Alberto Perez 29, felony bench warrant bond revoked by court, count 1, driving while license revoked as habitual offender; count 2, DUI impairment. Jitkeisha Rachel 24, felony criminal use of personal identification information. Deputies arrested two local men on charges of retail grand theft after an incident at Walmart. According to the report, William John Bassete Smith Jr., 32, of Southwest 186th Court, allegedly tried to return some items to the service desk, including a pre-paid cell phone, which was never activated, razors, a calculator, a mag light, and other items. The store refused the refund and the man left the store, activating the merchandise alarm. He went to a car which had another man in it, and they left the area together. The tag number was reported to deputies, and a deputy said he knew where it might be located. Officials went to the home. After questioning Smith and Jason Scott OMara, 31, deputies placed both under arrest for retail grand theft. A 23-year-old Ocala man was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped on State Road 40 in the 4400 block for failing to stay in a single lane and stopping for a red light in the middle of an intersection. When the deputy activated his lights, the car turned into a gas station and struck a pole, kept going and stopped by the building. The driver, Domingo Reyes, 23, of Northwest Gainesville Road, got out of the car, despite being tol to remain with the car, and walked toward the deputy, where he had to be subdued. He was then arrested and taken to jail, and the Ocala Police Department investigated the accident because of the pole being struck. A homeless man, Glen Walter Morgan, 52, was arrested for trespass after warning at the Kangaroo Station on State Road 200 near 60th Avenue. Pair accused of retail grand theft at Walmart Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives arrested Richard L. Drake, of Summerfield and charged the 43 year-old in a double shooting killing one man. The charges are: One count of Murder One count of Attempted Murder One count of Grand Theft Auto Just after noon, Tuesday, June 19, 2012 deputies arrived at 9778 S.E. 164th Place, Summerfield. They quickly found David Walsh, 19, lying on the floor of the kitchen. Walsh was dead. It appeared he had been shot multiple times. While conducting a search of the backyard of the property, a deputy located Ethan Worthington, 19, who was suffering after being shot multiple times. Worthington was taken to the hospital. Witnesses led detectives to identify Drake as a person of interest. Drake, reportedly, left the scene in Walshs Chevy Impala. About seven hours later, deputies found Drake in Fort McCoy. Drake was arrested and transported to the jail without incident. Drake was being held with no bond. Summerfield man faces murder charge On June 1, Captain Gerard Stroh officially retired from the Friendship Volunteer Fire Department (FVFD) and Marion County Fire Rescue Station 21. He started as a volunteer with this department in January 1997 after coming to Ocala from New York where he had also served as a firefighter. He arrived and took a leadership position when FVFD was previously housed on S.R. 200 in a building that had been used for processing meat. He witnessed many changes within this station which finally resulted in the transition into our new Station 21 Friendship building at Southwest 90th Street. He facilitated several major changes that advanced the services to the local community. During his tenure, the volunteers purchased Grass 521, received the new Fire Engine 521, maintained and operated Grass 521 and helped establish Rehab 21 truck which provides aide and supplies to firefighters working long hours on calls. Over Jerrys career span, he has dedicated his time and responded to countless emergency calls.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he British mania for all things Gypsy has resulted in a blockbuster reality series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and four books on the subject. The first to reach America is Gypsy Boy, a grim yet often funny look at Romany lifestyle. Mikey Walsh, a pseudonym because a price is still on his head, is born into a clan of bare-knuckle fighters. His own father is reputed to be a Black Knight of raging firepower. Unfortunately for Mikey he is slightly built and has no interest in the blood sport. That means that from a very tender age he is beaten without letup in order to turn him into a champion, which from the start is a lost cause. He lacks the gene that makes Gypsy men born brawlers who end all festive occasions like weddings in violence. Mikeys salvation lies in his gentler mother and his constant companion older sister Frankie. And between horrible thrashings theres much to enjoy in this coming-of-age memoir. There is, for instance, Gypsy bad taste in fashion like velour tracksuits and stilettos with a tiny gold scale model of the Eiffel Tower welded into each heel. More comedy is invoked when Mikey tags along on some hilarious shoplifting trips with a kleptomaniac aunt who stuffs piles of merchandise under her fur coat. Along the way Walsh dispels myths such as Gypsy curses. There are none, and the notion that Gypsies are poor is false as well. Far from it, he says. Their trailer encampments are well furnished and unhealthy food such as fried take-out is plentiful. Moreover, many have luxury cars. But they shun the outside world, refusing to send their children to school unless forced to. Highly insulated, Gypsies as a whole suspect all outsiders. Despite the brutal circumstances of his childhood, which included sexual abuse from an uncle, Walsh often waxes nostalgic about the life he was forced to leave at age 15, knowing that custom dictated he could never return once he left. In London he finds himself and comes out of the closet. When his father learns hes gay, he puts a bounty on his head. Still, the author concludes by saying I wouldnt change my life. I am proud of my race, and what I am. You can take the boy away from the Gypsies, but you cant take the Gypsy out of the boy.

Holling led the CCI3 division from beginning to end riding Connie Hollings eight-year-old Trakehner gelding Downtown Harrison. Of the initial 18 combinations in the division, 12 completed the event which concluded with the show jumping phase. This is an Ocala rider, Ocala horse and Ocala trainer, said Jons wife, Jenn Holling. Holling, entering the arena last, had two rails in hand and he used them both. An early knock down at the second fence, a vertical, was followed by another vertical down at number five. Holling managed to leave the rest of the jumps in their cups, adding eight faults to his score for a total of 58.8, and clinching victory in his horses three-star debut. The CIC3 division was won by Karen OConnor of the United States. It was a clean sweep for the USA, with OConnor also winning the CCI2 division and fellow American Buck Davidson winning the CCI1 division. Jon Holling has served eventing in a variety of capacities, including as a four-star rider, a well respected coach, an event organizer, and a leader on various committees and organizations including as Chair of the USEAs Professional Horsemans Council. Holling is originally from Wisconsin and now he and his wife, Jenn, and son Caiden reside at Willow Run in Ocala.

Know what your manual says about (or at least know where it explains) Exposure Compensation, Bracketing, Histograms, White Balance, and Depth of Field. If you do not understand what the manual is telling you, senior club members will help you. You must have your manual or a book dedicated to your camera and know where to look for the information. Please do not expect the senior photographers to be familiar with your camera. They will be able to look at your manual and explain what it says to you but they should not be expected to look up the material for you. For more Information about the Oak Run Photography Club please see our blog at orphotoclub.blogspot.com/. Oak Run Travel Wow! That was what our travelers said about the production of New York Nights at the Show Palace on June 10. The cast performed just as you would expect to see on Broadway. Everyone wanted more of the classical pop music from those beautiful voices! The Nov. 16 tour to Rediscovering Real Florida with Eleanor and Rich Feltenburger as hosts and also Wonders of Winter Park and Treasures of Tiffany on Nov. 30 with Rudy and Delores Frey as hosts have turned out to be very popular. As a result we will be doing both of them again in 2013 so be on the lookout for the sale dates in the Oak Run Travel brochure. A number of our trips this year have been sell-outs with a wait list. Sometimes when we get enough on the list we can get another bus going so never be reluctant to get on the wait list for any trip. It helps us to help you take the trips you really like. Of course, even without another bus you can often still make the trip due to someone having to cancel. So always get on the wait list, you have 2 good reasons to do so. Royal Oaks Mens GolfIts good to be back in action again after two successive weeks of cancellations due to rain. Needless to say, we needed the rain more than the golf at this time, so not too many complained about the wet weather. I might add it really greened up the golf course. The game on June 15 was the usual three best net. Thirty seven players participated, which is good considering the time of year. And the winners were First with a 194, Bill Staiger, George Gariepy, John ONeill, and Paul Valois; Second with a 195, Dick Blackburn, Bob Gildea, and Duke Slayton. Third was a tie between three teams with a score of 200. These were Emmett Dowling, Charlie Elder, Sam Owens, and Fred West; Hal Loomis, Ed Simnowitz, Tom Ducz, and Larry Soine; and Dale Wurzburger, Virgil Hein, Chuck Engel, and Tom Morris Closest to the pin were Bill Start, Mickey Klein, John Wargo, and Mike Madill. A beautiful day on a good golf course what more could one ask for. See you next week.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, June 12, we played our Flag Tournament in honor of Flag Day. Each player was given a small flag. On each flag was the number of strokes the player could make before planting her flag in the ground. That number of strokes was the course par of 72 plus the players handicap. Thus someone with a handicap of 25 would plant their flag after taking 97 strokes (72+25). The winners were: 1st PlaceJT Lemasters whose flag made it back to the First Hole by the Green!, 2nd PlaceSylvia Zappia, 3rd PlaceSalita Timmermeyer, 4th PlaceCarolyn Collins. All three of these members also finished 18 holes and made it back to the fairway of the first hole! Nice play ladies!! Tied for 5th place by holing their ball on the 18th hole were Maureen Edwards, Judy Klein, Sheila Adams, and Beverly Lassiter. Patty Dougherty was Closest to the Pin. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 14 we played Tee to Green and 1/2 handicap. There were only 8 players. Everybody seems to be away, so we had only three winners. Tied in first Sam Timmermeyer and BJ Lassiter, third Rae Stover. We hope to have a better turn out next week. Mr. Codys Corner Id really like to know if golfers shouldnt wear two pair of pants.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 N o one can ever accuse me of being a golfer. I have played one round of golf in my life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I mention it was a nine-hole course? That was back when I was 16 and my dad tried to teach me on a simple little course at a place called Mystic Islands, New Jersey. My dad was good at a lot of things, but he didnt succeed at this one, although it probably wasnt his fault. Thats why Ive grown up rarely watching golf on television, except for the majors and the TPC at Sawgrass, which I personally attended once. Last weekend we had a major, the U.S. Open, played somewhere near San Francisco on the West Coast. The way the golfers played, it didnt seem like a major. No one was under par. If I want to watch a bunch of golfers who cant break par, I can go sit out near the 18th hole at the Municipal Golf Course in Ocala. Turning on the U.S. Open this year was like turning on the Super Bowl, and instead getting a Pop Warner game. I could just envision golfers all over the country saying, I can do that. This tournament ends on Fathers Day, the third Sunday in June. Whats the matter? Couldnt they find a place where June means summer weather? Players were wearing sweatshirts and other paraphernalia to keep warm. On Sunday, a sea fog was rolling in off the Pacific to give the golfers just another distraction. Of course, when I bothered to listen, the commentators were gushing positives about the course, but I would imagine the USGA would make sure they were never heard from again if they dared to criticize anything. There also seems to be some sort of controversy surrounding Johnny Miller, who was commenting for NBC. Im not sure why, but then again I try not to listen too much to the analysts, who are usually wrong. One of the big stories over the weekend was about a 17-year-old kid from California, wearing a University of Texas shirt, who was actually in contention. He faded on Sunday and didnt even end up as the low amateur. Then there was Tiger Woods, who was in the lead briefly during the first two days, then crashed and burned on the weekend. When they interviewed Woods after Sundays round, he said that there were a lot of positives he could take away from his failure to win another major. Could have fooled me. Some guy named Webb Simpson won the tournament. It finished on Sunday after 10 p.m., and, well, when you get up before sunrise thats well past bedtime. I saw a tape Monday of the posttournament interview, which was crashed by someone. As the intruder was being hauled away, Simpson commented, Hope you enjoy the jail cell, buddy. At least this guy Simpson had a good sense of humor. So what comes next? Why, its the British Open, which is usually played on a course thats a code enforcement officers dream, one with knee-high weeds. Would it be too much to ask that the Brits play this tourney on a course that owns a lawn mower? Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

W eve all been hearing a lot lately about voter purges, where the state is trying to make sure that all voters are legitimately registered and are American citizens qualified to vote. For some reason, some people think this is a bad thing. They dont see to care that some votes are being cast illegally. It comes back to that old clich: What part of the word illegal dont you understand? Yes, there have been a few mistakes. But as far as we know, these mistakes have been caught and repaired, so no legal voter is being denied the right to cast a ballot. But in the spirit of offering solutions, weve come up with one that should satisfy all the people: Purge the voting rolls of all voters after the election in November. Thats right, get rid of everybody. Make everyone reregister to vote starting in January, making them prove that they are American citizens. That would clear the voting rolls of those who are ineligible. It would also clear the rolls of those who registered years ago but dont bother to vote. Chances are, they wouldnt take the time to go back and register again. Think back to recent elections. In some cases the turnout is less than 20 percent of registered voters. If its around 35 percent, its considered an average turnout. If its 50 percent or higher, its a record-setting turnout. Well, what about the 50 percent or more who dont turn out? If they werent on the voter rolls, it would speed up time at the polls, make sure that the voters are legal, and maybe the turnouts would be around 80 or 90 percent or so. At one time, there was a rule that if you didnt vote for a certain amount of time, your name was automatically purged. We always thought that was a good rule. But for some reason it no longer exists, and now the names of those who dont vote are on the list, gathering dust, so to speak. So lets start over with a clean slate of voters, so those who are eligible to vote have an easier time of it, and those who are ineligible or too lazy to vote can just stay home where theyll usually complain about who gets elected. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Purge everyone and start from scratch Was that really a major golf event? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Walking in Oak RunPlease let me offer a walkers perspective to the Oak Run Boulevard controversy and a possible solution which would satisfy both walkers and motorists. I have lived in Oak Run for seven happy years. We chose this community because all the recreational facilities are within waking distance although you cannot access them without traversing the boulevard. Also, the close proximity to stores and medical facilities that are on S.R. 200 where there are sidewalks. We are a one-car family, electing not to degradate our environment with unnecessary use of polluting vehicles. It is impossible to leave my neighborhood and get to Palm Grove for the exercise room or classes offered almost daily at the auditorium without navigating the boulevard. The Island Club and the swimming pools also require a trip on the beautiful road. To deny me access to activities to maintain my health which I, like all others pay for in my amenities fee, is unfair. To deny me access to my doctors, dentists or lab facilities across 200 on days I do not have a car is unconscionable. I walk where I need to go. Most drivers put on their signals and move over to the next lane. When drivers are not able or unwilling to share the road, I move quickly onto the grass. The newly posted signs are facing traffic. They say walking here is prohibited. Walking the correct way facing traffic you do not see the signs, so I am not in violation. Motorists, please move over if you are able. No one wants to deliberately hurt another resident. A solution that would please both camps and also add to Mr. Ghumanns living legacy would be to construct an asphalt walking path parallel to the boulevard. It would be a gift to the residents reminiscent of OTOWs Mr. Colens development of Shalom Park on Southwest 80th Avenue. Until then, fellow walkers, pay attention, be alert to the traffic we face. Be prepared to move out of the way of anyone who may not see you on the back roads as well as on our lovely boulevard. Peggy Gunter Oak RunBills and taxesHave you looked closely, at a copy of any of your bills, lately? One of my bills had an increase, and I decided to check it out. What I discover during that perusal was astonishing. There are ten, yes 10 separate taxes on the bill. They are the following amounts: .98,1.14, .66, .43, .11, .21, .22, .18, .50, 1.07. No big deal. The total is only $5.40 per bill, $5.50 per calculator. This is how they are nickel and diming us to death. The talk is now of a government charge on every deposit, and withdrawal to your bank account. Where, or when does it end? Will they ever run out of ideas as to where to pile on another tax? One other thought. How, much does it cost to process an .11 tax? Printing material, shipping, handling, manpower, fuel, equipment, etc.? These things boggle the mind. When is an insatiable government satiated? Next month there may be 12 taxes on the bill. Mean to keep an eye on that one. Other bills have taxes, they are fewer in number. TAX, TAX, TAX. We need a tax anthem, anyone have a ditty in their portfolio? D.I. Larson Ocala READER OPINIONS INVITED The South Marion Citizen is looking for volunteer correspondents for the following areas: Palm Cay, Pine Run, Spruce Creek North, Spruce Creek Preserve. If interested, please contact the editor. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MRMC and Its supportersIm constantly reading about what people want to do to Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC), and not one of them knows what they are talking about. The only person making any sense, other than the professionals who are managing the hospital, has been Kulbar Ghumman. Hes been on the board long enough, and has the experience, to discuss the hospitals needs intelligently. Ive said it before and Ill say it here again, lawyers make very poor board members on any board. Ive attended enough MRMC board meetings to hear them speak with little in a positive nature. Theres no one on the board with a hospital management background, and that includes doctors. They would be the last to be selected, because in the back of their minds, their own interests come first. Plus, just because a person owns a business doesnt make them an authority on hospitals. During the few times Ive spoken at the hospital board meetings, I mentioned that in years past, I audited whats now MRMC, so many time Ive forgotten the number. Many years ago when I was a member of the Florida Hospital Association as well as the Florida Osteopathic Hospital Association, and it was an understanding, that doctors and lawyers were not the best hospital board members. I dont know about Indian chiefs, maybe we should check with the Seminoles.

In addition, Ive been a Blue Cross and Medicare fraud, auditor, Executive Director of the Florida Nursing Home Association, member of the Florida Hospital Accountants Association, Secretary of the Eastern division of the Florida Hospital Association and finally Assistant Administrator of Ormond Beach Memorial Hospital for Finance and Development, when it first opened. I also lobbied the Florida Legislature, when then State Senator Lawton Chiles sponsored my three bills in the State Senate, and they all passed both houses. Im not lobbying to get on the MRMC board, but at least I could help the professionals who know how a hospital should be run. Now, for the problem, and Ive addressed it before in the newspaper and at MRMC board meetings. If the hospital wants to raise funds it should be through a 1/2 cent sales tax. A one (1) mill tax on property will not pass. You must realize, that a great portion of the Marion County population are retirees, and theyre not going to hold still for a one (1) mill increase on their property taxes, I know I wont. A sales tax of 1/2 of one percent is the most fair, as all the people of Marion County should pay their fair share. The one (1) mill issue is doomed to failure so forget it now before its too late and try the logical approach. There are those who will say the sales tax will not provide enough money for MRMC, and it will have to be distributed to other areas as well. Now, thats where lawyers come into play. The sales tax should be for MRMC only. As an afterthought, all totaled, Ive lived in this north central Florida area for over 30 years and it seems the civic leaders still dont get it. Bill Ford Ocala Off the messageThe Republicans are experts at taking the president off message and changing the subject to their interests in what they believe and what they want to talk about. Why does the president allow the Repub-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 licans to frame and control the issues of the day in their talking points and not allow him to talk about job creation. Please, Mr. President, dont just talk about jobs for Americans but explain day after day how to put the unemployed back to work with programs that help our countries workforce. Have the Democrats in the House and Senate submit bills to work on the infrastructure, the highways, the bridges, the energy crisis, the water crisis, the reforestation of our national parks just to name a few. If you are forceful enough and talk about jobs on a daily basis, the voting public may just begin to believe you. When you allow the Republicans to set the issues that they want you to talk about, you lose. The American people are not interested in your sidebar discussions with the Republicans unless they result in jobs for the people. This is the issue of the day. Dont get distracted with the lies from the far right. Yes you must point these falsehoods out but let the voting public know to relate the fact that these lies about you are just a distraction to change the subject. You made a mistake in your first year in office by trying to work with the hateful leadership of the Republican party but they have made their message clear. Now it is time to make your message clear and let the Republicans know that their anti-American ideas have not worked in the past and you are not going to listen to their garbage now. You are the only one who was elected president in the last election and if you want to keep your job to take care of the people, you must put America back to work.

He currently works advising the government on logistics and planning. Harriets second son, Lloyd, attended Dowling University and became a successful Social Studies teacher. Unfortunately, Lloyd passed away in 2010. During the Korean War, Harriet and Sid got a divorce. Moving back to Massapequa, she met her next door neighbor, Carl Scarpino. Carl and Harriet were soon married and Carl became like a father to the two boys. He always had time to nurture and love them, making sure they had their bar mitzvahs, graduations and other milestones of life celebrated in style. While Carl worked at Republic Aviation, Harriet opened her own gift and novelty store. She had majored in art at the University of Syracuse, so the shop was just an extension of her talents. She specialized in wholesale retail and party plans. When her business was struck by fire, she decided it was time to retire. Harriet had always been active in politics. She was first inspired by Harry Truman and worked on his campaign. She liked the mans straight forward style and honesty. It was a style she adopted as her own and has developed and maintained through out her life. Since that time, she has worked locally and nationally on every campaign for the Democratic Party. She takes pride in the fact that she was able to change the political affiliation of her home town, Massapequa. When first she moved back there, the Democrats were 20 percent of the voters while the Republicans were 80 percent. Because of her activism, by the time she left, it was exactly the opposite. Most admired in Harriets eyes as presidents were John Kennedy and Jimmy Carter. She states that history will prove Jimmy Carter was one of our greatest presidents. When asked what she admired both about the two men she answered, Their youth; their love of people and feeling for the people. They cared about the man on the street. Early on in her retirement, when Cherrywood was in its infancy, Harriet worked with the On Top of the World Democratic Club. This was due to her husband Carls encouragement. Before long, as more and more people moved into our community, Harriet was urged by the Party to start a Democratic Club here in Cherrywood. Eagerly Harriet accepted the challenge and began by serving refreshments at the meetings. She compared it to entertaining in her own home. If you came to my house, I would serve you food so I did the same at our meetings. The hallmarks of her meetings were that there would be no smears allowed and all meetings would be open. She believes that people must have open minds and listen to all sides of an argument to be well informed. Harriet had to fight some in the Democratic Organization on these points but her indomitable spirit won out. She credits the growth of the party to these policies. Since its inception, Harriet has been the enthusiastic and energetic president of the Democratic Club. Undaunted by the passing of her husband nearly 12 years ago, she has continued on for these many years. In October of last year, Harriet began experiencing health problems of her own. Currently she is recovering at TimberRidge. Her good friend Ken Beech has been assisting her by providing support and encouragement. Ken is the vice president of the club, and maintains Harriets high standard of communication and leadership in her absence. In spite of her hardships and illness, Harriet is still a feisty, humorous, and lovely woman with an unbeatable spirit. She loves life and people; easily cultivating friends of all political bents and views. She still laughs easily and often. When asked what she considered the most important thing in life was she replied emphatically, Voting! Harriet continued by stating, Voting is a priceless right no matter whether youre Democrat, Republican or Independent! It is a privilege. In addition to her work with the Democratic Club and Democrat Party, Harriet served for 11 years on the 200 Coalition. When she was active there used to be more than 100 members but participation has dwindled since that time. This is a disappointment to Harriet. On a personal note, your correspondent interviewed Harriet at TimberRidge. She expressed her heartfelt gratitude to all of her friends and neighbors for their support; phone calls; visits and prayers. Please thank all the wonderful people who have called and sent cards, she told me. She has on her bed a stuffed elephant, given to her by some of her Republican friends of which she has many. With her unique personality; unflinching determination and fantastic sense of humor, Harriet is indeed an asset to Cherrywood. We wish her a speedy and complete recovery.From Your Reporter I would like to take a moment to send out a special thank you to two individuals who contributed to this weeks column. Ken Beech accompanied me to TimberRidge for the interview with Harriet Scarpino (See Spotlight) and was a great help. Next a special Thanks to Bobbie Letendre for suggesting a Welcoming Committee for Cherrywood. (See article Newcomers to Cherrywood above). Good ideas are always welcome and I appreciate your thoughtful input.

neighbors to hear some top quality professional and amateur musicians do their thing. If youve never been to an Accordion Club session, you are invited to come on out and see for yourself how much fun it is. Put on your dancing shoes; grab some snacks, beverages and your friends; and then plan for an evening of pure enjoyment. Bingo Record SetBingo night at Cherrywood is full of fast paced excitement and friendly fellowship. Last Thursday night, during one of the special games, there were seven winners; the most that have ever won a single game. When they all yelled Bingo! at the same time, there was a mixture of laughter and surprise. There were so many that all of the individual winners had to stand up to be recognized while their cards were verified. As always it was a fun time for the 70 or more people that showed up. The crowd is a little smaller during the summer months when our snow birds are gone but Bingo still rates high on the entertainment meter for all the participants. Thanks to our volunteers for all their hard work and for making Thursday night Bingo at Cherrywood the best place to have fun; excitement and friendship. Crochet & Knitting ClubMembers continue to work on various projects to be distributed to charities. We dont take a summer break, so donations are always appreciated. If you have yarn, polyester stuffing for toys, books, or other supplies that you no longer need, please consider donating them for our projects. These items can be dropped off any time at the clubhouse in Geris office, or wed love to meet and thank you, so come to our regular meeting time on Friday between 1 and 3 p.m. At present our project is creating a Granny Square afghan to be raffled off at the craft show in Cherrywood to be held in October. Several members are participating by making various colorful squares which will be assembled and completed by member Stevie Pickrell. Proceeds will go to a local childrens charity, as yet to be determined. If youd like to learn to crochet or knit, we have ladies who are very willing to teach. It is a rewarding hobby and keeps your mind and hands busy. You are invited to come out and observe our group any Friday. Theres always a pot of coffee and yummy goodies to share. Article provided by Edna Fazio Newcomers to CherrywoodAre you new to Cherrywood? You arent alone. We average between two to five new families every month moving into our community and we want to welcome you. We have a new committee that would like to personally invite you to attend the activities; to give you information about some of the many services here in Marion County and to let you know that you are a welcome addition to Cherrywood.

Free popcorn and lemonade are provided but if you have a preferred beverage and/or snack, bring it along. 7 p.m. is show time and its free so come a little early to insure you get a great seat.

Blood Drive Coming On July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., the bloodmobile will be parked outside the clubhouse to take your donations of life giving blood. Its quick and easy to give blood in a sterile atmosphere surrounded by professionals who can walk you through the process step by step. First time donors are especially welcome and our repeat givers are greatly appreciated. On a personal note, dont let me lose my bet. We desperately need someone to volunteer to handle the blood donation program here at Cherrywood. This requires only a few hours of your time every couple of months to keep our blood donations flowing smoothly. I made a bet with Geri that one or two of our residents would step up and take over this worthwhile project before July 12. Im counting on the good hearted people who make up Cherrywood to jump in take charge. Call Geri today and volunteer. Flu Shots Flu Shots will be available in the clubhouse in September and October this year. The details and dates are being worked out so keep an eye on this column and your Chirp Newsletter. We want to make it convenient and easy to be healthy so you can enjoy all of the activities we have to offer. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Harriet Scarpino, President of the Democratic Club of Cherrywood. Harriet has lived in Cherrywood for 16 years and was one of the first residents in our community. She is a native of Long Island and Massapequa, New York. She has a sister Doris who currently lives in South Orange, New Jersey. Another sister, Sylvia, is deceased. During the Second World War, as a young woman, she worked for the Silver Vogue Corp. Origi-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com S peaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just How a person can ruin a perfectly good day O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE11 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Harriet and Ken Scarpino.

For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.

Continue to wait until more is available before acting on that career move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You continue on an upbeat cycle, and with that strong Taurean energy you should see favorable results from your hard work. A pleasant surprise awaits you in your private life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A misunderstanding needs more time to be worked out. Dont give up on it just yet. Remain open to providing explanations, if called for. Another friend offers good advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Fast action can correct a seemingly minor problem that has taken on some unexpectedly difficult aspects. Stay with it until its resolved. News on a more positive note is due soon. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Some snags could cause delays in those plans youre eager to see put into operation. But be patient. The Clever Cat will soon have good reason to celebrate a job well done. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let that Virgan sensitivity dissuade you from being the hardheaded realist you should be at this time. Your goals are in sight. Stay focused on them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A more positive aspect opens up, allowing you to make some important changes in a personal situation. Remember to seek balance and avoid extremes as you proceed. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good week to get out and enjoy the fine times you missed while you were so deep in those workaday projects. Be sure to share it with that special person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Work and play are in balance this week. However, expect news that could tip things toward the workplace for quite a while. But all to a good end. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youre more productive on the job than you have been in some time. Thats good. But be careful not to overlook some situations developing in your private life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been doing a lot for others (as usual). But now its time to focus on your needs, including finally going on that long-delayed trip youve been hoping to make. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Its all smoothly going on twixt you and that very special person in your life. But a colleague causes some disruption on the job that you might be called on to help settle. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to the needs of others. But youre no pushover. You would make a fine teacher, psychologist or minister. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure 000BSPK 000BMDN W i s d o Family Medicine Wisdo is Welcoming NEW PATIENTS!

RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 I ts hot and humid. We dont need the calendar to tell us that summer started this last Wednesday. Grab a cool one, take a seat and enjoy some hot stories. Banded Just before the end to the school year, the teacher had opened the band room windows to get some needed ventilation when a large insect flew into the room. The students tried to ignore the buzzing intruder, but eventually one student, Tommy, could stand it no more. He rolled up his music book and swatted the insect and then stomped on it to ensure its fate. Is it a bee, another student asked. Nope, Tommy replied. Bee flat. For the birdsOne evening an avid bird watcher stood in his backyard and heard an owl hoot. So he thought hed give a hoot back. To his surprise and delight the bird hooted again. The next night the same scenario occurred. All summer, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife, had a chat with her next-door neighbor. My husband spends his nights calling to owls, the wife commented. Thats odd, the neighbor replied. So does my husband. Air or heir? Married life seemed to have worn him down, so he went to his doctor for a check-up. Theres nothing radically wrong with you, the doctor said after a thorough examination, all you need is a little sun and air. Yes, I suppose youre right, said the patient, but my wifes dead set against having any children. SummertimeComputer geeks will not be competing in this years summer Olympics in London because the Olympic committee refused to add a floppy discus competition. Surfing must be a religion to some kids; they do it kneeling. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? Summer is the time when it is too hot to do the jobs it was too cold to do in winter. Gulls are named seagulls because if they were by the bay, theyd be bagels. In the winter Joes dog wears his coat, but in the summer he wears his coat and pants. While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. We recently went to a seaside resort for a change and a rest. The maid got the change and hotel got the rest. You say you saw a lot of her this summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Too muchOn their annual summer eating tour, veteran overeaters Mike and Monica were thrilled with the street vendors in Philadelphia, which allowed them to stuff their faces while they waddled from street corner to street corner. Mike, ever the joker, walked backward across Market Street with a hot dog stuck in each ear, commenting that a frank with the works sure sounded good, and thus, didnt hear Monicas anguished cry, Watch out for the hoagie car, Michael.Fractured Summer vacation was near and the teacher was trying to give her class an impression of fractions that would last until school resumed. She told them they could think of fractions at home as well as in school and gave such examples as half a sandwich, a quarter of a pie and tenth part of a dollar. At that point one little boy caught on and proudly contributed, My father came home last night with a fifth.JumpyTom was one of the last patrons to leave the local tavern one summer night, and he took his usual shortcut through the cemetery. It was a very dark night, Enjoy some hot summer stories P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN PAGE17 and, he tumbled into a freshly dug grave. He was not hurt, but the hole was too deep and the ground too soft for him to climb out. He curled up in a corner to wait for daybreak and the arrival of the cemetery crew. He dozed off. The guy who must have been the last to leave the tavern came down the same path, and he too tumbled in. Tom woke up as this new fellow jumped and clawed at the sides, trying futilely to climb out. Finally, Tom said, You know, you cant get out that way. But he did.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Because of this, the Shutter Bugs camera club will be meeting only once a month instead of twice. The next meeting will be in the library of the clubhouse on July 6, the first Friday of the month. The members would like to thank Dan and Joan Welch for their hospitality at our last meeting. They hosted our club for a photo shoot at their home this past week. Their property is adjacent to the pastures where horses and goats graze and we were able to get some very interesting and beautiful photos thanks to them. In addition, we would like to thank Geri for taking the time to show us how to transfer our photos onto the computer and send them to various people. Friday the 15th was a good day for the club and were looking forward to even better things in the future. Grab your camera and join us on July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse for our next field trip or technical instruction. Until fall, we will be meeting on the first Friday of the month.Accordion ClubFrom 5:30 until 9 p.m. on June 27, the music will be echoing through out the clubhouse as our Cherrywood Accordion Club musicians again bring their talent and wide variety of musical instruments to the stage.

Erics parents, Harold and Nancy Scott of Marion Landing, traveled to New York to be a part of the surprise. Also sharing in the celebration were Pastor Erics sister, Lorri Field and her husband Roger and son Jacob, as well as cousin David Gardner and his wife Donna from Canada. Pastor Eric and Deby were taken by surprise; and Eric said, I cant understand how they (his congregation) put it over on us. A video of events highlighting the 20 years of Eric and Debys service was shown, special music written and sung by members of the youth group, and presented to the family were bouquets of flowers to Deby and their daughters, Erin, Sarah, Hannah and Deborah, and basketballs for sons Josiah and Nick. Many thanks were expressed not only to Eric and Deby, but to the children for all the time away from them required by their Dads position as Pastor of Celebration Family Church. Eric and Deby were also presented with a certificate for a cruise for two in appreciation. Everyone shared a potluck luncheon afterward. It was a happy, blessed day.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com E ach month, Marion Landing shows its appreciation to its volunteers by recognizing residents who have made significant contributions to the community. At the June 5 Tuesday Social, Eileen Stannard was presented with a volunteer appreciation award by Board Second Vice President Charlie Mock. In his presentation, Charlie said, This young lady has been a resident of Marion Landing, with her husband, for 21 years. You name the activity, and she probably has been a part of it. Back some years ago, she was on the original advisory council; she headed up yard sales, as well as serving as a worker; she was a former water exercise leader; and she did her bit by running bingo. She has delivered the Communicator to her neighbors and is now a part of the Communicators collating team. A member of Sunshine, she has also helped with numerous luncheons and dinners throughout the years. Somehow she also was able to squeeze in Patrol in this busy schedule. Oh, yes, and what about the 4th of July parades that she assisted with and, of course, how can we forget her participation in the Marion Landing kitchen band. It is my great pleasure to introduce our volunteer recognition recipient: Eileen Stannard. Eileens engraved plaque will join the more than 145 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.Celebrate the 4th of JulyCome and celebrate Independence Day with your Marion Landing neighbors and friends on Wednesday, July 4. There are still a few more days left to get your tickets to this annual event. Beef hot dogs and buns, sliced ham and rolls, southern potato salad, beverages, condiments and all the fixins will be provided; and if you are bringing a dish to share, please sign up in the Activities Office. The entertainment will be by Reckless Faith, a band which was formed by Steve Hilton, son-in-law of our own Marion Landing residents Barbara and John Hinrichs. They play music that is uplifting and enjoyable for folks of all ages. Band members along with Steve Hilton are Curtis Curl, Scotty Van Hoeck and Russ Victor. They have been playing all over central Florida at various community events and are just a group of blue collar guys that love music and enjoy giving back to our communities. Tickets are $5 each and are still available in the Activities Office today and Monday, as well as on Tuesday, June 26, at the Social.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com E ach month, Marion Landing shows its appreciation to its volunteers by recognizing residents who have made significant contributions to the community. At the June 5 Tuesday Social, Eileen Stannard was presented with a volunteer appreciation award by Board Second Vice President Charlie Mock. In his presentation, Charlie said, This young lady has been a resident of Marion Landing, with her husband, for 21 years. You name the activity, and she probably has been a part of it. Back some years ago, she was on the original advisory council; she headed up yard sales, as well as serving as a worker; she was a former water exercise leader; and she did her bit by running bingo. She has delivered the Communicator to her neighbors and is now a part of the Communicators collating team. A member of Sunshine, she has also helped with numerous luncheons and dinners throughout the years. Somehow she also was able to squeeze in Patrol in this busy schedule. Oh, yes, and what about the 4th of July parades that she assisted with and, of course, how can we forget her participation in the Marion Landing kitchen band. It is my great pleasure to introduce our volunteer recognition recipient: Eileen Stannard. Eileens engraved plaque will join the more than 145 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.Celebrate the 4th of JulyCome and celebrate Independence Day with your Marion Landing neighbors and friends on Wednesday, July 4.

Erics parents, Harold and Nancy Scott of Marion Landing, traveled to New York to be a part of the surprise. Also sharing in the celebration were Pastor Erics sister, Lorri Field and her husband Roger and son Jacob, as well as cousin David Gardner and his wife Donna from Canada. Pastor Eric and Deby were taken by surprise; and Eric said, I cant understand how they (his congregation) put it over on us. A video of events highlighting the 20 years of Eric and Debys service was shown, special music written and sung by members of the youth group, and presented to the family were bouquets of flowers to Deby and their daughters, Erin, Sarah, Hannah and Deborah, and basketballs for sons Josiah and Nick. Many thanks were expressed not only to Eric and Deby, but to the children for all the time away from them required by their Dads position as Pastor of Celebration Family Church. Eric and Deby were also presented with a certificate for a cruise for two in appreciation. Everyone shared a potluck luncheon afterward. It was a happy, blessed day.

RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 I ts hot and humid. We dont need the calendar to tell us that summer started this last Wednesday. Grab a cool one, take a seat and enjoy some hot stories. Banded Just before the end to the school year, the teacher had opened the band room windows to get some needed ventilation when a large insect flew into the room. The students tried to ignore the buzzing intruder, but eventually one student, Tommy, could stand it no more. He rolled up his music book and swatted the insect and then stomped on it to ensure its fate. Is it a bee, another student asked. Nope, Tommy replied. Bee flat. For the birdsOne evening an avid bird watcher stood in his backyard and heard an owl hoot. So he thought hed give a hoot back. To his surprise and delight the bird hooted again. The next night the same scenario occurred. All summer, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife, had a chat with her next-door neighbor. My husband spends his nights calling to owls, the wife commented. Thats odd, the neighbor replied. So does my husband. Air or heir? Married life seemed to have worn him down, so he went to his doctor for a check-up. Theres nothing radically wrong with you, the doctor said after a thorough examination, all you need is a little sun and air. Yes, I suppose youre right, said the patient, but my wifes dead set against having any children. SummertimeComputer geeks will not be competing in this years summer Olympics in London because the Olympic committee refused to add a floppy discus competition. Surfing must be a religion to some kids; they do it kneeling. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? Summer is the time when it is too hot to do the jobs it was too cold to do in winter. Gulls are named seagulls because if they were by the bay, theyd be bagels. In the winter Joes dog wears his coat, but in the summer he wears his coat and pants. While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. We recently went to a seaside resort for a change and a rest. The maid got the change and hotel got the rest. You say you saw a lot of her this summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Too muchOn their annual summer eating tour, veteran overeaters Mike and Monica were thrilled with the street vendors in Philadelphia, which allowed them to stuff their faces while they waddled from street corner to street corner. Mike, ever the joker, walked backward across Market Street with a hot dog stuck in each ear, commenting that a frank with the works sure sounded good, and thus, didnt hear Monicas anguished cry, Watch out for the hoagie car, Michael.Fractured Summer vacation was near and the teacher was trying to give her class an impression of fractions that would last until school resumed. She told them they could think of fractions at home as well as in school and gave such examples as half a sandwich, a quarter of a pie and tenth part of a dollar. At that point one little boy caught on and proudly contributed, My father came home last night with a fifth.JumpyTom was one of the last patrons to leave the local tavern one summer night, and he took his usual shortcut through the cemetery. It was a very dark night, Enjoy some hot summer stories P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN PAGE17 and, he tumbled into a freshly dug grave. He was not hurt, but the hole was too deep and the ground too soft for him to climb out. He curled up in a corner to wait for daybreak and the arrival of the cemetery crew. He dozed off. The guy who must have been the last to leave the tavern came down the same path, and he too tumbled in. Tom woke up as this new fellow jumped and clawed at the sides, trying futilely to climb out. Finally, Tom said, You know, you cant get out that way. But he did.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. PUN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 A ll members of the Cherrywood Veterans Club are invited to attend the Veterans Club Appreciation Dinner and Dance on July 7. This is a free event for members and their significant others but you must have tickets. Guests are $7 each and must either be a resident of Cherrywood or an overnight guest of a member.

Dont miss it.Shutterbugs change meeting dateIn the summer months, many of our members head back north to spend time with family and friends. Because of this, the Shutter Bugs camera club will be meeting only once a month instead of twice. The next meeting will be in the library of the clubhouse on July 6, the first Friday of the month. The members would like to thank Dan and Joan Welch for their hospitality at our last meeting. They hosted our club for a photo shoot at their home this past week. Their property is adjacent to the pastures where horses and goats graze and we were able to get some very interesting and beautiful photos thanks to them. In addition, we would like to thank Geri for taking the time to show us how to transfer our photos onto the computer and send them to various people. Friday the 15th was a good day for the club and were looking forward to even better things in the future. Grab your camera and join us on July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse for our next field trip or technical instruction.

For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.

Continue to wait until more is available before acting on that career move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You continue on an upbeat cycle, and with that strong Taurean energy you should see favorable results from your hard work. A pleasant surprise awaits you in your private life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A misunderstanding needs more time to be worked out. Dont give up on it just yet. Remain open to providing explanations, if called for. Another friend offers good advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Fast action can correct a seemingly minor problem that has taken on some unexpectedly difficult aspects. Stay with it until its resolved. News on a more positive note is due soon. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Some snags could cause delays in those plans youre eager to see put into operation. But be patient. The Clever Cat will soon have good reason to celebrate a job well done. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let that Virgan sensitivity dissuade you from being the hardheaded realist you should be at this time. Your goals are in sight. Stay focused on them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A more positive aspect opens up, allowing you to make some important changes in a personal situation. Remember to seek balance and avoid extremes as you proceed. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good week to get out and enjoy the fine times you missed while you were so deep in those workaday projects. Be sure to share it with that special person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Work and play are in balance this week. However, expect news that could tip things toward the workplace for quite a while. But all to a good end. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youre more productive on the job than you have been in some time. Thats good. But be careful not to overlook some situations developing in your private life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been doing a lot for others (as usual). But now its time to focus on your needs, including finally going on that long-delayed trip youve been hoping to make. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Its all smoothly going on twixt you and that very special person in your life. But a colleague causes some disruption on the job that you might be called on to help settle. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to the needs of others. But youre no pushover.

neighbors to hear some top quality professional and amateur musicians do their thing. If youve never been to an Accordion Club session, you are invited to come on out and see for yourself how much fun it is. Put on your dancing shoes; grab some snacks, beverages and your friends; and then plan for an evening of pure enjoyment. Bingo Record SetBingo night at Cherrywood is full of fast paced excitement and friendly fellowship. Last Thursday night, during one of the special games, there were seven winners; the most that have ever won a single game. When they all yelled Bingo! at the same time, there was a mixture of laughter and surprise. There were so many that all of the individual winners had to stand up to be recognized while their cards were verified. As always it was a fun time for the 70 or more people that showed up. The crowd is a little smaller during the summer months when our snow birds are gone but Bingo still rates high on the entertainment meter for all the participants. Thanks to our volunteers for all their hard work and for making Thursday night Bingo at Cherrywood the best place to have fun; excitement and friendship. Crochet & Knitting ClubMembers continue to work on various projects to be distributed to charities. We dont take a summer break, so donations are always appreciated. If you have yarn, polyester stuffing for toys, books, or other supplies that you no longer need, please consider donating them for our projects. These items can be dropped off any time at the clubhouse in Geris office, or wed love to meet and thank you, so come to our regular meeting time on Friday between 1 and 3 p.m. At present our project is creating a Granny Square afghan to be raffled off at the craft show in Cherrywood to be held in October. Several members are participating by making various colorful squares which will be assembled and completed by member Stevie Pickrell. Proceeds will go to a local childrens charity, as yet to be determined. If youd like to learn to crochet or knit, we have ladies who are very willing to teach. It is a rewarding hobby and keeps your mind and hands busy. You are invited to come out and observe our group any Friday. Theres always a pot of coffee and yummy goodies to share. Article provided by Edna Fazio Newcomers to CherrywoodAre you new to Cherrywood? You arent alone. We average between two to five new families every month moving into our community and we want to welcome you. We have a new committee that would like to personally invite you to attend the activities; to give you information about some of the many services here in Marion County and to let you know that you are a welcome addition to Cherrywood. Suzi Everlove, Genevieve Downs and Rich Becotte are on our welcoming committee and they would love to pay you a visit. Just contact Geri at the office with your name and phone number so they can call you to set up an appointment.

Free popcorn and lemonade are provided but if you have a preferred beverage and/or snack, bring it along. 7 p.m. is show time and its free so come a little early to insure you get a great seat.

Blood Drive Coming On July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., the bloodmobile will be parked outside the clubhouse to take your donations of life giving blood. Its quick and easy to give blood in a sterile atmosphere surrounded by professionals who can walk you through the process step by step. First time donors are especially welcome and our repeat givers are greatly appreciated. On a personal note, dont let me lose my bet. We desperately need someone to volunteer to handle the blood donation program here at Cherrywood. This requires only a few hours of your time every couple of months to keep our blood donations flowing smoothly. I made a bet with Geri that one or two of our residents would step up and take over this worthwhile project before July 12. Im counting on the good hearted people who make up Cherrywood to jump in take charge. Call Geri today and volunteer. Flu Shots Flu Shots will be available in the clubhouse in September and October this year. The details and dates are being worked out so keep an eye on this column and your Chirp Newsletter. We want to make it convenient and easy to be healthy so you can enjoy all of the activities we have to offer. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Harriet Scarpino, President of the Democratic Club of Cherrywood. Harriet has lived in Cherrywood for 16 years and was one of the first residents in our community. She is a native of Long Island and Massapequa, New York. She has a sister Doris who currently lives in South Orange, New Jersey. Another sister, Sylvia, is deceased. During the Second World War, as a young woman, she worked for the Silver Vogue Corp. Origi-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com S peaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just How a person can ruin a perfectly good day O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE11 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Harriet and Ken Scarpino.

In addition, Ive been a Blue Cross and Medicare fraud, auditor, Executive Director of the Florida Nursing Home Association, member of the Florida Hospital Accountants Association, Secretary of the Eastern division of the Florida Hospital Association and finally Assistant Administrator of Ormond Beach Memorial Hospital for Finance and Development, when it first opened. I also lobbied the Florida Legislature, when then State Senator Lawton Chiles sponsored my three bills in the State Senate, and they all passed both houses. Im not lobbying to get on the MRMC board, but at least I could help the professionals who know how a hospital should be run. Now, for the problem, and Ive addressed it before in the newspaper and at MRMC board meetings. If the hospital wants to raise funds it should be through a 1/2 cent sales tax. A one (1) mill tax on property will not pass. You must realize, that a great portion of the Marion County population are retirees, and theyre not going to hold still for a one (1) mill increase on their property taxes, I know I wont. A sales tax of 1/2 of one percent is the most fair, as all the people of Marion County should pay their fair share. The one (1) mill issue is doomed to failure so forget it now before its too late and try the logical approach. There are those who will say the sales tax will not provide enough money for MRMC, and it will have to be distributed to other areas as well. Now, thats where lawyers come into play. The sales tax should be for MRMC only. As an afterthought, all totaled, Ive lived in this north central Florida area for over 30 years and it seems the civic leaders still dont get it. Bill Ford Ocala Off the messageThe Republicans are experts at taking the president off message and changing the subject to their interests in what they believe and what they want to talk about. Why does the president allow the Repub-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 licans to frame and control the issues of the day in their talking points and not allow him to talk about job creation. Please, Mr. President, dont just talk about jobs for Americans but explain day after day how to put the unemployed back to work with programs that help our countries workforce. Have the Democrats in the House and Senate submit bills to work on the infrastructure, the highways, the bridges, the energy crisis, the water crisis, the reforestation of our national parks just to name a few. If you are forceful enough and talk about jobs on a daily basis, the voting public may just begin to believe you. When you allow the Republicans to set the issues that they want you to talk about, you lose. The American people are not interested in your sidebar discussions with the Republicans unless they result in jobs for the people. This is the issue of the day. Dont get distracted with the lies from the far right. Yes you must point these falsehoods out but let the voting public know to relate the fact that these lies about you are just a distraction to change the subject. You made a mistake in your first year in office by trying to work with the hateful leadership of the Republican party but they have made their message clear. Now it is time to make your message clear and let the Republicans know that their anti-American ideas have not worked in the past and you are not going to listen to their garbage now. You are the only one who was elected president in the last election and if you want to keep your job to take care of the people, you must put America back to work.

She worked her way up to being a supervisor in that capacity and that is where she met her first husband, Sid Resnick. Sid was a naval officer during the war. Following the war the couple married and Harriet had two sons. They moved to Washington D.C. where Sids naval career had taken him and then moved back to Levittown N.Y. to settle down. Allan Resnick, Harriets oldest son, attended NYU and enrolled in the ROTC program. He worked his way up to the rank of colonel when he retired. He currently works advising the government on logistics and planning. Harriets second son, Lloyd, attended Dowling University and became a successful Social Studies teacher. Unfortunately, Lloyd passed away in 2010. During the Korean War, Harriet and Sid got a divorce. Moving back to Massapequa, she met her next door neighbor, Carl Scarpino. Carl and Harriet were soon married and Carl became like a father to the two boys. He always had time to nurture and love them, making sure they had their bar mitzvahs, graduations and other milestones of life celebrated in style. While Carl worked at Republic Aviation, Harriet opened her own gift and novelty store. She had majored in art at the University of Syracuse, so the shop was just an extension of her talents. She specialized in wholesale retail and party plans. When her business was struck by fire, she decided it was time to retire. Harriet had always been active in politics. She was first inspired by Harry Truman and worked on his campaign. She liked the mans straight forward style and honesty. It was a style she adopted as her own and has developed and maintained through out her life. Since that time, she has worked locally and nationally on every campaign for the Democratic Party. She takes pride in the fact that she was able to change the political affiliation of her home town, Massapequa. When first she moved back there, the Democrats were 20 percent of the voters while the Republicans were 80 percent. Because of her activism, by the time she left, it was exactly the opposite. Most admired in Harriets eyes as presidents were John Kennedy and Jimmy Carter. She states that history will prove Jimmy Carter was one of our greatest presidents. When asked what she admired both about the two men she answered, Their youth; their love of people and feeling for the people. They cared about the man on the street. Early on in her retirement, when Cherrywood was in its infancy, Harriet worked with the On Top of the World Democratic Club. This was due to her husband Carls encouragement. Before long, as more and more people moved into our community, Harriet was urged by the Party to start a Democratic Club here in Cherrywood. Eagerly Harriet accepted the challenge and began by serving refreshments at the meetings. She compared it to entertaining in her own home. If you came to my house, I would serve you food so I did the same at our meetings. The hallmarks of her meetings were that there would be no smears allowed and all meetings would be open. She believes that people must have open minds and listen to all sides of an argument to be well informed. Harriet had to fight some in the Democratic Organization on these points but her indomitable spirit won out. She credits the growth of the party to these policies. Since its inception, Harriet has been the enthusiastic and energetic president of the Democratic Club. Undaunted by the passing of her husband nearly 12 years ago, she has continued on for these many years. In October of last year, Harriet began experiencing health problems of her own. Currently she is recovering at TimberRidge. Her good friend Ken Beech has been assisting her by providing support and encouragement. Ken is the vice president of the club, and maintains Harriets high standard of communication and leadership in her absence. In spite of her hardships and illness, Harriet is still a feisty, humorous, and lovely woman with an unbeatable spirit. She loves life and people; easily cultivating friends of all political bents and views. She still laughs easily and often. When asked what she considered the most important thing in life was she replied emphatically, Voting! Harriet continued by stating, Voting is a priceless right no matter whether youre Democrat, Republican or Independent! It is a privilege. In addition to her work with the Democratic Club and Democrat Party, Harriet served for 11 years on the 200 Coalition. When she was active there used to be more than 100 members but participation has dwindled since that time. This is a disappointment to Harriet. On a personal note, your correspondent interviewed Harriet at TimberRidge. She expressed her heartfelt gratitude to all of her friends and neighbors for their support; phone calls; visits and prayers. Please thank all the wonderful people who have called and sent cards, she told me. She has on her bed a stuffed elephant, given to her by some of her Republican friends of which she has many. With her unique personality; unflinching determination and fantastic sense of humor, Harriet is indeed an asset to Cherrywood. We wish her a speedy and complete recovery.From Your Reporter I would like to take a moment to send out a special thank you to two individuals who contributed to this weeks column. Ken Beech accompanied me to TimberRidge for the interview with Harriet Scarpino (See Spotlight) and was a great help. Next a special Thanks to Bobbie Letendre for suggesting a Welcoming Committee for Cherrywood. (See article Newcomers to Cherrywood above). Good ideas are always welcome and I appreciate your thoughtful input.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 N o one can ever accuse me of being a golfer. I have played one round of golf in my life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I mention it was a nine-hole course? That was back when I was 16 and my dad tried to teach me on a simple little course at a place called Mystic Islands, New Jersey. My dad was good at a lot of things, but he didnt succeed at this one, although it probably wasnt his fault. Thats why Ive grown up rarely watching golf on television, except for the majors and the TPC at Sawgrass, which I personally attended once. Last weekend we had a major, the U.S. Open, played somewhere near San Francisco on the West Coast. The way the golfers played, it didnt seem like a major. No one was under par. If I want to watch a bunch of golfers who cant break par, I can go sit out near the 18th hole at the Municipal Golf Course in Ocala. Turning on the U.S. Open this year was like turning on the Super Bowl, and instead getting a Pop Warner game. I could just envision golfers all over the country saying, I can do that. This tournament ends on Fathers Day, the third Sunday in June. Whats the matter? Couldnt they find a place where June means summer weather? Players were wearing sweatshirts and other paraphernalia to keep warm. On Sunday, a sea fog was rolling in off the Pacific to give the golfers just another distraction. Of course, when I bothered to listen, the commentators were gushing positives about the course, but I would imagine the USGA would make sure they were never heard from again if they dared to criticize anything. There also seems to be some sort of controversy surrounding Johnny Miller, who was commenting for NBC. Im not sure why, but then again I try not to listen too much to the analysts, who are usually wrong. One of the big stories over the weekend was about a 17-year-old kid from California, wearing a University of Texas shirt, who was actually in contention. He faded on Sunday and didnt even end up as the low amateur. Then there was Tiger Woods, who was in the lead briefly during the first two days, then crashed and burned on the weekend. When they interviewed Woods after Sundays round, he said that there were a lot of positives he could take away from his failure to win another major. Could have fooled me. Some guy named Webb Simpson won the tournament. It finished on Sunday after 10 p.m., and, well, when you get up before sunrise thats well past bedtime. I saw a tape Monday of the posttournament interview, which was crashed by someone. As the intruder was being hauled away, Simpson commented, Hope you enjoy the jail cell, buddy. At least this guy Simpson had a good sense of humor. So what comes next? Why, its the British Open, which is usually played on a course thats a code enforcement officers dream, one with knee-high weeds. Would it be too much to ask that the Brits play this tourney on a course that owns a lawn mower? Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

W eve all been hearing a lot lately about voter purges, where the state is trying to make sure that all voters are legitimately registered and are American citizens qualified to vote. For some reason, some people think this is a bad thing. They dont see to care that some votes are being cast illegally. It comes back to that old clich: What part of the word illegal dont you understand? Yes, there have been a few mistakes. But as far as we know, these mistakes have been caught and repaired, so no legal voter is being denied the right to cast a ballot. But in the spirit of offering solutions, weve come up with one that should satisfy all the people: Purge the voting rolls of all voters after the election in November. Thats right, get rid of everybody. Make everyone reregister to vote starting in January, making them prove that they are American citizens. That would clear the voting rolls of those who are ineligible. It would also clear the rolls of those who registered years ago but dont bother to vote. Chances are, they wouldnt take the time to go back and register again. Think back to recent elections. In some cases the turnout is less than 20 percent of registered voters. If its around 35 percent, its considered an average turnout. If its 50 percent or higher, its a record-setting turnout. Well, what about the 50 percent or more who dont turn out? If they werent on the voter rolls, it would speed up time at the polls, make sure that the voters are legal, and maybe the turnouts would be around 80 or 90 percent or so. At one time, there was a rule that if you didnt vote for a certain amount of time, your name was automatically purged. We always thought that was a good rule. But for some reason it no longer exists, and now the names of those who dont vote are on the list, gathering dust, so to speak. So lets start over with a clean slate of voters, so those who are eligible to vote have an easier time of it, and those who are ineligible or too lazy to vote can just stay home where theyll usually complain about who gets elected. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Purge everyone and start from scratch Was that really a major golf event? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Walking in Oak RunPlease let me offer a walkers perspective to the Oak Run Boulevard controversy and a possible solution which would satisfy both walkers and motorists. I have lived in Oak Run for seven happy years. We chose this community because all the recreational facilities are within waking distance although you cannot access them without traversing the boulevard. Also, the close proximity to stores and medical facilities that are on S.R. 200 where there are sidewalks. We are a one-car family, electing not to degradate our environment with unnecessary use of polluting vehicles. It is impossible to leave my neighborhood and get to Palm Grove for the exercise room or classes offered almost daily at the auditorium without navigating the boulevard. The Island Club and the swimming pools also require a trip on the beautiful road. To deny me access to activities to maintain my health which I, like all others pay for in my amenities fee, is unfair. To deny me access to my doctors, dentists or lab facilities across 200 on days I do not have a car is unconscionable. I walk where I need to go. Most drivers put on their signals and move over to the next lane. When drivers are not able or unwilling to share the road, I move quickly onto the grass. The newly posted signs are facing traffic. They say walking here is prohibited. Walking the correct way facing traffic you do not see the signs, so I am not in violation. Motorists, please move over if you are able. No one wants to deliberately hurt another resident. A solution that would please both camps and also add to Mr. Ghumanns living legacy would be to construct an asphalt walking path parallel to the boulevard. It would be a gift to the residents reminiscent of OTOWs Mr. Colens development of Shalom Park on Southwest 80th Avenue. Until then, fellow walkers, pay attention, be alert to the traffic we face. Be prepared to move out of the way of anyone who may not see you on the back roads as well as on our lovely boulevard. Peggy Gunter Oak RunBills and taxesHave you looked closely, at a copy of any of your bills, lately? One of my bills had an increase, and I decided to check it out. What I discover during that perusal was astonishing. There are ten, yes 10 separate taxes on the bill. They are the following amounts: .98,1.14, .66, .43, .11, .21, .22, .18, .50, 1.07. No big deal. The total is only $5.40 per bill, $5.50 per calculator. This is how they are nickel and diming us to death. The talk is now of a government charge on every deposit, and withdrawal to your bank account. Where, or when does it end? Will they ever run out of ideas as to where to pile on another tax? One other thought. How, much does it cost to process an .11 tax? Printing material, shipping, handling, manpower, fuel, equipment, etc.? These things boggle the mind. When is an insatiable government satiated? Next month there may be 12 taxes on the bill. Mean to keep an eye on that one. Other bills have taxes, they are fewer in number. TAX, TAX, TAX. We need a tax anthem, anyone have a ditty in their portfolio? D.I. Larson Ocala READER OPINIONS INVITED The South Marion Citizen is looking for volunteer correspondents for the following areas: Palm Cay, Pine Run, Spruce Creek North, Spruce Creek Preserve. If interested, please contact the editor. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MRMC and Its supportersIm constantly reading about what people want to do to Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC), and not one of them knows what they are talking about. The only person making any sense, other than the professionals who are managing the hospital, has been Kulbar Ghumman. Hes been on the board long enough, and has the experience, to discuss the hospitals needs intelligently. Ive said it before and Ill say it here again, lawyers make very poor board members on any board. Ive attended enough MRMC board meetings to hear them speak with little in a positive nature. Theres no one on the board with a hospital management background, and that includes doctors. They would be the last to be selected, because in the back of their minds, their own interests come first. Plus, just because a person owns a business doesnt make them an authority on hospitals. During the few times Ive spoken at the hospital board meetings, I mentioned that in years past, I audited whats now MRMC, so many time Ive forgotten the number. Many years ago when I was a member of the Florida Hospital Association as well as the Florida Osteopathic Hospital Association, and it was an understanding, that doctors and lawyers were not the best hospital board members. I dont know about Indian chiefs, maybe we should check with the Seminoles.

Know what your manual says about (or at least know where it explains) Exposure Compensation, Bracketing, Histograms, White Balance, and Depth of Field. If you do not understand what the manual is telling you, senior club members will help you. You must have your manual or a book dedicated to your camera and know where to look for the information. Please do not expect the senior photographers to be familiar with your camera. They will be able to look at your manual and explain what it says to you but they should not be expected to look up the material for you. For more Information about the Oak Run Photography Club please see our blog at orphotoclub.blogspot.com/. Oak Run Travel Wow! That was what our travelers said about the production of New York Nights at the Show Palace on June 10. The cast performed just as you would expect to see on Broadway. Everyone wanted more of the classical pop music from those beautiful voices! The Nov. 16 tour to Rediscovering Real Florida with Eleanor and Rich Feltenburger as hosts and also Wonders of Winter Park and Treasures of Tiffany on Nov. 30 with Rudy and Delores Frey as hosts have turned out to be very popular. As a result we will be doing both of them again in 2013 so be on the lookout for the sale dates in the Oak Run Travel brochure. A number of our trips this year have been sell-outs with a wait list. Sometimes when we get enough on the list we can get another bus going so never be reluctant to get on the wait list for any trip. It helps us to help you take the trips you really like. Of course, even without another bus you can often still make the trip due to someone having to cancel. So always get on the wait list, you have 2 good reasons to do so. Royal Oaks Mens GolfIts good to be back in action again after two successive weeks of cancellations due to rain. Needless to say, we needed the rain more than the golf at this time, so not too many complained about the wet weather. I might add it really greened up the golf course. The game on June 15 was the usual three best net. Thirty seven players participated, which is good considering the time of year. And the winners were First with a 194, Bill Staiger, George Gariepy, John ONeill, and Paul Valois; Second with a 195, Dick Blackburn, Bob Gildea, and Duke Slayton. Third was a tie between three teams with a score of 200. These were Emmett Dowling, Charlie Elder, Sam Owens, and Fred West; Hal Loomis, Ed Simnowitz, Tom Ducz, and Larry Soine; and Dale Wurzburger, Virgil Hein, Chuck Engel, and Tom Morris Closest to the pin were Bill Start, Mickey Klein, John Wargo, and Mike Madill. A beautiful day on a good golf course what more could one ask for. See you next week. ORWGAWinners of the Low Net Tournament held on June 7 included: Flight A:Sue Marentette 1st,Connie Bingham 2nd, Joann Cohen 3rd; Flight B: Annette Carini 1st, Olive Adler 2nd, Donna Huffman 3rd; Flight C: LaVerne Browand 1st, Norma Erickson 2nd, Ginny Simons 3rd; Flight D: Betty Scott 1st, Pat Tarman 2nd, Ann Hurr 3rd Closest to the PinNancy Reichenbache; Chip In Olive Adler The winners of the June 14th tournament were: Flight A: Connie Bingham 1st, Marti Babb 2nd, JoAnn Cohen 3rd; Flight B: Sue Marentette 1st, Olive Adler 2nd, Donna Huffman 3rd; Flight C: Bev Schasel 1st, Kate Lott 2nd, Norma Erickson 3rd; Flight D: Ginny Simons 1st, Mary Hart 2nd, Evelyn Exell 3rd Closest to the PinConnie Bingham; No Chip Ins. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, June 12, we played our Flag Tournament in honor of Flag Day. Each player was given a small flag. On each flag was the number of strokes the player could make before planting her flag in the ground. That number of strokes was the course par of 72 plus the players handicap. Thus someone with a handicap of 25 would plant their flag after taking 97 strokes (72+25). The winners were: 1st PlaceJT Lemasters whose flag made it back to the First Hole by the Green!, 2nd PlaceSylvia Zappia, 3rd PlaceSalita Timmermeyer, 4th PlaceCarolyn Collins. All three of these members also finished 18 holes and made it back to the fairway of the first hole! Nice play ladies!! Tied for 5th place by holing their ball on the 18th hole were Maureen Edwards, Judy Klein, Sheila Adams, and Beverly Lassiter. Patty Dougherty was Closest to the Pin. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 14 we played Tee to Green and 1/2 handicap. There were only 8 players. Everybody seems to be away, so we had only three winners. Tied in first Sam Timmermeyer and BJ Lassiter, third Rae Stover. We hope to have a better turn out next week. Mr. Codys Corner Id really like to know if golfers shouldnt wear two pair of pants. You know, in case they get a hole in one. Send all items for this column to Carol Ann Wheeler at democratcarol@deccacable.com no later than the afternoon of the Friday before publication.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he British mania for all things Gypsy has resulted in a blockbuster reality series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and four books on the subject. The first to reach America is Gypsy Boy, a grim yet often funny look at Romany lifestyle. Mikey Walsh, a pseudonym because a price is still on his head, is born into a clan of bare-knuckle fighters. His own father is reputed to be a Black Knight of raging firepower. Unfortunately for Mikey he is slightly built and has no interest in the blood sport. That means that from a very tender age he is beaten without letup in order to turn him into a champion, which from the start is a lost cause. He lacks the gene that makes Gypsy men born brawlers who end all festive occasions like weddings in violence. Mikeys salvation lies in his gentler mother and his constant companion older sister Frankie. And between horrible thrashings theres much to enjoy in this coming-of-age memoir. There is, for instance, Gypsy bad taste in fashion like velour tracksuits and stilettos with a tiny gold scale model of the Eiffel Tower welded into each heel. More comedy is invoked when Mikey tags along on some hilarious shoplifting trips with a kleptomaniac aunt who stuffs piles of merchandise under her fur coat. Along the way Walsh dispels myths such as Gypsy curses. There are none, and the notion that Gypsies are poor is false as well. Far from it, he says. Their trailer encampments are well furnished and unhealthy food such as fried take-out is plentiful. Moreover, many have luxury cars. But they shun the outside world, refusing to send their children to school unless forced to. Highly insulated, Gypsies as a whole suspect all outsiders. Despite the brutal circumstances of his childhood, which included sexual abuse from an uncle, Walsh often waxes nostalgic about the life he was forced to leave at age 15, knowing that custom dictated he could never return once he left. In London he finds himself and comes out of the closet. When his father learns hes gay, he puts a bounty on his head. Still, the author concludes by saying I wouldnt change my life. I am proud of my race, and what I am. You can take the boy away from the Gypsies, but you cant take the Gypsy out of the boy.

Upcoming activities at Moose Lodge JOB FAIRCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Jonathan H Holling, representing the U.S. in Quebec, Canada, along with 17 other entrants from the U.S. at the 2012 Volvo Bromont, won CCI3 Three Day Event and The Todd Sandler Challenge on Sunday, June 10. Holling led the CCI3 division from beginning to end riding Connie Hollings eight-year-old Trakehner gelding Downtown Harrison. Of the initial 18 combinations in the division, 12 completed the event which concluded with the show jumping phase. This is an Ocala rider, Ocala horse and Ocala trainer, said Jons wife, Jenn Holling. Holling, entering the arena last, had two rails in hand and he used them both. An early knock down at the second fence, a vertical, was followed by another vertical down at number five. Holling managed to leave the rest of the jumps in their cups, adding eight faults to his score for a total of 58.8, and clinching victory in his horses three-star debut. The CIC3 division was won by Karen OConnor of the United States. It was a clean sweep for the USA, with OConnor also winning the CCI2 division and fellow American Buck Davidson winning the CCI1 division. Jon Holling has served eventing in a variety of capacities, including as a four-star rider, a well respected coach, an event organizer, and a leader on various committees and organizations including as Chair of the USEAs Professional Horsemans Council. Holling is originally from Wisconsin and now he and his wife, Jenn, and son Caiden reside at Willow Run in Ocala.

Alberto Perez 29, felony bench warrant bond revoked by court, count 1, driving while license revoked as habitual offender; count 2, DUI impairment. Jitkeisha Rachel 24, felony criminal use of personal identification information. Deputies arrested two local men on charges of retail grand theft after an incident at Walmart. According to the report, William John Bassete Smith Jr., 32, of Southwest 186th Court, allegedly tried to return some items to the service desk, including a pre-paid cell phone, which was never activated, razors, a calculator, a mag light, and other items. The store refused the refund and the man left the store, activating the merchandise alarm. He went to a car which had another man in it, and they left the area together. The tag number was reported to deputies, and a deputy said he knew where it might be located. Officials went to the home. After questioning Smith and Jason Scott OMara, 31, deputies placed both under arrest for retail grand theft. A 23-year-old Ocala man was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped on State Road 40 in the 4400 block for failing to stay in a single lane and stopping for a red light in the middle of an intersection. When the deputy activated his lights, the car turned into a gas station and struck a pole, kept going and stopped by the building. The driver, Domingo Reyes, 23, of Northwest Gainesville Road, got out of the car, despite being tol to remain with the car, and walked toward the deputy, where he had to be subdued. He was then arrested and taken to jail, and the Ocala Police Department investigated the accident because of the pole being struck. A homeless man, Glen Walter Morgan, 52, was arrested for trespass after warning at the Kangaroo Station on State Road 200 near 60th Avenue. Pair accused of retail grand theft at Walmart Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives arrested Richard L. Drake, of Summerfield and charged the 43 year-old in a double shooting killing one man. The charges are: One count of Murder One count of Attempted Murder One count of Grand Theft Auto Just after noon, Tuesday, June 19, 2012 deputies arrived at 9778 S.E. 164th Place, Summerfield. They quickly found David Walsh, 19, lying on the floor of the kitchen. Walsh was dead. It appeared he had been shot multiple times. While conducting a search of the backyard of the property, a deputy located Ethan Worthington, 19, who was suffering after being shot multiple times. Worthington was taken to the hospital. Witnesses led detectives to identify Drake as a person of interest. Drake, reportedly, left the scene in Walshs Chevy Impala. About seven hours later, deputies found Drake in Fort McCoy. Drake was arrested and transported to the jail without incident. Drake was being held with no bond. Summerfield man faces murder charge On June 1, Captain Gerard Stroh officially retired from the Friendship Volunteer Fire Department (FVFD) and Marion County Fire Rescue Station 21. He started as a volunteer with this department in January 1997 after coming to Ocala from New York where he had also served as a firefighter. He arrived and took a leadership position when FVFD was previously housed on S.R. 200 in a building that had been used for processing meat. He witnessed many changes within this station which finally resulted in the transition into our new Station 21 Friendship building at Southwest 90th Street. He facilitated several major changes that advanced the services to the local community. During his tenure, the volunteers purchased Grass 521, received the new Fire Engine 521, maintained and operated Grass 521 and helped establish Rehab 21 truck which provides aide and supplies to firefighters working long hours on calls. Over Jerrys career span, he has dedicated his time and responded to countless emergency calls.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Marions Most Wanted Michael Baker, 29, felony violation of probation, driving while license suspended, revoked, etc., third offense. Jeanette Dodd, 28, felony violation of probation, organized fraud. John Paul Mathews, 20, felony warrant child abuse without great bodily harm; battery. Ramon McCormick, 20, felony violation of probation, resisting officer with violence. Alberto Perez, 29, felony bench warrant bond revoked by court, count 1, driving while license revoked as habitual offender; count 2, DUI impairment. Jitkeisha Rachel, 24, felony criminal use of personal identification information. Deputies arrested two local men on charges of retail grand theft after an incident at Walmart. According to the report, William John Bassete Smith Jr., 32, of Southwest 186th Court, allegedly tried to return some items to the service desk, including a pre-paid cell phone, which was never activated, razors, a calculator, a mag light, and other items. The store refused the refund and the man left the store, activating the merchandise alarm. He went to a car which had another man in it, and they left the area together. The tag number was reported to deputies, and a deputy said he knew where it might be located. Officials went to the home. After questioning Smith and Jason Scott OMara, 31, deputies placed both under arrest for retail grand theft. A 23-year-old Ocala man was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped on State Road 40 in the 4400 block for failing to stay in a single lane and stopping for a red light in the middle of an intersection. When the deputy activated his lights, the car turned into a gas station and struck a pole, kept going and stopped by the building. The driver, Domingo Reyes, 23, of Northwest Gainesville Road, got out of the car, despite being tol to remain with the car, and walked toward the deputy, where he had to be subdued. He was then arrested and taken to jail, and the Ocala Police Department investigated the accident because of the pole being struck. A homeless man, Glen Walter Morgan, 52, was arrested for trespass after warning at the Kangaroo Station on State Road 200 near 60th Avenue. Pair accused of retail grand theft at Walmart Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives arrested Richard L. Drake, of Summerfield and charged the 43 year-old in a double shooting killing one man. The charges are: One count of Murder One count of Attempted Murder One count of Grand Theft Auto Just after noon, Tuesday, June 19, 2012 deputies arrived at 9778 S.E. 164th Place, Summerfield. They quickly found David Walsh, 19, lying on the floor of the kitchen. Walsh was dead. It appeared he had been shot multiple times. While conducting a search of the backyard of the property, a deputy located Ethan Worthington, 19, who was suffering after being shot multiple times. Worthington was taken to the hospital. Witnesses led detectives to identify Drake as a person of interest. Drake, reportedly, left the scene in Walshs Chevy Impala. About seven hours later, deputies found Drake in Fort McCoy. Drake was arrested and transported to the jail without incident. Drake was being held with no bond. Summerfield man faces murder charge On June 1, Captain Gerard Stroh officially retired from the Friendship Volunteer Fire Department (FVFD) and Marion County Fire Rescue Station 21. He started as a volunteer with this department in January 1997 after coming to Ocala from New York where he had also served as a firefighter. He arrived and took a leadership position when FVFD was previously housed on S.R. 200 in a building that had been used for processing meat. He witnessed many changes within this station which finally resulted in the transition into our new Station 21 Friendship building at Southwest 90th Street. He facilitated several major changes that advanced the services to the local community. During his tenure, the volunteers purchased Grass 521, received the new Fire Engine 521, maintained and operated Grass 521 and helped establish Rehab 21 truck which provides aide and supplies to firefighters working long hours on calls. Over Jerrys career span, he has dedicated his time and responded to countless emergency calls.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The British mania for all things Gypsy has resulted in a blockbuster reality series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and four books on the subject. The first to reach America is Gypsy Boy, a grim yet often funny look at Romany lifestyle. Mikey Walsh, a pseudonym because a price is still on his head, is born into a clan of bare-knuckle fighters. His own father is reputed to be a Black Knight of raging firepower. Unfortunately for Mikey he is slightly built and has no interest in the blood sport. That means that from a very tender age he is beaten without letup in order to turn him into a champion, which from the start is a lost cause. He lacks the gene that makes Gypsy men born brawlers who end all festive occasions like weddings in violence. Mikeys salvation lies in his gentler mother and his constant companion older sister Frankie. And between horrible thrashings theres much to enjoy in this coming-of-age memoir. There is, for instance, Gypsy bad taste in fashion like velour tracksuits and stilettos with a tiny gold scale model of the Eiffel Tower welded into each heel. More comedy is invoked when Mikey tags along on some hilarious shoplifting trips with a kleptomaniac aunt who stuffs piles of merchandise under her fur coat. Along the way Walsh dispels myths such as Gypsy curses. There are none, and the notion that Gypsies are poor is false as well. Far from it, he says. Their trailer encampments are well furnished and unhealthy food such as fried take-out is plentiful. Moreover, many have luxury cars. But they shun the outside world, refusing to send their children to school unless forced to. Highly insulated, Gypsies as a whole suspect all outsiders. Despite the brutal circumstances of his childhood, which included sexual abuse from an uncle, Walsh often waxes nostalgic about the life he was forced to leave at age 15, knowing that custom dictated he could never return once he left. In London he finds himself and comes out of the closet. When his father learns hes gay, he puts a bounty on his head. Still, the author concludes by saying I wouldnt change my life. I am proud of my race, and what I am. You can take the boy away from the Gypsies, but you cant take the Gypsy out of the boy. British Gypsy book is the first to reach America GYPSY BOY: My Life in the Secret World of Romany GypsiesBy Mikey Walsh BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Check out our website www.smcitizen.com pointed to her current principal position at Dunnellon Middle eight years ago.

Upcoming activities at Moose Lodge JOB FAIRCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Jonathan H Holling, representing the U.S. in Quebec, Canada, along with 17 other entrants from the U.S. at the 2012 Volvo Bromont, won CCI3 Three Day Event and The Todd Sandler Challenge on Sunday, June 10. Holling led the CCI3 division from beginning to end riding Connie Hollings eight-year-old Trakehner gelding Downtown Harrison. Of the initial 18 combinations in the division, 12 completed the event which concluded with the show jumping phase. This is an Ocala rider, Ocala horse and Ocala trainer, said Jons wife, Jenn Holling. Holling, entering the arena last, had two rails in hand and he used them both. An early knock down at the second fence, a vertical, was followed by another vertical down at number five. Holling managed to leave the rest of the jumps in their cups, adding eight faults to his score for a total of 58.8, and clinching victory in his horses three-star debut. The CIC3 division was won by Karen OConnor of the United States. It was a clean sweep for the USA, with OConnor also winning the CCI2 division and fellow American Buck Davidson winning the CCI1 division. Jon Holling has served eventing in a variety of capacities, including as a four-star rider, a well respected coach, an event organizer, and a leader on various committees and organizations including as Chair of the USEAs Professional Horsemans Council. Holling is originally from Wisconsin and now he and his wife, Jenn, and son Caiden reside at Willow Run in Ocala. Of the 11 members of the US Short List for the 2012 London Olympic Games, just approved by the USEFs Executive Committee, three pairs competed at the Florida Horse Park in the in Equiventures Ocala Horse Properties Eventing in the 2011-12 season: Karen OConnor and Mr. Medicott, Clark Montgomery and Loughan Glen and Marilyn Little-Meredith and RF Rovano Rex.

Know what your manual says about (or at least know where it explains) Exposure Compensation, Bracketing, Histograms, White Balance, and Depth of Field. If you do not understand what the manual is telling you, senior club members will help you. You must have your manual or a book dedicated to your camera and know where to look for the information. Please do not expect the senior photographers to be familiar with your camera. They will be able to look at your manual and explain what it says to you but they should not be expected to look up the material for you. For more Information about the Oak Run Photography Club please see our blog at orphotoclub.blogspot.com/.Oak Run Travel Wow! That was what our travelers said about the production of New York Nights at the Show Palace on June 10. The cast performed just as you would expect to see on Broadway. Everyone wanted more of the classical pop music from those beautiful voices! The Nov. 16 tour to Rediscovering Real Florida with Eleanor and Rich Feltenburger as hosts and also Wonders of Winter Park and Treasures of Tiffany on Nov. 30 with Rudy and Delores Frey as hosts have turned out to be very popular. As a result we will be doing both of them again in 2013 so be on the lookout for the sale dates in the Oak Run Travel brochure. A number of our trips this year have been sell-outs with a wait list. Sometimes when we get enough on the list we can get another bus going so never be reluctant to get on the wait list for any trip. It helps us to help you take the trips you really like. Of course, even without another bus you can often still make the trip due to someone having to cancel. So always get on the wait list, you have 2 good reasons to do so.Royal Oaks Mens GolfIts good to be back in action again after two successive weeks of cancellations due to rain. Needless to say, we needed the rain more than the golf at this time, so not too many complained about the wet weather. I might add it really greened up the golf course. The game on June 15 was the usual three best net. Thirty seven players participated, which is good considering the time of year. And the winners were First with a 194, Bill Staiger, George Gariepy, John ONeill, and Paul Valois; Second with a 195, Dick Blackburn, Bob Gildea, and Duke Slayton. Third was a tie between three teams with a score of 200. These were Emmett Dowling, Charlie Elder, Sam Owens, and Fred West; Hal Loomis, Ed Simnowitz, Tom Ducz, and Larry Soine; and Dale Wurzburger, Virgil Hein, Chuck Engel, and Tom Morris Closest to the pin were Bill Start, Mickey Klein, John Wargo, and Mike Madill. A beautiful day on a good golf course what more could one ask for. See you next week.

Each player was given a small flag. On each flag was the number of strokes the player could make before planting her flag in the ground. That number of strokes was the course par of 72 plus the players handicap. Thus someone with a handicap of 25 would plant their flag after taking 97 strokes (72+25). The winners were: 1st PlaceJT Lemasters whose flag made it back to the First Hole by the Green!, 2nd PlaceSylvia Zappia, 3rd PlaceSalita Timmermeyer, 4th PlaceCarolyn Collins. All three of these members also finished 18 holes and made it back to the fairway of the first hole! Nice play ladies!! Tied for 5th place by holing their ball on the 18th hole were Maureen Edwards, Judy Klein, Sheila Adams, and Beverly Lassiter. Patty Dougherty was Closest to the Pin.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 14 we played Tee to Green and 1/2 handicap. There were only 8 players. Everybody seems to be away, so we had only three winners. Tied in first Sam Timmermeyer and BJ Lassiter, third Rae Stover. We hope to have a better turn out next week.Mr. Codys Corner Id really like to know if golfers shouldnt wear two pair of pants. You know, in case they get a hole in one. Send all items for this column to Carol Ann Wheeler at democratcarol@deccacable.com no later than the afternoon of the Friday before publication.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 22, 2012 No one can ever accuse me of being a golfer. I have played one round of golf in my life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I mention it was a nine-hole course? That was back when I was 16 and my dad tried to teach me on a simple little course at a place called Mystic Islands, New Jersey. My dad was good at a lot of things, but he didnt succeed at this one, although it probably wasnt his fault. Thats why Ive grown up rarely watching golf on television, except for the majors and the TPC at Sawgrass, which I personally attended once. Last weekend we had a major, the U.S. Open, played somewhere near San Francisco on the West Coast. The way the golfers played, it didnt seem like a major. No one was under par. If I want to watch a bunch of golfers who cant break par, I can go sit out near the 18th hole at the Municipal Golf Course in Ocala. Turning on the U.S. Open this year was like turning on the Super Bowl, and instead getting a Pop Warner game. I could just envision golfers all over the country saying, I can do that. This tournament ends on Fathers Day, the third Sunday in June. Whats the matter? Couldnt they find a place where June means summer weather? Players were wearing sweatshirts and other paraphernalia to keep warm. On Sunday, a sea fog was rolling in off the Pacific to give the golfers just another distraction. Of course, when I bothered to listen, the commentators were gushing positives about the course, but I would imagine the USGA would make sure they were never heard from again if they dared to criticize anything. There also seems to be some sort of controversy surrounding Johnny Miller, who was commenting for NBC. Im not sure why, but then again I try not to listen too much to the analysts, who are usually wrong. One of the big stories over the weekend was about a 17-year-old kid from California, wearing a University of Texas shirt, who was actually in contention. He faded on Sunday and didnt even end up as the low amateur. Then there was Tiger Woods, who was in the lead briefly during the first two days, then crashed and burned on the weekend. When they interviewed Woods after Sundays round, he said that there were a lot of positives he could take away from his failure to win another major. Could have fooled me. Some guy named Webb Simpson won the tournament. It finished on Sunday after 10 p.m., and, well, when you get up before sunrise thats well past bedtime. I saw a tape Monday of the posttournament interview, which was crashed by someone. As the intruder was being hauled away, Simpson commented, Hope you enjoy the jail cell, buddy. At least this guy Simpson had a good sense of humor. So what comes next? Why, its the British Open, which is usually played on a course thats a code enforcement officers dream, one with knee-high weeds. Would it be too much to ask that the Brits play this tourney on a course that owns a lawn mower?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Weve all been hearing a lot lately about voter purges, where the state is trying to make sure that all voters are legitimately registered and are American citizens qualified to vote. For some reason, some people think this is a bad thing. They dont see to care that some votes are being cast illegally. It comes back to that old clich: What part of the word illegal dont you understand? Yes, there have been a few mistakes. But as far as we know, these mistakes have been caught and repaired, so no legal voter is being denied the right to cast a ballot. But in the spirit of offering solutions, weve come up with one that should satisfy all the people: Purge the voting rolls of all voters after the election in November. Thats right, get rid of everybody. Make everyone reregister to vote starting in January, making them prove that they are American citizens. That would clear the voting rolls of those who are ineligible. It would also clear the rolls of those who registered years ago but dont bother to vote. Chances are, they wouldnt take the time to go back and register again. Think back to recent elections. In some cases the turnout is less than 20 percent of registered voters. If its around 35 percent, its considered an average turnout. If its 50 percent or higher, its a record-setting turnout. Well, what about the 50 percent or more who dont turn out? If they werent on the voter rolls, it would speed up time at the polls, make sure that the voters are legal, and maybe the turnouts would be around 80 or 90 percent or so. At one time, there was a rule that if you didnt vote for a certain amount of time, your name was automatically purged. We always thought that was a good rule. But for some reason it no longer exists, and now the names of those who dont vote are on the list, gathering dust, so to speak. So lets start over with a clean slate of voters, so those who are eligible to vote have an easier time of it, and those who are ineligible or too lazy to vote can just stay home where theyll usually complain about who gets elected. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Purge everyone and start from scratch Was that really a major golf event? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Walking in Oak RunPlease let me offer a walkers perspective to the Oak Run Boulevard controversy and a possible solution which would satisfy both walkers and motorists. I have lived in Oak Run for seven happy years. We chose this community because all the recreational facilities are within waking distance although you cannot access them without traversing the boulevard. Also, the close proximity to stores and medical facilities that are on S.R. 200 where there are sidewalks. We are a one-car family, electing not to degradate our environment with unnecessary use of polluting vehicles. It is impossible to leave my neighborhood and get to Palm Grove for the exercise room or classes offered almost daily at the auditorium without navigating the boulevard. The Island Club and the swimming pools also require a trip on the beautiful road. To deny me access to activities to maintain my health which I, like all others pay for in my amenities fee, is unfair. To deny me access to my doctors, dentists or lab facilities across 200 on days I do not have a car is unconscionable. I walk where I need to go. Most drivers put on their signals and move over to the next lane. When drivers are not able or unwilling to share the road, I move quickly onto the grass. The newly posted signs are facing traffic. They say walking here is prohibited. Walking the correct way facing traffic you do not see the signs, so I am not in violation. Motorists, please move over if you are able. No one wants to deliberately hurt another resident. A solution that would please both camps and also add to Mr. Ghumanns living legacy would be to construct an asphalt walking path parallel to the boulevard. It would be a gift to the residents reminiscent of OTOWs Mr. Colens development of Shalom Park on Southwest 80th Avenue. Until then, fellow walkers, pay attention, be alert to the traffic we face. Be prepared to move out of the way of anyone who may not see you on the back roads as well as on our lovely boulevard. Peggy Gunter Oak RunBills and taxesHave you looked closely, at a copy of any of your bills, lately? One of my bills had an increase, and I decided to check it out. What I discover during that perusal was astonishing. There are ten, yes 10 separate taxes on the bill. They are the following amounts: .98,1.14, .66, .43, .11, .21, .22, .18, .50, 1.07. No big deal. The total is only $5.40 per bill, $5.50 per calculator. This is how they are nickel and diming us to death. The talk is now of a government charge on every deposit, and withdrawal to your bank account. Where, or when does it end? Will they ever run out of ideas as to where to pile on another tax? One other thought. How, much does it cost to process an .11 tax? Printing material, shipping, handling, manpower, fuel, equipment, etc.? These things boggle the mind. When is an insatiable government satiated? Next month there may be 12 taxes on the bill. Mean to keep an eye on that one. Other bills have taxes, they are fewer in number. TAX, TAX, TAX. We need a tax anthem, anyone have a ditty in their portfolio? D.I. Larson Ocala READER OPINIONS INVITED The South Marion Citizen is looking for volunteer correspondents for the following areas: Palm Cay, Pine Run, Spruce Creek North, Spruce Creek Preserve. If interested, please contact the editor. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MRMC and Its supportersIm constantly reading about what people want to do to Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC), and not one of them knows what they are talking about. The only person making any sense, other than the professionals who are managing the hospital, has been Kulbar Ghumman. Hes been on the board long enough, and has the experience, to discuss the hospitals needs intelligently. Ive said it before and Ill say it here again, lawyers make very poor board members on any board. Ive attended enough MRMC board meetings to hear them speak with little in a positive nature. Theres no one on the board with a hospital management background, and that includes doctors. They would be the last to be selected, because in the back of their minds, their own interests come first. Plus, just because a person owns a business doesnt make them an authority on hospitals. During the few times Ive spoken at the hospital board meetings, I mentioned that in years past, I audited whats now MRMC, so many time Ive forgotten the number. Many years ago when I was a member of the Florida Hospital Association as well as the Florida Osteopathic Hospital Association, and it was an understanding, that doctors and lawyers were not the best hospital board members. I dont know about Indian chiefs, maybe we should check with the Seminoles.

In addition, Ive been a Blue Cross and Medicare fraud, auditor, Executive Director of the Florida Nursing Home Association, member of the Florida Hospital Accountants Association, Secretary of the Eastern division of the Florida Hospital Association and finally Assistant Administrator of Ormond Beach Memorial Hospital for Finance and Development, when it first opened. I also lobbied the Florida Legislature, when then State Senator Lawton Chiles sponsored my three bills in the State Senate, and they all passed both houses. Im not lobbying to get on the MRMC board, but at least I could help the professionals who know how a hospital should be run. Now, for the problem, and Ive addressed it before in the newspaper and at MRMC board meetings. If the hospital wants to raise funds it should be through a 1/2 cent sales tax. A one (1) mill tax on property will not pass. You must realize, that a great portion of the Marion County population are retirees, and theyre not going to hold still for a one (1) mill increase on their property taxes, I know I wont. A sales tax of 1/2 of one percent is the most fair, as all the people of Marion County should pay their fair share. The one (1) mill issue is doomed to failure so forget it now before its too late and try the logical approach. There are those who will say the sales tax will not provide enough money for MRMC, and it will have to be distributed to other areas as well. Now, thats where lawyers come into play. The sales tax should be for MRMC only. As an afterthought, all totaled, Ive lived in this north central Florida area for over 30 years and it seems the civic leaders still dont get it. Bill Ford OcalaOff the messageThe Republicans are experts at taking the president off message and changing the subject to their interests in what they believe and what they want to talk about. Why does the president allow the Repub-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 licans to frame and control the issues of the day in their talking points and not allow him to talk about job creation. Please, Mr. President, dont just talk about jobs for Americans but explain day after day how to put the unemployed back to work with programs that help our countries workforce. Have the Democrats in the House and Senate submit bills to work on the infrastructure, the highways, the bridges, the energy crisis, the water crisis, the reforestation of our national parks just to name a few. If you are forceful enough and talk about jobs on a daily basis, the voting public may just begin to believe you. When you allow the Republicans to set the issues that they want you to talk about, you lose. The American people are not interested in your sidebar discussions with the Republicans unless they result in jobs for the people. This is the issue of the day. Dont get distracted with the lies from the far right. Yes you must point these falsehoods out but let the voting public know to relate the fact that these lies about you are just a distraction to change the subject. You made a mistake in your first year in office by trying to work with the hateful leadership of the Republican party but they have made their message clear. Now it is time to make your message clear and let the Republicans know that their anti-American ideas have not worked in the past and you are not going to listen to their garbage now. You are the only one who was elected president in the last election and if you want to keep your job to take care of the people, you must put America back to work.

She worked her way up to being a supervisor in that capacity and that is where she met her first husband, Sid Resnick. Sid was a naval officer during the war. Following the war the couple married and Harriet had two sons. They moved to Washington D.C. where Sids naval career had taken him and then moved back to Levittown N.Y. to settle down. Allan Resnick, Harriets oldest son, attended NYU and enrolled in the ROTC program. He worked his way up to the rank of colonel when he retired. He currently works advising the government on logistics and planning. Harriets second son, Lloyd, attended Dowling University and became a successful Social Studies teacher. Unfortunately, Lloyd passed away in 2010. During the Korean War, Harriet and Sid got a divorce. Moving back to Massapequa, she met her next door neighbor, Carl Scarpino. Carl and Harriet were soon married and Carl became like a father to the two boys. He always had time to nurture and love them, making sure they had their bar mitzvahs, graduations and other milestones of life celebrated in style. While Carl worked at Republic Aviation, Harriet opened her own gift and novelty store. She had majored in art at the University of Syracuse, so the shop was just an extension of her talents. She specialized in wholesale retail and party plans. When her business was struck by fire, she decided it was time to retire. Harriet had always been active in politics. She was first inspired by Harry Truman and worked on his campaign. She liked the mans straight forward style and honesty. It was a style she adopted as her own and has developed and maintained through out her life. Since that time, she has worked locally and nationally on every campaign for the Democratic Party. She takes pride in the fact that she was able to change the political affiliation of her home town, Massapequa. When first she moved back there, the Democrats were 20 percent of the voters while the Republicans were 80 percent. Because of her activism, by the time she left, it was exactly the opposite. Most admired in Harriets eyes as presidents were John Kennedy and Jimmy Carter. She states that history will prove Jimmy Carter was one of our greatest presidents. When asked what she admired both about the two men she answered, Their youth; their love of people and feeling for the people. They cared about the man on the street. Early on in her retirement, when Cherrywood was in its infancy, Harriet worked with the On Top of the World Democratic Club. This was due to her husband Carls encouragement. Before long, as more and more people moved into our community, Harriet was urged by the Party to start a Democratic Club here in Cherrywood. Eagerly Harriet accepted the challenge and began by serving refreshments at the meetings. She compared it to entertaining in her own home. If you came to my house, I would serve you food so I did the same at our meetings. The hallmarks of her meetings were that there would be no smears allowed and all meetings would be open. She believes that people must have open minds and listen to all sides of an argument to be well informed. Harriet had to fight some in the Democratic Organization on these points but her indomitable spirit won out. She credits the growth of the party to these policies. Since its inception, Harriet has been the enthusiastic and energetic president of the Democratic Club. Undaunted by the passing of her husband nearly 12 years ago, she has continued on for these many years. In October of last year, Harriet began experiencing health problems of her own. Currently she is recovering at TimberRidge. Her good friend Ken Beech has been assisting her by providing support and encouragement. Ken is the vice president of the club, and maintains Harriets high standard of communication and leadership in her absence. In spite of her hardships and illness, Harriet is still a feisty, humorous, and lovely woman with an unbeatable spirit. She loves life and people; easily cultivating friends of all political bents and views. She still laughs easily and often. When asked what she considered the most important thing in life was she replied emphatically, Voting! Harriet continued by stating, Voting is a priceless right no matter whether youre Democrat, Republican or Independent! It is a privilege. In addition to her work with the Democratic Club and Democrat Party, Harriet served for 11 years on the 200 Coalition. When she was active there used to be more than 100 members but participation has dwindled since that time. This is a disappointment to Harriet. On a personal note, your correspondent interviewed Harriet at TimberRidge. She expressed her heartfelt gratitude to all of her friends and neighbors for their support; phone calls; visits and prayers. Please thank all the wonderful people who have called and sent cards, she told me. She has on her bed a stuffed elephant, given to her by some of her Republican friends of which she has many. With her unique personality; unflinching determination and fantastic sense of humor, Harriet is indeed an asset to Cherrywood. We wish her a speedy and complete recovery.From Your Reporter I would like to take a moment to send out a special thank you to two individuals who contributed to this weeks column. Ken Beech accompanied me to TimberRidge for the interview with Harriet Scarpino (See Spotlight) and was a great help. Next a special Thanks to Bobbie Letendre for suggesting a Welcoming Committee for Cherrywood. (See article Newcomers to Cherrywood above). Good ideas are always welcome and I appreciate your thoughtful input.

neighbors to hear some top quality professional and amateur musicians do their thing. If youve never been to an Accordion Club session, you are invited to come on out and see for yourself how much fun it is. Put on your dancing shoes; grab some snacks, beverages and your friends; and then plan for an evening of pure enjoyment. Bingo Record SetBingo night at Cherrywood is full of fast paced excitement and friendly fellowship. Last Thursday night, during one of the special games, there were seven winners; the most that have ever won a single game. When they all yelled Bingo! at the same time, there was a mixture of laughter and surprise. There were so many that all of the individual winners had to stand up to be recognized while their cards were verified. As always it was a fun time for the 70 or more people that showed up. The crowd is a little smaller during the summer months when our snow birds are gone but Bingo still rates high on the entertainment meter for all the participants. Thanks to our volunteers for all their hard work and for making Thursday night Bingo at Cherrywood the best place to have fun; excitement and friendship. Crochet & Knitting ClubMembers continue to work on various projects to be distributed to charities. We dont take a summer break, so donations are always appreciated. If you have yarn, polyester stuffing for toys, books, or other supplies that you no longer need, please consider donating them for our projects. These items can be dropped off any time at the clubhouse in Geris office, or wed love to meet and thank you, so come to our regular meeting time on Friday between 1 and 3 p.m. At present our project is creating a Granny Square afghan to be raffled off at the craft show in Cherrywood to be held in October. Several members are participating by making various colorful squares which will be assembled and completed by member Stevie Pickrell. Proceeds will go to a local childrens charity, as yet to be determined. If youd like to learn to crochet or knit, we have ladies who are very willing to teach. It is a rewarding hobby and keeps your mind and hands busy. You are invited to come out and observe our group any Friday. Theres always a pot of coffee and yummy goodies to share.Article provided by Edna Fazio Newcomers to CherrywoodAre you new to Cherrywood? You arent alone. We average between two to five new families every month moving into our community and we want to welcome you. We have a new committee that would like to personally invite you to attend the activities; to give you information about some of the many services here in Marion County and to let you know that you are a welcome addition to Cherrywood. Suzi Everlove, Genevieve Downs and Rich Becotte are on our welcoming committee and they would love to pay you a visit. Just contact Geri at the office with your name and phone number so they can call you to set up an appointment. If you would like to be on the committee or if you know of anyone new to our community, please contact your humble reporter at urperssec@yahoo.com. Remember, strangers are just friends we havent met yet.Movie Night at CherrywoodTuesday night, July 3, the Social Committee again lights up the big screen in the clubhouse for Movie Night at Cherrywood. This months feature is Marvel Comics hero Captain America. Action and romance are an integral part of this feature staring Samuel L. Jackson; Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving. Free popcorn and lemonade are provided but if you have a preferred beverage and/or snack, bring it along. 7 p.m. is show time and its free so come a little early to insure you get a great seat. What could be better than a night of class entertainment surrounded by friends and family members? See you at Movie Night.Blood Drive ComingOn July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., the bloodmobile will be parked outside the clubhouse to take your donations of life giving blood. Its quick and easy to give blood in a sterile atmosphere surrounded by professionals who can walk you through the process step by step. First time donors are especially welcome and our repeat givers are greatly appreciated. On a personal note, dont let me lose my bet. We desperately need someone to volunteer to handle the blood donation program here at Cherrywood. This requires only a few hours of your time every couple of months to keep our blood donations flowing smoothly. I made a bet with Geri that one or two of our residents would step up and take over this worthwhile project before July 12. Im counting on the good hearted people who make up Cherrywood to jump in take charge. Call Geri today and volunteer. Flu ShotsFlu Shots will be available in the clubhouse in September and October this year. The details and dates are being worked out so keep an eye on this column and your Chirp Newsletter. We want to make it convenient and easy to be healthy so you can enjoy all of the activities we have to offer. Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Harriet Scarpino, President of the Democratic Club of Cherrywood. Harriet has lived in Cherrywood for 16 years and was one of the first residents in our community. She is a native of Long Island and Massapequa, New York. She has a sister Doris who currently lives in South Orange, New Jersey. Another sister, Sylvia, is deceased. During the Second World War, as a young woman, she worked for the Silver Vogue Corp. Origi-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just How a person can ruin a perfectly good day OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE11 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Harriet and Ken Scarpino.

For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You continue on an upbeat cycle, and with that strong Taurean energy you should see favorable results from your hard work. A pleasant surprise awaits you in your private life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A misunderstanding needs more time to be worked out. Dont give up on it just yet. Remain open to providing explanations, if called for. Another friend offers good advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Fast action can correct a seemingly minor problem that has taken on some unexpectedly difficult aspects. Stay with it until its resolved.

The Clever Cat will soon have good reason to celebrate a job well done.

Grab a cool one, take a seat and enjoy some hot stories.BandedJust before the end to the school year, the teacher had opened the band room windows to get some needed ventilation when a large insect flew into the room. The students tried to ignore the buzzing intruder, but eventually one student, Tommy, could stand it no more. He rolled up his music book and swatted the insect and then stomped on it to ensure its fate. Is it a bee, another student asked. Nope, Tommy replied. Bee flat.For the birdsOne evening an avid bird watcher stood in his backyard and heard an owl hoot. So he thought hed give a hoot back. To his surprise and delight the bird hooted again. The next night the same scenario occurred. All summer, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife, had a chat with her next-door neighbor. My husband spends his nights calling to owls, the wife commented. Thats odd, the neighbor replied. So does my husband.Air or heir?Married life seemed to have worn him down, so he went to his doctor for a check-up.

Surfing must be a religion to some kids; they do it kneeling. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? Summer is the time when it is too hot to do the jobs it was too cold to do in winter. Gulls are named seagulls because if they were by the bay, theyd be bagels. In the winter Joes dog wears his coat, but in the summer he wears his coat and pants. While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. We recently went to a seaside resort for a change and a rest. The maid got the change and hotel got the rest. You say you saw a lot of her this summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Too muchOn their annual summer eating tour, veteran overeaters Mike and Monica were thrilled with the street vendors in Philadelphia, which allowed them to stuff their faces while they waddled from street corner to street corner. Mike, ever the joker, walked backward across Market Street with a hot dog stuck in each ear, commenting that a frank with the works sure sounded good, and thus, didnt hear Monicas anguished cry, Watch out for the hoagie car, Michael.FracturedSummer vacation was near and the teacher was trying to give her class an impression of fractions that would last until school resumed. She told them they could think of fractions at home as well as in school and gave such examples as half a sandwich, a quarter of a pie and tenth part of a dollar. At that point one little boy caught on and proudly contributed, My father came home last night with a fifth.JumpyTom was one of the last patrons to leave the local tavern one summer night, and he took his usual shortcut through the cemetery.

The guy who must have been the last to leave the tavern came down the same path, and he too tumbled in. Tom woke up as this new fellow jumped and clawed at the sides, trying futilely to climb out.

Because of this, the Shutter Bugs camera club will be meeting only once a month instead of twice. The next meeting will be in the library of the clubhouse on July 6, the first Friday of the month. The members would like to thank Dan and Joan Welch for their hospitality at our last meeting. They hosted our club for a photo shoot at their home this past week. Their property is adjacent to the pastures where horses and goats graze and we were able to get some very interesting and beautiful photos thanks to them. In addition, we would like to thank Geri for taking the time to show us how to transfer our photos onto the computer and send them to various people. Friday the 15th was a good day for the club and were looking forward to even better things in the future. Grab your camera and join us on July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse for our next field trip or technical instruction. Until fall, we will be meeting on the first Friday of the month.Accordion ClubFrom 5:30 until 9 p.m. on June 27, the music will be echoing through out the clubhouse as our Cherrywood Accordion Club musicians again bring their talent and wide variety of musical instruments to the stage.

Erics parents, Harold and Nancy Scott of Marion Landing, traveled to New York to be a part of the surprise. Also sharing in the celebration were Pastor Erics sister, Lorri Field and her husband Roger and son Jacob, as well as cousin David Gardner and his wife Donna from Canada. Pastor Eric and Deby were taken by surprise; and Eric said, I cant understand how they (his congregation) put it over on us. A video of events highlighting the 20 years of Eric and Debys service was shown, special music written and sung by members of the youth group, and presented to the family were bouquets of flowers to Deby and their daughters, Erin, Sarah, Hannah and Deborah, and basketballs for sons Josiah and Nick. Many thanks were expressed not only to Eric and Deby, but to the children for all the time away from them required by their Dads position as Pastor of Celebration Family Church. Eric and Deby were also presented with a certificate for a cruise for two in appreciation. Everyone shared a potluck luncheon afterward. It was a happy, blessed day.

LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 On May 27, Pastor Eric and Deby Scott of Celebration Family Church, Leicester, N.Y., were honored by their congregation for 20 years of service to God. Erics parents, Harold and Nancy Scott of Marion Landing, traveled to New York to be a part of the surprise. Also sharing in the celebration were Pastor Erics sister, Lorri Field and her husband Roger and son Jacob, as well as cousin David Gardner and his wife Donna from Canada. Pastor Eric and Deby were taken by surprise; and Eric said, I cant understand how they (his congregation) put it over on us. A video of events highlighting the 20 years of Eric and Debys service was shown, special music written and sung by members of the youth group, and presented to the family were bouquets of flowers to Deby and their daughters, Erin, Sarah, Hannah and Deborah, and basketballs for sons Josiah and Nick. Many thanks were expressed not only to Eric and Deby, but to the children for all the time away from them required by their Dads position as Pastor of Celebration Family Church. Eric and Deby were also presented with a certificate for a cruise for two in appreciation. Everyone shared a potluck luncheon afterward. It was a happy, blessed day.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Its hot and humid. We dont need the calendar to tell us that summer started this last Wednesday. Grab a cool one, take a seat and enjoy some hot stories.BandedJust before the end to the school year, the teacher had opened the band room windows to get some needed ventilation when a large insect flew into the room. The students tried to ignore the buzzing intruder, but eventually one student, Tommy, could stand it no more. He rolled up his music book and swatted the insect and then stomped on it to ensure its fate. Is it a bee, another student asked. Nope, Tommy replied. Bee flat.For the birdsOne evening an avid bird watcher stood in his backyard and heard an owl hoot. So he thought hed give a hoot back. To his surprise and delight the bird hooted again. The next night the same scenario occurred. All summer, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife, had a chat with her next-door neighbor. My husband spends his nights calling to owls, the wife commented. Thats odd, the neighbor replied. So does my husband.Air or heir?Married life seemed to have worn him down, so he went to his doctor for a check-up. Theres nothing radically wrong with you, the doctor said after a thorough examination, all you need is a little sun and air. Yes, I suppose youre right, said the patient, but my wifes dead set against having any children.SummertimeComputer geeks will not be competing in this years summer Olympics in London because the Olympic committee refused to add a floppy discus competition. Surfing must be a religion to some kids; they do it kneeling. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? Summer is the time when it is too hot to do the jobs it was too cold to do in winter. Gulls are named seagulls because if they were by the bay, theyd be bagels. In the winter Joes dog wears his coat, but in the summer he wears his coat and pants. While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. We recently went to a seaside resort for a change and a rest. The maid got the change and hotel got the rest. You say you saw a lot of her this summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Too muchOn their annual summer eating tour, veteran overeaters Mike and Monica were thrilled with the street vendors in Philadelphia, which allowed them to stuff their faces while they waddled from street corner to street corner. Mike, ever the joker, walked backward across Market Street with a hot dog stuck in each ear, commenting that a frank with the works sure sounded good, and thus, didnt hear Monicas anguished cry, Watch out for the hoagie car, Michael.FracturedSummer vacation was near and the teacher was trying to give her class an impression of fractions that would last until school resumed. She told them they could think of fractions at home as well as in school and gave such examples as half a sandwich, a quarter of a pie and tenth part of a dollar. At that point one little boy caught on and proudly contributed, My father came home last night with a fifth.JumpyTom was one of the last patrons to leave the local tavern one summer night, and he took his usual shortcut through the cemetery.

He was not hurt, but the hole was too deep and the ground too soft for him to climb out. He curled up in a corner to wait for daybreak and the arrival of the cemetery crew. He dozed off. The guy who must have been the last to leave the tavern came down the same path, and he too tumbled in. Tom woke up as this new fellow jumped and clawed at the sides, trying futilely to climb out. Finally, Tom said, You know, you cant get out that way. But he did.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Because of this, the Shutter Bugs camera club will be meeting only once a month instead of twice. The next meeting will be in the library of the clubhouse on July 6, the first Friday of the month. The members would like to thank Dan and Joan Welch for their hospitality at our last meeting. They hosted our club for a photo shoot at their home this past week. Their property is adjacent to the pastures where horses and goats graze and we were able to get some very interesting and beautiful photos thanks to them. In addition, we would like to thank Geri for taking the time to show us how to transfer our photos onto the computer and send them to various people. Friday the 15th was a good day for the club and were looking forward to even better things in the future. Grab your camera and join us on July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse for our next field trip or technical instruction. Until fall, we will be meeting on the first Friday of the month.Accordion ClubFrom 5:30 until 9 p.m. on June 27, the music will be echoing through out the clubhouse as our Cherrywood Accordion Club musicians again bring their talent and wide variety of musical instruments to the stage.

For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.

Continue to wait until more is available before acting on that career move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You continue on an upbeat cycle, and with that strong Taurean energy you should see favorable results from your hard work. A pleasant surprise awaits you in your private life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A misunderstanding needs more time to be worked out. Dont give up on it just yet. Remain open to providing explanations, if called for. Another friend offers good advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Fast action can correct a seemingly minor problem that has taken on some unexpectedly difficult aspects. Stay with it until its resolved. News on a more positive note is due soon. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Some snags could cause delays in those plans youre eager to see put into operation. But be patient. The Clever Cat will soon have good reason to celebrate a job well done. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let that Virgan sensitivity dissuade you from being the hardheaded realist you should be at this time. Your goals are in sight. Stay focused on them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A more positive aspect opens up, allowing you to make some important changes in a personal situation. Remember to seek balance and avoid extremes as you proceed. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good week to get out and enjoy the fine times you missed while you were so deep in those workaday projects. Be sure to share it with that special person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Work and play are in balance this week. However, expect news that could tip things toward the workplace for quite a while. But all to a good end. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youre more productive on the job than you have been in some time. Thats good. But be careful not to overlook some situations developing in your private life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been doing a lot for others (as usual). But now its time to focus on your needs, including finally going on that long-delayed trip youve been hoping to make. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Its all smoothly going on twixt you and that very special person in your life. But a colleague causes some disruption on the job that you might be called on to help settle. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to the needs of others. But youre no pushover. You would make a fine teacher, psychologist or minister. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure 000BSPK 000BMDN Wisdo Family Medicine Wisdo is Welcoming NEW PATIENTS!

neighbors to hear some top quality professional and amateur musicians do their thing. If youve never been to an Accordion Club session, you are invited to come on out and see for yourself how much fun it is. Put on your dancing shoes; grab some snacks, beverages and your friends; and then plan for an evening of pure enjoyment. Bingo Record SetBingo night at Cherrywood is full of fast paced excitement and friendly fellowship. Last Thursday night, during one of the special games, there were seven winners; the most that have ever won a single game. When they all yelled Bingo! at the same time, there was a mixture of laughter and surprise. There were so many that all of the individual winners had to stand up to be recognized while their cards were verified. As always it was a fun time for the 70 or more people that showed up. The crowd is a little smaller during the summer months when our snow birds are gone but Bingo still rates high on the entertainment meter for all the participants. Thanks to our volunteers for all their hard work and for making Thursday night Bingo at Cherrywood the best place to have fun; excitement and friendship. Crochet & Knitting ClubMembers continue to work on various projects to be distributed to charities. We dont take a summer break, so donations are always appreciated. If you have yarn, polyester stuffing for toys, books, or other supplies that you no longer need, please consider donating them for our projects. These items can be dropped off any time at the clubhouse in Geris office, or wed love to meet and thank you, so come to our regular meeting time on Friday between 1 and 3 p.m. At present our project is creating a Granny Square afghan to be raffled off at the craft show in Cherrywood to be held in October. Several members are participating by making various colorful squares which will be assembled and completed by member Stevie Pickrell. Proceeds will go to a local childrens charity, as yet to be determined. If youd like to learn to crochet or knit, we have ladies who are very willing to teach. It is a rewarding hobby and keeps your mind and hands busy. You are invited to come out and observe our group any Friday. Theres always a pot of coffee and yummy goodies to share.Article provided by Edna Fazio Newcomers to CherrywoodAre you new to Cherrywood? You arent alone.

Its quick and easy to give blood in a sterile atmosphere surrounded by professionals who can walk you through the process step by step. First time donors are especially welcome and our repeat givers are greatly appreciated. On a personal note, dont let me lose my bet. We desperately need someone to volunteer to handle the blood donation program here at Cherrywood. This requires only a few hours of your time every couple of months to keep our blood donations flowing smoothly. I made a bet with Geri that one or two of our residents would step up and take over this worthwhile project before July 12. Im counting on the good hearted people who make up Cherrywood to jump in take charge. Call Geri today and volunteer. Flu ShotsFlu Shots will be available in the clubhouse in September and October this year. The details and dates are being worked out so keep an eye on this column and your Chirp Newsletter. We want to make it convenient and easy to be healthy so you can enjoy all of the activities we have to offer. Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we spotlight a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to our community. This weeks spotlight shines on Harriet Scarpino, President of the Democratic Club of Cherrywood. Harriet has lived in Cherrywood for 16 years and was one of the first residents in our community. She is a native of Long Island and Massapequa, New York. She has a sister Doris who currently lives in South Orange, New Jersey. Another sister, Sylvia, is deceased. During the Second World War, as a young woman, she worked for the Silver Vogue Corp. Origi-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just How a person can ruin a perfectly good day OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE11 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Harriet and Ken Scarpino.

In addition, Ive been a Blue Cross and Medicare fraud, auditor, Executive Director of the Florida Nursing Home Association, member of the Florida Hospital Accountants Association, Secretary of the Eastern division of the Florida Hospital Association and finally Assistant Administrator of Ormond Beach Memorial Hospital for Finance and Development, when it first opened. I also lobbied the Florida Legislature, when then State Senator Lawton Chiles sponsored my three bills in the State Senate, and they all passed both houses. Im not lobbying to get on the MRMC board, but at least I could help the professionals who know how a hospital should be run. Now, for the problem, and Ive addressed it before in the newspaper and at MRMC board meetings. If the hospital wants to raise funds it should be through a 1/2 cent sales tax. A one (1) mill tax on property will not pass. You must realize, that a great portion of the Marion County population are retirees, and theyre not going to hold still for a one (1) mill increase on their property taxes, I know I wont. A sales tax of 1/2 of one percent is the most fair, as all the people of Marion County should pay their fair share. The one (1) mill issue is doomed to failure so forget it now before its too late and try the logical approach. There are those who will say the sales tax will not provide enough money for MRMC, and it will have to be distributed to other areas as well. Now, thats where lawyers come into play. The sales tax should be for MRMC only. As an afterthought, all totaled, Ive lived in this north central Florida area for over 30 years and it seems the civic leaders still dont get it. Bill Ford OcalaOff the messageThe Republicans are experts at taking the president off message and changing the subject to their interests in what they believe and what they want to talk about. Why does the president allow the Repub-Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 licans to frame and control the issues of the day in their talking points and not allow him to talk about job creation. Please, Mr. President, dont just talk about jobs for Americans but explain day after day how to put the unemployed back to work with programs that help our countries workforce. Have the Democrats in the House and Senate submit bills to work on the infrastructure, the highways, the bridges, the energy crisis, the water crisis, the reforestation of our national parks just to name a few. If you are forceful enough and talk about jobs on a daily basis, the voting public may just begin to believe you. When you allow the Republicans to set the issues that they want you to talk about, you lose. The American people are not interested in your sidebar discussions with the Republicans unless they result in jobs for the people. This is the issue of the day. Dont get distracted with the lies from the far right. Yes you must point these falsehoods out but let the voting public know to relate the fact that these lies about you are just a distraction to change the subject. You made a mistake in your first year in office by trying to work with the hateful leadership of the Republican party but they have made their message clear. Now it is time to make your message clear and let the Republicans know that their anti-American ideas have not worked in the past and you are not going to listen to their garbage now. You are the only one who was elected president in the last election and if you want to keep your job to take care of the people, you must put America back to work.

She worked her way up to being a supervisor in that capacity and that is where she met her first husband, Sid Resnick. Sid was a naval officer during the war. Following the war the couple married and Harriet had two sons. They moved to Washington D.C. where Sids naval career had taken him and then moved back to Levittown N.Y. to settle down. Allan Resnick, Harriets oldest son, attended NYU and enrolled in the ROTC program. He worked his way up to the rank of colonel when he retired. He currently works advising the government on logistics and planning. Harriets second son, Lloyd, attended Dowling University and became a successful Social Studies teacher. Unfortunately, Lloyd passed away in 2010. During the Korean War, Harriet and Sid got a divorce. Moving back to Massapequa, she met her next door neighbor, Carl Scarpino. Carl and Harriet were soon married and Carl became like a father to the two boys. He always had time to nurture and love them, making sure they had their bar mitzvahs, graduations and other milestones of life celebrated in style. While Carl worked at Republic Aviation, Harriet opened her own gift and novelty store. She had majored in art at the University of Syracuse, so the shop was just an extension of her talents. She specialized in wholesale retail and party plans. When her business was struck by fire, she decided it was time to retire. Harriet had always been active in politics. She was first inspired by Harry Truman and worked on his campaign. She liked the mans straight forward style and honesty. It was a style she adopted as her own and has developed and maintained through out her life. Since that time, she has worked locally and nationally on every campaign for the Democratic Party. She takes pride in the fact that she was able to change the political affiliation of her home town, Massapequa. When first she moved back there, the Democrats were 20 percent of the voters while the Republicans were 80 percent. Because of her activism, by the time she left, it was exactly the opposite. Most admired in Harriets eyes as presidents were John Kennedy and Jimmy Carter. She states that history will prove Jimmy Carter was one of our greatest presidents. When asked what she admired both about the two men she answered, Their youth; their love of people and feeling for the people. They cared about the man on the street. Early on in her retirement, when Cherrywood was in its infancy, Harriet worked with the On Top of the World Democratic Club. This was due to her husband Carls encouragement. Before long, as more and more people moved into our community, Harriet was urged by the Party to start a Democratic Club here in Cherrywood. Eagerly Harriet accepted the challenge and began by serving refreshments at the meetings. She compared it to entertaining in her own home. If you came to my house, I would serve you food so I did the same at our meetings. The hallmarks of her meetings were that there would be no smears allowed and all meetings would be open. She believes that people must have open minds and listen to all sides of an argument to be well informed. Harriet had to fight some in the Democratic Organization on these points but her indomitable spirit won out. She credits the growth of the party to these policies. Since its inception, Harriet has been the enthusiastic and energetic president of the Democratic Club. Undaunted by the passing of her husband nearly 12 years ago, she has continued on for these many years. In October of last year, Harriet began experiencing health problems of her own. Currently she is recovering at TimberRidge. Her good friend Ken Beech has been assisting her by providing support and encouragement. Ken is the vice president of the club, and maintains Harriets high standard of communication and leadership in her absence. In spite of her hardships and illness, Harriet is still a feisty, humorous, and lovely woman with an unbeatable spirit. She loves life and people; easily cultivating friends of all political bents and views. She still laughs easily and often. When asked what she considered the most important thing in life was she replied emphatically, Voting! Harriet continued by stating, Voting is a priceless right no matter whether youre Democrat, Republican or Independent! It is a privilege. In addition to her work with the Democratic Club and Democrat Party, Harriet served for 11 years on the 200 Coalition. When she was active there used to be more than 100 members but participation has dwindled since that time. This is a disappointment to Harriet. On a personal note, your correspondent interviewed Harriet at TimberRidge. She expressed her heartfelt gratitude to all of her friends and neighbors for their support; phone calls; visits and prayers. Please thank all the wonderful people who have called and sent cards, she told me. She has on her bed a stuffed elephant, given to her by some of her Republican friends of which she has many. With her unique personality; unflinching determination and fantastic sense of humor, Harriet is indeed an asset to Cherrywood. We wish her a speedy and complete recovery.From Your Reporter I would like to take a moment to send out a special thank you to two individuals who contributed to this weeks column. Ken Beech accompanied me to TimberRidge for the interview with Harriet Scarpino (See Spotlight) and was a great help. Next a special Thanks to Bobbie Letendre for suggesting a Welcoming Committee for Cherrywood. (See article Newcomers to Cherrywood above). Good ideas are always welcome and I appreciate your thoughtful input.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 22, 2012 No one can ever accuse me of being a golfer. I have played one round of golf in my life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I mention it was a nine-hole course? That was back when I was 16 and my dad tried to teach me on a simple little course at a place called Mystic Islands, New Jersey. My dad was good at a lot of things, but he didnt succeed at this one, although it probably wasnt his fault. Thats why Ive grown up rarely watching golf on television, except for the majors and the TPC at Sawgrass, which I personally attended once. Last weekend we had a major, the U.S. Open, played somewhere near San Francisco on the West Coast. The way the golfers played, it didnt seem like a major. No one was under par. If I want to watch a bunch of golfers who cant break par, I can go sit out near the 18th hole at the Municipal Golf Course in Ocala. Turning on the U.S. Open this year was like turning on the Super Bowl, and instead getting a Pop Warner game. I could just envision golfers all over the country saying, I can do that. This tournament ends on Fathers Day, the third Sunday in June. Whats the matter? Couldnt they find a place where June means summer weather? Players were wearing sweatshirts and other paraphernalia to keep warm. On Sunday, a sea fog was rolling in off the Pacific to give the golfers just another distraction. Of course, when I bothered to listen, the commentators were gushing positives about the course, but I would imagine the USGA would make sure they were never heard from again if they dared to criticize anything. There also seems to be some sort of controversy surrounding Johnny Miller, who was commenting for NBC. Im not sure why, but then again I try not to listen too much to the analysts, who are usually wrong. One of the big stories over the weekend was about a 17-year-old kid from California, wearing a University of Texas shirt, who was actually in contention. He faded on Sunday and didnt even end up as the low amateur. Then there was Tiger Woods, who was in the lead briefly during the first two days, then crashed and burned on the weekend. When they interviewed Woods after Sundays round, he said that there were a lot of positives he could take away from his failure to win another major. Could have fooled me. Some guy named Webb Simpson won the tournament. It finished on Sunday after 10 p.m., and, well, when you get up before sunrise thats well past bedtime. I saw a tape Monday of the posttournament interview, which was crashed by someone. As the intruder was being hauled away, Simpson commented, Hope you enjoy the jail cell, buddy. At least this guy Simpson had a good sense of humor. So what comes next? Why, its the British Open, which is usually played on a course thats a code enforcement officers dream, one with knee-high weeds. Would it be too much to ask that the Brits play this tourney on a course that owns a lawn mower?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Weve all been hearing a lot lately about voter purges, where the state is trying to make sure that all voters are legitimately registered and are American citizens qualified to vote. For some reason, some people think this is a bad thing. They dont see to care that some votes are being cast illegally. It comes back to that old clich: What part of the word illegal dont you understand? Yes, there have been a few mistakes. But as far as we know, these mistakes have been caught and repaired, so no legal voter is being denied the right to cast a ballot. But in the spirit of offering solutions, weve come up with one that should satisfy all the people: Purge the voting rolls of all voters after the election in November. Thats right, get rid of everybody. Make everyone reregister to vote starting in January, making them prove that they are American citizens. That would clear the voting rolls of those who are ineligible. It would also clear the rolls of those who registered years ago but dont bother to vote. Chances are, they wouldnt take the time to go back and register again. Think back to recent elections. In some cases the turnout is less than 20 percent of registered voters. If its around 35 percent, its considered an average turnout. If its 50 percent or higher, its a record-setting turnout. Well, what about the 50 percent or more who dont turn out? If they werent on the voter rolls, it would speed up time at the polls, make sure that the voters are legal, and maybe the turnouts would be around 80 or 90 percent or so. At one time, there was a rule that if you didnt vote for a certain amount of time, your name was automatically purged. We always thought that was a good rule. But for some reason it no longer exists, and now the names of those who dont vote are on the list, gathering dust, so to speak. So lets start over with a clean slate of voters, so those who are eligible to vote have an easier time of it, and those who are ineligible or too lazy to vote can just stay home where theyll usually complain about who gets elected. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Purge everyone and start from scratch Was that really a major golf event? Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Walking in Oak RunPlease let me offer a walkers perspective to the Oak Run Boulevard controversy and a possible solution which would satisfy both walkers and motorists. I have lived in Oak Run for seven happy years. We chose this community because all the recreational facilities are within waking distance although you cannot access them without traversing the boulevard. Also, the close proximity to stores and medical facilities that are on S.R. 200 where there are sidewalks. We are a one-car family, electing not to degradate our environment with unnecessary use of polluting vehicles. It is impossible to leave my neighborhood and get to Palm Grove for the exercise room or classes offered almost daily at the auditorium without navigating the boulevard. The Island Club and the swimming pools also require a trip on the beautiful road. To deny me access to activities to maintain my health which I, like all others pay for in my amenities fee, is unfair. To deny me access to my doctors, dentists or lab facilities across 200 on days I do not have a car is unconscionable. I walk where I need to go. Most drivers put on their signals and move over to the next lane. When drivers are not able or unwilling to share the road, I move quickly onto the grass. The newly posted signs are facing traffic. They say walking here is prohibited. Walking the correct way facing traffic you do not see the signs, so I am not in violation. Motorists, please move over if you are able. No one wants to deliberately hurt another resident. A solution that would please both camps and also add to Mr. Ghumanns living legacy would be to construct an asphalt walking path parallel to the boulevard. It would be a gift to the residents reminiscent of OTOWs Mr. Colens development of Shalom Park on Southwest 80th Avenue. Until then, fellow walkers, pay attention, be alert to the traffic we face. Be prepared to move out of the way of anyone who may not see you on the back roads as well as on our lovely boulevard. Peggy Gunter Oak RunBills and taxesHave you looked closely, at a copy of any of your bills, lately? One of my bills had an increase, and I decided to check it out. What I discover during that perusal was astonishing. There are ten, yes 10 separate taxes on the bill. They are the following amounts: .98,1.14, .66, .43, .11, .21, .22, .18, .50, 1.07. No big deal. The total is only $5.40 per bill, $5.50 per calculator. This is how they are nickel and diming us to death. The talk is now of a government charge on every deposit, and withdrawal to your bank account. Where, or when does it end? Will they ever run out of ideas as to where to pile on another tax? One other thought. How, much does it cost to process an .11 tax? Printing material, shipping, handling, manpower, fuel, equipment, etc.? These things boggle the mind. When is an insatiable government satiated? Next month there may be 12 taxes on the bill. Mean to keep an eye on that one. Other bills have taxes, they are fewer in number. TAX, TAX, TAX. We need a tax anthem, anyone have a ditty in their portfolio? D.I. Larson Ocala READER OPINIONS INVITED The South Marion Citizen is looking for volunteer correspondents for the following areas: Palm Cay, Pine Run, Spruce Creek North, Spruce Creek Preserve. If interested, please contact the editor. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MRMC and Its supportersIm constantly reading about what people want to do to Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC), and not one of them knows what they are talking about. The only person making any sense, other than the professionals who are managing the hospital, has been Kulbar Ghumman. Hes been on the board long enough, and has the experience, to discuss the hospitals needs intelligently. Ive said it before and Ill say it here again, lawyers make very poor board members on any board. Ive attended enough MRMC board meetings to hear them speak with little in a positive nature. Theres no one on the board with a hospital management background, and that includes doctors. They would be the last to be selected, because in the back of their minds, their own interests come first. Plus, just because a person owns a business doesnt make them an authority on hospitals. During the few times Ive spoken at the hospital board meetings, I mentioned that in years past, I audited whats now MRMC, so many time Ive forgotten the number. Many years ago when I was a member of the Florida Hospital Association as well as the Florida Osteopathic Hospital Association, and it was an understanding, that doctors and lawyers were not the best hospital board members. I dont know about Indian chiefs, maybe we should check with the Seminoles.

Know what your manual says about (or at least know where it explains) Exposure Compensation, Bracketing, Histograms, White Balance, and Depth of Field. If you do not understand what the manual is telling you, senior club members will help you. You must have your manual or a book dedicated to your camera and know where to look for the information. Please do not expect the senior photographers to be familiar with your camera. They will be able to look at your manual and explain what it says to you but they should not be expected to look up the material for you. For more Information about the Oak Run Photography Club please see our blog at orphotoclub.blogspot.com/.Oak Run Travel Wow! That was what our travelers said about the production of New York Nights at the Show Palace on June 10. The cast performed just as you would expect to see on Broadway. Everyone wanted more of the classical pop music from those beautiful voices! The Nov. 16 tour to Rediscovering Real Florida with Eleanor and Rich Feltenburger as hosts and also Wonders of Winter Park and Treasures of Tiffany on Nov. 30 with Rudy and Delores Frey as hosts have turned out to be very popular. As a result we will be doing both of them again in 2013 so be on the lookout for the sale dates in the Oak Run Travel brochure. A number of our trips this year have been sell-outs with a wait list. Sometimes when we get enough on the list we can get another bus going so never be reluctant to get on the wait list for any trip. It helps us to help you take the trips you really like. Of course, even without another bus you can often still make the trip due to someone having to cancel. So always get on the wait list, you have 2 good reasons to do so.Royal Oaks Mens GolfIts good to be back in action again after two successive weeks of cancellations due to rain. Needless to say, we needed the rain more than the golf at this time, so not too many complained about the wet weather. I might add it really greened up the golf course. The game on June 15 was the usual three best net. Thirty seven players participated, which is good considering the time of year. And the winners were First with a 194, Bill Staiger, George Gariepy, John ONeill, and Paul Valois; Second with a 195, Dick Blackburn, Bob Gildea, and Duke Slayton. Third was a tie between three teams with a score of 200. These were Emmett Dowling, Charlie Elder, Sam Owens, and Fred West; Hal Loomis, Ed Simnowitz, Tom Ducz, and Larry Soine; and Dale Wurzburger, Virgil Hein, Chuck Engel, and Tom Morris Closest to the pin were Bill Start, Mickey Klein, John Wargo, and Mike Madill. A beautiful day on a good golf course what more could one ask for. See you next week.

Each player was given a small flag. On each flag was the number of strokes the player could make before planting her flag in the ground. That number of strokes was the course par of 72 plus the players handicap. Thus someone with a handicap of 25 would plant their flag after taking 97 strokes (72+25). The winners were: 1st PlaceJT Lemasters whose flag made it back to the First Hole by the Green!, 2nd PlaceSylvia Zappia, 3rd PlaceSalita Timmermeyer, 4th PlaceCarolyn Collins. All three of these members also finished 18 holes and made it back to the fairway of the first hole! Nice play ladies!! Tied for 5th place by holing their ball on the 18th hole were Maureen Edwards, Judy Klein, Sheila Adams, and Beverly Lassiter. Patty Dougherty was Closest to the Pin.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 14 we played Tee to Green and 1/2 handicap. There were only 8 players. Everybody seems to be away, so we had only three winners. Tied in first Sam Timmermeyer and BJ Lassiter, third Rae Stover. We hope to have a better turn out next week.Mr. Codys Corner Id really like to know if golfers shouldnt wear two pair of pants.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The British mania for all things Gypsy has resulted in a blockbuster reality series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and four books on the subject. The first to reach America is Gypsy Boy, a grim yet often funny look at Romany lifestyle. Mikey Walsh, a pseudonym because a price is still on his head, is born into a clan of bare-knuckle fighters. His own father is reputed to be a Black Knight of raging firepower. Unfortunately for Mikey he is slightly built and has no interest in the blood sport. That means that from a very tender age he is beaten without letup in order to turn him into a champion, which from the start is a lost cause. He lacks the gene that makes Gypsy men born brawlers who end all festive occasions like weddings in violence. Mikeys salvation lies in his gentler mother and his constant companion older sister Frankie. And between horrible thrashings theres much to enjoy in this coming-of-age memoir. There is, for instance, Gypsy bad taste in fashion like velour tracksuits and stilettos with a tiny gold scale model of the Eiffel Tower welded into each heel. More comedy is invoked when Mikey tags along on some hilarious shoplifting trips with a kleptomaniac aunt who stuffs piles of merchandise under her fur coat. Along the way Walsh dispels myths such as Gypsy curses. There are none, and the notion that Gypsies are poor is false as well. Far from it, he says. Their trailer encampments are well furnished and unhealthy food such as fried take-out is plentiful. Moreover, many have luxury cars. But they shun the outside world, refusing to send their children to school unless forced to. Highly insulated, Gypsies as a whole suspect all outsiders. Despite the brutal circumstances of his childhood, which included sexual abuse from an uncle, Walsh often waxes nostalgic about the life he was forced to leave at age 15, knowing that custom dictated he could never return once he left. In London he finds himself and comes out of the closet. When his father learns hes gay, he puts a bounty on his head. Still, the author concludes by saying I wouldnt change my life. I am proud of my race, and what I am. You can take the boy away from the Gypsies, but you cant take the Gypsy out of the boy.

Upcoming activities at Moose Lodge JOB FAIRCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Jonathan H Holling, representing the U.S. in Quebec, Canada, along with 17 other entrants from the U.S. at the 2012 Volvo Bromont, won CCI3 Three Day Event and The Todd Sandler Challenge on Sunday, June 10. Holling led the CCI3 division from beginning to end riding Connie Hollings eight-year-old Trakehner gelding Downtown Harrison. Of the initial 18 combinations in the division, 12 completed the event which concluded with the show jumping phase. This is an Ocala rider, Ocala horse and Ocala trainer, said Jons wife, Jenn Holling. Holling, entering the arena last, had two rails in hand and he used them both. An early knock down at the second fence, a vertical, was followed by another vertical down at number five. Holling managed to leave the rest of the jumps in their cups, adding eight faults to his score for a total of 58.8, and clinching victory in his horses three-star debut. The CIC3 division was won by Karen OConnor of the United States. It was a clean sweep for the USA, with OConnor also winning the CCI2 division and fellow American Buck Davidson winning the CCI1 division. Jon Holling has served eventing in a variety of capacities, including as a four-star rider, a well respected coach, an event organizer, and a leader on various committees and organizations including as Chair of the USEAs Professional Horsemans Council. Holling is originally from Wisconsin and now he and his wife, Jenn, and son Caiden reside at Willow Run in Ocala. Of the 11 members of the US Short List for the 2012 London Olympic Games, just approved by the USEFs Executive Committee, three pairs competed at the Florida Horse Park in the in Equiventures Ocala Horse Properties Eventing in the 2011-12 season: Karen OConnor and Mr. Medicott, Clark Montgomery and Loughan Glen and Marilyn Little-Meredith and RF Rovano Rex.

Friday, June 22, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 22, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Marions Most Wanted Michael Baker, 29, felony violation of probation, driving while license suspended, revoked, etc., third offense. Jeanette Dodd, 28, felony violation of probation, organized fraud. John Paul Mathews, 20, felony warrant child abuse without great bodily harm; battery. Ramon McCormick, 20, felony violation of probation, resisting officer with violence. Alberto Perez, 29, felony bench warrant bond revoked by court, count 1, driving while license revoked as habitual offender; count 2, DUI impairment. Jitkeisha Rachel, 24, felony criminal use of personal identification information. Deputies arrested two local men on charges of retail grand theft after an incident at Walmart. According to the report, William John Bassete Smith Jr., 32, of Southwest 186th Court, allegedly tried to return some items to the service desk, including a pre-paid cell phone, which was never activated, razors, a calculator, a mag light, and other items. The store refused the refund and the man left the store, activating the merchandise alarm. He went to a car which had another man in it, and they left the area together. The tag number was reported to deputies, and a deputy said he knew where it might be located. Officials went to the home. After questioning Smith and Jason Scott OMara, 31, deputies placed both under arrest for retail grand theft. A 23-year-old Ocala man was accused of DUI and no valid drivers license after he was stopped on State Road 40 in the 4400 block for failing to stay in a single lane and stopping for a red light in the middle of an intersection. When the deputy activated his lights, the car turned into a gas station and struck a pole, kept going and stopped by the building. The driver, Domingo Reyes, 23, of Northwest Gainesville Road, got out of the car, despite being tol to remain with the car, and walked toward the deputy, where he had to be subdued. He was then arrested and taken to jail, and the Ocala Police Department investigated the accident because of the pole being struck. A homeless man, Glen Walter Morgan, 52, was arrested for trespass after warning at the Kangaroo Station on State Road 200 near 60th Avenue. Pair accused of retail grand theft at Walmart Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives arrested Richard L. Drake, of Summerfield and charged the 43 year-old in a double shooting killing one man. The charges are: One count of Murder One count of Attempted Murder One count of Grand Theft Auto Just after noon, Tuesday, June 19, 2012 deputies arrived at 9778 S.E. 164th Place, Summerfield. They quickly found David Walsh, 19, lying on the floor of the kitchen. Walsh was dead. It appeared he had been shot multiple times. While conducting a search of the backyard of the property, a deputy located Ethan Worthington, 19, who was suffering after being shot multiple times. Worthington was taken to the hospital. Witnesses led detectives to identify Drake as a person of interest. Drake, reportedly, left the scene in Walshs Chevy Impala. About seven hours later, deputies found Drake in Fort McCoy. Drake was arrested and transported to the jail without incident. Drake was being held with no bond. Summerfield man faces murder charge On June 1, Captain Gerard Stroh officially retired from the Friendship Volunteer Fire Department (FVFD) and Marion County Fire Rescue Station 21. He started as a volunteer with this department in January 1997 after coming to Ocala from New York where he had also served as a firefighter. He arrived and took a leadership position when FVFD was previously housed on S.R. 200 in a building that had been used for processing meat. He witnessed many changes within this station which finally resulted in the transition into our new Station 21 Friendship building at Southwest 90th Street. He facilitated several major changes that advanced the services to the local community. During his tenure, the volunteers purchased Grass 521, received the new Fire Engine 521, maintained and operated Grass 521 and helped establish Rehab 21 truck which provides aide and supplies to firefighters working long hours on calls. Over Jerrys career span, he has dedicated his time and responded to countless emergency calls.
