Marion Woods is hosting other events during the weekend to also support this program. Outward Bound for Veterans helps returning service members and recent veterans readjust to life at home through powerful wilderness courses that draw on the healing benefit of teamwork and challenge through use of the natural world. Service members take part in wilderness expeditions that are physically, mentally and emotionally challenging in order to build the self-confidence, pride, trust, and communication skills necessary to successfully return to their families, employers and communities following wartime service. VIETNAMCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 On Sunday, Nov. 6, around 3 p.m., deputies conducted a traffic stop on a silver Dodge Magnum for a tint violation. The driver, Mario Vargas, did not have a valid drivers license. The passenger initially gave deputies a false name and date of birth. With Vargas consent, deputies searched the car and found marijuana and cocaine. While deputies tried to identify the passenger with the Rapid ID Scan system, the suspect fled on foot. He was quickly apprehended and identified as Ramone Williams, who had an active warrant. Williams admitted to swallowing eight (8) pieces of crack cocaine and was transported to a local hospital. Deputies searched the rest of the vehicle and located a safe and duffle bag. The contents of the safe and bag included: 40 credit cards in 40 different names. Ledgers containing more than 100 Social Security numbers and names. $8,300 in U.S. currency. $9,600 in blank money orders. After questioning him about the items found, suspect Vargas reported that he was helping his cousin operate an income tax refund check scam. Ramone Williams was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, resisting without violence, tampering with evidence and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. Mario Vagas was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license (DWLSR), identity theft, obtaining a credit card by fraudulent means. Additional arrests are pending.SentencedTyler John McPartland, 25, was sentenced Friday, Nov. 4, to 35 years in prison with a 20-year minimum mandatory. McPartland Suspect charged with identity theft, related crimes was convicted for shooting at four Marion County Sheriffs Office deputies when they arrived at an apartment along Southwest 21st Place, Ocala. It was near 1 a.m., Nov. 8, 2009, when 911 got the call: a woman stated she had been threatened and the suspect had a gun. The Marion County Sheriffs Office responded. Before long McPartland left the apartment and was met by two deputies who told McPartland to stop. McPartland refused and then pulled out a 9mm semi-automatic gun and began firing at the deputies who returned fire. McPartland then ran toward two other MCSO deputies and McPartland shot at them. They fired shots at McPartland. No one was struck. McPartland continued to run and soon came upon a third team of MCSO deputies who gave McPartland a series of verbal commands to halt and show his hands. McPartland finally complied.DUI caseA Miami man was accused of DUI after he was stopped in the 4000 block of State Road 200 for failing to maintain a single lane. After allegedly failing the field sobriety test, Frank Farray, 39, was taken to jail, where he refused to supply a breath sample.

It's an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). "The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public," said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement. "We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators." The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When people's information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservation-minded people don't even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, don't forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. There are many other ways that concerned citizens can directly assist the FWC. Angler Tag Return Hotline: Call 800-367-4461. Burmese Pythons, or other exotic reptiles: Call 888-483-4681.

Starting Nov. 14 and continuing through February 2012, the Marion County Office of the County Engineer will implement the final phase in a series of stormwater retrofits addressing the water quality of runoff discharging into the 5.6-mile-long river in Dunnellon. The project will involve construction of a wet detention pond and landscaping on the south side of County Road 484 (East Pennsylvania Avenue) west of the Dr. Curtis Nelson Bridge. Previous project phases included stormwater retrofits to the bridge and to County Road 484 east of that location. Construction will take place during daylight hours on weekdays only. Motorists may experience temporary lane closures on County Road 484 near the Camp Drive intersection to accommodate construction vehicles entering and exiting the site. Sidewalk access and on-street parking may be temporarily unavailable in the vicinity of the construction. Crews will place proper signage and barricades. Traffic will be maintained through the work zone at all times. Adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances may affect construction schedules.

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com On the web: www.smcitizen.com In autumn, animals know winter is coming and take the steps to prepare. Bears grow thicker fur and settle in for peaceful hibernation. Squirrels collect and store acorns and other nuts. Birds, favoring warmer weather and having the means to make it possible, fly south for the winter. When it comes to preparing for retirement, we can learn from the animals making sure the transition into the later years of our lives is as smooth and comfortable as possible. The best place to start is a visit to www.socialsecurity.gov. You can get an instant, personalized estimate of your future Social Security benefits at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. To prepare for a comfortable retirement, you should start saving as early as possible. Social Security is the foundation for a secure retirement, but was never meant to be the solesource of income for retirees. In addition to Social Security, you also will need savings, investments, pensions or retirement accounts to make sure you have enough money to live comfortably when you retire. Learn about retirement planning and how to save at www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/other2.htm. But, wait, theres more. If you decide youre going to be a snowbird when retirement comes, and go to warmer climates during winter weather, make sure that your Social Security payment goes with you. The best way to do that is to use direct deposit. You never have to worry about where your monthly payment will be delivered it will show up in your bank account whether youre in the Dakotas or the Florida Keys. Learn all about electronic payments at www.socialsecurity.gov/deposit. Whether youre in the spring, summer, or entering the autumn of your life, the best time to start preparing for retirement is always the present. A good place to start is at www.socialsecurity.gov. Even the animals know they cant wait until the last minute to prepare for a comfortable winter. Take a lesson from our furry and feathered friends and prepare for your own comfortable retirement. Autumns retirement lessons SOCIAL SECURITY A WAdon Williams Theres no doubt about it: Losing a job can be stressful. The thought of starting over can be unnerving, particularly if youve worked for the same company for a while.Get The FactsFirst, make an appointment with your companys Human Resources Department and get answers to these important questions: Can you negotiate a later departure date? This could give you more time to look for another job. Are you entitled to severance? If so, how much? n Will you receive payment for unused vacation days? If not, you should schedule them as soon as possible. How long will you be entitled to health coverage? And at what cost? Likewise, can you maintain your insurance policy? If so, at what rate? Whats involved in transferring, borrowing or withdrawing your 401(k) funds? Are you entitled to unemployment compensation? If so, what documentation do you need?Leave on Good TermsWhen your last day comes, handling yourself with professionalism and maturity will serve you better in the end. Although these are difficult circumstances, focus on what youve accomplished for the company and the skills youll take with you. Take any awards you may have earned, as well as nonprivileged work samples theyll be of interest to prospective employers. Take Constructive Actions In your search for a new job: Notify your references, including past employers, that youre job hunting. Update your resume, quantifying your accomplishments whenever possible (e.g. exceeded sales goal by 8 percent). Register with employment agencies and/or search firms. (Ask in advance if they charge for their services). Say yes to every interview, even if it isnt the job you want. Its good practice. Familiarize yourself with the companies youre interviewing with. Being prepared will go a long way with prospective employers. Follow up on your interviews with a thank-you e-mail or note. Although it is difficult, losing your job doesnt have to be an end. Indeed, it could give you a fresh start!This educational thirdparty article is being provided as a courtesy by Herbert W. Silverman, MBA, New York Life Insurance Company.

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the CitizenIt was nothing dramatic, says Dr. Karl E. Blake of Wexford, Pennsylvania, retired surgeon and member of the World War II generation, but it was important, and no one has written about it, at least that Ive seen. I got an unexpected call from Dr. Blake last Memorial Day, mid-afternoon, after just returning from the annual Memorial Day Parade in Mercer, Pennsylvania, which every year is a scene right out of a Norman Rockwell portraitthe essence of small-town America. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had published a profile I did of a local 87-year-old vet (same age as Blake) named Frank Kravetz, a former POW who did time in the hell-hole of the Nazis Nuremberg Prison Camp. I concluded that article with a plea to aging vets to share their unique experiences with the current generation, imploring them not to take this invaluable history to the grave. Well, said the soft-spoken Blake, reminding me of my own words, Ive got something that I dont think people know about. Someone needs to record this. Get it on-record. Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it. Okay, I told him. Start talking. What people today dont understand, Blake began, getting right to the point, is that in 1942, 1943, and so on, the government had no idea how long the war was going to last. That caught my attention right away. So true, I interrupted, today we know the dates: Normandy, June 1944. V-E Day, May 1945. The surrender of Japan, September 1945. But when you were living through it, you didnt know. Thats right, said Blake. And the government didnt know, and the government was making plans for the long-term. There were measures that the government took to get a supply of educated people dentists, physicians, all kinds of things. American society was going to need professional people. So many young men were serving in the war overseas. I hadnt thought of that. I hadnt read about it eitherBlakes point precisely. Blake told me about three government programs, which he abbreviated as V-1, V-12, and ASTP (Army Specialized Training Program). The former were both Navy operations. Blake was in V-1s. These were rigorous academic programs heavy in math and science. Among the goals was to create a non-combat professional class. Blake was trained as a doctor. Blake had grown up in Mercer, Pennsylvaniathe very site www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 11, 2011 Last week, I received a news release from Amtrak, the train people, that I could now catch a bus in The Villages (I already could do it in Ocala) to catch an Amtrak train. They seemed very excited about that. My first thought was, if I wanted to ride a bus, Id ride a bus. Im riding Amtrak because I want to ride a train. So I started thinking, what are the comparisons like? Suppose I want to go from Ocala to New Yorks Penn Station, which is where Amtrak goes. What would my choices be? Lets say I wanted to leave on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and return Monday Dec. 12. First, Amtrak. Round trip to New Yorks Penn Station would be $284. You can take two carryon luggage pieces and check three bags free. This, by the way, was in a coach seat, not a compartment. I would have to have someone take me to the bus, because in Ocala, you cant park your car overnight at the station. Seems to me that isnt good for stimulating usage, but what do I know. I catch the train in Jacksonville, then go to New York City, where I wouldnt arrive until Wednesday evening. By the time I got to a hotel, checked in, etc., it would probably be time to find something to eat and go to sleep in the city that never sleeps. After all, I had spent the previous night in a trains coach seat. And about food. Theres a little note on the Amtrak website that coach passengers are charged extra for meals. How nice. Coming home, I would leave on Tuesday in mid-morning and get back to Ocala Wednesday morning. Second, Greyhound bus. This is definitely the cheaper route, but probably the least comfortable. You would leave Ocala at 1:05 p.m. Tuesday and get to Penn Station in New York on Wednesday at 8:05 p.m. You have to change buses in Lake City, Richmond, Virginia, and at an early stop in New York. Presumably you could get off wherever that is and take a taxi to the Penn Station area and your hotel, but thats an extra expense. Coming back, I cant leave New York on Monday, but I would have to leave on Sunday, change in Richmond and Atlanta. Total cost for the bus is $186 listed, doesnt say anything about taxes. Of course, you have to eat in the bus stop restaurants at the stations, not always an appetizing amenity. Third, flying. I did a search from Gainesville to JFK Airport in New York City, and came up with a Delta flight for $256 after taxes. I would leave at 6:38 and get to New York at 11:12 a.m. On Tuesday, giving me an extra day up there (but the hotel is $300 a night or so.) Id have to get a taxi or limo from the airport to the Penn Station area to arrive at the same place as the bus and train. Coming back is about the same but the fare I quoted is round trip. Id also have to pay to park my car in Gainesville for a week or so. Finally, there is driving, which, no secret, is my favorite. If I left Ocala at 6 a.m. On Tuesday, and really felt energetic, I could drive all the way through. However, Im not as young as I used to be, so Id probably stop after about 12 hours in Richmond, on the north side. Id get up and leave not too early in the morning to avoid rush hour in D.C., and get to my hotel in New York about 2 p.m. Mileage about 900 miles. My car gets 30 miles to the gallon and 300 miles to a tank. Three tanks of gas at about $30 each is $90, or $180 round trip. One night in a motel about $60, but not that much for food. Youd be surprised how long a bucket of chicken can last when youre driving. Same expenses in New York, for the hotel, but an additional charge for parking the car, which is probably more expensive in New York than in Gainesville. What do all these comparisons show? For most people, the air route is the best, and fastest and probably most comfortable. I say most people because some of us dont fly. But we certainly dont take a bus to get to a train. Putting it all together, I guess my dream of seeing the Mets play at home in Citi Field is just a pipe dream, and wont happen. But, of course, there always is an alternative. When do the spring training games start in Port St. Lucie?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

This Friday is Veterans Day, a time for us to honor all those who put on a uniform and serve in the military to help protect our country. Many people confuse this day with Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in May. Memorial Day honors all those who gave their lives in service of their country. Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors all veterans, living and dead. Its particularly important to honor those who are still with us. Although they didnt make the ultimate sacrifice that their deceased comrades made, they still gave up a chunk of their lives to protect and serve. Some came back with lifelong scars, both physical and mental. Fridays the day we should let them all know that we appreciate their service, whether in combat or not. Much attention is paid now to the veterans of World War II, especially with the Honor Flights that have provided them a chance to see a memorial built in Washington, D.C., in the honor of the service of the troops in that war. But, sadly, the number of World War II veterans is thinning out. A simple math deduction shows why: If a person in the military were 18 years old in 1945 when the war ended, he would be 84 years old today. But there are many veterans of wars and campaigns since then: Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. They are still around and, in many cases, active. This is the day to honor them, especially since they are here to receive the praise that they deserve. So take time this Friday to honor a veteran in the community.

Take it one step at a time, Lamb, and soon all will be made clear. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That difficult situation youve been dealing with continues to call for careful handling. Avoid quickly made choices that might not stand up when theyre finally put to the test. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still have lots of evaluating to do before you can consider making a commitment. Its better to move cautiously than to risk stumbling into a major misunderstanding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously peevish partner offers to be more helpful with your problems. But remember: The final choice is yours. Be guided by what you feel is the right thing to do. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As the Big Cat, you can sometimes be pretty rough on those you suspect of betrayal. The best advice is to pull in those claws and listen to the explanation. It might surprise you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your inner voice usually guides you well. But a note of caution: This is a period of mixed signals for you, so be careful you dont misunderstand the messages youre getting. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Cupids call beckons both single Librans looking for a new love, as well as couples hoping to strengthen their relationships. A workplace problem is quickly resolved. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Its been a hectic time for you, and you might want to take a break to restore both body and soul. Youll then be set to face new challenges later this month. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Its a good idea to take a more conservative approach to your financial situation right now. Some plans made earlier this year might need readjusting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a fine time to move boldly into those new opportunities I promised would open up for you. Check them over, and then choose the best one for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Your selfassurance is growing stronger, and you should now feel more confident about making that long-deferred decision about a possible commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre very close to reaching your goal. But be wary of distractions that can lure you off-course and leave you stranded far away from where you really want to be. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an inner sight that helps you see into peoples hearts. You would be an excellent psychologist or social worker. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com (ironically) of the Memorial Day Parade I had just attended. He went to Grove City College, where I teach, and then followed at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh, two outstanding medical schools. So, I said to Blake as I scribbled notes, bachelors at Grove City, and then masters at Penn and M.D. at Pitt? No, no, Blake replied. I never got a degree. Thats something else people dont understand. Back then, you did as much schooling as you could afford and needed. Thats how it went. Indeed. That, too, is something lost over the years. Today, for way too many students, college is a four-year partyactually, a six-year party. Its not about studying, training, honing a skill or the life of the mind. You have fun, buy a degree without, hopefully, losing your soul and parents hard-earned savings. Worse, its often a scandalous rip-off, as universities charge obscene prices for what they provide. Karl Blakes generation wouldnt dare waste a dime of that hard-earned money. Blake told me how he went to college for $87 per semester, scraping together a handful of semesters. His experience had been like Frank Kravetzs, who attended just enough college to learn the engineering he needed to enter the field and make a nice career at Westinghouse after the war. Folks like Frank and Blake got more education in four semesters than youngsters today get in four years (or six years). Karl Blake got the education to enter medicine and launch a long, productive career in general and specialized surgery. He got the education post-war America needed. He credits programs like V-1, V12, and ASTP, which he views as unusually far-sighted in planning. Dr. Karl E. Blake never planted a flag at Iwo Jima or stormed the beaches of Normandy. He did nothing dramatic, but he did do something extremely important, as did thousands of Americans like him who fought the battle for post-war civilized society. Blakes wartime training allowed him to save numerous lives after the war, far more than he might have saved in combat. Is there a Karl Blake in your family, on your street, at your church? Talk to him or her. Record the story. Get it on-record. As Dr. Blake says, Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it.Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science at Grove City College and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values. His books include The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism and his latest release, Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. GUESTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why blame Obama?Why is President Obama being blamed for the bad economy that was started during the Bush years? Where were all of the job creators during this period that House Speaker John Boehner keeps talking about and who also didnt create jobs during the Bush or Obama years? Speaker Boehner says we have a spending problem that started during the last couple of years that is bringing this country down. This country was on the brink of disaster because of two foreign wars created by the Bush administration. Boehner was in a position of responsibility during all of these years and has voted to bankrupt this country and he still claims that Obama is the cause of jobless Americans. The Republicans also claim that Obama is creating class warfare on the rich by asking that they pay the same percentage of income tax that they paid during the Clinton years. The Republicans remember how bad the Clinton years were but forget that the United States was not only paying down the deficit they were also expanding employment opportunities for Americans. How can the Republicans be proud of their actions in voting down every jobs bill that the president has proposed that would have given jobs to teachers, policemen, firemen and building contractors. Why is there so much grandstanding and back slapping going on by the Republicans who havent found a camera or microphone that they didnt like. You would think that they would use these opportunities to create jobs rather than their own self promotion. Jerry Segovis OTOWAmericas first National AnthemIve written a number of articles to the Citizen, most of which have been to complain about an injustice or to solve a problem affecting all of us. But, this time its to ask a simple question. How many of you out there know what the title of our first National Anthem might be. If you do let me know through your letters to the Citizen. Its one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written and music being my major in college, I should know. It was written by the first professional musician in the United States. He was born in 1746 and died in 1800. A true patriot who wrote many pieces of great music during the Revolution. His name is William Billings and the first National Anthem was CHESTER. Go to YouTube or Google chrome and you will find it. Im for going back to Chester.

About six out of 10 people with lung cancer die within a year of being diagnosed, and the expected five-year survival rate for people with lung cancer is just 16 percent. These numbers are frightening, yet its estimated that over 43 million Americans are current smokers. There are many researchers, physicians, pharmacists and other healthcare providers who are dedicated to finding better ways to diagnose and treat lung cancer, and there are many studies in progress right now that offer hope to patients battling the disease and their families. But the fact remainsthe best way to defeat lung cancer is to prevent it. So, please help in the fight against lung cancer by quitting smoking, encouraging your friends, family and neighbors to quit smoking, and speaking with your children about not smoking. By reducing the number of people who smoke, we will ultimately reduce the number of lung cancer deaths each year. Hayley Creasey, RN Ocala Oncology Liaison Bruce Mozert, inventor of the underwater camera housing and photographer of all the major swimming stars of the 1930s and 1940s for MGM and other studios, will be our speaker at the next Photography Club meeting. Mozert is 94 years old and still works in his studio near Silver Springs five day per week. He sells hand colored prints from those old negatives. He can tell us how he produced smoke and champagne bubbles under water! He can explain how he produced color prints before color film existed. This will be a fascinating program which will be of interest to almost everyone. All Oak Run residents are invited to this program at the Orchid Club on Monday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. We are sorry, but we have to restrict this program to Oak Run residents only. You can read Mr. Mozerts biography and see some of his photos at http://www.divephotoguide.com/user/bruc emozert/. He currently has photos on Smithsonion.com and in three Florida museums.

Iwas reminded recently that the only thing growing in my family tree are fruits and nuts. Personally, I am not sure if I am a fruit or a nut. Just do not ask my wife. I had been away for so long I had forgotten many things about my family. My recent visit served as a refresher course reminding me why I had moved away in the first place. Memory sometimes pays little tricks causing us to remember the good old days and forgetting that sprinkled in among the good are ample portions of what I call good-challenged moments and characters. I cannot speak about anybody elses family; my family seems to run the gamut between good and bad. I certainly have some wonderful relatives but then, I also have those who are on the other side of that description. Overall, they serve to make my family what it is today. I enjoyed visiting with some of my relatives I had not seen for years. In fact, I could not remember the last time I had seen some of them. For the most part, it was a wonderful time of family reunion. I had really forgotten about good old Aunt Bessie. She has always been one of my favorite aunts. Nobody knows how old she really is, and she aint telling. Conferring with some of my older relatives none could remember a time when good old Aunt Bessie was not around. Some of us have guessed her age and we figure she is probably our oldest living relative. One of the oddities about good old Aunt Bessie has to do with her physical appearance. As far as anybody could remember, she was always consumed with her looks. Not just her clothing but her face as well. The one thing that was anathema to her was a wrinkle. She has what we all said behind her back, a wrinkle-phobia. If I had the money she spent on wrinkle creams I could retire and live a life of luxury. I do remember a time (and I had forgotten it until now and I just hoped she did) when I was not Aunt Bessies favorite nephew. It was years ago and I had not seen her for a while and when I did see her, I said, half jokingly, Is that a new wrinkle, Aunt Bessie? You would have thought I had shot her only child. She shrieked and then went to the bathroom to examine her face. She was so irate with me that she did not speak to me for over a year. Of course, looking back, there was no downside to that. I was tempted to remind her of that incident, but I remembered the old hymn, Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin. Then there was Uncle Harold. I had not seen him for I cannot remember how long. When I saw him, I noticed he had not changed. I think he was wearing the same suspenders he wore the last time I saw him. His suspenders were a fashion statement, according to him, but nobody knew exactly what they were saying. The great thing about Uncle Howard was his stories. He had a repertoire of stories that he repeated ad nauseam. Behind his back we often said, Uncle Howard will tell no stories he hasnt told a thousand times before. Probably the most amusing thing about his stories was the fact that he often confused the punchline of one-story with the punchline of another story. None of his punchlines ever went with the story. That made them even funnier. We laughed, he thought we were laughing at his story, we were really laughing at him. Just before I was ready to leave, who should come in but dear old Aunt Sylvia. As soon as I saw her, I smiled. Not only was I glad to see her, but I remembered her. If anybody was the cats meow, it was Aunt Sylvia. She loved to go out to eat, particularly with a group. I thought of the last time we all went out to eat together and Aunt Sylvia was with us. One of her peculiarities was along the line of tipping the waitress. She was the self-appointed guru of making sure the waitress got a good tip. When everybody finished eating and the bill had come, Aunt Sylvia would take charge. She would collect money from each person for the tip. If you did not give enough, she made you dig into your pocket again until you came up with an amount she was happy with to give to the waitress. With appropriate pomp and circumstance, she would call the waitress over to our table and present her with the tip of the evening. As I was flying home, a thought tugged at my mind; if the world is made up of such people like my relatives, what chance does the world really have? The world, as God has designed it, is made up of all kinds of people that He loves with an everlasting love. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). Thinking of my family on the plane coming home I thought, why am I the only sane person in my family? Then another thought emerged. Or, am I?The Rev. James L.

Compiled by Alan Gold HOW THEY VOTED Read the classifieds In this latest Grisham novel the author works in a new kink to an old formula. His unlikely hero is David Zinc, Harvard grad and at only 31 a thoroughly burned out young lawyer. One morning he wigs out on the 93rd floor of his prestigious Chicago law firm and bolts. When the elevator began its descent, David Zinc started to laugh. The spinning and nausea were gone. The pressure on his chest vanished. He was doing it! He was leaving the sweatshop of Rogan Rothberg and saying farewell to the nightmare. He, David Zinc, of all the thousands of miserable associates and junior partners in the tall buildings of downtown Chicago, he and he alone had found the spine to walk away that gloomy morning. He heads for a bar and after drinking all day ends Novel is not vintage Grisham material BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington up on seedy Preston Avenue in the office of Finley & Figg, a two-lawyer firm specializing in DUIs, car wrecks, and cheap divorces. Drunk and disorderly, Zinc insists he wants to be hired by ambulance chasers Oscar Finley and Wally Figg. Caught off guard, they take him in. Though consigned to a dusty attic for an office, Zinc couldnt be happier. Hes home every night for dinner and now that hes relaxed and available for sex instead of crashing after a 90-hour week, he soon impregnates his pretty wife Helen. Meanwhile, recovering alcoholic Wally Figg is on another of his get-richquick schemes. This time hes putting together a mass tort suit aimed at a Big Pharma company that makes Krayoxx, a cholesterol-lowering drug. As a result of his routine visits to funeral homes hes discovered that among the deceased several had been taking Krayoxx. Oscar Finley is dismissive of the idea and David is skeptical but Wally, undeterred, forges ahead. If you think you know where this is heading, you may be right, but then again you may be wrong. In any case, although the novel is comic and readable, its not vintage Grisham. Except for Wally and Oscar, the characters are flat. And we only see flashes of the old Grisham in some of the court scenes.

Williams St. Dunnellon. Billboard Magazine called her the act to watch, taking up the road Carole King, Janis Ian and Joni Mitchell have trod. Amy Carol Webb songs have won first place in several international song competitions. Amy Carol Webb defined, is beloved song weaver. She is passionate, powerful, and poignant. Shes the girl next door and no ordinary woman. She got her first guitar a used Harmony gut-string Christmas day, age 11 and taught herself Red River Valley before nightfall. By 14, she was writing and playing music at hometown events, studying works from a remarkably diverse palette of artists Guthrie to Gershwin, Leonard Cohen to Leonard Bernstein, Bonnie Raitt to Beverly Sills then graduated college with a degree in performing arts and hit the road from the lower 48 states to Japan, Canada and Mexico to launch her own music career. After taking a break to bring two sons into the world, she burst back onto the acoustic music scene in 1995.

If you are planning on attending, any remaining tickets will be available Nov. 14, 16, and 18 at 8:30 a.m. in the H&R Ballroom. OTOW Softball LeagueThe winter softball league at the OTOW field is off and running, playing every Monday and Wednesday morning. The teams are all set, and members wish to thank their sponsors: Wiseway Auto; Dr. Dunn (dentist); Celbert Wealth Financials; TeePee Tire; and their newest sponsors, Great Clips and Florida Eye. Through these sponsorships, the league has been able to buy hats and shirts for all team members. Some new residents have joined the League and are beginning to display their skills! The excitement is in the air as the teams battle their foes in hopes of becoming the victors of the game. The days of old are in the players eyes as one sees them strut up to the plate in hopes of blasting the ball. That feeling of excitement as they swing and hit that ball and watch it fall, and as they hope to get on and run the bases is evident. The new players may be a little rusty, but anyone can see they still have the joy of the game in them. Its that joy of the game that brings them out week after week. Seeing them hustle around the bases and recognizing the enjoyment they out when they cross home plate is a wonderful thing, but its not all there is to it. Its not so much about winning or losing, but rather, its about the exercise, the enjoyment of the game and, most important, the friendships that are developed. While there is always the desire to win, all are winners because the game brings the players back to the yesteryears of their youth.

Today is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor Americas veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Our parade down Pun Alley starts with a twentyone-pun salute to honor our veterans. Young Stan told his father that when he grew up he wanted to drive a big Army tank. Well, son, said his dad, if thats what you want to do, I wont stand in your way. People who hate the Marines are rotten to the corps. One young soldier destroyed five bridges, blew up an ammo dump, and wiped out an important military installation. Fortunately, after that they sent him overseas. When William joined the army he disliked the phrase fire at will. If people think that old soldiers just fade away, they ought to try to get into an old army uniform. What shall we do, sir? The enemy are as thick as peas. Shell them, of course! A new recruit couldnt understand why they called him private. He slept in a room with 80 other guys. He stared at his belly button so much, he was promoted to Navel Officer. An ex-sailor prefers to forget the days he spent playing cards in submarines, dismissing them as so much bridge under the water. How can any place be good where the bed is a bunk and the kitchen is a mess? A woman was in love with 20 soldiers. It was platoonic. You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they cant keep their heads above water. The overweight fighter pilot was grounded for violating the rules of engorgement. An artist with the military kept drawing enemy fire. At first the paratroops didnt obey orders, but finally they fell in line. He was to carry two flags in the parade, but decided that would be a double standard. A chaplain on the sea leads the soldiers in their warship. My dentist served in the Army. Of course he was a Drill Sergeant. A soldier who stuffed himself with ice cream was a desserter. Have you swabbed the decks and polished the brass? Yes, sir. And when nobody was looking, I took out my binoculars and swept the horizon. Must be rightNew Recruit: My names Wright and you spelled it wrong twice. Two wrongs dont make a right. Company Clerk: Thats right. New Recruit: But its wrong. Clerk: If its wrong, it cant be right. New Recruit: You dont understand. My names Wright. Clerk: How do you write it, Wright? New Recruit: Thats not right. Clerk: Then you dont write it right? New Recruit: Right. Clerk: Next! Let downThe paratroopers were practicing in backwoods Tennessee. One jumper was close to the property of an old mountain man and his very large family. One of the kids saw the chute floating down and yelled out, Pa, get your shotgun; the stork is bringing them full-grown now!No loafingThe troops were complaining that the messs bread was too hard to eat. The officer in charge said, If Napoleons troops had that bread, theyd have eaten it down to the last crumb. A soldier replied, I believe that, sir. But it was fresh then.Goodtime CharleyCharley, a new retiree greeter at Walmart, was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, and sharp minded. But he just couldnt get to work on time. Every day he was five, 10, sometimes 15 minutes late. Finally, the boss called him into the office for a talk. Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a great job, but your being late so often is quite bothersome. Yes, I know, boss, and I am working on it. Well good, you are a team player. Thats what I like to hear. Its odd though; youre coming in late. I know youre retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say if you came in late there? They usually said, Good morning, General. Tea or coffee this morning, sir?Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Taking a Veterans Day parade down Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com In a revealing study released this morning by the National Federation of Independent Business Research Foundation, the effects of the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) prove to be devastating to Florida, with at least 2,800 lost jobs and a $3.5 billion reduction in sales in 2021. The research found that 61 percent of lost jobs and 49 percent of lost sales would be borne by small businesses. The study further demonstrates the need to repeal the HIT, before it goes into effect in 2014, in order to help alleviate the crisis of confidence among the nations small business community and provide more economic certainty. The Stop The HIT Coalition issued the following Statement: This study is some of the most conclusive evidence, to date, that the HIT will be a crushing blow to small businesses as they try to stay afloat, create jobs and pull this economy out of the doldrums. Small businesses are the job creating engine for our economy, but this impending tax is already stopping them dead in their tracks. Members of Congress must take action and repeal the HIT before any further damage is done. The study included key national findings that as a result of the HIT: Increased employer costs would reduce private sector employment by between 125,000 and 249,000 jobs in 2021. Roughly 59 percent of these job losses will occur at small businesses. The tax would reduce U.S. real output (sales) in 2021 by between $18 billion and $30 billion. Approximately half of these lost sales would have been sales made by small businesses. The Health Insurance Tax (HIT), part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed into law last year and going into effect in 2014, raises a total of $87 billion in the first ten years and $208 billion in the second ten year. The BSIM (Business Size Impact Module) is a dynamic, multi-region forecasting model that analyzes the impact of policy shocks on the economy.

FROM E Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Why dont more states mandate deposits on beverage bottles as incentives for people to return them? Most bottles Ive seen only list a few states on them. -Alan Wu, Cary, NC So-called bottle bills, otherwise known as container recycling laws, mandate that certain types of beverage containers require a small deposit (usually five or ten cents) at checkout beyond the price of the beverage itself. Customers can return the empty containers later and reclaim their nickels and dimes. The idea is to provide a financial incentive for consumers to recycle and to force industry to re-use the raw materials. According to the Container Recycling Institute (CRI), a California-based non-profit which encourages the collection and recycling of packaging materials (and runs the website BottleBill.org), the benefits of bottle bills include: supplying recyclable materials for a high-demand market; conserving energy, natural resources and landfill space; creating new businesses and green jobs; and reducing waste disposal costs and litter. The 10 U.S. states that currently have container recycling laws recycle at least 70 percent of their bottles and cans; this amounts to a recycling rate 2.5 times higher than in states without bottle bills. Beverage containers make up a whopping 5.6 percent of the overall U.S. waste stream, so every bottle and can that gets recycled counts toward freeing up landfill space. And CRI reports that beverage containers account for some 20 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from landfilling municipal solid waste and replacing the wasted products with new ones made from virgin feedstock. So by promoting more recycling, bottle bills indirectly reduce our carbon footprints. The 10 U.S. states with bottle bills are California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon and Vermont. Delawares legislature repealed its bottle bill after almost three decades on the books last year as the states bottle recycling rate had dropped to just 12 percent due to more and more retailers refusing to deal with the hassle of accepting returned containers. In place of its bottle bill, Delaware enacted a $0.04/bottle recycling fee that will help defray the costs of starting up a curbside recycling pickup system to service the entire state. We are extremely disappointed they chose to repeal their law, rather than enforce it, reported CRIs Susan Collins, adding that the new fee places a burden on consumers only. Consumers will be subsidizing the producers and that is unfair. CRI supports extended producer responsibility where producers and consumers together pay for the life cycle costs of product packaging. Beyond Delaware, the main reason bottle bills havent caught on is because of opposition to them by the beverage industry, which doesnt want to bear the costs of recycling and claims that the extra nickel or dime on the initial cost of the beverage is enough to turn potential customers away. The U.S. Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) found that the beverage industry and its representatives spent about $14 million in campaign contributions aimed at defeating a national bottle bill between 1989 and 1994. Meanwhile, members of a Senate committee who voted against national bottle bill legislation in 1992 received some 75 times more in beverage-industry PAC money than those who voted in favor of the bill.CONTACTS: Container Recycling Institute, www.containerrecycling.org; USPIRG, www.uspirg.org.Dear EarthTalk: Most gold mining operations use cyanide to extract gold from surrounding rock. What are the environmental implications of this, and are there alternatives? -J. Pelton, via email Although cyanidationthe use of a sodium cyanide compound to separate a precious metal from finely ground rock has become less common in other forms of mining, it is still the dominant practice in gold mining. Some 90 percent of gold mines around the world employ cyanidation to harvest their loot. In gold mining, a diluted cyanide solution is sprayed on crushed ore that is placed in piles or mixed with ore in enclosed vats, reports the State Environmental Resource Center (SERC), a project of the non-profit Defenders of Wildlife. The cyanide attaches to minute particles of gold to form a water-soluble, goldcyanide compound from which the gold can be recovered. But of course not all the cyanide gets recovered. Some of it gets spilled, and some is left within mine waste that is often buried underground woefully close to groundwater, leaving neighbors and public health officials worried about its effects on drinking water and on surrounding ecosystems and local wildlife. Mining and regulatory documents often state that cyanide in water rapidly breaks down in the presence of sunlight into largely harmless substances, such as carbon dioxide and nitrate or ammonia, reports Earthworks, a Washington, DC-based non-profit. However, cyanide also tends to react readily with many other chemical elements and is known to form, at a minimum, hundreds of different compounds. While many of these compounds are less toxic than the original cyanide, says Earthworks, they can still persist in the environment and accumulate in fish and plant tissues, wreaking havoc on up the food chain. In 2000, a breach in a tailings (mining waste) dam at a gold mine in Baia Mare, Romania resulted in the release of 100,000 cubic meters of cyanide-rich waste into the surrounding watershed. Nearly all aquatic life in nearby waters died, while drinking water supplies were cut off for some 2.5 million people. In the wake of this accident, gold miners around the world have been taking steps to deal with tailings in a safer manner, through the use of special systems designed to prevent cyanide or its breakdown compounds from escaping into the environment. But such precautions at present are only voluntary. Regulators in the U.S.the third largest gold producer after South Africa and Australia dont require mine operators to monitor cyanide and its breakdown compounds in nearby groundwater and water bodies, so no one knows just how big a problem might be. One promising alternative to using cyanide in gold mines is the Haber Gold Process, a non-toxic extraction system that tests have shown can result in more gold recovery over a shorter period than cyanidation.

But with cyanidation well-entrenched in the industry and regulators looking the other way, these alternatives face an uphill battle in gaining widespread adoption.

Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone later this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications Barry Bowman said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our co-op to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. In a related development, J.D. Power and Associates recently did its own nationwide survey of customer satisfaction with electric utilities. Their survey ranked SECO as the highest in customer satisfaction of all the utilities in Florida both large and small. In fact, the co-op had one of the highest scores for utilities located anywhere in the South.

The Centers has once again earned The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commissions state-of-the-art national standards for quality and safety in behavioral health care. The Centers underwent a rigorous on-site survey conducted by a Joint Commission expert surveyor. She expressed on numerous occasions how impressed she was with the agency, the care provided, and the staff. Upon completion she stated that in all her years with The Joint Commission, she would consider The Centers to be one of the top two facilities in the country she has surveyed. The recent renewal of the Joint Commission Accreditation serves to provide indisputable evidence of the commitment, dedication and excellence that the staff of The Centers offers to the communities of Marion and Citrus Counties. Such commitment ensures that every consumer receives the highest quality treatment in a benevolent environment that promotes growth and healing. It is a standard we have set for ourselves and will continue, said Diane Daniels, Clinical Director. The Centers, a private, non-profit behavioral health care organization, has been serving Marion and Citrus Counties for more than 39 years. With four locations in Marion County and three in Citrus County, it is one of the top 10 employers supporting more than 560 trained professionals. Housing a 57bed acute care facility (Children and Adult Crisis Stabilization Units and Adult Psychiatric Hospital), 50-bed adult and 15bed adolescent residential substance abuse treatment facilities, The Centers is saving lives everyday. In partnership with Kids Central, Inc., The Centers also provides case management and crisis response services for children and families in Circuit 5. Furthermore, through its partnerships with local schools, law enforcement, and childrens services, the Centers provides vital community outreach, prevention, and intervention programs for thousands more. In fact, one out of every 15 individuals in our community directly benefits from The Centers services every year. Our goal is to help people become as independent as possible, but also to serve as a continual means of support, every step of the way, and throughout ones entire life, said Russell Rasco, CEO, who is retiring Nov. 14 after 33 years. The main number for The Centers is 352-2915555. The 24-hour crisis line is 352-629-9595. Mark your calendar for Saturday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert directed by Floyd Hickman. The program will contain 13 seasonal selections: secular and sacred, traditional and contemporary. The chorus is composed of Marion Landing residents who spend many weeks practicing and perfecting songs for the concert. The Holiday Concert will feature three guest soloists: Erica Goodman, a St. Leo University student and violinist who is a member of the Villages Community Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lake Sumter Chamber Orchestra; pianist Diane Hartley, a Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary School music teacher, 2010-11 Teacher of the Year and Golden Apple finalist; and pianist Naoko Wicklein, a Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary School music teacher and pianist at our 2007 Holiday Concert. Tickets for the concert are $5 and are available during Tuesday morning socials or in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. Tickets will be available to the general public the week before the concert as well as at the door. Volunteer recognitionThe Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Program had recently been modified so it could include many residents who have made significant contributions to the community in the past, even though they do not currently participate. At the Nov. 1 Homeowner Forum, Board Treasurer John Moran commended such a resident. He recognized Shirley Seckman as a person who volunteered to gather information and launch the communitys first quarterly newsletter back in the late 80s called Happy Landings. Through a number of starts and stops, this idea eventually evolved into our current community newsletter, the Communicator, a monthly publication of which Shirley was our first editor. In his presentation, John said, Our volunteer (Shirley) had built the foundation and organization of what we now look forward to receiving and reading on a monthly basis: the Marion Landing Communicator. Marion Landing thanks you for all your hard work and contributions. Shirley was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Certificate, and her engraved plaque will be added to the more than 140 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center.Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Landing Lites Holiday Concert will be held on Dec. 3 MARION LANDING D BDiane Bress PHOTO BY DIANE BRESSVolunteer Shirley Seckman receives Volunteer Recognition Certificate from Board Treasurer John Moran.

Ask if you are eligible to donate via ALYX, the state-of-the art automated blood collection system, allowing you to safely and comfortably donate two units of red cells in just one visit. Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. But did you know that donating blood can also benefit your own health? Studies have shown that donating blood regularly can be beneficial for the heart and circulatory system and can reduce the risk of heart diseases. Besides, blood donation also burns extra calories and reduces your cholesterol level.

The Centers has once again earned The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commissions state-of-the-art national standards for quality and safety in behavioral health care. The Centers underwent a rigorous on-site survey conducted by a Joint Commission expert surveyor. She expressed on numerous occasions how impressed she was with the agency, the care provided, and the staff. Upon completion she stated that in all her years with The Joint Commission, she would consider The Centers to be one of the top two facilities in the country she has surveyed. The recent renewal of the Joint Commission Accreditation serves to provide indisputable evidence of the commitment, dedication and excellence that the staff of The Centers offers to the communities of Marion and Citrus Counties. Such commitment ensures that every consumer receives the highest quality treatment in a benevolent environment that promotes growth and healing. It is a standard we have set for ourselves and will continue, said Diane Daniels, Clinical Director. The Centers, a private, non-profit behavioral health care organization, has been serving Marion and Citrus Counties for more than 39 years. With four locations in Marion County and three in Citrus County, it is one of the top 10 employers supporting more than 560 trained professionals. Housing a 57bed acute care facility (Children and Adult Crisis Stabilization Units and Adult Psychiatric Hospital), 50-bed adult and 15bed adolescent residential substance abuse treatment facilities, The Centers is saving lives everyday. In partnership with Kids Central, Inc., The Centers also provides case management and crisis response services for children and families in Circuit 5. Furthermore, through its partnerships with local schools, law enforcement, and childrens services, the Centers provides vital community outreach, prevention, and intervention programs for thousands more. In fact, one out of every 15 individuals in our community directly benefits from The Centers services every year. Our goal is to help people become as independent as possible, but also to serve as a continual means of support, every step of the way, and throughout ones entire life, said Russell Rasco, CEO, who is retiring Nov. 14 after 33 years. The main number for The Centers is 352-2915555. The 24-hour crisis line is 352-629-9595. Mark your calendar for Saturday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert directed by Floyd Hickman. The program will contain 13 seasonal selections: secular and sacred, traditional and contemporary. The chorus is composed of Marion Landing residents who spend many weeks practicing and perfecting songs for the concert. The Holiday Concert will feature three guest soloists: Erica Goodman, a St. Leo University student and violinist who is a member of the Villages Community Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lake Sumter Chamber Orchestra; pianist Diane Hartley, a Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary School music teacher, 2010-11 Teacher of the Year and Golden Apple finalist; and pianist Naoko Wicklein, a Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary School music teacher and pianist at our 2007 Holiday Concert. Tickets for the concert are $5 and are available during Tuesday morning socials or in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. Tickets will be available to the general public the week before the concert as well as at the door. Volunteer recognitionThe Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Program had recently been modified so it could include many residents who have made significant contributions to the community in the past, even though they do not currently participate. At the Nov. 1 Homeowner Forum, Board Treasurer John Moran commended such a resident. He recognized Shirley Seckman as a person who volunteered to gather information and launch the communitys first quarterly newsletter back in the late 80s called Happy Landings. Through a number of starts and stops, this idea eventually evolved into our current community newsletter, the Communicator, a monthly publication of which Shirley was our first editor. In his presentation, John said, Our volunteer (Shirley) had built the foundation and organization of what we now look forward to receiving and reading on a monthly basis: the Marion Landing Communicator. Marion Landing thanks you for all your hard work and contributions. Shirley was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Certificate, and her engraved plaque will be added to the more than 140 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center.Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Landing Lites Holiday Concert will be held on Dec. 3 MARION LANDING D BDiane Bress PHOTO BY DIANE BRESSVolunteer Shirley Seckman receives Volunteer Recognition Certificate from Board Treasurer John Moran.

FROM E Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Why dont more states mandate deposits on beverage bottles as incentives for people to return them? Most bottles Ive seen only list a few states on them. -Alan Wu, Cary, NC So-called bottle bills, otherwise known as container recycling laws, mandate that certain types of beverage containers require a small deposit (usually five or ten cents) at checkout beyond the price of the beverage itself. Customers can return the empty containers later and reclaim their nickels and dimes. The idea is to provide a financial incentive for consumers to recycle and to force industry to re-use the raw materials. According to the Container Recycling Institute (CRI), a California-based non-profit which encourages the collection and recycling of packaging materials (and runs the website BottleBill.org), the benefits of bottle bills include: supplying recyclable materials for a high-demand market; conserving energy, natural resources and landfill space; creating new businesses and green jobs; and reducing waste disposal costs and litter. The 10 U.S. states that currently have container recycling laws recycle at least 70 percent of their bottles and cans; this amounts to a recycling rate 2.5 times higher than in states without bottle bills. Beverage containers make up a whopping 5.6 percent of the overall U.S. waste stream, so every bottle and can that gets recycled counts toward freeing up landfill space. And CRI reports that beverage containers account for some 20 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from landfilling municipal solid waste and replacing the wasted products with new ones made from virgin feedstock. So by promoting more recycling, bottle bills indirectly reduce our carbon footprints. The 10 U.S. states with bottle bills are California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon and Vermont. Delawares legislature repealed its bottle bill after almost three decades on the books last year as the states bottle recycling rate had dropped to just 12 percent due to more and more retailers refusing to deal with the hassle of accepting returned containers. In place of its bottle bill, Delaware enacted a $0.04/bottle recycling fee that will help defray the costs of starting up a curbside recycling pickup system to service the entire state. We are extremely disappointed they chose to repeal their law, rather than enforce it, reported CRIs Susan Collins, adding that the new fee places a burden on consumers only. Consumers will be subsidizing the producers and that is unfair. CRI supports extended producer responsibility where producers and consumers together pay for the life cycle costs of product packaging. Beyond Delaware, the main reason bottle bills havent caught on is because of opposition to them by the beverage industry, which doesnt want to bear the costs of recycling and claims that the extra nickel or dime on the initial cost of the beverage is enough to turn potential customers away. The U.S. Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) found that the beverage industry and its representatives spent about $14 million in campaign contributions aimed at defeating a national bottle bill between 1989 and 1994. Meanwhile, members of a Senate committee who voted against national bottle bill legislation in 1992 received some 75 times more in beverage-industry PAC money than those who voted in favor of the bill.CONTACTS: Container Recycling Institute, www.containerrecycling.org; USPIRG, www.uspirg.org.Dear EarthTalk: Most gold mining operations use cyanide to extract gold from surrounding rock. What are the environmental implications of this, and are there alternatives? -J. Pelton, via email Although cyanidationthe use of a sodium cyanide compound to separate a precious metal from finely ground rock has become less common in other forms of mining, it is still the dominant practice in gold mining. Some 90 percent of gold mines around the world employ cyanidation to harvest their loot. In gold mining, a diluted cyanide solution is sprayed on crushed ore that is placed in piles or mixed with ore in enclosed vats, reports the State Environmental Resource Center (SERC), a project of the non-profit Defenders of Wildlife. The cyanide attaches to minute particles of gold to form a water-soluble, goldcyanide compound from which the gold can be recovered. But of course not all the cyanide gets recovered. Some of it gets spilled, and some is left within mine waste that is often buried underground woefully close to groundwater, leaving neighbors and public health officials worried about its effects on drinking water and on surrounding ecosystems and local wildlife. Mining and regulatory documents often state that cyanide in water rapidly breaks down in the presence of sunlight into largely harmless substances, such as carbon dioxide and nitrate or ammonia, reports Earthworks, a Washington, DC-based non-profit. However, cyanide also tends to react readily with many other chemical elements and is known to form, at a minimum, hundreds of different compounds. While many of these compounds are less toxic than the original cyanide, says Earthworks, they can still persist in the environment and accumulate in fish and plant tissues, wreaking havoc on up the food chain. In 2000, a breach in a tailings (mining waste) dam at a gold mine in Baia Mare, Romania resulted in the release of 100,000 cubic meters of cyanide-rich waste into the surrounding watershed. Nearly all aquatic life in nearby waters died, while drinking water supplies were cut off for some 2.5 million people. In the wake of this accident, gold miners around the world have been taking steps to deal with tailings in a safer manner, through the use of special systems designed to prevent cyanide or its breakdown compounds from escaping into the environment. But such precautions at present are only voluntary. Regulators in the U.S.the third largest gold producer after South Africa and Australia dont require mine operators to monitor cyanide and its breakdown compounds in nearby groundwater and water bodies, so no one knows just how big a problem might be. One promising alternative to using cyanide in gold mines is the Haber Gold Process, a non-toxic extraction system that tests have shown can result in more gold recovery over a shorter period than cyanidation. Another alternative is YES Technologies biocatalyzed leaching process which proponents say is 200 times less toxic than cyanide. But with cyanidation well-entrenched in the industry and regulators looking the other way, these alternatives face an uphill battle in gaining widespread adoption.

Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone later this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications Barry Bowman said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our co-op to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. In a related development, J.D. Power and Associates recently did its own nationwide survey of customer satisfaction with electric utilities. Their survey ranked SECO as the highest in customer satisfaction of all the utilities in Florida both large and small. In fact, the co-op had one of the highest scores for utilities located anywhere in the South.

Today is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor Americas veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Our parade down Pun Alley starts with a twentyone-pun salute to honor our veterans. Young Stan told his father that when he grew up he wanted to drive a big Army tank. Well, son, said his dad, if thats what you want to do, I wont stand in your way. People who hate the Marines are rotten to the corps. One young soldier destroyed five bridges, blew up an ammo dump, and wiped out an important military installation. Fortunately, after that they sent him overseas. When William joined the army he disliked the phrase fire at will. If people think that old soldiers just fade away, they ought to try to get into an old army uniform. What shall we do, sir? The enemy are as thick as peas. Shell them, of course! A new recruit couldnt understand why they called him private. He slept in a room with 80 other guys. He stared at his belly button so much, he was promoted to Navel Officer. An ex-sailor prefers to forget the days he spent playing cards in submarines, dismissing them as so much bridge under the water. How can any place be good where the bed is a bunk and the kitchen is a mess? A woman was in love with 20 soldiers. It was platoonic. You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they cant keep their heads above water. The overweight fighter pilot was grounded for violating the rules of engorgement. An artist with the military kept drawing enemy fire. At first the paratroops didnt obey orders, but finally they fell in line. He was to carry two flags in the parade, but decided that would be a double standard. A chaplain on the sea leads the soldiers in their warship. My dentist served in the Army. Of course he was a Drill Sergeant. A soldier who stuffed himself with ice cream was a desserter. Have you swabbed the decks and polished the brass? Yes, sir. And when nobody was looking, I took out my binoculars and swept the horizon. Must be rightNew Recruit: My names Wright and you spelled it wrong twice. Two wrongs dont make a right. Company Clerk: Thats right. New Recruit: But its wrong. Clerk: If its wrong, it cant be right. New Recruit: You dont understand. My names Wright. Clerk: How do you write it, Wright? New Recruit: Thats not right. Clerk: Then you dont write it right? New Recruit: Right. Clerk: Next! Let downThe paratroopers were practicing in backwoods Tennessee. One jumper was close to the property of an old mountain man and his very large family. One of the kids saw the chute floating down and yelled out, Pa, get your shotgun; the stork is bringing them full-grown now!No loafingThe troops were complaining that the messs bread was too hard to eat. The officer in charge said, If Napoleons troops had that bread, theyd have eaten it down to the last crumb. A soldier replied, I believe that, sir. But it was fresh then.Goodtime CharleyCharley, a new retiree greeter at Walmart, was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, and sharp minded. But he just couldnt get to work on time. Every day he was five, 10, sometimes 15 minutes late. Finally, the boss called him into the office for a talk. Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a great job, but your being late so often is quite bothersome. Yes, I know, boss, and I am working on it. Well good, you are a team player. Thats what I like to hear. Its odd though; youre coming in late. I know youre retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say if you came in late there? They usually said, Good morning, General. Tea or coffee this morning, sir?Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Taking a Veterans Day parade down Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com In a revealing study released this morning by the National Federation of Independent Business Research Foundation, the effects of the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) prove to be devastating to Florida, with at least 2,800 lost jobs and a $3.5 billion reduction in sales in 2021. The research found that 61 percent of lost jobs and 49 percent of lost sales would be borne by small businesses. The study further demonstrates the need to repeal the HIT, before it goes into effect in 2014, in order to help alleviate the crisis of confidence among the nations small business community and provide more economic certainty. The Stop The HIT Coalition issued the following Statement: This study is some of the most conclusive evidence, to date, that the HIT will be a crushing blow to small businesses as they try to stay afloat, create jobs and pull this economy out of the doldrums. Small businesses are the job creating engine for our economy, but this impending tax is already stopping them dead in their tracks. Members of Congress must take action and repeal the HIT before any further damage is done. The study included key national findings that as a result of the HIT: Increased employer costs would reduce private sector employment by between 125,000 and 249,000 jobs in 2021. Roughly 59 percent of these job losses will occur at small businesses. The tax would reduce U.S. real output (sales) in 2021 by between $18 billion and $30 billion. Approximately half of these lost sales would have been sales made by small businesses. The Health Insurance Tax (HIT), part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed into law last year and going into effect in 2014, raises a total of $87 billion in the first ten years and $208 billion in the second ten year. The BSIM (Business Size Impact Module) is a dynamic, multi-region forecasting model that analyzes the impact of policy shocks on the economy.

ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.comVeterans Day Memorial Service, a fundraiser, and sports mark this weeks OTOW Happenings.OTOW Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club will hold its Veterans Day Memorial Service on Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Health and Recreation Building. Please come out to show your respect as we remember all of our veterans who have given so much for our country! The OTOW Lions Club will hold an Italian dinner fundraiser on Sunday, Jan. 29, 4 p.m. in the H&R Ballroom. Sammys Restaurant will cater this event. The price is $12 per person, and the proceeds go to benefit the Interfaith and Childrens Backpack Program. Tickets will be sold from 8 to 10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the H& R Ballroom. This event is open to the public. Entertainment will be provided by George and Judy Karaoke plus more, and there will be a TV raffle, among other items. Reservations are required. Please contact any of the following people to make your reservation: Virginia 352-414-1696; Dawn 352-854-8314; or Sarah 352-4658291.OTOW Entertainment GroupThe OTOW Entertainment Groups show Christmas and a Whole Lot More will take place on Nov. 26.

If you are planning on attending, any remaining tickets will be available Nov. 14, 16, and 18 at 8:30 a.m. in the H&R Ballroom. OTOW Softball LeagueThe winter softball league at the OTOW field is off and running, playing every Monday and Wednesday morning. The teams are all set, and members wish to thank their sponsors: Wiseway Auto; Dr. Dunn (dentist); Celbert Wealth Financials; TeePee Tire; and their newest sponsors, Great Clips and Florida Eye. Through these sponsorships, the league has been able to buy hats and shirts for all team members. Some new residents have joined the League and are beginning to display their skills! The excitement is in the air as the teams battle their foes in hopes of becoming the victors of the game. The days of old are in the players eyes as one sees them strut up to the plate in hopes of blasting the ball. That feeling of excitement as they swing and hit that ball and watch it fall, and as they hope to get on and run the bases is evident. The new players may be a little rusty, but anyone can see they still have the joy of the game in them. Its that joy of the game that brings them out week after week. Seeing them hustle around the bases and recognizing the enjoyment they out when they cross home plate is a wonderful thing, but its not all there is to it. Its not so much about winning or losing, but rather, its about the exercise, the enjoyment of the game and, most important, the friendships that are developed. While there is always the desire to win, all are winners because the game brings the players back to the yesteryears of their youth. New players are always welcomed, so if interested, come on down and join the fun or join the spectators as they root for a favorite team or individual, The current standings, as of this writing, are: TeamWonLossTie 5 TeePee Tire-Ken52 4 Florida Eye Roger52 2 Great Clips Angelo43 3 Cebert Wealth Bill43 1 Dr. Dunn Marty241 6 Wiseway Jimmy061Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... 14~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com OTOW Lions to hold Veterans Day service at 10 a.m. OTOW HAPPENINGS The Central Florida Master Choir is proud to present its seasonal concert, Carols from Around the World.

Compiled by Alan Gold HOW THEY VOTED Read the classifieds In this latest Grisham novel the author works in a new kink to an old formula. His unlikely hero is David Zinc, Harvard grad and at only 31 a thoroughly burned out young lawyer. One morning he wigs out on the 93rd floor of his prestigious Chicago law firm and bolts. When the elevator began its descent, David Zinc started to laugh. The spinning and nausea were gone. The pressure on his chest vanished. He was doing it! He was leaving the sweatshop of Rogan Rothberg and saying farewell to the nightmare. He, David Zinc, of all the thousands of miserable associates and junior partners in the tall buildings of downtown Chicago, he and he alone had found the spine to walk away that gloomy morning. He heads for a bar and after drinking all day ends Novel is not vintage Grisham material BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington up on seedy Preston Avenue in the office of Finley & Figg, a two-lawyer firm specializing in DUIs, car wrecks, and cheap divorces. Drunk and disorderly, Zinc insists he wants to be hired by ambulance chasers Oscar Finley and Wally Figg. Caught off guard, they take him in. Though consigned to a dusty attic for an office, Zinc couldnt be happier. Hes home every night for dinner and now that hes relaxed and available for sex instead of crashing after a 90-hour week, he soon impregnates his pretty wife Helen. Meanwhile, recovering alcoholic Wally Figg is on another of his get-richquick schemes. This time hes putting together a mass tort suit aimed at a Big Pharma company that makes Krayoxx, a cholesterol-lowering drug. As a result of his routine visits to funeral homes hes discovered that among the deceased several had been taking Krayoxx. Oscar Finley is dismissive of the idea and David is skeptical but Wally, undeterred, forges ahead. If you think you know where this is heading, you may be right, but then again you may be wrong. In any case, although the novel is comic and readable, its not vintage Grisham. Except for Wally and Oscar, the characters are flat. And we only see flashes of the old Grisham in some of the court scenes.

Iwas reminded recently that the only thing growing in my family tree are fruits and nuts. Personally, I am not sure if I am a fruit or a nut. Just do not ask my wife. I had been away for so long I had forgotten many things about my family. My recent visit served as a refresher course reminding me why I had moved away in the first place. Memory sometimes pays little tricks causing us to remember the good old days and forgetting that sprinkled in among the good are ample portions of what I call good-challenged moments and characters. I cannot speak about anybody elses family; my family seems to run the gamut between good and bad. I certainly have some wonderful relatives but then, I also have those who are on the other side of that description. Overall, they serve to make my family what it is today. I enjoyed visiting with some of my relatives I had not seen for years. In fact, I could not remember the last time I had seen some of them. For the most part, it was a wonderful time of family reunion. I had really forgotten about good old Aunt Bessie. She has always been one of my favorite aunts. Nobody knows how old she really is, and she aint telling. Conferring with some of my older relatives none could remember a time when good old Aunt Bessie was not around. Some of us have guessed her age and we figure she is probably our oldest living relative. One of the oddities about good old Aunt Bessie has to do with her physical appearance. As far as anybody could remember, she was always consumed with her looks. Not just her clothing but her face as well. The one thing that was anathema to her was a wrinkle. She has what we all said behind her back, a wrinkle-phobia. If I had the money she spent on wrinkle creams I could retire and live a life of luxury. I do remember a time (and I had forgotten it until now and I just hoped she did) when I was not Aunt Bessies favorite nephew. It was years ago and I had not seen her for a while and when I did see her, I said, half jokingly, Is that a new wrinkle, Aunt Bessie? You would have thought I had shot her only child. She shrieked and then went to the bathroom to examine her face. She was so irate with me that she did not speak to me for over a year. Of course, looking back, there was no downside to that. I was tempted to remind her of that incident, but I remembered the old hymn, Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin. Then there was Uncle Harold. I had not seen him for I cannot remember how long. When I saw him, I noticed he had not changed. I think he was wearing the same suspenders he wore the last time I saw him. His suspenders were a fashion statement, according to him, but nobody knew exactly what they were saying. The great thing about Uncle Howard was his stories. He had a repertoire of stories that he repeated ad nauseam. Behind his back we often said, Uncle Howard will tell no stories he hasnt told a thousand times before. Probably the most amusing thing about his stories was the fact that he often confused the punchline of one-story with the punchline of another story. None of his punchlines ever went with the story. That made them even funnier. We laughed, he thought we were laughing at his story, we were really laughing at him. Just before I was ready to leave, who should come in but dear old Aunt Sylvia. As soon as I saw her, I smiled. Not only was I glad to see her, but I remembered her. If anybody was the cats meow, it was Aunt Sylvia. She loved to go out to eat, particularly with a group. I thought of the last time we all went out to eat together and Aunt Sylvia was with us. One of her peculiarities was along the line of tipping the waitress. She was the self-appointed guru of making sure the waitress got a good tip. When everybody finished eating and the bill had come, Aunt Sylvia would take charge. She would collect money from each person for the tip. If you did not give enough, she made you dig into your pocket again until you came up with an amount she was happy with to give to the waitress. With appropriate pomp and circumstance, she would call the waitress over to our table and present her with the tip of the evening. As I was flying home, a thought tugged at my mind; if the world is made up of such people like my relatives, what chance does the world really have? The world, as God has designed it, is made up of all kinds of people that He loves with an everlasting love. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). Thinking of my family on the plane coming home I thought, why am I the only sane person in my family? Then another thought emerged. Or, am I?The Rev. James L.

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com (ironically) of the Memorial Day Parade I had just attended. He went to Grove City College, where I teach, and then followed at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh, two outstanding medical schools. So, I said to Blake as I scribbled notes, bachelors at Grove City, and then masters at Penn and M.D. at Pitt? No, no, Blake replied. I never got a degree. Thats something else people dont understand. Back then, you did as much schooling as you could afford and needed. Thats how it went. Indeed. That, too, is something lost over the years. Today, for way too many students, college is a four-year partyactually, a six-year party. Its not about studying, training, honing a skill or the life of the mind. You have fun, buy a degree without, hopefully, losing your soul and parents hard-earned savings. Worse, its often a scandalous rip-off, as universities charge obscene prices for what they provide. Karl Blakes generation wouldnt dare waste a dime of that hard-earned money. Blake told me how he went to college for $87 per semester, scraping together a handful of semesters. His experience had been like Frank Kravetzs, who attended just enough college to learn the engineering he needed to enter the field and make a nice career at Westinghouse after the war. Folks like Frank and Blake got more education in four semesters than youngsters today get in four years (or six years). Karl Blake got the education to enter medicine and launch a long, productive career in general and specialized surgery. He got the education post-war America needed. He credits programs like V-1, V12, and ASTP, which he views as unusually far-sighted in planning. Dr. Karl E. Blake never planted a flag at Iwo Jima or stormed the beaches of Normandy. He did nothing dramatic, but he did do something extremely important, as did thousands of Americans like him who fought the battle for post-war civilized society. Blakes wartime training allowed him to save numerous lives after the war, far more than he might have saved in combat. Is there a Karl Blake in your family, on your street, at your church? Talk to him or her. Record the story. Get it on-record. As Dr. Blake says, Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it.Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science at Grove City College and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values. His books include The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism and his latest release, Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. GUESTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why blame Obama?Why is President Obama being blamed for the bad economy that was started during the Bush years? Where were all of the job creators during this period that House Speaker John Boehner keeps talking about and who also didnt create jobs during the Bush or Obama years? Speaker Boehner says we have a spending problem that started during the last couple of years that is bringing this country down. This country was on the brink of disaster because of two foreign wars created by the Bush administration. Boehner was in a position of responsibility during all of these years and has voted to bankrupt this country and he still claims that Obama is the cause of jobless Americans. The Republicans also claim that Obama is creating class warfare on the rich by asking that they pay the same percentage of income tax that they paid during the Clinton years. The Republicans remember how bad the Clinton years were but forget that the United States was not only paying down the deficit they were also expanding employment opportunities for Americans. How can the Republicans be proud of their actions in voting down every jobs bill that the president has proposed that would have given jobs to teachers, policemen, firemen and building contractors. Why is there so much grandstanding and back slapping going on by the Republicans who havent found a camera or microphone that they didnt like. You would think that they would use these opportunities to create jobs rather than their own self promotion. Jerry Segovis OTOWAmericas first National AnthemIve written a number of articles to the Citizen, most of which have been to complain about an injustice or to solve a problem affecting all of us. But, this time its to ask a simple question. How many of you out there know what the title of our first National Anthem might be. If you do let me know through your letters to the Citizen. Its one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written and music being my major in college, I should know. It was written by the first professional musician in the United States. He was born in 1746 and died in 1800. A true patriot who wrote many pieces of great music during the Revolution. His name is William Billings and the first National Anthem was CHESTER. Go to YouTube or Google chrome and you will find it. Im for going back to Chester. Bill Ford OcalaFundraiser thanksJulies Unique Hair Salon would like to thank our clients and the community for their support in our October fundraiser. We were able to raise $1,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Julies Unique Hair Salon 8530 S.W. 103rd. St. RoadBe aware of lung cancerNovember is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we dedicate ourselves to increasing awareness and knowledge of the issues surrounding lung cancer. The American Cancer Society (ACS) reports that nearly 85 percent of all lung cancer cases in the United States are smoking related and 30 percent of all cancer deaths. About six out of 10 people with lung cancer die within a year of being diagnosed, and the expected five-year survival rate for people with lung cancer is just 16 percent. These numbers are frightening, yet its estimated that over 43 million Americans are current smokers. There are many researchers, physicians, pharmacists and other healthcare providers who are dedicated to finding better ways to diagnose and treat lung cancer, and there are many studies in progress right now that offer hope to patients battling the disease and their families. But the fact remainsthe best way to defeat lung cancer is to prevent it. So, please help in the fight against lung cancer by quitting smoking, encouraging your friends, family and neighbors to quit smoking, and speaking with your children about not smoking. By reducing the number of people who smoke, we will ultimately reduce the number of lung cancer deaths each year. Hayley Creasey, RN Ocala Oncology Liaison Bruce Mozert, inventor of the underwater camera housing and photographer of all the major swimming stars of the 1930s and 1940s for MGM and other studios, will be our speaker at the next Photography Club meeting. Mozert is 94 years old and still works in his studio near Silver Springs five day per week. He sells hand colored prints from those old negatives. He can tell us how he produced smoke and champagne bubbles under water! He can explain how he produced color prints before color film existed. This will be a fascinating program which will be of interest to almost everyone. All Oak Run residents are invited to this program at the Orchid Club on Monday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. We are sorry, but we have to restrict this program to Oak Run residents only. You can read Mr. Mozerts biography and see some of his photos at http://www.divephotoguide.com/user/bruc emozert/. He currently has photos on Smithsonion.com and in three Florida museums. His work was featured at the Appleton recently.Friends of the LibraryAttention all Friends of the Library!

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the CitizenIt was nothing dramatic, says Dr. Karl E. Blake of Wexford, Pennsylvania, retired surgeon and member of the World War II generation, but it was important, and no one has written about it, at least that Ive seen. I got an unexpected call from Dr. Blake last Memorial Day, mid-afternoon, after just returning from the annual Memorial Day Parade in Mercer, Pennsylvania, which every year is a scene right out of a Norman Rockwell portraitthe essence of small-town America. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had published a profile I did of a local 87-year-old vet (same age as Blake) named Frank Kravetz, a former POW who did time in the hell-hole of the Nazis Nuremberg Prison Camp. I concluded that article with a plea to aging vets to share their unique experiences with the current generation, imploring them not to take this invaluable history to the grave. Well, said the soft-spoken Blake, reminding me of my own words, Ive got something that I dont think people know about. Someone needs to record this. Get it on-record. Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it. Okay, I told him. Start talking. What people today dont understand, Blake began, getting right to the point, is that in 1942, 1943, and so on, the government had no idea how long the war was going to last. That caught my attention right away. So true, I interrupted, today we know the dates: Normandy, June 1944. V-E Day, May 1945. The surrender of Japan, September 1945. But when you were living through it, you didnt know. Thats right, said Blake. And the government didnt know, and the government was making plans for the long-term. There were measures that the government took to get a supply of educated people dentists, physicians, all kinds of things. American society was going to need professional people. So many young men were serving in the war overseas. I hadnt thought of that. I hadnt read about it eitherBlakes point precisely. Blake told me about three government programs, which he abbreviated as V-1, V-12, and ASTP (Army Specialized Training Program). The former were both Navy operations. Blake was in V-1s. These were rigorous academic programs heavy in math and science. Among the goals was to create a non-combat professional class. Blake was trained as a doctor. Blake had grown up in Mercer, Pennsylvaniathe very site www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 11, 2011 Last week, I received a news release from Amtrak, the train people, that I could now catch a bus in The Villages (I already could do it in Ocala) to catch an Amtrak train. They seemed very excited about that. My first thought was, if I wanted to ride a bus, Id ride a bus. Im riding Amtrak because I want to ride a train. So I started thinking, what are the comparisons like? Suppose I want to go from Ocala to New Yorks Penn Station, which is where Amtrak goes. What would my choices be? Lets say I wanted to leave on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and return Monday Dec. 12. First, Amtrak. Round trip to New Yorks Penn Station would be $284. You can take two carryon luggage pieces and check three bags free. This, by the way, was in a coach seat, not a compartment. I would have to have someone take me to the bus, because in Ocala, you cant park your car overnight at the station. Seems to me that isnt good for stimulating usage, but what do I know. I catch the train in Jacksonville, then go to New York City, where I wouldnt arrive until Wednesday evening. By the time I got to a hotel, checked in, etc., it would probably be time to find something to eat and go to sleep in the city that never sleeps. After all, I had spent the previous night in a trains coach seat. And about food. Theres a little note on the Amtrak website that coach passengers are charged extra for meals. How nice. Coming home, I would leave on Tuesday in mid-morning and get back to Ocala Wednesday morning. Second, Greyhound bus. This is definitely the cheaper route, but probably the least comfortable. You would leave Ocala at 1:05 p.m. Tuesday and get to Penn Station in New York on Wednesday at 8:05 p.m. You have to change buses in Lake City, Richmond, Virginia, and at an early stop in New York. Presumably you could get off wherever that is and take a taxi to the Penn Station area and your hotel, but thats an extra expense. Coming back, I cant leave New York on Monday, but I would have to leave on Sunday, change in Richmond and Atlanta. Total cost for the bus is $186 listed, doesnt say anything about taxes. Of course, you have to eat in the bus stop restaurants at the stations, not always an appetizing amenity. Third, flying. I did a search from Gainesville to JFK Airport in New York City, and came up with a Delta flight for $256 after taxes. I would leave at 6:38 and get to New York at 11:12 a.m. On Tuesday, giving me an extra day up there (but the hotel is $300 a night or so.) Id have to get a taxi or limo from the airport to the Penn Station area to arrive at the same place as the bus and train. Coming back is about the same but the fare I quoted is round trip. Id also have to pay to park my car in Gainesville for a week or so. Finally, there is driving, which, no secret, is my favorite. If I left Ocala at 6 a.m. On Tuesday, and really felt energetic, I could drive all the way through. However, Im not as young as I used to be, so Id probably stop after about 12 hours in Richmond, on the north side. Id get up and leave not too early in the morning to avoid rush hour in D.C., and get to my hotel in New York about 2 p.m. Mileage about 900 miles. My car gets 30 miles to the gallon and 300 miles to a tank. Three tanks of gas at about $30 each is $90, or $180 round trip. One night in a motel about $60, but not that much for food. Youd be surprised how long a bucket of chicken can last when youre driving. Same expenses in New York, for the hotel, but an additional charge for parking the car, which is probably more expensive in New York than in Gainesville. What do all these comparisons show? For most people, the air route is the best, and fastest and probably most comfortable. I say most people because some of us dont fly. But we certainly dont take a bus to get to a train. Putting it all together, I guess my dream of seeing the Mets play at home in Citi Field is just a pipe dream, and wont happen. But, of course, there always is an alternative.

This Friday is Veterans Day, a time for us to honor all those who put on a uniform and serve in the military to help protect our country. Many people confuse this day with Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in May. Memorial Day honors all those who gave their lives in service of their country. Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors all veterans, living and dead. Its particularly important to honor those who are still with us. Although they didnt make the ultimate sacrifice that their deceased comrades made, they still gave up a chunk of their lives to protect and serve. Some came back with lifelong scars, both physical and mental. Fridays the day we should let them all know that we appreciate their service, whether in combat or not. Much attention is paid now to the veterans of World War II, especially with the Honor Flights that have provided them a chance to see a memorial built in Washington, D.C., in the honor of the service of the troops in that war. But, sadly, the number of World War II veterans is thinning out. A simple math deduction shows why: If a person in the military were 18 years old in 1945 when the war ended, he would be 84 years old today. But there are many veterans of wars and campaigns since then: Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. They are still around and, in many cases, active. This is the day to honor them, especially since they are here to receive the praise that they deserve. So take time this Friday to honor a veteran in the community. As we saw on a bumper sticker once, If you enjoy your freedom, thank a vet. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Take it one step at a time, Lamb, and soon all will be made clear. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That difficult situation youve been dealing with continues to call for careful handling. Avoid quickly made choices that might not stand up when theyre finally put to the test. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still have lots of evaluating to do before you can consider making a commitment. Its better to move cautiously than to risk stumbling into a major misunderstanding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously peevish partner offers to be more helpful with your problems. But remember: The final choice is yours. Be guided by what you feel is the right thing to do. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As the Big Cat, you can sometimes be pretty rough on those you suspect of betrayal. The best advice is to pull in those claws and listen to the explanation. It might surprise you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your inner voice usually guides you well. But a note of caution: This is a period of mixed signals for you, so be careful you dont misunderstand the messages youre getting. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Cupids call beckons both single Librans looking for a new love, as well as couples hoping to strengthen their relationships. A workplace problem is quickly resolved. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Its been a hectic time for you, and you might want to take a break to restore both body and soul. Youll then be set to face new challenges later this month. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Its a good idea to take a more conservative approach to your financial situation right now. Some plans made earlier this year might need readjusting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a fine time to move boldly into those new opportunities I promised would open up for you. Check them over, and then choose the best one for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Your selfassurance is growing stronger, and you should now feel more confident about making that long-deferred decision about a possible commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre very close to reaching your goal. But be wary of distractions that can lure you off-course and leave you stranded far away from where you really want to be. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an inner sight that helps you see into peoples hearts. You would be an excellent psychologist or social worker. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure

In addition to Social Security, you also will need savings, investments, pensions or retirement accounts to make sure you have enough money to live comfortably when you retire. Learn about retirement planning and how to save at www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/other2.htm. But, wait, theres more. If you decide youre going to be a snowbird when retirement comes, and go to warmer climates during winter weather, make sure that your Social Security payment goes with you. The best way to do that is to use direct deposit. You never have to worry about where your monthly payment will be delivered it will show up in your bank account whether youre in the Dakotas or the Florida Keys.

Even the animals know they cant wait until the last minute to prepare for a comfortable winter. Take a lesson from our furry and feathered friends and prepare for your own comfortable retirement. Autumns retirement lessons SOCIAL SECURITY A WAdon Williams Theres no doubt about it: Losing a job can be stressful. The thought of starting over can be unnerving, particularly if youve worked for the same company for a while.Get The FactsFirst, make an appointment with your companys Human Resources Department and get answers to these important questions: Can you negotiate a later departure date? This could give you more time to look for another job. Are you entitled to severance? If so, how much? n Will you receive payment for unused vacation days? If not, you should schedule them as soon as possible. How long will you be entitled to health coverage? And at what cost? Likewise, can you maintain your insurance policy? If so, at what rate? Whats involved in transferring, borrowing or withdrawing your 401(k) funds? Are you entitled to unemployment compensation? If so, what documentation do you need?Leave on Good TermsWhen your last day comes, handling yourself with professionalism and maturity will serve you better in the end. Although these are difficult circumstances, focus on what youve accomplished for the company and the skills youll take with you. Take any awards you may have earned, as well as nonprivileged work samples theyll be of interest to prospective employers. Take Constructive Actions In your search for a new job: Notify your references, including past employers, that youre job hunting. Update your resume, quantifying your accomplishments whenever possible (e.g. exceeded sales goal by 8 percent). Register with employment agencies and/or search firms. (Ask in advance if they charge for their services). Say yes to every interview, even if it isnt the job you want. Its good practice. Familiarize yourself with the companies youre interviewing with. Being prepared will go a long way with prospective employers. Follow up on your interviews with a thank-you e-mail or note. Although it is difficult, losing your job doesnt have to be an end.

It's an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). "The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public," said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement. "We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators." The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When people's information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservation-minded people don't even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, don't forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. There are many other ways that concerned citizens can directly assist the FWC. Angler Tag Return Hotline: Call 800-367-4461. Burmese Pythons, or other exotic reptiles: Call 888-483-4681.

Marion Woods is hosting other events during the weekend to also support this program. Outward Bound for Veterans helps returning service members and recent veterans readjust to life at home through powerful wilderness courses that draw on the healing benefit of teamwork and challenge through use of the natural world. Service members take part in wilderness expeditions that are physically, mentally and emotionally challenging in order to build the self-confidence, pride, trust, and communication skills necessary to successfully return to their families, employers and communities following wartime service. VIETNAMCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 On Sunday, Nov. 6, around 3 p.m., deputies conducted a traffic stop on a silver Dodge Magnum for a tint violation. The driver, Mario Vargas, did not have a valid drivers license. The passenger initially gave deputies a false name and date of birth. With Vargas consent, deputies searched the car and found marijuana and cocaine. While deputies tried to identify the passenger with the Rapid ID Scan system, the suspect fled on foot. He was quickly apprehended and identified as Ramone Williams, who had an active warrant. Williams admitted to swallowing eight (8) pieces of crack cocaine and was transported to a local hospital. Deputies searched the rest of the vehicle and located a safe and duffle bag. The contents of the safe and bag included: 40 credit cards in 40 different names. Ledgers containing more than 100 Social Security numbers and names. $8,300 in U.S. currency. $9,600 in blank money orders. After questioning him about the items found, suspect Vargas reported that he was helping his cousin operate an income tax refund check scam. Ramone Williams was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, resisting without violence, tampering with evidence and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. Mario Vagas was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license (DWLSR), identity theft, obtaining a credit card by fraudulent means. Additional arrests are pending.SentencedTyler John McPartland, 25, was sentenced Friday, Nov. 4, to 35 years in prison with a 20-year minimum mandatory. McPartland Suspect charged with identity theft, related crimes was convicted for shooting at four Marion County Sheriffs Office deputies when they arrived at an apartment along Southwest 21st Place, Ocala. It was near 1 a.m., Nov. 8, 2009, when 911 got the call: a woman stated she had been threatened and the suspect had a gun. The Marion County Sheriffs Office responded. Before long McPartland left the apartment and was met by two deputies who told McPartland to stop. McPartland refused and then pulled out a 9mm semi-automatic gun and began firing at the deputies who returned fire. McPartland then ran toward two other MCSO deputies and McPartland shot at them. They fired shots at McPartland. No one was struck. McPartland continued to run and soon came upon a third team of MCSO deputies who gave McPartland a series of verbal commands to halt and show his hands. McPartland finally complied.DUI caseA Miami man was accused of DUI after he was stopped in the 4000 block of State Road 200 for failing to maintain a single lane. After allegedly failing the field sobriety test, Frank Farray, 39, was taken to jail, where he refused to supply a breath sample.

VIETNAM CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 O n Sunday, Nov. 6, around 3 p.m., deputies conducted a traffic stop on a silver Dodge Magnum for a tint violation. The driver, Mario Vargas, did not have a valid drivers license. The passenger initially gave deputies a false name and date of birth. With Vargas consent, deputies searched the car and found marijuana and cocaine. While deputies tried to identify the passenger with the Rapid ID Scan system, the suspect fled on foot. He was quickly apprehended and identified as Ramone Williams, who had an active warrant. Williams admitted to swallowing eight (8) pieces of crack cocaine and was transported to a local hospital. Deputies searched the rest of the vehicle and located a safe and duffle bag. The contents of the safe and bag included: 40 credit cards in 40 different names. Ledgers containing more than 100 Social Security numbers and names. $8,300 in U.S. currency. $9,600 in blank money orders. After questioning him about the items found, suspect Vargas reported that he was helping his cousin operate an income tax refund check scam. Ramone Williams was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, resisting without violence, tampering with evidence and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. Mario Vagas was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license (DWLSR), identity theft, obtaining a credit card by fraudulent means. Additional arrests are pending. Sentenced Tyler John McPartland, 25, was sentenced Friday, Nov. 4, to 35 years in prison with a 20-year minimum mandatory. McPartland Suspect charged with identity theft, related crimes was convicted for shooting at four Marion County Sheriffs Office deputies when they arrived at an apartment along Southwest 21st Place, Ocala. It was near 1 a.m., Nov. 8, 2009, when 911 got the call: a woman stated she had been threatened and the suspect had a gun. The Marion County Sheriffs Office responded. Before long McPartland left the apartment and was met by two deputies who told McPartland to stop. McPartland refused and then pulled out a 9mm semi-automatic gun and began firing at the deputies who returned fire. McPartland then ran toward two other MCSO deputies and McPartland shot at them. They fired shots at McPartland. No one was struck. McPartland continued to run and soon came upon a third team of MCSO deputies who gave McPartland a series of verbal commands to halt and show his hands. McPartland finally complied. DUI case A Miami man was accused of DUI after he was stopped in the 4000 block of State Road 200 for failing to maintain a single lane. After allegedly failing the field sobriety test, Frank Farray, 39, was taken to jail, where he refused to supply a breath sample.

It's an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). "The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public," said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement. "We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators." The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When people's information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservation-minded people don't even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, don't forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. There are many other ways that concerned citizens can directly assist the FWC. Angler Tag Return Hotline: Call 800-367-4461. Burmese Pythons, or other exotic reptiles: Call 888-483-4681.

Starting Nov. 14 and continuing through February 2012, the Marion County Office of the County Engineer will implement the final phase in a series of stormwater retrofits addressing the water quality of runoff discharging into the 5.6-mile-long river in Dunnellon. The project will involve construction of a wet detention pond and landscaping on the south side of County Road 484 (East Pennsylvania Avenue) west of the Dr. Curtis Nelson Bridge. Previous project phases included stormwater retrofits to the bridge and to County Road 484 east of that location. Construction will take place during daylight hours on weekdays only. Motorists may experience temporary lane closures on County Road 484 near the Camp Drive intersection to accommodate construction vehicles entering and exiting the site. Sidewalk access and on-street parking may be temporarily unavailable in the vicinity of the construction. Crews will place proper signage and barricades. Traffic will be maintained through the work zone at all times. Adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances may affect construction schedules.

If you decide youre going to be a snowbird when retirement comes, and go to warmer climates during winter weather, make sure that your Social Security payment goes with you. The best way to do that is to use direct deposit. You never have to worry about where your monthly payment will be delivered it will show up in your bank account whether youre in the Dakotas or the Florida Keys.

Autumns retirement lessons S OCIAL SECURITY A W Adon Williams Theres no doubt about it: Losing a job can be stressful. The thought of starting over can be unnerving, particularly if youve worked for the same company for a while. Get The FactsFirst, make an appointment with your companys Human Resources Department and get answers to these important questions: Can you negotiate a later departure date? This could give you more time to look for another job. Are you entitled to severance? If so, how much? n Will you receive payment for unused vacation days? If not, you should schedule them as soon as possible. How long will you be entitled to health coverage? And at what cost? Likewise, can you maintain your insurance policy? If so, at what rate? Whats involved in transferring, borrowing or withdrawing your 401(k) funds? Are you entitled to unemployment compensation? If so, what documentation do you need? Leave on Good TermsWhen your last day comes, handling yourself with professionalism and maturity will serve you better in the end. Although these are difficult circumstances, focus on what youve accomplished for the company and the skills youll take with you. Take any awards you may have earned, as well as nonprivileged work samples theyll be of interest to prospective employers. Take Constructive Actions In your search for a new job: Notify your references, including past employers, that youre job hunting. Update your resume, quantifying your accomplishments whenever possible (e.g. exceeded sales goal by 8 percent). Register with employment agencies and/or search firms. (Ask in advance if they charge for their services). Say yes to every interview, even if it isnt the job you want. Its good practice. Familiarize yourself with the companies youre interviewing with. Being prepared will go a long way with prospective employers. Follow up on your interviews with a thank-you e-mail or note. Although it is difficult, losing your job doesnt have to be an end.

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the Citizen It was nothing dramatic, says Dr. Karl E. Blake of Wexford, Pennsylvania, retired surgeon and member of the World War II generation, but it was important, and no one has written about it, at least that Ive seen. I got an unexpected call from Dr. Blake last Memorial Day, mid-afternoon, after just returning from the annual Memorial Day Parade in Mercer, Pennsylvania, which every year is a scene right out of a Norman Rockwell portraitthe essence of small-town America. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had published a profile I did of a local 87-year-old vet (same age as Blake) named Frank Kravetz, a former POW who did time in the hell-hole of the Nazis Nuremberg Prison Camp. I concluded that article with a plea to aging vets to share their unique experiences with the current generation, imploring them not to take this invaluable history to the grave. Well, said the soft-spoken Blake, reminding me of my own words, Ive got something that I dont think people know about. Someone needs to record this. Get it on-record. Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it. Okay, I told him. Start talking. What people today dont understand, Blake began, getting right to the point, is that in 1942, 1943, and so on, the government had no idea how long the war was going to last. That caught my attention right away. So true, I interrupted, today we know the dates: Normandy, June 1944. V-E Day, May 1945. The surrender of Japan, September 1945. But when you were living through it, you didnt know. Thats right, said Blake. And the government didnt know, and the government was making plans for the long-term. There were measures that the government took to get a supply of educated people dentists, physicians, all kinds of things. American society was going to need professional people. So many young men were serving in the war overseas. I hadnt thought of that. I hadnt read about it eitherBlakes point precisely. Blake told me about three government programs, which he abbreviated as V-1, V-12, and ASTP (Army Specialized Training Program). The former were both Navy operations. Blake was in V-1s. These were rigorous academic programs heavy in math and science. Among the goals was to create a non-combat professional class. Blake was trained as a doctor. Blake had grown up in Mercer, Pennsylvaniathe very site www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 L ast week, I received a news release from Amtrak, the train people, that I could now catch a bus in The Villages (I already could do it in Ocala) to catch an Amtrak train. They seemed very excited about that. My first thought was, if I wanted to ride a bus, Id ride a bus. Im riding Amtrak because I want to ride a train. So I started thinking, what are the comparisons like? Suppose I want to go from Ocala to New Yorks Penn Station, which is where Amtrak goes. What would my choices be? Lets say I wanted to leave on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and return Monday Dec. 12. First, Amtrak. Round trip to New Yorks Penn Station would be $284. You can take two carryon luggage pieces and check three bags free. This, by the way, was in a coach seat, not a compartment. I would have to have someone take me to the bus, because in Ocala, you cant park your car overnight at the station. Seems to me that isnt good for stimulating usage, but what do I know. I catch the train in Jacksonville, then go to New York City, where I wouldnt arrive until Wednesday evening. By the time I got to a hotel, checked in, etc., it would probably be time to find something to eat and go to sleep in the city that never sleeps. After all, I had spent the previous night in a trains coach seat. And about food. Theres a little note on the Amtrak website that coach passengers are charged extra for meals. How nice. Coming home, I would leave on Tuesday in mid-morning and get back to Ocala Wednesday morning. Second, Greyhound bus. This is definitely the cheaper route, but probably the least comfortable. You would leave Ocala at 1:05 p.m. Tuesday and get to Penn Station in New York on Wednesday at 8:05 p.m. You have to change buses in Lake City, Richmond, Virginia, and at an early stop in New York. Presumably you could get off wherever that is and take a taxi to the Penn Station area and your hotel, but thats an extra expense. Coming back, I cant leave New York on Monday, but I would have to leave on Sunday, change in Richmond and Atlanta. Total cost for the bus is $186 listed, doesnt say anything about taxes. Of course, you have to eat in the bus stop restaurants at the stations, not always an appetizing amenity. Third, flying. I did a search from Gainesville to JFK Airport in New York City, and came up with a Delta flight for $256 after taxes. I would leave at 6:38 and get to New York at 11:12 a.m. On Tuesday, giving me an extra day up there (but the hotel is $300 a night or so.) Id have to get a taxi or limo from the airport to the Penn Station area to arrive at the same place as the bus and train. Coming back is about the same but the fare I quoted is round trip. Id also have to pay to park my car in Gainesville for a week or so. Finally, there is driving, which, no secret, is my favorite. If I left Ocala at 6 a.m. On Tuesday, and really felt energetic, I could drive all the way through. However, Im not as young as I used to be, so Id probably stop after about 12 hours in Richmond, on the north side. Id get up and leave not too early in the morning to avoid rush hour in D.C., and get to my hotel in New York about 2 p.m. Mileage about 900 miles. My car gets 30 miles to the gallon and 300 miles to a tank. Three tanks of gas at about $30 each is $90, or $180 round trip. One night in a motel about $60, but not that much for food. Youd be surprised how long a bucket of chicken can last when youre driving. Same expenses in New York, for the hotel, but an additional charge for parking the car, which is probably more expensive in New York than in Gainesville. What do all these comparisons show? For most people, the air route is the best, and fastest and probably most comfortable. I say most people because some of us dont fly. But we certainly dont take a bus to get to a train. Putting it all together, I guess my dream of seeing the Mets play at home in Citi Field is just a pipe dream, and wont happen. But, of course, there always is an alternative.

T his Friday is Veterans Day, a time for us to honor all those who put on a uniform and serve in the military to help protect our country. Many people confuse this day with Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in May. Memorial Day honors all those who gave their lives in service of their country. Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors all veterans, living and dead. Its particularly important to honor those who are still with us. Although they didnt make the ultimate sacrifice that their deceased comrades made, they still gave up a chunk of their lives to protect and serve. Some came back with lifelong scars, both physical and mental. Fridays the day we should let them all know that we appreciate their service, whether in combat or not. Much attention is paid now to the veterans of World War II, especially with the Honor Flights that have provided them a chance to see a memorial built in Washington, D.C., in the honor of the service of the troops in that war. But, sadly, the number of World War II veterans is thinning out. A simple math deduction shows why: If a person in the military were 18 years old in 1945 when the war ended, he would be 84 years old today. But there are many veterans of wars and campaigns since then: Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. They are still around and, in many cases, active. This is the day to honor them, especially since they are here to receive the praise that they deserve. So take time this Friday to honor a veteran in the community.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Take the time to thank a vet If I wanted a bus ride, Id plan one Get war stories on the written record for all Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEGUEST PAGE9 GUEST COLUMN ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Some changes might seem confusing at first, especially to an Aries whose impatience levels are pretty shaky this week. Take it one step at a time, Lamb, and soon all will be made clear. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That difficult situation youve been dealing with continues to call for careful handling. Avoid quickly made choices that might not stand up when theyre finally put to the test. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still have lots of evaluating to do before you can consider making a commitment. Its better to move cautiously than to risk stumbling into a major misunderstanding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously peevish partner offers to be more helpful with your problems. But remember: The final choice is yours. Be guided by what you feel is the right thing to do. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As the Big Cat, you can sometimes be pretty rough on those you suspect of betrayal. The best advice is to pull in those claws and listen to the explanation. It might surprise you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your inner voice usually guides you well. But a note of caution: This is a period of mixed signals for you, so be careful you dont misunderstand the messages youre getting. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Cupids call beckons both single Librans looking for a new love, as well as couples hoping to strengthen their relationships. A workplace problem is quickly resolved. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Its been a hectic time for you, and you might want to take a break to restore both body and soul. Youll then be set to face new challenges later this month. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Its a good idea to take a more conservative approach to your financial situation right now. Some plans made earlier this year might need readjusting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a fine time to move boldly into those new opportunities I promised would open up for you. Check them over, and then choose the best one for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Your selfassurance is growing stronger, and you should now feel more confident about making that long-deferred decision about a possible commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre very close to reaching your goal. But be wary of distractions that can lure you off-course and leave you stranded far away from where you really want to be. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an inner sight that helps you see into peoples hearts. You would be an excellent psychologist or social worker. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com (ironically) of the Memorial Day Parade I had just attended. He went to Grove City College, where I teach, and then followed at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh, two outstanding medical schools. So, I said to Blake as I scribbled notes, bachelors at Grove City, and then masters at Penn and M.D. at Pitt? No, no, Blake replied. I never got a degree. Thats something else people dont understand. Back then, you did as much schooling as you could afford and needed. Thats how it went. Indeed. That, too, is something lost over the years. Today, for way too many students, college is a four-year partyactually, a six-year party. Its not about studying, training, honing a skill or the life of the mind. You have fun, buy a degree without, hopefully, losing your soul and parents hard-earned savings. Worse, its often a scandalous rip-off, as universities charge obscene prices for what they provide. Karl Blakes generation wouldnt dare waste a dime of that hard-earned money. Blake told me how he went to college for $87 per semester, scraping together a handful of semesters. His experience had been like Frank Kravetzs, who attended just enough college to learn the engineering he needed to enter the field and make a nice career at Westinghouse after the war. Folks like Frank and Blake got more education in four semesters than youngsters today get in four years (or six years). Karl Blake got the education to enter medicine and launch a long, productive career in general and specialized surgery. He got the education post-war America needed. He credits programs like V-1, V12, and ASTP which he views as unusually far-sighted in planning. Dr. Karl E. Blake never planted a flag at Iwo Jima or stormed the beaches of Normandy. He did nothing dramatic, but he did do something extremely important, as did thousands of Americans like him who fought the battle for post-war civilized society. Blakes wartime training allowed him to save numerous lives after the war, far more than he might have saved in combat. Is there a Karl Blake in your family, on your street, at your church? Talk to him or her. Record the story. Get it on-record. As Dr. Blake says, Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it. Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science at Grove City College and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values. His books include The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism and his latest release, Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. GUEST CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why blame Obama?Why is President Obama being blamed for the bad economy that was started during the Bush years? Where were all of the job creators during this period that House Speaker John Boehner keeps talking about and who also didnt create jobs during the Bush or Obama years? Speaker Boehner says we have a spending problem that started during the last couple of years that is bringing this country down. This country was on the brink of disaster because of two foreign wars created by the Bush administration. Boehner was in a position of responsibility during all of these years and has voted to bankrupt this country and he still claims that Obama is the cause of jobless Americans. The Republicans also claim that Obama is creating class warfare on the rich by asking that they pay the same percentage of income tax that they paid during the Clinton years. The Republicans remember how bad the Clinton years were but forget that the United States was not only paying down the deficit they were also expanding employment opportunities for Americans. How can the Republicans be proud of their actions in voting down every jobs bill that the president has proposed that would have given jobs to teachers, policemen, firemen and building contractors. Why is there so much grandstanding and back slapping going on by the Republicans who havent found a camera or microphone that they didnt like. You would think that they would use these opportunities to create jobs rather than their own self promotion. Jerry Segovis OTOW Americas first National AnthemIve written a number of articles to the Citizen, most of which have been to complain about an injustice or to solve a problem affecting all of us. But, this time its to ask a simple question. How many of you out there know what the title of our first National Anthem might be. If you do let me know through your letters to the Citizen. Its one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written and music being my major in college, I should know. It was written by the first professional musician in the United States. He was born in 1746 and died in 1800. A true patriot who wrote many pieces of great music during the Revolution. His name is William Billings and the first National Anthem was CHESTER. Go to YouTube or Google chrome and you will find it. Im for going back to Chester.

Komen for the Cure. Julies Unique Hair Salon 8530 S.W. 103rd. St. RoadBe aware of lung cancerNovember is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we dedicate ourselves to increasing awareness and knowledge of the issues surrounding lung cancer. The American Cancer Society (ACS) reports that nearly 85 percent of all lung cancer cases in the United States are smoking related and 30 percent of all cancer deaths. About six out of 10 people with lung cancer die within a year of being diagnosed, and the expected five-year survival rate for people with lung cancer is just 16 percent. These numbers are frightening, yet its estimated that over 43 million Americans are current smokers. There are many researchers, physicians, pharmacists and other healthcare providers who are dedicated to finding better ways to diagnose and treat lung cancer, and there are many studies in progress right now that offer hope to patients battling the disease and their families. But the fact remainsthe best way to defeat lung cancer is to prevent it. So, please help in the fight against lung cancer by quitting smoking, encouraging your friends, family and neighbors to quit smoking, and speaking with your children about not smoking. By reducing the number of people who smoke, we will ultimately reduce the number of lung cancer deaths each year.

PAGE 11

I was reminded recently that the only thing growing in my family tree are fruits and nuts. Personally, I am not sure if I am a fruit or a nut. Just do not ask my wife. I had been away for so long I had forgotten many things about my family. My recent visit served as a refresher course reminding me why I had moved away in the first place. Memory sometimes pays little tricks causing us to remember the good old days and forgetting that sprinkled in among the good are ample portions of what I call good-challenged moments and characters. I cannot speak about anybody elses family; my family seems to run the gamut between good and bad. I certainly have some wonderful relatives but then, I also have those who are on the other side of that description. Overall, they serve to make my family what it is today. I enjoyed visiting with some of my relatives I had not seen for years. In fact, I could not remember the last time I had seen some of them. For the most part, it was a wonderful time of family reunion. I had really forgotten about good old Aunt Bessie. She has always been one of my favorite aunts. Nobody knows how old she really is, and she aint telling. Conferring with some of my older relatives none could remember a time when good old Aunt Bessie was not around. Some of us have guessed her age and we figure she is probably our oldest living relative. One of the oddities about good old Aunt Bessie has to do with her physical appearance. As far as anybody could remember, she was always consumed with her looks. Not just her clothing but her face as well. The one thing that was anathema to her was a wrinkle. She has what we all said behind her back, a wrinkle-phobia. If I had the money she spent on wrinkle creams I could retire and live a life of luxury. I do remember a time (and I had forgotten it until now and I just hoped she did) when I was not Aunt Bessies favorite nephew. It was years ago and I had not seen her for a while and when I did see her, I said, half jokingly, Is that a new wrinkle, Aunt Bessie? You would have thought I had shot her only child. She shrieked and then went to the bathroom to examine her face. She was so irate with me that she did not speak to me for over a year. Of course, looking back, there was no downside to that. I was tempted to remind her of that incident, but I remembered the old hymn, Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin. Then there was Uncle Harold. I had not seen him for I cannot remember how long. When I saw him, I noticed he had not changed. I think he was wearing the same suspenders he wore the last time I saw him. His suspenders were a fashion statement, according to him, but nobody knew exactly what they were saying. The great thing about Uncle Howard was his stories. He had a repertoire of stories that he repeated ad nauseam. Behind his back we often said, Uncle Howard will tell no stories he hasnt told a thousand times before. Probably the most amusing thing about his stories was the fact that he often confused the punchline of one-story with the punchline of another story. None of his punchlines ever went with the story. That made them even funnier. We laughed, he thought we were laughing at his story, we were really laughing at him. Just before I was ready to leave, who should come in but dear old Aunt Sylvia. As soon as I saw her, I smiled. Not only was I glad to see her, but I remembered her. If anybody was the cats meow, it was Aunt Sylvia. She loved to go out to eat, particularly with a group. I thought of the last time we all went out to eat together and Aunt Sylvia was with us. One of her peculiarities was along the line of tipping the waitress. She was the self-appointed guru of making sure the waitress got a good tip. When everybody finished eating and the bill had come, Aunt Sylvia would take charge. She would collect money from each person for the tip. If you did not give enough, she made you dig into your pocket again until you came up with an amount she was happy with to give to the waitress. With appropriate pomp and circumstance, she would call the waitress over to our table and present her with the tip of the evening. As I was flying home, a thought tugged at my mind; if the world is made up of such people like my relatives, what chance does the world really have? The world, as God has designed it, is made up of all kinds of people that He loves with an everlasting love. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). Thinking of my family on the plane coming home I thought, why am I the only sane person in my family? Then another thought emerged. Or, am I?The Rev. James L.

Compiled by Alan Gold HOW THEY VOTED Read the classifieds I n this latest Grisham novel the author works in a new kink to an old formula. His unlikely hero is David Zinc, Harvard grad and at only 31 a thoroughly burned out young lawyer. One morning he wigs out on the 93rd floor of his prestigious Chicago law firm and bolts. When the elevator began its descent, David Zinc started to laugh. The spinning and nausea were gone. The pressure on his chest vanished. He was doing it! He was leaving the sweatshop of Rogan Rothberg and saying farewell to the nightmare. He, David Zinc, of all the thousands of miserable associates and junior partners in the tall buildings of downtown Chicago, he and he alone had found the spine to walk away that gloomy morning. He heads for a bar and after drinking all day ends Novel is not vintage Grisham material B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington up on seedy Preston Avenue in the office of Finley & Figg, a two-lawyer firm specializing in DUIs, car wrecks, and cheap divorces. Drunk and disorderly, Zinc insists he wants to be hired by ambulance chasers Oscar Finley and Wally Figg. Caught off guard, they take him in. Though consigned to a dusty attic for an office, Zinc couldnt be happier. Hes home every night for dinner and now that hes relaxed and available for sex instead of crashing after a 90-hour week, he soon impregnates his pretty wife Helen. Meanwhile, recovering alcoholic Wally Figg is on another of his get-richquick schemes. This time hes putting together a mass tort suit aimed at a Big Pharma company that makes Krayoxx, a cholesterol-lowering drug. As a result of his routine visits to funeral homes hes discovered that among the deceased several had been taking Krayoxx. Oscar Finley is dismissive of the idea and David is skeptical but Wally, undeterred, forges ahead. If you think you know where this is heading, you may be right, but then again you may be wrong. In any case, although the novel is comic and readable, its not vintage Grisham. Except for Wally and Oscar, the characters are flat. And we only see flashes of the old Grisham in some of the court scenes.

Williams St. Dunnellon. Billboard Magazine called her the act to watch, taking up the road Carole King, Janis Ian and Joni Mitchell have trod. Amy Carol Webb songs have won first place in several international song competitions. Amy Carol Webb defined, is beloved song weaver. She is passionate, powerful, and poignant. Shes the girl next door and no ordinary woman. She got her first guitar a used Harmony gut-string Christmas day, age 11 and taught herself Red River Valley before nightfall. By 14, she was writing and playing music at hometown events, studying works from a remarkably diverse palette of artists Guthrie to Gershwin, Leonard Cohen to Leonard Bernstein, Bonnie Raitt to Beverly Sills then graduated college with a degree in performing arts and hit the road from the lower 48 states to Japan, Canada and Mexico to launch her own music career. After taking a break to bring two sons into the world, she burst back onto the acoustic music scene in 1995. Five popular and critically acclaimed independent CDs later, Amys on the road again, packing the house from Miami to Boston, from celebrated concert halls and festival stages to spiritual gatherings PLEASESEESAMPLER PAGE31 0009EMP 0009CV5 0009SSG L O C A T E D I N C A N O P Y O A K P L A Z A LOCATED IN CANOPY OAK PLAZA F A M I L Y O W N E D & O P E R A T E D FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED H a i r & N a i l s Hair & Nails C A L L 2 3 7 7 0 2 0 C ALL 237-7020 F O R A P P T FOR APPT W A L K I N S W E L C O M E W ALK INS WELCOME W h e r e e v e r y s e r v i c e i s a n e x p e r i e n c e Where every service is an experience H a i r & N a i l s Hair & Nails S T U D I O 2 0 0 S T U D I O 2 0 0 STUDIO 200 F U L L S E R V I C E S A L O N FULL SERVICE SALON H A P P Y V E T E R A N S D A Y H APPY V ETERAN S D AY T O A L L T H O S E W H O TO ALL THOSE WHO S E R V E D O U R C O U N T R Y SERVED OUR C OUNTRY Come help us welcome Crystal, our newest nail tech to the Studio 200 family!

ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.com Veterans Day Memorial Service, a fundraiser, and sports mark this weeks OTOW Happenings. OTOW Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club will hold its Veterans Day Memorial Service on Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Health and Recreation Building. Please come out to show your respect as we remember all of our veterans who have given so much for our country!

The show will be presented by the four Marlin Brothers and will be sold out by show time. If you are planning on attending, any remaining tickets will be available Nov. 14, 16, and 18 at 8:30 a.m. in the H&R Ballroom. OTOW Softball LeagueThe winter softball league at the OTOW field is off and running, playing every Monday and Wednesday morning. The teams are all set, and members wish to thank their sponsors: Wiseway Auto; Dr. Dunn (dentist); Celbert Wealth Financials; TeePee Tire; and their newest sponsors, Great Clips and Florida Eye. Through these sponsorships, the league has been able to buy hats and shirts for all team members. Some new residents have joined the League and are beginning to display their skills! The excitement is in the air as the teams battle their foes in hopes of becoming the victors of the game. The days of old are in the players eyes as one sees them strut up to the plate in hopes of blasting the ball. That feeling of excitement as they swing and hit that ball and watch it fall, and as they hope to get on and run the bases is evident. The new players may be a little rusty, but anyone can see they still have the joy of the game in them. Its that joy of the game that brings them out week after week. Seeing them hustle around the bases and recognizing the enjoyment they out when they cross home plate is a wonderful thing, but its not all there is to it. Its not so much about winning or losing, but rather, its about the exercise, the enjoyment of the game and, most important, the friendships that are developed. While there is always the desire to win, all are winners because the game brings the players back to the yesteryears of their youth. New players are always welcomed, so if interested, come on down and join the fun or join the spectators as they root for a favorite team or individual, The current standings, as of this writing, are: TeamWonLossTie 5 TeePee Tire-Ken52 4 Florida Eye Roger52 2 Great Clips Angelo43 3 Cebert Wealth Bill43 1 Dr. Dunn Marty241 6 Wiseway Jimmy061Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... 14 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com OTOW Lions to hold Veterans Day service at 10 a.m. OTOW HAPPENINGS The Central Florida Master Choir is proud to present its seasonal concert, Carols from Around the World.

T oday is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor Americas veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Our parade down Pun Alley starts with a twentyone-pun salute to honor our veterans. Young Stan told his father that when he grew up he wanted to drive a big Army tank. Well, son, said his dad, if thats what you want to do, I wont stand in your way. People who hate the Marines are rotten to the corps. One young soldier destroyed five bridges, blew up an ammo dump, and wiped out an important military installation. Fortunately, after that they sent him overseas. When William joined the army he disliked the phrase fire at will. If people think that old soldiers just fade away, they ought to try to get into an old army uniform. What shall we do, sir? The enemy are as thick as peas. Shell them, of course! A new recruit couldnt understand why they called him private. He slept in a room with 80 other guys. He stared at his belly button so much, he was promoted to Navel Officer. An ex-sailor prefers to forget the days he spent playing cards in submarines, dismissing them as so much bridge under the water. How can any place be good where the bed is a bunk and the kitchen is a mess? A woman was in love with 20 soldiers. It was platoonic. You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they cant keep their heads above water. The overweight fighter pilot was grounded for violating the rules of engorgement. An artist with the military kept drawing enemy fire. At first the paratroops didnt obey orders, but finally they fell in line. He was to carry two flags in the parade, but decided that would be a double standard. A chaplain on the sea leads the soldiers in their warship. My dentist served in the Army. Of course he was a Drill Sergeant. A soldier who stuffed himself with ice cream was a desserter. Have you swabbed the decks and polished the brass? Yes, sir. And when nobody was looking, I took out my binoculars and swept the horizon. Must be right New Recruit: My names Wright and you spelled it wrong twice. Two wrongs dont make a right. Company Clerk: Thats right. New Recruit: But its wrong. Clerk: If its wrong, it cant be right. New Recruit: You dont understand. My names Wright. Clerk: How do you write it, Wright? New Recruit: Thats not right. Clerk: Then you dont write it right? New Recruit: Right. Clerk: Next! Let downThe paratroopers were practicing in backwoods Tennessee. One jumper was close to the property of an old mountain man and his very large family. One of the kids saw the chute floating down and yelled out, Pa, get your shotgun; the stork is bringing them full-grown now! No loafing The troops were complaining that the messs bread was too hard to eat. The officer in charge said, If Napoleons troops had that bread, theyd have eaten it down to the last crumb. A soldier replied, I believe that, sir. But it was fresh then. Goodtime CharleyCharley, a new retiree greeter at Walmart, was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, and sharp minded. But he just couldnt get to work on time. Every day he was five, 10, sometimes 15 minutes late. Finally, the boss called him into the office for a talk. Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a great job, but your being late so often is quite bothersome. Yes, I know, boss, and I am working on it. Well good, you are a team player. Thats what I like to hear. Its odd though; youre coming in late. I know youre retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say if you came in late there? They usually said, Good morning, General. Tea or coffee this morning, sir?Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Taking a Veterans Day parade down Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com In a revealing study released this morning by the National Federation of Independent Business Research Foundation, the effects of the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) prove to be devastating to Florida, with at least 2,800 lost jobs and a $3.5 billion reduction in sales in 2021. The research found that 61 percent of lost jobs and 49 percent of lost sales would be borne by small businesses. The study further demonstrates the need to repeal the HIT, before it goes into effect in 2014, in order to help alleviate the crisis of confidence among the nations small business community and provide more economic certainty. The Stop The HIT Coalition issued the following Statement: This study is some of the most conclusive evidence, to date, that the HIT will be a crushing blow to small businesses as they try to stay afloat, create jobs and pull this economy out of the doldrums. Small businesses are the job creating engine for our economy, but this impending tax is already stopping them dead in their tracks. Members of Congress must take action and repeal the HIT before any further damage is done. The study included key national findings that as a result of the HIT: Increased employer costs would reduce private sector employment by between 125,000 and 249,000 jobs in 2021. Roughly 59 percent of these job losses will occur at small businesses. The tax would reduce U.S. real output (sales) in 2021 by between $18 billion and $30 billion. Approximately half of these lost sales would have been sales made by small businesses. The Health Insurance Tax (HIT), part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed into law last year and going into effect in 2014, raises a total of $87 billion in the first ten years and $208 billion in the second ten year. The BSIM (Business Size Impact Module) is a dynamic, multi-region forecasting model that analyzes the impact of policy shocks on the economy.

FROM E Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Why dont more states mandate deposits on beverage bottles as incentives for people to return them? Most bottles Ive seen only list a few states on them. -Alan Wu, Cary, NC So-called bottle bills, otherwise known as container recycling laws, mandate that certain types of beverage containers require a small deposit (usually five or ten cents) at checkout beyond the price of the beverage itself. Customers can return the empty containers later and reclaim their nickels and dimes. The idea is to provide a financial incentive for consumers to recycle and to force industry to re-use the raw materials. According to the Container Recycling Institute (CRI), a California-based non-profit which encourages the collection and recycling of packaging materials (and runs the website BottleBill.org), the benefits of bottle bills include: supplying recyclable materials for a high-demand market; conserving energy, natural resources and landfill space; creating new businesses and green jobs; and reducing waste disposal costs and litter. The 10 U.S. states that currently have container recycling laws recycle at least 70 percent of their bottles and cans; this amounts to a recycling rate 2.5 times higher than in states without bottle bills. Beverage containers make up a whopping 5.6 percent of the overall U.S. waste stream, so every bottle and can that gets recycled counts toward freeing up landfill space. And CRI reports that beverage containers account for some 20 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from landfilling municipal solid waste and replacing the wasted products with new ones made from virgin feedstock. So by promoting more recycling, bottle bills indirectly reduce our carbon footprints. The 10 U.S. states with bottle bills are California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon and Vermont. Delawares legislature repealed its bottle bill after almost three decades on the books last year as the states bottle recycling rate had dropped to just 12 percent due to more and more retailers refusing to deal with the hassle of accepting returned containers. In place of its bottle bill, Delaware enacted a $0.04/bottle recycling fee that will help defray the costs of starting up a curbside recycling pickup system to service the entire state. We are extremely disappointed they chose to repeal their law, rather than enforce it, reported CRIs Susan Collins, adding that the new fee places a burden on consumers only. Consumers will be subsidizing the producers and that is unfair. CRI supports extended producer responsibility where producers and consumers together pay for the life cycle costs of product packaging. Beyond Delaware, the main reason bottle bills havent caught on is because of opposition to them by the beverage industry, which doesnt want to bear the costs of recycling and claims that the extra nickel or dime on the initial cost of the beverage is enough to turn potential customers away. The U.S. Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) found that the beverage industry and its representatives spent about $14 million in campaign contributions aimed at defeating a national bottle bill between 1989 and 1994. Meanwhile, members of a Senate committee who voted against national bottle bill legislation in 1992 received some 75 times more in beverage-industry PAC money than those who voted in favor of the bill. CONTACTS: Container Recycling Institute, www.containerrecycling.org; USPIRG, www.uspirg.org.Dear EarthTalk: Most gold mining operations use cyanide to extract gold from surrounding rock. What are the environmental implications of this, and are there alternatives? -J. Pelton, via email Although cyanidationthe use of a sodium cyanide compound to separate a precious metal from finely ground rock has become less common in other forms of mining, it is still the dominant practice in gold mining. Some 90 percent of gold mines around the world employ cyanidation to harvest their loot. In gold mining, a diluted cyanide solution is sprayed on crushed ore that is placed in piles or mixed with ore in enclosed vats, reports the State Environmental Resource Center (SERC), a project of the non-profit Defenders of Wildlife. The cyanide attaches to minute particles of gold to form a water-soluble, goldcyanide compound from which the gold can be recovered. But of course not all the cyanide gets recovered. Some of it gets spilled, and some is left within mine waste that is often buried underground woefully close to groundwater, leaving neighbors and public health officials worried about its effects on drinking water and on surrounding ecosystems and local wildlife. Mining and regulatory documents often state that cyanide in water rapidly breaks down in the presence of sunlight into largely harmless substances, such as carbon dioxide and nitrate or ammonia, reports Earthworks, a Washington, DC-based non-profit. However, cyanide also tends to react readily with many other chemical elements and is known to form, at a minimum, hundreds of different compounds. While many of these compounds are less toxic than the original cyanide, says Earthworks, they can still persist in the environment and accumulate in fish and plant tissues, wreaking havoc on up the food chain. In 2000, a breach in a tailings (mining waste) dam at a gold mine in Baia Mare, Romania resulted in the release of 100,000 cubic meters of cyanide-rich waste into the surrounding watershed. Nearly all aquatic life in nearby waters died, while drinking water supplies were cut off for some 2.5 million people. In the wake of this accident, gold miners around the world have been taking steps to deal with tailings in a safer manner, through the use of special systems designed to prevent cyanide or its breakdown compounds from escaping into the environment. But such precautions at present are only voluntary. Regulators in the U.S.the third largest gold producer after South Africa and Australia dont require mine operators to monitor cyanide and its breakdown compounds in nearby groundwater and water bodies, so no one knows just how big a problem might be. One promising alternative to using cyanide in gold mines is the Haber Gold Process, a non-toxic extraction system that tests have shown can result in more gold recovery over a shorter period than cyanidation. Another alternative is YES Technologies biocatalyzed leaching process which proponents say is 200 times less toxic than cyanide. But with cyanidation well-entrenched in the industry and regulators looking the other way, these alternatives face an uphill battle in gaining widespread adoption.

Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone later this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications Barry Bowman said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our co-op to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. In a related development, J.D. Power and Associates recently did its own nationwide survey of customer satisfaction with electric utilities. Their survey ranked SECO as the highest in customer satisfaction of all the utilities in Florida both large and small. In fact, the co-op had one of the highest scores for utilities located anywhere in the South.

The Centers has once again earned The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commissions state-of-the-art national standards for quality and safety in behavioral health care. The Centers underwent a rigorous on-site survey conducted by a Joint Commission expert surveyor. She expressed on numerous occasions how impressed she was with the agency, the care provided, and the staff. Upon completion she stated that in all her years with The Joint Commission, she would consider The Centers to be one of the top two facilities in the country she has surveyed. The recent renewal of the Joint Commission Accreditation serves to provide indisputable evidence of the commitment, dedication and excellence that the staff of The Centers offers to the communities of Marion and Citrus Counties. Such commitment ensures that every consumer receives the highest quality treatment in a benevolent environment that promotes growth and healing. It is a standard we have set for ourselves and will continue, said Diane Daniels, Clinical Director. The Centers, a private, non-profit behavioral health care organization, has been serving Marion and Citrus Counties for more than 39 years. With four locations in Marion County and three in Citrus County, it is one of the top 10 employers supporting more than 560 trained professionals. Housing a 57bed acute care facility (Children and Adult Crisis Stabilization Units and Adult Psychiatric Hospital), 50-bed adult and 15bed adolescent residential substance abuse treatment facilities, The Centers is saving lives everyday. In partnership with Kids Central, Inc., The Centers also provides case management and crisis response services for children and families in Circuit 5. Furthermore, through its partnerships with local schools, law enforcement, and childrens services, the Centers provides vital community outreach, prevention, and intervention programs for thousands more. In fact, one out of every 15 individuals in our community directly benefits from The Centers services every year. Our goal is to help people become as independent as possible, but also to serve as a continual means of support, every step of the way, and throughout ones entire life, said Russell Rasco, CEO, who is retiring Nov. 14 after 33 years. The main number for The Centers is 352-2915555. The 24-hour crisis line is 352-629-9595. M ark your calendar for Saturday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert directed by Floyd Hickman. The program will contain 13 seasonal selections: secular and sacred, traditional and contemporary. The chorus is composed of Marion Landing residents who spend many weeks practicing and perfecting songs for the concert. The Holiday Concert will feature three guest soloists: Erica Goodman, a St. Leo University student and violinist who is a member of the Villages Community Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lake Sumter Chamber Orchestra; pianist Diane Hartley, a Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary School music teacher, 2010-11 Teacher of the Year and Golden Apple finalist; and pianist Naoko Wicklein, a Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary School music teacher and pianist at our 2007 Holiday Concert. Tickets for the concert are $5 and are available during Tuesday morning socials or in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. Tickets will be available to the general public the week before the concert as well as at the door. Volunteer recognitionThe Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Program had recently been modified so it could include many residents who have made significant contributions to the community in the past, even though they do not currently participate. At the Nov. 1 Homeowner Forum, Board Treasurer John Moran commended such a resident. He recognized Shirley Seckman as a person who volunteered to gather information and launch the communitys first quarterly newsletter back in the late 80s called Happy Landings. Through a number of starts and stops, this idea eventually evolved into our current community newsletter, the Communicator, a monthly publication of which Shirley was our first editor. In his presentation, John said, Our volunteer (Shirley) had built the foundation and organization of what we now look forward to receiving and reading on a monthly basis: the Marion Landing Communicator. Marion Landing thanks you for all your hard work and contributions. Shirley was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Certificate, and her engraved plaque will be added to the more than 140 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center.Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Landing Lites Holiday Concert will be held on Dec. 3 M ARION LANDING D B Diane Bress PHOTO BY DIANE BRESSVolunteer Shirley Seckman receives Volunteer Recognition Certificate from Board Treasurer John Moran.

Ask if you are eligible to donate via ALYX, the state-of-the art automated blood collection system, allowing you to safely and comfortably donate two units of red cells in just one visit. Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. But did you know that donating blood can also benefit your own health? Studies have shown that donating blood regularly can be beneficial for the heart and circulatory system and can reduce the risk of heart diseases. Besides, blood donation also burns extra calories and reduces your cholesterol level.

Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. But did you know that donating blood can also benefit your own health? Studies have shown that donating blood regularly can be beneficial for the heart and circulatory system and can reduce the risk of heart diseases.

The Centers has once again earned The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commissions state-of-the-art national standards for quality and safety in behavioral health care. The Centers underwent a rigorous on-site survey conducted by a Joint Commission expert surveyor. She expressed on numerous occasions how impressed she was with the agency, the care provided, and the staff. Upon completion she stated that in all her years with The Joint Commission, she would consider The Centers to be one of the top two facilities in the country she has surveyed. The recent renewal of the Joint Commission Accreditation serves to provide indisputable evidence of the commitment, dedication and excellence that the staff of The Centers offers to the communities of Marion and Citrus Counties. Such commitment ensures that every consumer receives the highest quality treatment in a benevolent environment that promotes growth and healing. It is a standard we have set for ourselves and will continue, said Diane Daniels, Clinical Director. The Centers, a private, non-profit behavioral health care organization, has been serving Marion and Citrus Counties for more than 39 years. With four locations in Marion County and three in Citrus County, it is one of the top 10 employers supporting more than 560 trained professionals. Housing a 57bed acute care facility (Children and Adult Crisis Stabilization Units and Adult Psychiatric Hospital), 50-bed adult and 15bed adolescent residential substance abuse treatment facilities, The Centers is saving lives everyday. In partnership with Kids Central, Inc., The Centers also provides case management and crisis response services for children and families in Circuit 5. Furthermore, through its partnerships with local schools, law enforcement, and childrens services, the Centers provides vital community outreach, prevention, and intervention programs for thousands more. In fact, one out of every 15 individuals in our community directly benefits from The Centers services every year. Our goal is to help people become as independent as possible, but also to serve as a continual means of support, every step of the way, and throughout ones entire life, said Russell Rasco, CEO, who is retiring Nov. 14 after 33 years.

The program will contain 13 seasonal selections: secular and sacred, traditional and contemporary. The chorus is composed of Marion Landing residents who spend many weeks practicing and perfecting songs for the concert. The Holiday Concert will feature three guest soloists: Erica Goodman, a St. Leo University student and violinist who is a member of the Villages Community Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lake Sumter Chamber Orchestra; pianist Diane Hartley, a Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary School music teacher, 2010-11 Teacher of the Year and Golden Apple finalist; and pianist Naoko Wicklein, a Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary School music teacher and pianist at our 2007 Holiday Concert. Tickets for the concert are $5 and are available during Tuesday morning socials or in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. Tickets will be available to the general public the week before the concert as well as at the door. Volunteer recognitionThe Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Program had recently been modified so it could include many residents who have made significant contributions to the community in the past, even though they do not currently participate. At the Nov. 1 Homeowner Forum, Board Treasurer John Moran commended such a resident. He recognized Shirley Seckman as a person who volunteered to gather information and launch the communitys first quarterly newsletter back in the late 80s called Happy Landings. Through a number of starts and stops, this idea eventually evolved into our current community newsletter, the Communicator, a monthly publication of which Shirley was our first editor. In his presentation, John said, Our volunteer (Shirley) had built the foundation and organization of what we now look forward to receiving and reading on a monthly basis: the Marion Landing Communicator. Marion Landing thanks you for all your hard work and contributions. Shirley was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Certificate, and her engraved plaque will be added to the more than 140 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center.Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Landing Lites Holiday Concert will be held on Dec. 3 M ARION LANDING D B Diane Bress PHOTO BY DIANE BRESSVolunteer Shirley Seckman receives Volunteer Recognition Certificate from Board Treasurer John Moran.

That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Nov.16 to register with Pat. We hope to see you there!Halloween DanceThe Marion Landing Halloween Dance was a huge success! Most of the crowd dressed up for the occasion, and prizes were awarded for prettiest, ugliest and most original costumes. Joan Pearce took the prize for ugliest costume coming as Lady GaGas Grandmother; John and Judy Alderson won for prettiest costume with their rendition of Pirates, and Don and Judy Lee were Marion Landings own Flintstones winning most-original costume. The decorations set the mood, and the exceptional music by Cool Breeze inspired everyone to have a spooktacular time, said Carolyn Cockerham, dance organizer. Many thanks to Carolyn for taking the lead in bringing this party to the community, as well as Bessie Roberts, Janis Hendershot and Josephine Eckert for helping to pull the whole thing off.

FROM E Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Why dont more states mandate deposits on beverage bottles as incentives for people to return them? Most bottles Ive seen only list a few states on them. -Alan Wu, Cary, NC So-called bottle bills, otherwise known as container recycling laws, mandate that certain types of beverage containers require a small deposit (usually five or ten cents) at checkout beyond the price of the beverage itself. Customers can return the empty containers later and reclaim their nickels and dimes. The idea is to provide a financial incentive for consumers to recycle and to force industry to re-use the raw materials. According to the Container Recycling Institute (CRI), a California-based non-profit which encourages the collection and recycling of packaging materials (and runs the website BottleBill.org), the benefits of bottle bills include: supplying recyclable materials for a high-demand market; conserving energy, natural resources and landfill space; creating new businesses and green jobs; and reducing waste disposal costs and litter. The 10 U.S. states that currently have container recycling laws recycle at least 70 percent of their bottles and cans; this amounts to a recycling rate 2.5 times higher than in states without bottle bills. Beverage containers make up a whopping 5.6 percent of the overall U.S. waste stream, so every bottle and can that gets recycled counts toward freeing up landfill space. And CRI reports that beverage containers account for some 20 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from landfilling municipal solid waste and replacing the wasted products with new ones made from virgin feedstock. So by promoting more recycling, bottle bills indirectly reduce our carbon footprints. The 10 U.S. states with bottle bills are California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon and Vermont. Delawares legislature repealed its bottle bill after almost three decades on the books last year as the states bottle recycling rate had dropped to just 12 percent due to more and more retailers refusing to deal with the hassle of accepting returned containers. In place of its bottle bill, Delaware enacted a $0.04/bottle recycling fee that will help defray the costs of starting up a curbside recycling pickup system to service the entire state. We are extremely disappointed they chose to repeal their law, rather than enforce it, reported CRIs Susan Collins, adding that the new fee places a burden on consumers only. Consumers will be subsidizing the producers and that is unfair. CRI supports extended producer responsibility where producers and consumers together pay for the life cycle costs of product packaging. Beyond Delaware, the main reason bottle bills havent caught on is because of opposition to them by the beverage industry, which doesnt want to bear the costs of recycling and claims that the extra nickel or dime on the initial cost of the beverage is enough to turn potential customers away. The U.S. Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) found that the beverage industry and its representatives spent about $14 million in campaign contributions aimed at defeating a national bottle bill between 1989 and 1994. Meanwhile, members of a Senate committee who voted against national bottle bill legislation in 1992 received some 75 times more in beverage-industry PAC money than those who voted in favor of the bill. CONTACTS: Container Recycling Institute, www.containerrecycling.org; USPIRG, www.uspirg.org.Dear EarthTalk: Most gold mining operations use cyanide to extract gold from surrounding rock. What are the environmental implications of this, and are there alternatives? -J. Pelton, via email Although cyanidationthe use of a sodium cyanide compound to separate a precious metal from finely ground rock has become less common in other forms of mining, it is still the dominant practice in gold mining. Some 90 percent of gold mines around the world employ cyanidation to harvest their loot. In gold mining, a diluted cyanide solution is sprayed on crushed ore that is placed in piles or mixed with ore in enclosed vats, reports the State Environmental Resource Center (SERC), a project of the non-profit Defenders of Wildlife. The cyanide attaches to minute particles of gold to form a water-soluble, goldcyanide compound from which the gold can be recovered. But of course not all the cyanide gets recovered. Some of it gets spilled, and some is left within mine waste that is often buried underground woefully close to groundwater, leaving neighbors and public health officials worried about its effects on drinking water and on surrounding ecosystems and local wildlife. Mining and regulatory documents often state that cyanide in water rapidly breaks down in the presence of sunlight into largely harmless substances, such as carbon dioxide and nitrate or ammonia, reports Earthworks, a Washington, DC-based non-profit. However, cyanide also tends to react readily with many other chemical elements and is known to form, at a minimum, hundreds of different compounds. While many of these compounds are less toxic than the original cyanide, says Earthworks, they can still persist in the environment and accumulate in fish and plant tissues, wreaking havoc on up the food chain. In 2000, a breach in a tailings (mining waste) dam at a gold mine in Baia Mare, Romania resulted in the release of 100,000 cubic meters of cyanide-rich waste into the surrounding watershed. Nearly all aquatic life in nearby waters died, while drinking water supplies were cut off for some 2.5 million people. In the wake of this accident, gold miners around the world have been taking steps to deal with tailings in a safer manner, through the use of special systems designed to prevent cyanide or its breakdown compounds from escaping into the environment. But such precautions at present are only voluntary. Regulators in the U.S.the third largest gold producer after South Africa and Australia dont require mine operators to monitor cyanide and its breakdown compounds in nearby groundwater and water bodies, so no one knows just how big a problem might be. One promising alternative to using cyanide in gold mines is the Haber Gold Process, a non-toxic extraction system that tests have shown can result in more gold recovery over a shorter period than cyanidation. Another alternative is YES Technologies biocatalyzed leaching process which proponents say is 200 times less toxic than cyanide. But with cyanidation well-entrenched in the industry and regulators looking the other way, these alternatives face an uphill battle in gaining widespread adoption.

Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone later this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications Barry Bowman said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our co-op to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. In a related development, J.D. Power and Associates recently did its own nationwide survey of customer satisfaction with electric utilities. Their survey ranked SECO as the highest in customer satisfaction of all the utilities in Florida both large and small. In fact, the co-op had one of the highest scores for utilities located anywhere in the South.

T oday is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor Americas veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Our parade down Pun Alley starts with a twentyone-pun salute to honor our veterans. Young Stan told his father that when he grew up he wanted to drive a big Army tank. Well, son, said his dad, if thats what you want to do, I wont stand in your way. People who hate the Marines are rotten to the corps. One young soldier destroyed five bridges, blew up an ammo dump, and wiped out an important military installation. Fortunately, after that they sent him overseas. When William joined the army he disliked the phrase fire at will. If people think that old soldiers just fade away, they ought to try to get into an old army uniform. What shall we do, sir? The enemy are as thick as peas. Shell them, of course! A new recruit couldnt understand why they called him private. He slept in a room with 80 other guys. He stared at his belly button so much, he was promoted to Navel Officer. An ex-sailor prefers to forget the days he spent playing cards in submarines, dismissing them as so much bridge under the water. How can any place be good where the bed is a bunk and the kitchen is a mess? A woman was in love with 20 soldiers. It was platoonic. You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they cant keep their heads above water. The overweight fighter pilot was grounded for violating the rules of engorgement. An artist with the military kept drawing enemy fire. At first the paratroops didnt obey orders, but finally they fell in line. He was to carry two flags in the parade, but decided that would be a double standard. A chaplain on the sea leads the soldiers in their warship. My dentist served in the Army. Of course he was a Drill Sergeant. A soldier who stuffed himself with ice cream was a desserter. Have you swabbed the decks and polished the brass? Yes, sir. And when nobody was looking, I took out my binoculars and swept the horizon. Must be right New Recruit: My names Wright and you spelled it wrong twice. Two wrongs dont make a right. Company Clerk: Thats right. New Recruit: But its wrong. Clerk: If its wrong, it cant be right. New Recruit: You dont understand. My names Wright. Clerk: How do you write it, Wright? New Recruit: Thats not right. Clerk: Then you dont write it right? New Recruit: Right. Clerk: Next! Let downThe paratroopers were practicing in backwoods Tennessee. One jumper was close to the property of an old mountain man and his very large family. One of the kids saw the chute floating down and yelled out, Pa, get your shotgun; the stork is bringing them full-grown now! No loafing The troops were complaining that the messs bread was too hard to eat. The officer in charge said, If Napoleons troops had that bread, theyd have eaten it down to the last crumb. A soldier replied, I believe that, sir. But it was fresh then. Goodtime CharleyCharley, a new retiree greeter at Walmart, was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, and sharp minded. But he just couldnt get to work on time. Every day he was five, 10, sometimes 15 minutes late. Finally, the boss called him into the office for a talk. Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a great job, but your being late so often is quite bothersome. Yes, I know, boss, and I am working on it. Well good, you are a team player. Thats what I like to hear. Its odd though; youre coming in late. I know youre retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say if you came in late there? They usually said, Good morning, General. Tea or coffee this morning, sir?Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Taking a Veterans Day parade down Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com In a revealing study released this morning by the National Federation of Independent Business Research Foundation, the effects of the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) prove to be devastating to Florida, with at least 2,800 lost jobs and a $3.5 billion reduction in sales in 2021. The research found that 61 percent of lost jobs and 49 percent of lost sales would be borne by small businesses. The study further demonstrates the need to repeal the HIT, before it goes into effect in 2014, in order to help alleviate the crisis of confidence among the nations small business community and provide more economic certainty. The Stop The HIT Coalition issued the following Statement: This study is some of the most conclusive evidence, to date, that the HIT will be a crushing blow to small businesses as they try to stay afloat, create jobs and pull this economy out of the doldrums. Small businesses are the job creating engine for our economy, but this impending tax is already stopping them dead in their tracks. Members of Congress must take action and repeal the HIT before any further damage is done. The study included key national findings that as a result of the HIT: Increased employer costs would reduce private sector employment by between 125,000 and 249,000 jobs in 2021. Roughly 59 percent of these job losses will occur at small businesses. The tax would reduce U.S. real output (sales) in 2021 by between $18 billion and $30 billion. Approximately half of these lost sales would have been sales made by small businesses. The Health Insurance Tax (HIT), part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed into law last year and going into effect in 2014, raises a total of $87 billion in the first ten years and $208 billion in the second ten year. The BSIM (Business Size Impact Module) is a dynamic, multi-region forecasting model that analyzes the impact of policy shocks on the economy.

ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@hotmail.com Veterans Day Memorial Service, a fundraiser, and sports mark this weeks OTOW Happenings. OTOW Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club will hold its Veterans Day Memorial Service on Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Health and Recreation Building. Please come out to show your respect as we remember all of our veterans who have given so much for our country! The OTOW Lions Club will hold an Italian dinner fundraiser on Sunday, Jan. 29, 4 p.m. in the H&R Ballroom. Sammys Restaurant will cater this event. The price is $12 per person, and the proceeds go to benefit the Interfaith and Childrens Backpack Program. Tickets will be sold from 8 to 10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the H& R Ballroom. This event is open to the public. Entertainment will be provided by George and Judy Karaoke plus more, and there will be a TV raffle, among other items. Reservations are required. Please contact any of the following people to make your reservation: Virginia 352-414-1696; Dawn 352-854-8314; or Sarah 352-4658291. OTOW Entertainment GroupThe OTOW Entertainment Groups show Christmas and a Whole Lot More will take place on Nov. 26. The show will be presented by the four Marlin Brothers and will be sold out by show time. If you are planning on attending, any remaining tickets will be available Nov. 14, 16, and 18 at 8:30 a.m. in the H&R Ballroom. OTOW Softball LeagueThe winter softball league at the OTOW field is off and running, playing every Monday and Wednesday morning. The teams are all set, and members wish to thank their sponsors: Wiseway Auto; Dr. Dunn (dentist); Celbert Wealth Financials; TeePee Tire; and their newest sponsors, Great Clips and Florida Eye. Through these sponsorships, the league has been able to buy hats and shirts for all team members. Some new residents have joined the League and are beginning to display their skills! The excitement is in the air as the teams battle their foes in hopes of becoming the victors of the game. The days of old are in the players eyes as one sees them strut up to the plate in hopes of blasting the ball. That feeling of excitement as they swing and hit that ball and watch it fall, and as they hope to get on and run the bases is evident. The new players may be a little rusty, but anyone can see they still have the joy of the game in them. Its that joy of the game that brings them out week after week. Seeing them hustle around the bases and recognizing the enjoyment they out when they cross home plate is a wonderful thing, but its not all there is to it. Its not so much about winning or losing, but rather, its about the exercise, the enjoyment of the game and, most important, the friendships that are developed. While there is always the desire to win, all are winners because the game brings the players back to the yesteryears of their youth. New players are always welcomed, so if interested, come on down and join the fun or join the spectators as they root for a favorite team or individual, The current standings, as of this writing, are: TeamWonLossTie 5 TeePee Tire-Ken52 4 Florida Eye Roger52 2 Great Clips Angelo43 3 Cebert Wealth Bill43 1 Dr. Dunn Marty241 6 Wiseway Jimmy061Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... 14 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com OTOW Lions to hold Veterans Day service at 10 a.m. OTOW HAPPENINGS The Central Florida Master Choir is proud to present its seasonal concert, Carols from Around the World.

Compiled by Alan Gold HOW THEY VOTED Read the classifieds I n this latest Grisham novel the author works in a new kink to an old formula. His unlikely hero is David Zinc, Harvard grad and at only 31 a thoroughly burned out young lawyer. One morning he wigs out on the 93rd floor of his prestigious Chicago law firm and bolts. When the elevator began its descent, David Zinc started to laugh. The spinning and nausea were gone. The pressure on his chest vanished. He was doing it! He was leaving the sweatshop of Rogan Rothberg and saying farewell to the nightmare. He, David Zinc, of all the thousands of miserable associates and junior partners in the tall buildings of downtown Chicago, he and he alone had found the spine to walk away that gloomy morning. He heads for a bar and after drinking all day ends Novel is not vintage Grisham material B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington up on seedy Preston Avenue in the office of Finley & Figg, a two-lawyer firm specializing in DUIs, car wrecks, and cheap divorces. Drunk and disorderly, Zinc insists he wants to be hired by ambulance chasers Oscar Finley and Wally Figg. Caught off guard, they take him in. Though consigned to a dusty attic for an office, Zinc couldnt be happier. Hes home every night for dinner and now that hes relaxed and available for sex instead of crashing after a 90-hour week, he soon impregnates his pretty wife Helen. Meanwhile, recovering alcoholic Wally Figg is on another of his get-richquick schemes. This time hes putting together a mass tort suit aimed at a Big Pharma company that makes Krayoxx, a cholesterol-lowering drug. As a result of his routine visits to funeral homes hes discovered that among the deceased several had been taking Krayoxx. Oscar Finley is dismissive of the idea and David is skeptical but Wally, undeterred, forges ahead. If you think you know where this is heading, you may be right, but then again you may be wrong. In any case, although the novel is comic and readable, its not vintage Grisham. Except for Wally and Oscar, the characters are flat. And we only see flashes of the old Grisham in some of the court scenes.

Shes the girl next door and no ordinary woman. She got her first guitar a used Harmony gut-string Christmas day, age 11 and taught herself Red River Valley before nightfall. By 14, she was writing and playing music at hometown events, studying works from a remarkably diverse palette of artists Guthrie to Gershwin, Leonard Cohen to Leonard Bernstein, Bonnie Raitt to Beverly Sills then graduated college with a degree in performing arts and hit the road from the lower 48 states to Japan, Canada and Mexico to launch her own music career. After taking a break to bring two sons into the world, she burst back onto the acoustic music scene in 1995.

I was reminded recently that the only thing growing in my family tree are fruits and nuts. Personally, I am not sure if I am a fruit or a nut. Just do not ask my wife. I had been away for so long I had forgotten many things about my family. My recent visit served as a refresher course reminding me why I had moved away in the first place. Memory sometimes pays little tricks causing us to remember the good old days and forgetting that sprinkled in among the good are ample portions of what I call good-challenged moments and characters. I cannot speak about anybody elses family; my family seems to run the gamut between good and bad. I certainly have some wonderful relatives but then, I also have those who are on the other side of that description. Overall, they serve to make my family what it is today. I enjoyed visiting with some of my relatives I had not seen for years. In fact, I could not remember the last time I had seen some of them. For the most part, it was a wonderful time of family reunion. I had really forgotten about good old Aunt Bessie. She has always been one of my favorite aunts. Nobody knows how old she really is, and she aint telling. Conferring with some of my older relatives none could remember a time when good old Aunt Bessie was not around. Some of us have guessed her age and we figure she is probably our oldest living relative. One of the oddities about good old Aunt Bessie has to do with her physical appearance. As far as anybody could remember, she was always consumed with her looks. Not just her clothing but her face as well. The one thing that was anathema to her was a wrinkle. She has what we all said behind her back, a wrinkle-phobia. If I had the money she spent on wrinkle creams I could retire and live a life of luxury. I do remember a time (and I had forgotten it until now and I just hoped she did) when I was not Aunt Bessies favorite nephew. It was years ago and I had not seen her for a while and when I did see her, I said, half jokingly, Is that a new wrinkle, Aunt Bessie? You would have thought I had shot her only child. She shrieked and then went to the bathroom to examine her face. She was so irate with me that she did not speak to me for over a year. Of course, looking back, there was no downside to that. I was tempted to remind her of that incident, but I remembered the old hymn, Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin. Then there was Uncle Harold. I had not seen him for I cannot remember how long. When I saw him, I noticed he had not changed. I think he was wearing the same suspenders he wore the last time I saw him. His suspenders were a fashion statement, according to him, but nobody knew exactly what they were saying. The great thing about Uncle Howard was his stories. He had a repertoire of stories that he repeated ad nauseam. Behind his back we often said, Uncle Howard will tell no stories he hasnt told a thousand times before. Probably the most amusing thing about his stories was the fact that he often confused the punchline of one-story with the punchline of another story. None of his punchlines ever went with the story. That made them even funnier. We laughed, he thought we were laughing at his story, we were really laughing at him. Just before I was ready to leave, who should come in but dear old Aunt Sylvia. As soon as I saw her, I smiled. Not only was I glad to see her, but I remembered her. If anybody was the cats meow, it was Aunt Sylvia. She loved to go out to eat, particularly with a group. I thought of the last time we all went out to eat together and Aunt Sylvia was with us. One of her peculiarities was along the line of tipping the waitress. She was the self-appointed guru of making sure the waitress got a good tip. When everybody finished eating and the bill had come, Aunt Sylvia would take charge. She would collect money from each person for the tip. If you did not give enough, she made you dig into your pocket again until you came up with an amount she was happy with to give to the waitress. With appropriate pomp and circumstance, she would call the waitress over to our table and present her with the tip of the evening. As I was flying home, a thought tugged at my mind; if the world is made up of such people like my relatives, what chance does the world really have? The world, as God has designed it, is made up of all kinds of people that He loves with an everlasting love. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). Thinking of my family on the plane coming home I thought, why am I the only sane person in my family? Then another thought emerged. Or, am I?The Rev. James L.

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 www.smcitizen.com (ironically) of the Memorial Day Parade I had just attended. He went to Grove City College, where I teach, and then followed at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh, two outstanding medical schools. So, I said to Blake as I scribbled notes, bachelors at Grove City, and then masters at Penn and M.D. at Pitt? No, no, Blake replied. I never got a degree. Thats something else people dont understand. Back then, you did as much schooling as you could afford and needed. Thats how it went. Indeed. That, too, is something lost over the years. Today, for way too many students, college is a four-year partyactually, a six-year party. Its not about studying, training, honing a skill or the life of the mind. You have fun, buy a degree without, hopefully, losing your soul and parents hard-earned savings. Worse, its often a scandalous rip-off, as universities charge obscene prices for what they provide. Karl Blakes generation wouldnt dare waste a dime of that hard-earned money. Blake told me how he went to college for $87 per semester, scraping together a handful of semesters. His experience had been like Frank Kravetzs, who attended just enough college to learn the engineering he needed to enter the field and make a nice career at Westinghouse after the war. Folks like Frank and Blake got more education in four semesters than youngsters today get in four years (or six years). Karl Blake got the education to enter medicine and launch a long, productive career in general and specialized surgery. He got the education post-war America needed. He credits programs like V-1, V12, and ASTP which he views as unusually far-sighted in planning. Dr. Karl E. Blake never planted a flag at Iwo Jima or stormed the beaches of Normandy. He did nothing dramatic, but he did do something extremely important, as did thousands of Americans like him who fought the battle for post-war civilized society. Blakes wartime training allowed him to save numerous lives after the war, far more than he might have saved in combat. Is there a Karl Blake in your family, on your street, at your church? Talk to him or her. Record the story. Get it on-record. As Dr. Blake says, Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it. Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science at Grove City College and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values. His books include The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism and his latest release, Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. GUEST CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why blame Obama?Why is President Obama being blamed for the bad economy that was started during the Bush years? Where were all of the job creators during this period that House Speaker John Boehner keeps talking about and who also didnt create jobs during the Bush or Obama years? Speaker Boehner says we have a spending problem that started during the last couple of years that is bringing this country down. This country was on the brink of disaster because of two foreign wars created by the Bush administration. Boehner was in a position of responsibility during all of these years and has voted to bankrupt this country and he still claims that Obama is the cause of jobless Americans. The Republicans also claim that Obama is creating class warfare on the rich by asking that they pay the same percentage of income tax that they paid during the Clinton years. The Republicans remember how bad the Clinton years were but forget that the United States was not only paying down the deficit they were also expanding employment opportunities for Americans. How can the Republicans be proud of their actions in voting down every jobs bill that the president has proposed that would have given jobs to teachers, policemen, firemen and building contractors. Why is there so much grandstanding and back slapping going on by the Republicans who havent found a camera or microphone that they didnt like. You would think that they would use these opportunities to create jobs rather than their own self promotion. Jerry Segovis OTOW Americas first National AnthemIve written a number of articles to the Citizen, most of which have been to complain about an injustice or to solve a problem affecting all of us. But, this time its to ask a simple question. How many of you out there know what the title of our first National Anthem might be. If you do let me know through your letters to the Citizen. Its one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written and music being my major in college, I should know. It was written by the first professional musician in the United States. He was born in 1746 and died in 1800. A true patriot who wrote many pieces of great music during the Revolution. His name is William Billings and the first National Anthem was CHESTER. Go to YouTube or Google chrome and you will find it. Im for going back to Chester.

St. RoadBe aware of lung cancerNovember is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we dedicate ourselves to increasing awareness and knowledge of the issues surrounding lung cancer. The American Cancer Society (ACS) reports that nearly 85 percent of all lung cancer cases in the United States are smoking related and 30 percent of all cancer deaths. About six out of 10 people with lung cancer die within a year of being diagnosed, and the expected five-year survival rate for people with lung cancer is just 16 percent. These numbers are frightening, yet its estimated that over 43 million Americans are current smokers. There are many researchers, physicians, pharmacists and other healthcare providers who are dedicated to finding better ways to diagnose and treat lung cancer, and there are many studies in progress right now that offer hope to patients battling the disease and their families. But the fact remainsthe best way to defeat lung cancer is to prevent it. So, please help in the fight against lung cancer by quitting smoking, encouraging your friends, family and neighbors to quit smoking, and speaking with your children about not smoking. By reducing the number of people who smoke, we will ultimately reduce the number of lung cancer deaths each year. Hayley Creasey, RN Ocala Oncology Liaison B ruce Mozert, inventor of the underwater camera housing and photographer of all the major swimming stars of the 1930s and 1940s for MGM and other studios, will be our speaker at the next Photography Club meeting. Mozert is 94 years old and still works in his studio near Silver Springs five day per week. He sells hand colored prints from those old negatives. He can tell us how he produced smoke and champagne bubbles under water! He can explain how he produced color prints before color film existed. This will be a fascinating program which will be of interest to almost everyone. All Oak Run residents are invited to this program at the Orchid Club on Monday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. We are sorry, but we have to restrict this program to Oak Run residents only.

Friday, November 11, 2011 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the Citizen It was nothing dramatic, says Dr. Karl E. Blake of Wexford, Pennsylvania, retired surgeon and member of the World War II generation, but it was important, and no one has written about it, at least that Ive seen. I got an unexpected call from Dr. Blake last Memorial Day, mid-afternoon, after just returning from the annual Memorial Day Parade in Mercer, Pennsylvania, which every year is a scene right out of a Norman Rockwell portraitthe essence of small-town America. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had published a profile I did of a local 87-year-old vet (same age as Blake) named Frank Kravetz, a former POW who did time in the hell-hole of the Nazis Nuremberg Prison Camp. I concluded that article with a plea to aging vets to share their unique experiences with the current generation, imploring them not to take this invaluable history to the grave. Well, said the soft-spoken Blake, reminding me of my own words, Ive got something that I dont think people know about. Someone needs to record this. Get it on-record. Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it. Okay, I told him. Start talking. What people today dont understand, Blake began, getting right to the point, is that in 1942, 1943, and so on, the government had no idea how long the war was going to last. That caught my attention right away. So true, I interrupted, today we know the dates: Normandy, June 1944. V-E Day, May 1945. The surrender of Japan, September 1945. But when you were living through it, you didnt know. Thats right, said Blake. And the government didnt know, and the government was making plans for the long-term. There were measures that the government took to get a supply of educated people dentists, physicians, all kinds of things. American society was going to need professional people. So many young men were serving in the war overseas. I hadnt thought of that. I hadnt read about it eitherBlakes point precisely. Blake told me about three government programs, which he abbreviated as V-1, V-12, and ASTP (Army Specialized Training Program). The former were both Navy operations. Blake was in V-1s. These were rigorous academic programs heavy in math and science. Among the goals was to create a non-combat professional class. Blake was trained as a doctor. Blake had grown up in Mercer, Pennsylvaniathe very site www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 11, 2011 L ast week, I received a news release from Amtrak, the train people, that I could now catch a bus in The Villages (I already could do it in Ocala) to catch an Amtrak train. They seemed very excited about that. My first thought was, if I wanted to ride a bus, Id ride a bus. Im riding Amtrak because I want to ride a train. So I started thinking, what are the comparisons like? Suppose I want to go from Ocala to New Yorks Penn Station, which is where Amtrak goes. What would my choices be? Lets say I wanted to leave on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and return Monday Dec. 12. First, Amtrak. Round trip to New Yorks Penn Station would be $284. You can take two carryon luggage pieces and check three bags free. This, by the way, was in a coach seat, not a compartment. I would have to have someone take me to the bus, because in Ocala, you cant park your car overnight at the station. Seems to me that isnt good for stimulating usage, but what do I know. I catch the train in Jacksonville, then go to New York City, where I wouldnt arrive until Wednesday evening. By the time I got to a hotel, checked in, etc., it would probably be time to find something to eat and go to sleep in the city that never sleeps. After all, I had spent the previous night in a trains coach seat. And about food. Theres a little note on the Amtrak website that coach passengers are charged extra for meals. How nice. Coming home, I would leave on Tuesday in mid-morning and get back to Ocala Wednesday morning. Second, Greyhound bus. This is definitely the cheaper route, but probably the least comfortable. You would leave Ocala at 1:05 p.m. Tuesday and get to Penn Station in New York on Wednesday at 8:05 p.m. You have to change buses in Lake City, Richmond, Virginia, and at an early stop in New York. Presumably you could get off wherever that is and take a taxi to the Penn Station area and your hotel, but thats an extra expense. Coming back, I cant leave New York on Monday, but I would have to leave on Sunday, change in Richmond and Atlanta. Total cost for the bus is $186 listed, doesnt say anything about taxes. Of course, you have to eat in the bus stop restaurants at the stations, not always an appetizing amenity. Third, flying. I did a search from Gainesville to JFK Airport in New York City, and came up with a Delta flight for $256 after taxes. I would leave at 6:38 and get to New York at 11:12 a.m. On Tuesday, giving me an extra day up there (but the hotel is $300 a night or so.) Id have to get a taxi or limo from the airport to the Penn Station area to arrive at the same place as the bus and train. Coming back is about the same but the fare I quoted is round trip. Id also have to pay to park my car in Gainesville for a week or so. Finally, there is driving, which, no secret, is my favorite. If I left Ocala at 6 a.m. On Tuesday, and really felt energetic, I could drive all the way through. However, Im not as young as I used to be, so Id probably stop after about 12 hours in Richmond, on the north side. Id get up and leave not too early in the morning to avoid rush hour in D.C., and get to my hotel in New York about 2 p.m. Mileage about 900 miles. My car gets 30 miles to the gallon and 300 miles to a tank. Three tanks of gas at about $30 each is $90, or $180 round trip. One night in a motel about $60, but not that much for food. Youd be surprised how long a bucket of chicken can last when youre driving. Same expenses in New York, for the hotel, but an additional charge for parking the car, which is probably more expensive in New York than in Gainesville. What do all these comparisons show? For most people, the air route is the best, and fastest and probably most comfortable. I say most people because some of us dont fly. But we certainly dont take a bus to get to a train. Putting it all together, I guess my dream of seeing the Mets play at home in Citi Field is just a pipe dream, and wont happen. But, of course, there always is an alternative.

T his Friday is Veterans Day, a time for us to honor all those who put on a uniform and serve in the military to help protect our country. Many people confuse this day with Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in May. Memorial Day honors all those who gave their lives in service of their country. Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors all veterans, living and dead. Its particularly important to honor those who are still with us. Although they didnt make the ultimate sacrifice that their deceased comrades made, they still gave up a chunk of their lives to protect and serve. Some came back with lifelong scars, both physical and mental. Fridays the day we should let them all know that we appreciate their service, whether in combat or not. Much attention is paid now to the veterans of World War II, especially with the Honor Flights that have provided them a chance to see a memorial built in Washington, D.C., in the honor of the service of the troops in that war. But, sadly, the number of World War II veterans is thinning out. A simple math deduction shows why: If a person in the military were 18 years old in 1945 when the war ended, he would be 84 years old today. But there are many veterans of wars and campaigns since then: Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. They are still around and, in many cases, active. This is the day to honor them, especially since they are here to receive the praise that they deserve. So take time this Friday to honor a veteran in the community. As we saw on a bumper sticker once, If you enjoy your freedom, thank a vet. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Take it one step at a time, Lamb, and soon all will be made clear. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That difficult situation youve been dealing with continues to call for careful handling. Avoid quickly made choices that might not stand up when theyre finally put to the test. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still have lots of evaluating to do before you can consider making a commitment. Its better to move cautiously than to risk stumbling into a major misunderstanding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously peevish partner offers to be more helpful with your problems. But remember: The final choice is yours. Be guided by what you feel is the right thing to do. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As the Big Cat, you can sometimes be pretty rough on those you suspect of betrayal. The best advice is to pull in those claws and listen to the explanation. It might surprise you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your inner voice usually guides you well. But a note of caution: This is a period of mixed signals for you, so be careful you dont misunderstand the messages youre getting. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Cupids call beckons both single Librans looking for a new love, as well as couples hoping to strengthen their relationships. A workplace problem is quickly resolved. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Its been a hectic time for you, and you might want to take a break to restore both body and soul. Youll then be set to face new challenges later this month. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Its a good idea to take a more conservative approach to your financial situation right now. Some plans made earlier this year might need readjusting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a fine time to move boldly into those new opportunities I promised would open up for you. Check them over, and then choose the best one for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Your selfassurance is growing stronger, and you should now feel more confident about making that long-deferred decision about a possible commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre very close to reaching your goal. But be wary of distractions that can lure you off-course and leave you stranded far away from where you really want to be. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an inner sight that helps you see into peoples hearts. You would be an excellent psychologist or social worker. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure

Even the animals know they cant wait until the last minute to prepare for a comfortable winter. Take a lesson from our furry and feathered friends and prepare for your own comfortable retirement. Autumns retirement lessons S OCIAL SECURITY A W Adon Williams Theres no doubt about it: Losing a job can be stressful. The thought of starting over can be unnerving, particularly if youve worked for the same company for a while. Get The FactsFirst, make an appointment with your companys Human Resources Department and get answers to these important questions: Can you negotiate a later departure date? This could give you more time to look for another job. Are you entitled to severance? If so, how much? n Will you receive payment for unused vacation days? If not, you should schedule them as soon as possible. How long will you be entitled to health coverage? And at what cost? Likewise, can you maintain your insurance policy? If so, at what rate? Whats involved in transferring, borrowing or withdrawing your 401(k) funds? Are you entitled to unemployment compensation? If so, what documentation do you need? Leave on Good TermsWhen your last day comes, handling yourself with professionalism and maturity will serve you better in the end. Although these are difficult circumstances, focus on what youve accomplished for the company and the skills youll take with you. Take any awards you may have earned, as well as nonprivileged work samples theyll be of interest to prospective employers. Take Constructive Actions In your search for a new job: Notify your references, including past employers, that youre job hunting. Update your resume, quantifying your accomplishments whenever possible (e.g. exceeded sales goal by 8 percent). Register with employment agencies and/or search firms. (Ask in advance if they charge for their services). Say yes to every interview, even if it isnt the job you want. Its good practice. Familiarize yourself with the companies youre interviewing with. Being prepared will go a long way with prospective employers. Follow up on your interviews with a thank-you e-mail or note. Although it is difficult, losing your job doesnt have to be an end.

To sign up, couples are required to submit their love stories at www.GauseAndSonDiamondDash.com. The grand prize diamond ring is currently on display at Gause & Son Jewelers along with details on how to play. Gause & Son Jewelers is located at 14 S.E. Broadway St. in Ocala. On Saturday, Nov. 12, Gause & Son Diamond Dash participants will meet in downtown Ocala to begin the hunt.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 Stormwater work on 484Work to preserve the health of the Rainbow River continues in Marion County. Starting Nov. 14 and continuing through February 2012, the Marion County Office of the County Engineer will implement the final phase in a series of stormwater retrofits addressing the water quality of runoff discharging into the 5.6-mile-long river in Dunnellon. The project will involve construction of a wet detention pond and landscaping on the south side of County Road 484 (East Pennsylvania Avenue) west of the Dr. Curtis Nelson Bridge. Previous project phases included stormwater retrofits to the bridge and to County Road 484 east of that location. Construction will take place during daylight hours on weekdays only. Motorists may experience temporary lane closures on County Road 484 near the Camp Drive intersection to accommodate construction vehicles entering and exiting the site. Sidewalk access and on-street parking may be temporarily unavailable in the vicinity of the construction. Crews will place proper signage and barricades. Traffic will be maintained through the work zone at all times. Adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances may affect construction schedules. For information on this project, contact Shane Williams, P .E., Ph.D., Marion County Office of the County Engineer, at 352-671-8686. 0 0 0 9 R L N Be at least 18 years of age.

It's an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). "The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public," said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement. "We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators." The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When people's information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservation-minded people don't even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, don't forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. There are many other ways that concerned citizens can directly assist the FWC. Angler Tag Return Hotline: Call 800-367-4461. Burmese Pythons, or other exotic reptiles: Call 888-483-4681.

VIETNAM CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 O n Sunday, Nov. 6, around 3 p.m., deputies conducted a traffic stop on a silver Dodge Magnum for a tint violation. The driver, Mario Vargas, did not have a valid drivers license. The passenger initially gave deputies a false name and date of birth. With Vargas consent, deputies searched the car and found marijuana and cocaine. While deputies tried to identify the passenger with the Rapid ID Scan system, the suspect fled on foot. He was quickly apprehended and identified as Ramone Williams, who had an active warrant. Williams admitted to swallowing eight (8) pieces of crack cocaine and was transported to a local hospital. Deputies searched the rest of the vehicle and located a safe and duffle bag. The contents of the safe and bag included: 40 credit cards in 40 different names. Ledgers containing more than 100 Social Security numbers and names. $8,300 in U.S. currency. $9,600 in blank money orders. After questioning him about the items found, suspect Vargas reported that he was helping his cousin operate an income tax refund check scam. Ramone Williams was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, resisting without violence, tampering with evidence and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. Mario Vagas was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license (DWLSR), identity theft, obtaining a credit card by fraudulent means. Additional arrests are pending. Sentenced Tyler John McPartland, 25, was sentenced Friday, Nov. 4, to 35 years in prison with a 20-year minimum mandatory. McPartland Suspect charged with identity theft, related crimes was convicted for shooting at four Marion County Sheriffs Office deputies when they arrived at an apartment along Southwest 21st Place, Ocala. It was near 1 a.m., Nov. 8, 2009, when 911 got the call: a woman stated she had been threatened and the suspect had a gun. The Marion County Sheriffs Office responded. Before long McPartland left the apartment and was met by two deputies who told McPartland to stop. McPartland refused and then pulled out a 9mm semi-automatic gun and began firing at the deputies who returned fire. McPartland then ran toward two other MCSO deputies and McPartland shot at them. They fired shots at McPartland. No one was struck. McPartland continued to run and soon came upon a third team of MCSO deputies who gave McPartland a series of verbal commands to halt and show his hands. McPartland finally complied. DUI case A Miami man was accused of DUI after he was stopped in the 4000 block of State Road 200 for failing to maintain a single lane. After allegedly failing the field sobriety test, Frank Farray, 39, was taken to jail, where he refused to supply a breath sample.

During the Annual Election Period, which runs through December 7, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to make changes to their Medicare Prescription Drug or Advantage plans. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program is available to provide free help for Florida Medicare beneficiaries as they carefully evaluate their health care options. The open enrollment period is a sensitive time for beneficiaries as several pieces of personal information are needed to compare and enroll in plans. SHINE counselors provide free, unbiased, and confidential insurance counseling and community education regarding Medicare options and prescription drug assistance for elders, their family and caregivers.
