The winning candidates in the Aug. 14 primary election will advance to the general election on Nov. 6. Sheriff hopefuls stress qualifications BY JIM CLARK EditorIf any people had any doubt that the race for Marion County Sheriff hadnt gotten fully under way, a visit to the State Road 200 Coalition meeting Monday might have changed their minds. Republican candidates Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn each presented a different assessment of qualifications needed to be the countys top law enforcement officer. Blair, speaking first, retired after 35 years with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, saying he was the longest serving deputy in the history of the organization. He said that he worked his way through the ranks, eventually becoming major of special investigations. He held up a color-coded chart that showed that only two counties in Florida have a sheriff who did not come up through the ranks. One is Union County, the other is Marion County. Sheriff Ed Dean was an attorney when originally appointed to the position. Blair noted that it takes five years of experience for a deputy to become a detective, five years to be a sergeant, 10 years to be a lieutenant, but then we look at the sheriff. I can tell you that I am the only candidate in this race with actual law enforcement experience. Blair said the Sheriffs Office is top heavy. My biggest concern is that the organization is a bureaucratic empire. He said the state requires one supervisor for every six deputies, but in Marion County its one for every 3.5 deputies. Our deputies are being supervised twice as much. Blair added, We rank in the bottom 10 for deputy sheriffs serving you every day. We rank in the bottom 10 for starting salaries for deputy sheriffs. We are losing good qualified deputy sheriffs. He added that 44 left the agency since the first of the year, four by retirement, and the others just left. We must put more boots on the ground. He said that the concern used to be Miami moving north, now its Orlando moving north. Without those boots on the ground, were Chris Blair Dan Kuhn West Port graduation West Port High School graduate Mariah Fernandez adjusts her cap prior to graduation Friday morning. West Port High School graduates Kevin Jones and Cassie Mrod share a joke before graduation ceremonies began Friday morning. The phone was later collected by school officials they also took car keys and returned to graduates after the ceremony. Graduation was originally scheduled for Thursday night, but the days rain forced the postponement of the outdoor ceremony on the schools football field. That failed to dampen the ethusiasm of those who received their diplomas. going to be in serious trouble. He criticized Kuhn, who holds the position of undersheriff, for 17 promotions when he announced his candidacy. We are going up, we should be going down. Under my command we will have one chief of staff, not three. We will not have an undersheriff. We must move that money down. We must reallocate our manpower and resources. He concluded, It is the peoples choice, but make sure that we put experience where it needs to be. Kuhn then addressed the crowd, PLEASESEESHERIFF, PAGE4 BY JIM CLARK EditorTwo commercial establishments along the State Road 200 corridor were burglarized last week. On the morning of June 7, workers at Divine Providence in the 8800 block discovered that the store had been illegally entered through side doors and money and a cell phone were taken. The day before, workers arriving at the Oasis Restaurant in the 7600 block discovered that the establishment had been entered and cash taken. The entry was from the front and was made by breaking glass. Two commercial establishments along 200 corridor burglarized BY JIM CLARK EditorSome of the political races are over before they start. Qualifying ended Friday for the upcoming local election cycle, and several candidates will face no opposition when voters go to the polls in August and November. County Commissioner Charlie Stone decided this year to leave the county governing body and make a run for state representative in District 22. Its already been successful as he faces no opposition and will go to Tallahassee next January. In county races, Tax Collector George Albright, Clerk of the Circuit Court David Ellspermann and Property Appraiser Villie Smith, all Republicans, drew no opposition and are automatically re-elected. In addition to Stone, Dennis Baxley and Marlene H. OToole have been re-elected to the Florida House, and Charlie Dean has been re-elected to the Florida Senate. In other county races, Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn will square off in the Republic primary Aug. 14 for sheriff, with the winner facing Bernie DeCastro, Constitution Party, and Judson Cauthen Spence Jr., write-in, in the general election. Only Republicans may vote in the priStone elected state rep without foe for SW area Stone PLEASESEECANDIDATES, PAGE4 Marions Most Wanted Douglas Aldridge 43, felony violation of probation fraud-credit card, grand theft less than $5,000, possession of hydrocodone. Kathryn Chase, 45, felony violation of probation burglary of a dwelling. Marcus McCloud, 43, felony bench warrant, failure to appear status conference driving while license revoked as habitual offender. Marvin McHellion, 26, felony violation of probation possession of cocaine. Maronda Reed, 22, violation of probation warrant for retail theft. Clinton Yancey, 22, felony bench warrant, failure to appear status conference possession of cocaine. Marion County Sheriffs Office just accepted the first of 36 police vehicles, scheduled to arrive in the next two months. The new vehicles will replace aging patrol vehicles. The American-built Fords are the latest in law enforcement auto technology. These new vehicles were selected for handling and performance. The Police Interceptor sedan allwheel drive has the 3.5L V6 eco-boost engine. It was described as being a game-changer by one of the deputies. Although this engine boasts 365 horsepower, it is estimated to provide at least a 20 percent increase in our current fuel mileage, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The increased fuel mileage could result in a savings of an estimated $500,000+ per year once the entire fleet has been upgraded, Cochran added. Also, the vehicles will have back-up sensors that will warn officers when they are near anything when the vehicle is in reverse. In FY 2009-2010, the Board of County Commission earmarked $442,000 for the purchase of replacement Patrol vehicles, per the Sheriffs request. Last FY 2010-2011, the Sheriff asked and received approval that all returned funds in the amount of Sheriffs Office receiving new vehicles $2,154,107 in the MSTU budget and $702,515 in county-wide funds also be earmarked for replacement vehicles. Using the $442,000 from FY 20092010, the agency was able to order 14 Police Interceptor sedans and 2 Ford Police Interceptor SUV models. Of those vehicles ordered, 1 sedan and 1 SUV will be outfitted for use by the K-9 Unit and will allow them to test which one will be a best fit for the unit. The Sheriffs Office is receiving vehicles on a regular schedule, about 4-5 Police Interceptors each week. So, there should be between 60-70 new vehicles in the next few months. Since these are brand new vehicle models, they are custom building everything we are adding to the vehicles. The Sheriffs Office is installing radios and computers, and will have striping/decals done. The Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team arrested Travis S. Rath of Ocala and the 25 year-old suspect will now face numerous charges. Rath was arrested at 5 p.m., Monday, June 11, along Southwest 27th Avenue, Ocala. While putting handcuffs on Rath, drug agents seized $39,520 in cash, 25 pounds of packaged marijuana that has a value of $57,000 and two assault rifles. Rath is charged with: Armed trafficking in marijuana Cultivation of marijuana Possession of a firearm during a felony Possession of paraphernalia 3 counts of sale and possession of marijuana If you know anything about Raths activities, call Crime Stoppers at 352-3687867.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE INNOCENT By David Baldacci There are many remarkable episodes in this tour de force of storytelling, starting with Will Robie, a government hit man who rids the nation of its most formidable enemies. A true professional, Robie never questions his assignments. Yet on this one occasion he disobeys orders at his peril. Poised with gun cocked, he looks down on a young sleeping mother, a small child asleep by her side, a baby in a carrier nearby. Something strikes him as terribly wrong with the assignment. As he hesitates, shots are fired through the bedroom window, killing both mother and child with one bullet. Then Robie is fired upon. Thereafter, in a plot so complex its almost byzantine, Robie is on the move, dodging bullets from his former employers and accompanied by a precocious teenage girl whose parents were mysteriously murdered and who finds herself in danger. Julie Getty escaped abusive foster parents and ran home only to find her parents being held at gunpoint and her mother screaming for the girl to run. The last thing she heard her mother tell her captives was that Julie didnt know anything. To stay alive and protect Julie, Robie has to be on constant alert. But as he tells us, professional assassins are unique in this respect: When you were on a mission you looked for things that other people would never focus on. Like entry and exit points. Always have at least two of each. Gunsight angles, positions from which others can strike back at you. Sizing up opponents without seeming to do so. Trying to ferret out intent by reading body cues alone. The pacing here is flawless, the prose punchy, the turns twisty, and the ending climatic if just a tad predictable. This is a thriller sure to appeal to a Hollywood producer and sure to bring out droves of stage mothers eying the role of Julie Getty. A fine nail-biting read. Tale of a government hit man BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comDiana Morgan, who brought The New Pretenders, with its cast of 25 and a 12 piece orchestra, to the OTOW stage nine years ago, is coming out of retirement. Diana will co-produce and direct, in conjunction with assistant director Larry Wilver, the 2013 edition of TNP .The Lions ClubIn last weeks coverage of the Memorial Day observation sponsored by the OTOW Lions Club, it was stated that Kenneth Colen, assisted by Lion President John Johnson, placed the Memorial Wreath before the audience. The statement should have read that Robert Colen and Lion Steve Snowman placed the wreath. Please accept my apology for this error. OTOW HAPPENINGS saying, I have a day job thats very serious, second in command. He says he spends extra hours to get out and talk to people. He added, I agree that experience matters, but youre not electing a deputy sheriff. Youre electing a sheriff, somebody to be at the top of the agency. Ive been a chief of staff since 2005. Sheriff Dean chose to have three chiefs of staff; I wouldnt do it the same way. I would do things differently, but I would give Sheriff Dean credit for a lot of the good things that he brought from a business and efficiency point of view. Talking about the turnover issue, Kuhn said, We actually track turnover. We measure less than 1 percent turnover at the agency; for the southeast region of the United States, the average is 3 percent. He also talked about the sheriffs budget, which is $68 million. Four years ago it was $77 million. You dont develop a budget in a vacuum. The sheriff doesnt set his own budget. He has to work hand in hand with the county commissioners in setting that budget. We are a county thats been hit harder than some counties around us the sheriffs budget is tied to property values. Speaking about manpower, Kuhn said, Even though we have fewer deputies than some of the surrounding counties, our crime rate is half the statewide average. Our crime clearance rate is twice the statewide average. We do not have a broken agency. We have an agency that has been applauded by the governors office, we have an agency that is among the very best not just in Florida but in the United States. I would stack our people up against anyone. Kuhn addressed his background, being born and raised in Marion County. He graduated from the University of Florida law school, and came out as a prosecutor. He became general counsel in 2005. I went back and became a sworn law enforcement officer. I crawled on my belly, I shot, I ended up top shot in the class, but I also graduated top of my class in recruit school. I understand what it takes to be the sheriff. For three budget cycles Ive been working with the County Commission, trying to develop a budget that meets the needs of the citizens in the community but at the same time balances the need for public safety. He said that he doesnt disagree with Blair that over time were going to have to eliminate officials and put boots on the ground. He said that two captains retired recently. One was on the road and we created two deputies to replace the captain, and one was in the jail. That posiSHERIFFCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 tion was eliminated and we created two line level employees. He closed by saying that You just dont want a good cop, you want someone who understands that weve got a lot of good cops. Im proud of what they do, but executive leadership and what it takes to run the agency, I believe I have that skill set. The primary election is Aug. 14. Only Republicans may vote in the GOP race for sheriff, since there are opponents for the general election. mary in August. For school superintendent, Jackie Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner will run in the Republican primary, with the winner to face Democrat Diana Greene in November. Only Republicans may vote in August. In County Commission District 1, Mike Amsden, the incumbent, is being challenged by David R. Moore in the Republican primary. The winner faces write-in James Bailey in November. For District 3, incumbent Stan McClain is challenged by Jeffrey Gold in the Republican primary, with Patricia Reed and Robert Brown as write-ins on the ballot in November. Reed had originally been listed as a Democrat. In District 5, four Republicans, including Earl Arnett, Pat Gabriel, Francine Johannesen and Butch Verrando will be on the ballot Aug. 14, with the winner to face Democrat Jessica Hadley in November. In all three County Commission races, only Republicans may vote in August. School Board races are different, since by law the competition is non-partisan.

For supervisor of elections, Barbara Ruse and Wesley B. Wilcox, both Republicans, will square off in the GOP primary, with the winner to face Judge Cochran in November. Only Republicans can vote in August for supervisor of elections.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Fathers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers.Tripped upA mother was taking her young son for a ride in the car. On their way home, he asked, Mother, where are all the infernal idiots? Why, Son, she replied, they only happen to be on the highway when your father is driving.Quadrupled problemsWith the advent of fertility drugs more and more quadruplets are born annually in any major city. This has resulted in a common occurrence that when one starts howling, the others will join in until you have a cacophony of screams. Many an exasperated and fatigued father now awakens his wife in the middle of the night complaining, Four crying out loud.Big bad dadJust recently during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight? The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. I cant dear, she said. I have to sleep in Daddys room. A long silence was broken at last by his shaking little voice, The big sissy.Pop cornFathers Day always worried James. He was afraid that he would get a gift he couldnt afford. A man wanted to have breakfast in bed on Fathers Day. His kids put a cot in the kitchen. Its hard for a five-footsix father to explain to his six-foot-one son why junk food is bad for you. Dad can always count on getting one thing on Fathers Day all the bills from Mothers Day. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. Mother fish to school of baby fish, Your father, may he rest in peace, was considered quite a catch.By the numbersFather was completely lost in the kitchen and never ate unless someone prepared a meal for him. When Mother was ill, however, he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items. Dad returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had one bag of sugar, two-dozen eggs, three hams, four boxes of detergent, five boxes of crackers, six eggplants, and seven green peppers.All wetBefore performing a baptism, the minister said to the young father, Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it? I think so, the man replied. My wife has made appetizers and we have a caterer coming to provide plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests. I dont mean that, the priest responded. I mean, are you prepared spiritually? Oh, sure, came the reply. Ive got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey.Cant please em allMost of Rons his friends were already married while he just bounced from one relationship to the next. A friend asked him, Whats the matter, are you looking for the perfect woman? Cant you find anyone who suits you? Ron replied. I meet a lot of nice girls, but as soon as I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesnt like them. So I keep on looking. Listen, his friend suggested, Why dont you find a girl whos just like your Mother? Weeks passed before Ron and his friend met again. So Ron. Did you find the perfect girl yet? Ron answered, Yes I found one just like Mom. My mother loved her, they became great friends. Excellent! So are you and this girl engaged yet? Im afraid not, Ron replied, My Father cant stand her!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. This weekend, time to enjoy some humor about fathers PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Celebrating another Fathers Day without my father I cannot help thinking how much has changed since he died. If he were to return today, he would find things quite different. In all reality, this is not my fathers world anymore. I might just as well say it. This is not my fathers country anymore, either. The country my father loves seems to have all but disappeared. During his time, a deep-seated patriotic pride permeated throughout our country. We were proud of what our forefathers had accomplished and we were willing to die to preserve that heritage. Today, it seems the past is simply the past and has no bearing whatsoever on the present. This may be why history books are being rewritten today. This, however, is a fallacy encouraged by those who do not know the right hand from their left hand. In our country today, you are either far right or far left and nothing in between. Whatever happened to people with common sense? Perhaps that ancient anonymous philosopher was right when he said the problem with common sense was that it really was not that common anymore. Perhaps the demise of the common man explains this phenomenon. Or it could be that most people today have been educated beyond their common sensibilities. There was a time in my fathers country when people were proud of what they did. A few tried to get money without working for it. In my fathers country, there was a great deal of pride in working for what you had and not depending upon somebody with a handout. In my fathers country, there was a deep sense of accomplishment in earning what you had by the sweat of your brow. The only people sweating these days are politicians up for re-election. In my fathers country, there was no such thing as arbitrary handouts but plenty of hands out. It was considered our patriotic duty to help our neighbor when they were in trouble. Nobody looked to Uncle Sam to solve his or her problems. It was a community affair not a government mandate. In fact, if the truth were known, and evidently it is not, they stayed as far away from Uncle Sam as possible only communicating with him once a year on April 15. In those days, they saluted the flag, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were right proud to do so. Not one of them could imagine anybody ashamed of doing that in public. Today a lot is being said about the separation of church and state. My father would not understand the way some people are interpreting it. According to what is going on today they are trying to keep the church out of the state but make good and sure, the state runs the church. Isnt that why we had a revolution in the first place? In my fathers country, there was a separation between government control and people pursuing life, liberty and happiness. Oh, for those good old days. Also, in my fathers country baseball was a national sport not a business. I am not quite sure when it became a business but my father never thought it was. He often took me to the ball field on a Saturday afternoon to have fun, enjoy the game and eat the worlds most delicious hotdog. At least he said they were the worlds most delicious hotdogs. Our purpose in going was just to have fun. He did his share of making fun and harassing the other teams fans but it never crossed his mind to physically beat one of them nearly to death. If I remember correctly, wedgies were the order of the day. When our team won we celebrated and high-fived everybody around us. When our team lost, we determined with everything within us to slaughter them the next week on the field. When we said slaughter, we were talking figuratively. Credit was something my fathers generation frowned on. As a young person, I had in my mind to buy a bicycle. I took my father to the store to look at that prized bike. Well, my father stammered, as he looked the bike over. How much money youve got saved for this bike? I knew the lecture that was to follow. If you could not afford to buy something, you could not afford to have it. How many times have I heard that? Perhaps if my father could come back for a day we could send him to Washington, D.C. and explain to them this whole idea that if you cannot afford something you cannot afford something. It seemed to make sense to me and I was only a young person at the time. I guess when you get older you lose a lot of that good common sense. Then if elected and go to Washington, D.C., you leave all of that good common sense back home with your constituency who wonder what they elected you for. The verse of Scripture that was very important to my father was, And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it (Psalms 90:17 KJV). It may not be the same country my father loved, but I can still operate on the same principles that made him a patriotic father, and pray, Establish thou the work of our hands.

her first husband she had two children; Robert and Rene. At 11 years of age, Robert, or Bobby as Norellen calls him, was diagnosed with diabetes. She told me he cried because he wouldnt be able to join the military. After her children were off to school she worked in such diverse fields as real estate sales and the Early Learning Center toy store. When her husband decided to move to Arizona, she went first and got a job selling real estate. When he joined her, the situation in their relationship did not improve. After 20 years, she divorced him and set off on her own. For several years she owned and operated a craft and hobby shop in Alpena, Michigan. After completing her education, she took a job with the City of Lincoln Park as their Director of Senior Programs. In 1998 she retired and moved to Florida. Her son Bobby didnt let a little thing like diabetes get in his way. At age 16 he volunteered and became a camp counselor for diabetic children in Marquette, Michigan. Soon he had his sister Rene working with him during the summer months in camps not only in Marquette but also just north of Lapeer, Michigan. Bobby received a degree from Michigan State University and worked his way up to Program Director of the camps. At halftime during the Michigan/Michigan State game in 2001 he proposed to his girl friend. He wore a hat saying, I asked, and she wore a hat that read, I accepted. In November of 2001, theFriday, June 15, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 devastating attack on our country had a profound effect on Bobby and his whole family. He called his Mom to tell her that he had just volunteered to become a fire fighter to which Norellen responded, Good for you. I just volunteered to work with the Red Cross. Tragically, on Dec. 26, 2002, Bobby was killed in a hunting accident while visiting his father in Wisconsin. This young man who had been described by friends and family as the life of the party and a great friend to everyone was now suddenly gone. Not one to be kept down, Norellen came to a realization that she had several nephews and nieces in military service. After 9/11 Bobby had written to each of them, his cousins, to express his deep affection and support. In Bobbys honor and memory, she began the program, Support our Soldiers. S.O.S. is set up to provide necessities and treats to our soldiers serving in combat areas in the Middle East and Afghanistan. S.O.S. and Norellen receive support from many different individuals and groups, among them the Cherrywood Veterans Club. The effectiveness of her work is displayed in the many large scrapbooks she has that are filled with letters and thank you notes from our troops. She also has three flags that have flown over base camps in those far off places, given to her by units that received her help. Norellen is happily married to her husband Ed. Back in 1994 they met at a singles club dinner and two years later, began their lives together. In recent years, Norellen has suffered through some serious injuries and illnesses. Hip replacements, broken ankles and COPD are just a few of the many hardships she has had to endure. Remarkably, Norellen has kept her sense of humor and gives a huge amount of credit to Ed, for his doting care and unflinching love. In spite of her limited mobility, she is active in Blessed Trinity Church; S.O.S. and she is the founder of Compassionate Friends here in Central Florida. Compassionate Friends is a support group for those parents who have lost children from what ever cause. CF offers counseling, care and resources to help parents cope with the horrific loss of a child. Norellen and her family are special people. Her daughter Rene is a neonatal nurse in Colonial Heights, Virginia. She also shares a deep love for Eds children; Joseph and Rosie Gray, who live in Ireland. Ed and Norellen have three grandchildren. We in the Cherrywood community are very fortunate to have courageous; caring; committed neighbors such as the Pickells. They are the type of people who dont ask for recognition but quietly go about making the world a better place just by being in it. Thank you Norellen and Ed for all you do and all youve done.From Your ReporterIn last weeks edition of the Spotlight, the picture of Howard and Arlene Mayberry was omitted because of a computer glitch.

Only the number of shots that it took to get to the green were counted. Thank goodness we did not have to worry about three putt holes that day. Of course for some of us it meant many shots that were just short of the green or just over the back, taking another stroke to actually get on the green. Golf can be such a mind game! The winners were: First Flight 1st place, JT Lemasters, 2nd place, Dianna Love; Second Flight 1st place, Janet Tully, 2nd place, Judy Klein, 3rd place, Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st placePatty Dougherty, 2nd place, Gayle Feeman.

Registration for vacation Bible school is available Nestled in the heart of the University of Florida on West University Avenue is a treasure trove of Judaica. The Isser and Rae Price library of Judaica is a valuable resource for those engaged in serious Jewish studies as well as the average person who has an interest in Jewish life and theology. The library is headed by a remarkable young woman and British import, Dr. Rebecca Jefferson. Her background includes studying Hebrew on two kibbutzim in Israel, solid academics in Hebrew and Jewish studies at Cambridge University, as well as a keen interest in genizahs (storage rooms for old Judaica) and old manuscripts. The reputation of the library brought her to the States where she says she is freer to pursue her Jewish spirituality. When Rebecca offered to give me a guided tour, I certainly could not pass up this opportunity. Dr. Jeffersons enthusiasm for her work and dedication to the library was evident all during my tour. In her charming British accent, she related to me the highlights and history of the library as well as allowing for some hands-on time. The library was founded in the late s as a resource for the Jewish Studies program started at UF in 1973. Jack and Samuel Price of Jacksonville who gave the money to support the creation of the library, made the first and largest endowment to libraries at the time. It was named in honor of their parents, Isser and Rae Price. In 1981, a little over 30 years ago, the library was dedicated as the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica. Rebecca liked to tell me that the core of the collection and ensuring collections were based on the 3-Ms, that is the last initial of the three major players in the library acquisitions. Rabbi Leonard Mishkin is the first m of the trinity. The Chicago rabbi had the largest collection, some 40,000 volumes at the time, in the 1970s. Authenticated by scholar and Harvard Bibliographer, Charles Berlin, who described it as superb, the collection was purchased with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the first such award to be granted to a library and was later given a matching grant from the State of Florida recognizing the cultural and historical value of the collection. Included in Rabbi Mishkins collection were festschriften (papers put together to honor other scholars) and periodicals, which give us a glimpse into the Jewish world at the turn of the last century. The festschriften contained work not widely distributed and related famous people, places and events. The second m in the librarys history is Shlomo Marenof, a scholar in Hebrew literature from Brandeis University whose collection numbered 10,000 volumes. The final m in the librarys history comes from Morgensterns Book Store in the lower East Side of New York City. Under the aegis of its first librarian, Robert Singerman, many volumes were purchased in Yiddish augmenting the librarys collection. Today, the Price Library boasted some 95,000 volumes, is considered one of the top 20 academic libraries in the world and in the top 10 for Judaic collections. There are strong rabbinical as well as strong holocaust collections. In addition there are many volumes that predate the creation of the State of Israel, when the Jewish State was Palestine under the British Mandate. There are also books on all movements in Judaism as well as texts dealing with the Jews of various American cities and countries in the world. Much genealogy can be gleaned from the vast records and lists of Jewish residents here and abroad. There were also special sections for childrens selections and I tried to find some of my old Hebrew school textbooks. Of special note are the Yiskor memorial books. These volumes, written with much pathos and reminiscence, describe the vanished communities obliterated by the Nazis during World War II. In many cases, they are the only records left of what were once flourishing Jewish communities in Europe. The library has 800 of these books, first produced in Argentina in Yiddish, then in Israel in Hebrew and in recent years, in English translation. Toward the end of my tour, I was treated to some special tomes that Dr. Jefferson had in her office. Many were haggadot, the special ritual books for Passover. One, curiously, was in Marathi script, from Bombay, India, published in 1901 for the Jews of India. Rebecca tells me that when read, the words were Hebrew! Another haggadah published in 1918 in the early days of the Soviet Union was different from the ones we use today in the fact that it appeared to be more detailed. Of course this was during a time when traditional Judaism was the norm. I was also shown a copy of LIdea Sionista, a rare Zionist journal from the early days of the Zionist movement. It was published in Italy during 190104 and Price is the only library to have a copy. Before I left, I finally had a chance to view and touch the oldest volume in the whole library, a volume from the late 1400s, of responsa, that is, letters or correspondence from rabbis to other rabbis on topics of Jewish law. The writers of the day could never imagine that the lands discovered by Columbus would one day house Judaica and that these lands would become a haven for Jews. Rae Price said in 1981, The library is something for everyone to use. It has long been needed and it will live on and on. May her words be prophetic. Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 15, 2012 This Sunday is Fathers Day, a day that doesnt get near as much attention as Mothers Day, but one that honors some of the unsung heroes in our nation. Were always hearing bad stories about fathers; just this past week there was a mega church minister who allegedly beat his daughter, for example. But for every father who has gotten into trouble, there are thousands, no, millions, who have done the right things all their lives and been there for their children. This week its time to honor them, and those who are fortunate enough to have their dads still around should do so. The family gatherings, the flowers, etc., arent the same for the third Sunday in June as they are for the second Sunday in May, but its just as important to honor dad as much as you honor mom. At some point, most of us lose our fathers and all we are left with are memories. My dad died in 2004 after a seven-year battle with dementia, which manifested itself, to the rest of the family, anyway, after my mom died in 1997. It can be a tough road. I am fortunate to have a wife who was a fabulous caregiver. Dad went into an assisted living facility shortly after mom died, and my wife volunteered there, visited regularly and even ran their bingo program. I tried to visit often, but many times I was out of town working and couldnt take part in some of the activities. Dad was a World War II veteran of the China-India-Burma Theater. He was born and raised in East St. Louis, Illinois, and I remember spending a couple of weeks out there every August (it was brutally hot) as we visited on our annual vacation. One year I flew out two weeks early, and got to stay for a month with my grandparents. Yes, you read it right. In those days I even flew sometimes. East St. Louis, I understand, has deteriorated over the years, but then it was a great place to visit. My dad took me all over the Northeast, visiting historical sites. He was a member of a group called the Catholic War Veterans, and once was the keynote speaker on Memorial Day (we always had a parade). I still miss him, and sometimes wish I could just say hello. For those of you who still have that chance, dont let it pass by. And to all the dads out there, happy Fathers Day.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Basically, in this country, we have a two-party system. Yes, there are other parties and there is the ability to be a write-in candidate, but usually its Republicans vs. Demcorats. With the closing of qualifying last week, the local political races are set, and its evident from the lists put out by the supervisor of elections that Floridas primary system needs some work. There are several races where there are no Democrats, meaning that the Republican candidates who survive the primary should be automatically elected. But state law says that if someone else qualifies for the election in November, there must be an election then, even if one major party or another is not represented. By doing this, the state disenfranchises voters of the party that is not represented on the ballot. This year, for example, there is only one Democrat running for County Commission Jessica Cookie Hadley in District 5. So having the election spread out to November is perfectly legitimate. However, the other two commission races will carry over to November, because there are write-in candidates in both races. Facing the facts, the winner of the August primary for Republicans, in which Democrats cant vote, will probably be the winner in November in Districts 1 and 3. What this means is that Democrats will have little say in who represents those districts. True, they could vote for the write-in candidate, but thats not likely. The change should be simple. The primary should be open to both parties when there is a write-in candidate, much as it already is open where there are candidates of only one party. Then the entire thing could be decided by everyone in the primary, without the expense, or farce, of taking the race to the general election. Better still, the state could change write-in candidates to what that type of candidate originally was someone whose name was written in without any previous qualifying. Many agree that the write-in system is a ploy to disenfranchise one party or another. Its time to end that possibility. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY State primary system needs an overhaul Its time for us to honor our dads Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Politics, A little knowledge is dangerousI heard directly, and read many articles in the newspapers and saw on TV, much regarding the political atmosphere at this time. Apparently the party trying to get in the White House is the most ill-informed. I listened last night to a speech Mitt Romney made and he said he had a plan to get the economy back up and running again. And theres that word again, again. All innuendo and no substance. Theres one thing youve got to give Obama credit for and thats for surrounding himself with probably three of the most intelligent people in the country, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta. Now, who does Romney have? Oh yes, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Erik Cantor. Now theres the Three Witches of Eastwick. In fact the three most dangerous people in the United States. Someone told me George W. Bush was responsible for the Second Depression, and do you know thats right. The depression of 2008 also by a Republican, when many of us lost hundreds of thousands of dollars and Bush left to Obama to salvage. And hes doing that. Those of you retired from the auto industry should be kissing Obamas shoes for saving the auto industry, just as hes saved the banking industry. How quick we forget. Jobs are not a problem, if you want to work and a lot of people on welfare dont want to work. Why should they, when they already have a golden cow? There is so much hatred out there for Obama and I wonder why. The Republicans keep bringing up the birth card but they are the jokers. When you have no facts to back you up, make up lies. I think the Native Americans call that, Speaking with Forked Tongue. It still holds true. Bill Ford OcalaMessage to graduatesCongratulations for the good advice to the graduates in your commentary section of the Citizen. I have always worked with young people from my days in the NYPD to the years I worked with the Juvenile Justice Bureau here in Florida. Lord knows, young people need plenty of positive influence during these difficult social times. As an Adjunct professor in Sociology at CF, I am very much aware of the need for positive influence on the young students.

and loving so she set out to get Fathers Day as a recognized holiday just as Mothers Day had been. Her efforts paid off and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June to be the first official Fathers Day in the United States. Presidential proclamations continued until 1972 when President Nixon established a permanent national observance on the third Sunday of June. Unfortunately, we live in a society today when the role of a father has been greatly diminished. More and more children are being born out of wedlock and have no father figure around and divorce is so prevalent that many children are raised with no dad in the immediate family circle. On Sunday, we take time to honor those men who are still courageous; loving; protective and selfless in their care of children. Society may say that dads are not necessary; not relevant or not important. For those who have fathered children or for those of us who have had a caring dad, we know better. If you are lucky enough to have a dad still alive, the red rose is a symbol of your love for him. If your father is deceased, the white rose recognizes your loss. Dont forget your dad whether he is alive or not this Sunday. Cherrywood wishes our each of our resident dads a very happy Fathers Day.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 our community. This week the spotlight shines on Norellen Pickell. Norellen was born in Detroit Michigan where she attended Holy Redeemer High School. She is a graduate of Spring Arbor College where she earned a degree in Human Services and Gerontology. Her first marriage was in July of 1967, at the same time as the Detroit Riots. She laughingly related how she had to get permission from the governor to be out after curfew. Norellen also talked about how they were stopped by a car full of uniformed police officers with drawn long guns on their way to their honeymoon. A pretty exciting honeymoon, I observed. No, not really, she laughed, not as exciting as my second one. During her marriage to Another smashing success for Cherrywood and the Social Committee took place on Saturday evening with the kickoff dinner for 100 Days of Summer. A record turnout of upwards of 250 people took part in the event enjoying a delicious chicken dinner followed by an evening of excellent entertainment. Our Social Committee led by Chairman Jay OHern did a magnificent job of getting the guests served. He was assisted by Joan and Dave Siegel; Marguerite Fiorenza; Peggy Konar; Bill Wetherby (Fred OHerns nephew who is visiting from Colorado); Monica Becotte; Claudette Cote; Nancy Archer; Bill Brotherhood; Bill Mahar and Fred OHern. The entire event was sponsored by Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management which meant the food was free and so was the entertainment. The Social Committee would like to send out a special thanks to Geri, Jim, Justin, and Fred from the CWPM staff for their support, especially Justin for almost single handedly handling the clean up. Rich Becotte handled the entertainment much to the pleasure of all who danced the night away to his vast array of songs. Rich is always a delight at our functions. In the drawing for the night that was designed to get everyones email addresses, Holly Bragdon was the winner. In addition, there were three 50/50 prizes awarded. There were some very minor missteps for the evening. For example, the serving line ran short of potato salad and committee members scattered to find more to bring in. With only a minor delay, the people all were served and for the most part took the short interruption with a good natured smile. All in all, it was a great evening and everyone had fun. The Social Committee should be justifiably proud of their work and this terrific event. Veteran honoredCherrywood resident Larry Giles, a former officer of the Cherrywood Veterans Club, received a rare honor this past Memorial Day in his home town of McKeesport and White Oak, Pennsylvania. Larry, along with four of his brothers, all veterans, received official proclamations from the Mayor for their service to this country. Larrys brothers; Ed, age 88; Jim, age 87; and Jerry, 85; all served in World War II. Larry 78 and his brother Bill, 76, served during the Korean War. Another brother, Bud, a U.S. Army veteran with the 82nd Airborne Division, passed away in 2007. There is no doubt that the Giles family has given a great deal to this country. After a ride in a convertible in the parades of both towns, the mayor issued each one of the brothers a proclamation. Brother Bud received a proclamation that was presented to his son, Michael. A Marine veteran, Larry served during the Korean War era. As one would imagine, all of the brothers are extremely close and have been all their lives. It was a rare and well deserved honor for them to be the headliners in the Memorial Day parade of their home town. Veterans Appreciation DayOn July 7, the Veterans Club will be putting on its Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Lees Chicken w/biscuit; green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy, iced tea and lemonade will be served free to all veterans and their significant others. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. and gives way to Kenny Jackson and the entertainment from 6 until 9 p.m. Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com 100 Days of Summer kickoff dinner was a success CHERRYWOOD ESTATES J EJohn Everlove Larry Giles SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE10 Editors Note: This column was edited to fit in the allotted space.

Veterans ClubOn June 9 at the Veterans Club Meeting Robert Thomas was our guest speaker. Mr. Thomas is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant Medic who has served two tours in Iran and one tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is currently the Property Manager for Ritz Veterans Village here in Ocala. Ritz is a transitional facility designed to help get veterans off the streets and back into society. With room for 47 males and three females, the facility currently has 11 men and two women. The newly remodeled rooms are filling fast as the VA in conjunction with the Volunteers of America process the paperwork and begin the challenge of changing lives. Eugene Wachsmuth received a Certificate of Appreciation for his grandson Xavier who wrote a special card that was read at the Memorial Day service. Also at the meeting, Norellen Pickell, the head of our Support our Soldiers (S.O.S.) project spoke briefly about her work with sending packages to our service personnel that are stationed overseas. (See Spotlight in this issue) At the meeting, President Bill Mahar presented Norellen with a check for $200 to help defray postage expenses and to assist in sending a touch of home to our forces in far away lands. Both Mr. Thomas and Ms. Pickell expressed a need for items for our service men and women. For the Ritz House, personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies such as paper towels; window cleaner; toilet paper and in general, those things that can keep both resident and room in good order. For our people overseas, Ms. Pickell suggested power bars; hard candy; beef jerky and all items that remind the troops of home. Starting next week, there will be boxes in the clubhouse for donations to both of these worthwhile out reach programs. If you have items please feel free to bring them by and put them into the boxes designated for these charities. In addition, if you would like to donate money for postage, make your check payable to the Cherrywood Veterans Club and designate SOS in the memo line. Just drop it by the office to Geri and know that you have made a difference. The Veterans Club appreciates all of the support that this wonderful community gives. Fathers Day4000 years ago in a quaint little place called Babylonia; there lived a boy named Elmuru. Probably seeking a raise in his allowance, one day Elmuru wrote a note to his father wishing him good health and a long life. Apparently the Dad didnt have much money to inherit. That is the first record of a Fathers Day in history. More recently, in 1909 a young lady in Spokane, Washington, by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd heard a Mothers Day sermon in her local church. Sonora had been raised by her father as her mother had died early in her childhood. She considered her father courageous; selfless Guests are welcome for just $7 per person.

Veterans ClubOn June 9 at the Veterans Club Meeting Robert Thomas was our guest speaker. Mr. Thomas is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant Medic who has served two tours in Iran and one tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is currently the Property Manager for Ritz Veterans Village here in Ocala. Ritz is a transitional facility designed to help get veterans off the streets and back into society. With room for 47 males and three females, the facility currently has 11 men and two women. The newly remodeled rooms are filling fast as the VA in conjunction with the Volunteers of America process the paperwork and begin the challenge of changing lives. Eugene Wachsmuth received a Certificate of Appreciation for his grandson Xavier who wrote a special card that was read at the Memorial Day service. Also at the meeting, Norellen Pickell, the head of our Support our Soldiers (S.O.S.) project spoke briefly about her work with sending packages to our service personnel that are stationed overseas. (See Spotlight in this issue) At the meeting, President Bill Mahar presented Norellen with a check for $200 to help defray postage expenses and to assist in sending a touch of home to our forces in far away lands. Both Mr. Thomas and Ms. Pickell expressed a need for items for our service men and women. For the Ritz House, personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies such as paper towels; window cleaner; toilet paper and in general, those things that can keep both resident and room in good order. For our people overseas, Ms. Pickell suggested power bars; hard candy; beef jerky and all items that remind the troops of home. Starting next week, there will be boxes in the clubhouse for donations to both of these worthwhile out reach programs. If you have items please feel free to bring them by and put them into the boxes designated for these charities. In addition, if you would like to donate money for postage, make your check payable to the Cherrywood Veterans Club and designate SOS in the memo line. Just drop it by the office to Geri and know that you have made a difference. The Veterans Club appreciates all of the support that this wonderful community gives. Fathers Day4000 years ago in a quaint little place called Babylonia; there lived a boy named Elmuru. Probably seeking a raise in his allowance, one day Elmuru wrote a note to his father wishing him good health and a long life. Apparently the Dad didnt have much money to inherit. That is the first record of a Fathers Day in history. More recently, in 1909 a young lady in Spokane, Washington, by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd heard a Mothers Day sermon in her local church. Sonora had been raised by her father as her mother had died early in her childhood. She considered her father courageous; selfless Guests are welcome for just $7 per person.

and loving so she set out to get Fathers Day as a recognized holiday just as Mothers Day had been. Her efforts paid off and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June to be the first official Fathers Day in the United States. Presidential proclamations continued until 1972 when President Nixon established a permanent national observance on the third Sunday of June. Unfortunately, we live in a society today when the role of a father has been greatly diminished. More and more children are being born out of wedlock and have no father figure around and divorce is so prevalent that many children are raised with no dad in the immediate family circle. On Sunday, we take time to honor those men who are still courageous; loving; protective and selfless in their care of children. Society may say that dads are not necessary; not relevant or not important. For those who have fathered children or for those of us who have had a caring dad, we know better. If you are lucky enough to have a dad still alive, the red rose is a symbol of your love for him. If your father is deceased, the white rose recognizes your loss. Dont forget your dad whether he is alive or not this Sunday. Cherrywood wishes our each of our resident dads a very happy Fathers Day.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 our community. This week the spotlight shines on Norellen Pickell. Norellen was born in Detroit Michigan where she attended Holy Redeemer High School. She is a graduate of Spring Arbor College where she earned a degree in Human Services and Gerontology. Her first marriage was in July of 1967, at the same time as the Detroit Riots. She laughingly related how she had to get permission from the governor to be out after curfew. Norellen also talked about how they were stopped by a car full of uniformed police officers with drawn long guns on their way to their honeymoon. A pretty exciting honeymoon, I observed. No, not really, she laughed, not as exciting as my second one. During her marriage to Another smashing success for Cherrywood and the Social Committee took place on Saturday evening with the kickoff dinner for 100 Days of Summer. A record turnout of upwards of 250 people took part in the event enjoying a delicious chicken dinner followed by an evening of excellent entertainment. Our Social Committee led by Chairman Jay OHern did a magnificent job of getting the guests served. He was assisted by Joan and Dave Siegel; Marguerite Fiorenza; Peggy Konar; Bill Wetherby (Fred OHerns nephew who is visiting from Colorado); Monica Becotte; Claudette Cote; Nancy Archer; Bill Brotherhood; Bill Mahar and Fred OHern. The entire event was sponsored by Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management which meant the food was free and so was the entertainment. The Social Committee would like to send out a special thanks to Geri, Jim, Justin, and Fred from the CWPM staff for their support, especially Justin for almost single handedly handling the clean up. Rich Becotte handled the entertainment much to the pleasure of all who danced the night away to his vast array of songs. Rich is always a delight at our functions. In the drawing for the night that was designed to get everyones email addresses, Holly Bragdon was the winner. In addition, there were three 50/50 prizes awarded. There were some very minor missteps for the evening. For example, the serving line ran short of potato salad and committee members scattered to find more to bring in. With only a minor delay, the people all were served and for the most part took the short interruption with a good natured smile. All in all, it was a great evening and everyone had fun. The Social Committee should be justifiably proud of their work and this terrific event. Veteran honoredCherrywood resident Larry Giles, a former officer of the Cherrywood Veterans Club, received a rare honor this past Memorial Day in his home town of McKeesport and White Oak, Pennsylvania. Larry, along with four of his brothers, all veterans, received official proclamations from the Mayor for their service to this country. Larrys brothers; Ed, age 88; Jim, age 87; and Jerry, 85; all served in World War II. Larry 78 and his brother Bill, 76, served during the Korean War. Another brother, Bud, a U.S. Army veteran with the 82nd Airborne Division, passed away in 2007. There is no doubt that the Giles family has given a great deal to this country. After a ride in a convertible in the parades of both towns, the mayor issued each one of the brothers a proclamation. Brother Bud received a proclamation that was presented to his son, Michael. A Marine veteran, Larry served during the Korean War era. As one would imagine, all of the brothers are extremely close and have been all their lives. It was a rare and well deserved honor for them to be the headliners in the Memorial Day parade of their home town. Veterans Appreciation DayOn July 7, the Veterans Club will be putting on its Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Lees Chicken w/biscuit; green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy, iced tea and lemonade will be served free to all veterans and their significant others.

Registration for vacation Bible school is available Nestled in the heart of the University of Florida on West University Avenue is a treasure trove of Judaica. The Isser and Rae Price library of Judaica is a valuable resource for those engaged in serious Jewish studies as well as the average person who has an interest in Jewish life and theology. The library is headed by a remarkable young woman and British import, Dr. Rebecca Jefferson. Her background includes studying Hebrew on two kibbutzim in Israel, solid academics in Hebrew and Jewish studies at Cambridge University, as well as a keen interest in genizahs (storage rooms for old Judaica) and old manuscripts. The reputation of the library brought her to the States where she says she is freer to pursue her Jewish spirituality. When Rebecca offered to give me a guided tour, I certainly could not pass up this opportunity. Dr. Jeffersons enthusiasm for her work and dedication to the library was evident all during my tour. In her charming British accent, she related to me the highlights and history of the library as well as allowing for some hands-on time. The library was founded in the late s as a resource for the Jewish Studies program started at UF in 1973. Jack and Samuel Price of Jacksonville who gave the money to support the creation of the library, made the first and largest endowment to libraries at the time. It was named in honor of their parents, Isser and Rae Price. In 1981, a little over 30 years ago, the library was dedicated as the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica. Rebecca liked to tell me that the core of the collection and ensuring collections were based on the 3-Ms, that is the last initial of the three major players in the library acquisitions. Rabbi Leonard Mishkin is the first m of the trinity. The Chicago rabbi had the largest collection, some 40,000 volumes at the time, in the 1970s. Authenticated by scholar and Harvard Bibliographer, Charles Berlin, who described it as superb, the collection was purchased with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the first such award to be granted to a library and was later given a matching grant from the State of Florida recognizing the cultural and historical value of the collection. Included in Rabbi Mishkins collection were festschriften (papers put together to honor other scholars) and periodicals, which give us a glimpse into the Jewish world at the turn of the last century. The festschriften contained work not widely distributed and related famous people, places and events. The second m in the librarys history is Shlomo Marenof, a scholar in Hebrew literature from Brandeis University whose collection numbered 10,000 volumes. The final m in the librarys history comes from Morgensterns Book Store in the lower East Side of New York City. Under the aegis of its first librarian, Robert Singerman, many volumes were purchased in Yiddish augmenting the librarys collection. Today, the Price Library boasted some 95,000 volumes, is considered one of the top 20 academic libraries in the world and in the top 10 for Judaic collections. There are strong rabbinical as well as strong holocaust collections. In addition there are many volumes that predate the creation of the State of Israel, when the Jewish State was Palestine under the British Mandate. There are also books on all movements in Judaism as well as texts dealing with the Jews of various American cities and countries in the world. Much genealogy can be gleaned from the vast records and lists of Jewish residents here and abroad. There were also special sections for childrens selections and I tried to find some of my old Hebrew school textbooks. Of special note are the Yiskor memorial books. These volumes, written with much pathos and reminiscence, describe the vanished communities obliterated by the Nazis during World War II. In many cases, they are the only records left of what were once flourishing Jewish communities in Europe. The library has 800 of these books, first produced in Argentina in Yiddish, then in Israel in Hebrew and in recent years, in English translation. Toward the end of my tour, I was treated to some special tomes that Dr. Jefferson had in her office. Many were haggadot, the special ritual books for Passover. One, curiously, was in Marathi script, from Bombay, India, published in 1901 for the Jews of India. Rebecca tells me that when read, the words were Hebrew! Another haggadah published in 1918 in the early days of the Soviet Union was different from the ones we use today in the fact that it appeared to be more detailed. Of course this was during a time when traditional Judaism was the norm. I was also shown a copy of LIdea Sionista, a rare Zionist journal from the early days of the Zionist movement. It was published in Italy during 190104 and Price is the only library to have a copy. Before I left, I finally had a chance to view and touch the oldest volume in the whole library, a volume from the late 1400s, of responsa, that is, letters or correspondence from rabbis to other rabbis on topics of Jewish law. The writers of the day could never imagine that the lands discovered by Columbus would one day house Judaica and that these lands would become a haven for Jews. Rae Price said in 1981, The library is something for everyone to use. It has long been needed and it will live on and on. May her words be prophetic. Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 15, 2012 This Sunday is Fathers Day, a day that doesnt get near as much attention as Mothers Day, but one that honors some of the unsung heroes in our nation. Were always hearing bad stories about fathers; just this past week there was a mega church minister who allegedly beat his daughter, for example. But for every father who has gotten into trouble, there are thousands, no, millions, who have done the right things all their lives and been there for their children. This week its time to honor them, and those who are fortunate enough to have their dads still around should do so. The family gatherings, the flowers, etc., arent the same for the third Sunday in June as they are for the second Sunday in May, but its just as important to honor dad as much as you honor mom. At some point, most of us lose our fathers and all we are left with are memories. My dad died in 2004 after a seven-year battle with dementia, which manifested itself, to the rest of the family, anyway, after my mom died in 1997. It can be a tough road. I am fortunate to have a wife who was a fabulous caregiver. Dad went into an assisted living facility shortly after mom died, and my wife volunteered there, visited regularly and even ran their bingo program. I tried to visit often, but many times I was out of town working and couldnt take part in some of the activities. Dad was a World War II veteran of the China-India-Burma Theater. He was born and raised in East St. Louis, Illinois, and I remember spending a couple of weeks out there every August (it was brutally hot) as we visited on our annual vacation. One year I flew out two weeks early, and got to stay for a month with my grandparents. Yes, you read it right. In those days I even flew sometimes. East St. Louis, I understand, has deteriorated over the years, but then it was a great place to visit. My dad took me all over the Northeast, visiting historical sites. He was a member of a group called the Catholic War Veterans, and once was the keynote speaker on Memorial Day (we always had a parade). I still miss him, and sometimes wish I could just say hello. For those of you who still have that chance, dont let it pass by. And to all the dads out there, happy Fathers Day.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Basically, in this country, we have a two-party system. Yes, there are other parties and there is the ability to be a write-in candidate, but usually its Republicans vs. Demcorats. With the closing of qualifying last week, the local political races are set, and its evident from the lists put out by the supervisor of elections that Floridas primary system needs some work. There are several races where there are no Democrats, meaning that the Republican candidates who survive the primary should be automatically elected. But state law says that if someone else qualifies for the election in November, there must be an election then, even if one major party or another is not represented. By doing this, the state disenfranchises voters of the party that is not represented on the ballot. This year, for example, there is only one Democrat running for County Commission Jessica Cookie Hadley in District 5. So having the election spread out to November is perfectly legitimate. However, the other two commission races will carry over to November, because there are write-in candidates in both races. Facing the facts, the winner of the August primary for Republicans, in which Democrats cant vote, will probably be the winner in November in Districts 1 and 3. What this means is that Democrats will have little say in who represents those districts. True, they could vote for the write-in candidate, but thats not likely. The change should be simple. The primary should be open to both parties when there is a write-in candidate, much as it already is open where there are candidates of only one party. Then the entire thing could be decided by everyone in the primary, without the expense, or farce, of taking the race to the general election. Better still, the state could change write-in candidates to what that type of candidate originally was someone whose name was written in without any previous qualifying. Many agree that the write-in system is a ploy to disenfranchise one party or another. Its time to end that possibility. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY State primary system needs an overhaul Its time for us to honor our dads Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Politics, A little knowledge is dangerousI heard directly, and read many articles in the newspapers and saw on TV, much regarding the political atmosphere at this time. Apparently the party trying to get in the White House is the most ill-informed. I listened last night to a speech Mitt Romney made and he said he had a plan to get the economy back up and running again. And theres that word again, again. All innuendo and no substance. Theres one thing youve got to give Obama credit for and thats for surrounding himself with probably three of the most intelligent people in the country, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta. Now, who does Romney have? Oh yes, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Erik Cantor. Now theres the Three Witches of Eastwick. In fact the three most dangerous people in the United States. Someone told me George W. Bush was responsible for the Second Depression, and do you know thats right. The depression of 2008 also by a Republican, when many of us lost hundreds of thousands of dollars and Bush left to Obama to salvage. And hes doing that. Those of you retired from the auto industry should be kissing Obamas shoes for saving the auto industry, just as hes saved the banking industry. How quick we forget. Jobs are not a problem, if you want to work and a lot of people on welfare dont want to work. Why should they, when they already have a golden cow? There is so much hatred out there for Obama and I wonder why. The Republicans keep bringing up the birth card but they are the jokers. When you have no facts to back you up, make up lies. I think the Native Americans call that, Speaking with Forked Tongue. It still holds true. Bill Ford OcalaMessage to graduatesCongratulations for the good advice to the graduates in your commentary section of the Citizen. I have always worked with young people from my days in the NYPD to the years I worked with the Juvenile Justice Bureau here in Florida. Lord knows, young people need plenty of positive influence during these difficult social times. As an Adjunct professor in Sociology at CF, I am very much aware of the need for positive influence on the young students. I always tell them not to take anything for granted and question things they do not understand. It is the same advice I give my son Joseph who also attends CF.

her first husband she had two children; Robert and Rene. At 11 years of age, Robert, or Bobby as Norellen calls him, was diagnosed with diabetes. She told me he cried because he wouldnt be able to join the military. After her children were off to school she worked in such diverse fields as real estate sales and the Early Learning Center toy store. When her husband decided to move to Arizona, she went first and got a job selling real estate. When he joined her, the situation in their relationship did not improve. After 20 years, she divorced him and set off on her own. For several years she owned and operated a craft and hobby shop in Alpena, Michigan. After completing her education, she took a job with the City of Lincoln Park as their Director of Senior Programs. In 1998 she retired and moved to Florida. Her son Bobby didnt let a little thing like diabetes get in his way. At age 16 he volunteered and became a camp counselor for diabetic children in Marquette, Michigan. Soon he had his sister Rene working with him during the summer months in camps not only in Marquette but also just north of Lapeer, Michigan. Bobby received a degree from Michigan State University and worked his way up to Program Director of the camps. At halftime during the Michigan/Michigan State game in 2001 he proposed to his girl friend. He wore a hat saying, I asked, and she wore a hat that read, I accepted. In November of 2001, theFriday, June 15, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 devastating attack on our country had a profound effect on Bobby and his whole family. He called his Mom to tell her that he had just volunteered to become a fire fighter to which Norellen responded, Good for you. I just volunteered to work with the Red Cross. Tragically, on Dec. 26, 2002, Bobby was killed in a hunting accident while visiting his father in Wisconsin. This young man who had been described by friends and family as the life of the party and a great friend to everyone was now suddenly gone. Not one to be kept down, Norellen came to a realization that she had several nephews and nieces in military service. After 9/11 Bobby had written to each of them, his cousins, to express his deep affection and support. In Bobbys honor and memory, she began the program, Support our Soldiers. S.O.S. is set up to provide necessities and treats to our soldiers serving in combat areas in the Middle East and Afghanistan. S.O.S. and Norellen receive support from many different individuals and groups, among them the Cherrywood Veterans Club. The effectiveness of her work is displayed in the many large scrapbooks she has that are filled with letters and thank you notes from our troops. She also has three flags that have flown over base camps in those far off places, given to her by units that received her help. Norellen is happily married to her husband Ed. Back in 1994 they met at a singles club dinner and two years later, began their lives together. In recent years, Norellen has suffered through some serious injuries and illnesses. Hip replacements, broken ankles and COPD are just a few of the many hardships she has had to endure. Remarkably, Norellen has kept her sense of humor and gives a huge amount of credit to Ed, for his doting care and unflinching love. In spite of her limited mobility, she is active in Blessed Trinity Church; S.O.S. and she is the founder of Compassionate Friends here in Central Florida. Compassionate Friends is a support group for those parents who have lost children from what ever cause. CF offers counseling, care and resources to help parents cope with the horrific loss of a child. Norellen and her family are special people. Her daughter Rene is a neonatal nurse in Colonial Heights, Virginia. She also shares a deep love for Eds children; Joseph and Rosie Gray, who live in Ireland. Ed and Norellen have three grandchildren. We in the Cherrywood community are very fortunate to have courageous; caring; committed neighbors such as the Pickells. They are the type of people who dont ask for recognition but quietly go about making the world a better place just by being in it. Thank you Norellen and Ed for all you do and all youve done.From Your ReporterIn last weeks edition of the Spotlight, the picture of Howard and Arlene Mayberry was omitted because of a computer glitch.

Only the number of shots that it took to get to the green were counted. Thank goodness we did not have to worry about three putt holes that day. Of course for some of us it meant many shots that were just short of the green or just over the back, taking another stroke to actually get on the green. Golf can be such a mind game! The winners were: First Flight 1st place, JT Lemasters, 2nd place, Dianna Love; Second Flight 1st place, Janet Tully, 2nd place, Judy Klein, 3rd place, Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st placePatty Dougherty, 2nd place, Gayle Feeman.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Fathers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers.Tripped upA mother was taking her young son for a ride in the car. On their way home, he asked, Mother, where are all the infernal idiots? Why, Son, she replied, they only happen to be on the highway when your father is driving.Quadrupled problemsWith the advent of fertility drugs more and more quadruplets are born annually in any major city. This has resulted in a common occurrence that when one starts howling, the others will join in until you have a cacophony of screams. Many an exasperated and fatigued father now awakens his wife in the middle of the night complaining, Four crying out loud.Big bad dadJust recently during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight? The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. I cant dear, she said. I have to sleep in Daddys room. A long silence was broken at last by his shaking little voice, The big sissy.Pop cornFathers Day always worried James. He was afraid that he would get a gift he couldnt afford. A man wanted to have breakfast in bed on Fathers Day. His kids put a cot in the kitchen. Its hard for a five-footsix father to explain to his six-foot-one son why junk food is bad for you. Dad can always count on getting one thing on Fathers Day all the bills from Mothers Day. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. Mother fish to school of baby fish, Your father, may he rest in peace, was considered quite a catch.By the numbersFather was completely lost in the kitchen and never ate unless someone prepared a meal for him. When Mother was ill, however, he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items. Dad returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had one bag of sugar, two-dozen eggs, three hams, four boxes of detergent, five boxes of crackers, six eggplants, and seven green peppers.All wetBefore performing a baptism, the minister said to the young father, Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it? I think so, the man replied. My wife has made appetizers and we have a caterer coming to provide plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests. I dont mean that, the priest responded. I mean, are you prepared spiritually? Oh, sure, came the reply. Ive got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey.Cant please em allMost of Rons his friends were already married while he just bounced from one relationship to the next. A friend asked him, Whats the matter, are you looking for the perfect woman? Cant you find anyone who suits you? Ron replied. I meet a lot of nice girls, but as soon as I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesnt like them. So I keep on looking. Listen, his friend suggested, Why dont you find a girl whos just like your Mother? Weeks passed before Ron and his friend met again. So Ron. Did you find the perfect girl yet? Ron answered, Yes I found one just like Mom. My mother loved her, they became great friends. Excellent! So are you and this girl engaged yet? Im afraid not, Ron replied, My Father cant stand her!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. This weekend, time to enjoy some humor about fathers PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Celebrating another Fathers Day without my father I cannot help thinking how much has changed since he died. If he were to return today, he would find things quite different. In all reality, this is not my fathers world anymore. I might just as well say it. This is not my fathers country anymore, either. The country my father loves seems to have all but disappeared. During his time, a deep-seated patriotic pride permeated throughout our country. We were proud of what our forefathers had accomplished and we were willing to die to preserve that heritage. Today, it seems the past is simply the past and has no bearing whatsoever on the present. This may be why history books are being rewritten today. This, however, is a fallacy encouraged by those who do not know the right hand from their left hand. In our country today, you are either far right or far left and nothing in between. Whatever happened to people with common sense? Perhaps that ancient anonymous philosopher was right when he said the problem with common sense was that it really was not that common anymore. Perhaps the demise of the common man explains this phenomenon. Or it could be that most people today have been educated beyond their common sensibilities. There was a time in my fathers country when people were proud of what they did. A few tried to get money without working for it. In my fathers country, there was a great deal of pride in working for what you had and not depending upon somebody with a handout. In my fathers country, there was a deep sense of accomplishment in earning what you had by the sweat of your brow. The only people sweating these days are politicians up for re-election. In my fathers country, there was no such thing as arbitrary handouts but plenty of hands out. It was considered our patriotic duty to help our neighbor when they were in trouble. Nobody looked to Uncle Sam to solve his or her problems. It was a community affair not a government mandate. In fact, if the truth were known, and evidently it is not, they stayed as far away from Uncle Sam as possible only communicating with him once a year on April 15. In those days, they saluted the flag, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were right proud to do so. Not one of them could imagine anybody ashamed of doing that in public. Today a lot is being said about the separation of church and state. My father would not understand the way some people are interpreting it. According to what is going on today they are trying to keep the church out of the state but make good and sure, the state runs the church. Isnt that why we had a revolution in the first place? In my fathers country, there was a separation between government control and people pursuing life, liberty and happiness. Oh, for those good old days. Also, in my fathers country baseball was a national sport not a business. I am not quite sure when it became a business but my father never thought it was. He often took me to the ball field on a Saturday afternoon to have fun, enjoy the game and eat the worlds most delicious hotdog. At least he said they were the worlds most delicious hotdogs. Our purpose in going was just to have fun. He did his share of making fun and harassing the other teams fans but it never crossed his mind to physically beat one of them nearly to death. If I remember correctly, wedgies were the order of the day. When our team won we celebrated and high-fived everybody around us. When our team lost, we determined with everything within us to slaughter them the next week on the field. When we said slaughter, we were talking figuratively. Credit was something my fathers generation frowned on. As a young person, I had in my mind to buy a bicycle. I took my father to the store to look at that prized bike. Well, my father stammered, as he looked the bike over. How much money youve got saved for this bike? I knew the lecture that was to follow. If you could not afford to buy something, you could not afford to have it. How many times have I heard that? Perhaps if my father could come back for a day we could send him to Washington, D.C. and explain to them this whole idea that if you cannot afford something you cannot afford something. It seemed to make sense to me and I was only a young person at the time. I guess when you get older you lose a lot of that good common sense. Then if elected and go to Washington, D.C., you leave all of that good common sense back home with your constituency who wonder what they elected you for. The verse of Scripture that was very important to my father was, And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it (Psalms 90:17 KJV). It may not be the same country my father loved, but I can still operate on the same principles that made him a patriotic father, and pray, Establish thou the work of our hands.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE INNOCENT By David Baldacci There are many remarkable episodes in this tour de force of storytelling, starting with Will Robie, a government hit man who rids the nation of its most formidable enemies. A true professional, Robie never questions his assignments. Yet on this one occasion he disobeys orders at his peril. Poised with gun cocked, he looks down on a young sleeping mother, a small child asleep by her side, a baby in a carrier nearby. Something strikes him as terribly wrong with the assignment. As he hesitates, shots are fired through the bedroom window, killing both mother and child with one bullet. Then Robie is fired upon. Thereafter, in a plot so complex its almost byzantine, Robie is on the move, dodging bullets from his former employers and accompanied by a precocious teenage girl whose parents were mysteriously murdered and who finds herself in danger. Julie Getty escaped abusive foster parents and ran home only to find her parents being held at gunpoint and her mother screaming for the girl to run. The last thing she heard her mother tell her captives was that Julie didnt know anything. To stay alive and protect Julie, Robie has to be on constant alert. But as he tells us, professional assassins are unique in this respect: When you were on a mission you looked for things that other people would never focus on. Like entry and exit points. Always have at least two of each. Gunsight angles, positions from which others can strike back at you. Sizing up opponents without seeming to do so. Trying to ferret out intent by reading body cues alone. The pacing here is flawless, the prose punchy, the turns twisty, and the ending climatic if just a tad predictable. This is a thriller sure to appeal to a Hollywood producer and sure to bring out droves of stage mothers eying the role of Julie Getty. A fine nail-biting read. Tale of a government hit man BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comDiana Morgan, who brought The New Pretenders, with its cast of 25 and a 12 piece orchestra, to the OTOW stage nine years ago, is coming out of retirement. Diana will co-produce and direct, in conjunction with assistant director Larry Wilver, the 2013 edition of TNP .The Lions ClubIn last weeks coverage of the Memorial Day observation sponsored by the OTOW Lions Club, it was stated that Kenneth Colen, assisted by Lion President John Johnson, placed the Memorial Wreath before the audience. The statement should have read that Robert Colen and Lion Steve Snowman placed the wreath. Please accept my apology for this error. OTOW HAPPENINGS saying, I have a day job thats very serious, second in command. He says he spends extra hours to get out and talk to people. He added, I agree that experience matters, but youre not electing a deputy sheriff. Youre electing a sheriff, somebody to be at the top of the agency. Ive been a chief of staff since 2005. Sheriff Dean chose to have three chiefs of staff; I wouldnt do it the same way. I would do things differently, but I would give Sheriff Dean credit for a lot of the good things that he brought from a business and efficiency point of view. Talking about the turnover issue, Kuhn said, We actually track turnover. We measure less than 1 percent turnover at the agency; for the southeast region of the United States, the average is 3 percent. He also talked about the sheriffs budget, which is $68 million. Four years ago it was $77 million. You dont develop a budget in a vacuum. The sheriff doesnt set his own budget. He has to work hand in hand with the county commissioners in setting that budget. We are a county thats been hit harder than some counties around us the sheriffs budget is tied to property values. Speaking about manpower, Kuhn said, Even though we have fewer deputies than some of the surrounding counties, our crime rate is half the statewide average. Our crime clearance rate is twice the statewide average. We do not have a broken agency. We have an agency that has been applauded by the governors office, we have an agency that is among the very best not just in Florida but in the United States. I would stack our people up against anyone. Kuhn addressed his background, being born and raised in Marion County. He graduated from the University of Florida law school, and came out as a prosecutor. He became general counsel in 2005. I went back and became a sworn law enforcement officer. I crawled on my belly, I shot, I ended up top shot in the class, but I also graduated top of my class in recruit school. I understand what it takes to be the sheriff. For three budget cycles Ive been working with the County Commission, trying to develop a budget that meets the needs of the citizens in the community but at the same time balances the need for public safety. He said that he doesnt disagree with Blair that over time were going to have to eliminate officials and put boots on the ground. He said that two captains retired recently. One was on the road and we created two deputies to replace the captain, and one was in the jail. That posiSHERIFFCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 tion was eliminated and we created two line level employees. He closed by saying that You just dont want a good cop, you want someone who understands that weve got a lot of good cops. Im proud of what they do, but executive leadership and what it takes to run the agency, I believe I have that skill set. The primary election is Aug. 14. Only Republicans may vote in the GOP race for sheriff, since there are opponents for the general election. mary in August. For school superintendent, Jackie Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner will run in the Republican primary, with the winner to face Democrat Diana Greene in November. Only Republicans may vote in August. In County Commission District 1, Mike Amsden, the incumbent, is being challenged by David R. Moore in the Republican primary. The winner faces write-in James Bailey in November. For District 3, incumbent Stan McClain is challenged by Jeffrey Gold in the Republican primary, with Patricia Reed and Robert Brown as write-ins on the ballot in November. Reed had originally been listed as a Democrat. In District 5, four Republicans, including Earl Arnett, Pat Gabriel, Francine Johannesen and Butch Verrando will be on the ballot Aug. 14, with the winner to face Democrat Jessica Hadley in November. In all three County Commission races, only Republicans may vote in August. School Board races are different, since by law the competition is non-partisan. Everyone in the county may vote in the board races. In District 1 its Woody Clymer vs. Nancy Stacy; in District 2 its Carol Ely vs. Robert Dobkowski. Both races will be decided Aug. 14. For supervisor of elections, Barbara Ruse and Wesley B. Wilcox, both Republicans, will square off in the GOP primary, with the winner to face Judge Cochran in November. Only Republicans can vote in August for supervisor of elections.

The winning candidates in the Aug. 14 primary election will advance to the general election on Nov. 6. Sheriff hopefuls stress qualifications BY JIM CLARK EditorIf any people had any doubt that the race for Marion County Sheriff hadnt gotten fully under way, a visit to the State Road 200 Coalition meeting Monday might have changed their minds. Republican candidates Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn each presented a different assessment of qualifications needed to be the countys top law enforcement officer. Blair, speaking first, retired after 35 years with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, saying he was the longest serving deputy in the history of the organization. He said that he worked his way through the ranks, eventually becoming major of special investigations. He held up a color-coded chart that showed that only two counties in Florida have a sheriff who did not come up through the ranks. One is Union County, the other is Marion County. Sheriff Ed Dean was an attorney when originally appointed to the position. Blair noted that it takes five years of experience for a deputy to become a detective, five years to be a sergeant, 10 years to be a lieutenant, but then we look at the sheriff. I can tell you that I am the only candidate in this race with actual law enforcement experience. Blair said the Sheriffs Office is top heavy. My biggest concern is that the organization is a bureaucratic empire. He said the state requires one supervisor for every six deputies, but in Marion County its one for every 3.5 deputies. Our deputies are being supervised twice as much. Blair added, We rank in the bottom 10 for deputy sheriffs serving you every day. We rank in the bottom 10 for starting salaries for deputy sheriffs. We are losing good qualified deputy sheriffs. He added that 44 left the agency since the first of the year, four by retirement, and the others just left. We must put more boots on the ground. He said that the concern used to be Miami moving north, now its Orlando moving north. Without those boots on the ground, were Chris Blair Dan Kuhn West Port graduation West Port High School graduate Mariah Fernandez adjusts her cap prior to graduation Friday morning. West Port High School graduates Kevin Jones and Cassie Mrod share a joke before graduation ceremonies began Friday morning. The phone was later collected by school officials they also took car keys and returned to graduates after the ceremony. Graduation was originally scheduled for Thursday night, but the days rain forced the postponement of the outdoor ceremony on the schools football field. That failed to dampen the ethusiasm of those who received their diplomas. going to be in serious trouble. He criticized Kuhn, who holds the position of undersheriff, for 17 promotions when he announced his candidacy. We are going up, we should be going down. Under my command we will have one chief of staff, not three. We will not have an undersheriff. We must move that money down. We must reallocate our manpower and resources. He concluded, It is the peoples choice, but make sure that we put experience where it needs to be. Kuhn then addressed the crowd, PLEASESEESHERIFF, PAGE4 BY JIM CLARK EditorTwo commercial establishments along the State Road 200 corridor were burglarized last week. On the morning of June 7, workers at Divine Providence in the 8800 block discovered that the store had been illegally entered through side doors and money and a cell phone were taken. The day before, workers arriving at the Oasis Restaurant in the 7600 block discovered that the establishment had been entered and cash taken. The entry was from the front and was made by breaking glass. Two commercial establishments along 200 corridor burglarized BY JIM CLARK EditorSome of the political races are over before they start. Qualifying ended Friday for the upcoming local election cycle, and several candidates will face no opposition when voters go to the polls in August and November. County Commissioner Charlie Stone decided this year to leave the county governing body and make a run for state representative in District 22. Its already been successful as he faces no opposition and will go to Tallahassee next January. In county races, Tax Collector George Albright, Clerk of the Circuit Court David Ellspermann and Property Appraiser Villie Smith, all Republicans, drew no opposition and are automatically re-elected. In addition to Stone, Dennis Baxley and Marlene H. OToole have been re-elected to the Florida House, and Charlie Dean has been re-elected to the Florida Senate. In other county races, Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn will square off in the Republic primary Aug. 14 for sheriff, with the winner facing Bernie DeCastro, Constitution Party, and Judson Cauthen Spence Jr., write-in, in the general election.

Marion County Sheriffs Office just accepted the first of 36 police vehicles, scheduled to arrive in the next two months. The new vehicles will replace aging patrol vehicles. The American-built Fords are the latest in law enforcement auto technology. These new vehicles were selected for handling and performance. The Police Interceptor sedan allwheel drive has the 3.5L V6 eco-boost engine. It was described as being a game-changer by one of the deputies. Although this engine boasts 365 horsepower, it is estimated to provide at least a 20 percent increase in our current fuel mileage, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The increased fuel mileage could result in a savings of an estimated $500,000+ per year once the entire fleet has been upgraded, Cochran added. Also, the vehicles will have back-up sensors that will warn officers when they are near anything when the vehicle is in reverse. In FY 2009-2010, the Board of County Commission earmarked $442,000 for the purchase of replacement Patrol vehicles, per the Sheriffs request. Last FY 2010-2011, the Sheriff asked and received approval that all returned funds in the amount of Sheriffs Office receiving new vehicles $2,154,107 in the MSTU budget and $702,515 in county-wide funds also be earmarked for replacement vehicles. Using the $442,000 from FY 20092010, the agency was able to order 14 Police Interceptor sedans and 2 Ford Police Interceptor SUV models. Of those vehicles ordered, 1 sedan and 1 SUV will be outfitted for use by the K-9 Unit and will allow them to test which one will be a best fit for the unit. The Sheriffs Office is receiving vehicles on a regular schedule, about 4-5 Police Interceptors each week. So, there should be between 60-70 new vehicles in the next few months. Since these are brand new vehicle models, they are custom building everything we are adding to the vehicles. The Sheriffs Office is installing radios and computers, and will have striping/decals done. The Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team arrested Travis S.

The winning candidates in the Aug. 14 primary election will advance to the general election on Nov. 6. Sheriff hopefuls stress qualifications BY JIM CLARK Editor If any people had any doubt that the race for Marion County Sheriff hadnt gotten fully under way, a visit to the State Road 200 Coalition meeting Monday might have changed their minds. Republican candidates Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn each presented a different assessment of qualifications needed to be the countys top law enforcement officer. Blair, speaking first, retired after 35 years with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, saying he was the longest serving deputy in the history of the organization. He said that he worked his way through the ranks, eventually becoming major of special investigations. He held up a color-coded chart that showed that only two counties in Florida have a sheriff who did not come up through the ranks. One is Union County, the other is Marion County. Sheriff Ed Dean was an attorney when originally appointed to the position. Blair noted that it takes five years of experience for a deputy to become a detective, five years to be a sergeant, 10 years to be a lieutenant, but then we look at the sheriff. I can tell you that I am the only candidate in this race with actual law enforcement experience. Blair said the Sheriffs Office is top heavy. My biggest concern is that the organization is a bureaucratic empire. He said the state requires one supervisor for every six deputies, but in Marion County its one for every 3.5 deputies. Our deputies are being supervised twice as much. Blair added, We rank in the bottom 10 for deputy sheriffs serving you every day. We rank in the bottom 10 for starting salaries for deputy sheriffs. We are losing good qualified deputy sheriffs. He added that 44 left the agency since the first of the year, four by retirement, and the others just left. We must put more boots on the ground. He said that the concern used to be Miami moving north, now its Orlando moving north. Without those boots on the ground, were Chris BlairDan Kuhn West Port graduation West Port High School graduate Mariah Fernandez adjusts her cap prior to graduation Friday morning. West Port High School graduates Kevin Jones and Cassie Mrod share a joke before graduation ceremonies began Friday morning. The phone was later collected by school officials they also took car keys and returned to graduates after the ceremony. Graduation was originally scheduled for Thursday night, but the days rain forced the postponement of the outdoor ceremony on the schools football field. That failed to dampen the ethusiasm of those who received their diplomas. going to be in serious trouble. He criticized Kuhn, who holds the position of undersheriff, for 17 promotions when he announced his candidacy. We are going up, we should be going down. Under my command we will have one chief of staff, not three. We will not have an undersheriff. We must move that money down. We must reallocate our manpower and resources. He concluded, It is the peoples choice, but make sure that we put experience where it needs to be. Kuhn then addressed the crowd, PLEASESEESHERIFF PAGE4 BY JIM CLARK Editor Two commercial establishments along the State Road 200 corridor were burglarized last week. On the morning of June 7, workers at Divine Providence in the 8800 block discovered that the store had been illegally entered through side doors and money and a cell phone were taken. The day before, workers arriving at the Oasis Restaurant in the 7600 block discovered that the establishment had been entered and cash taken. The entry was from the front and was made by breaking glass. Two commercial establishments along 200 corridor burglarized BY JIM CLARK Editor Some of the political races are over before they start. Qualifying ended Friday for the upcoming local election cycle, and several candidates will face no opposition when voters go to the polls in August and November. County Commissioner Charlie Stone decided this year to leave the county governing body and make a run for state representative in District 22. Its already been successful as he faces no opposition and will go to Tallahassee next January. In county races, Tax Collector George Albright, Clerk of the Circuit Court David Ellspermann and Property Appraiser Villie Smith, all Republicans, drew no opposition and are automatically re-elected. In addition to Stone, Dennis Baxley and Marlene H. OToole have been re-elected to the Florida House, and Charlie Dean has been re-elected to the Florida Senate. In other county races, Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn will square off in the Republic primary Aug. 14 for sheriff, with the winner facing Bernie DeCastro, Constitution Party, and Judson Cauthen Spence Jr., write-in, in the general election. Only Republicans may vote in the priStone elected state rep without foe for SW area Stone PLEASESEECANDIDATES PAGE4 Marions Most Wanted Douglas Aldridge 43, felony violation of probation fraud-credit card, grand theft less than $5,000, possession of hydrocodone. Kathryn Chase 45, felony violation of probation burglary of a dwelling. Marcus McCloud 43, felony bench warrant, failure to appear status conference driving while license revoked as habitual offender. Marvin McHellion 26, felony violation of probation possession of cocaine. Maronda Reed 22, violation of probation warrant for retail theft. Clinton Yancey 22, felony bench warrant, failure to appear status conference possession of cocaine. Marion County Sheriffs Office just accepted the first of 36 police vehicles, scheduled to arrive in the next two months. The new vehicles will replace aging patrol vehicles. The American-built Fords are the latest in law enforcement auto technology. These new vehicles were selected for handling and performance. The Police Interceptor sedan allwheel drive has the 3.5L V6 eco-boost engine. It was described as being a game-changer by one of the deputies. Although this engine boasts 365 horsepower, it is estimated to provide at least a 20 percent increase in our current fuel mileage, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The increased fuel mileage could result in a savings of an estimated $500,000+ per year once the entire fleet has been upgraded, Cochran added. Also, the vehicles will have back-up sensors that will warn officers when they are near anything when the vehicle is in reverse. In FY 2009-2010, the Board of County Commission earmarked $442,000 for the purchase of replacement Patrol vehicles, per the Sheriffs request. Last FY 2010-2011, the Sheriff asked and received approval that all returned funds in the amount of Sheriffs Office receiving new vehicles $2,154,107 in the MSTU budget and $702,515 in county-wide funds also be earmarked for replacement vehicles. Using the $442,000 from FY 20092010, the agency was able to order 14 Police Interceptor sedans and 2 Ford Police Interceptor SUV models. Of those vehicles ordered, 1 sedan and 1 SUV will be outfitted for use by the K-9 Unit and will allow them to test which one will be a best fit for the unit. The Sheriffs Office is receiving vehicles on a regular schedule, about 4-5 Police Interceptors each week. So, there should be between 60-70 new vehicles in the next few months. Since these are brand new vehicle models, they are custom building everything we are adding to the vehicles. The Sheriffs Office is installing radios and computers, and will have striping/decals done. The Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team arrested Travis S. Rath of Ocala and the 25 year-old suspect will now face numerous charges. Rath was arrested at 5 p.m., Monday, June 11, along Southwest 27th Avenue, Ocala. While putting handcuffs on Rath, drug agents seized $39,520 in cash, 25 pounds of packaged marijuana that has a value of $57,000 and two assault rifles. Rath is charged with: Armed trafficking in marijuana Cultivation of marijuana Possession of a firearm during a felony Possession of paraphernalia 3 counts of sale and possession of marijuana If you know anything about Raths activities, call Crime Stoppers at 352-3687867.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE INNOCENT By David Baldacci There are many remarkable episodes in this tour de force of storytelling, starting with Will Robie, a government hit man who rids the nation of its most formidable enemies. A true professional, Robie never questions his assignments. Yet on this one occasion he disobeys orders at his peril. Poised with gun cocked, he looks down on a young sleeping mother, a small child asleep by her side, a baby in a carrier nearby. Something strikes him as terribly wrong with the assignment. As he hesitates, shots are fired through the bedroom window, killing both mother and child with one bullet. Then Robie is fired upon. Thereafter, in a plot so complex its almost byzantine, Robie is on the move, dodging bullets from his former employers and accompanied by a precocious teenage girl whose parents were mysteriously murdered and who finds herself in danger. Julie Getty escaped abusive foster parents and ran home only to find her parents being held at gunpoint and her mother screaming for the girl to run. The last thing she heard her mother tell her captives was that Julie didnt know anything. To stay alive and protect Julie, Robie has to be on constant alert. But as he tells us, professional assassins are unique in this respect: When you were on a mission you looked for things that other people would never focus on. Like entry and exit points. Always have at least two of each. Gunsight angles, positions from which others can strike back at you. Sizing up opponents without seeming to do so. Trying to ferret out intent by reading body cues alone. The pacing here is flawless, the prose punchy, the turns twisty, and the ending climatic if just a tad predictable. This is a thriller sure to appeal to a Hollywood producer and sure to bring out droves of stage mothers eying the role of Julie Getty. A fine nail-biting read. Tale of a government hit man B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com Diana Morgan, who brought The New Pretenders, with its cast of 25 and a 12 piece orchestra, to the OTOW stage nine years ago, is coming out of retirement. Diana will co-produce and direct, in conjunction with assistant director Larry Wilver, the 2013 edition of TNP The Lions Club In last weeks coverage of the Memorial Day observation sponsored by the OTOW Lions Club, it was stated that Kenneth Colen, assisted by Lion President John Johnson, placed the Memorial Wreath before the audience. The statement should have read that Robert Colen and Lion Steve Snowman placed the wreath. Please accept my apology for this error. OTOW HAPPENINGS saying, I have a day job thats very serious, second in command. He says he spends extra hours to get out and talk to people. He added, I agree that experience matters, but youre not electing a deputy sheriff. Youre electing a sheriff, somebody to be at the top of the agency. Ive been a chief of staff since 2005. Sheriff Dean chose to have three chiefs of staff; I wouldnt do it the same way. I would do things differently, but I would give Sheriff Dean credit for a lot of the good things that he brought from a business and efficiency point of view. Talking about the turnover issue, Kuhn said, We actually track turnover. We measure less than 1 percent turnover at the agency; for the southeast region of the United States, the average is 3 percent. He also talked about the sheriffs budget, which is $68 million. Four years ago it was $77 million. You dont develop a budget in a vacuum. The sheriff doesnt set his own budget. He has to work hand in hand with the county commissioners in setting that budget. We are a county thats been hit harder than some counties around us the sheriffs budget is tied to property values. Speaking about manpower, Kuhn said, Even though we have fewer deputies than some of the surrounding counties, our crime rate is half the statewide average. Our crime clearance rate is twice the statewide average. We do not have a broken agency. We have an agency that has been applauded by the governors office, we have an agency that is among the very best not just in Florida but in the United States. I would stack our people up against anyone. Kuhn addressed his background, being born and raised in Marion County. He graduated from the University of Florida law school, and came out as a prosecutor. He became general counsel in 2005. I went back and became a sworn law enforcement officer. I crawled on my belly, I shot, I ended up top shot in the class, but I also graduated top of my class in recruit school. I understand what it takes to be the sheriff. For three budget cycles Ive been working with the County Commission, trying to develop a budget that meets the needs of the citizens in the community but at the same time balances the need for public safety. He said that he doesnt disagree with Blair that over time were going to have to eliminate officials and put boots on the ground. He said that two captains retired recently. One was on the road and we created two deputies to replace the captain, and one was in the jail. That posiSHERIFF CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 tion was eliminated and we created two line level employees. He closed by saying that You just dont want a good cop, you want someone who understands that weve got a lot of good cops. Im proud of what they do, but executive leadership and what it takes to run the agency, I believe I have that skill set. The primary election is Aug. 14. Only Republicans may vote in the GOP race for sheriff, since there are opponents for the general election. mary in August. For school superintendent, Jackie Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner will run in the Republican primary, with the winner to face Democrat Diana Greene in November. Only Republicans may vote in August. In County Commission District 1, Mike Amsden, the incumbent, is being challenged by David R. Moore in the Republican primary. The winner faces write-in James Bailey in November. For District 3, incumbent Stan McClain is challenged by Jeffrey Gold in the Republican primary, with Patricia Reed and Robert Brown as write-ins on the ballot in November. Reed had originally been listed as a Democrat. In District 5, four Republicans, including Earl Arnett, Pat Gabriel, Francine Johannesen and Butch Verrando will be on the ballot Aug. 14, with the winner to face Democrat Jessica Hadley in November. In all three County Commission races, only Republicans may vote in August. School Board races are different, since by law the competition is non-partisan.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com F athers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers. Tripped upA mother was taking her young son for a ride in the car. On their way home, he asked, Mother, where are all the infernal idiots? Why, Son, she replied, they only happen to be on the highway when your father is driving. Quadrupled problemsWith the advent of fertility drugs more and more quadruplets are born annually in any major city. This has resulted in a common occurrence that when one starts howling, the others will join in until you have a cacophony of screams. Many an exasperated and fatigued father now awakens his wife in the middle of the night complaining, Four crying out loud. Big bad dad Just recently during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight? The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. I cant dear, she said. I have to sleep in Daddys room. A long silence was broken at last by his shaking little voice, The big sissy.Pop cornFathers Day always worried James. He was afraid that he would get a gift he couldnt afford. A man wanted to have breakfast in bed on Fathers Day. His kids put a cot in the kitchen. Its hard for a five-footsix father to explain to his six-foot-one son why junk food is bad for you. Dad can always count on getting one thing on Fathers Day all the bills from Mothers Day. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. Mother fish to school of baby fish, Your father, may he rest in peace, was considered quite a catch. By the numbersFather was completely lost in the kitchen and never ate unless someone prepared a meal for him. When Mother was ill, however, he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items. Dad returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had one bag of sugar, two-dozen eggs, three hams, four boxes of detergent, five boxes of crackers, six eggplants, and seven green peppers. All wet Before performing a baptism, the minister said to the young father, Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it? I think so, the man replied. My wife has made appetizers and we have a caterer coming to provide plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests. I dont mean that, the priest responded. I mean, are you prepared spiritually? Oh, sure, came the reply. Ive got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey.Cant please em all Most of Rons his friends were already married while he just bounced from one relationship to the next. A friend asked him, Whats the matter, are you looking for the perfect woman? Cant you find anyone who suits you? Ron replied. I meet a lot of nice girls, but as soon as I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesnt like them. So I keep on looking. Listen, his friend suggested, Why dont you find a girl whos just like your Mother? Weeks passed before Ron and his friend met again. So Ron. Did you find the perfect girl yet? Ron answered, Yes I found one just like Mom. My mother loved her, they became great friends. Excellent! So are you and this girl engaged yet? Im afraid not, Ron replied, My Father cant stand her! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. This weekend, time to enjoy some humor about fathers P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank C elebrating another Fathers Day without my father I cannot help thinking how much has changed since he died. If he were to return today, he would find things quite different. In all reality, this is not my fathers world anymore. I might just as well say it. This is not my fathers country anymore, either. The country my father loves seems to have all but disappeared. During his time, a deep-seated patriotic pride permeated throughout our country. We were proud of what our forefathers had accomplished and we were willing to die to preserve that heritage. Today, it seems the past is simply the past and has no bearing whatsoever on the present. This may be why history books are being rewritten today. This, however, is a fallacy encouraged by those who do not know the right hand from their left hand. In our country today, you are either far right or far left and nothing in between. Whatever happened to people with common sense? Perhaps that ancient anonymous philosopher was right when he said the problem with common sense was that it really was not that common anymore. Perhaps the demise of the common man explains this phenomenon. Or it could be that most people today have been educated beyond their common sensibilities. There was a time in my fathers country when people were proud of what they did. A few tried to get money without working for it. In my fathers country, there was a great deal of pride in working for what you had and not depending upon somebody with a handout. In my fathers country, there was a deep sense of accomplishment in earning what you had by the sweat of your brow. The only people sweating these days are politicians up for re-election. In my fathers country, there was no such thing as arbitrary handouts but plenty of hands out. It was considered our patriotic duty to help our neighbor when they were in trouble. Nobody looked to Uncle Sam to solve his or her problems. It was a community affair not a government mandate. In fact, if the truth were known, and evidently it is not, they stayed as far away from Uncle Sam as possible only communicating with him once a year on April 15. In those days, they saluted the flag, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were right proud to do so. Not one of them could imagine anybody ashamed of doing that in public. Today a lot is being said about the separation of church and state. My father would not understand the way some people are interpreting it. According to what is going on today they are trying to keep the church out of the state but make good and sure, the state runs the church. Isnt that why we had a revolution in the first place? In my fathers country, there was a separation between government control and people pursuing life, liberty and happiness. Oh, for those good old days. Also, in my fathers country baseball was a national sport not a business. I am not quite sure when it became a business but my father never thought it was. He often took me to the ball field on a Saturday afternoon to have fun, enjoy the game and eat the worlds most delicious hotdog. At least he said they were the worlds most delicious hotdogs. Our purpose in going was just to have fun. He did his share of making fun and harassing the other teams fans but it never crossed his mind to physically beat one of them nearly to death. If I remember correctly, wedgies were the order of the day. When our team won we celebrated and high-fived everybody around us. When our team lost, we determined with everything within us to slaughter them the next week on the field. When we said slaughter, we were talking figuratively. Credit was something my fathers generation frowned on. As a young person, I had in my mind to buy a bicycle. I took my father to the store to look at that prized bike. Well, my father stammered, as he looked the bike over. How much money youve got saved for this bike? I knew the lecture that was to follow. If you could not afford to buy something, you could not afford to have it. How many times have I heard that? Perhaps if my father could come back for a day we could send him to Washington, D.C. and explain to them this whole idea that if you cannot afford something you cannot afford something. It seemed to make sense to me and I was only a young person at the time. I guess when you get older you lose a lot of that good common sense. Then if elected and go to Washington, D.C., you leave all of that good common sense back home with your constituency who wonder what they elected you for. The verse of Scripture that was very important to my father was, And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it (Psalms 90:17 KJV). It may not be the same country my father loved, but I can still operate on the same principles that made him a patriotic father, and pray, Establish thou the work of our hands.

her first husband she had two children; Robert and Rene. At 11 years of age, Robert, or Bobby as Norellen calls him, was diagnosed with diabetes. She told me he cried because he wouldnt be able to join the military. After her children were off to school she worked in such diverse fields as real estate sales and the Early Learning Center toy store. When her husband decided to move to Arizona, she went first and got a job selling real estate. When he joined her, the situation in their relationship did not improve. After 20 years, she divorced him and set off on her own. For several years she owned and operated a craft and hobby shop in Alpena, Michigan. After completing her education, she took a job with the City of Lincoln Park as their Director of Senior Programs. In 1998 she retired and moved to Florida. Her son Bobby didnt let a little thing like diabetes get in his way. At age 16 he volunteered and became a camp counselor for diabetic children in Marquette, Michigan. Soon he had his sister Rene working with him during the summer months in camps not only in Marquette but also just north of Lapeer, Michigan. Bobby received a degree from Michigan State University and worked his way up to Program Director of the camps. At halftime during the Michigan/Michigan State game in 2001 he proposed to his girl friend. He wore a hat saying, I asked, and she wore a hat that read, I accepted. In November of 2001, the Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 devastating attack on our country had a profound effect on Bobby and his whole family. He called his Mom to tell her that he had just volunteered to become a fire fighter to which Norellen responded, Good for you. I just volunteered to work with the Red Cross. Tragically, on Dec. 26, 2002, Bobby was killed in a hunting accident while visiting his father in Wisconsin. This young man who had been described by friends and family as the life of the party and a great friend to everyone was now suddenly gone. Not one to be kept down, Norellen came to a realization that she had several nephews and nieces in military service. After 9/11 Bobby had written to each of them, his cousins, to express his deep affection and support. In Bobbys honor and memory, she began the program, Support our Soldiers. S.O.S. is set up to provide necessities and treats to our soldiers serving in combat areas in the Middle East and Afghanistan. S.O.S. and Norellen receive support from many different individuals and groups, among them the Cherrywood Veterans Club. The effectiveness of her work is displayed in the many large scrapbooks she has that are filled with letters and thank you notes from our troops. She also has three flags that have flown over base camps in those far off places, given to her by units that received her help. Norellen is happily married to her husband Ed. Back in 1994 they met at a singles club dinner and two years later, began their lives together. In recent years, Norellen has suffered through some serious injuries and illnesses. Hip replacements, broken ankles and COPD are just a few of the many hardships she has had to endure. Remarkably, Norellen has kept her sense of humor and gives a huge amount of credit to Ed, for his doting care and unflinching love. In spite of her limited mobility, she is active in Blessed Trinity Church; S.O.S. and she is the founder of Compassionate Friends here in Central Florida. Compassionate Friends is a support group for those parents who have lost children from what ever cause. CF offers counseling, care and resources to help parents cope with the horrific loss of a child. Norellen and her family are special people. Her daughter Rene is a neonatal nurse in Colonial Heights, Virginia. She also shares a deep love for Eds children; Joseph and Rosie Gray, who live in Ireland. Ed and Norellen have three grandchildren. We in the Cherrywood community are very fortunate to have courageous; caring; committed neighbors such as the Pickells. They are the type of people who dont ask for recognition but quietly go about making the world a better place just by being in it. Thank you Norellen and Ed for all you do and all youve done.

The play will be in the Palm Grove Club on Oct. 12, 13 and 14. Reservations for tickets are currently being accepted by our ticket chairperson, Linda Noel, by calling her at 352-8739908.

We had a wonderful time last year and are looking forward for the same this year.Royal Oaks Women s 18 Hole Golf After being rained out on May 29, the weather cooperated on Tuesday, June 5, and we played Tee to Green. Only the number of shots that it took to get to the green were counted. Thank goodness we did not have to worry about three putt holes that day. Of course for some of us it meant many shots that were just short of the green or just over the back, taking another stroke to actually get on the green. Golf can be such a mind game! The winners were: First Flight 1st place, JT Lemasters, 2nd place, Dianna Love; Second Flight 1st place, Janet Tully, 2nd place, Judy Klein, 3rd place, Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st placePatty Dougherty, 2nd place, Gayle Feeman.

Registration for vacation Bible school is available N estled in the heart of the University of Florida on West University Avenue is a treasure trove of Judaica. The Isser and Rae Price library of Judaica is a valuable resource for those engaged in serious Jewish studies as well as the average person who has an interest in Jewish life and theology. The library is headed by a remarkable young woman and British import, Dr. Rebecca Jefferson. Her background includes studying Hebrew on two kibbutzim in Israel, solid academics in Hebrew and Jewish studies at Cambridge University, as well as a keen interest in genizahs (storage rooms for old Judaica) and old manuscripts. The reputation of the library brought her to the States where she says she is freer to pursue her Jewish spirituality. When Rebecca offered to give me a guided tour, I certainly could not pass up this opportunity. Dr. Jeffersons enthusiasm for her work and dedication to the library was evident all during my tour. In her charming British accent, she related to me the highlights and history of the library as well as allowing for some hands-on time. The library was founded in the late s as a resource for the Jewish Studies program started at UF in 1973. Jack and Samuel Price of Jacksonville who gave the money to support the creation of the library, made the first and largest endowment to libraries at the time. It was named in honor of their parents, Isser and Rae Price. In 1981, a little over 30 years ago, the library was dedicated as the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica. Rebecca liked to tell me that the core of the collection and ensuring collections were based on the 3-Ms, that is the last initial of the three major players in the library acquisitions. Rabbi Leonard Mishkin is the first m of the trinity. The Chicago rabbi had the largest collection, some 40,000 volumes at the time, in the 1970s. Authenticated by scholar and Harvard Bibliographer, Charles Berlin, who described it as superb, the collection was purchased with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the first such award to be granted to a library and was later given a matching grant from the State of Florida recognizing the cultural and historical value of the collection. Included in Rabbi Mishkins collection were festschriften (papers put together to honor other scholars) and periodicals, which give us a glimpse into the Jewish world at the turn of the last century. The festschriften contained work not widely distributed and related famous people, places and events. The second m in the librarys history is Shlomo Marenof, a scholar in Hebrew literature from Brandeis University whose collection numbered 10,000 volumes. The final m in the librarys history comes from Morgensterns Book Store in the lower East Side of New York City. Under the aegis of its first librarian, Robert Singerman, many volumes were purchased in Yiddish augmenting the librarys collection. Today, the Price Library boasted some 95,000 volumes, is considered one of the top 20 academic libraries in the world and in the top 10 for Judaic collections. There are strong rabbinical as well as strong holocaust collections. In addition there are many volumes that predate the creation of the State of Israel, when the Jewish State was Palestine under the British Mandate. There are also books on all movements in Judaism as well as texts dealing with the Jews of various American cities and countries in the world. Much genealogy can be gleaned from the vast records and lists of Jewish residents here and abroad. There were also special sections for childrens selections and I tried to find some of my old Hebrew school textbooks. Of special note are the Yiskor memorial books. These volumes, written with much pathos and reminiscence, describe the vanished communities obliterated by the Nazis during World War II. In many cases, they are the only records left of what were once flourishing Jewish communities in Europe. The library has 800 of these books, first produced in Argentina in Yiddish, then in Israel in Hebrew and in recent years, in English translation. Toward the end of my tour, I was treated to some special tomes that Dr. Jefferson had in her office. Many were haggadot, the special ritual books for Passover. One, curiously, was in Marathi script, from Bombay, India, published in 1901 for the Jews of India. Rebecca tells me that when read, the words were Hebrew! Another haggadah published in 1918 in the early days of the Soviet Union was different from the ones we use today in the fact that it appeared to be more detailed. Of course this was during a time when traditional Judaism was the norm. I was also shown a copy of LIdea Sionista, a rare Zionist journal from the early days of the Zionist movement. It was published in Italy during 190104 and Price is the only library to have a copy. Before I left, I finally had a chance to view and touch the oldest volume in the whole library, a volume from the late 1400s, of responsa, that is, letters or correspondence from rabbis to other rabbis on topics of Jewish law. The writers of the day could never imagine that the lands discovered by Columbus would one day house Judaica and that these lands would become a haven for Jews. Rae Price said in 1981, The library is something for everyone to use. It has long been needed and it will live on and on. May her words be prophetic. Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 T his Sunday is Fathers Day, a day that doesnt get near as much attention as Mothers Day, but one that honors some of the unsung heroes in our nation. Were always hearing bad stories about fathers; just this past week there was a mega church minister who allegedly beat his daughter, for example. But for every father who has gotten into trouble, there are thousands, no, millions, who have done the right things all their lives and been there for their children. This week its time to honor them, and those who are fortunate enough to have their dads still around should do so. The family gatherings, the flowers, etc., arent the same for the third Sunday in June as they are for the second Sunday in May, but its just as important to honor dad as much as you honor mom. At some point, most of us lose our fathers and all we are left with are memories. My dad died in 2004 after a seven-year battle with dementia, which manifested itself, to the rest of the family, anyway, after my mom died in 1997. It can be a tough road. I am fortunate to have a wife who was a fabulous caregiver. Dad went into an assisted living facility shortly after mom died, and my wife volunteered there, visited regularly and even ran their bingo program. I tried to visit often, but many times I was out of town working and couldnt take part in some of the activities. Dad was a World War II veteran of the China-India-Burma Theater. He was born and raised in East St. Louis, Illinois, and I remember spending a couple of weeks out there every August (it was brutally hot) as we visited on our annual vacation. One year I flew out two weeks early, and got to stay for a month with my grandparents. Yes, you read it right. In those days I even flew sometimes. East St. Louis, I understand, has deteriorated over the years, but then it was a great place to visit. My dad took me all over the Northeast, visiting historical sites. He was a member of a group called the Catholic War Veterans, and once was the keynote speaker on Memorial Day (we always had a parade). I still miss him, and sometimes wish I could just say hello. For those of you who still have that chance, dont let it pass by. And to all the dads out there, happy Fathers Day.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

B asically, in this country, we have a two-party system. Yes, there are other parties and there is the ability to be a write-in candidate, but usually its Republicans vs. Demcorats. With the closing of qualifying last week, the local political races are set, and its evident from the lists put out by the supervisor of elections that Floridas primary system needs some work. There are several races where there are no Democrats, meaning that the Republican candidates who survive the primary should be automatically elected. But state law says that if someone else qualifies for the election in November, there must be an election then, even if one major party or another is not represented. By doing this, the state disenfranchises voters of the party that is not represented on the ballot. This year, for example, there is only one Democrat running for County Commission Jessica Cookie Hadley in District 5. So having the election spread out to November is perfectly legitimate. However, the other two commission races will carry over to November, because there are write-in candidates in both races. Facing the facts, the winner of the August primary for Republicans, in which Democrats cant vote, will probably be the winner in November in Districts 1 and 3. What this means is that Democrats will have little say in who represents those districts. True, they could vote for the write-in candidate, but thats not likely. The change should be simple. The primary should be open to both parties when there is a write-in candidate, much as it already is open where there are candidates of only one party. Then the entire thing could be decided by everyone in the primary, without the expense, or farce, of taking the race to the general election. Better still, the state could change write-in candidates to what that type of candidate originally was someone whose name was written in without any previous qualifying. Many agree that the write-in system is a ploy to disenfranchise one party or another. Its time to end that possibility. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY State primary system needs an overhaul Its time for us to honor our dads Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Politics, A little knowledge is dangerousI heard directly, and read many articles in the newspapers and saw on TV, much regarding the political atmosphere at this time. Apparently the party trying to get in the White House is the most ill-informed. I listened last night to a speech Mitt Romney made and he said he had a plan to get the economy back up and running again. And theres that word again, again. All innuendo and no substance. Theres one thing youve got to give Obama credit for and thats for surrounding himself with probably three of the most intelligent people in the country, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta. Now, who does Romney have? Oh yes, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Erik Cantor. Now theres the Three Witches of Eastwick. In fact the three most dangerous people in the United States. Someone told me George W. Bush was responsible for the Second Depression, and do you know thats right. The depression of 2008 also by a Republican, when many of us lost hundreds of thousands of dollars and Bush left to Obama to salvage. And hes doing that. Those of you retired from the auto industry should be kissing Obamas shoes for saving the auto industry, just as hes saved the banking industry. How quick we forget. Jobs are not a problem, if you want to work and a lot of people on welfare dont want to work. Why should they, when they already have a golden cow? There is so much hatred out there for Obama and I wonder why. The Republicans keep bringing up the birth card but they are the jokers. When you have no facts to back you up, make up lies. I think the Native Americans call that, Speaking with Forked Tongue. It still holds true. Bill Ford Ocala Message to graduatesCongratulations for the good advice to the graduates in your commentary section of the Citizen I have always worked with young people from my days in the NYPD to the years I worked with the Juvenile Justice Bureau here in Florida. Lord knows, young people need plenty of positive influence during these difficult social times. As an Adjunct professor in Sociology at CF, I am very much aware of the need for positive influence on the young students. I always tell them not to take anything for granted and question things they do not understand. It is the same advice I give my son Joseph who also attends CF.

and loving so she set out to get Fathers Day as a recognized holiday just as Mothers Day had been. Her efforts paid off and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June to be the first official Fathers Day in the United States. Presidential proclamations continued until 1972 when President Nixon established a permanent national observance on the third Sunday of June. Unfortunately, we live in a society today when the role of a father has been greatly diminished. More and more children are being born out of wedlock and have no father figure around and divorce is so prevalent that many children are raised with no dad in the immediate family circle. On Sunday, we take time to honor those men who are still courageous; loving; protective and selfless in their care of children. Society may say that dads are not necessary; not relevant or not important. For those who have fathered children or for those of us who have had a caring dad, we know better. If you are lucky enough to have a dad still alive, the red rose is a symbol of your love for him. If your father is deceased, the white rose recognizes your loss. Dont forget your dad whether he is alive or not this Sunday. Cherrywood wishes our each of our resident dads a very happy Fathers Day.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 our community. This week the spotlight shines on Norellen Pickell. Norellen was born in Detroit Michigan where she attended Holy Redeemer High School. She is a graduate of Spring Arbor College where she earned a degree in Human Services and Gerontology. Her first marriage was in July of 1967, at the same time as the Detroit Riots. She laughingly related how she had to get permission from the governor to be out after curfew. Norellen also talked about how they were stopped by a car full of uniformed police officers with drawn long guns on their way to their honeymoon. A pretty exciting honeymoon, I observed. No, not really, she laughed, not as exciting as my second one. During her marriage to A nother smashing success for Cherrywood and the Social Committee took place on Saturday evening with the kickoff dinner for 100 Days of Summer. A record turnout of upwards of 250 people took part in the event enjoying a delicious chicken dinner followed by an evening of excellent entertainment. Our Social Committee led by Chairman Jay OHern did a magnificent job of getting the guests served. He was assisted by Joan and Dave Siegel; Marguerite Fiorenza; Peggy Konar; Bill Wetherby (Fred OHerns nephew who is visiting from Colorado); Monica Becotte; Claudette Cote; Nancy Archer; Bill Brotherhood; Bill Mahar and Fred OHern. The entire event was sponsored by Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management which meant the food was free and so was the entertainment. The Social Committee would like to send out a special thanks to Geri, Jim, Justin, and Fred from the CWPM staff for their support, especially Justin for almost single handedly handling the clean up. Rich Becotte handled the entertainment much to the pleasure of all who danced the night away to his vast array of songs. Rich is always a delight at our functions. In the drawing for the night that was designed to get everyones email addresses, Holly Bragdon was the winner. In addition, there were three 50/50 prizes awarded. There were some very minor missteps for the evening. For example, the serving line ran short of potato salad and committee members scattered to find more to bring in. With only a minor delay, the people all were served and for the most part took the short interruption with a good natured smile. All in all, it was a great evening and everyone had fun. The Social Committee should be justifiably proud of their work and this terrific event. Veteran honoredCherrywood resident Larry Giles, a former officer of the Cherrywood Veterans Club, received a rare honor this past Memorial Day in his home town of McKeesport and White Oak, Pennsylvania. Larry, along with four of his brothers, all veterans, received official proclamations from the Mayor for their service to this country. Larrys brothers; Ed, age 88; Jim, age 87; and Jerry, 85; all served in World War II. Larry 78 and his brother Bill, 76, served during the Korean War. Another brother, Bud, a U.S. Army veteran with the 82nd Airborne Division, passed away in 2007. There is no doubt that the Giles family has given a great deal to this country. After a ride in a convertible in the parades of both towns, the mayor issued each one of the brothers a proclamation. Brother Bud received a proclamation that was presented to his son, Michael. A Marine veteran, Larry served during the Korean War era. As one would imagine, all of the brothers are extremely close and have been all their lives. It was a rare and well deserved honor for them to be the headliners in the Memorial Day parade of their home town. Veterans Appreciation DayOn July 7, the Veterans Club will be putting on its Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Lees Chicken w/biscuit; green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy, iced tea and lemonade will be served free to all veterans and their significant others. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. and gives way to Kenny Jackson and the entertainment from 6 until 9 p.m. Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com 100 Days of Summer kickoff dinner was a success C HERRYWOOD ESTATES J E John Everlove Larry Giles SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE10 Editors Note: This column was edited to fit in the allotted space.

Veterans ClubOn June 9 at the Veterans Club Meeting Robert Thomas was our guest speaker. Mr. Thomas is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant Medic who has served two tours in Iran and one tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is currently the Property Manager for Ritz Veterans Village here in Ocala. Ritz is a transitional facility designed to help get veterans off the streets and back into society. With room for 47 males and three females, the facility currently has 11 men and two women. The newly remodeled rooms are filling fast as the VA in conjunction with the Volunteers of America process the paperwork and begin the challenge of changing lives. Eugene Wachsmuth received a Certificate of Appreciation for his grandson Xavier who wrote a special card that was read at the Memorial Day service. Also at the meeting, Norellen Pickell, the head of our Support our Soldiers (S.O.S.) project spoke briefly about her work with sending packages to our service personnel that are stationed overseas. (See Spotlight in this issue) At the meeting, President Bill Mahar presented Norellen with a check for $200 to help defray postage expenses and to assist in sending a touch of home to our forces in far away lands. Both Mr. Thomas and Ms. Pickell expressed a need for items for our service men and women. For the Ritz House, personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies such as paper towels; window cleaner; toilet paper and in general, those things that can keep both resident and room in good order. For our people overseas, Ms. Pickell suggested power bars; hard candy; beef jerky and all items that remind the troops of home. Starting next week, there will be boxes in the clubhouse for donations to both of these worthwhile out reach programs. If you have items please feel free to bring them by and put them into the boxes designated for these charities. In addition, if you would like to donate money for postage, make your check payable to the Cherrywood Veterans Club and designate SOS in the memo line. Just drop it by the office to Geri and know that you have made a difference. The Veterans Club appreciates all of the support that this wonderful community gives. Fathers Day4000 years ago in a quaint little place called Babylonia; there lived a boy named Elmuru. Probably seeking a raise in his allowance, one day Elmuru wrote a note to his father wishing him good health and a long life. Apparently the Dad didnt have much money to inherit. That is the first record of a Fathers Day in history. More recently, in 1909 a young lady in Spokane, Washington, by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd heard a Mothers Day sermon in her local church. Sonora had been raised by her father as her mother had died early in her childhood. She considered her father courageous; selfless Guests are welcome for just $7 per person. See Geri for tickets and watch this column for more details as we get closer to July 7. Democratic Club Friday June 15 at 2 p.m. the Cherrywood Democratic Club will meet in the clubhouse.

Veterans ClubOn June 9 at the Veterans Club Meeting Robert Thomas was our guest speaker. Mr. Thomas is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant Medic who has served two tours in Iran and one tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is currently the Property Manager for Ritz Veterans Village here in Ocala. Ritz is a transitional facility designed to help get veterans off the streets and back into society. With room for 47 males and three females, the facility currently has 11 men and two women. The newly remodeled rooms are filling fast as the VA in conjunction with the Volunteers of America process the paperwork and begin the challenge of changing lives. Eugene Wachsmuth received a Certificate of Appreciation for his grandson Xavier who wrote a special card that was read at the Memorial Day service. Also at the meeting, Norellen Pickell, the head of our Support our Soldiers (S.O.S.) project spoke briefly about her work with sending packages to our service personnel that are stationed overseas. (See Spotlight in this issue) At the meeting, President Bill Mahar presented Norellen with a check for $200 to help defray postage expenses and to assist in sending a touch of home to our forces in far away lands. Both Mr. Thomas and Ms. Pickell expressed a need for items for our service men and women. For the Ritz House, personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies such as paper towels; window cleaner; toilet paper and in general, those things that can keep both resident and room in good order. For our people overseas, Ms. Pickell suggested power bars; hard candy; beef jerky and all items that remind the troops of home. Starting next week, there will be boxes in the clubhouse for donations to both of these worthwhile out reach programs. If you have items please feel free to bring them by and put them into the boxes designated for these charities. In addition, if you would like to donate money for postage, make your check payable to the Cherrywood Veterans Club and designate SOS in the memo line. Just drop it by the office to Geri and know that you have made a difference. The Veterans Club appreciates all of the support that this wonderful community gives. Fathers Day4000 years ago in a quaint little place called Babylonia; there lived a boy named Elmuru. Probably seeking a raise in his allowance, one day Elmuru wrote a note to his father wishing him good health and a long life. Apparently the Dad didnt have much money to inherit. That is the first record of a Fathers Day in history. More recently, in 1909 a young lady in Spokane, Washington, by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd heard a Mothers Day sermon in her local church. Sonora had been raised by her father as her mother had died early in her childhood. She considered her father courageous; selfless Guests are welcome for just $7 per person. See Geri for tickets and watch this column for more details as we get closer to July 7. Democratic Club Friday June 15 at 2 p.m. the Cherrywood Democratic Club will meet in the clubhouse.

The various teams fill in their guesses on answer sheets as they compete for bragging rights and a small cash award. It only costs a dollar to play and if you dont have a team, come out anyway and youll be assigned to one. Laughter abounds as the competition is light hearted and friendly.

and loving so she set out to get Fathers Day as a recognized holiday just as Mothers Day had been. Her efforts paid off and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June to be the first official Fathers Day in the United States. Presidential proclamations continued until 1972 when President Nixon established a permanent national observance on the third Sunday of June. Unfortunately, we live in a society today when the role of a father has been greatly diminished. More and more children are being born out of wedlock and have no father figure around and divorce is so prevalent that many children are raised with no dad in the immediate family circle. On Sunday, we take time to honor those men who are still courageous; loving; protective and selfless in their care of children. Society may say that dads are not necessary; not relevant or not important. For those who have fathered children or for those of us who have had a caring dad, we know better. If you are lucky enough to have a dad still alive, the red rose is a symbol of your love for him. If your father is deceased, the white rose recognizes your loss. Dont forget your dad whether he is alive or not this Sunday. Cherrywood wishes our each of our resident dads a very happy Fathers Day.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 our community. This week the spotlight shines on Norellen Pickell. Norellen was born in Detroit Michigan where she attended Holy Redeemer High School. She is a graduate of Spring Arbor College where she earned a degree in Human Services and Gerontology. Her first marriage was in July of 1967, at the same time as the Detroit Riots. She laughingly related how she had to get permission from the governor to be out after curfew. Norellen also talked about how they were stopped by a car full of uniformed police officers with drawn long guns on their way to their honeymoon. A pretty exciting honeymoon, I observed. No, not really, she laughed, not as exciting as my second one. During her marriage to A nother smashing success for Cherrywood and the Social Committee took place on Saturday evening with the kickoff dinner for 100 Days of Summer. A record turnout of upwards of 250 people took part in the event enjoying a delicious chicken dinner followed by an evening of excellent entertainment. Our Social Committee led by Chairman Jay OHern did a magnificent job of getting the guests served. He was assisted by Joan and Dave Siegel; Marguerite Fiorenza; Peggy Konar; Bill Wetherby (Fred OHerns nephew who is visiting from Colorado); Monica Becotte; Claudette Cote; Nancy Archer; Bill Brotherhood; Bill Mahar and Fred OHern. The entire event was sponsored by Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management which meant the food was free and so was the entertainment. The Social Committee would like to send out a special thanks to Geri, Jim, Justin, and Fred from the CWPM staff for their support, especially Justin for almost single handedly handling the clean up. Rich Becotte handled the entertainment much to the pleasure of all who danced the night away to his vast array of songs. Rich is always a delight at our functions. In the drawing for the night that was designed to get everyones email addresses, Holly Bragdon was the winner. In addition, there were three 50/50 prizes awarded. There were some very minor missteps for the evening. For example, the serving line ran short of potato salad and committee members scattered to find more to bring in. With only a minor delay, the people all were served and for the most part took the short interruption with a good natured smile. All in all, it was a great evening and everyone had fun. The Social Committee should be justifiably proud of their work and this terrific event. Veteran honoredCherrywood resident Larry Giles, a former officer of the Cherrywood Veterans Club, received a rare honor this past Memorial Day in his home town of McKeesport and White Oak, Pennsylvania. Larry, along with four of his brothers, all veterans, received official proclamations from the Mayor for their service to this country. Larrys brothers; Ed, age 88; Jim, age 87; and Jerry, 85; all served in World War II. Larry 78 and his brother Bill, 76, served during the Korean War. Another brother, Bud, a U.S. Army veteran with the 82nd Airborne Division, passed away in 2007. There is no doubt that the Giles family has given a great deal to this country. After a ride in a convertible in the parades of both towns, the mayor issued each one of the brothers a proclamation. Brother Bud received a proclamation that was presented to his son, Michael. A Marine veteran, Larry served during the Korean War era. As one would imagine, all of the brothers are extremely close and have been all their lives. It was a rare and well deserved honor for them to be the headliners in the Memorial Day parade of their home town. Veterans Appreciation DayOn July 7, the Veterans Club will be putting on its Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Lees Chicken w/biscuit; green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy, iced tea and lemonade will be served free to all veterans and their significant others.

Registration for vacation Bible school is available N estled in the heart of the University of Florida on West University Avenue is a treasure trove of Judaica. The Isser and Rae Price library of Judaica is a valuable resource for those engaged in serious Jewish studies as well as the average person who has an interest in Jewish life and theology. The library is headed by a remarkable young woman and British import, Dr. Rebecca Jefferson. Her background includes studying Hebrew on two kibbutzim in Israel, solid academics in Hebrew and Jewish studies at Cambridge University, as well as a keen interest in genizahs (storage rooms for old Judaica) and old manuscripts. The reputation of the library brought her to the States where she says she is freer to pursue her Jewish spirituality. When Rebecca offered to give me a guided tour, I certainly could not pass up this opportunity. Dr. Jeffersons enthusiasm for her work and dedication to the library was evident all during my tour. In her charming British accent, she related to me the highlights and history of the library as well as allowing for some hands-on time. The library was founded in the late s as a resource for the Jewish Studies program started at UF in 1973. Jack and Samuel Price of Jacksonville who gave the money to support the creation of the library, made the first and largest endowment to libraries at the time. It was named in honor of their parents, Isser and Rae Price. In 1981, a little over 30 years ago, the library was dedicated as the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica. Rebecca liked to tell me that the core of the collection and ensuring collections were based on the 3-Ms, that is the last initial of the three major players in the library acquisitions. Rabbi Leonard Mishkin is the first m of the trinity. The Chicago rabbi had the largest collection, some 40,000 volumes at the time, in the 1970s. Authenticated by scholar and Harvard Bibliographer, Charles Berlin, who described it as superb, the collection was purchased with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the first such award to be granted to a library and was later given a matching grant from the State of Florida recognizing the cultural and historical value of the collection. Included in Rabbi Mishkins collection were festschriften (papers put together to honor other scholars) and periodicals, which give us a glimpse into the Jewish world at the turn of the last century. The festschriften contained work not widely distributed and related famous people, places and events. The second m in the librarys history is Shlomo Marenof, a scholar in Hebrew literature from Brandeis University whose collection numbered 10,000 volumes. The final m in the librarys history comes from Morgensterns Book Store in the lower East Side of New York City. Under the aegis of its first librarian, Robert Singerman, many volumes were purchased in Yiddish augmenting the librarys collection. Today, the Price Library boasted some 95,000 volumes, is considered one of the top 20 academic libraries in the world and in the top 10 for Judaic collections. There are strong rabbinical as well as strong holocaust collections. In addition there are many volumes that predate the creation of the State of Israel, when the Jewish State was Palestine under the British Mandate. There are also books on all movements in Judaism as well as texts dealing with the Jews of various American cities and countries in the world. Much genealogy can be gleaned from the vast records and lists of Jewish residents here and abroad. There were also special sections for childrens selections and I tried to find some of my old Hebrew school textbooks. Of special note are the Yiskor memorial books. These volumes, written with much pathos and reminiscence, describe the vanished communities obliterated by the Nazis during World War II. In many cases, they are the only records left of what were once flourishing Jewish communities in Europe. The library has 800 of these books, first produced in Argentina in Yiddish, then in Israel in Hebrew and in recent years, in English translation. Toward the end of my tour, I was treated to some special tomes that Dr. Jefferson had in her office. Many were haggadot, the special ritual books for Passover. One, curiously, was in Marathi script, from Bombay, India, published in 1901 for the Jews of India. Rebecca tells me that when read, the words were Hebrew! Another haggadah published in 1918 in the early days of the Soviet Union was different from the ones we use today in the fact that it appeared to be more detailed. Of course this was during a time when traditional Judaism was the norm. I was also shown a copy of LIdea Sionista, a rare Zionist journal from the early days of the Zionist movement. It was published in Italy during 190104 and Price is the only library to have a copy. Before I left, I finally had a chance to view and touch the oldest volume in the whole library, a volume from the late 1400s, of responsa, that is, letters or correspondence from rabbis to other rabbis on topics of Jewish law. The writers of the day could never imagine that the lands discovered by Columbus would one day house Judaica and that these lands would become a haven for Jews. Rae Price said in 1981, The library is something for everyone to use. It has long been needed and it will live on and on. May her words be prophetic. Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 T his Sunday is Fathers Day, a day that doesnt get near as much attention as Mothers Day, but one that honors some of the unsung heroes in our nation. Were always hearing bad stories about fathers; just this past week there was a mega church minister who allegedly beat his daughter, for example. But for every father who has gotten into trouble, there are thousands, no, millions, who have done the right things all their lives and been there for their children. This week its time to honor them, and those who are fortunate enough to have their dads still around should do so. The family gatherings, the flowers, etc., arent the same for the third Sunday in June as they are for the second Sunday in May, but its just as important to honor dad as much as you honor mom. At some point, most of us lose our fathers and all we are left with are memories. My dad died in 2004 after a seven-year battle with dementia, which manifested itself, to the rest of the family, anyway, after my mom died in 1997. It can be a tough road. I am fortunate to have a wife who was a fabulous caregiver. Dad went into an assisted living facility shortly after mom died, and my wife volunteered there, visited regularly and even ran their bingo program. I tried to visit often, but many times I was out of town working and couldnt take part in some of the activities. Dad was a World War II veteran of the China-India-Burma Theater. He was born and raised in East St. Louis, Illinois, and I remember spending a couple of weeks out there every August (it was brutally hot) as we visited on our annual vacation. One year I flew out two weeks early, and got to stay for a month with my grandparents. Yes, you read it right. In those days I even flew sometimes. East St. Louis, I understand, has deteriorated over the years, but then it was a great place to visit. My dad took me all over the Northeast, visiting historical sites. He was a member of a group called the Catholic War Veterans, and once was the keynote speaker on Memorial Day (we always had a parade). I still miss him, and sometimes wish I could just say hello. For those of you who still have that chance, dont let it pass by. And to all the dads out there, happy Fathers Day.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

B asically, in this country, we have a two-party system. Yes, there are other parties and there is the ability to be a write-in candidate, but usually its Republicans vs. Demcorats. With the closing of qualifying last week, the local political races are set, and its evident from the lists put out by the supervisor of elections that Floridas primary system needs some work. There are several races where there are no Democrats, meaning that the Republican candidates who survive the primary should be automatically elected. But state law says that if someone else qualifies for the election in November, there must be an election then, even if one major party or another is not represented. By doing this, the state disenfranchises voters of the party that is not represented on the ballot. This year, for example, there is only one Democrat running for County Commission Jessica Cookie Hadley in District 5. So having the election spread out to November is perfectly legitimate. However, the other two commission races will carry over to November, because there are write-in candidates in both races. Facing the facts, the winner of the August primary for Republicans, in which Democrats cant vote, will probably be the winner in November in Districts 1 and 3. What this means is that Democrats will have little say in who represents those districts. True, they could vote for the write-in candidate, but thats not likely. The change should be simple. The primary should be open to both parties when there is a write-in candidate, much as it already is open where there are candidates of only one party. Then the entire thing could be decided by everyone in the primary, without the expense, or farce, of taking the race to the general election. Better still, the state could change write-in candidates to what that type of candidate originally was someone whose name was written in without any previous qualifying. Many agree that the write-in system is a ploy to disenfranchise one party or another. Its time to end that possibility. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY State primary system needs an overhaul Its time for us to honor our dads Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED Politics, A little knowledge is dangerousI heard directly, and read many articles in the newspapers and saw on TV, much regarding the political atmosphere at this time. Apparently the party trying to get in the White House is the most ill-informed. I listened last night to a speech Mitt Romney made and he said he had a plan to get the economy back up and running again. And theres that word again, again. All innuendo and no substance. Theres one thing youve got to give Obama credit for and thats for surrounding himself with probably three of the most intelligent people in the country, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta. Now, who does Romney have? Oh yes, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Erik Cantor. Now theres the Three Witches of Eastwick. In fact the three most dangerous people in the United States. Someone told me George W. Bush was responsible for the Second Depression, and do you know thats right. The depression of 2008 also by a Republican, when many of us lost hundreds of thousands of dollars and Bush left to Obama to salvage. And hes doing that. Those of you retired from the auto industry should be kissing Obamas shoes for saving the auto industry, just as hes saved the banking industry. How quick we forget. Jobs are not a problem, if you want to work and a lot of people on welfare dont want to work. Why should they, when they already have a golden cow? There is so much hatred out there for Obama and I wonder why. The Republicans keep bringing up the birth card but they are the jokers. When you have no facts to back you up, make up lies. I think the Native Americans call that, Speaking with Forked Tongue. It still holds true. Bill Ford Ocala Message to graduatesCongratulations for the good advice to the graduates in your commentary section of the Citizen I have always worked with young people from my days in the NYPD to the years I worked with the Juvenile Justice Bureau here in Florida. Lord knows, young people need plenty of positive influence during these difficult social times. As an Adjunct professor in Sociology at CF, I am very much aware of the need for positive influence on the young students. I always tell them not to take anything for granted and question things they do not understand. It is the same advice I give my son Joseph who also attends CF.

her first husband she had two children; Robert and Rene. At 11 years of age, Robert, or Bobby as Norellen calls him, was diagnosed with diabetes. She told me he cried because he wouldnt be able to join the military. After her children were off to school she worked in such diverse fields as real estate sales and the Early Learning Center toy store. When her husband decided to move to Arizona, she went first and got a job selling real estate. When he joined her, the situation in their relationship did not improve. After 20 years, she divorced him and set off on her own. For several years she owned and operated a craft and hobby shop in Alpena, Michigan. After completing her education, she took a job with the City of Lincoln Park as their Director of Senior Programs. In 1998 she retired and moved to Florida. Her son Bobby didnt let a little thing like diabetes get in his way. At age 16 he volunteered and became a camp counselor for diabetic children in Marquette, Michigan. Soon he had his sister Rene working with him during the summer months in camps not only in Marquette but also just north of Lapeer, Michigan. Bobby received a degree from Michigan State University and worked his way up to Program Director of the camps. At halftime during the Michigan/Michigan State game in 2001 he proposed to his girl friend. He wore a hat saying, I asked, and she wore a hat that read, I accepted. In November of 2001, the Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 devastating attack on our country had a profound effect on Bobby and his whole family. He called his Mom to tell her that he had just volunteered to become a fire fighter to which Norellen responded, Good for you. I just volunteered to work with the Red Cross. Tragically, on Dec. 26, 2002, Bobby was killed in a hunting accident while visiting his father in Wisconsin. This young man who had been described by friends and family as the life of the party and a great friend to everyone was now suddenly gone. Not one to be kept down, Norellen came to a realization that she had several nephews and nieces in military service. After 9/11 Bobby had written to each of them, his cousins, to express his deep affection and support. In Bobbys honor and memory, she began the program, Support our Soldiers. S.O.S. is set up to provide necessities and treats to our soldiers serving in combat areas in the Middle East and Afghanistan. S.O.S. and Norellen receive support from many different individuals and groups, among them the Cherrywood Veterans Club. The effectiveness of her work is displayed in the many large scrapbooks she has that are filled with letters and thank you notes from our troops. She also has three flags that have flown over base camps in those far off places, given to her by units that received her help. Norellen is happily married to her husband Ed. Back in 1994 they met at a singles club dinner and two years later, began their lives together. In recent years, Norellen has suffered through some serious injuries and illnesses. Hip replacements, broken ankles and COPD are just a few of the many hardships she has had to endure. Remarkably, Norellen has kept her sense of humor and gives a huge amount of credit to Ed, for his doting care and unflinching love. In spite of her limited mobility, she is active in Blessed Trinity Church; S.O.S. and she is the founder of Compassionate Friends here in Central Florida. Compassionate Friends is a support group for those parents who have lost children from what ever cause. CF offers counseling, care and resources to help parents cope with the horrific loss of a child. Norellen and her family are special people. Her daughter Rene is a neonatal nurse in Colonial Heights, Virginia. She also shares a deep love for Eds children; Joseph and Rosie Gray, who live in Ireland. Ed and Norellen have three grandchildren. We in the Cherrywood community are very fortunate to have courageous; caring; committed neighbors such as the Pickells. They are the type of people who dont ask for recognition but quietly go about making the world a better place just by being in it. Thank you Norellen and Ed for all you do and all youve done. From Your ReporterIn last weeks edition of the Spotlight, the picture of Howard and Arlene Mayberry was omitted because of a computer glitch. We made up for that in this weeks paper. Now when you see them you will know who these special people are. Good ideas are always welcome so send your comments and suggestions to me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Your opinion counts.

Only the number of shots that it took to get to the green were counted. Thank goodness we did not have to worry about three putt holes that day. Of course for some of us it meant many shots that were just short of the green or just over the back, taking another stroke to actually get on the green. Golf can be such a mind game! The winners were: First Flight 1st place, JT Lemasters, 2nd place, Dianna Love; Second Flight 1st place, Janet Tully, 2nd place, Judy Klein, 3rd place, Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st placePatty Dougherty, 2nd place, Gayle Feeman.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com F athers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers. Tripped upA mother was taking her young son for a ride in the car. On their way home, he asked, Mother, where are all the infernal idiots? Why, Son, she replied, they only happen to be on the highway when your father is driving. Quadrupled problemsWith the advent of fertility drugs more and more quadruplets are born annually in any major city. This has resulted in a common occurrence that when one starts howling, the others will join in until you have a cacophony of screams. Many an exasperated and fatigued father now awakens his wife in the middle of the night complaining, Four crying out loud. Big bad dad Just recently during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight? The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. I cant dear, she said. I have to sleep in Daddys room. A long silence was broken at last by his shaking little voice, The big sissy.Pop cornFathers Day always worried James. He was afraid that he would get a gift he couldnt afford. A man wanted to have breakfast in bed on Fathers Day. His kids put a cot in the kitchen. Its hard for a five-footsix father to explain to his six-foot-one son why junk food is bad for you. Dad can always count on getting one thing on Fathers Day all the bills from Mothers Day. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. Mother fish to school of baby fish, Your father, may he rest in peace, was considered quite a catch. By the numbersFather was completely lost in the kitchen and never ate unless someone prepared a meal for him. When Mother was ill, however, he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items. Dad returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had one bag of sugar, two-dozen eggs, three hams, four boxes of detergent, five boxes of crackers, six eggplants, and seven green peppers. All wet Before performing a baptism, the minister said to the young father, Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it? I think so, the man replied. My wife has made appetizers and we have a caterer coming to provide plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests. I dont mean that, the priest responded. I mean, are you prepared spiritually? Oh, sure, came the reply. Ive got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey.Cant please em all Most of Rons his friends were already married while he just bounced from one relationship to the next. A friend asked him, Whats the matter, are you looking for the perfect woman? Cant you find anyone who suits you? Ron replied. I meet a lot of nice girls, but as soon as I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesnt like them. So I keep on looking. Listen, his friend suggested, Why dont you find a girl whos just like your Mother? Weeks passed before Ron and his friend met again. So Ron. Did you find the perfect girl yet? Ron answered, Yes I found one just like Mom. My mother loved her, they became great friends. Excellent! So are you and this girl engaged yet? Im afraid not, Ron replied, My Father cant stand her! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. This weekend, time to enjoy some humor about fathers P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank C elebrating another Fathers Day without my father I cannot help thinking how much has changed since he died. If he were to return today, he would find things quite different. In all reality, this is not my fathers world anymore. I might just as well say it. This is not my fathers country anymore, either. The country my father loves seems to have all but disappeared. During his time, a deep-seated patriotic pride permeated throughout our country. We were proud of what our forefathers had accomplished and we were willing to die to preserve that heritage. Today, it seems the past is simply the past and has no bearing whatsoever on the present. This may be why history books are being rewritten today. This, however, is a fallacy encouraged by those who do not know the right hand from their left hand. In our country today, you are either far right or far left and nothing in between. Whatever happened to people with common sense? Perhaps that ancient anonymous philosopher was right when he said the problem with common sense was that it really was not that common anymore. Perhaps the demise of the common man explains this phenomenon. Or it could be that most people today have been educated beyond their common sensibilities. There was a time in my fathers country when people were proud of what they did. A few tried to get money without working for it. In my fathers country, there was a great deal of pride in working for what you had and not depending upon somebody with a handout. In my fathers country, there was a deep sense of accomplishment in earning what you had by the sweat of your brow. The only people sweating these days are politicians up for re-election. In my fathers country, there was no such thing as arbitrary handouts but plenty of hands out. It was considered our patriotic duty to help our neighbor when they were in trouble. Nobody looked to Uncle Sam to solve his or her problems. It was a community affair not a government mandate. In fact, if the truth were known, and evidently it is not, they stayed as far away from Uncle Sam as possible only communicating with him once a year on April 15. In those days, they saluted the flag, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were right proud to do so. Not one of them could imagine anybody ashamed of doing that in public. Today a lot is being said about the separation of church and state. My father would not understand the way some people are interpreting it. According to what is going on today they are trying to keep the church out of the state but make good and sure, the state runs the church. Isnt that why we had a revolution in the first place? In my fathers country, there was a separation between government control and people pursuing life, liberty and happiness. Oh, for those good old days. Also, in my fathers country baseball was a national sport not a business. I am not quite sure when it became a business but my father never thought it was. He often took me to the ball field on a Saturday afternoon to have fun, enjoy the game and eat the worlds most delicious hotdog. At least he said they were the worlds most delicious hotdogs. Our purpose in going was just to have fun. He did his share of making fun and harassing the other teams fans but it never crossed his mind to physically beat one of them nearly to death. If I remember correctly, wedgies were the order of the day. When our team won we celebrated and high-fived everybody around us. When our team lost, we determined with everything within us to slaughter them the next week on the field. When we said slaughter, we were talking figuratively. Credit was something my fathers generation frowned on. As a young person, I had in my mind to buy a bicycle. I took my father to the store to look at that prized bike. Well, my father stammered, as he looked the bike over. How much money youve got saved for this bike? I knew the lecture that was to follow. If you could not afford to buy something, you could not afford to have it. How many times have I heard that? Perhaps if my father could come back for a day we could send him to Washington, D.C. and explain to them this whole idea that if you cannot afford something you cannot afford something. It seemed to make sense to me and I was only a young person at the time. I guess when you get older you lose a lot of that good common sense. Then if elected and go to Washington, D.C., you leave all of that good common sense back home with your constituency who wonder what they elected you for. The verse of Scripture that was very important to my father was, And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it (Psalms 90:17 KJV). It may not be the same country my father loved, but I can still operate on the same principles that made him a patriotic father, and pray, Establish thou the work of our hands.

Friday, June 15, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, June 15, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE INNOCENT By David Baldacci There are many remarkable episodes in this tour de force of storytelling, starting with Will Robie, a government hit man who rids the nation of its most formidable enemies. A true professional, Robie never questions his assignments. Yet on this one occasion he disobeys orders at his peril. Poised with gun cocked, he looks down on a young sleeping mother, a small child asleep by her side, a baby in a carrier nearby. Something strikes him as terribly wrong with the assignment. As he hesitates, shots are fired through the bedroom window, killing both mother and child with one bullet. Then Robie is fired upon. Thereafter, in a plot so complex its almost byzantine, Robie is on the move, dodging bullets from his former employers and accompanied by a precocious teenage girl whose parents were mysteriously murdered and who finds herself in danger. Julie Getty escaped abusive foster parents and ran home only to find her parents being held at gunpoint and her mother screaming for the girl to run. The last thing she heard her mother tell her captives was that Julie didnt know anything. To stay alive and protect Julie, Robie has to be on constant alert. But as he tells us, professional assassins are unique in this respect: When you were on a mission you looked for things that other people would never focus on. Like entry and exit points. Always have at least two of each. Gunsight angles, positions from which others can strike back at you. Sizing up opponents without seeming to do so. Trying to ferret out intent by reading body cues alone. The pacing here is flawless, the prose punchy, the turns twisty, and the ending climatic if just a tad predictable. This is a thriller sure to appeal to a Hollywood producer and sure to bring out droves of stage mothers eying the role of Julie Getty. A fine nail-biting read. Tale of a government hit man B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com Diana Morgan, who brought The New Pretenders, with its cast of 25 and a 12 piece orchestra, to the OTOW stage nine years ago, is coming out of retirement. Diana will co-produce and direct, in conjunction with assistant director Larry Wilver, the 2013 edition of TNP The Lions Club In last weeks coverage of the Memorial Day observation sponsored by the OTOW Lions Club, it was stated that Kenneth Colen, assisted by Lion President John Johnson, placed the Memorial Wreath before the audience. The statement should have read that Robert Colen and Lion Steve Snowman placed the wreath. Please accept my apology for this error. OTOW HAPPENINGS saying, I have a day job thats very serious, second in command. He says he spends extra hours to get out and talk to people. He added, I agree that experience matters, but youre not electing a deputy sheriff. Youre electing a sheriff, somebody to be at the top of the agency. Ive been a chief of staff since 2005. Sheriff Dean chose to have three chiefs of staff; I wouldnt do it the same way. I would do things differently, but I would give Sheriff Dean credit for a lot of the good things that he brought from a business and efficiency point of view. Talking about the turnover issue, Kuhn said, We actually track turnover. We measure less than 1 percent turnover at the agency; for the southeast region of the United States, the average is 3 percent. He also talked about the sheriffs budget, which is $68 million. Four years ago it was $77 million. You dont develop a budget in a vacuum. The sheriff doesnt set his own budget. He has to work hand in hand with the county commissioners in setting that budget. We are a county thats been hit harder than some counties around us the sheriffs budget is tied to property values. Speaking about manpower, Kuhn said, Even though we have fewer deputies than some of the surrounding counties, our crime rate is half the statewide average. Our crime clearance rate is twice the statewide average. We do not have a broken agency. We have an agency that has been applauded by the governors office, we have an agency that is among the very best not just in Florida but in the United States. I would stack our people up against anyone. Kuhn addressed his background, being born and raised in Marion County. He graduated from the University of Florida law school, and came out as a prosecutor. He became general counsel in 2005. I went back and became a sworn law enforcement officer. I crawled on my belly, I shot, I ended up top shot in the class, but I also graduated top of my class in recruit school. I understand what it takes to be the sheriff. For three budget cycles Ive been working with the County Commission, trying to develop a budget that meets the needs of the citizens in the community but at the same time balances the need for public safety. He said that he doesnt disagree with Blair that over time were going to have to eliminate officials and put boots on the ground. He said that two captains retired recently. One was on the road and we created two deputies to replace the captain, and one was in the jail. That posiSHERIFF CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 tion was eliminated and we created two line level employees. He closed by saying that You just dont want a good cop, you want someone who understands that weve got a lot of good cops. Im proud of what they do, but executive leadership and what it takes to run the agency, I believe I have that skill set. The primary election is Aug. 14. Only Republicans may vote in the GOP race for sheriff, since there are opponents for the general election. mary in August.

The winning candidates in the Aug. 14 primary election will advance to the general election on Nov. 6. Sheriff hopefuls stress qualifications BY JIM CLARK Editor If any people had any doubt that the race for Marion County Sheriff hadnt gotten fully under way, a visit to the State Road 200 Coalition meeting Monday might have changed their minds. Republican candidates Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn each presented a different assessment of qualifications needed to be the countys top law enforcement officer. Blair, speaking first, retired after 35 years with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, saying he was the longest serving deputy in the history of the organization. He said that he worked his way through the ranks, eventually becoming major of special investigations. He held up a color-coded chart that showed that only two counties in Florida have a sheriff who did not come up through the ranks. One is Union County, the other is Marion County. Sheriff Ed Dean was an attorney when originally appointed to the position. Blair noted that it takes five years of experience for a deputy to become a detective, five years to be a sergeant, 10 years to be a lieutenant, but then we look at the sheriff. I can tell you that I am the only candidate in this race with actual law enforcement experience. Blair said the Sheriffs Office is top heavy. My biggest concern is that the organization is a bureaucratic empire. He said the state requires one supervisor for every six deputies, but in Marion County its one for every 3.5 deputies. Our deputies are being supervised twice as much. Blair added, We rank in the bottom 10 for deputy sheriffs serving you every day. We rank in the bottom 10 for starting salaries for deputy sheriffs. We are losing good qualified deputy sheriffs. He added that 44 left the agency since the first of the year, four by retirement, and the others just left. We must put more boots on the ground. He said that the concern used to be Miami moving north, now its Orlando moving north. Without those boots on the ground, were Chris BlairDan Kuhn West Port graduation West Port High School graduate Mariah Fernandez adjusts her cap prior to graduation Friday morning. West Port High School graduates Kevin Jones and Cassie Mrod share a joke before graduation ceremonies began Friday morning. The phone was later collected by school officials they also took car keys and returned to graduates after the ceremony. Graduation was originally scheduled for Thursday night, but the days rain forced the postponement of the outdoor ceremony on the schools football field. That failed to dampen the ethusiasm of those who received their diplomas. going to be in serious trouble. He criticized Kuhn, who holds the position of undersheriff, for 17 promotions when he announced his candidacy. We are going up, we should be going down. Under my command we will have one chief of staff, not three. We will not have an undersheriff. We must move that money down. We must reallocate our manpower and resources. He concluded, It is the peoples choice, but make sure that we put experience where it needs to be. Kuhn then addressed the crowd, PLEASESEESHERIFF PAGE4 BY JIM CLARK Editor Two commercial establishments along the State Road 200 corridor were burglarized last week. On the morning of June 7, workers at Divine Providence in the 8800 block discovered that the store had been illegally entered through side doors and money and a cell phone were taken. The day before, workers arriving at the Oasis Restaurant in the 7600 block discovered that the establishment had been entered and cash taken. The entry was from the front and was made by breaking glass. Two commercial establishments along 200 corridor burglarized BY JIM CLARK Editor Some of the political races are over before they start. Qualifying ended Friday for the upcoming local election cycle, and several candidates will face no opposition when voters go to the polls in August and November. County Commissioner Charlie Stone decided this year to leave the county governing body and make a run for state representative in District 22. Its already been successful as he faces no opposition and will go to Tallahassee next January. In county races, Tax Collector George Albright, Clerk of the Circuit Court David Ellspermann and Property Appraiser Villie Smith, all Republicans, drew no opposition and are automatically re-elected. In addition to Stone, Dennis Baxley and Marlene H. OToole have been re-elected to the Florida House, and Charlie Dean has been re-elected to the Florida Senate. In other county races, Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn will square off in the Republic primary Aug. 14 for sheriff, with the winner facing Bernie DeCastro, Constitution Party, and Judson Cauthen Spence Jr., write-in, in the general election. Only Republicans may vote in the priStone elected state rep without foe for SW area Stone PLEASESEECANDIDATES PAGE4 Marions Most Wanted Douglas Aldridge 43, felony violation of probation fraud-credit card, grand theft less than $5,000, possession of hydrocodone. Kathryn Chase 45, felony violation of probation burglary of a dwelling. Marcus McCloud 43, felony bench warrant, failure to appear status conference driving while license revoked as habitual offender. Marvin McHellion 26, felony violation of probation possession of cocaine. Maronda Reed 22, violation of probation warrant for retail theft. Clinton Yancey 22, felony bench warrant, failure to appear status conference possession of cocaine. Marion County Sheriffs Office just accepted the first of 36 police vehicles, scheduled to arrive in the next two months. The new vehicles will replace aging patrol vehicles. The American-built Fords are the latest in law enforcement auto technology. These new vehicles were selected for handling and performance. The Police Interceptor sedan allwheel drive has the 3.5L V6 eco-boost engine. It was described as being a game-changer by one of the deputies. Although this engine boasts 365 horsepower, it is estimated to provide at least a 20 percent increase in our current fuel mileage, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer. The increased fuel mileage could result in a savings of an estimated $500,000+ per year once the entire fleet has been upgraded, Cochran added. Also, the vehicles will have back-up sensors that will warn officers when they are near anything when the vehicle is in reverse. In FY 2009-2010, the Board of County Commission earmarked $442,000 for the purchase of replacement Patrol vehicles, per the Sheriffs request. Last FY 2010-2011, the Sheriff asked and received approval that all returned funds in the amount of Sheriffs Office receiving new vehicles $2,154,107 in the MSTU budget and $702,515 in county-wide funds also be earmarked for replacement vehicles. Using the $442,000 from FY 20092010, the agency was able to order 14 Police Interceptor sedans and 2 Ford Police Interceptor SUV models. Of those vehicles ordered, 1 sedan and 1 SUV will be outfitted for use by the K-9 Unit and will allow them to test which one will be a best fit for the unit. The Sheriffs Office is receiving vehicles on a regular schedule, about 4-5 Police Interceptors each week. So, there should be between 60-70 new vehicles in the next few months. Since these are brand new vehicle models, they are custom building everything we are adding to the vehicles. The Sheriffs Office is installing radios and computers, and will have striping/decals done. The Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Team arrested Travis S. Rath of Ocala and the 25 year-old suspect will now face numerous charges. Rath was arrested at 5 p.m., Monday, June 11, along Southwest 27th Avenue, Ocala. While putting handcuffs on Rath, drug agents seized $39,520 in cash, 25 pounds of packaged marijuana that has a value of $57,000 and two assault rifles. Rath is charged with: Armed trafficking in marijuana Cultivation of marijuana Possession of a firearm during a felony Possession of paraphernalia 3 counts of sale and possession of marijuana If you know anything about Raths activities, call Crime Stoppers at 352-3687867.
