The day was Dec. 7. The occa-
sion was the 20th anniversary of
the Fleet Reserve Association,
Branch/Unit 186 who sponsored a
Remembrance Day luncheon hon-
oring Pearl Harbor survivors. The
place was Stumpknockers restau-
rant on State Road 200 at the Mar-
ion/Citrus County line. The
luncheon is to honor all military
and civilian personnel who were
at Pearl Harbor when the Japan-
ese attacked.
A solemn Two-Bell ceremony
was performed by members of the


branch honoring all those de-
parted shipmates who are now
serving on the Staff of the
Supreme Commander.
Each survivor was presented by
Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted a
beautiful plaque commemorating
the occasion. Adelicious meal was
served to all those in attendance
by invitation.
Upon the conclusion of the
meal, each survivor was given a
knife to start the desert portion of
the meal by cutting into a cake
baked in their honor
One must remember that these


survivors are in the late 80s if not
their 90s. A serviceman entering
the service at 18 years of age
would have been at this ceremony
70 years later after the attack by
Japanese forces on Pearl Harbor
88 years of age. Each year the
number of survivors dwindles.
The attack put the United States
into World War II and the WW II
veterans have been classified as
members of the "Greatest Genera-
tion."
Photos of this event can be
found on Pages 18-19.


Thefts,



threats



at local



stores

BYJIM CLARK
Editor

A pair of alleged shoplifters face
felony charges after several inci-
dents along the Corridor recently
An incident that started at Wal-
mart and ended at Beall's resulted
in the arrest of Kenneth Lee
Miller Jr, 36, of Southwest 232nd
Court, Dunnellon, on charges of
aggravated assault and retail
grand theft.
According to a report from the
Marion County Sheriff's Office
Southwest District, loss preven-
tion personnel in Walmart, Miller
was seen acting suspiciously in the
electronics area on Dec. 9.
He selected a Blu-Ray player
and took it to the infants area,
where he used a box cutter to
open the package and take out the
player.
He then went to the food area
selected several items, according
to the report, then went to men's
area and pulled out Walmart bags
and filled them with items in his
cart.
He then went toward the front
exit, passing all areas where he
could pay for the items.
When confronted by two em-
ployees, he allegedly pulled out
the box cutter and threatened
them, then ran toward Beall's,
dropping the box cutter on the
way
At Beall's, he allegedly changed
clothes, but deputies arrived and
arrested him.
According to the report, he was
already on probation for grand
theft.
Three days earlier at Beall's,
Jessica Leigh Spano, 26, of Port
Orange, was accused of retail
grand theft and resisting a mer-
chant.
According to the report, the loss
prevention officer observed
Spano conceal children's clothing
in her purse and leave the store.
He followed her out and told her
to return to the store, which she
did, but she refused to enter the
loss prevention office.
According to the report, she
tried to flee, but the officer put her
in a "bear hug" and attempted to
get her through the doorway
However, "she raised her feet
and braced herself at the opening,
preventing entry, and said she was
pregnant," according to the report.
The officer released her and she
entered the office.
The value of the items was
nearly $400.

As people gather to-
gether for occasions that
make the holidays bright,
remember that releasing
balloons may be harmful to
wildlife.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) wants
event and meeting organiz-
ers and other Floridians to
be aware of a law prohibit-
ing the release of more
than nine lighter-than-air
balloons within a 24-hour
period.
Instead of releasing bal-
loons this holiday season,
the FWC suggests groups
use more environmentally
friendly ways to celebrate
events such as New Year's
Eve and football bowl
games.
The release into the at-
mosphere of large num-
bers of balloons inflated
with lighter-than-air gases
poses a danger and nui-
sance to the environment,
particularly to wildlife and
marine animals. Balloons
released in Florida almost
inevitably end up in the
Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic
Ocean or other water bod-
ies. Wildlife, especially sea
turtles, mistake balloons
for food, and strings at-
tached to balloons can en-
tangle birds and other







Read the
classified


animals.
There are exceptions for
balloons released indoors,
scientific or meteorologi-
cal balloons released by a
government agency or
under government con-
tract, or hot air balloons re-
covered after launching.

OTOW Lions sponsor two rooms for veterans


BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD
('l '_joj -'. O i i ,',i ltl
Living quarters for
veterans, new Master
the Possibilities cat-
alog availability, and enter-
tainment marks this week's
OTOW Happenings.
OTOW Lions Club
As previously reported,
the OTOW Lions Club, in
partnership with Volun-
teers ofAmerica, has spon-
sored two rooms to be
converted into living quar-
ters at the Ritz Hotel for
homeless veterans. Each of
the living quarters accom-
modates two veterans. On
Nov 16, OTOW Lions Club


members turned these two
spaces into homes. The
furniture for the living
quarters was donated by
OTOW Communities.
Ac/Atina Self Storage gra-
ciously provided space for
materials for these living
quarters to be stored until
painting, etc. were com-
pleted by those contracted
to address these needs.
Senior Transitions pro-
vided transportation of the
furniture, etc. to move
these items from the stor-
age units to the Ritz. Wal-
mart 200 helped with gift

Dear EarthTalk: I know
that large fish contain a lot
of mercury, but where does
it come from? And what
are we doing to prevent
this contamination?
Alison Bronner,
Atlanta, GA
Mercury in the fish we
like to eat is a big problem
in the United States and in-
creasingly around the
world. Mercury itself is a
naturally occurring ele-
ment that is present
throughout the environ-
ment and in plants and an-
imals.
But human industrial ac-
tivity (such as coal-fired
electricity generation,
smelting and the incinera-
tion of waste) ratchets up
the amount of airborne
mercury which eventually
finds its way into lakes,
rivers and the ocean,
where it is gobbled up by
unsuspecting fish and
other marine life.
Once this mercury gets
into the marine food chain,
it "bioaccumulates" in the
larger predators. That's
why larger fish are gener-
ally riskier to eat than
smaller ones.
Those of us who eat too
much mercury-laden fish
can suffer from a range of
health maladies including
reproductive troubles and
nervous system disorders.
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
reports that human fetuses
exposed to mercury before
birth "may be at an in-
creased risk of poor per-
formance on
neurobehavioral tasks,
such as those measuring
attention, fine motor func-
tion, language skills, visual-
spatial abilities and verbal
memory."
Up to 10 percent of
American women of child-
bearing age carry enough
mercury in their blood-
streams to put their devel-
oping children at
increased risk for develop-
mental problems.
In partnership with the
U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration, the EPA is-
sues determinations
periodically in regard to
how much mercury is safe
for consumers to ingest
from eating fish. State and
tribal environmental au-
thorities and/or health de-
partments issue fish
consumption advisories for


EARTH


water bodies in their re-
spective jurisdictions
based on federal guide-
lines. The EPA consoli-
dates these local and
regional advisories on its
website, where concerned
consumers and fisher folk
can click on a map of the
states to find out which ad-
visories may be in effect in
their area.

As for which fish to
avoid, the non-profit Envi-
ronmental Defense Fund
(EDF), which runs the
handy Seafood Selector
website, reports that peo-
ple with mercury concerns
should steer clear of
bluefin tuna, walleye, king
mackerel and marlin.
Bluefish, shark, swordfish,
wild sturgeon, opah and
bigeye tuna carry a propor-
tionately large mercury
burden as well.
Also of concern, but to a
slightly lesser extent, are
orange roughy, Chilean sea
bass, blue crab, lingcod,
Spanish mackerel, spotted
seatrout, wahoo, grouper,
snapper, halibut, tile fish,
rock fish and sable fish, as
well as blackfin, albacore
and yellowfin tuna.
Beyond what individuals
can do to avoid mercury,
the U.S. government and
states have begun working
together to reduce mer-
cury emissions from power
plants.
Earlier this year the EPA
proposed new "Mercury
and Air Toxics Standards"
regulating mercury emis-
sions from utilities across
the country, with the goal
of reducing the amount of
mercury emitted by coal
burning by 91 percent by
2016.
Elsewhere, representa-
tives from 140 countries
signed on to reduce global
mercury pollution at a 2009
United Nations Environ-
ment Program's Governing
Council meeting in
Nairobi, Kenya.
The agreement commits
signatory countries-in-
cluding the U.S.-to cutting
back on the use and emis-
sion of mercury
A legally binding treaty
mandating just how much
each country will have to
cut back mercury emis-
sions takes hold in 2013.

PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN
REGIONAL MANAGER: JOHN PROVOST
EDITOR: JIM CLARK
"In a free society a community newspaper must be aforum
for community opinion."

OUR VIEW



Manufactured home


sales could be hurt

Unlike the owners of site-built housing, many
owners of manufactured homes rent the land on
which their homes sit. Current Florida law as
contained in Florida Statute 723 prohibits the owner of
a manufactured home park from raising the rent on a
lot or amending access to amenities solely on the basis
of a change in ownership of a home.
This means the purchaser of an existing manufac-
tured home knows the cost of rent and terms of access
to amenities for the length of the original purchaser's
rental agreement, which under current law, the new
owner can assume.
However, changes in state law as proposed in House
Bill 271 and Senate Bill 386 would amend the language
of current law and allow the owner of a manufactured
home community to raise rent or make other changes
when an owner sells their home.
Tenants of manufactured home communities are con-
cerned if passed, these bills would lead to uncertainty
on the part of potential purchasers and would make
sale of a manufactured home more difficult.
We believe their concerns are valid. While we gener-
ally believe owners of property should have consider-
able latitude in how they use their property, this seems
like a situation where protections are necessary for
those who rent the land on which their homes sit.
People who purchase manufactured homes often
make the purchase decision based on the cost of the
housing unit and cost of living in the community. State
law already allows the owner of a park to raise rents in
the entire park with proper notification, but it also pro-
vides protection for individual home buyers.
We believe this is an unnecessary change in law that
has the potential of benefiting owners of manufactured
home parks at the expense of owners of the homes, and
urge the bills be defeated in the legislature.
Citrus County Chronicle


COMMENTARY


Don't you need water to have a port?


Last week we carried a story
from our parent newspa-
per, the Citrus County
Chronicle, about how Citrus
County wanted to develop Port
Citrus. It had a statement in
there that Marion County was
setting up an "inland port."
That sent me scrambling for a
map of Marion County Was there
a river I didn't know about? I did-
n't think the Oklawaha or Withla-
coochee were available for
shipping. The unfinished Barge
Canal doesn't produce traffic in
our county.
Not finding any, I went to the
Internet to a dictionary Website.
I'm always glad to learn some-
thing. Maybe there was a defini-
tion I didn't know about.
Here were the definitions of
"port" that I found:
1. place where ships load or
unload
2. harbor
3. the left side of a vessel, fac-
ing forward
4. sweet, dark red wine
5. opening in a ship's side
data connection in a computer
to which a peripheral device can
be attached.
There is a use of "inland port"
that says an inland site that
serves some of the functions of a
port on the water.
So they were right. To have a


port, you don't have to have
water. But I don't think that's
what most people think of when
they think of a port. Government
language, such as an "inland
port," is not always shared by the
general public.
My interest was now piqued. I
did a little more research in the
Chronicle. Port Citrus, it seems,
has water. There was a story in
which a county commissioner
talked about the Barge Canal
coming in off the Gulf. They've
evidently already got barge traf-
fic. After all, Port Citrus has a lot
of water ...it's called the Gulf of
Mexico.
That same commissioner
made the comment that Ocala
had zero water.
Now when I think of an inland
port, I think of places such as
Memphis or St. Louis, you know,
on the Mississippi River, where
shipping traffic can come up
from the Gulf all the way to those
cities and others along the wa-
terway


But Ocala insists on calling its
area an "inland port." It's north
of U.S. Highway 27, just east of
Interstate 75. Most Marion
County residents have been con-
ditioned to calling it the Magna
property.
There is going to be a railway
extension into the property,
which will enhance its use as a
shipping area. But as far as I
know, there is no water exten-
sion into the property
Many say this area will be an
economic boon to the county, and
that may be true.
But I still want to see what dif-
ferences it's going to make in
nearby residential areas, partic-
ularly such as sites like Quail
Meadow and others along North-
west 44th Avenue.
We should continue to work
with Citrus County on the proj-
ect. Maybe they could even build
a new rail line from where the
barges come into the Magna land
in Ocala.
But let's not call it an inland
port. It's an industrial park, al-
beit a large one. To call it a port
could be misleading to those who
may not know the terminology.

A nation in search of a new nationalism


Last week President Obama
made a political speech in
Osawatomie, Kansas, ex-
plaining why his economic poli-
cies are best for the nation. He
was trolling for middle-class
votes in Republican territory by
channeling the memory of one of
our greatest presidents-
Theodore Roosevelt.
Mr. Obama said income in-
equality is the defining issue of
our time: "What is at stake is
whether we will be a country
where working people can earn
enough to raise a family, build a
modest savings, own a home, and
secure their retirement."
The President dismissed Re-
publican arguments that free
markets with fewer regulations
and lower taxes for high income
producers are the right remedies
to revive our ailing economy He
said: "It doesn't work. It has
never worked."
Mr. Obama chose Kansas to
give this early attack speech be-
cause Theodore Roosevelt gave
one of his most famous speeches
at Osawatomie in 1910. The is-
sues Mr. Obama presented are
likely to be the basics of his re-
election campaign and be heard
repeatedly over the next 11
months.
During the nine years in
which he completed the term of
assassinated president William
McKinley and was elected to a
term of his own (1901-1909)
Theodore Roosevelt fashioned
his presidency as progressive

conservatism, which became
known as his New Nationalism
challenge for control of the Re-
publican Party.
Roosevelt felt Republicans
should adhere to the principles
of the party's first president -
Abraham Lincoln. He saw Lin-
coln as an honest reformer and
color-blind advocate of "orderly
liberty under law." Like Lincoln,
Roosevelt was dismissive of
zealots on both extremes of po-
litical issues.
In today's politics Theodore
Roosevelt would be labeled a
"RINO," by his own party, mean-
ing Republican in name only But
who in either political party can
stand up to Roosevelt's accom-
plishments?
He was the youngest member
of the New York State Assembly,
U.S. Civil Service Commissioner,
New York City Police Commis-


sioner, Assistant Secretary of the
Navy, Governor of New York, and
our youngest president ever at
age 42.
Politics aside, Mr. Roosevelt
overcame a sickly childhood and
became an athlete, a world ex-
plorer, conservationist, historian,
cowboy, winner of a Nobel Peace
Prize, and a heroic soldier. He
joined the U.S. Volunteer Cav-
alry Regiment, also known as the
Rough Riders, and as colonel led
them at the front in several his-
toric battles of the Spanish-
American War.
Mr. Roosevelt is ranked fifth
among our presidents for the ac-
complishments of his political
career.
The Obama presidency and
the inept current Congress have
been powerless to resolve the
economic mess which was cre-
ated by the previous administra-
tion and its Congress. The nation
is in desperate need of a leader
with Theodore Roosevelt's hon-
esty, experience and grit. We see
none among current Republican
candidates for the White House.
And despite your speech in Os-
awatomie, you are no TR., Mr.
President.

GUEST COLUMN


Airpower: Looking forward to 2012 amid budget cuts


BY MIKE EMIG
Special to the Citizen
As we prepare to embark
on the adventures of a new
year, we must take with us
the memories of 2011. We
must reflect on all the
achievements and suc-
cesses, disappointments
and mishaps, and the
warning signs that have
been brought to the atten-
tion of our nation.
Our U.S. military contin-
ues its strong role in global
humanitarian missions,
coming to the aid of a dev-
astated Japan earlier in
March. We delivered hope
with our airlift capabilities
and saved lives with our
aeromedical evacuation.
We've had military ac-
complishments in Iraq,
Afghanistan and Libya, in-


eluding the killing of
Osama bin Laden and
many other top al-Qaeda
leaders. Also, the support
of the U.S. airpower was
instrumental to the success
of the end of Libyan dicta-
tor Moammar Gaddafi's
regime.
We've begun the with-
drawal of U.S. troops from
Iraq, hoping to have them
all home by the year's offi-
cial end. We've seen the na-
tion take a strong stand on
behalf of our veterans,
passing the bipartisan
"VOW to Hire Heroes Act"
that aims to lower the rate
of unemployment among
our nation's veterans.
But we can't forget the
losses of devoted service
members in the air and on
the grounds ofAfghanistan
and Iraq.


As asymmetric threats
around the world continue
to emerge, there comes an
increased pressure to ade-
quately provide for the de-
fense of this nation and its
allies. At the same time,
our country is battling dev-
astating budget cuts leav-
ing senior military leaders
with tough choices to
make. With this in mind,
2012 could be a very piv-
otal year for the nation, its
defense capabilities and
the U.S. Air Force.
Now that the Super
Committee didn't turn out
to be all that super, we
have a year to get this right
before sequestration kicks
in. In other terms, we have
a year to strategically plan


what presence we want to
display globally We have a
year to decide what's im-
portant to our defense,
what we can afford to cut
and what we can afford to
disregard.
But, when we debate po-
tential cuts, we must not ig-
nore warning signs. Just
last week Chinese Presi-
dent Hu Jintao urged their
navy to prepare for mili-
tary combat, in the midst of
growing regional tensions
over maritime disputes.
North Korea is claiming
progression on a nuclear
facility, U.S. relations with
Pakistan continue to de-
cline, prospects of Iran
having nuclear weapons
continue to increase. And

we don't know what kind of
government we leave be-
hind in Iraq. Also, the ef-
fects of uprisings in the
Arab Spring on U.S. inter-
ests have yet to be re-
vealed.
So when we deliberate
on what capabilities we
need, these budget cuts
must be made with a de-
gree of caution. Yes, the na-
tion is in economic hard
times and budget cuts must
be made. I don't believe de-
fense should necessarily
be exempt from those cuts.
But, precautions must be
made. Don't eliminate or
neglect capabilities vital to
this nation's defense and
prosperity. Our budget
must reflect realistic prior-


ities.
The reality is that war-
fare is changing. Tradi-
tional land and sea power
are joined with irreplace-
able air power and in-
creasing importance in the
cyber domain. So as the
new year starts, we must
keep our eyes open. We
failed in the 1930's to heed
the warnings of Billy
Mitchell about Japan and
thought Hitler's book,
Mein Kampf, a joke. We've
been getting warning signs
now from adversaries
abroad, so let's make sure
we heed them this time as
we reshape our defense.

Air Force Association in

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Postal employees' bad rap
The front line postal em-
ployees are receiving a bad
rap for the service or lack
of service that the Ameri-
can public has had to put
up with these past few
years. It is hard to work for
managers who have been
cutting service to save
money on their budget
rather than using methods
to improve service and
customer satisfaction.
The Postal Service has
lost much of the parcel
post business because of
poor service and the
United Parcel Company
has increased business all
over the world because of
good service. Part of the
reason for this loss is that
letter carriers are ordered
to work eight hours even if
it means bringing back the
parcels that could have
been delivered that day
When a United Parcel
Service driver leaves for
his daily rounds they are
told to deliver any and all
parcels and to return with
an empty truck which is
good service.
When the Postal service
increases first class
postage they only have in-
creases of 1 or 2 cents for
each 1st class letter to ap-
pease the Board of Gover-
nors who control the
postage rates rather than
the Post Office itself. If you
need to increase revenue
to cover your expenses
then charge what is neces-
sary to make a reasonable
profit and let the public
know The last time that I
looked, it took the same
amount of time to deliver a
third class letter at 19 cents
as it does first class mail at
44 cents per letter so why
not increase the cost of
third class mail and bring
it to profitability All
postage rates should be re-
viewed and increased
where necessary to keep
this house to house deliv-
ery service compatible.


Postal managers in
Washington are trying to
eliminate Saturday deliv-
ery and open up the busi-
ness to private enterprise
who could pick and choose
where and when mail
would be delivered for a
profit. The Postal Service
does not have a clear vi-
sion on how to create op-
portunities to improve and
increase their business
and should realize that tak-
ing away service from the
American public is the
wrong way to save money
and stay in business.

Looking at college football
At this time of the year I
begin to go into football
withdrawal as the season
draws to a close, ending
with the good, bad and this
year, the ugly But the first
thing I hear Friday morn-
ing is great news, Charlie
Weis is leaving Florida as
offensive coordinator!
What a positive way to start
the weekend! For some
reason some believed that
success in the NFL means
success at the college level.
Wrong! If we looked at his
background we discover he
was fired from Notre
Dame. The Florida offense
under his leadership was
statistically one of the


worst in the SEC and defi-
nitely the worst Gator of-
fense since 1988. Sadly, as
the season progressed, we
didn't get any better.
Against good teams, the
Gators could not score
points, and this is prima-
rily a result of coaching,
not bad players. Good
coaches know how to get
the best out of the players,
emphasize their talents
and motivate them to per-
form at high levels. In most
cases we simply fell apart
in the second half as the
other coaches made suc-
cessful half time adjust-
ments to shut the offense
down. If he had not quit, he
should have been fired!
Some talk of his recruit-
ing ability, well the loss of
11 scholarship players
does not speak well for
what these young players
saw as future Gators. Re-
cruiting should never be a
problem for Florida, sim-
ply because we are Florida
and always recruit a highly
ranked class. The verdict is
still out on Muschamp's
ability as the head coach,
but I have no doubt the of-
fense will be better with
someone other than Weis.
Hopefully Kerwin Bell will
receive serious considera-
tion. He has a proven
record within the college
ranks and will bring a gen-


uine loyalty factor with
him that is badly needed at
this time.
Turning to the upcoming
bowl games, am I the only
one that thinks we don't
need 35 bowls? There are
14 teams playing in bowls
that do not have a winning
record and should stay
home, and that includes
Florida and Ohio State. A
genuine top 10 team, Boise
State (11-1) has to play one


of these (6 -6) teams which
is a slap in their face. Fix
the system by simply hav-
ing the top 10 play in the
top 5 bowls with a plus one
format to determine the
BCS Champion, no matter
what conference they rep-
resent. Being able to play
in a bowl game should be a
reward for a good season,
not rewarding mediocrity
At least, with Weis gone, I
will be able to watch the

Gingrich penalty
Newt Gingrich paid the biggest mon-
etary penalty imposed on a U.S. House
speaker after an investigation by their
Ethics Committee. The former speaker
used a tax-exempt public policy group
to promote his candidacy
He continued to use them even after-
ward. He twice misled the committee.
He receives $1.3 billion a year from
Georgia's Richards family, owners of
Southwire Corporate.
The Richards lent and donated
money and office space to Gingrich
from his earliest days in politics. Gin-
grich was the first recipient of dona-
tions from Southwire's PAC. By
coincidence, Gingrich has changed
from an environmentalist critic of
Southwire to a staunch anti-environ-
mentalist during that time.

S i e g a I Christmas trappings from

humanistic are based on the wisdom

d Ruth Pearl I am proud to be part of a


continuum that traces its
roots back to the patriarch
Abraham and to Mount
Sinai.
While others in the an-
cient Near East were sac-
rificing children to their
gods, my ancestors forbade
the practice and set in mo-
tion a set of laws which
were to become the foun-
dation of Western Society.
Its system of guidance,
based on the teachings of
the Torah and its commen-
taries, is the cornerstone of
the faith.
It is a religion, which un-
derstands the human con-
dition, and I can turn to it
at any time for guidance
and inspiration. It is a faith
based on traditions and rit-
uals. While some of these
are centuries old, in light
of modern times, they are
being reinterpreted and
made more meaningful to
moderns.
I love being Jewish be-
cause of the universality of
the Jewish faith. The God


we worship is the Creator
of all. We therefore regard
every human being with
the dignity and respect
they deserve. We respect
all people of different
faiths as we realize there
are others who hold beliefs
as true as ours.
Being part of a people is
important to me. I have in-
stant mishpocha, family,
with any Jew I meet. We
are part of an ethnic group
with customs, folkways and
language that cannot stand
alone from the faith.
Everything we do has a
basis in Judaism from not
hunting animals for sport
to supporting charitable
causes.
It's how we raise our
children with our empha-
sis on education to the pro-
fessions and occupations
that we undertake. It's the
joy we get when yet an-
other of us is given the

also the collective guilt and
shame we all feel when a

Jew commits a terrible
crime. We have a saying
that all Jews are responsi-
ble for one another and
this kind of thinking is
what holds us together as a
people.
I am glad to be Jewish
because I have a spiritual
homeland, Israel. I have
been there twice and I
have been very impressed
each time I have visited.
What the Israelis have ac-
complished in 60 some odd
years of independence is
miraculous but even more
so is that they have shared
their knowledge with other
nations.
As Jews we are supposed
to set an example for the
world and I am proud that
Israel with its scientific
and technological knowl-
edge has done just that.
An important tenet ofJu-
daism is tzedakah or char-
ity Along with helping
those less fortunate, Jews
are exhorted to make the
world a better place or
what we call Tikun Olam,
repairing the world. From
helping with disaster relief
to volunteering in the com-
munity, Jews have always
lent a helping hand where
needed. I like being a part


Read the
classified


of a community with altru-
istic principles.
Judaism is a religion of
love. Each day, once in the
morning and upon retiring,
observant Jews recite the
Shema, the Jewish state-
ment of faith declaring that
God is one and that we
should love God with our
whole being.
This love we have for
God is also the love God
has for us which translates
into the love we have for
others.
This whole idea of what
is called ethical monothe-
ism is the great principle
Jews gave to the world. I
love being a part of that
tradition.
Lastly, I love Jewish food.
(Of course you knew that
was coming!) You don't
need to be Jewish to like
bagels and lox or matzah
ball soup but to me, these
things just taste better be-
cause I am Jewish!
The Maccabees of old
fought to retain Jewish
identity against the Syrian
Greeks of the day The mil-
itary battle was won and
the Temple was rededi-
cated to Jewish worship.
Amid the commercialism
of the Christmas season,
modern Maccabees hold
forth their Jewish identity
and through the dark night
a menorah burns brightly!
Happy Chanukah!
(Chanukah is observed
Dec. 20 through 28)

Christmas fruitcake always gets a bad rap


Rev.
James L
Snyder


OUT



M any reasons exist
why a person
should love and
embrace the Christmas
season. I hear of those who
attack the Christmas sea-
son and I take no notice to
them at all. The thing that
keeps buffoons energized
is attention paid to them. If
they were really serious
about their so-called be-
liefs, they would leave the
country during the Christ-
mas season and go some-
where where it is not
celebrated.
My recommendation is
the bottom of the Atlantic
Ocean.
Ignoring the holiday buf-
foons, I snuggle down and
enjoy the Christmas festiv-
ities. So much about the
season to savor and enjoy
The Gracious Mistress of
the Parsonage has our
home all decorated for the


Christmas season. In the
evening, we sit down in the
living room among all of
the decorations, sip our hot
cocoa and have a healthy
slice of Christmas fruit-
cake.
When it comes to deco-
rating things, I don't even
have a thumb. During this
time, I envy those who are
all thumbs. My decorating
expertise is simply to enjoy
the work done. And that I
do.
I love everything about
the Christmas season, ex-
cept maybe shopping in
the mall. I think there
should be some kind of a
law restricting shopping in
the mall. It is not that I hate
going to the mall ...well, I
guess if I am truthful, I re-
ally do hate going to the
mall. If they had a nice
good used bookstore, I
might see my way to the
mall more often and delib-
erately
Apart from the mall, the
Christmas season is a ter-
rific time to be alive.
I love the Christmas
trees. Go ahead and call it
a "Holiday Tree" if you do
not mind letting other peo-
ple know how stupid you
really sound. Solomon, in
the Old Testament, had
some of these people in
mind when he wrote,
"Even a fool, when he
holdeth his peace, is
counted wise: and he that
shutteth his lips is es-
teemed a man of under-


standing." (Proverbs 17:28
KJV). If it is a "Holiday
Tree," which holiday does
it represent?
I love all the decorations
associated with this time of
year. Throughout the year,
everything seems to be
rather drab, but when
Christmas comes along
things begin to brighten up.
I love all the stories asso-
ciated with Christmas. Yes,
I know some of them are
just stories made up; but
every once in a while it is
good to listen to a story
The fact that somebody has
accused Santa's reindeer's
of bullying poor little
Rudolph only indicate that
some people do not know
the difference between
fact and fiction.
Do not let this get out,
but, Rudolph the Red Nose
Reindeer does not even
exist. He is just a made-up
character in a Christmas
story I know that will come
as a shock to many people,
but the truth is the truth no
matter whom it hurts.
I love the music of
Christmas. Particularly, be-
cause 90 percent of the
Christmas music is reli-
gious. Go figure? Nothing
is more inspiring than lis-
tening to a choir sing Han-
del's Messiah. Of course,
there is a danger that the
wrong people will get a
hold of this great piece of
music and want to change
the title. I am looking for
someone to protest this


and insist we call it, "Han-
del's Person."
The music of Christmas
is uplifting and inspiring
despite all the naysayers
that seem to come out of
the ground during this
time of the year. I wish they
would stay underground
and celebrate whatever
they celebrate with Punx-
sutawney Phil.
Dare I mention the food
of Christmas? I'm going to
anyway The best thing
about the food at Christ-
mas time is that nobody,
and when I am talking
about nobody, I am refer-
ring of course to my wife,
says, "You shouldn't be eat-
ing that." The beauty of
Christmas food is that you
can eat it whenever and as
much as you like.
When I come back for my
second slice of fruitcake
and somebody looks at me
I always say, "I'm starting


my diet next month." And I
get away with it.
Speaking of fruitcake, it
is the best part of the
Christmas food frenzy My
biggest concern in this
area is that the fruitcake
has gotten a very bad rap
by people who do not un-
derstand this delicacy It is
a very wonderful way for a
person to get their daily
portion of fruit. How nice
of it to be mixed in with
cake. After all, if the word
"fruit," is associated with
it, it must be good, right?
Everybody knows fruit is
good for a person.
I take my portion of veg-
etables in carrot cake and
my portion of fruit in fruit-
cake. This is the cuisine of
the gods.
There is a very practical
side to this fruitcake busi-
ness. As I am picking up my
fifth slice of fruitcake, I
begin thinking about the


New Year and how I need
to add more fruit to my
diet. As I slowly chew on
the fruitcake, every aspect
of my being is energized
with glorious delight and
goodwill toward men. After
a few slices of fruitcake, I
am in such a good mood
that even the "Holiday
Tree" people do not bother
me so much. Nothing
comes between my fruit-
cake and me.
Christmas is the season
to rejoice in God's love for
the world so much that he
sent his only son, Jesus
Christ.

HOW THEY VOTED


U.S. Senate
Cloture on the Nomination of Richard Cordray to be
Director, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection
Vote Rejected (53-45, 1 Present, 1 Not Voting)
The Senate failed to reach the 60 votes needed to move
forward on the nomination of Richard Cordray to lead
the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB,
which was created by the Dodd Frank financial regula-
tory overhaul, is responsible for overseeing financial
products like home loans and credit cards.
Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio voted NO
Motion to Proceed; Middle Class Tax Cut Act of 2011
Vote Rejected (50-48, 2 Not Voting)
The Senate rejected a motion to move forward on this
Democratic proposal to reduce the employee share of
the payroll tax from 4.2 to 3.1 percent for 2012. The em-
ployer share would stay at 6.2 percent. The payroll tax
funds the Social Security trust fund. A law passed in De-
cember 2010 is set to expire at the end of 2011 that re-
duced the employee share from 6.2 to 4.2 percent.
Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES

ernment Reduction Act
Vote Rejected (22-76, 2 Not Voting)

freezing federal pay and reducing the federal workforce
by attrition.
Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted NO
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio voted YES

U.S. House
Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny
(REINS) Act of 2011
Vote Passed (241-84, 8 Not Voting)
This bill would require congressional approval of fed-


eral regulations that are expected to cost the economy
$100 million or more or have a significant effect on con-

Breakfast

served at

Methodist

Church
Thanks to the support of
friends and neighbors in
the local community, the
Men's Ministry breakfast at
Ocala West United
Methodist Church, held on
Saturday, Dec. 10, was a
huge success. This event is
held on the 2nd Saturday of
each month and all are
welcome. The men arrive
at 4:30 a.m. to start the
preparations for the
crowds who attend regu-
larly to enjoy a fantastic
breakfast at a great price.
The men are joined in the
effort by the Boy Scouts of
pack 707 who attend the
guests in the dining room
by serving coffee and juice
and cleaning up after-
wards. A large portion of
the profit from this event
goes back into outreach
projects within the local
area.
This month the Men's
Ministry was joined by the
Women's Ministry who con-
ducted a cookie and craft
sale in conjunction with
the breakfast.

Garden Club
The Oak Run Garden Club's
silver anniversary party was a
wonderful, elegant affair from


the black and white decor to the
silver bookmarks and silver
wrapped "25" chocolates at each
place setting. Thanks to Jan
Plaisted, Dodi Addington and
helpers. Connie Fangman cre-
ated a beautiful picture depict-
ing the "Road of Presidents"
since 1986, 25 years ago. Lisa
Lombardo from the College of
Central Florida Foundation
commended the club's partner-
ship with the college. The club
has contributed over $10,000 to
the endowed scholarship pro-
gram in the horticulture depart-
ment of the college. A letter from
the mayor of Ocala congratulated
the club citing the many things
the Garden Club has done for
Ocala. There were other letters
from the Troubadours, the Decca
Family, the Oak Run Homeown-
ers Association and the Spruce
Creek Garden Club. Our club as-
sisted Sandy Upor in starting
their club. Roses were presented
to past presidents and new offi-
cers.
Gift certificates were won from
Cracker Barrel, Julie's Salon,
The 200 Studio, Cutting Edge
Salon, Get In The Zone and other
"silver" prizes. Amy of Home and
Hearth located in Marketplace
created holiday decorations
using living greens and fruits.
Amy also donated a $25 gift to the
CCF Foundation in our name. All
silver gifts! Carol Cunningham
was awarded the most valued sil-
ver member with a gift for her ef-
forts to the CCF partnership. She
also was president of the garden
club two years, and volunteers in


the horticulture department at
the college. Hats off to all who
helped make this a very special
party!
Our next Garden Club meeting
is Wednesday, Jan. 4, at 9 a.m. in
the Orchid Club. Our guest will
be Carolee Carter, founder of the
African Violet Club of Ocala and
a resident here. Carolee is an
avid lover of African violets and
we look forward to her enthusi-
astic presentation. Membership
of $5 is also due in January Our
new officers for 2012 are Pat
Callahan, President, Sharon Ca-
rigilo, Vice President, Sylvia
Ellis, Secretary and Connie
Fangman, Treasurer. Congratu-
lations to all. All Oak Run resi-
dents are invited to join us at the
Garden Club. For more informa-
tion call Pat Callahan, who is
listed in the directory May you
have a happy and healthy New
Year.

Troubadours Would You
Like to Join?
The year 2011 is almost over
and what an exciting time the
Troubadours have had. Our
spring concert was a great hit. We
had a full house both nights. Our
Christmas program was enthusi-
astically received as well. What
more could we ask for? Oak Run
residents are so supportive of us
and we want to express our sin-
cere appreciation.
We are preparing for this com-
ing year's program on April 11
and 12, and it will be one of the
best we have done. We are invit-
ing interested singers in all cate-


gories who would like to sing
with us to call Mary Beth Lake,
our musical director, at 352-873-
8787. She will be glad to talk with
you. Our practices will start on
Thursday, Jan. 5, at 1 p.m., so
don't delay calling if you are in-
terested in joining us.

Singles Club
Merry Christmas and Happy
Holidays to all! On Nov 28 we
celebrated the holidays with our
annual dinner at Stone Creek
Grille. There was a wonderful
turn out, including the past mem-
bers who we invited to this func-
tion. Lots of door prizes
enhanced the holiday spirit for
all of us.
Our new officers for the year
2012 were elected: President,
Roger Januchowski; Vice Presi-
dent, Clara Laskay; Secretary,
Maggie Naypaver; Treasurer,
Diane Sistrunk. We welcome our
new officers and wish them well
for the New Year.
On Jan. 17 we will be going to
the Ruth Eckert Hall for a Glenn
Miller Orchestra performance.
There are a few spaces open, so
call Jessica Usher at 352-873-
4551.
Our February meeting will be
very different. Keep watching for
more details! Contact Roger at
352-291-1004 with club questions.

Oak Run Travel
On Dec.8, 54 residents of Oak
Run traveled to DeLand, and
toured the Stetson Mansion, the
city of DeLand, and Stetson Uni-
versity It was a fabulous trip and


everyone had a wonderful time
especially with our extremely
knowledgeable and interesting
guide, Kent. If you didn't get to go
on the trip this year, we hope to
offer it again next year so watch
for this trip in our next brochure.
On Thursday, Feb. 16, Jan and
Joann Flickinger will host a trip
to the Florida State Fair. The
cost of the bus is only $22 and
everyone will pay their own ad-
mission at the fair so that you
will be able to purchase any ad-
ditional attractions you desire.
There are so many displays and
attractions that everyone should
find many things to do at this fair.
No one does Irish like the
Rovers! Wayne and Howardean
Krueger will host the trip to Ruth
Eckerd Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 28,
to see this fantastic group (and,
yes, you will be back in time for
bingo!) If you love a good laugh
and if Celtic strains from guitars,
banjo, accordion and the
bodhran make you want to clap
your hands, stomp your feet, or
get up and dance, this show is for
you.

Little Theatre
Since her arrival here in Oak
Run, Bonnie Kreider has ap-
peared in just about every one of
the plays presented by the two
theatre groups and has won pub-
lic acclaim for her roles. She
brings her acting savvy to Little
Theatre's spring production of
"Sex Please, We're Sixty" in the
role of Victoria Ambrose, a

renowned author who writes
steamy romantic novels. She
pines for romance in her per-
sonal life but finds none. She
comes to the Rose Cottage Bed
and Breakfast because she has
heard of the antics of "Bud The
Stud' who has romanced a large
number of the lady residents of
the lodge and is in hopes she can
turn his escapades into a fitting
ending of a novel she is working
on but can't find a suitable con-
clusion for.
Flattered at first by Bud's at-
tentions, she later sees him as
the shallow, insincere casanova
that he really is. She joins forces
with the other ladies to turn
"Bud the Stud" into "Bud the
Dud." The hilarious goings-on
will have you rolling in the aisles
with laughter.

Firm ticket sale dates are not
yet available but for advance in-
formation call Linda Noel at 352-
873-9908. The cost of the dinner
theatre presentation on March
22 is $30 per person. Those of you
who have attended previous din-
ner theatre shows know that they
are in all regards premier
events.
Reserved seats will be $7, gen-
eral admission $5, for the re-
maining shows on the 23rd
through the 25th. For the best
choice of seats remember to get
your tickets early

marcsuk-3rd.

On Thursday, Dec.8, the
ORWGA group celebrated their
annual Christmas Party at Citrus
Hills Golf and Country Club. This
event welcomed current players
as well as former players who
are now social members.
It was wonderful to have time
to chat, reminisce and enjoy the
beautifully decorated Garden
Room.
Everyone enjoyed their deli-
cious luncheon choices and then
it was time for the rewards for
their fine golf play throughout
the past year.
Lots of laughter, a game that
tested us "right and left," prizes
for the numerous winners from a
50-50 drawing to benefit Hospice
of Marion County and even a
chorus or two of 'Jingle Bells"
added to the merriment. What a
lovely way to welcome the holi-
day season !
Reminder to all members that
annual dues should be given to
Terri Feeley by the end of the
month and that Jan. 16, is the
date for the ORWGA meeting at
the Island Club at 9:30 a.m.

with a score of 273.

Dawson, Bob Albright, Larry

A lunch prepared by Royal
Oaks was served to the partici-
pants, and consisted of sausage,
chicken, beans, cole slaw, and
cherry cobbler.
As usual it was excellent. Our
thanks to the dining staff once
again.
A special thanks goes to the co-
chairs of the tournament, Dave
Dawson and Paul Colatruglio.
They were ably assisted by Dick
Blackburn, and our professional,
Lori Wilkes.


And so goes another year into
the books.
We're looking forward to more
outstanding tournaments in the
coming year, so be sure to sign up
for the club.

Leisure


ARIES (March 21 to April
19) I know, dear Lamb, that
you don't like anyone trying
to take charge of one of your
projects, but try to be a bit
more flexible. A new idea
could help hasten a positive
result.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) I'm sure, like the time-
thrifty Taurus that you are,
that you've done much of
your holiday shopping. But
don't relax yet. Wrap those
gifts now to save yourself
lots of unwanted pressure.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) Be receptive when a
family member or friend
asks to confide in you. Your
positive reaction could en-
sure that he or she will have
a happy holiday experience.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Don't be rushed into
wrapping up that workplace
problem. Consider leaving it
until after the holidays. This
way you'll have the facts you
need to reach the right reso-
lution.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
You'll get news that will
make you glow brighter than
the lights of the holiday sea-
son. Be sure to use what you
learn both carefully and
kindly, to avoid giving the
wrong impression.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept
22) That frayed relationship
could be mended in time for
the holidays if you were
more flexible. Give a little,
and you could get back a lot
more than you imagined.
LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
Things might not seem to be
settling down as quickly as
you would prefer. But it
might be just a little holiday
time flutter. You'll soon get
news that will lead to more
stability.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov.
21) Stop getting so involved
in everyone's personal prob-
lems that you lose precious
time with loved ones. Re-
member, even the Supreme
Court closes for the holi-
days.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21) All signs point to a
bright holiday, with all of
those pesky problems finally
resolved in your favor Share
the good times with people
you love and, of course, who
love you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to
Jan. 19) Your plans should
not be set in stone and ce-
mented over. Leave some
openings in case you need to
make changes. Spend the
holidays with your nearest
and dearest.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to
Feb. 18) Surprise! This holi-
day finds you on the receiv-
ing end of the generosity of
those who are usually the
recipients of so much that
you give so freely and lov-
ingly.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March
20) That piece of good news
assures that you'll be swim-
ming in clearer, calmer wa-
ters this holiday season.
There might be a storm or
two ahead, but you'll
weather it all in fine style.
BORN THIS WEEK: You
have a flair for seeing things
as you'd like them to be, as
well as a gift for turning your
perceptions into reality.

PUN



Next Thursday is the
first day of winter.
Here in Florida it
doesn't make a whole lot of
difference with pleasant
days and cool nights with a
few occasions of freezing.
But up north, there can be
many cold snowy days in-
terrupted by warmer days
of slush and rain.
In New Jersey we kept
NY Times newspapers on
the floor by the door so that
visitors could dry their
boots. Indeed, those were
the times that dry men's
soles.

For the birds
By now most birds have
flown south for the winter.
Young ones who have
never migrated before
sometimes have trouble fit-
ting in when the group
flies. They're required to
study up on the techniques
required to make the trip
smoothly and efficiently To


Revolutionary
During the Revolution-
ary War, British General
William Howe and his
troops fought in battles
around New York City. His
troops almost defeated
George Washington's army,
but Howe made a couple of
tactical errors. It was a bit-
ter winter in 1775 and he
wanted to go anywhere
where it was warm.
He took a short leave and
wound up in the New Or-
leans area. As he surveyed
the countryside he came
too close to a small body of
water and fell in. Some lo-
cals observed the general
floundering in the water
and rescued him.
Thereafter, the body of
water was known as
Howe's bayou.

Slippery
One winter morning, an
employee explained why
he had shown up for work
50 minutes late. "It was so
slippery out that for every
step I took ahead, I slipped
back two."
The boss eyed him suspi-
ciously "Oh, yeah? Then
how did you ever get
here?"
"I finally gave up," he
said, "and started for
home."


to warm you up
you just leave
Snowflakes garage this time?


The weather is great. My
car won't start running and
my nose won't stop.
Snowmen fall from
heaven unassembled.
Two blonds froze to
death at the drive in. They
went to see "Closed For
Winter"
Although skiing is popu-
lar in wintertime, it is also
a fall sport.
We should all take a les-
son from the snowflake. No
two of them are alike; yet
observe how well they co-
operate on major projects,
such as tying up traffic.

A moving situation
Sam and his wife Rhoda
live in Manchester, New
Hampshire. One winter
morning while listening to
the radio, they heard, "We
will have 8 to 10 inches of
snow today You must park
your car on the even num-
bered side of the street, so
the snowplow can get
through." Rhoda went out
and moved her car.
A week later they heard
the radio announcer say,
"We are expecting 10 to 12
inches of snow today You
must park your car on the
odd numbered side of the
street." Rhoda moved her
car again.
The next time they heard
the same announcement,
Rhoda said that she was
getting tired of moving the
car so often and really did-
n't want to do it.
Sam replied, "Why don't


it in the


Snowed


On her way home from
shopping, snow came down
so hard and fast that
Rhoda got lost and soon
was stuck, but managed to
get her car into the path a
snowplow just made. She
remembered what her dad
had once told her, "If you
ever get lost in a snow
storm, wait for a snow plow
and follow it."
She followed the plow
for about forty-five min-
utes. Finally the truck
driver got out and asked
her what she was doing.
She explained that her dad
had told her if she ever got
stuck in the snow, to follow
a plow.
The driver nodded and
said, "Well, I'm done with
the Walmart parking lot;
now you can follow me
over to Kmart."

Got you covered
Arriving on a flight to
Portland, Maine, lifetime
Florida residents John and
Ruth walked across a large
parking lot to get into their
rental car. The tempera-
ture was in the 20s making
them and the car very cold.
"I wonder if the car has
seat warmers?" Ruth
asked.
"It sure does," said John,
looking at the controls on
the dashboard. "Here it is,
rear defrosters."
Dick and his wife Jane
live in OakRun.

Two guilty in Marion court of spear fishing in Salt Springs Run


Two men who were charged
with a variety of freshwater fish-
ing violations have been adjudi-
cated guilty in Marion County
Court for numerous misde-
meanor counts stemming from
their illegally harvesting large-
mouth bass and blue crabs from
Salt Springs Run last May
Robert "Rhett" Deen Cowart
Jr, 28, of Bunnell was sentenced
to 30 days in jail and approxi-
mately $2,000 in fines.
Paul Aaron Griste, 33, of
Palatka was ordered to serve 52
days in jail, pay nearly $5,000 in
fines and forfeit a boat, motor
and trailer, which were used in
the crime.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) of-
ficers arrested Griste and Cowart
last spring for a variety of viola-
tions relating to illegally taking


and possessing largemouth bass,
blue crabs and bream in Salt
Springs Run in Marion County
On May 9, as FWC Officer
Dana Klein was checking Griste's
16-foot aluminum boat for the re-
quired safety equipment on Salt
Springs Run, she saw a spear gun
on his boat. It is illegal to fish in
fresh water with a spear gun in
Florida.
In the boat's livewell she found
mullet and tilapia, taken by bow
and arrow, which is a legal
method for those species. How-
ever, she found a blue crab in the
livewell that had been illegally
taken by spear gun.
Griste and Cowart denied hav-
ing any other fish on board. But,
as Klein continued to inspect the
vessel, she found 42 largemouth
bass, 14 bream and two blue
crabs hidden in a bag under a


wetsuit. All showed signs of hav-
ing been speared.
Klein arrested Griste and
booked him into the Marion
County Jail.
Cowart fled the scene but was
arrested by FWC officers the
next day in Flagler County on vi-
olation of parole.
He was booked into Flagler
County Jail. FWC officers later
served him with the fishing vio-
lations.
The illegally caught fish were
donated to a local charitable or-
ganization.
Salt Springs Run is a
renowned area for bass fishing,
providing both a great recre-
ational opportunity and an eco-
nomic boost to the area.
Most people who fish there do
it legally Unfortunately, some
just don't follow the rules, Klein


said.
"It is tremendously gratifying
to see that Cowart and Griste
have been ordered to pay for
their crimes. I really appreciate
the judge's actions and the hard
work by the state attorney's of-
fice," said Klein. "Not only does
this kind of enormous illegal har-
vest impact present-day fishing,
it can also adversely impact fu-


ture bass populations."
If you know of illegal fishing,
hunting, wildlife or boating ac-
tivity, please report it to the
FWC's Wildlife Alert Hotline.
The number is 888-404-3922 and
is open 24-7.
Callers may remain anony-
mous and could be eligible for a
reward if their information leads
to an arrest.
