The annual OCala event will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. There will be plenty of entertainment, including Irish dancers, and various games, food and drink. Its the drink part that has officials warning you not to drink too much and then try to drive home. Law enforcement will be watching for you, and a DUI stop could spoil your whole day. Although some things will be for sale, just to attend and enjoy the entertainment is free.

According to Marion County jail records, Kadrian L. Clayton, 19, faces various charges after being apprehended by city officers following a short chase. He had allegedly been caught in the act of taking a flat screen television in the northeast section of Ocala. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Clayton was linked to a front door being kicked in and a flat screen TV being taken in Pine Run. On March 9, someone reported that a home on Southwest 103rd Lane was entered and that a flat screen television and a TV game had been taken after the front door of the house was kicked in. The homeowner had gone out for a couple of hours and had locked the house with the door knob lock. After developing information, deputies arrested Clayton in the jail where he was already being held on the city charges. He faces the following charges: armed burglary of a dwelling, unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling, unarmed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, two charges of grand theft, resisting without violence, driving while license knowingly suspended or revoked, reckless driving, and damage to property/criminal mischief (the flat screen TV in the city burglary was broken). His total bond is $66,000.

Snapp during the Health and Wellness Expo last Saturday at the Paddock Mall in Ocala. A suspected drug kingpin faces 67 charges and bond of more than $5 million after his arrest this week. On Monday and Tuesday, March 12 and 13, the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team (UDEST), along with assistance from the Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team (MADET), Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Fifth Judicial Circuit of the State Attorneys Office, collectively combined efforts for a county/city roundup of an investigation taking 11 months to culminate. The operation called Blue Forest refers to a large pill trafficking organization located in the area of the Ocala National Forest, and the street name blue which is the Oxycodone pill, which typically sells for $ 15 to $ 25 a pill. For nearly 11 months, agents identified numerous subjects selling and buying prescription narcotics. Through several investigative techniques agents were allegedly able to identify Eugene Bubba Ryals as the mastermind of a very well organized and systematic pharmaceutical drug trafficking organization operating within Marion County. Sheriffs officials say Ryals had an elaborate organization to include a runner, broker and mid-level organizer which is commonly referred to as a sponsor. During the investigation, agents were able to infiltrate the inner workings of the organization which led to Bond more than $5 million for alleged sale of pills Ryals PLEASESEEPILLS PAGE3 United Way of Marion County continues to offer free income tax preparation through a variety of VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) locations through Tuesday, April 17.

Pine Run Knit and Crochet group This group took on the project to make a donation and we chose The Centers which was making items for children within our community. The Centers is a community based Care Program for mostly court ordered protective supervision of children and families in our community that has come to their attention through abuse reports. What we made were: scarfs, hats, mittens, baby afghans, baby set (booties, hats, jackets & blanket), lap robes, sweaters, and afghans for children from newborn to 17 years of age. Our Ladies got together and made 267 items (including sets 337 pieces) and we delivered them on March 6. It is our hope that what we accomplished will help in some way help the children and families in our community. Our next project will be for the Salvation Army with what ever our fingers decide to do! In the photo is Pat Brady, Vivian Stevens, Del Vieria, Karen Bowen, Annette King, Lynda Altman, Del Wilson, Esther Reinblatt, Lucile Jones, not shown is Helen Claiborne & Jane Allen. Submitted By Karen Bowen is always a good thing and that is the purpose of this weekly column. This weeks person in the Spotlight is Linda Sisto. Linda was born in Needham, Massachusetts, and graduated from the Roslindale High School. She worked as an executive secretary for the John Hancock Insurance Company and Built Rite Homes Corp. in her home state. Her brother Tony Sisto stayed in Dorchester, Massachusetts, when Linda and her Mom, Ann, moved down to Cherrywood in 2004. Unfortunately, last July 23, Ann passed away which was a huge loss to Linda. Having been involved with the Ladies Luncheon, Color Guard and head of the Ladies Social Committee, Linda then turned her attention to music. Linda is the director of our own Cherrywood Songbirds and has been since 2010. Shes a vibrant person with extensive experience in music. She began her music career as an alto in the local church choir. Shortly after her arrival at Cherrywood, Linda paired up with Peter Rockfeld. The duo played at numerous and diverse places like the Mason Jar; Pronto Pizza, various assisted living facilities and for special occasions. While Linda sang alto up north, when she moved to Florida and joined the Queen of Peace Choir, they placed her in the soprano section where shes worked her way up to First Soprano. Singing has always been a part of her life and she enjoys it immensely. Linda loves working with all the members of the Songbirds. The most satisfying part of her work is when she sees people struggle with a piece of music and then hit the notes. All of the individual parts blend together in four part harmony; it almost brings a tear to her eye. She loves the directing aspect of her labor because it allows her to challenge and teach others to create beautiful music. Under her direction, the Songbirds have become well known in Marion County. In keeping with her spirit of community service, the Songbirds travel to various assisted living locations including The Bridge; Quiet Oaks and Hampton Manor. In addition, they entertain at such places as Pine Run and On Top of the World, where they sing for the Italian Club and the New England Club. Of all the places they go, Linda finds their fundraising concert at Joy Lutheran Church the most rewarding. The money from th annual event goes to purchase shoes for needy children. Questioned about the frustrations involved with directing the group Linda smiled and answered, When people dont show up for practice. When asked about the most satisfying part of directing the Songbirds she beamed and answered, Getting called back to places and getting invited to new places. It means our performances were well received! The Songbirds practice every Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse, so if you have any desire to sing, please show up. You dont have to read music; all you need is the desire to make beautiful music with your friends and neighbors. Thanks to Linda Sisto, it will come together in perfect harmony.

T omorrow is St. Patricks Day, a holiday first celebrated in 1737 by Irish immigrants in Boston. Now almost everyone celebrates by wearing green, being honorary Irish, drinking green beer, and eating corned beef and cabbage. The Irish can be proud; going green the year around has now become a worldwide objective. In honor of St. Patty, Pun Alley gets painted green and has some Irish fun. Taken to the cleanersPatrick OReilly was lucky. Since the day he had found a four-leaf clover, everything good seemed to come his way. He had married a wonderful woman and later, was the father of beautiful twins. At work he had been promoted and had received a substantial raise. Patty, certain his good fortune was due to his four-leaf clover, always carried the clover in his suit pocket. One morning, Patty searched and could not find the clover. He recalled it was in his suit that he had left at the cleaners. When he picked it up, the clover was still in one piece but flattened from the dry cleaning. After that Pattys fortunes changed. The twins developed measles when his boss and the bosss wife visited for dinner. He had a flat tire on his way to an important meeting and lost his job. So many bad things happened to him, he visited the parish priest to ask for advice. This certainly was to be expected, the priest said. You should have known. One should never press ones luck. HangoverTwo Irish men, Paddy and Murphy were walking down a country road, when they observed a man hanging over a bridge with another mans legs in his grasp. The other man shouted up now, now to his friend who promptly pulled him up. To Paddy and Murphys astonishment the man had a large fish in his arms. Paddy and Murphy decided to give this plan a try, so they walked on to the next bridge where Paddy dangled Murphy over the bridge. After five minutes Murphy started to scream up, Paddy, Paddy, pull me up. Paddy asked, Have you got a fish? No, theres a bloody train coming. CrosswayGallagher was in Boston and waiting patiently while watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the traffic and shouted, Okay pedestrians. Then he allowed the traffic to pass. He did this several times, and Gallagher was still standing on the sidewalk. After the cop shouted Pedestrians for the tenth time, Gallagher approached him and said, Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across? Leprechaun talesHey, Paudge, do I hear you spitting in the vase on the mantelpiece? No, Brigid, but Im getting closer all the time. Ma, theres a strange man at the door. Has he got a bill? No, Ma, just an ordinary nose. Murphy, why dont you give up the drinking, smoking and carousing? said Mrs. OLeary Its too late, replied Murphy. Its never too late, assured the virtuous Mrs. OLeary. Well, theres no rush then, smiled Murphy. Mrs. OShaughnessy, could you give me anything for a home for alcoholics? Come back at teatime. My husband will be in then. Darragh was boasting of his grandfather, He lived for 94 years and never once used glasses. Phelim replied, I always said it was healthier to drink from the bottle. Two Irishmen, Pat and Murphy, saw a sign saying Tree Fellers wanted. Murphy said to Pat, said, If only Seamus had been with us wed have got that job. Dig it An aging man lived alone in Ireland. His only son was in prison, and he didnt know anyone who would spade up his potato garden. The old man wrote to his son about it, and received this reply, For heavens sake, dont dig up that garden, thats where I buried the guns! Soon a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, but didnt find any guns. Confused, the man wrote to his son telling him what happened and asking him what to do next. His sons reply was, Just plant your potatoes. Hows That?A Belfast newspaper once reported the launching of an aircraft carrier and reported, The Duchess smashed the bottle against the bow and with the applause of the crowd she slid on her greasy bottom into the sea.

soon to become a nightmare. At his side is Laurie, the woman he adores, and rounding out the family is 14-year-old Jacob, their only child. When teenager Ben Rifkin is found stabbed to death in a park area the high-school kids travel through on their way to class, Andy springs into action, ignoring the fact that Ben is Jacobs classmate. To Andy theres no conflict of interest, but others see it differently. In spite of his protests Andy is taken off the case, which is turned over to his arch rival. Andy is sure a local pedophile is the culprit but other investigators are thinking its one of Bens classmates. Things heat up when Andy finds a lethal-looking knife in Jacobs room, one he didnt know his son owned. Thinking only that Jacob could be falsely accused of the crime, the concerned father throws the knife away. He thinks no more of it until troubling doubts prompt him to check out Jacobs Facebook wall where classmates have written, Jake, everyone knows you did it. Eventually Jacob is arrested and a family begins to come apart in Landays agonizing portrait. As the trial date nears a bad situation is further complicated by Andys reluctant confession to the defenses psychiatrist that both his father and grandfather were murderers and their choice of weapon was a knife. There follows layer after nuanced layer of revelation and legal maneuvering. The ending is so unpredictable that had this been a movie no one would be seated during the last 20 minutes. Highly recommended. Photo Club formingThree people have expressed an interest in learning all aspects of photography through a Cherrywood Photo Club.

A pleasant surprise awaits you by weeks end.

Check things out for yourself. C AN C E R (J une 21 to J uly 22) A personal relationship that seems to be going nowhere could be restarted once you know why it stalled. An honest discussion could result in some surprising revelations. L E O (J uly 23 to A ug 22) That unexpected attack of self-doubt could be a way of warning yourself to go slow before making a careerchanging decision. Take more time to do a closer study of the facts. V I R G O (A ug 23 to Sept 22) A workplace problem needs your attention, now, before it deteriorates to a point beyond repair. A trusted third party could be helpful in closing the gaps that have opened. L IB R A ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) A recent family situation could give rise to a new problem. Keep an open mind and avoid making judgments about anyones motives until all the facts are in.

Marion County Quilt On DisplayThe Oak Run Quilters Marion County quilt will be on display at the Palm Grove auditorium March 22-25 thanks to the Little Theater Group. For theater goers the quilt will be on display during all performances of Sex, Please, Were Sixty. For those who are not able to attend the play you may drop by the Palm Grove facility from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on March 22, 23, and 24 and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. The members of the Quilt Club designed and created this large wall-hanging. It is not for sale, but is a traveling exhibit reflecting not only our love of quilting, but of many of the fun and interesting sites within Marion County. Each block that surrounds the center map was made by individual members of the club to show their favorite place within the county we call home. Then members took needle in hand to finish quilting and to bind the project. There were a variety of quilting techniques used to make the quilt including thread painting, appliqu, piecing, hand quilting, and machine quilting. Many hands, as well as many hours, were spent from start to finish on this project. Our thanks to the Little Theater Group for allowing us to show off our work during their play.

A t its March 5 meeting, Little Theatre members discussed the plight of the people in the Midwest who are suffering due to the recent tornadoes. Many lost their loved ones, others saw the destruction of their homes and businesses. We know something of their plight because of hurricanes in our state. It was unanimously decided that Little Theatre would help these suffering souls by donating the proceeds of one of our show nights for Sex Please Were Sixty to the American Red Cross tornado relief. We all felt thankful for our own safety and flushed with pride that our theatre group could offer assistance. The play is nearing the home stretch, the cast is being fine tuned by the directors and this promises to be one of the warmest and funniest plays weve ever been privileged to bring to our Oak Run audiences. The cut off for selling tickets for the dinner theatre was March 12 so we could give Royal Oaks dining staff a head count for dinners. Tickets to the other three shows (Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 25, at 3 p.m.) are still available. If you cannot make one of the public ticket sales, please call Linda Noel at 352-8739908. Any remaining reserved or general admission tickets will be on sale at the door prior to each of the shows. If history repeats itself, a complete sell out of tickets on Sunday is a possibility. It seems that people attending previous performances tell their friends and neighbors how much they enjoyed the show and it inspires people to attend the final performance. We have more than once had to transport extra chairs from the Orchid Club to Palm Grove to accommodate this last minute surge. Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the Donna Boltons Showcase of Stars from May, 2011. It will air following FYI daily from March 16 to March 23.

For further information please contact Friday, March 16, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com S ocial Security is no longer the threatening third rail of American politics. Until the reforms of the Greenspan Commission in 1983, politicians did not dare fiddle with Social Security for fear of being electrocuted by voters at the next election. Based on the Commissions recommendations, Congress raised the retirement age and extended the solvency of Social Security for 75 years to 2058. Unfortunately theyve been very short years. More reform is on the horizon, and Social Security has few champions. In 2010, during a rare moment of harmony, Democrats and Republicans agreed to extend the politically popular payroll tax cuts put in place by generous George Bush, who financed two wars and wild Congressional spending with checks from China. More recently, President Obama insisted on an extension of the extension. Some key Democrats balked at extending a reduction which is adding $89 billion to this years deficit. After lengthy dissension between and among Republicans and Democrats, the President was granted a vote-buying extension of the FICA tax holiday to the end of 2012, which occurs right after the November election. Whats next? Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, a Democrat and one of the honorable members of Congress, was opposed to the tax holiday extension for the right reason. He said Make no mistake; this is the beginning of the end of the sanctity of Social Security. The very real risk is that Social Security will become just another program to be paid for with deficit spending, and then in the future, perhaps raided to reduce the deficit. Republicans may not be known as Social Security cheerleaders, but they knew when the third rail needed repairs. It was President Reagan who appointed the Greenspan Social Security Reform Commission. Unfortunately the Commissions reforms were seriously negated by the irresponsible spending of George Bush and his no-veto Congress. As for Democrats, their lengthy reputation as supporters of Social Security is fading. Mr. Obama and key members of his administration believe too much federal support goes to senior citizens, and too little to social programs they favor, such as Obamacare and food stamps. Mr. Obamas 2010 Commission on Fiscal Responsibility (debt and deficit), co-chaired by Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, included more than a few members who were in favor of privatizing Social Security. It was of no consequence, because the President ignored the Commissions work and report. It was also little noticed that during last years debt and deficit wrestling match between Congress and the White House, President Obama suggested a plan for major changes and spending reductions to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for new tax revenues. That a Democrat president would suggest such changes to congressional Democrats is a sign of things to come, as suggested by Senator Harkin. Seniors and aging boomers would be well advised to take a cue from the Tea Partys emphasis on Congress in the 2008 election. It matters more who serves in the House and Senate than who may sit in the Oval Office for the next four years. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 16, 2012 F ishing is not my favorite activity actually, Ive only been fishing once in my life, as a boy, caught some little fish up at Greenwood Lake, New York, watched him squirm, told my father to put him back in the water so he wouldnt suffer, and never touched a rod and reel again. But I once had a fisherman describe the feeling the first time he went out in season, in the early morning on a peaceful lake, with nothing to concentrate on, except what he was doing. He said it was pure relaxation. I had that feeling last week. It came on Monday evening when the New York Mets Dillon Gee threw the first pitch of the spring training season. Baseball is back. All is right with the world. I leaned back in my recliner, a glass of iced tea (decaf) on the table by my side, and it felt so right. As you may gather, Im a baseball nut. Unlike a lot of baseball fans, I am just as comfortable watching a Little League game (I used to coach) as a Major League game. Ive been to Williamsport, to Little Leagues World Series, and Ive been to numerous Major League games. Thats all great, but I am a diehard Mets fan. They started playing 50 years ago, in the 1962 season, and last year they looked as if they hadnt learned much in those 50 years. They were, however, missing their ace pitcher last season, Johan Santana, who threw two scoreless innings in the second game of the spring last week, leading to wild speculation about the chances this year. Mets fans are used to the saying, Wait til next year! I dont care. I just enjoy sitting back, rooting for my team, from the comfort of my living room. My wife missed this spring opener because she is out of town. It has taken more than 48 years together, but Im finally getting her converted a little. She can recognize Jose Reyes (now a Marlin) and David Wright. She knows the names of some of the others, including Santana. I even coerced her, one year, to name our new cat Mookie, after Mookie Wilson, who was a star fielder and later a first base coach for the Mets. My favorite baseball movie is Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. There are a couple of lines in that movie that always stick with me. One is uttered by Costner, as he looks over the field he has built, and says, Its perfect. The other is the dialogue by Jones, trying to talk Costner out of selling his farm. He describes the sport this way: The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. Its been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. That, in a nutshell, is why I like baseball. Thats why every year, about this time, I get that relaxed, contented feeling. All of you can have your NBA playoffs and Stanley Cup playoffs. March Madness ends about the time the regular baseball season starts. Ill take the baseball season over all of those other sports. So if you need to contact me after April 1, consult the baseball schedule first and see what time the Mets are playing. If you call during those hours, youll probably have to leave a message. But dont worry. Ill get back to you probably sometime in October.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

N ow that Undersheriff Dan Kuhn has been cleared to run for sheriff without quitting his job by the Office of Special Counsel, there remains one big question which has gone unanswered. Who complained? Someone had to alert the federal government about the possibility of a conflict with the Hatch Act, although that conflict was so remote that it was ultimately dismissed by the Counsel. Forgetting the discussion of whether the Hatch Act is effective in the current political scene, we have to wonder who tried to blow the whistle on Kuhn. Unfortunately, were probably going to get little help from the feds, who say that these complaints are privileged and the person who filed them cant be identified. Why? This is another example of those who work in the federal government failing to realize that they work for us, for we the people. We deserve to know whether this was a political dirty trick by a candidate, or whether it was some overzealous citizen who is against Kuhns candidacy. His opponents, if they didnt file the complaint, have to come out and say so vehemently. That might help clear the air. But it wont change the fact that the federal government, for a while, looked as if it would interfere in a local election, and wont tell us why. Hopefully, someone who has the ability to do so will file with the courts to get a release of the complaint. Until then, were in the dark, which is where our federal government likes to keep us. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No open government on the part of the Feds Boys of summer, though its still winter Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The power of the third rail has fizzled Invisible, irrelevantI read an article in the Tampa Bay Times dated March 8 where the Democrats in the Florida House and Senate feel that they are invisible and irrelevant. While this is true they must realize that the general electorate does not read or understand politics especially Florida politics where the minority rules. While the Democrats hold the majority number of voters in their party, the Republican and Independents understand how to vote and make their votes count. I agree that recently the minority Democratic party in the House and Senate have stopped many of the harmful bills introduced by the Republicans but the public is unaware of their actions. There is very little publicity that is allowed outside of Tallahassee that is not beneficial to the Republican Party, and if a blurb does escape from time to time the Democrat electorate does not understand what is being done to them. The Democratic Party in Florida does not understand that this is their state also and if you want something you must fight for it. The Democratic Party does not know how to organize a grass roots campaign to represent the people and are afraid to fight where they might possibly lose an election. By not fighting, you have already lost! Jerry Segovis Ocala Peaceful vs. violentAnother political perspective: Who are the good guys, and who are the bad guys? What criteria can we use? How about: Peaceful vs violent? Who wants to resolve issues peacefully, and who wants chaos, revolution, turmoil, and blood? That seems a pretty good yardstick by which to measure politics. Dont you think? How many opt for peaceful? How many for Bloodshed? If it is to be your blood? Now, how many? This is the 21st century? Can we ever expect to see a day when the call for violent revolution will cease? Will this century be that time? Not when we are looming on the verge of another holocaust. Will humans ever be free from the scourge of Bloodlusters, or, will we be saddled with them forever? Do we have a choice? I think we do. We just have to smarten up.

Some abortion promoters even refer to sonogram as invasive and describe the procedure as physical rape of women. According to Random House Websters Unabridged dictionary, in order for sonogram to be invasive, it would require entry of a needle, catheter, or other instrument into a part of the body. Producing a visual image in a diagnostic ultrasound examination does not require such action; invasion is not necessary for a sonogram to be produced. However, promoters of abortion put that spin on the procedure in order to produce unnecessary aversion to the use of sonogram/ultrasound. Abortionists know that visual images of unborn children are strong deterrents to abortion. The Florida law requiring sonogram viewing to be offered to all clients before abortion truly makes it a womans choice. If the client does not choose to view the sonogram image of the baby, she may decline. Florida women paid for, but were denied important medical information before the July 2011 sonogram law was enacted. Sonograms have always been used by abortionists to establish gestation periods which they need to establish abortion costs. The costs of these sonograms are built into the total cost, but before the new Florida law was established, the abortionists withheld this additional medical information from the pregnant women. It is difficult to make a credible case for abortion, so the abortion promoters make feeble attempts to ridicule and offset the solid and sensible reasoning of the pro-life community. Such abortion advocates have no recourse other than to oppose reason with trivia unworthy of belief or confidence. Mabel Ryan President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 M y husband and I are history buffs. When the kids were small, we went to just about every fort on the East Coast. I remember my daughter pleading with us: Why cant we go to theme parks like the other families? I would just smile and hand her a guidebook for yet another historical site. Did it surprise me that my son minored in history in college? I still like visiting historical spots, Gettysburg always being a high point on my list. Here the Civil War is the whole town. On any given day, re-enactors can be seen parading down Steinwehr Avenue in period dress, ladies in hoop skirted dresses and picture hats, men with stovepipe hats, white shirts and grey pants. I only want to follow that crowd down the street brandishing a parasol and wide skirt that floats as you walk. The whole Civil War era has given me fuel for thought. What did the Jews do in the Civil War and what was the impact of the conflict on the small minority that numbered about 150,000 at the time? As with other events in history, both here and abroad, there were widespread events that did indeed shape the history of the Jews. The Civil War provided an opportunity for Jews to participate in the conflict as equal citizens, rising through the ranks to officer status. Few armies at the time allowed this. The war also was a time for Jews to identify with their neighbors, the Southern Jews with the South, the Northern Jews with the North. As such, they took on the views of the areas in which they lived. While today we think of Jews as being liberal and for civil rights, even in the North, the Jewish population was divided on the issue while in the South, there were some Jewish slave owners.

I was snuggling down in my easy chair with a riveting book in hand when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage shared with me an observation. I just was thinking, she began very seriously, that we have not taken a trip lately. We once went to Thailand for several weeks, which was wonderful. One of the delightful things of that trip was visiting the elephant ranch and riding the elephants. As we were in line to ride the elephants the person in charge took one look at me and said, No, no. He said something in some language I could not understand and then proceeded to pair my wife up with another woman and insisted I ride the elephant alone. From what I got out of his gestures and tone of voice was he thought I was too heavy to ride an elephant. Being compared with an elephant and being on the losing side of the comparison, is not something I enjoyed experiencing. I have been insulted quite a bit throughout my life, and this certainly was one of them. Being the congenial gentleman that I am, I submitted to his evaluation and rode the elephant by myself. I did a lot of bouncing, deliberately, on my elephant ride. I hope that elephant remembers me. We have had other trips and have enjoyed ourselves tremendously. But when she asked about the last trip we took, I could not bring into focus our last trip. Not world travelers, of course, but we do like to take little jaunts here and there just to get away from the rat race. To participate in the rat race I suppose you have to be a rat. It is good to get away from other rats and associate with rats you do not know. Nothing really came of my wifes observation. She just mentioned it, then the subject was dropped, and we went on to what we were doing. Several days later I was about to take the trip of my life. I bought some ink cartridges for my printer and happened to buy the wrong kind. The way the world operates today is that you cannot make a mistake and then take the product back and exchange it for the right one. The only way I could get any satisfaction about this was to call the company and put in a request to have this ink exchanged for the right cartridge. I got the number and called the company. That was the beginning of my trip around the world. The first stage of this trip was punching in numbers. I am not sure of the purpose for punching in numbers in order to get to somebody that can help you. What happened to the good old days where you actually talked to a person you could understand what they were saying? For about 15 minutes, I punched in number after number after number. I thought for a moment that I was reading the book of Numbers in the Old Testament. I do not mind numbers when they add up. However, what I really do not like are arbitrary numbers that absolutely make no sense to me. Of course, many things do not make any sense to me. Finally, after punching numbers until my fingers began to bleed, I got an actual human voice. Ah, the great satisfaction of actually encountering a living, breathing human being on the telephone. I took a moment to enjoy the moment. It was not to last long. As I began listening to the voice on the other end of the phone, I became a little puzzled. I heard the voice, she came through loud and clear but I had no idea what she was saying. I said quite a few times when the conversation warranted, Huh. After a few minutes of this, I realized the person I was talking to was in the Philippines. How I got to the Philippines, I will never know. I am not saying that the young womans English was bad, just that my ears were not able to catch the nuances of her phrases. Not getting any satisfaction from this young woman in the Philippines, she transferred me to someone in India. I had just got accustomed, or so I thought, to the Filipino accent and now I was hearing someone talk to me from India with a completely different accent. I spent a few minutes in India and what we talked about I have no idea. I just wanted to exchange my ink cartridges for the correct ones. I am not sure what somebody in India has to do with my problem. Not getting any satisfaction from the chap in India, I was transferred to someone in Idaho. I wanted cartridges not potatoes. After some quasi-delightful minutes in Idaho, I came to the excruciating conclusion that it would be worth my while, not to mention the cash involved, to just forget the whole thing and throw those cartridges away and buy new ones. On my way to buy a new cartridge, I thought of a verse of Scripture. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known (1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV). I am looking forward to that final trip where I will see Him face to face, no misunderstanding then. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Confederacy was a Jew, Judah Benjamin, and is often referred to as The Brains of the Confederacy. Whether they fought for the North or the South, the Jews felt comfortable and accepted by their neighbors and so demonstrated their loyalty by fighting side by side with them. The War Between the States also afforded the Jews a chance to fight for their rights. As the blacks were slighted and segregated in the Second War, so too did the Jews confront prejudice. As the war began, the military chaplaincy was restricted to those of the Christian faith. This restricting legislation was overturned and Jewish chaplains joined the ranks alongside their Christian counterparts. And in December 1862, they demonstrated at the White House against General Grants notorious General Orders #11, expelling Jews as a class from his war zone. The order was rescinded but such an act was certainly a black mark against the general and the American military as a whole. It took a man, ironically named Abraham, to overturn this act and expose it for the anti-Semitism it espoused. President Lincoln, to his credit, overturned this order because he did not believe in condemning a whole group of people for a few sinners. And of course, Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, also repudiated anti-Semitism because of his close association with Judah Benjamin. An interesting footnote to Jewish involvement in the Civil War, is a cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. Called the Hebrew Confederate Cemetery, it is the only Jewish military one in the world outside of the State of Israel. Here lie the remains of Confederate soldiers denied burial in Confederate cemeteries because of their Jewish heritage. These soldiers were casualties of the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness. The bodies were buried on Shockroe Hill and after the War, the care of the graves was presided over by the Hebrew Ladies Memorial Association who erected an ornamental iron fence depicting muskets, crossed swords and a Confederate cap. In the 1930s, the crumbling grave stones were replaced by a bronze plaque that reads: To the glory of God and in memory of the Hebrew Confederate soldiers resting in this hallowed spot. Not all Jewish Confederate soldiers are buried in this spot; some have been interred in family plots. It would also seem plausible that like their Northern brethren, they would be buried in synagogue-sponsored plots. Congregation Beth Ahabah today maintains the cemetery. As for that hoop skirted dress I wanted, I have decided, in true Scarlett OHara style, to simply say: Fiddle Dee Dee! It just would have been a bit too cumbersome getting in and out of my Mazda!

The Dr. Dunn team is inching closer because they are starting to meld together again, but can it be too late? Maybe, but there are plenty of games left to play, and The Great Clips team could go into a slump. The Wiseway team has started to show some life with its two straight wins this past week. The team has been struggling all season, and two consecutive wins might be just what is needed. The Tee Pee Tire and Cebert Wealth teams continue to share fourth place, while Florida Eye is trying to get out of their slump. It may turn out to be a close run for the top if the Florida Eye and Dr. Dunn teams can muster up some energy and get over their erratic play. Ultimately, its now time to wait and see what will transpire with the teams.

The Dr. Dunn team is inching closer because they are starting to meld together again, but can it be too late? Maybe, but there are plenty of games left to play, and The Great Clips team could go into a slump. The Wiseway team has started to show some life with its two straight wins this past week. The team has been struggling all season, and two consecutive wins might be just what is needed. The Tee Pee Tire and Cebert Wealth teams continue to share fourth place, while Florida Eye is trying to get out of their slump. It may turn out to be a close run for the top if the Florida Eye and Dr. Dunn teams can muster up some energy and get over their erratic play. Ultimately, its now time to wait and see what will transpire with the teams.

Confederacy was a Jew, Judah Benjamin, and is often referred to as The Brains of the Confederacy. Whether they fought for the North or the South, the Jews felt comfortable and accepted by their neighbors and so demonstrated their loyalty by fighting side by side with them. The War Between the States also afforded the Jews a chance to fight for their rights. As the blacks were slighted and segregated in the Second War, so too did the Jews confront prejudice. As the war began, the military chaplaincy was restricted to those of the Christian faith. This restricting legislation was overturned and Jewish chaplains joined the ranks alongside their Christian counterparts. And in December 1862, they demonstrated at the White House against General Grants notorious General Orders #11, expelling Jews as a class from his war zone. The order was rescinded but such an act was certainly a black mark against the general and the American military as a whole. It took a man, ironically named Abraham, to overturn this act and expose it for the anti-Semitism it espoused. President Lincoln, to his credit, overturned this order because he did not believe in condemning a whole group of people for a few sinners. And of course, Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, also repudiated anti-Semitism because of his close association with Judah Benjamin. An interesting footnote to Jewish involvement in the Civil War, is a cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. Called the Hebrew Confederate Cemetery, it is the only Jewish military one in the world outside of the State of Israel. Here lie the remains of Confederate soldiers denied burial in Confederate cemeteries because of their Jewish heritage. These soldiers were casualties of the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness. The bodies were buried on Shockroe Hill and after the War, the care of the graves was presided over by the Hebrew Ladies Memorial Association who erected an ornamental iron fence depicting muskets, crossed swords and a Confederate cap. In the 1930s, the crumbling grave stones were replaced by a bronze plaque that reads: To the glory of God and in memory of the Hebrew Confederate soldiers resting in this hallowed spot. Not all Jewish Confederate soldiers are buried in this spot; some have been interred in family plots. It would also seem plausible that like their Northern brethren, they would be buried in synagogue-sponsored plots. Congregation Beth Ahabah today maintains the cemetery. As for that hoop skirted dress I wanted, I have decided, in true Scarlett OHara style, to simply say: Fiddle Dee Dee! It just would have been a bit too cumbersome getting in and out of my Mazda!

I just was thinking, she began very seriously, that we have not taken a trip lately. We once went to Thailand for several weeks, which was wonderful. One of the delightful things of that trip was visiting the elephant ranch and riding the elephants. As we were in line to ride the elephants the person in charge took one look at me and said, No, no. He said something in some language I could not understand and then proceeded to pair my wife up with another woman and insisted I ride the elephant alone. From what I got out of his gestures and tone of voice was he thought I was too heavy to ride an elephant. Being compared with an elephant and being on the losing side of the comparison, is not something I enjoyed experiencing. I have been insulted quite a bit throughout my life, and this certainly was one of them. Being the congenial gentleman that I am, I submitted to his evaluation and rode the elephant by myself. I did a lot of bouncing, deliberately, on my elephant ride. I hope that elephant remembers me. We have had other trips and have enjoyed ourselves tremendously. But when she asked about the last trip we took, I could not bring into focus our last trip. Not world travelers, of course, but we do like to take little jaunts here and there just to get away from the rat race. To participate in the rat race I suppose you have to be a rat. It is good to get away from other rats and associate with rats you do not know. Nothing really came of my wifes observation. She just mentioned it, then the subject was dropped, and we went on to what we were doing. Several days later I was about to take the trip of my life. I bought some ink cartridges for my printer and happened to buy the wrong kind. The way the world operates today is that you cannot make a mistake and then take the product back and exchange it for the right one. The only way I could get any satisfaction about this was to call the company and put in a request to have this ink exchanged for the right cartridge. I got the number and called the company. That was the beginning of my trip around the world. The first stage of this trip was punching in numbers. I am not sure of the purpose for punching in numbers in order to get to somebody that can help you. What happened to the good old days where you actually talked to a person you could understand what they were saying? For about 15 minutes, I punched in number after number after number. I thought for a moment that I was reading the book of Numbers in the Old Testament. I do not mind numbers when they add up. However, what I really do not like are arbitrary numbers that absolutely make no sense to me. Of course, many things do not make any sense to me. Finally, after punching numbers until my fingers began to bleed, I got an actual human voice. Ah, the great satisfaction of actually encountering a living, breathing human being on the telephone. I took a moment to enjoy the moment. It was not to last long. As I began listening to the voice on the other end of the phone, I became a little puzzled. I heard the voice, she came through loud and clear but I had no idea what she was saying. I said quite a few times when the conversation warranted, Huh. After a few minutes of this, I realized the person I was talking to was in the Philippines. How I got to the Philippines, I will never know. I am not saying that the young womans English was bad, just that my ears were not able to catch the nuances of her phrases. Not getting any satisfaction from this young woman in the Philippines, she transferred me to someone in India. I had just got accustomed, or so I thought, to the Filipino accent and now I was hearing someone talk to me from India with a completely different accent. I spent a few minutes in India and what we talked about I have no idea. I just wanted to exchange my ink cartridges for the correct ones. I am not sure what somebody in India has to do with my problem. Not getting any satisfaction from the chap in India, I was transferred to someone in Idaho. I wanted cartridges not potatoes. After some quasi-delightful minutes in Idaho, I came to the excruciating conclusion that it would be worth my while, not to mention the cash involved, to just forget the whole thing and throw those cartridges away and buy new ones. On my way to buy a new cartridge, I thought of a verse of Scripture. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known (1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV). I am looking forward to that final trip where I will see Him face to face, no misunderstanding then. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Some abortion promoters even refer to sonogram as invasive and describe the procedure as physical rape of women. According to Random House Websters Unabridged dictionary, in order for sonogram to be invasive, it would require entry of a needle, catheter, or other instrument into a part of the body. Producing a visual image in a diagnostic ultrasound examination does not require such action; invasion is not necessary for a sonogram to be produced. However, promoters of abortion put that spin on the procedure in order to produce unnecessary aversion to the use of sonogram/ultrasound. Abortionists know that visual images of unborn children are strong deterrents to abortion. The Florida law requiring sonogram viewing to be offered to all clients before abortion truly makes it a womans choice. If the client does not choose to view the sonogram image of the baby, she may decline. Florida women paid for, but were denied important medical information before the July 2011 sonogram law was enacted. Sonograms have always been used by abortionists to establish gestation periods which they need to establish abortion costs. The costs of these sonograms are built into the total cost, but before the new Florida law was established, the abortionists withheld this additional medical information from the pregnant women. It is difficult to make a credible case for abortion, so the abortion promoters make feeble attempts to ridicule and offset the solid and sensible reasoning of the pro-life community. Such abortion advocates have no recourse other than to oppose reason with trivia unworthy of belief or confidence. Mabel Ryan President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 M y husband and I are history buffs. When the kids were small, we went to just about every fort on the East Coast. I remember my daughter pleading with us: Why cant we go to theme parks like the other families? I would just smile and hand her a guidebook for yet another historical site. Did it surprise me that my son minored in history in college? I still like visiting historical spots, Gettysburg always being a high point on my list. Here the Civil War is the whole town. On any given day, re-enactors can be seen parading down Steinwehr Avenue in period dress, ladies in hoop skirted dresses and picture hats, men with stovepipe hats, white shirts and grey pants. I only want to follow that crowd down the street brandishing a parasol and wide skirt that floats as you walk. The whole Civil War era has given me fuel for thought. What did the Jews do in the Civil War and what was the impact of the conflict on the small minority that numbered about 150,000 at the time? As with other events in history, both here and abroad, there were widespread events that did indeed shape the history of the Jews. The Civil War provided an opportunity for Jews to participate in the conflict as equal citizens, rising through the ranks to officer status. Few armies at the time allowed this. The war also was a time for Jews to identify with their neighbors, the Southern Jews with the South, the Northern Jews with the North. As such, they took on the views of the areas in which they lived. While today we think of Jews as being liberal and for civil rights, even in the North, the Jewish population was divided on the issue while in the South, there were some Jewish slave owners.

A t its March 5 meeting, Little Theatre members discussed the plight of the people in the Midwest who are suffering due to the recent tornadoes. Many lost their loved ones, others saw the destruction of their homes and businesses. We know something of their plight because of hurricanes in our state. It was unanimously decided that Little Theatre would help these suffering souls by donating the proceeds of one of our show nights for Sex Please Were Sixty to the American Red Cross tornado relief. We all felt thankful for our own safety and flushed with pride that our theatre group could offer assistance. The play is nearing the home stretch, the cast is being fine tuned by the directors and this promises to be one of the warmest and funniest plays weve ever been privileged to bring to our Oak Run audiences. The cut off for selling tickets for the dinner theatre was March 12 so we could give Royal Oaks dining staff a head count for dinners. Tickets to the other three shows (Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 25, at 3 p.m.) are still available. If you cannot make one of the public ticket sales, please call Linda Noel at 352-8739908. Any remaining reserved or general admission tickets will be on sale at the door prior to each of the shows. If history repeats itself, a complete sell out of tickets on Sunday is a possibility. It seems that people attending previous performances tell their friends and neighbors how much they enjoyed the show and it inspires people to attend the final performance. We have more than once had to transport extra chairs from the Orchid Club to Palm Grove to accommodate this last minute surge.

For further information please contact Friday, March 16, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com S ocial Security is no longer the threatening third rail of American politics. Until the reforms of the Greenspan Commission in 1983, politicians did not dare fiddle with Social Security for fear of being electrocuted by voters at the next election. Based on the Commissions recommendations, Congress raised the retirement age and extended the solvency of Social Security for 75 years to 2058. Unfortunately theyve been very short years. More reform is on the horizon, and Social Security has few champions. In 2010, during a rare moment of harmony, Democrats and Republicans agreed to extend the politically popular payroll tax cuts put in place by generous George Bush, who financed two wars and wild Congressional spending with checks from China. More recently, President Obama insisted on an extension of the extension. Some key Democrats balked at extending a reduction which is adding $89 billion to this years deficit. After lengthy dissension between and among Republicans and Democrats, the President was granted a vote-buying extension of the FICA tax holiday to the end of 2012, which occurs right after the November election. Whats next? Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, a Democrat and one of the honorable members of Congress, was opposed to the tax holiday extension for the right reason. He said Make no mistake; this is the beginning of the end of the sanctity of Social Security. The very real risk is that Social Security will become just another program to be paid for with deficit spending, and then in the future, perhaps raided to reduce the deficit. Republicans may not be known as Social Security cheerleaders, but they knew when the third rail needed repairs. It was President Reagan who appointed the Greenspan Social Security Reform Commission. Unfortunately the Commissions reforms were seriously negated by the irresponsible spending of George Bush and his no-veto Congress. As for Democrats, their lengthy reputation as supporters of Social Security is fading. Mr. Obama and key members of his administration believe too much federal support goes to senior citizens, and too little to social programs they favor, such as Obamacare and food stamps. Mr. Obamas 2010 Commission on Fiscal Responsibility (debt and deficit), co-chaired by Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, included more than a few members who were in favor of privatizing Social Security. It was of no consequence, because the President ignored the Commissions work and report. It was also little noticed that during last years debt and deficit wrestling match between Congress and the White House, President Obama suggested a plan for major changes and spending reductions to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for new tax revenues. That a Democrat president would suggest such changes to congressional Democrats is a sign of things to come, as suggested by Senator Harkin. Seniors and aging boomers would be well advised to take a cue from the Tea Partys emphasis on Congress in the 2008 election. It matters more who serves in the House and Senate than who may sit in the Oval Office for the next four years. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 16, 2012 F ishing is not my favorite activity actually, Ive only been fishing once in my life, as a boy, caught some little fish up at Greenwood Lake, New York, watched him squirm, told my father to put him back in the water so he wouldnt suffer, and never touched a rod and reel again. But I once had a fisherman describe the feeling the first time he went out in season, in the early morning on a peaceful lake, with nothing to concentrate on, except what he was doing. He said it was pure relaxation. I had that feeling last week. It came on Monday evening when the New York Mets Dillon Gee threw the first pitch of the spring training season. Baseball is back. All is right with the world. I leaned back in my recliner, a glass of iced tea (decaf) on the table by my side, and it felt so right. As you may gather, Im a baseball nut. Unlike a lot of baseball fans, I am just as comfortable watching a Little League game (I used to coach) as a Major League game. Ive been to Williamsport, to Little Leagues World Series, and Ive been to numerous Major League games. Thats all great, but I am a diehard Mets fan. They started playing 50 years ago, in the 1962 season, and last year they looked as if they hadnt learned much in those 50 years. They were, however, missing their ace pitcher last season, Johan Santana, who threw two scoreless innings in the second game of the spring last week, leading to wild speculation about the chances this year. Mets fans are used to the saying, Wait til next year! I dont care. I just enjoy sitting back, rooting for my team, from the comfort of my living room. My wife missed this spring opener because she is out of town. It has taken more than 48 years together, but Im finally getting her converted a little. She can recognize Jose Reyes (now a Marlin) and David Wright. She knows the names of some of the others, including Santana. I even coerced her, one year, to name our new cat Mookie, after Mookie Wilson, who was a star fielder and later a first base coach for the Mets. My favorite baseball movie is Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. There are a couple of lines in that movie that always stick with me. One is uttered by Costner, as he looks over the field he has built, and says, Its perfect. The other is the dialogue by Jones, trying to talk Costner out of selling his farm. He describes the sport this way: The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. Its been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. That, in a nutshell, is why I like baseball. Thats why every year, about this time, I get that relaxed, contented feeling. All of you can have your NBA playoffs and Stanley Cup playoffs. March Madness ends about the time the regular baseball season starts. Ill take the baseball season over all of those other sports. So if you need to contact me after April 1, consult the baseball schedule first and see what time the Mets are playing. If you call during those hours, youll probably have to leave a message. But dont worry. Ill get back to you probably sometime in October.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

N ow that Undersheriff Dan Kuhn has been cleared to run for sheriff without quitting his job by the Office of Special Counsel, there remains one big question which has gone unanswered. Who complained? Someone had to alert the federal government about the possibility of a conflict with the Hatch Act, although that conflict was so remote that it was ultimately dismissed by the Counsel. Forgetting the discussion of whether the Hatch Act is effective in the current political scene, we have to wonder who tried to blow the whistle on Kuhn. Unfortunately, were probably going to get little help from the feds, who say that these complaints are privileged and the person who filed them cant be identified. Why? This is another example of those who work in the federal government failing to realize that they work for us, for we the people. We deserve to know whether this was a political dirty trick by a candidate, or whether it was some overzealous citizen who is against Kuhns candidacy. His opponents, if they didnt file the complaint, have to come out and say so vehemently. That might help clear the air. But it wont change the fact that the federal government, for a while, looked as if it would interfere in a local election, and wont tell us why. Hopefully, someone who has the ability to do so will file with the courts to get a release of the complaint. Until then, were in the dark, which is where our federal government likes to keep us. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No open government on the part of the Feds Boys of summer, though its still winter Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The power of the third rail has fizzled Invisible, irrelevantI read an article in the Tampa Bay Times dated March 8 where the Democrats in the Florida House and Senate feel that they are invisible and irrelevant. While this is true they must realize that the general electorate does not read or understand politics especially Florida politics where the minority rules. While the Democrats hold the majority number of voters in their party, the Republican and Independents understand how to vote and make their votes count. I agree that recently the minority Democratic party in the House and Senate have stopped many of the harmful bills introduced by the Republicans but the public is unaware of their actions. There is very little publicity that is allowed outside of Tallahassee that is not beneficial to the Republican Party, and if a blurb does escape from time to time the Democrat electorate does not understand what is being done to them. The Democratic Party in Florida does not understand that this is their state also and if you want something you must fight for it. The Democratic Party does not know how to organize a grass roots campaign to represent the people and are afraid to fight where they might possibly lose an election. By not fighting, you have already lost! Jerry Segovis Ocala Peaceful vs. violentAnother political perspective: Who are the good guys, and who are the bad guys? What criteria can we use? How about: Peaceful vs violent? Who wants to resolve issues peacefully, and who wants chaos, revolution, turmoil, and blood? That seems a pretty good yardstick by which to measure politics. Dont you think? How many opt for peaceful? How many for Bloodshed? If it is to be your blood? Now, how many? This is the 21st century? Can we ever expect to see a day when the call for violent revolution will cease? Will this century be that time? Not when we are looming on the verge of another holocaust. Will humans ever be free from the scourge of Bloodlusters, or, will we be saddled with them forever? Do we have a choice? I think we do. We just have to smarten up. Recognize the nasties when they appear, and say NO. The nasties are at work right now, cant you spot them?

Marion County Quilt On DisplayThe Oak Run Quilters Marion County quilt will be on display at the Palm Grove auditorium March 22-25 thanks to the Little Theater Group. For theater goers the quilt will be on display during all performances of Sex, Please, Were Sixty.

The members of the Quilt Club designed and created this large wall-hanging. It is not for sale, but is a traveling exhibit reflecting not only our love of quilting, but of many of the fun and interesting sites within Marion County. Each block that surrounds the center map was made by individual members of the club to show their favorite place within the county we call home. Then members took needle in hand to finish quilting and to bind the project. There were a variety of quilting techniques used to make the quilt including thread painting, appliqu, piecing, hand quilting, and machine quilting. Many hands, as well as many hours, were spent from start to finish on this project. Our thanks to the Little Theater Group for allowing us to show off our work during their play. Talents of all sorts abound in Oak Run!!

Keep communication lines open. T AU R U S (A pril 20 to May 20) Its not easy to bring order to a chaotic situation, whether its in the workplace or at home. But if anyone can do it, you can. A pleasant surprise awaits you by weeks end. GE M INI ( May 21 to J une 20) Be careful that you dont make an upcoming decision solely on the word of those who might have their own reasons for wanting you to act as they suggest. Check things out for yourself. C AN C E R (J une 21 to J uly 22) A personal relationship that seems to be going nowhere could be restarted once you know why it stalled. An honest discussion could result in some surprising revelations. L E O (J uly 23 to A ug 22) That unexpected attack of self-doubt could be a way of warning yourself to go slow before making a careerchanging decision. Take more time to do a closer study of the facts. V I R G O (A ug 23 to Sept 22) A workplace problem needs your attention, now, before it deteriorates to a point beyond repair. A trusted third party could be helpful in closing the gaps that have opened. L IB R A ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) A recent family situation could give rise to a new problem. Keep an open mind and avoid making judgments about anyones motives until all the facts are in.

soon to become a nightmare. At his side is Laurie, the woman he adores, and rounding out the family is 14-year-old Jacob, their only child. When teenager Ben Rifkin is found stabbed to death in a park area the high-school kids travel through on their way to class, Andy springs into action, ignoring the fact that Ben is Jacobs classmate. To Andy theres no conflict of interest, but others see it differently. In spite of his protests Andy is taken off the case, which is turned over to his arch rival. Andy is sure a local pedophile is the culprit but other investigators are thinking its one of Bens classmates. Things heat up when Andy finds a lethal-looking knife in Jacobs room, one he didnt know his son owned. Thinking only that Jacob could be falsely accused of the crime, the concerned father throws the knife away. He thinks no more of it until troubling doubts prompt him to check out Jacobs Facebook wall where classmates have written, Jake, everyone knows you did it. Eventually Jacob is arrested and a family begins to come apart in Landays agonizing portrait. As the trial date nears a bad situation is further complicated by Andys reluctant confession to the defenses psychiatrist that both his father and grandfather were murderers and their choice of weapon was a knife. There follows layer after nuanced layer of revelation and legal maneuvering. The ending is so unpredictable that had this been a movie no one would be seated during the last 20 minutes. Highly recommended. Photo Club formingThree people have expressed an interest in learning all aspects of photography through a Cherrywood Photo Club.

Pine Run Knit and Crochet group This group took on the project to make a donation and we chose The Centers which was making items for children within our community. The Centers is a community based Care Program for mostly court ordered protective supervision of children and families in our community that has come to their attention through abuse reports. What we made were: scarfs, hats, mittens, baby afghans, baby set (booties, hats, jackets & blanket), lap robes, sweaters, and afghans for children from newborn to 17 years of age. Our Ladies got together and made 267 items (including sets 337 pieces) and we delivered them on March 6. It is our hope that what we accomplished will help in some way help the children and families in our community. Our next project will be for the Salvation Army with what ever our fingers decide to do! In the photo is Pat Brady, Vivian Stevens, Del Vieria, Karen Bowen, Annette King, Lynda Altman, Del Wilson, Esther Reinblatt, Lucile Jones, not shown is Helen Claiborne & Jane Allen. Submitted By Karen Bowen is always a good thing and that is the purpose of this weekly column. This weeks person in the Spotlight is Linda Sisto. Linda was born in Needham, Massachusetts, and graduated from the Roslindale High School. She worked as an executive secretary for the John Hancock Insurance Company and Built Rite Homes Corp. in her home state. Her brother Tony Sisto stayed in Dorchester, Massachusetts, when Linda and her Mom, Ann, moved down to Cherrywood in 2004. Unfortunately, last July 23, Ann passed away which was a huge loss to Linda. Having been involved with the Ladies Luncheon, Color Guard and head of the Ladies Social Committee, Linda then turned her attention to music. Linda is the director of our own Cherrywood Songbirds and has been since 2010. Shes a vibrant person with extensive experience in music. She began her music career as an alto in the local church choir. Shortly after her arrival at Cherrywood, Linda paired up with Peter Rockfeld. The duo played at numerous and diverse places like the Mason Jar; Pronto Pizza, various assisted living facilities and for special occasions. While Linda sang alto up north, when she moved to Florida and joined the Queen of Peace Choir, they placed her in the soprano section where shes worked her way up to First Soprano. Singing has always been a part of her life and she enjoys it immensely. Linda loves working with all the members of the Songbirds. The most satisfying part of her work is when she sees people struggle with a piece of music and then hit the notes. All of the individual parts blend together in four part harmony; it almost brings a tear to her eye. She loves the directing aspect of her labor because it allows her to challenge and teach others to create beautiful music. Under her direction, the Songbirds have become well known in Marion County. In keeping with her spirit of community service, the Songbirds travel to various assisted living locations including The Bridge; Quiet Oaks and Hampton Manor. In addition, they entertain at such places as Pine Run and On Top of the World, where they sing for the Italian Club and the New England Club. Of all the places they go, Linda finds their fundraising concert at Joy Lutheran Church the most rewarding. The money from th annual event goes to purchase shoes for needy children. Questioned about the frustrations involved with directing the group Linda smiled and answered, When people dont show up for practice. When asked about the most satisfying part of directing the Songbirds she beamed and answered, Getting called back to places and getting invited to new places. It means our performances were well received! The Songbirds practice every Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse, so if you have any desire to sing, please show up. You dont have to read music; all you need is the desire to make beautiful music with your friends and neighbors. Thanks to Linda Sisto, it will come together in perfect harmony.

T omorrow is St. Patricks Day, a holiday first celebrated in 1737 by Irish immigrants in Boston. Now almost everyone celebrates by wearing green, being honorary Irish, drinking green beer, and eating corned beef and cabbage. The Irish can be proud; going green the year around has now become a worldwide objective. In honor of St. Patty, Pun Alley gets painted green and has some Irish fun. Taken to the cleanersPatrick OReilly was lucky. Since the day he had found a four-leaf clover, everything good seemed to come his way. He had married a wonderful woman and later, was the father of beautiful twins. At work he had been promoted and had received a substantial raise. Patty, certain his good fortune was due to his four-leaf clover, always carried the clover in his suit pocket. One morning, Patty searched and could not find the clover. He recalled it was in his suit that he had left at the cleaners. When he picked it up, the clover was still in one piece but flattened from the dry cleaning. After that Pattys fortunes changed. The twins developed measles when his boss and the bosss wife visited for dinner. He had a flat tire on his way to an important meeting and lost his job. So many bad things happened to him, he visited the parish priest to ask for advice. This certainly was to be expected, the priest said. You should have known. One should never press ones luck. HangoverTwo Irish men, Paddy and Murphy were walking down a country road, when they observed a man hanging over a bridge with another mans legs in his grasp. The other man shouted up now, now to his friend who promptly pulled him up. To Paddy and Murphys astonishment the man had a large fish in his arms. Paddy and Murphy decided to give this plan a try, so they walked on to the next bridge where Paddy dangled Murphy over the bridge. After five minutes Murphy started to scream up, Paddy, Paddy, pull me up. Paddy asked, Have you got a fish? No, theres a bloody train coming. CrosswayGallagher was in Boston and waiting patiently while watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the traffic and shouted, Okay pedestrians. Then he allowed the traffic to pass. He did this several times, and Gallagher was still standing on the sidewalk. After the cop shouted Pedestrians for the tenth time, Gallagher approached him and said, Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across? Leprechaun talesHey, Paudge, do I hear you spitting in the vase on the mantelpiece? No, Brigid, but Im getting closer all the time. Ma, theres a strange man at the door. Has he got a bill? No, Ma, just an ordinary nose. Murphy, why dont you give up the drinking, smoking and carousing? said Mrs. OLeary Its too late, replied Murphy. Its never too late, assured the virtuous Mrs. OLeary. Well, theres no rush then, smiled Murphy. Mrs. OShaughnessy, could you give me anything for a home for alcoholics? Come back at teatime. My husband will be in then. Darragh was boasting of his grandfather, He lived for 94 years and never once used glasses. Phelim replied, I always said it was healthier to drink from the bottle. Two Irishmen, Pat and Murphy, saw a sign saying Tree Fellers wanted. Murphy said to Pat, said, If only Seamus had been with us wed have got that job. Dig it An aging man lived alone in Ireland. His only son was in prison, and he didnt know anyone who would spade up his potato garden. The old man wrote to his son about it, and received this reply, For heavens sake, dont dig up that garden, thats where I buried the guns! Soon a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, but didnt find any guns. Confused, the man wrote to his son telling him what happened and asking him what to do next. His sons reply was, Just plant your potatoes. Hows That?A Belfast newspaper once reported the launching of an aircraft carrier and reported, The Duchess smashed the bottle against the bow and with the applause of the crowd she slid on her greasy bottom into the sea.

According to Marion County jail records, Kadrian L. Clayton, 19, faces various charges after being apprehended by city officers following a short chase. He had allegedly been caught in the act of taking a flat screen television in the northeast section of Ocala. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Clayton was linked to a front door being kicked in and a flat screen TV being taken in Pine Run. On March 9, someone reported that a home on Southwest 103rd Lane was entered and that a flat screen television and a TV game had been taken after the front door of the house was kicked in. The homeowner had gone out for a couple of hours and had locked the house with the door knob lock. After developing information, deputies arrested Clayton in the jail where he was already being held on the city charges. He faces the following charges: armed burglary of a dwelling, unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling, unarmed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, two charges of grand theft, resisting without violence, driving while license knowingly suspended or revoked, reckless driving, and damage to property/criminal mischief (the flat screen TV in the city burglary was broken). His total bond is $66,000.

Snapp during the Health and Wellness Expo last Saturday at the Paddock Mall in Ocala. A suspected drug kingpin faces 67 charges and bond of more than $5 million after his arrest this week. On Monday and Tuesday, March 12 and 13, the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team (UDEST), along with assistance from the Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team (MADET), Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Fifth Judicial Circuit of the State Attorneys Office, collectively combined efforts for a county/city roundup of an investigation taking 11 months to culminate. The operation called Blue Forest refers to a large pill trafficking organization located in the area of the Ocala National Forest, and the street name blue which is the Oxycodone pill, which typically sells for $ 15 to $ 25 a pill. For nearly 11 months, agents identified numerous subjects selling and buying prescription narcotics. Through several investigative techniques agents were allegedly able to identify Eugene Bubba Ryals as the mastermind of a very well organized and systematic pharmaceutical drug trafficking organization operating within Marion County. Sheriffs officials say Ryals had an elaborate organization to include a runner, broker and mid-level organizer which is commonly referred to as a sponsor. During the investigation, agents were able to infiltrate the inner workings of the organization which led to Bond more than $5 million for alleged sale of pills Ryals PLEASESEEPILLS PAGE3 United Way of Marion County continues to offer free income tax preparation through a variety of VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) locations through Tuesday, April 17.

According to Marion County jail records, Kadrian L. Clayton, 19, faces various charges after being apprehended by city officers following a short chase. He had allegedly been caught in the act of taking a flat screen television in the northeast section of Ocala. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Clayton was linked to a front door being kicked in and a flat screen TV being taken in Pine Run. On March 9, someone reported that a home on Southwest 103rd Lane was entered and that a flat screen television and a TV game had been taken after the front door of the house was kicked in. The homeowner had gone out for a couple of hours and had locked the house with the door knob lock. After developing information, deputies arrested Clayton in the jail where he was already being held on the city charges. He faces the following charges: armed burglary of a dwelling, unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling, unarmed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, two charges of grand theft, resisting without violence, driving while license knowingly suspended or revoked, reckless driving, and damage to property/criminal mischief (the flat screen TV in the city burglary was broken). His total bond is $66,000.

Snapp during the Health and Wellness Expo last Saturday at the Paddock Mall in Ocala. A suspected drug kingpin faces 67 charges and bond of more than $5 million after his arrest this week. On Monday and Tuesday, March 12 and 13, the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team (UDEST), along with assistance from the Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team (MADET), Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Fifth Judicial Circuit of the State Attorneys Office, collectively combined efforts for a county/city roundup of an investigation taking 11 months to culminate. The operation called Blue Forest refers to a large pill trafficking organization located in the area of the Ocala National Forest, and the street name blue which is the Oxycodone pill, which typically sells for $ 15 to $ 25 a pill. For nearly 11 months, agents identified numerous subjects selling and buying prescription narcotics. Through several investigative techniques agents were allegedly able to identify Eugene Bubba Ryals as the mastermind of a very well organized and systematic pharmaceutical drug trafficking organization operating within Marion County. Sheriffs officials say Ryals had an elaborate organization to include a runner, broker and mid-level organizer which is commonly referred to as a sponsor. During the investigation, agents were able to infiltrate the inner workings of the organization which led to Bond more than $5 million for alleged sale of pills Ryals PLEASESEEPILLS, PAGE3 United Way of Marion County continues to offer free income tax preparation through a variety of VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) locations through Tuesday, April 17.

Pine Run Knit and Crochet group This group took on the project to make a donation and we chose The Centers which was making items for children within our community. The Centers is a community based Care Program for mostly court ordered protective supervision of children and families in our community that has come to their attention through abuse reports. What we made were: scarfs, hats, mittens, baby afghans, baby set (booties, hats, jackets & blanket), lap robes, sweaters, and afghans for children from newborn to 17 years of age. Our Ladies got together and made 267 items (including sets 337 pieces) and we delivered them on March 6. It is our hope that what we accomplished will help in some way help the children and families in our community. Our next project will be for the Salvation Army with what ever our fingers decide to do! In the photo is Pat Brady, Vivian Stevens, Del Vieria, Karen Bowen, Annette King, Lynda Altman, Del Wilson, Esther Reinblatt, Lucile Jones, not shown is Helen Claiborne & Jane Allen. Submitted By Karen Bowen is always a good thing and that is the purpose of this weekly column. This weeks person in the Spotlight is Linda Sisto. Linda was born in Needham, Massachusetts, and graduated from the Roslindale High School. She worked as an executive secretary for the John Hancock Insurance Company and Built Rite Homes Corp. in her home state. Her brother Tony Sisto stayed in Dorchester, Massachusetts, when Linda and her Mom, Ann, moved down to Cherrywood in 2004. Unfortunately, last July 23, Ann passed away which was a huge loss to Linda. Having been involved with the Ladies Luncheon, Color Guard and head of the Ladies Social Committee, Linda then turned her attention to music. Linda is the director of our own Cherrywood Songbirds and has been since 2010. Shes a vibrant person with extensive experience in music. She began her music career as an alto in the local church choir. Shortly after her arrival at Cherrywood, Linda paired up with Peter Rockfeld. The duo played at numerous and diverse places like the Mason Jar; Pronto Pizza, various assisted living facilities and for special occasions. While Linda sang alto up north, when she moved to Florida and joined the Queen of Peace Choir, they placed her in the soprano section where shes worked her way up to First Soprano. Singing has always been a part of her life and she enjoys it immensely. Linda loves working with all the members of the Songbirds. The most satisfying part of her work is when she sees people struggle with a piece of music and then hit the notes. All of the individual parts blend together in four part harmony; it almost brings a tear to her eye. She loves the directing aspect of her labor because it allows her to challenge and teach others to create beautiful music. Under her direction, the Songbirds have become well known in Marion County. In keeping with her spirit of community service, the Songbirds travel to various assisted living locations including The Bridge; Quiet Oaks and Hampton Manor. In addition, they entertain at such places as Pine Run and On Top of the World, where they sing for the Italian Club and the New England Club. Of all the places they go, Linda finds their fundraising concert at Joy Lutheran Church the most rewarding. The money from th annual event goes to purchase shoes for needy children. Questioned about the frustrations involved with directing the group Linda smiled and answered, When people dont show up for practice. When asked about the most satisfying part of directing the Songbirds she beamed and answered, Getting called back to places and getting invited to new places. It means our performances were well received! The Songbirds practice every Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse, so if you have any desire to sing, please show up. You dont have to read music; all you need is the desire to make beautiful music with your friends and neighbors. Thanks to Linda Sisto, it will come together in perfect harmony.

Tomorrow is St. Patricks Day, a holiday first celebrated in 1737 by Irish immigrants in Boston. Now almost everyone celebrates by wearing green, being honorary Irish, drinking green beer, and eating corned beef and cabbage. The Irish can be proud; going green the year around has now become a worldwide objective. In honor of St. Patty, Pun Alley gets painted green and has some Irish fun.Taken to the cleanersPatrick OReilly was lucky. Since the day he had found a four-leaf clover, everything good seemed to come his way. He had married a wonderful woman and later, was the father of beautiful twins. At work he had been promoted and had received a substantial raise. Patty, certain his good fortune was due to his four-leaf clover, always carried the clover in his suit pocket. One morning, Patty searched and could not find the clover. He recalled it was in his suit that he had left at the cleaners. When he picked it up, the clover was still in one piece but flattened from the dry cleaning. After that Pattys fortunes changed. The twins developed measles when his boss and the bosss wife visited for dinner. He had a flat tire on his way to an important meeting and lost his job. So many bad things happened to him, he visited the parish priest to ask for advice. This certainly was to be expected, the priest said. You should have known. One should never press ones luck.HangoverTwo Irish men, Paddy and Murphy were walking down a country road, when they observed a man hanging over a bridge with another mans legs in his grasp. The other man shouted up now, now to his friend who promptly pulled him up. To Paddy and Murphys astonishment the man had a large fish in his arms. Paddy and Murphy decided to give this plan a try, so they walked on to the next bridge where Paddy dangled Murphy over the bridge. After five minutes Murphy started to scream up, Paddy, Paddy, pull me up. Paddy asked, Have you got a fish? No, theres a bloody train coming.CrosswayGallagher was in Boston and waiting patiently while watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the traffic and shouted, Okay pedestrians. Then he allowed the traffic to pass. He did this several times, and Gallagher was still standing on the sidewalk. After the cop shouted Pedestrians for the tenth time, Gallagher approached him and said, Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?Leprechaun talesHey, Paudge, do I hear you spitting in the vase on the mantelpiece? No, Brigid, but Im getting closer all the time. Ma, theres a strange man at the door. Has he got a bill? No, Ma, just an ordinary nose. Murphy, why dont you give up the drinking, smoking and carousing? said Mrs. OLeary Its too late, replied Murphy. Its never too late, assured the virtuous Mrs. OLeary. Well, theres no rush then, smiled Murphy. Mrs. OShaughnessy, could you give me anything for a home for alcoholics? Come back at teatime. My husband will be in then. Darragh was boasting of his grandfather, He lived for 94 years and never once used glasses. Phelim replied, I always said it was healthier to drink from the bottle. Two Irishmen, Pat and Murphy, saw a sign saying Tree Fellers wanted. Murphy said to Pat, said, If only Seamus had been with us wed have got that job.Dig itAn aging man lived alone in Ireland. His only son was in prison, and he didnt know anyone who would spade up his potato garden. The old man wrote to his son about it, and received this reply, For heavens sake, dont dig up that garden, thats where I buried the guns! Soon a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, but didnt find any guns. Confused, the man wrote to his son telling him what happened and asking him what to do next. His sons reply was, Just plant your potatoes.Hows That?A Belfast newspaper once reported the launching of an aircraft carrier and reported, The Duchess smashed the bottle against the bow and with the applause of the crowd she slid on her greasy bottom into the sea.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

soon to become a nightmare. At his side is Laurie, the woman he adores, and rounding out the family is 14-year-old Jacob, their only child. When teenager Ben Rifkin is found stabbed to death in a park area the high-school kids travel through on their way to class, Andy springs into action, ignoring the fact that Ben is Jacobs classmate. To Andy theres no conflict of interest, but others see it differently. In spite of his protests Andy is taken off the case, which is turned over to his arch rival. Andy is sure a local pedophile is the culprit but other investigators are thinking its one of Bens classmates. Things heat up when Andy finds a lethal-looking knife in Jacobs room, one he didnt know his son owned. Thinking only that Jacob could be falsely accused of the crime, the concerned father throws the knife away. He thinks no more of it until troubling doubts prompt him to check out Jacobs Facebook wall where classmates have written, Jake, everyone knows you did it. Eventually Jacob is arrested and a family begins to come apart in Landays agonizing portrait. As the trial date nears a bad situation is further complicated by Andys reluctant confession to the defenses psychiatrist that both his father and grandfather were murderers and their choice of weapon was a knife. There follows layer after nuanced layer of revelation and legal maneuvering. The ending is so unpredictable that had this been a movie no one would be seated during the last 20 minutes. Highly recommended. Photo Club formingThree people have expressed an interest in learning all aspects of photography through a Cherrywood Photo Club.

For theater goers the quilt will be on display during all performances of Sex, Please, Were Sixty. For those who are not able to attend the play you may drop by the Palm Grove facility from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on March 22, 23, and 24 and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. The members of the Quilt Club designed and created this large wall-hanging. It is not for sale, but is a traveling exhibit reflecting not only our love of quilting, but of many of the fun and interesting sites within Marion County. Each block that surrounds the center map was made by individual members of the club to show their favorite place within the county we call home. Then members took needle in hand to finish quilting and to bind the project. There were a variety of quilting techniques used to make the quilt including thread painting, appliqu, piecing, hand quilting, and machine quilting. Many hands, as well as many hours, were spent from start to finish on this project. Our thanks to the Little Theater Group for allowing us to show off our work during their play. Talents of all sorts abound in Oak Run!! Please drop by and take a look at it, while it is still here in Oak Run.Tuesday is Bingo NightCome and join your friends and neighbors for a fun night of bingo at the Orchid Club.

At its March 5 meeting, Little Theatre members discussed the plight of the people in the Midwest who are suffering due to the recent tornadoes. Many lost their loved ones, others saw the destruction of their homes and businesses. We know something of their plight because of hurricanes in our state. It was unanimously decided that Little Theatre would help these suffering souls by donating the proceeds of one of our show nights for Sex Please Were Sixty to the American Red Cross tornado relief. We all felt thankful for our own safety and flushed with pride that our theatre group could offer assistance. The play is nearing the home stretch, the cast is being fine tuned by the directors and this promises to be one of the warmest and funniest plays weve ever been privileged to bring to our Oak Run audiences. The cut off for selling tickets for the dinner theatre was March 12 so we could give Royal Oaks dining staff a head count for dinners. Tickets to the other three shows (Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 25, at 3 p.m.) are still available. If you cannot make one of the public ticket sales, please call Linda Noel at 352-8739908. Any remaining reserved or general admission tickets will be on sale at the door prior to each of the shows. If history repeats itself, a complete sell out of tickets on Sunday is a possibility. It seems that people attending previous performances tell their friends and neighbors how much they enjoyed the show and it inspires people to attend the final performance. We have more than once had to transport extra chairs from the Orchid Club to Palm Grove to accommodate this last minute surge.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the Donna Boltons Showcase of Stars from May, 2011.

For further information please contactFriday, March 16, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Social Security is no longer the threatening third rail of American politics. Until the reforms of the Greenspan Commission in 1983, politicians did not dare fiddle with Social Security for fear of being electrocuted by voters at the next election. Based on the Commissions recommendations, Congress raised the retirement age and extended the solvency of Social Security for 75 years to 2058. Unfortunately theyve been very short years. More reform is on the horizon, and Social Security has few champions. In 2010, during a rare moment of harmony, Democrats and Republicans agreed to extend the politically popular payroll tax cuts put in place by generous George Bush, who financed two wars and wild Congressional spending with checks from China. More recently, President Obama insisted on an extension of the extension. Some key Democrats balked at extending a reduction which is adding $89 billion to this years deficit. After lengthy dissension between and among Republicans and Democrats, the President was granted a vote-buying extension of the FICA tax holiday to the end of 2012, which occurs right after the November election. Whats next? Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, a Democrat and one of the honorable members of Congress, was opposed to the tax holiday extension for the right reason. He said Make no mistake; this is the beginning of the end of the sanctity of Social Security. The very real risk is that Social Security will become just another program to be paid for with deficit spending, and then in the future, perhaps raided to reduce the deficit. Republicans may not be known as Social Security cheerleaders, but they knew when the third rail needed repairs. It was President Reagan who appointed the Greenspan Social Security Reform Commission. Unfortunately the Commissions reforms were seriously negated by the irresponsible spending of George Bush and his no-veto Congress. As for Democrats, their lengthy reputation as supporters of Social Security is fading. Mr. Obama and key members of his administration believe too much federal support goes to senior citizens, and too little to social programs they favor, such as Obamacare and food stamps. Mr. Obamas 2010 Commission on Fiscal Responsibility (debt and deficit), co-chaired by Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, included more than a few members who were in favor of privatizing Social Security. It was of no consequence, because the President ignored the Commissions work and report. It was also little noticed that during last years debt and deficit wrestling match between Congress and the White House, President Obama suggested a plan for major changes and spending reductions to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for new tax revenues. That a Democrat president would suggest such changes to congressional Democrats is a sign of things to come, as suggested by Senator Harkin. Seniors and aging boomers would be well advised to take a cue from the Tea Partys emphasis on Congress in the 2008 election. It matters more who serves in the House and Senate than who may sit in the Oval Office for the next four years. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 16, 2012 Fishing is not my favorite activity actually, Ive only been fishing once in my life, as a boy, caught some little fish up at Greenwood Lake, New York, watched him squirm, told my father to put him back in the water so he wouldnt suffer, and never touched a rod and reel again. But I once had a fisherman describe the feeling the first time he went out in season, in the early morning on a peaceful lake, with nothing to concentrate on, except what he was doing. He said it was pure relaxation. I had that feeling last week. It came on Monday evening when the New York Mets Dillon Gee threw the first pitch of the spring training season. Baseball is back. All is right with the world. I leaned back in my recliner, a glass of iced tea (decaf) on the table by my side, and it felt so right. As you may gather, Im a baseball nut. Unlike a lot of baseball fans, I am just as comfortable watching a Little League game (I used to coach) as a Major League game. Ive been to Williamsport, to Little Leagues World Series, and Ive been to numerous Major League games. Thats all great, but I am a diehard Mets fan. They started playing 50 years ago, in the 1962 season, and last year they looked as if they hadnt learned much in those 50 years. They were, however, missing their ace pitcher last season, Johan Santana, who threw two scoreless innings in the second game of the spring last week, leading to wild speculation about the chances this year. Mets fans are used to the saying, Wait til next year! I dont care. I just enjoy sitting back, rooting for my team, from the comfort of my living room. My wife missed this spring opener because she is out of town. It has taken more than 48 years together, but Im finally getting her converted a little. She can recognize Jose Reyes (now a Marlin) and David Wright. She knows the names of some of the others, including Santana. I even coerced her, one year, to name our new cat Mookie, after Mookie Wilson, who was a star fielder and later a first base coach for the Mets. My favorite baseball movie is Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. There are a couple of lines in that movie that always stick with me. One is uttered by Costner, as he looks over the field he has built, and says, Its perfect. The other is the dialogue by Jones, trying to talk Costner out of selling his farm. He describes the sport this way: The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. Its been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. That, in a nutshell, is why I like baseball. Thats why every year, about this time, I get that relaxed, contented feeling. All of you can have your NBA playoffs and Stanley Cup playoffs. March Madness ends about the time the regular baseball season starts. Ill take the baseball season over all of those other sports. So if you need to contact me after April 1, consult the baseball schedule first and see what time the Mets are playing. If you call during those hours, youll probably have to leave a message. But dont worry. Ill get back to you probably sometime in October.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

Now that Undersheriff Dan Kuhn has been cleared to run for sheriff without quitting his job by the Office of Special Counsel, there remains one big question which has gone unanswered. Who complained? Someone had to alert the federal government about the possibility of a conflict with the Hatch Act, although that conflict was so remote that it was ultimately dismissed by the Counsel. Forgetting the discussion of whether the Hatch Act is effective in the current political scene, we have to wonder who tried to blow the whistle on Kuhn. Unfortunately, were probably going to get little help from the feds, who say that these complaints are privileged and the person who filed them cant be identified. Why? This is another example of those who work in the federal government failing to realize that they work for us, for we the people. We deserve to know whether this was a political dirty trick by a candidate, or whether it was some overzealous citizen who is against Kuhns candidacy. His opponents, if they didnt file the complaint, have to come out and say so vehemently. That might help clear the air. But it wont change the fact that the federal government, for a while, looked as if it would interfere in a local election, and wont tell us why. Hopefully, someone who has the ability to do so will file with the courts to get a release of the complaint. Until then, were in the dark, which is where our federal government likes to keep us. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No open government on the part of the Feds Boys of summer, though its still winter Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The power of the third rail has fizzled Invisible, irrelevantI read an article in the Tampa Bay Times dated March 8 where the Democrats in the Florida House and Senate feel that they are invisible and irrelevant. While this is true they must realize that the general electorate does not read or understand politics especially Florida politics where the minority rules. While the Democrats hold the majority number of voters in their party, the Republican and Independents understand how to vote and make their votes count. I agree that recently the minority Democratic party in the House and Senate have stopped many of the harmful bills introduced by the Republicans but the public is unaware of their actions. There is very little publicity that is allowed outside of Tallahassee that is not beneficial to the Republican Party, and if a blurb does escape from time to time the Democrat electorate does not understand what is being done to them. The Democratic Party in Florida does not understand that this is their state also and if you want something you must fight for it. The Democratic Party does not know how to organize a grass roots campaign to represent the people and are afraid to fight where they might possibly lose an election. By not fighting, you have already lost! Jerry Segovis OcalaPeaceful vs. violentAnother political perspective: Who are the good guys, and who are the bad guys? What criteria can we use? How about: Peaceful vs violent? Who wants to resolve issues peacefully, and who wants chaos, revolution, turmoil, and blood? That seems a pretty good yardstick by which to measure politics. Dont you think? How many opt for peaceful? How many for Bloodshed? If it is to be your blood? Now, how many? This is the 21st century? Can we ever expect to see a day when the call for violent revolution will cease? Will this century be that time? Not when we are looming on the verge of another holocaust. Will humans ever be free from the scourge of Bloodlusters, or, will we be saddled with them forever? Do we have a choice? I think we do. We just have to smarten up.

Nothing is worth more bloodshed. Enough already. D.I. Larson OcalaSonogram: Window to the wombThe abortion industry rejects the merits of sonogram technology as applied to abortion procedures. Some abortion promoters even refer to sonogram as invasive and describe the procedure as physical rape of women. According to Random House Websters Unabridged dictionary, in order for sonogram to be invasive, it would require entry of a needle, catheter, or other instrument into a part of the body. Producing a visual image in a diagnostic ultrasound examination does not require such action; invasion is not necessary for a sonogram to be produced. However, promoters of abortion put that spin on the procedure in order to produce unnecessary aversion to the use of sonogram/ultrasound. Abortionists know that visual images of unborn children are strong deterrents to abortion. The Florida law requiring sonogram viewing to be offered to all clients before abortion truly makes it a womans choice. If the client does not choose to view the sonogram image of the baby, she may decline. Florida women paid for, but were denied important medical information before the July 2011 sonogram law was enacted. Sonograms have always been used by abortionists to establish gestation periods which they need to establish abortion costs. The costs of these sonograms are built into the total cost, but before the new Florida law was established, the abortionists withheld this additional medical information from the pregnant women. It is difficult to make a credible case for abortion, so the abortion promoters make feeble attempts to ridicule and offset the solid and sensible reasoning of the pro-life community. Such abortion advocates have no recourse other than to oppose reason with trivia unworthy of belief or confidence. Mabel Ryan President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 My husband and I are history buffs. When the kids were small, we went to just about every fort on the East Coast. I remember my daughter pleading with us: Why cant we go to theme parks like the other families? I would just smile and hand her a guidebook for yet another historical site. Did it surprise me that my son minored in history in college? I still like visiting historical spots, Gettysburg always being a high point on my list. Here the Civil War is the whole town. On any given day, re-enactors can be seen parading down Steinwehr Avenue in period dress, ladies in hoop skirted dresses and picture hats, men with stovepipe hats, white shirts and grey pants. I only want to follow that crowd down the street brandishing a parasol and wide skirt that floats as you walk. The whole Civil War era has given me fuel for thought. What did the Jews do in the Civil War and what was the impact of the conflict on the small minority that numbered about 150,000 at the time? As with other events in history, both here and abroad, there were widespread events that did indeed shape the history of the Jews. The Civil War provided an opportunity for Jews to participate in the conflict as equal citizens, rising through the ranks to officer status. Few armies at the time allowed this. The war also was a time for Jews to identify with their neighbors, the Southern Jews with the South, the Northern Jews with the North. As such, they took on the views of the areas in which they lived. While today we think of Jews as being liberal and for civil rights, even in the North, the Jewish population was divided on the issue while in the South, there were some Jewish slave owners.

Iwas snuggling down in my easy chair with a riveting book in hand when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage shared with me an observation. I just was thinking, she began very seriously, that we have not taken a trip lately. We once went to Thailand for several weeks, which was wonderful. One of the delightful things of that trip was visiting the elephant ranch and riding the elephants. As we were in line to ride the elephants the person in charge took one look at me and said, No, no. He said something in some language I could not understand and then proceeded to pair my wife up with another woman and insisted I ride the elephant alone. From what I got out of his gestures and tone of voice was he thought I was too heavy to ride an elephant. Being compared with an elephant and being on the losing side of the comparison, is not something I enjoyed experiencing. I have been insulted quite a bit throughout my life, and this certainly was one of them. Being the congenial gentleman that I am, I submitted to his evaluation and rode the elephant by myself. I did a lot of bouncing, deliberately, on my elephant ride. I hope that elephant remembers me. We have had other trips and have enjoyed ourselves tremendously. But when she asked about the last trip we took, I could not bring into focus our last trip. Not world travelers, of course, but we do like to take little jaunts here and there just to get away from the rat race. To participate in the rat race I suppose you have to be a rat. It is good to get away from other rats and associate with rats you do not know. Nothing really came of my wifes observation. She just mentioned it, then the subject was dropped, and we went on to what we were doing. Several days later I was about to take the trip of my life. I bought some ink cartridges for my printer and happened to buy the wrong kind. The way the world operates today is that you cannot make a mistake and then take the product back and exchange it for the right one. The only way I could get any satisfaction about this was to call the company and put in a request to have this ink exchanged for the right cartridge. I got the number and called the company. That was the beginning of my trip around the world. The first stage of this trip was punching in numbers. I am not sure of the purpose for punching in numbers in order to get to somebody that can help you. What happened to the good old days where you actually talked to a person you could understand what they were saying? For about 15 minutes, I punched in number after number after number. I thought for a moment that I was reading the book of Numbers in the Old Testament. I do not mind numbers when they add up. However, what I really do not like are arbitrary numbers that absolutely make no sense to me. Of course, many things do not make any sense to me. Finally, after punching numbers until my fingers began to bleed, I got an actual human voice. Ah, the great satisfaction of actually encountering a living, breathing human being on the telephone. I took a moment to enjoy the moment. It was not to last long. As I began listening to the voice on the other end of the phone, I became a little puzzled. I heard the voice, she came through loud and clear but I had no idea what she was saying. I said quite a few times when the conversation warranted, Huh. After a few minutes of this, I realized the person I was talking to was in the Philippines. How I got to the Philippines, I will never know. I am not saying that the young womans English was bad, just that my ears were not able to catch the nuances of her phrases. Not getting any satisfaction from this young woman in the Philippines, she transferred me to someone in India. I had just got accustomed, or so I thought, to the Filipino accent and now I was hearing someone talk to me from India with a completely different accent. I spent a few minutes in India and what we talked about I have no idea. I just wanted to exchange my ink cartridges for the correct ones. I am not sure what somebody in India has to do with my problem. Not getting any satisfaction from the chap in India, I was transferred to someone in Idaho. I wanted cartridges not potatoes. After some quasi-delightful minutes in Idaho, I came to the excruciating conclusion that it would be worth my while, not to mention the cash involved, to just forget the whole thing and throw those cartridges away and buy new ones. On my way to buy a new cartridge, I thought of a verse of Scripture. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known (1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV). I am looking forward to that final trip where I will see Him face to face, no misunderstanding then.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Confederacy was a Jew, Judah Benjamin, and is often referred to as The Brains of the Confederacy. Whether they fought for the North or the South, the Jews felt comfortable and accepted by their neighbors and so demonstrated their loyalty by fighting side by side with them. The War Between the States also afforded the Jews a chance to fight for their rights. As the blacks were slighted and segregated in the Second War, so too did the Jews confront prejudice. As the war began, the military chaplaincy was restricted to those of the Christian faith. This restricting legislation was overturned and Jewish chaplains joined the ranks alongside their Christian counterparts. And in December 1862, they demonstrated at the White House against General Grants notorious General Orders #11, expelling Jews as a class from his war zone. The order was rescinded but such an act was certainly a black mark against the general and the American military as a whole. It took a man, ironically named Abraham, to overturn this act and expose it for the anti-Semitism it espoused. President Lincoln, to his credit, overturned this order because he did not believe in condemning a whole group of people for a few sinners. And of course, Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, also repudiated anti-Semitism because of his close association with Judah Benjamin. An interesting footnote to Jewish involvement in the Civil War, is a cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. Called the Hebrew Confederate Cemetery, it is the only Jewish military one in the world outside of the State of Israel. Here lie the remains of Confederate soldiers denied burial in Confederate cemeteries because of their Jewish heritage. These soldiers were casualties of the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness. The bodies were buried on Shockroe Hill and after the War, the care of the graves was presided over by the Hebrew Ladies Memorial Association who erected an ornamental iron fence depicting muskets, crossed swords and a Confederate cap. In the 1930s, the crumbling grave stones were replaced by a bronze plaque that reads: To the glory of God and in memory of the Hebrew Confederate soldiers resting in this hallowed spot. Not all Jewish Confederate soldiers are buried in this spot; some have been interred in family plots. It would also seem plausible that like their Northern brethren, they would be buried in synagogue-sponsored plots. Congregation Beth Ahabah today maintains the cemetery. As for that hoop skirted dress I wanted, I have decided, in true Scarlett OHara style, to simply say: Fiddle Dee Dee! It just would have been a bit too cumbersome getting in and out of my Mazda!

The Dr. Dunn team is inching closer because they are starting to meld together again, but can it be too late? Maybe, but there are plenty of games left to play, and The Great Clips team could go into a slump. The Wiseway team has started to show some life with its two straight wins this past week. The team has been struggling all season, and two consecutive wins might be just what is needed. The Tee Pee Tire and Cebert Wealth teams continue to share fourth place, while Florida Eye is trying to get out of their slump. It may turn out to be a close run for the top if the Florida Eye and Dr. Dunn teams can muster up some energy and get over their erratic play. Ultimately, its now time to wait and see what will transpire with the teams.

The Dr. Dunn team is inching closer because they are starting to meld together again, but can it be too late? Maybe, but there are plenty of games left to play, and The Great Clips team could go into a slump. The Wiseway team has started to show some life with its two straight wins this past week. The team has been struggling all season, and two consecutive wins might be just what is needed. The Tee Pee Tire and Cebert Wealth teams continue to share fourth place, while Florida Eye is trying to get out of their slump. It may turn out to be a close run for the top if the Florida Eye and Dr. Dunn teams can muster up some energy and get over their erratic play. Ultimately, its now time to wait and see what will transpire with the teams.

Confederacy was a Jew, Judah Benjamin, and is often referred to as The Brains of the Confederacy. Whether they fought for the North or the South, the Jews felt comfortable and accepted by their neighbors and so demonstrated their loyalty by fighting side by side with them. The War Between the States also afforded the Jews a chance to fight for their rights. As the blacks were slighted and segregated in the Second War, so too did the Jews confront prejudice. As the war began, the military chaplaincy was restricted to those of the Christian faith. This restricting legislation was overturned and Jewish chaplains joined the ranks alongside their Christian counterparts. And in December 1862, they demonstrated at the White House against General Grants notorious General Orders #11, expelling Jews as a class from his war zone. The order was rescinded but such an act was certainly a black mark against the general and the American military as a whole. It took a man, ironically named Abraham, to overturn this act and expose it for the anti-Semitism it espoused. President Lincoln, to his credit, overturned this order because he did not believe in condemning a whole group of people for a few sinners. And of course, Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, also repudiated anti-Semitism because of his close association with Judah Benjamin. An interesting footnote to Jewish involvement in the Civil War, is a cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. Called the Hebrew Confederate Cemetery, it is the only Jewish military one in the world outside of the State of Israel. Here lie the remains of Confederate soldiers denied burial in Confederate cemeteries because of their Jewish heritage. These soldiers were casualties of the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness. The bodies were buried on Shockroe Hill and after the War, the care of the graves was presided over by the Hebrew Ladies Memorial Association who erected an ornamental iron fence depicting muskets, crossed swords and a Confederate cap. In the 1930s, the crumbling grave stones were replaced by a bronze plaque that reads: To the glory of God and in memory of the Hebrew Confederate soldiers resting in this hallowed spot. Not all Jewish Confederate soldiers are buried in this spot; some have been interred in family plots. It would also seem plausible that like their Northern brethren, they would be buried in synagogue-sponsored plots. Congregation Beth Ahabah today maintains the cemetery. As for that hoop skirted dress I wanted, I have decided, in true Scarlett OHara style, to simply say: Fiddle Dee Dee! It just would have been a bit too cumbersome getting in and out of my Mazda!

Iwas snuggling down in my easy chair with a riveting book in hand when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage shared with me an observation. I just was thinking, she began very seriously, that we have not taken a trip lately. We once went to Thailand for several weeks, which was wonderful. One of the delightful things of that trip was visiting the elephant ranch and riding the elephants. As we were in line to ride the elephants the person in charge took one look at me and said, No, no. He said something in some language I could not understand and then proceeded to pair my wife up with another woman and insisted I ride the elephant alone. From what I got out of his gestures and tone of voice was he thought I was too heavy to ride an elephant. Being compared with an elephant and being on the losing side of the comparison, is not something I enjoyed experiencing. I have been insulted quite a bit throughout my life, and this certainly was one of them. Being the congenial gentleman that I am, I submitted to his evaluation and rode the elephant by myself. I did a lot of bouncing, deliberately, on my elephant ride. I hope that elephant remembers me. We have had other trips and have enjoyed ourselves tremendously. But when she asked about the last trip we took, I could not bring into focus our last trip. Not world travelers, of course, but we do like to take little jaunts here and there just to get away from the rat race. To participate in the rat race I suppose you have to be a rat. It is good to get away from other rats and associate with rats you do not know. Nothing really came of my wifes observation. She just mentioned it, then the subject was dropped, and we went on to what we were doing. Several days later I was about to take the trip of my life. I bought some ink cartridges for my printer and happened to buy the wrong kind. The way the world operates today is that you cannot make a mistake and then take the product back and exchange it for the right one. The only way I could get any satisfaction about this was to call the company and put in a request to have this ink exchanged for the right cartridge. I got the number and called the company. That was the beginning of my trip around the world. The first stage of this trip was punching in numbers. I am not sure of the purpose for punching in numbers in order to get to somebody that can help you. What happened to the good old days where you actually talked to a person you could understand what they were saying? For about 15 minutes, I punched in number after number after number. I thought for a moment that I was reading the book of Numbers in the Old Testament. I do not mind numbers when they add up. However, what I really do not like are arbitrary numbers that absolutely make no sense to me. Of course, many things do not make any sense to me. Finally, after punching numbers until my fingers began to bleed, I got an actual human voice. Ah, the great satisfaction of actually encountering a living, breathing human being on the telephone. I took a moment to enjoy the moment. It was not to last long. As I began listening to the voice on the other end of the phone, I became a little puzzled. I heard the voice, she came through loud and clear but I had no idea what she was saying. I said quite a few times when the conversation warranted, Huh. After a few minutes of this, I realized the person I was talking to was in the Philippines. How I got to the Philippines, I will never know. I am not saying that the young womans English was bad, just that my ears were not able to catch the nuances of her phrases. Not getting any satisfaction from this young woman in the Philippines, she transferred me to someone in India. I had just got accustomed, or so I thought, to the Filipino accent and now I was hearing someone talk to me from India with a completely different accent. I spent a few minutes in India and what we talked about I have no idea. I just wanted to exchange my ink cartridges for the correct ones. I am not sure what somebody in India has to do with my problem. Not getting any satisfaction from the chap in India, I was transferred to someone in Idaho. I wanted cartridges not potatoes. After some quasi-delightful minutes in Idaho, I came to the excruciating conclusion that it would be worth my while, not to mention the cash involved, to just forget the whole thing and throw those cartridges away and buy new ones. On my way to buy a new cartridge, I thought of a verse of Scripture. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known (1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV). I am looking forward to that final trip where I will see Him face to face, no misunderstanding then.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Some abortion promoters even refer to sonogram as invasive and describe the procedure as physical rape of women. According to Random House Websters Unabridged dictionary, in order for sonogram to be invasive, it would require entry of a needle, catheter, or other instrument into a part of the body. Producing a visual image in a diagnostic ultrasound examination does not require such action; invasion is not necessary for a sonogram to be produced. However, promoters of abortion put that spin on the procedure in order to produce unnecessary aversion to the use of sonogram/ultrasound. Abortionists know that visual images of unborn children are strong deterrents to abortion. The Florida law requiring sonogram viewing to be offered to all clients before abortion truly makes it a womans choice. If the client does not choose to view the sonogram image of the baby, she may decline. Florida women paid for, but were denied important medical information before the July 2011 sonogram law was enacted. Sonograms have always been used by abortionists to establish gestation periods which they need to establish abortion costs. The costs of these sonograms are built into the total cost, but before the new Florida law was established, the abortionists withheld this additional medical information from the pregnant women. It is difficult to make a credible case for abortion, so the abortion promoters make feeble attempts to ridicule and offset the solid and sensible reasoning of the pro-life community. Such abortion advocates have no recourse other than to oppose reason with trivia unworthy of belief or confidence. Mabel Ryan President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 My husband and I are history buffs. When the kids were small, we went to just about every fort on the East Coast. I remember my daughter pleading with us: Why cant we go to theme parks like the other families? I would just smile and hand her a guidebook for yet another historical site. Did it surprise me that my son minored in history in college? I still like visiting historical spots, Gettysburg always being a high point on my list. Here the Civil War is the whole town. On any given day, re-enactors can be seen parading down Steinwehr Avenue in period dress, ladies in hoop skirted dresses and picture hats, men with stovepipe hats, white shirts and grey pants. I only want to follow that crowd down the street brandishing a parasol and wide skirt that floats as you walk. The whole Civil War era has given me fuel for thought. What did the Jews do in the Civil War and what was the impact of the conflict on the small minority that numbered about 150,000 at the time? As with other events in history, both here and abroad, there were widespread events that did indeed shape the history of the Jews. The Civil War provided an opportunity for Jews to participate in the conflict as equal citizens, rising through the ranks to officer status. Few armies at the time allowed this. The war also was a time for Jews to identify with their neighbors, the Southern Jews with the South, the Northern Jews with the North. As such, they took on the views of the areas in which they lived. While today we think of Jews as being liberal and for civil rights, even in the North, the Jewish population was divided on the issue while in the South, there were some Jewish slave owners.

And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well.

At its March 5 meeting, Little Theatre members discussed the plight of the people in the Midwest who are suffering due to the recent tornadoes. Many lost their loved ones, others saw the destruction of their homes and businesses. We know something of their plight because of hurricanes in our state. It was unanimously decided that Little Theatre would help these suffering souls by donating the proceeds of one of our show nights for Sex Please Were Sixty to the American Red Cross tornado relief. We all felt thankful for our own safety and flushed with pride that our theatre group could offer assistance. The play is nearing the home stretch, the cast is being fine tuned by the directors and this promises to be one of the warmest and funniest plays weve ever been privileged to bring to our Oak Run audiences. The cut off for selling tickets for the dinner theatre was March 12 so we could give Royal Oaks dining staff a head count for dinners. Tickets to the other three shows (Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 25, at 3 p.m.) are still available. If you cannot make one of the public ticket sales, please call Linda Noel at 352-8739908. Any remaining reserved or general admission tickets will be on sale at the door prior to each of the shows. If history repeats itself, a complete sell out of tickets on Sunday is a possibility. It seems that people attending previous performances tell their friends and neighbors how much they enjoyed the show and it inspires people to attend the final performance. We have more than once had to transport extra chairs from the Orchid Club to Palm Grove to accommodate this last minute surge.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the Donna Boltons Showcase of Stars from May, 2011.

For further information please contactFriday, March 16, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Social Security is no longer the threatening third rail of American politics. Until the reforms of the Greenspan Commission in 1983, politicians did not dare fiddle with Social Security for fear of being electrocuted by voters at the next election. Based on the Commissions recommendations, Congress raised the retirement age and extended the solvency of Social Security for 75 years to 2058. Unfortunately theyve been very short years. More reform is on the horizon, and Social Security has few champions. In 2010, during a rare moment of harmony, Democrats and Republicans agreed to extend the politically popular payroll tax cuts put in place by generous George Bush, who financed two wars and wild Congressional spending with checks from China. More recently, President Obama insisted on an extension of the extension. Some key Democrats balked at extending a reduction which is adding $89 billion to this years deficit. After lengthy dissension between and among Republicans and Democrats, the President was granted a vote-buying extension of the FICA tax holiday to the end of 2012, which occurs right after the November election. Whats next? Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, a Democrat and one of the honorable members of Congress, was opposed to the tax holiday extension for the right reason. He said Make no mistake; this is the beginning of the end of the sanctity of Social Security. The very real risk is that Social Security will become just another program to be paid for with deficit spending, and then in the future, perhaps raided to reduce the deficit. Republicans may not be known as Social Security cheerleaders, but they knew when the third rail needed repairs. It was President Reagan who appointed the Greenspan Social Security Reform Commission. Unfortunately the Commissions reforms were seriously negated by the irresponsible spending of George Bush and his no-veto Congress. As for Democrats, their lengthy reputation as supporters of Social Security is fading. Mr. Obama and key members of his administration believe too much federal support goes to senior citizens, and too little to social programs they favor, such as Obamacare and food stamps. Mr. Obamas 2010 Commission on Fiscal Responsibility (debt and deficit), co-chaired by Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson, included more than a few members who were in favor of privatizing Social Security. It was of no consequence, because the President ignored the Commissions work and report. It was also little noticed that during last years debt and deficit wrestling match between Congress and the White House, President Obama suggested a plan for major changes and spending reductions to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for new tax revenues. That a Democrat president would suggest such changes to congressional Democrats is a sign of things to come, as suggested by Senator Harkin. Seniors and aging boomers would be well advised to take a cue from the Tea Partys emphasis on Congress in the 2008 election. It matters more who serves in the House and Senate than who may sit in the Oval Office for the next four years. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 16, 2012 Fishing is not my favorite activity actually, Ive only been fishing once in my life, as a boy, caught some little fish up at Greenwood Lake, New York, watched him squirm, told my father to put him back in the water so he wouldnt suffer, and never touched a rod and reel again. But I once had a fisherman describe the feeling the first time he went out in season, in the early morning on a peaceful lake, with nothing to concentrate on, except what he was doing. He said it was pure relaxation. I had that feeling last week. It came on Monday evening when the New York Mets Dillon Gee threw the first pitch of the spring training season. Baseball is back. All is right with the world. I leaned back in my recliner, a glass of iced tea (decaf) on the table by my side, and it felt so right. As you may gather, Im a baseball nut. Unlike a lot of baseball fans, I am just as comfortable watching a Little League game (I used to coach) as a Major League game. Ive been to Williamsport, to Little Leagues World Series, and Ive been to numerous Major League games. Thats all great, but I am a diehard Mets fan. They started playing 50 years ago, in the 1962 season, and last year they looked as if they hadnt learned much in those 50 years. They were, however, missing their ace pitcher last season, Johan Santana, who threw two scoreless innings in the second game of the spring last week, leading to wild speculation about the chances this year. Mets fans are used to the saying, Wait til next year! I dont care. I just enjoy sitting back, rooting for my team, from the comfort of my living room. My wife missed this spring opener because she is out of town. It has taken more than 48 years together, but Im finally getting her converted a little. She can recognize Jose Reyes (now a Marlin) and David Wright. She knows the names of some of the others, including Santana. I even coerced her, one year, to name our new cat Mookie, after Mookie Wilson, who was a star fielder and later a first base coach for the Mets. My favorite baseball movie is Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. There are a couple of lines in that movie that always stick with me. One is uttered by Costner, as he looks over the field he has built, and says, Its perfect. The other is the dialogue by Jones, trying to talk Costner out of selling his farm. He describes the sport this way: The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. Its been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again. That, in a nutshell, is why I like baseball. Thats why every year, about this time, I get that relaxed, contented feeling. All of you can have your NBA playoffs and Stanley Cup playoffs. March Madness ends about the time the regular baseball season starts. Ill take the baseball season over all of those other sports. So if you need to contact me after April 1, consult the baseball schedule first and see what time the Mets are playing. If you call during those hours, youll probably have to leave a message. But dont worry. Ill get back to you probably sometime in October.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

Now that Undersheriff Dan Kuhn has been cleared to run for sheriff without quitting his job by the Office of Special Counsel, there remains one big question which has gone unanswered. Who complained? Someone had to alert the federal government about the possibility of a conflict with the Hatch Act, although that conflict was so remote that it was ultimately dismissed by the Counsel. Forgetting the discussion of whether the Hatch Act is effective in the current political scene, we have to wonder who tried to blow the whistle on Kuhn. Unfortunately, were probably going to get little help from the feds, who say that these complaints are privileged and the person who filed them cant be identified. Why? This is another example of those who work in the federal government failing to realize that they work for us, for we the people. We deserve to know whether this was a political dirty trick by a candidate, or whether it was some overzealous citizen who is against Kuhns candidacy. His opponents, if they didnt file the complaint, have to come out and say so vehemently. That might help clear the air. But it wont change the fact that the federal government, for a while, looked as if it would interfere in a local election, and wont tell us why. Hopefully, someone who has the ability to do so will file with the courts to get a release of the complaint. Until then, were in the dark, which is where our federal government likes to keep us. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No open government on the part of the Feds Boys of summer, though its still winter Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The power of the third rail has fizzled Invisible, irrelevantI read an article in the Tampa Bay Times dated March 8 where the Democrats in the Florida House and Senate feel that they are invisible and irrelevant. While this is true they must realize that the general electorate does not read or understand politics especially Florida politics where the minority rules. While the Democrats hold the majority number of voters in their party, the Republican and Independents understand how to vote and make their votes count. I agree that recently the minority Democratic party in the House and Senate have stopped many of the harmful bills introduced by the Republicans but the public is unaware of their actions. There is very little publicity that is allowed outside of Tallahassee that is not beneficial to the Republican Party, and if a blurb does escape from time to time the Democrat electorate does not understand what is being done to them. The Democratic Party in Florida does not understand that this is their state also and if you want something you must fight for it. The Democratic Party does not know how to organize a grass roots campaign to represent the people and are afraid to fight where they might possibly lose an election. By not fighting, you have already lost! Jerry Segovis OcalaPeaceful vs. violentAnother political perspective: Who are the good guys, and who are the bad guys? What criteria can we use? How about: Peaceful vs violent? Who wants to resolve issues peacefully, and who wants chaos, revolution, turmoil, and blood? That seems a pretty good yardstick by which to measure politics. Dont you think? How many opt for peaceful? How many for Bloodshed? If it is to be your blood? Now, how many? This is the 21st century? Can we ever expect to see a day when the call for violent revolution will cease? Will this century be that time? Not when we are looming on the verge of another holocaust. Will humans ever be free from the scourge of Bloodlusters, or, will we be saddled with them forever? Do we have a choice? I think we do. We just have to smarten up. Recognize the nasties when they appear, and say NO. The nasties are at work right now, cant you spot them?

The members of the Quilt Club designed and created this large wall-hanging. It is not for sale, but is a traveling exhibit reflecting not only our love of quilting, but of many of the fun and interesting sites within Marion County. Each block that surrounds the center map was made by individual members of the club to show their favorite place within the county we call home. Then members took needle in hand to finish quilting and to bind the project. There were a variety of quilting techniques used to make the quilt including thread painting, appliqu, piecing, hand quilting, and machine quilting. Many hands, as well as many hours, were spent from start to finish on this project. Our thanks to the Little Theater Group for allowing us to show off our work during their play. Talents of all sorts abound in Oak Run!!

soon to become a nightmare. At his side is Laurie, the woman he adores, and rounding out the family is 14-year-old Jacob, their only child. When teenager Ben Rifkin is found stabbed to death in a park area the high-school kids travel through on their way to class, Andy springs into action, ignoring the fact that Ben is Jacobs classmate. To Andy theres no conflict of interest, but others see it differently. In spite of his protests Andy is taken off the case, which is turned over to his arch rival. Andy is sure a local pedophile is the culprit but other investigators are thinking its one of Bens classmates. Things heat up when Andy finds a lethal-looking knife in Jacobs room, one he didnt know his son owned. Thinking only that Jacob could be falsely accused of the crime, the concerned father throws the knife away. He thinks no more of it until troubling doubts prompt him to check out Jacobs Facebook wall where classmates have written, Jake, everyone knows you did it. Eventually Jacob is arrested and a family begins to come apart in Landays agonizing portrait. As the trial date nears a bad situation is further complicated by Andys reluctant confession to the defenses psychiatrist that both his father and grandfather were murderers and their choice of weapon was a knife. There follows layer after nuanced layer of revelation and legal maneuvering. The ending is so unpredictable that had this been a movie no one would be seated during the last 20 minutes. Highly recommended. Photo Club formingThree people have expressed an interest in learning all aspects of photography through a Cherrywood Photo Club.

Pine Run Knit and Crochet group This group took on the project to make a donation and we chose The Centers which was making items for children within our community. The Centers is a community based Care Program for mostly court ordered protective supervision of children and families in our community that has come to their attention through abuse reports. What we made were: scarfs, hats, mittens, baby afghans, baby set (booties, hats, jackets & blanket), lap robes, sweaters, and afghans for children from newborn to 17 years of age. Our Ladies got together and made 267 items (including sets 337 pieces) and we delivered them on March 6. It is our hope that what we accomplished will help in some way help the children and families in our community. Our next project will be for the Salvation Army with what ever our fingers decide to do! In the photo is Pat Brady, Vivian Stevens, Del Vieria, Karen Bowen, Annette King, Lynda Altman, Del Wilson, Esther Reinblatt, Lucile Jones, not shown is Helen Claiborne & Jane Allen. Submitted By Karen Bowen is always a good thing and that is the purpose of this weekly column. This weeks person in the Spotlight is Linda Sisto. Linda was born in Needham, Massachusetts, and graduated from the Roslindale High School. She worked as an executive secretary for the John Hancock Insurance Company and Built Rite Homes Corp. in her home state. Her brother Tony Sisto stayed in Dorchester, Massachusetts, when Linda and her Mom, Ann, moved down to Cherrywood in 2004. Unfortunately, last July 23, Ann passed away which was a huge loss to Linda. Having been involved with the Ladies Luncheon, Color Guard and head of the Ladies Social Committee, Linda then turned her attention to music. Linda is the director of our own Cherrywood Songbirds and has been since 2010. Shes a vibrant person with extensive experience in music. She began her music career as an alto in the local church choir. Shortly after her arrival at Cherrywood, Linda paired up with Peter Rockfeld. The duo played at numerous and diverse places like the Mason Jar; Pronto Pizza, various assisted living facilities and for special occasions. While Linda sang alto up north, when she moved to Florida and joined the Queen of Peace Choir, they placed her in the soprano section where shes worked her way up to First Soprano. Singing has always been a part of her life and she enjoys it immensely. Linda loves working with all the members of the Songbirds. The most satisfying part of her work is when she sees people struggle with a piece of music and then hit the notes. All of the individual parts blend together in four part harmony; it almost brings a tear to her eye. She loves the directing aspect of her labor because it allows her to challenge and teach others to create beautiful music. Under her direction, the Songbirds have become well known in Marion County. In keeping with her spirit of community service, the Songbirds travel to various assisted living locations including The Bridge; Quiet Oaks and Hampton Manor. In addition, they entertain at such places as Pine Run and On Top of the World, where they sing for the Italian Club and the New England Club. Of all the places they go, Linda finds their fundraising concert at Joy Lutheran Church the most rewarding. The money from th annual event goes to purchase shoes for needy children. Questioned about the frustrations involved with directing the group Linda smiled and answered, When people dont show up for practice. When asked about the most satisfying part of directing the Songbirds she beamed and answered, Getting called back to places and getting invited to new places. It means our performances were well received! The Songbirds practice every Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse, so if you have any desire to sing, please show up. You dont have to read music; all you need is the desire to make beautiful music with your friends and neighbors. Thanks to Linda Sisto, it will come together in perfect harmony.

Tomorrow is St. Patricks Day, a holiday first celebrated in 1737 by Irish immigrants in Boston. Now almost everyone celebrates by wearing green, being honorary Irish, drinking green beer, and eating corned beef and cabbage. The Irish can be proud; going green the year around has now become a worldwide objective. In honor of St. Patty, Pun Alley gets painted green and has some Irish fun.Taken to the cleanersPatrick OReilly was lucky. Since the day he had found a four-leaf clover, everything good seemed to come his way. He had married a wonderful woman and later, was the father of beautiful twins. At work he had been promoted and had received a substantial raise. Patty, certain his good fortune was due to his four-leaf clover, always carried the clover in his suit pocket. One morning, Patty searched and could not find the clover. He recalled it was in his suit that he had left at the cleaners. When he picked it up, the clover was still in one piece but flattened from the dry cleaning. After that Pattys fortunes changed. The twins developed measles when his boss and the bosss wife visited for dinner. He had a flat tire on his way to an important meeting and lost his job. So many bad things happened to him, he visited the parish priest to ask for advice. This certainly was to be expected, the priest said. You should have known. One should never press ones luck.HangoverTwo Irish men, Paddy and Murphy were walking down a country road, when they observed a man hanging over a bridge with another mans legs in his grasp. The other man shouted up now, now to his friend who promptly pulled him up. To Paddy and Murphys astonishment the man had a large fish in his arms. Paddy and Murphy decided to give this plan a try, so they walked on to the next bridge where Paddy dangled Murphy over the bridge. After five minutes Murphy started to scream up, Paddy, Paddy, pull me up. Paddy asked, Have you got a fish? No, theres a bloody train coming.CrosswayGallagher was in Boston and waiting patiently while watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the traffic and shouted, Okay pedestrians. Then he allowed the traffic to pass. He did this several times, and Gallagher was still standing on the sidewalk. After the cop shouted Pedestrians for the tenth time, Gallagher approached him and said, Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?Leprechaun talesHey, Paudge, do I hear you spitting in the vase on the mantelpiece? No, Brigid, but Im getting closer all the time. Ma, theres a strange man at the door. Has he got a bill? No, Ma, just an ordinary nose. Murphy, why dont you give up the drinking, smoking and carousing? said Mrs. OLeary Its too late, replied Murphy. Its never too late, assured the virtuous Mrs. OLeary. Well, theres no rush then, smiled Murphy. Mrs. OShaughnessy, could you give me anything for a home for alcoholics? Come back at teatime. My husband will be in then. Darragh was boasting of his grandfather, He lived for 94 years and never once used glasses. Phelim replied, I always said it was healthier to drink from the bottle. Two Irishmen, Pat and Murphy, saw a sign saying Tree Fellers wanted. Murphy said to Pat, said, If only Seamus had been with us wed have got that job.Dig itAn aging man lived alone in Ireland. His only son was in prison, and he didnt know anyone who would spade up his potato garden. The old man wrote to his son about it, and received this reply, For heavens sake, dont dig up that garden, thats where I buried the guns! Soon a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, but didnt find any guns. Confused, the man wrote to his son telling him what happened and asking him what to do next. His sons reply was, Just plant your potatoes.Hows That?A Belfast newspaper once reported the launching of an aircraft carrier and reported, The Duchess smashed the bottle against the bow and with the applause of the crowd she slid on her greasy bottom into the sea.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

According to Marion County jail records, Kadrian L. Clayton, 19, faces various charges after being apprehended by city officers following a short chase. He had allegedly been caught in the act of taking a flat screen television in the northeast section of Ocala. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Clayton was linked to a front door being kicked in and a flat screen TV being taken in Pine Run. On March 9, someone reported that a home on Southwest 103rd Lane was entered and that a flat screen television and a TV game had been taken after the front door of the house was kicked in. The homeowner had gone out for a couple of hours and had locked the house with the door knob lock.

Sheriffs officials say Ryals had an elaborate organization to include a runner, broker and mid-level organizer which is commonly referred to as a sponsor. During the investigation, agents were able to infiltrate the inner workings of the organization which led to Bond more than $5 million for alleged sale of pills Ryals PLEASESEEPILLS, PAGE3 United Way of Marion County continues to offer free income tax preparation through a variety of VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) locations through Tuesday, April 17.
