For more details, see the column on Page 16. Light Up Ocala Huge crowds gathered at the Downtown Square last Saturday for the annual Light Up Ocala event. There was plenty of food, a ferris wheel, a childrens parade punctuated with the arrival of Santa Claus, and bright lights galore. PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKCrowds were thrilled by the large tree, whose lights change color every few seconds. Santas sleigh was a bucket truck during the mid-afternoon childrens parade. No fear of heights for these people taking advantage of the ferris wheel during the big celebration. Juggler Bruce Safarian enjoyed playing with fire, much to the delight of the crowd. In an informational packet prepared for distribution to the Marion County Commission, problems associated with the new flyover being constructed were detailed. The flyover, or overpass, will connect the 31st Street Extension on the east side of Interstate 75 to the west side, going on 40th Avenue to State Road 200. It eventually will be part of a western bypass. The information sheet detailed problems, but was submitted for information only. There may be change orders in the future, however. According to the report: Work started with utility relocations on the west side of I-75 behind Berkshire Plaza, which has since been completed. Work on the east side of I-75 has included the installation of water and sewer line extensions for the City of Ocala. There were two change orders, both the responsibility of the city. Bridge pile installation on the east side began with the driving of a test pile which broke during installation. This circumstance resulted in changes by FDOT and a replacement test pile was then successfully driven. Of the remaining 19 piles driven on the east side, two more broke during installation and one was driven short which requires a splice. Work to replace the two broken piles will take place at a later date. The short pile needed to be over driven to meet refusal. Breaking of bridge piles is not a typical occurrence and it is one that requires close coordination by the contractor with both FDOT and the County. Cost for the 3 replacement piles at this time will be the responsibility of the Contractor. Work has now relocated to the west side of I-75 within its right of way. No action was expected from the commissioners. Flyover problems detailed to county December AARP Driver Safety ClassesAARP Driver Safety Classes are scheduled for four locations in Marion County during the month of December.

For more than 10 years, Marion County Fire Rescue firefighters have helped meet the needs of families struggling to eat, stay warm and bring joy home during the holiday season. As part of this annual effort, MCFR firefighters are asking the community to partner with their Holiday Helpers drive by donating clothing, toys or nonperishable food to underprivileged children this holiday season. From now until Friday, Dec. 16, MCFR will collect toys, jackets and other warm clothing for children of all ages (newborn to teen) as well as nonperishable food, giving families hope for the holidays. Crews will pre-identify the most vulnerable families with help from local schools. Citizens can drop off new and unwrapped items at MCFR Headquarters (2631 S.E. Third St., Ocala), MCFR Operations (3230 S.E. Maricamp Road, Ocala) or any of the countys 24 career fire stations listed below.

As the winter travel season approaches, the American Pharmacists Association encourages consumers to talk with their pharmacist about their medications before they pack their bags. This will help ensure each person knows the best way to pack their medications, what to do if the medication is lost and anything to be aware of with travel and the medication. The short conversation could save each person a lot of holiday trouble further down the road if they do not prepare correctly. Americans are known to travel a lot during the holiday and winter season. According to the Bureau of Transportation and Statistics, the number of long distance trips more than 50 miles just during the six-day Thanksgiving travel period, increases by 54 percent. Travel disrupts healthcare routines and the normal things consumers do to take care of themselves such as adhering to a medication regimen can sometimes fall from the top list of priorities. Here are some tips to help you maintain a healthy medication regime throughout the travel season: Organize a health kit that contains all of your prescription and over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals. Ensure you store medications correctly and pack ample medication and equipment. Some medications have special storage instructions or require specific dosing equipment. If you will be flying to your destination or crossing borders, always carry your medications in the original bottles in your carry-on luggage. Bring more medication than you expect to use. Talk to your pharmacist about the possibility of obtaining a medication vacation supply from your insurance company, he/she may be able to help. Being prepared for unexpected extended travel helps ensure safe and effective medication use. It is also good to know your insurance companys policy on medication transfers and replacement supplies if your medication is lost. Pack a Preventative Medicine Kit. Talk with your pharmacist about any over-the-counter medications you should pack for the area of the world you are traveling to or what you are planning to do. Basics include: anti-diarrhea, anti-nausea, antihistamine, anti-motion sickness, mild laxative or stool softener, medicine for pain or fever and antibacterial/antifungal cream/ointment. Get up-to-date on any vaccines you may need. Over the holiday season you will run into many people who could possibly be sick. Make sure to get your annual flu shot. If you are traveling overseas, make sure you have met all of the travel vaccine recommendations put out by the CDC. Beware of Drugged Driving. Certain medications can impair perception, judgment and reaction times causing a hazardous driving situation. Talk with your pharmacist about side effects your medication may cause and whether you can adjust your dosing schedule to avoid times you may need to operate a vehicle. Carry an updated personal medication and vaccination record with you. This is a list of your prescription, over-the-counter and herbal medications, how you take them, and why. This list should also contain an up-todate history of your vaccinations. If you are unexpectedly admitted into a hospital, or must see a healthcare provider while traveling, the list can help them understand your current treatments. To download a personal medication list www.pharmacist.com/pmr. Have a plan for adjusting your medication regimen. Travel may require you to adjust your medication regimen, or when you take your medication, for time and routine changes. If you are traveling across the country and would normally take a medication twice a day, for example, you may need to adjust that schedule to take your medications approximately twelve hours apart which may be earlier or later than your first bedtime or morning on another coast. Ask your pharmacist about how to alter your schedule to fit your health-care needs. Be careful or avoid drinking alcohol, especially when flying or visiting cities in higher altitudes. Alcohol can interact with many prescription and over-the-counter medicines. Ask your pharmacist if there are any foods or beverages that conflict with your medicines. You may be more inclined to eat unfamiliar foods when traveling to new cities or foreign countries. Practice good hygiene, get rest and eat well. Frequent hand-washing/cleansing, use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer and coughing /sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue will protect you and others. In addition, try not to overdo it and not get run down, eat right and drink plenty of water (and depending upon the location you may need to use bottled water) are good practices that can reduce your risk of getting sick. About the American Pharmacists Association The American Pharmacists Association, founded in 1852 as the American Pharmaceutical Association, is a 501 (c)(6) organization, representing more than 62,000 practicing pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, student pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and others interested in advancing the profession. APhA, dedicated to helping all pharmacists improve medication use and advance patient care, is the first-established and largest association of pharmacists in the United States.

Friday, November 25, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T here has been a cutesy cartoon message on television lately, showing billions of dollars being siphoned from the Postal Service into the Federal Treasury. The ad is part of a campaign by the postal employees union to keep the Postal Service alive and preserve their pay, pensions, and benefits into the unforeseeable future. The campaign contends leaving billions of employee benefit contributions with the Postal Service would help offset its annual deficits. The message doesnt consider from what pocket future pension and health benefits will be paid if prepayments are discontinued. As with many things in Washington, foresight is not encouraged. Postal Service management has suggested that Congress eliminate collective bargaining, allow the Service to run its own health care plan, terminate 200,000 employees by attrition or layoffs, discontinue Saturday deliveries and close half of their present facilities. At the same time Congress has been considering plans to restructure the Postal Service, because it may run out of money before the end of 2012. One part of the proposed overhaul would be a refund of seven billion dollars of overpayments from the federal retirement system to the Postal Service. In addition to refunding overpayments the proposed legislation suggests reform of workers compensation and health care. Well believe that when it happens. Postal Service finances are another example of Washingtons unwillingness to confront significant problems before they become crises. Its another exercise of spendnow and worry-later, the philosophy which spawned our present deficits and financial difficulties. In addition to our rapidly increasing national debt, Washington is sitting on a powder keg of other promises which may become crises in the not distant future. One example is the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC), which announced recently a 2011 deficit of $26 billion. PBGC has $107 billion of current obligations and assets of only $81 billion. By now everyone knows Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid will continue to cost more each year than the funding received to pay for them. To pay back the billions of dollars the Congress borrowed and spent over the past 30 years, Treasury will have to borrow and add to the national debt. If continued indefinitely the deficits from those three programs alone will add 40 to 60 trillion dollars to the national debt. Congress and a succession of administrations have been aware that the federal government has made more promises than there will be income to pay for them. They also know there are three available remedies additional borrowing, restructuring benefits, and raising taxes. Washington politicians find one or more of those remedies unpalatable, as evidenced by the congressional super committees three-month deadlock. However, nobody seemed alarmed when the national debt passed 15 trillion dollars while the committee was struggling. Too many of our politicians see the nations financial problems as a personal choice between duck and hide or risk political suicide. Courageous leadership is not a fourth alternative. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 25, 2011 T here were a couple of anniversaries this week that meant a lot to me, one of national significance and the other of a personal nature. On Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, by Lee Harvey Oswald. I rarely let this anniversary go by without commenting on it. For those who didnt live through those times, its hard to grasp the significance of that event. I graduated from high school in 1961 (thats right, 50 years ago), and before that was brought up in a time of good feeling and prosperity. I was born during World War II, and was barely old enough to realize what was happening when Korea broke out. The rest of the 1950s was spent just being a kid, playing a lot of sports, putting a nickel in a juke box at the local drug store every now and then and just having an enjoyable time. High school came along late in the decade, and by 1960s elections I was a senior. I remember in a class I was taking called Problems of American Democracy, that the teacher told us the next day after Kennedy won that he didnt want to hear any more of the griping that there was going to be a war. Turned out he was wrong, and we were right about Vietnam. Ironically, it was a Catholic school, but while some in the country predicted dire consequences if a Catholic were elected, those of us in our high school were actually ahead of the adults in this. We were more concerned with his politics than his religion. The peaceful times, however, continued until November 1963. I was working at a book publishing firm, a big one, and I remember suddenly being startled when the National Anthem was played from the paging system with no warning and it was rather loud. Within a few minutes we were listening to a radio broadcast telling us that Kennedy had been shot and killed. In those few seconds, our innocence was shattered. Not only were we exposed to violence on our shores, but it was seen on television, and two days later we got to see Jack Ruby kill Lee Harvey Oswald live. Nothing was ever the same. Within a few years we had riots in the streets protesting the war, which was the first one in which we saw the fighting on the tube in our living rooms. Lyndon Johnson decided not to run again in 1968, Richard Nixon was elected, and we all know how well that went. People who didnt live through the 1950s cant imagine why those people my age reminisce so much, why nostalgia television does so well, etc. We know what they havent needed to grasp, that those days are gone forever. As for that personal anniversary, the day after Kennedy was shot I went on a date, the first time with this young lady I met in the company bowling league. We were going to go bowling, but ended up at a movie instead, because the bowling lanes were closed in honor of JFK. I guess the date went all right, because 48 years later, here we are having four children and a dozen or so grandchildren over for Thanksgiving this week. Every now and then, though, I wonder what kind of world we would be living in if Lee Harvey Oswald hadnt pulled that trigger. Guess well never know.

F ormer University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, now the signal-caller for the Denver Broncos, has become a strange sort of folk hero over the past few weeks. It all started with his comeback victory over the Miami Dolphins. As the game ended, Tebow dropped to a knee in apparent prayer. It didnt take long, within a few moments he was celebrating with his teammates. Even last Thursday, when he led a late-game, latenight comeback against the New York Jets, he took a moment to pause and pray. While those actions have produced backing from many individuals, they also have attracted ridicule from others. There are mocking imitations of him in that pose out there. One thing a lot of these people ought to learn is that you shouldnt mock someones religious beliefs. Both sides can cite examples from the Bible. On one hand, there are many references to people going out and spreading the news to all nations, letting people know who they are and what they believe, and setting good examples. There are others, of course, who point to a parable of the Pharisee and the Publican, pointing out that the one who stood in the front of the church saying how good he was will not be rewarded as well as the one who stood quietly in the back of the church not drawing attention to himself. Americans, and particularly football fans, can choose which tale to follow and how they will react to others. What Tebow does, in our opinion, is a lot better than some of these ridiculous dances and celebrations that players use to draw attention to themselves after they score a touchdown. The fact that a player wants to spend a quiet moment with his God should be refreshing, not a matter for mockery. On this Thanksgiving weekend, we should be thankful that we live in a country that allows different ways of thinking, and a country that allows someone to pray without fear of retribution. In many places of the world, open display of religion, other than that which is statesponsored, can result in death. So the next time you see Tim Tebow pause a moment for some prayer, take a pause yourself and think about what he is doing. Then tell the naysayers to go pick on someone else.

Its a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. Even with all of the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be thankful for. Its important to be grateful, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by developing an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be thankful for. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about, then you are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future shouldnt diminish appreciation for the present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you wont enjoy today. Dont be jealous of others; what they do or have has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from your life, things arent going your way, or you have been treated unfairly. You may wonder, Why do these things always happen to me? Lifes problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those who appear to be better off. Youre apt to dwell on things you think would make your life better if you had them. If only you had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a different job, a different boss, had picked a different career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resentful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their mental and physical health decays. Its difficult, if not impossible, to achieve your goals while you are bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges might befall you, bitterness makes finding solutions much more elusive. There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving out negative feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try missing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life. If it helps, make a written list of all things you are grateful for. Read your list every day. As you do this, you will build and reinforce your attitude of gratitude. Dont waste any time with what you feel you dont have. Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Dont be consumed by your problems, there is always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for your circumstances. Make every day a day of Thanksgiving and you will be amazed how much better your life will become. Bryan Golden is a self-development expert, syndicated columnist, and professor.

GUEST COLUMN Thanksgiving should be every day LETTERS TO THE EDITOR If my peopleIf we take an honest look at America today, it is obvious we are at a crossroads which will determine our future as a great nation. Our republic form of government, our capitalistic system, our economy, our love of freedom, and the very moral fiber of America is under attack. This is painfully demonstrated by the so called one percent mobs and the signs and messages they support. They dont understand we are a nation of individual responsibility, a land of opportunity, not a land of handouts and guarantees. Even worse is the very real attempt to remove God from our culture, our way of life. There was a recent study that revealed the illegitimacy rate for new born babies in the 60s was three percent. We enjoyed a time when children came home to both a mom and dad, where the family was the backbone of our society. Now we have the illegitimacy rate at 60 percent or better with single moms being the rule rather than the exception. Many babies will never even know the identity of their fathers, and their families are expecting taxpayers to support them. There are obvious exceptions to this situation, but facts show the majority end up depending on government welfare programs. Too many men do not pay for the childs support, and this is a disgrace. Many good citizens now believe we have gone too far in this wrong direction for America to survive, and we undoubtedly have if we depend on politicians of any party to heal this great land of ours. The answer instead is very simple, to again put our complete trust in God, our creator. This answer is found in Gods word, Gods promise to his people as follows: If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; Then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. What a promise! The wonderful realization of this promise is that God doesnt expect this from the non-believer, as He knows that His word is foolishness to them. The other side of the coin is what the consequences will be if believers dont do this! Our future is in Gods hands and this fact/His promise should get all of His people down on our knees to pray for God to bless and heal America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Thanksgiving I want to thank Judi Siegal for writing the lovely article reminding all of us that Thanksgiving is a unique time in our history when all Judeo Christians share not only our tied religions and our American culture. It is a time to remember why our ancestors arrived on these shores, its a time to remember the European persecutions of both religions. Yes both religions wanted to be free to practice their faith. Americans until recently enjoyed just that, but sadly the Constitution is being shredded, Anti-Semitism is on the rise and Christianity is once again under attract. The last 60 years we have allowed the evil among us, the progressives to chip away at these freedoms. Our national day of prayer is no more, and for the first time in over 200 years there will be no Christmas celebration at the White House. How sad for the country that was built on these very traditions. I for one want my Constitution, my religious freedoms and my cherished PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 I n elementary school Lou C. Lynchs teacher calls out his full name which to his classmates sounds like Lucy and the humiliating name sticks. Lucy grows up to be a good man if to the world he is quite ordinary, a hard worker but not clever or articulate. No one sees that he is perceptive and highly intelligent. Misunderstood at an early age, Lucy laments, Ive always known that theres more going on inside me than finds its way into the world, but this is probably true of everyone. Who doesnt regret that he isnt more fully understood? To that end in middle age he starts his memoir to set the record straight. In Bridge of Sighs, Richard Russos expansive portrait of a fraying small town, among his solid citizens, like Lucy, love fades, quotidian responsibilities overwhelm the youthful passions that made life worth living, and eventually they all make compromises with reality. In this multi-generational novel, characters physically run away like childhood friend Bobby Noonan and his mother or mentally escape like Lucys wife Sarah. A touching moment occurs after Lucys father Lou dies. Lucy had always identified with his father, secretly resenting his mother Tessas strength that highlighted his fathers ineptitude. Tessa confesses in tears, I never wanted you not to love your father. I wanted you to love me. Did it ever occur to you even once in all those The story of a young man named Lucy B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington years that you might have taken my side? Tessa is a remarkable character whose unfinished sentences say everything about her smothered dreams. Recurrent themes throughout this novel are these: People grow up but never change; we never really know our parents; women marry the good guys but yearn for the rascals. Although I have issues with the editors for not trimming this book by at least 100 pages, I have nothing but praise for the contents. Russo endows his humble protagonist with a certain nobility and the pitch-perfect details make Bridge of Sighs a memorable read.

They wouldnt let me buy anything specific. Silver transformerA family from the forest was visiting a huge mall in Orlando the first time in their lives. The father and son were strolling around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, Paw, whats that? The father responded, Son, I dunno. I aint never seen nothin like that in my whole life. While the boy and his father were watching, an ugly fat woman waddled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the woman entered between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular number above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached a high number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Then the walls opened up again and a gorgeous, voluptuous 24 year-old blond woman stepped out. The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son, Boy, go git your Momma!Watch It!A blonde went to an appliance store sale and found a bargain. I would like to buy this TV, she told the salesman. Sorry, we dont sell to blondes, he replied. The blonde was very angry with this. She hurried home and dyed her hair, then came back and again told the salesman, I would like to buy this TV. Sorry, we dont sell to blondes, he replied. The blonde did not know how the salesman had recognized her. This time, she got a haircut and new color, a new outfit and big sunglasses. She then waited a few days before she approached the salesman. I would like to buy this TV. Sorry, we dont sell to blondes, he replied. Frustrated, she exclaimed, How do you know Im a blonde? Because thats a microwave, he replied. Actually buying a microware is not a bad idea. Theyre cheaper than TVs and you can see whats cooking many times more interesting than the garbage we get on TV.

T wenty-four hours ago, I was seated with my family and friends around the Thanksgiving table. Now, I am seated in my chair and cannot move. I wont say I ate too much yesterday. I did, I just wont say it. Why is it on Thanksgiving we give ourselves permission to gorge ourselves to the point of semi-consciousness? The difference between consciousness and semi-consciousness is that with semi-consciousness you feel like you have been run over by a semitruck. Of course, a great thing about Thanksgiving is the fabulous dinner spread, surrounded by family and friends. It is truly a time to give thanks to God for the manifold blessings he has showered on us throughout the year. Although there have been a few drought times during the past year, Gods showers of blessing always came at the right time. Thanksgiving Day is for the diet-challenged person. Nothing is more challenging to me than my diet. And of this in particular I am most grateful for Thanksgiving. It is the one day of the year I can toss caution to the wind (which is the only exercise I get on Thanksgiving) and forget my diet carefully supervised by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It is not that I take advantage of the situation OK, so I do take advantage of the situation. However, that is the glorious aspect of holidays like Thanksgiving. The person, me in particular, can get away with things that the rest of the year would be impossible. And Im not just thinking of that second piece of pumpkin pie. The second great thing about Thanksgiving is the day after. The business community refers to this day as Black Friday. They mean, of course, it is a day when they turn their ledger from red to black. Whoever invented the shopping frenzy associated with the day after Thanksgiving should be congratulated and offered the Nobel Peace Prize. Black Friday in our home is when my wife and our daughters leave the house early in the morning to spend the entire day shopping and I get the opportunity to black out for the entire day. If I may say so, it is a glorious day of loafing. The feast like we usually have on Thanksgiving Day requires at least one full day of concentrating and allowing the meal to digest, no matter how long it takes. The older I get the longer it takes my digestive system to complete its work. My philosophy is, dont rush the process. Im all for cooperation. I believe this world would get along much better if everybody would just cooperate. I set the example by cooperating with my digestive system for the entire day. I have found the best way to assist my digestive system is to spend the day loafing. And I have managed to bring loafing to a finely developed art. It has taken years for me to get to this point of expertise. Throughout the years, I have developed the finesse associated with total loafing that should be recorded somewhere. My expertise in this area is most remarkable for the simple fact that I only get to practice this one day out of the year. I can assure you that one day is intensely devoted to the strenuous activity of loafing. If you promise not to let this get back to you know who, I do get in an odd day every now and again to practice for this day. Nobody can reach the pinnacle of success I have on this matter without some kind of practice throughout the year. I am completely devoted to my art, as any other artist would be. In case someone gets the wrong idea about all of this, let me assure you that loafing has certain health benefits. Of course, if I am caught practicing my loafing when my wife has instructed me to do some things around the house, it has an adverse effect on my health. The key here is to practice loafing when your wife is out of the house shopping the entire day, which is why Black Friday was invented. It is a proven fact that most of the people in our country today are overworked and totally stressed out by their lives. In spite of all the technology available to us, we are a nation that has forgotten how to rest. Years ago in our country, when we were more Christian than we are today, we set aside Sunday as the day of rest. That has completely gone by the wayside as we became a culture of 24/7 activity. The only solution all our experts have come up with is to pop a pill and keep on going. A friend of mine has a marvelous saying, Either come apart and rest a while, or you will simply come apart. I like that. Jesus said something similar. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.) We have learned how to feast and our buffet table is loaded with goodies. Perhaps it would be a good time to take some time to rest and let our soul settle and digest the rich blessings of God.

RELIGION T oday, the day after Thanksgiving, is called Black Friday when many vendors want to get out of the red and into the black. They hope the recession will really end with a frenzied activity of shoppers at many different stores, starting from early morning to late in the day. The Black Friday tradition was actually started by the pilgrims when they celebrated by getting in their boat and cruising up and down the coastline in what has come to be called The After Thanksgiving Day Sail. Carrying on this tradition, Pun Alley gives you some two-bit puns and bargain basement stories. Shopaholic aliens Scientists have announced that they observed a planet entirely covered by one gigantic shopping center. The skeptical scientists didnt believe it at first, but theyve now confirmed that its a mall world after all.No shopping A boy accompanied his aunt to the mall to do some shopping after picking up her pay at her nearby place of work. While they were in the mall parking lot, a purse-snatcher ran up, grabbed her purse and disappeared between the cars. The boy spotted a mall security guard and ran up to him and said, Somebody stole my aunts pay! The security guard looked the boy up and down and said, Cut out the foolish Pig-Latin and tell me what really happened. Eighty percent offThe lingerie storeowner was having security problems because women were stealing underwear in the dressing rooms. He installed cameras in there. Hes still getting ripped off, but makes it all back on the video sales. Five and dime Once youve seen one shopping center youve seen a mall. Some coffee shops have the grounds to operate in the black. The shoplifter at the lingerie shop gave police the slip. It makes no difference what it is; a woman will buy anything she thinks the store is losing money on. Biology is the study of shopping habits. The one-armed man shopped at a second hand store.

He told how he came to Silver Springs in 1938 on a stopover from a planned trip to Miami. He described the early underwater housings he invented and told how he wore a divers helmet to use them. The 35 famous photos he displayed included the one he said made Jayne Mansfield famous. Mozert said that actor Lloyd Bridges was a perfect gentleman and very good to work with. He had other choice words for unnamed actors who were at the other extreme. He, implying that Esther Williams enjoyed martinis too much, said that she was amazing in how red eyed she could get at night and still be beautiful the next morning. He described going 2,000 miles up the Amazon on a photo shoot, swimming with piranhas (they wont hurt you if there is no blood in the water) and walking on a bridge cable over one of New Yorks rivers. He still flies airplanes but only rented planes today; he has owned five or six aircraft. He did his latest aerial photography just a month or so ago. His talk included talking about hand coloring prints with dye before color film was introduced. This is a dying art that he continues to use today for turning brown grass green and other artistic effects. In response to a question, he said he uses digital cameras today and has $45,000 worth of useless film equipment. regular ticket sale hours. Tickets will be available to the general public the week before the concert in the Activities Office, as well as at the door. Holiday Food Drive updateOur annual holiday food drive continues through Dec. 6. Food drive coordinator Gloria Wilberg reported that since Mary Ann Hall began monthly food drives for Interfaith in April, and including this holiday food drive, Marion Landing residents have donated more than 1,200 pounds of food to help the area needy. Were hoping to reach one ton of food (donated) this year, said Gloria. Almost any unopened food item not requiring refrigeration is welcome, such as canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter. Plastic containers are preferred. Hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are needed, too. Over the next month, lets do our best to reach this goal and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes. All donations are accepted. Harvest Basket classTheres still time to sign up for the basket weaving class on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 9 a.m. Learn how to make this beautiful basket in just one day under the direction of master weaver Sharon Baiardi. A sample of the basket is located in the Activities Office; please sign up on the sheet attached to the flyer hanging on the Activity Wall if you are interested. Murder Mystery SolvedThe date was Nov. 6; the time: 5 p.m.; the victim: Pepi Roni. Was there motive? Was there means? Was there opportunity? The audience had to find out who the unknown assailant was, and it was a case of mistaken identity at the Murder Mystery Dinner presented by the Sunshine Committee. The victim, Pepi Roni, twin brother of Marco Roni, was murdered in his brothers place. The plot thickened with many clues and accusations, but the murderer was finally discovered. It was Bo Jalais, played by Jim Adwell. While they sorted through the tangled web woven by a very interesting cast of characters, the audience enjoyed an Italian dinner at Raffoneys Restaurante (aka: the Lifestyle Center) catered by My Sons Catering. Gordon Herrick was the Maitre d along with the rest of the cast: Carol Mock as Mama Rosa; Jim Pohlers as Rocco Scarfazzi; Frank Szutar as Marco Roni; Paula Adwell as Angel Roni; Jim Adwell as Bo Jalais; Fran Szutar as Tara Misu; Betty Kraus as Clair Voyant; Bob Fink as Father Al Fredo; and Rich Toneske as Chief Bubba Toneske. The dinner portion of the evening was organized by Joan Ritter and Janice Wood, and numerous members of the Sunshine Committee assisted with serving the meal, selling tickets, setting up and cleaning up after the program. Another fabulous job well done by all.

Famed underwater photographer Bruce Mozert enthralled Oak Run Photography Club members and guests with tales from 75 years of photography. He told how he came to Silver Springs in 1938 on a stopover from a planned trip to Miami. He described the early underwater housings he invented and told how he wore a divers helmet to use them. The 35 famous photos he displayed included the one he said made Jayne Mansfield famous. Mozert said that actor Lloyd Bridges was a perfect gentleman and very good to work with. He had other choice words for unnamed actors who were at the other extreme. He, implying that Esther Williams enjoyed martinis too much, said that she was amazing in how red eyed she could get at night and still be beautiful the next morning. He described going 2,000 miles up the Amazon on a photo shoot, swimming with piranhas (they wont hurt you if there is no blood in the water) and walking on a bridge cable over one of New Yorks rivers. He still flies airplanes but only rented planes today; he has owned five or six aircraft. He did his latest aerial photography just a month or so ago. His talk included talking about hand coloring prints with dye before color film was introduced. This is a dying art that he continues to use today for turning brown grass green and other artistic effects. In response to a question, he said he uses digital cameras today and has $45,000 worth of useless film equipment. regular ticket sale hours. Tickets will be available to the general public the week before the concert in the Activities Office, as well as at the door. Holiday Food Drive updateOur annual holiday food drive continues through Dec. 6. Food drive coordinator Gloria Wilberg reported that since Mary Ann Hall began monthly food drives for Interfaith in April, and including this holiday food drive, Marion Landing residents have donated more than 1,200 pounds of food to help the area needy. Were hoping to reach one ton of food (donated) this year, said Gloria. Almost any unopened food item not requiring refrigeration is welcome, such as canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter. Plastic containers are preferred. Hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are needed, too. Over the next month, lets do our best to reach this goal and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes. All donations are accepted. Harvest Basket classTheres still time to sign up for the basket weaving class on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 9 a.m. Learn how to make this beautiful basket in just one day under the direction of master weaver Sharon Baiardi. A sample of the basket is located in the Activities Office; please sign up on the sheet attached to the flyer hanging on the Activity Wall if you are interested. Murder Mystery SolvedThe date was Nov. 6; the time: 5 p.m.; the victim: Pepi Roni. Was there motive? Was there means? Was there opportunity? The audience had to find out who the unknown assailant was, and it was a case of mistaken identity at the Murder Mystery Dinner presented by the Sunshine Committee. The victim, Pepi Roni, twin brother of Marco Roni, was murdered in his brothers place. The plot thickened with many clues and accusations, but the murderer was finally discovered. It was Bo Jalais, played by Jim Adwell. While they sorted through the tangled web woven by a very interesting cast of characters, the audience enjoyed an Italian dinner at Raffoneys Restaurante (aka: the Lifestyle Center) catered by My Sons Catering. Gordon Herrick was the Maitre d along with the rest of the cast: Carol Mock as Mama Rosa; Jim Pohlers as Rocco Scarfazzi; Frank Szutar as Marco Roni; Paula Adwell as Angel Roni; Jim Adwell as Bo Jalais; Fran Szutar as Tara Misu; Betty Kraus as Clair Voyant; Bob Fink as Father Al Fredo; and Rich Toneske as Chief Bubba Toneske. The dinner portion of the evening was organized by Joan Ritter and Janice Wood, and numerous members of the Sunshine Committee assisted with serving the meal, selling tickets, setting up and cleaning up after the program. Another fabulous job well done by all.

RELIGION T oday, the day after Thanksgiving, is called Black Friday when many vendors want to get out of the red and into the black. They hope the recession will really end with a frenzied activity of shoppers at many different stores, starting from early morning to late in the day. The Black Friday tradition was actually started by the pilgrims when they celebrated by getting in their boat and cruising up and down the coastline in what has come to be called The After Thanksgiving Day Sail. Carrying on this tradition, Pun Alley gives you some two-bit puns and bargain basement stories. Shopaholic aliens Scientists have announced that they observed a planet entirely covered by one gigantic shopping center. The skeptical scientists didnt believe it at first, but theyve now confirmed that its a mall world after all.No shopping A boy accompanied his aunt to the mall to do some shopping after picking up her pay at her nearby place of work. While they were in the mall parking lot, a purse-snatcher ran up, grabbed her purse and disappeared between the cars. The boy spotted a mall security guard and ran up to him and said, Somebody stole my aunts pay! The security guard looked the boy up and down and said, Cut out the foolish Pig-Latin and tell me what really happened. Eighty percent offThe lingerie storeowner was having security problems because women were stealing underwear in the dressing rooms. He installed cameras in there. Hes still getting ripped off, but makes it all back on the video sales. Five and dime Once youve seen one shopping center youve seen a mall. Some coffee shops have the grounds to operate in the black. The shoplifter at the lingerie shop gave police the slip. It makes no difference what it is; a woman will buy anything she thinks the store is losing money on. Biology is the study of shopping habits. The one-armed man shopped at a second hand store.

T wenty-four hours ago, I was seated with my family and friends around the Thanksgiving table. Now, I am seated in my chair and cannot move. I wont say I ate too much yesterday. I did, I just wont say it. Why is it on Thanksgiving we give ourselves permission to gorge ourselves to the point of semi-consciousness? The difference between consciousness and semi-consciousness is that with semi-consciousness you feel like you have been run over by a semitruck. Of course, a great thing about Thanksgiving is the fabulous dinner spread, surrounded by family and friends. It is truly a time to give thanks to God for the manifold blessings he has showered on us throughout the year. Although there have been a few drought times during the past year, Gods showers of blessing always came at the right time. Thanksgiving Day is for the diet-challenged person. Nothing is more challenging to me than my diet. And of this in particular I am most grateful for Thanksgiving. It is the one day of the year I can toss caution to the wind (which is the only exercise I get on Thanksgiving) and forget my diet carefully supervised by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It is not that I take advantage of the situation OK, so I do take advantage of the situation. However, that is the glorious aspect of holidays like Thanksgiving. The person, me in particular, can get away with things that the rest of the year would be impossible. And Im not just thinking of that second piece of pumpkin pie. The second great thing about Thanksgiving is the day after. The business community refers to this day as Black Friday. They mean, of course, it is a day when they turn their ledger from red to black. Whoever invented the shopping frenzy associated with the day after Thanksgiving should be congratulated and offered the Nobel Peace Prize. Black Friday in our home is when my wife and our daughters leave the house early in the morning to spend the entire day shopping and I get the opportunity to black out for the entire day. If I may say so, it is a glorious day of loafing. The feast like we usually have on Thanksgiving Day requires at least one full day of concentrating and allowing the meal to digest, no matter how long it takes. The older I get the longer it takes my digestive system to complete its work. My philosophy is, dont rush the process. Im all for cooperation. I believe this world would get along much better if everybody would just cooperate. I set the example by cooperating with my digestive system for the entire day. I have found the best way to assist my digestive system is to spend the day loafing. And I have managed to bring loafing to a finely developed art. It has taken years for me to get to this point of expertise. Throughout the years, I have developed the finesse associated with total loafing that should be recorded somewhere. My expertise in this area is most remarkable for the simple fact that I only get to practice this one day out of the year. I can assure you that one day is intensely devoted to the strenuous activity of loafing. If you promise not to let this get back to you know who, I do get in an odd day every now and again to practice for this day. Nobody can reach the pinnacle of success I have on this matter without some kind of practice throughout the year. I am completely devoted to my art, as any other artist would be. In case someone gets the wrong idea about all of this, let me assure you that loafing has certain health benefits. Of course, if I am caught practicing my loafing when my wife has instructed me to do some things around the house, it has an adverse effect on my health. The key here is to practice loafing when your wife is out of the house shopping the entire day, which is why Black Friday was invented. It is a proven fact that most of the people in our country today are overworked and totally stressed out by their lives. In spite of all the technology available to us, we are a nation that has forgotten how to rest. Years ago in our country, when we were more Christian than we are today, we set aside Sunday as the day of rest. That has completely gone by the wayside as we became a culture of 24/7 activity. The only solution all our experts have come up with is to pop a pill and keep on going. A friend of mine has a marvelous saying, Either come apart and rest a while, or you will simply come apart. I like that. Jesus said something similar. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.) We have learned how to feast and our buffet table is loaded with goodies. Perhaps it would be a good time to take some time to rest and let our soul settle and digest the rich blessings of God.

They wouldnt let me buy anything specific. Silver transformerA family from the forest was visiting a huge mall in Orlando the first time in their lives. The father and son were strolling around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, Paw, whats that? The father responded, Son, I dunno. I aint never seen nothin like that in my whole life. While the boy and his father were watching, an ugly fat woman waddled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the woman entered between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular number above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached a high number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Then the walls opened up again and a gorgeous, voluptuous 24 year-old blond woman stepped out. The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son, Boy, go git your Momma!Watch It!A blonde went to an appliance store sale and found a bargain. I would like to buy this TV, she told the salesman. Sorry, we dont sell to blondes, he replied. The blonde was very angry with this. She hurried home and dyed her hair, then came back and again told the salesman, I would like to buy this TV. Sorry, we dont sell to blondes, he replied. The blonde did not know how the salesman had recognized her. This time, she got a haircut and new color, a new outfit and big sunglasses. She then waited a few days before she approached the salesman. I would like to buy this TV. Sorry, we dont sell to blondes, he replied. Frustrated, she exclaimed, How do you know Im a blonde? Because thats a microwave, he replied. Actually buying a microware is not a bad idea. Theyre cheaper than TVs and you can see whats cooking many times more interesting than the garbage we get on TV.

Its a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. Even with all of the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be thankful for. Its important to be grateful, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by developing an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be thankful for. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about, then you are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future shouldnt diminish appreciation for the present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you wont enjoy today. Dont be jealous of others; what they do or have has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from your life, things arent going your way, or you have been treated unfairly. You may wonder, Why do these things always happen to me? Lifes problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those who appear to be better off. Youre apt to dwell on things you think would make your life better if you had them. If only you had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a different job, a different boss, had picked a different career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resentful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their mental and physical health decays. Its difficult, if not impossible, to achieve your goals while you are bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges might befall you, bitterness makes finding solutions much more elusive. There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving out negative feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try missing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life. If it helps, make a written list of all things you are grateful for. Read your list every day. As you do this, you will build and reinforce your attitude of gratitude. Dont waste any time with what you feel you dont have. Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Dont be consumed by your problems, there is always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for your circumstances. Make every day a day of Thanksgiving and you will be amazed how much better your life will become. Bryan Golden is a self-development expert, syndicated columnist, and professor.

GUEST COLUMN Thanksgiving should be every day LETTERS TO THE EDITOR If my peopleIf we take an honest look at America today, it is obvious we are at a crossroads which will determine our future as a great nation. Our republic form of government, our capitalistic system, our economy, our love of freedom, and the very moral fiber of America is under attack. This is painfully demonstrated by the so called one percent mobs and the signs and messages they support. They dont understand we are a nation of individual responsibility, a land of opportunity, not a land of handouts and guarantees. Even worse is the very real attempt to remove God from our culture, our way of life. There was a recent study that revealed the illegitimacy rate for new born babies in the 60s was three percent. We enjoyed a time when children came home to both a mom and dad, where the family was the backbone of our society. Now we have the illegitimacy rate at 60 percent or better with single moms being the rule rather than the exception. Many babies will never even know the identity of their fathers, and their families are expecting taxpayers to support them. There are obvious exceptions to this situation, but facts show the majority end up depending on government welfare programs. Too many men do not pay for the childs support, and this is a disgrace. Many good citizens now believe we have gone too far in this wrong direction for America to survive, and we undoubtedly have if we depend on politicians of any party to heal this great land of ours. The answer instead is very simple, to again put our complete trust in God, our creator. This answer is found in Gods word, Gods promise to his people as follows: If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; Then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. What a promise! The wonderful realization of this promise is that God doesnt expect this from the non-believer, as He knows that His word is foolishness to them. The other side of the coin is what the consequences will be if believers dont do this! Our future is in Gods hands and this fact/His promise should get all of His people down on our knees to pray for God to bless and heal America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Thanksgiving I want to thank Judi Siegal for writing the lovely article reminding all of us that Thanksgiving is a unique time in our history when all Judeo Christians share not only our tied religions and our American culture. It is a time to remember why our ancestors arrived on these shores, its a time to remember the European persecutions of both religions. Yes both religions wanted to be free to practice their faith. Americans until recently enjoyed just that, but sadly the Constitution is being shredded, Anti-Semitism is on the rise and Christianity is once again under attract. The last 60 years we have allowed the evil among us, the progressives to chip away at these freedoms. Our national day of prayer is no more, and for the first time in over 200 years there will be no Christmas celebration at the White House. How sad for the country that was built on these very traditions. I for one want my Constitution, my religious freedoms and my cherished PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 I n elementary school Lou C. Lynchs teacher calls out his full name which to his classmates sounds like Lucy and the humiliating name sticks. Lucy grows up to be a good man if to the world he is quite ordinary, a hard worker but not clever or articulate. No one sees that he is perceptive and highly intelligent. Misunderstood at an early age, Lucy laments, Ive always known that theres more going on inside me than finds its way into the world, but this is probably true of everyone. Who doesnt regret that he isnt more fully understood? To that end in middle age he starts his memoir to set the record straight. In Bridge of Sighs, Richard Russos expansive portrait of a fraying small town, among his solid citizens, like Lucy, love fades, quotidian responsibilities overwhelm the youthful passions that made life worth living, and eventually they all make compromises with reality. In this multi-generational novel, characters physically run away like childhood friend Bobby Noonan and his mother or mentally escape like Lucys wife Sarah. A touching moment occurs after Lucys father Lou dies. Lucy had always identified with his father, secretly resenting his mother Tessas strength that highlighted his fathers ineptitude. Tessa confesses in tears, I never wanted you not to love your father. I wanted you to love me. Did it ever occur to you even once in all those The story of a young man named Lucy B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington years that you might have taken my side? Tessa is a remarkable character whose unfinished sentences say everything about her smothered dreams. Recurrent themes throughout this novel are these: People grow up but never change; we never really know our parents; women marry the good guys but yearn for the rascals. Although I have issues with the editors for not trimming this book by at least 100 pages, I have nothing but praise for the contents. Russo endows his humble protagonist with a certain nobility and the pitch-perfect details make Bridge of Sighs a memorable read.

Friday, November 25, 2011 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com T here has been a cutesy cartoon message on television lately, showing billions of dollars being siphoned from the Postal Service into the Federal Treasury. The ad is part of a campaign by the postal employees union to keep the Postal Service alive and preserve their pay, pensions, and benefits into the unforeseeable future. The campaign contends leaving billions of employee benefit contributions with the Postal Service would help offset its annual deficits. The message doesnt consider from what pocket future pension and health benefits will be paid if prepayments are discontinued. As with many things in Washington, foresight is not encouraged. Postal Service management has suggested that Congress eliminate collective bargaining, allow the Service to run its own health care plan, terminate 200,000 employees by attrition or layoffs, discontinue Saturday deliveries and close half of their present facilities. At the same time Congress has been considering plans to restructure the Postal Service, because it may run out of money before the end of 2012. One part of the proposed overhaul would be a refund of seven billion dollars of overpayments from the federal retirement system to the Postal Service. In addition to refunding overpayments the proposed legislation suggests reform of workers compensation and health care. Well believe that when it happens. Postal Service finances are another example of Washingtons unwillingness to confront significant problems before they become crises. Its another exercise of spendnow and worry-later, the philosophy which spawned our present deficits and financial difficulties. In addition to our rapidly increasing national debt, Washington is sitting on a powder keg of other promises which may become crises in the not distant future. One example is the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC), which announced recently a 2011 deficit of $26 billion. PBGC has $107 billion of current obligations and assets of only $81 billion. By now everyone knows Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid will continue to cost more each year than the funding received to pay for them. To pay back the billions of dollars the Congress borrowed and spent over the past 30 years, Treasury will have to borrow and add to the national debt. If continued indefinitely the deficits from those three programs alone will add 40 to 60 trillion dollars to the national debt. Congress and a succession of administrations have been aware that the federal government has made more promises than there will be income to pay for them. They also know there are three available remedies additional borrowing, restructuring benefits, and raising taxes. Washington politicians find one or more of those remedies unpalatable, as evidenced by the congressional super committees three-month deadlock. However, nobody seemed alarmed when the national debt passed 15 trillion dollars while the committee was struggling. Too many of our politicians see the nations financial problems as a personal choice between duck and hide or risk political suicide. Courageous leadership is not a fourth alternative. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 25, 2011 T here were a couple of anniversaries this week that meant a lot to me, one of national significance and the other of a personal nature. On Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, by Lee Harvey Oswald. I rarely let this anniversary go by without commenting on it. For those who didnt live through those times, its hard to grasp the significance of that event. I graduated from high school in 1961 (thats right, 50 years ago), and before that was brought up in a time of good feeling and prosperity. I was born during World War II, and was barely old enough to realize what was happening when Korea broke out. The rest of the 1950s was spent just being a kid, playing a lot of sports, putting a nickel in a juke box at the local drug store every now and then and just having an enjoyable time. High school came along late in the decade, and by 1960s elections I was a senior. I remember in a class I was taking called Problems of American Democracy, that the teacher told us the next day after Kennedy won that he didnt want to hear any more of the griping that there was going to be a war. Turned out he was wrong, and we were right about Vietnam. Ironically, it was a Catholic school, but while some in the country predicted dire consequences if a Catholic were elected, those of us in our high school were actually ahead of the adults in this. We were more concerned with his politics than his religion. The peaceful times, however, continued until November 1963. I was working at a book publishing firm, a big one, and I remember suddenly being startled when the National Anthem was played from the paging system with no warning and it was rather loud. Within a few minutes we were listening to a radio broadcast telling us that Kennedy had been shot and killed. In those few seconds, our innocence was shattered. Not only were we exposed to violence on our shores, but it was seen on television, and two days later we got to see Jack Ruby kill Lee Harvey Oswald live. Nothing was ever the same. Within a few years we had riots in the streets protesting the war, which was the first one in which we saw the fighting on the tube in our living rooms. Lyndon Johnson decided not to run again in 1968, Richard Nixon was elected, and we all know how well that went. People who didnt live through the 1950s cant imagine why those people my age reminisce so much, why nostalgia television does so well, etc. We know what they havent needed to grasp, that those days are gone forever. As for that personal anniversary, the day after Kennedy was shot I went on a date, the first time with this young lady I met in the company bowling league. We were going to go bowling, but ended up at a movie instead, because the bowling lanes were closed in honor of JFK. I guess the date went all right, because 48 years later, here we are having four children and a dozen or so grandchildren over for Thanksgiving this week. Every now and then, though, I wonder what kind of world we would be living in if Lee Harvey Oswald hadnt pulled that trigger. Guess well never know.

F ormer University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, now the signal-caller for the Denver Broncos, has become a strange sort of folk hero over the past few weeks. It all started with his comeback victory over the Miami Dolphins. As the game ended, Tebow dropped to a knee in apparent prayer. It didnt take long, within a few moments he was celebrating with his teammates. Even last Thursday, when he led a late-game, latenight comeback against the New York Jets, he took a moment to pause and pray. While those actions have produced backing from many individuals, they also have attracted ridicule from others. There are mocking imitations of him in that pose out there. One thing a lot of these people ought to learn is that you shouldnt mock someones religious beliefs. Both sides can cite examples from the Bible. On one hand, there are many references to people going out and spreading the news to all nations, letting people know who they are and what they believe, and setting good examples. There are others, of course, who point to a parable of the Pharisee and the Publican, pointing out that the one who stood in the front of the church saying how good he was will not be rewarded as well as the one who stood quietly in the back of the church not drawing attention to himself. Americans, and particularly football fans, can choose which tale to follow and how they will react to others. What Tebow does, in our opinion, is a lot better than some of these ridiculous dances and celebrations that players use to draw attention to themselves after they score a touchdown. The fact that a player wants to spend a quiet moment with his God should be refreshing, not a matter for mockery. On this Thanksgiving weekend, we should be thankful that we live in a country that allows different ways of thinking, and a country that allows someone to pray without fear of retribution. In many places of the world, open display of religion, other than that which is statesponsored, can result in death. So the next time you see Tim Tebow pause a moment for some prayer, take a pause yourself and think about what he is doing. Then tell the naysayers to go pick on someone else. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont mock Tebows prayer Remembering that week in 1963 Jim Flynn Columnist Searching for the least courageous alternative Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Keep those sharp Sheep eyes focused on a hazy situation. As things begin to clear up, youll find a sharper picture emerging, showing something you will need to know. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Watch your expenses through the end of the month. Later, youll be glad to have extra money to pay for something that will make an acquisitive Bovines heart beat faster. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Youre now ready to make that oft-deferred commitment, if you still believe its what you want. Dont be afraid to change your mind if you feel you should go in another direction. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Now that you are moving on with your life after that recent disappointment, how about reactivating your travel plans and taking someone special along with you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Many new friends come into your personal life, which suits all of you social Lions just fine. However, one new friend might make demands that you could find difficult to deal with. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Communication doesnt exist unless its two-way. So if youre getting no replies to the signals youre sending, it could be time to look for someone more receptive. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A workplace complication that you thought was ironed out develops new wrinkles that need attention. Meanwhile, expect continuing improvement in your home life. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A tense personal problem needs to be talked out before someone decides to walk out. Resist making decisions until full explanations are offered from both sides. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A technological glitch that caused problems recently will soon be repaired, and life can return to normal. A colleague has a surprising message to deliver. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your partner might feel that you havent been as open with him or her as you should be. Deal with this now, before it turns into something more difficult to handle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Good news: Many of the stumbling blocks that affected the progress of some of your career projects are fading away. Things also start to look up on the home front. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youll need that strong Piscean pluck to get through waters that will be turbulent for a while. A more positive aspect soon emerges, along with some welcome news. BORN THIS WEEK: You are zealous in the pursuit of truth. You would make an excellent research scientist. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure

As the winter travel season approaches, the American Pharmacists Association encourages consumers to talk with their pharmacist about their medications before they pack their bags. This will help ensure each person knows the best way to pack their medications, what to do if the medication is lost and anything to be aware of with travel and the medication. The short conversation could save each person a lot of holiday trouble further down the road if they do not prepare correctly. Americans are known to travel a lot during the holiday and winter season. According to the Bureau of Transportation and Statistics, the number of long distance trips more than 50 miles just during the six-day Thanksgiving travel period, increases by 54 percent. Travel disrupts healthcare routines and the normal things consumers do to take care of themselves such as adhering to a medication regimen can sometimes fall from the top list of priorities. Here are some tips to help you maintain a healthy medication regime throughout the travel season: Organize a health kit that contains all of your prescription and over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals. Ensure you store medications correctly and pack ample medication and equipment. Some medications have special storage instructions or require specific dosing equipment. If you will be flying to your destination or crossing borders, always carry your medications in the original bottles in your carry-on luggage. Bring more medication than you expect to use. Talk to your pharmacist about the possibility of obtaining a medication vacation supply from your insurance company, he/she may be able to help. Being prepared for unexpected extended travel helps ensure safe and effective medication use. It is also good to know your insurance companys policy on medication transfers and replacement supplies if your medication is lost. Pack a Preventative Medicine Kit. Talk with your pharmacist about any over-the-counter medications you should pack for the area of the world you are traveling to or what you are planning to do. Basics include: anti-diarrhea, anti-nausea, antihistamine, anti-motion sickness, mild laxative or stool softener, medicine for pain or fever and antibacterial/antifungal cream/ointment. Get up-to-date on any vaccines you may need. Over the holiday season you will run into many people who could possibly be sick. Make sure to get your annual flu shot. If you are traveling overseas, make sure you have met all of the travel vaccine recommendations put out by the CDC. Beware of Drugged Driving. Certain medications can impair perception, judgment and reaction times causing a hazardous driving situation. Talk with your pharmacist about side effects your medication may cause and whether you can adjust your dosing schedule to avoid times you may need to operate a vehicle. Carry an updated personal medication and vaccination record with you. This is a list of your prescription, over-the-counter and herbal medications, how you take them, and why. This list should also contain an up-todate history of your vaccinations. If you are unexpectedly admitted into a hospital, or must see a healthcare provider while traveling, the list can help them understand your current treatments. To download a personal medication list www.pharmacist.com/pmr. Have a plan for adjusting your medication regimen. Travel may require you to adjust your medication regimen, or when you take your medication, for time and routine changes. If you are traveling across the country and would normally take a medication twice a day, for example, you may need to adjust that schedule to take your medications approximately twelve hours apart which may be earlier or later than your first bedtime or morning on another coast. Ask your pharmacist about how to alter your schedule to fit your health-care needs. Be careful or avoid drinking alcohol, especially when flying or visiting cities in higher altitudes. Alcohol can interact with many prescription and over-the-counter medicines. Ask your pharmacist if there are any foods or beverages that conflict with your medicines. You may be more inclined to eat unfamiliar foods when traveling to new cities or foreign countries. Practice good hygiene, get rest and eat well. Frequent hand-washing/cleansing, use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer and coughing /sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue will protect you and others. In addition, try not to overdo it and not get run down, eat right and drink plenty of water (and depending upon the location you may need to use bottled water) are good practices that can reduce your risk of getting sick.

For more than 10 years, Marion County Fire Rescue firefighters have helped meet the needs of families struggling to eat, stay warm and bring joy home during the holiday season. As part of this annual effort, MCFR firefighters are asking the community to partner with their Holiday Helpers drive by donating clothing, toys or nonperishable food to underprivileged children this holiday season. From now until Friday, Dec. 16, MCFR will collect toys, jackets and other warm clothing for children of all ages (newborn to teen) as well as nonperishable food, giving families hope for the holidays.

For more details, see the column on Page 16. Light Up Ocala Huge crowds gathered at the Downtown Square last Saturday for the annual Light Up Ocala event. There was plenty of food, a ferris wheel, a childrens parade punctuated with the arrival of Santa Claus, and bright lights galore. PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKCrowds were thrilled by the large tree, whose lights change color every few seconds. Santas sleigh was a bucket truck during the mid-afternoon childrens parade. No fear of heights for these people taking advantage of the ferris wheel during the big celebration. Juggler Bruce Safarian enjoyed playing with fire, much to the delight of the crowd. In an informational packet prepared for distribution to the Marion County Commission, problems associated with the new flyover being constructed were detailed. The flyover, or overpass, will connect the 31st Street Extension on the east side of Interstate 75 to the west side, going on 40th Avenue to State Road 200. It eventually will be part of a western bypass. The information sheet detailed problems, but was submitted for information only. There may be change orders in the future, however. According to the report: Work started with utility relocations on the west side of I-75 behind Berkshire Plaza, which has since been completed. Work on the east side of I-75 has included the installation of water and sewer line extensions for the City of Ocala. There were two change orders, both the responsibility of the city. Bridge pile installation on the east side began with the driving of a test pile which broke during installation. This circumstance resulted in changes by FDOT and a replacement test pile was then successfully driven. Of the remaining 19 piles driven on the east side, two more broke during installation and one was driven short which requires a splice. Work to replace the two broken piles will take place at a later date. The short pile needed to be over driven to meet refusal. Breaking of bridge piles is not a typical occurrence and it is one that requires close coordination by the contractor with both FDOT and the County. Cost for the 3 replacement piles at this time will be the responsibility of the Contractor. Work has now relocated to the west side of I-75 within its right of way. No action was expected from the commissioners. Flyover problems detailed to county December AARP Driver Safety ClassesAARP Driver Safety Classes are scheduled for four locations in Marion County during the month of December.

Light Up Ocala

Huge crowds gathered at the Downtown Square last Saturday for the annual Light
Up Ocala event. There was plenty of food, a ferris wheel, a children's parade punc-
tuated with the arrival of Santa Claus, and bright lights galore.

Santa's sleigh was a bucket truck during the
mid-afternoon children's parade.

Flyover


problems


detailed


to county

In an informational packet pre-
pared for distribution to the Mar-
ion County Commission, problems
associated with the new flyover
being constructed were detailed.
The flyover, or overpass, will
connect the 31st Street Extension
on the east side of Interstate 75 to
the west side, going on 40th
Avenue to State Road 200. It even-
tually will be part of a western by-
pass.
The information sheet detailed
problems, but was submitted for
information only There may be
change orders in the future, how-
ever.
According to the report:
"Work started with utility relo-
cations on the west side of I-75 be-
hind Berkshire Plaza, which has
since been completed. Work on
the east side of 1-75 has included
the installation of water and sewer
line extensions for the City of
Ocala." There were two change or-
ders, both the responsibility of the
city.
"Bridge pile installation on the
east side began with the driving of
a test pile which broke during in-
stallation. This circumstance re-
sulted in changes by FDOT .. and a
replacement test pile was then
successfully driven. Of the re-
maining 19 piles driven on the east
side, two more broke during in-
stallation and one was driven
short which requires a splice.
Work to replace the two broken
piles will take place at a later date.
The short pile needed to be over
driven to meet refusal.
"Breaking of bridge piles is not a
typical occurrence and it is one
that requires close coordination
by the contractor with both FDOT
and the County. Cost for the 3 re-
placement piles at this time will
be the responsibility of the Con-
tractor.
"Work has now relocated to the
west side of 1-75 within its right of
way."
No action was expected from
the commissioners.

OUR VIEW



Don't mock


Tebow's prayer
Former University of Florida quarterback Tim
Tebow, now the signal-caller for the Denver
Broncos, has become a strange sort of folk hero
over the past few weeks.
It all started with his comeback victory over the
Miami Dolphins. As the game ended, Tebow dropped to
a knee in apparent prayer.
It didn't take long, within a few moments he was cel-
ebrating with his teammates.
Even last Thursday, when he led a late-game, late-
night comeback against the New York Jets, he took a
moment to pause and pray
While those actions have produced backing from
many individuals, they also have attracted ridicule
from others. There are mocking imitations of him in
that pose out there.
One thing a lot of these people ought to learn is that
you shouldn't mock someone's religious beliefs. Both
sides can cite examples from the Bible. On one hand,
there are many references to people going out and
"spreading the news" to all nations, letting people know
who they are and what they believe, and setting good
examples. There are others, of course, who point to a
parable of the Pharisee and the Publican, pointing out
that the one who stood in the front of the church saying
how good he was will not be rewarded as well as the
one who stood quietly in the back of the church not
drawing attention to himself.
Americans, and particularly football fans, can choose
which tale to follow and how they will react to others.
What Tebow does, in our opinion, is a lot better than
some of these ridiculous dances and celebrations that
players use to draw attention to themselves after they
score a touchdown.
The fact that a player wants to spend a quiet moment
with his God should be refreshing, not a matter for
mockery.
On this Thanksgiving weekend, we should be thankful
that we live in a country that allows different ways of
thinking, and a country that allows someone to pray
without fear of retribution. In many places of the world,
open display of religion, other than that which is state-
sponsored, can result in death.
So the next time you see Tim Tebow pause a moment
for some prayer, take a pause yourself and think about
what he is doing.
Then tell the naysayers to go pick on someone else.


COMMENTARY


Remembering that week in 1963


There were a couple of an-
niversaries this week that
meant a lot to me, one of
national significance and the
other of a personal nature.
On Nov. 22, 1963, President
John E Kennedy was assassi-
nated in Dallas, Texas, by Lee
Harvey Oswald. I rarely let this
anniversary go by without com-
menting on it.
For those who didn't live
through those times, it's hard to
grasp the significance of that
event.
I graduated from high school in
1961 (that's right, 50 years ago),
and before that was brought up
in a time of good feeling and
prosperity I was born during
World War II, and was barely old
enough to realize what was hap-
pening when Korea broke out.
The rest of the 1950s was spent
just being a kid, playing a lot of
sports, putting a nickel in a juke
box at the local drug store every
now and then and just having an
enjoyable time.
High school came along late in
the decade, and by 1960's elec-
tions I was a senior. I remember
in a class I was taking called
"Problems of American Democ-
racy," that the teacher told us the
next day after Kennedy won that
he didn't want to hear any more
of the griping that "there was
going to be a war" Turned out he
was wrong, and we were right ...


about Vietnam.
Ironically, it was a Catholic
school, but while some in the
country predicted dire conse-
quences if a Catholic were
elected, those of us in our high
school were actually ahead of
the adults in this.
We were more concerned with
his politics than his religion. The
peaceful times, however, contin-
ued until November 1963. I was
working at a book publishing
firm, a big one, and I remember
suddenly being startled when the
National Anthem was played
from the paging system with no
warning.. and it was rather loud.
Within a few minutes we were
listening to a radio broadcast
telling us that Kennedy had been
shot and killed.
In those few seconds, our inno-
cence was shattered. Not only
were we exposed to violence on
our shores, but it was seen on tel-
evision, and two days later we got
to see Jack Ruby kill Lee Harvey
Oswald live.
Nothing was ever the same.
Within a few years we had riots


in the streets protesting the war,
which was the first one in which
we saw the fighting on the tube in
our living rooms. Lyndon John-
son decided not to run again in
1968, Richard Nixon was elected,
and we all know how well that
went.
People who didn't live through
the 1950s can't imagine why
those people my age reminisce
so much, why nostalgia televi-
sion does so well, etc. We know
what they haven't needed to
grasp, that those days are gone
forever.
As for that personal anniver-
sary, the day after Kennedy was
shot I went on a date, the first
time with this young lady I met in
the company bowling league. We
were going to go bowling, but
ended up at a movie instead, be-
cause the bowling lanes were
closed in honor of JFK
I guess the date went all right,
because 48 years later, here we
are having four children and a
dozen or so grandchildren over
for Thanksgiving this week
Every now and then, though, I
wonder what kind of world we
would be living in if Lee Harvey
Oswald hadn't pulled that trigger.
Guess we'll never know.

Searching for the least courageous alternative


There has been a cutesy car-
toon message on television
lately, showing billions of
dollars being siphoned from the
Postal Service into the Federal
Treasury The ad is part of a cam-
paign by the postal employees
union to keep the Postal Service
alive and preserve their pay,
pensions, and benefits into the
unforeseeable future.
The campaign contends leav-
ing billions of employee benefit
contributions with the Postal
Service would help offset its an-
nual deficits.
The message doesn't consider
from what pocket future pension
and health benefits will be paid
if prepayments are discontinued.
As with many things in Washing-
ton, foresight is not encouraged.
Postal Service management
has suggested that Congress
eliminate collective bargaining,
allow the Service to run its own
health care plan, terminate
200,000 employees by attrition or
layoffs, discontinue Saturday de-
liveries and close half of their
present facilities.
At the same time Congress has
been considering plans to re-
structure the Postal Service, be-
cause it may run out of money
before the end of 2012.
One part of the proposed over-
haul would be a refund of seven
billion dollars of"overpayments"


Jim Flynn
Columnist


from the federal retirement sys-
tem to the Postal Service.
In addition to refunding over-
payments the proposed legisla-
tion suggests reform of workers
compensation and health care.
We'll believe that when it hap-
pens.
Postal Service finances are an-
other example of Washington's
unwillingness to confront signif-
icant problems before they be-
come crises.
It's another exercise of spend-
now and worry-later, the philoso-
phy which spawned our present
deficits and financial difficulties.
In addition to our rapidly in-
creasing national debt, Washing-
ton is sitting on a powder keg of
other promises which may be-
come crises in the not distant fu-
ture.
One example is the Pension
Benefit Guarantee Corporation
(PBGC), which announced re-
cently a 2011 deficit of $26 bil-
lion. PBGC has $107 billion of
current obligations and assets of
only $81 billion.


By now everyone knows Social
Security, Medicare, and Medi-
caid will continue to cost more
each year than the funding re-
ceived to pay for them. To pay
back the billions of dollars the
Congress borrowed and spent
over the past 30 years, Treasury
will have to borrow and add to
the national debt. If continued
indefinitely the deficits from
those three programs alone will
add 40 to 60 trillion dollars to the
national debt.
Congress and a succession of
administrations have been
aware that the federal govern-
ment has made more promises
than there will be income to pay
for them. They also know there
are three available remedies -
additional borrowing, restruc-
turing benefits, and raising taxes.
Washington politicians find
one or more of those remedies
unpalatable, as evidenced by the
congressional super committee's
three-month deadlock. However,
nobody seemed alarmed when
the national debt passed 15 tril-
lion dollars while the committee
was struggling.
Too many of our politicians see
the nation's financial problems
as a personal choice between
duck and hide or risk political
suicide. Courageous leadership
is not a fourth alternative.

GUEST COLUMN

Thanksgiving should be every day


BY BRYAN GOLDEN
Special to the Citizen
Thanksgiving is much
more than a big meal
with family and friends.
It's a time to reflect on, and
be thankful for, all of the good
things you have. Even with all
of the uncertainty and tur-
moil in the world, you have so
much to be thankful for. It's
important to be grateful, not
just on Thanksgiving, but
each and every day Rather
than lamenting what you feel
is lacking in your life, begin
each new day by developing
an attitude of gratitude. Take
inventory of your blessings
and you will be surprised at
just how much you have to be
thankful for.
If you have enough to eat, a
place to live, a way to get
around, people who care
about you, or people you care
about, then you are wealthy
If you lack any of these ele-
ments, you must still be grate-
ful for what you do have,
while striving to obtain what-
ever is absent.
Focus on all positive as-
pects of your life. Take noth-
ing for granted. Every
morning, recharge your ap-
preciation. Be happy for
everything there is, not upset
over what you feel is missing.
Dreams of the future
shouldn't diminish apprecia-
tion for the present. If all you
do is concentrate on what you
want, you won't enjoy today
Don't be jealous of others;


what they do or have has no
bearing on you.
You can feel bitter or re-
sentful for a variety of rea-
sons. Perhaps you feel
something is missing from
your life, things aren't going
your way, or you have been
treated unfairly You may
wonder, "Why do these things
always happen to me?"
Life's problems tend to
dominate your thoughts,
turning your focus to what
you feel is wrong. You may
start to resent those who ap-
pear to be better off. You're
apt to dwell on things you
think would make your life
better if you had them. If only
you had more money, more
time, a bigger house, a differ-
ent car, a different job, a dif-
ferent boss, had picked a
different career, etc.
Once your attitude be-
comes one of deficiency in-
stead of abundance and
appreciation, you can be-
come overwhelmed by feel-
ings of frustration and feel
like a victim. As this happens,
a consuming vicious cycle
starts.
Being bitter or resentful
blows situations out of pro-
portion. People who are bit-
ter frequently find that their
situations deteriorate and
their mental and physical
health decays.
It's difficult, if not impossi-
ble, to achieve your goals
while you are bitter or re-
sentful. Regardless of what
challenges might befall you,


bitterness makes finding so-
lutions much more elusive.
There is no point to feeling
bitter since it accomplishes
nothing, harms you and
makes things worse. Filling
yourself with gratitude on a
daily basis makes you feel
good, while driving out nega-
tive feelings.
Begin your practice of grat-
itude each morning as soon
as you wake. Every day is a
great day If you have any
doubts, try missing one. Take
inventory of everything, no
matter how small or seem-
ingly insignificant, that is
good in your life.
If it helps, make a written
list of all things you are grate-
ful for. Read your list every
day As you do this, you will
build and reinforce your atti-
tude of gratitude. Don't waste
any time with what you feel
you don't have.
Keep things in perspective.
Consider all the people who
have overcome difficulties
far worse than yours. Don't be
consumed by your problems,
there is always a solution.
Maintaining an attitude of
gratitude allows your mind to
devise a resolution for your
circumstances.
Make every day a day of
Thanksgiving and you will be
amazed how much better
your life will become.

velopment expert, syndicated

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


If my people
If we take an honest look at Amer-
ica today, it is obvious we are at a
crossroads which will determine our
future as a great nation. Our republic
form of government, our capitalistic
system, our economy, our love of free-
dom, and the very moral fiber of
America is under attack. This is
painfully demonstrated by the so
called one percent mobs and the signs
and messages they support. They
don't understand we are a nation of
individual responsibility, a land of op-
portunity, not a land of handouts and
guarantees. Even worse is the very
real attempt to remove God from our
culture, our way of life.
There was a recent study that re-
vealed the illegitimacy rate for new
born babies in the 60s was three per-
cent. We enjoyed a time when chil-
dren came home to both a mom and
dad, where the family was the back-
bone of our society Now we have the
illegitimacy rate at 60 percent or bet-
ter with "single moms" being the rule
rather than the exception. Many ba-
bies will never even know the identity
of their fathers, and their families are
expecting taxpayers to support them.
There are obvious exceptions to this
situation, but facts show the majority
end up depending on government
welfare programs. Too many men do
not pay for the child's support, and
this is a disgrace.
Many good citizens now believe we
have gone too far in this wrong direc-
tion for America to survive, and we
undoubtedly have if we depend on
politicians of any party to heal this
great land of ours. The answer instead
is very simple, to again put our com-
plete trust in God, our creator. This
answer is found in God's word, God's
promise to his people as follows: "If
My people, which are called by My


name, shall humble themselves, and
pray, and seek My face, and turn from
their wicked ways; Then will I hear
from Heaven, and will forgive their
sin, and will heal their land. What a
promise! The wonderful realization of
this promise is that God doesn't ex-
pect this from the "non-believer," as
He knows that His word is "foolish-
ness" to them. The other side of the
coin is what the consequences will be
if believers don't do this! Our future is
in God's hands and this fact/His prom-
ise should get all of His people down
on our knees to pray for God to bless
and heal America!

Thanksgiving
I want to thank Judi Siegal for writ-
ing the lovely article reminding all of
us that Thanksgiving is a unique time
in our history when all Judeo Chris-
tians share not only our tied religions
and our American culture. It is a time
to remember why our ancestors ar-
rived on these shores, it's a time to re-
member the European persecutions
of both religions. Yes both religions
wanted to be free to practice their
faith. Americans until recently en-
joyed just that, but sadly the Constitu-
tion is being shredded, Anti-Semitism
is on the rise and Christianity is once
again under attract.
The last 60 years we have allowed
the evil among us, the progressives to
chip away at these freedoms. Our na-
tional day of prayer is no more, and
for the first time in over 200 years
there will be no Christmas celebra-
tion at the White House. How sad for
the country that was built on these
very traditions.
I for one want my Constitution, my
religious freedoms and my cherished

After Thanksgiving feasting comes the loafing


Rev.
James L
Snyder


OUT



wenty-four hours
ago, I was seated
with my family and
friends around the
Thanksgiving table. Now, I
am seated in my chair and
cannot move. I won't say I
ate too much yesterday I
did, I just won't say it.
Why is it on Thanksgiv-
ing we give ourselves per-
mission to gorge ourselves
to the point of semi-con-
sciousness? The difference
between consciousness
and semi-consciousness is
that with semi-conscious-
ness you feel like you have
been run over by a semi-
truck.
Of course, a great thing
about Thanksgiving is the
fabulous dinner spread,
surrounded by family and
friends. It is truly a time to
give thanks to God for the
manifold blessings he has
showered on us throughout
the year. Although there
have been a few drought
times during the past year,
God's showers of blessing
always came at the right
time.
Thanksgiving Day is for
the diet-challenged per-
son. Nothing is more chal-
lenging to me than my diet.
And of this in particular I
am most grateful for
Thanksgiving. It is the one
day of the year I can toss
caution to the wind (which
is the only exercise I get on
Thanksgiving) and forget
my diet carefully super-
vised by the Gracious Mis-
tress of the Parsonage.
It is not that I take ad-
vantage of the situation ...


OK, so I do take advantage
of the situation. However,
that is the glorious aspect
of holidays like Thanksgiv-
ing. The person, me in par-
ticular, can get away with
things that the rest of the
year would be impossible.
And I'm not just thinking
of that second piece of
pumpkin pie.
The second great thing
about Thanksgiving is the
day after. The business
community refers to this
day as Black Friday. They
mean, of course, it is a day
when they turn their
ledger from red to black.
Whoever invented the
shopping frenzy associated
with the day after Thanks-
giving should be congratu-
lated and offered the
Nobel Peace Prize. Black
Friday in our home is
when my wife and our
daughters leave the house
early in the morning to
spend the entire day shop-
ping and I get the opportu-
nity to black out for the
entire day If I may say so,
it is a glorious day of loaf-
ing.
The feast like we usually
have on Thanksgiving Day
requires at least one full
day of concentrating and
allowing the meal to digest,
no matter how long it takes.
The older I get the longer it
takes my digestive system
to complete its work. My
philosophy is, don't rush
the process.
I'm all for cooperation. I
believe this world would
get along much better if
everybody would just co-
operate. I set the example
by cooperating with my di-
gestive system for the en-
tire day

I have found the best way
to assist my digestive sys-
tem is to spend the day
loafing. And I have man-
aged to bring loafing to a
finely developed art. It has
taken years for me to get to
this point of expertise.
Throughout the years, I
have developed the finesse
associated with total loaf-
ing that should be
recorded somewhere.
My expertise in this area
is most remarkable for the
simple fact that I only get
to practice this one day out
of the year. I can assure
you that one day is in-
tensely devoted to the
strenuous activity of loaf-
ing.
If you promise not to let
this get back to you know
who, I do get in an odd day
every now and again to
practice for this day No-
body can reach the pinna-
cle of success I have on this
matter without some kind
of practice throughout the
year. I am completely de-
voted to my art, as any
other artist would be.
In case someone gets the
wrong idea about all of
this, let me assure you that
loafing has certain health
benefits. Of course, if I am
caught practicing my loaf-

ing when my wife has in-
structed me to do some
things around the house, it
has an adverse effect on
my health. The key here is
to practice loafing when
your wife is out of the
house shopping the entire
day, which is why Black
Friday was invented.
It is a proven fact that
most of the people in our
country today are over-
worked and totally
stressed out by their lives.
In spite of all the technol-
ogy available to us, we are
a nation that has forgotten
how to rest.
Years ago in our country,
when we were more Chris-
tian than we are today, we
set aside Sunday as the day


of rest. That has com-
pletely gone by the wayside
as we became a culture of
24/7 activity. The only solu-
tion all our experts have
come up with is to pop a
pill and keep on going.
A friend of mine has a
marvelous saying, "Either
come apart and rest a
while, or you will simply
come apart." I like that.
Jesus said something
similar. "Come unto me, all
ye that labour and are
heavy laden, and I will give
you rest. Take my yoke
upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in
heart: and ye shall find rest
unto your souls. For my
yoke is easy, and my bur-
den is light." (Matthew


11:28-30 KJV)
We have learned how to
feast and our buffet table is
loaded with goodies. Per-
haps it would be a good
time to take some time to
rest and let our soul settle
and digest the rich bless-
ings of God.

Holiday Food Drive update
Our annual holiday food
drive continues through
Dec. 6. Food drive coordi-
nator Gloria Wilberg re-
ported that since Mary Ann
Hall began monthly food
drives for Interfaith in
April, and including this
holiday food drive, Marion
Landing residents have do-
nated more than 1,200
pounds of food to help the


area needy. "We're hoping
to reach one ton of food
(donated) this year," said
Gloria. Almost any un-
opened food item not re-
quiring refrigeration is
welcome, such as canned
fruit and vegetables, pasta,
cereal and peanut butter.
Plastic containers are pre-
ferred. Hygiene products
such as tooth paste and de-
odorant are needed, too.
Over the next month,
let's do our best to reach
this goal and help Inter-
faith provide packages to
needy families for the hol-
idays. Donations may be
brought to the Lifestyle
Center and placed in the
baskets underneath the
residents' mail boxes. All
donations are accepted.

Murder Mystery Solved
The date was Nov 6; the
time: 5 p.m.; the victim:
Pepi Roni. Was there mo-
tive? Was there means?
Was there opportunity?
The audience had to find


out who the unknown as-
sailant was, and it was a
case of mistaken identity at
the Murder Mystery Din-
ner presented by the Sun-
shine Committee. The
victim, Pepi Roni, twin
brother of Marco Roni, was
murdered in his brother's
place. The plot thickened
with many clues and accu-
sations, but the murderer
was finally discovered. It
was Bo Jalais, played by
Jim Adwell.
While they sorted
through the tangled web
woven by a very interesting
cast of characters, the au-
dience enjoyed an Italian
dinner at Raffoney's
Restaurant (aka: the

Community Fall
Sale a success
Folks were lined up in

waiting for the doors to

7:45 a.m. to accommodate
the crowd," said Peggy

"I'd like to thank all the
volunteers who worked so
hard putting the sale to-
gether." All in all, the sale
raised $1,980 for the com-


munity, with the remain-
der of the items that didn't
sell being donated to a

Famed underwater photographer OAK RUN
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 18
cnsalrc tor Olakr Riin Phortro lubh


Famed underwater pho-
tographer Bruce Mozert
enthralled Oak Run Pho-
tography Club members
and guests with tales from
75 years of photography
He told how he came to Sil-
ver Springs in 1938 on a
stopover from a planned
trip to Miami. He de-
scribed the early underwa-
ter housings he invented
and told how he wore a
diver's helmet to use them.
The 35 famous photos he
displayed included the one
he said made Jayne Mans-
field famous.
Mozert said that actor
Lloyd Bridges was a per-
fect gentleman and very
good to work with. He had
other choice words for un-
named actors who were at
the other extreme. He, im-
plying that Esther Williams
enjoyed martinis too much,
said that she was amazing
in how red eyed she could
get at night and still be
beautiful the next morning.
He described going 2,000
miles up the Amazon on a
photo shoot, swimming
with piranhas ("they wont
hurt you if there is no
blood in the water") and
walking on a bridge cable
over one of New York's


pI 17 tIV VSIIO I IdlI I U IV V tIL


rivers. He still flies air-
planes but only rented
planes today; he has
owned five or six aircraft.
He did his latest aerial
photography just a month
or so ago.
His talk included talking
about hand coloring prints
with dye before color film
was introduced. This is a
dying art that he continues
to use today for turning
brown grass green and
other artistic effects.
In response to a ques-
tion, he said he uses digital
cameras today and has
$45,000 worth of useless
film equipment.

Mozert, who was to be 95

reshooting an underwater

with the same model. She
is now 80 years of age and
is still an attractive woman

Black Friday on Pun Alley


Dick

PUN



Thanksgiving, is
called Black Friday
when many vendors want
to get out of the red and
into the black. They hope
the recession will really
end with a frenzied activity
of shoppers at many differ-
ent stores, starting from
early morning to late in the
day
The Black Friday tradi-
tion was actually started by
the pilgrims when they cel-
ebrated by getting in their
boat and cruising up and
down the coastline in what

After Thanksgiving Day
Sail."
Carrying on this tradi-
tion, Pun Alley gives you
some two-bit puns and bar-
gain basement stories.
Shopaholic aliens
Scientists have an-
nounced that they ob-
served a planet entirely
covered by one gigantic
shopping center. The skep-
tical scientists didn't be-
lieve it at first, but they've
now confirmed that it's a
mall world after all.
No shopping
A boy accompanied his
aunt to the mall to do some
shopping after picking up
her pay at her nearby place
of work. While they were in
the mall parking lot, a
purse-snatcher ran up,
grabbed her purse and dis-
appeared between the
cars.
The boy spotted a mall
security guard and ran up
to him and said, "Some-
body stole my aunt's pay!"
The security guard
looked the boy up and

down and said, "Cut out
the foolish Pig-Latin and
tell me what really hap-
pened."
Eighty percent off
The lingerie storeowner
was having security prob-
lems because women were
stealing underwear in the
dressing rooms. He in-
stalled cameras in there.
He's still getting ripped off,
but makes it all back on the
video sales.

Once you've seen one
shopping center you've
seen a mall.

The shoplifter at the lin-
gerie shop gave police the
slip.
It makes no difference
what it is; a woman will
buy anything she thinks the
store is losing money on.
Biology is the study of
shopping habits.

PUN
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21
I went into a general
store. They wouldn't let me
buy anything specific.
Silver transformer
A family from the forest
was visiting a huge mall in
Orlando the first time in
their lives. The father and
son were strolling around
while the wife shopped.
They were amazed by al-
most everything they saw,
but especially by two shiny
silver walls that could
move apart and then slide
back together again.
The boy asked, "Paw,
what's that?"
The father responded,
"Son, I dunno. I ain't never
seen nothing' like that in my
whole life."
While the boy and his fa-
ther were watching, an
ugly fat woman waddled up
to the moving walls and
pressed a button. The walls
opened and the woman en-
tered between them into a
small room. The walls
closed and the boy and his
father watched the small
circular number above the
walls light up sequentially
They continued to watch
until it reached a high
number and then the num-
bers began to light in the
reverse order. Then the
walls opened up again and
a gorgeous, voluptuous 24
year-old blond woman
stepped out.
The father, not taking his
eyes off the young woman,
said quietly to his son,
"Boy, go git your Momma!"
Watch It!
A blonde went to an ap-


Please use our e-mail: editor@smcitizen.com


pliance store sale and
found a bargain. "I would
like to buy this TV," she told
the salesman.
"Sorry, we don't sell to
blondes," he replied.
The blonde was very
angry with this. She hur-
ried home and dyed her
hair, then came back and
again told the salesman, "I
would like to buy this TV"
"Sorry we don't sell to
blondes," he replied.
The blonde did not know
how the salesman had rec-
ognized her. This time, she
got a haircut and new color,
a new outfit and big sun-
glasses. She then waited a
few days before she ap-
proached the salesman.
"I would like to buy this
TV"
"Sorry, we don't sell to
blondes," he replied.
Frustrated, she ex-
claimed, "How do you
know I'm a blonde?"
"Because that's a mi-
crowave," he replied.
Actually buying a mi-
croware is not a bad idea.
They're cheaper than TVs
and you can see what's
cooking- many times more
interesting than the
garbage we get on TV
Come back next week to
Pun Alley to see what I've
cooked up.

The story of a young man named Lucy . '.


In elementary school
Lou C. Lynch's teacher
calls out his full name
which to his classmates
sounds like "Lucy" and the
humiliating name sticks.
Lucy grows up to be a good
man if to the world he is
quite ordinary, a hard
Pat worker but not clever or ar-
Wellington ticulate.
No one sees that he is
perceptive and highly in-
telligent. Misunderstood at
an early age, Lucy laments,
"I've always known that
there's more going on in-
side me than finds its way
into the world, but this is


probably true of everyone.
Who doesn't regret that he
isn't more fully under-
stood?" To that end in mid-
dle age he starts his
memoir to set the record
straight.
In "Bridge of Sighs,"
Richard Russo's expansive
portrait of a fraying small
town, among his solid citi-
zens, like Lucy, love fades,
quotidian responsibilities
overwhelm the youthful
passions that made life
worth living, and eventu-
ally they all make compro-
mises with reality.
In this multi-genera-


tional novel, characters
physically run away like
childhood friend Bobby
Noonan and his mother or
mentally escape like
Lucy's wife Sarah.
A touching moment oc-
curs after Lucy's father
Lou dies. Lucy had always
identified with his father,
secretly resenting his
mother Tessa's strength
that highlighted his fa-
ther's ineptitude. Tessa
confesses in tears, "I never
wanted you not to love your
father. I wanted you to love
me. Did it ever occur to you
even once in all those

years that you might have
taken my side?" Tessa is a
remarkable character
whose unfinished sen-
tences say everything
about her smothered
dreams.
Recurrent themes
throughout this novel are
these: People grow up but
never change; we never re-
ally know our parents;
women marry the good


guys but yearn for the ras-
cals.
Although I have issues
with the editors for not
trimming this book by at
least 100 pages, I have
nothing but praise for the
contents. Russo endows his
humble protagonist with a
certain nobility and the
pitch-perfect details make
"Bridge of Sighs" a memo-
rable read.

ARIES (March 21 to April
19) Keep those sharp Sheep
eyes focused on a hazy situ-
ation. As things begin to
clear up, you'll find a
sharper picture emerging,
showing something you will
need to know.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) Watch your expenses
through the end of the
month. Later, you'll be glad
to have extra money to pay
for something that will make
an acquisitive Bovine's
heart beat faster
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) You're now ready to
make that oft-deferred com-
mitment, if you still believe
it's what you want. Don't be
afraid to change your mind
if you feel you should go in
another direction.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Now that you are moving
on with your life after that
recent disappointment, how
about reactivating your
travel plans and taking
someone special along with
you.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Many new friends come into
your personal life, which
suits all of you social Lions
just fine. However, one new
friend might make demands
that you could find difficult
to deal with.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept
22) Communication doesn't
exist unless it's two-way. So
if you're getting no replies to
the signals you're sending, it
could be time to look for
someone more receptive.
LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
A workplace complication
that you thought was ironed
out develops new wrinkles
that need attention. Mean-
while, expect continuing im-
provement in your home
life.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov.
21) A tense personal prob-
lem needs to be talked out
before someone decides to
walk out. Resist making de-
cisions until full explana-
tions are offered from both
sides.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21) A technological
glitch that caused problems
recently will soon be re-
paired, and life can return
to normal. A colleague has a
surprising message to de-
liver.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to
Jan. 19) Your partner might
feel that you haven't been as
open with him or her as you
should be. Deal with this
now, before it turns into
something more difficult to
handle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to
Feb. 18) Good news: Many of
the stumbling blocks that af-
fected the progress of some
of your career projects are
fading away. Things also
start to look up on the home
front
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March
20) You'll need that strong
Piscean pluck to get through
waters that will be turbulent
for a while. A more positive
aspect soon emerges, along
with some welcome news.
BORN THIS WEEK: You
are zealous in the pursuit of
truth. You would make an
excellent research scientist

HERE IS A PLEASANT LITTLE GAME that will give you a

out your fortune. Count the letters in your first name. If the
number of letters is 6 or more, subtract 4. If the number is less
than 6, add 3. The result is your key number. Start at the up-
per left-hand corner and check one of your key numbers, left
to right. Then read the message the letters under the
checked figures give you.

at the figures given at the bot-

the diagram by following the
arithmetic signs in the order
they are given (that is, from left

only the numbers below the

Know your medications: Keep your holiday travel safe


As the winter travel season approaches, the American
Pharmacists Association encourages consumers to talk
with their pharmacist about their medications before
they pack their bags. This will help ensure each person
knows the best way to pack their medications, what to do
if the medication is lost and anything to be aware of with
travel and the medication. The short conversation could
save each person a lot of holiday trouble further down
the road if they do not prepare correctly
Americans are known to travel a lot during the holi-
day and winter season. According to the Bureau of
Transportation and Statistics, the number of long dis-
tance trips more than 50 miles just during the six-day
Thanksgiving travel period, increases by 54 percent.
Travel disrupts healthcare routines and the normal
things consumers do to take care of themselves such as
adhering to a medication regimen can sometimes fall
from the top list of priorities.
Here are some tips to help you maintain a healthy
medication regime throughout the travel season:
Organize a health kit that contains all of your pre-
scription and over-the-counter medications, herbal sup-
plements, vitamins and minerals. Ensure you store
medications correctly and pack ample medication and
equipment. Some medications have special storage in-
structions or require specific dosing equipment. If you
will be flying to your destination or crossing borders, al-
ways carry your medications in the original bottles in
your carry-on luggage.
Bring more medication than you expect to use. Talk to
your pharmacist about the possibility of obtaining a med-
ication "vacation supply" from your insurance company,
he/she may be able to help. Being prepared for unex-
pected extended travel helps ensure safe and effective
medication use. It is also good to know your insurance
company's policy on medication transfers and replace-
ment supplies if your medication is lost.
Pack a "Preventative Medicine" Kit. Talk with your
pharmacist about any over-the-counter medications you
should pack for the area of the world you are traveling to


Check out our website
www.smcitizen.com


or what you are planning to do. Basics include: anti-di-
arrhea, anti-nausea, antihistamine, anti-motion sickness,
mild laxative or stool softener, medicine for pain or fever
and antibacterial/antifungal cream/ointment.
Get up-to-date on any vaccines you may need. Over the
holiday season you will run into many people who could
possibly be sick. Make sure to get your annual flu shot. If
you are traveling overseas, make sure you have met all of
the travel vaccine recommendations put out by the CDC.
Beware of "Drugged Driving." Certain medications
can impair perception, judgment and reaction times
causing a hazardous driving situation. Talk with your
pharmacist about side effects your medication may
cause and whether you can adjust your dosing schedule
to avoid times you may need to operate a vehicle.
Carry an updated personal medication and vaccina-
tion record with you. This is a list of your prescription,
over-the-counter and herbal medications, how you take
them, and why This list should also contain an up-to-
date history of your vaccinations. If you are unexpect-
edly admitted into a hospital, or must see a healthcare
provider while traveling, the list can help them under-
stand your current treatments. To download a personal
medication list www.pharmacist.com/pmr
Have a plan for adjusting your medication regimen.
Travel may require you to adjust your medication regi-
men, or when you take your medication, for time and
routine changes. If you are traveling across the country
and would normally take a medication twice a day, for
example, you may need to adjust that schedule to take
your medications approximately twelve hours apart-
which may be earlier or later than your first bedtime or
morning on another coast. Ask your pharmacist about
how to alter your schedule to fit your health-care needs.

Be careful or avoid drinking alcohol, especially when
flying or visiting cities in higher altitudes. Alcohol can
interact with many prescription and over-the-counter
medicines.
Ask your pharmacist if there are any foods or bever-
ages that conflict with your medicines. You may be more
inclined to eat unfamiliar foods when traveling to new
cities or foreign countries.
Practice good hygiene, get rest and eat well. Frequent
hand-washing/cleansing, use of alcohol-based hand san-
itizer and coughing/sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue
will protect you and others. In addition, try not to overdo
it and not get run down, eat right and drink plenty of
water (and depending upon the location you may need to
use bottled water) are good practices that can reduce
your risk of getting sick
About the American Pharmacists Association
The American Pharmacists Association, founded in
1852 as the American Pharmaceutical Association, is a
501 (c)(6) organization, representing more than 62,000
practicing pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, stu-
dent pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and others in-
terested in advancing the profession. APhA, dedicated
to helping all pharmacists improve medication use and
advance patient care, is the first-established and largest
association of pharmacists in the United States.
