BRIEFS Debby puts blood supply at emergency levelThe flooding and storms from Tropical Storm Debby have left local blood supplies at emergency levels. With more severe weather predicted, supplies will continue to drop. In many of our cities the shelves at LifeSouth are bare. It is important to have a reserve supply of blood on hand for emergencies, but the weather and the normal summer slowdown have all but wiped out any surplus, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. I ask our donors to please grab an umbrella and come out and donate. On Sunday, part of Florida served by LifeSouth received more than five inches of rain, and coastal communities suffered minor flooding. With the storm heading north in the Gulf, the communities in Georgia and Alabama will also feel the effect. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. Call LifeSouth tollfree at 888-795-2707 or go to our website at www.lifesouth.org to find a blood drive near you. LifeSouth hours of operation are as follows: Ocala Donor Center, 1607 E Silver Springs Blvd. Sunday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Monday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Thursday and Friday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dunnellon Donor Center Rainbow Springs Shopping Center, Unit #303, 11352 N Williams St. Sunday and Monday: Closed; Tuesday: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Fri: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Saturday: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 352-522-0991 INDEX Bookmark...........................23 Cherrywood......................14 Oak Run...............................16 Obituary................................3 Opinion..................................8 OTOW...................................18 Out to Pastor.....................11 Pun Alley.............................17 Puzzles.................................22 Social Security.....................3CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 5 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY JIM CLARK Editor Back-and-forth accusations about a four-day school week highlighted a debate recently among school superintendent candidates. The event took place on June 20 at Ocala West United Methodist Church, part of a candidates night also involving County Commission candidates. School Board member Jackie Porter, a late entry into the superintendents race, was the second speaker on the list, but Diana Greene, who talked first, is a Democrat and not on the ballot for the Aug. 14 primary. The other three candidates, including Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner, are Republicans. After delving into her background, in which she said was not a college graduate but came from the school of hard knocks, Porter lashed out against the others. I was the only one of these superintendent candidates to stand up against a four-day school week. That recommendation came directly from the other superintendent candidates. You dont think that was hard? I was the only one standing there among five board members, a superintendent, two deputy superintendents and a lot of executive directors. I felt the decision lacked common sense and compassion for our families and our businesses, and while this was being played out, they were all candidates. She said that the proposal died when the county found it would lose $1.8 million in state funds by not busing the fifth day of the week. In the corporate world, someones job would have been on the line for missing the mark of $1.8 million. She also said that she stood up against the recommendation to reIn just a few days, fireworks will be the highlight of Fourth of July celebrations around the country. While these sky displays are certainly fun to watch, they are responsible for thousands of injuries each year, most of which are incurred by children. Marion County Fire Rescue encourages residents to attend professional fireworks shows in lieu of setting off fireworks themselves at backyard events to prevent injuries. Even seemingly benign sparklers pose a threat as the tips of these holiday favorites burn at approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit thats three times the average baking setting. In fact, of the 8,600 injuries that occurred in 2010 as a result of fireworks, approximately 1,200 were associated with sparklers and 400 with bottle rockets, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Moreover, according to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2010 two out of every five fireworks injury victims were children under the age of 15; children ages 10 to 14 had the highest rate of fireworks-related injuries; males accounted for nearly 75 percent. Still, many of the above incidents dont stand alone. Fireworks injuries are often accompanied by property damage. In 2009 fireworks caused approximately 18,000 fires nationwide, resulting in $38 million in damage. Below are Marion County groups that are planning public fireworks: Celebrate Independence Day at the Circle Square Commons Town Square on Wednesday, July 4, from 5 to 9 p.m. The festivities will feature music by Marion Countys Best local band Second Slice, a professional patriotic skydiving show and food and craft vendors. Plus, observe a Missing Man presentation including four World War II North American T-6 model aircrafts used by the Air Force and a spectacular fireworks display beginning at 9 p.m. Parking is $5 per car for non-On Top of the World residents. Parking lots will open at 4 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs! For more information call 352854-3670 or visit: www.CircleSquareCommons.com. Ocala Jaycees God and Country Day will take place beginning at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, in the field at the corner of U.S. Highway 27 and County Road 225A. Fireworks will begin at dusk, and the free event includes bounce houses, two stages of live entertainment, food and craft vendors and monster truck rides. There will be a $1 parking fee. More information can be found at http://www.facebook.com/TheOcalaJaycees. Church at the Springs will host a fireworks display event from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 1, at 5424 S.E. 58th Ave. There will also be bounce houses, water-slides, concessions and music.

PLEASESEEDEBATE PAGE3 Debby moving away from areaAfter several days of hanging out in the Gulf, Tropical Storm Debby, now downgraded to a tropical depression, moved across Marion County late Tuesday and early Wednesday and is expected to move out to sea. Although there was some localized flooding and a couple of sinkholes, the storm produced no major damage in the area. Some events, including Marion County summer school for Wednesday, were canceled. As of Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center was monitoring a tropical wave in the Atlantic, but development was considered unlikely. 000BMNN

move school resource officers, saying her opponents recommended the move. We are going to keep our safety officers. We could cut cell phones, everyone has a personal cell phone these days. We could even cut a few vacation days out of administrators pay. She also said that she fought to require students to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance. Tomyn spoke next and concentrated on his platform and goals. I have a better way. We will have safer schools, all our children will have great educational opportunities and there will be a balanced transportation budget. These resources will be managed with responsibility. I am not looking for a job. I want to return a favor. As a product of our great school system that has educated and employed me, I know feel it is my time to serve. I do not feel entitled, I feel obligated. Wagoner came up next and went on the offensive. Citing a famous Ronald Reagan quote from a presidential debate, he said to Porter, There you go again. Speaking about Porter, he said, She made several comments up here that were absolutely not true. None of these candidates up here recommended a four-day work week. As a matter of fact, those of you who listened last year, none of us recommended taking resource officers out of the classroom and none of us recommended to increase taxes. Wagoner said the job of the school district is to teach and learn. We dont have a money problem, we have a resource and allocation problem. After that, the session went to a question and answer period with the audience. One audience member (questioners were not required to identify themselves) stood up and said to Porter, Essentially you were called a liar tonight. Would you care to respond? Porter produced a loose leaf book and pulled out an agenda item from June 28, 2011, concerning the fourday week. She noted the report was signed by Tomyn, among others, and that on the back was a calendar for the proposed four-day week. She said that in her administration, when someone put their name on a report they would have to stand by it. Tomyn immediately fired back, I work for the superintendent, and Im a good soldier. Im also pretty good at figuring out complex problems and doing good presentations. He said the superintendent (Jim Yancey) asked him and a co-worker To look at the four-day week and create what might be a four-day week schedule and make a presentation before the School Board, and the pair did exactly that. We were being good soldiers and we followed his directions. We were not recommending as individual educators that the four-day week was the best thing for our students. Porter, Tomyn and Wagoner will be on the Republican primary ballot on Aug. 14. The winner will face Greene in November.Friday, June 29, 2012~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

That is why it is important for everyone receiving Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to sign up for electronic payments. These days, almost everyone gets benefit payments electronically. Today, about 90 percent of all Social Security and SSI beneficiaries receive their payments electronically. That number is increasing because the law requires that by March 1, 2013 all federal benefit payments, including Social Security and SSI payments, be made electronically. Whether you receive Social Security or SSI, you can depend on your payment arriving in your account on time, every time. If you dont already receive electronic payments, there are many good reasons to sign up. For one, less money and time spent driving to the bank to cash your check helps you save. Second, fewer paper checks, envelopes, and stamps, and less fuel to deliver the checks means savings for the government. Hurricane season is here for some areas of the country. Other regions bear the brunt of flooding. Some areas of the nation are plagued by tornadoes, and still others must deal with wildfires, severe thunderstorms, or even earthquakes. If you are unfortunate enough to be in the path of a natural disaster, the last thing you want is for your income to be interrupted because of an evacuation or a missing mailbox. With electronic payments, you know your money will be in your account on time no matter what. When on vacation, an electronic payment ensures payments will be deposited into your account on time, so theres no reason to worry about the safety of your benefit or to ask a neighbor to look out for your check when you are away. As an added bonus, many banks offer free checking accounts for people who use direct deposit because it saves the bank the cost of processing paper payments. Skip the line at the bank, save money, get your payment faster, and know you can depend on your payment being in the bank no matter what happens or where you are. You can do all of this with electronic payments. Learn more about it at www.socialsecurity.gov/deposit. Adon Williams is Social Security district manager for the Ocala office.

In coordination with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Master the Possibilities Education Center at On Top of the World had a tour of the Emergency Management Office on Northwest 30th Avenue. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and Sgt. Louis Pulford gave local residents an informative tour of the office. They explained the purpose of the facility and how much generator power they had available. Live photos from a helicopter can be viewed on the TVs and local utilities each have a station with computers and telephones to work with. An important tool in case of power failure is ham radios. There is an antenna at the Emergency Mangement facility for receiving information from outside ham radio operators. To provide enough electricity for seven days in case of a power outage the two generators only need to work at 25 percent of capacity during a test with all TVs, A/C, lights, and telephones in use. Cell phones used by the Sheriffs Office will be usable before outside ones in case a tower is unusable. PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELSgt.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com MISSION FLATS By William Landay If you like hard hitting complexity in your crime novels and good cops doing bad things and bad cops doing good things, Mission Flats belongs on your bookshelf. In a well-written expose of the seedy underside of the criminal justice system, we first find young Police Chief Ben Truman of Versailles, Maine discovering a body in one of the areas vacation cottages. It turns out to be that of a Boston DA who was in the state investigating an old, unsolved murder of a police officer. Since nothing much happens in his small town, Ben opts to join investigators in Boston, taking along a former cop, 67-year-old Jack Kelly whos happy to come out of retirement. The readers immediate reaction to this move is that the squeaky clean naf of a police chief is leaving the cozy confines of Versailles for the wicked big city where he will be clearly over his head and in possible danger. And just walking around in Mission Flats is dangerous enough. Ben tries to describe the blighted area: The district is adjacent to nowhere and on the way to nowhere, dangling beneath This book features a surprise ending Franklin Park like a rotten pear. The case soon takes on much larger implications as three separate murders seem linked. And the cast of characters grows as well. Theres a shady sort of cop named Martin Gittens, an attractive prosecutor and daughter of Jack Kelly, Caroline Kelly, and a tribe of gang members. As time goes on Ben suspects a police conspiracy to pin the murders on drug pusher Harold Braxton. In almost everyones book Braxton is one thoroughly bad-ass dude. But Ben sees him differently, particularly after Braxton saves his life and after he shows great concern for his small daughter in police custody. Jack Kelly tries to address Bens anxiety and bafflement by saying, Sometimes you cant figure everything out because you cant ever really understand other people. You cant understand why they do what they do. You just have to accept a little mystery, Ben. People are mysterious, the world is mysterious. You cant know everything. Youre not supposed to. This isnt a history book. Its just the world. Its a messy place. A good read with a surprise ending.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be prepared to face some challenges stirred up by an envious colleague. Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure The Marion County Growth Management Department (Planning Division) is now accepting applications for smalland large-scale land use changes, or amendments, to the Marion County Comprehensive Plan 2035 on a daily basis. Previously, applications were only accepted during limited application cycles throughout the year, per Florida statutes. Owners interested in changing their lands designated use, such as going from rural to commercial use, are eligible to apply for a smallor large-scale amendment. Small-scale amendment applications may be submitted for land 10 acres or less in size. Large-scale amendment applications may be submitted for any number of acres. The amendment applications may be picked up at the department (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala) or downloaded from http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/land_use.aspx beginning July 2. Required public hearings associated with the amendment requests will be scheduled as soon as possible and on an asneeded basis upon receipt of completed eligible applications. Growth Management hosts amendment application cycles as part of its activities to keep the countys comprehensive plan up to date. The plan is Marion Countys key guide for growth management and provides the framework for how the county will continue to develop. For more information about amendments to the comprehensive plan, contact Michael Kokosky, senior planner, at 352438-2600 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/growthmanagement .htm. Comp plan changes due Despite a record-breaking year of federally declared disasters in 2011, including floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires, many Americans still lack basic awareness of their local emergency communications systems. At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications. Yet, respondents said they would be more motivated to take action in an emergency by ANS alerts than any other communication, ahead of traditional warning sirens, radio and TV public services announcements and even word-of-mouth communication from friends and family. With all of the options available to keep the public informed of nearby disasters or emergencies, we were alarmed to see how many people arent aware of the existing notification systems in their communities, said Joe Wilson, president of the Industrial Systems Division, Safety and Security Group at Federal Signal. In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... T homas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the NannyState do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans trans-fats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nanny-control capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H. Underhill thought otherwise. He opined that the real division in the world today is not between socialism and capitalism. It is between freedom and totalitarianism. In addition, were paying thousands of federal and state employees who seem to have too little to do, and create new projects and nonsense to justify their employment until the happy day of retirement. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 S cams and vandals. Were dealing with all the good stuff out there today, all the people that want to see you suffer. There are all sorts of scams out there, perpetrated by people bent on one thing. They want to get your money. Weve publicized a lot of these fraudulent activities and what leads to them, and still they happen. There was a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a man who said he had been a victim of the grandson in jail scam. He got a call from someone, supposedly his grandson, who said he was in a Panama City (the capital of the country, not the Florida town) jail, and needed money to get out. Without verifying the call, the man sent $3,000 to the grandson, who, of course, was not his grandson. He wanted me to publicize the incident so that other people would not be taken in. Of course, Im glad to do that, but I pointed out to him that this type of scam has been publicized in our newspaper many times. So heres the simple rule: Dont send money to anyone unless you initiate the process. If you want to send your grandkids money for a holiday, fine. But if someone calls and wants money for your grandchildren not on your life. People ask how others can be fooled into thinking they are talking to a grandchild. Well, these crooks are clever. They learn as much information as they can, and they also have a way of getting you to reveal information while you are talking. I know I have 12 grandchildren, and I probably wouldnt recognize the voices of the older ones if they called and didnt identify themselves right away. Of course there are other scams out there. Just recently, there was someone who was told they could share money that was found if they put up some of their own money in good faith. For some reason, this is called the pigeon drop. The victim didnt bite, however, and the scam failed. But that brings up another warning: Nothing is free. You dont get to keep money you havent earned. And remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter (another popular fraud). To put it simply, you worked hard for your money. Make sure you dont send it to anyone just because you get a little greedy and want more. And if someone tries to extort money from you in this fashion, call law enforcement. Maybe you can help put some of these people out of business. On the vandalism side, people in Majestic Oaks and an area near Sun Valley awoke the other morning to various types of damage and theft. It seems some marauders swept through their neighborhoods at about 4 in the morning to do their nasty deeds. Some of it was just pure meanness, damaging items, breaking car windows, etc. Others were thefts, but again, as we have emphasized in the past, it came from unlocked vehicles. If you dont lock your car, you have yourself to blame. They call them creepers, because they keep trying car doors until they find one unlocked, and then they take stuff from that car. So whether its the vandals who are creeps, or the thieves who are creepers, be aware of whats going on. And if you wake to people wandering around in the middle of the night, call 9-1-1 and let officials know. You might be helping solve, and prevent, a bunch of crimes.

T he brutal Jerry Sandusky trial came to an end last Friday night, but like many people, we think its far from over. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Sandusky: We wish hed just go away Scam artists, creeps, creepers in area Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR War against obesity and other human failings Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED God bless AmericaI realize we have a large amount of transients living here, but based on some of their opinions and lack of knowledge of America, I wonder where they are from. Though they claim to be educated, they have no idea about our history, primarily denying our Christian Heritage. Do you atheist Liberals realize that until the 1960s, no one questioned our being a Christian nation, praying in schools and other public places? Most of these prayers were In Jesus name, and every president until Obama believed and declared we were/are a Christian nation. Take a drive through our great country, you will see that we have numerous Christian churches in every city and county. Do you think having manger scenes at Christmas is a recent occurrence? When you align yourself with the Christian opposition, you are in step with Satan himself, not a great place to be. And yes, you have freedom from religion but quit trying to change our great country into something it is not and was never intended to be. I commend our County Commissioners for having the backbone to stand up to the opposition and declare We will continue having prayer In Jesus name. God will bless you for taking such a stand! Christians will no longer sit back and have nonbelieving Liberals dictate our behavior. With our decaying morals and all that is becoming wicked in America, you seem to be winning, but you will not.

community, for having Frank here. We will miss him in addition to his wife. Now the disappointing part. I first came to the area in 1964 as an auditor for Blue Cross of Florida and subsequently of Medicare. West of I-75 there was nothing except fields and little else. Going from Ocala to Williston; was a real pain. About the only place to stay here was the Holiday Inn and nowhere to eat. So, against that setting, some years later along came a man, Kulbar Ghumman, who built Oak Run. Now remember there were no shopping centers, doctors offices, stores, gas stations, or Walmart and I could go on and on. Oh yes, 200 was a two-lane road, which was better than the now six. So this man built a community, a rural community, free of the hustle and bustle of cities and those who were city thinkers. Low and behold, along came this old guy, and his wife in 2001, to take up residence in Oak Run. Why? Because it was a peaceful and quiet community, which was left natural with trees, trees, trees. Now, Ive had my differences with Oak Run, but those have been of a not too serious nature and no longer exist. But along comes a bunch of people who feel they have rights by virtue of living in Oak Run. I can tell you they have privileges. The big hoorah now is these city dwellers, who knew when they moved here, it was a beautiful, natural community. Bear in mind people knew what they were getting into when they moved here. Now I dont want to kill a dead horse, but we now have an element who completely disregard the safety of Oak Run residents with their walking on the boulevard, even after signs were put up indicating it was not permitted. So, we have a person stating, just because the signs are on one side of the boulevard, its OK to walk on the other side. Also they want to walk to grocery stores and doctors plus some want to mirror the Villages. Now theres a bunch of bull. This walking situation is really out of hand. Even now, I see people walking on the boulevard, daily, which is against Oak Run safety rules. I have even had my car hit with things by walkers and we know people who have had golf clubs swung at their cars. The security people should patrol the boulevard and give tickets to these rule breakers, $50 per violation sounds reasonable. But for people to openly state they will violate Oak Run walking rules, is the same as breaking any law outside of Oak Run. I had someone tell me one time, if I didnt like it here leave, well, Im here. I guess that could apply to people who want city privileges in a country setting. Get it in your heads, we are a rural community and thats as it should be. Walking to Walmart and TimberRidge is ridiculous as it also would be if one were to get there by golf cart, and weve been down that road before. When these things come up, I think of that pathetic movie Dumb and Dumber. Remember Ive said in writings to the Citizen in the past, that, C or average is not too bright. I rest my case. By the way walkers, if youre hit while walking on the boulevard, youre at fault, not the driver, as the boulevard is posted. Bill Ford Oak RunProtect our waterThe decision to save Floridas drinking water is too important to leave to the politicians who care more about those who give large amounts of money for their next campaign than they do about the little people that they represent, The decision of what to do about Floridas water supply is too important to leave to a few people at the top of the food chain. This decision that affects every citizen and resident of our state should be made by every citizen and resident of the State of Florida. Please contact your state representative and plead with them to put this issue on the ballot this November and let the people decide. Jerry Segovis Ocala Purge the votersYou have outdone yourself in your editorial Purge everyone and start from scratch. Great idea. Puts everyone on the same level. Of course the race mongers would be here in a flash protesting. In order to renew my Florida drivers license I had to prove I was a U.S. citizen and a Florida resident. If I had to do that, then anyone wanting to vote should have to do the same. T.G. Giffin Palm CayNow a dictatorship?United States of America is now a dictatorship? I cannot believe that the citizens of the USA dont mind at all if non citizens vote in our elections. This is exactly what Mr. Holder and President Obama are saying.

Call Audrey Mangan at 352-854-7074 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. who have lost their voting rights, after all you must be a citizen in order to vote? I think this is a conspiracy created by the Democrats to let the illegal aliens vote, right Ms. Pelosi? There are not going to be any purging of minorities who are citizens, for heavens sake get real people this is no longer the dark ages. These are the people who have let our president turn this country into a dictatorship. Are all you people really sure that the DOJ and the White house are not covering something up and that is why they do not show the papers asked for by Congress? If you are, then let me tell you about a bridge thats for sale too. Ms. Pelosi got up and spoke her mind(?) and then the snowball rolled on and on. The only people who have something to gain by Mr. Obamas re-election beside the politicians are the ones who pay no taxes and receive all of the non entitlements, welfare, food stamps, Medicaid etc. Wake up America! Pat Lee Ocala Romneys plan workedGov. Mitt Romneys economic plan is to reduce income taxes by 20 percent across the board and limit federal spending. With minor variations, this is what Harding-Coolidge did in the early 20s, JFK in the early 60s, and Reagan in the early 80s. And they all worked. Pres. Obamas plan is (1) increased taxes on upper incomes; (2) massive public works programs; (3) increased bureaucracies; (4) subsidizing troubled businesses; and (5) protection for labor unions. This is what Herbert Hoover did in the early 30s. How did that work? To get economic recovery, the government needs to cut taxes and get out of the way. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, June 29, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 I have always thought about what it would be like to be wealthy. Unless I win the lottery somewhere, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States them to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy; after all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money but then I thought about whats involved and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers all they can talk about is money. Specifically, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years and I Please vote for me; I create lots of jobs O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is not theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political office. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea.

the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Thinking about July 4 takes us down the alley to some patriotic humor.Tarzan the patriotBack a long time ago Frank Buck was a great animal trapper. The San Diego Zoo asked him to capture a rare hornless rhinoceros. Frank traveled to Africa where he met Tarzan. Tarzan was painting stripes. However, you couldnt tell whether they were white stripes on a black zebra or black stripes on a white zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, I hate to bother you while youre busy, but would you happen to know the whereabouts of a hornless rhinoceros? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to find a hornless rhinoceros. Frank captured the animal, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the hornless rhinoceros. Some time later the Chicago Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a short-necked giraffe. So he went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on a zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a short-necked giraffe? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to go. Frank captured the short-necked giraffe, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the short-necked giraffe. Three days later the Smithsonian Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a trunk-less elephant. Again, Frank went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on more zebras. Frank said, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a trunk-less elephant? Tarzan, now totally peeved, broke his brush and threw it away, pointed to a bush, and out walked a trunk-less elephant. Frank captured the trunk-less elephant, thanked Tarzan who had by this time picked up a chipmunk and was painting with its tail, and traveled back to America where he delivered the trunk-less elephant. After this, Frank Buck retired, had his phone disconnected, and lived happily ever after. The moral of the story: Tarzan stripes forever.Armed and dangerousThe national arm wrestling championships are regularly held in Williston and many have heard about the man who was the champion year after year until he lost his wrestling arm in a terrible accident. This put him into a deep depression and forlorn at the prospect of never again competing at the sport he loved. A world-class surgeon in Gainesville heard of his plight. Moved with compassion he offered to perform restorative surgery, but with an unusual twist. He reasoned that if a pigs heart could be successfully transplanted into humans, he would transplant a bears foreleg to our poor arm wrestling champ, giving him another chance to complete. The surgery was a huge success and the man soon re-entered competition, beating anyone who dared to challenge him. He so quickly dispatched his opThis is the week for some patriotic humor P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank ponents that they appealed to the United States Arm Wrestling Committee, claiming that this mans transplanted arm gave him an unfair advantage. They wanted him disqualified and barred from any further competition. The committees answer was swift and brief. They noted that it would be a gross violation of this mans civil rights to forbid him from competing. They called particular attention to the fact that every American citizen clearly has the constitutional right to bear arms. No fireworksCities across the country are cutting their fireworks budgets for the Fourth of July. Apparently they just dont feel they are getting enough bang for the buck. I think Ill just listen to some Puccini, eat a sandwich from Starkist or Bumble Bee products, and drink some Earl Grey tea, because America is the land of opera, tuna, tea. Seal of approvalThe animal trainer was working with a young seal for a new show at Ocean World. The seal was taught to listen to and obey commands like, In low end and jump! or On rock and stay! The seals favorite command was however, In deep end and stay! With our summer weather many of us will celebrate Independence Day by going to the deep end of the pool and staying. May the fourth be with you!

The parade will include the Marion County Fife and Drum Corps, Police and Fire Department, Oak Run neighborhood floats, and social clubs all marching to the Orchid Club. As always there will be special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female.

The cool down will be at the Orchid Club immediately following the parade. The afternoon session will be at Palm Grove commencing at approximately 1:30. The area around Palm Grove is where you get to eat and play games for prizes. The food tickets have been on sale all month.

Oak Run TravelAll you cruisers pay special attention to the Eastern Caribbean Cruise being hosted by John Cassabianca on the magnificent Allure of the Seas by Royal Caribbean. Sailing on March 3, 2013, for 7 days cruise the tropics on the new Allure, sister ship to the Oasis of the Seas. Both ships are destinations in and of themselves. If you should choose not to go ashore at the ports of call you will have plenty to do and see onboard. Three of the most interesting places are the Promenade, Boardwalk and Central Park. Promenade features a levitating bar which ascends and descends over three decks while you sit and enjoy your favorite drink. It also has a mezzanine level looking down on the promenade deck and includes a piano bar. There is a Starbucks on the Promenade as well as other shops and it is here that the DreamWorks Animation Parade takes place. Boardwalk has a Carousel, Johnny Rockets diner and Seafood Shack plus 2 rock climbing walls and the Aqua Theatre. Central Park feels like a walk in the park with live trees, shrubbery and even a few birds flitting around. This is were the various specialty dining venues are including a Chops Grill, Giovannis Table and Park Caf to name a few. Sit on a park bench with a cup of coffee and never feel like you are onboard a ship at sea There is entertainment of course, and the featured production show is Chicago, the Musical, but there are also the fabulou skating shows, Casino Royale for the gamblers and there is Blaze, the hottest nightclub at sea. Call John and let him know you want to go to sea with him in March of 2013. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on June 22 was played on a warm and muggy day, but the rain held off long enough for all the participants to finish. The past rains have greened up the course, and the fairways and greens reflect this, making it a pleasure to be out there. The game was three best net, and 34 players participated. The winners were: first place with a 190, Mickey Klein, John DeSalvol, Ray Hagerman, and Steve Casner; second was a tie at 200 between the teams of Dick Blackburn, Don Aubrey, Paul Valois, and Paul Colatruglio, and Charlie Elder, Tom Ducz, Jan Flickinger and Duke (long ball) Slayton. Closest to the pin were Jim Lacey, Charlie Elder, John ONeill, and Don Aubrey. Stay tuned for the results of the Red, White, Blue Tournament played on the 27th and 29th. It will be a good one. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 21 we played gross, no handicap. Flight A:1st. Kerry Tims, 2nd. Sam Timmermeyer. Flight B 1st. Vange Bell, 2nd. Cindy Kocher.Closest to pin on #16 was Cindy Kocher.

More than 30 people came out to answer questions that Rich Hurley put up on the big screen. The challenge intrigued and stumped; delighted and surprised those in attendance as they scrambled for answers. The evening was brightened by the large showing of new people many of whom are new residents to Cherrywood. The subject for the game was Comedians and Comedy. Donna James, Ruth Hurley and Bill and Lorraine Lavertue won the first place prize. Rich and Beverly Idone; Pia Dean and Terry Torrusio took second place. The Guppies, winners for two months running, were skunked by these two teams. Congratulations to our winners and to all of our players. Speaking of winners, so far this year, Trivia participants have donated $130 dollars to the Wounded Warriors Fund. All of our residents are encouraged to come and take part in this fun night. If you dont have a team, youll be given one when you arrive so dont be shy. Just bring a dollar to register; some snacks and beverages; a few of your brain cells and a sense of humor. The next Trivia night will be July 18 at 7 p.m., so come on out. Blood donations needed We have an urgent need for volunteers to maintain our blood drives here at Cherrywood. Our current director is no longer able to continue this worthwhile work so we need some one or some ones to step up and step in. All that is required is a few hours of your time every couple of months; a concern for this great work; and a telephone. If you have any desire or interest at all in helping this life saving service please contact Geri in the office. If we have two or even three people to take over it will lighten the load on any individual so give it some thought. This month our Blood Drive will be on July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in front of the clubhouse. As always, we need generous people who are willing to donate their blood. In these summer months, many of our donors who are snow birds are gone but the need for life giving blood remains the same. In short we need our residents to roll up their sleeves both figuratively and literally to keep the blood mobile an active part of this community. CERT Team thanks those who submitted forms Shutter Bugs Photo Club Friday, July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse library, the Shutter Bugs will meet for their monthly meeting. Bring your camera; your curiosity; your artistic talent or technical knowledge and join us. We hope to have a guest speaker at this meeting and to plan our next outing. Please keep watching this column for more information. Movie Night Tuesday evening, July 3 at 7 p.m. the smell of popcorn will again filter through the clubhouse and the big screen will once more come to life for another showing of a top notch film. Julys film is Captain America starring Samuel L Jackson; Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving.

Keep in mind that there is a limited time for getting your ticket from Geri. See you the 23rd for another fun night at Cherrywood.Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident with a promising future; an interesting past or some one who has made a contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week I take the liberty to do a variation of that theme. This week I CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 will spotlight more than one person and while they are non-residents of Cherrywood, they are still quite interesting and worthy of mention in spite of being law breakers. First off is Mr. Carter Braxton from Virginia. An international trader and farmer, he amassed quite a fortune. Due to his circumstances and being an enemy of the government, his ships were impounded and his property confiscated or destroyed. When he died, he was a pauper. Another man, Mr. Thomas McKeam had to leave his family because of being wanted by the law. In spite of that fact, he later served in Congress without pay. Like Braxton, he died destitute with no financial gain to show for his efforts. Then there was Francis Lewis. He had his house destroyed and his wife taken prisoner by the authorities. She died in captivity while he hid out; a fugitive from the law. Lastly, John Hart had a similar situation. Because of his illegal actions, he was forced to leave his wifes bedside as she lay dying. His 13 children had to run for their lives as authorities closed in. When John returned home a year later, his children had disbursed through out the countryside and the widower had to hide out in the forest in fear for his life. What did these men have in common? First, before they became fugitives, they each had been highly respected individuals in their communities with excellent reputations. Second, each one of them signed the Declaration of Independence. These persons were not alone in their patriotism or in their suffering. In total, 56 men signed the Declaration knowing that they would be put to death if captured by the British. By signing such a revolutionary document, in the eyes of the British government, they were committing treason. For five of the signers, they were in fact captured and tortured before their deaths. Twelve had their properties destroyed and their homes burned. Two of these signers lost sons and one had two of his sons captured. Nine more fought in the Continental Army and died from either wounds or the hardships of the war. Another thing that all of these patriots had in common at the time they signed that wonderful document was that they were men of means and wealth. Everything they had, they risked to preserve and defend the ideas expressed in the words, We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These men were among the first of our patriots who fought for the idea that people down deep in the depths of their souls, want to be free. Because they personally wanted freedom, they rightly assumed that most Americans felt the same way. With eloquence they stated their reasons for leaving the British Empire. With courage and their own blood they stood up for these principals and with a dream for a brighter future, they did indeed sacrifice their lives and fortunes. On July 4, we will celebrate the birth of this nation with fireworks; parades; picnics; and recreation. The fireworks remind us of the rattle of musketry; the booming of cannons; the rockets red glare and the chaos of war that gave birth to our country. Parades and speeches will remind us of the rights that were so hard won during our fight for independence. Flags will wave and songs will play filling the patriotic heart with pride and hope. Many of us will enjoy picnics and trips to the beach or other travel to be with friends and family. This is a joyous demonstration that Americans have not forgotten how to pursue happiness. Celebration is the word for the day and whether we are in Washington, D.C., or San Francisco, California, or any place in between, we Americans welcome a good party. All of this being said, even at the age of 236 the United States is still a relatively young country and as such we are still going through some growing pains. Those pains may be political; economic; diplomatic or social but America has always been, since her birth, optimistic and full of promise. In spite of her problems, she remains the last best hope for mankind. This holiday as we watch fireworks; grill food; go to the beach or head to the mall, let each of us take a few minutes to think about those who gave up so much for our freedom. They deserve our undying gratitude for forging the greatest Nation on earth.

More than 30 people came out to answer questions that Rich Hurley put up on the big screen. The challenge intrigued and stumped; delighted and surprised those in attendance as they scrambled for answers. The evening was brightened by the large showing of new people many of whom are new residents to Cherrywood. The subject for the game was Comedians and Comedy. Donna James, Ruth Hurley and Bill and Lorraine Lavertue won the first place prize. Rich and Beverly Idone; Pia Dean and Terry Torrusio took second place. The Guppies, winners for two months running, were skunked by these two teams. Congratulations to our winners and to all of our players. Speaking of winners, so far this year, Trivia participants have donated $130 dollars to the Wounded Warriors Fund. All of our residents are encouraged to come and take part in this fun night. If you dont have a team, youll be given one when you arrive so dont be shy. Just bring a dollar to register; some snacks and beverages; a few of your brain cells and a sense of humor. The next Trivia night will be July 18 at 7 p.m., so come on out. Blood donations needed We have an urgent need for volunteers to maintain our blood drives here at Cherrywood. Our current director is no longer able to continue this worthwhile work so we need some one or some ones to step up and step in. All that is required is a few hours of your time every couple of months; a concern for this great work; and a telephone. If you have any desire or interest at all in helping this life saving service please contact Geri in the office. If we have two or even three people to take over it will lighten the load on any individual so give it some thought. This month our Blood Drive will be on July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in front of the clubhouse. As always, we need generous people who are willing to donate their blood. In these summer months, many of our donors who are snow birds are gone but the need for life giving blood remains the same. In short we need our residents to roll up their sleeves both figuratively and literally to keep the blood mobile an active part of this community. CERT Team thanks those who submitted forms Shutter Bugs Photo Club Friday, July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse library, the Shutter Bugs will meet for their monthly meeting. Bring your camera; your curiosity; your artistic talent or technical knowledge and join us. We hope to have a guest speaker at this meeting and to plan our next outing. Please keep watching this column for more information. Movie Night Tuesday evening, July 3 at 7 p.m. the smell of popcorn will again filter through the clubhouse and the big screen will once more come to life for another showing of a top notch film. Julys film is Captain America starring Samuel L Jackson; Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving.

See you the 23rd for another fun night at Cherrywood.Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident with a promising future; an interesting past or some one who has made a contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week I take the liberty to do a variation of that theme. This week I CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 will spotlight more than one person and while they are non-residents of Cherrywood, they are still quite interesting and worthy of mention in spite of being law breakers. First off is Mr. Carter Braxton from Virginia. An international trader and farmer, he amassed quite a fortune. Due to his circumstances and being an enemy of the government, his ships were impounded and his property confiscated or destroyed. When he died, he was a pauper. Another man, Mr. Thomas McKeam had to leave his family because of being wanted by the law. In spite of that fact, he later served in Congress without pay. Like Braxton, he died destitute with no financial gain to show for his efforts. Then there was Francis Lewis. He had his house destroyed and his wife taken prisoner by the authorities. She died in captivity while he hid out; a fugitive from the law. Lastly, John Hart had a similar situation. Because of his illegal actions, he was forced to leave his wifes bedside as she lay dying. His 13 children had to run for their lives as authorities closed in. When John returned home a year later, his children had disbursed through out the countryside and the widower had to hide out in the forest in fear for his life. What did these men have in common? First, before they became fugitives, they each had been highly respected individuals in their communities with excellent reputations. Second, each one of them signed the Declaration of Independence. These persons were not alone in their patriotism or in their suffering. In total, 56 men signed the Declaration knowing that they would be put to death if captured by the British. By signing such a revolutionary document, in the eyes of the British government, they were committing treason. For five of the signers, they were in fact captured and tortured before their deaths. Twelve had their properties destroyed and their homes burned. Two of these signers lost sons and one had two of his sons captured. Nine more fought in the Continental Army and died from either wounds or the hardships of the war. Another thing that all of these patriots had in common at the time they signed that wonderful document was that they were men of means and wealth. Everything they had, they risked to preserve and defend the ideas expressed in the words, We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These men were among the first of our patriots who fought for the idea that people down deep in the depths of their souls, want to be free. Because they personally wanted freedom, they rightly assumed that most Americans felt the same way. With eloquence they stated their reasons for leaving the British Empire. With courage and their own blood they stood up for these principals and with a dream for a brighter future, they did indeed sacrifice their lives and fortunes. On July 4, we will celebrate the birth of this nation with fireworks; parades; picnics; and recreation. The fireworks remind us of the rattle of musketry; the booming of cannons; the rockets red glare and the chaos of war that gave birth to our country. Parades and speeches will remind us of the rights that were so hard won during our fight for independence. Flags will wave and songs will play filling the patriotic heart with pride and hope. Many of us will enjoy picnics and trips to the beach or other travel to be with friends and family. This is a joyous demonstration that Americans have not forgotten how to pursue happiness. Celebration is the word for the day and whether we are in Washington, D.C., or San Francisco, California, or any place in between, we Americans welcome a good party. All of this being said, even at the age of 236 the United States is still a relatively young country and as such we are still going through some growing pains. Those pains may be political; economic; diplomatic or social but America has always been, since her birth, optimistic and full of promise. In spite of her problems, she remains the last best hope for mankind. This holiday as we watch fireworks; grill food; go to the beach or head to the mall, let each of us take a few minutes to think about those who gave up so much for our freedom. They deserve our undying gratitude for forging the greatest Nation on earth.

Oak Run TravelAll you cruisers pay special attention to the Eastern Caribbean Cruise being hosted by John Cassabianca on the magnificent Allure of the Seas by Royal Caribbean. Sailing on March 3, 2013, for 7 days cruise the tropics on the new Allure, sister ship to the Oasis of the Seas. Both ships are destinations in and of themselves. If you should choose not to go ashore at the ports of call you will have plenty to do and see onboard. Three of the most interesting places are the Promenade, Boardwalk and Central Park. Promenade features a levitating bar which ascends and descends over three decks while you sit and enjoy your favorite drink. It also has a mezzanine level looking down on the promenade deck and includes a piano bar. There is a Starbucks on the Promenade as well as other shops and it is here that the DreamWorks Animation Parade takes place. Boardwalk has a Carousel, Johnny Rockets diner and Seafood Shack plus 2 rock climbing walls and the Aqua Theatre. Central Park feels like a walk in the park with live trees, shrubbery and even a few birds flitting around. This is were the various specialty dining venues are including a Chops Grill, Giovannis Table and Park Caf to name a few. Sit on a park bench with a cup of coffee and never feel like you are onboard a ship at sea There is entertainment of course, and the featured production show is Chicago, the Musical, but there are also the fabulou skating shows, Casino Royale for the gamblers and there is Blaze, the hottest nightclub at sea. Call John and let him know you want to go to sea with him in March of 2013. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on June 22 was played on a warm and muggy day, but the rain held off long enough for all the participants to finish. The past rains have greened up the course, and the fairways and greens reflect this, making it a pleasure to be out there. The game was three best net, and 34 players participated. The winners were: first place with a 190, Mickey Klein, John DeSalvol, Ray Hagerman, and Steve Casner; second was a tie at 200 between the teams of Dick Blackburn, Don Aubrey, Paul Valois, and Paul Colatruglio, and Charlie Elder, Tom Ducz, Jan Flickinger and Duke (long ball) Slayton. Closest to the pin were Jim Lacey, Charlie Elder, John ONeill, and Don Aubrey. Stay tuned for the results of the Red, White, Blue Tournament played on the 27th and 29th. It will be a good one. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 21 we played gross, no handicap. Flight A:1st. Kerry Tims, 2nd. Sam Timmermeyer. Flight B 1st. Vange Bell, 2nd. Cindy Kocher.Closest to pin on #16 was Cindy Kocher.

the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Thinking about July 4 takes us down the alley to some patriotic humor.Tarzan the patriotBack a long time ago Frank Buck was a great animal trapper. The San Diego Zoo asked him to capture a rare hornless rhinoceros. Frank traveled to Africa where he met Tarzan. Tarzan was painting stripes. However, you couldnt tell whether they were white stripes on a black zebra or black stripes on a white zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, I hate to bother you while youre busy, but would you happen to know the whereabouts of a hornless rhinoceros? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to find a hornless rhinoceros. Frank captured the animal, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the hornless rhinoceros. Some time later the Chicago Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a short-necked giraffe. So he went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on a zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a short-necked giraffe? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to go. Frank captured the short-necked giraffe, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the short-necked giraffe. Three days later the Smithsonian Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a trunk-less elephant. Again, Frank went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on more zebras. Frank said, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a trunk-less elephant? Tarzan, now totally peeved, broke his brush and threw it away, pointed to a bush, and out walked a trunk-less elephant. Frank captured the trunk-less elephant, thanked Tarzan who had by this time picked up a chipmunk and was painting with its tail, and traveled back to America where he delivered the trunk-less elephant. After this, Frank Buck retired, had his phone disconnected, and lived happily ever after. The moral of the story: Tarzan stripes forever.Armed and dangerousThe national arm wrestling championships are regularly held in Williston and many have heard about the man who was the champion year after year until he lost his wrestling arm in a terrible accident. This put him into a deep depression and forlorn at the prospect of never again competing at the sport he loved. A world-class surgeon in Gainesville heard of his plight. Moved with compassion he offered to perform restorative surgery, but with an unusual twist. He reasoned that if a pigs heart could be successfully transplanted into humans, he would transplant a bears foreleg to our poor arm wrestling champ, giving him another chance to complete. The surgery was a huge success and the man soon re-entered competition, beating anyone who dared to challenge him. He so quickly dispatched his opThis is the week for some patriotic humor P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank ponents that they appealed to the United States Arm Wrestling Committee, claiming that this mans transplanted arm gave him an unfair advantage. They wanted him disqualified and barred from any further competition. The committees answer was swift and brief. They noted that it would be a gross violation of this mans civil rights to forbid him from competing. They called particular attention to the fact that every American citizen clearly has the constitutional right to bear arms. No fireworksCities across the country are cutting their fireworks budgets for the Fourth of July. Apparently they just dont feel they are getting enough bang for the buck. I think Ill just listen to some Puccini, eat a sandwich from Starkist or Bumble Bee products, and drink some Earl Grey tea, because America is the land of opera, tuna, tea. Seal of approvalThe animal trainer was working with a young seal for a new show at Ocean World. The seal was taught to listen to and obey commands like, In low end and jump! or On rock and stay! The seals favorite command was however, In deep end and stay! With our summer weather many of us will celebrate Independence Day by going to the deep end of the pool and staying. May the fourth be with you!

Call Audrey Mangan at 352-854-7074 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. who have lost their voting rights, after all you must be a citizen in order to vote? I think this is a conspiracy created by the Democrats to let the illegal aliens vote, right Ms. Pelosi? There are not going to be any purging of minorities who are citizens, for heavens sake get real people this is no longer the dark ages. These are the people who have let our president turn this country into a dictatorship. Are all you people really sure that the DOJ and the White house are not covering something up and that is why they do not show the papers asked for by Congress? If you are, then let me tell you about a bridge thats for sale too. Ms. Pelosi got up and spoke her mind(?) and then the snowball rolled on and on. The only people who have something to gain by Mr. Obamas re-election beside the politicians are the ones who pay no taxes and receive all of the non entitlements, welfare, food stamps, Medicaid etc. Wake up America! Pat Lee Ocala Romneys plan workedGov. Mitt Romneys economic plan is to reduce income taxes by 20 percent across the board and limit federal spending. With minor variations, this is what Harding-Coolidge did in the early 20s, JFK in the early 60s, and Reagan in the early 80s. And they all worked. Pres. Obamas plan is (1) increased taxes on upper incomes; (2) massive public works programs; (3) increased bureaucracies; (4) subsidizing troubled businesses; and (5) protection for labor unions. This is what Herbert Hoover did in the early 30s. How did that work? To get economic recovery, the government needs to cut taxes and get out of the way. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, June 29, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 I have always thought about what it would be like to be wealthy. Unless I win the lottery somewhere, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States them to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy; after all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money but then I thought about whats involved and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers all they can talk about is money. Specifically, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years and I Please vote for me; I create lots of jobs O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is not theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political office. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea.

community, for having Frank here. We will miss him in addition to his wife. Now the disappointing part. I first came to the area in 1964 as an auditor for Blue Cross of Florida and subsequently of Medicare. West of I-75 there was nothing except fields and little else. Going from Ocala to Williston; was a real pain. About the only place to stay here was the Holiday Inn and nowhere to eat. So, against that setting, some years later along came a man, Kulbar Ghumman, who built Oak Run. Now remember there were no shopping centers, doctors offices, stores, gas stations, or Walmart and I could go on and on. Oh yes, 200 was a two-lane road, which was better than the now six. So this man built a community, a rural community, free of the hustle and bustle of cities and those who were city thinkers. Low and behold, along came this old guy, and his wife in 2001, to take up residence in Oak Run. Why? Because it was a peaceful and quiet community, which was left natural with trees, trees, trees. Now, Ive had my differences with Oak Run, but those have been of a not too serious nature and no longer exist. But along comes a bunch of people who feel they have rights by virtue of living in Oak Run. I can tell you they have privileges. The big hoorah now is these city dwellers, who knew when they moved here, it was a beautiful, natural community. Bear in mind people knew what they were getting into when they moved here. Now I dont want to kill a dead horse, but we now have an element who completely disregard the safety of Oak Run residents with their walking on the boulevard, even after signs were put up indicating it was not permitted. So, we have a person stating, just because the signs are on one side of the boulevard, its OK to walk on the other side. Also they want to walk to grocery stores and doctors plus some want to mirror the Villages. Now theres a bunch of bull. This walking situation is really out of hand. Even now, I see people walking on the boulevard, daily, which is against Oak Run safety rules. I have even had my car hit with things by walkers and we know people who have had golf clubs swung at their cars. The security people should patrol the boulevard and give tickets to these rule breakers, $50 per violation sounds reasonable. But for people to openly state they will violate Oak Run walking rules, is the same as breaking any law outside of Oak Run. I had someone tell me one time, if I didnt like it here leave, well, Im here. I guess that could apply to people who want city privileges in a country setting. Get it in your heads, we are a rural community and thats as it should be. Walking to Walmart and TimberRidge is ridiculous as it also would be if one were to get there by golf cart, and weve been down that road before. When these things come up, I think of that pathetic movie Dumb and Dumber. Remember Ive said in writings to the Citizen in the past, that, C or average is not too bright. I rest my case. By the way walkers, if youre hit while walking on the boulevard, youre at fault, not the driver, as the boulevard is posted. Bill Ford Oak RunProtect our waterThe decision to save Floridas drinking water is too important to leave to the politicians who care more about those who give large amounts of money for their next campaign than they do about the little people that they represent, The decision of what to do about Floridas water supply is too important to leave to a few people at the top of the food chain. This decision that affects every citizen and resident of our state should be made by every citizen and resident of the State of Florida. Please contact your state representative and plead with them to put this issue on the ballot this November and let the people decide. Jerry Segovis Ocala Purge the votersYou have outdone yourself in your editorial Purge everyone and start from scratch. Great idea. Puts everyone on the same level. Of course the race mongers would be here in a flash protesting. In order to renew my Florida drivers license I had to prove I was a U.S. citizen and a Florida resident. If I had to do that, then anyone wanting to vote should have to do the same. T.G. Giffin Palm CayNow a dictatorship?United States of America is now a dictatorship? I cannot believe that the citizens of the USA dont mind at all if non citizens vote in our elections. This is exactly what Mr. Holder and President Obama are saying.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... T homas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the NannyState do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans trans-fats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nanny-control capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H. Underhill thought otherwise. He opined that the real division in the world today is not between socialism and capitalism. It is between freedom and totalitarianism. In addition, were paying thousands of federal and state employees who seem to have too little to do, and create new projects and nonsense to justify their employment until the happy day of retirement. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 S cams and vandals. Were dealing with all the good stuff out there today, all the people that want to see you suffer. There are all sorts of scams out there, perpetrated by people bent on one thing. They want to get your money. Weve publicized a lot of these fraudulent activities and what leads to them, and still they happen. There was a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a man who said he had been a victim of the grandson in jail scam. He got a call from someone, supposedly his grandson, who said he was in a Panama City (the capital of the country, not the Florida town) jail, and needed money to get out. Without verifying the call, the man sent $3,000 to the grandson, who, of course, was not his grandson. He wanted me to publicize the incident so that other people would not be taken in. Of course, Im glad to do that, but I pointed out to him that this type of scam has been publicized in our newspaper many times. So heres the simple rule: Dont send money to anyone unless you initiate the process. If you want to send your grandkids money for a holiday, fine. But if someone calls and wants money for your grandchildren not on your life. People ask how others can be fooled into thinking they are talking to a grandchild. Well, these crooks are clever. They learn as much information as they can, and they also have a way of getting you to reveal information while you are talking. I know I have 12 grandchildren, and I probably wouldnt recognize the voices of the older ones if they called and didnt identify themselves right away. Of course there are other scams out there. Just recently, there was someone who was told they could share money that was found if they put up some of their own money in good faith. For some reason, this is called the pigeon drop. The victim didnt bite, however, and the scam failed. But that brings up another warning: Nothing is free. You dont get to keep money you havent earned. And remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter (another popular fraud). To put it simply, you worked hard for your money. Make sure you dont send it to anyone just because you get a little greedy and want more. And if someone tries to extort money from you in this fashion, call law enforcement. Maybe you can help put some of these people out of business. On the vandalism side, people in Majestic Oaks and an area near Sun Valley awoke the other morning to various types of damage and theft. It seems some marauders swept through their neighborhoods at about 4 in the morning to do their nasty deeds. Some of it was just pure meanness, damaging items, breaking car windows, etc. Others were thefts, but again, as we have emphasized in the past, it came from unlocked vehicles. If you dont lock your car, you have yourself to blame. They call them creepers, because they keep trying car doors until they find one unlocked, and then they take stuff from that car. So whether its the vandals who are creeps, or the thieves who are creepers, be aware of whats going on. And if you wake to people wandering around in the middle of the night, call 9-1-1 and let officials know. You might be helping solve, and prevent, a bunch of crimes.

T he brutal Jerry Sandusky trial came to an end last Friday night, but like many people, we think its far from over. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Sandusky: We wish hed just go away Scam artists, creeps, creepers in area Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR War against obesity and other human failings Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED God bless AmericaI realize we have a large amount of transients living here, but based on some of their opinions and lack of knowledge of America, I wonder where they are from. Though they claim to be educated, they have no idea about our history, primarily denying our Christian Heritage. Do you atheist Liberals realize that until the 1960s, no one questioned our being a Christian nation, praying in schools and other public places? Most of these prayers were In Jesus name, and every president until Obama believed and declared we were/are a Christian nation. Take a drive through our great country, you will see that we have numerous Christian churches in every city and county. Do you think having manger scenes at Christmas is a recent occurrence? When you align yourself with the Christian opposition, you are in step with Satan himself, not a great place to be. And yes, you have freedom from religion but quit trying to change our great country into something it is not and was never intended to be. I commend our County Commissioners for having the backbone to stand up to the opposition and declare We will continue having prayer In Jesus name. God will bless you for taking such a stand! Christians will no longer sit back and have nonbelieving Liberals dictate our behavior. With our decaying morals and all that is becoming wicked in America, you seem to be winning, but you will not. I have read the final chapter!

Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure The Marion County Growth Management Department (Planning Division) is now accepting applications for smalland large-scale land use changes, or amendments, to the Marion County Comprehensive Plan 2035 on a daily basis. Previously, applications were only accepted during limited application cycles throughout the year, per Florida statutes. Owners interested in changing their lands designated use, such as going from rural to commercial use, are eligible to apply for a smallor large-scale amendment. Small-scale amendment applications may be submitted for land 10 acres or less in size. Large-scale amendment applications may be submitted for any number of acres. The amendment applications may be picked up at the department (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala) or downloaded from http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/land_use.aspx beginning July 2. Required public hearings associated with the amendment requests will be scheduled as soon as possible and on an asneeded basis upon receipt of completed eligible applications. Growth Management hosts amendment application cycles as part of its activities to keep the countys comprehensive plan up to date. The plan is Marion Countys key guide for growth management and provides the framework for how the county will continue to develop. For more information about amendments to the comprehensive plan, contact Michael Kokosky, senior planner, at 352438-2600 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/growthmanagement .htm. Comp plan changes due Despite a record-breaking year of federally declared disasters in 2011, including floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires, many Americans still lack basic awareness of their local emergency communications systems. At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications. Yet, respondents said they would be more motivated to take action in an emergency by ANS alerts than any other communication, ahead of traditional warning sirens, radio and TV public services announcements and even word-of-mouth communication from friends and family. With all of the options available to keep the public informed of nearby disasters or emergencies, we were alarmed to see how many people arent aware of the existing notification systems in their communities, said Joe Wilson, president of the Industrial Systems Division, Safety and Security Group at Federal Signal. In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com MISSION FLATS By William Landay If you like hard hitting complexity in your crime novels and good cops doing bad things and bad cops doing good things, Mission Flats belongs on your bookshelf. In a well-written expose of the seedy underside of the criminal justice system, we first find young Police Chief Ben Truman of Versailles, Maine discovering a body in one of the areas vacation cottages. It turns out to be that of a Boston DA who was in the state investigating an old, unsolved murder of a police officer. Since nothing much happens in his small town, Ben opts to join investigators in Boston, taking along a former cop, 67-year-old Jack Kelly whos happy to come out of retirement. The readers immediate reaction to this move is that the squeaky clean naf of a police chief is leaving the cozy confines of Versailles for the wicked big city where he will be clearly over his head and in possible danger. And just walking around in Mission Flats is dangerous enough. Ben tries to describe the blighted area: The district is adjacent to nowhere and on the way to nowhere, dangling beneath This book features a surprise ending Franklin Park like a rotten pear. The case soon takes on much larger implications as three separate murders seem linked. And the cast of characters grows as well. Theres a shady sort of cop named Martin Gittens, an attractive prosecutor and daughter of Jack Kelly, Caroline Kelly, and a tribe of gang members. As time goes on Ben suspects a police conspiracy to pin the murders on drug pusher Harold Braxton. In almost everyones book Braxton is one thoroughly bad-ass dude. But Ben sees him differently, particularly after Braxton saves his life and after he shows great concern for his small daughter in police custody. Jack Kelly tries to address Bens anxiety and bafflement by saying, Sometimes you cant figure everything out because you cant ever really understand other people. You cant understand why they do what they do. You just have to accept a little mystery, Ben. People are mysterious, the world is mysterious. You cant know everything. Youre not supposed to. This isnt a history book. Its just the world. Its a messy place. A good read with a surprise ending.

move school resource officers, saying her opponents recommended the move. We are going to keep our safety officers. We could cut cell phones, everyone has a personal cell phone these days. We could even cut a few vacation days out of administrators pay. She also said that she fought to require students to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance. Tomyn spoke next and concentrated on his platform and goals. I have a better way. We will have safer schools, all our children will have great educational opportunities and there will be a balanced transportation budget. These resources will be managed with responsibility. I am not looking for a job. I want to return a favor. As a product of our great school system that has educated and employed me, I know feel it is my time to serve. I do not feel entitled, I feel obligated. Wagoner came up next and went on the offensive. Citing a famous Ronald Reagan quote from a presidential debate, he said to Porter, There you go again. Speaking about Porter, he said, She made several comments up here that were absolutely not true. None of these candidates up here recommended a four-day work week. As a matter of fact, those of you who listened last year, none of us recommended taking resource officers out of the classroom and none of us recommended to increase taxes. Wagoner said the job of the school district is to teach and learn. We dont have a money problem, we have a resource and allocation problem. After that, the session went to a question and answer period with the audience. One audience member (questioners were not required to identify themselves) stood up and said to Porter, Essentially you were called a liar tonight. Would you care to respond? Porter produced a loose leaf book and pulled out an agenda item from June 28, 2011, concerning the fourday week. She noted the report was signed by Tomyn, among others, and that on the back was a calendar for the proposed four-day week. She said that in her administration, when someone put their name on a report they would have to stand by it. Tomyn immediately fired back, I work for the superintendent, and Im a good soldier. Im also pretty good at figuring out complex problems and doing good presentations. He said the superintendent (Jim Yancey) asked him and a co-worker To look at the four-day week and create what might be a four-day week schedule and make a presentation before the School Board, and the pair did exactly that. We were being good soldiers and we followed his directions. We were not recommending as individual educators that the four-day week was the best thing for our students. Porter, Tomyn and Wagoner will be on the Republican primary ballot on Aug. 14. The winner will face Greene in November.Friday, June 29, 2012~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

That is why it is important for everyone receiving Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to sign up for electronic payments. These days, almost everyone gets benefit payments electronically. Today, about 90 percent of all Social Security and SSI beneficiaries receive their payments electronically. That number is increasing because the law requires that by March 1, 2013 all federal benefit payments, including Social Security and SSI payments, be made electronically. Whether you receive Social Security or SSI, you can depend on your payment arriving in your account on time, every time. If you dont already receive electronic payments, there are many good reasons to sign up. For one, less money and time spent driving to the bank to cash your check helps you save. Second, fewer paper checks, envelopes, and stamps, and less fuel to deliver the checks means savings for the government. Hurricane season is here for some areas of the country. Other regions bear the brunt of flooding. Some areas of the nation are plagued by tornadoes, and still others must deal with wildfires, severe thunderstorms, or even earthquakes. If you are unfortunate enough to be in the path of a natural disaster, the last thing you want is for your income to be interrupted because of an evacuation or a missing mailbox. With electronic payments, you know your money will be in your account on time no matter what. When on vacation, an electronic payment ensures payments will be deposited into your account on time, so theres no reason to worry about the safety of your benefit or to ask a neighbor to look out for your check when you are away. As an added bonus, many banks offer free checking accounts for people who use direct deposit because it saves the bank the cost of processing paper payments. Skip the line at the bank, save money, get your payment faster, and know you can depend on your payment being in the bank no matter what happens or where you are. You can do all of this with electronic payments. Learn more about it at www.socialsecurity.gov/deposit. Adon Williams is Social Security district manager for the Ocala office.

In coordination with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Master the Possibilities Education Center at On Top of the World had a tour of the Emergency Management Office on Northwest 30th Avenue. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and Sgt. Louis Pulford gave local residents an informative tour of the office. They explained the purpose of the facility and how much generator power they had available. Live photos from a helicopter can be viewed on the TVs and local utilities each have a station with computers and telephones to work with. An important tool in case of power failure is ham radios. There is an antenna at the Emergency Mangement facility for receiving information from outside ham radio operators. To provide enough electricity for seven days in case of a power outage the two generators only need to work at 25 percent of capacity during a test with all TVs, A/C, lights, and telephones in use. Cell phones used by the Sheriffs Office will be usable before outside ones in case a tower is unusable. PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELSgt.

Dane M. Gagnon, 28, of Southwest 161st St. Place, was located at an alternate address after video from the store showed him taking two sandwiches from the counter while a clerk had turned to make a third. He was traced through his cell phone. Because of the probation violation, he was being held with no bond. A woman who had three children with her was accused of taking items from Walmart electronics and crafts department. Heather Gayle LorissScott, 33, of West Mustang Boulevard, Beverly Hills, was taken to the county jail under $250 bond, where she was released about five hours later.

BRIEFS Debby puts blood supply at emergency levelThe flooding and storms from Tropical Storm Debby have left local blood supplies at emergency levels. With more severe weather predicted, supplies will continue to drop. In many of our cities the shelves at LifeSouth are bare. It is important to have a reserve supply of blood on hand for emergencies, but the weather and the normal summer slowdown have all but wiped out any surplus, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. I ask our donors to please grab an umbrella and come out and donate. On Sunday, part of Florida served by LifeSouth received more than five inches of rain, and coastal communities suffered minor flooding. With the storm heading north in the Gulf, the communities in Georgia and Alabama will also feel the effect. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. Call LifeSouth tollfree at 888-795-2707 or go to our website at www.lifesouth.org to find a blood drive near you.

The event took place on June 20 at Ocala West United Methodist Church, part of a candidates night also involving County Commission candidates. School Board member Jackie Porter, a late entry into the superintendents race, was the second speaker on the list, but Diana Greene, who talked first, is a Democrat and not on the ballot for the Aug. 14 primary. The other three candidates, including Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner, are Republicans. After delving into her background, in which she said was not a college graduate but came from the school of hard knocks, Porter lashed out against the others. I was the only one of these superintendent candidates to stand up against a four-day school week. That recommendation came directly from the other superintendent candidates. You dont think that was hard? I was the only one standing there among five board members, a superintendent, two deputy superintendents and a lot of executive directors. I felt the decision lacked common sense and compassion for our families and our businesses, and while this was being played out, they were all candidates. She said that the proposal died when the county found it would lose $1.8 million in state funds by not busing the fifth day of the week. In the corporate world, someones job would have been on the line for missing the mark of $1.8 million. She also said that she stood up against the recommendation to reIn just a few days, fireworks will be the highlight of Fourth of July celebrations around the country. While these sky displays are certainly fun to watch, they are responsible for thousands of injuries each year, most of which are incurred by children. Marion County Fire Rescue encourages residents to attend professional fireworks shows in lieu of setting off fireworks themselves at backyard events to prevent injuries. Even seemingly benign sparklers pose a threat as the tips of these holiday favorites burn at approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit thats three times the average baking setting. In fact, of the 8,600 injuries that occurred in 2010 as a result of fireworks, approximately 1,200 were associated with sparklers and 400 with bottle rockets, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Moreover, according to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2010 two out of every five fireworks injury victims were children under the age of 15; children ages 10 to 14 had the highest rate of fireworks-related injuries; males accounted for nearly 75 percent. Still, many of the above incidents dont stand alone. Fireworks injuries are often accompanied by property damage. In 2009 fireworks caused approximately 18,000 fires nationwide, resulting in $38 million in damage. Below are Marion County groups that are planning public fireworks: Celebrate Independence Day at the Circle Square Commons Town Square on Wednesday, July 4, from 5 to 9 p.m. The festivities will feature music by Marion Countys Best local band Second Slice, a professional patriotic skydiving show and food and craft vendors. Plus, observe a Missing Man presentation including four World War II North American T-6 model aircrafts used by the Air Force and a spectacular fireworks display beginning at 9 p.m. Parking is $5 per car for non-On Top of the World residents. Parking lots will open at 4 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs! For more information call 352854-3670 or visit: www.CircleSquareCommons.com. Ocala Jaycees God and Country Day will take place beginning at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, in the field at the corner of U.S. Highway 27 and County Road 225A. Fireworks will begin at dusk, and the free event includes bounce houses, two stages of live entertainment, food and craft vendors and monster truck rides. There will be a $1 parking fee.

Although there was some localized flooding and a couple of sinkholes, the storm produced no major damage in the area. Some events, including Marion County summer school for Wednesday, were canceled. As of Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center was monitoring a tropical wave in the Atlantic, but development was considered unlikely. 000BMNN

Bowles. I ask our donors to please grab an umbrella and come out and donate. On Sunday, part of Florida served by LifeSouth received more than five inches of rain, and coastal communities suffered minor flooding. With the storm heading north in the Gulf, the communities in Georgia and Alabama will also feel the effect. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required.

The event took place on June 20 at Ocala West United Methodist Church, part of a candidates night also involving County Commission candidates. School Board member Jackie Porter, a late entry into the superintendents race, was the second speaker on the list, but Diana Greene, who talked first, is a Democrat and not on the ballot for the Aug. 14 primary. The other three candidates, including Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner, are Republicans. After delving into her background, in which she said was not a college graduate but came from the school of hard knocks, Porter lashed out against the others. I was the only one of these superintendent candidates to stand up against a four-day school week. That recommendation came directly from the other superintendent candidates. You dont think that was hard? I was the only one standing there among five board members, a superintendent, two deputy superintendents and a lot of executive directors. I felt the decision lacked common sense and compassion for our families and our businesses, and while this was being played out, they were all candidates. She said that the proposal died when the county found it would lose $1.8 million in state funds by not busing the fifth day of the week. In the corporate world, someones job would have been on the line for missing the mark of $1.8 million. She also said that she stood up against the recommendation to reIn just a few days, fireworks will be the highlight of Fourth of July celebrations around the country. While these sky displays are certainly fun to watch, they are responsible for thousands of injuries each year, most of which are incurred by children. Marion County Fire Rescue encourages residents to attend professional fireworks shows in lieu of setting off fireworks themselves at backyard events to prevent injuries. Even seemingly benign sparklers pose a threat as the tips of these holiday favorites burn at approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit thats three times the average baking setting. In fact, of the 8,600 injuries that occurred in 2010 as a result of fireworks, approximately 1,200 were associated with sparklers and 400 with bottle rockets, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Moreover, according to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2010 two out of every five fireworks injury victims were children under the age of 15; children ages 10 to 14 had the highest rate of fireworks-related injuries; males accounted for nearly 75 percent. Still, many of the above incidents dont stand alone. Fireworks injuries are often accompanied by property damage. In 2009 fireworks caused approximately 18,000 fires nationwide, resulting in $38 million in damage. Below are Marion County groups that are planning public fireworks: Celebrate Independence Day at the Circle Square Commons Town Square on Wednesday, July 4, from 5 to 9 p.m. The festivities will feature music by Marion Countys Best local band Second Slice, a professional patriotic skydiving show and food and craft vendors. Plus, observe a Missing Man presentation including four World War II North American T-6 model aircrafts used by the Air Force and a spectacular fireworks display beginning at 9 p.m. Parking is $5 per car for non-On Top of the World residents. Parking lots will open at 4 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs! For more information call 352854-3670 or visit: www.CircleSquareCommons.com. Ocala Jaycees God and Country Day will take place beginning at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, in the field at the corner of U.S. Highway 27 and County Road 225A. Fireworks will begin at dusk, and the free event includes bounce houses, two stages of live entertainment, food and craft vendors and monster truck rides. There will be a $1 parking fee. More information can be found at http://www.facebook.com/TheOcalaJaycees. Church at the Springs will host a fireworks display event from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 1, at 5424 S.E. 58th Ave. There will also be bounce houses, water-slides, concessions and music.

Although there was some localized flooding and a couple of sinkholes, the storm produced no major damage in the area. Some events, including Marion County summer school for Wednesday, were canceled. As of Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center was monitoring a tropical wave in the Atlantic, but development was considered unlikely. 000BMNN

move school resource officers, saying her opponents recommended the move. We are going to keep our safety officers. We could cut cell phones, everyone has a personal cell phone these days. We could even cut a few vacation days out of administrators pay. She also said that she fought to require students to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance. Tomyn spoke next and concentrated on his platform and goals. I have a better way. We will have safer schools, all our children will have great educational opportunities and there will be a balanced transportation budget. These resources will be managed with responsibility. I am not looking for a job. I want to return a favor. As a product of our great school system that has educated and employed me, I know feel it is my time to serve. I do not feel entitled, I feel obligated. Wagoner came up next and went on the offensive. Citing a famous Ronald Reagan quote from a presidential debate, he said to Porter, There you go again. Speaking about Porter, he said, She made several comments up here that were absolutely not true. None of these candidates up here recommended a four-day work week. As a matter of fact, those of you who listened last year, none of us recommended taking resource officers out of the classroom and none of us recommended to increase taxes. Wagoner said the job of the school district is to teach and learn. We dont have a money problem, we have a resource and allocation problem. After that, the session went to a question and answer period with the audience. One audience member (questioners were not required to identify themselves) stood up and said to Porter, Essentially you were called a liar tonight. Would you care to respond? Porter produced a loose leaf book and pulled out an agenda item from June 28, 2011, concerning the fourday week. She noted the report was signed by Tomyn, among others, and that on the back was a calendar for the proposed four-day week. She said that in her administration, when someone put their name on a report they would have to stand by it. Tomyn immediately fired back, I work for the superintendent, and Im a good soldier. Im also pretty good at figuring out complex problems and doing good presentations. He said the superintendent (Jim Yancey) asked him and a co-worker To look at the four-day week and create what might be a four-day week schedule and make a presentation before the School Board, and the pair did exactly that. We were being good soldiers and we followed his directions. We were not recommending as individual educators that the four-day week was the best thing for our students. Porter, Tomyn and Wagoner will be on the Republican primary ballot on Aug. 14. The winner will face Greene in November.Friday, June 29, 2012~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

That is why it is important for everyone receiving Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to sign up for electronic payments. These days, almost everyone gets benefit payments electronically. Today, about 90 percent of all Social Security and SSI beneficiaries receive their payments electronically. That number is increasing because the law requires that by March 1, 2013 all federal benefit payments, including Social Security and SSI payments, be made electronically. Whether you receive Social Security or SSI, you can depend on your payment arriving in your account on time, every time. If you dont already receive electronic payments, there are many good reasons to sign up. For one, less money and time spent driving to the bank to cash your check helps you save. Second, fewer paper checks, envelopes, and stamps, and less fuel to deliver the checks means savings for the government. Hurricane season is here for some areas of the country. Other regions bear the brunt of flooding. Some areas of the nation are plagued by tornadoes, and still others must deal with wildfires, severe thunderstorms, or even earthquakes. If you are unfortunate enough to be in the path of a natural disaster, the last thing you want is for your income to be interrupted because of an evacuation or a missing mailbox. With electronic payments, you know your money will be in your account on time no matter what. When on vacation, an electronic payment ensures payments will be deposited into your account on time, so theres no reason to worry about the safety of your benefit or to ask a neighbor to look out for your check when you are away. As an added bonus, many banks offer free checking accounts for people who use direct deposit because it saves the bank the cost of processing paper payments. Skip the line at the bank, save money, get your payment faster, and know you can depend on your payment being in the bank no matter what happens or where you are. You can do all of this with electronic payments. Learn more about it at www.socialsecurity.gov/deposit. Adon Williams is Social Security district manager for the Ocala office.

In coordination with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Master the Possibilities Education Center at On Top of the World had a tour of the Emergency Management Office on Northwest 30th Avenue. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and Sgt. Louis Pulford gave local residents an informative tour of the office. They explained the purpose of the facility and how much generator power they had available. Live photos from a helicopter can be viewed on the TVs and local utilities each have a station with computers and telephones to work with. An important tool in case of power failure is ham radios. There is an antenna at the Emergency Mangement facility for receiving information from outside ham radio operators. To provide enough electricity for seven days in case of a power outage the two generators only need to work at 25 percent of capacity during a test with all TVs, A/C, lights, and telephones in use. Cell phones used by the Sheriffs Office will be usable before outside ones in case a tower is unusable. PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELSgt.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com MISSION FLATS By William Landay If you like hard hitting complexity in your crime novels and good cops doing bad things and bad cops doing good things, Mission Flats belongs on your bookshelf. In a well-written expose of the seedy underside of the criminal justice system, we first find young Police Chief Ben Truman of Versailles, Maine discovering a body in one of the areas vacation cottages. It turns out to be that of a Boston DA who was in the state investigating an old, unsolved murder of a police officer. Since nothing much happens in his small town, Ben opts to join investigators in Boston, taking along a former cop, 67-year-old Jack Kelly whos happy to come out of retirement. The readers immediate reaction to this move is that the squeaky clean naf of a police chief is leaving the cozy confines of Versailles for the wicked big city where he will be clearly over his head and in possible danger. And just walking around in Mission Flats is dangerous enough. Ben tries to describe the blighted area: The district is adjacent to nowhere and on the way to nowhere, dangling beneath This book features a surprise ending Franklin Park like a rotten pear. The case soon takes on much larger implications as three separate murders seem linked. And the cast of characters grows as well. Theres a shady sort of cop named Martin Gittens, an attractive prosecutor and daughter of Jack Kelly, Caroline Kelly, and a tribe of gang members. As time goes on Ben suspects a police conspiracy to pin the murders on drug pusher Harold Braxton. In almost everyones book Braxton is one thoroughly bad-ass dude. But Ben sees him differently, particularly after Braxton saves his life and after he shows great concern for his small daughter in police custody. Jack Kelly tries to address Bens anxiety and bafflement by saying, Sometimes you cant figure everything out because you cant ever really understand other people. You cant understand why they do what they do. You just have to accept a little mystery, Ben. People are mysterious, the world is mysterious. You cant know everything. Youre not supposed to. This isnt a history book. Its just the world. Its a messy place. A good read with a surprise ending.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be prepared to face some challenges stirred up by an envious colleague. Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure The Marion County Growth Management Department (Planning Division) is now accepting applications for smalland large-scale land use changes, or amendments, to the Marion County Comprehensive Plan 2035 on a daily basis. Previously, applications were only accepted during limited application cycles throughout the year, per Florida statutes. Owners interested in changing their lands designated use, such as going from rural to commercial use, are eligible to apply for a smallor large-scale amendment. Small-scale amendment applications may be submitted for land 10 acres or less in size. Large-scale amendment applications may be submitted for any number of acres. The amendment applications may be picked up at the department (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala) or downloaded from http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/land_use.aspx beginning July 2. Required public hearings associated with the amendment requests will be scheduled as soon as possible and on an asneeded basis upon receipt of completed eligible applications. Growth Management hosts amendment application cycles as part of its activities to keep the countys comprehensive plan up to date. The plan is Marion Countys key guide for growth management and provides the framework for how the county will continue to develop. For more information about amendments to the comprehensive plan, contact Michael Kokosky, senior planner, at 352438-2600 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/growthmanagement .htm. Comp plan changes due Despite a record-breaking year of federally declared disasters in 2011, including floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires, many Americans still lack basic awareness of their local emergency communications systems. At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications. Yet, respondents said they would be more motivated to take action in an emergency by ANS alerts than any other communication, ahead of traditional warning sirens, radio and TV public services announcements and even word-of-mouth communication from friends and family. With all of the options available to keep the public informed of nearby disasters or emergencies, we were alarmed to see how many people arent aware of the existing notification systems in their communities, said Joe Wilson, president of the Industrial Systems Division, Safety and Security Group at Federal Signal. In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... Thomas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the NannyState do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans trans-fats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nanny-control capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H. Underhill thought otherwise. He opined that the real division in the world today is not between socialism and capitalism. It is between freedom and totalitarianism. In addition, were paying thousands of federal and state employees who seem to have too little to do, and create new projects and nonsense to justify their employment until the happy day of retirement. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 29, 2012 Scams and vandals. Were dealing with all the good stuff out there today, all the people that want to see you suffer. There are all sorts of scams out there, perpetrated by people bent on one thing. They want to get your money. Weve publicized a lot of these fraudulent activities and what leads to them, and still they happen. There was a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a man who said he had been a victim of the grandson in jail scam. He got a call from someone, supposedly his grandson, who said he was in a Panama City (the capital of the country, not the Florida town) jail, and needed money to get out. Without verifying the call, the man sent $3,000 to the grandson, who, of course, was not his grandson. He wanted me to publicize the incident so that other people would not be taken in. Of course, Im glad to do that, but I pointed out to him that this type of scam has been publicized in our newspaper many times. So heres the simple rule: Dont send money to anyone unless you initiate the process. If you want to send your grandkids money for a holiday, fine. But if someone calls and wants money for your grandchildren not on your life. People ask how others can be fooled into thinking they are talking to a grandchild. Well, these crooks are clever. They learn as much information as they can, and they also have a way of getting you to reveal information while you are talking. I know I have 12 grandchildren, and I probably wouldnt recognize the voices of the older ones if they called and didnt identify themselves right away. Of course there are other scams out there. Just recently, there was someone who was told they could share money that was found if they put up some of their own money in good faith. For some reason, this is called the pigeon drop. The victim didnt bite, however, and the scam failed. But that brings up another warning: Nothing is free. You dont get to keep money you havent earned. And remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter (another popular fraud). To put it simply, you worked hard for your money. Make sure you dont send it to anyone just because you get a little greedy and want more. And if someone tries to extort money from you in this fashion, call law enforcement. Maybe you can help put some of these people out of business. On the vandalism side, people in Majestic Oaks and an area near Sun Valley awoke the other morning to various types of damage and theft. It seems some marauders swept through their neighborhoods at about 4 in the morning to do their nasty deeds. Some of it was just pure meanness, damaging items, breaking car windows, etc. Others were thefts, but again, as we have emphasized in the past, it came from unlocked vehicles. If you dont lock your car, you have yourself to blame. They call them creepers, because they keep trying car doors until they find one unlocked, and then they take stuff from that car. So whether its the vandals who are creeps, or the thieves who are creepers, be aware of whats going on. And if you wake to people wandering around in the middle of the night, call 9-1-1 and let officials know. You might be helping solve, and prevent, a bunch of crimes.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

The brutal Jerry Sandusky trial came to an end last Friday night, but like many people, we think its far from over. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Sandusky: We wish hed just go away Scam artists, creeps, creepers in area Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR War against obesity and other human failings Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED God bless AmericaI realize we have a large amount of transients living here, but based on some of their opinions and lack of knowledge of America, I wonder where they are from. Though they claim to be educated, they have no idea about our history, primarily denying our Christian Heritage. Do you atheist Liberals realize that until the 1960s, no one questioned our being a Christian nation, praying in schools and other public places? Most of these prayers were In Jesus name, and every president until Obama believed and declared we were/are a Christian nation. Take a drive through our great country, you will see that we have numerous Christian churches in every city and county. Do you think having manger scenes at Christmas is a recent occurrence? When you align yourself with the Christian opposition, you are in step with Satan himself, not a great place to be. And yes, you have freedom from religion but quit trying to change our great country into something it is not and was never intended to be. I commend our County Commissioners for having the backbone to stand up to the opposition and declare We will continue having prayer In Jesus name. God will bless you for taking such a stand! Christians will no longer sit back and have nonbelieving Liberals dictate our behavior. With our decaying morals and all that is becoming wicked in America, you seem to be winning, but you will not.

community, for having Frank here. We will miss him in addition to his wife. Now the disappointing part. I first came to the area in 1964 as an auditor for Blue Cross of Florida and subsequently of Medicare. West of I-75 there was nothing except fields and little else. Going from Ocala to Williston; was a real pain. About the only place to stay here was the Holiday Inn and nowhere to eat. So, against that setting, some years later along came a man, Kulbar Ghumman, who built Oak Run. Now remember there were no shopping centers, doctors offices, stores, gas stations, or Walmart and I could go on and on. Oh yes, 200 was a two-lane road, which was better than the now six. So this man built a community, a rural community, free of the hustle and bustle of cities and those who were city thinkers. Low and behold, along came this old guy, and his wife in 2001, to take up residence in Oak Run. Why? Because it was a peaceful and quiet community, which was left natural with trees, trees, trees. Now, Ive had my differences with Oak Run, but those have been of a not too serious nature and no longer exist. But along comes a bunch of people who feel they have rights by virtue of living in Oak Run. I can tell you they have privileges. The big hoorah now is these city dwellers, who knew when they moved here, it was a beautiful, natural community. Bear in mind people knew what they were getting into when they moved here. Now I dont want to kill a dead horse, but we now have an element who completely disregard the safety of Oak Run residents with their walking on the boulevard, even after signs were put up indicating it was not permitted. So, we have a person stating, just because the signs are on one side of the boulevard, its OK to walk on the other side. Also they want to walk to grocery stores and doctors plus some want to mirror the Villages. Now theres a bunch of bull. This walking situation is really out of hand. Even now, I see people walking on the boulevard, daily, which is against Oak Run safety rules. I have even had my car hit with things by walkers and we know people who have had golf clubs swung at their cars. The security people should patrol the boulevard and give tickets to these rule breakers, $50 per violation sounds reasonable. But for people to openly state they will violate Oak Run walking rules, is the same as breaking any law outside of Oak Run. I had someone tell me one time, if I didnt like it here leave, well, Im here. I guess that could apply to people who want city privileges in a country setting. Get it in your heads, we are a rural community and thats as it should be. Walking to Walmart and TimberRidge is ridiculous as it also would be if one were to get there by golf cart, and weve been down that road before. When these things come up, I think of that pathetic movie Dumb and Dumber. Remember Ive said in writings to the Citizen in the past, that, C or average is not too bright. I rest my case. By the way walkers, if youre hit while walking on the boulevard, youre at fault, not the driver, as the boulevard is posted. Bill Ford Oak RunProtect our waterThe decision to save Floridas drinking water is too important to leave to the politicians who care more about those who give large amounts of money for their next campaign than they do about the little people that they represent, The decision of what to do about Floridas water supply is too important to leave to a few people at the top of the food chain. This decision that affects every citizen and resident of our state should be made by every citizen and resident of the State of Florida. Please contact your state representative and plead with them to put this issue on the ballot this November and let the people decide. Jerry Segovis OcalaPurge the votersYou have outdone yourself in your editorial Purge everyone and start from scratch. Great idea. Puts everyone on the same level. Of course the race mongers would be here in a flash protesting. In order to renew my Florida drivers license I had to prove I was a U.S. citizen and a Florida resident. If I had to do that, then anyone wanting to vote should have to do the same. T.G. Giffin Palm CayNow a dictatorship?United States of America is now a dictatorship?

Call Audrey Mangan at 352-854-7074 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. who have lost their voting rights, after all you must be a citizen in order to vote? I think this is a conspiracy created by the Democrats to let the illegal aliens vote, right Ms. Pelosi? There are not going to be any purging of minorities who are citizens, for heavens sake get real people this is no longer the dark ages. These are the people who have let our president turn this country into a dictatorship. Are all you people really sure that the DOJ and the White house are not covering something up and that is why they do not show the papers asked for by Congress? If you are, then let me tell you about a bridge thats for sale too. Ms. Pelosi got up and spoke her mind(?) and then the snowball rolled on and on. The only people who have something to gain by Mr. Obamas re-election beside the politicians are the ones who pay no taxes and receive all of the non entitlements, welfare, food stamps, Medicaid etc. Wake up America! Pat Lee OcalaRomneys plan workedGov. Mitt Romneys economic plan is to reduce income taxes by 20 percent across the board and limit federal spending. With minor variations, this is what Harding-Coolidge did in the early 20s, JFK in the early 60s, and Reagan in the early 80s. And they all worked. Pres. Obamas plan is (1) increased taxes on upper incomes; (2) massive public works programs; (3) increased bureaucracies; (4) subsidizing troubled businesses; and (5) protection for labor unions. This is what Herbert Hoover did in the early 30s. How did that work? To get economic recovery, the government needs to cut taxes and get out of the way. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, June 29, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Ihave always thought about what it would be like to be wealthy. Unless I win the lottery somewhere, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States them to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy; after all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money but then I thought about whats involved and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers all they can talk about is money. Specifically, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years and I Please vote for me; I create lots of jobs OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is not theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political office. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea.

the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Thinking about July 4 takes us down the alley to some patriotic humor.Tarzan the patriotBack a long time ago Frank Buck was a great animal trapper. The San Diego Zoo asked him to capture a rare hornless rhinoceros. Frank traveled to Africa where he met Tarzan. Tarzan was painting stripes. However, you couldnt tell whether they were white stripes on a black zebra or black stripes on a white zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, I hate to bother you while youre busy, but would you happen to know the whereabouts of a hornless rhinoceros? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to find a hornless rhinoceros. Frank captured the animal, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the hornless rhinoceros. Some time later the Chicago Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a short-necked giraffe. So he went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on a zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a short-necked giraffe? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to go. Frank captured the short-necked giraffe, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the short-necked giraffe. Three days later the Smithsonian Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a trunk-less elephant. Again, Frank went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on more zebras. Frank said, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a trunk-less elephant? Tarzan, now totally peeved, broke his brush and threw it away, pointed to a bush, and out walked a trunk-less elephant. Frank captured the trunk-less elephant, thanked Tarzan who had by this time picked up a chipmunk and was painting with its tail, and traveled back to America where he delivered the trunk-less elephant. After this, Frank Buck retired, had his phone disconnected, and lived happily ever after. The moral of the story: Tarzan stripes forever.Armed and dangerousThe national arm wrestling championships are regularly held in Williston and many have heard about the man who was the champion year after year until he lost his wrestling arm in a terrible accident. This put him into a deep depression and forlorn at the prospect of never again competing at the sport he loved. A world-class surgeon in Gainesville heard of his plight. Moved with compassion he offered to perform restorative surgery, but with an unusual twist. He reasoned that if a pigs heart could be successfully transplanted into humans, he would transplant a bears foreleg to our poor arm wrestling champ, giving him another chance to complete. The surgery was a huge success and the man soon re-entered competition, beating anyone who dared to challenge him. He so quickly dispatched his opThis is the week for some patriotic humor PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank ponents that they appealed to the United States Arm Wrestling Committee, claiming that this mans transplanted arm gave him an unfair advantage. They wanted him disqualified and barred from any further competition. The committees answer was swift and brief. They noted that it would be a gross violation of this mans civil rights to forbid him from competing. They called particular attention to the fact that every American citizen clearly has the constitutional right to bear arms.No fireworksCities across the country are cutting their fireworks budgets for the Fourth of July. Apparently they just dont feel they are getting enough bang for the buck. I think Ill just listen to some Puccini, eat a sandwich from Starkist or Bumble Bee products, and drink some Earl Grey tea, because America is the land of opera, tuna, tea.Seal of approvalThe animal trainer was working with a young seal for a new show at Ocean World. The seal was taught to listen to and obey commands like, In low end and jump! or On rock and stay! The seals favorite command was however, In deep end and stay! With our summer weather many of us will celebrate Independence Day by going to the deep end of the pool and staying. May the fourth be with you!

The parade will include the Marion County Fife and Drum Corps, Police and Fire Department, Oak Run neighborhood floats, and social clubs all marching to the Orchid Club. As always there will be special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female. There is never a better time to thank all of the veterans for their many sacrifices that they and their comrades have made for our country. The cool down will be at the Orchid Club immediately following the parade. The afternoon session will be at Palm Grove commencing at approximately 1:30. The area around Palm Grove is where you get to eat and play games for prizes. The food tickets have been on sale all month.

Sailing on March 3, 2013, for 7 days cruise the tropics on the new Allure, sister ship to the Oasis of the Seas. Both ships are destinations in and of themselves. If you should choose not to go ashore at the ports of call you will have plenty to do and see onboard. Three of the most interesting places are the Promenade, Boardwalk and Central Park. Promenade features a levitating bar which ascends and descends over three decks while you sit and enjoy your favorite drink. It also has a mezzanine level looking down on the promenade deck and includes a piano bar. There is a Starbucks on the Promenade as well as other shops and it is here that the DreamWorks Animation Parade takes place. Boardwalk has a Carousel, Johnny Rockets diner and Seafood Shack plus 2 rock climbing walls and the Aqua Theatre. Central Park feels like a walk in the park with live trees, shrubbery and even a few birds flitting around. This is were the various specialty dining venues are including a Chops Grill, Giovannis Table and Park Caf to name a few. Sit on a park bench with a cup of coffee and never feel like you are onboard a ship at sea There is entertainment of course, and the featured production show is Chicago, the Musical, but there are also the fabulou skating shows, Casino Royale for the gamblers and there is Blaze, the hottest nightclub at sea. Call John and let him know you want to go to sea with him in March of 2013. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on June 22 was played on a warm and muggy day, but the rain held off long enough for all the participants to finish. The past rains have greened up the course, and the fairways and greens reflect this, making it a pleasure to be out there. The game was three best net, and 34 players participated. The winners were: first place with a 190, Mickey Klein, John DeSalvol, Ray Hagerman, and Steve Casner; second was a tie at 200 between the teams of Dick Blackburn, Don Aubrey, Paul Valois, and Paul Colatruglio, and Charlie Elder, Tom Ducz, Jan Flickinger and Duke (long ball) Slayton. Closest to the pin were Jim Lacey, Charlie Elder, John ONeill, and Don Aubrey. Stay tuned for the results of the Red, White, Blue Tournament played on the 27th and 29th. It will be a good one.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 21 we played gross, no handicap. Flight A:1st. Kerry Tims, 2nd. Sam Timmermeyer. Flight B 1st. Vange Bell, 2nd.

More than 30 people came out to answer questions that Rich Hurley put up on the big screen. The challenge intrigued and stumped; delighted and surprised those in attendance as they scrambled for answers. The evening was brightened by the large showing of new people many of whom are new residents to Cherrywood. The subject for the game was Comedians and Comedy. Donna James, Ruth Hurley and Bill and Lorraine Lavertue won the first place prize. Rich and Beverly Idone; Pia Dean and Terry Torrusio took second place. The Guppies, winners for two months running, were skunked by these two teams. Congratulations to our winners and to all of our players. Speaking of winners, so far this year, Trivia participants have donated $130 dollars to the Wounded Warriors Fund. All of our residents are encouraged to come and take part in this fun night. If you dont have a team, youll be given one when you arrive so dont be shy. Just bring a dollar to register; some snacks and beverages; a few of your brain cells and a sense of humor. The next Trivia night will be July 18 at 7 p.m., so come on out. Blood donations neededWe have an urgent need for volunteers to maintain our blood drives here at Cherrywood. Our current director is no longer able to continue this worthwhile work so we need some one or some ones to step up and step in. All that is required is a few hours of your time every couple of months; a concern for this great work; and a telephone. If you have any desire or interest at all in helping this life saving service please contact Geri in the office. If we have two or even three people to take over it will lighten the load on any individual so give it some thought. This month our Blood Drive will be on July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in front of the clubhouse. As always, we need generous people who are willing to donate their blood. In these summer months, many of our donors who are snow birds are gone but the need for life giving blood remains the same. In short we need our residents to roll up their sleeves both figuratively and literally to keep the blood mobile an active part of this community. CERT Team thanks those who submitted forms Shutter Bugs Photo ClubFriday, July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse library, the Shutter Bugs will meet for their monthly meeting.

Keep in mind that there is a limited time for getting your ticket from Geri. See you the 23rd for another fun night at Cherrywood.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident with a promising future; an interesting past or some one who has made a contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week I take the liberty to do a variation of that theme. This week I CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 will spotlight more than one person and while they are non-residents of Cherrywood, they are still quite interesting and worthy of mention in spite of being law breakers. First off is Mr. Carter Braxton from Virginia. An international trader and farmer, he amassed quite a fortune. Due to his circumstances and being an enemy of the government, his ships were impounded and his property confiscated or destroyed. When he died, he was a pauper. Another man, Mr. Thomas McKeam had to leave his family because of being wanted by the law. In spite of that fact, he later served in Congress without pay. Like Braxton, he died destitute with no financial gain to show for his efforts. Then there was Francis Lewis. He had his house destroyed and his wife taken prisoner by the authorities. She died in captivity while he hid out; a fugitive from the law. Lastly, John Hart had a similar situation. Because of his illegal actions, he was forced to leave his wifes bedside as she lay dying. His 13 children had to run for their lives as authorities closed in. When John returned home a year later, his children had disbursed through out the countryside and the widower had to hide out in the forest in fear for his life. What did these men have in common? First, before they became fugitives, they each had been highly respected individuals in their communities with excellent reputations. Second, each one of them signed the Declaration of Independence. These persons were not alone in their patriotism or in their suffering. In total, 56 men signed the Declaration knowing that they would be put to death if captured by the British. By signing such a revolutionary document, in the eyes of the British government, they were committing treason. For five of the signers, they were in fact captured and tortured before their deaths. Twelve had their properties destroyed and their homes burned. Two of these signers lost sons and one had two of his sons captured. Nine more fought in the Continental Army and died from either wounds or the hardships of the war. Another thing that all of these patriots had in common at the time they signed that wonderful document was that they were men of means and wealth. Everything they had, they risked to preserve and defend the ideas expressed in the words, We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These men were among the first of our patriots who fought for the idea that people down deep in the depths of their souls, want to be free. Because they personally wanted freedom, they rightly assumed that most Americans felt the same way. With eloquence they stated their reasons for leaving the British Empire. With courage and their own blood they stood up for these principals and with a dream for a brighter future, they did indeed sacrifice their lives and fortunes. On July 4, we will celebrate the birth of this nation with fireworks; parades; picnics; and recreation. The fireworks remind us of the rattle of musketry; the booming of cannons; the rockets red glare and the chaos of war that gave birth to our country. Parades and speeches will remind us of the rights that were so hard won during our fight for independence. Flags will wave and songs will play filling the patriotic heart with pride and hope. Many of us will enjoy picnics and trips to the beach or other travel to be with friends and family. This is a joyous demonstration that Americans have not forgotten how to pursue happiness. Celebration is the word for the day and whether we are in Washington, D.C., or San Francisco, California, or any place in between, we Americans welcome a good party. All of this being said, even at the age of 236 the United States is still a relatively young country and as such we are still going through some growing pains. Those pains may be political; economic; diplomatic or social but America has always been, since her birth, optimistic and full of promise. In spite of her problems, she remains the last best hope for mankind. This holiday as we watch fireworks; grill food; go to the beach or head to the mall, let each of us take a few minutes to think about those who gave up so much for our freedom. They deserve our undying gratitude for forging the greatest Nation on earth.

More than 30 people came out to answer questions that Rich Hurley put up on the big screen. The challenge intrigued and stumped; delighted and surprised those in attendance as they scrambled for answers. The evening was brightened by the large showing of new people many of whom are new residents to Cherrywood. The subject for the game was Comedians and Comedy. Donna James, Ruth Hurley and Bill and Lorraine Lavertue won the first place prize. Rich and Beverly Idone; Pia Dean and Terry Torrusio took second place. The Guppies, winners for two months running, were skunked by these two teams. Congratulations to our winners and to all of our players. Speaking of winners, so far this year, Trivia participants have donated $130 dollars to the Wounded Warriors Fund. All of our residents are encouraged to come and take part in this fun night. If you dont have a team, youll be given one when you arrive so dont be shy. Just bring a dollar to register; some snacks and beverages; a few of your brain cells and a sense of humor. The next Trivia night will be July 18 at 7 p.m., so come on out. Blood donations neededWe have an urgent need for volunteers to maintain our blood drives here at Cherrywood. Our current director is no longer able to continue this worthwhile work so we need some one or some ones to step up and step in. All that is required is a few hours of your time every couple of months; a concern for this great work; and a telephone. If you have any desire or interest at all in helping this life saving service please contact Geri in the office. If we have two or even three people to take over it will lighten the load on any individual so give it some thought. This month our Blood Drive will be on July 12 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in front of the clubhouse. As always, we need generous people who are willing to donate their blood. In these summer months, many of our donors who are snow birds are gone but the need for life giving blood remains the same. In short we need our residents to roll up their sleeves both figuratively and literally to keep the blood mobile an active part of this community. CERT Team thanks those who submitted forms Shutter Bugs Photo ClubFriday, July 6 at 10 a.m. in the clubhouse library, the Shutter Bugs will meet for their monthly meeting. Bring your camera; your curiosity; your artistic talent or technical knowledge and join us. We hope to have a guest speaker at this meeting and to plan our next outing. Please keep watching this column for more information.Movie Night Tuesday evening, July 3 at 7 p.m. the smell of popcorn will again filter through the clubhouse and the big screen will once more come to life for another showing of a top notch film. Julys film is Captain America starring Samuel L Jackson; Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving. This action packed feature based on the Marvel Comic Book super hero includes a romantic theme throughout the movie so it will appeal to both men and women. Free popcorn and lemonade are provided, but if you would like to bring your own favorite snacks and beverages you are welcome to do that also. Where else but Cherrywood can you get so much entertainment for free? Bring your friends and neighbors and come a little early because youll want to get a good seat. Dont miss a minute of the action.Welcome to CherrywoodOur welcoming committee is ready to start visiting our new residents.

Keep in mind that there is a limited time for getting your ticket from Geri. See you the 23rd for another fun night at Cherrywood.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident with a promising future; an interesting past or some one who has made a contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week I take the liberty to do a variation of that theme. This week I CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 will spotlight more than one person and while they are non-residents of Cherrywood, they are still quite interesting and worthy of mention in spite of being law breakers. First off is Mr. Carter Braxton from Virginia. An international trader and farmer, he amassed quite a fortune. Due to his circumstances and being an enemy of the government, his ships were impounded and his property confiscated or destroyed. When he died, he was a pauper. Another man, Mr. Thomas McKeam had to leave his family because of being wanted by the law. In spite of that fact, he later served in Congress without pay. Like Braxton, he died destitute with no financial gain to show for his efforts. Then there was Francis Lewis. He had his house destroyed and his wife taken prisoner by the authorities. She died in captivity while he hid out; a fugitive from the law. Lastly, John Hart had a similar situation. Because of his illegal actions, he was forced to leave his wifes bedside as she lay dying. His 13 children had to run for their lives as authorities closed in. When John returned home a year later, his children had disbursed through out the countryside and the widower had to hide out in the forest in fear for his life. What did these men have in common? First, before they became fugitives, they each had been highly respected individuals in their communities with excellent reputations. Second, each one of them signed the Declaration of Independence. These persons were not alone in their patriotism or in their suffering. In total, 56 men signed the Declaration knowing that they would be put to death if captured by the British. By signing such a revolutionary document, in the eyes of the British government, they were committing treason. For five of the signers, they were in fact captured and tortured before their deaths. Twelve had their properties destroyed and their homes burned. Two of these signers lost sons and one had two of his sons captured. Nine more fought in the Continental Army and died from either wounds or the hardships of the war. Another thing that all of these patriots had in common at the time they signed that wonderful document was that they were men of means and wealth. Everything they had, they risked to preserve and defend the ideas expressed in the words, We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These men were among the first of our patriots who fought for the idea that people down deep in the depths of their souls, want to be free. Because they personally wanted freedom, they rightly assumed that most Americans felt the same way. With eloquence they stated their reasons for leaving the British Empire. With courage and their own blood they stood up for these principals and with a dream for a brighter future, they did indeed sacrifice their lives and fortunes. On July 4, we will celebrate the birth of this nation with fireworks; parades; picnics; and recreation. The fireworks remind us of the rattle of musketry; the booming of cannons; the rockets red glare and the chaos of war that gave birth to our country. Parades and speeches will remind us of the rights that were so hard won during our fight for independence. Flags will wave and songs will play filling the patriotic heart with pride and hope. Many of us will enjoy picnics and trips to the beach or other travel to be with friends and family. This is a joyous demonstration that Americans have not forgotten how to pursue happiness. Celebration is the word for the day and whether we are in Washington, D.C., or San Francisco, California, or any place in between, we Americans welcome a good party. All of this being said, even at the age of 236 the United States is still a relatively young country and as such we are still going through some growing pains. Those pains may be political; economic; diplomatic or social but America has always been, since her birth, optimistic and full of promise. In spite of her problems, she remains the last best hope for mankind. This holiday as we watch fireworks; grill food; go to the beach or head to the mall, let each of us take a few minutes to think about those who gave up so much for our freedom. They deserve our undying gratitude for forging the greatest Nation on earth.

The parade will include the Marion County Fife and Drum Corps, Police and Fire Department, Oak Run neighborhood floats, and social clubs all marching to the Orchid Club. As always there will be special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female. There is never a better time to thank all of the veterans for their many sacrifices that they and their comrades have made for our country. The cool down will be at the Orchid Club immediately following the parade. The afternoon session will be at Palm Grove commencing at approximately 1:30. The area around Palm Grove is where you get to eat and play games for prizes. The food tickets have been on sale all month.

Sailing on March 3, 2013, for 7 days cruise the tropics on the new Allure, sister ship to the Oasis of the Seas. Both ships are destinations in and of themselves. If you should choose not to go ashore at the ports of call you will have plenty to do and see onboard. Three of the most interesting places are the Promenade, Boardwalk and Central Park. Promenade features a levitating bar which ascends and descends over three decks while you sit and enjoy your favorite drink. It also has a mezzanine level looking down on the promenade deck and includes a piano bar. There is a Starbucks on the Promenade as well as other shops and it is here that the DreamWorks Animation Parade takes place. Boardwalk has a Carousel, Johnny Rockets diner and Seafood Shack plus 2 rock climbing walls and the Aqua Theatre. Central Park feels like a walk in the park with live trees, shrubbery and even a few birds flitting around. This is were the various specialty dining venues are including a Chops Grill, Giovannis Table and Park Caf to name a few. Sit on a park bench with a cup of coffee and never feel like you are onboard a ship at sea There is entertainment of course, and the featured production show is Chicago, the Musical, but there are also the fabulou skating shows, Casino Royale for the gamblers and there is Blaze, the hottest nightclub at sea. Call John and let him know you want to go to sea with him in March of 2013. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on June 22 was played on a warm and muggy day, but the rain held off long enough for all the participants to finish. The past rains have greened up the course, and the fairways and greens reflect this, making it a pleasure to be out there. The game was three best net, and 34 players participated. The winners were: first place with a 190, Mickey Klein, John DeSalvol, Ray Hagerman, and Steve Casner; second was a tie at 200 between the teams of Dick Blackburn, Don Aubrey, Paul Valois, and Paul Colatruglio, and Charlie Elder, Tom Ducz, Jan Flickinger and Duke (long ball) Slayton. Closest to the pin were Jim Lacey, Charlie Elder, John ONeill, and Don Aubrey. Stay tuned for the results of the Red, White, Blue Tournament played on the 27th and 29th. It will be a good one.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn June 21 we played gross, no handicap. Flight A:1st. Kerry Tims, 2nd. Sam Timmermeyer. Flight B 1st. Vange Bell, 2nd.

the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Thinking about July 4 takes us down the alley to some patriotic humor.Tarzan the patriotBack a long time ago Frank Buck was a great animal trapper. The San Diego Zoo asked him to capture a rare hornless rhinoceros. Frank traveled to Africa where he met Tarzan. Tarzan was painting stripes. However, you couldnt tell whether they were white stripes on a black zebra or black stripes on a white zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, I hate to bother you while youre busy, but would you happen to know the whereabouts of a hornless rhinoceros? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to find a hornless rhinoceros. Frank captured the animal, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the hornless rhinoceros. Some time later the Chicago Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a short-necked giraffe. So he went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on a zebra. Frank asked Tarzan, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a short-necked giraffe? Tarzan put down his brush and told Frank where to go. Frank captured the short-necked giraffe, thanked Tarzan who had gone back to painting the zebra, and traveled back to America where he delivered the short-necked giraffe. Three days later the Smithsonian Zoo called and asked Frank to get them a trunk-less elephant. Again, Frank went back to Africa and found Tarzan who was painting stripes on more zebras. Frank said, Would you happen to know the whereabouts of a trunk-less elephant? Tarzan, now totally peeved, broke his brush and threw it away, pointed to a bush, and out walked a trunk-less elephant. Frank captured the trunk-less elephant, thanked Tarzan who had by this time picked up a chipmunk and was painting with its tail, and traveled back to America where he delivered the trunk-less elephant. After this, Frank Buck retired, had his phone disconnected, and lived happily ever after. The moral of the story: Tarzan stripes forever.Armed and dangerousThe national arm wrestling championships are regularly held in Williston and many have heard about the man who was the champion year after year until he lost his wrestling arm in a terrible accident. This put him into a deep depression and forlorn at the prospect of never again competing at the sport he loved. A world-class surgeon in Gainesville heard of his plight. Moved with compassion he offered to perform restorative surgery, but with an unusual twist. He reasoned that if a pigs heart could be successfully transplanted into humans, he would transplant a bears foreleg to our poor arm wrestling champ, giving him another chance to complete. The surgery was a huge success and the man soon re-entered competition, beating anyone who dared to challenge him. He so quickly dispatched his opThis is the week for some patriotic humor PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank ponents that they appealed to the United States Arm Wrestling Committee, claiming that this mans transplanted arm gave him an unfair advantage. They wanted him disqualified and barred from any further competition. The committees answer was swift and brief. They noted that it would be a gross violation of this mans civil rights to forbid him from competing. They called particular attention to the fact that every American citizen clearly has the constitutional right to bear arms.No fireworksCities across the country are cutting their fireworks budgets for the Fourth of July. Apparently they just dont feel they are getting enough bang for the buck. I think Ill just listen to some Puccini, eat a sandwich from Starkist or Bumble Bee products, and drink some Earl Grey tea, because America is the land of opera, tuna, tea.Seal of approvalThe animal trainer was working with a young seal for a new show at Ocean World. The seal was taught to listen to and obey commands like, In low end and jump! or On rock and stay! The seals favorite command was however, In deep end and stay! With our summer weather many of us will celebrate Independence Day by going to the deep end of the pool and staying. May the fourth be with you!

Call Audrey Mangan at 352-854-7074 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. who have lost their voting rights, after all you must be a citizen in order to vote? I think this is a conspiracy created by the Democrats to let the illegal aliens vote, right Ms. Pelosi? There are not going to be any purging of minorities who are citizens, for heavens sake get real people this is no longer the dark ages. These are the people who have let our president turn this country into a dictatorship. Are all you people really sure that the DOJ and the White house are not covering something up and that is why they do not show the papers asked for by Congress? If you are, then let me tell you about a bridge thats for sale too. Ms. Pelosi got up and spoke her mind(?) and then the snowball rolled on and on. The only people who have something to gain by Mr. Obamas re-election beside the politicians are the ones who pay no taxes and receive all of the non entitlements, welfare, food stamps, Medicaid etc. Wake up America! Pat Lee OcalaRomneys plan workedGov. Mitt Romneys economic plan is to reduce income taxes by 20 percent across the board and limit federal spending. With minor variations, this is what Harding-Coolidge did in the early 20s, JFK in the early 60s, and Reagan in the early 80s. And they all worked. Pres. Obamas plan is (1) increased taxes on upper incomes; (2) massive public works programs; (3) increased bureaucracies; (4) subsidizing troubled businesses; and (5) protection for labor unions. This is what Herbert Hoover did in the early 30s. How did that work? To get economic recovery, the government needs to cut taxes and get out of the way. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, June 29, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Ihave always thought about what it would be like to be wealthy. Unless I win the lottery somewhere, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States them to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy; after all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money but then I thought about whats involved and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers all they can talk about is money. Specifically, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years and I Please vote for me; I create lots of jobs OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is not theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political office. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea.

community, for having Frank here. We will miss him in addition to his wife. Now the disappointing part. I first came to the area in 1964 as an auditor for Blue Cross of Florida and subsequently of Medicare. West of I-75 there was nothing except fields and little else. Going from Ocala to Williston; was a real pain. About the only place to stay here was the Holiday Inn and nowhere to eat. So, against that setting, some years later along came a man, Kulbar Ghumman, who built Oak Run. Now remember there were no shopping centers, doctors offices, stores, gas stations, or Walmart and I could go on and on. Oh yes, 200 was a two-lane road, which was better than the now six. So this man built a community, a rural community, free of the hustle and bustle of cities and those who were city thinkers. Low and behold, along came this old guy, and his wife in 2001, to take up residence in Oak Run. Why? Because it was a peaceful and quiet community, which was left natural with trees, trees, trees. Now, Ive had my differences with Oak Run, but those have been of a not too serious nature and no longer exist. But along comes a bunch of people who feel they have rights by virtue of living in Oak Run. I can tell you they have privileges. The big hoorah now is these city dwellers, who knew when they moved here, it was a beautiful, natural community. Bear in mind people knew what they were getting into when they moved here. Now I dont want to kill a dead horse, but we now have an element who completely disregard the safety of Oak Run residents with their walking on the boulevard, even after signs were put up indicating it was not permitted. So, we have a person stating, just because the signs are on one side of the boulevard, its OK to walk on the other side. Also they want to walk to grocery stores and doctors plus some want to mirror the Villages. Now theres a bunch of bull. This walking situation is really out of hand. Even now, I see people walking on the boulevard, daily, which is against Oak Run safety rules. I have even had my car hit with things by walkers and we know people who have had golf clubs swung at their cars. The security people should patrol the boulevard and give tickets to these rule breakers, $50 per violation sounds reasonable. But for people to openly state they will violate Oak Run walking rules, is the same as breaking any law outside of Oak Run. I had someone tell me one time, if I didnt like it here leave, well, Im here. I guess that could apply to people who want city privileges in a country setting. Get it in your heads, we are a rural community and thats as it should be. Walking to Walmart and TimberRidge is ridiculous as it also would be if one were to get there by golf cart, and weve been down that road before. When these things come up, I think of that pathetic movie Dumb and Dumber. Remember Ive said in writings to the Citizen in the past, that, C or average is not too bright. I rest my case. By the way walkers, if youre hit while walking on the boulevard, youre at fault, not the driver, as the boulevard is posted. Bill Ford Oak RunProtect our waterThe decision to save Floridas drinking water is too important to leave to the politicians who care more about those who give large amounts of money for their next campaign than they do about the little people that they represent, The decision of what to do about Floridas water supply is too important to leave to a few people at the top of the food chain. This decision that affects every citizen and resident of our state should be made by every citizen and resident of the State of Florida. Please contact your state representative and plead with them to put this issue on the ballot this November and let the people decide. Jerry Segovis OcalaPurge the votersYou have outdone yourself in your editorial Purge everyone and start from scratch. Great idea. Puts everyone on the same level. Of course the race mongers would be here in a flash protesting. In order to renew my Florida drivers license I had to prove I was a U.S. citizen and a Florida resident. If I had to do that, then anyone wanting to vote should have to do the same. T.G. Giffin Palm CayNow a dictatorship?United States of America is now a dictatorship? I cannot believe that the citizens of the USA dont mind at all if non citizens vote in our elections. This is exactly what Mr. Holder and President Obama are saying.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... Thomas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the NannyState do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans trans-fats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nanny-control capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H. Underhill thought otherwise. He opined that the real division in the world today is not between socialism and capitalism. It is between freedom and totalitarianism. In addition, were paying thousands of federal and state employees who seem to have too little to do, and create new projects and nonsense to justify their employment until the happy day of retirement. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 29, 2012 Scams and vandals. Were dealing with all the good stuff out there today, all the people that want to see you suffer. There are all sorts of scams out there, perpetrated by people bent on one thing. They want to get your money. Weve publicized a lot of these fraudulent activities and what leads to them, and still they happen. There was a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a man who said he had been a victim of the grandson in jail scam. He got a call from someone, supposedly his grandson, who said he was in a Panama City (the capital of the country, not the Florida town) jail, and needed money to get out. Without verifying the call, the man sent $3,000 to the grandson, who, of course, was not his grandson. He wanted me to publicize the incident so that other people would not be taken in. Of course, Im glad to do that, but I pointed out to him that this type of scam has been publicized in our newspaper many times. So heres the simple rule: Dont send money to anyone unless you initiate the process. If you want to send your grandkids money for a holiday, fine. But if someone calls and wants money for your grandchildren not on your life. People ask how others can be fooled into thinking they are talking to a grandchild. Well, these crooks are clever. They learn as much information as they can, and they also have a way of getting you to reveal information while you are talking. I know I have 12 grandchildren, and I probably wouldnt recognize the voices of the older ones if they called and didnt identify themselves right away. Of course there are other scams out there. Just recently, there was someone who was told they could share money that was found if they put up some of their own money in good faith. For some reason, this is called the pigeon drop. The victim didnt bite, however, and the scam failed. But that brings up another warning: Nothing is free. You dont get to keep money you havent earned. And remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter (another popular fraud). To put it simply, you worked hard for your money. Make sure you dont send it to anyone just because you get a little greedy and want more. And if someone tries to extort money from you in this fashion, call law enforcement. Maybe you can help put some of these people out of business. On the vandalism side, people in Majestic Oaks and an area near Sun Valley awoke the other morning to various types of damage and theft. It seems some marauders swept through their neighborhoods at about 4 in the morning to do their nasty deeds. Some of it was just pure meanness, damaging items, breaking car windows, etc. Others were thefts, but again, as we have emphasized in the past, it came from unlocked vehicles. If you dont lock your car, you have yourself to blame. They call them creepers, because they keep trying car doors until they find one unlocked, and then they take stuff from that car. So whether its the vandals who are creeps, or the thieves who are creepers, be aware of whats going on. And if you wake to people wandering around in the middle of the night, call 9-1-1 and let officials know. You might be helping solve, and prevent, a bunch of crimes.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

The brutal Jerry Sandusky trial came to an end last Friday night, but like many people, we think its far from over. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Sandusky: We wish hed just go away Scam artists, creeps, creepers in area Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR War against obesity and other human failings Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED God bless AmericaI realize we have a large amount of transients living here, but based on some of their opinions and lack of knowledge of America, I wonder where they are from. Though they claim to be educated, they have no idea about our history, primarily denying our Christian Heritage. Do you atheist Liberals realize that until the 1960s, no one questioned our being a Christian nation, praying in schools and other public places? Most of these prayers were In Jesus name, and every president until Obama believed and declared we were/are a Christian nation. Take a drive through our great country, you will see that we have numerous Christian churches in every city and county. Do you think having manger scenes at Christmas is a recent occurrence? When you align yourself with the Christian opposition, you are in step with Satan himself, not a great place to be. And yes, you have freedom from religion but quit trying to change our great country into something it is not and was never intended to be. I commend our County Commissioners for having the backbone to stand up to the opposition and declare We will continue having prayer In Jesus name. God will bless you for taking such a stand! Christians will no longer sit back and have nonbelieving Liberals dictate our behavior. With our decaying morals and all that is becoming wicked in America, you seem to be winning, but you will not.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be prepared to face some challenges stirred up by an envious colleague. Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Leisure The Marion County Growth Management Department (Planning Division) is now accepting applications for smalland large-scale land use changes, or amendments, to the Marion County Comprehensive Plan 2035 on a daily basis. Previously, applications were only accepted during limited application cycles throughout the year, per Florida statutes. Owners interested in changing their lands designated use, such as going from rural to commercial use, are eligible to apply for a smallor large-scale amendment. Small-scale amendment applications may be submitted for land 10 acres or less in size. Large-scale amendment applications may be submitted for any number of acres. The amendment applications may be picked up at the department (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala) or downloaded from http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/land_use.aspx beginning July 2. Required public hearings associated with the amendment requests will be scheduled as soon as possible and on an asneeded basis upon receipt of completed eligible applications. Growth Management hosts amendment application cycles as part of its activities to keep the countys comprehensive plan up to date. The plan is Marion Countys key guide for growth management and provides the framework for how the county will continue to develop.

Comp plan changes due Despite a record-breaking year of federally declared disasters in 2011, including floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires, many Americans still lack basic awareness of their local emergency communications systems. At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications. Yet, respondents said they would be more motivated to take action in an emergency by ANS alerts than any other communication, ahead of traditional warning sirens, radio and TV public services announcements and even word-of-mouth communication from friends and family. With all of the options available to keep the public informed of nearby disasters or emergencies, we were alarmed to see how many people arent aware of the existing notification systems in their communities, said Joe Wilson, president of the Industrial Systems Division, Safety and Security Group at Federal Signal. In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency.

Friday, June 29, 2012~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 29, 2012 www.smcitizen.com MISSION FLATS By William Landay If you like hard hitting complexity in your crime novels and good cops doing bad things and bad cops doing good things, Mission Flats belongs on your bookshelf. In a well-written expose of the seedy underside of the criminal justice system, we first find young Police Chief Ben Truman of Versailles, Maine discovering a body in one of the areas vacation cottages. It turns out to be that of a Boston DA who was in the state investigating an old, unsolved murder of a police officer. Since nothing much happens in his small town, Ben opts to join investigators in Boston, taking along a former cop, 67-year-old Jack Kelly whos happy to come out of retirement. The readers immediate reaction to this move is that the squeaky clean naf of a police chief is leaving the cozy confines of Versailles for the wicked big city where he will be clearly over his head and in possible danger. And just walking around in Mission Flats is dangerous enough. Ben tries to describe the blighted area: The district is adjacent to nowhere and on the way to nowhere, dangling beneath This book features a surprise ending Franklin Park like a rotten pear. The case soon takes on much larger implications as three separate murders seem linked. And the cast of characters grows as well. Theres a shady sort of cop named Martin Gittens, an attractive prosecutor and daughter of Jack Kelly, Caroline Kelly, and a tribe of gang members. As time goes on Ben suspects a police conspiracy to pin the murders on drug pusher Harold Braxton. In almost everyones book Braxton is one thoroughly bad-ass dude. But Ben sees him differently, particularly after Braxton saves his life and after he shows great concern for his small daughter in police custody. Jack Kelly tries to address Bens anxiety and bafflement by saying, Sometimes you cant figure everything out because you cant ever really understand other people. You cant understand why they do what they do. You just have to accept a little mystery, Ben. People are mysterious, the world is mysterious. You cant know everything. Youre not supposed to. This isnt a history book. Its just the world. Its a messy place. A good read with a surprise ending.

move school resource officers, saying her opponents recommended the move. We are going to keep our safety officers. We could cut cell phones, everyone has a personal cell phone these days. We could even cut a few vacation days out of administrators pay. She also said that she fought to require students to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance. Tomyn spoke next and concentrated on his platform and goals. I have a better way. We will have safer schools, all our children will have great educational opportunities and there will be a balanced transportation budget. These resources will be managed with responsibility. I am not looking for a job. I want to return a favor. As a product of our great school system that has educated and employed me, I know feel it is my time to serve. I do not feel entitled, I feel obligated. Wagoner came up next and went on the offensive. Citing a famous Ronald Reagan quote from a presidential debate, he said to Porter, There you go again. Speaking about Porter, he said, She made several comments up here that were absolutely not true. None of these candidates up here recommended a four-day work week. As a matter of fact, those of you who listened last year, none of us recommended taking resource officers out of the classroom and none of us recommended to increase taxes. Wagoner said the job of the school district is to teach and learn. We dont have a money problem, we have a resource and allocation problem. After that, the session went to a question and answer period with the audience. One audience member (questioners were not required to identify themselves) stood up and said to Porter, Essentially you were called a liar tonight. Would you care to respond? Porter produced a loose leaf book and pulled out an agenda item from June 28, 2011, concerning the fourday week. She noted the report was signed by Tomyn, among others, and that on the back was a calendar for the proposed four-day week. She said that in her administration, when someone put their name on a report they would have to stand by it. Tomyn immediately fired back, I work for the superintendent, and Im a good soldier. Im also pretty good at figuring out complex problems and doing good presentations. He said the superintendent (Jim Yancey) asked him and a co-worker To look at the four-day week and create what might be a four-day week schedule and make a presentation before the School Board, and the pair did exactly that. We were being good soldiers and we followed his directions. We were not recommending as individual educators that the four-day week was the best thing for our students. Porter, Tomyn and Wagoner will be on the Republican primary ballot on Aug. 14. The winner will face Greene in November.Friday, June 29, 2012~ 3 www.smcitizen.com SOUTH MARION Citizen The South Marion Citizen is a free community newspaper covering news of communities in southwest Marion County including Oak Run, Pine Run, Palm Cay, On Top of the World, Kingsland Country Estates, Countryside Farms, Marion Landing, Majestic Oaks, Hidden Lake, Woods and Meadows Estates, Paddock Farms, Saddle Oak Club, Deer Creek, Cherrywood Estates, Hardwood Trails, Candler Hills, Country Oaks, and Harvest Meadows, among others.

That is why it is important for everyone receiving Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to sign up for electronic payments. These days, almost everyone gets benefit payments electronically. Today, about 90 percent of all Social Security and SSI beneficiaries receive their payments electronically. That number is increasing because the law requires that by March 1, 2013 all federal benefit payments, including Social Security and SSI payments, be made electronically. Whether you receive Social Security or SSI, you can depend on your payment arriving in your account on time, every time. If you dont already receive electronic payments, there are many good reasons to sign up. For one, less money and time spent driving to the bank to cash your check helps you save. Second, fewer paper checks, envelopes, and stamps, and less fuel to deliver the checks means savings for the government. Hurricane season is here for some areas of the country. Other regions bear the brunt of flooding. Some areas of the nation are plagued by tornadoes, and still others must deal with wildfires, severe thunderstorms, or even earthquakes. If you are unfortunate enough to be in the path of a natural disaster, the last thing you want is for your income to be interrupted because of an evacuation or a missing mailbox. With electronic payments, you know your money will be in your account on time no matter what. When on vacation, an electronic payment ensures payments will be deposited into your account on time, so theres no reason to worry about the safety of your benefit or to ask a neighbor to look out for your check when you are away. As an added bonus, many banks offer free checking accounts for people who use direct deposit because it saves the bank the cost of processing paper payments. Skip the line at the bank, save money, get your payment faster, and know you can depend on your payment being in the bank no matter what happens or where you are. You can do all of this with electronic payments. Learn more about it at www.socialsecurity.gov/deposit. Adon Williams is Social Security district manager for the Ocala office.

In coordination with the Marion County Sheriffs Office, the Master the Possibilities Education Center at On Top of the World had a tour of the Emergency Management Office on Northwest 30th Avenue. Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and Sgt. Louis Pulford gave local residents an informative tour of the office. They explained the purpose of the facility and how much generator power they had available. Live photos from a helicopter can be viewed on the TVs and local utilities each have a station with computers and telephones to work with. An important tool in case of power failure is ham radios. There is an antenna at the Emergency Mangement facility for receiving information from outside ham radio operators. To provide enough electricity for seven days in case of a power outage the two generators only need to work at 25 percent of capacity during a test with all TVs, A/C, lights, and telephones in use. Cell phones used by the Sheriffs Office will be usable before outside ones in case a tower is unusable. PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELSgt.

Dane M. Gagnon, 28, of Southwest 161st St. Place, was located at an alternate address after video from the store showed him taking two sandwiches from the counter while a clerk had turned to make a third.

BRIEFS Debby puts blood supply at emergency levelThe flooding and storms from Tropical Storm Debby have left local blood supplies at emergency levels. With more severe weather predicted, supplies will continue to drop. In many of our cities the shelves at LifeSouth are bare. It is important to have a reserve supply of blood on hand for emergencies, but the weather and the normal summer slowdown have all but wiped out any surplus, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. I ask our donors to please grab an umbrella and come out and donate. On Sunday, part of Florida served by LifeSouth received more than five inches of rain, and coastal communities suffered minor flooding. With the storm heading north in the Gulf, the communities in Georgia and Alabama will also feel the effect. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. Call LifeSouth tollfree at 888-795-2707 or go to our website at www.lifesouth.org to find a blood drive near you.

The event took place on June 20 at Ocala West United Methodist Church, part of a candidates night also involving County Commission candidates. School Board member Jackie Porter, a late entry into the superintendents race, was the second speaker on the list, but Diana Greene, who talked first, is a Democrat and not on the ballot for the Aug. 14 primary. The other three candidates, including Porter, George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner, are Republicans. After delving into her background, in which she said was not a college graduate but came from the school of hard knocks, Porter lashed out against the others. I was the only one of these superintendent candidates to stand up against a four-day school week. That recommendation came directly from the other superintendent candidates. You dont think that was hard? I was the only one standing there among five board members, a superintendent, two deputy superintendents and a lot of executive directors. I felt the decision lacked common sense and compassion for our families and our businesses, and while this was being played out, they were all candidates. She said that the proposal died when the county found it would lose $1.8 million in state funds by not busing the fifth day of the week. In the corporate world, someones job would have been on the line for missing the mark of $1.8 million. She also said that she stood up against the recommendation to reIn just a few days, fireworks will be the highlight of Fourth of July celebrations around the country. While these sky displays are certainly fun to watch, they are responsible for thousands of injuries each year, most of which are incurred by children. Marion County Fire Rescue encourages residents to attend professional fireworks shows in lieu of setting off fireworks themselves at backyard events to prevent injuries. Even seemingly benign sparklers pose a threat as the tips of these holiday favorites burn at approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit thats three times the average baking setting. In fact, of the 8,600 injuries that occurred in 2010 as a result of fireworks, approximately 1,200 were associated with sparklers and 400 with bottle rockets, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Moreover, according to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2010 two out of every five fireworks injury victims were children under the age of 15; children ages 10 to 14 had the highest rate of fireworks-related injuries; males accounted for nearly 75 percent. Still, many of the above incidents dont stand alone. Fireworks injuries are often accompanied by property damage. In 2009 fireworks caused approximately 18,000 fires nationwide, resulting in $38 million in damage. Below are Marion County groups that are planning public fireworks: Celebrate Independence Day at the Circle Square Commons Town Square on Wednesday, July 4, from 5 to 9 p.m. The festivities will feature music by Marion Countys Best local band Second Slice, a professional patriotic skydiving show and food and craft vendors. Plus, observe a Missing Man presentation including four World War II North American T-6 model aircrafts used by the Air Force and a spectacular fireworks display beginning at 9 p.m. Parking is $5 per car for non-On Top of the World residents. Parking lots will open at 4 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs! For more information call 352854-3670 or visit: www.CircleSquareCommons.com. Ocala Jaycees God and Country Day will take place beginning at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, in the field at the corner of U.S. Highway 27 and County Road 225A. Fireworks will begin at dusk, and the free event includes bounce houses, two stages of live entertainment, food and craft vendors and monster truck rides. There will be a $1 parking fee.

PLEASESEEDEBATE PAGE3 Debby moving away from areaAfter several days of hanging out in the Gulf, Tropical Storm Debby, now downgraded to a tropical depression, moved across Marion County late Tuesday and early Wednesday and is expected to move out to sea. Although there was some localized flooding and a couple of sinkholes, the storm produced no major damage in the area. Some events, including Marion County summer school for Wednesday, were canceled. As of Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center was monitoring a tropical wave in the Atlantic, but development was considered unlikely. 000BMNN
