BRIEFS How do we do that? Civic Theatre to show youDo you ever attend a show at the Ocala Civic Theatre and wonder, How do they do that? We get a lot of questions (and much-appreciated compliments) about how we work our magic to create the fabulous sets, costumes, and props you see at each production. So were inviting you to an Open House and Backstage Tour on Saturday, June 2, from 9 a.m. to noon to show you all (well, most of) our secrets! Back by popular demand, our guided tour will take you behind the scenes to explore the wonderful world of backstage. Join our staff and volunteers as they share a glimpse of how we bring bygone eras to life, create authentic settings, and spin fantasy into reality. In the scene shop, youll see examples of set construction techniques, such as how we turn Styrofoam into what looks like wood paneling, trees, stone, bricks, and more. Our master craftsmen will demonstrate their clever illusions behind our artfully detailed props, and youll learn about sound and lighting tricks as well. In the costume shop, youll be amazed at the thousands of beautiful costumes we have in storage. And, if you saw the show, or will be seeing it soon and would like a preview, this is your chance to get an up-close-and-personal look at the set, props, and costumes created for Fiddler On the Roof. Theres no charge to take the tour, and everyone is welcome to attend. You may just want to look around and satisfy your curiosity, or you might be interested in becoming a volunteer. Either way, we are always happy to have you join us. The Ocala Civic Theatre is at 4337 East Silver Springs Boulevard (East State Road 40) in the Appleton Cultural Center.

Bingo will resume Wednesday, Sept. 5. Doors open at 5 p.m. with bingo play starting at 7 p.m. A trailer stolen from the Airport Industrial Park was located at a home on Northeast 14th Avenue in Ocala, and that resulted in the re-arrest of Andrew James Weinreich, 21, on charges of grand theft auto. He had been arrested previously for the theft of items from various Walmart stores in the area, including sets of tires. Several of these items were discovered in the trailer when it was opened. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, photos taken from the theft of the trailer were identified as Weinreich, and deputies went to his home. It was a duplex with a shared backyard, and deputies were able to see what was in the yard. After obtaining a search warrant, they went to the home, where Weinreich was not located. They discovered he had been dropped off at a truck stop at County Road 326 and Interstate 75, and notified patrol officers in that area, who had no trouble locating the suspect and bringing him to the home. Weinreichs father was there and had been served with the search warrant. Weinreich opened the trailer for deputies, and it contained tires and various other materials believed to be stolen. Other trailers were on the property and couldnt be identified, but they were also towed as Ocala Police and Marion County deputies try to locate the owners. Weinreich was booked into the jail for the third time in May, and was held without bond because of the previous arrests. His next court date is arraignment on June 26.

Discovery of trailer taken from area also yields tires Remembering those who gave all PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKThe U.S. Marine Color Guard marches toward a display of crosses and flags at Veterans Memorial Park on Memorial Day. Diana Bennett, a recent graduate of the Air Force Academy, and a graduate of Forest High School, spoke to the crowd. David Reeves was the master of ceremonies. The traditional POW-MIA table was on display. This row of flags leads into Highland Memorial Park, where a ceremony was held although the weather was less than perfect. Conditions in the atmosphere and the ocean favor a near-normal hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin this season, NOAA announced May 24 from Miami at its Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, and home to the Hurricane Research Division. This week is national Hurricane Preparedness Week. For the entire six-month season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center says theres a 70 percent chance of nine to 15 named storms (with top winds of 39 mph or higher), of which four to eight will strengthen to a hurricane (with top winds of 74 mph or higher) and of those one to three will become major hurricanes (with top winds of 111 mph or higher, ranking Category 3, 4 or 5). Based on the period 1981-2010, an average season produces 12 named storms with six hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenThe Fellowship Hall at Joy Lutheran Church was very full and lively at the Bunco Party on Saturday, May 19. More than 50 people (men and women) attended this event for the purpose of raising money to purchase shoes for Marion County School children who are homeless. The funds raised through a free-will offering will be supplemented 50 cents on the dollar up to a maximum of $500 from the Marion County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. These monies will combine with the money raised at the April 28 Ice Cream Social and will generate approximately $1500 for the purchase of the shoes. It was obvious from the chatter and laughter among these 50 plus people that they were there not only for charity but also to have a good time. If you have never been to a Bunco party (which was my first time) it is a hubbub of noise, social interaction and lots of movement. There were 13 tables with four players at each table. One table was the Head table that rings the bell to signal the start and end of a round. Each time a round is finished the players move to another table. Round one starts when each player rolls the 3 dice to get as many ones as possible. The round ends when the Head table scores 21 points or gets a Bunco which is three of a kind of the number one. The players move to another table with a new partner and the game continues to the next number two, then on up to six. One person at each table keeps the score for the teams and each player has their own score card on which their wins of either a game or a Bunco are tallied. This is just a few of the rules of the game, there are many more to be learned but maybe at the next Bunco encounter. Prizes are awarded either in the form of cash that the participants contribute or, in this case, in the form of white elephant items that the participants donated. A special gift is given to the player with the top score and one for the player with the lowest score. Everyone will most likely get a gift since there were many donated gifts and the individual name tags had numbers on them which will direct who gets to choose the next gift from the white elephant items. According to the World Bunco Association website, Bunco dates back to the late 1800s when it was introduced into San Francisco during the Gold Rush period. Prior to WWI, Bunco achieved permanent placement as a traditional family or parlor game promoting social interaction. The game has seen resurgence in popularity in the United States, with a reported 27 million people playing regularly in 2006. Bunco is a social dice game involving 100 percent luck, requiring little decision making skill with simple scoring and set of rules. So if you can roll 3 dice and count to six you can play Bunco.

The a cappella doo-wop quartet Blend will perform their concert Forever Doo Wop A Tribute to the s and s on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ocala Civic Theatre. Formed in 2005, Blend is a touring group from Illinois. Evan Boswell, John Estes, Eric Rudd, and Andrew Smith are the four members who bring the songs to life. Though the music is from several generations before their time, they love doo wop, and they clearly love what they do. Blend has opened for a variety of doo wop, country, and gospel acts, including The Platters, Bill Haleys Comets, The Van-Dells, The Drifters, Aaron Tippin, Confederate Railroad, Ivan Parker, and Greater Vision. In 2008 they appeared as special guests at The Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater in Branson, Missouri. Performing music made popular by The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, The Del-Vikings, Elvis Presley, The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Orbison, Otis Redding, The Shirelles, The Coasters, and Ritchie Valens, among many others, Blend has a diverse repertoire. Their concert program features classic songs like Stand By Me, Sittin On the Dock of the Bay, Blue Moon, My Girl, Only the Lonely, At the Hop, Come Go With Me, Dont Be Cruel, Duke of Earl, Get a Job, Goodnight, Sweetheart, In the Still of the Night, Little Bitty Pretty One, Barbara Ann, Book of Love, Runaround Sue, Surfer Girl, Teenager In Love, and This Magic Moment and many more! Paying homage to their Southern gospel heritage, Blend also performs a few hymns and songs such as Beulah Land, Unclouded Day, Amazing Grace, and Ill Fly Away in each concert. Blend is known for having fun at their concerts and making sure the audience does, too. They frequently leave the stage and mingle with the audience, making them feel like theyre part of the show. Before long, the audience is singing along. If you lived through it, Blend will take you back to a time of bobbysoxers, poodle skirts, and blue suede shoes. If not, Blend will make you fall in love with the era and its music either for the first time or all over again!

2012, the continuation of the overall conditions associated with the Atlantic high-activity era that began in 1995, in addition to nearaverage sea surface temperatures across much of the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, known as the Main Development Region. Two factors now in place that can limit storm development, if they persist, are: strong wind shear, which is hostile to hurricane formation in the Main Development Region, and cooler sea surface temperatures in the far eastern Atlantic. Another potentially competing climate factor would be El Nio if it develops by late summer to early fall. In that case, conditions could be less conducive for hurricane formation and intensification during the peak months (August-October) of the season, possibly shifting the activity toward the lower end of the predicted range, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. In a more immediate example of research supporting hurricane forecasting, NOAA this season is introducing enhancements to two of the computer models available to hurricane forecasters the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) models. The HWRF model has been upgraded with a higher resolution and improved atmospheric physics. This latest version has demonstrated a 20 to 25 percent improvement in track forecasts and a 15 percent improvement in intensity forecasts relative to the previous version while also showing improvement in the representation of storm structure and size. Improvements to the GFDL model for 2012 include physics upgrades that are expected to reduce or eliminate a high bias in the model's intensity forecasts. The seasonal outlook does not predict how many storms will hit land. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts are provided by NOAAs National Hurricane Center, which continuously monitors the tropics for storm development and tracking throughout the season using an array of tools including satellites, advance computer modeling, hurricane hunter aircraft, and landand ocean-based observations sources such as radars and buoys.

A NY IT EM PRICEDUNDER $1 00M A XIMUM 10 W ORDS RUNS F OR 2 WEEKSFREE TOLL FREE1-8 7 7-6 7 6-1 4 0 3 DESTINY OF THE REPUBLIC By Candace MillardThis well-told account of the election and subsequent assassination of our 20th president James Garfield is more of an experience than just a good read. It paints a portrait of a divided America in 1880 when at the Republican convention Garfield, over his strenuous protests, is nominated on the 33rd ballot. Author Millard admits that it wasnt Garfield himself that impelled her to write the book but rather what she learned in her research about Alexander Graham Bells relationship to Garfield. After the assassination attempt Bell abandoned everything he was working on to make his top priority developing an induction balance a form of metal detector to locate the bullet in the presidents body. To the author this spoke volumes about Bells respect and admiration for Garfield. Just four months into his presidency, Garfield, on July 2, 1881, was awaiting a train to the seaside resort in New Jersey to join his ailing wife Lucretia. At the D.C. station a frustrated office seeker with a long history of mental problems fired one shot at the president. Left alone Garfield would almost certainly have survived. But once Dr. Willard Bliss applied his archaic treatments, the president was a doomed man. Although acquainted with Listers theory that antiseptics saved lives, Bliss found washing hands and sterilizing instruments a waste of time. Consequently, he repeatedly inserted his dirty finger and germ-laden probes into Garfields wound, causing infections that burrowed tunnels of pus throughout his body. Compounding this medical malpractice were the deplorable conditions of the White House then a vermin-ridden structure with broken sewage pipes. From July until his death in September Garfield endured torture at the hands of his caregivers without complaint. No one can be sure what kind of president he might have become but his character and experience seemed promising. The last president to be born in a log cabin, Garfields early life was one of abject poverty. Rising above it he became a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a reformer who fought for black rights and liberty. On his death bed, in agony, he still did not rage against the dying light but rather expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of sympathy and concern the American people showed BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington The killing of President Garfield him: How kind and thoughtful! What a generous people! From the gallows his deranged assassin made a valid point in saying that he only shot the president. The doctors killed him.

the Animal Center or at your vets office. An extra leash is good but a strong carrier or cage will provide a safe and secure place for your pet if he has to be kept in a separate area. Plan in advance and know what you will do if you have to evacuate. Some hotels allow pets but not all. Vangard High School is the only local shelter that allows pets but they are housed in a separate building. There are other things to consider about providing for your pet(s) during a disaster and keeping them safe. This is just a reminder that your pet is part of your family and needs to be included in your emergency planning. Have a safe summer! If you want to know more about the SPCA or need to reach us for help with an animal, please call 352-3620985.

Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six times a year (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures of the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Car pooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join.Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, May 22, we played the Criers Tournament but we did not see anyone crying because after we played we were able to decrease the score of our worst hole on both the front and the back sides to what would have been par on that hole.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The SPCA does not have regular meetings during the summer but work continues. We still provide bags of pet food for the Meals On Wheels pet food program. We are constantly in need of more dog and cat food to fill the bags for almost 100 pets. You can help by donating bags of dry food. You can place them in a container below the bulletin board in Winn Dixie or by calling 352-362-0985 and well make arrangements to pick it up. We also continue to foster and place dogs and cats that need new homes. We desperately need more volunteers to be fosters. You need not be a member of SPCA to apply. Please call 352-3620985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. We currently have two mature cats and several kittens that need homes. Pumpkin and Kitten have been in their foster home for eight months and really need to find their forever home. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to find out more and schedule a meeting. We are trying to find a home for an older dog whos mom just passed away. Buffy is a sweet 9 year old Shih Tzu. She follows you around and loves to be with you. Her main problem is that shes deaf, but dogs easily compensate for that by watching you closely. She doesnt require long walks so will be great for a senior. Call 352362-0985 to see if shes still available. Cute little dogs like Buffy are usually easy to place but larger dogs are not so lucky. The Marion County Animal center has several dogs that have been there for over a year. These are loving dogs that just need the right home. The two we are highlighting are both pit bull mixes. That is a plus, not a minus. Mixed breed dogs are healthier and dont have the negative traits associated with purebreds. Artie (ID A040037) is an energetic dog who needs walking and/or play time. If you are a runner, you need a dog like Artie to run with you. He is good with other dogs but gets excited and jumps when greeting people. Hes a quick learner so that can be controlled with some positive training. Ty (ID A047020) is more mellow than Artie. He is a friendly dog that will win you over with his goofy smile. Both dogs are at 5 years old, between 45-50 pounds, and with a little time and training will make a perfect pet for the right family. Please go by the Animal Center on Baseline Road to check out these great pets. Since June is the start of Hurricane Season, the Animal Center has published a bulletin on disaster preparedness for your pets. You can get one online at their website: marioncountyfl.org/Animalcenter. It lists the things you will need to stock up on and set aside for an emergency situation. Some of these items are obvious, such as food, toys, bedding, litter and/or doggie poop bags, but some things you may not have thought of. These items include the animals vet records, proof of rabies vaccination, an ID tag and a photo, in case he gets separated from you. A microchip is invaluable when this happens. You can get one for your pet cheaply at Work continues at SPCA PAWS AND CLAWS M DMaria Devine This is Artie.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com In the 19th century and the first 50 years of the 20th, many poorly paid, unmarried teachers, particularly females, lived together out of financial necessity. Whether their living arrangements were anything other than shared expenses was seldom questioned. Of course there were village busy biddies who would speculate in social circles about teachers living together, without any factual information on which to base whispered suspicions about sexuality. Gossipers feed on subjects which are none of their business. Opposite sex living together was less tolerated. Shared living by opposite-sex teachers would have resulted in the discharge of both participants, even if their arrangement were chaste. Today opposite-sex living arrangements are more common than matrimony (see 2010 U.S. Census). Here in the 21st century there is a political impetus to establish spousal rights for same-sex partners, by legalizing the couplings and calling them marriages. When he first ran for national office President Obama said I am not willing to have the states deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex. More recently Mr. Obama said his opinion has evolved. He endorsed same-sex marriage. We think Mr. Obamas earlier position civil unions was correct and in keeping with rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Since aboriginal times, sexual selection has meant the choice made by a man or woman of a member of the opposite sex. In civilized western culture the legal definition of marriage has been affirmed in many cases, over centuries: A civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, to discharge for each other and for the community the duties legally incumbent on those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex. In other words, fidelity and procreation of the human species. Authority to perform marriages is granted by states to judges, court clerks, justices of the peace, and clergy members, who must report marriages performed to the office which issued the license. Catholic marriages, Jewish marriages, Orthodox marriages, Muslim marriages, and other rituals by which a couple may choose to declare the essence of their mutual commitment, are ceremonies which are not essential to establishing a legal marriage. The issue of legalizing samesex couplings isnt going away. Thirty-one states have banned same-sex marriage. Four others will consider the subject in the fall elections. We have no argument with assuring the benefits of our constitution to same-sex couples, but under some description other than marriage. That term was defined long before Adam and Eve. So-called same-sex marriage is legal in six states. which were too lazy, inept, or intimidated to give the couplings a distinguishing name such as linkage, joynage, unionage, partnerage, mergerage, symphisage (growing together), or just plain civil union. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 1, 2012 My first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season starts today, June 1. Tropical storms Alberto and Beryl jumped the gun by being the first named storm in May. We didnt have too much to worry about from them, although we got needed rain from Beryl, and lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

Tropical storm Alberto, which swirled off the East Coast a couple of weeks ago, and Tropical storm Beryl, which drenched us over the weekend, were early reminders that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June 1 and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. The forecast includes 12 named tropical storms, five named hurricanes and two major hurricanes. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-may-care types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a hohum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bank just in time for the holidays.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont blow off the hurricane season You always recall your first hurricane Jim Flynn Columnist Equal protection by any other name is the same Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED GUEST COMMENTARY BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the CitizenAgain this year, for the twentieth year in a row, my wonderful 92 year old friend who is my neighbor here in Fairfield Village worked the entire month of April collecting donations for the March for Babies, formerly called the March of Dimes, which was held this year on Saturday, April 28. Amazingly, this agile and spritely gentleman walked the entire five-mile course in just one hour and 45 minutes. Even just as amazing was his collection of $1,850 to be used to help prevent and correct birth defects. This is particularly true in these difficult economic times when most of his donations were very small because many people are having financial issues that consume most of their cash. Curry asked me if I would write a follow-up to my previous article as a thank you to all the many people who contributed or Curry Andrews: Thank you for helping my babies PLEASESEEANDREWS, PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A heads-up alert to all free-spirited Ewes and Rams: Be wary of a deal that could result in compromising your independence. Check every detail before making a commitment. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New facts emerge that help put an irksome workplace situation in perspective. Meanwhile, pay more attention to a family member who needs your wisdom and strength. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A slight setback in plans is nothing to worry about. Use this delay to deal with a number of matters you might have ignored for too long. Expect news from someone in your past. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre entering a period of stability. Use it to straighten out any outstanding problems related to a very personal situation. Also, pay closer attention to financial matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being a social Lion, you might well benefit from staying out of the spotlight for a while. You need time to reflect on some upcoming decisions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A difficult family situation improves, thanks to your timely intervention. You can now start to focus more of your attention on preparing for a possible career change. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An on-the-job change works to your benefit by offering new opportunities. Its up to you to check them out. Meanwhile, a stalled romantic situation starts up again. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That flare-up of Scorpian temperament cools down, leaving you more receptive to suggestions about changes that might need to be made in your personal life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unusual period of indecisiveness is a mite frustrating. But things soon clear up, allowing the sage Sagittarian to make those wise pronouncements again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel that you know best, but its not a good idea at this time to try to force your opinions on others. Best advice: Inspire change by example, not by intimidation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Some setbacks could affect your plans to fortify your financial situation. But things start moving again by early next week. Meanwhile, enjoy your resurgent social life. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Show that often-hidden steely spine of yours as you once again stand up to an emotional bully. Youve got the strength to do it, especially as friends rally to your side.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com helped in any way. This project is very dear to Currys heart, which, by the way was the recipient of a new valve a couple of years ago. That feat is within itself most remarkable because people of Currys mature age are not usually considered candidates for heart surgery at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Gainesville. However, because of Currys walking regimen and healthy lifestyle, he was able to have the surgery and has made remarkable progress since then. How many of us know someone of Currys years to be able to work a regular job which he does joyfully at the Publix in Paddock Shopping Center? Many of Ocalas residents know Curry and love his winning smile and jovial banter as he helps them with their groceries on a regular basis. The other employees love working with Curry too, but one (who asked not to be identified) told me that Curry can outdo me on a regular basis and addedand I am a whole lot younger so I dont have any excuse. As I close this special Thank You from Curry Andrews, I would like to add my own Thank you! to this generous, loving, unique man who works so hard to help others. I feel blessed to know him and even more blessed to be his friend. I love you, Curry, and so do lots and lots of other people and little babies who will not know you but will live and be healthy because of the walking and working you have done for them. You, sir, are one of the special breed of men and women about whom we refer when we speak of The Greatest Generation. Priscilla Geissal is a columnist for the West Marion Messenger. ANDREWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Our water supplyHow can a state that is surrounded by water become a state that cant supply its residents with clean drinking water? We have been told that there is an unlimited supply of fresh water coming from the aquifer that has supplied Silver Springs for the last several hundred years. Drought and over pumping has played its part in drying up our most precious resource of an unlimited supply of the purest drinking water in America. I feel that the worst assault on our drinking water is yet to come through our elected politicians. These appointed and elected representatives who are in charge of this once valuable and precious resource of drinking water may have already made their decision to give a few land owners the rest of the states drinking water. I believe that the importance of salvaging whats left of the water that flows from our aquifers should be left to the voting public and put on the ballot for this falls election. Let the people of our state make this all important decision. I am afraid that the decision has already been made to sell our water to the highest bidder (and that isnt us) that has purchased the votes with the approval of our pro business politicians in Tallahassee. Who will admit that they are responsible for the low water levels in our lakes and rivers? Who will admit that our boat docks only lead to empty dust bowls that were once a great place to sit and splash the water with your feet or maybe do a little swimming or fishing? Are you part of the population that can only water your lawn once a week while someone else can drill over 130 new wells into the aquifer for a new cattle ranch that will win approval by our state legislators who own the votes of our state water board? These same people have allowed well water and spring water to be bottled and sold back to us with the profits going to a few business owners. Our states water supply should be saved by the voting public and not left to the politicians to decide. Jerry Segovis OTOWFix governmentOccupy Wall Street and The Tea Party agree the government is broken, and so is Wall Street. They are both in need of repair. How, is the question? While these groups agree on issues, they disagree on solutions, and tactics. The Tea Party wants peaceful tactics and resolution. Through the ballot, and the repeal of offending laws, The Federal Reserve Law 1913. For one. Pulling out of the UN, a money pit of the highest magnitude. All our money buys us nothing but hate, the infringement of our sovereignty. We are paying for our own political rape, and murder. Is this what we want? I prefer to cut out the diseased parts, and save the good stuff, like freedom, and God given rights. OWS wants blood, and socialism. Who is the more mature? More knowledgeable? More reasonable? More deserving of your vote? What tactics do ordinary citizens prefer? If you have a preference, you had better step up to the plate, and vote, or you might never have a choice, again. Dictatorship holds no fascination for me. We are on the precipice. Do we fall over the cliff, or save ourselves? What will you do the day after our money becomes worthless? You will be penniless, unable to pay a bill, or buy a loaf of bread? Think long and hard about, what you want. Vote Smart! D.I. Larson Ocala More letters, Page 10 After casual dating for a few months, Bill began to pay closer attention to Sandra and after a picnic at Crescent Park, a local beach, they started dating more steadily. Sandra freely admits to playing hard to get which apparently paid off. A year later, they were married and last May they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. The Brotherhoods have three children, two sons and a daughter. David lives in Ocala; Darlene lives in Connecticut and Douglas lives in California. They have six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In their early years of married life, Sandra stayed home with her children until they were of school age. She then took work with the Mine Safety Administration testing the effectiveness of gas masks. She also worked taking care of a special education student. Among her other jobs, she was a quality control technician for Norelco Corp. and a plant facility technician. Later she enrolled in Groton College and trained in dining services. She admits to not liking to cook to this day but she does it and according to all reports, she does it very well. Bill obtained a job with a fence construction firm in Hartford, Connecticut. Commuting between Connecticut and Rhode Island was too much so the couple moved to Niantic. Bill later began his career working for General Dynamics. For the better part of his last fifteen years with the company Bill worked on a tug boat. When the company got out of the boat business, Bill retired. Eight years ago, the two of them moved to Cherrywood. At the time, both Bills mother and Sandras mom said, Not without us. So shortly after they moved, both of their moms moved in with them. Since the mothers had known each other even longer than Bill and Sandra, the two got along famously. Last year Sandras mom passed away but Marie, Bills mom, still resides with the couple. Sandras experience as a care giver and her compassionate heart has served her well in these times. For their 50th wedding anniversary, Sandra and Bills kids gave them a surprise party. It lasted two days and was highlighted by a renewal of wedding vows ceremony at Queen of Peace Catholic Church. The following August, they took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate. In spite of her many obligations, Sandra is very active in the community. She serves on our CERT Team; is active in the Veterans Club; is a member of the Feathered Friends organization (formerly the Red Hat Society) and supports many of the activities here in the community. You have seen Bill and Sandra at the 100 Days of Summer events; the Fun and Sun games; Bocce Ball; Oktoberfest; the Garden Club, and many other special times. With quick and ready smiles that belie some of the hardships that they have and are facing, with a quiet courage and loving hearts, Sandra and Bill are a joy to be around.

Today is First Friday Art Walk. From 6 to 8 p.m., you can watch local artists work on their craft at Ocalas downtown square. If you cant make to the square, just read some artful stories in todays Pun Alley.Heavenly artLittle Johnnys grandmother took him to the park on a Saturday morning. It was springtime and many beautiful flowers were in bloom. His grandmother remarked, Doesnt it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you? Johnny said, Yes, God did it and he did it left handed. This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him, What makes you say God did this with his left hand? Well, said Johnny, we learned at Sunday school that Jesus sits on Gods right hand.The statueBack when General Minh was in charge in South Vietnam an artist came to him and pleaded to make a statue in his honor, at government expense of course. Please, General Minh, you are the peoples hero, he told him. Yes, but make the sculpture in bronze, replied the general. So the artist made the sculpture, but when it was unveiled in a small private ceremony, the general was furious. For the sculpture was made in silver. I want bronze, he said, I want bronze! The artist then made the sculpture out of bronze. When the sculpture was revealed the general was overjoyed at the wonderful bronze likeness. The artist asked the general, Why did you insist that the sculpture be made of bronze? Why? Ill tell you why, said the general. Because General Minh prefer bronze.MiniaturesI saw some things at an auction labeled Art Objects. Considering what they looked like, Id object too. When the artist thought about drawing a cube he had a mental block. The absentminded sculptor put his model to bed and started chiseling on his wife. A good artist draws the line somewhere. An artist who specialized in 3-D painting borrowed Alka-Seltzers slogan: Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz Oh! What A Relief It Is! An acquaintance thinks he is an artist. He draws welfare. An artist painted a picture of a canary and thought he could sell it by calling it Mothers Whistler. An artist without a palette makes paintings without taste. One artist uses a strange medium. He paints everything on an empty stomach. The Mona Lisa was brought up in court on charges of murder; but it turned out that shed been framed. An artists model is a girl who is often unsuited for her work. I may not be a great artist, but I am really good at drawing a blank.Color dotsA young couple, Wilbur and Kay, were exploring the exhibits at the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles one afternoon, when they came upon the museums famous collection of Eighteenth-Century French Impressionist Art. Wilbur, unfamiliar as he was with the fine points of the period, came across a well-known painting that he mistakenly thought was an example of pointillism. He immediately called his wife over and naively exclaimed, Kay, Seurat! Seurat! She took one bored look at the painting and replied, Whatever, Wilby, Wilby.Cutting commentJohn worked in an art supply store that sold artists canvas by the yard, and it was available in either of two widths, 36 inches or 48 inches. A customer asked, Can you please cut some canvas for me? John asked, Certainly, what width? The customer replied with a confused and slightly annoyed look, Scissors?Music, musicTheres a history of crossover artists in many musical genres. Even George Gershwin occasionally strayed into other markets. In fact he sometimes mixed it up quite a bit, as he did in one of his most famous albums, Rap CD & Blues.Its a gasRecently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, breaking in, evading security, getting out and escaping with the goods, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Oak Run no-walking article was incorrectIve lived in Oak Run for 11 years, and often disagreed with Decca, but with this one they hit a home run. Oak Run is probably the most natural and beautiful community west of I-75. Yep, no sidewalks or Villages type golf cart paths, a natural habitat for birds and animals, but most of all people. You know, there are even people here who want the trees cut down, Thank goodness Decca wont let trees to be cut down. As a comparison, Bay Hill, where Arnold Palmer lives and where Ive played his golf course, has no sidewalks or cart paths, and they dont complain. I live in the Fountains and on 73rd Circle, the same as the writer, but probably longer. If that person wants to walk, the Circle in the Fountains is 1/2 of a block shy of one (1) mile. Plenty of walking area, plus all the other beautiful neighborhoods. Before my wife had two back surgeries, she walked 2 1/2 miles morning and afternoon and never went on the boulevard. Now, Im a veteran of the Korean War, having served on the aircraft carrier USS Leyte CV 32, and this is one veteran who appreciates, and even wrote sometime earlier, that there should be no walking on the boulevard. Taking away my rights, hogwash. This person has absolutely no right to speak for veterans. Will this help save peoples lives, absolutely. Were not in Washington, DC, .New York City, or St. Louis, from where I retired as vice president of St. Louis Blue Shield. This is a rural, all natural retirement community, and just because we have two types of senior citizens here, those who are physically old and those mentally old, should tell you something. I wonder if the writer ever served in the service or a war zone or more importantly, ever had to pick up a dead comrade, I have. So, dont tell me what rights Im being denied, but think of the sacrifices many of us made so people, like the writer could rant and rave, without making common sense. It should be pointed out, there were even people who would walk the boulevard with golf clubs and swing them at cars if they got to close to them. Now does that take intelligence? Again C, or average is not too bright. There should be accolades to Decca, and Ill be at the head of the line, for their action rather than criticize them. Who knows, maybe the writers life has been saved by the new rule. The next restriction should be to keep bicycles off of the boulevard. Can you imagine 60, 70 or 80 year old people riding bikes on the boulevard? More disasters waiting to happen. Im 80, and I sure wouldnt. Bill Ford Oak RunActive residents in Oak Runs futureTheyre coming, theyre coming. Who you may ask? Baby Boomers or as some refer to this age group Golden Boomers. These folks will be gravitating to Florida just as generations before them have. But the Boomers are different. Theyve always been different. As they grow in age, their age old habits wont change. They love hiking, biking, walking, and jogging. When they retire to Florida they will be looking for a place to live that offers easy access to these activities. Decca needs to wake up and realize that if they want to be competitive in the housing market they need to appeal to these folks. Its no longer business as usual. Places like the Villages have realized that, and thats why they are one of the biggest housing success stories in the entire United States. Even impervious to the latest downtrends in the housing market. I know that Oak Run doesnt care to be another Village. But we could emulate some activities that make them great. Perhaps we should have a lane on the boulevard designated for walkers, bikers and golf carts. Perhaps if we controlled the speed of the cars on the boulevard, and not the pedestrians this would help. Has anyone thought of a few strategically placed speed bumps here and there? Perhaps DECCA management could work with local businesses and traffic management officials and develop access roads for golf carts to visit stores in areas such as Wal-Mart. Perhaps, and this is a crazy idea, how about a dog park? Weve lost one of our golf courses. Now that beautiful piece of property just sits there with no trespassing signs posted every 50 feet or so. With just a little bit of additional development this would be a great place to walk, and jog, and perhaps even some park benches installed as a resting place along the way. Certainly in that acreage, somewhere, theres space enough for a dog park. Notices in our monthly newsletter that basically say, stay off any, and all property, that does not belong to you and posting signs on the boulevard restricting all traffic other than automobile do nothing other than create a hostile attitude toward Decca management. As I said above the generation now coming to Florida is an active generation and they will move to areas that cater to these activities. Decca suggests we do our exercising in our back yards and stay off of their property. Well, their 50X 50 yards will not appeal to, nor contain these folks. Decca needs to grow, and endorse change. Not hide their head in the sand. They need to look at other retirement communities to see why they are so appealing, and incorporate, as best they can, these activities into Oak Run. Maybe by doing so, we too could maintain and sustain our property values and stop the equity loss that we are all experiencing. Yes, in this day and age its no longer business as usual.

PAGE 11

June is quite famous for the variety of nuptial activities. I am not sure exactly why June is the month of choice for these couples; I just go along with the flow. Consequently, through the years, I have officiated at many weddings during the month of June. I must confess that weddings are not my favorite form of activity. I would much rather be doing something else, anything else, than officiating at the wedding ceremony of a young couple who are in love. When I first began this area of my pastoral work, I was very nervous. I was concerned that people were watching and judging me and therefore I needed to have everything perfect. The day of the wedding found me an absolute nervous wreck. If it was not for several Apple Fritters that morning, I am not sure how I would get through the day. I feel that my personal inconvenience at these nuptial ceremonies qualified me to indulge in eating several, if not many, Apple Fritters. Everybody needs something to help endure the inconveniences of life. Apple Fritter is my chosen remedy. I remember when I came to the shocking conclusion that nobody at the wedding ceremony was watching me. The wedding ceremony was concluded and the reception was over and I was in the restroom washing my hands when I happened to look into the mirror. There to my chagrin I discovered that the back of my collar was not covering my tie. Nobody even hinted that I had a wardrobe malfunction. It was then I realized that nobody was paying any attention to me. I could come to the wedding ceremony in a swimsuit and nobody would notice. Not that I have been tempted in this area, mind you. After all, the focus of the whole affair is the bride. Since this amazing discovery, weddings have not been quite so difficult for me. I do not worry about my appearance because nobody else is worrying about my appearance. I often counsel young grooms who seem quite nervous that nobody is even aware of their presence. Nobody comes to a wedding to see the groom. The only thing that really matters is the bride. After a wedding everybody always says, Wasnt the bride beautiful? Or, Didnt the bride look beautiful in her wedding dress? I have yet to hear somebody say, Wasnt that groom handsome? Or, I loved the grooms tuxedo. It just never happens. This is the reason why every groom wears a rented tuxedo. Nobody is admiring him or his attire. The wedding dress is something altogether different. Very few brides rent a wedding dress. Even though they are only going to wear it, supposedly, once in their lifetime, they all want to buy that special wedding dress. One reason I am not so very fond of weddings is the premarital counseling involved. Of all the counseling I have given through the years, I am wondering if anybody ever paid attention to what I said. I think I could do the whole counseling session in pig Latin and the couple would sit there smiling at me as though they understood every word I was saying. With that in mind, I have tried through the years to make the counseling sessions as long and painful as possible. If they can survive a series of premarital counseling sessions from me, then they deserve a lifetime of holy matrimonial bliss. One strange phenomenon I have seen in weddings throughout the years is the number of people who cry at weddings. For some it may be overwhelmed with happiness. Others may be overwhelmed with memories of their own wedding. But the father of the bride is the one I watch. It is very hard for some of these fathers to keep back the tears, not because they are losing a daughter, or because they are gaining a son-in-law, but because they are losing a whole lot of money on this wedding. Then it got me thinking. Most weddings cost a small fortune. Of course small is a relative term. A young bride coached by her mother will find ways to burn through the fathers bank account. No price is too much to pay for this daughter of ours, the mother explains. Shes worth everything it costs. And the father weeps some more. Especially if there is a younger daughter in the wings. Looking into the situation the more I discovered just how much people pay for their weddings. When anybody asks me about performing the wed-Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I cry at weddings, too OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE12 It was an event that rocked the world and sent Jewish pride up to a new level. The event established the State of Israel as a military force to be reckoned with and set the stage for other victories to follow. Its military and political implications were extraordinary but not to be neglected was the impact it had on Jewish religious theology, for in six days the Lord created heaven and earth and all it contained and in six days the Israel Defense Forces conquered all their enemies and on June 7, 1967, 45 years ago, liberated the City of Jerusalem and freed the Temple Mount. The historic event was described in a radio broadcast heard on Israeli airwaves. In a cry that stirred the Jewish nation, Colonel Motta Gur shouted, The Temple Mount is in our hands! Brigadier General Shlomo Goren, who later became Chief Rabbi of Israel, approached the sacred mount, recited the El Molay Rachamin prayer for the fallen soldiers and blew a triumphant blast on the shofar. Soldiers, who were not even religious, wept at the emotional capture of the very center of Jewish worship from ancient times and recited the Shecheianu, the prayer for thanksgiving for joyful events. General Goren recited: Blessed are You who comforts Zion and builds Jerusalem. The Old and New City of Jerusalem were now united and the Jews, denied access to the most holy site in Judaism for 19 years, The Western Wall, were now able to visit the sacred spot. The Western Wall or Hakotel Hamaaravi is the last remaining remnant of the Second Temple built by Herod. In 70 C.E. the Temple was destroyed by the Romans, the Jews were forced into exile and were without a homeland until 1948. In 1948, Jerusalem was captured by the Jordanians and the city was divided into the Old and New cities, with the Western Wall in Arab hands. Jews were denied access to the holy site until June 7, 1967 when the Israeli Army liberated the area during what would be called the Six Day War. For centuries, the Western Wall has been a focus of prayer and emotion. In the Middle Ages, it became known as the Wailing Wall because so many Jews came there to weep over the loss of their Temple and their sovereignty as a people. Since the unification of Jerusalem, the term has negative connotations and its use is discouraged. The Wall itself actually has three layers, because like many sites in Israel, it was built on top of an existing structure. The Wall extends some 60 feet below. It was actually a retaining wall to the Second Temple and legend has it that it was built by the poor people. Excavations around the area have revealed valuable artifacts dating back centuries. Today people visit the Western Wall, as I have done, to pray and meditate. It is a site sacred to the three Abrahamic faiths and I have stood side by side with Christians who have worshipped at this sacred place. I have also witnessed bar mitzvah ceremonies taken place there. As in traditional circles, a separation, divides men from women worshippers. In recent years, a courageous group of women, called the Women of the Wall, have sought and received permission for holding all-female Torah services at the Temple Mount. Sadly, this has been received with anger by some conservative Orthodox Jewish groups, and scrapes and violence erupted. Visitors to the Kotel, often leave little prayer petitions in the cracks. Symbolically, I believe that is what keeps this 2,000 plus year old wall from falling down. It is believed that God answers prayers left at the Wall. The former governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, had one of his aides leave a prayer for our state at the holy site. I believe we escaped serious hurricanes that year! Legend says that on the fast day of Tishah BAv, the 9th of Av, the day the Temple was destroyed, the dew that clings to the Wall are actually tears she is shedding. Even as Jerusalem lay in ruins, the rabbis of the Talmud taught that the Temple was not destroyed for the Shekhinah (the Divine Presence) still dwells within. May the Shekhinah, whose Presence has never left the sacred site, continue to watch over Jerusalem and may she lead all the people of this holy city to a new era of peace and understanding.

What I am really saying is that I would prefer cash. I always leave that to the discretion of the groom. Usually, the groom is so discreet in paying me that I actually never see any money. When I discover how much the wedding has cost and how much I was not given as an honorarium for my services, I too, weep at weddings. Occasionally, I meet a young couple who understand the importance of a Christian marriage. Although it is viewed as oldfashioned, I like to reflect what the Bible says. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:24 KJV). This kind of a wedding calls for tears of joy.The R ev James L.

What I am really saying is that I would prefer cash. I always leave that to the discretion of the groom. Usually, the groom is so discreet in paying me that I actually never see any money. When I discover how much the wedding has cost and how much I was not given as an honorarium for my services, I too, weep at weddings. Occasionally, I meet a young couple who understand the importance of a Christian marriage. Although it is viewed as oldfashioned, I like to reflect what the Bible says. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:24 KJV). This kind of a wedding calls for tears of joy.The R ev James L.

Since the biggest expense is postage, if you have a few extra dollars that you can drop off at the clubhouse, your donation would be greatly appreciated. Here is an excerpt from Norellen in her own words: Were creating care packages to be sent to any American Hero at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany and Combat Support Hospitals in the Middle East. Often our injured men and women arrive for medical care without their belongings. You can help in our mission to provide honor and comfort for our troops.

At the same time as Bill was serving, a young soldier by the name of Elvis Presley was also stationed in Germany and they met. Sandra was going on group and double dates as was the custom in those days. On one evening when Bill had returned home, he went out with his brother on a double date. Sandra was his brothers date. Unable to find anyone to go on the rollercoaster with him, Bill asked Sandra. Having never been on one before, she agreed so he wouldnt have to go it alone. She hasnt been on one since.

June is quite famous for the variety of nuptial activities. I am not sure exactly why June is the month of choice for these couples; I just go along with the flow. Consequently, through the years, I have officiated at many weddings during the month of June. I must confess that weddings are not my favorite form of activity. I would much rather be doing something else, anything else, than officiating at the wedding ceremony of a young couple who are in love. When I first began this area of my pastoral work, I was very nervous. I was concerned that people were watching and judging me and therefore I needed to have everything perfect. The day of the wedding found me an absolute nervous wreck. If it was not for several Apple Fritters that morning, I am not sure how I would get through the day. I feel that my personal inconvenience at these nuptial ceremonies qualified me to indulge in eating several, if not many, Apple Fritters. Everybody needs something to help endure the inconveniences of life. Apple Fritter is my chosen remedy. I remember when I came to the shocking conclusion that nobody at the wedding ceremony was watching me. The wedding ceremony was concluded and the reception was over and I was in the restroom washing my hands when I happened to look into the mirror. There to my chagrin I discovered that the back of my collar was not covering my tie. Nobody even hinted that I had a wardrobe malfunction. It was then I realized that nobody was paying any attention to me. I could come to the wedding ceremony in a swimsuit and nobody would notice. Not that I have been tempted in this area, mind you. After all, the focus of the whole affair is the bride. Since this amazing discovery, weddings have not been quite so difficult for me. I do not worry about my appearance because nobody else is worrying about my appearance. I often counsel young grooms who seem quite nervous that nobody is even aware of their presence. Nobody comes to a wedding to see the groom. The only thing that really matters is the bride. After a wedding everybody always says, Wasnt the bride beautiful? Or, Didnt the bride look beautiful in her wedding dress? I have yet to hear somebody say, Wasnt that groom handsome? Or, I loved the grooms tuxedo. It just never happens. This is the reason why every groom wears a rented tuxedo. Nobody is admiring him or his attire. The wedding dress is something altogether different. Very few brides rent a wedding dress. Even though they are only going to wear it, supposedly, once in their lifetime, they all want to buy that special wedding dress. One reason I am not so very fond of weddings is the premarital counseling involved. Of all the counseling I have given through the years, I am wondering if anybody ever paid attention to what I said. I think I could do the whole counseling session in pig Latin and the couple would sit there smiling at me as though they understood every word I was saying. With that in mind, I have tried through the years to make the counseling sessions as long and painful as possible. If they can survive a series of premarital counseling sessions from me, then they deserve a lifetime of holy matrimonial bliss. One strange phenomenon I have seen in weddings throughout the years is the number of people who cry at weddings. For some it may be overwhelmed with happiness. Others may be overwhelmed with memories of their own wedding. But the father of the bride is the one I watch. It is very hard for some of these fathers to keep back the tears, not because they are losing a daughter, or because they are gaining a son-in-law, but because they are losing a whole lot of money on this wedding. Then it got me thinking. Most weddings cost a small fortune. Of course small is a relative term. A young bride coached by her mother will find ways to burn through the fathers bank account. No price is too much to pay for this daughter of ours, the mother explains. Shes worth everything it costs. And the father weeps some more. Especially if there is a younger daughter in the wings. Looking into the situation the more I discovered just how much people pay for their weddings. When anybody asks me about performing the wed-Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I cry at weddings, too OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE12 It was an event that rocked the world and sent Jewish pride up to a new level. The event established the State of Israel as a military force to be reckoned with and set the stage for other victories to follow. Its military and political implications were extraordinary but not to be neglected was the impact it had on Jewish religious theology, for in six days the Lord created heaven and earth and all it contained and in six days the Israel Defense Forces conquered all their enemies and on June 7, 1967, 45 years ago, liberated the City of Jerusalem and freed the Temple Mount. The historic event was described in a radio broadcast heard on Israeli airwaves. In a cry that stirred the Jewish nation, Colonel Motta Gur shouted, The Temple Mount is in our hands! Brigadier General Shlomo Goren, who later became Chief Rabbi of Israel, approached the sacred mount, recited the El Molay Rachamin prayer for the fallen soldiers and blew a triumphant blast on the shofar. Soldiers, who were not even religious, wept at the emotional capture of the very center of Jewish worship from ancient times and recited the Shecheianu, the prayer for thanksgiving for joyful events. General Goren recited: Blessed are You who comforts Zion and builds Jerusalem. The Old and New City of Jerusalem were now united and the Jews, denied access to the most holy site in Judaism for 19 years, The Western Wall, were now able to visit the sacred spot. The Western Wall or Hakotel Hamaaravi is the last remaining remnant of the Second Temple built by Herod. In 70 C.E. the Temple was destroyed by the Romans, the Jews were forced into exile and were without a homeland until 1948. In 1948, Jerusalem was captured by the Jordanians and the city was divided into the Old and New cities, with the Western Wall in Arab hands. Jews were denied access to the holy site until June 7, 1967 when the Israeli Army liberated the area during what would be called the Six Day War. For centuries, the Western Wall has been a focus of prayer and emotion. In the Middle Ages, it became known as the Wailing Wall because so many Jews came there to weep over the loss of their Temple and their sovereignty as a people. Since the unification of Jerusalem, the term has negative connotations and its use is discouraged. The Wall itself actually has three layers, because like many sites in Israel, it was built on top of an existing structure. The Wall extends some 60 feet below. It was actually a retaining wall to the Second Temple and legend has it that it was built by the poor people. Excavations around the area have revealed valuable artifacts dating back centuries. Today people visit the Western Wall, as I have done, to pray and meditate. It is a site sacred to the three Abrahamic faiths and I have stood side by side with Christians who have worshipped at this sacred place. I have also witnessed bar mitzvah ceremonies taken place there. As in traditional circles, a separation, divides men from women worshippers. In recent years, a courageous group of women, called the Women of the Wall, have sought and received permission for holding all-female Torah services at the Temple Mount. Sadly, this has been received with anger by some conservative Orthodox Jewish groups, and scrapes and violence erupted. Visitors to the Kotel, often leave little prayer petitions in the cracks. Symbolically, I believe that is what keeps this 2,000 plus year old wall from falling down. It is believed that God answers prayers left at the Wall. The former governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, had one of his aides leave a prayer for our state at the holy site. I believe we escaped serious hurricanes that year! Legend says that on the fast day of Tishah BAv, the 9th of Av, the day the Temple was destroyed, the dew that clings to the Wall are actually tears she is shedding. Even as Jerusalem lay in ruins, the rabbis of the Talmud taught that the Temple was not destroyed for the Shekhinah (the Divine Presence) still dwells within. May the Shekhinah, whose Presence has never left the sacred site, continue to watch over Jerusalem and may she lead all the people of this holy city to a new era of peace and understanding.

Today is First Friday Art Walk. From 6 to 8 p.m., you can watch local artists work on their craft at Ocalas downtown square. If you cant make to the square, just read some artful stories in todays Pun Alley.Heavenly artLittle Johnnys grandmother took him to the park on a Saturday morning. It was springtime and many beautiful flowers were in bloom. His grandmother remarked, Doesnt it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you? Johnny said, Yes, God did it and he did it left handed. This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him, What makes you say God did this with his left hand? Well, said Johnny, we learned at Sunday school that Jesus sits on Gods right hand.The statueBack when General Minh was in charge in South Vietnam an artist came to him and pleaded to make a statue in his honor, at government expense of course. Please, General Minh, you are the peoples hero, he told him. Yes, but make the sculpture in bronze, replied the general. So the artist made the sculpture, but when it was unveiled in a small private ceremony, the general was furious. For the sculpture was made in silver. I want bronze, he said, I want bronze! The artist then made the sculpture out of bronze. When the sculpture was revealed the general was overjoyed at the wonderful bronze likeness. The artist asked the general, Why did you insist that the sculpture be made of bronze? Why? Ill tell you why, said the general. Because General Minh prefer bronze.MiniaturesI saw some things at an auction labeled Art Objects. Considering what they looked like, Id object too. When the artist thought about drawing a cube he had a mental block. The absentminded sculptor put his model to bed and started chiseling on his wife. A good artist draws the line somewhere. An artist who specialized in 3-D painting borrowed Alka-Seltzers slogan: Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz Oh! What A Relief It Is! An acquaintance thinks he is an artist. He draws welfare. An artist painted a picture of a canary and thought he could sell it by calling it Mothers Whistler. An artist without a palette makes paintings without taste. One artist uses a strange medium. He paints everything on an empty stomach. The Mona Lisa was brought up in court on charges of murder; but it turned out that shed been framed. An artists model is a girl who is often unsuited for her work. I may not be a great artist, but I am really good at drawing a blank.Color dotsA young couple, Wilbur and Kay, were exploring the exhibits at the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles one afternoon, when they came upon the museums famous collection of Eighteenth-Century French Impressionist Art. Wilbur, unfamiliar as he was with the fine points of the period, came across a well-known painting that he mistakenly thought was an example of pointillism. He immediately called his wife over and naively exclaimed, Kay, Seurat! Seurat! She took one bored look at the painting and replied, Whatever, Wilby, Wilby.Cutting commentJohn worked in an art supply store that sold artists canvas by the yard, and it was available in either of two widths, 36 inches or 48 inches. A customer asked, Can you please cut some canvas for me? John asked, Certainly, what width? The customer replied with a confused and slightly annoyed look, Scissors?Music, musicTheres a history of crossover artists in many musical genres. Even George Gershwin occasionally strayed into other markets. In fact he sometimes mixed it up quite a bit, as he did in one of his most famous albums, Rap CD & Blues.Its a gasRecently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, breaking in, evading security, getting out and escaping with the goods, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Oak Run no-walking article was incorrectIve lived in Oak Run for 11 years, and often disagreed with Decca, but with this one they hit a home run. Oak Run is probably the most natural and beautiful community west of I-75. Yep, no sidewalks or Villages type golf cart paths, a natural habitat for birds and animals, but most of all people. You know, there are even people here who want the trees cut down, Thank goodness Decca wont let trees to be cut down. As a comparison, Bay Hill, where Arnold Palmer lives and where Ive played his golf course, has no sidewalks or cart paths, and they dont complain. I live in the Fountains and on 73rd Circle, the same as the writer, but probably longer. If that person wants to walk, the Circle in the Fountains is 1/2 of a block shy of one (1) mile. Plenty of walking area, plus all the other beautiful neighborhoods. Before my wife had two back surgeries, she walked 2 1/2 miles morning and afternoon and never went on the boulevard. Now, Im a veteran of the Korean War, having served on the aircraft carrier USS Leyte CV 32, and this is one veteran who appreciates, and even wrote sometime earlier, that there should be no walking on the boulevard. Taking away my rights, hogwash. This person has absolutely no right to speak for veterans. Will this help save peoples lives, absolutely. Were not in Washington, DC, .New York City, or St. Louis, from where I retired as vice president of St. Louis Blue Shield. This is a rural, all natural retirement community, and just because we have two types of senior citizens here, those who are physically old and those mentally old, should tell you something. I wonder if the writer ever served in the service or a war zone or more importantly, ever had to pick up a dead comrade, I have. So, dont tell me what rights Im being denied, but think of the sacrifices many of us made so people, like the writer could rant and rave, without making common sense. It should be pointed out, there were even people who would walk the boulevard with golf clubs and swing them at cars if they got to close to them. Now does that take intelligence? Again C, or average is not too bright. There should be accolades to Decca, and Ill be at the head of the line, for their action rather than criticize them. Who knows, maybe the writers life has been saved by the new rule. The next restriction should be to keep bicycles off of the boulevard. Can you imagine 60, 70 or 80 year old people riding bikes on the boulevard? More disasters waiting to happen. Im 80, and I sure wouldnt. Bill Ford Oak RunActive residents in Oak Runs futureTheyre coming, theyre coming. Who you may ask? Baby Boomers or as some refer to this age group Golden Boomers. These folks will be gravitating to Florida just as generations before them have. But the Boomers are different. Theyve always been different. As they grow in age, their age old habits wont change. They love hiking, biking, walking, and jogging. When they retire to Florida they will be looking for a place to live that offers easy access to these activities. Decca needs to wake up and realize that if they want to be competitive in the housing market they need to appeal to these folks. Its no longer business as usual. Places like the Villages have realized that, and thats why they are one of the biggest housing success stories in the entire United States. Even impervious to the latest downtrends in the housing market. I know that Oak Run doesnt care to be another Village. But we could emulate some activities that make them great. Perhaps we should have a lane on the boulevard designated for walkers, bikers and golf carts. Perhaps if we controlled the speed of the cars on the boulevard, and not the pedestrians this would help. Has anyone thought of a few strategically placed speed bumps here and there? Perhaps DECCA management could work with local businesses and traffic management officials and develop access roads for golf carts to visit stores in areas such as Wal-Mart. Perhaps, and this is a crazy idea, how about a dog park? Weve lost one of our golf courses. Now that beautiful piece of property just sits there with no trespassing signs posted every 50 feet or so. With just a little bit of additional development this would be a great place to walk, and jog, and perhaps even some park benches installed as a resting place along the way. Certainly in that acreage, somewhere, theres space enough for a dog park. Notices in our monthly newsletter that basically say, stay off any, and all property, that does not belong to you and posting signs on the boulevard restricting all traffic other than automobile do nothing other than create a hostile attitude toward Decca management. As I said above the generation now coming to Florida is an active generation and they will move to areas that cater to these activities. Decca suggests we do our exercising in our back yards and stay off of their property. Well, their 50X 50 yards will not appeal to, nor contain these folks. Decca needs to grow, and endorse change. Not hide their head in the sand. They need to look at other retirement communities to see why they are so appealing, and incorporate, as best they can, these activities into Oak Run. Maybe by doing so, we too could maintain and sustain our property values and stop the equity loss that we are all experiencing. Yes, in this day and age its no longer business as usual.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com helped in any way. This project is very dear to Currys heart, which, by the way was the recipient of a new valve a couple of years ago. That feat is within itself most remarkable because people of Currys mature age are not usually considered candidates for heart surgery at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Gainesville. However, because of Currys walking regimen and healthy lifestyle, he was able to have the surgery and has made remarkable progress since then. How many of us know someone of Currys years to be able to work a regular job which he does joyfully at the Publix in Paddock Shopping Center? Many of Ocalas residents know Curry and love his winning smile and jovial banter as he helps them with their groceries on a regular basis. The other employees love working with Curry too, but one (who asked not to be identified) told me that Curry can outdo me on a regular basis and addedand I am a whole lot younger so I dont have any excuse. As I close this special Thank You from Curry Andrews, I would like to add my own Thank you! to this generous, loving, unique man who works so hard to help others. I feel blessed to know him and even more blessed to be his friend. I love you, Curry, and so do lots and lots of other people and little babies who will not know you but will live and be healthy because of the walking and working you have done for them. You, sir, are one of the special breed of men and women about whom we refer when we speak of The Greatest Generation. Priscilla Geissal is a columnist for the West Marion Messenger. ANDREWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Our water supplyHow can a state that is surrounded by water become a state that cant supply its residents with clean drinking water? We have been told that there is an unlimited supply of fresh water coming from the aquifer that has supplied Silver Springs for the last several hundred years. Drought and over pumping has played its part in drying up our most precious resource of an unlimited supply of the purest drinking water in America. I feel that the worst assault on our drinking water is yet to come through our elected politicians. These appointed and elected representatives who are in charge of this once valuable and precious resource of drinking water may have already made their decision to give a few land owners the rest of the states drinking water. I believe that the importance of salvaging whats left of the water that flows from our aquifers should be left to the voting public and put on the ballot for this falls election. Let the people of our state make this all important decision. I am afraid that the decision has already been made to sell our water to the highest bidder (and that isnt us) that has purchased the votes with the approval of our pro business politicians in Tallahassee. Who will admit that they are responsible for the low water levels in our lakes and rivers? Who will admit that our boat docks only lead to empty dust bowls that were once a great place to sit and splash the water with your feet or maybe do a little swimming or fishing? Are you part of the population that can only water your lawn once a week while someone else can drill over 130 new wells into the aquifer for a new cattle ranch that will win approval by our state legislators who own the votes of our state water board? These same people have allowed well water and spring water to be bottled and sold back to us with the profits going to a few business owners. Our states water supply should be saved by the voting public and not left to the politicians to decide. Jerry Segovis OTOWFix governmentOccupy Wall Street and The Tea Party agree the government is broken, and so is Wall Street. They are both in need of repair. How, is the question? While these groups agree on issues, they disagree on solutions, and tactics. The Tea Party wants peaceful tactics and resolution. Through the ballot, and the repeal of offending laws, The Federal Reserve Law 1913. For one. Pulling out of the UN, a money pit of the highest magnitude. All our money buys us nothing but hate, the infringement of our sovereignty. We are paying for our own political rape, and murder. Is this what we want? I prefer to cut out the diseased parts, and save the good stuff, like freedom, and God given rights. OWS wants blood, and socialism. Who is the more mature? More knowledgeable? More reasonable? More deserving of your vote? What tactics do ordinary citizens prefer? If you have a preference, you had better step up to the plate, and vote, or you might never have a choice, again. Dictatorship holds no fascination for me. We are on the precipice. Do we fall over the cliff, or save ourselves? What will you do the day after our money becomes worthless? You will be penniless, unable to pay a bill, or buy a loaf of bread? Think long and hard about, what you want. Vote Smart! D.I. Larson Ocala More letters, Page 10 After casual dating for a few months, Bill began to pay closer attention to Sandra and after a picnic at Crescent Park, a local beach, they started dating more steadily. Sandra freely admits to playing hard to get which apparently paid off. A year later, they were married and last May they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. The Brotherhoods have three children, two sons and a daughter. David lives in Ocala; Darlene lives in Connecticut and Douglas lives in California. They have six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In their early years of married life, Sandra stayed home with her children until they were of school age. She then took work with the Mine Safety Administration testing the effectiveness of gas masks. She also worked taking care of a special education student. Among her other jobs, she was a quality control technician for Norelco Corp. and a plant facility technician. Later she enrolled in Groton College and trained in dining services. She admits to not liking to cook to this day but she does it and according to all reports, she does it very well. Bill obtained a job with a fence construction firm in Hartford, Connecticut. Commuting between Connecticut and Rhode Island was too much so the couple moved to Niantic. Bill later began his career working for General Dynamics. For the better part of his last fifteen years with the company Bill worked on a tug boat. When the company got out of the boat business, Bill retired. Eight years ago, the two of them moved to Cherrywood. At the time, both Bills mother and Sandras mom said, Not without us. So shortly after they moved, both of their moms moved in with them. Since the mothers had known each other even longer than Bill and Sandra, the two got along famously. Last year Sandras mom passed away but Marie, Bills mom, still resides with the couple. Sandras experience as a care giver and her compassionate heart has served her well in these times. For their 50th wedding anniversary, Sandra and Bills kids gave them a surprise party. It lasted two days and was highlighted by a renewal of wedding vows ceremony at Queen of Peace Catholic Church. The following August, they took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate. In spite of her many obligations, Sandra is very active in the community. She serves on our CERT Team; is active in the Veterans Club; is a member of the Feathered Friends organization (formerly the Red Hat Society) and supports many of the activities here in the community. You have seen Bill and Sandra at the 100 Days of Summer events; the Fun and Sun games; Bocce Ball; Oktoberfest; the Garden Club, and many other special times. With quick and ready smiles that belie some of the hardships that they have and are facing, with a quiet courage and loving hearts, Sandra and Bill are a joy to be around. With a cheerful outlook on life and a sincere affection for all, these two enjoy socializing with their many friends in Cherrywood and most of all, life itself.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com In the 19th century and the first 50 years of the 20th, many poorly paid, unmarried teachers, particularly females, lived together out of financial necessity. Whether their living arrangements were anything other than shared expenses was seldom questioned. Of course there were village busy biddies who would speculate in social circles about teachers living together, without any factual information on which to base whispered suspicions about sexuality. Gossipers feed on subjects which are none of their business. Opposite sex living together was less tolerated. Shared living by opposite-sex teachers would have resulted in the discharge of both participants, even if their arrangement were chaste. Today opposite-sex living arrangements are more common than matrimony (see 2010 U.S. Census). Here in the 21st century there is a political impetus to establish spousal rights for same-sex partners, by legalizing the couplings and calling them marriages. When he first ran for national office President Obama said I am not willing to have the states deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex. More recently Mr. Obama said his opinion has evolved. He endorsed same-sex marriage. We think Mr. Obamas earlier position civil unions was correct and in keeping with rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Since aboriginal times, sexual selection has meant the choice made by a man or woman of a member of the opposite sex. In civilized western culture the legal definition of marriage has been affirmed in many cases, over centuries: A civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, to discharge for each other and for the community the duties legally incumbent on those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex. In other words, fidelity and procreation of the human species. Authority to perform marriages is granted by states to judges, court clerks, justices of the peace, and clergy members, who must report marriages performed to the office which issued the license. Catholic marriages, Jewish marriages, Orthodox marriages, Muslim marriages, and other rituals by which a couple may choose to declare the essence of their mutual commitment, are ceremonies which are not essential to establishing a legal marriage. The issue of legalizing samesex couplings isnt going away. Thirty-one states have banned same-sex marriage. Four others will consider the subject in the fall elections. We have no argument with assuring the benefits of our constitution to same-sex couples, but under some description other than marriage. That term was defined long before Adam and Eve. So-called same-sex marriage is legal in six states. which were too lazy, inept, or intimidated to give the couplings a distinguishing name such as linkage, joynage, unionage, partnerage, mergerage, symphisage (growing together), or just plain civil union. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 1, 2012 My first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season starts today, June 1. Tropical storms Alberto and Beryl jumped the gun by being the first named storm in May. We didnt have too much to worry about from them, although we got needed rain from Beryl, and lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

Tropical storm Alberto, which swirled off the East Coast a couple of weeks ago, and Tropical storm Beryl, which drenched us over the weekend, were early reminders that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June 1 and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. The forecast includes 12 named tropical storms, five named hurricanes and two major hurricanes. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-may-care types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a hohum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bank just in time for the holidays.

Amazingly, this agile and spritely gentleman walked the entire five-mile course in just one hour and 45 minutes. Even just as amazing was his collection of $1,850 to be used to help prevent and correct birth defects. This is particularly true in these difficult economic times when most of his donations were very small because many people are having financial issues that consume most of their cash. Curry asked me if I would write a follow-up to my previous article as a thank you to all the many people who contributed or Curry Andrews: Thank you for helping my babies PLEASESEEANDREWS, PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A heads-up alert to all free-spirited Ewes and Rams: Be wary of a deal that could result in compromising your independence. Check every detail before making a commitment. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New facts emerge that help put an irksome workplace situation in perspective. Meanwhile, pay more attention to a family member who needs your wisdom and strength. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A slight setback in plans is nothing to worry about. Use this delay to deal with a number of matters you might have ignored for too long. Expect news from someone in your past. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre entering a period of stability. Use it to straighten out any outstanding problems related to a very personal situation. Also, pay closer attention to financial matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being a social Lion, you might well benefit from staying out of the spotlight for a while. You need time to reflect on some upcoming decisions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A difficult family situation improves, thanks to your timely intervention. You can now start to focus more of your attention on preparing for a possible career change. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An on-the-job change works to your benefit by offering new opportunities. Its up to you to check them out. Meanwhile, a stalled romantic situation starts up again. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That flare-up of Scorpian temperament cools down, leaving you more receptive to suggestions about changes that might need to be made in your personal life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unusual period of indecisiveness is a mite frustrating. But things soon clear up, allowing the sage Sagittarian to make those wise pronouncements again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel that you know best, but its not a good idea at this time to try to force your opinions on others. Best advice: Inspire change by example, not by intimidation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Some setbacks could affect your plans to fortify your financial situation. But things start moving again by early next week. Meanwhile, enjoy your resurgent social life. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Show that often-hidden steely spine of yours as you once again stand up to an emotional bully. Youve got the strength to do it, especially as friends rally to your side.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The SPCA does not have regular meetings during the summer but work continues. We still provide bags of pet food for the Meals On Wheels pet food program. We are constantly in need of more dog and cat food to fill the bags for almost 100 pets. You can help by donating bags of dry food. You can place them in a container below the bulletin board in Winn Dixie or by calling 352-362-0985 and well make arrangements to pick it up. We also continue to foster and place dogs and cats that need new homes. We desperately need more volunteers to be fosters. You need not be a member of SPCA to apply. Please call 352-3620985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. We currently have two mature cats and several kittens that need homes. Pumpkin and Kitten have been in their foster home for eight months and really need to find their forever home. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to find out more and schedule a meeting. We are trying to find a home for an older dog whos mom just passed away. Buffy is a sweet 9 year old Shih Tzu. She follows you around and loves to be with you. Her main problem is that shes deaf, but dogs easily compensate for that by watching you closely. She doesnt require long walks so will be great for a senior. Call 352362-0985 to see if shes still available. Cute little dogs like Buffy are usually easy to place but larger dogs are not so lucky. The Marion County Animal center has several dogs that have been there for over a year. These are loving dogs that just need the right home. The two we are highlighting are both pit bull mixes. That is a plus, not a minus. Mixed breed dogs are healthier and dont have the negative traits associated with purebreds. Artie (ID A040037) is an energetic dog who needs walking and/or play time. If you are a runner, you need a dog like Artie to run with you. He is good with other dogs but gets excited and jumps when greeting people. Hes a quick learner so that can be controlled with some positive training. Ty (ID A047020) is more mellow than Artie. He is a friendly dog that will win you over with his goofy smile. Both dogs are at 5 years old, between 45-50 pounds, and with a little time and training will make a perfect pet for the right family. Please go by the Animal Center on Baseline Road to check out these great pets. Since June is the start of Hurricane Season, the Animal Center has published a bulletin on disaster preparedness for your pets. You can get one online at their website: marioncountyfl.org/Animalcenter. It lists the things you will need to stock up on and set aside for an emergency situation. Some of these items are obvious, such as food, toys, bedding, litter and/or doggie poop bags, but some things you may not have thought of. These items include the animals vet records, proof of rabies vaccination, an ID tag and a photo, in case he gets separated from you. A microchip is invaluable when this happens. You can get one for your pet cheaply at Work continues at SPCA PAWS AND CLAWS M DMaria Devine This is Artie.

Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six times a year (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures of the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Car pooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join.Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, May 22, we played the Criers Tournament but we did not see anyone crying because after we played we were able to decrease the score of our worst hole on both the front and the back sides to what would have been par on that hole. It definitely would be nice to do that every week, but we cannot. The winners were: First flight 1st place, JT LeMasters, 2nd place, Pat Blackburn, 3rd place, Jan Tennant; Second flight 1st place, Salita Timmermeyer, 2nd place tie, Roseann Lavacca, Sylvia Zappia and Patty Dougherty; Third flight 1st place tie, Donna Gwin, Ginger Drake and Arlene Zimmerman. Joan OBrien was closest to the pin.Royal Oaks Lady Niners On May 24 we played a scramble. The team that came in 1st. was Phyllis Oldfield, Sam Timmermeyer, Joyce Madill and Ginger Drake. The team that came in 2nd. was Bette Johnson, Sally Crass and Diana Schmidt. Closest to pin #16 was Sally Crass and Phyllis Oldfield had a chip in on #18. We all went in for our year end meeting and welcomed a new member Gloria Swigart. Then we all went into the dining room and had a great lunch. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe mens golf group played its usual game of three best net on Friday, May 25. Once again we were blessed with warm weather and just enough breeze to keep the bugs off. The winners with a score of 198 were Hal Loomis, Tom Ducz, Jan Flickinger, and Duke Slayton. Second with a 199 were Dick Blackburn, George Gariepy, Mike Madill, and John Foutty. Third with a 202 were Ron Catapano, Bill Staiger, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Closest to the pin were Tom Ducz, Ron Catapano, John ONeill, and John Foutty.

the Animal Center or at your vets office. An extra leash is good but a strong carrier or cage will provide a safe and secure place for your pet if he has to be kept in a separate area. Plan in advance and know what you will do if you have to evacuate. Some hotels allow pets but not all. Vangard High School is the only local shelter that allows pets but they are housed in a separate building. There are other things to consider about providing for your pet(s) during a disaster and keeping them safe. This is just a reminder that your pet is part of your family and needs to be included in your emergency planning. Have a safe summer! If you want to know more about the SPCA or need to reach us for help with an animal, please call 352-3620985.

2012, the continuation of the overall conditions associated with the Atlantic high-activity era that began in 1995, in addition to nearaverage sea surface temperatures across much of the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, known as the Main Development Region. Two factors now in place that can limit storm development, if they persist, are: strong wind shear, which is hostile to hurricane formation in the Main Development Region, and cooler sea surface temperatures in the far eastern Atlantic. Another potentially competing climate factor would be El Nio if it develops by late summer to early fall. In that case, conditions could be less conducive for hurricane formation and intensification during the peak months (August-October) of the season, possibly shifting the activity toward the lower end of the predicted range, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. In a more immediate example of research supporting hurricane forecasting, NOAA this season is introducing enhancements to two of the computer models available to hurricane forecasters the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) models. The HWRF model has been upgraded with a higher resolution and improved atmospheric physics. This latest version has demonstrated a 20 to 25 percent improvement in track forecasts and a 15 percent improvement in intensity forecasts relative to the previous version while also showing improvement in the representation of storm structure and size. Improvements to the GFDL model for 2012 include physics upgrades that are expected to reduce or eliminate a high bias in the model's intensity forecasts. The seasonal outlook does not predict how many storms will hit land. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts are provided by NOAAs National Hurricane Center, which continuously monitors the tropics for storm development and tracking throughout the season using an array of tools including satellites, advance computer modeling, hurricane hunter aircraft, and landand ocean-based observations sources such as radars and buoys.

A NY IT EM PRICEDUNDER $1 00M A XIMUM 10 W ORDS RUNS F OR 2 WEEKSFREE TOLL FREE1-8 7 7-6 7 6-1 4 0 3 DESTINY OF THE REPUBLIC By Candace MillardThis well-told account of the election and subsequent assassination of our 20th president James Garfield is more of an experience than just a good read. It paints a portrait of a divided America in 1880 when at the Republican convention Garfield, over his strenuous protests, is nominated on the 33rd ballot. Author Millard admits that it wasnt Garfield himself that impelled her to write the book but rather what she learned in her research about Alexander Graham Bells relationship to Garfield. After the assassination attempt Bell abandoned everything he was working on to make his top priority developing an induction balance a form of metal detector to locate the bullet in the presidents body. To the author this spoke volumes about Bells respect and admiration for Garfield. Just four months into his presidency, Garfield, on July 2, 1881, was awaiting a train to the seaside resort in New Jersey to join his ailing wife Lucretia. At the D.C. station a frustrated office seeker with a long history of mental problems fired one shot at the president. Left alone Garfield would almost certainly have survived. But once Dr. Willard Bliss applied his archaic treatments, the president was a doomed man. Although acquainted with Listers theory that antiseptics saved lives, Bliss found washing hands and sterilizing instruments a waste of time. Consequently, he repeatedly inserted his dirty finger and germ-laden probes into Garfields wound, causing infections that burrowed tunnels of pus throughout his body. Compounding this medical malpractice were the deplorable conditions of the White House then a vermin-ridden structure with broken sewage pipes. From July until his death in September Garfield endured torture at the hands of his caregivers without complaint. No one can be sure what kind of president he might have become but his character and experience seemed promising. The last president to be born in a log cabin, Garfields early life was one of abject poverty. Rising above it he became a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a reformer who fought for black rights and liberty. On his death bed, in agony, he still did not rage against the dying light but rather expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of sympathy and concern the American people showed BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington The killing of President Garfield him: How kind and thoughtful! What a generous people! From the gallows his deranged assassin made a valid point in saying that he only shot the president. The doctors killed him.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenThe Fellowship Hall at Joy Lutheran Church was very full and lively at the Bunco Party on Saturday, May 19. More than 50 people (men and women) attended this event for the purpose of raising money to purchase shoes for Marion County School children who are homeless. The funds raised through a free-will offering will be supplemented 50 cents on the dollar up to a maximum of $500 from the Marion County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. These monies will combine with the money raised at the April 28 Ice Cream Social and will generate approximately $1500 for the purchase of the shoes. It was obvious from the chatter and laughter among these 50 plus people that they were there not only for charity but also to have a good time. If you have never been to a Bunco party (which was my first time) it is a hubbub of noise, social interaction and lots of movement. There were 13 tables with four players at each table. One table was the Head table that rings the bell to signal the start and end of a round. Each time a round is finished the players move to another table. Round one starts when each player rolls the 3 dice to get as many ones as possible. The round ends when the Head table scores 21 points or gets a Bunco which is three of a kind of the number one. The players move to another table with a new partner and the game continues to the next number two, then on up to six. One person at each table keeps the score for the teams and each player has their own score card on which their wins of either a game or a Bunco are tallied. This is just a few of the rules of the game, there are many more to be learned but maybe at the next Bunco encounter. Prizes are awarded either in the form of cash that the participants contribute or, in this case, in the form of white elephant items that the participants donated. A special gift is given to the player with the top score and one for the player with the lowest score. Everyone will most likely get a gift since there were many donated gifts and the individual name tags had numbers on them which will direct who gets to choose the next gift from the white elephant items. According to the World Bunco Association website, Bunco dates back to the late 1800s when it was introduced into San Francisco during the Gold Rush period. Prior to WWI, Bunco achieved permanent placement as a traditional family or parlor game promoting social interaction. The game has seen resurgence in popularity in the United States, with a reported 27 million people playing regularly in 2006. Bunco is a social dice game involving 100 percent luck, requiring little decision making skill with simple scoring and set of rules. So if you can roll 3 dice and count to six you can play Bunco. Bunco party at Joy Lutheran Above, some winners waiting to have their cards punched. Below, time for a break with a good spread of food. The a cappella doo-wop quartet Blend will perform their concert Forever Doo Wop A Tribute to the s and s on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ocala Civic Theatre. Formed in 2005, Blend is a touring group from Illinois. Evan Boswell, John Estes, Eric Rudd, and Andrew Smith are the four members who bring the songs to life. Though the music is from several generations before their time, they love doo wop, and they clearly love what they do. Blend has opened for a variety of doo wop, country, and gospel acts, including The Platters, Bill Haleys Comets, The Van-Dells, The Drifters, Aaron Tippin, Confederate Railroad, Ivan Parker, and Greater Vision. In 2008 they appeared as special guests at The Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater in Branson, Missouri. Performing music made popular by The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, The Del-Vikings, Elvis Presley, The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Orbison, Otis Redding, The Shirelles, The Coasters, and Ritchie Valens, among many others, Blend has a diverse repertoire. Their concert program features classic songs like Stand By Me, Sittin On the Dock of the Bay, Blue Moon, My Girl, Only the Lonely, At the Hop, Come Go With Me, Dont Be Cruel, Duke of Earl, Get a Job, Goodnight, Sweetheart, In the Still of the Night, Little Bitty Pretty One, Barbara Ann, Book of Love, Runaround Sue, Surfer Girl, Teenager In Love, and This Magic Moment and many more! Paying homage to their Southern gospel heritage, Blend also performs a few hymns and songs such as Beulah Land, Unclouded Day, Amazing Grace, and Ill Fly Away in each concert. Blend is known for having fun at their concerts and making sure the audience does, too. They frequently leave the stage and mingle with the audience, making them feel like theyre part of the show. Before long, the audience is singing along. If you lived through it, Blend will take you back to a time of bobbysoxers, poodle skirts, and blue suede shoes. If not, Blend will make you fall in love with the era and its music either for the first time or all over again!

Bingo will resume Wednesday, Sept. 5. Doors open at 5 p.m. with bingo play starting at 7 p.m. A trailer stolen from the Airport Industrial Park was located at a home on Northeast 14th Avenue in Ocala, and that resulted in the re-arrest of Andrew James Weinreich, 21, on charges of grand theft auto. He had been arrested previously for the theft of items from various Walmart stores in the area, including sets of tires. Several of these items were discovered in the trailer when it was opened. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, photos taken from the theft of the trailer were identified as Weinreich, and deputies went to his home. It was a duplex with a shared backyard, and deputies were able to see what was in the yard. After obtaining a search warrant, they went to the home, where Weinreich was not located. They discovered he had been dropped off at a truck stop at County Road 326 and Interstate 75, and notified patrol officers in that area, who had no trouble locating the suspect and bringing him to the home. Weinreichs father was there and had been served with the search warrant. Weinreich opened the trailer for deputies, and it contained tires and various other materials believed to be stolen. Other trailers were on the property and couldnt be identified, but they were also towed as Ocala Police and Marion County deputies try to locate the owners. Weinreich was booked into the jail for the third time in May, and was held without bond because of the previous arrests. His next court date is arraignment on June 26.

Conditions in the atmosphere and the ocean favor a near-normal hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin this season, NOAA announced May 24 from Miami at its Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, and home to the Hurricane Research Division. This week is national Hurricane Preparedness Week. For the entire six-month season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center says theres a 70 percent chance of nine to 15 named storms (with top winds of 39 mph or higher), of which four to eight will strengthen to a hurricane (with top winds of 74 mph or higher) and of those one to three will become major hurricanes (with top winds of 111 mph or higher, ranking Category 3, 4 or 5). Based on the period 1981-2010, an average season produces 12 named storms with six hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

They discovered he had been dropped off at a truck stop at County Road 326 and Interstate 75, and notified patrol officers in that area, who had no trouble locating the suspect and bringing him to the home. Weinreichs father was there and had been served with the search warrant. Weinreich opened the trailer for deputies, and it contained tires and various other materials believed to be stolen. Other trailers were on the property and couldnt be identified, but they were also towed as Ocala Police and Marion County deputies try to locate the owners. Weinreich was booked into the jail for the third time in May, and was held without bond because of the previous arrests. His next court date is arraignment on June 26.

Diana Bennett, a recent graduate of the Air Force Academy, and a graduate of Forest High School, spoke to the crowd. David Reeves was the master of ceremonies. The traditional POW-MIA table was on display. This row of flags leads into Highland Memorial Park, where a ceremony was held although the weather was less than perfect. Conditions in the atmosphere and the ocean favor a near-normal hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin this season, NOAA announced May 24 from Miami at its Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, and home to the Hurricane Research Division. This week is national Hurricane Preparedness Week. For the entire six-month season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center says theres a 70 percent chance of nine to 15 named storms (with top winds of 39 mph or higher), of which four to eight will strengthen to a hurricane (with top winds of 74 mph or higher) and of those one to three will become major hurricanes (with top winds of 111 mph or higher, ranking Category 3, 4 or 5). Based on the period 1981-2010, an average season produces 12 named storms with six hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen The Fellowship Hall at Joy Lutheran Church was very full and lively at the Bunco Party on Saturday, May 19. More than 50 people (men and women) attended this event for the purpose of raising money to purchase shoes for Marion County School children who are homeless. The funds raised through a free-will offering will be supplemented 50 cents on the dollar up to a maximum of $500 from the Marion County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. These monies will combine with the money raised at the April 28 Ice Cream Social and will generate approximately $1500 for the purchase of the shoes. It was obvious from the chatter and laughter among these 50 plus people that they were there not only for charity but also to have a good time. If you have never been to a Bunco party (which was my first time) it is a hubbub of noise, social interaction and lots of movement. There were 13 tables with four players at each table. One table was the Head table that rings the bell to signal the start and end of a round. Each time a round is finished the players move to another table. Round one starts when each player rolls the 3 dice to get as many ones as possible. The round ends when the Head table scores 21 points or gets a Bunco which is three of a kind of the number one. The players move to another table with a new partner and the game continues to the next number two, then on up to six. One person at each table keeps the score for the teams and each player has their own score card on which their wins of either a game or a Bunco are tallied. This is just a few of the rules of the game, there are many more to be learned but maybe at the next Bunco encounter. Prizes are awarded either in the form of cash that the participants contribute or, in this case, in the form of white elephant items that the participants donated. A special gift is given to the player with the top score and one for the player with the lowest score. Everyone will most likely get a gift since there were many donated gifts and the individual name tags had numbers on them which will direct who gets to choose the next gift from the white elephant items. According to the World Bunco Association website, Bunco dates back to the late 1800s when it was introduced into San Francisco during the Gold Rush period. Prior to WWI, Bunco achieved permanent placement as a traditional family or parlor game promoting social interaction. The game has seen resurgence in popularity in the United States, with a reported 27 million people playing regularly in 2006. Bunco is a social dice game involving 100 percent luck, requiring little decision making skill with simple scoring and set of rules. So if you can roll 3 dice and count to six you can play Bunco.

The a cappella doo-wop quartet Blend will perform their concert Forever Doo Wop A Tribute to the s and s on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ocala Civic Theatre. Formed in 2005, Blend is a touring group from Illinois. Evan Boswell, John Estes, Eric Rudd, and Andrew Smith are the four members who bring the songs to life. Though the music is from several generations before their time, they love doo wop, and they clearly love what they do. Blend has opened for a variety of doo wop, country, and gospel acts, including The Platters, Bill Haleys Comets, The Van-Dells, The Drifters, Aaron Tippin, Confederate Railroad, Ivan Parker, and Greater Vision. In 2008 they appeared as special guests at The Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater in Branson, Missouri. Performing music made popular by The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, The Del-Vikings, Elvis Presley, The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Orbison, Otis Redding, The Shirelles, The Coasters, and Ritchie Valens, among many others, Blend has a diverse repertoire. Their concert program features classic songs like Stand By Me, Sittin On the Dock of the Bay, Blue Moon, My Girl, Only the Lonely, At the Hop, Come Go With Me, Dont Be Cruel, Duke of Earl, Get a Job, Goodnight, Sweetheart, In the Still of the Night, Little Bitty Pretty One, Barbara Ann, Book of Love, Runaround Sue, Surfer Girl, Teenager In Love, and This Magic Moment and many more! Paying homage to their Southern gospel heritage, Blend also performs a few hymns and songs such as Beulah Land, Unclouded Day, Amazing Grace, and Ill Fly Away in each concert. Blend is known for having fun at their concerts and making sure the audience does, too. They frequently leave the stage and mingle with the audience, making them feel like theyre part of the show. Before long, the audience is singing along. If you lived through it, Blend will take you back to a time of bobbysoxers, poodle skirts, and blue suede shoes. If not, Blend will make you fall in love with the era and its music either for the first time or all over again!

2012, the continuation of the overall conditions associated with the Atlantic high-activity era that began in 1995, in addition to nearaverage sea surface temperatures across much of the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, known as the Main Development Region. Two factors now in place that can limit storm development, if they persist, are: strong wind shear, which is hostile to hurricane formation in the Main Development Region, and cooler sea surface temperatures in the far eastern Atlantic. Another potentially competing climate factor would be El Nio if it develops by late summer to early fall. In that case, conditions could be less conducive for hurricane formation and intensification during the peak months (August-October) of the season, possibly shifting the activity toward the lower end of the predicted range, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. In a more immediate example of research supporting hurricane forecasting, NOAA this season is introducing enhancements to two of the computer models available to hurricane forecasters the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) models. The HWRF model has been upgraded with a higher resolution and improved atmospheric physics. This latest version has demonstrated a 20 to 25 percent improvement in track forecasts and a 15 percent improvement in intensity forecasts relative to the previous version while also showing improvement in the representation of storm structure and size. Improvements to the GFDL model for 2012 include physics upgrades that are expected to reduce or eliminate a high bias in the model's intensity forecasts. The seasonal outlook does not predict how many storms will hit land. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts are provided by NOAAs National Hurricane Center, which continuously monitors the tropics for storm development and tracking throughout the season using an array of tools including satellites, advance computer modeling, hurricane hunter aircraft, and landand ocean-based observations sources such as radars and buoys.

It paints a portrait of a divided America in 1880 when at the Republican convention Garfield, over his strenuous protests, is nominated on the 33rd ballot. Author Millard admits that it wasnt Garfield himself that impelled her to write the book but rather what she learned in her research about Alexander Graham Bells relationship to Garfield. After the assassination attempt Bell abandoned everything he was working on to make his top priority developing an induction balance a form of metal detector to locate the bullet in the presidents body. To the author this spoke volumes about Bells respect and admiration for Garfield. Just four months into his presidency, Garfield, on July 2, 1881, was awaiting a train to the seaside resort in New Jersey to join his ailing wife Lucretia. At the D.C. station a frustrated office seeker with a long history of mental problems fired one shot at the president. Left alone Garfield would almost certainly have survived. But once Dr. Willard Bliss applied his archaic treatments, the president was a doomed man. Although acquainted with Listers theory that antiseptics saved lives, Bliss found washing hands and sterilizing instruments a waste of time. Consequently, he repeatedly inserted his dirty finger and germ-laden probes into Garfields wound, causing infections that burrowed tunnels of pus throughout his body. Compounding this medical malpractice were the deplorable conditions of the White House then a vermin-ridden structure with broken sewage pipes. From July until his death in September Garfield endured torture at the hands of his caregivers without complaint. No one can be sure what kind of president he might have become but his character and experience seemed promising. The last president to be born in a log cabin, Garfields early life was one of abject poverty. Rising above it he became a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a reformer who fought for black rights and liberty. On his death bed, in agony, he still did not rage against the dying light but rather expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of sympathy and concern the American people showed B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington The killing of President Garfield him: How kind and thoughtful! What a generous people! From the gallows his deranged assassin made a valid point in saying that he only shot the president. The doctors killed him.

You could have a huge impact by working with individuals and giving them the tools they need to not wind up back in the jail again. Meetings are once a week, typically 1 hour in duration.

the Animal Center or at your vets office. An extra leash is good but a strong carrier or cage will provide a safe and secure place for your pet if he has to be kept in a separate area. Plan in advance and know what you will do if you have to evacuate. Some hotels allow pets but not all. Vangard High School is the only local shelter that allows pets but they are housed in a separate building. There are other things to consider about providing for your pet(s) during a disaster and keeping them safe. This is just a reminder that your pet is part of your family and needs to be included in your emergency planning. Have a safe summer! If you want to know more about the SPCA or need to reach us for help with an animal, please call 352-3620985.

Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six times a year (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures of the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Car pooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, May 22, we played the Criers Tournament but we did not see anyone crying because after we played we were able to decrease the score of our worst hole on both the front and the back sides to what would have been par on that hole. It definitely would be nice to do that every week, but we cannot. The winners were: First flight 1st place, JT LeMasters, 2nd place, Pat Blackburn, 3rd place, Jan Tennant; Second flight 1st place, Salita Timmermeyer, 2nd place tie, Roseann Lavacca, Sylvia Zappia and Patty Dougherty; Third flight 1st place tie, Donna Gwin, Ginger Drake and Arlene Zimmerman.

The team that came in 2nd. was Bette Johnson, Sally Crass and Diana Schmidt. Closest to pin #16 was Sally Crass and Phyllis Oldfield had a chip in on #18. We all went in for our year end meeting and welcomed a new member Gloria Swigart. Then we all went into the dining room and had a great lunch. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe mens golf group played its usual game of three best net on Friday, May 25. Once again we were blessed with warm weather and just enough breeze to keep the bugs off. The winners with a score of 198 were Hal Loomis, Tom Ducz, Jan Flickinger, and Duke Slayton. Second with a 199 were Dick Blackburn, George Gariepy, Mike Madill, and John Foutty. Third with a 202 were Ron Catapano, Bill Staiger, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Closest to the pin were Tom Ducz, Ron Catapano, John ONeill, and John Foutty.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he SPCA does not have regular meetings during the summer but work continues. We still provide bags of pet food for the Meals On Wheels pet food program. We are constantly in need of more dog and cat food to fill the bags for almost 100 pets. You can help by donating bags of dry food. You can place them in a container below the bulletin board in Winn Dixie or by calling 352-362-0985 and well make arrangements to pick it up. We also continue to foster and place dogs and cats that need new homes. We desperately need more volunteers to be fosters. You need not be a member of SPCA to apply. Please call 352-3620985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. We currently have two mature cats and several kittens that need homes. Pumpkin and Kitten have been in their foster home for eight months and really need to find their forever home. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to find out more and schedule a meeting. We are trying to find a home for an older dog whos mom just passed away. Buffy is a sweet 9 year old Shih Tzu. She follows you around and loves to be with you. Her main problem is that shes deaf, but dogs easily compensate for that by watching you closely. She doesnt require long walks so will be great for a senior. Call 352362-0985 to see if shes still available. Cute little dogs like Buffy are usually easy to place but larger dogs are not so lucky. The Marion County Animal center has several dogs that have been there for over a year. These are loving dogs that just need the right home. The two we are highlighting are both pit bull mixes. That is a plus, not a minus. Mixed breed dogs are healthier and dont have the negative traits associated with purebreds. Artie (ID A040037) is an energetic dog who needs walking and/or play time. If you are a runner, you need a dog like Artie to run with you. He is good with other dogs but gets excited and jumps when greeting people. Hes a quick learner so that can be controlled with some positive training. Ty (ID A047020) is more mellow than Artie. He is a friendly dog that will win you over with his goofy smile. Both dogs are at 5 years old, between 45-50 pounds, and with a little time and training will make a perfect pet for the right family. Please go by the Animal Center on Baseline Road to check out these great pets. Since June is the start of Hurricane Season, the Animal Center has published a bulletin on disaster preparedness for your pets. You can get one online at their website: marioncountyfl.org/Animalcenter. It lists the things you will need to stock up on and set aside for an emergency situation. Some of these items are obvious, such as food, toys, bedding, litter and/or doggie poop bags, but some things you may not have thought of. These items include the animals vet records, proof of rabies vaccination, an ID tag and a photo, in case he gets separated from you. A microchip is invaluable when this happens. You can get one for your pet cheaply at Work continues at SPCA P AWS AND CLAWS M D Maria Devine This is Artie.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com I n the 19th century and the first 50 years of the 20th, many poorly paid, unmarried teachers, particularly females, lived together out of financial necessity. Whether their living arrangements were anything other than shared expenses was seldom questioned. Of course there were village busy biddies who would speculate in social circles about teachers living together, without any factual information on which to base whispered suspicions about sexuality. Gossipers feed on subjects which are none of their business. Opposite sex living together was less tolerated. Shared living by opposite-sex teachers would have resulted in the discharge of both participants, even if their arrangement were chaste. Today opposite-sex living arrangements are more common than matrimony (see 2010 U.S. Census). Here in the 21st century there is a political impetus to establish spousal rights for same-sex partners, by legalizing the couplings and calling them marriages. When he first ran for national office President Obama said I am not willing to have the states deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex. More recently Mr. Obama said his opinion has evolved. He endorsed same-sex marriage. We think Mr. Obamas earlier position civil unions was correct and in keeping with rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Since aboriginal times, sexual selection has meant the choice made by a man or woman of a member of the opposite sex. In civilized western culture the legal definition of marriage has been affirmed in many cases, over centuries: A civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, to discharge for each other and for the community the duties legally incumbent on those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex. In other words, fidelity and procreation of the human species. Authority to perform marriages is granted by states to judges, court clerks, justices of the peace, and clergy members, who must report marriages performed to the office which issued the license. Catholic marriages, Jewish marriages, Orthodox marriages, Muslim marriages, and other rituals by which a couple may choose to declare the essence of their mutual commitment, are ceremonies which are not essential to establishing a legal marriage. The issue of legalizing samesex couplings isnt going away. Thirty-one states have banned same-sex marriage. Four others will consider the subject in the fall elections. We have no argument with assuring the benefits of our constitution to same-sex couples, but under some description other than marriage. That term was defined long before Adam and Eve. So-called same-sex marriage is legal in six states. which were too lazy, inept, or intimidated to give the couplings a distinguishing name such as linkage, joynage, unionage, partnerage, mergerage, symphisage (growing together), or just plain civil union. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 M y first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season starts today, June 1. Tropical storms Alberto and Beryl jumped the gun by being the first named storm in May. We didnt have too much to worry about from them, although we got needed rain from Beryl, and lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

T ropical storm Alberto, which swirled off the East Coast a couple of weeks ago, and Tropical storm Beryl, which drenched us over the weekend, were early reminders that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June 1 and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. The forecast includes 12 named tropical storms, five named hurricanes and two major hurricanes. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-may-care types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a hohum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bank just in time for the holidays.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont blow off the hurricane season You always recall your first hurricane Jim Flynn Columnist Equal protection by any other name is the same Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED GUEST COMMENTARY BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the Citizen A gain this year, for the twentieth year in a row, my wonderful 92 year old friend who is my neighbor here in Fairfield Village worked the entire month of April collecting donations for the March for Babies, formerly called the March of Dimes, which was held this year on Saturday, April 28. Amazingly, this agile and spritely gentleman walked the entire five-mile course in just one hour and 45 minutes. Even just as amazing was his collection of $1,850 to be used to help prevent and correct birth defects. This is particularly true in these difficult economic times when most of his donations were very small because many people are having financial issues that consume most of their cash. Curry asked me if I would write a follow-up to my previous article as a thank you to all the many people who contributed or Curry Andrews: Thank you for helping my babies PLEASESEEANDREWS PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A heads-up alert to all free-spirited Ewes and Rams: Be wary of a deal that could result in compromising your independence. Check every detail before making a commitment. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New facts emerge that help put an irksome workplace situation in perspective. Meanwhile, pay more attention to a family member who needs your wisdom and strength. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A slight setback in plans is nothing to worry about. Use this delay to deal with a number of matters you might have ignored for too long. Expect news from someone in your past. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre entering a period of stability. Use it to straighten out any outstanding problems related to a very personal situation. Also, pay closer attention to financial matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being a social Lion, you might well benefit from staying out of the spotlight for a while. You need time to reflect on some upcoming decisions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A difficult family situation improves, thanks to your timely intervention. You can now start to focus more of your attention on preparing for a possible career change. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An on-the-job change works to your benefit by offering new opportunities. Its up to you to check them out. Meanwhile, a stalled romantic situation starts up again. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That flare-up of Scorpian temperament cools down, leaving you more receptive to suggestions about changes that might need to be made in your personal life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unusual period of indecisiveness is a mite frustrating. But things soon clear up, allowing the sage Sagittarian to make those wise pronouncements again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel that you know best, but its not a good idea at this time to try to force your opinions on others. Best advice: Inspire change by example, not by intimidation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Some setbacks could affect your plans to fortify your financial situation. But things start moving again by early next week. Meanwhile, enjoy your resurgent social life. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Show that often-hidden steely spine of yours as you once again stand up to an emotional bully. Youve got the strength to do it, especially as friends rally to your side.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com helped in any way. This project is very dear to Currys heart, which, by the way was the recipient of a new valve a couple of years ago. That feat is within itself most remarkable because people of Currys mature age are not usually considered candidates for heart surgery at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Gainesville. However, because of Currys walking regimen and healthy lifestyle, he was able to have the surgery and has made remarkable progress since then. How many of us know someone of Currys years to be able to work a regular job which he does joyfully at the Publix in Paddock Shopping Center? Many of Ocalas residents know Curry and love his winning smile and jovial banter as he helps them with their groceries on a regular basis. The other employees love working with Curry too, but one (who asked not to be identified) told me that Curry can outdo me on a regular basis and added and I am a whole lot younger so I dont have any excuse. As I close this special Thank You from Curry Andrews, I would like to add my own Thank you! to this generous, loving, unique man who works so hard to help others. I feel blessed to know him and even more blessed to be his friend. I love you, Curry, and so do lots and lots of other people and little babies who will not know you but will live and be healthy because of the walking and working you have done for them. You, sir, are one of the special breed of men and women about whom we refer when we speak of The Greatest Generation. Priscilla Geissal is a columnist for the West Marion Messenger. ANDREWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Our water supplyHow can a state that is surrounded by water become a state that cant supply its residents with clean drinking water? We have been told that there is an unlimited supply of fresh water coming from the aquifer that has supplied Silver Springs for the last several hundred years. Drought and over pumping has played its part in drying up our most precious resource of an unlimited supply of the purest drinking water in America. I feel that the worst assault on our drinking water is yet to come through our elected politicians. These appointed and elected representatives who are in charge of this once valuable and precious resource of drinking water may have already made their decision to give a few land owners the rest of the states drinking water. I believe that the importance of salvaging whats left of the water that flows from our aquifers should be left to the voting public and put on the ballot for this falls election. Let the people of our state make this all important decision. I am afraid that the decision has already been made to sell our water to the highest bidder (and that isnt us) that has purchased the votes with the approval of our pro business politicians in Tallahassee. Who will admit that they are responsible for the low water levels in our lakes and rivers? Who will admit that our boat docks only lead to empty dust bowls that were once a great place to sit and splash the water with your feet or maybe do a little swimming or fishing? Are you part of the population that can only water your lawn once a week while someone else can drill over 130 new wells into the aquifer for a new cattle ranch that will win approval by our state legislators who own the votes of our state water board? These same people have allowed well water and spring water to be bottled and sold back to us with the profits going to a few business owners. Our states water supply should be saved by the voting public and not left to the politicians to decide. Jerry Segovis OTOW Fix governmentOccupy Wall Street and The Tea Party agree the government is broken, and so is Wall Street. They are both in need of repair. How, is the question? While these groups agree on issues, they disagree on solutions, and tactics. The Tea Party wants peaceful tactics and resolution. Through the ballot, and the repeal of offending laws, The Federal Reserve Law 1913. For one. Pulling out of the UN, a money pit of the highest magnitude. All our money buys us nothing but hate, the infringement of our sovereignty. We are paying for our own political rape, and murder. Is this what we want? I prefer to cut out the diseased parts, and save the good stuff, like freedom, and God given rights. OWS wants blood, and socialism. Who is the more mature? More knowledgeable? More reasonable? More deserving of your vote? What tactics do ordinary citizens prefer? If you have a preference, you had better step up to the plate, and vote, or you might never have a choice, again. Dictatorship holds no fascination for me. We are on the precipice. Do we fall over the cliff, or save ourselves? What will you do the day after our money becomes worthless? You will be penniless, unable to pay a bill, or buy a loaf of bread? Think long and hard about, what you want. Vote Smart! D.I. Larson Ocala More letters, Page 10 After casual dating for a few months, Bill began to pay closer attention to Sandra and after a picnic at Crescent Park, a local beach, they started dating more steadily. Sandra freely admits to playing hard to get which apparently paid off. A year later, they were married and last May they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. The Brotherhoods have three children, two sons and a daughter. David lives in Ocala; Darlene lives in Connecticut and Douglas lives in California. They have six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In their early years of married life, Sandra stayed home with her children until they were of school age. She then took work with the Mine Safety Administration testing the effectiveness of gas masks. She also worked taking care of a special education student. Among her other jobs, she was a quality control technician for Norelco Corp. and a plant facility technician. Later she enrolled in Groton College and trained in dining services. She admits to not liking to cook to this day but she does it and according to all reports, she does it very well. Bill obtained a job with a fence construction firm in Hartford, Connecticut. Commuting between Connecticut and Rhode Island was too much so the couple moved to Niantic. Bill later began his career working for General Dynamics. For the better part of his last fifteen years with the company Bill worked on a tug boat. When the company got out of the boat business, Bill retired. Eight years ago, the two of them moved to Cherrywood. At the time, both Bills mother and Sandras mom said, Not without us. So shortly after they moved, both of their moms moved in with them. Since the mothers had known each other even longer than Bill and Sandra, the two got along famously. Last year Sandras mom passed away but Marie, Bills mom, still resides with the couple. Sandras experience as a care giver and her compassionate heart has served her well in these times. For their 50th wedding anniversary, Sandra and Bills kids gave them a surprise party. It lasted two days and was highlighted by a renewal of wedding vows ceremony at Queen of Peace Catholic Church. The following August, they took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate. In spite of her many obligations, Sandra is very active in the community. She serves on our CERT Team; is active in the Veterans Club; is a member of the Feathered Friends organization (formerly the Red Hat Society) and supports many of the activities here in the community. You have seen Bill and Sandra at the 100 Days of Summer events; the Fun and Sun games; Bocce Ball; Oktoberfest; the Garden Club, and many other special times. With quick and ready smiles that belie some of the hardships that they have and are facing, with a quiet courage and loving hearts, Sandra and Bill are a joy to be around. With a cheerful outlook on life and a sincere affection for all, these two enjoy socializing with their many friends in Cherrywood and most of all, life itself.

T oday is First Friday Art Walk. From 6 to 8 p.m., you can watch local artists work on their craft at Ocalas downtown square. If you cant make to the square, just read some artful stories in todays Pun Alley.Heavenly artLittle Johnnys grandmother took him to the park on a Saturday morning. It was springtime and many beautiful flowers were in bloom. His grandmother remarked, Doesnt it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you? Johnny said, Yes, God did it and he did it left handed. This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him, What makes you say God did this with his left hand? Well, said Johnny, we learned at Sunday school that Jesus sits on Gods right hand. The statue Back when General Minh was in charge in South Vietnam an artist came to him and pleaded to make a statue in his honor, at government expense of course. Please, General Minh, you are the peoples hero, he told him. Yes, but make the sculpture in bronze, replied the general. So the artist made the sculpture, but when it was unveiled in a small private ceremony, the general was furious. For the sculpture was made in silver. I want bronze, he said, I want bronze! The artist then made the sculpture out of bronze. When the sculpture was revealed the general was overjoyed at the wonderful bronze likeness. The artist asked the general, Why did you insist that the sculpture be made of bronze? Why? Ill tell you why, said the general. Because General Minh prefer bronze. Miniatures I saw some things at an auction labeled Art Objects. Considering what they looked like, Id object too. When the artist thought about drawing a cube he had a mental block. The absentminded sculptor put his model to bed and started chiseling on his wife. A good artist draws the line somewhere. An artist who specialized in 3-D painting borrowed Alka-Seltzers slogan: Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz Oh! What A Relief It Is! An acquaintance thinks he is an artist. He draws welfare. An artist painted a picture of a canary and thought he could sell it by calling it Mothers Whistler. An artist without a palette makes paintings without taste. One artist uses a strange medium. He paints everything on an empty stomach. The Mona Lisa was brought up in court on charges of murder; but it turned out that shed been framed. An artists model is a girl who is often unsuited for her work. I may not be a great artist, but I am really good at drawing a blank. Color dots A young couple, Wilbur and Kay, were exploring the exhibits at the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles one afternoon, when they came upon the museums famous collection of Eighteenth-Century French Impressionist Art. Wilbur, unfamiliar as he was with the fine points of the period, came across a well-known painting that he mistakenly thought was an example of pointillism. He immediately called his wife over and naively exclaimed, Kay, Seurat! Seurat! She took one bored look at the painting and replied, Whatever, Wilby, Wilby.Cutting comment John worked in an art supply store that sold artists canvas by the yard, and it was available in either of two widths, 36 inches or 48 inches. A customer asked, Can you please cut some canvas for me? John asked, Certainly, what width? The customer replied with a confused and slightly annoyed look, Scissors? Music, musicTheres a history of crossover artists in many musical genres. Even George Gershwin occasionally strayed into other markets. In fact he sometimes mixed it up quite a bit, as he did in one of his most famous albums, Rap CD & Blues. Its a gasRecently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, breaking in, evading security, getting out and escaping with the goods, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Oak Run no-walking article was incorrectIve lived in Oak Run for 11 years, and often disagreed with Decca, but with this one they hit a home run. Oak Run is probably the most natural and beautiful community west of I-75. Yep, no sidewalks or Villages type golf cart paths, a natural habitat for birds and animals, but most of all people. You know, there are even people here who want the trees cut down, Thank goodness Decca wont let trees to be cut down. As a comparison, Bay Hill, where Arnold Palmer lives and where Ive played his golf course, has no sidewalks or cart paths, and they dont complain. I live in the Fountains and on 73rd Circle, the same as the writer, but probably longer. If that person wants to walk, the Circle in the Fountains is 1/2 of a block shy of one (1) mile. Plenty of walking area, plus all the other beautiful neighborhoods. Before my wife had two back surgeries, she walked 2 1/2 miles morning and afternoon and never went on the boulevard. Now, Im a veteran of the Korean War, having served on the aircraft carrier USS Leyte CV 32, and this is one veteran who appreciates, and even wrote sometime earlier, that there should be no walking on the boulevard. Taking away my rights, hogwash. This person has absolutely no right to speak for veterans. Will this help save peoples lives, absolutely. Were not in Washington, DC, .New York City, or St. Louis, from where I retired as vice president of St. Louis Blue Shield. This is a rural, all natural retirement community, and just because we have two types of senior citizens here, those who are physically old and those mentally old, should tell you something. I wonder if the writer ever served in the service or a war zone or more importantly, ever had to pick up a dead comrade, I have. So, dont tell me what rights Im being denied, but think of the sacrifices many of us made so people, like the writer could rant and rave, without making common sense. It should be pointed out, there were even people who would walk the boulevard with golf clubs and swing them at cars if they got to close to them. Now does that take intelligence? Again C, or average is not too bright. There should be accolades to Decca, and Ill be at the head of the line, for their action rather than criticize them. Who knows, maybe the writers life has been saved by the new rule. The next restriction should be to keep bicycles off of the boulevard. Can you imagine 60, 70 or 80 year old people riding bikes on the boulevard? More disasters waiting to happen. Im 80, and I sure wouldnt. Bill Ford Oak RunActive residents in Oak Runs futureTheyre coming, theyre coming. Who you may ask? Baby Boomers or as some refer to this age group Golden Boomers. These folks will be gravitating to Florida just as generations before them have. But the Boomers are different. Theyve always been different. As they grow in age, their age old habits wont change. They love hiking, biking, walking, and jogging. When they retire to Florida they will be looking for a place to live that offers easy access to these activities. Decca needs to wake up and realize that if they want to be competitive in the housing market they need to appeal to these folks. Its no longer business as usual. Places like the Villages have realized that, and thats why they are one of the biggest housing success stories in the entire United States. Even impervious to the latest downtrends in the housing market. I know that Oak Run doesnt care to be another Village. But we could emulate some activities that make them great. Perhaps we should have a lane on the boulevard designated for walkers, bikers and golf carts. Perhaps if we controlled the speed of the cars on the boulevard, and not the pedestrians this would help. Has anyone thought of a few strategically placed speed bumps here and there? Perhaps DECCA management could work with local businesses and traffic management officials and develop access roads for golf carts to visit stores in areas such as Wal-Mart. Perhaps, and this is a crazy idea, how about a dog park? Weve lost one of our golf courses. Now that beautiful piece of property just sits there with no trespassing signs posted every 50 feet or so. With just a little bit of additional development this would be a great place to walk, and jog, and perhaps even some park benches installed as a resting place along the way. Certainly in that acreage, somewhere, theres space enough for a dog park. Notices in our monthly newsletter that basically say, stay off any, and all property, that does not belong to you and posting signs on the boulevard restricting all traffic other than automobile do nothing other than create a hostile attitude toward Decca management. As I said above the generation now coming to Florida is an active generation and they will move to areas that cater to these activities. Decca suggests we do our exercising in our back yards and stay off of their property. Well, their 50X 50 yards will not appeal to, nor contain these folks. Decca needs to grow, and endorse change. Not hide their head in the sand. They need to look at other retirement communities to see why they are so appealing, and incorporate, as best they can, these activities into Oak Run. Maybe by doing so, we too could maintain and sustain our property values and stop the equity loss that we are all experiencing. Yes, in this day and age its no longer business as usual.

J une is quite famous for the variety of nuptial activities. I am not sure exactly why June is the month of choice for these couples; I just go along with the flow. Consequently, through the years, I have officiated at many weddings during the month of June. I must confess that weddings are not my favorite form of activity. I would much rather be doing something else, anything else, than officiating at the wedding ceremony of a young couple who are in love. When I first began this area of my pastoral work, I was very nervous. I was concerned that people were watching and judging me and therefore I needed to have everything perfect. The day of the wedding found me an absolute nervous wreck. If it was not for several Apple Fritters that morning, I am not sure how I would get through the day. I feel that my personal inconvenience at these nuptial ceremonies qualified me to indulge in eating several, if not many, Apple Fritters. Everybody needs something to help endure the inconveniences of life. Apple Fritter is my chosen remedy. I remember when I came to the shocking conclusion that nobody at the wedding ceremony was watching me. The wedding ceremony was concluded and the reception was over and I was in the restroom washing my hands when I happened to look into the mirror. There to my chagrin I discovered that the back of my collar was not covering my tie. Nobody even hinted that I had a wardrobe malfunction. It was then I realized that nobody was paying any attention to me. I could come to the wedding ceremony in a swimsuit and nobody would notice. Not that I have been tempted in this area, mind you. After all, the focus of the whole affair is the bride. Since this amazing discovery, weddings have not been quite so difficult for me. I do not worry about my appearance because nobody else is worrying about my appearance. I often counsel young grooms who seem quite nervous that nobody is even aware of their presence. Nobody comes to a wedding to see the groom. The only thing that really matters is the bride. After a wedding everybody always says, Wasnt the bride beautiful? Or, Didnt the bride look beautiful in her wedding dress? I have yet to hear somebody say, Wasnt that groom handsome? Or, I loved the grooms tuxedo. It just never happens. This is the reason why every groom wears a rented tuxedo. Nobody is admiring him or his attire. The wedding dress is something altogether different. Very few brides rent a wedding dress. Even though they are only going to wear it, supposedly, once in their lifetime, they all want to buy that special wedding dress. One reason I am not so very fond of weddings is the premarital counseling involved. Of all the counseling I have given through the years, I am wondering if anybody ever paid attention to what I said. I think I could do the whole counseling session in pig Latin and the couple would sit there smiling at me as though they understood every word I was saying. With that in mind, I have tried through the years to make the counseling sessions as long and painful as possible. If they can survive a series of premarital counseling sessions from me, then they deserve a lifetime of holy matrimonial bliss. One strange phenomenon I have seen in weddings throughout the years is the number of people who cry at weddings. For some it may be overwhelmed with happiness. Others may be overwhelmed with memories of their own wedding. But the father of the bride is the one I watch. It is very hard for some of these fathers to keep back the tears, not because they are losing a daughter, or because they are gaining a son-in-law, but because they are losing a whole lot of money on this wedding. Then it got me thinking. Most weddings cost a small fortune. Of course small is a relative term. A young bride coached by her mother will find ways to burn through the fathers bank account. No price is too much to pay for this daughter of ours, the mother explains. Shes worth everything it costs. And the father weeps some more. Especially if there is a younger daughter in the wings. Looking into the situation the more I discovered just how much people pay for their weddings. When anybody asks me about performing the wedFriday, June 1, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I cry at weddings, too O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE12 I t was an event that rocked the world and sent Jewish pride up to a new level. The event established the State of Israel as a military force to be reckoned with and set the stage for other victories to follow. Its military and political implications were extraordinary but not to be neglected was the impact it had on Jewish religious theology, for in six days the Lord created heaven and earth and all it contained and in six days the Israel Defense Forces conquered all their enemies and on June 7, 1967, 45 years ago, liberated the City of Jerusalem and freed the Temple Mount. The historic event was described in a radio broadcast heard on Israeli airwaves. In a cry that stirred the Jewish nation, Colonel Motta Gur shouted, The Temple Mount is in our hands! Brigadier General Shlomo Goren, who later became Chief Rabbi of Israel, approached the sacred mount, recited the El Molay Rachamin prayer for the fallen soldiers and blew a triumphant blast on the shofar. Soldiers, who were not even religious, wept at the emotional capture of the very center of Jewish worship from ancient times and recited the Shecheianu, the prayer for thanksgiving for joyful events. General Goren recited: Blessed are You who comforts Zion and builds Jerusalem. The Old and New City of Jerusalem were now united and the Jews, denied access to the most holy site in Judaism for 19 years, The Western Wall, were now able to visit the sacred spot. The Western Wall or Hakotel Hamaaravi is the last remaining remnant of the Second Temple built by Herod. In 70 C.E. the Temple was destroyed by the Romans, the Jews were forced into exile and were without a homeland until 1948. In 1948, Jerusalem was captured by the Jordanians and the city was divided into the Old and New cities, with the Western Wall in Arab hands. Jews were denied access to the holy site until June 7, 1967 when the Israeli Army liberated the area during what would be called the Six Day War. For centuries, the Western Wall has been a focus of prayer and emotion. In the Middle Ages, it became known as the Wailing Wall because so many Jews came there to weep over the loss of their Temple and their sovereignty as a people. Since the unification of Jerusalem, the term has negative connotations and its use is discouraged. The Wall itself actually has three layers, because like many sites in Israel, it was built on top of an existing structure. The Wall extends some 60 feet below. It was actually a retaining wall to the Second Temple and legend has it that it was built by the poor people. Excavations around the area have revealed valuable artifacts dating back centuries. Today people visit the Western Wall, as I have done, to pray and meditate. It is a site sacred to the three Abrahamic faiths and I have stood side by side with Christians who have worshipped at this sacred place. I have also witnessed bar mitzvah ceremonies taken place there. As in traditional circles, a separation, divides men from women worshippers. In recent years, a courageous group of women, called the Women of the Wall, have sought and received permission for holding all-female Torah services at the Temple Mount. Sadly, this has been received with anger by some conservative Orthodox Jewish groups, and scrapes and violence erupted. Visitors to the Kotel, often leave little prayer petitions in the cracks. Symbolically, I believe that is what keeps this 2,000 plus year old wall from falling down. It is believed that God answers prayers left at the Wall. The former governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, had one of his aides leave a prayer for our state at the holy site. I believe we escaped serious hurricanes that year! Legend says that on the fast day of Tishah BAv, the 9th of Av, the day the Temple was destroyed, the dew that clings to the Wall are actually tears she is shedding. Even as Jerusalem lay in ruins, the rabbis of the Talmud taught that the Temple was not destroyed for the Shekhinah (the Divine Presence) still dwells within. May the Shekhinah, whose Presence has never left the sacred site, continue to watch over Jerusalem and may she lead all the people of this holy city to a new era of peace and understanding.

I always leave that to the discretion of the groom. Usually, the groom is so discreet in paying me that I actually never see any money. When I discover how much the wedding has cost and how much I was not given as an honorarium for my services, I too, weep at weddings. Occasionally, I meet a young couple who understand the importance of a Christian marriage. Although it is viewed as oldfashioned, I like to reflect what the Bible says. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:24 KJV). This kind of a wedding calls for tears of joy.The Rev. James L.

Support our SoldiersCherrywood is proud to Support our Soldiers; we call it S.O.S. Thankfully, we have a tireless volunteer to over see this project and mail out packages every month. Her name is Norellen Pickell and she makes sure that our troops get what they need. There is a box at the clubhouse for donations of shampoo; soaps; toiletries of all kinds; hard candies; beef jerky and other nonperishable treats. Since the biggest expense is postage, if you have a few extra dollars that you can drop off at the clubhouse, your donation would be greatly appreciated. Here is an excerpt from Norellen in her own words: Were creating care packages to be sent to any American Hero at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany and Combat Support Hospitals in the Middle East. Often our injured men and women arrive for medical care without their belongings. You can help in our mission to provide honor and comfort for our troops. Everyone brings different gifts to the table we invite you to share yours. Thank you Norellen for the great work you do!

Bill left school and joined the U.S. Army where he served with the 175th Heavy Construction Engineers in Germany. At the same time as Bill was serving, a young soldier by the name of Elvis Presley was also stationed in Germany and they met. Sandra was going on group and double dates as was the custom in those days. On one evening when Bill had returned home, he went out with his brother on a double date. Sandra was his brothers date. Unable to find anyone to go on the rollercoaster with him, Bill asked Sandra. Having never been on one before, she agreed so he wouldnt have to go it alone. She hasnt been on one since.

I always leave that to the discretion of the groom. Usually, the groom is so discreet in paying me that I actually never see any money. When I discover how much the wedding has cost and how much I was not given as an honorarium for my services, I too, weep at weddings. Occasionally, I meet a young couple who understand the importance of a Christian marriage. Although it is viewed as oldfashioned, I like to reflect what the Bible says. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:24 KJV). This kind of a wedding calls for tears of joy.The Rev. James L.

J une is quite famous for the variety of nuptial activities. I am not sure exactly why June is the month of choice for these couples; I just go along with the flow. Consequently, through the years, I have officiated at many weddings during the month of June. I must confess that weddings are not my favorite form of activity. I would much rather be doing something else, anything else, than officiating at the wedding ceremony of a young couple who are in love. When I first began this area of my pastoral work, I was very nervous. I was concerned that people were watching and judging me and therefore I needed to have everything perfect. The day of the wedding found me an absolute nervous wreck. If it was not for several Apple Fritters that morning, I am not sure how I would get through the day. I feel that my personal inconvenience at these nuptial ceremonies qualified me to indulge in eating several, if not many, Apple Fritters. Everybody needs something to help endure the inconveniences of life. Apple Fritter is my chosen remedy. I remember when I came to the shocking conclusion that nobody at the wedding ceremony was watching me. The wedding ceremony was concluded and the reception was over and I was in the restroom washing my hands when I happened to look into the mirror. There to my chagrin I discovered that the back of my collar was not covering my tie. Nobody even hinted that I had a wardrobe malfunction. It was then I realized that nobody was paying any attention to me. I could come to the wedding ceremony in a swimsuit and nobody would notice. Not that I have been tempted in this area, mind you. After all, the focus of the whole affair is the bride. Since this amazing discovery, weddings have not been quite so difficult for me. I do not worry about my appearance because nobody else is worrying about my appearance. I often counsel young grooms who seem quite nervous that nobody is even aware of their presence. Nobody comes to a wedding to see the groom. The only thing that really matters is the bride. After a wedding everybody always says, Wasnt the bride beautiful? Or, Didnt the bride look beautiful in her wedding dress? I have yet to hear somebody say, Wasnt that groom handsome? Or, I loved the grooms tuxedo. It just never happens. This is the reason why every groom wears a rented tuxedo. Nobody is admiring him or his attire. The wedding dress is something altogether different. Very few brides rent a wedding dress. Even though they are only going to wear it, supposedly, once in their lifetime, they all want to buy that special wedding dress. One reason I am not so very fond of weddings is the premarital counseling involved. Of all the counseling I have given through the years, I am wondering if anybody ever paid attention to what I said. I think I could do the whole counseling session in pig Latin and the couple would sit there smiling at me as though they understood every word I was saying. With that in mind, I have tried through the years to make the counseling sessions as long and painful as possible. If they can survive a series of premarital counseling sessions from me, then they deserve a lifetime of holy matrimonial bliss. One strange phenomenon I have seen in weddings throughout the years is the number of people who cry at weddings. For some it may be overwhelmed with happiness. Others may be overwhelmed with memories of their own wedding. But the father of the bride is the one I watch. It is very hard for some of these fathers to keep back the tears, not because they are losing a daughter, or because they are gaining a son-in-law, but because they are losing a whole lot of money on this wedding. Then it got me thinking. Most weddings cost a small fortune. Of course small is a relative term. A young bride coached by her mother will find ways to burn through the fathers bank account. No price is too much to pay for this daughter of ours, the mother explains. Shes worth everything it costs. And the father weeps some more. Especially if there is a younger daughter in the wings. Looking into the situation the more I discovered just how much people pay for their weddings. When anybody asks me about performing the wedFriday, June 1, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I cry at weddings, too O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE12 I t was an event that rocked the world and sent Jewish pride up to a new level. The event established the State of Israel as a military force to be reckoned with and set the stage for other victories to follow. Its military and political implications were extraordinary but not to be neglected was the impact it had on Jewish religious theology, for in six days the Lord created heaven and earth and all it contained and in six days the Israel Defense Forces conquered all their enemies and on June 7, 1967, 45 years ago, liberated the City of Jerusalem and freed the Temple Mount. The historic event was described in a radio broadcast heard on Israeli airwaves. In a cry that stirred the Jewish nation, Colonel Motta Gur shouted, The Temple Mount is in our hands! Brigadier General Shlomo Goren, who later became Chief Rabbi of Israel, approached the sacred mount, recited the El Molay Rachamin prayer for the fallen soldiers and blew a triumphant blast on the shofar. Soldiers, who were not even religious, wept at the emotional capture of the very center of Jewish worship from ancient times and recited the Shecheianu, the prayer for thanksgiving for joyful events. General Goren recited: Blessed are You who comforts Zion and builds Jerusalem. The Old and New City of Jerusalem were now united and the Jews, denied access to the most holy site in Judaism for 19 years, The Western Wall, were now able to visit the sacred spot. The Western Wall or Hakotel Hamaaravi is the last remaining remnant of the Second Temple built by Herod. In 70 C.E. the Temple was destroyed by the Romans, the Jews were forced into exile and were without a homeland until 1948. In 1948, Jerusalem was captured by the Jordanians and the city was divided into the Old and New cities, with the Western Wall in Arab hands. Jews were denied access to the holy site until June 7, 1967 when the Israeli Army liberated the area during what would be called the Six Day War. For centuries, the Western Wall has been a focus of prayer and emotion. In the Middle Ages, it became known as the Wailing Wall because so many Jews came there to weep over the loss of their Temple and their sovereignty as a people. Since the unification of Jerusalem, the term has negative connotations and its use is discouraged. The Wall itself actually has three layers, because like many sites in Israel, it was built on top of an existing structure. The Wall extends some 60 feet below. It was actually a retaining wall to the Second Temple and legend has it that it was built by the poor people. Excavations around the area have revealed valuable artifacts dating back centuries. Today people visit the Western Wall, as I have done, to pray and meditate. It is a site sacred to the three Abrahamic faiths and I have stood side by side with Christians who have worshipped at this sacred place. I have also witnessed bar mitzvah ceremonies taken place there. As in traditional circles, a separation, divides men from women worshippers. In recent years, a courageous group of women, called the Women of the Wall, have sought and received permission for holding all-female Torah services at the Temple Mount. Sadly, this has been received with anger by some conservative Orthodox Jewish groups, and scrapes and violence erupted. Visitors to the Kotel, often leave little prayer petitions in the cracks. Symbolically, I believe that is what keeps this 2,000 plus year old wall from falling down. It is believed that God answers prayers left at the Wall. The former governor of Florida, Charlie Crist, had one of his aides leave a prayer for our state at the holy site. I believe we escaped serious hurricanes that year! Legend says that on the fast day of Tishah BAv, the 9th of Av, the day the Temple was destroyed, the dew that clings to the Wall are actually tears she is shedding. Even as Jerusalem lay in ruins, the rabbis of the Talmud taught that the Temple was not destroyed for the Shekhinah (the Divine Presence) still dwells within. May the Shekhinah, whose Presence has never left the sacred site, continue to watch over Jerusalem and may she lead all the people of this holy city to a new era of peace and understanding.

T oday is First Friday Art Walk. From 6 to 8 p.m., you can watch local artists work on their craft at Ocalas downtown square. If you cant make to the square, just read some artful stories in todays Pun Alley.Heavenly artLittle Johnnys grandmother took him to the park on a Saturday morning. It was springtime and many beautiful flowers were in bloom. His grandmother remarked, Doesnt it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you? Johnny said, Yes, God did it and he did it left handed. This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him, What makes you say God did this with his left hand? Well, said Johnny, we learned at Sunday school that Jesus sits on Gods right hand. The statue Back when General Minh was in charge in South Vietnam an artist came to him and pleaded to make a statue in his honor, at government expense of course. Please, General Minh, you are the peoples hero, he told him. Yes, but make the sculpture in bronze, replied the general. So the artist made the sculpture, but when it was unveiled in a small private ceremony, the general was furious. For the sculpture was made in silver. I want bronze, he said, I want bronze! The artist then made the sculpture out of bronze. When the sculpture was revealed the general was overjoyed at the wonderful bronze likeness. The artist asked the general, Why did you insist that the sculpture be made of bronze? Why? Ill tell you why, said the general. Because General Minh prefer bronze. Miniatures I saw some things at an auction labeled Art Objects. Considering what they looked like, Id object too. When the artist thought about drawing a cube he had a mental block. The absentminded sculptor put his model to bed and started chiseling on his wife. A good artist draws the line somewhere. An artist who specialized in 3-D painting borrowed Alka-Seltzers slogan: Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz Oh! What A Relief It Is! An acquaintance thinks he is an artist. He draws welfare. An artist painted a picture of a canary and thought he could sell it by calling it Mothers Whistler. An artist without a palette makes paintings without taste. One artist uses a strange medium. He paints everything on an empty stomach. The Mona Lisa was brought up in court on charges of murder; but it turned out that shed been framed. An artists model is a girl who is often unsuited for her work. I may not be a great artist, but I am really good at drawing a blank. Color dots A young couple, Wilbur and Kay, were exploring the exhibits at the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles one afternoon, when they came upon the museums famous collection of Eighteenth-Century French Impressionist Art. Wilbur, unfamiliar as he was with the fine points of the period, came across a well-known painting that he mistakenly thought was an example of pointillism. He immediately called his wife over and naively exclaimed, Kay, Seurat! Seurat! She took one bored look at the painting and replied, Whatever, Wilby, Wilby.Cutting comment John worked in an art supply store that sold artists canvas by the yard, and it was available in either of two widths, 36 inches or 48 inches. A customer asked, Can you please cut some canvas for me? John asked, Certainly, what width? The customer replied with a confused and slightly annoyed look, Scissors? Music, musicTheres a history of crossover artists in many musical genres. Even George Gershwin occasionally strayed into other markets. In fact he sometimes mixed it up quite a bit, as he did in one of his most famous albums, Rap CD & Blues. Its a gasRecently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, breaking in, evading security, getting out and escaping with the goods, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Oak Run no-walking article was incorrectIve lived in Oak Run for 11 years, and often disagreed with Decca, but with this one they hit a home run. Oak Run is probably the most natural and beautiful community west of I-75. Yep, no sidewalks or Villages type golf cart paths, a natural habitat for birds and animals, but most of all people. You know, there are even people here who want the trees cut down, Thank goodness Decca wont let trees to be cut down. As a comparison, Bay Hill, where Arnold Palmer lives and where Ive played his golf course, has no sidewalks or cart paths, and they dont complain. I live in the Fountains and on 73rd Circle, the same as the writer, but probably longer. If that person wants to walk, the Circle in the Fountains is 1/2 of a block shy of one (1) mile. Plenty of walking area, plus all the other beautiful neighborhoods. Before my wife had two back surgeries, she walked 2 1/2 miles morning and afternoon and never went on the boulevard. Now, Im a veteran of the Korean War, having served on the aircraft carrier USS Leyte CV 32, and this is one veteran who appreciates, and even wrote sometime earlier, that there should be no walking on the boulevard. Taking away my rights, hogwash. This person has absolutely no right to speak for veterans. Will this help save peoples lives, absolutely. Were not in Washington, DC, .New York City, or St. Louis, from where I retired as vice president of St. Louis Blue Shield. This is a rural, all natural retirement community, and just because we have two types of senior citizens here, those who are physically old and those mentally old, should tell you something. I wonder if the writer ever served in the service or a war zone or more importantly, ever had to pick up a dead comrade, I have. So, dont tell me what rights Im being denied, but think of the sacrifices many of us made so people, like the writer could rant and rave, without making common sense. It should be pointed out, there were even people who would walk the boulevard with golf clubs and swing them at cars if they got to close to them. Now does that take intelligence? Again C, or average is not too bright. There should be accolades to Decca, and Ill be at the head of the line, for their action rather than criticize them. Who knows, maybe the writers life has been saved by the new rule. The next restriction should be to keep bicycles off of the boulevard. Can you imagine 60, 70 or 80 year old people riding bikes on the boulevard? More disasters waiting to happen. Im 80, and I sure wouldnt. Bill Ford Oak RunActive residents in Oak Runs futureTheyre coming, theyre coming. Who you may ask? Baby Boomers or as some refer to this age group Golden Boomers. These folks will be gravitating to Florida just as generations before them have. But the Boomers are different. Theyve always been different. As they grow in age, their age old habits wont change. They love hiking, biking, walking, and jogging. When they retire to Florida they will be looking for a place to live that offers easy access to these activities. Decca needs to wake up and realize that if they want to be competitive in the housing market they need to appeal to these folks. Its no longer business as usual. Places like the Villages have realized that, and thats why they are one of the biggest housing success stories in the entire United States. Even impervious to the latest downtrends in the housing market. I know that Oak Run doesnt care to be another Village. But we could emulate some activities that make them great. Perhaps we should have a lane on the boulevard designated for walkers, bikers and golf carts. Perhaps if we controlled the speed of the cars on the boulevard, and not the pedestrians this would help. Has anyone thought of a few strategically placed speed bumps here and there? Perhaps DECCA management could work with local businesses and traffic management officials and develop access roads for golf carts to visit stores in areas such as Wal-Mart. Perhaps, and this is a crazy idea, how about a dog park? Weve lost one of our golf courses. Now that beautiful piece of property just sits there with no trespassing signs posted every 50 feet or so. With just a little bit of additional development this would be a great place to walk, and jog, and perhaps even some park benches installed as a resting place along the way. Certainly in that acreage, somewhere, theres space enough for a dog park. Notices in our monthly newsletter that basically say, stay off any, and all property, that does not belong to you and posting signs on the boulevard restricting all traffic other than automobile do nothing other than create a hostile attitude toward Decca management. As I said above the generation now coming to Florida is an active generation and they will move to areas that cater to these activities. Decca suggests we do our exercising in our back yards and stay off of their property. Well, their 50X 50 yards will not appeal to, nor contain these folks. Decca needs to grow, and endorse change. Not hide their head in the sand. They need to look at other retirement communities to see why they are so appealing, and incorporate, as best they can, these activities into Oak Run. Maybe by doing so, we too could maintain and sustain our property values and stop the equity loss that we are all experiencing. Yes, in this day and age its no longer business as usual.

This year the theme for vacation bible school is Adventures on Promise Island where students discover Gods lifesaving love. These students will learn Gods Promises: God is with you, God cares about you, God gives you what you need, God saves you and God answers you. They will see God at work in the lives of the Old Testament and New Testament as Bible characters realize Gods promises are for them too. Amid the swaying palm trees, exotic wildlife and welcoming sunshine the students will learn about these promises through the games, songs, crafts, and bible stories while enjoying the tasty snacks. Registration for vacation Bible school is available during the month of June, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4 p.m. at the church office. The program planners are also looking for students in the 6th grade and older plus some adults who would like to volunteer and assist the teachers. For further information contact the VBS Coordinator, Joan Greve at 352-3048711 or the church office at 352-854-4509 ext. 221. Joy Lutheran Church is at 7045 S.W. 83rd Place at State Road 200, Ocala.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com helped in any way. This project is very dear to Currys heart, which, by the way was the recipient of a new valve a couple of years ago. That feat is within itself most remarkable because people of Currys mature age are not usually considered candidates for heart surgery at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Gainesville. However, because of Currys walking regimen and healthy lifestyle, he was able to have the surgery and has made remarkable progress since then. How many of us know someone of Currys years to be able to work a regular job which he does joyfully at the Publix in Paddock Shopping Center? Many of Ocalas residents know Curry and love his winning smile and jovial banter as he helps them with their groceries on a regular basis. The other employees love working with Curry too, but one (who asked not to be identified) told me that Curry can outdo me on a regular basis and added and I am a whole lot younger so I dont have any excuse. As I close this special Thank You from Curry Andrews, I would like to add my own Thank you! to this generous, loving, unique man who works so hard to help others. I feel blessed to know him and even more blessed to be his friend. I love you, Curry, and so do lots and lots of other people and little babies who will not know you but will live and be healthy because of the walking and working you have done for them. You, sir, are one of the special breed of men and women about whom we refer when we speak of The Greatest Generation. Priscilla Geissal is a columnist for the West Marion Messenger. ANDREWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Our water supplyHow can a state that is surrounded by water become a state that cant supply its residents with clean drinking water? We have been told that there is an unlimited supply of fresh water coming from the aquifer that has supplied Silver Springs for the last several hundred years. Drought and over pumping has played its part in drying up our most precious resource of an unlimited supply of the purest drinking water in America. I feel that the worst assault on our drinking water is yet to come through our elected politicians. These appointed and elected representatives who are in charge of this once valuable and precious resource of drinking water may have already made their decision to give a few land owners the rest of the states drinking water. I believe that the importance of salvaging whats left of the water that flows from our aquifers should be left to the voting public and put on the ballot for this falls election. Let the people of our state make this all important decision. I am afraid that the decision has already been made to sell our water to the highest bidder (and that isnt us) that has purchased the votes with the approval of our pro business politicians in Tallahassee. Who will admit that they are responsible for the low water levels in our lakes and rivers? Who will admit that our boat docks only lead to empty dust bowls that were once a great place to sit and splash the water with your feet or maybe do a little swimming or fishing? Are you part of the population that can only water your lawn once a week while someone else can drill over 130 new wells into the aquifer for a new cattle ranch that will win approval by our state legislators who own the votes of our state water board? These same people have allowed well water and spring water to be bottled and sold back to us with the profits going to a few business owners. Our states water supply should be saved by the voting public and not left to the politicians to decide. Jerry Segovis OTOW Fix governmentOccupy Wall Street and The Tea Party agree the government is broken, and so is Wall Street. They are both in need of repair. How, is the question? While these groups agree on issues, they disagree on solutions, and tactics. The Tea Party wants peaceful tactics and resolution. Through the ballot, and the repeal of offending laws, The Federal Reserve Law 1913. For one. Pulling out of the UN, a money pit of the highest magnitude. All our money buys us nothing but hate, the infringement of our sovereignty. We are paying for our own political rape, and murder. Is this what we want? I prefer to cut out the diseased parts, and save the good stuff, like freedom, and God given rights. OWS wants blood, and socialism. Who is the more mature? More knowledgeable? More reasonable? More deserving of your vote? What tactics do ordinary citizens prefer? If you have a preference, you had better step up to the plate, and vote, or you might never have a choice, again. Dictatorship holds no fascination for me. We are on the precipice. Do we fall over the cliff, or save ourselves? What will you do the day after our money becomes worthless? You will be penniless, unable to pay a bill, or buy a loaf of bread? Think long and hard about, what you want. Vote Smart! D.I. Larson Ocala More letters, Page 10 After casual dating for a few months, Bill began to pay closer attention to Sandra and after a picnic at Crescent Park, a local beach, they started dating more steadily. Sandra freely admits to playing hard to get which apparently paid off. A year later, they were married and last May they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. The Brotherhoods have three children, two sons and a daughter. David lives in Ocala; Darlene lives in Connecticut and Douglas lives in California. They have six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In their early years of married life, Sandra stayed home with her children until they were of school age. She then took work with the Mine Safety Administration testing the effectiveness of gas masks. She also worked taking care of a special education student. Among her other jobs, she was a quality control technician for Norelco Corp. and a plant facility technician. Later she enrolled in Groton College and trained in dining services. She admits to not liking to cook to this day but she does it and according to all reports, she does it very well. Bill obtained a job with a fence construction firm in Hartford, Connecticut. Commuting between Connecticut and Rhode Island was too much so the couple moved to Niantic. Bill later began his career working for General Dynamics. For the better part of his last fifteen years with the company Bill worked on a tug boat. When the company got out of the boat business, Bill retired. Eight years ago, the two of them moved to Cherrywood. At the time, both Bills mother and Sandras mom said, Not without us. So shortly after they moved, both of their moms moved in with them. Since the mothers had known each other even longer than Bill and Sandra, the two got along famously. Last year Sandras mom passed away but Marie, Bills mom, still resides with the couple. Sandras experience as a care giver and her compassionate heart has served her well in these times. For their 50th wedding anniversary, Sandra and Bills kids gave them a surprise party. It lasted two days and was highlighted by a renewal of wedding vows ceremony at Queen of Peace Catholic Church. The following August, they took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate. In spite of her many obligations, Sandra is very active in the community. She serves on our CERT Team; is active in the Veterans Club; is a member of the Feathered Friends organization (formerly the Red Hat Society) and supports many of the activities here in the community. You have seen Bill and Sandra at the 100 Days of Summer events; the Fun and Sun games; Bocce Ball; Oktoberfest; the Garden Club, and many other special times. With quick and ready smiles that belie some of the hardships that they have and are facing, with a quiet courage and loving hearts, Sandra and Bill are a joy to be around. With a cheerful outlook on life and a sincere affection for all, these two enjoy socializing with their many friends in Cherrywood and most of all, life itself.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com I n the 19th century and the first 50 years of the 20th, many poorly paid, unmarried teachers, particularly females, lived together out of financial necessity. Whether their living arrangements were anything other than shared expenses was seldom questioned. Of course there were village busy biddies who would speculate in social circles about teachers living together, without any factual information on which to base whispered suspicions about sexuality. Gossipers feed on subjects which are none of their business. Opposite sex living together was less tolerated. Shared living by opposite-sex teachers would have resulted in the discharge of both participants, even if their arrangement were chaste. Today opposite-sex living arrangements are more common than matrimony (see 2010 U.S. Census). Here in the 21st century there is a political impetus to establish spousal rights for same-sex partners, by legalizing the couplings and calling them marriages. When he first ran for national office President Obama said I am not willing to have the states deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex. More recently Mr. Obama said his opinion has evolved. He endorsed same-sex marriage. We think Mr. Obamas earlier position civil unions was correct and in keeping with rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Since aboriginal times, sexual selection has meant the choice made by a man or woman of a member of the opposite sex. In civilized western culture the legal definition of marriage has been affirmed in many cases, over centuries: A civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, to discharge for each other and for the community the duties legally incumbent on those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex. In other words, fidelity and procreation of the human species. Authority to perform marriages is granted by states to judges, court clerks, justices of the peace, and clergy members, who must report marriages performed to the office which issued the license. Catholic marriages, Jewish marriages, Orthodox marriages, Muslim marriages, and other rituals by which a couple may choose to declare the essence of their mutual commitment, are ceremonies which are not essential to establishing a legal marriage. The issue of legalizing samesex couplings isnt going away. Thirty-one states have banned same-sex marriage. Four others will consider the subject in the fall elections. We have no argument with assuring the benefits of our constitution to same-sex couples, but under some description other than marriage. That term was defined long before Adam and Eve. So-called same-sex marriage is legal in six states. which were too lazy, inept, or intimidated to give the couplings a distinguishing name such as linkage, joynage, unionage, partnerage, mergerage, symphisage (growing together), or just plain civil union. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 M y first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season starts today, June 1. Tropical storms Alberto and Beryl jumped the gun by being the first named storm in May. We didnt have too much to worry about from them, although we got needed rain from Beryl, and lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at 352-854-3986 or at editor@smcitizen.com.

T ropical storm Alberto, which swirled off the East Coast a couple of weeks ago, and Tropical storm Beryl, which drenched us over the weekend, were early reminders that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June 1 and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. The forecast includes 12 named tropical storms, five named hurricanes and two major hurricanes. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-may-care types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a hohum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bank just in time for the holidays.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont blow off the hurricane season You always recall your first hurricane Jim Flynn Columnist Equal protection by any other name is the same Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED GUEST COMMENTARY BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the Citizen A gain this year, for the twentieth year in a row, my wonderful 92 year old friend who is my neighbor here in Fairfield Village worked the entire month of April collecting donations for the March for Babies, formerly called the March of Dimes, which was held this year on Saturday, April 28. Amazingly, this agile and spritely gentleman walked the entire five-mile course in just one hour and 45 minutes. Even just as amazing was his collection of $1,850 to be used to help prevent and correct birth defects. This is particularly true in these difficult economic times when most of his donations were very small because many people are having financial issues that consume most of their cash. Curry asked me if I would write a follow-up to my previous article as a thank you to all the many people who contributed or Curry Andrews: Thank you for helping my babies PLEASESEEANDREWS PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A heads-up alert to all free-spirited Ewes and Rams: Be wary of a deal that could result in compromising your independence. Check every detail before making a commitment. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New facts emerge that help put an irksome workplace situation in perspective. Meanwhile, pay more attention to a family member who needs your wisdom and strength. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A slight setback in plans is nothing to worry about. Use this delay to deal with a number of matters you might have ignored for too long. Expect news from someone in your past. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre entering a period of stability. Use it to straighten out any outstanding problems related to a very personal situation. Also, pay closer attention to financial matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being a social Lion, you might well benefit from staying out of the spotlight for a while. You need time to reflect on some upcoming decisions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A difficult family situation improves, thanks to your timely intervention. You can now start to focus more of your attention on preparing for a possible career change. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) An on-the-job change works to your benefit by offering new opportunities. Its up to you to check them out. Meanwhile, a stalled romantic situation starts up again. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That flare-up of Scorpian temperament cools down, leaving you more receptive to suggestions about changes that might need to be made in your personal life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unusual period of indecisiveness is a mite frustrating. But things soon clear up, allowing the sage Sagittarian to make those wise pronouncements again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel that you know best, but its not a good idea at this time to try to force your opinions on others. Best advice: Inspire change by example, not by intimidation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Some setbacks could affect your plans to fortify your financial situation. But things start moving again by early next week. Meanwhile, enjoy your resurgent social life. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Show that often-hidden steely spine of yours as you once again stand up to an emotional bully. Youve got the strength to do it, especially as friends rally to your side.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he SPCA does not have regular meetings during the summer but work continues. We still provide bags of pet food for the Meals On Wheels pet food program. We are constantly in need of more dog and cat food to fill the bags for almost 100 pets. You can help by donating bags of dry food. You can place them in a container below the bulletin board in Winn Dixie or by calling 352-362-0985 and well make arrangements to pick it up. We also continue to foster and place dogs and cats that need new homes. We desperately need more volunteers to be fosters. You need not be a member of SPCA to apply. Please call 352-3620985 if you have questions or want to sign up to be a foster parent. We currently have two mature cats and several kittens that need homes. Pumpkin and Kitten have been in their foster home for eight months and really need to find their forever home. Call foster mom, Arlene, at 352-875-9761 to find out more and schedule a meeting. We are trying to find a home for an older dog whos mom just passed away. Buffy is a sweet 9 year old Shih Tzu. She follows you around and loves to be with you. Her main problem is that shes deaf, but dogs easily compensate for that by watching you closely. She doesnt require long walks so will be great for a senior. Call 352362-0985 to see if shes still available. Cute little dogs like Buffy are usually easy to place but larger dogs are not so lucky. The Marion County Animal center has several dogs that have been there for over a year. These are loving dogs that just need the right home. The two we are highlighting are both pit bull mixes. That is a plus, not a minus. Mixed breed dogs are healthier and dont have the negative traits associated with purebreds. Artie (ID A040037) is an energetic dog who needs walking and/or play time. If you are a runner, you need a dog like Artie to run with you. He is good with other dogs but gets excited and jumps when greeting people. Hes a quick learner so that can be controlled with some positive training. Ty (ID A047020) is more mellow than Artie. He is a friendly dog that will win you over with his goofy smile. Both dogs are at 5 years old, between 45-50 pounds, and with a little time and training will make a perfect pet for the right family. Please go by the Animal Center on Baseline Road to check out these great pets. Since June is the start of Hurricane Season, the Animal Center has published a bulletin on disaster preparedness for your pets. You can get one online at their website: marioncountyfl.org/Animalcenter. It lists the things you will need to stock up on and set aside for an emergency situation. Some of these items are obvious, such as food, toys, bedding, litter and/or doggie poop bags, but some things you may not have thought of. These items include the animals vet records, proof of rabies vaccination, an ID tag and a photo, in case he gets separated from you. A microchip is invaluable when this happens. You can get one for your pet cheaply at Work continues at SPCA P AWS AND CLAWS M D Maria Devine This is Artie.

The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures of the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Car pooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, May 22, we played the Criers Tournament but we did not see anyone crying because after we played we were able to decrease the score of our worst hole on both the front and the back sides to what would have been par on that hole. It definitely would be nice to do that every week, but we cannot. The winners were: First flight 1st place, JT LeMasters, 2nd place, Pat Blackburn, 3rd place, Jan Tennant; Second flight 1st place, Salita Timmermeyer, 2nd place tie, Roseann Lavacca, Sylvia Zappia and Patty Dougherty; Third flight 1st place tie, Donna Gwin, Ginger Drake and Arlene Zimmerman. Joan OBrien was closest to the pin. Royal Oaks Lady Niners On May 24 we played a scramble. The team that came in 1st. was Phyllis Oldfield, Sam Timmermeyer, Joyce Madill and Ginger Drake. The team that came in 2nd. was Bette Johnson, Sally Crass and Diana Schmidt. Closest to pin #16 was Sally Crass and Phyllis Oldfield had a chip in on #18. We all went in for our year end meeting and welcomed a new member Gloria Swigart. Then we all went into the dining room and had a great lunch. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe mens golf group played its usual game of three best net on Friday, May 25. Once again we were blessed with warm weather and just enough breeze to keep the bugs off.

Third with a 202 were Ron Catapano, Bill Staiger, Dick Rizzo, and Paul Valois. Closest to the pin were Tom Ducz, Ron Catapano, John ONeill, and John Foutty.

the Animal Center or at your vets office. An extra leash is good but a strong carrier or cage will provide a safe and secure place for your pet if he has to be kept in a separate area. Plan in advance and know what you will do if you have to evacuate. Some hotels allow pets but not all. Vangard High School is the only local shelter that allows pets but they are housed in a separate building. There are other things to consider about providing for your pet(s) during a disaster and keeping them safe. This is just a reminder that your pet is part of your family and needs to be included in your emergency planning. Have a safe summer! If you want to know more about the SPCA or need to reach us for help with an animal, please call 352-3620985.

The jail is located at the Sheriffs complex. Tutoring in the jail is a unique experience, but it is also a very rewarding one. Although they are incarcerated, the inmates you will be working with are still students who seek to better themselves. You could have a huge impact by working with individuals and giving them the tools they need to not wind up back in the jail again. Meetings are once a week, typically 1 hour in duration.

2012, the continuation of the overall conditions associated with the Atlantic high-activity era that began in 1995, in addition to nearaverage sea surface temperatures across much of the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, known as the Main Development Region. Two factors now in place that can limit storm development, if they persist, are: strong wind shear, which is hostile to hurricane formation in the Main Development Region, and cooler sea surface temperatures in the far eastern Atlantic. Another potentially competing climate factor would be El Nio if it develops by late summer to early fall. In that case, conditions could be less conducive for hurricane formation and intensification during the peak months (August-October) of the season, possibly shifting the activity toward the lower end of the predicted range, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. In a more immediate example of research supporting hurricane forecasting, NOAA this season is introducing enhancements to two of the computer models available to hurricane forecasters the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) models. The HWRF model has been upgraded with a higher resolution and improved atmospheric physics. This latest version has demonstrated a 20 to 25 percent improvement in track forecasts and a 15 percent improvement in intensity forecasts relative to the previous version while also showing improvement in the representation of storm structure and size. Improvements to the GFDL model for 2012 include physics upgrades that are expected to reduce or eliminate a high bias in the model's intensity forecasts. The seasonal outlook does not predict how many storms will hit land. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts are provided by NOAAs National Hurricane Center, which continuously monitors the tropics for storm development and tracking throughout the season using an array of tools including satellites, advance computer modeling, hurricane hunter aircraft, and landand ocean-based observations sources such as radars and buoys.

It paints a portrait of a divided America in 1880 when at the Republican convention Garfield, over his strenuous protests, is nominated on the 33rd ballot. Author Millard admits that it wasnt Garfield himself that impelled her to write the book but rather what she learned in her research about Alexander Graham Bells relationship to Garfield. After the assassination attempt Bell abandoned everything he was working on to make his top priority developing an induction balance a form of metal detector to locate the bullet in the presidents body. To the author this spoke volumes about Bells respect and admiration for Garfield. Just four months into his presidency, Garfield, on July 2, 1881, was awaiting a train to the seaside resort in New Jersey to join his ailing wife Lucretia. At the D.C. station a frustrated office seeker with a long history of mental problems fired one shot at the president. Left alone Garfield would almost certainly have survived. But once Dr. Willard Bliss applied his archaic treatments, the president was a doomed man. Although acquainted with Listers theory that antiseptics saved lives, Bliss found washing hands and sterilizing instruments a waste of time. Consequently, he repeatedly inserted his dirty finger and germ-laden probes into Garfields wound, causing infections that burrowed tunnels of pus throughout his body. Compounding this medical malpractice were the deplorable conditions of the White House then a vermin-ridden structure with broken sewage pipes. From July until his death in September Garfield endured torture at the hands of his caregivers without complaint. No one can be sure what kind of president he might have become but his character and experience seemed promising. The last president to be born in a log cabin, Garfields early life was one of abject poverty. Rising above it he became a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a reformer who fought for black rights and liberty. On his death bed, in agony, he still did not rage against the dying light but rather expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of sympathy and concern the American people showed B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington The killing of President Garfield him: How kind and thoughtful! What a generous people! From the gallows his deranged assassin made a valid point in saying that he only shot the president. The doctors killed him.

Friday, June 1, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, June 1, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen The Fellowship Hall at Joy Lutheran Church was very full and lively at the Bunco Party on Saturday, May 19. More than 50 people (men and women) attended this event for the purpose of raising money to purchase shoes for Marion County School children who are homeless. The funds raised through a free-will offering will be supplemented 50 cents on the dollar up to a maximum of $500 from the Marion County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. These monies will combine with the money raised at the April 28 Ice Cream Social and will generate approximately $1500 for the purchase of the shoes. It was obvious from the chatter and laughter among these 50 plus people that they were there not only for charity but also to have a good time. If you have never been to a Bunco party (which was my first time) it is a hubbub of noise, social interaction and lots of movement. There were 13 tables with four players at each table. One table was the Head table that rings the bell to signal the start and end of a round. Each time a round is finished the players move to another table. Round one starts when each player rolls the 3 dice to get as many ones as possible. The round ends when the Head table scores 21 points or gets a Bunco which is three of a kind of the number one. The players move to another table with a new partner and the game continues to the next number two, then on up to six. One person at each table keeps the score for the teams and each player has their own score card on which their wins of either a game or a Bunco are tallied. This is just a few of the rules of the game, there are many more to be learned but maybe at the next Bunco encounter. Prizes are awarded either in the form of cash that the participants contribute or, in this case, in the form of white elephant items that the participants donated. A special gift is given to the player with the top score and one for the player with the lowest score. Everyone will most likely get a gift since there were many donated gifts and the individual name tags had numbers on them which will direct who gets to choose the next gift from the white elephant items. According to the World Bunco Association website, Bunco dates back to the late 1800s when it was introduced into San Francisco during the Gold Rush period. Prior to WWI, Bunco achieved permanent placement as a traditional family or parlor game promoting social interaction. The game has seen resurgence in popularity in the United States, with a reported 27 million people playing regularly in 2006. Bunco is a social dice game involving 100 percent luck, requiring little decision making skill with simple scoring and set of rules. So if you can roll 3 dice and count to six you can play Bunco.

The a cappella doo-wop quartet Blend will perform their concert Forever Doo Wop A Tribute to the s and s on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ocala Civic Theatre. Formed in 2005, Blend is a touring group from Illinois. Evan Boswell, John Estes, Eric Rudd, and Andrew Smith are the four members who bring the songs to life. Though the music is from several generations before their time, they love doo wop, and they clearly love what they do. Blend has opened for a variety of doo wop, country, and gospel acts, including The Platters, Bill Haleys Comets, The Van-Dells, The Drifters, Aaron Tippin, Confederate Railroad, Ivan Parker, and Greater Vision. In 2008 they appeared as special guests at The Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater in Branson, Missouri. Performing music made popular by The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, The Del-Vikings, Elvis Presley, The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Orbison, Otis Redding, The Shirelles, The Coasters, and Ritchie Valens, among many others, Blend has a diverse repertoire. Their concert program features classic songs like Stand By Me, Sittin On the Dock of the Bay, Blue Moon, My Girl, Only the Lonely, At the Hop, Come Go With Me, Dont Be Cruel, Duke of Earl, Get a Job, Goodnight, Sweetheart, In the Still of the Night, Little Bitty Pretty One, Barbara Ann, Book of Love, Runaround Sue, Surfer Girl, Teenager In Love, and This Magic Moment and many more! Paying homage to their Southern gospel heritage, Blend also performs a few hymns and songs such as Beulah Land, Unclouded Day, Amazing Grace, and Ill Fly Away in each concert. Blend is known for having fun at their concerts and making sure the audience does, too. They frequently leave the stage and mingle with the audience, making them feel like theyre part of the show. Before long, the audience is singing along. If you lived through it, Blend will take you back to a time of bobbysoxers, poodle skirts, and blue suede shoes. If not, Blend will make you fall in love with the era and its music either for the first time or all over again!

BRIEFS How do we do that? Civic Theatre to show youDo you ever attend a show at the Ocala Civic Theatre and wonder, How do they do that? We get a lot of questions (and much-appreciated compliments) about how we work our magic to create the fabulous sets, costumes, and props you see at each production. So were inviting you to an Open House and Backstage Tour on Saturday, June 2, from 9 a.m. to noon to show you all (well, most of) our secrets! Back by popular demand, our guided tour will take you behind the scenes to explore the wonderful world of backstage. Join our staff and volunteers as they share a glimpse of how we bring bygone eras to life, create authentic settings, and spin fantasy into reality. In the scene shop, youll see examples of set construction techniques, such as how we turn Styrofoam into what looks like wood paneling, trees, stone, bricks, and more. Our master craftsmen will demonstrate their clever illusions behind our artfully detailed props, and youll learn about sound and lighting tricks as well. In the costume shop, youll be amazed at the thousands of beautiful costumes we have in storage. And, if you saw the show, or will be seeing it soon and would like a preview, this is your chance to get an up-close-and-personal look at the set, props, and costumes created for Fiddler On the Roof. Theres no charge to take the tour, and everyone is welcome to attend. You may just want to look around and satisfy your curiosity, or you might be interested in becoming a volunteer. Either way, we are always happy to have you join us. The Ocala Civic Theatre is at 4337 East Silver Springs Boulevard (East State Road 40) in the Appleton Cultural Center.

Doors open at 5 p.m. with bingo play starting at 7 p.m. A trailer stolen from the Airport Industrial Park was located at a home on Northeast 14th Avenue in Ocala, and that resulted in the re-arrest of Andrew James Weinreich, 21, on charges of grand theft auto. He had been arrested previously for the theft of items from various Walmart stores in the area, including sets of tires. Several of these items were discovered in the trailer when it was opened. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office, photos taken from the theft of the trailer were identified as Weinreich, and deputies went to his home. It was a duplex with a shared backyard, and deputies were able to see what was in the yard. After obtaining a search warrant, they went to the home, where Weinreich was not located. They discovered he had been dropped off at a truck stop at County Road 326 and Interstate 75, and notified patrol officers in that area, who had no trouble locating the suspect and bringing him to the home. Weinreichs father was there and had been served with the search warrant. Weinreich opened the trailer for deputies, and it contained tires and various other materials believed to be stolen. Other trailers were on the property and couldnt be identified, but they were also towed as Ocala Police and Marion County deputies try to locate the owners. Weinreich was booked into the jail for the third time in May, and was held without bond because of the previous arrests. His next court date is arraignment on June 26.

Discovery of trailer taken from area also yields tires Remembering those who gave all PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKThe U.S. Marine Color Guard marches toward a display of crosses and flags at Veterans Memorial Park on Memorial Day. Diana Bennett, a recent graduate of the Air Force Academy, and a graduate of Forest High School, spoke to the crowd. David Reeves was the master of ceremonies.

Conditions in the atmosphere and the ocean favor a near-normal hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin this season, NOAA announced May 24 from Miami at its Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, and home to the Hurricane Research Division. This week is national Hurricane Preparedness Week. For the entire six-month season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center says theres a 70 percent chance of nine to 15 named storms (with top winds of 39 mph or higher), of which four to eight will strengthen to a hurricane (with top winds of 74 mph or higher) and of those one to three will become major hurricanes (with top winds of 111 mph or higher, ranking Category 3, 4 or 5). Based on the period 1981-2010, an average season produces 12 named storms with six hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.
