Above, students from Hammett Bowen Elementary march in during the presentation of the colors. Juliana Oyola-Pabon and Trinity Hopkins of Hammett Bowen took turns reading tributes. Leeward Air Ranch War-birds made three passes over the park in a flyover. Hammett Bowen singers entertained the crowd with a patriotic song during the ceremony. Marie Kindler, a resident at The Bridge at Ocala, who has been at The Bridge a little over a year, celebrated her 102nd birthday on Wednesday, Nov. 16. She has one daughter, Evelyn. She was born in Hamburg, Germany, moved to the U.S. in 1928 when she was 18 years old. Marie lived with a very nice Jewish family. She attended school to learn English at night. She worked for the Jewish family in their home as the upstairs girl. She made the beds and cleaned the bathrooms. She met her husband at a dance. They dated four years before getting married. They remained married for 52 years. Marie and her husband owned apartment houses, about 70 apartments. She moved to Florida in 1971 to West Palm Beach and remained there until moving to Dunnellon in 2009. She credits her longevity to taking no medications and eating well; this comes from tiny Marie, who weighs about 90 pounds. Her favorite time of the day is every morning at 10 when she goes to play bingo. Marie Kindler Marie Kindler turns 102 at The Bridge In Ocala homes, businesses, schools, and churches, people are piling up shoe boxesfilled not with shoes, but toys, school supplies and necessity items, lovingly selected for a child in need. Thousands of Ocala kids are participating in Operation Christmas Child, the worlds largest Christmas project of its kind, to make a statement to needy children worldwide: You are not forgotten! Operation Christmas Child uses simple gift-filled shoe boxes to let hurting children know that they are loved.

The shoe boxes are then processed and prepared to be hand-delivered to children worldwide using whatever means necessary sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, helicopters, boats, elephants and dog sleds. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected 86 million shoe box gifts and hand-delivered them to impoverished children in more than 130 countries. This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 8.5 million gift-filled shoe boxes. In Ocala, were aiming to contribute 15,000 shoe box gifts, said Marlene Reuscher, volunteer area coordinator for Ocala. Its a big goal, but I believe we can reach it. Ocala kids realize that as tough as things are here in the United States, there are children around the world who have so much less. This small sacrifice can have lifelong impact on a needy child. Anyone can participate in Operation Christmas Child right now. National Collection Week is now until Monday. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, or to find the nearest drop-off site, call 352-629-6079 or visit www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology that allows donors to follow their shoe box to find out the destination country where it will be handdelivered to a child in need. Operation Christmas Child is a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritans Purse, headed by Franklin Graham. While Samaritans Purse works to meet critical physical needs, such as clean water, health care and food, Operation Christmas Child addresses a need for which children are just as desperatethe need to have hope and feel loved.

The Marion County Sheriffs Office is trying to identify and locate a suspect who jumped a counter to snatch nearly 800 pills during a grand theft. Around 1:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 11, a white male, about 6-feet 2 inches tall and weighting about 250 pounds, entered the CVS pharmacy, 10255 S.W. 86th Circle, Ocala (along State Road 200 at the intersection of 103rd Street Road) and jumped the rear pharmacy counter. He grabbed two large bottles of hydrocodone and fled on foot across S.R. 200 and ran southwesterly down 103rd Street Road. He was hiding his face with a white cloth (bandana). He jumped the counter again and left through the fire exit. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 352-3687867. You could earn up to $1,000 for your information.DUI casesTwo men were accused of DUI in recent incidents along State Road 200. On Nov. 15, Brian John Kielty, 42, of Southwest 73rd Street, was stopped for failing to stay in a single line along the highway in the 5000 block. According to the report, Kielty said he had five or six beers at a local bar. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail and refused to provide a sample of his breath. A computer check showed he had three prior DUI arrests. On Nov. 12, Robert Marvin Melton, 64, of Southwest 104th Lane, was accused of DUI. A deputy reported he saw Meltons vehicle leave the parking lot at the convenience store at S.R. 200 and 103rd Street Road at about 9:50 p.m. and travel west on 200 in the eastbound lanes. He then allegedly crossed the grass median into the westbound lanes and then turned right into Pine Run. The deputy caught the car after it had turned west onto Southwest 104th Lane. His breath registered .179 and .182 alcohol, which are well above the legal limit of .08. Drug arrestsThe Florida Department of Law Enforcement Putnam County Sheriffs Office, along with the Palatka Police Department, Marion County Sheriffs Office, Jacksonville Sheriffs Office and the Tri-County Narcotics Task Force arrested three men after an intensive two-month joint investigation. During the Putnam and Marion County portions of this operation, agents seized three kilograms of cocaine, two firearms and $69,167 in cash. Wesley Dallas of Palatka, and Milton Webb of Palatka were both charged with trafficking in cocaine (over 400 grams) and Curtis Evans of Ocala was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted Felon.

Some people have told us that they would love to have an animal as part of their lives, but they are not ready to commit full time to being a dog or cat parent. An alternative to adopting a pet that you will devote a lifetime of care for is to temporarily foster a needy little bundle of joy. At this time, the Animal Center desperately needs your help to foster their youngest kittens until they reach 2 lbs. When the kittens are very small, they need to be cared for in a separate room from the main cat adoption area. The best way for the kittens to thrive and reach that critical 2 lb. mark is to be raised in a home by a loving caregiver. Once the kitten reaches the ideal weight, you can return him to the Center where he will be placed for adoption with the other cats. At this time of year when many of us are looking for ways to do good and reach out to those in need in the community, this is a way for animal lovers to give back. So please if you have the time and desire to help, give the Animal Center a call at 352671-8700 and ask about the kitty foster program. Or you can go online to www.marioncountyfl.org/a nimal.htm and fill out a foster application. In addition to the kitty program, you can also foster a cat. Did you know that the Animal Center takes in upwards of 6,000 cats a year? Thats a formidable job for any facility and now you can help them give these cats and kittens the best care possible. Before we get to the dogs of the month, we want to let you know that the Animal Center is currently filled to the brim with wonderful dogs waiting to be adopted. So if youve been thinking about adopting, nows the time to go. Although we usually show you small and medium sized dogs each month, there are many large purebred and mixed breed dogs available, especially Labradors, hounds, and their mixes. If youre a large dog lover, or live on a farm, or have a moderate sized yard, or even access to a dog park please dont overlook the larger breeds as they are often the last ones to get adopted. Our first dog is Ray, the 6 year old beagle pictured here. Youll notice hes a little pudgy, so he needs you to help him whittle down to his once svelte figure. This very happy boy loves people and is a laid back sort of fellow whose idea of heaven is to sit and relax. He leaves all that toy playing to the energetic Jack Russells and such. Just think how much of a challenge it would be to find a toy or a game he likes, to get you both off the couch. You can only sit around so long, you know, so if its your mission to get some activity back into your life why not get active with Ray. Hell love you for it oh, you know hell love you anyway but itll do both your hearts good. Our next guy is Lenny, the 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. Lenny was found as a stray and brought to the Center. If youre the brainy type who likes their dogs smart, youve met your match in Lenny. Hes an intelligent soul whose favorite commands are sit, down, and paw. Were sure you can add to his bag of tricks. He also walks quite well on a leash, so hell be a pleasure to go about town with. When your neighbors get pulled down the street by their canine pals, you can chuckle to yourself knowing that Lenny is such a gentleman. Rays ID number is A059671 and Lennys is A060377. Please give Animal Services their ID numFoster parents needed for several young kittens ber when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours.Keep Your Dog on Heartworm Preventative All Year Round As most of you know, heartworm is a parasitic illness that can be fatal to your dog if left untreated.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenAt Joy Lutheran Church every child is a winner! On Saturday, Nov. 12, the Flag Football players and cheerleaders were awarded their Certificates of Achievement in a ceremony conducted by the Rev. Edward Holloway, Jr., senior pastor. There were no scoreboards or competition in this program but just an opportunity to learn a skill, good sportsmanship and meet new friends. Pastor Ed asked the children, Who was the most valuable player? and all the kids raised their hands. There were more than 100 children and parents present for this event. Each child was individually called forward to receive their certificate, a DVD of the Big Story, and a new sports bag. The coaches and all the helpers who made the flag football season a success were thanked for their participation. Flag football awards presented at Joy Lutheran PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENUpward Flag Football season ends with a picnic following the award ceremony for all the participants at Joy Lutheran Church. Pastor Ed closed the ceremony with a song that he played on the banjo and had the children sing called This Little Light of Mine, which encourages them all to recognize their inner talents and strengths. He reminded all in attendance that Upward Sports is a national nondenominational program that encourages parents to raise up their children the best they can. He invited them to come back for the spring soccer program in which registration will start in January. Joy Lutheran Church is on Southwest State Road 200 at 83rd Place, Ocala. For further information contact 352-854-4509 ext. 221. (More on next page) monthly basis to all dogs to prevent this terrible condition. Some people, however, only give this preventative in the warmer months, and some not at all. If youre taking chances with your dog like this, please be aware that the only approved medicine to treat this disease is currently unavailable across the country due to manufacturing issues. Veterinarians and shelters are making do with the supply they have, but once they run out, they will not be able to optimally treat your pet. This means that heartworm positive dogs in certain shelters may be put down instead of treated. In other types of shelters, these dogs may not be taken in. For veterinarians, it means that alternative care will be provided with the outcome uncertain. So here is a case where the proverbial ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Keep your dog on heartworm preventative all year round so this isnt an issue for you and your loving companion. SPCA NewsThe SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for those dates and come out and join us. Well let you know about our guest speakers in a future column. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at 352-362-0985 to find out more.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 Doggy ExpoWith Thanksgiving just around the corner, Herbert W. Silverman, MBA from New York Life Insurance Company held our first Doggy Expo at Petco last Saturday. With a perfect day for going outside, both people and dogs were delighted with a cornucopia of all the pet ideas including free advice from the Paddock Park Animal Center, adoptions from the Marion County Animal Services, tips from Petco about grooming and training and a doggy picture from New York Life Insurance Company. With volunteers from West Port High School National Honor Society and live remotes from Thunder 102.9 FM, everyone agreed it was terrific. What to do with rollover funds BY HERB SILVERMAN Special to the CitizenAt some point, many people with retirement or employer-sponsored investment accounts will find themselves faced with the decision of what to do with rollover funds. This can happen when you change jobs and cash out a 401(k), or when you retire. In either case, it is important to think through your options. Ideally, its best to choose a strategy that meets your retirement needs, minimizes the impact of taxes and avoids penalties. Please note this is a general overview, and tax laws can be tricky, so be sure to talk to an accountant and/or tax attorney before making any financial decision.Roll It OverOne possible option is to directly roll your entire distribution into a new Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or an employer-sponsored 401(k). Either one would allow you to continue to defer taxes and allow you to continue building your retirement savings for the future.Leave It Where It IsYou may want to keep funds in your employers plan until you reach the plans retirement age, if that is an option. This may be ideal if you want to take advantage of certain investment options or managed money services available in your existing plan. Your funds will remain tax-deferred and can later be moved to a new employers qualified plan or an IRA.Take the Taxable DistributionDepending on your situation, you may choose to withdraw the funds from your 401(k). Although you will have immediate access to your savings, there are a few things to consider when taking a lump-sum distribution. First, your money will no longer have the potential to grow tax-deferred and it will be subject to ordinary state and federal income taxes. Additionally, if you are under age 59, a 10 percent IRS penalty may apply. Please note: Rollovers must be completed no later than the 60th day after the day you receive the distribution.This educational thirdparty article is being provided as a courtesy by Herbert W.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com During our endless election season the expression free markets never wears out. Some politicians believe and preach that free market is a national value worthy of inclusion with patriotism, motherhood, apple pie and baseball. The problem is there aint no free markets. The term free market as used by todays politicians is a misnomer. Politicians use it a lot because it sounds righteous. The idea of buying and selling things free from interference or control began with a guy named Adam Smith back in the 18th century, around the time America was becoming a nation. His timing was good. Our colonists were irritated by the king of England sticking his nose into how they did business and trying to tax what they bought and sold. So they declared their independence and told the king to get lost. Free market based on supply and demand received a new boost from economist Milton Friedman in 1962 and has been a rallying cry of libertarians and conservatives ever since. Republicans cant say the words often enough, as if mumbling free market is some sort of mystical mantra. The phony part of the free market baloney is zillions of dollars of government subsidies, tax preferences, and laws that allow bad-boy businessmen to stay out of jail free, as evidenced by the corrupt manipulations which caused our current recession. In addition to volumes of controls, regulations, enticements, and all sorts of corporate welfare, government has become a major investor in the markets for non-military goods and services. Recent examples have been the Obama administrations spending millions just in time to help a green energy company go bankrupt, and offering tax subsidies to manipulate development of electric cars which will be sold to a few adventurous citizens at exorbitant prices. Hold on there! Isnt the Obama guy a Democrat? Sure, but everybody in Washington plays the free markets game even liberals. Gaining and keeping political power is the real name of the game. Re-quoting what we wrote on another occasion, free market evangelizing is power politics dressed up in a patriotic term intended to disguise government connivance in every aspect of our economy. Free market preaching by business is sanctimonious sounding cover-up of their solicitations for subsidies and tax credits, as well as manipulation www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 18, 2011 Sometimes, visiting some of the activities in Ocala makes you start thinking about some serious things. That was the case over the weekend when I went to Marion Woods to view a display connected to a Vietnam War prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton. Back in the 1960s, I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Because I was married and later, because I had a daughter, I didn't get drafted. I went as far as a pre-induction physical, and they made note of my allergies and hay fever, but I never heard anything again. I did, however, lose a couple of friends, Frank Campeau of Bergenfield, N.J.,and John Kapeluck of Cresskill, N.J. John died in combat, and Frank died on a shipboard fire just off the coast of Vietnam.There may have been more school mates that I don't know about. Like everyone else, I heard about the horrors of the war, both from a combat perspective and a prisoner of war view. So I was drawn to the display last weekend. There weren't that many artifacts, but two of them stood out. One was a salvaged door to a cell, with a small, barred window. You got an idea how poor a view these prisoners had. The other was really brutal. It was a lead item that attached to a piece of concrete, and it had curves in it where a pair of legs, small legs, would be anchored to that concrete. There were many pictures on display at this event over the Veterans Day weekend, and one of them just showed a pair of legs being shackled down by that piece of lead. It made you cringe when you looked at it. That meant that those prisoners were lying on concrete beds on their backs while being held. There were a lot of other pictures, a map showing the location of the prison, and an aerial view of the Hanoi buildings. A lot of soldiers who came back from Vietnam weren't treated very well by the average citizens of this country. It's too bad this display wasn't available in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It would have showed, much more than words, how cruel the North Vietnamese, and possibly the Red Chinese, were in their treatment of their prisoners. The display was courtesy of an unnamed man from Jacksonville who obtained the artifacts and transported them himself to the display site in southeastern Ocala. He wants his privacy, but was willing to make the display available to the public. If it ever comes back to this area, we'll make sure that we notify the public.

Last weeks news provided a lot of soul-searching, as people searched for answers. The arrest of a former Penn State assistant football coach on a 40-count indictment involving child sex abuse shook the country and cost the jobs of iconic Joe Paterno, head football coach, three school officials, including the president, and an assistant coach who saw one of the crimes in progress and made only the minimal report, never telling law enforcement authorities. Jerry Sandusky's arrest put the spotlight on this type of crime more than it has been in recent memory. Experts say, however, that this is just a small sample of what really goes on in many places in this country. Anyone who read the news reports last week will never have an excuse for not reporting incidents to the proper officials. Everyone now knows that the only way to cut back on these incidents is to be vigilant, listen to children and, most importantly, don't put them in situations where things can happen. We hope that all across the country last week there were parents speaking of a normally taboo situtation, issuing warnings to their children about both strangers and about those who are family members or friends. Parents should make sure their children are never alone with anyone who could take advantage of them, and yes, it does happen, even if folks don't think it can. And when parents get the children back from occasions such as this, question them thoroughly (but not threateningly) about what they did during the time away from the parents. Certainly there have been teachers, coaches and others who run children's programs who have taken advantage of their positions, but these people are in the minority. It's very important that the good people in these professions and activities listen to the kids and act on any information they may be given. Please keep the children safe. We don't like publishing stories about arrests for things like this, but we don't hesitate to do so, so everyone can be aware of what can happen.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Keep the children safe Hanoi Hilton artifacts make you think Jim Flynn Columnist GUEST COLUMN Government a player in free markets game BY S.M. POPIN Special to the CitizenFor three days in July of 1863, a village situated 118 miles southwest of Philadelphia experienced the largest battle on North American soil. Gettysburg is where more than 50,000 casualties occurred from July 1st to the 3rd. On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg to participate in the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. He spoke for about two minutes, while a well known contemporary orator, Edward Everett spoke for almost two hours preceding Mr. Lincoln. Can you recite a part, or recall any of Mr. Everetts words this day? How many will recognize Mr. Everetts skill, or contributions as a legislator in service to this country? He was Americas most admired and distinguished orator. In contrast, Lincolns words are remembered, venerated and recited more often through the ages than almost any other speech to date. He captured the very mood of the time with very few words, effectively honoring not only the fallen soldiers and those who continue to serve, but as a leader he attempts to assure the people that the nation will survive this great civil war. He comprehends the challenges, and stands firm, defined and dedicated to the ultimate resolve. What Lincoln did in his unique manner was to express in Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN, PAGE9 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKAbove, a POW cell door.

Royal Oaks Lady Niners Lowest Putts was the game on Nov. 3. Vange Bell was the winner and Eleanor Cerlenko was second. There was a fourway tie for third place between Rae Stover, Joyce Madill, Maureen Casner and Charlotte Green. Rae Stover won the closest to the pin contest. On Nov. 10, prior to teeing off on the first hole, each person chose 3 holes they did not want to be counted in their game score. Since we played the back nine, the 3 holes to choose seemed obvious, but wouldnt you know that several ladies played one or more of those three very well. You should have seen the faces as they came back to the club house! Rae Stover was the winner in Flight A with Vange Bell second. Joan Scholl was the winner in Flight B and Ilene Simnowitz was second. Congratulations to Phyllis Oldfield for her birdie on #11!

Former President George W. Bush suggested that consumers primary freedom and most important contribution to the nations economy is to shop and spend. Free marketers are in complete agreement. In addition to our freedom to spend, we have a periodic freedom to turn out of office those politicians who continue to blow all that free-market smoke in our ears. Free markets are as extinct as a free lunch. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 words what the majority of the country was feeling after over two years of war. All in about two minutes. For most Americans the address increased in popularity only after many, many years since he enunciated those words. It has been written that Lincoln was not entirely satisfied with his speech that day. Some were critical of the president, saying that he had not said enough, that even his invitation was merely an afterthought. The war had been going badly for the Union, but the victory four months earlier was an opportunity for redirection, and realistic optimism. Mr. Lincoln viewed it with others as evidence that the nation had turned the corner and headed for reunification of the states. The sacrifices were taking their toll on the nation with a strain on the economy and over 50,000 casualties alone at Gettysburg. Today, we are not engaged in a great civil war, but we are being tested, again and again. The question remains as it did then, can we endure, how will we endure? It is a question Lincoln examined, not only in his address at Gettysburg, but throughout his term as president. He echoed the sentiments of the people, both north and south. With our present administration and its unethical behavior, ask yourself at the core, are these people really governing as statesmen? If any government places individual goals above those of the people then they are not public servants but dictators, including either and all political parties. If the current occupant of the White House cannot effectively communicate in a few minutes with integrity, and without the drawn out egocentric didactic speech, he probably doesnt know what his subject matter is. Lincoln and the country in 1863 were more divided than today, but as a leader he asserted the union of states shall conquer the issues and dilemmas of that time. There was sincerity behind his words, a resolve and vision which would withstand any challenge. He was intelligent and humble enough to admit mistakes and change actions when needed, not years later as we observe these days. After the war ended and past his death and reconstruction, the country would be on the path to where we are today. If you arent there already, my battle cry to all is first know our history, read, investigate and question. You may find that many issues and attitudes will be defined and your perceptions illuminated by researching the past. It will begin to make sense with a little effort. Caution, do not rely on one source of information alone, check out at least three versions on the same subject to achieve a truer understanding. In our present time we, as the people, generally appear disconnected from the government that Lincoln and our Founding Fathers had represented. We continue to hold a sacred and inherent obligation to honor our veterans and all who serve in the armed forces. Those who served in every military conflict from the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War to the present engagements, must continue to receive approbation. This Saturday will mark the 148th anniversary of the speech that Mr. Lincoln offered at the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Last week we honored our nations veterans. Let us be reminded that we must continue to endure during these unsettled times, offering our last full measure of devotion, to our country, along with every member of the military. This was Lincolns message to the people, and it rings true to this day. POPINCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Useful idiotsIt is so easy to manipulate some people. The phrase useful idiots sums it up very nicely. We have these useful idiots with us in every generation, and in our generation in abundance, since the brain manipulation started decades ago. Our educated class is a class brainwashed, and propagandized by liberal professors who hijacked our educational system decades ago. All that money for phony education. I want a refund of my tax dollars used to pay for this nonsense. It cannot happen here. It already is happening. We are this close to subjugation. Open your eyes, look around you. Recently, I attended an event where I was searched every day, my belongings. The catch words are safety and security. That is just how easy it is. I no longer fly. The searchers, (fellow citizens) did their searching with relish, as do community patrols who are concerned with our safety, and security. A few days ago, I was issued an edict to keep my garage door closed at all times. It is supposed to be my garage door. Dont I have the right to decide if it is open or closed, for my convenience? Something so mundane is the bailiwick of citizen spies? We are told when, and how to use everything. Recycle, do not buy, buy only what you are told, you use too much to heat, drive too much, cook, two-minute showers, etc. Is that freedom? We must cut back, while millions are allowed to rush over our borders at will. These people are taking my water, and everything else I use. I am forced to share resources with them, like it or not. Logic should tell us something, but try to tell that to a liberal useful idiot. They want to hear none of this. Useful idiots are so devoid of common sense, and logic, and information. As a first step to rectify this situation may I humbly suggest useful idiots read: The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, just to see how bad things can get. If these useful idiots are prepared to experience this: Be my guest, but do not expect me to share the experience. I choose to decline. D.I.

Brand new this year was our Famous Italian Contest called Who Am I? It was well received and next year will be even better. Plans are well under way for the Christmas Party to be held at the Orchid Club on Dec. 14 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. There will be music for your dancing pleasure, 50/50, door prizes, Santa and free photos with Santa, as well as by the Christmas tree. We are asking each attending woman to bring a wrapped $5 gift which will be placed in Santas grab bag. Each participating woman will receive a ticket which will be redeemed when Santa arrives and exchanges this ticket for a gift from his bag. We will be having a parade prior to Santas arrival. We need volunteers! Please help us make this parade memorable. Contact either Eileen Leo at 352-873-0796 or Joan Sollitto at 352-598-3832 for assistance in putting your costume together. Christmas dinner will consist of prime rib, ham and stuffed grouper served with garlic mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, cannoli, soda, coffee and tea. Tickets at a cost of $15 per person will be on sale Nov. 30 in the Orchid Club card room from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Due to limited tickets available, this party will be for members only, on a first come, first served basis. Dues for 2012 will be collected during the ticket sales on Nov. 30. Please bring a $6 check for the dues separate from the check for the party ticket.

Oak Run TravelSeveral years ago I reluctantly went to the Paul Anka show. My reluctance was due to the fact that I thought he was too old and had lost his singing voice. Was I ever mistaken! His show was tremendous. The same thing is now true of Tony Orlando and his Christmas show. Tony is still very energetic and has an excellent voice. There are still a few seats available for the Tuesday, Dec. 13, show which starts at 1 p.m. Start your Christmas Garden Club to celebrate its silver anniversary OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE25 0009ENS 4800 SW 20th St Ocala, FL 34474 352-237-5611 www.bereanbaptist.net Berean Baptist Church Independent Fundamental Dr. Mike Patton Pastor Sunday Bible Study 9:45am Sunday Worship 10:45am & 6:00pm Wednesday Bible Study 7:00pm Assistive Listening System Nursery provided for all services Our Redeemer Lutheran Church LC-MS 5200 S.W State Road 200 1 3 / 4 Miles W e st of I-75 W o rship Service 8:00 & 1 1:00 AM Bible Class & Sunday School 9:30 AM Pastor Joe Adams 237-2233 Sharing the Joy of Jesus Christ! 0009HUU College Road Baptist Chur ch 5010 SW College Road, Ocala, FL (352) 237-5741 Rev John Downing, Pastor Rev Jef f Rountree, Minister of W o rship Rev Rob Loy Jr ., Student Minister Jason Kaminski, Children s Minister T rina Loy Preschool Director Holding Forth the Word of Life...JESUS Sunday Worship Services 8:00, 9:30 & 11:00 am 9:30 & 11:00 Sunday School 0009HTA W e dnesday 6:30 PM Children/Student Ministries 6:30 PM Mid-Week Bible Study www.collegeroad.org F EED your soul, S AVOR the richness of J EWISH tradition, Q UENCH your thirst for knowledge & wisdom, T ASTE the flavors of Jewish culture, B E W ELCOMED A S A F AMILY Worship Education Social Action Cemetery Social Choir Sisterhood 0009JFO Imagine a place where you can TEMPLE BETH SHALOM is all this and more Erev Shabbat Services Fridays, 8 pm 1109 NE 8th Ave., Ocala, FL www.jewishocala.org Fostering Jewish life in Marion County 854-6446 T emple Beth Shalom of Ocala Reservations for FREE bus 873-3995 Thomas Markham, Pastor Phone: 352-237-6950 EVER YONE WELCOME CHRISTIAN LIFE ASSEMBLY SER VICES 9644 SW HWY 484, Ocala (Near St. Rd. 200) Sunday School 9:45 a.m. Sun.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com So quick to judgeBecause of the viciousness in politics, I understand how the media and others will take an accusation of sexual harassment, even though it comes out years later, and try to destroy the accused. I guess I am in the minority but shouldnt we hear the facts, exactly what was said or done, what proof the accuser has, and what were the motives of all involved before we rush to judgment? If Herman Cain actually did something that is despicable, why did it take years for it to come out and why now? One writer said in a letter printed else where and I quote: Any man who uses power, position or money to achieve sex represents the epitome of impotence and is certainly unworthy of public office. This was said in reference to Cain even though there is no evidence or even a claim that he achieved sex as the writer put it. I do wonder if he feels the same about Bill Clinton, who did have sex with an intern, and in the oval office! If not, his prejudice and politics are showing. What surprises me even more is the Joe Paterno immediate firing. We should know more about this by the time this appears in the paper, but why did so many agree with this firing without knowing all the facts? Exactly what was he told about the incident? At this time no one knows for sure. There is no way I believe that Paterno would not have intervened if he had knowledge of a sexual act being performed on a minor. This man is one of the most respected men in America and he is thrown to the wolves based on his actions. Isnt it possible that based on what he was told, he thought telling his Athletic Director would be sufficient? The coach that told him about the incident has now said he saw the act and did nothing to stop it, he just walked away. What kind of man would not have intervened on behalf of that boy? To make matters worse, that coach is not being fired, maybe you understand it better than I do. Regarding the above, we will soon have all the facts and if they are as I suspect they are, a lot of people will be sorry they jumped on the guilty bandwagon so quickly. One is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. If I was convicted every time I innocently hugged a lady, I would be sentenced to life! Wayne Rackley OcalaCrochet Club thanksWriting this letter has become an annual event for me but a very pleasant and grateful event. Devereux Kids has a program that serves the residents in an area of Ocala dealing with huge unemployment and poverty levels much higher than surrounding areas even in our county. For the past three years the wonderful women who participate in the Cherrywood Estates Crochet Club have made and donated absolutely beautiful baby sweaters, caps, mittens and blankets to help keep infants and babies warm. During our first cold spell last week one blanket after another went out the door to very appreciative young mothers. I was particularly touched this year when one of the baby caps was shown to an adult cancer patient. A request was received from patients at the hospital receiving chemotherapy as to whether we could donate crochet caps to keep their heads warm after they lost their hair due to their treatment. The group from Cherrywood immediately went to task and within two weeks we were able to take almost 50 cheerful, brightly colored hand made crochet caps to the hospital. From the babies to young to speak, the young mothers and the cancer patients at the hospital, this special thank you goes to the wonderful ladies in the Cherrywood Crochet Club. You touch many lives and we are very grateful. Scott Hackmyer Devereux Kids Community Facilitator LETTERS TO THE EDITOR RELIGION Countryside PresbyterianCountryside Presbyterian Church celebrates Christ the King Sunday on Nov. 20 at its 10:30 a.m. worship service. This final Sunday in the church year is a celebration of the coming reign of Christ the King. The church is at 7768 S.W. State Road 200, Ocala.

The Chrismon tree is highly symbolic conveying the life of Christ and the meaning of Christmas through decorations of traditional and modified ancient Christian symbols called Chrismons. The tree is evergreen representing eternal life and the Chrismons are white and gold. White suggests the innocence, purity and perfection of Christ. Gold symbolizes the glory and majesty of the Son of God. All are welcome. For further information, please call the church office at 352-237-4633.

Fall. Its my favorite time of the year. It brings out the Yankee in me. It has me decorating my home with pumpkins, leaves, mums and all manner of harvest motifs. It has me baking pumpkin bread, cooking up cranberry sauce and hunting up my favorite apple pie recipe. It causes me to hum We Gather Together and Over the River and Through the Woods. And yes, that cool air we get around this time in Florida is fine with me; my windows are open to the full blast of that delicious air. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I couldnt be happier. If we look at the Thanksgiving story from a historical perspective, there are many things that Jews and the Pilgrims share. This could be why I like Thanksgiving; it lets me be part of the American culture while retaining my Jewish heritage. The Pilgrims were great Bible readers. They were influenced by its messages and moral teachings. Now, this sounds very much like the Jewish take on the Torah. For Jews, the Torah is the guiding force in their lives as was the Bible for the Pilgrims. While in England, the Pilgrims were persecuted for their religious beliefs. Jews can certainly relate to this aspect for we have been the objects of persecution for centuries. It should be noted that while Jews have always worked for the rights of others, when the Pilgrims and other Christian groups came to America, they did not always give full rights to those who were not of their faith. Fortunately this changed as time went on. The Pilgrims came here seeking freedom to live and worship as they pleased. The Jews came here for the same reasons. In the shtetls of Europe they were subject to conscription by the Russian army or prejudiced against in government or in business. In the New World they could be free from the Inquisition and practice Judaism openly. Both the Pilgrims and the Jews viewed AmericaFriday, November 18, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Christs Church of Marion CountySaturday, Nov. 19: Mens Prayer Group, 9 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 20: Sunday school, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23: Thanksgiving Eve Prayer Service, 7 p.m. Christs Church of Marion County, 6768 S.W. 80th St. (off State Road 200), Ocala.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 2011 Thanksgiving message JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE12 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to let that intrepid Aries temperament take charge. Your strong leadership will help settle those still unresolved situations. Support comes from a surprising source. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your problem-solving talents shine as you move to cool down heated emotions. You also inspire trust in all parties when you act with careful consideration of their feelings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) That long-delayed commitment begins to look better to you. But theres still a crucial fact or two you need to know about it. A health problem needs to be taken care of. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont waste time trying to learn why someone you relied on is wavering in his or her support of your stand on a workplace issue. Move on with the help of more steadfast allies. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Relationships enter a brighter period, both at home and in the workplace. Prospects also look good for single Leos and Leonas, who can expect a welcome visit from Cupid. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Those mixed signals that were complicating your life are giving way now to clear, definitive guidelines. This makes it easier for you to weigh your options and make decisions. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Ask your partner for an explanation of what seems to be a sign of strain in your relationship. The sooner you understand the problem, the sooner you can both act to resolve it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A new challenge in the workplace holds an exciting promise for the future. But be aware of the fact that you havent been told about all the demands you might have to meet. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your financial picture brightens as you get into sorting out realistic goals and those that are not reachable at this time. Caution remains your fiscal watchword. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youre deep into your new project, and thats just fine. But dont neglect your family and friends. Spending time with people you care for is always a wise investment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Past feelings are suddenly reawakened. This could make you emotionally vulnerable. Be careful about decisions you might be asked to make at this time.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com as the Promised Land. Here both groups could obtain the opportunities denied them under the old reigns in Europe. Here they could start fresh and plot their own destinies. When the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts, they built their own little communities and houses of worship. So, too, did the Jews. Living as a community is a very integral part of Judaism. Rituals and prayers are done as a group and certain prayers can only be done in the presence of a minyan, a religious quorum of 10 Jews. Building communities and establishing houses of worship are important goals for any group. The white clapboard Congregational church is a ubiquitous sight throughout the center greens in New England towns. Jewish synagogues especially in the major cities where most Jews settled are testaments to the permanency these people wished to convey. Lastly, Thanksgiving expresses one of the most Jewish of sentiments, that of gratefulness. The whole concept of giving thanks is one that observant Jews do from the moment of arising in the morning. Throughout the day there are additional opportunities to say thank you to God for Gods many blessings. These are uttered over bread, food, special occasions and the like. The Pilgrims gratitude was born of a desire to survive in a hostile and harsh environment. They were grateful to be alive, those that had survived, and this gratefulness gave them courage to persevere. Whether we are Jews or Christians, another religion or none at all, we can all relate to the Pilgrims and their journey to the New World. Their story is a universal story of the right to be free and worship or not as one sees fit. It is everybodys story of being grateful for the basics of life: home, food and family. It is everybodys human need to say thank you and to take stock of the things for which there are no price tags: health, life and love. As for me, I used to remind my children that we Jews have deep roots in America. After all, I would say jokingly, their dads relatives, the Siegals, (seagulls) came over with the Mayflower. Happy Thanksgiving!Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Thanksgiving is my kind of holiday. Apart from the thanks part, the primary purpose of this celebration is eating. That is the one thing I do quite well. Thanksgiving is the beginning of a feasting frenzy that would make Richard Simmons sweat to the goodies. Any thoughts of dieting at this time of the year are merely blowing in the wind. Hopefully, not in my direction. Our Pilgrim Fathers came up with the idea of a Thanksgiving feast. The Pilgrim Mothers were too busy doing the wash and caring for the children to think of any more work. The Pilgrim Fathers were sitting around waiting for someone to invent television so they could all watch a football game when someone had an idea. Most ideas are born in the midst of great boredom. That is why so many of them are...well...stupid. Theres nothing to do, one bored Pilgrim Father said. Lets get together and have a feast. Because nothing else was happening, the other Pilgrim Fathers got excited about this idea. The Pilgrim Mothers, however, had some different thoughts about this crazy feast idea. After all, they would have to do all the work and Oprah Winfrey had not been born yet to lead them in a chorus of whining and complaining and getting in touch with their real feelings. The Pilgrim Mothers wanted a Tupperware party, but since it was not yet a two-party system, they could only do one party. The Pilgrim Fathers won this one. However, like the good Puritan wives they were, they humored their husbands and began preparations for the first Thanksgiving feast. Because this was the first Thanksgiving, it was a simple affair compared with the ones to follow. At the first one nobody said, Weve always done it this way. Because it was never done before. However, the second Thanksgiving was beset with this sort of thing. A tradition, someone wisely pointed out, is something done at least once. What the Pilgrim Mothers did not count on was company for dinner. After all, they were thousands of miles from their nearest relatives with a big pond between them. They assumed, and rightly so, that they were safe from the intrusion of company on what would be the heaviest workday for the kitchen crew. Have you ever noticed that when you are planning a feast of some kind, relatives who never bother you the rest of the year (something to be thankful for) seem to gravitate to your gravy bowl? There is nothing like unexpected company to put pizzazz in a Thanksgiving celebration. Who wants pizza for Thanksgiving when there is so much turkey? Imagine the Pilgrim Mothers surprise when the Pilgrim Fathers told them (probably on Thanksgiving morning) that they had invited guests for the feast. I can imagine some ears were stinging that first Thanksgiving Day. The Pilgrim Fathers braved through the stinging rebukes from their wives...for months. Perhaps the biggest anomaly of Thanksgiving is the mountain of leftovers the next day and for weeks to follow. No matter how much turkey is gobbled up or how many people are around that Thanksgiving table, the leftovers are enormous. There is more turkey on Friday than on Thanksgiving. I cannot prove this, but I highly suspect the turkeys we have today keep growing even after we cook them. Maybe when placed in a cold refrigerator over night, they expand. I really do not know what takes place, but something happens to that turkey when left overnight in a refrigerator. The big challenge is how to prepare leftover turkey so it does not look or taste like turkey. Thanksgiving is a marvelous time for family and friends to get together to celebrate the goodness of the Lord. Each family has its own special tradition that seems to bring it together. This year, especially, we have so much to be thankful. For some it starts with a Thanksgiving Eve service. Gathering as a congregation to express to God thanks for another year of bounty and blessing is important for Christians. Personally, I like a Thanksgiving eve service over a Thanksgiving morning service. In the evening service, you do not have to rush through the celebration to get home in time for the big feast. Giving thanks to God should be a leisurely thing, not something rushed through while thinking of something else. At Thanksgiving, we should bring a bouquet of blessing that fills the room with a sweet fragrance of praise that lingers all year long. Some of the best and most fragrant bouquets are the small ones. Remembering the big blessings is easy. The smaller blessings are much harder to keep in mind. Some of them we even take for granted. This Thanksgiving I am going to make a point to look over some blessing I have been overlooking. It is those small blessing that truly sustain us throughout the year. The Bible reminds us why we are to give thanks, not only at Thanksgiving time, but also all year long. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:5758 KJV). There is so much to thank God for; one day is not near enough. Let us thank God every day for His goodness. Even for leftover blessings.The Rev. James L.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com On Nov. 7, Marielena Stuart, a conservative Republican candidate running for a Florida seat in the United States Senate in 2012, addressed the participants at a meeting of Ocala Tea Party Solutions. Stuart arrived in the United States from Cuba as a legal immigrant after suffering a life of misery and oppression under the communist regime of Fidel Castro She began to experience the blessings of freedom thereafter as a resident and citizen of the United States. She had endured the full force of communist persecution when her father and uncle were imprisoned, starved, tortured, and executed as political prisoners in their own country. She said that living under the constant oppression and privation of the communist regime has given her a distinct advantage. Recognizing the socialist trend in America, she decided to run for the Senate and help change the moral and fiscal climate in Washington. As a conservative candidate for public office, she sees herself as one of the establishments greatest fears. Marielena and her husband George, a retired police officer, have two children, who are homeschooled. This allows the family to travel and campaign across the state of Florida. Living in the town of Santa Maria, near Naples, the family were dismayed to discover that their town is a participant in Agenda 21, a United Nations program that allegedly systematically infringes on private property rights and American sovereignty, while citizens are discouraged and restricted from engaging in the political processes and social dynamics of their town. Stuart describes this as a government within a government and Agenda 21 as a form of international communism. In his endorsement of Republican candidate for U.S. Senate visits local Tea Party Stuart, former U.S. Representative Robert K. Dornan, writes: As a columnist for Renew America, Marielena Stuart has demonstrated her expertise in foreign affairs, national defense, and strategic military matters, especially those dealing with ChinaU.S. relations. Stuarts platform is prolife, pro Second Amendment, a balanced federal budget, and energy independence. She will fight to repeal Obamacare and to simplify the tax code. She says she will work hard to eliminate activist judges, close the Federal Reserve, and quit membership in the United Nations. If elected, she pledges to dedicate herself to repairing the enormous damage done to our nation.

After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store get together. Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs! They all asked the farmer how it tasted.

It can also be a fun day with stories from Pun Alley.Good huntingLast year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. Man, you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department!Doggin itEvery Thanksgiving our family would all get together with relatives even though we could only afford one turkey. We children were all at a separate table, and would have to wait for the platters to reach us after passing by the adults. Even though I longed for some white meat, all too often the turkey would run out before the platters reached us, and I would not even get dark meat. We would have to settle for hot dogs. From that experience, I learned a very valuable lesson in life. Hope for the breast, but prepare for the wurst.DrumsticksThe government officials who talked turkey spoke gobbledygook. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls. Did you hear about the conservative turkey? It has two right wings. The bandleader saved the drumsticks from 38 turkeys because he wanted seventy-six tom bones. Using a new recipe, Johns wife put the turkey in aluminum foil. She had to roast it until it was brown. Twenty hours later, the aluminum foil was still silver. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. My wife gave me a haircut this morning. Now, shes going to make Thanksgiving Day dinner with all the trimmings. For Thanksgiving, the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. The hostess served a delicious turkey dinner that tickled all of the guests. She forgot to remove the feathers. Teacher: Why do we have a Thanksgiving holiday? Student: So we know when to start Christmas shopping. History books tell us the Pilgrims ate wild turkeys. That isnt so. The turkeys werent wild until they found out what the Pilgrims had in mind.Welcomed guestsA man in living in the corridor area called his son in California and said, I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; 45 years of misery is enough. Pop, what are you talking about? the son screamed. We cant stand the sight of each other any longer, the man said. Were sick of each other, and Im sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her. Then he hung up. Frantic, the son called his sister, who exploded on the phone. Like heck theyre getting divorced, she shouted, Ill take care of this. She called Ocala immediately, and screamed at the old man, You are not getting divorced. Dont do a single thing until I get there. Im calling my brother back, and well both be there tomorrow. Until then, dont do a thing, do you hear me? The man hung up his phone and turned to his wife.

Powell as its new Chief Executive Officer. Powell brings extensive leadership experience and expertise in leading mental health and substance abuse agencies. He holds a MS in Clinical Counseling from Wright State University, an MA in Philanthropy and Development from St. Marys University, and a BS in Communications from Ohio University. Powells experience spans seven states and numerous strategic visions for funding, governing, developing and administering the best programs for recovery, resiliency and strength based models. He comes to Ocala from Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia where he was the chief executive officer serving a 10 county region. According to Stephen Spivey, a member and former president of the non-profits board of directors, Mr. Powell, in a relatively short time there, has been able to establish a lot of key relationships with not only legislators but other health care officials. His expertise in integrated health care will be invaluable in navigating the changing climate of health care. Powell said he is honored to be selected as the next CEO of the Centers, Inc., and is confident that he will be able to provide the creative energy necessary to fulfill the Centers mission. The change in leadership of the Centers was Nov. 14 as Russell Rasco begins his retirement after 33 years of service to the Centers. The Centers, a private, non-profit behavioral health care organization, has been serving Marion and Citrus Counties for over 39 years. With four locations in Marion County and three in Citrus County, it is one of the top ten employers supporting over 560 trained professionals. Housing a fifty-seven-bed acute care facility (Children and Adult Crisis Stabilization Units and Adult Psychiatric Hospital), fiftybed adult and fifteen-bed adolescent residential substance abuse treatment facilities, the Centers is saving lives every day. 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 fifteen individuals in our community directly benefits from the Centers services every year. The main phone number is 352-291-5555, and the 24Hour Crisis Line is 352629-9595. New CEO takes over at The Centers Charles R.

Powells experience spans seven states and numerous strategic visions for funding, governing, developing and administering the best programs for recovery, resiliency and strength based models. He comes to Ocala from Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia where he was the chief executive officer serving a 10 county region. According to Stephen Spivey, a member and former president of the non-profits board of directors, Mr. Powell, in a relatively short time there, has been able to establish a lot of key relationships with not only legislators but other health care officials. His expertise in integrated health care will be invaluable in navigating the changing climate of health care. Powell said he is honored to be selected as the next CEO of the Centers, Inc., and is confident that he will be able to provide the creative energy necessary to fulfill the Centers mission.

Many celebrate by having a big turkey dinner with family members they havent seen for a while. Its a day when the turkey gets stuffed in the morning and the family in the afternoon. It can also be a fun day with stories from Pun Alley.Good huntingLast year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. Man, you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department!Doggin itEvery Thanksgiving our family would all get together with relatives even though we could only afford one turkey. We children were all at a separate table, and would have to wait for the platters to reach us after passing by the adults. Even though I longed for some white meat, all too often the turkey would run out before the platters reached us, and I would not even get dark meat. We would have to settle for hot dogs. From that experience, I learned a very valuable lesson in life. Hope for the breast, but prepare for the wurst.DrumsticksThe government officials who talked turkey spoke gobbledygook. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls. Did you hear about the conservative turkey? It has two right wings. The bandleader saved the drumsticks from 38 turkeys because he wanted seventy-six tom bones. Using a new recipe, Johns wife put the turkey in aluminum foil. She had to roast it until it was brown. Twenty hours later, the aluminum foil was still silver. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. My wife gave me a haircut this morning. Now, shes going to make Thanksgiving Day dinner with all the trimmings. For Thanksgiving, the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. The hostess served a delicious turkey dinner that tickled all of the guests. She forgot to remove the feathers. Teacher: Why do we have a Thanksgiving holiday? Student: So we know when to start Christmas shopping. History books tell us the Pilgrims ate wild turkeys. That isnt so. The turkeys werent wild until they found out what the Pilgrims had in mind.Welcomed guestsA man in living in the corridor area called his son in California and said, I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; 45 years of misery is enough. Pop, what are you talking about? the son screamed. We cant stand the sight of each other any longer, the man said. Were sick of each other, and Im sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her. Then he hung up. Frantic, the son called his sister, who exploded on the phone. Like heck theyre getting divorced, she shouted, Ill take care of this. She called Ocala immediately, and screamed at the old man, You are not getting divorced. Dont do a single thing until I get there. Im calling my brother back, and well both be there tomorrow. Until then, dont do a thing, do you hear me? The man hung up his phone and turned to his wife.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com On Nov. 7, Marielena Stuart, a conservative Republican candidate running for a Florida seat in the United States Senate in 2012, addressed the participants at a meeting of Ocala Tea Party Solutions. Stuart arrived in the United States from Cuba as a legal immigrant after suffering a life of misery and oppression under the communist regime of Fidel Castro She began to experience the blessings of freedom thereafter as a resident and citizen of the United States. She had endured the full force of communist persecution when her father and uncle were imprisoned, starved, tortured, and executed as political prisoners in their own country. She said that living under the constant oppression and privation of the communist regime has given her a distinct advantage. Recognizing the socialist trend in America, she decided to run for the Senate and help change the moral and fiscal climate in Washington. As a conservative candidate for public office, she sees herself as one of the establishments greatest fears. Marielena and her husband George, a retired police officer, have two children, who are homeschooled. This allows the family to travel and campaign across the state of Florida. Living in the town of Santa Maria, near Naples, the family were dismayed to discover that their town is a participant in Agenda 21, a United Nations program that allegedly systematically infringes on private property rights and American sovereignty, while citizens are discouraged and restricted from engaging in the political processes and social dynamics of their town. Stuart describes this as a government within a government and Agenda 21 as a form of international communism. In his endorsement of Republican candidate for U.S. Senate visits local Tea Party Stuart, former U.S. Representative Robert K. Dornan, writes: As a columnist for Renew America, Marielena Stuart has demonstrated her expertise in foreign affairs, national defense, and strategic military matters, especially those dealing with ChinaU.S. relations. Stuarts platform is prolife, pro Second Amendment, a balanced federal budget, and energy independence. She will fight to repeal Obamacare and to simplify the tax code. She says she will work hard to eliminate activist judges, close the Federal Reserve, and quit membership in the United Nations. If elected, she pledges to dedicate herself to repairing the enormous damage done to our nation.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com as the Promised Land. Here both groups could obtain the opportunities denied them under the old reigns in Europe. Here they could start fresh and plot their own destinies. When the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts, they built their own little communities and houses of worship. So, too, did the Jews. Living as a community is a very integral part of Judaism. Rituals and prayers are done as a group and certain prayers can only be done in the presence of a minyan, a religious quorum of 10 Jews. Building communities and establishing houses of worship are important goals for any group. The white clapboard Congregational church is a ubiquitous sight throughout the center greens in New England towns. Jewish synagogues especially in the major cities where most Jews settled are testaments to the permanency these people wished to convey. Lastly, Thanksgiving expresses one of the most Jewish of sentiments, that of gratefulness. The whole concept of giving thanks is one that observant Jews do from the moment of arising in the morning. Throughout the day there are additional opportunities to say thank you to God for Gods many blessings. These are uttered over bread, food, special occasions and the like. The Pilgrims gratitude was born of a desire to survive in a hostile and harsh environment. They were grateful to be alive, those that had survived, and this gratefulness gave them courage to persevere. Whether we are Jews or Christians, another religion or none at all, we can all relate to the Pilgrims and their journey to the New World. Their story is a universal story of the right to be free and worship or not as one sees fit. It is everybodys story of being grateful for the basics of life: home, food and family. It is everybodys human need to say thank you and to take stock of the things for which there are no price tags: health, life and love. As for me, I used to remind my children that we Jews have deep roots in America. After all, I would say jokingly, their dads relatives, the Siegals, (seagulls) came over with the Mayflower. Happy Thanksgiving!Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Thanksgiving is my kind of holiday. Apart from the thanks part, the primary purpose of this celebration is eating. That is the one thing I do quite well. Thanksgiving is the beginning of a feasting frenzy that would make Richard Simmons sweat to the goodies. Any thoughts of dieting at this time of the year are merely blowing in the wind. Hopefully, not in my direction. Our Pilgrim Fathers came up with the idea of a Thanksgiving feast. The Pilgrim Mothers were too busy doing the wash and caring for the children to think of any more work. The Pilgrim Fathers were sitting around waiting for someone to invent television so they could all watch a football game when someone had an idea. Most ideas are born in the midst of great boredom. That is why so many of them are...well...stupid. Theres nothing to do, one bored Pilgrim Father said. Lets get together and have a feast. Because nothing else was happening, the other Pilgrim Fathers got excited about this idea. The Pilgrim Mothers, however, had some different thoughts about this crazy feast idea. After all, they would have to do all the work and Oprah Winfrey had not been born yet to lead them in a chorus of whining and complaining and getting in touch with their real feelings. The Pilgrim Mothers wanted a Tupperware party, but since it was not yet a two-party system, they could only do one party. The Pilgrim Fathers won this one. However, like the good Puritan wives they were, they humored their husbands and began preparations for the first Thanksgiving feast. Because this was the first Thanksgiving, it was a simple affair compared with the ones to follow. At the first one nobody said, Weve always done it this way. Because it was never done before. However, the second Thanksgiving was beset with this sort of thing. A tradition, someone wisely pointed out, is something done at least once. What the Pilgrim Mothers did not count on was company for dinner. After all, they were thousands of miles from their nearest relatives with a big pond between them. They assumed, and rightly so, that they were safe from the intrusion of company on what would be the heaviest workday for the kitchen crew. Have you ever noticed that when you are planning a feast of some kind, relatives who never bother you the rest of the year (something to be thankful for) seem to gravitate to your gravy bowl? There is nothing like unexpected company to put pizzazz in a Thanksgiving celebration. Who wants pizza for Thanksgiving when there is so much turkey? Imagine the Pilgrim Mothers surprise when the Pilgrim Fathers told them (probably on Thanksgiving morning) that they had invited guests for the feast. I can imagine some ears were stinging that first Thanksgiving Day. The Pilgrim Fathers braved through the stinging rebukes from their wives...for months. Perhaps the biggest anomaly of Thanksgiving is the mountain of leftovers the next day and for weeks to follow. No matter how much turkey is gobbled up or how many people are around that Thanksgiving table, the leftovers are enormous. There is more turkey on Friday than on Thanksgiving. I cannot prove this, but I highly suspect the turkeys we have today keep growing even after we cook them. Maybe when placed in a cold refrigerator over night, they expand. I really do not know what takes place, but something happens to that turkey when left overnight in a refrigerator. The big challenge is how to prepare leftover turkey so it does not look or taste like turkey. Thanksgiving is a marvelous time for family and friends to get together to celebrate the goodness of the Lord. Each family has its own special tradition that seems to bring it together. This year, especially, we have so much to be thankful. For some it starts with a Thanksgiving Eve service. Gathering as a congregation to express to God thanks for another year of bounty and blessing is important for Christians. Personally, I like a Thanksgiving eve service over a Thanksgiving morning service. In the evening service, you do not have to rush through the celebration to get home in time for the big feast. Giving thanks to God should be a leisurely thing, not something rushed through while thinking of something else. At Thanksgiving, we should bring a bouquet of blessing that fills the room with a sweet fragrance of praise that lingers all year long. Some of the best and most fragrant bouquets are the small ones. Remembering the big blessings is easy. The smaller blessings are much harder to keep in mind. Some of them we even take for granted. This Thanksgiving I am going to make a point to look over some blessing I have been overlooking. It is those small blessing that truly sustain us throughout the year. The Bible reminds us why we are to give thanks, not only at Thanksgiving time, but also all year long. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:5758 KJV). There is so much to thank God for; one day is not near enough. Let us thank God every day for His goodness. Even for leftover blessings.The Rev. James L.

Fall. Its my favorite time of the year. It brings out the Yankee in me. It has me decorating my home with pumpkins, leaves, mums and all manner of harvest motifs. It has me baking pumpkin bread, cooking up cranberry sauce and hunting up my favorite apple pie recipe. It causes me to hum We Gather Together and Over the River and Through the Woods. And yes, that cool air we get around this time in Florida is fine with me; my windows are open to the full blast of that delicious air. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I couldnt be happier. If we look at the Thanksgiving story from a historical perspective, there are many things that Jews and the Pilgrims share. This could be why I like Thanksgiving; it lets me be part of the American culture while retaining my Jewish heritage. The Pilgrims were great Bible readers. They were influenced by its messages and moral teachings. Now, this sounds very much like the Jewish take on the Torah. For Jews, the Torah is the guiding force in their lives as was the Bible for the Pilgrims. While in England, the Pilgrims were persecuted for their religious beliefs. Jews can certainly relate to this aspect for we have been the objects of persecution for centuries. It should be noted that while Jews have always worked for the rights of others, when the Pilgrims and other Christian groups came to America, they did not always give full rights to those who were not of their faith. Fortunately this changed as time went on. The Pilgrims came here seeking freedom to live and worship as they pleased. The Jews came here for the same reasons. In the shtetls of Europe they were subject to conscription by the Russian army or prejudiced against in government or in business. In the New World they could be free from the Inquisition and practice Judaism openly.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com So quick to judgeBecause of the viciousness in politics, I understand how the media and others will take an accusation of sexual harassment, even though it comes out years later, and try to destroy the accused. I guess I am in the minority but shouldnt we hear the facts, exactly what was said or done, what proof the accuser has, and what were the motives of all involved before we rush to judgment? If Herman Cain actually did something that is despicable, why did it take years for it to come out and why now? One writer said in a letter printed else where and I quote: Any man who uses power, position or money to achieve sex represents the epitome of impotence and is certainly unworthy of public office. This was said in reference to Cain even though there is no evidence or even a claim that he achieved sex as the writer put it. I do wonder if he feels the same about Bill Clinton, who did have sex with an intern, and in the oval office! If not, his prejudice and politics are showing. What surprises me even more is the Joe Paterno immediate firing. We should know more about this by the time this appears in the paper, but why did so many agree with this firing without knowing all the facts? Exactly what was he told about the incident? At this time no one knows for sure. There is no way I believe that Paterno would not have intervened if he had knowledge of a sexual act being performed on a minor. This man is one of the most respected men in America and he is thrown to the wolves based on his actions. Isnt it possible that based on what he was told, he thought telling his Athletic Director would be sufficient? The coach that told him about the incident has now said he saw the act and did nothing to stop it, he just walked away. What kind of man would not have intervened on behalf of that boy? To make matters worse, that coach is not being fired, maybe you understand it better than I do. Regarding the above, we will soon have all the facts and if they are as I suspect they are, a lot of people will be sorry they jumped on the guilty bandwagon so quickly. One is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. If I was convicted every time I innocently hugged a lady, I would be sentenced to life! Wayne Rackley OcalaCrochet Club thanksWriting this letter has become an annual event for me but a very pleasant and grateful event. Devereux Kids has a program that serves the residents in an area of Ocala dealing with huge unemployment and poverty levels much higher than surrounding areas even in our county. For the past three years the wonderful women who participate in the Cherrywood Estates Crochet Club have made and donated absolutely beautiful baby sweaters, caps, mittens and blankets to help keep infants and babies warm. During our first cold spell last week one blanket after another went out the door to very appreciative young mothers. I was particularly touched this year when one of the baby caps was shown to an adult cancer patient. A request was received from patients at the hospital receiving chemotherapy as to whether we could donate crochet caps to keep their heads warm after they lost their hair due to their treatment. The group from Cherrywood immediately went to task and within two weeks we were able to take almost 50 cheerful, brightly colored hand made crochet caps to the hospital. From the babies to young to speak, the young mothers and the cancer patients at the hospital, this special thank you goes to the wonderful ladies in the Cherrywood Crochet Club. You touch many lives and we are very grateful.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com of legitimate government functions, such as public safety and protection of citizens against economic abuse. Former President George W. Bush suggested that consumers primary freedom and most important contribution to the nations economy is to shop and spend. Free marketers are in complete agreement. In addition to our freedom to spend, we have a periodic freedom to turn out of office those politicians who continue to blow all that free-market smoke in our ears. Free markets are as extinct as a free lunch. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 words what the majority of the country was feeling after over two years of war. All in about two minutes. For most Americans the address increased in popularity only after many, many years since he enunciated those words. It has been written that Lincoln was not entirely satisfied with his speech that day. Some were critical of the president, saying that he had not said enough, that even his invitation was merely an afterthought. The war had been going badly for the Union, but the victory four months earlier was an opportunity for redirection, and realistic optimism. Mr. Lincoln viewed it with others as evidence that the nation had turned the corner and headed for reunification of the states. The sacrifices were taking their toll on the nation with a strain on the economy and over 50,000 casualties alone at Gettysburg. Today, we are not engaged in a great civil war, but we are being tested, again and again. The question remains as it did then, can we endure, how will we endure? It is a question Lincoln examined, not only in his address at Gettysburg, but throughout his term as president. He echoed the sentiments of the people, both north and south. With our present administration and its unethical behavior, ask yourself at the core, are these people really governing as statesmen? If any government places individual goals above those of the people then they are not public servants but dictators, including either and all political parties. If the current occupant of the White House cannot effectively communicate in a few minutes with integrity, and without the drawn out egocentric didactic speech, he probably doesnt know what his subject matter is. Lincoln and the country in 1863 were more divided than today, but as a leader he asserted the union of states shall conquer the issues and dilemmas of that time. There was sincerity behind his words, a resolve and vision which would withstand any challenge. He was intelligent and humble enough to admit mistakes and change actions when needed, not years later as we observe these days. After the war ended and past his death and reconstruction, the country would be on the path to where we are today. If you arent there already, my battle cry to all is first know our history, read, investigate and question. You may find that many issues and attitudes will be defined and your perceptions illuminated by researching the past. It will begin to make sense with a little effort. Caution, do not rely on one source of information alone, check out at least three versions on the same subject to achieve a truer understanding. In our present time we, as the people, generally appear disconnected from the government that Lincoln and our Founding Fathers had represented. We continue to hold a sacred and inherent obligation to honor our veterans and all who serve in the armed forces. Those who served in every military conflict from the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War to the present engagements, must continue to receive approbation. This Saturday will mark the 148th anniversary of the speech that Mr. Lincoln offered at the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Last week we honored our nations veterans. Let us be reminded that we must continue to endure during these unsettled times, offering our last full measure of devotion, to our country, along with every member of the military. This was Lincolns message to the people, and it rings true to this day. POPINCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Useful idiotsIt is so easy to manipulate some people. The phrase useful idiots sums it up very nicely. We have these useful idiots with us in every generation, and in our generation in abundance, since the brain manipulation started decades ago. Our educated class is a class brainwashed, and propagandized by liberal professors who hijacked our educational system decades ago. All that money for phony education. I want a refund of my tax dollars used to pay for this nonsense. It cannot happen here. It already is happening. We are this close to subjugation. Open your eyes, look around you. Recently, I attended an event where I was searched every day, my belongings. The catch words are safety and security. That is just how easy it is. I no longer fly. The searchers, (fellow citizens) did their searching with relish, as do community patrols who are concerned with our safety, and security. A few days ago, I was issued an edict to keep my garage door closed at all times. It is supposed to be my garage door. Dont I have the right to decide if it is open or closed, for my convenience? Something so mundane is the bailiwick of citizen spies? We are told when, and how to use everything. Recycle, do not buy, buy only what you are told, you use too much to heat, drive too much, cook, two-minute showers, etc. Is that freedom? We must cut back, while millions are allowed to rush over our borders at will. These people are taking my water, and everything else I use. I am forced to share resources with them, like it or not. Logic should tell us something, but try to tell that to a liberal useful idiot. They want to hear none of this. Useful idiots are so devoid of common sense, and logic, and information. As a first step to rectify this situation may I humbly suggest useful idiots read: The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, just to see how bad things can get. If these useful idiots are prepared to experience this: Be my guest, but do not expect me to share the experience. I choose to decline. D.I.

Oak Run TravelSeveral years ago I reluctantly went to the Paul Anka show. My reluctance was due to the fact that I thought he was too old and had lost his singing voice. Was I ever mistaken! His show was tremendous. The same thing is now true of Tony Orlando and his Christmas show. Tony is still very energetic and has an excellent voice. There are still a few seats available for the Tuesday, Dec. 13, show which starts at 1 p.m. Start your Christmas Garden Club to celebrate its silver anniversary OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE25 0009ENS 4800 SW 20th St Ocala, FL 34474 352-237-5611 www.bereanbaptist.net Berean Baptist Church Independent Fundamental Dr. Mike Patton Pastor Sunday Bible Study 9:45am Sunday Worship 10:45am & 6:00pm Wednesday Bible Study 7:00pm Assistive Listening System Nursery provided for all services Our Redeemer Lutheran Church LC-MS 5200 S.W State Road 200 1 3 / 4 Miles W e st of I-75 W o rship Service 8:00 & 1 1:00 AM Bible Class & Sunday School 9:30 AM Pastor Joe Adams 237-2233 Sharing the Joy of Jesus Christ! 0009HUU College Road Baptist Chur ch 5010 SW College Road, Ocala, FL (352) 237-5741 Rev John Downing, Pastor Rev Jef f Rountree, Minister of W o rship Rev Rob Loy Jr ., Student Minister Jason Kaminski, Children s Minister T rina Loy Preschool Director Holding Forth the Word of Life...JESUS Sunday Worship Services 8:00, 9:30 & 11:00 am 9:30 & 11:00 Sunday School 0009HTA W e dnesday 6:30 PM Children/Student Ministries 6:30 PM Mid-Week Bible Study www.collegeroad.org F EED your soul, S AVOR the richness of J EWISH tradition, Q UENCH your thirst for knowledge & wisdom, T ASTE the flavors of Jewish culture, B E W ELCOMED A S A F AMILY Worship Education Social Action Cemetery Social Choir Sisterhood 0009JFO Imagine a place where you can TEMPLE BETH SHALOM is all this and more Erev Shabbat Services Fridays, 8 pm 1109 NE 8th Ave., Ocala, FL www.jewishocala.org Fostering Jewish life in Marion County 854-6446 T emple Beth Shalom of Ocala Reservations for FREE bus 873-3995 Thomas Markham, Pastor Phone: 352-237-6950 EVER YONE WELCOME CHRISTIAN LIFE ASSEMBLY SER VICES 9644 SW HWY 484, Ocala (Near St. Rd. 200) Sunday School 9:45 a.m. Sun.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com During our endless election season the expression free markets never wears out. Some politicians believe and preach that free market is a national value worthy of inclusion with patriotism, motherhood, apple pie and baseball. The problem is there aint no free markets. The term free market as used by todays politicians is a misnomer. Politicians use it a lot because it sounds righteous. The idea of buying and selling things free from interference or control began with a guy named Adam Smith back in the 18th century, around the time America was becoming a nation. His timing was good. Our colonists were irritated by the king of England sticking his nose into how they did business and trying to tax what they bought and sold. So they declared their independence and told the king to get lost. Free market based on supply and demand received a new boost from economist Milton Friedman in 1962 and has been a rallying cry of libertarians and conservatives ever since. Republicans cant say the words often enough, as if mumbling free market is some sort of mystical mantra. The phony part of the free market baloney is zillions of dollars of government subsidies, tax preferences, and laws that allow bad-boy businessmen to stay out of jail free, as evidenced by the corrupt manipulations which caused our current recession. In addition to volumes of controls, regulations, enticements, and all sorts of corporate welfare, government has become a major investor in the markets for non-military goods and services. Recent examples have been the Obama administrations spending millions just in time to help a green energy company go bankrupt, and offering tax subsidies to manipulate development of electric cars which will be sold to a few adventurous citizens at exorbitant prices. Hold on there! Isnt the Obama guy a Democrat? Sure, but everybody in Washington plays the free markets game even liberals. Gaining and keeping political power is the real name of the game. Re-quoting what we wrote on another occasion, free market evangelizing is power politics dressed up in a patriotic term intended to disguise government connivance in every aspect of our economy. Free market preaching by business is sanctimonious sounding cover-up of their solicitations for subsidies and tax credits, as well as manipulation www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 18, 2011 Sometimes, visiting some of the activities in Ocala makes you start thinking about some serious things. That was the case over the weekend when I went to Marion Woods to view a display connected to a Vietnam War prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton. Back in the 1960s, I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Because I was married and later, because I had a daughter, I didn't get drafted. I went as far as a pre-induction physical, and they made note of my allergies and hay fever, but I never heard anything again. I did, however, lose a couple of friends, Frank Campeau of Bergenfield, N.J.,and John Kapeluck of Cresskill, N.J. John died in combat, and Frank died on a shipboard fire just off the coast of Vietnam.There may have been more school mates that I don't know about. Like everyone else, I heard about the horrors of the war, both from a combat perspective and a prisoner of war view. So I was drawn to the display last weekend. There weren't that many artifacts, but two of them stood out. One was a salvaged door to a cell, with a small, barred window. You got an idea how poor a view these prisoners had. The other was really brutal. It was a lead item that attached to a piece of concrete, and it had curves in it where a pair of legs, small legs, would be anchored to that concrete. There were many pictures on display at this event over the Veterans Day weekend, and one of them just showed a pair of legs being shackled down by that piece of lead. It made you cringe when you looked at it. That meant that those prisoners were lying on concrete beds on their backs while being held. There were a lot of other pictures, a map showing the location of the prison, and an aerial view of the Hanoi buildings. A lot of soldiers who came back from Vietnam weren't treated very well by the average citizens of this country. It's too bad this display wasn't available in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It would have showed, much more than words, how cruel the North Vietnamese, and possibly the Red Chinese, were in their treatment of their prisoners. The display was courtesy of an unnamed man from Jacksonville who obtained the artifacts and transported them himself to the display site in southeastern Ocala. He wants his privacy, but was willing to make the display available to the public. If it ever comes back to this area, we'll make sure that we notify the public. It's something you shouldn't miss.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

Last weeks news provided a lot of soul-searching, as people searched for answers. The arrest of a former Penn State assistant football coach on a 40-count indictment involving child sex abuse shook the country and cost the jobs of iconic Joe Paterno, head football coach, three school officials, including the president, and an assistant coach who saw one of the crimes in progress and made only the minimal report, never telling law enforcement authorities. Jerry Sandusky's arrest put the spotlight on this type of crime more than it has been in recent memory. Experts say, however, that this is just a small sample of what really goes on in many places in this country. Anyone who read the news reports last week will never have an excuse for not reporting incidents to the proper officials. Everyone now knows that the only way to cut back on these incidents is to be vigilant, listen to children and, most importantly, don't put them in situations where things can happen. We hope that all across the country last week there were parents speaking of a normally taboo situtation, issuing warnings to their children about both strangers and about those who are family members or friends. Parents should make sure their children are never alone with anyone who could take advantage of them, and yes, it does happen, even if folks don't think it can. And when parents get the children back from occasions such as this, question them thoroughly (but not threateningly) about what they did during the time away from the parents. Certainly there have been teachers, coaches and others who run children's programs who have taken advantage of their positions, but these people are in the minority. It's very important that the good people in these professions and activities listen to the kids and act on any information they may be given. Please keep the children safe. We don't like publishing stories about arrests for things like this, but we don't hesitate to do so, so everyone can be aware of what can happen.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Keep the children safe Hanoi Hilton artifacts make you think Jim Flynn Columnist GUEST COLUMN Government a player in free markets game BY S.M. POPIN Special to the CitizenFor three days in July of 1863, a village situated 118 miles southwest of Philadelphia experienced the largest battle on North American soil. Gettysburg is where more than 50,000 casualties occurred from July 1st to the 3rd. On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg to participate in the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. He spoke for about two minutes, while a well known contemporary orator, Edward Everett spoke for almost two hours preceding Mr. Lincoln. Can you recite a part, or recall any of Mr. Everetts words this day? How many will recognize Mr. Everetts skill, or contributions as a legislator in service to this country? He was Americas most admired and distinguished orator. In contrast, Lincolns words are remembered, venerated and recited more often through the ages than almost any other speech to date. He captured the very mood of the time with very few words, effectively honoring not only the fallen soldiers and those who continue to serve, but as a leader he attempts to assure the people that the nation will survive this great civil war. He comprehends the challenges, and stands firm, defined and dedicated to the ultimate resolve. What Lincoln did in his unique manner was to express in Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN, PAGE9 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKAbove, a POW cell door.

A private docent tour has been arranged for us at the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg on Wednesday, Jan. 25. The museum features original artifacts, video, and photos presenting the history of the Holocaust beginning with the history of anti-semitism and life before World War II. It then follows the rise of Hitler, the Nazis and anti-Jewish legislation. The history of other victim groups, ghettos and rescue are also shown. Call Dick and Eleanor Feltenberger for this trip. Royal Oaks Lady Niners Lowest Putts was the game on Nov. 3. Vange Bell was the winner and Eleanor Cerlenko was second. There was a fourway tie for third place between Rae Stover, Joyce Madill, Maureen Casner and Charlotte Green. Rae Stover won the closest to the pin contest. On Nov. 10, prior to teeing off on the first hole, each person chose 3 holes they did not want to be counted in their game score. Since we played the back nine, the 3 holes to choose seemed obvious, but wouldnt you know that several ladies played one or more of those three very well. You should have seen the faces as they came back to the club house! Rae Stover was the winner in Flight A with Vange Bell second. Joan Scholl was the winner in Flight B and Ilene Simnowitz was second. Congratulations to Phyllis Oldfield for her birdie on #11! All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room.

Our thanks go to the tourney chairman John Terry, his able assistant Dick Rizzo, and to our professional Lori Wilkes who assisted in all the preparations and the scoring. The meal of meat loaf, beans, and mashed potatoes prepared by the Royal Oaks Dining was outstanding as always. In recognition of the fact that we were playing on Veterans Day we had a short session prior to the meal and awards. Former Marine Bob Gildea, who served in both World War II and Korea, gave a history of the Pledge of Allegiance and of Veterans Day. All present recited the pledge. Thanks Bob.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenAt Joy Lutheran Church every child is a winner! On Saturday, Nov. 12, the Flag Football players and cheerleaders were awarded their Certificates of Achievement in a ceremony conducted by the Rev. Edward Holloway, Jr., senior pastor. There were no scoreboards or competition in this program but just an opportunity to learn a skill, good sportsmanship and meet new friends. Pastor Ed asked the children, Who was the most valuable player? and all the kids raised their hands. There were more than 100 children and parents present for this event. Each child was individually called forward to receive their certificate, a DVD of the Big Story, and a new sports bag. The coaches and all the helpers who made the flag football season a success were thanked for their participation. Flag football awards presented at Joy Lutheran PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENUpward Flag Football season ends with a picnic following the award ceremony for all the participants at Joy Lutheran Church. Pastor Ed closed the ceremony with a song that he played on the banjo and had the children sing called This Little Light of Mine, which encourages them all to recognize their inner talents and strengths. He reminded all in attendance that Upward Sports is a national nondenominational program that encourages parents to raise up their children the best they can. He invited them to come back for the spring soccer program in which registration will start in January. Joy Lutheran Church is on Southwest State Road 200 at 83rd Place, Ocala.

Some people, however, only give this preventative in the warmer months, and some not at all. If youre taking chances with your dog like this, please be aware that the only approved medicine to treat this disease is currently unavailable across the country due to manufacturing issues. Veterinarians and shelters are making do with the supply they have, but once they run out, they will not be able to optimally treat your pet. This means that heartworm positive dogs in certain shelters may be put down instead of treated. In other types of shelters, these dogs may not be taken in. For veterinarians, it means that alternative care will be provided with the outcome uncertain. So here is a case where the proverbial ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Keep your dog on heartworm preventative all year round so this isnt an issue for you and your loving companion.

PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 Doggy ExpoWith Thanksgiving just around the corner, Herbert W. Silverman, MBA from New York Life Insurance Company held our first Doggy Expo at Petco last Saturday. With a perfect day for going outside, both people and dogs were delighted with a cornucopia of all the pet ideas including free advice from the Paddock Park Animal Center, adoptions from the Marion County Animal Services, tips from Petco about grooming and training and a doggy picture from New York Life Insurance Company. With volunteers from West Port High School National Honor Society and live remotes from Thunder 102.9 FM, everyone agreed it was terrific. What to do with rollover funds BY HERB SILVERMAN Special to the CitizenAt some point, many people with retirement or employer-sponsored investment accounts will find themselves faced with the decision of what to do with rollover funds. This can happen when you change jobs and cash out a 401(k), or when you retire. In either case, it is important to think through your options. Ideally, its best to choose a strategy that meets your retirement needs, minimizes the impact of taxes and avoids penalties. Please note this is a general overview, and tax laws can be tricky, so be sure to talk to an accountant and/or tax attorney before making any financial decision.Roll It OverOne possible option is to directly roll your entire distribution into a new Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or an employer-sponsored 401(k). Either one would allow you to continue to defer taxes and allow you to continue building your retirement savings for the future.Leave It Where It IsYou may want to keep funds in your employers plan until you reach the plans retirement age, if that is an option. This may be ideal if you want to take advantage of certain investment options or managed money services available in your existing plan. Your funds will remain tax-deferred and can later be moved to a new employers qualified plan or an IRA.Take the Taxable DistributionDepending on your situation, you may choose to withdraw the funds from your 401(k). Although you will have immediate access to your savings, there are a few things to consider when taking a lump-sum distribution. First, your money will no longer have the potential to grow tax-deferred and it will be subject to ordinary state and federal income taxes. Additionally, if you are under age 59, a 10 percent IRS penalty may apply. Please note: Rollovers must be completed no later than the 60th day after the day you receive the distribution.This educational thirdparty article is being provided as a courtesy by Herbert W.

Some people have told us that they would love to have an animal as part of their lives, but they are not ready to commit full time to being a dog or cat parent. An alternative to adopting a pet that you will devote a lifetime of care for is to temporarily foster a needy little bundle of joy. At this time, the Animal Center desperately needs your help to foster their youngest kittens until they reach 2 lbs. When the kittens are very small, they need to be cared for in a separate room from the main cat adoption area. The best way for the kittens to thrive and reach that critical 2 lb. mark is to be raised in a home by a loving caregiver. Once the kitten reaches the ideal weight, you can return him to the Center where he will be placed for adoption with the other cats. At this time of year when many of us are looking for ways to do good and reach out to those in need in the community, this is a way for animal lovers to give back. So please if you have the time and desire to help, give the Animal Center a call at 352671-8700 and ask about the kitty foster program. Or you can go online to www.marioncountyfl.org/a nimal.htm and fill out a foster application. In addition to the kitty program, you can also foster a cat. Did you know that the Animal Center takes in upwards of 6,000 cats a year? Thats a formidable job for any facility and now you can help them give these cats and kittens the best care possible. Before we get to the dogs of the month, we want to let you know that the Animal Center is currently filled to the brim with wonderful dogs waiting to be adopted. So if youve been thinking about adopting, nows the time to go. Although we usually show you small and medium sized dogs each month, there are many large purebred and mixed breed dogs available, especially Labradors, hounds, and their mixes. If youre a large dog lover, or live on a farm, or have a moderate sized yard, or even access to a dog park please dont overlook the larger breeds as they are often the last ones to get adopted. Our first dog is Ray, the 6 year old beagle pictured here. Youll notice hes a little pudgy, so he needs you to help him whittle down to his once svelte figure. This very happy boy loves people and is a laid back sort of fellow whose idea of heaven is to sit and relax. He leaves all that toy playing to the energetic Jack Russells and such. Just think how much of a challenge it would be to find a toy or a game he likes, to get you both off the couch. You can only sit around so long, you know, so if its your mission to get some activity back into your life why not get active with Ray. Hell love you for it oh, you know hell love you anyway but itll do both your hearts good. Our next guy is Lenny, the 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. Lenny was found as a stray and brought to the Center. If youre the brainy type who likes their dogs smart, youve met your match in Lenny. Hes an intelligent soul whose favorite commands are sit, down, and paw. Were sure you can add to his bag of tricks. He also walks quite well on a leash, so hell be a pleasure to go about town with. When your neighbors get pulled down the street by their canine pals, you can chuckle to yourself knowing that Lenny is such a gentleman. Rays ID number is A059671 and Lennys is A060377. Please give Animal Services their ID numFoster parents needed for several young kittens ber when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours.Keep Your Dog on Heartworm Preventative All Year Round As most of you know, heartworm is a parasitic illness that can be fatal to your dog if left untreated.

The shoe boxes are then processed and prepared to be hand-delivered to children worldwide using whatever means necessary sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, helicopters, boats, elephants and dog sleds. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected 86 million shoe box gifts and hand-delivered them to impoverished children in more than 130 countries. This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 8.5 million gift-filled shoe boxes. In Ocala, were aiming to contribute 15,000 shoe box gifts, said Marlene Reuscher, volunteer area coordinator for Ocala. Its a big goal, but I believe we can reach it. Ocala kids realize that as tough as things are here in the United States, there are children around the world who have so much less. This small sacrifice can have lifelong impact on a needy child. Anyone can participate in Operation Christmas Child right now. National Collection Week is now until Monday. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, or to find the nearest drop-off site, call 352-629-6079 or visit www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology that allows donors to follow their shoe box to find out the destination country where it will be handdelivered to a child in need. Operation Christmas Child is a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritans Purse, headed by Franklin Graham. While Samaritans Purse works to meet critical physical needs, such as clean water, health care and food, Operation Christmas Child addresses a need for which children are just as desperatethe need to have hope and feel loved.

On Nov. 15, Brian John Kielty, 42, of Southwest 73rd Street, was stopped for failing to stay in a single line along the highway in the 5000 block. According to the report, Kielty said he had five or six beers at a local bar. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail and refused to provide a sample of his breath. A computer check showed he had three prior DUI arrests. On Nov. 12, Robert Marvin Melton, 64, of Southwest 104th Lane, was accused of DUI. A deputy reported he saw Meltons vehicle leave the parking lot at the convenience store at S.R. 200 and 103rd Street Road at about 9:50 p.m. and travel west on 200 in the eastbound lanes.

S ome people have told us that they would love to have an animal as part of their lives, but they are not ready to commit full time to being a dog or cat parent. An alternative to adopting a pet that you will devote a lifetime of care for is to temporarily foster a needy little bundle of joy. At this time, the Animal Center desperately needs your help to foster their youngest kittens until they reach 2 lbs. When the kittens are very small, they need to be cared for in a separate room from the main cat adoption area. The best way for the kittens to thrive and reach that critical 2 lb. mark is to be raised in a home by a loving caregiver. Once the kitten reaches the ideal weight, you can return him to the Center where he will be placed for adoption with the other cats. At this time of year when many of us are looking for ways to do good and reach out to those in need in the community, this is a way for animal lovers to give back. So please if you have the time and desire to help, give the Animal Center a call at 352671-8700 and ask about the kitty foster program. Or you can go online to www.marioncountyfl.org/a nimal.htm and fill out a foster application. In addition to the kitty program, you can also foster a cat. Did you know that the Animal Center takes in upwards of 6,000 cats a year? Thats a formidable job for any facility and now you can help them give these cats and kittens the best care possible. Before we get to the dogs of the month, we want to let you know that the Animal Center is currently filled to the brim with wonderful dogs waiting to be adopted. So if youve been thinking about adopting, nows the time to go. Although we usually show you small and medium sized dogs each month, there are many large purebred and mixed breed dogs available, especially Labradors, hounds, and their mixes. If youre a large dog lover, or live on a farm, or have a moderate sized yard, or even access to a dog park please dont overlook the larger breeds as they are often the last ones to get adopted. Our first dog is Ray, the 6 year old beagle pictured here. Youll notice hes a little pudgy, so he needs you to help him whittle down to his once svelte figure. This very happy boy loves people and is a laid back sort of fellow whose idea of heaven is to sit and relax. He leaves all that toy playing to the energetic Jack Russells and such. Just think how much of a challenge it would be to find a toy or a game he likes, to get you both off the couch. You can only sit around so long, you know, so if its your mission to get some activity back into your life why not get active with Ray. Hell love you for it oh, you know hell love you anyway but itll do both your hearts good. Our next guy is Lenny, the 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. Lenny was found as a stray and brought to the Center. If youre the brainy type who likes their dogs smart, youve met your match in Lenny. Hes an intelligent soul whose favorite commands are sit, down, and paw. Were sure you can add to his bag of tricks. He also walks quite well on a leash, so hell be a pleasure to go about town with. When your neighbors get pulled down the street by their canine pals, you can chuckle to yourself knowing that Lenny is such a gentleman. Rays ID number is A059671 and Lennys is A060377. Please give Animal Services their ID numFoster parents needed for several young kittens ber when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours.Keep Your Dog on Heartworm Preventative All Year Round As most of you know, heartworm is a parasitic illness that can be fatal to your dog if left untreated.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen At Joy Lutheran Church every child is a winner! On Saturday, Nov. 12, the Flag Football players and cheerleaders were awarded their Certificates of Achievement in a ceremony conducted by the Rev. Edward Holloway, Jr., senior pastor. There were no scoreboards or competition in this program but just an opportunity to learn a skill, good sportsmanship and meet new friends. Pastor Ed asked the children, Who was the most valuable player? and all the kids raised their hands. There were more than 100 children and parents present for this event. Each child was individually called forward to receive their certificate, a DVD of the Big Story, and a new sports bag. The coaches and all the helpers who made the flag football season a success were thanked for their participation. Flag football awards presented at Joy Lutheran PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENUpward Flag Football season ends with a picnic following the award ceremony for all the participants at Joy Lutheran Church. Pastor Ed closed the ceremony with a song that he played on the banjo and had the children sing called This Little Light of Mine, which encourages them all to recognize their inner talents and strengths. He reminded all in attendance that Upward Sports is a national nondenominational program that encourages parents to raise up their children the best they can. He invited them to come back for the spring soccer program in which registration will start in January. Joy Lutheran Church is on Southwest State Road 200 at 83rd Place, Ocala.

Some people, however, only give this preventative in the warmer months, and some not at all. If youre taking chances with your dog like this, please be aware that the only approved medicine to treat this disease is currently unavailable across the country due to manufacturing issues. Veterinarians and shelters are making do with the supply they have, but once they run out, they will not be able to optimally treat your pet. This means that heartworm positive dogs in certain shelters may be put down instead of treated. In other types of shelters, these dogs may not be taken in. For veterinarians, it means that alternative care will be provided with the outcome uncertain. So here is a case where the proverbial ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Keep your dog on heartworm preventative all year round so this isnt an issue for you and your loving companion.

Silverman, MBA from New York Life Insurance Company held our first Doggy Expo at Petco last Saturday. With a perfect day for going outside, both people and dogs were delighted with a cornucopia of all the pet ideas including free advice from the Paddock Park Animal Center, adoptions from the Marion County Animal Services, tips from Petco about grooming and training and a doggy picture from New York Life Insurance Company. With volunteers from West Port High School National Honor Society and live remotes from Thunder 102.9 FM, everyone agreed it was terrific. What to do with rollover funds BY HERB SILVERMAN Special to the Citizen At some point, many people with retirement or employer-sponsored investment accounts will find themselves faced with the decision of what to do with rollover funds. This can happen when you change jobs and cash out a 401(k), or when you retire. In either case, it is important to think through your options. Ideally, its best to choose a strategy that meets your retirement needs, minimizes the impact of taxes and avoids penalties. Please note this is a general overview, and tax laws can be tricky, so be sure to talk to an accountant and/or tax attorney before making any financial decision. Roll It Over One possible option is to directly roll your entire distribution into a new Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or an employer-sponsored 401(k). Either one would allow you to continue to defer taxes and allow you to continue building your retirement savings for the future.Leave It Where It IsYou may want to keep funds in your employers plan until you reach the plans retirement age, if that is an option. This may be ideal if you want to take advantage of certain investment options or managed money services available in your existing plan. Your funds will remain tax-deferred and can later be moved to a new employers qualified plan or an IRA.Take the Taxable DistributionDepending on your situation, you may choose to withdraw the funds from your 401(k). Although you will have immediate access to your savings, there are a few things to consider when taking a lump-sum distribution. First, your money will no longer have the potential to grow tax-deferred and it will be subject to ordinary state and federal income taxes. Additionally, if you are under age 59, a 10 percent IRS penalty may apply. Please note: Rollovers must be completed no later than the 60th day after the day you receive the distribution.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com D uring our endless election season the expression free markets never wears out. Some politicians believe and preach that free market is a national value worthy of inclusion with patriotism, motherhood, apple pie and baseball. The problem is there aint no free markets. The term free market as used by todays politicians is a misnomer. Politicians use it a lot because it sounds righteous. The idea of buying and selling things free from interference or control began with a guy named Adam Smith back in the 18th century, around the time America was becoming a nation. His timing was good. Our colonists were irritated by the king of England sticking his nose into how they did business and trying to tax what they bought and sold. So they declared their independence and told the king to get lost. Free market based on supply and demand received a new boost from economist Milton Friedman in 1962 and has been a rallying cry of libertarians and conservatives ever since. Republicans cant say the words often enough, as if mumbling free market is some sort of mystical mantra. The phony part of the free market baloney is zillions of dollars of government subsidies, tax preferences, and laws that allow bad-boy businessmen to stay out of jail free, as evidenced by the corrupt manipulations which caused our current recession. In addition to volumes of controls, regulations, enticements, and all sorts of corporate welfare, government has become a major investor in the markets for non-military goods and services. Recent examples have been the Obama administrations spending millions just in time to help a green energy company go bankrupt, and offering tax subsidies to manipulate development of electric cars which will be sold to a few adventurous citizens at exorbitant prices. Hold on there! Isnt the Obama guy a Democrat? Sure, but everybody in Washington plays the free markets game even liberals. Gaining and keeping political power is the real name of the game. Re-quoting what we wrote on another occasion, free market evangelizing is power politics dressed up in a patriotic term intended to disguise government connivance in every aspect of our economy. Free market preaching by business is sanctimonious sounding cover-up of their solicitations for subsidies and tax credits, as well as manipulation www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 S ometimes, visiting some of the activities in Ocala makes you start thinking about some serious things. That was the case over the weekend when I went to Marion Woods to view a display connected to a Vietnam War prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton. Back in the 1960s, I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Because I was married and later, because I had a daughter, I didn't get drafted. I went as far as a pre-induction physical, and they made note of my allergies and hay fever, but I never heard anything again. I did, however, lose a couple of friends, Frank Campeau of Bergenfield, N.J.,and John Kapeluck of Cresskill, N.J. John died in combat, and Frank died on a shipboard fire just off the coast of Vietnam.There may have been more school mates that I don't know about. Like everyone else, I heard about the horrors of the war, both from a combat perspective and a prisoner of war view. So I was drawn to the display last weekend. There weren't that many artifacts, but two of them stood out. One was a salvaged door to a cell, with a small, barred window. You got an idea how poor a view these prisoners had. The other was really brutal. It was a lead item that attached to a piece of concrete, and it had curves in it where a pair of legs, small legs, would be anchored to that concrete. There were many pictures on display at this event over the Veterans Day weekend, and one of them just showed a pair of legs being shackled down by that piece of lead. It made you cringe when you looked at it. That meant that those prisoners were lying on concrete beds on their backs while being held. There were a lot of other pictures, a map showing the location of the prison, and an aerial view of the Hanoi buildings. A lot of soldiers who came back from Vietnam weren't treated very well by the average citizens of this country. It's too bad this display wasn't available in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It would have showed, much more than words, how cruel the North Vietnamese, and possibly the Red Chinese, were in their treatment of their prisoners. The display was courtesy of an unnamed man from Jacksonville who obtained the artifacts and transported them himself to the display site in southeastern Ocala. He wants his privacy, but was willing to make the display available to the public. If it ever comes back to this area, we'll make sure that we notify the public. It's something you shouldn't miss.

L ast weeks news provided a lot of soul-searching, as people searched for answers. The arrest of a former Penn State assistant football coach on a 40-count indictment involving child sex abuse shook the country and cost the jobs of iconic Joe Paterno, head football coach, three school officials, including the president, and an assistant coach who saw one of the crimes in progress and made only the minimal report, never telling law enforcement authorities. Jerry Sandusky's arrest put the spotlight on this type of crime more than it has been in recent memory. Experts say, however, that this is just a small sample of what really goes on in many places in this country. Anyone who read the news reports last week will never have an excuse for not reporting incidents to the proper officials. Everyone now knows that the only way to cut back on these incidents is to be vigilant, listen to children and, most importantly, don't put them in situations where things can happen. We hope that all across the country last week there were parents speaking of a normally taboo situtation, issuing warnings to their children about both strangers and about those who are family members or friends. Parents should make sure their children are never alone with anyone who could take advantage of them, and yes, it does happen, even if folks don't think it can. And when parents get the children back from occasions such as this, question them thoroughly (but not threateningly) about what they did during the time away from the parents. Certainly there have been teachers, coaches and others who run children's programs who have taken advantage of their positions, but these people are in the minority. It's very important that the good people in these professions and activities listen to the kids and act on any information they may be given. Please keep the children safe. We don't like publishing stories about arrests for things like this, but we don't hesitate to do so, so everyone can be aware of what can happen.

POPIN Special to the Citizen F or three days in July of 1863, a village situated 118 miles southwest of Philadelphia experienced the largest battle on North American soil. Gettysburg is where more than 50,000 casualties occurred from July 1st to the 3rd. On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg to participate in the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. He spoke for about two minutes, while a well known contemporary orator, Edward Everett spoke for almost two hours preceding Mr. Lincoln. Can you recite a part, or recall any of Mr. Everetts words this day? How many will recognize Mr. Everetts skill, or contributions as a legislator in service to this country? He was Americas most admired and distinguished orator. In contrast, Lincolns words are remembered, venerated and recited more often through the ages than almost any other speech to date. He captured the very mood of the time with very few words, effectively honoring not only the fallen soldiers and those who continue to serve, but as a leader he attempts to assure the people that the nation will survive this great civil war. He comprehends the challenges, and stands firm, defined and dedicated to the ultimate resolve.

There was a fourway tie for third place between Rae Stover, Joyce Madill, Maureen Casner and Charlotte Green. Rae Stover won the closest to the pin contest. On Nov. 10, prior to teeing off on the first hole, each person chose 3 holes they did not want to be counted in their game score. Since we played the back nine, the 3 holes to choose seemed obvious, but wouldnt you know that several ladies played one or more of those three very well. You should have seen the faces as they came back to the club house! Rae Stover was the winner in Flight A with Vange Bell second. Joan Scholl was the winner in Flight B and Ilene Simnowitz was second. Congratulations to Phyllis Oldfield for her birdie on #11!

Our thanks go to the tourney chairman John Terry, his able assistant Dick Rizzo, and to our professional Lori Wilkes who assisted in all the preparations and the scoring. The meal of meat loaf, beans, and mashed potatoes prepared by the Royal Oaks Dining was outstanding as always. In recognition of the fact that we were playing on Veterans Day we had a short session prior to the meal and awards. Former Marine Bob Gildea, who served in both World War II and Korea, gave a history of the Pledge of Allegiance and of Veterans Day. All present recited the pledge. Thanks Bob.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com of legitimate government functions, such as public safety and protection of citizens against economic abuse. Former President George W. Bush suggested that consumers primary freedom and most important contribution to the nations economy is to shop and spend. Free marketers are in complete agreement. In addition to our freedom to spend, we have a periodic freedom to turn out of office those politicians who continue to blow all that free-market smoke in our ears. Free markets are as extinct as a free lunch. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 words what the majority of the country was feeling after over two years of war. All in about two minutes. For most Americans the address increased in popularity only after many, many years since he enunciated those words. It has been written that Lincoln was not entirely satisfied with his speech that day. Some were critical of the president, saying that he had not said enough, that even his invitation was merely an afterthought. The war had been going badly for the Union, but the victory four months earlier was an opportunity for redirection, and realistic optimism. Mr. Lincoln viewed it with others as evidence that the nation had turned the corner and headed for reunification of the states. The sacrifices were taking their toll on the nation with a strain on the economy and over 50,000 casualties alone at Gettysburg. Today, we are not engaged in a great civil war, but we are being tested, again and again. The question remains as it did then, can we endure, how will we endure? It is a question Lincoln examined, not only in his address at Gettysburg, but throughout his term as president. He echoed the sentiments of the people, both north and south. With our present administration and its unethical behavior, ask yourself at the core, are these people really governing as statesmen? If any government places individual goals above those of the people then they are not public servants but dictators, including either and all political parties. If the current occupant of the White House cannot effectively communicate in a few minutes with integrity, and without the drawn out egocentric didactic speech, he probably doesnt know what his subject matter is. Lincoln and the country in 1863 were more divided than today, but as a leader he asserted the union of states shall conquer the issues and dilemmas of that time. There was sincerity behind his words, a resolve and vision which would withstand any challenge. He was intelligent and humble enough to admit mistakes and change actions when needed, not years later as we observe these days. After the war ended and past his death and reconstruction, the country would be on the path to where we are today. If you arent there already, my battle cry to all is first know our history, read, investigate and question. You may find that many issues and attitudes will be defined and your perceptions illuminated by researching the past. It will begin to make sense with a little effort. Caution, do not rely on one source of information alone, check out at least three versions on the same subject to achieve a truer understanding. In our present time we, as the people, generally appear disconnected from the government that Lincoln and our Founding Fathers had represented. We continue to hold a sacred and inherent obligation to honor our veterans and all who serve in the armed forces. Those who served in every military conflict from the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War to the present engagements, must continue to receive approbation. This Saturday will mark the 148th anniversary of the speech that Mr. Lincoln offered at the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Last week we honored our nations veterans. Let us be reminded that we must continue to endure during these unsettled times, offering our last full measure of devotion, to our country, along with every member of the military. This was Lincolns message to the people, and it rings true to this day. POPIN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Useful idiots It is so easy to manipulate some people. The phrase useful idiots sums it up very nicely. We have these useful idiots with us in every generation, and in our generation in abundance, since the brain manipulation started decades ago. Our educated class is a class brainwashed, and propagandized by liberal professors who hijacked our educational system decades ago. All that money for phony education. I want a refund of my tax dollars used to pay for this nonsense. It cannot happen here. It already is happening. We are this close to subjugation. Open your eyes, look around you. Recently, I attended an event where I was searched every day, my belongings. The catch words are safety and security. That is just how easy it is. I no longer fly. The searchers, (fellow citizens) did their searching with relish, as do community patrols who are concerned with our safety, and security. A few days ago, I was issued an edict to keep my garage door closed at all times. It is supposed to be my garage door. Dont I have the right to decide if it is open or closed, for my convenience? Something so mundane is the bailiwick of citizen spies? We are told when, and how to use everything. Recycle, do not buy, buy only what you are told, you use too much to heat, drive too much, cook, two-minute showers, etc. Is that freedom? We must cut back, while millions are allowed to rush over our borders at will. These people are taking my water, and everything else I use. I am forced to share resources with them, like it or not. Logic should tell us something, but try to tell that to a liberal useful idiot. They want to hear none of this. Useful idiots are so devoid of common sense, and logic, and information. As a first step to rectify this situation may I humbly suggest useful idiots read: The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, just to see how bad things can get. If these useful idiots are prepared to experience this: Be my guest, but do not expect me to share the experience. I choose to decline. D.I.

Oak Run TravelSeveral years ago I reluctantly went to the Paul Anka show. My reluctance was due to the fact that I thought he was too old and had lost his singing voice. Was I ever mistaken! His show was tremendous. The same thing is now true of Tony Orlando and his Christmas show. Tony is still very energetic and has an excellent voice.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com So quick to judgeBecause of the viciousness in politics, I understand how the media and others will take an accusation of sexual harassment, even though it comes out years later, and try to destroy the accused. I guess I am in the minority but shouldnt we hear the facts, exactly what was said or done, what proof the accuser has, and what were the motives of all involved before we rush to judgment? If Herman Cain actually did something that is despicable, why did it take years for it to come out and why now? One writer said in a letter printed else where and I quote: Any man who uses power, position or money to achieve sex represents the epitome of impotence and is certainly unworthy of public office. This was said in reference to Cain even though there is no evidence or even a claim that he achieved sex as the writer put it. I do wonder if he feels the same about Bill Clinton, who did have sex with an intern, and in the oval office! If not, his prejudice and politics are showing. What surprises me even more is the Joe Paterno immediate firing. We should know more about this by the time this appears in the paper, but why did so many agree with this firing without knowing all the facts? Exactly what was he told about the incident? At this time no one knows for sure. There is no way I believe that Paterno would not have intervened if he had knowledge of a sexual act being performed on a minor. This man is one of the most respected men in America and he is thrown to the wolves based on his actions. Isnt it possible that based on what he was told, he thought telling his Athletic Director would be sufficient? The coach that told him about the incident has now said he saw the act and did nothing to stop it, he just walked away. What kind of man would not have intervened on behalf of that boy? To make matters worse, that coach is not being fired, maybe you understand it better than I do. Regarding the above, we will soon have all the facts and if they are as I suspect they are, a lot of people will be sorry they jumped on the guilty bandwagon so quickly. One is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. If I was convicted every time I innocently hugged a lady, I would be sentenced to life! Wayne Rackley Ocala Crochet Club thanksWriting this letter has become an annual event for me but a very pleasant and grateful event. Devereux Kids has a program that serves the residents in an area of Ocala dealing with huge unemployment and poverty levels much higher than surrounding areas even in our county. For the past three years the wonderful women who participate in the Cherrywood Estates Crochet Club have made and donated absolutely beautiful baby sweaters, caps, mittens and blankets to help keep infants and babies warm. During our first cold spell last week one blanket after another went out the door to very appreciative young mothers. I was particularly touched this year when one of the baby caps was shown to an adult cancer patient. A request was received from patients at the hospital receiving chemotherapy as to whether we could donate crochet caps to keep their heads warm after they lost their hair due to their treatment. The group from Cherrywood immediately went to task and within two weeks we were able to take almost 50 cheerful, brightly colored hand made crochet caps to the hospital. From the babies to young to speak, the young mothers and the cancer patients at the hospital, this special thank you goes to the wonderful ladies in the Cherrywood Crochet Club. You touch many lives and we are very grateful. Scott Hackmyer Devereux Kids Community Facilitator LETTERS TO THE EDITOR RELIGION Countryside PresbyterianCountryside Presbyterian Church celebrates Christ the King Sunday on Nov. 20 at its 10:30 a.m. worship service.

F all. Its my favorite time of the year. It brings out the Yankee in me. It has me decorating my home with pumpkins, leaves, mums and all manner of harvest motifs. It has me baking pumpkin bread, cooking up cranberry sauce and hunting up my favorite apple pie recipe. It causes me to hum We Gather Together and Over the River and Through the Woods. And yes, that cool air we get around this time in Florida is fine with me; my windows are open to the full blast of that delicious air. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I couldnt be happier. If we look at the Thanksgiving story from a historical perspective, there are many things that Jews and the Pilgrims share. This could be why I like Thanksgiving; it lets me be part of the American culture while retaining my Jewish heritage. The Pilgrims were great Bible readers. They were influenced by its messages and moral teachings. Now, this sounds very much like the Jewish take on the Torah. For Jews, the Torah is the guiding force in their lives as was the Bible for the Pilgrims. While in England, the Pilgrims were persecuted for their religious beliefs. Jews can certainly relate to this aspect for we have been the objects of persecution for centuries. It should be noted that while Jews have always worked for the rights of others, when the Pilgrims and other Christian groups came to America, they did not always give full rights to those who were not of their faith. Fortunately this changed as time went on. The Pilgrims came here seeking freedom to live and worship as they pleased. The Jews came here for the same reasons. In the shtetls of Europe they were subject to conscription by the Russian army or prejudiced against in government or in business. In the New World they could be free from the Inquisition and practice Judaism openly.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com as the Promised Land. Here both groups could obtain the opportunities denied them under the old reigns in Europe. Here they could start fresh and plot their own destinies. When the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts, they built their own little communities and houses of worship. So, too, did the Jews. Living as a community is a very integral part of Judaism. Rituals and prayers are done as a group and certain prayers can only be done in the presence of a minyan, a religious quorum of 10 Jews. Building communities and establishing houses of worship are important goals for any group. The white clapboard Congregational church is a ubiquitous sight throughout the center greens in New England towns. Jewish synagogues especially in the major cities where most Jews settled are testaments to the permanency these people wished to convey. Lastly, Thanksgiving expresses one of the most Jewish of sentiments, that of gratefulness. The whole concept of giving thanks is one that observant Jews do from the moment of arising in the morning. Throughout the day there are additional opportunities to say thank you to God for Gods many blessings. These are uttered over bread, food, special occasions and the like. The Pilgrims gratitude was born of a desire to survive in a hostile and harsh environment. They were grateful to be alive, those that had survived, and this gratefulness gave them courage to persevere. Whether we are Jews or Christians, another religion or none at all, we can all relate to the Pilgrims and their journey to the New World. Their story is a universal story of the right to be free and worship or not as one sees fit. It is everybodys story of being grateful for the basics of life: home, food and family. It is everybodys human need to say thank you and to take stock of the things for which there are no price tags: health, life and love. As for me, I used to remind my children that we Jews have deep roots in America. After all, I would say jokingly, their dads relatives, the Siegals, (seagulls) came over with the Mayflower. Happy Thanksgiving! Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 T hanksgiving is my kind of holiday. Apart from the thanks part, the primary purpose of this celebration is eating. That is the one thing I do quite well. Thanksgiving is the beginning of a feasting frenzy that would make Richard Simmons sweat to the goodies. Any thoughts of dieting at this time of the year are merely blowing in the wind. Hopefully, not in my direction. Our Pilgrim Fathers came up with the idea of a Thanksgiving feast. The Pilgrim Mothers were too busy doing the wash and caring for the children to think of any more work. The Pilgrim Fathers were sitting around waiting for someone to invent television so they could all watch a football game when someone had an idea. Most ideas are born in the midst of great boredom. That is why so many of them are...well...stupid. Theres nothing to do, one bored Pilgrim Father said. Lets get together and have a feast. Because nothing else was happening, the other Pilgrim Fathers got excited about this idea. The Pilgrim Mothers, however, had some different thoughts about this crazy feast idea. After all, they would have to do all the work and Oprah Winfrey had not been born yet to lead them in a chorus of whining and complaining and getting in touch with their real feelings. The Pilgrim Mothers wanted a Tupperware party, but since it was not yet a two-party system, they could only do one party. The Pilgrim Fathers won this one. However, like the good Puritan wives they were, they humored their husbands and began preparations for the first Thanksgiving feast. Because this was the first Thanksgiving, it was a simple affair compared with the ones to follow. At the first one nobody said, Weve always done it this way. Because it was never done before. However, the second Thanksgiving was beset with this sort of thing. A tradition, someone wisely pointed out, is something done at least once. What the Pilgrim Mothers did not count on was company for dinner. After all, they were thousands of miles from their nearest relatives with a big pond between them. They assumed, and rightly so, that they were safe from the intrusion of company on what would be the heaviest workday for the kitchen crew. Have you ever noticed that when you are planning a feast of some kind, relatives who never bother you the rest of the year (something to be thankful for) seem to gravitate to your gravy bowl? There is nothing like unexpected company to put pizzazz in a Thanksgiving celebration. Who wants pizza for Thanksgiving when there is so much turkey? Imagine the Pilgrim Mothers surprise when the Pilgrim Fathers told them (probably on Thanksgiving morning) that they had invited guests for the feast. I can imagine some ears were stinging that first Thanksgiving Day. The Pilgrim Fathers braved through the stinging rebukes from their wives...for months. Perhaps the biggest anomaly of Thanksgiving is the mountain of leftovers the next day and for weeks to follow. No matter how much turkey is gobbled up or how many people are around that Thanksgiving table, the leftovers are enormous. There is more turkey on Friday than on Thanksgiving. I cannot prove this, but I highly suspect the turkeys we have today keep growing even after we cook them. Maybe when placed in a cold refrigerator over night, they expand. I really do not know what takes place, but something happens to that turkey when left overnight in a refrigerator. The big challenge is how to prepare leftover turkey so it does not look or taste like turkey. Thanksgiving is a marvelous time for family and friends to get together to celebrate the goodness of the Lord. Each family has its own special tradition that seems to bring it together. This year, especially, we have so much to be thankful. For some it starts with a Thanksgiving Eve service. Gathering as a congregation to express to God thanks for another year of bounty and blessing is important for Christians. Personally, I like a Thanksgiving eve service over a Thanksgiving morning service. In the evening service, you do not have to rush through the celebration to get home in time for the big feast. Giving thanks to God should be a leisurely thing, not something rushed through while thinking of something else. At Thanksgiving, we should bring a bouquet of blessing that fills the room with a sweet fragrance of praise that lingers all year long. Some of the best and most fragrant bouquets are the small ones. Remembering the big blessings is easy. The smaller blessings are much harder to keep in mind. Some of them we even take for granted. This Thanksgiving I am going to make a point to look over some blessing I have been overlooking. It is those small blessing that truly sustain us throughout the year. The Bible reminds us why we are to give thanks, not only at Thanksgiving time, but also all year long. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:5758 KJV). There is so much to thank God for; one day is not near enough. Let us thank God every day for His goodness. Even for leftover blessings. The Rev. James L.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com On Nov. 7, Marielena Stuart, a conservative Republican candidate running for a Florida seat in the United States Senate in 2012, addressed the participants at a meeting of Ocala Tea Party Solutions. Stuart arrived in the United States from Cuba as a legal immigrant after suffering a life of misery and oppression under the communist regime of Fidel Castro She began to experience the blessings of freedom thereafter as a resident and citizen of the United States. She had endured the full force of communist persecution when her father and uncle were imprisoned, starved, tortured, and executed as political prisoners in their own country. She said that living under the constant oppression and privation of the communist regime has given her a distinct advantage. Recognizing the socialist trend in America, she decided to run for the Senate and help change the moral and fiscal climate in Washington. As a conservative candidate for public office, she sees herself as one of the establishments greatest fears. Marielena and her husband George, a retired police officer, have two children, who are homeschooled. This allows the family to travel and campaign across the state of Florida. Living in the town of Santa Maria, near Naples, the family were dismayed to discover that their town is a participant in Agenda 21, a United Nations program that allegedly systematically infringes on private property rights and American sovereignty, while citizens are discouraged and restricted from engaging in the political processes and social dynamics of their town. Stuart describes this as a government within a government and Agenda 21 as a form of international communism. In his endorsement of Republican candidate for U.S. Senate visits local Tea Party Stuart, former U.S. Representative Robert K. Dornan, writes: As a columnist for Renew America, Marielena Stuart has demonstrated her expertise in foreign affairs, national defense, and strategic military matters, especially those dealing with ChinaU.S. relations. Stuarts platform is prolife, pro Second Amendment, a balanced federal budget, and energy independence. She will fight to repeal Obamacare and to simplify the tax code. She says she will work hard to eliminate activist judges, close the Federal Reserve, and quit membership in the United Nations. If elected, she pledges to dedicate herself to repairing the enormous damage done to our nation.

Fast?An industrious turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to perfect a better turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store get together. Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs! They all asked the farmer how it tasted. Dont know said the farmer, Never could catch the sucker!Thanksgiving wishes May your stuffing be tasty May your turkey be plump, May your potatoes and gravy Have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious And your pies take the prize, And may your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off your thighs Oak Run residents Dick and Jane Frank wish you a happy Thanksgiving. PUN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 19 Women of the World hear about rescuing animals On Nov. 4 the Women of the World had their monthly meeting. This months speaker was the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary located on S.W. 5th Street (near S.W. 17th St and S. Pine Ave). In addition to President Keith Belisle speaking about rescuing animals, Vice President Kenneth Lane answered other questions from the floor while carrying Hobe a 17 year old Owl they rescued around the room so attendees could get a close look at the owl.

Many celebrate by having a big turkey dinner with family members they havent seen for a while. Its a day when the turkey gets stuffed in the morning and the family in the afternoon. It can also be a fun day with stories from Pun Alley.Good hunting Last year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. Man, you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department! Doggin itEvery Thanksgiving our family would all get together with relatives even though we could only afford one turkey. We children were all at a separate table, and would have to wait for the platters to reach us after passing by the adults. Even though I longed for some white meat, all too often the turkey would run out before the platters reached us, and I would not even get dark meat. We would have to settle for hot dogs. From that experience, I learned a very valuable lesson in life. Hope for the breast, but prepare for the wurst. DrumsticksThe government officials who talked turkey spoke gobbledygook. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls. Did you hear about the conservative turkey? It has two right wings. The bandleader saved the drumsticks from 38 turkeys because he wanted seventy-six tom bones. Using a new recipe, Johns wife put the turkey in aluminum foil. She had to roast it until it was brown. Twenty hours later, the aluminum foil was still silver. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. My wife gave me a haircut this morning. Now, shes going to make Thanksgiving Day dinner with all the trimmings. For Thanksgiving, the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. The hostess served a delicious turkey dinner that tickled all of the guests. She forgot to remove the feathers. Teacher: Why do we have a Thanksgiving holiday? Student: So we know when to start Christmas shopping. History books tell us the Pilgrims ate wild turkeys. That isnt so. The turkeys werent wild until they found out what the Pilgrims had in mind. Welcomed guestsA man in living in the corridor area called his son in California and said, I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; 45 years of misery is enough. Pop, what are you talking about? the son screamed. We cant stand the sight of each other any longer, the man said. Were sick of each other, and Im sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her. Then he hung up. Frantic, the son called his sister, who exploded on the phone. Like heck theyre getting divorced, she shouted, Ill take care of this. She called Ocala immediately, and screamed at the old man, You are not getting divorced. Dont do a single thing until I get there. Im calling my brother back, and well both be there tomorrow. Until then, dont do a thing, do you hear me? The man hung up his phone and turned to his wife.

OTOW Lions ClubLions Clubs throughout the country hold our nations veterans in high regard, so the OTOW Lions Club was pleased to provide the Veterans Day program on Nov. 11 at the flag pole area of the Health and Recreation Building to honor our nations veterans.

Joan Stetson sang the National Anthem. The Sunshine Singers entertained the audience with a medley of patriotic songs. In lieu of a guest speaker, World War II veterans present at this event were honored.

Individual results have also changed, with Bill Hull taking over high average for the men. Linda McIntyre has maintained her position leading the women. Notable individual games in the past month were bowled by Dick Hull, 87 pins over his average, Pat Gorczok 54 over, and Rick DAddio and Janie Duncanson both 44 pins over average. Bowlers improving their averages from last year include Lacoste Rivers, up 19 pins, and Barbara Buecher and Bill Shampine, both up 14 pins. The OTOW Bowling League is pleased to announce that it is now at full strength with 18 teams and with four bowlers each. OTOW SoftballIt has been quite a week as Wise Way Auto finally broke its losing streak and won a game, but, as fate would have it, the team followed up with two consecutive losses. Its been rough for the Wise Way team, which just cant seem to muster up some wins. Still, its a long season, so things should turn around for them. On the other wide of the coin, Dr. Dunns team mustered up some steam and has won the last three games, moving the team up to a tie for second place, while Florida Eye has finally taken over first place. The top four teams seem quite balanced, and it looks like they will be seesawing back and forth into first place. They all have some power hitters and have been fine-tuning themselves and playing like a unit. Its quite an experience for these over-55 year old plays to display their talents and sometimes even seemingly miraculous plays on the field. Its a special joy to see our 70 and 80 year old players push themselves as they try to keep pace with the younger players. Oh, the joy of the game, but, oh, the aches and pains that result from it, but its nothing serious that cant be helped with a little Ben Gay! The game keeps the players young at heart and provides needed exercise and the development of enduring friendships.

Powell as its new Chief Executive Officer. Powell brings extensive leadership experience and expertise in leading mental health and substance abuse agencies. He holds a MS in Clinical Counseling from Wright State University, an MA in Philanthropy and Development from St. Marys University, and a BS in Communications from Ohio University. Powells experience spans seven states and numerous strategic visions for funding, governing, developing and administering the best programs for recovery, resiliency and strength based models. He comes to Ocala from Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia where he was the chief executive officer serving a 10 county region. According to Stephen Spivey, a member and former president of the non-profits board of directors, Mr. Powell, in a relatively short time there, has been able to establish a lot of key relationships with not only legislators but other health care officials. His expertise in integrated health care will be invaluable in navigating the changing climate of health care. Powell said he is honored to be selected as the next CEO of the Centers, Inc., and is confident that he will be able to provide the creative energy necessary to fulfill the Centers mission. The change in leadership of the Centers was Nov. 14 as Russell Rasco begins his retirement after 33 years of service to the Centers. The Centers, a private, non-profit behavioral health care organization, has been serving Marion and Citrus Counties for over 39 years. With four locations in Marion County and three in Citrus County, it is one of the top ten employers supporting over 560 trained professionals.

In partnership with Kids Central, Inc., the Centers also provides case management and crisis response services for children and families in Circuit 5.

OTOW Lions ClubLions Clubs throughout the country hold our nations veterans in high regard, so the OTOW Lions Club was pleased to provide the Veterans Day program on Nov. 11 at the flag pole area of the Health and Recreation Building to honor our nations veterans. Lion Richard Spahn welcomed guests and visitors, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave the invocation. OTOW Lion Ralph Mills was introduced, and he, in turn, introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. Spahn gave the Veterans Day Remembrance speech. This was followed by the Presentation of the Colors by the West Port High School R.O.T.C and audience participation in the Pledge of Allegiance. Joan Stetson sang the National Anthem. The Sunshine Singers entertained the audience with a medley of patriotic songs. In lieu of a guest speaker, World War II veterans present at this event were honored. Kenneth Cohen presented the Memorial Wreath, which was followed by Taps and the Retirement of the Colors by the West Port High School R.O.T.C. Lion Saundra Deffler sang God Bless America and after various acknowledgements, Chaplain Robert Benson ended the service with the benediction.

Individual results have also changed, with Bill Hull taking over high average for the men. Linda McIntyre has maintained her position leading the women. Notable individual games in the past month were bowled by Dick Hull, 87 pins over his average, Pat Gorczok 54 over, and Rick DAddio and Janie Duncanson both 44 pins over average. Bowlers improving their averages from last year include Lacoste Rivers, up 19 pins, and Barbara Buecher and Bill Shampine, both up 14 pins. The OTOW Bowling League is pleased to announce that it is now at full strength with 18 teams and with four bowlers each.

Many celebrate by having a big turkey dinner with family members they havent seen for a while. Its a day when the turkey gets stuffed in the morning and the family in the afternoon. It can also be a fun day with stories from Pun Alley.Good hunting Last year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. Man, you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department! Doggin itEvery Thanksgiving our family would all get together with relatives even though we could only afford one turkey. We children were all at a separate table, and would have to wait for the platters to reach us after passing by the adults. Even though I longed for some white meat, all too often the turkey would run out before the platters reached us, and I would not even get dark meat. We would have to settle for hot dogs. From that experience, I learned a very valuable lesson in life. Hope for the breast, but prepare for the wurst. DrumsticksThe government officials who talked turkey spoke gobbledygook. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls. Did you hear about the conservative turkey? It has two right wings. The bandleader saved the drumsticks from 38 turkeys because he wanted seventy-six tom bones. Using a new recipe, Johns wife put the turkey in aluminum foil. She had to roast it until it was brown. Twenty hours later, the aluminum foil was still silver. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. My wife gave me a haircut this morning. Now, shes going to make Thanksgiving Day dinner with all the trimmings. For Thanksgiving, the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. The hostess served a delicious turkey dinner that tickled all of the guests. She forgot to remove the feathers. Teacher: Why do we have a Thanksgiving holiday? Student: So we know when to start Christmas shopping. History books tell us the Pilgrims ate wild turkeys. That isnt so. The turkeys werent wild until they found out what the Pilgrims had in mind. Welcomed guestsA man in living in the corridor area called his son in California and said, I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; 45 years of misery is enough. Pop, what are you talking about? the son screamed. We cant stand the sight of each other any longer, the man said. Were sick of each other, and Im sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her. Then he hung up. Frantic, the son called his sister, who exploded on the phone. Like heck theyre getting divorced, she shouted, Ill take care of this. She called Ocala immediately, and screamed at the old man, You are not getting divorced. Dont do a single thing until I get there. Im calling my brother back, and well both be there tomorrow. Until then, dont do a thing, do you hear me? The man hung up his phone and turned to his wife.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com On Nov. 7, Marielena Stuart, a conservative Republican candidate running for a Florida seat in the United States Senate in 2012, addressed the participants at a meeting of Ocala Tea Party Solutions. Stuart arrived in the United States from Cuba as a legal immigrant after suffering a life of misery and oppression under the communist regime of Fidel Castro She began to experience the blessings of freedom thereafter as a resident and citizen of the United States. She had endured the full force of communist persecution when her father and uncle were imprisoned, starved, tortured, and executed as political prisoners in their own country. She said that living under the constant oppression and privation of the communist regime has given her a distinct advantage. Recognizing the socialist trend in America, she decided to run for the Senate and help change the moral and fiscal climate in Washington. As a conservative candidate for public office, she sees herself as one of the establishments greatest fears. Marielena and her husband George, a retired police officer, have two children, who are homeschooled. This allows the family to travel and campaign across the state of Florida. Living in the town of Santa Maria, near Naples, the family were dismayed to discover that their town is a participant in Agenda 21, a United Nations program that allegedly systematically infringes on private property rights and American sovereignty, while citizens are discouraged and restricted from engaging in the political processes and social dynamics of their town. Stuart describes this as a government within a government and Agenda 21 as a form of international communism. In his endorsement of Republican candidate for U.S. Senate visits local Tea Party Stuart, former U.S. Representative Robert K. Dornan, writes: As a columnist for Renew America, Marielena Stuart has demonstrated her expertise in foreign affairs, national defense, and strategic military matters, especially those dealing with ChinaU.S. relations. Stuarts platform is prolife, pro Second Amendment, a balanced federal budget, and energy independence. She will fight to repeal Obamacare and to simplify the tax code. She says she will work hard to eliminate activist judges, close the Federal Reserve, and quit membership in the United Nations. If elected, she pledges to dedicate herself to repairing the enormous damage done to our nation.

Fast?An industrious turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to perfect a better turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store get together. Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs! They all asked the farmer how it tasted. Dont know said the farmer, Never could catch the sucker!Thanksgiving wishes May your stuffing be tasty May your turkey be plump, May your potatoes and gravy Have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious And your pies take the prize, And may your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off your thighs Oak Run residents Dick and Jane Frank wish you a happy Thanksgiving.

This months speaker was the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary located on S.W. 5th Street (near S.W. 17th St and S. Pine Ave). In addition to President Keith Belisle speaking about rescuing animals, Vice President Kenneth Lane answered other questions from the floor while carrying Hobe a 17 year old Owl they rescued around the room so attendees could get a close look at the owl. The OWLS organization received many cash donations at the meeting as well as paper goods, bleach, and many other items needed for cleaning the animals living quarters. They will gladly take people or small groups for a tour of the facility by appointment. Ken and Keith can be contacted by phone at 352-895-0451. Their website is www.owls-ocalainc.org.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com as the Promised Land. Here both groups could obtain the opportunities denied them under the old reigns in Europe. Here they could start fresh and plot their own destinies. When the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts, they built their own little communities and houses of worship. So, too, did the Jews. Living as a community is a very integral part of Judaism. Rituals and prayers are done as a group and certain prayers can only be done in the presence of a minyan, a religious quorum of 10 Jews. Building communities and establishing houses of worship are important goals for any group. The white clapboard Congregational church is a ubiquitous sight throughout the center greens in New England towns. Jewish synagogues especially in the major cities where most Jews settled are testaments to the permanency these people wished to convey. Lastly, Thanksgiving expresses one of the most Jewish of sentiments, that of gratefulness. The whole concept of giving thanks is one that observant Jews do from the moment of arising in the morning. Throughout the day there are additional opportunities to say thank you to God for Gods many blessings. These are uttered over bread, food, special occasions and the like. The Pilgrims gratitude was born of a desire to survive in a hostile and harsh environment. They were grateful to be alive, those that had survived, and this gratefulness gave them courage to persevere. Whether we are Jews or Christians, another religion or none at all, we can all relate to the Pilgrims and their journey to the New World. Their story is a universal story of the right to be free and worship or not as one sees fit. It is everybodys story of being grateful for the basics of life: home, food and family. It is everybodys human need to say thank you and to take stock of the things for which there are no price tags: health, life and love. As for me, I used to remind my children that we Jews have deep roots in America. After all, I would say jokingly, their dads relatives, the Siegals, (seagulls) came over with the Mayflower. Happy Thanksgiving! Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 T hanksgiving is my kind of holiday. Apart from the thanks part, the primary purpose of this celebration is eating. That is the one thing I do quite well. Thanksgiving is the beginning of a feasting frenzy that would make Richard Simmons sweat to the goodies. Any thoughts of dieting at this time of the year are merely blowing in the wind. Hopefully, not in my direction. Our Pilgrim Fathers came up with the idea of a Thanksgiving feast. The Pilgrim Mothers were too busy doing the wash and caring for the children to think of any more work. The Pilgrim Fathers were sitting around waiting for someone to invent television so they could all watch a football game when someone had an idea. Most ideas are born in the midst of great boredom. That is why so many of them are...well...stupid. Theres nothing to do, one bored Pilgrim Father said. Lets get together and have a feast. Because nothing else was happening, the other Pilgrim Fathers got excited about this idea. The Pilgrim Mothers, however, had some different thoughts about this crazy feast idea. After all, they would have to do all the work and Oprah Winfrey had not been born yet to lead them in a chorus of whining and complaining and getting in touch with their real feelings. The Pilgrim Mothers wanted a Tupperware party, but since it was not yet a two-party system, they could only do one party. The Pilgrim Fathers won this one. However, like the good Puritan wives they were, they humored their husbands and began preparations for the first Thanksgiving feast. Because this was the first Thanksgiving, it was a simple affair compared with the ones to follow. At the first one nobody said, Weve always done it this way. Because it was never done before. However, the second Thanksgiving was beset with this sort of thing. A tradition, someone wisely pointed out, is something done at least once. What the Pilgrim Mothers did not count on was company for dinner. After all, they were thousands of miles from their nearest relatives with a big pond between them. They assumed, and rightly so, that they were safe from the intrusion of company on what would be the heaviest workday for the kitchen crew. Have you ever noticed that when you are planning a feast of some kind, relatives who never bother you the rest of the year (something to be thankful for) seem to gravitate to your gravy bowl? There is nothing like unexpected company to put pizzazz in a Thanksgiving celebration. Who wants pizza for Thanksgiving when there is so much turkey? Imagine the Pilgrim Mothers surprise when the Pilgrim Fathers told them (probably on Thanksgiving morning) that they had invited guests for the feast. I can imagine some ears were stinging that first Thanksgiving Day. The Pilgrim Fathers braved through the stinging rebukes from their wives...for months. Perhaps the biggest anomaly of Thanksgiving is the mountain of leftovers the next day and for weeks to follow. No matter how much turkey is gobbled up or how many people are around that Thanksgiving table, the leftovers are enormous. There is more turkey on Friday than on Thanksgiving. I cannot prove this, but I highly suspect the turkeys we have today keep growing even after we cook them. Maybe when placed in a cold refrigerator over night, they expand. I really do not know what takes place, but something happens to that turkey when left overnight in a refrigerator. The big challenge is how to prepare leftover turkey so it does not look or taste like turkey. Thanksgiving is a marvelous time for family and friends to get together to celebrate the goodness of the Lord. Each family has its own special tradition that seems to bring it together. This year, especially, we have so much to be thankful. For some it starts with a Thanksgiving Eve service. Gathering as a congregation to express to God thanks for another year of bounty and blessing is important for Christians. Personally, I like a Thanksgiving eve service over a Thanksgiving morning service. In the evening service, you do not have to rush through the celebration to get home in time for the big feast. Giving thanks to God should be a leisurely thing, not something rushed through while thinking of something else. At Thanksgiving, we should bring a bouquet of blessing that fills the room with a sweet fragrance of praise that lingers all year long. Some of the best and most fragrant bouquets are the small ones. Remembering the big blessings is easy. The smaller blessings are much harder to keep in mind. Some of them we even take for granted. This Thanksgiving I am going to make a point to look over some blessing I have been overlooking. It is those small blessing that truly sustain us throughout the year. The Bible reminds us why we are to give thanks, not only at Thanksgiving time, but also all year long. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:5758 KJV). There is so much to thank God for; one day is not near enough. Let us thank God every day for His goodness. Even for leftover blessings. The Rev. James L.

F all. Its my favorite time of the year. It brings out the Yankee in me. It has me decorating my home with pumpkins, leaves, mums and all manner of harvest motifs. It has me baking pumpkin bread, cooking up cranberry sauce and hunting up my favorite apple pie recipe. It causes me to hum We Gather Together and Over the River and Through the Woods. And yes, that cool air we get around this time in Florida is fine with me; my windows are open to the full blast of that delicious air. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I couldnt be happier. If we look at the Thanksgiving story from a historical perspective, there are many things that Jews and the Pilgrims share. This could be why I like Thanksgiving; it lets me be part of the American culture while retaining my Jewish heritage. The Pilgrims were great Bible readers. They were influenced by its messages and moral teachings. Now, this sounds very much like the Jewish take on the Torah. For Jews, the Torah is the guiding force in their lives as was the Bible for the Pilgrims. While in England, the Pilgrims were persecuted for their religious beliefs. Jews can certainly relate to this aspect for we have been the objects of persecution for centuries. It should be noted that while Jews have always worked for the rights of others, when the Pilgrims and other Christian groups came to America, they did not always give full rights to those who were not of their faith. Fortunately this changed as time went on. The Pilgrims came here seeking freedom to live and worship as they pleased. The Jews came here for the same reasons. In the shtetls of Europe they were subject to conscription by the Russian army or prejudiced against in government or in business. In the New World they could be free from the Inquisition and practice Judaism openly. Both the Pilgrims and the Jews viewed America Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Christs Church of Marion CountySaturday, Nov. 19: Mens Prayer Group, 9 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 20: Sunday school, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23: Thanksgiving Eve Prayer Service, 7 p.m. Christs Church of Marion County, 6768 S.W. 80th St. (off State Road 200), Ocala.

Your strong leadership will help settle those still unresolved situations. Support comes from a surprising source. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your problem-solving talents shine as you move to cool down heated emotions. You also inspire trust in all parties when you act with careful consideration of their feelings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) That long-delayed commitment begins to look better to you. But theres still a crucial fact or two you need to know about it. A health problem needs to be taken care of. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont waste time trying to learn why someone you relied on is wavering in his or her support of your stand on a workplace issue. Move on with the help of more steadfast allies. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Relationships enter a brighter period, both at home and in the workplace. Prospects also look good for single Leos and Leonas, who can expect a welcome visit from Cupid.

This makes it easier for you to weigh your options and make decisions. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Ask your partner for an explanation of what seems to be a sign of strain in your relationship. The sooner you understand the problem, the sooner you can both act to resolve it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A new challenge in the workplace holds an exciting promise for the future.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com So quick to judgeBecause of the viciousness in politics, I understand how the media and others will take an accusation of sexual harassment, even though it comes out years later, and try to destroy the accused. I guess I am in the minority but shouldnt we hear the facts, exactly what was said or done, what proof the accuser has, and what were the motives of all involved before we rush to judgment? If Herman Cain actually did something that is despicable, why did it take years for it to come out and why now? One writer said in a letter printed else where and I quote: Any man who uses power, position or money to achieve sex represents the epitome of impotence and is certainly unworthy of public office. This was said in reference to Cain even though there is no evidence or even a claim that he achieved sex as the writer put it. I do wonder if he feels the same about Bill Clinton, who did have sex with an intern, and in the oval office! If not, his prejudice and politics are showing. What surprises me even more is the Joe Paterno immediate firing. We should know more about this by the time this appears in the paper, but why did so many agree with this firing without knowing all the facts? Exactly what was he told about the incident? At this time no one knows for sure. There is no way I believe that Paterno would not have intervened if he had knowledge of a sexual act being performed on a minor. This man is one of the most respected men in America and he is thrown to the wolves based on his actions. Isnt it possible that based on what he was told, he thought telling his Athletic Director would be sufficient? The coach that told him about the incident has now said he saw the act and did nothing to stop it, he just walked away. What kind of man would not have intervened on behalf of that boy? To make matters worse, that coach is not being fired, maybe you understand it better than I do. Regarding the above, we will soon have all the facts and if they are as I suspect they are, a lot of people will be sorry they jumped on the guilty bandwagon so quickly. One is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. If I was convicted every time I innocently hugged a lady, I would be sentenced to life! Wayne Rackley Ocala Crochet Club thanksWriting this letter has become an annual event for me but a very pleasant and grateful event. Devereux Kids has a program that serves the residents in an area of Ocala dealing with huge unemployment and poverty levels much higher than surrounding areas even in our county. For the past three years the wonderful women who participate in the Cherrywood Estates Crochet Club have made and donated absolutely beautiful baby sweaters, caps, mittens and blankets to help keep infants and babies warm. During our first cold spell last week one blanket after another went out the door to very appreciative young mothers. I was particularly touched this year when one of the baby caps was shown to an adult cancer patient. A request was received from patients at the hospital receiving chemotherapy as to whether we could donate crochet caps to keep their heads warm after they lost their hair due to their treatment. The group from Cherrywood immediately went to task and within two weeks we were able to take almost 50 cheerful, brightly colored hand made crochet caps to the hospital. From the babies to young to speak, the young mothers and the cancer patients at the hospital, this special thank you goes to the wonderful ladies in the Cherrywood Crochet Club. You touch many lives and we are very grateful.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com of legitimate government functions, such as public safety and protection of citizens against economic abuse. Former President George W. Bush suggested that consumers primary freedom and most important contribution to the nations economy is to shop and spend. Free marketers are in complete agreement. In addition to our freedom to spend, we have a periodic freedom to turn out of office those politicians who continue to blow all that free-market smoke in our ears. Free markets are as extinct as a free lunch. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 words what the majority of the country was feeling after over two years of war. All in about two minutes. For most Americans the address increased in popularity only after many, many years since he enunciated those words. It has been written that Lincoln was not entirely satisfied with his speech that day. Some were critical of the president, saying that he had not said enough, that even his invitation was merely an afterthought. The war had been going badly for the Union, but the victory four months earlier was an opportunity for redirection, and realistic optimism. Mr. Lincoln viewed it with others as evidence that the nation had turned the corner and headed for reunification of the states. The sacrifices were taking their toll on the nation with a strain on the economy and over 50,000 casualties alone at Gettysburg. Today, we are not engaged in a great civil war, but we are being tested, again and again. The question remains as it did then, can we endure, how will we endure? It is a question Lincoln examined, not only in his address at Gettysburg, but throughout his term as president. He echoed the sentiments of the people, both north and south. With our present administration and its unethical behavior, ask yourself at the core, are these people really governing as statesmen? If any government places individual goals above those of the people then they are not public servants but dictators, including either and all political parties. If the current occupant of the White House cannot effectively communicate in a few minutes with integrity, and without the drawn out egocentric didactic speech, he probably doesnt know what his subject matter is. Lincoln and the country in 1863 were more divided than today, but as a leader he asserted the union of states shall conquer the issues and dilemmas of that time. There was sincerity behind his words, a resolve and vision which would withstand any challenge. He was intelligent and humble enough to admit mistakes and change actions when needed, not years later as we observe these days. After the war ended and past his death and reconstruction, the country would be on the path to where we are today. If you arent there already, my battle cry to all is first know our history, read, investigate and question. You may find that many issues and attitudes will be defined and your perceptions illuminated by researching the past. It will begin to make sense with a little effort. Caution, do not rely on one source of information alone, check out at least three versions on the same subject to achieve a truer understanding. In our present time we, as the people, generally appear disconnected from the government that Lincoln and our Founding Fathers had represented. We continue to hold a sacred and inherent obligation to honor our veterans and all who serve in the armed forces. Those who served in every military conflict from the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War to the present engagements, must continue to receive approbation. This Saturday will mark the 148th anniversary of the speech that Mr. Lincoln offered at the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Last week we honored our nations veterans. Let us be reminded that we must continue to endure during these unsettled times, offering our last full measure of devotion, to our country, along with every member of the military. This was Lincolns message to the people, and it rings true to this day. POPIN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Useful idiots It is so easy to manipulate some people. The phrase useful idiots sums it up very nicely. We have these useful idiots with us in every generation, and in our generation in abundance, since the brain manipulation started decades ago. Our educated class is a class brainwashed, and propagandized by liberal professors who hijacked our educational system decades ago. All that money for phony education. I want a refund of my tax dollars used to pay for this nonsense. It cannot happen here. It already is happening. We are this close to subjugation. Open your eyes, look around you. Recently, I attended an event where I was searched every day, my belongings. The catch words are safety and security. That is just how easy it is. I no longer fly. The searchers, (fellow citizens) did their searching with relish, as do community patrols who are concerned with our safety, and security. A few days ago, I was issued an edict to keep my garage door closed at all times. It is supposed to be my garage door. Dont I have the right to decide if it is open or closed, for my convenience? Something so mundane is the bailiwick of citizen spies? We are told when, and how to use everything. Recycle, do not buy, buy only what you are told, you use too much to heat, drive too much, cook, two-minute showers, etc. Is that freedom? We must cut back, while millions are allowed to rush over our borders at will. These people are taking my water, and everything else I use. I am forced to share resources with them, like it or not. Logic should tell us something, but try to tell that to a liberal useful idiot. They want to hear none of this. Useful idiots are so devoid of common sense, and logic, and information. As a first step to rectify this situation may I humbly suggest useful idiots read: The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, just to see how bad things can get. If these useful idiots are prepared to experience this: Be my guest, but do not expect me to share the experience. I choose to decline. D.I.

Oak Run TravelSeveral years ago I reluctantly went to the Paul Anka show. My reluctance was due to the fact that I thought he was too old and had lost his singing voice. Was I ever mistaken!

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com D uring our endless election season the expression free markets never wears out. Some politicians believe and preach that free market is a national value worthy of inclusion with patriotism, motherhood, apple pie and baseball. The problem is there aint no free markets. The term free market as used by todays politicians is a misnomer. Politicians use it a lot because it sounds righteous. The idea of buying and selling things free from interference or control began with a guy named Adam Smith back in the 18th century, around the time America was becoming a nation. His timing was good. Our colonists were irritated by the king of England sticking his nose into how they did business and trying to tax what they bought and sold. So they declared their independence and told the king to get lost. Free market based on supply and demand received a new boost from economist Milton Friedman in 1962 and has been a rallying cry of libertarians and conservatives ever since. Republicans cant say the words often enough, as if mumbling free market is some sort of mystical mantra. The phony part of the free market baloney is zillions of dollars of government subsidies, tax preferences, and laws that allow bad-boy businessmen to stay out of jail free, as evidenced by the corrupt manipulations which caused our current recession. In addition to volumes of controls, regulations, enticements, and all sorts of corporate welfare, government has become a major investor in the markets for non-military goods and services. Recent examples have been the Obama administrations spending millions just in time to help a green energy company go bankrupt, and offering tax subsidies to manipulate development of electric cars which will be sold to a few adventurous citizens at exorbitant prices. Hold on there! Isnt the Obama guy a Democrat? Sure, but everybody in Washington plays the free markets game even liberals. Gaining and keeping political power is the real name of the game. Re-quoting what we wrote on another occasion, free market evangelizing is power politics dressed up in a patriotic term intended to disguise government connivance in every aspect of our economy. Free market preaching by business is sanctimonious sounding cover-up of their solicitations for subsidies and tax credits, as well as manipulation www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 S ometimes, visiting some of the activities in Ocala makes you start thinking about some serious things. That was the case over the weekend when I went to Marion Woods to view a display connected to a Vietnam War prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton. Back in the 1960s, I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Because I was married and later, because I had a daughter, I didn't get drafted. I went as far as a pre-induction physical, and they made note of my allergies and hay fever, but I never heard anything again. I did, however, lose a couple of friends, Frank Campeau of Bergenfield, N.J.,and John Kapeluck of Cresskill, N.J. John died in combat, and Frank died on a shipboard fire just off the coast of Vietnam.There may have been more school mates that I don't know about. Like everyone else, I heard about the horrors of the war, both from a combat perspective and a prisoner of war view. So I was drawn to the display last weekend. There weren't that many artifacts, but two of them stood out. One was a salvaged door to a cell, with a small, barred window. You got an idea how poor a view these prisoners had. The other was really brutal. It was a lead item that attached to a piece of concrete, and it had curves in it where a pair of legs, small legs, would be anchored to that concrete. There were many pictures on display at this event over the Veterans Day weekend, and one of them just showed a pair of legs being shackled down by that piece of lead. It made you cringe when you looked at it. That meant that those prisoners were lying on concrete beds on their backs while being held. There were a lot of other pictures, a map showing the location of the prison, and an aerial view of the Hanoi buildings. A lot of soldiers who came back from Vietnam weren't treated very well by the average citizens of this country. It's too bad this display wasn't available in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It would have showed, much more than words, how cruel the North Vietnamese, and possibly the Red Chinese, were in their treatment of their prisoners. The display was courtesy of an unnamed man from Jacksonville who obtained the artifacts and transported them himself to the display site in southeastern Ocala. He wants his privacy, but was willing to make the display available to the public. If it ever comes back to this area, we'll make sure that we notify the public. It's something you shouldn't miss.

L ast weeks news provided a lot of soul-searching, as people searched for answers. The arrest of a former Penn State assistant football coach on a 40-count indictment involving child sex abuse shook the country and cost the jobs of iconic Joe Paterno, head football coach, three school officials, including the president, and an assistant coach who saw one of the crimes in progress and made only the minimal report, never telling law enforcement authorities. Jerry Sandusky's arrest put the spotlight on this type of crime more than it has been in recent memory. Experts say, however, that this is just a small sample of what really goes on in many places in this country. Anyone who read the news reports last week will never have an excuse for not reporting incidents to the proper officials. Everyone now knows that the only way to cut back on these incidents is to be vigilant, listen to children and, most importantly, don't put them in situations where things can happen. We hope that all across the country last week there were parents speaking of a normally taboo situtation, issuing warnings to their children about both strangers and about those who are family members or friends. Parents should make sure their children are never alone with anyone who could take advantage of them, and yes, it does happen, even if folks don't think it can. And when parents get the children back from occasions such as this, question them thoroughly (but not threateningly) about what they did during the time away from the parents. Certainly there have been teachers, coaches and others who run children's programs who have taken advantage of their positions, but these people are in the minority. It's very important that the good people in these professions and activities listen to the kids and act on any information they may be given. Please keep the children safe. We don't like publishing stories about arrests for things like this, but we don't hesitate to do so, so everyone can be aware of what can happen.

POPIN Special to the Citizen F or three days in July of 1863, a village situated 118 miles southwest of Philadelphia experienced the largest battle on North American soil. Gettysburg is where more than 50,000 casualties occurred from July 1st to the 3rd. On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg to participate in the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg. He spoke for about two minutes, while a well known contemporary orator, Edward Everett spoke for almost two hours preceding Mr. Lincoln. Can you recite a part, or recall any of Mr. Everetts words this day? How many will recognize Mr. Everetts skill, or contributions as a legislator in service to this country? He was Americas most admired and distinguished orator. In contrast, Lincolns words are remembered, venerated and recited more often through the ages than almost any other speech to date. He captured the very mood of the time with very few words, effectively honoring not only the fallen soldiers and those who continue to serve, but as a leader he attempts to assure the people that the nation will survive this great civil war. He comprehends the challenges, and stands firm, defined and dedicated to the ultimate resolve.

There was a fourway tie for third place between Rae Stover, Joyce Madill, Maureen Casner and Charlotte Green. Rae Stover won the closest to the pin contest. On Nov. 10, prior to teeing off on the first hole, each person chose 3 holes they did not want to be counted in their game score. Since we played the back nine, the 3 holes to choose seemed obvious, but wouldnt you know that several ladies played one or more of those three very well. You should have seen the faces as they came back to the club house! Rae Stover was the winner in Flight A with Vange Bell second. Joan Scholl was the winner in Flight B and Ilene Simnowitz was second. Congratulations to Phyllis Oldfield for her birdie on #11!

The overall champions for each of the three tee designations received a plaque engraved with their name. These were Bud Murray, Emmet Dowling, and Virgil Hein. Congratulations to each of you for your stellar play. The rest of the winners and placers received prizes as well. Our thanks go to the tourney chairman John Terry, his able assistant Dick Rizzo, and to our professional Lori Wilkes who assisted in all the preparations and the scoring. The meal of meat loaf, beans, and mashed potatoes prepared by the Royal Oaks Dining was outstanding as always. In recognition of the fact that we were playing on Veterans Day we had a short session prior to the meal and awards. Former Marine Bob Gildea, who served in both World War II and Korea, gave a history of the Pledge of Allegiance and of Veterans Day. All present recited the pledge. Thanks Bob. It was refreshing to remember what the day and the flag stand for. Finally, dont forget to sign up for the December Ender Tournament to be held on Dec. 9. This will be our last 2011 event. It will be followed by the Closest To The Pin Shootout. Carol Anns CornerMr. Cody here. I told mom I wanted the opportunity to tell all my fellow Oak Runners about something she is is involved with to help my less fortunate feline brethren. Sheltering Hands is an organization that rescues cats that need help. Their most recent project is a program to trap, neuter and release feral cats to help bring Marion Countys cat population under control. The organization has received approval for this project from the County Commission. In order to fund their work Sheltering Hands has been having sales of used books, CDs videos and crafts at locations here on the 200 Corridor. The next sale will be at WinnDixie, 8445 S.W.

Friday, November 18, 2011 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, November 18, 2011 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen At Joy Lutheran Church every child is a winner! On Saturday, Nov. 12, the Flag Football players and cheerleaders were awarded their Certificates of Achievement in a ceremony conducted by the Rev. Edward Holloway, Jr., senior pastor. There were no scoreboards or competition in this program but just an opportunity to learn a skill, good sportsmanship and meet new friends. Pastor Ed asked the children, Who was the most valuable player? and all the kids raised their hands. There were more than 100 children and parents present for this event. Each child was individually called forward to receive their certificate, a DVD of the Big Story, and a new sports bag. The coaches and all the helpers who made the flag football season a success were thanked for their participation. Flag football awards presented at Joy Lutheran PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENUpward Flag Football season ends with a picnic following the award ceremony for all the participants at Joy Lutheran Church. Pastor Ed closed the ceremony with a song that he played on the banjo and had the children sing called This Little Light of Mine, which encourages them all to recognize their inner talents and strengths. He reminded all in attendance that Upward Sports is a national nondenominational program that encourages parents to raise up their children the best they can. He invited them to come back for the spring soccer program in which registration will start in January. Joy Lutheran Church is on Southwest State Road 200 at 83rd Place, Ocala.

Some people, however, only give this preventative in the warmer months, and some not at all. If youre taking chances with your dog like this, please be aware that the only approved medicine to treat this disease is currently unavailable across the country due to manufacturing issues. Veterinarians and shelters are making do with the supply they have, but once they run out, they will not be able to optimally treat your pet. This means that heartworm positive dogs in certain shelters may be put down instead of treated. In other types of shelters, these dogs may not be taken in. For veterinarians, it means that alternative care will be provided with the outcome uncertain. So here is a case where the proverbial ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Keep your dog on heartworm preventative all year round so this isnt an issue for you and your loving companion. SPCA NewsThe SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Were looking forward to seeing new faces as well as old friends, so please mark your calendar for those dates and come out and join us. Well let you know about our guest speakers in a future column. Anyone wishing to send us a donation by check can send it to: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at 352-362-0985 to find out more. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 Doggy Expo With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Herbert W. Silverman, MBA from New York Life Insurance Company held our first Doggy Expo at Petco last Saturday. With a perfect day for going outside, both people and dogs were delighted with a cornucopia of all the pet ideas including free advice from the Paddock Park Animal Center, adoptions from the Marion County Animal Services, tips from Petco about grooming and training and a doggy picture from New York Life Insurance Company. With volunteers from West Port High School National Honor Society and live remotes from Thunder 102.9 FM, everyone agreed it was terrific. What to do with rollover funds BY HERB SILVERMAN Special to the Citizen At some point, many people with retirement or employer-sponsored investment accounts will find themselves faced with the decision of what to do with rollover funds. This can happen when you change jobs and cash out a 401(k), or when you retire. In either case, it is important to think through your options. Ideally, its best to choose a strategy that meets your retirement needs, minimizes the impact of taxes and avoids penalties. Please note this is a general overview, and tax laws can be tricky, so be sure to talk to an accountant and/or tax attorney before making any financial decision. Roll It Over One possible option is to directly roll your entire distribution into a new Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or an employer-sponsored 401(k). Either one would allow you to continue to defer taxes and allow you to continue building your retirement savings for the future.Leave It Where It IsYou may want to keep funds in your employers plan until you reach the plans retirement age, if that is an option. This may be ideal if you want to take advantage of certain investment options or managed money services available in your existing plan. Your funds will remain tax-deferred and can later be moved to a new employers qualified plan or an IRA.Take the Taxable DistributionDepending on your situation, you may choose to withdraw the funds from your 401(k). Although you will have immediate access to your savings, there are a few things to consider when taking a lump-sum distribution. First, your money will no longer have the potential to grow tax-deferred and it will be subject to ordinary state and federal income taxes. Additionally, if you are under age 59, a 10 percent IRS penalty may apply. Please note: Rollovers must be completed no later than the 60th day after the day you receive the distribution.

S ome people have told us that they would love to have an animal as part of their lives, but they are not ready to commit full time to being a dog or cat parent. An alternative to adopting a pet that you will devote a lifetime of care for is to temporarily foster a needy little bundle of joy. At this time, the Animal Center desperately needs your help to foster their youngest kittens until they reach 2 lbs. When the kittens are very small, they need to be cared for in a separate room from the main cat adoption area. The best way for the kittens to thrive and reach that critical 2 lb. mark is to be raised in a home by a loving caregiver. Once the kitten reaches the ideal weight, you can return him to the Center where he will be placed for adoption with the other cats. At this time of year when many of us are looking for ways to do good and reach out to those in need in the community, this is a way for animal lovers to give back. So please if you have the time and desire to help, give the Animal Center a call at 352671-8700 and ask about the kitty foster program. Or you can go online to www.marioncountyfl.org/a nimal.htm and fill out a foster application. In addition to the kitty program, you can also foster a cat. Did you know that the Animal Center takes in upwards of 6,000 cats a year? Thats a formidable job for any facility and now you can help them give these cats and kittens the best care possible. Before we get to the dogs of the month, we want to let you know that the Animal Center is currently filled to the brim with wonderful dogs waiting to be adopted. So if youve been thinking about adopting, nows the time to go. Although we usually show you small and medium sized dogs each month, there are many large purebred and mixed breed dogs available, especially Labradors, hounds, and their mixes. If youre a large dog lover, or live on a farm, or have a moderate sized yard, or even access to a dog park please dont overlook the larger breeds as they are often the last ones to get adopted. Our first dog is Ray, the 6 year old beagle pictured here. Youll notice hes a little pudgy, so he needs you to help him whittle down to his once svelte figure. This very happy boy loves people and is a laid back sort of fellow whose idea of heaven is to sit and relax. He leaves all that toy playing to the energetic Jack Russells and such. Just think how much of a challenge it would be to find a toy or a game he likes, to get you both off the couch. You can only sit around so long, you know, so if its your mission to get some activity back into your life why not get active with Ray. Hell love you for it oh, you know hell love you anyway but itll do both your hearts good. Our next guy is Lenny, the 2 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. Lenny was found as a stray and brought to the Center. If youre the brainy type who likes their dogs smart, youve met your match in Lenny. Hes an intelligent soul whose favorite commands are sit, down, and paw. Were sure you can add to his bag of tricks. He also walks quite well on a leash, so hell be a pleasure to go about town with. When your neighbors get pulled down the street by their canine pals, you can chuckle to yourself knowing that Lenny is such a gentleman. Rays ID number is A059671 and Lennys is A060377. Please give Animal Services their ID numFoster parents needed for several young kittens ber when you call them at (352) 671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday.

The shoe boxes are then processed and prepared to be hand-delivered to children worldwide using whatever means necessary sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, helicopters, boats, elephants and dog sleds. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected 86 million shoe box gifts and hand-delivered them to impoverished children in more than 130 countries. This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 8.5 million gift-filled shoe boxes. In Ocala, were aiming to contribute 15,000 shoe box gifts, said Marlene Reuscher, volunteer area coordinator for Ocala. Its a big goal, but I believe we can reach it. Ocala kids realize that as tough as things are here in the United States, there are children around the world who have so much less. This small sacrifice can have lifelong impact on a needy child. Anyone can participate in Operation Christmas Child right now. National Collection Week is now until Monday. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, or to find the nearest drop-off site, call 352-629-6079 or visit www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology that allows donors to follow their shoe box to find out the destination country where it will be handdelivered to a child in need. Operation Christmas Child is a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritans Purse, headed by Franklin Graham.

Above, students from Hammett Bowen Elementary march in during the presentation of the colors. Juliana Oyola-Pabon and Trinity Hopkins of Hammett Bowen took turns reading tributes. Leeward Air Ranch War-birds made three passes over the park in a flyover. Hammett Bowen singers entertained the crowd with a patriotic song during the ceremony. Marie Kindler, a resident at The Bridge at Ocala, who has been at The Bridge a little over a year, celebrated her 102nd birthday on Wednesday, Nov. 16. She has one daughter, Evelyn. She was born in Hamburg, Germany, moved to the U.S. in 1928 when she was 18 years old. Marie lived with a very nice Jewish family. She attended school to learn English at night. She worked for the Jewish family in their home as the upstairs girl. She made the beds and cleaned the bathrooms. She met her husband at a dance. They dated four years before getting married. They remained married for 52 years. Marie and her husband owned apartment houses, about 70 apartments. She moved to Florida in 1971 to West Palm Beach and remained there until moving to Dunnellon in 2009. She credits her longevity to taking no medications and eating well; this comes from tiny Marie, who weighs about 90 pounds. Her favorite time of the day is every morning at 10 when she goes to play bingo.
