LATE NEWS Progress Energy warns about utility bill scam Progress Energy is urging customers be on alert for a new utility bill payment scam affecting customers across the country. Scammers claim that President Obama will pay customers utility bills through a new federal program. Progress Energy has received reports of customers who have been contacted about this scam in its Carolinas and Florida service territories. According to the Better Business Bureau, customers have been contacted in person and through fliers, social media and text messages with claims that President Obama is providing credits or applying payments to utility bills. To receive the money, scammers claim they need the customers Social Security and bank routing numbers. In return, customers are given a false bank routing number that will supposedly pay their utility bills. In reality, there is no money, and customers believe they have paid their bills when in fact they have not. Progress Energy does not contact customers to obtain personally identifiable information. In addition, the company encourages customers and others not to open their door for utility workers INDEX Cherrywood......................16 Judis Journal.......................6 Marion Landing................13 Oak Run...............................19 Obituary................................3 Opinion`................................8 Out to Pastor........................5 Paws and Claws`.................3 Pun Alley.............................20 Puzzles.................................23CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, JULY 6, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 6 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, July 6, 2012 www.smcitizen.com PHOTO BY JIM CLARKTrash bins sit outside the Ocala Social Security office, which was damaged by floods from Tropical Storm Debby.

Social Security office closed Flooding from tropical storm means no local site until August The large trash bins are in the parking lot, and material is being removed from the Ocala Social Security office.

The office is scheduled to move to a new location in August. Since the damage to the current location will take several months to repair, it will remain closed and will reopen at the new location in August. The closing was reported last week on the websites of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.According to Social Security officials, most Social Security business does not require a visit to the office.

FACTORY TRAINED TECHNICIANS FREE CAR WASH W/ANY SERVICE Come in and meet the new SERVICE MANAGER and GM Come in and meet the new SERVICE MANAGER and GM Carnival held for residents at Hampton Manor on 484 Ann Marie Malove, executive director, and Joe Lingerfelt, nurse manager, put together an indoor carnival for residents of Hampt on Manor on June 23. There was one outdoor event where the dunking tank was put. The cotton candy machine malfunctioned but there was lots of popcorn being made as well as a toilet paper roll throw, and throwing a small ball into holes. A clown group from Summerfield pain ted faces and blew up long thin balloons which they twisted into various shapes and gave to residents and families. The biggest hit was a pie eating contest where some family members had whipped cream covered pies in front of them. On signal they were to see who could eat a pie the fastest without using utensils. Their faces were a mess at the finish but they enjoyed making the mess. (Photos by Mike Roppel) Showing off their new balloon hats are, from left, Arlene Potocnik, Joanne Armour, and Rae Lund. Premade ice cream sundaes of different flavors and a choice of toppings were also available for residents and families at the carnival. This young fellow had his mouth open ready to eat as he was served his sundae. More photos from the Hollywood 16 premiere of John Travoltas Savages Contributing photographer Ron Ratner joined the crowd that welcomed actor John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, to the Hol lywood 16 Theater in Ocala for the opening of his new movie, Savages. In addition to the photo on Page 1, he submitted these photos.

Progress Energy employees carry company identification badges with photographs. But because identification badges, vehicle signs and clothing can be fabricated to look authentic, none of these is sufficient to verify a persons identity. Other than in emergencies or safetyrelated issues, there are almost no instances when a representative of Progress Energy would come to a customers home unannounced and ask to enter to perform work or provide a service. Any homeowner in doubt about the identity of someone claiming to be a Progress Energy employee should keep the door closed and locked and call Progress Energys customer service center 1-800-700-8744 in Florida to confirm the employees identity and need for entry. Customers who are contacted by phone, email, through social media or through other channels can verify an individuals affiliation with Progress Energy by calling the same number.

Ocala Civic Theatre announces auditions for Best Little Whorehouse in Texas Check out our website www.smcitizen.com A young mother cat chose Cherrywood to have her first litter. Just a baby herself, she had 5 beautiful kittens four black and white males and one tabby female. SPCA received a call from a resident advising there were kittens in her bushes. Within three days the mother and her five kids were trapped and went into foster care. Mama was spayed through the Trap Neuter Release program operated by Sheltering Hands and the family was taken in by Arlene Cole, a SPCA foster parent. The kittens are now 3 months old, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested and ready for their permanent homes. The newest addition to our cat family is only seven weeks old and was found in a yard in OTOW. Tinkerbell is a feisty tabby female and ready to take on the world. She is available on a preadopt basis. To meet and adopt Tinkerbell or the Cherrywood crew, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. WARNING!! They are already spoiled and love home cooked chicken and fish. If you do not want to tackle the energy of a kitten, we have several other cats that need forever homes: two teenage cats who are seven months old, a mature four year old, and a senior cat who is about eight years old. They have been staying at foster mom Arlenes but would much prefer to be only cats in their own loving household. Pictures of all these kitties have been posted at area grocery stores and veterinarian offices, or call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to see the cats in person. Maybe you like cats but are not ready to commit to bringing one permanently into your home. Fostering would be a perfect way to enjoy the company of a cat while helping him or her find a home. Foster parents are desperately needed by all the rescue organizations. The SPCA is especially in need of volunteer fosters because we dont have a shelter and cant help if we dont have a foster home available. You do not need to be a member of the SPCA to volunteer, just a love of aniKittens found in Cherrywood need home P AWS AND CLAWS M D Maria Devine These kittens were found in Cherrywood.

What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of TV. I was half dozing, as is usually my condition after such a supper, when my wife startled me with a question. It was a news program on television updating us with the latest political scratch-talk. If it were not for politics, the airwaves would be silent. Oh, for those wonderful sounds of silence. Personally, I would be glad to double my tax rate if in doing so we could put to silence all this political-scratch-talk. I call it scratch-talk because whoever is talking is trying to scratch somebodys back even if it is just their own. I guess we have a lot of itchy backs in this country. Thankfully, we have an endless supply of backscratching politicians. It does not matter which way the wind is blowing; each political party says it is blowing in their direction. I guess you have to go eight years to Harvard and have a student loan debt of $120,000 to understand how that works. If you do not mind, I just do not want to know how it works. With the politicians unable to create work in our country for common Americans, the real Americans, they sure know how to work a situation, usually to their advantage. If they could put all of this to work for the good of the ordinary American, I would feel happier about paying my taxes. As it is, I pay my taxes but not happily. Back to my wifes question. Who are, she said very carefully, the real Americans in this country? Then she paused for a moment and followed it with this question, Who does America really belong to? Well, those two questions got me thinking. Who are the real Americans? Are they Republicans, Democrats or Independents? I know there is a bunch of other miscellaneous political parties but I cannot think of them right now. Which one is the American Party? If I do not like any political party, where does that leave me? I am all for parties, but the whole idea of a party is for people to have fun. I do not see any political party where I could have fun. The strange thing today is, if I do not belong to some political party I am not able to vote in this country. Moreover, if I do vote, who in the world do I vote for? My wife and I got to talking about this and I, for once in my life, posed a question. How would you describe the average American? Is the average American black, white, yellow, red or a mixture of colors? Do you define an American by the color of his or her skin? What about gender? Is the average American male or female? Then there is age. How old is the average American? We bounced these questions around for a long time and did not come up with any good answers. Then there was silence. I come back to one thought; why cant we just be Americans. Why do we have to have all the emphasis on variations, colors, temperaments and the people we elect to office who cannot tie their own shoes without conducting some poll? Why cant we send ordinary, common sense Americans to Washington, D.C., who understands the American life? Most of the politicians, if not all, live in a bubble and cannot relate to the average American in this country. I challenge these politicians to act like, live like common, everyday, normal Americans. We normal Americans have to live on a budget. If I do not have enough money, I have come to the end of my buying spree. I think this concept ought to be copyrighted and sent to Washington, D.C. It is a new concept. It will need somebody to interpret it to those who are living in that venomous circle that we call the capital of the United States. I would recommend a first grader. It would be refreshing to have somebody in Congress or the Senate who had common sense. I guess Will Rogers was right when he said the problem with common sense is it is no longer common. A real American is one who is committed to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A real American is one who embraces the red, white Why cant we all just be Americans? O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE6 on June 27 and 29. Four man teams competed for two days, with the cumulative score for the two days used to determine the winners. The format was the usual three best net. Thankfully Debby had passed through and the course was in good shape for the contest. We had 45 players for the event. The competition was fierce and the scores were close. The winning team with a score of 399 was Bruce Stover, John ONeill, Dick Feltenberger, and Paul Valois. Second with a score of 400 were Bob Salberg, Jim Spran, John DeSalvo, and Duke Slayton. Third with a score of 401 were Charlie Elder, John Wargo, Bill Start, and Wayne Feeman. After the last day of play lunch was served to the players by Royal Oaks and was excellent as usual. Thanks for a job well done. The tournament was chaired by Dick Blackburn, who was assisted in the scoring by Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, and our pro Lori Wilkes. This was the last tournament until fall, so its back to normal golf. Enjoy the course, and dont stay out in the sun too long! ORWGAHere is the list of winners of the June 21 Low Net Tournament.

A real American is the one who can clutch his five-dollar bill and say, in God we trust. If it is good for our money, it is good for our life. If only the American people, the real people of America, would wake up and see what our politicians are doing, perhaps they would do what our early founders did. In celebrating another Fourth of July, my thought is simply, why not just be an American. A real American also embraces what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Is that the sound of a drumbeat I hear off in the distance? Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

SNYDER CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 W hatever your political leanings may be, it is clear that throughout American history, American presidents have made important decisions concerning their actions and appointments of Jews to the American government. Having just celebrated our independence on July 4, it seems only fitting to explore some of these presidential decisions and how they affected the lives of American Jews. George Washington was the first president to write letters to several synagogues including the Touro Synagogue of Rhode Island and Mikveh Israel of Savannah. These letters assured the Jews living in the new country that the United States did not tolerate bigotry and that religious freedom was an American right. Thomas Jefferson was the first president to appoint a Jew to a federal post. In 1801, Reuben Etting of Baltimore was named a U. S. marshal for Maryland. Mordecai M. Noah was appointed by James Madison to a diplomatic post, the first Jew to be so honored. He served as ambassador to Tunis from 1813-16. Martin Van Buren was the first president to intercede on behalf of Jewish Americans abroad. In 1840, he instructed the U.S. consul in Egypt to protect the Jews of Damascus who had been under attack for a false anti-Semitic blood libel. Only in America does a Quaker who converts to Judaism become a U.S. consul to Palestine. This is what John Tyler did in 1844 when he appointed Warder Cresson. Washington Hebrew Congregation, the first synagogue in the District, has Franklin Pierces name on its charter, because he signed an Act of Congress 1857 that amended the law so that the synagogue could become incorporated. Abraham Lincoln was the first president to appoint Jewish chaplains to the military. He also rescinded the only anti-Semitic government decree when General Grant issued his infamous Order No. 11 expelling Jews from Union territory in Tennessee. Grant claimed his subordinate issued the decree. During his administration, he was the first president to attend a synagogue service while in office. He and his whole cabinet attended the dedication of Adas Israel in Washington, D.C. in 1874. Rutherford B. Hayes is noted for two important firsts. He appointed Benjamin Peixotto ConsulGeneral to Romania to help fight anti-Semitism. He also upheld a Jewish womans right to observe Shabbat by ensuring her employment with the Department of the Interior after she was denied the position for refusing to work on Saturday. Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to appoint a Jew to his cabinet. The appointment was for Oscar Strauss who was named Secretary of Commerce and Labor. Teddy also was the first president to contribute to a Jewish cause with his own private funds. From the monies he received as a Nobel Peace recipient in 1919 for settling the Russo-Japanese War, Roosevelt contributed to the National Jewish Welfare Board. In 1912, William Howard Taft became the first president to attend a seder. This was at the home of Jewish Welfare Board president, Colonel Henry Cutler. Looks like both presidents ate matza! Woodrow Wilson was the first president to appoint a Jew to the Supreme Court. Despite pressure to withdraw the nomination, Wilson went ahead and appointed Louis Brandeis (namesake for the university). Other presidents followed by also naming Jews in the ensuing years. Wilson also was the first to publically endorse a national Jewish philanthropic campaign. The United Jewish Relief Campaign, which was raising funds for the European War effort, received Wilsons support in a letter to Jacob Schiff in 1917. Early support for the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine came from Warren Harding when he signed a Joint Congressional Resolution in support of the Balfour Declaration, the document issued by Great Britain, which stated favor for an establishment of a Jewish national homeland. This occurred in 1922. Calvin Coolidge, silent Cal, was the first president to help dedicate a Jewish community center and not a house of worship. In 1925, he dedicated the Washington, D.C. Jewish community center. FDRs administration still falls into the controversy category even today. There is proof that this president knew of the Nazis diabolical plans to annihilate the Jews of Europe and could have taken steps to bomb the tracks leading to the concentration camps. He also could have increased the refugee quota, which might have saved more lives. He did, however, lead the Allies against the Nazis and is remembered for the military campaigns, which ultimately ended World War II. In spite of this all, there are many who see Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a force against tyranny. He was the first president to be given a Torah as a gift, one that had been rescued from a burning Czech synagogue, another, a miniature one from Young Israel. Harry Truman, the president who quipped at a KKK meeting that the people there were so stupid that they bought their sheets from a Jewish merchant, was the first head of state to publically announce recognition of the new State of Israel just 11 minutes after independence was declared. He also was the first to receive an Israeli president, Chaim Weizman and ambassador, Eliahu Elat, in 1948. Truman was also instrumental in securing millions in loans and grants to help the fledgling state with mass immigration during 1951-52. As the United States moved further into the 1950s, the involvement of Jews in the government increased and their presence was more apparent. These years bringing us up to the present are subject for my next column. Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.

Friday, July 6, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com V oter purge is an expression which creates a deserved negative impression about legal efforts to identify unqualified voters and remove them from the rolls. Early in his term as Florida governor, Rick Scott stated an intention to identify and remove unqualified voters from the states voting rolls. At the time, at least one prominent newspaper suggested the governors intentions seemed justifiable and defensible. As the presidential election drew closer, however, press opinions turned negative. Are voter qualification reviews in Florida and several other states tinged with political motives? Wed be surprised if they werent. But that isnt the issue. Everyone who pays attention to important news knows that at least seven of the 9/ll hijackers who declared war on the U.S. were illegally registered voters. The non-citizen hijackers found it just as easy to become registered voters as it was to obtain visas, social security cards, and drivers licenses. Those most opposed to voter verification efforts dismiss cases of impersonation, fictitious www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 6, 2012 I n case it sneaked up on you, Sunday was July 1, which means in Florida that most of those new laws the Legislature passed took effect. Ive tracked down a few of them, so here goes. The one that most people will notice, and applaud, is the approval of the sales tax holiday for back-to-school items. The holiday is Aug. 3 to Aug. 5, and includes various clothing and school supplies, but not books, that cost less than $75. Its part of an economic development package that includes money for incentives and a corporate tax break. Its designed to help lure businesses to the state. The state has also taken action to try to cut back on auto insurance fraud. Accident reports now have to include information on the driver and all passengers. Also, as of Jan. 1, personal injury protection payments are limited for non-emergency treatment, and if youre a fan of massage therapy or acupuncture, forget it. That will no longer be covered. Insurance rates are supposed to go down, but insurance companies can defend the failure to do so with the state, so dont start spending your savings just yet. Prayers at school events? School boards may now set guidelines for students to give inspirational messages at school events. This is, of course, a law begging for a lawsuit, so any school board that does so is risking a court trip. Still, there are renegade school boards out there, not speaking of anyone specific you understand, so who knows? Other items to keep an eye on: School funding around the state is supposed to increase, but well hold our breath on that one. Its now illegal to tape anyone in a residential dwelling with his or her knowledge. This comes from the Erin Andrews hotel peephole case. Frankly, I thought that already was illegal. One interesting aspect of the law is that its a felony if youre 19, but a misdemeanor if youre 18 or younger. Isnt a crime a crime? Strange! And if youre buying a timeshare, there are new rules to protect you. One new law that didnt quite make it would have banned the government from doing business with companies who have links, even through parent companies, with Cuba. A federal judge in Miami blocked that law from taking effect last week. Im sure there are more, less significant, laws that are going on the books. In most cases, though, if you use common sense, youll be fine. Then again, it was our Legislature that passed these things, so Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

S o the health care act has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and that unleashed fear and anger among many Americans who feel we are moving further and further into socialism. Ironically, the decision came just a few days before the Fourth of July, when we celebrate the freedom of Americans. Many are saying they hope we will still have a free America a few years from now as the July 4 holiday rolls around for our children and grandchildren. One of the scariest analyses came from Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, as well as a long-time practitioner of general internal medicine, who says the reform is likely to do greater harm than good for doctors and patients. One thing that may happen, first of all, is that your doctor might not even be there any more because a high percentage of physicians have said they cannot afford to or simply will not practice under these new regulations, Orient explained. She also said that the groups most at risk of suffering a decline in care are senior citizens, people who tend to be sicker, even young children because the emphasis is on people in their most productive years of life. According to published reports, among the potential negative impacts on treatment, Orient listed longer wait times to see the doctor, limited access to specialists, group visits because doctors dont have time to see patients one-on-one, and diminished freedom of choice for patients. A lot of people think oh goody, all these things are free, but it still comes with a price, Orient said. You will get whatever the system thinks you should have. Orient said the changes would likely be devastating to close doctor-patient relationships. Thats the very worst feature, the destruction of the doctor-patient relationship, she said. It doesnt support compassion or dedication to doing your very best; instead its about checking off boxes. The first big test will come in November. Will enough Americans be upset with this ruling to vote for a Republican president, Senate and House? Or will we be divided still after the ballots are cast? When you go to the polls, remember that one key phrase from above: All things come with a price. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The looming woes of health care act Sales tax holiday among new laws Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Registration of voters is a public trust Hes got to goMy first reaction to the court decision on Obama Care was one of disgust; however it may be the very thing that was needed to get rid of that horrendous plan. Hopefully, the majority of Americans should now be interested enough to examine the details, and unlike Congress, read the bill. Most polls show that roughly 80 percent of us have no idea how many changes will occur that will dramatically increase health costs to every hard working, tax paying citizen. For example, how many are excited about having to pay 3.8 percent tax on the sale of your home beginning in 2013? There is no way the intelligent will want this plan. This has never been about health care, it is about big government takeover, the biggest power grab in our history! This can and will destroy America as we know it unless Romney is elected and he, with a Republican Congress, repeals it. Everyone agrees that we need to make needed changes in our health coverage, but changes can be made that do not lay the burden on taxpayers and those who willingly pay their own way. Those who never pay their own way will obviously love this plan because they love having the other guy pay for them. One woman on TV stated it much better than I can, she said This will allow me to have health insurance without cost to me. She has no idea of the meaning of personal responsibility.

Their mantra is Catch some more bad guys, and then well take you seriously. They dont offer alternatives for catching the frauds One of the most thorough critics has been the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Their perspective is that the problem of unqualified voters is greatly exaggerated, tinged with racial motives, and discouraging to eligible voters. Like other critics, they suggest the states find the unqualified voters first, then make a case for searching the polls. Thats called specious reasoning a fancy word for double-talk. When a federal court rejected a Department of Justice request to block Floridas examination of DOJ citizen lists, DOJ said Florida is working with a list which has critical imperfections which may harm or confuse voters. DOJ had been stonewalling Floridas requests to access a federal data base against which to check the names on the states list. Political motives by DOJ? The judge told the feds if they wanted honest elections, they should cooperate with the state. The most interesting aspect of the federal-state conflict is that federal law requires states to remove the names of ineligible voters from official lists, an upshot of the 2000 election recount fiasco in Florida. The Justice Department says they think thats a good idea, if the states can show widespread abuse first. More double-talk. The political nonsense between DOJ and the states may have a good effect nonetheless. Publicity focused on voter registrations might just discourage those who would commit a crime by voting illegally, whether they are few or many. As for suggestions that a purge intimidates qualified voters, we think not. Citizens who make the effort to become qualified voters, and gladly suffer any inconveniences, will turn out to vote come hell or high water. Its called exercising a primary right of citizenship. among us, but past experience shows that many of them dont have it because they arent willing to pay for it! Who wouldnt rather buy that new car, flat screen TV, or other luxury item with that money? This is true now and was 40 years ago, I personally heard that story many times. One obvious fact: If Obama is re-elected, we will have Obama Care, so examine it carefully before voting. Obama also wants illegals to have an easy path (30 years old, been here five years) to citizenPLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 JiggleMan (Banks Helfrich) from Orlando came to the Freeedom Public Library June 27 to entertain youngsters and anyone else wanting a good afternoon laugh. JiggleMan jiggled his way through a delightful performance that really got the full library audience rolling in laughter. He jiggled for what seemed forever as he did his ball tricks, passed out balloons, and did tricks with a wannabe hair dryer. JiggleMan said he has lots of friends on Facebook so people can leave comments for him about his wonderful smile making tricks. His parting comments were to ask the audience to check out books before they left, which made the library staff happy. JiggleMan pays a visit to Freedom Public Library PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELThe library was filled to capacity by children of all ages including several from the Capstone Childcare Academy, who came an hour early to get front row seats on the floor. JiggleMan is putting large rings on his head as part of his tricks. The rings also were changed into squares as part of the trick.

T he Dog Days are upon us the hottest, most sultry days of summer. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius the Dog Star, now close to the sun, was responsible for the hot weather. So, we have some doggy treats for you. Two new dogsA girl was visiting her friend who had acquired two new dogs and asked the dogs names. The friend said that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. The girl said, Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that? Hellooooo, she answered, Theyre watch dogs! Beware of the dogThe little country store had a sign warning, Danger! Beware of dog! Inside, there was a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of? one customer asked the owner. Yep, thats him. That certainly doesnt look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign? Before I posted the sign, people kept tripping over him. Shaggy Dog StoryA man walked into a bar with a collie and both proceeded to get blitzed. The dog drank so much it passed out on the floor. When the man went to leave the bartender yelled, Hey! You cant leave that lyin there! The drunk replied, Thats not a lion. Its a collie. Dog bites My neighbors dog bit me in the leg today. Did you put anything on it? No, he liked it just as it was. The dog went to the corner when the doorbell rang because he was a Boxer. A police dog is often the scenter of a drug arrest. During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking. One said to the other, The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn all this stuff you will never use in the real world. The dog is an Arctic explorer. He goes from pole to pole. You can tell its raining cats and dogs when there are poodles in the street. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. They call their dog handyman because he does odd jobs around the house. A dog is mans best friend because he wags his tail instead of his tongue. One dog asked another, Whats your name? The other answered, Im not sure, but I think its Down Boy. Airdale?A pair of city slickers bought a pedigreed bird dog from a farmer. They took the dog out on a snipe hunting expedition, but the dog sat down and slept. One of the city slickers said, So much for hunting. Now lets throw him into the air. If he doesnt fly, well bring him back. Dogone Suffering from a dog bite a man was taken to the hospital. Some hours later, someone from the pound came to see him and gave him the bad news that the dog was mad. The victim said, How do you like that? He bit me and hes mad? What a tale! In a small country pub everyone liked the owners little dog being around and were quite upset when the dog died. They decided to cut off his tail and stick it up behind the bar to commemorate the dogs friendly behavior. The little dog went up to heaven and was stopped by Saint Peter, who said, Heaven is a place of perfection, you cant come into heaven without a tail. Where is your tail? The little dog explained what had happened back on earth. St. Peter told the little dog to go back down to earth and retrieve his tail. The little dog protested that it was now the middle of the night, but Saint Peter would not reconsider. So the little dog went back down to earth and scratched on the door of the pub until the bartender who lived upstairs came down and opened the door. The bartender said, My goodness, it is the spirit of the little dog. What can I do for you? The little dog explained that he wasnt allowed into heaven without his tail, and he needed it back. The bartender replied, I would really like to help you, but my liquor license doesnt allow me to retail spirits after hours. ship. They cant even provide a legal ID, how can he expect them to be able to prove their age and exactly how long they have been here? He wants illegals here because he knows they will vote for democrats. What party fights to let them vote and doesnt want us to purge the voter rolls? The only reasonable objection would have to be your wanting to cheat. Lets have no more acorn stories like the young woman who admitted voting 18 times. Which America do you want? This next election is the most important in my lifetime, and yours. Wayne Rackley Ocala Not paying taxes?I am really tired of some people complaining about others not paying taxes. So lets set the record straight. There are some who dont pay any Income Tax. Why? Because they dont have the minimum required to pay the tax. No or low income no Income Tax due. What about Social Security and Medicare taxes? We all pay or have paid into that. Do they own a home or pay rent? Yes? Then they pay property tax either directly or through their landlord. Do they buy gas? If so, they pay taxes. Do they buy clothes or other items? They pay taxes. Do they have a phone? They pay taxes. I think you get my drift. We all pay taxes of one kind or another so lets stop talking about the Socialists Freeloaders. Were all in the same boat. If it sinks we all drown. One more tax item. The recent Supreme Court ruling says that the penalty for not getting health insurance is a tax. Some are saying it is a big tax increase on the middle class. It is my understanding that according to the new law, officially called the Affordable Care Act, will require that you indicate on your tax form whether you do or do not have medical insurance. If you dont and you are due a refund then your refund will be reduced by the amount of the penalty. If you are not due a refund you are not assessed the penalty. So if you dont want to get medical insurance and dont want to pay the penalty, make sure you are not due a refund. Lets quit squabbling and work together to provide some form of affordable health care to those who need it. James Merrick Ocala Oak Run walkersThis is another opinion on the issue of walkers on the boulevard in Oak Run. I couldnt help putting my two cents in, which is a good approximation of the value of mine and all the others to date. Looks like its shaping up to be a war between the walkers and the anti-walkers. Let me confirm right off that Im a walker, but I can understand the complaints of the anti-walkers. As the writer in todays edition stated, there are nice folks in Oak Run, and there are others. So far, Ive only encountered the nice folks, and that includes the lady who owns the dog that took a bite out of my hand that required 10 stitches to sew up. Oak Run is a closed gate community, a beautiful place to live, and a great place to walk. But if you have long legs, you dont want to be restricted to going round and round in the small section you live in, especially when there are miles of streets available. Unfortunately, to get to those streets, it becomes necessary at times to walk on the boulevard. Now, the best solution for that would be to build sidewalks, but its a lot cheaper to just put up signs restricting pedestrian traffic. So thats what the owners did, so they dont have to pay your insurance claim. There is a common sense approach to this problem, and here I understand the antiwalkers complaint. Ive questioned the intelligence of walkers myself when I see people walking along the boulevard, even when on the proper side, facing traffic, who insist they are entitled to a share of the road. They are not. The new signs tell them so. I think they are ill-advised to contest an automobile for a portion of the pavement. In any contest with an automobile, the walker is going to come in second. For crying out loud, if they would just get off the road when a car comes and walk a few steps on the grass on the shoulder, no one would have a legitimate complaint. Im just saying. .

As Lewis Carroll wrote in Through the Looking Glass, When I use a word, Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, it means just what I choose it to mean neither more nor less. Chief Justice John Robertss opinion holds that the penalty for not complying with the mandate is both a tax and not a tax depending on the question. If the question is whether someone may sue to strike down the mandate, the court says yes, because the penalty is not a tax. Under the Tax Anti-Injunction Act (first passed in 1867 but since updated), one may not ask for an injunction against a tax before it has been enforced. One must wait to be taxed, request a refund from the IRS, and if turned down, then sue the government. In the Obamacare case, the Court denied such an attempt to have the challenge dismissed by declaring the penalty not a tax. But only for purposes of the Tax Anti-Injunction Act. It was another story when the question was whether the mandate is constitutional. The government made two arguments in defense of its mandate. The primary argument was that Congress may require the purchase of insurance under the Commerce Clause. This clause, which empowers Congress To regulate commerce among the several States, has long been interpreted to include even activities that merely affect interstate commerce. Roberts and four other members of the court (Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito) did not buy this argument. The Framers gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it, Roberts wrote. He rebutted in great detail the Obama administrations many arguments that penalizing people for not buying insurance was a way to regulate interstate commerce. Fine. It does seem a stretch to claim that forcing people to engage in commerce (buying insurGUEST COMMENTARY PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE10 Some canine treats for the dog days of summer P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank mals and a willingness to help a lost homeless pet.

J uly 4 has come and gone and Oak Runners had a blast of a day. The residents of Oak Run watched their parade on the boulevard starting at 8 a.m. The parade included people representing six neighborhoods, eight clubs, and members of ORHA. In addition there were representatives from the Marion County Fife & Drum Corps, two sheriffs vehicles, and two fire trucks. We also had six antique/luxury cars, 10 motorcycles, one scooter, 43 golf carts and two trailers. There were two famous gentlemen representing our countrys heritage, Abe Lincoln and Uncle Sam. As always there was special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female. There is never a better time to thank all of the veterans for the many sacrifices they and their comrades have made for our country. The cool down followed immediately after the parade at the Orchid Club with approximately 300 residents and guests in attendance. There were refreshments while we listened to the sounds of the Fife & Drum Corps, the presentation of colors (military style), songs, a reading of a poem, a patriotic video and several speakers. That was only the morning. The afternoon session was at Palm Grove beginning at approximately 1:30 p.m. The area around Palm Grove was where you went to eat and play games for prizes There were more than 300 food tickets sold for hot dogs and hamburgers as well as all the condiments plus three different kinds of salads, jumbo sized cookies and soft drinks. In addition to the games (eight games in total) there were prizes for the contestants that could score the highest points. There were 5 clowns available for face painting as well as getting into pictures with the many children that came to participate. A gathering like this could never have been the great success it was if it wasnt for the many volunteers that came and gave their time. There were over 80 Oak Run residents who helped at every step, such as crossing guards for the morning parade, people to manage the games and give out the prizes, people to help with the collection of the food tickets and dispensing of the food. The planning that went into this event was basically hard work by the July 4th committee that was chaired by Damian Romano, assisted by his wife, Audrey. The details for setting up, planning and assignment of the volunteers were handled by Bill Pascoe and his wife, Carol. In addition to the aforementioned the following people deserve a big round of applause for their invaluable assistance: the Feltmans, McHales, Pikes, Routtes, Andrews and Meinsens to name but a few. It was an enjoyable day and a beautiful way to pay homage to the veterans of our great country.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of Anna Boodee interviewing Dick Boden about his music and the beginnings of Way Off Broadway in Oak Run.

As Roberts said, regulating something presupposes the existence of that something. But the mandate seeks to create commercial activity where it does not exist. Interestingly, Robertss four allies on this point were actually in the minority of the overall case. The other four members of the majority (Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg) found the mandate perfectly consistent with the Commerce Clause. So how did Roberts form a majority with those four to uphold the mandate? The government had a backup argument for its claim, and this one found favor with the five. The government argued that should the Commerce Clause argument fail, the court can think of the mandate penalty as wait for it a tax! Its long been established in the law that Congress may regulate action (or inaction) by taxing it even if it may not constitutionally regulate it directly. Voila! What seemed unconstitutional became constitutional. The penalty (the term used in the law) now is a tax, even though earlier in the opinion the Court said the penalty is not a tax. Justice Humpty Dumpty has spoken. Strangely, some opponents of Obamacare are rejoicing over the decision. Randy Barnett, the constitutional law professor at Georgetown University Law Center who is credited with formulating the case against the governments Commerce Clause argument, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post declaring, We Lost on Health Care. But the Constitution Won. Hows that? Barnetts point is that Robertss affirmation of limits to the Commerce Clause struck a historic blow for individual liberty and against government power. Considered in isolation, Robertss refusal to include abstention from buying insurance under the rubric of interstate commerce could be applauded. Unfortunately, Roberts didnt leave the stage after singing that aria.

Learn EuchreCard games are very popular here in the community, and Euchre is one of them. Euchre is an easyto-learn, fast-moving, fun game which utilizes half a Pinochle deck of cards. It is played by two sets of partners who try to win by scoring a fixed number of points in a certain number of tricks. In this game, the Jack is the highest card, and the second Jack of the same color is the second highest. The game is usually played with a 24-card deck, which includes the cards from nine up to Ace of all four suits. Euchre players meet for a weekly game on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Lifestyle Center. We all have a lot of fun and lots of laughs, said Charlie Bondanza.

J uly 4 has come and gone and Oak Runners had a blast of a day. The residents of Oak Run watched their parade on the boulevard starting at 8 a.m. The parade included people representing six neighborhoods, eight clubs, and members of ORHA. In addition there were representatives from the Marion County Fife & Drum Corps, two sheriffs vehicles, and two fire trucks. We also had six antique/luxury cars, 10 motorcycles, one scooter, 43 golf carts and two trailers. There were two famous gentlemen representing our countrys heritage, Abe Lincoln and Uncle Sam. As always there was special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female. There is never a better time to thank all of the veterans for the many sacrifices they and their comrades have made for our country. The cool down followed immediately after the parade at the Orchid Club with approximately 300 residents and guests in attendance. There were refreshments while we listened to the sounds of the Fife & Drum Corps, the presentation of colors (military style), songs, a reading of a poem, a patriotic video and several speakers. That was only the morning. The afternoon session was at Palm Grove beginning at approximately 1:30 p.m. The area around Palm Grove was where you went to eat and play games for prizes There were more than 300 food tickets sold for hot dogs and hamburgers as well as all the condiments plus three different kinds of salads, jumbo sized cookies and soft drinks. In addition to the games (eight games in total) there were prizes for the contestants that could score the highest points. There were 5 clowns available for face painting as well as getting into pictures with the many children that came to participate. A gathering like this could never have been the great success it was if it wasnt for the many volunteers that came and gave their time. There were over 80 Oak Run residents who helped at every step, such as crossing guards for the morning parade, people to manage the games and give out the prizes, people to help with the collection of the food tickets and dispensing of the food. The planning that went into this event was basically hard work by the July 4th committee that was chaired by Damian Romano, assisted by his wife, Audrey. The details for setting up, planning and assignment of the volunteers were handled by Bill Pascoe and his wife, Carol. In addition to the aforementioned the following people deserve a big round of applause for their invaluable assistance: the Feltmans, McHales, Pikes, Routtes, Andrews and Meinsens to name but a few. It was an enjoyable day and a beautiful way to pay homage to the veterans of our great country.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of Anna Boodee interviewing Dick Boden about his music and the beginnings of Way Off Broadway in Oak Run.

As Roberts said, regulating something presupposes the existence of that something. But the mandate seeks to create commercial activity where it does not exist. Interestingly, Robertss four allies on this point were actually in the minority of the overall case. The other four members of the majority (Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg) found the mandate perfectly consistent with the Commerce Clause. So how did Roberts form a majority with those four to uphold the mandate? The government had a backup argument for its claim, and this one found favor with the five. The government argued that should the Commerce Clause argument fail, the court can think of the mandate penalty as wait for it a tax! Its long been established in the law that Congress may regulate action (or inaction) by taxing it even if it may not constitutionally regulate it directly. Voila! What seemed unconstitutional became constitutional. The penalty (the term used in the law) now is a tax, even though earlier in the opinion the Court said the penalty is not a tax. Justice Humpty Dumpty has spoken. Strangely, some opponents of Obamacare are rejoicing over the decision. Randy Barnett, the constitutional law professor at Georgetown University Law Center who is credited with formulating the case against the governments Commerce Clause argument, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post declaring, We Lost on Health Care. But the Constitution Won. Hows that? Barnetts point is that Robertss affirmation of limits to the Commerce Clause struck a historic blow for individual liberty and against government power. Considered in isolation, Robertss refusal to include abstention from buying insurance under the rubric of interstate commerce could be applauded. Unfortunately, Roberts didnt leave the stage after singing that aria. He went on to say that RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 other constitutional grounds exist on which the government can penalize us if we fail to buy insurance. So wheres the victory for liberty? There is none here. The court has long held that the government may use its all-embracing constitutional taxing power to regulate our conduct. To the person being forced, does it really matter which constitutional clause is invoked?

T he Dog Days are upon us the hottest, most sultry days of summer. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius the Dog Star, now close to the sun, was responsible for the hot weather. So, we have some doggy treats for you. Two new dogsA girl was visiting her friend who had acquired two new dogs and asked the dogs names. The friend said that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. The girl said, Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that? Hellooooo, she answered, Theyre watch dogs! Beware of the dogThe little country store had a sign warning, Danger! Beware of dog! Inside, there was a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of? one customer asked the owner. Yep, thats him. That certainly doesnt look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign? Before I posted the sign, people kept tripping over him. Shaggy Dog StoryA man walked into a bar with a collie and both proceeded to get blitzed. The dog drank so much it passed out on the floor. When the man went to leave the bartender yelled, Hey! You cant leave that lyin there! The drunk replied, Thats not a lion. Its a collie. Dog bites My neighbors dog bit me in the leg today. Did you put anything on it? No, he liked it just as it was. The dog went to the corner when the doorbell rang because he was a Boxer. A police dog is often the scenter of a drug arrest. During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking. One said to the other, The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn all this stuff you will never use in the real world. The dog is an Arctic explorer. He goes from pole to pole. You can tell its raining cats and dogs when there are poodles in the street. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. They call their dog handyman because he does odd jobs around the house. A dog is mans best friend because he wags his tail instead of his tongue. One dog asked another, Whats your name? The other answered, Im not sure, but I think its Down Boy. Airdale?A pair of city slickers bought a pedigreed bird dog from a farmer. They took the dog out on a snipe hunting expedition, but the dog sat down and slept. One of the city slickers said, So much for hunting. Now lets throw him into the air. If he doesnt fly, well bring him back. Dogone Suffering from a dog bite a man was taken to the hospital. Some hours later, someone from the pound came to see him and gave him the bad news that the dog was mad. The victim said, How do you like that? He bit me and hes mad? What a tale! In a small country pub everyone liked the owners little dog being around and were quite upset when the dog died. They decided to cut off his tail and stick it up behind the bar to commemorate the dogs friendly behavior. The little dog went up to heaven and was stopped by Saint Peter, who said, Heaven is a place of perfection, you cant come into heaven without a tail. Where is your tail? The little dog explained what had happened back on earth. St. Peter told the little dog to go back down to earth and retrieve his tail. The little dog protested that it was now the middle of the night, but Saint Peter would not reconsider. So the little dog went back down to earth and scratched on the door of the pub until the bartender who lived upstairs came down and opened the door. The bartender said, My goodness, it is the spirit of the little dog. What can I do for you? The little dog explained that he wasnt allowed into heaven without his tail, and he needed it back. The bartender replied, I would really like to help you, but my liquor license doesnt allow me to retail spirits after hours. ship. They cant even provide a legal ID, how can he expect them to be able to prove their age and exactly how long they have been here? He wants illegals here because he knows they will vote for democrats. What party fights to let them vote and doesnt want us to purge the voter rolls? The only reasonable objection would have to be your wanting to cheat. Lets have no more acorn stories like the young woman who admitted voting 18 times. Which America do you want? This next election is the most important in my lifetime, and yours. Wayne Rackley Ocala Not paying taxes?I am really tired of some people complaining about others not paying taxes. So lets set the record straight. There are some who dont pay any Income Tax. Why? Because they dont have the minimum required to pay the tax. No or low income no Income Tax due. What about Social Security and Medicare taxes? We all pay or have paid into that. Do they own a home or pay rent? Yes? Then they pay property tax either directly or through their landlord. Do they buy gas? If so, they pay taxes. Do they buy clothes or other items? They pay taxes. Do they have a phone? They pay taxes. I think you get my drift. We all pay taxes of one kind or another so lets stop talking about the Socialists Freeloaders. Were all in the same boat. If it sinks we all drown. One more tax item. The recent Supreme Court ruling says that the penalty for not getting health insurance is a tax. Some are saying it is a big tax increase on the middle class. It is my understanding that according to the new law, officially called the Affordable Care Act, will require that you indicate on your tax form whether you do or do not have medical insurance. If you dont and you are due a refund then your refund will be reduced by the amount of the penalty. If you are not due a refund you are not assessed the penalty. So if you dont want to get medical insurance and dont want to pay the penalty, make sure you are not due a refund. Lets quit squabbling and work together to provide some form of affordable health care to those who need it. James Merrick Ocala Oak Run walkersThis is another opinion on the issue of walkers on the boulevard in Oak Run. I couldnt help putting my two cents in, which is a good approximation of the value of mine and all the others to date. Looks like its shaping up to be a war between the walkers and the anti-walkers. Let me confirm right off that Im a walker, but I can understand the complaints of the anti-walkers. As the writer in todays edition stated, there are nice folks in Oak Run, and there are others. So far, Ive only encountered the nice folks, and that includes the lady who owns the dog that took a bite out of my hand that required 10 stitches to sew up. Oak Run is a closed gate community, a beautiful place to live, and a great place to walk. But if you have long legs, you dont want to be restricted to going round and round in the small section you live in, especially when there are miles of streets available. Unfortunately, to get to those streets, it becomes necessary at times to walk on the boulevard. Now, the best solution for that would be to build sidewalks, but its a lot cheaper to just put up signs restricting pedestrian traffic. So thats what the owners did, so they dont have to pay your insurance claim. There is a common sense approach to this problem, and here I understand the antiwalkers complaint. Ive questioned the intelligence of walkers myself when I see people walking along the boulevard, even when on the proper side, facing traffic, who insist they are entitled to a share of the road. They are not. The new signs tell them so. I think they are ill-advised to contest an automobile for a portion of the pavement. In any contest with an automobile, the walker is going to come in second. For crying out loud, if they would just get off the road when a car comes and walk a few steps on the grass on the shoulder, no one would have a legitimate complaint. Im just saying. .

As Lewis Carroll wrote in Through the Looking Glass, When I use a word, Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, it means just what I choose it to mean neither more nor less. Chief Justice John Robertss opinion holds that the penalty for not complying with the mandate is both a tax and not a tax depending on the question. If the question is whether someone may sue to strike down the mandate, the court says yes, because the penalty is not a tax. Under the Tax Anti-Injunction Act (first passed in 1867 but since updated), one may not ask for an injunction against a tax before it has been enforced. One must wait to be taxed, request a refund from the IRS, and if turned down, then sue the government. In the Obamacare case, the Court denied such an attempt to have the challenge dismissed by declaring the penalty not a tax. But only for purposes of the Tax Anti-Injunction Act. It was another story when the question was whether the mandate is constitutional. The government made two arguments in defense of its mandate. The primary argument was that Congress may require the purchase of insurance under the Commerce Clause. This clause, which empowers Congress To regulate commerce among the several States, has long been interpreted to include even activities that merely affect interstate commerce. Roberts and four other members of the court (Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito) did not buy this argument. The Framers gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it, Roberts wrote. He rebutted in great detail the Obama administrations many arguments that penalizing people for not buying insurance was a way to regulate interstate commerce. Fine. It does seem a stretch to claim that forcing people to engage in commerce (buying insurGUEST COMMENTARY PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE10 Some canine treats for the dog days of summer P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank mals and a willingness to help a lost homeless pet.

Friday, July 6, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com V oter purge is an expression which creates a deserved negative impression about legal efforts to identify unqualified voters and remove them from the rolls. Early in his term as Florida governor, Rick Scott stated an intention to identify and remove unqualified voters from the states voting rolls. At the time, at least one prominent newspaper suggested the governors intentions seemed justifiable and defensible. As the presidential election drew closer, however, press opinions turned negative. Are voter qualification reviews in Florida and several other states tinged with political motives? Wed be surprised if they werent. But that isnt the issue. Everyone who pays attention to important news knows that at least seven of the 9/ll hijackers who declared war on the U.S. were illegally registered voters. The non-citizen hijackers found it just as easy to become registered voters as it was to obtain visas, social security cards, and drivers licenses. Those most opposed to voter verification efforts dismiss cases of impersonation, fictitious www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 6, 2012 I n case it sneaked up on you, Sunday was July 1, which means in Florida that most of those new laws the Legislature passed took effect. Ive tracked down a few of them, so here goes. The one that most people will notice, and applaud, is the approval of the sales tax holiday for back-to-school items. The holiday is Aug. 3 to Aug. 5, and includes various clothing and school supplies, but not books, that cost less than $75. Its part of an economic development package that includes money for incentives and a corporate tax break. Its designed to help lure businesses to the state. The state has also taken action to try to cut back on auto insurance fraud. Accident reports now have to include information on the driver and all passengers. Also, as of Jan. 1, personal injury protection payments are limited for non-emergency treatment, and if youre a fan of massage therapy or acupuncture, forget it. That will no longer be covered. Insurance rates are supposed to go down, but insurance companies can defend the failure to do so with the state, so dont start spending your savings just yet. Prayers at school events? School boards may now set guidelines for students to give inspirational messages at school events. This is, of course, a law begging for a lawsuit, so any school board that does so is risking a court trip. Still, there are renegade school boards out there, not speaking of anyone specific you understand, so who knows? Other items to keep an eye on: School funding around the state is supposed to increase, but well hold our breath on that one. Its now illegal to tape anyone in a residential dwelling with his or her knowledge. This comes from the Erin Andrews hotel peephole case. Frankly, I thought that already was illegal. One interesting aspect of the law is that its a felony if youre 19, but a misdemeanor if youre 18 or younger. Isnt a crime a crime? Strange! And if youre buying a timeshare, there are new rules to protect you. One new law that didnt quite make it would have banned the government from doing business with companies who have links, even through parent companies, with Cuba. A federal judge in Miami blocked that law from taking effect last week. Im sure there are more, less significant, laws that are going on the books. In most cases, though, if you use common sense, youll be fine. Then again, it was our Legislature that passed these things, so Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

S o the health care act has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and that unleashed fear and anger among many Americans who feel we are moving further and further into socialism. Ironically, the decision came just a few days before the Fourth of July, when we celebrate the freedom of Americans. Many are saying they hope we will still have a free America a few years from now as the July 4 holiday rolls around for our children and grandchildren. One of the scariest analyses came from Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, as well as a long-time practitioner of general internal medicine, who says the reform is likely to do greater harm than good for doctors and patients. One thing that may happen, first of all, is that your doctor might not even be there any more because a high percentage of physicians have said they cannot afford to or simply will not practice under these new regulations, Orient explained. She also said that the groups most at risk of suffering a decline in care are senior citizens, people who tend to be sicker, even young children because the emphasis is on people in their most productive years of life. According to published reports, among the potential negative impacts on treatment, Orient listed longer wait times to see the doctor, limited access to specialists, group visits because doctors dont have time to see patients one-on-one, and diminished freedom of choice for patients. A lot of people think oh goody, all these things are free, but it still comes with a price, Orient said. You will get whatever the system thinks you should have. Orient said the changes would likely be devastating to close doctor-patient relationships. Thats the very worst feature, the destruction of the doctor-patient relationship, she said. It doesnt support compassion or dedication to doing your very best; instead its about checking off boxes. The first big test will come in November. Will enough Americans be upset with this ruling to vote for a Republican president, Senate and House? Or will we be divided still after the ballots are cast? When you go to the polls, remember that one key phrase from above: All things come with a price. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The looming woes of health care act Sales tax holiday among new laws Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Registration of voters is a public trust Hes got to goMy first reaction to the court decision on Obama Care was one of disgust; however it may be the very thing that was needed to get rid of that horrendous plan. Hopefully, the majority of Americans should now be interested enough to examine the details, and unlike Congress, read the bill. Most polls show that roughly 80 percent of us have no idea how many changes will occur that will dramatically increase health costs to every hard working, tax paying citizen. For example, how many are excited about having to pay 3.8 percent tax on the sale of your home beginning in 2013? There is no way the intelligent will want this plan. This has never been about health care, it is about big government takeover, the biggest power grab in our history! This can and will destroy America as we know it unless Romney is elected and he, with a Republican Congress, repeals it. Everyone agrees that we need to make needed changes in our health coverage, but changes can be made that do not lay the burden on taxpayers and those who willingly pay their own way. Those who never pay their own way will obviously love this plan because they love having the other guy pay for them. One woman on TV stated it much better than I can, she said This will allow me to have health insurance without cost to me. She has no idea of the meaning of personal responsibility.

Their mantra is Catch some more bad guys, and then well take you seriously. They dont offer alternatives for catching the frauds One of the most thorough critics has been the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Their perspective is that the problem of unqualified voters is greatly exaggerated, tinged with racial motives, and discouraging to eligible voters. Like other critics, they suggest the states find the unqualified voters first, then make a case for searching the polls. Thats called specious reasoning a fancy word for double-talk. When a federal court rejected a Department of Justice request to block Floridas examination of DOJ citizen lists, DOJ said Florida is working with a list which has critical imperfections which may harm or confuse voters. DOJ had been stonewalling Floridas requests to access a federal data base against which to check the names on the states list. Political motives by DOJ? The judge told the feds if they wanted honest elections, they should cooperate with the state. The most interesting aspect of the federal-state conflict is that federal law requires states to remove the names of ineligible voters from official lists, an upshot of the 2000 election recount fiasco in Florida. The Justice Department says they think thats a good idea, if the states can show widespread abuse first. More double-talk. The political nonsense between DOJ and the states may have a good effect nonetheless. Publicity focused on voter registrations might just discourage those who would commit a crime by voting illegally, whether they are few or many. As for suggestions that a purge intimidates qualified voters, we think not. Citizens who make the effort to become qualified voters, and gladly suffer any inconveniences, will turn out to vote come hell or high water. Its called exercising a primary right of citizenship. among us, but past experience shows that many of them dont have it because they arent willing to pay for it! Who wouldnt rather buy that new car, flat screen TV, or other luxury item with that money? This is true now and was 40 years ago, I personally heard that story many times. One obvious fact: If Obama is re-elected, we will have Obama Care, so examine it carefully before voting. Obama also wants illegals to have an easy path (30 years old, been here five years) to citizenPLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 JiggleMan (Banks Helfrich) from Orlando came to the Freeedom Public Library June 27 to entertain youngsters and anyone else wanting a good afternoon laugh. JiggleMan jiggled his way through a delightful performance that really got the full library audience rolling in laughter. He jiggled for what seemed forever as he did his ball tricks, passed out balloons, and did tricks with a wannabe hair dryer. JiggleMan said he has lots of friends on Facebook so people can leave comments for him about his wonderful smile making tricks. His parting comments were to ask the audience to check out books before they left, which made the library staff happy. JiggleMan pays a visit to Freedom Public Library PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELThe library was filled to capacity by children of all ages including several from the Capstone Childcare Academy, who came an hour early to get front row seats on the floor. JiggleMan is putting large rings on his head as part of his tricks. The rings also were changed into squares as part of the trick. Library employees Heather Ogilvie, Branch Supervisor, and Wolly Barrett, Librarian II are telling the audience about JiggleMan just before he started his tricks.

A real American is the one who can clutch his five-dollar bill and say, in God we trust. If it is good for our money, it is good for our life. If only the American people, the real people of America, would wake up and see what our politicians are doing, perhaps they would do what our early founders did. In celebrating another Fourth of July, my thought is simply, why not just be an American. A real American also embraces what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Is that the sound of a drumbeat I hear off in the distance? Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

SNYDER CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 W hatever your political leanings may be, it is clear that throughout American history, American presidents have made important decisions concerning their actions and appointments of Jews to the American government. Having just celebrated our independence on July 4, it seems only fitting to explore some of these presidential decisions and how they affected the lives of American Jews. George Washington was the first president to write letters to several synagogues including the Touro Synagogue of Rhode Island and Mikveh Israel of Savannah. These letters assured the Jews living in the new country that the United States did not tolerate bigotry and that religious freedom was an American right. Thomas Jefferson was the first president to appoint a Jew to a federal post. In 1801, Reuben Etting of Baltimore was named a U. S. marshal for Maryland. Mordecai M. Noah was appointed by James Madison to a diplomatic post, the first Jew to be so honored. He served as ambassador to Tunis from 1813-16. Martin Van Buren was the first president to intercede on behalf of Jewish Americans abroad. In 1840, he instructed the U.S. consul in Egypt to protect the Jews of Damascus who had been under attack for a false anti-Semitic blood libel. Only in America does a Quaker who converts to Judaism become a U.S. consul to Palestine. This is what John Tyler did in 1844 when he appointed Warder Cresson. Washington Hebrew Congregation, the first synagogue in the District, has Franklin Pierces name on its charter, because he signed an Act of Congress 1857 that amended the law so that the synagogue could become incorporated. Abraham Lincoln was the first president to appoint Jewish chaplains to the military. He also rescinded the only anti-Semitic government decree when General Grant issued his infamous Order No. 11 expelling Jews from Union territory in Tennessee. Grant claimed his subordinate issued the decree. During his administration, he was the first president to attend a synagogue service while in office. He and his whole cabinet attended the dedication of Adas Israel in Washington, D.C. in 1874. Rutherford B. Hayes is noted for two important firsts. He appointed Benjamin Peixotto ConsulGeneral to Romania to help fight anti-Semitism. He also upheld a Jewish womans right to observe Shabbat by ensuring her employment with the Department of the Interior after she was denied the position for refusing to work on Saturday. Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to appoint a Jew to his cabinet. The appointment was for Oscar Strauss who was named Secretary of Commerce and Labor. Teddy also was the first president to contribute to a Jewish cause with his own private funds. From the monies he received as a Nobel Peace recipient in 1919 for settling the Russo-Japanese War, Roosevelt contributed to the National Jewish Welfare Board. In 1912, William Howard Taft became the first president to attend a seder. This was at the home of Jewish Welfare Board president, Colonel Henry Cutler. Looks like both presidents ate matza! Woodrow Wilson was the first president to appoint a Jew to the Supreme Court. Despite pressure to withdraw the nomination, Wilson went ahead and appointed Louis Brandeis (namesake for the university). Other presidents followed by also naming Jews in the ensuing years. Wilson also was the first to publically endorse a national Jewish philanthropic campaign. The United Jewish Relief Campaign, which was raising funds for the European War effort, received Wilsons support in a letter to Jacob Schiff in 1917. Early support for the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine came from Warren Harding when he signed a Joint Congressional Resolution in support of the Balfour Declaration, the document issued by Great Britain, which stated favor for an establishment of a Jewish national homeland. This occurred in 1922. Calvin Coolidge, silent Cal, was the first president to help dedicate a Jewish community center and not a house of worship. In 1925, he dedicated the Washington, D.C. Jewish community center. FDRs administration still falls into the controversy category even today. There is proof that this president knew of the Nazis diabolical plans to annihilate the Jews of Europe and could have taken steps to bomb the tracks leading to the concentration camps. He also could have increased the refugee quota, which might have saved more lives. He did, however, lead the Allies against the Nazis and is remembered for the military campaigns, which ultimately ended World War II. In spite of this all, there are many who see Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a force against tyranny. He was the first president to be given a Torah as a gift, one that had been rescued from a burning Czech synagogue, another, a miniature one from Young Israel. Harry Truman, the president who quipped at a KKK meeting that the people there were so stupid that they bought their sheets from a Jewish merchant, was the first head of state to publically announce recognition of the new State of Israel just 11 minutes after independence was declared. He also was the first to receive an Israeli president, Chaim Weizman and ambassador, Eliahu Elat, in 1948. Truman was also instrumental in securing millions in loans and grants to help the fledgling state with mass immigration during 1951-52. As the United States moved further into the 1950s, the involvement of Jews in the government increased and their presence was more apparent. These years bringing us up to the present are subject for my next column. Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.

What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of TV. I was half dozing, as is usually my condition after such a supper, when my wife startled me with a question. It was a news program on television updating us with the latest political scratch-talk. If it were not for politics, the airwaves would be silent. Oh, for those wonderful sounds of silence. Personally, I would be glad to double my tax rate if in doing so we could put to silence all this political-scratch-talk. I call it scratch-talk because whoever is talking is trying to scratch somebodys back even if it is just their own. I guess we have a lot of itchy backs in this country. Thankfully, we have an endless supply of backscratching politicians. It does not matter which way the wind is blowing; each political party says it is blowing in their direction. I guess you have to go eight years to Harvard and have a student loan debt of $120,000 to understand how that works. If you do not mind, I just do not want to know how it works. With the politicians unable to create work in our country for common Americans, the real Americans, they sure know how to work a situation, usually to their advantage. If they could put all of this to work for the good of the ordinary American, I would feel happier about paying my taxes. As it is, I pay my taxes but not happily. Back to my wifes question. Who are, she said very carefully, the real Americans in this country? Then she paused for a moment and followed it with this question, Who does America really belong to? Well, those two questions got me thinking. Who are the real Americans? Are they Republicans, Democrats or Independents? I know there is a bunch of other miscellaneous political parties but I cannot think of them right now. Which one is the American Party? If I do not like any political party, where does that leave me? I am all for parties, but the whole idea of a party is for people to have fun. I do not see any political party where I could have fun. The strange thing today is, if I do not belong to some political party I am not able to vote in this country. Moreover, if I do vote, who in the world do I vote for? My wife and I got to talking about this and I, for once in my life, posed a question. How would you describe the average American? Is the average American black, white, yellow, red or a mixture of colors? Do you define an American by the color of his or her skin? What about gender? Is the average American male or female? Then there is age. How old is the average American? We bounced these questions around for a long time and did not come up with any good answers. Then there was silence. I come back to one thought; why cant we just be Americans. Why do we have to have all the emphasis on variations, colors, temperaments and the people we elect to office who cannot tie their own shoes without conducting some poll? Why cant we send ordinary, common sense Americans to Washington, D.C., who understands the American life? Most of the politicians, if not all, live in a bubble and cannot relate to the average American in this country. I challenge these politicians to act like, live like common, everyday, normal Americans. We normal Americans have to live on a budget. If I do not have enough money, I have come to the end of my buying spree. I think this concept ought to be copyrighted and sent to Washington, D.C. It is a new concept. It will need somebody to interpret it to those who are living in that venomous circle that we call the capital of the United States. I would recommend a first grader. It would be refreshing to have somebody in Congress or the Senate who had common sense. I guess Will Rogers was right when he said the problem with common sense is it is no longer common. A real American is one who is committed to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A real American is one who embraces the red, white Why cant we all just be Americans? O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE6 on June 27 and 29. Four man teams competed for two days, with the cumulative score for the two days used to determine the winners. The format was the usual three best net. Thankfully Debby had passed through and the course was in good shape for the contest. We had 45 players for the event. The competition was fierce and the scores were close. The winning team with a score of 399 was Bruce Stover, John ONeill, Dick Feltenberger, and Paul Valois. Second with a score of 400 were Bob Salberg, Jim Spran, John DeSalvo, and Duke Slayton. Third with a score of 401 were Charlie Elder, John Wargo, Bill Start, and Wayne Feeman. After the last day of play lunch was served to the players by Royal Oaks and was excellent as usual. Thanks for a job well done. The tournament was chaired by Dick Blackburn, who was assisted in the scoring by Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, and our pro Lori Wilkes. This was the last tournament until fall, so its back to normal golf. Enjoy the course, and dont stay out in the sun too long! ORWGAHere is the list of winners of the June 21 Low Net Tournament.

Ocala Civic Theatre announces auditions for Best Little Whorehouse in Texas Check out our website www.smcitizen.com A young mother cat chose Cherrywood to have her first litter. Just a baby herself, she had 5 beautiful kittens four black and white males and one tabby female. SPCA received a call from a resident advising there were kittens in her bushes. Within three days the mother and her five kids were trapped and went into foster care. Mama was spayed through the Trap Neuter Release program operated by Sheltering Hands and the family was taken in by Arlene Cole, a SPCA foster parent. The kittens are now 3 months old, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested and ready for their permanent homes. The newest addition to our cat family is only seven weeks old and was found in a yard in OTOW. Tinkerbell is a feisty tabby female and ready to take on the world. She is available on a preadopt basis. To meet and adopt Tinkerbell or the Cherrywood crew, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. WARNING!! They are already spoiled and love home cooked chicken and fish. If you do not want to tackle the energy of a kitten, we have several other cats that need forever homes: two teenage cats who are seven months old, a mature four year old, and a senior cat who is about eight years old. They have been staying at foster mom Arlenes but would much prefer to be only cats in their own loving household. Pictures of all these kitties have been posted at area grocery stores and veterinarian offices, or call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to see the cats in person. Maybe you like cats but are not ready to commit to bringing one permanently into your home. Fostering would be a perfect way to enjoy the company of a cat while helping him or her find a home. Foster parents are desperately needed by all the rescue organizations. The SPCA is especially in need of volunteer fosters because we dont have a shelter and cant help if we dont have a foster home available. You do not need to be a member of the SPCA to volunteer, just a love of aniKittens found in Cherrywood need home P AWS AND CLAWS M D Maria Devine These kittens were found in Cherrywood.

There was one outdoor event where the dunking tank was put. The cotton candy machine malfunctioned but there was lots of popcorn being made as well as a toilet paper roll throw, and throwing a small ball into holes. A clown group from Summerfield pain ted faces and blew up long thin balloons which they twisted into various shapes and gave to residents and families. The biggest hit was a pie eating contest where some family members had whipped cream covered pies in front of them. On signal they were to see who could eat a pie the fastest without using utensils. Their faces were a mess at the finish but they enjoyed making the mess. (Photos by Mike Roppel) Showing off their new balloon hats are, from left, Arlene Potocnik, Joanne Armour, and Rae Lund. Premade ice cream sundaes of different flavors and a choice of toppings were also available for residents and families at the carnival.

LATE NEWS Progress Energy warns about utility bill scam Progress Energy is urging customers be on alert for a new utility bill payment scam affecting customers across the country. Scammers claim that President Obama will pay customers utility bills through a new federal program. Progress Energy has received reports of customers who have been contacted about this scam in its Carolinas and Florida service territories. According to the Better Business Bureau, customers have been contacted in person and through fliers, social media and text messages with claims that President Obama is providing credits or applying payments to utility bills. To receive the money, scammers claim they need the customers Social Security and bank routing numbers. In return, customers are given a false bank routing number that will supposedly pay their utility bills. In reality, there is no money, and customers believe they have paid their bills when in fact they have not. Progress Energy does not contact customers to obtain personally identifiable information. In addition, the company encourages customers and others not to open their door for utility workers INDEX Cherrywood......................16 Judis Journal.......................6 Marion Landing................13 Oak Run...............................19 Obituary................................3 Opinion`................................8 Out to Pastor........................5 Paws and Claws`.................3 Pun Alley.............................20 Puzzles.................................23CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, JULY 6, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 6 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, July 6, 2012 www.smcitizen.com PHOTO BY JIM CLARKTrash bins sit outside the Ocala Social Security office, which was damaged by floods from Tropical Storm Debby.

LATE NEWS Progress Energy warns about utility bill scamProgress Energy is urging customers be on alert for a new utility bill payment scam affecting customers across the country. Scammers claim that President Obama will pay customers utility bills through a new federal program. Progress Energy has received reports of customers who have been contacted about this scam in its Carolinas and Florida service territories. According to the Better Business Bureau, customers have been contacted in person and through fliers, social media and text messages with claims that President Obama is providing credits or applying payments to utility bills. To receive the money, scammers claim they need the customers Social Security and bank routing numbers. In return, customers are given a false bank routing number that will supposedly pay their utility bills. In reality, there is no money, and customers believe they have paid their bills when in fact they have not. Progress Energy does not contact customers to obtain personally identifiable information. In addition, the company encourages customers and others not to open their door for utility workers INDEX Cherrywood......................16 Judis Journal.......................6 Marion Landing................13 Oak Run...............................19 Obituary................................3 Opinion`................................8 Out to Pastor........................5 Paws and Claws`.................3 Pun Alley.............................20 Puzzles.................................23CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, JULY 6, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 6 www.smcitizen.com28~ Friday, July 6, 2012 www.smcitizen.com PHOTO BY JIM CLARKTrash bins sit outside the Ocala Social Security office, which was damaged by floods from Tropical Storm Debby.

Social Security office closed Flooding from tropical storm means no local site until August The large trash bins are in the parking lot, and material is being removed from the Ocala Social Security office. Tropical Storm Debby did its damage, so the office is now closed. According to a news release from Social Security, the office at 217 S.E. First Ave. is closed due to extensive flood damage. The office is scheduled to move to a new location in August. Since the damage to the current location will take several months to repair, it will remain closed and will reopen at the new location in August. The closing was reported last week on the websites of the South Marion Citizenand West Marion Messenger.According to Social Security officials, most Social Security business does not require a visit to the office.

FA C T O R Y TRAINED TECHNICIANS FREE CAR W ASH W/ANY SERVICE Come in and meet the new SERVICE MANAGER and GM Come in and meet the new SERVICE MANAGER and GM Carnival held for residents at Hampton Manor on 484 Ann Marie Malove, executive director, and Joe Lingerfelt, nurse manager, put together an indoor carnival for residents of Hampton Manor on June 23. There was one outdoor event where the dunking tank was put. The cotton candy machine malfunctioned but there was lots of popcorn being made as well as a toilet paper roll throw, and throwing a small ball into holes. A clown group from Summerfield painted faces and blew up long thin balloons which they twisted into various shapes and gave to residents and families. The biggest hit was a pie eating contest where some family members had whipped cream covered pies in front of them. On signal they were to see who could eat a pie the fastest without using utensils. Their faces were a mess at the finish but they enjoyed making the mess. (Photos by Mike Roppel) Showing off their new balloon hats are, from left, Arlene Potocnik, Joanne Armour, and Rae Lund. Premade ice cream sundaes of different flavors and a choice of toppings were also available for residents and families at the carnival. This young fellow had his mouth open ready to eat as he was served his sundae. More photos from the Hollywood 16 premiere of John Travoltas Savages Contributing photographer Ron Ratner joined the crowd that welcomed actor John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, to the Hollywood 16 Theater in Ocala for the opening of his new movie, Savages. In addition to the photo on Page 1, he submitted these photos.

Progress Energy employees carry company identification badges with photographs. But because identification badges, vehicle signs and clothing can be fabricated to look authentic, none of these is sufficient to verify a persons identity. Other than in emergencies or safetyrelated issues, there are almost no instances when a representative of Progress Energy would come to a customers home unannounced and ask to enter to perform work or provide a service. Any homeowner in doubt about the identity of someone claiming to be a Progress Energy employee should keep the door closed and locked and call Progress Energys customer service center 1-800-700-8744 in Florida to confirm the employees identity and need for entry. Customers who are contacted by phone, email, through social media or through other channels can verify an individuals affiliation with Progress Energy by calling the same number.

Ocala Civic Theatre announces auditions for Best Little Whorehouse in Texas Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Ayoung mother cat chose Cherrywood to have her first litter. Just a baby herself, she had 5 beautiful kittens four black and white males and one tabby female. SPCA received a call from a resident advising there were kittens in her bushes. Within three days the mother and her five kids were trapped and went into foster care. Mama was spayed through the Trap Neuter Release program operated by Sheltering Hands and the family was taken in by Arlene Cole, a SPCA foster parent. The kittens are now 3 months old, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested and ready for their permanent homes. The newest addition to our cat family is only seven weeks old and was found in a yard in OTOW. Tinkerbell is a feisty tabby female and ready to take on the world. She is available on a preadopt basis. To meet and adopt Tinkerbell or the Cherrywood crew, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. WARNING!! They are already spoiled and love home cooked chicken and fish. If you do not want to tackle the energy of a kitten, we have several other cats that need forever homes: two teenage cats who are seven months old, a mature four year old, and a senior cat who is about eight years old. They have been staying at foster mom Arlenes but would much prefer to be only cats in their own loving household. Pictures of all these kitties have been posted at area grocery stores and veterinarian offices, or call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to see the cats in person. Maybe you like cats but are not ready to commit to bringing one permanently into your home. Fostering would be a perfect way to enjoy the company of a cat while helping him or her find a home. Foster parents are desperately needed by all the rescue organizations. The SPCA is especially in need of volunteer fosters because we dont have a shelter and cant help if we dont have a foster home available. You do not need to be a member of the SPCA to volunteer, just a love of aniKittens found in Cherrywood need home PAWS AND CLAWS M DMaria Devine These kittens were found in Cherrywood.

What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of TV. I was half dozing, as is usually my condition after such a supper, when my wife startled me with a question. It was a news program on television updating us with the latest political scratch-talk. If it were not for politics, the airwaves would be silent. Oh, for those wonderful sounds of silence. Personally, I would be glad to double my tax rate if in doing so we could put to silence all this political-scratch-talk. I call it scratch-talk because whoever is talking is trying to scratch somebodys back even if it is just their own. I guess we have a lot of itchy backs in this country. Thankfully, we have an endless supply of backscratching politicians. It does not matter which way the wind is blowing; each political party says it is blowing in their direction. I guess you have to go eight years to Harvard and have a student loan debt of $120,000 to understand how that works. If you do not mind, I just do not want to know how it works. With the politicians unable to create work in our country for common Americans, the real Americans, they sure know how to work a situation, usually to their advantage. If they could put all of this to work for the good of the ordinary American, I would feel happier about paying my taxes. As it is, I pay my taxes but not happily. Back to my wifes question. Who are, she said very carefully, the real Americans in this country? Then she paused for a moment and followed it with this question, Who does America really belong to? Well, those two questions got me thinking. Who are the real Americans? Are they Republicans, Democrats or Independents? I know there is a bunch of other miscellaneous political parties but I cannot think of them right now. Which one is the American Party? If I do not like any political party, where does that leave me? I am all for parties, but the whole idea of a party is for people to have fun. I do not see any political party where I could have fun. The strange thing today is, if I do not belong to some political party I am not able to vote in this country. Moreover, if I do vote, who in the world do I vote for? My wife and I got to talking about this and I, for once in my life, posed a question. How would you describe the average American? Is the average American black, white, yellow, red or a mixture of colors? Do you define an American by the color of his or her skin? What about gender? Is the average American male or female? Then there is age. How old is the average American? We bounced these questions around for a long time and did not come up with any good answers. Then there was silence. I come back to one thought; why cant we just be Americans. Why do we have to have all the emphasis on variations, colors, temperaments and the people we elect to office who cannot tie their own shoes without conducting some poll? Why cant we send ordinary, common sense Americans to Washington, D.C., who understands the American life? Most of the politicians, if not all, live in a bubble and cannot relate to the average American in this country. I challenge these politicians to act like, live like common, everyday, normal Americans. We normal Americans have to live on a budget. If I do not have enough money, I have come to the end of my buying spree. I think this concept ought to be copyrighted and sent to Washington, D.C. It is a new concept. It will need somebody to interpret it to those who are living in that venomous circle that we call the capital of the United States. I would recommend a first grader. It would be refreshing to have somebody in Congress or the Senate who had common sense. I guess Will Rogers was right when he said the problem with common sense is it is no longer common. A real American is one who is committed to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A real American is one who embraces the red, white Why cant we all just be Americans? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE6 on June 27 and 29. Four man teams competed for two days, with the cumulative score for the two days used to determine the winners. The format was the usual three best net. Thankfully Debby had passed through and the course was in good shape for the contest. We had 45 players for the event. The competition was fierce and the scores were close. The winning team with a score of 399 was Bruce Stover, John ONeill, Dick Feltenberger, and Paul Valois. Second with a score of 400 were Bob Salberg, Jim Spran, John DeSalvo, and Duke Slayton. Third with a score of 401 were Charlie Elder, John Wargo, Bill Start, and Wayne Feeman. After the last day of play lunch was served to the players by Royal Oaks and was excellent as usual. Thanks for a job well done. The tournament was chaired by Dick Blackburn, who was assisted in the scoring by Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, and our pro Lori Wilkes. This was the last tournament until fall, so its back to normal golf. Enjoy the course, and dont stay out in the sun too long! ORWGAHere is the list of winners of the June 21 Low Net Tournament.

A real American is the one who can clutch his five-dollar bill and say, in God we trust. If it is good for our money, it is good for our life. If only the American people, the real people of America, would wake up and see what our politicians are doing, perhaps they would do what our early founders did. In celebrating another Fourth of July, my thought is simply, why not just be an American. A real American also embraces what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Is that the sound of a drumbeat I hear off in the distance?Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Whatever your political leanings may be, it is clear that throughout American history, American presidents have made important decisions concerning their actions and appointments of Jews to the American government. Having just celebrated our independence on July 4, it seems only fitting to explore some of these presidential decisions and how they affected the lives of American Jews. George Washington was the first president to write letters to several synagogues including the Touro Synagogue of Rhode Island and Mikveh Israel of Savannah. These letters assured the Jews living in the new country that the United States did not tolerate bigotry and that religious freedom was an American right. Thomas Jefferson was the first president to appoint a Jew to a federal post. In 1801, Reuben Etting of Baltimore was named a U. S. marshal for Maryland. Mordecai M. Noah was appointed by James Madison to a diplomatic post, the first Jew to be so honored. He served as ambassador to Tunis from 1813-16. Martin Van Buren was the first president to intercede on behalf of Jewish Americans abroad. In 1840, he instructed the U.S. consul in Egypt to protect the Jews of Damascus who had been under attack for a false anti-Semitic blood libel. Only in America does a Quaker who converts to Judaism become a U.S. consul to Palestine. This is what John Tyler did in 1844 when he appointed Warder Cresson. Washington Hebrew Congregation, the first synagogue in the District, has Franklin Pierces name on its charter, because he signed an Act of Congress 1857 that amended the law so that the synagogue could become incorporated. Abraham Lincoln was the first president to appoint Jewish chaplains to the military. He also rescinded the only anti-Semitic government decree when General Grant issued his infamous Order No. 11 expelling Jews from Union territory in Tennessee. Grant claimed his subordinate issued the decree. During his administration, he was the first president to attend a synagogue service while in office. He and his whole cabinet attended the dedication of Adas Israel in Washington, D.C. in 1874. Rutherford B. Hayes is noted for two important firsts. He appointed Benjamin Peixotto ConsulGeneral to Romania to help fight anti-Semitism. He also upheld a Jewish womans right to observe Shabbat by ensuring her employment with the Department of the Interior after she was denied the position for refusing to work on Saturday. Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to appoint a Jew to his cabinet. The appointment was for Oscar Strauss who was named Secretary of Commerce and Labor. Teddy also was the first president to contribute to a Jewish cause with his own private funds. From the monies he received as a Nobel Peace recipient in 1919 for settling the Russo-Japanese War, Roosevelt contributed to the National Jewish Welfare Board. In 1912, William Howard Taft became the first president to attend a seder. This was at the home of Jewish Welfare Board president, Colonel Henry Cutler. Looks like both presidents ate matza! Woodrow Wilson was the first president to appoint a Jew to the Supreme Court. Despite pressure to withdraw the nomination, Wilson went ahead and appointed Louis Brandeis (namesake for the university). Other presidents followed by also naming Jews in the ensuing years. Wilson also was the first to publically endorse a national Jewish philanthropic campaign. The United Jewish Relief Campaign, which was raising funds for the European War effort, received Wilsons support in a letter to Jacob Schiff in 1917. Early support for the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine came from Warren Harding when he signed a Joint Congressional Resolution in support of the Balfour Declaration, the document issued by Great Britain, which stated favor for an establishment of a Jewish national homeland. This occurred in 1922. Calvin Coolidge, silent Cal, was the first president to help dedicate a Jewish community center and not a house of worship. In 1925, he dedicated the Washington, D.C. Jewish community center. FDRs administration still falls into the controversy category even today. There is proof that this president knew of the Nazis diabolical plans to annihilate the Jews of Europe and could have taken steps to bomb the tracks leading to the concentration camps. He also could have increased the refugee quota, which might have saved more lives. He did, however, lead the Allies against the Nazis and is remembered for the military campaigns, which ultimately ended World War II. In spite of this all, there are many who see Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a force against tyranny. He was the first president to be given a Torah as a gift, one that had been rescued from a burning Czech synagogue, another, a miniature one from Young Israel. Harry Truman, the president who quipped at a KKK meeting that the people there were so stupid that they bought their sheets from a Jewish merchant, was the first head of state to publically announce recognition of the new State of Israel just 11 minutes after independence was declared. He also was the first to receive an Israeli president, Chaim Weizman and ambassador, Eliahu Elat, in 1948. Truman was also instrumental in securing millions in loans and grants to help the fledgling state with mass immigration during 1951-52. As the United States moved further into the 1950s, the involvement of Jews in the government increased and their presence was more apparent.

Friday, July 6, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Voter purge is an expression which creates a deserved negative impression about legal efforts to identify unqualified voters and remove them from the rolls. Early in his term as Florida governor, Rick Scott stated an intention to identify and remove unqualified voters from the states voting rolls. At the time, at least one prominent newspaper suggested the governors intentions seemed justifiable and defensible. As the presidential election drew closer, however, press opinions turned negative. Are voter qualification reviews in Florida and several other states tinged with political motives? Wed be surprised if they werent. But that isnt the issue. Everyone who pays attention to important news knows that at least seven of the 9/ll hijackers who declared war on the U.S. were illegally registered voters. The non-citizen hijackers found it just as easy to become registered voters as it was to obtain visas, social security cards, and drivers licenses. Those most opposed to voter verification efforts dismiss cases of impersonation, fictitious www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 6, 2012 In case it sneaked up on you, Sunday was July 1, which means in Florida that most of those new laws the Legislature passed took effect. Ive tracked down a few of them, so here goes. The one that most people will notice, and applaud, is the approval of the sales tax holiday for back-to-school items. The holiday is Aug. 3 to Aug. 5, and includes various clothing and school supplies, but not books, that cost less than $75. Its part of an economic development package that includes money for incentives and a corporate tax break. Its designed to help lure businesses to the state. The state has also taken action to try to cut back on auto insurance fraud. Accident reports now have to include information on the driver and all passengers. Also, as of Jan. 1, personal injury protection payments are limited for non-emergency treatment, and if youre a fan of massage therapy or acupuncture, forget it. That will no longer be covered. Insurance rates are supposed to go down, but insurance companies can defend the failure to do so with the state, so dont start spending your savings just yet. Prayers at school events? School boards may now set guidelines for students to give inspirational messages at school events. This is, of course, a law begging for a lawsuit, so any school board that does so is risking a court trip. Still, there are renegade school boards out there, not speaking of anyone specific you understand, so who knows? Other items to keep an eye on: School funding around the state is supposed to increase, but well hold our breath on that one. Its now illegal to tape anyone in a residential dwelling with his or her knowledge. This comes from the Erin Andrews hotel peephole case. Frankly, I thought that already was illegal. One interesting aspect of the law is that its a felony if youre 19, but a misdemeanor if youre 18 or younger. Isnt a crime a crime? Strange! And if youre buying a timeshare, there are new rules to protect you. One new law that didnt quite make it would have banned the government from doing business with companies who have links, even through parent companies, with Cuba. A federal judge in Miami blocked that law from taking effect last week. Im sure there are more, less significant, laws that are going on the books. In most cases, though, if you use common sense, youll be fine. Then again, it was our Legislature that passed these things, so .Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

So the health care act has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and that unleashed fear and anger among many Americans who feel we are moving further and further into socialism. Ironically, the decision came just a few days before the Fourth of July, when we celebrate the freedom of Americans. Many are saying they hope we will still have a free America a few years from now as the July 4 holiday rolls around for our children and grandchildren. One of the scariest analyses came from Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, as well as a long-time practitioner of general internal medicine, who says the reform is likely to do greater harm than good for doctors and patients. One thing that may happen, first of all, is that your doctor might not even be there any more because a high percentage of physicians have said they cannot afford to or simply will not practice under these new regulations, Orient explained. She also said that the groups most at risk of suffering a decline in care are senior citizens, people who tend to be sicker, even young children because the emphasis is on people in their most productive years of life. According to published reports, among the potential negative impacts on treatment, Orient listed longer wait times to see the doctor, limited access to specialists, group visits because doctors dont have time to see patients one-on-one, and diminished freedom of choice for patients. A lot of people think oh goody, all these things are free, but it still comes with a price, Orient said. You will get whatever the system thinks you should have. Orient said the changes would likely be devastating to close doctor-patient relationships. Thats the very worst feature, the destruction of the doctor-patient relationship, she said. It doesnt support compassion or dedication to doing your very best; instead its about checking off boxes. The first big test will come in November. Will enough Americans be upset with this ruling to vote for a Republican president, Senate and House? Or will we be divided still after the ballots are cast? When you go to the polls, remember that one key phrase from above: All things come with a price. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The looming woes of health care act Sales tax holiday among new laws Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Registration of voters is a public trust Hes got to goMy first reaction to the court decision on Obama Care was one of disgust; however it may be the very thing that was needed to get rid of that horrendous plan. Hopefully, the majority of Americans should now be interested enough to examine the details, and unlike Congress, read the bill. Most polls show that roughly 80 percent of us have no idea how many changes will occur that will dramatically increase health costs to every hard working, tax paying citizen. For example, how many are excited about having to pay 3.8 percent tax on the sale of your home beginning in 2013? There is no way the intelligent will want this plan. This has never been about health care, it is about big government takeover, the biggest power grab in our history! This can and will destroy America as we know it unless Romney is elected and he, with a Republican Congress, repeals it. Everyone agrees that we need to make needed changes in our health coverage, but changes can be made that do not lay the burden on taxpayers and those who willingly pay their own way. Those who never pay their own way will obviously love this plan because they love having the other guy pay for them.

Their mantra is Catch some more bad guys, and then well take you seriously. They dont offer alternatives for catching the frauds One of the most thorough critics has been the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Their perspective is that the problem of unqualified voters is greatly exaggerated, tinged with racial motives, and discouraging to eligible voters. Like other critics, they suggest the states find the unqualified voters first, then make a case for searching the polls. Thats called specious reasoning a fancy word for double-talk. When a federal court rejected a Department of Justice request to block Floridas examination of DOJ citizen lists, DOJ said Florida is working with a list which has critical imperfections which may harm or confuse voters. DOJ had been stonewalling Floridas requests to access a federal data base against which to check the names on the states list. Political motives by DOJ? The judge told the feds if they wanted honest elections, they should cooperate with the state. The most interesting aspect of the federal-state conflict is that federal law requires states to remove the names of ineligible voters from official lists, an upshot of the 2000 election recount fiasco in Florida. The Justice Department says they think thats a good idea, if the states can show widespread abuse first. More double-talk. The political nonsense between DOJ and the states may have a good effect nonetheless. Publicity focused on voter registrations might just discourage those who would commit a crime by voting illegally, whether they are few or many. As for suggestions that a purge intimidates qualified voters, we think not. Citizens who make the effort to become qualified voters, and gladly suffer any inconveniences, will turn out to vote come hell or high water. Its called exercising a primary right of citizenship. among us, but past experience shows that many of them dont have it because they arent willing to pay for it! Who wouldnt rather buy that new car, flat screen TV, or other luxury item with that money? This is true now and was 40 years ago, I personally heard that story many times. One obvious fact: If Obama is re-elected, we will have Obama Care, so examine it carefully before voting. Obama also wants illegals to have an easy path (30 years old, been here five years) to citizenPLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 JiggleMan (Banks Helfrich) from Orlando came to the Freeedom Public Library June 27 to entertain youngsters and anyone else wanting a good afternoon laugh. JiggleMan jiggled his way through a delightful performance that really got the full library audience rolling in laughter. He jiggled for what seemed forever as he did his ball tricks, passed out balloons, and did tricks with a wannabe hair dryer. JiggleMan said he has lots of friends on Facebook so people can leave comments for him about his wonderful smile making tricks. His parting comments were to ask the audience to check out books before they left, which made the library staff happy. JiggleMan pays a visit to Freedom Public Library PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELThe library was filled to capacity by children of all ages including several from the Capstone Childcare Academy, who came an hour early to get front row seats on the floor. JiggleMan is putting large rings on his head as part of his tricks. The rings also were changed into squares as part of the trick. Library employees Heather Ogilvie, Branch Supervisor, and Wolly Barrett, Librarian II are telling the audience about JiggleMan just before he started his tricks.

The Dog Days are upon us the hottest, most sultry days of summer. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius the Dog Star, now close to the sun, was responsible for the hot weather. So, we have some doggy treats for you.Two new dogsA girl was visiting her friend who had acquired two new dogs and asked the dogs names. The friend said that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. The girl said, Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that? Hellooooo, she answered, Theyre watch dogs!Beware of the dogThe little country store had a sign warning, Danger! Beware of dog! Inside, there was a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of? one customer asked the owner. Yep, thats him. That certainly doesnt look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign? Before I posted the sign, people kept tripping over him.Shaggy Dog StoryA man walked into a bar with a collie and both proceeded to get blitzed. The dog drank so much it passed out on the floor. When the man went to leave the bartender yelled, Hey! You cant leave that lyin there! The drunk replied, Thats not a lion. Its a collie.Dog bitesMy neighbors dog bit me in the leg today. Did you put anything on it? No, he liked it just as it was. The dog went to the corner when the doorbell rang because he was a Boxer. A police dog is often the scenter of a drug arrest. During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking. One said to the other, The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn all this stuff you will never use in the real world. The dog is an Arctic explorer. He goes from pole to pole. You can tell its raining cats and dogs when there are poodles in the street. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. They call their dog handyman because he does odd jobs around the house. A dog is mans best friend because he wags his tail instead of his tongue. One dog asked another, Whats your name? The other answered, Im not sure, but I think its Down Boy. Airdale?A pair of city slickers bought a pedigreed bird dog from a farmer. They took the dog out on a snipe hunting expedition, but the dog sat down and slept. One of the city slickers said, So much for hunting. Now lets throw him into the air. If he doesnt fly, well bring him back.DogoneSuffering from a dog bite a man was taken to the hospital. Some hours later, someone from the pound came to see him and gave him the bad news that the dog was mad. The victim said, How do you like that? He bit me and hes mad?What a tale!In a small country pub everyone liked the owners little dog being around and were quite upset when the dog died. They decided to cut off his tail and stick it up behind the bar to commemorate the dogs friendly behavior. The little dog went up to heaven and was stopped by Saint Peter, who said, Heaven is a place of perfection, you cant come into heaven without a tail. Where is your tail? The little dog explained what had happened back on earth. St. Peter told the little dog to go back down to earth and retrieve his tail. The little dog protested that it was now the middle of the night, but Saint Peter would not reconsider. So the little dog went back down to earth and scratched on the door of the pub until the bartender who lived upstairs came down and opened the door. The bartender said, My goodness, it is the spirit of the little dog. What can I do for you? The little dog explained that he wasnt allowed into heaven without his tail, and he needed it back. The bartender replied, I would really like to help you, but my liquor license doesnt allow me to retail spirits after hours. ship. They cant even provide a legal ID, how can he expect them to be able to prove their age and exactly how long they have been here? He wants illegals here because he knows they will vote for democrats. What party fights to let them vote and doesnt want us to purge the voter rolls? The only reasonable objection would have to be your wanting to cheat. Lets have no more acorn stories like the young woman who admitted voting 18 times. Which America do you want? This next election is the most important in my lifetime, and yours. Wayne Rackley OcalaNot paying taxes?I am really tired of some people complaining about others not paying taxes. So lets set the record straight. There are some who dont pay any Income Tax. Why? Because they dont have the minimum required to pay the tax. No or low income no Income Tax due. What about Social Security and Medicare taxes? We all pay or have paid into that. Do they own a home or pay rent? Yes? Then they pay property tax either directly or through their landlord. Do they buy gas? If so, they pay taxes. Do they buy clothes or other items? They pay taxes. Do they have a phone? They pay taxes. I think you get my drift. We all pay taxes of one kind or another so lets stop talking about the Socialists Freeloaders. Were all in the same boat. If it sinks we all drown. One more tax item. The recent Supreme Court ruling says that the penalty for not getting health insurance is a tax. Some are saying it is a big tax increase on the middle class. It is my understanding that according to the new law, officially called the Affordable Care Act, will require that you indicate on your tax form whether you do or do not have medical insurance. If you dont and you are due a refund then your refund will be reduced by the amount of the penalty. If you are not due a refund you are not assessed the penalty. So if you dont want to get medical insurance and dont want to pay the penalty, make sure you are not due a refund. Lets quit squabbling and work together to provide some form of affordable health care to those who need it. James Merrick OcalaOak Run walkersThis is another opinion on the issue of walkers on the boulevard in Oak Run. I couldnt help putting my two cents in, which is a good approximation of the value of mine and all the others to date. Looks like its shaping up to be a war between the walkers and the anti-walkers. Let me confirm right off that Im a walker, but I can understand the complaints of the anti-walkers. As the writer in todays edition stated, there are nice folks in Oak Run, and there are others. So far, Ive only encountered the nice folks, and that includes the lady who owns the dog that took a bite out of my hand that required 10 stitches to sew up. Oak Run is a closed gate community, a beautiful place to live, and a great place to walk. But if you have long legs, you dont want to be restricted to going round and round in the small section you live in, especially when there are miles of streets available. Unfortunately, to get to those streets, it becomes necessary at times to walk on the boulevard. Now, the best solution for that would be to build sidewalks, but its a lot cheaper to just put up signs restricting pedestrian traffic. So thats what the owners did, so they dont have to pay your insurance claim. There is a common sense approach to this problem, and here I understand the antiwalkers complaint. Ive questioned the intelligence of walkers myself when I see people walking along the boulevard, even when on the proper side, facing traffic, who insist they are entitled to a share of the road. They are not. The new signs tell them so. I think they are ill-advised to contest an automobile for a portion of the pavement. In any contest with an automobile, the walker is going to come in second. For crying out loud, if they would just get off the road when a car comes and walk a few steps on the grass on the shoulder, no one would have a legitimate complaint. Im just saying. .

As Lewis Carroll wrote in Through the Looking Glass, When I use a word, Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, it means just what I choose it to mean neither more nor less. Chief Justice John Robertss opinion holds that the penalty for not complying with the mandate is both a tax and not a tax depending on the question. If the question is whether someone may sue to strike down the mandate, the court says yes, because the penalty is not a tax. Under the Tax Anti-Injunction Act (first passed in 1867 but since updated), one may not ask for an injunction against a tax before it has been enforced. One must wait to be taxed, request a refund from the IRS, and if turned down, then sue the government. In the Obamacare case, the Court denied such an attempt to have the challenge dismissed by declaring the penalty not a tax. But only for purposes of the Tax Anti-Injunction Act. It was another story when the question was whether the mandate is constitutional. The government made two arguments in defense of its mandate. The primary argument was that Congress may require the purchase of insurance under the Commerce Clause. This clause, which empowers Congress To regulate commerce among the several States, has long been interpreted to include even activities that merely affect interstate commerce. Roberts and four other members of the court (Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito) did not buy this argument. The Framers gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it, Roberts wrote. He rebutted in great detail the Obama administrations many arguments that penalizing people for not buying insurance was a way to regulate interstate commerce. Fine. It does seem a stretch to claim that forcing people to engage in commerce (buying insurGUEST COMMENTARY PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE10 Some canine treats for the dog days of summer PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank mals and a willingness to help a lost homeless pet.

July 4 has come and gone and Oak Runners had a blast of a day. The residents of Oak Run watched their parade on the boulevard starting at 8 a.m. The parade included people representing six neighborhoods, eight clubs, and members of ORHA. In addition there were representatives from the Marion County Fife & Drum Corps, two sheriffs vehicles, and two fire trucks. We also had six antique/luxury cars, 10 motorcycles, one scooter, 43 golf carts and two trailers. There were two famous gentlemen representing our countrys heritage, Abe Lincoln and Uncle Sam. As always there was special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female. There is never a better time to thank all of the veterans for the many sacrifices they and their comrades have made for our country. The cool down followed immediately after the parade at the Orchid Club with approximately 300 residents and guests in attendance. There were refreshments while we listened to the sounds of the Fife & Drum Corps, the presentation of colors (military style), songs, a reading of a poem, a patriotic video and several speakers. That was only the morning. The afternoon session was at Palm Grove beginning at approximately 1:30 p.m. The area around Palm Grove was where you went to eat and play games for prizes There were more than 300 food tickets sold for hot dogs and hamburgers as well as all the condiments plus three different kinds of salads, jumbo sized cookies and soft drinks. In addition to the games (eight games in total) there were prizes for the contestants that could score the highest points. There were 5 clowns available for face painting as well as getting into pictures with the many children that came to participate. A gathering like this could never have been the great success it was if it wasnt for the many volunteers that came and gave their time. There were over 80 Oak Run residents who helped at every step, such as crossing guards for the morning parade, people to manage the games and give out the prizes, people to help with the collection of the food tickets and dispensing of the food. The planning that went into this event was basically hard work by the July 4th committee that was chaired by Damian Romano, assisted by his wife, Audrey. The details for setting up, planning and assignment of the volunteers were handled by Bill Pascoe and his wife, Carol. In addition to the aforementioned the following people deserve a big round of applause for their invaluable assistance: the Feltmans, McHales, Pikes, Routtes, Andrews and Meinsens to name but a few. It was an enjoyable day and a beautiful way to pay homage to the veterans of our great country.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of Anna Boodee interviewing Dick Boden about his music and the beginnings of Way Off Broadway in Oak Run.

As Roberts said, regulating something presupposes the existence of that something. But the mandate seeks to create commercial activity where it does not exist. Interestingly, Robertss four allies on this point were actually in the minority of the overall case. The other four members of the majority (Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg) found the mandate perfectly consistent with the Commerce Clause. So how did Roberts form a majority with those four to uphold the mandate? The government had a backup argument for its claim, and this one found favor with the five. The government argued that should the Commerce Clause argument fail, the court can think of the mandate penalty as wait for it a tax! Its long been established in the law that Congress may regulate action (or inaction) by taxing it even if it may not constitutionally regulate it directly. Voila! What seemed unconstitutional became constitutional. The penalty (the term used in the law) now is a tax, even though earlier in the opinion the Court said the penalty is not a tax. Justice Humpty Dumpty has spoken. Strangely, some opponents of Obamacare are rejoicing over the decision. Randy Barnett, the constitutional law professor at Georgetown University Law Center who is credited with formulating the case against the governments Commerce Clause argument, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post declaring, We Lost on Health Care. But the Constitution Won. Hows that? Barnetts point is that Robertss affirmation of limits to the Commerce Clause struck a historic blow for individual liberty and against government power. Considered in isolation, Robertss refusal to include abstention from buying insurance under the rubric of interstate commerce could be applauded. Unfortunately, Roberts didnt leave the stage after singing that aria. He went on to say that RICHMANC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 9 other constitutional grounds exist on which the government can penalize us if we fail to buy insurance. So wheres the victory for liberty? There is none here. The court has long held that the government may use its all-embracing constitutional taxing power to regulate our conduct. To the person being forced, does it really matter which constitutional clause is invoked?Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.

Their luggage consists of kosher food, Jewish books and educational material, as well as tefillin, mezuzot and other religious articles. All in all, thousands of mezuzot and ten of thousands of Jewish information packets are distributed each year in thousands of communities. Our goal is to make Judaism accessible, inviting and relevant to every Jew, everywhere Says Rabbi Yossi Hecht, Director of the Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County The hundreds of young students who participate in this annual program stand on the forefront of Jewish life and were honored to have them join us here visiting the Jewish communities in Marion, Citrus, Sumter, and Lake Counties. Visiting the Marion County and surrounding areas are Rabbi Ari Leib Laufer from Providence, Rohde Island, and Rabbi Moshe Pape from Brooklyn, New York. They will be in Ocala from now through July 25th. Reserve your visit today!

Their luggage consists of kosher food, Jewish books and educational material, as well as tefillin, mezuzot and other religious articles. All in all, thousands of mezuzot and ten of thousands of Jewish information packets are distributed each year in thousands of communities. Our goal is to make Judaism accessible, inviting and relevant to every Jew, everywhere Says Rabbi Yossi Hecht, Director of the Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County The hundreds of young students who participate in this annual program stand on the forefront of Jewish life and were honored to have them join us here visiting the Jewish communities in Marion, Citrus, Sumter, and Lake Counties.

July 4 has come and gone and Oak Runners had a blast of a day. The residents of Oak Run watched their parade on the boulevard starting at 8 a.m. The parade included people representing six neighborhoods, eight clubs, and members of ORHA. In addition there were representatives from the Marion County Fife & Drum Corps, two sheriffs vehicles, and two fire trucks. We also had six antique/luxury cars, 10 motorcycles, one scooter, 43 golf carts and two trailers. There were two famous gentlemen representing our countrys heritage, Abe Lincoln and Uncle Sam. As always there was special transportation for all of our veterans, male and female. There is never a better time to thank all of the veterans for the many sacrifices they and their comrades have made for our country. The cool down followed immediately after the parade at the Orchid Club with approximately 300 residents and guests in attendance. There were refreshments while we listened to the sounds of the Fife & Drum Corps, the presentation of colors (military style), songs, a reading of a poem, a patriotic video and several speakers. That was only the morning. The afternoon session was at Palm Grove beginning at approximately 1:30 p.m. The area around Palm Grove was where you went to eat and play games for prizes There were more than 300 food tickets sold for hot dogs and hamburgers as well as all the condiments plus three different kinds of salads, jumbo sized cookies and soft drinks. In addition to the games (eight games in total) there were prizes for the contestants that could score the highest points. There were 5 clowns available for face painting as well as getting into pictures with the many children that came to participate. A gathering like this could never have been the great success it was if it wasnt for the many volunteers that came and gave their time. There were over 80 Oak Run residents who helped at every step, such as crossing guards for the morning parade, people to manage the games and give out the prizes, people to help with the collection of the food tickets and dispensing of the food. The planning that went into this event was basically hard work by the July 4th committee that was chaired by Damian Romano, assisted by his wife, Audrey. The details for setting up, planning and assignment of the volunteers were handled by Bill Pascoe and his wife, Carol. In addition to the aforementioned the following people deserve a big round of applause for their invaluable assistance: the Feltmans, McHales, Pikes, Routtes, Andrews and Meinsens to name but a few. It was an enjoyable day and a beautiful way to pay homage to the veterans of our great country.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of Anna Boodee interviewing Dick Boden about his music and the beginnings of Way Off Broadway in Oak Run.

As Roberts said, regulating something presupposes the existence of that something. But the mandate seeks to create commercial activity where it does not exist. Interestingly, Robertss four allies on this point were actually in the minority of the overall case. The other four members of the majority (Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg) found the mandate perfectly consistent with the Commerce Clause. So how did Roberts form a majority with those four to uphold the mandate? The government had a backup argument for its claim, and this one found favor with the five. The government argued that should the Commerce Clause argument fail, the court can think of the mandate penalty as wait for it a tax! Its long been established in the law that Congress may regulate action (or inaction) by taxing it even if it may not constitutionally regulate it directly. Voila! What seemed unconstitutional became constitutional. The penalty (the term used in the law) now is a tax, even though earlier in the opinion the Court said the penalty is not a tax. Justice Humpty Dumpty has spoken. Strangely, some opponents of Obamacare are rejoicing over the decision. Randy Barnett, the constitutional law professor at Georgetown University Law Center who is credited with formulating the case against the governments Commerce Clause argument, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post declaring, We Lost on Health Care. But the Constitution Won. Hows that? Barnetts point is that Robertss affirmation of limits to the Commerce Clause struck a historic blow for individual liberty and against government power. Considered in isolation, Robertss refusal to include abstention from buying insurance under the rubric of interstate commerce could be applauded. Unfortunately, Roberts didnt leave the stage after singing that aria. He went on to say that RICHMANC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 9 other constitutional grounds exist on which the government can penalize us if we fail to buy insurance. So wheres the victory for liberty? There is none here. The court has long held that the government may use its all-embracing constitutional taxing power to regulate our conduct. To the person being forced, does it really matter which constitutional clause is invoked?Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.

The Dog Days are upon us the hottest, most sultry days of summer. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius the Dog Star, now close to the sun, was responsible for the hot weather. So, we have some doggy treats for you.Two new dogsA girl was visiting her friend who had acquired two new dogs and asked the dogs names. The friend said that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. The girl said, Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that? Hellooooo, she answered, Theyre watch dogs!Beware of the dogThe little country store had a sign warning, Danger! Beware of dog! Inside, there was a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of? one customer asked the owner. Yep, thats him. That certainly doesnt look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign? Before I posted the sign, people kept tripping over him.Shaggy Dog StoryA man walked into a bar with a collie and both proceeded to get blitzed. The dog drank so much it passed out on the floor. When the man went to leave the bartender yelled, Hey! You cant leave that lyin there! The drunk replied, Thats not a lion. Its a collie.Dog bitesMy neighbors dog bit me in the leg today. Did you put anything on it? No, he liked it just as it was. The dog went to the corner when the doorbell rang because he was a Boxer. A police dog is often the scenter of a drug arrest. During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking. One said to the other, The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn all this stuff you will never use in the real world. The dog is an Arctic explorer. He goes from pole to pole. You can tell its raining cats and dogs when there are poodles in the street. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. They call their dog handyman because he does odd jobs around the house. A dog is mans best friend because he wags his tail instead of his tongue. One dog asked another, Whats your name? The other answered, Im not sure, but I think its Down Boy. Airdale?A pair of city slickers bought a pedigreed bird dog from a farmer. They took the dog out on a snipe hunting expedition, but the dog sat down and slept. One of the city slickers said, So much for hunting. Now lets throw him into the air. If he doesnt fly, well bring him back.DogoneSuffering from a dog bite a man was taken to the hospital. Some hours later, someone from the pound came to see him and gave him the bad news that the dog was mad. The victim said, How do you like that? He bit me and hes mad?What a tale!In a small country pub everyone liked the owners little dog being around and were quite upset when the dog died. They decided to cut off his tail and stick it up behind the bar to commemorate the dogs friendly behavior. The little dog went up to heaven and was stopped by Saint Peter, who said, Heaven is a place of perfection, you cant come into heaven without a tail. Where is your tail? The little dog explained what had happened back on earth. St. Peter told the little dog to go back down to earth and retrieve his tail. The little dog protested that it was now the middle of the night, but Saint Peter would not reconsider. So the little dog went back down to earth and scratched on the door of the pub until the bartender who lived upstairs came down and opened the door. The bartender said, My goodness, it is the spirit of the little dog. What can I do for you? The little dog explained that he wasnt allowed into heaven without his tail, and he needed it back. The bartender replied, I would really like to help you, but my liquor license doesnt allow me to retail spirits after hours. ship. They cant even provide a legal ID, how can he expect them to be able to prove their age and exactly how long they have been here? He wants illegals here because he knows they will vote for democrats. What party fights to let them vote and doesnt want us to purge the voter rolls? The only reasonable objection would have to be your wanting to cheat. Lets have no more acorn stories like the young woman who admitted voting 18 times. Which America do you want? This next election is the most important in my lifetime, and yours. Wayne Rackley OcalaNot paying taxes?I am really tired of some people complaining about others not paying taxes. So lets set the record straight. There are some who dont pay any Income Tax. Why? Because they dont have the minimum required to pay the tax. No or low income no Income Tax due. What about Social Security and Medicare taxes? We all pay or have paid into that. Do they own a home or pay rent? Yes? Then they pay property tax either directly or through their landlord. Do they buy gas? If so, they pay taxes. Do they buy clothes or other items? They pay taxes. Do they have a phone? They pay taxes. I think you get my drift. We all pay taxes of one kind or another so lets stop talking about the Socialists Freeloaders. Were all in the same boat. If it sinks we all drown. One more tax item. The recent Supreme Court ruling says that the penalty for not getting health insurance is a tax. Some are saying it is a big tax increase on the middle class. It is my understanding that according to the new law, officially called the Affordable Care Act, will require that you indicate on your tax form whether you do or do not have medical insurance. If you dont and you are due a refund then your refund will be reduced by the amount of the penalty. If you are not due a refund you are not assessed the penalty. So if you dont want to get medical insurance and dont want to pay the penalty, make sure you are not due a refund. Lets quit squabbling and work together to provide some form of affordable health care to those who need it. James Merrick OcalaOak Run walkersThis is another opinion on the issue of walkers on the boulevard in Oak Run. I couldnt help putting my two cents in, which is a good approximation of the value of mine and all the others to date. Looks like its shaping up to be a war between the walkers and the anti-walkers. Let me confirm right off that Im a walker, but I can understand the complaints of the anti-walkers. As the writer in todays edition stated, there are nice folks in Oak Run, and there are others. So far, Ive only encountered the nice folks, and that includes the lady who owns the dog that took a bite out of my hand that required 10 stitches to sew up. Oak Run is a closed gate community, a beautiful place to live, and a great place to walk. But if you have long legs, you dont want to be restricted to going round and round in the small section you live in, especially when there are miles of streets available. Unfortunately, to get to those streets, it becomes necessary at times to walk on the boulevard. Now, the best solution for that would be to build sidewalks, but its a lot cheaper to just put up signs restricting pedestrian traffic. So thats what the owners did, so they dont have to pay your insurance claim. There is a common sense approach to this problem, and here I understand the antiwalkers complaint. Ive questioned the intelligence of walkers myself when I see people walking along the boulevard, even when on the proper side, facing traffic, who insist they are entitled to a share of the road. They are not. The new signs tell them so. I think they are ill-advised to contest an automobile for a portion of the pavement.

As Lewis Carroll wrote in Through the Looking Glass, When I use a word, Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, it means just what I choose it to mean neither more nor less. Chief Justice John Robertss opinion holds that the penalty for not complying with the mandate is both a tax and not a tax depending on the question. If the question is whether someone may sue to strike down the mandate, the court says yes, because the penalty is not a tax. Under the Tax Anti-Injunction Act (first passed in 1867 but since updated), one may not ask for an injunction against a tax before it has been enforced. One must wait to be taxed, request a refund from the IRS, and if turned down, then sue the government. In the Obamacare case, the Court denied such an attempt to have the challenge dismissed by declaring the penalty not a tax. But only for purposes of the Tax Anti-Injunction Act. It was another story when the question was whether the mandate is constitutional. The government made two arguments in defense of its mandate. The primary argument was that Congress may require the purchase of insurance under the Commerce Clause. This clause, which empowers Congress To regulate commerce among the several States, has long been interpreted to include even activities that merely affect interstate commerce. Roberts and four other members of the court (Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito) did not buy this argument. The Framers gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it, Roberts wrote. He rebutted in great detail the Obama administrations many arguments that penalizing people for not buying insurance was a way to regulate interstate commerce. Fine. It does seem a stretch to claim that forcing people to engage in commerce (buying insurGUEST COMMENTARY PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE10 Some canine treats for the dog days of summer PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank mals and a willingness to help a lost homeless pet.

Friday, July 6, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Voter purge is an expression which creates a deserved negative impression about legal efforts to identify unqualified voters and remove them from the rolls. Early in his term as Florida governor, Rick Scott stated an intention to identify and remove unqualified voters from the states voting rolls. At the time, at least one prominent newspaper suggested the governors intentions seemed justifiable and defensible. As the presidential election drew closer, however, press opinions turned negative. Are voter qualification reviews in Florida and several other states tinged with political motives? Wed be surprised if they werent. But that isnt the issue. Everyone who pays attention to important news knows that at least seven of the 9/ll hijackers who declared war on the U.S. were illegally registered voters. The non-citizen hijackers found it just as easy to become registered voters as it was to obtain visas, social security cards, and drivers licenses. Those most opposed to voter verification efforts dismiss cases of impersonation, fictitious www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 6, 2012 In case it sneaked up on you, Sunday was July 1, which means in Florida that most of those new laws the Legislature passed took effect. Ive tracked down a few of them, so here goes. The one that most people will notice, and applaud, is the approval of the sales tax holiday for back-to-school items. The holiday is Aug. 3 to Aug. 5, and includes various clothing and school supplies, but not books, that cost less than $75. Its part of an economic development package that includes money for incentives and a corporate tax break. Its designed to help lure businesses to the state. The state has also taken action to try to cut back on auto insurance fraud. Accident reports now have to include information on the driver and all passengers. Also, as of Jan. 1, personal injury protection payments are limited for non-emergency treatment, and if youre a fan of massage therapy or acupuncture, forget it. That will no longer be covered. Insurance rates are supposed to go down, but insurance companies can defend the failure to do so with the state, so dont start spending your savings just yet. Prayers at school events? School boards may now set guidelines for students to give inspirational messages at school events. This is, of course, a law begging for a lawsuit, so any school board that does so is risking a court trip. Still, there are renegade school boards out there, not speaking of anyone specific you understand, so who knows? Other items to keep an eye on: School funding around the state is supposed to increase, but well hold our breath on that one. Its now illegal to tape anyone in a residential dwelling with his or her knowledge. This comes from the Erin Andrews hotel peephole case. Frankly, I thought that already was illegal. One interesting aspect of the law is that its a felony if youre 19, but a misdemeanor if youre 18 or younger. Isnt a crime a crime? Strange! And if youre buying a timeshare, there are new rules to protect you. One new law that didnt quite make it would have banned the government from doing business with companies who have links, even through parent companies, with Cuba. A federal judge in Miami blocked that law from taking effect last week. Im sure there are more, less significant, laws that are going on the books. In most cases, though, if you use common sense, youll be fine. Then again, it was our Legislature that passed these things, so .Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

So the health care act has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and that unleashed fear and anger among many Americans who feel we are moving further and further into socialism. Ironically, the decision came just a few days before the Fourth of July, when we celebrate the freedom of Americans. Many are saying they hope we will still have a free America a few years from now as the July 4 holiday rolls around for our children and grandchildren. One of the scariest analyses came from Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, as well as a long-time practitioner of general internal medicine, who says the reform is likely to do greater harm than good for doctors and patients. One thing that may happen, first of all, is that your doctor might not even be there any more because a high percentage of physicians have said they cannot afford to or simply will not practice under these new regulations, Orient explained. She also said that the groups most at risk of suffering a decline in care are senior citizens, people who tend to be sicker, even young children because the emphasis is on people in their most productive years of life. According to published reports, among the potential negative impacts on treatment, Orient listed longer wait times to see the doctor, limited access to specialists, group visits because doctors dont have time to see patients one-on-one, and diminished freedom of choice for patients. A lot of people think oh goody, all these things are free, but it still comes with a price, Orient said. You will get whatever the system thinks you should have. Orient said the changes would likely be devastating to close doctor-patient relationships. Thats the very worst feature, the destruction of the doctor-patient relationship, she said. It doesnt support compassion or dedication to doing your very best; instead its about checking off boxes. The first big test will come in November. Will enough Americans be upset with this ruling to vote for a Republican president, Senate and House? Or will we be divided still after the ballots are cast? When you go to the polls, remember that one key phrase from above: All things come with a price. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The looming woes of health care act Sales tax holiday among new laws Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Registration of voters is a public trust Hes got to goMy first reaction to the court decision on Obama Care was one of disgust; however it may be the very thing that was needed to get rid of that horrendous plan. Hopefully, the majority of Americans should now be interested enough to examine the details, and unlike Congress, read the bill. Most polls show that roughly 80 percent of us have no idea how many changes will occur that will dramatically increase health costs to every hard working, tax paying citizen. For example, how many are excited about having to pay 3.8 percent tax on the sale of your home beginning in 2013? There is no way the intelligent will want this plan. This has never been about health care, it is about big government takeover, the biggest power grab in our history! This can and will destroy America as we know it unless Romney is elected and he, with a Republican Congress, repeals it. Everyone agrees that we need to make needed changes in our health coverage, but changes can be made that do not lay the burden on taxpayers and those who willingly pay their own way. Those who never pay their own way will obviously love this plan because they love having the other guy pay for them. One woman on TV stated it much better than I can, she said This will allow me to have health insurance without cost to me. She has no idea of the meaning of personal responsibility.

Their mantra is Catch some more bad guys, and then well take you seriously. They dont offer alternatives for catching the frauds One of the most thorough critics has been the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Their perspective is that the problem of unqualified voters is greatly exaggerated, tinged with racial motives, and discouraging to eligible voters. Like other critics, they suggest the states find the unqualified voters first, then make a case for searching the polls. Thats called specious reasoning a fancy word for double-talk. When a federal court rejected a Department of Justice request to block Floridas examination of DOJ citizen lists, DOJ said Florida is working with a list which has critical imperfections which may harm or confuse voters. DOJ had been stonewalling Floridas requests to access a federal data base against which to check the names on the states list. Political motives by DOJ? The judge told the feds if they wanted honest elections, they should cooperate with the state. The most interesting aspect of the federal-state conflict is that federal law requires states to remove the names of ineligible voters from official lists, an upshot of the 2000 election recount fiasco in Florida. The Justice Department says they think thats a good idea, if the states can show widespread abuse first. More double-talk. The political nonsense between DOJ and the states may have a good effect nonetheless. Publicity focused on voter registrations might just discourage those who would commit a crime by voting illegally, whether they are few or many. As for suggestions that a purge intimidates qualified voters, we think not. Citizens who make the effort to become qualified voters, and gladly suffer any inconveniences, will turn out to vote come hell or high water. Its called exercising a primary right of citizenship. among us, but past experience shows that many of them dont have it because they arent willing to pay for it! Who wouldnt rather buy that new car, flat screen TV, or other luxury item with that money? This is true now and was 40 years ago, I personally heard that story many times. One obvious fact: If Obama is re-elected, we will have Obama Care, so examine it carefully before voting. Obama also wants illegals to have an easy path (30 years old, been here five years) to citizenPLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 JiggleMan (Banks Helfrich) from Orlando came to the Freeedom Public Library June 27 to entertain youngsters and anyone else wanting a good afternoon laugh. JiggleMan jiggled his way through a delightful performance that really got the full library audience rolling in laughter. He jiggled for what seemed forever as he did his ball tricks, passed out balloons, and did tricks with a wannabe hair dryer. JiggleMan said he has lots of friends on Facebook so people can leave comments for him about his wonderful smile making tricks. His parting comments were to ask the audience to check out books before they left, which made the library staff happy. JiggleMan pays a visit to Freedom Public Library PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELThe library was filled to capacity by children of all ages including several from the Capstone Childcare Academy, who came an hour early to get front row seats on the floor. JiggleMan is putting large rings on his head as part of his tricks. The rings also were changed into squares as part of the trick. Library employees Heather Ogilvie, Branch Supervisor, and Wolly Barrett, Librarian II are telling the audience about JiggleMan just before he started his tricks.

A real American is the one who can clutch his five-dollar bill and say, in God we trust. If it is good for our money, it is good for our life. If only the American people, the real people of America, would wake up and see what our politicians are doing, perhaps they would do what our early founders did. In celebrating another Fourth of July, my thought is simply, why not just be an American. A real American also embraces what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Is that the sound of a drumbeat I hear off in the distance?Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Whatever your political leanings may be, it is clear that throughout American history, American presidents have made important decisions concerning their actions and appointments of Jews to the American government. Having just celebrated our independence on July 4, it seems only fitting to explore some of these presidential decisions and how they affected the lives of American Jews. George Washington was the first president to write letters to several synagogues including the Touro Synagogue of Rhode Island and Mikveh Israel of Savannah. These letters assured the Jews living in the new country that the United States did not tolerate bigotry and that religious freedom was an American right. Thomas Jefferson was the first president to appoint a Jew to a federal post. In 1801, Reuben Etting of Baltimore was named a U. S. marshal for Maryland. Mordecai M. Noah was appointed by James Madison to a diplomatic post, the first Jew to be so honored. He served as ambassador to Tunis from 1813-16. Martin Van Buren was the first president to intercede on behalf of Jewish Americans abroad. In 1840, he instructed the U.S. consul in Egypt to protect the Jews of Damascus who had been under attack for a false anti-Semitic blood libel. Only in America does a Quaker who converts to Judaism become a U.S. consul to Palestine. This is what John Tyler did in 1844 when he appointed Warder Cresson. Washington Hebrew Congregation, the first synagogue in the District, has Franklin Pierces name on its charter, because he signed an Act of Congress 1857 that amended the law so that the synagogue could become incorporated. Abraham Lincoln was the first president to appoint Jewish chaplains to the military. He also rescinded the only anti-Semitic government decree when General Grant issued his infamous Order No. 11 expelling Jews from Union territory in Tennessee. Grant claimed his subordinate issued the decree. During his administration, he was the first president to attend a synagogue service while in office. He and his whole cabinet attended the dedication of Adas Israel in Washington, D.C. in 1874. Rutherford B. Hayes is noted for two important firsts. He appointed Benjamin Peixotto ConsulGeneral to Romania to help fight anti-Semitism. He also upheld a Jewish womans right to observe Shabbat by ensuring her employment with the Department of the Interior after she was denied the position for refusing to work on Saturday. Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to appoint a Jew to his cabinet. The appointment was for Oscar Strauss who was named Secretary of Commerce and Labor. Teddy also was the first president to contribute to a Jewish cause with his own private funds. From the monies he received as a Nobel Peace recipient in 1919 for settling the Russo-Japanese War, Roosevelt contributed to the National Jewish Welfare Board. In 1912, William Howard Taft became the first president to attend a seder. This was at the home of Jewish Welfare Board president, Colonel Henry Cutler. Looks like both presidents ate matza! Woodrow Wilson was the first president to appoint a Jew to the Supreme Court. Despite pressure to withdraw the nomination, Wilson went ahead and appointed Louis Brandeis (namesake for the university). Other presidents followed by also naming Jews in the ensuing years. Wilson also was the first to publically endorse a national Jewish philanthropic campaign. The United Jewish Relief Campaign, which was raising funds for the European War effort, received Wilsons support in a letter to Jacob Schiff in 1917. Early support for the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine came from Warren Harding when he signed a Joint Congressional Resolution in support of the Balfour Declaration, the document issued by Great Britain, which stated favor for an establishment of a Jewish national homeland. This occurred in 1922. Calvin Coolidge, silent Cal, was the first president to help dedicate a Jewish community center and not a house of worship. In 1925, he dedicated the Washington, D.C. Jewish community center. FDRs administration still falls into the controversy category even today. There is proof that this president knew of the Nazis diabolical plans to annihilate the Jews of Europe and could have taken steps to bomb the tracks leading to the concentration camps. He also could have increased the refugee quota, which might have saved more lives. He did, however, lead the Allies against the Nazis and is remembered for the military campaigns, which ultimately ended World War II. In spite of this all, there are many who see Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a force against tyranny. He was the first president to be given a Torah as a gift, one that had been rescued from a burning Czech synagogue, another, a miniature one from Young Israel. Harry Truman, the president who quipped at a KKK meeting that the people there were so stupid that they bought their sheets from a Jewish merchant, was the first head of state to publically announce recognition of the new State of Israel just 11 minutes after independence was declared. He also was the first to receive an Israeli president, Chaim Weizman and ambassador, Eliahu Elat, in 1948. Truman was also instrumental in securing millions in loans and grants to help the fledgling state with mass immigration during 1951-52. As the United States moved further into the 1950s, the involvement of Jews in the government increased and their presence was more apparent. These years bringing us up to the present are subject for my next column.Judi is a former teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Sun Valley with her husband, Phil.

What a grand history we have had. I know some people are ashamed of our history and so we have revisionists rewriting American history. Nevertheless, I certainly want to celebrate the real America. My wife and I were relaxing after a scrumptious supper and were watching a little bit of TV. I was half dozing, as is usually my condition after such a supper, when my wife startled me with a question. It was a news program on television updating us with the latest political scratch-talk. If it were not for politics, the airwaves would be silent. Oh, for those wonderful sounds of silence. Personally, I would be glad to double my tax rate if in doing so we could put to silence all this political-scratch-talk. I call it scratch-talk because whoever is talking is trying to scratch somebodys back even if it is just their own. I guess we have a lot of itchy backs in this country. Thankfully, we have an endless supply of backscratching politicians. It does not matter which way the wind is blowing; each political party says it is blowing in their direction. I guess you have to go eight years to Harvard and have a student loan debt of $120,000 to understand how that works. If you do not mind, I just do not want to know how it works. With the politicians unable to create work in our country for common Americans, the real Americans, they sure know how to work a situation, usually to their advantage. If they could put all of this to work for the good of the ordinary American, I would feel happier about paying my taxes. As it is, I pay my taxes but not happily. Back to my wifes question. Who are, she said very carefully, the real Americans in this country? Then she paused for a moment and followed it with this question, Who does America really belong to? Well, those two questions got me thinking. Who are the real Americans? Are they Republicans, Democrats or Independents? I know there is a bunch of other miscellaneous political parties but I cannot think of them right now. Which one is the American Party? If I do not like any political party, where does that leave me? I am all for parties, but the whole idea of a party is for people to have fun. I do not see any political party where I could have fun. The strange thing today is, if I do not belong to some political party I am not able to vote in this country. Moreover, if I do vote, who in the world do I vote for? My wife and I got to talking about this and I, for once in my life, posed a question. How would you describe the average American? Is the average American black, white, yellow, red or a mixture of colors? Do you define an American by the color of his or her skin? What about gender? Is the average American male or female? Then there is age. How old is the average American? We bounced these questions around for a long time and did not come up with any good answers. Then there was silence. I come back to one thought; why cant we just be Americans. Why do we have to have all the emphasis on variations, colors, temperaments and the people we elect to office who cannot tie their own shoes without conducting some poll? Why cant we send ordinary, common sense Americans to Washington, D.C., who understands the American life? Most of the politicians, if not all, live in a bubble and cannot relate to the average American in this country. I challenge these politicians to act like, live like common, everyday, normal Americans. We normal Americans have to live on a budget. If I do not have enough money, I have come to the end of my buying spree. I think this concept ought to be copyrighted and sent to Washington, D.C. It is a new concept. It will need somebody to interpret it to those who are living in that venomous circle that we call the capital of the United States. I would recommend a first grader. It would be refreshing to have somebody in Congress or the Senate who had common sense. I guess Will Rogers was right when he said the problem with common sense is it is no longer common. A real American is one who is committed to the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A real American is one who embraces the red, white Why cant we all just be Americans? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE6 on June 27 and 29. Four man teams competed for two days, with the cumulative score for the two days used to determine the winners. The format was the usual three best net. Thankfully Debby had passed through and the course was in good shape for the contest. We had 45 players for the event. The competition was fierce and the scores were close. The winning team with a score of 399 was Bruce Stover, John ONeill, Dick Feltenberger, and Paul Valois. Second with a score of 400 were Bob Salberg, Jim Spran, John DeSalvo, and Duke Slayton. Third with a score of 401 were Charlie Elder, John Wargo, Bill Start, and Wayne Feeman. After the last day of play lunch was served to the players by Royal Oaks and was excellent as usual. Thanks for a job well done. The tournament was chaired by Dick Blackburn, who was assisted in the scoring by Bruce Stover, Bill Ellin, and our pro Lori Wilkes. This was the last tournament until fall, so its back to normal golf. Enjoy the course, and dont stay out in the sun too long! ORWGAHere is the list of winners of the June 21 Low Net Tournament.

Progress Energy employees carry company identification badges with photographs. But because identification badges, vehicle signs and clothing can be fabricated to look authentic, none of these is sufficient to verify a persons identity. Other than in emergencies or safetyrelated issues, there are almost no instances when a representative of Progress Energy would come to a customers home unannounced and ask to enter to perform work or provide a service. Any homeowner in doubt about the identity of someone claiming to be a Progress Energy employee should keep the door closed and locked and call Progress Energys customer service center 1-800-700-8744 in Florida to confirm the employees identity and need for entry. Customers who are contacted by phone, email, through social media or through other channels can verify an individuals affiliation with Progress Energy by calling the same number.

Ocala Civic Theatre announces auditions for Best Little Whorehouse in Texas Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Ayoung mother cat chose Cherrywood to have her first litter. Just a baby herself, she had 5 beautiful kittens four black and white males and one tabby female. SPCA received a call from a resident advising there were kittens in her bushes. Within three days the mother and her five kids were trapped and went into foster care. Mama was spayed through the Trap Neuter Release program operated by Sheltering Hands and the family was taken in by Arlene Cole, a SPCA foster parent. The kittens are now 3 months old, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested and ready for their permanent homes. The newest addition to our cat family is only seven weeks old and was found in a yard in OTOW. Tinkerbell is a feisty tabby female and ready to take on the world. She is available on a preadopt basis. To meet and adopt Tinkerbell or the Cherrywood crew, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. WARNING!! They are already spoiled and love home cooked chicken and fish. If you do not want to tackle the energy of a kitten, we have several other cats that need forever homes: two teenage cats who are seven months old, a mature four year old, and a senior cat who is about eight years old. They have been staying at foster mom Arlenes but would much prefer to be only cats in their own loving household. Pictures of all these kitties have been posted at area grocery stores and veterinarian offices, or call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to see the cats in person. Maybe you like cats but are not ready to commit to bringing one permanently into your home. Fostering would be a perfect way to enjoy the company of a cat while helping him or her find a home. Foster parents are desperately needed by all the rescue organizations. The SPCA is especially in need of volunteer fosters because we dont have a shelter and cant help if we dont have a foster home available. You do not need to be a member of the SPCA to volunteer, just a love of aniKittens found in Cherrywood need home PAWS AND CLAWS M DMaria Devine These kittens were found in Cherrywood.

There was one outdoor event where the dunking tank was put. The cotton candy machine malfunctioned but there was lots of popcorn being made as well as a toilet paper roll throw, and throwing a small ball into holes. A clown group from Summerfield painted faces and blew up long thin balloons which they twisted into various shapes and gave to residents and families. The biggest hit was a pie eating contest where some family members had whipped cream covered pies in front of them. On signal they were to see who could eat a pie the fastest without using utensils. Their faces were a mess at the finish but they enjoyed making the mess. (Photos by Mike Roppel) Showing off their new balloon hats are, from left, Arlene Potocnik, Joanne Armour, and Rae Lund. Premade ice cream sundaes of different flavors and a choice of toppings were also available for residents and families at the carnival. This young fellow had his mouth open ready to eat as he was served his sundae.

LATE NEWS Progress Energy warns about utility bill scamProgress Energy is urging customers be on alert for a new utility bill payment scam affecting customers across the country. Scammers claim that President Obama will pay customers utility bills through a new federal program. Progress Energy has received reports of customers who have been contacted about this scam in its Carolinas and Florida service territories. According to the Better Business Bureau, customers have been contacted in person and through fliers, social media and text messages with claims that President Obama is providing credits or applying payments to utility bills. To receive the money, scammers claim they need the customers Social Security and bank routing numbers. In return, customers are given a false bank routing number that will supposedly pay their utility bills. In reality, there is no money, and customers believe they have paid their bills when in fact they have not. Progress Energy does not contact customers to obtain personally identifiable information. In addition, the company encourages customers and others not to open their door for utility workers INDEX Cherrywood......................16 Judis Journal.......................6 Marion Landing................13 Oak Run...............................19 Obituary................................3 Opinion`................................8 Out to Pastor........................5 Paws and Claws`.................3 Pun Alley.............................20 Puzzles.................................23CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, JULY 6, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 6 www.smcitizen.com28~ Friday, July 6, 2012 www.smcitizen.com PHOTO BY JIM CLARKTrash bins sit outside the Ocala Social Security office, which was damaged by floods from Tropical Storm Debby.
