BRIEFS The Skills Gap Forums postponed last month due to threat of a tropical storm will now take place July 16. Workforce Connection and its economic development and education partners are holding the forums to identify the difference between the critical skills needed on the job and those possessed by applicants. The feedback will be used to develop local and regional strategies and curricula to help close the gaps. The forums, conducted by the Chicago-based firm of Thomas P Miller and Associates, were scheduled to take place last month in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties but several had to be rescheduled when Tropical Storm Debby threatened the area. Employers and/or their representatives are invited to take part in any or all of the industry sector forums: Monday, July 16 at the College of Central Floridas Klein Conference Center, 3001 S.W. College Road: Information Technology 1:30 p.m. Business and Financial Services 3:30 p.m. Those interested in participating are asked to call 352-873-7939, ext. 2230 or 800-746-9950, ext. 2230.

Skills Gap Forum postponed by Debby set for next week At an open house on July 2, Reginald E. Landers, Jr., chairman of the Democratic Party of Marion County, welcomed a steady stream of visitors to the partys new headquarters at 601 S.W. First Ave. The stand-alone brick building is almost directly across the street from Ocalas main post office about five blocks southwest of the Ocala Town Square. The donkey kicking up its heels on the wonderful sign outside designed by our talented and tireless events coordinator Sally Smith shows how fired up and ready to go we are as we work to keep President Obama in the White House and secure the election as well of our excellent area candidates, Landers said at a meeting of the Democratic Executive Committee following the open house at which he also saluted the outstanding contributions of Joyce Blake, John Hickey, John Moxley and Gary Smith in making the move a reality. Candidates present included Frank Bruno, who is running for Florida State Senate, Judge Cochran, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections, and Woody Clymer, non-partisan candidate for school board. Keith Ferguson, field director of the Obama for America campaign, and Benjamin Cuebas, head of the Young Democrats, delighted the audience with their enthusiasm but no one made a more fervent call to action than Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committeewoman and leader of Marion Countys Democratic Coordinated Campaign. Joyce repeatedly exhorted attendees to call her directly at 690-1746 in order to volunteer for voter registration and precinct and vote building training.

BY JIM CLARK Editor A planned debate among County Commission District 5 candidates fizzled Monday when two of the four candidates did not attend and a third had to leave early at the monthly State Road 200 Coalition meeting. Pat Gabriel, who is president of the Coalition, was the only District 5 candidate to speak at the event. Francine Johannesen, candidate, was there for the beginning of the meeting, but had to leave because of another commitment. Earl Arnett and Butch Verrando, other District 5 hopefuls, did not attend. One candidate who had gotten into the political arena late and had not taken part earlier this summer was Bobby Dobkowski, who is running for School Board District 2. Known also as Bobby Dee because of a talk radio show he conducted, he told the group that he was active in Queen of Peace Church and was committed to the 200 area. I dont think the school system is good enough for the students in Marion County, he told the group. He said the administration is top heavy, and pushed for what he called common sense discipline. He faced questioning because he homeschools his children, but again cited the fact that he doesnt think the school system as currently operating is good enough. He noted that if he is elected to the School Board, he will be the only member with school-age children. Dobkowskis opponent, Carol Ely, spoke to the Coalition earlier this summer, but was unopposed at the time. She cites her 35 years as an educator, including 13 years as a teacher, five years as a curriculum coordinator, five years as an assistant principal and 14 years as a principal. Her time in administration was at Emerald Shores, Belleview and Shady Hill elementary Candidates pay visit to Coalition PLEASESEECOALITION PAGE3 000BUW E 1918 SW 17th St. AutoMaxOcala.com (see sales person for details) Pictures for illustation purposes only.

BY MELINDA MYERS Dont let summer stressors ruin your landscapes good looks. Instead give your plants natural defenses a boost and keep both vegetable gardens producing and flowers blooming. Busy summer schedules can lead to plant neglect and less-than-picture-perfect gardens. When you team this with summer heat and drought that can lead to wilting, brown leaves, and poor growth, and add insects and diseases that can further weaken and damage plants, gardens can really suffer. An exciting new organic tool for gardeners is now available to help. Plant strengtheners, like JAZ sprays, help boost plants natural defenses so they are better able to deal with environmental stress, neglect, as well as insects and disease attacks. Scientists found that when plants experienced stress from drought, temperature extremes, insects or diseases they produced certain molecules that activated their natural defenses. They isolated these molecules, applied them to other plants, and found that the treated plants were better able to tolerate stress. Plant strengtheners contain such molecules that increase natural defenses in plants. One such family of molecules is the jasmonates, originally identified in the jasmine plant, that increases hundreds of natural defense molecules in treated plants. Some of the natural defenses make the plants more resistant to pathogens and others help reduce damage from drought, heat and salt. While proper care can help increase a plants natural defenses, plant strengtheners give them an extra boost to help plants thrive even during periods of environmental stress. These organic products act like vitamins or immunizations, helping plants deal with extreme and often unpredictable weather, pest, and disease challenges. You can even keep healthy plants performing their best by proactively using a plant strengthener. By doing so, youll boost a plants immune system before environmental stresses hit and ultimately help it thrive as it faces serious challenges throughout the remainder of the season. Its a great way to protect plants before they become threatened. Make sure to give your plants proper care throughout their lifetime. Water thoroughly and as needed. Then mulch the soil surrounding your plants with shredded leaves, evergreen needles, or other organic materials. These conserve moisture, keep roots cool and moist, suppress weeds, and improve the soil as they break down. And, if your plants experience the same problems each year, it is time to make a change. Move stressed plants to more suitable growing conditions. Match the plant to the light, soil, and moisture it prefers. Replace diseased plants with resistant varieties and provide proper care. By taking these steps and investing a bit of time and energy youll be sure to create a beautiful, healthy and productive landscape.

A recent wave of missing seniors has families across the nation on alert for elderly loved ones who are more mobile and active in warm weather and get separated, disoriented or in the worst case, lost and cant find their way home. This is especially worrisome in the summer heat when seniors can become quickly dehydrated. The warm and bright summer days can be alluring and dangerous for the elderly and thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home care companies for seniors, with caregivers in our area, has launched the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan. Its a powerful checklist for families to follow if their elderly loved one gets separated or lost. Every day we care for thousands of elderly people and as the weather heats up we see a huge rise in the number of seniors getting separated, disoriented or even downright lost, says Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers, an in-home senior care company with highly trained caregivers specializing in dementia and Alzheimers care. Thats why we started the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan to make sure seniors have a way to get out of a jam and to give families piece of mind. If families dont live nearby, we suggest they hire a caregiver to implement this action plan to help watch over their elderly loved one. How Seniors Get LostDriving and forgetting directions or they cant find their destination. They make it to their destination but then cant find their car in the parking lot. Plan to meet at a familiar place and then cant find it. Go with family members and friends to a place and then get separated and/or lost. Wander or drive away from home and get completely lost this is especially a problem with the elderly with dementia and/or Alzheimers. Of the 5 million people who suffer from Alzheimers, 60 percent of them will wander and become lost at some point during the disease. And sadly, of those who are lost for more than 72 hours, 80 percent never make it home. Senior Lost and Found Action Plan Give your senior a Smart phone and create an If Im Lost folder on the home screen in the folder, include the seniors family and caregiver numbers, 911, a cab company phone number, and the seniors home address. Install a GPS tracking system on the seniors cell phone make sure they have one for their car and they know how to use it. Make a plastic laminate card with all pertinent information place this in your seniors wallet and attach it to their car visor. Have your senior wear an ID bracelet they come in very fashionable designs. For Seniors With Dementia and AlzheimersConsider disguising the doors in your home painting or hanging posters on the inside of doors to disguise them as bookshelves or other furniture can often deter a senior from attempting to walk out. Install door chimes on all entry doors this alerts those at home whenever a door is opened. This comes in handy especially in a two level home. Security systems also offer this type of alarm. Alert your local authorities of the RISK of wandering many local police stations maintain an Alzheimers and dementia patient registry. Caregivers provide personal information that would be critical in a search and rescue effort, such as name, height, weight, etc Caregivers should keep a list of previous homes, occupations this is helpful if authorities need to search for a senior. Elderly with Alzheimers tend to recall former homes, occupations and other milestones as though they are present day. Some seniors with dementia are wandering in attempt to return to their roots. Utilize personal tracking devices consider buying GPS devices that seniors can wear around their ankles, wrists or even in their shoes. Committeeman who earlier hosted a fundraiser for Frank Bruno, are among those attending the national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, the first week in September. Bruce Seaman of Awake Marion and Nancy Noonan of Marions United for Public Education implored everyone not to ignore the Aug. 14 primary because the two initiatives concerning the school system need our support in order to give our teachers and our students the resources they need. Herman H. Brown, vice chairman of the newly resurrected Oak Run Democratic Club, announced that the group will meet at the Orchid Club at 7 p.m. July 19, and Sally said that tickets for the annual dinner at the Hilton Sept. 9 are now available. In a moving ceremony, Ed Mottl, husband of the late Georgette Mottl, former DEC chairman who died last February, was presented with a personal letter of condolence from Vice President Joe Biden and an autographed photo of Georgette with Mr. Biden in Washington, D.C. This surprise was arranged by Nora Travieso. Landers, 42 year old Dean of Students at Reddick-Collier Elementary School, concluded that with the opening of our more modern and accessible site, we intend to become a resource for everyone who is committed to working for the common good. This includes the over 80,000 registered Democrats as well as those among the 40,000 independents in this county who seek to build an informed and prosperous community which offers equal opportunity for everyone while respecting and rejoicing in our cultural political and religious diversity, Call 352-402-9494, email info@mariondems.org or visit www.mariondems.org, or contact Joyce Blake at 352-690-1746.

She has two daughters who graduated from the Marion County School System, one is a nurse and the other a dentist. She pledges to bring professionalism back to the School Board meetings. In the County Commission races, incumbent Mike Amsden and challenger Jeff Gold spoke. Amsden told the audience that he has spent 3 years listening to you, serving you. He also spoke of the need to work together, noting that it takes three votes to pass anything. If you dont have two more votes, you cant accomplish anything. Gold, who has worked with both the Sheriffs Office and the Fire Department, said, Im doing this to try to help the community. He said he understands the working of the budget, and there are going to have to be intelligent cuts. Incumbent Stan McClain faces a challenge in the primary from David Moore, but Moore did not attend the meeting. McClain told the crowd that it was a real honor to serve all of you. He says he tries to make sure the county is fiscally responsible. Further, he says that some decisions do not sit well with some folks, but theyre good for the taxpayers. He pointed to the energy savings and to the long-term solution for solid waste that has been accomplished. All candidates, in response to a question, said they were in favor of the prayer continuing before the meetings. Amsden said he was willing to fight for it, but not with the taxpayers money. Its up to the churches, the sleeping giants. Theyll have our backs. The residency issue, which was raised several weeks ago, came up as Gabriel spoke. She said she would move from her current Preserve home, which is not in District 5 because of new maps, possibly to the On Top of the World, which is in that district. We will not leave the 200 Corridor, she said emphatically, saying she has been there for 16 years. She also spoke of her work as a volunteer with the emergency medical task force and parks and fire advisory boards. I want to keep working for the citizens of Marion County. We need balance on the County Commission. She added about the financial situation, Were going to have to be very streamlined.

How to protect wandering seniors Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Florida KidCare is enrolling families every day and United Way of Marion County has joined a statewide effort to help more uninsured children receive health care at a price their families can afford through Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctors visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. Were in contact with these families regularly and it makes sense to use these opportunities to share information about Florida KidCare and encourage families to complete the application for this quality healthcare program. Since it began in 1998, Florida KidCare has offered working families access to high-quality doctors and preventative care for their children at an affordable cost. Florida KidCare currently serves nearly 1.4 million children. For more information call Chris Cotter at 352-732-9696. United Way urges families with uninsured children to apply for Florida KidCare benefits Marion County is definitely on the map when it comes to ways to engage our youngest citizens.

I n June credit ratings of 15 of the worlds largest banks were lowered because their future profitability and growth are questionable. Here at Pun Alley we hope you have some interest in the humor and its not questionable. Ah so! The credit ratings reduction has really hit Japan. Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal. Perfect balanceAfter the tightrope walker completed his hazardous walk a fan asked him, I want to be a tightrope walker. What equipment do I need? The tightrope walker replied, Very flexible shoes, two towers, a wire, a pole and a bank book. I understand the shoes, towers, wire and pole, but whats the bank book for? inquired the man. To check your balance, of course. SafetyAn out-of-work man decided to rob a bank. Borrowing a friends van he drove to a small county bank late one dark moonless night and picked the lock on the rear door of the bank without difficulty, but the alarm sounded. He quickly loaded the banks small safe onto a furniture dolly he had brought along and loaded it into the van. He drove to his friends house and explained his problem. He asked if, in exchange for some of the loot, he might store the safe in the garage for a few days. The friend assured him: You can rest assured, your safe is secret with me. Two bitsA record number of bank failures have left America with a nationwide shortage of flimsy toaster ovens, cheap pocket calculators, and ugly dinnerware. Old bankers never die; they just lose interest. Some banks charge incredibly high interest rates. You can tell those because the TV camera that takes pictures of robbers is aimed at the loan officer. One dumb guy thinks a pole vault is a bank safe in Warsaw. Banking is just like our government a system of checks and balances. If you want to cash a check, you have to have a balance. A musician robbed the bank and made off with the lute. I went to the bank the other day. I asked the banker to check my balance, so he pushed me. I hear youre really going after the guy who robbed the bank yesterday. You bet. If he wanted to steal, why didnt he work his way up in the bank like I did. Float a loan John went to his bank to refinance a loan on his yacht. Making small talk with the loan officer, he told her that she was the main reason he came to that branch. Not even looking up from her paperwork, the loan officer responded, You dont fool me, sailor. Ill bet you have a woman in every bank.Missing A woman went into the small bank and noticed there was a new face behind the window. Has the teller gone away to take a rest? she inquired. No, replied the new man, hes gone away to avoid it. No competition Not having a job, Don bought a hotdog cart and set it up in a prime spot on a busy downtown corner, right near a large bank. One day his friend Jim approached and asked if he would lend him some money. Don refused. But why? asked Jim. Everyone knows youre doing well and Im not asking for much. Well, Jim, in order to get this spot, I had to sign a non-competition agreement with that bank over there. According to the terms of the agreement, they dont sell hot dogs and I dont lend money.Silver? A woman went to the bank to arrange for a loan. Im sorry, maam, the teller told her, but the loan arranger is out to lunch. Thats OK, said the woman. Can I speak to Tonto then?

Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Community calendar More on Page 7 BY TONY YOUNG To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game but spending quality time outdoors with friends and family. One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. Thats why the FWC created its SpecialOpportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the states best public dove fields. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds each. There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields (Caravelle Ranch has six), and all hunts are from noon until sunset and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 6 and ending Jan. 5. Last year, 1,421 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants last year took an average of nearly six birds per hunter, per day, harvesting 601 birds! North Newberry PSGHA, in Alachua County, has 15 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field produced 135 doves for nearly a two-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Another field, Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County, has a 200-acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 73 doves were harvested there. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58 acres. Hunters there last season took 107 doves. Frog Pond North PSGHA in MiamiDade County has been a top producer in past years, and 201 birds were taken there last season, for nearly a two-birds-perhunter, per-day average. Fifteen Dove Club permits are available to hunt its 50 acres. The remaining special-opportunity dove field is Koon Farm in Lafayette County. There will be 13 Dove Club permits available to hunt on its 40 acres. Hunters took 304 birds there last season for nearly a five-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/License and clicking on Limited Entry/Quota Hunts, you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet (with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in at any county tax collectors office, license agent or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field. If you are successful in getting drawn, you must pick up and pay for your Dove Club permit at any of the same places mentioned above by July 31. Check for drawing results in mid-July at MyFWC.com/License, again by clicking Limited Entry/Quota Hunts. Any applicant who provides an email address will be notified by the FWC by email if drawn. Brochures on each of these areas are available online at MyFWC.com/Dove. Also at that Web address, beginning in late September, hunters will be able to find the most up-to-date information on these six special-opportunity dove fields, as well as Floridas other public dove fields. The website is updated every Thursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and field conditions. So if youd like to join the FWCs Dove Club, you need to try to do so in July. Remember to introduce someone new to hunting when you can. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and well see you in the woods! "Outta' the Woods" is a column highlighting the latest hunting opportunities in Florida. Written by Tony Young, Media Relations Coordinator for the Division of Hunting and Game Management, the column provides valuable information to novice hunters and those new to hunting Florida.

This will not be the youth version of The Tempest, but instead will be the original Shakespeare (though abridged), with a running time of about 90 minutes. The cast of 20 will consist of students age 10 and older. Jackie Osterman, director of education, chose to incorporate Shakespeare into the youth curriculum because she wanted to teach students the importance of the classics and their relevance to modern life. I think every theatre student needs to be exposed to everything from classical to contemporary theatre, Osterman said. I heard kids saying, We cant do Shakespeare or Its boring. Shakespeare is exciting and interesting. The stories are fantastic. There isnt a sitcom today that doesnt owe a plot element to Shakespeare. Jones, having seen the youth production of Robin Hood this spring, felt that The Tempest would be a good match for Ocala Civic Theatre students. His hunch seems to be correct so far; class enrollment is already full. Set on a mythical island, The Tempests cast of characters includes Prospero the magician, his daughter Miranda, the mischievous spirit Ariel, and the villainous Caliban. It is an epic tale of adventure, full of witches, monsters, kings, goddesses, jesters, jealous brothers, romance, treachery, royal weddings, sea nymphs, enchanted trees, and magic spells. If Harry Potter and Shakespeare met, this is what you would have, said Osterman. Like the Harry Potter books, The Tempest has a darker side. This is a play about love, bitterness, regret, and time lost, Jones said. Prospero has shielded his daughter Miranda from the outside world her entire life because he knows that all the magic in the world cant protect his daughter from the cruelty of humanity. Jones envisions a sixteenth-century Caribbean or New World/Spanish colonial look for the minimalist set, which will rely heavily on lighting and sound effects to create the plays magical atmosphere. Costumes will be a mix of traditional and contemporary, and the set will be a non-literal interpretation of the iconic storm and shipwreck which brings several characters to the island. The otherworldly mood will be evoked by thunder and colorful lights, in rich hues of blue, green, gold, red, and orange. Performances of The Tempest will be Friday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are $10 for adults, $6 for students, and $5 for Marion Players. For more information, call the box office at 352-236-2274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com. Ocala Civic Theatre is at 4337 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (East State Road 40) in the Appleton Cultural Center. The theatre produces more than 12 fully staged, professional-quality live performances each season and also hosts touring companies. The Ocala Civic Theatre is volunteer-based and is one of the largest community theatres in the state, serving more than 70,000 Marion, Citrus and Lake County residents each season. Civic Theatre to present youth production of The Tempest A FT ER W ARDS B y R osamund L upton In Afterwards British author Lupton transports readers to another world thats part real and part supernatural. Grace, the comatose narrator, tells the story of a catastrophic fire at her 8-year-old son Adams school. It is sports day and everyone is thought to be outside. However, thats not the case because Graces 17-year-old daughter Jenny is inside acting as school nurse for the day. Without thinking Grace rushes to her aid. The first few chapters are confusing until we realize the conversation she seems to be having with her husband is unheard by him. Grace can only communicate with her daughter who is also in a coma. But thats not for trying. She screams at doctors and her sister-in-law Sarah, a police officer, whos trying to piece together the puzzle of how the fire started. As Grace watches, police take one wrong turn after another. Shes desperate to tell them what she knows that the fire was no accident and that the target was Jenny. Then the worst news of all reaches her. Her daughters heart is failing. Unless she receives a transplant she has only weeks to live. After years of marriage Grace can easily read her husbands face: As soon as I see your face, I know that no heart has been found for her. I go close to you and you tell me that theres time. Its still going to be all right. Not to be defeatist! She will get better. So in this novel thriller meets family drama. There are plenty of red herrings to keep you engaged trying to figure out who among a bevy of characters is the sinister arsonist. And the message seems clear. People and situations are not always the way they appear. The ending is meant to be a surprise but is actually fairly predictable. For many this book will fall outside their comfort reading zone. But if youre looking for an entirely different reading experience, this might be your cup of tea.

Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com E veryone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting reelected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlewww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 13, 2012 T riskaidekaphobia. Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of todays date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (A-rod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though.

S o for a few weeks, the many Social Security recipients in the area will have to do without a local office. It seems that Tropical Storm Debby flooded out the building just south of the Square in Ocala and it had to be shut down. But thats not the issue. The question is why Social Security didnt have a Plan B in operation to keep local services, pardon the pun, flowing. The Social Security office is moving into a new building on East Silver Springs Boulevard at about the 1000 block. Construction has been under way for several months, and officials said the building should be ready next month. You can see the progress in an accompanying photo. But what if a new building wasnt already under construction? What would the folks at Social Security have done? Continue sending people to Gainesville and Leesburg? Government people say that most Social Security services can be done online, that there is no need for many people to go to the office. But just go into the office on any weekday and youll find a full waiting room of people, many of them elderly or disabled, waiting to talk to a representative. Arent Social Security officials aware that many people who receive their services dont have access to a computer, or have only limited knowledge of the operation of the Internet? While the government was a little unlucky with the timing of the shutdown, just a couple of months before the new building was ready, it was indeed fortunate that the new building is almost ready. This time, people should be told what will happen if an emergency strikes. The thousands of recipients in the Ocala area deserve to know that officials care enough to keep the services coming. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Social Security: No plan B? Triskaidekaphobia, Parskevidekatriaphobia Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Supreme Court has spoken! Whats next? Who is Jackie Porter?It seems a day cant go by without someone condemning her for being a candidate for Marion County superintendent of schools. Many have the opinion that no one could possibly handle the responsibilities of that job without having a college degree or better. While I have the utmost respect for anyone who holds such degrees, they dont mean the person is qualified for any particular position, especially one of leadership/management. On the flip side, not having one doesnt mean the person isnt qualified. I prefer to look at qualifications based on a broad range of abilities and experience along with a very close look at who they are as individuals. This means what they stand for, what guides their decisions and what visions they have for our future. In other words, just who they really are. Her stated number one goal is to improve our dismal record of being in 44th place of the 67 counties. She sees us in the top 20! This low rating causes me to think that what we have been doing in our schools is not working out very well. With this in mind, maybe its time to have someone making important decisions that has the ability to think outside the box Some minimize her business experience in managing a successful business for some 20 years. This in itself is an amazing accomplishment! Anyone who has ever served in a management position knows excellent leadership and fiscal skills are necessary to accomplish this feat. Small business owners have always been the strength of our economy, providing the majority of jobs in our private sector. To be successful they must have business and people skills. I have the privilege of knowing Jackie personally and have always been impressed with her and her value system. Her virtues are many: honesty, love of God, loyalty, dedication to excellence, high character, self discipline, and love of our country.

When he was discharged, Al and Pia moved to Maryland, where Al was from originally. He took a position with Western Union in their aerospace communications division and Pia found work with the Bank of America. After their retirement, Pia and Al moved to Cape Coral, Florida, where Pia took work with Bank of America again. For economic reasons, they decided to move and found out about Cherrywood from friends. That was in 2001 and they loved this community then and Pia still loves it now. A couple of years ago, after 53 years of marriage, Al passed away. It was at that time that Pia realized how close a community could be. Her eyes tear up when she speaks of the kindness of friends and neighbors during that horrible time. Whether its riding her bike; playing bocce ball; going to Trivia or attending the many other functions here at Cherrywood, Pia is active and enjoys the abiding love and respect of her friends and neighbors. A ready smile and quick wit are hallmarks of her personality. She has endured the tragedies of her youth; the hardships of an uncertain world and survived with a stellar personality. Two daughters, Linda and Pam, and four grandchildren fill Pia with pride as she speaks of them. Linda lives in Myrtle Beach and Pam lives in Richmond, Virginia. They keep in close touch and see each other as often as possible. If you dont know Pia, youre missing a great treat.

When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy.

She led the fight to have our students stand for our Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem and showing respect for our American flag. She will take a strong stand to defend the values she holds dear, never backing down to organizations like the ACLU, who have goals other than having excellent schools. She will encourage more parents to be involved in their childrens education as well as others in our communities.

Wayne Rackley Ocala Luster keeps dimming Our beloved America is not the shining gem and envy of the world she once was ... and her luster keeps dimming. Americans cant find jobs; many are experiencing financial loss; our economy is in shambles; religion is being cast aside; family-values are disintegrating. Yet this administration seems not to care; it makes little effort to correct these problems; it doesnt even suggest realistic ways to fix them: This administration has mostly ignored the wishes of the American people. Now, the courts are doing the same: many of their rulings are based more on political-ideology than reality. America is becoming an entitlement-society: give free stuff to the people ... even those who dont need it. Unless tax reform a national sales tax is implemented, the middle class LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 will help fund the new society many of the wealthy will simply find another tax-loophole to ensure their contribution is minimal; the government will borrow even more money to help pay for the it. Spend, tax, borrow! Spend, tax, borrow ... until America eventually defaults. Is that really what we want for our beloved America? If we dont make a real change on Nov. 6, that will surely be our future. Joe OHara Ocala Experience mattersAnd, when electing the next Sheriff of Marion County, true cop experience should weigh in heavy. Chris Blair is a man who had his boots on the ground as a deputy, who climbed the ranks of the department and concluded his prestigious 35-year career at the MCSO as a Major/Bureau Chief with 23 years of managerial and executive experience. His opponent, Dan Kuhn, is a lawyer who has served at the MCSO for only six years. He entered the department as an attorney, and was appointed to Chief of Staff. Just prior to the announcement of his candidacy for Sheriff, he was appointed to the position of Undersheriff. Yes, Dan completed the academy and can shoot a gun, but the ability to shoot a gun doesnt make you uniquely qualified to lead our Sheriffs Office. He has not spent even one day on the streets of Marion County protecting and serving. Chris Blair has earned the endorsements of the Ocala Fraternal Order of Police, the Marion County Fraternal Order of Police, the Police Benevolent Association, the Florida Professional Firefighters as well as the esteemed, former Marion County Sheriff, Don Moreland. As a citizen of Marion County and resident of the 200 corridor, I want to know that we have plenty of men and women on the street who are serving and protecting, and I feel better knowing that the man at the top has served in that capacity as well.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident of Cherrywood that has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we feature Pia Dean. Pia was born in Ferrara, Italy, in the region of Emilia, the third of four girls in her family. Her sisters were two years in age apart. Maria was the oldest, and then came Agnese; Pia and the baby of the family, Elena. When she was 4 years old, Pias father was assigned to Tripoli, Libya, by the Italian government. In 1937, Italy was under the control of Mussolini with Libya as one of its territories. Her father had a job in the archives department of the diplomatic corps and so he packed up his wife and children and sailed for North Africa. Pia describes how seasick she was and how she still hesitates to get on a boat. In 1940, the war was closing in on the entire world in general and North Africa in particular. Mussolini ordered all the children of government employees out of Tripoli and back to Italy. Pia and her sisters were among those children who had to leave their parents and travel unescorted across the Mediterranean. At this time, the Mediterranean Sea was filled with submarines and mines to say nothing of hostile aircraft and surface vessels. The dangers were many and the comforts few on the overloaded ship. Pia was not only seasick; she was heartsick. For the next several years, the sisters suffered the hardships of war. Pia was sent to one school along with her baby sister Elena in Cattolica, Italy, while her older sisters were separated from them and put into another so called school. At age 11, Pias sister Maria passed away from illness while at the facility. These institutions were like military schools only much stricter. Pias eyes tear up as she thinks about the misery and hardships of those years. Hunger was an ever present companion and the punishments suffered at the hands of her overseers too harsh for her to describe. An example of the cruelties she suffered came one night in particular. After the Germans took over Italy, a group of Nazis came into her dormitory room. Within minutes, all of the girls had packed their two uniforms; a blanket and pillow and were marched outside. On the roof of the institution was a large Red Cross to alert bombers that this was a non-military target. The children were marched off to the town of Finalpia to be housed for a time in a horse barn while the Nazis set up their headquarters in the old school. At wars end, Pias family was reunited. Her father found work doing the same job he had been doing before only now he was working for the British and Americans in Tripoli. Life began to improve for the family as the years went on. Pia, now 16 and fluent in reading English, took a job as a seamstress and also went to school at night to learn how to speak English. By the age of 18 she was a translator working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She half joked about the colonel she worked for commenting that he was, quite fresh. Soon she was working on a new Air Force Base in Libya called Wheelus field. It is there that she met her future husband, Alphonso. Al, as he was called, worked in communications and spoke often with Pia over the phone but had never met her. One day, Pia asked him to go out for the evening on a date. At the time he didnt know that she was just trying to make another man jealous. Pia took Al to a club where the man, Victorio, was hanging out. Victorio hated GIs and soon a fight erupted between the two men. Al won. Not only did he win the fight, he also Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice...

S ometimes watching the news on television gets rather disparaging. Now that we have 24/7 news, not only can we see the news any time we want to, but we can see it over and over and over again. It is particularly disheartening when there is a slow news day. I think all of us can remember O.J. Simpsons mad race down a Los Angeles highway. I can remember the good old days when Uncle Walter brought us up to speed on the days news inside of a 30-minute program. Oh, for those good old days. Never has an American generation been exposed to so much and knows so little for so short a time. This all came to me recently when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching the news after our evening repast. I think it was the 9,999 times this particular news story had been played. Of course, we do not watch television that often and so we may only have seen a very short portion. The short portion that we saw was just about enough and my wife said so. It was the news story, if you remember, of the bus lady who was bullied by children. I think those children, my wife said and then paused while she grit her teeth violently, need a good old-fashioned spanking. And with that, she crossed her arms and set her face in a defiant manner. Luckily, I was not one of those children or I would have received the intentions of her mind at that point. Her comment got me to thinking. There was a time, back in the day, when spankings were rather normal. Someone once said that if you saw a young boy on the street you should stop what youre doing and give him a good spanking because he was either coming from trouble or headed for trouble. Raising children then was a community affair. I am not sure that ever took place, but it does have an authentic ring to it. I semi-fondly remember when I was a youngster I had the heebie-jeebies whaled out of me by my father on a regular basis. And I can testify that I have not missed those heebiejeebies. My life is better for not having them. Watching the video about the kids bullying that bus lady, I could not help but think that they were a rather spoiled bunch of little brats. Pardon my French. I think I would have taken it one step further than my wife. Not only do those youngsters need a good old-fashioned spanking but I think their parents do as well. Kids today are only a mirror of what they see and hear at home. When I was young, the only spoiled brats around were the children of the rich folk. They could afford to be spoiled brats because their parents with their money bought their way into society. The only thing those kids ever earned was a bad reputation and distain from the rest of us. The rest of us, having gone through the spanking rituals, could not afford to be spoiled brats. Good parents made sure of that. I think of what my father use to say. Son, Im going to take this Board of Education and apply it to the seat of your learning. I can testify that he was very enthusiastic about his job. With all that education, I have had multiple degrees on my posterior. Even to this day, every time I sit down I am reminded of that education. This Board of Education that my father was superintendent of, always hung by the door. Being the religious person that my father was, he had printed on this Board of Education the phrase from a favorite hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour. It was a motto he BY BILL FORD On Nov. 13, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln began this famous Gettysburg address, at the Gettysburg Battlefield with these above words. If you were to continue with the first paragraph of this address, you would read that, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition, that all men are created equal. This is probably the most famous address in history. I would wonder today, if any of our school children or their teachers even know of this speech. When I was in school, we had to memorize it. I dont know who will remember that Lincoln was originally a Democrat but became a Republican as the republicans were against slavery and Stephen A. Douglas became a Democrat. Four score and seven years ago from now, another Republican led us into another war, a war for financial disaster, as we were on track to the great depression. That president for those who dont remember, was Herbert Hoover. We were met upon a great battlefield of that war as well, albeit a different type of war, a financially disastrous war. Then, along came President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to save us from that debacle. He created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and Work Progress Administration (WPA), work programs to save the country. Far more effective programs than any union movement. Today just one year shy of six score years from that time, we are seven years removed from President George W. Bush leading us into a severe recession, from which we have yet to recover. Now a Democrat is trying to save this union, and no president yet, has been able to accomplish this in three short years. Lincoln saved the Union but not the economy. Just ask the southern people about the northern carpetbaggers. It took President Roosevelt five years to save our economy and save the union even through a war until his untimely death. Are you following me here? Now again I say, were seven years from the Bush debacle, and the Republicans want us to return to the years of deceit, recession and a party that led us into the 10 years war by lies, that cost thousands of dead and wounded Americans. If the Republicans had their way, we would continue our warring ways beyond the timetable set by President Obama to get out of Afghanistan. If we were to study political parties since our founding, and I have, since I was a history minor in college, we first had the Federals, then the Tories, National Republicans, Whigs, Free Soil party. I dont believe anyone will remember, the Original Republican Party was against the United States Bank. In another act, the Whigs took over the National Republican Party in 1834. This information can be found in Jesse Macys book, Political Parties of the United States, 1846-1861. So you see, its not the party stupid, its about a man, a quality president who stands for the people, not themselves. During the Greek Civil War, from 1946-1949, Thucydides wrote, the opposition parties speak the same language, but had lost the ability to understand each other. That sounds like our congress today or maybe forever. Having worked for the 92nd Congress, and lobbied two legislatures, Im convinced the members of these suffering bodies have nothing in mind but their own well being and reelection. Remember John Boehner, when he became speaker of the House of Representatives, cried and said he had wanted that position all of his life. Im probably giving you too much information here, but history could stand to repeat itself and I cant find in any annals of history, where a Republican saved the economy of America. Presidents Reagan, and George H. W. Bush were fiscally irresponsible and consequently, President Clinton saved our economy, and left office with a $7 trillion dollar surplus. But the country was steeped into a $21 trillion debt within two years of George W. Bush, becoming president and leaving the Democrats and President Obama an almost insurmountable task to restore fiscal responsibility to the country. Ah, I remember it well. Now we are met upon another great battlefield of a war to preserve the union. President Obamas health program is a target, just as was Medicare back in the 1960s by the republicans. Theirs is a real effort to divert attention from the real serious issues of health care and jobs. Jobs are coming back, but our society being an impatient one, we want it all now, not with a sound infrastructure but one built on unstable sand. To this date I have not heard one definitive plan put forward by the Republicans, i.e., Mitt Romney as to how he will solve not one alluded to problem, but to any problem. Romney says he will correct Obamas mistakes and give our economy a boost which is just a boast. Ive always adhered to old saying, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Weve had two Bushes who were for the rich and oil. Do we want a multimilloionaire who couldnt run a state or a private business to try and manage our country? I think not! Remember, history tends to repeat itself, but we cant let that happen in these times.

O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE12 T he Veterans Club out did itself on Saturday, July 7, with an evening of first class food; entertainment and a wide variety of door prizes. A record number of veterans; their spouses and guests showed up for this event and none of them left disappointed. Lees Chicken delivered a delicious dinner of chicken; mashed potatoes & gravy; green beans and biscuits. Eve Houghtaling directed the diners while Peggy Konar coordinated the servers and thanks to their leadership, over 120 guests were served by our volunteers in less than 30 minutes. That in itself has to be a new record. At 6 p.m., Veterans Club President Bill Mahar led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance and the playing of the military service songs medley. Next, the audience joined in for the singing of Proud to be an American and that brought down the house. Throughout the evening Bill and Eve gave away more than a dozen door prizes that had been donated along with the 50/50 drawings. Shortly after 6 p.m. Kenny Jackson began the entertainment with his country western music; bright wit and unique style. Interspersed with the tunes were Kennys comedy; some great Karaoke and a few tricks along the way to bring roars of laugher and rousing applause from the crowd. Dancing and singing the night away, everyone had a great time. Kennys reputation as a deejay is well known in Marion County and Cherrywood is looking forward to his return for the August Summer Fest celebration. Marion County Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and his wife Tasha stopped by to express their appreciation to the veterans for their service and sacrifice. Fred and Marion OHern rewarded Dan with a police helmet from the London England Constabulary. Dan was very grateful for the gift and the sentiment behind it. The Veterans Club sponsored this event free of charge to veterans and their significant others. This was our way as an organization to say Thank you to our many veterans. We invite all Cherrywood veterans to join and become an active part of this great organization that sponsors many varying veterans projects and provides much needed support to our service personnel. As a closing note, the Veterans Club wants everyone to know that none of the monies gained from the cruise raffle last May was used for this event. All of that money has been and will remain, earmarked for Veterans Charities. Newcomers coffee hourOn Saturday, July 14, there will be a special coffee hour for all of Cherrywoods new residents. Our Welcoming Committee will host this event to welcome the many new people who have become part of our community this year. If you have moved into Cherrywood in the past six months or less, you are warmly invited to attend this chance to meet some of your neighbors and to receive some helpful information concerning our community and Marion County. Im confident you will find it a fun and informative time so come on out for a cup of coffee and a donut or two on us. Summer Fest 100 Days of Summer Fest is in full swing and continues on July 23 with another gala event. Dinner will be served from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. at which time Rich Becotte will crank up the music that we all love to hear and dance to. Admission is free to all our residents but you do need a ticket. Guests can get their passes and tickets from Geri in the office for $12 per person. Plan to come early to insure that you get a good place to sit. There will be no reserving of seats allowed. At 6 p.m., get ready to kick up your feet and dance to the music of Rich Becotte and his wide variety of tunes. Note: Geri is going to be on vacation from July 16 through the 20th so get your tickets right away. For those of you who like to procrastinate, a Social Committee volunteer will be in the clubhouse on Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon to supply tickets. Trivia Night is comingOn July 18 at 7 p.m., Trivia Night again comes to the clubhouse. After the near record turn out of last month, we are looking for some strong competition this month as Fred OHern and Rich Hurley try to stump the teams. Our emcees put questions up on the big screen and the participating teams try their best to fill in the answers on the answer sheets provided. If you dont have a team, (usually 3 or 4 people) come on out anyway and youll be assigned one. Grab your favorite beverage and snack and join in the fun as everyone vies for bragging rights and maybe even a cash prize. Its only a dollar to play with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Fund. You cant lose by coming out; you have fun; learn a few things; support a good cause and laugh with your neighbors and friends. After their total defeat last month, the Guppies team is coming out for revenge; or at least theyll try and do a little better. Come on out and give them some friendly and challenging competition. In August there wont be a Trivia Night as the emcees need a little break but theyll be back on the third Thursday of September. Dont miss this fun time. CERT Cherrywood Emergency Management Team will hold its meeting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday the 18th. This is going to be an open meeting for those who wish to learn more about emergency preparedness and safety. Everyone is welcome and those with special needs such as mobility problems; oxygen dependency; medications that require constant refrigeration and those with limited transportation are especially urged to attend. Forms will be available to let the CERT team know your needs and allow them to meet those needs in the event of an emergency. Forms are also available from Geri in the office. CERT stands ready to assist our community during times of natural disasters; storms or civil emergencies with dependable and professional personnel and equipment. Come out to the meeting to show your support for these people and to help insure your personal safety. Geri on VacationGeri will be enjoying her granddaughters visit from the 16th until the 20th of July. Tickets for Summer Fest will available from a Social Committee volunteer in the clubhouse from 10 a.m. until noon on Monday and Tuesday only that week. Co-Ed Tai Chi/ Water Aerobics There is a slight schedule adjustment for all of our Co-Ed Tai Chi; Stretch/Yoga; and Water Aerobics students this month. On Monday, July 23, there will be no Water Aerobics at 11:30 a.m. or Tai Chi at 6:30 p.m. There will be a Stretch/Yoga class that day at 10:15 a.m. Make up date for the Water Aerobics will be Tuesday, July 24th at 11:30 a.m. The Co-Ed Tai Chi is cancelled that night because of Summer Fest. Please mark your calendars to reflect this slight schedule change. Our instructor, Dr. Deb Rivera is hoping that all of her students will be able to attend the make up session for Water Aerobics class. We are fortunate here at Cherrywood to have such a professional and dedicated fitness instructor as Deb.

lived up to all the years of my boyhood. I often prayed my father would get weary of exercising that Board, but I must confess that my naughtiness wearied long before he did. Looking back, I am grateful. I will not go as far as to say that I am a good person, only that I am not a spoiled brat. I have learned through the years, thanks to the energy of my father, to extend courtesy to everybody around me and be respectful. Respecting other people is not something that comes naturally. Everybody needs to be taught that everybody deserves respect. Some people have earned more respect than others, I grant you. However, nobody deserves deliberate disrespect like those kids gave that bus lady. With all the studies are being done through our governmental grant programs, I wonder why nobody has ever, at least to my knowledge, done a study on the importance of discipline in the home. It is at this point I must agree most heartily with the scriptural injunction on this subject. Solomon, the wisest man in the world, had much to say about disciplining children. And if anybody should know about disciplining children, it was Solomon. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15 KJV). He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (Proverbs 13:24 KJV). Disciplining children to ensure they grow up to be proper adults demands a whole lot of energy especially from parents. Love sometimes carries a large stick. Rev. James L.

Oak Run TravelYou can start looking forward to our new travel brochure and all the wonderful trips we have planned. The fall brochure will be coming out in early October. It will include a lot of interesting trips for you to consider. Many are the old favorites our residents love to go on every year but there are always the great surprises and exciting multi-day trips like cruises plus places you always wanted to see. Here are a couple of reminders for day trips in September and October of this year. Hostess Valerie Oddo is going to Hard Rock on Sept. 19 (#7 in the Spring 2012 Brochure). Due to residents requests the departure time has changed to 12:15 p.m. and the trip will return around 7 p.m. Get $30 in free play and a $5 food voucher for just $22 per person including the bus drivers tip. Call Valerie, she would like to hear from you. Number 13 in the Spring 2012 Brochure is Moon Over Buffalo at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre on Oct. 27. This is a madcap farce about two traveling stage actors who find out a famous director will be seeing one of their shows to determine if he wants to use them in his new film. Mistakes are made and family members cause lots of problems as one of the actors gets drunk resulting in a disastrous show. See how it all comes out while you are rolling in the isle. Cost is $58 per person and includes the lunch buffet, show and bus drivers tip. Call hosts Frank and Shirley Semmelmayer to get your seat for this fun trip.

lived up to all the years of my boyhood. I often prayed my father would get weary of exercising that Board, but I must confess that my naughtiness wearied long before he did. Looking back, I am grateful. I will not go as far as to say that I am a good person, only that I am not a spoiled brat. I have learned through the years, thanks to the energy of my father, to extend courtesy to everybody around me and be respectful. Respecting other people is not something that comes naturally. Everybody needs to be taught that everybody deserves respect. Some people have earned more respect than others, I grant you. However, nobody deserves deliberate disrespect like those kids gave that bus lady. With all the studies are being done through our governmental grant programs, I wonder why nobody has ever, at least to my knowledge, done a study on the importance of discipline in the home. It is at this point I must agree most heartily with the scriptural injunction on this subject. Solomon, the wisest man in the world, had much to say about disciplining children. And if anybody should know about disciplining children, it was Solomon. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15 KJV). He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (Proverbs 13:24 KJV). Disciplining children to ensure they grow up to be proper adults demands a whole lot of energy especially from parents. Love sometimes carries a large stick. Rev. James L.

No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic. Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets just right for one bite are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead. Wrapped tightly and refrigerated for several hours, the flavors meld deliciously. Warm weather classic lemonade gets a ruby-red makeover.

S ometimes watching the news on television gets rather disparaging. Now that we have 24/7 news, not only can we see the news any time we want to, but we can see it over and over and over again. It is particularly disheartening when there is a slow news day. I think all of us can remember O.J. Simpsons mad race down a Los Angeles highway. I can remember the good old days when Uncle Walter brought us up to speed on the days news inside of a 30-minute program. Oh, for those good old days. Never has an American generation been exposed to so much and knows so little for so short a time. This all came to me recently when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching the news after our evening repast. I think it was the 9,999 times this particular news story had been played. Of course, we do not watch television that often and so we may only have seen a very short portion. The short portion that we saw was just about enough and my wife said so. It was the news story, if you remember, of the bus lady who was bullied by children. I think those children, my wife said and then paused while she grit her teeth violently, need a good old-fashioned spanking. And with that, she crossed her arms and set her face in a defiant manner. Luckily, I was not one of those children or I would have received the intentions of her mind at that point. Her comment got me to thinking. There was a time, back in the day, when spankings were rather normal. Someone once said that if you saw a young boy on the street you should stop what youre doing and give him a good spanking because he was either coming from trouble or headed for trouble. Raising children then was a community affair. I am not sure that ever took place, but it does have an authentic ring to it. I semi-fondly remember when I was a youngster I had the heebie-jeebies whaled out of me by my father on a regular basis. And I can testify that I have not missed those heebiejeebies. My life is better for not having them. Watching the video about the kids bullying that bus lady, I could not help but think that they were a rather spoiled bunch of little brats. Pardon my French. I think I would have taken it one step further than my wife. Not only do those youngsters need a good old-fashioned spanking but I think their parents do as well. Kids today are only a mirror of what they see and hear at home. When I was young, the only spoiled brats around were the children of the rich folk. They could afford to be spoiled brats because their parents with their money bought their way into society. The only thing those kids ever earned was a bad reputation and distain from the rest of us. The rest of us, having gone through the spanking rituals, could not afford to be spoiled brats. Good parents made sure of that. I think of what my father use to say. Son, Im going to take this Board of Education and apply it to the seat of your learning. I can testify that he was very enthusiastic about his job. With all that education, I have had multiple degrees on my posterior. Even to this day, every time I sit down I am reminded of that education. This Board of Education that my father was superintendent of, always hung by the door. Being the religious person that my father was, he had printed on this Board of Education the phrase from a favorite hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour. It was a motto he BY BILL FORD On Nov. 13, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln began this famous Gettysburg address, at the Gettysburg Battlefield with these above words. If you were to continue with the first paragraph of this address, you would read that, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition, that all men are created equal. This is probably the most famous address in history. I would wonder today, if any of our school children or their teachers even know of this speech. When I was in school, we had to memorize it. I dont know who will remember that Lincoln was originally a Democrat but became a Republican as the republicans were against slavery and Stephen A. Douglas became a Democrat. Four score and seven years ago from now, another Republican led us into another war, a war for financial disaster, as we were on track to the great depression. That president for those who dont remember, was Herbert Hoover. We were met upon a great battlefield of that war as well, albeit a different type of war, a financially disastrous war. Then, along came President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to save us from that debacle. He created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and Work Progress Administration (WPA), work programs to save the country. Far more effective programs than any union movement. Today just one year shy of six score years from that time, we are seven years removed from President George W. Bush leading us into a severe recession, from which we have yet to recover. Now a Democrat is trying to save this union, and no president yet, has been able to accomplish this in three short years. Lincoln saved the Union but not the economy. Just ask the southern people about the northern carpetbaggers. It took President Roosevelt five years to save our economy and save the union even through a war until his untimely death. Are you following me here? Now again I say, were seven years from the Bush debacle, and the Republicans want us to return to the years of deceit, recession and a party that led us into the 10 years war by lies, that cost thousands of dead and wounded Americans. If the Republicans had their way, we would continue our warring ways beyond the timetable set by President Obama to get out of Afghanistan. If we were to study political parties since our founding, and I have, since I was a history minor in college, we first had the Federals, then the Tories, National Republicans, Whigs, Free Soil party. I dont believe anyone will remember, the Original Republican Party was against the United States Bank. In another act, the Whigs took over the National Republican Party in 1834. This information can be found in Jesse Macys book, Political Parties of the United States, 1846-1861. So you see, its not the party stupid, its about a man, a quality president who stands for the people, not themselves. During the Greek Civil War, from 1946-1949, Thucydides wrote, the opposition parties speak the same language, but had lost the ability to understand each other. That sounds like our congress today or maybe forever. Having worked for the 92nd Congress, and lobbied two legislatures, Im convinced the members of these suffering bodies have nothing in mind but their own well being and reelection. Remember John Boehner, when he became speaker of the House of Representatives, cried and said he had wanted that position all of his life. Im probably giving you too much information here, but history could stand to repeat itself and I cant find in any annals of history, where a Republican saved the economy of America. Presidents Reagan, and George H. W. Bush were fiscally irresponsible and consequently, President Clinton saved our economy, and left office with a $7 trillion dollar surplus. But the country was steeped into a $21 trillion debt within two years of George W. Bush, becoming president and leaving the Democrats and President Obama an almost insurmountable task to restore fiscal responsibility to the country. Ah, I remember it well. Now we are met upon another great battlefield of a war to preserve the union. President Obamas health program is a target, just as was Medicare back in the 1960s by the republicans. Theirs is a real effort to divert attention from the real serious issues of health care and jobs. Jobs are coming back, but our society being an impatient one, we want it all now, not with a sound infrastructure but one built on unstable sand. To this date I have not heard one definitive plan put forward by the Republicans, i.e., Mitt Romney as to how he will solve not one alluded to problem, but to any problem. Romney says he will correct Obamas mistakes and give our economy a boost which is just a boast. Ive always adhered to old saying, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Weve had two Bushes who were for the rich and oil. Do we want a multimilloionaire who couldnt run a state or a private business to try and manage our country? I think not! Remember, history tends to repeat itself, but we cant let that happen in these times.

O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE12 T he Veterans Club out did itself on Saturday, July 7, with an evening of first class food; entertainment and a wide variety of door prizes. A record number of veterans; their spouses and guests showed up for this event and none of them left disappointed. Lees Chicken delivered a delicious dinner of chicken; mashed potatoes & gravy; green beans and biscuits. Eve Houghtaling directed the diners while Peggy Konar coordinated the servers and thanks to their leadership, over 120 guests were served by our volunteers in less than 30 minutes. That in itself has to be a new record. At 6 p.m., Veterans Club President Bill Mahar led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance and the playing of the military service songs medley. Next, the audience joined in for the singing of Proud to be an American and that brought down the house. Throughout the evening Bill and Eve gave away more than a dozen door prizes that had been donated along with the 50/50 drawings. Shortly after 6 p.m. Kenny Jackson began the entertainment with his country western music; bright wit and unique style. Interspersed with the tunes were Kennys comedy; some great Karaoke and a few tricks along the way to bring roars of laugher and rousing applause from the crowd. Dancing and singing the night away, everyone had a great time. Kennys reputation as a deejay is well known in Marion County and Cherrywood is looking forward to his return for the August Summer Fest celebration. Marion County Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and his wife Tasha stopped by to express their appreciation to the veterans for their service and sacrifice. Fred and Marion OHern rewarded Dan with a police helmet from the London England Constabulary. Dan was very grateful for the gift and the sentiment behind it. The Veterans Club sponsored this event free of charge to veterans and their significant others. This was our way as an organization to say Thank you to our many veterans. We invite all Cherrywood veterans to join and become an active part of this great organization that sponsors many varying veterans projects and provides much needed support to our service personnel. As a closing note, the Veterans Club wants everyone to know that none of the monies gained from the cruise raffle last May was used for this event. All of that money has been and will remain, earmarked for Veterans Charities. Newcomers coffee hourOn Saturday, July 14, there will be a special coffee hour for all of Cherrywoods new residents. Our Welcoming Committee will host this event to welcome the many new people who have become part of our community this year. If you have moved into Cherrywood in the past six months or less, you are warmly invited to attend this chance to meet some of your neighbors and to receive some helpful information concerning our community and Marion County. Im confident you will find it a fun and informative time so come on out for a cup of coffee and a donut or two on us. Summer Fest 100 Days of Summer Fest is in full swing and continues on July 23 with another gala event. Dinner will be served from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. at which time Rich Becotte will crank up the music that we all love to hear and dance to. Admission is free to all our residents but you do need a ticket. Guests can get their passes and tickets from Geri in the office for $12 per person. Plan to come early to insure that you get a good place to sit. There will be no reserving of seats allowed. At 6 p.m., get ready to kick up your feet and dance to the music of Rich Becotte and his wide variety of tunes. Note: Geri is going to be on vacation from July 16 through the 20th so get your tickets right away. For those of you who like to procrastinate, a Social Committee volunteer will be in the clubhouse on Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon to supply tickets. Trivia Night is comingOn July 18 at 7 p.m., Trivia Night again comes to the clubhouse. After the near record turn out of last month, we are looking for some strong competition this month as Fred OHern and Rich Hurley try to stump the teams. Our emcees put questions up on the big screen and the participating teams try their best to fill in the answers on the answer sheets provided. If you dont have a team, (usually 3 or 4 people) come on out anyway and youll be assigned one. Grab your favorite beverage and snack and join in the fun as everyone vies for bragging rights and maybe even a cash prize. Its only a dollar to play with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Fund. You cant lose by coming out; you have fun; learn a few things; support a good cause and laugh with your neighbors and friends. After their total defeat last month, the Guppies team is coming out for revenge; or at least theyll try and do a little better. Come on out and give them some friendly and challenging competition. In August there wont be a Trivia Night as the emcees need a little break but theyll be back on the third Thursday of September. Dont miss this fun time. CERT Cherrywood Emergency Management Team will hold its meeting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday the 18th. This is going to be an open meeting for those who wish to learn more about emergency preparedness and safety. Everyone is welcome and those with special needs such as mobility problems; oxygen dependency; medications that require constant refrigeration and those with limited transportation are especially urged to attend. Forms will be available to let the CERT team know your needs and allow them to meet those needs in the event of an emergency. Forms are also available from Geri in the office. CERT stands ready to assist our community during times of natural disasters; storms or civil emergencies with dependable and professional personnel and equipment. Come out to the meeting to show your support for these people and to help insure your personal safety. Geri on VacationGeri will be enjoying her granddaughters visit from the 16th until the 20th of July. Tickets for Summer Fest will available from a Social Committee volunteer in the clubhouse from 10 a.m. until noon on Monday and Tuesday only that week. Co-Ed Tai Chi/ Water Aerobics There is a slight schedule adjustment for all of our Co-Ed Tai Chi; Stretch/Yoga; and Water Aerobics students this month. On Monday, July 23, there will be no Water Aerobics at 11:30 a.m. or Tai Chi at 6:30 p.m. There will be a Stretch/Yoga class that day at 10:15 a.m. Make up date for the Water Aerobics will be Tuesday, July 24th at 11:30 a.m. The Co-Ed Tai Chi is cancelled that night because of Summer Fest. Please mark your calendars to reflect this slight schedule change. Our instructor, Dr. Deb Rivera is hoping that all of her students will be able to attend the make up session for Water Aerobics class. We are fortunate here at Cherrywood to have such a professional and dedicated fitness instructor as Deb. Her knowledge and expertise in all things fitness is only surpassed by her commitment to her students and their well being.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident of Cherrywood that has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we feature Pia Dean. Pia was born in Ferrara, Italy, in the region of Emilia, the third of four girls in her family. Her sisters were two years in age apart. Maria was the oldest, and then came Agnese; Pia and the baby of the family, Elena. When she was 4 years old, Pias father was assigned to Tripoli, Libya, by the Italian government. In 1937, Italy was under the control of Mussolini with Libya as one of its territories. Her father had a job in the archives department of the diplomatic corps and so he packed up his wife and children and sailed for North Africa. Pia describes how seasick she was and how she still hesitates to get on a boat. In 1940, the war was closing in on the entire world in general and North Africa in particular. Mussolini ordered all the children of government employees out of Tripoli and back to Italy. Pia and her sisters were among those children who had to leave their parents and travel unescorted across the Mediterranean. At this time, the Mediterranean Sea was filled with submarines and mines to say nothing of hostile aircraft and surface vessels. The dangers were many and the comforts few on the overloaded ship. Pia was not only seasick; she was heartsick. For the next several years, the sisters suffered the hardships of war. Pia was sent to one school along with her baby sister Elena in Cattolica, Italy, while her older sisters were separated from them and put into another so called school. At age 11, Pias sister Maria passed away from illness while at the facility. These institutions were like military schools only much stricter. Pias eyes tear up as she thinks about the misery and hardships of those years. Hunger was an ever present companion and the punishments suffered at the hands of her overseers too harsh for her to describe. An example of the cruelties she suffered came one night in particular. After the Germans took over Italy, a group of Nazis came into her dormitory room. Within minutes, all of the girls had packed their two uniforms; a blanket and pillow and were marched outside. On the roof of the institution was a large Red Cross to alert bombers that this was a non-military target. The children were marched off to the town of Finalpia to be housed for a time in a horse barn while the Nazis set up their headquarters in the old school. At wars end, Pias family was reunited. Her father found work doing the same job he had been doing before only now he was working for the British and Americans in Tripoli. Life began to improve for the family as the years went on. Pia, now 16 and fluent in reading English, took a job as a seamstress and also went to school at night to learn how to speak English. By the age of 18 she was a translator working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She half joked about the colonel she worked for commenting that he was, quite fresh. Soon she was working on a new Air Force Base in Libya called Wheelus field. It is there that she met her future husband, Alphonso. Al, as he was called, worked in communications and spoke often with Pia over the phone but had never met her. One day, Pia asked him to go out for the evening on a date. At the time he didnt know that she was just trying to make another man jealous. Pia took Al to a club where the man, Victorio, was hanging out. Victorio hated GIs and soon a fight erupted between the two men. Al won. Not only did he win the fight, he also Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice...

She led the fight to have our students stand for our Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem and showing respect for our American flag. She will take a strong stand to defend the values she holds dear, never backing down to organizations like the ACLU, who have goals other than having excellent schools. She will encourage more parents to be involved in their childrens education as well as others in our communities. This is not intended to discredit other candidates, it is solely intended to have everyone look at them in a way that considers all of the above. Isnt this the way we should view all candidates for any elected position? Wayne Rackley Ocala Luster keeps dimming Our beloved America is not the shining gem and envy of the world she once was ... and her luster keeps dimming. Americans cant find jobs; many are experiencing financial loss; our economy is in shambles; religion is being cast aside; family-values are disintegrating. Yet this administration seems not to care; it makes little effort to correct these problems; it doesnt even suggest realistic ways to fix them: This administration has mostly ignored the wishes of the American people. Now, the courts are doing the same: many of their rulings are based more on political-ideology than reality. America is becoming an entitlement-society: give free stuff to the people ... even those who dont need it. Unless tax reform a national sales tax is implemented, the middle class LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 will help fund the new society many of the wealthy will simply find another tax-loophole to ensure their contribution is minimal; the government will borrow even more money to help pay for the it. Spend, tax, borrow! Spend, tax, borrow ... until America eventually defaults. Is that really what we want for our beloved America? If we dont make a real change on Nov. 6, that will surely be our future. Joe OHara Ocala Experience mattersAnd, when electing the next Sheriff of Marion County, true cop experience should weigh in heavy. Chris Blair is a man who had his boots on the ground as a deputy, who climbed the ranks of the department and concluded his prestigious 35-year career at the MCSO as a Major/Bureau Chief with 23 years of managerial and executive experience. His opponent, Dan Kuhn, is a lawyer who has served at the MCSO for only six years. He entered the department as an attorney, and was appointed to Chief of Staff. Just prior to the announcement of his candidacy for Sheriff, he was appointed to the position of Undersheriff. Yes, Dan completed the academy and can shoot a gun, but the ability to shoot a gun doesnt make you uniquely qualified to lead our Sheriffs Office. He has not spent even one day on the streets of Marion County protecting and serving. Chris Blair has earned the endorsements of the Ocala Fraternal Order of Police, the Marion County Fraternal Order of Police, the Police Benevolent Association, the Florida Professional Firefighters as well as the esteemed, former Marion County Sheriff, Don Moreland. As a citizen of Marion County and resident of the 200 corridor, I want to know that we have plenty of men and women on the street who are serving and protecting, and I feel better knowing that the man at the top has served in that capacity as well. Randall Brown Ocala Female Barbershop singers wantedFemale Barbershop singers in all voices ranges are being sought for a four-part harmony Barbershop chorus in Ocala.

Roving Rabbis to visit OcalaSardinia, Italy; The Dakotas; Bosnia; Beijing, China; Des Plains, IL; Kauai, HI; Wales, UK and now Ocala. Each summer, Merkos Linyonei Chinuch, the educational arm of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, dispatches hundreds of rabbinical students to small Jewish communities around the globe. Rabbinical students and young rabbis spend their summers on the road, sharing their passion for Jewish life and bringing Jewish awareness and observance wherever they go. They visit thousands of outposts in Asia, Europe, The Americas and beyond. 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.

Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com E veryone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting reelected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlewww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 13, 2012 T riskaidekaphobia. Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of todays date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (A-rod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

S o for a few weeks, the many Social Security recipients in the area will have to do without a local office. It seems that Tropical Storm Debby flooded out the building just south of the Square in Ocala and it had to be shut down. But thats not the issue. The question is why Social Security didnt have a Plan B in operation to keep local services, pardon the pun, flowing. The Social Security office is moving into a new building on East Silver Springs Boulevard at about the 1000 block. Construction has been under way for several months, and officials said the building should be ready next month. You can see the progress in an accompanying photo. But what if a new building wasnt already under construction? What would the folks at Social Security have done? Continue sending people to Gainesville and Leesburg? Government people say that most Social Security services can be done online, that there is no need for many people to go to the office. But just go into the office on any weekday and youll find a full waiting room of people, many of them elderly or disabled, waiting to talk to a representative. Arent Social Security officials aware that many people who receive their services dont have access to a computer, or have only limited knowledge of the operation of the Internet? While the government was a little unlucky with the timing of the shutdown, just a couple of months before the new building was ready, it was indeed fortunate that the new building is almost ready. This time, people should be told what will happen if an emergency strikes. The thousands of recipients in the Ocala area deserve to know that officials care enough to keep the services coming. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Social Security: No plan B? Triskaidekaphobia, Parskevidekatriaphobia Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Supreme Court has spoken! Whats next? Who is Jackie Porter?It seems a day cant go by without someone condemning her for being a candidate for Marion County superintendent of schools. Many have the opinion that no one could possibly handle the responsibilities of that job without having a college degree or better. While I have the utmost respect for anyone who holds such degrees, they dont mean the person is qualified for any particular position, especially one of leadership/management. On the flip side, not having one doesnt mean the person isnt qualified. I prefer to look at qualifications based on a broad range of abilities and experience along with a very close look at who they are as individuals. This means what they stand for, what guides their decisions and what visions they have for our future. In other words, just who they really are. Her stated number one goal is to improve our dismal record of being in 44th place of the 67 counties. She sees us in the top 20! This low rating causes me to think that what we have been doing in our schools is not working out very well. With this in mind, maybe its time to have someone making important decisions that has the ability to think outside the box Some minimize her business experience in managing a successful business for some 20 years. This in itself is an amazing accomplishment! Anyone who has ever served in a management position knows excellent leadership and fiscal skills are necessary to accomplish this feat. Small business owners have always been the strength of our economy, providing the majority of jobs in our private sector. To be successful they must have business and people skills. I have the privilege of knowing Jackie personally and have always been impressed with her and her value system. Her virtues are many: honesty, love of God, loyalty, dedication to excellence, high character, self discipline, and love of our country. She desires to have discipline in Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN PAGE21 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThe new Social Security office being built on East Silver Springs Boulevard.

When he was discharged, Al and Pia moved to Maryland, where Al was from originally. He took a position with Western Union in their aerospace communications division and Pia found work with the Bank of America. After their retirement, Pia and Al moved to Cape Coral, Florida, where Pia took work with Bank of America again. For economic reasons, they decided to move and found out about Cherrywood from friends. That was in 2001 and they loved this community then and Pia still loves it now. A couple of years ago, after 53 years of marriage, Al passed away. It was at that time that Pia realized how close a community could be. Her eyes tear up when she speaks of the kindness of friends and neighbors during that horrible time. Whether its riding her bike; playing bocce ball; going to Trivia or attending the many other functions here at Cherrywood, Pia is active and enjoys the abiding love and respect of her friends and neighbors. A ready smile and quick wit are hallmarks of her personality. She has endured the tragedies of her youth; the hardships of an uncertain world and survived with a stellar personality. Two daughters, Linda and Pam, and four grandchildren fill Pia with pride as she speaks of them. Linda lives in Myrtle Beach and Pam lives in Richmond, Virginia. They keep in close touch and see each other as often as possible. If you dont know Pia, youre missing a great treat. Introduce yourself to her and experience the joy that comes from knowing this special lady.

When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs. On the campaign trail for re-election, Mr. Obama still refers to his 2008 campaign slogan Change we can believe in. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Hospice volunteers neededVolunteers needed.

Storms, shipwrecks, sorcery, and Shakespeare abound this summer as Ocala Civic Theatre presents a youth production of The Tempest on Aug. 3 and 4. The production will be directed by classically trained New York director and drama teacher Jordan Jones. Jones, who has a BFA in theatre from the University of Connecticut, also studied in London and trained at Shakespeares Globe Theater. This will not be the youth version of The Tempest, but instead will be the original Shakespeare (though abridged), with a running time of about 90 minutes. The cast of 20 will consist of students age 10 and older. Jackie Osterman, director of education, chose to incorporate Shakespeare into the youth curriculum because she wanted to teach students the importance of the classics and their relevance to modern life. I think every theatre student needs to be exposed to everything from classical to contemporary theatre, Osterman said. I heard kids saying, We cant do Shakespeare or Its boring. Shakespeare is exciting and interesting. The stories are fantastic. There isnt a sitcom today that doesnt owe a plot element to Shakespeare. Jones, having seen the youth production of Robin Hood this spring, felt that The Tempest would be a good match for Ocala Civic Theatre students. His hunch seems to be correct so far; class enrollment is already full. Set on a mythical island, The Tempests cast of characters includes Prospero the magician, his daughter Miranda, the mischievous spirit Ariel, and the villainous Caliban. It is an epic tale of adventure, full of witches, monsters, kings, goddesses, jesters, jealous brothers, romance, treachery, royal weddings, sea nymphs, enchanted trees, and magic spells. If Harry Potter and Shakespeare met, this is what you would have, said Osterman. Like the Harry Potter books, The Tempest has a darker side. This is a play about love, bitterness, regret, and time lost, Jones said. Prospero has shielded his daughter Miranda from the outside world her entire life because he knows that all the magic in the world cant protect his daughter from the cruelty of humanity. Jones envisions a sixteenth-century Caribbean or New World/Spanish colonial look for the minimalist set, which will rely heavily on lighting and sound effects to create the plays magical atmosphere. Costumes will be a mix of traditional and contemporary, and the set will be a non-literal interpretation of the iconic storm and shipwreck which brings several characters to the island. The otherworldly mood will be evoked by thunder and colorful lights, in rich hues of blue, green, gold, red, and orange. Performances of The Tempest will be Friday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are $10 for adults, $6 for students, and $5 for Marion Players. For more information, call the box office at 352-236-2274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com. Ocala Civic Theatre is at 4337 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (East State Road 40) in the Appleton Cultural Center. The theatre produces more than 12 fully staged, professional-quality live performances each season and also hosts touring companies. The Ocala Civic Theatre is volunteer-based and is one of the largest community theatres in the state, serving more than 70,000 Marion, Citrus and Lake County residents each season. Civic Theatre to present youth production of The Tempest A FT ER W ARDS B y R osamund L upton In Afterwards British author Lupton transports readers to another world thats part real and part supernatural. Grace, the comatose narrator, tells the story of a catastrophic fire at her 8-year-old son Adams school. It is sports day and everyone is thought to be outside. However, thats not the case because Graces 17-year-old daughter Jenny is inside acting as school nurse for the day. Without thinking Grace rushes to her aid. The first few chapters are confusing until we realize the conversation she seems to be having with her husband is unheard by him. Grace can only communicate with her daughter who is also in a coma. But thats not for trying. She screams at doctors and her sister-in-law Sarah, a police officer, whos trying to piece together the puzzle of how the fire started. As Grace watches, police take one wrong turn after another. Shes desperate to tell them what she knows that the fire was no accident and that the target was Jenny. Then the worst news of all reaches her. Her daughters heart is failing. Unless she receives a transplant she has only weeks to live. After years of marriage Grace can easily read her husbands face: As soon as I see your face, I know that no heart has been found for her. I go close to you and you tell me that theres time. Its still going to be all right. Not to be defeatist! She will get better. So in this novel thriller meets family drama. There are plenty of red herrings to keep you engaged trying to figure out who among a bevy of characters is the sinister arsonist. And the message seems clear. People and situations are not always the way they appear. The ending is meant to be a surprise but is actually fairly predictable. For many this book will fall outside their comfort reading zone. But if youre looking for an entirely different reading experience, this might be your cup of tea.

Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Community calendar More on Page 7 BY TONY YOUNG To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game but spending quality time outdoors with friends and family. One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. Thats why the FWC created its SpecialOpportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the states best public dove fields. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds each. There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields (Caravelle Ranch has six), and all hunts are from noon until sunset and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 6 and ending Jan. 5. Last year, 1,421 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants last year took an average of nearly six birds per hunter, per day, harvesting 601 birds! North Newberry PSGHA, in Alachua County, has 15 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field produced 135 doves for nearly a two-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Another field, Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County, has a 200-acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 73 doves were harvested there. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58 acres. Hunters there last season took 107 doves. Frog Pond North PSGHA in MiamiDade County has been a top producer in past years, and 201 birds were taken there last season, for nearly a two-birds-perhunter, per-day average. Fifteen Dove Club permits are available to hunt its 50 acres. The remaining special-opportunity dove field is Koon Farm in Lafayette County. There will be 13 Dove Club permits available to hunt on its 40 acres. Hunters took 304 birds there last season for nearly a five-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/License and clicking on Limited Entry/Quota Hunts, you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet (with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in at any county tax collectors office, license agent or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field. If you are successful in getting drawn, you must pick up and pay for your Dove Club permit at any of the same places mentioned above by July 31. Check for drawing results in mid-July at MyFWC.com/License, again by clicking Limited Entry/Quota Hunts. Any applicant who provides an email address will be notified by the FWC by email if drawn. Brochures on each of these areas are available online at MyFWC.com/Dove. Also at that Web address, beginning in late September, hunters will be able to find the most up-to-date information on these six special-opportunity dove fields, as well as Floridas other public dove fields. The website is updated every Thursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and field conditions. So if youd like to join the FWCs Dove Club, you need to try to do so in July. Remember to introduce someone new to hunting when you can. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and well see you in the woods! "Outta' the Woods" is a column highlighting the latest hunting opportunities in Florida. Written by Tony Young, Media Relations Coordinator for the Division of Hunting and Game Management, the column provides valuable information to novice hunters and those new to hunting Florida.

I n June credit ratings of 15 of the worlds largest banks were lowered because their future profitability and growth are questionable. Here at Pun Alley we hope you have some interest in the humor and its not questionable. Ah so! The credit ratings reduction has really hit Japan. Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal. Perfect balanceAfter the tightrope walker completed his hazardous walk a fan asked him, I want to be a tightrope walker. What equipment do I need? The tightrope walker replied, Very flexible shoes, two towers, a wire, a pole and a bank book. I understand the shoes, towers, wire and pole, but whats the bank book for? inquired the man. To check your balance, of course. SafetyAn out-of-work man decided to rob a bank. Borrowing a friends van he drove to a small county bank late one dark moonless night and picked the lock on the rear door of the bank without difficulty, but the alarm sounded. He quickly loaded the banks small safe onto a furniture dolly he had brought along and loaded it into the van. He drove to his friends house and explained his problem. He asked if, in exchange for some of the loot, he might store the safe in the garage for a few days. The friend assured him: You can rest assured, your safe is secret with me. Two bitsA record number of bank failures have left America with a nationwide shortage of flimsy toaster ovens, cheap pocket calculators, and ugly dinnerware. Old bankers never die; they just lose interest. Some banks charge incredibly high interest rates. You can tell those because the TV camera that takes pictures of robbers is aimed at the loan officer. One dumb guy thinks a pole vault is a bank safe in Warsaw. Banking is just like our government a system of checks and balances. If you want to cash a check, you have to have a balance. A musician robbed the bank and made off with the lute. I went to the bank the other day. I asked the banker to check my balance, so he pushed me. I hear youre really going after the guy who robbed the bank yesterday. You bet. If he wanted to steal, why didnt he work his way up in the bank like I did. Float a loan John went to his bank to refinance a loan on his yacht. Making small talk with the loan officer, he told her that she was the main reason he came to that branch. Not even looking up from her paperwork, the loan officer responded, You dont fool me, sailor. Ill bet you have a woman in every bank.Missing A woman went into the small bank and noticed there was a new face behind the window. Has the teller gone away to take a rest? she inquired. No, replied the new man, hes gone away to avoid it. No competition Not having a job, Don bought a hotdog cart and set it up in a prime spot on a busy downtown corner, right near a large bank. One day his friend Jim approached and asked if he would lend him some money. Don refused. But why? asked Jim. Everyone knows youre doing well and Im not asking for much. Well, Jim, in order to get this spot, I had to sign a non-competition agreement with that bank over there. According to the terms of the agreement, they dont sell hot dogs and I dont lend money.Silver? A woman went to the bank to arrange for a loan. Im sorry, maam, the teller told her, but the loan arranger is out to lunch. Thats OK, said the woman. Can I speak to Tonto then?

A recent wave of missing seniors has families across the nation on alert for elderly loved ones who are more mobile and active in warm weather and get separated, disoriented or in the worst case, lost and cant find their way home. This is especially worrisome in the summer heat when seniors can become quickly dehydrated. The warm and bright summer days can be alluring and dangerous for the elderly and thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home care companies for seniors, with caregivers in our area, has launched the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan. Its a powerful checklist for families to follow if their elderly loved one gets separated or lost. Every day we care for thousands of elderly people and as the weather heats up we see a huge rise in the number of seniors getting separated, disoriented or even downright lost, says Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers, an in-home senior care company with highly trained caregivers specializing in dementia and Alzheimers care. Thats why we started the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan to make sure seniors have a way to get out of a jam and to give families piece of mind. If families dont live nearby, we suggest they hire a caregiver to implement this action plan to help watch over their elderly loved one. How Seniors Get LostDriving and forgetting directions or they cant find their destination. They make it to their destination but then cant find their car in the parking lot. Plan to meet at a familiar place and then cant find it. Go with family members and friends to a place and then get separated and/or lost. Wander or drive away from home and get completely lost this is especially a problem with the elderly with dementia and/or Alzheimers. Of the 5 million people who suffer from Alzheimers, 60 percent of them will wander and become lost at some point during the disease. And sadly, of those who are lost for more than 72 hours, 80 percent never make it home. Senior Lost and Found Action Plan Give your senior a Smart phone and create an If Im Lost folder on the home screen in the folder, include the seniors family and caregiver numbers, 911, a cab company phone number, and the seniors home address. Install a GPS tracking system on the seniors cell phone make sure they have one for their car and they know how to use it. Make a plastic laminate card with all pertinent information place this in your seniors wallet and attach it to their car visor. Have your senior wear an ID bracelet they come in very fashionable designs. For Seniors With Dementia and AlzheimersConsider disguising the doors in your home painting or hanging posters on the inside of doors to disguise them as bookshelves or other furniture can often deter a senior from attempting to walk out. Install door chimes on all entry doors this alerts those at home whenever a door is opened. This comes in handy especially in a two level home. Security systems also offer this type of alarm. Alert your local authorities of the RISK of wandering many local police stations maintain an Alzheimers and dementia patient registry. Caregivers provide personal information that would be critical in a search and rescue effort, such as name, height, weight, etc Caregivers should keep a list of previous homes, occupations this is helpful if authorities need to search for a senior. Elderly with Alzheimers tend to recall former homes, occupations and other milestones as though they are present day. Some seniors with dementia are wandering in attempt to return to their roots. Utilize personal tracking devices consider buying GPS devices that seniors can wear around their ankles, wrists or even in their shoes. Committeeman who earlier hosted a fundraiser for Frank Bruno, are among those attending the national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, the first week in September. Bruce Seaman of Awake Marion and Nancy Noonan of Marions United for Public Education implored everyone not to ignore the Aug. 14 primary because the two initiatives concerning the school system need our support in order to give our teachers and our students the resources they need. Herman H. Brown, vice chairman of the newly resurrected Oak Run Democratic Club, announced that the group will meet at the Orchid Club at 7 p.m. July 19, and Sally said that tickets for the annual dinner at the Hilton Sept. 9 are now available. In a moving ceremony, Ed Mottl, husband of the late Georgette Mottl, former DEC chairman who died last February, was presented with a personal letter of condolence from Vice President Joe Biden and an autographed photo of Georgette with Mr. Biden in Washington, D.C. This surprise was arranged by Nora Travieso. Landers, 42 year old Dean of Students at Reddick-Collier Elementary School, concluded that with the opening of our more modern and accessible site, we intend to become a resource for everyone who is committed to working for the common good. This includes the over 80,000 registered Democrats as well as those among the 40,000 independents in this county who seek to build an informed and prosperous community which offers equal opportunity for everyone while respecting and rejoicing in our cultural political and religious diversity, Call 352-402-9494, email info@mariondems.org or visit www.mariondems.org, or contact Joyce Blake at 352-690-1746.

She has two daughters who graduated from the Marion County School System, one is a nurse and the other a dentist. She pledges to bring professionalism back to the School Board meetings. In the County Commission races, incumbent Mike Amsden and challenger Jeff Gold spoke. Amsden told the audience that he has spent 3 years listening to you, serving you. He also spoke of the need to work together, noting that it takes three votes to pass anything. If you dont have two more votes, you cant accomplish anything. Gold, who has worked with both the Sheriffs Office and the Fire Department, said, Im doing this to try to help the community. He said he understands the working of the budget, and there are going to have to be intelligent cuts. Incumbent Stan McClain faces a challenge in the primary from David Moore, but Moore did not attend the meeting. McClain told the crowd that it was a real honor to serve all of you. He says he tries to make sure the county is fiscally responsible. Further, he says that some decisions do not sit well with some folks, but theyre good for the taxpayers. He pointed to the energy savings and to the long-term solution for solid waste that has been accomplished. All candidates, in response to a question, said they were in favor of the prayer continuing before the meetings. Amsden said he was willing to fight for it, but not with the taxpayers money. Its up to the churches, the sleeping giants. Theyll have our backs. The residency issue, which was raised several weeks ago, came up as Gabriel spoke. She said she would move from her current Preserve home, which is not in District 5 because of new maps, possibly to the On Top of the World, which is in that district. We will not leave the 200 Corridor, she said emphatically, saying she has been there for 16 years.

How to protect wandering seniors Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Florida KidCare is enrolling families every day and United Way of Marion County has joined a statewide effort to help more uninsured children receive health care at a price their families can afford through Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctors visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. Were in contact with these families regularly and it makes sense to use these opportunities to share information about Florida KidCare and encourage families to complete the application for this quality healthcare program. Since it began in 1998, Florida KidCare has offered working families access to high-quality doctors and preventative care for their children at an affordable cost. Florida KidCare currently serves nearly 1.4 million children. For more information call Chris Cotter at 352-732-9696. United Way urges families with uninsured children to apply for Florida KidCare benefits Marion County is definitely on the map when it comes to ways to engage our youngest citizens.

BY MELINDA MYERS Dont let summer stressors ruin your landscapes good looks. Instead give your plants natural defenses a boost and keep both vegetable gardens producing and flowers blooming. Busy summer schedules can lead to plant neglect and less-than-picture-perfect gardens. When you team this with summer heat and drought that can lead to wilting, brown leaves, and poor growth, and add insects and diseases that can further weaken and damage plants, gardens can really suffer. An exciting new organic tool for gardeners is now available to help. Plant strengtheners, like JAZ sprays, help boost plants natural defenses so they are better able to deal with environmental stress, neglect, as well as insects and disease attacks. Scientists found that when plants experienced stress from drought, temperature extremes, insects or diseases they produced certain molecules that activated their natural defenses. They isolated these molecules, applied them to other plants, and found that the treated plants were better able to tolerate stress. Plant strengtheners contain such molecules that increase natural defenses in plants. One such family of molecules is the jasmonates, originally identified in the jasmine plant, that increases hundreds of natural defense molecules in treated plants. Some of the natural defenses make the plants more resistant to pathogens and others help reduce damage from drought, heat and salt. While proper care can help increase a plants natural defenses, plant strengtheners give them an extra boost to help plants thrive even during periods of environmental stress. These organic products act like vitamins or immunizations, helping plants deal with extreme and often unpredictable weather, pest, and disease challenges. You can even keep healthy plants performing their best by proactively using a plant strengthener. By doing so, youll boost a plants immune system before environmental stresses hit and ultimately help it thrive as it faces serious challenges throughout the remainder of the season. Its a great way to protect plants before they become threatened. Make sure to give your plants proper care throughout their lifetime. Water thoroughly and as needed. Then mulch the soil surrounding your plants with shredded leaves, evergreen needles, or other organic materials. These conserve moisture, keep roots cool and moist, suppress weeds, and improve the soil as they break down. And, if your plants experience the same problems each year, it is time to make a change. Move stressed plants to more suitable growing conditions. Match the plant to the light, soil, and moisture it prefers. Replace diseased plants with resistant varieties and provide proper care. By taking these steps and investing a bit of time and energy youll be sure to create a beautiful, healthy and productive landscape.

We want families to use everyday outingsincluding trips to the Born Learning Trail to support that learning.

Skills Gap Forum postponed by Debby set for next week At an open house on July 2, Reginald E. Landers, Jr., chairman of the Democratic Party of Marion County, welcomed a steady stream of visitors to the partys new headquarters at 601 S.W. First Ave. The stand-alone brick building is almost directly across the street from Ocalas main post office about five blocks southwest of the Ocala Town Square. The donkey kicking up its heels on the wonderful sign outside designed by our talented and tireless events coordinator Sally Smith shows how fired up and ready to go we are as we work to keep President Obama in the White House and secure the election as well of our excellent area candidates, Landers said at a meeting of the Democratic Executive Committee following the open house at which he also saluted the outstanding contributions of Joyce Blake, John Hickey, John Moxley and Gary Smith in making the move a reality. Candidates present included Frank Bruno, who is running for Florida State Senate, Judge Cochran, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections, and Woody Clymer, non-partisan candidate for school board. Keith Ferguson, field director of the Obama for America campaign, and Benjamin Cuebas, head of the Young Democrats, delighted the audience with their enthusiasm but no one made a more fervent call to action than Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committeewoman and leader of Marion Countys Democratic Coordinated Campaign. Joyce repeatedly exhorted attendees to call her directly at 690-1746 in order to volunteer for voter registration and precinct and vote building training.

Miller and Associates, were scheduled to take place last month in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties but several had to be rescheduled when Tropical Storm Debby threatened the area. Employers and/or their representatives are invited to take part in any or all of the industry sector forums: Monday, July 16 at the College of Central Floridas Klein Conference Center, 3001 S.W.

Skills Gap Forum postponed by Debby set for next week At an open house on July 2, Reginald E. Landers, Jr., chairman of the Democratic Party of Marion County, welcomed a steady stream of visitors to the partys new headquarters at 601 S.W. First Ave. The stand-alone brick building is almost directly across the street from Ocalas main post office about five blocks southwest of the Ocala Town Square. The donkey kicking up its heels on the wonderful sign outside designed by our talented and tireless events coordinator Sally Smith shows how fired up and ready to go we are as we work to keep President Obama in the White House and secure the election as well of our excellent area candidates, Landers said at a meeting of the Democratic Executive Committee following the open house at which he also saluted the outstanding contributions of Joyce Blake, John Hickey, John Moxley and Gary Smith in making the move a reality. Candidates present included Frank Bruno, who is running for Florida State Senate, Judge Cochran, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections, and Woody Clymer, non-partisan candidate for school board. Keith Ferguson, field director of the Obama for America campaign, and Benjamin Cuebas, head of the Young Democrats, delighted the audience with their enthusiasm but no one made a more fervent call to action than Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committeewoman and leader of Marion Countys Democratic Coordinated Campaign. Joyce repeatedly exhorted attendees to call her directly at 690-1746 in order to volunteer for voter registration and precinct and vote building training.

BY MELINDA MYERS Dont let summer stressors ruin your landscapes good looks. Instead give your plants natural defenses a boost and keep both vegetable gardens producing and flowers blooming. Busy summer schedules can lead to plant neglect and less-than-picture-perfect gardens. When you team this with summer heat and drought that can lead to wilting, brown leaves, and poor growth, and add insects and diseases that can further weaken and damage plants, gardens can really suffer. An exciting new organic tool for gardeners is now available to help. Plant strengtheners, like JAZ sprays, help boost plants natural defenses so they are better able to deal with environmental stress, neglect, as well as insects and disease attacks. Scientists found that when plants experienced stress from drought, temperature extremes, insects or diseases they produced certain molecules that activated their natural defenses. They isolated these molecules, applied them to other plants, and found that the treated plants were better able to tolerate stress. Plant strengtheners contain such molecules that increase natural defenses in plants. One such family of molecules is the jasmonates, originally identified in the jasmine plant, that increases hundreds of natural defense molecules in treated plants. Some of the natural defenses make the plants more resistant to pathogens and others help reduce damage from drought, heat and salt. While proper care can help increase a plants natural defenses, plant strengtheners give them an extra boost to help plants thrive even during periods of environmental stress. These organic products act like vitamins or immunizations, helping plants deal with extreme and often unpredictable weather, pest, and disease challenges. You can even keep healthy plants performing their best by proactively using a plant strengthener. By doing so, youll boost a plants immune system before environmental stresses hit and ultimately help it thrive as it faces serious challenges throughout the remainder of the season. Its a great way to protect plants before they become threatened. Make sure to give your plants proper care throughout their lifetime. Water thoroughly and as needed. Then mulch the soil surrounding your plants with shredded leaves, evergreen needles, or other organic materials. These conserve moisture, keep roots cool and moist, suppress weeds, and improve the soil as they break down. And, if your plants experience the same problems each year, it is time to make a change. Move stressed plants to more suitable growing conditions. Match the plant to the light, soil, and moisture it prefers. Replace diseased plants with resistant varieties and provide proper care. By taking these steps and investing a bit of time and energy youll be sure to create a beautiful, healthy and productive landscape.Nationally known gardening expert, TV/radio host, author & columnist Melinda Myers has more than 30 years of horticulture experience and has written over 20 gardening books, including Cant Miss Small Space Gardening.

A recent wave of missing seniors has families across the nation on alert for elderly loved ones who are more mobile and active in warm weather and get separated, disoriented or in the worst case, lost and cant find their way home. This is especially worrisome in the summer heat when seniors can become quickly dehydrated. The warm and bright summer days can be alluring and dangerous for the elderly and thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home care companies for seniors, with caregivers in our area, has launched the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan. Its a powerful checklist for families to follow if their elderly loved one gets separated or lost. Every day we care for thousands of elderly people and as the weather heats up we see a huge rise in the number of seniors getting separated, disoriented or even downright lost, says Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers, an in-home senior care company with highly trained caregivers specializing in dementia and Alzheimers care. Thats why we started the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan to make sure seniors have a way to get out of a jam and to give families piece of mind. If families dont live nearby, we suggest they hire a caregiver to implement this action plan to help watch over their elderly loved one.How Seniors Get LostDriving and forgetting directions or they cant find their destination. They make it to their destination but then cant find their car in the parking lot. Plan to meet at a familiar place and then cant find it. Go with family members and friends to a place and then get separated and/or lost. Wander or drive away from home and get completely lost this is especially a problem with the elderly with dementia and/or Alzheimers. Of the 5 million people who suffer from Alzheimers, 60 percent of them will wander and become lost at some point during the disease. And sadly, of those who are lost for more than 72 hours, 80 percent never make it home. Senior Lost and Found Action PlanGive your senior a Smart phone and create an If Im Lost folder on the home screen in the folder, include the seniors family and caregiver numbers, 911, a cab company phone number, and the seniors home address. Install a GPS tracking system on the seniors cell phone make sure they have one for their car and they know how to use it. Make a plastic laminate card with all pertinent information place this in your seniors wallet and attach it to their car visor. Have your senior wear an ID bracelet they come in very fashionable designs.For Seniors With Dementia and AlzheimersConsider disguising the doors in your home painting or hanging posters on the inside of doors to disguise them as bookshelves or other furniture can often deter a senior from attempting to walk out. Install door chimes on all entry doors this alerts those at home whenever a door is opened. This comes in handy especially in a two level home. Security systems also offer this type of alarm. Alert your local authorities of the RISK of wandering many local police stations maintain an Alzheimers and dementia patient registry. Caregivers provide personal information that would be critical in a search and rescue effort, such as name, height, weight, etc Caregivers should keep a list of previous homes, occupations this is helpful if authorities need to search for a senior. Elderly with Alzheimers tend to recall former homes, occupations and other milestones as though they are present day. Some seniors with dementia are wandering in attempt to return to their roots. Utilize personal tracking devices consider buying GPS devices that seniors can wear around their ankles, wrists or even in their shoes. Committeeman who earlier hosted a fundraiser for Frank Bruno, are among those attending the national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, the first week in September. Bruce Seaman of Awake Marion and Nancy Noonan of Marions United for Public Education implored everyone not to ignore the Aug. 14 primary because the two initiatives concerning the school system need our support in order to give our teachers and our students the resources they need. Herman H. Brown, vice chairman of the newly resurrected Oak Run Democratic Club, announced that the group will meet at the Orchid Club at 7 p.m. July 19, and Sally said that tickets for the annual dinner at the Hilton Sept. 9 are now available. In a moving ceremony, Ed Mottl, husband of the late Georgette Mottl, former DEC chairman who died last February, was presented with a personal letter of condolence from Vice President Joe Biden and an autographed photo of Georgette with Mr. Biden in Washington, D.C. This surprise was arranged by Nora Travieso. Landers, 42 year old Dean of Students at Reddick-Collier Elementary School, concluded that with the opening of our more modern and accessible site, we intend to become a resource for everyone who is committed to working for the common good. This includes the over 80,000 registered Democrats as well as those among the 40,000 independents in this county who seek to build an informed and prosperous community which offers equal opportunity for everyone while respecting and rejoicing in our cultural political and religious diversity, Call 352-402-9494, email info@mariondems.org or visit www.mariondems.org, or contact Joyce Blake at 352-690-1746.

She has two daughters who graduated from the Marion County School System, one is a nurse and the other a dentist. She pledges to bring professionalism back to the School Board meetings. In the County Commission races, incumbent Mike Amsden and challenger Jeff Gold spoke. Amsden told the audience that he has spent 3 years listening to you, serving you. He also spoke of the need to work together, noting that it takes three votes to pass anything. If you dont have two more votes, you cant accomplish anything. Gold, who has worked with both the Sheriffs Office and the Fire Department, said, Im doing this to try to help the community. He said he understands the working of the budget, and there are going to have to be intelligent cuts. Incumbent Stan McClain faces a challenge in the primary from David Moore, but Moore did not attend the meeting. McClain told the crowd that it was a real honor to serve all of you. He says he tries to make sure the county is fiscally responsible. Further, he says that some decisions do not sit well with some folks, but theyre good for the taxpayers. He pointed to the energy savings and to the long-term solution for solid waste that has been accomplished. All candidates, in response to a question, said they were in favor of the prayer continuing before the meetings. Amsden said he was willing to fight for it, but not with the taxpayers money. Its up to the churches, the sleeping giants. Theyll have our backs. The residency issue, which was raised several weeks ago, came up as Gabriel spoke. She said she would move from her current Preserve home, which is not in District 5 because of new maps, possibly to the On Top of the World, which is in that district. We will not leave the 200 Corridor, she said emphatically, saying she has been there for 16 years. She also spoke of her work as a volunteer with the emergency medical task force and parks and fire advisory boards. I want to keep working for the citizens of Marion County. We need balance on the County Commission. She added about the financial situation, Were going to have to be very streamlined.

How to protect wandering seniors Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Florida KidCare is enrolling families every day and United Way of Marion County has joined a statewide effort to help more uninsured children receive health care at a price their families can afford through Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctors visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. Were in contact with these families regularly and it makes sense to use these opportunities to share information about Florida KidCare and encourage families to complete the application for this quality healthcare program. Since it began in 1998, Florida KidCare has offered working families access to high-quality doctors and preventative care for their children at an affordable cost. Florida KidCare currently serves nearly 1.4 million children. For more information call Chris Cotter at 352-732-9696. United Way urges families with uninsured children to apply for Florida KidCare benefits Marion County is definitely on the map when it comes to ways to engage our youngest citizens.

In June credit ratings of 15 of the worlds largest banks were lowered because their future profitability and growth are questionable. Here at Pun Alley we hope you have some interest in the humor and its not questionable.Ah so!The credit ratings reduction has really hit Japan. Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.Perfect balanceAfter the tightrope walker completed his hazardous walk a fan asked him, I want to be a tightrope walker. What equipment do I need? The tightrope walker replied, Very flexible shoes, two towers, a wire, a pole and a bank book. I understand the shoes, towers, wire and pole, but whats the bank book for? inquired the man. To check your balance, of course. SafetyAn out-of-work man decided to rob a bank. Borrowing a friends van he drove to a small county bank late one dark moonless night and picked the lock on the rear door of the bank without difficulty, but the alarm sounded. He quickly loaded the banks small safe onto a furniture dolly he had brought along and loaded it into the van. He drove to his friends house and explained his problem. He asked if, in exchange for some of the loot, he might store the safe in the garage for a few days. The friend assured him: You can rest assured, your safe is secret with me.Two bitsA record number of bank failures have left America with a nationwide shortage of flimsy toaster ovens, cheap pocket calculators, and ugly dinnerware. Old bankers never die; they just lose interest. Some banks charge incredibly high interest rates. You can tell those because the TV camera that takes pictures of robbers is aimed at the loan officer. One dumb guy thinks a pole vault is a bank safe in Warsaw. Banking is just like our government a system of checks and balances. If you want to cash a check, you have to have a balance. A musician robbed the bank and made off with the lute. I went to the bank the other day. I asked the banker to check my balance, so he pushed me. I hear youre really going after the guy who robbed the bank yesterday. You bet. If he wanted to steal, why didnt he work his way up in the bank like I did. Float a loanJohn went to his bank to refinance a loan on his yacht. Making small talk with the loan officer, he told her that she was the main reason he came to that branch. Not even looking up from her paperwork, the loan officer responded, You dont fool me, sailor. Ill bet you have a woman in every bank.MissingA woman went into the small bank and noticed there was a new face behind the window. Has the teller gone away to take a rest? she inquired. No, replied the new man, hes gone away to avoid it. No competitionNot having a job, Don bought a hotdog cart and set it up in a prime spot on a busy downtown corner, right near a large bank. One day his friend Jim approached and asked if he would lend him some money. Don refused. But why? asked Jim. Everyone knows youre doing well and Im not asking for much. Well, Jim, in order to get this spot, I had to sign a non-competition agreement with that bank over there. According to the terms of the agreement, they dont sell hot dogs and I dont lend money.Silver?A woman went to the bank to arrange for a loan. Im sorry, maam, the teller told her, but the loan arranger is out to lunch. Thats OK, said the woman. Can I speak to Tonto then?

One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. Thats why the FWC created its SpecialOpportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the states best public dove fields. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds each. There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields (Caravelle Ranch has six), and all hunts are from noon until sunset and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 6 and ending Jan. 5. Last year, 1,421 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants last year took an average of nearly six birds per hunter, per day, harvesting 601 birds! North Newberry PSGHA, in Alachua County, has 15 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field produced 135 doves for nearly a two-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Another field, Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County, has a 200-acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 73 doves were harvested there. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58 acres. Hunters there last season took 107 doves. Frog Pond North PSGHA in MiamiDade County has been a top producer in past years, and 201 birds were taken there last season, for nearly a two-birds-perhunter, per-day average. Fifteen Dove Club permits are available to hunt its 50 acres. The remaining special-opportunity dove field is Koon Farm in Lafayette County. There will be 13 Dove Club permits available to hunt on its 40 acres. Hunters took 304 birds there last season for nearly a five-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/License and clicking on Limited Entry/Quota Hunts, you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet (with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in at any county tax collectors office, license agent or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field. If you are successful in getting drawn, you must pick up and pay for your Dove Club permit at any of the same places mentioned above by July 31. Check for drawing results in mid-July at MyFWC.com/License, again by clicking Limited Entry/Quota Hunts. Any applicant who provides an email address will be notified by the FWC by email if drawn. Brochures on each of these areas are available online at MyFWC.com/Dove. Also at that Web address, beginning in late September, hunters will be able to find the most up-to-date information on these six special-opportunity dove fields, as well as Floridas other public dove fields. The website is updated every Thursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and field conditions. So if youd like to join the FWCs Dove Club, you need to try to do so in July. Remember to introduce someone new to hunting when you can. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and well see you in the woods!"Outta' the Woods" is a column highlighting the latest hunting opportunities in Florida.

Storms, shipwrecks, sorcery, and Shakespeare abound this summer as Ocala Civic Theatre presents a youth production of The Tempest on Aug. 3 and 4. The production will be directed by classically trained New York director and drama teacher Jordan Jones. Jones, who has a BFA in theatre from the University of Connecticut, also studied in London and trained at Shakespeares Globe Theater. This will not be the youth version of The Tempest, but instead will be the original Shakespeare (though abridged), with a running time of about 90 minutes. The cast of 20 will consist of students age 10 and older. Jackie Osterman, director of education, chose to incorporate Shakespeare into the youth curriculum because she wanted to teach students the importance of the classics and their relevance to modern life. I think every theatre student needs to be exposed to everything from classical to contemporary theatre, Osterman said. I heard kids saying, We cant do Shakespeare or Its boring. Shakespeare is exciting and interesting. The stories are fantastic. There isnt a sitcom today that doesnt owe a plot element to Shakespeare. Jones, having seen the youth production of Robin Hood this spring, felt that The Tempest would be a good match for Ocala Civic Theatre students. His hunch seems to be correct so far; class enrollment is already full. Set on a mythical island, The Tempests cast of characters includes Prospero the magician, his daughter Miranda, the mischievous spirit Ariel, and the villainous Caliban. It is an epic tale of adventure, full of witches, monsters, kings, goddesses, jesters, jealous brothers, romance, treachery, royal weddings, sea nymphs, enchanted trees, and magic spells. If Harry Potter and Shakespeare met, this is what you would have, said Osterman. Like the Harry Potter books, The Tempest has a darker side. This is a play about love, bitterness, regret, and time lost, Jones said. Prospero has shielded his daughter Miranda from the outside world her entire life because he knows that all the magic in the world cant protect his daughter from the cruelty of humanity. Jones envisions a sixteenth-century Caribbean or New World/Spanish colonial look for the minimalist set, which will rely heavily on lighting and sound effects to create the plays magical atmosphere. Costumes will be a mix of traditional and contemporary, and the set will be a non-literal interpretation of the iconic storm and shipwreck which brings several characters to the island. The otherworldly mood will be evoked by thunder and colorful lights, in rich hues of blue, green, gold, red, and orange. Performances of The Tempest will be Friday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are $10 for adults, $6 for students, and $5 for Marion Players. For more information, call the box office at 352-236-2274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com. Ocala Civic Theatre is at 4337 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (East State Road 40) in the Appleton Cultural Center. The theatre produces more than 12 fully staged, professional-quality live performances each season and also hosts touring companies. The Ocala Civic Theatre is volunteer-based and is one of the largest community theatres in the state, serving more than 70,000 Marion, Citrus and Lake County residents each season. Civic Theatre to present youth production of The Tempest A FTER W ARDS B y R osamund L upton In Afterwards British author Lupton transports readers to another world thats part real and part supernatural. Grace, the comatose narrator, tells the story of a catastrophic fire at her 8-year-old son Adams school. It is sports day and everyone is thought to be outside. However, thats not the case because Graces 17-year-old daughter Jenny is inside acting as school nurse for the day. Without thinking Grace rushes to her aid. The first few chapters are confusing until we realize the conversation she seems to be having with her husband is unheard by him. Grace can only communicate with her daughter who is also in a coma. But thats not for trying. She screams at doctors and her sister-in-law Sarah, a police officer, whos trying to piece together the puzzle of how the fire started. As Grace watches, police take one wrong turn after another. Shes desperate to tell them what she knows that the fire was no accident and that the target was Jenny. Then the worst news of all reaches her. Her daughters heart is failing. Unless she receives a transplant she has only weeks to live. After years of marriage Grace can easily read her husbands face: As soon as I see your face, I know that no heart has been found for her. I go close to you and you tell me that theres time. Its still going to be all right. Not to be defeatist! She will get better. So in this novel thriller meets family drama. There are plenty of red herrings to keep you engaged trying to figure out who among a bevy of characters is the sinister arsonist. And the message seems clear. People and situations are not always the way they appear. The ending is meant to be a surprise but is actually fairly predictable. For many this book will fall outside their comfort reading zone. But if youre looking for an entirely different reading experience, this might be your cup of tea.

Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Everyone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting reelected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlewww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 13, 2012 Triskaidekaphobia. Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of todays date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (A-rod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

So for a few weeks, the many Social Security recipients in the area will have to do without a local office. It seems that Tropical Storm Debby flooded out the building just south of the Square in Ocala and it had to be shut down. But thats not the issue. The question is why Social Security didnt have a Plan B in operation to keep local services, pardon the pun, flowing. The Social Security office is moving into a new building on East Silver Springs Boulevard at about the 1000 block. Construction has been under way for several months, and officials said the building should be ready next month. You can see the progress in an accompanying photo. But what if a new building wasnt already under construction? What would the folks at Social Security have done? Continue sending people to Gainesville and Leesburg? Government people say that most Social Security services can be done online, that there is no need for many people to go to the office. But just go into the office on any weekday and youll find a full waiting room of people, many of them elderly or disabled, waiting to talk to a representative. Arent Social Security officials aware that many people who receive their services dont have access to a computer, or have only limited knowledge of the operation of the Internet? While the government was a little unlucky with the timing of the shutdown, just a couple of months before the new building was ready, it was indeed fortunate that the new building is almost ready. This time, people should be told what will happen if an emergency strikes. The thousands of recipients in the Ocala area deserve to know that officials care enough to keep the services coming. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Social Security: No plan B? Triskaidekaphobia, Parskevidekatriaphobia Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Supreme Court has spoken! Whats next? Who is Jackie Porter?It seems a day cant go by without someone condemning her for being a candidate for Marion County superintendent of schools. Many have the opinion that no one could possibly handle the responsibilities of that job without having a college degree or better. While I have the utmost respect for anyone who holds such degrees, they dont mean the person is qualified for any particular position, especially one of leadership/management. On the flip side, not having one doesnt mean the person isnt qualified. I prefer to look at qualifications based on a broad range of abilities and experience along with a very close look at who they are as individuals. This means what they stand for, what guides their decisions and what visions they have for our future. In other words, just who they really are. Her stated number one goal is to improve our dismal record of being in 44th place of the 67 counties. She sees us in the top 20! This low rating causes me to think that what we have been doing in our schools is not working out very well. With this in mind, maybe its time to have someone making important decisions that has the ability to think outside the box Some minimize her business experience in managing a successful business for some 20 years. This in itself is an amazing accomplishment! Anyone who has ever served in a management position knows excellent leadership and fiscal skills are necessary to accomplish this feat. Small business owners have always been the strength of our economy, providing the majority of jobs in our private sector. To be successful they must have business and people skills. I have the privilege of knowing Jackie personally and have always been impressed with her and her value system. Her virtues are many: honesty, love of God, loyalty, dedication to excellence, high character, self discipline, and love of our country. She desires to have discipline in Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN, PAGE21 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThe new Social Security office being built on East Silver Springs Boulevard.

When he was discharged, Al and Pia moved to Maryland, where Al was from originally. He took a position with Western Union in their aerospace communications division and Pia found work with the Bank of America. After their retirement, Pia and Al moved to Cape Coral, Florida, where Pia took work with Bank of America again. For economic reasons, they decided to move and found out about Cherrywood from friends. That was in 2001 and they loved this community then and Pia still loves it now. A couple of years ago, after 53 years of marriage, Al passed away. It was at that time that Pia realized how close a community could be. Her eyes tear up when she speaks of the kindness of friends and neighbors during that horrible time. Whether its riding her bike; playing bocce ball; going to Trivia or attending the many other functions here at Cherrywood, Pia is active and enjoys the abiding love and respect of her friends and neighbors. A ready smile and quick wit are hallmarks of her personality. She has endured the tragedies of her youth; the hardships of an uncertain world and survived with a stellar personality. Two daughters, Linda and Pam, and four grandchildren fill Pia with pride as she speaks of them. Linda lives in Myrtle Beach and Pam lives in Richmond, Virginia. They keep in close touch and see each other as often as possible. If you dont know Pia, youre missing a great treat. Introduce yourself to her and experience the joy that comes from knowing this special lady.

When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs.

Wayne Rackley OcalaLuster keeps dimmingOur beloved America is not the shining gem and envy of the world she once was ... and her luster keeps dimming. Americans cant find jobs; many are experiencing financial loss; our economy is in shambles; religion is being cast aside; family-values are disintegrating. Yet this administration seems not to care; it makes little effort to correct these problems; it doesnt even suggest realistic ways to fix them: This administration has mostly ignored the wishes of the American people. Now, the courts are doing the same: many of their rulings are based more on political-ideology than reality. America is becoming an entitlement-society: give free stuff to the people ... even those who dont need it. Unless tax reform a national sales tax is implemented, the middle class LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 will help fund the new society many of the wealthy will simply find another tax-loophole to ensure their contribution is minimal; the government will borrow even more money to help pay for the it. Spend, tax, borrow! Spend, tax, borrow ... until America eventually defaults. Is that really what we want for our beloved America? If we dont make a real change on Nov. 6, that will surely be our future. Joe OHara Ocala Experience mattersAnd, when electing the next Sheriff of Marion County, true cop experience should weigh in heavy. Chris Blair is a man who had his boots on the ground as a deputy, who climbed the ranks of the department and concluded his prestigious 35-year career at the MCSO as a Major/Bureau Chief with 23 years of managerial and executive experience. His opponent, Dan Kuhn, is a lawyer who has served at the MCSO for only six years. He entered the department as an attorney, and was appointed to Chief of Staff. Just prior to the announcement of his candidacy for Sheriff, he was appointed to the position of Undersheriff. Yes, Dan completed the academy and can shoot a gun, but the ability to shoot a gun doesnt make you uniquely qualified to lead our Sheriffs Office. He has not spent even one day on the streets of Marion County protecting and serving. Chris Blair has earned the endorsements of the Ocala Fraternal Order of Police, the Marion County Fraternal Order of Police, the Police Benevolent Association, the Florida Professional Firefighters as well as the esteemed, former Marion County Sheriff, Don Moreland. As a citizen of Marion County and resident of the 200 corridor, I want to know that we have plenty of men and women on the street who are serving and protecting, and I feel better knowing that the man at the top has served in that capacity as well.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident of Cherrywood that has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we feature Pia Dean. Pia was born in Ferrara, Italy, in the region of Emilia, the third of four girls in her family. Her sisters were two years in age apart. Maria was the oldest, and then came Agnese; Pia and the baby of the family, Elena. When she was 4 years old, Pias father was assigned to Tripoli, Libya, by the Italian government. In 1937, Italy was under the control of Mussolini with Libya as one of its territories. Her father had a job in the archives department of the diplomatic corps and so he packed up his wife and children and sailed for North Africa. Pia describes how seasick she was and how she still hesitates to get on a boat. In 1940, the war was closing in on the entire world in general and North Africa in particular. Mussolini ordered all the children of government employees out of Tripoli and back to Italy. Pia and her sisters were among those children who had to leave their parents and travel unescorted across the Mediterranean. At this time, the Mediterranean Sea was filled with submarines and mines to say nothing of hostile aircraft and surface vessels. The dangers were many and the comforts few on the overloaded ship. Pia was not only seasick; she was heartsick. For the next several years, the sisters suffered the hardships of war. Pia was sent to one school along with her baby sister Elena in Cattolica, Italy, while her older sisters were separated from them and put into another so called school. At age 11, Pias sister Maria passed away from illness while at the facility. These institutions were like military schools only much stricter. Pias eyes tear up as she thinks about the misery and hardships of those years. Hunger was an ever present companion and the punishments suffered at the hands of her overseers too harsh for her to describe. An example of the cruelties she suffered came one night in particular. After the Germans took over Italy, a group of Nazis came into her dormitory room. Within minutes, all of the girls had packed their two uniforms; a blanket and pillow and were marched outside. On the roof of the institution was a large Red Cross to alert bombers that this was a non-military target. The children were marched off to the town of Finalpia to be housed for a time in a horse barn while the Nazis set up their headquarters in the old school. At wars end, Pias family was reunited. Her father found work doing the same job he had been doing before only now he was working for the British and Americans in Tripoli. Life began to improve for the family as the years went on. Pia, now 16 and fluent in reading English, took a job as a seamstress and also went to school at night to learn how to speak English. By the age of 18 she was a translator working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She half joked about the colonel she worked for commenting that he was, quite fresh. Soon she was working on a new Air Force Base in Libya called Wheelus field. It is there that she met her future husband, Alphonso. Al, as he was called, worked in communications and spoke often with Pia over the phone but had never met her. One day, Pia asked him to go out for the evening on a date. At the time he didnt know that she was just trying to make another man jealous. Pia took Al to a club where the man, Victorio, was hanging out. Victorio hated GIs and soon a fight erupted between the two men. Al won. Not only did he win the fight, he alsoFriday, July 13, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice...

Sometimes watching the news on television gets rather disparaging. Now that we have 24/7 news, not only can we see the news any time we want to, but we can see it over and over and over again. It is particularly disheartening when there is a slow news day. I think all of us can remember O.J. Simpsons mad race down a Los Angeles highway. I can remember the good old days when Uncle Walter brought us up to speed on the days news inside of a 30-minute program. Oh, for those good old days. Never has an American generation been exposed to so much and knows so little for so short a time. This all came to me recently when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching the news after our evening repast. I think it was the 9,999 times this particular news story had been played. Of course, we do not watch television that often and so we may only have seen a very short portion. The short portion that we saw was just about enough and my wife said so. It was the news story, if you remember, of the bus lady who was bullied by children. I think those children, my wife said and then paused while she grit her teeth violently, need a good old-fashioned spanking. And with that, she crossed her arms and set her face in a defiant manner. Luckily, I was not one of those children or I would have received the intentions of her mind at that point. Her comment got me to thinking. There was a time, back in the day, when spankings were rather normal. Someone once said that if you saw a young boy on the street you should stop what youre doing and give him a good spanking because he was either coming from trouble or headed for trouble. Raising children then was a community affair. I am not sure that ever took place, but it does have an authentic ring to it. I semi-fondly remember when I was a youngster I had the heebie-jeebies whaled out of me by my father on a regular basis. And I can testify that I have not missed those heebiejeebies. My life is better for not having them. Watching the video about the kids bullying that bus lady, I could not help but think that they were a rather spoiled bunch of little brats. Pardon my French. I think I would have taken it one step further than my wife. Not only do those youngsters need a good old-fashioned spanking but I think their parents do as well. Kids today are only a mirror of what they see and hear at home. When I was young, the only spoiled brats around were the children of the rich folk. They could afford to be spoiled brats because their parents with their money bought their way into society. The only thing those kids ever earned was a bad reputation and distain from the rest of us. The rest of us, having gone through the spanking rituals, could not afford to be spoiled brats. Good parents made sure of that. I think of what my father use to say. Son, Im going to take this Board of Education and apply it to the seat of your learning. I can testify that he was very enthusiastic about his job. With all that education, I have had multiple degrees on my posterior. Even to this day, every time I sit down I am reminded of that education. This Board of Education that my father was superintendent of, always hung by the door. Being the religious person that my father was, he had printed on this Board of Education the phrase from a favorite hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour. It was a motto he BY BILL FORD On Nov. 13, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln began this famous Gettysburg address, at the Gettysburg Battlefield with these above words. If you were to continue with the first paragraph of this address, you would read that, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition, that all men are created equal. This is probably the most famous address in history. I would wonder today, if any of our school children or their teachers even know of this speech. When I was in school, we had to memorize it. I dont know who will remember that Lincoln was originally a Democrat but became a Republican as the republicans were against slavery and Stephen A. Douglas became a Democrat. Four score and seven years ago from now, another Republican led us into another war, a war for financial disaster, as we were on track to the great depression. That president for those who dont remember, was Herbert Hoover. We were met upon a great battlefield of that war as well, albeit a different type of war, a financially disastrous war. Then, along came President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to save us from that debacle. He created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and Work Progress Administration (WPA), work programs to save the country. Far more effective programs than any union movement. Today just one year shy of six score years from that time, we are seven years removed from President George W. Bush leading us into a severe recession, from which we have yet to recover. Now a Democrat is trying to save this union, and no president yet, has been able to accomplish this in three short years. Lincoln saved the Union but not the economy. Just ask the southern people about the northern carpetbaggers. It took President Roosevelt five years to save our economy and save the union even through a war until his untimely death. Are you following me here? Now again I say, were seven years from the Bush debacle, and the Republicans want us to return to the years of deceit, recession and a party that led us into the 10 years war by lies, that cost thousands of dead and wounded Americans. If the Republicans had their way, we would continue our warring ways beyond the timetable set by President Obama to get out of Afghanistan. If we were to study political parties since our founding, and I have, since I was a history minor in college, we first had the Federals, then the Tories, National Republicans, Whigs, Free Soil party. I dont believe anyone will remember, the Original Republican Party was against the United States Bank. In another act, the Whigs took over the National Republican Party in 1834. This information can be found in Jesse Macys book, Political Parties of the United States, 1846-1861. So you see, its not the party stupid, its about a man, a quality president who stands for the people, not themselves. During the Greek Civil War, from 1946-1949, Thucydides wrote, the opposition parties speak the same language, but had lost the ability to understand each other. That sounds like our congress today or maybe forever. Having worked for the 92nd Congress, and lobbied two legislatures, Im convinced the members of these suffering bodies have nothing in mind but their own well being and reelection. Remember John Boehner, when he became speaker of the House of Representatives, cried and said he had wanted that position all of his life. Im probably giving you too much information here, but history could stand to repeat itself and I cant find in any annals of history, where a Republican saved the economy of America. Presidents Reagan, and George H. W. Bush were fiscally irresponsible and consequently, President Clinton saved our economy, and left office with a $7 trillion dollar surplus. But the country was steeped into a $21 trillion debt within two years of George W. Bush, becoming president and leaving the Democrats and President Obama an almost insurmountable task to restore fiscal responsibility to the country. Ah, I remember it well. Now we are met upon another great battlefield of a war to preserve the union. President Obamas health program is a target, just as was Medicare back in the 1960s by the republicans. Theirs is a real effort to divert attention from the real serious issues of health care and jobs. Jobs are coming back, but our society being an impatient one, we want it all now, not with a sound infrastructure but one built on unstable sand. To this date I have not heard one definitive plan put forward by the Republicans, i.e., Mitt Romney as to how he will solve not one alluded to problem, but to any problem. Romney says he will correct Obamas mistakes and give our economy a boost which is just a boast. Ive always adhered to old saying, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Weve had two Bushes who were for the rich and oil. Do we want a multimilloionaire who couldnt run a state or a private business to try and manage our country? I think not! Remember, history tends to repeat itself, but we cant let that happen in these times.Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com GUEST COLUMN Four Score and Seven Years Ago Read the classifieds What about old-fashioned spankings? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE12 The Veterans Club out did itself on Saturday, July 7, with an evening of first class food; entertainment and a wide variety of door prizes. A record number of veterans; their spouses and guests showed up for this event and none of them left disappointed. Lees Chicken delivered a delicious dinner of chicken; mashed potatoes & gravy; green beans and biscuits. Eve Houghtaling directed the diners while Peggy Konar coordinated the servers and thanks to their leadership, over 120 guests were served by our volunteers in less than 30 minutes. That in itself has to be a new record. At 6 p.m., Veterans Club President Bill Mahar led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance and the playing of the military service songs medley. Next, the audience joined in for the singing of Proud to be an American and that brought down the house. Throughout the evening Bill and Eve gave away more than a dozen door prizes that had been donated along with the 50/50 drawings. Shortly after 6 p.m. Kenny Jackson began the entertainment with his country western music; bright wit and unique style. Interspersed with the tunes were Kennys comedy; some great Karaoke and a few tricks along the way to bring roars of laugher and rousing applause from the crowd. Dancing and singing the night away, everyone had a great time. Kennys reputation as a deejay is well known in Marion County and Cherrywood is looking forward to his return for the August Summer Fest celebration. Marion County Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and his wife Tasha stopped by to express their appreciation to the veterans for their service and sacrifice. Fred and Marion OHern rewarded Dan with a police helmet from the London England Constabulary. Dan was very grateful for the gift and the sentiment behind it. The Veterans Club sponsored this event free of charge to veterans and their significant others. This was our way as an organization to say Thank you to our many veterans. We invite all Cherrywood veterans to join and become an active part of this great organization that sponsors many varying veterans projects and provides much needed support to our service personnel. As a closing note, the Veterans Club wants everyone to know that none of the monies gained from the cruise raffle last May was used for this event. All of that money has been and will remain, earmarked for Veterans Charities. Newcomers coffee hourOn Saturday, July 14, there will be a special coffee hour for all of Cherrywoods new residents. Our Welcoming Committee will host this event to welcome the many new people who have become part of our community this year. If you have moved into Cherrywood in the past six months or less, you are warmly invited to attend this chance to meet some of your neighbors and to receive some helpful information concerning our community and Marion County. Im confident you will find it a fun and informative time so come on out for a cup of coffee and a donut or two on us.Summer Fest100 Days of Summer Fest is in full swing and continues on July 23 with another gala event. Dinner will be served from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. at which time Rich Becotte will crank up the music that we all love to hear and dance to. Admission is free to all our residents but you do need a ticket. Guests can get their passes and tickets from Geri in the office for $12 per person. Plan to come early to insure that you get a good place to sit. There will be no reserving of seats allowed. At 6 p.m., get ready to kick up your feet and dance to the music of Rich Becotte and his wide variety of tunes. Note: Geri is going to be on vacation from July 16 through the 20th so get your tickets right away. For those of you who like to procrastinate, a Social Committee volunteer will be in the clubhouse on Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon to supply tickets. Trivia Night is comingOn July 18 at 7 p.m., Trivia Night again comes to the clubhouse. After the near record turn out of last month, we are looking for some strong competition this month as Fred OHern and Rich Hurley try to stump the teams. Our emcees put questions up on the big screen and the participating teams try their best to fill in the answers on the answer sheets provided. If you dont have a team, (usually 3 or 4 people) come on out anyway and youll be assigned one. Grab your favorite beverage and snack and join in the fun as everyone vies for bragging rights and maybe even a cash prize. Its only a dollar to play with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Fund. You cant lose by coming out; you have fun; learn a few things; support a good cause and laugh with your neighbors and friends. After their total defeat last month, the Guppies team is coming out for revenge; or at least theyll try and do a little better. Come on out and give them some friendly and challenging competition. In August there wont be a Trivia Night as the emcees need a little break but theyll be back on the third Thursday of September. Dont miss this fun time. CERT Cherrywood Emergency Management Team will hold its meeting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday the 18th. This is going to be an open meeting for those who wish to learn more about emergency preparedness and safety. Everyone is welcome and those with special needs such as mobility problems; oxygen dependency; medications that require constant refrigeration and those with limited transportation are especially urged to attend. Forms will be available to let the CERT team know your needs and allow them to meet those needs in the event of an emergency. Forms are also available from Geri in the office. CERT stands ready to assist our community during times of natural disasters; storms or civil emergencies with dependable and professional personnel and equipment. Come out to the meeting to show your support for these people and to help insure your personal safety. Geri on VacationGeri will be enjoying her granddaughters visit from the 16th until the 20th of July. Tickets for Summer Fest will available from a Social Committee volunteer in the clubhouse from 10 a.m. until noon on Monday and Tuesday only that week.Co-Ed Tai Chi/ Water Aerobics There is a slight schedule adjustment for all of our Co-Ed Tai Chi; Stretch/Yoga; and Water Aerobics students this month. On Monday, July 23, there will be no Water Aerobics at 11:30 a.m. or Tai Chi at 6:30 p.m. There will be a Stretch/Yoga class that day at 10:15 a.m. Make up date for the Water Aerobics will be Tuesday, July 24th at 11:30 a.m. The Co-Ed Tai Chi is cancelled that night because of Summer Fest. Please mark your calendars to reflect this slight schedule change. Our instructor, Dr. Deb Rivera is hoping that all of her students will be able to attend the make up session for Water Aerobics class. We are fortunate here at Cherrywood to have such a professional and dedicated fitness instructor as Deb. Her knowledge and expertise in all things fitness is only surpassed by her commitment to her students and their well being.

lived up to all the years of my boyhood. I often prayed my father would get weary of exercising that Board, but I must confess that my naughtiness wearied long before he did. Looking back, I am grateful. I will not go as far as to say that I am a good person, only that I am not a spoiled brat. I have learned through the years, thanks to the energy of my father, to extend courtesy to everybody around me and be respectful. Respecting other people is not something that comes naturally. Everybody needs to be taught that everybody deserves respect. Some people have earned more respect than others, I grant you. However, nobody deserves deliberate disrespect like those kids gave that bus lady. With all the studies are being done through our governmental grant programs, I wonder why nobody has ever, at least to my knowledge, done a study on the importance of discipline in the home. It is at this point I must agree most heartily with the scriptural injunction on this subject. Solomon, the wisest man in the world, had much to say about disciplining children. And if anybody should know about disciplining children, it was Solomon. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15 KJV). He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (Proverbs 13:24 KJV). Disciplining children to ensure they grow up to be proper adults demands a whole lot of energy especially from parents. Love sometimes carries a large stick.Rev. James L.

No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic. Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets just right for one bite are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead. Wrapped tightly and refrigerated for several hours, the flavors meld deliciously. Warm weather classic lemonade gets a ruby-red makeover. Simply add antioxidant rich beets to frozen lemonade concentrate, and Pink Lemonade is ready to enjoy. A Tex-Mex inspired picnic of Southwestern Marinated Chicken with Bean Salad is a meal all its own. The grilled chicken marinated in liquid from a can of southwestern bean salad pairs perfectly with the bean salad for a fast fiesta that can be served warm or chilled just add tortillas and perhaps a margarita.

lived up to all the years of my boyhood. I often prayed my father would get weary of exercising that Board, but I must confess that my naughtiness wearied long before he did. Looking back, I am grateful. I will not go as far as to say that I am a good person, only that I am not a spoiled brat. I have learned through the years, thanks to the energy of my father, to extend courtesy to everybody around me and be respectful. Respecting other people is not something that comes naturally. Everybody needs to be taught that everybody deserves respect. Some people have earned more respect than others, I grant you. However, nobody deserves deliberate disrespect like those kids gave that bus lady. With all the studies are being done through our governmental grant programs, I wonder why nobody has ever, at least to my knowledge, done a study on the importance of discipline in the home. It is at this point I must agree most heartily with the scriptural injunction on this subject. Solomon, the wisest man in the world, had much to say about disciplining children. And if anybody should know about disciplining children, it was Solomon. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15 KJV). He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (Proverbs 13:24 KJV). Disciplining children to ensure they grow up to be proper adults demands a whole lot of energy especially from parents. Love sometimes carries a large stick.Rev. James L.

No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic. Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets just right for one bite are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead. Wrapped tightly and refrigerated for several hours, the flavors meld deliciously. Warm weather classic lemonade gets a ruby-red makeover. Simply add antioxidant rich beets to frozen lemonade concentrate, and Pink Lemonade is ready to enjoy. A Tex-Mex inspired picnic of Southwestern Marinated Chicken with Bean Salad is a meal all its own. The grilled chicken marinated in liquid from a can of southwestern bean salad pairs perfectly with the bean salad for a fast fiesta that can be served warm or chilled just add tortillas and perhaps a margarita.

Sometimes watching the news on television gets rather disparaging. Now that we have 24/7 news, not only can we see the news any time we want to, but we can see it over and over and over again. It is particularly disheartening when there is a slow news day. I think all of us can remember O.J. Simpsons mad race down a Los Angeles highway. I can remember the good old days when Uncle Walter brought us up to speed on the days news inside of a 30-minute program. Oh, for those good old days. Never has an American generation been exposed to so much and knows so little for so short a time. This all came to me recently when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching the news after our evening repast. I think it was the 9,999 times this particular news story had been played. Of course, we do not watch television that often and so we may only have seen a very short portion. The short portion that we saw was just about enough and my wife said so. It was the news story, if you remember, of the bus lady who was bullied by children. I think those children, my wife said and then paused while she grit her teeth violently, need a good old-fashioned spanking. And with that, she crossed her arms and set her face in a defiant manner. Luckily, I was not one of those children or I would have received the intentions of her mind at that point. Her comment got me to thinking. There was a time, back in the day, when spankings were rather normal. Someone once said that if you saw a young boy on the street you should stop what youre doing and give him a good spanking because he was either coming from trouble or headed for trouble. Raising children then was a community affair. I am not sure that ever took place, but it does have an authentic ring to it. I semi-fondly remember when I was a youngster I had the heebie-jeebies whaled out of me by my father on a regular basis. And I can testify that I have not missed those heebiejeebies. My life is better for not having them. Watching the video about the kids bullying that bus lady, I could not help but think that they were a rather spoiled bunch of little brats. Pardon my French. I think I would have taken it one step further than my wife. Not only do those youngsters need a good old-fashioned spanking but I think their parents do as well. Kids today are only a mirror of what they see and hear at home. When I was young, the only spoiled brats around were the children of the rich folk. They could afford to be spoiled brats because their parents with their money bought their way into society. The only thing those kids ever earned was a bad reputation and distain from the rest of us. The rest of us, having gone through the spanking rituals, could not afford to be spoiled brats. Good parents made sure of that. I think of what my father use to say. Son, Im going to take this Board of Education and apply it to the seat of your learning. I can testify that he was very enthusiastic about his job. With all that education, I have had multiple degrees on my posterior. Even to this day, every time I sit down I am reminded of that education. This Board of Education that my father was superintendent of, always hung by the door. Being the religious person that my father was, he had printed on this Board of Education the phrase from a favorite hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour. It was a motto he BY BILL FORD On Nov. 13, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln began this famous Gettysburg address, at the Gettysburg Battlefield with these above words. If you were to continue with the first paragraph of this address, you would read that, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition, that all men are created equal. This is probably the most famous address in history. I would wonder today, if any of our school children or their teachers even know of this speech. When I was in school, we had to memorize it. I dont know who will remember that Lincoln was originally a Democrat but became a Republican as the republicans were against slavery and Stephen A. Douglas became a Democrat. Four score and seven years ago from now, another Republican led us into another war, a war for financial disaster, as we were on track to the great depression. That president for those who dont remember, was Herbert Hoover. We were met upon a great battlefield of that war as well, albeit a different type of war, a financially disastrous war. Then, along came President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to save us from that debacle. He created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and Work Progress Administration (WPA), work programs to save the country. Far more effective programs than any union movement. Today just one year shy of six score years from that time, we are seven years removed from President George W. Bush leading us into a severe recession, from which we have yet to recover. Now a Democrat is trying to save this union, and no president yet, has been able to accomplish this in three short years. Lincoln saved the Union but not the economy. Just ask the southern people about the northern carpetbaggers. It took President Roosevelt five years to save our economy and save the union even through a war until his untimely death. Are you following me here? Now again I say, were seven years from the Bush debacle, and the Republicans want us to return to the years of deceit, recession and a party that led us into the 10 years war by lies, that cost thousands of dead and wounded Americans. If the Republicans had their way, we would continue our warring ways beyond the timetable set by President Obama to get out of Afghanistan. If we were to study political parties since our founding, and I have, since I was a history minor in college, we first had the Federals, then the Tories, National Republicans, Whigs, Free Soil party. I dont believe anyone will remember, the Original Republican Party was against the United States Bank. In another act, the Whigs took over the National Republican Party in 1834. This information can be found in Jesse Macys book, Political Parties of the United States, 1846-1861. So you see, its not the party stupid, its about a man, a quality president who stands for the people, not themselves. During the Greek Civil War, from 1946-1949, Thucydides wrote, the opposition parties speak the same language, but had lost the ability to understand each other. That sounds like our congress today or maybe forever. Having worked for the 92nd Congress, and lobbied two legislatures, Im convinced the members of these suffering bodies have nothing in mind but their own well being and reelection. Remember John Boehner, when he became speaker of the House of Representatives, cried and said he had wanted that position all of his life. Im probably giving you too much information here, but history could stand to repeat itself and I cant find in any annals of history, where a Republican saved the economy of America. Presidents Reagan, and George H. W. Bush were fiscally irresponsible and consequently, President Clinton saved our economy, and left office with a $7 trillion dollar surplus. But the country was steeped into a $21 trillion debt within two years of George W. Bush, becoming president and leaving the Democrats and President Obama an almost insurmountable task to restore fiscal responsibility to the country. Ah, I remember it well. Now we are met upon another great battlefield of a war to preserve the union. President Obamas health program is a target, just as was Medicare back in the 1960s by the republicans. Theirs is a real effort to divert attention from the real serious issues of health care and jobs. Jobs are coming back, but our society being an impatient one, we want it all now, not with a sound infrastructure but one built on unstable sand. To this date I have not heard one definitive plan put forward by the Republicans, i.e., Mitt Romney as to how he will solve not one alluded to problem, but to any problem. Romney says he will correct Obamas mistakes and give our economy a boost which is just a boast. Ive always adhered to old saying, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Weve had two Bushes who were for the rich and oil. Do we want a multimilloionaire who couldnt run a state or a private business to try and manage our country? I think not! Remember, history tends to repeat itself, but we cant let that happen in these times.Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com GUEST COLUMN Four Score and Seven Years Ago Read the classifieds What about old-fashioned spankings? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE12 The Veterans Club out did itself on Saturday, July 7, with an evening of first class food; entertainment and a wide variety of door prizes. A record number of veterans; their spouses and guests showed up for this event and none of them left disappointed. Lees Chicken delivered a delicious dinner of chicken; mashed potatoes & gravy; green beans and biscuits. Eve Houghtaling directed the diners while Peggy Konar coordinated the servers and thanks to their leadership, over 120 guests were served by our volunteers in less than 30 minutes. That in itself has to be a new record. At 6 p.m., Veterans Club President Bill Mahar led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance and the playing of the military service songs medley. Next, the audience joined in for the singing of Proud to be an American and that brought down the house. Throughout the evening Bill and Eve gave away more than a dozen door prizes that had been donated along with the 50/50 drawings. Shortly after 6 p.m. Kenny Jackson began the entertainment with his country western music; bright wit and unique style. Interspersed with the tunes were Kennys comedy; some great Karaoke and a few tricks along the way to bring roars of laugher and rousing applause from the crowd. Dancing and singing the night away, everyone had a great time. Kennys reputation as a deejay is well known in Marion County and Cherrywood is looking forward to his return for the August Summer Fest celebration. Marion County Undersheriff Dan Kuhn and his wife Tasha stopped by to express their appreciation to the veterans for their service and sacrifice. Fred and Marion OHern rewarded Dan with a police helmet from the London England Constabulary. Dan was very grateful for the gift and the sentiment behind it. The Veterans Club sponsored this event free of charge to veterans and their significant others. This was our way as an organization to say Thank you to our many veterans. We invite all Cherrywood veterans to join and become an active part of this great organization that sponsors many varying veterans projects and provides much needed support to our service personnel. As a closing note, the Veterans Club wants everyone to know that none of the monies gained from the cruise raffle last May was used for this event. All of that money has been and will remain, earmarked for Veterans Charities. Newcomers coffee hourOn Saturday, July 14, there will be a special coffee hour for all of Cherrywoods new residents. Our Welcoming Committee will host this event to welcome the many new people who have become part of our community this year. If you have moved into Cherrywood in the past six months or less, you are warmly invited to attend this chance to meet some of your neighbors and to receive some helpful information concerning our community and Marion County. Im confident you will find it a fun and informative time so come on out for a cup of coffee and a donut or two on us.Summer Fest100 Days of Summer Fest is in full swing and continues on July 23 with another gala event. Dinner will be served from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. at which time Rich Becotte will crank up the music that we all love to hear and dance to. Admission is free to all our residents but you do need a ticket. Guests can get their passes and tickets from Geri in the office for $12 per person. Plan to come early to insure that you get a good place to sit. There will be no reserving of seats allowed. At 6 p.m., get ready to kick up your feet and dance to the music of Rich Becotte and his wide variety of tunes. Note: Geri is going to be on vacation from July 16 through the 20th so get your tickets right away. For those of you who like to procrastinate, a Social Committee volunteer will be in the clubhouse on Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon to supply tickets. Trivia Night is comingOn July 18 at 7 p.m., Trivia Night again comes to the clubhouse. After the near record turn out of last month, we are looking for some strong competition this month as Fred OHern and Rich Hurley try to stump the teams. Our emcees put questions up on the big screen and the participating teams try their best to fill in the answers on the answer sheets provided. If you dont have a team, (usually 3 or 4 people) come on out anyway and youll be assigned one. Grab your favorite beverage and snack and join in the fun as everyone vies for bragging rights and maybe even a cash prize. Its only a dollar to play with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Fund. You cant lose by coming out; you have fun; learn a few things; support a good cause and laugh with your neighbors and friends. After their total defeat last month, the Guppies team is coming out for revenge; or at least theyll try and do a little better. Come on out and give them some friendly and challenging competition. In August there wont be a Trivia Night as the emcees need a little break but theyll be back on the third Thursday of September. Dont miss this fun time. CERT Cherrywood Emergency Management Team will hold its meeting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday the 18th. This is going to be an open meeting for those who wish to learn more about emergency preparedness and safety. Everyone is welcome and those with special needs such as mobility problems; oxygen dependency; medications that require constant refrigeration and those with limited transportation are especially urged to attend. Forms will be available to let the CERT team know your needs and allow them to meet those needs in the event of an emergency. Forms are also available from Geri in the office. CERT stands ready to assist our community during times of natural disasters; storms or civil emergencies with dependable and professional personnel and equipment. Come out to the meeting to show your support for these people and to help insure your personal safety. Geri on VacationGeri will be enjoying her granddaughters visit from the 16th until the 20th of July. Tickets for Summer Fest will available from a Social Committee volunteer in the clubhouse from 10 a.m. until noon on Monday and Tuesday only that week.Co-Ed Tai Chi/ Water Aerobics There is a slight schedule adjustment for all of our Co-Ed Tai Chi; Stretch/Yoga; and Water Aerobics students this month. On Monday, July 23, there will be no Water Aerobics at 11:30 a.m. or Tai Chi at 6:30 p.m. There will be a Stretch/Yoga class that day at 10:15 a.m. Make up date for the Water Aerobics will be Tuesday, July 24th at 11:30 a.m. The Co-Ed Tai Chi is cancelled that night because of Summer Fest. Please mark your calendars to reflect this slight schedule change. Our instructor, Dr. Deb Rivera is hoping that all of her students will be able to attend the make up session for Water Aerobics class. We are fortunate here at Cherrywood to have such a professional and dedicated fitness instructor as Deb. Her knowledge and expertise in all things fitness is only surpassed by her commitment to her students and their well being.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident of Cherrywood that has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we feature Pia Dean. Pia was born in Ferrara, Italy, in the region of Emilia, the third of four girls in her family. Her sisters were two years in age apart. Maria was the oldest, and then came Agnese; Pia and the baby of the family, Elena. When she was 4 years old, Pias father was assigned to Tripoli, Libya, by the Italian government. In 1937, Italy was under the control of Mussolini with Libya as one of its territories. Her father had a job in the archives department of the diplomatic corps and so he packed up his wife and children and sailed for North Africa. Pia describes how seasick she was and how she still hesitates to get on a boat. In 1940, the war was closing in on the entire world in general and North Africa in particular. Mussolini ordered all the children of government employees out of Tripoli and back to Italy. Pia and her sisters were among those children who had to leave their parents and travel unescorted across the Mediterranean. At this time, the Mediterranean Sea was filled with submarines and mines to say nothing of hostile aircraft and surface vessels. The dangers were many and the comforts few on the overloaded ship. Pia was not only seasick; she was heartsick. For the next several years, the sisters suffered the hardships of war. Pia was sent to one school along with her baby sister Elena in Cattolica, Italy, while her older sisters were separated from them and put into another so called school. At age 11, Pias sister Maria passed away from illness while at the facility. These institutions were like military schools only much stricter. Pias eyes tear up as she thinks about the misery and hardships of those years. Hunger was an ever present companion and the punishments suffered at the hands of her overseers too harsh for her to describe. An example of the cruelties she suffered came one night in particular. After the Germans took over Italy, a group of Nazis came into her dormitory room. Within minutes, all of the girls had packed their two uniforms; a blanket and pillow and were marched outside. On the roof of the institution was a large Red Cross to alert bombers that this was a non-military target. The children were marched off to the town of Finalpia to be housed for a time in a horse barn while the Nazis set up their headquarters in the old school. At wars end, Pias family was reunited. Her father found work doing the same job he had been doing before only now he was working for the British and Americans in Tripoli. Life began to improve for the family as the years went on. Pia, now 16 and fluent in reading English, took a job as a seamstress and also went to school at night to learn how to speak English. By the age of 18 she was a translator working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She half joked about the colonel she worked for commenting that he was, quite fresh. Soon she was working on a new Air Force Base in Libya called Wheelus field. It is there that she met her future husband, Alphonso. Al, as he was called, worked in communications and spoke often with Pia over the phone but had never met her. One day, Pia asked him to go out for the evening on a date. At the time he didnt know that she was just trying to make another man jealous. Pia took Al to a club where the man, Victorio, was hanging out. Victorio hated GIs and soon a fight erupted between the two men. Al won. Not only did he win the fight, he alsoFriday, July 13, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 13, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice...

She led the fight to have our students stand for our Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem and showing respect for our American flag. She will take a strong stand to defend the values she holds dear, never backing down to organizations like the ACLU, who have goals other than having excellent schools. She will encourage more parents to be involved in their childrens education as well as others in our communities. This is not intended to discredit other candidates, it is solely intended to have everyone look at them in a way that considers all of the above. Isnt this the way we should view all candidates for any elected position? Wayne Rackley OcalaLuster keeps dimmingOur beloved America is not the shining gem and envy of the world she once was ... and her luster keeps dimming. Americans cant find jobs; many are experiencing financial loss; our economy is in shambles; religion is being cast aside; family-values are disintegrating. Yet this administration seems not to care; it makes little effort to correct these problems; it doesnt even suggest realistic ways to fix them: This administration has mostly ignored the wishes of the American people. Now, the courts are doing the same: many of their rulings are based more on political-ideology than reality. America is becoming an entitlement-society: give free stuff to the people ... even those who dont need it. Unless tax reform a national sales tax is implemented, the middle class LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 will help fund the new society many of the wealthy will simply find another tax-loophole to ensure their contribution is minimal; the government will borrow even more money to help pay for the it. Spend, tax, borrow! Spend, tax, borrow ... until America eventually defaults. Is that really what we want for our beloved America? If we dont make a real change on Nov. 6, that will surely be our future. Joe OHara Ocala Experience mattersAnd, when electing the next Sheriff of Marion County, true cop experience should weigh in heavy. Chris Blair is a man who had his boots on the ground as a deputy, who climbed the ranks of the department and concluded his prestigious 35-year career at the MCSO as a Major/Bureau Chief with 23 years of managerial and executive experience. His opponent, Dan Kuhn, is a lawyer who has served at the MCSO for only six years. He entered the department as an attorney, and was appointed to Chief of Staff. Just prior to the announcement of his candidacy for Sheriff, he was appointed to the position of Undersheriff. Yes, Dan completed the academy and can shoot a gun, but the ability to shoot a gun doesnt make you uniquely qualified to lead our Sheriffs Office. He has not spent even one day on the streets of Marion County protecting and serving. Chris Blair has earned the endorsements of the Ocala Fraternal Order of Police, the Marion County Fraternal Order of Police, the Police Benevolent Association, the Florida Professional Firefighters as well as the esteemed, former Marion County Sheriff, Don Moreland. As a citizen of Marion County and resident of the 200 corridor, I want to know that we have plenty of men and women on the street who are serving and protecting, and I feel better knowing that the man at the top has served in that capacity as well.

Friday, July 13, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Everyone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting reelected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlewww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 13, 2012 Triskaidekaphobia. Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of todays date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (A-rod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-854-3986.

So for a few weeks, the many Social Security recipients in the area will have to do without a local office. It seems that Tropical Storm Debby flooded out the building just south of the Square in Ocala and it had to be shut down. But thats not the issue. The question is why Social Security didnt have a Plan B in operation to keep local services, pardon the pun, flowing. The Social Security office is moving into a new building on East Silver Springs Boulevard at about the 1000 block. Construction has been under way for several months, and officials said the building should be ready next month. You can see the progress in an accompanying photo. But what if a new building wasnt already under construction? What would the folks at Social Security have done? Continue sending people to Gainesville and Leesburg? Government people say that most Social Security services can be done online, that there is no need for many people to go to the office. But just go into the office on any weekday and youll find a full waiting room of people, many of them elderly or disabled, waiting to talk to a representative. Arent Social Security officials aware that many people who receive their services dont have access to a computer, or have only limited knowledge of the operation of the Internet? While the government was a little unlucky with the timing of the shutdown, just a couple of months before the new building was ready, it was indeed fortunate that the new building is almost ready. This time, people should be told what will happen if an emergency strikes. The thousands of recipients in the Ocala area deserve to know that officials care enough to keep the services coming. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Social Security: No plan B? Triskaidekaphobia, Parskevidekatriaphobia Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Supreme Court has spoken! Whats next? Who is Jackie Porter?It seems a day cant go by without someone condemning her for being a candidate for Marion County superintendent of schools. Many have the opinion that no one could possibly handle the responsibilities of that job without having a college degree or better. While I have the utmost respect for anyone who holds such degrees, they dont mean the person is qualified for any particular position, especially one of leadership/management. On the flip side, not having one doesnt mean the person isnt qualified. I prefer to look at qualifications based on a broad range of abilities and experience along with a very close look at who they are as individuals. This means what they stand for, what guides their decisions and what visions they have for our future. In other words, just who they really are. Her stated number one goal is to improve our dismal record of being in 44th place of the 67 counties. She sees us in the top 20! This low rating causes me to think that what we have been doing in our schools is not working out very well. With this in mind, maybe its time to have someone making important decisions that has the ability to think outside the box Some minimize her business experience in managing a successful business for some 20 years. This in itself is an amazing accomplishment! Anyone who has ever served in a management position knows excellent leadership and fiscal skills are necessary to accomplish this feat. Small business owners have always been the strength of our economy, providing the majority of jobs in our private sector. To be successful they must have business and people skills. I have the privilege of knowing Jackie personally and have always been impressed with her and her value system. Her virtues are many: honesty, love of God, loyalty, dedication to excellence, high character, self discipline, and love of our country. She desires to have discipline in Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN, PAGE21 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThe new Social Security office being built on East Silver Springs Boulevard.

When he was discharged, Al and Pia moved to Maryland, where Al was from originally. He took a position with Western Union in their aerospace communications division and Pia found work with the Bank of America. After their retirement, Pia and Al moved to Cape Coral, Florida, where Pia took work with Bank of America again. For economic reasons, they decided to move and found out about Cherrywood from friends. That was in 2001 and they loved this community then and Pia still loves it now. A couple of years ago, after 53 years of marriage, Al passed away. It was at that time that Pia realized how close a community could be. Her eyes tear up when she speaks of the kindness of friends and neighbors during that horrible time. Whether its riding her bike; playing bocce ball; going to Trivia or attending the many other functions here at Cherrywood, Pia is active and enjoys the abiding love and respect of her friends and neighbors. A ready smile and quick wit are hallmarks of her personality. She has endured the tragedies of her youth; the hardships of an uncertain world and survived with a stellar personality. Two daughters, Linda and Pam, and four grandchildren fill Pia with pride as she speaks of them. Linda lives in Myrtle Beach and Pam lives in Richmond, Virginia. They keep in close touch and see each other as often as possible. If you dont know Pia, youre missing a great treat. Introduce yourself to her and experience the joy that comes from knowing this special lady.

When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs.

Storms, shipwrecks, sorcery, and Shakespeare abound this summer as Ocala Civic Theatre presents a youth production of The Tempest on Aug. 3 and 4. The production will be directed by classically trained New York director and drama teacher Jordan Jones. Jones, who has a BFA in theatre from the University of Connecticut, also studied in London and trained at Shakespeares Globe Theater. This will not be the youth version of The Tempest, but instead will be the original Shakespeare (though abridged), with a running time of about 90 minutes. The cast of 20 will consist of students age 10 and older. Jackie Osterman, director of education, chose to incorporate Shakespeare into the youth curriculum because she wanted to teach students the importance of the classics and their relevance to modern life. I think every theatre student needs to be exposed to everything from classical to contemporary theatre, Osterman said. I heard kids saying, We cant do Shakespeare or Its boring. Shakespeare is exciting and interesting. The stories are fantastic. There isnt a sitcom today that doesnt owe a plot element to Shakespeare. Jones, having seen the youth production of Robin Hood this spring, felt that The Tempest would be a good match for Ocala Civic Theatre students. His hunch seems to be correct so far; class enrollment is already full. Set on a mythical island, The Tempests cast of characters includes Prospero the magician, his daughter Miranda, the mischievous spirit Ariel, and the villainous Caliban. It is an epic tale of adventure, full of witches, monsters, kings, goddesses, jesters, jealous brothers, romance, treachery, royal weddings, sea nymphs, enchanted trees, and magic spells. If Harry Potter and Shakespeare met, this is what you would have, said Osterman. Like the Harry Potter books, The Tempest has a darker side. This is a play about love, bitterness, regret, and time lost, Jones said. Prospero has shielded his daughter Miranda from the outside world her entire life because he knows that all the magic in the world cant protect his daughter from the cruelty of humanity. Jones envisions a sixteenth-century Caribbean or New World/Spanish colonial look for the minimalist set, which will rely heavily on lighting and sound effects to create the plays magical atmosphere. Costumes will be a mix of traditional and contemporary, and the set will be a non-literal interpretation of the iconic storm and shipwreck which brings several characters to the island. The otherworldly mood will be evoked by thunder and colorful lights, in rich hues of blue, green, gold, red, and orange. Performances of The Tempest will be Friday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are $10 for adults, $6 for students, and $5 for Marion Players. For more information, call the box office at 352-236-2274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com. Ocala Civic Theatre is at 4337 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (East State Road 40) in the Appleton Cultural Center. The theatre produces more than 12 fully staged, professional-quality live performances each season and also hosts touring companies. The Ocala Civic Theatre is volunteer-based and is one of the largest community theatres in the state, serving more than 70,000 Marion, Citrus and Lake County residents each season. Civic Theatre to present youth production of The Tempest A FTER W ARDS B y R osamund L upton In Afterwards British author Lupton transports readers to another world thats part real and part supernatural. Grace, the comatose narrator, tells the story of a catastrophic fire at her 8-year-old son Adams school. It is sports day and everyone is thought to be outside. However, thats not the case because Graces 17-year-old daughter Jenny is inside acting as school nurse for the day. Without thinking Grace rushes to her aid. The first few chapters are confusing until we realize the conversation she seems to be having with her husband is unheard by him. Grace can only communicate with her daughter who is also in a coma. But thats not for trying. She screams at doctors and her sister-in-law Sarah, a police officer, whos trying to piece together the puzzle of how the fire started. As Grace watches, police take one wrong turn after another. Shes desperate to tell them what she knows that the fire was no accident and that the target was Jenny. Then the worst news of all reaches her. Her daughters heart is failing. Unless she receives a transplant she has only weeks to live. After years of marriage Grace can easily read her husbands face: As soon as I see your face, I know that no heart has been found for her. I go close to you and you tell me that theres time. Its still going to be all right. Not to be defeatist! She will get better. So in this novel thriller meets family drama. There are plenty of red herrings to keep you engaged trying to figure out who among a bevy of characters is the sinister arsonist. And the message seems clear. People and situations are not always the way they appear. The ending is meant to be a surprise but is actually fairly predictable. For many this book will fall outside their comfort reading zone. But if youre looking for an entirely different reading experience, this might be your cup of tea.

One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. Thats why the FWC created its SpecialOpportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the states best public dove fields. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds each. There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields (Caravelle Ranch has six), and all hunts are from noon until sunset and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 6 and ending Jan. 5. Last year, 1,421 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants last year took an average of nearly six birds per hunter, per day, harvesting 601 birds! North Newberry PSGHA, in Alachua County, has 15 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field produced 135 doves for nearly a two-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Another field, Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County, has a 200-acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 73 doves were harvested there. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58 acres. Hunters there last season took 107 doves. Frog Pond North PSGHA in MiamiDade County has been a top producer in past years, and 201 birds were taken there last season, for nearly a two-birds-perhunter, per-day average. Fifteen Dove Club permits are available to hunt its 50 acres. The remaining special-opportunity dove field is Koon Farm in Lafayette County. There will be 13 Dove Club permits available to hunt on its 40 acres. Hunters took 304 birds there last season for nearly a five-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/License and clicking on Limited Entry/Quota Hunts, you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet (with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in at any county tax collectors office, license agent or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field. If you are successful in getting drawn, you must pick up and pay for your Dove Club permit at any of the same places mentioned above by July 31. Check for drawing results in mid-July at MyFWC.com/License, again by clicking Limited Entry/Quota Hunts. Any applicant who provides an email address will be notified by the FWC by email if drawn. Brochures on each of these areas are available online at MyFWC.com/Dove. Also at that Web address, beginning in late September, hunters will be able to find the most up-to-date information on these six special-opportunity dove fields, as well as Floridas other public dove fields. The website is updated every Thursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and field conditions. So if youd like to join the FWCs Dove Club, you need to try to do so in July. Remember to introduce someone new to hunting when you can. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and well see you in the woods!"Outta' the Woods" is a column highlighting the latest hunting opportunities in Florida.

In June credit ratings of 15 of the worlds largest banks were lowered because their future profitability and growth are questionable. Here at Pun Alley we hope you have some interest in the humor and its not questionable.Ah so!The credit ratings reduction has really hit Japan. Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.Perfect balanceAfter the tightrope walker completed his hazardous walk a fan asked him, I want to be a tightrope walker. What equipment do I need? The tightrope walker replied, Very flexible shoes, two towers, a wire, a pole and a bank book. I understand the shoes, towers, wire and pole, but whats the bank book for? inquired the man. To check your balance, of course. SafetyAn out-of-work man decided to rob a bank. Borrowing a friends van he drove to a small county bank late one dark moonless night and picked the lock on the rear door of the bank without difficulty, but the alarm sounded. He quickly loaded the banks small safe onto a furniture dolly he had brought along and loaded it into the van. He drove to his friends house and explained his problem. He asked if, in exchange for some of the loot, he might store the safe in the garage for a few days. The friend assured him: You can rest assured, your safe is secret with me.Two bitsA record number of bank failures have left America with a nationwide shortage of flimsy toaster ovens, cheap pocket calculators, and ugly dinnerware. Old bankers never die; they just lose interest. Some banks charge incredibly high interest rates. You can tell those because the TV camera that takes pictures of robbers is aimed at the loan officer. One dumb guy thinks a pole vault is a bank safe in Warsaw. Banking is just like our government a system of checks and balances. If you want to cash a check, you have to have a balance. A musician robbed the bank and made off with the lute. I went to the bank the other day. I asked the banker to check my balance, so he pushed me. I hear youre really going after the guy who robbed the bank yesterday. You bet. If he wanted to steal, why didnt he work his way up in the bank like I did. Float a loanJohn went to his bank to refinance a loan on his yacht. Making small talk with the loan officer, he told her that she was the main reason he came to that branch. Not even looking up from her paperwork, the loan officer responded, You dont fool me, sailor. Ill bet you have a woman in every bank.MissingA woman went into the small bank and noticed there was a new face behind the window. Has the teller gone away to take a rest? she inquired. No, replied the new man, hes gone away to avoid it. No competitionNot having a job, Don bought a hotdog cart and set it up in a prime spot on a busy downtown corner, right near a large bank. One day his friend Jim approached and asked if he would lend him some money. Don refused. But why? asked Jim. Everyone knows youre doing well and Im not asking for much. Well, Jim, in order to get this spot, I had to sign a non-competition agreement with that bank over there. According to the terms of the agreement, they dont sell hot dogs and I dont lend money.Silver?A woman went to the bank to arrange for a loan. Im sorry, maam, the teller told her, but the loan arranger is out to lunch. Thats OK, said the woman. Can I speak to Tonto then?

A recent wave of missing seniors has families across the nation on alert for elderly loved ones who are more mobile and active in warm weather and get separated, disoriented or in the worst case, lost and cant find their way home. This is especially worrisome in the summer heat when seniors can become quickly dehydrated. The warm and bright summer days can be alluring and dangerous for the elderly and thats why Senior Helpers, one of our nations largest in-home care companies for seniors, with caregivers in our area, has launched the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan. Its a powerful checklist for families to follow if their elderly loved one gets separated or lost. Every day we care for thousands of elderly people and as the weather heats up we see a huge rise in the number of seniors getting separated, disoriented or even downright lost, says Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers, an in-home senior care company with highly trained caregivers specializing in dementia and Alzheimers care. Thats why we started the Senior Lost and Found Action Plan to make sure seniors have a way to get out of a jam and to give families piece of mind. If families dont live nearby, we suggest they hire a caregiver to implement this action plan to help watch over their elderly loved one.How Seniors Get LostDriving and forgetting directions or they cant find their destination. They make it to their destination but then cant find their car in the parking lot. Plan to meet at a familiar place and then cant find it. Go with family members and friends to a place and then get separated and/or lost. Wander or drive away from home and get completely lost this is especially a problem with the elderly with dementia and/or Alzheimers. Of the 5 million people who suffer from Alzheimers, 60 percent of them will wander and become lost at some point during the disease. And sadly, of those who are lost for more than 72 hours, 80 percent never make it home. Senior Lost and Found Action PlanGive your senior a Smart phone and create an If Im Lost folder on the home screen in the folder, include the seniors family and caregiver numbers, 911, a cab company phone number, and the seniors home address. Install a GPS tracking system on the seniors cell phone make sure they have one for their car and they know how to use it. Make a plastic laminate card with all pertinent information place this in your seniors wallet and attach it to their car visor. Have your senior wear an ID bracelet they come in very fashionable designs.For Seniors With Dementia and AlzheimersConsider disguising the doors in your home painting or hanging posters on the inside of doors to disguise them as bookshelves or other furniture can often deter a senior from attempting to walk out. Install door chimes on all entry doors this alerts those at home whenever a door is opened. This comes in handy especially in a two level home. Security systems also offer this type of alarm. Alert your local authorities of the RISK of wandering many local police stations maintain an Alzheimers and dementia patient registry. Caregivers provide personal information that would be critical in a search and rescue effort, such as name, height, weight, etc Caregivers should keep a list of previous homes, occupations this is helpful if authorities need to search for a senior. Elderly with Alzheimers tend to recall former homes, occupations and other milestones as though they are present day. Some seniors with dementia are wandering in attempt to return to their roots. Utilize personal tracking devices consider buying GPS devices that seniors can wear around their ankles, wrists or even in their shoes. Committeeman who earlier hosted a fundraiser for Frank Bruno, are among those attending the national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, the first week in September. Bruce Seaman of Awake Marion and Nancy Noonan of Marions United for Public Education implored everyone not to ignore the Aug. 14 primary because the two initiatives concerning the school system need our support in order to give our teachers and our students the resources they need. Herman H. Brown, vice chairman of the newly resurrected Oak Run Democratic Club, announced that the group will meet at the Orchid Club at 7 p.m. July 19, and Sally said that tickets for the annual dinner at the Hilton Sept. 9 are now available.

She has two daughters who graduated from the Marion County School System, one is a nurse and the other a dentist. She pledges to bring professionalism back to the School Board meetings. In the County Commission races, incumbent Mike Amsden and challenger Jeff Gold spoke. Amsden told the audience that he has spent 3 years listening to you, serving you. He also spoke of the need to work together, noting that it takes three votes to pass anything. If you dont have two more votes, you cant accomplish anything. Gold, who has worked with both the Sheriffs Office and the Fire Department, said, Im doing this to try to help the community. He said he understands the working of the budget, and there are going to have to be intelligent cuts. Incumbent Stan McClain faces a challenge in the primary from David Moore, but Moore did not attend the meeting. McClain told the crowd that it was a real honor to serve all of you. He says he tries to make sure the county is fiscally responsible. Further, he says that some decisions do not sit well with some folks, but theyre good for the taxpayers. He pointed to the energy savings and to the long-term solution for solid waste that has been accomplished. All candidates, in response to a question, said they were in favor of the prayer continuing before the meetings. Amsden said he was willing to fight for it, but not with the taxpayers money. Its up to the churches, the sleeping giants. Theyll have our backs. The residency issue, which was raised several weeks ago, came up as Gabriel spoke. She said she would move from her current Preserve home, which is not in District 5 because of new maps, possibly to the On Top of the World, which is in that district. We will not leave the 200 Corridor, she said emphatically, saying she has been there for 16 years. She also spoke of her work as a volunteer with the emergency medical task force and parks and fire advisory boards. I want to keep working for the citizens of Marion County. We need balance on the County Commission. She added about the financial situation, Were going to have to be very streamlined.

How to protect wandering seniors Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Florida KidCare is enrolling families every day and United Way of Marion County has joined a statewide effort to help more uninsured children receive health care at a price their families can afford through Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctors visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. Were in contact with these families regularly and it makes sense to use these opportunities to share information about Florida KidCare and encourage families to complete the application for this quality healthcare program. Since it began in 1998, Florida KidCare has offered working families access to high-quality doctors and preventative care for their children at an affordable cost. Florida KidCare currently serves nearly 1.4 million children. For more information call Chris Cotter at 352-732-9696. United Way urges families with uninsured children to apply for Florida KidCare benefits Marion County is definitely on the map when it comes to ways to engage our youngest citizens.

BY MELINDA MYERS Dont let summer stressors ruin your landscapes good looks. Instead give your plants natural defenses a boost and keep both vegetable gardens producing and flowers blooming. Busy summer schedules can lead to plant neglect and less-than-picture-perfect gardens. When you team this with summer heat and drought that can lead to wilting, brown leaves, and poor growth, and add insects and diseases that can further weaken and damage plants, gardens can really suffer. An exciting new organic tool for gardeners is now available to help. Plant strengtheners, like JAZ sprays, help boost plants natural defenses so they are better able to deal with environmental stress, neglect, as well as insects and disease attacks. Scientists found that when plants experienced stress from drought, temperature extremes, insects or diseases they produced certain molecules that activated their natural defenses. They isolated these molecules, applied them to other plants, and found that the treated plants were better able to tolerate stress. Plant strengtheners contain such molecules that increase natural defenses in plants. One such family of molecules is the jasmonates, originally identified in the jasmine plant, that increases hundreds of natural defense molecules in treated plants. Some of the natural defenses make the plants more resistant to pathogens and others help reduce damage from drought, heat and salt. While proper care can help increase a plants natural defenses, plant strengtheners give them an extra boost to help plants thrive even during periods of environmental stress. These organic products act like vitamins or immunizations, helping plants deal with extreme and often unpredictable weather, pest, and disease challenges. You can even keep healthy plants performing their best by proactively using a plant strengthener. By doing so, youll boost a plants immune system before environmental stresses hit and ultimately help it thrive as it faces serious challenges throughout the remainder of the season. Its a great way to protect plants before they become threatened. Make sure to give your plants proper care throughout their lifetime. Water thoroughly and as needed. Then mulch the soil surrounding your plants with shredded leaves, evergreen needles, or other organic materials. These conserve moisture, keep roots cool and moist, suppress weeds, and improve the soil as they break down. And, if your plants experience the same problems each year, it is time to make a change. Move stressed plants to more suitable growing conditions. Match the plant to the light, soil, and moisture it prefers. Replace diseased plants with resistant varieties and provide proper care. By taking these steps and investing a bit of time and energy youll be sure to create a beautiful, healthy and productive landscape.Nationally known gardening expert, TV/radio host, author & columnist Melinda Myers has more than 30 years of horticulture experience and has written over 20 gardening books, including Cant Miss Small Space Gardening.

Parents and caregivers will want to check out the Headquarters-Ocala Public Library Preschool Club to enjoy early learning activities specially designed for the 3-5 year old starting at 2 p.m. Activities include art projects, puzzles, games, construction and even a dramatic play that can all be replicated by families at home. Then drop by the newly renovated Tot Spot for babies and toddlers. Its all happening at your public library. The Born Learning Trail promotes fun and gamesimportant components of early childhood learning, said Julie Shealy, volunteer chair of United Ways Womens Leadership Council. With United Ways focus around education, it was a wonderful opportunity for our womens initiative to get behind the importance of early childhood development. We know that what happens in a childs early years mattersfor success in life and school readiness. We want families to use everyday outingsincluding trips to the Born Learning Trail to support that learning. Parents and caregivers interested in learning more from Born Learning materials or who seek information and resources about early learning are encouraged to visit www.bornlearning.org.

BRIEFS The Skills Gap Forums postponed last month due to threat of a tropical storm will now take place July 16. Workforce Connection and its economic development and education partners are holding the forums to identify the difference between the critical skills needed on the job and those possessed by applicants.

Skills Gap Forum postponed by Debby set for next week At an open house on July 2, Reginald E. Landers, Jr., chairman of the Democratic Party of Marion County, welcomed a steady stream of visitors to the partys new headquarters at 601 S.W. First Ave. The stand-alone brick building is almost directly across the street from Ocalas main post office about five blocks southwest of the Ocala Town Square. The donkey kicking up its heels on the wonderful sign outside designed by our talented and tireless events coordinator Sally Smith shows how fired up and ready to go we are as we work to keep President Obama in the White House and secure the election as well of our excellent area candidates, Landers said at a meeting of the Democratic Executive Committee following the open house at which he also saluted the outstanding contributions of Joyce Blake, John Hickey, John Moxley and Gary Smith in making the move a reality. Candidates present included Frank Bruno, who is running for Florida State Senate, Judge Cochran, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections, and Woody Clymer, non-partisan candidate for school board. Keith Ferguson, field director of the Obama for America campaign, and Benjamin Cuebas, head of the Young Democrats, delighted the audience with their enthusiasm but no one made a more fervent call to action than Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committeewoman and leader of Marion Countys Democratic Coordinated Campaign. Joyce repeatedly exhorted attendees to call her directly at 690-1746 in order to volunteer for voter registration and precinct and vote building training.

BY JIM CLARK EditorA planned debate among County Commission District 5 candidates fizzled Monday when two of the four candidates did not attend and a third had to leave early at the monthly State Road 200 Coalition meeting. Pat Gabriel, who is president of the Coalition, was the only District 5 candidate to speak at the event. Francine Johannesen, candidate, was there for the beginning of the meeting, but had to leave because of another commitment. Earl Arnett and Butch Verrando, other District 5 hopefuls, did not attend. One candidate who had gotten into the political arena late and had not taken part earlier this summer was Bobby Dobkowski, who is running for School Board District 2. Known also as Bobby Dee because of a talk radio show he conducted, he told the group that he was active in Queen of Peace Church and was committed to the 200 area. I dont think the school system is good enough for the students in Marion County, he told the group. He said the administration is top heavy, and pushed for what he called common sense discipline. He faced questioning because he homeschools his children, but again cited the fact that he doesnt think the school system as currently operating is good enough. He noted that if he is elected to the School Board, he will be the only member with school-age children. Dobkowskis opponent, Carol Ely, spoke to the Coalition earlier this summer, but was unopposed at the time. She cites her 35 years as an educator, including 13 years as a teacher, five years as a curriculum coordinator, five years as an assistant principal and 14 years as a principal. Her time in administration was at Emerald Shores, Belleview and Shady Hill elementary Candidates pay visit to Coalition PLEASESEECOALITION, PAGE3 000BUW E 1918 SW 17th St. AutoMaxOcala.com (see sales person for details) Pictures for illustation purposes only.
