As of last May, anyone newly applying for Social Security, Veterans Affairs or other federal benefits will need to choose an electronic payment method paper checks will no longer be an option. People currently receiving their federal benefits by paper check must switch to direct deposit by March 1, 2013. Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios highlighted the savings to taxpayers by ceremonially writing a check to American taxpayers in the amount of $1 billion. More than 18 million baby boomers are expected to reach retirement age during the next five years, with 10,000 people a day becoming eligible for Social Security benefits, said Rios. It costs 92 cents more to issue a payment by paper check than by direct deposit. We are retiring the Social Security paper check option in favor of electronic payments because it is the right thing to do for benefit recipients and American taxpayers alike. The Treasury Department published a final rule in December 2010, to gradually eliminate paper checks for federal benefit payments. In addition to the taxpayer savings, electronic payments are safer and more convenient than paper checks. Last year alone, more than 540,000 Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) paper checks were reported lost or stolen and had to be replaced. On Jan. 31, 1940, Ida Mae Fuller received the first monthly Social Security benefit check and, to date, about 165 million people have received Social Security benefits. The movement toward electronic payments has been steadily increasing. According to the 2010 Federal Reserve Payments Study, electronic payments now make up over three-quarters of all noncash payments nationwide. There were 5.7 billion fewer checks written in 2009 than in 2006, a decline of 6.1 percent per year while electronic payments grew 9.3 percent during that same period. Among federal benefit recipients, approximately eight in 10 receive their Social Security or other federal benefit payment electronically. The Treasury Departments public education campaign provides information to Americans about the change to how federal benefit payments are being delivered and makes it easy for current check recipients to switch online at www.GoDirect.org or by calling a toll-free helpline. Switching from checks to direct deposit is fast, easy and free at www.GoDirect.org, by calling the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Centers toll-free helpline at 1-800-333-1795, or by speaking with a bank or credit union representative. 28 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Feds say the check wont be in the mail Why did the golf cart cross the road? To get to OTOW amenities 80th and 80th to get traffic light BY JIM CLARK Editor People in Indigo East will finally be able to join their fellow On Top of the World residents in traveling to their activities and amenities by golf cart. However, drivers on Southwest 80th Avenue will have to contend with another traffic light on the high-speed, two-lane road. In conjunction with a new traffic light to be installed shortly, the residents have obtained a Marion County Commission revision of an ordinance that will allow them to cross Southwest 80th Avenue at the Southwest 80th Street intersection. The county ordinance currently restricts the use of golf carts on public streets outside developments. Indigo East is east of 80th Avenue, while the majority of OTOW activities take place west of the avenue. Included in the activities on the west side of the road are the festivals and events that take place at Circle Square Commons and the Cultural Center. The logical crossing point is 80th Street, but the speed limit on the avenue is 55 mph, and there are curves just to the north and just to the south of that intersection, meaning that crossing without a traffic light would be hazardous. The contingent of Indigo East residents who attended the meeting Tuesday morning at the McPherson Complex broke out in applause when the motion was approved. Officials from OTOW, which is installing the light, said the work on the intersection should begin shortly. Materials have been ordered. The only doubt raised was by Commissioner Carl Zalak, who said he has received similar requests from people in northern communities, including Ocala Palms, and that this decision could open the door to many other exceptions. It was stated that the requests would have to be taken up on an individual basis. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThe view looking west from the intersection of Southwest 80th Avenue and 80th Street.

Horns blew and people cheered and clapped when Raymond Kukla kissed the bride he had not seen in months on a busy street in Bay City, Mich. Married April 22, 1946 in Germany, after Kukla received permission from the U.S. Army to marry Jean, a Polish-born woman who had had been taken as a prisoner of war by the Germans, it was months before both were reunited on American soil. A resident of Warsaw, Poland, Jean had joined the Polish Underground when she was 14-years-old in hopes of protecting her war-torn city from future destruction. Orders for the soldiers serving in the underground were coming from Polands pre-war government, in exile in London. The small ill-equipped Polish Army hid in basements and fought with the bare hands until they surrendered to the Germans after realizing that the Russians were not going to come to their aid, Jean Kukla recalled. After liberation by American soldiers, a Polish camp was set up across from the American Camp. The camps were separated by volleyball courts and a swimming pool. It was on those courts that the American soldier and the Polish woman met. We were better players and we beat the men, Jean said, noting that volleyball had been a popular sport in the pre-war days of Poland. During their courtship there were language barriers to overcome. While Jean spoke her native Polish and had learned French and German in school, she didnt speak English. Kukla spoke English and a smattering of Polish. Their friendship flourished and Kukla extended his stint in the service for three-months. But when Kukla proposed marriage Jean was not sure if she should say yes. She sought the advice of an older woman, who said marry the nice young man. There was red tape for the couple to overcome before they could say, I do. Kukla first spoke to his commanding officer who agreed to write a letter on their behalf to Army headquarters. The Army eventually agreed but said the marriage could not take place for three months after receipt of the letter. The couple was first wed in a civil ceremony and then in a Catholic Church they were both raised in the Catholic faith after the Lenten season had passed. It was a festive occasion with a roasted pig, Cognac from France and the couple exchanging vows in their Army issued uniform. Weeks later Jean joined about 30 other young women that had married American GIs and started her trip to the United States. The trip included staying in Paris for several months before going into England and then crossing the Atlantic. Kukla remained behind in Germany still an enlisted man. She passed through immigration in New York City and then went on to Michigan. A woman from the American Red Cross traveled with the women helping them find their way. Finally at Bay City, Michigan, Jean was met by Kuklas parents. I knew it was them when we pulled into the station. Ray looked just like his dad, Jean said. Kuklas mother was relatively fluent in Polish, so the two women were able to communicate well. A bridal shower was planned for Jean so she could meet others of Kuklas family. With many duplicated gifts received, the two women decided to head into town to exchange some presents. It was the same afternoon that Kukla returned to his familys home to surprise his bride and parents only to find no one home. A neighbor told him that they had gone to town. The impatient Kukla boarded a bus to town. We were waiting at the bus stop when he got off at the stop across the street, Jean said who still gets emotional remembering the reunion. The young couple eventually moved to Detroit, had three children, Kukla worked for General Motors, and Jean became a nurse. For their 25th wedding anniversary, the couple toured Europe visiting the many places that had been significant in their lives. Earlier this month their neighbors and friends from Pine Run helped celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary.

OBITUARY On Saturday, May 12, letter carriers throughout Marion County will participate in the 20th annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) National Food Drive to Stamp Out Hunger. This annual effort has become the largest one-day food drive in the nations history, resulting in more than a half billion pounds of food to local food banks, pantries and shelters in all 50 states. Last year in Marion County, 278,500 pounds of nonperishable food was collected and donated to Interfaith Emergency Services for distribution to the Salvation Army, Brothers Keeper, St. Theresas Catholic Church and the Help Agency of the Forest food banks. The Ocala Post Office was ranked first in the nation in their union member category for the fifth year for the communitys outstanding effort in supporting this program. In Marion County alone, more than one million pounds of food has been collected. Postal customers are asked to hang a food donation on their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers the mail on Saturday, May 12, and the carrier will do the rest. Collection barrels will also be set up at all Post Office branches to accommodate those with Post Office Boxes. For individuals interested in volunteering for the collection and unloading/loading, please call Thomas Curtis at 352-572-5634. Service hours for high school students are available. United Way of Marion County, USPS, Campbells, Valpak, Feeding America, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association and AFLCIO have partnered with the NALC to help stamp out hunger.

Their show is jam-packed with dazzling, high-energy choreography, impeccable harmonies and those timeless Motown grooves that everyone knows and loves.

Her love of grief an obsession over the death of her mother, the Duchess of Kent, distracted her from her husbands serious illness that led to his premature death at 42 in 1861. Her hysterical reactions to any bad news about Alberts condition prompted attending physicians to lie to her or soften any troubling turn of events. Thus, his unexpected death left her inconsolable and vowing to wear widows weeds until her death, a vow she kept for 40 years. Ironically, it was Alberts demise that finally made Victoria a queen to be reckoned with. In a letter to the King of Prussia she declared her life was over: For me, life came to an end on 14 December. My life was dependent on his. I had no thoughts except of him; my whole striving was to please him, to be less unworthy of him! Originally, Albert had been considered by the English as a German interloper. At court he was forbidden to see dispatches or even be present when the queen met her ministers. But in time his influence increased over affairs of state which bored Victoria. Added to that was her incapacity during nine pregnancies. Although he worked hard the simple truth was that he assumed power simply by sharing a bed with the queen. The nation went into an immediate state of protracted mourning. Victorias entire court dressed in black including fouryear-old Princess Beatrice. All festivities of any kind were canceled for indefinite periods, greatly irritating Charles Dickens, whose upcoming speaking event had been sold out. At first the nation sympathized with the queen but as she secluded herself for most of the year in Balmoral Castle in Scotland, neglecting her duties and shunning her people, resentment grew. Only a blunt, down-to-earth John Brown, groomsman, selfappointed bodyguard and eventually constant companion was able to coax her out of a decade of isolation. That and the near death of her eldest son Bertie seem to shake her alive. The woman who had lavished her devotion on Albert the man and tried to find justice for him in death was ready to return as queen to one-fifth of the worlds population. A magnificent read that makes readers long for more. Pat Wellington is a retired English professor, and freelance writer.

Daphne works at Stein mart along with offering an airport shuttle service. The two stay busy with not only their work but with the caring for their animals and their hobbies. Rica and Destin are the Delaneys two dogs. Rica was rescued from a trash dump and Destin was a refugee from Hurricane Katrina. They found a loving home and loving hands to care for them and they know it. The two puppies are affectionate, gentle and will become lap dogs once theyve been introduced to strangers. Not content with just taking care of their dogs, Tim and Daphne have also been known to take care of stray cattle. Because they live adjacent to the pasture, occasionally, a cow will get loose and graze on their front or back lawn. Its not unusual for Tim to come home and have to guide the animals back through the gate so they can rejoin the rest of the herd. One day, Daphne and Tim found a baby calf in their yard. Apparently the mother cow had died during childbirth because the little one was alone and scared. For a few days, until they could get a hold of the owner, they took in the orphaned infant. With advice from a veterinarian they purchased special formula and bottle fed the baby cow. Providing warmth, food, and loving care, they were able to save the wobbly legged youngster until the owner came and retrieved it. Their love is not only limited to animals however. Two years ago they went on a Christian Mission and returned to Daphnes native village of Puerto Cabezas. In cooperation with their Church, they brought $15,000 worth of food, clothing and other much needed supplies to the poor in that town. Especially in need of their help were the children of the village. That moment touched Daphne and Tim so much that they plan a return visit. Parents of Tim, John and Jeanne, live in Oak Run. His sister, Kathy lives in Syracuse and another sister, Julie, resides in Coral Springs. Daphnes folks, Roe and Carson, live in North Carolina and she has an aunt in West Palm Beach. Family get-togethers are frequent and fun. Biking and skiing are two of Tims favorite hobbies. While Florida offers few opportunities for skiing, he takes part in at least two races per year. The course he rides is 48 miles long so its quite a work out. He used to do 100 mile races but has toned that back in recent years. Everyone who knows Tim and Daphne say the same thing about them; They are the nicest people youll ever meet. Always a smile on his face, Tim feels richly blessed to have all that he and Daphne share here in Cherrywood; warm weather, light traffic, a good business and most of all, great people.

A RIE S ( March 21 to April 19) A sudden change of plans could lead to a misunderstanding with a friend or family member. Be ready to offer a full explanation of your decision. A past favor is returned. T AU R US ( April 20 to May 20) Expect pressure from those who want you to change your position on a matter of importance. However, the determined Bovine will be able to withstand the bullying and win out. GE M I N I ( May 21 to June 20) Its time to stop dwelling on past disappointments and move on to other possibilities. By weeks end, youll be meeting new people and making new plans for the future.

Meanwhile, an opportunity opens up that can lead to a lot of traveling later on.

BY DWAYNE CLARK I think of myself as being educated in recognizing the signs of dementia. After all, I have been around people diagnosed with dementia for most of my life. I have probably met, assessed or observed over 10,000 dementia residents in the last three decades. Certainly I could quickly identify and recognize when someone was having signs of dementia. Well, that is what I thought. In 2000, it wasnt unusual for me to call my mom and chat 2-3 times a week. As a self-confessed mommas boy, I was always concerned about mom. During one of those phone calls, I could tell my mom was upset. She had accused the housekeeper of stealing some of her jewelry. I was mad at the housekeeper and ready to defend my moms position. Two days later, my sister found the jewelry in a box under my moms bed. A week later, I was having another phone conversation with my mom, this time she said the housekeeper was taking her car for joy rides, so she fired her that day. Again, I spoke with my sister who held the keys to moms car and said it had not been moved in a month. Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com I f you are self-employed or retired youve already sent to the IRS your first estimated tax payment for 2012 real money based on income you havent received yet. Meanwhile, living nearby are some of the 46 percent of Americans who paid no taxes for 2011 and are unlikely to pay any in 2012. Our system of taxation is mysterious and corrupt. Tax laws are called a code because theyre supposed to be understandable rules for collection and payment of taxes. In reality our tax laws and IRS rulings are 70,000 pages of Washington gobbledygook, which include hundreds of loopholes. The Tax Code is a deceptive game of hide-in-plain-sight. One of my favorite deceptions was a politically influenced ruling that millions in earnings from a worldwide tour by a famous performer should be treated as profits from an investment of her body and voice, and taxed at the lower rate of capital gains. Depending on whom you know, warbling around the world in grand style can be construed as risk-taking. On the other hand singing Saturday night at a local nightclub to earn a few extra bucks on weekends is taxed at the higher rates of ordinary income. Some giant corporations also pay less tax than others for reasons not intended to be understood by ordinary taxpayers. Its all part of the game of politically preferred treatment for friends and supporters. How can we fix the goulash we refer to as the U.S. Tax Code? The only intelligent answer is to deposit the code, rulings, and forms 1040 AtoZ in a recycle trash bin and start anew. An attempt by Congress to reform the current tax code would most likely result in adding goo to the same old stew. There are a number of alternative ideas for raising revenue to run the government. Many European countries have a valueadded tax (VAT) on production. Its easy to collect and difficult to defraud, but it doesnt do away with all other taxes, and it tends to encourage bigger government. Then theres the Fair Tax, a national retail sales tax with refunds to help the less fortunate. Its almost as complicated as our present tax code. A fair tax bill has been gathering dust in Congress for more than a decade. Our favorite is a Flat Tax on all income, regardless of source salaries, benefits, bonuses, dividends, interest, inheritances, capital gains, gambling, lotteries and profits. Our vision is a tithe (ten percent) from income above the poverty level and from business profits. All citizens and business beneficiaries should have a financial stake in the success and well being of the nation. Editor, columnist, and television host Fareed Zakaria suggested playfully that the logical remedy for our corrupt and complex tax system would be a twopage tax code, with no room for loopholes, preferences, credits, exemptions, and exceptions. Theres a bumper sticker which describes a two-page Flat Tax: If 10% is enough for God, its enough for the IRS. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 O ver the past few years, its been obvious that some people have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Those of us who have websites and e-mails have been part of the effort to educate the public on the use of electronics. Now the federal government is getting in the act. As you can read elsewhere, beginning March 1, 2013, the feds will get rid of all paper checks for benefits, including Social Security. No longer will you be rushing to your mailbox on a certain day of the month to get that check and take it to the bank. You will have a choice. You can either get direct deposit into a checking or savings account or, absent both of those, you can get a prepaid debit card. This will apply to more government benefit checks besides Social Security. A complete list is in the story that starts today on Page 1. Frankly, its hard to understand why anyone would not want direct deposit. The report of stolen or lost checks, especially Social Security, is astronomical. There is also the convenience of knowing that if you are temporarily unavailable, if youre sick or out of town, your money keeps flowing into your account, even if youre not there to cash a check. One thing that hasnt been mentioned much, as near as we can find out, is the effect on the U.S. Postal Service. Is this going to be costly to the postal people, who are going to lose a lot of business? Some might say they want to continue to use cash, and thats why they cash their Social Security check every month. Thats fine. Now you can cash one of your own checks every month and still get the cash. A debit card, of course, is just as good. You take your prepaid debit card to the store, pay for your items, and theres always a little question on the keypad: Do you want cash back? Thats how many of us get cash now without even bothering to go to the bank. If youre one of the 90 percent of Social Security recipients who already get direct deposit, nothing will change. But if youre in that other 10 percent, get ready for some changes. And please, keep the kicking and screaming down. It doesnt become you at all. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

I f you've ever watched the television show "Law and Order," you've seen scenes from the Appellate Court and the state Supreme Court where both sides make their oral arguments. They stand in front of a podium which has three small lights, green, yellow and red, well in sight of the speaker. When he starts, the green light is on. When time is almost up, the yellow light comes on, and when time is up, the red light glows, and the lawyer immediately says thank you and sits down. Unfortunately, such discipline doesn't seem to apply to County Commission meetings. The county now has these little lights on the podium where members of the audience speak to the group. Those who took the trouble to get on the agenda ahead of time get five minutes. The others who wish to speak unannounced at the meeting get two minutes each. At last Tuesday's County Commission meeting, two speakers who did not get on the agenda stood up to speak, both about the taxing situation with Munroe Regional Medical Center. The first man spoke for 9 minutes and 8 seconds, and the second for 6 minutes and 30 seconds. One man got up after that and thanked the commissioners for not shutting off the speakers at the red light. We disagree. While people should have their say, they should have enough discipline to follow the rules. The commissioners should also have the fortitude to follow their rules and force spectators to abide by them. What's going to happen at the May 1 meeting if several people get up to speak and each one talks for six or nine minutes. The meeting could take forever, and now a precedent has been set. The commissioners won't be able to do anything about it, since they didn't enforce the rules this time around. Both speakers about the hospital made very good points, items that the commission should follow up on. And the commissioners should be praised for the fact that, unlike the School Board, they let the public speaker portion of the meeting be televised, even if the TV channel can't get the schedule straight (the digital schedule on Cox said it was a School Board meeting on TV that night). So a lot of things were done right. But let's streamline the process by following the rules, or let's change the rules so everyone knows where they stand.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

I told my sister that this housekeeper was a real problem and seemed to be taunting Mom. My sister offered the thought that mom was becoming more forgetful and was starting to get up in the middle of the night and to have conversations with her sister who had passed away two decades earlier. My immediate inclination was that my mother was dehydrated. She must not be drinking enough water, and that was causing her to be confused. Or maybe it was a change of medication, and there was some drug interaction that could explain her behavior. My sister, hearing my diagnosis, took mom to see her doctor. Then I got the call from my sister that I dreaded. The doctor said mom was showing signs of dementia. Even though a medical professional had given this diagnosis, I still didnt want to believe it. Did he do a full blood work up, I asked? Did he do a urinalysis to see if she is dehydrated? I was sure that my mom had just suffered a momentary setback that could easily be explained. But it wasnt to be. From that day forward, her condition began to deteriorate. At first, my sister cared for her on her own. Then we hired staff to care for her in her home, and finally, she moved into one of my assisted living residences. She had become one of my customers. I missed all the signs I should have seen: Accusing people of stealing personal items. Speaking to relatives who have passed away as if they are still alive. Forgetting close family members names or memorable events. Fearing to go out after dark. Difficulty finding words. I wanted my mom to be the person I knew my whole life. I didnt know this new person, so I didnt want to acknowledge or recognize the disease. My own psyche wouldnt allow for my mom to be sick or take on symptoms of a disease I knew so well. As family members, we take on our own sense of denial about Alzheimers. We think that, by failing to acknowledge it, it will somehow go away. But it doesnt. Its calling gets louder and louder until you are forced to listen. My mother was put on a medication called Aricept soon after her diagnosis, and her condition improved in the short term. The best thing we can do as family members is to watch for what is normal and then make sure we give in to the reality of what possible decline might be, if not for us, then for them. Dwayne J.

As it stands right now, I see no way this man will get a fair trial, since he has already been convicted with calls for his prosecution. Frankly, I dont believe any of the above hypocrites are that interested in this shooting other than self promotion and to put our States Stand Your Ground Law under the national microscope to have it modified or outright repealed. Numerous articles have already appeared regarding the increase in the number of criminals shot to death by armed individuals who were protecting themselves from said criminals. I guess these troublemakers would be happier if the innocent victim were injured or killed. Go back to your state, we can take care of Florida, give the system a chance to work, and stop causing more problems. Wayne Rackley Ocala Saving jobs vs. creating jobsWhy isnt saving jobs considered the same as creating jobs. Is it because the unemployed people dont count to the states, only their current work force seems to matter? When President Obama gave a trillion dollars back to the states to use to create jobs, the states used this money to shore up their own budgets and keep their own people working rather than creating new jobs. These same states who used this money to pay state employees to remain on the payroll rather than create jobs and employ new people. The focus is to blame the president for what the states did in not creating new jobs but rather they used this money to protect themselves and their budget. The president still gets the blame for not creating jobs and the states look like heroes. There is no credit given to this administration for just saving jobs because these people were already working and their saved jobs dont seem to count in this terrible economy. We are not using stimulus money to create jobs but just to remain with the status quo of staying even. The business community has already created all the jobs they planned on creating, they just happen to be in foreign countries. Jerry Segovis Ocala BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen T he Obama administration argued to the U.S. Supreme Court recently that people must be compelled to buy medical insurance (designed by the government) or the national medical-insurance market will fail. Thus, Obamacare advocates say, the insurance mandate is consistent with the powers delegated under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The argument, however, contains a fatal flaw. If the medicalinsurance market would indeed fail without a mandate, its only because of other mandates the government has already imposed. Thus the government has created the rationale for an extension of its own power. The administration foresees two problems in the absence of the mandate. First, uninsured people will avoid routine and preventive medical care and go to hospital emergency rooms when they cant delay care any longer, raising costs to others. Second, some people will apply for insurance only after they are seriously ill. As a result, the insurance market will be dominated by sick people, making it unviable. Both problems are government creations: emergency rooms by law must treat everyone regardless of ability to pay, and new laws are increasingly restricting insurance companies right to refuse to cover preexisting conditions or to charge already sick people more. Thus it is the regulatory regime that makes the insurance market fragile. Furthermore, the emergencyroom issue is overstated. As Shikha Dalmia points out, such care is a bare 3 percent of total medical spending, less than the retail sectors loss from shoplifting. But even ignoring that point, a free and prosperous society would have charity hospitals and practitioners eager and able to help the relative few who could not afford care. A must-serve mandate is unjustified and unnecessary. The principal issue is insurance regulation. Imagine if you could purchase home insurance and demand payment after your house burned down, or if you could buy an auto policy and collect after an accident. Such coverage after the fact would not be true insurance, which is a hedge against uncertainty. Under those rules, insurers would exit the market for more profitable activities. Medical insurance is no different. For the industry to be viable, companies have to collect premiums while people are healthy in order to have the money to pay out when they get sick. Doesnt that prove the mandate is needed? No. In a free society, people would have natural incentives to buy insurance when they are healthy. Government destroys those incentives. How so? Young, healthy people of course will always be tempted to put off buying medical insurance. But this temptation would be reduced if we abolished all the government rules and privileges that make medical care and hence insurance artificially expensive. In myriad ways, government raises the cost of medicine: restrictive licensing, anti-competitive state insurance cartels, benefit mandates, and much more. All such interventions price people out of the medical market by making products and services more costly than they would be in a free and competitive marketplace. Government also raises prices to the uninsured by maintaining policies that insulate people with insurance from the true costs of their decisions. The income tax, which doesnt count non-cash compensation as income, makes otherwise uneconomical insurance attractive, while creating an illusion of free or nearly free services.

Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com are to indicate that insurance which covers volitional activities, such as the use of contraception, physical exams, and other preventive services, is not truly insurance.) When explicit prices are artificially lowered under an insurance illusion, people are less cost-conscious and thus consume more services than they would have. Much medical care is elective and nonessential, but under our government-shaped system, rather than asking, Do I need it and how much? people ask, Does my insurance cover it? This raises real costs for all, but it especially raises prices to people who have no insurance or who would buy it in the individual market, discouraging them from doing so. As a result, fewer young and healthy people pay premiums, weakening the insurance industry. This is purely a government-created problem. Government mandates are backed by aggressive force, which is immoral. The end does not justify the means. And if we want a thriving medical insurance market, we need only free it from restrictions and, most importantly, privilege. Freedom and competition really work.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 T he Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were locked in a hopeless standoff. She was effectively arguing her side of the issue and I was, well, lets say I was not agreeing. I will not say who won, just that it wasnt me. She then looked at me, put both hands on her hips and said, Time will tell that Im right. I cannot wait. The problem is, time is never on my side. I simply do not know what it is about time, but it never does me any favors. Always, and I mean always, time proves my wife was right. I hate it. I thought it was supposed to be Father Time we are dealing with. If it is, he certainly does not have the male side of the issue in good grips. Why does time always prove my wife right? Perhaps Mother Nature has so bullied Father Time that he always takes up the side of my wife. The past week I have been thinking about this aspect of life: time. It seems that for the most part, we have put a lot of pressure upon time. For example, my wife keeps reminding me that time heals all wounds. If it was not for Time never seems to be on my side: Is it friend or enemy? O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder time I would have no wounds, I retorted. I got in trouble just this past week because I was running out of time. I had to get across town for an appointment and believe me; time was not on my side. It would have been nice if I could just sit down with Father Time and negotiate a little bit. Would it be that hard for him to press the pause button and suspend time in order for me to catch up? Why is it so important that time keeps marching on? Why cant it, at least on the weekends, just take a slow stroll down memory lane? Often I look at my watch to determine if I have enough time to do a certain project. Time has become an austere taskmaster, refusing to give up one second. Think with me a little bit. Wouldnt it be nice to have every week just one do over moment? How hard would that be? Father Time insists on perfection always. He does not allow for screw-ups, which is rather pressing for me. If I could just have one 15minute period during the week that I could do over, I might be able to catch up a little. He wants me to be on time every time. When it is 2 p.m., it is only 2 p.m. for one second, that is all. I believe there is an error here somewhere. If time is so valuable, why cant I enjoy 2 p.m. for say, 15 minutes? But no, by the time I acknowledge that it is 2 p.m., Father Time is tapping his finger on his watch and saying, Lets keep moving because time waits for no man. At the very center of my life, and everybody elses as well, is the infamous clock representing time. And what a harsh, demanding element this invention has become. Who invented that clock in the first place? Why was it not good enough just to look at the sun and guess what time of day it was? If it was dark, it was time to go to sleep. If the sun was up and it was light outside, it was time to get up. Oh, how I miss those good old days. But no, Father Time tricked somebody into inventing a device that keeps time. Or, so Father Time convinced the unsuspecting inventor. The joke is on us who wear watches. No watch I have ever owned has ever kept time. All it does is show me that time is passing and I am late for an appointment. Where is that inventor that can invent some mechanism or some technology that can actually keep time? I would be the first one to buy such a contraption. Why cant Bill Gates come out of retirement and do something useful for humanity and invent the technology that actually keeps time. I would settle for half-hour increments. I could live with that. For many years now, time has not been on my side and neither has it been involved in the healing of any of my many wounds. Then never, contrary to what my wife says, has time ever told me anything. It just keeps on ticking while giving me a licking. I am older, but certainly, I am not any wiser. And I blame Father Time. He has not given me enough time to learn everything that I need to know. Every day it seems I am always running out of time. And I cannot believe it is my fault. Time marches on and I need to make the best of it as best I can. The apostle Paul understood the urgency of this matter we call time. He writes in his epistle, For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The only time we really have is now. I never have a now to do over so I need to make time my friend and not my enemy.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Read the classifieds E ven though baseball season began several weeks ago, todays date marks some significant events in MLB history. In 1912 Fenway Park officially opened. In 1912 Tiger Stadium in Detroit opened and in 1916 Chicagos Wrigley Field had its first National League game. Here in Pun Alley we windup and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts. Beginning A rookie pitcher was struggling at the mound, so the catcher walked out to talk with him. Ive figured out your problem, he told the young southpaw. You always seem to lose control at the same point in every game. When is that? asked the pitcher. Right after the National Anthem. The big game On Mount Olympus, Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman deities Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-faced god of doors and beginnings. Everyone overdid it. Ceres at one point was staggering and rapidly turning in circles. Janus, equally submerged, was trying to dance with her. Bacchus feared that the pair might fall over, so he went to steady them. This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres was held with a doubleheader.Catch this oneA lady approached the catcher at a baseball-card autographing session and asked, What position do you play? The catcher replied, Sort of crouched down with my hands chest high. Short?The press was interviewing a sensational new shortstop, but the guy spoke so quietly no one could hear him. One of them finally asked the manager, Whats the matter with him? Nothing at all, replied the manager. Thats just the way the rookie mumbles. Bunts After their first game, the Marlins announced a ticket price increase because they cant sell beer the rest of the season. They lost their opener. Presidential candidates should concentrate on baseball players. That way they would get the swing voters. The slugger refused to join the union when he learned they might be called out on strikes. The piano tuner was hired to play on the baseball team because he had perfect pitch. One group plays baseball with coal instead of with a hardball. Its the miner league. One young woman at her first baseball game said she liked the pitcher best, because he hit the bat every time. She was called Baseball because they threw her out at home. Baseball is a game in which a young man who bravely strikes out for himself receives no praise for it. An eyefulA long time ago immortal pitcher Cy Young got bopped in the left eye with a line drive. He was told to wear a patch, but refused, saying it would hurt his depth perception. Still, before he went to the mound, his coach warned him to rely mostly on his sighted orb. Remember, said he, only the good eye, Young. FrozenIt was cold and windy, not a fit night out for man or beast, but the game was being played. Half-frozen, the manager ran out on the field to dispute a play. He called the umpire every name in the book, and some that were too obscene for the book. Finally the umpire said, Yell your head off. If I have to be out here, so do you! Semi baseball Jimmy was never shy about reminding people that he played semi-pro baseball. My teammates used to call me James Bond, he was telling his friends. I had all sorts of tricks to confuse the opposition. That and he batted. 007, his wife added. Horse senseDuring spring training a baseball scout brought a racehorse with him to add to the starting lineup. The coach asked, Why did you bring that horse here? The scout replied, Wait until you see him bat. All the players laughed until the horse came to the plate holding a bat. The pitcher just threw the ball toward home plate, when astonishingly, the horse hit the ball deep in the outfield. The horse didnt move. The manager yelled at the baseball scout to tell the horse to run to first base. The scout looked back at the manager and replied, If he could run, hed be at Belmont!

Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com A mournful whistle in the night. Steam rising in a foggy mist. The clatter of wheels against a well-worn track. Children excited, others frightened, some holding treasured toys, some holding treasured memories. Save us, save us, the whispered prayers cry as they waft off into the wind. Two trains traveling in the night, one heading to freedom, the other to despair. At the twilight of the beginning of the Second World War, things were not good for the Jews of Germany and the occupied Nazi lands. The Jewish residents of these countries were stripped of their rights and were being rounded up and shot as part of the Nazi philosophy of virulent anti-Semitism and their domination as the Aryan race. To be a Jew anywhere in these occupied lands was dangerous and children were no exception. After Krystalnacht in November of 1938 when Jews businesses were systematically looted, synagogues burned and lives ruined, it was clear that the danger for European Jews was increasing. To this end, the British government devised a plan to rescue as many children as possible from harms reach. The plan allowed one child from a family (how could a mother make such a choice?) for a surety bond of 50 British pounds to escape on a train called the Kindertransport. This train would take children from 1 to 17 years of age from Nazi infested countries to live with families in Great Britain. Two trains traveled on into the night, one into the care of strangers, the other into the care of monsters. The British government helped through diplomatic means to rescue these children. It has been estimated that at least 10,000 children were saved in this way and were thus denied capture by the Nazis. Had they remained in the occupied areas of Czechoslovakia, Germany and Austria, they would have surely perished. Most of the children never saw their parents again. Most did not speak English. Between the traumas of losing parents, resettling in a foreign country and the threat of war, life for these children must have been very hard to bear. Two trains traveled on into the night. One headed West to freedom, the other headed East to hell. The first Kindertransport left a month after Krystalnacht. The last one left on Sept. 1, 1939, just as war broke out in Europe. The program was suspended and those children who remained faced an uncertain fate. Of those that arrived in Great Britain, many who came of age, joined the British armed forces as a way to fight back against their Nazi tormentors. It is believed that between 20 and 25 percent of those on the Kindertransport, emigrated to Canada or the United States. Two trains traveled on into the night. One was reaching its destination; the other was reaching the Final Destination. I once knew a survivor who was rescued on the Kindertransport. She was of Polish extraction and was placed with a family in Britain. She was about 10 at the time. At 17, she came to the United States and went to secretarial school. She later married and lived well in a Connecticut suburb. Last time I was in contact, she had moved to Lake Worth, Florida. I often wondered how hard it must have been for her losing most of her family and dealing with the horrors of war. Yet, Berta seemed to do well and was an excellent administrative assistant and was somehow able to bury her sorrow deep within the leaves of the book of her life. On April 19, Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, we will pause and remember the children who never made it to adulthood. We will remember those who saw their mothers raped, their infant siblings bayonetted or thrown like trash against walls, their fathers shot before them or starved to death. We will mourn the ones who might have found a cure for cancer, composed a symphony, or could have written beautiful poetry. We will mourn the innocent lives that were lost and sacrificed at the altar of hatred. Yes, we will mourn and we will remember. Two trains traveled on into the night. One ended into the loving arms of those in This World, the other ended into the loving arms of those in the Next. (While the Final Solution, the deportation and extermination of European Jews via trains to concentration camps did not begin until 1941, roundups had already begun during the time of Kindertransport. The train heading East was used for dramatic purposes. At the wars end, an estimated 1.5 million children had perished in the Holocaust. A special memorial to them can be viewed at Yad Vashem, Israels memorial to the Holocaust.) Source: various web resources. Judi Siegal and her husband, Phil, live in Sun Valley.

David Joseph Morin of 52 N. Highway 41, was stopped by a deputy who said he received consent to search the vehicle and discovered several cartons of cigarattes. The deputy called Detective Greg Spicher from the Southwest District Office, who reportedly received a confession from Morin. After obtaining a search warrant, Spicher, the deputy, and a sergeant from Levy County went to Morins home. There, Morin reportedly showed deputies the item, a splitting maul, that he used to break in the door of the store at State Road 200 and County Road 484. They also discovered clothing, sneakers and some of the cigarettes taken from the burglaries in Marion County. The Chevron convenience store had been burglarized twice within a week. According to jail records, Morin was accused of three counts of burglary, three counts of grand theft, and one count of dealing in stolen property. His bond is set at a total of $40,000. He was booked in on Sunday, April 15, at 2:30 a.m. and as of Wednesday noon was still in the jail. In a misdemeanor theft, Christy Jane Sullivan, 24, of North Keel Drive, Hernando, was accused of taking a bra and a bikini bathing suit from Bealls on State Road 200 and leaving without paying for the items. She reportedly told the deputy that she was thrown out of her house the previous night and didnt have a bra to wear. She said she had nover done anything like this before, but jail records indicate she was arrested for petit theft 2nd offense. Her bond was set at $250 and she bonded out with a couple of hours of her arrest.

Upstate New York Club : Everyone invited to special Memorial Day eventAll Oak Runners are invited to the Upstate New York Clubs celebration of Memorial Day on May 28 which will be a special tribute to our veterans and the Wounded Warriors Project in particular. The club will be privileged to have as their guest Dan Nevins, director of Warriors Speak, a prestigious group of wounded warriors and caregivers who have been selected to share their personal, inspirational stories with the public. Dan was deployed to Iraq as an infantry squad leader. An explosive device detonated beneath his vehicle while on a combat mission and as a result he suffered a traumatic brain injury and eventually lost both legs below the knee. By sharing his own story and personal accomplishments (he recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with two of his fellow wounded warriors) Nevins is an inspiration to his peers and the warriors he serves. There will be a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommys Bar-b-que bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Tickets will be on sale April 28, May 5 and May 12 at a cost for members of $18, guests, $20. More details will be forthcoming on flyers, the Oak Run Newsletter, channel 12 and this column.

On Monday evening starting at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse, residents gathered to share in some polish sausage; assorted snacks and desserts and to dance to the tunes of Ricky B. Red and White were the colors of the day and all of the tables and most of the residents were decked out appropriately. Laughter permeated the clubhouse as Peggy Konan and others went just slightly wild with their squirt guns. Rick Becotte played dances that ranged from the Twist; the Chicken Dance; Polish Polkas and everything in between. Couples and groups did waltzes and line dances; novelty steps and reels. Rick has a wide variety of music and plays it all to the delight of everyone. Rick Becotte; Bill Mahar; Peggy Konar; Jay and Fred OHern put the dance together and did a great job. Everything from the food, to the entertainment; the company to the door prizes was first class. Well done guys and gal.

Coffee and snacks will be available so grab your camera and come on out to learn; teach and share.

Bingo Every Thursday at 7 p.m., the Cherrywood Clubhouse is home to bingo. Theres fun; excitement; and money to be made on every game to say nothing about the friendships you can develop.

Bocce Ball has new timeFor all of you who enjoy the Bocce Ball evenings on Saturday please make a note that the new starting time is 8 p.m. Every Saturday a group of welcoming residents head out to the Bocce Court behind the clubhouse to play, or socialize and usually, do both. In the event of a rain storm, the crowd retreats to the Clubhouse to enjoy a few adult beverages or soft drinks and share the good times that being with friends brings. Bocce is a blast so dont miss your chance to learn a great game and meet some equally great people. If youre a newcomer to the game or to the group, youre cordially invited to stop on by. Remember, strangers are just people we havent met yet and you wont be a stranger for long with this fun loving group. Veterans Club meetingOn May 3 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will meet to put the finishing touches on the Memorial Ceremony and to discuss the upcoming issues facing the club in the next year. You can be a veteran; a family member of a veteran or just a good citizen to come to the meeting. If you are interested in joining the Veterans Club, see a member for details or just come on out to the meeting. Remember that Armed Forces Day is May 19 and traditional Memorial Day is May 30. The Veterans Club will hold a service honoring our fallen comrades at noon on the 30th followed by a down home picnic. Tickets are $7 that will provide hamburgers; hot dogs; potato salad; and home made beans. Pot luck desserts, lemonade and coffee will also be available plus you can bring your own beverages of choice as well. Our guest speaker will be Maj. Morrey Dean, U.S. Army (Ret). Music will be provided by Rich Becotte and at 2 p.m., we will draw for the winner of the three day cruise to the Bahamas. Tickets for the drawing are available right up until 2 oclock so dont miss out on your chance to win. Memorial Day is a time when we honor those who gave their all so that we might enjoy the blessings of freedom. We take time out of our schedules to honor their memory and to say Thank you for their sacrifice. For the sake of all those who gave up their tomorrows so we could have today, make this Memorial Day a special event in your life. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on Tim Delaney. Now before you think that either you or I have lost our minds, Tim was featured in the Citizen two weeks ago. Unfortunately, a large portion of the article was inadvertently omitted so we have corrected that by reprinting the article in its entirety this week. Tim is a native of Syracuse, New York and took the long route to find Florida and Cherrywood. After a brief career as a tailor, working needle and thread and the sales floor, Tim landed a job with US Airways in customer service. From Syracuse he was moved to Denver; then to Pittsburgh, Kansas city and finally to Orlando. He requested to go where Mickey lives to get out of the cold weather. In Orlando he found more than just sunshine; he found the sunshine of his life, his wife, Daphne. Daphne, a native of Nicaragua who moved to the United States when she was four years old, was working at the airport coffee shop. The pair began dating and fell in love. Unfortunately, shortly after, the tragedy of 9/11 struck and the airlines were hit with layoffs. Tim and Daphne moved to Cherrywood and Tim took a job with the Ocala Hilton.

Ladies Luncheon a HitOn Wednesday, April 11, our Ladies Luncheon was held in the Clubhouse with guest speaker Roy Mitchell from SECO presenting an update on hurricane preparedness. Everyone brought food to pass and share and it was delicious. (Your reporter snuck in to cover the festivities) Scalloped potatoes; meatballs and noodles; Quiche; Jell-o salad; green bean salad; cakes; pies; cookies and other assorted goodies filled the well decorated tables. Zoe Milnes who has been running the luncheon for the past year was a gracious hostess; making everyone feel welcome and making sure everyone was well fed. Roy Mitchell is an excellent presenter. Speaking with the aid of the large screen, he spoke about the automated GPS system that gives repair crews not only the places that need immediate attention, but also the equipment that is needed once they get on scene. Caution was stressed when dealing with downed lines; lines in the trees and shrubs and flowers around the electrical boxes that some folks have in their yards. After a strong presentation of safety and storm damage assessment, Roy gave out a brochure with helpful tips and survival recommendations to be followed in an emergency. Just eight years ago, 2004, Florida was hit with three major storms, making it the year of the hurricanes. SECO learned much from that years devastation and Roy made sure that everyone at the luncheon benefited from that learning experience. To get Mr. Mitchell to speak to your organization, call 352-237-4107. On May 9 from noon until 1:30 p.m., the Ladies will hold their final luncheon of the season (they dont meet during the summer months) at Logans Steak House. For reservations, see Geri in the office and come out for this opportunity to share in friendship and fellowship with the Ladies of Cherrywood.

At the conclusion of the program, Zoe Milnes received a warm round of applause in appreciation for all the hard work shes put into the Ladies Luncheons over this past year.Dyngus Day DelightDyngus Day, a Polish holiday observed the Monday after Easter to celebrate the end of the sacrifices of the Lenten Season, is alive and well at Cherrywood. On Monday evening starting at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse, residents gathered to share in some polish sausage; assorted snacks and desserts and to dance to the tunes of Ricky B. Red and White were the colors of the day and all of the tables and most of the residents were decked out appropriately. Laughter permeated the clubhouse as Peggy Konan and others went just slightly wild with their squirt guns. Rick Becotte played dances that ranged from the Twist; the Chicken Dance; Polish Polkas and everything in between. Couples and groups did waltzes and line dances; novelty steps and reels. Rick has a wide variety of music and plays it all to the delight of everyone. Rick Becotte; Bill Mahar; Peggy Konar; Jay and Fred OHern put the dance together and did a great job. Everything from the food, to the entertainment; the company to the door prizes was first class. Well done guys and gal. Photo Club On Friday, April 13, the Cherrywood Photo Club held its first meeting. Nancy Frost was the guest speaker and she brought a lot of information to us about several subjects. Nancy discussed such things as photo composition, color/Black & white photography; digital and SLR picture taking plus how to organize a club of this type. If this is the type of club that would be of interest to you, you are cordially invited to join us on Wednesday, April 25 at 10 a.m. in the card room of the Clubhouse. Coffee and snacks will be available so grab your camera and come on out to learn; teach and share. For those of you who dont have grandchildren around to teach you how to use your digital camera, this is a great opportunity for you to learn and for those who are experienced photographers, this is a great chance for you to share your knowledge.

This trip for two includes fees; port taxes; gratuities and a hundred dollars in spending money. The Veterans Club is selling these raffle tickets for just $10 a piece or three for $20. Thats a great deal! Get your tickets from Geri, Rich Hurley or Bill Mahar.

Bocce Ball has new timeFor all of you who enjoy the Bocce Ball evenings on Saturday please make a note that the new starting time is 8 p.m. Every Saturday a group of welcoming residents head out to the Bocce Court behind the clubhouse to play, or socialize and usually, do both.

Bocce is a blast so dont miss your chance to learn a great game and meet some equally great people. If youre a newcomer to the game or to the group, youre cordially invited to stop on by.

Tickets for the drawing are available right up until 2 oclock so dont miss out on your chance to win. Memorial Day is a time when we honor those who gave their all so that we might enjoy the blessings of freedom. We take time out of our schedules to honor their memory and to say Thank you for their sacrifice. For the sake of all those who gave up their tomorrows so we could have today, make this Memorial Day a special event in your life. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on Tim Delaney. Now before you think that either you or I have lost our minds, Tim was featured in the Citizen two weeks ago. Unfortunately, a large portion of the article was inadvertently omitted so we have corrected that by reprinting the article in its entirety this week. Tim is a native of Syracuse, New York and took the long route to find Florida and Cherrywood. After a brief career as a tailor, working needle and thread and the sales floor, Tim landed a job with US Airways in customer service. From Syracuse he was moved to Denver; then to Pittsburgh, Kansas city and finally to Orlando. He requested to go where Mickey lives to get out of the cold weather. In Orlando he found more than just sunshine; he found the sunshine of his life, his wife, Daphne. Daphne, a native of Nicaragua who moved to the United States when she was four years old, was working at the airport coffee shop. The pair began dating and fell in love. Unfortunately, shortly after, the tragedy of 9/11 struck and the airlines were hit with layoffs. Tim and Daphne moved to Cherrywood and Tim took a job with the Ocala Hilton. The hospitality industry was hit hard by the economic problems following the tragic terrorist attack and again, Tim was laid off. Beginning a new profession in Home Improvement, Tim started up his own company. That was al-Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com C herrywood Estates will hold its community wide yard sale on Saturday, April 21 and the public is invited to come in and visit the open garages and driveways filled with bargains. Beginning at 8 a.m. and running until 1 p.m. the cheerful residents of Cherrywood will be displaying and selling their tools; toys; household items; clothes and other assorted merchandise at cut rate prices. Our residents will put out their goods prior to 8 in the morning so that they will be ready to serve everyone when the sale begins. If youre not the type of person who likes to get up early, theres no problem; you can shop until 1 in the afternoon and still get good deals. Health Fair a winnerVisitors and residents were treated to a magnificent Health Fair on Saturday, the 14th. People who attended learned a lot about maintaining our health and well being as we grow older. Vendors were there to display their goods for making life better and easier. Classes were given on food and nutrition; muscle and joint maintenance in older people; back pain and even a class on What are you Drinking? Coffee, tea, breakfast pastries and lemonade were served in the morning with a special lunch plate served up from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Tuna fish sandwiches, fruit cup, chips and beverages were made by the Activities Committee. Free blood pressure exams; hearing checks; advice on home improvements for those with limited abilities and even specialized lingerie were available to all who came. Too numerous to mention, all of the presenters and vendors were pleased with the turn out and those who attended were equally pleased with all that was available. Derby Day at CherrywoodLadies, get your hats decorated and ready for the May 5 Kentucky Derby Public invited to community yard sale on Saturday C HERRYWOOD ESTATES J E John Everlove Good crowds attended the health fair at Cherrywood. Above, Jim Martin of The Ranch talks to one of those who came to see the displays. Day celebration at Cherrywood. The doors to the clubhouse open at 5 p.m. on Saturday. Hot dogs; lemonade; coffee and snacks will be available along with mint juleps. Of course there will be prizes for the best hats and 50/50 raffles. At 6:30 the most exciting minute in sports takes place with the Kentucky Derby. Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management donated the hot dogs and since snacks are pot luck, there will be no tickets to buy to enjoy this afternoon and evening of good times and good friends. Immediately following the race, dance to the tunes of Richard Becotte, our favorite DJ to round out the evening in a special way. See you on May 5. Accordions and more at the Clubhouse This Wednesday, April 25, at 5:30 p.m., the Accordion Club will tune up and provide another evening of excellent entertainment for all who wish to attend. The Clubhouse fills up quickly so get there early and plan to enjoy a variety of music played on an assortment of instruments by to notch musicians.

Upstate New York Club : Everyone invited to special Memorial Day eventAll Oak Runners are invited to the Upstate New York Clubs celebration of Memorial Day on May 28 which will be a special tribute to our veterans and the Wounded Warriors Project in particular. The club will be privileged to have as their guest Dan Nevins, director of Warriors Speak, a prestigious group of wounded warriors and caregivers who have been selected to share their personal, inspirational stories with the public. Dan was deployed to Iraq as an infantry squad leader. An explosive device detonated beneath his vehicle while on a combat mission and as a result he suffered a traumatic brain injury and eventually lost both legs below the knee. By sharing his own story and personal accomplishments (he recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with two of his fellow wounded warriors) Nevins is an inspiration to his peers and the warriors he serves. There will be a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommys Bar-b-que bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Tickets will be on sale April 28, May 5 and May 12 at a cost for members of $18, guests, $20. More details will be forthcoming on flyers, the Oak Run Newsletter, channel 12 and this column.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, April 10, we played the last day of our three-day Solheim Cup tournament. Team Europe women were dressed in blue and yellow and Team USA golfers wore red, white and blue. As reported last week, after the first 2 days Team US was leading Team Europe 8 1/2 points to 5 1/2 points. 14 points were up for grabs on Tuesday, April 10, and the Team USA women took advantage of those matches, winning 10 matches and tying 2 of them! Team Europe won 1 match and tied 2. The final score was Team USA 20 1/2 points and Team Europe 7 1/2 points. After golf we enjoyed a wonderful lunch prepared by the Royal Oaks staff. Team captains, JT Lemasters, Team USA, and Nancy Lefebvre, Team Europe, thanked their committee members who helped with all the planning and also thanked all the ROWGO members who participated this year, making this a very special tournament. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The final day of the two day Seniors Tournament was held on Friday the 13th! Despite the bad luck usually associated with the day the scores were good (for the most part), and the weather cooperated with a sunny and warm morning. The game was individual play, with a two day combined gross score and net score for each player. The players were divided into three categories, Juniors (under 70), Seniors W (mostly the lower handicaps), and Seniors R. Within each category were flights, with awards given for both the gross and net winners in each flight. There were 59 participants. And the winners were: Juniors Emmett Dowling (160 gross), John DeSalvo (145 net) Seniors W flight 1 Ron Catapano (160 gross), Hal Loomis/Dick Blackburn (137 net) Seniors W flight 2 Al Prachel (172 gross), Bill Staiger (142 net) Seniors W flight 3 Bruce Stover (168 gross), Showcase of Stars celebrates its 50th show Nevins O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE14 PHOTOS BY RON RATNEROak Run pipe installation Marion County Utilities is installing (above and below) a reclaimed water pipe to provide an alternate water supply to the Royal Oaks Golf Course.

Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com A mournful whistle in the night. Steam rising in a foggy mist. The clatter of wheels against a well-worn track. Children excited, others frightened, some holding treasured toys, some holding treasured memories. Save us, save us, the whispered prayers cry as they waft off into the wind. Two trains traveling in the night, one heading to freedom, the other to despair. At the twilight of the beginning of the Second World War, things were not good for the Jews of Germany and the occupied Nazi lands. The Jewish residents of these countries were stripped of their rights and were being rounded up and shot as part of the Nazi philosophy of virulent anti-Semitism and their domination as the Aryan race. To be a Jew anywhere in these occupied lands was dangerous and children were no exception. After Krystalnacht in November of 1938 when Jews businesses were systematically looted, synagogues burned and lives ruined, it was clear that the danger for European Jews was increasing. To this end, the British government devised a plan to rescue as many children as possible from harms reach. The plan allowed one child from a family (how could a mother make such a choice?) for a surety bond of 50 British pounds to escape on a train called the Kindertransport. This train would take children from 1 to 17 years of age from Nazi infested countries to live with families in Great Britain. Two trains traveled on into the night, one into the care of strangers, the other into the care of monsters. The British government helped through diplomatic means to rescue these children. It has been estimated that at least 10,000 children were saved in this way and were thus denied capture by the Nazis. Had they remained in the occupied areas of Czechoslovakia, Germany and Austria, they would have surely perished. Most of the children never saw their parents again. Most did not speak English. Between the traumas of losing parents, resettling in a foreign country and the threat of war, life for these children must have been very hard to bear. Two trains traveled on into the night. One headed West to freedom, the other headed East to hell. The first Kindertransport left a month after Krystalnacht. The last one left on Sept. 1, 1939, just as war broke out in Europe. The program was suspended and those children who remained faced an uncertain fate. Of those that arrived in Great Britain, many who came of age, joined the British armed forces as a way to fight back against their Nazi tormentors. It is believed that between 20 and 25 percent of those on the Kindertransport, emigrated to Canada or the United States. Two trains traveled on into the night. One was reaching its destination; the other was reaching the Final Destination. I once knew a survivor who was rescued on the Kindertransport. She was of Polish extraction and was placed with a family in Britain. She was about 10 at the time. At 17, she came to the United States and went to secretarial school. She later married and lived well in a Connecticut suburb. Last time I was in contact, she had moved to Lake Worth, Florida. I often wondered how hard it must have been for her losing most of her family and dealing with the horrors of war. Yet, Berta seemed to do well and was an excellent administrative assistant and was somehow able to bury her sorrow deep within the leaves of the book of her life. On April 19, Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, we will pause and remember the children who never made it to adulthood. We will remember those who saw their mothers raped, their infant siblings bayonetted or thrown like trash against walls, their fathers shot before them or starved to death. We will mourn the ones who might have found a cure for cancer, composed a symphony, or could have written beautiful poetry. We will mourn the innocent lives that were lost and sacrificed at the altar of hatred. Yes, we will mourn and we will remember. Two trains traveled on into the night. One ended into the loving arms of those in This World, the other ended into the loving arms of those in the Next. (While the Final Solution, the deportation and extermination of European Jews via trains to concentration camps did not begin until 1941, roundups had already begun during the time of Kindertransport. The train heading East was used for dramatic purposes. At the wars end, an estimated 1.5 million children had perished in the Holocaust. A special memorial to them can be viewed at Yad Vashem, Israels memorial to the Holocaust.) Source: various web resources. Judi Siegal and her husband, Phil, live in Sun Valley.

Suspect in Chevron burglary apprehended A 31-year-old Dunnellon man has been accused of commercial burglary and grand theft after his vehicle was stopped for an expired Georgia tag. David Joseph Morin of 52 N. Highway 41, was stopped by a deputy who said he received consent to search the vehicle and discovered several cartons of cigarattes. The deputy called Detective Greg Spicher from the Southwest District Office, who reportedly received a confession from Morin. After obtaining a search warrant, Spicher, the deputy, and a sergeant from Levy County went to Morins home. There, Morin reportedly showed deputies the item, a splitting maul, that he used to break in the door of the store at State Road 200 and County Road 484. They also discovered clothing, sneakers and some of the cigarettes taken from the burglaries in Marion County. The Chevron convenience store had been burglarized twice within a week. According to jail records, Morin was accused of three counts of burglary, three counts of grand theft, and one count of dealing in stolen property. His bond is set at a total of $40,000. He was booked in on Sunday, April 15, at 2:30 a.m. and as of Wednesday noon was still in the jail. In a misdemeanor theft, Christy Jane Sullivan, 24, of North Keel Drive, Hernando, was accused of taking a bra and a bikini bathing suit from Bealls on State Road 200 and leaving without paying for the items. She reportedly told the deputy that she was thrown out of her house the previous night and didnt have a bra to wear. She said she had nover done anything like this before, but jail records indicate she was arrested for petit theft 2nd offense. Her bond was set at $250 and she bonded out with a couple of hours of her arrest.

Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com are to indicate that insurance which covers volitional activities, such as the use of contraception, physical exams, and other preventive services, is not truly insurance.) When explicit prices are artificially lowered under an insurance illusion, people are less cost-conscious and thus consume more services than they would have. Much medical care is elective and nonessential, but under our government-shaped system, rather than asking, Do I need it and how much? people ask, Does my insurance cover it? This raises real costs for all, but it especially raises prices to people who have no insurance or who would buy it in the individual market, discouraging them from doing so. As a result, fewer young and healthy people pay premiums, weakening the insurance industry. This is purely a government-created problem. Government mandates are backed by aggressive force, which is immoral. The end does not justify the means. And if we want a thriving medical insurance market, we need only free it from restrictions and, most importantly, privilege. Freedom and competition really work.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 T he Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were locked in a hopeless standoff. She was effectively arguing her side of the issue and I was, well, lets say I was not agreeing. I will not say who won, just that it wasnt me. She then looked at me, put both hands on her hips and said, Time will tell that Im right. I cannot wait. The problem is, time is never on my side. I simply do not know what it is about time, but it never does me any favors. Always, and I mean always, time proves my wife was right. I hate it. I thought it was supposed to be Father Time we are dealing with. If it is, he certainly does not have the male side of the issue in good grips. Why does time always prove my wife right? Perhaps Mother Nature has so bullied Father Time that he always takes up the side of my wife. The past week I have been thinking about this aspect of life: time. It seems that for the most part, we have put a lot of pressure upon time. For example, my wife keeps reminding me that time heals all wounds. If it was not for Time never seems to be on my side: Is it friend or enemy? O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder time I would have no wounds, I retorted. I got in trouble just this past week because I was running out of time. I had to get across town for an appointment and believe me; time was not on my side. It would have been nice if I could just sit down with Father Time and negotiate a little bit. Would it be that hard for him to press the pause button and suspend time in order for me to catch up? Why is it so important that time keeps marching on? Why cant it, at least on the weekends, just take a slow stroll down memory lane? Often I look at my watch to determine if I have enough time to do a certain project. Time has become an austere taskmaster, refusing to give up one second. Think with me a little bit. Wouldnt it be nice to have every week just one do over moment? How hard would that be? Father Time insists on perfection always. He does not allow for screw-ups, which is rather pressing for me. If I could just have one 15minute period during the week that I could do over, I might be able to catch up a little. He wants me to be on time every time. When it is 2 p.m., it is only 2 p.m. for one second, that is all. I believe there is an error here somewhere. If time is so valuable, why cant I enjoy 2 p.m. for say, 15 minutes? But no, by the time I acknowledge that it is 2 p.m., Father Time is tapping his finger on his watch and saying, Lets keep moving because time waits for no man. At the very center of my life, and everybody elses as well, is the infamous clock representing time. And what a harsh, demanding element this invention has become. Who invented that clock in the first place? Why was it not good enough just to look at the sun and guess what time of day it was? If it was dark, it was time to go to sleep. If the sun was up and it was light outside, it was time to get up. Oh, how I miss those good old days. But no, Father Time tricked somebody into inventing a device that keeps time. Or, so Father Time convinced the unsuspecting inventor. The joke is on us who wear watches. No watch I have ever owned has ever kept time. All it does is show me that time is passing and I am late for an appointment. Where is that inventor that can invent some mechanism or some technology that can actually keep time? I would be the first one to buy such a contraption. Why cant Bill Gates come out of retirement and do something useful for humanity and invent the technology that actually keeps time. I would settle for half-hour increments. I could live with that. For many years now, time has not been on my side and neither has it been involved in the healing of any of my many wounds. Then never, contrary to what my wife says, has time ever told me anything. It just keeps on ticking while giving me a licking. I am older, but certainly, I am not any wiser. And I blame Father Time. He has not given me enough time to learn everything that I need to know. Every day it seems I am always running out of time. And I cannot believe it is my fault. Time marches on and I need to make the best of it as best I can. The apostle Paul understood the urgency of this matter we call time. He writes in his epistle, For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The only time we really have is now. I never have a now to do over so I need to make time my friend and not my enemy.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Read the classifieds E ven though baseball season began several weeks ago, todays date marks some significant events in MLB history. In 1912 Fenway Park officially opened. In 1912 Tiger Stadium in Detroit opened and in 1916 Chicagos Wrigley Field had its first National League game. Here in Pun Alley we windup and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts. Beginning A rookie pitcher was struggling at the mound, so the catcher walked out to talk with him. Ive figured out your problem, he told the young southpaw. You always seem to lose control at the same point in every game. When is that? asked the pitcher. Right after the National Anthem. The big game On Mount Olympus, Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman deities Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-faced god of doors and beginnings. Everyone overdid it. Ceres at one point was staggering and rapidly turning in circles. Janus, equally submerged, was trying to dance with her. Bacchus feared that the pair might fall over, so he went to steady them. This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres was held with a doubleheader.Catch this oneA lady approached the catcher at a baseball-card autographing session and asked, What position do you play? The catcher replied, Sort of crouched down with my hands chest high. Short?The press was interviewing a sensational new shortstop, but the guy spoke so quietly no one could hear him. One of them finally asked the manager, Whats the matter with him? Nothing at all, replied the manager. Thats just the way the rookie mumbles. Bunts After their first game, the Marlins announced a ticket price increase because they cant sell beer the rest of the season. They lost their opener. Presidential candidates should concentrate on baseball players. That way they would get the swing voters. The slugger refused to join the union when he learned they might be called out on strikes. The piano tuner was hired to play on the baseball team because he had perfect pitch. One group plays baseball with coal instead of with a hardball. Its the miner league. One young woman at her first baseball game said she liked the pitcher best, because he hit the bat every time. She was called Baseball because they threw her out at home. Baseball is a game in which a young man who bravely strikes out for himself receives no praise for it. An eyefulA long time ago immortal pitcher Cy Young got bopped in the left eye with a line drive. He was told to wear a patch, but refused, saying it would hurt his depth perception. Still, before he went to the mound, his coach warned him to rely mostly on his sighted orb. Remember, said he, only the good eye, Young. FrozenIt was cold and windy, not a fit night out for man or beast, but the game was being played. Half-frozen, the manager ran out on the field to dispute a play. He called the umpire every name in the book, and some that were too obscene for the book. Finally the umpire said, Yell your head off. If I have to be out here, so do you! Semi baseball Jimmy was never shy about reminding people that he played semi-pro baseball. My teammates used to call me James Bond, he was telling his friends. I had all sorts of tricks to confuse the opposition. That and he batted. 007, his wife added. Horse senseDuring spring training a baseball scout brought a racehorse with him to add to the starting lineup. The coach asked, Why did you bring that horse here? The scout replied, Wait until you see him bat. All the players laughed until the horse came to the plate holding a bat. The pitcher just threw the ball toward home plate, when astonishingly, the horse hit the ball deep in the outfield. The horse didnt move. The manager yelled at the baseball scout to tell the horse to run to first base. The scout looked back at the manager and replied, If he could run, hed be at Belmont!

I told my sister that this housekeeper was a real problem and seemed to be taunting Mom. My sister offered the thought that mom was becoming more forgetful and was starting to get up in the middle of the night and to have conversations with her sister who had passed away two decades earlier. My immediate inclination was that my mother was dehydrated. She must not be drinking enough water, and that was causing her to be confused. Or maybe it was a change of medication, and there was some drug interaction that could explain her behavior. My sister, hearing my diagnosis, took mom to see her doctor. Then I got the call from my sister that I dreaded. The doctor said mom was showing signs of dementia. Even though a medical professional had given this diagnosis, I still didnt want to believe it. Did he do a full blood work up, I asked? Did he do a urinalysis to see if she is dehydrated? I was sure that my mom had just suffered a momentary setback that could easily be explained. But it wasnt to be. From that day forward, her condition began to deteriorate. At first, my sister cared for her on her own. Then we hired staff to care for her in her home, and finally, she moved into one of my assisted living residences. She had become one of my customers. I missed all the signs I should have seen: Accusing people of stealing personal items. Speaking to relatives who have passed away as if they are still alive. Forgetting close family members names or memorable events. Fearing to go out after dark. Difficulty finding words. I wanted my mom to be the person I knew my whole life. I didnt know this new person, so I didnt want to acknowledge or recognize the disease. My own psyche wouldnt allow for my mom to be sick or take on symptoms of a disease I knew so well. As family members, we take on our own sense of denial about Alzheimers. We think that, by failing to acknowledge it, it will somehow go away. But it doesnt. Its calling gets louder and louder until you are forced to listen. My mother was put on a medication called Aricept soon after her diagnosis, and her condition improved in the short term. The best thing we can do as family members is to watch for what is normal and then make sure we give in to the reality of what possible decline might be, if not for us, then for them. Dwayne J.

As it stands right now, I see no way this man will get a fair trial, since he has already been convicted with calls for his prosecution. Frankly, I dont believe any of the above hypocrites are that interested in this shooting other than self promotion and to put our States Stand Your Ground Law under the national microscope to have it modified or outright repealed. Numerous articles have already appeared regarding the increase in the number of criminals shot to death by armed individuals who were protecting themselves from said criminals. I guess these troublemakers would be happier if the innocent victim were injured or killed. Go back to your state, we can take care of Florida, give the system a chance to work, and stop causing more problems. Wayne Rackley Ocala Saving jobs vs. creating jobsWhy isnt saving jobs considered the same as creating jobs. Is it because the unemployed people dont count to the states, only their current work force seems to matter? When President Obama gave a trillion dollars back to the states to use to create jobs, the states used this money to shore up their own budgets and keep their own people working rather than creating new jobs. These same states who used this money to pay state employees to remain on the payroll rather than create jobs and employ new people. The focus is to blame the president for what the states did in not creating new jobs but rather they used this money to protect themselves and their budget. The president still gets the blame for not creating jobs and the states look like heroes. There is no credit given to this administration for just saving jobs because these people were already working and their saved jobs dont seem to count in this terrible economy. We are not using stimulus money to create jobs but just to remain with the status quo of staying even. The business community has already created all the jobs they planned on creating, they just happen to be in foreign countries. Jerry Segovis Ocala BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen T he Obama administration argued to the U.S. Supreme Court recently that people must be compelled to buy medical insurance (designed by the government) or the national medical-insurance market will fail. Thus, Obamacare advocates say, the insurance mandate is consistent with the powers delegated under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The argument, however, contains a fatal flaw. If the medicalinsurance market would indeed fail without a mandate, its only because of other mandates the government has already imposed. Thus the government has created the rationale for an extension of its own power. The administration foresees two problems in the absence of the mandate. First, uninsured people will avoid routine and preventive medical care and go to hospital emergency rooms when they cant delay care any longer, raising costs to others. Second, some people will apply for insurance only after they are seriously ill. As a result, the insurance market will be dominated by sick people, making it unviable. Both problems are government creations: emergency rooms by law must treat everyone regardless of ability to pay, and new laws are increasingly restricting insurance companies right to refuse to cover preexisting conditions or to charge already sick people more. Thus it is the regulatory regime that makes the insurance market fragile. Furthermore, the emergencyroom issue is overstated. As Shikha Dalmia points out, such care is a bare 3 percent of total medical spending, less than the retail sectors loss from shoplifting. But even ignoring that point, a free and prosperous society would have charity hospitals and practitioners eager and able to help the relative few who could not afford care. A must-serve mandate is unjustified and unnecessary. The principal issue is insurance regulation. Imagine if you could purchase home insurance and demand payment after your house burned down, or if you could buy an auto policy and collect after an accident. Such coverage after the fact would not be true insurance, which is a hedge against uncertainty. Under those rules, insurers would exit the market for more profitable activities. Medical insurance is no different. For the industry to be viable, companies have to collect premiums while people are healthy in order to have the money to pay out when they get sick. Doesnt that prove the mandate is needed? No. In a free society, people would have natural incentives to buy insurance when they are healthy. Government destroys those incentives. How so? Young, healthy people of course will always be tempted to put off buying medical insurance. But this temptation would be reduced if we abolished all the government rules and privileges that make medical care and hence insurance artificially expensive. In myriad ways, government raises the cost of medicine: restrictive licensing, anti-competitive state insurance cartels, benefit mandates, and much more. All such interventions price people out of the medical market by making products and services more costly than they would be in a free and competitive marketplace. Government also raises prices to the uninsured by maintaining policies that insulate people with insurance from the true costs of their decisions. The income tax, which doesnt count non-cash compensation as income, makes otherwise uneconomical insurance attractive, while creating an illusion of free or nearly free services.

BY DWAYNE CLARK I think of myself as being educated in recognizing the signs of dementia. After all, I have been around people diagnosed with dementia for most of my life. I have probably met, assessed or observed over 10,000 dementia residents in the last three decades. Certainly I could quickly identify and recognize when someone was having signs of dementia. Well, that is what I thought. In 2000, it wasnt unusual for me to call my mom and chat 2-3 times a week. As a self-confessed mommas boy, I was always concerned about mom. During one of those phone calls, I could tell my mom was upset. She had accused the housekeeper of stealing some of her jewelry. I was mad at the housekeeper and ready to defend my moms position. Two days later, my sister found the jewelry in a box under my moms bed. A week later, I was having another phone conversation with my mom, this time she said the housekeeper was taking her car for joy rides, so she fired her that day. Again, I spoke with my sister who held the keys to moms car and said it had not been moved in a month. Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com I f you are self-employed or retired youve already sent to the IRS your first estimated tax payment for 2012 real money based on income you havent received yet. Meanwhile, living nearby are some of the 46 percent of Americans who paid no taxes for 2011 and are unlikely to pay any in 2012. Our system of taxation is mysterious and corrupt. Tax laws are called a code because theyre supposed to be understandable rules for collection and payment of taxes. In reality our tax laws and IRS rulings are 70,000 pages of Washington gobbledygook, which include hundreds of loopholes. The Tax Code is a deceptive game of hide-in-plain-sight. One of my favorite deceptions was a politically influenced ruling that millions in earnings from a worldwide tour by a famous performer should be treated as profits from an investment of her body and voice, and taxed at the lower rate of capital gains. Depending on whom you know, warbling around the world in grand style can be construed as risk-taking. On the other hand singing Saturday night at a local nightclub to earn a few extra bucks on weekends is taxed at the higher rates of ordinary income. Some giant corporations also pay less tax than others for reasons not intended to be understood by ordinary taxpayers. Its all part of the game of politically preferred treatment for friends and supporters. How can we fix the goulash we refer to as the U.S. Tax Code? The only intelligent answer is to deposit the code, rulings, and forms 1040 AtoZ in a recycle trash bin and start anew. An attempt by Congress to reform the current tax code would most likely result in adding goo to the same old stew. There are a number of alternative ideas for raising revenue to run the government. Many European countries have a valueadded tax (VAT) on production. Its easy to collect and difficult to defraud, but it doesnt do away with all other taxes, and it tends to encourage bigger government. Then theres the Fair Tax, a national retail sales tax with refunds to help the less fortunate. Its almost as complicated as our present tax code. A fair tax bill has been gathering dust in Congress for more than a decade. Our favorite is a Flat Tax on all income, regardless of source salaries, benefits, bonuses, dividends, interest, inheritances, capital gains, gambling, lotteries and profits. Our vision is a tithe (ten percent) from income above the poverty level and from business profits. All citizens and business beneficiaries should have a financial stake in the success and well being of the nation. Editor, columnist, and television host Fareed Zakaria suggested playfully that the logical remedy for our corrupt and complex tax system would be a twopage tax code, with no room for loopholes, preferences, credits, exemptions, and exceptions. Theres a bumper sticker which describes a two-page Flat Tax: If 10% is enough for God, its enough for the IRS. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 O ver the past few years, its been obvious that some people have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Those of us who have websites and e-mails have been part of the effort to educate the public on the use of electronics. Now the federal government is getting in the act. As you can read elsewhere, beginning March 1, 2013, the feds will get rid of all paper checks for benefits, including Social Security. No longer will you be rushing to your mailbox on a certain day of the month to get that check and take it to the bank. You will have a choice. You can either get direct deposit into a checking or savings account or, absent both of those, you can get a prepaid debit card. This will apply to more government benefit checks besides Social Security. A complete list is in the story that starts today on Page 1. Frankly, its hard to understand why anyone would not want direct deposit. The report of stolen or lost checks, especially Social Security, is astronomical. There is also the convenience of knowing that if you are temporarily unavailable, if youre sick or out of town, your money keeps flowing into your account, even if youre not there to cash a check. One thing that hasnt been mentioned much, as near as we can find out, is the effect on the U.S. Postal Service. Is this going to be costly to the postal people, who are going to lose a lot of business? Some might say they want to continue to use cash, and thats why they cash their Social Security check every month. Thats fine. Now you can cash one of your own checks every month and still get the cash. A debit card, of course, is just as good. You take your prepaid debit card to the store, pay for your items, and theres always a little question on the keypad: Do you want cash back? Thats how many of us get cash now without even bothering to go to the bank. If youre one of the 90 percent of Social Security recipients who already get direct deposit, nothing will change. But if youre in that other 10 percent, get ready for some changes. And please, keep the kicking and screaming down. It doesnt become you at all. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

I f you've ever watched the television show "Law and Order," you've seen scenes from the Appellate Court and the state Supreme Court where both sides make their oral arguments. They stand in front of a podium which has three small lights, green, yellow and red, well in sight of the speaker. When he starts, the green light is on. When time is almost up, the yellow light comes on, and when time is up, the red light glows, and the lawyer immediately says thank you and sits down. Unfortunately, such discipline doesn't seem to apply to County Commission meetings. The county now has these little lights on the podium where members of the audience speak to the group. Those who took the trouble to get on the agenda ahead of time get five minutes. The others who wish to speak unannounced at the meeting get two minutes each. At last Tuesday's County Commission meeting, two speakers who did not get on the agenda stood up to speak, both about the taxing situation with Munroe Regional Medical Center. The first man spoke for 9 minutes and 8 seconds, and the second for 6 minutes and 30 seconds. One man got up after that and thanked the commissioners for not shutting off the speakers at the red light. We disagree. While people should have their say, they should have enough discipline to follow the rules. The commissioners should also have the fortitude to follow their rules and force spectators to abide by them. What's going to happen at the May 1 meeting if several people get up to speak and each one talks for six or nine minutes. The meeting could take forever, and now a precedent has been set. The commissioners won't be able to do anything about it, since they didn't enforce the rules this time around. Both speakers about the hospital made very good points, items that the commission should follow up on. And the commissioners should be praised for the fact that, unlike the School Board, they let the public speaker portion of the meeting be televised, even if the TV channel can't get the schedule straight (the digital schedule on Cox said it was a School Board meeting on TV that night). So a lot of things were done right. But let's streamline the process by following the rules, or let's change the rules so everyone knows where they stand.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

I dont understand how people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can come into our state and viciously stir up racial unrest and pure hatred without being arrested for inciting a riot. We dont know all the details of our infamous shooting which resulted in a teenagers death, and neither do they. They came here specifically to fan the fires of racism. Where were they in other incidents that were even more violent? Where is their outrage over the delay in prosecuting the Fort Hood shooter for instance? The news media has added to the problem by continually showing two contrasting pictures of both the shooter and the victim. If that is not a direct attempt to add fuel to the fire explain why you are doing that. Supposedly the black panthers have been making threats of violence, if this is true, where are the arrests being made?

Daphne works at Stein mart along with offering an airport shuttle service. The two stay busy with not only their work but with the caring for their animals and their hobbies. Rica and Destin are the Delaneys two dogs. Rica was rescued from a trash dump and Destin was a refugee from Hurricane Katrina. They found a loving home and loving hands to care for them and they know it. The two puppies are affectionate, gentle and will become lap dogs once theyve been introduced to strangers. Not content with just taking care of their dogs, Tim and Daphne have also been known to take care of stray cattle. Because they live adjacent to the pasture, occasionally, a cow will get loose and graze on their front or back lawn. Its not unusual for Tim to come home and have to guide the animals back through the gate so they can rejoin the rest of the herd. One day, Daphne and Tim found a baby calf in their yard. Apparently the mother cow had died during childbirth because the little one was alone and scared. For a few days, until they could get a hold of the owner, they took in the orphaned infant. With advice from a veterinarian they purchased special formula and bottle fed the baby cow. Providing warmth, food, and loving care, they were able to save the wobbly legged youngster until the owner came and retrieved it. Their love is not only limited to animals however. Two years ago they went on a Christian Mission and returned to Daphnes native village of Puerto Cabezas. In cooperation with their Church, they brought $15,000 worth of food, clothing and other much needed supplies to the poor in that town. Especially in need of their help were the children of the village. That moment touched Daphne and Tim so much that they plan a return visit. Parents of Tim, John and Jeanne, live in Oak Run. His sister, Kathy lives in Syracuse and another sister, Julie, resides in Coral Springs. Daphnes folks, Roe and Carson, live in North Carolina and she has an aunt in West Palm Beach. Family get-togethers are frequent and fun. Biking and skiing are two of Tims favorite hobbies. While Florida offers few opportunities for skiing, he takes part in at least two races per year. The course he rides is 48 miles long so its quite a work out. He used to do 100 mile races but has toned that back in recent years. Everyone who knows Tim and Daphne say the same thing about them; They are the nicest people youll ever meet. Always a smile on his face, Tim feels richly blessed to have all that he and Daphne share here in Cherrywood; warm weather, light traffic, a good business and most of all, great people.

Their show is jam-packed with dazzling, high-energy choreography, impeccable harmonies and those timeless Motown grooves that everyone knows and loves. This show is as high energy as it was in the 1960s, though the flips and splits of yesteryear have been replaced by a brilliant choreography more suited to gentlemen in their second half-century of life!

Her love of grief an obsession over the death of her mother, the Duchess of Kent, distracted her from her husbands serious illness that led to his premature death at 42 in 1861. Her hysterical reactions to any bad news about Alberts condition prompted attending physicians to lie to her or soften any troubling turn of events. Thus, his unexpected death left her inconsolable and vowing to wear widows weeds until her death, a vow she kept for 40 years. Ironically, it was Alberts demise that finally made Victoria a queen to be reckoned with. In a letter to the King of Prussia she declared her life was over: For me, life came to an end on 14 December. My life was dependent on his. I had no thoughts except of him; my whole striving was to please him, to be less unworthy of him! Originally, Albert had been considered by the English as a German interloper. At court he was forbidden to see dispatches or even be present when the queen met her ministers. But in time his influence increased over affairs of state which bored Victoria. Added to that was her incapacity during nine pregnancies. Although he worked hard the simple truth was that he assumed power simply by sharing a bed with the queen. The nation went into an immediate state of protracted mourning. Victorias entire court dressed in black including fouryear-old Princess Beatrice. All festivities of any kind were canceled for indefinite periods, greatly irritating Charles Dickens, whose upcoming speaking event had been sold out. At first the nation sympathized with the queen but as she secluded herself for most of the year in Balmoral Castle in Scotland, neglecting her duties and shunning her people, resentment grew. Only a blunt, down-to-earth John Brown, groomsman, selfappointed bodyguard and eventually constant companion was able to coax her out of a decade of isolation. That and the near death of her eldest son Bertie seem to shake her alive. The woman who had lavished her devotion on Albert the man and tried to find justice for him in death was ready to return as queen to one-fifth of the worlds population. A magnificent read that makes readers long for more. Pat Wellington is a retired English professor, and freelance writer.

OBITUARY On Saturday, May 12, letter carriers throughout Marion County will participate in the 20th annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) National Food Drive to Stamp Out Hunger. This annual effort has become the largest one-day food drive in the nations history, resulting in more than a half billion pounds of food to local food banks, pantries and shelters in all 50 states. Last year in Marion County, 278,500 pounds of nonperishable food was collected and donated to Interfaith Emergency Services for distribution to the Salvation Army, Brothers Keeper, St. Theresas Catholic Church and the Help Agency of the Forest food banks. The Ocala Post Office was ranked first in the nation in their union member category for the fifth year for the communitys outstanding effort in supporting this program. In Marion County alone, more than one million pounds of food has been collected. Postal customers are asked to hang a food donation on their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers the mail on Saturday, May 12, and the carrier will do the rest. Collection barrels will also be set up at all Post Office branches to accommodate those with Post Office Boxes. For individuals interested in volunteering for the collection and unloading/loading, please call Thomas Curtis at 352-572-5634. Service hours for high school students are available. United Way of Marion County, USPS, Campbells, Valpak, Feeding America, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association and AFLCIO have partnered with the NALC to help stamp out hunger.

Horns blew and people cheered and clapped when Raymond Kukla kissed the bride he had not seen in months on a busy street in Bay City, Mich. Married April 22, 1946 in Germany, after Kukla received permission from the U.S. Army to marry Jean, a Polish-born woman who had had been taken as a prisoner of war by the Germans, it was months before both were reunited on American soil. A resident of Warsaw, Poland, Jean had joined the Polish Underground when she was 14-years-old in hopes of protecting her war-torn city from future destruction. Orders for the soldiers serving in the underground were coming from Polands pre-war government, in exile in London. The small ill-equipped Polish Army hid in basements and fought with the bare hands until they surrendered to the Germans after realizing that the Russians were not going to come to their aid, Jean Kukla recalled. After liberation by American soldiers, a Polish camp was set up across from the American Camp. The camps were separated by volleyball courts and a swimming pool. It was on those courts that the American soldier and the Polish woman met. We were better players and we beat the men, Jean said, noting that volleyball had been a popular sport in the pre-war days of Poland. During their courtship there were language barriers to overcome. While Jean spoke her native Polish and had learned French and German in school, she didnt speak English. Kukla spoke English and a smattering of Polish. Their friendship flourished and Kukla extended his stint in the service for three-months. But when Kukla proposed marriage Jean was not sure if she should say yes. She sought the advice of an older woman, who said marry the nice young man. There was red tape for the couple to overcome before they could say, I do. Kukla first spoke to his commanding officer who agreed to write a letter on their behalf to Army headquarters. The Army eventually agreed but said the marriage could not take place for three months after receipt of the letter. The couple was first wed in a civil ceremony and then in a Catholic Church they were both raised in the Catholic faith after the Lenten season had passed. It was a festive occasion with a roasted pig, Cognac from France and the couple exchanging vows in their Army issued uniform. Weeks later Jean joined about 30 other young women that had married American GIs and started her trip to the United States. The trip included staying in Paris for several months before going into England and then crossing the Atlantic. Kukla remained behind in Germany still an enlisted man. She passed through immigration in New York City and then went on to Michigan. A woman from the American Red Cross traveled with the women helping them find their way. Finally at Bay City, Michigan, Jean was met by Kuklas parents. I knew it was them when we pulled into the station. Ray looked just like his dad, Jean said. Kuklas mother was relatively fluent in Polish, so the two women were able to communicate well. A bridal shower was planned for Jean so she could meet others of Kuklas family. With many duplicated gifts received, the two women decided to head into town to exchange some presents. It was the same afternoon that Kukla returned to his familys home to surprise his bride and parents only to find no one home. A neighbor told him that they had gone to town. The impatient Kukla boarded a bus to town. We were waiting at the bus stop when he got off at the stop across the street, Jean said who still gets emotional remembering the reunion. The young couple eventually moved to Detroit, had three children, Kukla worked for General Motors, and Jean became a nurse. For their 25th wedding anniversary, the couple toured Europe visiting the many places that had been significant in their lives. Earlier this month their neighbors and friends from Pine Run helped celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary.

BRIEFS Readers Choice ballots inside todayBY JIM CLARK Editor Continuing today, and for one additional week, the annual Readers Choice ballot for the South Marion Citizen area will appear in home delivered editions. For the second year, to ensure the fairness of the competition, only those papers delivered to homes in the circulation area will contain the ballot. Papers in the boxes and racks all over the Corridor will not contain the ballot. People are asked to submit their choices as soon as possible. Deadline is May 9. The votes will be tabulated, winners will be contacted and a special section will be published on June 15. Please take the time to fill out the ballot and make your opinions of our local businesses known. Only original ballots will be accepted no photocopies. Qualified ballots will be submitted for a random drawing for $100 to go to one of the voters. See the ballot for complete rules. Today, the ballot is on Pages 21 and 22.

As of last May, anyone newly applying for Social Security, Veterans Affairs or other federal benefits will need to choose an electronic payment method paper checks will no longer be an option. People currently receiving their federal benefits by paper check must switch to direct deposit by March 1, 2013. Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios highlighted the savings to taxpayers by ceremonially writing a check to American taxpayers in the amount of $1 billion. More than 18 million baby boomers are expected to reach retirement age during the next five years, with 10,000 people a day becoming eligible for Social Security benefits, said Rios. It costs 92 cents more to issue a payment by paper check than by direct deposit. We are retiring the Social Security paper check option in favor of electronic payments because it is the right thing to do for benefit recipients and American taxpayers alike. The Treasury Department published a final rule in December 2010, to gradually eliminate paper checks for federal benefit payments. In addition to the taxpayer savings, electronic payments are safer and more convenient than paper checks. Last year alone, more than 540,000 Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) paper checks were reported lost or stolen and had to be replaced. On Jan. 31, 1940, Ida Mae Fuller received the first monthly Social Security benefit check and, to date, about 165 million people have received Social Security benefits. The movement toward electronic payments has been steadily increasing. According to the 2010 Federal Reserve Payments Study, electronic payments now make up over three-quarters of all noncash payments nationwide. There were 5.7 billion fewer checks written in 2009 than in 2006, a decline of 6.1 percent per year while electronic payments grew 9.3 percent during that same period. Among federal benefit recipients, approximately eight in 10 receive their Social Security or other federal benefit payment electronically. The Treasury Departments public education campaign provides information to Americans about the change to how federal benefit payments are being delivered and makes it easy for current check recipients to switch online at www.GoDirect.org or by calling a toll-free helpline. Switching from checks to direct deposit is fast, easy and free at www.GoDirect.org, by calling the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Centers toll-free helpline at 1-800-333-1795, or by speaking with a bank or credit union representative. 28 ~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Feds say the check wont be in the mail Why did the golf cart cross the road? To get to OTOW amenities 80th and 80th to get traffic light BY JIM CLARK Editor People in Indigo East will finally be able to join their fellow On Top of the World residents in traveling to their activities and amenities by golf cart. However, drivers on Southwest 80th Avenue will have to contend with another traffic light on the high-speed, two-lane road. In conjunction with a new traffic light to be installed shortly, the residents have obtained a Marion County Commission revision of an ordinance that will allow them to cross Southwest 80th Avenue at the Southwest 80th Street intersection. The county ordinance currently restricts the use of golf carts on public streets outside developments. Indigo East is east of 80th Avenue, while the majority of OTOW activities take place west of the avenue. Included in the activities on the west side of the road are the festivals and events that take place at Circle Square Commons and the Cultural Center. The logical crossing point is 80th Street, but the speed limit on the avenue is 55 mph, and there are curves just to the north and just to the south of that intersection, meaning that crossing without a traffic light would be hazardous. The contingent of Indigo East residents who attended the meeting Tuesday morning at the McPherson Complex broke out in applause when the motion was approved. Officials from OTOW, which is installing the light, said the work on the intersection should begin shortly. Materials have been ordered. The only doubt raised was by Commissioner Carl Zalak, who said he has received similar requests from people in northern communities, including Ocala Palms, and that this decision could open the door to many other exceptions. It was stated that the requests would have to be taken up on an individual basis. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThe view looking west from the intersection of Southwest 80th Avenue and 80th Street.

OBITUARY On Saturday, May 12, letter carriers throughout Marion County will participate in the 20th annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) National Food Drive to Stamp Out Hunger. This annual effort has become the largest one-day food drive in the nations history, resulting in more than a half billion pounds of food to local food banks, pantries and shelters in all 50 states. Last year in Marion County, 278,500 pounds of nonperishable food was collected and donated to Interfaith Emergency Services for distribution to the Salvation Army, Brothers Keeper, St. Theresas Catholic Church and the Help Agency of the Forest food banks. The Ocala Post Office was ranked first in the nation in their union member category for the fifth year for the communitys outstanding effort in supporting this program. In Marion County alone, more than one million pounds of food has been collected. Postal customers are asked to hang a food donation on their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers the mail on Saturday, May 12, and the carrier will do the rest. Collection barrels will also be set up at all Post Office branches to accommodate those with Post Office Boxes. For individuals interested in volunteering for the collection and unloading/loading, please call Thomas Curtis at 352-572-5634. Service hours for high school students are available. United Way of Marion County, USPS, Campbells, Valpak, Feeding America, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association and AFLCIO have partnered with the NALC to help stamp out hunger.

Her love of grief an obsession over the death of her mother, the Duchess of Kent, distracted her from her husbands serious illness that led to his premature death at 42 in 1861. Her hysterical reactions to any bad news about Alberts condition prompted attending physicians to lie to her or soften any troubling turn of events. Thus, his unexpected death left her inconsolable and vowing to wear widows weeds until her death, a vow she kept for 40 years. Ironically, it was Alberts demise that finally made Victoria a queen to be reckoned with. In a letter to the King of Prussia she declared her life was over: For me, life came to an end on 14 December. My life was dependent on his. I had no thoughts except of him; my whole striving was to please him, to be less unworthy of him! Originally, Albert had been considered by the English as a German interloper. At court he was forbidden to see dispatches or even be present when the queen met her ministers. But in time his influence increased over affairs of state which bored Victoria. Added to that was her incapacity during nine pregnancies. Although he worked hard the simple truth was that he assumed power simply by sharing a bed with the queen. The nation went into an immediate state of protracted mourning. Victorias entire court dressed in black including fouryear-old Princess Beatrice. All festivities of any kind were canceled for indefinite periods, greatly irritating Charles Dickens, whose upcoming speaking event had been sold out. At first the nation sympathized with the queen but as she secluded herself for most of the year in Balmoral Castle in Scotland, neglecting her duties and shunning her people, resentment grew. Only a blunt, down-to-earth John Brown, groomsman, selfappointed bodyguard and eventually constant companion was able to coax her out of a decade of isolation. That and the near death of her eldest son Bertie seem to shake her alive. The woman who had lavished her devotion on Albert the man and tried to find justice for him in death was ready to return as queen to one-fifth of the worlds population. A magnificent read that makes readers long for more. Pat Wellington is a retired English professor, and freelance writer.

Daphne works at Stein mart along with offering an airport shuttle service. The two stay busy with not only their work but with the caring for their animals and their hobbies. Rica and Destin are the Delaneys two dogs. Rica was rescued from a trash dump and Destin was a refugee from Hurricane Katrina. They found a loving home and loving hands to care for them and they know it. The two puppies are affectionate, gentle and will become lap dogs once theyve been introduced to strangers. Not content with just taking care of their dogs, Tim and Daphne have also been known to take care of stray cattle. Because they live adjacent to the pasture, occasionally, a cow will get loose and graze on their front or back lawn. Its not unusual for Tim to come home and have to guide the animals back through the gate so they can rejoin the rest of the herd. One day, Daphne and Tim found a baby calf in their yard. Apparently the mother cow had died during childbirth because the little one was alone and scared. For a few days, until they could get a hold of the owner, they took in the orphaned infant. With advice from a veterinarian they purchased special formula and bottle fed the baby cow. Providing warmth, food, and loving care, they were able to save the wobbly legged youngster until the owner came and retrieved it. Their love is not only limited to animals however. Two years ago they went on a Christian Mission and returned to Daphnes native village of Puerto Cabezas. In cooperation with their Church, they brought $15,000 worth of food, clothing and other much needed supplies to the poor in that town. Especially in need of their help were the children of the village. That moment touched Daphne and Tim so much that they plan a return visit. Parents of Tim, John and Jeanne, live in Oak Run. His sister, Kathy lives in Syracuse and another sister, Julie, resides in Coral Springs. Daphnes folks, Roe and Carson, live in North Carolina and she has an aunt in West Palm Beach. Family get-togethers are frequent and fun. Biking and skiing are two of Tims favorite hobbies. While Florida offers few opportunities for skiing, he takes part in at least two races per year. The course he rides is 48 miles long so its quite a work out. He used to do 100 mile races but has toned that back in recent years. Everyone who knows Tim and Daphne say the same thing about them; They are the nicest people youll ever meet. Always a smile on his face, Tim feels richly blessed to have all that he and Daphne share here in Cherrywood; warm weather, light traffic, a good business and most of all, great people.From Your ReporterIf you have comments or suggestions for articles about Cherrywood or if theres something that you would like to see in this column please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

BY DWAYNE CLARK I think of myself as being educated in recognizing the signs of dementia. After all, I have been around people diagnosed with dementia for most of my life. I have probably met, assessed or observed over 10,000 dementia residents in the last three decades. Certainly I could quickly identify and recognize when someone was having signs of dementia. Well, that is what I thought. In 2000, it wasnt unusual for me to call my mom and chat 2-3 times a week. As a self-confessed mommas boy, I was always concerned about mom. During one of those phone calls, I could tell my mom was upset. She had accused the housekeeper of stealing some of her jewelry. I was mad at the housekeeper and ready to defend my moms position. Two days later, my sister found the jewelry in a box under my moms bed. A week later, I was having another phone conversation with my mom, this time she said the housekeeper was taking her car for joy rides, so she fired her that day. Again, I spoke with my sister who held the keys to moms car and said it had not been moved in a month.Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com If you are self-employed or retired youve already sent to the IRS your first estimated tax payment for 2012 real money based on income you havent received yet. Meanwhile, living nearby are some of the 46 percent of Americans who paid no taxes for 2011 and are unlikely to pay any in 2012. Our system of taxation is mysterious and corrupt. Tax laws are called a code because theyre supposed to be understandable rules for collection and payment of taxes. In reality our tax laws and IRS rulings are 70,000 pages of Washington gobbledygook, which include hundreds of loopholes. The Tax Code is a deceptive game of hide-in-plain-sight. One of my favorite deceptions was a politically influenced ruling that millions in earnings from a worldwide tour by a famous performer should be treated as profits from an investment of her body and voice, and taxed at the lower rate of capital gains. Depending on whom you know, warbling around the world in grand style can be construed as risk-taking. On the other hand singing Saturday night at a local nightclub to earn a few extra bucks on weekends is taxed at the higher rates of ordinary income. Some giant corporations also pay less tax than others for reasons not intended to be understood by ordinary taxpayers. Its all part of the game of politically preferred treatment for friends and supporters. How can we fix the goulash we refer to as the U.S. Tax Code? The only intelligent answer is to deposit the code, rulings, and forms 1040 AtoZ in a recycle trash bin and start anew. An attempt by Congress to reform the current tax code would most likely result in adding goo to the same old stew. There are a number of alternative ideas for raising revenue to run the government. Many European countries have a valueadded tax (VAT) on production. Its easy to collect and difficult to defraud, but it doesnt do away with all other taxes, and it tends to encourage bigger government. Then theres the Fair Tax, a national retail sales tax with refunds to help the less fortunate. Its almost as complicated as our present tax code. A fair tax bill has been gathering dust in Congress for more than a decade. Our favorite is a Flat Tax on all income, regardless of source salaries, benefits, bonuses, dividends, interest, inheritances, capital gains, gambling, lotteries and profits. Our vision is a tithe (ten percent) from income above the poverty level and from business profits. All citizens and business beneficiaries should have a financial stake in the success and well being of the nation. Editor, columnist, and television host Fareed Zakaria suggested playfully that the logical remedy for our corrupt and complex tax system would be a twopage tax code, with no room for loopholes, preferences, credits, exemptions, and exceptions. Theres a bumper sticker which describes a two-page Flat Tax: If 10% is enough for God, its enough for the IRS. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 20, 2012 Over the past few years, its been obvious that some people have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Those of us who have websites and e-mails have been part of the effort to educate the public on the use of electronics. Now the federal government is getting in the act. As you can read elsewhere, beginning March 1, 2013, the feds will get rid of all paper checks for benefits, including Social Security. No longer will you be rushing to your mailbox on a certain day of the month to get that check and take it to the bank. You will have a choice. You can either get direct deposit into a checking or savings account or, absent both of those, you can get a prepaid debit card. This will apply to more government benefit checks besides Social Security. A complete list is in the story that starts today on Page 1. Frankly, its hard to understand why anyone would not want direct deposit. The report of stolen or lost checks, especially Social Security, is astronomical. There is also the convenience of knowing that if you are temporarily unavailable, if youre sick or out of town, your money keeps flowing into your account, even if youre not there to cash a check. One thing that hasnt been mentioned much, as near as we can find out, is the effect on the U.S. Postal Service. Is this going to be costly to the postal people, who are going to lose a lot of business? Some might say they want to continue to use cash, and thats why they cash their Social Security check every month. Thats fine. Now you can cash one of your own checks every month and still get the cash. A debit card, of course, is just as good. You take your prepaid debit card to the store, pay for your items, and theres always a little question on the keypad: Do you want cash back? Thats how many of us get cash now without even bothering to go to the bank. If youre one of the 90 percent of Social Security recipients who already get direct deposit, nothing will change. But if youre in that other 10 percent, get ready for some changes. And please, keep the kicking and screaming down. It doesnt become you at all.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

If you've ever watched the television show "Law and Order," you've seen scenes from the Appellate Court and the state Supreme Court where both sides make their oral arguments. They stand in front of a podium which has three small lights, green, yellow and red, well in sight of the speaker. When he starts, the green light is on. When time is almost up, the yellow light comes on, and when time is up, the red light glows, and the lawyer immediately says thank you and sits down. Unfortunately, such discipline doesn't seem to apply to County Commission meetings. The county now has these little lights on the podium where members of the audience speak to the group. Those who took the trouble to get on the agenda ahead of time get five minutes. The others who wish to speak unannounced at the meeting get two minutes each. At last Tuesday's County Commission meeting, two speakers who did not get on the agenda stood up to speak, both about the taxing situation with Munroe Regional Medical Center. The first man spoke for 9 minutes and 8 seconds, and the second for 6 minutes and 30 seconds. One man got up after that and thanked the commissioners for not shutting off the speakers at the red light. We disagree. While people should have their say, they should have enough discipline to follow the rules. The commissioners should also have the fortitude to follow their rules and force spectators to abide by them. What's going to happen at the May 1 meeting if several people get up to speak and each one talks for six or nine minutes. The meeting could take forever, and now a precedent has been set. The commissioners won't be able to do anything about it, since they didn't enforce the rules this time around. Both speakers about the hospital made very good points, items that the commission should follow up on. And the commissioners should be praised for the fact that, unlike the School Board, they let the public speaker portion of the meeting be televised, even if the TV channel can't get the schedule straight (the digital schedule on Cox said it was a School Board meeting on TV that night). So a lot of things were done right. But let's streamline the process by following the rules, or let's change the rules so everyone knows where they stand.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Even at meetings, red light means stop No more mail for Social Security Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Simple honesty can fit on a bumper sticker Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEDEMENTIA, PAGE9 Getting past denial when it comes to dementia True justiceIn our judicial system, one is presumed innocent until proven guilty by a jury of his/her peers. I dont understand how people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can come into our state and viciously stir up racial unrest and pure hatred without being arrested for inciting a riot. We dont know all the details of our infamous shooting which resulted in a teenagers death, and neither do they. They came here specifically to fan the fires of racism. Where were they in other incidents that were even more violent? Where is their outrage over the delay in prosecuting the Fort Hood shooter for instance? The news media has added to the problem by continually showing two contrasting pictures of both the shooter and the victim.

I told my sister that this housekeeper was a real problem and seemed to be taunting Mom. My sister offered the thought that mom was becoming more forgetful and was starting to get up in the middle of the night and to have conversations with her sister who had passed away two decades earlier. My immediate inclination was that my mother was dehydrated. She must not be drinking enough water, and that was causing her to be confused. Or maybe it was a change of medication, and there was some drug interaction that could explain her behavior. My sister, hearing my diagnosis, took mom to see her doctor. Then I got the call from my sister that I dreaded. The doctor said mom was showing signs of dementia. Even though a medical professional had given this diagnosis, I still didnt want to believe it. Did he do a full blood work up, I asked? Did he do a urinalysis to see if she is dehydrated? I was sure that my mom had just suffered a momentary setback that could easily be explained. But it wasnt to be. From that day forward, her condition began to deteriorate. At first, my sister cared for her on her own. Then we hired staff to care for her in her home, and finally, she moved into one of my assisted living residences. She had become one of my customers. I missed all the signs I should have seen: Accusing people of stealing personal items. Speaking to relatives who have passed away as if they are still alive. Forgetting close family members names or memorable events. Fearing to go out after dark. Difficulty finding words. I wanted my mom to be the person I knew my whole life. I didnt know this new person, so I didnt want to acknowledge or recognize the disease. My own psyche wouldnt allow for my mom to be sick or take on symptoms of a disease I knew so well. As family members, we take on our own sense of denial about Alzheimers. We think that, by failing to acknowledge it, it will somehow go away. But it doesnt. Its calling gets louder and louder until you are forced to listen. My mother was put on a medication called Aricept soon after her diagnosis, and her condition improved in the short term. The best thing we can do as family members is to watch for what is normal and then make sure we give in to the reality of what possible decline might be, if not for us, then for them. Dwayne J.

As it stands right now, I see no way this man will get a fair trial, since he has already been convicted with calls for his prosecution. Frankly, I dont believe any of the above hypocrites are that interested in this shooting other than self promotion and to put our States Stand Your Ground Law under the national microscope to have it modified or outright repealed. Numerous articles have already appeared regarding the increase in the number of criminals shot to death by armed individuals who were protecting themselves from said criminals. I guess these troublemakers would be happier if the innocent victim were injured or killed. Go back to your state, we can take care of Florida, give the system a chance to work, and stop causing more problems. Wayne Rackley OcalaSaving jobs vs. creating jobsWhy isnt saving jobs considered the same as creating jobs. Is it because the unemployed people dont count to the states, only their current work force seems to matter? When President Obama gave a trillion dollars back to the states to use to create jobs, the states used this money to shore up their own budgets and keep their own people working rather than creating new jobs. These same states who used this money to pay state employees to remain on the payroll rather than create jobs and employ new people. The focus is to blame the president for what the states did in not creating new jobs but rather they used this money to protect themselves and their budget. The president still gets the blame for not creating jobs and the states look like heroes. There is no credit given to this administration for just saving jobs because these people were already working and their saved jobs dont seem to count in this terrible economy. We are not using stimulus money to create jobs but just to remain with the status quo of staying even. The business community has already created all the jobs they planned on creating, they just happen to be in foreign countries. Jerry Segovis Ocala BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenThe Obama administration argued to the U.S. Supreme Court recently that people must be compelled to buy medical insurance (designed by the government) or the national medical-insurance market will fail. Thus, Obamacare advocates say, the insurance mandate is consistent with the powers delegated under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The argument, however, contains a fatal flaw. If the medicalinsurance market would indeed fail without a mandate, its only because of other mandates the government has already imposed. Thus the government has created the rationale for an extension of its own power. The administration foresees two problems in the absence of the mandate. First, uninsured people will avoid routine and preventive medical care and go to hospital emergency rooms when they cant delay care any longer, raising costs to others. Second, some people will apply for insurance only after they are seriously ill. As a result, the insurance market will be dominated by sick people, making it unviable. Both problems are government creations: emergency rooms by law must treat everyone regardless of ability to pay, and new laws are increasingly restricting insurance companies right to refuse to cover preexisting conditions or to charge already sick people more. Thus it is the regulatory regime that makes the insurance market fragile. Furthermore, the emergencyroom issue is overstated. As Shikha Dalmia points out, such care is a bare 3 percent of total medical spending, less than the retail sectors loss from shoplifting. But even ignoring that point, a free and prosperous society would have charity hospitals and practitioners eager and able to help the relative few who could not afford care. A must-serve mandate is unjustified and unnecessary. The principal issue is insurance regulation. Imagine if you could purchase home insurance and demand payment after your house burned down, or if you could buy an auto policy and collect after an accident. Such coverage after the fact would not be true insurance, which is a hedge against uncertainty. Under those rules, insurers would exit the market for more profitable activities. Medical insurance is no different. For the industry to be viable, companies have to collect premiums while people are healthy in order to have the money to pay out when they get sick. Doesnt that prove the mandate is needed? No. In a free society, people would have natural incentives to buy insurance when they are healthy. Government destroys those incentives. How so? Young, healthy people of course will always be tempted to put off buying medical insurance. But this temptation would be reduced if we abolished all the government rules and privileges that make medical care and hence insurance artificially expensive. In myriad ways, government raises the cost of medicine: restrictive licensing, anti-competitive state insurance cartels, benefit mandates, and much more. All such interventions price people out of the medical market by making products and services more costly than they would be in a free and competitive marketplace. Government also raises prices to the uninsured by maintaining policies that insulate people with insurance from the true costs of their decisions. The income tax, which doesnt count non-cash compensation as income, makes otherwise uneconomical insurance attractive, while creating an illusion of free or nearly free services.

Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com are to indicate that insurance which covers volitional activities, such as the use of contraception, physical exams, and other preventive services, is not truly insurance.) When explicit prices are artificially lowered under an insurance illusion, people are less cost-conscious and thus consume more services than they would have. Much medical care is elective and nonessential, but under our government-shaped system, rather than asking, Do I need it and how much? people ask, Does my insurance cover it? This raises real costs for all, but it especially raises prices to people who have no insurance or who would buy it in the individual market, discouraging them from doing so. As a result, fewer young and healthy people pay premiums, weakening the insurance industry. This is purely a government-created problem. Government mandates are backed by aggressive force, which is immoral. The end does not justify the means. And if we want a thriving medical insurance market, we need only free it from restrictions and, most importantly, privilege. Freedom and competition really work.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were locked in a hopeless standoff. She was effectively arguing her side of the issue and I was, well, lets say I was not agreeing. I will not say who won, just that it wasnt me. She then looked at me, put both hands on her hips and said, Time will tell that Im right. I cannot wait. The problem is, time is never on my side. I simply do not know what it is about time, but it never does me any favors. Always, and I mean always, time proves my wife was right. I hate it. I thought it was supposed to be Father Time we are dealing with. If it is, he certainly does not have the male side of the issue in good grips. Why does time always prove my wife right? Perhaps Mother Nature has so bullied Father Time that he always takes up the side of my wife. The past week I have been thinking about this aspect of life: time. It seems that for the most part, we have put a lot of pressure upon time. For example, my wife keeps reminding me that time heals all wounds. If it was not for Time never seems to be on my side: Is it friend or enemy? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder time I would have no wounds, I retorted. I got in trouble just this past week because I was running out of time. I had to get across town for an appointment and believe me; time was not on my side. It would have been nice if I could just sit down with Father Time and negotiate a little bit. Would it be that hard for him to press the pause button and suspend time in order for me to catch up? Why is it so important that time keeps marching on? Why cant it, at least on the weekends, just take a slow stroll down memory lane? Often I look at my watch to determine if I have enough time to do a certain project. Time has become an austere taskmaster, refusing to give up one second. Think with me a little bit. Wouldnt it be nice to have every week just one do over moment? How hard would that be? Father Time insists on perfection always. He does not allow for screw-ups, which is rather pressing for me. If I could just have one 15minute period during the week that I could do over, I might be able to catch up a little. He wants me to be on time every time. When it is 2 p.m., it is only 2 p.m. for one second, that is all. I believe there is an error here somewhere. If time is so valuable, why cant I enjoy 2 p.m. for say, 15 minutes? But no, by the time I acknowledge that it is 2 p.m., Father Time is tapping his finger on his watch and saying, Lets keep moving because time waits for no man. At the very center of my life, and everybody elses as well, is the infamous clock representing time. And what a harsh, demanding element this invention has become. Who invented that clock in the first place? Why was it not good enough just to look at the sun and guess what time of day it was? If it was dark, it was time to go to sleep. If the sun was up and it was light outside, it was time to get up. Oh, how I miss those good old days. But no, Father Time tricked somebody into inventing a device that keeps time. Or, so Father Time convinced the unsuspecting inventor. The joke is on us who wear watches. No watch I have ever owned has ever kept time. All it does is show me that time is passing and I am late for an appointment. Where is that inventor that can invent some mechanism or some technology that can actually keep time? I would be the first one to buy such a contraption. Why cant Bill Gates come out of retirement and do something useful for humanity and invent the technology that actually keeps time. I would settle for half-hour increments. I could live with that. For many years now, time has not been on my side and neither has it been involved in the healing of any of my many wounds. Then never, contrary to what my wife says, has time ever told me anything. It just keeps on ticking while giving me a licking. I am older, but certainly, I am not any wiser. And I blame Father Time. He has not given me enough time to learn everything that I need to know. Every day it seems I am always running out of time. And I cannot believe it is my fault. Time marches on and I need to make the best of it as best I can. The apostle Paul understood the urgency of this matter we call time. He writes in his epistle, For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The only time we really have is now. I never have a now to do over so I need to make time my friend and not my enemy.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Read the classifieds Even though baseball season began several weeks ago, todays date marks some significant events in MLB history. In 1912 Fenway Park officially opened. In 1912 Tiger Stadium in Detroit opened and in 1916 Chicagos Wrigley Field had its first National League game. Here in Pun Alley we windup and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts.BeginningA rookie pitcher was struggling at the mound, so the catcher walked out to talk with him. Ive figured out your problem, he told the young southpaw. You always seem to lose control at the same point in every game. When is that? asked the pitcher. Right after the National Anthem.The big gameOn Mount Olympus, Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman deities Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-faced god of doors and beginnings. Everyone overdid it. Ceres at one point was staggering and rapidly turning in circles. Janus, equally submerged, was trying to dance with her. Bacchus feared that the pair might fall over, so he went to steady them. This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres was held with a doubleheader.Catch this oneA lady approached the catcher at a baseball-card autographing session and asked, What position do you play? The catcher replied, Sort of crouched down with my hands chest high.Short?The press was interviewing a sensational new shortstop, but the guy spoke so quietly no one could hear him. One of them finally asked the manager, Whats the matter with him? Nothing at all, replied the manager. Thats just the way the rookie mumbles.BuntsAfter their first game, the Marlins announced a ticket price increase because they cant sell beer the rest of the season. They lost their opener. Presidential candidates should concentrate on baseball players. That way they would get the swing voters. The slugger refused to join the union when he learned they might be called out on strikes. The piano tuner was hired to play on the baseball team because he had perfect pitch. One group plays baseball with coal instead of with a hardball. Its the miner league. One young woman at her first baseball game said she liked the pitcher best, because he hit the bat every time. She was called Baseball because they threw her out at home. Baseball is a game in which a young man who bravely strikes out for himself receives no praise for it. An eyefulA long time ago immortal pitcher Cy Young got bopped in the left eye with a line drive. He was told to wear a patch, but refused, saying it would hurt his depth perception. Still, before he went to the mound, his coach warned him to rely mostly on his sighted orb. Remember, said he, only the good eye, Young. FrozenIt was cold and windy, not a fit night out for man or beast, but the game was being played. Half-frozen, the manager ran out on the field to dispute a play. He called the umpire every name in the book, and some that were too obscene for the book. Finally the umpire said, Yell your head off. If I have to be out here, so do you! Semi baseballJimmy was never shy about reminding people that he played semi-pro baseball. My teammates used to call me James Bond, he was telling his friends. I had all sorts of tricks to confuse the opposition. That and he batted. 007, his wife added.Horse senseDuring spring training a baseball scout brought a racehorse with him to add to the starting lineup. The coach asked, Why did you bring that horse here? The scout replied, Wait until you see him bat. All the players laughed until the horse came to the plate holding a bat. The pitcher just threw the ball toward home plate, when astonishingly, the horse hit the ball deep in the outfield. The horse didnt move. The manager yelled at the baseball scout to tell the horse to run to first base. The scout looked back at the manager and replied, If he could run, hed be at Belmont!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Don't miss this great evening for a good cause!Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Amournful whistle in the night. Steam rising in a foggy mist. The clatter of wheels against a well-worn track. Children excited, others frightened, some holding treasured toys, some holding treasured memories. Save us, save us, the whispered prayers cry as they waft off into the wind. Two trains traveling in the night, one heading to freedom, the other to despair. At the twilight of the beginning of the Second World War, things were not good for the Jews of Germany and the occupied Nazi lands. The Jewish residents of these countries were stripped of their rights and were being rounded up and shot as part of the Nazi philosophy of virulent anti-Semitism and their domination as the Aryan race. To be a Jew anywhere in these occupied lands was dangerous and children were no exception. After Krystalnacht in November of 1938 when Jews businesses were systematically looted, synagogues burned and lives ruined, it was clear that the danger for European Jews was increasing. To this end, the British government devised a plan to rescue as many children as possible from harms reach. The plan allowed one child from a family (how could a mother make such a choice?) for a surety bond of 50 British pounds to escape on a train called the Kindertransport. This train would take children from 1 to 17 years of age from Nazi infested countries to live with families in Great Britain. Two trains traveled on into the night, one into the care of strangers, the other into the care of monsters. The British government helped through diplomatic means to rescue these children. It has been estimated that at least 10,000 children were saved in this way and were thus denied capture by the Nazis. Had they remained in the occupied areas of Czechoslovakia, Germany and Austria, they would have surely perished. Most of the children never saw their parents again. Most did not speak English. Between the traumas of losing parents, resettling in a foreign country and the threat of war, life for these children must have been very hard to bear. Two trains traveled on into the night. One headed West to freedom, the other headed East to hell. The first Kindertransport left a month after Krystalnacht. The last one left on Sept. 1, 1939, just as war broke out in Europe. The program was suspended and those children who remained faced an uncertain fate. Of those that arrived in Great Britain, many who came of age, joined the British armed forces as a way to fight back against their Nazi tormentors. It is believed that between 20 and 25 percent of those on the Kindertransport, emigrated to Canada or the United States. Two trains traveled on into the night. One was reaching its destination; the other was reaching the Final Destination. I once knew a survivor who was rescued on the Kindertransport. She was of Polish extraction and was placed with a family in Britain. She was about 10 at the time. At 17, she came to the United States and went to secretarial school. She later married and lived well in a Connecticut suburb. Last time I was in contact, she had moved to Lake Worth, Florida. I often wondered how hard it must have been for her losing most of her family and dealing with the horrors of war. Yet, Berta seemed to do well and was an excellent administrative assistant and was somehow able to bury her sorrow deep within the leaves of the book of her life. On April 19, Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, we will pause and remember the children who never made it to adulthood. We will remember those who saw their mothers raped, their infant siblings bayonetted or thrown like trash against walls, their fathers shot before them or starved to death. We will mourn the ones who might have found a cure for cancer, composed a symphony, or could have written beautiful poetry. We will mourn the innocent lives that were lost and sacrificed at the altar of hatred. Yes, we will mourn and we will remember. Two trains traveled on into the night. One ended into the loving arms of those in This World, the other ended into the loving arms of those in the Next. (While the Final Solution, the deportation and extermination of European Jews via trains to concentration camps did not begin until 1941, roundups had already begun during the time of Kindertransport. The train heading East was used for dramatic purposes. At the wars end, an estimated 1.5 million children had perished in the Holocaust. A special memorial to them can be viewed at Yad Vashem, Israels memorial to the Holocaust.) Source: various web resources. Judi Siegal and her husband, Phil, live in Sun Valley.

Suspect in Chevron burglary apprehended A 31-year-old Dunnellon man has been accused of commercial burglary and grand theft after his vehicle was stopped for an expired Georgia tag. David Joseph Morin of 52 N. Highway 41, was stopped by a deputy who said he received consent to search the vehicle and discovered several cartons of cigarattes. The deputy called Detective Greg Spicher from the Southwest District Office, who reportedly received a confession from Morin. After obtaining a search warrant, Spicher, the deputy, and a sergeant from Levy County went to Morins home. There, Morin reportedly showed deputies the item, a splitting maul, that he used to break in the door of the store at State Road 200 and County Road 484. They also discovered clothing, sneakers and some of the cigarettes taken from the burglaries in Marion County. The Chevron convenience store had been burglarized twice within a week. According to jail records, Morin was accused of three counts of burglary, three counts of grand theft, and one count of dealing in stolen property. His bond is set at a total of $40,000. He was booked in on Sunday, April 15, at 2:30 a.m. and as of Wednesday noon was still in the jail. In a misdemeanor theft, Christy Jane Sullivan, 24, of North Keel Drive, Hernando, was accused of taking a bra and a bikini bathing suit from Bealls on State Road 200 and leaving without paying for the items. She reportedly told the deputy that she was thrown out of her house the previous night and didnt have a bra to wear. She said she had nover done anything like this before, but jail records indicate she was arrested for petit theft 2nd offense. Her bond was set at $250 and she bonded out with a couple of hours of her arrest.

The club will be privileged to have as their guest Dan Nevins, director of Warriors Speak, a prestigious group of wounded warriors and caregivers who have been selected to share their personal, inspirational stories with the public. Dan was deployed to Iraq as an infantry squad leader. An explosive device detonated beneath his vehicle while on a combat mission and as a result he suffered a traumatic brain injury and eventually lost both legs below the knee. By sharing his own story and personal accomplishments (he recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with two of his fellow wounded warriors) Nevins is an inspiration to his peers and the warriors he serves. There will be a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommys Bar-b-que bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Tickets will be on sale April 28, May 5 and May 12 at a cost for members of $18, guests, $20. More details will be forthcoming on flyers, the Oak Run Newsletter, channel 12 and this column.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, April 10, we played the last day of our three-day Solheim Cup tournament. Team Europe women were dressed in blue and yellow and Team USA golfers wore red, white and blue. As reported last week, after the first 2 days Team US was leading Team Europe 8 1/2 points to 5 1/2 points. 14 points were up for grabs on Tuesday, April 10, and the Team USA women took advantage of those matches, winning 10 matches and tying 2 of them! Team Europe won 1 match and tied 2. The final score was Team USA 20 1/2 points and Team Europe 7 1/2 points. After golf we enjoyed a wonderful lunch prepared by the Royal Oaks staff. Team captains, JT Lemasters, Team USA, and Nancy Lefebvre, Team Europe, thanked their committee members who helped with all the planning and also thanked all the ROWGO members who participated this year, making this a very special tournament. Royal Oaks Mens Golf The final day of the two day Seniors Tournament was held on Friday the 13th! Despite the bad luck usually associated with the day the scores were good (for the most part), and the weather cooperated with a sunny and warm morning. The game was individual play, with a two day combined gross score and net score for each player. The players were divided into three categories, Juniors (under 70), Seniors W (mostly the lower handicaps), and Seniors R. Within each category were flights, with awards given for both the gross and net winners in each flight. There were 59 participants. And the winners were: Juniors Emmett Dowling (160 gross), John DeSalvo (145 net) Seniors W flight 1 Ron Catapano (160 gross), Hal Loomis/Dick Blackburn (137 net) Seniors W flight 2 Al Prachel (172 gross), Bill Staiger (142 net) Seniors W flight 3 Bruce Stover (168 gross), Showcase of Stars celebrates its 50th show Nevins OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE14 PHOTOS BY RON RATNEROak Run pipe installationMarion County Utilities is installing (above and below) a reclaimed water pipe to provide an alternate water supply to the Royal Oaks Golf Course.

On Monday evening starting at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse, residents gathered to share in some polish sausage; assorted snacks and desserts and to dance to the tunes of Ricky B. Red and White were the colors of the day and all of the tables and most of the residents were decked out appropriately. Laughter permeated the clubhouse as Peggy Konan and others went just slightly wild with their squirt guns. Rick Becotte played dances that ranged from the Twist; the Chicken Dance; Polish Polkas and everything in between. Couples and groups did waltzes and line dances; novelty steps and reels. Rick has a wide variety of music and plays it all to the delight of everyone. Rick Becotte; Bill Mahar; Peggy Konar; Jay and Fred OHern put the dance together and did a great job. Everything from the food, to the entertainment; the company to the door prizes was first class. Well done guys and gal.

For the sake of all those who gave up their tomorrows so we could have today, make this Memorial Day a special event in your life.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on Tim Delaney. Now before you think that either you or I have lost our minds, Tim was featured in the Citizen two weeks ago. Unfortunately, a large portion of the article was inadvertently omitted so we have corrected that by reprinting the article in its entirety this week. Tim is a native of Syracuse, New York and took the long route to find Florida and Cherrywood. After a brief career as a tailor, working needle and thread and the sales floor, Tim landed a job with US Airways in customer service. From Syracuse he was moved to Denver; then to Pittsburgh, Kansas city and finally to Orlando. He requested to go where Mickey lives to get out of the cold weather. In Orlando he found more than just sunshine; he found the sunshine of his life, his wife, Daphne. Daphne, a native of Nicaragua who moved to the United States when she was four years old, was working at the airport coffee shop. The pair began dating and fell in love. Unfortunately, shortly after, the tragedy of 9/11 struck and the airlines were hit with layoffs. Tim and Daphne moved to Cherrywood and Tim took a job with the Ocala Hilton. The hospitality industry was hit hard by the economic problems following the tragic terrorist attack and again, Tim was laid off. Beginning a new profession in Home Improvement, Tim started up his own company. That was al-Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Cherrywood Estates will hold its community wide yard sale on Saturday, April 21 and the public is invited to come in and visit the open garages and driveways filled with bargains.

Our residents will put out their goods prior to 8 in the morning so that they will be ready to serve everyone when the sale begins. If youre not the type of person who likes to get up early, theres no problem; you can shop until 1 in the afternoon and still get good deals.Health Fair a winnerVisitors and residents were treated to a magnificent Health Fair on Saturday, the 14th. People who attended learned a lot about maintaining our health and well being as we grow older. Vendors were there to display their goods for making life better and easier. Classes were given on food and nutrition; muscle and joint maintenance in older people; back pain and even a class on What are you Drinking? Coffee, tea, breakfast pastries and lemonade were served in the morning with a special lunch plate served up from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Tuna fish sandwiches, fruit cup, chips and beverages were made by the Activities Committee. Free blood pressure exams; hearing checks; advice on home improvements for those with limited abilities and even specialized lingerie were available to all who came. Too numerous to mention, all of the presenters and vendors were pleased with the turn out and those who attended were equally pleased with all that was available.Derby Day at CherrywoodLadies, get your hats decorated and ready for the May 5 Kentucky Derby Public invited to community yard sale on Saturday CHERRYWOOD ESTATES J EJohn Everlove Good crowds attended the health fair at Cherrywood.

Immediately following the race, dance to the tunes of Richard Becotte, our favorite DJ to round out the evening in a special way. See you on May 5.Accordions and more at the ClubhouseThis Wednesday, April 25, at 5:30 p.m., the Accordion Club will tune up and provide another evening of excellent entertainment for all who wish to attend.

See you at the movies. Ladies Luncheon a HitOn Wednesday, April 11, our Ladies Luncheon was held in the Clubhouse with guest speaker Roy Mitchell from SECO presenting an update on hurricane preparedness. Everyone brought food to pass and share and it was delicious. (Your reporter snuck in to cover the festivities) Scalloped potatoes; meatballs and noodles; Quiche; Jell-o salad; green bean salad; cakes; pies; cookies and other assorted goodies filled the well decorated tables. Zoe Milnes who has been running the luncheon for the past year was a gracious hostess; making everyone feel welcome and making sure everyone was well fed. Roy Mitchell is an excellent presenter. Speaking with the aid of the large screen, he spoke about the automated GPS system that gives repair crews not only the places that need immediate attention, but also the equipment that is needed once they get on scene. Caution was stressed when dealing with downed lines; lines in the trees and shrubs and flowers around the electrical boxes that some folks have in their yards. After a strong presentation of safety and storm damage assessment, Roy gave out a brochure with helpful tips and survival recommendations to be followed in an emergency. Just eight years ago, 2004, Florida was hit with three major storms, making it the year of the hurricanes. SECO learned much from that years devastation and Roy made sure that everyone at the luncheon benefited from that learning experience. To get Mr. Mitchell to speak to your organization, call 352-237-4107. On May 9 from noon until 1:30 p.m., the Ladies will hold their final luncheon of the season (they dont meet during the summer months) at Logans Steak House. For reservations, see Geri in the office and come out for this opportunity to share in friendship and fellowship with the Ladies of Cherrywood.

The film starts promptly at 7 p.m., so come in a little earlier; get good seats and sit back with your family and friends and enjoy. Just a word of warning; you may want to bring an extra handkerchief with you as this one is a real tear jerker. Exciting with a lot of adventure, but War Horse is also emotionally gripping. See you at the movies. Ladies Luncheon a HitOn Wednesday, April 11, our Ladies Luncheon was held in the Clubhouse with guest speaker Roy Mitchell from SECO presenting an update on hurricane preparedness. Everyone brought food to pass and share and it was delicious. (Your reporter snuck in to cover the festivities) Scalloped potatoes; meatballs and noodles; Quiche; Jell-o salad; green bean salad; cakes; pies; cookies and other assorted goodies filled the well decorated tables. Zoe Milnes who has been running the luncheon for the past year was a gracious hostess; making everyone feel welcome and making sure everyone was well fed. Roy Mitchell is an excellent presenter. Speaking with the aid of the large screen, he spoke about the automated GPS system that gives repair crews not only the places that need immediate attention, but also the equipment that is needed once they get on scene. Caution was stressed when dealing with downed lines; lines in the trees and shrubs and flowers around the electrical boxes that some folks have in their yards. After a strong presentation of safety and storm damage assessment, Roy gave out a brochure with helpful tips and survival recommendations to be followed in an emergency. Just eight years ago, 2004, Florida was hit with three major storms, making it the year of the hurricanes. SECO learned much from that years devastation and Roy made sure that everyone at the luncheon benefited from that learning experience. To get Mr. Mitchell to speak to your organization, call 352-237-4107. On May 9 from noon until 1:30 p.m., the Ladies will hold their final luncheon of the season (they dont meet during the summer months) at Logans Steak House. For reservations, see Geri in the office and come out for this opportunity to share in friendship and fellowship with the Ladies of Cherrywood.

Door prizes of floral center pieces were awarded and 50/50 winners were given cash. At the conclusion of the program, Zoe Milnes received a warm round of applause in appreciation for all the hard work shes put into the Ladies Luncheons over this past year.Dyngus Day DelightDyngus Day, a Polish holiday observed the Monday after Easter to celebrate the end of the sacrifices of the Lenten Season, is alive and well at Cherrywood. On Monday evening starting at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse, residents gathered to share in some polish sausage; assorted snacks and desserts and to dance to the tunes of Ricky B. Red and White were the colors of the day and all of the tables and most of the residents were decked out appropriately. Laughter permeated the clubhouse as Peggy Konan and others went just slightly wild with their squirt guns. Rick Becotte played dances that ranged from the Twist; the Chicken Dance; Polish Polkas and everything in between. Couples and groups did waltzes and line dances; novelty steps and reels. Rick has a wide variety of music and plays it all to the delight of everyone. Rick Becotte; Bill Mahar; Peggy Konar; Jay and Fred OHern put the dance together and did a great job. Everything from the food, to the entertainment; the company to the door prizes was first class. Well done guys and gal. Photo ClubOn Friday, April 13, the Cherrywood Photo Club held its first meeting. Nancy Frost was the guest speaker and she brought a lot of information to us about several subjects. Nancy discussed such things as photo composition, color/Black & white photography; digital and SLR picture taking plus how to organize a club of this type. If this is the type of club that would be of interest to you, you are cordially invited to join us on Wednesday, April 25 at 10 a.m. in the card room of the Clubhouse. Coffee and snacks will be available so grab your camera and come on out to learn; teach and share. For those of you who dont have grandchildren around to teach you how to use your digital camera, this is a great opportunity for you to learn and for those who are experienced photographers, this is a great chance for you to share your knowledge. Win a cruiseTickets are still available to win a three day Bahamas cruise on the Royal Caribbean Cruise line. This trip for two includes fees; port taxes; gratuities and a hundred dollars in spending money. The Veterans Club is selling these raffle tickets for just $10 a piece or three for $20. Thats a great deal! Get your tickets from Geri, Rich Hurley or Bill Mahar. The drawing will be on Memorial Day and you dont have to be present to win; in fact, you dont even have to be a Cherrywood resident to win so get your tickets soon. BingoEvery Thursday at 7 p.m., the Cherrywood Clubhouse is home to bingo. Theres fun; excitement; and money to be made on every game to say nothing about the friendships you can develop. Bingo is inexpensive, fun and often rewarding so be sure to come on out and enjoy an evening of fun and games.Comedy NightOn May 18, Cherrywood residents are in for a special treat. Its Comedy Night with special guest star, Mark Alan. Tickets are only $1 to watch this amazing talent. Enjoy his novel take of mixing comedy with magic at 6 p.m. Tickets are only $1 for the whole evening. Immediately following Mark, our own Ricky B will crank up the tunes for a fun filled evening of dancing, with all of the usual raffles and a 50/50 drawing included with the price of your ticket. Snacks and free coffee or lemonade will be available but feel free to bring your own beverages too. See Geri for tickets and mark you calendar. You dont want to miss this great night of fun, surprises and entertainment. More details will follow in later editions of the Citizen.Bocce Ball has new timeFor all of you who enjoy the Bocce Ball evenings on Saturday please make a note that the new starting time is 8 p.m. Every Saturday a group of welcoming residents head out to the Bocce Court behind the clubhouse to play, or socialize and usually, do both. In the event of a rain storm, the crowd retreats to the Clubhouse to enjoy a few adult beverages or soft drinks and share the good times that being with friends brings. Bocce is a blast so dont miss your chance to learn a great game and meet some equally great people. If youre a newcomer to the game or to the group, youre cordially invited to stop on by. Remember, strangers are just people we havent met yet and you wont be a stranger for long with this fun loving group.Veterans Club meetingOn May 3 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will meet to put the finishing touches on the Memorial Ceremony and to discuss the upcoming issues facing the club in the next year. You can be a veteran; a family member of a veteran or just a good citizen to come to the meeting. If you are interested in joining the Veterans Club, see a member for details or just come on out to the meeting. Remember that Armed Forces Day is May 19 and traditional Memorial Day is May 30. The Veterans Club will hold a service honoring our fallen comrades at noon on the 30th followed by a down home picnic. Tickets are $7 that will provide hamburgers; hot dogs; potato salad; and home made beans. Pot luck desserts, lemonade and coffee will also be available plus you can bring your own beverages of choice as well. Our guest speaker will be Maj. Morrey Dean, U.S. Army (Ret). Music will be provided by Rich Becotte and at 2 p.m., we will draw for the winner of the three day cruise to the Bahamas. Tickets for the drawing are available right up until 2 oclock so dont miss out on your chance to win. Memorial Day is a time when we honor those who gave their all so that we might enjoy the blessings of freedom. We take time out of our schedules to honor their memory and to say Thank you for their sacrifice. For the sake of all those who gave up their tomorrows so we could have today, make this Memorial Day a special event in your life.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we bring you a glimpse of someone in our community who has an interesting past; a promising future or just makes Cherrywood a nicer place to live. This week the spotlight is on Tim Delaney. Now before you think that either you or I have lost our minds, Tim was featured in the Citizen two weeks ago. Unfortunately, a large portion of the article was inadvertently omitted so we have corrected that by reprinting the article in its entirety this week. Tim is a native of Syracuse, New York and took the long route to find Florida and Cherrywood. After a brief career as a tailor, working needle and thread and the sales floor, Tim landed a job with US Airways in customer service. From Syracuse he was moved to Denver; then to Pittsburgh, Kansas city and finally to Orlando. He requested to go where Mickey lives to get out of the cold weather. In Orlando he found more than just sunshine; he found the sunshine of his life, his wife, Daphne. Daphne, a native of Nicaragua who moved to the United States when she was four years old, was working at the airport coffee shop. The pair began dating and fell in love. Unfortunately, shortly after, the tragedy of 9/11 struck and the airlines were hit with layoffs. Tim and Daphne moved to Cherrywood and Tim took a job with the Ocala Hilton. The hospitality industry was hit hard by the economic problems following the tragic terrorist attack and again, Tim was laid off. Beginning a new profession in Home Improvement, Tim started up his own company.

People who attended learned a lot about maintaining our health and well being as we grow older. Vendors were there to display their goods for making life better and easier. Classes were given on food and nutrition; muscle and joint maintenance in older people; back pain and even a class on What are you Drinking? Coffee, tea, breakfast pastries and lemonade were served in the morning with a special lunch plate served up from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Tuna fish sandwiches, fruit cup, chips and beverages were made by the Activities Committee. Free blood pressure exams; hearing checks; advice on home improvements for those with limited abilities and even specialized lingerie were available to all who came. Too numerous to mention, all of the presenters and vendors were pleased with the turn out and those who attended were equally pleased with all that was available.Derby Day at CherrywoodLadies, get your hats decorated and ready for the May 5 Kentucky Derby Public invited to community yard sale on Saturday CHERRYWOOD ESTATES J EJohn Everlove Good crowds attended the health fair at Cherrywood.

The club will be privileged to have as their guest Dan Nevins, director of Warriors Speak, a prestigious group of wounded warriors and caregivers who have been selected to share their personal, inspirational stories with the public. Dan was deployed to Iraq as an infantry squad leader. An explosive device detonated beneath his vehicle while on a combat mission and as a result he suffered a traumatic brain injury and eventually lost both legs below the knee. By sharing his own story and personal accomplishments (he recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with two of his fellow wounded warriors) Nevins is an inspiration to his peers and the warriors he serves. There will be a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommys Bar-b-que bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Tickets will be on sale April 28, May 5 and May 12 at a cost for members of $18, guests, $20. More details will be forthcoming on flyers, the Oak Run Newsletter, channel 12 and this column.

Don't miss this great evening for a good cause!Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Amournful whistle in the night. Steam rising in a foggy mist. The clatter of wheels against a well-worn track. Children excited, others frightened, some holding treasured toys, some holding treasured memories. Save us, save us, the whispered prayers cry as they waft off into the wind. Two trains traveling in the night, one heading to freedom, the other to despair. At the twilight of the beginning of the Second World War, things were not good for the Jews of Germany and the occupied Nazi lands. The Jewish residents of these countries were stripped of their rights and were being rounded up and shot as part of the Nazi philosophy of virulent anti-Semitism and their domination as the Aryan race. To be a Jew anywhere in these occupied lands was dangerous and children were no exception. After Krystalnacht in November of 1938 when Jews businesses were systematically looted, synagogues burned and lives ruined, it was clear that the danger for European Jews was increasing. To this end, the British government devised a plan to rescue as many children as possible from harms reach. The plan allowed one child from a family (how could a mother make such a choice?) for a surety bond of 50 British pounds to escape on a train called the Kindertransport. This train would take children from 1 to 17 years of age from Nazi infested countries to live with families in Great Britain. Two trains traveled on into the night, one into the care of strangers, the other into the care of monsters. The British government helped through diplomatic means to rescue these children. It has been estimated that at least 10,000 children were saved in this way and were thus denied capture by the Nazis. Had they remained in the occupied areas of Czechoslovakia, Germany and Austria, they would have surely perished. Most of the children never saw their parents again. Most did not speak English. Between the traumas of losing parents, resettling in a foreign country and the threat of war, life for these children must have been very hard to bear. Two trains traveled on into the night. One headed West to freedom, the other headed East to hell. The first Kindertransport left a month after Krystalnacht. The last one left on Sept. 1, 1939, just as war broke out in Europe. The program was suspended and those children who remained faced an uncertain fate. Of those that arrived in Great Britain, many who came of age, joined the British armed forces as a way to fight back against their Nazi tormentors. It is believed that between 20 and 25 percent of those on the Kindertransport, emigrated to Canada or the United States. Two trains traveled on into the night. One was reaching its destination; the other was reaching the Final Destination. I once knew a survivor who was rescued on the Kindertransport. She was of Polish extraction and was placed with a family in Britain. She was about 10 at the time. At 17, she came to the United States and went to secretarial school. She later married and lived well in a Connecticut suburb. Last time I was in contact, she had moved to Lake Worth, Florida. I often wondered how hard it must have been for her losing most of her family and dealing with the horrors of war. Yet, Berta seemed to do well and was an excellent administrative assistant and was somehow able to bury her sorrow deep within the leaves of the book of her life. On April 19, Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, we will pause and remember the children who never made it to adulthood. We will remember those who saw their mothers raped, their infant siblings bayonetted or thrown like trash against walls, their fathers shot before them or starved to death. We will mourn the ones who might have found a cure for cancer, composed a symphony, or could have written beautiful poetry. We will mourn the innocent lives that were lost and sacrificed at the altar of hatred. Yes, we will mourn and we will remember. Two trains traveled on into the night. One ended into the loving arms of those in This World, the other ended into the loving arms of those in the Next. (While the Final Solution, the deportation and extermination of European Jews via trains to concentration camps did not begin until 1941, roundups had already begun during the time of Kindertransport. The train heading East was used for dramatic purposes. At the wars end, an estimated 1.5 million children had perished in the Holocaust. A special memorial to them can be viewed at Yad Vashem, Israels memorial to the Holocaust.) Source: various web resources. Judi Siegal and her husband, Phil, live in Sun Valley.

Suspect in Chevron burglary apprehended A 31-year-old Dunnellon man has been accused of commercial burglary and grand theft after his vehicle was stopped for an expired Georgia tag. David Joseph Morin of 52 N. Highway 41, was stopped by a deputy who said he received consent to search the vehicle and discovered several cartons of cigarattes. The deputy called Detective Greg Spicher from the Southwest District Office, who reportedly received a confession from Morin. After obtaining a search warrant, Spicher, the deputy, and a sergeant from Levy County went to Morins home. There, Morin reportedly showed deputies the item, a splitting maul, that he used to break in the door of the store at State Road 200 and County Road 484. They also discovered clothing, sneakers and some of the cigarettes taken from the burglaries in Marion County. The Chevron convenience store had been burglarized twice within a week. According to jail records, Morin was accused of three counts of burglary, three counts of grand theft, and one count of dealing in stolen property. His bond is set at a total of $40,000. He was booked in on Sunday, April 15, at 2:30 a.m. and as of Wednesday noon was still in the jail. In a misdemeanor theft, Christy Jane Sullivan, 24, of North Keel Drive, Hernando, was accused of taking a bra and a bikini bathing suit from Bealls on State Road 200 and leaving without paying for the items. She reportedly told the deputy that she was thrown out of her house the previous night and didnt have a bra to wear. She said she had nover done anything like this before, but jail records indicate she was arrested for petit theft 2nd offense. Her bond was set at $250 and she bonded out with a couple of hours of her arrest.

Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com are to indicate that insurance which covers volitional activities, such as the use of contraception, physical exams, and other preventive services, is not truly insurance.) When explicit prices are artificially lowered under an insurance illusion, people are less cost-conscious and thus consume more services than they would have. Much medical care is elective and nonessential, but under our government-shaped system, rather than asking, Do I need it and how much? people ask, Does my insurance cover it? This raises real costs for all, but it especially raises prices to people who have no insurance or who would buy it in the individual market, discouraging them from doing so. As a result, fewer young and healthy people pay premiums, weakening the insurance industry. This is purely a government-created problem. Government mandates are backed by aggressive force, which is immoral. The end does not justify the means. And if we want a thriving medical insurance market, we need only free it from restrictions and, most importantly, privilege. Freedom and competition really work.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were locked in a hopeless standoff. She was effectively arguing her side of the issue and I was, well, lets say I was not agreeing. I will not say who won, just that it wasnt me. She then looked at me, put both hands on her hips and said, Time will tell that Im right. I cannot wait. The problem is, time is never on my side. I simply do not know what it is about time, but it never does me any favors. Always, and I mean always, time proves my wife was right. I hate it. I thought it was supposed to be Father Time we are dealing with. If it is, he certainly does not have the male side of the issue in good grips. Why does time always prove my wife right? Perhaps Mother Nature has so bullied Father Time that he always takes up the side of my wife. The past week I have been thinking about this aspect of life: time. It seems that for the most part, we have put a lot of pressure upon time. For example, my wife keeps reminding me that time heals all wounds. If it was not for Time never seems to be on my side: Is it friend or enemy? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder time I would have no wounds, I retorted. I got in trouble just this past week because I was running out of time. I had to get across town for an appointment and believe me; time was not on my side. It would have been nice if I could just sit down with Father Time and negotiate a little bit. Would it be that hard for him to press the pause button and suspend time in order for me to catch up? Why is it so important that time keeps marching on? Why cant it, at least on the weekends, just take a slow stroll down memory lane? Often I look at my watch to determine if I have enough time to do a certain project. Time has become an austere taskmaster, refusing to give up one second. Think with me a little bit. Wouldnt it be nice to have every week just one do over moment? How hard would that be? Father Time insists on perfection always. He does not allow for screw-ups, which is rather pressing for me. If I could just have one 15minute period during the week that I could do over, I might be able to catch up a little. He wants me to be on time every time. When it is 2 p.m., it is only 2 p.m. for one second, that is all. I believe there is an error here somewhere. If time is so valuable, why cant I enjoy 2 p.m. for say, 15 minutes? But no, by the time I acknowledge that it is 2 p.m., Father Time is tapping his finger on his watch and saying, Lets keep moving because time waits for no man. At the very center of my life, and everybody elses as well, is the infamous clock representing time. And what a harsh, demanding element this invention has become. Who invented that clock in the first place? Why was it not good enough just to look at the sun and guess what time of day it was? If it was dark, it was time to go to sleep. If the sun was up and it was light outside, it was time to get up. Oh, how I miss those good old days. But no, Father Time tricked somebody into inventing a device that keeps time. Or, so Father Time convinced the unsuspecting inventor. The joke is on us who wear watches. No watch I have ever owned has ever kept time. All it does is show me that time is passing and I am late for an appointment. Where is that inventor that can invent some mechanism or some technology that can actually keep time? I would be the first one to buy such a contraption. Why cant Bill Gates come out of retirement and do something useful for humanity and invent the technology that actually keeps time. I would settle for half-hour increments. I could live with that. For many years now, time has not been on my side and neither has it been involved in the healing of any of my many wounds. Then never, contrary to what my wife says, has time ever told me anything. It just keeps on ticking while giving me a licking. I am older, but certainly, I am not any wiser. And I blame Father Time. He has not given me enough time to learn everything that I need to know. Every day it seems I am always running out of time. And I cannot believe it is my fault. Time marches on and I need to make the best of it as best I can. The apostle Paul understood the urgency of this matter we call time. He writes in his epistle, For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The only time we really have is now. I never have a now to do over so I need to make time my friend and not my enemy.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Read the classifieds Even though baseball season began several weeks ago, todays date marks some significant events in MLB history. In 1912 Fenway Park officially opened. In 1912 Tiger Stadium in Detroit opened and in 1916 Chicagos Wrigley Field had its first National League game. Here in Pun Alley we windup and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts.BeginningA rookie pitcher was struggling at the mound, so the catcher walked out to talk with him. Ive figured out your problem, he told the young southpaw. You always seem to lose control at the same point in every game. When is that? asked the pitcher. Right after the National Anthem.The big gameOn Mount Olympus, Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman deities Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-faced god of doors and beginnings. Everyone overdid it. Ceres at one point was staggering and rapidly turning in circles. Janus, equally submerged, was trying to dance with her. Bacchus feared that the pair might fall over, so he went to steady them. This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres was held with a doubleheader.Catch this oneA lady approached the catcher at a baseball-card autographing session and asked, What position do you play? The catcher replied, Sort of crouched down with my hands chest high.Short?The press was interviewing a sensational new shortstop, but the guy spoke so quietly no one could hear him. One of them finally asked the manager, Whats the matter with him? Nothing at all, replied the manager. Thats just the way the rookie mumbles.BuntsAfter their first game, the Marlins announced a ticket price increase because they cant sell beer the rest of the season. They lost their opener. Presidential candidates should concentrate on baseball players. That way they would get the swing voters. The slugger refused to join the union when he learned they might be called out on strikes. The piano tuner was hired to play on the baseball team because he had perfect pitch. One group plays baseball with coal instead of with a hardball. Its the miner league. One young woman at her first baseball game said she liked the pitcher best, because he hit the bat every time. She was called Baseball because they threw her out at home. Baseball is a game in which a young man who bravely strikes out for himself receives no praise for it. An eyefulA long time ago immortal pitcher Cy Young got bopped in the left eye with a line drive. He was told to wear a patch, but refused, saying it would hurt his depth perception. Still, before he went to the mound, his coach warned him to rely mostly on his sighted orb. Remember, said he, only the good eye, Young. FrozenIt was cold and windy, not a fit night out for man or beast, but the game was being played. Half-frozen, the manager ran out on the field to dispute a play. He called the umpire every name in the book, and some that were too obscene for the book. Finally the umpire said, Yell your head off. If I have to be out here, so do you! Semi baseballJimmy was never shy about reminding people that he played semi-pro baseball. My teammates used to call me James Bond, he was telling his friends. I had all sorts of tricks to confuse the opposition. That and he batted. 007, his wife added.Horse senseDuring spring training a baseball scout brought a racehorse with him to add to the starting lineup. The coach asked, Why did you bring that horse here? The scout replied, Wait until you see him bat. All the players laughed until the horse came to the plate holding a bat. The pitcher just threw the ball toward home plate, when astonishingly, the horse hit the ball deep in the outfield. The horse didnt move. The manager yelled at the baseball scout to tell the horse to run to first base. The scout looked back at the manager and replied, If he could run, hed be at Belmont!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

I told my sister that this housekeeper was a real problem and seemed to be taunting Mom. My sister offered the thought that mom was becoming more forgetful and was starting to get up in the middle of the night and to have conversations with her sister who had passed away two decades earlier. My immediate inclination was that my mother was dehydrated. She must not be drinking enough water, and that was causing her to be confused. Or maybe it was a change of medication, and there was some drug interaction that could explain her behavior. My sister, hearing my diagnosis, took mom to see her doctor. Then I got the call from my sister that I dreaded. The doctor said mom was showing signs of dementia. Even though a medical professional had given this diagnosis, I still didnt want to believe it. Did he do a full blood work up, I asked? Did he do a urinalysis to see if she is dehydrated? I was sure that my mom had just suffered a momentary setback that could easily be explained. But it wasnt to be. From that day forward, her condition began to deteriorate. At first, my sister cared for her on her own. Then we hired staff to care for her in her home, and finally, she moved into one of my assisted living residences. She had become one of my customers. I missed all the signs I should have seen: Accusing people of stealing personal items. Speaking to relatives who have passed away as if they are still alive. Forgetting close family members names or memorable events. Fearing to go out after dark. Difficulty finding words. I wanted my mom to be the person I knew my whole life. I didnt know this new person, so I didnt want to acknowledge or recognize the disease. My own psyche wouldnt allow for my mom to be sick or take on symptoms of a disease I knew so well. As family members, we take on our own sense of denial about Alzheimers. We think that, by failing to acknowledge it, it will somehow go away. But it doesnt. Its calling gets louder and louder until you are forced to listen. My mother was put on a medication called Aricept soon after her diagnosis, and her condition improved in the short term. The best thing we can do as family members is to watch for what is normal and then make sure we give in to the reality of what possible decline might be, if not for us, then for them. Dwayne J.

Numerous articles have already appeared regarding the increase in the number of criminals shot to death by armed individuals who were protecting themselves from said criminals. I guess these troublemakers would be happier if the innocent victim were injured or killed. Go back to your state, we can take care of Florida, give the system a chance to work, and stop causing more problems. Wayne Rackley OcalaSaving jobs vs. creating jobsWhy isnt saving jobs considered the same as creating jobs. Is it because the unemployed people dont count to the states, only their current work force seems to matter? When President Obama gave a trillion dollars back to the states to use to create jobs, the states used this money to shore up their own budgets and keep their own people working rather than creating new jobs. These same states who used this money to pay state employees to remain on the payroll rather than create jobs and employ new people. The focus is to blame the president for what the states did in not creating new jobs but rather they used this money to protect themselves and their budget. The president still gets the blame for not creating jobs and the states look like heroes. There is no credit given to this administration for just saving jobs because these people were already working and their saved jobs dont seem to count in this terrible economy. We are not using stimulus money to create jobs but just to remain with the status quo of staying even. The business community has already created all the jobs they planned on creating, they just happen to be in foreign countries. Jerry Segovis Ocala BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenThe Obama administration argued to the U.S. Supreme Court recently that people must be compelled to buy medical insurance (designed by the government) or the national medical-insurance market will fail. Thus, Obamacare advocates say, the insurance mandate is consistent with the powers delegated under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The argument, however, contains a fatal flaw. If the medicalinsurance market would indeed fail without a mandate, its only because of other mandates the government has already imposed. Thus the government has created the rationale for an extension of its own power. The administration foresees two problems in the absence of the mandate. First, uninsured people will avoid routine and preventive medical care and go to hospital emergency rooms when they cant delay care any longer, raising costs to others. Second, some people will apply for insurance only after they are seriously ill. As a result, the insurance market will be dominated by sick people, making it unviable. Both problems are government creations: emergency rooms by law must treat everyone regardless of ability to pay, and new laws are increasingly restricting insurance companies right to refuse to cover preexisting conditions or to charge already sick people more. Thus it is the regulatory regime that makes the insurance market fragile. Furthermore, the emergencyroom issue is overstated. As Shikha Dalmia points out, such care is a bare 3 percent of total medical spending, less than the retail sectors loss from shoplifting. But even ignoring that point, a free and prosperous society would have charity hospitals and practitioners eager and able to help the relative few who could not afford care. A must-serve mandate is unjustified and unnecessary. The principal issue is insurance regulation. Imagine if you could purchase home insurance and demand payment after your house burned down, or if you could buy an auto policy and collect after an accident. Such coverage after the fact would not be true insurance, which is a hedge against uncertainty. Under those rules, insurers would exit the market for more profitable activities. Medical insurance is no different. For the industry to be viable, companies have to collect premiums while people are healthy in order to have the money to pay out when they get sick. Doesnt that prove the mandate is needed? No. In a free society, people would have natural incentives to buy insurance when they are healthy. Government destroys those incentives. How so? Young, healthy people of course will always be tempted to put off buying medical insurance. But this temptation would be reduced if we abolished all the government rules and privileges that make medical care and hence insurance artificially expensive. In myriad ways, government raises the cost of medicine: restrictive licensing, anti-competitive state insurance cartels, benefit mandates, and much more. All such interventions price people out of the medical market by making products and services more costly than they would be in a free and competitive marketplace. Government also raises prices to the uninsured by maintaining policies that insulate people with insurance from the true costs of their decisions. The income tax, which doesnt count non-cash compensation as income, makes otherwise uneconomical insurance attractive, while creating an illusion of free or nearly free services.

BY DWAYNE CLARK I think of myself as being educated in recognizing the signs of dementia. After all, I have been around people diagnosed with dementia for most of my life. I have probably met, assessed or observed over 10,000 dementia residents in the last three decades. Certainly I could quickly identify and recognize when someone was having signs of dementia. Well, that is what I thought. In 2000, it wasnt unusual for me to call my mom and chat 2-3 times a week. As a self-confessed mommas boy, I was always concerned about mom. During one of those phone calls, I could tell my mom was upset. She had accused the housekeeper of stealing some of her jewelry. I was mad at the housekeeper and ready to defend my moms position. Two days later, my sister found the jewelry in a box under my moms bed. A week later, I was having another phone conversation with my mom, this time she said the housekeeper was taking her car for joy rides, so she fired her that day. Again, I spoke with my sister who held the keys to moms car and said it had not been moved in a month.Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com If you are self-employed or retired youve already sent to the IRS your first estimated tax payment for 2012 real money based on income you havent received yet. Meanwhile, living nearby are some of the 46 percent of Americans who paid no taxes for 2011 and are unlikely to pay any in 2012. Our system of taxation is mysterious and corrupt. Tax laws are called a code because theyre supposed to be understandable rules for collection and payment of taxes. In reality our tax laws and IRS rulings are 70,000 pages of Washington gobbledygook, which include hundreds of loopholes. The Tax Code is a deceptive game of hide-in-plain-sight. One of my favorite deceptions was a politically influenced ruling that millions in earnings from a worldwide tour by a famous performer should be treated as profits from an investment of her body and voice, and taxed at the lower rate of capital gains. Depending on whom you know, warbling around the world in grand style can be construed as risk-taking. On the other hand singing Saturday night at a local nightclub to earn a few extra bucks on weekends is taxed at the higher rates of ordinary income. Some giant corporations also pay less tax than others for reasons not intended to be understood by ordinary taxpayers. Its all part of the game of politically preferred treatment for friends and supporters. How can we fix the goulash we refer to as the U.S. Tax Code? The only intelligent answer is to deposit the code, rulings, and forms 1040 AtoZ in a recycle trash bin and start anew. An attempt by Congress to reform the current tax code would most likely result in adding goo to the same old stew. There are a number of alternative ideas for raising revenue to run the government. Many European countries have a valueadded tax (VAT) on production. Its easy to collect and difficult to defraud, but it doesnt do away with all other taxes, and it tends to encourage bigger government. Then theres the Fair Tax, a national retail sales tax with refunds to help the less fortunate. Its almost as complicated as our present tax code. A fair tax bill has been gathering dust in Congress for more than a decade. Our favorite is a Flat Tax on all income, regardless of source salaries, benefits, bonuses, dividends, interest, inheritances, capital gains, gambling, lotteries and profits. Our vision is a tithe (ten percent) from income above the poverty level and from business profits. All citizens and business beneficiaries should have a financial stake in the success and well being of the nation. Editor, columnist, and television host Fareed Zakaria suggested playfully that the logical remedy for our corrupt and complex tax system would be a twopage tax code, with no room for loopholes, preferences, credits, exemptions, and exceptions. Theres a bumper sticker which describes a two-page Flat Tax: If 10% is enough for God, its enough for the IRS. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 20, 2012 Over the past few years, its been obvious that some people have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Those of us who have websites and e-mails have been part of the effort to educate the public on the use of electronics. Now the federal government is getting in the act. As you can read elsewhere, beginning March 1, 2013, the feds will get rid of all paper checks for benefits, including Social Security. No longer will you be rushing to your mailbox on a certain day of the month to get that check and take it to the bank. You will have a choice. You can either get direct deposit into a checking or savings account or, absent both of those, you can get a prepaid debit card. This will apply to more government benefit checks besides Social Security. A complete list is in the story that starts today on Page 1. Frankly, its hard to understand why anyone would not want direct deposit. The report of stolen or lost checks, especially Social Security, is astronomical. There is also the convenience of knowing that if you are temporarily unavailable, if youre sick or out of town, your money keeps flowing into your account, even if youre not there to cash a check. One thing that hasnt been mentioned much, as near as we can find out, is the effect on the U.S. Postal Service. Is this going to be costly to the postal people, who are going to lose a lot of business? Some might say they want to continue to use cash, and thats why they cash their Social Security check every month. Thats fine. Now you can cash one of your own checks every month and still get the cash. A debit card, of course, is just as good. You take your prepaid debit card to the store, pay for your items, and theres always a little question on the keypad: Do you want cash back? Thats how many of us get cash now without even bothering to go to the bank. If youre one of the 90 percent of Social Security recipients who already get direct deposit, nothing will change. But if youre in that other 10 percent, get ready for some changes. And please, keep the kicking and screaming down. It doesnt become you at all.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

If you've ever watched the television show "Law and Order," you've seen scenes from the Appellate Court and the state Supreme Court where both sides make their oral arguments. They stand in front of a podium which has three small lights, green, yellow and red, well in sight of the speaker. When he starts, the green light is on. When time is almost up, the yellow light comes on, and when time is up, the red light glows, and the lawyer immediately says thank you and sits down. Unfortunately, such discipline doesn't seem to apply to County Commission meetings. The county now has these little lights on the podium where members of the audience speak to the group. Those who took the trouble to get on the agenda ahead of time get five minutes. The others who wish to speak unannounced at the meeting get two minutes each. At last Tuesday's County Commission meeting, two speakers who did not get on the agenda stood up to speak, both about the taxing situation with Munroe Regional Medical Center. The first man spoke for 9 minutes and 8 seconds, and the second for 6 minutes and 30 seconds. One man got up after that and thanked the commissioners for not shutting off the speakers at the red light. We disagree. While people should have their say, they should have enough discipline to follow the rules. The commissioners should also have the fortitude to follow their rules and force spectators to abide by them. What's going to happen at the May 1 meeting if several people get up to speak and each one talks for six or nine minutes. The meeting could take forever, and now a precedent has been set. The commissioners won't be able to do anything about it, since they didn't enforce the rules this time around. Both speakers about the hospital made very good points, items that the commission should follow up on. And the commissioners should be praised for the fact that, unlike the School Board, they let the public speaker portion of the meeting be televised, even if the TV channel can't get the schedule straight (the digital schedule on Cox said it was a School Board meeting on TV that night). So a lot of things were done right. But let's streamline the process by following the rules, or let's change the rules so everyone knows where they stand.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Daphne works at Stein mart along with offering an airport shuttle service. The two stay busy with not only their work but with the caring for their animals and their hobbies. Rica and Destin are the Delaneys two dogs. Rica was rescued from a trash dump and Destin was a refugee from Hurricane Katrina. They found a loving home and loving hands to care for them and they know it. The two puppies are affectionate, gentle and will become lap dogs once theyve been introduced to strangers. Not content with just taking care of their dogs, Tim and Daphne have also been known to take care of stray cattle. Because they live adjacent to the pasture, occasionally, a cow will get loose and graze on their front or back lawn. Its not unusual for Tim to come home and have to guide the animals back through the gate so they can rejoin the rest of the herd. One day, Daphne and Tim found a baby calf in their yard. Apparently the mother cow had died during childbirth because the little one was alone and scared. For a few days, until they could get a hold of the owner, they took in the orphaned infant. With advice from a veterinarian they purchased special formula and bottle fed the baby cow. Providing warmth, food, and loving care, they were able to save the wobbly legged youngster until the owner came and retrieved it. Their love is not only limited to animals however. Two years ago they went on a Christian Mission and returned to Daphnes native village of Puerto Cabezas. In cooperation with their Church, they brought $15,000 worth of food, clothing and other much needed supplies to the poor in that town. Especially in need of their help were the children of the village. That moment touched Daphne and Tim so much that they plan a return visit. Parents of Tim, John and Jeanne, live in Oak Run. His sister, Kathy lives in Syracuse and another sister, Julie, resides in Coral Springs. Daphnes folks, Roe and Carson, live in North Carolina and she has an aunt in West Palm Beach. Family get-togethers are frequent and fun. Biking and skiing are two of Tims favorite hobbies. While Florida offers few opportunities for skiing, he takes part in at least two races per year. The course he rides is 48 miles long so its quite a work out. He used to do 100 mile races but has toned that back in recent years. Everyone who knows Tim and Daphne say the same thing about them; They are the nicest people youll ever meet. Always a smile on his face, Tim feels richly blessed to have all that he and Daphne share here in Cherrywood; warm weather, light traffic, a good business and most of all, great people.From Your ReporterIf you have comments or suggestions for articles about Cherrywood or if theres something that you would like to see in this column please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

The song was the Gordy labels first million-seller, and it still holds the record as Motowns fastest rising hit of all time. The Contours with Joe Billingslea continue to record and tour extensively. Their show is jam-packed with dazzling, high-energy choreography, impeccable harmonies and those timeless Motown grooves that everyone knows and loves. This show is as high energy as it was in the 1960s, though the flips and splits of yesteryear have been replaced by a brilliant choreography more suited to gentlemen in their second half-century of life!

Her love of grief an obsession over the death of her mother, the Duchess of Kent, distracted her from her husbands serious illness that led to his premature death at 42 in 1861. Her hysterical reactions to any bad news about Alberts condition prompted attending physicians to lie to her or soften any troubling turn of events. Thus, his unexpected death left her inconsolable and vowing to wear widows weeds until her death, a vow she kept for 40 years. Ironically, it was Alberts demise that finally made Victoria a queen to be reckoned with. In a letter to the King of Prussia she declared her life was over: For me, life came to an end on 14 December. My life was dependent on his. I had no thoughts except of him; my whole striving was to please him, to be less unworthy of him! Originally, Albert had been considered by the English as a German interloper. At court he was forbidden to see dispatches or even be present when the queen met her ministers. But in time his influence increased over affairs of state which bored Victoria. Added to that was her incapacity during nine pregnancies. Although he worked hard the simple truth was that he assumed power simply by sharing a bed with the queen. The nation went into an immediate state of protracted mourning. Victorias entire court dressed in black including fouryear-old Princess Beatrice. All festivities of any kind were canceled for indefinite periods, greatly irritating Charles Dickens, whose upcoming speaking event had been sold out. At first the nation sympathized with the queen but as she secluded herself for most of the year in Balmoral Castle in Scotland, neglecting her duties and shunning her people, resentment grew. Only a blunt, down-to-earth John Brown, groomsman, selfappointed bodyguard and eventually constant companion was able to coax her out of a decade of isolation. That and the near death of her eldest son Bertie seem to shake her alive. The woman who had lavished her devotion on Albert the man and tried to find justice for him in death was ready to return as queen to one-fifth of the worlds population. A magnificent read that makes readers long for more. Pat Wellington is a retired English professor, and freelance writer.

OBITUARY On Saturday, May 12, letter carriers throughout Marion County will participate in the 20th annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) National Food Drive to Stamp Out Hunger. This annual effort has become the largest one-day food drive in the nations history, resulting in more than a half billion pounds of food to local food banks, pantries and shelters in all 50 states. Last year in Marion County, 278,500 pounds of nonperishable food was collected and donated to Interfaith Emergency Services for distribution to the Salvation Army, Brothers Keeper, St. Theresas Catholic Church and the Help Agency of the Forest food banks. The Ocala Post Office was ranked first in the nation in their union member category for the fifth year for the communitys outstanding effort in supporting this program. In Marion County alone, more than one million pounds of food has been collected. Postal customers are asked to hang a food donation on their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers the mail on Saturday, May 12, and the carrier will do the rest. Collection barrels will also be set up at all Post Office branches to accommodate those with Post Office Boxes. For individuals interested in volunteering for the collection and unloading/loading, please call Thomas Curtis at 352-572-5634. Service hours for high school students are available. United Way of Marion County, USPS, Campbells, Valpak, Feeding America, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association and AFLCIO have partnered with the NALC to help stamp out hunger.

Horns blew and people cheered and clapped when Raymond Kukla kissed the bride he had not seen in months on a busy street in Bay City, Mich. Married April 22, 1946 in Germany, after Kukla received permission from the U.S. Army to marry Jean, a Polish-born woman who had had been taken as a prisoner of war by the Germans, it was months before both were reunited on American soil. A resident of Warsaw, Poland, Jean had joined the Polish Underground when she was 14-years-old in hopes of protecting her war-torn city from future destruction. Orders for the soldiers serving in the underground were coming from Polands pre-war government, in exile in London. The small ill-equipped Polish Army hid in basements and fought with the bare hands until they surrendered to the Germans after realizing that the Russians were not going to come to their aid, Jean Kukla recalled. After liberation by American soldiers, a Polish camp was set up across from the American Camp. The camps were separated by volleyball courts and a swimming pool. It was on those courts that the American soldier and the Polish woman met. We were better players and we beat the men, Jean said, noting that volleyball had been a popular sport in the pre-war days of Poland. During their courtship there were language barriers to overcome. While Jean spoke her native Polish and had learned French and German in school, she didnt speak English. Kukla spoke English and a smattering of Polish. Their friendship flourished and Kukla extended his stint in the service for three-months. But when Kukla proposed marriage Jean was not sure if she should say yes. She sought the advice of an older woman, who said marry the nice young man. There was red tape for the couple to overcome before they could say, I do. Kukla first spoke to his commanding officer who agreed to write a letter on their behalf to Army headquarters. The Army eventually agreed but said the marriage could not take place for three months after receipt of the letter. The couple was first wed in a civil ceremony and then in a Catholic Church they were both raised in the Catholic faith after the Lenten season had passed. It was a festive occasion with a roasted pig, Cognac from France and the couple exchanging vows in their Army issued uniform. Weeks later Jean joined about 30 other young women that had married American GIs and started her trip to the United States. The trip included staying in Paris for several months before going into England and then crossing the Atlantic. Kukla remained behind in Germany still an enlisted man. She passed through immigration in New York City and then went on to Michigan. A woman from the American Red Cross traveled with the women helping them find their way. Finally at Bay City, Michigan, Jean was met by Kuklas parents. I knew it was them when we pulled into the station. Ray looked just like his dad, Jean said. Kuklas mother was relatively fluent in Polish, so the two women were able to communicate well. A bridal shower was planned for Jean so she could meet others of Kuklas family. With many duplicated gifts received, the two women decided to head into town to exchange some presents. It was the same afternoon that Kukla returned to his familys home to surprise his bride and parents only to find no one home. A neighbor told him that they had gone to town. The impatient Kukla boarded a bus to town. We were waiting at the bus stop when he got off at the stop across the street, Jean said who still gets emotional remembering the reunion. The young couple eventually moved to Detroit, had three children, Kukla worked for General Motors, and Jean became a nurse. For their 25th wedding anniversary, the couple toured Europe visiting the many places that had been significant in their lives. Earlier this month their neighbors and friends from Pine Run helped celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary.

As of last May, anyone newly applying for Social Security, Veterans Affairs or other federal benefits will need to choose an electronic payment method paper checks will no longer be an option. People currently receiving their federal benefits by paper check must switch to direct deposit by March 1, 2013. Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios highlighted the savings to taxpayers by ceremonially writing a check to American taxpayers in the amount of $1 billion. More than 18 million baby boomers are expected to reach retirement age during the next five years, with 10,000 people a day becoming eligible for Social Security benefits, said Rios. It costs 92 cents more to issue a payment by paper check than by direct deposit. We are retiring the Social Security paper check option in favor of electronic payments because it is the right thing to do for benefit recipients and American taxpayers alike. The Treasury Department published a final rule in December 2010, to gradually eliminate paper checks for federal benefit payments. In addition to the taxpayer savings, electronic payments are safer and more convenient than paper checks. Last year alone, more than 540,000 Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) paper checks were reported lost or stolen and had to be replaced. On Jan. 31, 1940, Ida Mae Fuller received the first monthly Social Security benefit check and, to date, about 165 million people have received Social Security benefits. The movement toward electronic payments has been steadily increasing. According to the 2010 Federal Reserve Payments Study, electronic payments now make up over three-quarters of all noncash payments nationwide. There were 5.7 billion fewer checks written in 2009 than in 2006, a decline of 6.1 percent per year while electronic payments grew 9.3 percent during that same period. Among federal benefit recipients, approximately eight in 10 receive their Social Security or other federal benefit payment electronically. The Treasury Departments public education campaign provides information to Americans about the change to how federal benefit payments are being delivered and makes it easy for current check recipients to switch online at www.GoDirect.org or by calling a toll-free helpline. Switching from checks to direct deposit is fast, easy and free at www.GoDirect.org, by calling the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Centers toll-free helpline at 1-800-333-1795, or by speaking with a bank or credit union representative. 28~ Friday, April 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Feds say the check wont be in the mail Why did the golf cart cross the road? To get to OTOW amenities 80th and 80th to get traffic light BY JIM CLARK EditorPeople in Indigo East will finally be able to join their fellow On Top of the World residents in traveling to their activities and amenities by golf cart. However, drivers on Southwest 80th Avenue will have to contend with another traffic light on the high-speed, two-lane road. In conjunction with a new traffic light to be installed shortly, the residents have obtained a Marion County Commission revision of an ordinance that will allow them to cross Southwest 80th Avenue at the Southwest 80th Street intersection. The county ordinance currently restricts the use of golf carts on public streets outside developments. Indigo East is east of 80th Avenue, while the majority of OTOW activities take place west of the avenue. Included in the activities on the west side of the road are the festivals and events that take place at Circle Square Commons and the Cultural Center. The logical crossing point is 80th Street, but the speed limit on the avenue is 55 mph, and there are curves just to the north and just to the south of that intersection, meaning that crossing without a traffic light would be hazardous. The contingent of Indigo East residents who attended the meeting Tuesday morning at the McPherson Complex broke out in applause when the motion was approved. Officials from OTOW, which is installing the light, said the work on the intersection should begin shortly. Materials have been ordered. The only doubt raised was by Commissioner Carl Zalak, who said he has received similar requests from people in northern communities, including Ocala Palms, and that this decision could open the door to many other exceptions. It was stated that the requests would have to be taken up on an individual basis. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThe view looking west from the intersection of Southwest 80th Avenue and 80th Street.
