BY JIM CLARK EditorIt was supposed to be a District 3 County Commission candidate debate, but since one of two hopefuls didnt attend, Stan McClain had to answer all the questions himself. The Tea Party Solutions meeting Monday night featured McClain, the Republican incumbent who is being opposed by Democrat Patricia Reed, who was invited but did not attend. In his opening remarks, McClain commented, The oppression from the top is unbelievable. It was become painful to see how many rules and regulations are pushed down to us. McClain noted that government at the local level is very important, and we have to continue to say no. With the countys large population, McClain noted, I probably face more voters (than state representatives). He drew a reaction from the crowd when he said he and his wife had 11 children and four grandchildren. He praised earlier commissions for their fiscal responsibility, and said, Were reaping some of the benefits now. As a result, he said, he didnt have a sky is falling mentality. He said he stands on his record, a conservative record, and added, Weve taken a view that our government needs to be smaller. He said that he continues to look for ways for the private sector to take over some responsibilities. Asked about impact fees and the countys moratorium, he said that eliminating them was fine with me. McClain said he didnt know if the decision has spurred growth, and as for the loss of funds, noted the government didnt take money out of someones pocket. Asked about the springs protection ordinance, he noted, The more I looked at it, the more I realized it was not the right thing to do for Marion County. I do see the encroachment of government. He was questioned about the proposed tech development at Interstate 75 and County Road 318 north of Ocala, and defended the property owner, saying that he was a strong proponent for property rights and that someone had made an investment in the property. He said he could support the development if it could pay for itself. Speaking about the Munroe Regional Medical Center trustees, he indicated he felt the hospital needed to either be sold or leased, and said there were seven proposals on the table. As far as a hospital tax, he said that the people elected me to represent you, so you wont be bombarded by proposals to vote on. But he said there was another side. Sometimes I get a little ticked off. Just send it to a referendum and let the people vote it down, then were done with it. We dont need more taxes in Marion County. About grants and handouts, he said, There is no free money. He pointed out that if the money is coming from the state, or federal government, or water managePHOTO BY JIM CLARKCounty Commissioner Stan McClain speaks during his debate. Debate goes on, with just one candidate An incident on a school bus in the Southwest area has resulted in the arrest of a student of Kingsbury Academy. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the incident started as the bus was westbound on State Road 200 near 103rd Street Road. The female juvenile, age 13, attacked other students, and bit the bus driver after he stopped the bus and he and an aide tried to subdue the student. One student was punched in the face, another in the mouth. The girl said she punched one boy because he called her gay and another because he said something about her mother. She also resisted arrest by battling the deputy. After she was placed in the patrol car, she kicked the door windows several time. She was taken to the county jail, where she was accused of battery on a school official, simple battery, disruption of a school function and resisting without violence. It was the second school bus attack in recent weeks. Earlier, a Liberty Middle School girl was attacked by a gang of girls on a school bus. That case is proceeding through the court system.

The Florida House of Representatives has passed CS/CS/HB 681 Interlock Ignition Devices Ordered for Probation for DUI sponsored by Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala). This bill unanimously passed all three committees of reference on its way to the Session floor. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, there were 10,228 alcohol-impaired traffic fatalities in 2010 which represents 31 percentof all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2000 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates alcohol-related crashes in the United States cost the public $114.3 billion. The bill provides additional accountability for DUI offenders by ordering the installation of an interlock ignition device for at least three continuous months after their first offense, six continuous months after their second offense within five years, and 12 continuous months after their third offense within 10 years on all vehicles that are individually or jointly leased or owned and routinely operated by the defendant. We dont need more people in jail, we need them to stop drinking and driving, said Baxley. Law would target DUI offenders David Moore has formally announced his candidacy for County Commission District 1 seat. Moore, a Republican, is challenging incumbent Mike Amsden. In his announcement, Moore described his campaign for office and his vision to see a return to government that is "of, by, and for 'We the People." "I am one of you. One of 'We the People," said Moore. "I believe that my life experiences, professional expertise, abilities, skills, consistent and principled philosophy, and understanding of the issues uniquely qualify me to be an authentic representative of all the people of Marion County and positions me as the best candidate for the Marion County Commission. We need new, fresh, bold, and Moore to run against Amsden for commission PLEASESEEMOORE, PAGE3 Wagoner wins straw pollOne week after last weeks debate, members of Tea Party Solutions were asked to vote in a straw poll for school superintendent between George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner. Results were announced at this weeks meeting: Wagoner 53 votes, Tomyn 12 votes, and three voted for neither one. to the cat or break the toy. Lastly, dont let the cat use your hands or feet as prey. What may be cute if a kitten does it, might cause significant damage from an adult cat. The Shelter dog that we are highlighting this month is a special needs pup who will need a special parent. Eight week old Clawrissa, a rescue from a cruelty case, was born with front claws instead of paws. She only uses her left front foot for balance. Shes a Dachshund-Chihuahua mix who only weighs about 2 pounds right now and will stay small. She will need lots of patience in housetraining (puppy pads usually work well) and will need a quiet household with someone who is home a lot (all you retired folks qualify). She may eventually need surgery. She loves cuddles and car rides. If you think you have what it takes (time, patience, love, and money, not necessarily in that order) to give this little one a good life, call the Animal Center at 352-671-8700 and mention her ID # A064610. If you want to know more about the SPCA or want to come to our meeting, please call 352-362-0985. We need to let the front gate know so they will let you in to the OTOW community where we meet.

After chairman Terry handed out the awards lunch was served by the Royal Oaks Dining staff. As usual, it was outstanding, and a fitting way to end the tournament. Thanks to John Terry for coordinating the event, which was particularly difficult due to the format. One final note.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 BY MELANIE VITTITOW Special to the CitizenFirst, we would like to thank everyone who called about Bud, who did find a very good home. Some of the people asked to be placed on our waiting list so they can be called when we get another dog for adoption. What we really need are people who will foster a dog or cat until we can find him a forever home. We do not have a shelter, so fosters are vital to our operation. Sometimes the animal can be kept at their current home until a new owner is found, but often, we need to take one immediately and cant do that if we have no one to take it. If you enjoy pets, but dont want the permanent responsibility of pet ownership, fostering is perfect for you. Please call 352-362-0985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. While we are on the subject of fostering, we still have two cats to find homes for. They have been shown here before but Im including another picture. Kitten (the Multi) is 3 and Pumpkin (the black one) is 7. They have a nice large cat room to stay in but they are both loving cats and miss having someone to cuddle with. If you are considering a cat for a pet and dont want to cope with the energy of a kitten, these girls may be just right. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to schedule a meeting. And while we are discussing cats, let me share some advice I read from the Humane Society. Besides cuddling and lying in the sun, cats need to play. Indoor cats, especially, get bored with nothing to do. They can invent their own games if you have provided an assortment of cat toys, but its even better if you share the fun. Here are a few Dos and Donts of cat play. Do let the cat capture the prey many times during the play session. Especially with those bird toys, let the bird land so it can be stalked. The cat will get frustrated and just quit if it cant succeed occasionally. Dont jerk the toy out of the cats mouth or paws. It may cause injury Bud finds a very good home Kitten and Pumpkin.

He further stated, As county commissioner, I will work to encourage job growth here in Marion County by working to remove governmental road blocks such as heavy taxation and unnecessary regulation. It is not the government that best creates jobs it is the private sector. In addition, we need to support the services here in Marion County that help make this the best place in the world to live. We need to support our hospitals, fire and rescue workers, police and sheriff, and county staff. Moore has been in the finance field for the past 14 years. He has a Bachelors Degree in Business along with a Master of Divinity from Luther Rice University. He is also scheduled to complete a Masters Degree in Leadership from Luther Rice University in May of this year.

MOORECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ment district, then the taxpayers gave it to them. Theyll just be giving you your money back. McClain vigorously defended the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Im afraid the citizens are in trouble. In the revolution we were an ocean away from the tyrant, and he added that it was not that way in America. A lot of people dont understand why its so important. McClain said it was important to have a congressman from Marion County for the majority of local citizens. He pointed out that a legislator out of Hernando County would more than likely be our sitting congressman. If we had a strong congressman from Marion County, the difference that it would make for you is tremendous. We have to have a voice in Washington. We have to have people who will go fight for us. The next debate is scheduled for March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Tea Party Solutions meeting at Berean Baptist Church. It will feature candidates for District 5, the seat being vacated by Charlie Stone.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BEFORE THE POISON By Peter RobinsonHeres a heads up for Daphne du Maurier fans. Author Peter Robinson abandons his Inspector Banks series to bring us a romantic suspense novel set in an isolated, sprawling 18th century mansion where 60 years earlier a murder was committed. The storys replete with sighing winds, creaking floorboards, a ghost appearing in a bedroom mirror, and a portrait of the beautiful former mistress of the country manor. Chris Lowndes, a successful Hollywood musician who scored many Oscar-winning films, buys a mansion sight unseen located in the seclusion of Yorkshire Dales. Born in England he had always planned to move back with his beloved wife Laura. But she died and Lowndes, now somewhat elderly, must return alone. He knows nothing about the property hes bought except for a few photographs. But something about it holds a strange attraction for him: I had a curious sensation that the shy, halfhidden house was waiting for me, that it had been waiting for some time, he says. When he meets his attractive Realtor Heather, he senses that shes withholding the history of the mansion. After much coaxing she confesses that in 1953 the owner, Dr. Ernest Fox, was poisoned by his much younger wife Grace who was found guilty of the crime and hanged. With time on his hands and his grief still raw, Chris welcomes a distraction and finds it in trying to unravel the history of the Foxes. He begins frequenting local pubs where he can find patrons old enough to remember the trial. From them he learns that Grace had a lover much younger than herself and that the affair provided the prosecution with a motive for murder. He also learns that her attorney presented an anemic defense and that Grace seemed resigned to her fate throughout the trial. When he discovers Graces wartime journals written when she was a battlefield nurse during World War II, his interest morphs into obsession. The journals reveal a brave, heroic young woman so compassionate toward her patients that she could not possibly have taken a life. To that end, he sets out to prove her innocence, an objective that takes him to Paris and Cape Town. This is a dark and twisty novel that will thwart your attempt to solve the mystery at every turn. A fine read. Recommended. Dark, twisty novel is recommended BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Fundraising barbecue for Wagoner A fundraising barbecue for School Superintendent candidate Wally Wagoner will take place on Saturday, April 28, at Abshier Blueberry Farm, 3960 S.E. 115th St., Belleview, from 4 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $50.

Havenlea Dog Training Centre announced that it will be offering training in agility and flyball beginning March 15.

March madness is coming. College mens basketball playoffs involving 68 teams will play in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion. Scheduled to begin on March 13, it will conclude with the championship game on April 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley we hope to score a few points with punny stuff that didnt hit the basket.Coaching psychosisThe professor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test. He asked, How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next? A student raised his hand and answered, A basketball coach?Barnyard rulesIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls.Cell timeAfter a basketball game, the coach found a cell phone on the gym floor. He picked it up and handed it to one of the referees, saying, Heres your phone. What makes you think its mine? the referee asked. Easy, the coach replied. It says you missed 13 calls.Great losses?Basketball team pictures from the past 20 years hang on the walls in the colleges sports center. A player in the center of the front row in each picture holds a basketball identifying the year -93, -94, -95, etc. One day a freshman looking curiously at the photos said, Isnt it strange how the teams always lost by one point?Foul shotsHow can they call it March Madness, yet never mention anyone in the Democrat party, anyone in the Republican party, anyone in Hollywood, or Lady Gaga? Two Mexicans playing basketball is called Juan on Juan. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance. The basketball team at the cleaners academy went into a full court press. At the college basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. Fitting the basketball star with size 18 shoes was no small feat. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. Basketball nets in Hawaii are known as hulahoops. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, If you can pass through this door without bending, dont. Old basketball players never die; they just go on dribbling.No KiddingThe captain of a team said to the ref, My coach wants to know if there is a penalty for thinking. The ref said, No. The captain said, Well my coach thinks youre making horribly bad calls.NBA wonderMeanwhile, in the NBA a new sports sensation, New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin, came off the bench and helped win six games including a last-second shot to defeat the Toronto Raptors. Where else but in America can you drink a German beer and watch a Taiwanese basketball player on your Chinese TV beat a team from Canada? Jeremy Lin jerseys are the best NBA seller right now. How cool is this? And nice for the people making the jerseys to see a name they might actually recognize.Limping alongThe weather today was fantastic. We went outside and played basketball. Just as we were about out of time, I got the ball to take the winning shot, but I missed. One of my teammates demanded to know why I had missed such an easy shot. I sprained my ankle, I told him. Thats a lame excuse, he replied.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

The annual Clean Air Bike Ride on the Withlacoochee State Trail to benefit the Key Training Center will take place on Saturday, March 19. Registration is $25 for adults; children 12 and under are $12, which includes a continental breakfast for all entrants, lunch served at the Inverness Trailhead from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and an event t-shirt. There is no mass start allowing participants to commence their 14, 28, 48 or 100 mile treks from 7-9 p.m. from the Inverness Trailhead, 315 on N. Apopka Ave. Registrations may be made online or registration forms can be downloaded and checks mailed prior to the event, payable to Citrus County Roadrunners, PO Box 94, Inverness 34451-0094. Registrations are also accepted the day of the event with packet pick up from 7-9 a.m. The 39 Steps, a suspenseful-romanticcomedy, based on the 1935 movie by Alfred Hitchcock, is playing in the Insomniac Theater through March 18. Five actors play over 100 characters in this Tony-winner that kept Broadway rollicking for the past three years. It is part juicy spy novel, part Monty Python, and it preserves the brilliance originally created by the master of suspense. Go on the adventure with our suave hero Richard Hannay who learns from a beautiful spy about a plot of international espionage. The woman is killed in Hannays flat and he suddenly finds himself caught up in a race from London to Scotland in hopes of stopping military secrets from being smuggled out of the country. As he searches for the secret of The 39 Steps he is doggedly pursued by the police who believe he is a murderer. The play remains very close to the film, particularly in terms of its frenetic timing. But putting the movie a farce-like whirlwind adventure on stage requires ingenious theatrical devises to instantly go from a chase scene on a train, to a plane crash, transform into a luxurious Scottish manor, then to a London flat, or suddenly become The London Palladium. Also occurring at breakneck speed are nearly one-hundred costume changes, which often happen right before the audience in the blink of an eye. Performances run Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through March 18 at The Insomniac Theater, 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Ocala, on the Square. General seating is only $10. For more information or ticket reservations and purchases call the hotline at 352-897-0477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com.

Give it a chance to prove itself one way or another. The results could surprise both supporters and detractors. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about an upcoming venture causes you to make some last-minute adjustments in your plans.

But be careful that what you see is what you want. Appearances can often be deceiving.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) News about a change in the workplace carries with it a challenge you could find difficult to resist. Check it out. It could be what youve been waiting for. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Allowing your artistic nature full expression will help restore your spirits and will put you in the mood to take on that new career challenge. A Libra creates excitement. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Expect to happily plunge right into a hectic social whirl starting at weeks end. Your aspects favor new friendships as well as the strengthening of old relationships.

Early performance reports however are subject to lengthy questioning by Congress as to why the new program isnt accomplishing more and faster. One such sequence accompanied the $77 million Medicare fraud computer system which was launched last summer. In its first six months the system captured one suspicious payment and saved $7,591. The Senate Committee on Federal Financial Management said it was disappointed. We wonder whether the Senate is aware of how disappointed taxpayers are in their financial management? Medicare says assessment of the new anti-fraud program is too soon and unfair. They say taking their other activities into account, the potential savings in the first six months could easily exceed $20 million. The new computer system is designed to scan and analyze large numbers of claims and identify suspicious patterns before payments are made. Its the sort of stuff intelligence agencies do with electronic communications. Banks also have screening systems which alert them to suspicious uses of customers debit, credit, and ATM cards. The purpose of the $77 million dollar anti-fraud contract given to Northrup-Grumman (they make airplanes) was to discontinue the current practice of payand-chase, under which automatic payments are reviewed for fraud, waste, and abuse weeks after the money is spent. By the time the review is made and the chase begins the fraudsters can be sunning themselves on a beach in the Caribbean. Last year, under pay and chase, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) did recover $4.1 billion stolen or fraudulently received in prior years under Medicare and Medicaid, Thats not much when government spends $2.5 trillion annually for health care, and Medicare fraud alone is estimated to be $60 billion a year. Nonetheless, the president took a success bow at the press release. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 9, 2012 If you are a veteran or spouse of a veteran and you are in an assisted living community, or if you have a relative who is a veteran or spouse of a vet, Im going to tell you about a program I just found out about last week. Of course, a lot of you are smarter than I am, so you probably know about this already. But I didnt, and it cost my dad thousands of dollars over the years he was in assisted living before he died. The Veterans Administration, which I shall refer to as the VA, has a program under Disability Pension VA Benefits which pays so much per month to those who are qualified and are in an assisted living community (they like to be called communities, not facilities). You have to apply for it, and you cant apply until after you move in to an assisted living community. Once it is approved, according to one of my sources, it is retroactive to when you moved in and is paid monthly directly to the individual, not to the assisted living company. There are certain qualifications, such has having served in time of war (even if you didnt see combat) and receiving an honorable discharge. There are more, of course, as you would expect from a government agency. However, just the fact that some program is there is worth exploring. I found all this out because I started investigating last week for a family member who might have to go into assisted living. I went to three different communities, and each one told me about the program. One even gave me an information sheet, which has been passed on to the relative. What really annoys me is that in 1997, after my mother had died, we had to put my dad in assisted living because he had dementia, and we were afraid that harm might come to him if he were on his own. He was there for about seven years, in a place that has since been bought out by a different company. When we were investigating assisted living back 15 years ago, we knew very little about it. This time we knew what to ask, and the answers were very helpful. So if you think you might have someone who is eligible, ask the personnel, maybe the marketing director of administrator, to steer you in the right direction. Each of the people I talked to had someone they could refer me to for getting an application. Yes, youre dealing with the government, so we might sarcastically say Good luck. But lets face it. If theres a chance you can get some money out of the feds, by all means you should try.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Those who drive to work early in the morning will have to face a dismal fact beginning next week. Its going to be darker, later. This Sunday morning (or Saturday night), we go through the annual ritual of turning our clocks ahead. In the spring, that means we lose an hours sleep, and that the sun rises an hour later. Of course at the end of the day, we get a little more daylight, but that also means putting the little children and grandchildren to bed while its still daylight. Weve argued against changing back and forth for years, as have many Americans, but to no avail. Someone, somewhere, thinks this is a good idea. So we just have to live with it. One good thing about the twice-a-year time change: It serves as a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors. Make sure you keep yourself protected. You do have a working smoke detector, dont you? So dont forget, when you go to bed Saturday night, turn those clocks ahead, or else youll be an hour late for church on Sunday morning.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Once again, lets change the clocks Help for vets, spouses in assisted living Jim Flynn Columnist LETTER TO THE EDITOR Adventures of a federal anti-fraud squad Its not freeJust because you dont have to pay for it doesnt mean it is free. Someone has to pay the bill and no, the Insurance Company will not end up paying for it either. Every expense the company has is covered by the income received (premiums from those of us who pay our way), and if the expenses rise, so do our premiums. The federal and local governments raise our taxes. So much has been made of the question of Catholic hospitals having to pay birth control expenses, and that is ridiculous. I would guess 90 percent of us believe in birth control, but I have never thought it was the responsibility of someone else to pay for it. Pay for your own birth control! I question why the majority of women would believe government has the right to invade their privacy on such a matter. This is a family issue and should be treated as such. When we go down the road of free, where does it end? I get so tired of hearing, oh the government pays for it, be it health care, housing, food, or whatever. Our taxes should not be based on our governments being in the charity business. Its not my or your responsibility to pay for the above expenses unless we choose to do so. That is what charity is about, taking care of our loved ones when in need, through our local church, organizations set up for same, and our own families. We should always remember that the government doesnt have money, it is the taxpayers money. We raised and educated five children and it was a struggle. However, we never held our hand out or thought others should pay for their housing, schooling or health care. They were/are our responsibility and we were to take care of their needs. We have too many now searching for a government program to pay the way and that is not what individual responsibility is about. I am not talking about those who are truly in need, and there is a big difference. We have good programs in place for the truly needy, not for those who just use the system, holding their hand out. This has to stop! The above problems are magnified with the introduction of Obama Care. I sincerely request you thoroughly read it, if you do, there is no way you will approve what it does to our hospitals, doctors and to us as individuals. It is designed to destroy our health system through regulation, it is about more government power and it will take away our freedom more than anyone can imagine. Read it!!! Wa y ne R ack ley Ocala Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY CAPT. JIM BURTON Marion County Sheriffs OfficeI have noticed an old scam that is starting again. Recently some of our residents have fallen victim to a scam involving a supposed family member who is in trouble with the police or illegal gambling debts or some other issue. The victim receives a call from someone posing as a family member who needs money wired to get them out of a problem. The caller uses open ended questions or statements such as, Hey grandma, this is your favorite grandson, eliciting your response to call them byname. The victim, without verifying the story, rushes down to wire money to the family member in need, later to realize the person the victim thought they were helping is fine, safe and sound at home, after the victim calls to check on them, and they were never in any trouble. Please, if you get a call like this, call the family of the alleged family member or call the person yourself on their number that you already have, not the number provided by the caller, and verify the need is legitimate. This scam, as many similar scams to remove you from your money, relies upon your kneejerk reaction instead of taking a few minutes to verify the story before losing several thousands of dollars. If you need any assistance concerning this scam or similar scams, please contact us at the Marion County Sheriffs Office.Capt.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com An unspoken problem in identifying and delaying suspicious payment requests has been the Congressional directive to DHHS to make payments promptly, meaning 15 to 30 days. Now that DHHS has its new anti-fraud program, Congress expects both hurry-up payments and hurry-up recoveries. Maybe the Senate should consider passing a hurry-up federal budget, after three years without one. Another restraint on aggressive attention to fraud, waste, and abuse is an understandable aversion of federal workers to being seen as whistleblowers, a function which is not included in their job descriptions. In the case of the new fraud computer system were inclined to give DHHS the benefit of time and concede that Congress is premature in its assessment that they must have left out some zeroes. The deputy director of the DHHS anti-fraud program, a former federal prosecutor, says theyve turned up 2500 leads and identified 600 suspicious cases. Major investigations arent built in a day, a week, or even six months. Given a reasonable amount of time, there just might be a pot of gold at the end of this DHHS rainbow. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Birth controlAs for the Sandra Fouke birth control contraception issue a few points. To begin with, seeing her portrayed as a college student doesn't wash. She's no 18-year-old coed but an older-than-most law student of 30 or 31. Also she doesn't come across as too swift with her very excessive and comical contraception cost. This has nothing to do with health issues but the public paying for sex in our handout society. Today, we have people that knock success (being rich), reward mediocrity and failure with a president who apologies for our country to anyone over anything. Sad but true and let's hope things start changing in November. B ob Cronin Oak Run LETTER TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMN BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the CitizenReactions to my Heart Felt Thanks article that appeared in recent past issues of the Messengerand the Citizenhave been overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Thank you to all who have contacted me by phone or email. If, by some chance, I have not contacted you within a couple of weeks, please contact me again. I certainly am not above misplacing a name or phone number with all that has been going on at our home. Rest assured that there will be a follow up article in which I will reference the calls or emails from those of you who have said that my husbands experience spoke to you and your loved ones who have had similar experiences. This has prompted many of you to want to share your stories with others as well. I find that amazingly inspiring. My husband, Phil, has experienced some temporary setbacks. These have proved to be more like bumps in that road to recovery often heard about after major surgery for a serious condition. Many of you will recognize a similar pattern with your personal story as Phil has recently made two trips to the cardiologists office, had a short stint back in the hospital, made a visit to the lab for more blood work, and also paid a visit to the primary care physician (not necessarily in that order). There have been some additional concerns with new medications and some disconcerting bruising from those IV sites when a patient is prescribed Coumadin, Plavix, Heparin, aspirin, Prednisone or other such meds. I will be calling upon many of you who have magnificent stories of hope and recovery to share with others. Your insights into the excellent care provided by many of our local physicians and caregivers are heart-warming. So, too, are the stories that perhaps began in some other part of the country before you migrated to Florida. There has been such a response that I feel sure that this may well become a series of stories of hope and thanks that will be unfolding and perhaps may be told by a better writer than I am. Whoever writes Readers are truly wonderful and so appreciated these stories, the stories need to be told. The thing that really jumps out at methe primary home care giver is the stress and angst felt as we try to be so strong for our loved ones. We have to learn that same old lesson that we hear over and over. We cannot help others if we dont take care of ourselves. That often becomes a secondary issue that should be given more attention. Honestly, I must say that there are times when I feel my patience wearing so thin that I become ashamed or embarrassed because I am in such good health that I think that I should not let the situation be causing me to lose my cool. However, from having talked with others, this is not an uncommon occurrence. We are all human, and we have our limits. I am trying to remember that. Once again, thank you for giving me such encouragement by way of your calls, emails, and personal visits. I feel that when this kind of story is shared, each of us is empowered to do a better job than we might have without having heard that others went through overwhelming illnesses or have felt much the same as we feel. Please feel free to email me at pbgeissal@aol.com if you have criticism or comments. They will be appreciated.Priscilla Geissal is Fairfield Village writer for the West Marion Messenger.

Ifind it quite amusing that some of the brightest and richest people in our country do not seem to have a clue as to what they are doing. Most do not have the common sense that God gave to a caterpillar. As Abraham Lincoln used to say, common sense is not as common as it used to be. Amen, to that one. The financial experts are telling us that we need to buy gold or silver to safeguard our investments. I am way ahead of the game. Several years ago, I got a gold tooth. Fortunately, for me, I got it before the financial crisis in our country. I cannot tell you what a remarkable feeling it is to walk around with your fortune in your mouth. I hear about all of the investment schemes that are supposed to make me rich. I have a sneaking suspicion that the only people getting rich are those with the investment schemes. They want us to buy stocks and bonds and futures. I never heard of anything so silly in all my life. What would I do with stocks, bonds and futures, whatever in the world they are, in my portfolio. I have no idea what a portfolio is but I am certain it has something to do with these investment schemes. I just do not want anybody folioing around with my port, thank you very much, sir. If I got my facts right, and I looked it up in the dictionary, port has something to do with wine. Why would I want to put a bottle of port into my folio and pretend it is some kind of an investment? I really have to give it to these investment schemers. They really know how to pull the wool over our eyes. I want to go on record as saying that they are not pulling any wool over my eyes. Just leave my wool alone. If I want my wool pulled, it certainly will not be over my eyes, I will tell you that right here. This wool pulling sounds more like sheep fleecing to me, and I want nothing to do with it. For me I have discovered a way of safeguarding my wealth. My basic financial philosophy is simply spend less than I make. I know that is a revolutionary concept in todays world, but it has stood me in good stead for many a year. We live in a culture that has absolutely no spending control whatsoever. This culture does not know the relationship between saving money and spending money. For example. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came home the other day and in a very exuberant tone told me how much she saved at the grocery store. I saved $119.23 today at the grocery store. Isnt that terrific? Being the humble, demure sort of guy that I am, I did not ask her a question that was buzzing around my head at the time. The question was, how much did it cost me to save you that much money? Having a happy home is more important to me than exploring truth at its core. Especially in this area. My financial strategy down through the years has been a very regular and wise investment plan. I am not quite sure how I came up with this marvelous plan, but one day it just hit me. Ever since that time, I have been using my financial investment plan. My investment plan only cost me $19.79 back in the year of our Lord 1986. Since that time, it has faithfully served me and I have no complaints. I have through the years thought about upgrading my investment plan, but then what would the purpose be? Back in 1986, I saw in the mens department of the JCPenney store in our community a very nicely tailored navy blue and gold striped gentlemans vest. It immediately caught my attention and as I examined it, I noticed that inside this vest was a variety of pockets. I looked at them and that is when it hit me. Down through the years I have often wondered why somebody else did not come up with this idea. I guess I am just a genius. I bought the vest and brought it home and hung it in my closet after I first labeled each of the inside pockets. There was a pocket for dollar bills, one for five-dollar bills, one for ten-dollar bills and one that I do not use as often for $20 bills. Every time I have a little bit of change left over I go to my closet turned to my best and invest that money where nobody can find it. My investment plan is more or less an in and out exchange program. When I have a need, I sometimes divest some money. Through the years, it has been a great blessing in my investment plan and is something that I am rather proud of. Solomon put it in great perspective concerning wealth when he said, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain ( Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). My investment plan is well buttoned up for future security.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

And they stayed to become part of the fabric of America. Today 36.9 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry, second only to those who claim German heritage, and more than eight times the population in Ireland, according to the U.S. Census Bureaus 2009 statistics. Enduring hardships and privations, the foods these Irish immigrants cooked in the new land would have replicated foods that reminded them of home dishes such as cottage pie and Irish apple cake. Below are recipes for these dishes from Darina Allens Forgotten Skills of Cooking, (Kyle Books, 2009) now available in the U.S. Allen, considered the Julia Child of Ireland, is on a mission to teach every day home cooks the kind of cooking skills early Irish immigrants would have practiced. There is a real revolution going on about food a longing, a crav ing to re-learn life skills like butchery, keeping chickens, growing vegetables and curing meat, Allen said. The popularity of her Forgotten Skills classes at her renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland, inspired Allen to write the Forgotten Skills cookbook. Allen also has re-issued her Irish Traditional Cooking (Kyle Books), just in time for St. Patricks Day. The recipes below feature Irish dairy products because dairying has been a part of Ireland for centuries, long before potatoes. In Ireland we can grow grass like nowhere else in the world, said Allen with pride. So we have fantastic butter, lovely cream and, of course, cheese. Butter is the fat of the land. Our animals are grass-fed. Grass-fed gives more flavor and more com plex nutrients. This is what we are. Dairy products come from this beautiful, lush green grass. Try the recipes below for a St. Patricks Day celebration. Its easy to repli cate Irish flavors with butter and cheeses made in Ireland and imported to the U.S. under the Kerrygold name. They are widely available at supermarkets and specialty stores throughout the country. And be sure to do as the Irish do: no celebration is complete without a selection of cheeses with good bread and chutney. The cheese board below features Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, Cashel Blue farmhouse cheese, Dubliner and Blarney Castle Irish cheese. For more St. Patricks Day recipes, visit www.kerrygoldusa.com.Cottage Pie with Garlic ButterThe cheese in this crust and the lump of garlic butter that melts into the center make this into something very special. Serves 6 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, mashed 1 small onion, chopped 1 pound beef, freshly ground 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup dry white or red wine 1 cup beef stock 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon tomato paste Roux (recipe follows) Salt and freshly ground pepper For the Topping 3 pounds baking potatoes, unpeeled 1 cup whole milk, boiling Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional) 1/4 cup grated Dubliner cheese 1/4 cup grated Kerrygold Aged Cheddar To Serve Garlic Butter (recipe follows) Green salad Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and onion and fry until soft and slightly brown. Increase heat, add ground beef and thyme and fry until beef changes color. Add wine, half the stock, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the unpeeled potatoes, then peel them. Add boiling milk and mash potatoes while they are still hot. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add butter and chives, if using. Preheat the oven to 350F. Bring the rest of the stock to a boil and thicken it well with roux. Stir it into beef it should be thick but still juicy. Taste and correct seasoning. Put meat mixture into one large or six indivi dual pie dishes. Pipe or spread mashed potato mixtureoverthetop.Sprinklewithgratedcheeses. Bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden and slightly crispy. Serve with garlic butter and a green salad. RouxRoux can be stored in a cool place and used as required, or it can be made up on the spot if preferred to thicken up a sauce. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter Scant cup all-purpose flour Meltbutterinapanandcookflourinitfor2min utes on low heat, stirring occasionally. It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator.Garlic ButterSlather over bruschetta or toast. Also great with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 3 to 5 cloves crushed garlic A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice Whip butter, then add in parsley, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice at a time. Roll into butter pats or form into a roll and wrap in parchment paper or foil, twisting each end. Refrigerate to harden.CelebratingSt.PatricksDaySift flour and baking powder into bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of bread crumbs then add 1/3 cup super fine sugar. Make a well in the center and mix to a soft dough with beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a board divide in two. Put one half onto an oven proof plate and press it out with floured fingers to cover the base. Peel, core, and chop up apples. Place them on the dough and tuck in cloves, if using. Sprinkle over some or all remaining sugar, depending on the sweetness of the apples. Roll out the second half of the pastry and fit it on top easier said than done as this pastry is more like scone dough and as a result is very soft. Press the sides together, cut a slit through the lid, egg wash, and bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on top. Dredge with super fine sugar and serve warm with raw sugar and softly whipped cream. These recipes are adapted from Forgotten Skills of Cooking. Recipe introductions are from Darina Allen.Irish Apple CakeIrish Apple Cake varies from house to house, and the technique has been passed from mother to daughter in farmhouses all over the country for generations.

There was also a 5/050 raffle, miscellaneous New England related games, and other friendly socializing activities. Please note that the March 15 meeting time has been changed to 3:30 at the Arbor Club Ballroom. Scheduled for this meeting date is a Pot Luck dinner and entertainment by the Golden Troopers, performers from the Ocala Civic Theater! Membership is open to residents of On Top of the World who have resided and/or have an interest in the Northeast. Annual dues are $10 per person.Softball LeagueThe Great Clips team is starting to show its dominance over the rest of the league; with the help of its power hitting short stop, it has pulled five games in front of its closest rival. It seems they are going to be difficult to catch for the rest of the season, unless the other teams can pull themselves together. The closest rival is the Dr. Dunn team, but they seem to be faltering and are having a difficult time putting their hitting team together and are now in danger of losing their second place position. The Florida Eye team has pulled within one game of The Dr. Dunn team and have managed to get their hitters on track again. The Cebert Wealth team was in next to last month and has climbed to fourth place, as the young Tee Pee Tire team is having difficulty scoring runs and has fallen to fifth place, but they should be coming back, as they demonstrated in their last game. The Wiseway Team continues to struggle with lapses in fielding and the inability to hold on to leads. Its going to be an interesting next couple of months as we begin to wind down to the end of the season!

The editors of Sunshine Review, an online non-profit watchdog group for open government, handed out 217 awards to less than four percent of the 6,000 government websites it scored in February. The organization graded MCPS an Afor its public information transparency, the same grade as the two previous years. Marions district web site www.marion.k12.fl.us scored a near-perfect 10 on a transparency checklist evaluating the online accessibility of budgets, meetings, elected and administrative officials, contracts, audits, public records, academics, and background checks. As in previous years, the final taxes category proved to be the districts only online weakness, with Sunshine Review wanting more tax information posted. The district will attempt to resolve this to be even more transparent. State-wide, Sunshine Review gave Floridas 74 public and special school districts an overall C. Only 13 of the states 74 school districts earned an A. Sunshine Review, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, launched in July 2008 as a customer service hot-line for government transparency and accountability. The organization used a Point Transparency Checklist to analyze 50 state websites and more than 6,000 local government websites for the latest round of Sunny Awards.

and the qualifications for various licenses. Paul Mac McIntyre, owner of The Right Training firearms school and Cherrywoods own, Ramberto Rambo Rodriguez, an NRA Instructor, spoke about a special day of instruction and shooting available to Cherrywood Residents. On March 10 and March 27, classes will be offered at discount prices that qualify individuals to receive their Concealed Weapons Permit and how to handle, safely store and competently operate firearms. There are even special classes for Women Only if some of the ladies are a little bit shy about showing off their firearms skills in front of the men. The class was informative and the offer excellent. Contact Mac at 352-350-2855 to sign up or get more info. Just a footnote for the Veterans; next month is election of officers so get your nominations in to Bill Mahar, club president. Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future; or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on a familiar face to many of us who take part in the activities in our neighborhood, Fred OHern. Fred is retired from the U.S. Air Force where he served for 28 years, earning the rank of Command Chief Master Sergeant. He served most of those years in Explosives, Ordnance and Demolition (EOD). His areas of assignment varied from Laos, to Iran, with Italy, Thailand, Germany and his favorite, England also part of his 22 years of overseas service. One of the reasons he enjoyed England so much is that he met his wife Marion there. They have been married 36 years and have one son, Patrick who lives with his wife in Washington. He also has two grandsons, Jacob and Corey. Corey is scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan and Jacob will soon report to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. Fred speaks with pride of his grandsons and his eyes light up when he talks about his great-granddaughter Tatyem. Following his retirement from the Air Force, Fred took a position as the postmaster of Coventry England. He served there for 10 years before retiring. Fred and Marion then moved to Florida and the Cherrywood Estates in 1999. Since that time his energy has been spent on veterans projects, social activities and charities connected with the community. Ever energetic and eager to serve, Fred is a charter member and was president of the Veterans Club for eight years. He is active on the Social Committee which his brother Jay chairs, and is co-emcee of Trivia Nights. He also heads up Bocce Ball on Saturday nights. The Social Committee holds several events through out the year such as Dingus Day; Fun in the Sun; 100 Days of Summer and many more, all of which Fred helps promote and carry out. Fred describes himself as a natural extrovert who enjoys people and making Cherrywood a united and fun community. We would have to say that after his many years of service to this cause, he has been extremely successful in reaching his goal. The affection he holds for his friends and neighbors is obvious in everything he does so when you see Fred, give him a warm handshake and say Thank you. It is people like him that make Cherrywood a great place to live. From Your Reporter:Your comments and suggestions for stories are always welcome so please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Saturday morning, March 3, was warm and dewy. Just before dawn, at 6:30 in the morning, 11 of the 15 volunteers who signed up for the Marion County Kidney Foundation 5K fundraiser assembled at the Cherrywood Clubhouse. Wearing the lime green T-shirts provided by and personally delivered by Foundation President Delores Pina to team captain Holly Bragdon; the bright group posed for photos. All agreed to dedicate their run to a much loved and respected neighbor, Skip Smith. Skip is in the hospital bravely fighting a lifethreatening illness. Many held Skips picture for the group photo. Soon the whole group had car pooled the 25 minutes to the Greenway Trailhead Park. Eager to begin their adventure, there was never a word of complaint from the team about the early morning hour; the walk; or the sacrifice of their Saturday morning relaxation. All 11 of our walkers/runners assembled at the starting line with a few hundred other individuals. They took their place, stretched, and looked ahead. At 8:05 they were off. While the teams walked, I talked with one of the lead volunteers for the Marion County Kidney Foundation, Debbie Schlosser. Debbie has a special interest in the Foundation because not only has she worked for the Ocala Kidney Group for the past 23 years, but her husband and sister-in-law are both coping with Kidney disease. Debbie happily reported that this years 5K fund raiser was approximately 25 percent bigger than last year with more vendors and participants than ever before. She estimated that there were between 580 and 590 people taking part. All the funds raised go to patients and awareness programs in Marion County, Debbie said adding that she loved to educate the young people about preventing kidney disease. A brief stroll around the grounds listening to the live music and seeing many smiling faces at the numerous vendors tables was about all I had time to get in before heading to the finish line. Our walkers were getting close and I didnt want to miss being there. Sure enough, just less than an hour after starting, our team came strolling rapidly down the trail. With big grins on their faces and hands in the air they crossed the finish line to the applause of the many onlookers and volunteers who stood and cheered. Looking as fresh as when they began, they all did a great job and not only finished the race but some even finished in second, third and fourth place for their age divisions. Richard Hurley was advised that he had come in second for his age group and smiling said, I wasnt even trying. Some of those who signed up were unable to take part because of other commitments and responsibilities, but their support is no less appreciated. Those contributors were Sandee Spencer, Marty Dean, Bill Mahar and a kidney cancer survivor, Arleen Mayberry. Thank you all for your contribution and we look forward to seeing you on the trail next year. Our team, the Cherrywood Cuties (sorry guys) was made up of Marilyn Wood, Ruth Hurley, Donna James, Eve Houghtaling, Kathy Robson, Joan Siegel, Gerry Giovanniello, Mick James, Jenny Arturi, Rich Hurley and team captain, Holly Bragdon. In many emails with coordinator, Kathy Cotto of the Kidney Foundation, I have been told how much it meant to have Cherrywood participate in this years 5K. I pass along their sincere thank you to all of you who supported and took part. May I add my personal thanks to each of you? You should be proud of what youve accomplished and commended for your dedication, hard work and sacrifice. Youve made it possible to ease suffering; taken steps to help prevent a terrible illness and made the world a better place because you were there. Well done! Garden ClubOn March 21 at 11 a.m., the Garden Club will gather for another informative and interesting meeting. Bring along your old cuttings and clippings to learn how to rejuvenate and care for them. Learn more about this years planting season also. Dont forget the Master Gardner Plant Sale on March 10 & 11 at the Agriculture Center on Old Jacksonville Road.

and the qualifications for various licenses. Paul Mac McIntyre, owner of The Right Training firearms school and Cherrywoods own, Ramberto Rambo Rodriguez, an NRA Instructor, spoke about a special day of instruction and shooting available to Cherrywood Residents. On March 10 and March 27, classes will be offered at discount prices that qualify individuals to receive their Concealed Weapons Permit and how to handle, safely store and competently operate firearms. There are even special classes for Women Only if some of the ladies are a little bit shy about showing off their firearms skills in front of the men. The class was informative and the offer excellent. Contact Mac at 352-350-2855 to sign up or get more info. Just a footnote for the Veterans; next month is election of officers so get your nominations in to Bill Mahar, club president. Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future; or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on a familiar face to many of us who take part in the activities in our neighborhood, Fred OHern. Fred is retired from the U.S. Air Force where he served for 28 years, earning the rank of Command Chief Master Sergeant. He served most of those years in Explosives, Ordnance and Demolition (EOD). His areas of assignment varied from Laos, to Iran, with Italy, Thailand, Germany and his favorite, England also part of his 22 years of overseas service. One of the reasons he enjoyed England so much is that he met his wife Marion there. They have been married 36 years and have one son, Patrick who lives with his wife in Washington. He also has two grandsons, Jacob and Corey. Corey is scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan and Jacob will soon report to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. Fred speaks with pride of his grandsons and his eyes light up when he talks about his great-granddaughter Tatyem. Following his retirement from the Air Force, Fred took a position as the postmaster of Coventry England. He served there for 10 years before retiring. Fred and Marion then moved to Florida and the Cherrywood Estates in 1999. Since that time his energy has been spent on veterans projects, social activities and charities connected with the community. Ever energetic and eager to serve, Fred is a charter member and was president of the Veterans Club for eight years. He is active on the Social Committee which his brother Jay chairs, and is co-emcee of Trivia Nights. He also heads up Bocce Ball on Saturday nights. The Social Committee holds several events through out the year such as Dingus Day; Fun in the Sun; 100 Days of Summer and many more, all of which Fred helps promote and carry out. Fred describes himself as a natural extrovert who enjoys people and making Cherrywood a united and fun community. We would have to say that after his many years of service to this cause, he has been extremely successful in reaching his goal. The affection he holds for his friends and neighbors is obvious in everything he does so when you see Fred, give him a warm handshake and say Thank you. It is people like him that make Cherrywood a great place to live. From Your Reporter:Your comments and suggestions for stories are always welcome so please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Saturday morning, March 3, was warm and dewy. Just before dawn, at 6:30 in the morning, 11 of the 15 volunteers who signed up for the Marion County Kidney Foundation 5K fundraiser assembled at the Cherrywood Clubhouse. Wearing the lime green T-shirts provided by and personally delivered by Foundation President Delores Pina to team captain Holly Bragdon; the bright group posed for photos. All agreed to dedicate their run to a much loved and respected neighbor, Skip Smith. Skip is in the hospital bravely fighting a lifethreatening illness. Many held Skips picture for the group photo. Soon the whole group had car pooled the 25 minutes to the Greenway Trailhead Park. Eager to begin their adventure, there was never a word of complaint from the team about the early morning hour; the walk; or the sacrifice of their Saturday morning relaxation. All 11 of our walkers/runners assembled at the starting line with a few hundred other individuals. They took their place, stretched, and looked ahead. At 8:05 they were off. While the teams walked, I talked with one of the lead volunteers for the Marion County Kidney Foundation, Debbie Schlosser. Debbie has a special interest in the Foundation because not only has she worked for the Ocala Kidney Group for the past 23 years, but her husband and sister-in-law are both coping with Kidney disease. Debbie happily reported that this years 5K fund raiser was approximately 25 percent bigger than last year with more vendors and participants than ever before. She estimated that there were between 580 and 590 people taking part. All the funds raised go to patients and awareness programs in Marion County, Debbie said adding that she loved to educate the young people about preventing kidney disease. A brief stroll around the grounds listening to the live music and seeing many smiling faces at the numerous vendors tables was about all I had time to get in before heading to the finish line. Our walkers were getting close and I didnt want to miss being there. Sure enough, just less than an hour after starting, our team came strolling rapidly down the trail. With big grins on their faces and hands in the air they crossed the finish line to the applause of the many onlookers and volunteers who stood and cheered. Looking as fresh as when they began, they all did a great job and not only finished the race but some even finished in second, third and fourth place for their age divisions. Richard Hurley was advised that he had come in second for his age group and smiling said, I wasnt even trying. Some of those who signed up were unable to take part because of other commitments and responsibilities, but their support is no less appreciated. Those contributors were Sandee Spencer, Marty Dean, Bill Mahar and a kidney cancer survivor, Arleen Mayberry. Thank you all for your contribution and we look forward to seeing you on the trail next year. Our team, the Cherrywood Cuties (sorry guys) was made up of Marilyn Wood, Ruth Hurley, Donna James, Eve Houghtaling, Kathy Robson, Joan Siegel, Gerry Giovanniello, Mick James, Jenny Arturi, Rich Hurley and team captain, Holly Bragdon. In many emails with coordinator, Kathy Cotto of the Kidney Foundation, I have been told how much it meant to have Cherrywood participate in this years 5K. I pass along their sincere thank you to all of you who supported and took part. May I add my personal thanks to each of you? You should be proud of what youve accomplished and commended for your dedication, hard work and sacrifice. Youve made it possible to ease suffering; taken steps to help prevent a terrible illness and made the world a better place because you were there. Well done! Garden ClubOn March 21 at 11 a.m., the Garden Club will gather for another informative and interesting meeting. Bring along your old cuttings and clippings to learn how to rejuvenate and care for them. Learn more about this years planting season also. Dont forget the Master Gardner Plant Sale on March 10 & 11 at the Agriculture Center on Old Jacksonville Road. There will be lots of plants and information there to help you make 2012 your best year yet for gardening.Say CheeseTheres been a lot of interest expressed in starting a photo club.

Membership is open to residents of On Top of the World who have resided and/or have an interest in the Northeast. Annual dues are $10 per person.Softball LeagueThe Great Clips team is starting to show its dominance over the rest of the league; with the help of its power hitting short stop, it has pulled five games in front of its closest rival. It seems they are going to be difficult to catch for the rest of the season, unless the other teams can pull themselves together. The closest rival is the Dr. Dunn team, but they seem to be faltering and are having a difficult time putting their hitting team together and are now in danger of losing their second place position. The Florida Eye team has pulled within one game of The Dr. Dunn team and have managed to get their hitters on track again. The Cebert Wealth team was in next to last month and has climbed to fourth place, as the young Tee Pee Tire team is having difficulty scoring runs and has fallen to fifth place, but they should be coming back, as they demonstrated in their last game. The Wiseway Team continues to struggle with lapses in fielding and the inability to hold on to leads. Its going to be an interesting next couple of months as we begin to wind down to the end of the season!

The editors of Sunshine Review, an online non-profit watchdog group for open government, handed out 217 awards to less than four percent of the 6,000 government websites it scored in February. The organization graded MCPS an Afor its public information transparency, the same grade as the two previous years. Marions district web site www.marion.k12.fl.us scored a near-perfect 10 on a transparency checklist evaluating the online accessibility of budgets, meetings, elected and administrative officials, contracts, audits, public records, academics, and background checks. As in previous years, the final taxes category proved to be the districts only online weakness, with Sunshine Review wanting more tax information posted. The district will attempt to resolve this to be even more transparent. State-wide, Sunshine Review gave Floridas 74 public and special school districts an overall C. Only 13 of the states 74 school districts earned an A. Sunshine Review, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, launched in July 2008 as a customer service hot-line for government transparency and accountability. The organization used a Point Transparency Checklist to analyze 50 state websites and more than 6,000 local government websites for the latest round of Sunny Awards.

And they stayed to become part of the fabric of America. Today 36.9 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry, second only to those who claim German heritage, and more than eight times the population in Ireland, according to the U.S. Census Bureaus 2009 statistics. Enduring hardships and privations, the foods these Irish immigrants cooked in the new land would have replicated foods that reminded them of home dishes such as cottage pie and Irish apple cake. Below are recipes for these dishes from Darina Allens Forgotten Skills of Cooking, (Kyle Books, 2009) now available in the U.S. Allen, considered the Julia Child of Ireland, is on a mission to teach every day home cooks the kind of cooking skills early Irish immigrants would have practiced. There is a real revolution going on about food a longing, a crav ing to re-learn life skills like butchery, keeping chickens, growing vegetables and curing meat, Allen said. The popularity of her Forgotten Skills classes at her renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland, inspired Allen to write the Forgotten Skills cookbook. Allen also has re-issued her Irish Traditional Cooking (Kyle Books), just in time for St. Patricks Day. The recipes below feature Irish dairy products because dairying has been a part of Ireland for centuries, long before potatoes. In Ireland we can grow grass like nowhere else in the world, said Allen with pride. So we have fantastic butter, lovely cream and, of course, cheese. Butter is the fat of the land. Our animals are grass-fed. Grass-fed gives more flavor and more com plex nutrients. This is what we are. Dairy products come from this beautiful, lush green grass. Try the recipes below for a St. Patricks Day celebration. Its easy to repli cate Irish flavors with butter and cheeses made in Ireland and imported to the U.S. under the Kerrygold name. They are widely available at supermarkets and specialty stores throughout the country. And be sure to do as the Irish do: no celebration is complete without a selection of cheeses with good bread and chutney. The cheese board below features Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, Cashel Blue farmhouse cheese, Dubliner and Blarney Castle Irish cheese.

Serves 6 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, mashed 1 small onion, chopped 1 pound beef, freshly ground 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup dry white or red wine 1 cup beef stock 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon tomato paste Roux (recipe follows) Salt and freshly ground pepper For the Topping 3 pounds baking potatoes, unpeeled 1 cup whole milk, boiling Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional) 1/4 cup grated Dubliner cheese 1/4 cup grated Kerrygold Aged Cheddar To Serve Garlic Butter (recipe follows) Green salad Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and onion and fry until soft and slightly brown. Increase heat, add ground beef and thyme and fry until beef changes color. Add wine, half the stock, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the unpeeled potatoes, then peel them. Add boiling milk and mash potatoes while they are still hot. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add butter and chives, if using. Preheat the oven to 350F. Bring the rest of the stock to a boil and thicken it well with roux. Stir it into beef it should be thick but still juicy. Taste and correct seasoning. Put meat mixture into one large or six indivi dual pie dishes. Pipe or spread mashed potato mixtureoverthetop.Sprinklewithgratedcheeses. Bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden and slightly crispy. Serve with garlic butter and a green salad.

It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator.Garlic ButterSlather over bruschetta or toast. Also great with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 3 to 5 cloves crushed garlic A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice Whip butter, then add in parsley, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice at a time. Roll into butter pats or form into a roll and wrap in parchment paper or foil, twisting each end. Refrigerate to harden.CelebratingSt.PatricksDaySift flour and baking powder into bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of bread crumbs then add 1/3 cup super fine sugar. Make a well in the center and mix to a soft dough with beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a board divide in two. Put one half onto an oven proof plate and press it out with floured fingers to cover the base. Peel, core, and chop up apples. Place them on the dough and tuck in cloves, if using. Sprinkle over some or all remaining sugar, depending on the sweetness of the apples. Roll out the second half of the pastry and fit it on top easier said than done as this pastry is more like scone dough and as a result is very soft. Press the sides together, cut a slit through the lid, egg wash, and bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on top. Dredge with super fine sugar and serve warm with raw sugar and softly whipped cream. These recipes are adapted from Forgotten Skills of Cooking.

Ifind it quite amusing that some of the brightest and richest people in our country do not seem to have a clue as to what they are doing. Most do not have the common sense that God gave to a caterpillar. As Abraham Lincoln used to say, common sense is not as common as it used to be. Amen, to that one. The financial experts are telling us that we need to buy gold or silver to safeguard our investments. I am way ahead of the game. Several years ago, I got a gold tooth. Fortunately, for me, I got it before the financial crisis in our country. I cannot tell you what a remarkable feeling it is to walk around with your fortune in your mouth. I hear about all of the investment schemes that are supposed to make me rich. I have a sneaking suspicion that the only people getting rich are those with the investment schemes. They want us to buy stocks and bonds and futures. I never heard of anything so silly in all my life. What would I do with stocks, bonds and futures, whatever in the world they are, in my portfolio. I have no idea what a portfolio is but I am certain it has something to do with these investment schemes. I just do not want anybody folioing around with my port, thank you very much, sir. If I got my facts right, and I looked it up in the dictionary, port has something to do with wine. Why would I want to put a bottle of port into my folio and pretend it is some kind of an investment? I really have to give it to these investment schemers. They really know how to pull the wool over our eyes. I want to go on record as saying that they are not pulling any wool over my eyes. Just leave my wool alone. If I want my wool pulled, it certainly will not be over my eyes, I will tell you that right here. This wool pulling sounds more like sheep fleecing to me, and I want nothing to do with it. For me I have discovered a way of safeguarding my wealth. My basic financial philosophy is simply spend less than I make. I know that is a revolutionary concept in todays world, but it has stood me in good stead for many a year. We live in a culture that has absolutely no spending control whatsoever. This culture does not know the relationship between saving money and spending money. For example. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came home the other day and in a very exuberant tone told me how much she saved at the grocery store. I saved $119.23 today at the grocery store. Isnt that terrific? Being the humble, demure sort of guy that I am, I did not ask her a question that was buzzing around my head at the time. The question was, how much did it cost me to save you that much money? Having a happy home is more important to me than exploring truth at its core. Especially in this area. My financial strategy down through the years has been a very regular and wise investment plan. I am not quite sure how I came up with this marvelous plan, but one day it just hit me. Ever since that time, I have been using my financial investment plan. My investment plan only cost me $19.79 back in the year of our Lord 1986. Since that time, it has faithfully served me and I have no complaints. I have through the years thought about upgrading my investment plan, but then what would the purpose be? Back in 1986, I saw in the mens department of the JCPenney store in our community a very nicely tailored navy blue and gold striped gentlemans vest. It immediately caught my attention and as I examined it, I noticed that inside this vest was a variety of pockets. I looked at them and that is when it hit me. Down through the years I have often wondered why somebody else did not come up with this idea. I guess I am just a genius. I bought the vest and brought it home and hung it in my closet after I first labeled each of the inside pockets. There was a pocket for dollar bills, one for five-dollar bills, one for ten-dollar bills and one that I do not use as often for $20 bills. Every time I have a little bit of change left over I go to my closet turned to my best and invest that money where nobody can find it. My investment plan is more or less an in and out exchange program. When I have a need, I sometimes divest some money. Through the years, it has been a great blessing in my investment plan and is something that I am rather proud of. Solomon put it in great perspective concerning wealth when he said, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain ( Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). My investment plan is well buttoned up for future security.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com An unspoken problem in identifying and delaying suspicious payment requests has been the Congressional directive to DHHS to make payments promptly, meaning 15 to 30 days. Now that DHHS has its new anti-fraud program, Congress expects both hurry-up payments and hurry-up recoveries. Maybe the Senate should consider passing a hurry-up federal budget, after three years without one. Another restraint on aggressive attention to fraud, waste, and abuse is an understandable aversion of federal workers to being seen as whistleblowers, a function which is not included in their job descriptions. In the case of the new fraud computer system were inclined to give DHHS the benefit of time and concede that Congress is premature in its assessment that they must have left out some zeroes. The deputy director of the DHHS anti-fraud program, a former federal prosecutor, says theyve turned up 2500 leads and identified 600 suspicious cases. Major investigations arent built in a day, a week, or even six months. Given a reasonable amount of time, there just might be a pot of gold at the end of this DHHS rainbow. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Birth controlAs for the Sandra Fouke birth control contraception issue a few points. To begin with, seeing her portrayed as a college student doesn't wash. She's no 18-year-old coed but an older-than-most law student of 30 or 31. Also she doesn't come across as too swift with her very excessive and comical contraception cost. This has nothing to do with health issues but the public paying for sex in our handout society. Today, we have people that knock success (being rich), reward mediocrity and failure with a president who apologies for our country to anyone over anything. Sad but true and let's hope things start changing in November. B ob Cronin Oak Run LETTER TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMN BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the CitizenReactions to my Heart Felt Thanks article that appeared in recent past issues of the Messengerand the Citizenhave been overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Thank you to all who have contacted me by phone or email. If, by some chance, I have not contacted you within a couple of weeks, please contact me again. I certainly am not above misplacing a name or phone number with all that has been going on at our home. Rest assured that there will be a follow up article in which I will reference the calls or emails from those of you who have said that my husbands experience spoke to you and your loved ones who have had similar experiences. This has prompted many of you to want to share your stories with others as well. I find that amazingly inspiring. My husband, Phil, has experienced some temporary setbacks. These have proved to be more like bumps in that road to recovery often heard about after major surgery for a serious condition. Many of you will recognize a similar pattern with your personal story as Phil has recently made two trips to the cardiologists office, had a short stint back in the hospital, made a visit to the lab for more blood work, and also paid a visit to the primary care physician (not necessarily in that order). There have been some additional concerns with new medications and some disconcerting bruising from those IV sites when a patient is prescribed Coumadin, Plavix, Heparin, aspirin, Prednisone or other such meds. I will be calling upon many of you who have magnificent stories of hope and recovery to share with others. Your insights into the excellent care provided by many of our local physicians and caregivers are heart-warming. So, too, are the stories that perhaps began in some other part of the country before you migrated to Florida. There has been such a response that I feel sure that this may well become a series of stories of hope and thanks that will be unfolding and perhaps may be told by a better writer than I am. Whoever writes Readers are truly wonderful and so appreciated these stories, the stories need to be told. The thing that really jumps out at methe primary home care giver is the stress and angst felt as we try to be so strong for our loved ones. We have to learn that same old lesson that we hear over and over. We cannot help others if we dont take care of ourselves. That often becomes a secondary issue that should be given more attention. Honestly, I must say that there are times when I feel my patience wearing so thin that I become ashamed or embarrassed because I am in such good health that I think that I should not let the situation be causing me to lose my cool. However, from having talked with others, this is not an uncommon occurrence. We are all human, and we have our limits. I am trying to remember that. Once again, thank you for giving me such encouragement by way of your calls, emails, and personal visits. I feel that when this kind of story is shared, each of us is empowered to do a better job than we might have without having heard that others went through overwhelming illnesses or have felt much the same as we feel. Please feel free to email me at pbgeissal@aol.com if you have criticism or comments. They will be appreciated.Priscilla Geissal is Fairfield Village writer for the West Marion Messenger.

Early performance reports however are subject to lengthy questioning by Congress as to why the new program isnt accomplishing more and faster. One such sequence accompanied the $77 million Medicare fraud computer system which was launched last summer. In its first six months the system captured one suspicious payment and saved $7,591. The Senate Committee on Federal Financial Management said it was disappointed. We wonder whether the Senate is aware of how disappointed taxpayers are in their financial management? Medicare says assessment of the new anti-fraud program is too soon and unfair. They say taking their other activities into account, the potential savings in the first six months could easily exceed $20 million. The new computer system is designed to scan and analyze large numbers of claims and identify suspicious patterns before payments are made. Its the sort of stuff intelligence agencies do with electronic communications. Banks also have screening systems which alert them to suspicious uses of customers debit, credit, and ATM cards. The purpose of the $77 million dollar anti-fraud contract given to Northrup-Grumman (they make airplanes) was to discontinue the current practice of payand-chase, under which automatic payments are reviewed for fraud, waste, and abuse weeks after the money is spent. By the time the review is made and the chase begins the fraudsters can be sunning themselves on a beach in the Caribbean. Last year, under pay and chase, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) did recover $4.1 billion stolen or fraudulently received in prior years under Medicare and Medicaid, Thats not much when government spends $2.5 trillion annually for health care, and Medicare fraud alone is estimated to be $60 billion a year. Nonetheless, the president took a success bow at the press release. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 9, 2012 If you are a veteran or spouse of a veteran and you are in an assisted living community, or if you have a relative who is a veteran or spouse of a vet, Im going to tell you about a program I just found out about last week. Of course, a lot of you are smarter than I am, so you probably know about this already. But I didnt, and it cost my dad thousands of dollars over the years he was in assisted living before he died. The Veterans Administration, which I shall refer to as the VA, has a program under Disability Pension VA Benefits which pays so much per month to those who are qualified and are in an assisted living community (they like to be called communities, not facilities). You have to apply for it, and you cant apply until after you move in to an assisted living community. Once it is approved, according to one of my sources, it is retroactive to when you moved in and is paid monthly directly to the individual, not to the assisted living company. There are certain qualifications, such has having served in time of war (even if you didnt see combat) and receiving an honorable discharge. There are more, of course, as you would expect from a government agency. However, just the fact that some program is there is worth exploring. I found all this out because I started investigating last week for a family member who might have to go into assisted living. I went to three different communities, and each one told me about the program. One even gave me an information sheet, which has been passed on to the relative. What really annoys me is that in 1997, after my mother had died, we had to put my dad in assisted living because he had dementia, and we were afraid that harm might come to him if he were on his own. He was there for about seven years, in a place that has since been bought out by a different company. When we were investigating assisted living back 15 years ago, we knew very little about it. This time we knew what to ask, and the answers were very helpful. So if you think you might have someone who is eligible, ask the personnel, maybe the marketing director of administrator, to steer you in the right direction. Each of the people I talked to had someone they could refer me to for getting an application. Yes, youre dealing with the government, so we might sarcastically say Good luck. But lets face it. If theres a chance you can get some money out of the feds, by all means you should try.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Those who drive to work early in the morning will have to face a dismal fact beginning next week. Its going to be darker, later. This Sunday morning (or Saturday night), we go through the annual ritual of turning our clocks ahead. In the spring, that means we lose an hours sleep, and that the sun rises an hour later. Of course at the end of the day, we get a little more daylight, but that also means putting the little children and grandchildren to bed while its still daylight. Weve argued against changing back and forth for years, as have many Americans, but to no avail. Someone, somewhere, thinks this is a good idea. So we just have to live with it. One good thing about the twice-a-year time change: It serves as a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors. Make sure you keep yourself protected. You do have a working smoke detector, dont you? So dont forget, when you go to bed Saturday night, turn those clocks ahead, or else youll be an hour late for church on Sunday morning.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Once again, lets change the clocks Help for vets, spouses in assisted living Jim Flynn Columnist LETTER TO THE EDITOR Adventures of a federal anti-fraud squad Its not freeJust because you dont have to pay for it doesnt mean it is free. Someone has to pay the bill and no, the Insurance Company will not end up paying for it either. Every expense the company has is covered by the income received (premiums from those of us who pay our way), and if the expenses rise, so do our premiums. The federal and local governments raise our taxes. So much has been made of the question of Catholic hospitals having to pay birth control expenses, and that is ridiculous. I would guess 90 percent of us believe in birth control, but I have never thought it was the responsibility of someone else to pay for it. Pay for your own birth control! I question why the majority of women would believe government has the right to invade their privacy on such a matter. This is a family issue and should be treated as such. When we go down the road of free, where does it end? I get so tired of hearing, oh the government pays for it, be it health care, housing, food, or whatever. Our taxes should not be based on our governments being in the charity business. Its not my or your responsibility to pay for the above expenses unless we choose to do so. That is what charity is about, taking care of our loved ones when in need, through our local church, organizations set up for same, and our own families. We should always remember that the government doesnt have money, it is the taxpayers money. We raised and educated five children and it was a struggle. However, we never held our hand out or thought others should pay for their housing, schooling or health care. They were/are our responsibility and we were to take care of their needs. We have too many now searching for a government program to pay the way and that is not what individual responsibility is about. I am not talking about those who are truly in need, and there is a big difference. We have good programs in place for the truly needy, not for those who just use the system, holding their hand out. This has to stop! The above problems are magnified with the introduction of Obama Care. I sincerely request you thoroughly read it, if you do, there is no way you will approve what it does to our hospitals, doctors and to us as individuals. It is designed to destroy our health system through regulation, it is about more government power and it will take away our freedom more than anyone can imagine. Read it!!! Wa y ne R ack ley Ocala Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY CAPT. JIM BURTON Marion County Sheriffs OfficeI have noticed an old scam that is starting again. Recently some of our residents have fallen victim to a scam involving a supposed family member who is in trouble with the police or illegal gambling debts or some other issue. The victim receives a call from someone posing as a family member who needs money wired to get them out of a problem. The caller uses open ended questions or statements such as, Hey grandma, this is your favorite grandson, eliciting your response to call them byname. The victim, without verifying the story, rushes down to wire money to the family member in need, later to realize the person the victim thought they were helping is fine, safe and sound at home, after the victim calls to check on them, and they were never in any trouble. Please, if you get a call like this, call the family of the alleged family member or call the person yourself on their number that you already have, not the number provided by the caller, and verify the need is legitimate. This scam, as many similar scams to remove you from your money, relies upon your kneejerk reaction instead of taking a few minutes to verify the story before losing several thousands of dollars. If you need any assistance concerning this scam or similar scams, please contact us at the Marion County Sheriffs Office.Capt.

If you didnt sign up for Medicare Part B medical insurance when you first became eligible for Medicare, you now have an opportunity to apply but time is running out. The deadline for applying during the general enrollment period is March 31. If you miss the deadline, you may have to wait until 2013 to apply. Medicare Part B covers some medical expenses not covered by Medicare Part A (hospital insurance), such as doctors fees, outpatient hospital visits, and other medical supplies and services. When you first become eligible for hospital insurance (Part A), you have a seven-month period in which to sign up for medical insurance (Part B). After that, you may have to pay a higher premium unless you were covered The Oak Run Veterans Association will meet on Wednesday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Orchid Club.

Everyone enjoyed the evening of musical entertainment by West Port High Schools Jazz Combo, New Orleans style, and fine food prepared and served by the entertainment committee. The members of the committee also decorated the hall in the Mardis Gras motif. Each table displayed a variety of colorful beads and floral arrangements. The joyous atmosphere of food and music resembled a typical New Orleans street party. Many of the residents were dressed in costumes of masks, beads, and headdresses, showing the funfilled spirit of this annual event at Pine Run.

You are given another opportunity to enroll in Part B during the general enrollment period, from January 1 to March 31 of each year.

There are special situations in which you can apply for Medicare Part B outside the general enrollment period.

The annual Clean Air Bike Ride on the Withlacoochee State Trail to benefit the Key Training Center will take place on Saturday, March 19. Registration is $25 for adults; children 12 and under are $12, which includes a continental breakfast for all entrants, lunch served at the Inverness Trailhead from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and an event t-shirt. There is no mass start allowing participants to commence their 14, 28, 48 or 100 mile treks from 7-9 p.m. from the Inverness Trailhead, 315 on N. Apopka Ave. Registrations may be made online or registration forms can be downloaded and checks mailed prior to the event, payable to Citrus County Roadrunners, PO Box 94, Inverness 34451-0094. Registrations are also accepted the day of the event with packet pick up from 7-9 a.m. The 39 Steps, a suspenseful-romanticcomedy, based on the 1935 movie by Alfred Hitchcock, is playing in the Insomniac Theater through March 18. Five actors play over 100 characters in this Tony-winner that kept Broadway rollicking for the past three years. It is part juicy spy novel, part Monty Python, and it preserves the brilliance originally created by the master of suspense. Go on the adventure with our suave hero Richard Hannay who learns from a beautiful spy about a plot of international espionage. The woman is killed in Hannays flat and he suddenly finds himself caught up in a race from London to Scotland in hopes of stopping military secrets from being smuggled out of the country. As he searches for the secret of The 39 Steps he is doggedly pursued by the police who believe he is a murderer. The play remains very close to the film, particularly in terms of its frenetic timing. But putting the movie a farce-like whirlwind adventure on stage requires ingenious theatrical devises to instantly go from a chase scene on a train, to a plane crash, transform into a luxurious Scottish manor, then to a London flat, or suddenly become The London Palladium. Also occurring at breakneck speed are nearly one-hundred costume changes, which often happen right before the audience in the blink of an eye. Performances run Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through March 18 at The Insomniac Theater, 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Ocala, on the Square. General seating is only $10. For more information or ticket reservations and purchases call the hotline at 352-897-0477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com.

But be careful that what you see is what you want. Appearances can often be deceiving.

A Libra creates excitement. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Expect to happily plunge right into a hectic social whirl starting at weeks end.

March madness is coming. College mens basketball playoffs involving 68 teams will play in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion. Scheduled to begin on March 13, it will conclude with the championship game on April 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley we hope to score a few points with punny stuff that didnt hit the basket.Coaching psychosisThe professor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test. He asked, How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next? A student raised his hand and answered, A basketball coach?Barnyard rulesIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls.Cell timeAfter a basketball game, the coach found a cell phone on the gym floor. He picked it up and handed it to one of the referees, saying, Heres your phone. What makes you think its mine? the referee asked. Easy, the coach replied. It says you missed 13 calls.Great losses?Basketball team pictures from the past 20 years hang on the walls in the colleges sports center. A player in the center of the front row in each picture holds a basketball identifying the year -93, -94, -95, etc. One day a freshman looking curiously at the photos said, Isnt it strange how the teams always lost by one point?Foul shotsHow can they call it March Madness, yet never mention anyone in the Democrat party, anyone in the Republican party, anyone in Hollywood, or Lady Gaga? Two Mexicans playing basketball is called Juan on Juan. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance. The basketball team at the cleaners academy went into a full court press. At the college basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. Fitting the basketball star with size 18 shoes was no small feat. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. Basketball nets in Hawaii are known as hulahoops. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, If you can pass through this door without bending, dont. Old basketball players never die; they just go on dribbling.No KiddingThe captain of a team said to the ref, My coach wants to know if there is a penalty for thinking. The ref said, No. The captain said, Well my coach thinks youre making horribly bad calls.NBA wonderMeanwhile, in the NBA a new sports sensation, New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin, came off the bench and helped win six games including a last-second shot to defeat the Toronto Raptors. Where else but in America can you drink a German beer and watch a Taiwanese basketball player on your Chinese TV beat a team from Canada? Jeremy Lin jerseys are the best NBA seller right now. How cool is this? And nice for the people making the jerseys to see a name they might actually recognize.Limping alongThe weather today was fantastic. We went outside and played basketball. Just as we were about out of time, I got the ball to take the winning shot, but I missed. One of my teammates demanded to know why I had missed such an easy shot. I sprained my ankle, I told him. Thats a lame excuse, he replied.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BEFORE THE POISON By Peter RobinsonHeres a heads up for Daphne du Maurier fans. Author Peter Robinson abandons his Inspector Banks series to bring us a romantic suspense novel set in an isolated, sprawling 18th century mansion where 60 years earlier a murder was committed. The storys replete with sighing winds, creaking floorboards, a ghost appearing in a bedroom mirror, and a portrait of the beautiful former mistress of the country manor. Chris Lowndes, a successful Hollywood musician who scored many Oscar-winning films, buys a mansion sight unseen located in the seclusion of Yorkshire Dales. Born in England he had always planned to move back with his beloved wife Laura. But she died and Lowndes, now somewhat elderly, must return alone. He knows nothing about the property hes bought except for a few photographs. But something about it holds a strange attraction for him: I had a curious sensation that the shy, halfhidden house was waiting for me, that it had been waiting for some time, he says. When he meets his attractive Realtor Heather, he senses that shes withholding the history of the mansion. After much coaxing she confesses that in 1953 the owner, Dr. Ernest Fox, was poisoned by his much younger wife Grace who was found guilty of the crime and hanged. With time on his hands and his grief still raw, Chris welcomes a distraction and finds it in trying to unravel the history of the Foxes. He begins frequenting local pubs where he can find patrons old enough to remember the trial. From them he learns that Grace had a lover much younger than herself and that the affair provided the prosecution with a motive for murder. He also learns that her attorney presented an anemic defense and that Grace seemed resigned to her fate throughout the trial. When he discovers Graces wartime journals written when she was a battlefield nurse during World War II, his interest morphs into obsession. The journals reveal a brave, heroic young woman so compassionate toward her patients that she could not possibly have taken a life. To that end, he sets out to prove her innocence, an objective that takes him to Paris and Cape Town. This is a dark and twisty novel that will thwart your attempt to solve the mystery at every turn. A fine read. Recommended. Dark, twisty novel is recommended BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Fundraising barbecue for Wagoner A fundraising barbecue for School Superintendent candidate Wally Wagoner will take place on Saturday, April 28, at Abshier Blueberry Farm, 3960 S.E. 115th St., Belleview, from 4 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $50.

He further stated, As county commissioner, I will work to encourage job growth here in Marion County by working to remove governmental road blocks such as heavy taxation and unnecessary regulation. It is not the government that best creates jobs it is the private sector. In addition, we need to support the services here in Marion County that help make this the best place in the world to live. We need to support our hospitals, fire and rescue workers, police and sheriff, and county staff. Moore has been in the finance field for the past 14 years. He has a Bachelors Degree in Business along with a Master of Divinity from Luther Rice University. He is also scheduled to complete a Masters Degree in Leadership from Luther Rice University in May of this year. He and his wife Loida have a one son who attends a local, public elementary school in Marion County. He and his family are active members of Trinity Baptist Church. MOORECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ment district, then the taxpayers gave it to them. Theyll just be giving you your money back. McClain vigorously defended the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Im afraid the citizens are in trouble. In the revolution we were an ocean away from the tyrant, and he added that it was not that way in America. A lot of people dont understand why its so important. McClain said it was important to have a congressman from Marion County for the majority of local citizens. He pointed out that a legislator out of Hernando County would more than likely be our sitting congressman. If we had a strong congressman from Marion County, the difference that it would make for you is tremendous. We have to have a voice in Washington. We have to have people who will go fight for us. The next debate is scheduled for March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Tea Party Solutions meeting at Berean Baptist Church. It will feature candidates for District 5, the seat being vacated by Charlie Stone.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 BY MELANIE VITTITOW Special to the CitizenFirst, we would like to thank everyone who called about Bud, who did find a very good home. Some of the people asked to be placed on our waiting list so they can be called when we get another dog for adoption. What we really need are people who will foster a dog or cat until we can find him a forever home. We do not have a shelter, so fosters are vital to our operation. Sometimes the animal can be kept at their current home until a new owner is found, but often, we need to take one immediately and cant do that if we have no one to take it. If you enjoy pets, but dont want the permanent responsibility of pet ownership, fostering is perfect for you. Please call 352-362-0985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. While we are on the subject of fostering, we still have two cats to find homes for. They have been shown here before but Im including another picture. Kitten (the Multi) is 3 and Pumpkin (the black one) is 7. They have a nice large cat room to stay in but they are both loving cats and miss having someone to cuddle with. If you are considering a cat for a pet and dont want to cope with the energy of a kitten, these girls may be just right. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to schedule a meeting. And while we are discussing cats, let me share some advice I read from the Humane Society. Besides cuddling and lying in the sun, cats need to play. Indoor cats, especially, get bored with nothing to do. They can invent their own games if you have provided an assortment of cat toys, but its even better if you share the fun. Here are a few Dos and Donts of cat play. Do let the cat capture the prey many times during the play session. Especially with those bird toys, let the bird land so it can be stalked. The cat will get frustrated and just quit if it cant succeed occasionally. Dont jerk the toy out of the cats mouth or paws. It may cause injury Bud finds a very good home Kitten and Pumpkin.

BY JIM CLARK EditorIt was supposed to be a District 3 County Commission candidate debate, but since one of two hopefuls didnt attend, Stan McClain had to answer all the questions himself. The Tea Party Solutions meeting Monday night featured McClain, the Republican incumbent who is being opposed by Democrat Patricia Reed, who was invited but did not attend. In his opening remarks, McClain commented, The oppression from the top is unbelievable. It was become painful to see how many rules and regulations are pushed down to us. McClain noted that government at the local level is very important, and we have to continue to say no. With the countys large population, McClain noted, I probably face more voters (than state representatives). He drew a reaction from the crowd when he said he and his wife had 11 children and four grandchildren. He praised earlier commissions for their fiscal responsibility, and said, Were reaping some of the benefits now. As a result, he said, he didnt have a sky is falling mentality. He said he stands on his record, a conservative record, and added, Weve taken a view that our government needs to be smaller. He said that he continues to look for ways for the private sector to take over some responsibilities. Asked about impact fees and the countys moratorium, he said that eliminating them was fine with me. McClain said he didnt know if the decision has spurred growth, and as for the loss of funds, noted the government didnt take money out of someones pocket. Asked about the springs protection ordinance, he noted, The more I looked at it, the more I realized it was not the right thing to do for Marion County. I do see the encroachment of government. He was questioned about the proposed tech development at Interstate 75 and County Road 318 north of Ocala, and defended the property owner, saying that he was a strong proponent for property rights and that someone had made an investment in the property. He said he could support the development if it could pay for itself. Speaking about the Munroe Regional Medical Center trustees, he indicated he felt the hospital needed to either be sold or leased, and said there were seven proposals on the table. As far as a hospital tax, he said that the people elected me to represent you, so you wont be bombarded by proposals to vote on. But he said there was another side. Sometimes I get a little ticked off. Just send it to a referendum and let the people vote it down, then were done with it. We dont need more taxes in Marion County.

According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the incident started as the bus was westbound on State Road 200 near 103rd Street Road. The female juvenile, age 13, attacked other students, and bit the bus driver after he stopped the bus and he and an aide tried to subdue the student. One student was punched in the face, another in the mouth. The girl said she punched one boy because he called her gay and another because he said something about her mother. She also resisted arrest by battling the deputy. After she was placed in the patrol car, she kicked the door windows several time. She was taken to the county jail, where she was accused of battery on a school official, simple battery, disruption of a school function and resisting without violence. It was the second school bus attack in recent weeks. Earlier, a Liberty Middle School girl was attacked by a gang of girls on a school bus. That case is proceeding through the court system.

The Florida House of Representatives has passed CS/CS/HB 681 Interlock Ignition Devices Ordered for Probation for DUI sponsored by Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala). This bill unanimously passed all three committees of reference on its way to the Session floor. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, there were 10,228 alcohol-impaired traffic fatalities in 2010 which represents 31 percentof all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2000 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates alcohol-related crashes in the United States cost the public $114.3 billion. The bill provides additional accountability for DUI offenders by ordering the installation of an interlock ignition device for at least three continuous months after their first offense, six continuous months after their second offense within five years, and 12 continuous months after their third offense within 10 years on all vehicles that are individually or jointly leased or owned and routinely operated by the defendant. We dont need more people in jail, we need them to stop drinking and driving, said Baxley.

In his announcement, Moore described his campaign for office and his vision to see a return to government that is "of, by, and for 'We the People." "I am one of you. One of 'We the People," said Moore. "I believe that my life experiences, professional expertise, abilities, skills, consistent and principled philosophy, and understanding of the issues uniquely qualify me to be an authentic representative of all the people of Marion County and positions me as the best candidate for the Marion County Commission.

BY JIM CLARK Editor It was supposed to be a District 3 County Commission candidate debate, but since one of two hopefuls didnt attend, Stan McClain had to answer all the questions himself. The Tea Party Solutions meeting Monday night featured McClain, the Republican incumbent who is being opposed by Democrat Patricia Reed, who was invited but did not attend. In his opening remarks, McClain commented, The oppression from the top is unbelievable. It was become painful to see how many rules and regulations are pushed down to us. McClain noted that government at the local level is very important, and we have to continue to say no. With the countys large population, McClain noted, I probably face more voters (than state representatives). He drew a reaction from the crowd when he said he and his wife had 11 children and four grandchildren. He praised earlier commissions for their fiscal responsibility, and said, Were reaping some of the benefits now. As a result, he said, he didnt have a sky is falling mentality. He said he stands on his record, a conservative record, and added, Weve taken a view that our government needs to be smaller. He said that he continues to look for ways for the private sector to take over some responsibilities. Asked about impact fees and the countys moratorium, he said that eliminating them was fine with me. McClain said he didnt know if the decision has spurred growth, and as for the loss of funds, noted the government didnt take money out of someones pocket.

The winning teams were: Dougherty/Collins, Albright/Cunningham, Salberg/Connelly, Kollar/Terry, Gray/Start, Szabo/Simnowitz, ONeill/Valois, Gildea/Madill, and Aubrey/Paller. After chairman Terry handed out the awards lunch was served by the Royal Oaks Dining staff. As usual, it was outstanding, and a fitting way to end the tournament. Thanks to John Terry for coordinating the event, which was particularly difficult due to the format. One final note. The sign up sheet is posted for the St. Patricks Day tournament on Friday, March 16. Look forward to seeing all of you then. Send all items for this column to Carol Ann Wheeler at democratcarol@deccacable.com no later than the afternoon of the Friday before publication. Note there are no hyphens in the address. If you wish to call her, the number is in the Oak Run directory. You may send pictures as jpg attachments. Typed copy or hard copy photos can be placed in Carols cubby across the street from her house but should be submitted earlier as they take longer to process. The names of the people in all photos must be included. OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 BY MELANIE VITTITOW Special to the Citizen First, we would like to thank everyone who called about Bud, who did find a very good home. Some of the people asked to be placed on our waiting list so they can be called when we get another dog for adoption. What we really need are people who will foster a dog or cat until we can find him a forever home. We do not have a shelter, so fosters are vital to our operation. Sometimes the animal can be kept at their current home until a new owner is found, but often, we need to take one immediately and cant do that if we have no one to take it. If you enjoy pets, but dont want the permanent responsibility of pet ownership, fostering is perfect for you. Please call 352-362-0985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. While we are on the subject of fostering, we still have two cats to find homes for. They have been shown here before but Im including another picture. Kitten (the Multi) is 3 and Pumpkin (the black one) is 7. They have a nice large cat room to stay in but they are both loving cats and miss having someone to cuddle with. If you are considering a cat for a pet and dont want to cope with the energy of a kitten, these girls may be just right. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to schedule a meeting. And while we are discussing cats, let me share some advice I read from the Humane Society. Besides cuddling and lying in the sun, cats need to play. Indoor cats, especially, get bored with nothing to do. They can invent their own games if you have provided an assortment of cat toys, but its even better if you share the fun. Here are a few Dos and Donts of cat play. Do let the cat capture the prey many times during the play session. Especially with those bird toys, let the bird land so it can be stalked. The cat will get frustrated and just quit if it cant succeed occasionally. Dont jerk the toy out of the cats mouth or paws. It may cause injury Bud finds a very good home Kitten and Pumpkin.

He further stated, As county commissioner, I will work to encourage job growth here in Marion County by working to remove governmental road blocks such as heavy taxation and unnecessary regulation. It is not the government that best creates jobs it is the private sector. In addition, we need to support the services here in Marion County that help make this the best place in the world to live. We need to support our hospitals, fire and rescue workers, police and sheriff, and county staff. Moore has been in the finance field for the past 14 years.

He is also scheduled to complete a Masters Degree in Leadership from Luther Rice University in May of this year. He and his wife Loida have a one son who attends a local, public elementary school in Marion County. He and his family are active members of Trinity Baptist Church. MOORE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ment district, then the taxpayers gave it to them. Theyll just be giving you your money back. McClain vigorously defended the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Im afraid the citizens are in trouble. In the revolution we were an ocean away from the tyrant, and he added that it was not that way in America. A lot of people dont understand why its so important. McClain said it was important to have a congressman from Marion County for the majority of local citizens. He pointed out that a legislator out of Hernando County would more than likely be our sitting congressman. If we had a strong congressman from Marion County, the difference that it would make for you is tremendous. We have to have a voice in Washington. We have to have people who will go fight for us. The next debate is scheduled for March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Tea Party Solutions meeting at Berean Baptist Church. It will feature candidates for District 5, the seat being vacated by Charlie Stone.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BEFORE THE POISON By Peter RobinsonH eres a heads up for Daphne du Maurier fans. Author Peter Robinson abandons his Inspector Banks series to bring us a romantic suspense novel set in an isolated, sprawling 18th century mansion where 60 years earlier a murder was committed. The storys replete with sighing winds, creaking floorboards, a ghost appearing in a bedroom mirror, and a portrait of the beautiful former mistress of the country manor. Chris Lowndes, a successful Hollywood musician who scored many Oscar-winning films, buys a mansion sight unseen located in the seclusion of Yorkshire Dales. Born in England he had always planned to move back with his beloved wife Laura. But she died and Lowndes, now somewhat elderly, must return alone. He knows nothing about the property hes bought except for a few photographs. But something about it holds a strange attraction for him: I had a curious sensation that the shy, halfhidden house was waiting for me, that it had been waiting for some time, he says. When he meets his attractive Realtor Heather, he senses that shes withholding the history of the mansion. After much coaxing she confesses that in 1953 the owner, Dr. Ernest Fox, was poisoned by his much younger wife Grace who was found guilty of the crime and hanged. With time on his hands and his grief still raw, Chris welcomes a distraction and finds it in trying to unravel the history of the Foxes. He begins frequenting local pubs where he can find patrons old enough to remember the trial. From them he learns that Grace had a lover much younger than herself and that the affair provided the prosecution with a motive for murder. He also learns that her attorney presented an anemic defense and that Grace seemed resigned to her fate throughout the trial. When he discovers Graces wartime journals written when she was a battlefield nurse during World War II, his interest morphs into obsession. The journals reveal a brave, heroic young woman so compassionate toward her patients that she could not possibly have taken a life. To that end, he sets out to prove her innocence, an objective that takes him to Paris and Cape Town. This is a dark and twisty novel that will thwart your attempt to solve the mystery at every turn. A fine read. Recommended. Dark, twisty novel is recommended B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Fundraising barbecue for Wagoner A fundraising barbecue for School Superintendent candidate Wally Wagoner will take place on Saturday, April 28, at Abshier Blueberry Farm, 3960 S.E. 115th St., Belleview, from 4 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $50.

Havenlea Dog Training Centre announced that it will be offering training in agility and flyball beginning March 15. Agility is a timed obstacle course for dogs which includes a dog walk, A-frame, seesaw, weave poles, tunnels and jumps. The dogs handler directs him through the course. Flyball is a fast-paced relay race. The dog must jump four hurdles, hit a box (which launches a ball), then catch and retrieve the ball back over the jumps where his teammate waits. Both of these exciting dog sports may be played for competition, or just for fun. Havenlea Dog Training Centre also offers the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program, basic obedience and manners training, behavior modification, AKC Canine Good Citizen training and Testing, and Competition Obedience-Rally training. Group classes, private instruction, and board and train are available. For more information, please visit www.havenleadogtraining.com. or contact Georgia A.

M arch madness is coming. College mens basketball playoffs involving 68 teams will play in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion. Scheduled to begin on March 13, it will conclude with the championship game on April 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley we hope to score a few points with punny stuff that didnt hit the basket. Coaching psychosisThe professor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test. He asked, How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next? A student raised his hand and answered, A basketball coach? Barnyard rulesIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls. Cell time After a basketball game, the coach found a cell phone on the gym floor. He picked it up and handed it to one of the referees, saying, Heres your phone. What makes you think its mine? the referee asked. Easy, the coach replied. It says you missed 13 calls. Great losses? Basketball team pictures from the past 20 years hang on the walls in the colleges sports center. A player in the center of the front row in each picture holds a basketball identifying the year -93, -94, -95, etc. One day a freshman looking curiously at the photos said, Isnt it strange how the teams always lost by one point? Foul shots How can they call it March Madness, yet never mention anyone in the Democrat party, anyone in the Republican party, anyone in Hollywood, or Lady Gaga? Two Mexicans playing basketball is called Juan on Juan. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance. The basketball team at the cleaners academy went into a full court press. At the college basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. Fitting the basketball star with size 18 shoes was no small feat. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. Basketball nets in Hawaii are known as hulahoops. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, If you can pass through this door without bending, dont. Old basketball players never die; they just go on dribbling. No KiddingThe captain of a team said to the ref, My coach wants to know if there is a penalty for thinking. The ref said, No. The captain said, Well my coach thinks youre making horribly bad calls. NBA wonderMeanwhile, in the NBA a new sports sensation, New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin, came off the bench and helped win six games including a last-second shot to defeat the Toronto Raptors. Where else but in America can you drink a German beer and watch a Taiwanese basketball player on your Chinese TV beat a team from Canada? Jeremy Lin jerseys are the best NBA seller right now. How cool is this? And nice for the people making the jerseys to see a name they might actually recognize. Limping along The weather today was fantastic. We went outside and played basketball. Just as we were about out of time, I got the ball to take the winning shot, but I missed. One of my teammates demanded to know why I had missed such an easy shot. I sprained my ankle, I told him. Thats a lame excuse, he replied. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

The annual Clean Air Bike Ride on the Withlacoochee State Trail to benefit the Key Training Center will take place on Saturday, March 19. Registration is $25 for adults; children 12 and under are $12, which includes a continental breakfast for all entrants, lunch served at the Inverness Trailhead from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and an event t-shirt. There is no mass start allowing participants to commence their 14, 28, 48 or 100 mile treks from 7-9 p.m. from the Inverness Trailhead, 315 on N. Apopka Ave. Registrations may be made online or registration forms can be downloaded and checks mailed prior to the event, payable to Citrus County Roadrunners, PO Box 94, Inverness 34451-0094. Registrations are also accepted the day of the event with packet pick up from 7-9 a.m. The 39 Steps, a suspenseful-romanticcomedy, based on the 1935 movie by Alfred Hitchcock, is playing in the Insomniac Theater through March 18. Five actors play over 100 characters in this Tony-winner that kept Broadway rollicking for the past three years. It is part juicy spy novel, part Monty Python, and it preserves the brilliance originally created by the master of suspense. Go on the adventure with our suave hero Richard Hannay who learns from a beautiful spy about a plot of international espionage. The woman is killed in Hannays flat and he suddenly finds himself caught up in a race from London to Scotland in hopes of stopping military secrets from being smuggled out of the country. As he searches for the secret of The 39 Steps he is doggedly pursued by the police who believe he is a murderer. The play remains very close to the film, particularly in terms of its frenetic timing. But putting the movie a farce-like whirlwind adventure on stage requires ingenious theatrical devises to instantly go from a chase scene on a train, to a plane crash, transform into a luxurious Scottish manor, then to a London flat, or suddenly become The London Palladium. Also occurring at breakneck speed are nearly one-hundred costume changes, which often happen right before the audience in the blink of an eye. Performances run Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through March 18 at The Insomniac Theater, 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Ocala, on the Square. General seating is only $10. For more information or ticket reservations and purchases call the hotline at 352-897-0477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com.

Give it a chance to prove itself one way or another. The results could surprise both supporters and detractors. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about an upcoming venture causes you to make some last-minute adjustments in your plans. But the extra work will pay off, as you come to learn more about the potential benefits opening up. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A more positive aspect grows out of your determination to reach your immediate goals. Continue to keep your focus sharp and on target by steering clear of petty quarrels and other pesky problems. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) By acting as a voice of reason, you can avoid adding to an already turbulent situation. You might have to shout over the tumult, but your words ultimately will be heard and heeded. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The possibility of a new acquisition always makes those Leonine eyes light up. But be careful that what you see is what you want. Appearances can often be deceiving. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) No matter how much you might feel that youre in the right, resist saying anything that could reignite a still unresolved situation. Let the matter drop, and move on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Help with a personal problem comes from an unexpected source. You also find workplace pressures easing. Use this period of calm to restore your spent energies. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to share the credit for that project youre working on. But therell be enough credit to go around, and your efforts will be recognized and rewarded. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Details need to be dealt with before you can move on to another area. Make sure you dont leave any loose ends that could later cause everything to unravel. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) News about a change in the workplace carries with it a challenge you could find difficult to resist. Check it out. It could be what youve been waiting for. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Allowing your artistic nature full expression will help restore your spirits and will put you in the mood to take on that new career challenge. A Libra creates excitement. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Expect to happily plunge right into a hectic social whirl starting at weeks end. Your aspects favor new friendships as well as the strengthening of old relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: Like St. Patrick (who was also born this week), your spiritual strength is an inspiration to others. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Everyone enjoyed the evening of musical entertainment by West Port High Schools Jazz Combo, New Orleans style, and fine food prepared and served by the entertainment committee. The members of the committee also decorated the hall in the Mardis Gras motif. Each table displayed a variety of colorful beads and floral arrangements. The joyous atmosphere of food and music resembled a typical New Orleans street party. Many of the residents were dressed in costumes of masks, beads, and headdresses, showing the funfilled spirit of this annual event at Pine Run.

Early performance reports however are subject to lengthy questioning by Congress as to why the new program isnt accomplishing more and faster. One such sequence accompanied the $77 million Medicare fraud computer system which was launched last summer. In its first six months the system captured one suspicious payment and saved $7,591. The Senate Committee on Federal Financial Management said it was disappointed. We wonder whether the Senate is aware of how disappointed taxpayers are in their financial management? Medicare says assessment of the new anti-fraud program is too soon and unfair. They say taking their other activities into account, the potential savings in the first six months could easily exceed $20 million. The new computer system is designed to scan and analyze large numbers of claims and identify suspicious patterns before payments are made. Its the sort of stuff intelligence agencies do with electronic communications. Banks also have screening systems which alert them to suspicious uses of customers debit, credit, and ATM cards. The purpose of the $77 million dollar anti-fraud contract given to Northrup-Grumman (they make airplanes) was to discontinue the current practice of payand-chase, under which automatic payments are reviewed for fraud, waste, and abuse weeks after the money is spent. By the time the review is made and the chase begins the fraudsters can be sunning themselves on a beach in the Caribbean. Last year, under pay and chase, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) did recover $4.1 billion stolen or fraudulently received in prior years under Medicare and Medicaid, Thats not much when government spends $2.5 trillion annually for health care, and Medicare fraud alone is estimated to be $60 billion a year. Nonetheless, the president took a success bow at the press release. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 I f you are a veteran or spouse of a veteran and you are in an assisted living community, or if you have a relative who is a veteran or spouse of a vet, Im going to tell you about a program I just found out about last week. Of course, a lot of you are smarter than I am, so you probably know about this already. But I didnt, and it cost my dad thousands of dollars over the years he was in assisted living before he died. The Veterans Administration, which I shall refer to as the VA, has a program under Disability Pension VA Benefits which pays so much per month to those who are qualified and are in an assisted living community (they like to be called communities, not facilities). You have to apply for it, and you cant apply until after you move in to an assisted living community. Once it is approved, according to one of my sources, it is retroactive to when you moved in and is paid monthly directly to the individual, not to the assisted living company. There are certain qualifications, such has having served in time of war (even if you didnt see combat) and receiving an honorable discharge. There are more, of course, as you would expect from a government agency. However, just the fact that some program is there is worth exploring. I found all this out because I started investigating last week for a family member who might have to go into assisted living. I went to three different communities, and each one told me about the program. One even gave me an information sheet, which has been passed on to the relative. What really annoys me is that in 1997, after my mother had died, we had to put my dad in assisted living because he had dementia, and we were afraid that harm might come to him if he were on his own. He was there for about seven years, in a place that has since been bought out by a different company. When we were investigating assisted living back 15 years ago, we knew very little about it. This time we knew what to ask, and the answers were very helpful. So if you think you might have someone who is eligible, ask the personnel, maybe the marketing director of administrator, to steer you in the right direction. Each of the people I talked to had someone they could refer me to for getting an application. Yes, youre dealing with the government, so we might sarcastically say Good luck. But lets face it. If theres a chance you can get some money out of the feds, by all means you should try.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T hose who drive to work early in the morning will have to face a dismal fact beginning next week. Its going to be darker, later. This Sunday morning (or Saturday night), we go through the annual ritual of turning our clocks ahead. In the spring, that means we lose an hours sleep, and that the sun rises an hour later. Of course at the end of the day, we get a little more daylight, but that also means putting the little children and grandchildren to bed while its still daylight. Weve argued against changing back and forth for years, as have many Americans, but to no avail. Someone, somewhere, thinks this is a good idea. So we just have to live with it. One good thing about the twice-a-year time change: It serves as a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors. Make sure you keep yourself protected. You do have a working smoke detector, dont you? So dont forget, when you go to bed Saturday night, turn those clocks ahead, or else youll be an hour late for church on Sunday morning. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Once again, lets change the clocks Help for vets, spouses in assisted living Jim Flynn Columnist LETTER TO THE EDITOR Adventures of a federal anti-fraud squad Its not freeJust because you dont have to pay for it doesnt mean it is free. Someone has to pay the bill and no, the Insurance Company will not end up paying for it either. Every expense the company has is covered by the income received (premiums from those of us who pay our way), and if the expenses rise, so do our premiums. The federal and local governments raise our taxes. So much has been made of the question of Catholic hospitals having to pay birth control expenses, and that is ridiculous. I would guess 90 percent of us believe in birth control, but I have never thought it was the responsibility of someone else to pay for it. Pay for your own birth control! I question why the majority of women would believe government has the right to invade their privacy on such a matter. This is a family issue and should be treated as such. When we go down the road of free, where does it end? I get so tired of hearing, oh the government pays for it, be it health care, housing, food, or whatever. Our taxes should not be based on our governments being in the charity business. Its not my or your responsibility to pay for the above expenses unless we choose to do so. That is what charity is about, taking care of our loved ones when in need, through our local church, organizations set up for same, and our own families. We should always remember that the government doesnt have money, it is the taxpayers money. We raised and educated five children and it was a struggle. However, we never held our hand out or thought others should pay for their housing, schooling or health care. They were/are our responsibility and we were to take care of their needs. We have too many now searching for a government program to pay the way and that is not what individual responsibility is about. I am not talking about those who are truly in need, and there is a big difference. We have good programs in place for the truly needy, not for those who just use the system, holding their hand out. This has to stop! The above problems are magnified with the introduction of Obama Care. I sincerely request you thoroughly read it, if you do, there is no way you will approve what it does to our hospitals, doctors and to us as individuals. It is designed to destroy our health system through regulation, it is about more government power and it will take away our freedom more than anyone can imagine. Read it!!! Wa y ne R ac k le y Ocala Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY CAPT. JIM BURTON Marion County Sheriffs OfficeI have noticed an old scam that is starting again. Recently some of our residents have fallen victim to a scam involving a supposed family member who is in trouble with the police or illegal gambling debts or some other issue. The victim receives a call from someone posing as a family member who needs money wired to get them out of a problem. The caller uses open ended questions or statements such as, Hey grandma, this is your favorite grandson, eliciting your response to call them byname. The victim, without verifying the story, rushes down to wire money to the family member in need, later to realize the person the victim thought they were helping is fine, safe and sound at home, after the victim calls to check on them, and they were never in any trouble. Please, if you get a call like this, call the family of the alleged family member or call the person yourself on their number that you already have, not the number provided by the caller, and verify the need is legitimate. This scam, as many similar scams to remove you from your money, relies upon your kneejerk reaction instead of taking a few minutes to verify the story before losing several thousands of dollars. If you need any assistance concerning this scam or similar scams, please contact us at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Capt.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com An unspoken problem in identifying and delaying suspicious payment requests has been the Congressional directive to DHHS to make payments promptly, meaning 15 to 30 days. Now that DHHS has its new anti-fraud program, Congress expects both hurry-up payments and hurry-up recoveries. Maybe the Senate should consider passing a hurry-up federal budget, after three years without one. Another restraint on aggressive attention to fraud, waste, and abuse is an understandable aversion of federal workers to being seen as whistleblowers, a function which is not included in their job descriptions. In the case of the new fraud computer system were inclined to give DHHS the benefit of time and concede that Congress is premature in its assessment that they must have left out some zeroes. The deputy director of the DHHS anti-fraud program, a former federal prosecutor, says theyve turned up 2500 leads and identified 600 suspicious cases. Major investigations arent built in a day, a week, or even six months. Given a reasonable amount of time, there just might be a pot of gold at the end of this DHHS rainbow. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Birth controlAs for the Sandra Fouke birth control contraception issue a few points. To begin with, seeing her portrayed as a college student doesn't wash. She's no 18-year-old coed but an older-than-most law student of 30 or 31. Also she doesn't come across as too swift with her very excessive and comical contraception cost. This has nothing to do with health issues but the public paying for sex in our handout society. Today, we have people that knock success (being rich), reward mediocrity and failure with a president who apologies for our country to anyone over anything. Sad but true and let's hope things start changing in November. B ob Cronin Oak Run LETTER TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMN BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the Citizen Reactions to my Heart Felt Thanks article that appeared in recent past issues of the Messenger and the Citizen have been overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Thank you to all who have contacted me by phone or email. If, by some chance, I have not contacted you within a couple of weeks, please contact me again. I certainly am not above misplacing a name or phone number with all that has been going on at our home. Rest assured that there will be a follow up article in which I will reference the calls or emails from those of you who have said that my husbands experience spoke to you and your loved ones who have had similar experiences. This has prompted many of you to want to share your stories with others as well. I find that amazingly inspiring. My husband, Phil, has experienced some temporary setbacks. These have proved to be more like bumps in that road to recovery often heard about after major surgery for a serious condition. Many of you will recognize a similar pattern with your personal story as Phil has recently made two trips to the cardiologists office, had a short stint back in the hospital, made a visit to the lab for more blood work, and also paid a visit to the primary care physician (not necessarily in that order). There have been some additional concerns with new medications and some disconcerting bruising from those IV sites when a patient is prescribed Coumadin, Plavix, Heparin, aspirin, Prednisone or other such meds. I will be calling upon many of you who have magnificent stories of hope and recovery to share with others. Your insights into the excellent care provided by many of our local physicians and caregivers are heart-warming. So, too, are the stories that perhaps began in some other part of the country before you migrated to Florida. There has been such a response that I feel sure that this may well become a series of stories of hope and thanks that will be unfolding and perhaps may be told by a better writer than I am. Whoever writes Readers are truly wonderful and so appreciated these stories, the stories need to be told. The thing that really jumps out at me the primary home care giver is the stress and angst felt as we try to be so strong for our loved ones. We have to learn that same old lesson that we hear over and over. We cannot help others if we dont take care of ourselves. That often becomes a secondary issue that should be given more attention. Honestly, I must say that there are times when I feel my patience wearing so thin that I become ashamed or embarrassed because I am in such good health that I think that I should not let the situation be causing me to lose my cool. However, from having talked with others, this is not an uncommon occurrence. We are all human, and we have our limits. I am trying to remember that. Once again, thank you for giving me such encouragement by way of your calls, emails, and personal visits. I feel that when this kind of story is shared, each of us is empowered to do a better job than we might have without having heard that others went through overwhelming illnesses or have felt much the same as we feel. Please feel free to email me at pbgeissal@aol.com if you have criticism or comments. They will be appreciated. Priscilla Geissal is Fairfield Village writer for the West Marion Messenger.

I find it quite amusing that some of the brightest and richest people in our country do not seem to have a clue as to what they are doing. Most do not have the common sense that God gave to a caterpillar. As Abraham Lincoln used to say, common sense is not as common as it used to be. Amen, to that one. The financial experts are telling us that we need to buy gold or silver to safeguard our investments. I am way ahead of the game. Several years ago, I got a gold tooth. Fortunately, for me, I got it before the financial crisis in our country. I cannot tell you what a remarkable feeling it is to walk around with your fortune in your mouth. I hear about all of the investment schemes that are supposed to make me rich. I have a sneaking suspicion that the only people getting rich are those with the investment schemes. They want us to buy stocks and bonds and futures. I never heard of anything so silly in all my life. What would I do with stocks, bonds and futures, whatever in the world they are, in my portfolio. I have no idea what a portfolio is but I am certain it has something to do with these investment schemes. I just do not want anybody folioing around with my port, thank you very much, sir. If I got my facts right, and I looked it up in the dictionary, port has something to do with wine. Why would I want to put a bottle of port into my folio and pretend it is some kind of an investment? I really have to give it to these investment schemers. They really know how to pull the wool over our eyes. I want to go on record as saying that they are not pulling any wool over my eyes. Just leave my wool alone. If I want my wool pulled, it certainly will not be over my eyes, I will tell you that right here. This wool pulling sounds more like sheep fleecing to me, and I want nothing to do with it. For me I have discovered a way of safeguarding my wealth. My basic financial philosophy is simply spend less than I make. I know that is a revolutionary concept in todays world, but it has stood me in good stead for many a year. We live in a culture that has absolutely no spending control whatsoever. This culture does not know the relationship between saving money and spending money. For example. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came home the other day and in a very exuberant tone told me how much she saved at the grocery store. I saved $119.23 today at the grocery store. Isnt that terrific? Being the humble, demure sort of guy that I am, I did not ask her a question that was buzzing around my head at the time. The question was, how much did it cost me to save you that much money? Having a happy home is more important to me than exploring truth at its core. Especially in this area. My financial strategy down through the years has been a very regular and wise investment plan. I am not quite sure how I came up with this marvelous plan, but one day it just hit me. Ever since that time, I have been using my financial investment plan. My investment plan only cost me $19.79 back in the year of our Lord 1986. Since that time, it has faithfully served me and I have no complaints. I have through the years thought about upgrading my investment plan, but then what would the purpose be? Back in 1986, I saw in the mens department of the JCPenney store in our community a very nicely tailored navy blue and gold striped gentlemans vest. It immediately caught my attention and as I examined it, I noticed that inside this vest was a variety of pockets. I looked at them and that is when it hit me. Down through the years I have often wondered why somebody else did not come up with this idea. I guess I am just a genius. I bought the vest and brought it home and hung it in my closet after I first labeled each of the inside pockets. There was a pocket for dollar bills, one for five-dollar bills, one for ten-dollar bills and one that I do not use as often for $20 bills. Every time I have a little bit of change left over I go to my closet turned to my best and invest that money where nobody can find it. My investment plan is more or less an in and out exchange program. When I have a need, I sometimes divest some money. Through the years, it has been a great blessing in my investment plan and is something that I am rather proud of. Solomon put it in great perspective concerning wealth when he said, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain ( Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). My investment plan is well buttoned up for future security.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

And they stayed to become part of the fabric of America. Today 36.9 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry, second only to those who claim German heritage, and more than eight times the population in Ireland, according to the U.S. Census Bureaus 2009 statistics. Enduring hardships and privations, the foods these Irish immigrants cooked in the new land would have replicated foods that reminded them of home dishes such as cottage pie and Irish apple cake. Below are recipes for these dishes from Darina Allens Forgotten Skills of Cooking, (Kyle Books, 2009) now available in the U.S. Allen, considered the Julia Child of Ireland, is on a mission to teach every day home cooks the kind of cooking skills early Irish immigrants would have practiced. There is a real revolution going on about food a longing, a crav ing to re-learn life skills like butchery, keeping chickens, growing vegetables and curing meat, Allen said. The popularity of her Forgotten Skills classes at her renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland, inspired Allen to write the Forgotten Skills cookbook. Allen also has re-issued her Irish Traditional Cooking (Kyle Books), just in time for St. Patricks Day. The recipes below feature Irish dairy products because dairying has been a part of Ireland for centuries, long before potatoes. In Ireland we can grow grass like nowhere else in the world, said Allen with pride. So we have fantastic butter, lovely cream and, of course, cheese. Butter is the fat of the land. Our animals are grass-fed. Grass-fed gives more flavor and more com plex nutrients. This is what we are. Dairy products come from this beautiful, lush green grass. Try the recipes below for a St. Patricks Day celebration. Its easy to repli cate Irish flavors with butter and cheeses made in Ireland and imported to the U.S. under the Kerrygold name. They are widely available at supermarkets and specialty stores throughout the country. And be sure to do as the Irish do: no celebration is complete without a selection of cheeses with good bread and chutney. The cheese board below features Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, Cashel Blue farmhouse cheese, Dubliner and Blarney Castle Irish cheese. For more St. Patricks Day recipes, visit www.kerrygoldusa.com.Cottage Pie with Garlic Butter The cheese in this crust and the lump of garlic butter that melts into the center make this into something very special. Serves 6 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, mashed 1 small onion, chopped 1 pound beef, freshly ground 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup dry white or red wine 1 cup beef stock 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon tomato paste Roux (recipe follows) Salt and freshly ground pepper For the Topping 3 pounds baking potatoes, unpeeled 1 cup whole milk, boiling Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional) 1/4 cup grated Dubliner cheese 1/4 cup grated Kerrygold Aged Cheddar To Serve Garlic Butter (recipe follows) Green salad Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and onion and fry until soft and slightly brown. Increase heat, add ground beef and thyme and fry until beef changes color. Add wine, half the stock, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the unpeeled potatoes, then peel them. Add boiling milk and mash potatoes while they are still hot. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add butter and chives, if using. Preheat the oven to 350F. Bring the rest of the stock to a boil and thicken it well with roux. Stir it into beef it should be thick but still juicy. Taste and correct seasoning. Put meat mixture into one large or six indivi dual pie dishes. Pipe or spread mashed potato mixtureoverthetop.Sprinklewithgratedcheeses. Bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden and slightly crispy. Serve with garlic butter and a green salad. Roux Roux can be stored in a cool place and used as required, or it can be made up on the spot if preferred to thicken up a sauce. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter Scant cup all-purpose flour Meltbutterinapanandcookflourinitfor2min utes on low heat, stirring occasionally. It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator.Garlic Butter Slather over bruschetta or toast. Also great with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 3 to 5 cloves crushed garlic A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice Whip butter, then add in parsley, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice at a time. Roll into butter pats or form into a roll and wrap in parchment paper or foil, twisting each end. Refrigerate to harden. CelebratingSt.PatricksDaySift flour and baking powder into bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of bread crumbs then add 1/3 cup super fine sugar. Make a well in the center and mix to a soft dough with beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a board divide in two. Put one half onto an oven proof plate and press it out with floured fingers to cover the base. Peel, core, and chop up apples. Place them on the dough and tuck in cloves, if using. Sprinkle over some or all remaining sugar, depending on the sweetness of the apples. Roll out the second half of the pastry and fit it on top easier said than done as this pastry is more like scone dough and as a result is very soft. Press the sides together, cut a slit through the lid, egg wash, and bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on top. Dredge with super fine sugar and serve warm with raw sugar and softly whipped cream. These recipes are adapted from Forgotten Skills of Cooking. Recipe introductions are from Darina Allen. Irish Apple CakeIrish Apple Cake varies from house to house, and the technique has been passed from mother to daughter in farmhouses all over the country for generations. Serves about 6 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 1/2 cup superfine sugar, divided 1 egg About 1/4 to 1/2 cup whole milk 1 to 2 cooking apples 2 to 3 cloves, optional Egg wash 10-inch ovenproof plate Preheat the oven to 350F.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com Lets Murder Marsha will have you laughing at the silly antics caused by misinterpreting an overheard conversation!

New England ClubSeveral new members were welcomed into the New England Club at the February meeting, and at the conclusion of business and announcements, light refreshments and coffee were enjoyed.

Please note that the March 15 meeting time has been changed to 3:30 at the Arbor Club Ballroom.

Membership is open to residents of On Top of the World who have resided and/or have an interest in the Northeast. Annual dues are $10 per person. Softball LeagueThe Great Clips team is starting to show its dominance over the rest of the league; with the help of its power hitting short stop, it has pulled five games in front of its closest rival. It seems they are going to be difficult to catch for the rest of the season, unless the other teams can pull themselves together. The closest rival is the Dr. Dunn team, but they seem to be faltering and are having a difficult time putting their hitting team together and are now in danger of losing their second place position. The Florida Eye team has pulled within one game of The Dr. Dunn team and have managed to get their hitters on track again. The Cebert Wealth team was in next to last month and has climbed to fourth place, as the young Tee Pee Tire team is having difficulty scoring runs and has fallen to fifth place, but they should be coming back, as they demonstrated in their last game. The Wiseway Team continues to struggle with lapses in fielding and the inability to hold on to leads. Its going to be an interesting next couple of months as we begin to wind down to the end of the season!

The editors of Sunshine Review, an online non-profit watchdog group for open government, handed out 217 awards to less than four percent of the 6,000 government websites it scored in February. The organization graded MCPS an Afor its public information transparency, the same grade as the two previous years. Marions district web site www.marion.k12.fl.us scored a near-perfect 10 on a transparency checklist evaluating the online accessibility of budgets, meetings, elected and administrative officials, contracts, audits, public records, academics, and background checks. As in previous years, the final taxes category proved to be the districts only online weakness, with Sunshine Review wanting more tax information posted. The district will attempt to resolve this to be even more transparent. State-wide, Sunshine Review gave Floridas 74 public and special school districts an overall C. Only 13 of the states 74 school districts earned an A. Sunshine Review, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, launched in July 2008 as a customer service hot-line for government transparency and accountability. The organization used a Point Transparency Checklist to analyze 50 state websites and more than 6,000 local government websites for the latest round of Sunny Awards.

and the qualifications for various licenses. Paul Mac McIntyre, owner of The Right Training firearms school and Cherrywoods own, Ramberto Rambo Rodriguez, an NRA Instructor, spoke about a special day of instruction and shooting available to Cherrywood Residents. On March 10 and March 27, classes will be offered at discount prices that qualify individuals to receive their Concealed Weapons Permit and how to handle, safely store and competently operate firearms. There are even special classes for Women Only if some of the ladies are a little bit shy about showing off their firearms skills in front of the men. The class was informative and the offer excellent. Contact Mac at 352-350-2855 to sign up or get more info. Just a footnote for the Veterans; next month is election of officers so get your nominations in to Bill Mahar, club president. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future; or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on a familiar face to many of us who take part in the activities in our neighborhood, Fred OHern. Fred is retired from the U.S. Air Force where he served for 28 years, earning the rank of Command Chief Master Sergeant. He served most of those years in Explosives, Ordnance and Demolition (EOD). His areas of assignment varied from Laos, to Iran, with Italy, Thailand, Germany and his favorite, England also part of his 22 years of overseas service. One of the reasons he enjoyed England so much is that he met his wife Marion there. They have been married 36 years and have one son, Patrick who lives with his wife in Washington. He also has two grandsons, Jacob and Corey. Corey is scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan and Jacob will soon report to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. Fred speaks with pride of his grandsons and his eyes light up when he talks about his great-granddaughter Tatyem. Following his retirement from the Air Force, Fred took a position as the postmaster of Coventry England. He served there for 10 years before retiring. Fred and Marion then moved to Florida and the Cherrywood Estates in 1999. Since that time his energy has been spent on veterans projects, social activities and charities connected with the community. Ever energetic and eager to serve, Fred is a charter member and was president of the Veterans Club for eight years. He is active on the Social Committee which his brother Jay chairs, and is co-emcee of Trivia Nights. He also heads up Bocce Ball on Saturday nights. The Social Committee holds several events through out the year such as Dingus Day; Fun in the Sun; 100 Days of Summer and many more, all of which Fred helps promote and carry out. Fred describes himself as a natural extrovert who enjoys people and making Cherrywood a united and fun community. We would have to say that after his many years of service to this cause, he has been extremely successful in reaching his goal. The affection he holds for his friends and neighbors is obvious in everything he does so when you see Fred, give him a warm handshake and say Thank you. It is people like him that make Cherrywood a great place to live. From Your Reporter:Your comments and suggestions for stories are always welcome so please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. S aturday morning, March 3, was warm and dewy. Just before dawn, at 6:30 in the morning, 11 of the 15 volunteers who signed up for the Marion County Kidney Foundation 5K fundraiser assembled at the Cherrywood Clubhouse. Wearing the lime green T-shirts provided by and personally delivered by Foundation President Delores Pina to team captain Holly Bragdon; the bright group posed for photos. All agreed to dedicate their run to a much loved and respected neighbor, Skip Smith. Skip is in the hospital bravely fighting a lifethreatening illness. Many held Skips picture for the group photo. Soon the whole group had car pooled the 25 minutes to the Greenway Trailhead Park. Eager to begin their adventure, there was never a word of complaint from the team about the early morning hour; the walk; or the sacrifice of their Saturday morning relaxation. All 11 of our walkers/runners assembled at the starting line with a few hundred other individuals. They took their place, stretched, and looked ahead. At 8:05 they were off. While the teams walked, I talked with one of the lead volunteers for the Marion County Kidney Foundation, Debbie Schlosser. Debbie has a special interest in the Foundation because not only has she worked for the Ocala Kidney Group for the past 23 years, but her husband and sister-in-law are both coping with Kidney disease. Debbie happily reported that this years 5K fund raiser was approximately 25 percent bigger than last year with more vendors and participants than ever before. She estimated that there were between 580 and 590 people taking part. All the funds raised go to patients and awareness programs in Marion County, Debbie said adding that she loved to educate the young people about preventing kidney disease. A brief stroll around the grounds listening to the live music and seeing many smiling faces at the numerous vendors tables was about all I had time to get in before heading to the finish line. Our walkers were getting close and I didnt want to miss being there. Sure enough, just less than an hour after starting, our team came strolling rapidly down the trail. With big grins on their faces and hands in the air they crossed the finish line to the applause of the many onlookers and volunteers who stood and cheered. Looking as fresh as when they began, they all did a great job and not only finished the race but some even finished in second, third and fourth place for their age divisions. Richard Hurley was advised that he had come in second for his age group and smiling said, I wasnt even trying. Some of those who signed up were unable to take part because of other commitments and responsibilities, but their support is no less appreciated. Those contributors were Sandee Spencer, Marty Dean, Bill Mahar and a kidney cancer survivor, Arleen Mayberry. Thank you all for your contribution and we look forward to seeing you on the trail next year. Our team, the Cherrywood Cuties (sorry guys) was made up of Marilyn Wood, Ruth Hurley, Donna James, Eve Houghtaling, Kathy Robson, Joan Siegel, Gerry Giovanniello, Mick James, Jenny Arturi, Rich Hurley and team captain, Holly Bragdon. In many emails with coordinator, Kathy Cotto of the Kidney Foundation, I have been told how much it meant to have Cherrywood participate in this years 5K. I pass along their sincere thank you to all of you who supported and took part. May I add my personal thanks to each of you? You should be proud of what youve accomplished and commended for your dedication, hard work and sacrifice. Youve made it possible to ease suffering; taken steps to help prevent a terrible illness and made the world a better place because you were there. Well done! Garden ClubOn March 21 at 11 a.m., the Garden Club will gather for another informative and interesting meeting. Bring along your old cuttings and clippings to learn how to rejuvenate and care for them. Learn more about this years planting season also. Dont forget the Master Gardner Plant Sale on March 10 & 11 at the Agriculture Center on Old Jacksonville Road. There will be lots of plants and information there to help you make 2012 your best year yet for gardening. Say CheeseTheres been a lot of interest expressed in starting a photo club.

Gayle Huels won the stacking marshmallows competition and in another fun game, Maggie Pitzer attempted to pick up a nut with a coffee stirrer and pass it off to her partner, Jim Clark. The competition was hilarious and stiff between those two and their opponents, Marie Ustianowski and Pat McKenna. Everyone had a great time and then shared dessert and coffee.

If you know of anyone or you personally have any knitting supplies available that you would like to give to a worthy cause, please consider our knitters.

Our Knitting Club members will take these donations and provide artistic and useful hand crafted items that will be used for charities such as Devereaux Kids; Hospice; Kimberlys Cottage and the Marion County Sheriffs Department. If you are in a thrift store or similar shop, maybe you could pick up some things for a few dollars and drop them off at the office.

and the qualifications for various licenses. Paul Mac McIntyre, owner of The Right Training firearms school and Cherrywoods own, Ramberto Rambo Rodriguez, an NRA Instructor, spoke about a special day of instruction and shooting available to Cherrywood Residents. On March 10 and March 27, classes will be offered at discount prices that qualify individuals to receive their Concealed Weapons Permit and how to handle, safely store and competently operate firearms. There are even special classes for Women Only if some of the ladies are a little bit shy about showing off their firearms skills in front of the men. The class was informative and the offer excellent. Contact Mac at 352-350-2855 to sign up or get more info. Just a footnote for the Veterans; next month is election of officers so get your nominations in to Bill Mahar, club president. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future; or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on a familiar face to many of us who take part in the activities in our neighborhood, Fred OHern. Fred is retired from the U.S. Air Force where he served for 28 years, earning the rank of Command Chief Master Sergeant. He served most of those years in Explosives, Ordnance and Demolition (EOD). His areas of assignment varied from Laos, to Iran, with Italy, Thailand, Germany and his favorite, England also part of his 22 years of overseas service. One of the reasons he enjoyed England so much is that he met his wife Marion there. They have been married 36 years and have one son, Patrick who lives with his wife in Washington. He also has two grandsons, Jacob and Corey. Corey is scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan and Jacob will soon report to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. Fred speaks with pride of his grandsons and his eyes light up when he talks about his great-granddaughter Tatyem. Following his retirement from the Air Force, Fred took a position as the postmaster of Coventry England. He served there for 10 years before retiring. Fred and Marion then moved to Florida and the Cherrywood Estates in 1999. Since that time his energy has been spent on veterans projects, social activities and charities connected with the community. Ever energetic and eager to serve, Fred is a charter member and was president of the Veterans Club for eight years. He is active on the Social Committee which his brother Jay chairs, and is co-emcee of Trivia Nights. He also heads up Bocce Ball on Saturday nights. The Social Committee holds several events through out the year such as Dingus Day; Fun in the Sun; 100 Days of Summer and many more, all of which Fred helps promote and carry out. Fred describes himself as a natural extrovert who enjoys people and making Cherrywood a united and fun community. We would have to say that after his many years of service to this cause, he has been extremely successful in reaching his goal. The affection he holds for his friends and neighbors is obvious in everything he does so when you see Fred, give him a warm handshake and say Thank you. It is people like him that make Cherrywood a great place to live.

Just before dawn, at 6:30 in the morning, 11 of the 15 volunteers who signed up for the Marion County Kidney Foundation 5K fundraiser assembled at the Cherrywood Clubhouse. Wearing the lime green T-shirts provided by and personally delivered by Foundation President Delores Pina to team captain Holly Bragdon; the bright group posed for photos. All agreed to dedicate their run to a much loved and respected neighbor, Skip Smith. Skip is in the hospital bravely fighting a lifethreatening illness. Many held Skips picture for the group photo. Soon the whole group had car pooled the 25 minutes to the Greenway Trailhead Park. Eager to begin their adventure, there was never a word of complaint from the team about the early morning hour; the walk; or the sacrifice of their Saturday morning relaxation. All 11 of our walkers/runners assembled at the starting line with a few hundred other individuals. They took their place, stretched, and looked ahead. At 8:05 they were off. While the teams walked, I talked with one of the lead volunteers for the Marion County Kidney Foundation, Debbie Schlosser. Debbie has a special interest in the Foundation because not only has she worked for the Ocala Kidney Group for the past 23 years, but her husband and sister-in-law are both coping with Kidney disease. Debbie happily reported that this years 5K fund raiser was approximately 25 percent bigger than last year with more vendors and participants than ever before. She estimated that there were between 580 and 590 people taking part. All the funds raised go to patients and awareness programs in Marion County, Debbie said adding that she loved to educate the young people about preventing kidney disease. A brief stroll around the grounds listening to the live music and seeing many smiling faces at the numerous vendors tables was about all I had time to get in before heading to the finish line. Our walkers were getting close and I didnt want to miss being there. Sure enough, just less than an hour after starting, our team came strolling rapidly down the trail. With big grins on their faces and hands in the air they crossed the finish line to the applause of the many onlookers and volunteers who stood and cheered. Looking as fresh as when they began, they all did a great job and not only finished the race but some even finished in second, third and fourth place for their age divisions. Richard Hurley was advised that he had come in second for his age group and smiling said, I wasnt even trying. Some of those who signed up were unable to take part because of other commitments and responsibilities, but their support is no less appreciated. Those contributors were Sandee Spencer, Marty Dean, Bill Mahar and a kidney cancer survivor, Arleen Mayberry. Thank you all for your contribution and we look forward to seeing you on the trail next year. Our team, the Cherrywood Cuties (sorry guys) was made up of Marilyn Wood, Ruth Hurley, Donna James, Eve Houghtaling, Kathy Robson, Joan Siegel, Gerry Giovanniello, Mick James, Jenny Arturi, Rich Hurley and team captain, Holly Bragdon. In many emails with coordinator, Kathy Cotto of the Kidney Foundation, I have been told how much it meant to have Cherrywood participate in this years 5K. I pass along their sincere thank you to all of you who supported and took part. May I add my personal thanks to each of you? You should be proud of what youve accomplished and commended for your dedication, hard work and sacrifice. Youve made it possible to ease suffering; taken steps to help prevent a terrible illness and made the world a better place because you were there. Well done! Garden ClubOn March 21 at 11 a.m., the Garden Club will gather for another informative and interesting meeting. Bring along your old cuttings and clippings to learn how to rejuvenate and care for them. Learn more about this years planting season also. Dont forget the Master Gardner Plant Sale on March 10 & 11 at the Agriculture Center on Old Jacksonville Road. There will be lots of plants and information there to help you make 2012 your best year yet for gardening. Say CheeseTheres been a lot of interest expressed in starting a photo club.

Membership is open to residents of On Top of the World who have resided and/or have an interest in the Northeast. Annual dues are $10 per person. Softball LeagueThe Great Clips team is starting to show its dominance over the rest of the league; with the help of its power hitting short stop, it has pulled five games in front of its closest rival. It seems they are going to be difficult to catch for the rest of the season, unless the other teams can pull themselves together. The closest rival is the Dr. Dunn team, but they seem to be faltering and are having a difficult time putting their hitting team together and are now in danger of losing their second place position. The Florida Eye team has pulled within one game of The Dr. Dunn team and have managed to get their hitters on track again. The Cebert Wealth team was in next to last month and has climbed to fourth place, as the young Tee Pee Tire team is having difficulty scoring runs and has fallen to fifth place, but they should be coming back, as they demonstrated in their last game. The Wiseway Team continues to struggle with lapses in fielding and the inability to hold on to leads. Its going to be an interesting next couple of months as we begin to wind down to the end of the season!

The editors of Sunshine Review, an online non-profit watchdog group for open government, handed out 217 awards to less than four percent of the 6,000 government websites it scored in February. The organization graded MCPS an Afor its public information transparency, the same grade as the two previous years. Marions district web site www.marion.k12.fl.us scored a near-perfect 10 on a transparency checklist evaluating the online accessibility of budgets, meetings, elected and administrative officials, contracts, audits, public records, academics, and background checks. As in previous years, the final taxes category proved to be the districts only online weakness, with Sunshine Review wanting more tax information posted. The district will attempt to resolve this to be even more transparent. State-wide, Sunshine Review gave Floridas 74 public and special school districts an overall C. Only 13 of the states 74 school districts earned an A. Sunshine Review, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, launched in July 2008 as a customer service hot-line for government transparency and accountability. The organization used a Point Transparency Checklist to analyze 50 state websites and more than 6,000 local government websites for the latest round of Sunny Awards.

And they stayed to become part of the fabric of America. Today 36.9 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry, second only to those who claim German heritage, and more than eight times the population in Ireland, according to the U.S. Census Bureaus 2009 statistics. Enduring hardships and privations, the foods these Irish immigrants cooked in the new land would have replicated foods that reminded them of home dishes such as cottage pie and Irish apple cake. Below are recipes for these dishes from Darina Allens Forgotten Skills of Cooking, (Kyle Books, 2009) now available in the U.S. Allen, considered the Julia Child of Ireland, is on a mission to teach every day home cooks the kind of cooking skills early Irish immigrants would have practiced. There is a real revolution going on about food a longing, a crav ing to re-learn life skills like butchery, keeping chickens, growing vegetables and curing meat, Allen said. The popularity of her Forgotten Skills classes at her renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland, inspired Allen to write the Forgotten Skills cookbook. Allen also has re-issued her Irish Traditional Cooking (Kyle Books), just in time for St. Patricks Day. The recipes below feature Irish dairy products because dairying has been a part of Ireland for centuries, long before potatoes. In Ireland we can grow grass like nowhere else in the world, said Allen with pride. So we have fantastic butter, lovely cream and, of course, cheese. Butter is the fat of the land. Our animals are grass-fed. Grass-fed gives more flavor and more com plex nutrients. This is what we are. Dairy products come from this beautiful, lush green grass. Try the recipes below for a St. Patricks Day celebration. Its easy to repli cate Irish flavors with butter and cheeses made in Ireland and imported to the U.S. under the Kerrygold name. They are widely available at supermarkets and specialty stores throughout the country. And be sure to do as the Irish do: no celebration is complete without a selection of cheeses with good bread and chutney. The cheese board below features Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, Cashel Blue farmhouse cheese, Dubliner and Blarney Castle Irish cheese. For more St. Patricks Day recipes, visit www.kerrygoldusa.com.Cottage Pie with Garlic Butter The cheese in this crust and the lump of garlic butter that melts into the center make this into something very special. Serves 6 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, mashed 1 small onion, chopped 1 pound beef, freshly ground 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup dry white or red wine 1 cup beef stock 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon tomato paste Roux (recipe follows) Salt and freshly ground pepper For the Topping 3 pounds baking potatoes, unpeeled 1 cup whole milk, boiling Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional) 1/4 cup grated Dubliner cheese 1/4 cup grated Kerrygold Aged Cheddar To Serve Garlic Butter (recipe follows) Green salad Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and onion and fry until soft and slightly brown. Increase heat, add ground beef and thyme and fry until beef changes color. Add wine, half the stock, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the unpeeled potatoes, then peel them. Add boiling milk and mash potatoes while they are still hot. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add butter and chives, if using. Preheat the oven to 350F. Bring the rest of the stock to a boil and thicken it well with roux. Stir it into beef it should be thick but still juicy. Taste and correct seasoning. Put meat mixture into one large or six indivi dual pie dishes. Pipe or spread mashed potato mixtureoverthetop.Sprinklewithgratedcheeses. Bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden and slightly crispy. Serve with garlic butter and a green salad. Roux Roux can be stored in a cool place and used as required, or it can be made up on the spot if preferred to thicken up a sauce. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter Scant cup all-purpose flour Meltbutterinapanandcookflourinitfor2min utes on low heat, stirring occasionally. It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator.Garlic Butter Slather over bruschetta or toast. Also great with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 3 to 5 cloves crushed garlic A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice Whip butter, then add in parsley, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice at a time. Roll into butter pats or form into a roll and wrap in parchment paper or foil, twisting each end. Refrigerate to harden. CelebratingSt.PatricksDaySift flour and baking powder into bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of bread crumbs then add 1/3 cup super fine sugar. Make a well in the center and mix to a soft dough with beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a board divide in two. Put one half onto an oven proof plate and press it out with floured fingers to cover the base. Peel, core, and chop up apples. Place them on the dough and tuck in cloves, if using. Sprinkle over some or all remaining sugar, depending on the sweetness of the apples. Roll out the second half of the pastry and fit it on top easier said than done as this pastry is more like scone dough and as a result is very soft. Press the sides together, cut a slit through the lid, egg wash, and bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on top. Dredge with super fine sugar and serve warm with raw sugar and softly whipped cream. These recipes are adapted from Forgotten Skills of Cooking. Recipe introductions are from Darina Allen. Irish Apple CakeIrish Apple Cake varies from house to house, and the technique has been passed from mother to daughter in farmhouses all over the country for generations. Serves about 6 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 8 tablespoons Kerrygold Irish butter 1/2 cup superfine sugar, divided 1 egg About 1/4 to 1/2 cup whole milk 1 to 2 cooking apples 2 to 3 cloves, optional Egg wash 10-inch ovenproof plate Preheat the oven to 350F.

I find it quite amusing that some of the brightest and richest people in our country do not seem to have a clue as to what they are doing. Most do not have the common sense that God gave to a caterpillar. As Abraham Lincoln used to say, common sense is not as common as it used to be. Amen, to that one. The financial experts are telling us that we need to buy gold or silver to safeguard our investments. I am way ahead of the game. Several years ago, I got a gold tooth. Fortunately, for me, I got it before the financial crisis in our country. I cannot tell you what a remarkable feeling it is to walk around with your fortune in your mouth. I hear about all of the investment schemes that are supposed to make me rich. I have a sneaking suspicion that the only people getting rich are those with the investment schemes. They want us to buy stocks and bonds and futures. I never heard of anything so silly in all my life. What would I do with stocks, bonds and futures, whatever in the world they are, in my portfolio. I have no idea what a portfolio is but I am certain it has something to do with these investment schemes. I just do not want anybody folioing around with my port, thank you very much, sir. If I got my facts right, and I looked it up in the dictionary, port has something to do with wine. Why would I want to put a bottle of port into my folio and pretend it is some kind of an investment? I really have to give it to these investment schemers. They really know how to pull the wool over our eyes. I want to go on record as saying that they are not pulling any wool over my eyes. Just leave my wool alone. If I want my wool pulled, it certainly will not be over my eyes, I will tell you that right here. This wool pulling sounds more like sheep fleecing to me, and I want nothing to do with it. For me I have discovered a way of safeguarding my wealth. My basic financial philosophy is simply spend less than I make. I know that is a revolutionary concept in todays world, but it has stood me in good stead for many a year. We live in a culture that has absolutely no spending control whatsoever. This culture does not know the relationship between saving money and spending money. For example. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came home the other day and in a very exuberant tone told me how much she saved at the grocery store. I saved $119.23 today at the grocery store. Isnt that terrific? Being the humble, demure sort of guy that I am, I did not ask her a question that was buzzing around my head at the time. The question was, how much did it cost me to save you that much money? Having a happy home is more important to me than exploring truth at its core. Especially in this area. My financial strategy down through the years has been a very regular and wise investment plan. I am not quite sure how I came up with this marvelous plan, but one day it just hit me. Ever since that time, I have been using my financial investment plan. My investment plan only cost me $19.79 back in the year of our Lord 1986. Since that time, it has faithfully served me and I have no complaints. I have through the years thought about upgrading my investment plan, but then what would the purpose be? Back in 1986, I saw in the mens department of the JCPenney store in our community a very nicely tailored navy blue and gold striped gentlemans vest. It immediately caught my attention and as I examined it, I noticed that inside this vest was a variety of pockets. I looked at them and that is when it hit me. Down through the years I have often wondered why somebody else did not come up with this idea. I guess I am just a genius. I bought the vest and brought it home and hung it in my closet after I first labeled each of the inside pockets. There was a pocket for dollar bills, one for five-dollar bills, one for ten-dollar bills and one that I do not use as often for $20 bills. Every time I have a little bit of change left over I go to my closet turned to my best and invest that money where nobody can find it. My investment plan is more or less an in and out exchange program. When I have a need, I sometimes divest some money. Through the years, it has been a great blessing in my investment plan and is something that I am rather proud of. Solomon put it in great perspective concerning wealth when he said, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain ( Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). My investment plan is well buttoned up for future security.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com An unspoken problem in identifying and delaying suspicious payment requests has been the Congressional directive to DHHS to make payments promptly, meaning 15 to 30 days. Now that DHHS has its new anti-fraud program, Congress expects both hurry-up payments and hurry-up recoveries. Maybe the Senate should consider passing a hurry-up federal budget, after three years without one. Another restraint on aggressive attention to fraud, waste, and abuse is an understandable aversion of federal workers to being seen as whistleblowers, a function which is not included in their job descriptions. In the case of the new fraud computer system were inclined to give DHHS the benefit of time and concede that Congress is premature in its assessment that they must have left out some zeroes. The deputy director of the DHHS anti-fraud program, a former federal prosecutor, says theyve turned up 2500 leads and identified 600 suspicious cases. Major investigations arent built in a day, a week, or even six months. Given a reasonable amount of time, there just might be a pot of gold at the end of this DHHS rainbow. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Birth controlAs for the Sandra Fouke birth control contraception issue a few points. To begin with, seeing her portrayed as a college student doesn't wash. She's no 18-year-old coed but an older-than-most law student of 30 or 31. Also she doesn't come across as too swift with her very excessive and comical contraception cost. This has nothing to do with health issues but the public paying for sex in our handout society. Today, we have people that knock success (being rich), reward mediocrity and failure with a president who apologies for our country to anyone over anything. Sad but true and let's hope things start changing in November. B ob Cronin Oak Run LETTER TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMN BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the Citizen Reactions to my Heart Felt Thanks article that appeared in recent past issues of the Messenger and the Citizen have been overwhelming and amazing at the same time. Thank you to all who have contacted me by phone or email. If, by some chance, I have not contacted you within a couple of weeks, please contact me again. I certainly am not above misplacing a name or phone number with all that has been going on at our home. Rest assured that there will be a follow up article in which I will reference the calls or emails from those of you who have said that my husbands experience spoke to you and your loved ones who have had similar experiences. This has prompted many of you to want to share your stories with others as well. I find that amazingly inspiring. My husband, Phil, has experienced some temporary setbacks. These have proved to be more like bumps in that road to recovery often heard about after major surgery for a serious condition. Many of you will recognize a similar pattern with your personal story as Phil has recently made two trips to the cardiologists office, had a short stint back in the hospital, made a visit to the lab for more blood work, and also paid a visit to the primary care physician (not necessarily in that order). There have been some additional concerns with new medications and some disconcerting bruising from those IV sites when a patient is prescribed Coumadin, Plavix, Heparin, aspirin, Prednisone or other such meds. I will be calling upon many of you who have magnificent stories of hope and recovery to share with others. Your insights into the excellent care provided by many of our local physicians and caregivers are heart-warming. So, too, are the stories that perhaps began in some other part of the country before you migrated to Florida. There has been such a response that I feel sure that this may well become a series of stories of hope and thanks that will be unfolding and perhaps may be told by a better writer than I am. Whoever writes Readers are truly wonderful and so appreciated these stories, the stories need to be told. The thing that really jumps out at me the primary home care giver is the stress and angst felt as we try to be so strong for our loved ones. We have to learn that same old lesson that we hear over and over. We cannot help others if we dont take care of ourselves. That often becomes a secondary issue that should be given more attention. Honestly, I must say that there are times when I feel my patience wearing so thin that I become ashamed or embarrassed because I am in such good health that I think that I should not let the situation be causing me to lose my cool. However, from having talked with others, this is not an uncommon occurrence. We are all human, and we have our limits. I am trying to remember that. Once again, thank you for giving me such encouragement by way of your calls, emails, and personal visits. I feel that when this kind of story is shared, each of us is empowered to do a better job than we might have without having heard that others went through overwhelming illnesses or have felt much the same as we feel. Please feel free to email me at pbgeissal@aol.com if you have criticism or comments. They will be appreciated. Priscilla Geissal is Fairfield Village writer for the West Marion Messenger.

Early performance reports however are subject to lengthy questioning by Congress as to why the new program isnt accomplishing more and faster. One such sequence accompanied the $77 million Medicare fraud computer system which was launched last summer. In its first six months the system captured one suspicious payment and saved $7,591. The Senate Committee on Federal Financial Management said it was disappointed. We wonder whether the Senate is aware of how disappointed taxpayers are in their financial management? Medicare says assessment of the new anti-fraud program is too soon and unfair. They say taking their other activities into account, the potential savings in the first six months could easily exceed $20 million. The new computer system is designed to scan and analyze large numbers of claims and identify suspicious patterns before payments are made. Its the sort of stuff intelligence agencies do with electronic communications. Banks also have screening systems which alert them to suspicious uses of customers debit, credit, and ATM cards. The purpose of the $77 million dollar anti-fraud contract given to Northrup-Grumman (they make airplanes) was to discontinue the current practice of payand-chase, under which automatic payments are reviewed for fraud, waste, and abuse weeks after the money is spent. By the time the review is made and the chase begins the fraudsters can be sunning themselves on a beach in the Caribbean. Last year, under pay and chase, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) did recover $4.1 billion stolen or fraudulently received in prior years under Medicare and Medicaid, Thats not much when government spends $2.5 trillion annually for health care, and Medicare fraud alone is estimated to be $60 billion a year. Nonetheless, the president took a success bow at the press release. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 I f you are a veteran or spouse of a veteran and you are in an assisted living community, or if you have a relative who is a veteran or spouse of a vet, Im going to tell you about a program I just found out about last week. Of course, a lot of you are smarter than I am, so you probably know about this already. But I didnt, and it cost my dad thousands of dollars over the years he was in assisted living before he died. The Veterans Administration, which I shall refer to as the VA, has a program under Disability Pension VA Benefits which pays so much per month to those who are qualified and are in an assisted living community (they like to be called communities, not facilities). You have to apply for it, and you cant apply until after you move in to an assisted living community. Once it is approved, according to one of my sources, it is retroactive to when you moved in and is paid monthly directly to the individual, not to the assisted living company. There are certain qualifications, such has having served in time of war (even if you didnt see combat) and receiving an honorable discharge. There are more, of course, as you would expect from a government agency. However, just the fact that some program is there is worth exploring. I found all this out because I started investigating last week for a family member who might have to go into assisted living. I went to three different communities, and each one told me about the program. One even gave me an information sheet, which has been passed on to the relative. What really annoys me is that in 1997, after my mother had died, we had to put my dad in assisted living because he had dementia, and we were afraid that harm might come to him if he were on his own. He was there for about seven years, in a place that has since been bought out by a different company. When we were investigating assisted living back 15 years ago, we knew very little about it. This time we knew what to ask, and the answers were very helpful. So if you think you might have someone who is eligible, ask the personnel, maybe the marketing director of administrator, to steer you in the right direction. Each of the people I talked to had someone they could refer me to for getting an application. Yes, youre dealing with the government, so we might sarcastically say Good luck. But lets face it. If theres a chance you can get some money out of the feds, by all means you should try.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T hose who drive to work early in the morning will have to face a dismal fact beginning next week. Its going to be darker, later. This Sunday morning (or Saturday night), we go through the annual ritual of turning our clocks ahead. In the spring, that means we lose an hours sleep, and that the sun rises an hour later. Of course at the end of the day, we get a little more daylight, but that also means putting the little children and grandchildren to bed while its still daylight. Weve argued against changing back and forth for years, as have many Americans, but to no avail. Someone, somewhere, thinks this is a good idea. So we just have to live with it. One good thing about the twice-a-year time change: It serves as a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors. Make sure you keep yourself protected. You do have a working smoke detector, dont you? So dont forget, when you go to bed Saturday night, turn those clocks ahead, or else youll be an hour late for church on Sunday morning. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Once again, lets change the clocks Help for vets, spouses in assisted living Jim Flynn Columnist LETTER TO THE EDITOR Adventures of a federal anti-fraud squad Its not freeJust because you dont have to pay for it doesnt mean it is free. Someone has to pay the bill and no, the Insurance Company will not end up paying for it either. Every expense the company has is covered by the income received (premiums from those of us who pay our way), and if the expenses rise, so do our premiums. The federal and local governments raise our taxes. So much has been made of the question of Catholic hospitals having to pay birth control expenses, and that is ridiculous. I would guess 90 percent of us believe in birth control, but I have never thought it was the responsibility of someone else to pay for it. Pay for your own birth control! I question why the majority of women would believe government has the right to invade their privacy on such a matter. This is a family issue and should be treated as such. When we go down the road of free, where does it end? I get so tired of hearing, oh the government pays for it, be it health care, housing, food, or whatever. Our taxes should not be based on our governments being in the charity business. Its not my or your responsibility to pay for the above expenses unless we choose to do so. That is what charity is about, taking care of our loved ones when in need, through our local church, organizations set up for same, and our own families. We should always remember that the government doesnt have money, it is the taxpayers money. We raised and educated five children and it was a struggle. However, we never held our hand out or thought others should pay for their housing, schooling or health care. They were/are our responsibility and we were to take care of their needs. We have too many now searching for a government program to pay the way and that is not what individual responsibility is about. I am not talking about those who are truly in need, and there is a big difference. We have good programs in place for the truly needy, not for those who just use the system, holding their hand out. This has to stop! The above problems are magnified with the introduction of Obama Care. I sincerely request you thoroughly read it, if you do, there is no way you will approve what it does to our hospitals, doctors and to us as individuals. It is designed to destroy our health system through regulation, it is about more government power and it will take away our freedom more than anyone can imagine. Read it!!! Wa y ne R ac k le y Ocala Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED BY CAPT. JIM BURTON Marion County Sheriffs OfficeI have noticed an old scam that is starting again. Recently some of our residents have fallen victim to a scam involving a supposed family member who is in trouble with the police or illegal gambling debts or some other issue. The victim receives a call from someone posing as a family member who needs money wired to get them out of a problem. The caller uses open ended questions or statements such as, Hey grandma, this is your favorite grandson, eliciting your response to call them byname. The victim, without verifying the story, rushes down to wire money to the family member in need, later to realize the person the victim thought they were helping is fine, safe and sound at home, after the victim calls to check on them, and they were never in any trouble. Please, if you get a call like this, call the family of the alleged family member or call the person yourself on their number that you already have, not the number provided by the caller, and verify the need is legitimate. This scam, as many similar scams to remove you from your money, relies upon your kneejerk reaction instead of taking a few minutes to verify the story before losing several thousands of dollars. If you need any assistance concerning this scam or similar scams, please contact us at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Capt.

Five actors play over 100 characters in this Tony-winner that kept Broadway rollicking for the past three years. It is part juicy spy novel, part Monty Python, and it preserves the brilliance originally created by the master of suspense. Go on the adventure with our suave hero Richard Hannay who learns from a beautiful spy about a plot of international espionage. The woman is killed in Hannays flat and he suddenly finds himself caught up in a race from London to Scotland in hopes of stopping military secrets from being smuggled out of the country. As he searches for the secret of The 39 Steps he is doggedly pursued by the police who believe he is a murderer. The play remains very close to the film, particularly in terms of its frenetic timing. But putting the movie a farce-like whirlwind adventure on stage requires ingenious theatrical devises to instantly go from a chase scene on a train, to a plane crash, transform into a luxurious Scottish manor, then to a London flat, or suddenly become The London Palladium. Also occurring at breakneck speed are nearly one-hundred costume changes, which often happen right before the audience in the blink of an eye. Performances run Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through March 18 at The Insomniac Theater, 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Ocala, on the Square. General seating is only $10. For more information or ticket reservations and purchases call the hotline at 352-897-0477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com. Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Keep an open mind about a suggestion you see as unworkable. Give it a chance to prove itself one way or another. The results could surprise both supporters and detractors. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about an upcoming venture causes you to make some last-minute adjustments in your plans. But the extra work will pay off, as you come to learn more about the potential benefits opening up. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A more positive aspect grows out of your determination to reach your immediate goals. Continue to keep your focus sharp and on target by steering clear of petty quarrels and other pesky problems. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) By acting as a voice of reason, you can avoid adding to an already turbulent situation. You might have to shout over the tumult, but your words ultimately will be heard and heeded. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The possibility of a new acquisition always makes those Leonine eyes light up. But be careful that what you see is what you want. Appearances can often be deceiving. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) No matter how much you might feel that youre in the right, resist saying anything that could reignite a still unresolved situation. Let the matter drop, and move on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Help with a personal problem comes from an unexpected source. You also find workplace pressures easing. Use this period of calm to restore your spent energies. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to share the credit for that project youre working on. But therell be enough credit to go around, and your efforts will be recognized and rewarded. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Details need to be dealt with before you can move on to another area. Make sure you dont leave any loose ends that could later cause everything to unravel. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) News about a change in the workplace carries with it a challenge you could find difficult to resist. Check it out. It could be what youve been waiting for. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Allowing your artistic nature full expression will help restore your spirits and will put you in the mood to take on that new career challenge. A Libra creates excitement. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Expect to happily plunge right into a hectic social whirl starting at weeks end. Your aspects favor new friendships as well as the strengthening of old relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: Like St. Patrick (who was also born this week), your spiritual strength is an inspiration to others. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

M arch madness is coming. College mens basketball playoffs involving 68 teams will play in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion. Scheduled to begin on March 13, it will conclude with the championship game on April 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley we hope to score a few points with punny stuff that didnt hit the basket. Coaching psychosisThe professor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving an oral test. He asked, How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next? A student raised his hand and answered, A basketball coach? Barnyard rulesIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls. Cell time After a basketball game, the coach found a cell phone on the gym floor. He picked it up and handed it to one of the referees, saying, Heres your phone. What makes you think its mine? the referee asked. Easy, the coach replied. It says you missed 13 calls. Great losses? Basketball team pictures from the past 20 years hang on the walls in the colleges sports center. A player in the center of the front row in each picture holds a basketball identifying the year -93, -94, -95, etc. One day a freshman looking curiously at the photos said, Isnt it strange how the teams always lost by one point? Foul shots How can they call it March Madness, yet never mention anyone in the Democrat party, anyone in the Republican party, anyone in Hollywood, or Lady Gaga? Two Mexicans playing basketball is called Juan on Juan. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance. The basketball team at the cleaners academy went into a full court press. At the college basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. Fitting the basketball star with size 18 shoes was no small feat. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. Basketball nets in Hawaii are known as hulahoops. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, If you can pass through this door without bending, dont. Old basketball players never die; they just go on dribbling. No KiddingThe captain of a team said to the ref, My coach wants to know if there is a penalty for thinking. The ref said, No. The captain said, Well my coach thinks youre making horribly bad calls. NBA wonderMeanwhile, in the NBA a new sports sensation, New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin, came off the bench and helped win six games including a last-second shot to defeat the Toronto Raptors. Where else but in America can you drink a German beer and watch a Taiwanese basketball player on your Chinese TV beat a team from Canada? Jeremy Lin jerseys are the best NBA seller right now. How cool is this? And nice for the people making the jerseys to see a name they might actually recognize. Limping along The weather today was fantastic. We went outside and played basketball. Just as we were about out of time, I got the ball to take the winning shot, but I missed. One of my teammates demanded to know why I had missed such an easy shot. I sprained my ankle, I told him. Thats a lame excuse, he replied. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, March 9, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, March 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BEFORE THE POISON By Peter RobinsonH eres a heads up for Daphne du Maurier fans. Author Peter Robinson abandons his Inspector Banks series to bring us a romantic suspense novel set in an isolated, sprawling 18th century mansion where 60 years earlier a murder was committed. The storys replete with sighing winds, creaking floorboards, a ghost appearing in a bedroom mirror, and a portrait of the beautiful former mistress of the country manor. Chris Lowndes, a successful Hollywood musician who scored many Oscar-winning films, buys a mansion sight unseen located in the seclusion of Yorkshire Dales. Born in England he had always planned to move back with his beloved wife Laura. But she died and Lowndes, now somewhat elderly, must return alone. He knows nothing about the property hes bought except for a few photographs. But something about it holds a strange attraction for him: I had a curious sensation that the shy, halfhidden house was waiting for me, that it had been waiting for some time, he says. When he meets his attractive Realtor Heather, he senses that shes withholding the history of the mansion. After much coaxing she confesses that in 1953 the owner, Dr. Ernest Fox, was poisoned by his much younger wife Grace who was found guilty of the crime and hanged. With time on his hands and his grief still raw, Chris welcomes a distraction and finds it in trying to unravel the history of the Foxes. He begins frequenting local pubs where he can find patrons old enough to remember the trial. From them he learns that Grace had a lover much younger than herself and that the affair provided the prosecution with a motive for murder. He also learns that her attorney presented an anemic defense and that Grace seemed resigned to her fate throughout the trial. When he discovers Graces wartime journals written when she was a battlefield nurse during World War II, his interest morphs into obsession. The journals reveal a brave, heroic young woman so compassionate toward her patients that she could not possibly have taken a life. To that end, he sets out to prove her innocence, an objective that takes him to Paris and Cape Town. This is a dark and twisty novel that will thwart your attempt to solve the mystery at every turn. A fine read. Recommended. Dark, twisty novel is recommended B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Fundraising barbecue for Wagoner A fundraising barbecue for School Superintendent candidate Wally Wagoner will take place on Saturday, April 28, at Abshier Blueberry Farm, 3960 S.E. 115th St., Belleview, from 4 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $50.

Havenlea Dog Training Centre announced that it will be offering training in agility and flyball beginning March 15. Agility is a timed obstacle course for dogs which includes a dog walk, A-frame, seesaw, weave poles, tunnels and jumps. The dogs handler directs him through the course. Flyball is a fast-paced relay race. The dog must jump four hurdles, hit a box (which launches a ball), then catch and retrieve the ball back over the jumps where his teammate waits. Both of these exciting dog sports may be played for competition, or just for fun. Havenlea Dog Training Centre also offers the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program, basic obedience and manners training, behavior modification, AKC Canine Good Citizen training and Testing, and Competition Obedience-Rally training. Group classes, private instruction, and board and train are available. For more information, please visit www.havenleadogtraining.com. or contact Georgia A.

He further stated, As county commissioner, I will work to encourage job growth here in Marion County by working to remove governmental road blocks such as heavy taxation and unnecessary regulation. It is not the government that best creates jobs it is the private sector. In addition, we need to support the services here in Marion County that help make this the best place in the world to live. We need to support our hospitals, fire and rescue workers, police and sheriff, and county staff. Moore has been in the finance field for the past 14 years. He has a Bachelors Degree in Business along with a Master of Divinity from Luther Rice University. He is also scheduled to complete a Masters Degree in Leadership from Luther Rice University in May of this year. He and his wife Loida have a one son who attends a local, public elementary school in Marion County. He and his family are active members of Trinity Baptist Church. MOORE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 ment district, then the taxpayers gave it to them. Theyll just be giving you your money back. McClain vigorously defended the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Im afraid the citizens are in trouble. In the revolution we were an ocean away from the tyrant, and he added that it was not that way in America. A lot of people dont understand why its so important. McClain said it was important to have a congressman from Marion County for the majority of local citizens. He pointed out that a legislator out of Hernando County would more than likely be our sitting congressman. If we had a strong congressman from Marion County, the difference that it would make for you is tremendous. We have to have a voice in Washington. We have to have people who will go fight for us.

The winning teams were: Dougherty/Collins, Albright/Cunningham, Salberg/Connelly, Kollar/Terry, Gray/Start, Szabo/Simnowitz, ONeill/Valois, Gildea/Madill, and Aubrey/Paller. After chairman Terry handed out the awards lunch was served by the Royal Oaks Dining staff. As usual, it was outstanding, and a fitting way to end the tournament.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 BY MELANIE VITTITOW Special to the Citizen First, we would like to thank everyone who called about Bud, who did find a very good home. Some of the people asked to be placed on our waiting list so they can be called when we get another dog for adoption. What we really need are people who will foster a dog or cat until we can find him a forever home. We do not have a shelter, so fosters are vital to our operation. Sometimes the animal can be kept at their current home until a new owner is found, but often, we need to take one immediately and cant do that if we have no one to take it. If you enjoy pets, but dont want the permanent responsibility of pet ownership, fostering is perfect for you. Please call 352-362-0985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. While we are on the subject of fostering, we still have two cats to find homes for. They have been shown here before but Im including another picture. Kitten (the Multi) is 3 and Pumpkin (the black one) is 7. They have a nice large cat room to stay in but they are both loving cats and miss having someone to cuddle with. If you are considering a cat for a pet and dont want to cope with the energy of a kitten, these girls may be just right. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to schedule a meeting. And while we are discussing cats, let me share some advice I read from the Humane Society. Besides cuddling and lying in the sun, cats need to play. Indoor cats, especially, get bored with nothing to do. They can invent their own games if you have provided an assortment of cat toys, but its even better if you share the fun. Here are a few Dos and Donts of cat play. Do let the cat capture the prey many times during the play session. Especially with those bird toys, let the bird land so it can be stalked. The cat will get frustrated and just quit if it cant succeed occasionally. Dont jerk the toy out of the cats mouth or paws. It may cause injury Bud finds a very good home Kitten and Pumpkin.

BY JIM CLARK Editor It was supposed to be a District 3 County Commission candidate debate, but since one of two hopefuls didnt attend, Stan McClain had to answer all the questions himself. The Tea Party Solutions meeting Monday night featured McClain, the Republican incumbent who is being opposed by Democrat Patricia Reed, who was invited but did not attend. In his opening remarks, McClain commented, The oppression from the top is unbelievable. It was become painful to see how many rules and regulations are pushed down to us. McClain noted that government at the local level is very important, and we have to continue to say no. With the countys large population, McClain noted, I probably face more voters (than state representatives). He drew a reaction from the crowd when he said he and his wife had 11 children and four grandchildren. He praised earlier commissions for their fiscal responsibility, and said, Were reaping some of the benefits now. As a result, he said, he didnt have a sky is falling mentality. He said he stands on his record, a conservative record, and added, Weve taken a view that our government needs to be smaller. He said that he continues to look for ways for the private sector to take over some responsibilities. Asked about impact fees and the countys moratorium, he said that eliminating them was fine with me. McClain said he didnt know if the decision has spurred growth, and as for the loss of funds, noted the government didnt take money out of someones pocket. Asked about the springs protection ordinance, he noted, The more I looked at it, the more I realized it was not the right thing to do for Marion County. I do see the encroachment of government. He was questioned about the proposed tech development at Interstate 75 and County Road 318 north of Ocala, and defended the property owner, saying that he was a strong proponent for property rights and that someone had made an investment in the property. He said he could support the development if it could pay for itself. Speaking about the Munroe Regional Medical Center trustees, he indicated he felt the hospital needed to either be sold or leased, and said there were seven proposals on the table. As far as a hospital tax, he said that the people elected me to represent you, so you wont be bombarded by proposals to vote on. But he said there was another side. Sometimes I get a little ticked off. Just send it to a referendum and let the people vote it down, then were done with it. We dont need more taxes in Marion County. About grants and handouts, he said, There is no free money. He pointed out that if the money is coming from the state, or federal government, or water managePHOTO BY JIM CLARKCounty Commissioner Stan McClain speaks during his debate. Debate goes on, with just one candidate An incident on a school bus in the Southwest area has resulted in the arrest of a student of Kingsbury Academy. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the incident started as the bus was westbound on State Road 200 near 103rd Street Road. The female juvenile, age 13, attacked other students, and bit the bus driver after he stopped the bus and he and an aide tried to subdue the student. One student was punched in the face, another in the mouth. The girl said she punched one boy because he called her gay and another because he said something about her mother. She also resisted arrest by battling the deputy. After she was placed in the patrol car, she kicked the door windows several time. She was taken to the county jail, where she was accused of battery on a school official, simple battery, disruption of a school function and resisting without violence. It was the second school bus attack in recent weeks. Earlier, a Liberty Middle School girl was attacked by a gang of girls on a school bus. That case is proceeding through the court system.

The Florida House of Representatives has passed CS/CS/HB 681 Interlock Ignition Devices Ordered for Probation for DUI sponsored by Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala). This bill unanimously passed all three committees of reference on its way to the Session floor. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, there were 10,228 alcohol-impaired traffic fatalities in 2010 which represents 31 percentof all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2000 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates alcohol-related crashes in the United States cost the public $114.3 billion. The bill provides additional accountability for DUI offenders by ordering the installation of an interlock ignition device for at least three continuous months after their first offense, six continuous months after their second offense within five years, and 12 continuous months after their third offense within 10 years on all vehicles that are individually or jointly leased or owned and routinely operated by the defendant. We dont need more people in jail, we need them to stop drinking and driving, said Baxley. Law would target DUI offenders David Moore has formally announced his candidacy for County Commission District 1 seat. Moore, a Republican, is challenging incumbent Mike Amsden. In his announcement, Moore described his campaign for office and his vision to see a return to government that is "of, by, and for 'We the People." "I am one of you. One of 'We the People," said Moore. "I believe that my life experiences, professional expertise, abilities, skills, consistent and principled philosophy, and understanding of the issues uniquely qualify me to be an authentic representative of all the people of Marion County and positions me as the best candidate for the Marion County Commission. We need new, fresh, bold, and Moore to run against Amsden for commission PLEASESEEMOORE PAGE3 Wagoner wins straw pollOne week after last weeks debate, members of Tea Party Solutions were asked to vote in a straw poll for school superintendent between George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner. Results were announced at this weeks meeting: Wagoner 53 votes, Tomyn 12 votes, and three voted for neither one. to the cat or break the toy. Lastly, dont let the cat use your hands or feet as prey. What may be cute if a kitten does it, might cause significant damage from an adult cat. The Shelter dog that we are highlighting this month is a special needs pup who will need a special parent. Eight week old Clawrissa, a rescue from a cruelty case, was born with front claws instead of paws. She only uses her left front foot for balance. Shes a Dachshund-Chihuahua mix who only weighs about 2 pounds right now and will stay small. She will need lots of patience in housetraining (puppy pads usually work well) and will need a quiet household with someone who is home a lot (all you retired folks qualify). She may eventually need surgery. She loves cuddles and car rides. If you think you have what it takes (time, patience, love, and money, not necessarily in that order) to give this little one a good life, call the Animal Center at 352-671-8700 and mention her ID # A064610. If you want to know more about the SPCA or want to come to our meeting, please call 352-362-0985. We need to let the front gate know so they will let you in to the OTOW community where we meet.
