District 5 candidates discuss hospital, jobs


BY JIM CLARK
Editor


If Monday night's debate for
Marion County Commission Dis-
trict 5 candidates is any indica-
tion, economic development and
the fate of Munroe Regional Med-
ical Center will be the hot button
topics this year.
One candidate said, however,
that discussion of the hospital
might not matter.
Four of the candidates gathered
at the Tea Party Solutions meeting
at Berean Baptist Church, and it


didn't take long for the hospital to
be mentioned.
Those candidates attending
were Earl Arnett, Bob Cretul, Pat
Gabriel and Butch Verrando.
Cretul commented that the
"biggest thing" was Munroe Re-
gional Medical Center. "I think
MRMC needs to stay a community
hospital. I've been a patient there.
I know the quality of service. They
are very, very good."
Arnett, asked how he would vote
on a possible tax increase for hos-
pital improvements, said, "That's
a very complex question." He said


that they would need a half cent
now, in a couple of years need an-
other, and then another. He said
he had been told that the hospital
is operating as "slim and trim" as
it can be.
He said the option of leasing to
another company should be stud-
ied. "The problem with taxation is
where does it stop." He was asked
if the hospital was "top heavy."
"How many in this room make
$450,000 a year? How many make
a quarter of a million?" When no
one responded, he said, "I think
that answers the question."


Verrando said, answering a later
question, that the hospital has a
$30 million shortfall, but the pro-
posed sales tax would only gener-
ate $16 million.
"There's one problem. Munroe
claims they're the only indigent
care facility, but they're not. There
are four hospitals in our county,
and they all must take you. If you
walk in ...and can't pay, they have
to take you.
"A sales tax has to be divvied up
among all four facilities.

Irish celebration
Complete with a green alien, Lex Betty, 10, of Ocala was
one of those celebrating St. Patrick's Day on the Ocala
Downtown Square. Below, part of the crowd watching
the entertainment.


"I thought I was in trouble. I asked my-
self, 'What did I do now'?"
West Port High School junior Amanda
Lugo, who had trouble with a test earlier,
had those thoughts last Thursday during
her last period JROTC class. William
McAteer, assistant principal for curricu-
lum, walked into her class and asked, "Is
there an Amanda Lugo here?"
Amanda's trepidation immediately
turned into elation after McAteer walked
in, closely followed by Amy Lugo,
Amanda's mother.
Amy, a master sergeant in the Army, had
returned home from a year's deployment
in Kuwait about 11 days early, completely
surprising her two daughters. Earlier in
the day, she had visited daughter Alexis at
Howard Middle School.
Amanda rushed to her mother and
melted in her arms, and the two shared a
few special moments while members of
the invited media and Amanda's sur-
prised smiling classmates looked on.
Soon Amanda, 16, was joined by her sis-
ter and her father, Al Lugo, who is the di-
rector of the VFW Retirement Home in
Fort McCoy
The group then moved outside for more
talking and sharing of special moments.
The class went back to work, but
Amanda's school day was over.
The student said she had no idea what
was happening "until she (her mother)
walked in the door"
Amy wasn't expected until March 24,
but she had gotten permission to come
home "well within the window" a few
days earlier.
Since schools are closed this week for
spring break, she wanted to be home with
her children.
Her military service isn't over. She will
be stationed in Virginia, but hopes that
this was her last deployment.

ment with her mother, Amy, in Amanda's
classroom at West Port High School.
She spoke a little of her work in the
Middle East, where she worked on equal
opportunity issues. "It's very different
over there. The children have no idea.
They don't get the opportunities, espe-
cially the girls."
For dad, Amy's return meant he could
give up his home duties for a while. "It
was a struggle," he said, adding that time
management was a major problem. He
said that every day was pretty much the
same, like "Groundhog Day," the movie
where Bill Murray relives the same day
over and over again.

DEBATE
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
"The next option is an ad
valorem tax. I personally
am against an ad valorem
tax. Indigents by their def-
inition don't own property.
You are being asked to pay
for a segment of our popu-
lation that has no capabil-
ity of paying, has no
incentive to pay and is not
going to be asked to pay I
think that's fundamentally
wrong."
Gabriel said that outside
consultants have verified
that it is a "very efficiently
run hospital. Whether I
agree with the salary struc-
ture is another issue, but
the hospital is considered


very efficient.
"I honestly think it will
probably go on the ballot
for us citizens to decide. I
think it's going to have to
be a massive education."
Verrando commented,
though, that "this hospital
is becoming a proverbial
tennis ball. The hospital
process is probably going
to be completed before the
elections." He said a pay-
ment for a lease would go
into a trust fund, "and
that's what's going to pay
for indigent care."
He added, "The taxpay-
ers can't feed this monster,
there is no way this county
can support this hospital
the way it needs to grow."
He also said, "The other
thing we need to consider


is that when we see the
hospital we see a building
with doctors. The county
will retain ownership of
the assets. We are talking
about transferring the
lease that currently exists.
We're not going to sell the
building." He noted that
now the hospital is consid-
ered a government agency
and pays no taxes. "We
need to have an income
generator and a good facil-
ity, or we could have a
black hole for our money."
Business development
and tax incentives came
into the discussion, with
some disagreement.
Verrando said that he
had started a small busi-
ness in Ocala. "I personally
understand small business


and the pressure the fed-
eral and state governments
are applying to business,
making their ability to sur-
vive more difficult. Our
government is bloated with
too many taxes, rules, red
tape and bureaucrats."
Cretul commented, "I'm
all for attracting business,
with conditions, when it
comes to incentives. If you
tell me you're going to do
this, we'll do that for you. If
you don't do it, then we
need to sit down and talk.
Don't give the money up
front. We've seen that sev-
eral times, pretty much in
the city, but we can take a
lesson from that."
Gabriel commented, "We
need jobs." She said that
the quality of life was im-


portant, including hospi-
tals, education, parks and
recreation.
"I don't believe in incen-
tives," she said. "All of the
things that make Marion
County attractive should
be incentive enough."
Arnett disagreed. "The
EDC and the chamber
need to effectively sell
Marion County Selling it
on its own merit is wonder-
ful, but we also need to give
incentives to bring corpo-
rations here. Right now the
EDC and chamber are not
effectively selling Marion
County We need to be
proactive to business."
Verrando said that when
selling the county, "there's
one guy that's going to
make the decision (in a


company) and that's the
chief executive officer. If
he wants to live here, he's
going to live here. The big
question is whether or not
this area appeals to the
chief executive officer.
"When I first moved
here, we used to refer to it
as 'Slow-cala.' I can also
share with you that though
kayaking and bicycling is a
really great thing, that is
not the beginning and the
end to everyone's agenda."
He added, "we don't ac-
tually offer many incen-
tives for business to come
here today We have a
building and zoning de-
partments that are encum-
brances to business."

other debate topics.)

However, he had no regrets, saying that "she supported
me when I was in Afghanistan."
Amanda is active in school, a member of the track team
where she competes in the unusual combination of shot
put, discus and the mile run. She also takes courses such
as photography at the arts school, math and honors Eng-
lish and, "of course," as she said, driver's education.
The surprise took a bit of planning and coordination
among the parents, the school and School Board office,
and even some friends. Al had told the girls that he was
going to Tallahassee for a meeting, something that was-
n't unusual, and that they were going to spend the night
at a friend's house. Instead, he went to the Gainesville
Airport to pick up Amy who arrived about 11 o'clock the
night before.
Alexis, 13, plans to attend West Port next year and go
into the JROTC, following her sister's footsteps. With her
mom and dad both veterans, Amanda had this descrip-
tion of her family "We're Army strong."

Special to the Citizen

On Thursday, March 8,
an adventuresome group
from Joy Lutheran Church
attended the Horses In
The Sun (HITS) competi-
tion held at the Post Time
Farm on U.S. 27. From all
accounts, this group of 19
members thought the day
was a HIT It was a beauti-
ful sunny day and the
horses were impressive,
graceful "jumpers."
Twenty three horses com-
peted for the $25,000 prize.
There were three finalists
and the successful winner
was a 16 year old young
man who had two perfect
rounds.
HITS, Inc. is a special
events management com-
pany focused on producing
hunter/jumper horse
shows.
The company is based in
upstate New York in the
village of Saugerties. The
first HITS horse show cir-
cuit was in Gainesville,
Florida in 1982. Since that
time HITS has grown into a
nationwide company with
world-class hunter-jumper
circuits in California,
Florida, Arizona, New
York and Virginia.
It has been described
that the key to HITS suc-
cess is its strategy of pro-
ducing a series of horse
shows over several weeks,
in desirable destinations,
with first class competition

"In afree society a community newspaper must be aforum
for community opinion."

OUR VIEW



Transparency on


the local level

L ast week we complained about the lack of open-

ness in the federal process concerning a com-
plaint filed against a sheriff's candidate.
Today we go to the opposite end of the spectrum, a
comment on how one local community is being very
open about the candidates for its homeowners' group.
Elsewhere in today's edition, we are carrying a story
about the upcoming election in Pine Run. Nearly all the
candidates supplied the writer a written statement
about their background and reasons for running. The
residents of Pine Run can read this story and find out
where the hopefuls stand on the issues.
It's nice to see this transparency and openness on the
part of the candidates and the Pine Run community.
Other areas, we're sure, get the word out within their
communities about candidates for spots on their board,
but rarely does a detailed report such as this one be-
come available for all residents of the Corridor to ex-
amine.
There are currently many battles being waged across
the state with homeowners associations battling resi-
dents, some right here in Marion County. Openness and
honesty with the homeowners generally puts contro-
versies such as that to rest.
We praise the people of Pine Run for making them-
selves available as candidates and for making their
backgrounds public for all to see. Now all that remains
is for the residents to cast their vote on April 10. We
have a feeling the turnout will be pretty good.


COMMENTARY


Taking a look at our roads to nowhere


Four years ago, during the
presidential campaign, we
heard a lot of talk about a
'bridge to nowhere." The votes
for that project still haunt some
politicians today.
Well, those folks have nothing
on Marion County We have roads
to nowhere, lots of them, being
built.
Yes, they're all supposed to
connect up someday to form a
western bypass, but meanwhile,
there are some perfectly good
roads sitting there unusable, be-
cause they don't hook up with
anything.
There's a nice road off U.S. 27,
which goes nowhere. There's a
nice road in the southwest area,
which goes nowhere. And they
are rebuilding the 42nd Street,
Southwest, extension, which
goes nowhere at the moment, but
which will link up to the new
overpass when it is finished.
In fact, this can be dangerous.
Several months ago, in the dark
of night, a woman went down the
new road offU.S. 27, and plowed
into the end of the road. Her car
flipped, and she was killed.
So the question is this: Why
are they building this alleged by-
pass in bits and pieces? Why not
build one part of the road, then


open it to the public? Then they
could build the next part, and
open it to the public, and so forth.
Then we wouldn't have any roads
to nowhere.
Besides, if there's anything we
can do to alleviate traffic, it
should be done. State Road 200
over the past few weeks is a big-
city type disaster, matching some
of the road woes we see on Or-
lando television during rush
hour. Visitors pulling out onto
U.S. 27 from the motels and gas
stations at the Interstate seem to
have little disregard for oncom-
ing traffic. They just enter or
cross the road at will in areas
where there are no traffic lights.
The difference between us and
Orlando is that some of these tie-
ups occur at all hours of the day.
Those of us who have to use
part of 200 to get home after work
(I come in early enough in the
morning when most drivers


aren't yet awake) can't wait to get
off that road. Whether it's going
up 80th or 60th, or taking 66th
Street east to 27th Avenue, then
going up to 42nd Street, that de-
parture from Highway 200 can't
come soon enough.
I'm still not convinced this by-
pass is going to help. In fact, I
think it's going to make the area
around Market Street worse on
State Road 200, because traffic is
going to back up from that inter-
section with the new overpass
feeder road, possibly all the way
back to the interstate.
We'll have to see how it works,
but don't hold your breath hoping
that traffic on the west side is al-
leviated.
Don't look to me for advice on
how to avoid all these delays that
are taking place.
My solution for the next month
or so is to stay home, or go out
real early in the morning or late
in the evening.
I kind of like the stay home
part. Unfortunately, I don't think
my boss would agree.

The road to democracy has no backup lane


Nothing inspires a steamed-up
column more than confusion
about the nature of our govern-
ment. This steamer was gener-
ated by letters in the daily papers
about capitalism and democracy,
neither of which has any status
in our form of government.
Adding to the misconceptions,
a headline writer used the words
"democratic republic" as a title
caption to a letter. That is not
now and never has been our
form of government. However
the future is uncertain.
Our nation is a constitutional


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Staff Sergeant Thomas Bales,
Where does the real fault lie?
Now that the problem has
arisen in Afghanistan with the
killings there, we must look
where the real fault lies. This is a
more far reaching problem than
it first appears, and raises its
ugly head. First, they say he was
drinking, then they said he had
marital problems and finally fi-
nancial problems. All these state-
ments by the army brass to save
their rear ends. Do you recognize
this as pushing the blame some-
where other than where it
should lie? Absolutely In fact we
should have never been there.
Think back on the My Lai mas-
sacre of the Vietnam War. We
start seeing a pattern here. Of
course it's called Post Traumatic
Stress Battle Syndrome (PTSBS).
This man was deployed four
times, wounded more than once,
had serious brain injury and part
of a foot blown off. Now, I ask
you, who or what is really at fault.
Let's look back at previous
wars in the 20th century How
about WWI, no problems there.
WWII, those returning had no
problems even though there
were many who were prisoners
in Japan, Italy and Germany, plus
some survived the Bataan Death
March in the Philippines, and
those who had limbs amputated
in German prison camps. Bear in
mind, some of the men and
women were deployed for years
at a time. Not sent home for


OR&R and sent back, but for
years. I had an uncle who served
in Europe and he was gone most
of the war.
Then there was Korea, a so-
called police action. That's a
bunch of crap. I guess Ensign
Jesse L. Brown, the first black
Navy pilot killed, while flying
from the USS Leyte CV32, would
take umbrage with that. He
crashed landed near Hagru-LI,
after his plane was shot down by
ground fire. He posthumously re-
ceived the Distinguished Flying
Cross. Then there were the bat-
tlefield soldiers and other navy
men and marines who died in
Korea. In actuality Korea was
sort of an extension, although a
feared extension of WWII. We
were still gun shy WWII and
Korea were manned by men and
women from the last great gener-
ation. Yes, the last great genera-
tion. Having served aboard the
USS Leyte CV32, an aircraft car-
rier, for 2 1/2 years, during Korea,
I'm proud to say, I'm one of those
guys. When we put to sea it was
generally for six months and no
one was stressed out, before, dur-
ing or after.
Then there was Vietnam, the
drug war. I've never seen or
heard so much caterwauling as
those who were in Vietnam. I had
a son-in-law who was there for a
long time and he said it was a
war with drugs at every turn and
he was a victim. Fortunately, he
got cleaned up. Are you seeing


the pattern yet?
Then there was the first Iraq
war, if you want to call it a war. I
call it and the second Iraq war,
the Bush oil war. Finally the big
Iraq war and the war in
Afghanistan and Pakistan. Why
are we there? Because of a lying
president and vice president
after 9/11. And thus it was
handed down to President
Obama, and on and on and on.
So, who or what's to blame. A
decayed permissive society, that
puts more emphasis on which
new computer program is com-
ing out than the lives of troops on
the battlefield and even parents
concern for their children is al-
most non-existent. Remember,
everything starts in the home, pe-
riod! This society is disgusting.
There was a colonel quoted, in
another newspaper, as saying

you prefer. "Federal" means a
federation of states (united
states). Political power is sepa-
rated between the federal gov-
ernment and the states. Federal
power is divided among Con-
gress, the Executive branch, and
the federal court system.
At the end of the 1787 Consti-
tutional Convention, as he was
leaving Independence Hall, Ben-
jamin Franklin was asked "Well
Doctor, what have we got a re-
public or a monarchy?" He an-
swered: "A republic, if you can
keep it." None of the delegates
sought to be a king, not even
George Washington. Nor did they
intend to create a democracy led
by one party or one person.
James Madison, who drafted
the Constitution, defined a re-
public as a delegation of limited
powers to a few citizens elected
by all the rest in other words
government administered by
representatives chosen from
among the citizen voters.
By contrast in a democracy
people vote as an organized
whole to put the power of gov-
ernment in the hands of one
party, which is often led by a
supreme leader, such as Hugo
Chavez in Venezuela, Raoul Cas-


tro in Cuba, Vladimir Putin in
Russia.
Many countries claim to be re-
publics but are nothing more
than flawed democracies, in
which all the people can vote,
but a few political party leaders
wield the power.
The founders of the United
States of America considered
democracy a disgraceful idea.
They believed democratic gov-
ernment leads to mob rule, as it
did during the French revolu-
tion. In democracies leaders
often operate independent of the
legislatures, and stay in power by
buying votes.
Some folks believe not every
vote counts in our system of gov-
ernment. Not true. The founders
created a republic in which
every vote counts for election of
various representatives mem-
bers of the House, the Senate,
and the electoral college.
Currently, many Americans
are being led down a road to so-
cial democracy in the name of
fairness. Americans should be-
ware the temptation to exchange
our long and successful republic
for the Obama administration's
promises of social democracy
The elite leaders of democracies
are put in power and kept in
power by government depend-
ents until the nation goes broke,
as happened recently in Greece.
In this election year Ameri-
cans should heed Benjamin
Franklin's admonition: "A repub-
lic if you can keep it." Once lost,
no true republic has ever been
resurrected.

that the military wouldn't tolerate Ser-
geant Bales' actions. I wonder how many
of the high ranking officers lost their lives
or even served on the front lines. A minis-
cule few. If they were career military, they
looked out for themselves.
This society started decaying from the
very beginning of its founding a Republic,
which is very war like from its inception.
You say I'm rambling?
Nonsense, facts are facts. But, it seems
to have really gone down hill after the Ko-
rean War.
Sergeant Bales did a wrong thing, but is
he the only one really at fault? How many
officers and political leaders, had their
fingers on the trigger of that gun that night
and maybe more importantly, whose head
was in charge of Sergeant Bales that
night.
A multi-wounded, and multi-decorated
soldier, who it's been admitted had a se-
rious brain injury caused, through battle,
as well as losing part of a foot are respon-
sible for sending that man back, again and
again into battle with those debilitating
wounds,
Those above Sergeant Bales, must and I
repeat MUST, stand with him at trial, as
they too are just as guilty Murder is never
condoned. Even in civilian trials, accom-
plices are as guilty as the one who actu-
ally pulled the trigger. It should be no
different with the military In the end,
those of us who served will always re-
member there is always someone above
you who gives orders through the chain of
command.

As of 2010 estimated population of Mar-

2010 census, statistics demonstrates that
12,118 persons of Marion County's popu-

The basic programs offered at Florida
Center for the Blind are Vocational Reha-
bilitation/Transitional, Independent Liv-
ing, Orientation/Mobility, Braille and
Assistive Technology
Most of these programs are funded by
the Department of Blind Services at no
cost to our clients. We have been informed
by DBS that funding for 2012-2013 will be
reduced, placing further stress on our
program offerings.
A very small percentage of blind and vi-
sually impaired people are employed or
receiving job training/job opportunities.
Other significant needs are for cultural
activities such as, music lessons, art, pub-
lic speaking, etc.
The Center is interested in implement-
ing these programs that will enhance and
assist in improving the quality of life for
our clients.
In order to succeed in the important en-
deavor we need community support in do-
nations, corporate sponsors, job training,
and work opportunities.

It's my body, I'll exercise it if I have to


OUT



Lately, I have noticed
a lot of news regard-
ing all aspects of the
body. According to one re-
port I read, this is a multi-
billion dollar-a-year
business. I never knew my
body was worth so much
money I'm tempted to sell
it, or at least rent it out on a
part-time basis.
I did not know how big of
a deal this was until one
night this past week I had a
little trouble sleeping.
One reason I have trou-
ble falling asleep is my
deep fear of falling. Actu-
ally, it's not the fall that
worries me so much as that
sudden stop. For some in-


explicable reason I always
stop three inches past the
floor.
I would not worry so
much about falling asleep
if I knew I was going to fall
on my pillow instead of the
floor. However, I can't
count on anything these
days. Not even my fingers.
I once woke up in the
middle of the night en-
gaged in a vicious life or
death pillow fight. Unfor-
tunately, the pillow won
and I cannot find anyone to
take my case.
I did find one lawyer but
he was three-sheets-to-the-
wind and my case was no
breeze.
One fear I have in the
middle of the night is
falling into the hands of
some vicious nightmare
because of my horsing
around the day before. My
wife keeps nagging me
about my daytime activi-
ties but I have a hard time
harnessing these erratic
urges.
Often when I have trou-
ble going to sleep or when I
wake up in the middle of
the night and can't get back
to sleep I simply get up qui-
etly so as not to disturb the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage and turn on the


television. I once disturbed
her; when I came to, I
vowed never to repeat that
offense.
You would think with so
many channels on televi-
sion there would be some-
thing interesting to watch
in the middle of the night.
Something that would
make the time spent prof-
itable. Unfortunately, the
nighttime airwaves are de-
voted to things holding no
interest for anybody still
clutching to a slim strand
of sanity You do not have to
be crazy to watch nighttime
TV; it is just a consequence
of watching nighttime TV
What I do not under-
stand is why they run so
many infomercials for ex-
ercise equipment at two
o'clock in the morning.
Who in their right mind is
up that time of night?
I know I'm not.
Using my remote, I chan-
nel surfed for probably 20
minutes and found nothing
but people demonstrating
exercise equipment and
taunting me that I need to
begin an exercise regimen
if I am going to live a
healthy life. One man's
healthy life is another
man's pain in the back, the
knees and the elbows.

After all this exercise, I
only end up with a tennis
elbow and athletes foot.
Not only exercise equip-
ment, but also a good por-
tion of these infomercials
touts on the latest fad diet.
According to one commer-
cial I can lose all the
weight I want to lose in a
six-month period for only
six easy payments of $99
which they would gladly
charge to my credit card
account. "Call right now,"
they invite through the tel-
evision screen, "for this
special one-time offer"
This "special one-time
offer" is conveniently of-
fered every night. The only
weight being lost is from
my checking account. If
anyone ever had a gander
at my checkbook, they
would readily see that my
goose is cooked. Perhaps I
could start a new fad diet:
Cooked Goose. I could
market myself as the


"Cooked Goose Gourmet."
All this hype made me
hungry, so I raided the re-
frigerator and kidnapped a
tasty snack and immedi-
ately put it out of its misery
and into my middle-age
spread.
I say enough is enough. I
am tired of other people
telling me how to take care
of my body It takes all the
strength and energy I have
to drag my body from one
place to another, let alone
adding exercise to my daily
schedule.
For a person my age I get
plenty of exercise, more
than I really need. A typi-
cal day for me always in-
cludes a rigid exercise
regime; jumping to conclu-
sions, running my mouth
even when I'm told to be
quiet from You Know Who
and throwing my weight
around every chance I get.
After a full day of this, I am
thoroughly exhausted.
For my money, it's my
body and I'll exercise it if I
have to, thank you. How-


ever, right now, I have more
important things to do.
Places to go. People to see.
Experiences to enjoy
I can't think of any right
now, but anything is better
than some artificial exer-
cise program.
Who do you think I am?
Jack LaLanne?
With all this emphasis on
exercise, I wish some of
these people would exer-
cise the right to keep their
viewpoint to themselves.
In my opinion, the apos-
tle Paul had the right atti-
tude about all of this. I like
what he writes to a young
man by the name of Timo-
thy "For bodily exercise
profiteth little: but godli-
ness is profitable unto all
things, having promise of
the life that now is, and of
that which is to come" (1
Timothy 4:8 KJV).
The body exercised is no
substitute for the daily ex-
ercise of godliness. To ex-
ercise godliness is to make
the best possible use of
each day

Erin Go Bragh! St. Patrick's dance was huge success


John
Everlove


CHERRYWOOD



he Saint Patrick's
Day Dance was a
huge success this
year thanks to the hard
work of the volunteers and
the enthusiastic participa-
tion of the residents of
Cherrywood.
Rich Becotte was the
deejay, playing a mixture
of old favorites and Irish
melodies from the stage of
the brightly decorated
Clubhouse. He took re-


Ida Mahar collects her prize from Eve Houghtaling and
Rich Becotte at St. Patty's party.


quests and kept the music
going for the more than 70
residents who glided
across the dance floor.
Finger foods, desserts,
and snacks covered the
food table and were en-
joyed by all. Some people
brought their own food to
share with others and
everyone brought their
own libations.
"We've got an excellent
turnout and everyone is


having fun," Eve Houghtal-
ing said to me as we gath-
ered the Activities
Committee volunteers to-
gether for the group photo.
She was right. Smiles and
laughter were in abun-
dance but then we all know
what happens, "When Irish
Eyes Are Smiling."
Raffles and door prizes
were awarded with Ida
Mahar winning the big
prize of $25 and two others


winning $20 each. The
door prize; an herb garden
was won by Marguerite
Fiorenza. The proceeds of
the dance will replenish
the supplies of the Club-
house for future projects.
All in all, there were no
losers except maybe those
who didn't take advantage
of this night of fun and
friendship. Cherrywood's
Activities Committee vol-
unteers always put to-
gether a great time for
everyone to come out and
enjoy themselves. If you
are a new comer to Cherry-
wood, I urge you to take ad-
vantage of the many
opportunities offered
throughout the year.
Congratulations to Eve
and her committee for an-
other great night of enter-
tainment.
Veterans Club Meeting
Two major happenings
will take place on Thurs-
day, April 5 at 2 p.m. at the
Cherrywood Veterans Club
meeting. The first is final


nominations and election
of officers. This is a chance
for you to let your voice be
heard and to volunteer if
you'd like to serve in this
vital part of our commu-
nity
The second is the guest
speaker. Steve Jacobs from
the Marion County Veter-
ans Service Office will be
at the meeting to answer
questions; provide infor-
mation about vets' benefits
and discuss issues impor-
tant to the veteran commu-
nity
For those who are new to
Cherrywood, please accept
this open invitation to join
the Veterans Club. It costs
a whopping one ($1) whole
dollar for membership that
lasts for as long as you live
in Cherrywood.
Ladies St Patty's Luncheon
In keeping with the sea-
son, our ladies celebrated
St. Patrick's Day at the
monthly luncheon with
great food; great music and
great company on Wednes-


Dick Richards entertains
at Ladies Luncheon
day, March 14.
Rich Becotte played tra-
ditional Irish favorites for
the ladies as they dined on
a wide variety of home
made Irish and American
dishes that the ladies
brought. After lunch the
ladies ate an Irish Bless-
ings Cake provided by Zoe
Milnes.

CHERRYWOOD
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13


The door prize, a glitter-
ing green gift bag, was won
by Joyce Stacer. Sophia
Monchil and Geri Permyn
shared in the 50/50 win-
nings while joining in the
fun was birthday lady Ann
Bardak who had a lot of
help celebrating her spe-
cial day
A reading of Irish poetry
was done by six of the
ladies followed by Dick
Richards on his accordion
for a good old fashioned
sing-a-long. All in all the
ladies had a wonderful
time with the wide range of
entertainment, fun and ex-
cellent food.
The next Ladies Lunch-
eon will be on April 11 with
two special features going
on. First, it's the Easter cel-
ebration so the tables will
be decorated in a friendly
competition among the
ladies. Prizes will be
awarded for the best look-
ing table.
Second, Roy Mitchell
from SECO will be the
guest speaker. He will ad-
dress concerns for the up-
coming storm season and
how to protect yourself and
your home from these
sometimes destructive
forces of nature.
The time is noon and
every lady in Cherrywood
is encouraged to attend.
Just bring a table setting


and a favorite recipe to
share. You can bring a
drink of your choosing or
have coffee or lemonade at
the Clubhouse. It's quick
and easy and frankly; a
super time.

S.O.S.
No, it's not a distress call,
its breakfast time at Cher-
rywood. On March 31 from
9 to 10:30 a.m., the Veterans
Club will be serving a time
honored G.I. breakfast of
S.O.S. scrambled eggs,
sausage, toast, juice, fruit
cup and coffee or tea.
All you need is $3.50 for
a ticket and a healthy ap-
petite to enjoy this great
time and great food. Hurry
and buy your tickets from
Geri because this event is
always a sell out. You can't
beat the price; the food; or
the fellowship.
Fun in the Sun
On March 31, why not
make a day of it by going to
the Veterans Club break-
fast and then stick around
for the Fun in the Sun
Games. This is a terrific
event for participants and
for folks who just like to
watch, laugh, socialize and
cheer.
What is the Fun in the
Sun games? It's one of the
social highlights of the sea-


son for Cherrywood resi-
dents. Teams of four sign
up and pay a $10 registra-
tion fee, (That's just $2.50
per player) and then they
compete in four separate
events. Those events are
putting; horseshoes; bocce
ball and shuffleboard.
Each team member must
compete in at least two of
the four games.
Hot Dogs and beverages
will be available through-
out the games. This year,
Cherrywood Management
has donated 240 hot dogs.
As always, you can bring a
beverage of your own
choosing. (Note: Previ-
ously I reported that ham-
burgers were going to be
served but I was wrong.
Just hot dogs this time
around but they'll be good.)
At the end of the games,
gold, silver and bronze
medals will be awarded to
the first, second and third
place teams. The medals
are donated by Chris Zacco
and also cash prizes!
Our new residents are
especially encouraged to
come out on Saturday,
March 31 from 1 until 4
p.m. to experience a fan-
tastic time and to meet
your neighbors.
So, gather a team, see
Geri, Fred O'Hern or Rich
Hurley and pay the ten
bucks entry fee. If you don't
want to compete, just come
on out, enjoy the festivities
and root for your friends.

Photo Club focusing in
There's been a great deal
of interest expressed in the
Photo Club. We plan to
start meeting in April so if
you have any interest in
learning about cameras;
taking excellent pictures;
expressing yourself
through this medium or
any other aspect of photog-
raphy,
I encourage you to write
urperssec@yahoo.com or
contact Geri with your
name and number. This
should be an informative
and interesting club for all
shutterbugs.

Accordions and more
On Wednesday, March 28
in the Clubhouse, the Ac-


cordion Club will again
meet from 5:30 until 9 p.m.
As previously reported in
the Citizen, this is more en-
tertainment than you
would ever expect. You can
hear professionals and
novices; students and in-
termediate level players at
their best. Other instru-
ments join in and the
music is really terrific. If
you've never been to this
event, give it a try and be
totally surprised at the
quality and quantity of
music styles.
Yard sale
Cherrywood will hold its
community wide yard sale
on April 21 from 8 a.m.
until 1 p.m. This is a great


opportunity for all of Mar-
ion County to come and
shop for great bargains and
in addition, meet some of
the friendly folks who
make up Cherrywood Es-
tates.
Residents: Please put
your items out on the
morning of the sale. It's a
little early but well worth
the effort. We're expecting
a lot of guests.

Health Fair open to public
Everyone in the commu-
nity is invited to attend
Cherrywood's second an-
nual Health Fair. You must
have reservations because
of limited seating but if you

CHERRYWOOD
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15


Lenten season.
Traditionally, it brings
men and women together
for flirtatious fun and to get
to know each other. The
men sprinkle or douse the
women with water and tap
them gently with pussy wil-
low branches.
I don't know about you,
but that would mean a "di-
vorce" in my house.
On the following day,
Tuesday, as tradition
would have it, the women
get their revenge by throw-
ing crockery at the men.
Again, it doesn't sound like
a "Dr Phil" moment of
courting bliss to me but ap-
parently it works in


Poland.
Anyway, it is a fun holi-
day that is celebrated by
Polish people around the
world (especially in Buf-
falo N.Y) and here at Cher-
rywood. I doubt that there
will be much of the "play-
ful violence" that's a part
of the celebration but I do
know that it will be a great
time had by all who attend.
Music, a few polkas, some
libations and laughter are
all part of this celebration,
so reserve April 9 from 7
until 10 p.m. Check next
week's Citizen for more de-
tails and how to get tickets
for this super holiday
event.


Tampa Bay Downs
We're going to Tampa
Bay Downs on April 4 for a
fun day at the track. We
will be leaving the Cherry-
wood Clubhouse promptly
at 8:45 a.m., so please be on
time. As usual, we are close
to selling out this exciting
trip; there are only four
seats left so be sure to con-
tact Nancy Archer at 352-
861-1432 ASAP if you'd like
to go. Hope to see you
there.

Spotlight on Excellence
Each week we bring you a
glimpse of someone in our
community who has an in-
teresting past; a promising
future; or just makes Cher-
rywood a nicer place to
live. This week the spot-


light is on the president of
our Veterans Club, William
(Bill) Mahar
Bill has lived in Cherry-
wood for the past five
years. He's served on the
Social Committee and on
the board of the Veterans
Club for nearly that entire
time. Last year he became
president and has worked
tirelessly to serve all the
veterans of not only Cher-
rywood, but of Marion
County also.
Born in Oswego, N.Y Bill
was active in all of the
sports at his high school.
He played football, hockey
and basketball until his
senior year when a debili-
tating hip disease kept him
bedridden for nearly a
year. Several surgeries


later he was visited by the
principal who advised him
that while he had com-
pleted the course work for
graduation at home, his
lack of attendance would
keep him from graduating
with his class. A year later,
he walked the aisle and re-
ceived his diploma.
Bill was drafted and at
the "draft" physical, he
was rejected because of his
past medical condition;
three times in fact. Persist-
ent as Draft Boards can be,
he was called back repeat-
edly and after talking with
the Army Surgeon, he was
inducted into the U.S.
Army It was a good choice
for the Army because Bill
served for 22 years, retir-
ing in 1976 at the rank of
Sergeant First Class.
He served in Vietnam;
Germany; and at Fort Car-
son, Colorado, among sev-
eral other assignments,
some of which were and
still are, classified. Bill


began his military career
in the infantry but moved
to computers where he
served in many challeng-
ing roles as the Army up-
dated its logistical and
command and control sys-
tems.
Following his military
career, Bill took a job with
the Department of Defense
at Fort Carson in Colorado
Springs. He supervised the
transition to computeriza-
tion for the various divi-
sions. For example, the
Infantry needed different
software than the Engi-
neers and Bill was on the
front line of transitioning
various units to the latest
updates.
While working for D.O.D.
for over 20 years, Bill also
was Regional Governor of
the Sertoma club in Col-
orado Springs. These 12
clubs provided assistance
to the hearing impaired;

sale. Our meeting begins

socializing. Of course we
have the "sharing and car-
ing" table, plant raffle and
the 50-50. Any time you
have plants to share with
others bring them to Peggy
at the sharing table. Pat
Callahan can be reached if
you have any questions.
Her number is in the Oak
Run directory
The spring blooming
trees and shrubs look fab-
ulous. Remember to cut
back right after flowering
is over on these plants.
Also pinch any aggressive
azalea shoots too. Palms
need "special" fertilizer or
magnesium now for
healthy green color. Can-
nas left in the ground all
winter get crowded and
cause poorer blooming.
Dig up and split them. It's

Leisure






ARIES (March 21 to April
19) Put your restlessness to
good use by indulging the
Arian love of exploring new
places and seeking new
challenges. There also could
be a new romance waiting to
be "discovered."
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) A surprise message from
someone in your past could
lead to a long-awaited re-
union with a once-close
friend. Also, look for a work-
place problem to be re-
solved in your favor.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) Your self-confidence is
rising, and that should be a
significant factor in helping
you adjust to a new social
situation, as well as adjust-
ing to a series of changes in
the workplace.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Turnabout could be lots
of fun when someone who
previously accepted your
tender, loving care without
question now suggests that
he or she wants to start tak-
ing care of you.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Put the lessons you learned
from past disappointments
to work in planning your fu-
ture. The way ahead opens
to opportunities "purr-
fectly" suited to the adven-
turous Lion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept
22) This is a good time to
renew contacts with family
members and/or old friends
who somehow slipped off
your personal viewing
screen in recent years.
Travel also is favored.
LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
Most problems surrounding
that recent personal situa-
tion have been resolved, and
that means you should move
on to other things that are
important to you.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov.
21) Spend this weekend
recharging your physical
and spiritual energies.
When you return to your
workaday world, you'll be
ready to take on that new
project.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21) Be careful how you
advise a troubled friend.
Even your wise counsel
could be misunderstood.
Better to suggest that he or
she seek professional help.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to
Jan. 19) Family problems
once again dominate and,
once again, everyone seeks
your guidance in these mat-
ters. Later, you can indulge
in some much needed relax-
ation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to
Feb. 18) Some mixed signals
create confusion in the
workplace. Best advice: Ask
for explanations before you
attempt to deal with any of
these matters on your own.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March
20) A patch of roiling water
in the workplace could be
threatening, but stay the
course and you'll soon be
clear of it. Then go out and
have a great time with loved
ones.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your
extraordinary leadership
qualities mark you as some-
one people can turn to for
guidance in difficult situa-
tions.

Irish American Club
Our annual St .Patrick's Day celebra-
tion was so much fun!
Everyone enjoyed the Irish trivia con-
test and Pat Shane won the beautiful bas-
ket that was filled with Irish gifts. The
food catered by Royal Oaks was wonder-
ful!
Our spring event will be Thursday, May
3, centered around Hollywood movies
and TV shows. Tom Michaels of TM Pro-
ductions will serve as our DJ and Royal
Oaks will cater our dinner. Ticket sales
will be held on Wednesday April 18, from
9 to 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club lobby We
plan to have games and activities related
to our theme. More information to follow.
You don't have to be Irish to join but if
you like being around folks who enjoy fel-
lowship, fun, good food and music, we
have room for you in our club. You can
call Gloria Bartosik (352-873-6989) or Ann
Hubbard 352-(873-4755).
Fourth of July
The big day will be here before you


know it. Committees have been hard at
work preparing for the different activities
planned.
The day will begin with Oak Run's tra-
ditional parade and cool down. Put your
thinking caps on and figure out how you,
your club, your neighborhood can join the
parade. You can decorate yourself, your
bicycle, your golf cart, your motorcycle,
your car, your pet, your pogo stick, etc, and
proudly march down the boulevard pay-
ing tribute to our country's Independence
Day
The afternoon session is the eating and
fun time. There will be hamburgers, hot
dogs and more at Palm Grove beginning
at approximately 1 p.m. Various types of
games will be available for everyone's
participation.
The game committee is continually
looking for new ideas and volunteers to
operate them. If you have game sugges-
tions and/or, very importantly, would like
to volunteer to help out in any capacity,
call our event coordinator, Damian Ro-
mano, at 352-854-4840

On the Fourth of July, Oak Run wants to
honor all men and women who have
served in any branch of the service, in-
cluding the most recent conflicts. You do
not have to be a member of the Oak Run
Veterans' Association. If you have any vet-
eran visiting over the Fourth of July, Oak
Run wants to honor them at that time. If

Pine Run candidates provide information to community


BY HARRY UNGER,JR.
Special to the Citizen
On April 10, the annual elections of the
Pine Run Resident Association will take
place. As a preface to the election each
candidate has expressed his/her own rea-
son for running for office.
President
As for president, three candidates are
vying for this position, namely, Jean Put-
nam, Darlene Tobia Gravish and Sherry
Branham.
Jean Putnam states as follows: "I am
running for president of the PRRA Board
because of my experience on the board
since I lived in the community
I moved in Pine Run in 2007, and joined
the board during February 2008 serving
as a Phase director. I have since served as
recording secretary and second vice pres-
ident twice, chaired several holiday par-
ties, worked with the Entertainment
Committee and currently working with
the Bingo Committee and also published
the PRRA newsletter.
"I love the people in this community
and I would love to continue serving, and
making sure that activities are provided
that we all moved here to enjoy in our
golden years of retirement. I want to help
our by-laws and covenants committees
bring our documents into the 21 century"
Darlene Tobia Gravish states as follows:
"My main objective is to help the resi-
dents of Pine Run to make this a happy
and friendly place for all residents. I have
a wealth of experience and knowledge


PINE


from working with non-profit associations
for most of my adult life. Having worked
in management for many years, I bring
along the experience of having to deal
with many different personalities while
getting the job done and making it enjoy-
able at the same time. Give me your vote
and your opinion will count."
Sherry Branham states as follows: "My
name is Sherry Branham and I am run-
ning for Pine Run Estates' president be-
cause after 12+ years of living here my
time has come to "give back" to the com-
munity Like every group, we have our
challenges and I want to redirect the
focus back to 'community' through 'social,
cultural and recreational' function and let
all the other stuff go away forever. We
have strayed from what our purpose is to
be and as president, I will make good on
my word to return us to our true and sole
purpose according to our deed restric-
tions."
First vice president
There are two candidates for first vice
president, namely Larraine Imperato and
Pauline Cummings.
Larraine Imperato stated as follows: "It
is my desire to run for first vice president
because Pine Run is a great place to live.
I currently hold the position as president
of PRRA I served as first vice president
on the board for last three years. Further-


more, I have been a member of the En-
tertainment committee for four years, I
have diligently and actively work all
major functions.
"If I am elected, I will work with the
Board and the community to make Pine
Run a wonderful and enjoyable place to
live."
Pauline Cummings stated as follows:
"Pine Run has been my home for seven
years. In that time, I have held the posi-
tion of president and phase director on
the Board. For several years, I was chair-
man of bingo, senior games, shuffleboard
and kitchen. I also served as second vice
president of PROWL, our neighborhood
watch group. I would like to help and be
involved to keep Pine Run an active and
fun community"
Second vice president
There are three candidates for second
vice president, namely, Roy Linton, Glenn
Claiborne and Lorraine Brothers.
Roy Linton stated as follows: "We have
too many people who make a lot of noise
and get nothing done.
"We need to get the residents involved
again. If they are allowed to participate at
general meetings they will join in and
help. We do not need meetings that re-
quire you to sign up to speak. Things hap-
pen in a community more will attend
meetings and help. But they have to be
able to speak without signing up before
hand, when they have something to say
during the meeting and are not allowed -
our meetings have become a disgrace."
Glenn Claiborne stated as follows:


"Glenn Claiborne, formerly a recording
secretary 2010-11 and currently second
vice president 2011-12. I am running for
second vice president for the period 2012-
13.
"It is my desire to uphold the integrity
of the PRRA Board and to make certain
that the by-laws are adhered to by our res-
idents including all chair persons of PR
activities.
"I recognize that the Board has a duty
to maintain a fiduciary trust to our resi-
dents. I want to keep harmony in our com-
munity by making it possible that our
residents have a clear understanding of
what our Board is trying to accomplish
which should be beneficial to our com-
munity"
Lorraine Brothers stated as follows:
"My name is Lorraine Brothers, and I
have lived in Pine Run for approximately
18 years.
"I am running for second vice president
on the Pine Run Resident Association
Board, because I would like a say in what
goes on in my community I will appreci-
ate your vote. Thank you in advance, Lor-
raine Brothers."
Phase III director
There are two candidates running for
Phase III Director. One person submitted
a statement.
CarmelaVargas-Grant states as follows:
"I have lived in the Ocala area for seven
years and have been living in Pine Run
for three years going on four.

PINE RUN
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 20
I am currently volunteer-
ing at Munroe Regional Med-
ical Center in Prestige 55
since 2006.
This is a program for sen-
iors. You have probably seen
our magazine in Clubhouse I,
called "Prestige 55 Words to
the Wise Celebrating Life."
"I am running for Phase III
director at this time, because
I feel I could bring more to
my neighbors and give myself
the opportunity to get to
know them. I will represent
them for anything that they
wish to render on their be-
half to PRRA This will be a
good opportunity to meet and
greet other residents in Pine
Run. It is now a clean slate
with new candidates running
for several positions. and like
me, they all want to make a
difference in the community.
It is time to move on, make
this a better 55 community,
and especially a safe and
peaceful place, which for
some will be their last
home."
Hopefully, the statements
regarding the desire of each
candidate to run for office
will initiate a good turnout
for the two events, namely,
meeting the candidates and
the ultimate election,


Sports, birding, and the exciting Bonsai exhibit


BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD
(* 'lh-/j -.. t l i ',l i


Bonsai (pronounced bone-sigh)
is an ancient oriental horticul-
tural art form. It originally stared
in China centuries ago and
spread to Japan. The word "Bon-
sai" in the Japanese language lit-
erally means "tree-in-a-pot."
Originally developed in China al-
most 2000 years ago, today the
sublime art of bonsai is practiced
throughout the world. Shape, har-
mony, proportion, and scale are
all weighed carefully as art, and
the human hand, combines this in
a common cause with nature.
The Master the Possibilities
(MTP) Education Center and the
Marion Bonsai Society will host
their fifth annual Bonsai exhibit.
The exhibit will open on Wednes-
day, April 4, at 9 a.m. and close on
Friday, April 6 at noon at the MPT
main lobby, 8415 S.W 80th St.,
Ocala (On Top of the World).
Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Wednesday and Thursday and 9
a.m. until noon on Friday The ex-
hibit is free and open to the pub-
lic. Basics of the art of Bonsai
classes and demonstrations are
offered on Wednesday, April 4 at
1:30 p.m. and Thursday, April 5, at
1 p.m. To register for these
classes, go to www.masterthepos-
sibilities.com or call 352-854-3699
or visit the MTP office.


OTOW


Softball League
The Great Clips team continues
to hold a three game lead, though
they have faltered during the past
week. The team has not been
playing well, and if it continues,
the team lead may dwindle as the
other teams are beginning to play
better.
The Dr. Dunn team and The
Florida Eye team are now tied for
second. The Florida Eye team is
seemingly ready to make a move
back to the top. This coming week
could bring some excitement
when the Florida Eye team plays
against Great Clips. If the Florida
Eye team continues its momen-
tum, it could change the league
leaders. The Dr. Dunn team con-
tinues to hold on to second place,
but it has not played to its poten-
tial and could very well slip down
a notch if their playing doesn't im-
prove. As for the Tee Pee Tire
team, which is the youngest team
in the league, the team just can't
seem to muster up some wins,
and they continue to fall, while
the Cebert Wealth team has sur-
prisingly, been winning games
along with The Wise Way team,
which is trying to free itself from
the last place finish in which it


finds itself.
We will have to wait for this
coming week to see if there are
any new changes within the


ranks.

This is just a reminder that you
can buy tickets for the Theatre
Group's show at the Health &
Recreation Ballroom on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday morning
from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. The show
times for "Let's Murder Marsha"
are Friday, March 30 and Satur-
day, March 31 at 7 p.m. and Sun-
day, April 1 at 3 p.m. This is a
funny show, and we all need a
good laugh, so our Theatre Group
hopes to see you in the audience
on the day of your choice and also
hope you will bring a friend or
two. Ticket sales are going well,
so you should come and get your
ticket soon! Admission is $6 for
general seating and $8 for re-
served. What a bargain!
Bowling League
It has been a good month on the
bowling lanes, especially for the


Snowbirds. As stated last month,
this is the team to watch, which is
again in first place. The team's
standing is a result of good bowl-
ing versus members' averages it
is not a team of 200 plus average
bowlers' members simply bowl
well in relation to their averages.
A 120 average bowler who
bowls a 160 is every bit as effec-
tive as a 160 average bowler who
bowls a 200 both are 40 pins over
their average. With that in mind,
this month's report highlights
some bowlers who bowled at least
one game at least 50 pins over
their average in the past month.
Among the men, Elliott Wilkins
led with 75 pins, followed by 68
for Bill Shampine, 66 for Gerry
Vayko, 59 for Peter Vanarsdale
and 50 for Bob Sippin and Pete
Tomaselli. For the women, AJ.
Atwood led with a terrific 84 over
her average followed by 68 for
Helen Smith, 66 for Caroline
Caprano, 62 by Georgie Maguire,
and 56 by Rose Hamel.
Birding Outing
On March 29, the Unique Bird-
ers will be going to Crystal River
Preserve State Park for some
great bird watching. Members
will meet at the H&R parking lot
under the large tree at 7:30 a.m.
Robert Campbell will lead this
outing.Call Anne at 352-732-0706

Spring cleaning even takes place in Pun Alley


Dick
Frank


PUN


springtime is here.

Next week is Na-
tional Cleaning Week,
according to the Internet
site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly
Unknown Holidays. It's
time to do that spring-
cleaning, indoors to clear
out those winter cobwebs
and outdoors to get rid of
leftover leaves and
branches that blew down
during all the recent
winds. Accordingly, Pun
Alley has some clean sto-


ries for you.
Clean-up demands
Three men were brag-
ging about how they had
given their new wives du-
ties. Terry had told his wife
she would do all the dishes
and housecleaning. He
said that it took a couple
days but on the third day
the house was clean and
the dishes were washed
and put away
Jimmy bragged that he
had given his wife orders
that she was to do all the
cleaning, dishes and the
cooking. He told them that
by the third day, his house
was clean, the dishes were
done and there was dinner
on the table.
The third man had told
his wife that she was to
keep the house cleaned,
dishes washed, lawn
mowed, laundry washed
and hot meals on the table
for every meal. He said the
first day he didn't see any-
thing, the second day he
didn't see anything, but by
the third day most of the


swelling had gone down
and he could see a little out
of his left eye, enough to fix
himself a bite to eat, load
the dishwasher, fill the
washing machine and mow
the lawn.
No bull about it
An Indian walked into a
cafe with a shotgun in one
hand pulling a buffalo with
the other. He said to the
waiter, "Want coffee."
The waiter replied,
"Sure, Chief. Coming right
up." He got the Indian a
tall mug of coffee. The In-
dian drank the coffee in
one gulp, turned and
blasted the buffalo with the
shotgun causing parts of
the animal to splatter
everywhere and then he
just walked out.
The next morning the In-
dian returned with his
shotgun and another buf-
falo. He told the waiter,
"Want coffee."
The waiter said, "Whoa!
We're still cleaning up your
mess from yesterday What
was all that about, any-


way?"
The Indian smiled and
proudly said, "Training for
position in United States
Congress. Come in, drink
coffee, shoot the bull, leave
mess for others to clean up,
disappear for rest of day"

Dustings
In hindsight, holding a
ticker-tape parade to
honor our city's street
cleaning crew was proba-
bly a bad idea.
My idea of cleaning the
house is sweeping the floor
with a glance.
A man opened a dry-
cleaning business next
door to a convent. He
knocked on the door and
asked the Mother Superior
if she had any dirty habits.
She is a wonderful
housekeeper. Every time
she divorced she kept the
house.
All these dry cleaning
storeowners were gath-
ered together to hold a
press conference.
The Janitor's Union has


been cleaning up after im-
plementing sweeping re-
forms.
People in the dry clean-
ing business do not believe
in a free press.

Help!
Smith went to see his su-
pervisor in the front office.
"Boss," he said, "we're
doing some heavy house-
cleaning at home tomor-
row, and my wife needs me
to help in the house and
garage, moving and haul-
ing stuff."
"We're short-handed,
Smith" the boss replied. "I
can't give you the day off."
"Thanks, boss," said
Smith "I knew I could
count on you."

Well organized
The husband was always
telling his wife that house-
keeping would be a snap if
only she would organize
her time better. Recently
he had a chance to put his
theory into practice while
she was away


When a neighbor
stopped in to see how he
was managing, he boasted,
"I made a cake, frosted it,
washed the kitchen win-
dows, cleaned all the cup-
boards, scrubbed the
kitchen floor, walls and
ceiling and even had a
bath." Then he added
sheepishly, "When I was
making the chocolate frost-
ing, I forgot to turn off the
mixer before taking the
beaters out of the bowl, so I
had to do all the rest."

How's that?
One day a housework-
challenged husband de-
cided to wash his
sweatshirt. After he
stepped into the laundry
room, he shouted to his
wife, "What setting do I use
on the washing machine?"
"It depends," she
replied. "What does it say
on your shirt?"
He yelled back, "Florida
State University."
Dick and his wife Jane
live in Oak Run.

bland Indiana
On a snowy


Eve in 1937 the pair set out
with three dollars between
them, enough in a Village
bar for a martini apiece
every hour until midnight.
Enter Tinker Grey, a suc-
cessful young banker with
cinematic good looks and
enough charm to make the
Pat roommates instant adver-
Wellington series. In black tie and
cashmere coat this prince
with "royal blue eyes"
stands the girls to drinks
and produces a chilled bot-
tle of Champagne as 1938
rolls in. In hindsight the
evening will be a turning
point for all three. Katey
CIVILITY observes, "Life doesn't
wles have to provide you any op-
ays this is a tions at all. It can easily de-
t novel that's fine your course from the
rical portrait outset and keep you in
lattan, and a check through all manner
fiction about of rough and subtle me-
ifted young chanics. To have even one
Two beauti- year when you're pre-
ominate the sented with choices that
rooklyn-born can alter your circum-
Katey, and stances, your character,
nd Eve Ross, your course that's by the
m a wealthy, grace of God alone. And it
family shouldn't come without a
New Year's price."


Like a male Cinderella,
Tinker Grey leaves behind
his gold engraved cigarette
lighter, which keeps the
door open for future trysts.
From the beginning the
chemistry seems clearly
between Katey and Tinker.
But a serious car accident
changes all that.
As the driver, Tinker is
consumed with guilt at
Eve's disfiguring injuries,
although a milk truck was
at fault.
He insists that she re-
cover at his luxurious
apartment on Central Park
West. While that relation-
ship heats up, Katey rises
from a mere cog in a secre-
tarial pool to a high-profile
position as assistant at a
trendy new Conde Nast
magazine.
Years elapse, and then in
1991 at the Museum of
Modern Art Katey and her
husband glance at Walker
Evans photographs of the
1930s and there she spots
Tinker Grey in one of
them.
For Ocala's many trans-
planted New Yorkers, the


place names, the streets,
the general nostalgia of
1930s Manhattan should in-
trigue.
For other readers the
preponderance of descrip-
tion over plot and action
maybe a bit too much. Still,
it's a compelling story
Pat Wellington is a re-
tired English professor,
freelance writer, and fac-
ulty member of On Top of
the World's Master the Pos-
sibilities, who shares her
passion for books with oth-
ers.

serving high school stu-
dents and helped repair
houses for the poor. He was
proud of his accomplish-
ments with that organiza-
tion
Throughout his careers,
Bill has been blessed with
the companionship and
support of his beautiful
wife Ida. They met at a
party when Bill was on a


"Pass" and then didn't see
each other for several
months. When reunited,
they dated, got engaged
and then married. That
was 56 years ago.
Ida and Bill have three
children; a daughter and
two sons. Daughter Shan-
non Scott and son Bill (not
a junior) live in Colorado
and son Patrick resides in
Las Vegas, Nevada. The


two enjoy visiting their
children; six grandchil-
dren and two great grand-
children as often as
possible with trips back to
Colorado Springs and
Vegas.
He laughing describes
how he left Colorado
Springs to come to Florida.
He had to dislodge his
motor home from chest
deep snow banks. After
changing the batteries in
the vehicle, he was able to
start it and free it from the
ice. He and Ida headed for


Florida and never looked
back.
Bill loves his work with
the Veterans Club. "Bring-
ing in speakers that ad-
dress the needs of Veterans
through Veterans Benefits
and Veterans Services is a
priority." Bill said when we
spoke. He also enjoys the
"shooting trips" and work-
ing on all of the other proj-
ects and activities of the
Veterans Club.
Plans are under way to
bring in more members to
the Veterans Club and Bill
