BRIEFS Operation Honor Wall being launchedOn Memorial Day, many Americans observe Memorial Day by attending ceremonies or visiting cemeteries and memorials. Some fly the flag of the United States at half-staff. This year, a coalition of nonprofit organizations who provide assistance to military personnel, survivors, Veterans and their families are offering another way for Americans to express their appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our nations heroes. On May 10, the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network, a collaboration of 16 nonprofit organizations serving the men and women who have worn our nations uniform launched Operation Honor Wall www.operationhonorwall.org By visiting this virtual wall, grateful Americans can log on and leave a message in honor of family members, loved ones or friends who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. A number of business and elected leaders have joined Operation Honor Wall in an effort to encourage Americans to express their gratitude for those who have served and sacrificed leading up to Memorial Day. The project, led by the Florida based nonprofit organization; VeteransPlus aims to collect 4 to 5 million honor messages from grateful Americans before Memorial Day on May 28th. With celebrities such as Actor Gary Sinise, San Francisco 49ers Kicker David Akers, Actor Dean Cain and Christian recording Artist Matthew West, we hope to recapture the enthusiasm and patriotism of Americans for the more solemn occasion of Memorial Day by providing a means for them to express their appreciation on line, says John Pickens, Executive Director of VeteransPlus.

Allen Jenkins was in a white pickup when Detective Brandon Spillman observed him trying to pull over another car using a strobe light. Spillman attempted to make a traffic stop, but the truck sped away. He went south toward County Road 484 through residential areas, with speeds exceeding 100 mph. Deputies created a blockade of the road with their cars, but the suspect rammed the vehicles and sped away. According to the Sheriffs Office, to prevent injury to the driver, deputies and witnesses, Deputy Yobanny Valdez fired shots at the tires of the truck, causing one to go flat. The driver stopped in the 13200 block of Southwest 65th Circle, but Jenkins refused to get out of the truck. Deputies had to break the drivers window with a baton and pull him out. After being taken to the jail, his breath registered at .17, more than twice the legal limit. According to jail records, the 29year-old Jenkins was accused of fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer with lights and sirens, driving while license suspended, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer (several counts), impersonating an officer, resisting an officer without violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and DUI third offense. His bond is set at more than $50,000. As of Wednesday morning, he was still in the jail. A check of jail records shows previous arrests for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, domestic battery, and a fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer from 2001, when he was arrested at Pine Plaza in the city. At that time he was an 18year-old.

MCSO placed first out of 17 teams representing law enforcement agencies throughout the United States and Canada. Each team has eight members. They are shown above in a local performance last week. Cable going out? Make sure its not thieves If youre watching TV and your cable suddenly goes out, it may not be the fault of the company. Someone may have stolen your cable box. No, not the one that sits by your TV in the house, but the main amplifier outside that takes the signals and processes them to go to your house. A series of thefts of those boxes in at least three counties, Marion, Lake and Sumter, has spread to the Corridor. There were at least two recent thefts in Cherrywood and one in Heath Brook. Most of the thefts have occurred during the overnight and predawn hours, when homeowners would likely be asleep and not watching television. A couple, however, have occurred in daylight. The main vulnerability seems to be Bright House, but Cablevision and Cox Communications may have also been victimized. Anyone who observes or hears suspicious activity in the area of their cable box should immediately call for law enforcement help. Hospice of Marion County has partnered with Interfaith Emergency Services to Fill er Up with items collected during a food and supply drive through May 26. The most needed food items are canned vegetables, spaghetti sauce, canned beans, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, jams/jelly, canned fruit, canned meat and rice/pasta. The most needed hygiene items are shampoo/conditioner, razors/shaving cream, deodorant, bar soap, diapers (all sizes), baby wipes, toilet paper, feminine products, toothbrushes, toothpaste and combs. Donations will be collected at the Hospice of Marion County Thrift Store at Jasmine Square daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hospice hopes to fill pantry 000B7Q9

W hat started as a retail petit theft arrest at Walmart ended with drug charges against a Southwest Ocala woman. Alicia Lorraine Brooks Mosley, 34, of Southwest 151st Lane, was accused of taking an Air Soft gun from off the shelf, then used an old receipt to return the item for money. She also was allegedly observed taking a DVD player and not paying for it. The loss prevention officer stopped her and took her inside. The deputy read her the Miranda warning, then asked if there was anything illegal in her purse. According to the report, she hesitated, then advised there was a straw that was used the night before for snorting drugs. The deputy found the straw and also a clear bag with a white powdery substance, which tested positive for cocaine. She was arrested and taken to the jail where she was charged with misdemeanor petit theft, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and felony possession of cocaine. Her bond was $2,750 and she was released later the same day. Laurine Arnold Holbin, 50, was accused of retail petit theft and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer after an incident at Walmart. She was accused of taking several items which she hid in a box. After checking the name she gave, her identity could not be determined and was arrested for the theft. A fingerprint check revealed her true name. Jose Miguel Rodriguez, 29, of Southwest 31st Avenue, was accused of assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence and assault on a public servant. According to the Sheriffs Office, he attacked an officer at The Centers while the officer was involved in bringing a juvenile to the treatment facility. Rodriguez started a fight outside with the deputy and had to be peppersprayed to subdue him. He later allegedly admitted drinking before the incident.

Retail theft turns into drug arrest C OP SHOP Man arrested in babys deathDetectives arrested Jesus Mata, 24, in connection with the death of baby Ayanna Ross, 11 months. On Wednesday, Feb. 29 Ayanna was transported to the hospital after she was found unresponsive by her family friends, Jesus Mata and Shawna Parker. Doctors discovered Ayanna had a subdural hematoma and was transferred to Shands Hospital where she died. An autopsy determined the cause of death to be blunt trauma and the manor of death was ruled homicide. Detectives determined Mata was responsible for Ayannas injuries. Mata had changed his story several times about how Ayanna got her injuries but ultimately indicated he was caring for the child when she became fussy and he had trouble calming her. Mata told detectives he began throwing the child in the air. At that time, the child fell to the floor, striking her head. Mata then shook the child to snap her out of it. Then, he set her down to rest instead of seeking medical attention. 000B9FZ Airport Transportation Service to all Florida airports and seaports Door to door service On your schedule 24/7 OCALA SMART TRANSPORTATION 352-615-0399 www.ocala-smart-transportation.com The one you know 000BE0D Free Seminar War Time Veterans Many veterans and surviving spouses are unaware that they could be eligible to receive a significant monthly income through the Veterans Administration Aid & Attendance for Assisted Living.

Henry Flagler's vision for passenger and cargo rail service in Florida was achieved through extraordinary effort, cost, and political will at the end of the 19th century. Flagler's Florida East Coast Industries (FECI) developed the railroad which led to the creation of residential communities and resort industries from St. Augustine to Key West. Florida East Coast Industries is responsible for much of the growth Floridians have been witness to over the last century due primarily to the railway opening Florida to vacationers and business opportunities throughout the state. Almost 100 years after its first tracks were laid, Florida East Coast Industries is poised to change the way Floridians think about travel once again, and at no cost to taxpayers. The All Aboard Florida rail project is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, at a cost of over $1 billion, and will link South Florida to Orlando through a 110 mph high-speed rail line to take commuters, vacationers, business travelers, college students, family members, and friends between South and Central Florida on a daily, scheduled, high quality mode of transport. Additional rail lines to Tampa and Jacksonville are planned to be incorporated into the transportation system soon after the main railroad corridor is established and operational. After Gov. Rick Scott rejected more than $2 billion in federal stimulus funding to construct a high-speed Florida rail line, FECI moved forward with their own plan to bring passenger rail service to Florida that does not rely on public subsidies or government funding. FECI will absorb the infrastructure costs and maintain the railroad through their own financial ability not dependent on taxpayer funded handouts.

A member of Troop 125, her ticket was drawn for an album commemorating Americas First Ladies offered by the General Francis Marion Stamp Club in Ocala. The club held a drawing as part of its exhibit at the West Central Florida Councils Discover the World event, held on April 14 at Vanguard High School. Close to 300 area Girl Scouts were on hand to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting in America. In addition to special illustrations and stories about each of the Presidential wives, the album features postage stamps commemorating the Presidents. Teresa, Alicias mom and a teacher at Ocala Springs Elementary School where Alicia is a 4th grader, said that the album is a perfect compliment to next years 5th grade American history class.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com visor lied and told everyone that he had no checked luggage. Just before he took off, the crew stood on the tarmac holding up the supervisors suitcase so he could see it through the window. His bag took the next flight out an hour later. The worst day of his 31-year career came in July of 1989. A tragic crash in Sioux City Iowa left several people dead. Eighteen of the victims caskets arrived at OHare field in Chicago along with their charred luggage. With dignity, their remains were unloaded and escorted to waiting hearses. Following his retirement, Judy and Richard decided to move to the warmth of Florida. After some research, they choose Ocala for its small town atmosphere and access to everything. Eight years ago in March, they moved to Cherrywood to make their home. Richard is very active in the bowling league where he carries a 163 average and has been on winning teams his entire time in the league. First with the Alley Oops and secondly with the Strikers, he has finished in the top three positions for his entire time in the league. You will often see his name with high game or high over average in the bowling section of the Chirp. Competitive by nature, Richard also participates in the Fun in the Sun games. Again, his team has finished in the top three of all the events. He has a first, second and third place medal and will be seeking to keep his streak alive at the next tournament. An avid walker, Richard puts on three miles a day. He strolls along the streets of Cherrywood passing out smiles as he goes. His friendly disposition; willingness to help others; and warm handshake are hallmarks of his personality. Judy and Richard enjoy landscaping their yard; growing tomatos and flowers and decorating their lawn with various light touches of accessories. Their love for the people and facilities of our community make them an asset to our neighborhood and a pleasure to know. From your reporterOops there was a typo in the name of one of the Winners of the Kentucky Derby Hat Contest in the last edition of the Citizen. Under the picture of the winners Trude Smiths name was spelled Truce Smith. Apologies to Trude and again, congratulations on her win.

Schools have low administrative costs At a time when education budgets are being cut and every cost closely questioned, Marion County Public Schools has the lowest administrative cost of all Florida school districts. This indicates more dollars directed into the classroom per student than any other district. As a result, Marions ranking jumped from third last year to first this year. Floridas Department of Education released its annual survey of school district administrative expenditures earlier this month, with an average state-wide cost of $553.31 per Unweighted Full-Time Equivalent (UFTE). Marions cost is $449.30 per UFTE, up just over one percent from last years $441.76. The financial information comes from data transmitted by districts to the Department of Education annually.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A stubborn refusal to go ahead on a project mystifies colleagues who expected more flexibility. But once you explain your position, theyll understand and even applaud you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A relationship seems to be stuck in the same place. Now its up to you, dear Bovine, to decide how far you want it to go and how intense you want it to be. Choose well and choose soon. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship progresses more slowly than you would prefer. Best advice: Insist on a frank and open discussion. What is learned could change minds and, maybe, hearts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its all right to be grateful to a workplace colleague who has done you a good turn. But gratitude shouldnt be a lifelong obligation. The time to break this cycle is now. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Its going to be especially nice to be the King of the Zodiac at this time. A recent money squeeze eases. Plans start to work out, and new friends enter Your Majestys domain. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Before you make a commitment on any level (personal, professional, legal), get all the facts. There might be hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Personal relationships improve. Professional prospects also brighten. A job offer could come through by months end. An old friend seeks to make contact. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your senses detect that something is not quite right about a matter involving a workplace colleague. Best advice: Follow your keen instincts and dont get involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A prospect offers rewards, but it also demands that you assume a great deal of responsibility. Knowing you, youre up to the challenge, so go for it, and good luck. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A favor you did a long time ago is repaid, as a trusted colleague steps in to help you with a suddenly expanded workload. A family member has important news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new job offer could require moving across the country. But before you let your doubts determine your decision, learn more about the potentials involved. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sense of fair play doesnt allow you to rush to judgment about a friend who might have betrayed you. Good! Because all the facts are not yet in. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a romantic nature that allows you to find the best in people. You would excel at poetry and drama. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Thousands of Floridians will now have access to life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings because of new state funding, thanks in large part to the advocacy of American Cancer Society volunteers throughout the state. The Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program will receive $1.24 million under a provision advanced by Rep. Chris Dorworth (R-Lake Mary) and included in Florida's 2012-13 budget signed into law by Governor Rick Scott. This federal program -known in Florida as the Mary Brogan Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program -provides cancer screenings and mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women ages 50 to 64. The program is particularly important in Florida, which ranks third in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and second in the number of breast cancer deaths. Yet, before this year, Florida was one of only seven states that relied solely on federal funding for the program, leaving thousands of women without access these screenings. "By adding state dollars to the program, the Legislature and the Governor are saving more lives," said Dr. Danny Armstrong, chairman of the board for the American Cancer Society's Florida Division. "When we detect breast cancer early, the chance of survival is extremely high. Yet, too many people are dying because they simply can't afford to get screened. That's unacceptable, and this funding begins to change that." American Cancer Society volunteers are advocating for the state to ultimately fund the program at the same level as federal funding for Florida, which currently totals $4.9 million. This year, they urged the legislature to move toward that amount with this initial investment of $1.24 million. They plan to continue to advocate increasing the state spending to match federal levels. In addition to funding breast cancer early detection, the Legislature also supported other key issues in the fight against cancer as advocated for by the American Cancer Society. The Legislature provided $12.15 million for competitive cancer research grants through the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program and the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program, both of which were originally created at the urging of the American Cancer Society. The Legislature also allocated $64.3 million for Florida's tobacco prevention and education program -a program that, in conjunction with other tobacco control policies, has resulted in more than 500,000 fewer smokers. The level of funding for this program is driven by Florida's Constitution because of an effort led by the American Cancer Society, but the Legislature must continue to allocate funding each year. With a network of more than three million volunteers nationwide and 310,000 Florida volunteers, the American Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back. New state funding for breast cancer screening could save lives Golf Parade; Memorial Day Ceremony; Veterans Activities; the Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon; and the Italian Dinner Fundraiser. Additionally, the club supports the Ocala Ritz Veterans Villages and has created and completely furnished two living quarters for homeless veterans. Please note that the club will again be providing a special Memorial Day program to honor our nations heroes. The program will be held at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 28, at the Health and Recreational Building at the flagpole. The OTOW Lions Club is always looking for new members who wish to serve those in need. If interested in becoming a member, please contact PDG Estelle Clark at 352-861-7358 or via e-mail at pdgestelle@yahoo.com. The Lions Club motto (internationally) is simple: We Serve. The OTOW Lions Club does exactly that. Softball LeagueWell, the winter Softball League has finally come, and it was a hard fought battle to the end. The first place team kept changing from week to week, and at one time, it was thought that there was no way to catch up to the Great Clips Team. Time changed that, and it was a run for the top between the Great Clips, Dr. Dunn and Florida Eye teams as they exchanged first place from time to time. The first to fall from the top spot was the Dr. Dunn Team, which just couldn't seem to muster up wind during the latter part of the season and left Great Clips and Florida battle it out. The remaining teams, Cebert Wealth, Wise Way Auto, and Tee Pee Tire couldn't seem to get enough wins to make a move to the top, although at times they did played well within their means. The team most people thought would have a good shot at moving into the top was the Tee Pee Tire team, with their youngest average players, but they were unable to make a move, ending instead in last place. The battle for the top ended on Monday when the Great Clips team finally got their momentum and took over the top spot they had lost, leaving them as the champs for the winter league period. Congratulations to the Great Clips team and it's players! Bowling LeagueThe season is finished and the Snowbirds captured first place, while Osima came in second and the Better Bs were third. Barbara Buecher was the most improved female bowler, and Lacoste Rivers was the most improved male bowler. Other noteworthy achievements for the year by the women were Linda McIntyre, with high average of 159, Hedy Schamal with high scratch game of 242, and Georgie Maguire with high scratch series of 551. The high handicap game of 276 by Judy Shuster and high handicap series of 697 by AJ Smallwood were earned. Among the men, noteworthy achievements include these as follows: Bill Hull, high average of 189; Art Buecher, high scratch gamed of 256; Rick Daddio, high scratch series of 657; Whitney Frye, high handicap game of 300; and Bill Shampine, high handicap series of 747. League members celebrated their efforts at their recent banquet, and they look forward to resuming bowling in September. Anyone who is interested in joining the league at that time should contact Jerry at 873-4327. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 11251 S.W.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 I t was a couple of weeks ago, as I was sitting in a room conducting an interview, that a sudden thought hit me: I was nowhere near the smartest person in the room. In fact, the opposite was probably true. That can be very disconcerting, especially when youre sitting there with three 17-year-olds who are still in high school. What made it so extremely obvious was that these three seniors were also finishing their sophomore years in junior college, and would be graduating with an AA degree before they got their high school diplomas. They were three of the 42 West Port High School seniors who were about to graduate from the College of Central Florida. That means that next school year, theyll each enter college as a junior. As I sat there and listened to them answer questions, the first thing that struck me was their poise. Here they were, sitting with some old guy they had never met before, and they werent the least bit intimidated. They elaborated on each question without being prodded, unlike some people who will give you a two-word answer and wait for the next question. Each of them also spoke well, using perfect grammar, not speaking awkwardly after each phrase, the way so many people do, uh, you know. I knew I was in trouble right off the bat when I asked future plans. One wanted to go into light design and technical theater, and computer engineering; one wanted to study the human mind, and the other wanted to go into international studies and foreign languages. When I went to high school, there was no such thing as technical theater or computer engineering. The human mind was always there, but not many of us wanted to study it we were afraid what wed find. As for foreign languages, I took three years of Spanish, which hasnt helped me a whole lot, although if I struggle enough I can read some basics. As far as speaking it, forget it! There were some other light bulbs that went off in my head as we were talking. One was that West Port High School offers top quality education to those who are willing to work for it, as this trio obviously was. Second, something I already knew, was that there are teachers who are totally dedicated to their students. In this case, it was Ginger Cruze, who is in charge of the advanced placement program, because you could see the emotion in her as she finished watching the interview, knowing that these students would be leaving her after two years of studies. Third, was the feeling that I was seeing the answer to those who are always saying how bad a shape this country will be in when the current crop of young people takes the reins. If these three are representative of those who will be responsible for our country in the future, well, were in pretty good shape. So my thanks to a couple of people, particularly the aforementioned Ginger Cruze, who helped set up the interview with the students, and to Kevin Christian of the Marion County School Board, who first notified us that there were many students about to graduate from CF before high school commencement exercises. And, most importantly, thanks to Gabriela Saenz, Dakota Gardner and Justin Gonzales, whose personality and cooperation made the story possible. If you know any of the 42 grads who successfully completed this program, congratulate them on a job well done. Realize, too, that there is another group waiting to advance to senior class status, so West Port is by no means finished producing some top notch advanced students. As for me, I can take a hint. In the chance that I might want to do a similar interview next year, Ill spend a lot of time reading and studying and trying to recall some of those things I learned back in school. Somehow, though, I think Ill still be at the bottom of the academic list when we go into that room next spring. Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

L ast week we told you that we thought there was too much emphasis on test scores in the Florida education system. Now the state Board of Education has gone to an extreme that for all practical purposes says that the FCAT writing test is a waste of time. The state issued an order changing the passing grade for the writing part of the FCAT, making it easier for students to pass, and therefore graduate. The reason? Too many failed the test as it was currently scored. The logic fails to impress us. Apparently the thought is that if many young people are failing the test, where others in the past have passed, then the test is too tough. So the solution is not to learn why suddenly students cant pass the writing test; the solution is to back off and let fewer students fail, so they can graduate. The writing test is a poor indicator of what students know. It is judged subjectively, unlike subject questions, such as math, that have a right or wrong answer. So the state may finally agree with those who have said for years that this test is unfair. Unfortunately, when young people cant write clear sentences, they have a strike against them in the business world. In this era of phonic abbreviations for words to fit them into the letter limit of Twitter, correct spelling and proper grammar have gone out the window. The inability to write properly can have an effect on things such as resumes, final papers in college, etc. The state should make an effort to find out what the common mistakes were in the essays that originally caused to many to fail, and take corrective steps. But in the future, the state should make the essay part of the exam informative and not part of the final grade. Of course, it doesnt seem to matter. After all, if you dont like the results, you can always change the standards in the middle of the school year. Thats what happened here. Better still, scrap the FCAT as constituted altogether. Let individual districts set their own standards for graduation. Maybe then teachers can teach the children what they need to know to succeed, not what they need to know to pass the test. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Standardized tests: another farce Not the smartest one in the classroom Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Libertarians: Pro-American or Un-American While reading the guest column last week in the Citizen, I wondered what the "Freedom magazine and the Future of Freedom Foundation really represented. If you want to research it as I did, you will find that it's nothing more than a Libertarian, anti-everything, group which supports nothing except themselves. Many of course have heard of the Libertarians. It's one thing to support a political party, but another thing to support nothing but yourselves. They apparently would have us revert to the Isolationist country we were between WWI and WWII. But were we? If you will remember what Admiral Yamamoto said after the Pearl Harbor attack, it you don't, it was, "I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant," and boy, did they. The article in question seems to take anyone and everything but themselves to task for just about everything that's happened in the last 40 years. No one or any group is safe from their ranting. The straw that broke the camel's back for me, was the comment that President Obama was safe in the Situation Room in the White House when Osama bin Laden was killed. Now, where in the heck should he be, leading the Seal Team that took bin Laden down? If your answer is yes, you don't know much about our Constitution or our government. The President is Commander and Chief, not an in the trenches guy. No president has been or ever will be on the battlefield. Some have led armies but long before they became president. Remember civilians run the military not the other way around. Then the comment where he said we killed half a million children in Iraq due to economic sanctions against Iraq. I wonder who was keeping score for them. Could it be those Libertarians, who have never served in the military, just sitting in their offices counting heads of the dead in some grotesque way? It's who can they blame scenario. They blame presidents Bill Clinton, Carter, national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, Secretary of State Madeline Albright, the Bushes, and President Obama. The only person they left out is the janitor at the Supreme Court. It's easy to sit back and criticize others, and I've done it myself, PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 Showcase of StarsOak Run's great collection of talented performers known as Showcase of Stars will present their next program on Saturday, May 26, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove.

Hondaland COO, Greg Rothfeld, not only donated all the prizes but also played in the tournament. Thanks, Greg.

Everyone enjoyed the delicious hamburgers, pulled pork and salads but of course the Royal Oaks homemade chocolate chip cookies were a big hit!

but I did serve my country during a war, but to randomly try to take down about everyone whose trying to keep this country safe is very un-American, and that's an understatement. It sounds to me as if the Libertarians look upon our service men and women as no more than statistics. As my father used to say, "you can't tell about where you ain't been." This seems to say it all about the Libertarians. If all that un-American activities by the Libertarians could be channeled to helping our country, they just might make a difference and put themselves in a positive light. War is hell. Seeing your buddies die is terrible, having one's head come off in your hands is horrible, but to hear some radical group criticize what's being done by our great men and women who serve our country, is horrendous. At least President Obama is trying to bring our troops home form Afghanistan. Groups who want to criticize this country must be part of this country first. Contribute, don't criticize, serve don't dodge. When you point one finger at others you have four pointing at yourself. The Future of Freedom Foundation seems to be more the future for ourselves foundation. Come on you people get a life. Yes, the Constitution guarantees Freedom of Speech, but remember where you live and if you don't appreciate it you could go to say, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan or Yemen. Then you would find out what it's really like to have your free speech taken away from you and maybe killed for voicing those opinions. Bill Ford Oak RunAn Ungodly socialist America? Any question we are headed in that direction? France just elected a Socialist as president. He represents the far left, unions, redistribution of wealth and the continuance of social programs that will bankrupt the country. He wants to put the tax burden on the producers of wealth so they can support the entitlement society that believes they have the right to take from producers what they make for themselves. Pay close attention, this sounds just like our Democratic Party! Sadly, it appears nearly half of Americans now share that belief, thinking the government should provide for them, that they are entitled, deserving to be provided for by other peoples money. This is further supported by the direct actions of the so called Occupy/99 percent crowd, who are endorsed by Obama, Pelosi and other prominent Democrats as well as the Communist, Socialist and Nazi parties. They, along with similar groups, promote the end of capitalism, having a socialist/communist country, and are very destructive. In addition to desecrating our American flag, they commit violence against other citizens and the willful destruction of property. The damage they have caused exceeds 10 million dollars at a cost to taxpayers of over 19 million. The Democrats and liberal media have called them a civic group just like the Tea Parties. Not even close, since the Tea Parties have committed no crimes, have not cost taxpayers money nor caused any damage to others or their property. Its called having class, loving our country, our flag and our God. If this isnt bad enough for our country, we now have our president endorsing same sex marriage! This is a direct attack on the Word of God and it scares me as to just how far our acceptance has come. I was taught years ago that what one generation rejects, the next may tolerate, then the next may accept. Just how far do we think God will allow us to move away from him till he says enough is enough? The far left liberals want God removed from every aspect of our American way of life. Every believer in America should be praying for our country to turn back to God, seek his face and to forgive us for not taking a firmer stand for him. If we dont turn back to God, America will soon fall, its as simple as that! Which America do you want? I certainly dont want Obamas! Wayne Rackley Ocala Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 F inally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in Athens, Greece, scientists have found a good laugh is a calorie burner not to be ignored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine giggling can burn off the number of calories found in a medium square of chocolate. These scientists discovered a way to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their findings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. Giggle the pounds away with Laughtercise This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, where does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my weight loss program has been a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories! My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, my regimen has not produced the results I desired. Just a few years ago, I exercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, which has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more out of a person than realized at the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk of money in paying my taxes this year. Every day I exercise my right to remain silent when the Gracious Mistress of O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE10 T here has been a change in the speaker for the Upstate New York Club's celebration of Memorial Day to which all Oak Runners are invited. Andrea Sawyer of the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) will replace Dan Nevins. Andrea is an incredible champion for the WWP She regularly speaks to Congress, advocating for service people wounded in post 9/11 military conflicts. Her efforts are reality based in every sense of the word. Her own husband suffers a 100 percent disability from posttraumatic stress disorder and she is his primary caregiver. She doubles her lobbying efforts to focus on wounded warriors and their caregivers. In a moving presentation, she will share her personal experiences and her legislative work on both these fronts. The WWP will be the club charity event for 2012. Andrea will speak at a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommy's Bar-bque bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Cost for members is $18 and guests, $20. Tickets will continue to be available until May 21 and may be purchased by calling Sandy Mantel at 352873-9112. OMI Club The OMI Club held its April meeting at the Orchid Club. "Name That Tune" was a lot of fun for all who attended. A prize of $20 each was awarded to the winning team. Our next event will be "A Beach Party Picnic" on June 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Orchid Club. The menu will be hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad and dessert. Ice tea and lemonade will be available. You may bring any other beverage of your choice. There will be music by Ron for your dancing and listening pleasure. We will also be having a "Corn Hole" contest. This is a fun and easy game to play. Prizes will be awarded to winning team, plus we will have our usual 50/50. Sign up for the contest will be at ticket sales. We could use some men to help setting up. If you can help, please call Barb Songer at 352-291-8766. Ticket sales for the beach party will be on May 24 from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club lobby. Cost is $13 for members and $15 for guests. This is our last event for the summer. The next affair will be our annual Chili Cook-Off to be held Oct. 4 followed by our Christmas party on Dec. 6 We are still looking for officers for 2013. Outgoing officers will give anyone interested all the help they need to get started. Canine Club Members are reminded that the club now meets every other month, with outings planned for the months we do not meet. The next meeting will be Thursday, May 24, at the Island Club at 7 p.m. Our guest speaker for this month's meeting is Dr. Trish Kallenbach, a holistic veterinarian. She will be discussing subjects such as titer testing, diet, chiropractic treatment and also the over use of vaccines and medications. There will be a 50/50 drawing and refreshments will be served. It was wonderful to see our membership out in force at the last meeting. The room was practically full and we hope to see another good turnout this month. Our trip to the Humane Society Shelter was equally well represented. We are playing catch up on our annual dues. Dues are $5 per member and will be used in part to support canine organizations in our area. Please plan to pay your dues this month if you are in arrears.

I n early May, Micanopy usually has a Doc Hollywood event to recall and celebrate the theme of the movie that was shot 21 years ago in their town. Our own Pun Alley activities take us further back into history when Hollywood performers actually got married and performers started their careers in the theater.The harried married A Hollywood producer got in early one morning to find his wife awake and raging. Where have you been? she demanded. Well, the producer explained, we previewed my new picture, and then I got to talking to the leading lady, a very lovely person. We went to Romanoffs, had a few drinks, and then she said shed like me to see her to her apartment. Well, you know how it is; one thing led to another, and here I am. Now, dont you lie to me, you horrible creature! screamed the wife. I know youve been out all night playing poker with the boys! PaybackA prominent businessman fell in love with an actress and decided to marry her, but he wasnt sure he could trust her so he employed a detective agency to report on her life. The report read, The lady has an excellent reputation. Her past is without a blemish and she has a circle of impeccable friends. The only breath of scandal is that lately shes been seen a great deal in the company of a businessman of doubtful reputation. Marriage shortsSome Hollywood kiddies were playing house. Said one, Were going to have a big family. I want three fathers and two mothers. The official Hollywood drink is marriage on the rocks. The sentimental Hollywood star wanted to get divorced in the same dress in which her mother got divorced. The actress was introducing her eighth husband to her daughter by her first husband, Darling, I want you to meet your new daddy. Say something to him. All right, the kid obeyed. Daddy, will you please sign your name in my visitors book? A producer was smitten by a beautiful young actress. He asked for her hand in marriage. She didnt quite grasp what he had said. He added, You dont understand. I want you to be the mother of my children. The actress asked, Really? How many do you have? One Hollywood kid is very proud. At the last PTA meeting he won the prize for having the most parents there. Friend: Say, theres a bunch of people outside waiting to see you. Among them is a bishop who says he married you some time ago. Actress: Gee! Im practically certain I never married a bishop. PottedA Hollywood starlet, who was more beautiful than brainy, visited friends one day and asked to be shown through their new greenhouse. Pausing a moment before one plant, she asked its name. It belongs to the Begonia family, was the hosts answer. Oh, gushed the beauty, how nice of you to look after it while theyre away. PerformersDirector: Have you ever had any stage experience? Applicant: Well, I had my leg in a cast once. When the unemployed actor got a job with a demolition company, he finally brought down the house. Some claim that movies would be better if they shot fewer films and more actors. Please, doctor, the ham actor pleaded with the psychiatrist, Im developing a terrible inferiority complex. Im beginning to think that there are other people as good as me. Hollywood is where the people accept you for what youre not. He was an actor who really moved the audience. Everybody left at the end of the first act. This actor spent three years in stock, but the cattle finally objected. One female star gives full credit to her wardrobe. She says, My clothes are always magnificent. Ive been a hit with them, on and off, for twenty years. When two performers meet, its usually an I for an I. Mother, why are the men in the front baldheaded? They bought their tickets from scalpers, my child. Great Scott! How could you stand up in court and say youre the greatest living actor of all time? the agent asked his client. The ham pulled himself up to his full five-foot-two, I was under oath. I didnt want to commit perjury. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the Parsonage is giving me a piece of her mind. Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good tradeoff. Now, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard, exercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each day provides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly where to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. A good guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more than just personal benefits. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. Why didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supreme health in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not waking up in the morning is no laughing matter. When I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in the mirror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps start the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good for a laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at least for the person who takes the time to see the funny side of the street. All those people on early morning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in anyones day. If they only knew how insignificant their opinions are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. They give, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, laugh-aminute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I am engaged in my Laughtercise for the day. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22).The Rev. James L.

RELIGION ON CONAN DOYLE: Or, the Whole Art of Storytelling By Michael Dirda Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize winning book reviewer for the Washington Post, has written a brief, eloquent love letter to Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle. In it he laments Doyles neglected works that have been overshadowed by the popular stories of the Baker Street sleuth: Today, much of Conan Doyles substantial oeuvre his bibliography runs to more than 700 pages suffers readerly neglect because of the widespread misconception that he only rose above the conventions of his time when he wrote about the dynamic duo of Baker Street. Dirda recalls the spell Doyle cast on him when he was 10-years -old and mesmerized by The Hound of Baskervilles. In fact, his admiration for the Victorian era author would direct his own career as a writer. Although Dirda concentrates mostly on the neglected works, he does touch on the author as a man who throughout his packed life never passed up the chance to test his own mettle. This self-imposed challenge would have him reporting on insurrecting dervishes in Egypt and joining the battlefields of the Boer Wars where he encountered an epidemic of enteric fever. A trained ophthalmologist, he preferred writing stories to treating eye diseases. An indefatigable British subject he never questioned whether colonialism oppressed the indigenous people. An idealist with old-fashioned virtues he saw the supreme function of literature as a means to inspire men to be brave, courteous, stoic, self-controlled and sportsmanlike. Yet his iron devotion to duty didnt make him a stick in the mud. True to his invalid wife, he waited ten years until her death to unite with the love of his life the beautiful Jean Leckie. Dirda may not persuade many of us to delve more deeply into Doyles canon, but he does remind us of the drawing power of Holmes gaslit world. Sherlock observes, reasons, and always deduces correctly as the astonished Watson inevitably asks, How on earth did you know that? Interesting Note: Photographs of Arthur Conan Doyle reveal an uncanny likenessnot to Sherlock Holmes but rather to the loyal Dr. Watson.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or is making a contribution to the quality of life of our active community. This week the spotlight shines on Richard Whitworth. Richard was born and spent his early years in East Saint Louis, Illinois. When he was just 4 years old, his father died. His mother remarried when he was in Junior High and the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. It was there that he and his two sisters and two brothers completed their educations. Richard graduated from John Marshall High School. A little over 50 years ago, Richard met a man at his local church. As luck would have it, the man had a daughter named Judy and apparently, he liked Richard enough to introduce the pair. The rest as they say is history. Judy and Richard just celebrated 49 years of marriage. For the early years of their marriage, they resided in Cleveland as Richard worked on the fight line of United Airlines. An economic slump hit the area and he faced a lay off. Rather than be out of work, Richard and Judy took advantage of an offer by the airline to move to Chicago. Working the baggage handling crew in the Windy City was both rewarding and challenging. Chicago is notorious for its vicious weather and frigid winters. In all kinds of snow, sleet, heat, and rain, Richard was out on the line with his crew loading and unloading cargo from departing and arriving planes. The work was not without its rewards in spite of the elements and harsh working conditions. Apparently people who work under less than perfect conditions develop an unusual sense of humor. Richard related some of the practical jokes that he and the crew played on unsuspecting people and even supervisors. One such incident took place when a supervisor was leaving for a conference. Aware of the pranks that Richard and the baggage handlers were into, the super-Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com F riday the 18th is Comedy Night at Cherrywood. Mark Alan will be performing with his baffling magic tricks and unique sense of humor. There are still tickets available for both shows so contact Geri right away if you would like to attend. A friendly reminder; there will be no tables to sit at. Chairs will be arranged in theater style but light snacks will be served on the patio prior to each show. Thats a great perk. Show times are 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 for the 6 p.m. show and 7:45 for the 8 p.m. performance. Bring your tickets and your sense of humor then enjoy a great evening of live entertainment. The raffle prizes of dinner for two at Outback Steakhouse and the entertainment is sponsored by Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management so the tickets are free. Accordion ClubOn Wednesday the 23rd at 5:30, the Cherrywood Accordion Club meets to bring you top notch musical entertainment. Dick Richards hosts this event that features numerous musicians and accordion players of every level of achievement. The Clubhouse fills early for this entertaining and fun time so plan to be there on time to guarantee a seat. Admission is free so bring your friends and family to the concert like atmosphere, where great tunes and smiles abound. Memorial DayMemorial Day will be celebrated on the actual Memorial Day; May 30 at noon. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will host this observance and picnic to follow. Our Color Guard will present the American Flag for the National Anthem followed by a salute to the Armed Forces. Former Ocala Police Chief Morrey Deen, Major, U.S. Army (Ret.) will give a brief keynote address followed by the traditional playing of Taps. Immediately after the service, the grills will fire up to cook hamburgers; hot dogs; home made beans and potato salad. Tickets are only $7 per person and this includes coffee or lemonade in addition to the food. Everyone is encouraged to bring a potluck dessert. All are welcome to bring their beverage of choice. At 2 p.m., the much anticipated drawing will be held for the Bahamas Cruise. Remember, you dont need to be present to win or even be a resident of Cherrywood to participate. Tickets are just $10 each or three for $20. Purchase your picnic tickets from Geri in the office. Dont miss out on the opportunity to Honor our Fallen Heroes and share in the fellowship and friendly atmosphere of the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities.In Shape with Debra RiveraCherrywood is indeed fortunate to have Debra Rivera as our physical fitness instructor.

Garden Club judgingThe Garden Club will be holding their judging for Gardens of Distinction in the next few days. Do you have a garden that catches the eye? Do you have a neighbor with a beautiful garden? This is your chance to contact the Garden Club and have you or your neighbor considered for an award. There are three categories of judging; Natural, Formal and Lawn. Two winners will be chosen in each classification and a plaque will be given to the owner. This plaque will be displayed on the lawns of the winners for the entire season giving well deserved recognition to the home owners for their hard work and artistic displays. For consideration in the contest, contact Fred OHern at 352-598-0037 before the 23rd of May and invite the judging committee to your residence or that of a friend or neighbor. The Garden Club will be taking a break for the summer but will resume their meetings on Oct. 9. 100 Days of Summer PartiesOur celebration of 100 Days of Summer kicks off on June 9 with a Country/Western theme and the excellent entertainment of Ken Jackson.

You can sit back, relax and enjoy the great music of Kenny or dance to his up beat tempos. Everyone has a good time and this event is sponsored by Cherrywood Management so it is free to Cherrywood residents.

Dont forget to pick up their guest passes when you stop by the office to pick up your guest tickets. Trivia at CherrywoodOnce again Fred OHern and Rich Hurley will be putting up questions on the big screen at the clubhouse to challenge and tease the brains of our residents. This month the subjects will be Current Sports; Entertainment and History; but some other items get thrown in for variety and fun. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Deb Riveras stretch yoga class. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD PAGE13 Everyone divides into teams of three or four people and armed with a pencil and an answer sheet; they try their luck at winning the prize. If you dont have enough people for a team, not to worry; just come and youll be assigned one. Because of the nature of the questions and the wording, everyone has a pretty equal chance to win. Trivia is fun, exciting and a genuine good time. Bring your favorite snacks and beverages; pay $1 to enter and join with your teammates in an evening of excitement. The games begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23. All of the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only are you having a good time, youre helping a worthy cause Family CaregiversFor those of you in our community that have the responsibility for the care of a loved one in Marion County, please be aware of a new program being offered by the Marion Senior Services Department.

Guest speakers and other professionals will give you helpful information that will lessen your burden and keep you aware of the services that are available to you. Ladies LuncheonOn Wednesday, May 9, our ladies held their final luncheon of the season at Logans Steakhouse. The group enjoyed great food and even better conversation as they discussed the seasons past events and their hopes for the future. A spontaneous energy was evident at the gathering that promises to keep the Ladies Luncheon an active part of Cherrywoods social life in the years to come. We wish a safe summer to our snow birds and look forward to next fall when the ladies will be reunited. Knitting & CrochetingEvery Friday at 1 p.m. in the Clubhouse library room, our residents gather to share their artistic abilities in knitting and crocheting. Everyone, including beginners, is welcome to come and join this friendly group as they create toys; hats; sweaters; shawls and many other items. Most of the garments are donated to various charities here in Marion County and the club has received numerous awards in recognition of their contributions. Remember, if you have yarn, patterns, needles or anything else that might be helpful to this worthy group, please donate it at the office. Help the Knitting & Crochet Club help others. More Fun at CherrywoodHave you ever been bored? Well theres no excuse at Cherrywood as we have an abundance of activities and diversions to choose from. Here are just a few of the fun and interesting activities that are available but seldom seen in this column. Mah-Jongg Tuesdays at 1 p.m. in the card room of the clubhouse. An ancient game of strategy mixed with a little luck. Fascinating to learn and play. Quilters Tuesdays at 10 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. True artisans weaving their craft as have generations past, making beautiful designs. Dominos Every Monday at 6 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. You might have played this game as a child but the versions played here are even more exciting and challenging. Hand & Foot Wednesdays at 6 p.m., where else, the card room of the Clubhouse. Come and join the fun as you hope for a good hand and try to get off on the right foot. Pass the Ace Saturdays at 6 p.m. you guessed it, in the Clubhouse card room. This game I know nothing about so Ill have to attend a session in the near future. Im sure it is nothing like pass the apple. Ping Pong Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m.; no not in the card room, but in the Clubhouse itself. Its a good time and good exercise for all.

PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD PAGE13 Everyone divides into teams of three or four people and armed with a pencil and an answer sheet; they try their luck at winning the prize. If you dont have enough people for a team, not to worry; just come and youll be assigned one. Because of the nature of the questions and the wording, everyone has a pretty equal chance to win. Trivia is fun, exciting and a genuine good time. Bring your favorite snacks and beverages; pay $1 to enter and join with your teammates in an evening of excitement. The games begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23. All of the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only are you having a good time, youre helping a worthy cause Family CaregiversFor those of you in our community that have the responsibility for the care of a loved one in Marion County, please be aware of a new program being offered by the Marion Senior Services Department.

Guest speakers and other professionals will give you helpful information that will lessen your burden and keep you aware of the services that are available to you. Ladies LuncheonOn Wednesday, May 9, our ladies held their final luncheon of the season at Logans Steakhouse. The group enjoyed great food and even better conversation as they discussed the seasons past events and their hopes for the future. A spontaneous energy was evident at the gathering that promises to keep the Ladies Luncheon an active part of Cherrywoods social life in the years to come. We wish a safe summer to our snow birds and look forward to next fall when the ladies will be reunited.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or is making a contribution to the quality of life of our active community. This week the spotlight shines on Richard Whitworth. Richard was born and spent his early years in East Saint Louis, Illinois. When he was just 4 years old, his father died. His mother remarried when he was in Junior High and the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. It was there that he and his two sisters and two brothers completed their educations. Richard graduated from John Marshall High School. A little over 50 years ago, Richard met a man at his local church. As luck would have it, the man had a daughter named Judy and apparently, he liked Richard enough to introduce the pair. The rest as they say is history. Judy and Richard just celebrated 49 years of marriage. For the early years of their marriage, they resided in Cleveland as Richard worked on the fight line of United Airlines. An economic slump hit the area and he faced a lay off. Rather than be out of work, Richard and Judy took advantage of an offer by the airline to move to Chicago. Working the baggage handling crew in the Windy City was both rewarding and challenging. Chicago is notorious for its vicious weather and frigid winters. In all kinds of snow, sleet, heat, and rain, Richard was out on the line with his crew loading and unloading cargo from departing and arriving planes. The work was not without its rewards in spite of the elements and harsh working conditions. Apparently people who work under less than perfect conditions develop an unusual sense of humor. Richard related some of the practical jokes that he and the crew played on unsuspecting people and even supervisors. One such incident took place when a supervisor was leaving for a conference. Aware of the pranks that Richard and the baggage handlers were into, the super-Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com F riday the 18th is Comedy Night at Cherrywood. Mark Alan will be performing with his baffling magic tricks and unique sense of humor. There are still tickets available for both shows so contact Geri right away if you would like to attend. A friendly reminder; there will be no tables to sit at. Chairs will be arranged in theater style but light snacks will be served on the patio prior to each show. Thats a great perk. Show times are 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 for the 6 p.m. show and 7:45 for the 8 p.m. performance. Bring your tickets and your sense of humor then enjoy a great evening of live entertainment. The raffle prizes of dinner for two at Outback Steakhouse and the entertainment is sponsored by Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management so the tickets are free. Accordion ClubOn Wednesday the 23rd at 5:30, the Cherrywood Accordion Club meets to bring you top notch musical entertainment. Dick Richards hosts this event that features numerous musicians and accordion players of every level of achievement. The Clubhouse fills early for this entertaining and fun time so plan to be there on time to guarantee a seat. Admission is free so bring your friends and family to the concert like atmosphere, where great tunes and smiles abound. Memorial DayMemorial Day will be celebrated on the actual Memorial Day; May 30 at noon. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will host this observance and picnic to follow. Our Color Guard will present the American Flag for the National Anthem followed by a salute to the Armed Forces. Former Ocala Police Chief Morrey Deen, Major, U.S. Army (Ret.) will give a brief keynote address followed by the traditional playing of Taps. Immediately after the service, the grills will fire up to cook hamburgers; hot dogs; home made beans and potato salad. Tickets are only $7 per person and this includes coffee or lemonade in addition to the food. Everyone is encouraged to bring a potluck dessert. All are welcome to bring their beverage of choice. At 2 p.m., the much anticipated drawing will be held for the Bahamas Cruise. Remember, you dont need to be present to win or even be a resident of Cherrywood to participate. Tickets are just $10 each or three for $20. Purchase your picnic tickets from Geri in the office. Dont miss out on the opportunity to Honor our Fallen Heroes and share in the fellowship and friendly atmosphere of the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities.In Shape with Debra RiveraCherrywood is indeed fortunate to have Debra Rivera as our physical fitness instructor.

I n early May, Micanopy usually has a Doc Hollywood event to recall and celebrate the theme of the movie that was shot 21 years ago in their town. Our own Pun Alley activities take us further back into history when Hollywood performers actually got married and performers started their careers in the theater.The harried married A Hollywood producer got in early one morning to find his wife awake and raging. Where have you been? she demanded. Well, the producer explained, we previewed my new picture, and then I got to talking to the leading lady, a very lovely person. We went to Romanoffs, had a few drinks, and then she said shed like me to see her to her apartment. Well, you know how it is; one thing led to another, and here I am. Now, dont you lie to me, you horrible creature! screamed the wife. I know youve been out all night playing poker with the boys! PaybackA prominent businessman fell in love with an actress and decided to marry her, but he wasnt sure he could trust her so he employed a detective agency to report on her life. The report read, The lady has an excellent reputation. Her past is without a blemish and she has a circle of impeccable friends. The only breath of scandal is that lately shes been seen a great deal in the company of a businessman of doubtful reputation. Marriage shortsSome Hollywood kiddies were playing house. Said one, Were going to have a big family. I want three fathers and two mothers. The official Hollywood drink is marriage on the rocks. The sentimental Hollywood star wanted to get divorced in the same dress in which her mother got divorced. The actress was introducing her eighth husband to her daughter by her first husband, Darling, I want you to meet your new daddy. Say something to him. All right, the kid obeyed. Daddy, will you please sign your name in my visitors book? A producer was smitten by a beautiful young actress. He asked for her hand in marriage. She didnt quite grasp what he had said. He added, You dont understand. I want you to be the mother of my children. The actress asked, Really? How many do you have? One Hollywood kid is very proud. At the last PTA meeting he won the prize for having the most parents there. Friend: Say, theres a bunch of people outside waiting to see you. Among them is a bishop who says he married you some time ago. Actress: Gee! Im practically certain I never married a bishop. PottedA Hollywood starlet, who was more beautiful than brainy, visited friends one day and asked to be shown through their new greenhouse. Pausing a moment before one plant, she asked its name. It belongs to the Begonia family, was the hosts answer. Oh, gushed the beauty, how nice of you to look after it while theyre away. PerformersDirector: Have you ever had any stage experience? Applicant: Well, I had my leg in a cast once. When the unemployed actor got a job with a demolition company, he finally brought down the house. Some claim that movies would be better if they shot fewer films and more actors. Please, doctor, the ham actor pleaded with the psychiatrist, Im developing a terrible inferiority complex. Im beginning to think that there are other people as good as me. Hollywood is where the people accept you for what youre not. He was an actor who really moved the audience. Everybody left at the end of the first act. This actor spent three years in stock, but the cattle finally objected. One female star gives full credit to her wardrobe. She says, My clothes are always magnificent. Ive been a hit with them, on and off, for twenty years. When two performers meet, its usually an I for an I. Mother, why are the men in the front baldheaded? They bought their tickets from scalpers, my child. Great Scott! How could you stand up in court and say youre the greatest living actor of all time? the agent asked his client. The ham pulled himself up to his full five-foot-two, I was under oath. I didnt want to commit perjury. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the Parsonage is giving me a piece of her mind. Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good tradeoff. Now, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard, exercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each day provides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly where to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. A good guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more than just personal benefits. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. Why didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supreme health in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not waking up in the morning is no laughing matter. When I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in the mirror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps start the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good for a laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at least for the person who takes the time to see the funny side of the street. All those people on early morning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in anyones day. If they only knew how insignificant their opinions are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. They give, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, laugh-aminute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I am engaged in my Laughtercise for the day. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22).The Rev. James L.

These students will learn Gods Promises: God is with you, God cares about you, God gives you what you need, God saves you and God answers you. They will see God at work in the lives of the Old Testament and New Testament as Bible characters realize Gods promises are for them too. Amid the swaying palm trees, exotic wildlife and welcoming sunshine the students will learn about these promises through the games, songs, crafts, and bible stories while enjoying the tasty snacks. Registration for vacation Bible school is available during the month of June, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4 p.m. at the church office. The program planners are also looking for students in the 6th grade and older plus some adults to volunteer and assist the teachers.

Congregation Beth Israel Congregation Beth Israel of Ocala announces its affiliation with the Reconstructionist Jewish Federation. The 75 member Ocala-based Jewish faith community joins more than 100 other communities in the U.S., Canada and abroad in promoting liberal Judaism and in viewing the faith as a civilization, rather than just a religion, encompassing history, language, art, music, land and literature as envisioned by the founder of the movement, Rabbi Mordechai Kaplan. Congregation Beth Israel warmly invites those on a Jewish spiritual path to experience the joy of a Reconstructionist service. Intermarried couples, families and individuals are encouraged to join. The congregation has a Hebrew School and an active Sisterhood. Starting in August, the community will welcome its part-time rabbi, Karen Allen. A student from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College will be leading High Holiday services in the fall. Rabbi Allen will conduct Shabbat services once a month following the fall festivals.

RELIGION ON CONAN DOYLE: Or, the Whole Art of Storytelling By Michael Dirda Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize winning book reviewer for the Washington Post, has written a brief, eloquent love letter to Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle. In it he laments Doyles neglected works that have been overshadowed by the popular stories of the Baker Street sleuth: Today, much of Conan Doyles substantial oeuvre his bibliography runs to more than 700 pages suffers readerly neglect because of the widespread misconception that he only rose above the conventions of his time when he wrote about the dynamic duo of Baker Street. Dirda recalls the spell Doyle cast on him when he was 10-years -old and mesmerized by The Hound of Baskervilles. In fact, his admiration for the Victorian era author would direct his own career as a writer. Although Dirda concentrates mostly on the neglected works, he does touch on the author as a man who throughout his packed life never passed up the chance to test his own mettle. This self-imposed challenge would have him reporting on insurrecting dervishes in Egypt and joining the battlefields of the Boer Wars where he encountered an epidemic of enteric fever. A trained ophthalmologist, he preferred writing stories to treating eye diseases. An indefatigable British subject he never questioned whether colonialism oppressed the indigenous people. An idealist with old-fashioned virtues he saw the supreme function of literature as a means to inspire men to be brave, courteous, stoic, self-controlled and sportsmanlike. Yet his iron devotion to duty didnt make him a stick in the mud. True to his invalid wife, he waited ten years until her death to unite with the love of his life the beautiful Jean Leckie. Dirda may not persuade many of us to delve more deeply into Doyles canon, but he does remind us of the drawing power of Holmes gaslit world. Sherlock observes, reasons, and always deduces correctly as the astonished Watson inevitably asks, How on earth did you know that? Interesting Note: Photographs of Arthur Conan Doyle reveal an uncanny likenessnot to Sherlock Holmes but rather to the loyal Dr. Watson.

but I did serve my country during a war, but to randomly try to take down about everyone whose trying to keep this country safe is very un-American, and that's an understatement. It sounds to me as if the Libertarians look upon our service men and women as no more than statistics. As my father used to say, "you can't tell about where you ain't been." This seems to say it all about the Libertarians. If all that un-American activities by the Libertarians could be channeled to helping our country, they just might make a difference and put themselves in a positive light. War is hell. Seeing your buddies die is terrible, having one's head come off in your hands is horrible, but to hear some radical group criticize what's being done by our great men and women who serve our country, is horrendous. At least President Obama is trying to bring our troops home form Afghanistan. Groups who want to criticize this country must be part of this country first. Contribute, don't criticize, serve don't dodge. When you point one finger at others you have four pointing at yourself. The Future of Freedom Foundation seems to be more the future for ourselves foundation. Come on you people get a life. Yes, the Constitution guarantees Freedom of Speech, but remember where you live and if you don't appreciate it you could go to say, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan or Yemen. Then you would find out what it's really like to have your free speech taken away from you and maybe killed for voicing those opinions. Bill Ford Oak RunAn Ungodly socialist America? Any question we are headed in that direction? France just elected a Socialist as president. He represents the far left, unions, redistribution of wealth and the continuance of social programs that will bankrupt the country. He wants to put the tax burden on the producers of wealth so they can support the entitlement society that believes they have the right to take from producers what they make for themselves. Pay close attention, this sounds just like our Democratic Party! Sadly, it appears nearly half of Americans now share that belief, thinking the government should provide for them, that they are entitled, deserving to be provided for by other peoples money. This is further supported by the direct actions of the so called Occupy/99 percent crowd, who are endorsed by Obama, Pelosi and other prominent Democrats as well as the Communist, Socialist and Nazi parties. They, along with similar groups, promote the end of capitalism, having a socialist/communist country, and are very destructive. In addition to desecrating our American flag, they commit violence against other citizens and the willful destruction of property. The damage they have caused exceeds 10 million dollars at a cost to taxpayers of over 19 million. The Democrats and liberal media have called them a civic group just like the Tea Parties. Not even close, since the Tea Parties have committed no crimes, have not cost taxpayers money nor caused any damage to others or their property. Its called having class, loving our country, our flag and our God. If this isnt bad enough for our country, we now have our president endorsing same sex marriage! This is a direct attack on the Word of God and it scares me as to just how far our acceptance has come. I was taught years ago that what one generation rejects, the next may tolerate, then the next may accept. Just how far do we think God will allow us to move away from him till he says enough is enough? The far left liberals want God removed from every aspect of our American way of life. Every believer in America should be praying for our country to turn back to God, seek his face and to forgive us for not taking a firmer stand for him. If we dont turn back to God, America will soon fall, its as simple as that! Which America do you want? I certainly dont want Obamas! Wayne Rackley Ocala Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 F inally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in Athens, Greece, scientists have found a good laugh is a calorie burner not to be ignored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine giggling can burn off the number of calories found in a medium square of chocolate. These scientists discovered a way to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their findings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. Giggle the pounds away with Laughtercise This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, where does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my weight loss program has been a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories! My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, my regimen has not produced the results I desired. Just a few years ago, I exercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, which has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more out of a person than realized at the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk of money in paying my taxes this year. Every day I exercise my right to remain silent when the Gracious Mistress of O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE10 T here has been a change in the speaker for the Upstate New York Club's celebration of Memorial Day to which all Oak Runners are invited. Andrea Sawyer of the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) will replace Dan Nevins. Andrea is an incredible champion for the WWP She regularly speaks to Congress, advocating for service people wounded in post 9/11 military conflicts. Her efforts are reality based in every sense of the word. Her own husband suffers a 100 percent disability from posttraumatic stress disorder and she is his primary caregiver. She doubles her lobbying efforts to focus on wounded warriors and their caregivers. In a moving presentation, she will share her personal experiences and her legislative work on both these fronts. The WWP will be the club charity event for 2012. Andrea will speak at a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommy's Bar-bque bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Cost for members is $18 and guests, $20. Tickets will continue to be available until May 21 and may be purchased by calling Sandy Mantel at 352873-9112. OMI Club The OMI Club held its April meeting at the Orchid Club. "Name That Tune" was a lot of fun for all who attended. A prize of $20 each was awarded to the winning team. Our next event will be "A Beach Party Picnic" on June 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Orchid Club. The menu will be hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad and dessert. Ice tea and lemonade will be available. You may bring any other beverage of your choice. There will be music by Ron for your dancing and listening pleasure. We will also be having a "Corn Hole" contest. This is a fun and easy game to play. Prizes will be awarded to winning team, plus we will have our usual 50/50. Sign up for the contest will be at ticket sales. We could use some men to help setting up. If you can help, please call Barb Songer at 352-291-8766. Ticket sales for the beach party will be on May 24 from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club lobby. Cost is $13 for members and $15 for guests. This is our last event for the summer. The next affair will be our annual Chili Cook-Off to be held Oct. 4 followed by our Christmas party on Dec. 6 We are still looking for officers for 2013. Outgoing officers will give anyone interested all the help they need to get started. Canine Club Members are reminded that the club now meets every other month, with outings planned for the months we do not meet. The next meeting will be Thursday, May 24, at the Island Club at 7 p.m. Our guest speaker for this month's meeting is Dr. Trish Kallenbach, a holistic veterinarian. She will be discussing subjects such as titer testing, diet, chiropractic treatment and also the over use of vaccines and medications. There will be a 50/50 drawing and refreshments will be served. It was wonderful to see our membership out in force at the last meeting. The room was practically full and we hope to see another good turnout this month. Our trip to the Humane Society Shelter was equally well represented. We are playing catch up on our annual dues. Dues are $5 per member and will be used in part to support canine organizations in our area. Please plan to pay your dues this month if you are in arrears.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 I t was a couple of weeks ago, as I was sitting in a room conducting an interview, that a sudden thought hit me: I was nowhere near the smartest person in the room. In fact, the opposite was probably true. That can be very disconcerting, especially when youre sitting there with three 17-year-olds who are still in high school. What made it so extremely obvious was that these three seniors were also finishing their sophomore years in junior college, and would be graduating with an AA degree before they got their high school diplomas. They were three of the 42 West Port High School seniors who were about to graduate from the College of Central Florida. That means that next school year, theyll each enter college as a junior. As I sat there and listened to them answer questions, the first thing that struck me was their poise. Here they were, sitting with some old guy they had never met before, and they werent the least bit intimidated. They elaborated on each question without being prodded, unlike some people who will give you a two-word answer and wait for the next question. Each of them also spoke well, using perfect grammar, not speaking awkwardly after each phrase, the way so many people do, uh, you know. I knew I was in trouble right off the bat when I asked future plans. One wanted to go into light design and technical theater, and computer engineering; one wanted to study the human mind, and the other wanted to go into international studies and foreign languages. When I went to high school, there was no such thing as technical theater or computer engineering. The human mind was always there, but not many of us wanted to study it we were afraid what wed find. As for foreign languages, I took three years of Spanish, which hasnt helped me a whole lot, although if I struggle enough I can read some basics. As far as speaking it, forget it! There were some other light bulbs that went off in my head as we were talking. One was that West Port High School offers top quality education to those who are willing to work for it, as this trio obviously was. Second, something I already knew, was that there are teachers who are totally dedicated to their students. In this case, it was Ginger Cruze, who is in charge of the advanced placement program, because you could see the emotion in her as she finished watching the interview, knowing that these students would be leaving her after two years of studies. Third, was the feeling that I was seeing the answer to those who are always saying how bad a shape this country will be in when the current crop of young people takes the reins. If these three are representative of those who will be responsible for our country in the future, well, were in pretty good shape. So my thanks to a couple of people, particularly the aforementioned Ginger Cruze, who helped set up the interview with the students, and to Kevin Christian of the Marion County School Board, who first notified us that there were many students about to graduate from CF before high school commencement exercises. And, most importantly, thanks to Gabriela Saenz, Dakota Gardner and Justin Gonzales, whose personality and cooperation made the story possible. If you know any of the 42 grads who successfully completed this program, congratulate them on a job well done. Realize, too, that there is another group waiting to advance to senior class status, so West Port is by no means finished producing some top notch advanced students. As for me, I can take a hint. In the chance that I might want to do a similar interview next year, Ill spend a lot of time reading and studying and trying to recall some of those things I learned back in school. Somehow, though, I think Ill still be at the bottom of the academic list when we go into that room next spring. Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

L ast week we told you that we thought there was too much emphasis on test scores in the Florida education system. Now the state Board of Education has gone to an extreme that for all practical purposes says that the FCAT writing test is a waste of time. The state issued an order changing the passing grade for the writing part of the FCAT, making it easier for students to pass, and therefore graduate. The reason? Too many failed the test as it was currently scored. The logic fails to impress us. Apparently the thought is that if many young people are failing the test, where others in the past have passed, then the test is too tough. So the solution is not to learn why suddenly students cant pass the writing test; the solution is to back off and let fewer students fail, so they can graduate. The writing test is a poor indicator of what students know. It is judged subjectively, unlike subject questions, such as math, that have a right or wrong answer. So the state may finally agree with those who have said for years that this test is unfair. Unfortunately, when young people cant write clear sentences, they have a strike against them in the business world. In this era of phonic abbreviations for words to fit them into the letter limit of Twitter, correct spelling and proper grammar have gone out the window. The inability to write properly can have an effect on things such as resumes, final papers in college, etc. The state should make an effort to find out what the common mistakes were in the essays that originally caused to many to fail, and take corrective steps. But in the future, the state should make the essay part of the exam informative and not part of the final grade. Of course, it doesnt seem to matter. After all, if you dont like the results, you can always change the standards in the middle of the school year. Thats what happened here. Better still, scrap the FCAT as constituted altogether. Let individual districts set their own standards for graduation. Maybe then teachers can teach the children what they need to know to succeed, not what they need to know to pass the test. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Standardized tests: another farce Not the smartest one in the classroom Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Libertarians: Pro-American or Un-American While reading the guest column last week in the Citizen, I wondered what the "Freedom magazine and the Future of Freedom Foundation really represented. If you want to research it as I did, you will find that it's nothing more than a Libertarian, anti-everything, group which supports nothing except themselves. Many of course have heard of the Libertarians. It's one thing to support a political party, but another thing to support nothing but yourselves. They apparently would have us revert to the Isolationist country we were between WWI and WWII. But were we? If you will remember what Admiral Yamamoto said after the Pearl Harbor attack, it you don't, it was, "I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant," and boy, did they. The article in question seems to take anyone and everything but themselves to task for just about everything that's happened in the last 40 years. No one or any group is safe from their ranting. The straw that broke the camel's back for me, was the comment that President Obama was safe in the Situation Room in the White House when Osama bin Laden was killed. Now, where in the heck should he be, leading the Seal Team that took bin Laden down? If your answer is yes, you don't know much about our Constitution or our government. The President is Commander and Chief, not an in the trenches guy. No president has been or ever will be on the battlefield. Some have led armies but long before they became president. Remember civilians run the military not the other way around. Then the comment where he said we killed half a million children in Iraq due to economic sanctions against Iraq. I wonder who was keeping score for them. Could it be those Libertarians, who have never served in the military, just sitting in their offices counting heads of the dead in some grotesque way? It's who can they blame scenario. They blame presidents Bill Clinton, Carter, national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, Secretary of State Madeline Albright, the Bushes, and President Obama. The only person they left out is the janitor at the Supreme Court. It's easy to sit back and criticize others, and I've done it myself, PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 Showcase of StarsOak Run's great collection of talented performers known as Showcase of Stars will present their next program on Saturday, May 26, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Thousands of Floridians will now have access to life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings because of new state funding, thanks in large part to the advocacy of American Cancer Society volunteers throughout the state. The Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program will receive $1.24 million under a provision advanced by Rep. Chris Dorworth (R-Lake Mary) and included in Florida's 2012-13 budget signed into law by Governor Rick Scott. This federal program -known in Florida as the Mary Brogan Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program -provides cancer screenings and mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women ages 50 to 64. The program is particularly important in Florida, which ranks third in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and second in the number of breast cancer deaths. Yet, before this year, Florida was one of only seven states that relied solely on federal funding for the program, leaving thousands of women without access these screenings. "By adding state dollars to the program, the Legislature and the Governor are saving more lives," said Dr. Danny Armstrong, chairman of the board for the American Cancer Society's Florida Division. "When we detect breast cancer early, the chance of survival is extremely high. Yet, too many people are dying because they simply can't afford to get screened. That's unacceptable, and this funding begins to change that." American Cancer Society volunteers are advocating for the state to ultimately fund the program at the same level as federal funding for Florida, which currently totals $4.9 million. This year, they urged the legislature to move toward that amount with this initial investment of $1.24 million. They plan to continue to advocate increasing the state spending to match federal levels. In addition to funding breast cancer early detection, the Legislature also supported other key issues in the fight against cancer as advocated for by the American Cancer Society. The Legislature provided $12.15 million for competitive cancer research grants through the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program and the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program, both of which were originally created at the urging of the American Cancer Society. The Legislature also allocated $64.3 million for Florida's tobacco prevention and education program -a program that, in conjunction with other tobacco control policies, has resulted in more than 500,000 fewer smokers. The level of funding for this program is driven by Florida's Constitution because of an effort led by the American Cancer Society, but the Legislature must continue to allocate funding each year. With a network of more than three million volunteers nationwide and 310,000 Florida volunteers, the American Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back. New state funding for breast cancer screening could save lives Golf Parade; Memorial Day Ceremony; Veterans Activities; the Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon; and the Italian Dinner Fundraiser. Additionally, the club supports the Ocala Ritz Veterans Villages and has created and completely furnished two living quarters for homeless veterans. Please note that the club will again be providing a special Memorial Day program to honor our nations heroes. The program will be held at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 28, at the Health and Recreational Building at the flagpole. The OTOW Lions Club is always looking for new members who wish to serve those in need.

The OTOW Lions Club does exactly that. Softball LeagueWell, the winter Softball League has finally come, and it was a hard fought battle to the end. The first place team kept changing from week to week, and at one time, it was thought that there was no way to catch up to the Great Clips Team. Time changed that, and it was a run for the top between the Great Clips, Dr. Dunn and Florida Eye teams as they exchanged first place from time to time. The first to fall from the top spot was the Dr. Dunn Team, which just couldn't seem to muster up wind during the latter part of the season and left Great Clips and Florida battle it out. The remaining teams, Cebert Wealth, Wise Way Auto, and Tee Pee Tire couldn't seem to get enough wins to make a move to the top, although at times they did played well within their means. The team most people thought would have a good shot at moving into the top was the Tee Pee Tire team, with their youngest average players, but they were unable to make a move, ending instead in last place. The battle for the top ended on Monday when the Great Clips team finally got their momentum and took over the top spot they had lost, leaving them as the champs for the winter league period. Congratulations to the Great Clips team and it's players! Bowling LeagueThe season is finished and the Snowbirds captured first place, while Osima came in second and the Better Bs were third. Barbara Buecher was the most improved female bowler, and Lacoste Rivers was the most improved male bowler. Other noteworthy achievements for the year by the women were Linda McIntyre, with high average of 159, Hedy Schamal with high scratch game of 242, and Georgie Maguire with high scratch series of 551. The high handicap game of 276 by Judy Shuster and high handicap series of 697 by AJ Smallwood were earned. Among the men, noteworthy achievements include these as follows: Bill Hull, high average of 189; Art Buecher, high scratch gamed of 256; Rick Daddio, high scratch series of 657; Whitney Frye, high handicap game of 300; and Bill Shampine, high handicap series of 747. League members celebrated their efforts at their recent banquet, and they look forward to resuming bowling in September. Anyone who is interested in joining the league at that time should contact Jerry at 873-4327. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 11251 S.W.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A stubborn refusal to go ahead on a project mystifies colleagues who expected more flexibility. But once you explain your position, theyll understand and even applaud you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A relationship seems to be stuck in the same place. Now its up to you, dear Bovine, to decide how far you want it to go and how intense you want it to be. Choose well and choose soon. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship progresses more slowly than you would prefer. Best advice: Insist on a frank and open discussion. What is learned could change minds and, maybe, hearts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its all right to be grateful to a workplace colleague who has done you a good turn. But gratitude shouldnt be a lifelong obligation. The time to break this cycle is now. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Its going to be especially nice to be the King of the Zodiac at this time. A recent money squeeze eases. Plans start to work out, and new friends enter Your Majestys domain. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Before you make a commitment on any level (personal, professional, legal), get all the facts. There might be hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Personal relationships improve. Professional prospects also brighten. A job offer could come through by months end. An old friend seeks to make contact. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your senses detect that something is not quite right about a matter involving a workplace colleague. Best advice: Follow your keen instincts and dont get involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A prospect offers rewards, but it also demands that you assume a great deal of responsibility. Knowing you, youre up to the challenge, so go for it, and good luck. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A favor you did a long time ago is repaid, as a trusted colleague steps in to help you with a suddenly expanded workload. A family member has important news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new job offer could require moving across the country. But before you let your doubts determine your decision, learn more about the potentials involved. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sense of fair play doesnt allow you to rush to judgment about a friend who might have betrayed you. Good! Because all the facts are not yet in. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a romantic nature that allows you to find the best in people. You would excel at poetry and drama. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com A special club anniversary and sports achievements constitute thiss weeks OTOW Happenings. Lions Club On May 8, the On Top of the World Lions Club celebrated its 25th Charter Anniversary. The club was chartered in 1987 with 20 members, and the Charter President was Lion Roscoe Murphy; the Ocala Lions Club was the sponsoring club. This very special event was held at the Ocala Hilton Hotel. Following a delicious meal, Past District 35-L Governor Estelle Clark of the OTOW Lions Club introduced current District Governor Jerry Skufe, who, in turn, introduced the guest speaker, Past International Director (PID) Judge Haynes H. Townsend. PID Judge Townsend stressed the importance of the work Lions Clubs throughout the world do, and he highlighted the many contributions made by the OTOW Lions Club members to those whom they serve. He also presented the club with two letters of congratulations from the Lions Club International and the Brasilia Award. Additionally, Lion Marty Schley received the Diabetes Award and Lion Dawn Frantz received the prestigious Lion of the Year Award. Master of Ceremonies Karl Kaufmann (Ocala Hilton Hotel) introduced the various club members as they provided the audience with a special presentation of Blast from the Past music (karaoke style, in costume), performed by the following members: I Will Follow Him (from Sister Act): Mother Superior-PDG Estelle Clark & Her NunsLions Carol DeYoung, Dawn Frantz, Ginny Redden I Believe (Frankie Lane): Lion President John Johnson Alexanders Rag Time Band (Andrew Sisters): Lions Joan Greve, Dawn Frantz, and Ginny Redden) Soul Man (The Blues Brothers): PDG Estelle Clark and Lion Robert Frantz Ill be Seeing You (Billie Holiday): Lion Joan Greve To honor our military, Its a Grand Old Flag was performed, starring the entire Lions Club cast, flag bearers, and Lions Donna Stocker and Darlene Schimelfanick. Flag bearers were as follows: American Flag, Lion Robert Frantz; Army, Lion Steven Snowman; Marine, Lion Ralph Mills; Navy, PDG John Redden; Air Force, Lion Richard Spahn; Coast Guard, Lion Ginny Redden; US Merchant Marine, Lion Kenneth Greve. Lion Sandy Deffler, escorted by Lion Edward Michelson, gave a stirring rendition of God Bless the USA (Proud to be an American), and the entire cast presented When Johnny Comes Marching Home and the Stars and Stripes Forever. The OTOW Lions supports the following charities: Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF); Florida Lions Foundation; Florida Lions Eye Bank; Florida Lions Guide Dogs; Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence (LPCCI); Conklin Center for Blind; Florida Lions Sight Van; Florida Center for the Blind; Interfaith/Food for Kids Backpack program; and KidsSight.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com visor lied and told everyone that he had no checked luggage. Just before he took off, the crew stood on the tarmac holding up the supervisors suitcase so he could see it through the window. His bag took the next flight out an hour later. The worst day of his 31-year career came in July of 1989. A tragic crash in Sioux City Iowa left several people dead. Eighteen of the victims caskets arrived at OHare field in Chicago along with their charred luggage. With dignity, their remains were unloaded and escorted to waiting hearses. Following his retirement, Judy and Richard decided to move to the warmth of Florida. After some research, they choose Ocala for its small town atmosphere and access to everything. Eight years ago in March, they moved to Cherrywood to make their home. Richard is very active in the bowling league where he carries a 163 average and has been on winning teams his entire time in the league. First with the Alley Oops and secondly with the Strikers, he has finished in the top three positions for his entire time in the league. You will often see his name with high game or high over average in the bowling section of the Chirp. Competitive by nature, Richard also participates in the Fun in the Sun games. Again, his team has finished in the top three of all the events. He has a first, second and third place medal and will be seeking to keep his streak alive at the next tournament. An avid walker, Richard puts on three miles a day. He strolls along the streets of Cherrywood passing out smiles as he goes. His friendly disposition; willingness to help others; and warm handshake are hallmarks of his personality. Judy and Richard enjoy landscaping their yard; growing tomatos and flowers and decorating their lawn with various light touches of accessories. Their love for the people and facilities of our community make them an asset to our neighborhood and a pleasure to know. From your reporterOops there was a typo in the name of one of the Winners of the Kentucky Derby Hat Contest in the last edition of the Citizen. Under the picture of the winners Trude Smiths name was spelled Truce Smith. Apologies to Trude and again, congratulations on her win.

Schools have low administrative costs At a time when education budgets are being cut and every cost closely questioned, Marion County Public Schools has the lowest administrative cost of all Florida school districts. This indicates more dollars directed into the classroom per student than any other district. As a result, Marions ranking jumped from third last year to first this year. Floridas Department of Education released its annual survey of school district administrative expenditures earlier this month, with an average state-wide cost of $553.31 per Unweighted Full-Time Equivalent (UFTE). Marions cost is $449.30 per UFTE, up just over one percent from last years $441.76. The financial information comes from data transmitted by districts to the Department of Education annually. UFTE is based on official student numbers determined by counts taken in October and February of each year. Given this number, Marion is ranked as the 16th largest school district in Florida. The results also consider general fund and special revenue funds. The summary is required by the Educational Funding Accountability Act. $ 6 9 5 $ 6 9 5 $ 695 GARAGE SCREEN DOORS O PTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES CRC058138 000BFWQ 465-4629 1 6 x 7 S L I D I N G 1 6 x 7 S L I D I N G 16 x 7 SLIDING G A R A G E S C R E E N D O O R G A R A G E S C R E E N D O O R GARAGE SCREEN DOOR Acrylic & Glass WINDOWS C ustom made for your screen room Starting at * *Installation may vary.

Henry Flagler's vision for passenger and cargo rail service in Florida was achieved through extraordinary effort, cost, and political will at the end of the 19th century. Flagler's Florida East Coast Industries (FECI) developed the railroad which led to the creation of residential communities and resort industries from St. Augustine to Key West. Florida East Coast Industries is responsible for much of the growth Floridians have been witness to over the last century due primarily to the railway opening Florida to vacationers and business opportunities throughout the state. Almost 100 years after its first tracks were laid, Florida East Coast Industries is poised to change the way Floridians think about travel once again, and at no cost to taxpayers. The All Aboard Florida rail project is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, at a cost of over $1 billion, and will link South Florida to Orlando through a 110 mph high-speed rail line to take commuters, vacationers, business travelers, college students, family members, and friends between South and Central Florida on a daily, scheduled, high quality mode of transport. Additional rail lines to Tampa and Jacksonville are planned to be incorporated into the transportation system soon after the main railroad corridor is established and operational. After Gov. Rick Scott rejected more than $2 billion in federal stimulus funding to construct a high-speed Florida rail line, FECI moved forward with their own plan to bring passenger rail service to Florida that does not rely on public subsidies or government funding. FECI will absorb the infrastructure costs and maintain the railroad through their own financial ability not dependent on taxpayer funded handouts.

A member of Troop 125, her ticket was drawn for an album commemorating Americas First Ladies offered by the General Francis Marion Stamp Club in Ocala. The club held a drawing as part of its exhibit at the West Central Florida Councils Discover the World event, held on April 14 at Vanguard High School. Close to 300 area Girl Scouts were on hand to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting in America. In addition to special illustrations and stories about each of the Presidential wives, the album features postage stamps commemorating the Presidents. Teresa, Alicias mom and a teacher at Ocala Springs Elementary School where Alicia is a 4th grader, said that the album is a perfect compliment to next years 5th grade American history class. Stamp Club President, Don Parsells (Spruce Creek Preserve) drew attention to the clubs youth outreach mission and expressed pleasure in being able to make the presentation.

W hat started as a retail petit theft arrest at Walmart ended with drug charges against a Southwest Ocala woman. Alicia Lorraine Brooks Mosley, 34, of Southwest 151st Lane, was accused of taking an Air Soft gun from off the shelf, then used an old receipt to return the item for money. She also was allegedly observed taking a DVD player and not paying for it. The loss prevention officer stopped her and took her inside. The deputy read her the Miranda warning, then asked if there was anything illegal in her purse. According to the report, she hesitated, then advised there was a straw that was used the night before for snorting drugs. The deputy found the straw and also a clear bag with a white powdery substance, which tested positive for cocaine. She was arrested and taken to the jail where she was charged with misdemeanor petit theft, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and felony possession of cocaine. Her bond was $2,750 and she was released later the same day. Laurine Arnold Holbin, 50, was accused of retail petit theft and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer after an incident at Walmart. She was accused of taking several items which she hid in a box. After checking the name she gave, her identity could not be determined and was arrested for the theft. A fingerprint check revealed her true name. Jose Miguel Rodriguez, 29, of Southwest 31st Avenue, was accused of assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence and assault on a public servant. According to the Sheriffs Office, he attacked an officer at The Centers while the officer was involved in bringing a juvenile to the treatment facility. Rodriguez started a fight outside with the deputy and had to be peppersprayed to subdue him. He later allegedly admitted drinking before the incident.

On Wednesday, Feb. 29 Ayanna was transported to the hospital after she was found unresponsive by her family friends, Jesus Mata and Shawna Parker. Doctors discovered Ayanna had a subdural hematoma and was transferred to Shands Hospital where she died. An autopsy determined the cause of death to be blunt trauma and the manor of death was ruled homicide. Detectives determined Mata was responsible for Ayannas injuries. Mata had changed his story several times about how Ayanna got her injuries but ultimately indicated he was caring for the child when she became fussy and he had trouble calming her. Mata told detectives he began throwing the child in the air. At that time, the child fell to the floor, striking her head. Mata then shook the child to snap her out of it. Then, he set her down to rest instead of seeking medical attention. 000B9FZ Airport Transportation Service to all Florida airports and seaports Door to door service On your schedule 24/7 OCALA SMART TRANSPORTATION 352-615-0399 www.ocala-smart-transportation.com The one you know 000BE0D Free Seminar War Time Veterans Many veterans and surviving spouses are unaware that they could be eligible to receive a significant monthly income through the Veterans Administration Aid & Attendance for Assisted Living.

BRIEFS Operation Honor Wall being launchedOn Memorial Day, many Americans observe Memorial Day by attending ceremonies or visiting cemeteries and memorials. Some fly the flag of the United States at half-staff. This year, a coalition of nonprofit organizations who provide assistance to military personnel, survivors, Veterans and their families are offering another way for Americans to express their appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our nations heroes. On May 10, the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network, a collaboration of 16 nonprofit organizations serving the men and women who have worn our nations uniform launched Operation Honor Wall www.operationhonorwall.org By visiting this virtual wall, grateful Americans can log on and leave a message in honor of family members, loved ones or friends who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. A number of business and elected leaders have joined Operation Honor Wall in an effort to encourage Americans to express their gratitude for those who have served and sacrificed leading up to Memorial Day. The project, led by the Florida based nonprofit organization; VeteransPlus aims to collect 4 to 5 million honor messages from grateful Americans before Memorial Day on May 28th. With celebrities such as Actor Gary Sinise, San Francisco 49ers Kicker David Akers, Actor Dean Cain and Christian recording Artist Matthew West, we hope to recapture the enthusiasm and patriotism of Americans for the more solemn occasion of Memorial Day by providing a means for them to express their appreciation on line, says John Pickens, Executive Director of VeteransPlus.

Allen Jenkins was in a white pickup when Detective Brandon Spillman observed him trying to pull over another car using a strobe light. Spillman attempted to make a traffic stop, but the truck sped away. He went south toward County Road 484 through residential areas, with speeds exceeding 100 mph. Deputies created a blockade of the road with their cars, but the suspect rammed the vehicles and sped away. According to the Sheriffs Office, to prevent injury to the driver, deputies and witnesses, Deputy Yobanny Valdez fired shots at the tires of the truck, causing one to go flat. The driver stopped in the 13200 block of Southwest 65th Circle, but Jenkins refused to get out of the truck. Deputies had to break the drivers window with a baton and pull him out. After being taken to the jail, his breath registered at .17, more than twice the legal limit. According to jail records, the 29year-old Jenkins was accused of fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer with lights and sirens, driving while license suspended, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer (several counts), impersonating an officer, resisting an officer without violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and DUI third offense. His bond is set at more than $50,000. As of Wednesday morning, he was still in the jail. A check of jail records shows previous arrests for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, domestic battery, and a fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer from 2001, when he was arrested at Pine Plaza in the city. At that time he was an 18year-old.

BRIEFS Operation Honor Wall being launchedOn Memorial Day, many Americans observe Memorial Day by attending ceremonies or visiting cemeteries and memorials. Some fly the flag of the United States at half-staff. This year, a coalition of nonprofit organizations who provide assistance to military personnel, survivors, Veterans and their families are offering another way for Americans to express their appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our nations heroes. On May 10, the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network, a collaboration of 16 nonprofit organizations serving the men and women who have worn our nations uniform launched Operation Honor Wall www.operationhonorwall.org By visiting this virtual wall, grateful Americans can log on and leave a message in honor of family members, loved ones or friends who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. A number of business and elected leaders have joined Operation Honor Wall in an effort to encourage Americans to express their gratitude for those who have served and sacrificed leading up to Memorial Day. The project, led by the Florida based nonprofit organization; VeteransPlus aims to collect 4 to 5 million honor messages from grateful Americans before Memorial Day on May 28th. With celebrities such as Actor Gary Sinise, San Francisco 49ers Kicker David Akers, Actor Dean Cain and Christian recording Artist Matthew West, we hope to recapture the enthusiasm and patriotism of Americans for the more solemn occasion of Memorial Day by providing a means for them to express their appreciation on line, says John Pickens, Executive Director of VeteransPlus.

Allen Jenkins was in a white pickup when Detective Brandon Spillman observed him trying to pull over another car using a strobe light. Spillman attempted to make a traffic stop, but the truck sped away. He went south toward County Road 484 through residential areas, with speeds exceeding 100 mph. Deputies created a blockade of the road with their cars, but the suspect rammed the vehicles and sped away. According to the Sheriffs Office, to prevent injury to the driver, deputies and witnesses, Deputy Yobanny Valdez fired shots at the tires of the truck, causing one to go flat. The driver stopped in the 13200 block of Southwest 65th Circle, but Jenkins refused to get out of the truck. Deputies had to break the drivers window with a baton and pull him out. After being taken to the jail, his breath registered at .17, more than twice the legal limit. According to jail records, the 29year-old Jenkins was accused of fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer with lights and sirens, driving while license suspended, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer (several counts), impersonating an officer, resisting an officer without violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and DUI third offense. His bond is set at more than $50,000. As of Wednesday morning, he was still in the jail. A check of jail records shows previous arrests for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, domestic battery, and a fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer from 2001, when he was arrested at Pine Plaza in the city. At that time he was an 18year-old.

What started as a retail petit theft arrest at Walmart ended with drug charges against a Southwest Ocala woman. Alicia Lorraine Brooks Mosley, 34, of Southwest 151st Lane, was accused of taking an Air Soft gun from off the shelf, then used an old receipt to return the item for money. She also was allegedly observed taking a DVD player and not paying for it. The loss prevention officer stopped her and took her inside. The deputy read her the Miranda warning, then asked if there was anything illegal in her purse. According to the report, she hesitated, then advised there was a straw that was used the night before for snorting drugs. The deputy found the straw and also a clear bag with a white powdery substance, which tested positive for cocaine. She was arrested and taken to the jail where she was charged with misdemeanor petit theft, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and felony possession of cocaine. Her bond was $2,750 and she was released later the same day. Laurine Arnold Holbin, 50, was accused of retail petit theft and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer after an incident at Walmart. She was accused of taking several items which she hid in a box. After checking the name she gave, her identity could not be determined and was arrested for the theft. A fingerprint check revealed her true name. Jose Miguel Rodriguez, 29, of Southwest 31st Avenue, was accused of assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence and assault on a public servant. According to the Sheriffs Office, he attacked an officer at The Centers while the officer was involved in bringing a juvenile to the treatment facility. Rodriguez started a fight outside with the deputy and had to be peppersprayed to subdue him. He later allegedly admitted drinking before the incident.Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Marions Most Wanted Walter Findley, 52, felony warrant.

Retail theft turns into drug arrest COP SHOP Man arrested in babys deathDetectives arrested Jesus Mata, 24, in connection with the death of baby Ayanna Ross, 11 months. On Wednesday, Feb. 29 Ayanna was transported to the hospital after she was found unresponsive by her family friends, Jesus Mata and Shawna Parker. Doctors discovered Ayanna had a subdural hematoma and was transferred to Shands Hospital where she died. An autopsy determined the cause of death to be blunt trauma and the manor of death was ruled homicide. Detectives determined Mata was responsible for Ayannas injuries. Mata had changed his story several times about how Ayanna got her injuries but ultimately indicated he was caring for the child when she became fussy and he had trouble calming her. Mata told detectives he began throwing the child in the air. At that time, the child fell to the floor, striking her head. Mata then shook the child to snap her out of it. Then, he set her down to rest instead of seeking medical attention. 000B9FZ Airport Transportation Service to all Florida airports and seaports Door to door service On your schedule 24/7 OCALA SMART TRANSPORTATION 352-615-0399 www.ocala-smart-transportation.com The one you know 000BE0D Free Seminar War Time Veterans Many veterans and surviving spouses are unaware that they could be eligible to receive a significant monthly income through the Veterans Administration Aid & Attendance for Assisted Living.

Henry Flagler's vision for passenger and cargo rail service in Florida was achieved through extraordinary effort, cost, and political will at the end of the 19th century. Flagler's Florida East Coast Industries (FECI) developed the railroad which led to the creation of residential communities and resort industries from St. Augustine to Key West. Florida East Coast Industries is responsible for much of the growth Floridians have been witness to over the last century due primarily to the railway opening Florida to vacationers and business opportunities throughout the state. Almost 100 years after its first tracks were laid, Florida East Coast Industries is poised to change the way Floridians think about travel once again, and at no cost to taxpayers. The All Aboard Florida rail project is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, at a cost of over $1 billion, and will link South Florida to Orlando through a 110 mph high-speed rail line to take commuters, vacationers, business travelers, college students, family members, and friends between South and Central Florida on a daily, scheduled, high quality mode of transport. Additional rail lines to Tampa and Jacksonville are planned to be incorporated into the transportation system soon after the main railroad corridor is established and operational. After Gov. Rick Scott rejected more than $2 billion in federal stimulus funding to construct a high-speed Florida rail line, FECI moved forward with their own plan to bring passenger rail service to Florida that does not rely on public subsidies or government funding. FECI will absorb the infrastructure costs and maintain the railroad through their own financial ability not dependent on taxpayer funded handouts.Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10WORDS$8.20+44AWORD(IncludesOnline)=TOTAL For your convenience, mail with payments to South Marion Citizen office at 8810 SW SR 200, Unit 104, Ocala, FL 34481 or call...Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses CallTollFree1-877-676-1403 CLASSIFIEDAD SMC_CLASS_AD_FORM_3_9_11 P ersonal/ Beaut y Hair Stylist & Nail TechF/T or P/T booth rental or high pay commission w/following + bonuss avail (352) 489-3004 352-266-0126 Sales Help Gr owing Company has Immediate openings for the following:Sales & Marketing Managerfor recyclable, foreign and domestic markets, must have min of 5 years marketing/sales experience at the corporate level (multi/bi lingual a plus)Fr ont load & r ear r oute drivers:must have Clean CDL (A & B), DOT Medical card & 5 years experience in the waste business.Diesel Mechanicmust have min 5 years with heavy truck repairs, including maintenance, hydraulic, brakes & electrical.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com visor lied and told everyone that he had no checked luggage. Just before he took off, the crew stood on the tarmac holding up the supervisors suitcase so he could see it through the window. His bag took the next flight out an hour later. The worst day of his 31-year career came in July of 1989. A tragic crash in Sioux City Iowa left several people dead. Eighteen of the victims caskets arrived at OHare field in Chicago along with their charred luggage. With dignity, their remains were unloaded and escorted to waiting hearses. Following his retirement, Judy and Richard decided to move to the warmth of Florida. After some research, they choose Ocala for its small town atmosphere and access to everything. Eight years ago in March, they moved to Cherrywood to make their home. Richard is very active in the bowling league where he carries a 163 average and has been on winning teams his entire time in the league. First with the Alley Oops and secondly with the Strikers, he has finished in the top three positions for his entire time in the league. You will often see his name with high game or high over average in the bowling section of the Chirp. Competitive by nature, Richard also participates in the Fun in the Sun games. Again, his team has finished in the top three of all the events. He has a first, second and third place medal and will be seeking to keep his streak alive at the next tournament. An avid walker, Richard puts on three miles a day. He strolls along the streets of Cherrywood passing out smiles as he goes. His friendly disposition; willingness to help others; and warm handshake are hallmarks of his personality. Judy and Richard enjoy landscaping their yard; growing tomatos and flowers and decorating their lawn with various light touches of accessories. Their love for the people and facilities of our community make them an asset to our neighborhood and a pleasure to know. From your reporterOops there was a typo in the name of one of the Winners of the Kentucky Derby Hat Contest in the last edition of the Citizen. Under the picture of the winners Trude Smiths name was spelled Truce Smith. Apologies to Trude and again, congratulations on her win.

Schools have low administrative costs At a time when education budgets are being cut and every cost closely questioned, Marion County Public Schools has the lowest administrative cost of all Florida school districts. This indicates more dollars directed into the classroom per student than any other district. As a result, Marions ranking jumped from third last year to first this year. Floridas Department of Education released its annual survey of school district administrative expenditures earlier this month, with an average state-wide cost of $553.31 per Unweighted Full-Time Equivalent (UFTE). Marions cost is $449.30 per UFTE, up just over one percent from last years $441.76. The financial information comes from data transmitted by districts to the Department of Education annually. UFTE is based on official student numbers determined by counts taken in October and February of each year. Given this number, Marion is ranked as the 16th largest school district in Florida. The results also consider general fund and special revenue funds. The summary is required by the Educational Funding Accountability Act. $ 695 $ 695 $ 695 GARAGE SCREEN DOORS O PTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES CRC058138 000BFWQ 465-4629 16 x 7 SLIDING 16 x 7 SLIDING 16 x 7 SLIDING GARAGE SCREEN DOOR GARAGE SCREEN DOOR GARAGE SCREEN DOOR Acrylic & Glass WINDOWS C ustom made for your screen room Starting at * *Installation may vary.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A stubborn refusal to go ahead on a project mystifies colleagues who expected more flexibility. But once you explain your position, theyll understand and even applaud you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A relationship seems to be stuck in the same place. Now its up to you, dear Bovine, to decide how far you want it to go and how intense you want it to be. Choose well and choose soon. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship progresses more slowly than you would prefer. Best advice: Insist on a frank and open discussion. What is learned could change minds and, maybe, hearts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its all right to be grateful to a workplace colleague who has done you a good turn. But gratitude shouldnt be a lifelong obligation. The time to break this cycle is now. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Its going to be especially nice to be the King of the Zodiac at this time. A recent money squeeze eases. Plans start to work out, and new friends enter Your Majestys domain. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Before you make a commitment on any level (personal, professional, legal), get all the facts. There might be hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Personal relationships improve. Professional prospects also brighten. A job offer could come through by months end. An old friend seeks to make contact. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your senses detect that something is not quite right about a matter involving a workplace colleague. Best advice: Follow your keen instincts and dont get involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A prospect offers rewards, but it also demands that you assume a great deal of responsibility. Knowing you, youre up to the challenge, so go for it, and good luck. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A favor you did a long time ago is repaid, as a trusted colleague steps in to help you with a suddenly expanded workload. A family member has important news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new job offer could require moving across the country. But before you let your doubts determine your decision, learn more about the potentials involved. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sense of fair play doesnt allow you to rush to judgment about a friend who might have betrayed you. Good! Because all the facts are not yet in. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a romantic nature that allows you to find the best in people. You would excel at poetry and drama. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Thousands of Floridians will now have access to life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings because of new state funding, thanks in large part to the advocacy of American Cancer Society volunteers throughout the state. The Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program will receive $1.24 million under a provision advanced by Rep. Chris Dorworth (R-Lake Mary) and included in Florida's 2012-13 budget signed into law by Governor Rick Scott. This federal program -known in Florida as the Mary Brogan Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program -provides cancer screenings and mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women ages 50 to 64. The program is particularly important in Florida, which ranks third in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and second in the number of breast cancer deaths. Yet, before this year, Florida was one of only seven states that relied solely on federal funding for the program, leaving thousands of women without access these screenings. "By adding state dollars to the program, the Legislature and the Governor are saving more lives," said Dr. Danny Armstrong, chairman of the board for the American Cancer Society's Florida Division. "When we detect breast cancer early, the chance of survival is extremely high. Yet, too many people are dying because they simply can't afford to get screened. That's unacceptable, and this funding begins to change that." American Cancer Society volunteers are advocating for the state to ultimately fund the program at the same level as federal funding for Florida, which currently totals $4.9 million. This year, they urged the legislature to move toward that amount with this initial investment of $1.24 million. They plan to continue to advocate increasing the state spending to match federal levels. In addition to funding breast cancer early detection, the Legislature also supported other key issues in the fight against cancer as advocated for by the American Cancer Society. The Legislature provided $12.15 million for competitive cancer research grants through the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program and the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program, both of which were originally created at the urging of the American Cancer Society. The Legislature also allocated $64.3 million for Florida's tobacco prevention and education program -a program that, in conjunction with other tobacco control policies, has resulted in more than 500,000 fewer smokers. The level of funding for this program is driven by Florida's Constitution because of an effort led by the American Cancer Society, but the Legislature must continue to allocate funding each year. With a network of more than three million volunteers nationwide and 310,000 Florida volunteers, the American Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back. New state funding for breast cancer screening could save lives Golf Parade; Memorial Day Ceremony; Veterans Activities; the Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon; and the Italian Dinner Fundraiser. Additionally, the club supports the Ocala Ritz Veterans Villages and has created and completely furnished two living quarters for homeless veterans. Please note that the club will again be providing a special Memorial Day program to honor our nations heroes. The program will be held at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 28, at the Health and Recreational Building at the flagpole. The OTOW Lions Club is always looking for new members who wish to serve those in need. If interested in becoming a member, please contact PDG Estelle Clark at 352-861-7358 or via e-mail at pdgestelle@yahoo.com. The Lions Club motto (internationally) is simple: We Serve. The OTOW Lions Club does exactly that.Softball LeagueWell, the winter Softball League has finally come, and it was a hard fought battle to the end. The first place team kept changing from week to week, and at one time, it was thought that there was no way to catch up to the Great Clips Team. Time changed that, and it was a run for the top between the Great Clips, Dr. Dunn and Florida Eye teams as they exchanged first place from time to time. The first to fall from the top spot was the Dr. Dunn Team, which just couldn't seem to muster up wind during the latter part of the season and left Great Clips and Florida battle it out. The remaining teams, Cebert Wealth, Wise Way Auto, and Tee Pee Tire couldn't seem to get enough wins to make a move to the top, although at times they did played well within their means. The team most people thought would have a good shot at moving into the top was the Tee Pee Tire team, with their youngest average players, but they were unable to make a move, ending instead in last place. The battle for the top ended on Monday when the Great Clips team finally got their momentum and took over the top spot they had lost, leaving them as the champs for the winter league period. Congratulations to the Great Clips team and it's players!Bowling LeagueThe season is finished and the Snowbirds captured first place, while Osima came in second and the Better Bs were third. Barbara Buecher was the most improved female bowler, and Lacoste Rivers was the most improved male bowler. Other noteworthy achievements for the year by the women were Linda McIntyre, with high average of 159, Hedy Schamal with high scratch game of 242, and Georgie Maguire with high scratch series of 551. The high handicap game of 276 by Judy Shuster and high handicap series of 697 by AJ Smallwood were earned. Among the men, noteworthy achievements include these as follows: Bill Hull, high average of 189; Art Buecher, high scratch gamed of 256; Rick Daddio, high scratch series of 657; Whitney Frye, high handicap game of 300; and Bill Shampine, high handicap series of 747. League members celebrated their efforts at their recent banquet, and they look forward to resuming bowling in September. Anyone who is interested in joining the league at that time should contact Jerry at 873-4327. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 11251 S.W.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 18, 2012 It was a couple of weeks ago, as I was sitting in a room conducting an interview, that a sudden thought hit me: I was nowhere near the smartest person in the room. In fact, the opposite was probably true. That can be very disconcerting, especially when youre sitting there with three 17-year-olds who are still in high school. What made it so extremely obvious was that these three seniors were also finishing their sophomore years in junior college, and would be graduating with an AA degree before they got their high school diplomas. They were three of the 42 West Port High School seniors who were about to graduate from the College of Central Florida. That means that next school year, theyll each enter college as a junior. As I sat there and listened to them answer questions, the first thing that struck me was their poise. Here they were, sitting with some old guy they had never met before, and they werent the least bit intimidated. They elaborated on each question without being prodded, unlike some people who will give you a two-word answer and wait for the next question. Each of them also spoke well, using perfect grammar, not speaking awkwardly after each phrase, the way so many people do, uh, you know. I knew I was in trouble right off the bat when I asked future plans. One wanted to go into light design and technical theater, and computer engineering; one wanted to study the human mind, and the other wanted to go into international studies and foreign languages. When I went to high school, there was no such thing as technical theater or computer engineering. The human mind was always there, but not many of us wanted to study it we were afraid what wed find. As for foreign languages, I took three years of Spanish, which hasnt helped me a whole lot, although if I struggle enough I can read some basics. As far as speaking it, forget it! There were some other light bulbs that went off in my head as we were talking. One was that West Port High School offers top quality education to those who are willing to work for it, as this trio obviously was. Second, something I already knew, was that there are teachers who are totally dedicated to their students. In this case, it was Ginger Cruze, who is in charge of the advanced placement program, because you could see the emotion in her as she finished watching the interview, knowing that these students would be leaving her after two years of studies. Third, was the feeling that I was seeing the answer to those who are always saying how bad a shape this country will be in when the current crop of young people takes the reins. If these three are representative of those who will be responsible for our country in the future, well, were in pretty good shape. So my thanks to a couple of people, particularly the aforementioned Ginger Cruze, who helped set up the interview with the students, and to Kevin Christian of the Marion County School Board, who first notified us that there were many students about to graduate from CF before high school commencement exercises. And, most importantly, thanks to Gabriela Saenz, Dakota Gardner and Justin Gonzales, whose personality and cooperation made the story possible. If you know any of the 42 grads who successfully completed this program, congratulate them on a job well done. Realize, too, that there is another group waiting to advance to senior class status, so West Port is by no means finished producing some top notch advanced students. As for me, I can take a hint. In the chance that I might want to do a similar interview next year, Ill spend a lot of time reading and studying and trying to recall some of those things I learned back in school. Somehow, though, I think Ill still be at the bottom of the academic list when we go into that room next spring.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Last week we told you that we thought there was too much emphasis on test scores in the Florida education system. Now the state Board of Education has gone to an extreme that for all practical purposes says that the FCAT writing test is a waste of time. The state issued an order changing the passing grade for the writing part of the FCAT, making it easier for students to pass, and therefore graduate. The reason? Too many failed the test as it was currently scored. The logic fails to impress us. Apparently the thought is that if many young people are failing the test, where others in the past have passed, then the test is too tough. So the solution is not to learn why suddenly students cant pass the writing test; the solution is to back off and let fewer students fail, so they can graduate. The writing test is a poor indicator of what students know. It is judged subjectively, unlike subject questions, such as math, that have a right or wrong answer. So the state may finally agree with those who have said for years that this test is unfair. Unfortunately, when young people cant write clear sentences, they have a strike against them in the business world. In this era of phonic abbreviations for words to fit them into the letter limit of Twitter, correct spelling and proper grammar have gone out the window. The inability to write properly can have an effect on things such as resumes, final papers in college, etc. The state should make an effort to find out what the common mistakes were in the essays that originally caused to many to fail, and take corrective steps. But in the future, the state should make the essay part of the exam informative and not part of the final grade. Of course, it doesnt seem to matter. After all, if you dont like the results, you can always change the standards in the middle of the school year. Thats what happened here. Better still, scrap the FCAT as constituted altogether. Let individual districts set their own standards for graduation. Maybe then teachers can teach the children what they need to know to succeed, not what they need to know to pass the test.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Standardized tests: another farce Not the smartest one in the classroom Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Libertarians: Pro-American or Un-AmericanWhile reading the guest column last week in the Citizen, I wondered what the "Freedom magazine and the Future of Freedom Foundation really represented. If you want to research it as I did, you will find that it's nothing more than a Libertarian, anti-everything, group which supports nothing except themselves. Many of course have heard of the Libertarians. It's one thing to support a political party, but another thing to support nothing but yourselves. They apparently would have us revert to the Isolationist country we were between WWI and WWII. But were we? If you will remember what Admiral Yamamoto said after the Pearl Harbor attack, it you don't, it was, "I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant," and boy, did they. The article in question seems to take anyone and everything but themselves to task for just about everything that's happened in the last 40 years. No one or any group is safe from their ranting. The straw that broke the camel's back for me, was the comment that President Obama was safe in the Situation Room in the White House when Osama bin Laden was killed. Now, where in the heck should he be, leading the Seal Team that took bin Laden down? If your answer is yes, you don't know much about our Constitution or our government. The President is Commander and Chief, not an in the trenches guy. No president has been or ever will be on the battlefield. Some have led armies but long before they became president. Remember civilians run the military not the other way around. Then the comment where he said we killed half a million children in Iraq due to economic sanctions against Iraq. I wonder who was keeping score for them. Could it be those Libertarians, who have never served in the military, just sitting in their offices counting heads of the dead in some grotesque way? It's who can they blame scenario. They blame presidents Bill Clinton, Carter, national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, Secretary of State Madeline Albright, the Bushes, and President Obama. The only person they left out is the janitor at the Supreme Court. It's easy to sit back and criticize others, and I've done it myself, PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 Showcase of StarsOak Run's great collection of talented performers known as Showcase of Stars will present their next program on Saturday, May 26, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove.

Four wonderful prizes, including a brand new 2012 Honda and an I-Pad, were donated by Hondaland in Tampa for a "Hole-inOne" on any of the four par 3 holes. Unfortunately no one had a "Hole in One." Hondaland COO, Greg Rothfeld, not only donated all the prizes but also played in the tournament. Thanks, Greg. After the tournament 80 people enjoyed a wonderful buffet lunch prepared by the Royal Oaks dining room. Everyone enjoyed the delicious hamburgers, pulled pork and salads but of course the Royal Oaks homemade chocolate chip cookies were a big hit! At this time we also want to express a huge thank you to our golf pro, Lorie Wilkes, without whom this tournament would not have been as successful as it was. Lorie spent a huge amount of time helping with all aspects of the tournament. Thanks, Lorie.

but I did serve my country during a war, but to randomly try to take down about everyone whose trying to keep this country safe is very un-American, and that's an understatement. It sounds to me as if the Libertarians look upon our service men and women as no more than statistics. As my father used to say, "you can't tell about where you ain't been." This seems to say it all about the Libertarians. If all that un-American activities by the Libertarians could be channeled to helping our country, they just might make a difference and put themselves in a positive light. War is hell. Seeing your buddies die is terrible, having one's head come off in your hands is horrible, but to hear some radical group criticize what's being done by our great men and women who serve our country, is horrendous. At least President Obama is trying to bring our troops home form Afghanistan. Groups who want to criticize this country must be part of this country first. Contribute, don't criticize, serve don't dodge. When you point one finger at others you have four pointing at yourself. The Future of Freedom Foundation seems to be more the future for ourselves foundation. Come on you people get a life. Yes, the Constitution guarantees Freedom of Speech, but remember where you live and if you don't appreciate it you could go to say, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan or Yemen. Then you would find out what it's really like to have your free speech taken away from you and maybe killed for voicing those opinions. Bill Ford Oak RunAn Ungodly socialist America?Any question we are headed in that direction? France just elected a Socialist as president. He represents the far left, unions, redistribution of wealth and the continuance of social programs that will bankrupt the country. He wants to put the tax burden on the producers of wealth so they can support the entitlement society that believes they have the right to take from producers what they make for themselves. Pay close attention, this sounds just like our Democratic Party! Sadly, it appears nearly half of Americans now share that belief, thinking the government should provide for them, that they are entitled, deserving to be provided for by other peoples money. This is further supported by the direct actions of the so called Occupy/99 percent crowd, who are endorsed by Obama, Pelosi and other prominent Democrats as well as the Communist, Socialist and Nazi parties. They, along with similar groups, promote the end of capitalism, having a socialist/communist country, and are very destructive. In addition to desecrating our American flag, they commit violence against other citizens and the willful destruction of property. The damage they have caused exceeds 10 million dollars at a cost to taxpayers of over 19 million. The Democrats and liberal media have called them a civic group just like the Tea Parties. Not even close, since the Tea Parties have committed no crimes, have not cost taxpayers money nor caused any damage to others or their property. Its called having class, loving our country, our flag and our God. If this isnt bad enough for our country, we now have our president endorsing same sex marriage! This is a direct attack on the Word of God and it scares me as to just how far our acceptance has come. I was taught years ago that what one generation rejects, the next may tolerate, then the next may accept. Just how far do we think God will allow us to move away from him till he says enough is enough? The far left liberals want God removed from every aspect of our American way of life. Every believer in America should be praying for our country to turn back to God, seek his face and to forgive us for not taking a firmer stand for him. If we dont turn back to God, America will soon fall, its as simple as that! Which America do you want? I certainly dont want Obamas! Wayne Rackley OcalaFriday, May 18, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Finally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in Athens, Greece, scientists have found a good laugh is a calorie burner not to be ignored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine giggling can burn off the number of calories found in a medium square of chocolate. These scientists discovered a way to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their findings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. Giggle the pounds away with Laughtercise This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, where does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my weight loss program has been a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories! My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, my regimen has not produced the results I desired. Just a few years ago, I exercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, which has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more out of a person than realized at the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk of money in paying my taxes this year. Every day I exercise my right to remain silent when the Gracious Mistress of OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE10 There has been a change in the speaker for the Upstate New York Club's celebration of Memorial Day to which all Oak Runners are invited. Andrea Sawyer of the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) will replace Dan Nevins. Andrea is an incredible champion for the WWP She regularly speaks to Congress, advocating for service people wounded in post 9/11 military conflicts. Her efforts are reality based in every sense of the word. Her own husband suffers a 100 percent disability from posttraumatic stress disorder and she is his primary caregiver. She doubles her lobbying efforts to focus on wounded warriors and their caregivers. In a moving presentation, she will share her personal experiences and her legislative work on both these fronts. The WWP will be the club charity event for 2012. Andrea will speak at a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommy's Bar-bque bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Cost for members is $18 and guests, $20. Tickets will continue to be available until May 21 and may be purchased by calling Sandy Mantel at 352873-9112.OMI ClubThe OMI Club held its April meeting at the Orchid Club. "Name That Tune" was a lot of fun for all who attended. A prize of $20 each was awarded to the winning team. Our next event will be "A Beach Party Picnic" on June 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Orchid Club. The menu will be hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad and dessert. Ice tea and lemonade will be available. You may bring any other beverage of your choice. There will be music by Ron for your dancing and listening pleasure. We will also be having a "Corn Hole" contest. This is a fun and easy game to play. Prizes will be awarded to winning team, plus we will have our usual 50/50. Sign up for the contest will be at ticket sales. We could use some men to help setting up. If you can help, please call Barb Songer at 352-291-8766. Ticket sales for the beach party will be on May 24 from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club lobby. Cost is $13 for members and $15 for guests. This is our last event for the summer. The next affair will be our annual Chili Cook-Off to be held Oct. 4 followed by our Christmas party on Dec. 6 We are still looking for officers for 2013. Outgoing officers will give anyone interested all the help they need to get started. Canine ClubMembers are reminded that the club now meets every other month, with outings planned for the months we do not meet. The next meeting will be Thursday, May 24, at the Island Club at 7 p.m. Our guest speaker for this month's meeting is Dr. Trish Kallenbach, a holistic veterinarian. She will be discussing subjects such as titer testing, diet, chiropractic treatment and also the over use of vaccines and medications. There will be a 50/50 drawing and refreshments will be served. It was wonderful to see our membership out in force at the last meeting. The room was practically full and we hope to see another good turnout this month. Our trip to the Humane Society Shelter was equally well represented. We are playing catch up on our annual dues. Dues are $5 per member and will be used in part to support canine organizations in our area. Please plan to pay your dues this month if you are in arrears.

In early May, Micanopy usually has a Doc Hollywood event to recall and celebrate the theme of the movie that was shot 21 years ago in their town. Our own Pun Alley activities take us further back into history when Hollywood performers actually got married and performers started their careers in the theater.The harried marriedA Hollywood producer got in early one morning to find his wife awake and raging. Where have you been? she demanded. Well, the producer explained, we previewed my new picture, and then I got to talking to the leading lady, a very lovely person. We went to Romanoffs, had a few drinks, and then she said shed like me to see her to her apartment. Well, you know how it is; one thing led to another, and here I am. Now, dont you lie to me, you horrible creature! screamed the wife. I know youve been out all night playing poker with the boys!PaybackA prominent businessman fell in love with an actress and decided to marry her, but he wasnt sure he could trust her so he employed a detective agency to report on her life. The report read, The lady has an excellent reputation. Her past is without a blemish and she has a circle of impeccable friends. The only breath of scandal is that lately shes been seen a great deal in the company of a businessman of doubtful reputation. Marriage shortsSome Hollywood kiddies were playing house. Said one, Were going to have a big family. I want three fathers and two mothers. The official Hollywood drink is marriage on the rocks. The sentimental Hollywood star wanted to get divorced in the same dress in which her mother got divorced. The actress was introducing her eighth husband to her daughter by her first husband, Darling, I want you to meet your new daddy. Say something to him. All right, the kid obeyed. Daddy, will you please sign your name in my visitors book? A producer was smitten by a beautiful young actress. He asked for her hand in marriage. She didnt quite grasp what he had said. He added, You dont understand. I want you to be the mother of my children. The actress asked, Really? How many do you have? One Hollywood kid is very proud. At the last PTA meeting he won the prize for having the most parents there. Friend: Say, theres a bunch of people outside waiting to see you. Among them is a bishop who says he married you some time ago. Actress: Gee! Im practically certain I never married a bishop.PottedA Hollywood starlet, who was more beautiful than brainy, visited friends one day and asked to be shown through their new greenhouse. Pausing a moment before one plant, she asked its name. It belongs to the Begonia family, was the hosts answer. Oh, gushed the beauty, how nice of you to look after it while theyre away. PerformersDirector: Have you ever had any stage experience? Applicant: Well, I had my leg in a cast once. When the unemployed actor got a job with a demolition company, he finally brought down the house. Some claim that movies would be better if they shot fewer films and more actors. Please, doctor, the ham actor pleaded with the psychiatrist, Im developing a terrible inferiority complex. Im beginning to think that there are other people as good as me. Hollywood is where the people accept you for what youre not. He was an actor who really moved the audience. Everybody left at the end of the first act. This actor spent three years in stock, but the cattle finally objected. One female star gives full credit to her wardrobe. She says, My clothes are always magnificent. Ive been a hit with them, on and off, for twenty years. When two performers meet, its usually an I for an I. Mother, why are the men in the front baldheaded? They bought their tickets from scalpers, my child. Great Scott!How could you stand up in court and say youre the greatest living actor of all time? the agent asked his client. The ham pulled himself up to his full five-foot-two, I was under oath. I didnt want to commit perjury. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the Parsonage is giving me a piece of her mind. Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good tradeoff. Now, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard, exercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each day provides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly where to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. A good guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more than just personal benefits. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. Why didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supreme health in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not waking up in the morning is no laughing matter. When I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in the mirror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps start the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good for a laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at least for the person who takes the time to see the funny side of the street. All those people on early morning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in anyones day. If they only knew how insignificant their opinions are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. They give, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, laugh-aminute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I am engaged in my Laughtercise for the day. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22).The Rev. James L.

RELIGION ON CONAN DOYLE: Or, the Whole Art of Storytelling By Michael DirdaMichael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize winning book reviewer for the Washington Post, has written a brief, eloquent love letter to Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle. In it he laments Doyles neglected works that have been overshadowed by the popular stories of the Baker Street sleuth: Today, much of Conan Doyles substantial oeuvre his bibliography runs to more than 700 pages suffers readerly neglect because of the widespread misconception that he only rose above the conventions of his time when he wrote about the dynamic duo of Baker Street. Dirda recalls the spell Doyle cast on him when he was 10-years -old and mesmerized by The Hound of Baskervilles. In fact, his admiration for the Victorian era author would direct his own career as a writer. Although Dirda concentrates mostly on the neglected works, he does touch on the author as a man who throughout his packed life never passed up the chance to test his own mettle. This self-imposed challenge would have him reporting on insurrecting dervishes in Egypt and joining the battlefields of the Boer Wars where he encountered an epidemic of enteric fever. A trained ophthalmologist, he preferred writing stories to treating eye diseases. An indefatigable British subject he never questioned whether colonialism oppressed the indigenous people. An idealist with old-fashioned virtues he saw the supreme function of literature as a means to inspire men to be brave, courteous, stoic, self-controlled and sportsmanlike. Yet his iron devotion to duty didnt make him a stick in the mud. True to his invalid wife, he waited ten years until her death to unite with the love of his life the beautiful Jean Leckie. Dirda may not persuade many of us to delve more deeply into Doyles canon, but he does remind us of the drawing power of Holmes gaslit world. Sherlock observes, reasons, and always deduces correctly as the astonished Watson inevitably asks, How on earth did you know that? Interesting Note: Photographs of Arthur Conan Doyle reveal an uncanny likenessnot to Sherlock Holmes but rather to the loyal Dr. Watson.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or is making a contribution to the quality of life of our active community. This week the spotlight shines on Richard Whitworth. Richard was born and spent his early years in East Saint Louis, Illinois. When he was just 4 years old, his father died. His mother remarried when he was in Junior High and the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. It was there that he and his two sisters and two brothers completed their educations. Richard graduated from John Marshall High School. A little over 50 years ago, Richard met a man at his local church. As luck would have it, the man had a daughter named Judy and apparently, he liked Richard enough to introduce the pair. The rest as they say is history. Judy and Richard just celebrated 49 years of marriage. For the early years of their marriage, they resided in Cleveland as Richard worked on the fight line of United Airlines. An economic slump hit the area and he faced a lay off. Rather than be out of work, Richard and Judy took advantage of an offer by the airline to move to Chicago. Working the baggage handling crew in the Windy City was both rewarding and challenging. Chicago is notorious for its vicious weather and frigid winters. In all kinds of snow, sleet, heat, and rain, Richard was out on the line with his crew loading and unloading cargo from departing and arriving planes. The work was not without its rewards in spite of the elements and harsh working conditions. Apparently people who work under less than perfect conditions develop an unusual sense of humor. Richard related some of the practical jokes that he and the crew played on unsuspecting people and even supervisors. One such incident took place when a supervisor was leaving for a conference. Aware of the pranks that Richard and the baggage handlers were into, the super-Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Friday the 18th is Comedy Night at Cherrywood. Mark Alan will be performing with his baffling magic tricks and unique sense of humor. There are still tickets available for both shows so contact Geri right away if you would like to attend. A friendly reminder; there will be no tables to sit at. Chairs will be arranged in theater style but light snacks will be served on the patio prior to each show. Thats a great perk. Show times are 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 for the 6 p.m. show and 7:45 for the 8 p.m. performance. Bring your tickets and your sense of humor then enjoy a great evening of live entertainment. The raffle prizes of dinner for two at Outback Steakhouse and the entertainment is sponsored by Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management so the tickets are free.Accordion ClubOn Wednesday the 23rd at 5:30, the Cherrywood Accordion Club meets to bring you top notch musical entertainment. Dick Richards hosts this event that features numerous musicians and accordion players of every level of achievement. The Clubhouse fills early for this entertaining and fun time so plan to be there on time to guarantee a seat. Admission is free so bring your friends and family to the concert like atmosphere, where great tunes and smiles abound. Memorial DayMemorial Day will be celebrated on the actual Memorial Day; May 30 at noon. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will host this observance and picnic to follow. Our Color Guard will present the American Flag for the National Anthem followed by a salute to the Armed Forces. Former Ocala Police Chief Morrey Deen, Major, U.S. Army (Ret.) will give a brief keynote address followed by the traditional playing of Taps. Immediately after the service, the grills will fire up to cook hamburgers; hot dogs; home made beans and potato salad. Tickets are only $7 per person and this includes coffee or lemonade in addition to the food. Everyone is encouraged to bring a potluck dessert. All are welcome to bring their beverage of choice. At 2 p.m., the much anticipated drawing will be held for the Bahamas Cruise. Remember, you dont need to be present to win or even be a resident of Cherrywood to participate. Tickets are just $10 each or three for $20. Purchase your picnic tickets from Geri in the office. Dont miss out on the opportunity to Honor our Fallen Heroes and share in the fellowship and friendly atmosphere of the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities.In Shape with Debra RiveraCherrywood is indeed fortunate to have Debra Rivera as our physical fitness instructor.

There are three categories of judging; Natural, Formal and Lawn. Two winners will be chosen in each classification and a plaque will be given to the owner. This plaque will be displayed on the lawns of the winners for the entire season giving well deserved recognition to the home owners for their hard work and artistic displays. For consideration in the contest, contact Fred OHern at 352-598-0037 before the 23rd of May and invite the judging committee to your residence or that of a friend or neighbor.

Trivia at CherrywoodOnce again Fred OHern and Rich Hurley will be putting up questions on the big screen at the clubhouse to challenge and tease the brains of our residents. This month the subjects will be Current Sports; Entertainment and History; but some other items get thrown in for variety and fun. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Deb Riveras stretch yoga class. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE13 Everyone divides into teams of three or four people and armed with a pencil and an answer sheet; they try their luck at winning the prize. If you dont have enough people for a team, not to worry; just come and youll be assigned one. Because of the nature of the questions and the wording, everyone has a pretty equal chance to win. Trivia is fun, exciting and a genuine good time. Bring your favorite snacks and beverages; pay $1 to enter and join with your teammates in an evening of excitement. The games begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23. All of the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund so not only are you having a good time, youre helping a worthy cause Family CaregiversFor those of you in our community that have the responsibility for the care of a loved one in Marion County, please be aware of a new program being offered by the Marion Senior Services Department.

Guest speakers and other professionals will give you helpful information that will lessen your burden and keep you aware of the services that are available to you. Ladies LuncheonOn Wednesday, May 9, our ladies held their final luncheon of the season at Logans Steakhouse. The group enjoyed great food and even better conversation as they discussed the seasons past events and their hopes for the future. A spontaneous energy was evident at the gathering that promises to keep the Ladies Luncheon an active part of Cherrywoods social life in the years to come. We wish a safe summer to our snow birds and look forward to next fall when the ladies will be reunited.Knitting & CrochetingEvery Friday at 1 p.m. in the Clubhouse library room, our residents gather to share their artistic abilities in knitting and crocheting.

Here are just a few of the fun and interesting activities that are available but seldom seen in this column. Mah-Jongg Tuesdays at 1 p.m. in the card room of the clubhouse. An ancient game of strategy mixed with a little luck. Fascinating to learn and play. Quilters Tuesdays at 10 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. True artisans weaving their craft as have generations past, making beautiful designs. Dominos Every Monday at 6 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. You might have played this game as a child but the versions played here are even more exciting and challenging. Hand & Foot Wednesdays at 6 p.m., where else, the card room of the Clubhouse. Come and join the fun as you hope for a good hand and try to get off on the right foot. Pass the Ace Saturdays at 6 p.m. you guessed it, in the Clubhouse card room.

Ping Pong Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m.; no not in the card room, but in the Clubhouse itself. Its a good time and good exercise for all.

PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE13 Everyone divides into teams of three or four people and armed with a pencil and an answer sheet; they try their luck at winning the prize. If you dont have enough people for a team, not to worry; just come and youll be assigned one. Because of the nature of the questions and the wording, everyone has a pretty equal chance to win.

Ladies LuncheonOn Wednesday, May 9, our ladies held their final luncheon of the season at Logans Steakhouse.

We wish a safe summer to our snow birds and look forward to next fall when the ladies will be reunited.Knitting & CrochetingEvery Friday at 1 p.m. in the Clubhouse library room, our residents gather to share their artistic abilities in knitting and crocheting.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or is making a contribution to the quality of life of our active community. This week the spotlight shines on Richard Whitworth. Richard was born and spent his early years in East Saint Louis, Illinois. When he was just 4 years old, his father died. His mother remarried when he was in Junior High and the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. It was there that he and his two sisters and two brothers completed their educations. Richard graduated from John Marshall High School. A little over 50 years ago, Richard met a man at his local church. As luck would have it, the man had a daughter named Judy and apparently, he liked Richard enough to introduce the pair. The rest as they say is history. Judy and Richard just celebrated 49 years of marriage. For the early years of their marriage, they resided in Cleveland as Richard worked on the fight line of United Airlines. An economic slump hit the area and he faced a lay off. Rather than be out of work, Richard and Judy took advantage of an offer by the airline to move to Chicago. Working the baggage handling crew in the Windy City was both rewarding and challenging. Chicago is notorious for its vicious weather and frigid winters. In all kinds of snow, sleet, heat, and rain, Richard was out on the line with his crew loading and unloading cargo from departing and arriving planes. The work was not without its rewards in spite of the elements and harsh working conditions. Apparently people who work under less than perfect conditions develop an unusual sense of humor. Richard related some of the practical jokes that he and the crew played on unsuspecting people and even supervisors. One such incident took place when a supervisor was leaving for a conference. Aware of the pranks that Richard and the baggage handlers were into, the super-Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Friday the 18th is Comedy Night at Cherrywood. Mark Alan will be performing with his baffling magic tricks and unique sense of humor. There are still tickets available for both shows so contact Geri right away if you would like to attend. A friendly reminder; there will be no tables to sit at. Chairs will be arranged in theater style but light snacks will be served on the patio prior to each show. Thats a great perk. Show times are 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 for the 6 p.m. show and 7:45 for the 8 p.m. performance. Bring your tickets and your sense of humor then enjoy a great evening of live entertainment. The raffle prizes of dinner for two at Outback Steakhouse and the entertainment is sponsored by Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management so the tickets are free.Accordion ClubOn Wednesday the 23rd at 5:30, the Cherrywood Accordion Club meets to bring you top notch musical entertainment. Dick Richards hosts this event that features numerous musicians and accordion players of every level of achievement. The Clubhouse fills early for this entertaining and fun time so plan to be there on time to guarantee a seat. Admission is free so bring your friends and family to the concert like atmosphere, where great tunes and smiles abound. Memorial DayMemorial Day will be celebrated on the actual Memorial Day; May 30 at noon. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will host this observance and picnic to follow. Our Color Guard will present the American Flag for the National Anthem followed by a salute to the Armed Forces. Former Ocala Police Chief Morrey Deen, Major, U.S. Army (Ret.) will give a brief keynote address followed by the traditional playing of Taps. Immediately after the service, the grills will fire up to cook hamburgers; hot dogs; home made beans and potato salad. Tickets are only $7 per person and this includes coffee or lemonade in addition to the food. Everyone is encouraged to bring a potluck dessert. All are welcome to bring their beverage of choice. At 2 p.m., the much anticipated drawing will be held for the Bahamas Cruise. Remember, you dont need to be present to win or even be a resident of Cherrywood to participate. Tickets are just $10 each or three for $20. Purchase your picnic tickets from Geri in the office. Dont miss out on the opportunity to Honor our Fallen Heroes and share in the fellowship and friendly atmosphere of the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities.In Shape with Debra RiveraCherrywood is indeed fortunate to have Debra Rivera as our physical fitness instructor.

In early May, Micanopy usually has a Doc Hollywood event to recall and celebrate the theme of the movie that was shot 21 years ago in their town. Our own Pun Alley activities take us further back into history when Hollywood performers actually got married and performers started their careers in the theater.The harried marriedA Hollywood producer got in early one morning to find his wife awake and raging. Where have you been? she demanded. Well, the producer explained, we previewed my new picture, and then I got to talking to the leading lady, a very lovely person. We went to Romanoffs, had a few drinks, and then she said shed like me to see her to her apartment. Well, you know how it is; one thing led to another, and here I am. Now, dont you lie to me, you horrible creature! screamed the wife. I know youve been out all night playing poker with the boys!PaybackA prominent businessman fell in love with an actress and decided to marry her, but he wasnt sure he could trust her so he employed a detective agency to report on her life. The report read, The lady has an excellent reputation. Her past is without a blemish and she has a circle of impeccable friends. The only breath of scandal is that lately shes been seen a great deal in the company of a businessman of doubtful reputation. Marriage shortsSome Hollywood kiddies were playing house. Said one, Were going to have a big family. I want three fathers and two mothers. The official Hollywood drink is marriage on the rocks. The sentimental Hollywood star wanted to get divorced in the same dress in which her mother got divorced. The actress was introducing her eighth husband to her daughter by her first husband, Darling, I want you to meet your new daddy. Say something to him. All right, the kid obeyed. Daddy, will you please sign your name in my visitors book? A producer was smitten by a beautiful young actress. He asked for her hand in marriage. She didnt quite grasp what he had said. He added, You dont understand. I want you to be the mother of my children. The actress asked, Really? How many do you have? One Hollywood kid is very proud. At the last PTA meeting he won the prize for having the most parents there. Friend: Say, theres a bunch of people outside waiting to see you. Among them is a bishop who says he married you some time ago. Actress: Gee! Im practically certain I never married a bishop.PottedA Hollywood starlet, who was more beautiful than brainy, visited friends one day and asked to be shown through their new greenhouse. Pausing a moment before one plant, she asked its name. It belongs to the Begonia family, was the hosts answer. Oh, gushed the beauty, how nice of you to look after it while theyre away. PerformersDirector: Have you ever had any stage experience? Applicant: Well, I had my leg in a cast once. When the unemployed actor got a job with a demolition company, he finally brought down the house. Some claim that movies would be better if they shot fewer films and more actors. Please, doctor, the ham actor pleaded with the psychiatrist, Im developing a terrible inferiority complex. Im beginning to think that there are other people as good as me. Hollywood is where the people accept you for what youre not. He was an actor who really moved the audience. Everybody left at the end of the first act. This actor spent three years in stock, but the cattle finally objected. One female star gives full credit to her wardrobe. She says, My clothes are always magnificent. Ive been a hit with them, on and off, for twenty years. When two performers meet, its usually an I for an I. Mother, why are the men in the front baldheaded?

Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good tradeoff. Now, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard, exercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each day provides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly where to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. A good guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more than just personal benefits. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. Why didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supreme health in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not waking up in the morning is no laughing matter. When I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in the mirror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps start the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good for a laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at least for the person who takes the time to see the funny side of the street. All those people on early morning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in anyones day. If they only knew how insignificant their opinions are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. They give, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, laugh-aminute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I am engaged in my Laughtercise for the day. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22).The Rev. James L.

RELIGION ON CONAN DOYLE: Or, the Whole Art of Storytelling By Michael DirdaMichael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize winning book reviewer for the Washington Post, has written a brief, eloquent love letter to Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle. In it he laments Doyles neglected works that have been overshadowed by the popular stories of the Baker Street sleuth: Today, much of Conan Doyles substantial oeuvre his bibliography runs to more than 700 pages suffers readerly neglect because of the widespread misconception that he only rose above the conventions of his time when he wrote about the dynamic duo of Baker Street. Dirda recalls the spell Doyle cast on him when he was 10-years -old and mesmerized by The Hound of Baskervilles. In fact, his admiration for the Victorian era author would direct his own career as a writer. Although Dirda concentrates mostly on the neglected works, he does touch on the author as a man who throughout his packed life never passed up the chance to test his own mettle. This self-imposed challenge would have him reporting on insurrecting dervishes in Egypt and joining the battlefields of the Boer Wars where he encountered an epidemic of enteric fever. A trained ophthalmologist, he preferred writing stories to treating eye diseases. An indefatigable British subject he never questioned whether colonialism oppressed the indigenous people. An idealist with old-fashioned virtues he saw the supreme function of literature as a means to inspire men to be brave, courteous, stoic, self-controlled and sportsmanlike. Yet his iron devotion to duty didnt make him a stick in the mud. True to his invalid wife, he waited ten years until her death to unite with the love of his life the beautiful Jean Leckie. Dirda may not persuade many of us to delve more deeply into Doyles canon, but he does remind us of the drawing power of Holmes gaslit world. Sherlock observes, reasons, and always deduces correctly as the astonished Watson inevitably asks, How on earth did you know that? Interesting Note: Photographs of Arthur Conan Doyle reveal an uncanny likenessnot to Sherlock Holmes but rather to the loyal Dr. Watson.

but I did serve my country during a war, but to randomly try to take down about everyone whose trying to keep this country safe is very un-American, and that's an understatement. It sounds to me as if the Libertarians look upon our service men and women as no more than statistics. As my father used to say, "you can't tell about where you ain't been." This seems to say it all about the Libertarians. If all that un-American activities by the Libertarians could be channeled to helping our country, they just might make a difference and put themselves in a positive light. War is hell. Seeing your buddies die is terrible, having one's head come off in your hands is horrible, but to hear some radical group criticize what's being done by our great men and women who serve our country, is horrendous. At least President Obama is trying to bring our troops home form Afghanistan. Groups who want to criticize this country must be part of this country first. Contribute, don't criticize, serve don't dodge. When you point one finger at others you have four pointing at yourself. The Future of Freedom Foundation seems to be more the future for ourselves foundation. Come on you people get a life. Yes, the Constitution guarantees Freedom of Speech, but remember where you live and if you don't appreciate it you could go to say, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan or Yemen. Then you would find out what it's really like to have your free speech taken away from you and maybe killed for voicing those opinions. Bill Ford Oak RunAn Ungodly socialist America?Any question we are headed in that direction? France just elected a Socialist as president. He represents the far left, unions, redistribution of wealth and the continuance of social programs that will bankrupt the country. He wants to put the tax burden on the producers of wealth so they can support the entitlement society that believes they have the right to take from producers what they make for themselves. Pay close attention, this sounds just like our Democratic Party! Sadly, it appears nearly half of Americans now share that belief, thinking the government should provide for them, that they are entitled, deserving to be provided for by other peoples money. This is further supported by the direct actions of the so called Occupy/99 percent crowd, who are endorsed by Obama, Pelosi and other prominent Democrats as well as the Communist, Socialist and Nazi parties. They, along with similar groups, promote the end of capitalism, having a socialist/communist country, and are very destructive. In addition to desecrating our American flag, they commit violence against other citizens and the willful destruction of property. The damage they have caused exceeds 10 million dollars at a cost to taxpayers of over 19 million. The Democrats and liberal media have called them a civic group just like the Tea Parties. Not even close, since the Tea Parties have committed no crimes, have not cost taxpayers money nor caused any damage to others or their property. Its called having class, loving our country, our flag and our God. If this isnt bad enough for our country, we now have our president endorsing same sex marriage! This is a direct attack on the Word of God and it scares me as to just how far our acceptance has come. I was taught years ago that what one generation rejects, the next may tolerate, then the next may accept. Just how far do we think God will allow us to move away from him till he says enough is enough? The far left liberals want God removed from every aspect of our American way of life. Every believer in America should be praying for our country to turn back to God, seek his face and to forgive us for not taking a firmer stand for him. If we dont turn back to God, America will soon fall, its as simple as that! Which America do you want? I certainly dont want Obamas! Wayne Rackley OcalaFriday, May 18, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Finally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in Athens, Greece, scientists have found a good laugh is a calorie burner not to be ignored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine giggling can burn off the number of calories found in a medium square of chocolate. These scientists discovered a way to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their findings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. Giggle the pounds away with Laughtercise This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, where does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my weight loss program has been a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories! My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, my regimen has not produced the results I desired. Just a few years ago, I exercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, which has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more out of a person than realized at the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk of money in paying my taxes this year. Every day I exercise my right to remain silent when the Gracious Mistress of OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE10 There has been a change in the speaker for the Upstate New York Club's celebration of Memorial Day to which all Oak Runners are invited. Andrea Sawyer of the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) will replace Dan Nevins. Andrea is an incredible champion for the WWP She regularly speaks to Congress, advocating for service people wounded in post 9/11 military conflicts. Her efforts are reality based in every sense of the word. Her own husband suffers a 100 percent disability from posttraumatic stress disorder and she is his primary caregiver. She doubles her lobbying efforts to focus on wounded warriors and their caregivers. In a moving presentation, she will share her personal experiences and her legislative work on both these fronts. The WWP will be the club charity event for 2012. Andrea will speak at a Memorial Day pig/chicken roast with Tommy's Bar-bque bringing a whole roasted pig with all the trimmings. Cost for members is $18 and guests, $20. Tickets will continue to be available until May 21 and may be purchased by calling Sandy Mantel at 352873-9112.OMI ClubThe OMI Club held its April meeting at the Orchid Club. "Name That Tune" was a lot of fun for all who attended. A prize of $20 each was awarded to the winning team. Our next event will be "A Beach Party Picnic" on June 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Orchid Club. The menu will be hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad and dessert. Ice tea and lemonade will be available. You may bring any other beverage of your choice. There will be music by Ron for your dancing and listening pleasure. We will also be having a "Corn Hole" contest. This is a fun and easy game to play.

Outgoing officers will give anyone interested all the help they need to get started. Canine ClubMembers are reminded that the club now meets every other month, with outings planned for the months we do not meet. The next meeting will be Thursday, May 24, at the Island Club at 7 p.m. Our guest speaker for this month's meeting is Dr. Trish Kallenbach, a holistic veterinarian. She will be discussing subjects such as titer testing, diet, chiropractic treatment and also the over use of vaccines and medications. There will be a 50/50 drawing and refreshments will be served. It was wonderful to see our membership out in force at the last meeting. The room was practically full and we hope to see another good turnout this month. Our trip to the Humane Society Shelter was equally well represented. We are playing catch up on our annual dues. Dues are $5 per member and will be used in part to support canine organizations in our area. Please plan to pay your dues this month if you are in arrears.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 18, 2012 It was a couple of weeks ago, as I was sitting in a room conducting an interview, that a sudden thought hit me: I was nowhere near the smartest person in the room. In fact, the opposite was probably true. That can be very disconcerting, especially when youre sitting there with three 17-year-olds who are still in high school. What made it so extremely obvious was that these three seniors were also finishing their sophomore years in junior college, and would be graduating with an AA degree before they got their high school diplomas. They were three of the 42 West Port High School seniors who were about to graduate from the College of Central Florida. That means that next school year, theyll each enter college as a junior. As I sat there and listened to them answer questions, the first thing that struck me was their poise. Here they were, sitting with some old guy they had never met before, and they werent the least bit intimidated. They elaborated on each question without being prodded, unlike some people who will give you a two-word answer and wait for the next question. Each of them also spoke well, using perfect grammar, not speaking awkwardly after each phrase, the way so many people do, uh, you know. I knew I was in trouble right off the bat when I asked future plans. One wanted to go into light design and technical theater, and computer engineering; one wanted to study the human mind, and the other wanted to go into international studies and foreign languages. When I went to high school, there was no such thing as technical theater or computer engineering. The human mind was always there, but not many of us wanted to study it we were afraid what wed find. As for foreign languages, I took three years of Spanish, which hasnt helped me a whole lot, although if I struggle enough I can read some basics. As far as speaking it, forget it! There were some other light bulbs that went off in my head as we were talking. One was that West Port High School offers top quality education to those who are willing to work for it, as this trio obviously was. Second, something I already knew, was that there are teachers who are totally dedicated to their students. In this case, it was Ginger Cruze, who is in charge of the advanced placement program, because you could see the emotion in her as she finished watching the interview, knowing that these students would be leaving her after two years of studies. Third, was the feeling that I was seeing the answer to those who are always saying how bad a shape this country will be in when the current crop of young people takes the reins. If these three are representative of those who will be responsible for our country in the future, well, were in pretty good shape. So my thanks to a couple of people, particularly the aforementioned Ginger Cruze, who helped set up the interview with the students, and to Kevin Christian of the Marion County School Board, who first notified us that there were many students about to graduate from CF before high school commencement exercises. And, most importantly, thanks to Gabriela Saenz, Dakota Gardner and Justin Gonzales, whose personality and cooperation made the story possible. If you know any of the 42 grads who successfully completed this program, congratulate them on a job well done. Realize, too, that there is another group waiting to advance to senior class status, so West Port is by no means finished producing some top notch advanced students. As for me, I can take a hint. In the chance that I might want to do a similar interview next year, Ill spend a lot of time reading and studying and trying to recall some of those things I learned back in school. Somehow, though, I think Ill still be at the bottom of the academic list when we go into that room next spring.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Last week we told you that we thought there was too much emphasis on test scores in the Florida education system. Now the state Board of Education has gone to an extreme that for all practical purposes says that the FCAT writing test is a waste of time. The state issued an order changing the passing grade for the writing part of the FCAT, making it easier for students to pass, and therefore graduate. The reason? Too many failed the test as it was currently scored. The logic fails to impress us. Apparently the thought is that if many young people are failing the test, where others in the past have passed, then the test is too tough. So the solution is not to learn why suddenly students cant pass the writing test; the solution is to back off and let fewer students fail, so they can graduate. The writing test is a poor indicator of what students know. It is judged subjectively, unlike subject questions, such as math, that have a right or wrong answer. So the state may finally agree with those who have said for years that this test is unfair. Unfortunately, when young people cant write clear sentences, they have a strike against them in the business world. In this era of phonic abbreviations for words to fit them into the letter limit of Twitter, correct spelling and proper grammar have gone out the window. The inability to write properly can have an effect on things such as resumes, final papers in college, etc. The state should make an effort to find out what the common mistakes were in the essays that originally caused to many to fail, and take corrective steps. But in the future, the state should make the essay part of the exam informative and not part of the final grade. Of course, it doesnt seem to matter. After all, if you dont like the results, you can always change the standards in the middle of the school year. Thats what happened here. Better still, scrap the FCAT as constituted altogether. Let individual districts set their own standards for graduation. Maybe then teachers can teach the children what they need to know to succeed, not what they need to know to pass the test.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Standardized tests: another farce Not the smartest one in the classroom Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Libertarians: Pro-American or Un-AmericanWhile reading the guest column last week in the Citizen, I wondered what the "Freedom magazine and the Future of Freedom Foundation really represented. If you want to research it as I did, you will find that it's nothing more than a Libertarian, anti-everything, group which supports nothing except themselves. Many of course have heard of the Libertarians. It's one thing to support a political party, but another thing to support nothing but yourselves. They apparently would have us revert to the Isolationist country we were between WWI and WWII. But were we? If you will remember what Admiral Yamamoto said after the Pearl Harbor attack, it you don't, it was, "I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant," and boy, did they. The article in question seems to take anyone and everything but themselves to task for just about everything that's happened in the last 40 years. No one or any group is safe from their ranting. The straw that broke the camel's back for me, was the comment that President Obama was safe in the Situation Room in the White House when Osama bin Laden was killed. Now, where in the heck should he be, leading the Seal Team that took bin Laden down? If your answer is yes, you don't know much about our Constitution or our government. The President is Commander and Chief, not an in the trenches guy. No president has been or ever will be on the battlefield. Some have led armies but long before they became president. Remember civilians run the military not the other way around. Then the comment where he said we killed half a million children in Iraq due to economic sanctions against Iraq. I wonder who was keeping score for them. Could it be those Libertarians, who have never served in the military, just sitting in their offices counting heads of the dead in some grotesque way? It's who can they blame scenario. They blame presidents Bill Clinton, Carter, national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, Secretary of State Madeline Albright, the Bushes, and President Obama. The only person they left out is the janitor at the Supreme Court. It's easy to sit back and criticize others, and I've done it myself, PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 Showcase of StarsOak Run's great collection of talented performers known as Showcase of Stars will present their next program on Saturday, May 26, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove.

Hondaland COO, Greg Rothfeld, not only donated all the prizes but also played in the tournament. Thanks, Greg.

Everyone enjoyed the delicious hamburgers, pulled pork and salads but of course the Royal Oaks homemade chocolate chip cookies were a big hit!

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Thousands of Floridians will now have access to life-saving breast and cervical cancer screenings because of new state funding, thanks in large part to the advocacy of American Cancer Society volunteers throughout the state. The Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program will receive $1.24 million under a provision advanced by Rep. Chris Dorworth (R-Lake Mary) and included in Florida's 2012-13 budget signed into law by Governor Rick Scott. This federal program -known in Florida as the Mary Brogan Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program -provides cancer screenings and mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women ages 50 to 64. The program is particularly important in Florida, which ranks third in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and second in the number of breast cancer deaths. Yet, before this year, Florida was one of only seven states that relied solely on federal funding for the program, leaving thousands of women without access these screenings. "By adding state dollars to the program, the Legislature and the Governor are saving more lives," said Dr. Danny Armstrong, chairman of the board for the American Cancer Society's Florida Division. "When we detect breast cancer early, the chance of survival is extremely high. Yet, too many people are dying because they simply can't afford to get screened. That's unacceptable, and this funding begins to change that." American Cancer Society volunteers are advocating for the state to ultimately fund the program at the same level as federal funding for Florida, which currently totals $4.9 million. This year, they urged the legislature to move toward that amount with this initial investment of $1.24 million. They plan to continue to advocate increasing the state spending to match federal levels. In addition to funding breast cancer early detection, the Legislature also supported other key issues in the fight against cancer as advocated for by the American Cancer Society. The Legislature provided $12.15 million for competitive cancer research grants through the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program and the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program, both of which were originally created at the urging of the American Cancer Society. The Legislature also allocated $64.3 million for Florida's tobacco prevention and education program -a program that, in conjunction with other tobacco control policies, has resulted in more than 500,000 fewer smokers. The level of funding for this program is driven by Florida's Constitution because of an effort led by the American Cancer Society, but the Legislature must continue to allocate funding each year. With a network of more than three million volunteers nationwide and 310,000 Florida volunteers, the American Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back. New state funding for breast cancer screening could save lives Golf Parade; Memorial Day Ceremony; Veterans Activities; the Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon; and the Italian Dinner Fundraiser. Additionally, the club supports the Ocala Ritz Veterans Villages and has created and completely furnished two living quarters for homeless veterans. Please note that the club will again be providing a special Memorial Day program to honor our nations heroes. The program will be held at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 28, at the Health and Recreational Building at the flagpole. The OTOW Lions Club is always looking for new members who wish to serve those in need.

The OTOW Lions Club does exactly that.Softball LeagueWell, the winter Softball League has finally come, and it was a hard fought battle to the end. The first place team kept changing from week to week, and at one time, it was thought that there was no way to catch up to the Great Clips Team. Time changed that, and it was a run for the top between the Great Clips, Dr. Dunn and Florida Eye teams as they exchanged first place from time to time. The first to fall from the top spot was the Dr. Dunn Team, which just couldn't seem to muster up wind during the latter part of the season and left Great Clips and Florida battle it out. The remaining teams, Cebert Wealth, Wise Way Auto, and Tee Pee Tire couldn't seem to get enough wins to make a move to the top, although at times they did played well within their means. The team most people thought would have a good shot at moving into the top was the Tee Pee Tire team, with their youngest average players, but they were unable to make a move, ending instead in last place. The battle for the top ended on Monday when the Great Clips team finally got their momentum and took over the top spot they had lost, leaving them as the champs for the winter league period. Congratulations to the Great Clips team and it's players!Bowling LeagueThe season is finished and the Snowbirds captured first place, while Osima came in second and the Better Bs were third. Barbara Buecher was the most improved female bowler, and Lacoste Rivers was the most improved male bowler. Other noteworthy achievements for the year by the women were Linda McIntyre, with high average of 159, Hedy Schamal with high scratch game of 242, and Georgie Maguire with high scratch series of 551. The high handicap game of 276 by Judy Shuster and high handicap series of 697 by AJ Smallwood were earned. Among the men, noteworthy achievements include these as follows: Bill Hull, high average of 189; Art Buecher, high scratch gamed of 256; Rick Daddio, high scratch series of 657; Whitney Frye, high handicap game of 300; and Bill Shampine, high handicap series of 747. League members celebrated their efforts at their recent banquet, and they look forward to resuming bowling in September. Anyone who is interested in joining the league at that time should contact Jerry at 873-4327. OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 11251 S.W.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A stubborn refusal to go ahead on a project mystifies colleagues who expected more flexibility. But once you explain your position, theyll understand and even applaud you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A relationship seems to be stuck in the same place. Now its up to you, dear Bovine, to decide how far you want it to go and how intense you want it to be. Choose well and choose soon. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship progresses more slowly than you would prefer. Best advice: Insist on a frank and open discussion. What is learned could change minds and, maybe, hearts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its all right to be grateful to a workplace colleague who has done you a good turn. But gratitude shouldnt be a lifelong obligation. The time to break this cycle is now. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Its going to be especially nice to be the King of the Zodiac at this time. A recent money squeeze eases. Plans start to work out, and new friends enter Your Majestys domain. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Before you make a commitment on any level (personal, professional, legal), get all the facts. There might be hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Personal relationships improve. Professional prospects also brighten. A job offer could come through by months end. An old friend seeks to make contact. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your senses detect that something is not quite right about a matter involving a workplace colleague. Best advice: Follow your keen instincts and dont get involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A prospect offers rewards, but it also demands that you assume a great deal of responsibility. Knowing you, youre up to the challenge, so go for it, and good luck. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A favor you did a long time ago is repaid, as a trusted colleague steps in to help you with a suddenly expanded workload. A family member has important news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new job offer could require moving across the country. But before you let your doubts determine your decision, learn more about the potentials involved. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sense of fair play doesnt allow you to rush to judgment about a friend who might have betrayed you. Good! Because all the facts are not yet in. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a romantic nature that allows you to find the best in people. You would excel at poetry and drama. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comA special club anniversary and sports achievements constitute thiss weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubOn May 8, the On Top of the World Lions Club celebrated its 25th Charter Anniversary.

Following a delicious meal, Past District 35-L Governor Estelle Clark of the OTOW Lions Club introduced current District Governor Jerry Skufe, who, in turn, introduced the guest speaker, Past International Director (PID) Judge Haynes H.

PID Judge Townsend stressed the importance of the work Lions Clubs throughout the world do, and he highlighted the many contributions made by the OTOW Lions Club members to those whom they serve. He also presented the club with two letters of congratulations from the Lions Club International and the Brasilia Award. Additionally, Lion Marty Schley received the Diabetes Award and Lion Dawn Frantz received the prestigious Lion of the Year Award. Master of Ceremonies Karl Kaufmann (Ocala Hilton Hotel) introduced the various club members as they provided the audience with a special presentation of Blast from the Past music (karaoke style, in costume), performed by the following members: I Will Follow Him (from Sister Act): Mother Superior-PDG Estelle Clark & Her NunsLions Carol DeYoung, Dawn Frantz, Ginny Redden I Believe (Frankie Lane): Lion President John Johnson Alexanders Rag Time Band (Andrew Sisters): Lions Joan Greve, Dawn Frantz, and Ginny Redden) Soul Man (The Blues Brothers): PDG Estelle Clark and Lion Robert Frantz Ill be Seeing You (Billie Holiday): Lion Joan Greve To honor our military, Its a Grand Old Flag was performed, starring the entire Lions Club cast, flag bearers, and Lions Donna Stocker and Darlene Schimelfanick. Flag bearers were as follows: American Flag, Lion Robert Frantz; Army, Lion Steven Snowman; Marine, Lion Ralph Mills; Navy, PDG John Redden; Air Force, Lion Richard Spahn; Coast Guard, Lion Ginny Redden; US Merchant Marine, Lion Kenneth Greve. Lion Sandy Deffler, escorted by Lion Edward Michelson, gave a stirring rendition of God Bless the USA (Proud to be an American), and the entire cast presented When Johnny Comes Marching Home and the Stars and Stripes Forever. The OTOW Lions supports the following charities: Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF); Florida Lions Foundation; Florida Lions Eye Bank; Florida Lions Guide Dogs; Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence (LPCCI); Conklin Center for Blind; Florida Lions Sight Van; Florida Center for the Blind; Interfaith/Food for Kids Backpack program; and KidsSight.

Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com visor lied and told everyone that he had no checked luggage. Just before he took off, the crew stood on the tarmac holding up the supervisors suitcase so he could see it through the window. His bag took the next flight out an hour later. The worst day of his 31-year career came in July of 1989. A tragic crash in Sioux City Iowa left several people dead. Eighteen of the victims caskets arrived at OHare field in Chicago along with their charred luggage. With dignity, their remains were unloaded and escorted to waiting hearses. Following his retirement, Judy and Richard decided to move to the warmth of Florida. After some research, they choose Ocala for its small town atmosphere and access to everything. Eight years ago in March, they moved to Cherrywood to make their home. Richard is very active in the bowling league where he carries a 163 average and has been on winning teams his entire time in the league. First with the Alley Oops and secondly with the Strikers, he has finished in the top three positions for his entire time in the league. You will often see his name with high game or high over average in the bowling section of the Chirp. Competitive by nature, Richard also participates in the Fun in the Sun games. Again, his team has finished in the top three of all the events. He has a first, second and third place medal and will be seeking to keep his streak alive at the next tournament. An avid walker, Richard puts on three miles a day. He strolls along the streets of Cherrywood passing out smiles as he goes. His friendly disposition; willingness to help others; and warm handshake are hallmarks of his personality. Judy and Richard enjoy landscaping their yard; growing tomatos and flowers and decorating their lawn with various light touches of accessories. Their love for the people and facilities of our community make them an asset to our neighborhood and a pleasure to know. From your reporterOops there was a typo in the name of one of the Winners of the Kentucky Derby Hat Contest in the last edition of the Citizen. Under the picture of the winners Trude Smiths name was spelled Truce Smith. Apologies to Trude and again, congratulations on her win.

Schools have low administrative costs At a time when education budgets are being cut and every cost closely questioned, Marion County Public Schools has the lowest administrative cost of all Florida school districts. This indicates more dollars directed into the classroom per student than any other district. As a result, Marions ranking jumped from third last year to first this year. Floridas Department of Education released its annual survey of school district administrative expenditures earlier this month, with an average state-wide cost of $553.31 per Unweighted Full-Time Equivalent (UFTE). Marions cost is $449.30 per UFTE, up just over one percent from last years $441.76. The financial information comes from data transmitted by districts to the Department of Education annually. UFTE is based on official student numbers determined by counts taken in October and February of each year. Given this number, Marion is ranked as the 16th largest school district in Florida. The results also consider general fund and special revenue funds. The summary is required by the Educational Funding Accountability Act. $ 695 $ 695 $ 695 GARAGE SCREEN DOORS O PTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES CRC058138 000BFWQ 465-4629 16 x 7 SLIDING 16 x 7 SLIDING 16 x 7 SLIDING GARAGE SCREEN DOOR GARAGE SCREEN DOOR GARAGE SCREEN DOOR Acrylic & Glass WINDOWS C ustom made for your screen room Starting at * *Installation may vary.

Henry Flagler's vision for passenger and cargo rail service in Florida was achieved through extraordinary effort, cost, and political will at the end of the 19th century. Flagler's Florida East Coast Industries (FECI) developed the railroad which led to the creation of residential communities and resort industries from St. Augustine to Key West. Florida East Coast Industries is responsible for much of the growth Floridians have been witness to over the last century due primarily to the railway opening Florida to vacationers and business opportunities throughout the state. Almost 100 years after its first tracks were laid, Florida East Coast Industries is poised to change the way Floridians think about travel once again, and at no cost to taxpayers. The All Aboard Florida rail project is expected to be completed by the end of 2014, at a cost of over $1 billion, and will link South Florida to Orlando through a 110 mph high-speed rail line to take commuters, vacationers, business travelers, college students, family members, and friends between South and Central Florida on a daily, scheduled, high quality mode of transport. Additional rail lines to Tampa and Jacksonville are planned to be incorporated into the transportation system soon after the main railroad corridor is established and operational. After Gov. Rick Scott rejected more than $2 billion in federal stimulus funding to construct a high-speed Florida rail line, FECI moved forward with their own plan to bring passenger rail service to Florida that does not rely on public subsidies or government funding. FECI will absorb the infrastructure costs and maintain the railroad through their own financial ability not dependent on taxpayer funded handouts.Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10WORDS$8.20+44AWORD(IncludesOnline)=TOTAL For your convenience, mail with payments to South Marion Citizen office at 8810 SW SR 200, Unit 104, Ocala, FL 34481 or call...Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses CallTollFree1-877-676-1403 CLASSIFIEDAD SMC_CLASS_AD_FORM_3_9_11 P ersonal/ Beaut y Hair Stylist & Nail TechF/T or P/T booth rental or high pay commission w/following + bonuss avail (352) 489-3004 352-266-0126 Sales Help Gr owing Company has Immediate openings for the following:Sales & Marketing Managerfor recyclable, foreign and domestic markets, must have min of 5 years marketing/sales experience at the corporate level (multi/bi lingual a plus)Fr ont load & r ear r oute drivers:must have Clean CDL (A & B), DOT Medical card & 5 years experience in the waste business.Diesel Mechanicmust have min 5 years with heavy truck repairs, including maintenance, hydraulic, brakes & electrical.

What started as a retail petit theft arrest at Walmart ended with drug charges against a Southwest Ocala woman. Alicia Lorraine Brooks Mosley, 34, of Southwest 151st Lane, was accused of taking an Air Soft gun from off the shelf, then used an old receipt to return the item for money. She also was allegedly observed taking a DVD player and not paying for it. The loss prevention officer stopped her and took her inside. The deputy read her the Miranda warning, then asked if there was anything illegal in her purse. According to the report, she hesitated, then advised there was a straw that was used the night before for snorting drugs. The deputy found the straw and also a clear bag with a white powdery substance, which tested positive for cocaine. She was arrested and taken to the jail where she was charged with misdemeanor petit theft, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and felony possession of cocaine. Her bond was $2,750 and she was released later the same day. Laurine Arnold Holbin, 50, was accused of retail petit theft and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer after an incident at Walmart. She was accused of taking several items which she hid in a box. After checking the name she gave, her identity could not be determined and was arrested for the theft. A fingerprint check revealed her true name. Jose Miguel Rodriguez, 29, of Southwest 31st Avenue, was accused of assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence and assault on a public servant. According to the Sheriffs Office, he attacked an officer at The Centers while the officer was involved in bringing a juvenile to the treatment facility. Rodriguez started a fight outside with the deputy and had to be peppersprayed to subdue him. He later allegedly admitted drinking before the incident.Friday, May 18, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, May 18, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Marions Most Wanted Walter Findley, 52, felony warrant.

Retail theft turns into drug arrest COP SHOP Man arrested in babys deathDetectives arrested Jesus Mata, 24, in connection with the death of baby Ayanna Ross, 11 months. On Wednesday, Feb. 29 Ayanna was transported to the hospital after she was found unresponsive by her family friends, Jesus Mata and Shawna Parker. Doctors discovered Ayanna had a subdural hematoma and was transferred to Shands Hospital where she died. An autopsy determined the cause of death to be blunt trauma and the manor of death was ruled homicide. Detectives determined Mata was responsible for Ayannas injuries. Mata had changed his story several times about how Ayanna got her injuries but ultimately indicated he was caring for the child when she became fussy and he had trouble calming her. Mata told detectives he began throwing the child in the air. At that time, the child fell to the floor, striking her head. Mata then shook the child to snap her out of it. Then, he set her down to rest instead of seeking medical attention. 000B9FZ Airport Transportation Service to all Florida airports and seaports Door to door service On your schedule 24/7 OCALA SMART TRANSPORTATION 352-615-0399 www.ocala-smart-transportation.com The one you know 000BE0D Free Seminar War Time Veterans Many veterans and surviving spouses are unaware that they could be eligible to receive a significant monthly income through the Veterans Administration Aid & Attendance for Assisted Living.

BRIEFS Operation Honor Wall being launchedOn Memorial Day, many Americans observe Memorial Day by attending ceremonies or visiting cemeteries and memorials. Some fly the flag of the United States at half-staff. This year, a coalition of nonprofit organizations who provide assistance to military personnel, survivors, Veterans and their families are offering another way for Americans to express their appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our nations heroes. On May 10, the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network, a collaboration of 16 nonprofit organizations serving the men and women who have worn our nations uniform launched Operation Honor Wall www.operationhonorwall.org By visiting this virtual wall, grateful Americans can log on and leave a message in honor of family members, loved ones or friends who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. A number of business and elected leaders have joined Operation Honor Wall in an effort to encourage Americans to express their gratitude for those who have served and sacrificed leading up to Memorial Day. The project, led by the Florida based nonprofit organization; VeteransPlus aims to collect 4 to 5 million honor messages from grateful Americans before Memorial Day on May 28th. With celebrities such as Actor Gary Sinise, San Francisco 49ers Kicker David Akers, Actor Dean Cain and Christian recording Artist Matthew West, we hope to recapture the enthusiasm and patriotism of Americans for the more solemn occasion of Memorial Day by providing a means for them to express their appreciation on line, says John Pickens, Executive Director of VeteransPlus.

Allen Jenkins was in a white pickup when Detective Brandon Spillman observed him trying to pull over another car using a strobe light. Spillman attempted to make a traffic stop, but the truck sped away. He went south toward County Road 484 through residential areas, with speeds exceeding 100 mph. Deputies created a blockade of the road with their cars, but the suspect rammed the vehicles and sped away. According to the Sheriffs Office, to prevent injury to the driver, deputies and witnesses, Deputy Yobanny Valdez fired shots at the tires of the truck, causing one to go flat. The driver stopped in the 13200 block of Southwest 65th Circle, but Jenkins refused to get out of the truck. Deputies had to break the drivers window with a baton and pull him out. After being taken to the jail, his breath registered at .17, more than twice the legal limit. According to jail records, the 29year-old Jenkins was accused of fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer with lights and sirens, driving while license suspended, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer (several counts), impersonating an officer, resisting an officer without violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and DUI third offense. His bond is set at more than $50,000. As of Wednesday morning, he was still in the jail. A check of jail records shows previous arrests for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, domestic battery, and a fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer from 2001, when he was arrested at Pine Plaza in the city. At that time he was an 18year-old.

MCSO placed first out of 17 teams representing law enforcement agencies throughout the United States and Canada. Each team has eight members. They are shown above in a local performance last week. Cable going out? Make sure its not thieves If youre watching TV and your cable suddenly goes out, it may not be the fault of the company. Someone may have stolen your cable box. No, not the one that sits by your TV in the house, but the main amplifier outside that takes the signals and processes them to go to your house. A series of thefts of those boxes in at least three counties, Marion, Lake and Sumter, has spread to the Corridor. There were at least two recent thefts in Cherrywood and one in Heath Brook. Most of the thefts have occurred during the overnight and predawn hours, when homeowners would likely be asleep and not watching television. A couple, however, have occurred in daylight. The main vulnerability seems to be Bright House, but Cablevision and Cox Communications may have also been victimized. Anyone who observes or hears suspicious activity in the area of their cable box should immediately call for law enforcement help. Hospice of Marion County has partnered with Interfaith Emergency Services to Fill er Up with items collected during a food and supply drive through May 26. The most needed food items are canned vegetables, spaghetti sauce, canned beans, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, jams/jelly, canned fruit, canned meat and rice/pasta. The most needed hygiene items are shampoo/conditioner, razors/shaving cream, deodorant, bar soap, diapers (all sizes), baby wipes, toilet paper, feminine products, toothbrushes, toothpaste and combs. Donations will be collected at the Hospice of Marion County Thrift Store at Jasmine Square daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hospice hopes to fill pantry 000B7Q9
