Shes not as sharp as she used to be very forgetful and confused. Is it just old age or Alzheimers? You dont have a clue and youre not alone. Half of all Americans know someone with Alzheimers, the deadly disease that affects five million of us more women than men. Yet just in time for Mothers Day, in a recent Senior Helpers Alzheimers Quiz taken by more than one thousand people, 67 percent or 2/3 failed (they got fewer than 60 percent of the questions correct)! Thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest providers of in-home senior care, with an office in our area, has launched Senior Gems, a free and revolutionary Alzheimers education program. It assigns each stage of the disease to a gem, like a diamond or ruby, and gives step-by-step instruction so people can navigate every mood and movement of a loved one who is coping with the disease. We have a crisis in America because Alzheimers is a deadly epidemic yet this quiz shows many people still dont know enough about the disease or how to best communicate with a loved one who has it. As our population grows older and lives longer, families will need survival skills to cope through the various stages of the disease and manage the stressful toll it takes on everyone, says Peter Ross, CEO and founder of Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home senior care companies and co-creator of the Senior Gems program. We launched Senior Gems to give caregivers and family members a hands-on guide for education and survival. Take the quiz, Page 4 How much do you know about Alzheimers?

Whether you buy or make your mother a card, get her a bouquet of flowers, box of candy or maybe a nice visit, it will be appreciated by her. Also Armed Forces day is May 19 and Memorial Day is observed on May 28.Feature for this monthSince this will be my last feature I have chosen a unique pair. They are Mandy and Nancy Dennis. Nancy Dennis was born in Nanticoke, Pa. She came to Spruce Creek North with her parents in 1989. Her dad passed away in 1996 and her mom in 2004. She remained in that home ever since. She has a daughter, Debby, in North Carolina and a son, David, in Pennsylvania. Nancy is a registered nurse and works at Ocala West United Methodist Church. After her mom passed away Nancy decided to get a puppy. She chose a Maltese who was born almost 8 years ago and was named Mandy. When she got this puppy she never realized what a treasure she had found. Mandy became a registered therapy and service dog. She travels with Nancy to Munroe Hospital, TimberRidge rehab, assisted living, Hospice, plus many private homes. So they are always together. One remarkable incident happened when they visited a man who had never spoken a word. Before the visit was over, the man spoke a few words to Mandy. Nancy has been writing some very interesting health articles for the SCN newsletter. They are very informative and the residents are enjoying them. She is one talented lady. Mandy has brought so much happiness to so many people. I am not sure who is the lucky lady, Mandy or Nancy? I think it is a little bit of both.Social UpdatesThe April Showers dance was held April 21 with entertainment by Gail. The crowd seemed to have a good time. This is the last dance until the fall. The SCN ice cream social was April 29 and looks like there was tons of ice cream. The next and last event will be the Memorial Day Picnic May 28. At this annual picnic there will be hamburgers, hot dogs, and side dishes plus beverages. Time is 12:30 and entertainment of course. Tickets are required for this picnic. They will be sold May 22 and 23 at the Clubhouse from 1 to 2 p.m. More information is on the SCN bulletin board. Thanks to Cindy Hutchins for all this news.Good-bye to SCN ladiesA memorial was held for Rose Seale who passed away last month. Also Sadie Horton passed away Easter Sunday. Sadie would have been 100 years old on May 19. Our condolences go to all their families and friends.SCN clubsSince this is my last column I would like to mention all the clubs and activities we have here in Spruce Creek North.

Please keep in mind though that if you are in a backyard that is not fenced or out walking your dog, it must be on a leash according to the Marion County Leash Ordinance. We ask that you keep your pet away from neighboring houses and lawns. We would hope that all pet owners are courteous enough to do this. A special thank you to John Delaney of Oak Run who sent me a very much appreciated letter. Thank you John! Also thanks go to Betty Testa for letting me know about Mandy and Nancy! Well folks as they say, thats all she wrote. Sorry to end writing this column and am sure I will miss it. Take care, Jan.

Chad Taylors original script Home Schooled, will be performed by West Port High Schools Thespian troupe at the Insomniac Theatre, May 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. Following the one-act play, students in West Ports acting and musical theatre programs will perform a showcase of scenes, monologues, and musical numbers. The Insomniac Theatre is in downtown Ocala at 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Tickets are $10. For reservations call 352-8970477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com. Home Schooled was written especially for the troupe by Taylor, based on ideas from students in the West Port High School theatre program. The play premiered at West Port High School in November and earned a superior rating at the District XII Thespian Festival held in Gainesville in December. Taylor, a former Thespian at Forest High School, has written numerous one act plays for Thespian troupes to perform, but this is the first time he has partnered with West Port High School. Janet Shelley, West Ports theatre director, has high praise for Taylors dramaturgical skills. Chad participated in a brain-storming session with my advanced acting students, took home a list of seemingly disjointed ideas and came back a few days later with a brilliant, thought-provoking script. The plot concerns a teenage girl named Sarah, who is home schooled by an often-times ludicrous teacher. The play leads the audience through a series of bizarre events, culminating in a final scene that leaves them trying to piece together what happened. Taylor says of the production, I had hoped to create something that would have the same level of quality that West Port has sustained over the years so I had decided to go the route of creating the most challenging piece imaginable. I was able to watch their competition performance and was amazed at the level of talent and professionalism the students brought to the stage. Its a piece that would be tough for a professional company to perform and the students made it look easy. Im proud to be a part of bringing the only original competition piece at this years festival to the stage and I look forward to seeing if this upcoming performances audience reacts to the ending as enthusiastically as the festivals crowd did. West Port troupe to perform Explore Rainbow SpringsThe UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, UF/IFAS Citrus County Extension Service and Rainbow Springs State Park will hold a Get Out and Explore Rainbow Springs event and optional canoe/kayak paddle on May 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an optional canoe/kayak paddle from 3 to 5 p.m. The event will be at Rainbow Springs State Park, 19158 S.W. 81st Place Road, Dunnellon.

On Sunday, April 29, Ocala firefighters responded to a tractor trailer fire at 1:09 p.m., and on arrival quickly extinguished the blaze. The driver of the 2007 Kenworth tractor owned by Burress L.L.C. told fire officials that he noticed smoke from the trailer and pulled over to the side of the interstate. He attempted to use his fire extinguisher; however the flames were too large and he called 911. The tractor, valued at $70,000, was separated from the trailer in an attempt to control the fire, although both were damaged. The trailer contained corn meal which was being transported from Indiana to Miami. The fire is believed to have started in the tractor and extended into the trailer. The vehicle fire also ignited a small grass fire. The incident was placed under control at 1:34 p.m., although firefighters remained on scene almost two hours. There were no injuries. The fire happened at mile marker 348, approximately two miles south of State Road 200 in the southbound lanes. For a time the Florida Highway Patrol had all three lanes blocked southbound, with one line of traffic being allowed to pass on the inside shoulder.

Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel has received some really nice comments from residents on two of our recent trips. On April 19 two buses filled with excited Oak Runners left for Washington, D.C., looking forward to the Smithsonian, the various memorials and beautiful buildings on the Mall. Everyone raved about the excellent hotels and their great breakfasts and even though the weather did not cooperate the tour guides were able to make some changes to accommodate the rain. The Marine Memorial was of special interest and did not disappoint. Comments ranged from beautiful to awe inspiring. It may be that we will have to schedule another trip to DC in the future. The day trip on April 18 to the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach was sold out. Both the Peabody and the show, In The Mood, received very high accolades. This 1940s era musical review included a number of Glen Millers greatest hits like String of Pearls and of course In The Mood. The big band music was as popular with our travelers as it was for all of America during this time in our countrys history. We had 79 travelers depart on April 26 for the much anticipated Northern European Passage Cruise on the Emerald Princess, hosted by our highly experienced hosts, Bob and Cindy Kocher. Everyone was really looking forward to the spring flowers in bloom, especially the azaleas in the Azores and the tulips in Holland.

His friends have commented on Richs leadership skills. A keen sense of humor and ready smile; are qualities that endear him to others and his confident manner inspires and motivates those around him. Richard is from East Windsor, New Jersey but moved many times between New York City and New Jersey during his career with a private company. He moved to Cherrywood in May of 2001 and has been a vital part of the community ever since. As a young man, Rich worked after graduating from High School at Singer Manufacturing Corporation and Mennen Company as a computer operator. In 1961 Uncle Sam called and Richard was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served for two years. Among his assignments was a tour at 1st Army Headquarters, Governors Island, New York. He worked in computers and made extra money moonlighting on Wall Street a couple of days per week issuing stock certificates. That came to an end when the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred. Following his discharge he went back to work for the Mennen Corporation. In 1969 he wandered into a lounge named Molly Browns and there he met his future bride, Ruth. In 1971 they married and 41 years later, they are still together; still happy and still in love. Ruth serves as secretary to the Veterans Club. They have a daughter, Susan, who lives in Mesa, Arizona. For over 17 years, Rich worked as a facilitator for a private company. He and his partner would acquire small companies that had innovative ideas or a large customer base. Over a period of time, they would consolidate these smaller companies into larger ones making them more efficient and reducing overhead. When the companies were merged, they became more attractive to investors and they would be sold or refinanced to turn a larger profit. Much of the work in this area was facilitated by Rich who enjoyed the friendship and confidence of not only his partners but his coworkers as well. He has carried these qualities over in his personal life. After working his way up in the business world, Rich took a job with Mercer County, New Jersey, as a computer coordinator. He managed and supervised several departments and people as the county converted to high tech equipment for a more efficient operation. His experience in business and his way with people made him the ideal person to perform those duties. Admittedly, Rich found working for the government a little bit more frustrating than working in the private sector. Inefficiency seems to be the hallmark of government operations and turning that around is not easy. After 10 years with the county, Rich retired. Richard serves as treasurer of the Veterans Club and is active in all of their endeavors. Ritz House is just one of the projects that Richard became active in. Putting in long hours and hard work, he helped gather food for the residents and then worked with a few others on remodeling a room to house a worthy veteran. Besides his many duties with the Veterans Club, Rich runs the mens and co-ed pool teams; hosts Trivia night along with Fred OHern; the Kentucky Derby night; and is very prominent in the Fun in the Sun Games. Just about every other function that we have in Cherrywood, Rich will either be there doing something to help out others or leading the way himself. In his spare time, which is very limited, Rich enjoys golfing, bowling and reading. He finds the people of Cherrywood fun to be around and enjoys socializing with them. If he had one wish, it would be greater participation by our residents in the vast number of opportunities that are available to everyone. When you see Rich around the Clubhouse; at Bocce Ball; on Trivia Night or any of the many other functions we have, make sure you stop by and thank him for his service to our country and to our community.

bodies of water and these storms can come at us from any direction with life threatening fury. Our Emergency Response Team is a vital part of our protection and preparedness. Among other duties, these volunteers stand ready to risk life and limb providing the Sheriffs Office with damage assessments on the ground; alerting emergency personnel of injuries; providing the power company with real time outages and in many cases, providing badly needed first aid and CPR medical attention. In addition, when communications are knocked out, the licensed ham radio operators are the necessary link to the outside world. Our CERT Team needs volunteers and more. On May 16th at 8:30 in the morning, CERT will meet in the clubhouse card room. Everyone who would like to be a part of this life saving team is urged to attend. In addition, anyone with a special need is especially urged to attend or have a representative attend for you. Special needs include persons with limited mobility that need help evacuating or maneuvering in an emergency; those who are on oxygen; those who have medications that need to be kept refrigerated and any other problem that keeps an individual from securing themselves in an emergency. CERT has forms to be filled out so that their personnel can care for those persons with needs first and foremost in any given situation. The training for our CERT team is excellent; the planning complete; and the concern for their fellow residents above and beyond the call. Support your CERT team. To be an active part of it; if you require more information on preparing for a storm; or if you have any special needs; be sure to contact Dewella Markland, the team leader or David Siegel, the Assistant Team Leader. There is no substitute for readiness; education and training. Garden ClubAt 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, the Garden Club will meet for the last time this season. The members will be touring at least three gardens in Cherrywood Estates but they will look at more if invited. If youve got a garden that you think would be of interest, contact Jay at cherrywoodgardenrs@gamail.c om or call him at 352-8970160. These gardens of interest tours give members of the club new ideas and a new appreciation for the hard work our residents put into their yards. At their last meeting the Garden Club made some changes to their organization. Each month starting in October a different person will act as chairperson and provide the agenda and program for that month. For example, Sandra Brotherhood will host the October Meeting with a trip to Sugar Tree Farms. This promises to be a great outing for all. If you have an interest in the beautiful flowers and shrubs of Florida; if you want ideas on how to make your garden more productive and beautiful or if you just want to share your love of flowers with some new Buds, (groan) the Garden Club is for you. As a footnote, there is a Master Gardners Plant Sale on May 12 at the Agricultural Center on Northeast Jacksonville Road from 8 a.m. until noon. For more information, contact Jay.Cherrywood Democratic ClubOpen meeting, Friday, May 18. All registered voters are welcome at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Refreshments will be served. This month Dr. Diana Stafford Greene, a candidate for the position of superintendent of schools, will be the guest. The current superintendent is Jim Yancey, who is not seeking re-election after nearly a decade at the helm. Dr. Greene believes that the school system is a vital part of our community. As the largest employer in the area it is major part of Marion Countys economic lifeline. An educated workforce is essential for our future and provides students with an opportunity for a strong foundation for their dreams. It is her pledge and commitment to our community to advance and prepare our young people of this great community of Marion County for the future. To accomplish these goals in these uncertain times our school district needs a common sense approach; experienced leadership and one who is able to deliver results of success. Dr. Greene we believe is the person to do the job. She invites us all to join her on this journey. Dr. Greene will be pleased to answer any questions you may have; so please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation towards their needs you may do so through our secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Voter registration cards are available, so if you know of anyone that is not registered or wishes to change party affiliation, we are able to make the changes. The Cherrywood Democratic Club meets on the third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Harriet Scarpino is president; Ken Beech vice president, 352861-8315.

There are usually major speakers, and that was true this year as President Obama spoke and joked his way through a monologue in front of the room full of journalists. The most telling moment, however, came at the end of Obamas talk. To paraphrase the presidents final joke, he said he had plenty more material, but had to cut it short to get the Secret Service home before its new curfew. That drew a big laugh from the crowd, but the camera panned to two men standing at the side, most assuredly members of the Secret Service. They werent laughing. In fact, their glare at the president could only be described as a scowl. By now, everyone should know what happened with the Secret Service. An advance team in Colombia was reportedly partying with prostitutes, and there was a dispute over payment that made the whole event public. The president wasnt there yet, and was obviously not in danger. Since then, a half dozen or so agents have been fired and rules have been tightened rules that shouldnt be needed for anyone, much less the people charged with protecting the president of the United States. If anyone thinks this was an isolated incident, well, dream on. Something like this didnt just come out of the blue, with a bunch of agents saying, Hey, lets do something weve never done before. Lets party with some girls. Another analysis over the weekend said the incident emphasizes how few women there are in the Secret Service. We havent heard the end of this tale. More accusations have already been made, tougher guidelines have already been imposed on the agents, and it is expected that more heads will roll. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, you must realize how important it is in world affairs for the president, every president, to have top-notch protection when he is out in public. If agents are dreaming about their exploits the week before, that may be hard to do. The president may joke about it, but you have to assume that underneath, hes a little apprehensive. I hope there will be better supervision of the agents in the future, and especially of the advance teams, those who arent directly involved with protection, but who are setting up safety measures.

At a time when the state university system is struggling with massive cuts, Florida Gov. Rick Scotts decision to sign a bill creating a 12th university is flawed. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been sapped from the Florida university system and now legislators and the governor are creating a new university by splitting USF Polytechnic off from the University of South Florida despite the lack of a demonstrated need or public request to do so. Departing Senate budget chairman JD Alexander has led the charge making the formation of Florida Polytechnic his primary focus. Despite broad opposition, but that hasnt stopped Alexander from wielding his enormous influence to make it happen. Members of both sides of the legislative aisle have blasted the move, calling it a wasteful power play and saying the governor has broken his promise to voters to be fiscally responsible. Initially the university will lack accreditation, which will affect enrollment as the first class of students could well graduate without an accredited degree. This decision weakens the other established state universities and specifically hurts USF as more than $70 million will be transferred to Florida Polytechnic for the construction of a new campus. This is a classic case of a powerful state politician using his influence to drive home a pet project. The creation of a new university is not in Floridas best interest and not something driven by public interest it is driven by the personal interest of one man. Gov. Scott, who campaigned as an outsider, has allowed himself to be drawn in to the insider politics of Tallahassee and, in doing so, is damaging the future of higher education in Florida. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Governor, legislators hurt higher education The not-so-secret services activities LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Away from White House?Recently we hear a lot of negative remarks regarding President Obama's frequent trips so let us look at the facts: During President Obama's first year in office, he spent 26 days away from the White House. President Regan spent 42 days away. G. H. W. bush spent 69 days away. G. Bush 2 spent a total of 147 days away from the White House in his first year. During his two terms in office he spent 477 days at Camp David plus 77 days at his Crawford Ranch In those eight years he had a total including vacation and retreats of 967 days away, which equals 32 percent of his total time in office. So to all President Obama critics, look at the facts and cut him some slack, he is working hard to drag our country out of a recession. John Toner OcalaPOW ceremonyOn April 28, the Ocala Police Department held a POW flag raising ceremony. I rolled out of bed early, donned my MCL uniform, and went to the event. I was extremely pleased there was an opening prayer. The Junior ROTC performed with snap and pop, and veterans attending were recognized. I wish to congratulate the Ocala Police Department for a distinguished and tasteful ceremony. Barbara R. Priest Ocala Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen With Mitt Romneys sweep of recent primaries, he will almost certainly be President Barack Obamas Republican opponent in November. Romney has vowed to make the economy the chief issue against Obama, and he is sure to portray the president as an enemy of free enterprise in order to draw a contrast with himself. How fit is Romneys claim to be a champion of economic freedom? The former Massachusetts governor and private-equity capitalist speaks often about free enterprise and the need for government to let entrepreneurship pull the economy out of its current doldrums. This sort of rhetoric is common for Republicans, who then proceed to violate economic freedom. President George W. Bush, in a weird Orwellian manner, took this contradiction to its final stage of absurdity when he said during the 2008 financial debacle, Ive abandoned free market principles to save the free market system. For Bush, the freemarket system apparently is not constituted by free-market principles. But if thats the case, what is the system constituted by? Republicans may not typically speak so bluntly, but to most of them the free-market system isnt a set of principles; rather it is an emotional slogan to be spoken, especially as an election approaches. Its a way of saying, Vote for us because the other guys arent good Americans like we are. Romney likes to say, We are only inches away from ceasing to be a free market economy. But that must mean we now have and have had a free-market economy. Does he really mean that? If so, does he agree with Bush that free-market principles were abandoned with the bank bailouts like TARP (which Romney favored) and the GM and Chrysler rescues? Another implication of his position is that the free market was responsible for the housing and financial debacle. Were not likely to hear Romney say this it would concede too much to Obama but its logically implied by Romneys remarks. This position diverges from what free-market advocates think happened. The essential story is this: Low-interest-rate money from the Federal Reserve, aggressive government policies to increase homeownership even among people with bad credit histories or low incomes (or both) and additional government intervention combined to create an unsustainable bubble in the housing industry, which in turn helped increase the fragility of the financial sector. Dubious mortgages became the foundation of widely held securities and derivatives, facilitated by government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a government-licensed rating cartel. Then the bubble burst. Does Romney give even a hint that he understands this? If so, he wouldnt be talking as though the free market currently exists and as though we still have it to lose. Beyond that, Romney expresses his orientation toward political economy when he says, Washington has to become an ally of business, not the opposition of business. A free-market advocate would know this doesnt exhaust the alternatives. Government should be neither an ally nor an opponent of business, because both imply interference with private property and free exchange. This may be harder to see in the case of a business-government alliance. One need only remember that we live in a world of scarcity. If government helps one industry or firm, it must do so by channeling scarce resources away from other uses. This disables the process by which entrepreneurs attempt to devote resources to purposes most favored by consumers. Its a form of government privilege, which many businessmen are all too happy to receive at the expense of others. There is a world of difference between being promarket and being pro-business a distinction that apparently escapes Romney.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Of course, Obama could honestly say he agrees with Romneys statement about business and government. He too believes government should be businesss ally. Just ask Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric, who chairs his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, and Jim McNerney of Boeing (and formerly of GE), who chairs the Presidents Export Council. Romney and Obamas differences over the precise mix of government and business decisionmaking power should not fool anyone into thinking they have a fundamental disagreement. Once again, the presidential election will present an echo, not a choice.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Through the years, I have discovered two important facets of husbandship that has stood me in good stead for many years: a vigorous nod of the head and a rhapsodic Yes, dear. Flowers dont hurt either. When our recent visit in Ohio concluded, we headed for the airport. I do not mind traveling, but my least favorite mode is the airplane. The reason being, of course, is the airport itself. In my opinion, someone devised the modern airport to intimidate the average traveler. Arriving at the airport, we immediately headed for the ticket counter where we received our boarding passes. Then we surrendered our luggage to the personnel behind the counter, not knowing if we would ever see that same luggage again in our lifetime. Someday I hope to visit all the places my luggage has seen. Next, we made our way through the security booth. As you know, they do not permit metal through this gate. If a passenger passes through and a buzzer goes off, he is summoned back for guards to examine his personal effects to detect the offensive object. I went through about 17 times. Not until I got down to my underwear did the security personnel determine there must be a defect in the radar detection equipment. (I plan to file my briefs in a Florida court this week.) Finally, we left the security area and I started feeling a little more confident until we came to a big sign over the entryway. My wife and I found little comfort in the words written: Terminal Entrance. Contrary to their friendly little sign, I did, in fact have plans of returning. Our flight plan called for a two hour stopover before arriving at our final destination. Nothing quite compares to spending a free hour or two at an airport. Did I say free? Allow me to recount that opinion. There is absolutely nothing free at an airport. I cannot prove it, but I am sure they have figured out a way to charge for the air we breathe. For instance, a 15 cent cup of coffee can cost in the neighborhood of $17.95. I dont even like visiting that neighborhood. If I lived there, I would move. However, being the good natured, charming individual that I am, it does not take much to make me happy. All I need to allay any stress is a simple cup of coffee. Have you ever noticed how things seem to go a lot easier with a steaming jolt of java? With a full hour to spare at the airport, my wife and I looked for something to occupy our time. Then I espied the perfect diversion. With a mischievous twinkle in my left eye, I looked at my wife and said, Lets get a cup of coffee and relax a while. One thing I can always count on my wife, she knows a good thing when she hears it. Unfortunately, she does not hear it too often from my lips. Walking over to the coffee shop and, being the man, I approached the counter to place our order. I would like two regular coffees, I said with anticipation to the young woman behind the counter. The thing that makes a man a man is that he always knows what he wants. It is that confidence that separates the men from the boys. The young woman looked at me, snapped her chewing gum several times and said in a monotone, Marvelous, you want espresso or cappuccino? No, Miss, I replied as cool and sophisticated as any gentleman you will ever meet. No, Miss. We just want two plain coffees. She looked at me as only a waitress behind a counter can and rattled off names I have never heard before. As best I could understand, they were flavors or kinds of espresso coffee. Finally, when she took a Knowing what you want just a plain cup of coffee, please! OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder breath I jumped in and said with all the confidence I could muster without compromising my good nature, No, Miss. I dont want any espresso, just a regular cup of coffee. Exactly, she said with a falsetto smile. Most people enjoy our cappuccinos. What kind of cappuccino would you like. Then she rattled off an endless list of cappuccino flavors, most I had never heard of before. About this time, the caffeine deficiency began seeping into my attitude. I think that somewhere in our constitution is the right to order regular coffee at a price that does not compromise the mortgage on my home. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible under the circumstances, listen to me very carefully. I want coffee. Not espresso. Not cappuccino. Just two cups of plain, regular, good old American coffee. Oh, she said in a burst of enlightenment. You want coffee. Why didnt you say so in the first place? There is no satisfaction more fulfilling than finally getting through and arriving at a common understanding. Now, she said in a confidential tone, what flavor coffee do you want? Columbian, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Swiss Mocha . There is only one place I know where I can get exactly what I need. Jesus put it this way; And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13 14 KJV). If you need anything from the Lord, just ask. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Today is International Firefighters Day, a time for everyone to recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure their communities and environment are as safe as possible. Its also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their services. Todays column is dedicated to all of them. Hopefully, they will not be put out by it, but will have some laughs.Doggone!In the old days before motor vehicles, a fire wagon was pulled by a team of horses, followed by men running as fast as possible. The sole occupant of the fire wagon was a dog, always a tan mutt with a shape resembling an Irish setter with a buzz cut. The dog was there to steer the wagon, for the horses wouldnt listen to calls from the brigade men, but the dog would hear the call and tug he reins this way and that. It worked so well that fire wagons everywhere had a tan shorthaired setter steering them. One day the mayor of a town wanted to know why such a plain looking dog was driving their fire wagon. What do you mean plain looking? asked the Fire Chief. I mean, replied the mayor, that Ive had reports from all over the country regarding fire wagons. And the reports everywhere state that a dogs been spotted driving the wagon. And thats how Dalmatians become the dog for all fire trucks.Holy Smoke!The convert always put the oldest nuns on the highest floor, figuring that they were closer to heaven that way. Six of these nuns were in their third-floor sleeping quarters when a fire broke out one night. The nuns quickly took off their outfits, tied them together to make a rope, and climbed out of the window After they were safely on the ground and out of the building, a fireman came over to one of the nuns and asked her, Werent you afraid that the habits might have ripped or broke since, they are so old? The nun smiled and replied, Oh, no, dear, we werent worried at all. Dont you know old habits are hard to break?Small firesWhen a 2-seat private plane crashed into a cemetery in Kentucky the firemen reported recovering over 150 bodies and were still digging. Firefighters use hot line phones. The best way to calm a fire-breathing dragon is to throw water on it. This is sure to cause it to let off some steam. A kaleidoscope is a device for watching automobile accidents. In firefighting terms, CHAOS means the Chiefs Have Arrived On Scene. Old firefighters never die; they just go to blazes. In Dallas a warehouse full of energy drinks caught fire. Firefighters say the fire raged for five hours and then totally crashed. Yesterday I went to a fire sale. What did you get? A smoking jacket and a blazer.The golferAfter a poor golf game, the golfer was walking to the parking lot to get his car when a policeman stopped him and asked, Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago? Yes, the golfer responded. Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course? Yes, I did. How did you know? he asked. Well, said the policeman, Your ball flew out onto the highway and crashed through a drivers windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck. The fire truck couldnt make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it? The golfer thought it over carefully and responded, I think Ill close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb.Pin PullerWhen the restaurant employees attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire official demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher. Pull the pin like a hand grenade, he explained, then depress the trigger to release the foam. Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in the parking lot. In her nervousness, she forgot to pull the pin. The instructor hinted, Like a hand grenade, remember? In a burst of confidence she pulled the pin and hurled the extinguisher at the blaze.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Master the Possibilities is a very cool alternative during a hot summer!Softball LeagueIts been an exciting season with unexpected results. Over a month ago, the Great Clips Team seemed to have it all wrapped up with a five-game lead over their closest rival. Things began happening and losses started piling up and their lead dropped to one game. They still had a chance to hold on, but they just couldnt seem to get that big push from the players. The lead dwindled so much that they found themselves in second place with six games to go. Luck seemed to turn around for them, as the Florida Eye team who had jumped into first place by two games, started to have difficulty winning games. Last week, with two games to go, The Great Clips Team began their fight to the top. Thanks to other teams, Florida Eye began losing its lead. Now with one game to go, the Florida Eye and Great Clips teams are tied for first place. This Monday will be the deciding game, and the winner will be the OTOW Softball League Champs. Not far behind was the Dr. Dunn team which hit some rough spots and couldnt get closer than two games from the top .In fourth place, we had the Cebert Wealth team which had a terrible start at the beginning of the league season and were in last place for quite a while until they started putting some wins together and ended up only four games out of first place. The surprising team was the Tee Pee Tire Team, which with their young players, were expected to end up on the top of the league. Somehow, they just couldnt get it together and ended up tied for the basement with the Wise Way Team, which also just couldnt muster up the wins.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY MICHEL NORTHSEA Staff WriterTen years ago, the late Ed McCracken wanted his wife, Irene, to buy one of the beautifully painted horses, but the prices went too high. This year when the horses from the Horse Fever II went on the auction block at Live Oak Plantation, Irene McCracken was once again among the attendees. My goal was to have a painted horse because it is out of the ordinary. And no other place has something of this nature, she said. A friend of hers, Leo Kriziza, knowing of her dream, encouraged her to purchase a horse. He told me to be sure to pick out a pretty one, she recalled. So Irene McCracken chose to bid on World Champ painted by Sharon Crute. Sponsored by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, Crute said the goal illustrated the importance of thoroughbred industry in Florida. One side of the horse shows beautiful farms in Marion County to depict the breeding aspect of the industry. The other side shows the three horses, all bred in Florida, that were the Eclipse Award winner; Awesome Feather, Big Drama and Dubai Majesty. Above the horses are flags representing the United States, Florida, South Korea and Ocalas sister cities in Ireland and Italy. The South Korea flag represents the business relationship involving the sale of Florida-bred horses to the South Korean racing program, Crute said in her artist statement. McCracken paid $12,600 for World Champ. World Champ brought in the second highest dollar figure for the Marion County Cultural Alliance of any horse on the auction block. Clockwork Fury, by artist Mark Hershberger, earned the top figure of $13,000 for the evening. Thirty horses were sold to raise $208,500 for $7,000 each, the average cost of a horse. Proceeds from the evening went to the Marion Cultural Alliance, $92,000, with the rest of the money contributed to the buyers favorite charity. Once she realized that she indeed owned the horse, McCracken was left to ponder on what to do with the horse. I thought about bringing it out here but not enough people would see out here in On Top of the World. I wanted lots of people to see it, she said. So she ended up gifting the horse to the City of Ocala and now World Champ graces the downtown square looking across the street to Harrys outdoor dining area. Local woman buys painted horse, gives it to city for display PHOTO COURTESY OF TAMMYPORTRAITART.COMIrene McCracken stands with her horse on the Ocala Downtown Square. CELEBRITY IN DEATH By J. D. RobbThe best that can be said about this whodunit from J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is its promising start. Lt. Eve Dallas and Det. Delia Peabody are invited to spend quality time at a Hollywood party with actresses playing them in a new movie based on journalist Nadine Fursts book about a famous case Eve solved. Although Peabody is nearly giddy over the prospect, sensible Eve is more likely to roll her eyes: But she has to admit its a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her longlost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the directors luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K. T. had made an embarrassing scene during diner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now shes at the center of a crime scene and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop. But doubling cops and actresses plus an entire production staff and media personnel has its drawbacks. Within 50 pages or so I was drowning in characters. Soon, however, I was sympathizing with Dallas and the slow torment of finding the killer of a woman who had only enemies, a platoon of people shes threatened, blackmailed, insulted or wronged in a dozen different ways. Interviewing all the party people from guests to servants to caterers takes up a significant part of the novel and not a particularly interesting one. In fact, the story line is stalled until lucky hunches and slips of the tongue start producing results. Digging deeply into a suspects background turns up surprising clues. From then on Eve leans on accomplices and induces one to wear a wire. Set in the early 2020s the futuristic touch adds little that I can see. I was scarcely aware of it except for references to household droids. Still, through 30 books involving Dallas and Peabody Robb has amassed plenty of fans. If you are one of them, youll probably like Celebrity in Death. Drowning in characters BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington 000B80C Mon.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY MICHEL NORTHSEA Staff WriterTen years ago, the late Ed McCracken wanted his wife, Irene, to buy one of the beautifully painted horses, but the prices went too high. This year when the horses from the Horse Fever II went on the auction block at Live Oak Plantation, Irene McCracken was once again among the attendees. My goal was to have a painted horse because it is out of the ordinary. And no other place has something of this nature, she said. A friend of hers, Leo Kriziza, knowing of her dream, encouraged her to purchase a horse. He told me to be sure to pick out a pretty one, she recalled. So Irene McCracken chose to bid on World Champ painted by Sharon Crute. Sponsored by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, Crute said the goal illustrated the importance of thoroughbred industry in Florida. One side of the horse shows beautiful farms in Marion County to depict the breeding aspect of the industry. The other side shows the three horses, all bred in Florida, that were the Eclipse Award winner; Awesome Feather, Big Drama and Dubai Majesty. Above the horses are flags representing the United States, Florida, South Korea and Ocalas sister cities in Ireland and Italy. The South Korea flag represents the business relationship involving the sale of Florida-bred horses to the South Korean racing program, Crute said in her artist statement. McCracken paid $12,600 for World Champ. World Champ brought in the second highest dollar figure for the Marion County Cultural Alliance of any horse on the auction block. Clockwork Fury, by artist Mark Hershberger, earned the top figure of $13,000 for the evening. Thirty horses were sold to raise $208,500 for $7,000 each, the average cost of a horse. Proceeds from the evening went to the Marion Cultural Alliance, $92,000, with the rest of the money contributed to the buyers favorite charity. Once she realized that she indeed owned the horse, McCracken was left to ponder on what to do with the horse. I thought about bringing it out here but not enough people would see out here in On Top of the World. I wanted lots of people to see it, she said. So she ended up gifting the horse to the City of Ocala and now World Champ graces the downtown square looking across the street to Harrys outdoor dining area. Local woman buys painted horse, gives it to city for display PHOTO COURTESY OF TAMMYPORTRAITART.COMIrene McCracken stands with her horse on the Ocala Downtown Square. CELEBRITY IN DEATH By J. D. RobbThe best that can be said about this whodunit from J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is its promising start. Lt. Eve Dallas and Det. Delia Peabody are invited to spend quality time at a Hollywood party with actresses playing them in a new movie based on journalist Nadine Fursts book about a famous case Eve solved. Although Peabody is nearly giddy over the prospect, sensible Eve is more likely to roll her eyes: But she has to admit its a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her longlost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the directors luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K. T. had made an embarrassing scene during diner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now shes at the center of a crime scene and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop. But doubling cops and actresses plus an entire production staff and media personnel has its drawbacks. Within 50 pages or so I was drowning in characters. Soon, however, I was sympathizing with Dallas and the slow torment of finding the killer of a woman who had only enemies, a platoon of people shes threatened, blackmailed, insulted or wronged in a dozen different ways. Interviewing all the party people from guests to servants to caterers takes up a significant part of the novel and not a particularly interesting one. In fact, the story line is stalled until lucky hunches and slips of the tongue start producing results. Digging deeply into a suspects background turns up surprising clues. From then on Eve leans on accomplices and induces one to wear a wire. Set in the early 2020s the futuristic touch adds little that I can see. I was scarcely aware of it except for references to household droids. Still, through 30 books involving Dallas and Peabody Robb has amassed plenty of fans. If you are one of them, youll probably like Celebrity in Death. Drowning in characters BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington 000B80C Mon.

Master the Possibilities is a very cool alternative during a hot summer!Softball LeagueIts been an exciting season with unexpected results. Over a month ago, the Great Clips Team seemed to have it all wrapped up with a five-game lead over their closest rival. Things began happening and losses started piling up and their lead dropped to one game. They still had a chance to hold on, but they just couldnt seem to get that big push from the players. The lead dwindled so much that they found themselves in second place with six games to go. Luck seemed to turn around for them, as the Florida Eye team who had jumped into first place by two games, started to have difficulty winning games. Last week, with two games to go, The Great Clips Team began their fight to the top. Thanks to other teams, Florida Eye began losing its lead. Now with one game to go, the Florida Eye and Great Clips teams are tied for first place. This Monday will be the deciding game, and the winner will be the OTOW Softball League Champs. Not far behind was the Dr. Dunn team which hit some rough spots and couldnt get closer than two games from the top .In fourth place, we had the Cebert Wealth team which had a terrible start at the beginning of the league season and were in last place for quite a while until they started putting some wins together and ended up only four games out of first place. The surprising team was the Tee Pee Tire Team, which with their young players, were expected to end up on the top of the league. Somehow, they just couldnt get it together and ended up tied for the basement with the Wise Way Team, which also just couldnt muster up the wins.

Today is International Firefighters Day, a time for everyone to recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure their communities and environment are as safe as possible. Its also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their services. Todays column is dedicated to all of them. Hopefully, they will not be put out by it, but will have some laughs.Doggone!In the old days before motor vehicles, a fire wagon was pulled by a team of horses, followed by men running as fast as possible. The sole occupant of the fire wagon was a dog, always a tan mutt with a shape resembling an Irish setter with a buzz cut. The dog was there to steer the wagon, for the horses wouldnt listen to calls from the brigade men, but the dog would hear the call and tug he reins this way and that. It worked so well that fire wagons everywhere had a tan shorthaired setter steering them. One day the mayor of a town wanted to know why such a plain looking dog was driving their fire wagon. What do you mean plain looking? asked the Fire Chief. I mean, replied the mayor, that Ive had reports from all over the country regarding fire wagons. And the reports everywhere state that a dogs been spotted driving the wagon. And thats how Dalmatians become the dog for all fire trucks.Holy Smoke!The convert always put the oldest nuns on the highest floor, figuring that they were closer to heaven that way. Six of these nuns were in their third-floor sleeping quarters when a fire broke out one night. The nuns quickly took off their outfits, tied them together to make a rope, and climbed out of the window After they were safely on the ground and out of the building, a fireman came over to one of the nuns and asked her, Werent you afraid that the habits might have ripped or broke since, they are so old? The nun smiled and replied, Oh, no, dear, we werent worried at all. Dont you know old habits are hard to break?Small firesWhen a 2-seat private plane crashed into a cemetery in Kentucky the firemen reported recovering over 150 bodies and were still digging. Firefighters use hot line phones. The best way to calm a fire-breathing dragon is to throw water on it. This is sure to cause it to let off some steam. A kaleidoscope is a device for watching automobile accidents. In firefighting terms, CHAOS means the Chiefs Have Arrived On Scene. Old firefighters never die; they just go to blazes. In Dallas a warehouse full of energy drinks caught fire. Firefighters say the fire raged for five hours and then totally crashed. Yesterday I went to a fire sale. What did you get? A smoking jacket and a blazer.The golferAfter a poor golf game, the golfer was walking to the parking lot to get his car when a policeman stopped him and asked, Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago? Yes, the golfer responded. Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course? Yes, I did. How did you know? he asked. Well, said the policeman, Your ball flew out onto the highway and crashed through a drivers windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck. The fire truck couldnt make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it? The golfer thought it over carefully and responded, I think Ill close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb.Pin PullerWhen the restaurant employees attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire official demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher. Pull the pin like a hand grenade, he explained, then depress the trigger to release the foam. Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in the parking lot. In her nervousness, she forgot to pull the pin. The instructor hinted, Like a hand grenade, remember? In a burst of confidence she pulled the pin and hurled the extinguisher at the blaze.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

On Wednesday, April 25, the group formally became a club, setting their meeting dates as the first and third Fridays of every month.

On the first Friday, they will take a field trip and on the third Friday, review the photos, have guest speakers or share technical information that will help members not only take pictures but make pictures. The members would like to thank Nancy Frost who came to Cherrywood on Friday, April 13, to give helpful hints on how to organize and go forward with our club. Nancy is a part of the Oak Run Camera Club and her assistance was greatly appreciated. If you would like more information concerning this new club, email Gen at gdowns99@gmail.com.

Ladies Luncheon at LogansLogans Steak House is the place to be on Wednesday May 9 as the Ladies Luncheon closes out its season with a farewell to the snowbirds and the sharing of some special memories of luncheons past. The ladies will be at Logans Steak House from noon until about 1:30 where the food is delicious and the conversation stimulating. All of our lovely ladies of Cherrywood are invited to attend this great outing so contact Geri at the office to get information on reservations; transportation and any other questions you might have. Having been a guest at a couple of these luncheons, I can vouch for the fact that its a good time; with good people and of course, good food. Dont miss out. Memorial Day On Wednesday, May 30 beginning at noon, the Veterans Club will hold its Memorial Day Observance to honor the memory of Americas fallen heroes. The National Anthem will be followed by the presentation of the Armed Forces flags by our own Honor Guard. A short speech will follow given by Major Morrey Dean, USA (Ret.) A good old American picnic will follow the service with hot dogs; hamburgers; homemade beans; potato salad and potluck desserts. Lemonade and coffee will be available of course, but everyone is welcome to bring their own beverages. Tickets are only $7 each and include the food and dancing to the music of Rich Becotte all afternoon. You can get your tickets from Geri or from any officer of the Veterans Club. At 2 p.m., the drawing takes place for the Bahamas Cruise. Tickets for the Cruise are only $10 each or three for $20. The winner will get a three day cruise for two on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line including all port taxes; gratuities; and $100 spending money. Raffle Tickets will be available right up until the drawing so take advantage of this chance to win. You need not be present to be a winner and you dont have to be a resident of Cherrywood either. Proceeds go to support the Veterans Club Charities. Please note that nonCherrywood residents are invited to share this service and the picnic that follows. Tickets are available at the clubhouse office between 9 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. Everyone is urged to come out and pay their respects to those who gave their all for this great country. CERT: For EmergenciesCherrywoods Emergency Response Team is your life line now that Hurricane Season is drawing near. In 2004 Florida was hit directly by three separate major hurricanes and this year, because of the warm temperatures and the waters of the Gulf and Atlantic being more heated, could be a repeat of that. Many Ocala residents feel that since we live in the middle of the state away from tidal surges and the coast that we are safe from the damages and life threatening emergencies that these storms bring.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Of course, Obama could honestly say he agrees with Romneys statement about business and government. He too believes government should be businesss ally. Just ask Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric, who chairs his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, and Jim McNerney of Boeing (and formerly of GE), who chairs the Presidents Export Council. Romney and Obamas differences over the precise mix of government and business decisionmaking power should not fool anyone into thinking they have a fundamental disagreement. Once again, the presidential election will present an echo, not a choice.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Through the years, I have discovered two important facets of husbandship that has stood me in good stead for many years: a vigorous nod of the head and a rhapsodic Yes, dear. Flowers dont hurt either. When our recent visit in Ohio concluded, we headed for the airport. I do not mind traveling, but my least favorite mode is the airplane. The reason being, of course, is the airport itself. In my opinion, someone devised the modern airport to intimidate the average traveler. Arriving at the airport, we immediately headed for the ticket counter where we received our boarding passes. Then we surrendered our luggage to the personnel behind the counter, not knowing if we would ever see that same luggage again in our lifetime. Someday I hope to visit all the places my luggage has seen. Next, we made our way through the security booth. As you know, they do not permit metal through this gate. If a passenger passes through and a buzzer goes off, he is summoned back for guards to examine his personal effects to detect the offensive object. I went through about 17 times. Not until I got down to my underwear did the security personnel determine there must be a defect in the radar detection equipment. (I plan to file my briefs in a Florida court this week.) Finally, we left the security area and I started feeling a little more confident until we came to a big sign over the entryway. My wife and I found little comfort in the words written: Terminal Entrance. Contrary to their friendly little sign, I did, in fact have plans of returning. Our flight plan called for a two hour stopover before arriving at our final destination. Nothing quite compares to spending a free hour or two at an airport. Did I say free? Allow me to recount that opinion. There is absolutely nothing free at an airport. I cannot prove it, but I am sure they have figured out a way to charge for the air we breathe. For instance, a 15 cent cup of coffee can cost in the neighborhood of $17.95. I dont even like visiting that neighborhood. If I lived there, I would move. However, being the good natured, charming individual that I am, it does not take much to make me happy. All I need to allay any stress is a simple cup of coffee. Have you ever noticed how things seem to go a lot easier with a steaming jolt of java? With a full hour to spare at the airport, my wife and I looked for something to occupy our time. Then I espied the perfect diversion. With a mischievous twinkle in my left eye, I looked at my wife and said, Lets get a cup of coffee and relax a while. One thing I can always count on my wife, she knows a good thing when she hears it. Unfortunately, she does not hear it too often from my lips. Walking over to the coffee shop and, being the man, I approached the counter to place our order. I would like two regular coffees, I said with anticipation to the young woman behind the counter. The thing that makes a man a man is that he always knows what he wants. It is that confidence that separates the men from the boys. The young woman looked at me, snapped her chewing gum several times and said in a monotone, Marvelous, you want espresso or cappuccino? No, Miss, I replied as cool and sophisticated as any gentleman you will ever meet. No, Miss. We just want two plain coffees. She looked at me as only a waitress behind a counter can and rattled off names I have never heard before. As best I could understand, they were flavors or kinds of espresso coffee. Finally, when she took a Knowing what you want just a plain cup of coffee, please! OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder breath I jumped in and said with all the confidence I could muster without compromising my good nature, No, Miss. I dont want any espresso, just a regular cup of coffee. Exactly, she said with a falsetto smile. Most people enjoy our cappuccinos. What kind of cappuccino would you like. Then she rattled off an endless list of cappuccino flavors, most I had never heard of before. About this time, the caffeine deficiency began seeping into my attitude. I think that somewhere in our constitution is the right to order regular coffee at a price that does not compromise the mortgage on my home. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible under the circumstances, listen to me very carefully. I want coffee. Not espresso. Not cappuccino. Just two cups of plain, regular, good old American coffee. Oh, she said in a burst of enlightenment. You want coffee. Why didnt you say so in the first place? There is no satisfaction more fulfilling than finally getting through and arriving at a common understanding. Now, she said in a confidential tone, what flavor coffee do you want? Columbian, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Swiss Mocha . There is only one place I know where I can get exactly what I need. Jesus put it this way; And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13 14 KJV). If you need anything from the Lord, just ask. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

RSVP appreciated. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The often skeptical Aries might find that an answer to a question is hard to believe. But check it out before you chuck it out. You might well be surprised at what you could learn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your resolute determination to stick by a position might make some people uncomfortable. But if youre proved right (as I expect you to be), a lot of changes will tilt in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel conflicted between what you want to do and what you should do. Best advice: Honor your obligations first. Then go ahead and enjoy your well-earned rewards. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That financial matter still needs to be sorted out before you can consider any major monetary moves. Pressures ease midweek, with news about a potential career change. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A workplace problem threatens to derail your wellplanned project. But your quick mind should lead you to a solution and get you back on track without too much delay. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An opportunity opens up but could quickly close down if you allow pessimism to override enthusiasm. A trusted friend can offer the encouragement you need. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Youve come through a difficult period of helping others deal with their problems. Now you can concentrate on putting your energy to work on your own projects. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Forget about whos to blame and, instead, make the first move toward patching up a misunderstanding before it creates a rift that youll never be able to cross. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Good news for the travel-loving Sagittarian who enjoys galloping off to new places: That trip you put off will soon be back on your schedule. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A mood change could make the gregarious Goat seek the company of just a few friends. But you charge back into the crowd for weekend fun and games. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A decision you made in good faith could come under fire. Best advice: Open your mind to other possibilities by listening to your challengers point of view. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can avoid being swamped by all those tasks dangling from your line this week by tackling them one by one, according to priority. The weekend brings good news.

bodies of water and these storms can come at us from any direction with life threatening fury. Our Emergency Response Team is a vital part of our protection and preparedness. Among other duties, these volunteers stand ready to risk life and limb providing the Sheriffs Office with damage assessments on the ground; alerting emergency personnel of injuries; providing the power company with real time outages and in many cases, providing badly needed first aid and CPR medical attention. In addition, when communications are knocked out, the licensed ham radio operators are the necessary link to the outside world. Our CERT Team needs volunteers and more. On May 16th at 8:30 in the morning, CERT will meet in the clubhouse card room. Everyone who would like to be a part of this life saving team is urged to attend. In addition, anyone with a special need is especially urged to attend or have a representative attend for you. Special needs include persons with limited mobility that need help evacuating or maneuvering in an emergency; those who are on oxygen; those who have medications that need to be kept refrigerated and any other problem that keeps an individual from securing themselves in an emergency. CERT has forms to be filled out so that their personnel can care for those persons with needs first and foremost in any given situation. The training for our CERT team is excellent; the planning complete; and the concern for their fellow residents above and beyond the call. Support your CERT team. To be an active part of it; if you require more information on preparing for a storm; or if you have any special needs; be sure to contact Dewella Markland, the team leader or David Siegel, the Assistant Team Leader. There is no substitute for readiness; education and training. Garden ClubAt 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, the Garden Club will meet for the last time this season. The members will be touring at least three gardens in Cherrywood Estates but they will look at more if invited. If youve got a garden that you think would be of interest, contact Jay at cherrywoodgardenrs@gamail.c om or call him at 352-8970160. These gardens of interest tours give members of the club new ideas and a new appreciation for the hard work our residents put into their yards. At their last meeting the Garden Club made some changes to their organization. Each month starting in October a different person will act as chairperson and provide the agenda and program for that month. For example, Sandra Brotherhood will host the October Meeting with a trip to Sugar Tree Farms. This promises to be a great outing for all. If you have an interest in the beautiful flowers and shrubs of Florida; if you want ideas on how to make your garden more productive and beautiful or if you just want to share your love of flowers with some new Buds, (groan) the Garden Club is for you. As a footnote, there is a Master Gardners Plant Sale on May 12 at the Agricultural Center on Northeast Jacksonville Road from 8 a.m. until noon. For more information, contact Jay.Cherrywood Democratic ClubOpen meeting, Friday, May 18. All registered voters are welcome at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Refreshments will be served. This month Dr. Diana Stafford Greene, a candidate for the position of superintendent of schools, will be the guest. The current superintendent is Jim Yancey, who is not seeking re-election after nearly a decade at the helm. Dr. Greene believes that the school system is a vital part of our community. As the largest employer in the area it is major part of Marion Countys economic lifeline. An educated workforce is essential for our future and provides students with an opportunity for a strong foundation for their dreams. It is her pledge and commitment to our community to advance and prepare our young people of this great community of Marion County for the future. To accomplish these goals in these uncertain times our school district needs a common sense approach; experienced leadership and one who is able to deliver results of success. Dr. Greene we believe is the person to do the job. She invites us all to join her on this journey. Dr. Greene will be pleased to answer any questions you may have; so please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation towards their needs you may do so through our secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Voter registration cards are available, so if you know of anyone that is not registered or wishes to change party affiliation, we are able to make the changes. The Cherrywood Democratic Club meets on the third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Harriet Scarpino is president; Ken Beech vice president, 352861-8315.

There are usually major speakers, and that was true this year as President Obama spoke and joked his way through a monologue in front of the room full of journalists. The most telling moment, however, came at the end of Obamas talk. To paraphrase the presidents final joke, he said he had plenty more material, but had to cut it short to get the Secret Service home before its new curfew. That drew a big laugh from the crowd, but the camera panned to two men standing at the side, most assuredly members of the Secret Service. They werent laughing. In fact, their glare at the president could only be described as a scowl. By now, everyone should know what happened with the Secret Service. An advance team in Colombia was reportedly partying with prostitutes, and there was a dispute over payment that made the whole event public. The president wasnt there yet, and was obviously not in danger. Since then, a half dozen or so agents have been fired and rules have been tightened rules that shouldnt be needed for anyone, much less the people charged with protecting the president of the United States. If anyone thinks this was an isolated incident, well, dream on. Something like this didnt just come out of the blue, with a bunch of agents saying, Hey, lets do something weve never done before. Lets party with some girls. Another analysis over the weekend said the incident emphasizes how few women there are in the Secret Service. We havent heard the end of this tale. More accusations have already been made, tougher guidelines have already been imposed on the agents, and it is expected that more heads will roll. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, you must realize how important it is in world affairs for the president, every president, to have top-notch protection when he is out in public. If agents are dreaming about their exploits the week before, that may be hard to do. The president may joke about it, but you have to assume that underneath, hes a little apprehensive. I hope there will be better supervision of the agents in the future, and especially of the advance teams, those who arent directly involved with protection, but who are setting up safety measures. Their job should be the focus of all their concentration. Anything less produces danger to our country.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

At a time when the state university system is struggling with massive cuts, Florida Gov. Rick Scotts decision to sign a bill creating a 12th university is flawed. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been sapped from the Florida university system and now legislators and the governor are creating a new university by splitting USF Polytechnic off from the University of South Florida despite the lack of a demonstrated need or public request to do so. Departing Senate budget chairman JD Alexander has led the charge making the formation of Florida Polytechnic his primary focus. Despite broad opposition, but that hasnt stopped Alexander from wielding his enormous influence to make it happen. Members of both sides of the legislative aisle have blasted the move, calling it a wasteful power play and saying the governor has broken his promise to voters to be fiscally responsible. Initially the university will lack accreditation, which will affect enrollment as the first class of students could well graduate without an accredited degree. This decision weakens the other established state universities and specifically hurts USF as more than $70 million will be transferred to Florida Polytechnic for the construction of a new campus. This is a classic case of a powerful state politician using his influence to drive home a pet project. The creation of a new university is not in Floridas best interest and not something driven by public interest it is driven by the personal interest of one man. Gov. Scott, who campaigned as an outsider, has allowed himself to be drawn in to the insider politics of Tallahassee and, in doing so, is damaging the future of higher education in Florida. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Governor, legislators hurt higher education The not-so-secret services activities LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Away from White House?Recently we hear a lot of negative remarks regarding President Obama's frequent trips so let us look at the facts: During President Obama's first year in office, he spent 26 days away from the White House. President Regan spent 42 days away. G. H. W. bush spent 69 days away. G. Bush 2 spent a total of 147 days away from the White House in his first year. During his two terms in office he spent 477 days at Camp David plus 77 days at his Crawford Ranch In those eight years he had a total including vacation and retreats of 967 days away, which equals 32 percent of his total time in office. So to all President Obama critics, look at the facts and cut him some slack, he is working hard to drag our country out of a recession. John Toner OcalaPOW ceremonyOn April 28, the Ocala Police Department held a POW flag raising ceremony. I rolled out of bed early, donned my MCL uniform, and went to the event. I was extremely pleased there was an opening prayer. The Junior ROTC performed with snap and pop, and veterans attending were recognized. I wish to congratulate the Ocala Police Department for a distinguished and tasteful ceremony. Barbara R. Priest Ocala Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen With Mitt Romneys sweep of recent primaries, he will almost certainly be President Barack Obamas Republican opponent in November. Romney has vowed to make the economy the chief issue against Obama, and he is sure to portray the president as an enemy of free enterprise in order to draw a contrast with himself. How fit is Romneys claim to be a champion of economic freedom? The former Massachusetts governor and private-equity capitalist speaks often about free enterprise and the need for government to let entrepreneurship pull the economy out of its current doldrums. This sort of rhetoric is common for Republicans, who then proceed to violate economic freedom. President George W. Bush, in a weird Orwellian manner, took this contradiction to its final stage of absurdity when he said during the 2008 financial debacle, Ive abandoned free market principles to save the free market system. For Bush, the freemarket system apparently is not constituted by free-market principles. But if thats the case, what is the system constituted by? Republicans may not typically speak so bluntly, but to most of them the free-market system isnt a set of principles; rather it is an emotional slogan to be spoken, especially as an election approaches. Its a way of saying, Vote for us because the other guys arent good Americans like we are. Romney likes to say, We are only inches away from ceasing to be a free market economy. But that must mean we now have and have had a free-market economy. Does he really mean that? If so, does he agree with Bush that free-market principles were abandoned with the bank bailouts like TARP (which Romney favored) and the GM and Chrysler rescues? Another implication of his position is that the free market was responsible for the housing and financial debacle. Were not likely to hear Romney say this it would concede too much to Obama but its logically implied by Romneys remarks. This position diverges from what free-market advocates think happened. The essential story is this: Low-interest-rate money from the Federal Reserve, aggressive government policies to increase homeownership even among people with bad credit histories or low incomes (or both) and additional government intervention combined to create an unsustainable bubble in the housing industry, which in turn helped increase the fragility of the financial sector. Dubious mortgages became the foundation of widely held securities and derivatives, facilitated by government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a government-licensed rating cartel. Then the bubble burst. Does Romney give even a hint that he understands this? If so, he wouldnt be talking as though the free market currently exists and as though we still have it to lose. Beyond that, Romney expresses his orientation toward political economy when he says, Washington has to become an ally of business, not the opposition of business. A free-market advocate would know this doesnt exhaust the alternatives. Government should be neither an ally nor an opponent of business, because both imply interference with private property and free exchange. This may be harder to see in the case of a business-government alliance. One need only remember that we live in a world of scarcity. If government helps one industry or firm, it must do so by channeling scarce resources away from other uses. This disables the process by which entrepreneurs attempt to devote resources to purposes most favored by consumers. Its a form of government privilege, which many businessmen are all too happy to receive at the expense of others. There is a world of difference between being promarket and being pro-business a distinction that apparently escapes Romney.

His friends have commented on Richs leadership skills. A keen sense of humor and ready smile; are qualities that endear him to others and his confident manner inspires and motivates those around him. Richard is from East Windsor, New Jersey but moved many times between New York City and New Jersey during his career with a private company. He moved to Cherrywood in May of 2001 and has been a vital part of the community ever since. As a young man, Rich worked after graduating from High School at Singer Manufacturing Corporation and Mennen Company as a computer operator. In 1961 Uncle Sam called and Richard was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served for two years. Among his assignments was a tour at 1st Army Headquarters, Governors Island, New York. He worked in computers and made extra money moonlighting on Wall Street a couple of days per week issuing stock certificates. That came to an end when the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred. Following his discharge he went back to work for the Mennen Corporation. In 1969 he wandered into a lounge named Molly Browns and there he met his future bride, Ruth. In 1971 they married and 41 years later, they are still together; still happy and still in love. Ruth serves as secretary to the Veterans Club. They have a daughter, Susan, who lives in Mesa, Arizona. For over 17 years, Rich worked as a facilitator for a private company. He and his partner would acquire small companies that had innovative ideas or a large customer base. Over a period of time, they would consolidate these smaller companies into larger ones making them more efficient and reducing overhead. When the companies were merged, they became more attractive to investors and they would be sold or refinanced to turn a larger profit. Much of the work in this area was facilitated by Rich who enjoyed the friendship and confidence of not only his partners but his coworkers as well. He has carried these qualities over in his personal life. After working his way up in the business world, Rich took a job with Mercer County, New Jersey, as a computer coordinator. He managed and supervised several departments and people as the county converted to high tech equipment for a more efficient operation. His experience in business and his way with people made him the ideal person to perform those duties. Admittedly, Rich found working for the government a little bit more frustrating than working in the private sector. Inefficiency seems to be the hallmark of government operations and turning that around is not easy. After 10 years with the county, Rich retired. Richard serves as treasurer of the Veterans Club and is active in all of their endeavors. Ritz House is just one of the projects that Richard became active in. Putting in long hours and hard work, he helped gather food for the residents and then worked with a few others on remodeling a room to house a worthy veteran. Besides his many duties with the Veterans Club, Rich runs the mens and co-ed pool teams; hosts Trivia night along with Fred OHern; the Kentucky Derby night; and is very prominent in the Fun in the Sun Games. Just about every other function that we have in Cherrywood, Rich will either be there doing something to help out others or leading the way himself. In his spare time, which is very limited, Rich enjoys golfing, bowling and reading. He finds the people of Cherrywood fun to be around and enjoys socializing with them. If he had one wish, it would be greater participation by our residents in the vast number of opportunities that are available to everyone. When you see Rich around the Clubhouse; at Bocce Ball; on Trivia Night or any of the many other functions we have, make sure you stop by and thank him for his service to our country and to our community.

Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel has received some really nice comments from residents on two of our recent trips. On April 19 two buses filled with excited Oak Runners left for Washington, D.C., looking forward to the Smithsonian, the various memorials and beautiful buildings on the Mall. Everyone raved about the excellent hotels and their great breakfasts and even though the weather did not cooperate the tour guides were able to make some changes to accommodate the rain. The Marine Memorial was of special interest and did not disappoint. Comments ranged from beautiful to awe inspiring. It may be that we will have to schedule another trip to DC in the future. The day trip on April 18 to the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach was sold out. Both the Peabody and the show, In The Mood, received very high accolades. This 1940s era musical review included a number of Glen Millers greatest hits like String of Pearls and of course In The Mood. The big band music was as popular with our travelers as it was for all of America during this time in our countrys history. We had 79 travelers depart on April 26 for the much anticipated Northern European Passage Cruise on the Emerald Princess, hosted by our highly experienced hosts, Bob and Cindy Kocher. Everyone was really looking forward to the spring flowers in bloom, especially the azaleas in the Azores and the tulips in Holland. We expect to hear some more great reviews when these travelers return from their 18-day odyssey that also includes Ireland, England, France, Norway and Denmark. Oak Run Author PublishedCurtis D.

On Sunday, April 29, Ocala firefighters responded to a tractor trailer fire at 1:09 p.m., and on arrival quickly extinguished the blaze. The driver of the 2007 Kenworth tractor owned by Burress L.L.C. told fire officials that he noticed smoke from the trailer and pulled over to the side of the interstate. He attempted to use his fire extinguisher; however the flames were too large and he called 911. The tractor, valued at $70,000, was separated from the trailer in an attempt to control the fire, although both were damaged. The trailer contained corn meal which was being transported from Indiana to Miami. The fire is believed to have started in the tractor and extended into the trailer. The vehicle fire also ignited a small grass fire. The incident was placed under control at 1:34 p.m., although firefighters remained on scene almost two hours. There were no injuries. The fire happened at mile marker 348, approximately two miles south of State Road 200 in the southbound lanes. For a time the Florida Highway Patrol had all three lanes blocked southbound, with one line of traffic being allowed to pass on the inside shoulder.

Chad Taylors original script Home Schooled, will be performed by West Port High Schools Thespian troupe at the Insomniac Theatre, May 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. Following the one-act play, students in West Ports acting and musical theatre programs will perform a showcase of scenes, monologues, and musical numbers. The Insomniac Theatre is in downtown Ocala at 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Tickets are $10. For reservations call 352-8970477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com. Home Schooled was written especially for the troupe by Taylor, based on ideas from students in the West Port High School theatre program. The play premiered at West Port High School in November and earned a superior rating at the District XII Thespian Festival held in Gainesville in December. Taylor, a former Thespian at Forest High School, has written numerous one act plays for Thespian troupes to perform, but this is the first time he has partnered with West Port High School. Janet Shelley, West Ports theatre director, has high praise for Taylors dramaturgical skills. Chad participated in a brain-storming session with my advanced acting students, took home a list of seemingly disjointed ideas and came back a few days later with a brilliant, thought-provoking script. The plot concerns a teenage girl named Sarah, who is home schooled by an often-times ludicrous teacher. The play leads the audience through a series of bizarre events, culminating in a final scene that leaves them trying to piece together what happened. Taylor says of the production, I had hoped to create something that would have the same level of quality that West Port has sustained over the years so I had decided to go the route of creating the most challenging piece imaginable. I was able to watch their competition performance and was amazed at the level of talent and professionalism the students brought to the stage. Its a piece that would be tough for a professional company to perform and the students made it look easy. Im proud to be a part of bringing the only original competition piece at this years festival to the stage and I look forward to seeing if this upcoming performances audience reacts to the ending as enthusiastically as the festivals crowd did. West Port troupe to perform Explore Rainbow SpringsThe UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, UF/IFAS Citrus County Extension Service and Rainbow Springs State Park will hold a Get Out and Explore Rainbow Springs event and optional canoe/kayak paddle on May 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an optional canoe/kayak paddle from 3 to 5 p.m. The event will be at Rainbow Springs State Park, 19158 S.W. 81st Place Road, Dunnellon. On May 16, you have the chance to do more than skim the surface of this unspoiled Florida gem dive into the details at the Get out and Explore event hosted by UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service. Participants will hike the nature trails along the river and learn about the plants and wildlife that surround it. University of Florida research scientists will give water quality demonstrations and other experts will explain how groundwater is connected to springs and rivers. Program attendees will also learn about what lives in the springs. 000BBF7 Time Round 2 nd Furniture & Home Decor Consignment 7256 SW 62nd Ave. Ocala, FL 34476 352-433-8378 We are looking for good used recliners, sofas, end tables, etc. Send us your jpeg file and we will get back to you. secondtimeround11@yahoo.com Why not let us bring out the best with what you have.

Shes not as sharp as she used to be very forgetful and confused. Is it just old age or Alzheimers? You dont have a clue and youre not alone. Half of all Americans know someone with Alzheimers, the deadly disease that affects five million of us more women than men. Yet just in time for Mothers Day, in a recent Senior Helpers Alzheimers Quiz taken by more than one thousand people, 67 percent or 2/3 failed (they got fewer than 60 percent of the questions correct)! Thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest providers of in-home senior care, with an office in our area, has launched Senior Gems, a free and revolutionary Alzheimers education program. It assigns each stage of the disease to a gem, like a diamond or ruby, and gives step-by-step instruction so people can navigate every mood and movement of a loved one who is coping with the disease. We have a crisis in America because Alzheimers is a deadly epidemic yet this quiz shows many people still dont know enough about the disease or how to best communicate with a loved one who has it. As our population grows older and lives longer, families will need survival skills to cope through the various stages of the disease and manage the stressful toll it takes on everyone, says Peter Ross, CEO and founder of Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home senior care companies and co-creator of the Senior Gems program. We launched Senior Gems to give caregivers and family members a hands-on guide for education and survival. Take the quiz, Page 4 How much do you know about Alzheimers?

Whether you buy or make your mother a card, get her a bouquet of flowers, box of candy or maybe a nice visit, it will be appreciated by her. Also Armed Forces day is May 19 and Memorial Day is observed on May 28.Feature for this monthSince this will be my last feature I have chosen a unique pair. They are Mandy and Nancy Dennis. Nancy Dennis was born in Nanticoke, Pa. She came to Spruce Creek North with her parents in 1989. Her dad passed away in 1996 and her mom in 2004. She remained in that home ever since. She has a daughter, Debby, in North Carolina and a son, David, in Pennsylvania. Nancy is a registered nurse and works at Ocala West United Methodist Church. After her mom passed away Nancy decided to get a puppy. She chose a Maltese who was born almost 8 years ago and was named Mandy. When she got this puppy she never realized what a treasure she had found. Mandy became a registered therapy and service dog. She travels with Nancy to Munroe Hospital, TimberRidge rehab, assisted living, Hospice, plus many private homes. So they are always together. One remarkable incident happened when they visited a man who had never spoken a word. Before the visit was over, the man spoke a few words to Mandy. Nancy has been writing some very interesting health articles for the SCN newsletter. They are very informative and the residents are enjoying them. She is one talented lady. Mandy has brought so much happiness to so many people. I am not sure who is the lucky lady, Mandy or Nancy? I think it is a little bit of both.Social UpdatesThe April Showers dance was held April 21 with entertainment by Gail. The crowd seemed to have a good time. This is the last dance until the fall. The SCN ice cream social was April 29 and looks like there was tons of ice cream. The next and last event will be the Memorial Day Picnic May 28. At this annual picnic there will be hamburgers, hot dogs, and side dishes plus beverages. Time is 12:30 and entertainment of course. Tickets are required for this picnic. They will be sold May 22 and 23 at the Clubhouse from 1 to 2 p.m. More information is on the SCN bulletin board. Thanks to Cindy Hutchins for all this news.Good-bye to SCN ladiesA memorial was held for Rose Seale who passed away last month. Also Sadie Horton passed away Easter Sunday. Sadie would have been 100 years old on May 19. Our condolences go to all their families and friends.SCN clubsSince this is my last column I would like to mention all the clubs and activities we have here in Spruce Creek North.

Please keep in mind though that if you are in a backyard that is not fenced or out walking your dog, it must be on a leash according to the Marion County Leash Ordinance. We ask that you keep your pet away from neighboring houses and lawns. We would hope that all pet owners are courteous enough to do this. A special thank you to John Delaney of Oak Run who sent me a very much appreciated letter. Thank you John! Also thanks go to Betty Testa for letting me know about Mandy and Nancy!

Shes not as sharp as she used to be very forgetful and confused. Is it just old age or Alzheimers? You dont have a clue and youre not alone. Half of all Americans know someone with Alzheimers, the deadly disease that affects five million of us more women than men. Yet just in time for Mothers Day, in a recent Senior Helpers Alzheimers Quiz taken by more than one thousand people, 67 percent or 2/3 failed (they got fewer than 60 percent of the questions correct)! Thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest providers of in-home senior care, with an office in our area, has launched Senior Gems, a free and revolutionary Alzheimers education program. It assigns each stage of the disease to a gem, like a diamond or ruby, and gives step-by-step instruction so people can navigate every mood and movement of a loved one who is coping with the disease. We have a crisis in America because Alzheimers is a deadly epidemic yet this quiz shows many people still dont know enough about the disease or how to best communicate with a loved one who has it. As our population grows older and lives longer, families will need survival skills to cope through the various stages of the disease and manage the stressful toll it takes on everyone, says Peter Ross, CEO and founder of Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home senior care companies and co-creator of the Senior Gems program. We launched Senior Gems to give caregivers and family members a hands-on guide for education and survival. Take the quiz, Page 4 How much do you know about Alzheimers?

Whether you buy or make your mother a card, get her a bouquet of flowers, box of candy or maybe a nice visit, it will be appreciated by her. Also Armed Forces day is May 19 and Memorial Day is observed on May 28.Feature for this monthSince this will be my last feature I have chosen a unique pair. They are Mandy and Nancy Dennis. Nancy Dennis was born in Nanticoke, Pa. She came to Spruce Creek North with her parents in 1989. Her dad passed away in 1996 and her mom in 2004. She remained in that home ever since. She has a daughter, Debby, in North Carolina and a son, David, in Pennsylvania. Nancy is a registered nurse and works at Ocala West United Methodist Church. After her mom passed away Nancy decided to get a puppy. She chose a Maltese who was born almost 8 years ago and was named Mandy. When she got this puppy she never realized what a treasure she had found. Mandy became a registered therapy and service dog. She travels with Nancy to Munroe Hospital, TimberRidge rehab, assisted living, Hospice, plus many private homes. So they are always together. One remarkable incident happened when they visited a man who had never spoken a word. Before the visit was over, the man spoke a few words to Mandy. Nancy has been writing some very interesting health articles for the SCN newsletter. They are very informative and the residents are enjoying them. She is one talented lady. Mandy has brought so much happiness to so many people. I am not sure who is the lucky lady, Mandy or Nancy? I think it is a little bit of both. Social Updates The April Showers dance was held April 21 with entertainment by Gail. The crowd seemed to have a good time. This is the last dance until the fall. The SCN ice cream social was April 29 and looks like there was tons of ice cream. The next and last event will be the Memorial Day Picnic May 28. At this annual picnic there will be hamburgers, hot dogs, and side dishes plus beverages. Time is 12:30 and entertainment of course. Tickets are required for this picnic. They will be sold May 22 and 23 at the Clubhouse from 1 to 2 p.m. More information is on the SCN bulletin board. Thanks to Cindy Hutchins for all this news. Good-bye to SCN ladiesA memorial was held for Rose Seale who passed away last month. Also Sadie Horton passed away Easter Sunday. Sadie would have been 100 years old on May 19. Our condolences go to all their families and friends. SCN clubsSince this is my last column I would like to mention all the clubs and activities we have here in Spruce Creek North.

Please keep in mind though that if you are in a backyard that is not fenced or out walking your dog, it must be on a leash according to the Marion County Leash Ordinance. We ask that you keep your pet away from neighboring houses and lawns. We would hope that all pet owners are courteous enough to do this. A special thank you to John Delaney of Oak Run who sent me a very much appreciated letter. Thank you John! Also thanks go to Betty Testa for letting me know about Mandy and Nancy!

Chad Taylors original script Home Schooled, will be performed by West Port High Schools Thespian troupe at the Insomniac Theatre, May 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. Following the one-act play, students in West Ports acting and musical theatre programs will perform a showcase of scenes, monologues, and musical numbers. The Insomniac Theatre is in downtown Ocala at 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Tickets are $10. For reservations call 352-8970477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com. Home Schooled was written especially for the troupe by Taylor, based on ideas from students in the West Port High School theatre program. The play premiered at West Port High School in November and earned a superior rating at the District XII Thespian Festival held in Gainesville in December. Taylor, a former Thespian at Forest High School, has written numerous one act plays for Thespian troupes to perform, but this is the first time he has partnered with West Port High School. Janet Shelley, West Ports theatre director, has high praise for Taylors dramaturgical skills. Chad participated in a brain-storming session with my advanced acting students, took home a list of seemingly disjointed ideas and came back a few days later with a brilliant, thought-provoking script. The plot concerns a teenage girl named Sarah, who is home schooled by an often-times ludicrous teacher. The play leads the audience through a series of bizarre events, culminating in a final scene that leaves them trying to piece together what happened. Taylor says of the production, I had hoped to create something that would have the same level of quality that West Port has sustained over the years so I had decided to go the route of creating the most challenging piece imaginable. I was able to watch their competition performance and was amazed at the level of talent and professionalism the students brought to the stage. Its a piece that would be tough for a professional company to perform and the students made it look easy. Im proud to be a part of bringing the only original competition piece at this years festival to the stage and I look forward to seeing if this upcoming performances audience reacts to the ending as enthusiastically as the festivals crowd did. West Port troupe to perform Explore Rainbow Springs The UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, UF/IFAS Citrus County Extension Service and Rainbow Springs State Park will hold a Get Out and Explore Rainbow Springs event and optional canoe/kayak paddle on May 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an optional canoe/kayak paddle from 3 to 5 p.m. The event will be at Rainbow Springs State Park, 19158 S.W. 81st Place Road, Dunnellon.

On Sunday, April 29, Ocala firefighters responded to a tractor trailer fire at 1:09 p.m., and on arrival quickly extinguished the blaze. The driver of the 2007 Kenworth tractor owned by Burress L.L.C. told fire officials that he noticed smoke from the trailer and pulled over to the side of the interstate. He attempted to use his fire extinguisher; however the flames were too large and he called 911. The tractor, valued at $70,000, was separated from the trailer in an attempt to control the fire, although both were damaged. The trailer contained corn meal which was being transported from Indiana to Miami. The fire is believed to have started in the tractor and extended into the trailer. The vehicle fire also ignited a small grass fire. The incident was placed under control at 1:34 p.m., although firefighters remained on scene almost two hours. There were no injuries. The fire happened at mile marker 348, approximately two miles south of State Road 200 in the southbound lanes. For a time the Florida Highway Patrol had all three lanes blocked southbound, with one line of traffic being allowed to pass on the inside shoulder.

Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel has received some really nice comments from residents on two of our recent trips. On April 19 two buses filled with excited Oak Runners left for Washington, D.C., looking forward to the Smithsonian, the various memorials and beautiful buildings on the Mall. Everyone raved about the excellent hotels and their great breakfasts and even though the weather did not cooperate the tour guides were able to make some changes to accommodate the rain. The Marine Memorial was of special interest and did not disappoint. Comments ranged from beautiful to awe inspiring. It may be that we will have to schedule another trip to DC in the future. The day trip on April 18 to the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach was sold out. Both the Peabody and the show, In The Mood, received very high accolades. This 1940s era musical review included a number of Glen Millers greatest hits like String of Pearls and of course In The Mood. The big band music was as popular with our travelers as it was for all of America during this time in our countrys history. We had 79 travelers depart on April 26 for the much anticipated Northern European Passage Cruise on the Emerald Princess, hosted by our highly experienced hosts, Bob and Cindy Kocher. Everyone was really looking forward to the spring flowers in bloom, especially the azaleas in the Azores and the tulips in Holland. We expect to hear some more great reviews when these travelers return from their 18-day odyssey that also includes Ireland, England, France, Norway and Denmark. Oak Run Author PublishedCurtis D.

His friends have commented on Richs leadership skills. A keen sense of humor and ready smile; are qualities that endear him to others and his confident manner inspires and motivates those around him. Richard is from East Windsor, New Jersey but moved many times between New York City and New Jersey during his career with a private company. He moved to Cherrywood in May of 2001 and has been a vital part of the community ever since. As a young man, Rich worked after graduating from High School at Singer Manufacturing Corporation and Mennen Company as a computer operator. In 1961 Uncle Sam called and Richard was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served for two years. Among his assignments was a tour at 1st Army Headquarters, Governors Island, New York. He worked in computers and made extra money moonlighting on Wall Street a couple of days per week issuing stock certificates. That came to an end when the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred. Following his discharge he went back to work for the Mennen Corporation. In 1969 he wandered into a lounge named Molly Browns and there he met his future bride, Ruth. In 1971 they married and 41 years later, they are still together; still happy and still in love. Ruth serves as secretary to the Veterans Club. They have a daughter, Susan, who lives in Mesa, Arizona. For over 17 years, Rich worked as a facilitator for a private company. He and his partner would acquire small companies that had innovative ideas or a large customer base. Over a period of time, they would consolidate these smaller companies into larger ones making them more efficient and reducing overhead. When the companies were merged, they became more attractive to investors and they would be sold or refinanced to turn a larger profit. Much of the work in this area was facilitated by Rich who enjoyed the friendship and confidence of not only his partners but his coworkers as well. He has carried these qualities over in his personal life. After working his way up in the business world, Rich took a job with Mercer County, New Jersey, as a computer coordinator. He managed and supervised several departments and people as the county converted to high tech equipment for a more efficient operation. His experience in business and his way with people made him the ideal person to perform those duties. Admittedly, Rich found working for the government a little bit more frustrating than working in the private sector. Inefficiency seems to be the hallmark of government operations and turning that around is not easy. After 10 years with the county, Rich retired. Richard serves as treasurer of the Veterans Club and is active in all of their endeavors. Ritz House is just one of the projects that Richard became active in. Putting in long hours and hard work, he helped gather food for the residents and then worked with a few others on remodeling a room to house a worthy veteran. Besides his many duties with the Veterans Club, Rich runs the mens and co-ed pool teams; hosts Trivia night along with Fred OHern; the Kentucky Derby night; and is very prominent in the Fun in the Sun Games. Just about every other function that we have in Cherrywood, Rich will either be there doing something to help out others or leading the way himself. In his spare time, which is very limited, Rich enjoys golfing, bowling and reading. He finds the people of Cherrywood fun to be around and enjoys socializing with them. If he had one wish, it would be greater participation by our residents in the vast number of opportunities that are available to everyone. When you see Rich around the Clubhouse; at Bocce Ball; on Trivia Night or any of the many other functions we have, make sure you stop by and thank him for his service to our country and to our community.

bodies of water and these storms can come at us from any direction with life threatening fury. Our Emergency Response Team is a vital part of our protection and preparedness. Among other duties, these volunteers stand ready to risk life and limb providing the Sheriffs Office with damage assessments on the ground; alerting emergency personnel of injuries; providing the power company with real time outages and in many cases, providing badly needed first aid and CPR medical attention. In addition, when communications are knocked out, the licensed ham radio operators are the necessary link to the outside world. Our CERT Team needs volunteers and more. On May 16th at 8:30 in the morning, CERT will meet in the clubhouse card room. Everyone who would like to be a part of this life saving team is urged to attend. In addition, anyone with a special need is especially urged to attend or have a representative attend for you. Special needs include persons with limited mobility that need help evacuating or maneuvering in an emergency; those who are on oxygen; those who have medications that need to be kept refrigerated and any other problem that keeps an individual from securing themselves in an emergency. CERT has forms to be filled out so that their personnel can care for those persons with needs first and foremost in any given situation. The training for our CERT team is excellent; the planning complete; and the concern for their fellow residents above and beyond the call. Support your CERT team. To be an active part of it; if you require more information on preparing for a storm; or if you have any special needs; be sure to contact Dewella Markland, the team leader or David Siegel, the Assistant Team Leader. There is no substitute for readiness; education and training. Garden ClubAt 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, the Garden Club will meet for the last time this season. The members will be touring at least three gardens in Cherrywood Estates but they will look at more if invited. If youve got a garden that you think would be of interest, contact Jay at cherrywoodgardenrs@gamail.c om or call him at 352-8970160. These gardens of interest tours give members of the club new ideas and a new appreciation for the hard work our residents put into their yards. At their last meeting the Garden Club made some changes to their organization. Each month starting in October a different person will act as chairperson and provide the agenda and program for that month. For example, Sandra Brotherhood will host the October Meeting with a trip to Sugar Tree Farms. This promises to be a great outing for all. If you have an interest in the beautiful flowers and shrubs of Florida; if you want ideas on how to make your garden more productive and beautiful or if you just want to share your love of flowers with some new Buds, (groan) the Garden Club is for you. As a footnote, there is a Master Gardners Plant Sale on May 12 at the Agricultural Center on Northeast Jacksonville Road from 8 a.m. until noon. For more information, contact Jay.Cherrywood Democratic Club Open meeting, Friday, May 18. All registered voters are welcome at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Refreshments will be served. This month Dr. Diana Stafford Greene, a candidate for the position of superintendent of schools, will be the guest. The current superintendent is Jim Yancey, who is not seeking re-election after nearly a decade at the helm. Dr. Greene believes that the school system is a vital part of our community. As the largest employer in the area it is major part of Marion Countys economic lifeline. An educated workforce is essential for our future and provides students with an opportunity for a strong foundation for their dreams. It is her pledge and commitment to our community to advance and prepare our young people of this great community of Marion County for the future. To accomplish these goals in these uncertain times our school district needs a common sense approach; experienced leadership and one who is able to deliver results of success. Dr. Greene we believe is the person to do the job. She invites us all to join her on this journey. Dr. Greene will be pleased to answer any questions you may have; so please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation towards their needs you may do so through our secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Voter registration cards are available, so if you know of anyone that is not registered or wishes to change party affiliation, we are able to make the changes. The Cherrywood Democratic Club meets on the third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Harriet Scarpino is president; Ken Beech vice president, 352861-8315.

There are usually major speakers, and that was true this year as President Obama spoke and joked his way through a monologue in front of the room full of journalists. The most telling moment, however, came at the end of Obamas talk. To paraphrase the presidents final joke, he said he had plenty more material, but had to cut it short to get the Secret Service home before its new curfew. That drew a big laugh from the crowd, but the camera panned to two men standing at the side, most assuredly members of the Secret Service. They werent laughing. In fact, their glare at the president could only be described as a scowl. By now, everyone should know what happened with the Secret Service. An advance team in Colombia was reportedly partying with prostitutes, and there was a dispute over payment that made the whole event public. The president wasnt there yet, and was obviously not in danger. Since then, a half dozen or so agents have been fired and rules have been tightened rules that shouldnt be needed for anyone, much less the people charged with protecting the president of the United States. If anyone thinks this was an isolated incident, well, dream on. Something like this didnt just come out of the blue, with a bunch of agents saying, Hey, lets do something weve never done before. Lets party with some girls. Another analysis over the weekend said the incident emphasizes how few women there are in the Secret Service. We havent heard the end of this tale. More accusations have already been made, tougher guidelines have already been imposed on the agents, and it is expected that more heads will roll. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, you must realize how important it is in world affairs for the president, every president, to have top-notch protection when he is out in public. If agents are dreaming about their exploits the week before, that may be hard to do. The president may joke about it, but you have to assume that underneath, hes a little apprehensive. I hope there will be better supervision of the agents in the future, and especially of the advance teams, those who arent directly involved with protection, but who are setting up safety measures. Their job should be the focus of all their concentration. Anything less produces danger to our country.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

A t a time when the state university system is struggling with massive cuts, Florida Gov. Rick Scotts decision to sign a bill creating a 12th university is flawed. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been sapped from the Florida university system and now legislators and the governor are creating a new university by splitting USF Polytechnic off from the University of South Florida despite the lack of a demonstrated need or public request to do so. Departing Senate budget chairman JD Alexander has led the charge making the formation of Florida Polytechnic his primary focus. Despite broad opposition, but that hasnt stopped Alexander from wielding his enormous influence to make it happen. Members of both sides of the legislative aisle have blasted the move, calling it a wasteful power play and saying the governor has broken his promise to voters to be fiscally responsible. Initially the university will lack accreditation, which will affect enrollment as the first class of students could well graduate without an accredited degree. This decision weakens the other established state universities and specifically hurts USF as more than $70 million will be transferred to Florida Polytechnic for the construction of a new campus. This is a classic case of a powerful state politician using his influence to drive home a pet project. The creation of a new university is not in Floridas best interest and not something driven by public interest it is driven by the personal interest of one man. Gov. Scott, who campaigned as an outsider, has allowed himself to be drawn in to the insider politics of Tallahassee and, in doing so, is damaging the future of higher education in Florida. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Governor, legislators hurt higher education The not-so-secret services activities LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Away from White House?Recently we hear a lot of negative remarks regarding President Obama's frequent trips so let us look at the facts: During President Obama's first year in office, he spent 26 days away from the White House. President Regan spent 42 days away. G. H. W. bush spent 69 days away. G. Bush 2 spent a total of 147 days away from the White House in his first year. During his two terms in office he spent 477 days at Camp David plus 77 days at his Crawford Ranch In those eight years he had a total including vacation and retreats of 967 days away, which equals 32 percent of his total time in office. So to all President Obama critics, look at the facts and cut him some slack, he is working hard to drag our country out of a recession. John Toner Ocala POW ceremonyOn April 28, the Ocala Police Department held a POW flag raising ceremony. I rolled out of bed early, donned my MCL uniform, and went to the event. I was extremely pleased there was an opening prayer. The Junior ROTC performed with snap and pop, and veterans attending were recognized. I wish to congratulate the Ocala Police Department for a distinguished and tasteful ceremony. Barbara R. Priest Ocala Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen W ith Mitt Romneys sweep of recent primaries, he will almost certainly be President Barack Obamas Republican opponent in November. Romney has vowed to make the economy the chief issue against Obama, and he is sure to portray the president as an enemy of free enterprise in order to draw a contrast with himself. How fit is Romneys claim to be a champion of economic freedom? The former Massachusetts governor and private-equity capitalist speaks often about free enterprise and the need for government to let entrepreneurship pull the economy out of its current doldrums. This sort of rhetoric is common for Republicans, who then proceed to violate economic freedom. President George W. Bush, in a weird Orwellian manner, took this contradiction to its final stage of absurdity when he said during the 2008 financial debacle, Ive abandoned free market principles to save the free market system. For Bush, the freemarket system apparently is not constituted by free-market principles. But if thats the case, what is the system constituted by? Republicans may not typically speak so bluntly, but to most of them the free-market system isnt a set of principles; rather it is an emotional slogan to be spoken, especially as an election approaches. Its a way of saying, Vote for us because the other guys arent good Americans like we are. Romney likes to say, We are only inches away from ceasing to be a free market economy. But that must mean we now have and have had a free-market economy. Does he really mean that? If so, does he agree with Bush that free-market principles were abandoned with the bank bailouts like TARP (which Romney favored) and the GM and Chrysler rescues? Another implication of his position is that the free market was responsible for the housing and financial debacle. Were not likely to hear Romney say this it would concede too much to Obama but its logically implied by Romneys remarks. This position diverges from what free-market advocates think happened. The essential story is this: Low-interest-rate money from the Federal Reserve, aggressive government policies to increase homeownership even among people with bad credit histories or low incomes (or both) and additional government intervention combined to create an unsustainable bubble in the housing industry, which in turn helped increase the fragility of the financial sector. Dubious mortgages became the foundation of widely held securities and derivatives, facilitated by government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a government-licensed rating cartel. Then the bubble burst. Does Romney give even a hint that he understands this? If so, he wouldnt be talking as though the free market currently exists and as though we still have it to lose. Beyond that, Romney expresses his orientation toward political economy when he says, Washington has to become an ally of business, not the opposition of business. A free-market advocate would know this doesnt exhaust the alternatives. Government should be neither an ally nor an opponent of business, because both imply interference with private property and free exchange. This may be harder to see in the case of a business-government alliance. One need only remember that we live in a world of scarcity. If government helps one industry or firm, it must do so by channeling scarce resources away from other uses. This disables the process by which entrepreneurs attempt to devote resources to purposes most favored by consumers. Its a form of government privilege, which many businessmen are all too happy to receive at the expense of others. There is a world of difference between being promarket and being pro-business a distinction that apparently escapes Romney.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Of course, Obama could honestly say he agrees with Romneys statement about business and government. He too believes government should be businesss ally. Just ask Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric, who chairs his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, and Jim McNerney of Boeing (and formerly of GE), who chairs the Presidents Export Council. Romney and Obamas differences over the precise mix of government and business decisionmaking power should not fool anyone into thinking they have a fundamental disagreement. Once again, the presidential election will present an echo, not a choice. Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 T hrough the years, I have discovered two important facets of husbandship that has stood me in good stead for many years: a vigorous nod of the head and a rhapsodic Yes, dear. Flowers dont hurt either. When our recent visit in Ohio concluded, we headed for the airport. I do not mind traveling, but my least favorite mode is the airplane. The reason being, of course, is the airport itself. In my opinion, someone devised the modern airport to intimidate the average traveler. Arriving at the airport, we immediately headed for the ticket counter where we received our boarding passes. Then we surrendered our luggage to the personnel behind the counter, not knowing if we would ever see that same luggage again in our lifetime. Someday I hope to visit all the places my luggage has seen. Next, we made our way through the security booth. As you know, they do not permit metal through this gate. If a passenger passes through and a buzzer goes off, he is summoned back for guards to examine his personal effects to detect the offensive object. I went through about 17 times. Not until I got down to my underwear did the security personnel determine there must be a defect in the radar detection equipment. (I plan to file my briefs in a Florida court this week.) Finally, we left the security area and I started feeling a little more confident until we came to a big sign over the entryway. My wife and I found little comfort in the words written: Terminal Entrance. Contrary to their friendly little sign, I did, in fact have plans of returning. Our flight plan called for a two hour stopover before arriving at our final destination. Nothing quite compares to spending a free hour or two at an airport. Did I say free? Allow me to recount that opinion. There is absolutely nothing free at an airport. I cannot prove it, but I am sure they have figured out a way to charge for the air we breathe. For instance, a 15 cent cup of coffee can cost in the neighborhood of $17.95. I dont even like visiting that neighborhood. If I lived there, I would move. However, being the good natured, charming individual that I am, it does not take much to make me happy. All I need to allay any stress is a simple cup of coffee. Have you ever noticed how things seem to go a lot easier with a steaming jolt of java? With a full hour to spare at the airport, my wife and I looked for something to occupy our time. Then I espied the perfect diversion. With a mischievous twinkle in my left eye, I looked at my wife and said, Lets get a cup of coffee and relax a while. One thing I can always count on my wife, she knows a good thing when she hears it. Unfortunately, she does not hear it too often from my lips. Walking over to the coffee shop and, being the man, I approached the counter to place our order. I would like two regular coffees, I said with anticipation to the young woman behind the counter. The thing that makes a man a man is that he always knows what he wants. It is that confidence that separates the men from the boys. The young woman looked at me, snapped her chewing gum several times and said in a monotone, Marvelous, you want espresso or cappuccino? No, Miss, I replied as cool and sophisticated as any gentleman you will ever meet. No, Miss. We just want two plain coffees. She looked at me as only a waitress behind a counter can and rattled off names I have never heard before. As best I could understand, they were flavors or kinds of espresso coffee. Finally, when she took a Knowing what you want just a plain cup of coffee, please! O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder breath I jumped in and said with all the confidence I could muster without compromising my good nature, No, Miss. I dont want any espresso, just a regular cup of coffee. Exactly, she said with a falsetto smile. Most people enjoy our cappuccinos. What kind of cappuccino would you like. Then she rattled off an endless list of cappuccino flavors, most I had never heard of before. About this time, the caffeine deficiency began seeping into my attitude. I think that somewhere in our constitution is the right to order regular coffee at a price that does not compromise the mortgage on my home. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible under the circumstances, listen to me very carefully. I want coffee. Not espresso. Not cappuccino. Just two cups of plain, regular, good old American coffee. Oh, she said in a burst of enlightenment. You want coffee. Why didnt you say so in the first place? There is no satisfaction more fulfilling than finally getting through and arriving at a common understanding. Now, she said in a confidential tone, what flavor coffee do you want? Columbian, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Swiss Mocha . There is only one place I know where I can get exactly what I need. Jesus put it this way; And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13 14 KJV). If you need anything from the Lord, just ask. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

T oday is International Firefighters Day, a time for everyone to recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure their communities and environment are as safe as possible. Its also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their services. Todays column is dedicated to all of them. Hopefully, they will not be put out by it, but will have some laughs. Doggone!In the old days before motor vehicles, a fire wagon was pulled by a team of horses, followed by men running as fast as possible. The sole occupant of the fire wagon was a dog, always a tan mutt with a shape resembling an Irish setter with a buzz cut. The dog was there to steer the wagon, for the horses wouldnt listen to calls from the brigade men, but the dog would hear the call and tug he reins this way and that. It worked so well that fire wagons everywhere had a tan shorthaired setter steering them. One day the mayor of a town wanted to know why such a plain looking dog was driving their fire wagon. What do you mean plain looking? asked the Fire Chief. I mean, replied the mayor, that Ive had reports from all over the country regarding fire wagons. And the reports everywhere state that a dogs been spotted driving the wagon. And thats how Dalmatians become the dog for all fire trucks.Holy Smoke!The convert always put the oldest nuns on the highest floor, figuring that they were closer to heaven that way. Six of these nuns were in their third-floor sleeping quarters when a fire broke out one night. The nuns quickly took off their outfits, tied them together to make a rope, and climbed out of the window After they were safely on the ground and out of the building, a fireman came over to one of the nuns and asked her, Werent you afraid that the habits might have ripped or broke since, they are so old? The nun smiled and replied, Oh, no, dear, we werent worried at all. Dont you know old habits are hard to break? Small fires When a 2-seat private plane crashed into a cemetery in Kentucky the firemen reported recovering over 150 bodies and were still digging. Firefighters use hot line phones. The best way to calm a fire-breathing dragon is to throw water on it. This is sure to cause it to let off some steam. A kaleidoscope is a device for watching automobile accidents. In firefighting terms, CHAOS means the Chiefs Have Arrived On Scene. Old firefighters never die; they just go to blazes. In Dallas a warehouse full of energy drinks caught fire. Firefighters say the fire raged for five hours and then totally crashed. Yesterday I went to a fire sale. What did you get? A smoking jacket and a blazer.The golferAfter a poor golf game, the golfer was walking to the parking lot to get his car when a policeman stopped him and asked, Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago? Yes, the golfer responded. Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course? Yes, I did. How did you know? he asked. Well, said the policeman, Your ball flew out onto the highway and crashed through a drivers windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck. The fire truck couldnt make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it? The golfer thought it over carefully and responded, I think Ill close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb. Pin Puller When the restaurant employees attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire official demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher. Pull the pin like a hand grenade, he explained, then depress the trigger to release the foam. Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in the parking lot. In her nervousness, she forgot to pull the pin. The instructor hinted, Like a hand grenade, remember? In a burst of confidence she pulled the pin and hurled the extinguisher at the blaze.

Softball LeagueIts been an exciting season with unexpected results. Over a month ago, the Great Clips Team seemed to have it all wrapped up with a five-game lead over their closest rival. Things began happening and losses started piling up and their lead dropped to one game. They still had a chance to hold on, but they just couldnt seem to get that big push from the players. The lead dwindled so much that they found themselves in second place with six games to go. Luck seemed to turn around for them, as the Florida Eye team who had jumped into first place by two games, started to have difficulty winning games. Last week, with two games to go, The Great Clips Team began their fight to the top. Thanks to other teams, Florida Eye began losing its lead. Now with one game to go, the Florida Eye and Great Clips teams are tied for first place. This Monday will be the deciding game, and the winner will be the OTOW Softball League Champs. Not far behind was the Dr. Dunn team which hit some rough spots and couldnt get closer than two games from the top .In fourth place, we had the Cebert Wealth team which had a terrible start at the beginning of the league season and were in last place for quite a while until they started putting some wins together and ended up only four games out of first place. The surprising team was the Tee Pee Tire Team, which with their young players, were expected to end up on the top of the league. Somehow, they just couldnt get it together and ended up tied for the basement with the Wise Way Team, which also just couldnt muster up the wins.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY MICHEL NORTHSEA Staff WriterTen years ago, the late Ed McCracken wanted his wife, Irene, to buy one of the beautifully painted horses, but the prices went too high. This year when the horses from the Horse Fever II went on the auction block at Live Oak Plantation, Irene McCracken was once again among the attendees. My goal was to have a painted horse because it is out of the ordinary. And no other place has something of this nature, she said. A friend of hers, Leo Kriziza, knowing of her dream, encouraged her to purchase a horse. He told me to be sure to pick out a pretty one, she recalled. So Irene McCracken chose to bid on World Champ painted by Sharon Crute. Sponsored by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, Crute said the goal illustrated the importance of thoroughbred industry in Florida. One side of the horse shows beautiful farms in Marion County to depict the breeding aspect of the industry. The other side shows the three horses, all bred in Florida, that were the Eclipse Award winner; Awesome Feather, Big Drama and Dubai Majesty. Above the horses are flags representing the United States, Florida, South Korea and Ocalas sister cities in Ireland and Italy. The South Korea flag represents the business relationship involving the sale of Florida-bred horses to the South Korean racing program, Crute said in her artist statement. McCracken paid $12,600 for World Champ. World Champ brought in the second highest dollar figure for the Marion County Cultural Alliance of any horse on the auction block. Clockwork Fury, by artist Mark Hershberger, earned the top figure of $13,000 for the evening. Thirty horses were sold to raise $208,500 for $7,000 each, the average cost of a horse. Proceeds from the evening went to the Marion Cultural Alliance, $92,000, with the rest of the money contributed to the buyers favorite charity. Once she realized that she indeed owned the horse, McCracken was left to ponder on what to do with the horse. I thought about bringing it out here but not enough people would see out here in On Top of the World. I wanted lots of people to see it, she said. So she ended up gifting the horse to the City of Ocala and now World Champ graces the downtown square looking across the street to Harrys outdoor dining area. Local woman buys painted horse, gives it to city for display PHOTO COURTESY OF TAMMYPORTRAITART.COMIrene McCracken stands with her horse on the Ocala Downtown Square. CELEBRITY IN DEATH By J. D. RobbThe best that can be said about this whodunit from J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is its promising start. Lt. Eve Dallas and Det. Delia Peabody are invited to spend quality time at a Hollywood party with actresses playing them in a new movie based on journalist Nadine Fursts book about a famous case Eve solved. Although Peabody is nearly giddy over the prospect, sensible Eve is more likely to roll her eyes: But she has to admit its a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her longlost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the directors luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K. T. had made an embarrassing scene during diner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now shes at the center of a crime scene and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop. But doubling cops and actresses plus an entire production staff and media personnel has its drawbacks. Within 50 pages or so I was drowning in characters. Soon, however, I was sympathizing with Dallas and the slow torment of finding the killer of a woman who had only enemies, a platoon of people shes threatened, blackmailed, insulted or wronged in a dozen different ways. Interviewing all the party people from guests to servants to caterers takes up a significant part of the novel and not a particularly interesting one. In fact, the story line is stalled until lucky hunches and slips of the tongue start producing results. Digging deeply into a suspects background turns up surprising clues. From then on Eve leans on accomplices and induces one to wear a wire. Set in the early 2020s the futuristic touch adds little that I can see. I was scarcely aware of it except for references to household droids. Still, through 30 books involving Dallas and Peabody Robb has amassed plenty of fans. If you are one of them, youll probably like Celebrity in Death. Drowning in characters B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington 000B80C Mon.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY MICHEL NORTHSEA Staff WriterTen years ago, the late Ed McCracken wanted his wife, Irene, to buy one of the beautifully painted horses, but the prices went too high. This year when the horses from the Horse Fever II went on the auction block at Live Oak Plantation, Irene McCracken was once again among the attendees. My goal was to have a painted horse because it is out of the ordinary. And no other place has something of this nature, she said. A friend of hers, Leo Kriziza, knowing of her dream, encouraged her to purchase a horse. He told me to be sure to pick out a pretty one, she recalled. So Irene McCracken chose to bid on World Champ painted by Sharon Crute. Sponsored by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, Crute said the goal illustrated the importance of thoroughbred industry in Florida. One side of the horse shows beautiful farms in Marion County to depict the breeding aspect of the industry. The other side shows the three horses, all bred in Florida, that were the Eclipse Award winner; Awesome Feather, Big Drama and Dubai Majesty. Above the horses are flags representing the United States, Florida, South Korea and Ocalas sister cities in Ireland and Italy. The South Korea flag represents the business relationship involving the sale of Florida-bred horses to the South Korean racing program, Crute said in her artist statement. McCracken paid $12,600 for World Champ. World Champ brought in the second highest dollar figure for the Marion County Cultural Alliance of any horse on the auction block. Clockwork Fury, by artist Mark Hershberger, earned the top figure of $13,000 for the evening. Thirty horses were sold to raise $208,500 for $7,000 each, the average cost of a horse. Proceeds from the evening went to the Marion Cultural Alliance, $92,000, with the rest of the money contributed to the buyers favorite charity. Once she realized that she indeed owned the horse, McCracken was left to ponder on what to do with the horse. I thought about bringing it out here but not enough people would see out here in On Top of the World. I wanted lots of people to see it, she said. So she ended up gifting the horse to the City of Ocala and now World Champ graces the downtown square looking across the street to Harrys outdoor dining area. Local woman buys painted horse, gives it to city for display PHOTO COURTESY OF TAMMYPORTRAITART.COMIrene McCracken stands with her horse on the Ocala Downtown Square. CELEBRITY IN DEATH By J. D. RobbThe best that can be said about this whodunit from J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is its promising start. Lt. Eve Dallas and Det. Delia Peabody are invited to spend quality time at a Hollywood party with actresses playing them in a new movie based on journalist Nadine Fursts book about a famous case Eve solved. Although Peabody is nearly giddy over the prospect, sensible Eve is more likely to roll her eyes: But she has to admit its a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her longlost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the directors luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K. T. had made an embarrassing scene during diner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now shes at the center of a crime scene and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop. But doubling cops and actresses plus an entire production staff and media personnel has its drawbacks. Within 50 pages or so I was drowning in characters. Soon, however, I was sympathizing with Dallas and the slow torment of finding the killer of a woman who had only enemies, a platoon of people shes threatened, blackmailed, insulted or wronged in a dozen different ways. Interviewing all the party people from guests to servants to caterers takes up a significant part of the novel and not a particularly interesting one. In fact, the story line is stalled until lucky hunches and slips of the tongue start producing results. Digging deeply into a suspects background turns up surprising clues. From then on Eve leans on accomplices and induces one to wear a wire. Set in the early 2020s the futuristic touch adds little that I can see. I was scarcely aware of it except for references to household droids. Still, through 30 books involving Dallas and Peabody Robb has amassed plenty of fans. If you are one of them, youll probably like Celebrity in Death. Drowning in characters B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington 000B80C Mon.

Softball LeagueIts been an exciting season with unexpected results. Over a month ago, the Great Clips Team seemed to have it all wrapped up with a five-game lead over their closest rival. Things began happening and losses started piling up and their lead dropped to one game. They still had a chance to hold on, but they just couldnt seem to get that big push from the players. The lead dwindled so much that they found themselves in second place with six games to go. Luck seemed to turn around for them, as the Florida Eye team who had jumped into first place by two games, started to have difficulty winning games. Last week, with two games to go, The Great Clips Team began their fight to the top. Thanks to other teams, Florida Eye began losing its lead. Now with one game to go, the Florida Eye and Great Clips teams are tied for first place. This Monday will be the deciding game, and the winner will be the OTOW Softball League Champs. Not far behind was the Dr. Dunn team which hit some rough spots and couldnt get closer than two games from the top .In fourth place, we had the Cebert Wealth team which had a terrible start at the beginning of the league season and were in last place for quite a while until they started putting some wins together and ended up only four games out of first place. The surprising team was the Tee Pee Tire Team, which with their young players, were expected to end up on the top of the league. Somehow, they just couldnt get it together and ended up tied for the basement with the Wise Way Team, which also just couldnt muster up the wins.

T oday is International Firefighters Day, a time for everyone to recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure their communities and environment are as safe as possible. Its also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their services. Todays column is dedicated to all of them. Hopefully, they will not be put out by it, but will have some laughs. Doggone!In the old days before motor vehicles, a fire wagon was pulled by a team of horses, followed by men running as fast as possible. The sole occupant of the fire wagon was a dog, always a tan mutt with a shape resembling an Irish setter with a buzz cut. The dog was there to steer the wagon, for the horses wouldnt listen to calls from the brigade men, but the dog would hear the call and tug he reins this way and that. It worked so well that fire wagons everywhere had a tan shorthaired setter steering them. One day the mayor of a town wanted to know why such a plain looking dog was driving their fire wagon. What do you mean plain looking? asked the Fire Chief. I mean, replied the mayor, that Ive had reports from all over the country regarding fire wagons. And the reports everywhere state that a dogs been spotted driving the wagon. And thats how Dalmatians become the dog for all fire trucks.Holy Smoke!The convert always put the oldest nuns on the highest floor, figuring that they were closer to heaven that way. Six of these nuns were in their third-floor sleeping quarters when a fire broke out one night. The nuns quickly took off their outfits, tied them together to make a rope, and climbed out of the window After they were safely on the ground and out of the building, a fireman came over to one of the nuns and asked her, Werent you afraid that the habits might have ripped or broke since, they are so old? The nun smiled and replied, Oh, no, dear, we werent worried at all. Dont you know old habits are hard to break? Small fires When a 2-seat private plane crashed into a cemetery in Kentucky the firemen reported recovering over 150 bodies and were still digging. Firefighters use hot line phones. The best way to calm a fire-breathing dragon is to throw water on it. This is sure to cause it to let off some steam. A kaleidoscope is a device for watching automobile accidents. In firefighting terms, CHAOS means the Chiefs Have Arrived On Scene. Old firefighters never die; they just go to blazes. In Dallas a warehouse full of energy drinks caught fire. Firefighters say the fire raged for five hours and then totally crashed. Yesterday I went to a fire sale. What did you get? A smoking jacket and a blazer.The golferAfter a poor golf game, the golfer was walking to the parking lot to get his car when a policeman stopped him and asked, Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago? Yes, the golfer responded. Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course? Yes, I did. How did you know? he asked. Well, said the policeman, Your ball flew out onto the highway and crashed through a drivers windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck. The fire truck couldnt make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it? The golfer thought it over carefully and responded, I think Ill close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb. Pin Puller When the restaurant employees attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire official demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher. Pull the pin like a hand grenade, he explained, then depress the trigger to release the foam. Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in the parking lot.

On Wednesday, April 25, the group formally became a club, setting their meeting dates as the first and third Fridays of every month. Members plan to meet both days at 10 a.m. in the card room of the Clubhouse. On the first Friday, they will take a field trip and on the third Friday, review the photos, have guest speakers or share technical information that will help members not only take pictures but make pictures. The members would like to thank Nancy Frost who came to Cherrywood on Friday, April 13, to give helpful hints on how to organize and go forward with our club. Nancy is a part of the Oak Run Camera Club and her assistance was greatly appreciated. If you would like more information concerning this new club, email Gen at gdowns99@gmail.com. Everyone is welcome to come and join in the fun and educational opportunities of the club. Ladies Luncheon at LogansLogans Steak House is the place to be on Wednesday May 9 as the Ladies Luncheon closes out its season with a farewell to the snowbirds and the sharing of some special memories of luncheons past. The ladies will be at Logans Steak House from noon until about 1:30 where the food is delicious and the conversation stimulating. All of our lovely ladies of Cherrywood are invited to attend this great outing so contact Geri at the office to get information on reservations; transportation and any other questions you might have. Having been a guest at a couple of these luncheons, I can vouch for the fact that its a good time; with good people and of course, good food. Dont miss out. Memorial Day On Wednesday, May 30 beginning at noon, the Veterans Club will hold its Memorial Day Observance to honor the memory of Americas fallen heroes. The National Anthem will be followed by the presentation of the Armed Forces flags by our own Honor Guard. A short speech will follow given by Major Morrey Dean, USA (Ret.) A good old American picnic will follow the service with hot dogs; hamburgers; homemade beans; potato salad and potluck desserts. Lemonade and coffee will be available of course, but everyone is welcome to bring their own beverages. Tickets are only $7 each and include the food and dancing to the music of Rich Becotte all afternoon. You can get your tickets from Geri or from any officer of the Veterans Club. At 2 p.m., the drawing takes place for the Bahamas Cruise. Tickets for the Cruise are only $10 each or three for $20. The winner will get a three day cruise for two on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line including all port taxes; gratuities; and $100 spending money. Raffle Tickets will be available right up until the drawing so take advantage of this chance to win. You need not be present to be a winner and you dont have to be a resident of Cherrywood either. Proceeds go to support the Veterans Club Charities. Please note that nonCherrywood residents are invited to share this service and the picnic that follows. Tickets are available at the clubhouse office between 9 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. Everyone is urged to come out and pay their respects to those who gave their all for this great country. CERT: For EmergenciesCherrywoods Emergency Response Team is your life line now that Hurricane Season is drawing near. In 2004 Florida was hit directly by three separate major hurricanes and this year, because of the warm temperatures and the waters of the Gulf and Atlantic being more heated, could be a repeat of that. Many Ocala residents feel that since we live in the middle of the state away from tidal surges and the coast that we are safe from the damages and life threatening emergencies that these storms bring.

Friday, May 4, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, May 4, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Of course, Obama could honestly say he agrees with Romneys statement about business and government. He too believes government should be businesss ally. Just ask Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric, who chairs his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, and Jim McNerney of Boeing (and formerly of GE), who chairs the Presidents Export Council. Romney and Obamas differences over the precise mix of government and business decisionmaking power should not fool anyone into thinking they have a fundamental disagreement. Once again, the presidential election will present an echo, not a choice. Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 T hrough the years, I have discovered two important facets of husbandship that has stood me in good stead for many years: a vigorous nod of the head and a rhapsodic Yes, dear. Flowers dont hurt either. When our recent visit in Ohio concluded, we headed for the airport. I do not mind traveling, but my least favorite mode is the airplane. The reason being, of course, is the airport itself. In my opinion, someone devised the modern airport to intimidate the average traveler. Arriving at the airport, we immediately headed for the ticket counter where we received our boarding passes. Then we surrendered our luggage to the personnel behind the counter, not knowing if we would ever see that same luggage again in our lifetime. Someday I hope to visit all the places my luggage has seen. Next, we made our way through the security booth. As you know, they do not permit metal through this gate. If a passenger passes through and a buzzer goes off, he is summoned back for guards to examine his personal effects to detect the offensive object. I went through about 17 times. Not until I got down to my underwear did the security personnel determine there must be a defect in the radar detection equipment. (I plan to file my briefs in a Florida court this week.) Finally, we left the security area and I started feeling a little more confident until we came to a big sign over the entryway. My wife and I found little comfort in the words written: Terminal Entrance. Contrary to their friendly little sign, I did, in fact have plans of returning. Our flight plan called for a two hour stopover before arriving at our final destination. Nothing quite compares to spending a free hour or two at an airport. Did I say free? Allow me to recount that opinion. There is absolutely nothing free at an airport. I cannot prove it, but I am sure they have figured out a way to charge for the air we breathe. For instance, a 15 cent cup of coffee can cost in the neighborhood of $17.95. I dont even like visiting that neighborhood. If I lived there, I would move. However, being the good natured, charming individual that I am, it does not take much to make me happy. All I need to allay any stress is a simple cup of coffee. Have you ever noticed how things seem to go a lot easier with a steaming jolt of java? With a full hour to spare at the airport, my wife and I looked for something to occupy our time. Then I espied the perfect diversion. With a mischievous twinkle in my left eye, I looked at my wife and said, Lets get a cup of coffee and relax a while. One thing I can always count on my wife, she knows a good thing when she hears it. Unfortunately, she does not hear it too often from my lips. Walking over to the coffee shop and, being the man, I approached the counter to place our order. I would like two regular coffees, I said with anticipation to the young woman behind the counter. The thing that makes a man a man is that he always knows what he wants. It is that confidence that separates the men from the boys. The young woman looked at me, snapped her chewing gum several times and said in a monotone, Marvelous, you want espresso or cappuccino? No, Miss, I replied as cool and sophisticated as any gentleman you will ever meet. No, Miss. We just want two plain coffees. She looked at me as only a waitress behind a counter can and rattled off names I have never heard before. As best I could understand, they were flavors or kinds of espresso coffee. Finally, when she took a Knowing what you want just a plain cup of coffee, please! O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder breath I jumped in and said with all the confidence I could muster without compromising my good nature, No, Miss. I dont want any espresso, just a regular cup of coffee. Exactly, she said with a falsetto smile. Most people enjoy our cappuccinos. What kind of cappuccino would you like. Then she rattled off an endless list of cappuccino flavors, most I had never heard of before. About this time, the caffeine deficiency began seeping into my attitude. I think that somewhere in our constitution is the right to order regular coffee at a price that does not compromise the mortgage on my home. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible under the circumstances, listen to me very carefully. I want coffee. Not espresso. Not cappuccino. Just two cups of plain, regular, good old American coffee. Oh, she said in a burst of enlightenment. You want coffee. Why didnt you say so in the first place? There is no satisfaction more fulfilling than finally getting through and arriving at a common understanding. Now, she said in a confidential tone, what flavor coffee do you want? Columbian, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Swiss Mocha . There is only one place I know where I can get exactly what I need. Jesus put it this way; And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13 14 KJV). If you need anything from the Lord, just ask. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

RSVP appreciated. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The often skeptical Aries might find that an answer to a question is hard to believe. But check it out before you chuck it out. You might well be surprised at what you could learn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your resolute determination to stick by a position might make some people uncomfortable. But if youre proved right (as I expect you to be), a lot of changes will tilt in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel conflicted between what you want to do and what you should do. Best advice: Honor your obligations first. Then go ahead and enjoy your well-earned rewards. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That financial matter still needs to be sorted out before you can consider any major monetary moves. Pressures ease midweek, with news about a potential career change. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A workplace problem threatens to derail your wellplanned project. But your quick mind should lead you to a solution and get you back on track without too much delay. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An opportunity opens up but could quickly close down if you allow pessimism to override enthusiasm. A trusted friend can offer the encouragement you need. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Youve come through a difficult period of helping others deal with their problems. Now you can concentrate on putting your energy to work on your own projects. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Forget about whos to blame and, instead, make the first move toward patching up a misunderstanding before it creates a rift that youll never be able to cross. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Good news for the travel-loving Sagittarian who enjoys galloping off to new places: That trip you put off will soon be back on your schedule. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A mood change could make the gregarious Goat seek the company of just a few friends. But you charge back into the crowd for weekend fun and games. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A decision you made in good faith could come under fire. Best advice: Open your mind to other possibilities by listening to your challengers point of view. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can avoid being swamped by all those tasks dangling from your line this week by tackling them one by one, according to priority. The weekend brings good news.

bodies of water and these storms can come at us from any direction with life threatening fury. Our Emergency Response Team is a vital part of our protection and preparedness. Among other duties, these volunteers stand ready to risk life and limb providing the Sheriffs Office with damage assessments on the ground; alerting emergency personnel of injuries; providing the power company with real time outages and in many cases, providing badly needed first aid and CPR medical attention. In addition, when communications are knocked out, the licensed ham radio operators are the necessary link to the outside world. Our CERT Team needs volunteers and more. On May 16th at 8:30 in the morning, CERT will meet in the clubhouse card room. Everyone who would like to be a part of this life saving team is urged to attend. In addition, anyone with a special need is especially urged to attend or have a representative attend for you. Special needs include persons with limited mobility that need help evacuating or maneuvering in an emergency; those who are on oxygen; those who have medications that need to be kept refrigerated and any other problem that keeps an individual from securing themselves in an emergency. CERT has forms to be filled out so that their personnel can care for those persons with needs first and foremost in any given situation. The training for our CERT team is excellent; the planning complete; and the concern for their fellow residents above and beyond the call. Support your CERT team. To be an active part of it; if you require more information on preparing for a storm; or if you have any special needs; be sure to contact Dewella Markland, the team leader or David Siegel, the Assistant Team Leader. There is no substitute for readiness; education and training. Garden ClubAt 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, the Garden Club will meet for the last time this season. The members will be touring at least three gardens in Cherrywood Estates but they will look at more if invited. If youve got a garden that you think would be of interest, contact Jay at cherrywoodgardenrs@gamail.c om or call him at 352-8970160. These gardens of interest tours give members of the club new ideas and a new appreciation for the hard work our residents put into their yards. At their last meeting the Garden Club made some changes to their organization. Each month starting in October a different person will act as chairperson and provide the agenda and program for that month. For example, Sandra Brotherhood will host the October Meeting with a trip to Sugar Tree Farms. This promises to be a great outing for all. If you have an interest in the beautiful flowers and shrubs of Florida; if you want ideas on how to make your garden more productive and beautiful or if you just want to share your love of flowers with some new Buds, (groan) the Garden Club is for you. As a footnote, there is a Master Gardners Plant Sale on May 12 at the Agricultural Center on Northeast Jacksonville Road from 8 a.m. until noon. For more information, contact Jay.Cherrywood Democratic Club Open meeting, Friday, May 18. All registered voters are welcome at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Refreshments will be served. This month Dr. Diana Stafford Greene, a candidate for the position of superintendent of schools, will be the guest. The current superintendent is Jim Yancey, who is not seeking re-election after nearly a decade at the helm. Dr. Greene believes that the school system is a vital part of our community. As the largest employer in the area it is major part of Marion Countys economic lifeline. An educated workforce is essential for our future and provides students with an opportunity for a strong foundation for their dreams. It is her pledge and commitment to our community to advance and prepare our young people of this great community of Marion County for the future. To accomplish these goals in these uncertain times our school district needs a common sense approach; experienced leadership and one who is able to deliver results of success. Dr. Greene we believe is the person to do the job. She invites us all to join her on this journey. Dr. Greene will be pleased to answer any questions you may have; so please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation towards their needs you may do so through our secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan your donation will be gratefully appreciated. Voter registration cards are available, so if you know of anyone that is not registered or wishes to change party affiliation, we are able to make the changes. The Cherrywood Democratic Club meets on the third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Harriet Scarpino is president; Ken Beech vice president, 352861-8315.

There are usually major speakers, and that was true this year as President Obama spoke and joked his way through a monologue in front of the room full of journalists. The most telling moment, however, came at the end of Obamas talk. To paraphrase the presidents final joke, he said he had plenty more material, but had to cut it short to get the Secret Service home before its new curfew. That drew a big laugh from the crowd, but the camera panned to two men standing at the side, most assuredly members of the Secret Service. They werent laughing. In fact, their glare at the president could only be described as a scowl. By now, everyone should know what happened with the Secret Service. An advance team in Colombia was reportedly partying with prostitutes, and there was a dispute over payment that made the whole event public. The president wasnt there yet, and was obviously not in danger. Since then, a half dozen or so agents have been fired and rules have been tightened rules that shouldnt be needed for anyone, much less the people charged with protecting the president of the United States. If anyone thinks this was an isolated incident, well, dream on. Something like this didnt just come out of the blue, with a bunch of agents saying, Hey, lets do something weve never done before. Lets party with some girls. Another analysis over the weekend said the incident emphasizes how few women there are in the Secret Service. We havent heard the end of this tale. More accusations have already been made, tougher guidelines have already been imposed on the agents, and it is expected that more heads will roll. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, you must realize how important it is in world affairs for the president, every president, to have top-notch protection when he is out in public. If agents are dreaming about their exploits the week before, that may be hard to do. The president may joke about it, but you have to assume that underneath, hes a little apprehensive. I hope there will be better supervision of the agents in the future, and especially of the advance teams, those who arent directly involved with protection, but who are setting up safety measures.

A t a time when the state university system is struggling with massive cuts, Florida Gov. Rick Scotts decision to sign a bill creating a 12th university is flawed. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been sapped from the Florida university system and now legislators and the governor are creating a new university by splitting USF Polytechnic off from the University of South Florida despite the lack of a demonstrated need or public request to do so. Departing Senate budget chairman JD Alexander has led the charge making the formation of Florida Polytechnic his primary focus. Despite broad opposition, but that hasnt stopped Alexander from wielding his enormous influence to make it happen. Members of both sides of the legislative aisle have blasted the move, calling it a wasteful power play and saying the governor has broken his promise to voters to be fiscally responsible. Initially the university will lack accreditation, which will affect enrollment as the first class of students could well graduate without an accredited degree. This decision weakens the other established state universities and specifically hurts USF as more than $70 million will be transferred to Florida Polytechnic for the construction of a new campus. This is a classic case of a powerful state politician using his influence to drive home a pet project. The creation of a new university is not in Floridas best interest and not something driven by public interest it is driven by the personal interest of one man. Gov. Scott, who campaigned as an outsider, has allowed himself to be drawn in to the insider politics of Tallahassee and, in doing so, is damaging the future of higher education in Florida. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Governor, legislators hurt higher education The not-so-secret services activities LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Away from White House?Recently we hear a lot of negative remarks regarding President Obama's frequent trips so let us look at the facts: During President Obama's first year in office, he spent 26 days away from the White House. President Regan spent 42 days away. G. H. W. bush spent 69 days away. G. Bush 2 spent a total of 147 days away from the White House in his first year. During his two terms in office he spent 477 days at Camp David plus 77 days at his Crawford Ranch In those eight years he had a total including vacation and retreats of 967 days away, which equals 32 percent of his total time in office. So to all President Obama critics, look at the facts and cut him some slack, he is working hard to drag our country out of a recession. John Toner Ocala POW ceremonyOn April 28, the Ocala Police Department held a POW flag raising ceremony. I rolled out of bed early, donned my MCL uniform, and went to the event. I was extremely pleased there was an opening prayer. The Junior ROTC performed with snap and pop, and veterans attending were recognized. I wish to congratulate the Ocala Police Department for a distinguished and tasteful ceremony. Barbara R. Priest Ocala Jim Clark Editor GUEST COLUMN BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen W ith Mitt Romneys sweep of recent primaries, he will almost certainly be President Barack Obamas Republican opponent in November. Romney has vowed to make the economy the chief issue against Obama, and he is sure to portray the president as an enemy of free enterprise in order to draw a contrast with himself. How fit is Romneys claim to be a champion of economic freedom? The former Massachusetts governor and private-equity capitalist speaks often about free enterprise and the need for government to let entrepreneurship pull the economy out of its current doldrums. This sort of rhetoric is common for Republicans, who then proceed to violate economic freedom. President George W. Bush, in a weird Orwellian manner, took this contradiction to its final stage of absurdity when he said during the 2008 financial debacle, Ive abandoned free market principles to save the free market system. For Bush, the freemarket system apparently is not constituted by free-market principles. But if thats the case, what is the system constituted by? Republicans may not typically speak so bluntly, but to most of them the free-market system isnt a set of principles; rather it is an emotional slogan to be spoken, especially as an election approaches. Its a way of saying, Vote for us because the other guys arent good Americans like we are. Romney likes to say, We are only inches away from ceasing to be a free market economy. But that must mean we now have and have had a free-market economy. Does he really mean that? If so, does he agree with Bush that free-market principles were abandoned with the bank bailouts like TARP (which Romney favored) and the GM and Chrysler rescues? Another implication of his position is that the free market was responsible for the housing and financial debacle. Were not likely to hear Romney say this it would concede too much to Obama but its logically implied by Romneys remarks. This position diverges from what free-market advocates think happened. The essential story is this: Low-interest-rate money from the Federal Reserve, aggressive government policies to increase homeownership even among people with bad credit histories or low incomes (or both) and additional government intervention combined to create an unsustainable bubble in the housing industry, which in turn helped increase the fragility of the financial sector. Dubious mortgages became the foundation of widely held securities and derivatives, facilitated by government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a government-licensed rating cartel. Then the bubble burst. Does Romney give even a hint that he understands this? If so, he wouldnt be talking as though the free market currently exists and as though we still have it to lose. Beyond that, Romney expresses his orientation toward political economy when he says, Washington has to become an ally of business, not the opposition of business. A free-market advocate would know this doesnt exhaust the alternatives. Government should be neither an ally nor an opponent of business, because both imply interference with private property and free exchange. This may be harder to see in the case of a business-government alliance. One need only remember that we live in a world of scarcity. If government helps one industry or firm, it must do so by channeling scarce resources away from other uses. This disables the process by which entrepreneurs attempt to devote resources to purposes most favored by consumers. Its a form of government privilege, which many businessmen are all too happy to receive at the expense of others. There is a world of difference between being promarket and being pro-business a distinction that apparently escapes Romney.

His friends have commented on Richs leadership skills. A keen sense of humor and ready smile; are qualities that endear him to others and his confident manner inspires and motivates those around him. Richard is from East Windsor, New Jersey but moved many times between New York City and New Jersey during his career with a private company. He moved to Cherrywood in May of 2001 and has been a vital part of the community ever since. As a young man, Rich worked after graduating from High School at Singer Manufacturing Corporation and Mennen Company as a computer operator. In 1961 Uncle Sam called and Richard was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served for two years. Among his assignments was a tour at 1st Army Headquarters, Governors Island, New York. He worked in computers and made extra money moonlighting on Wall Street a couple of days per week issuing stock certificates. That came to an end when the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred. Following his discharge he went back to work for the Mennen Corporation. In 1969 he wandered into a lounge named Molly Browns and there he met his future bride, Ruth. In 1971 they married and 41 years later, they are still together; still happy and still in love. Ruth serves as secretary to the Veterans Club. They have a daughter, Susan, who lives in Mesa, Arizona. For over 17 years, Rich worked as a facilitator for a private company. He and his partner would acquire small companies that had innovative ideas or a large customer base. Over a period of time, they would consolidate these smaller companies into larger ones making them more efficient and reducing overhead. When the companies were merged, they became more attractive to investors and they would be sold or refinanced to turn a larger profit. Much of the work in this area was facilitated by Rich who enjoyed the friendship and confidence of not only his partners but his coworkers as well. He has carried these qualities over in his personal life. After working his way up in the business world, Rich took a job with Mercer County, New Jersey, as a computer coordinator. He managed and supervised several departments and people as the county converted to high tech equipment for a more efficient operation. His experience in business and his way with people made him the ideal person to perform those duties. Admittedly, Rich found working for the government a little bit more frustrating than working in the private sector. Inefficiency seems to be the hallmark of government operations and turning that around is not easy. After 10 years with the county, Rich retired. Richard serves as treasurer of the Veterans Club and is active in all of their endeavors. Ritz House is just one of the projects that Richard became active in. Putting in long hours and hard work, he helped gather food for the residents and then worked with a few others on remodeling a room to house a worthy veteran. Besides his many duties with the Veterans Club, Rich runs the mens and co-ed pool teams; hosts Trivia night along with Fred OHern; the Kentucky Derby night; and is very prominent in the Fun in the Sun Games. Just about every other function that we have in Cherrywood, Rich will either be there doing something to help out others or leading the way himself. In his spare time, which is very limited, Rich enjoys golfing, bowling and reading. He finds the people of Cherrywood fun to be around and enjoys socializing with them. If he had one wish, it would be greater participation by our residents in the vast number of opportunities that are available to everyone. When you see Rich around the Clubhouse; at Bocce Ball; on Trivia Night or any of the many other functions we have, make sure you stop by and thank him for his service to our country and to our community.

Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel has received some really nice comments from residents on two of our recent trips. On April 19 two buses filled with excited Oak Runners left for Washington, D.C., looking forward to the Smithsonian, the various memorials and beautiful buildings on the Mall. Everyone raved about the excellent hotels and their great breakfasts and even though the weather did not cooperate the tour guides were able to make some changes to accommodate the rain. The Marine Memorial was of special interest and did not disappoint. Comments ranged from beautiful to awe inspiring. It may be that we will have to schedule another trip to DC in the future. The day trip on April 18 to the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach was sold out. Both the Peabody and the show, In The Mood, received very high accolades. This 1940s era musical review included a number of Glen Millers greatest hits like String of Pearls and of course In The Mood. The big band music was as popular with our travelers as it was for all of America during this time in our countrys history. We had 79 travelers depart on April 26 for the much anticipated Northern European Passage Cruise on the Emerald Princess, hosted by our highly experienced hosts, Bob and Cindy Kocher. Everyone was really looking forward to the spring flowers in bloom, especially the azaleas in the Azores and the tulips in Holland. We expect to hear some more great reviews when these travelers return from their 18-day odyssey that also includes Ireland, England, France, Norway and Denmark. Oak Run Author PublishedCurtis D. Ruud of Golf View has just had his third novel published by Infinity Publishing, Inc. A Certain Slant of Light follows Zero at the Bone and That Dreaded First Robin.

On Sunday, April 29, Ocala firefighters responded to a tractor trailer fire at 1:09 p.m., and on arrival quickly extinguished the blaze. The driver of the 2007 Kenworth tractor owned by Burress L.L.C. told fire officials that he noticed smoke from the trailer and pulled over to the side of the interstate. He attempted to use his fire extinguisher; however the flames were too large and he called 911. The tractor, valued at $70,000, was separated from the trailer in an attempt to control the fire, although both were damaged. The trailer contained corn meal which was being transported from Indiana to Miami. The fire is believed to have started in the tractor and extended into the trailer. The vehicle fire also ignited a small grass fire. The incident was placed under control at 1:34 p.m., although firefighters remained on scene almost two hours. There were no injuries. The fire happened at mile marker 348, approximately two miles south of State Road 200 in the southbound lanes. For a time the Florida Highway Patrol had all three lanes blocked southbound, with one line of traffic being allowed to pass on the inside shoulder.

Chad Taylors original script Home Schooled, will be performed by West Port High Schools Thespian troupe at the Insomniac Theatre, May 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. Following the one-act play, students in West Ports acting and musical theatre programs will perform a showcase of scenes, monologues, and musical numbers. The Insomniac Theatre is in downtown Ocala at 1 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Tickets are $10. For reservations call 352-8970477 or go to www.insomniactheatre.com. Home Schooled was written especially for the troupe by Taylor, based on ideas from students in the West Port High School theatre program. The play premiered at West Port High School in November and earned a superior rating at the District XII Thespian Festival held in Gainesville in December. Taylor, a former Thespian at Forest High School, has written numerous one act plays for Thespian troupes to perform, but this is the first time he has partnered with West Port High School. Janet Shelley, West Ports theatre director, has high praise for Taylors dramaturgical skills. Chad participated in a brain-storming session with my advanced acting students, took home a list of seemingly disjointed ideas and came back a few days later with a brilliant, thought-provoking script. The plot concerns a teenage girl named Sarah, who is home schooled by an often-times ludicrous teacher. The play leads the audience through a series of bizarre events, culminating in a final scene that leaves them trying to piece together what happened. Taylor says of the production, I had hoped to create something that would have the same level of quality that West Port has sustained over the years so I had decided to go the route of creating the most challenging piece imaginable. I was able to watch their competition performance and was amazed at the level of talent and professionalism the students brought to the stage. Its a piece that would be tough for a professional company to perform and the students made it look easy. Im proud to be a part of bringing the only original competition piece at this years festival to the stage and I look forward to seeing if this upcoming performances audience reacts to the ending as enthusiastically as the festivals crowd did. West Port troupe to perform Explore Rainbow Springs The UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, UF/IFAS Citrus County Extension Service and Rainbow Springs State Park will hold a Get Out and Explore Rainbow Springs event and optional canoe/kayak paddle on May 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an optional canoe/kayak paddle from 3 to 5 p.m. The event will be at Rainbow Springs State Park, 19158 S.W. 81st Place Road, Dunnellon. On May 16, you have the chance to do more than skim the surface of this unspoiled Florida gem dive into the details at the Get out and Explore event hosted by UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service. Participants will hike the nature trails along the river and learn about the plants and wildlife that surround it. University of Florida research scientists will give water quality demonstrations and other experts will explain how groundwater is connected to springs and rivers.

Shes not as sharp as she used to be very forgetful and confused. Is it just old age or Alzheimers? You dont have a clue and youre not alone. Half of all Americans know someone with Alzheimers, the deadly disease that affects five million of us more women than men. Yet just in time for Mothers Day, in a recent Senior Helpers Alzheimers Quiz taken by more than one thousand people, 67 percent or 2/3 failed (they got fewer than 60 percent of the questions correct)! Thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest providers of in-home senior care, with an office in our area, has launched Senior Gems, a free and revolutionary Alzheimers education program. It assigns each stage of the disease to a gem, like a diamond or ruby, and gives step-by-step instruction so people can navigate every mood and movement of a loved one who is coping with the disease. We have a crisis in America because Alzheimers is a deadly epidemic yet this quiz shows many people still dont know enough about the disease or how to best communicate with a loved one who has it. As our population grows older and lives longer, families will need survival skills to cope through the various stages of the disease and manage the stressful toll it takes on everyone, says Peter Ross, CEO and founder of Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home senior care companies and co-creator of the Senior Gems program. We launched Senior Gems to give caregivers and family members a hands-on guide for education and survival. Take the quiz, Page 4 How much do you know about Alzheimers?

Whether you buy or make your mother a card, get her a bouquet of flowers, box of candy or maybe a nice visit, it will be appreciated by her. Also Armed Forces day is May 19 and Memorial Day is observed on May 28.Feature for this monthSince this will be my last feature I have chosen a unique pair. They are Mandy and Nancy Dennis. Nancy Dennis was born in Nanticoke, Pa. She came to Spruce Creek North with her parents in 1989. Her dad passed away in 1996 and her mom in 2004. She remained in that home ever since. She has a daughter, Debby, in North Carolina and a son, David, in Pennsylvania. Nancy is a registered nurse and works at Ocala West United Methodist Church. After her mom passed away Nancy decided to get a puppy. She chose a Maltese who was born almost 8 years ago and was named Mandy. When she got this puppy she never realized what a treasure she had found. Mandy became a registered therapy and service dog. She travels with Nancy to Munroe Hospital, TimberRidge rehab, assisted living, Hospice, plus many private homes. So they are always together. One remarkable incident happened when they visited a man who had never spoken a word. Before the visit was over, the man spoke a few words to Mandy. Nancy has been writing some very interesting health articles for the SCN newsletter. They are very informative and the residents are enjoying them. She is one talented lady. Mandy has brought so much happiness to so many people. I am not sure who is the lucky lady, Mandy or Nancy? I think it is a little bit of both. Social Updates The April Showers dance was held April 21 with entertainment by Gail. The crowd seemed to have a good time. This is the last dance until the fall. The SCN ice cream social was April 29 and looks like there was tons of ice cream. The next and last event will be the Memorial Day Picnic May 28. At this annual picnic there will be hamburgers, hot dogs, and side dishes plus beverages. Time is 12:30 and entertainment of course. Tickets are required for this picnic. They will be sold May 22 and 23 at the Clubhouse from 1 to 2 p.m. More information is on the SCN bulletin board. Thanks to Cindy Hutchins for all this news.

A friend from On Top of the World sent me this article that was in their paper; Animals This time of the year the weather is beautiful and many residents are taking advantage of it and also letting their canine companions enjoy it too. Please keep in mind though that if you are in a backyard that is not fenced or out walking your dog, it must be on a leash according to the Marion County Leash Ordinance. We ask that you keep your pet away from neighboring houses and lawns. We would hope that all pet owners are courteous enough to do this.
