It begins when hes asked to identify a body because his name was found on the newly murdered man. All of a sudden The past was coming back. All of it. The dead, it seemed, were digging their way out of the ground now. Because as Copeland stares at the corpse the tattoo on the left arm is unmistakable. Twenty years earlier four teenagers at a summer camp broke curfew, walked into the surrounding woods, and vanished. Later only two bodies were found. One of the unaccounted for was Pauls 17-year-old sister Camille. In the morgue the boy who went missing with her is lying on a slab. If he escaped the serial killer, Paul reasons, perhaps his sister did too. Wanting desperately to follow up this new piece of evidence, Paul is nevertheless embroiled in a challenging rape case in which the defendants are privileged frat boys from wealthy families and the victim is a hapless teenage exotic dancer/ prostitute. Their influential parents, determined to see their sons acquitted, begin digging into Pauls past and that of other family members. In the process, shocking and painful secrets long withheld from Copeland himself are revealed. Paul is still grieving the loss of his young wife, dead from cancer, and trying to raise his six-year-old The past comes to life in this story B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington daughter as a single dad. Thus, Paul is challenged on several levels from his shattered beliefs in those hes known all his life to pressure exerted on the outcome of the rape case. Though plot is a greater asset to Coben than character, he does craft a pretty topnotch story, and it wouldnt be right to give too much of it away. It is enough to say that the stoic protagonist refuses to let demons from the past defeat him. A really fast read. THE WOODS By Harlan Coben May 30th celebration Residents of Cherrywood celebrated Memorial Day on the traditional date of May 30. The wreath-laying was part of the event. See the Cherrywood column, Page 13. In a unanimous vote at its Tuesday meeting, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners voted to make recycling in Marion County even more convenient by approving an agreement with Waste Pro of Ocala to provide single-stream recycling at county recycling centers. Single-stream recycling will eliminate the need for county residents to separate items into cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum and other categories before recycling. Citizens will be able to dispose of all items in the same box at county recycling centers. According to the fiveyear contract, Waste Pro of Ocala will be responsible for constructing a regional material recovery facility in Marion County as well as for transportation of the recyclables from county recycling centers to the facility. Marion County will receive 55 percent of the revenue from the sale of the recyclable material. This revenue, combined with cost savings due to the new recycling processes, is anticipated to cover the cost of the expanded services. The city of Ocala recently went to curbside single-stream recycling, and removed all neighborhood recycling centers in the city limits. County residents must now drive to one of the county recycling centers that are open to the public. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Marion County currently ranks tenth out of Floridas 67 counties in a statewide ranking of each countys adjusted recycling rate. Marion County Solid Waste officials hope singlestream recycling will help improve that rate even more. The single-stream recycling program is expected to begin Sept. 1. Recycling gets easier for county residents BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen June 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the Rev. Edward Holloway Jr.s call to be the pastor at Joy Evangelical Lutheran Church as well as marking his 30 years since ordination. The congregation wanted to celebrate this event and held a dinner at the Palm Grove Auditorium in Oak Run on Saturday, June 2. More than 160 members of the congregation attended the dinner with guests Pastor Anna Figuerio, St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Pastor Ashley Nicolls, St Johns Lutheran Church, Summerfield and Pastor Jim Young, Ascension Lutheran Church. Pastor Holloway came from Minnesota, where he received a bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota and his Master of Divinity from Northwestern Lutheran Seminary. He also served in the U.S. Navy. He was a pastor in a small Lutheran church in Monticello, Minnesota from 1982 to 1992 and then senior pastor at Zion Lutheran Church, Cottage Grove, Minnesota for 10 years before coming to Florida. Joy Council President, Jerry Hollnagel greeted everyone to the not so very Surprise Party and thanked all for coming to celebrate a friend, confidant and preacher. Pastor Young gave the invocation to begin the celebration. Sharon Hickman-Besch, Joy Associate in Ministry, Music developed and directed a Musical Toast of Pastor Holloway covering his life events from birth to the present. For his birth, the members were led Joy Lutheran honors pastor Rev. Ed Holloway of Joy Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Y ou may watch the value of your property, home or retirement investment savings struggle in the current economy, and may be wondering about ways to protect your family in the event of an unforeseen event. One option you may not have considered is the purchase of a whole life insurance policy. It may not be something youd automatically turn to, but whole life insurance offers guaranteed 1 death benefit protection in addition to multiple tax advantages and cash value accumulation. Owning a whole life policy can be a great financial alternative, not only for the protection of your loved ones but also a financial option for your living needs. Invest in Your Loved OnesThe primary promise of life insurance, of course, is that your loved ones will be protected in the event of your death. And with a whole life policy, your death benefit is guaranteed,1 whether the payout comes in a matter of years or decades. This is a product that provides protection in the long-term interests of those you care for most, as well as your own peace of mind. Invest in Your FutureBut, what you may not know is that a whole life insurance policy is much more than protection against the unknown. It also provides you with tax-deferred cash value that accumulates over time. In the event of sudden unforeseen or happily anticipated expenses, it provides a readily available source of funds.2 And, in the long run, it can also supplement your retirement income.2 Any kind of financial strategy these days seems fraught with uncertainty, so its important to consider carefully what vehicles work best for your own circumstances.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 W hat is called Golfs Toughest Test returns to The Olympic Club in San Franciso on June 14-17, where it is claimed that the worlds best players will be thoroughly challenged, physically and mentally, by the Lake Course. Here in Pun Alley everyone will be mentally challenged to enjoy some golfing stories. Seniors gameJohn trudged into his house and laid down his golf bag. How was your game? asked his wife, Judy. I was hitting the ball OK, but my eyesights gotten so bad I couldnt see where the ball went. shrugged John Well, youre 79 years old, said Judy. You cant expect everything to be like it was. Why dont you take my brother Jimmy along? But hes 85 and he doesnt even play golf, protested John. But hes got perfect eyesight, Judy pointed out. He can watch the ball for you. So the next day John teed off with Jimmy watching. He swung and the ball disappeared down the fairway. Do you see it, do you see it asked John in anticipation. Yep! Jimmy answered. Well where is it exclaimed John. I forgot, said Jimmy.Par?Henry was playing by himself on a gorgeous clear morning and had just finished the first two holes. On the third he hit a screamer down the middle. He lined up his second with a 3-iron, but shanked it. It hit a tree, ricocheted back, hit him between the eyes and he dropped dead on the fairway. At the Pearly Gates St. Peter asked, Who are you? Henry Chapman. St Peter looked at his clipboard and scratched his head. Ive got no record of you being due; how did you get here? In two. Sort PuttsTwo robbers with clubs went golfing, but they didnt play the fairway. They have just developed a new golf club to be used when you are not sure which club is best. It is called the waffle iron. The reason we never see politicians playing golf is its too much like their work, trapped in one bad lie after another. Frustration in golf is exhibited by using course language. Outdoor lights were recently put up at a golf course for people who like swinging nightclubs. The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you cant see him laughing. Toms son is so good at golf hes been offered a full scholarship to medical school. Sure shot Two detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez. How was he killed? asked one detective. With a golf gun, the other detective replied. A golf gun! What is a golf gun? I dont know. But it sure made a hole in Juan. Smart studentStudent: Let me get this straight. The less I hit the ball, the better I am doing. Pro: Now youve got it! Student: Then why hit it at all? No partnerA guy came home from the golf course and said, Im not playing golf with Bill anymore. His wife asked, Why not? Tell me, would you play with a guy who slices every drive into other fairways, doesnt yell fore when hes shooting near other people, rips up more sod than a bulldozer, loses more balls than he brings, drinks too much, and tells lousy jokes? he asked. f course not, she said. Well, neither will Bill.ProfessionalsA doctor and a lawyer met up in the clubhouse after a round of golf. The doctor said, Hey, hows your golf game these days? Not bad. Im finally shooting in the mid-seventies, said the lawyer. Honestly? the doctor asked. Whats that got to do with it? Who or what? A husband and wife on vacation in Florida decided to visit the local country club for a round of golf. The husband rented clubs for himself and his wife, but the pro shop had only one bag. The wife insisted that the husband go out and play. He was paired with another gentleman. After finishing the seventh hole the husband looked curiously across the green to see his wife and another woman teeing off on the fourth hole. Everything all right? the second guy asked. Oh, sure, said the husband. It seems my wife found an old bag to play with. The guy looked over at the women. Yeah, mine, too. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. U.S. Open golf calls for a trip down Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Read the classifieds in the singing of Jesus Loves Me. Then the Joyful Notes (absent one note) with Linda Aker, Trudy Harrsch and Ann Bellis, accompanied by Ardith Thomas sang Think About His Love for Pastors confirmation. In honor of his years in the Navy, the members all sang Anchors Aweigh. Warren Erickson, marked Pastors marriage in 1970 to Marsha by singing a solo, Youll Never Walk Alone. The Joyful Notes Trio then recognized Pastors seminary years (1979-1982) with a song, Life in Jesus. When Pastor Ed was called to Florida he initially had to move alone so he brought his dog with him for company. So the members all joined in to tease him with the song That Doggie in the Window. Pastor Ed has become known as the piano playing singing pastor which he often does at worship services. Irene Henderson devoted this song to him by singing In My Heart There Rings a Melody. Lynn Barrett, sang a Simple Song for Pastors future life. Finally the Joy vocal choir sang The Lord Bless You for the Benediction. After a delicious meal catered by the Oak Run Caterers, there was a lot of toasting of Pastor Holloway. A member of the original Call Committee said that after interviewing many potential pastors she knew that Rev. Holloway would be the right one just by the way he got out of the car when coming to the interview. The Committee was looking for someone who would be an available minister to his congregation and a good listener and Pastor Ed fit those criteria. One of the Stephen Ministers commended Pastor Ed for his initiative in helping to develop this ministry at Joy. Another said she had learned why Pastor Ed was patient and willing to wait because as he said, God is in control, you wait because it is always in Gods time. Others praised him for helping them through hard times, especially one who had a heart attack and heart surgery. A new member said she was so impressed with how Pastor Ed does so much for a lot of people even when they are not members of the church such as, providing weddings and baptisms. Another praised Pastor Eds inspiring Daily Devotionals on the church website, www.joyocala.org. Pastor Ed was allowed to have the last word at this event. However he had to admit that he was quite overwhelmed by the many positive comments. He thanked his church staff for all their devotion and hard work and especially those who helped to put this event together. He said this was like grace to him and coming to Joy Lutheran Church was truly a gift. JOYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Turner graduated Thursday from North Marion High.

T wo people face charges in connection with the theft of a cell phone. Jonathan Irizarry Colon, 24, of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of grand theft, and Marjorie Gonzalez-Roman, 37, also of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of tampering with evidence. According to deputies, Colon stole the cell phone from a desk counter at a clinic where GonzalezRoman was awaiting treatment. Later, deputies arrived at the home of the couple. As they approached the woman, they heard a noise and she was accused of throwing the disputed cell phone into a drainage culvert. Marion Oaks Utilities was called and the culvert cover was removed for examination. A cell phone was located under a drainage pipe and matched the serial number of the stolen phone. Both suspects were charged. In addition, Colon was charged with violation of probation for a previous offense. Colons bond was $2,000 on the theft charge, but he was held without bond for the probation violation. Gonzalez-Roman was released on $5,000 bond. Hector HernandezAcosta, 31, of Northeast 40th Place, was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped for traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of West State Road 40 in the 5200 block. He produced an ID from Honduras, and failed the field sobriety test. He was taken to jail and his breath registered at .221 and .227, nearly three times the legal limit. Michael W. Hunter Jr., 27, of Northwest 21st Place, was accused of tampering with evidence and drug possession less than 20 grams. A deputy was trying to make a traffic stop of Hunters vehicle on State Road 200 in the 7000 block for going 60 mph in a 50 mph zone. The deputy said he observed the driver throw a small bag out of the drivers window. The deputy said he could smell marijuana when he made the stop. Hunter was charged, and also given a warning for driving unknowingly while his license was suspended. A Florida Highlands woman was accused of stealing from a man whose house she was cleaning. Khrishawnnah Lee Young, 38, of Southwest 157th Lane, allegedly took a ring and pawned it. Deputies found that Young had pawned the ring at the 14 Karat Gold Center in a car wash in the 9500 block of State Road 200.

Two accused in case of cell phone theft COP SHOP Burn ban lifted The Marion County Multi-agency Wildland Task Force lifted its voluntary burn ban on Monday during a meeting at Marion County Fire Rescue Headquarters. The voluntary ban was implemented in April when drought conditions across the county began to worsen. However, rain brought by tropical storms Alberto and Beryl over the past few weeks significantly reduced wildfire concerns. As of Monday, the drought index reported a county average of 227 on a scale of 0 to 800, which is well below the severe drought range that begins at 700. In contrast, when the voluntary burn ban was implemented, the drought index registered as high as 651 in some areas. 000BP0I TOP REASONS TO REMOVE TREES They are dead or diseased They are causing property damage Storm damage Construction Liability & maintenance issues WHY GRIND STUMPS?

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com The Right Choices For the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information. T his is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled or have already been held for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were second-graders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high PUBLISHER : GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

O nce again this week, we marked the anniversary of a very special day in the annals of American History. On June 6, 68 years ago, Allied troops began the assault on the beaches of Normandy, the invasion that would eventually lead to the end of World War II in Europe. Thousands were killed storming those beaches, but thousands of others made it through and marched into the French countryside, eventually taking charge of what had been German strongholds. Each year there are fewer and fewer D-Day survivors who are around to remember the brutal days that started by setting sail from England. The Americans who fought in World War II and took part in the great crusade against the Germans and Japanese have been called the Greatest Generation. History views these fighters favorably, rightly giving them credit for saving the freedom of Europe, if not the world. Those of us who are enjoying the benefits of that freedom should never forget the role these brave souls played in keeping the world free. Maybe some out there lost relatives in that invasion, and know personally the sacrifices that were made. Many still remember. Those Honor Flights to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II memorial have brought back memories for the veterans who have made the trip. Indeed, all those who have flown on those Honor Flights are asked to gather to be honored at Veterans Park next week, Thursday, June 14 at 10 a.m. Its just another fitting tribute for those who fought bravely in the war. So take a moment to remember the heroes. And lets always keep alive the memory of June 6, 1944.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remember D-Day and the veterans Annual message to the graduates LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jackie Porter tells her side of the storyI write this letter asking you to consider helping me get my side of the story out to your readers. The Star-Banner continually attacks me in their editorials. They allow letters to the editor that are lies and they do not fact check the content. I will not be bullied by their relentless smearing of my name, and will not retreat. At age 25, in 1984, I had a vision and opened my first retail plant nursery and garden center. I did not marry into the business (I married in 1981) I sold my personal car for the down payment for the first Porters store property, there was no Porter family fortune. I stood up against the big box stores for 20 years, sold my interest in the business when it was still thriving, and I retired. I am truly a business person with hard work ethics, honesty and integrity. My customer service was top notch, my employees trusted and respected me. The school system should be run the same way not by a sword and not with fear of retaliation. Students, parents, employees and taxpayers should be heard and their ideas and solutions taken into consideration. I have exposed the waste of taxpayers money, most identified to me by stakeholders (employees and taxpayers). I do listen and take action. I have stood up for the taxpayers, children and employees during my four-year term as an elected School Board member, and for doing so been demonized. I will fund the needs of our classrooms first. My three opponents are current six-figure salaried school administrators who have a combined 70 years employed with Marion County Public schools, taking home week after week a pay check from you. They still do not have the right formula for educating our students. Marion County Public Schools rank 44th out of 67 school districts, this is unacceptable. We have the opportunity to take back our school system. I am not status quo. I was not status quo in the retail world of big box stores but I succeeded and, with the community, we will succeed in educating our children to their fullest potential and reach my goal to be in the top 20 school districts in the state. Our children deserve it, our community deserves it. I need your vote in the Republican primary for Superintendent of Schools, on Aug. 14. You will not be disappointed. Jackie PorterSex-selection abortionAmericas liberal faction has crossed the Rubicon and taken a decisive, irrevocable step which reveals forever their lack of concern for women of any age Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like selfstarter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these students steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the students who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computerchair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done. Congratulations!

It lays open the hypocrisy of the liberal feminism movement whose doctrine pretends to advocate for womens rights. It reveals their real goal, population control: Abort more unborn female babies which equals less women to bear more children. This is not a new objective but one that has been in operation for decades, albeit carefully disguised for public consumption. Targeting unborn females for abortion is nothing new in the USA, but until the recent public exposure of Planned Parenthoods gender-specific abortions, it was not widely known by the public.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com that the number of female births are much lower than male births reported in earlier statistics. These lower female births are in direct contrast to past reports which showed opposite numbers. Planned Parenthood and other such abortion organizations are not concerned whether they abort males or females they care only about the funding that abortion brings. However, these abortionists welcome another reason for parents to abort their children, and sex-selection abortions add to the category of reasons. Planned Parenthood is a leader in advising parents how to time sonograms to determine the gender of the unborn for purposes of positively producing a male child. Gender of the unborn can be determined by sonogram at about five months gestation but now sonogram is not the only means of determining gender now the mothers blood can be tested early in the pregnancy to determine gender. This is a recent discovery which will enable even larger numbers of unborn females to be aborted. Why is the public so shocked at the discovery of sex-selection abortion? It is completely within the despicable law known as Roe vs. Wade. Parents can abort their unborn chilLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 dren at any stage of gestation, for any reason, or for no reason at all. Shouldnt we have known that there would be parents with no personal, moral, or social ethics who would prefer designing their own child using abortion as the tool of preference? The killing of baby girls by abortion or at birth is pervasive in China due to the One Child policy and a preference for sons. We have often heard pro-abortion American politicians denounce China for its extreme population control program while at the same time these same politicians support and promote abortion in their own country. Now these same politicians are supporting and promoting sex-selection abortions in the USA as if it is a normal part of life and their political agenda. The Congressional Democrats recently voted down what would have been a ban on sex-selection abortions. These Democratic supporters of targeted abortion of females publicly stated that this bill to ban sex-selection abortions is the latest tactic in the War on Women. Are these politicians brain damaged or are they hoping that the public is brain dead? What is pro-woman about killing a baby girl simply because she is female? President Obama who fathered two daughters himself has promoted and supported abortion during his entire public life. He is now revealing extreme discrimination against women by supporting the killing of baby girls simply because they are female. This is barbaric activity and has no place in civilized society. This has passed beyond civilization into moral decadence. Is this the tipping point in America for abortion? In recent years reliable polling has shown that more than half the citizens in the USA are pro-life and against abortion at any stage for any reason. Is this newly revealed sex-selection abortion the incentive that will spur those who are undecided to take a stand for life? May it be so. Mabel Ryan President, Life Education Ministry, Inc. Fusion CentersDo not take my word. Check it out for yourself. Several times Glenn Beck has aired a video of a person describing how they (those who mean to take over) plan to eliminate the 75 percent of the population they deem surplus, using injections of germs, or viruses. Pipe dream? Apparently not. My take on the video was some kind of kook, not any longer. This is the real thing Jesse Ventura, has a video on Youtube, dealing with Fusion Centers (concentration camps,) FEMA Camps. Enter: The True Facts about FEMA Camps Youtube. 44 minutes. Halliburton did the construction, and they are stocked with injections, and coffins. Rows and rows of plastic coffins. Staggering. See them for yourself. Everyone is vying for the big prize: America. Will we be swallowed by the socialists, communists, globalists, or Jihadists? We are very popular. Shock of shocks. The ACLU is questioning the purpose of these Fusion Centers. Jessie Ventura is not the only one who is concerned about them. When both sides are suspicious, something must be afoot Any of these options appeal to you? I opt out of any of these alternatives. I opt for liberty. I like it. A lot. D.I. Larson Oak Run: no walkingI want to commend and support Decca for not allowing walking on the boulevard. My wife and I have been living in Oak Run for over 14 years and have walked the roads of Oak Run to the amount of 20,000 miles, and have witnessed many close calls on the boulevard.

Yogi Andrew Spotlight on Excellence Each week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who might have an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the lives of the people in our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Howard and Arlene Mayberry. Howard and Arlene were both born and raised in Decatur, Illinois. Howard was one of eight children. His father worked maintenance in some of the major factories located in the town and in spite of his long hours, the children were no stranger to poverty. In 1951, the Korean War was in progress and Howard left school at the ripe old age of 17 to join the U.S. Army. Basic Training and Advanced Training were a treat for the young man as it was the first time he had new clothes on his back and access to the all you can eat buffets that Uncle Sam provided. Immediately following his training, he received orders for Korea. He jokingly tells how he protested to his 1st Sergeant that he couldnt go to Korea because he was only 17. The reply he got was either go to Korea or go to jail for 10 years. Naturally, Howard went to Korea. Trained in heavy equipment mechanics, while Howard served for nearly a year and a half in Korea, he was awarded four Bronze Stars and the Syngman Rhee Medal. Grateful to be alive, he returned home and was discharged in 1954. Following his discharge from the service, Howard took a job at a munitions plant in Decatur. He caught the eye of a young girl who also worked the line there by the name of Arlene. She was enchanted with his full head of blond hair. When she maneuvered to get him to ask her out, he went to her house and was told by her mother, Oh, youre the one she talks about all the time. Eight months later, they were on their way to Corinth, Mississippi, to get married. No waiting period was required in Mississippi at the time and since the couple had no desire for a big wedding, heading to Corinth made total sense. Upon their return to Decatur, Howard took a job with the Mueller Company, a firm that manufactured valves for gas and water equipment. Starting in the maintaining and operating of the heavy machinery, he worked his way up to tool & die maker after five years. He stayed with that company for a total of 40 years until his retirement. Music had always been a part of Howards life. He began singing as a child and after getting out of the service; he picked up a guitar and learned to play. His talent and hard work paid off and soon he had a band playing in all of the honkytonks and clubs in the Decatur area. Making extra money for his family and developing some heavy duty contacts, soon he was associated with Wanda Jackson. Wanda is a country singer of major note and is a kissing cousin to Howard. While socializing, Howard and Wanda were playing and singing together for a few friends when they noticed that the crowd was over flowing their house. A close bond between the two has prevailed ever since. Back in the sixties, within a few months of being with Wanda, Howard and his band were opening for many acts including George Jones; Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins and Ferlin Husky. He appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and was offered the opportunity to travel with Roy Clark on tour. Howard has always loved his music, but he loved his family more. At the time, he had a young daughter, Julie, and his beautiful wife Arlene. His employment at the plant was steady and paid well so he choose to stay near home and not go on the road. Years later, when Howard met up with Roy again, he reminded him of their conversation. Roy told Howard, You made the right choice, and Howard had to agree. Since those early days, many things have changed. Arlene and Howard have raised three children; Julie, Howard Junior and Carol. Howard Junior is carrying on the family musical tradition in Nashville where he owns his own studio and is a drummer with his own band. For 57 years Howard and Arlene have been happily married and in their own words, Richly blessed by God. Along with three children, they enjoy six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Howards Mother is 102 years of age which has been an added blessing to them. Howard continues to perform at parties and other limited engagements bringing joy and music to many people along the way. Arlene has supported his efforts throughout their life and on a trip to Corinth 40 years after their marriage, she received a special gift. They returned to the courthouse where they had received their marriage license and in front of the staff, Howard sang I Love You More and More Every Day to Arlene. There were no dry eyes in the house that day. Active bowlers, fishermen and travelers, Arlene and Howard are pleased to be living in Cherrywood where they are surrounded by scores of friends and the active life style. Everyone who knows them appreciates their sense of humor, generosity, loyalty and warmth. While they consider themselves richly blessed, Cherrywood and their friends are blessed to have them as residents. From Your Reporter:Much to my embarrassment, occasionally I get some facts wrong in my articles. An example of this occurred in last weeks Spotlight column. In that issue I stated that Sandra Brotherhoods Mom was deceased. I am pleased to say that Phyllis Yagnesak is alive and well living with her sister at Hardwood Trails. May I express my sincere apologies to Phyllis; Sandra; Bill and any one else who was inconvenienced by my error. While I try hard to get all the information straight in this column, sometimes I make a mistake. This was a big one and I am truly sorry.If there is anything you would like to see covered in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com W hen we were an agrarian nation, the vision of comfortable retirement was a rocking chair on the front porch of a house without a mortgage. With industrialization came the illusory three-legged stool. For decades after World War II, financial advisers touted the mythical stool as the perfect plan on which to base a secure old age a defined-benefit pension, Social Security, and personal savings. To attract and keep employees, companies promoted their defined-benefit plans. They also touted their generous matching contributions to Social Security, which many companies used as an offset in pension payout calculations a doubleduty leg which giveth and taketh back. Before federal regulation of pension plans, small companies which wanted to provide an affordable retirement benefit to employees would often start with a money-purchase plan. The company would deposit a modest percentage of annual wages (say 5 percent) into an individual account for each employee. Some money-purchase plans allowed employee contributions; most did not. Some also had a profit-sharing feature, a performance incentive which might add two or three percent to employee accounts. Employees liked the idea of having real money accounts in their own names. Unlike defined-benefit plans which were available to public employees and unionized workers, participants in money purchase plans had no idea how much their accounts would be worth at retirement or how to invest the funds to last for the rest of their lives. Many years ago we witnessed the down side of a money purchase plan. The first employee to retire had the bad fortune to exit at a time when the stock market was in steep decline. His fund was barely what the company had contributed during his years of employment. All the investment earnings had disappeared. Around the time Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in 1974, companies began considering how they could discontinue the long-term financial obligations of defined-benefit plans. Since 1990 two-thirds of defined-benefit plans have disappeared. In their place are individual retirement accounts 401Ks, 403Bs, and IRAs all of which are similar to money-purchase plans. Employees and employers contribute significant sums to 401Ks and 403Bs, but the risk of loss is on the employees. Outside of government and unionized employment, defined benefit plans have all but disappeared. Personal savings, including home ownership, have taken a beating. And Social Securitys long-term performance is uncertain. Is it possible to build another threelegged stool? There are books and speakers who say yes, but the time to start is in your 20s. All three legs have to be built from your own savings, divided into three parts, assuming you can find a job and pay off your student loans before your turn 50. For those of us not in our 20s, hang on to the house until its value rises to what it was in 2007. Avoid paying taxes by all legal means. Buy an annuity. Find a job and keep working until youre 90. If youre fired, sue your employer for age discrimination. Retirement without a leg to sit on Jim Flynn Columnist COMMENTARY I would agree with the idea that religion comes in all shapes, sizes and temperaments. It is quite obvious that sanity is not a prerequisite of religion. If it were, most religions would go out of business within the 30-day money back guarantee period. Every religion has some sort of litmus test for faith. It is in this area of religion that smacks so loudly of insanity. Superstition, regardless of the basis, is one great common denominator of all religion. It is not that I mind superstition; I just do not want it associated with my religion. I read in the newspaper headlines just this week a pastor was killed by a rattlesnake bite. I had almost forgotten this sort of thing went on in our sophisticated, enlightened world. As a young preacher, I was visiting a congregation in Kentucky as the guest speaker for that Sunday. Never mind the town or the church that is beside the point. I got to the church a little early and was escorted around the church looking at the facilities. Then they took me into the sanctuary where I could look at the pulpit and the sanctuary where I would be preaching. Being the observant person that I am, I noticed a basket next to the pulpit. I had never seen such a basket before. I really did not know too much about the church and now I cannot remember exactly why I was invited to preach there. Be that as it may, I was greatly curious about the basket next to the pulpit. I did not know if it was a wastebasket or if perhaps it was the offering basket and the congregation would fill it up before the service was over. So, I ask my host what the basket was next to the pulpit. Thats where we keep the rattlesnake, he said rather passively. Say what! That basket there is where we keep the rattlesnake that we use in our service. I can take a joke and give it a joke back with the best of them. I responded with a hearty laugh. Ha, Ha, Ha, I said good-naturedly. Really, what is that basket for? I could see my host was not the least bit amused with my persistent inquiry. I said, he said rather sternly, thats where we keep our rattlesnake for our church service. He then stared at me for a few moments and then said, I dont think well need it in our service today. You dont look like you have enough faith. Inside me, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. There is a time when I want to bolster my faith, but in the circumstance before me, I did not want enough faith to handle some rattlesnake. One of the tenants of my religion is to run as fast as I can away from any and all rattlesnakes. It is one part of my religion I take rather seriously. My host tried explaining to me what was going on. He pointed to a passage in Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My first reaction was to think he was pulling the wool over my eyes, so to speak, and I almost laughed out loud. I caught myself in time when I realized this man was serious. According to him, he could have enough faith in God to pick up the poisonous rattlesnake and if it bit him, it would not hurt him at all. According to their religion, when they are truly in the Spirit, they have the power to pick up a poisonous rattlesnake, and if it bites you, it will not hurt you. They keep the basket containing a rattlesnake in the front of the church for when such an occasion arises. I was hoping it would not arise during my time in the pulpit. All during my sermon, I could not help casting a wistful eye in the general direction of the basket next to the pulpit. At one point, I thought I did see the basket move. I yelled at this point, which excited the congregation thinking I had gotten in the spirit, and then everybody cast a wistful eye in the direction of the basket. I respect other peoples views on everything, I suppose. However, there are some things I have difficulty wrapping my tired Snake, rattle and roll in the aisles O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder brain around. This has to be one of them. How you can pull the bit about the rattlesnake out of that verse of Scripture and ignore the rest of it is really beyond me. Religion will make you do many silly things that have no sanity behind them. Many people just go through the motions not really knowing why they are doing what they are doing. At least the snake handlers have a little bit of excitement in their services. Nothing I want to experience, but then who am I to criticize. I rest my faith upon the Scripture. Particularly, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith keeps me away from poisonous rattlesnakes. The Rev. James L.

Unfortunately, the side chairs were showing the wear and tear of that popularity. As always, there are some creative and willing volunteers ready to step up and fix a problem. Thanks to Holly and Dave Bragdon; Eve and Jim Houghtaling and Bonnie Clark who, with the support and cooperation of Cherrywood Property Management, stepped up and gave the chairs a brand new look. Our mens and womens pool teams will be proud to show off the newly reupholstered red and green chairs to the many visiting teams from venues such as Palm Cay; Oak Run and OTOW. Pool matches are always fun and competitive and our teams would like nothing more than to have their opponents sitting in the newly recovered chairs as much as possible during the games. Seriously, all of the pool players and spectators should be very grateful to these hard working volunteers for their time and talent. Youre invited to come down and enjoy a pool game; check out the chairs and when youre there, be sure to say Thank you to these dedicated workers. Bocce Ball There will be no Bocce Ball on Saturday, June 9 due to our Days of Summer celebration. Bocce will return on June 16 at 8 p.m. for the enjoyment of all.

Just come on out and enjoy a down home evening of great entertainment; excellent food and fun fellowship as we celebrate summer at Cherrywood! Record turnoutNearly 150 residents and guests attended the Cherrywood Veterans Club celebration of Memorial Day on May 30. This was the largest number in Cherrywoods history and no one was disappointed. Under the direction of Jerry Moscariello, the Color Guard presented the colors and saluted each branch of the military. Major Morrey Deen inspired the crowd with his speech which outlined the sacrifices made by our service personnel. He also shared the pride he feels for his son who is currently serving in Afghanistan. Major Deen is not only retired from the U.S. Army but also is the retired chief of police of Ocala. His life has been spent in public service and Cherrywood was honored to have him with us. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar read a letter from the 7-year-old grandson of residents Elaine and Eugene Wachsmuth, Xavier. His letter reflected on what Memorial Day means to him. His words touched the assembly and proved that yet another generation is learning about the sacrifices made by previous generations and the true price of freedom. Mahar and Deen placed a wreath at the monument in front of the clubhouse as bugler Peter Axson of the Kingdom of the Sun Band sounded Taps. Silence wrapped itself around the crowd gathered there, broken only when the Color Guard passed in review. A highlight of the service was the unveiling of a beautiful plaque containing the names of Cherrywood Veterans Club members who have passed away over the years. Many of their widows were present to receive a red rose which was given to them by Ruth Hurley as her husband, Richard, read the names and branches of service of those departed. Cherrywood Property Management and Chris Zacco donated the plaque. In addition, a special place has been designated for its display in the clubhouse. The Cherrywood Veterans Club expresses its deep gratitude to Chris for both. Immediately following the service, lunch was served by the many volunteers from the Veterans Club and its Auxiliary. Fred and Jay OHern directed the kitchen staff as hamburgers and hot dogs were cooked on the outdoor grill by another group of volunteers headed up by Bill Brotherhood. At two in the afternoon, the cage containing all the entries for the Bahamas Cruise Raffle began to spin. Travel agent Laura Kane spoke briefly about her involvement and assistance in putting together the cruise and her pride in helping the Veterans. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn was kind enough to draw the winning ticket and as luck would have it, the winners were actually in attendance. Monica and John Whitenton of Oak Run, previously residents of Cherrywood, came forward to accept the tickets and $100 in additional spending money. The two of them will be headed to the Bahamas for a threeday cruise. The drawings continued for door prizes and 50/50 winners. Our own DJ, Rich Becotte played the music for the Memorial Day Service outside and then fired up songs in the clubhouse as people ate and enjoyed the atmosphere of friendship and gratitude to our fallen heroes. He played a wide variety of music of the season including selections from The Stage Door Canteen, Songs that Won the War and many, many more. The Cherrywood Veterans Club is grateful for all Country Under the Sun is theme for summer months C HERRYWOOD ESTATES J E John Everlove Morrey Deen and Bill Mahar.

Just come on out and enjoy a down home evening of great entertainment; excellent food and fun fellowship as we celebrate summer at Cherrywood! Record turnoutNearly 150 residents and guests attended the Cherrywood Veterans Club celebration of Memorial Day on May 30. This was the largest number in Cherrywoods history and no one was disappointed. Under the direction of Jerry Moscariello, the Color Guard presented the colors and saluted each branch of the military. Major Morrey Deen inspired the crowd with his speech which outlined the sacrifices made by our service personnel. He also shared the pride he feels for his son who is currently serving in Afghanistan. Major Deen is not only retired from the U.S. Army but also is the retired chief of police of Ocala. His life has been spent in public service and Cherrywood was honored to have him with us. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar read a letter from the 7-year-old grandson of residents Elaine and Eugene Wachsmuth, Xavier. His letter reflected on what Memorial Day means to him. His words touched the assembly and proved that yet another generation is learning about the sacrifices made by previous generations and the true price of freedom. Mahar and Deen placed a wreath at the monument in front of the clubhouse as bugler Peter Axson of the Kingdom of the Sun Band sounded Taps. Silence wrapped itself around the crowd gathered there, broken only when the Color Guard passed in review. A highlight of the service was the unveiling of a beautiful plaque containing the names of Cherrywood Veterans Club members who have passed away over the years. Many of their widows were present to receive a red rose which was given to them by Ruth Hurley as her husband, Richard, read the names and branches of service of those departed. Cherrywood Property Management and Chris Zacco donated the plaque. In addition, a special place has been designated for its display in the clubhouse. The Cherrywood Veterans Club expresses its deep gratitude to Chris for both. Immediately following the service, lunch was served by the many volunteers from the Veterans Club and its Auxiliary. Fred and Jay OHern directed the kitchen staff as hamburgers and hot dogs were cooked on the outdoor grill by another group of volunteers headed up by Bill Brotherhood. At two in the afternoon, the cage containing all the entries for the Bahamas Cruise Raffle began to spin. Travel agent Laura Kane spoke briefly about her involvement and assistance in putting together the cruise and her pride in helping the Veterans. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn was kind enough to draw the winning ticket and as luck would have it, the winners were actually in attendance. Monica and John Whitenton of Oak Run, previously residents of Cherrywood, came forward to accept the tickets and $100 in additional spending money. The two of them will be headed to the Bahamas for a threeday cruise. The drawings continued for door prizes and 50/50 winners. Our own DJ, Rich Becotte played the music for the Memorial Day Service outside and then fired up songs in the clubhouse as people ate and enjoyed the atmosphere of friendship and gratitude to our fallen heroes. He played a wide variety of music of the season including selections from The Stage Door Canteen, Songs that Won the War and many, many more. The Cherrywood Veterans Club is grateful for all Country Under the Sun is theme for summer months C HERRYWOOD ESTATES J E John Everlove Morrey Deen and Bill Mahar.

Thanks to Holly and Dave Bragdon; Eve and Jim Houghtaling and Bonnie Clark who, with the support and cooperation of Cherrywood Property Management, stepped up and gave the chairs a brand new look. Our mens and womens pool teams will be proud to show off the newly reupholstered red and green chairs to the many visiting teams from venues such as Palm Cay; Oak Run and OTOW. Pool matches are always fun and competitive and our teams would like nothing more than to have their opponents sitting in the newly recovered chairs as much as possible during the games. Seriously, all of the pool players and spectators should be very grateful to these hard working volunteers for their time and talent. Youre invited to come down and enjoy a pool game; check out the chairs and when youre there, be sure to say Thank you to these dedicated workers.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com W hen we were an agrarian nation, the vision of comfortable retirement was a rocking chair on the front porch of a house without a mortgage. With industrialization came the illusory three-legged stool. For decades after World War II, financial advisers touted the mythical stool as the perfect plan on which to base a secure old age a defined-benefit pension, Social Security, and personal savings. To attract and keep employees, companies promoted their defined-benefit plans. They also touted their generous matching contributions to Social Security, which many companies used as an offset in pension payout calculations a doubleduty leg which giveth and taketh back. Before federal regulation of pension plans, small companies which wanted to provide an affordable retirement benefit to employees would often start with a money-purchase plan. The company would deposit a modest percentage of annual wages (say 5 percent) into an individual account for each employee. Some money-purchase plans allowed employee contributions; most did not. Some also had a profit-sharing feature, a performance incentive which might add two or three percent to employee accounts. Employees liked the idea of having real money accounts in their own names. Unlike defined-benefit plans which were available to public employees and unionized workers, participants in money purchase plans had no idea how much their accounts would be worth at retirement or how to invest the funds to last for the rest of their lives. Many years ago we witnessed the down side of a money purchase plan. The first employee to retire had the bad fortune to exit at a time when the stock market was in steep decline. His fund was barely what the company had contributed during his years of employment. All the investment earnings had disappeared. Around the time Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in 1974, companies began considering how they could discontinue the long-term financial obligations of defined-benefit plans. Since 1990 two-thirds of defined-benefit plans have disappeared. In their place are individual retirement accounts 401Ks, 403Bs, and IRAs all of which are similar to money-purchase plans. Employees and employers contribute significant sums to 401Ks and 403Bs, but the risk of loss is on the employees. Outside of government and unionized employment, defined benefit plans have all but disappeared. Personal savings, including home ownership, have taken a beating. And Social Securitys long-term performance is uncertain. Is it possible to build another threelegged stool? There are books and speakers who say yes, but the time to start is in your 20s. All three legs have to be built from your own savings, divided into three parts, assuming you can find a job and pay off your student loans before your turn 50. For those of us not in our 20s, hang on to the house until its value rises to what it was in 2007. Avoid paying taxes by all legal means. Buy an annuity. Find a job and keep working until youre 90. If youre fired, sue your employer for age discrimination. Retirement without a leg to sit on Jim Flynn Columnist COMMENTARY I would agree with the idea that religion comes in all shapes, sizes and temperaments. It is quite obvious that sanity is not a prerequisite of religion. If it were, most religions would go out of business within the 30-day money back guarantee period. Every religion has some sort of litmus test for faith. It is in this area of religion that smacks so loudly of insanity. Superstition, regardless of the basis, is one great common denominator of all religion. It is not that I mind superstition; I just do not want it associated with my religion. I read in the newspaper headlines just this week a pastor was killed by a rattlesnake bite. I had almost forgotten this sort of thing went on in our sophisticated, enlightened world. As a young preacher, I was visiting a congregation in Kentucky as the guest speaker for that Sunday. Never mind the town or the church that is beside the point. I got to the church a little early and was escorted around the church looking at the facilities. Then they took me into the sanctuary where I could look at the pulpit and the sanctuary where I would be preaching. Being the observant person that I am, I noticed a basket next to the pulpit. I had never seen such a basket before. I really did not know too much about the church and now I cannot remember exactly why I was invited to preach there. Be that as it may, I was greatly curious about the basket next to the pulpit. I did not know if it was a wastebasket or if perhaps it was the offering basket and the congregation would fill it up before the service was over. So, I ask my host what the basket was next to the pulpit. Thats where we keep the rattlesnake, he said rather passively. Say what! That basket there is where we keep the rattlesnake that we use in our service. I can take a joke and give it a joke back with the best of them. I responded with a hearty laugh. Ha, Ha, Ha, I said good-naturedly. Really, what is that basket for? I could see my host was not the least bit amused with my persistent inquiry. I said, he said rather sternly, thats where we keep our rattlesnake for our church service. He then stared at me for a few moments and then said, I dont think well need it in our service today. You dont look like you have enough faith. Inside me, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. There is a time when I want to bolster my faith, but in the circumstance before me, I did not want enough faith to handle some rattlesnake. One of the tenants of my religion is to run as fast as I can away from any and all rattlesnakes. It is one part of my religion I take rather seriously. My host tried explaining to me what was going on. He pointed to a passage in Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My first reaction was to think he was pulling the wool over my eyes, so to speak, and I almost laughed out loud. I caught myself in time when I realized this man was serious. According to him, he could have enough faith in God to pick up the poisonous rattlesnake and if it bit him, it would not hurt him at all. According to their religion, when they are truly in the Spirit, they have the power to pick up a poisonous rattlesnake, and if it bites you, it will not hurt you. They keep the basket containing a rattlesnake in the front of the church for when such an occasion arises. I was hoping it would not arise during my time in the pulpit. All during my sermon, I could not help casting a wistful eye in the general direction of the basket next to the pulpit. At one point, I thought I did see the basket move. I yelled at this point, which excited the congregation thinking I had gotten in the spirit, and then everybody cast a wistful eye in the direction of the basket. I respect other peoples views on everything, I suppose. However, there are some things I have difficulty wrapping my tired Snake, rattle and roll in the aisles O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder brain around. This has to be one of them. How you can pull the bit about the rattlesnake out of that verse of Scripture and ignore the rest of it is really beyond me. Religion will make you do many silly things that have no sanity behind them. Many people just go through the motions not really knowing why they are doing what they are doing. At least the snake handlers have a little bit of excitement in their services. Nothing I want to experience, but then who am I to criticize. I rest my faith upon the Scripture. Particularly, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith keeps me away from poisonous rattlesnakes. The Rev. James L.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com that the number of female births are much lower than male births reported in earlier statistics. These lower female births are in direct contrast to past reports which showed opposite numbers. Planned Parenthood and other such abortion organizations are not concerned whether they abort males or females they care only about the funding that abortion brings. However, these abortionists welcome another reason for parents to abort their children, and sex-selection abortions add to the category of reasons. Planned Parenthood is a leader in advising parents how to time sonograms to determine the gender of the unborn for purposes of positively producing a male child. Gender of the unborn can be determined by sonogram at about five months gestation but now sonogram is not the only means of determining gender now the mothers blood can be tested early in the pregnancy to determine gender. This is a recent discovery which will enable even larger numbers of unborn females to be aborted. Why is the public so shocked at the discovery of sex-selection abortion? It is completely within the despicable law known as Roe vs. Wade. Parents can abort their unborn chilLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 dren at any stage of gestation, for any reason, or for no reason at all. Shouldnt we have known that there would be parents with no personal, moral, or social ethics who would prefer designing their own child using abortion as the tool of preference? The killing of baby girls by abortion or at birth is pervasive in China due to the One Child policy and a preference for sons. We have often heard pro-abortion American politicians denounce China for its extreme population control program while at the same time these same politicians support and promote abortion in their own country. Now these same politicians are supporting and promoting sex-selection abortions in the USA as if it is a normal part of life and their political agenda. The Congressional Democrats recently voted down what would have been a ban on sex-selection abortions. These Democratic supporters of targeted abortion of females publicly stated that this bill to ban sex-selection abortions is the latest tactic in the War on Women. Are these politicians brain damaged or are they hoping that the public is brain dead? What is pro-woman about killing a baby girl simply because she is female? President Obama who fathered two daughters himself has promoted and supported abortion during his entire public life. He is now revealing extreme discrimination against women by supporting the killing of baby girls simply because they are female. This is barbaric activity and has no place in civilized society. This has passed beyond civilization into moral decadence. Is this the tipping point in America for abortion? In recent years reliable polling has shown that more than half the citizens in the USA are pro-life and against abortion at any stage for any reason. Is this newly revealed sex-selection abortion the incentive that will spur those who are undecided to take a stand for life? May it be so. Mabel Ryan President, Life Education Ministry, Inc. Fusion CentersDo not take my word. Check it out for yourself. Several times Glenn Beck has aired a video of a person describing how they (those who mean to take over) plan to eliminate the 75 percent of the population they deem surplus, using injections of germs, or viruses. Pipe dream? Apparently not. My take on the video was some kind of kook, not any longer. This is the real thing Jesse Ventura, has a video on Youtube, dealing with Fusion Centers (concentration camps,) FEMA Camps. Enter: The True Facts about FEMA Camps Youtube. 44 minutes. Halliburton did the construction, and they are stocked with injections, and coffins. Rows and rows of plastic coffins. Staggering. See them for yourself. Everyone is vying for the big prize: America. Will we be swallowed by the socialists, communists, globalists, or Jihadists? We are very popular. Shock of shocks. The ACLU is questioning the purpose of these Fusion Centers. Jessie Ventura is not the only one who is concerned about them. When both sides are suspicious, something must be afoot Any of these options appeal to you? I opt out of any of these alternatives. I opt for liberty. I like it. A lot. D.I. Larson Oak Run: no walkingI want to commend and support Decca for not allowing walking on the boulevard. My wife and I have been living in Oak Run for over 14 years and have walked the roads of Oak Run to the amount of 20,000 miles, and have witnessed many close calls on the boulevard. Im thrilled that Decca did this before there is a bad accident. There are many roads in Oak Run where we can walk and be safe. Yogi Andrew Spotlight on Excellence Each week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who might have an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the lives of the people in our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Howard and Arlene Mayberry. Howard and Arlene were both born and raised in Decatur, Illinois. Howard was one of eight children. His father worked maintenance in some of the major factories located in the town and in spite of his long hours, the children were no stranger to poverty. In 1951, the Korean War was in progress and Howard left school at the ripe old age of 17 to join the U.S. Army. Basic Training and Advanced Training were a treat for the young man as it was the first time he had new clothes on his back and access to the all you can eat buffets that Uncle Sam provided. Immediately following his training, he received orders for Korea. He jokingly tells how he protested to his 1st Sergeant that he couldnt go to Korea because he was only 17. The reply he got was either go to Korea or go to jail for 10 years. Naturally, Howard went to Korea. Trained in heavy equipment mechanics, while Howard served for nearly a year and a half in Korea, he was awarded four Bronze Stars and the Syngman Rhee Medal. Grateful to be alive, he returned home and was discharged in 1954. Following his discharge from the service, Howard took a job at a munitions plant in Decatur. He caught the eye of a young girl who also worked the line there by the name of Arlene. She was enchanted with his full head of blond hair. When she maneuvered to get him to ask her out, he went to her house and was told by her mother, Oh, youre the one she talks about all the time. Eight months later, they were on their way to Corinth, Mississippi, to get married. No waiting period was required in Mississippi at the time and since the couple had no desire for a big wedding, heading to Corinth made total sense. Upon their return to Decatur, Howard took a job with the Mueller Company, a firm that manufactured valves for gas and water equipment. Starting in the maintaining and operating of the heavy machinery, he worked his way up to tool & die maker after five years. He stayed with that company for a total of 40 years until his retirement. Music had always been a part of Howards life. He began singing as a child and after getting out of the service; he picked up a guitar and learned to play. His talent and hard work paid off and soon he had a band playing in all of the honkytonks and clubs in the Decatur area. Making extra money for his family and developing some heavy duty contacts, soon he was associated with Wanda Jackson. Wanda is a country singer of major note and is a kissing cousin to Howard. While socializing, Howard and Wanda were playing and singing together for a few friends when they noticed that the crowd was over flowing their house. A close bond between the two has prevailed ever since. Back in the sixties, within a few months of being with Wanda, Howard and his band were opening for many acts including George Jones; Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins and Ferlin Husky. He appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and was offered the opportunity to travel with Roy Clark on tour. Howard has always loved his music, but he loved his family more. At the time, he had a young daughter, Julie, and his beautiful wife Arlene. His employment at the plant was steady and paid well so he choose to stay near home and not go on the road. Years later, when Howard met up with Roy again, he reminded him of their conversation. Roy told Howard, You made the right choice, and Howard had to agree. Since those early days, many things have changed. Arlene and Howard have raised three children; Julie, Howard Junior and Carol. Howard Junior is carrying on the family musical tradition in Nashville where he owns his own studio and is a drummer with his own band. For 57 years Howard and Arlene have been happily married and in their own words, Richly blessed by God. Along with three children, they enjoy six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Howards Mother is 102 years of age which has been an added blessing to them. Howard continues to perform at parties and other limited engagements bringing joy and music to many people along the way. Arlene has supported his efforts throughout their life and on a trip to Corinth 40 years after their marriage, she received a special gift. They returned to the courthouse where they had received their marriage license and in front of the staff, Howard sang I Love You More and More Every Day to Arlene. There were no dry eyes in the house that day. Active bowlers, fishermen and travelers, Arlene and Howard are pleased to be living in Cherrywood where they are surrounded by scores of friends and the active life style. Everyone who knows them appreciates their sense of humor, generosity, loyalty and warmth. While they consider themselves richly blessed, Cherrywood and their friends are blessed to have them as residents. From Your Reporter:Much to my embarrassment, occasionally I get some facts wrong in my articles. An example of this occurred in last weeks Spotlight column. In that issue I stated that Sandra Brotherhoods Mom was deceased. I am pleased to say that Phyllis Yagnesak is alive and well living with her sister at Hardwood Trails. May I express my sincere apologies to Phyllis; Sandra; Bill and any one else who was inconvenienced by my error. While I try hard to get all the information straight in this column, sometimes I make a mistake. This was a big one and I am truly sorry.If there is anything you would like to see covered in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com The Right Choices For the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information. T his is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled or have already been held for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were second-graders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high PUBLISHER : GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

O nce again this week, we marked the anniversary of a very special day in the annals of American History. On June 6, 68 years ago, Allied troops began the assault on the beaches of Normandy, the invasion that would eventually lead to the end of World War II in Europe. Thousands were killed storming those beaches, but thousands of others made it through and marched into the French countryside, eventually taking charge of what had been German strongholds. Each year there are fewer and fewer D-Day survivors who are around to remember the brutal days that started by setting sail from England. The Americans who fought in World War II and took part in the great crusade against the Germans and Japanese have been called the Greatest Generation. History views these fighters favorably, rightly giving them credit for saving the freedom of Europe, if not the world. Those of us who are enjoying the benefits of that freedom should never forget the role these brave souls played in keeping the world free. Maybe some out there lost relatives in that invasion, and know personally the sacrifices that were made. Many still remember. Those Honor Flights to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II memorial have brought back memories for the veterans who have made the trip. Indeed, all those who have flown on those Honor Flights are asked to gather to be honored at Veterans Park next week, Thursday, June 14 at 10 a.m. Its just another fitting tribute for those who fought bravely in the war. So take a moment to remember the heroes. And lets always keep alive the memory of June 6, 1944.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remember D-Day and the veterans Annual message to the graduates LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jackie Porter tells her side of the storyI write this letter asking you to consider helping me get my side of the story out to your readers. The Star-Banner continually attacks me in their editorials. They allow letters to the editor that are lies and they do not fact check the content. I will not be bullied by their relentless smearing of my name, and will not retreat. At age 25, in 1984, I had a vision and opened my first retail plant nursery and garden center. I did not marry into the business (I married in 1981) I sold my personal car for the down payment for the first Porters store property, there was no Porter family fortune. I stood up against the big box stores for 20 years, sold my interest in the business when it was still thriving, and I retired. I am truly a business person with hard work ethics, honesty and integrity. My customer service was top notch, my employees trusted and respected me. The school system should be run the same way not by a sword and not with fear of retaliation. Students, parents, employees and taxpayers should be heard and their ideas and solutions taken into consideration. I have exposed the waste of taxpayers money, most identified to me by stakeholders (employees and taxpayers). I do listen and take action. I have stood up for the taxpayers, children and employees during my four-year term as an elected School Board member, and for doing so been demonized. I will fund the needs of our classrooms first. My three opponents are current six-figure salaried school administrators who have a combined 70 years employed with Marion County Public schools, taking home week after week a pay check from you. They still do not have the right formula for educating our students. Marion County Public Schools rank 44th out of 67 school districts, this is unacceptable. We have the opportunity to take back our school system. I am not status quo. I was not status quo in the retail world of big box stores but I succeeded and, with the community, we will succeed in educating our children to their fullest potential and reach my goal to be in the top 20 school districts in the state. Our children deserve it, our community deserves it. I need your vote in the Republican primary for Superintendent of Schools, on Aug. 14. You will not be disappointed. Jackie PorterSex-selection abortionAmericas liberal faction has crossed the Rubicon and taken a decisive, irrevocable step which reveals forever their lack of concern for women of any age Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like selfstarter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these students steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the students who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computerchair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done. Congratulations!

It lays open the hypocrisy of the liberal feminism movement whose doctrine pretends to advocate for womens rights. It reveals their real goal, population control: Abort more unborn female babies which equals less women to bear more children. This is not a new objective but one that has been in operation for decades, albeit carefully disguised for public consumption. Targeting unborn females for abortion is nothing new in the USA, but until the recent public exposure of Planned Parenthoods gender-specific abortions, it was not widely known by the public.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A recent spate of confusion regarding decisionmaking begins to clear up. But caution is still advised. Continue to check details. An old friend has important news. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre anxious to see your ideas move from concept to development. But trying to force the issue right now could backfire. Wait for movement to resume on the 11th. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Keep your thoughts focused on the positive as you deal with an unexpected turn of events in a personal or professional relationship. This could be the start of a welcome change. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Health matters take on added importance at this time. Deal with them before they interfere with your summer plans. A relationship that cooled off could soon warm up again. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) While a few details involving upcoming decisions still need your attention, you fun-loving Felines can begin to spend more time enjoying your lively social life again. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) That long-sought-after career change could require you to move to another city. Weigh your decision carefully before either accepting or rejecting the offer out of hand. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A workplace situation can be awkward for Librans who prefer to keep their problems private. But you might have to tell-all if you hope to see it resolved in your favor.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Personal relationships take a positive turn for both married and single Aquarians. Professional commitments, however, could be complicated by newly emerging events. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A decision you thought was final might be reopened as new facts are discovered. This could lead to a short-term problem, but might ultimately prove beneficial.

T wo people face charges in connection with the theft of a cell phone. Jonathan Irizarry Colon, 24, of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of grand theft, and Marjorie Gonzalez-Roman, 37, also of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of tampering with evidence. According to deputies, Colon stole the cell phone from a desk counter at a clinic where GonzalezRoman was awaiting treatment. Later, deputies arrived at the home of the couple. As they approached the woman, they heard a noise and she was accused of throwing the disputed cell phone into a drainage culvert. Marion Oaks Utilities was called and the culvert cover was removed for examination. A cell phone was located under a drainage pipe and matched the serial number of the stolen phone. Both suspects were charged. In addition, Colon was charged with violation of probation for a previous offense. Colons bond was $2,000 on the theft charge, but he was held without bond for the probation violation. Gonzalez-Roman was released on $5,000 bond. Hector HernandezAcosta, 31, of Northeast 40th Place, was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped for traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of West State Road 40 in the 5200 block. He produced an ID from Honduras, and failed the field sobriety test. He was taken to jail and his breath registered at .221 and .227, nearly three times the legal limit. Michael W. Hunter Jr., 27, of Northwest 21st Place, was accused of tampering with evidence and drug possession less than 20 grams. A deputy was trying to make a traffic stop of Hunters vehicle on State Road 200 in the 7000 block for going 60 mph in a 50 mph zone. The deputy said he observed the driver throw a small bag out of the drivers window. The deputy said he could smell marijuana when he made the stop. Hunter was charged, and also given a warning for driving unknowingly while his license was suspended. A Florida Highlands woman was accused of stealing from a man whose house she was cleaning. Khrishawnnah Lee Young, 38, of Southwest 157th Lane, allegedly took a ring and pawned it.

The voluntary ban was implemented in April when drought conditions across the county began to worsen. However, rain brought by tropical storms Alberto and Beryl over the past few weeks significantly reduced wildfire concerns. As of Monday, the drought index reported a county average of 227 on a scale of 0 to 800, which is well below the severe drought range that begins at 700. In contrast, when the voluntary burn ban was implemented, the drought index registered as high as 651 in some areas. 000BP0I TOP REASONS TO REMOVE TREES They are dead or diseased They are causing property damage Storm damage Construction Liability & maintenance issues WHY GRIND STUMPS?

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 W hat is called Golfs Toughest Test returns to The Olympic Club in San Franciso on June 14-17, where it is claimed that the worlds best players will be thoroughly challenged, physically and mentally, by the Lake Course. Here in Pun Alley everyone will be mentally challenged to enjoy some golfing stories. Seniors gameJohn trudged into his house and laid down his golf bag. How was your game? asked his wife, Judy. I was hitting the ball OK, but my eyesights gotten so bad I couldnt see where the ball went. shrugged John Well, youre 79 years old, said Judy. You cant expect everything to be like it was. Why dont you take my brother Jimmy along? But hes 85 and he doesnt even play golf, protested John. But hes got perfect eyesight, Judy pointed out. He can watch the ball for you. So the next day John teed off with Jimmy watching. He swung and the ball disappeared down the fairway. Do you see it, do you see it asked John in anticipation. Yep! Jimmy answered. Well where is it exclaimed John. I forgot, said Jimmy.Par?Henry was playing by himself on a gorgeous clear morning and had just finished the first two holes. On the third he hit a screamer down the middle. He lined up his second with a 3-iron, but shanked it. It hit a tree, ricocheted back, hit him between the eyes and he dropped dead on the fairway. At the Pearly Gates St. Peter asked, Who are you? Henry Chapman. St Peter looked at his clipboard and scratched his head. Ive got no record of you being due; how did you get here? In two. Sort PuttsTwo robbers with clubs went golfing, but they didnt play the fairway. They have just developed a new golf club to be used when you are not sure which club is best. It is called the waffle iron. The reason we never see politicians playing golf is its too much like their work, trapped in one bad lie after another. Frustration in golf is exhibited by using course language. Outdoor lights were recently put up at a golf course for people who like swinging nightclubs. The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you cant see him laughing. Toms son is so good at golf hes been offered a full scholarship to medical school. Sure shot Two detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez. How was he killed? asked one detective. With a golf gun, the other detective replied. A golf gun! What is a golf gun? I dont know. But it sure made a hole in Juan. Smart studentStudent: Let me get this straight. The less I hit the ball, the better I am doing. Pro: Now youve got it! Student: Then why hit it at all? No partnerA guy came home from the golf course and said, Im not playing golf with Bill anymore. His wife asked, Why not? Tell me, would you play with a guy who slices every drive into other fairways, doesnt yell fore when hes shooting near other people, rips up more sod than a bulldozer, loses more balls than he brings, drinks too much, and tells lousy jokes? he asked. f course not, she said. Well, neither will Bill.ProfessionalsA doctor and a lawyer met up in the clubhouse after a round of golf. The doctor said, Hey, hows your golf game these days? Not bad. Im finally shooting in the mid-seventies, said the lawyer. Honestly? the doctor asked. Whats that got to do with it? Who or what? A husband and wife on vacation in Florida decided to visit the local country club for a round of golf. The husband rented clubs for himself and his wife, but the pro shop had only one bag. The wife insisted that the husband go out and play. He was paired with another gentleman. After finishing the seventh hole the husband looked curiously across the green to see his wife and another woman teeing off on the fourth hole. Everything all right? the second guy asked. Oh, sure, said the husband. It seems my wife found an old bag to play with. The guy looked over at the women. Yeah, mine, too. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. U.S. Open golf calls for a trip down Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Read the classifieds in the singing of Jesus Loves Me. Then the Joyful Notes (absent one note) with Linda Aker, Trudy Harrsch and Ann Bellis, accompanied by Ardith Thomas sang Think About His Love for Pastors confirmation. In honor of his years in the Navy, the members all sang Anchors Aweigh. Warren Erickson, marked Pastors marriage in 1970 to Marsha by singing a solo, Youll Never Walk Alone. The Joyful Notes Trio then recognized Pastors seminary years (1979-1982) with a song, Life in Jesus. When Pastor Ed was called to Florida he initially had to move alone so he brought his dog with him for company. So the members all joined in to tease him with the song That Doggie in the Window. Pastor Ed has become known as the piano playing singing pastor which he often does at worship services. Irene Henderson devoted this song to him by singing In My Heart There Rings a Melody. Lynn Barrett, sang a Simple Song for Pastors future life. Finally the Joy vocal choir sang The Lord Bless You for the Benediction. After a delicious meal catered by the Oak Run Caterers, there was a lot of toasting of Pastor Holloway. A member of the original Call Committee said that after interviewing many potential pastors she knew that Rev. Holloway would be the right one just by the way he got out of the car when coming to the interview. The Committee was looking for someone who would be an available minister to his congregation and a good listener and Pastor Ed fit those criteria. One of the Stephen Ministers commended Pastor Ed for his initiative in helping to develop this ministry at Joy. Another said she had learned why Pastor Ed was patient and willing to wait because as he said, God is in control, you wait because it is always in Gods time. Others praised him for helping them through hard times, especially one who had a heart attack and heart surgery. A new member said she was so impressed with how Pastor Ed does so much for a lot of people even when they are not members of the church such as, providing weddings and baptisms. Another praised Pastor Eds inspiring Daily Devotionals on the church website, www.joyocala.org. Pastor Ed was allowed to have the last word at this event. However he had to admit that he was quite overwhelmed by the many positive comments. He thanked his church staff for all their devotion and hard work and especially those who helped to put this event together. He said this was like grace to him and coming to Joy Lutheran Church was truly a gift. JOYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Turner graduated Thursday from North Marion High.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Y ou may watch the value of your property, home or retirement investment savings struggle in the current economy, and may be wondering about ways to protect your family in the event of an unforeseen event. One option you may not have considered is the purchase of a whole life insurance policy. It may not be something youd automatically turn to, but whole life insurance offers guaranteed 1 death benefit protection in addition to multiple tax advantages and cash value accumulation. Owning a whole life policy can be a great financial alternative, not only for the protection of your loved ones but also a financial option for your living needs. Invest in Your Loved OnesThe primary promise of life insurance, of course, is that your loved ones will be protected in the event of your death. And with a whole life policy, your death benefit is guaranteed,1 whether the payout comes in a matter of years or decades. This is a product that provides protection in the long-term interests of those you care for most, as well as your own peace of mind. Invest in Your FutureBut, what you may not know is that a whole life insurance policy is much more than protection against the unknown. It also provides you with tax-deferred cash value that accumulates over time. In the event of sudden unforeseen or happily anticipated expenses, it provides a readily available source of funds.2 And, in the long run, it can also supplement your retirement income.2 Any kind of financial strategy these days seems fraught with uncertainty, so its important to consider carefully what vehicles work best for your own circumstances.

It begins when hes asked to identify a body because his name was found on the newly murdered man. All of a sudden The past was coming back. All of it. The dead, it seemed, were digging their way out of the ground now. Because as Copeland stares at the corpse the tattoo on the left arm is unmistakable. Twenty years earlier four teenagers at a summer camp broke curfew, walked into the surrounding woods, and vanished. Later only two bodies were found. One of the unaccounted for was Pauls 17-year-old sister Camille. In the morgue the boy who went missing with her is lying on a slab. If he escaped the serial killer, Paul reasons, perhaps his sister did too. Wanting desperately to follow up this new piece of evidence, Paul is nevertheless embroiled in a challenging rape case in which the defendants are privileged frat boys from wealthy families and the victim is a hapless teenage exotic dancer/ prostitute. Their influential parents, determined to see their sons acquitted, begin digging into Pauls past and that of other family members. In the process, shocking and painful secrets long withheld from Copeland himself are revealed. Paul is still grieving the loss of his young wife, dead from cancer, and trying to raise his six-year-old The past comes to life in this story B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington daughter as a single dad. Thus, Paul is challenged on several levels from his shattered beliefs in those hes known all his life to pressure exerted on the outcome of the rape case. Though plot is a greater asset to Coben than character, he does craft a pretty topnotch story, and it wouldnt be right to give too much of it away. It is enough to say that the stoic protagonist refuses to let demons from the past defeat him. A really fast read. THE WOODS By Harlan Coben May 30th celebration Residents of Cherrywood celebrated Memorial Day on the traditional date of May 30. The wreath-laying was part of the event. See the Cherrywood column, Page 13. In a unanimous vote at its Tuesday meeting, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners voted to make recycling in Marion County even more convenient by approving an agreement with Waste Pro of Ocala to provide single-stream recycling at county recycling centers. Single-stream recycling will eliminate the need for county residents to separate items into cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum and other categories before recycling. Citizens will be able to dispose of all items in the same box at county recycling centers. According to the fiveyear contract, Waste Pro of Ocala will be responsible for constructing a regional material recovery facility in Marion County as well as for transportation of the recyclables from county recycling centers to the facility. Marion County will receive 55 percent of the revenue from the sale of the recyclable material. This revenue, combined with cost savings due to the new recycling processes, is anticipated to cover the cost of the expanded services. The city of Ocala recently went to curbside single-stream recycling, and removed all neighborhood recycling centers in the city limits. County residents must now drive to one of the county recycling centers that are open to the public. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Marion County currently ranks tenth out of Floridas 67 counties in a statewide ranking of each countys adjusted recycling rate. Marion County Solid Waste officials hope singlestream recycling will help improve that rate even more. The single-stream recycling program is expected to begin Sept. 1. Recycling gets easier for county residents BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the Citizen June 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the Rev. Edward Holloway Jr.s call to be the pastor at Joy Evangelical Lutheran Church as well as marking his 30 years since ordination. The congregation wanted to celebrate this event and held a dinner at the Palm Grove Auditorium in Oak Run on Saturday, June 2. More than 160 members of the congregation attended the dinner with guests Pastor Anna Figuerio, St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Pastor Ashley Nicolls, St Johns Lutheran Church, Summerfield and Pastor Jim Young, Ascension Lutheran Church. Pastor Holloway came from Minnesota, where he received a bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota and his Master of Divinity from Northwestern Lutheran Seminary. He also served in the U.S. Navy. He was a pastor in a small Lutheran church in Monticello, Minnesota from 1982 to 1992 and then senior pastor at Zion Lutheran Church, Cottage Grove, Minnesota for 10 years before coming to Florida. Joy Council President, Jerry Hollnagel greeted everyone to the not so very Surprise Party and thanked all for coming to celebrate a friend, confidant and preacher. Pastor Young gave the invocation to begin the celebration. Sharon Hickman-Besch, Joy Associate in Ministry, Music developed and directed a Musical Toast of Pastor Holloway covering his life events from birth to the present. For his birth, the members were led Joy Lutheran honors pastor Rev. Ed Holloway of Joy Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com You may watch the value of your property, home or retirement investment savings struggle in the current economy, and may be wondering about ways to protect your family in the event of an unforeseen event. One option you may not have considered is the purchase of a whole life insurance policy. It may not be something youd automatically turn to, but whole life insurance offers guaranteed 1 death benefit protection in addition to multiple tax advantages and cash value accumulation. Owning a whole life policy can be a great financial alternative, not only for the protection of your loved ones but also a financial option for your living needs.Invest in Your Loved OnesThe primary promise of life insurance, of course, is that your loved ones will be protected in the event of your death. And with a whole life policy, your death benefit is guaranteed,1 whether the payout comes in a matter of years or decades. This is a product that provides protection in the long-term interests of those you care for most, as well as your own peace of mind. Invest in Your FutureBut, what you may not know is that a whole life insurance policy is much more than protection against the unknown. It also provides you with tax-deferred cash value that accumulates over time. In the event of sudden unforeseen or happily anticipated expenses, it provides a readily available source of funds.2 And, in the long run, it can also supplement your retirement income.2 Any kind of financial strategy these days seems fraught with uncertainty, so its important to consider carefully what vehicles work best for your own circumstances.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 What is called Golfs Toughest Test returns to The Olympic Club in San Franciso on June 14-17, where it is claimed that the worlds best players will be thoroughly challenged, physically and mentally, by the Lake Course. Here in Pun Alley everyone will be mentally challenged to enjoy some golfing stories.Seniors gameJohn trudged into his house and laid down his golf bag. How was your game? asked his wife, Judy. I was hitting the ball OK, but my eyesights gotten so bad I couldnt see where the ball went. shrugged John Well, youre 79 years old, said Judy. You cant expect everything to be like it was. Why dont you take my brother Jimmy along? But hes 85 and he doesnt even play golf, protested John. But hes got perfect eyesight, Judy pointed out. He can watch the ball for you. So the next day John teed off with Jimmy watching. He swung and the ball disappeared down the fairway. Do you see it, do you see it asked John in anticipation. Yep! Jimmy answered. Well where is it exclaimed John. I forgot, said Jimmy.Par?Henry was playing by himself on a gorgeous clear morning and had just finished the first two holes. On the third he hit a screamer down the middle. He lined up his second with a 3-iron, but shanked it. It hit a tree, ricocheted back, hit him between the eyes and he dropped dead on the fairway. At the Pearly Gates St. Peter asked, Who are you? Henry Chapman. St Peter looked at his clipboard and scratched his head. Ive got no record of you being due; how did you get here? In two.Sort PuttsTwo robbers with clubs went golfing, but they didnt play the fairway. They have just developed a new golf club to be used when you are not sure which club is best. It is called the waffle iron. The reason we never see politicians playing golf is its too much like their work, trapped in one bad lie after another. Frustration in golf is exhibited by using course language. Outdoor lights were recently put up at a golf course for people who like swinging nightclubs. The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you cant see him laughing. Toms son is so good at golf hes been offered a full scholarship to medical school. Sure shotTwo detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez. How was he killed? asked one detective. With a golf gun, the other detective replied. A golf gun! What is a golf gun? I dont know. But it sure made a hole in Juan.Smart studentStudent: Let me get this straight. The less I hit the ball, the better I am doing. Pro: Now youve got it! Student: Then why hit it at all?No partnerA guy came home from the golf course and said, Im not playing golf with Bill anymore. His wife asked, Why not? Tell me, would you play with a guy who slices every drive into other fairways, doesnt yell fore when hes shooting near other people, rips up more sod than a bulldozer, loses more balls than he brings, drinks too much, and tells lousy jokes? he asked. f course not, she said. Well, neither will Bill.ProfessionalsA doctor and a lawyer met up in the clubhouse after a round of golf. The doctor said, Hey, hows your golf game these days? Not bad. Im finally shooting in the mid-seventies, said the lawyer. Honestly? the doctor asked. Whats that got to do with it?Who or what?A husband and wife on vacation in Florida decided to visit the local country club for a round of golf. The husband rented clubs for himself and his wife, but the pro shop had only one bag. The wife insisted that the husband go out and play. He was paired with another gentleman. After finishing the seventh hole the husband looked curiously across the green to see his wife and another woman teeing off on the fourth hole. Everything all right? the second guy asked. Oh, sure, said the husband. It seems my wife found an old bag to play with. The guy looked over at the women. Yeah, mine, too.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. U.S. Open golf calls for a trip down Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Read the classifieds in the singing of Jesus Loves Me. Then the Joyful Notes (absent one note) with Linda Aker, Trudy Harrsch and Ann Bellis, accompanied by Ardith Thomas sang Think About His Love for Pastors confirmation. In honor of his years in the Navy, the members all sang Anchors Aweigh. Warren Erickson, marked Pastors marriage in 1970 to Marsha by singing a solo, Youll Never Walk Alone. The Joyful Notes Trio then recognized Pastors seminary years (1979-1982) with a song, Life in Jesus. When Pastor Ed was called to Florida he initially had to move alone so he brought his dog with him for company. So the members all joined in to tease him with the song That Doggie in the Window. Pastor Ed has become known as the piano playing singing pastor which he often does at worship services. Irene Henderson devoted this song to him by singing In My Heart There Rings a Melody. Lynn Barrett, sang a Simple Song for Pastors future life. Finally the Joy vocal choir sang The Lord Bless You for the Benediction. After a delicious meal catered by the Oak Run Caterers, there was a lot of toasting of Pastor Holloway. A member of the original Call Committee said that after interviewing many potential pastors she knew that Rev. Holloway would be the right one just by the way he got out of the car when coming to the interview. The Committee was looking for someone who would be an available minister to his congregation and a good listener and Pastor Ed fit those criteria. One of the Stephen Ministers commended Pastor Ed for his initiative in helping to develop this ministry at Joy. Another said she had learned why Pastor Ed was patient and willing to wait because as he said, God is in control, you wait because it is always in Gods time. Others praised him for helping them through hard times, especially one who had a heart attack and heart surgery. A new member said she was so impressed with how Pastor Ed does so much for a lot of people even when they are not members of the church such as, providing weddings and baptisms. Another praised Pastor Eds inspiring Daily Devotionals on the church website, www.joyocala.org. Pastor Ed was allowed to have the last word at this event. However he had to admit that he was quite overwhelmed by the many positive comments. He thanked his church staff for all their devotion and hard work and especially those who helped to put this event together. He said this was like grace to him and coming to Joy Lutheran Church was truly a gift. JOYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Turner graduated Thursday from North Marion High.

Two people face charges in connection with the theft of a cell phone. Jonathan Irizarry Colon, 24, of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of grand theft, and Marjorie Gonzalez-Roman, 37, also of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of tampering with evidence. According to deputies, Colon stole the cell phone from a desk counter at a clinic where GonzalezRoman was awaiting treatment. Later, deputies arrived at the home of the couple. As they approached the woman, they heard a noise and she was accused of throwing the disputed cell phone into a drainage culvert. Marion Oaks Utilities was called and the culvert cover was removed for examination. A cell phone was located under a drainage pipe and matched the serial number of the stolen phone. Both suspects were charged. In addition, Colon was charged with violation of probation for a previous offense. Colons bond was $2,000 on the theft charge, but he was held without bond for the probation violation. Gonzalez-Roman was released on $5,000 bond. Hector HernandezAcosta, 31, of Northeast 40th Place, was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped for traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of West State Road 40 in the 5200 block. He produced an ID from Honduras, and failed the field sobriety test. He was taken to jail and his breath registered at .221 and .227, nearly three times the legal limit. Michael W. Hunter Jr., 27, of Northwest 21st Place, was accused of tampering with evidence and drug possession less than 20 grams. A deputy was trying to make a traffic stop of Hunters vehicle on State Road 200 in the 7000 block for going 60 mph in a 50 mph zone. The deputy said he observed the driver throw a small bag out of the drivers window. The deputy said he could smell marijuana when he made the stop. Hunter was charged, and also given a warning for driving unknowingly while his license was suspended. A Florida Highlands woman was accused of stealing from a man whose house she was cleaning. Khrishawnnah Lee Young, 38, of Southwest 157th Lane, allegedly took a ring and pawned it. Deputies found that Young had pawned the ring at the 14 Karat Gold Center in a car wash in the 9500 block of State Road 200.

The voluntary ban was implemented in April when drought conditions across the county began to worsen. However, rain brought by tropical storms Alberto and Beryl over the past few weeks significantly reduced wildfire concerns. As of Monday, the drought index reported a county average of 227 on a scale of 0 to 800, which is well below the severe drought range that begins at 700. In contrast, when the voluntary burn ban was implemented, the drought index registered as high as 651 in some areas. 000BP0I T OP REASONS T O REMO VE TREES They are dead or diseased They are causing property damage Storm damage Construction Liability & maintenance issues WHY GRIND STUMPS?

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com The Right Choices For the Citiz en Maintain the health of your business Advertise in www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 8, 2012 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.This is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled or have already been held for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were second-graders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.Groups or individuals are invited to express their opinions in letters to the editor and guest columns.Persons wishing to contact the editor should call 854-3986.All letters must be signed and include a phone number and community name, including letters sent via e-mail.

Once again this week, we marked the anniversary of a very special day in the annals of American History. On June 6, 68 years ago, Allied troops began the assault on the beaches of Normandy, the invasion that would eventually lead to the end of World War II in Europe. Thousands were killed storming those beaches, but thousands of others made it through and marched into the French countryside, eventually taking charge of what had been German strongholds. Each year there are fewer and fewer D-Day survivors who are around to remember the brutal days that started by setting sail from England. The Americans who fought in World War II and took part in the great crusade against the Germans and Japanese have been called the Greatest Generation. History views these fighters favorably, rightly giving them credit for saving the freedom of Europe, if not the world. Those of us who are enjoying the benefits of that freedom should never forget the role these brave souls played in keeping the world free. Maybe some out there lost relatives in that invasion, and know personally the sacrifices that were made. Many still remember. Those Honor Flights to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II memorial have brought back memories for the veterans who have made the trip. Indeed, all those who have flown on those Honor Flights are asked to gather to be honored at Veterans Park next week, Thursday, June 14 at 10 a.m. Its just another fitting tribute for those who fought bravely in the war. So take a moment to remember the heroes. And lets always keep alive the memory of June 6, 1944.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remember D-Day and the veterans Annual message to the graduates LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jackie Porter tells her side of the storyI write this letter asking you to consider helping me get my side of the story out to your readers. The Star-Banner continually attacks me in their editorials. They allow letters to the editor that are lies and they do not fact check the content. I will not be bullied by their relentless smearing of my name, and will not retreat. At age 25, in 1984, I had a vision and opened my first retail plant nursery and garden center. I did not marry into the business (I married in 1981) I sold my personal car for the down payment for the first Porters store property, there was no Porter family fortune. I stood up against the big box stores for 20 years, sold my interest in the business when it was still thriving, and I retired. I am truly a business person with hard work ethics, honesty and integrity. My customer service was top notch, my employees trusted and respected me. The school system should be run the same way not by a sword and not with fear of retaliation. Students, parents, employees and taxpayers should be heard and their ideas and solutions taken into consideration. I have exposed the waste of taxpayers money, most identified to me by stakeholders (employees and taxpayers). I do listen and take action. I have stood up for the taxpayers, children and employees during my four-year term as an elected School Board member, and for doing so been demonized. I will fund the needs of our classrooms first. My three opponents are current six-figure salaried school administrators who have a combined 70 years employed with Marion County Public schools, taking home week after week a pay check from you. They still do not have the right formula for educating our students. Marion County Public Schools rank 44th out of 67 school districts, this is unacceptable. We have the opportunity to take back our school system. I am not status quo. I was not status quo in the retail world of big box stores but I succeeded and, with the community, we will succeed in educating our children to their fullest potential and reach my goal to be in the top 20 school districts in the state. Our children deserve it, our community deserves it. I need your vote in the Republican primary for Superintendent of Schools, on Aug. 14. You will not be disappointed. Jackie PorterSex-selection abortionAmericas liberal faction has crossed the Rubicon and taken a decisive, irrevocable step which reveals forever their lack of concern for women of any age Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like selfstarter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these students steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the students who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computerchair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

It lays open the hypocrisy of the liberal feminism movement whose doctrine pretends to advocate for womens rights. It reveals their real goal, population control: Abort more unborn female babies which equals less women to bear more children. This is not a new objective but one that has been in operation for decades, albeit carefully disguised for public consumption. Targeting unborn females for abortion is nothing new in the USA, but until the recent public exposure of Planned Parenthoods gender-specific abortions, it was not widely known by the public.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com that the number of female births are much lower than male births reported in earlier statistics. These lower female births are in direct contrast to past reports which showed opposite numbers. Planned Parenthood and other such abortion organizations are not concerned whether they abort males or females they care only about the funding that abortion brings. However, these abortionists welcome another reason for parents to abort their children, and sex-selection abortions add to the category of reasons. Planned Parenthood is a leader in advising parents how to time sonograms to determine the gender of the unborn for purposes of positively producing a male child. Gender of the unborn can be determined by sonogram at about five months gestation but now sonogram is not the only means of determining gender now the mothers blood can be tested early in the pregnancy to determine gender. This is a recent discovery which will enable even larger numbers of unborn females to be aborted. Why is the public so shocked at the discovery of sex-selection abortion? It is completely within the despicable law known as Roe vs. Wade. Parents can abort their unborn chilLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 dren at any stage of gestation, for any reason, or for no reason at all. Shouldnt we have known that there would be parents with no personal, moral, or social ethics who would prefer designing their own child using abortion as the tool of preference? The killing of baby girls by abortion or at birth is pervasive in China due to the One Child policy and a preference for sons. We have often heard pro-abortion American politicians denounce China for its extreme population control program while at the same time these same politicians support and promote abortion in their own country. Now these same politicians are supporting and promoting sex-selection abortions in the USA as if it is a normal part of life and their political agenda. The Congressional Democrats recently voted down what would have been a ban on sex-selection abortions. These Democratic supporters of targeted abortion of females publicly stated that this bill to ban sex-selection abortions is the latest tactic in the War on Women. Are these politicians brain damaged or are they hoping that the public is brain dead? What is pro-woman about killing a baby girl simply because she is female? President Obama who fathered two daughters himself has promoted and supported abortion during his entire public life. He is now revealing extreme discrimination against women by supporting the killing of baby girls simply because they are female. This is barbaric activity and has no place in civilized society. This has passed beyond civilization into moral decadence. Is this the tipping point in America for abortion? In recent years reliable polling has shown that more than half the citizens in the USA are pro-life and against abortion at any stage for any reason. Is this newly revealed sex-selection abortion the incentive that will spur those who are undecided to take a stand for life? May it be so. Mabel Ryan President, Life Education Ministry, Inc. Fusion CentersDo not take my word. Check it out for yourself. Several times Glenn Beck has aired a video of a person describing how they (those who mean to take over) plan to eliminate the 75 percent of the population they deem surplus, using injections of germs, or viruses. Pipe dream? Apparently not. My take on the video was some kind of kook, not any longer. This is the real thing Jesse Ventura, has a video on Youtube, dealing with Fusion Centers (concentration camps,) FEMA Camps. Enter: The True Facts about FEMA Camps Youtube. 44 minutes. Halliburton did the construction, and they are stocked with injections, and coffins. Rows and rows of plastic coffins. Staggering. See them for yourself. Everyone is vying for the big prize: America. Will we be swallowed by the socialists, communists, globalists, or Jihadists? We are very popular. Shock of shocks. The ACLU is questioning the purpose of these Fusion Centers. Jessie Ventura is not the only one who is concerned about them. When both sides are suspicious, something must be afoot Any of these options appeal to you? I opt out of any of these alternatives. I opt for liberty. I like it. A lot. D.I. LarsonOak Run: no walkingI want to commend and support Decca for not allowing walking on the boulevard.

Yogi Andrew Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who might have an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the lives of the people in our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Howard and Arlene Mayberry. Howard and Arlene were both born and raised in Decatur, Illinois. Howard was one of eight children. His father worked maintenance in some of the major factories located in the town and in spite of his long hours, the children were no stranger to poverty. In 1951, the Korean War was in progress and Howard left school at the ripe old age of 17 to join the U.S. Army. Basic Training and Advanced Training were a treat for the young man as it was the first time he had new clothes on his back and access to the all you can eat buffets that Uncle Sam provided. Immediately following his training, he received orders for Korea. He jokingly tells how he protested to his 1st Sergeant that he couldnt go to Korea because he was only 17. The reply he got was either go to Korea or go to jail for 10 years. Naturally, Howard went to Korea. Trained in heavy equipment mechanics, while Howard served for nearly a year and a half in Korea, he was awarded four Bronze Stars and the Syngman Rhee Medal. Grateful to be alive, he returned home and was discharged in 1954. Following his discharge from the service, Howard took a job at a munitions plant in Decatur. He caught the eye of a young girl who also worked the line there by the name of Arlene. She was enchanted with his full head of blond hair. When she maneuvered to get him to ask her out, he went to her house and was told by her mother, Oh, youre the one she talks about all the time. Eight months later, they were on their way to Corinth, Mississippi, to get married. No waiting period was required in Mississippi at the time and since the couple had no desire for a big wedding, heading to Corinth made total sense. Upon their return to Decatur, Howard took a job with the Mueller Company, a firm that manufactured valves for gas and water equipment. Starting in the maintaining and operating of the heavy machinery, he worked his way up to tool & die maker after five years. He stayed with that company for a total of 40 years until his retirement. Music had always been a part of Howards life. He began singing as a child and after getting out of the service; he picked up a guitar and learned to play. His talent and hard work paid off and soon he had a band playing in all of the honkytonks and clubs in the Decatur area. Making extra money for his family and developing some heavy duty contacts, soon he was associated with Wanda Jackson. Wanda is a country singer of major note and is a kissing cousin to Howard. While socializing, Howard and Wanda were playing and singing together for a few friends when they noticed that the crowd was over flowing their house. A close bond between the two has prevailed ever since. Back in the sixties, within a few months of being with Wanda, Howard and his band were opening for many acts including George Jones; Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins and Ferlin Husky. He appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and was offered the opportunity to travel with Roy Clark on tour. Howard has always loved his music, but he loved his family more. At the time, he had a young daughter, Julie, and his beautiful wife Arlene. His employment at the plant was steady and paid well so he choose to stay near home and not go on the road. Years later, when Howard met up with Roy again, he reminded him of their conversation. Roy told Howard, You made the right choice, and Howard had to agree. Since those early days, many things have changed. Arlene and Howard have raised three children; Julie, Howard Junior and Carol. Howard Junior is carrying on the family musical tradition in Nashville where he owns his own studio and is a drummer with his own band. For 57 years Howard and Arlene have been happily married and in their own words, Richly blessed by God. Along with three children, they enjoy six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Howards Mother is 102 years of age which has been an added blessing to them. Howard continues to perform at parties and other limited engagements bringing joy and music to many people along the way. Arlene has supported his efforts throughout their life and on a trip to Corinth 40 years after their marriage, she received a special gift. They returned to the courthouse where they had received their marriage license and in front of the staff, Howard sang I Love You More and More Every Day to Arlene. There were no dry eyes in the house that day. Active bowlers, fishermen and travelers, Arlene and Howard are pleased to be living in Cherrywood where they are surrounded by scores of friends and the active life style. Everyone who knows them appreciates their sense of humor, generosity, loyalty and warmth. While they consider themselves richly blessed, Cherrywood and their friends are blessed to have them as residents.From Your Reporter:Much to my embarrassment, occasionally I get some facts wrong in my articles. An example of this occurred in last weeks Spotlight column. In that issue I stated that Sandra Brotherhoods Mom was deceased. I am pleased to say that Phyllis Yagnesak is alive and well living with her sister at Hardwood Trails. May I express my sincere apologies to Phyllis; Sandra; Bill and any one else who was inconvenienced by my error. While I try hard to get all the information straight in this column, sometimes I make a mistake. This was a big one and I am truly sorry.If there is anything you would like to see covered in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com When we were an agrarian nation, the vision of comfortable retirement was a rocking chair on the front porch of a house without a mortgage. With industrialization came the illusory three-legged stool. For decades after World War II, financial advisers touted the mythical stool as the perfect plan on which to base a secure old age a defined-benefit pension, Social Security, and personal savings. To attract and keep employees, companies promoted their defined-benefit plans. They also touted their generous matching contributions to Social Security, which many companies used as an offset in pension payout calculations a doubleduty leg which giveth and taketh back. Before federal regulation of pension plans, small companies which wanted to provide an affordable retirement benefit to employees would often start with a money-purchase plan. The company would deposit a modest percentage of annual wages (say 5 percent) into an individual account for each employee. Some money-purchase plans allowed employee contributions; most did not. Some also had a profit-sharing feature, a performance incentive which might add two or three percent to employee accounts. Employees liked the idea of having real money accounts in their own names. Unlike defined-benefit plans which were available to public employees and unionized workers, participants in money purchase plans had no idea how much their accounts would be worth at retirement or how to invest the funds to last for the rest of their lives. Many years ago we witnessed the down side of a money purchase plan. The first employee to retire had the bad fortune to exit at a time when the stock market was in steep decline. His fund was barely what the company had contributed during his years of employment. All the investment earnings had disappeared. Around the time Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in 1974, companies began considering how they could discontinue the long-term financial obligations of defined-benefit plans. Since 1990 two-thirds of defined-benefit plans have disappeared. In their place are individual retirement accounts 401Ks, 403Bs, and IRAs all of which are similar to money-purchase plans. Employees and employers contribute significant sums to 401Ks and 403Bs, but the risk of loss is on the employees. Outside of government and unionized employment, defined benefit plans have all but disappeared. Personal savings, including home ownership, have taken a beating. And Social Securitys long-term performance is uncertain. Is it possible to build another threelegged stool? There are books and speakers who say yes, but the time to start is in your 20s. All three legs have to be built from your own savings, divided into three parts, assuming you can find a job and pay off your student loans before your turn 50. For those of us not in our 20s, hang on to the house until its value rises to what it was in 2007. Avoid paying taxes by all legal means. Buy an annuity. Find a job and keep working until youre 90. If youre fired, sue your employer for age discrimination. Retirement without a leg to sit on Jim Flynn Columnist COMMENTARY Iwould agree with the idea that religion comes in all shapes, sizes and temperaments. It is quite obvious that sanity is not a prerequisite of religion. If it were, most religions would go out of business within the 30-day money back guarantee period. Every religion has some sort of litmus test for faith. It is in this area of religion that smacks so loudly of insanity. Superstition, regardless of the basis, is one great common denominator of all religion. It is not that I mind superstition; I just do not want it associated with my religion. I read in the newspaper headlines just this week a pastor was killed by a rattlesnake bite. I had almost forgotten this sort of thing went on in our sophisticated, enlightened world. As a young preacher, I was visiting a congregation in Kentucky as the guest speaker for that Sunday. Never mind the town or the church that is beside the point. I got to the church a little early and was escorted around the church looking at the facilities. Then they took me into the sanctuary where I could look at the pulpit and the sanctuary where I would be preaching. Being the observant person that I am, I noticed a basket next to the pulpit. I had never seen such a basket before. I really did not know too much about the church and now I cannot remember exactly why I was invited to preach there. Be that as it may, I was greatly curious about the basket next to the pulpit. I did not know if it was a wastebasket or if perhaps it was the offering basket and the congregation would fill it up before the service was over. So, I ask my host what the basket was next to the pulpit. Thats where we keep the rattlesnake, he said rather passively. Say what! That basket there is where we keep the rattlesnake that we use in our service. I can take a joke and give it a joke back with the best of them. I responded with a hearty laugh. Ha, Ha, Ha, I said good-naturedly. Really, what is that basket for? I could see my host was not the least bit amused with my persistent inquiry. I said, he said rather sternly, thats where we keep our rattlesnake for our church service. He then stared at me for a few moments and then said, I dont think well need it in our service today. You dont look like you have enough faith. Inside me, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. There is a time when I want to bolster my faith, but in the circumstance before me, I did not want enough faith to handle some rattlesnake. One of the tenants of my religion is to run as fast as I can away from any and all rattlesnakes. It is one part of my religion I take rather seriously. My host tried explaining to me what was going on. He pointed to a passage in Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My first reaction was to think he was pulling the wool over my eyes, so to speak, and I almost laughed out loud. I caught myself in time when I realized this man was serious. According to him, he could have enough faith in God to pick up the poisonous rattlesnake and if it bit him, it would not hurt him at all. According to their religion, when they are truly in the Spirit, they have the power to pick up a poisonous rattlesnake, and if it bites you, it will not hurt you. They keep the basket containing a rattlesnake in the front of the church for when such an occasion arises. I was hoping it would not arise during my time in the pulpit. All during my sermon, I could not help casting a wistful eye in the general direction of the basket next to the pulpit. At one point, I thought I did see the basket move. I yelled at this point, which excited the congregation thinking I had gotten in the spirit, and then everybody cast a wistful eye in the direction of the basket. I respect other peoples views on everything, I suppose. However, there are some things I have difficulty wrapping my tired Snake, rattle and roll in the aisles OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder brain around. This has to be one of them. How you can pull the bit about the rattlesnake out of that verse of Scripture and ignore the rest of it is really beyond me. Religion will make you do many silly things that have no sanity behind them. Many people just go through the motions not really knowing why they are doing what they are doing. At least the snake handlers have a little bit of excitement in their services. Nothing I want to experience, but then who am I to criticize. I rest my faith upon the Scripture. Particularly, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith keeps me away from poisonous rattlesnakes.The Rev. James L.

Unfortunately, the side chairs were showing the wear and tear of that popularity. As always, there are some creative and willing volunteers ready to step up and fix a problem. Thanks to Holly and Dave Bragdon; Eve and Jim Houghtaling and Bonnie Clark who, with the support and cooperation of Cherrywood Property Management, stepped up and gave the chairs a brand new look. Our mens and womens pool teams will be proud to show off the newly reupholstered red and green chairs to the many visiting teams from venues such as Palm Cay; Oak Run and OTOW. Pool matches are always fun and competitive and our teams would like nothing more than to have their opponents sitting in the newly recovered chairs as much as possible during the games. Seriously, all of the pool players and spectators should be very grateful to these hard working volunteers for their time and talent. Youre invited to come down and enjoy a pool game; check out the chairs and when youre there, be sure to say Thank you to these dedicated workers.Bocce BallThere will be no Bocce Ball on Saturday, June 9 due to our Days of Summer celebration.

Record turnoutNearly 150 residents and guests attended the Cherrywood Veterans Club celebration of Memorial Day on May 30. This was the largest number in Cherrywoods history and no one was disappointed. Under the direction of Jerry Moscariello, the Color Guard presented the colors and saluted each branch of the military. Major Morrey Deen inspired the crowd with his speech which outlined the sacrifices made by our service personnel. He also shared the pride he feels for his son who is currently serving in Afghanistan. Major Deen is not only retired from the U.S. Army but also is the retired chief of police of Ocala. His life has been spent in public service and Cherrywood was honored to have him with us. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar read a letter from the 7-year-old grandson of residents Elaine and Eugene Wachsmuth, Xavier. His letter reflected on what Memorial Day means to him. His words touched the assembly and proved that yet another generation is learning about the sacrifices made by previous generations and the true price of freedom. Mahar and Deen placed a wreath at the monument in front of the clubhouse as bugler Peter Axson of the Kingdom of the Sun Band sounded Taps. Silence wrapped itself around the crowd gathered there, broken only when the Color Guard passed in review. A highlight of the service was the unveiling of a beautiful plaque containing the names of Cherrywood Veterans Club members who have passed away over the years. Many of their widows were present to receive a red rose which was given to them by Ruth Hurley as her husband, Richard, read the names and branches of service of those departed. Cherrywood Property Management and Chris Zacco donated the plaque. In addition, a special place has been designated for its display in the clubhouse. The Cherrywood Veterans Club expresses its deep gratitude to Chris for both. Immediately following the service, lunch was served by the many volunteers from the Veterans Club and its Auxiliary. Fred and Jay OHern directed the kitchen staff as hamburgers and hot dogs were cooked on the outdoor grill by another group of volunteers headed up by Bill Brotherhood. At two in the afternoon, the cage containing all the entries for the Bahamas Cruise Raffle began to spin. Travel agent Laura Kane spoke briefly about her involvement and assistance in putting together the cruise and her pride in helping the Veterans. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn was kind enough to draw the winning ticket and as luck would have it, the winners were actually in attendance. Monica and John Whitenton of Oak Run, previously residents of Cherrywood, came forward to accept the tickets and $100 in additional spending money. The two of them will be headed to the Bahamas for a threeday cruise. The drawings continued for door prizes and 50/50 winners. Our own DJ, Rich Becotte played the music for the Memorial Day Service outside and then fired up songs in the clubhouse as people ate and enjoyed the atmosphere of friendship and gratitude to our fallen heroes. He played a wide variety of music of the season including selections from The Stage Door Canteen, Songs that Won the War and many, many more.

Unfortunately, the side chairs were showing the wear and tear of that popularity. As always, there are some creative and willing volunteers ready to step up and fix a problem. Thanks to Holly and Dave Bragdon; Eve and Jim Houghtaling and Bonnie Clark who, with the support and cooperation of Cherrywood Property Management, stepped up and gave the chairs a brand new look. Our mens and womens pool teams will be proud to show off the newly reupholstered red and green chairs to the many visiting teams from venues such as Palm Cay; Oak Run and OTOW. Pool matches are always fun and competitive and our teams would like nothing more than to have their opponents sitting in the newly recovered chairs as much as possible during the games. Seriously, all of the pool players and spectators should be very grateful to these hard working volunteers for their time and talent. Youre invited to come down and enjoy a pool game; check out the chairs and when youre there, be sure to say Thank you to these dedicated workers.Bocce BallThere will be no Bocce Ball on Saturday, June 9 due to our Days of Summer celebration.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com When we were an agrarian nation, the vision of comfortable retirement was a rocking chair on the front porch of a house without a mortgage. With industrialization came the illusory three-legged stool. For decades after World War II, financial advisers touted the mythical stool as the perfect plan on which to base a secure old age a defined-benefit pension, Social Security, and personal savings. To attract and keep employees, companies promoted their defined-benefit plans. They also touted their generous matching contributions to Social Security, which many companies used as an offset in pension payout calculations a doubleduty leg which giveth and taketh back. Before federal regulation of pension plans, small companies which wanted to provide an affordable retirement benefit to employees would often start with a money-purchase plan. The company would deposit a modest percentage of annual wages (say 5 percent) into an individual account for each employee. Some money-purchase plans allowed employee contributions; most did not. Some also had a profit-sharing feature, a performance incentive which might add two or three percent to employee accounts. Employees liked the idea of having real money accounts in their own names. Unlike defined-benefit plans which were available to public employees and unionized workers, participants in money purchase plans had no idea how much their accounts would be worth at retirement or how to invest the funds to last for the rest of their lives. Many years ago we witnessed the down side of a money purchase plan. The first employee to retire had the bad fortune to exit at a time when the stock market was in steep decline. His fund was barely what the company had contributed during his years of employment. All the investment earnings had disappeared. Around the time Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in 1974, companies began considering how they could discontinue the long-term financial obligations of defined-benefit plans. Since 1990 two-thirds of defined-benefit plans have disappeared. In their place are individual retirement accounts 401Ks, 403Bs, and IRAs all of which are similar to money-purchase plans. Employees and employers contribute significant sums to 401Ks and 403Bs, but the risk of loss is on the employees. Outside of government and unionized employment, defined benefit plans have all but disappeared. Personal savings, including home ownership, have taken a beating. And Social Securitys long-term performance is uncertain. Is it possible to build another threelegged stool? There are books and speakers who say yes, but the time to start is in your 20s. All three legs have to be built from your own savings, divided into three parts, assuming you can find a job and pay off your student loans before your turn 50. For those of us not in our 20s, hang on to the house until its value rises to what it was in 2007. Avoid paying taxes by all legal means. Buy an annuity. Find a job and keep working until youre 90. If youre fired, sue your employer for age discrimination. Retirement without a leg to sit on Jim Flynn Columnist COMMENTARY Iwould agree with the idea that religion comes in all shapes, sizes and temperaments. It is quite obvious that sanity is not a prerequisite of religion. If it were, most religions would go out of business within the 30-day money back guarantee period. Every religion has some sort of litmus test for faith. It is in this area of religion that smacks so loudly of insanity. Superstition, regardless of the basis, is one great common denominator of all religion. It is not that I mind superstition; I just do not want it associated with my religion. I read in the newspaper headlines just this week a pastor was killed by a rattlesnake bite. I had almost forgotten this sort of thing went on in our sophisticated, enlightened world. As a young preacher, I was visiting a congregation in Kentucky as the guest speaker for that Sunday. Never mind the town or the church that is beside the point. I got to the church a little early and was escorted around the church looking at the facilities. Then they took me into the sanctuary where I could look at the pulpit and the sanctuary where I would be preaching. Being the observant person that I am, I noticed a basket next to the pulpit. I had never seen such a basket before. I really did not know too much about the church and now I cannot remember exactly why I was invited to preach there. Be that as it may, I was greatly curious about the basket next to the pulpit. I did not know if it was a wastebasket or if perhaps it was the offering basket and the congregation would fill it up before the service was over. So, I ask my host what the basket was next to the pulpit. Thats where we keep the rattlesnake, he said rather passively. Say what! That basket there is where we keep the rattlesnake that we use in our service. I can take a joke and give it a joke back with the best of them. I responded with a hearty laugh. Ha, Ha, Ha, I said good-naturedly. Really, what is that basket for? I could see my host was not the least bit amused with my persistent inquiry. I said, he said rather sternly, thats where we keep our rattlesnake for our church service. He then stared at me for a few moments and then said, I dont think well need it in our service today. You dont look like you have enough faith. Inside me, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. There is a time when I want to bolster my faith, but in the circumstance before me, I did not want enough faith to handle some rattlesnake. One of the tenants of my religion is to run as fast as I can away from any and all rattlesnakes. It is one part of my religion I take rather seriously. My host tried explaining to me what was going on. He pointed to a passage in Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My first reaction was to think he was pulling the wool over my eyes, so to speak, and I almost laughed out loud. I caught myself in time when I realized this man was serious. According to him, he could have enough faith in God to pick up the poisonous rattlesnake and if it bit him, it would not hurt him at all. According to their religion, when they are truly in the Spirit, they have the power to pick up a poisonous rattlesnake, and if it bites you, it will not hurt you. They keep the basket containing a rattlesnake in the front of the church for when such an occasion arises. I was hoping it would not arise during my time in the pulpit. All during my sermon, I could not help casting a wistful eye in the general direction of the basket next to the pulpit. At one point, I thought I did see the basket move. I yelled at this point, which excited the congregation thinking I had gotten in the spirit, and then everybody cast a wistful eye in the direction of the basket. I respect other peoples views on everything, I suppose. However, there are some things I have difficulty wrapping my tired Snake, rattle and roll in the aisles OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder brain around. This has to be one of them. How you can pull the bit about the rattlesnake out of that verse of Scripture and ignore the rest of it is really beyond me. Religion will make you do many silly things that have no sanity behind them. Many people just go through the motions not really knowing why they are doing what they are doing. At least the snake handlers have a little bit of excitement in their services. Nothing I want to experience, but then who am I to criticize. I rest my faith upon the Scripture. Particularly, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith keeps me away from poisonous rattlesnakes.The Rev. James L.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com that the number of female births are much lower than male births reported in earlier statistics. These lower female births are in direct contrast to past reports which showed opposite numbers. Planned Parenthood and other such abortion organizations are not concerned whether they abort males or females they care only about the funding that abortion brings. However, these abortionists welcome another reason for parents to abort their children, and sex-selection abortions add to the category of reasons. Planned Parenthood is a leader in advising parents how to time sonograms to determine the gender of the unborn for purposes of positively producing a male child. Gender of the unborn can be determined by sonogram at about five months gestation but now sonogram is not the only means of determining gender now the mothers blood can be tested early in the pregnancy to determine gender. This is a recent discovery which will enable even larger numbers of unborn females to be aborted. Why is the public so shocked at the discovery of sex-selection abortion? It is completely within the despicable law known as Roe vs. Wade. Parents can abort their unborn chilLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 dren at any stage of gestation, for any reason, or for no reason at all. Shouldnt we have known that there would be parents with no personal, moral, or social ethics who would prefer designing their own child using abortion as the tool of preference? The killing of baby girls by abortion or at birth is pervasive in China due to the One Child policy and a preference for sons. We have often heard pro-abortion American politicians denounce China for its extreme population control program while at the same time these same politicians support and promote abortion in their own country. Now these same politicians are supporting and promoting sex-selection abortions in the USA as if it is a normal part of life and their political agenda. The Congressional Democrats recently voted down what would have been a ban on sex-selection abortions. These Democratic supporters of targeted abortion of females publicly stated that this bill to ban sex-selection abortions is the latest tactic in the War on Women. Are these politicians brain damaged or are they hoping that the public is brain dead? What is pro-woman about killing a baby girl simply because she is female? President Obama who fathered two daughters himself has promoted and supported abortion during his entire public life. He is now revealing extreme discrimination against women by supporting the killing of baby girls simply because they are female. This is barbaric activity and has no place in civilized society. This has passed beyond civilization into moral decadence. Is this the tipping point in America for abortion? In recent years reliable polling has shown that more than half the citizens in the USA are pro-life and against abortion at any stage for any reason. Is this newly revealed sex-selection abortion the incentive that will spur those who are undecided to take a stand for life? May it be so. Mabel Ryan President, Life Education Ministry, Inc. Fusion CentersDo not take my word. Check it out for yourself. Several times Glenn Beck has aired a video of a person describing how they (those who mean to take over) plan to eliminate the 75 percent of the population they deem surplus, using injections of germs, or viruses. Pipe dream? Apparently not. My take on the video was some kind of kook, not any longer. This is the real thing Jesse Ventura, has a video on Youtube, dealing with Fusion Centers (concentration camps,) FEMA Camps. Enter: The True Facts about FEMA Camps Youtube. 44 minutes. Halliburton did the construction, and they are stocked with injections, and coffins. Rows and rows of plastic coffins. Staggering. See them for yourself. Everyone is vying for the big prize: America. Will we be swallowed by the socialists, communists, globalists, or Jihadists? We are very popular. Shock of shocks. The ACLU is questioning the purpose of these Fusion Centers. Jessie Ventura is not the only one who is concerned about them. When both sides are suspicious, something must be afoot Any of these options appeal to you? I opt out of any of these alternatives. I opt for liberty. I like it. A lot. D.I. LarsonOak Run: no walkingI want to commend and support Decca for not allowing walking on the boulevard. My wife and I have been living in Oak Run for over 14 years and have walked the roads of Oak Run to the amount of 20,000 miles, and have witnessed many close calls on the boulevard. Im thrilled that Decca did this before there is a bad accident. There are many roads in Oak Run where we can walk and be safe. Yogi Andrew Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who might have an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the lives of the people in our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Howard and Arlene Mayberry. Howard and Arlene were both born and raised in Decatur, Illinois. Howard was one of eight children. His father worked maintenance in some of the major factories located in the town and in spite of his long hours, the children were no stranger to poverty. In 1951, the Korean War was in progress and Howard left school at the ripe old age of 17 to join the U.S. Army. Basic Training and Advanced Training were a treat for the young man as it was the first time he had new clothes on his back and access to the all you can eat buffets that Uncle Sam provided. Immediately following his training, he received orders for Korea. He jokingly tells how he protested to his 1st Sergeant that he couldnt go to Korea because he was only 17. The reply he got was either go to Korea or go to jail for 10 years. Naturally, Howard went to Korea. Trained in heavy equipment mechanics, while Howard served for nearly a year and a half in Korea, he was awarded four Bronze Stars and the Syngman Rhee Medal. Grateful to be alive, he returned home and was discharged in 1954. Following his discharge from the service, Howard took a job at a munitions plant in Decatur. He caught the eye of a young girl who also worked the line there by the name of Arlene. She was enchanted with his full head of blond hair. When she maneuvered to get him to ask her out, he went to her house and was told by her mother, Oh, youre the one she talks about all the time. Eight months later, they were on their way to Corinth, Mississippi, to get married. No waiting period was required in Mississippi at the time and since the couple had no desire for a big wedding, heading to Corinth made total sense. Upon their return to Decatur, Howard took a job with the Mueller Company, a firm that manufactured valves for gas and water equipment. Starting in the maintaining and operating of the heavy machinery, he worked his way up to tool & die maker after five years. He stayed with that company for a total of 40 years until his retirement. Music had always been a part of Howards life. He began singing as a child and after getting out of the service; he picked up a guitar and learned to play. His talent and hard work paid off and soon he had a band playing in all of the honkytonks and clubs in the Decatur area. Making extra money for his family and developing some heavy duty contacts, soon he was associated with Wanda Jackson. Wanda is a country singer of major note and is a kissing cousin to Howard. While socializing, Howard and Wanda were playing and singing together for a few friends when they noticed that the crowd was over flowing their house. A close bond between the two has prevailed ever since. Back in the sixties, within a few months of being with Wanda, Howard and his band were opening for many acts including George Jones; Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins and Ferlin Husky. He appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and was offered the opportunity to travel with Roy Clark on tour. Howard has always loved his music, but he loved his family more. At the time, he had a young daughter, Julie, and his beautiful wife Arlene. His employment at the plant was steady and paid well so he choose to stay near home and not go on the road. Years later, when Howard met up with Roy again, he reminded him of their conversation. Roy told Howard, You made the right choice, and Howard had to agree. Since those early days, many things have changed. Arlene and Howard have raised three children; Julie, Howard Junior and Carol. Howard Junior is carrying on the family musical tradition in Nashville where he owns his own studio and is a drummer with his own band. For 57 years Howard and Arlene have been happily married and in their own words, Richly blessed by God. Along with three children, they enjoy six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Howards Mother is 102 years of age which has been an added blessing to them. Howard continues to perform at parties and other limited engagements bringing joy and music to many people along the way. Arlene has supported his efforts throughout their life and on a trip to Corinth 40 years after their marriage, she received a special gift. They returned to the courthouse where they had received their marriage license and in front of the staff, Howard sang I Love You More and More Every Day to Arlene. There were no dry eyes in the house that day. Active bowlers, fishermen and travelers, Arlene and Howard are pleased to be living in Cherrywood where they are surrounded by scores of friends and the active life style. Everyone who knows them appreciates their sense of humor, generosity, loyalty and warmth. While they consider themselves richly blessed, Cherrywood and their friends are blessed to have them as residents.From Your Reporter:Much to my embarrassment, occasionally I get some facts wrong in my articles. An example of this occurred in last weeks Spotlight column. In that issue I stated that Sandra Brotherhoods Mom was deceased. I am pleased to say that Phyllis Yagnesak is alive and well living with her sister at Hardwood Trails. May I express my sincere apologies to Phyllis; Sandra; Bill and any one else who was inconvenienced by my error. While I try hard to get all the information straight in this column, sometimes I make a mistake. This was a big one and I am truly sorry.If there is anything you would like to see covered in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Your opinions and comments are important.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com The Right Choices For the Citiz en Maintain the health of your business Advertise in www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 8, 2012 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.This is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled or have already been held for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were second-graders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.Groups or individuals are invited to express their opinions in letters to the editor and guest columns.Persons wishing to contact the editor should call 854-3986.All letters must be signed and include a phone number and community name, including letters sent via e-mail.

Once again this week, we marked the anniversary of a very special day in the annals of American History. On June 6, 68 years ago, Allied troops began the assault on the beaches of Normandy, the invasion that would eventually lead to the end of World War II in Europe. Thousands were killed storming those beaches, but thousands of others made it through and marched into the French countryside, eventually taking charge of what had been German strongholds. Each year there are fewer and fewer D-Day survivors who are around to remember the brutal days that started by setting sail from England. The Americans who fought in World War II and took part in the great crusade against the Germans and Japanese have been called the Greatest Generation. History views these fighters favorably, rightly giving them credit for saving the freedom of Europe, if not the world. Those of us who are enjoying the benefits of that freedom should never forget the role these brave souls played in keeping the world free. Maybe some out there lost relatives in that invasion, and know personally the sacrifices that were made. Many still remember. Those Honor Flights to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II memorial have brought back memories for the veterans who have made the trip. Indeed, all those who have flown on those Honor Flights are asked to gather to be honored at Veterans Park next week, Thursday, June 14 at 10 a.m. Its just another fitting tribute for those who fought bravely in the war. So take a moment to remember the heroes. And lets always keep alive the memory of June 6, 1944.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remember D-Day and the veterans Annual message to the graduates LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jackie Porter tells her side of the storyI write this letter asking you to consider helping me get my side of the story out to your readers. The Star-Banner continually attacks me in their editorials. They allow letters to the editor that are lies and they do not fact check the content. I will not be bullied by their relentless smearing of my name, and will not retreat. At age 25, in 1984, I had a vision and opened my first retail plant nursery and garden center. I did not marry into the business (I married in 1981) I sold my personal car for the down payment for the first Porters store property, there was no Porter family fortune. I stood up against the big box stores for 20 years, sold my interest in the business when it was still thriving, and I retired. I am truly a business person with hard work ethics, honesty and integrity. My customer service was top notch, my employees trusted and respected me. The school system should be run the same way not by a sword and not with fear of retaliation. Students, parents, employees and taxpayers should be heard and their ideas and solutions taken into consideration. I have exposed the waste of taxpayers money, most identified to me by stakeholders (employees and taxpayers). I do listen and take action. I have stood up for the taxpayers, children and employees during my four-year term as an elected School Board member, and for doing so been demonized. I will fund the needs of our classrooms first. My three opponents are current six-figure salaried school administrators who have a combined 70 years employed with Marion County Public schools, taking home week after week a pay check from you. They still do not have the right formula for educating our students. Marion County Public Schools rank 44th out of 67 school districts, this is unacceptable. We have the opportunity to take back our school system. I am not status quo. I was not status quo in the retail world of big box stores but I succeeded and, with the community, we will succeed in educating our children to their fullest potential and reach my goal to be in the top 20 school districts in the state. Our children deserve it, our community deserves it. I need your vote in the Republican primary for Superintendent of Schools, on Aug. 14. You will not be disappointed. Jackie PorterSex-selection abortionAmericas liberal faction has crossed the Rubicon and taken a decisive, irrevocable step which reveals forever their lack of concern for women of any age Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like selfstarter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these students steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the students who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computerchair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done. Congratulations!Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

It lays open the hypocrisy of the liberal feminism movement whose doctrine pretends to advocate for womens rights. It reveals their real goal, population control: Abort more unborn female babies which equals less women to bear more children. This is not a new objective but one that has been in operation for decades, albeit carefully disguised for public consumption. Targeting unborn females for abortion is nothing new in the USA, but until the recent public exposure of Planned Parenthoods gender-specific abortions, it was not widely known by the public.

Two people face charges in connection with the theft of a cell phone. Jonathan Irizarry Colon, 24, of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of grand theft, and Marjorie Gonzalez-Roman, 37, also of Southwest 150th Lane Road, was accused of tampering with evidence. According to deputies, Colon stole the cell phone from a desk counter at a clinic where GonzalezRoman was awaiting treatment. Later, deputies arrived at the home of the couple. As they approached the woman, they heard a noise and she was accused of throwing the disputed cell phone into a drainage culvert. Marion Oaks Utilities was called and the culvert cover was removed for examination. A cell phone was located under a drainage pipe and matched the serial number of the stolen phone. Both suspects were charged. In addition, Colon was charged with violation of probation for a previous offense. Colons bond was $2,000 on the theft charge, but he was held without bond for the probation violation. Gonzalez-Roman was released on $5,000 bond. Hector HernandezAcosta, 31, of Northeast 40th Place, was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped for traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of West State Road 40 in the 5200 block. He produced an ID from Honduras, and failed the field sobriety test. He was taken to jail and his breath registered at .221 and .227, nearly three times the legal limit. Michael W. Hunter Jr., 27, of Northwest 21st Place, was accused of tampering with evidence and drug possession less than 20 grams. A deputy was trying to make a traffic stop of Hunters vehicle on State Road 200 in the 7000 block for going 60 mph in a 50 mph zone. The deputy said he observed the driver throw a small bag out of the drivers window. The deputy said he could smell marijuana when he made the stop. Hunter was charged, and also given a warning for driving unknowingly while his license was suspended. A Florida Highlands woman was accused of stealing from a man whose house she was cleaning. Khrishawnnah Lee Young, 38, of Southwest 157th Lane, allegedly took a ring and pawned it. Deputies found that Young had pawned the ring at the 14 Karat Gold Center in a car wash in the 9500 block of State Road 200.

The voluntary ban was implemented in April when drought conditions across the county began to worsen. However, rain brought by tropical storms Alberto and Beryl over the past few weeks significantly reduced wildfire concerns. As of Monday, the drought index reported a county average of 227 on a scale of 0 to 800, which is well below the severe drought range that begins at 700. In contrast, when the voluntary burn ban was implemented, the drought index registered as high as 651 in some areas. 000BP0I T OP REASONS T O REMO VE TREES They are dead or diseased They are causing property damage Storm damage Construction Liability & maintenance issues WHY GRIND STUMPS?

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 What is called Golfs Toughest Test returns to The Olympic Club in San Franciso on June 14-17, where it is claimed that the worlds best players will be thoroughly challenged, physically and mentally, by the Lake Course. Here in Pun Alley everyone will be mentally challenged to enjoy some golfing stories.Seniors gameJohn trudged into his house and laid down his golf bag. How was your game? asked his wife, Judy. I was hitting the ball OK, but my eyesights gotten so bad I couldnt see where the ball went. shrugged John Well, youre 79 years old, said Judy. You cant expect everything to be like it was. Why dont you take my brother Jimmy along? But hes 85 and he doesnt even play golf, protested John. But hes got perfect eyesight, Judy pointed out. He can watch the ball for you. So the next day John teed off with Jimmy watching. He swung and the ball disappeared down the fairway. Do you see it, do you see it asked John in anticipation. Yep! Jimmy answered. Well where is it exclaimed John. I forgot, said Jimmy.Par?Henry was playing by himself on a gorgeous clear morning and had just finished the first two holes. On the third he hit a screamer down the middle. He lined up his second with a 3-iron, but shanked it. It hit a tree, ricocheted back, hit him between the eyes and he dropped dead on the fairway. At the Pearly Gates St. Peter asked, Who are you? Henry Chapman. St Peter looked at his clipboard and scratched his head. Ive got no record of you being due; how did you get here? In two.Sort PuttsTwo robbers with clubs went golfing, but they didnt play the fairway. They have just developed a new golf club to be used when you are not sure which club is best. It is called the waffle iron. The reason we never see politicians playing golf is its too much like their work, trapped in one bad lie after another. Frustration in golf is exhibited by using course language. Outdoor lights were recently put up at a golf course for people who like swinging nightclubs. The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you cant see him laughing. Toms son is so good at golf hes been offered a full scholarship to medical school. Sure shotTwo detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez. How was he killed? asked one detective. With a golf gun, the other detective replied. A golf gun! What is a golf gun? I dont know. But it sure made a hole in Juan.Smart studentStudent: Let me get this straight. The less I hit the ball, the better I am doing. Pro: Now youve got it! Student: Then why hit it at all?No partnerA guy came home from the golf course and said, Im not playing golf with Bill anymore. His wife asked, Why not? Tell me, would you play with a guy who slices every drive into other fairways, doesnt yell fore when hes shooting near other people, rips up more sod than a bulldozer, loses more balls than he brings, drinks too much, and tells lousy jokes? he asked. f course not, she said. Well, neither will Bill.ProfessionalsA doctor and a lawyer met up in the clubhouse after a round of golf. The doctor said, Hey, hows your golf game these days? Not bad. Im finally shooting in the mid-seventies, said the lawyer. Honestly? the doctor asked. Whats that got to do with it?Who or what?A husband and wife on vacation in Florida decided to visit the local country club for a round of golf. The husband rented clubs for himself and his wife, but the pro shop had only one bag. The wife insisted that the husband go out and play. He was paired with another gentleman. After finishing the seventh hole the husband looked curiously across the green to see his wife and another woman teeing off on the fourth hole. Everything all right? the second guy asked. Oh, sure, said the husband. It seems my wife found an old bag to play with. The guy looked over at the women. Yeah, mine, too.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. U.S. Open golf calls for a trip down Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Read the classifieds in the singing of Jesus Loves Me. Then the Joyful Notes (absent one note) with Linda Aker, Trudy Harrsch and Ann Bellis, accompanied by Ardith Thomas sang Think About His Love for Pastors confirmation. In honor of his years in the Navy, the members all sang Anchors Aweigh. Warren Erickson, marked Pastors marriage in 1970 to Marsha by singing a solo, Youll Never Walk Alone. The Joyful Notes Trio then recognized Pastors seminary years (1979-1982) with a song, Life in Jesus. When Pastor Ed was called to Florida he initially had to move alone so he brought his dog with him for company. So the members all joined in to tease him with the song That Doggie in the Window. Pastor Ed has become known as the piano playing singing pastor which he often does at worship services. Irene Henderson devoted this song to him by singing In My Heart There Rings a Melody. Lynn Barrett, sang a Simple Song for Pastors future life. Finally the Joy vocal choir sang The Lord Bless You for the Benediction. After a delicious meal catered by the Oak Run Caterers, there was a lot of toasting of Pastor Holloway. A member of the original Call Committee said that after interviewing many potential pastors she knew that Rev. Holloway would be the right one just by the way he got out of the car when coming to the interview. The Committee was looking for someone who would be an available minister to his congregation and a good listener and Pastor Ed fit those criteria. One of the Stephen Ministers commended Pastor Ed for his initiative in helping to develop this ministry at Joy. Another said she had learned why Pastor Ed was patient and willing to wait because as he said, God is in control, you wait because it is always in Gods time. Others praised him for helping them through hard times, especially one who had a heart attack and heart surgery. A new member said she was so impressed with how Pastor Ed does so much for a lot of people even when they are not members of the church such as, providing weddings and baptisms. Another praised Pastor Eds inspiring Daily Devotionals on the church website, www.joyocala.org. Pastor Ed was allowed to have the last word at this event. However he had to admit that he was quite overwhelmed by the many positive comments. He thanked his church staff for all their devotion and hard work and especially those who helped to put this event together. He said this was like grace to him and coming to Joy Lutheran Church was truly a gift. JOYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Turner graduated Thursday from North Marion High.

Friday, June 8, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 8, 2012 www.smcitizen.com You may watch the value of your property, home or retirement investment savings struggle in the current economy, and may be wondering about ways to protect your family in the event of an unforeseen event. One option you may not have considered is the purchase of a whole life insurance policy. It may not be something youd automatically turn to, but whole life insurance offers guaranteed 1 death benefit protection in addition to multiple tax advantages and cash value accumulation. Owning a whole life policy can be a great financial alternative, not only for the protection of your loved ones but also a financial option for your living needs.Invest in Your Loved OnesThe primary promise of life insurance, of course, is that your loved ones will be protected in the event of your death. And with a whole life policy, your death benefit is guaranteed,1 whether the payout comes in a matter of years or decades. This is a product that provides protection in the long-term interests of those you care for most, as well as your own peace of mind. Invest in Your FutureBut, what you may not know is that a whole life insurance policy is much more than protection against the unknown. It also provides you with tax-deferred cash value that accumulates over time. In the event of sudden unforeseen or happily anticipated expenses, it provides a readily available source of funds.2 And, in the long run, it can also supplement your retirement income.2 Any kind of financial strategy these days seems fraught with uncertainty, so its important to consider carefully what vehicles work best for your own circumstances.

It begins when hes asked to identify a body because his name was found on the newly murdered man. All of a sudden The past was coming back. All of it. The dead, it seemed, were digging their way out of the ground now. Because as Copeland stares at the corpse the tattoo on the left arm is unmistakable. Twenty years earlier four teenagers at a summer camp broke curfew, walked into the surrounding woods, and vanished. Later only two bodies were found. One of the unaccounted for was Pauls 17-year-old sister Camille. In the morgue the boy who went missing with her is lying on a slab. If he escaped the serial killer, Paul reasons, perhaps his sister did too. Wanting desperately to follow up this new piece of evidence, Paul is nevertheless embroiled in a challenging rape case in which the defendants are privileged frat boys from wealthy families and the victim is a hapless teenage exotic dancer/ prostitute. Their influential parents, determined to see their sons acquitted, begin digging into Pauls past and that of other family members. In the process, shocking and painful secrets long withheld from Copeland himself are revealed. Paul is still grieving the loss of his young wife, dead from cancer, and trying to raise his six-year-old The past comes to life in this story BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington daughter as a single dad. Thus, Paul is challenged on several levels from his shattered beliefs in those hes known all his life to pressure exerted on the outcome of the rape case. Though plot is a greater asset to Coben than character, he does craft a pretty topnotch story, and it wouldnt be right to give too much of it away. It is enough to say that the stoic protagonist refuses to let demons from the past defeat him. A really fast read. THE WOODS By Harlan Coben May 30th celebrationResidents of Cherrywood celebrated Memorial Day on the traditional date of May 30. The wreath-laying was part of the event. See the Cherrywood column, Page 13. In a unanimous vote at its Tuesday meeting, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners voted to make recycling in Marion County even more convenient by approving an agreement with Waste Pro of Ocala to provide single-stream recycling at county recycling centers. Single-stream recycling will eliminate the need for county residents to separate items into cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum and other categories before recycling. Citizens will be able to dispose of all items in the same box at county recycling centers. According to the fiveyear contract, Waste Pro of Ocala will be responsible for constructing a regional material recovery facility in Marion County as well as for transportation of the recyclables from county recycling centers to the facility. Marion County will receive 55 percent of the revenue from the sale of the recyclable material. This revenue, combined with cost savings due to the new recycling processes, is anticipated to cover the cost of the expanded services. The city of Ocala recently went to curbside single-stream recycling, and removed all neighborhood recycling centers in the city limits. County residents must now drive to one of the county recycling centers that are open to the public. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Marion County currently ranks tenth out of Floridas 67 counties in a statewide ranking of each countys adjusted recycling rate. Marion County Solid Waste officials hope singlestream recycling will help improve that rate even more. The single-stream recycling program is expected to begin Sept. 1.
