After her upbringing in Pandora, Ohio, she joined the Waves, and went to radio school. Eventually she found her way to Cape Cod, where she searched for and copied German communications. We had stations up and down the East Coast, she said. She and her fellow operators would notify the Navy when a German sub was surfacing, so the submarines could be bombed. Eventually they got wise to what we were doing, Bennett said, and they would drop oil. The oil on the surface would make the U.S. think the subs had been hit. They were crafty about things. After the Germans surrendered, Bennett transferred to Washington state and did the same thing against the Japanese. She stayed out there until the Japanese surrendered. She and her friends would stand out near the coast and wave at the American ships returning to port. After the war, she went to Kansas City and attended air traffic control school, but instead got married. She eventually moved to Columbus, Georgia, where she met her second husband.

Two men originally arrested for stealing more than $6,000 worth of tires were arrested again Monday night. Ameh Ruiz, 26, and Andrew Weinreich, 21, were accused of taking the tires and other merchandise from the Walmart on State Road 200. Around 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, deputies received a phone call from a Walmart employee advising that two mens had taken several sets of new tires from the store without paying, and loaded them into a Budget rental truck. The truck was seen heading east on State Road 200. Deputies located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Weinreich was driving the truck. Inside, deputies located 27 new tires. Weinreichs wife, Chantelle, told deputies more stolen property could be located at the Ruiz motel room and Weinreichs residence. At the Silver Springs Motel, room 4, deputies located 23 tires, a car battery, truck cover/canopy, a tent and a coffee maker. At Weinreichs house, deputies located another 14 tires. Then on Monday of this week, Andrew Weinreich was arrested on additional charges of grand theft and Ruiz was jailed again on another retail grand theft charge, in addition to the two counts from the original case.

When she was 14, her dad took off time from his plumbing and heating shop and they traveled all around the western part of the country. Among the places she visited was the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park. Later, her folks wintered in Florida, and I always liked it here. She decided to retire when she was vice president of a sheet metal corporation in Georgia, and 27 years ago moved into the home in Pine Run which is still hers today. Heloese plans on taking the Honor Flight in October. I think it's a good thing. I really want to see the World War II memorial. Part of the time she was in radio training, she was in the D.C. area, so she says she has seen most of the sights in the nation's capital. I don't think too many young people know much about the war and its history. She didn't lose anyone in the war, but had a brother, Leotus Sutter, and a brother-in-law, Lewis Dukes. Dukes was in France and lost an eye. He was a farmer, he drove, and played softball, so it didn't stop him. She has relatives in Florida, including two daughters, a niece, and three grandchildren. She also praised a neighbor who helps her as much as possible. Heloese walks comfortably around her home, but uses a walker on her slanted driveway. She had only one moment when she said she wished things were different. The hardest thing I ever had to do was give up my car, she said.Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

Whatever you do, dont give up. T A URU S ( April 20 to May 20) A tip about a coworkers betrayal might well raise the Bovines rage levels. But before charging into a confrontation, let an unbiased colleague do some fact checking. G E M I N I ( May 21 to J une 20) Although a relationship still seems to be moving too slowly to suit your expectations, its best not to push it. Let it develop at its own pace.

But hold on tight; stability starts to set in early next week. LE O (J uly 23 to Aug 22) Believe it or not, someone might dare to say No! to the Regal Ones suggestion. But instead of being miffed, use this rebuff to recheck the proposition and, perhaps, make some changes. V IR GO ( Aug 23 to Sept 22) You might find it difficult to make a decision about a family matter. But delay can only lead to more problems. Seek out trusted counsel and then make that important decision. LI B R A ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) Concentrate your focus on what needs to be done, and avoid frittering away your energies on less-important pursuits. Therell be time later for fun and games. SCO R P I O ( Oct 23 to Nov 21) Although the conflicts seem to be letting up, you still need to be wary of being drawn into workplace intrigues. Plan a special weekend event for family and/or friends. SAG ITT A RIU S ( Nov 22 to Dec 21) Your quick wit helps you work through an already difficult situation without creating more problems. Creative aspects begin to dominate by the weeks end. CAP RI CO R N ( Dec 22 to J an 19) Be patient. Youll soon receive news about a project that means so much to you. Meanwhile, you might want to reconsider a suggestion you previously turned down. A QU A RIU S (J an 20 to Feb 18) There are still some aspects about that new job offer you need to resolve. In the meantime, another possibility seems promising. Be sure to check that out as well. P I SC E S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Opening up your emotional floodgates could leave you vulnerable to being hurt later on. Watch what you say, in order to avoid having your words come back to haunt you. BO R N T H I S WEEK: Youre usually the life of the party, which gets you on everyones invitation list.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Fallen Officers Memorial at the McPherson Complex in Ocala. A sizeable crowd attended the event, which featured the reading of all the names on the memorial as well as military-type honors. Speaker Judge Willard Pope described to the officers in attendance and the crowd the types of situations that they encountered and noted that sometimes officers had a half-second to make up their minds about the use of force. Some of you have called 10-24, shots fired, yet you choose to do this. You do it because thats who you are and thats what youre made of. Pope continued, If you dont fight against wrong, you become part of it. He told those gathered, Heroes dont wear capes, they wear badges. You meet the definition of a hero, because thats who you are and thats what you do. He said that the fallen officers would tell you they would do it all over again ...would want you to be careful ... and that there are no regrets. The ceremony featured the reading of the names by Chief Joanne Black of the Dunnellon Police Department. A memorial wreath was placed by Arlene Rutherford, in memory of Deputy William Rutherford of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who was killed Jan. 2, 1990, when his car was struck by a drunk driver, who also died in the crash. The Marion County Sheriffs Office Honor Guard, which recently won a national championship, performed in the parking lot. There was a flyover by air units, a 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps and a riderless horse. FALLENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The names of Marion Countys fallen officers are inscribed on the monument.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he Indianapolis 500 Mile Race will be run this Sunday. Held annually for more than 100 years, the race consists of 200 laps run counterclockwise around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2.5 mile oval. The field consists of 33 starters with most of them going about 120 miles per hour and not texting, a rarity among todays drivers. President Obama has declined an offer to drive the celebrity pace car in the race. It appears he cant stand the appearance anymore of turning to the left. Our own driving will be along Pun Alley to see if we can find a racy story or two.Something Smells After last years Indianapolis 500 race, residents living near the track complained about the noise and pollution caused by the cars. But what disturbed them most was the putrid-smelling exhaust that continually emanated from the cars themselves. During the race they were rarely able to emerge from their homes without being assaulted by noxious fumes filling the air. Finally these residents had had enough, and they filed a suit against the Raceway for Indy scent exposure. 200 SyndromeA policeman saw a car puttering along at 17 mph creating a traffic backup. He stopped it and noticed five old ladies, two in the front and three in the back, eyes wide and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, said, Officer, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem? Maam, the officer replied, You should know that driving slower than the speed limit can be dangerous to other drivers. Slower than the speed limit? she said, I was doing the speed limit, 17 miles an hour! The officer explained that 17 was the highway number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman thanked him for pointing out her error. The officer asked, Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem awfully shaken and they havent muttered a single peep this whole time. Oh, theyll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Highway 200. Test DriveA man won the lottery and decided to buy a new sports car, even though he had hardly ever driven before. He convinced a salesman to let him try a Porsche. They went out on I-75 and the man quickly accelerated shifting past fourth gear, to fifth, then to sixth. While going at a very high speed the car suddenly shook, the engine exploded, the car swerved, and stopped. What did you do? yelled the salesman. Well, I was going so fast I ran out of numbered gears so I put it into R for Race. Sprints Riding on the highway is like Russian roulette; you never know which driver is loaded. When it comes to parking she does a bang-up job. The doctor told me that hed have me on my feet in no time. It worked. To pay his bill I had to sell my car. The person who has a second-hand car knows how hard it is to drive a bargain. A wife told her husband, Be an angel and let me drive. He did and he is. Famous racecar driver Richard Petty once got caught stealing; cops called it petty theft. Even when a racecar goes backwards, it is still spelled racecar. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie. I got stopped once for going fifty-three in a thirtyfive-mile-per-hour zone. I got off. I told them I had dyslexia. If you dont like the way women drive, get off the sidewalk. Avoidance at All CostsDriving down 200 a man had to swerve to avoid a box that fell from a truck. Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over and recovered the box. When he opened the box it contained large upholstery tacks. Im sorry sir, the policeman told the driver, but Im going to have to write you a ticket. Amazed, the driver asked, For what? The policeman replied, Tacks evasion.BlowupA man pulled into a gas station to put some air in his car tires because he had noticed they were a bit flat. How much is that? he asked the cashier? Ten dollars. Ten dollars! Thats expensive! Its only air! The cashier replied, Well, thats inflation for you. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Indy cars pay a visit to the roads of Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank When 4-year-old Kyli Taylor was diagnosed with leukemia May 1, it brought about big changes for her and her family. She was getting ready to start preschool, now shes getting ready for chemotherapy, said her mother, Linda Taylor. The Taylors live in Ocala, but Linda, husband Robert and Kyli have been spending most of their days at Shands at the University of Florida, where Kyli is receiving treatment. This Saturday, at LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, 1607 E. Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala, there will be a blood drive in Kylis honor, and there will be a bake sale and car wash to help cover the extra expenses the family is now facing. Linda explained that shes now on leave from her job at The Answer 2 answering service, so she can be with her daughter. Kylis illness also prompted the family to move, adding to the financial strain. Linda said when she worked, her company held blood drives. Now shes seen that blood in action, as Kyli has received transfusions of platelets and red blood cells. I knew it was a lifesaver, but I didnt know the specifics, she said. It was obviously a big eye-opener when she was diagnosed and we saw what it really does. The donor center opens at 9 a.m. Saturday, and the blood drive, car wash and bake sale will run until 2 p.m. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. For more information call 352-622-3544. Blood drive in honor of 4-year-old Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com A man who was allegedly caught stealing parts from an airconditioner was arrested outside Florida Citizens Bank on State Road 200. According to the report, Deputy John Rawls answered a call of a suspicious person behind the bank and carrying a hammer in his pocket. He was said to have walked to the vacant bank building across the street from Florida Citizens Bank at 8300 S.W. 200. When he arrived, Rawls saw a white cloud of vapor or smoke coming from the air conditioner enclosure of the vacant bank building. He approached on foot and saw the access doors were open. He could hear the sounds of metal on metal, sounds of impact and sounds consistent with metal being cut by a wire cutter or similar tool. Rawls looked inside and spotted Jody Duane Brechtel, 38, of Southwest 59th Street kneeling next to the compressor unit. After watching for several seconds, Rawls verbally identified himself and ordered the man to show his hands, which he did. The deputy asked him what he was doing and the suspect reportedly said, Times are tough. Brechtel was accused of burglary, attempted grand theft and possession of burglary tools. According to jail records, he was released on $6,000 bond. Charles Irving McKenney III, of Southwest 186th Court in Dunnellon, was accused of robbery by sudden snatching. A woman leaving Walgreens at 60th Avenue and State Road 200, had her purse grabbed by a man who then ran across to the area of CVS and left in a green van. Inside the purse was the womans medication which she had just purchased. Shortly after that, a deputy stopped a green van at West State Road 40 and 110th Avenue. McKenney was interviewed and subsequently arrested. As of Wednesday morning he was still in the Marion County Jail under a bond of $10,000.

Dear EarthTalk: What is the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign? Brian Howley, Washington, DC A project of the nonprofit Green America, the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign aims to empower consumers to advocate for more Fair Trade products on store shelves at their local supermarkets. Fair trade is a system of exchange that honors producers, communities and the environment by ensuring that farmers and artisans throughout the developing world are paid fair prices for their work and have direct involvement in the marketplace. The goal of the wider Fair Trade movement, according to Green America, is to build real and lasting relationships between producers in developing countries and businesses and consumers around the world. And thats where your neighborhood grocer comes in. While the Fair Trade movement is gaining steam nationwide, most of our supermarkets still carry fewif anyFair Trade products on their shelves, reports Green America. Together, we can put Fair Trade products within reach for millions of Americans. And just how does Green America expect us to do this? First, take stock of Fair Trade products in your supermarketlook for coffee, tea, chocolate, rice, sugar, honey, wine, fresh fruit, and olive oil. Scan the relevant aisles for thirdparty certifier Fair Trade USAs distinctive blackand-white Fair Trade Certified label, which is only attached to imported goods where the producers receive fair prices for their products and where strict socio-economic and environmental criteria are met during production. Alternatively, look for the logos of other thirdparty certifiers such as Fair for Life or Fair Trade Federation on product labels if you think fair trade versions may be available in a given product line. Then, you can encourage the store to stock more Fair Trade products by talking to the store manager as a loyal customer, adds Green America. They suggest using comment cards, which can be key to getting a store with no Fair Trade items to start carrying them. Every time you go grocery shopping, drop a comment card in the box asking your manager to stock Fair Trade items. Of course, talking to a store manager in person may be even more effective, especially if you are armed with a pile of your receipts from the store from the previous month or two to show how much spending power you alone would be able to allocate toward Fair Trade versions of the items you are buying there. Another creative way to spread the Fair Trade gospel would be by volunteering to hand out free samples of Fair Trade products that the store already sells in order to raise awareness and build consumer demand. Stores sell more of a product when a sampling table is set out, and if you, your friends and family are working the table, the labor is free for the store too. But why stop with your local market? If there is a chain supermarket outlet in your area, take it to the top by writing an e-mail, letter or postcard to corporate headquarters informing them of your desire to buy Fair Trade items in all of their stores. Check out the Fair Trade Your Supermarket website (link below) for more tips on how to make your next shopping trip fairer to the planet and its people.

Dear EarthTalk: The oil industry is planning what some call a dangerous strategy of drilling for oil on the Outer Continental Shelf in the Arctic Ocean. Whats going on? Vera Bailey, New Hope, PA In November 2011 the Obama administration began lifting the moratorium on off-shore drilling that had been imposed in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced a five year plan including 15 leases for oil development on Alaskas Outer Continental Shelf and in the Gulf of Mexico. For now the East and West coasts of the continental U.S. have been spared from drilling, but environmentalists are particularly worried about opening up the fragile Alaskan Arctic to off-shore rigs. This five-year program will make available for development more than three-quarters of undiscovered oil and gas resources estimated on the (Outer Continental Shelf), including frontier areas such as the Arctic, where we must proceed cautiously, safely and based on the best science available, Salazar told reporters. Republicans were incensed that more acreage was not being made available for off-shore drilling, but environmentalists couldnt believe what they were hearing for different reasons: In June 2011 the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) had released a 292-page report commissioned by Interior Secretary Salazar to identify the gaps in scientific or technical knowledge about how drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas north of Alaska would affect the region, reports Jerry Bellinson in Popular Mechanics. The report, Bellinson says, details several areas where those gaps exist, including oil-spill cleanup technologies, basic mapping of currents and the effects of underwater noise on sea mammals. Despite the USGSs warnings, the Obama administration decided to proceed anyway. Drilling infrastructure permanently alters ocean floor habitats, reports Defenders of Wildlife. Drill rig footprints, undersea pipelines, dredging ship channels, and dumped drill cuttings the rock material dug out of the oil or gas wellare often contaminated with drilling fluid used to lubricate and regulate the pressure in drilling operations. The group adds that contaminated sediments are carried long distances by currents and can kill important small bottom-dwelling creatures at the bottom of the marine food chain. Defenders also argues that spills, leaks and occasional BP-like catastrophes are unavoidable with off-shore oil drilling, if history is any guide. Even with safety protocols in place, leaks and spills are inevitable each year U.S. drilling operations send an average of 880,000 gallons of oil into the ocean. As for wildlife, off-shore drilling can have devastating effects even with no spills or leaks. Seismic surveys conducted during oil and gas exploration cause temporary or permanent hearing loss, induce behavioral changes, and even physically injure marine mammals such as whales, seals and dolphins, reports Defenders. Construction noise from new facilities and pipelines is also likely to interfere with foraging and communication behaviors of birds and mammals. Because they are at the top of the food chain, many marine mammals will be exposed to the dangers of bioaccumulation of organic pollutants and metals. And off-shore drilling only adds insult to injury as far as Defenders is concerned: In the face of the climate crisis, the U.S. needs to look for ways to decrease petroleum consumption, not increase it.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com P roperty law used to be a course which caused many prospective lawyers to consider whether they might serve mankind better as pharmacists or accountants. Perhaps the most difficult brain bender in property law is water rights. There are public waters, private waters, percolating waters, navigable waters, inland waters, flood waters, developed waters, surface waters, subterranean waters, surplus water, tide water, and waste water. Their common characteristic is wetness. Water is considered a property problem even though we cant walk on it or hold it in our hands. It is constantly subject to the laws of nature, such as gravity. For legal considerations water can be property temporarily, but if it escapes for even a moment, any claim of ownership is gone forever. The limit of food deprivation for humans varies by body mass (Women last longer for reasons which need not be discussed here). The limit of water deprivation also varies. On rare occasions some humans have survived up to nine days. Water is the most abundant molecule of the human body. There is human life on earth only because of the presence of water. Which raises the ongoing discussions about distribution of the water resources in Marion County. Water availability for the needs of humans should be considered paramount to all other claims and considerations. Whether were able to swim, fish, and be entertained by our water resources are secondary considerations. Recreational concerns about Silver Springs and local rivers offer some reasonable arguments for restriction of water removal permits, but theyre not paramount to the present and future survival needs of Marion County humans. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 T here were a couple of events last weekend that I attended that really brought into the limelight the change in recent technology. The first was the wedding of a family member Friday night, in which he invited everyone to take pictures with their cell phones and e-mail him the results, which he would compile and make available to everyone. Although he did have a friend who is a good photographer taking standard photos, and a couple of us used our digital cameras to take pictures, others did take him up on his offer. The second was a First Communion of a grandson on Sunday morning in St. Augustine Beach area. The church didnt want people using a flash during Mass, and although that didnt stop a few people, cell phones being used was a common sight. Quickly, there were many pictures of both events posted on Facebook. When we were growing up, this type of thing wasnt even a part of the imagination. Those same advances in technology have changed the way Americans look at war. During the wars early in our lives, except for a few grainy newsreels, the written word was the main description of the fighting. The Vietnam era changed that, with cameras and correspondents bringing the battles, and the deaths, right into our living rooms. That changed the way many people looked at war, but it also changed the way many people celebrated Memorial Day. Suddenly the day took on a more personal meaning, after we sat there and watched people die on our TV screens. Monday is Memorial Day, a day of honoring all those who died while fighting for their country. Its a national event, flags will fly, some places will have parades, many other places will have ceremonies. But for many people its a personal event. There are many among us who have lost friends or relatives in war (I lost an uncle one month after D-Day), and this is a particularly emotional day for those survivors who remember the heroes gone before us. So this coming Monday, amid the celebration, activities, beach visits and other fun times, take time to recall why this day is being celebrated. Without the sacrifices of these people who went before us into war, some of these celebrations might not be possible. On Memorial Day, thats worth remembering.

M emorial Day across the country is usually one of the least safe traffic weekends of the entire year. People from places where the ground is white all winter are suddenly unleashed on the roads, surrounded by greenery or, if they live near the coast, sand. After carefully negotiating slippery roads for months, they are turned loose to speed along dry highways to their party destinations. Hopefully, of course, people will remember what the day means, and take time to participate in events to recall those who gave their lives for our freedom. Here in Florida, we didnt have the wintry weather for the past few months, but there is still a sense of newfound freedom as we take to the roads for the first holiday of the season. Too many people throw caution to the wind, and that means the chances of accidents go up. Gas prices, which were pushing the $4 mark just a little while ago, have dropped by a significant amount, sometimes more than 10 percent, in the past few weeks, leading people to believe that traveling is a bargain. (Remember, when you buy that little bottle of water, you might be paying as much as $10 a gallon for water, but complaining about $4 a gallon for gas). The point is, we need for you to be safe this weekend. Law enforcement has just started a click it or ticket campaign to get people to wear seat belts, which is a law but, more importantly, involves common sense. We can be reasonably sure that aggressive drivers and speeders will also be targeted.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Be careful this holiday weekend Technology brought war into home Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Water, water everywhere, but only temporarily Same-sex marriageRecently President Obama publicly announced his support for same-sex marriage but not wanting to paint himself in a corner, his announcement was to support the decision, that is, if the individual states legislated the matter. Surely he is aware that the majority of states have already spoken on this subject and have rejected the concept. To serve his immediate political purposes, Amendment X (States Rights) was employed. This administration rarely before acknowledged States Rights. Persons of goodwill have or have had friends of homosexual persuasion who are highly regarded unmindful of their sexual orientation. Disagreement with the life style cannot deny earned esteem as Christians or as friends, we can do no less. Covenants between God and humans, as written in both the Old and New Testaments, contain condemnation of the practice of homosexuality not homosexual inclination, but the practice of homosexuality. Opponents of same-sex marriage are often classified as bigots. Such classification would thus include Protestant clergy and laity of different denominations, Catholic clergy and laity, writers of the Holy Scriptures, and throw into this mix of bigots Pope Benedict XVI, Rev. Dr. Billy Graham, and others of equal acclamation. Presents a dubious measure of bigotry, does it not? The majority of states reject the concept of same-sex marriage. Should all of these citizens who voted to reject be considered bigots? Due to abortion and contraceptive use, the USA birth rate is below replacement value. From a practical point of view, this is critical in the administration of any government that depends on a reliable work force to continue funding government programs. Needed are traditional marriages to increase birth rates, preferably children born within a committed relationship known as husband and wife. Same-sex marriages cannot achieve this goal.

Currently were in another drought. There will be others in the future. Accompanying the drought is a sinkhole alert. According to reports, Marion County has had the secondmost sinkholes in the state since the 1960s. Simply put, sinkholes are where water used to be. When rains return, water soaked earth will collapse into more sinkholes. Increased pumping will add to the likelihood of additional collapses. Granting water removal permits can become infectious, because others will claim what was OK for a goose should be OK for a gander. Additional applications from commercial bottlers are likely. As to the Adena Springs project, other commercial interests will note that Marion County has significant water resources available. Thats how the game is played. Marion County citizens should pressure elected officials to get on the citizens side in every battle of the water wars. They wont be able to lead folks to water after the aquifer runs dry. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don't walk in Oak Run The Oak Run retirement community woke up to new signs placed along its main boulevard. As we honor the brave men and women who fought to protect our freedom and rights, here in Oak Run we've had one of those freedoms taken away. Oak Run has no residential sidewalks, no cart paths except for the golf course, no bike or walking paths. It was designed with roads with no shoulders. Why not Watch for Pedestrians, Share the Road? Why not add a dirt shoulder as they tear up the boulevard. Is to protect drivers from walkers, walkers from drivers? I wonder what those brave soldiers fighting right now would think of a community that would deny its residents a walk down its boulevard to the community recreation center, or to Walmart, or to the bank, or a walk to maintain good health? I wonder how many retirement communities here in Ocala, or even in Florida, have banned residents from walking on their boulevards? Cherish the freedoms you have, for they can easily be taken away in the guise of protection. Maybe we should think about whom we really should be protected from!

come through this tax increase from tourists. Yep tourists. Now, this may not generate as much income, say some of those who support the millage increase, but its totally equitable, so all residents are footing the bill. I picture in my mind, people buying cigarettes, alcohol and other unnecessary items who dont own property and are not paying a millage increase. I could go deeper but I dont think it would be printed. Now lets address President Obamas health care program. First, insurance companies and some businesses are vehemently against it as are a great number of Republicans. Now, if politicians have a hand, and are involved in it, its probably a good health care program. Get politicians involved in anything and it becomes a, will it get me re-elected or not approach. Having worked for the Congress and lobbied two legislatures, politicians are at the top of, whats in it for me, rung of the ladder. Most politicians are lawyers, so that should be self explaining. I was with Medicare from its inception back in July 1965, as a financial and medical auditor. I can tell you that people in the couple years leading up to Medicare being implemented, were just as opposed to Medicare as they are Obamacare. But, and it should be said proudly, that Obamacare is also a good thing. Its been implied that senior citizens would be adversely affected by Obamacare. Hogwash. More political mumbo jumbo. Then theres those people who either work for a company that doesnt provide health care, or those who cant afford health insurance as we know it, who will then have health care available to them. Think of the people who would be taken off the welfare and Medicaid rolls. Example. I know a person who was working for a company that didnt provide health care and his wife was in the same boat in her job. No family health care for the four family members. So, the father had to quit a job he liked, and took another job, only because it provided health care for his family. People, this is not an exception, this happens all the time. Its a fact that health care is expensive and we can blame insurance companies for that, not President Obama. After all, health care has been around for years and President Obama has only been in office a little over three years. You do the math. So, which do you prefer, life with health care or the alternative? The Republicans, through an ad on TV and the print medial, is accusing a person supporting Obamacare by calling it, the death program. How ridiculous is that? I guess it takes all kinds. Were on the verge of being the worst state in the country on education, lets not go the same route on health care.

I must make a confession. It has taken me a long time to get to the place where I am willing and comfortable to make such an admission. I think some of my friends will be shocked at what I have to say. I think it is time I come clean and confess. Sort of, clean the air, so to speak. Simply put, I used to believe in leprechauns. I know that comes as a shock to all of my friends. At a distance, I look like a very reasonable, well-adjusted person. And the further away the better I look. The same thing goes with my distant relatives. The more distant they are the more I like them. Nobody would suspect that I had such a problem. You cannot tell what burdens people are carrying just by looking at them. It all came to me by way of reading books. When I was a young person, I read many books that had to do with leprechauns, rainbows and pots full of gold at the end of those rainbows. I was young and nave at the time and believed everything I read. Once while my father was sleeping on the couch I ask him if he believed in leprechauns and he grunted in such a way that I took it to mean that he also believed in them. If you cannot trust your father while he is sleeping, who in the world can you trust? Many a day I spent in the woods at the end of our property looking for leprechauns. I can testify that they are rather elusive creatures but several times, I almost caught one. They always were just a few seconds quicker than I was. I looked where I thought they were but they were nowhere to be found. Do not get me wrong here. I was never frustrated in my fruitless search of leprechauns. There is no better way to spend a day in the woods than searching for the elusive leprechaun. I began to think what I would do if I actually caught one. Then what would I do in the woods? It is always better to seek and not find than to find something and have to quit the seeking. I think it is something like fishermen. Few fishermen really fish for fish. They fish so they can go home and brag about the one that got away. It is hard to brag about the fish you caught and then there is the messy job of cleaning those fish. No, it is better to have fished and not caught anything to have fished and caught something that you have to take home and clean. Such were my thoughts concerning my leprechaun pursuit. Many an evening I entertained my parents with the exciting exploits of searching and almost catching a leprechaun today. I am sure they got tired of hearing, but I never tired of telling. Then the time came when I really had to face the facts. After almost a decade of diligently searching for leprechauns, I had to conclude that they were simply a figment of my imagination. And you know what happens to figs if you keep them around for a long time. I had to realize there were no such creatures as leprechauns. I must confess that it was a rather sad day for me. It was the beginning of many sad days like this. For instance, the day I realized Santa Claus was not real. Every year I diligently prepared my Christmas list starting out with, Dear Ole Santa, and dictated my list of Christmas hopefuls. Often I would sit on his lap and carefully read my list to him. The last time I did this my wife made me get off his lap. Something about being too big or something like that. To my recollection, he never made good on any of those requests. Jolly old soul? Phooey! Then there was the Easter Bunny. This had me for quite a while. After all, I love the chocolate Easter bunnies he brought me along with the rest of the candy. Unlike Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny was very generous in dousing me with candy galore. I truly hated putting the Easter Bunny away. Probably the last one I will mention would be when a politician says, I feel your pain. At first, I thought this was a genuine concern for my state of affairs. When I found out he was just playing me in his political theater I wanted him to feel some more of my pain. Pondering this I begin to realize that many things that I have believed in turned out not to be true. It is quite disconcerting when something you have believed in for a long time turns out to be phony. While I am confessing here, I must confess that only one thing has turned out not to be disappointing. That one thing has been the Bible. It has been the only thing that has not let me down in life. I take great comfort in Psalms 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Many things disappoint me and I have given them up. I start each day with the only thing that will never let me down, that is the Word of God. I believe the Bible. grade and older plus some adults who would like to volunteer and assist the teachers.

Chabad Lubavitch of Marion CountyChabad Lubavitch of Marion County will be hosting a Live Torah Reading of The Ten Commandments followed by a Dairy Buffet in honor of the Holiday of Shavuot. Join us Sunday, May 27, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ocala Hilton. Shavuot which celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai 3323 years ago is commemorated by the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogues on the 1st day of the holiday. Exquisite cheesecakes, pesto pastas, lasagna, and of course cheese blintzes all take center stage during this ancient celebration. Some suggest that this has contributed to the renewed popularity this holiday has seen. When thinking Jewish Holidays, Passover, Chanukah and Yom Kippur come to mind nevertheless Shavuot is considered one of Judaisms major holidays and was in fact a pilgrimage when all of Israel would travel to Jerusalem to celebrate in the Temple. No, it isnt all about the food, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht Director of Chabad Of Marion County and The Villages. What is important is that the community is joining together, hearing the Ten Commandments and celebrating the Torah. But the good food certainly helps! Not everyone can make it to the synagogue in the morning explains Rabbi Yossi Hecht so we have organized an afternoon reading of the Ten Commandments so all can attend. The Torah was given to everyone, men, women and children we are encouraging them to attend. Yizkor Memorial Services and holiday services followed by a Kiddush will be held at The Chabad Jewish Center 3500 SW 34th Ave. Circle Monday (Memorial Day), May 28 at 10 a.m. There is no cost to attend taxexempt donations are always welcome.

M ay is Jewish American Heritage Month. What better way to honor this than by showcasing those Jewish individuals who have contributed so much to American society and to the betterment of humankind as a whole. The list is long, the column is short, but I will try to highlight as many as I can in the various fields of achievement. In the world of entertainment we have: Woody Allen, Fyvush Finkel, Lee Grant, George Burns, William Friedkin, Beatrice Arthur, Jack Albertson, Martin Balsam, Sid Caesar, Peter Falk, Richard Dreyfuss, Kirk Douglas. Also Joel Grey, Dustin Hoffman, Goldie Hawn, Judy Holliday and the list goes on and on! Our honor roll of justices include Benjamin Cardozo, Louis Brandeis, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the newest female member, also a Reconstructionist Jew, Elena Kagan. What is life without art? The following artists, photographers, sculptors and photojournalists, have opened our eyes to the world around us: Diane Arbus, Lila Asher, Richard Avedon, Leonard Baskin, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Annie Leibovitz, Jack Levine, Maurice Sendak, (illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are)Art Spiegelman and so many others! The Jewish liturgy is filled with song. It is no wonder that so many Jewish-Americans are involved with the music scene. My offerings in this category include: Isaac Stern, Roberta Peters, Marvin Hamlisch, Morton Gould, Elmer Bernstein, George and Ira Gershwin, Randy Newman, Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond. Barbra Streisand, Aaron Copeland, Jascha Heifetz, Carole King, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel and others who would do anything for a song. The Jewish world is not all work and no play. Outstanding personages in the sporting life include: Hank Greenberg, Sandy Koufax, Mark Spitz, Ron Mix, Charles Myer, Maxie Rosenbloom, Dick Savitt and the sports announcers, Mel Allen, Arnold Auerbach and Howard Cosell. Jews have been merchants and businessman for centuries. Among the notables we have: Home Depot founders Bernard Marcus and Arthur Blank, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (Ben and Jerrys ice cream) Max Factor (makeup to the stars and the likes of us!) Isaac and Jacob Gimbel (Gimbels Department Store) Ruth Handler (of Mattel, and innovator of the Barbie Doll) Calvin Klein and Donna Karan (famous designers) and Estee Lauder whose line of fine American cosmetics was the first to offer free gifts with a purchase. Also Charles Lippert, (founded Weight Watchers because both he and his wife were overweight) Charles Lazarus (founder of Toys R Us) and Israel Matz, whose chocolate-flavored remedy has helped many in need; founder of the Ex-Lax Co. in 1907. Helping us to communicate from its earliest beginnings of TV, radio and the networks our honor role includes: David Sarnoff (founded RCA and NBC) Harvey and Bob Weinstein (Miramax films) Albert, Harry, Jack and Samuel Warner (Warner Brothers Studio), William Paley (CBS) and Emile Berliner (first working microphone and recording studio) And we Jews have been speaking our minds ever since! In the field of science, Jews have made many landmark discoveries that have eradicated diseases, eased human suffering and have given us glimpses into our natural world and its workings. Among those in this category we have: Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin (polio vaccine pioneers), Selman Waksman (microbiologist who discovered streptomycin; coined the word antibiotics), Roselyn Yalow (Noble Peace Prize winner for measuring substances in blood used in the treatment of diabetes), Karl Landsteiner and Philip Levine (discovered blood types and the RH factor in blood), David Nathans (first genetic map of DNA, Noble prize in 1978) and George Goodwin Pincus (collaborator and developer of the birth control pill.) Also physicists Albert Einstein, Albert Abraham Michelson (discovered accurate method of measuring the speed of light), Robert Oppenheimer (coordinated the project that led to the development of the atomic bomb) and Isadore Isaac Rabi (research led to the invention of the laser). And, oy! Where would we be without the timely advice of these people: Dr. Joyce Brothers, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, (sex therapist) Dr Laura Schlesinger, Dennis Prager, and Rabbi Harold Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People) Jewish contributions to all phases of American life have been outstanding. Considering that we are a small minority, the achievements are phenomenal. How this came about, in my opinion, is that as a population, Jews are very educated and orientated as a group toward study and service to others. In a society such as the United States, which has granted unprecedented freedom of religion, Jewish civilization has flourished which has provided fertile ground for the promulgation of Jewish educational opportunities leading to discoveries and research. May America continue her policies of freedom and equal opportunity for all to share in and benefit!

But in this mammoth timetravel work hes set his sights on a loftier subject: Can a single person change history? The author rolls out the scenario early and in simple terms. Al Templeton, owner of an unpopular aluminum diner, is dying and the diner has been purchased by L.L. Bean. In his storage pantry Als discovered a rabbit hole to the past and its his dream to kill Lee Harvey Oswald before he can assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Alas, its too late for Al whos in the last stages of lung cancer and coughing blood into maxi-pads. He must talk Jake Epping, burnedout high school teacher and friend in gloomy Lisbon, Maine, to stand in for him. His is a powerful pitch: Save Kennedy, save his brother. Save Martin Luther King. Stop the race riots. Stop Vietnam, maybe. Get rid of one wretched waif, buddy, and you could save millions. Epping can leave 2011 and step back to Sept. 9, 1958. There are only two conditions. When you return, Al explains, theres a reset. Everything you did on your previous trip is erased like an Etch-aSketch. Accepting the terms Jake new identity George Amberson embarks on his mission to forestall that pivotal event of 11/22/63. Along the way the narrative is crammed with nostalgia sock hops. Elvis, beautiful big cars, drive-in movies, Kresges and Ban-Lon no doubt making some readers long for this less complicated time. Central to the story is a touching love affair with an attractive young Texas librarian who brightens Jake/Georges loner existence. King nursed the idea for /22/63 for 30 years but confesses that in 1971 he wasnt up to the research necessary for such a project. And the research hes conducted here is nothing short of stunning. Lee Oswald and wife Marina breathe on the pages that detail the killers relationships with family and cohorts. In depicting a wellknown historical event as entertaining and thought provoking, this book has it all. Heres a book to take you into the night or at 849 pages one to take you through the summer.

This was a second marriage for both of them and they have a combined family of six children and 14 grandchildren. Jerry and Loretta wanted out of the cold winters in Connecticut. Because one of his stepsons, David, lives in Ocala, Jerry and his wife decided on Cherrywood as their new home. For over 30 years Jerry was a member of the Connecticut Hurricanes Drum & Bugle Corp. While he was a member, they won three national championships and played in many venues including Carnegie Hall. When an opening came up for the leadership of the Cherrywood Color Guard, Jerry was a natural fit. Jerry taught bugle at Derby High School for many years where he also led the Junior Drum & Bugle Crop. In addition, he taught their award winning Junior Color Guard. His love of young people still carries over today as he is teaching fourth and fifth grade Color Guard at Hammett Bowen Elementary School in Ocala. Making a difference in the lives of young people is one of the things that Jerry is proudest of. He related the story of a parent who said that before becoming involved in the Color Guard her child had no interest in school. Now that young person is totally committed to not only the color guard, but also to his education. Not content with these commitments alone, Jerry is a member of the Senior Olympics where he takes part in racquetball and runs in the 5K and 10K races. The Senior Olympics takes place every two years instead of the customary four years because of the age of the athletes. As if all these activities were not enough, Jerry works part time for Odessa Car Auctions plus gives wine tasting demonstrations for Kube Distributing. To say that Jerry has a busy schedule would be an understatement but he does more. He loves to shoot pool; run marathons and play cards. Jerry is a tireless worker with the Cherrywood Veterans Club and his one wish is that more members would take a few hours per month out of their schedule to be part of the Color Guard team. When you think about it, the time required is well worth the effort to bring honor to the flag of this Nation and its Armed Forces. You will be able to see Jerry and the Cherrywood Color Guard on Wednesday, May 30 at the Memorial Day Ceremony. When you do, be sure to thank him for his contribution to our community; our county and our country.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature an individual resident of Cherrywood who is making a difference in the community; the county; or the world. As we prepare for our Memorial Day celebration, this week the Spotlight shines on our Color Guard Commander, Jerry Moscariello. Jerry was born in Derby Connecticut and excelled in the public school system, skipping third grade. When he entered Derby High School he played football as one of the youngest members of the squad. He was an end with speed and elusiveness and Lettered on the team in spite of only weighing 119 pounds. After graduating at the age of 16 he worked until he was 18 and enlisted in the Navy. Bambridge, Maryland, was where Jerry took basic training. He then was stationed in Winter Harbor, Maine, followed by assignment to Boston. Following the early death of his father, as an only child, Jerry received a Hardship discharge to return home and take care of his mother. A little more than a year after his dad passed away, his mother also died. Jerry received a degree in Marketing from Bridgeport University and took a position in sales with Prudential Insurance. After 12 years, he took a break and worked with a car dealership for five years. He then returned to Prudential as Sales Manager where he continued until his retirement. Over 25 years ago, Jerry was training at the YMCA O n Wednesday, May 30, the traditional Memorial Day, the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its annual Memorial Day service and picnic. At noon, the service will begin with the presentation of colors by our own Honor Guard. Morrey Deen, former Ocala police chief and a major in the U.S. Army (Ret.) will be the keynote speaker at this event. After rendering honors to the five branches of the military; a memorial wreath will be laid at the Veterans Monument in front of the Clubhouse. Taps will be sounded in honor and memory of all those who have died for this country. Immediately following the service, the grills will fire up and Rich Becotte will start the music for an All American picnic. Hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and homemade beans will be on the menu as well as pot luck desserts. Beverages will include lemonade and coffee but guests are welcome to bring their own drinks. Tickets for the picnic are just $7 per person and all are welcome. Just see Geri in the office to purchase your tickets.

Tickets are $10 each or three for $20. Cruise includes all port fees, taxes; tips and $100 in spending money so dont miss out. You can purchase raffle tickets from Rich Hurley or Bill Mahar at the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities. A Day of RemembranceOn Monday, May 28, the nation will celebrate Memorial Day. Created to give federal employees and others a three day week-end, the VFW stated in their 2002 Memorial Day address, Changing the date merely to create three-day weekends has undermined the very meaning of the day. No doubt this has contributed greatly to the general publics nonchalant observance of Memorial Day. In keeping with these thoughts, the Cherrywood Veterans will present their program on the 30th Even before the guns had grown silent during our Civil War, many people, in their grief, sought to honor the fallen. In the North and South, women decorated with flowers the graves of those who had been killed. Hence the seeds of Decoration Day were sown. General Logan, head of the Grand Army of the Republic, proclaimed in General Order number 11 that the 30th of May be observed as a day to remember those who died in the bloodiest conflict in American history. He chose that date because no major battles had been fought on May 30th during the war; thus Decoration Day was born. Following the First World War, Decoration Day was renamed Memorial Day in order to honor all of Americas war dead. The poppy became the symbol of those who died in that war largely based on the poem, In Flanders Fields. The VFW took up the cause of helping the widows and orphans of veterans as well as the veterans themselves by selling poppies The funds from the sale of these flowers still goes for those purposes to this day. These are the basic cold historical facts surrounding Memorial Day. Setting those facts aside, Memorial Day is far more many Americans. It seems that at every stage of our history, our young men and women have had to answer their nations call and head off to war. World War II followed the First World War; next was Korea and then Vietnam. Several smaller conflicts ensued in Panama; Granada; Kosovo etc. Currently, we are involved in the War on Terror. As you read this, our service people are fighting and dying in Afghanistan, Iraq and many unnamed places, in an effort to keep us safe. On this Memorial Day, I hope that we as a nation remember with awe and reverence those who gave up all of their tomorrows so that we can have today. I hope that we as a nation thank the families of those who are never coming home, for the families and homes that we so often take for granted. I hope we as a nation take the time to give our children; grandchildren an extra hug and share with them that those embraces were made possible by heroes who will never again give or receive a hug from their loved ones. Cherrywood takes time to remember those who died; those they left behind and those who currently serve in harms way. Lest we forget Comedy Night Amazing!

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature an individual resident of Cherrywood who is making a difference in the community; the county; or the world. As we prepare for our Memorial Day celebration, this week the Spotlight shines on our Color Guard Commander, Jerry Moscariello. Jerry was born in Derby Connecticut and excelled in the public school system, skipping third grade. When he entered Derby High School he played football as one of the youngest members of the squad. He was an end with speed and elusiveness and Lettered on the team in spite of only weighing 119 pounds. After graduating at the age of 16 he worked until he was 18 and enlisted in the Navy. Bambridge, Maryland, was where Jerry took basic training. He then was stationed in Winter Harbor, Maine, followed by assignment to Boston. Following the early death of his father, as an only child, Jerry received a Hardship discharge to return home and take care of his mother. A little more than a year after his dad passed away, his mother also died. Jerry received a degree in Marketing from Bridgeport University and took a position in sales with Prudential Insurance. After 12 years, he took a break and worked with a car dealership for five years. He then returned to Prudential as Sales Manager where he continued until his retirement. Over 25 years ago, Jerry was training at the YMCA O n Wednesday, May 30, the traditional Memorial Day, the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its annual Memorial Day service and picnic. At noon, the service will begin with the presentation of colors by our own Honor Guard. Morrey Deen, former Ocala police chief and a major in the U.S. Army (Ret.) will be the keynote speaker at this event. After rendering honors to the five branches of the military; a memorial wreath will be laid at the Veterans Monument in front of the Clubhouse. Taps will be sounded in honor and memory of all those who have died for this country. Immediately following the service, the grills will fire up and Rich Becotte will start the music for an All American picnic. Hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and homemade beans will be on the menu as well as pot luck desserts. Beverages will include lemonade and coffee but guests are welcome to bring their own drinks. Tickets for the picnic are just $7 per person and all are welcome. Just see Geri in the office to purchase your tickets. Speaking of tickets, at 2 p.m. the drawing will be held for the winner of our three-day Bahamas Cruise. You dont need to be present to win or even be a resident of Cherrywood to be a winner. Tickets are $10 each or three for $20. Cruise includes all port fees, taxes; tips and $100 in spending money so dont miss out. You can purchase raffle tickets from Rich Hurley or Bill Mahar at the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities. A Day of RemembranceOn Monday, May 28, the nation will celebrate Memorial Day. Created to give federal employees and others a three day week-end, the VFW stated in their 2002 Memorial Day address, Changing the date merely to create three-day weekends has undermined the very meaning of the day. No doubt this has contributed greatly to the general publics nonchalant observance of Memorial Day. In keeping with these thoughts, the Cherrywood Veterans will present their program on the 30th Even before the guns had grown silent during our Civil War, many people, in their grief, sought to honor the fallen. In the North and South, women decorated with flowers the graves of those who had been killed. Hence the seeds of Decoration Day were sown. General Logan, head of the Grand Army of the Republic, proclaimed in General Order number 11 that the 30th of May be observed as a day to remember those who died in the bloodiest conflict in American history. He chose that date because no major battles had been fought on May 30th during the war; thus Decoration Day was born. Following the First World War, Decoration Day was renamed Memorial Day in order to honor all of Americas war dead. The poppy became the symbol of those who died in that war largely based on the poem, In Flanders Fields. The VFW took up the cause of helping the widows and orphans of veterans as well as the veterans themselves by selling poppies The funds from the sale of these flowers still goes for those purposes to this day. These are the basic cold historical facts surrounding Memorial Day. Setting those facts aside, Memorial Day is far more many Americans. It seems that at every stage of our history, our young men and women have had to answer their nations call and head off to war. World War II followed the First World War; next was Korea and then Vietnam. Several smaller conflicts ensued in Panama; Granada; Kosovo etc. Currently, we are involved in the War on Terror. As you read this, our service people are fighting and dying in Afghanistan, Iraq and many unnamed places, in an effort to keep us safe. On this Memorial Day, I hope that we as a nation remember with awe and reverence those who gave up all of their tomorrows so that we can have today. I hope that we as a nation thank the families of those who are never coming home, for the families and homes that we so often take for granted. I hope we as a nation take the time to give our children; grandchildren an extra hug and share with them that those embraces were made possible by heroes who will never again give or receive a hug from their loved ones. Cherrywood takes time to remember those who died; those they left behind and those who currently serve in harms way. Lest we forget Comedy Night Amazing! Residents were treated to a night of rollicking entertainment on Friday, May 18. Mark Alan, comedian; magician and all around fantastic entertainer stared in a night of mind boggling illusions and down right, roll in the aisles, funny stuff. Mark quipped, David Letterman; Jay Leno and Collin OBrien these are just some of the shows I wish I had been on. From the reaction of the audience, he could well be on those shows and more. Marks interaction with the audience was not only comical, it was fascinating. Many volunteers took part in the action and interaction with him as he amazed and astounded everyone with his magic tricks. The show lasted a little more than an hour, but it was over all too quickly for those who were there.

This was a second marriage for both of them and they have a combined family of six children and 14 grandchildren. Jerry and Loretta wanted out of the cold winters in Connecticut. Because one of his stepsons, David, lives in Ocala, Jerry and his wife decided on Cherrywood as their new home. For over 30 years Jerry was a member of the Connecticut Hurricanes Drum & Bugle Corp. While he was a member, they won three national championships and played in many venues including Carnegie Hall. When an opening came up for the leadership of the Cherrywood Color Guard, Jerry was a natural fit. Jerry taught bugle at Derby High School for many years where he also led the Junior Drum & Bugle Crop. In addition, he taught their award winning Junior Color Guard. His love of young people still carries over today as he is teaching fourth and fifth grade Color Guard at Hammett Bowen Elementary School in Ocala. Making a difference in the lives of young people is one of the things that Jerry is proudest of. He related the story of a parent who said that before becoming involved in the Color Guard her child had no interest in school. Now that young person is totally committed to not only the color guard, but also to his education. Not content with these commitments alone, Jerry is a member of the Senior Olympics where he takes part in racquetball and runs in the 5K and 10K races. The Senior Olympics takes place every two years instead of the customary four years because of the age of the athletes. As if all these activities were not enough, Jerry works part time for Odessa Car Auctions plus gives wine tasting demonstrations for Kube Distributing. To say that Jerry has a busy schedule would be an understatement but he does more. He loves to shoot pool; run marathons and play cards. Jerry is a tireless worker with the Cherrywood Veterans Club and his one wish is that more members would take a few hours per month out of their schedule to be part of the Color Guard team. When you think about it, the time required is well worth the effort to bring honor to the flag of this Nation and its Armed Forces. You will be able to see Jerry and the Cherrywood Color Guard on Wednesday, May 30 at the Memorial Day Ceremony. When you do, be sure to thank him for his contribution to our community; our county and our country.

M ay is Jewish American Heritage Month. What better way to honor this than by showcasing those Jewish individuals who have contributed so much to American society and to the betterment of humankind as a whole. The list is long, the column is short, but I will try to highlight as many as I can in the various fields of achievement. In the world of entertainment we have: Woody Allen, Fyvush Finkel, Lee Grant, George Burns, William Friedkin, Beatrice Arthur, Jack Albertson, Martin Balsam, Sid Caesar, Peter Falk, Richard Dreyfuss, Kirk Douglas. Also Joel Grey, Dustin Hoffman, Goldie Hawn, Judy Holliday and the list goes on and on! Our honor roll of justices include Benjamin Cardozo, Louis Brandeis, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the newest female member, also a Reconstructionist Jew, Elena Kagan. What is life without art? The following artists, photographers, sculptors and photojournalists, have opened our eyes to the world around us: Diane Arbus, Lila Asher, Richard Avedon, Leonard Baskin, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Annie Leibovitz, Jack Levine, Maurice Sendak, (illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are)Art Spiegelman and so many others! The Jewish liturgy is filled with song. It is no wonder that so many Jewish-Americans are involved with the music scene. My offerings in this category include: Isaac Stern, Roberta Peters, Marvin Hamlisch, Morton Gould, Elmer Bernstein, George and Ira Gershwin, Randy Newman, Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond. Barbra Streisand, Aaron Copeland, Jascha Heifetz, Carole King, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel and others who would do anything for a song. The Jewish world is not all work and no play. Outstanding personages in the sporting life include: Hank Greenberg, Sandy Koufax, Mark Spitz, Ron Mix, Charles Myer, Maxie Rosenbloom, Dick Savitt and the sports announcers, Mel Allen, Arnold Auerbach and Howard Cosell. Jews have been merchants and businessman for centuries. Among the notables we have: Home Depot founders Bernard Marcus and Arthur Blank, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (Ben and Jerrys ice cream) Max Factor (makeup to the stars and the likes of us!) Isaac and Jacob Gimbel (Gimbels Department Store) Ruth Handler (of Mattel, and innovator of the Barbie Doll) Calvin Klein and Donna Karan (famous designers) and Estee Lauder whose line of fine American cosmetics was the first to offer free gifts with a purchase. Also Charles Lippert, (founded Weight Watchers because both he and his wife were overweight) Charles Lazarus (founder of Toys R Us) and Israel Matz, whose chocolate-flavored remedy has helped many in need; founder of the Ex-Lax Co. in 1907. Helping us to communicate from its earliest beginnings of TV, radio and the networks our honor role includes: David Sarnoff (founded RCA and NBC) Harvey and Bob Weinstein (Miramax films) Albert, Harry, Jack and Samuel Warner (Warner Brothers Studio), William Paley (CBS) and Emile Berliner (first working microphone and recording studio) And we Jews have been speaking our minds ever since! In the field of science, Jews have made many landmark discoveries that have eradicated diseases, eased human suffering and have given us glimpses into our natural world and its workings. Among those in this category we have: Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin (polio vaccine pioneers), Selman Waksman (microbiologist who discovered streptomycin; coined the word antibiotics), Roselyn Yalow (Noble Peace Prize winner for measuring substances in blood used in the treatment of diabetes), Karl Landsteiner and Philip Levine (discovered blood types and the RH factor in blood), David Nathans (first genetic map of DNA, Noble prize in 1978) and George Goodwin Pincus (collaborator and developer of the birth control pill.) Also physicists Albert Einstein, Albert Abraham Michelson (discovered accurate method of measuring the speed of light), Robert Oppenheimer (coordinated the project that led to the development of the atomic bomb) and Isadore Isaac Rabi (research led to the invention of the laser). And, oy! Where would we be without the timely advice of these people: Dr. Joyce Brothers, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, (sex therapist) Dr Laura Schlesinger, Dennis Prager, and Rabbi Harold Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People) Jewish contributions to all phases of American life have been outstanding. Considering that we are a small minority, the achievements are phenomenal. How this came about, in my opinion, is that as a population, Jews are very educated and orientated as a group toward study and service to others. In a society such as the United States, which has granted unprecedented freedom of religion, Jewish civilization has flourished which has provided fertile ground for the promulgation of Jewish educational opportunities leading to discoveries and research. May America continue her policies of freedom and equal opportunity for all to share in and benefit!

But in this mammoth timetravel work hes set his sights on a loftier subject: Can a single person change history? The author rolls out the scenario early and in simple terms. Al Templeton, owner of an unpopular aluminum diner, is dying and the diner has been purchased by L.L. Bean. In his storage pantry Als discovered a rabbit hole to the past and its his dream to kill Lee Harvey Oswald before he can assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Alas, its too late for Al whos in the last stages of lung cancer and coughing blood into maxi-pads. He must talk Jake Epping, burnedout high school teacher and friend in gloomy Lisbon, Maine, to stand in for him. His is a powerful pitch: Save Kennedy, save his brother. Save Martin Luther King. Stop the race riots. Stop Vietnam, maybe. Get rid of one wretched waif, buddy, and you could save millions. Epping can leave 2011 and step back to Sept. 9, 1958. There are only two conditions. When you return, Al explains, theres a reset. Everything you did on your previous trip is erased like an Etch-aSketch. Accepting the terms Jake new identity George Amberson embarks on his mission to forestall that pivotal event of 11/22/63. Along the way the narrative is crammed with nostalgia sock hops. Elvis, beautiful big cars, drive-in movies, Kresges and Ban-Lon no doubt making some readers long for this less complicated time. Central to the story is a touching love affair with an attractive young Texas librarian who brightens Jake/Georges loner existence. King nursed the idea for /22/63 for 30 years but confesses that in 1971 he wasnt up to the research necessary for such a project. And the research hes conducted here is nothing short of stunning. Lee Oswald and wife Marina breathe on the pages that detail the killers relationships with family and cohorts. In depicting a wellknown historical event as entertaining and thought provoking, this book has it all. Heres a book to take you into the night or at 849 pages one to take you through the summer.

I must make a confession. It has taken me a long time to get to the place where I am willing and comfortable to make such an admission. I think some of my friends will be shocked at what I have to say. I think it is time I come clean and confess. Sort of, clean the air, so to speak. Simply put, I used to believe in leprechauns. I know that comes as a shock to all of my friends. At a distance, I look like a very reasonable, well-adjusted person. And the further away the better I look. The same thing goes with my distant relatives. The more distant they are the more I like them. Nobody would suspect that I had such a problem. You cannot tell what burdens people are carrying just by looking at them. It all came to me by way of reading books. When I was a young person, I read many books that had to do with leprechauns, rainbows and pots full of gold at the end of those rainbows. I was young and nave at the time and believed everything I read. Once while my father was sleeping on the couch I ask him if he believed in leprechauns and he grunted in such a way that I took it to mean that he also believed in them. If you cannot trust your father while he is sleeping, who in the world can you trust? Many a day I spent in the woods at the end of our property looking for leprechauns. I can testify that they are rather elusive creatures but several times, I almost caught one. They always were just a few seconds quicker than I was. I looked where I thought they were but they were nowhere to be found. Do not get me wrong here. I was never frustrated in my fruitless search of leprechauns. There is no better way to spend a day in the woods than searching for the elusive leprechaun. I began to think what I would do if I actually caught one. Then what would I do in the woods? It is always better to seek and not find than to find something and have to quit the seeking. I think it is something like fishermen. Few fishermen really fish for fish. They fish so they can go home and brag about the one that got away. It is hard to brag about the fish you caught and then there is the messy job of cleaning those fish. No, it is better to have fished and not caught anything to have fished and caught something that you have to take home and clean. Such were my thoughts concerning my leprechaun pursuit. Many an evening I entertained my parents with the exciting exploits of searching and almost catching a leprechaun today. I am sure they got tired of hearing, but I never tired of telling. Then the time came when I really had to face the facts. After almost a decade of diligently searching for leprechauns, I had to conclude that they were simply a figment of my imagination. And you know what happens to figs if you keep them around for a long time. I had to realize there were no such creatures as leprechauns. I must confess that it was a rather sad day for me. It was the beginning of many sad days like this. For instance, the day I realized Santa Claus was not real. Every year I diligently prepared my Christmas list starting out with, Dear Ole Santa, and dictated my list of Christmas hopefuls. Often I would sit on his lap and carefully read my list to him. The last time I did this my wife made me get off his lap. Something about being too big or something like that. To my recollection, he never made good on any of those requests. Jolly old soul? Phooey! Then there was the Easter Bunny. This had me for quite a while. After all, I love the chocolate Easter bunnies he brought me along with the rest of the candy. Unlike Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny was very generous in dousing me with candy galore. I truly hated putting the Easter Bunny away. Probably the last one I will mention would be when a politician says, I feel your pain. At first, I thought this was a genuine concern for my state of affairs. When I found out he was just playing me in his political theater I wanted him to feel some more of my pain. Pondering this I begin to realize that many things that I have believed in turned out not to be true. It is quite disconcerting when something you have believed in for a long time turns out to be phony. While I am confessing here, I must confess that only one thing has turned out not to be disappointing. That one thing has been the Bible. It has been the only thing that has not let me down in life. I take great comfort in Psalms 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Many things disappoint me and I have given them up. I start each day with the only thing that will never let me down, that is the Word of God. I believe the Bible. grade and older plus some adults who would like to volunteer and assist the teachers.

Chabad Lubavitch of Marion CountyChabad Lubavitch of Marion County will be hosting a Live Torah Reading of The Ten Commandments followed by a Dairy Buffet in honor of the Holiday of Shavuot. Join us Sunday, May 27, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ocala Hilton. Shavuot which celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai 3323 years ago is commemorated by the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogues on the 1st day of the holiday. Exquisite cheesecakes, pesto pastas, lasagna, and of course cheese blintzes all take center stage during this ancient celebration. Some suggest that this has contributed to the renewed popularity this holiday has seen. When thinking Jewish Holidays, Passover, Chanukah and Yom Kippur come to mind nevertheless Shavuot is considered one of Judaisms major holidays and was in fact a pilgrimage when all of Israel would travel to Jerusalem to celebrate in the Temple. No, it isnt all about the food, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht Director of Chabad Of Marion County and The Villages. What is important is that the community is joining together, hearing the Ten Commandments and celebrating the Torah. But the good food certainly helps! Not everyone can make it to the synagogue in the morning explains Rabbi Yossi Hecht so we have organized an afternoon reading of the Ten Commandments so all can attend. The Torah was given to everyone, men, women and children we are encouraging them to attend. Yizkor Memorial Services and holiday services followed by a Kiddush will be held at The Chabad Jewish Center 3500 SW 34th Ave. Circle Monday (Memorial Day), May 28 at 10 a.m. There is no cost to attend taxexempt donations are always welcome.

come through this tax increase from tourists. Yep tourists. Now, this may not generate as much income, say some of those who support the millage increase, but its totally equitable, so all residents are footing the bill. I picture in my mind, people buying cigarettes, alcohol and other unnecessary items who dont own property and are not paying a millage increase. I could go deeper but I dont think it would be printed. Now lets address President Obamas health care program. First, insurance companies and some businesses are vehemently against it as are a great number of Republicans. Now, if politicians have a hand, and are involved in it, its probably a good health care program. Get politicians involved in anything and it becomes a, will it get me re-elected or not approach. Having worked for the Congress and lobbied two legislatures, politicians are at the top of, whats in it for me, rung of the ladder. Most politicians are lawyers, so that should be self explaining. I was with Medicare from its inception back in July 1965, as a financial and medical auditor. I can tell you that people in the couple years leading up to Medicare being implemented, were just as opposed to Medicare as they are Obamacare. But, and it should be said proudly, that Obamacare is also a good thing. Its been implied that senior citizens would be adversely affected by Obamacare. Hogwash. More political mumbo jumbo. Then theres those people who either work for a company that doesnt provide health care, or those who cant afford health insurance as we know it, who will then have health care available to them. Think of the people who would be taken off the welfare and Medicaid rolls. Example. I know a person who was working for a company that didnt provide health care and his wife was in the same boat in her job. No family health care for the four family members. So, the father had to quit a job he liked, and took another job, only because it provided health care for his family. People, this is not an exception, this happens all the time. Its a fact that health care is expensive and we can blame insurance companies for that, not President Obama. After all, health care has been around for years and President Obama has only been in office a little over three years. You do the math. So, which do you prefer, life with health care or the alternative? The Republicans, through an ad on TV and the print medial, is accusing a person supporting Obamacare by calling it, the death program. How ridiculous is that? I guess it takes all kinds. Were on the verge of being the worst state in the country on education, lets not go the same route on health care.

Currently were in another drought. There will be others in the future. Accompanying the drought is a sinkhole alert. According to reports, Marion County has had the secondmost sinkholes in the state since the 1960s. Simply put, sinkholes are where water used to be. When rains return, water soaked earth will collapse into more sinkholes. Increased pumping will add to the likelihood of additional collapses. Granting water removal permits can become infectious, because others will claim what was OK for a goose should be OK for a gander. Additional applications from commercial bottlers are likely. As to the Adena Springs project, other commercial interests will note that Marion County has significant water resources available. Thats how the game is played. Marion County citizens should pressure elected officials to get on the citizens side in every battle of the water wars. They wont be able to lead folks to water after the aquifer runs dry. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don't walk in Oak Run The Oak Run retirement community woke up to new signs placed along its main boulevard. As we honor the brave men and women who fought to protect our freedom and rights, here in Oak Run we've had one of those freedoms taken away. Oak Run has no residential sidewalks, no cart paths except for the golf course, no bike or walking paths. It was designed with roads with no shoulders. Why not Watch for Pedestrians, Share the Road? Why not add a dirt shoulder as they tear up the boulevard. Is to protect drivers from walkers, walkers from drivers? I wonder what those brave soldiers fighting right now would think of a community that would deny its residents a walk down its boulevard to the community recreation center, or to Walmart, or to the bank, or a walk to maintain good health? I wonder how many retirement communities here in Ocala, or even in Florida, have banned residents from walking on their boulevards? Cherish the freedoms you have, for they can easily be taken away in the guise of protection. Maybe we should think about whom we really should be protected from!

Dear EarthTalk: What is the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign? Brian Howley, Washington, DC A project of the nonprofit Green America, the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign aims to empower consumers to advocate for more Fair Trade products on store shelves at their local supermarkets. Fair trade is a system of exchange that honors producers, communities and the environment by ensuring that farmers and artisans throughout the developing world are paid fair prices for their work and have direct involvement in the marketplace. The goal of the wider Fair Trade movement, according to Green America, is to build real and lasting relationships between producers in developing countries and businesses and consumers around the world. And thats where your neighborhood grocer comes in. While the Fair Trade movement is gaining steam nationwide, most of our supermarkets still carry fewif anyFair Trade products on their shelves, reports Green America. Together, we can put Fair Trade products within reach for millions of Americans. And just how does Green America expect us to do this? First, take stock of Fair Trade products in your supermarketlook for coffee, tea, chocolate, rice, sugar, honey, wine, fresh fruit, and olive oil. Scan the relevant aisles for thirdparty certifier Fair Trade USAs distinctive blackand-white Fair Trade Certified label, which is only attached to imported goods where the producers receive fair prices for their products and where strict socio-economic and environmental criteria are met during production. Alternatively, look for the logos of other thirdparty certifiers such as Fair for Life or Fair Trade Federation on product labels if you think fair trade versions may be available in a given product line. Then, you can encourage the store to stock more Fair Trade products by talking to the store manager as a loyal customer, adds Green America. They suggest using comment cards, which can be key to getting a store with no Fair Trade items to start carrying them. Every time you go grocery shopping, drop a comment card in the box asking your manager to stock Fair Trade items. Of course, talking to a store manager in person may be even more effective, especially if you are armed with a pile of your receipts from the store from the previous month or two to show how much spending power you alone would be able to allocate toward Fair Trade versions of the items you are buying there. Another creative way to spread the Fair Trade gospel would be by volunteering to hand out free samples of Fair Trade products that the store already sells in order to raise awareness and build consumer demand. Stores sell more of a product when a sampling table is set out, and if you, your friends and family are working the table, the labor is free for the store too. But why stop with your local market? If there is a chain supermarket outlet in your area, take it to the top by writing an e-mail, letter or postcard to corporate headquarters informing them of your desire to buy Fair Trade items in all of their stores. Check out the Fair Trade Your Supermarket website (link below) for more tips on how to make your next shopping trip fairer to the planet and its people.

Dear EarthTalk: The oil industry is planning what some call a dangerous strategy of drilling for oil on the Outer Continental Shelf in the Arctic Ocean. Whats going on? Vera Bailey, New Hope, PA In November 2011 the Obama administration began lifting the moratorium on off-shore drilling that had been imposed in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced a five year plan including 15 leases for oil development on Alaskas Outer Continental Shelf and in the Gulf of Mexico. For now the East and West coasts of the continental U.S. have been spared from drilling, but environmentalists are particularly worried about opening up the fragile Alaskan Arctic to off-shore rigs. This five-year program will make available for development more than three-quarters of undiscovered oil and gas resources estimated on the (Outer Continental Shelf), including frontier areas such as the Arctic, where we must proceed cautiously, safely and based on the best science available, Salazar told reporters. Republicans were incensed that more acreage was not being made available for off-shore drilling, but environmentalists couldnt believe what they were hearing for different reasons: In June 2011 the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) had released a 292-page report commissioned by Interior Secretary Salazar to identify the gaps in scientific or technical knowledge about how drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas north of Alaska would affect the region, reports Jerry Bellinson in Popular Mechanics. The report, Bellinson says, details several areas where those gaps exist, including oil-spill cleanup technologies, basic mapping of currents and the effects of underwater noise on sea mammals. Despite the USGSs warnings, the Obama administration decided to proceed anyway. Drilling infrastructure permanently alters ocean floor habitats, reports Defenders of Wildlife. Drill rig footprints, undersea pipelines, dredging ship channels, and dumped drill cuttings the rock material dug out of the oil or gas wellare often contaminated with drilling fluid used to lubricate and regulate the pressure in drilling operations. The group adds that contaminated sediments are carried long distances by currents and can kill important small bottom-dwelling creatures at the bottom of the marine food chain. Defenders also argues that spills, leaks and occasional BP-like catastrophes are unavoidable with off-shore oil drilling, if history is any guide. Even with safety protocols in place, leaks and spills are inevitable each year U.S. drilling operations send an average of 880,000 gallons of oil into the ocean. As for wildlife, off-shore drilling can have devastating effects even with no spills or leaks. Seismic surveys conducted during oil and gas exploration cause temporary or permanent hearing loss, induce behavioral changes, and even physically injure marine mammals such as whales, seals and dolphins, reports Defenders. Construction noise from new facilities and pipelines is also likely to interfere with foraging and communication behaviors of birds and mammals. Because they are at the top of the food chain, many marine mammals will be exposed to the dangers of bioaccumulation of organic pollutants and metals. And off-shore drilling only adds insult to injury as far as Defenders is concerned: In the face of the climate crisis, the U.S. needs to look for ways to decrease petroleum consumption, not increase it.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com P roperty law used to be a course which caused many prospective lawyers to consider whether they might serve mankind better as pharmacists or accountants. Perhaps the most difficult brain bender in property law is water rights. There are public waters, private waters, percolating waters, navigable waters, inland waters, flood waters, developed waters, surface waters, subterranean waters, surplus water, tide water, and waste water. Their common characteristic is wetness. Water is considered a property problem even though we cant walk on it or hold it in our hands. It is constantly subject to the laws of nature, such as gravity. For legal considerations water can be property temporarily, but if it escapes for even a moment, any claim of ownership is gone forever. The limit of food deprivation for humans varies by body mass (Women last longer for reasons which need not be discussed here). The limit of water deprivation also varies. On rare occasions some humans have survived up to nine days. Water is the most abundant molecule of the human body. There is human life on earth only because of the presence of water. Which raises the ongoing discussions about distribution of the water resources in Marion County. Water availability for the needs of humans should be considered paramount to all other claims and considerations. Whether were able to swim, fish, and be entertained by our water resources are secondary considerations. Recreational concerns about Silver Springs and local rivers offer some reasonable arguments for restriction of water removal permits, but theyre not paramount to the present and future survival needs of Marion County humans. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 T here were a couple of events last weekend that I attended that really brought into the limelight the change in recent technology. The first was the wedding of a family member Friday night, in which he invited everyone to take pictures with their cell phones and e-mail him the results, which he would compile and make available to everyone. Although he did have a friend who is a good photographer taking standard photos, and a couple of us used our digital cameras to take pictures, others did take him up on his offer. The second was a First Communion of a grandson on Sunday morning in St. Augustine Beach area. The church didnt want people using a flash during Mass, and although that didnt stop a few people, cell phones being used was a common sight. Quickly, there were many pictures of both events posted on Facebook. When we were growing up, this type of thing wasnt even a part of the imagination. Those same advances in technology have changed the way Americans look at war. During the wars early in our lives, except for a few grainy newsreels, the written word was the main description of the fighting. The Vietnam era changed that, with cameras and correspondents bringing the battles, and the deaths, right into our living rooms. That changed the way many people looked at war, but it also changed the way many people celebrated Memorial Day. Suddenly the day took on a more personal meaning, after we sat there and watched people die on our TV screens. Monday is Memorial Day, a day of honoring all those who died while fighting for their country. Its a national event, flags will fly, some places will have parades, many other places will have ceremonies. But for many people its a personal event. There are many among us who have lost friends or relatives in war (I lost an uncle one month after D-Day), and this is a particularly emotional day for those survivors who remember the heroes gone before us. So this coming Monday, amid the celebration, activities, beach visits and other fun times, take time to recall why this day is being celebrated. Without the sacrifices of these people who went before us into war, some of these celebrations might not be possible. On Memorial Day, thats worth remembering.

M emorial Day across the country is usually one of the least safe traffic weekends of the entire year. People from places where the ground is white all winter are suddenly unleashed on the roads, surrounded by greenery or, if they live near the coast, sand. After carefully negotiating slippery roads for months, they are turned loose to speed along dry highways to their party destinations. Hopefully, of course, people will remember what the day means, and take time to participate in events to recall those who gave their lives for our freedom. Here in Florida, we didnt have the wintry weather for the past few months, but there is still a sense of newfound freedom as we take to the roads for the first holiday of the season. Too many people throw caution to the wind, and that means the chances of accidents go up. Gas prices, which were pushing the $4 mark just a little while ago, have dropped by a significant amount, sometimes more than 10 percent, in the past few weeks, leading people to believe that traveling is a bargain. (Remember, when you buy that little bottle of water, you might be paying as much as $10 a gallon for water, but complaining about $4 a gallon for gas). The point is, we need for you to be safe this weekend. Law enforcement has just started a click it or ticket campaign to get people to wear seat belts, which is a law but, more importantly, involves common sense. We can be reasonably sure that aggressive drivers and speeders will also be targeted. So when you take to the road, use all the safety tools available, obey speed and traffic laws, and get where youre going safely. Dont ruin the weekend for your family by making them prepare for your funeral. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Be careful this holiday weekend Technology brought war into home Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Water, water everywhere, but only temporarily Same-sex marriageRecently President Obama publicly announced his support for same-sex marriage but not wanting to paint himself in a corner, his announcement was to support the decision, that is, if the individual states legislated the matter. Surely he is aware that the majority of states have already spoken on this subject and have rejected the concept. To serve his immediate political purposes, Amendment X (States Rights) was employed. This administration rarely before acknowledged States Rights. Persons of goodwill have or have had friends of homosexual persuasion who are highly regarded unmindful of their sexual orientation. Disagreement with the life style cannot deny earned esteem as Christians or as friends, we can do no less. Covenants between God and humans, as written in both the Old and New Testaments, contain condemnation of the practice of homosexuality not homosexual inclination, but the practice of homosexuality. Opponents of same-sex marriage are often classified as bigots. Such classification would thus include Protestant clergy and laity of different denominations, Catholic clergy and laity, writers of the Holy Scriptures, and throw into this mix of bigots Pope Benedict XVI, Rev. Dr. Billy Graham, and others of equal acclamation. Presents a dubious measure of bigotry, does it not? The majority of states reject the concept of same-sex marriage. Should all of these citizens who voted to reject be considered bigots? Due to abortion and contraceptive use, the USA birth rate is below replacement value. From a practical point of view, this is critical in the administration of any government that depends on a reliable work force to continue funding government programs. Needed are traditional marriages to increase birth rates, preferably children born within a committed relationship known as husband and wife. Same-sex marriages cannot achieve this goal.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he Indianapolis 500 Mile Race will be run this Sunday. Held annually for more than 100 years, the race consists of 200 laps run counterclockwise around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2.5 mile oval. The field consists of 33 starters with most of them going about 120 miles per hour and not texting, a rarity among todays drivers. President Obama has declined an offer to drive the celebrity pace car in the race. It appears he cant stand the appearance anymore of turning to the left. Our own driving will be along Pun Alley to see if we can find a racy story or two.Something Smells After last years Indianapolis 500 race, residents living near the track complained about the noise and pollution caused by the cars. But what disturbed them most was the putrid-smelling exhaust that continually emanated from the cars themselves. During the race they were rarely able to emerge from their homes without being assaulted by noxious fumes filling the air. Finally these residents had had enough, and they filed a suit against the Raceway for Indy scent exposure. 200 SyndromeA policeman saw a car puttering along at 17 mph creating a traffic backup. He stopped it and noticed five old ladies, two in the front and three in the back, eyes wide and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, said, Officer, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem? Maam, the officer replied, You should know that driving slower than the speed limit can be dangerous to other drivers. Slower than the speed limit? she said, I was doing the speed limit, 17 miles an hour! The officer explained that 17 was the highway number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman thanked him for pointing out her error. The officer asked, Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem awfully shaken and they havent muttered a single peep this whole time. Oh, theyll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Highway 200. Test DriveA man won the lottery and decided to buy a new sports car, even though he had hardly ever driven before. He convinced a salesman to let him try a Porsche. They went out on I-75 and the man quickly accelerated shifting past fourth gear, to fifth, then to sixth. While going at a very high speed the car suddenly shook, the engine exploded, the car swerved, and stopped. What did you do? yelled the salesman. Well, I was going so fast I ran out of numbered gears so I put it into R for Race. Sprints Riding on the highway is like Russian roulette; you never know which driver is loaded. When it comes to parking she does a bang-up job. The doctor told me that hed have me on my feet in no time. It worked. To pay his bill I had to sell my car. The person who has a second-hand car knows how hard it is to drive a bargain. A wife told her husband, Be an angel and let me drive. He did and he is. Famous racecar driver Richard Petty once got caught stealing; cops called it petty theft. Even when a racecar goes backwards, it is still spelled racecar. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie. I got stopped once for going fifty-three in a thirtyfive-mile-per-hour zone. I got off. I told them I had dyslexia. If you dont like the way women drive, get off the sidewalk. Avoidance at All CostsDriving down 200 a man had to swerve to avoid a box that fell from a truck. Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over and recovered the box. When he opened the box it contained large upholstery tacks. Im sorry sir, the policeman told the driver, but Im going to have to write you a ticket. Amazed, the driver asked, For what? The policeman replied, Tacks evasion.BlowupA man pulled into a gas station to put some air in his car tires because he had noticed they were a bit flat. How much is that? he asked the cashier? Ten dollars. Ten dollars! Thats expensive! Its only air! The cashier replied, Well, thats inflation for you. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Indy cars pay a visit to the roads of Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank When 4-year-old Kyli Taylor was diagnosed with leukemia May 1, it brought about big changes for her and her family. She was getting ready to start preschool, now shes getting ready for chemotherapy, said her mother, Linda Taylor. The Taylors live in Ocala, but Linda, husband Robert and Kyli have been spending most of their days at Shands at the University of Florida, where Kyli is receiving treatment. This Saturday, at LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, 1607 E. Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala, there will be a blood drive in Kylis honor, and there will be a bake sale and car wash to help cover the extra expenses the family is now facing. Linda explained that shes now on leave from her job at The Answer 2 answering service, so she can be with her daughter. Kylis illness also prompted the family to move, adding to the financial strain. Linda said when she worked, her company held blood drives. Now shes seen that blood in action, as Kyli has received transfusions of platelets and red blood cells. I knew it was a lifesaver, but I didnt know the specifics, she said. It was obviously a big eye-opener when she was diagnosed and we saw what it really does. The donor center opens at 9 a.m. Saturday, and the blood drive, car wash and bake sale will run until 2 p.m. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. For more information call 352-622-3544. Blood drive in honor of 4-year-old Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com A man who was allegedly caught stealing parts from an airconditioner was arrested outside Florida Citizens Bank on State Road 200. According to the report, Deputy John Rawls answered a call of a suspicious person behind the bank and carrying a hammer in his pocket. He was said to have walked to the vacant bank building across the street from Florida Citizens Bank at 8300 S.W. 200. When he arrived, Rawls saw a white cloud of vapor or smoke coming from the air conditioner enclosure of the vacant bank building. He approached on foot and saw the access doors were open. He could hear the sounds of metal on metal, sounds of impact and sounds consistent with metal being cut by a wire cutter or similar tool. Rawls looked inside and spotted Jody Duane Brechtel, 38, of Southwest 59th Street kneeling next to the compressor unit. After watching for several seconds, Rawls verbally identified himself and ordered the man to show his hands, which he did. The deputy asked him what he was doing and the suspect reportedly said, Times are tough. Brechtel was accused of burglary, attempted grand theft and possession of burglary tools. According to jail records, he was released on $6,000 bond. Charles Irving McKenney III, of Southwest 186th Court in Dunnellon, was accused of robbery by sudden snatching. A woman leaving Walgreens at 60th Avenue and State Road 200, had her purse grabbed by a man who then ran across to the area of CVS and left in a green van. Inside the purse was the womans medication which she had just purchased. Shortly after that, a deputy stopped a green van at West State Road 40 and 110th Avenue. McKenney was interviewed and subsequently arrested. As of Wednesday morning he was still in the Marion County Jail under a bond of $10,000.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Fallen Officers Memorial at the McPherson Complex in Ocala. A sizeable crowd attended the event, which featured the reading of all the names on the memorial as well as military-type honors. Speaker Judge Willard Pope described to the officers in attendance and the crowd the types of situations that they encountered and noted that sometimes officers had a half-second to make up their minds about the use of force. Some of you have called 10-24, shots fired, yet you choose to do this. You do it because thats who you are and thats what youre made of. Pope continued, If you dont fight against wrong, you become part of it. He told those gathered, Heroes dont wear capes, they wear badges. You meet the definition of a hero, because thats who you are and thats what you do. He said that the fallen officers would tell you they would do it all over again ...would want you to be careful ... and that there are no regrets. The ceremony featured the reading of the names by Chief Joanne Black of the Dunnellon Police Department. A memorial wreath was placed by Arlene Rutherford, in memory of Deputy William Rutherford of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who was killed Jan. 2, 1990, when his car was struck by a drunk driver, who also died in the crash. The Marion County Sheriffs Office Honor Guard, which recently won a national championship, performed in the parking lot. There was a flyover by air units, a 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps and a riderless horse. FALLENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The names of Marion Countys fallen officers are inscribed on the monument.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com A RIE S ( March 21 to April 19) You might have to turn your Arian charm up a few degrees if you hope to persuade that persistent pessimist to see the possibilities in your project. Whatever you do, dont give up. T A URU S ( April 20 to May 20) A tip about a coworkers betrayal might well raise the Bovines rage levels. But before charging into a confrontation, let an unbiased colleague do some fact checking. G E M I N I ( May 21 to J une 20) Although a relationship still seems to be moving too slowly to suit your expectations, its best not to push it. Let it develop at its own pace. Youll soon get news about a workplace change. CANC ER (J une 21 to J uly 22) A continually changing personal situation makes you feel as if youre riding an emotional roller coaster. But hold on tight; stability starts to set in early next week. LE O (J uly 23 to Aug 22) Believe it or not, someone might dare to say No! to the Regal Ones suggestion. But instead of being miffed, use this rebuff to recheck the proposition and, perhaps, make some changes. V IR GO ( Aug 23 to Sept 22) You might find it difficult to make a decision about a family matter. But delay can only lead to more problems. Seek out trusted counsel and then make that important decision. LI B R A ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) Concentrate your focus on what needs to be done, and avoid frittering away your energies on less-important pursuits. Therell be time later for fun and games. SCO R P I O ( Oct 23 to Nov 21) Although the conflicts seem to be letting up, you still need to be wary of being drawn into workplace intrigues. Plan a special weekend event for family and/or friends. SAG ITT A RIU S ( Nov 22 to Dec 21) Your quick wit helps you work through an already difficult situation without creating more problems. Creative aspects begin to dominate by the weeks end. CAP RI CO R N ( Dec 22 to J an 19) Be patient. Youll soon receive news about a project that means so much to you. Meanwhile, you might want to reconsider a suggestion you previously turned down. A QU A RIU S (J an 20 to Feb 18) There are still some aspects about that new job offer you need to resolve. In the meantime, another possibility seems promising. Be sure to check that out as well. P I SC E S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Opening up your emotional floodgates could leave you vulnerable to being hurt later on. Watch what you say, in order to avoid having your words come back to haunt you. BO R N T H I S WEEK: Youre usually the life of the party, which gets you on everyones invitation list.

When she was 14, her dad took off time from his plumbing and heating shop and they traveled all around the western part of the country. Among the places she visited was the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park. Later, her folks wintered in Florida, and I always liked it here. She decided to retire when she was vice president of a sheet metal corporation in Georgia, and 27 years ago moved into the home in Pine Run which is still hers today. Heloese plans on taking the Honor Flight in October. I think it's a good thing. I really want to see the World War II memorial. Part of the time she was in radio training, she was in the D.C. area, so she says she has seen most of the sights in the nation's capital. I don't think too many young people know much about the war and its history. She didn't lose anyone in the war, but had a brother, Leotus Sutter, and a brother-in-law, Lewis Dukes. Dukes was in France and lost an eye. He was a farmer, he drove, and played softball, so it didn't stop him. She has relatives in Florida, including two daughters, a niece, and three grandchildren. She also praised a neighbor who helps her as much as possible. Heloese walks comfortably around her home, but uses a walker on her slanted driveway. She had only one moment when she said she wished things were different. The hardest thing I ever had to do was give up my car, she said.Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

After her upbringing in Pandora, Ohio, she joined the Waves, and went to radio school. Eventually she found her way to Cape Cod, where she searched for and copied German communications. We had stations up and down the East Coast, she said. She and her fellow operators would notify the Navy when a German sub was surfacing, so the submarines could be bombed. Eventually they got wise to what we were doing, Bennett said, and they would drop oil. The oil on the surface would make the U.S. think the subs had been hit. They were crafty about things. After the Germans surrendered, Bennett transferred to Washington state and did the same thing against the Japanese. She stayed out there until the Japanese surrendered. She and her friends would stand out near the coast and wave at the American ships returning to port. After the war, she went to Kansas City and attended air traffic control school, but instead got married. She eventually moved to Columbus, Georgia, where she met her second husband.

Two men originally arrested for stealing more than $6,000 worth of tires were arrested again Monday night. Ameh Ruiz, 26, and Andrew Weinreich, 21, were accused of taking the tires and other merchandise from the Walmart on State Road 200. Around 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, deputies received a phone call from a Walmart employee advising that two mens had taken several sets of new tires from the store without paying, and loaded them into a Budget rental truck. The truck was seen heading east on State Road 200. Deputies located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Weinreich was driving the truck. Inside, deputies located 27 new tires. Weinreichs wife, Chantelle, told deputies more stolen property could be located at the Ruiz motel room and Weinreichs residence.

When she was 14, her dad took off time from his plumbing and heating shop and they traveled all around the western part of the country. Among the places she visited was the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park. Later, her folks wintered in Florida, and I always liked it here. She decided to retire when she was vice president of a sheet metal corporation in Georgia, and 27 years ago moved into the home in Pine Run which is still hers today. Heloese plans on taking the Honor Flight in October. I think it's a good thing. I really want to see the World War II memorial. Part of the time she was in radio training, she was in the D.C. area, so she says she has seen most of the sights in the nation's capital. I don't think too many young people know much about the war and its history. She didn't lose anyone in the war, but had a brother, Leotus Sutter, and a brother-in-law, Lewis Dukes. Dukes was in France and lost an eye. He was a farmer, he drove, and played softball, so it didn't stop him. She has relatives in Florida, including two daughters, a niece, and three grandchildren. She also praised a neighbor who helps her as much as possible. Heloese walks comfortably around her home, but uses a walker on her slanted driveway. She had only one moment when she said she wished things were different. The hardest thing I ever had to do was give up my car, she said.Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

Whatever you do, dont give up. TA URUS ( April 20 to May 20) A tip about a coworkers betrayal might well raise the Bovines rage levels. But before charging into a confrontation, let an unbiased colleague do some fact checking. GEMINI ( May 21 to J une 20) Although a relationship still seems to be moving too slowly to suit your expectations, its best not to push it. Let it develop at its own pace. Youll soon get news about a workplace change. CANCER (June 21 to J uly 22) A continually changing personal situation makes you feel as if youre riding an emotional roller coaster. But hold on tight; stability starts to set in early next week. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Believe it or not, someone might dare to say No! to the Regal Ones suggestion. But instead of being miffed, use this rebuff to recheck the proposition and, perhaps, make some changes. V IRGO ( Aug 23 to Sept. 22) You might find it difficult to make a decision about a family matter. But delay can only lead to more problems. Seek out trusted counsel and then make that important decision. LIBR A ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Concentrate your focus on what needs to be done, and avoid frittering away your energies on less-important pursuits. Therell be time later for fun and games. SCORPI O ( Oct. 23 to Nov 21) Although the conflicts seem to be letting up, you still need to be wary of being drawn into workplace intrigues. Plan a special weekend event for family and/or friends. SAGITT A RIUS ( Nov 22 to Dec. 21) Your quick wit helps you work through an already difficult situation without creating more problems. Creative aspects begin to dominate by the weeks end. CAP RICOR N ( Dec. 22 to J an. 19) Be patient. Youll soon receive news about a project that means so much to you. Meanwhile, you might want to reconsider a suggestion you previously turned down. A QU A RIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb 18) There are still some aspects about that new job offer you need to resolve. In the meantime, another possibility seems promising. Be sure to check that out as well. PI SCE S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Opening up your emotional floodgates could leave you vulnerable to being hurt later on. Watch what you say, in order to avoid having your words come back to haunt you. BOR N THI S WEEK: Youre usually the life of the party, which gets you on everyones invitation list. You also have a flair for politics. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Fallen Officers Memorial at the McPherson Complex in Ocala. A sizeable crowd attended the event, which featured the reading of all the names on the memorial as well as military-type honors. Speaker Judge Willard Pope described to the officers in attendance and the crowd the types of situations that they encountered and noted that sometimes officers had a half-second to make up their minds about the use of force. Some of you have called 10-24, shots fired, yet you choose to do this. You do it because thats who you are and thats what youre made of. Pope continued, If you dont fight against wrong, you become part of it. He told those gathered, Heroes dont wear capes, they wear badges. You meet the definition of a hero, because thats who you are and thats what you do. He said that the fallen officers would tell you they would do it all over again ...would want you to be careful ... and that there are no regrets. The ceremony featured the reading of the names by Chief Joanne Black of the Dunnellon Police Department. A memorial wreath was placed by Arlene Rutherford, in memory of Deputy William Rutherford of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who was killed Jan. 2, 1990, when his car was struck by a drunk driver, who also died in the crash. The Marion County Sheriffs Office Honor Guard, which recently won a national championship, performed in the parking lot. There was a flyover by air units, a 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps and a riderless horse. FALLENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The names of Marion Countys fallen officers are inscribed on the monument.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The Indianapolis 500 Mile Race will be run this Sunday. Held annually for more than 100 years, the race consists of 200 laps run counterclockwise around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2.5 mile oval. The field consists of 33 starters with most of them going about 120 miles per hour and not texting, a rarity among todays drivers. President Obama has declined an offer to drive the celebrity pace car in the race. It appears he cant stand the appearance anymore of turning to the left. Our own driving will be along Pun Alley to see if we can find a racy story or two.Something SmellsAfter last years Indianapolis 500 race, residents living near the track complained about the noise and pollution caused by the cars. But what disturbed them most was the putrid-smelling exhaust that continually emanated from the cars themselves. During the race they were rarely able to emerge from their homes without being assaulted by noxious fumes filling the air. Finally these residents had had enough, and they filed a suit against the Raceway for Indy scent exposure.200 SyndromeA policeman saw a car puttering along at 17 mph creating a traffic backup. He stopped it and noticed five old ladies, two in the front and three in the back, eyes wide and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, said, Officer, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem? Maam, the officer replied, You should know that driving slower than the speed limit can be dangerous to other drivers. Slower than the speed limit? she said, I was doing the speed limit, 17 miles an hour! The officer explained that 17 was the highway number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman thanked him for pointing out her error. The officer asked, Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem awfully shaken and they havent muttered a single peep this whole time. Oh, theyll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Highway 200.Test DriveA man won the lottery and decided to buy a new sports car, even though he had hardly ever driven before. He convinced a salesman to let him try a Porsche. They went out on I-75 and the man quickly accelerated shifting past fourth gear, to fifth, then to sixth. While going at a very high speed the car suddenly shook, the engine exploded, the car swerved, and stopped. What did you do? yelled the salesman. Well, I was going so fast I ran out of numbered gears so I put it into R for Race.SprintsRiding on the highway is like Russian roulette; you never know which driver is loaded. When it comes to parking she does a bang-up job. The doctor told me that hed have me on my feet in no time. It worked. To pay his bill I had to sell my car. The person who has a second-hand car knows how hard it is to drive a bargain. A wife told her husband, Be an angel and let me drive. He did and he is. Famous racecar driver Richard Petty once got caught stealing; cops called it petty theft. Even when a racecar goes backwards, it is still spelled racecar. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie. I got stopped once for going fifty-three in a thirtyfive-mile-per-hour zone. I got off. I told them I had dyslexia. If you dont like the way women drive, get off the sidewalk.Avoidance at All CostsDriving down 200 a man had to swerve to avoid a box that fell from a truck. Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over and recovered the box. When he opened the box it contained large upholstery tacks. Im sorry sir, the policeman told the driver, but Im going to have to write you a ticket. Amazed, the driver asked, For what? The policeman replied, Tacks evasion.BlowupA man pulled into a gas station to put some air in his car tires because he had noticed they were a bit flat. How much is that? he asked the cashier? Ten dollars. Ten dollars! Thats expensive! Its only air! The cashier replied, Well, thats inflation for you.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Indy cars pay a visit to the roads of Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank When 4-year-old Kyli Taylor was diagnosed with leukemia May 1, it brought about big changes for her and her family. She was getting ready to start preschool, now shes getting ready for chemotherapy, said her mother, Linda Taylor. The Taylors live in Ocala, but Linda, husband Robert and Kyli have been spending most of their days at Shands at the University of Florida, where Kyli is receiving treatment. This Saturday, at LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, 1607 E. Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala, there will be a blood drive in Kylis honor, and there will be a bake sale and car wash to help cover the extra expenses the family is now facing. Linda explained that shes now on leave from her job at The Answer 2 answering service, so she can be with her daughter. Kylis illness also prompted the family to move, adding to the financial strain. Linda said when she worked, her company held blood drives. Now shes seen that blood in action, as Kyli has received transfusions of platelets and red blood cells. I knew it was a lifesaver, but I didnt know the specifics, she said. It was obviously a big eye-opener when she was diagnosed and we saw what it really does. The donor center opens at 9 a.m. Saturday, and the blood drive, car wash and bake sale will run until 2 p.m. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. For more information call 352-622-3544. Blood drive in honor of 4-year-old Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Aman who was allegedly caught stealing parts from an airconditioner was arrested outside Florida Citizens Bank on State Road 200. According to the report, Deputy John Rawls answered a call of a suspicious person behind the bank and carrying a hammer in his pocket. He was said to have walked to the vacant bank building across the street from Florida Citizens Bank at 8300 S.W. 200. When he arrived, Rawls saw a white cloud of vapor or smoke coming from the air conditioner enclosure of the vacant bank building. He approached on foot and saw the access doors were open. He could hear the sounds of metal on metal, sounds of impact and sounds consistent with metal being cut by a wire cutter or similar tool. Rawls looked inside and spotted Jody Duane Brechtel, 38, of Southwest 59th Street kneeling next to the compressor unit. After watching for several seconds, Rawls verbally identified himself and ordered the man to show his hands, which he did. The deputy asked him what he was doing and the suspect reportedly said, Times are tough. Brechtel was accused of burglary, attempted grand theft and possession of burglary tools. According to jail records, he was released on $6,000 bond. Charles Irving McKenney III, of Southwest 186th Court in Dunnellon, was accused of robbery by sudden snatching. A woman leaving Walgreens at 60th Avenue and State Road 200, had her purse grabbed by a man who then ran across to the area of CVS and left in a green van. Inside the purse was the womans medication which she had just purchased. Shortly after that, a deputy stopped a green van at West State Road 40 and 110th Avenue. McKenney was interviewed and subsequently arrested. As of Wednesday morning he was still in the Marion County Jail under a bond of $10,000. Purse snatched outside drug store, suspect arrested COP SHOP Donation of transport van soughtSheltering Hands Animal Rescue is seeking a donation of a cargo van to transport cats in their Community Cats Program to spay and neuter.

Dear EarthTalk: What is the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign? Brian Howley, Washington, DC A project of the nonprofit Green America, the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign aims to empower consumers to advocate for more Fair Trade products on store shelves at their local supermarkets. Fair trade is a system of exchange that honors producers, communities and the environment by ensuring that farmers and artisans throughout the developing world are paid fair prices for their work and have direct involvement in the marketplace. The goal of the wider Fair Trade movement, according to Green America, is to build real and lasting relationships between producers in developing countries and businesses and consumers around the world. And thats where your neighborhood grocer comes in. While the Fair Trade movement is gaining steam nationwide, most of our supermarkets still carry fewif anyFair Trade products on their shelves, reports Green America. Together, we can put Fair Trade products within reach for millions of Americans. And just how does Green America expect us to do this? First, take stock of Fair Trade products in your supermarketlook for coffee, tea, chocolate, rice, sugar, honey, wine, fresh fruit, and olive oil. Scan the relevant aisles for thirdparty certifier Fair Trade USAs distinctive blackand-white Fair Trade Certified label, which is only attached to imported goods where the producers receive fair prices for their products and where strict socio-economic and environmental criteria are met during production. Alternatively, look for the logos of other thirdparty certifiers such as Fair for Life or Fair Trade Federation on product labels if you think fair trade versions may be available in a given product line. Then, you can encourage the store to stock more Fair Trade products by talking to the store manager as a loyal customer, adds Green America. They suggest using comment cards, which can be key to getting a store with no Fair Trade items to start carrying them. Every time you go grocery shopping, drop a comment card in the box asking your manager to stock Fair Trade items. Of course, talking to a store manager in person may be even more effective, especially if you are armed with a pile of your receipts from the store from the previous month or two to show how much spending power you alone would be able to allocate toward Fair Trade versions of the items you are buying there. Another creative way to spread the Fair Trade gospel would be by volunteering to hand out free samples of Fair Trade products that the store already sells in order to raise awareness and build consumer demand. Stores sell more of a product when a sampling table is set out, and if you, your friends and family are working the table, the labor is free for the store too. But why stop with your local market? If there is a chain supermarket outlet in your area, take it to the top by writing an e-mail, letter or postcard to corporate headquarters informing them of your desire to buy Fair Trade items in all of their stores.

Whats going on? Vera Bailey, New Hope, PA In November 2011 the Obama administration began lifting the moratorium on off-shore drilling that had been imposed in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced a five year plan including 15 leases for oil development on Alaskas Outer Continental Shelf and in the Gulf of Mexico. For now the East and West coasts of the continental U.S. have been spared from drilling, but environmentalists are particularly worried about opening up the fragile Alaskan Arctic to off-shore rigs. This five-year program will make available for development more than three-quarters of undiscovered oil and gas resources estimated on the (Outer Continental Shelf), including frontier areas such as the Arctic, where we must proceed cautiously, safely and based on the best science available, Salazar told reporters. Republicans were incensed that more acreage was not being made available for off-shore drilling, but environmentalists couldnt believe what they were hearing for different reasons: In June 2011 the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) had released a 292-page report commissioned by Interior Secretary Salazar to identify the gaps in scientific or technical knowledge about how drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas north of Alaska would affect the region, reports Jerry Bellinson in Popular Mechanics. The report, Bellinson says, details several areas where those gaps exist, including oil-spill cleanup technologies, basic mapping of currents and the effects of underwater noise on sea mammals. Despite the USGSs warnings, the Obama administration decided to proceed anyway. Drilling infrastructure permanently alters ocean floor habitats, reports Defenders of Wildlife. Drill rig footprints, undersea pipelines, dredging ship channels, and dumped drill cuttings the rock material dug out of the oil or gas wellare often contaminated with drilling fluid used to lubricate and regulate the pressure in drilling operations. The group adds that contaminated sediments are carried long distances by currents and can kill important small bottom-dwelling creatures at the bottom of the marine food chain. Defenders also argues that spills, leaks and occasional BP-like catastrophes are unavoidable with off-shore oil drilling, if history is any guide. Even with safety protocols in place, leaks and spills are inevitable each year U.S. drilling operations send an average of 880,000 gallons of oil into the ocean. As for wildlife, off-shore drilling can have devastating effects even with no spills or leaks. Seismic surveys conducted during oil and gas exploration cause temporary or permanent hearing loss, induce behavioral changes, and even physically injure marine mammals such as whales, seals and dolphins, reports Defenders. Construction noise from new facilities and pipelines is also likely to interfere with foraging and communication behaviors of birds and mammals. Because they are at the top of the food chain, many marine mammals will be exposed to the dangers of bioaccumulation of organic pollutants and metals. And off-shore drilling only adds insult to injury as far as Defenders is concerned: In the face of the climate crisis, the U.S. needs to look for ways to decrease petroleum consumption, notincrease it.Contacts: Defenders of Wildlife, www.defenders.org; Popular Mechanics, www.popularmechanics.com/science /energy/coal-oil-gas/oildrilling-in-the-arcticocean-is-it-safe.EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

Perhaps the most difficult brain bender in property law is water rights. There are public waters, private waters, percolating waters, navigable waters, inland waters, flood waters, developed waters, surface waters, subterranean waters, surplus water, tide water, and waste water. Their common characteristic is wetness. Water is considered a property problem even though we cant walk on it or hold it in our hands. It is constantly subject to the laws of nature, such as gravity. For legal considerations water can be property temporarily, but if it escapes for even a moment, any claim of ownership is gone forever. The limit of food deprivation for humans varies by body mass (Women last longer for reasons which need not be discussed here). The limit of water deprivation also varies. On rare occasions some humans have survived up to nine days. Water is the most abundant molecule of the human body. There is human life on earth only because of the presence of water. Which raises the ongoing discussions about distribution of the water resources in Marion County. Water availability for the needs of humans should be considered paramount to all other claims and considerations. Whether were able to swim, fish, and be entertained by our water resources are secondary considerations. Recreational concerns about Silver Springs and local rivers offer some reasonable arguments for restriction of water removal permits, but theyre not paramount to the present and future survival needs of Marion County humans. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 25, 2012 There were a couple of events last weekend that I attended that really brought into the limelight the change in recent technology. The first was the wedding of a family member Friday night, in which he invited everyone to take pictures with their cell phones and e-mail him the results, which he would compile and make available to everyone. Although he did have a friend who is a good photographer taking standard photos, and a couple of us used our digital cameras to take pictures, others did take him up on his offer. The second was a First Communion of a grandson on Sunday morning in St. Augustine Beach area. The church didnt want people using a flash during Mass, and although that didnt stop a few people, cell phones being used was a common sight. Quickly, there were many pictures of both events posted on Facebook. When we were growing up, this type of thing wasnt even a part of the imagination. Those same advances in technology have changed the way Americans look at war. During the wars early in our lives, except for a few grainy newsreels, the written word was the main description of the fighting. The Vietnam era changed that, with cameras and correspondents bringing the battles, and the deaths, right into our living rooms. That changed the way many people looked at war, but it also changed the way many people celebrated Memorial Day. Suddenly the day took on a more personal meaning, after we sat there and watched people die on our TV screens. Monday is Memorial Day, a day of honoring all those who died while fighting for their country. Its a national event, flags will fly, some places will have parades, many other places will have ceremonies. But for many people its a personal event. There are many among us who have lost friends or relatives in war (I lost an uncle one month after D-Day), and this is a particularly emotional day for those survivors who remember the heroes gone before us. So this coming Monday, amid the celebration, activities, beach visits and other fun times, take time to recall why this day is being celebrated. Without the sacrifices of these people who went before us into war, some of these celebrations might not be possible. On Memorial Day, thats worth remembering.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

Memorial Day across the country is usually one of the least safe traffic weekends of the entire year. People from places where the ground is white all winter are suddenly unleashed on the roads, surrounded by greenery or, if they live near the coast, sand. After carefully negotiating slippery roads for months, they are turned loose to speed along dry highways to their party destinations. Hopefully, of course, people will remember what the day means, and take time to participate in events to recall those who gave their lives for our freedom. Here in Florida, we didnt have the wintry weather for the past few months, but there is still a sense of newfound freedom as we take to the roads for the first holiday of the season. Too many people throw caution to the wind, and that means the chances of accidents go up. Gas prices, which were pushing the $4 mark just a little while ago, have dropped by a significant amount, sometimes more than 10 percent, in the past few weeks, leading people to believe that traveling is a bargain. (Remember, when you buy that little bottle of water, you might be paying as much as $10 a gallon for water, but complaining about $4 a gallon for gas). The point is, we need for you to be safe this weekend. Law enforcement has just started a click it or ticket campaign to get people to wear seat belts, which is a law but, more importantly, involves common sense. We can be reasonably sure that aggressive drivers and speeders will also be targeted. So when you take to the road, use all the safety tools available, obey speed and traffic laws, and get where youre going safely. Dont ruin the weekend for your family by making them prepare for your funeral.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Be careful this holiday weekend Technology brought war into home Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Water, water everywhere, but only temporarily Same-sex marriageRecently President Obama publicly announced his support for same-sex marriage but not wanting to paint himself in a corner, his announcement was to support the decision, that is, if the individual states legislated the matter. Surely he is aware that the majority of states have already spoken on this subject and have rejected the concept. To serve his immediate political purposes, Amendment X (States Rights) was employed. This administration rarely before acknowledged States Rights. Persons of goodwill have or have had friends of homosexual persuasion who are highly regarded unmindful of their sexual orientation. Disagreement with the life style cannot deny earned esteem as Christians or as friends, we can do no less. Covenants between God and humans, as written in both the Old and New Testaments, contain condemnation of the practice of homosexuality not homosexual inclination, but the practice of homosexuality. Opponents of same-sex marriage are often classified as bigots. Such classification would thus include Protestant clergy and laity of different denominations, Catholic clergy and laity, writers of the Holy Scriptures, and throw into this mix of bigots Pope Benedict XVI, Rev. Dr. Billy Graham, and others of equal acclamation. Presents a dubious measure of bigotry, does it not? The majority of states reject the concept of same-sex marriage. Should all of these citizens who voted to reject be considered bigots? Due to abortion and contraceptive use, the USA birth rate is below replacement value. From a practical point of view, this is critical in the administration of any government that depends on a reliable work force to continue funding government programs. Needed are traditional marriages to increase birth rates, preferably children born within a committed relationship known as husband and wife. Same-sex marriages cannot achieve this goal.

Currently were in another drought. There will be others in the future. Accompanying the drought is a sinkhole alert. According to reports, Marion County has had the secondmost sinkholes in the state since the 1960s. Simply put, sinkholes are where water used to be. When rains return, water soaked earth will collapse into more sinkholes. Increased pumping will add to the likelihood of additional collapses. Granting water removal permits can become infectious, because others will claim what was OK for a goose should be OK for a gander. Additional applications from commercial bottlers are likely. As to the Adena Springs project, other commercial interests will note that Marion County has significant water resources available. Thats how the game is played. Marion County citizens should pressure elected officials to get on the citizens side in every battle of the water wars. They wont be able to lead folks to water after the aquifer runs dry. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don't walk in Oak RunThe Oak Run retirement community woke up to new signs placed along its main boulevard. As we honor the brave men and women who fought to protect our freedom and rights, here in Oak Run we've had one of those freedoms taken away. Oak Run has no residential sidewalks, no cart paths except for the golf course, no bike or walking paths. It was designed with roads with no shoulders. Why not Watch for Pedestrians, Share the Road? Why not add a dirt shoulder as they tear up the boulevard. Is to protect drivers from walkers, walkers from drivers? I wonder what those brave soldiers fighting right now would think of a community that would deny its residents a walk down its boulevard to the community recreation center, or to Walmart, or to the bank, or a walk to maintain good health? I wonder how many retirement communities here in Ocala, or even in Florida, have banned residents from walking on their boulevards? Cherish the freedoms you have, for they can easily be taken away in the guise of protection. Maybe we should think about whom we really should be protected from!

come through this tax increase from tourists. Yep tourists. Now, this may not generate as much income, say some of those who support the millage increase, but its totally equitable, so all residents are footing the bill. I picture in my mind, people buying cigarettes, alcohol and other unnecessary items who dont own property and are not paying a millage increase. I could go deeper but I dont think it would be printed. Now lets address President Obamas health care program. First, insurance companies and some businesses are vehemently against it as are a great number of Republicans. Now, if politicians have a hand, and are involved in it, its probably a good health care program. Get politicians involved in anything and it becomes a, will it get me re-elected or not approach. Having worked for the Congress and lobbied two legislatures, politicians are at the top of, whats in it for me, rung of the ladder. Most politicians are lawyers, so that should be self explaining. I was with Medicare from its inception back in July 1965, as a financial and medical auditor. I can tell you that people in the couple years leading up to Medicare being implemented, were just as opposed to Medicare as they are Obamacare. But, and it should be said proudly, that Obamacare is also a good thing. Its been implied that senior citizens would be adversely affected by Obamacare. Hogwash. More political mumbo jumbo. Then theres those people who either work for a company that doesnt provide health care, or those who cant afford health insurance as we know it, who will then have health care available to them. Think of the people who would be taken off the welfare and Medicaid rolls. Example. I know a person who was working for a company that didnt provide health care and his wife was in the same boat in her job. No family health care for the four family members. So, the father had to quit a job he liked, and took another job, only because it provided health care for his family. People, this is not an exception, this happens all the time. Its a fact that health care is expensive and we can blame insurance companies for that, not President Obama. After all, health care has been around for years and President Obama has only been in office a little over three years. You do the math. So, which do you prefer, life with health care or the alternative? The Republicans, through an ad on TV and the print medial, is accusing a person supporting Obamacare by calling it, the death program. How ridiculous is that? I guess it takes all kinds. Were on the verge of being the worst state in the country on education, lets not go the same route on health care.

Imust make a confession. It has taken me a long time to get to the place where I am willing and comfortable to make such an admission. I think some of my friends will be shocked at what I have to say. I think it is time I come clean and confess. Sort of, clean the air, so to speak. Simply put, I used to believe in leprechauns. I know that comes as a shock to all of my friends. At a distance, I look like a very reasonable, well-adjusted person. And the further away the better I look. The same thing goes with my distant relatives. The more distant they are the more I like them. Nobody would suspect that I had such a problem. You cannot tell what burdens people are carrying just by looking at them. It all came to me by way of reading books. When I was a young person, I read many books that had to do with leprechauns, rainbows and pots full of gold at the end of those rainbows. I was young and nave at the time and believed everything I read. Once while my father was sleeping on the couch I ask him if he believed in leprechauns and he grunted in such a way that I took it to mean that he also believed in them. If you cannot trust your father while he is sleeping, who in the world can you trust? Many a day I spent in the woods at the end of our property looking for leprechauns. I can testify that they are rather elusive creatures but several times, I almost caught one. They always were just a few seconds quicker than I was. I looked where I thought they were but they were nowhere to be found. Do not get me wrong here. I was never frustrated in my fruitless search of leprechauns. There is no better way to spend a day in the woods than searching for the elusive leprechaun. I began to think what I would do if I actually caught one. Then what would I do in the woods? It is always better to seek and not find than to find something and have to quit the seeking. I think it is something like fishermen. Few fishermen really fish for fish. They fish so they can go home and brag about the one that got away. It is hard to brag about the fish you caught and then there is the messy job of cleaning those fish. No, it is better to have fished and not caught anything to have fished and caught something that you have to take home and clean. Such were my thoughts concerning my leprechaun pursuit. Many an evening I entertained my parents with the exciting exploits of searching and almost catching a leprechaun today. I am sure they got tired of hearing, but I never tired of telling. Then the time came when I really had to face the facts. After almost a decade of diligently searching for leprechauns, I had to conclude that they were simply a figment of my imagination. And you know what happens to figs if you keep them around for a long time. I had to realize there were no such creatures as leprechauns. I must confess that it was a rather sad day for me. It was the beginning of many sad days like this. For instance, the day I realized Santa Claus was not real. Every year I diligently prepared my Christmas list starting out with, Dear Ole Santa, and dictated my list of Christmas hopefuls. Often I would sit on his lap and carefully read my list to him. The last time I did this my wife made me get off his lap. Something about being too big or something like that. To my recollection, he never made good on any of those requests. Jolly old soul? Phooey! Then there was the Easter Bunny. This had me for quite a while. After all, I love the chocolate Easter bunnies he brought me along with the rest of the candy. Unlike Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny was very generous in dousing me with candy galore. I truly hated putting the Easter Bunny away. Probably the last one I will mention would be when a politician says, I feel your pain. At first, I thought this was a genuine concern for my state of affairs. When I found out he was just playing me in his political theater I wanted him to feel some more of my pain. Pondering this I begin to realize that many things that I have believed in turned out not to be true. It is quite disconcerting when something you have believed in for a long time turns out to be phony. While I am confessing here, I must confess that only one thing has turned out not to be disappointing. That one thing has been the Bible. It has been the only thing that has not let me down in life. I take great comfort in Psalms 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Many things disappoint me and I have given them up. I start each day with the only thing that will never let me down, that is the Word of God. I believe the Bible. grade and older plus some adults who would like to volunteer and assist the teachers.

Chabad Lubavitch of Marion CountyChabad Lubavitch of Marion County will be hosting a Live Torah Reading of The Ten Commandments followed by a Dairy Buffet in honor of the Holiday of Shavuot. Join us Sunday, May 27, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ocala Hilton. Shavuot which celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai 3323 years ago is commemorated by the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogues on the 1st day of the holiday. Exquisite cheesecakes, pesto pastas, lasagna, and of course cheese blintzes all take center stage during this ancient celebration. Some suggest that this has contributed to the renewed popularity this holiday has seen. When thinking Jewish Holidays, Passover, Chanukah and Yom Kippur come to mind nevertheless Shavuot is considered one of Judaisms major holidays and was in fact a pilgrimage when all of Israel would travel to Jerusalem to celebrate in the Temple. No, it isnt all about the food, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht Director of Chabad Of Marion County and The Villages. What is important is that the community is joining together, hearing the Ten Commandments and celebrating the Torah. But the good food certainly helps! Not everyone can make it to the synagogue in the morning explains Rabbi Yossi Hecht so we have organized an afternoon reading of the Ten Commandments so all can attend. The Torah was given to everyone, men, women and children we are encouraging them to attend. Yizkor Memorial Services and holiday services followed by a Kiddush will be held at The Chabad Jewish Center 3500 SW 34th Ave. Circle Monday (Memorial Day), May 28 at 10 a.m. There is no cost to attend taxexempt donations are always welcome.

May is Jewish American Heritage Month. What better way to honor this than by showcasing those Jewish individuals who have contributed so much to American society and to the betterment of humankind as a whole. The list is long, the column is short, but I will try to highlight as many as I can in the various fields of achievement. In the world of entertainment we have: Woody Allen, Fyvush Finkel, Lee Grant, George Burns, William Friedkin, Beatrice Arthur, Jack Albertson, Martin Balsam, Sid Caesar, Peter Falk, Richard Dreyfuss, Kirk Douglas. Also Joel Grey, Dustin Hoffman, Goldie Hawn, Judy Holliday and the list goes on and on! Our honor roll of justices include Benjamin Cardozo, Louis Brandeis, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the newest female member, also a Reconstructionist Jew, Elena Kagan. What is life without art? The following artists, photographers, sculptors and photojournalists, have opened our eyes to the world around us: Diane Arbus, Lila Asher, Richard Avedon, Leonard Baskin, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Annie Leibovitz, Jack Levine, Maurice Sendak, (illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are)Art Spiegelman and so many others! The Jewish liturgy is filled with song. It is no wonder that so many Jewish-Americans are involved with the music scene. My offerings in this category include: Isaac Stern, Roberta Peters, Marvin Hamlisch, Morton Gould, Elmer Bernstein, George and Ira Gershwin, Randy Newman, Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond. Barbra Streisand, Aaron Copeland, Jascha Heifetz, Carole King, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel and others who would do anything for a song. The Jewish world is not all work and no play. Outstanding personages in the sporting life include: Hank Greenberg, Sandy Koufax, Mark Spitz, Ron Mix, Charles Myer, Maxie Rosenbloom, Dick Savitt and the sports announcers, Mel Allen, Arnold Auerbach and Howard Cosell. Jews have been merchants and businessman for centuries. Among the notables we have: Home Depot founders Bernard Marcus and Arthur Blank, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (Ben and Jerrys ice cream) Max Factor (makeup to the stars and the likes of us!) Isaac and Jacob Gimbel (Gimbels Department Store) Ruth Handler (of Mattel, and innovator of the Barbie Doll) Calvin Klein and Donna Karan (famous designers) and Estee Lauder whose line of fine American cosmetics was the first to offer free gifts with a purchase. Also Charles Lippert, (founded Weight Watchers because both he and his wife were overweight) Charles Lazarus (founder of Toys R Us) and Israel Matz, whose chocolate-flavored remedy has helped many in need; founder of the Ex-Lax Co. in 1907. Helping us to communicate from its earliest beginnings of TV, radio and the networks our honor role includes: David Sarnoff (founded RCA and NBC) Harvey and Bob Weinstein (Miramax films) Albert, Harry, Jack and Samuel Warner (Warner Brothers Studio), William Paley (CBS) and Emile Berliner (first working microphone and recording studio) And we Jews have been speaking our minds ever since! In the field of science, Jews have made many landmark discoveries that have eradicated diseases, eased human suffering and have given us glimpses into our natural world and its workings. Among those in this category we have: Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin (polio vaccine pioneers), Selman Waksman (microbiologist who discovered streptomycin; coined the word antibiotics), Roselyn Yalow (Noble Peace Prize winner for measuring substances in blood used in the treatment of diabetes), Karl Landsteiner and Philip Levine (discovered blood types and the RH factor in blood), David Nathans (first genetic map of DNA, Noble prize in 1978) and George Goodwin Pincus (collaborator and developer of the birth control pill.) Also physicists Albert Einstein, Albert Abraham Michelson (discovered accurate method of measuring the speed of light), Robert Oppenheimer (coordinated the project that led to the development of the atomic bomb) and Isadore Isaac Rabi (research led to the invention of the laser). And, oy! Where would we be without the timely advice of these people: Dr. Joyce Brothers, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, (sex therapist) Dr Laura Schlesinger, Dennis Prager, and Rabbi Harold Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People) Jewish contributions to all phases of American life have been outstanding. Considering that we are a small minority, the achievements are phenomenal. How this came about, in my opinion, is that as a population, Jews are very educated and orientated as a group toward study and service to others. In a society such as the United States, which has granted unprecedented freedom of religion, Jewish civilization has flourished which has provided fertile ground for the promulgation of Jewish educational opportunities leading to discoveries and research. May America continue her policies of freedom and equal opportunity for all to share in and benefit!Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com In honor of Jewish American Heritage Month JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal All dinners are open to the public in the hall: The Men's Auxiliary serves fried shrimp or chicken baskets on the first and third Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. A fish fry is held on the second and fourth Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. V-Burgers (two for $2 along with chips and special beer prices) are available on the last Tuesday of the month from 4 to 5:30 p.m. On the second Tuesday of the month, the ladies dinner is served from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. On Tuesday, June 12, the menu includes spaghetti with meatballs, tossed salad, garlic bread, and neapolitan ice cream.

But in this mammoth timetravel work hes set his sights on a loftier subject: Can a single person change history? The author rolls out the scenario early and in simple terms. Al Templeton, owner of an unpopular aluminum diner, is dying and the diner has been purchased by L.L. Bean. In his storage pantry Als discovered a rabbit hole to the past and its his dream to kill Lee Harvey Oswald before he can assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Alas, its too late for Al whos in the last stages of lung cancer and coughing blood into maxi-pads. He must talk Jake Epping, burnedout high school teacher and friend in gloomy Lisbon, Maine, to stand in for him. His is a powerful pitch: Save Kennedy, save his brother. Save Martin Luther King. Stop the race riots. Stop Vietnam, maybe. Get rid of one wretched waif, buddy, and you could save millions. Epping can leave 2011 and step back to Sept. 9, 1958. There are only two conditions. When you return, Al explains, theres a reset. Everything you did on your previous trip is erased like an Etch-aSketch. Accepting the terms Jake new identity George Amberson embarks on his mission to forestall that pivotal event of 11/22/63. Along the way the narrative is crammed with nostalgia sock hops. Elvis, beautiful big cars, drive-in movies, Kresges and Ban-Lon no doubt making some readers long for this less complicated time. Central to the story is a touching love affair with an attractive young Texas librarian who brightens Jake/Georges loner existence. King nursed the idea for /22/63 for 30 years but confesses that in 1971 he wasnt up to the research necessary for such a project. And the research hes conducted here is nothing short of stunning. Lee Oswald and wife Marina breathe on the pages that detail the killers relationships with family and cohorts. In depicting a wellknown historical event as entertaining and thought provoking, this book has it all. Heres a book to take you into the night or at 849 pages one to take you through the summer.

Washers Dryers Refrigerators Freezers Dishwashers Ambassadors 10th golf tournament to be July 5 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler when he met his wife, Loretta. This was a second marriage for both of them and they have a combined family of six children and 14 grandchildren. Jerry and Loretta wanted out of the cold winters in Connecticut. Because one of his stepsons, David, lives in Ocala, Jerry and his wife decided on Cherrywood as their new home. For over 30 years Jerry was a member of the Connecticut Hurricanes Drum & Bugle Corp. While he was a member, they won three national championships and played in many venues including Carnegie Hall. When an opening came up for the leadership of the Cherrywood Color Guard, Jerry was a natural fit. Jerry taught bugle at Derby High School for many years where he also led the Junior Drum & Bugle Crop. In addition, he taught their award winning Junior Color Guard. His love of young people still carries over today as he is teaching fourth and fifth grade Color Guard at Hammett Bowen Elementary School in Ocala. Making a difference in the lives of young people is one of the things that Jerry is proudest of. He related the story of a parent who said that before becoming involved in the Color Guard her child had no interest in school. Now that young person is totally committed to not only the color guard, but also to his education. Not content with these commitments alone, Jerry is a member of the Senior Olympics where he takes part in racquetball and runs in the 5K and 10K races. The Senior Olympics takes place every two years instead of the customary four years because of the age of the athletes. As if all these activities were not enough, Jerry works part time for Odessa Car Auctions plus gives wine tasting demonstrations for Kube Distributing. To say that Jerry has a busy schedule would be an understatement but he does more. He loves to shoot pool; run marathons and play cards. Jerry is a tireless worker with the Cherrywood Veterans Club and his one wish is that more members would take a few hours per month out of their schedule to be part of the Color Guard team. When you think about it, the time required is well worth the effort to bring honor to the flag of this Nation and its Armed Forces. You will be able to see Jerry and the Cherrywood Color Guard on Wednesday, May 30 at the Memorial Day Ceremony. When you do, be sure to thank him for his contribution to our community; our county and our country.

As we prepare for our Memorial Day celebration, this week the Spotlight shines on our Color Guard Commander, Jerry Moscariello. Jerry was born in Derby Connecticut and excelled in the public school system, skipping third grade. When he entered Derby High School he played football as one of the youngest members of the squad. He was an end with speed and elusiveness and Lettered on the team in spite of only weighing 119 pounds. After graduating at the age of 16 he worked until he was 18 and enlisted in the Navy. Bambridge, Maryland, was where Jerry took basic training. He then was stationed in Winter Harbor, Maine, followed by assignment to Boston. Following the early death of his father, as an only child, Jerry received a Hardship discharge to return home and take care of his mother. A little more than a year after his dad passed away, his mother also died. Jerry received a degree in Marketing from Bridgeport University and took a position in sales with Prudential Insurance. After 12 years, he took a break and worked with a car dealership for five years. He then returned to Prudential as Sales Manager where he continued until his retirement. Over 25 years ago, Jerry was training at the YMCA On Wednesday, May 30, the traditional Memorial Day, the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its annual Memorial Day service and picnic. At noon, the service will begin with the presentation of colors by our own Honor Guard. Morrey Deen, former Ocala police chief and a major in the U.S. Army (Ret.) will be the keynote speaker at this event. After rendering honors to the five branches of the military; a memorial wreath will be laid at the Veterans Monument in front of the Clubhouse. Taps will be sounded in honor and memory of all those who have died for this country. Immediately following the service, the grills will fire up and Rich Becotte will start the music for an All American picnic. Hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and homemade beans will be on the menu as well as pot luck desserts. Beverages will include lemonade and coffee but guests are welcome to bring their own drinks. Tickets for the picnic are just $7 per person and all are welcome. Just see Geri in the office to purchase your tickets. Speaking of tickets, at 2 p.m. the drawing will be held for the winner of our three-day Bahamas Cruise. You dont need to be present to win or even be a resident of Cherrywood to be a winner. Tickets are $10 each or three for $20. Cruise includes all port fees, taxes; tips and $100 in spending money so dont miss out. You can purchase raffle tickets from Rich Hurley or Bill Mahar at the picnic. All proceeds go to Veterans Club Charities. A Day of RemembranceOn Monday, May 28, the nation will celebrate Memorial Day. Created to give federal employees and others a three day week-end, the VFW stated in their 2002 Memorial Day address, Changing the date merely to create three-day weekends has undermined the very meaning of the day. No doubt this has contributed greatly to the general publics nonchalant observance of Memorial Day. In keeping with these thoughts, the Cherrywood Veterans will present their program on the 30th Even before the guns had grown silent during our Civil War, many people, in their grief, sought to honor the fallen. In the North and South, women decorated with flowers the graves of those who had been killed. Hence the seeds of Decoration Day were sown. General Logan, head of the Grand Army of the Republic, proclaimed in General Order number 11 that the 30th of May be observed as a day to remember those who died in the bloodiest conflict in American history. He chose that date because no major battles had been fought on May 30th during the war; thus Decoration Day was born. Following the First World War, Decoration Day was renamed Memorial Day in order to honor all of Americas war dead. The poppy became the symbol of those who died in that war largely based on the poem, In Flanders Fields. The VFW took up the cause of helping the widows and orphans of veterans as well as the veterans themselves by selling poppies The funds from the sale of these flowers still goes for those purposes to this day. These are the basic cold historical facts surrounding Memorial Day. Setting those facts aside, Memorial Day is far more many Americans. It seems that at every stage of our history, our young men and women have had to answer their nations call and head off to war. World War II followed the First World War; next was Korea and then Vietnam. Several smaller conflicts ensued in Panama; Granada; Kosovo etc. Currently, we are involved in the War on Terror. As you read this, our service people are fighting and dying in Afghanistan, Iraq and many unnamed places, in an effort to keep us safe. On this Memorial Day, I hope that we as a nation remember with awe and reverence those who gave up all of their tomorrows so that we can have today. I hope that we as a nation thank the families of those who are never coming home, for the families and homes that we so often take for granted. I hope we as a nation take the time to give our children; grandchildren an extra hug and share with them that those embraces were made possible by heroes who will never again give or receive a hug from their loved ones. Cherrywood takes time to remember those who died; those they left behind and those who currently serve in harms way. Lest we forget Comedy Night Amazing!

This was a second marriage for both of them and they have a combined family of six children and 14 grandchildren. Jerry and Loretta wanted out of the cold winters in Connecticut. Because one of his stepsons, David, lives in Ocala, Jerry and his wife decided on Cherrywood as their new home. For over 30 years Jerry was a member of the Connecticut Hurricanes Drum & Bugle Corp. While he was a member, they won three national championships and played in many venues including Carnegie Hall. When an opening came up for the leadership of the Cherrywood Color Guard, Jerry was a natural fit. Jerry taught bugle at Derby High School for many years where he also led the Junior Drum & Bugle Crop. In addition, he taught their award winning Junior Color Guard. His love of young people still carries over today as he is teaching fourth and fifth grade Color Guard at Hammett Bowen Elementary School in Ocala. Making a difference in the lives of young people is one of the things that Jerry is proudest of. He related the story of a parent who said that before becoming involved in the Color Guard her child had no interest in school. Now that young person is totally committed to not only the color guard, but also to his education. Not content with these commitments alone, Jerry is a member of the Senior Olympics where he takes part in racquetball and runs in the 5K and 10K races. The Senior Olympics takes place every two years instead of the customary four years because of the age of the athletes. As if all these activities were not enough, Jerry works part time for Odessa Car Auctions plus gives wine tasting demonstrations for Kube Distributing. To say that Jerry has a busy schedule would be an understatement but he does more. He loves to shoot pool; run marathons and play cards. Jerry is a tireless worker with the Cherrywood Veterans Club and his one wish is that more members would take a few hours per month out of their schedule to be part of the Color Guard team. When you think about it, the time required is well worth the effort to bring honor to the flag of this Nation and its Armed Forces. You will be able to see Jerry and the Cherrywood Color Guard on Wednesday, May 30 at the Memorial Day Ceremony. When you do, be sure to thank him for his contribution to our community; our county and our country.

May is Jewish American Heritage Month. What better way to honor this than by showcasing those Jewish individuals who have contributed so much to American society and to the betterment of humankind as a whole. The list is long, the column is short, but I will try to highlight as many as I can in the various fields of achievement. In the world of entertainment we have: Woody Allen, Fyvush Finkel, Lee Grant, George Burns, William Friedkin, Beatrice Arthur, Jack Albertson, Martin Balsam, Sid Caesar, Peter Falk, Richard Dreyfuss, Kirk Douglas. Also Joel Grey, Dustin Hoffman, Goldie Hawn, Judy Holliday and the list goes on and on! Our honor roll of justices include Benjamin Cardozo, Louis Brandeis, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the newest female member, also a Reconstructionist Jew, Elena Kagan. What is life without art? The following artists, photographers, sculptors and photojournalists, have opened our eyes to the world around us: Diane Arbus, Lila Asher, Richard Avedon, Leonard Baskin, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Annie Leibovitz, Jack Levine, Maurice Sendak, (illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are)Art Spiegelman and so many others! The Jewish liturgy is filled with song. It is no wonder that so many Jewish-Americans are involved with the music scene. My offerings in this category include: Isaac Stern, Roberta Peters, Marvin Hamlisch, Morton Gould, Elmer Bernstein, George and Ira Gershwin, Randy Newman, Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond. Barbra Streisand, Aaron Copeland, Jascha Heifetz, Carole King, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel and others who would do anything for a song. The Jewish world is not all work and no play. Outstanding personages in the sporting life include: Hank Greenberg, Sandy Koufax, Mark Spitz, Ron Mix, Charles Myer, Maxie Rosenbloom, Dick Savitt and the sports announcers, Mel Allen, Arnold Auerbach and Howard Cosell. Jews have been merchants and businessman for centuries. Among the notables we have: Home Depot founders Bernard Marcus and Arthur Blank, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (Ben and Jerrys ice cream) Max Factor (makeup to the stars and the likes of us!) Isaac and Jacob Gimbel (Gimbels Department Store) Ruth Handler (of Mattel, and innovator of the Barbie Doll) Calvin Klein and Donna Karan (famous designers) and Estee Lauder whose line of fine American cosmetics was the first to offer free gifts with a purchase. Also Charles Lippert, (founded Weight Watchers because both he and his wife were overweight) Charles Lazarus (founder of Toys R Us) and Israel Matz, whose chocolate-flavored remedy has helped many in need; founder of the Ex-Lax Co. in 1907. Helping us to communicate from its earliest beginnings of TV, radio and the networks our honor role includes: David Sarnoff (founded RCA and NBC) Harvey and Bob Weinstein (Miramax films) Albert, Harry, Jack and Samuel Warner (Warner Brothers Studio), William Paley (CBS) and Emile Berliner (first working microphone and recording studio) And we Jews have been speaking our minds ever since! In the field of science, Jews have made many landmark discoveries that have eradicated diseases, eased human suffering and have given us glimpses into our natural world and its workings. Among those in this category we have: Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin (polio vaccine pioneers), Selman Waksman (microbiologist who discovered streptomycin; coined the word antibiotics), Roselyn Yalow (Noble Peace Prize winner for measuring substances in blood used in the treatment of diabetes), Karl Landsteiner and Philip Levine (discovered blood types and the RH factor in blood), David Nathans (first genetic map of DNA, Noble prize in 1978) and George Goodwin Pincus (collaborator and developer of the birth control pill.) Also physicists Albert Einstein, Albert Abraham Michelson (discovered accurate method of measuring the speed of light), Robert Oppenheimer (coordinated the project that led to the development of the atomic bomb) and Isadore Isaac Rabi (research led to the invention of the laser). And, oy! Where would we be without the timely advice of these people: Dr. Joyce Brothers, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, (sex therapist) Dr Laura Schlesinger, Dennis Prager, and Rabbi Harold Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People) Jewish contributions to all phases of American life have been outstanding. Considering that we are a small minority, the achievements are phenomenal. How this came about, in my opinion, is that as a population, Jews are very educated and orientated as a group toward study and service to others. In a society such as the United States, which has granted unprecedented freedom of religion, Jewish civilization has flourished which has provided fertile ground for the promulgation of Jewish educational opportunities leading to discoveries and research. May America continue her policies of freedom and equal opportunity for all to share in and benefit!Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com In honor of Jewish American Heritage Month JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal All dinners are open to the public in the hall: The Men's Auxiliary serves fried shrimp or chicken baskets on the first and third Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. A fish fry is held on the second and fourth Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. V-Burgers (two for $2 along with chips and special beer prices) are available on the last Tuesday of the month from 4 to 5:30 p.m. On the second Tuesday of the month, the ladies dinner is served from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. On Tuesday, June 12, the menu includes spaghetti with meatballs, tossed salad, garlic bread, and neapolitan ice cream.

But in this mammoth timetravel work hes set his sights on a loftier subject: Can a single person change history? The author rolls out the scenario early and in simple terms. Al Templeton, owner of an unpopular aluminum diner, is dying and the diner has been purchased by L.L. Bean. In his storage pantry Als discovered a rabbit hole to the past and its his dream to kill Lee Harvey Oswald before he can assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Alas, its too late for Al whos in the last stages of lung cancer and coughing blood into maxi-pads. He must talk Jake Epping, burnedout high school teacher and friend in gloomy Lisbon, Maine, to stand in for him. His is a powerful pitch: Save Kennedy, save his brother. Save Martin Luther King. Stop the race riots. Stop Vietnam, maybe. Get rid of one wretched waif, buddy, and you could save millions. Epping can leave 2011 and step back to Sept. 9, 1958. There are only two conditions. When you return, Al explains, theres a reset. Everything you did on your previous trip is erased like an Etch-aSketch. Accepting the terms Jake new identity George Amberson embarks on his mission to forestall that pivotal event of 11/22/63. Along the way the narrative is crammed with nostalgia sock hops. Elvis, beautiful big cars, drive-in movies, Kresges and Ban-Lon no doubt making some readers long for this less complicated time. Central to the story is a touching love affair with an attractive young Texas librarian who brightens Jake/Georges loner existence. King nursed the idea for /22/63 for 30 years but confesses that in 1971 he wasnt up to the research necessary for such a project. And the research hes conducted here is nothing short of stunning. Lee Oswald and wife Marina breathe on the pages that detail the killers relationships with family and cohorts. In depicting a wellknown historical event as entertaining and thought provoking, this book has it all. Heres a book to take you into the night or at 849 pages one to take you through the summer.

Imust make a confession. It has taken me a long time to get to the place where I am willing and comfortable to make such an admission. I think some of my friends will be shocked at what I have to say. I think it is time I come clean and confess. Sort of, clean the air, so to speak. Simply put, I used to believe in leprechauns. I know that comes as a shock to all of my friends. At a distance, I look like a very reasonable, well-adjusted person. And the further away the better I look. The same thing goes with my distant relatives. The more distant they are the more I like them. Nobody would suspect that I had such a problem. You cannot tell what burdens people are carrying just by looking at them. It all came to me by way of reading books. When I was a young person, I read many books that had to do with leprechauns, rainbows and pots full of gold at the end of those rainbows. I was young and nave at the time and believed everything I read. Once while my father was sleeping on the couch I ask him if he believed in leprechauns and he grunted in such a way that I took it to mean that he also believed in them. If you cannot trust your father while he is sleeping, who in the world can you trust? Many a day I spent in the woods at the end of our property looking for leprechauns. I can testify that they are rather elusive creatures but several times, I almost caught one. They always were just a few seconds quicker than I was. I looked where I thought they were but they were nowhere to be found. Do not get me wrong here. I was never frustrated in my fruitless search of leprechauns. There is no better way to spend a day in the woods than searching for the elusive leprechaun. I began to think what I would do if I actually caught one. Then what would I do in the woods? It is always better to seek and not find than to find something and have to quit the seeking. I think it is something like fishermen. Few fishermen really fish for fish. They fish so they can go home and brag about the one that got away. It is hard to brag about the fish you caught and then there is the messy job of cleaning those fish. No, it is better to have fished and not caught anything to have fished and caught something that you have to take home and clean. Such were my thoughts concerning my leprechaun pursuit. Many an evening I entertained my parents with the exciting exploits of searching and almost catching a leprechaun today. I am sure they got tired of hearing, but I never tired of telling. Then the time came when I really had to face the facts. After almost a decade of diligently searching for leprechauns, I had to conclude that they were simply a figment of my imagination. And you know what happens to figs if you keep them around for a long time. I had to realize there were no such creatures as leprechauns. I must confess that it was a rather sad day for me. It was the beginning of many sad days like this. For instance, the day I realized Santa Claus was not real. Every year I diligently prepared my Christmas list starting out with, Dear Ole Santa, and dictated my list of Christmas hopefuls. Often I would sit on his lap and carefully read my list to him. The last time I did this my wife made me get off his lap. Something about being too big or something like that. To my recollection, he never made good on any of those requests. Jolly old soul? Phooey! Then there was the Easter Bunny. This had me for quite a while. After all, I love the chocolate Easter bunnies he brought me along with the rest of the candy. Unlike Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny was very generous in dousing me with candy galore. I truly hated putting the Easter Bunny away. Probably the last one I will mention would be when a politician says, I feel your pain. At first, I thought this was a genuine concern for my state of affairs. When I found out he was just playing me in his political theater I wanted him to feel some more of my pain. Pondering this I begin to realize that many things that I have believed in turned out not to be true. It is quite disconcerting when something you have believed in for a long time turns out to be phony. While I am confessing here, I must confess that only one thing has turned out not to be disappointing. That one thing has been the Bible. It has been the only thing that has not let me down in life. I take great comfort in Psalms 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Many things disappoint me and I have given them up. I start each day with the only thing that will never let me down, that is the Word of God. I believe the Bible. grade and older plus some adults who would like to volunteer and assist the teachers.

Chabad Lubavitch of Marion CountyChabad Lubavitch of Marion County will be hosting a Live Torah Reading of The Ten Commandments followed by a Dairy Buffet in honor of the Holiday of Shavuot. Join us Sunday, May 27, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ocala Hilton. Shavuot which celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai 3323 years ago is commemorated by the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogues on the 1st day of the holiday. Exquisite cheesecakes, pesto pastas, lasagna, and of course cheese blintzes all take center stage during this ancient celebration. Some suggest that this has contributed to the renewed popularity this holiday has seen. When thinking Jewish Holidays, Passover, Chanukah and Yom Kippur come to mind nevertheless Shavuot is considered one of Judaisms major holidays and was in fact a pilgrimage when all of Israel would travel to Jerusalem to celebrate in the Temple. No, it isnt all about the food, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht Director of Chabad Of Marion County and The Villages. What is important is that the community is joining together, hearing the Ten Commandments and celebrating the Torah. But the good food certainly helps! Not everyone can make it to the synagogue in the morning explains Rabbi Yossi Hecht so we have organized an afternoon reading of the Ten Commandments so all can attend. The Torah was given to everyone, men, women and children we are encouraging them to attend. Yizkor Memorial Services and holiday services followed by a Kiddush will be held at The Chabad Jewish Center 3500 SW 34th Ave. Circle Monday (Memorial Day), May 28 at 10 a.m. There is no cost to attend taxexempt donations are always welcome.

come through this tax increase from tourists. Yep tourists. Now, this may not generate as much income, say some of those who support the millage increase, but its totally equitable, so all residents are footing the bill. I picture in my mind, people buying cigarettes, alcohol and other unnecessary items who dont own property and are not paying a millage increase. I could go deeper but I dont think it would be printed. Now lets address President Obamas health care program. First, insurance companies and some businesses are vehemently against it as are a great number of Republicans. Now, if politicians have a hand, and are involved in it, its probably a good health care program. Get politicians involved in anything and it becomes a, will it get me re-elected or not approach. Having worked for the Congress and lobbied two legislatures, politicians are at the top of, whats in it for me, rung of the ladder. Most politicians are lawyers, so that should be self explaining. I was with Medicare from its inception back in July 1965, as a financial and medical auditor. I can tell you that people in the couple years leading up to Medicare being implemented, were just as opposed to Medicare as they are Obamacare. But, and it should be said proudly, that Obamacare is also a good thing. Its been implied that senior citizens would be adversely affected by Obamacare. Hogwash. More political mumbo jumbo. Then theres those people who either work for a company that doesnt provide health care, or those who cant afford health insurance as we know it, who will then have health care available to them. Think of the people who would be taken off the welfare and Medicaid rolls. Example. I know a person who was working for a company that didnt provide health care and his wife was in the same boat in her job. No family health care for the four family members. So, the father had to quit a job he liked, and took another job, only because it provided health care for his family. People, this is not an exception, this happens all the time. Its a fact that health care is expensive and we can blame insurance companies for that, not President Obama. After all, health care has been around for years and President Obama has only been in office a little over three years. You do the math. So, which do you prefer, life with health care or the alternative? The Republicans, through an ad on TV and the print medial, is accusing a person supporting Obamacare by calling it, the death program. How ridiculous is that? I guess it takes all kinds. Were on the verge of being the worst state in the country on education, lets not go the same route on health care.

Currently were in another drought. There will be others in the future. Accompanying the drought is a sinkhole alert. According to reports, Marion County has had the secondmost sinkholes in the state since the 1960s. Simply put, sinkholes are where water used to be. When rains return, water soaked earth will collapse into more sinkholes. Increased pumping will add to the likelihood of additional collapses. Granting water removal permits can become infectious, because others will claim what was OK for a goose should be OK for a gander. Additional applications from commercial bottlers are likely. As to the Adena Springs project, other commercial interests will note that Marion County has significant water resources available. Thats how the game is played. Marion County citizens should pressure elected officials to get on the citizens side in every battle of the water wars. They wont be able to lead folks to water after the aquifer runs dry. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don't walk in Oak RunThe Oak Run retirement community woke up to new signs placed along its main boulevard. As we honor the brave men and women who fought to protect our freedom and rights, here in Oak Run we've had one of those freedoms taken away. Oak Run has no residential sidewalks, no cart paths except for the golf course, no bike or walking paths. It was designed with roads with no shoulders. Why not Watch for Pedestrians, Share the Road? Why not add a dirt shoulder as they tear up the boulevard. Is to protect drivers from walkers, walkers from drivers? I wonder what those brave soldiers fighting right now would think of a community that would deny its residents a walk down its boulevard to the community recreation center, or to Walmart, or to the bank, or a walk to maintain good health? I wonder how many retirement communities here in Ocala, or even in Florida, have banned residents from walking on their boulevards? Cherish the freedoms you have, for they can easily be taken away in the guise of protection. Maybe we should think about whom we really should be protected from!

Dear EarthTalk: What is the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign? Brian Howley, Washington, DC A project of the nonprofit Green America, the Fair Trade Your Supermarket campaign aims to empower consumers to advocate for more Fair Trade products on store shelves at their local supermarkets. Fair trade is a system of exchange that honors producers, communities and the environment by ensuring that farmers and artisans throughout the developing world are paid fair prices for their work and have direct involvement in the marketplace. The goal of the wider Fair Trade movement, according to Green America, is to build real and lasting relationships between producers in developing countries and businesses and consumers around the world. And thats where your neighborhood grocer comes in. While the Fair Trade movement is gaining steam nationwide, most of our supermarkets still carry fewif anyFair Trade products on their shelves, reports Green America. Together, we can put Fair Trade products within reach for millions of Americans. And just how does Green America expect us to do this? First, take stock of Fair Trade products in your supermarketlook for coffee, tea, chocolate, rice, sugar, honey, wine, fresh fruit, and olive oil. Scan the relevant aisles for thirdparty certifier Fair Trade USAs distinctive blackand-white Fair Trade Certified label, which is only attached to imported goods where the producers receive fair prices for their products and where strict socio-economic and environmental criteria are met during production. Alternatively, look for the logos of other thirdparty certifiers such as Fair for Life or Fair Trade Federation on product labels if you think fair trade versions may be available in a given product line. Then, you can encourage the store to stock more Fair Trade products by talking to the store manager as a loyal customer, adds Green America. They suggest using comment cards, which can be key to getting a store with no Fair Trade items to start carrying them. Every time you go grocery shopping, drop a comment card in the box asking your manager to stock Fair Trade items. Of course, talking to a store manager in person may be even more effective, especially if you are armed with a pile of your receipts from the store from the previous month or two to show how much spending power you alone would be able to allocate toward Fair Trade versions of the items you are buying there. Another creative way to spread the Fair Trade gospel would be by volunteering to hand out free samples of Fair Trade products that the store already sells in order to raise awareness and build consumer demand. Stores sell more of a product when a sampling table is set out, and if you, your friends and family are working the table, the labor is free for the store too. But why stop with your local market? If there is a chain supermarket outlet in your area, take it to the top by writing an e-mail, letter or postcard to corporate headquarters informing them of your desire to buy Fair Trade items in all of their stores. Check out the Fair Trade Your Supermarket website (link below) for more tips on how to make your next shopping trip fairer to the planet and its people.Contacts: Fair Trade Your Supermarket, www.fairtradeyoursupermarket.org; Green America, www.greenamerica.org; Fair Trade USA, www.fairtradeusa.com.Dear EarthTalk: The oil industry is planning what some call a dangerous strategy of drilling for oil on the Outer Continental Shelf in the Arctic Ocean. Whats going on? Vera Bailey, New Hope, PA In November 2011 the Obama administration began lifting the moratorium on off-shore drilling that had been imposed in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced a five year plan including 15 leases for oil development on Alaskas Outer Continental Shelf and in the Gulf of Mexico. For now the East and West coasts of the continental U.S. have been spared from drilling, but environmentalists are particularly worried about opening up the fragile Alaskan Arctic to off-shore rigs. This five-year program will make available for development more than three-quarters of undiscovered oil and gas resources estimated on the (Outer Continental Shelf), including frontier areas such as the Arctic, where we must proceed cautiously, safely and based on the best science available, Salazar told reporters. Republicans were incensed that more acreage was not being made available for off-shore drilling, but environmentalists couldnt believe what they were hearing for different reasons: In June 2011 the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) had released a 292-page report commissioned by Interior Secretary Salazar to identify the gaps in scientific or technical knowledge about how drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas north of Alaska would affect the region, reports Jerry Bellinson in Popular Mechanics. The report, Bellinson says, details several areas where those gaps exist, including oil-spill cleanup technologies, basic mapping of currents and the effects of underwater noise on sea mammals. Despite the USGSs warnings, the Obama administration decided to proceed anyway. Drilling infrastructure permanently alters ocean floor habitats, reports Defenders of Wildlife. Drill rig footprints, undersea pipelines, dredging ship channels, and dumped drill cuttings the rock material dug out of the oil or gas wellare often contaminated with drilling fluid used to lubricate and regulate the pressure in drilling operations. The group adds that contaminated sediments are carried long distances by currents and can kill important small bottom-dwelling creatures at the bottom of the marine food chain. Defenders also argues that spills, leaks and occasional BP-like catastrophes are unavoidable with off-shore oil drilling, if history is any guide. Even with safety protocols in place, leaks and spills are inevitable each year U.S. drilling operations send an average of 880,000 gallons of oil into the ocean. As for wildlife, off-shore drilling can have devastating effects even with no spills or leaks. Seismic surveys conducted during oil and gas exploration cause temporary or permanent hearing loss, induce behavioral changes, and even physically injure marine mammals such as whales, seals and dolphins, reports Defenders. Construction noise from new facilities and pipelines is also likely to interfere with foraging and communication behaviors of birds and mammals. Because they are at the top of the food chain, many marine mammals will be exposed to the dangers of bioaccumulation of organic pollutants and metals. And off-shore drilling only adds insult to injury as far as Defenders is concerned: In the face of the climate crisis, the U.S. needs to look for ways to decrease petroleum consumption, notincrease it.Contacts: Defenders of Wildlife, www.defenders.org; Popular Mechanics, www.popularmechanics.com/science /energy/coal-oil-gas/oildrilling-in-the-arcticocean-is-it-safe.EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

Perhaps the most difficult brain bender in property law is water rights. There are public waters, private waters, percolating waters, navigable waters, inland waters, flood waters, developed waters, surface waters, subterranean waters, surplus water, tide water, and waste water. Their common characteristic is wetness. Water is considered a property problem even though we cant walk on it or hold it in our hands. It is constantly subject to the laws of nature, such as gravity. For legal considerations water can be property temporarily, but if it escapes for even a moment, any claim of ownership is gone forever. The limit of food deprivation for humans varies by body mass (Women last longer for reasons which need not be discussed here). The limit of water deprivation also varies. On rare occasions some humans have survived up to nine days. Water is the most abundant molecule of the human body. There is human life on earth only because of the presence of water. Which raises the ongoing discussions about distribution of the water resources in Marion County. Water availability for the needs of humans should be considered paramount to all other claims and considerations. Whether were able to swim, fish, and be entertained by our water resources are secondary considerations. Recreational concerns about Silver Springs and local rivers offer some reasonable arguments for restriction of water removal permits, but theyre not paramount to the present and future survival needs of Marion County humans. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 25, 2012 There were a couple of events last weekend that I attended that really brought into the limelight the change in recent technology. The first was the wedding of a family member Friday night, in which he invited everyone to take pictures with their cell phones and e-mail him the results, which he would compile and make available to everyone. Although he did have a friend who is a good photographer taking standard photos, and a couple of us used our digital cameras to take pictures, others did take him up on his offer. The second was a First Communion of a grandson on Sunday morning in St. Augustine Beach area. The church didnt want people using a flash during Mass, and although that didnt stop a few people, cell phones being used was a common sight. Quickly, there were many pictures of both events posted on Facebook. When we were growing up, this type of thing wasnt even a part of the imagination. Those same advances in technology have changed the way Americans look at war. During the wars early in our lives, except for a few grainy newsreels, the written word was the main description of the fighting. The Vietnam era changed that, with cameras and correspondents bringing the battles, and the deaths, right into our living rooms. That changed the way many people looked at war, but it also changed the way many people celebrated Memorial Day. Suddenly the day took on a more personal meaning, after we sat there and watched people die on our TV screens. Monday is Memorial Day, a day of honoring all those who died while fighting for their country. Its a national event, flags will fly, some places will have parades, many other places will have ceremonies. But for many people its a personal event. There are many among us who have lost friends or relatives in war (I lost an uncle one month after D-Day), and this is a particularly emotional day for those survivors who remember the heroes gone before us. So this coming Monday, amid the celebration, activities, beach visits and other fun times, take time to recall why this day is being celebrated. Without the sacrifices of these people who went before us into war, some of these celebrations might not be possible. On Memorial Day, thats worth remembering.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

Memorial Day across the country is usually one of the least safe traffic weekends of the entire year. People from places where the ground is white all winter are suddenly unleashed on the roads, surrounded by greenery or, if they live near the coast, sand. After carefully negotiating slippery roads for months, they are turned loose to speed along dry highways to their party destinations. Hopefully, of course, people will remember what the day means, and take time to participate in events to recall those who gave their lives for our freedom. Here in Florida, we didnt have the wintry weather for the past few months, but there is still a sense of newfound freedom as we take to the roads for the first holiday of the season. Too many people throw caution to the wind, and that means the chances of accidents go up. Gas prices, which were pushing the $4 mark just a little while ago, have dropped by a significant amount, sometimes more than 10 percent, in the past few weeks, leading people to believe that traveling is a bargain. (Remember, when you buy that little bottle of water, you might be paying as much as $10 a gallon for water, but complaining about $4 a gallon for gas). The point is, we need for you to be safe this weekend. Law enforcement has just started a click it or ticket campaign to get people to wear seat belts, which is a law but, more importantly, involves common sense. We can be reasonably sure that aggressive drivers and speeders will also be targeted. So when you take to the road, use all the safety tools available, obey speed and traffic laws, and get where youre going safely. Dont ruin the weekend for your family by making them prepare for your funeral.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Be careful this holiday weekend Technology brought war into home Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Water, water everywhere, but only temporarily Same-sex marriageRecently President Obama publicly announced his support for same-sex marriage but not wanting to paint himself in a corner, his announcement was to support the decision, that is, if the individual states legislated the matter. Surely he is aware that the majority of states have already spoken on this subject and have rejected the concept. To serve his immediate political purposes, Amendment X (States Rights) was employed. This administration rarely before acknowledged States Rights. Persons of goodwill have or have had friends of homosexual persuasion who are highly regarded unmindful of their sexual orientation. Disagreement with the life style cannot deny earned esteem as Christians or as friends, we can do no less. Covenants between God and humans, as written in both the Old and New Testaments, contain condemnation of the practice of homosexuality not homosexual inclination, but the practice of homosexuality. Opponents of same-sex marriage are often classified as bigots. Such classification would thus include Protestant clergy and laity of different denominations, Catholic clergy and laity, writers of the Holy Scriptures, and throw into this mix of bigots Pope Benedict XVI, Rev. Dr. Billy Graham, and others of equal acclamation. Presents a dubious measure of bigotry, does it not? The majority of states reject the concept of same-sex marriage. Should all of these citizens who voted to reject be considered bigots? Due to abortion and contraceptive use, the USA birth rate is below replacement value. From a practical point of view, this is critical in the administration of any government that depends on a reliable work force to continue funding government programs. Needed are traditional marriages to increase birth rates, preferably children born within a committed relationship known as husband and wife. Same-sex marriages cannot achieve this goal.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The Indianapolis 500 Mile Race will be run this Sunday. Held annually for more than 100 years, the race consists of 200 laps run counterclockwise around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2.5 mile oval. The field consists of 33 starters with most of them going about 120 miles per hour and not texting, a rarity among todays drivers. President Obama has declined an offer to drive the celebrity pace car in the race. It appears he cant stand the appearance anymore of turning to the left. Our own driving will be along Pun Alley to see if we can find a racy story or two.Something SmellsAfter last years Indianapolis 500 race, residents living near the track complained about the noise and pollution caused by the cars. But what disturbed them most was the putrid-smelling exhaust that continually emanated from the cars themselves. During the race they were rarely able to emerge from their homes without being assaulted by noxious fumes filling the air. Finally these residents had had enough, and they filed a suit against the Raceway for Indy scent exposure.200 SyndromeA policeman saw a car puttering along at 17 mph creating a traffic backup. He stopped it and noticed five old ladies, two in the front and three in the back, eyes wide and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, said, Officer, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem? Maam, the officer replied, You should know that driving slower than the speed limit can be dangerous to other drivers. Slower than the speed limit? she said, I was doing the speed limit, 17 miles an hour! The officer explained that 17 was the highway number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman thanked him for pointing out her error. The officer asked, Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem awfully shaken and they havent muttered a single peep this whole time. Oh, theyll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Highway 200.Test DriveA man won the lottery and decided to buy a new sports car, even though he had hardly ever driven before. He convinced a salesman to let him try a Porsche. They went out on I-75 and the man quickly accelerated shifting past fourth gear, to fifth, then to sixth. While going at a very high speed the car suddenly shook, the engine exploded, the car swerved, and stopped. What did you do? yelled the salesman. Well, I was going so fast I ran out of numbered gears so I put it into R for Race.SprintsRiding on the highway is like Russian roulette; you never know which driver is loaded. When it comes to parking she does a bang-up job. The doctor told me that hed have me on my feet in no time. It worked. To pay his bill I had to sell my car. The person who has a second-hand car knows how hard it is to drive a bargain. A wife told her husband, Be an angel and let me drive. He did and he is. Famous racecar driver Richard Petty once got caught stealing; cops called it petty theft. Even when a racecar goes backwards, it is still spelled racecar. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie. I got stopped once for going fifty-three in a thirtyfive-mile-per-hour zone. I got off. I told them I had dyslexia. If you dont like the way women drive, get off the sidewalk.Avoidance at All CostsDriving down 200 a man had to swerve to avoid a box that fell from a truck. Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over and recovered the box. When he opened the box it contained large upholstery tacks. Im sorry sir, the policeman told the driver, but Im going to have to write you a ticket. Amazed, the driver asked, For what? The policeman replied, Tacks evasion.BlowupA man pulled into a gas station to put some air in his car tires because he had noticed they were a bit flat. How much is that? he asked the cashier? Ten dollars. Ten dollars! Thats expensive! Its only air! The cashier replied, Well, thats inflation for you.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Indy cars pay a visit to the roads of Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank When 4-year-old Kyli Taylor was diagnosed with leukemia May 1, it brought about big changes for her and her family. She was getting ready to start preschool, now shes getting ready for chemotherapy, said her mother, Linda Taylor. The Taylors live in Ocala, but Linda, husband Robert and Kyli have been spending most of their days at Shands at the University of Florida, where Kyli is receiving treatment. This Saturday, at LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, 1607 E. Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala, there will be a blood drive in Kylis honor, and there will be a bake sale and car wash to help cover the extra expenses the family is now facing. Linda explained that shes now on leave from her job at The Answer 2 answering service, so she can be with her daughter. Kylis illness also prompted the family to move, adding to the financial strain. Linda said when she worked, her company held blood drives. Now shes seen that blood in action, as Kyli has received transfusions of platelets and red blood cells. I knew it was a lifesaver, but I didnt know the specifics, she said. It was obviously a big eye-opener when she was diagnosed and we saw what it really does. The donor center opens at 9 a.m. Saturday, and the blood drive, car wash and bake sale will run until 2 p.m. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. For more information call 352-622-3544. Blood drive in honor of 4-year-old Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Aman who was allegedly caught stealing parts from an airconditioner was arrested outside Florida Citizens Bank on State Road 200. According to the report, Deputy John Rawls answered a call of a suspicious person behind the bank and carrying a hammer in his pocket. He was said to have walked to the vacant bank building across the street from Florida Citizens Bank at 8300 S.W. 200. When he arrived, Rawls saw a white cloud of vapor or smoke coming from the air conditioner enclosure of the vacant bank building. He approached on foot and saw the access doors were open. He could hear the sounds of metal on metal, sounds of impact and sounds consistent with metal being cut by a wire cutter or similar tool. Rawls looked inside and spotted Jody Duane Brechtel, 38, of Southwest 59th Street kneeling next to the compressor unit. After watching for several seconds, Rawls verbally identified himself and ordered the man to show his hands, which he did. The deputy asked him what he was doing and the suspect reportedly said, Times are tough. Brechtel was accused of burglary, attempted grand theft and possession of burglary tools. According to jail records, he was released on $6,000 bond. Charles Irving McKenney III, of Southwest 186th Court in Dunnellon, was accused of robbery by sudden snatching. A woman leaving Walgreens at 60th Avenue and State Road 200, had her purse grabbed by a man who then ran across to the area of CVS and left in a green van. Inside the purse was the womans medication which she had just purchased. Shortly after that, a deputy stopped a green van at West State Road 40 and 110th Avenue. McKenney was interviewed and subsequently arrested. As of Wednesday morning he was still in the Marion County Jail under a bond of $10,000. Purse snatched outside drug store, suspect arrested COP SHOP Donation of transport van soughtSheltering Hands Animal Rescue is seeking a donation of a cargo van to transport cats in their Community Cats Program to spay and neuter.

Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, May 25, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Fallen Officers Memorial at the McPherson Complex in Ocala. A sizeable crowd attended the event, which featured the reading of all the names on the memorial as well as military-type honors. Speaker Judge Willard Pope described to the officers in attendance and the crowd the types of situations that they encountered and noted that sometimes officers had a half-second to make up their minds about the use of force. Some of you have called 10-24, shots fired, yet you choose to do this. You do it because thats who you are and thats what youre made of. Pope continued, If you dont fight against wrong, you become part of it. He told those gathered, Heroes dont wear capes, they wear badges. You meet the definition of a hero, because thats who you are and thats what you do. He said that the fallen officers would tell you they would do it all over again ...would want you to be careful ... and that there are no regrets. The ceremony featured the reading of the names by Chief Joanne Black of the Dunnellon Police Department. A memorial wreath was placed by Arlene Rutherford, in memory of Deputy William Rutherford of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who was killed Jan. 2, 1990, when his car was struck by a drunk driver, who also died in the crash. The Marion County Sheriffs Office Honor Guard, which recently won a national championship, performed in the parking lot. There was a flyover by air units, a 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps and a riderless horse. FALLENCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The names of Marion Countys fallen officers are inscribed on the monument.

Whatever you do, dont give up. TA URUS ( April 20 to May 20) A tip about a coworkers betrayal might well raise the Bovines rage levels. But before charging into a confrontation, let an unbiased colleague do some fact checking. GEMINI ( May 21 to J une 20) Although a relationship still seems to be moving too slowly to suit your expectations, its best not to push it. Let it develop at its own pace. Youll soon get news about a workplace change. CANCER (June 21 to J uly 22) A continually changing personal situation makes you feel as if youre riding an emotional roller coaster. But hold on tight; stability starts to set in early next week. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Believe it or not, someone might dare to say No! to the Regal Ones suggestion. But instead of being miffed, use this rebuff to recheck the proposition and, perhaps, make some changes. V IRGO ( Aug 23 to Sept. 22) You might find it difficult to make a decision about a family matter. But delay can only lead to more problems. Seek out trusted counsel and then make that important decision. LIBR A ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Concentrate your focus on what needs to be done, and avoid frittering away your energies on less-important pursuits. Therell be time later for fun and games. SCORPI O ( Oct. 23 to Nov 21) Although the conflicts seem to be letting up, you still need to be wary of being drawn into workplace intrigues. Plan a special weekend event for family and/or friends. SAGITT A RIUS ( Nov 22 to Dec. 21) Your quick wit helps you work through an already difficult situation without creating more problems. Creative aspects begin to dominate by the weeks end. CAP RICOR N ( Dec. 22 to J an. 19) Be patient. Youll soon receive news about a project that means so much to you. Meanwhile, you might want to reconsider a suggestion you previously turned down. A QU A RIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb 18) There are still some aspects about that new job offer you need to resolve. In the meantime, another possibility seems promising. Be sure to check that out as well. PI SCE S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Opening up your emotional floodgates could leave you vulnerable to being hurt later on. Watch what you say, in order to avoid having your words come back to haunt you. BOR N THI S WEEK: Youre usually the life of the party, which gets you on everyones invitation list. You also have a flair for politics. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

When she was 14, her dad took off time from his plumbing and heating shop and they traveled all around the western part of the country. Among the places she visited was the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park. Later, her folks wintered in Florida, and I always liked it here. She decided to retire when she was vice president of a sheet metal corporation in Georgia, and 27 years ago moved into the home in Pine Run which is still hers today. Heloese plans on taking the Honor Flight in October. I think it's a good thing. I really want to see the World War II memorial. Part of the time she was in radio training, she was in the D.C. area, so she says she has seen most of the sights in the nation's capital. I don't think too many young people know much about the war and its history. She didn't lose anyone in the war, but had a brother, Leotus Sutter, and a brother-in-law, Lewis Dukes. Dukes was in France and lost an eye. He was a farmer, he drove, and played softball, so it didn't stop him. She has relatives in Florida, including two daughters, a niece, and three grandchildren. She also praised a neighbor who helps her as much as possible. Heloese walks comfortably around her home, but uses a walker on her slanted driveway. She had only one moment when she said she wished things were different. The hardest thing I ever had to do was give up my car, she said.Friday, May 25, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

After her upbringing in Pandora, Ohio, she joined the Waves, and went to radio school. Eventually she found her way to Cape Cod, where she searched for and copied German communications. We had stations up and down the East Coast, she said. She and her fellow operators would notify the Navy when a German sub was surfacing, so the submarines could be bombed. Eventually they got wise to what we were doing, Bennett said, and they would drop oil. The oil on the surface would make the U.S. think the subs had been hit. They were crafty about things. After the Germans surrendered, Bennett transferred to Washington state and did the same thing against the Japanese. She stayed out there until the Japanese surrendered. She and her friends would stand out near the coast and wave at the American ships returning to port. After the war, she went to Kansas City and attended air traffic control school, but instead got married. She eventually moved to Columbus, Georgia, where she met her second husband.

Two men originally arrested for stealing more than $6,000 worth of tires were arrested again Monday night. Ameh Ruiz, 26, and Andrew Weinreich, 21, were accused of taking the tires and other merchandise from the Walmart on State Road 200. Around 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, deputies received a phone call from a Walmart employee advising that two mens had taken several sets of new tires from the store without paying, and loaded them into a Budget rental truck. The truck was seen heading east on State Road 200. Deputies located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Weinreich was driving the truck. Inside, deputies located 27 new tires. Weinreichs wife, Chantelle, told deputies more stolen property could be located at the Ruiz motel room and Weinreichs residence. At the Silver Springs Motel, room 4, deputies located 23 tires, a car battery, truck cover/canopy, a tent and a coffee maker. At Weinreichs house, deputies located another 14 tires. Then on Monday of this week, Andrew Weinreich was arrested on additional charges of grand theft and Ruiz was jailed again on another retail grand theft charge, in addition to the two counts from the original case.
