking and oil paints beautifully. He plays pool (billiards) and occasionally likes to golf (when he has the time). He and Delores bowled for many years and they love to travel. Delores leads water exercise (in the summer) one day a week and indoor exercise one day a week. She belongs to the SCN Quilt club, loves to read, cook and play the piano. They both love gardening and plant many organic vegetables. They enjoy their morning walks. They belong to Queen of Peace church where Delores serves as a sacristan. All the way from Connecticut to Ocala, this couple enjoys the good life in Spruce Creek North.Pancake BreakfastThe third SCN pancake breakfast of the new season will be Nov. 26 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. There will be sausages, French toast, pancakes, orange juice, coffee or tea, all for $3 per person.

Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com M adeleine Hanna has always loved reading. Thats why shes an English Major at Brown University. But its 1982 and Brown is a hotbed of postmodernism which means her beloved novels are out and Lacan and Derrida are in. Madeleines favorites Jane Austen and Henry James have been relegated to the shadow land of literary history. But her affection for the marriageplot novels, those books usually ending in weddings, remains solid. Madeleine felt safe in a nineteenth-century novel. There were going to be people in it. Something was going to happen to them in a place resembling the world. Even so, not wanting to be labeled a 19th-century nerd trapped in another time, she holds her nose and studies deconstruction and takes a course in semiotics. It is here that she meets the love of her life, a moody science major named Leonard. In a clever twist on Jane Austen romances, the author brings to The Marriage Plot his own wry commentary on love triangles and contemporary marriage. When the novel opens, its Madeleines graduation day. Shes hung over, still smarting from an argument with her friend Mitchell Grammaticus and dreading breakfast with her rich, very proper parents. On this gloomy spring day the future is iffy at best for Madeleine and her fellow graduates. The recession is deep; jobs are scarce; and relationships are indeterminate. She and boyfriend Leonard have temporarily broken up. He is a hopeless manic depressive, scorned by her mother and married sister Alwyn. In a throwback to an Austen novel they both want her to hold out for someone more in keeping with her station in life, not play nursemaid to a poor, unemployed misfit. As Leonard and Madeleine sort out their differences, the lovesick, spurned Mitchell embarks on a religious odyssey. This is a quirky, unconventional, unsentimental love story but a love story nevertheless as these three young people grope painfully, glacially toward individual resolutions Quirky love story B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Book sale for Blind Center A book sale will take place Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Florida Center for the Blind, 7634 S.W. 60th Ave., Ocala.

BOSTON -U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio changes the landscape in Florida when added to the Republican ticket, according to a Suffolk University/7NEWS (WSVN-Miami) poll of registered voters in Florida. Assuming the selection of Rubio in the vice president spot, the Republican presidential nominee would secure 46 percent to President Barack Obamas 41 percent, with 2 percent voting for an independent candidate and 12 percent undecided. The poll also showed Mitt Romney (25 percent) running neckand-neck with Herman Cain (24 percent) among registered Republicans in Florida. Marco Rubio secures Florida which, along with Ohio, is one of the two most important swing states to win, said David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Bostons Suffolk University. He also adds potential strength in states like New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, and Nevada, which have high Hispanic populations. Without Rubio in the mix, Obama tied Mitt Romney at 42 percent, led Herman Cain 42 percent to 39 percent, led Rick Perry 46 percent to 34 percent, led Ron Paul 44 percent to 32 percent, and led Newt Gingrich 45 percent to 38 percent. Rubios significant impact was measured among Hispanic voters and younger voters. For example, with Rubio included as vice president, the Republican ticket wins 53 percent to 33 percent among Hispanic voters and 47 percent to 40 percent among younger voters ages 18-44, where Rubio has broad appeal. While Obama struggles in the low 40 percent range on job performance and head-to-head matchups with Romney and Cain, he rockets to 50 percent when Hillary Clinton is added to the Democratic ticket. When asked which ticket voters would support assuming a Democratic ticket of Obama-Clinton or a Republican ticket, 50 percent chose Obama-Clinton; 41 percent would vote Republican; 2 percent would select an independent candidate; and 6 percent were undecided. Its ironic that in the 2008 Democratic Primary, Barack Obama had to overthrow Clinton and the more traditional factions of the Democratic Party to win the nomination, said Paleologos. Now Clinton has become the quantifiable lifeboat that could save a sinking Democratic ticket in 2012. The Suffolk University Political Research Center tracked Clintons popularity during midterm-election-cycle polling in October 2010, when her favorability was running 10to-14 points higher than Obamas in key states like Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Today in Florida, Clintons 64 percent favorable rating is 19 points higher than Obamas 45 percent. Every extra percentage point advantage could mean major color changes on the electoral map, despite Hillary Clintons repeated refusals, said Paleologos. On the question of loyalty, Obama may have to grapple with his loyalty to his running mate Joe Biden versus his loyalty to the Democratic Party by fielding the strongest ticket possible. In the marquee matchup of an Obama-Clinton ticket versus a GOP ticket with Rubio as vice president, Obama led 46 percent to 43 percent, with 10 per-Friday, November 4, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, November 4, 2011 www.smcitizen.com J a s m i n e P l a z a 3 5 2 4 0 1 0 0 0 1 Jasmine Plaza 352-401-0001 6 1 6 0 S W S R 2 0 0 U n i t 1 0 4 O c a l a F l o r i d a 3 4 4 7 6 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 Ocala, Florida 34476 S T O R E H O U R S : T U E S F R I 1 0 5 S A T 1 0 2 STORE HOURS: TUES.-FRI. 10-5 SAT. 10-2 Readers Choice Winner Jewelry Store 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 www.jandjjewelersocala.com Affordable New & Estate Jewelry 0009PQD A l l r e p a i r s d o n e o n p r e m i s e s A l l r e p a i r s d o n e o n p r e m i s e s All repairs done on premises.

Hope Dawn Carrato, 45, of Southwest 158th Lane, Florida Highlands, was at her home when deputies arrived. The victim said a verbal argument had broken out and that Carrato grabbed a knife and held it up to his neck. He told deputies, according to the report, that he was scared and slapped Carratos hand away from his neck area and she then put the knife away. Carrato said she had put the knife to his neck, but it was only a Halloween joke. According to the report, both parties had been drinking. Carrato was arrested and taken to jail. A local woman was given a notice to appear for retail petit theft after an incident at Bealls. Megan Anne Lagrasta, 18, of Southwest 46th Court, allegedly took nine items of clothing.

L iving in the middle of horse country makes it hard for us to realize that Floridas cattle industry is one of the 15 largest in the United States. In 1521 Ponce de Leon brought horses and cattle to Florida, making it the oldest cattle raising state in the nation. In addition to ranches, diary farms throughout Florida bring some stories to this weeks Pun Alley.Sonnys placeAt the turn of the century a cattle baron bought his three boys a ranch near Arcadia to raise cattle. He named it Focus because thats where the sons raise meat. They kept track of the cows and bulls on a catalyst. Off the cuff Cowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe. Pair of cufflinks, said Fess. But I aint got no use for them. I cant even find anyplace to get my wrists pierced. Real dude The lady had come to a dude ranch and was all ready to take her first horseback ride. She said to the cowboy, Can you get me a nice gentle pony? Shore, said the cowboy. What kind of saddle do you want, English or western? Whats the difference? asked the lady. The western saddle has a horn on it, said the cowboy. If the traffic is so thick here that I need a horn on my saddle, I dont believe I want to ride. Romantic The sun was dropping behind the horizon. The moon was beginning to rise. All was quiet on the farm, and the gentle breeze hinted at romance. The farm boy and the pretty girl from the next farm strolled hand in hand through the pasture. They stopped to watch the calf and its mother rubbing noses. Id like to be doing that, said the farmer boy wistfully.

Nevertheless, they eventually got married. Instead of lighting a unity candle at the ceremony, they each poured a little cream from their respective dairies into the same bowl. They were cream-mated. Bits Cowboys can get a sickness from riding wild horses. Its called bronchitis. The cross-eyed dog kept barking up the wrong tree. The ranch owner used to sleep in a chandelier. He was a light sleeper. After a day at the animal auction, he felt like he was a hoarse trader. The bowlegged cowboy was fired because he couldnt keep his calves together. Visitor: Wow, you have a lot of flies buzzing round your horses and cows. Do you ever shoo them? Cowboy: No we just let them go barefoot. Dressed horseA rancher was trying to sell a horse. After exercising it, he exclaimed to his prospective buyer, Dont you admire his coat? His coat is fine, said the prospect, but I dont care for the pants. Lotta bullBack many years ago, two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherited the family ranch. To keep from going broke, they needed to purchase a bull so they could breed their own stock. The brunette took their last $600 and drove north to a ranch where a man had a prize bull for sale. Upon leaving home, she had told her sister, If I buy the bull, Ill contact you to come for me and haul it home. The brunette inspected the bull and decided to buy it.

Food is a traditional part of holiday festivities, but enjoying it excessively can quickly lead to weight gain, as well as unhealthy changes in blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol. But before you go cold turkey this Thanksgiving or toss your Christmas cookie recipes, read on for tips to enjoy the seasons festive fare without the unhealthy consequences. The challenge to enjoying healthy holiday food is to eat reasonable servings of healthier versions of your favorite dishes. Portion control can make a big difference in preventing those insidious extra pounds and adapting recipes to include healthy ingredients reduces calorie intake and increases nutrient content. Adapt the recipes of your favorite dishes by eliminating or reducing unhealthy ingredients and adding healthier ingredients. Keep in mind, its easier to adjust ingredients such as butter, sugar and salt in cooked dishes and harder to adjust them in baked goods. These ingredients play a more vital role in baked goods (e.g. salt and sugar in yeast breads), and it may be easier to just use a pre-modified and pretested recipe. 1. Reduce fat by using non-fat or low-fat dairy products. For example, use nonor low-fat milk and sour cream, light butter or margarine, nonor low-fat Greek or regular yogurt and reduced fat cheeses. 2. Slightly reducing sugar has little or no effect on the final product in cooked (not baked) sweetened dishes such as sweet potato casserole. Dont try to reduce sugar in baking applications; sugar imparts tenderness, moisture and browning in these foods and is vital in yeast breads. 3. Reduce or eliminate salt in almost all recipes. Remember that processed foods contain more sodium, so choose natural foods whenever possible. Dont reduce salt in yeast breads; without salt, the dough will rise too quickly, affecting the shape and flavor. 4. Add vegetables to almost any entre, side dish, soup or salad. Stuffing is the perfect food for adding vegetables; summer squash, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, onions and celery add flavor and moisture and reduce calories per serving. 5. Add fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin, carrots or zucchini to quick-bread batters. Try stewed fruit with meat and poultry and dried fruit pilaf, orange sections and dried cranberries with salads. Plain fruits and vegetables are a real calorie bargain at 60 and 25 calories per half-cup serving, respectively. 6. Use the natural sugars of fruit to sweeten nonbaked foods. For example, remake your sweet potato casserole by using pineapple, sliced apples and raisins instead of syrup, brown sugar, butter and marshmallows. Have questions?

WOODBURY Special to the Citizen It started out as a cool, rainy day, but thankfully the sun came out in time for the blessing of the animals at Joy Lutheran Church on Saturday, Oct. 29 outside in the Memorial Garden. More than 30 people came with their pets about 19 dogs of all sizes and four cats. There were cockapoos, poodles, a dachshund, a bulldog and a large German shepherd plus other mixed breeds. Most came from Ocala, with one from Hernando. The Rev. William Rosenow, retired parish pastor, currently acting as a supply pastorfilling in wherever he is neededand a member of Joy Lutheran Church officiated at this service. He offered prayers and read from Genesis, Chapter 1And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of every kind. Pastor Rosenow asked each person to share some insights regarding their pet. Many of the pets had been adopted from the Humane Society shelters. One person said he was raised on a farm and felt that having animals was a good way to learn about life. Many praised their pets as a comfort, loyal, with a forgiving nature, certainly a lesson we can all learn. They give back so much and ask for little. One person expressed that her pet was a comfort and Blessed day for animals Stone named chair of County Commission Charlie Stone was elected chairman by his fellow commissioners as he serves his final year on the county board.

The group had been on a oneday trip to Washington, D.C., paid for by donations. Those needing assistance were provided with any needed assistance on all parts of the trip. Honor Guards from some local organizations joined the crowd in welcoming the veterans home. A fire truck sprayed water on the plane just before it unloaded its precious cargo. There were musicians on the tarmac entertaining the large crowd gathered while waiting for the plane to arrive. A check was also presented from the Spruce Creek Preserve community for $1,130 to help offset the costs of the flight. Boy Scouts in attendance collected donations from the people gathered to welcome the veterans home. Firefighters who made the trip were honored by the county.
