Stevin Roopnarine, 23, of Southwest 105th Street, whose occupation is listed as a phlebotomist, is accused of killing Lavar Watson of Volusia County. According to the probable cause affidavit, deputies with the Marion County Sheriffs Office went to Summerfield Monday, Dec. 26, to investigate a report of a man lying beside the road. The body had obvious signs of trauma, and an autopsy later revealed three bullet wounds to the back of the head and a fourth gunshot wound to his shoulder. At about the same time, a female talking to the Ocala Police Department said she had witnessed a murder. Her vehicle showed signs of blood, and contact was made with the deputies and the two cases were linked, according to the affidavit. She said she was hanging out with her friend, Roopnarine, while he completed his work as a mobile phlebotomist. While she waited for him, she made contact by telephone with Lavar Watson, and he agreed to meet her in Ocala so they could go on a date. She met him at a local theater complex, and he agreed to ride with them to Munroe to drop off the blood. After Roopnarine completed his tasks, according to the affidavit, he asked to be given a ride to a friends house near Summerfield, and the woman agreed to drive there. Watson was in the front seat and Roopnarine was in the back. Roopnarine showed her a message on his phone that he was going to take Watsons wallet. Shortly after, she pulled up to a stop sign in a dark intersection and heard Watson yell an expletive, and then she saw Roopnarine shoot Watson. They both went through his pockets, removing his wallet, money and other items. The body was left by the side of the road on Southeast 51st Avenue in the 13500 block. Roopnarine was located later, and began to provide a timeline for the incident. However, he said, the woman was the one who first shot Watson. Roopnarine said he grabbed the gun from her and shot the victim again. He was arrested and charged with the two felonies. He is being held without bond. A sheriffs office spokesman said no charges have been filed against the female witness, but that the investigation is continuing. Bradd Clark, the fire chief of Owasso, Oklahoma, has accepted the position of Ocala Fire Rescue Chief. Clark is expected to begin his new duties on Feb. 1 and will succeed John DeIorio. We are pleased to offer this position to Chief Clark, said Catherine Cameron, Ocala Assistant City Manager for Public Services, who headed the negotiations. He has a very impressive resume and I believe he will be an excellent fit for Ocala. From 2005 until present, Clark served as chief of the Owasso, Okla., fire department where he oversaw a department of 54 employees. From 20012005, he was the fire chief of Claremore, Okla. Fire Department, and from 1997 to 2001 he was the chief of the Sand Springs, Okla. Fire Department. He holds a masters degree in fire & emergency management administration and an undergraduate degree in fire protection & safety from Oklahoma State University. Clarks salary will be $106,000. County parks officials seek old pics, infoThe earliest recorded baseball games at Orange Lake Community Park took place in 1918. The land encompassed by W.H. Willoughby Park once belonged to a farmer and preacher from Alabama. County parks are rich in history, and a Marion County department wants to preserve as much of it as possible. Marion County Parks and Recreation is inviting residents to assist in its collection of historical park information and photographs by sharing any little known fact or visual about a county park.

CERTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The recreational and commercial harvest of tiger sharks and smooth, scalloped and great hammerhead sharks will be prohibited in Florida state waters beginning Jan. 1. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved the management change at its Nov. 16 Commission meeting in an effort to further protect these top predators. The new measures also prohibit the possession, sale and exchange of tiger sharks and great, scalloped and smooth hammerhead sharks harvested from state waters. These sharks can still be caught and released in state waters and can be taken in adjacent federal waters. Prohibited species that die while on the line after being caught in state waters should be returned to the water immediately. The FWC is also working on an educational campaign highlighting fishing and handling techniques that increase the survival rate of sharks that are caught and released while ensuring the safety of the anglers targeting them. These techniques include: Use tackle heavy enough to land a fish quickly, reducing exhaustion. Release the fish while it is in the water when possible. Use a de-hooking device to remove hooks safely. Use non-stainless steel hooks that can dissolve if they remain in a fish. Use non-offset circle hooks to avoid gut-hooking a fish. Florida waters are considered essential habitat for these and other species of shark, especially juveniles and pregnant females. Shark fishing has been strictly regulated in Florida since 1992, with a one-shark-per-person, two-sharks-pervessel daily bag limit for all recreational and commercial harvesters and a ban on shark finning. Roughly two-dozen overfished, vulnerable or rare shark species are catch-and-release only in Florida waters.

Sunday is New Years Day sleeping in, watching sports on TV, and nibbling on snacks all day. Sleeping in is often necessary following the preceding evenings celebrations. By looking at past year-end holidays, todays column gives you an idea of what may be ahead.A New Years wishOn New Years Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. It turned out rather embarrassing. As the clock struck midnight the bartender was almost crushed to death.Nothing to complain aboutIt was New Years Day, and I had planned to spend it watching football. My wife, however, had other ideas, resulting in my serving time at a family dinner. When the coast was clear, I sneaked away and turned on the ball game. A few minutes later, my wife came by. Whats the score? she asked. Nothing-nothing at the end of the third quarter, I replied. See? she said. You didnt miss a thing. Tebow doesnt do anything until the last two minutes.All WelcomeThe New Years Eve party had turned into a regular marathon with numerous guests coming and going. At one point, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to the bar in the basement. He sat there happily for a couple of hours before something dawned on him. You know, he confided to his host, I wasnt even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests cars are blocking my driveway. The guest continued, My wifes been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved.ShotsWhen they were late to the party, they were beaten to the punch. Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Do you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Few know that New Years Eve is named after our Biblical foremother. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. This year my wife gave me a new piece of kitchen equipment. So I will be celebrating my New Years Sieve. The rest of you will have to sift for yourselves. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 366 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. The high jumper is looking forward to 2012 because it is a leap year. Were so broke, my wife and I stayed home and toasted the New Year. She had rye and I had whole wheat. A high resolution is a promise made on New Years Eve.ManlyI think women get more excited about New Years Eve than men. If you think about it, you can see why. What do you do on New Years Eve? You drink too much and make a lot of promises you dont keep. You see, men do that all the time, its called dating. Tis the seasonAt the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom always yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season.Pun Alley resolutionThis column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, December 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10 WORDS $8.20 + 44 A WORD (Includes Online) = TOT AL For your convenience, mail with payments to South Marion Citizen office at 8810 SW SR 200, Unit 104, Ocala, FL 34481 or call...Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses CallTollFree1-877-676-1403 CLASSIFIEDAD SMC_CLASS_AD_FORM_3_9_11 T odays Ne w Ads AUTO SW AP/ Corral CAR SHOW Sumter County Fairgrounds SUMTER SW AP MEETS Jan. 1, 2012 1-800-438-8559 Prof essional MANAGERS NEEDEDExp. pr eferr ed but not r equir ed, training pr ovided. 401(k) and medical.

But you'd be wise to take this one step at a time to allow new developments to come through. GEMINI ( May 21 to June 20) You're almost ready to make a commitment. A lingering doubt or two, however, should be resolved before you move ahead. An associate could provide important answers.

Go slowly and stay alert. LE O ( July 23 to A ugust 22) Your new goal looks promising, and your golden touch does much to enhance its prospects for success. In your private life, Cupid does his best to make your new relationship special.

Each year I go kicking and screaming into the New Year, and not because I am against change. My pants pocket is full of change. I simply cannot remember to change the year on the checks I write until May. By the time, I remember the correct year I have forgotten to make deposits into my checking account. I need a reality check, which with any luck will not bounce as high as my checkbook. That is not the only reason I hesitate going into a new year. The biggest reason has to do with the mistakes I made during the old year. Looking back over the old year, I worry that my blunders were not as bad as they could have been. Did I make all the gaffes I possibly could? Did I fill my quota? What is my quota, anyway? For many people, the New Year offers the opportunity to start over again. Actually, what happens is people simply make new mistakes curiously similar to the mistakes made during the old year. If I have any resolution for the New Year it would be to perfect the mistakes I have already made. I do not see any sense in making new bloopers when I can easily requisition the old ones for duty during the New Year. And what is wrong with my old mistakes? The only thing I can think of is that I did not work hard enough to make the most of them. It is one thing to make a mistake, but it is quite another thing to perfect the art of making a mistake so that you do not have to repeat it ever again. Too many amateurs have given mistake-making a bad name. Most of my mistakes have been so poorly discharged that in the coming New Year I will have to redo many of them. And, frankly, I am tired of it all. I am anxious to move on to new areas of mistake making. I am convinced there are faux pas to make that I have not dreamed of at this point in my life. Believe me, I have been dreaming. Actually, the gracious mistress of the Parsonage things they are all nightmares. However, my horsing around is not limited to the nighttime. With that in mind, my resolution for the New Year is to make sure all mistakes I make (and there will be plenty, I assure you) will be as thorough as possible. I refuse to execute any mistake before its time. Some mistakes take lots of time to fully mature, but when its time comes, I want to make sure it is implemented as smoothly and as perfectly as possible. If I am any judge of character, the majority of people will not make any new mistakes this coming New Year. Oh, they think they are making new mistakes but in reality, they are dusting off old ones and re-dating them for the current year. What a waste of time, in my opinion. For those who take mistake-making seriously, allow me to offer some help to guide this pursuit in the coming New Year. Look back over the old year and make a list of all of the mistakes you have made. If you are a husband, solicit help from your wife, who will be able to remember all of those mistakes you have forgotten. (Not to mention one or two you did not make.) Go over each mistake on your list and determine if it needs repeated for the New Year. It does not make sense in doing new mistakes if you are not finished with the old ones. Nothing is more disheartening than a half-baked mistake. For every mistake from the previous year not needing repeat, place a nice red star in front of it. That mistake can now go into your Hall of Blame, which you will never have to repeat again. Of course, you will have some mistakes, even though they have been perfectly executed are well worth repeating. You know which ones they are. Dont you? Now look at all of those mistakes listed for repeating during the New Year. Prioritize them so you can begin the New Year with a good plan. As you prioritize this list, think of ways in which you can improve on your mistakes over the past year. No satisfaction compares with doing something as good as you can. One mans blunder is another mans gaffe. Everyone generates mistakes, which is healthy. What is unhealthy is thinking you have not made any mistakes, which is a mistake. Some people have the strange idea that they live a completely mistake free life. A mistake well executed is a mistake never needing repeating. During the New Year, execute as many mistakes as your conscience will allow. The Bible, an authority on mistakes, says this; If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:8-10 KJV.) The great hope we have is that there is no mistake bigger than Gods ability to forgive.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Snyder City warning of bogus callsOcala Utility Services (OUS) has received reports that some of its customers have been getting bogus telephone calls that utility payments are overdue. The calls can be particularly convincing because the caller identification function on phones identifies the caller as OUS. When they call the number listed, it actually goes to OUS offices. Typically in scams such as this, customers are asked to make a payment using a credit card number. OUS Customer Service Director Terry Austin suggests that if customers have any suspicion at all about the legitimacy of the call they are receiving, hang up and call 629-CITY (2489).

Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com Time Magazines 2011 person-of-the-year committee chose The Protester a masked and anonymous symbol for discontented folks around the world, who spent this year exclaiming loudly Were mad as hell, and were not going to take this any more! Unlike more aggressive protesters in other countries, our occupy-something dissenters havent collapsed any stock exchanges or bodies of government. However, next year isnt even young yet. Theres plenty of time and opportunity for disorganized disapprovers to demonstrate during an election year. Union protesters werent successful in Wisconsin and Ohio this year, so they switched their strategy to an old-fashioned legal action. They filed petitions to recall the government officials they believe have done them wrong. Our rule of law is alive and slow, which is not as lively or invigorating as an old fashioned raucous protest. Political primary season followed by party conventions and campaign rallies will be fertile circumstances for protesters to renew their efforts to win the hearts and minds of American voters. Should we be concerned? We forget that the founding fathers of our nation were protesters and revolutionaries. Some of them believed periodic turmoil is healthy for a representative republic. Most of the time, our modern method of being revolutionary is voting a sizeable group of Congress members out of office in a single election. Their replacements may be worse, you say. Yes they could, and many will be as bad or worse if left in office too long. As a spoiled and pampered society most citizens are no longer culturally equipped to be demonstrative revolutionaries. We doubt even members of the NRA would be willing to spend a winter making burlap socks and living in a hut at Valley Forge, while waiting for Congress to supply shoes and food. We once had a neighbor who became disturbed by the changing world about him and ran for a municipal office using a campaign slogan Lets keep our town the way it used to be. As his silly slogan revealed, the town was already not the way it used to be, but our neighbor couldnt believe it could never be the same again. He received a few votes, most likely from family members. Thomas Wolfe observed in his popular novel titled You Cant Go Home Again that we cant go back to our families, to our childhoods, to our dreams, or to old forms and systems which once seemed everlasting, but which are changing constantly, to escape both time and memory. About our nation, Wolfe said The paradox of America is that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement. Sometimes however it is difficult to accept that this too shall pass. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, December 30, 2011 Here's another one of those reasons why not only do I not fly but I don't want my grandkids flying, either. Recently, a 9-year-old girl was put on a Southwest Airlines plane in Nashville, Tennessee, to visit her relatives in New York. Her flight had scheduled stops in Columbus, Ohio, (I've been there, it's not exactly the hub of the universe) and Baltimore, Maryland, before going on to LaGuardia Airport in New York. Unfortunately, weather intervened. The plane was diverted to Cleveland, Ohio, and then she went to Baltimore. But that meant a change of planes in Baltimore, because the schedule had made her late, and when her scheduled flight arrived in New York, she wasn't on it. She spent five hours at the Baltimore airport as Southwest rebooked her. To their credit, the airline people took care of her. The attendant took her to a snack shop, and later the pilot bought her dinner. Meanwhile, though, no one told her parents in Nashville or her grandparents in New York where she was, and that started a frantic search by the family. Eventually she got to LaGuardia, the family was relieved, and Southwest was embarrassed. The ticket was refunded and there were vouchers given. Meanwhile, her mother said she will make the 17-hour drive to New York to pick her up she wasn't going to let her fly home. All of this brought back memories for me, but my memories are a little fonder. Back when I was 9, I flew from LaGuardia to St. Louis, Missouri, to spend a couple of weeks with my grandparents during the summer. They lived across the river in East St. Louis, Illinois. My parents had a two-week vacation every year and made the trip by auto, and this time they sent me ahead a couple of weeks, then drove out a couple of weeks later and I drove back with them. I thought it was quite an adventure, but I can appreciate now how anxious they must have been. I was, however on a nonstop flight, a TWA constellation, the ones with the three tails, and as near as I can remember it was uneventful. It's a good thing I didn't know then what I know now. It was a good visit. Even then I loved baseball, and I remember my late Aunt Phyllis taking me, with a couple of friends of hers, to see a doubleheader between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Browns. It was the Browns' last season in St. Louis they became the Baltimore Orioles the next year. My grandparents took me to a outdoor beer garden one evening, and I played horseshoes with some of the locals. Much to my parents' dismay, they also taught me to make highballs, and I was a bartender when they arrived and a bunch of friends came over into my grandparents' finished basement (no air conditioning in those days). I never used that knowledge of bartending again alas, a career opportunity lost. But back to Chloe, the little girl who got a tour of the Baltimore airport she didn't expect. The story didn't say if she was as upset as her relatives, but at least it had a happy ending. That doesn't change my opinion of flying, though. As I've said before, If I don't drive, I don't go.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

Thanks to a junk-food culture and sedentary lifestyle, one third of all Americans are obese, with the current trajectory on track for half of the U.S. population to be obese by 2030. The alarming rise in obesity among Americans is far more serious than bulging waistlines. It is a significant health problem. Studies estimate the rise in obesity could lead to millions of more cases of heart disease and stroke, and more than half a million extra cancer cases in the United States all of which would balloon health care costs. Even more alarming is the rise in child obesity. Child obesity has increased in American children from 6.5 percent in the 1990s to around 30 percent today with an accompanying rise in the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, liver diseases, asthma and sleep apnea. Since obese children have a 70 percent chance of being obese as adults, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. To combat child obesity, a healthy diet and physical activity are key. To its credit, Florida has promoted healthy eating habits with nutritional menus in school cafeterias and mandated one semester of physical education every year for middle school students. A bill (HB 4057) introduced by Republican State Rep. Larry Metz, however, would eliminate the state-mandated middle school physical education requirement in favor of reserving to local school districts the decision to offer physical education. Given the alarming upward trend in child obesity and its long-term health and financial consequences, Rep. Metzs bill is misguided. Not surprisingly, concerned health professionals are speaking out against Metzs proposal. Dr. Ralph Sacco, past president of the American Heart Association and professor of neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, warned, If we dont get our middle school children being physically active as early as possible, we run the risk of more obesity and more bad habits. Dr. Keith Ayoob, associate professor of pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine also noted, kids who are more physically fit are better able to focus on academics. Theres also good evidence that in school districts where there are regular recess periods, there are fewer diagnoses of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder). With research affirming a decrease in daily energy expenditure without a concomitant decrease in total energy consumption is a key factor for rising child obesity, physical education indisputably pays long-term health dividends. Nevertheless, the focus on the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) and a constrained budget environment strongly suggest some Florida school districts would follow the national trend and unwisely opt to eliminate middle school physical education. Accordingly, Florida lawmakers are urged not to support Rep. Metzs bill since it has the potential to do far more harm than good for the long-term health of Florida students.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Who says economy's bad?It seems everyone, mainly Republicans and shirkers, say the economy is bad. If so, where has all the money come from these past few months. Black Friday set all sorts of sales records and on Dec. 26 the news reports stated that spending over the Christmas season was up by $2-3 billion dollars, the highest since 2007 when the Republicans were using the White House. In fact, since Obama has been in the White House annual spending has been on the rise. Now if spending is on the rise that means people have money. Unemployment, seems to be a moniker used by the media. Are unemployment figures accurate? Unemployment is going down. I recall when I lived in Florida the first time many years ago and was a Medicare and Blue Cross auditor, I traveled around Lake Okeechobee to audit those hospitals. Of course the hospital administrator became good friends as did many of their board members. I will never forget executives with the sugar companies, south of the lake, telling me they had to import workers from the Caribbean islands to cut sugar cane, because African Americans felt it was beneath them to work in the fields. A real start on immigration. I'll bet there are thousands of people today, who refuse jobs they don't like. Add to that people whip are on welfare and you get very distorted figures. It's been reported in the media lately there are more single parents than married parents. Wow, why? Could it be a lack of maturity or just animal instincts. There are women on welfare who have as many as seven children each with a different father. That doesn't say much for our society today. Should these people be on welfare? Absolutely not. They should be working instead of spending so, much time in bed. Years ago when I was managing and owning businesses, those who were unemployed had to make at least 10 documented job applications a week for a job before they were granted unemployment. They had to try. I'm wondering, with the permissive society we have today, are people really trying. It seems the media only searches out specific unemployed people to interview. All those Republicans out there who are beating up on Obama should take lessons from him. Remember, Obama's health care program takes people off of the welfare roles for health care. Think about that when you pay your taxes, if you pay taxes. Bill Ford, OcalaEvery vote should countBefore we can have a legitimate election in the good old USA we must have an election where every vote counts. We make sure that foreign countries have legal elections but when it comes to our country it's too much work. Presently the old fashioned electoral college decides who can be elected rather than the popular vote of American citizens. Back when the pony express or the railroad was our means of communication we at that time decided that an electoral college was the most efficient means to decide elections. Now that we have electronic communications through instant messages, E-mails and computers we should allow that every vote counts. Our military, people on vacation, retirees who may be housebound or anyone else who may have a legitimate reason for not voting in person on Election Day should have an opportunity to vote. If my memory serves me correct, we have even fought wars to protect this right so why are Americans excluded. We should also get rid of the rules where the majority vote of any party in any state carries the electoral votes for the entire state. We are not serving the voting citizens of our country when their vote does not count if they live in a blue state or a red state. Each state should be a red, white and blue state and every vote should count. There should be no super delegates who could decide an election over the majority vote of individuals throughout our whole country. Who is going to stand up for the rights of American citizens, certainly not our elected representatives?

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 The other day I made a couple of purchases at a local department store. I really didnt pay very much attention to the transaction until I put away the receipt. For the love of me, I couldnt remember what one of the items was! I could account for the votive and candleholder but what was a non-ceramic home dcor accessory? I must have thought about that stupid $5.99 purchase for three days, wondering if indeed I was having a senior moment. In the old days, the clerk or cash register would record each item exactly for what it was, a pair of socks was a pair of socks not womens accessory which could be anything from scarves to hats to gloves! My angst finally ended when, out of the blue, it came to me! My $5.99 purchase was some sachet packets I put in my guest bath! How important is the simple act of remembering! At this time of the year when we stand forth to forge ahead, it is always a good thing to look back to see where weve been, to make an account of our past deeds so as to better face our future. Judaism has all sorts of things to help us remember. In fact, remembrance is a very big part of the Jewish faith. It is a thread that is woven throughout our culture and faith tying us to our past even as we move forward into the present. The idea of remembrance is closely tied to the beginnings of Jewish peoplehood with the remembering of the Exodus from Egypt. This single act of deliverance freed the Israelites from bondage and allowed them to pursue a path of free choice to worship the God of their ancestors. This event is remembered on all the festivals and Shabbat with the words of the Kiddush, or sanctification over wine. It is also played out during the Passover seder when other miracles and acts of deliverance are remembered.

The Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages is offering a Hebrew Reading Crash Course. The course is designed to teach those with little or no basic knowledge of the Hebrew language how to read Hebrew in six easy lessons. This time proven course will teach you to read Hebrew in only six weeks. We will be using text books (that will be provided) and power point presentations to get you used to the Hebrew letters, vowels and order so that you will be fluent in them at the end of the six weeks. The Hebrew Reading Crash Course focuses on teaching the Hebrew alphabet and reading skills. In only six, one hour long sessions, participants learn to read Hebrew and follow along in a prayer book. All participants will receive a copy of a Hebrew primer. The class will take place six Mondays starting Jan. 2 at 10:30 a.m. To register please visit www.jewishmairon.org. For more information about the Hebrew Reading Crash Course please call us at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org. Jews are exhorted to Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy. Now that the Israelites were free, they were able to have a day of rest to remember their travails in Egypt. They also could observe a day, which honored creation and the fact that God rested on the seventh day from creating the world. In other aspects of Jewish life, Jews remember their deceased with special prayer services called yiskor. (The word comes from the Hebrew meaning may God remember) At the time of the major festivals and at the anniversary of the death, loved ones are remembered in cherished moments of prayer. There is no greater time of memorial, I believe, than on Yom Ha Shoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. Occurring in the spring, right after Passover, this solemn day memorializes the Six Million, the number of Jews murdered by the Nazis reign of terror. Amidst slogans of Never Again and Never Forget, programs, services and vigils seek to commemorate the darkest hours in Jewish history. The Jewish liturgy is peppered with the theme of remembrance as well. The central prayer, The Amidah, calls on God to remember the deeds of our patriarchs and matriarchs so that we too may merit Gods love and compassion. The Rosh Ha Shanah service has a special section dealing with the blowing of the shofar, which contains verses containing references to remembering events in Biblical history. On the Jewish New Year, the story of the near sacrifice of Isaac is recalled, averted by an angel and a ram whose horn was stuck in a thicket and is offered instead. The sound of a rams horn is remembered for its blast heard at Mt. Sinai, a blast that has echoed and has been remembered through the ages. And the Jewish New Year is known as Yom HaZicaron, the Day of Remembrance, when we remember our past deeds and try to improve on these deeds by repenting and leading a more godly life. In the midst of the joyous and often riotous holiday of Purim when Jews celebrate their deliverance from wicked Haman, there is the passage in the Torah to remember Amalek. Amalek was a tribe who preyed on the stragglers, women, children, aged ones as they marched through the desert on their way to the Promised Land. This tribe of marauders would attack these defenseless ones because they were an easy target. Legend has it that Haman and Hitler were descendants from this tribe. Many times the Torah repeats: Remember you were strangers in the Land of Egypt. This statement seeks to sensitize the Israelites to the plight of others and is the great cry for social justice that prefaces commandments for caring for the less fortunate. As we stand on the threshold of the secular year of 2012, let us look back on our accomplishments and failures and strive for a better year ahead. Let us remember our past with pride but let us also move forward into the future. May the power of remembrance girdle us with strength to face the year ahead. Remembering is a good thing. It strengthens us, gives us direction and tries us to a continuum of our past. Now, if I could only remember where I put my car keys ..Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, December 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Hebrew reading course set BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comOTOW learning opportunities and play auditions await residents and guests.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities begins its seventh year of the life-long learning excellence next week.

The Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages is offering a Hebrew Reading Crash Course. The course is designed to teach those with little or no basic knowledge of the Hebrew language how to read Hebrew in six easy lessons. This time proven course will teach you to read Hebrew in only six weeks. We will be using text books (that will be provided) and power point presentations to get you used to the Hebrew letters, vowels and order so that you will be fluent in them at the end of the six weeks. The Hebrew Reading Crash Course focuses on teaching the Hebrew alphabet and reading skills. In only six, one hour long sessions, participants learn to read Hebrew and follow along in a prayer book. All participants will receive a copy of a Hebrew primer. The class will take place six Mondays starting Jan. 2 at 10:30 a.m. To register please visit www.jewishmairon.org. For more information about the Hebrew Reading Crash Course please call us at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org. Jews are exhorted to Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy. Now that the Israelites were free, they were able to have a day of rest to remember their travails in Egypt. They also could observe a day, which honored creation and the fact that God rested on the seventh day from creating the world. In other aspects of Jewish life, Jews remember their deceased with special prayer services called yiskor. (The word comes from the Hebrew meaning may God remember) At the time of the major festivals and at the anniversary of the death, loved ones are remembered in cherished moments of prayer. There is no greater time of memorial, I believe, than on Yom Ha Shoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. Occurring in the spring, right after Passover, this solemn day memorializes the Six Million, the number of Jews murdered by the Nazis reign of terror. Amidst slogans of Never Again and Never Forget, programs, services and vigils seek to commemorate the darkest hours in Jewish history. The Jewish liturgy is peppered with the theme of remembrance as well. The central prayer, The Amidah, calls on God to remember the deeds of our patriarchs and matriarchs so that we too may merit Gods love and compassion. The Rosh Ha Shanah service has a special section dealing with the blowing of the shofar, which contains verses containing references to remembering events in Biblical history. On the Jewish New Year, the story of the near sacrifice of Isaac is recalled, averted by an angel and a ram whose horn was stuck in a thicket and is offered instead. The sound of a rams horn is remembered for its blast heard at Mt. Sinai, a blast that has echoed and has been remembered through the ages. And the Jewish New Year is known as Yom HaZicaron, the Day of Remembrance, when we remember our past deeds and try to improve on these deeds by repenting and leading a more godly life. In the midst of the joyous and often riotous holiday of Purim when Jews celebrate their deliverance from wicked Haman, there is the passage in the Torah to remember Amalek. Amalek was a tribe who preyed on the stragglers, women, children, aged ones as they marched through the desert on their way to the Promised Land. This tribe of marauders would attack these defenseless ones because they were an easy target. Legend has it that Haman and Hitler were descendants from this tribe. Many times the Torah repeats: Remember you were strangers in the Land of Egypt. This statement seeks to sensitize the Israelites to the plight of others and is the great cry for social justice that prefaces commandments for caring for the less fortunate. As we stand on the threshold of the secular year of 2012, let us look back on our accomplishments and failures and strive for a better year ahead. Let us remember our past with pride but let us also move forward into the future. May the power of remembrance girdle us with strength to face the year ahead. Remembering is a good thing. It strengthens us, gives us direction and tries us to a continuum of our past. Now, if I could only remember where I put my car keys ..Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, December 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Hebrew reading course set BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comOTOW learning opportunities and play auditions await residents and guests.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities begins its seventh year of the life-long learning excellence next week.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 The other day I made a couple of purchases at a local department store. I really didnt pay very much attention to the transaction until I put away the receipt. For the love of me, I couldnt remember what one of the items was! I could account for the votive and candleholder but what was a non-ceramic home dcor accessory? I must have thought about that stupid $5.99 purchase for three days, wondering if indeed I was having a senior moment. In the old days, the clerk or cash register would record each item exactly for what it was, a pair of socks was a pair of socks not womens accessory which could be anything from scarves to hats to gloves! My angst finally ended when, out of the blue, it came to me! My $5.99 purchase was some sachet packets I put in my guest bath! How important is the simple act of remembering! At this time of the year when we stand forth to forge ahead, it is always a good thing to look back to see where weve been, to make an account of our past deeds so as to better face our future. Judaism has all sorts of things to help us remember. In fact, remembrance is a very big part of the Jewish faith. It is a thread that is woven throughout our culture and faith tying us to our past even as we move forward into the present. The idea of remembrance is closely tied to the beginnings of Jewish peoplehood with the remembering of the Exodus from Egypt. This single act of deliverance freed the Israelites from bondage and allowed them to pursue a path of free choice to worship the God of their ancestors. This event is remembered on all the festivals and Shabbat with the words of the Kiddush, or sanctification over wine.

Who says economy's bad?It seems everyone, mainly Republicans and shirkers, say the economy is bad. If so, where has all the money come from these past few months. Black Friday set all sorts of sales records and on Dec. 26 the news reports stated that spending over the Christmas season was up by $2-3 billion dollars, the highest since 2007 when the Republicans were using the White House. In fact, since Obama has been in the White House annual spending has been on the rise. Now if spending is on the rise that means people have money. Unemployment, seems to be a moniker used by the media. Are unemployment figures accurate? Unemployment is going down. I recall when I lived in Florida the first time many years ago and was a Medicare and Blue Cross auditor, I traveled around Lake Okeechobee to audit those hospitals. Of course the hospital administrator became good friends as did many of their board members. I will never forget executives with the sugar companies, south of the lake, telling me they had to import workers from the Caribbean islands to cut sugar cane, because African Americans felt it was beneath them to work in the fields. A real start on immigration. I'll bet there are thousands of people today, who refuse jobs they don't like. Add to that people whip are on welfare and you get very distorted figures. It's been reported in the media lately there are more single parents than married parents. Wow, why? Could it be a lack of maturity or just animal instincts. There are women on welfare who have as many as seven children each with a different father. That doesn't say much for our society today. Should these people be on welfare? Absolutely not. They should be working instead of spending so, much time in bed. Years ago when I was managing and owning businesses, those who were unemployed had to make at least 10 documented job applications a week for a job before they were granted unemployment. They had to try. I'm wondering, with the permissive society we have today, are people really trying. It seems the media only searches out specific unemployed people to interview. All those Republicans out there who are beating up on Obama should take lessons from him. Remember, Obama's health care program takes people off of the welfare roles for health care. Think about that when you pay your taxes, if you pay taxes. Bill Ford, OcalaEvery vote should countBefore we can have a legitimate election in the good old USA we must have an election where every vote counts. We make sure that foreign countries have legal elections but when it comes to our country it's too much work. Presently the old fashioned electoral college decides who can be elected rather than the popular vote of American citizens. Back when the pony express or the railroad was our means of communication we at that time decided that an electoral college was the most efficient means to decide elections. Now that we have electronic communications through instant messages, E-mails and computers we should allow that every vote counts. Our military, people on vacation, retirees who may be housebound or anyone else who may have a legitimate reason for not voting in person on Election Day should have an opportunity to vote. If my memory serves me correct, we have even fought wars to protect this right so why are Americans excluded. We should also get rid of the rules where the majority vote of any party in any state carries the electoral votes for the entire state. We are not serving the voting citizens of our country when their vote does not count if they live in a blue state or a red state. Each state should be a red, white and blue state and every vote should count. There should be no super delegates who could decide an election over the majority vote of individuals throughout our whole country. Who is going to stand up for the rights of American citizens, certainly not our elected representatives?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) stated he would not call the Senate back into session. The standoff ended later in the week when the House agreed to pass the twomonth bill and the Senate agreed to name conferees to work out a yearlong extension. Republican Rep.

Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com Time Magazines 2011 person-of-the-year committee chose The Protester a masked and anonymous symbol for discontented folks around the world, who spent this year exclaiming loudly Were mad as hell, and were not going to take this any more! Unlike more aggressive protesters in other countries, our occupy-something dissenters havent collapsed any stock exchanges or bodies of government. However, next year isnt even young yet. Theres plenty of time and opportunity for disorganized disapprovers to demonstrate during an election year. Union protesters werent successful in Wisconsin and Ohio this year, so they switched their strategy to an old-fashioned legal action. They filed petitions to recall the government officials they believe have done them wrong. Our rule of law is alive and slow, which is not as lively or invigorating as an old fashioned raucous protest. Political primary season followed by party conventions and campaign rallies will be fertile circumstances for protesters to renew their efforts to win the hearts and minds of American voters. Should we be concerned? We forget that the founding fathers of our nation were protesters and revolutionaries. Some of them believed periodic turmoil is healthy for a representative republic. Most of the time, our modern method of being revolutionary is voting a sizeable group of Congress members out of office in a single election. Their replacements may be worse, you say. Yes they could, and many will be as bad or worse if left in office too long. As a spoiled and pampered society most citizens are no longer culturally equipped to be demonstrative revolutionaries. We doubt even members of the NRA would be willing to spend a winter making burlap socks and living in a hut at Valley Forge, while waiting for Congress to supply shoes and food. We once had a neighbor who became disturbed by the changing world about him and ran for a municipal office using a campaign slogan Lets keep our town the way it used to be. As his silly slogan revealed, the town was already not the way it used to be, but our neighbor couldnt believe it could never be the same again. He received a few votes, most likely from family members. Thomas Wolfe observed in his popular novel titled You Cant Go Home Again that we cant go back to our families, to our childhoods, to our dreams, or to old forms and systems which once seemed everlasting, but which are changing constantly, to escape both time and memory. About our nation, Wolfe said The paradox of America is that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement. Sometimes however it is difficult to accept that this too shall pass. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, December 30, 2011 Here's another one of those reasons why not only do I not fly but I don't want my grandkids flying, either. Recently, a 9-year-old girl was put on a Southwest Airlines plane in Nashville, Tennessee, to visit her relatives in New York. Her flight had scheduled stops in Columbus, Ohio, (I've been there, it's not exactly the hub of the universe) and Baltimore, Maryland, before going on to LaGuardia Airport in New York. Unfortunately, weather intervened. The plane was diverted to Cleveland, Ohio, and then she went to Baltimore. But that meant a change of planes in Baltimore, because the schedule had made her late, and when her scheduled flight arrived in New York, she wasn't on it. She spent five hours at the Baltimore airport as Southwest rebooked her. To their credit, the airline people took care of her. The attendant took her to a snack shop, and later the pilot bought her dinner. Meanwhile, though, no one told her parents in Nashville or her grandparents in New York where she was, and that started a frantic search by the family. Eventually she got to LaGuardia, the family was relieved, and Southwest was embarrassed. The ticket was refunded and there were vouchers given. Meanwhile, her mother said she will make the 17-hour drive to New York to pick her up she wasn't going to let her fly home. All of this brought back memories for me, but my memories are a little fonder. Back when I was 9, I flew from LaGuardia to St. Louis, Missouri, to spend a couple of weeks with my grandparents during the summer. They lived across the river in East St. Louis, Illinois. My parents had a two-week vacation every year and made the trip by auto, and this time they sent me ahead a couple of weeks, then drove out a couple of weeks later and I drove back with them. I thought it was quite an adventure, but I can appreciate now how anxious they must have been. I was, however on a nonstop flight, a TWA constellation, the ones with the three tails, and as near as I can remember it was uneventful. It's a good thing I didn't know then what I know now. It was a good visit. Even then I loved baseball, and I remember my late Aunt Phyllis taking me, with a couple of friends of hers, to see a doubleheader between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Browns. It was the Browns' last season in St. Louis they became the Baltimore Orioles the next year. My grandparents took me to a outdoor beer garden one evening, and I played horseshoes with some of the locals. Much to my parents' dismay, they also taught me to make highballs, and I was a bartender when they arrived and a bunch of friends came over into my grandparents' finished basement (no air conditioning in those days). I never used that knowledge of bartending again alas, a career opportunity lost. But back to Chloe, the little girl who got a tour of the Baltimore airport she didn't expect. The story didn't say if she was as upset as her relatives, but at least it had a happy ending. That doesn't change my opinion of flying, though. As I've said before, If I don't drive, I don't go.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

Thanks to a junk-food culture and sedentary lifestyle, one third of all Americans are obese, with the current trajectory on track for half of the U.S. population to be obese by 2030. The alarming rise in obesity among Americans is far more serious than bulging waistlines. It is a significant health problem. Studies estimate the rise in obesity could lead to millions of more cases of heart disease and stroke, and more than half a million extra cancer cases in the United States all of which would balloon health care costs. Even more alarming is the rise in child obesity. Child obesity has increased in American children from 6.5 percent in the 1990s to around 30 percent today with an accompanying rise in the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, liver diseases, asthma and sleep apnea. Since obese children have a 70 percent chance of being obese as adults, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. To combat child obesity, a healthy diet and physical activity are key. To its credit, Florida has promoted healthy eating habits with nutritional menus in school cafeterias and mandated one semester of physical education every year for middle school students. A bill (HB 4057) introduced by Republican State Rep. Larry Metz, however, would eliminate the state-mandated middle school physical education requirement in favor of reserving to local school districts the decision to offer physical education. Given the alarming upward trend in child obesity and its long-term health and financial consequences, Rep. Metzs bill is misguided. Not surprisingly, concerned health professionals are speaking out against Metzs proposal. Dr. Ralph Sacco, past president of the American Heart Association and professor of neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, warned, If we dont get our middle school children being physically active as early as possible, we run the risk of more obesity and more bad habits. Dr. Keith Ayoob, associate professor of pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine also noted, kids who are more physically fit are better able to focus on academics. Theres also good evidence that in school districts where there are regular recess periods, there are fewer diagnoses of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder). With research affirming a decrease in daily energy expenditure without a concomitant decrease in total energy consumption is a key factor for rising child obesity, physical education indisputably pays long-term health dividends. Nevertheless, the focus on the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) and a constrained budget environment strongly suggest some Florida school districts would follow the national trend and unwisely opt to eliminate middle school physical education. Accordingly, Florida lawmakers are urged not to support Rep. Metzs bill since it has the potential to do far more harm than good for the long-term health of Florida students.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Each year I go kicking and screaming into the New Year, and not because I am against change. My pants pocket is full of change. I simply cannot remember to change the year on the checks I write until May. By the time, I remember the correct year I have forgotten to make deposits into my checking account. I need a reality check, which with any luck will not bounce as high as my checkbook. That is not the only reason I hesitate going into a new year. The biggest reason has to do with the mistakes I made during the old year. Looking back over the old year, I worry that my blunders were not as bad as they could have been. Did I make all the gaffes I possibly could? Did I fill my quota? What is my quota, anyway? For many people, the New Year offers the opportunity to start over again. Actually, what happens is people simply make new mistakes curiously similar to the mistakes made during the old year. If I have any resolution for the New Year it would be to perfect the mistakes I have already made. I do not see any sense in making new bloopers when I can easily requisition the old ones for duty during the New Year. And what is wrong with my old mistakes? The only thing I can think of is that I did not work hard enough to make the most of them. It is one thing to make a mistake, but it is quite another thing to perfect the art of making a mistake so that you do not have to repeat it ever again. Too many amateurs have given mistake-making a bad name. Most of my mistakes have been so poorly discharged that in the coming New Year I will have to redo many of them. And, frankly, I am tired of it all. I am anxious to move on to new areas of mistake making. I am convinced there are faux pas to make that I have not dreamed of at this point in my life. Believe me, I have been dreaming. Actually, the gracious mistress of the Parsonage things they are all nightmares. However, my horsing around is not limited to the nighttime. With that in mind, my resolution for the New Year is to make sure all mistakes I make (and there will be plenty, I assure you) will be as thorough as possible. I refuse to execute any mistake before its time. Some mistakes take lots of time to fully mature, but when its time comes, I want to make sure it is implemented as smoothly and as perfectly as possible. If I am any judge of character, the majority of people will not make any new mistakes this coming New Year. Oh, they think they are making new mistakes but in reality, they are dusting off old ones and re-dating them for the current year. What a waste of time, in my opinion. For those who take mistake-making seriously, allow me to offer some help to guide this pursuit in the coming New Year. Look back over the old year and make a list of all of the mistakes you have made. If you are a husband, solicit help from your wife, who will be able to remember all of those mistakes you have forgotten. (Not to mention one or two you did not make.) Go over each mistake on your list and determine if it needs repeated for the New Year. It does not make sense in doing new mistakes if you are not finished with the old ones. Nothing is more disheartening than a half-baked mistake. For every mistake from the previous year not needing repeat, place a nice red star in front of it. That mistake can now go into your Hall of Blame, which you will never have to repeat again. Of course, you will have some mistakes, even though they have been perfectly executed are well worth repeating. You know which ones they are. Dont you? Now look at all of those mistakes listed for repeating during the New Year. Prioritize them so you can begin the New Year with a good plan. As you prioritize this list, think of ways in which you can improve on your mistakes over the past year. No satisfaction compares with doing something as good as you can. One mans blunder is another mans gaffe. Everyone generates mistakes, which is healthy. What is unhealthy is thinking you have not made any mistakes, which is a mistake. Some people have the strange idea that they live a completely mistake free life. A mistake well executed is a mistake never needing repeating. During the New Year, execute as many mistakes as your conscience will allow. The Bible, an authority on mistakes, says this; If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:8-10 KJV.) The great hope we have is that there is no mistake bigger than Gods ability to forgive.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Snyder City warning of bogus callsOcala Utility Services (OUS) has received reports that some of its customers have been getting bogus telephone calls that utility payments are overdue. The calls can be particularly convincing because the caller identification function on phones identifies the caller as OUS. When they call the number listed, it actually goes to OUS offices. Typically in scams such as this, customers are asked to make a payment using a credit card number. OUS Customer Service Director Terry Austin suggests that if customers have any suspicion at all about the legitimacy of the call they are receiving, hang up and call 629-CITY (2489). Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com For your convenience we accept cash, checks, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Layawa y available. For more information call 1-866-342-0508.

Each player seemed to have a different strategy, some were successful and some were not as successful. The winners wereFirst Flight: 1st PlaceJan Tennant, 2nd PlaceDiana Galla; Second Flight: 1st Place tie Sheila Adams and Ginger Drake, 3rd PlacePatty Dougherty; Third Flight: 1st PlaceBarb Davis, 2nd Place tieMary Kay Frandsen and Cindy Kocher.

In each foursome, 2 players were "odd" and 2 were "even." On each odd numbered hole, only the scores of the two "odd" players counted and likewise for the even numbered holes. Of course, the players had to decide in advance whether to be "odd" or "even." It was interesting to say the least! The team of B.J. Lassiter, Diana Schmidt, Salita Timmermeyer and Patty Waddell won the game. The team of Vange Bell, Charlotte Green, Bette Johnson and Cindy Kocher were second. Third place went to the team of Sally Crass, Phyllis Oldfield, Brenda Raider and Ilene Simnowitz. Ilene Simnowitz made a chip-in on the 4th hole and Patty Waddell was "closest to the pin" on the 3rd hole. Congratulations to all! All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings.

Sunday is New Years Day sleeping in, watching sports on TV, and nibbling on snacks all day. Sleeping in is often necessary following the preceding evenings celebrations. By looking at past year-end holidays, todays column gives you an idea of what may be ahead.A New Years wishOn New Years Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. It turned out rather embarrassing. As the clock struck midnight the bartender was almost crushed to death.Nothing to complain aboutIt was New Years Day, and I had planned to spend it watching football. My wife, however, had other ideas, resulting in my serving time at a family dinner. When the coast was clear, I sneaked away and turned on the ball game. A few minutes later, my wife came by. Whats the score? she asked. Nothing-nothing at the end of the third quarter, I replied. See? she said. You didnt miss a thing. Tebow doesnt do anything until the last two minutes.All WelcomeThe New Years Eve party had turned into a regular marathon with numerous guests coming and going. At one point, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to the bar in the basement. He sat there happily for a couple of hours before something dawned on him. You know, he confided to his host, I wasnt even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests cars are blocking my driveway. The guest continued, My wifes been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved.ShotsWhen they were late to the party, they were beaten to the punch. Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Do you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Few know that New Years Eve is named after our Biblical foremother. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. This year my wife gave me a new piece of kitchen equipment. So I will be celebrating my New Years Sieve. The rest of you will have to sift for yourselves. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 366 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. The high jumper is looking forward to 2012 because it is a leap year. Were so broke, my wife and I stayed home and toasted the New Year. She had rye and I had whole wheat. A high resolution is a promise made on New Years Eve.ManlyI think women get more excited about New Years Eve than men. If you think about it, you can see why. What do you do on New Years Eve? You drink too much and make a lot of promises you dont keep. You see, men do that all the time, its called dating. Tis the seasonAt the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom always yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season.Pun Alley resolutionThis column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, December 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10 WORDS $8.20 + 44 A WORD (Includes Online) = TOT AL For your convenience, mail with payments to South Marion Citizen office at 8810 SW SR 200, Unit 104, Ocala, FL 34481 or call...Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses CallTollFree1-877-676-1403 CLASSIFIEDAD SMC_CLASS_AD_FORM_3_9_11 T odays Ne w Ads AUTO SW AP/ Corral CAR SHOW Sumter County Fairgrounds SUMTER SW AP MEETS Jan. 1, 2012 1-800-438-8559 Prof essional MANAGERS NEEDEDExp. pr eferr ed but not r equir ed, training pr ovided. 401(k) and medical.

CERTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The recreational and commercial harvest of tiger sharks and smooth, scalloped and great hammerhead sharks will be prohibited in Florida state waters beginning Jan. 1. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved the management change at its Nov. 16 Commission meeting in an effort to further protect these top predators. The new measures also prohibit the possession, sale and exchange of tiger sharks and great, scalloped and smooth hammerhead sharks harvested from state waters. These sharks can still be caught and released in state waters and can be taken in adjacent federal waters. Prohibited species that die while on the line after being caught in state waters should be returned to the water immediately. The FWC is also working on an educational campaign highlighting fishing and handling techniques that increase the survival rate of sharks that are caught and released while ensuring the safety of the anglers targeting them. These techniques include: Use tackle heavy enough to land a fish quickly, reducing exhaustion. Release the fish while it is in the water when possible. Use a de-hooking device to remove hooks safely. Use non-stainless steel hooks that can dissolve if they remain in a fish. Use non-offset circle hooks to avoid gut-hooking a fish. Florida waters are considered essential habitat for these and other species of shark, especially juveniles and pregnant females. Shark fishing has been strictly regulated in Florida since 1992, with a one-shark-per-person, two-sharks-pervessel daily bag limit for all recreational and commercial harvesters and a ban on shark finning. Roughly two-dozen overfished, vulnerable or rare shark species are catch-and-release only in Florida waters.

Stevin Roopnarine, 23, of Southwest 105th Street, whose occupation is listed as a phlebotomist, is accused of killing Lavar Watson of Volusia County. According to the probable cause affidavit, deputies with the Marion County Sheriffs Office went to Summerfield Monday, Dec. 26, to investigate a report of a man lying beside the road. The body had obvious signs of trauma, and an autopsy later revealed three bullet wounds to the back of the head and a fourth gunshot wound to his shoulder. At about the same time, a female talking to the Ocala Police Department said she had witnessed a murder. Her vehicle showed signs of blood, and contact was made with the deputies and the two cases were linked, according to the affidavit. She said she was hanging out with her friend, Roopnarine, while he completed his work as a mobile phlebotomist. While she waited for him, she made contact by telephone with Lavar Watson, and he agreed to meet her in Ocala so they could go on a date. She met him at a local theater complex, and he agreed to ride with them to Munroe to drop off the blood. After Roopnarine completed his tasks, according to the affidavit, he asked to be given a ride to a friends house near Summerfield, and the woman agreed to drive there. Watson was in the front seat and Roopnarine was in the back. Roopnarine showed her a message on his phone that he was going to take Watsons wallet. Shortly after, she pulled up to a stop sign in a dark intersection and heard Watson yell an expletive, and then she saw Roopnarine shoot Watson. They both went through his pockets, removing his wallet, money and other items. The body was left by the side of the road on Southeast 51st Avenue in the 13500 block. Roopnarine was located later, and began to provide a timeline for the incident. However, he said, the woman was the one who first shot Watson. Roopnarine said he grabbed the gun from her and shot the victim again. He was arrested and charged with the two felonies. He is being held without bond. A sheriffs office spokesman said no charges have been filed against the female witness, but that the investigation is continuing. Bradd Clark, the fire chief of Owasso, Oklahoma, has accepted the position of Ocala Fire Rescue Chief. Clark is expected to begin his new duties on Feb. 1 and will succeed John DeIorio. We are pleased to offer this position to Chief Clark, said Catherine Cameron, Ocala Assistant City Manager for Public Services, who headed the negotiations. He has a very impressive resume and I believe he will be an excellent fit for Ocala. From 2005 until present, Clark served as chief of the Owasso, Okla., fire department where he oversaw a department of 54 employees. From 20012005, he was the fire chief of Claremore, Okla. Fire Department, and from 1997 to 2001 he was the chief of the Sand Springs, Okla. Fire Department. He holds a masters degree in fire & emergency management administration and an undergraduate degree in fire protection & safety from Oklahoma State University. Clarks salary will be $106,000.

S unday is New Years Day sleeping in, watching sports on TV, and nibbling on snacks all day. Sleeping in is often necessary following the preceding evenings celebrations. By looking at past year-end holidays, todays column gives you an idea of what may be ahead. A New Years wishOn New Years Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. It turned out rather embarrassing. As the clock struck midnight the bartender was almost crushed to death. Nothing to complain about It was New Years Day, and I had planned to spend it watching football. My wife, however, had other ideas, resulting in my serving time at a family dinner. When the coast was clear, I sneaked away and turned on the ball game. A few minutes later, my wife came by. Whats the score? she asked. Nothing-nothing at the end of the third quarter, I replied. See? she said. You didnt miss a thing. Tebow doesnt do anything until the last two minutes. All WelcomeThe New Years Eve party had turned into a regular marathon with numerous guests coming and going. At one point, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to the bar in the basement. He sat there happily for a couple of hours before something dawned on him. You know, he confided to his host, I wasnt even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests cars are blocking my driveway. The guest continued, My wifes been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved. Shots When they were late to the party, they were beaten to the punch. Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Do you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Few know that New Years Eve is named after our Biblical foremother. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. This year my wife gave me a new piece of kitchen equipment. So I will be celebrating my New Years Sieve. The rest of you will have to sift for yourselves. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 366 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. The high jumper is looking forward to 2012 because it is a leap year. Were so broke, my wife and I stayed home and toasted the New Year. She had rye and I had whole wheat. A high resolution is a promise made on New Years Eve.ManlyI think women get more excited about New Years Eve than men. If you think about it, you can see why. What do you do on New Years Eve? You drink too much and make a lot of promises you dont keep. You see, men do that all the time, its called dating. Tis the season At the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom always yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season. Pun Alley resolutionThis column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week. Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, December 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10WORDS$8.20+44AWORD(IncludesOnline)=TOTAL For your convenience, mail with payments to South Marion Citizen office at 8810 SW SR 200, Unit 104, Ocala, FL 34481 or call...Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses CallTollFree1-877-676-1403 CLASSIFIEDAD SMC_CLASS_AD_FORM_3_9_11 Todays New Ads AUTO SWAP/ Corral CAR SHOW Sumter County Fairgrounds SUMTER SWAPMEETS Jan. 1, 2012 1-800-438-8559 Professional MANAGERS NEEDED Exp. preferred but not required, training provided. 401(k) and medical.

Take time to draw some deep breaths and relax before getting into your next project. A long-absent family member makes contact. TA U R US (A pril 20 to May 20) You're eager to move forward with a new challenge that suddenly dropped in your lap. But you'd be wise to take this one step at a time to allow new developments to come through. G E M I N I ( May 21 to June 20) You're almost ready to make a commitment. A lingering doubt or two, however, should be resolved before you move ahead. An associate could provide important answers. C A NC ER ( June 21 to July 22) Caution is still the watchword as you move closer toward a decision about a new situation. If you act too fast, you might miss some vital warning signs. Go slowly and stay alert. L E O ( July 23 to A ugust 22) Your new goal looks promising, and your golden touch does much to enhance its prospects for success. In your private life, Cupid does his best to make your new relationship special. VIR GO (A ugust 23 to Sep tember 22) That impatient side of yours is looking to goad you into moving before you're ready to take that big step. Stay calm and cool. Let things fall into place before you act. L I B RA ( September 23 to October 22) A legal matter you hoped could finally be settled could be a pesky problem for a while, until all the parties agree to stop disagreeing with each other. Be patient. SCO R P I O ( October 23 to November 21) Partnerships -personal or professional -which began before the new year take on new importance. They also reveal some previously hidden risks. So be warned. S A G ITTARI US ( Novem ber 22 to December 21) Your associates are firmly on your side, and that persistent problem that has caused you to delay some activities should soon be resolved to your satisfaction. C A P RI CO R N ( December 22 to January 19) Favorable changes continue to dominate, and you should be responding positively as they emerge. Someone wants to become more involved in what you're doing. AQ U ARI US ( January 20 to F ebruary 18) A friend wants to share a secret that could answer some questions you've wondered about for a long time. Meanwhile, travel aspects continue to be strong. P I SC E S (F ebruary 19 to March 20) Stay on your new course despite so-called well-meaning efforts to discourage you.

We are pleased to announce that veteran actor Brigid Chick will step in to direct. Brigid was born in England, worked for Pan Am as a stewardess and for Time-Life in New York, moved to Connecticut, studied voice and acting and acted professionally throughout New England, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. While auditioning for a summer season at Montclair Summer Theatre she met and married the director who also taught theatre arts at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Upon retiring they moved to Ocala where shortly thereafter her husband passed away. She has appeared in several plays for Ocala Civic Theatre and who can forget her as Nellie Forbush in Way Off Broadway's presentation of "South Pacific?" She is excited about her new role and will be directing Dee Gragg, a seasoned and very talented actor, in the role of Charmaine Beauregard. Charmaine brings her lifetime overactive libido to the Rose Cottage to renew her affair with "Bud The Stud," only to find he is two-timing her with several of the lady residents of the cottage, A proud woman, not accustomed to playing second fiddle, she leads the charge to tame poor Bud who learns about "a woman scorned."

Each player left most of her clubs at home and had to strategize which 4 clubs could get her through an entire round "successfully." Each player seemed to have a different strategy, some were successful and some were not as successful. The winners wereFirst Flight: 1st PlaceJan Tennant, 2nd PlaceDiana Galla; Second Flight: 1st Place tie Sheila Adams and Ginger Drake, 3rd PlacePatty Dougherty; Third Flight: 1st PlaceBarb Davis, 2nd Place tieMary Kay Frandsen and Cindy Kocher. Jan Tennant was "Closest to the Pin." ROWGO members wish everyone a healthy, Happy New Year.Royal Oaks Lady Niners"Odds and Evens" was the game played on Thursday, Dec. 22. In each foursome, 2 players were "odd" and 2 were "even." On each odd numbered hole, only the scores of the two "odd" players counted and likewise for the even numbered holes. Of course, the players had to decide in advance whether to be "odd" or "even." It was interesting to say the least! The team of B.J. Lassiter, Diana Schmidt, Salita Timmermeyer and Patty Waddell won the game. The team of Vange Bell, Charlotte Green, Bette Johnson and Cindy Kocher were second. Third place went to the team of Sally Crass, Phyllis Oldfield, Brenda Raider and Ilene Simnowitz. Ilene Simnowitz made a chip-in on the 4th hole and Patty Waddell was "closest to the pin" on the 3rd hole. Congratulations to all! All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room Have a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

Each year I go kicking and screaming into the New Year, and not because I am against change. My pants pocket is full of change. I simply cannot remember to change the year on the checks I write until May. By the time, I remember the correct year I have forgotten to make deposits into my checking account. I need a reality check, which with any luck will not bounce as high as my checkbook. That is not the only reason I hesitate going into a new year. The biggest reason has to do with the mistakes I made during the old year. Looking back over the old year, I worry that my blunders were not as bad as they could have been. Did I make all the gaffes I possibly could? Did I fill my quota? What is my quota, anyway? For many people, the New Year offers the opportunity to start over again. Actually, what happens is people simply make new mistakes curiously similar to the mistakes made during the old year. If I have any resolution for the New Year it would be to perfect the mistakes I have already made. I do not see any sense in making new bloopers when I can easily requisition the old ones for duty during the New Year. And what is wrong with my old mistakes? The only thing I can think of is that I did not work hard enough to make the most of them. It is one thing to make a mistake, but it is quite another thing to perfect the art of making a mistake so that you do not have to repeat it ever again. Too many amateurs have given mistake-making a bad name. Most of my mistakes have been so poorly discharged that in the coming New Year I will have to redo many of them. And, frankly, I am tired of it all. I am anxious to move on to new areas of mistake making. I am convinced there are faux pas to make that I have not dreamed of at this point in my life. Believe me, I have been dreaming. Actually, the gracious mistress of the Parsonage things they are all nightmares. However, my horsing around is not limited to the nighttime. With that in mind, my resolution for the New Year is to make sure all mistakes I make (and there will be plenty, I assure you) will be as thorough as possible. I refuse to execute any mistake before its time. Some mistakes take lots of time to fully mature, but when its time comes, I want to make sure it is implemented as smoothly and as perfectly as possible. If I am any judge of character, the majority of people will not make any new mistakes this coming New Year. Oh, they think they are making new mistakes but in reality, they are dusting off old ones and re-dating them for the current year. What a waste of time, in my opinion. For those who take mistake-making seriously, allow me to offer some help to guide this pursuit in the coming New Year. Look back over the old year and make a list of all of the mistakes you have made. If you are a husband, solicit help from your wife, who will be able to remember all of those mistakes you have forgotten. (Not to mention one or two you did not make.) Go over each mistake on your list and determine if it needs repeated for the New Year. It does not make sense in doing new mistakes if you are not finished with the old ones. Nothing is more disheartening than a half-baked mistake. For every mistake from the previous year not needing repeat, place a nice red star in front of it. That mistake can now go into your Hall of Blame, which you will never have to repeat again. Of course, you will have some mistakes, even though they have been perfectly executed are well worth repeating. You know which ones they are. Dont you? Now look at all of those mistakes listed for repeating during the New Year. Prioritize them so you can begin the New Year with a good plan. As you prioritize this list, think of ways in which you can improve on your mistakes over the past year. No satisfaction compares with doing something as good as you can. One mans blunder is another mans gaffe. Everyone generates mistakes, which is healthy. What is unhealthy is thinking you have not made any mistakes, which is a mistake. Some people have the strange idea that they live a completely mistake free life. A mistake well executed is a mistake never needing repeating. During the New Year, execute as many mistakes as your conscience will allow. The Bible, an authority on mistakes, says this; If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:8-10 KJV.) The great hope we have is that there is no mistake bigger than Gods ability to forgive. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-687-4240 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

Snyder City warning of bogus callsOcala Utility Services (OUS) has received reports that some of its customers have been getting bogus telephone calls that utility payments are overdue. The calls can be particularly convincing because the caller identification function on phones identifies the caller as OUS. When they call the number listed, it actually goes to OUS offices. Typically in scams such as this, customers are asked to make a payment using a credit card number. OUS Customer Service Director Terry Austin suggests that if customers have any suspicion at all about the legitimacy of the call they are receiving, hang up and call 629-CITY (2489).

Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com T ime Magazines 2011 person-of-the-year committee chose The Protester a masked and anonymous symbol for discontented folks around the world, who spent this year exclaiming loudly Were mad as hell, and were not going to take this any more! Unlike more aggressive protesters in other countries, our occupy-something dissenters havent collapsed any stock exchanges or bodies of government. However, next year isnt even young yet. Theres plenty of time and opportunity for disorganized disapprovers to demonstrate during an election year. Union protesters werent successful in Wisconsin and Ohio this year, so they switched their strategy to an old-fashioned legal action. They filed petitions to recall the government officials they believe have done them wrong. Our rule of law is alive and slow, which is not as lively or invigorating as an old fashioned raucous protest. Political primary season followed by party conventions and campaign rallies will be fertile circumstances for protesters to renew their efforts to win the hearts and minds of American voters. Should we be concerned? We forget that the founding fathers of our nation were protesters and revolutionaries. Some of them believed periodic turmoil is healthy for a representative republic. Most of the time, our modern method of being revolutionary is voting a sizeable group of Congress members out of office in a single election. Their replacements may be worse, you say. Yes they could, and many will be as bad or worse if left in office too long. As a spoiled and pampered society most citizens are no longer culturally equipped to be demonstrative revolutionaries. We doubt even members of the NRA would be willing to spend a winter making burlap socks and living in a hut at Valley Forge, while waiting for Congress to supply shoes and food. We once had a neighbor who became disturbed by the changing world about him and ran for a municipal office using a campaign slogan Lets keep our town the way it used to be. As his silly slogan revealed, the town was already not the way it used to be, but our neighbor couldnt believe it could never be the same again. He received a few votes, most likely from family members. Thomas Wolfe observed in his popular novel titled You Cant Go Home Again that we cant go back to our families, to our childhoods, to our dreams, or to old forms and systems which once seemed everlasting, but which are changing constantly, to escape both time and memory. About our nation, Wolfe said The paradox of America is that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement. Sometimes however it is difficult to accept that this too shall pass. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, December 30, 2011 H ere's another one of those reasons why not only do I not fly but I don't want my grandkids flying, either. Recently, a 9-year-old girl was put on a Southwest Airlines plane in Nashville, Tennessee, to visit her relatives in New York. Her flight had scheduled stops in Columbus, Ohio, (I've been there, it's not exactly the hub of the universe) and Baltimore, Maryland, before going on to LaGuardia Airport in New York. Unfortunately, weather intervened. The plane was diverted to Cleveland, Ohio, and then she went to Baltimore. But that meant a change of planes in Baltimore, because the schedule had made her late, and when her scheduled flight arrived in New York, she wasn't on it. She spent five hours at the Baltimore airport as Southwest rebooked her. To their credit, the airline people took care of her. The attendant took her to a snack shop, and later the pilot bought her dinner. Meanwhile, though, no one told her parents in Nashville or her grandparents in New York where she was, and that started a frantic search by the family. Eventually she got to LaGuardia, the family was relieved, and Southwest was embarrassed. The ticket was refunded and there were vouchers given. Meanwhile, her mother said she will make the 17-hour drive to New York to pick her up she wasn't going to let her fly home. All of this brought back memories for me, but my memories are a little fonder. Back when I was 9, I flew from LaGuardia to St. Louis, Missouri, to spend a couple of weeks with my grandparents during the summer. They lived across the river in East St. Louis, Illinois. My parents had a two-week vacation every year and made the trip by auto, and this time they sent me ahead a couple of weeks, then drove out a couple of weeks later and I drove back with them. I thought it was quite an adventure, but I can appreciate now how anxious they must have been. I was, however on a nonstop flight, a TWA constellation, the ones with the three tails, and as near as I can remember it was uneventful. It's a good thing I didn't know then what I know now. It was a good visit. Even then I loved baseball, and I remember my late Aunt Phyllis taking me, with a couple of friends of hers, to see a doubleheader between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Browns. It was the Browns' last season in St. Louis they became the Baltimore Orioles the next year. My grandparents took me to a outdoor beer garden one evening, and I played horseshoes with some of the locals. Much to my parents' dismay, they also taught me to make highballs, and I was a bartender when they arrived and a bunch of friends came over into my grandparents' finished basement (no air conditioning in those days). I never used that knowledge of bartending again alas, a career opportunity lost. But back to Chloe, the little girl who got a tour of the Baltimore airport she didn't expect. The story didn't say if she was as upset as her relatives, but at least it had a happy ending. That doesn't change my opinion of flying, though. As I've said before, If I don't drive, I don't go.

T hanks to a junk-food culture and sedentary lifestyle, one third of all Americans are obese, with the current trajectory on track for half of the U.S. population to be obese by 2030. The alarming rise in obesity among Americans is far more serious than bulging waistlines. It is a significant health problem. Studies estimate the rise in obesity could lead to millions of more cases of heart disease and stroke, and more than half a million extra cancer cases in the United States all of which would balloon health care costs. Even more alarming is the rise in child obesity. Child obesity has increased in American children from 6.5 percent in the 1990s to around 30 percent today with an accompanying rise in the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, liver diseases, asthma and sleep apnea. Since obese children have a 70 percent chance of being obese as adults, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. To combat child obesity, a healthy diet and physical activity are key. To its credit, Florida has promoted healthy eating habits with nutritional menus in school cafeterias and mandated one semester of physical education every year for middle school students. A bill (HB 4057) introduced by Republican State Rep. Larry Metz, however, would eliminate the state-mandated middle school physical education requirement in favor of reserving to local school districts the decision to offer physical education. Given the alarming upward trend in child obesity and its long-term health and financial consequences, Rep. Metzs bill is misguided. Not surprisingly, concerned health professionals are speaking out against Metzs proposal. Dr. Ralph Sacco, past president of the American Heart Association and professor of neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, warned, If we dont get our middle school children being physically active as early as possible, we run the risk of more obesity and more bad habits. Dr. Keith Ayoob, associate professor of pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine also noted, kids who are more physically fit are better able to focus on academics. Theres also good evidence that in school districts where there are regular recess periods, there are fewer diagnoses of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder). With research affirming a decrease in daily energy expenditure without a concomitant decrease in total energy consumption is a key factor for rising child obesity, physical education indisputably pays long-term health dividends. Nevertheless, the focus on the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) and a constrained budget environment strongly suggest some Florida school districts would follow the national trend and unwisely opt to eliminate middle school physical education. Accordingly, Florida lawmakers are urged not to support Rep. Metzs bill since it has the potential to do far more harm than good for the long-term health of Florida students.

Who says economy's bad?It seems everyone, mainly Republicans and shirkers, say the economy is bad. If so, where has all the money come from these past few months. Black Friday set all sorts of sales records and on Dec. 26 the news reports stated that spending over the Christmas season was up by $2-3 billion dollars, the highest since 2007 when the Republicans were using the White House. In fact, since Obama has been in the White House annual spending has been on the rise. Now if spending is on the rise that means people have money. Unemployment, seems to be a moniker used by the media. Are unemployment figures accurate? Unemployment is going down. I recall when I lived in Florida the first time many years ago and was a Medicare and Blue Cross auditor, I traveled around Lake Okeechobee to audit those hospitals. Of course the hospital administrator became good friends as did many of their board members. I will never forget executives with the sugar companies, south of the lake, telling me they had to import workers from the Caribbean islands to cut sugar cane, because African Americans felt it was beneath them to work in the fields. A real start on immigration. I'll bet there are thousands of people today, who refuse jobs they don't like. Add to that people whip are on welfare and you get very distorted figures. It's been reported in the media lately there are more single parents than married parents. Wow, why? Could it be a lack of maturity or just animal instincts. There are women on welfare who have as many as seven children each with a different father. That doesn't say much for our society today. Should these people be on welfare? Absolutely not. They should be working instead of spending so, much time in bed. Years ago when I was managing and owning businesses, those who were unemployed had to make at least 10 documented job applications a week for a job before they were granted unemployment. They had to try. I'm wondering, with the permissive society we have today, are people really trying. It seems the media only searches out specific unemployed people to interview. All those Republicans out there who are beating up on Obama should take lessons from him. Remember, Obama's health care program takes people off of the welfare roles for health care. Think about that when you pay your taxes, if you pay taxes. Bill Ford, OcalaEvery vote should countBefore we can have a legitimate election in the good old USA we must have an election where every vote counts. We make sure that foreign countries have legal elections but when it comes to our country it's too much work. Presently the old fashioned electoral college decides who can be elected rather than the popular vote of American citizens. Back when the pony express or the railroad was our means of communication we at that time decided that an electoral college was the most efficient means to decide elections. Now that we have electronic communications through instant messages, E-mails and computers we should allow that every vote counts. Our military, people on vacation, retirees who may be housebound or anyone else who may have a legitimate reason for not voting in person on Election Day should have an opportunity to vote. If my memory serves me correct, we have even fought wars to protect this right so why are Americans excluded. We should also get rid of the rules where the majority vote of any party in any state carries the electoral votes for the entire state. We are not serving the voting citizens of our country when their vote does not count if they live in a blue state or a red state. Each state should be a red, white and blue state and every vote should count. There should be no super delegates who could decide an election over the majority vote of individuals throughout our whole country. Who is going to stand up for the rights of American citizens, certainly not our elected representatives?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) stated he would not call the Senate back into session.

RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 T he other day I made a couple of purchases at a local department store. I really didnt pay very much attention to the transaction until I put away the receipt. For the love of me, I couldnt remember what one of the items was! I could account for the votive and candleholder but what was a non-ceramic home dcor accessory? I must have thought about that stupid $5.99 purchase for three days, wondering if indeed I was having a senior moment. In the old days, the clerk or cash register would record each item exactly for what it was, a pair of socks was a pair of socks not womens accessory which could be anything from scarves to hats to gloves! My angst finally ended when, out of the blue, it came to me! My $5.99 purchase was some sachet packets I put in my guest bath! How important is the simple act of remembering! At this time of the year when we stand forth to forge ahead, it is always a good thing to look back to see where weve been, to make an account of our past deeds so as to better face our future. Judaism has all sorts of things to help us remember. In fact, remembrance is a very big part of the Jewish faith. It is a thread that is woven throughout our culture and faith tying us to our past even as we move forward into the present. The idea of remembrance is closely tied to the beginnings of Jewish peoplehood with the remembering of the Exodus from Egypt. This single act of deliverance freed the Israelites from bondage and allowed them to pursue a path of free choice to worship the God of their ancestors. This event is remembered on all the festivals and Shabbat with the words of the Kiddush, or sanctification over wine. It is also played out during the Passover seder when other miracles and acts of deliverance are remembered.

The Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages is offering a Hebrew Reading Crash Course. The course is designed to teach those with little or no basic knowledge of the Hebrew language how to read Hebrew in six easy lessons. This time proven course will teach you to read Hebrew in only six weeks. We will be using text books (that will be provided) and power point presentations to get you used to the Hebrew letters, vowels and order so that you will be fluent in them at the end of the six weeks. The Hebrew Reading Crash Course focuses on teaching the Hebrew alphabet and reading skills. In only six, one hour long sessions, participants learn to read Hebrew and follow along in a prayer book. All participants will receive a copy of a Hebrew primer. The class will take place six Mondays starting Jan. 2 at 10:30 a.m. To register please visit www.jewishmairon.org. For more information about the Hebrew Reading Crash Course please call us at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org. Jews are exhorted to Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy. Now that the Israelites were free, they were able to have a day of rest to remember their travails in Egypt. They also could observe a day, which honored creation and the fact that God rested on the seventh day from creating the world. In other aspects of Jewish life, Jews remember their deceased with special prayer services called yiskor. (The word comes from the Hebrew meaning may God remember) At the time of the major festivals and at the anniversary of the death, loved ones are remembered in cherished moments of prayer. There is no greater time of memorial, I believe, than on Yom Ha Shoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. Occurring in the spring, right after Passover, this solemn day memorializes the Six Million, the number of Jews murdered by the Nazis reign of terror. Amidst slogans of Never Again and Never Forget, programs, services and vigils seek to commemorate the darkest hours in Jewish history. The Jewish liturgy is peppered with the theme of remembrance as well. The central prayer, The Amidah, calls on God to remember the deeds of our patriarchs and matriarchs so that we too may merit Gods love and compassion. The Rosh Ha Shanah service has a special section dealing with the blowing of the shofar, which contains verses containing references to remembering events in Biblical history. On the Jewish New Year, the story of the near sacrifice of Isaac is recalled, averted by an angel and a ram whose horn was stuck in a thicket and is offered instead. The sound of a rams horn is remembered for its blast heard at Mt. Sinai, a blast that has echoed and has been remembered through the ages. And the Jewish New Year is known as Yom HaZicaron, the Day of Remembrance, when we remember our past deeds and try to improve on these deeds by repenting and leading a more godly life. In the midst of the joyous and often riotous holiday of Purim when Jews celebrate their deliverance from wicked Haman, there is the passage in the Torah to remember Amalek. Amalek was a tribe who preyed on the stragglers, women, children, aged ones as they marched through the desert on their way to the Promised Land. This tribe of marauders would attack these defenseless ones because they were an easy target. Legend has it that Haman and Hitler were descendants from this tribe. Many times the Torah repeats: Remember you were strangers in the Land of Egypt. This statement seeks to sensitize the Israelites to the plight of others and is the great cry for social justice that prefaces commandments for caring for the less fortunate. As we stand on the threshold of the secular year of 2012, let us look back on our accomplishments and failures and strive for a better year ahead. Let us remember our past with pride but let us also move forward into the future. May the power of remembrance girdle us with strength to face the year ahead. Remembering is a good thing. It strengthens us, gives us direction and tries us to a continuum of our past. Now, if I could only remember where I put my car keys ..

For more information about the Hebrew Reading Crash Course please call us at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org. Jews are exhorted to Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy. Now that the Israelites were free, they were able to have a day of rest to remember their travails in Egypt. They also could observe a day, which honored creation and the fact that God rested on the seventh day from creating the world. In other aspects of Jewish life, Jews remember their deceased with special prayer services called yiskor. (The word comes from the Hebrew meaning may God remember) At the time of the major festivals and at the anniversary of the death, loved ones are remembered in cherished moments of prayer. There is no greater time of memorial, I believe, than on Yom Ha Shoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. Occurring in the spring, right after Passover, this solemn day memorializes the Six Million, the number of Jews murdered by the Nazis reign of terror. Amidst slogans of Never Again and Never Forget, programs, services and vigils seek to commemorate the darkest hours in Jewish history. The Jewish liturgy is peppered with the theme of remembrance as well. The central prayer, The Amidah, calls on God to remember the deeds of our patriarchs and matriarchs so that we too may merit Gods love and compassion. The Rosh Ha Shanah service has a special section dealing with the blowing of the shofar, which contains verses containing references to remembering events in Biblical history. On the Jewish New Year, the story of the near sacrifice of Isaac is recalled, averted by an angel and a ram whose horn was stuck in a thicket and is offered instead. The sound of a rams horn is remembered for its blast heard at Mt. Sinai, a blast that has echoed and has been remembered through the ages. And the Jewish New Year is known as Yom HaZicaron, the Day of Remembrance, when we remember our past deeds and try to improve on these deeds by repenting and leading a more godly life. In the midst of the joyous and often riotous holiday of Purim when Jews celebrate their deliverance from wicked Haman, there is the passage in the Torah to remember Amalek. Amalek was a tribe who preyed on the stragglers, women, children, aged ones as they marched through the desert on their way to the Promised Land. This tribe of marauders would attack these defenseless ones because they were an easy target. Legend has it that Haman and Hitler were descendants from this tribe. Many times the Torah repeats: Remember you were strangers in the Land of Egypt. This statement seeks to sensitize the Israelites to the plight of others and is the great cry for social justice that prefaces commandments for caring for the less fortunate. As we stand on the threshold of the secular year of 2012, let us look back on our accomplishments and failures and strive for a better year ahead. Let us remember our past with pride but let us also move forward into the future. May the power of remembrance girdle us with strength to face the year ahead. Remembering is a good thing. It strengthens us, gives us direction and tries us to a continuum of our past. Now, if I could only remember where I put my car keys ..

RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 T he other day I made a couple of purchases at a local department store. I really didnt pay very much attention to the transaction until I put away the receipt. For the love of me, I couldnt remember what one of the items was! I could account for the votive and candleholder but what was a non-ceramic home dcor accessory? I must have thought about that stupid $5.99 purchase for three days, wondering if indeed I was having a senior moment. In the old days, the clerk or cash register would record each item exactly for what it was, a pair of socks was a pair of socks not womens accessory which could be anything from scarves to hats to gloves! My angst finally ended when, out of the blue, it came to me! My $5.99 purchase was some sachet packets I put in my guest bath! How important is the simple act of remembering! At this time of the year when we stand forth to forge ahead, it is always a good thing to look back to see where weve been, to make an account of our past deeds so as to better face our future. Judaism has all sorts of things to help us remember. In fact, remembrance is a very big part of the Jewish faith. It is a thread that is woven throughout our culture and faith tying us to our past even as we move forward into the present. The idea of remembrance is closely tied to the beginnings of Jewish peoplehood with the remembering of the Exodus from Egypt. This single act of deliverance freed the Israelites from bondage and allowed them to pursue a path of free choice to worship the God of their ancestors. This event is remembered on all the festivals and Shabbat with the words of the Kiddush, or sanctification over wine. It is also played out during the Passover seder when other miracles and acts of deliverance are remembered.

Who says economy's bad?It seems everyone, mainly Republicans and shirkers, say the economy is bad. If so, where has all the money come from these past few months. Black Friday set all sorts of sales records and on Dec. 26 the news reports stated that spending over the Christmas season was up by $2-3 billion dollars, the highest since 2007 when the Republicans were using the White House. In fact, since Obama has been in the White House annual spending has been on the rise. Now if spending is on the rise that means people have money. Unemployment, seems to be a moniker used by the media. Are unemployment figures accurate? Unemployment is going down. I recall when I lived in Florida the first time many years ago and was a Medicare and Blue Cross auditor, I traveled around Lake Okeechobee to audit those hospitals. Of course the hospital administrator became good friends as did many of their board members. I will never forget executives with the sugar companies, south of the lake, telling me they had to import workers from the Caribbean islands to cut sugar cane, because African Americans felt it was beneath them to work in the fields. A real start on immigration. I'll bet there are thousands of people today, who refuse jobs they don't like. Add to that people whip are on welfare and you get very distorted figures. It's been reported in the media lately there are more single parents than married parents. Wow, why? Could it be a lack of maturity or just animal instincts. There are women on welfare who have as many as seven children each with a different father. That doesn't say much for our society today. Should these people be on welfare? Absolutely not. They should be working instead of spending so, much time in bed. Years ago when I was managing and owning businesses, those who were unemployed had to make at least 10 documented job applications a week for a job before they were granted unemployment. They had to try. I'm wondering, with the permissive society we have today, are people really trying. It seems the media only searches out specific unemployed people to interview. All those Republicans out there who are beating up on Obama should take lessons from him. Remember, Obama's health care program takes people off of the welfare roles for health care. Think about that when you pay your taxes, if you pay taxes. Bill Ford, OcalaEvery vote should countBefore we can have a legitimate election in the good old USA we must have an election where every vote counts. We make sure that foreign countries have legal elections but when it comes to our country it's too much work. Presently the old fashioned electoral college decides who can be elected rather than the popular vote of American citizens. Back when the pony express or the railroad was our means of communication we at that time decided that an electoral college was the most efficient means to decide elections. Now that we have electronic communications through instant messages, E-mails and computers we should allow that every vote counts. Our military, people on vacation, retirees who may be housebound or anyone else who may have a legitimate reason for not voting in person on Election Day should have an opportunity to vote. If my memory serves me correct, we have even fought wars to protect this right so why are Americans excluded. We should also get rid of the rules where the majority vote of any party in any state carries the electoral votes for the entire state. We are not serving the voting citizens of our country when their vote does not count if they live in a blue state or a red state. Each state should be a red, white and blue state and every vote should count. There should be no super delegates who could decide an election over the majority vote of individuals throughout our whole country. Who is going to stand up for the rights of American citizens, certainly not our elected representatives?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) stated he would not call the Senate back into session. The standoff ended later in the week when the House agreed to pass the twomonth bill and the Senate agreed to name conferees to work out a yearlong extension. Republican Rep.

Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com T ime Magazines 2011 person-of-the-year committee chose The Protester a masked and anonymous symbol for discontented folks around the world, who spent this year exclaiming loudly Were mad as hell, and were not going to take this any more! Unlike more aggressive protesters in other countries, our occupy-something dissenters havent collapsed any stock exchanges or bodies of government. However, next year isnt even young yet. Theres plenty of time and opportunity for disorganized disapprovers to demonstrate during an election year. Union protesters werent successful in Wisconsin and Ohio this year, so they switched their strategy to an old-fashioned legal action. They filed petitions to recall the government officials they believe have done them wrong. Our rule of law is alive and slow, which is not as lively or invigorating as an old fashioned raucous protest. Political primary season followed by party conventions and campaign rallies will be fertile circumstances for protesters to renew their efforts to win the hearts and minds of American voters. Should we be concerned? We forget that the founding fathers of our nation were protesters and revolutionaries. Some of them believed periodic turmoil is healthy for a representative republic. Most of the time, our modern method of being revolutionary is voting a sizeable group of Congress members out of office in a single election. Their replacements may be worse, you say. Yes they could, and many will be as bad or worse if left in office too long. As a spoiled and pampered society most citizens are no longer culturally equipped to be demonstrative revolutionaries. We doubt even members of the NRA would be willing to spend a winter making burlap socks and living in a hut at Valley Forge, while waiting for Congress to supply shoes and food. We once had a neighbor who became disturbed by the changing world about him and ran for a municipal office using a campaign slogan Lets keep our town the way it used to be. As his silly slogan revealed, the town was already not the way it used to be, but our neighbor couldnt believe it could never be the same again. He received a few votes, most likely from family members. Thomas Wolfe observed in his popular novel titled You Cant Go Home Again that we cant go back to our families, to our childhoods, to our dreams, or to old forms and systems which once seemed everlasting, but which are changing constantly, to escape both time and memory. About our nation, Wolfe said The paradox of America is that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement. Sometimes however it is difficult to accept that this too shall pass. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, December 30, 2011 H ere's another one of those reasons why not only do I not fly but I don't want my grandkids flying, either. Recently, a 9-year-old girl was put on a Southwest Airlines plane in Nashville, Tennessee, to visit her relatives in New York. Her flight had scheduled stops in Columbus, Ohio, (I've been there, it's not exactly the hub of the universe) and Baltimore, Maryland, before going on to LaGuardia Airport in New York. Unfortunately, weather intervened. The plane was diverted to Cleveland, Ohio, and then she went to Baltimore. But that meant a change of planes in Baltimore, because the schedule had made her late, and when her scheduled flight arrived in New York, she wasn't on it. She spent five hours at the Baltimore airport as Southwest rebooked her. To their credit, the airline people took care of her. The attendant took her to a snack shop, and later the pilot bought her dinner. Meanwhile, though, no one told her parents in Nashville or her grandparents in New York where she was, and that started a frantic search by the family. Eventually she got to LaGuardia, the family was relieved, and Southwest was embarrassed. The ticket was refunded and there were vouchers given. Meanwhile, her mother said she will make the 17-hour drive to New York to pick her up she wasn't going to let her fly home. All of this brought back memories for me, but my memories are a little fonder. Back when I was 9, I flew from LaGuardia to St. Louis, Missouri, to spend a couple of weeks with my grandparents during the summer. They lived across the river in East St. Louis, Illinois. My parents had a two-week vacation every year and made the trip by auto, and this time they sent me ahead a couple of weeks, then drove out a couple of weeks later and I drove back with them. I thought it was quite an adventure, but I can appreciate now how anxious they must have been. I was, however on a nonstop flight, a TWA constellation, the ones with the three tails, and as near as I can remember it was uneventful. It's a good thing I didn't know then what I know now. It was a good visit. Even then I loved baseball, and I remember my late Aunt Phyllis taking me, with a couple of friends of hers, to see a doubleheader between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Browns. It was the Browns' last season in St. Louis they became the Baltimore Orioles the next year. My grandparents took me to a outdoor beer garden one evening, and I played horseshoes with some of the locals. Much to my parents' dismay, they also taught me to make highballs, and I was a bartender when they arrived and a bunch of friends came over into my grandparents' finished basement (no air conditioning in those days). I never used that knowledge of bartending again alas, a career opportunity lost. But back to Chloe, the little girl who got a tour of the Baltimore airport she didn't expect. The story didn't say if she was as upset as her relatives, but at least it had a happy ending. That doesn't change my opinion of flying, though. As I've said before, If I don't drive, I don't go.

T hanks to a junk-food culture and sedentary lifestyle, one third of all Americans are obese, with the current trajectory on track for half of the U.S. population to be obese by 2030. The alarming rise in obesity among Americans is far more serious than bulging waistlines. It is a significant health problem. Studies estimate the rise in obesity could lead to millions of more cases of heart disease and stroke, and more than half a million extra cancer cases in the United States all of which would balloon health care costs. Even more alarming is the rise in child obesity. Child obesity has increased in American children from 6.5 percent in the 1990s to around 30 percent today with an accompanying rise in the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, liver diseases, asthma and sleep apnea. Since obese children have a 70 percent chance of being obese as adults, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. To combat child obesity, a healthy diet and physical activity are key. To its credit, Florida has promoted healthy eating habits with nutritional menus in school cafeterias and mandated one semester of physical education every year for middle school students. A bill (HB 4057) introduced by Republican State Rep. Larry Metz, however, would eliminate the state-mandated middle school physical education requirement in favor of reserving to local school districts the decision to offer physical education. Given the alarming upward trend in child obesity and its long-term health and financial consequences, Rep. Metzs bill is misguided. Not surprisingly, concerned health professionals are speaking out against Metzs proposal. Dr. Ralph Sacco, past president of the American Heart Association and professor of neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, warned, If we dont get our middle school children being physically active as early as possible, we run the risk of more obesity and more bad habits. Dr. Keith Ayoob, associate professor of pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine also noted, kids who are more physically fit are better able to focus on academics. Theres also good evidence that in school districts where there are regular recess periods, there are fewer diagnoses of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder). With research affirming a decrease in daily energy expenditure without a concomitant decrease in total energy consumption is a key factor for rising child obesity, physical education indisputably pays long-term health dividends. Nevertheless, the focus on the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) and a constrained budget environment strongly suggest some Florida school districts would follow the national trend and unwisely opt to eliminate middle school physical education. Accordingly, Florida lawmakers are urged not to support Rep. Metzs bill since it has the potential to do far more harm than good for the long-term health of Florida students.

Pat is a wonderful teacher and an award winning quilter. Youll learn from the best. Several of our members will be working on Quilts for Kids where small quilts are made for children in hospitals. Kits were provided and the ladies will be putting these quilts together in a flash. Oh, speaking of charity projects, our annual charity quilt project raised over $560 for Interfaiths Food 4 Kids program. Thank you for helping us support this worthwhile project in 2011.

Each year I go kicking and screaming into the New Year, and not because I am against change. My pants pocket is full of change. I simply cannot remember to change the year on the checks I write until May. By the time, I remember the correct year I have forgotten to make deposits into my checking account. I need a reality check, which with any luck will not bounce as high as my checkbook. That is not the only reason I hesitate going into a new year. The biggest reason has to do with the mistakes I made during the old year. Looking back over the old year, I worry that my blunders were not as bad as they could have been. Did I make all the gaffes I possibly could? Did I fill my quota? What is my quota, anyway? For many people, the New Year offers the opportunity to start over again. Actually, what happens is people simply make new mistakes curiously similar to the mistakes made during the old year. If I have any resolution for the New Year it would be to perfect the mistakes I have already made. I do not see any sense in making new bloopers when I can easily requisition the old ones for duty during the New Year. And what is wrong with my old mistakes? The only thing I can think of is that I did not work hard enough to make the most of them. It is one thing to make a mistake, but it is quite another thing to perfect the art of making a mistake so that you do not have to repeat it ever again. Too many amateurs have given mistake-making a bad name. Most of my mistakes have been so poorly discharged that in the coming New Year I will have to redo many of them. And, frankly, I am tired of it all. I am anxious to move on to new areas of mistake making. I am convinced there are faux pas to make that I have not dreamed of at this point in my life. Believe me, I have been dreaming. Actually, the gracious mistress of the Parsonage things they are all nightmares. However, my horsing around is not limited to the nighttime. With that in mind, my resolution for the New Year is to make sure all mistakes I make (and there will be plenty, I assure you) will be as thorough as possible. I refuse to execute any mistake before its time. Some mistakes take lots of time to fully mature, but when its time comes, I want to make sure it is implemented as smoothly and as perfectly as possible. If I am any judge of character, the majority of people will not make any new mistakes this coming New Year. Oh, they think they are making new mistakes but in reality, they are dusting off old ones and re-dating them for the current year. What a waste of time, in my opinion. For those who take mistake-making seriously, allow me to offer some help to guide this pursuit in the coming New Year. Look back over the old year and make a list of all of the mistakes you have made. If you are a husband, solicit help from your wife, who will be able to remember all of those mistakes you have forgotten. (Not to mention one or two you did not make.) Go over each mistake on your list and determine if it needs repeated for the New Year. It does not make sense in doing new mistakes if you are not finished with the old ones. Nothing is more disheartening than a half-baked mistake. For every mistake from the previous year not needing repeat, place a nice red star in front of it. That mistake can now go into your Hall of Blame, which you will never have to repeat again. Of course, you will have some mistakes, even though they have been perfectly executed are well worth repeating. You know which ones they are. Dont you? Now look at all of those mistakes listed for repeating during the New Year. Prioritize them so you can begin the New Year with a good plan. As you prioritize this list, think of ways in which you can improve on your mistakes over the past year. No satisfaction compares with doing something as good as you can. One mans blunder is another mans gaffe. Everyone generates mistakes, which is healthy. What is unhealthy is thinking you have not made any mistakes, which is a mistake. Some people have the strange idea that they live a completely mistake free life. A mistake well executed is a mistake never needing repeating. During the New Year, execute as many mistakes as your conscience will allow. The Bible, an authority on mistakes, says this; If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:8-10 KJV.) The great hope we have is that there is no mistake bigger than Gods ability to forgive. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Snyder City warning of bogus callsOcala Utility Services (OUS) has received reports that some of its customers have been getting bogus telephone calls that utility payments are overdue. The calls can be particularly convincing because the caller identification function on phones identifies the caller as OUS. When they call the number listed, it actually goes to OUS offices. Typically in scams such as this, customers are asked to make a payment using a credit card number. OUS Customer Service Director Terry Austin suggests that if customers have any suspicion at all about the legitimacy of the call they are receiving, hang up and call 629-CITY (2489).

On Thursday, Feb. 16, Jan and Joann Flickinger will host a trip to the Florida State Fair. The fair includes indoor and outdoor exhibits, rides and shows. The fair also offers competitions in crafts, fine arts, and agricultural competitions. There are so many displays and attractions that everyone should find many things to do at this fair. Vicki Lawrence and Mama will be appearing at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Sunday, Feb. 19. Vicki approaches everything with a sense of humor, because "Life is much too serious to be taken seriously." Call Kitty Trichel at 352-873-7324 to reserve your seat. Shuffleboard ClubOn a beautiful sunny morning, Dec. 19, the club held a members only tournament. The attendance was very high and the club held a 50/50 raffle having three lucky winners. The game of the day was skill shuffle, the highest score being the victory point. The play was very close as the game came to the finish. The winners were Charlie Imperial for the men and Laraine Davis for the women. Both players received a prize for their win.

Each player left most of her clubs at home and had to strategize which 4 clubs could get her through an entire round "successfully." Each player seemed to have a different strategy, some were successful and some were not as successful. The winners wereFirst Flight: 1st PlaceJan Tennant, 2nd PlaceDiana Galla; Second Flight: 1st Place tie Sheila Adams and Ginger Drake, 3rd PlacePatty Dougherty; Third Flight: 1st PlaceBarb Davis, 2nd Place tieMary Kay Frandsen and Cindy Kocher. Jan Tennant was "Closest to the Pin." ROWGO members wish everyone a healthy, Happy New Year.Royal Oaks Lady Niners"Odds and Evens" was the game played on Thursday, Dec. 22. In each foursome, 2 players were "odd" and 2 were "even." On each odd numbered hole, only the scores of the two "odd" players counted and likewise for the even numbered holes. Of course, the players had to decide in advance whether to be "odd" or "even." It was interesting to say the least! The team of B.J. Lassiter, Diana Schmidt, Salita Timmermeyer and Patty Waddell won the game. The team of Vange Bell, Charlotte Green, Bette Johnson and Cindy Kocher were second. Third place went to the team of Sally Crass, Phyllis Oldfield, Brenda Raider and Ilene Simnowitz. Ilene Simnowitz made a chip-in on the 4th hole and Patty Waddell was "closest to the pin" on the 3rd hole. Congratulations to all! All ladies living in Oak Run are welcome to play with the Lady Niners on Monday mornings. The tee-times are noted on the sign-up sheet in the ladies locker room Have a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

S unday is New Years Day sleeping in, watching sports on TV, and nibbling on snacks all day. Sleeping in is often necessary following the preceding evenings celebrations. By looking at past year-end holidays, todays column gives you an idea of what may be ahead. A New Years wishOn New Years Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. It turned out rather embarrassing. As the clock struck midnight the bartender was almost crushed to death. Nothing to complain about It was New Years Day, and I had planned to spend it watching football. My wife, however, had other ideas, resulting in my serving time at a family dinner. When the coast was clear, I sneaked away and turned on the ball game. A few minutes later, my wife came by. Whats the score? she asked. Nothing-nothing at the end of the third quarter, I replied. See? she said. You didnt miss a thing. Tebow doesnt do anything until the last two minutes. All WelcomeThe New Years Eve party had turned into a regular marathon with numerous guests coming and going. At one point, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to the bar in the basement. He sat there happily for a couple of hours before something dawned on him. You know, he confided to his host, I wasnt even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests cars are blocking my driveway. The guest continued, My wifes been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved. Shots When they were late to the party, they were beaten to the punch. Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Do you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Few know that New Years Eve is named after our Biblical foremother. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. This year my wife gave me a new piece of kitchen equipment. So I will be celebrating my New Years Sieve. The rest of you will have to sift for yourselves. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 366 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. The high jumper is looking forward to 2012 because it is a leap year. Were so broke, my wife and I stayed home and toasted the New Year. She had rye and I had whole wheat. A high resolution is a promise made on New Years Eve.ManlyI think women get more excited about New Years Eve than men. If you think about it, you can see why. What do you do on New Years Eve? You drink too much and make a lot of promises you dont keep. You see, men do that all the time, its called dating. Tis the season At the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom always yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season. Pun Alley resolutionThis column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week. Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.Friday, December 30, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, December 30, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10WORDS$8.20+44AWORD(IncludesOnline)=TOTAL For your convenience, mail with payments to South Marion Citizen office at 8810 SW SR 200, Unit 104, Ocala, FL 34481 or call...Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses CallTollFree1-877-676-1403 CLASSIFIEDAD SMC_CLASS_AD_FORM_3_9_11 Todays New Ads AUTO SWAP/ Corral CAR SHOW Sumter County Fairgrounds SUMTER SWAPMEETS Jan. 1, 2012 1-800-438-8559 Professional MANAGERS NEEDED Exp. preferred but not required, training provided. 401(k) and medical.

CERTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The recreational and commercial harvest of tiger sharks and smooth, scalloped and great hammerhead sharks will be prohibited in Florida state waters beginning Jan. 1. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved the management change at its Nov. 16 Commission meeting in an effort to further protect these top predators. The new measures also prohibit the possession, sale and exchange of tiger sharks and great, scalloped and smooth hammerhead sharks harvested from state waters. These sharks can still be caught and released in state waters and can be taken in adjacent federal waters. Prohibited species that die while on the line after being caught in state waters should be returned to the water immediately. The FWC is also working on an educational campaign highlighting fishing and handling techniques that increase the survival rate of sharks that are caught and released while ensuring the safety of the anglers targeting them. These techniques include: Use tackle heavy enough to land a fish quickly, reducing exhaustion. Release the fish while it is in the water when possible. Use a de-hooking device to remove hooks safely. Use non-stainless steel hooks that can dissolve if they remain in a fish. Use non-offset circle hooks to avoid gut-hooking a fish. Florida waters are considered essential habitat for these and other species of shark, especially juveniles and pregnant females. Shark fishing has been strictly regulated in Florida since 1992, with a one-shark-per-person, two-sharks-pervessel daily bag limit for all recreational and commercial harvesters and a ban on shark finning. Roughly two-dozen overfished, vulnerable or rare shark species are catch-and-release only in Florida waters. For more information on shark fishing, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on "Saltwater Fishing" and either "Recreational Regulations" or "Commercial."

Stevin Roopnarine, 23, of Southwest 105th Street, whose occupation is listed as a phlebotomist, is accused of killing Lavar Watson of Volusia County. According to the probable cause affidavit, deputies with the Marion County Sheriffs Office went to Summerfield Monday, Dec. 26, to investigate a report of a man lying beside the road. The body had obvious signs of trauma, and an autopsy later revealed three bullet wounds to the back of the head and a fourth gunshot wound to his shoulder. At about the same time, a female talking to the Ocala Police Department said she had witnessed a murder. Her vehicle showed signs of blood, and contact was made with the deputies and the two cases were linked, according to the affidavit. She said she was hanging out with her friend, Roopnarine, while he completed his work as a mobile phlebotomist. While she waited for him, she made contact by telephone with Lavar Watson, and he agreed to meet her in Ocala so they could go on a date. She met him at a local theater complex, and he agreed to ride with them to Munroe to drop off the blood. After Roopnarine completed his tasks, according to the affidavit, he asked to be given a ride to a friends house near Summerfield, and the woman agreed to drive there. Watson was in the front seat and Roopnarine was in the back. Roopnarine showed her a message on his phone that he was going to take Watsons wallet. Shortly after, she pulled up to a stop sign in a dark intersection and heard Watson yell an expletive, and then she saw Roopnarine shoot Watson. They both went through his pockets, removing his wallet, money and other items. The body was left by the side of the road on Southeast 51st Avenue in the 13500 block. Roopnarine was located later, and began to provide a timeline for the incident. However, he said, the woman was the one who first shot Watson. Roopnarine said he grabbed the gun from her and shot the victim again. He was arrested and charged with the two felonies. He is being held without bond. A sheriffs office spokesman said no charges have been filed against the female witness, but that the investigation is continuing. Bradd Clark, the fire chief of Owasso, Oklahoma, has accepted the position of Ocala Fire Rescue Chief. Clark is expected to begin his new duties on Feb. 1 and will succeed John DeIorio. We are pleased to offer this position to Chief Clark, said Catherine Cameron, Ocala Assistant City Manager for Public Services, who headed the negotiations. He has a very impressive resume and I believe he will be an excellent fit for Ocala. From 2005 until present, Clark served as chief of the Owasso, Okla., fire department where he oversaw a department of 54 employees. From 20012005, he was the fire chief of Claremore, Okla. Fire Department, and from 1997 to 2001 he was the chief of the Sand Springs, Okla. Fire Department. He holds a masters degree in fire & emergency management administration and an undergraduate degree in fire protection & safety from Oklahoma State University. Clarks salary will be $106,000. County parks officials seek old pics, infoThe earliest recorded baseball games at Orange Lake Community Park took place in 1918. The land encompassed by W.H. Willoughby Park once belonged to a farmer and preacher from Alabama. County parks are rich in history, and a Marion County department wants to preserve as much of it as possible. Marion County Parks and Recreation is inviting residents to assist in its collection of historical park information and photographs by sharing any little known fact or visual about a county park.

SW Ocala man accused of murder Roopnarine City hires new fire chief Voters group sets programs A new Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training will begin Thursday, Feb.16, at the Marion County Sheriff's Office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. This is an 8session training which is available either as an afternoon, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. class or as an evening, 6:30 to 9 p.m. class. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriff's Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism.
