From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200. Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Dentistry From the Heart Dr. Stephen Dunn, a dentist at 9401 S.W. State Road 200, provided free fillings and extractions for the needy last Friday under the Dentistry From the Heart program. At the right, Dr. Dunn, assisted by Lisa Loman, dental assistant, fills a tooth for a patient. Below the dentist, at left, is shown with part of the crew before the crowds arrived.PHOTOS BY RON RATNER Bring your pills to Sheriffs Office this Saturday Local office will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Contractors are in the process of installing traffic monitoring cameras along State Road 200, State Road 40, U.S. Highway 27, Northwest 27th Avenue and Southwest 60th Avenue. The cameras will provide realtime information to Ocala and Marion County Transportation Management Centers. Personnel will use the information to adjust timing during unusual traffic conditions, such as when an accident causes motorists to be diverted off I-75 into Ocala. Along with the traffic monitoring cameras (which do not record), contractors are installing Dynamic Message Signs that provide directions to motorists exiting I-75 and help them maneuver through town to the appropriate interstate re-entry point. Altogether there are 17 cameras and 15 message signs that are being installed. The message signs will remain dark until needed to relay important traffic information. Installation is expected to be completed by the end of May. Funding for the $685,000 project was provided by the Florida Department of Transportation. The Citizenasked the city if these cameras would be accessible to the public on the Internet, and was told that the city did not yet have the capability to do that, but it could be put into a future budget.

Additional photo, Page 2. Ocala installing cameras for traffic, not to record Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last falls Ribathon. On Saturday, May 5 starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of baby back ribs costs $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. Last October, all of the ribs were sold and gone by 1 p.m., so it is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. Prepaid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital. You can also buy tickets at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, M&S Bank, Alarion Bank, TD Bank, the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. and Coldwell Banker/Ellison Realty. For more information, visit the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest Facebook page or call Pete at 352873-6291.

Voluntary burn ban remains in effectThe Multi-Agency Wildland Task Force met Monday to discuss local wildfire conditions and decided to continue the voluntary burn ban issued on April 12. While Marion County received some rainfall over the weekend, the area would need additional rain over an extended period of time to significantly impact current dry conditions. The drought index is currently 476 in Marion County, with some areas registering as high as 604. On the scale which has a maximum range of 800, 500 is usually the wildfire danger zone. The task force encourages residents to continue to postpone burning until conditions improve, and instead take yard debris to the Baseline Landfill or one of the countys other 17 recycling centers. Addresses and hours of operation for these recycling centers are available at http://www.marioncountyfl.org/SolidWaste/Divisions_Recycling_Collectio n.aspx. The group will continue to monitor local fire and weather conditions, and is scheduled to meet again on May 7. 000B6CB

The road now connects State Road 40 (West Silver Springs Boulevard) to Southwest 38th Street at the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. The mostly two-lane road snakes through several curves as it opens up land for industrial development to the west of the airport. The ceremony was held in the presence of many city officials and the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors. Included in the ceremony was the placing of current day materials in a time capsule. Plans call for the capsule to be buried and then to be opened in the year 2035. City Manager Matt Brower welcomed guests to the opening of the 2.4-mile road, a $3.4 million project. The city has provided utilities along the route to encourage new industry. Brower said the goal was to bring jobs, and help grow Ocala International Airport. Suzy Heinbockel, Ocala City Council president, praised the decision to build the road and the park. Were paying attention. Were taking advice and trying to do the right thing, she said. Pete Tesch from the Ocala-Marion County Economic Development Corp., said that with the new park we can attract the right type of business. Various dignitaries were called to the podium to place items in the capsule. Some of those included were a key to the city, the mayors gold medal, a current newspaper, a photo of the council, a Can Do hat, images, drawings and design of the park, a groundbreaking picture, a new county publication that shows pictorial images, a Chamber of Commerce ribbon, pictures of planning sessions, a history of the airport with an SD card (the hope was expressed that it could still be read in 2035), a journal in which guests had written their predictions, and a business card from the company that did the sign. After the conclusion of the ceremony, several participants headed south on the new road to get a look at the features.

Mel moved to Cherrywood from Mississippi 12 years ago with his wife Margie. They have been married for 41 years and have a daughter, Amanda, who lives in Columbus, Maryland. Amanda is a chemist and Margie does editorial work for a popular Florida author. Mel considers my wonderful wife and beautiful daughter among the greatest accomplishments of his life. His Sister, Priscilla still lives in Mississippi, as does his Mom, Martha. After serving at the Pentagon in U.S. Army Intelligence, Mel was hired by the Department of Defense where he worked for 30 years. He has a Bachelors of Arts Degree from the University of Mississippi and a Masters Degree from Western Maryland College. His skill and education with languages made him a natural for work with D.O.D. but because of his security classification we must let it go at that. Mel first became interested in art while working in wood shop back in his Junior High School days. He would carve animals, wooden chains, and other pieces from the scraps of wood he found. After he retired, he said to him self, If youre ever going to become good at this type of thing, you better get started, and get started he did. Mostly self taught, Mel studied under Dale Enochs in the Montoya Famous Sculpture Series in West Palm Beach. While he works in both wood and stone, he prefers working with stone. He has never gotten into painting as an art form because he confesses, I like the three dimensional medium of stone and wood. His latest piece, entitled La Venus Americane (pictured with Mel) is a beautiful carving made from a piece of Live Oak. Oddly enough, when he received the piece of wood, a gift from a co-worker, it had a peculiar natural bend in it that reminded Mel of the Venus De Milo statue. This inspired his work. Over 150 hours of labor transformed the tree limb into a beautiful sculpture. While the attention to detail is excellent, the expression on the face of the art work is the most captivating aspect of this piece. The expression of love on her face in all its aspects, from peace and serenity to sadness and melancholy is captivating. Putting emotion into a work of art is one of the hallmarks of a good artist and Mel has accomplished this with La Venus Americane. Aside from working in his garage shop, Mel works several part time jobs. Four days a week he is in a shop called Artful Gifts. The store is a satellite for Marion Cultural Alliance with its headquarters in Brick City Center for the Arts in downtown Ocala. He also serves as vice president of the Ocala Art Group and Gallery East organizations. Oddly enough, Mel also is employed by Joseph A. Banks clothiers at Heathbrook two days a week. To keep in shape, Mel runs a couple of Marathon races each year and runs daily throughout Cherrywood Estates. He has been running for 20 years and maintains a rigorous training regime. Another one of Mels works is on display in the Atrium of the New Judicial Center in downtown Ocala. Titled The American Girls, this interesting work is two women, side by side with one eye of each covered by their hair. The first girls eye is open, signifying the vigilance of the justice system and the other girls eye is closed, representing the blindness of justice. There are more subtleties to the statue but youll have to check it out for yourself. More shows are available for you to enjoy Mels artwork and he would be glad to furnish you with the dates and times. Email Mel at www.galleryeast.org or call him at 352-245-2781. Mel loves the Cherrywood community and Ocala. He enjoys the warm weather; the slow pace; the age group of people around him and, he said its like taking a step back in time. We are proud to have one of only two or three sculpture artists in the Ocala area living here. Mel and his wife Margie are truly assets to our community.From Your ReporterIf you have a person or item you would like highlighted in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@Yahoo.com.

The ladies always have a good time at these functions and as this is the last one for the season, they will have to make plans for next years schedule. If you are a lady and you live in Cherrywood, call or see Geri to make your reservations for this fun group outing. Even if youve never been to one before, now would be a great time to get involved with these lovely ladies.Pool: A ball at CherrywoodOcala Palms Pool Team came to Cherrywood for a league game against our men on Tuesday the 17th. The competition was fierce in a good natured way with plenty of jokes, kibitzing and compliments. Your humble correspondent was invited to cover the games and for just plain good fun and relaxation, there are few things that can rival these outings. There is a mutual respect among the players that goes beyond just good sportsmanship. Everyone mixes fantastic shots with an occasional mulligan. Compliments abound for the good shot and laughter and banter accompany a miscue or missed easy shot. Because everyone is playing for fun and a challenge, theres no hesitancy in giving or getting good advice on how to line up a shot or leave your opponent at a disadvantage. This shared knowledge between players allows the men to not only have fun with their own team but develop camaraderie with the visiting team. Friendships are made and respect shared when the Mens Pool League plays. If you have any interest in the game of Nine Ball or Eight Ball, try coming to the pool room at the clubhouse almost any morning at 9 and give it a try. Youll be glad you did. (By the way, Cherrywood won on this day, but there are a lot of games yet to be played and a lot of fun yet to be had.)Trivia GameWednesday evening at 7 Rich Hurley fired up the big screen with questions from the 50s and 60s along with Sports. As always, there were several teams anxious to compete for the prize money, well maybe not for the money. Teams compete mainly for bragging rights and to test their knowledge in the good natured atmosphere of friends and neighbors. Rich out did him self with questions that only the writers of Sports Illustrated would know or History Professors from Harvard might have a clue about. Seriously, everyone guessed their way through and had a blast doing it. Some of the off the wall answers were funnier than the real ones and there was a lot of laughter through out the contest. All the money thats taken in, and thats a whole dollar per player, goes to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only is everyone having a good time, but they are helping a good cause. For a good time, come on out for Trivia night next month and test your skills with the rest of us. Feel free to bring snacks and beverages of your choice as well. Movie NightTuesday, May 1, is Movie Night at Cherrywood. Come get your free pop corn and lemonade or bring you own treats and drinks and watch War Horse. This action drama is a first run hit thats been a big draw at the box office. Show time is 7 p.m. to watch this great film on the big screen at the Clubhouse.Yard Sale SuccessSaturdays Cherrywood yard sale was one of the best. There was an abundance of households that took part and a wide variety of items for sale. On behalf of the residents I would like to thank all those visitors who came from all over Marion County to shop and be part of this semi-annual event. I would also like to thank Jim Clark of the Citizen for allowing us to publicize the yard sale. There were many bargains and items on sale and one of the best deals of day was found by Genevieve Downs. She found the Queen Ann dining room table; six chairs and matching hutch for a third of the price it would have cost her at any store. After making the purchase, she casually mentioned how it might be a little difficult to get it home right away. As luck would have it, another resident of Cherrywood was standing next to her and volunteered to transport it right then and there in his truck. This is yet another example of neighbor helping neighbor. Gen, who donates platelets at the blood bank, found out that the owner of the truck is on dialysis and is a recipient of platelets as part of the treatment. Its a small world and our giving and sharing touches many people we dont even know. Congratulations to Gen on her find and to all who got bargains at the yard sale.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com Most Congress people arrive in Washington with ordinary backgrounds and an agenda of noble intentions to do good for constituents and the nation. It doesnt take long however for Congress people to become exceptional. To some extent its not their fault. It may be an effect of ingesting Washington air and water. On a Saturday some years ago we delivered our daughter to Washington for her congreswww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 27, 2012 Trying to follow this controversy concerning Munroe Regional Medical Center is really challenging for those of us who are just simple folk. All these tales of leases and taxes and rankings, etc., can make us dizzy. I do know one thing. If the Munroe powers-that-be succeed in getting a new tax on the ballot in November, it hasnt got a snowballs chance in you-know-where of succeeding, especially in this economy, even if there are some who are willing to pay a little more for the success of the hospital. All of this talk to get me thinking occurred at the County Commission last week, when a couple of speakers spoke about a recent meeting they had attended concerning the hospital. One said the vote to consider the tax was taken twice and that the reconsideration and the push for the tax may have been illegal. He spoke at length about how he considered the meeting was improperly conducted, not following Roberts Rules of Order. This got me thinking back to four years ago. I had been having some breathing problems for a few days, and this particular morning woke up really struggling. Every time I exhaled, I gurgled (didnt mean to gross you out). I asked my wife to take me to get looked at, and she knew something was wrong because I let her drive. When it comes to being in the car, Im a control freak. We went to one of the neighborhood walk-in clinics near my home, where they took one look at me and called an ambulance. I was transported to Munroe (no lights or sirens, thank goodness) where I was examined and admitted. This is not to say the other hospital isnt a good one. My father was a pharmacist who worked at both hospitals, but he retired from Munroe and my mom was a longtime volunteer there, so we have just naturally been Munroe oriented. A week after I was wheeled into Munroes Emergency Department, I was walking back into my home, feeling like a new man, and within a couple of days I was back at work (at the time it was in Williston). To this day, I feel that Munroe, and the cardiologist, Dr. Ali Nasser, who was assigned to me, saved my life. I still go to that cardiologist today. My heart was at about 5 to 10 percent functioning capacity when I went in; today its normal for someone my age. All of this leads me to my reasoning in the hospital dispute. I dont care who leases it, or who owns it, I just want to make sure its there if I should need it again, or if any of my family or friends needs it. I like to think that there are a lot of people who feel that way. When theyre speeding down the road in a rescue vehicle, theyre not stopping to ask if the hospital is being supported by a tax, if its privately leased, or if putting the tax on the ballot was legal. They just want to make sure there will be doctors and nurses waiting for them when they pull in. In all this discussion, Im hearing very little discussion about patients. It all seems to be about legalities and money. In fact, both sides need to have a little more patience, and think about the patients. This thing should be resolved without accusations and finger pointing. Just make sure that the one pointing is a nurse, saying, Take him into Room 2. Getting treatment should be the most important thing for all to consider.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

At last, one of those new roads that keep popping up all over Marion County opened up Tuesday morning as a road to somewhere and an important one it is. The city of Ocala held a ceremony to unveil the sign to its new Ocala Business Park at Ocala International Airport, and with it opened Southwest 67th Avenue Road. The road now goes from State Road 40 south to Southwest 38th Street. The southern portion of the road has been in existence for some time; it is used as the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. But now reachable are a myriad of industrial sites along this road, which already has utilities available. It is a major effort to attract good, solid businesses to Ocala and Marion County, and with that, some decent jobs to help control the unemployment rate in this area. The area needs locations such as this if it is going to attract the right type of economic development. And with location, location, location being the most important thing for a lot of people, putting it within sight of the Ocala International Airport, and within a few miles of Interstate 75 with good four-lane access on State Road 40 makes the site ideal for growth in the financial area. Ocala City Council President Suzy Heinbockel put it perfectly when she said, Were paying attention; were taking advice; were trying to do the right thing. In this case, the city is doing the right thing. All of us, even those who do not live within the city limits, should hope that the project bears fruit. We all stand to benefit from more business, and more jobs, in the area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Business park road opens in Ocala Hospital: Patience and patients Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Congress is a club for exceptional people Cross Florida Barge CanalThose of you who didnt live here in Florida back in the 1960s as I did, wont remember the controversy regarding the building of the Cross Florida Barge Canal. It was a great idea at the time and still is to this day. The reasons for not building were strictly political, with little foundation. It was a pity it didnt happen. Today, its being discussed again, and its even better now. Gas prices then were about 29 cents a gallon and fuel oil on a par with gas prices. Just think, with the Canal, it could knock off close to a week for shipping to get from major ports like Baltimore, New York, Savannah, and Charleston, S.C., to get to Gulf States such as Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and yes, the western part of Florida. Not only saving time but think of the cost of shipping products to the Gulf States. Shipping by sea has been proven to be the cheapest way to ship goods. Of course cost is a factor but, that is rather insignificant. I dont believe Florida should carry all the burden of building the canal. Other states and companies that would benefit from the Canal, could well help support the project. By the way this would not only be an advantage involving shipping from American ports, but from foreign ports as well. They said the Panama Canal couldnt be built, but when the United States took over the project, we showed them what American ingenuity could do. Oh yes, did I forget to mention, jobs. Can you imagine the impact the Canal would have on the economy of not only Florida but the country? Those of you who dont remember the St. Lawrence Seaway, and the C & O Canal, should know what good they did, and have done for this country and our economy as well as for other countries as well. Apparently property acquisition is not a problem, so why dont we pressure the Legislature and the governor to get it done now, not 10 years from now. For the governor, who hasnt done much in the way of progress for Florida, it could be a feather in his cap. Speaking just for Florida, do you have any idea of the impact it would have on our economy? Wow! So, lets get those dredges going and give a big Shout Out for Florida.

A kindly person at the apartment complex suggested we call the utilities and tell them in a friendly way that our daughter could not be at her apartment on weekdays, because she would be working at the offices of Congressman Dogoody (a pseudonym). With instant courtesy the utilities performed the installation on Sunday. Doing good in Congress can be financially rewarding. Nearly half of the sitting members are millionaires, an unlikely result considering their modest $174,000 annual salaries for their full-time jobs. In all fairness, some members are millionaires because of inheritances, marriages, or successful careers in the real world. Interestingly, over the past five years, while most Americans were watching their net worth decline, the exceptional members of Congress experienced a continuing rise in their net wealth very substantial increases for some. Notwithstanding occasional examples of ethics violations, most Congress people stay within their written code of conduct. The 15 page, short form Staning bout. Now that Mitt Romney is the Republican candidate, he is acting like the election is over. Just this week he said, President Obama should start packing in the White House. He obviously has no respect for the presidential office and is totally lacking in any class. Then we had Ann Romney claim we should elect Mitt because it is his turn. That privilege only applies to the Royal Family, she may be confused, or maybe she really thinks the Romneys are royalty. John Toner OcalaNot so secretI read in the paper that the Secret Service said no sensitive equipment was in the hotel rooms of these agents. If the presidents schedule showing times and places where he is going to appear and be available is not sensitive information, then these agents and military involved do not understand the importance of their positions. To allow someone to retire before the investigation is completed is totally improper and sends the message that you can get away with anything if you can retire or resign to avoid consequences. How do we know that this recent retiree isnt one of the ring leaders and involved in these types of sex parties with the possibility of drugs being involved? We may never know who arranged the disgraceful actions of those involved in this scandal.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dards of Official Conduct of the House of Representatives can be carried in a brief case for quick reference if needed. Among other things the ethics standards cover gifts, events, travel, and conflicts of interest. They also say no one is placed at risk by seeking confidential Ethics Committee advice when in doubt a sort of a dig-safe warning to consider before digging an ethical hole. The Ethics Manual also says members should never use information received confidentially in performance of governmental duties as a means of making private profits. Why then was it necessary for CBSs 60 Minutes to uncover stock trading based on insider information which had been going on for years in the offices of Congress? Minority leader Nancy Pelosis office called the 60 Minutes expose a smear, and Speaker John Boehners office called it idiotic. How could Congressional leaders not have known about insider dealing when bills to stop trading on Congressional knowledge (Stock Act) had been introduced in three successive sessions 2006, 2007, and 2009 all of which died in committee. After two more years of foot dragging by both parties, 93 members of Congress signed on as cosponsors of what is now known as the STOCK ACT, which President Obama signed into law on April 4, 2012. Little wonder Congress has a ten percent approval rating. Some members of Congress should be term limited at the polls come November, and regularly thereafter. Too long in public service is dangerous to their ethical health. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The professionalisms of these actions show that this was a well-planned and highly aggressive action with those at the top involved. These people involved should all be put in a leave without pay status and possibly imprisoned during this investigation to show the importance of how much this means to the Secret Service and our country. I am not sure that we should even allow the Secret Service to investigate itself to come to a proper resolution. How much confidence can you have in an organization where the leaders do not know or wont admit to knowing what the secret service does on their own time. When they are on assignment in foreign countries and especially places like Colombia which is known to be the drug capital of the Americas, these agents should be on 24-hour duty with only the best of the best protecting our president. The Secret Service has let our country down. Jerry Segovis OcalaAt least be honestLast week I shared that the hypocrites involved in trying to make the Martin shooting a racial issue were really attacking our Stand Your Ground Law and this has proven to be true. Facts are coming out that dispute any racial motivation in the shooting and we are getting new evidence that will influence the case. This goes to prove that we should never jump to conclusions without getting all the facts, and those who did have made themselves look extremely foolish and are exposed as the racists they are. We now have a task force that will be reviewing our Stand Your Ground Law and some have openly made it known that they want it repealed. It comes as no surprise that they are Democrats, such as Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, who has been an ardent critic of the law since its inception. Most of our citizens approve of the law and the positive effect it has in giving us the right to confront the criminals and protect our lives and property, and it has worked. Sen. Smith apparently told the panel that the Martin shooting is an example of the ambiguity of the law and mentioned the unintended consequences it has created. My question to Mr. Smith is just what other consequences have been created? This question is directed to any liberal Democrat or other critics, but please give examples for our consideration. There is no LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 question we can point to instances that property and innocent lives have been saved and such cases have been documented. I believe decent Americans are interested in protecting the victim, not the criminal. In addition to the above, I have to confess I cannot understand the thinking of liberals at all. We have a large number of liberals who want to do away with capitalism, openly support Communism, and believe in a welfare state. We have so many social programs in effect today that it will prove difficult for any politician to eliminate many of them. Too many now have their hand out and expect everyone else to support them. I wonder who these takers will vote for? I think we all know the answer to that question! Wayne Rackley OcalaNot enough timeToday, Saturday, April 21, I received two bills: one from SECO with a due date of May 4 which allows 13 days for me to respond, the post office to deliver, and them to receive my payment. The second from Discover Card has a due date of May 12 which allows 21 days for the same sequence of events. More than a 50 percent increase and much more than that for the part of the sequence I can control. I have asked SECO twice why they do not give customers as much time to pay as other creditors and have not received a satisfactory response. Today, I am home and this is no problem. However, I frequently travel and it is a problem. I invite everyone who shares this feeling to let SECO know about it.

It is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found in the mail coupons for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I finished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terrific and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goofing off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just fine, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I first walked in. I focused on the menu. Looking up from the menu what I saw shocked me to the core. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the floor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume fit quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not fit. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order finally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com According to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, this week is Money Smart Week. This puzzled me for some time. After taxes, none of us have any money to be smart with. Then it dawned; we are still smarting from having to pay all that tax money. Today, Pun Alley has some smart money tales and some to smart about.Sweet notesBy night three violinists played in the symphony orchestra. During the day, to make a little money on the side, they used their musical talents by roving the city streets and having impromptu concerts wherever they thought they could make some money from anyone passing by. They called themselves A Random Act Of Violins. Silent teller Young man, I want to know how much money my husband drew out of his account yesterday, demanded the woman of the teller in a bank. I cannot give you that information, said the teller firmly. But arent you the paying teller? asked the woman. Yes, that is correct, replied the young man. But Im not the telling teller. Take me to the bankA stranger in New York asked a young man the dihis nephew five dollars. Now be careful with that money, Tommy, he said. Remember the saying, A fool and his money are soon parted. Yes, Uncle, replied Tommy, but I want to thank you for parting with it, just the same.Democrat or Republican?There are hundreds of ways to make money, said a politician, but only one honest way. Whats that? asked his opponent in debate. Aha, retorted the first, I thought you wouldnt know.Creditable Jack spotted a friend one day and reminded him that he still owed a $250 loan and insisted the man pay up. The friend pulled out a checkbook and wrote a check for the full amount. Skeptical about the mans good faith, Jack went directly to the bank and presented the check for payment. The teller told him he couldnt cash the check because the friends account was $25 short. Jack went to the customers desk for a few minutes, came back to the teller, deposited $35 to the account of the friend, and then again presented the $250 check and walked out with a net gain of $215.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. rection to the Chase National Bank. Ill take you there for five dollars, replied the young fellow. When the stranger found that his guide had walked all of two blocks for $5 he paid it but said, That was an easy five for you. Yes, said the young man, but you must remember that bank directors get big fees.Dollar and senseThe union workers at the Federal Mint went on strike. They are demanding to make less money. Most chiropractors keep their money in a joint account. Money isnt everything, and dont let anybody tell you it is. There are other things, such as credit cards, stocks, bonds, letters of credit, and checks. Counterfeiters earn money the old-fashioned way. They make it. Politics is the art of obtaining money from the rich and votes from the poor, on the pretext of protecting each from the other. If money doesnt grow on trees, then why do banks have branches? Men are like bank accounts. Without a lot of money, they dont generate much interest. The reason for tight money is that too many paychecks are cashed in taverns. There are more important things in life than money, but they wont go out with you if youre broke. She didnt marry him for his money, but she sure is divorcing him for it. Money still talks; but with the dollar so depreciated, it no longer talks common cents. His wife is a magician; nobody makes money disappear like her. I try to save my money. Who knows, maybe one day itll become valuable again.Many happy returnsAfter lavishing untold wealth in money, furs, cars, and jewelry on a beautiful blonde show girl, a certain old playboy finally made her his wife. That old relic, an acquaintance hooted. Do you suppose that could be a love match? Heck, no, rejoined the other. The old coot married her for his money.Parting giftUncle John came to stay, and before he left he gave Some tales in Money Smart Week PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Christs Church of Marion CountySaturday, April 28: Mens Prayer Group, 9 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Sunday School, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Joy Night, 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 2: Bible Study, 7 p.m. Christs Church of Marion County is at 6768 S.W. 80th St., off State Road 200, Ocala.

His rascally old father and wayward daughter complicate matters even more as he is caught in this hilarious dilemma. Call Amelia and Ron Fiore to get seats for this trip.Photography ClubOn April 14, 20 Oak Run Photography Club members experienced one of the best field trips ever. The weather was great. The visit to Hennessey Arabian LLC farm started with the general manager, George Zbyszewski, explaining the operation to us. It is obvious that he loves his work and is very proud of it. He was interesting and very cordial. The farm is world class. They sell Arabian horses to Arabs! In fact, they sell more horses in the Mideast than in the United States. People come from all over the world to learn the breeding techniques used here. The barns are spotless, clean enough to eat in. In fact, you can rent one for special events and have it catered there. (The stalls are pressure washed before being used like this.) The owners, Frank and Carol Hennessey, have built a lovely place for the beautiful horses they love and breed. Of course the horses were the main attraction. They were beautiful, friendly, and loved our carrots. What a tour! Lunch afterward at Willistons Ivy House was delicious as always. We had a private room for our group of 20 at three tables. There was lots of conversation and getting to know one another better. It was a great day. We applauded Laurie Stamm, Walter Markowski, and Marty OGrady for great field trips this year. Unfortunately, Marty was not feeling well and was not with us. We missed him.Laurel Oaks Neighbors Night OutApril 18 seventy-four Laurel Oaks residents enjoyed Neighbors Night Out together in the Braised Onion Restaurants banquet room. They gathered at 4:30 p.m. for social time. Waiters began taking orders at 5 p.m. The room was set up for 70 people, as requested, but more than 70 showed up necessitating an additional table. Everyone said the food was delicious. The room was rocking with pleasant conversation and no one seemed to mind the extended time required to serve so many people arriving simultaneously. Nine people won door prizes. The grand prize of a Braised Onion gift certificate was won by Ed Wixon. The event was coordinated by Shelley and NC Sizemore. The attached photo shows only one of eight tables.Royal Oaks Mens GolfApril 20 saw the fog roll in early, and the first few holes were played on a misty and gloomy day. However, this didnt seem to affect the scores too much, as the golfers once again showed they could overcome the elements. The game was the usual three best net, and 36 golfers participated. The winners were: first with a 193 Dave Dawson, Frank Kelley, Sam Sample, and Bruce Drake; second with a 194 Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Wayne Feeman, and Dick Slayton; third with a 196 Bob Albright, Bill Start, Ed Simnowitz, and Paul Colatruglio. Closest to the pin were Dave Dawson, Gene Topp, and Steve Szabo (2).Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn April 16 and 19 we had our Royal Oaks Lady Niners golf championship with gross and net winners. Our gross winner was Kerry Timms, and Elsa Berbig came in second. Our net winners were Eleanor Cerlenko first, and tied in second Vange Bell, Sally Crass, Ginger Drake and Diane Dufresne.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com For the past few months, the Marion Landing Quilters have been spearheading an effort to help the Marion County Childrens Alliance. They sent out an appeal to the community for donations of soft, cuddly toys and childrens blankets which are used by the agency to give comfort to children, many of which are victims of domestic violence. On April 3, at our Tuesday Social, the Quilters presented stuffed animals and quilts to Monica Bryant, Family Violence Prevention Coordinator for Marion County Childrens Alliance. Monica was recently recognized as one who helped the Center achieve its mission to aid, comfort and empower victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Since April is National Child Abuse Prevention month, our donations of soft and cuddly toys plus childrens blankets are very appropriate at this time, said Mary Jo Eggers, representative of the Quilters group. Community yard sale May 5Dont forget to drop by the Marion Landing Community Yard Sale next Saturday, May 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center parking lot. There will be more than 40 tables set up with many interesting items, and youre sure to find something youll love. The Lifestyle Center is located on Southwest 65th Avenue Road, just off State Road 200 across from Queen of Peace church.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com For the past few months, the Marion Landing Quilters have been spearheading an effort to help the Marion County Childrens Alliance. They sent out an appeal to the community for donations of soft, cuddly toys and childrens blankets which are used by the agency to give comfort to children, many of which are victims of domestic violence. On April 3, at our Tuesday Social, the Quilters presented stuffed animals and quilts to Monica Bryant, Family Violence Prevention Coordinator for Marion County Childrens Alliance. Monica was recently recognized as one who helped the Center achieve its mission to aid, comfort and empower victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Since April is National Child Abuse Prevention month, our donations of soft and cuddly toys plus childrens blankets are very appropriate at this time, said Mary Jo Eggers, representative of the Quilters group. Community yard sale May 5Dont forget to drop by the Marion Landing Community Yard Sale next Saturday, May 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center parking lot. There will be more than 40 tables set up with many interesting items, and youre sure to find something youll love. The Lifestyle Center is located on Southwest 65th Avenue Road, just off State Road 200 across from Queen of Peace church. This event is free, and the public is welcome to come.Volunteer recognizedAt the April 3 Tuesday Social, Dee Stahl was presented with the Volunteer Appreciation Award by Board Treasurer John Moran.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com According to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, this week is Money Smart Week. This puzzled me for some time. After taxes, none of us have any money to be smart with. Then it dawned; we are still smarting from having to pay all that tax money. Today, Pun Alley has some smart money tales and some to smart about.Sweet notesBy night three violinists played in the symphony orchestra. During the day, to make a little money on the side, they used their musical talents by roving the city streets and having impromptu concerts wherever they thought they could make some money from anyone passing by. They called themselves A Random Act Of Violins. Silent teller Young man, I want to know how much money my husband drew out of his account yesterday, demanded the woman of the teller in a bank. I cannot give you that information, said the teller firmly. But arent you the paying teller? asked the woman. Yes, that is correct, replied the young man. But Im not the telling teller. Take me to the bankA stranger in New York asked a young man the dihis nephew five dollars. Now be careful with that money, Tommy, he said. Remember the saying, A fool and his money are soon parted. Yes, Uncle, replied Tommy, but I want to thank you for parting with it, just the same.Democrat or Republican?There are hundreds of ways to make money, said a politician, but only one honest way. Whats that? asked his opponent in debate. Aha, retorted the first, I thought you wouldnt know.Creditable Jack spotted a friend one day and reminded him that he still owed a $250 loan and insisted the man pay up. The friend pulled out a checkbook and wrote a check for the full amount. Skeptical about the mans good faith, Jack went directly to the bank and presented the check for payment. The teller told him he couldnt cash the check because the friends account was $25 short. Jack went to the customers desk for a few minutes, came back to the teller, deposited $35 to the account of the friend, and then again presented the $250 check and walked out with a net gain of $215.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. rection to the Chase National Bank. Ill take you there for five dollars, replied the young fellow. When the stranger found that his guide had walked all of two blocks for $5 he paid it but said, That was an easy five for you. Yes, said the young man, but you must remember that bank directors get big fees.Dollar and senseThe union workers at the Federal Mint went on strike. They are demanding to make less money. Most chiropractors keep their money in a joint account. Money isnt everything, and dont let anybody tell you it is. There are other things, such as credit cards, stocks, bonds, letters of credit, and checks. Counterfeiters earn money the old-fashioned way. They make it. Politics is the art of obtaining money from the rich and votes from the poor, on the pretext of protecting each from the other. If money doesnt grow on trees, then why do banks have branches? Men are like bank accounts. Without a lot of money, they dont generate much interest. The reason for tight money is that too many paychecks are cashed in taverns. There are more important things in life than money, but they wont go out with you if youre broke. She didnt marry him for his money, but she sure is divorcing him for it. Money still talks; but with the dollar so depreciated, it no longer talks common cents. His wife is a magician; nobody makes money disappear like her. I try to save my money. Who knows, maybe one day itll become valuable again.Many happy returnsAfter lavishing untold wealth in money, furs, cars, and jewelry on a beautiful blonde show girl, a certain old playboy finally made her his wife. That old relic, an acquaintance hooted. Do you suppose that could be a love match? Heck, no, rejoined the other. The old coot married her for his money.Parting giftUncle John came to stay, and before he left he gave Some tales in Money Smart Week PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Christs Church of Marion CountySaturday, April 28: Mens Prayer Group, 9 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Sunday School, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Joy Night, 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 2: Bible Study, 7 p.m. Christs Church of Marion County is at 6768 S.W. 80th St., off State Road 200, Ocala.

His rascally old father and wayward daughter complicate matters even more as he is caught in this hilarious dilemma. Call Amelia and Ron Fiore to get seats for this trip.Photography ClubOn April 14, 20 Oak Run Photography Club members experienced one of the best field trips ever. The weather was great. The visit to Hennessey Arabian LLC farm started with the general manager, George Zbyszewski, explaining the operation to us. It is obvious that he loves his work and is very proud of it. He was interesting and very cordial. The farm is world class. They sell Arabian horses to Arabs! In fact, they sell more horses in the Mideast than in the United States. People come from all over the world to learn the breeding techniques used here. The barns are spotless, clean enough to eat in. In fact, you can rent one for special events and have it catered there. (The stalls are pressure washed before being used like this.) The owners, Frank and Carol Hennessey, have built a lovely place for the beautiful horses they love and breed. Of course the horses were the main attraction. They were beautiful, friendly, and loved our carrots. What a tour! Lunch afterward at Willistons Ivy House was delicious as always. We had a private room for our group of 20 at three tables. There was lots of conversation and getting to know one another better. It was a great day. We applauded Laurie Stamm, Walter Markowski, and Marty OGrady for great field trips this year. Unfortunately, Marty was not feeling well and was not with us. We missed him.Laurel Oaks Neighbors Night OutApril 18 seventy-four Laurel Oaks residents enjoyed Neighbors Night Out together in the Braised Onion Restaurants banquet room. They gathered at 4:30 p.m. for social time. Waiters began taking orders at 5 p.m. The room was set up for 70 people, as requested, but more than 70 showed up necessitating an additional table. Everyone said the food was delicious. The room was rocking with pleasant conversation and no one seemed to mind the extended time required to serve so many people arriving simultaneously. Nine people won door prizes. The grand prize of a Braised Onion gift certificate was won by Ed Wixon. The event was coordinated by Shelley and NC Sizemore. The attached photo shows only one of eight tables.Royal Oaks Mens GolfApril 20 saw the fog roll in early, and the first few holes were played on a misty and gloomy day. However, this didnt seem to affect the scores too much, as the golfers once again showed they could overcome the elements. The game was the usual three best net, and 36 golfers participated. The winners were: first with a 193 Dave Dawson, Frank Kelley, Sam Sample, and Bruce Drake; second with a 194 Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Wayne Feeman, and Dick Slayton; third with a 196 Bob Albright, Bill Start, Ed Simnowitz, and Paul Colatruglio. Closest to the pin were Dave Dawson, Gene Topp, and Steve Szabo (2).Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn April 16 and 19 we had our Royal Oaks Lady Niners golf championship with gross and net winners. Our gross winner was Kerry Timms, and Elsa Berbig came in second. Our net winners were Eleanor Cerlenko first, and tied in second Vange Bell, Sally Crass, Ginger Drake and Diane Dufresne. We all enjoyed the day and having great weather makes it more enjoyable.Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday April 17 we played low net.

It is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found in the mail coupons for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I finished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terrific and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goofing off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just fine, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I first walked in. I focused on the menu. Looking up from the menu what I saw shocked me to the core. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the floor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume fit quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not fit. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order finally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dards of Official Conduct of the House of Representatives can be carried in a brief case for quick reference if needed. Among other things the ethics standards cover gifts, events, travel, and conflicts of interest. They also say no one is placed at risk by seeking confidential Ethics Committee advice when in doubt a sort of a dig-safe warning to consider before digging an ethical hole. The Ethics Manual also says members should never use information received confidentially in performance of governmental duties as a means of making private profits. Why then was it necessary for CBSs 60 Minutes to uncover stock trading based on insider information which had been going on for years in the offices of Congress? Minority leader Nancy Pelosis office called the 60 Minutes expose a smear, and Speaker John Boehners office called it idiotic. How could Congressional leaders not have known about insider dealing when bills to stop trading on Congressional knowledge (Stock Act) had been introduced in three successive sessions 2006, 2007, and 2009 all of which died in committee. After two more years of foot dragging by both parties, 93 members of Congress signed on as cosponsors of what is now known as the STOCK ACT, which President Obama signed into law on April 4, 2012. Little wonder Congress has a ten percent approval rating. Some members of Congress should be term limited at the polls come November, and regularly thereafter. Too long in public service is dangerous to their ethical health. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The professionalisms of these actions show that this was a well-planned and highly aggressive action with those at the top involved. These people involved should all be put in a leave without pay status and possibly imprisoned during this investigation to show the importance of how much this means to the Secret Service and our country. I am not sure that we should even allow the Secret Service to investigate itself to come to a proper resolution. How much confidence can you have in an organization where the leaders do not know or wont admit to knowing what the secret service does on their own time. When they are on assignment in foreign countries and especially places like Colombia which is known to be the drug capital of the Americas, these agents should be on 24-hour duty with only the best of the best protecting our president. The Secret Service has let our country down. Jerry Segovis OcalaAt least be honestLast week I shared that the hypocrites involved in trying to make the Martin shooting a racial issue were really attacking our Stand Your Ground Law and this has proven to be true. Facts are coming out that dispute any racial motivation in the shooting and we are getting new evidence that will influence the case. This goes to prove that we should never jump to conclusions without getting all the facts, and those who did have made themselves look extremely foolish and are exposed as the racists they are. We now have a task force that will be reviewing our Stand Your Ground Law and some have openly made it known that they want it repealed. It comes as no surprise that they are Democrats, such as Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, who has been an ardent critic of the law since its inception. Most of our citizens approve of the law and the positive effect it has in giving us the right to confront the criminals and protect our lives and property, and it has worked. Sen. Smith apparently told the panel that the Martin shooting is an example of the ambiguity of the law and mentioned the unintended consequences it has created. My question to Mr. Smith is just what other consequences have been created? This question is directed to any liberal Democrat or other critics, but please give examples for our consideration. There is no LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 question we can point to instances that property and innocent lives have been saved and such cases have been documented. I believe decent Americans are interested in protecting the victim, not the criminal. In addition to the above, I have to confess I cannot understand the thinking of liberals at all. We have a large number of liberals who want to do away with capitalism, openly support Communism, and believe in a welfare state. We have so many social programs in effect today that it will prove difficult for any politician to eliminate many of them. Too many now have their hand out and expect everyone else to support them. I wonder who these takers will vote for? I think we all know the answer to that question! Wayne Rackley OcalaNot enough timeToday, Saturday, April 21, I received two bills: one from SECO with a due date of May 4 which allows 13 days for me to respond, the post office to deliver, and them to receive my payment. The second from Discover Card has a due date of May 12 which allows 21 days for the same sequence of events. More than a 50 percent increase and much more than that for the part of the sequence I can control. I have asked SECO twice why they do not give customers as much time to pay as other creditors and have not received a satisfactory response. Today, I am home and this is no problem. However, I frequently travel and it is a problem. I invite everyone who shares this feeling to let SECO know about it.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com Most Congress people arrive in Washington with ordinary backgrounds and an agenda of noble intentions to do good for constituents and the nation. It doesnt take long however for Congress people to become exceptional. To some extent its not their fault. It may be an effect of ingesting Washington air and water. On a Saturday some years ago we delivered our daughter to Washington for her congreswww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 27, 2012 Trying to follow this controversy concerning Munroe Regional Medical Center is really challenging for those of us who are just simple folk. All these tales of leases and taxes and rankings, etc., can make us dizzy. I do know one thing. If the Munroe powers-that-be succeed in getting a new tax on the ballot in November, it hasnt got a snowballs chance in you-know-where of succeeding, especially in this economy, even if there are some who are willing to pay a little more for the success of the hospital. All of this talk to get me thinking occurred at the County Commission last week, when a couple of speakers spoke about a recent meeting they had attended concerning the hospital. One said the vote to consider the tax was taken twice and that the reconsideration and the push for the tax may have been illegal. He spoke at length about how he considered the meeting was improperly conducted, not following Roberts Rules of Order. This got me thinking back to four years ago. I had been having some breathing problems for a few days, and this particular morning woke up really struggling. Every time I exhaled, I gurgled (didnt mean to gross you out). I asked my wife to take me to get looked at, and she knew something was wrong because I let her drive. When it comes to being in the car, Im a control freak. We went to one of the neighborhood walk-in clinics near my home, where they took one look at me and called an ambulance. I was transported to Munroe (no lights or sirens, thank goodness) where I was examined and admitted. This is not to say the other hospital isnt a good one. My father was a pharmacist who worked at both hospitals, but he retired from Munroe and my mom was a longtime volunteer there, so we have just naturally been Munroe oriented. A week after I was wheeled into Munroes Emergency Department, I was walking back into my home, feeling like a new man, and within a couple of days I was back at work (at the time it was in Williston). To this day, I feel that Munroe, and the cardiologist, Dr. Ali Nasser, who was assigned to me, saved my life. I still go to that cardiologist today. My heart was at about 5 to 10 percent functioning capacity when I went in; today its normal for someone my age. All of this leads me to my reasoning in the hospital dispute. I dont care who leases it, or who owns it, I just want to make sure its there if I should need it again, or if any of my family or friends needs it. I like to think that there are a lot of people who feel that way. When theyre speeding down the road in a rescue vehicle, theyre not stopping to ask if the hospital is being supported by a tax, if its privately leased, or if putting the tax on the ballot was legal. They just want to make sure there will be doctors and nurses waiting for them when they pull in. In all this discussion, Im hearing very little discussion about patients. It all seems to be about legalities and money. In fact, both sides need to have a little more patience, and think about the patients. This thing should be resolved without accusations and finger pointing. Just make sure that the one pointing is a nurse, saying, Take him into Room 2. Getting treatment should be the most important thing for all to consider.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

At last, one of those new roads that keep popping up all over Marion County opened up Tuesday morning as a road to somewhere and an important one it is. The city of Ocala held a ceremony to unveil the sign to its new Ocala Business Park at Ocala International Airport, and with it opened Southwest 67th Avenue Road. The road now goes from State Road 40 south to Southwest 38th Street. The southern portion of the road has been in existence for some time; it is used as the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. But now reachable are a myriad of industrial sites along this road, which already has utilities available. It is a major effort to attract good, solid businesses to Ocala and Marion County, and with that, some decent jobs to help control the unemployment rate in this area. The area needs locations such as this if it is going to attract the right type of economic development. And with location, location, location being the most important thing for a lot of people, putting it within sight of the Ocala International Airport, and within a few miles of Interstate 75 with good four-lane access on State Road 40 makes the site ideal for growth in the financial area. Ocala City Council President Suzy Heinbockel put it perfectly when she said, Were paying attention; were taking advice; were trying to do the right thing. In this case, the city is doing the right thing. All of us, even those who do not live within the city limits, should hope that the project bears fruit. We all stand to benefit from more business, and more jobs, in the area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Business park road opens in Ocala Hospital: Patience and patients Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Congress is a club for exceptional people Cross Florida Barge CanalThose of you who didnt live here in Florida back in the 1960s as I did, wont remember the controversy regarding the building of the Cross Florida Barge Canal. It was a great idea at the time and still is to this day. The reasons for not building were strictly political, with little foundation. It was a pity it didnt happen. Today, its being discussed again, and its even better now. Gas prices then were about 29 cents a gallon and fuel oil on a par with gas prices. Just think, with the Canal, it could knock off close to a week for shipping to get from major ports like Baltimore, New York, Savannah, and Charleston, S.C., to get to Gulf States such as Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and yes, the western part of Florida. Not only saving time but think of the cost of shipping products to the Gulf States. Shipping by sea has been proven to be the cheapest way to ship goods. Of course cost is a factor but, that is rather insignificant. I dont believe Florida should carry all the burden of building the canal. Other states and companies that would benefit from the Canal, could well help support the project. By the way this would not only be an advantage involving shipping from American ports, but from foreign ports as well. They said the Panama Canal couldnt be built, but when the United States took over the project, we showed them what American ingenuity could do. Oh yes, did I forget to mention, jobs. Can you imagine the impact the Canal would have on the economy of not only Florida but the country? Those of you who dont remember the St. Lawrence Seaway, and the C & O Canal, should know what good they did, and have done for this country and our economy as well as for other countries as well. Apparently property acquisition is not a problem, so why dont we pressure the Legislature and the governor to get it done now, not 10 years from now. For the governor, who hasnt done much in the way of progress for Florida, it could be a feather in his cap. Speaking just for Florida, do you have any idea of the impact it would have on our economy? Wow! So, lets get those dredges going and give a big Shout Out for Florida.

A kindly person at the apartment complex suggested we call the utilities and tell them in a friendly way that our daughter could not be at her apartment on weekdays, because she would be working at the offices of Congressman Dogoody (a pseudonym). With instant courtesy the utilities performed the installation on Sunday. Doing good in Congress can be financially rewarding. Nearly half of the sitting members are millionaires, an unlikely result considering their modest $174,000 annual salaries for their full-time jobs. In all fairness, some members are millionaires because of inheritances, marriages, or successful careers in the real world. Interestingly, over the past five years, while most Americans were watching their net worth decline, the exceptional members of Congress experienced a continuing rise in their net wealth very substantial increases for some. Notwithstanding occasional examples of ethics violations, most Congress people stay within their written code of conduct. The 15 page, short form Staning bout. Now that Mitt Romney is the Republican candidate, he is acting like the election is over. Just this week he said, President Obama should start packing in the White House. He obviously has no respect for the presidential office and is totally lacking in any class. Then we had Ann Romney claim we should elect Mitt because it is his turn. That privilege only applies to the Royal Family, she may be confused, or maybe she really thinks the Romneys are royalty. John Toner OcalaNot so secretI read in the paper that the Secret Service said no sensitive equipment was in the hotel rooms of these agents. If the presidents schedule showing times and places where he is going to appear and be available is not sensitive information, then these agents and military involved do not understand the importance of their positions. To allow someone to retire before the investigation is completed is totally improper and sends the message that you can get away with anything if you can retire or resign to avoid consequences. How do we know that this recent retiree isnt one of the ring leaders and involved in these types of sex parties with the possibility of drugs being involved? We may never know who arranged the disgraceful actions of those involved in this scandal.

There is a mutual respect among the players that goes beyond just good sportsmanship. Everyone mixes fantastic shots with an occasional mulligan. Compliments abound for the good shot and laughter and banter accompany a miscue or missed easy shot. Because everyone is playing for fun and a challenge, theres no hesitancy in giving or getting good advice on how to line up a shot or leave your opponent at a disadvantage. This shared knowledge between players allows the men to not only have fun with their own team but develop camaraderie with the visiting team. Friendships are made and respect shared when the Mens Pool League plays. If you have any interest in the game of Nine Ball or Eight Ball, try coming to the pool room at the clubhouse almost any morning at 9 and give it a try. Youll be glad you did. (By the way, Cherrywood won on this day, but there are a lot of games yet to be played and a lot of fun yet to be had.)Trivia GameWednesday evening at 7 Rich Hurley fired up the big screen with questions from the 50s and 60s along with Sports. As always, there were several teams anxious to compete for the prize money, well maybe not for the money. Teams compete mainly for bragging rights and to test their knowledge in the good natured atmosphere of friends and neighbors. Rich out did him self with questions that only the writers of Sports Illustrated would know or History Professors from Harvard might have a clue about. Seriously, everyone guessed their way through and had a blast doing it. Some of the off the wall answers were funnier than the real ones and there was a lot of laughter through out the contest. All the money thats taken in, and thats a whole dollar per player, goes to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only is everyone having a good time, but they are helping a good cause. For a good time, come on out for Trivia night next month and test your skills with the rest of us. Feel free to bring snacks and beverages of your choice as well. Movie NightTuesday, May 1, is Movie Night at Cherrywood. Come get your free pop corn and lemonade or bring you own treats and drinks and watch War Horse. This action drama is a first run hit thats been a big draw at the box office. Show time is 7 p.m. to watch this great film on the big screen at the Clubhouse.Yard Sale SuccessSaturdays Cherrywood yard sale was one of the best. There was an abundance of households that took part and a wide variety of items for sale. On behalf of the residents I would like to thank all those visitors who came from all over Marion County to shop and be part of this semi-annual event. I would also like to thank Jim Clark of the Citizen for allowing us to publicize the yard sale. There were many bargains and items on sale and one of the best deals of day was found by Genevieve Downs. She found the Queen Ann dining room table; six chairs and matching hutch for a third of the price it would have cost her at any store. After making the purchase, she casually mentioned how it might be a little difficult to get it home right away. As luck would have it, another resident of Cherrywood was standing next to her and volunteered to transport it right then and there in his truck. This is yet another example of neighbor helping neighbor. Gen, who donates platelets at the blood bank, found out that the owner of the truck is on dialysis and is a recipient of platelets as part of the treatment. Its a small world and our giving and sharing touches many people we dont even know. Congratulations to Gen on her find and to all who got bargains at the yard sale.

Mel moved to Cherrywood from Mississippi 12 years ago with his wife Margie. They have been married for 41 years and have a daughter, Amanda, who lives in Columbus, Maryland. Amanda is a chemist and Margie does editorial work for a popular Florida author. Mel considers my wonderful wife and beautiful daughter among the greatest accomplishments of his life. His Sister, Priscilla still lives in Mississippi, as does his Mom, Martha. After serving at the Pentagon in U.S. Army Intelligence, Mel was hired by the Department of Defense where he worked for 30 years. He has a Bachelors of Arts Degree from the University of Mississippi and a Masters Degree from Western Maryland College. His skill and education with languages made him a natural for work with D.O.D. but because of his security classification we must let it go at that. Mel first became interested in art while working in wood shop back in his Junior High School days. He would carve animals, wooden chains, and other pieces from the scraps of wood he found. After he retired, he said to him self, If youre ever going to become good at this type of thing, you better get started, and get started he did. Mostly self taught, Mel studied under Dale Enochs in the Montoya Famous Sculpture Series in West Palm Beach. While he works in both wood and stone, he prefers working with stone. He has never gotten into painting as an art form because he confesses, I like the three dimensional medium of stone and wood. His latest piece, entitled La Venus Americane (pictured with Mel) is a beautiful carving made from a piece of Live Oak. Oddly enough, when he received the piece of wood, a gift from a co-worker, it had a peculiar natural bend in it that reminded Mel of the Venus De Milo statue. This inspired his work. Over 150 hours of labor transformed the tree limb into a beautiful sculpture. While the attention to detail is excellent, the expression on the face of the art work is the most captivating aspect of this piece. The expression of love on her face in all its aspects, from peace and serenity to sadness and melancholy is captivating. Putting emotion into a work of art is one of the hallmarks of a good artist and Mel has accomplished this with La Venus Americane. Aside from working in his garage shop, Mel works several part time jobs. Four days a week he is in a shop called Artful Gifts. The store is a satellite for Marion Cultural Alliance with its headquarters in Brick City Center for the Arts in downtown Ocala. He also serves as vice president of the Ocala Art Group and Gallery East organizations. Oddly enough, Mel also is employed by Joseph A. Banks clothiers at Heathbrook two days a week. To keep in shape, Mel runs a couple of Marathon races each year and runs daily throughout Cherrywood Estates. He has been running for 20 years and maintains a rigorous training regime. Another one of Mels works is on display in the Atrium of the New Judicial Center in downtown Ocala. Titled The American Girls, this interesting work is two women, side by side with one eye of each covered by their hair. The first girls eye is open, signifying the vigilance of the justice system and the other girls eye is closed, representing the blindness of justice. There are more subtleties to the statue but youll have to check it out for yourself. More shows are available for you to enjoy Mels artwork and he would be glad to furnish you with the dates and times. Email Mel at www.galleryeast.org or call him at 352-245-2781. Mel loves the Cherrywood community and Ocala. He enjoys the warm weather; the slow pace; the age group of people around him and, he said its like taking a step back in time. We are proud to have one of only two or three sculpture artists in the Ocala area living here. Mel and his wife Margie are truly assets to our community.From Your ReporterIf you have a person or item you would like highlighted in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@Yahoo.com.

The road now connects State Road 40 (West Silver Springs Boulevard) to Southwest 38th Street at the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. The mostly two-lane road snakes through several curves as it opens up land for industrial development to the west of the airport. The ceremony was held in the presence of many city officials and the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors. Included in the ceremony was the placing of current day materials in a time capsule. Plans call for the capsule to be buried and then to be opened in the year 2035. City Manager Matt Brower welcomed guests to the opening of the 2.4-mile road, a $3.4 million project. The city has provided utilities along the route to encourage new industry. Brower said the goal was to bring jobs, and help grow Ocala International Airport. Suzy Heinbockel, Ocala City Council president, praised the decision to build the road and the park. Were paying attention. Were taking advice and trying to do the right thing, she said. Pete Tesch from the Ocala-Marion County Economic Development Corp., said that with the new park we can attract the right type of business. Various dignitaries were called to the podium to place items in the capsule. Some of those included were a key to the city, the mayors gold medal, a current newspaper, a photo of the council, a Can Do hat, images, drawings and design of the park, a groundbreaking picture, a new county publication that shows pictorial images, a Chamber of Commerce ribbon, pictures of planning sessions, a history of the airport with an SD card (the hope was expressed that it could still be read in 2035), a journal in which guests had written their predictions, and a business card from the company that did the sign. After the conclusion of the ceremony, several participants headed south on the new road to get a look at the features.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200. Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Dentistry From the Heart Dr. Stephen Dunn, a dentist at 9401 S.W. State Road 200, provided free fillings and extractions for the needy last Friday under the Dentistry From the Heart program. At the right, Dr. Dunn, assisted by Lisa Loman, dental assistant, fills a tooth for a patient. Below the dentist, at left, is shown with part of the crew before the crowds arrived.PHOTOS BY RON RATNER Bring your pills to Sheriffs Office this Saturday Local office will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Contractors are in the process of installing traffic monitoring cameras along State Road 200, State Road 40, U.S. Highway 27, Northwest 27th Avenue and Southwest 60th Avenue. The cameras will provide realtime information to Ocala and Marion County Transportation Management Centers. Personnel will use the information to adjust timing during unusual traffic conditions, such as when an accident causes motorists to be diverted off I-75 into Ocala. Along with the traffic monitoring cameras (which do not record), contractors are installing Dynamic Message Signs that provide directions to motorists exiting I-75 and help them maneuver through town to the appropriate interstate re-entry point. Altogether there are 17 cameras and 15 message signs that are being installed. The message signs will remain dark until needed to relay important traffic information. Installation is expected to be completed by the end of May. Funding for the $685,000 project was provided by the Florida Department of Transportation. The Citizenasked the city if these cameras would be accessible to the public on the Internet, and was told that the city did not yet have the capability to do that, but it could be put into a future budget.

Additional photo, Page 2. Ocala installing cameras for traffic, not to record Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last falls Ribathon. On Saturday, May 5 starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of baby back ribs costs $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. Last October, all of the ribs were sold and gone by 1 p.m., so it is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. Prepaid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital. You can also buy tickets at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, M&S Bank, Alarion Bank, TD Bank, the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. and Coldwell Banker/Ellison Realty. For more information, visit the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest Facebook page or call Pete at 352873-6291.

Voluntary burn ban remains in effectThe Multi-Agency Wildland Task Force met Monday to discuss local wildfire conditions and decided to continue the voluntary burn ban issued on April 12. While Marion County received some rainfall over the weekend, the area would need additional rain over an extended period of time to significantly impact current dry conditions. The drought index is currently 476 in Marion County, with some areas registering as high as 604. On the scale which has a maximum range of 800, 500 is usually the wildfire danger zone. The task force encourages residents to continue to postpone burning until conditions improve, and instead take yard debris to the Baseline Landfill or one of the countys other 17 recycling centers. Addresses and hours of operation for these recycling centers are available at http://www.marioncountyfl.org/SolidWaste/Divisions_Recycling_Collectio n.aspx. The group will continue to monitor local fire and weather conditions, and is scheduled to meet again on May 7. 000B6CB

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200. Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Dentistry From the Heart Dr. Stephen Dunn, a dentist at 9401 S.W. State Road 200, provided free fillings and extractions for the needy last Friday under the Dentistry From the Heart program. At the right, Dr. Dunn, assisted by Lisa Loman, dental assistant, fills a tooth for a patient. Below the dentist, at left, is shown with part of the crew before the crowds arrived.PHOTOS BY RON RATNER Bring your pills to Sheriffs Office this Saturday Local office will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Contractors are in the process of installing traffic monitoring cameras along State Road 200, State Road 40, U.S. Highway 27, Northwest 27th Avenue and Southwest 60th Avenue. The cameras will provide realtime information to Ocala and Marion County Transportation Management Centers. Personnel will use the information to adjust timing during unusual traffic conditions, such as when an accident causes motorists to be diverted off I-75 into Ocala. Along with the traffic monitoring cameras (which do not record), contractors are installing Dynamic Message Signs that provide directions to motorists exiting I-75 and help them maneuver through town to the appropriate interstate re-entry point. Altogether there are 17 cameras and 15 message signs that are being installed. The message signs will remain dark until needed to relay important traffic information. Installation is expected to be completed by the end of May. Funding for the $685,000 project was provided by the Florida Department of Transportation. The Citizen asked the city if these cameras would be accessible to the public on the Internet, and was told that the city did not yet have the capability to do that, but it could be put into a future budget.

Additional photo, Page 2. Ocala installing cameras for traffic, not to record Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last falls Ribathon. On Saturday, May 5 starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of baby back ribs costs $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. Last October, all of the ribs were sold and gone by 1 p.m., so it is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. Prepaid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital. You can also buy tickets at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, M&S Bank, Alarion Bank, TD Bank, the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. and Coldwell Banker/Ellison Realty. For more information, visit the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest Facebook page or call Pete at 352873-6291.

Voluntary burn ban remains in effectThe Multi-Agency Wildland Task Force met Monday to discuss local wildfire conditions and decided to continue the voluntary burn ban issued on April 12. While Marion County received some rainfall over the weekend, the area would need additional rain over an extended period of time to significantly impact current dry conditions. The drought index is currently 476 in Marion County, with some areas registering as high as 604. On the scale which has a maximum range of 800, 500 is usually the wildfire danger zone. The task force encourages residents to continue to postpone burning until conditions improve, and instead take yard debris to the Baseline Landfill or one of the countys other 17 recycling centers. Addresses and hours of operation for these recycling centers are available at http://www.marioncountyfl.org/SolidWaste/Divisions_Recycling_Collectio n.aspx. The group will continue to monitor local fire and weather conditions, and is scheduled to meet again on May 7. 000B6CB

The road now connects State Road 40 (West Silver Springs Boulevard) to Southwest 38th Street at the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. The mostly two-lane road snakes through several curves as it opens up land for industrial development to the west of the airport. The ceremony was held in the presence of many city officials and the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors. Included in the ceremony was the placing of current day materials in a time capsule. Plans call for the capsule to be buried and then to be opened in the year 2035. City Manager Matt Brower welcomed guests to the opening of the 2.4-mile road, a $3.4 million project. The city has provided utilities along the route to encourage new industry. Brower said the goal was to bring jobs, and help grow Ocala International Airport. Suzy Heinbockel, Ocala City Council president, praised the decision to build the road and the park. Were paying attention. Were taking advice and trying to do the right thing, she said. Pete Tesch from the Ocala-Marion County Economic Development Corp., said that with the new park we can attract the right type of business. Various dignitaries were called to the podium to place items in the capsule. Some of those included were a key to the city, the mayors gold medal, a current newspaper, a photo of the council, a Can Do hat, images, drawings and design of the park, a groundbreaking picture, a new county publication that shows pictorial images, a Chamber of Commerce ribbon, pictures of planning sessions, a history of the airport with an SD card (the hope was expressed that it could still be read in 2035), a journal in which guests had written their predictions, and a business card from the company that did the sign. After the conclusion of the ceremony, several participants headed south on the new road to get a look at the features.

Mel moved to Cherrywood from Mississippi 12 years ago with his wife Margie. They have been married for 41 years and have a daughter, Amanda, who lives in Columbus, Maryland. Amanda is a chemist and Margie does editorial work for a popular Florida author. Mel considers my wonderful wife and beautiful daughter among the greatest accomplishments of his life. His Sister, Priscilla still lives in Mississippi, as does his Mom, Martha. After serving at the Pentagon in U.S. Army Intelligence, Mel was hired by the Department of Defense where he worked for 30 years. He has a Bachelors of Arts Degree from the University of Mississippi and a Masters Degree from Western Maryland College. His skill and education with languages made him a natural for work with D.O.D. but because of his security classification we must let it go at that. Mel first became interested in art while working in wood shop back in his Junior High School days. He would carve animals, wooden chains, and other pieces from the scraps of wood he found. After he retired, he said to him self, If youre ever going to become good at this type of thing, you better get started, and get started he did. Mostly self taught, Mel studied under Dale Enochs in the Montoya Famous Sculpture Series in West Palm Beach. While he works in both wood and stone, he prefers working with stone. He has never gotten into painting as an art form because he confesses, I like the three dimensional medium of stone and wood. His latest piece, entitled La Venus Americane (pictured with Mel) is a beautiful carving made from a piece of Live Oak. Oddly enough, when he received the piece of wood, a gift from a co-worker, it had a peculiar natural bend in it that reminded Mel of the Venus De Milo statue. This inspired his work. Over 150 hours of labor transformed the tree limb into a beautiful sculpture. While the attention to detail is excellent, the expression on the face of the art work is the most captivating aspect of this piece. The expression of love on her face in all its aspects, from peace and serenity to sadness and melancholy is captivating. Putting emotion into a work of art is one of the hallmarks of a good artist and Mel has accomplished this with La Venus Americane. Aside from working in his garage shop, Mel works several part time jobs. Four days a week he is in a shop called Artful Gifts. The store is a satellite for Marion Cultural Alliance with its headquarters in Brick City Center for the Arts in downtown Ocala. He also serves as vice president of the Ocala Art Group and Gallery East organizations. Oddly enough, Mel also is employed by Joseph A. Banks clothiers at Heathbrook two days a week. To keep in shape, Mel runs a couple of Marathon races each year and runs daily throughout Cherrywood Estates. He has been running for 20 years and maintains a rigorous training regime. Another one of Mels works is on display in the Atrium of the New Judicial Center in downtown Ocala. Titled The American Girls, this interesting work is two women, side by side with one eye of each covered by their hair. The first girls eye is open, signifying the vigilance of the justice system and the other girls eye is closed, representing the blindness of justice. There are more subtleties to the statue but youll have to check it out for yourself. More shows are available for you to enjoy Mels artwork and he would be glad to furnish you with the dates and times. Email Mel at www.galleryeast.org or call him at 352-245-2781. Mel loves the Cherrywood community and Ocala. He enjoys the warm weather; the slow pace; the age group of people around him and, he said its like taking a step back in time. We are proud to have one of only two or three sculpture artists in the Ocala area living here. Mel and his wife Margie are truly assets to our community.From Your ReporterIf you have a person or item you would like highlighted in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@Yahoo.com.

The ladies always have a good time at these functions and as this is the last one for the season, they will have to make plans for next years schedule. If you are a lady and you live in Cherrywood, call or see Geri to make your reservations for this fun group outing. Even if youve never been to one before, now would be a great time to get involved with these lovely ladies. Pool: A ball at CherrywoodOcala Palms Pool Team came to Cherrywood for a league game against our men on Tuesday the 17th. The competition was fierce in a good natured way with plenty of jokes, kibitzing and compliments. Your humble correspondent was invited to cover the games and for just plain good fun and relaxation, there are few things that can rival these outings. There is a mutual respect among the players that goes beyond just good sportsmanship. Everyone mixes fantastic shots with an occasional mulligan. Compliments abound for the good shot and laughter and banter accompany a miscue or missed easy shot. Because everyone is playing for fun and a challenge, theres no hesitancy in giving or getting good advice on how to line up a shot or leave your opponent at a disadvantage. This shared knowledge between players allows the men to not only have fun with their own team but develop camaraderie with the visiting team. Friendships are made and respect shared when the Mens Pool League plays. If you have any interest in the game of Nine Ball or Eight Ball, try coming to the pool room at the clubhouse almost any morning at 9 and give it a try. Youll be glad you did. (By the way, Cherrywood won on this day, but there are a lot of games yet to be played and a lot of fun yet to be had.) Trivia GameWednesday evening at 7 Rich Hurley fired up the big screen with questions from the 50s and 60s along with Sports. As always, there were several teams anxious to compete for the prize money, well maybe not for the money. Teams compete mainly for bragging rights and to test their knowledge in the good natured atmosphere of friends and neighbors. Rich out did him self with questions that only the writers of Sports Illustrated would know or History Professors from Harvard might have a clue about. Seriously, everyone guessed their way through and had a blast doing it. Some of the off the wall answers were funnier than the real ones and there was a lot of laughter through out the contest. All the money thats taken in, and thats a whole dollar per player, goes to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only is everyone having a good time, but they are helping a good cause. For a good time, come on out for Trivia night next month and test your skills with the rest of us. Feel free to bring snacks and beverages of your choice as well. Movie NightTuesday, May 1, is Movie Night at Cherrywood. Come get your free pop corn and lemonade or bring you own treats and drinks and watch War Horse. This action drama is a first run hit thats been a big draw at the box office. Show time is 7 p.m. to watch this great film on the big screen at the Clubhouse. Yard Sale SuccessSaturdays Cherrywood yard sale was one of the best. There was an abundance of households that took part and a wide variety of items for sale. On behalf of the residents I would like to thank all those visitors who came from all over Marion County to shop and be part of this semi-annual event. I would also like to thank Jim Clark of the Citizen for allowing us to publicize the yard sale. There were many bargains and items on sale and one of the best deals of day was found by Genevieve Downs. She found the Queen Ann dining room table; six chairs and matching hutch for a third of the price it would have cost her at any store. After making the purchase, she casually mentioned how it might be a little difficult to get it home right away. As luck would have it, another resident of Cherrywood was standing next to her and volunteered to transport it right then and there in his truck. This is yet another example of neighbor helping neighbor. Gen, who donates platelets at the blood bank, found out that the owner of the truck is on dialysis and is a recipient of platelets as part of the treatment. Its a small world and our giving and sharing touches many people we dont even know. Congratulations to Gen on her find and to all who got bargains at the yard sale.

But dont forget that some people are depending on you to keep promises that are very important to them. CA N C ER (J une 21 to J uly 22) You need to wait patiently for an answer to a workplace problem and not push for a decision. Remember: Time is on your side. A financial matter needs closer attention. LE O (J uly 23 to Aug 22) You now have information that can influence that decision you planned to make. But the clever Cat will consult a trusted friend or family member before making a major move.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com M ost Congress people arrive in Washington with ordinary backgrounds and an agenda of noble intentions to do good for constituents and the nation. It doesnt take long however for Congress people to become exceptional. To some extent its not their fault. It may be an effect of ingesting Washington air and water. On a Saturday some years ago we delivered our daughter to Washington for her congreswww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 T rying to follow this controversy concerning Munroe Regional Medical Center is really challenging for those of us who are just simple folk. All these tales of leases and taxes and rankings, etc., can make us dizzy. I do know one thing. If the Munroe powers-that-be succeed in getting a new tax on the ballot in November, it hasnt got a snowballs chance in you-know-where of succeeding, especially in this economy, even if there are some who are willing to pay a little more for the success of the hospital. All of this talk to get me thinking occurred at the County Commission last week, when a couple of speakers spoke about a recent meeting they had attended concerning the hospital. One said the vote to consider the tax was taken twice and that the reconsideration and the push for the tax may have been illegal. He spoke at length about how he considered the meeting was improperly conducted, not following Roberts Rules of Order. This got me thinking back to four years ago. I had been having some breathing problems for a few days, and this particular morning woke up really struggling. Every time I exhaled, I gurgled (didnt mean to gross you out). I asked my wife to take me to get looked at, and she knew something was wrong because I let her drive. When it comes to being in the car, Im a control freak. We went to one of the neighborhood walk-in clinics near my home, where they took one look at me and called an ambulance. I was transported to Munroe (no lights or sirens, thank goodness) where I was examined and admitted. This is not to say the other hospital isnt a good one. My father was a pharmacist who worked at both hospitals, but he retired from Munroe and my mom was a longtime volunteer there, so we have just naturally been Munroe oriented. A week after I was wheeled into Munroes Emergency Department, I was walking back into my home, feeling like a new man, and within a couple of days I was back at work (at the time it was in Williston). To this day, I feel that Munroe, and the cardiologist, Dr. Ali Nasser, who was assigned to me, saved my life. I still go to that cardiologist today. My heart was at about 5 to 10 percent functioning capacity when I went in; today its normal for someone my age. All of this leads me to my reasoning in the hospital dispute. I dont care who leases it, or who owns it, I just want to make sure its there if I should need it again, or if any of my family or friends needs it. I like to think that there are a lot of people who feel that way. When theyre speeding down the road in a rescue vehicle, theyre not stopping to ask if the hospital is being supported by a tax, if its privately leased, or if putting the tax on the ballot was legal. They just want to make sure there will be doctors and nurses waiting for them when they pull in. In all this discussion, Im hearing very little discussion about patients. It all seems to be about legalities and money. In fact, both sides need to have a little more patience, and think about the patients. This thing should be resolved without accusations and finger pointing. Just make sure that the one pointing is a nurse, saying, Take him into Room 2. Getting treatment should be the most important thing for all to consider.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

A t last, one of those new roads that keep popping up all over Marion County opened up Tuesday morning as a road to somewhere and an important one it is. The city of Ocala held a ceremony to unveil the sign to its new Ocala Business Park at Ocala International Airport, and with it opened Southwest 67th Avenue Road. The road now goes from State Road 40 south to Southwest 38th Street. The southern portion of the road has been in existence for some time; it is used as the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. But now reachable are a myriad of industrial sites along this road, which already has utilities available. It is a major effort to attract good, solid businesses to Ocala and Marion County, and with that, some decent jobs to help control the unemployment rate in this area. The area needs locations such as this if it is going to attract the right type of economic development. And with location, location, location being the most important thing for a lot of people, putting it within sight of the Ocala International Airport, and within a few miles of Interstate 75 with good four-lane access on State Road 40 makes the site ideal for growth in the financial area. Ocala City Council President Suzy Heinbockel put it perfectly when she said, Were paying attention; were taking advice; were trying to do the right thing. In this case, the city is doing the right thing. All of us, even those who do not live within the city limits, should hope that the project bears fruit. We all stand to benefit from more business, and more jobs, in the area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Business park road opens in Ocala Hospital: Patience and patients Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Congress is a club for exceptional people Cross Florida Barge CanalThose of you who didnt live here in Florida back in the 1960s as I did, wont remember the controversy regarding the building of the Cross Florida Barge Canal. It was a great idea at the time and still is to this day. The reasons for not building were strictly political, with little foundation. It was a pity it didnt happen. Today, its being discussed again, and its even better now. Gas prices then were about 29 cents a gallon and fuel oil on a par with gas prices. Just think, with the Canal, it could knock off close to a week for shipping to get from major ports like Baltimore, New York, Savannah, and Charleston, S.C., to get to Gulf States such as Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and yes, the western part of Florida. Not only saving time but think of the cost of shipping products to the Gulf States. Shipping by sea has been proven to be the cheapest way to ship goods. Of course cost is a factor but, that is rather insignificant. I dont believe Florida should carry all the burden of building the canal. Other states and companies that would benefit from the Canal, could well help support the project. By the way this would not only be an advantage involving shipping from American ports, but from foreign ports as well. They said the Panama Canal couldnt be built, but when the United States took over the project, we showed them what American ingenuity could do. Oh yes, did I forget to mention, jobs. Can you imagine the impact the Canal would have on the economy of not only Florida but the country? Those of you who dont remember the St. Lawrence Seaway, and the C & O Canal, should know what good they did, and have done for this country and our economy as well as for other countries as well. Apparently property acquisition is not a problem, so why dont we pressure the Legislature and the governor to get it done now, not 10 years from now. For the governor, who hasnt done much in the way of progress for Florida, it could be a feather in his cap. Speaking just for Florida, do you have any idea of the impact it would have on our economy? Wow! So, lets get those dredges going and give a big Shout Out for Florida.

A kindly person at the apartment complex suggested we call the utilities and tell them in a friendly way that our daughter could not be at her apartment on weekdays, because she would be working at the offices of Congressman Dogoody (a pseudonym). With instant courtesy the utilities performed the installation on Sunday. Doing good in Congress can be financially rewarding. Nearly half of the sitting members are millionaires, an unlikely result considering their modest $174,000 annual salaries for their full-time jobs. In all fairness, some members are millionaires because of inheritances, marriages, or successful careers in the real world. Interestingly, over the past five years, while most Americans were watching their net worth decline, the exceptional members of Congress experienced a continuing rise in their net wealth very substantial increases for some. Notwithstanding occasional examples of ethics violations, most Congress people stay within their written code of conduct. The 15 page, short form Staning bout. Now that Mitt Romney is the Republican candidate, he is acting like the election is over. Just this week he said, President Obama should start packing in the White House. He obviously has no respect for the presidential office and is totally lacking in any class. Then we had Ann Romney claim we should elect Mitt because it is his turn. That privilege only applies to the Royal Family, she may be confused, or maybe she really thinks the Romneys are royalty. John Toner Ocala Not so secret I read in the paper that the Secret Service said no sensitive equipment was in the hotel rooms of these agents. If the presidents schedule showing times and places where he is going to appear and be available is not sensitive information, then these agents and military involved do not understand the importance of their positions. To allow someone to retire before the investigation is completed is totally improper and sends the message that you can get away with anything if you can retire or resign to avoid consequences. How do we know that this recent retiree isnt one of the ring leaders and involved in these types of sex parties with the possibility of drugs being involved? We may never know who arranged the disgraceful actions of those involved in this scandal.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dards of Official Conduct of the House of Representatives can be carried in a brief case for quick reference if needed. Among other things the ethics standards cover gifts, events, travel, and conflicts of interest. They also say no one is placed at risk by seeking confidential Ethics Committee advice when in doubt a sort of a dig-safe warning to consider before digging an ethical hole. The Ethics Manual also says members should never use information received confidentially in performance of governmental duties as a means of making private profits. Why then was it necessary for CBSs 60 Minutes to uncover stock trading based on insider information which had been going on for years in the offices of Congress? Minority leader Nancy Pelosis office called the 60 Minutes expose a smear, and Speaker John Boehners office called it idiotic. How could Congressional leaders not have known about insider dealing when bills to stop trading on Congressional knowledge (Stock Act) had been introduced in three successive sessions 2006, 2007, and 2009 all of which died in committee. After two more years of foot dragging by both parties, 93 members of Congress signed on as cosponsors of what is now known as the STOCK ACT, which President Obama signed into law on April 4, 2012. Little wonder Congress has a ten percent approval rating. Some members of Congress should be term limited at the polls come November, and regularly thereafter. Too long in public service is dangerous to their ethical health. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The professionalisms of these actions show that this was a well-planned and highly aggressive action with those at the top involved. These people involved should all be put in a leave without pay status and possibly imprisoned during this investigation to show the importance of how much this means to the Secret Service and our country. I am not sure that we should even allow the Secret Service to investigate itself to come to a proper resolution. How much confidence can you have in an organization where the leaders do not know or wont admit to knowing what the secret service does on their own time. When they are on assignment in foreign countries and especially places like Colombia which is known to be the drug capital of the Americas, these agents should be on 24-hour duty with only the best of the best protecting our president. The Secret Service has let our country down. Jerry Segovis Ocala At least be honest Last week I shared that the hypocrites involved in trying to make the Martin shooting a racial issue were really attacking our Stand Your Ground Law and this has proven to be true. Facts are coming out that dispute any racial motivation in the shooting and we are getting new evidence that will influence the case. This goes to prove that we should never jump to conclusions without getting all the facts, and those who did have made themselves look extremely foolish and are exposed as the racists they are. We now have a task force that will be reviewing our Stand Your Ground Law and some have openly made it known that they want it repealed. It comes as no surprise that they are Democrats, such as Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, who has been an ardent critic of the law since its inception. Most of our citizens approve of the law and the positive effect it has in giving us the right to confront the criminals and protect our lives and property, and it has worked. Sen. Smith apparently told the panel that the Martin shooting is an example of the ambiguity of the law and mentioned the unintended consequences it has created. My question to Mr. Smith is just what other consequences have been created? This question is directed to any liberal Democrat or other critics, but please give examples for our consideration. There is no LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 question we can point to instances that property and innocent lives have been saved and such cases have been documented. I believe decent Americans are interested in protecting the victim, not the criminal. In addition to the above, I have to confess I cannot understand the thinking of liberals at all. We have a large number of liberals who want to do away with capitalism, openly support Communism, and believe in a welfare state. We have so many social programs in effect today that it will prove difficult for any politician to eliminate many of them. Too many now have their hand out and expect everyone else to support them. I wonder who these takers will vote for? I think we all know the answer to that question! Wayne Rackley Ocala Not enough time Today, Saturday, April 21, I received two bills: one from SECO with a due date of May 4 which allows 13 days for me to respond, the post office to deliver, and them to receive my payment. The second from Discover Card has a due date of May 12 which allows 21 days for the same sequence of events. More than a 50 percent increase and much more than that for the part of the sequence I can control. I have asked SECO twice why they do not give customers as much time to pay as other creditors and have not received a satisfactory response. Today, I am home and this is no problem. However, I frequently travel and it is a problem. I invite everyone who shares this feeling to let SECO know about it.

I t is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found in the mail coupons for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I finished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terrific and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goofing off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just fine, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I first walked in. I focused on the menu. Looking up from the menu what I saw shocked me to the core. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the floor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume fit quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not fit. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order finally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com A ccording to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, this week is Money Smart Week. This puzzled me for some time. After taxes, none of us have any money to be smart with. Then it dawned; we are still smarting from having to pay all that tax money. Today, Pun Alley has some smart money tales and some to smart about. Sweet notes By night three violinists played in the symphony orchestra. During the day, to make a little money on the side, they used their musical talents by roving the city streets and having impromptu concerts wherever they thought they could make some money from anyone passing by. They called themselves A Random Act Of Violins. Silent teller Young man, I want to know how much money my husband drew out of his account yesterday, demanded the woman of the teller in a bank. I cannot give you that information, said the teller firmly. But arent you the paying teller? asked the woman. Yes, that is correct, replied the young man. But Im not the telling teller. Take me to the bankA stranger in New York asked a young man the dihis nephew five dollars. Now be careful with that money, Tommy, he said. Remember the saying, A fool and his money are soon parted. Yes, Uncle, replied Tommy, but I want to thank you for parting with it, just the same. Democrat or Republican?There are hundreds of ways to make money, said a politician, but only one honest way. Whats that? asked his opponent in debate. Aha, retorted the first, I thought you wouldnt know.Creditable Jack spotted a friend one day and reminded him that he still owed a $250 loan and insisted the man pay up. The friend pulled out a checkbook and wrote a check for the full amount. Skeptical about the mans good faith, Jack went directly to the bank and presented the check for payment. The teller told him he couldnt cash the check because the friends account was $25 short. Jack went to the customers desk for a few minutes, came back to the teller, deposited $35 to the account of the friend, and then again presented the $250 check and walked out with a net gain of $215. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. rection to the Chase National Bank. Ill take you there for five dollars, replied the young fellow. When the stranger found that his guide had walked all of two blocks for $5 he paid it but said, That was an easy five for you. Yes, said the young man, but you must remember that bank directors get big fees. Dollar and sense The union workers at the Federal Mint went on strike. They are demanding to make less money. Most chiropractors keep their money in a joint account. Money isnt everything, and dont let anybody tell you it is. There are other things, such as credit cards, stocks, bonds, letters of credit, and checks. Counterfeiters earn money the old-fashioned way. They make it. Politics is the art of obtaining money from the rich and votes from the poor, on the pretext of protecting each from the other. If money doesnt grow on trees, then why do banks have branches? Men are like bank accounts. Without a lot of money, they dont generate much interest. The reason for tight money is that too many paychecks are cashed in taverns. There are more important things in life than money, but they wont go out with you if youre broke. She didnt marry him for his money, but she sure is divorcing him for it. Money still talks; but with the dollar so depreciated, it no longer talks common cents. His wife is a magician; nobody makes money disappear like her. I try to save my money. Who knows, maybe one day itll become valuable again. Many happy returnsAfter lavishing untold wealth in money, furs, cars, and jewelry on a beautiful blonde show girl, a certain old playboy finally made her his wife. That old relic, an acquaintance hooted. Do you suppose that could be a love match? Heck, no, rejoined the other. The old coot married her for his money.Parting giftUncle John came to stay, and before he left he gave Some tales in Money Smart Week P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Christs Church of Marion County Saturday, April 28: Mens Prayer Group, 9 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Sunday School, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Joy Night, 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 2: Bible Study, 7 p.m. Christs Church of Marion County is at 6768 S.W. 80th St., off State Road 200, Ocala.

His rascally old father and wayward daughter complicate matters even more as he is caught in this hilarious dilemma. Call Amelia and Ron Fiore to get seats for this trip. Photography ClubOn April 14, 20 Oak Run Photography Club members experienced one of the best field trips ever. The weather was great. The visit to Hennessey Arabian LLC farm started with the general manager, George Zbyszewski, explaining the operation to us. It is obvious that he loves his work and is very proud of it. He was interesting and very cordial. The farm is world class. They sell Arabian horses to Arabs! In fact, they sell more horses in the Mideast than in the United States. People come from all over the world to learn the breeding techniques used here. The barns are spotless, clean enough to eat in. In fact, you can rent one for special events and have it catered there. (The stalls are pressure washed before being used like this.) The owners, Frank and Carol Hennessey, have built a lovely place for the beautiful horses they love and breed. Of course the horses were the main attraction. They were beautiful, friendly, and loved our carrots. What a tour! Lunch afterward at Willistons Ivy House was delicious as always. We had a private room for our group of 20 at three tables. There was lots of conversation and getting to know one another better. It was a great day. We applauded Laurie Stamm, Walter Markowski, and Marty OGrady for great field trips this year. Unfortunately, Marty was not feeling well and was not with us. We missed him.Laurel Oaks Neighbors Night OutApril 18 seventy-four Laurel Oaks residents enjoyed Neighbors Night Out together in the Braised Onion Restaurants banquet room. They gathered at 4:30 p.m. for social time. Waiters began taking orders at 5 p.m. The room was set up for 70 people, as requested, but more than 70 showed up necessitating an additional table. Everyone said the food was delicious. The room was rocking with pleasant conversation and no one seemed to mind the extended time required to serve so many people arriving simultaneously. Nine people won door prizes. The grand prize of a Braised Onion gift certificate was won by Ed Wixon. The event was coordinated by Shelley and NC Sizemore. The attached photo shows only one of eight tables. Royal Oaks Mens GolfApril 20 saw the fog roll in early, and the first few holes were played on a misty and gloomy day. However, this didnt seem to affect the scores too much, as the golfers once again showed they could overcome the elements. The game was the usual three best net, and 36 golfers participated. The winners were: first with a 193 Dave Dawson, Frank Kelley, Sam Sample, and Bruce Drake; second with a 194 Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Wayne Feeman, and Dick Slayton; third with a 196 Bob Albright, Bill Start, Ed Simnowitz, and Paul Colatruglio. Closest to the pin were Dave Dawson, Gene Topp, and Steve Szabo (2). Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn April 16 and 19 we had our Royal Oaks Lady Niners golf championship with gross and net winners. Our gross winner was Kerry Timms, and Elsa Berbig came in second. Our net winners were Eleanor Cerlenko first, and tied in second Vange Bell, Sally Crass, Ginger Drake and Diane Dufresne. We all enjoyed the day and having great weather makes it more enjoyable. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday April 17 we played low net.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com F or the past few months, the Marion Landing Quilters have been spearheading an effort to help the Marion County Childrens Alliance. They sent out an appeal to the community for donations of soft, cuddly toys and childrens blankets which are used by the agency to give comfort to children, many of which are victims of domestic violence. On April 3, at our Tuesday Social, the Quilters presented stuffed animals and quilts to Monica Bryant, Family Violence Prevention Coordinator for Marion County Childrens Alliance. Monica was recently recognized as one who helped the Center achieve its mission to aid, comfort and empower victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Monica was recently recognized as one who helped the Center achieve its mission to aid, comfort and empower victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com A ccording to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, this week is Money Smart Week. This puzzled me for some time. After taxes, none of us have any money to be smart with. Then it dawned; we are still smarting from having to pay all that tax money. Today, Pun Alley has some smart money tales and some to smart about. Sweet notes By night three violinists played in the symphony orchestra. During the day, to make a little money on the side, they used their musical talents by roving the city streets and having impromptu concerts wherever they thought they could make some money from anyone passing by. They called themselves A Random Act Of Violins. Silent teller Young man, I want to know how much money my husband drew out of his account yesterday, demanded the woman of the teller in a bank. I cannot give you that information, said the teller firmly. But arent you the paying teller? asked the woman. Yes, that is correct, replied the young man. But Im not the telling teller. Take me to the bankA stranger in New York asked a young man the dihis nephew five dollars. Now be careful with that money, Tommy, he said. Remember the saying, A fool and his money are soon parted. Yes, Uncle, replied Tommy, but I want to thank you for parting with it, just the same. Democrat or Republican?There are hundreds of ways to make money, said a politician, but only one honest way. Whats that? asked his opponent in debate. Aha, retorted the first, I thought you wouldnt know.Creditable Jack spotted a friend one day and reminded him that he still owed a $250 loan and insisted the man pay up. The friend pulled out a checkbook and wrote a check for the full amount. Skeptical about the mans good faith, Jack went directly to the bank and presented the check for payment. The teller told him he couldnt cash the check because the friends account was $25 short. Jack went to the customers desk for a few minutes, came back to the teller, deposited $35 to the account of the friend, and then again presented the $250 check and walked out with a net gain of $215. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. rection to the Chase National Bank. Ill take you there for five dollars, replied the young fellow. When the stranger found that his guide had walked all of two blocks for $5 he paid it but said, That was an easy five for you. Yes, said the young man, but you must remember that bank directors get big fees. Dollar and sense The union workers at the Federal Mint went on strike. They are demanding to make less money. Most chiropractors keep their money in a joint account. Money isnt everything, and dont let anybody tell you it is. There are other things, such as credit cards, stocks, bonds, letters of credit, and checks. Counterfeiters earn money the old-fashioned way. They make it. Politics is the art of obtaining money from the rich and votes from the poor, on the pretext of protecting each from the other. If money doesnt grow on trees, then why do banks have branches? Men are like bank accounts. Without a lot of money, they dont generate much interest. The reason for tight money is that too many paychecks are cashed in taverns. There are more important things in life than money, but they wont go out with you if youre broke. She didnt marry him for his money, but she sure is divorcing him for it. Money still talks; but with the dollar so depreciated, it no longer talks common cents. His wife is a magician; nobody makes money disappear like her. I try to save my money. Who knows, maybe one day itll become valuable again. Many happy returnsAfter lavishing untold wealth in money, furs, cars, and jewelry on a beautiful blonde show girl, a certain old playboy finally made her his wife. That old relic, an acquaintance hooted. Do you suppose that could be a love match? Heck, no, rejoined the other. The old coot married her for his money.Parting giftUncle John came to stay, and before he left he gave Some tales in Money Smart Week P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Christs Church of Marion County Saturday, April 28: Mens Prayer Group, 9 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Sunday School, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Sunday, April 29: Joy Night, 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 2: Bible Study, 7 p.m. Christs Church of Marion County is at 6768 S.W. 80th St., off State Road 200, Ocala.

His rascally old father and wayward daughter complicate matters even more as he is caught in this hilarious dilemma. Call Amelia and Ron Fiore to get seats for this trip. Photography ClubOn April 14, 20 Oak Run Photography Club members experienced one of the best field trips ever. The weather was great. The visit to Hennessey Arabian LLC farm started with the general manager, George Zbyszewski, explaining the operation to us. It is obvious that he loves his work and is very proud of it. He was interesting and very cordial. The farm is world class. They sell Arabian horses to Arabs! In fact, they sell more horses in the Mideast than in the United States. People come from all over the world to learn the breeding techniques used here. The barns are spotless, clean enough to eat in. In fact, you can rent one for special events and have it catered there. (The stalls are pressure washed before being used like this.) The owners, Frank and Carol Hennessey, have built a lovely place for the beautiful horses they love and breed. Of course the horses were the main attraction. They were beautiful, friendly, and loved our carrots. What a tour! Lunch afterward at Willistons Ivy House was delicious as always. We had a private room for our group of 20 at three tables. There was lots of conversation and getting to know one another better. It was a great day. We applauded Laurie Stamm, Walter Markowski, and Marty OGrady for great field trips this year. Unfortunately, Marty was not feeling well and was not with us. We missed him.Laurel Oaks Neighbors Night OutApril 18 seventy-four Laurel Oaks residents enjoyed Neighbors Night Out together in the Braised Onion Restaurants banquet room. They gathered at 4:30 p.m. for social time. Waiters began taking orders at 5 p.m. The room was set up for 70 people, as requested, but more than 70 showed up necessitating an additional table. Everyone said the food was delicious. The room was rocking with pleasant conversation and no one seemed to mind the extended time required to serve so many people arriving simultaneously. Nine people won door prizes. The grand prize of a Braised Onion gift certificate was won by Ed Wixon. The event was coordinated by Shelley and NC Sizemore. The attached photo shows only one of eight tables. Royal Oaks Mens GolfApril 20 saw the fog roll in early, and the first few holes were played on a misty and gloomy day. However, this didnt seem to affect the scores too much, as the golfers once again showed they could overcome the elements. The game was the usual three best net, and 36 golfers participated. The winners were: first with a 193 Dave Dawson, Frank Kelley, Sam Sample, and Bruce Drake; second with a 194 Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Wayne Feeman, and Dick Slayton; third with a 196 Bob Albright, Bill Start, Ed Simnowitz, and Paul Colatruglio. Closest to the pin were Dave Dawson, Gene Topp, and Steve Szabo (2). Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn April 16 and 19 we had our Royal Oaks Lady Niners golf championship with gross and net winners. Our gross winner was Kerry Timms, and Elsa Berbig came in second. Our net winners were Eleanor Cerlenko first, and tied in second Vange Bell, Sally Crass, Ginger Drake and Diane Dufresne. We all enjoyed the day and having great weather makes it more enjoyable. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday April 17 we played low net. The winners were: First flight 1st place, Elsa Berbig, 2nd place tie, Lynn Houghton and Noreen Salo; second flight 1st place, Sylvia Zappia, 2nd place tie, Maureen Edwards and Beverly Lassiter; third flight st place, Ilene Simnowitz, 2nd place, Ginger Drake, 3rd place tie, Inge Szabo and Arlene Zimmerman.

I t is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found in the mail coupons for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I finished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terrific and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goofing off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just fine, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I first walked in. I focused on the menu. Looking up from the menu what I saw shocked me to the core. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the floor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume fit quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not fit. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order finally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dards of Official Conduct of the House of Representatives can be carried in a brief case for quick reference if needed. Among other things the ethics standards cover gifts, events, travel, and conflicts of interest. They also say no one is placed at risk by seeking confidential Ethics Committee advice when in doubt a sort of a dig-safe warning to consider before digging an ethical hole. The Ethics Manual also says members should never use information received confidentially in performance of governmental duties as a means of making private profits. Why then was it necessary for CBSs 60 Minutes to uncover stock trading based on insider information which had been going on for years in the offices of Congress? Minority leader Nancy Pelosis office called the 60 Minutes expose a smear, and Speaker John Boehners office called it idiotic. How could Congressional leaders not have known about insider dealing when bills to stop trading on Congressional knowledge (Stock Act) had been introduced in three successive sessions 2006, 2007, and 2009 all of which died in committee. After two more years of foot dragging by both parties, 93 members of Congress signed on as cosponsors of what is now known as the STOCK ACT, which President Obama signed into law on April 4, 2012. Little wonder Congress has a ten percent approval rating. Some members of Congress should be term limited at the polls come November, and regularly thereafter. Too long in public service is dangerous to their ethical health. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The professionalisms of these actions show that this was a well-planned and highly aggressive action with those at the top involved. These people involved should all be put in a leave without pay status and possibly imprisoned during this investigation to show the importance of how much this means to the Secret Service and our country. I am not sure that we should even allow the Secret Service to investigate itself to come to a proper resolution. How much confidence can you have in an organization where the leaders do not know or wont admit to knowing what the secret service does on their own time. When they are on assignment in foreign countries and especially places like Colombia which is known to be the drug capital of the Americas, these agents should be on 24-hour duty with only the best of the best protecting our president. The Secret Service has let our country down. Jerry Segovis Ocala At least be honest Last week I shared that the hypocrites involved in trying to make the Martin shooting a racial issue were really attacking our Stand Your Ground Law and this has proven to be true. Facts are coming out that dispute any racial motivation in the shooting and we are getting new evidence that will influence the case. This goes to prove that we should never jump to conclusions without getting all the facts, and those who did have made themselves look extremely foolish and are exposed as the racists they are. We now have a task force that will be reviewing our Stand Your Ground Law and some have openly made it known that they want it repealed. It comes as no surprise that they are Democrats, such as Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, who has been an ardent critic of the law since its inception. Most of our citizens approve of the law and the positive effect it has in giving us the right to confront the criminals and protect our lives and property, and it has worked. Sen. Smith apparently told the panel that the Martin shooting is an example of the ambiguity of the law and mentioned the unintended consequences it has created. My question to Mr. Smith is just what other consequences have been created? This question is directed to any liberal Democrat or other critics, but please give examples for our consideration. There is no LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 question we can point to instances that property and innocent lives have been saved and such cases have been documented. I believe decent Americans are interested in protecting the victim, not the criminal. In addition to the above, I have to confess I cannot understand the thinking of liberals at all. We have a large number of liberals who want to do away with capitalism, openly support Communism, and believe in a welfare state. We have so many social programs in effect today that it will prove difficult for any politician to eliminate many of them. Too many now have their hand out and expect everyone else to support them. I wonder who these takers will vote for? I think we all know the answer to that question! Wayne Rackley Ocala Not enough time Today, Saturday, April 21, I received two bills: one from SECO with a due date of May 4 which allows 13 days for me to respond, the post office to deliver, and them to receive my payment. The second from Discover Card has a due date of May 12 which allows 21 days for the same sequence of events. More than a 50 percent increase and much more than that for the part of the sequence I can control. I have asked SECO twice why they do not give customers as much time to pay as other creditors and have not received a satisfactory response. Today, I am home and this is no problem. However, I frequently travel and it is a problem. I invite everyone who shares this feeling to let SECO know about it.

Friday, April 27, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com M ost Congress people arrive in Washington with ordinary backgrounds and an agenda of noble intentions to do good for constituents and the nation. It doesnt take long however for Congress people to become exceptional. To some extent its not their fault. It may be an effect of ingesting Washington air and water. On a Saturday some years ago we delivered our daughter to Washington for her congreswww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 27, 2012 T rying to follow this controversy concerning Munroe Regional Medical Center is really challenging for those of us who are just simple folk. All these tales of leases and taxes and rankings, etc., can make us dizzy. I do know one thing. If the Munroe powers-that-be succeed in getting a new tax on the ballot in November, it hasnt got a snowballs chance in you-know-where of succeeding, especially in this economy, even if there are some who are willing to pay a little more for the success of the hospital. All of this talk to get me thinking occurred at the County Commission last week, when a couple of speakers spoke about a recent meeting they had attended concerning the hospital. One said the vote to consider the tax was taken twice and that the reconsideration and the push for the tax may have been illegal. He spoke at length about how he considered the meeting was improperly conducted, not following Roberts Rules of Order. This got me thinking back to four years ago. I had been having some breathing problems for a few days, and this particular morning woke up really struggling. Every time I exhaled, I gurgled (didnt mean to gross you out). I asked my wife to take me to get looked at, and she knew something was wrong because I let her drive. When it comes to being in the car, Im a control freak. We went to one of the neighborhood walk-in clinics near my home, where they took one look at me and called an ambulance. I was transported to Munroe (no lights or sirens, thank goodness) where I was examined and admitted. This is not to say the other hospital isnt a good one. My father was a pharmacist who worked at both hospitals, but he retired from Munroe and my mom was a longtime volunteer there, so we have just naturally been Munroe oriented. A week after I was wheeled into Munroes Emergency Department, I was walking back into my home, feeling like a new man, and within a couple of days I was back at work (at the time it was in Williston). To this day, I feel that Munroe, and the cardiologist, Dr. Ali Nasser, who was assigned to me, saved my life. I still go to that cardiologist today. My heart was at about 5 to 10 percent functioning capacity when I went in; today its normal for someone my age. All of this leads me to my reasoning in the hospital dispute. I dont care who leases it, or who owns it, I just want to make sure its there if I should need it again, or if any of my family or friends needs it. I like to think that there are a lot of people who feel that way. When theyre speeding down the road in a rescue vehicle, theyre not stopping to ask if the hospital is being supported by a tax, if its privately leased, or if putting the tax on the ballot was legal. They just want to make sure there will be doctors and nurses waiting for them when they pull in. In all this discussion, Im hearing very little discussion about patients. It all seems to be about legalities and money. In fact, both sides need to have a little more patience, and think about the patients. This thing should be resolved without accusations and finger pointing. Just make sure that the one pointing is a nurse, saying, Take him into Room 2. Getting treatment should be the most important thing for all to consider.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

A t last, one of those new roads that keep popping up all over Marion County opened up Tuesday morning as a road to somewhere and an important one it is. The city of Ocala held a ceremony to unveil the sign to its new Ocala Business Park at Ocala International Airport, and with it opened Southwest 67th Avenue Road. The road now goes from State Road 40 south to Southwest 38th Street. The southern portion of the road has been in existence for some time; it is used as the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. But now reachable are a myriad of industrial sites along this road, which already has utilities available. It is a major effort to attract good, solid businesses to Ocala and Marion County, and with that, some decent jobs to help control the unemployment rate in this area. The area needs locations such as this if it is going to attract the right type of economic development. And with location, location, location being the most important thing for a lot of people, putting it within sight of the Ocala International Airport, and within a few miles of Interstate 75 with good four-lane access on State Road 40 makes the site ideal for growth in the financial area. Ocala City Council President Suzy Heinbockel put it perfectly when she said, Were paying attention; were taking advice; were trying to do the right thing. In this case, the city is doing the right thing. All of us, even those who do not live within the city limits, should hope that the project bears fruit. We all stand to benefit from more business, and more jobs, in the area. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Business park road opens in Ocala Hospital: Patience and patients Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Congress is a club for exceptional people Cross Florida Barge CanalThose of you who didnt live here in Florida back in the 1960s as I did, wont remember the controversy regarding the building of the Cross Florida Barge Canal. It was a great idea at the time and still is to this day. The reasons for not building were strictly political, with little foundation. It was a pity it didnt happen. Today, its being discussed again, and its even better now. Gas prices then were about 29 cents a gallon and fuel oil on a par with gas prices. Just think, with the Canal, it could knock off close to a week for shipping to get from major ports like Baltimore, New York, Savannah, and Charleston, S.C., to get to Gulf States such as Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and yes, the western part of Florida. Not only saving time but think of the cost of shipping products to the Gulf States. Shipping by sea has been proven to be the cheapest way to ship goods. Of course cost is a factor but, that is rather insignificant. I dont believe Florida should carry all the burden of building the canal. Other states and companies that would benefit from the Canal, could well help support the project. By the way this would not only be an advantage involving shipping from American ports, but from foreign ports as well. They said the Panama Canal couldnt be built, but when the United States took over the project, we showed them what American ingenuity could do. Oh yes, did I forget to mention, jobs. Can you imagine the impact the Canal would have on the economy of not only Florida but the country? Those of you who dont remember the St. Lawrence Seaway, and the C & O Canal, should know what good they did, and have done for this country and our economy as well as for other countries as well. Apparently property acquisition is not a problem, so why dont we pressure the Legislature and the governor to get it done now, not 10 years from now. For the governor, who hasnt done much in the way of progress for Florida, it could be a feather in his cap. Speaking just for Florida, do you have any idea of the impact it would have on our economy? Wow! So, lets get those dredges going and give a big Shout Out for Florida.

A kindly person at the apartment complex suggested we call the utilities and tell them in a friendly way that our daughter could not be at her apartment on weekdays, because she would be working at the offices of Congressman Dogoody (a pseudonym). With instant courtesy the utilities performed the installation on Sunday. Doing good in Congress can be financially rewarding. Nearly half of the sitting members are millionaires, an unlikely result considering their modest $174,000 annual salaries for their full-time jobs. In all fairness, some members are millionaires because of inheritances, marriages, or successful careers in the real world. Interestingly, over the past five years, while most Americans were watching their net worth decline, the exceptional members of Congress experienced a continuing rise in their net wealth very substantial increases for some. Notwithstanding occasional examples of ethics violations, most Congress people stay within their written code of conduct. The 15 page, short form Staning bout. Now that Mitt Romney is the Republican candidate, he is acting like the election is over. Just this week he said, President Obama should start packing in the White House. He obviously has no respect for the presidential office and is totally lacking in any class. Then we had Ann Romney claim we should elect Mitt because it is his turn. That privilege only applies to the Royal Family, she may be confused, or maybe she really thinks the Romneys are royalty. John Toner Ocala Not so secret I read in the paper that the Secret Service said no sensitive equipment was in the hotel rooms of these agents. If the presidents schedule showing times and places where he is going to appear and be available is not sensitive information, then these agents and military involved do not understand the importance of their positions. To allow someone to retire before the investigation is completed is totally improper and sends the message that you can get away with anything if you can retire or resign to avoid consequences. How do we know that this recent retiree isnt one of the ring leaders and involved in these types of sex parties with the possibility of drugs being involved? We may never know who arranged the disgraceful actions of those involved in this scandal.

The ladies always have a good time at these functions and as this is the last one for the season, they will have to make plans for next years schedule. If you are a lady and you live in Cherrywood, call or see Geri to make your reservations for this fun group outing. Even if youve never been to one before, now would be a great time to get involved with these lovely ladies. Pool: A ball at CherrywoodOcala Palms Pool Team came to Cherrywood for a league game against our men on Tuesday the 17th. The competition was fierce in a good natured way with plenty of jokes, kibitzing and compliments. Your humble correspondent was invited to cover the games and for just plain good fun and relaxation, there are few things that can rival these outings. There is a mutual respect among the players that goes beyond just good sportsmanship. Everyone mixes fantastic shots with an occasional mulligan. Compliments abound for the good shot and laughter and banter accompany a miscue or missed easy shot. Because everyone is playing for fun and a challenge, theres no hesitancy in giving or getting good advice on how to line up a shot or leave your opponent at a disadvantage. This shared knowledge between players allows the men to not only have fun with their own team but develop camaraderie with the visiting team. Friendships are made and respect shared when the Mens Pool League plays. If you have any interest in the game of Nine Ball or Eight Ball, try coming to the pool room at the clubhouse almost any morning at 9 and give it a try. Youll be glad you did. (By the way, Cherrywood won on this day, but there are a lot of games yet to be played and a lot of fun yet to be had.) Trivia GameWednesday evening at 7 Rich Hurley fired up the big screen with questions from the 50s and 60s along with Sports. As always, there were several teams anxious to compete for the prize money, well maybe not for the money. Teams compete mainly for bragging rights and to test their knowledge in the good natured atmosphere of friends and neighbors. Rich out did him self with questions that only the writers of Sports Illustrated would know or History Professors from Harvard might have a clue about. Seriously, everyone guessed their way through and had a blast doing it. Some of the off the wall answers were funnier than the real ones and there was a lot of laughter through out the contest. All the money thats taken in, and thats a whole dollar per player, goes to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only is everyone having a good time, but they are helping a good cause. For a good time, come on out for Trivia night next month and test your skills with the rest of us. Feel free to bring snacks and beverages of your choice as well. Movie NightTuesday, May 1, is Movie Night at Cherrywood. Come get your free pop corn and lemonade or bring you own treats and drinks and watch War Horse. This action drama is a first run hit thats been a big draw at the box office. Show time is 7 p.m. to watch this great film on the big screen at the Clubhouse. Yard Sale SuccessSaturdays Cherrywood yard sale was one of the best. There was an abundance of households that took part and a wide variety of items for sale. On behalf of the residents I would like to thank all those visitors who came from all over Marion County to shop and be part of this semi-annual event. I would also like to thank Jim Clark of the Citizen for allowing us to publicize the yard sale. There were many bargains and items on sale and one of the best deals of day was found by Genevieve Downs. She found the Queen Ann dining room table; six chairs and matching hutch for a third of the price it would have cost her at any store. After making the purchase, she casually mentioned how it might be a little difficult to get it home right away. As luck would have it, another resident of Cherrywood was standing next to her and volunteered to transport it right then and there in his truck. This is yet another example of neighbor helping neighbor. Gen, who donates platelets at the blood bank, found out that the owner of the truck is on dialysis and is a recipient of platelets as part of the treatment. Its a small world and our giving and sharing touches many people we dont even know. Congratulations to Gen on her find and to all who got bargains at the yard sale.

Mel moved to Cherrywood from Mississippi 12 years ago with his wife Margie. They have been married for 41 years and have a daughter, Amanda, who lives in Columbus, Maryland. Amanda is a chemist and Margie does editorial work for a popular Florida author. Mel considers my wonderful wife and beautiful daughter among the greatest accomplishments of his life. His Sister, Priscilla still lives in Mississippi, as does his Mom, Martha. After serving at the Pentagon in U.S. Army Intelligence, Mel was hired by the Department of Defense where he worked for 30 years. He has a Bachelors of Arts Degree from the University of Mississippi and a Masters Degree from Western Maryland College. His skill and education with languages made him a natural for work with D.O.D. but because of his security classification we must let it go at that. Mel first became interested in art while working in wood shop back in his Junior High School days. He would carve animals, wooden chains, and other pieces from the scraps of wood he found. After he retired, he said to him self, If youre ever going to become good at this type of thing, you better get started, and get started he did. Mostly self taught, Mel studied under Dale Enochs in the Montoya Famous Sculpture Series in West Palm Beach. While he works in both wood and stone, he prefers working with stone. He has never gotten into painting as an art form because he confesses, I like the three dimensional medium of stone and wood. His latest piece, entitled La Venus Americane (pictured with Mel) is a beautiful carving made from a piece of Live Oak. Oddly enough, when he received the piece of wood, a gift from a co-worker, it had a peculiar natural bend in it that reminded Mel of the Venus De Milo statue. This inspired his work. Over 150 hours of labor transformed the tree limb into a beautiful sculpture. While the attention to detail is excellent, the expression on the face of the art work is the most captivating aspect of this piece. The expression of love on her face in all its aspects, from peace and serenity to sadness and melancholy is captivating. Putting emotion into a work of art is one of the hallmarks of a good artist and Mel has accomplished this with La Venus Americane. Aside from working in his garage shop, Mel works several part time jobs. Four days a week he is in a shop called Artful Gifts. The store is a satellite for Marion Cultural Alliance with its headquarters in Brick City Center for the Arts in downtown Ocala. He also serves as vice president of the Ocala Art Group and Gallery East organizations. Oddly enough, Mel also is employed by Joseph A. Banks clothiers at Heathbrook two days a week. To keep in shape, Mel runs a couple of Marathon races each year and runs daily throughout Cherrywood Estates. He has been running for 20 years and maintains a rigorous training regime. Another one of Mels works is on display in the Atrium of the New Judicial Center in downtown Ocala. Titled The American Girls, this interesting work is two women, side by side with one eye of each covered by their hair. The first girls eye is open, signifying the vigilance of the justice system and the other girls eye is closed, representing the blindness of justice. There are more subtleties to the statue but youll have to check it out for yourself. More shows are available for you to enjoy Mels artwork and he would be glad to furnish you with the dates and times. Email Mel at www.galleryeast.org or call him at 352-245-2781. Mel loves the Cherrywood community and Ocala. He enjoys the warm weather; the slow pace; the age group of people around him and, he said its like taking a step back in time. We are proud to have one of only two or three sculpture artists in the Ocala area living here. Mel and his wife Margie are truly assets to our community.From Your ReporterIf you have a person or item you would like highlighted in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@Yahoo.com.

The road now connects State Road 40 (West Silver Springs Boulevard) to Southwest 38th Street at the entrance to the Ocala Regional Sportsplex. The mostly two-lane road snakes through several curves as it opens up land for industrial development to the west of the airport. The ceremony was held in the presence of many city officials and the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors. Included in the ceremony was the placing of current day materials in a time capsule. Plans call for the capsule to be buried and then to be opened in the year 2035. City Manager Matt Brower welcomed guests to the opening of the 2.4-mile road, a $3.4 million project. The city has provided utilities along the route to encourage new industry. Brower said the goal was to bring jobs, and help grow Ocala International Airport. Suzy Heinbockel, Ocala City Council president, praised the decision to build the road and the park. Were paying attention. Were taking advice and trying to do the right thing, she said. Pete Tesch from the Ocala-Marion County Economic Development Corp., said that with the new park we can attract the right type of business. Various dignitaries were called to the podium to place items in the capsule. Some of those included were a key to the city, the mayors gold medal, a current newspaper, a photo of the council, a Can Do hat, images, drawings and design of the park, a groundbreaking picture, a new county publication that shows pictorial images, a Chamber of Commerce ribbon, pictures of planning sessions, a history of the airport with an SD card (the hope was expressed that it could still be read in 2035), a journal in which guests had written their predictions, and a business card from the company that did the sign. After the conclusion of the ceremony, several participants headed south on the new road to get a look at the features.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200. Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Dentistry From the Heart Dr. Stephen Dunn, a dentist at 9401 S.W. State Road 200, provided free fillings and extractions for the needy last Friday under the Dentistry From the Heart program. At the right, Dr. Dunn, assisted by Lisa Loman, dental assistant, fills a tooth for a patient. Below the dentist, at left, is shown with part of the crew before the crowds arrived.PHOTOS BY RON RATNER Bring your pills to Sheriffs Office this Saturday Local office will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Contractors are in the process of installing traffic monitoring cameras along State Road 200, State Road 40, U.S. Highway 27, Northwest 27th Avenue and Southwest 60th Avenue. The cameras will provide realtime information to Ocala and Marion County Transportation Management Centers. Personnel will use the information to adjust timing during unusual traffic conditions, such as when an accident causes motorists to be diverted off I-75 into Ocala. Along with the traffic monitoring cameras (which do not record), contractors are installing Dynamic Message Signs that provide directions to motorists exiting I-75 and help them maneuver through town to the appropriate interstate re-entry point. Altogether there are 17 cameras and 15 message signs that are being installed. The message signs will remain dark until needed to relay important traffic information. Installation is expected to be completed by the end of May. Funding for the $685,000 project was provided by the Florida Department of Transportation. The Citizen asked the city if these cameras would be accessible to the public on the Internet, and was told that the city did not yet have the capability to do that, but it could be put into a future budget.

Additional photo, Page 2. Ocala installing cameras for traffic, not to record Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last falls Ribathon. On Saturday, May 5 starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of baby back ribs costs $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. Last October, all of the ribs were sold and gone by 1 p.m., so it is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. Prepaid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital.

Voluntary burn ban remains in effectThe Multi-Agency Wildland Task Force met Monday to discuss local wildfire conditions and decided to continue the voluntary burn ban issued on April 12. While Marion County received some rainfall over the weekend, the area would need additional rain over an extended period of time to significantly impact current dry conditions. The drought index is currently 476 in Marion County, with some areas registering as high as 604. On the scale which has a maximum range of 800, 500 is usually the wildfire danger zone. The task force encourages residents to continue to postpone burning until conditions improve, and instead take yard debris to the Baseline Landfill or one of the countys other 17 recycling centers. Addresses and hours of operation for these recycling centers are available at http://www.marioncountyfl.org/SolidWaste/Divisions_Recycling_Collectio n.aspx. The group will continue to monitor local fire and weather conditions, and is scheduled to meet again on May 7. 000B6CB
