OF NOTE United Way seeking reading volunteersUnited Way of Marion County is looking to recruit 100 volunteers to be placed in local elementary schools this fall and be paired up with one child to work on literacy skills. The volunteer commitment consists of one hour, once a week for 25 weeks. Training and materials will be provided. This volunteer recruitment effort is in response to a grant that United Way of Marion County received from Carol and Barney Barnett. The grant is focused on engaging, training, and deploying volunteer reading pals in 10 Florida regions to increase the number of students who are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. Working with local school districts, United Ways Womens Leadership Councils, Early Learning Coalitions, Childrens Services Councils and others, this initiative will focus on engaging students from pre-kindergarten to third grade. Local United Ways are tasked with partnering with their local school system, using a common state-wide pre and post assessment, tracking volunteer hours and providing books for children to take home. Implementation of the program is left to the discretion of each community. When schools improve, communities improve and sometimes kids just need someone who believes in them, Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County said. Volunteer training will be offered Thursday, Aug. 2 from 9-11 a.m. at the Marion County Public Library Headquarters located at 2720 E. Silver Springs Blvd, Ocala. Volunteers will be placed when school begins in the fall. Please contact the United Way by calling Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696 ext. 212 or jhathaway@uwmc.org.

Charles Bruce Decker, Jr., 53, of Citra, was southbound on 200 in front of Canopy Oak Plaza. As he approached the entrance about halfway between that Publix shopping center and the Winn Dixie, a Hyundai Azera driven by Kathleen A. Bauer, 90, reportedly turned in front of him and he collided with the right front of the car. Decker, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the Harley Ultra Classic he was driving, struck the windshield of the car and landed in the road. State Road 200 southbound was closed for approximately an hour after the 9:07 a.m. accident. BY JIM CLARK EditorTwo young men were arrested after an attempted robbery at a Corridor Internet caf on Friday the 13th was foiled by a patron who shot at the two suspects. According to reports from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Davis G. Dawkins, 19, of 19556 S.W. 36th St. in Dunnellon, and Duwayne B. Henderson, 19, of 1318 S.W. 33rd St., Ocala, allegedly entered the Palms Internet Caf, 8484 S.W. State Road 200. One carried a baseball bat and struck a computer, while the other brandished a weapon and threatened customers. One of the customers, identified as Samuel Williams, pulled out a gun which he was reportedly legally carrying and shot at the two men, chasing them out the door, then locking the door behind them. Blood was found at the scene indicating that at least one of them had been struck by a bullet. Later the Sheriffs Office received information that two men were being taken from the Marion Oaks area to Shands Hospital with gunshot injuries. A detective interviewed them, and Dawkins said he had been confronted by two subjects at Scott Carrigan Field and forced to assist in the robbery. He also said he had previously worked for the Internet caf. The report states the same information during the arrest of Henderson, who allegedly was the robber with the weapon. Both men were arrested and eventually booked into the Marion County Jail. Dawkins bonded out on $11,000 bond, while Henderson was released on $31,000 bond.

Rare visit Residents of Stone Creek are part of Chamber-sponsored Cuba trip BY PATRICIA GIZZI Special to the CitizenMany of us have enjoyed the beauty and beaches of the Caribbean Islands. Recently, three Stone Creek residents visited a Caribbean Island that not many have the opportunity to visit the island of Cuba. The Ocala Chamber of Commerce sponsored a nine day People to People tour to the island of Cuba. Residents Rita Levy, Diane Callahan and I made the trip to Cuba along with other Ocala residents. The 45-minute flight from Miami on a chartered airline arrived safely and early enough to enjoy an entire day in Havana. The People to People tours were set up by President Obama and approximately 110,000 people have taken advantage of seeing the island. The tours are set by the state and the tour guides are state employees. We spent the first three days in Havana in a former Hilton Hotel. It was considered a four-star hotel by Cuban standards but here in the U.S. it would have been a twostar hotel. There was no air conditioning in the hallways or elevators. The rooms were clean and spacious but air conditioning was a problem, and many had to change their rooms because of air conditioning or shower problems. Since sewers in Cuba are old, toilet paper cannot be flushed down PLEASESEECUBA PAGE25 Vets honoredAt a quarterly ceremony at Veterans Park on July 14, the names of veterans who died during the previous three months were announced.

MUSELLA The Big Sun Chorus of Ocala is taking advantage of the lazy days of summer to gear up for another season of harmony. The Chorus as well as our quartets are practicing new music for the new year. The Big Sun Chorus has been directed quite effectively over the past year by John Shaerer. John took over as an interim director until we were able to get a new and permanent director. Thank you John for doing such a great job. Our chorus is proud to welcome Ron Hesketh as our Music Director. He and his lovely wife Joyce, are a welcome asset to our Chorus. He has been a member of the Barber Shop Society since 1991 and elicits leadership quality as well as enthusiasm and plans to prepare the chorus to enter competition next year. On a sad note, a good friend and barbershopper, Jim Francis passed away in June after a short illness. Members of the Big Sun Chorus were able to say goodbye and were honored to sing at his funeral. With all the hats that Jim wore, he was a vital part of the chorus and a great bass in the Good Vibrations quartet. Now he joins the vast number of deceased members Barbershoppers remember Jim Francis HARMONY CORNER in that Very Large Quartet in heaven. We will miss him.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, July 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the toilet. It is deposited in a waste basket next to the toilet. This was a new task we had to learn. Paper is at a premium in Cuba and most restaurants had cloth napkins, but one we visited had paper and when we asked for more paper napkins, the waiter came out with one napkin on a plate. Of course, we need more as the meal we were eating was messy. Cuba is a country of great beauty and the worst poverty that I have seen but then I have traveled to only a few third world countries. Despite the poverty, the people seemed happy. The children were clean and playing. We saw children playing baseball with very worn gloves, sticks for bats and large pits for balls. One of the passengers had brought baseballs and when he distributed them to the children, their faces show the greatest joy. If you love old cars, then Cuba is the place to see them. Either the U.S. made cars better 50 years ago or Cuba has the best mechanics. These cars are still running. Cuban cars have different colored license plates to show what type of car cab, rental, state, embassy. Many of the Cuban residents live in what were beautifully built buildings with great columns and great architecture. However, they are crumbling as there is no money for repairs. We visited Cienfuegos, which is called, Cubas Pearl of the South. It is a beautiful city that is restored. It had many wonderful shops and a great theatre and it is located near the water. Here we were treated to a concert by young musicians. Their teacher is Russian and the first violinist was only 13 years old. They are coming to the state of Washington in September to perform. Their performance was amazing and many of us went home with a copy of their CD. Music is very important to the Cuban people and at every meal there was a small group playing for us. After a few days in Havana, we visited Hotel Brisas Trinidad del Mar which was an all inclusive hotel on the beach. The beaches are amazing and unfortunately, we did not have enough time to enjoy them as our days were full with sightseeing. Here we were taught how to Salsa. I can say I did not master the dance but it is a workout just learning. The goal of the tour was to meet the people and learn about the food, culture and music of Cuba. We visited a sugar cane plantation. Many of the sugar cane plantations were shut down after the U.S. pulled out of Cuba. There are only 55 plantations in operation today. We got to taste the liquid from freshly squeezed sugar cane. It is very sweet and one is always treated to a great drink made with their rum. Their rum cannot be brought back to the U.S. along with cigars and Cuban coffee. We visited a cigar factory and one can understand the reason for the expense of cigars as everything is done by hand. You could smoke as many as you wanted but you could not take any out of the country legally. After two nights in Trinidad, we headed back to Havana. We visited Playa Giron which is the site of the historical 1961 clash between the CIA trained Cuban exiles and the rebel forces. Many say this event defined U.S.Cuban relations. We also toured the Bay of Pigs Museum. No visit to Cuba would be complete without visiting the home of the most famous American to live in Cuba Earnest Hemingway. This home was purchased for $18,000 in the late 1930s. One can no longer go into the home but you can look from through the windows to see how Hemingway lived. What I CUBACONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 found interesting is that none of the books or magazines are protected. They sit on shelves or in baskets for you to view. The state was renovating the pool. Hemingways boat is also there. It is a beautiful home at a great location and, while we were there, a bride was having her pictures taken on the lawn. Many of the group went to the Tropicana to see the famed show. We were told that show has continued uninterrupted since the day of the revolution. The costumes and music were amazing. We also visited the International Hotel where many famous Americans had visited and performed. We heard great music and saw dancers. Of course, one is treated to the their famous Majos drinks. Another highlight for some of us was to see a Cuban baseball game. A group of American College All-Star players played one of the Cuban teams. The cost of the ticket for visitors was $3 and we sat right behind home plate. Ball, strikes and outs are called in English but they list strikes, balls, outs on the scoreboard. The U.S. won the opener 4-3 on Michael Confortos grand slam and Jonathan Crawfords 6 1-3 innings of strong pitching. Crawford plays for the University of Florida. It was exciting and there were many Americans there. We met some people that were there for an educational tour and they had entered Cuba via Canada. This is illegal for American and they were surprised that we had come from Miami. For me, the experience was truly humbling. I came home appreciating so much of what I have. We talk about our freedoms of which we have many, but like our guide said, freedom is ones perception. He felt Americans, especially smokers, had little freedom as to where they can smoke. You can smoke most places in Cuba. My roommate, Rita Levy, enjoyed the interaction with parents and students at the band concert we heard. These young students were amazing and they had only studied their respective instruments for less than six months. She felt that the Cuban mothers have the same aspirations as we do for our children. Stone Creek resident Diane Callahan said, The trip was wonderful and the people were generously welcoming. Our itinerary took us to many beautiful and culturally interesting places. Disturbing, however, was the extreme poverty of the Cuban people.Patricia Gizzi is a former Stone Creek correspondent for the West Marion Messenger. A busy street in Cuba.

Of course Im lonely, he said, Ive spent the past 20 years in prison. Youre kidding! What for? For killing my second wife. I strangled her. What happened to your first wife? I shot her. Oh my, said Sally. Returning to her friend, she said, Esther, hes single.ShortsA Florida State University student accidentally swallowed a frog. A hospital nurse reported that he might croak any minute. Jones is such a thief, said Davis, Im afraid hes going to steal this new golf ball of mine. Sammy replied, I wouldnt putt it past him. In Florida they use alligators to make handbags and shoes. Its amazing what they can train animals to do these days. I have to walk early in the morning before my brain figures out what Im doing. A woman called the Ocala airport and said, I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of those computer planes. The clerk asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane. She said, Yeah, whatever.Real estateAfter the Florida real estate crash in 1926, a man sued Mizner to recover the purchase price of a barren lot, asserting that Mizner had falsely informed him that be could grow nuts on it. Did you tell the plaintiff that he could grow nuts on this land? Mizner was asked. Oh, no, replied Mizner, I told him he could go nuts on it. The jury decided in Mizners favor.Say it s-l-o-w-l-yA man and his wife, driving their RV across Florida, were nearing Kissimmee. They noted the strange spelling and tried to figure how to pronounce it KISS-ame; kis-A-me; kis-a-ME? They grew more perplexed as they drove into the town. Since they were hungry, they stopped at a fast food restaurant. At the counter, the man said to the clerk, My wife and I cant seem to be able to figure out how to pronounce this place. Will you tell me where we are and say it very slowly so that I can understand? The clerk looked at him and said; Buuurrrgerrr Kiiiinnnng.

Moose Lodge activities GONE GIRL By Gillian FlynnWhat if a man captures an amazing girl for his wifea beautiful, smart, dazzling creature whos also rich, someone he never dreamed would marry him? And then over the years this same celestial being starts coming unraveled to reveal a strager he doesnt even like. And then she disappears. So what then? Gone Girl begins quietly with newlyweds Amy and Nick Dunne coasting happily from day to day in sunny Manhattan. Out of the blue both lose the jobs they love and Nicks ailing parents need help in his Midwest hometown of Carthage, Missouri. Amy is more than just vaguely distressed by the move on top of losing her job and forking over most of her substantial trust account money to her financially strapped parents. Even so, her disappearance without a trace is unfathomable. Nick reflects on the situation: The police werent going to find Amy unless someone wanted her found. That much was clear. Everything green and brown had been searched: miles of the muddy Mississippi River, all the trails and hiking paths, our sad recollection of patchy woods. If she were dead nature would have to give her up. Despite the circumstances Nick is relatively optimistic and as the investigation goes on he dusts himself off and keeps moving forward unaware that the focus is on him as Amys killer or that his secret affair with a young student has been uncovered. At this juncture in the novel the point of view shifts from Amys diary to Nicks thoughts and memories. And its soon hard to figure out where the real Amy we thought we knew ends and the strange diary Amy begins. And neither Dunne seems disposed to telling the truth. Flynns book has received enormous media hype culminating in actress Reese Witherspoons purchase of the film rights. For once a novel seems to deserve its hype although I quibble with the ending. This novel deserves its hype BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Read the classifieds No bingo in Marion OaksThe Marion Oaks Civic Association announces that through Sept. 4, bingo will be closed for scheduled maintenance to the auditorium.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com In its July-August Bulletin, AARP suggested our national leaders should rediscover the good sense, greatness, and learning of the founding fathers, and discontinue their 21st century explosion of vanity, ideology, and shortsightedness. AARPs wishful thinking is farfetched. There is little likelihood that well wake up one morning to find Congressional leaders Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi emulating the experience and leadership of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. Todays leaders are professional politicians. Former Illinois congressman and senator Everett Dirksen, a 42-year politician himself, described the dedication and commitment of 20th century politicians in a characteristically jocular comment: During a political campaign everyone is concerned with what a candidate will do on this or that question if he is elected except the candidate. Hes busy wondering what hell do if he doesnt get elected. The founding fathers didnt have to wonder. They were volunteer patriots and temporary politicians, men of significant individual accomplishments soldiers, scholars, manufacturers, traders, farmers, businessmen, doctors, lawyers, and statesmen. The founders were educated and well read. Many were homeschooled. They knew world history and were well versed in the contents of the old and new testaments. Mr. Jefferson could read the new testament in Greek, Latin, and French. What the founders had in mind when they were inventing our nation in 1787 was described nicely in British journalist Alistair Cookes America (1973): They were big men where they came from, and sensitive to the powers and privileges they might have to give up in order to create the United States. What are todays leaders willing to give up? The founders and the colonies they represented were already settled in their ideas of what constituted civilized society. Their representatives and public servants were chosen by popular local elections. However, in their discussions about forming a new nation a democracy was not considered. The word had an overtone of disgrace and was thought by some delegates to refer to mob rule. We find it stupefying that many Americans, particularly members of the broadcast media, persist in referring to the U.S. government as our democracy. Washington and Madison in particular considered democracies dangerous, because they breed political parties and demagogues a first step toward dictatorship. George Washington warned the constitutional convention that political parties provoke mischief and conflict. AARP suggests hopefully that todays political leaders get along based on the core principles and liberties which produced a carefully balanced national government 236 years ago. Quoting our second president, John Adams, AARP suggests decency, respect, and veneration can produce compromises even in an atmosphere of gigantic challenges. We dont think so. Amid worldwide financial upsets, our political parties are pulling in opposite directions Democrats toward a European style social democracy and Republicans toward reviving American leadership in multinational commerce. Our major political parties are in a private vs. public tug-of-war. Washington was right mischief and conflict. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 20, 2012 PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.Groups or individuals are invited to express their opinions in letters to the editor and guest columns.Persons wishing to contact the editor should call 854-3986.All letters must be signed and include a phone number and community name, including letters sent via e-mail.

The recent attempted robbery and subsequent shooting of the suspects at an Internet caf raises some questions about security at these establishments that have popped up all over Marion County. The caf, one of several along State Road 200, was entered by two young men, one armed with a gun and the other with a baseball bat, seemingly with the intent of robbery. Unknown to them, one of the patrons was also carrying a weapon, and he came up shooting, chasing both men from the store and locking the door behind them. No one is seeking penalties against the patron, who undoubtedly saved the customers from being robbed and perhaps worse. He reportedly had a concealed weapons permit, and although he was close to the suspects, he apparently didnt shoot to kill, so he did a lot of things right. In fact, the two men got away, only to be apprehended when they called for medical help and deputies were notified. But the fact that a customer was able to walk into a establishment such as this, fully armed, without being checked by anyone is a little disconcerting. In this case, he was the good guy. But what if that werent so? Was there no security to check people for weapons, especially at a business that deals in a lot of cash? Maybe the county and/or state ought to tighten up regulations on these establishments, making sure that they have things in place to protect their customers. In the meantime, when you go into an Internet caf, look around and see if you can find out who has a weapon. If you locate one, just hope that the person packing is on your side, especially if the bad guys come calling. Word has arrived about another scam that has arrived in the area. Someone claiming to be from Microsoft calls your house and says you have trouble with your computer. She wants you to go to a certain website where she will tell you how to fix the problem. Of course, if you go to that website, youre trapped. Best way to handle this type of call, which can get aggressive if you say no, is to hang up.

Democrats in Marion County cant vote in two County Commission races that will be all but decided in the Republican primary on Aug. 14, this despite a Florida constitutional amendment that was passed 14 years ago. That amendment called for the primary to be open to all if only one party fields candidates for a particular office. However, in an opinion issued back around 2000, then Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (remember her from the Bush election?) ruled that a write-in candidate who would be eligible to be voted on in the general election created an opportunity for the other party, and said that the first primary would be closed. That ruling still stands, and is the reason that the two races featuring incumbents Stan McClain and Mike Amsden are open only to Republicans. There are writein hopefuls in both races, although neither will be on the ballot in November. In many parts of the state its a sham, in which the party of the candidates has someone run as a write-in to make sure the other party cant vote in the primary. No write-in has ever won since this rule went into effect. Down in Miami-Dade, it has now gone to federal court. In the state attorneys race there, two Democrats, one an incumbent, are running, But just before the filing deadline, two write-in candidates filed, meaning that no Miami-Dade Republican can vote for state attorney in the primary. Two voters, one an Independent and the other a Republican, have gone to court. A federal judge threw out their original lawsuit against the supervisor of elections, but said that it should be re-filed to include the secretary of state and the state canvassing board. A hearing is set for next Monday, July 23. A favorable ruling could send shock waves throughout the state just three weeks before the Aug. 14 primary. Far more likely, however, is that the case will drag on and not be settled before this years election. It is something, however, to keep an eye on. There are two schools of though in this matter. One agrees with the fact that if no second party candidates are running, the primary should be open to all. The second says that if one party fields candidates and the second doesnt, thats the fault of the members of the second party, and the voters of the party that fields candidates should not be deprived of voting for choosing their own nominee, even if that nominee is automatically elected. Maybe its time to get rid of, once and for all, the legacy of Katherine Harris. Well just have to wait and see what the court does.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Millage as a taxing entity, unfair to property ownersWell, theyre at it again. The county, whether it be teachers, hospitals or any other group, wants to use millage rates as the method to raise money for any county project. Not fair or realistic. We know Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) wants a one mill increase in real estate taxes, to provide money to help the hospital out of a financial crisis. Then along comes the county school system, with a millage increase proposal for teachers and one for the same amount for school operations. Now, if both MRMC and the school millage proposals pass, which I dont think will happen, it would represent a $200 increase in real estate taxes per $100,000 of property value. Now, this seems like a good idea for those who dont own property in Marion County. Back in 1964, when I first came to the area, there was a millage battle with county commissioners and the populace, regarding funding for schools. Senior citizens felt they should not be paying taxes to educate young parents children, and to their credit, they were right. In a sense. But of course other people, older than themselves, helped fund their childrens education, and In those instances they both had a point. But both groups were boondoggled. To rely solely on property owners for tax money to fund any county or state project is not equitable. Schools, hospitals, roads, parks, etc., are a benefit to the total population, and so should be supported, through funding by the total population. Think of all the communities west of I-75, which are primarily senior citizen communities, as is the Villages and even a great proportion of those in eastern Marion County.

What about the rest of the population who will benefit from good old grandma and grandpa again? I dont know why the county commissioners support millage rate increases, rather than across the board small sales tax increases. Even tourists would be supporting our community. In that light, even the tourism commission wants to raise taxes on tourists. Where will it all end? Ive discussed these millage increases with many in my peer group, and not one, whom Ive talked to, is supporting any millage increase. If you will recall, this country was founded on the premise of, taxation without representation. Now we have taxation without full residential responsibility. In a sense the same thing. At least back in the 1700s, we had our own people looking out for us. Not the same prevails now. Ive already sent in my absentee ballot and of course the two school millage proposals were on the ballot. Again, in my opinion, neither the school nor hospital millage increase will pass and that will not help either schools or MRMC. Im certainly hoping, after the upcoming elections., we are represented by a more intelligent and responsible county commission. To lean on property owners and let the rest of the residents of Marion county be freeloaders, is irresponsible management.

Trudy Bliss Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder It is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs fly. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs fly. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs fly. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can fly. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off Pigs can fly, but certainly not with me when it comes to flying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors flying around, I have more reasons not to like flying. I think the cost of flying his discouraged me from enjoying the flight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extricate myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of flying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I fly just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like flying has to do with the seats. Whoever designed airline seats never had an encounter with a real man. I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly-challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly-challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to fly the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of flying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 In 1513, Ponce de Len, seeking the mythical Fountain of Youth, discovered and named Florida, claiming it for Spain. Last Wednesday 191 years ago Spain ceded Florida to the United States, according to terms of the AdamsOns Treaty. Just think, if Florida still belonged to Spain, most everyone here would be speaking Spanish.The beginningWhen God was resting on the seventh day after creating the heavens and the earth, He and Archangel Michael were looking upon the earth and noticing the different areas; some were extremely hot and arid while others were very cold and covered in ice. The Archangel, impressed by Gods work, pointed to a large land mass and said, Whats that one? Ah, said God. Thats Florida, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and climate. The people in Florida are going to be modest, extremely sociable, intelligent and humorous. Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, It looks like paradise. But, the only paradise is here in heaven God replied wisely, Wait until you see the people Ill send them from the North every winter.For the birdsA retired biologist ran a small aviary on the Florida Keys, counting on tourists for some income. Most of the time he would lull in his hammock, enjoying the warm tropical breezes and occasionally falling asleep. Every evening he had to lock all the cages so the birds couldnt fly off. One afternoon his siesta lasted too long. When he arrived late he locked up the birdcages; but he forgot about the enclosure that housed the Florida Bay Seagulls. They had all escaped that night, flying away in search of food and freedom, all because he had forgotten to put the locks on the Bay Gulls.The new resident Esther and Sally, two widows in a Florida retirement community, were curious about the latest arrival, a quiet, nice looking gentleman.

A special Sunday service was held recently at College Road Baptist Church in which eight members were commissioned for mission trips abroad. Seven of them, in the lightcolored shirts, will go to the Dominican Republic for one week to minister to 800 children with a Vacation Bible School program. From left to right they are Trina Loy (preschool ministry leader), Rachel Loy, Amanda Haddad, Peter Kaminski, Robert Loy, Eugene Harper, and Rev. Rob Loy. In the middle of the group, Katherine Sanz, will go to Mongolia to help distribute the shoeboxes which were filled in the Operation Christmas Shoebox drive last November. 200,000 of these boxes were collected across the nation filled with school supplies, small toys, hygiene items, etc. for children ages 2-14. Katherine was selected as one of 20 young adults from several hundred applicants to visit villages and minister to the local people as well as sharing the excitement of the children as they open their special boxes. Katherine is a student at West Port High school, and lives in Fore Ranch with her parents. They came to the United States from Colombia 12 years ago, and Katherine joined the Youth group at the church where her mother attends the ESL classes. Katherine will graduate from West Port in June, as well as receive her Associate Degree from the College of Central Florida where she has been duallyenrolled and has maintained a 4.7 GPA. people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to fly on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so, I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a wellknown fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a reflection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you fly the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

President Dwight Eisenhower was the first president to participate in a national TV program sponsored by a Jewish organization. On this network show, he expressed his satisfaction for his part in bringing the Nazi regime and its atrocities toward the Jews in Europe to a halt. He was glad that the survivors could live in peace and freedom in Israel. The first Catholic president appointed two Jews to his cabinet, Abraham Ribicoff as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare (he grew up in my hometown of New Britain, Connecticut; he became famous; I did not.) and Arthur Goldberg as Secretary of Labor. A national Jewish award for peace sponsored by the Synagogue Council of America was renamed the John F. Kennedy Peace Award after his assassination in 1963. Richard Nixon appointed the first Jewish Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. Nixon is credited with saving Israel from destruction during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 with an airlift of arms. This decision, solidifying American support for the Jewish State, resulted in the Arab Oil Embargo. A mild-mannered peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia, successfully negotiated one of the most famous peace accords between Israel and then most dangerous enemy, Egypt. James Earl Carter was able to bring Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat to the peace table, the first treaty between Israel and an Arab country. The treaty is still in force today. The iconic picture of the signing still is a powerful statement. Unfortunately, as of late, the now former president has been critical of Israeli policies concerning the Palestinians. When George H. W. Bush was Vice President, he played a personal role in Operation Joshua, the program that airlifted 10,000 Jews out of Ethiopia and directly to Israel. This was in 1985. As president, in 1991, he took an important role in Operation Solomon, allowing 14,000 Jews to escape Ethiopia and to resettle in Israel. (When I visited Israel in 1991, I met some of these refugees) However, it was a coup for him when he was able to get the U.N. to rescind its 1975 Zionism is Racism resolution. By the time of the 1990s, the appointment of Jews by presidents to high positions in government was more commonplace. Bill Clinton appointed more Jews to his Cabinet than all other presidents before him, namely Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer to the Supreme Court, both first appointed by President Jimmy Carter. Clinton had 43 Jews in staff positions including Robert Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury, Dan Glickman, Secretary of Agriculture, Stuart Eizenstat, Under Secretary of State and Samuel Berger, National Security Council advisor to Hail to the Chiefs Part 2 JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE11 The Lets Go To The Hop! dance will take place on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at Palm Grove featuring music by The Dukes.

Cindy Kocher was closest to pin on #16.Royal Oaks Mens GolfThirty five players braved the dreaded curse of Friday the 13th, and played on a much cooler day. A light breeze made it even more pleasant, and the scores reflected the day and the game. The format was a Shambles, in which all drive and then select the best drive. From there each person plays his own ball the rest of the way, with the scoring being the usual three best net. The winner with a 169 (the score was verified by an independent board!) was the team of Ron Catapano, Vince Connolly, Paul Valois, and Jan Flickinger. Second with a 172 were Bruce Stover, Dick Rizzo, Dick Feltenberger, and Mike Madill. A tie for third at 181 were the teams of Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens, John Foutty, and Steve Casner, and Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Bill Start, and Steve Szabo. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Chuck Engel, and Jan Flickinger. Note that Engel missed a hole in one by about 6 inches. Way to go, Chuck! See you all next week.

devastated by the loss of Samuel. They wouldnt take the chance of losing another son in a far off place. While Kens father was an air raid warden and patrolled at night, Ken and his mother would find safety in their Anderson Shelter. These corrugated steel tubes were buried in the back yards of residences and protected people from anything but a direct hit by the bombs. Until 1945 Ken and his mother and father lived a life of depravation and suffering. Ever mindful of the dangers, they still managed to face each day with a curious mixture of courage and humor; two of the qualities that Ken keeps today. After the war Ken joined the Royal Air Force. He was a qualified wireless operator; navigator and a Glider Pilot. In 1954 he was involved with the computerization of the Royal Air Force aircraft readiness status. Computers were just coming into use at that time and he was at the forefront of those efforts. Through his diligence, he was able to keep a running list of aircraft available for service on any given day. As a special reward, Ken served on the Honor Guard for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Ironically, his wife Susanne watched the ceremony on a big screen TV in her Junior High School class in Massachusetts. Graduating from London University with a degree in Industrial Engineering, Ken worked in the blossoming Integrated Circuits field until 1965. At that time he was called to the United States for a job interview. He took a position with Raytheon in Redding, Massachusetts, and in 1971 he became a U.S. citizen. In 1978, friends fixed Susanne and Ken up on a blind date. After that first meeting, Ken called her every night and day. They spent their weekends going to the local clubs that featured Greek line dancing. Susanne says she was swept off her feet and fell for his captivating British accent. Its hard to tell who was swept off their feet when talking with Ken. It seems to have been mutual. Six months later, they were married. A second marriage for both, they shared three children. Ken has a daughter, Julia who lives in New Hampshire and Susanne has a son David who lives Cape Neddick, Maine. Kens son Grahame tragically passed away four years ago from a sudden heart attack. Susanne and Ken have five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren whom they love very much. After their retirement, Kenny was out doing the snow blowing on their property. He came inside and made the executive decision that snow was not one of his favorite things. Susanne laughed at the fact that for 25 years she had shoveled the cold white stuff and after just one month, Ken was ready to call it quits. They decided that Florida would be a much better place to live than Massachusetts so the two of them began checking for retirement sites with the AARP. They found Ocala and eventually Cherrywood after researching nine other communities. Ken had three criteria for his new home. He wanted his own home, not a town house or condo; it had to be block construction and it had to have a garage. They found all of that and more in our active community. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club; Past Vice President of the Democratic Club and a Mason. In addition, you will see Susanne and Kenny at several of the functions here at Cherrywood. They have many friends and their love of people and joy for life shows through in all they do. They are truly an asset to our community.

Madeline Albright, Secretary of State, had Jewish parents but was raised as a Christian. William Cohen, who has an obvious Jewish-sounding name, is actually a Unitarian. George W. Bush has the distinction of assembling the largest group of Jewish Neo-Conservatives in history. (Jews tend to vote Democratic and are liberal, in the most part, in their political views). The list included Richard Perle, Chair of the Pentagons Defense policy Board and Deputy defense secretary, Paul Wolfowits along with Under Secretary of Defense Douglas Feith. Dov Zakheim Edward Luttwak Paul Adelman and National Security Advisor, Elliott Abrams. And the presidents spokesman, Ari Fleisher, kept us up to date with presidential announcements. Bushs most important Jewish appointment after 9/11 was Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security and coauthor of the Patriot Act. Bush was also the first president to celebrate Chanukah in the White House. We might say, therefore, that in those years 2001-09, there was a Chanukah Bush as well as a Christmas tree in the White House! Barak Obama is credited with appointing Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, making it the most Jewish in American history with three justices of the Jewish faith on the bench. He has also surrounded himself with Jewish advisors including David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to the President (now his reelection campaign manager) Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff and the Sabbath observant Jack Lew as the new Chief of Staff. Though he has angered the Jewish community at times with his comments on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, in truth he has done much to insure Israels security from the toughest Iran sanctions legislation in history to prevent the build-up of nuclear weapons to diverting funds for innovative defense systems such as Iron Dome, to help shoot down Iranian-backed short range missiles being launched from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. President Obama was the first president to host a Passover seder in the White House residence. It is quite likely that gefilte fish graced the official White House china, a tradition that Obama has held for three years. Whoever is elected in November, be it President Obama or Mitt Romney, it will be interesting to see how history will play out in the appointment of Jews. From George Washingtons famous letter of ensuring religious freedom to Jews to the many presidential appointments especially in recent years, American Jews have been proud to serve their country.

Bunka Shishu: a popular classOften defined as painting with thread, Bunka Shishu is Japanese threedimensional thread art which uses a specialized embroidery needle and rayon thread to create very detailed pictures that look like original oil paintings. Its very addictive, easy to learn and an excellent exercise for anyone with arthritis. It keeps the fingers flexible, said Margaret Nelson, certified Bunka Shishu instructor with over 10 years of experience. Margaret is more than happy to share her passion for this beautiful art with her students and holds weekly classes for residents here in Marion Landing on Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. Completed projects should be framed to protect the thread and keep them clean, said Margaret. Students often give their framed projects as gifts to family and friends; and Margaret has sold some of her pictures to local businesses and individuals, but takes pride in noting that she has donated many of them to local churches and organizations for their fundraisers. If youd like to learn more about Bunka Shishu, stop by the Lifestyle Center, talk to Margaret and her students, and see some of the beautiful projects they are working on. You might even find that youd love to join the class.Shuffleboard tonight Tonight at 8 p.m.: its the women vs. the men for the rematch of the Shuffleboard Challenge.

This week we spotlight Kenneth Beech. If you have ever spoken with Ken you can from his distinctive accent that he was born in Great Britain; Bromborough Pool in the county of Cheshire to be exact. The town was just a short distance from Liverpool England, a major seaport. This fact played an important part in his childhood and young adult life. When Ken was only 5 years old, World War II broke out between England and the Axis powers. Because England is an island nation, all of its supplies for both domestic use and for the war effort had to be shipped into the country. This made the port of Liverpool a major target for German bombers. Shortly after the war began in September of 1939, the bombs began to fall. As Kenny described the frequent air raids that he endured, he smiled nervously and said, The Germans would bomb the harbor and anything they had left over, they dropped on us. Another incident happened at that time that had a profound effect on Ken. Many of the workers at the wharfs were Asians. One day, while riding a bus, a group of these workers were being heckled by some of the residents of Bromborough. When they were threatened with violence, Kennys Dad stood up. Ken describes his father as a big man, over six feet tall and muscular in build. When he rose from his seat he made it clear that anyone who was going to hurt the workers would have to go through him first. These men are here working to keep you alive, he remembered his father saying. That was Kens first experience with racial prejudice and the lesson of his father has stayed with him through out his life. Fearing for their childrens life, Kennys parents shipped him and his brother Samuel, off to Wales along with many other local youngsters. This happened all over England during the war years as parents sought to protect their young ones. Wales was a safer place than England as far as air raids went but it was not safe from all dangers. Samuel, Kens brother, was struck with diphtheria and two weeks later passed away. Ken was immediately summoned home by his parents who were Susanne and Ken Beech.

Memorial Committee formedRuth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling have formed a Memorial Committee to assist Veterans Club families who have lost a loved one and who want to use the clubhouse for Memorial Service receptions. When a family is holding a reception following a funeral there is a need for helping hands to coordinate all aspects of that function; from set up to clean up. The Veterans Club honors each deceased member by putting their name on the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. The Memorial Committee will ensure that this is accomplished and that proper respect is shown to our passing service men and women. This committee will be of great value to grieving families providing the support and help that they so richly deserve. Because Cherrywood has a reputation for First Welcoming Committee Coffee greets new residents caring, and taking care of our own, we encourage our residents to participate in this endeavor. You can contact Ruth; Eve or tell Geri in the office if you wish to serve on this very worthwhile committee. Members of the Veterans Club are especially welcome.

Eve Houghtaling briefed the group about the various social opportunities available to everyone; Gen Downs spoke about the exercise classes; Ruth Hurley spoke on Veterans Club opportunities and Rich Becotte enlightened everyone about the friendly atmosphere and ease of living in Cherrywood. We hope that the attendees felt welcome and got some useful information from the packet that was handed out concerning the services of Marion County and the many chances to socialize in this community. Another coffee hour is planned in October and we look forward to bringing more people into our Cherrywood family.Golfers WantedDid you know that Cherrywood has an opportunity for residents who are into golf? Neither did I until this week. The club is called SW200 Club and is made up Cherrywood and other over 55 communities in the area. Rich Hurely is the driving force behind this group so dont putter around; strike while the iron is hot and give him a call at 352-871-7208 or contact club secretray Marko Popin at dynamite@lightingspeed.net The SW200 Golf Club; youll have a ball! Memorial Committee formedRuth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling have formed a Memorial Committee to assist Veterans Club families who have lost a loved one and who want to use the clubhouse for Memorial Service receptions. When a family is holding a reception following a funeral there is a need for helping hands to coordinate all aspects of that function; from set up to clean up. The Veterans Club honors each deceased member by putting their name on the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. The Memorial Committee will ensure that this is accomplished and that proper respect is shown to our passing service men and women. This committee will be of great value to grieving families providing the support and help that they so richly deserve. Because Cherrywood has a reputation for First Welcoming Committee Coffee greets new residents caring, and taking care of our own, we encourage our residents to participate in this endeavor. You can contact Ruth; Eve or tell Geri in the office if you wish to serve on this very worthwhile committee. Members of the Veterans Club are especially welcome.

Bunka Shishu: a popular classOften defined as painting with thread, Bunka Shishu is Japanese threedimensional thread art which uses a specialized embroidery needle and rayon thread to create very detailed pictures that look like original oil paintings. Its very addictive, easy to learn and an excellent exercise for anyone with arthritis. It keeps the fingers flexible, said Margaret Nelson, certified Bunka Shishu instructor with over 10 years of experience. Margaret is more than happy to share her passion for this beautiful art with her students and holds weekly classes for residents here in Marion Landing on Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. Completed projects should be framed to protect the thread and keep them clean, said Margaret. Students often give their framed projects as gifts to family and friends; and Margaret has sold some of her pictures to local businesses and individuals, but takes pride in noting that she has donated many of them to local churches and organizations for their fundraisers. If youd like to learn more about Bunka Shishu, stop by the Lifestyle Center, talk to Margaret and her students, and see some of the beautiful projects they are working on.

The United Way of Marion County has partnered with the Marion County School System and the Early Learning Coalition to provide low reading score students a Reading Pal. What is that you might ask? A Reading Pal is a volunteer who has been provided specialized training who goes into the classroom for one hour per week on designated weeks. This volunteer will read to the student; do a prescribed activity and upon completion of reading the book; the child will take the book home to build their own personal library. As an in-school volunteer you will be assigned to a targeted school near your home.

This week we spotlight Kenneth Beech. If you have ever spoken with Ken you can from his distinctive accent that he was born in Great Britain; Bromborough Pool in the county of Cheshire to be exact. The town was just a short distance from Liverpool England, a major seaport. This fact played an important part in his childhood and young adult life. When Ken was only 5 years old, World War II broke out between England and the Axis powers. Because England is an island nation, all of its supplies for both domestic use and for the war effort had to be shipped into the country. This made the port of Liverpool a major target for German bombers. Shortly after the war began in September of 1939, the bombs began to fall. As Kenny described the frequent air raids that he endured, he smiled nervously and said, The Germans would bomb the harbor and anything they had left over, they dropped on us. Another incident happened at that time that had a profound effect on Ken. Many of the workers at the wharfs were Asians. One day, while riding a bus, a group of these workers were being heckled by some of the residents of Bromborough. When they were threatened with violence, Kennys Dad stood up. Ken describes his father as a big man, over six feet tall and muscular in build. When he rose from his seat he made it clear that anyone who was going to hurt the workers would have to go through him first. These men are here working to keep you alive, he remembered his father saying. That was Kens first experience with racial prejudice and the lesson of his father has stayed with him through out his life. Fearing for their childrens life, Kennys parents shipped him and his brother Samuel, off to Wales along with many other local youngsters. This happened all over England during the war years as parents sought to protect their young ones. Wales was a safer place than England as far as air raids went but it was not safe from all dangers. Samuel, Kens brother, was struck with diphtheria and two weeks later passed away. Ken was immediately summoned home by his parents who were Susanne and Ken Beech.

devastated by the loss of Samuel. They wouldnt take the chance of losing another son in a far off place. While Kens father was an air raid warden and patrolled at night, Ken and his mother would find safety in their Anderson Shelter. These corrugated steel tubes were buried in the back yards of residences and protected people from anything but a direct hit by the bombs. Until 1945 Ken and his mother and father lived a life of depravation and suffering. Ever mindful of the dangers, they still managed to face each day with a curious mixture of courage and humor; two of the qualities that Ken keeps today. After the war Ken joined the Royal Air Force. He was a qualified wireless operator; navigator and a Glider Pilot. In 1954 he was involved with the computerization of the Royal Air Force aircraft readiness status. Computers were just coming into use at that time and he was at the forefront of those efforts. Through his diligence, he was able to keep a running list of aircraft available for service on any given day. As a special reward, Ken served on the Honor Guard for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Ironically, his wife Susanne watched the ceremony on a big screen TV in her Junior High School class in Massachusetts. Graduating from London University with a degree in Industrial Engineering, Ken worked in the blossoming Integrated Circuits field until 1965. At that time he was called to the United States for a job interview. He took a position with Raytheon in Redding, Massachusetts, and in 1971 he became a U.S. citizen. In 1978, friends fixed Susanne and Ken up on a blind date. After that first meeting, Ken called her every night and day. They spent their weekends going to the local clubs that featured Greek line dancing. Susanne says she was swept off her feet and fell for his captivating British accent. Its hard to tell who was swept off their feet when talking with Ken. It seems to have been mutual. Six months later, they were married. A second marriage for both, they shared three children. Ken has a daughter, Julia who lives in New Hampshire and Susanne has a son David who lives Cape Neddick, Maine. Kens son Grahame tragically passed away four years ago from a sudden heart attack. Susanne and Ken have five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren whom they love very much. After their retirement, Kenny was out doing the snow blowing on their property. He came inside and made the executive decision that snow was not one of his favorite things. Susanne laughed at the fact that for 25 years she had shoveled the cold white stuff and after just one month, Ken was ready to call it quits. They decided that Florida would be a much better place to live than Massachusetts so the two of them began checking for retirement sites with the AARP. They found Ocala and eventually Cherrywood after researching nine other communities. Ken had three criteria for his new home. He wanted his own home, not a town house or condo; it had to be block construction and it had to have a garage. They found all of that and more in our active community. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club; Past Vice President of the Democratic Club and a Mason. In addition, you will see Susanne and Kenny at several of the functions here at Cherrywood. They have many friends and their love of people and joy for life shows through in all they do. They are truly an asset to our community.

Madeline Albright, Secretary of State, had Jewish parents but was raised as a Christian. William Cohen, who has an obvious Jewish-sounding name, is actually a Unitarian. George W. Bush has the distinction of assembling the largest group of Jewish Neo-Conservatives in history. (Jews tend to vote Democratic and are liberal, in the most part, in their political views). The list included Richard Perle, Chair of the Pentagons Defense policy Board and Deputy defense secretary, Paul Wolfowits along with Under Secretary of Defense Douglas Feith. Dov Zakheim Edward Luttwak Paul Adelman and National Security Advisor, Elliott Abrams. And the presidents spokesman, Ari Fleisher, kept us up to date with presidential announcements. Bushs most important Jewish appointment after 9/11 was Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security and coauthor of the Patriot Act. Bush was also the first president to celebrate Chanukah in the White House. We might say, therefore, that in those years 2001-09, there was a Chanukah Bush as well as a Christmas tree in the White House! Barak Obama is credited with appointing Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, making it the most Jewish in American history with three justices of the Jewish faith on the bench. He has also surrounded himself with Jewish advisors including David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to the President (now his reelection campaign manager) Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff and the Sabbath observant Jack Lew as the new Chief of Staff. Though he has angered the Jewish community at times with his comments on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, in truth he has done much to insure Israels security from the toughest Iran sanctions legislation in history to prevent the build-up of nuclear weapons to diverting funds for innovative defense systems such as Iron Dome, to help shoot down Iranian-backed short range missiles being launched from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. President Obama was the first president to host a Passover seder in the White House residence. It is quite likely that gefilte fish graced the official White House china, a tradition that Obama has held for three years. Whoever is elected in November, be it President Obama or Mitt Romney, it will be interesting to see how history will play out in the appointment of Jews. From George Washingtons famous letter of ensuring religious freedom to Jews to the many presidential appointments especially in recent years, American Jews have been proud to serve their country.

A special Sunday service was held recently at College Road Baptist Church in which eight members were commissioned for mission trips abroad. Seven of them, in the lightcolored shirts, will go to the Dominican Republic for one week to minister to 800 children with a Vacation Bible School program. From left to right they are Trina Loy (preschool ministry leader), Rachel Loy, Amanda Haddad, Peter Kaminski, Robert Loy, Eugene Harper, and Rev. Rob Loy. In the middle of the group, Katherine Sanz, will go to Mongolia to help distribute the shoeboxes which were filled in the Operation Christmas Shoebox drive last November. 200,000 of these boxes were collected across the nation filled with school supplies, small toys, hygiene items, etc. for children ages 2-14. Katherine was selected as one of 20 young adults from several hundred applicants to visit villages and minister to the local people as well as sharing the excitement of the children as they open their special boxes. Katherine is a student at West Port High school, and lives in Fore Ranch with her parents. They came to the United States from Colombia 12 years ago, and Katherine joined the Youth group at the church where her mother attends the ESL classes. Katherine will graduate from West Port in June, as well as receive her Associate Degree from the College of Central Florida where she has been duallyenrolled and has maintained a 4.7 GPA. people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to fly on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so, I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a wellknown fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a reflection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you fly the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

President Dwight Eisenhower was the first president to participate in a national TV program sponsored by a Jewish organization. On this network show, he expressed his satisfaction for his part in bringing the Nazi regime and its atrocities toward the Jews in Europe to a halt. He was glad that the survivors could live in peace and freedom in Israel. The first Catholic president appointed two Jews to his cabinet, Abraham Ribicoff as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare (he grew up in my hometown of New Britain, Connecticut; he became famous; I did not.) and Arthur Goldberg as Secretary of Labor. A national Jewish award for peace sponsored by the Synagogue Council of America was renamed the John F. Kennedy Peace Award after his assassination in 1963. Richard Nixon appointed the first Jewish Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. Nixon is credited with saving Israel from destruction during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 with an airlift of arms. This decision, solidifying American support for the Jewish State, resulted in the Arab Oil Embargo. A mild-mannered peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia, successfully negotiated one of the most famous peace accords between Israel and then most dangerous enemy, Egypt. James Earl Carter was able to bring Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat to the peace table, the first treaty between Israel and an Arab country. The treaty is still in force today. The iconic picture of the signing still is a powerful statement. Unfortunately, as of late, the now former president has been critical of Israeli policies concerning the Palestinians. When George H. W. Bush was Vice President, he played a personal role in Operation Joshua, the program that airlifted 10,000 Jews out of Ethiopia and directly to Israel. This was in 1985. As president, in 1991, he took an important role in Operation Solomon, allowing 14,000 Jews to escape Ethiopia and to resettle in Israel. (When I visited Israel in 1991, I met some of these refugees) However, it was a coup for him when he was able to get the U.N. to rescind its 1975 Zionism is Racism resolution. By the time of the 1990s, the appointment of Jews by presidents to high positions in government was more commonplace. Bill Clinton appointed more Jews to his Cabinet than all other presidents before him, namely Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer to the Supreme Court, both first appointed by President Jimmy Carter. Clinton had 43 Jews in staff positions including Robert Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury, Dan Glickman, Secretary of Agriculture, Stuart Eizenstat, Under Secretary of State and Samuel Berger, National Security Council advisor to Hail to the Chiefs Part 2 JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE11 The Lets Go To The Hop! dance will take place on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at Palm Grove featuring music by The Dukes.

A light breeze made it even more pleasant, and the scores reflected the day and the game. The format was a Shambles, in which all drive and then select the best drive. From there each person plays his own ball the rest of the way, with the scoring being the usual three best net. The winner with a 169 (the score was verified by an independent board!) was the team of Ron Catapano, Vince Connolly, Paul Valois, and Jan Flickinger. Second with a 172 were Bruce Stover, Dick Rizzo, Dick Feltenberger, and Mike Madill. A tie for third at 181 were the teams of Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens, John Foutty, and Steve Casner, and Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Bill Start, and Steve Szabo. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Chuck Engel, and Jan Flickinger. Note that Engel missed a hole in one by about 6 inches. Way to go, Chuck! See you all next week. Enjoy the golf on the green and lush course.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com older population is asked again, to support the rest of the county through a millage increase. Not fair! What about the rest of the population who will benefit from good old grandma and grandpa again? I dont know why the county commissioners support millage rate increases, rather than across the board small sales tax increases. Even tourists would be supporting our community. In that light, even the tourism commission wants to raise taxes on tourists. Where will it all end? Ive discussed these millage increases with many in my peer group, and not one, whom Ive talked to, is supporting any millage increase. If you will recall, this country was founded on the premise of, taxation without representation. Now we have taxation without full residential responsibility. In a sense the same thing. At least back in the 1700s, we had our own people looking out for us. Not the same prevails now. Ive already sent in my absentee ballot and of course the two school millage proposals were on the ballot. Again, in my opinion, neither the school nor hospital millage increase will pass and that will not help either schools or MRMC. Im certainly hoping, after the upcoming elections., we are represented by a more intelligent and responsible county commission. To lean on property owners and let the rest of the residents of Marion county be freeloaders, is irresponsible management.

Trudy Bliss Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder It is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs fly. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs fly. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs fly. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can fly. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off Pigs can fly, but certainly not with me when it comes to flying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors flying around, I have more reasons not to like flying. I think the cost of flying his discouraged me from enjoying the flight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extricate myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of flying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I fly just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like flying has to do with the seats. Whoever designed airline seats never had an encounter with a real man. I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly-challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly-challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to fly the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of flying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 In 1513, Ponce de Len, seeking the mythical Fountain of Youth, discovered and named Florida, claiming it for Spain. Last Wednesday 191 years ago Spain ceded Florida to the United States, according to terms of the AdamsOns Treaty. Just think, if Florida still belonged to Spain, most everyone here would be speaking Spanish.The beginningWhen God was resting on the seventh day after creating the heavens and the earth, He and Archangel Michael were looking upon the earth and noticing the different areas; some were extremely hot and arid while others were very cold and covered in ice. The Archangel, impressed by Gods work, pointed to a large land mass and said, Whats that one? Ah, said God. Thats Florida, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and climate. The people in Florida are going to be modest, extremely sociable, intelligent and humorous. Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, It looks like paradise. But, the only paradise is here in heaven God replied wisely, Wait until you see the people Ill send them from the North every winter.For the birdsA retired biologist ran a small aviary on the Florida Keys, counting on tourists for some income. Most of the time he would lull in his hammock, enjoying the warm tropical breezes and occasionally falling asleep. Every evening he had to lock all the cages so the birds couldnt fly off. One afternoon his siesta lasted too long. When he arrived late he locked up the birdcages; but he forgot about the enclosure that housed the Florida Bay Seagulls. They had all escaped that night, flying away in search of food and freedom, all because he had forgotten to put the locks on the Bay Gulls.The new resident Esther and Sally, two widows in a Florida retirement community, were curious about the latest arrival, a quiet, nice looking gentleman. Esther said, Sally, why dont you go over to him at the pool and find out a little about him.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com In its July-August Bulletin, AARP suggested our national leaders should rediscover the good sense, greatness, and learning of the founding fathers, and discontinue their 21st century explosion of vanity, ideology, and shortsightedness. AARPs wishful thinking is farfetched. There is little likelihood that well wake up one morning to find Congressional leaders Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi emulating the experience and leadership of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. Todays leaders are professional politicians. Former Illinois congressman and senator Everett Dirksen, a 42-year politician himself, described the dedication and commitment of 20th century politicians in a characteristically jocular comment: During a political campaign everyone is concerned with what a candidate will do on this or that question if he is elected except the candidate. Hes busy wondering what hell do if he doesnt get elected. The founding fathers didnt have to wonder. They were volunteer patriots and temporary politicians, men of significant individual accomplishments soldiers, scholars, manufacturers, traders, farmers, businessmen, doctors, lawyers, and statesmen. The founders were educated and well read. Many were homeschooled. They knew world history and were well versed in the contents of the old and new testaments. Mr. Jefferson could read the new testament in Greek, Latin, and French. What the founders had in mind when they were inventing our nation in 1787 was described nicely in British journalist Alistair Cookes America (1973): They were big men where they came from, and sensitive to the powers and privileges they might have to give up in order to create the United States. What are todays leaders willing to give up? The founders and the colonies they represented were already settled in their ideas of what constituted civilized society. Their representatives and public servants were chosen by popular local elections. However, in their discussions about forming a new nation a democracy was not considered. The word had an overtone of disgrace and was thought by some delegates to refer to mob rule. We find it stupefying that many Americans, particularly members of the broadcast media, persist in referring to the U.S. government as our democracy. Washington and Madison in particular considered democracies dangerous, because they breed political parties and demagogues a first step toward dictatorship. George Washington warned the constitutional convention that political parties provoke mischief and conflict. AARP suggests hopefully that todays political leaders get along based on the core principles and liberties which produced a carefully balanced national government 236 years ago. Quoting our second president, John Adams, AARP suggests decency, respect, and veneration can produce compromises even in an atmosphere of gigantic challenges. We dont think so. Amid worldwide financial upsets, our political parties are pulling in opposite directions Democrats toward a European style social democracy and Republicans toward reviving American leadership in multinational commerce. Our major political parties are in a private vs. public tug-of-war. Washington was right mischief and conflict. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 20, 2012 PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.Groups or individuals are invited to express their opinions in letters to the editor and guest columns.Persons wishing to contact the editor should call 854-3986.All letters must be signed and include a phone number and community name, including letters sent via e-mail.

The recent attempted robbery and subsequent shooting of the suspects at an Internet caf raises some questions about security at these establishments that have popped up all over Marion County. The caf, one of several along State Road 200, was entered by two young men, one armed with a gun and the other with a baseball bat, seemingly with the intent of robbery. Unknown to them, one of the patrons was also carrying a weapon, and he came up shooting, chasing both men from the store and locking the door behind them. No one is seeking penalties against the patron, who undoubtedly saved the customers from being robbed and perhaps worse. He reportedly had a concealed weapons permit, and although he was close to the suspects, he apparently didnt shoot to kill, so he did a lot of things right. In fact, the two men got away, only to be apprehended when they called for medical help and deputies were notified. But the fact that a customer was able to walk into a establishment such as this, fully armed, without being checked by anyone is a little disconcerting. In this case, he was the good guy. But what if that werent so? Was there no security to check people for weapons, especially at a business that deals in a lot of cash? Maybe the county and/or state ought to tighten up regulations on these establishments, making sure that they have things in place to protect their customers. In the meantime, when you go into an Internet caf, look around and see if you can find out who has a weapon. If you locate one, just hope that the person packing is on your side, especially if the bad guys come calling. Word has arrived about another scam that has arrived in the area. Someone claiming to be from Microsoft calls your house and says you have trouble with your computer. She wants you to go to a certain website where she will tell you how to fix the problem. Of course, if you go to that website, youre trapped. Best way to handle this type of call, which can get aggressive if you say no, is to hang up. Dont give in to these scam artists.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being with people, and people love being with you. You would probably do very well in politics. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Democrats in Marion County cant vote in two County Commission races that will be all but decided in the Republican primary on Aug. 14, this despite a Florida constitutional amendment that was passed 14 years ago. That amendment called for the primary to be open to all if only one party fields candidates for a particular office. However, in an opinion issued back around 2000, then Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (remember her from the Bush election?) ruled that a write-in candidate who would be eligible to be voted on in the general election created an opportunity for the other party, and said that the first primary would be closed. That ruling still stands, and is the reason that the two races featuring incumbents Stan McClain and Mike Amsden are open only to Republicans. There are writein hopefuls in both races, although neither will be on the ballot in November. In many parts of the state its a sham, in which the party of the candidates has someone run as a write-in to make sure the other party cant vote in the primary. No write-in has ever won since this rule went into effect. Down in Miami-Dade, it has now gone to federal court. In the state attorneys race there, two Democrats, one an incumbent, are running, But just before the filing deadline, two write-in candidates filed, meaning that no Miami-Dade Republican can vote for state attorney in the primary. Two voters, one an Independent and the other a Republican, have gone to court. A federal judge threw out their original lawsuit against the supervisor of elections, but said that it should be re-filed to include the secretary of state and the state canvassing board. A hearing is set for next Monday, July 23. A favorable ruling could send shock waves throughout the state just three weeks before the Aug. 14 primary. Far more likely, however, is that the case will drag on and not be settled before this years election. It is something, however, to keep an eye on. There are two schools of though in this matter. One agrees with the fact that if no second party candidates are running, the primary should be open to all. The second says that if one party fields candidates and the second doesnt, thats the fault of the members of the second party, and the voters of the party that fields candidates should not be deprived of voting for choosing their own nominee, even if that nominee is automatically elected. Maybe its time to get rid of, once and for all, the legacy of Katherine Harris. Well just have to wait and see what the court does.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Millage as a taxing entity, unfair to property ownersWell, theyre at it again. The county, whether it be teachers, hospitals or any other group, wants to use millage rates as the method to raise money for any county project. Not fair or realistic. We know Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) wants a one mill increase in real estate taxes, to provide money to help the hospital out of a financial crisis. Then along comes the county school system, with a millage increase proposal for teachers and one for the same amount for school operations. Now, if both MRMC and the school millage proposals pass, which I dont think will happen, it would represent a $200 increase in real estate taxes per $100,000 of property value. Now, this seems like a good idea for those who dont own property in Marion County. Back in 1964, when I first came to the area, there was a millage battle with county commissioners and the populace, regarding funding for schools. Senior citizens felt they should not be paying taxes to educate young parents children, and to their credit, they were right. In a sense. But of course other people, older than themselves, helped fund their childrens education, and In those instances they both had a point. But both groups were boondoggled. To rely solely on property owners for tax money to fund any county or state project is not equitable. Schools, hospitals, roads, parks, etc., are a benefit to the total population, and so should be supported, through funding by the total population. Think of all the communities west of I-75, which are primarily senior citizen communities, as is the Villages and even a great proportion of those in eastern Marion County.

Moose Lodge activities GONE GIRL By Gillian FlynnWhat if a man captures an amazing girl for his wifea beautiful, smart, dazzling creature whos also rich, someone he never dreamed would marry him? And then over the years this same celestial being starts coming unraveled to reveal a strager he doesnt even like. And then she disappears. So what then? Gone Girl begins quietly with newlyweds Amy and Nick Dunne coasting happily from day to day in sunny Manhattan. Out of the blue both lose the jobs they love and Nicks ailing parents need help in his Midwest hometown of Carthage, Missouri. Amy is more than just vaguely distressed by the move on top of losing her job and forking over most of her substantial trust account money to her financially strapped parents. Even so, her disappearance without a trace is unfathomable. Nick reflects on the situation: The police werent going to find Amy unless someone wanted her found. That much was clear. Everything green and brown had been searched: miles of the muddy Mississippi River, all the trails and hiking paths, our sad recollection of patchy woods. If she were dead nature would have to give her up. Despite the circumstances Nick is relatively optimistic and as the investigation goes on he dusts himself off and keeps moving forward unaware that the focus is on him as Amys killer or that his secret affair with a young student has been uncovered. At this juncture in the novel the point of view shifts from Amys diary to Nicks thoughts and memories. And its soon hard to figure out where the real Amy we thought we knew ends and the strange diary Amy begins. And neither Dunne seems disposed to telling the truth. Flynns book has received enormous media hype culminating in actress Reese Witherspoons purchase of the film rights. For once a novel seems to deserve its hype although I quibble with the ending.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, July 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the toilet. It is deposited in a waste basket next to the toilet. This was a new task we had to learn. Paper is at a premium in Cuba and most restaurants had cloth napkins, but one we visited had paper and when we asked for more paper napkins, the waiter came out with one napkin on a plate. Of course, we need more as the meal we were eating was messy. Cuba is a country of great beauty and the worst poverty that I have seen but then I have traveled to only a few third world countries. Despite the poverty, the people seemed happy. The children were clean and playing. We saw children playing baseball with very worn gloves, sticks for bats and large pits for balls. One of the passengers had brought baseballs and when he distributed them to the children, their faces show the greatest joy. If you love old cars, then Cuba is the place to see them. Either the U.S. made cars better 50 years ago or Cuba has the best mechanics. These cars are still running. Cuban cars have different colored license plates to show what type of car cab, rental, state, embassy. Many of the Cuban residents live in what were beautifully built buildings with great columns and great architecture. However, they are crumbling as there is no money for repairs. We visited Cienfuegos, which is called, Cubas Pearl of the South. It is a beautiful city that is restored. It had many wonderful shops and a great theatre and it is located near the water. Here we were treated to a concert by young musicians. Their teacher is Russian and the first violinist was only 13 years old. They are coming to the state of Washington in September to perform. Their performance was amazing and many of us went home with a copy of their CD. Music is very important to the Cuban people and at every meal there was a small group playing for us. After a few days in Havana, we visited Hotel Brisas Trinidad del Mar which was an all inclusive hotel on the beach. The beaches are amazing and unfortunately, we did not have enough time to enjoy them as our days were full with sightseeing. Here we were taught how to Salsa. I can say I did not master the dance but it is a workout just learning. The goal of the tour was to meet the people and learn about the food, culture and music of Cuba. We visited a sugar cane plantation. Many of the sugar cane plantations were shut down after the U.S. pulled out of Cuba. There are only 55 plantations in operation today. We got to taste the liquid from freshly squeezed sugar cane. It is very sweet and one is always treated to a great drink made with their rum. Their rum cannot be brought back to the U.S. along with cigars and Cuban coffee. We visited a cigar factory and one can understand the reason for the expense of cigars as everything is done by hand. You could smoke as many as you wanted but you could not take any out of the country legally. After two nights in Trinidad, we headed back to Havana. We visited Playa Giron which is the site of the historical 1961 clash between the CIA trained Cuban exiles and the rebel forces. Many say this event defined U.S.Cuban relations. We also toured the Bay of Pigs Museum. No visit to Cuba would be complete without visiting the home of the most famous American to live in Cuba Earnest Hemingway. This home was purchased for $18,000 in the late 1930s. One can no longer go into the home but you can look from through the windows to see how Hemingway lived. What I CUBACONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 found interesting is that none of the books or magazines are protected. They sit on shelves or in baskets for you to view. The state was renovating the pool. Hemingways boat is also there. It is a beautiful home at a great location and, while we were there, a bride was having her pictures taken on the lawn. Many of the group went to the Tropicana to see the famed show. We were told that show has continued uninterrupted since the day of the revolution. The costumes and music were amazing. We also visited the International Hotel where many famous Americans had visited and performed. We heard great music and saw dancers. Of course, one is treated to the their famous Majos drinks. Another highlight for some of us was to see a Cuban baseball game. A group of American College All-Star players played one of the Cuban teams. The cost of the ticket for visitors was $3 and we sat right behind home plate. Ball, strikes and outs are called in English but they list strikes, balls, outs on the scoreboard. The U.S. won the opener 4-3 on Michael Confortos grand slam and Jonathan Crawfords 6 1-3 innings of strong pitching. Crawford plays for the University of Florida. It was exciting and there were many Americans there. We met some people that were there for an educational tour and they had entered Cuba via Canada. This is illegal for American and they were surprised that we had come from Miami. For me, the experience was truly humbling. I came home appreciating so much of what I have. We talk about our freedoms of which we have many, but like our guide said, freedom is ones perception. He felt Americans, especially smokers, had little freedom as to where they can smoke. You can smoke most places in Cuba. My roommate, Rita Levy, enjoyed the interaction with parents and students at the band concert we heard. These young students were amazing and they had only studied their respective instruments for less than six months. She felt that the Cuban mothers have the same aspirations as we do for our children. Stone Creek resident Diane Callahan said, The trip was wonderful and the people were generously welcoming. Our itinerary took us to many beautiful and culturally interesting places. Disturbing, however, was the extreme poverty of the Cuban people.Patricia Gizzi is a former Stone Creek correspondent for the West Marion Messenger. A busy street in Cuba.

Vets honored Andre Adams provided a continuous drum roll as the names of veterans who died in the previous three months were read at Veterans Memorial Park. BY PETER J. MUSELLA The Big Sun Chorus of Ocala is taking advantage of the lazy days of summer to gear up for another season of harmony. The Chorus as well as our quartets are practicing new music for the new year. The Big Sun Chorus has been directed quite effectively over the past year by John Shaerer. John took over as an interim director until we were able to get a new and permanent director. Thank you John for doing such a great job. Our chorus is proud to welcome Ron Hesketh as our Music Director. He and his lovely wife Joyce, are a welcome asset to our Chorus. He has been a member of the Barber Shop Society since 1991 and elicits leadership quality as well as enthusiasm and plans to prepare the chorus to enter competition next year. On a sad note, a good friend and barbershopper, Jim Francis passed away in June after a short illness. Members of the Big Sun Chorus were able to say goodbye and were honored to sing at his funeral. With all the hats that Jim wore, he was a vital part of the chorus and a great bass in the Good Vibrations quartet. Now he joins the vast number of deceased members Barbershoppers remember Jim Francis HARMONY CORNER in that Very Large Quartet in heaven. We will miss him.

OF NOTE United Way seeking reading volunteersUnited Way of Marion County is looking to recruit 100 volunteers to be placed in local elementary schools this fall and be paired up with one child to work on literacy skills. The volunteer commitment consists of one hour, once a week for 25 weeks. Training and materials will be provided. This volunteer recruitment effort is in response to a grant that United Way of Marion County received from Carol and Barney Barnett. The grant is focused on engaging, training, and deploying volunteer reading pals in 10 Florida regions to increase the number of students who are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. Working with local school districts, United Ways Womens Leadership Councils, Early Learning Coalitions, Childrens Services Councils and others, this initiative will focus on engaging students from pre-kindergarten to third grade. Local United Ways are tasked with partnering with their local school system, using a common state-wide pre and post assessment, tracking volunteer hours and providing books for children to take home. Implementation of the program is left to the discretion of each community. When schools improve, communities improve and sometimes kids just need someone who believes in them, Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County said. Volunteer training will be offered Thursday, Aug. 2 from 9-11 a.m. at the Marion County Public Library Headquarters located at 2720 E. Silver Springs Blvd, Ocala. Volunteers will be placed when school begins in the fall. Please contact the United Way by calling Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696 ext. 212 or jhathaway@uwmc.org.

Charles Bruce Decker, Jr., 53, of Citra, was southbound on 200 in front of Canopy Oak Plaza. As he approached the entrance about halfway between that Publix shopping center and the Winn Dixie, a Hyundai Azera driven by Kathleen A. Bauer, 90, reportedly turned in front of him and he collided with the right front of the car. Decker, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the Harley Ultra Classic he was driving, struck the windshield of the car and landed in the road. State Road 200 southbound was closed for approximately an hour after the 9:07 a.m. accident. BY JIM CLARK EditorTwo young men were arrested after an attempted robbery at a Corridor Internet caf on Friday the 13th was foiled by a patron who shot at the two suspects. According to reports from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Davis G. Dawkins, 19, of 19556 S.W. 36th St. in Dunnellon, and Duwayne B. Henderson, 19, of 1318 S.W. 33rd St., Ocala, allegedly entered the Palms Internet Caf, 8484 S.W. State Road 200. One carried a baseball bat and struck a computer, while the other brandished a weapon and threatened customers. One of the customers, identified as Samuel Williams, pulled out a gun which he was reportedly legally carrying and shot at the two men, chasing them out the door, then locking the door behind them. Blood was found at the scene indicating that at least one of them had been struck by a bullet. Later the Sheriffs Office received information that two men were being taken from the Marion Oaks area to Shands Hospital with gunshot injuries. A detective interviewed them, and Dawkins said he had been confronted by two subjects at Scott Carrigan Field and forced to assist in the robbery. He also said he had previously worked for the Internet caf. The report states the same information during the arrest of Henderson, who allegedly was the robber with the weapon. Both men were arrested and eventually booked into the Marion County Jail. Dawkins bonded out on $11,000 bond, while Henderson was released on $31,000 bond.

Rare visit Residents of Stone Creek are part of Chamber-sponsored Cuba trip BY PATRICIA GIZZI Special to the CitizenMany of us have enjoyed the beauty and beaches of the Caribbean Islands. Recently, three Stone Creek residents visited a Caribbean Island that not many have the opportunity to visit the island of Cuba. The Ocala Chamber of Commerce sponsored a nine day People to People tour to the island of Cuba. Residents Rita Levy, Diane Callahan and I made the trip to Cuba along with other Ocala residents. The 45-minute flight from Miami on a chartered airline arrived safely and early enough to enjoy an entire day in Havana. The People to People tours were set up by President Obama and approximately 110,000 people have taken advantage of seeing the island. The tours are set by the state and the tour guides are state employees. We spent the first three days in Havana in a former Hilton Hotel. It was considered a four-star hotel by Cuban standards but here in the U.S. it would have been a twostar hotel. There was no air conditioning in the hallways or elevators. The rooms were clean and spacious but air conditioning was a problem, and many had to change their rooms because of air conditioning or shower problems.

MUSELLA The Big Sun Chorus of Ocala is taking advantage of the lazy days of summer to gear up for another season of harmony. The Chorus as well as our quartets are practicing new music for the new year. The Big Sun Chorus has been directed quite effectively over the past year by John Shaerer. John took over as an interim director until we were able to get a new and permanent director. Thank you John for doing such a great job. Our chorus is proud to welcome Ron Hesketh as our Music Director. He and his lovely wife Joyce, are a welcome asset to our Chorus. He has been a member of the Barber Shop Society since 1991 and elicits leadership quality as well as enthusiasm and plans to prepare the chorus to enter competition next year. On a sad note, a good friend and barbershopper, Jim Francis passed away in June after a short illness. Members of the Big Sun Chorus were able to say goodbye and were honored to sing at his funeral. With all the hats that Jim wore, he was a vital part of the chorus and a great bass in the Good Vibrations quartet. Now he joins the vast number of deceased members Barbershoppers remember Jim Francis H ARMONY CORNER in that Very Large Quartet in heaven. We will miss him.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, July 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the toilet. It is deposited in a waste basket next to the toilet. This was a new task we had to learn. Paper is at a premium in Cuba and most restaurants had cloth napkins, but one we visited had paper and when we asked for more paper napkins, the waiter came out with one napkin on a plate. Of course, we need more as the meal we were eating was messy. Cuba is a country of great beauty and the worst poverty that I have seen but then I have traveled to only a few third world countries. Despite the poverty, the people seemed happy. The children were clean and playing. We saw children playing baseball with very worn gloves, sticks for bats and large pits for balls. One of the passengers had brought baseballs and when he distributed them to the children, their faces show the greatest joy. If you love old cars, then Cuba is the place to see them. Either the U.S. made cars better 50 years ago or Cuba has the best mechanics. These cars are still running. Cuban cars have different colored license plates to show what type of car cab, rental, state, embassy. Many of the Cuban residents live in what were beautifully built buildings with great columns and great architecture. However, they are crumbling as there is no money for repairs. We visited Cienfuegos, which is called, Cubas Pearl of the South. It is a beautiful city that is restored. It had many wonderful shops and a great theatre and it is located near the water. Here we were treated to a concert by young musicians. Their teacher is Russian and the first violinist was only 13 years old. They are coming to the state of Washington in September to perform. Their performance was amazing and many of us went home with a copy of their CD. Music is very important to the Cuban people and at every meal there was a small group playing for us. After a few days in Havana, we visited Hotel Brisas Trinidad del Mar which was an all inclusive hotel on the beach. The beaches are amazing and unfortunately, we did not have enough time to enjoy them as our days were full with sightseeing. Here we were taught how to Salsa. I can say I did not master the dance but it is a workout just learning. The goal of the tour was to meet the people and learn about the food, culture and music of Cuba. We visited a sugar cane plantation. Many of the sugar cane plantations were shut down after the U.S. pulled out of Cuba. There are only 55 plantations in operation today. We got to taste the liquid from freshly squeezed sugar cane. It is very sweet and one is always treated to a great drink made with their rum. Their rum cannot be brought back to the U.S. along with cigars and Cuban coffee. We visited a cigar factory and one can understand the reason for the expense of cigars as everything is done by hand. You could smoke as many as you wanted but you could not take any out of the country legally. After two nights in Trinidad, we headed back to Havana. We visited Playa Giron which is the site of the historical 1961 clash between the CIA trained Cuban exiles and the rebel forces. Many say this event defined U.S.Cuban relations. We also toured the Bay of Pigs Museum. No visit to Cuba would be complete without visiting the home of the most famous American to live in Cuba Earnest Hemingway. This home was purchased for $18,000 in the late 1930s. One can no longer go into the home but you can look from through the windows to see how Hemingway lived. What I CUBA CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 found interesting is that none of the books or magazines are protected. They sit on shelves or in baskets for you to view. The state was renovating the pool. Hemingways boat is also there. It is a beautiful home at a great location and, while we were there, a bride was having her pictures taken on the lawn. Many of the group went to the Tropicana to see the famed show. We were told that show has continued uninterrupted since the day of the revolution. The costumes and music were amazing. We also visited the International Hotel where many famous Americans had visited and performed. We heard great music and saw dancers. Of course, one is treated to the their famous Majos drinks. Another highlight for some of us was to see a Cuban baseball game. A group of American College All-Star players played one of the Cuban teams. The cost of the ticket for visitors was $3 and we sat right behind home plate. Ball, strikes and outs are called in English but they list strikes, balls, outs on the scoreboard. The U.S. won the opener 4-3 on Michael Confortos grand slam and Jonathan Crawfords 6 1-3 innings of strong pitching. Crawford plays for the University of Florida. It was exciting and there were many Americans there. We met some people that were there for an educational tour and they had entered Cuba via Canada. This is illegal for American and they were surprised that we had come from Miami. For me, the experience was truly humbling. I came home appreciating so much of what I have. We talk about our freedoms of which we have many, but like our guide said, freedom is ones perception. He felt Americans, especially smokers, had little freedom as to where they can smoke. You can smoke most places in Cuba. My roommate, Rita Levy, enjoyed the interaction with parents and students at the band concert we heard. These young students were amazing and they had only studied their respective instruments for less than six months. She felt that the Cuban mothers have the same aspirations as we do for our children. Stone Creek resident Diane Callahan said, The trip was wonderful and the people were generously welcoming. Our itinerary took us to many beautiful and culturally interesting places. Disturbing, however, was the extreme poverty of the Cuban people. Patricia Gizzi is a former Stone Creek correspondent for the West Marion Messenger. A busy street in Cuba.

I hope Im not prying, but we were wondering why you looked so lonely. Of course Im lonely, he said, Ive spent the past 20 years in prison. Youre kidding! What for? For killing my second wife. I strangled her. What happened to your first wife? I shot her. Oh my, said Sally. Returning to her friend, she said, Esther, hes single.ShortsA Florida State University student accidentally swallowed a frog. A hospital nurse reported that he might croak any minute. Jones is such a thief, said Davis, Im afraid hes going to steal this new golf ball of mine. Sammy replied, I wouldnt putt it past him. In Florida they use alligators to make handbags and shoes. Its amazing what they can train animals to do these days. I have to walk early in the morning before my brain figures out what Im doing. A woman called the Ocala airport and said, I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of those computer planes. The clerk asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane. She said, Yeah, whatever.Real estate After the Florida real estate crash in 1926, a man sued Mizner to recover the purchase price of a barren lot, asserting that Mizner had falsely informed him that be could grow nuts on it. Did you tell the plaintiff that he could grow nuts on this land? Mizner was asked. Oh, no, replied Mizner, I told him he could go nuts on it. The jury decided in Mizners favor.Say it s-l-o-w-l-yA man and his wife, driving their RV across Florida, were nearing Kissimmee. They noted the strange spelling and tried to figure how to pronounce it KISS-ame; kis-A-me; kis-a-ME? They grew more perplexed as they drove into the town. Since they were hungry, they stopped at a fast food restaurant. At the counter, the man said to the clerk, My wife and I cant seem to be able to figure out how to pronounce this place. Will you tell me where we are and say it very slowly so that I can understand? The clerk looked at him and said; Buuurrrgerrr Kiiiinnnng.

Moose Lodge activities GONE GIRL By Gillian Flynn W hat if a man captures an amazing girl for his wifea beautiful, smart, dazzling creature whos also rich, someone he never dreamed would marry him? And then over the years this same celestial being starts coming unraveled to reveal a strager he doesnt even like. And then she disappears. So what then? Gone Girl begins quietly with newlyweds Amy and Nick Dunne coasting happily from day to day in sunny Manhattan. Out of the blue both lose the jobs they love and Nicks ailing parents need help in his Midwest hometown of Carthage, Missouri. Amy is more than just vaguely distressed by the move on top of losing her job and forking over most of her substantial trust account money to her financially strapped parents. Even so, her disappearance without a trace is unfathomable. Nick reflects on the situation: The police werent going to find Amy unless someone wanted her found. That much was clear. Everything green and brown had been searched: miles of the muddy Mississippi River, all the trails and hiking paths, our sad recollection of patchy woods. If she were dead nature would have to give her up. Despite the circumstances Nick is relatively optimistic and as the investigation goes on he dusts himself off and keeps moving forward unaware that the focus is on him as Amys killer or that his secret affair with a young student has been uncovered. At this juncture in the novel the point of view shifts from Amys diary to Nicks thoughts and memories. And its soon hard to figure out where the real Amy we thought we knew ends and the strange diary Amy begins. And neither Dunne seems disposed to telling the truth. Flynns book has received enormous media hype culminating in actress Reese Witherspoons purchase of the film rights. For once a novel seems to deserve its hype although I quibble with the ending. This novel deserves its hype B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Read the classifieds No bingo in Marion Oaks The Marion Oaks Civic Association announces that through Sept. 4, bingo will be closed for scheduled maintenance to the auditorium.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com I n its July-August Bulletin, AARP suggested our national leaders should rediscover the good sense, greatness, and learning of the founding fathers, and discontinue their 21st century explosion of vanity, ideology, and shortsightedness. AARPs wishful thinking is farfetched. There is little likelihood that well wake up one morning to find Congressional leaders Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi emulating the experience and leadership of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. Todays leaders are professional politicians. Former Illinois congressman and senator Everett Dirksen, a 42-year politician himself, described the dedication and commitment of 20th century politicians in a characteristically jocular comment: During a political campaign everyone is concerned with what a candidate will do on this or that question if he is elected except the candidate. Hes busy wondering what hell do if he doesnt get elected. The founding fathers didnt have to wonder. They were volunteer patriots and temporary politicians, men of significant individual accomplishments soldiers, scholars, manufacturers, traders, farmers, businessmen, doctors, lawyers, and statesmen. The founders were educated and well read. Many were homeschooled. They knew world history and were well versed in the contents of the old and new testaments. Mr. Jefferson could read the new testament in Greek, Latin, and French. What the founders had in mind when they were inventing our nation in 1787 was described nicely in British journalist Alistair Cookes America (1973): They were big men where they came from, and sensitive to the powers and privileges they might have to give up in order to create the United States. What are todays leaders willing to give up? The founders and the colonies they represented were already settled in their ideas of what constituted civilized society. Their representatives and public servants were chosen by popular local elections. However, in their discussions about forming a new nation a democracy was not considered. The word had an overtone of disgrace and was thought by some delegates to refer to mob rule. We find it stupefying that many Americans, particularly members of the broadcast media, persist in referring to the U.S. government as our democracy. Washington and Madison in particular considered democracies dangerous, because they breed political parties and demagogues a first step toward dictatorship. George Washington warned the constitutional convention that political parties provoke mischief and conflict. AARP suggests hopefully that todays political leaders get along based on the core principles and liberties which produced a carefully balanced national government 236 years ago. Quoting our second president, John Adams, AARP suggests decency, respect, and veneration can produce compromises even in an atmosphere of gigantic challenges. We dont think so. Amid worldwide financial upsets, our political parties are pulling in opposite directions Democrats toward a European style social democracy and Republicans toward reviving American leadership in multinational commerce. Our major political parties are in a private vs. public tug-of-war. Washington was right mischief and conflict. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 20, 2012 PUBLISHER : GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

T he recent attempted robbery and subsequent shooting of the suspects at an Internet caf raises some questions about security at these establishments that have popped up all over Marion County. The caf, one of several along State Road 200, was entered by two young men, one armed with a gun and the other with a baseball bat, seemingly with the intent of robbery. Unknown to them, one of the patrons was also carrying a weapon, and he came up shooting, chasing both men from the store and locking the door behind them. No one is seeking penalties against the patron, who undoubtedly saved the customers from being robbed and perhaps worse. He reportedly had a concealed weapons permit, and although he was close to the suspects, he apparently didnt shoot to kill, so he did a lot of things right. In fact, the two men got away, only to be apprehended when they called for medical help and deputies were notified. But the fact that a customer was able to walk into a establishment such as this, fully armed, without being checked by anyone is a little disconcerting. In this case, he was the good guy. But what if that werent so? Was there no security to check people for weapons, especially at a business that deals in a lot of cash? Maybe the county and/or state ought to tighten up regulations on these establishments, making sure that they have things in place to protect their customers. In the meantime, when you go into an Internet caf, look around and see if you can find out who has a weapon. If you locate one, just hope that the person packing is on your side, especially if the bad guys come calling. W ord has arrived about another scam that has arrived in the area. Someone claiming to be from Microsoft calls your house and says you have trouble with your computer. She wants you to go to a certain website where she will tell you how to fix the problem. Of course, if you go to that website, youre trapped. Best way to handle this type of call, which can get aggressive if you say no, is to hang up. Dont give in to these scam artists.

BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being with people, and people love being with you. You would probably do very well in politics. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. D emocrats in Marion County cant vote in two County Commission races that will be all but decided in the Republican primary on Aug. 14, this despite a Florida constitutional amendment that was passed 14 years ago. That amendment called for the primary to be open to all if only one party fields candidates for a particular office. However, in an opinion issued back around 2000, then Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (remember her from the Bush election?) ruled that a write-in candidate who would be eligible to be voted on in the general election created an opportunity for the other party, and said that the first primary would be closed. That ruling still stands, and is the reason that the two races featuring incumbents Stan McClain and Mike Amsden are open only to Republicans. There are writein hopefuls in both races, although neither will be on the ballot in November. In many parts of the state its a sham, in which the party of the candidates has someone run as a write-in to make sure the other party cant vote in the primary. No write-in has ever won since this rule went into effect. Down in Miami-Dade, it has now gone to federal court. In the state attorneys race there, two Democrats, one an incumbent, are running, But just before the filing deadline, two write-in candidates filed, meaning that no Miami-Dade Republican can vote for state attorney in the primary. Two voters, one an Independent and the other a Republican, have gone to court. A federal judge threw out their original lawsuit against the supervisor of elections, but said that it should be re-filed to include the secretary of state and the state canvassing board. A hearing is set for next Monday, July 23. A favorable ruling could send shock waves throughout the state just three weeks before the Aug. 14 primary. Far more likely, however, is that the case will drag on and not be settled before this years election. It is something, however, to keep an eye on. There are two schools of though in this matter. One agrees with the fact that if no second party candidates are running, the primary should be open to all. The second says that if one party fields candidates and the second doesnt, thats the fault of the members of the second party, and the voters of the party that fields candidates should not be deprived of voting for choosing their own nominee, even if that nominee is automatically elected. Maybe its time to get rid of, once and for all, the legacy of Katherine Harris. Well just have to wait and see what the court does. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Millage as a taxing entity, unfair to property ownersWell, theyre at it again. The county, whether it be teachers, hospitals or any other group, wants to use millage rates as the method to raise money for any county project. Not fair or realistic. We know Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) wants a one mill increase in real estate taxes, to provide money to help the hospital out of a financial crisis. Then along comes the county school system, with a millage increase proposal for teachers and one for the same amount for school operations. Now, if both MRMC and the school millage proposals pass, which I dont think will happen, it would represent a $200 increase in real estate taxes per $100,000 of property value. Now, this seems like a good idea for those who dont own property in Marion County. Back in 1964, when I first came to the area, there was a millage battle with county commissioners and the populace, regarding funding for schools. Senior citizens felt they should not be paying taxes to educate young parents children, and to their credit, they were right. In a sense. But of course other people, older than themselves, helped fund their childrens education, and In those instances they both had a point. But both groups were boondoggled. To rely solely on property owners for tax money to fund any county or state project is not equitable. Schools, hospitals, roads, parks, etc., are a benefit to the total population, and so should be supported, through funding by the total population. Think of all the communities west of I-75, which are primarily senior citizen communities, as is the Villages and even a great proportion of those in eastern Marion County. It would appear the PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9

What about the rest of the population who will benefit from good old grandma and grandpa again? I dont know why the county commissioners support millage rate increases, rather than across the board small sales tax increases. Even tourists would be supporting our community. In that light, even the tourism commission wants to raise taxes on tourists. Where will it all end? Ive discussed these millage increases with many in my peer group, and not one, whom Ive talked to, is supporting any millage increase. If you will recall, this country was founded on the premise of, taxation without representation. Now we have taxation without full residential responsibility. In a sense the same thing. At least back in the 1700s, we had our own people looking out for us. Not the same prevails now. Ive already sent in my absentee ballot and of course the two school millage proposals were on the ballot. Again, in my opinion, neither the school nor hospital millage increase will pass and that will not help either schools or MRMC. Im certainly hoping, after the upcoming elections., we are represented by a more intelligent and responsible county commission. To lean on property owners and let the rest of the residents of Marion county be freeloaders, is irresponsible management.

Trudy Bliss Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder I t is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs fly. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs fly. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs fly. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can fly. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off Pigs can fly, but certainly not with me when it comes to flying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors flying around, I have more reasons not to like flying. I think the cost of flying his discouraged me from enjoying the flight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extricate myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of flying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I fly just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like flying has to do with the seats. Whoever designed airline seats never had an encounter with a real man. I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly-challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly-challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to fly the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of flying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty PLEASESEEPASTOR PAGE10 In 1513, Ponce de Len, seeking the mythical Fountain of Youth, discovered and named Florida, claiming it for Spain. Last Wednesday 191 years ago Spain ceded Florida to the United States, according to terms of the AdamsOns Treaty. Just think, if Florida still belonged to Spain, most everyone here would be speaking Spanish. The beginning When God was resting on the seventh day after creating the heavens and the earth, He and Archangel Michael were looking upon the earth and noticing the different areas; some were extremely hot and arid while others were very cold and covered in ice. The Archangel, impressed by Gods work, pointed to a large land mass and said, Whats that one? Ah, said God. Thats Florida, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and climate. The people in Florida are going to be modest, extremely sociable, intelligent and humorous. Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, It looks like paradise. But, the only paradise is here in heaven God replied wisely, Wait until you see the people Ill send them from the North every winter.For the birdsA retired biologist ran a small aviary on the Florida Keys, counting on tourists for some income. Most of the time he would lull in his hammock, enjoying the warm tropical breezes and occasionally falling asleep. Every evening he had to lock all the cages so the birds couldnt fly off. One afternoon his siesta lasted too long. When he arrived late he locked up the birdcages; but he forgot about the enclosure that housed the Florida Bay Seagulls. They had all escaped that night, flying away in search of food and freedom, all because he had forgotten to put the locks on the Bay Gulls. The new resident Esther and Sally, two widows in a Florida retirement community, were curious about the latest arrival, a quiet, nice looking gentleman. Esther said, Sally, why dont you go over to him at the pool and find out a little about him.

A special Sunday service was held recently at College Road Baptist Church in which eight members were commissioned for mission trips abroad. Seven of them, in the lightcolored shirts, will go to the Dominican Republic for one week to minister to 800 children with a Vacation Bible School program. From left to right they are Trina Loy (preschool ministry leader), Rachel Loy, Amanda Haddad, Peter Kaminski, Robert Loy, Eugene Harper, and Rev. Rob Loy. In the middle of the group, Katherine Sanz, will go to Mongolia to help distribute the shoeboxes which were filled in the Operation Christmas Shoebox drive last November. 200,000 of these boxes were collected across the nation filled with school supplies, small toys, hygiene items, etc. for children ages 2-14. Katherine was selected as one of 20 young adults from several hundred applicants to visit villages and minister to the local people as well as sharing the excitement of the children as they open their special boxes. Katherine is a student at West Port High school, and lives in Fore Ranch with her parents. They came to the United States from Colombia 12 years ago, and Katherine joined the Youth group at the church where her mother attends the ESL classes. Katherine will graduate from West Port in June, as well as receive her Associate Degree from the College of Central Florida where she has been duallyenrolled and has maintained a 4.7 GPA. people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to fly on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so, I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a wellknown fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a reflection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you fly the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

I n 1954, the American Jewish community celebrated its 300th anniversary. President Dwight Eisenhower was the first president to participate in a national TV program sponsored by a Jewish organization. On this network show, he expressed his satisfaction for his part in bringing the Nazi regime and its atrocities toward the Jews in Europe to a halt. He was glad that the survivors could live in peace and freedom in Israel. The first Catholic president appointed two Jews to his cabinet, Abraham Ribicoff as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare (he grew up in my hometown of New Britain, Connecticut; he became famous; I did not.) and Arthur Goldberg as Secretary of Labor. A national Jewish award for peace sponsored by the Synagogue Council of America was renamed the John F. Kennedy Peace Award after his assassination in 1963. Richard Nixon appointed the first Jewish Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. Nixon is credited with saving Israel from destruction during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 with an airlift of arms. This decision, solidifying American support for the Jewish State, resulted in the Arab Oil Embargo. A mild-mannered peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia, successfully negotiated one of the most famous peace accords between Israel and then most dangerous enemy, Egypt. James Earl Carter was able to bring Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat to the peace table, the first treaty between Israel and an Arab country. The treaty is still in force today. The iconic picture of the signing still is a powerful statement. Unfortunately, as of late, the now former president has been critical of Israeli policies concerning the Palestinians. When George H. W. Bush was Vice President, he played a personal role in Operation Joshua, the program that airlifted 10,000 Jews out of Ethiopia and directly to Israel. This was in 1985. As president, in 1991, he took an important role in Operation Solomon, allowing 14,000 Jews to escape Ethiopia and to resettle in Israel. (When I visited Israel in 1991, I met some of these refugees) However, it was a coup for him when he was able to get the U.N. to rescind its 1975 Zionism is Racism resolution. By the time of the 1990s, the appointment of Jews by presidents to high positions in government was more commonplace. Bill Clinton appointed more Jews to his Cabinet than all other presidents before him, namely Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer to the Supreme Court, both first appointed by President Jimmy Carter. Clinton had 43 Jews in staff positions including Robert Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury, Dan Glickman, Secretary of Agriculture, Stuart Eizenstat, Under Secretary of State and Samuel Berger, National Security Council advisor to Hail to the Chiefs Part 2 J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE11 T he Lets Go To The Hop! dance will take place on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at Palm Grove featuring music by The Dukes.

Royal Oaks Mens GolfThirty five players braved the dreaded curse of Friday the 13th, and played on a much cooler day. A light breeze made it even more pleasant, and the scores reflected the day and the game. The format was a Shambles, in which all drive and then select the best drive. From there each person plays his own ball the rest of the way, with the scoring being the usual three best net. The winner with a 169 (the score was verified by an independent board!) was the team of Ron Catapano, Vince Connolly, Paul Valois, and Jan Flickinger. Second with a 172 were Bruce Stover, Dick Rizzo, Dick Feltenberger, and Mike Madill. A tie for third at 181 were the teams of Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens, John Foutty, and Steve Casner, and Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Bill Start, and Steve Szabo. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Chuck Engel, and Jan Flickinger. Note that Engel missed a hole in one by about 6 inches. Way to go, Chuck! See you all next week.

devastated by the loss of Samuel. They wouldnt take the chance of losing another son in a far off place. While Kens father was an air raid warden and patrolled at night, Ken and his mother would find safety in their Anderson Shelter. These corrugated steel tubes were buried in the back yards of residences and protected people from anything but a direct hit by the bombs. Until 1945 Ken and his mother and father lived a life of depravation and suffering. Ever mindful of the dangers, they still managed to face each day with a curious mixture of courage and humor; two of the qualities that Ken keeps today. After the war Ken joined the Royal Air Force. He was a qualified wireless operator; navigator and a Glider Pilot. In 1954 he was involved with the computerization of the Royal Air Force aircraft readiness status. Computers were just coming into use at that time and he was at the forefront of those efforts. Through his diligence, he was able to keep a running list of aircraft available for service on any given day. As a special reward, Ken served on the Honor Guard for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Ironically, his wife Susanne watched the ceremony on a big screen TV in her Junior High School class in Massachusetts. Graduating from London University with a degree in Industrial Engineering, Ken worked in the blossoming Integrated Circuits field until 1965. At that time he was called to the United States for a job interview. He took a position with Raytheon in Redding, Massachusetts, and in 1971 he became a U.S. citizen. In 1978, friends fixed Susanne and Ken up on a blind date. After that first meeting, Ken called her every night and day. They spent their weekends going to the local clubs that featured Greek line dancing. Susanne says she was swept off her feet and fell for his captivating British accent. Its hard to tell who was swept off their feet when talking with Ken. It seems to have been mutual. Six months later, they were married. A second marriage for both, they shared three children. Ken has a daughter, Julia who lives in New Hampshire and Susanne has a son David who lives Cape Neddick, Maine. Kens son Grahame tragically passed away four years ago from a sudden heart attack. Susanne and Ken have five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren whom they love very much. After their retirement, Kenny was out doing the snow blowing on their property. He came inside and made the executive decision that snow was not one of his favorite things. Susanne laughed at the fact that for 25 years she had shoveled the cold white stuff and after just one month, Ken was ready to call it quits. They decided that Florida would be a much better place to live than Massachusetts so the two of them began checking for retirement sites with the AARP They found Ocala and eventually Cherrywood after researching nine other communities. Ken had three criteria for his new home. He wanted his own home, not a town house or condo; it had to be block construction and it had to have a garage. They found all of that and more in our active community. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club; Past Vice President of the Democratic Club and a Mason. In addition, you will see Susanne and Kenny at several of the functions here at Cherrywood. They have many friends and their love of people and joy for life shows through in all they do. They are truly an asset to our community. From Your ReporterYour opinions count so if you have any ideas or suggestions for items you would like to see in this column please fee free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. name a few. Madeline Albright, Secretary of State, had Jewish parents but was raised as a Christian. William Cohen, who has an obvious Jewish-sounding name, is actually a Unitarian. George W. Bush has the distinction of assembling the largest group of Jewish Neo-Conservatives in history. (Jews tend to vote Democratic and are liberal, in the most part, in their political views). The list included Richard Perle, Chair of the Pentagons Defense policy Board and Deputy defense secretary, Paul Wolfowits along with Under Secretary of Defense Douglas Feith. Dov Zakheim Edward Luttwak Paul Adelman and National Security Advisor, Elliott Abrams. And the presidents spokesman, Ari Fleisher, kept us up to date with presidential announcements. Bushs most important Jewish appointment after 9/11 was Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security and coauthor of the Patriot Act. Bush was also the first president to celebrate Chanukah in the White House. We might say, therefore, that in those years 2001-09, there was a Chanukah Bush as well as a Christmas tree in the White House! Barak Obama is credited with appointing Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, making it the most Jewish in American history with three justices of the Jewish faith on the bench. He has also surrounded himself with Jewish advisors including David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to the President (now his reelection campaign manager) Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff and the Sabbath observant Jack Lew as the new Chief of Staff. Though he has angered the Jewish community at times with his comments on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, in truth he has done much to insure Israels security from the toughest Iran sanctions legislation in history to prevent the build-up of nuclear weapons to diverting funds for innovative defense systems such as Iron Dome, to help shoot down Iranian-backed short range missiles being launched from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. President Obama was the first president to host a Passover seder in the White House residence. It is quite likely that gefilte fish graced the official White House china, a tradition that Obama has held for three years. Whoever is elected in November, be it President Obama or Mitt Romney, it will be interesting to see how history will play out in the appointment of Jews. From George Washingtons famous letter of ensuring religious freedom to Jews to the many presidential appointments especially in recent years, American Jews have been proud to serve their country.

Bunka Shishu: a popular classOften defined as painting with thread, Bunka Shishu is Japanese threedimensional thread art which uses a specialized embroidery needle and rayon thread to create very detailed pictures that look like original oil paintings. Its very addictive, easy to learn and an excellent exercise for anyone with arthritis. It keeps the fingers flexible, said Margaret Nelson, certified Bunka Shishu instructor with over 10 years of experience. Margaret is more than happy to share her passion for this beautiful art with her students and holds weekly classes for residents here in Marion Landing on Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. Completed projects should be framed to protect the thread and keep them clean, said Margaret. Students often give their framed projects as gifts to family and friends; and Margaret has sold some of her pictures to local businesses and individuals, but takes pride in noting that she has donated many of them to local churches and organizations for their fundraisers. If youd like to learn more about Bunka Shishu, stop by the Lifestyle Center, talk to Margaret and her students, and see some of the beautiful projects they are working on.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident with an interesting past; a promising future or someone who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we spotlight Kenneth Beech. If you have ever spoken with Ken you can from his distinctive accent that he was born in Great Britain; Bromborough Pool in the county of Cheshire to be exact. The town was just a short distance from Liverpool England, a major seaport. This fact played an important part in his childhood and young adult life. When Ken was only 5 years old, World War II broke out between England and the Axis powers. Because England is an island nation, all of its supplies for both domestic use and for the war effort had to be shipped into the country. This made the port of Liverpool a major target for German bombers. Shortly after the war began in September of 1939, the bombs began to fall. As Kenny described the frequent air raids that he endured, he smiled nervously and said, The Germans would bomb the harbor and anything they had left over, they dropped on us. Another incident happened at that time that had a profound effect on Ken. Many of the workers at the wharfs were Asians. One day, while riding a bus, a group of these workers were being heckled by some of the residents of Bromborough. When they were threatened with violence, Kennys Dad stood up. Ken describes his father as a big man, over six feet tall and muscular in build. When he rose from his seat he made it clear that anyone who was going to hurt the workers would have to go through him first. These men are here working to keep you alive, he remembered his father saying. That was Kens first experience with racial prejudice and the lesson of his father has stayed with him through out his life. Fearing for their childrens life, Kennys parents shipped him and his brother Samuel, off to Wales along with many other local youngsters. This happened all over England during the war years as parents sought to protect their young ones. Wales was a safer place than England as far as air raids went but it was not safe from all dangers. Samuel, Kens brother, was struck with diphtheria and two weeks later passed away. Ken was immediately summoned home by his parents who were Susanne and Ken Beech.

Memorial Committee formedRuth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling have formed a Memorial Committee to assist Veterans Club families who have lost a loved one and who want to use the clubhouse for Memorial Service receptions. When a family is holding a reception following a funeral there is a need for helping hands to coordinate all aspects of that function; from set up to clean up. The Veterans Club honors each deceased member by putting their name on the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. The Memorial Committee will ensure that this is accomplished and that proper respect is shown to our passing service men and women. This committee will be of great value to grieving families providing the support and help that they so richly deserve. Because Cherrywood has a reputation for First Welcoming Committee Coffee greets new residents caring, and taking care of our own, we encourage our residents to participate in this endeavor. You can contact Ruth; Eve or tell Geri in the office if you wish to serve on this very worthwhile committee. Members of the Veterans Club are especially welcome.

Eve Houghtaling briefed the group about the various social opportunities available to everyone; Gen Downs spoke about the exercise classes; Ruth Hurley spoke on Veterans Club opportunities and Rich Becotte enlightened everyone about the friendly atmosphere and ease of living in Cherrywood. We hope that the attendees felt welcome and got some useful information from the packet that was handed out concerning the services of Marion County and the many chances to socialize in this community. Another coffee hour is planned in October and we look forward to bringing more people into our Cherrywood family.Golfers WantedDid you know that Cherrywood has an opportunity for residents who are into golf? Neither did I until this week. The club is called SW200 Club and is made up Cherrywood and other over 55 communities in the area. Rich Hurely is the driving force behind this group so dont putter around; strike while the iron is hot and give him a call at 352-871-7208 or contact club secretray Marko Popin at dynamite@lightingspeed.net The SW200 Golf Club; youll have a ball! Memorial Committee formedRuth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling have formed a Memorial Committee to assist Veterans Club families who have lost a loved one and who want to use the clubhouse for Memorial Service receptions. When a family is holding a reception following a funeral there is a need for helping hands to coordinate all aspects of that function; from set up to clean up. The Veterans Club honors each deceased member by putting their name on the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. The Memorial Committee will ensure that this is accomplished and that proper respect is shown to our passing service men and women. This committee will be of great value to grieving families providing the support and help that they so richly deserve. Because Cherrywood has a reputation for First Welcoming Committee Coffee greets new residents caring, and taking care of our own, we encourage our residents to participate in this endeavor. You can contact Ruth; Eve or tell Geri in the office if you wish to serve on this very worthwhile committee. Members of the Veterans Club are especially welcome. Tai Chi and Water Aerobics On July 20, there will be no Stretch/Yoga or Water Aerobics because Deb will be at a Tai-Chi Workshop. She will make up the Water Aerobics class on July 31 at 11:30 a.m. On July 23, the same day as our Summer Fest, there will be no Tai Chi or Water Aerobics Classes.

Bunka Shishu: a popular classOften defined as painting with thread, Bunka Shishu is Japanese threedimensional thread art which uses a specialized embroidery needle and rayon thread to create very detailed pictures that look like original oil paintings. Its very addictive, easy to learn and an excellent exercise for anyone with arthritis. It keeps the fingers flexible, said Margaret Nelson, certified Bunka Shishu instructor with over 10 years of experience. Margaret is more than happy to share her passion for this beautiful art with her students and holds weekly classes for residents here in Marion Landing on Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. Completed projects should be framed to protect the thread and keep them clean, said Margaret. Students often give their framed projects as gifts to family and friends; and Margaret has sold some of her pictures to local businesses and individuals, but takes pride in noting that she has donated many of them to local churches and organizations for their fundraisers. If youd like to learn more about Bunka Shishu, stop by the Lifestyle Center, talk to Margaret and her students, and see some of the beautiful projects they are working on.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident with an interesting past; a promising future or someone who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we spotlight Kenneth Beech. If you have ever spoken with Ken you can from his distinctive accent that he was born in Great Britain; Bromborough Pool in the county of Cheshire to be exact. The town was just a short distance from Liverpool England, a major seaport. This fact played an important part in his childhood and young adult life. When Ken was only 5 years old, World War II broke out between England and the Axis powers. Because England is an island nation, all of its supplies for both domestic use and for the war effort had to be shipped into the country. This made the port of Liverpool a major target for German bombers. Shortly after the war began in September of 1939, the bombs began to fall. As Kenny described the frequent air raids that he endured, he smiled nervously and said, The Germans would bomb the harbor and anything they had left over, they dropped on us. Another incident happened at that time that had a profound effect on Ken. Many of the workers at the wharfs were Asians. One day, while riding a bus, a group of these workers were being heckled by some of the residents of Bromborough. When they were threatened with violence, Kennys Dad stood up. Ken describes his father as a big man, over six feet tall and muscular in build. When he rose from his seat he made it clear that anyone who was going to hurt the workers would have to go through him first. These men are here working to keep you alive, he remembered his father saying. That was Kens first experience with racial prejudice and the lesson of his father has stayed with him through out his life. Fearing for their childrens life, Kennys parents shipped him and his brother Samuel, off to Wales along with many other local youngsters. This happened all over England during the war years as parents sought to protect their young ones. Wales was a safer place than England as far as air raids went but it was not safe from all dangers. Samuel, Kens brother, was struck with diphtheria and two weeks later passed away. Ken was immediately summoned home by his parents who were Susanne and Ken Beech.

devastated by the loss of Samuel. They wouldnt take the chance of losing another son in a far off place. While Kens father was an air raid warden and patrolled at night, Ken and his mother would find safety in their Anderson Shelter. These corrugated steel tubes were buried in the back yards of residences and protected people from anything but a direct hit by the bombs. Until 1945 Ken and his mother and father lived a life of depravation and suffering. Ever mindful of the dangers, they still managed to face each day with a curious mixture of courage and humor; two of the qualities that Ken keeps today. After the war Ken joined the Royal Air Force. He was a qualified wireless operator; navigator and a Glider Pilot. In 1954 he was involved with the computerization of the Royal Air Force aircraft readiness status. Computers were just coming into use at that time and he was at the forefront of those efforts. Through his diligence, he was able to keep a running list of aircraft available for service on any given day. As a special reward, Ken served on the Honor Guard for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Ironically, his wife Susanne watched the ceremony on a big screen TV in her Junior High School class in Massachusetts. Graduating from London University with a degree in Industrial Engineering, Ken worked in the blossoming Integrated Circuits field until 1965. At that time he was called to the United States for a job interview. He took a position with Raytheon in Redding, Massachusetts, and in 1971 he became a U.S. citizen. In 1978, friends fixed Susanne and Ken up on a blind date. After that first meeting, Ken called her every night and day. They spent their weekends going to the local clubs that featured Greek line dancing. Susanne says she was swept off her feet and fell for his captivating British accent. Its hard to tell who was swept off their feet when talking with Ken. It seems to have been mutual. Six months later, they were married. A second marriage for both, they shared three children. Ken has a daughter, Julia who lives in New Hampshire and Susanne has a son David who lives Cape Neddick, Maine. Kens son Grahame tragically passed away four years ago from a sudden heart attack. Susanne and Ken have five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren whom they love very much. After their retirement, Kenny was out doing the snow blowing on their property. He came inside and made the executive decision that snow was not one of his favorite things. Susanne laughed at the fact that for 25 years she had shoveled the cold white stuff and after just one month, Ken was ready to call it quits. They decided that Florida would be a much better place to live than Massachusetts so the two of them began checking for retirement sites with the AARP They found Ocala and eventually Cherrywood after researching nine other communities. Ken had three criteria for his new home. He wanted his own home, not a town house or condo; it had to be block construction and it had to have a garage. They found all of that and more in our active community. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club; Past Vice President of the Democratic Club and a Mason. In addition, you will see Susanne and Kenny at several of the functions here at Cherrywood. They have many friends and their love of people and joy for life shows through in all they do. They are truly an asset to our community.

Madeline Albright, Secretary of State, had Jewish parents but was raised as a Christian. William Cohen, who has an obvious Jewish-sounding name, is actually a Unitarian. George W. Bush has the distinction of assembling the largest group of Jewish Neo-Conservatives in history. (Jews tend to vote Democratic and are liberal, in the most part, in their political views). The list included Richard Perle, Chair of the Pentagons Defense policy Board and Deputy defense secretary, Paul Wolfowits along with Under Secretary of Defense Douglas Feith. Dov Zakheim Edward Luttwak Paul Adelman and National Security Advisor, Elliott Abrams. And the presidents spokesman, Ari Fleisher, kept us up to date with presidential announcements. Bushs most important Jewish appointment after 9/11 was Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security and coauthor of the Patriot Act. Bush was also the first president to celebrate Chanukah in the White House. We might say, therefore, that in those years 2001-09, there was a Chanukah Bush as well as a Christmas tree in the White House! Barak Obama is credited with appointing Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, making it the most Jewish in American history with three justices of the Jewish faith on the bench. He has also surrounded himself with Jewish advisors including David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to the President (now his reelection campaign manager) Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff and the Sabbath observant Jack Lew as the new Chief of Staff. Though he has angered the Jewish community at times with his comments on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, in truth he has done much to insure Israels security from the toughest Iran sanctions legislation in history to prevent the build-up of nuclear weapons to diverting funds for innovative defense systems such as Iron Dome, to help shoot down Iranian-backed short range missiles being launched from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. President Obama was the first president to host a Passover seder in the White House residence. It is quite likely that gefilte fish graced the official White House china, a tradition that Obama has held for three years. Whoever is elected in November, be it President Obama or Mitt Romney, it will be interesting to see how history will play out in the appointment of Jews. From George Washingtons famous letter of ensuring religious freedom to Jews to the many presidential appointments especially in recent years, American Jews have been proud to serve their country.

A special Sunday service was held recently at College Road Baptist Church in which eight members were commissioned for mission trips abroad. Seven of them, in the lightcolored shirts, will go to the Dominican Republic for one week to minister to 800 children with a Vacation Bible School program. From left to right they are Trina Loy (preschool ministry leader), Rachel Loy, Amanda Haddad, Peter Kaminski, Robert Loy, Eugene Harper, and Rev. Rob Loy. In the middle of the group, Katherine Sanz, will go to Mongolia to help distribute the shoeboxes which were filled in the Operation Christmas Shoebox drive last November. 200,000 of these boxes were collected across the nation filled with school supplies, small toys, hygiene items, etc. for children ages 2-14. Katherine was selected as one of 20 young adults from several hundred applicants to visit villages and minister to the local people as well as sharing the excitement of the children as they open their special boxes. Katherine is a student at West Port High school, and lives in Fore Ranch with her parents. They came to the United States from Colombia 12 years ago, and Katherine joined the Youth group at the church where her mother attends the ESL classes. Katherine will graduate from West Port in June, as well as receive her Associate Degree from the College of Central Florida where she has been duallyenrolled and has maintained a 4.7 GPA. people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to fly on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so, I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a wellknown fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a reflection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you fly the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

I n 1954, the American Jewish community celebrated its 300th anniversary. President Dwight Eisenhower was the first president to participate in a national TV program sponsored by a Jewish organization. On this network show, he expressed his satisfaction for his part in bringing the Nazi regime and its atrocities toward the Jews in Europe to a halt. He was glad that the survivors could live in peace and freedom in Israel. The first Catholic president appointed two Jews to his cabinet, Abraham Ribicoff as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare (he grew up in my hometown of New Britain, Connecticut; he became famous; I did not.) and Arthur Goldberg as Secretary of Labor. A national Jewish award for peace sponsored by the Synagogue Council of America was renamed the John F. Kennedy Peace Award after his assassination in 1963. Richard Nixon appointed the first Jewish Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. Nixon is credited with saving Israel from destruction during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 with an airlift of arms. This decision, solidifying American support for the Jewish State, resulted in the Arab Oil Embargo. A mild-mannered peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia, successfully negotiated one of the most famous peace accords between Israel and then most dangerous enemy, Egypt. James Earl Carter was able to bring Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat to the peace table, the first treaty between Israel and an Arab country. The treaty is still in force today. The iconic picture of the signing still is a powerful statement. Unfortunately, as of late, the now former president has been critical of Israeli policies concerning the Palestinians. When George H. W. Bush was Vice President, he played a personal role in Operation Joshua, the program that airlifted 10,000 Jews out of Ethiopia and directly to Israel. This was in 1985. As president, in 1991, he took an important role in Operation Solomon, allowing 14,000 Jews to escape Ethiopia and to resettle in Israel. (When I visited Israel in 1991, I met some of these refugees) However, it was a coup for him when he was able to get the U.N. to rescind its 1975 Zionism is Racism resolution. By the time of the 1990s, the appointment of Jews by presidents to high positions in government was more commonplace. Bill Clinton appointed more Jews to his Cabinet than all other presidents before him, namely Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer to the Supreme Court, both first appointed by President Jimmy Carter. Clinton had 43 Jews in staff positions including Robert Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury, Dan Glickman, Secretary of Agriculture, Stuart Eizenstat, Under Secretary of State and Samuel Berger, National Security Council advisor to Hail to the Chiefs Part 2 J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE11 T he Lets Go To The Hop! dance will take place on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at Palm Grove featuring music by The Dukes.

From there each person plays his own ball the rest of the way, with the scoring being the usual three best net. The winner with a 169 (the score was verified by an independent board!) was the team of Ron Catapano, Vince Connolly, Paul Valois, and Jan Flickinger. Second with a 172 were Bruce Stover, Dick Rizzo, Dick Feltenberger, and Mike Madill. A tie for third at 181 were the teams of Dick Blackburn, Sam Owens, John Foutty, and Steve Casner, and Charlie Elder, Gene Topp, Bill Start, and Steve Szabo. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Chuck Engel, and Jan Flickinger. Note that Engel missed a hole in one by about 6 inches. Way to go, Chuck! See you all next week. Enjoy the golf on the green and lush course.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, July 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com older population is asked again, to support the rest of the county through a millage increase. Not fair! What about the rest of the population who will benefit from good old grandma and grandpa again? I dont know why the county commissioners support millage rate increases, rather than across the board small sales tax increases. Even tourists would be supporting our community. In that light, even the tourism commission wants to raise taxes on tourists. Where will it all end? Ive discussed these millage increases with many in my peer group, and not one, whom Ive talked to, is supporting any millage increase. If you will recall, this country was founded on the premise of, taxation without representation. Now we have taxation without full residential responsibility. In a sense the same thing. At least back in the 1700s, we had our own people looking out for us. Not the same prevails now. Ive already sent in my absentee ballot and of course the two school millage proposals were on the ballot. Again, in my opinion, neither the school nor hospital millage increase will pass and that will not help either schools or MRMC. Im certainly hoping, after the upcoming elections., we are represented by a more intelligent and responsible county commission. To lean on property owners and let the rest of the residents of Marion county be freeloaders, is irresponsible management.

Trudy Bliss Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder I t is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs fly. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs fly. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs fly. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can fly. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off Pigs can fly, but certainly not with me when it comes to flying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors flying around, I have more reasons not to like flying. I think the cost of flying his discouraged me from enjoying the flight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extricate myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of flying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I fly just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like flying has to do with the seats. Whoever designed airline seats never had an encounter with a real man. I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly-challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly-challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to fly the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of flying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty PLEASESEEPASTOR PAGE10 In 1513, Ponce de Len, seeking the mythical Fountain of Youth, discovered and named Florida, claiming it for Spain. Last Wednesday 191 years ago Spain ceded Florida to the United States, according to terms of the AdamsOns Treaty. Just think, if Florida still belonged to Spain, most everyone here would be speaking Spanish. The beginning When God was resting on the seventh day after creating the heavens and the earth, He and Archangel Michael were looking upon the earth and noticing the different areas; some were extremely hot and arid while others were very cold and covered in ice. The Archangel, impressed by Gods work, pointed to a large land mass and said, Whats that one? Ah, said God. Thats Florida, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and climate. The people in Florida are going to be modest, extremely sociable, intelligent and humorous. Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, It looks like paradise. But, the only paradise is here in heaven God replied wisely, Wait until you see the people Ill send them from the North every winter.For the birdsA retired biologist ran a small aviary on the Florida Keys, counting on tourists for some income. Most of the time he would lull in his hammock, enjoying the warm tropical breezes and occasionally falling asleep. Every evening he had to lock all the cages so the birds couldnt fly off. One afternoon his siesta lasted too long. When he arrived late he locked up the birdcages; but he forgot about the enclosure that housed the Florida Bay Seagulls. They had all escaped that night, flying away in search of food and freedom, all because he had forgotten to put the locks on the Bay Gulls. The new resident Esther and Sally, two widows in a Florida retirement community, were curious about the latest arrival, a quiet, nice looking gentleman. Esther said, Sally, why dont you go over to him at the pool and find out a little about him.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com I n its July-August Bulletin, AARP suggested our national leaders should rediscover the good sense, greatness, and learning of the founding fathers, and discontinue their 21st century explosion of vanity, ideology, and shortsightedness. AARPs wishful thinking is farfetched. There is little likelihood that well wake up one morning to find Congressional leaders Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi emulating the experience and leadership of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. Todays leaders are professional politicians. Former Illinois congressman and senator Everett Dirksen, a 42-year politician himself, described the dedication and commitment of 20th century politicians in a characteristically jocular comment: During a political campaign everyone is concerned with what a candidate will do on this or that question if he is elected except the candidate. Hes busy wondering what hell do if he doesnt get elected. The founding fathers didnt have to wonder. They were volunteer patriots and temporary politicians, men of significant individual accomplishments soldiers, scholars, manufacturers, traders, farmers, businessmen, doctors, lawyers, and statesmen. The founders were educated and well read. Many were homeschooled. They knew world history and were well versed in the contents of the old and new testaments. Mr. Jefferson could read the new testament in Greek, Latin, and French. What the founders had in mind when they were inventing our nation in 1787 was described nicely in British journalist Alistair Cookes America (1973): They were big men where they came from, and sensitive to the powers and privileges they might have to give up in order to create the United States. What are todays leaders willing to give up? The founders and the colonies they represented were already settled in their ideas of what constituted civilized society. Their representatives and public servants were chosen by popular local elections. However, in their discussions about forming a new nation a democracy was not considered. The word had an overtone of disgrace and was thought by some delegates to refer to mob rule. We find it stupefying that many Americans, particularly members of the broadcast media, persist in referring to the U.S. government as our democracy. Washington and Madison in particular considered democracies dangerous, because they breed political parties and demagogues a first step toward dictatorship. George Washington warned the constitutional convention that political parties provoke mischief and conflict. AARP suggests hopefully that todays political leaders get along based on the core principles and liberties which produced a carefully balanced national government 236 years ago. Quoting our second president, John Adams, AARP suggests decency, respect, and veneration can produce compromises even in an atmosphere of gigantic challenges. We dont think so. Amid worldwide financial upsets, our political parties are pulling in opposite directions Democrats toward a European style social democracy and Republicans toward reviving American leadership in multinational commerce. Our major political parties are in a private vs. public tug-of-war. Washington was right mischief and conflict. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 20, 2012 PUBLISHER : GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

T he recent attempted robbery and subsequent shooting of the suspects at an Internet caf raises some questions about security at these establishments that have popped up all over Marion County. The caf, one of several along State Road 200, was entered by two young men, one armed with a gun and the other with a baseball bat, seemingly with the intent of robbery. Unknown to them, one of the patrons was also carrying a weapon, and he came up shooting, chasing both men from the store and locking the door behind them. No one is seeking penalties against the patron, who undoubtedly saved the customers from being robbed and perhaps worse. He reportedly had a concealed weapons permit, and although he was close to the suspects, he apparently didnt shoot to kill, so he did a lot of things right. In fact, the two men got away, only to be apprehended when they called for medical help and deputies were notified. But the fact that a customer was able to walk into a establishment such as this, fully armed, without being checked by anyone is a little disconcerting. In this case, he was the good guy. But what if that werent so? Was there no security to check people for weapons, especially at a business that deals in a lot of cash? Maybe the county and/or state ought to tighten up regulations on these establishments, making sure that they have things in place to protect their customers. In the meantime, when you go into an Internet caf, look around and see if you can find out who has a weapon. If you locate one, just hope that the person packing is on your side, especially if the bad guys come calling. W ord has arrived about another scam that has arrived in the area. Someone claiming to be from Microsoft calls your house and says you have trouble with your computer. She wants you to go to a certain website where she will tell you how to fix the problem. Of course, if you go to that website, youre trapped. Best way to handle this type of call, which can get aggressive if you say no, is to hang up. Dont give in to these scam artists.

BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being with people, and people love being with you. You would probably do very well in politics. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. D emocrats in Marion County cant vote in two County Commission races that will be all but decided in the Republican primary on Aug. 14, this despite a Florida constitutional amendment that was passed 14 years ago. That amendment called for the primary to be open to all if only one party fields candidates for a particular office. However, in an opinion issued back around 2000, then Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (remember her from the Bush election?) ruled that a write-in candidate who would be eligible to be voted on in the general election created an opportunity for the other party, and said that the first primary would be closed. That ruling still stands, and is the reason that the two races featuring incumbents Stan McClain and Mike Amsden are open only to Republicans. There are writein hopefuls in both races, although neither will be on the ballot in November. In many parts of the state its a sham, in which the party of the candidates has someone run as a write-in to make sure the other party cant vote in the primary. No write-in has ever won since this rule went into effect. Down in Miami-Dade, it has now gone to federal court. In the state attorneys race there, two Democrats, one an incumbent, are running, But just before the filing deadline, two write-in candidates filed, meaning that no Miami-Dade Republican can vote for state attorney in the primary. Two voters, one an Independent and the other a Republican, have gone to court. A federal judge threw out their original lawsuit against the supervisor of elections, but said that it should be re-filed to include the secretary of state and the state canvassing board. A hearing is set for next Monday, July 23. A favorable ruling could send shock waves throughout the state just three weeks before the Aug. 14 primary. Far more likely, however, is that the case will drag on and not be settled before this years election. It is something, however, to keep an eye on. There are two schools of though in this matter. One agrees with the fact that if no second party candidates are running, the primary should be open to all. The second says that if one party fields candidates and the second doesnt, thats the fault of the members of the second party, and the voters of the party that fields candidates should not be deprived of voting for choosing their own nominee, even if that nominee is automatically elected. Maybe its time to get rid of, once and for all, the legacy of Katherine Harris. Well just have to wait and see what the court does. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Millage as a taxing entity, unfair to property ownersWell, theyre at it again. The county, whether it be teachers, hospitals or any other group, wants to use millage rates as the method to raise money for any county project. Not fair or realistic. We know Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) wants a one mill increase in real estate taxes, to provide money to help the hospital out of a financial crisis. Then along comes the county school system, with a millage increase proposal for teachers and one for the same amount for school operations. Now, if both MRMC and the school millage proposals pass, which I dont think will happen, it would represent a $200 increase in real estate taxes per $100,000 of property value. Now, this seems like a good idea for those who dont own property in Marion County. Back in 1964, when I first came to the area, there was a millage battle with county commissioners and the populace, regarding funding for schools. Senior citizens felt they should not be paying taxes to educate young parents children, and to their credit, they were right. In a sense. But of course other people, older than themselves, helped fund their childrens education, and In those instances they both had a point. But both groups were boondoggled. To rely solely on property owners for tax money to fund any county or state project is not equitable. Schools, hospitals, roads, parks, etc., are a benefit to the total population, and so should be supported, through funding by the total population. Think of all the communities west of I-75, which are primarily senior citizen communities, as is the Villages and even a great proportion of those in eastern Marion County.

Moose Lodge activities GONE GIRL By Gillian Flynn W hat if a man captures an amazing girl for his wifea beautiful, smart, dazzling creature whos also rich, someone he never dreamed would marry him? And then over the years this same celestial being starts coming unraveled to reveal a strager he doesnt even like. And then she disappears. So what then? Gone Girl begins quietly with newlyweds Amy and Nick Dunne coasting happily from day to day in sunny Manhattan. Out of the blue both lose the jobs they love and Nicks ailing parents need help in his Midwest hometown of Carthage, Missouri. Amy is more than just vaguely distressed by the move on top of losing her job and forking over most of her substantial trust account money to her financially strapped parents. Even so, her disappearance without a trace is unfathomable. Nick reflects on the situation: The police werent going to find Amy unless someone wanted her found. That much was clear. Everything green and brown had been searched: miles of the muddy Mississippi River, all the trails and hiking paths, our sad recollection of patchy woods. If she were dead nature would have to give her up. Despite the circumstances Nick is relatively optimistic and as the investigation goes on he dusts himself off and keeps moving forward unaware that the focus is on him as Amys killer or that his secret affair with a young student has been uncovered. At this juncture in the novel the point of view shifts from Amys diary to Nicks thoughts and memories. And its soon hard to figure out where the real Amy we thought we knew ends and the strange diary Amy begins. And neither Dunne seems disposed to telling the truth. Flynns book has received enormous media hype culminating in actress Reese Witherspoons purchase of the film rights. For once a novel seems to deserve its hype although I quibble with the ending.

Friday, July 20, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4 ~ Friday, July 20, 2012 www.smcitizen.com the toilet. It is deposited in a waste basket next to the toilet. This was a new task we had to learn. Paper is at a premium in Cuba and most restaurants had cloth napkins, but one we visited had paper and when we asked for more paper napkins, the waiter came out with one napkin on a plate. Of course, we need more as the meal we were eating was messy. Cuba is a country of great beauty and the worst poverty that I have seen but then I have traveled to only a few third world countries. Despite the poverty, the people seemed happy. The children were clean and playing. We saw children playing baseball with very worn gloves, sticks for bats and large pits for balls. One of the passengers had brought baseballs and when he distributed them to the children, their faces show the greatest joy. If you love old cars, then Cuba is the place to see them. Either the U.S. made cars better 50 years ago or Cuba has the best mechanics. These cars are still running. Cuban cars have different colored license plates to show what type of car cab, rental, state, embassy. Many of the Cuban residents live in what were beautifully built buildings with great columns and great architecture. However, they are crumbling as there is no money for repairs. We visited Cienfuegos, which is called, Cubas Pearl of the South. It is a beautiful city that is restored. It had many wonderful shops and a great theatre and it is located near the water. Here we were treated to a concert by young musicians. Their teacher is Russian and the first violinist was only 13 years old. They are coming to the state of Washington in September to perform. Their performance was amazing and many of us went home with a copy of their CD. Music is very important to the Cuban people and at every meal there was a small group playing for us. After a few days in Havana, we visited Hotel Brisas Trinidad del Mar which was an all inclusive hotel on the beach. The beaches are amazing and unfortunately, we did not have enough time to enjoy them as our days were full with sightseeing. Here we were taught how to Salsa. I can say I did not master the dance but it is a workout just learning. The goal of the tour was to meet the people and learn about the food, culture and music of Cuba. We visited a sugar cane plantation. Many of the sugar cane plantations were shut down after the U.S. pulled out of Cuba. There are only 55 plantations in operation today. We got to taste the liquid from freshly squeezed sugar cane. It is very sweet and one is always treated to a great drink made with their rum. Their rum cannot be brought back to the U.S. along with cigars and Cuban coffee. We visited a cigar factory and one can understand the reason for the expense of cigars as everything is done by hand. You could smoke as many as you wanted but you could not take any out of the country legally. After two nights in Trinidad, we headed back to Havana. We visited Playa Giron which is the site of the historical 1961 clash between the CIA trained Cuban exiles and the rebel forces. Many say this event defined U.S.Cuban relations. We also toured the Bay of Pigs Museum. No visit to Cuba would be complete without visiting the home of the most famous American to live in Cuba Earnest Hemingway. This home was purchased for $18,000 in the late 1930s. One can no longer go into the home but you can look from through the windows to see how Hemingway lived. What I CUBA CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 found interesting is that none of the books or magazines are protected. They sit on shelves or in baskets for you to view. The state was renovating the pool. Hemingways boat is also there. It is a beautiful home at a great location and, while we were there, a bride was having her pictures taken on the lawn. Many of the group went to the Tropicana to see the famed show. We were told that show has continued uninterrupted since the day of the revolution. The costumes and music were amazing. We also visited the International Hotel where many famous Americans had visited and performed. We heard great music and saw dancers. Of course, one is treated to the their famous Majos drinks. Another highlight for some of us was to see a Cuban baseball game. A group of American College All-Star players played one of the Cuban teams. The cost of the ticket for visitors was $3 and we sat right behind home plate. Ball, strikes and outs are called in English but they list strikes, balls, outs on the scoreboard. The U.S. won the opener 4-3 on Michael Confortos grand slam and Jonathan Crawfords 6 1-3 innings of strong pitching. Crawford plays for the University of Florida. It was exciting and there were many Americans there. We met some people that were there for an educational tour and they had entered Cuba via Canada. This is illegal for American and they were surprised that we had come from Miami. For me, the experience was truly humbling. I came home appreciating so much of what I have. We talk about our freedoms of which we have many, but like our guide said, freedom is ones perception. He felt Americans, especially smokers, had little freedom as to where they can smoke. You can smoke most places in Cuba. My roommate, Rita Levy, enjoyed the interaction with parents and students at the band concert we heard. These young students were amazing and they had only studied their respective instruments for less than six months. She felt that the Cuban mothers have the same aspirations as we do for our children. Stone Creek resident Diane Callahan said, The trip was wonderful and the people were generously welcoming. Our itinerary took us to many beautiful and culturally interesting places. Disturbing, however, was the extreme poverty of the Cuban people. Patricia Gizzi is a former Stone Creek correspondent for the West Marion Messenger. A busy street in Cuba.

Vets honored Andre Adams provided a continuous drum roll as the names of veterans who died in the previous three months were read at Veterans Memorial Park. BY PETER J. MUSELLA The Big Sun Chorus of Ocala is taking advantage of the lazy days of summer to gear up for another season of harmony. The Chorus as well as our quartets are practicing new music for the new year. The Big Sun Chorus has been directed quite effectively over the past year by John Shaerer. John took over as an interim director until we were able to get a new and permanent director. Thank you John for doing such a great job. Our chorus is proud to welcome Ron Hesketh as our Music Director. He and his lovely wife Joyce, are a welcome asset to our Chorus. He has been a member of the Barber Shop Society since 1991 and elicits leadership quality as well as enthusiasm and plans to prepare the chorus to enter competition next year. On a sad note, a good friend and barbershopper, Jim Francis passed away in June after a short illness. Members of the Big Sun Chorus were able to say goodbye and were honored to sing at his funeral. With all the hats that Jim wore, he was a vital part of the chorus and a great bass in the Good Vibrations quartet. Now he joins the vast number of deceased members Barbershoppers remember Jim Francis H ARMONY CORNER in that Very Large Quartet in heaven. We will miss him.

OF NOTE United Way seeking reading volunteersUnited Way of Marion County is looking to recruit 100 volunteers to be placed in local elementary schools this fall and be paired up with one child to work on literacy skills. The volunteer commitment consists of one hour, once a week for 25 weeks. Training and materials will be provided. This volunteer recruitment effort is in response to a grant that United Way of Marion County received from Carol and Barney Barnett. The grant is focused on engaging, training, and deploying volunteer reading pals in 10 Florida regions to increase the number of students who are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. Working with local school districts, United Ways Womens Leadership Councils, Early Learning Coalitions, Childrens Services Councils and others, this initiative will focus on engaging students from pre-kindergarten to third grade. Local United Ways are tasked with partnering with their local school system, using a common state-wide pre and post assessment, tracking volunteer hours and providing books for children to take home. Implementation of the program is left to the discretion of each community. When schools improve, communities improve and sometimes kids just need someone who believes in them, Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County said. Volunteer training will be offered Thursday, Aug. 2 from 9-11 a.m. at the Marion County Public Library Headquarters located at 2720 E. Silver Springs Blvd, Ocala. Volunteers will be placed when school begins in the fall. Please contact the United Way by calling Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696 ext. 212 or jhathaway@uwmc.org.

Charles Bruce Decker, Jr., 53, of Citra, was southbound on 200 in front of Canopy Oak Plaza. As he approached the entrance about halfway between that Publix shopping center and the Winn Dixie, a Hyundai Azera driven by Kathleen A. Bauer, 90, reportedly turned in front of him and he collided with the right front of the car. Decker, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the Harley Ultra Classic he was driving, struck the windshield of the car and landed in the road. State Road 200 southbound was closed for approximately an hour after the 9:07 a.m. accident. BY JIM CLARK Editor Two young men were arrested after an attempted robbery at a Corridor Internet caf on Friday the 13th was foiled by a patron who shot at the two suspects. According to reports from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Davis G. Dawkins, 19, of 19556 S.W. 36th St. in Dunnellon, and Duwayne B. Henderson, 19, of 1318 S.W. 33rd St., Ocala, allegedly entered the Palms Internet Caf, 8484 S.W. State Road 200. One carried a baseball bat and struck a computer, while the other brandished a weapon and threatened customers. One of the customers, identified as Samuel Williams, pulled out a gun which he was reportedly legally carrying and shot at the two men, chasing them out the door, then locking the door behind them. Blood was found at the scene indicating that at least one of them had been struck by a bullet. Later the Sheriffs Office received information that two men were being taken from the Marion Oaks area to Shands Hospital with gunshot injuries. A detective interviewed them, and Dawkins said he had been confronted by two subjects at Scott Carrigan Field and forced to assist in the robbery. He also said he had previously worked for the Internet caf. The report states the same information during the arrest of Henderson, who allegedly was the robber with the weapon. Both men were arrested and eventually booked into the Marion County Jail. Dawkins bonded out on $11,000 bond, while Henderson was released on $31,000 bond.

Rare visit Residents of Stone Creek are part of Chamber-sponsored Cuba trip BY PATRICIA GIZZI Special to the Citizen Many of us have enjoyed the beauty and beaches of the Caribbean Islands. Recently, three Stone Creek residents visited a Caribbean Island that not many have the opportunity to visit the island of Cuba. The Ocala Chamber of Commerce sponsored a nine day People to People tour to the island of Cuba. Residents Rita Levy, Diane Callahan and I made the trip to Cuba along with other Ocala residents. The 45-minute flight from Miami on a chartered airline arrived safely and early enough to enjoy an entire day in Havana. The People to People tours were set up by President Obama and approximately 110,000 people have taken advantage of seeing the island. The tours are set by the state and the tour guides are state employees. We spent the first three days in Havana in a former Hilton Hotel. It was considered a four-star hotel by Cuban standards but here in the U.S. it would have been a twostar hotel. There was no air conditioning in the hallways or elevators. The rooms were clean and spacious but air conditioning was a problem, and many had to change their rooms because of air conditioning or shower problems. Since sewers in Cuba are old, toilet paper cannot be flushed down PLEASESEECUBA PAGE25 Vets honoredAt a quarterly ceremony at Veterans Park on July 14, the names of veterans who died during the previous three months were announced.
