Earlier this month, at a State Road 200 Coalition meeting, one had to leave early and the other two didnt attend. The format, however, was not for a debate, and some statements went unchallenged. Butch Verrando, one of the candidates and the only one who lives in District 5, said that he was categorically against receiving grants. He was responding to a question concerning funding for domestic violence, health care, child care, services for the mentally challenged and other social services. Those do not fall in the realm of government, he said, adding that there were churches and charities for those services. He said he wouldnt vote to accept grants except for transportation and utilities. That gets our money back. Then he added, There is nothing in the Constitution that says we have to take care of these people. He said there were exceptional charities in Marion County. Business and jobs drew the most attention. Earl Arnett said that one of the things we need to focus on is to make it easier for companies to settle in Marion County. Pat Gabriel also focused on jobs. We need to be more effective in our marketing, and she reeled off a list of the assets in the county. She added, We need to pay special attention to businesses already here. Verrando later chimed in on the recruiting of businesses with something he has said before. Ultimately the guy who makes the decision is the CEO (of a company, he said. What brings business here is the CEO and his family want to live here. He talked about the parks, and said We waste a lot of money on green stuff. In a final summary he added that he was a Constitutional Conservative. I believe in freedom and liberty, I dont believe in taxes. Francine Johannesen wanted to eliminate waste in government, saying, There are always more ways to get blood out of a turnip. She talked about combining some functions with the city. Also speaking at the forum were candidates Mike Amsden and Stan McClain, both incumbents. Their opponents did not attend. Candidates get together for forum Earl Arnett Pat Gabriel Francine Johannesen Butch Verrando PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELAllan Rickards is writing down the team reports of property damage and personal injury before handing the information in for radioing to the Command Center. This took place during OTOW CERT trainng exercise recently. More photos, Pages 24-25 BY MIKE ROPPEL The CERT team at On Top of the World had a drill Sunday to train members and practice a response to an emergency. The members met at the H&R building and were assigned teams and locations to respond to. One person in each team had a Ham radio or cell phone to communicate with. After arriving at their destination team members looked for damage to buildings and personal injury. Upon accessing the homes a report was phoned or radioed to the command center. Even though there was no real property damage or personal injury, the teams reported different types and amounts of damage and personal injury for the practice drill. CERT members wear Emergency Management TShirts and have photo IDs as well as reflective vests and helmets. For additional information about CERT contact Pat Woodbury at 352-854-8718. OTOW has CERT drill BY BOB WOODS Members of Citrus Fleet Reserve Association Branch 186 along with its Ladies Auxiliary donated $1,000.00 to Marion Countys Honor Flight program which is the fifth/sixth and last Honor Flight departing October 25, 2012 from Ocala. The flight will consist of two chartered 737 aircraft taking World War II veterans along with medical and escort personnel to Washington, D.C., to view their WWII Memorial erected in the veterans honor. The check presentation took place at Marion Countys Veterans Park at the Honor Flight Memorial. See photo at right.

Honor Flight donation County utility rates to drop in fallCome autumn, Marion County Utilities customers will start seeing more change in their pockets. The utility will begin implementing rate reductions on Oct. 1. County water customers will see a 7 percent reduction in their monthly bills. Wastewater customers will see their rates cut by 11 percent. The commission is determined to provide financial relief to citizens when opportunities become available, said Marion County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Charlie Stone. Giving these savings back to the public through decreased rates means injecting more disposable income into our community. The utility is able to provide the lower rates due to a combination of an improved bond rating and increased efficiencies. The Utilities department has been working hard to regionalize our operations, removing smaller plants from service and using the newer, more efficient plants, said Marion County Utilities Director Flip PLEASESEEUTILITY PAGE3 000C248

This course satisfies requirements set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the State Housing Initiative Partnership, Habitat for Humanity and other funders. Call 352-671-8400 for more information. The Marion Oaks Democratic Club will meet Monday, Aug. 20 at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. Speaker will be Frank Bruno, a candidate for Florida Senate. At the June 18 meeting, several events took place. Democrats were made aware that they can vote in the non-partisan primary election on Aug. 14. Democratic candidates and nonpartisan candidates for county court judge, and School Board members will be on the ballot. Paul Guilfoil, candidate for Marion County Court Judge was one of the speakers at this meeting. Guilfoil spoke about his 28 years experience as a practicing lawyer in Marion County. He mentioned that the legal system is underfunded so that instead of having a full complement of five judges there have been only four to deal with the mainly family issues cases that come to Marion County courts. Many of the issues are misdemeanors and the family members are usually seen as having just made a mistake. These kinds of cases require a certain degree of empathy on the part of court officers and Guilfoil pointed out that he understands that the common man who comes to these courts is more in need of rehabilitation than punishment and that is taken into consideration. Another speaker at this June meeting was Burt Stephens from the Senior Learning Institute, College of Central Florida, which has been around since 1992 with a mission to stimulate the brain, provide leisure activities, social interaction and learning opportunities for seniors. Mr. Stephens presentation was interesting and informative as he walked us through snippets of courses in history, science, art, French for Tourists, Basic Spanish, literature, computers, the internet, health and wellness. He won favor by saying there are no examinations (unless you choose to seek credits for a degree) and very little costs for books and materials. There is an annual membership fee as well as a shorter six month fee if you do not want to commit for an entire year. You can find information at seniorinstitute@cf.edu or (352) 291-4444 and begin to Celebrate Learning. Also at this meeting members of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club congratulated one of their own, Dorrick Nurse, on his upcoming trip to the United States 2012 Democratic National Convention, in which delegates of the Democratic Party will choose the partys nominees for President and Vice President in the 2012 National Election. The convention is scheduled to be held during the week of Sept. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. Lastly, the decision to cancel the dinner dance that was scheduled for June 23 was made by MODC Board because of a lack of support. We hope no one was inconvenienced and we look forward to your support at our next social event. Feel free to contact our President Winsome Stern at 352-3473457 if you have any questions.

The improved bond rating is a result of work from earlier in the year with Clerk of the Court finance staff. Finance and Utilities leaders worked with Moodys Investor Services and Standard and Poors to evaluate its utility bond rating. This led Moodys to upgrade the utility from A1 to Aa3, while Standard and Poors rated the utility a AA-. When granting the upgrade, Moodys cited good management reflected in improved financial performance and ongoing system consolidation. The new rating allowed the county to obtain an even lower interest rate and changed the lifetime loan savings on the $40 million bond to $4.5 million; the bonds will mature in 2033. We are extremely pleased with the results of the bond sale, said Clerk of the Court Finance Director John Garri. The upgrade of our utility rating, coupled with the high demand for our bonds by investors, further reflects the great job our Utility Department is doing. The savings generated from the bond refinancing will save the county an average of $250,000 per year in debt service costs.

We think it met a real need for local students interested in technology, said Dr. Row Rogacki, IHMC Associate Director. Were already planning next years sessions. The camp focused on the STEM curriculum: science, technology, engineering and math. Campers worked on robot assembly and testing, which included setting goals for their creations (such as programming a robot to navigate a maze without hitting a wall), and using science and math to reach them. The sessions were made possible through the generosity of numerous sponsors and local business partners and organizations. The sponsors enabled 62 local students to advance their understanding of robotics through hands-on experience under the guidance of expert instruction. The lead agency in bringing the camp to Ocala was the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE), a National Science FoundationATE Regional Center of Excellence. FLATE has helped offer summer robotics camps for more than six years in communities across Florida. The camps have grown in popularity, size and complexity through partnering with organizations such as IHMC. FLATE and its executive director, Dr. Marilyn Barger, helped integrate the Robotics Camp with Ocala IHMCs educational outreach efforts. The College of Central Florida provided the camps Lego MindstormTM robots, and Workforce Connection provided laptop computers to create a hands-on learning environment where technology was the star. Campers also visited the Lockheed Martin Ocala Plant to gain perspective on how the miniature robotics system they worked with translates into the real world. The camp instructor, nationally recognized teacher Dr. Gregory Cruz, and his top assistant, Florida Tech graduate engineering student Kyle Fontaine, were critical to the campers progress, as were local high school volunteers who encouraged, guided and applauded the campers efforts. Mackenzie Meiers, a rising fifth-grade camper, summed it up best in her thank you note to the sponsors: This camp was a once-in-a-lifetime week of learning, building and excitement! It has been the thrill of my summer. The Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) is one of the nations premier research organizations with world-class scientists and engineers investigating a broad range of topics related to building technological systems aimed at amplifying and extending human cognitive and perceptual capacities. IHMC headquarters are in Pensacola, Florida and a branch research facility has recently opened in Ocala. Middle schoolers enjoy robotics program Amberjack season to open in GulfGreater amberjack will open for recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. The season closes annually June 1. The minimum size limit for greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico waters is 30 inches fork length, which is measured from the tip of the fishs closed mouth to the center of the fork in the tail. In Atlantic state waters, the size limit is 28 inches fork length. Recreational anglers may take one fish per person, per day. Reef fish gear rules apply when fishing for greater amberjack. In Gulf waters, this means anglers must use circle hooks and have a dehooking device and a venting tool on their vessel. Using these tools will help increase a fishs chance of survival if it is caught and returned to the water. State waters in the Gulf extend from shore to nine nautical miles and in the Atlantic from shore to three nautical miles; federal waters extend from those boundaries to about 200 miles from shore.

The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Newborn babies saving peoples lives was the goal back in 1998 when LifeCord got its start as the first public umbilical cord blood bank in the Southeast, and today that hope stretches clear around the globe. LifeCord, which is a program of LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, collects umbilical cord blood donations from eight hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. We are zeroing in on 100. We recently shipped out our 97th cord blood unit for transplant, and so far LifeCord babies have helped patients in 23 states and nine foreign countries, said LifeCord Cellular Therapy Manager Amy Lambert. LifeCord approaches the milestone during July, which is set aside as Cord Blood Awareness Month. Twenty years ago the umbilical cord was considered medical waste. Now, every day somewhere in the world, cord blood is saving lives. Thats because the specialized blood cells found in the cord can be used by patients suffering from leukemia or lymphoma who need marrow transplants. The cord blood acts as a seed to help them grow healthy marrow. It can be stored frozen for nearly 20 years and is already tested, typed and ready for use when it is needed. And the use of cord blood has increased dramatically. According to the National Marrow Donor Program, in 2011 more than 40 percent of transplant patients from racially and ethnically diverse communities received a cord blood transplant. In Florida, babies born at Shands at the University of Florida and North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville, Fla. can donate. There is no charge for donating, and the procedure is simple and safe, said Lambert. Encouraging more parents to donate will further expand the use of cord blood, and more lives will be saved. For additional information call LifeSouth at 888-7952707 or on the web at www.lifesouth.org.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com A ll the power players have reported in about the sexabuse scandal at Penn State. Jerry Sandusky, the perpetrator, has been convicted on 45 counts of molesting young boys. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh has filed his investigation report with the colleges Board of Trustees, saying that for 10 years senior officials of Penn State ignored their obligations to the student body and betrayed the reputation of the university. The Trustees have removed the imposing statue of former football coach Joe Paterno, the man to whom they and the administrators, faculty, and alumni paid homage for decades. For a while at least, there will be no genuflecting to the statue of saint JoePa. Lastly, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has passed judgment on Penn State by expunging from its records all football games in the years 1998 through 2011 the years of the predator. In addition, the university was fined $60 million and banned from post-season bowl games for four years. The number of authorized football scholarships has been reduced from 25 to 15. The school was spared the death penalty of a few years of no football. In 1938, Robert Maynard Hutchins, president of the University of Chicago contributed an article to the Saturday Evening Post magazine about a long-running college football controversy. The title was Gate Receipts and Glory. He began by saying The end of football season is about to release the nations colleges to the pursuit of education. The last nickel will be rung up at the gate; the last halfback will receive his check; and the last alumnus will try to pay off the bets he can recall. Hutchins said college athleticism had become a perversion of amateur athletics. He said athleticism was commercial promotion of college football for the entertainment of the public and enrichment of the universities. University budgets became more and more dependent on football receipts. Larger stadiums were built. Athletes were treated as professionals. The campus clich was that courses on earth science (rocks for jocks) were designed to guarantee football players eligibility to play. Hutchins vocal opponents included sports writers, alumni, professors, trustees, and students. College football had a significant public following long before television. Some fanatical supporters believed football was a patriotic defense against communism. Albert Lasker, a wealthy Chicago trustee and leader of the opposition to Hutchins, maintained that Football is what unifies a university. What would take its place? Hutchins response was education. Hutchins won a small and temporary victory when he eliminated varsity football at Chicago, but he lost the national argument against professionalism to alumni, barbers, hot dog vendors, and bookies, all of whom lived for the kickoff of college football season. Was the Penn State sex scandal inevitable? Since 1938 and before, trustees, administrators, athletes, alumni, and sports fans have been aware of the culture of cover-up which guards the public respectability of semi-professional college football and assures a continuing flow of gate receipts and glory. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 T ake a moment to look in your closet and check the label on your clothes.

And chances are, your clothes werent made in the U.S. Apparently, the U.S. Olympic Committee doesnt check the labels, either. There was a big stink raised last week when it was discovered that the Olympic team was wearing clothing that was made in China. Some people were quick to jump on the U.S. Olympic Committee for making this choice. Olympic officials scoffed at the complaints. The clothing, they say, came from an American company, Ralph Lauren, which supports American athletes. The opening and closing ceremony clothes and casual clothes to be worn during the Olympics are all being supplied by Ralph Lauren. Committee officials also pointed out that the Olympics are privately funded, not run by the government as they are in many other countries. In other words, we have to save money. Congress reacted negatively immediately. Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat, said the clothes should be put in a big pile and burned. Rep. John Boehner, a Republican, said that the Olympic Committee should know better. But lets face it. This is just a result of a major problem with America. While our textile industry suffers, people like the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are providing products that meet the needs of the American people. Americans tend to buy things that look good, are durable and are not overly expensive. When the U.S. starts producing items equal with those standards, the tide will turn toward buying American goods. I laugh when I read complaints that one of the presidential candidates led the way in outsourcing jobs to other countries. People who say that know nothing of history. This is nothing new. I remember when my children were young, they used to praise the electronics they had from Sony. To them, that was the best electronic company there was. At their age, they didnt care about jobs or factories or workers or things like that. All they knew is when they turned on a Walkman, it worked perfectly. The foreign invasion of goods extends to almost all walks of life, to all types of products, and has for some time. And were all probably guilty of buying items that were made elsewhere. Sometimes, you cant get stuff made in America. So before we look negatively at the Olympic officials, lets try to fix the problem in America. Lets bring jobs back to our country. Some of it has already been done. Some people drive foreign cars, but they were made at assembly lines here in the U.S. That can be done with a bunch of other products. And lets send some Olympic clothing to the Chinese. Maybe their athletes will wear items that are made in the U.S., and we can cancel each other out.

T he National Collegiate Athletic Association has come down hard on Penn State, with multi-million dollar fines, bowl bans, scholarship limits and vacated victories. The question is, who suffers the most? Joe Paterno? Maybe his family is bothered by the statements against the legendary coach, but after all, you cant slander or libel the dead. A persons reputation dies with him. Were sure Joe isnt sitting there listening to all this, either. Jerry Sandusky? Actually, hes been convicted. He probably doesnt care about the Penn State scholarships or other sanctions. Hes probably more worried about some of the guys in the yard getting him alone. Were sure theyre not all Nittany Lions fans. The other men who have been charged with perjury? They have legal problems of their own and probably dont care what the NCAA does to Penn State. The former president and other officials, who are gone but so far face no charges? They just want to get away from there as far as possible. So who does that leave? The new coach and the players, who evidently had nothing to do with all of this, and the current students of the university who dont happen to be football players but will forever be linked to the scandal. In other words, the innocent parties. Of course, those who are suffering the most are the abuse victims, and that should never be pushed aside for football. Everyone is hoping that the scars will heal for these young men. Anyone who takes a woe is me attitude just has to read the grand jury report, realize what these victims went through, and then apologize for worrying more about themselves than the boys. But the other ones we feel sorry for are the innocent players. They are suddenly facing a bleak future at Penn State. The NCAA said they could transfer without penalty, and it might even allow schools that accept Penn State players to exceed the scholarship limit for this year. Among those stars, there are probably a few who have pro football abilities and aspirations. They wont have any problem finding a new school. But what about the borderline players, particularly the seniors, the ones who needed good exposure this season to possibly get drafted. This could be a career-ender for some of them. The players who stay will undoubtedly be outmanned in some, if not all, of their contests, especially if a lot of players leave. Of course, it could work the other way, and if most of the players stay, as the new coach says they will, the team could have something to prove by winning, even if it isnt eligible for a conference title or a bowl game. Theyll get a fond greeting at home, but can you imagine what theyll hear from some of the insensitive fans on the road? One sanction that was not imposed was a TV ban. Naturally, we can see some of the greedy networks scrambling to show Penn State games this fall, expecting high ratings, even if the games arent good. That exposure is good for the players who remain. But as is usually the case, when one public person does something offensive, it has a ripple effect through society in his area. Thats true for Jerry Sandusky. And while Paterno may be guilty of failing to act, the major responsibility for all these problems falls on Sandusky. Hes the guilty one that is being punished, and we hope that the residual effects arent too harsh on those left behind.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Property Tax ReferendumsThis is in response to the Letter to the Editor in the South Marion Citizen July 20 edition in which the writer railed against the upcoming referendums to increase property taxes to support Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) and Marion County Public Schools (MCPS). His preference was for sales taxes to be increased rather than property taxes and he blamed the Board of County Commissioners for proposing the property tax increases rather than sales tax increases. His anger is misplaced as the commissioners have no input in either the MCPS or the MRMC tax proposals. The resolutions for MCPSs two referendums that will appear on the Aug. 14 ballot were presented at the commissioners May 1 meeting. To quote the county attorney: Section 1011.73, Fla. Stat. (2011), subsection (2) authorizes the district school board, pursuant to resolution, to direct the county commissioners to call an election at which the electors within the school district may approve an ad valorem tax millage as authorized under Section 1011.71(9), Fla. Stat. (2011). He went on to explain that the commissioners simply act as a conduit and cannot refuse to pass MCPSs resolutions on to the Supervisor of Elections although all five commissioners objected to them. Video available at: http://sire.marioncountyfl.org/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?mee tid660&doctypeSUMMARY (The discussion lasts about 15 minutes and starts at 01:23:45.) The people responsible for putting these two property tax referendums on the ballot are school board members Angie Boynton, Bobby James, Judi Zanetti and Ron Crawford. The resolution for MRMCs referendum that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot has not been presented to the County Commission yet but again the commissioners will have no legal alternative but to agree to pass it on to the Supervisor of Elections. The people responsible for putting MRMCs referendum on the ballot are hospital district trustees Dr. Mike Jordan, Dr. Ravi Chandra, Dr. Srisha Rao, Kulbir Gumman, and Jon Kurtz. In the trustee meeting discussion regarding sales tax support for MRMC, it was stated that the tax would yield about $14 million per year but it would have to be shared with all the indigent care providers in Marion County. MRMCs administrators estimated that MRMC provides about 40 percent of indigent care and therefore the hospitals share would only be about $5.9 million per year. (This is in sharp contrast to the propaganda in which it is implied that MRMC is the only provider of indigent care in Marion County.) The sales tax option was rejected as being insufficient. Sales tax support of MRMC would be fairer than property tax but neither tax will solve their financial problems. Consider the fact that MRMC has written off $18 million of charity care (those making less than 200 percent of the poverty level) and $37 million of other bad debt in the first eight months of this fiscal year. At this rate they will have written off a total of $83 million, including $27 million of charity care, by the end of the fiscal year. At least with a sales tax the people who receive this $83 million of free healthcare would have to contribute a little bit toward the cost of it. Carl Crabtree Ocala Romney and financesAttention all Tea Party people. Do you think that Mitt Romney is taxed enough? Do you have accounts in tax shelters in Switzerland? Or the Cayman Islands? How does it feel to find out that most of us are in a higher tax bracket than Romney. What a great country. We also now find that Romney avoided the draft during the Vietnam era. He sought and got a deferment to become a missionary. Did he go to Africa, Haiti or some other impoverished country in South American? Are you kidding? After all, he is a conservative. He got a deferment, became a missionary, goes where he wants to preach. He went to Paris, France. This guy is all heart. His equity trust company, Bain Capital, looted and tore apart American companies, bankrupted them and sold off their assets. Now you know why he wanted General Motors and Chrysler to go belly up. Bain Capital cost thousands of Americans to lose their jobs. And guess what, most equity companies fall into the 15 percent tax bracket. Whats yours? He has five sons. Have any of them served in the military? Im guessing that none have. They fall into the 1 percent who dont need the bonuses that our government uses to get most of the low-income people to enlist in the armed forces. Cut out the bonuses and you will see the volunteer army slowly disappear. Maybe then, they will bring back the draft and make it everybodys duty to support their country. Why does it seem that all of these conservative, patriotic Republicans all avoided the draft? Here are some of them: Pat Buchanan, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove and best of all, Rush Limbaugh. In closing, Mitt Romney made that famous statement, I quote, I love to fire people. We should pick up that quote and fire him. Also, why wont Romney release his tax returns besides the one he grudgingly was forced to do. He was in the 12 percent tax bracket. Is it because hes over taxed or he hasnt paid taxes in all of those years. Just wondering. William Yakush Ocala School taxesAfter reading a recent letter about the school tax increase request, I started wondering about the cost of education and what share my husband and I have paid through the years. Weve been home owners for 50 years and we both had 12 years of public education. If we consider it at todays prices of over $5,000 per student per year and probably an average of $1,000 of our real estate taxes going toward education each of those years, were still behind about 70 years worth of taxes. That makes public education seem like quite a bargain to me. Ill continue to support our local schools and their need for tax increases. These children are the people who will be working in my doctors offices, my bank, my drug store, etc. in just a few years. I want them to receive the best education they can get so that they can be good at what they do in the future. My home value may not depend on local school quality any more since I live in one of our 55+ communities but my quality of life will be helped by having well educated people serving me. Everybody pays property taxes in some form or other. Some of us pay the actual bill; others pay in increased costs for rent and/or services, even the cost of groceries, gas, etc. include a portion for taxes to cover the building involved. Im a member of the retiree peer group and I support the school tax increase and so do many of my friends. Mary Bohn On Top of the WorldQuarterly honor rollA thank you to the organizers and all who participated in the Quarterly Honor Roll at Veterans Park. The great ceremony honored veterans who had died in the previous three months. My husband, Paul R. Millett, U.S. Army, was among the many veterans honored. He was one of only six in his 168th Engineer Combat Battalion who escaped capture or death during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. It was truly an honor to attend the ceremony in his memory. God bless you all. Avis R.

friends watching the local fire department put out a grass fire. Kathy was seated on the back stoop of the fire engine along with the other children. A young man was speeding down the road and had an epileptic seizure. He lost control of his vehicle and it slammed into the back of the fire truck. Sadly, Peggys sister died from her injuries. That tragic loss is something that neither Peggy nor her family ever really got over. After graduating from Mount Saint Mary High School, Peggy worked for New York Telephone as a switchboard operator. After six months of doing that, Peggy became the fourth generation of her family to work for Western Electric. For the next five years she worked for that company building her skills and receiving training in a diverse number of assignments. Among her duties, she took acting lessons and performed as a Can Can Dancer; a clown and at Christmas, she was an elf. It was at Western Electric that she met her husband Joe who worked for her Dad. Joe and Peggy married and had three children. During those early years, the federal government broke up the major telephone companies and so Joe was transferred to Georgia. Peggy, now a stay at home Mom moved with him. She remained a housewife and Mom until her youngest was 12 years old. With her past experience and well documented work ethic, Peggy was hired on at American Telephone & Telegraph. She was placed in the front office as an executive secretary. At around the same time, her marriage of 21 years came to an end and she and Joe divorced. Her youngest child, daughter Kelley, was 14 at the time. Peggy discounts the burden of being a single mom saying that she and her three children got along very well. In spite of the pain that these memories bring, she still manages a smile reflecting a mothers pride and love. Peggys energy level and need for change didnt allow her to stay saddled to a desk for very long. An opportunity opened for her to get out into the field and make not only more money, but to seek new experiences. She managed to work in the new Cable Installation Department; Production Division and even drove a fork lift. The question begged so I asked it, Did you ever drop the cargo off your fork lift? She laughed and answered, Everyone does that at least once. Its interesting to see the spools of cable go rolling around the floor. With 25 years of service to the company, Peggy retired. Her father was ill and living in Homosassa Springs with his second wife. In order to help care for him, Peggy moved down to Florida but shortly after her arrival, he was hospitalized. A few weeks later, he passed away. Because of her friends here in Cherrywood, Peggy bought a house and moved into our community. That was eight years ago. She manages to stay close with her three children. Joe Junior is a Senior Master Sergeant in the Air Force with tours in the Gulf War and Panama. Hes stationed at Dobbins AFB as an instructor. Kathy her oldest daughter lives in Loganville, Georgia, with her husband and five children. Kelley, her youngest, is a working Mom who resides in Dawsonville, Georgia, with her son. In total, Peggy has 10 grandchildren Antiquing furniture; pool; swimming; bocce ball; 100 days of Summer; Veterans Club and most of the other events here at Cherrywood are just a few of the hobbies and activities that Peggy enjoys. Speaking of hobbies, a little know fact about Peggy is that shes a car bug. She worked on and raced cars at the Kayuga Race Track and at various private air strips near Erie. She has a great mechanical ability with engines and did much of the prep work for other drivers. Peggys abilities and efficiency was exemplified as recently as the 7th of July. Peggy was in charge of the servers for the Veterans Appreciation Dinner and under her supervision, with the assistance of hostess Eve Houghtaling, over 120 people were served in less than half an hour. That was quite an accomplishment and a testament to her leadership skills. Among her many other qualities Peggy is a devoted and loyal friend. When needed, she is always there with a caring heart; a quick and easy smile; and compassionate encouragement. Far from a boring life, Peggy has lived through tragedy and hardships with enthusiasm; vitality and a sincere love of people. We at Cherrywood are grateful to Peggy for contributing to our quality of life and for brightening and enriching our community.Contact the writer aturperssec@yahoo.com Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Politics should be simplePolitics should be a relatively simple process: we, the people express our wishes, our politicians listen to our needs, and vote them accordingly in Congress. Now, this may seem to some a simplistic view, but politics shouldnt be much more difficult than that. When the trappings of the political parties making up our republic are stripped away, two things remain: freedom and we, the people. Defending these two should be the principal goal of any administration. If our freedom is being compromised, we must ask ourselves as Abraham Lincoln quoted: Is this a ... government of the people, by the people, for the people ...? If our government disregards our wishes as has been done many times by this administration, if it does things that are not in the best interest of the American people or our Constitution and ignores things that are the answer will be a resounding no. If that is the case, we need a new administration; the one we have now isnt working for the good of all Americans or for our Republic. Joe OHara Ocala The race cardDont be surprised over the far left playing the race card on the House of Representatives voting Atty. Gen. (AG) Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. They say that the GOP is persecuting Holder because hes Americas first black AG. This has been the lefts strategy for at least 60 years ignore the facts and cry racism. In the early 1950s, when Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (both Jews) were convicted of and executed for espionage, the left claimed they were victims of religious bigotry and other government racist attitudes. They ignored the fact that the presiding judge, two prosecutors, and at least 15 members of the original jury pool were Jewish. In 1996, after analyzing the declassified Verona Cables, liberal (and Jewish) Washington Post writer Nicholas von Hoffman concluded that the Rosenbergs were in fact guilty. Al Shumard Pine RunMedal of Honor The service members who I have always held the highest regards for are the recipients of the countrys highest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. As far as I am concerned, a person cannot receive a higher award. The Purple Heart ranks almost as high. Our Supreme Court has belittled all military awards. It used to be against the law to falsely claim ownership of these prestigious awards. Now they have made it possible and lawful for anyone to falsely claim to be a recipient of any military award. They claim it is freedom of speech for a person to lie about such an important achievement. I have lost all respect for the nine members of our highest court. Richard D.

I just celebrated another birthday, which got me to thinking about the good old days. You can usually tell how old a person is by how many times they refer to the good old days, or the phrase, when I was a youngster. I have come to the conclusion that getting old is not something to be ashamed of in the least. A person reaches a certain age simply because they have not died yet, which is nothing to make a person feel guilty. Although I do not think too much of birthdays, I intend to have as many as possible. Dont get me wrong. I am ready to go when my time is up, but, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy life. My recent birthday got me thinking about the good old days of my youth. Memory is a funny thing. For the most part, we remember the good of our youth and rarely the bad. I often hear some old geezer say, I wish I were 16 again. If their memory was serving them correctly, 16 was not a very good year for any of us. I am glad I have gotten beyond my 16th birthday. As I remember it, it was a terrible year. I can honestly say that the best years of my life are the ones I am living now. Sure, I have some regrets. I have done things I probably should not have done, and I did not do some things I probably should have. If I had to live my life over again not only will I make the same mistakes but also I probably would add to the list quite significantly. I do not want to live my life over again. Once is enough for me, thank you. But as I was thinking of those good old days, I could not help but think what I was thinking about back then. It went something like this. When I was in school sitting in Ms. Ammons class, I was daydreaming about going fishing. All I could think about was what kind of fish were biting out by the lake this afternoon. Ms. Ammon would call upon me and I would have no idea what she was talking about. In my mind, I was fishing. In my body, I was suffering under classititis. It is what students, especially boys, get when they are bored with the class they are in at the time. It involves a lot of jittering. Where was your mind? Ms. Ammon would ask. I hope you werent fishing, now, were you? One thing about good ole Ms. Ammon, she could read a boys mind like a book. Maybe because there are so many blank pages in a young boys mind. I would suffer through counting down the hours and minutes and seconds until the school day would end. You did not hear it from me, and this is not a confession, but on those rare occasions when I would skip school and go fishing, I had another problem. I was where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, but then as I threw out the line waiting for a bite all I could think of was what was happening back in school I was missing. I often wondered if Ms. Ammon was missing me. I would smile and then the fish would bite and my attention would be on the task at hand. It was not long before my mind would wander back to the classroom. What were they doing? What was I missing? For the life of me, I cannot understand why, but I could never enjoy fishing when I was playing hooky from school for thinking about what I was missing back in school. One of the advantages of getting older is developing a sense of maturity. Dont ask me to define maturity, because I am not quite sure what it really means. As a person matures, he begins to learn how to enjoy the moment. This, I say, comes with age. A lot of age in some instances. By the time you learn to enjoy the moment, it is gone. I have come a long way from good ole Ms. Ammons classroom. I will not tell you how many years it has been, lets just say a lot. I still find myself doing the same thing. I am in the middle of doing one thing and I begin thinking of what I could be doing. I could be home reading a book. Then when I go home and begin reading, I think about what I could be doing in the office. I have tried to take a day off for many years. I just cannot seem to manage it. I take a day off and think of what I really could be doing if I was working. When I am working, I think of how much fun I could have if I was taking the day off. I hope to live long enough to be able to bring these two opposites together in some magnificent activity. I have not got there yet. I am aspiring, to be sure. David was right. This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 118:24 KJV). The only thing I need to do today is to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord. Rev. James L.

Ocala Health System and Walgreens have teamed up again on a new program which provides the delivery of medications to hospitalized patients prior to discharge. The program eases patients transition from hospital to home, eliminating the need to stop at a pharmacy along the way and offering a personal consultation with a Walgreens pharmacy staff member. Launched earlier this month at Ocala Regional, the program was implemented at West Marion Community Hospital in March 2012 and has grown to be a popular patient service. Prior to discharge, patients have the option to have their prescription(s) delivered to their bedside by a Walgreens pharmacy technician. Walgreens completes the request for any necessary insurance authorizations, fills the prescription(s), and delivers the prescriptions(s) directly to the patients hospital room. The service also includes a personal consultation between the patient and pharmacist to help aid with patient understanding of the medication therapy. A Walgreens pharmacist will also follow-up with patients within 48 hours after discharge to answer any questions or address any concerns. Other benefits to patients include: a free patient hotline for medication consultation with a pharmacist and refill reminders for patients with chronic conditions such as cancer, organ transplant, and HIV. We are pleased to provide this important health care service to our patients and their caregivers. said JoAnn Ankoviak, chief nursing officer, Ocala Regional Medical Center. In addition to providing convenience, our goal is to empower our patients with the education necessary to ensure the ordered prescriptions are taken in the correct dosage at the correct time. Ocala Health System (OHS) encompasses Ocala Regional Medical Center, a 200-bed facility located in the heart of Ocala, and West Marion Community Hospital, a 70-bed hospital located in West Marion County. OHS has the only Commission on Cancer approved cancer center in Marion County and is directly affiliated with the Moffitt Cancer Center. The hospitals offer a host of other quality and award winning services including bariatric surgery, orthopedic care and joint replacement, robotic surgery, cardiac and vascular services including open heart surgery and interventional procedures, emergency, neurological and rehabilitation services.

THE BEGINNERS GOODBYE By Anne Tyler When picking up a Tyler novel, you can anticipate certain thingsa Baltimore setting and quirky, unpredictable characters motivated by either a need for love or for self-discovery. In The Beginners Goodbye the baffling narrative voice belongs to gimpy, geeky thirty-something Aaron Woolcott who because of a childhood virus has lost the use of his right limbs and walks with a cane and a brace. That coupled with an unfortunate stammer made the first woman to show interest in him a candidate for matrimony. Thus, at age 24 he marries Dorothy Rosales, eight years older and 15 inches shorter than he is. They make an odd couple, to be sure, looking more like father and child to those passing by. Even so, they had been married happily, unremarkably for 11 years when Dorothy dies. In Chapter 2 Aaron tells us how it happened. He was home from his publishing job nursing a cold when Dorothy, a radiation oncologist, returns home early from work. She looks for her customary snack of Triscuits but cant find the box. The pair falls into a stupid argument. Then each retreats for solitude she to the sun porch and he to the bedroom. Suddenly he hears an alarming cascade of noises. A tree had fallen on the sun porch injuring his wife fatally. Either trying to resolve old issues or resulting from the intricate byways of human consciousness, Aaron starts seeing dead Dorothys ghost. When a colleague asks him how hes dealing with his grief, Aaron struggles to explain: In a way its like the grief has been covered over with some kind of blanket. Its still there, but the sharpest edges are . muffled sort of. Then every now and then, I lift a corner of the blanket, just to check and whoa! Like a knife! Im not sure that ever will change. Even loyal fans may have trouble thinking of Aaron as only in his thirties. The voice seems to belong to a much older man. And alR emember that Oak Run Travel is a function of ORHA and that trips are for Oak Run residents and their guests. Here are three trips coming up this fall: Due to a typographical error there has been some confusion about the date for The Sound of Music at The Show Palace in Hudson, Florida. The correct date is Sunday, Oct. 7. So, with the correct date now known, be sure to call hosts John and Marion Mowen to get your ticket for this classic by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Hear the iconic Climb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi and especially the namesake Sound of Music made famous by Julie Andrews. For $68.50 you get the buffet which starts at 1 p.m., the show starting at 3 p.m. and the bus drivers tip. We are looking forward to Bok Tower Gardens on Saturday, Nov. 10. The bus leaves at 1 p.m. from Oak Run at a cost of $55 per person with a box lunch and bus drivers tip included. The box lunch has the option of a tropical salad, a turkey and swiss sandwich or a vegetarian soup. You go on a tour of the beautiful grounds followed by reserved seats to hear the Orlando Civic Orchestra play at their annual outdoor concert. Call Jack and Eleanor Foggan, your hosts. A couple is driving around France on their vacation. Stanly and Brenda consider themselves lucky when they find a hotel at a stop in a small village. In A Bed Full of Foreignersthe fun begins when, only a couple of hours into the night, seductions and confrontations run rampant as almost everybody in the hotel winds up in the wrong bed. Join Paul and Emily Pike, your hosts, in discovering the reasons for the hijinks and miscues as Stanly and Brenda wish they had found a quiet seaside resort. This is our annual Thanksgiving Day trip which falls on Nov. 22 this year. The bus leaves at 8:30 a.m. and the buffet at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre begins at 11 a.m. The show follows at 1 p.m. You get a great show and a wonderful buffet plus the bus drivers tip for only $58 per person. Call Paul and Emily to assure your seat.

Our choreographer Shari Weber has developed a dance routine to go along with the song they sing which may not end up as the highlight of the play but possibly the funniest. Early ticket sales in August are on the 8th from 8:30 to 9 a.m., the 11th from 8 to 10 a.m. and the 14th from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Remember, if you have difficulty getting to a ticket sale, you can obtain one by phoning Linda Noel at 352-873-9908.

The show will be on stage at the Palm Grove Club on Oct. 12, 13 and 14. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, July 17, we played Aces Wild. For every hole that the player had no putt or only one putt, she deducted 1 stroke from her total net score. We started play during a sun shower but we were able to play all 18 holes before the heavier rain came in the afternoon. We do have several lakes in the DRAs on the course from the recent heavy rain but all in all our course drains very well and the ground crew keeps it in wonderful shape. The winners were: First Flight 1st place, Sylvia Zappia, 2nd place tie, Pat Blackburn and Carol Allison; Second Flight 1st place tie, Lynn Houghton and Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st place, Mary Kay Frandsen, 2nd place tie, Inge Szabo and Ilene Simnowitz. Jan Tennant was Closest to the Pin. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn July 19 we played low net with full handicap. We started out in the rain, then it cleared up as we got a few holes in. Elsa Berbig came in 1st Ilene Simnowitz 2nd and tied in 3r. Patty Waddell and BJ Lassiter. IIene Simnowitz had a chip in on hole #5 and Cindy Kocher had a chip in on hole #11. Patty Waddell was closest to pin on #16. We are so glad Patty Waddell is back with us now,we have missed her for several months. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game for July 20 was three best net. There were 35 players who participated, and the scores reflected the impact of the hot weather. The winner with a score of 197 was the team of Dick Blackburn, Bruce Stover, Mike Madill, and Larry Soine. Second with a 198 was the team of Ron Catapano, Al Prachel, Virgil Hein, and Joe Paller. Tied for third with 199 were the teams of Al Millett, Bill Staiger, Ed Simnowitz, and Steve Szabo; and Emmett Dowling, Sam Owens, Dick Rizzo, and Duke Slayton. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Virgil Hein, and Ed Simnowitz.

While many may think of potpourri as only a mixture of fragrant plant material, it is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. So, here comes such a collection that doesnt smell too badly, I hope.What so ever ye sow, that shall ye also reapThe family and estate of Cyrus McCormick, the inventor of the reaping machine, funded a school in Chicago for training ministers. Obviously one area of study was counseling and consoling the sick and dying, and bringing healing to grieving survivors. Of course, at McCormick no one ever referred to Death as the Grim Reaper; students and faculty obviously called it the International Harvester.Bank for all sizesThe bank had been robbed. A very short person had brought in a crystal ball on a pillow and declared, This crystal ball is really a bomb. Give me all the money in the bank, or be utterly destroyed. Not having been assailed with a crystal ball before, the tellers were dumb founded and reluctantly complied. The short person left with all the money. Interviewing the bank president, the police asked, Describe the perpetrator. The bank president replied, Upon reflection I would say you are looking for a small medium at large. Sleepless in Settle As they were leaving church one Sunday, a man confided to his friend that he was suffering from insomnia. The friend asserted that he had no trouble getting to sleep. Really. the first man inquired. Do you count sheep? No, was the retort. I talk to the shepherd. Think The man complained that every time he put on his hat he heard music. The doctor fixed him up. He removed his hatband. My electricity went out and I felt powerless to do anything about it. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, You stay here; Ill go on a head. I used to be a tap dancer until I fell in the sink. The watchmaker is always so tired because he works around the clock. My cat got stolen. I think she was taken by a purr snatcher. Bob the plumber is really sweet on this girl, Celine, who comes from a really poor family. So he put in a Poor Celine Throne for her. The circus fired their accountant for juggling the books. My wife really likes to make pottery, but to me its just kiln time. Did you ever notice, the Roman Numerals for forty are XL? Waiter: There hasnt been much stirring around this restaurant. Diner: Why not? Waiter: Somebody stole all the spoons. Motion promotionI was in my car driving along, when my boss called. He said, Youve been promoted. I swerved. Then he called a second time, and said, Youve been promoted again. And I swerved again. He called a third time, and said, Youre managing director. And I crashed into a tree. A policeman came up, and asked, What happened to you? I said, I careered off the road. Cool reception An American couple, fond of all aged richly historic England things, decided to retire to London to search for a castle. During their July vacation they bought a wonderful ancient house having a long and noble history. They sold their house in Chicago and in November crossed the pond to retire. To their horror, they found that their new home was abysmally cold. They immediately set about trying to get a central heating system installed. Sadly, contractors told them in a house that old, it simply wasnt feasible. I was afraid it would come down to this, the husband finally said. What, honey? the wife asked. We cant have archaic and heat it, too. Sweet and smellyA man went into a convenience store and picked up a bottle of fruit juice and a packet of sugar. He put the sugar into his pocket, paid for the fruit juice and then left the store. A security man stopped him and said, I saw you pay for the fruit juice but not the packet of sugar. The man replied, No you dont understand I didnt steal the sugar; look at this. He pulled out the bottle of fruit juice and said, look here, it says sugar free.

running in full swing; prepared to help our residents survive and thrive during any kind of natural disaster. Wednesday morning they met to disseminate vital information about various pieces of equipment to those in attendance. Next month is a very important meeting. Everyone is urged to come out and see Your Survival; a movie by Dr. Arnett. An expert on the subject, Dr. Arnett has been seen on numerous TV shows and documentaries. This presentation is not only interesting and entertaining, it is life saving. Youll be able to see this program on Aug. 15 at 8:30 a.m. in the clubhouse. In addition you can meet the CERT team; ask questions; get important information and helpful suggestions on what to do in emergency situations. The CERT team has collected information of nearly sixty of our residents with Special Needs. The forms have been filled out and filed confidentially in a safe place. In the event of an emergency situation, those who filled out the paperwork will receive the assistance they need to be safe and secure. You can pick up a Special Needs form from any CERT member or from Geri in the office. We are proud of our CERT team members and all they do for our community. You can join this all important group of certified trained specialists. See any CERT member for further information or better yet, come on out for the presentation of August 15th and see for yourself what great things you can do. Reminder August is a month when many of us take time to catch our breath and spend time with family and friends while we gear up for another exciting season of fun activities. Because of that, there will be no: Movie Night; Veterans Club Meeting; Trivia; Camera Club or Garden Club meetings in August. Also, Bocce Ball will not be played on the last two Saturdays of the month; Aug.t 18 or 25. The group will still get together on the first two Saturdays, the 4th & 11th so come to the courts behind the clubhouse and have some fun on those two nights. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who makes a significant contribution to the quality of life here in the community. This week we talk with Peggy Konar, who has become a fixture at Cherrywood by her bright personality and hard work. Always modest, Peggy would say that she has had a boring life, but in reality she is not boring in any way. She was born in Chicago and lived with two brothers and two sisters for the beginning of her life. When Peggy was only 4, her father was transferred to Buffalo, New York, by Western Electric. Her Dad was the third generation of her family to be employed by that company. Naturally the family went with him and they relocated away from their relatives and friends. Because they were a close family, until she was 13, Peggy would spend the summers with her aunt and cousins in Chicago. She remembers those times fondly. She enjoyed going to the movies; playing with her cousins and just hanging out in the old neighborhood. One summer, tragedy struck the family while she was away. Her younger sister, Kathy, was with some I ts Country Under the Sun on Aug. 18 from 5 until 9 p.m. with entertainment by the wild and witty Kenny Jackson. Put on your comfortable blue jeans, favorite western shirt and grab your cowboy hat then come on down to the clubhouse. Kennys music will have you up dancing; singing and tapping your toes to his country beat. Enjoy a pulled pork sandwich with all the fixings; iced tea or lemonade (artificially sweetened) and dessert. Of course youre welcome to bring your own beverages. All of the 100 Days of Summer events are free to Cherrywood residents thanks to the generosity of Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management but tickets are definitely required. See Geri for your tickets and if you have a guest, the tickets are $12 per person and Geri can fix you up with those also. The ticket count helps our Social Committee know how many to plan for but more importantly, they enter you into the door prize drawing. For this event our door prize is a gift certificate to Outback Steak House. Naturally there will be 50/50 drawings with the proceeds going to Hospice. The doors open at 5 p.m. so come early and get your seats with friends and family and prepare for a fantastic night of down home Country.Norm Pellerin 9-Ball Pool TournamentA week-end of challenging fun is scheduled for Aug. 20 and 21 in the poolroom of the clubhouse. Its the annual Norm Pellerin 9-Ball Tournament where competition and good times roll faster than the balls on the tables. Players of all levels are invited to participate so come to the poolroom and sign up before Aug. 15. Thats the cut off date for entrants and is also the day that players meet for their briefing on the rules; order of play and procedures. The meeting starts promptly at 10 a.m. On Friday, Aug. 17, a complete schedule of the players and assigned times will be posted in the poolroom to help players make out their schedules. For more information or questions call Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208. Ladies Travel BilliardsThe 2012-2013 Schedule for our Ladies Traveling Pool Team is now posted in the poolroom. The league has recently expanded so our ladies will be playing 3 times each month instead of just twice. Because of this, we need more ladies to come out and join us so call team Captain, Ruth Hurley at 352-873-7208. Anyone interested in learning to play pool should also contact Ruth. There are many opportunities to learn the game and to play for just plain fun. Wednesday afternoons from 1 until 3 p.m. for example, there is co-ed pool at the clubhouse. This is a great place to learn; to enjoy the game and to relax among friends. Call Ruth for more information about the travel team and learning or just playing the challenging game of pool. Veterans Club new committeeThere are many reasons for joining the Cherrywood Veterans Club and Ruth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling just gave everyone another; i.e. a Memorial Committee. When a veteran or their spouse passes away, often a reception is held in our clubhouse following the funeral. Our new committee will help support the family of that individual by assisting with everything from set up to clean up. In addition, the committee will ensure that the name of the veteran is added to the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. There is a need for more members of this committee so if you are willing to help, please contact Eve, Ruth or your humble correspondent. Veterans Club members are encouraged to respond as this is just another way for veterans to help veterans.

He managed to outdo himself with the questions this month driving the record number of participants to distraction. The Jets took first place while the Palm Trees and The A-Team split the second place prize money. This is the second month in a row that the Jets have come out on top so a hearty congratulations guys and gals Nearly 40 residents showed up for this months event and many of our newcomers to Cherrywood were in attendance to enjoy the friendly competition. After the quiz portion of the game, there was a lot of forehead slaps as Fred read out the answers. One of the cool things about Trivia is not just what you know but what you learn. Next month, August, there will be no Trivia as the staff needs a month off to regroup and take some much deserved vacation time. Rest assured that come September, however, they will be back; eager to challenge the contestants with more Trivia.

Because of this, we need more ladies to come out and join us so call team Captain, Ruth Hurley at 352-873-7208. Anyone interested in learning to play pool should also contact Ruth. There are many opportunities to learn the game and to play for just plain fun. Wednesday afternoons from 1 until 3 p.m. for example, there is co-ed pool at the clubhouse. This is a great place to learn; to enjoy the game and to relax among friends. Call Ruth for more information about the travel team and learning or just playing the challenging game of pool. Veterans Club new committeeThere are many reasons for joining the Cherrywood Veterans Club and Ruth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling just gave everyone another; i.e. a Memorial Committee. When a veteran or their spouse passes away, often a reception is held in our clubhouse following the funeral. Our new committee will help support the family of that individual by assisting with everything from set up to clean up. In addition, the committee will ensure that the name of the veteran is added to the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. There is a need for more members of this committee so if you are willing to help, please contact Eve, Ruth or your humble correspondent. Veterans Club members are encouraged to respond as this is just another way for veterans to help veterans.

He managed to outdo himself with the questions this month driving the record number of participants to distraction. The Jets took first place while the Palm Trees and The A-Team split the second place prize money. This is the second month in a row that the Jets have come out on top so a hearty congratulations guys and gals Nearly 40 residents showed up for this months event and many of our newcomers to Cherrywood were in attendance to enjoy the friendly competition. After the quiz portion of the game, there was a lot of forehead slaps as Fred read out the answers. One of the cool things about Trivia is not just what you know but what you learn. Next month, August, there will be no Trivia as the staff needs a month off to regroup and take some much deserved vacation time. Rest assured that come September, however, they will be back; eager to challenge the contestants with more Trivia.

While many may think of potpourri as only a mixture of fragrant plant material, it is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. So, here comes such a collection that doesnt smell too badly, I hope.What so ever ye sow, that shall ye also reapThe family and estate of Cyrus McCormick, the inventor of the reaping machine, funded a school in Chicago for training ministers. Obviously one area of study was counseling and consoling the sick and dying, and bringing healing to grieving survivors. Of course, at McCormick no one ever referred to Death as the Grim Reaper; students and faculty obviously called it the International Harvester.Bank for all sizesThe bank had been robbed. A very short person had brought in a crystal ball on a pillow and declared, This crystal ball is really a bomb. Give me all the money in the bank, or be utterly destroyed. Not having been assailed with a crystal ball before, the tellers were dumb founded and reluctantly complied. The short person left with all the money. Interviewing the bank president, the police asked, Describe the perpetrator. The bank president replied, Upon reflection I would say you are looking for a small medium at large. Sleepless in Settle As they were leaving church one Sunday, a man confided to his friend that he was suffering from insomnia. The friend asserted that he had no trouble getting to sleep. Really. the first man inquired. Do you count sheep? No, was the retort. I talk to the shepherd. Think The man complained that every time he put on his hat he heard music. The doctor fixed him up. He removed his hatband. My electricity went out and I felt powerless to do anything about it. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, You stay here; Ill go on a head. I used to be a tap dancer until I fell in the sink. The watchmaker is always so tired because he works around the clock. My cat got stolen. I think she was taken by a purr snatcher. Bob the plumber is really sweet on this girl, Celine, who comes from a really poor family. So he put in a Poor Celine Throne for her. The circus fired their accountant for juggling the books. My wife really likes to make pottery, but to me its just kiln time. Did you ever notice, the Roman Numerals for forty are XL? Waiter: There hasnt been much stirring around this restaurant. Diner: Why not? Waiter: Somebody stole all the spoons. Motion promotionI was in my car driving along, when my boss called. He said, Youve been promoted. I swerved. Then he called a second time, and said, Youve been promoted again. And I swerved again. He called a third time, and said, Youre managing director. And I crashed into a tree. A policeman came up, and asked, What happened to you? I said, I careered off the road. Cool reception An American couple, fond of all aged richly historic England things, decided to retire to London to search for a castle. During their July vacation they bought a wonderful ancient house having a long and noble history. They sold their house in Chicago and in November crossed the pond to retire. To their horror, they found that their new home was abysmally cold. They immediately set about trying to get a central heating system installed. Sadly, contractors told them in a house that old, it simply wasnt feasible. I was afraid it would come down to this, the husband finally said. What, honey? the wife asked. We cant have archaic and heat it, too. Sweet and smellyA man went into a convenience store and picked up a bottle of fruit juice and a packet of sugar. He put the sugar into his pocket, paid for the fruit juice and then left the store. A security man stopped him and said, I saw you pay for the fruit juice but not the packet of sugar. The man replied, No you dont understand I didnt steal the sugar; look at this. He pulled out the bottle of fruit juice and said, look here, it says sugar free.

THE BEGINNERS GOODBYE By Anne Tyler When picking up a Tyler novel, you can anticipate certain thingsa Baltimore setting and quirky, unpredictable characters motivated by either a need for love or for self-discovery. In The Beginners Goodbye the baffling narrative voice belongs to gimpy, geeky thirty-something Aaron Woolcott who because of a childhood virus has lost the use of his right limbs and walks with a cane and a brace. That coupled with an unfortunate stammer made the first woman to show interest in him a candidate for matrimony. Thus, at age 24 he marries Dorothy Rosales, eight years older and 15 inches shorter than he is. They make an odd couple, to be sure, looking more like father and child to those passing by. Even so, they had been married happily, unremarkably for 11 years when Dorothy dies. In Chapter 2 Aaron tells us how it happened. He was home from his publishing job nursing a cold when Dorothy, a radiation oncologist, returns home early from work. She looks for her customary snack of Triscuits but cant find the box. The pair falls into a stupid argument. Then each retreats for solitude she to the sun porch and he to the bedroom. Suddenly he hears an alarming cascade of noises. A tree had fallen on the sun porch injuring his wife fatally. Either trying to resolve old issues or resulting from the intricate byways of human consciousness, Aaron starts seeing dead Dorothys ghost. When a colleague asks him how hes dealing with his grief, Aaron struggles to explain: In a way its like the grief has been covered over with some kind of blanket. Its still there, but the sharpest edges are . muffled sort of. Then every now and then, I lift a corner of the blanket, just to check and whoa! Like a knife! Im not sure that ever will change. Even loyal fans may have trouble thinking of Aaron as only in his thirties. The voice seems to belong to a much older man. And alR emember that Oak Run Travel is a function of ORHA and that trips are for Oak Run residents and their guests. Here are three trips coming up this fall: Due to a typographical error there has been some confusion about the date for The Sound of Music at The Show Palace in Hudson, Florida. The correct date is Sunday, Oct. 7. So, with the correct date now known, be sure to call hosts John and Marion Mowen to get your ticket for this classic by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Hear the iconic Climb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi and especially the namesake Sound of Music made famous by Julie Andrews. For $68.50 you get the buffet which starts at 1 p.m., the show starting at 3 p.m. and the bus drivers tip. We are looking forward to Bok Tower Gardens on Saturday, Nov. 10. The bus leaves at 1 p.m. from Oak Run at a cost of $55 per person with a box lunch and bus drivers tip included. The box lunch has the option of a tropical salad, a turkey and swiss sandwich or a vegetarian soup. You go on a tour of the beautiful grounds followed by reserved seats to hear the Orlando Civic Orchestra play at their annual outdoor concert. Call Jack and Eleanor Foggan, your hosts. A couple is driving around France on their vacation. Stanly and Brenda consider themselves lucky when they find a hotel at a stop in a small village. In A Bed Full of Foreignersthe fun begins when, only a couple of hours into the night, seductions and confrontations run rampant as almost everybody in the hotel winds up in the wrong bed. Join Paul and Emily Pike, your hosts, in discovering the reasons for the hijinks and miscues as Stanly and Brenda wish they had found a quiet seaside resort. This is our annual Thanksgiving Day trip which falls on Nov. 22 this year. The bus leaves at 8:30 a.m. and the buffet at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre begins at 11 a.m. The show follows at 1 p.m. You get a great show and a wonderful buffet plus the bus drivers tip for only $58 per person.

The show will be on stage at the Palm Grove Club on Oct. 12, 13 and 14. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, July 17, we played Aces Wild. For every hole that the player had no putt or only one putt, she deducted 1 stroke from her total net score. We started play during a sun shower but we were able to play all 18 holes before the heavier rain came in the afternoon. We do have several lakes in the DRAs on the course from the recent heavy rain but all in all our course drains very well and the ground crew keeps it in wonderful shape. The winners were: First Flight 1st place, Sylvia Zappia, 2nd place tie, Pat Blackburn and Carol Allison; Second Flight 1st place tie, Lynn Houghton and Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st place, Mary Kay Frandsen, 2nd place tie, Inge Szabo and Ilene Simnowitz. Jan Tennant was Closest to the Pin. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn July 19 we played low net with full handicap. We started out in the rain, then it cleared up as we got a few holes in. Elsa Berbig came in 1st Ilene Simnowitz 2nd and tied in 3r. Patty Waddell and BJ Lassiter. IIene Simnowitz had a chip in on hole #5 and Cindy Kocher had a chip in on hole #11. Patty Waddell was closest to pin on #16. We are so glad Patty Waddell is back with us now,we have missed her for several months. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game for July 20 was three best net. There were 35 players who participated, and the scores reflected the impact of the hot weather. The winner with a score of 197 was the team of Dick Blackburn, Bruce Stover, Mike Madill, and Larry Soine. Second with a 198 was the team of Ron Catapano, Al Prachel, Virgil Hein, and Joe Paller. Tied for third with 199 were the teams of Al Millett, Bill Staiger, Ed Simnowitz, and Steve Szabo; and Emmett Dowling, Sam Owens, Dick Rizzo, and Duke Slayton. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Virgil Hein, and Ed Simnowitz.

Ocala Health System and Walgreens have teamed up again on a new program which provides the delivery of medications to hospitalized patients prior to discharge. The program eases patients transition from hospital to home, eliminating the need to stop at a pharmacy along the way and offering a personal consultation with a Walgreens pharmacy staff member. Launched earlier this month at Ocala Regional, the program was implemented at West Marion Community Hospital in March 2012 and has grown to be a popular patient service. Prior to discharge, patients have the option to have their prescription(s) delivered to their bedside by a Walgreens pharmacy technician. Walgreens completes the request for any necessary insurance authorizations, fills the prescription(s), and delivers the prescriptions(s) directly to the patients hospital room. The service also includes a personal consultation between the patient and pharmacist to help aid with patient understanding of the medication therapy. A Walgreens pharmacist will also follow-up with patients within 48 hours after discharge to answer any questions or address any concerns. Other benefits to patients include: a free patient hotline for medication consultation with a pharmacist and refill reminders for patients with chronic conditions such as cancer, organ transplant, and HIV. We are pleased to provide this important health care service to our patients and their caregivers. said JoAnn Ankoviak, chief nursing officer, Ocala Regional Medical Center. In addition to providing convenience, our goal is to empower our patients with the education necessary to ensure the ordered prescriptions are taken in the correct dosage at the correct time. Ocala Health System (OHS) encompasses Ocala Regional Medical Center, a 200-bed facility located in the heart of Ocala, and West Marion Community Hospital, a 70-bed hospital located in West Marion County. OHS has the only Commission on Cancer approved cancer center in Marion County and is directly affiliated with the Moffitt Cancer Center. The hospitals offer a host of other quality and award winning services including bariatric surgery, orthopedic care and joint replacement, robotic surgery, cardiac and vascular services including open heart surgery and interventional procedures, emergency, neurological and rehabilitation services.

I just celebrated another birthday, which got me to thinking about the good old days. You can usually tell how old a person is by how many times they refer to the good old days, or the phrase, when I was a youngster. I have come to the conclusion that getting old is not something to be ashamed of in the least. A person reaches a certain age simply because they have not died yet, which is nothing to make a person feel guilty. Although I do not think too much of birthdays, I intend to have as many as possible. Dont get me wrong. I am ready to go when my time is up, but, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy life. My recent birthday got me thinking about the good old days of my youth. Memory is a funny thing. For the most part, we remember the good of our youth and rarely the bad. I often hear some old geezer say, I wish I were 16 again. If their memory was serving them correctly, 16 was not a very good year for any of us. I am glad I have gotten beyond my 16th birthday. As I remember it, it was a terrible year. I can honestly say that the best years of my life are the ones I am living now. Sure, I have some regrets. I have done things I probably should not have done, and I did not do some things I probably should have. If I had to live my life over again not only will I make the same mistakes but also I probably would add to the list quite significantly. I do not want to live my life over again. Once is enough for me, thank you. But as I was thinking of those good old days, I could not help but think what I was thinking about back then. It went something like this. When I was in school sitting in Ms. Ammons class, I was daydreaming about going fishing. All I could think about was what kind of fish were biting out by the lake this afternoon. Ms. Ammon would call upon me and I would have no idea what she was talking about. In my mind, I was fishing. In my body, I was suffering under classititis. It is what students, especially boys, get when they are bored with the class they are in at the time. It involves a lot of jittering. Where was your mind? Ms. Ammon would ask. I hope you werent fishing, now, were you? One thing about good ole Ms. Ammon, she could read a boys mind like a book. Maybe because there are so many blank pages in a young boys mind. I would suffer through counting down the hours and minutes and seconds until the school day would end. You did not hear it from me, and this is not a confession, but on those rare occasions when I would skip school and go fishing, I had another problem. I was where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, but then as I threw out the line waiting for a bite all I could think of was what was happening back in school I was missing. I often wondered if Ms. Ammon was missing me. I would smile and then the fish would bite and my attention would be on the task at hand. It was not long before my mind would wander back to the classroom. What were they doing? What was I missing? For the life of me, I cannot understand why, but I could never enjoy fishing when I was playing hooky from school for thinking about what I was missing back in school. One of the advantages of getting older is developing a sense of maturity. Dont ask me to define maturity, because I am not quite sure what it really means. As a person matures, he begins to learn how to enjoy the moment. This, I say, comes with age. A lot of age in some instances. By the time you learn to enjoy the moment, it is gone. I have come a long way from good ole Ms. Ammons classroom. I will not tell you how many years it has been, lets just say a lot. I still find myself doing the same thing. I am in the middle of doing one thing and I begin thinking of what I could be doing. I could be home reading a book. Then when I go home and begin reading, I think about what I could be doing in the office. I have tried to take a day off for many years. I just cannot seem to manage it. I take a day off and think of what I really could be doing if I was working. When I am working, I think of how much fun I could have if I was taking the day off. I hope to live long enough to be able to bring these two opposites together in some magnificent activity. I have not got there yet. I am aspiring, to be sure. David was right. This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 118:24 KJV). The only thing I need to do today is to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord. Rev. James L.

friends watching the local fire department put out a grass fire. Kathy was seated on the back stoop of the fire engine along with the other children. A young man was speeding down the road and had an epileptic seizure. He lost control of his vehicle and it slammed into the back of the fire truck. Sadly, Peggys sister died from her injuries. That tragic loss is something that neither Peggy nor her family ever really got over. After graduating from Mount Saint Mary High School, Peggy worked for New York Telephone as a switchboard operator. After six months of doing that, Peggy became the fourth generation of her family to work for Western Electric. For the next five years she worked for that company building her skills and receiving training in a diverse number of assignments. Among her duties, she took acting lessons and performed as a Can Can Dancer; a clown and at Christmas, she was an elf. It was at Western Electric that she met her husband Joe who worked for her Dad. Joe and Peggy married and had three children. During those early years, the federal government broke up the major telephone companies and so Joe was transferred to Georgia. Peggy, now a stay at home Mom moved with him. She remained a housewife and Mom until her youngest was 12 years old. With her past experience and well documented work ethic, Peggy was hired on at American Telephone & Telegraph. She was placed in the front office as an executive secretary. At around the same time, her marriage of 21 years came to an end and she and Joe divorced. Her youngest child, daughter Kelley, was 14 at the time. Peggy discounts the burden of being a single mom saying that she and her three children got along very well. In spite of the pain that these memories bring, she still manages a smile reflecting a mothers pride and love. Peggys energy level and need for change didnt allow her to stay saddled to a desk for very long. An opportunity opened for her to get out into the field and make not only more money, but to seek new experiences. She managed to work in the new Cable Installation Department; Production Division and even drove a fork lift. The question begged so I asked it, Did you ever drop the cargo off your fork lift? She laughed and answered, Everyone does that at least once. Its interesting to see the spools of cable go rolling around the floor. With 25 years of service to the company, Peggy retired. Her father was ill and living in Homosassa Springs with his second wife. In order to help care for him, Peggy moved down to Florida but shortly after her arrival, he was hospitalized. A few weeks later, he passed away. Because of her friends here in Cherrywood, Peggy bought a house and moved into our community. That was eight years ago. She manages to stay close with her three children. Joe Junior is a Senior Master Sergeant in the Air Force with tours in the Gulf War and Panama. Hes stationed at Dobbins AFB as an instructor. Kathy her oldest daughter lives in Loganville, Georgia, with her husband and five children. Kelley, her youngest, is a working Mom who resides in Dawsonville, Georgia, with her son. In total, Peggy has 10 grandchildren Antiquing furniture; pool; swimming; bocce ball; 100 days of Summer; Veterans Club and most of the other events here at Cherrywood are just a few of the hobbies and activities that Peggy enjoys. Speaking of hobbies, a little know fact about Peggy is that shes a car bug. She worked on and raced cars at the Kayuga Race Track and at various private air strips near Erie. She has a great mechanical ability with engines and did much of the prep work for other drivers. Peggys abilities and efficiency was exemplified as recently as the 7th of July. Peggy was in charge of the servers for the Veterans Appreciation Dinner and under her supervision, with the assistance of hostess Eve Houghtaling, over 120 people were served in less than half an hour. That was quite an accomplishment and a testament to her leadership skills. Among her many other qualities Peggy is a devoted and loyal friend. When needed, she is always there with a caring heart; a quick and easy smile; and compassionate encouragement. Far from a boring life, Peggy has lived through tragedy and hardships with enthusiasm; vitality and a sincere love of people. We at Cherrywood are grateful to Peggy for contributing to our quality of life and for brightening and enriching our community.Contact the writer aturperssec@yahoo.com Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Politics should be simplePolitics should be a relatively simple process: we, the people express our wishes, our politicians listen to our needs, and vote them accordingly in Congress. Now, this may seem to some a simplistic view, but politics shouldnt be much more difficult than that. When the trappings of the political parties making up our republic are stripped away, two things remain: freedom and we, the people. Defending these two should be the principal goal of any administration. If our freedom is being compromised, we must ask ourselves as Abraham Lincoln quoted: Is this a ... government of the people, by the people, for the people ...? If our government disregards our wishes as has been done many times by this administration, if it does things that are not in the best interest of the American people or our Constitution and ignores things that are the answer will be a resounding no. If that is the case, we need a new administration; the one we have now isnt working for the good of all Americans or for our Republic. Joe OHara Ocala The race cardDont be surprised over the far left playing the race card on the House of Representatives voting Atty. Gen. (AG) Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. They say that the GOP is persecuting Holder because hes Americas first black AG. This has been the lefts strategy for at least 60 years ignore the facts and cry racism. In the early 1950s, when Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (both Jews) were convicted of and executed for espionage, the left claimed they were victims of religious bigotry and other government racist attitudes. They ignored the fact that the presiding judge, two prosecutors, and at least 15 members of the original jury pool were Jewish. In 1996, after analyzing the declassified Verona Cables, liberal (and Jewish) Washington Post writer Nicholas von Hoffman concluded that the Rosenbergs were in fact guilty. Al Shumard Pine RunMedal of Honor The service members who I have always held the highest regards for are the recipients of the countrys highest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. As far as I am concerned, a person cannot receive a higher award. The Purple Heart ranks almost as high. Our Supreme Court has belittled all military awards. It used to be against the law to falsely claim ownership of these prestigious awards. Now they have made it possible and lawful for anyone to falsely claim to be a recipient of any military award. They claim it is freedom of speech for a person to lie about such an important achievement. I have lost all respect for the nine members of our highest court. Richard D.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Property Tax ReferendumsThis is in response to the Letter to the Editor in the South Marion Citizen July 20 edition in which the writer railed against the upcoming referendums to increase property taxes to support Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) and Marion County Public Schools (MCPS). His preference was for sales taxes to be increased rather than property taxes and he blamed the Board of County Commissioners for proposing the property tax increases rather than sales tax increases. His anger is misplaced as the commissioners have no input in either the MCPS or the MRMC tax proposals. The resolutions for MCPSs two referendums that will appear on the Aug. 14 ballot were presented at the commissioners May 1 meeting. To quote the county attorney: Section 1011.73, Fla. Stat. (2011), subsection (2) authorizes the district school board, pursuant to resolution, to direct the county commissioners to call an election at which the electors within the school district may approve an ad valorem tax millage as authorized under Section 1011.71(9), Fla. Stat. (2011). He went on to explain that the commissioners simply act as a conduit and cannot refuse to pass MCPSs resolutions on to the Supervisor of Elections although all five commissioners objected to them. Video available at: http://sire.marioncountyfl.org/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?mee tid660&doctypeSUMMARY (The discussion lasts about 15 minutes and starts at 01:23:45.) The people responsible for putting these two property tax referendums on the ballot are school board members Angie Boynton, Bobby James, Judi Zanetti and Ron Crawford. The resolution for MRMCs referendum that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot has not been presented to the County Commission yet but again the commissioners will have no legal alternative but to agree to pass it on to the Supervisor of Elections. The people responsible for putting MRMCs referendum on the ballot are hospital district trustees Dr. Mike Jordan, Dr. Ravi Chandra, Dr. Srisha Rao, Kulbir Gumman, and Jon Kurtz. In the trustee meeting discussion regarding sales tax support for MRMC, it was stated that the tax would yield about $14 million per year but it would have to be shared with all the indigent care providers in Marion County. MRMCs administrators estimated that MRMC provides about 40 percent of indigent care and therefore the hospitals share would only be about $5.9 million per year. (This is in sharp contrast to the propaganda in which it is implied that MRMC is the only provider of indigent care in Marion County.) The sales tax option was rejected as being insufficient. Sales tax support of MRMC would be fairer than property tax but neither tax will solve their financial problems. Consider the fact that MRMC has written off $18 million of charity care (those making less than 200 percent of the poverty level) and $37 million of other bad debt in the first eight months of this fiscal year. At this rate they will have written off a total of $83 million, including $27 million of charity care, by the end of the fiscal year. At least with a sales tax the people who receive this $83 million of free healthcare would have to contribute a little bit toward the cost of it. Carl Crabtree Ocala Romney and financesAttention all Tea Party people. Do you think that Mitt Romney is taxed enough? Do you have accounts in tax shelters in Switzerland? Or the Cayman Islands? How does it feel to find out that most of us are in a higher tax bracket than Romney. What a great country. We also now find that Romney avoided the draft during the Vietnam era. He sought and got a deferment to become a missionary. Did he go to Africa, Haiti or some other impoverished country in South American? Are you kidding? After all, he is a conservative. He got a deferment, became a missionary, goes where he wants to preach. He went to Paris, France. This guy is all heart. His equity trust company, Bain Capital, looted and tore apart American companies, bankrupted them and sold off their assets. Now you know why he wanted General Motors and Chrysler to go belly up. Bain Capital cost thousands of Americans to lose their jobs. And guess what, most equity companies fall into the 15 percent tax bracket. Whats yours? He has five sons. Have any of them served in the military? Im guessing that none have. They fall into the 1 percent who dont need the bonuses that our government uses to get most of the low-income people to enlist in the armed forces. Cut out the bonuses and you will see the volunteer army slowly disappear. Maybe then, they will bring back the draft and make it everybodys duty to support their country. Why does it seem that all of these conservative, patriotic Republicans all avoided the draft? Here are some of them: Pat Buchanan, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove and best of all, Rush Limbaugh. In closing, Mitt Romney made that famous statement, I quote, I love to fire people. We should pick up that quote and fire him. Also, why wont Romney release his tax returns besides the one he grudgingly was forced to do. He was in the 12 percent tax bracket. Is it because hes over taxed or he hasnt paid taxes in all of those years. Just wondering. William Yakush Ocala School taxesAfter reading a recent letter about the school tax increase request, I started wondering about the cost of education and what share my husband and I have paid through the years. Weve been home owners for 50 years and we both had 12 years of public education. If we consider it at todays prices of over $5,000 per student per year and probably an average of $1,000 of our real estate taxes going toward education each of those years, were still behind about 70 years worth of taxes. That makes public education seem like quite a bargain to me. Ill continue to support our local schools and their need for tax increases. These children are the people who will be working in my doctors offices, my bank, my drug store, etc. in just a few years. I want them to receive the best education they can get so that they can be good at what they do in the future. My home value may not depend on local school quality any more since I live in one of our 55+ communities but my quality of life will be helped by having well educated people serving me. Everybody pays property taxes in some form or other. Some of us pay the actual bill; others pay in increased costs for rent and/or services, even the cost of groceries, gas, etc. include a portion for taxes to cover the building involved. Im a member of the retiree peer group and I support the school tax increase and so do many of my friends. Mary Bohn On Top of the WorldQuarterly honor rollA thank you to the organizers and all who participated in the Quarterly Honor Roll at Veterans Park. The great ceremony honored veterans who had died in the previous three months. My husband, Paul R. Millett, U.S. Army, was among the many veterans honored. He was one of only six in his 168th Engineer Combat Battalion who escaped capture or death during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. It was truly an honor to attend the ceremony in his memory. God bless you all. Avis R.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com A ll the power players have reported in about the sexabuse scandal at Penn State. Jerry Sandusky, the perpetrator, has been convicted on 45 counts of molesting young boys. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh has filed his investigation report with the colleges Board of Trustees, saying that for 10 years senior officials of Penn State ignored their obligations to the student body and betrayed the reputation of the university. The Trustees have removed the imposing statue of former football coach Joe Paterno, the man to whom they and the administrators, faculty, and alumni paid homage for decades. For a while at least, there will be no genuflecting to the statue of saint JoePa. Lastly, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has passed judgment on Penn State by expunging from its records all football games in the years 1998 through 2011 the years of the predator. In addition, the university was fined $60 million and banned from post-season bowl games for four years. The number of authorized football scholarships has been reduced from 25 to 15. The school was spared the death penalty of a few years of no football. In 1938, Robert Maynard Hutchins, president of the University of Chicago contributed an article to the Saturday Evening Post magazine about a long-running college football controversy. The title was Gate Receipts and Glory. He began by saying The end of football season is about to release the nations colleges to the pursuit of education. The last nickel will be rung up at the gate; the last halfback will receive his check; and the last alumnus will try to pay off the bets he can recall. Hutchins said college athleticism had become a perversion of amateur athletics. He said athleticism was commercial promotion of college football for the entertainment of the public and enrichment of the universities. University budgets became more and more dependent on football receipts. Larger stadiums were built. Athletes were treated as professionals. The campus clich was that courses on earth science (rocks for jocks) were designed to guarantee football players eligibility to play. Hutchins vocal opponents included sports writers, alumni, professors, trustees, and students. College football had a significant public following long before television. Some fanatical supporters believed football was a patriotic defense against communism. Albert Lasker, a wealthy Chicago trustee and leader of the opposition to Hutchins, maintained that Football is what unifies a university. What would take its place? Hutchins response was education. Hutchins won a small and temporary victory when he eliminated varsity football at Chicago, but he lost the national argument against professionalism to alumni, barbers, hot dog vendors, and bookies, all of whom lived for the kickoff of college football season. Was the Penn State sex scandal inevitable? Since 1938 and before, trustees, administrators, athletes, alumni, and sports fans have been aware of the culture of cover-up which guards the public respectability of semi-professional college football and assures a continuing flow of gate receipts and glory. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 T ake a moment to look in your closet and check the label on your clothes. Look to see where your clothing was manufactured. If youre like a lot of us, its something you havent done before. And chances are, your clothes werent made in the U.S. Apparently, the U.S. Olympic Committee doesnt check the labels, either. There was a big stink raised last week when it was discovered that the Olympic team was wearing clothing that was made in China. Some people were quick to jump on the U.S. Olympic Committee for making this choice. Olympic officials scoffed at the complaints. The clothing, they say, came from an American company, Ralph Lauren, which supports American athletes. The opening and closing ceremony clothes and casual clothes to be worn during the Olympics are all being supplied by Ralph Lauren. Committee officials also pointed out that the Olympics are privately funded, not run by the government as they are in many other countries. In other words, we have to save money. Congress reacted negatively immediately. Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat, said the clothes should be put in a big pile and burned. Rep. John Boehner, a Republican, said that the Olympic Committee should know better. But lets face it. This is just a result of a major problem with America. While our textile industry suffers, people like the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are providing products that meet the needs of the American people. Americans tend to buy things that look good, are durable and are not overly expensive. When the U.S. starts producing items equal with those standards, the tide will turn toward buying American goods. I laugh when I read complaints that one of the presidential candidates led the way in outsourcing jobs to other countries. People who say that know nothing of history. This is nothing new. I remember when my children were young, they used to praise the electronics they had from Sony. To them, that was the best electronic company there was. At their age, they didnt care about jobs or factories or workers or things like that. All they knew is when they turned on a Walkman, it worked perfectly. The foreign invasion of goods extends to almost all walks of life, to all types of products, and has for some time. And were all probably guilty of buying items that were made elsewhere. Sometimes, you cant get stuff made in America. So before we look negatively at the Olympic officials, lets try to fix the problem in America. Lets bring jobs back to our country. Some of it has already been done. Some people drive foreign cars, but they were made at assembly lines here in the U.S. That can be done with a bunch of other products. And lets send some Olympic clothing to the Chinese. Maybe their athletes will wear items that are made in the U.S., and we can cancel each other out.

T he National Collegiate Athletic Association has come down hard on Penn State, with multi-million dollar fines, bowl bans, scholarship limits and vacated victories. The question is, who suffers the most? Joe Paterno? Maybe his family is bothered by the statements against the legendary coach, but after all, you cant slander or libel the dead. A persons reputation dies with him. Were sure Joe isnt sitting there listening to all this, either. Jerry Sandusky? Actually, hes been convicted. He probably doesnt care about the Penn State scholarships or other sanctions. Hes probably more worried about some of the guys in the yard getting him alone. Were sure theyre not all Nittany Lions fans. The other men who have been charged with perjury? They have legal problems of their own and probably dont care what the NCAA does to Penn State. The former president and other officials, who are gone but so far face no charges? They just want to get away from there as far as possible. So who does that leave? The new coach and the players, who evidently had nothing to do with all of this, and the current students of the university who dont happen to be football players but will forever be linked to the scandal. In other words, the innocent parties. Of course, those who are suffering the most are the abuse victims, and that should never be pushed aside for football. Everyone is hoping that the scars will heal for these young men. Anyone who takes a woe is me attitude just has to read the grand jury report, realize what these victims went through, and then apologize for worrying more about themselves than the boys. But the other ones we feel sorry for are the innocent players. They are suddenly facing a bleak future at Penn State. The NCAA said they could transfer without penalty, and it might even allow schools that accept Penn State players to exceed the scholarship limit for this year. Among those stars, there are probably a few who have pro football abilities and aspirations. They wont have any problem finding a new school. But what about the borderline players, particularly the seniors, the ones who needed good exposure this season to possibly get drafted. This could be a career-ender for some of them. The players who stay will undoubtedly be outmanned in some, if not all, of their contests, especially if a lot of players leave. Of course, it could work the other way, and if most of the players stay, as the new coach says they will, the team could have something to prove by winning, even if it isnt eligible for a conference title or a bowl game. Theyll get a fond greeting at home, but can you imagine what theyll hear from some of the insensitive fans on the road? One sanction that was not imposed was a TV ban. Naturally, we can see some of the greedy networks scrambling to show Penn State games this fall, expecting high ratings, even if the games arent good. That exposure is good for the players who remain. But as is usually the case, when one public person does something offensive, it has a ripple effect through society in his area. Thats true for Jerry Sandusky. And while Paterno may be guilty of failing to act, the major responsibility for all these problems falls on Sandusky. Hes the guilty one that is being punished, and we hope that the residual effects arent too harsh on those left behind.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Newborn babies saving peoples lives was the goal back in 1998 when LifeCord got its start as the first public umbilical cord blood bank in the Southeast, and today that hope stretches clear around the globe. LifeCord, which is a program of LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, collects umbilical cord blood donations from eight hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. We are zeroing in on 100. We recently shipped out our 97th cord blood unit for transplant, and so far LifeCord babies have helped patients in 23 states and nine foreign countries, said LifeCord Cellular Therapy Manager Amy Lambert. LifeCord approaches the milestone during July, which is set aside as Cord Blood Awareness Month. Twenty years ago the umbilical cord was considered medical waste. Now, every day somewhere in the world, cord blood is saving lives. Thats because the specialized blood cells found in the cord can be used by patients suffering from leukemia or lymphoma who need marrow transplants. The cord blood acts as a seed to help them grow healthy marrow. It can be stored frozen for nearly 20 years and is already tested, typed and ready for use when it is needed. And the use of cord blood has increased dramatically. According to the National Marrow Donor Program, in 2011 more than 40 percent of transplant patients from racially and ethnically diverse communities received a cord blood transplant. In Florida, babies born at Shands at the University of Florida and North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville, Fla. can donate. There is no charge for donating, and the procedure is simple and safe, said Lambert. Encouraging more parents to donate will further expand the use of cord blood, and more lives will be saved.

Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office.

The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism.

Be patient and considerate. The confusion soon will sort itself out. TA U R U S ( April 20 to M ay 20) Its a good time for travel-loving Taureans to take off for fun-filled jaunts to new places. And dont be surprised if Cupid tags along for what could be a very eventful trip. GE MINI (M ay 21 to June 20) You appear to be of two minds about continuing a relationship that seems to be riding roughshod over your emotions. A frank talk could help you decide one way or the other. CA N CER ( June 21 to July 22) Stepping back from a relationship problem provides a new perspective on how to deal with it. Meanwhile, watch your words. Something said in anger now could backfire later. LE O ( July 23 to Aug 22) A changing situation makes the Big Cat uneasy. But hold on until things settle down around the 4th. Meanwhile, continue your good work on that still unfinished project. VI RG O ( Aug 23 to Sept 22) A decided improvement in a workplace situation results in an unexpected, but very welcome, added benefit for everyone. Personal relationships also improve. L IB RA ( Sept 23 to O ct 22) Money matters remain a bit unsettled but soon will ease into the kind of stability you appreciate. Meanwhile, an expanding social life offers a chance to make new friends. SC O R PIO (O ct 23 to N o v. 21) Use an unexpected roadblock in your monetary dealings to reassess your financial plans and make changes, if necessary. It soon will be smooth sailing again. SAG I TTAR IU S (N o v. 22 to D ec 21) Aspects of love are strong for both single and paired Sagittarians. Professional dealings also thrive under the Sags clever handling of difficult situations. CA P R I C O R N (D ec 22 to Jan 19) Set a realistic goal and follow it through to completion. Remember: Youre more likely to impress the right people with one well-done job than with lots of jobs left undone. A QU AR IU S ( Jan 20 to Feb 18) You like to plan ahead. Thats fine. But be prepared to make some changes because of an unsettled period that influences your aspects through the 4th. PI SCES ( Feb 19 to M arch 20) A brief phase of instability affects your usual work cycle. Use the time to catch up on chores around the house or office. Things settle down soon after the 4th.

We think it met a real need for local students interested in technology, said Dr. Row Rogacki, IHMC Associate Director. Were already planning next years sessions. The camp focused on the STEM curriculum: science, technology, engineering and math. Campers worked on robot assembly and testing, which included setting goals for their creations (such as programming a robot to navigate a maze without hitting a wall), and using science and math to reach them. The sessions were made possible through the generosity of numerous sponsors and local business partners and organizations. The sponsors enabled 62 local students to advance their understanding of robotics through hands-on experience under the guidance of expert instruction. The lead agency in bringing the camp to Ocala was the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE), a National Science FoundationATE Regional Center of Excellence. FLATE has helped offer summer robotics camps for more than six years in communities across Florida. The camps have grown in popularity, size and complexity through partnering with organizations such as IHMC. FLATE and its executive director, Dr. Marilyn Barger, helped integrate the Robotics Camp with Ocala IHMCs educational outreach efforts. The College of Central Florida provided the camps Lego MindstormTM robots, and Workforce Connection provided laptop computers to create a hands-on learning environment where technology was the star. Campers also visited the Lockheed Martin Ocala Plant to gain perspective on how the miniature robotics system they worked with translates into the real world. The camp instructor, nationally recognized teacher Dr. Gregory Cruz, and his top assistant, Florida Tech graduate engineering student Kyle Fontaine, were critical to the campers progress, as were local high school volunteers who encouraged, guided and applauded the campers efforts. Mackenzie Meiers, a rising fifth-grade camper, summed it up best in her thank you note to the sponsors: This camp was a once-in-a-lifetime week of learning, building and excitement! It has been the thrill of my summer. The Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) is one of the nations premier research organizations with world-class scientists and engineers investigating a broad range of topics related to building technological systems aimed at amplifying and extending human cognitive and perceptual capacities. IHMC headquarters are in Pensacola, Florida and a branch research facility has recently opened in Ocala. Middle schoolers enjoy robotics program Amberjack season to open in GulfGreater amberjack will open for recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. The season closes annually June 1. The minimum size limit for greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico waters is 30 inches fork length, which is measured from the tip of the fishs closed mouth to the center of the fork in the tail. In Atlantic state waters, the size limit is 28 inches fork length. Recreational anglers may take one fish per person, per day. Reef fish gear rules apply when fishing for greater amberjack. In Gulf waters, this means anglers must use circle hooks and have a dehooking device and a venting tool on their vessel. Using these tools will help increase a fishs chance of survival if it is caught and returned to the water. State waters in the Gulf extend from shore to nine nautical miles and in the Atlantic from shore to three nautical miles; federal waters extend from those boundaries to about 200 miles from shore.

Speaker will be Frank Bruno, a candidate for Florida Senate. At the June 18 meeting, several events took place. Democrats were made aware that they can vote in the non-partisan primary election on Aug. 14. Democratic candidates and nonpartisan candidates for county court judge, and School Board members will be on the ballot. Paul Guilfoil, candidate for Marion County Court Judge was one of the speakers at this meeting. Guilfoil spoke about his 28 years experience as a practicing lawyer in Marion County. He mentioned that the legal system is underfunded so that instead of having a full complement of five judges there have been only four to deal with the mainly family issues cases that come to Marion County courts. Many of the issues are misdemeanors and the family members are usually seen as having just made a mistake. These kinds of cases require a certain degree of empathy on the part of court officers and Guilfoil pointed out that he understands that the common man who comes to these courts is more in need of rehabilitation than punishment and that is taken into consideration. Another speaker at this June meeting was Burt Stephens from the Senior Learning Institute, College of Central Florida, which has been around since 1992 with a mission to stimulate the brain, provide leisure activities, social interaction and learning opportunities for seniors. Mr. Stephens presentation was interesting and informative as he walked us through snippets of courses in history, science, art, French for Tourists, Basic Spanish, literature, computers, the internet, health and wellness. He won favor by saying there are no examinations (unless you choose to seek credits for a degree) and very little costs for books and materials.

Also at this meeting members of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club congratulated one of their own, Dorrick Nurse, on his upcoming trip to the United States 2012 Democratic National Convention, in which delegates of the Democratic Party will choose the partys nominees for President and Vice President in the 2012 National Election. The convention is scheduled to be held during the week of Sept. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. Lastly, the decision to cancel the dinner dance that was scheduled for June 23 was made by MODC Board because of a lack of support. We hope no one was inconvenienced and we look forward to your support at our next social event. Feel free to contact our President Winsome Stern at 352-3473457 if you have any questions.

The improved bond rating is a result of work from earlier in the year with Clerk of the Court finance staff. Finance and Utilities leaders worked with Moodys Investor Services and Standard and Poors to evaluate its utility bond rating. This led Moodys to upgrade the utility from A1 to Aa3, while Standard and Poors rated the utility a AA-. When granting the upgrade, Moodys cited good management reflected in improved financial performance and ongoing system consolidation. The new rating allowed the county to obtain an even lower interest rate and changed the lifetime loan savings on the $40 million bond to $4.5 million; the bonds will mature in 2033. We are extremely pleased with the results of the bond sale, said Clerk of the Court Finance Director John Garri. The upgrade of our utility rating, coupled with the high demand for our bonds by investors, further reflects the great job our Utility Department is doing. The savings generated from the bond refinancing will save the county an average of $250,000 per year in debt service costs.

Earlier this month, at a State Road 200 Coalition meeting, one had to leave early and the other two didnt attend. The format, however, was not for a debate, and some statements went unchallenged. Butch Verrando, one of the candidates and the only one who lives in District 5, said that he was categorically against receiving grants. He was responding to a question concerning funding for domestic violence, health care, child care, services for the mentally challenged and other social services. Those do not fall in the realm of government, he said, adding that there were churches and charities for those services. He said he wouldnt vote to accept grants except for transportation and utilities. That gets our money back. Then he added, There is nothing in the Constitution that says we have to take care of these people. He said there were exceptional charities in Marion County. Business and jobs drew the most attention. Earl Arnett said that one of the things we need to focus on is to make it easier for companies to settle in Marion County. Pat Gabriel also focused on jobs. We need to be more effective in our marketing, and she reeled off a list of the assets in the county. She added, We need to pay special attention to businesses already here. Verrando later chimed in on the recruiting of businesses with something he has said before. Ultimately the guy who makes the decision is the CEO (of a company, he said. What brings business here is the CEO and his family want to live here. He talked about the parks, and said We waste a lot of money on green stuff. In a final summary he added that he was a Constitutional Conservative. I believe in freedom and liberty, I dont believe in taxes. Francine Johannesen wanted to eliminate waste in government, saying, There are always more ways to get blood out of a turnip. She talked about combining some functions with the city. Also speaking at the forum were candidates Mike Amsden and Stan McClain, both incumbents. Their opponents did not attend.

The utility will begin implementing rate reductions on Oct. 1. County water customers will see a 7 percent reduction in their monthly bills.

The commission is determined to provide financial relief to citizens when opportunities become available, said Marion County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Charlie Stone. Giving these savings back to the public through decreased rates means injecting more disposable income into our community.

Speaker will be Frank Bruno, a candidate for Florida Senate. At the June 18 meeting, several events took place. Democrats were made aware that they can vote in the non-partisan primary election on Aug. 14. Democratic candidates and nonpartisan candidates for county court judge, and School Board members will be on the ballot. Paul Guilfoil, candidate for Marion County Court Judge was one of the speakers at this meeting. Guilfoil spoke about his 28 years experience as a practicing lawyer in Marion County. He mentioned that the legal system is underfunded so that instead of having a full complement of five judges there have been only four to deal with the mainly family issues cases that come to Marion County courts. Many of the issues are misdemeanors and the family members are usually seen as having just made a mistake. These kinds of cases require a certain degree of empathy on the part of court officers and Guilfoil pointed out that he understands that the common man who comes to these courts is more in need of rehabilitation than punishment and that is taken into consideration. Another speaker at this June meeting was Burt Stephens from the Senior Learning Institute, College of Central Florida, which has been around since 1992 with a mission to stimulate the brain, provide leisure activities, social interaction and learning opportunities for seniors. Mr. Stephens presentation was interesting and informative as he walked us through snippets of courses in history, science, art, French for Tourists, Basic Spanish, literature, computers, the internet, health and wellness. He won favor by saying there are no examinations (unless you choose to seek credits for a degree) and very little costs for books and materials. There is an annual membership fee as well as a shorter six month fee if you do not want to commit for an entire year. You can find information at seniorinstitute@cf.edu or (352) 291-4444 and begin to Celebrate Learning. Also at this meeting members of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club congratulated one of their own, Dorrick Nurse, on his upcoming trip to the United States 2012 Democratic National Convention, in which delegates of the Democratic Party will choose the partys nominees for President and Vice President in the 2012 National Election. The convention is scheduled to be held during the week of Sept. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. Lastly, the decision to cancel the dinner dance that was scheduled for June 23 was made by MODC Board because of a lack of support. We hope no one was inconvenienced and we look forward to your support at our next social event.

These efforts, coupled with changes to our operations, have generated considerable savings. The improved bond rating is a result of work from earlier in the year with Clerk of the Court finance staff. Finance and Utilities leaders worked with Moodys Investor Services and Standard and Poors to evaluate its utility bond rating. This led Moodys to upgrade the utility from A1 to Aa3, while Standard and Poors rated the utility a AA-. When granting the upgrade, Moodys cited good management reflected in improved financial performance and ongoing system consolidation. The new rating allowed the county to obtain an even lower interest rate and changed the lifetime loan savings on the $40 million bond to $4.5 million; the bonds will mature in 2033. We are extremely pleased with the results of the bond sale, said Clerk of the Court Finance Director John Garri. The upgrade of our utility rating, coupled with the high demand for our bonds by investors, further reflects the great job our Utility Department is doing. The savings generated from the bond refinancing will save the county an average of $250,000 per year in debt service costs.

We think it met a real need for local students interested in technology, said Dr. Row Rogacki, IHMC Associate Director. Were already planning next years sessions. The camp focused on the STEM curriculum: science, technology, engineering and math. Campers worked on robot assembly and testing, which included setting goals for their creations (such as programming a robot to navigate a maze without hitting a wall), and using science and math to reach them. The sessions were made possible through the generosity of numerous sponsors and local business partners and organizations. The sponsors enabled 62 local students to advance their understanding of robotics through hands-on experience under the guidance of expert instruction. The lead agency in bringing the camp to Ocala was the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE), a National Science FoundationATE Regional Center of Excellence. FLATE has helped offer summer robotics camps for more than six years in communities across Florida. The camps have grown in popularity, size and complexity through partnering with organizations such as IHMC. FLATE and its executive director, Dr. Marilyn Barger, helped integrate the Robotics Camp with Ocala IHMCs educational outreach efforts. The College of Central Florida provided the camps Lego MindstormTM robots, and Workforce Connection provided laptop computers to create a hands-on learning environment where technology was the star. Campers also visited the Lockheed Martin Ocala Plant to gain perspective on how the miniature robotics system they worked with translates into the real world. The camp instructor, nationally recognized teacher Dr. Gregory Cruz, and his top assistant, Florida Tech graduate engineering student Kyle Fontaine, were critical to the campers progress, as were local high school volunteers who encouraged, guided and applauded the campers efforts. Mackenzie Meiers, a rising fifth-grade camper, summed it up best in her thank you note to the sponsors: This camp was a once-in-a-lifetime week of learning, building and excitement! It has been the thrill of my summer. The Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) is one of the nations premier research organizations with world-class scientists and engineers investigating a broad range of topics related to building technological systems aimed at amplifying and extending human cognitive and perceptual capacities. IHMC headquarters are in Pensacola, Florida and a branch research facility has recently opened in Ocala. Middle schoolers enjoy robotics program Amberjack season to open in GulfGreater amberjack will open for recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. The season closes annually June 1. The minimum size limit for greater amberjack in Gulf of Mexico waters is 30 inches fork length, which is measured from the tip of the fishs closed mouth to the center of the fork in the tail. In Atlantic state waters, the size limit is 28 inches fork length. Recreational anglers may take one fish per person, per day. Reef fish gear rules apply when fishing for greater amberjack. In Gulf waters, this means anglers must use circle hooks and have a dehooking device and a venting tool on their vessel. Using these tools will help increase a fishs chance of survival if it is caught and returned to the water. State waters in the Gulf extend from shore to nine nautical miles and in the Atlantic from shore to three nautical miles; federal waters extend from those boundaries to about 200 miles from shore.

Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. Consider this opportunity to learn how to form or join a CERT group in your community by signing up for this no-cost training program.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Newborn babies saving peoples lives was the goal back in 1998 when LifeCord got its start as the first public umbilical cord blood bank in the Southeast, and today that hope stretches clear around the globe. LifeCord, which is a program of LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, collects umbilical cord blood donations from eight hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. We are zeroing in on 100. We recently shipped out our 97th cord blood unit for transplant, and so far LifeCord babies have helped patients in 23 states and nine foreign countries, said LifeCord Cellular Therapy Manager Amy Lambert. LifeCord approaches the milestone during July, which is set aside as Cord Blood Awareness Month. Twenty years ago the umbilical cord was considered medical waste. Now, every day somewhere in the world, cord blood is saving lives. Thats because the specialized blood cells found in the cord can be used by patients suffering from leukemia or lymphoma who need marrow transplants. The cord blood acts as a seed to help them grow healthy marrow. It can be stored frozen for nearly 20 years and is already tested, typed and ready for use when it is needed. And the use of cord blood has increased dramatically. According to the National Marrow Donor Program, in 2011 more than 40 percent of transplant patients from racially and ethnically diverse communities received a cord blood transplant. In Florida, babies born at Shands at the University of Florida and North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville, Fla. can donate. There is no charge for donating, and the procedure is simple and safe, said Lambert. Encouraging more parents to donate will further expand the use of cord blood, and more lives will be saved.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com All the power players have reported in about the sexabuse scandal at Penn State. Jerry Sandusky, the perpetrator, has been convicted on 45 counts of molesting young boys. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh has filed his investigation report with the colleges Board of Trustees, saying that for 10 years senior officials of Penn State ignored their obligations to the student body and betrayed the reputation of the university. The Trustees have removed the imposing statue of former football coach Joe Paterno, the man to whom they and the administrators, faculty, and alumni paid homage for decades. For a while at least, there will be no genuflecting to the statue of saint JoePa. Lastly, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has passed judgment on Penn State by expunging from its records all football games in the years 1998 through 2011 the years of the predator. In addition, the university was fined $60 million and banned from post-season bowl games for four years. The number of authorized football scholarships has been reduced from 25 to 15. The school was spared the death penalty of a few years of no football. In 1938, Robert Maynard Hutchins, president of the University of Chicago contributed an article to the Saturday Evening Post magazine about a long-running college football controversy. The title was Gate Receipts and Glory. He began by saying The end of football season is about to release the nations colleges to the pursuit of education. The last nickel will be rung up at the gate; the last halfback will receive his check; and the last alumnus will try to pay off the bets he can recall. Hutchins said college athleticism had become a perversion of amateur athletics. He said athleticism was commercial promotion of college football for the entertainment of the public and enrichment of the universities. University budgets became more and more dependent on football receipts. Larger stadiums were built. Athletes were treated as professionals. The campus clich was that courses on earth science (rocks for jocks) were designed to guarantee football players eligibility to play. Hutchins vocal opponents included sports writers, alumni, professors, trustees, and students. College football had a significant public following long before television. Some fanatical supporters believed football was a patriotic defense against communism. Albert Lasker, a wealthy Chicago trustee and leader of the opposition to Hutchins, maintained that Football is what unifies a university. What would take its place? Hutchins response was education. Hutchins won a small and temporary victory when he eliminated varsity football at Chicago, but he lost the national argument against professionalism to alumni, barbers, hot dog vendors, and bookies, all of whom lived for the kickoff of college football season. Was the Penn State sex scandal inevitable? Since 1938 and before, trustees, administrators, athletes, alumni, and sports fans have been aware of the culture of cover-up which guards the public respectability of semi-professional college football and assures a continuing flow of gate receipts and glory. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 27, 2012 Take a moment to look in your closet and check the label on your clothes. Look to see where your clothing was manufactured. If youre like a lot of us, its something you havent done before. And chances are, your clothes werent made in the U.S. Apparently, the U.S. Olympic Committee doesnt check the labels, either. There was a big stink raised last week when it was discovered that the Olympic team was wearing clothing that was made in China. Some people were quick to jump on the U.S. Olympic Committee for making this choice. Olympic officials scoffed at the complaints. The clothing, they say, came from an American company, Ralph Lauren, which supports American athletes. The opening and closing ceremony clothes and casual clothes to be worn during the Olympics are all being supplied by Ralph Lauren. Committee officials also pointed out that the Olympics are privately funded, not run by the government as they are in many other countries. In other words, we have to save money. Congress reacted negatively immediately. Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat, said the clothes should be put in a big pile and burned. Rep. John Boehner, a Republican, said that the Olympic Committee should know better. But lets face it. This is just a result of a major problem with America. While our textile industry suffers, people like the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are providing products that meet the needs of the American people. Americans tend to buy things that look good, are durable and are not overly expensive. When the U.S. starts producing items equal with those standards, the tide will turn toward buying American goods. I laugh when I read complaints that one of the presidential candidates led the way in outsourcing jobs to other countries. People who say that know nothing of history. This is nothing new. I remember when my children were young, they used to praise the electronics they had from Sony. To them, that was the best electronic company there was. At their age, they didnt care about jobs or factories or workers or things like that. All they knew is when they turned on a Walkman, it worked perfectly. The foreign invasion of goods extends to almost all walks of life, to all types of products, and has for some time. And were all probably guilty of buying items that were made elsewhere. Sometimes, you cant get stuff made in America. So before we look negatively at the Olympic officials, lets try to fix the problem in America. Lets bring jobs back to our country. Some of it has already been done. Some people drive foreign cars, but they were made at assembly lines here in the U.S. That can be done with a bunch of other products. And lets send some Olympic clothing to the Chinese. Maybe their athletes will wear items that are made in the U.S., and we can cancel each other out.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association has come down hard on Penn State, with multi-million dollar fines, bowl bans, scholarship limits and vacated victories. The question is, who suffers the most? Joe Paterno? Maybe his family is bothered by the statements against the legendary coach, but after all, you cant slander or libel the dead. A persons reputation dies with him. Were sure Joe isnt sitting there listening to all this, either. Jerry Sandusky? Actually, hes been convicted. He probably doesnt care about the Penn State scholarships or other sanctions. Hes probably more worried about some of the guys in the yard getting him alone. Were sure theyre not all Nittany Lions fans. The other men who have been charged with perjury? They have legal problems of their own and probably dont care what the NCAA does to Penn State. The former president and other officials, who are gone but so far face no charges? They just want to get away from there as far as possible. So who does that leave? The new coach and the players, who evidently had nothing to do with all of this, and the current students of the university who dont happen to be football players but will forever be linked to the scandal. In other words, the innocent parties. Of course, those who are suffering the most are the abuse victims, and that should never be pushed aside for football. Everyone is hoping that the scars will heal for these young men. Anyone who takes a woe is me attitude just has to read the grand jury report, realize what these victims went through, and then apologize for worrying more about themselves than the boys. But the other ones we feel sorry for are the innocent players. They are suddenly facing a bleak future at Penn State. The NCAA said they could transfer without penalty, and it might even allow schools that accept Penn State players to exceed the scholarship limit for this year. Among those stars, there are probably a few who have pro football abilities and aspirations. They wont have any problem finding a new school. But what about the borderline players, particularly the seniors, the ones who needed good exposure this season to possibly get drafted. This could be a career-ender for some of them. The players who stay will undoubtedly be outmanned in some, if not all, of their contests, especially if a lot of players leave. Of course, it could work the other way, and if most of the players stay, as the new coach says they will, the team could have something to prove by winning, even if it isnt eligible for a conference title or a bowl game. Theyll get a fond greeting at home, but can you imagine what theyll hear from some of the insensitive fans on the road? One sanction that was not imposed was a TV ban. Naturally, we can see some of the greedy networks scrambling to show Penn State games this fall, expecting high ratings, even if the games arent good. That exposure is good for the players who remain. But as is usually the case, when one public person does something offensive, it has a ripple effect through society in his area. Thats true for Jerry Sandusky. And while Paterno may be guilty of failing to act, the major responsibility for all these problems falls on Sandusky. Hes the guilty one that is being punished, and we hope that the residual effects arent too harsh on those left behind.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Property Tax ReferendumsThis is in response to the Letter to the Editor in the South Marion Citizen July 20 edition in which the writer railed against the upcoming referendums to increase property taxes to support Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) and Marion County Public Schools (MCPS). His preference was for sales taxes to be increased rather than property taxes and he blamed the Board of County Commissioners for proposing the property tax increases rather than sales tax increases. His anger is misplaced as the commissioners have no input in either the MCPS or the MRMC tax proposals. The resolutions for MCPSs two referendums that will appear on the Aug. 14 ballot were presented at the commissioners May 1 meeting. To quote the county attorney: Section 1011.73, Fla. Stat. (2011), subsection (2) authorizes the district school board, pursuant to resolution, to direct the county commissioners to call an election at which the electors within the school district may approve an ad valorem tax millage as authorized under Section 1011.71(9), Fla. Stat. (2011). He went on to explain that the commissioners simply act as a conduit and cannot refuse to pass MCPSs resolutions on to the Supervisor of Elections although all five commissioners objected to them. Video available at: http://sire.marioncountyfl.org/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?mee tid660&doctypeSUMMARY (The discussion lasts about 15 minutes and starts at 01:23:45.) The people responsible for putting these two property tax referendums on the ballot are school board members Angie Boynton, Bobby James, Judi Zanetti and Ron Crawford. The resolution for MRMCs referendum that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot has not been presented to the County Commission yet but again the commissioners will have no legal alternative but to agree to pass it on to the Supervisor of Elections. The people responsible for putting MRMCs referendum on the ballot are hospital district trustees Dr. Mike Jordan, Dr. Ravi Chandra, Dr. Srisha Rao, Kulbir Gumman, and Jon Kurtz. In the trustee meeting discussion regarding sales tax support for MRMC, it was stated that the tax would yield about $14 million per year but it would have to be shared with all the indigent care providers in Marion County. MRMCs administrators estimated that MRMC provides about 40 percent of indigent care and therefore the hospitals share would only be about $5.9 million per year. (This is in sharp contrast to the propaganda in which it is implied that MRMC is the only provider of indigent care in Marion County.) The sales tax option was rejected as being insufficient. Sales tax support of MRMC would be fairer than property tax but neither tax will solve their financial problems. Consider the fact that MRMC has written off $18 million of charity care (those making less than 200 percent of the poverty level) and $37 million of other bad debt in the first eight months of this fiscal year. At this rate they will have written off a total of $83 million, including $27 million of charity care, by the end of the fiscal year. At least with a sales tax the people who receive this $83 million of free healthcare would have to contribute a little bit toward the cost of it. Carl Crabtree OcalaRomney and financesAttention all Tea Party people. Do you think that Mitt Romney is taxed enough? Do you have accounts in tax shelters in Switzerland? Or the Cayman Islands? How does it feel to find out that most of us are in a higher tax bracket than Romney. What a great country. We also now find that Romney avoided the draft during the Vietnam era. He sought and got a deferment to become a missionary. Did he go to Africa, Haiti or some other impoverished country in South American? Are you kidding? After all, he is a conservative. He got a deferment, became a missionary, goes where he wants to preach. He went to Paris, France. This guy is all heart. His equity trust company, Bain Capital, looted and tore apart American companies, bankrupted them and sold off their assets. Now you know why he wanted General Motors and Chrysler to go belly up. Bain Capital cost thousands of Americans to lose their jobs. And guess what, most equity companies fall into the 15 percent tax bracket. Whats yours? He has five sons. Have any of them served in the military? Im guessing that none have. They fall into the 1 percent who dont need the bonuses that our government uses to get most of the low-income people to enlist in the armed forces. Cut out the bonuses and you will see the volunteer army slowly disappear. Maybe then, they will bring back the draft and make it everybodys duty to support their country. Why does it seem that all of these conservative, patriotic Republicans all avoided the draft? Here are some of them: Pat Buchanan, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove and best of all, Rush Limbaugh. In closing, Mitt Romney made that famous statement, I quote, I love to fire people. We should pick up that quote and fire him. Also, why wont Romney release his tax returns besides the one he grudgingly was forced to do. He was in the 12 percent tax bracket. Is it because hes over taxed or he hasnt paid taxes in all of those years. Just wondering. William Yakush OcalaSchool taxesAfter reading a recent letter about the school tax increase request, I started wondering about the cost of education and what share my husband and I have paid through the years. Weve been home owners for 50 years and we both had 12 years of public education. If we consider it at todays prices of over $5,000 per student per year and probably an average of $1,000 of our real estate taxes going toward education each of those years, were still behind about 70 years worth of taxes. That makes public education seem like quite a bargain to me. Ill continue to support our local schools and their need for tax increases. These children are the people who will be working in my doctors offices, my bank, my drug store, etc. in just a few years. I want them to receive the best education they can get so that they can be good at what they do in the future. My home value may not depend on local school quality any more since I live in one of our 55+ communities but my quality of life will be helped by having well educated people serving me. Everybody pays property taxes in some form or other. Some of us pay the actual bill; others pay in increased costs for rent and/or services, even the cost of groceries, gas, etc. include a portion for taxes to cover the building involved. Im a member of the retiree peer group and I support the school tax increase and so do many of my friends. Mary Bohn On Top of the WorldQuarterly honor rollA thank you to the organizers and all who participated in the Quarterly Honor Roll at Veterans Park. The great ceremony honored veterans who had died in the previous three months. My husband, Paul R. Millett, U.S. Army, was among the many veterans honored. He was one of only six in his 168th Engineer Combat Battalion who escaped capture or death during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. It was truly an honor to attend the ceremony in his memory. God bless you all. Avis R.

friends watching the local fire department put out a grass fire. Kathy was seated on the back stoop of the fire engine along with the other children. A young man was speeding down the road and had an epileptic seizure. He lost control of his vehicle and it slammed into the back of the fire truck. Sadly, Peggys sister died from her injuries. That tragic loss is something that neither Peggy nor her family ever really got over. After graduating from Mount Saint Mary High School, Peggy worked for New York Telephone as a switchboard operator. After six months of doing that, Peggy became the fourth generation of her family to work for Western Electric. For the next five years she worked for that company building her skills and receiving training in a diverse number of assignments. Among her duties, she took acting lessons and performed as a Can Can Dancer; a clown and at Christmas, she was an elf. It was at Western Electric that she met her husband Joe who worked for her Dad. Joe and Peggy married and had three children. During those early years, the federal government broke up the major telephone companies and so Joe was transferred to Georgia. Peggy, now a stay at home Mom moved with him. She remained a housewife and Mom until her youngest was 12 years old. With her past experience and well documented work ethic, Peggy was hired on at American Telephone & Telegraph. She was placed in the front office as an executive secretary. At around the same time, her marriage of 21 years came to an end and she and Joe divorced. Her youngest child, daughter Kelley, was 14 at the time. Peggy discounts the burden of being a single mom saying that she and her three children got along very well. In spite of the pain that these memories bring, she still manages a smile reflecting a mothers pride and love. Peggys energy level and need for change didnt allow her to stay saddled to a desk for very long. An opportunity opened for her to get out into the field and make not only more money, but to seek new experiences. She managed to work in the new Cable Installation Department; Production Division and even drove a fork lift. The question begged so I asked it, Did you ever drop the cargo off your fork lift? She laughed and answered, Everyone does that at least once. Its interesting to see the spools of cable go rolling around the floor. With 25 years of service to the company, Peggy retired. Her father was ill and living in Homosassa Springs with his second wife. In order to help care for him, Peggy moved down to Florida but shortly after her arrival, he was hospitalized. A few weeks later, he passed away. Because of her friends here in Cherrywood, Peggy bought a house and moved into our community. That was eight years ago. She manages to stay close with her three children. Joe Junior is a Senior Master Sergeant in the Air Force with tours in the Gulf War and Panama. Hes stationed at Dobbins AFB as an instructor. Kathy her oldest daughter lives in Loganville, Georgia, with her husband and five children. Kelley, her youngest, is a working Mom who resides in Dawsonville, Georgia, with her son. In total, Peggy has 10 grandchildren Antiquing furniture; pool; swimming; bocce ball; 100 days of Summer; Veterans Club and most of the other events here at Cherrywood are just a few of the hobbies and activities that Peggy enjoys. Speaking of hobbies, a little know fact about Peggy is that shes a car bug. She worked on and raced cars at the Kayuga Race Track and at various private air strips near Erie. She has a great mechanical ability with engines and did much of the prep work for other drivers. Peggys abilities and efficiency was exemplified as recently as the 7th of July. Peggy was in charge of the servers for the Veterans Appreciation Dinner and under her supervision, with the assistance of hostess Eve Houghtaling, over 120 people were served in less than half an hour. That was quite an accomplishment and a testament to her leadership skills. Among her many other qualities Peggy is a devoted and loyal friend. When needed, she is always there with a caring heart; a quick and easy smile; and compassionate encouragement. Far from a boring life, Peggy has lived through tragedy and hardships with enthusiasm; vitality and a sincere love of people. We at Cherrywood are grateful to Peggy for contributing to our quality of life and for brightening and enriching our community.Contact the writer aturperssec@yahoo.com Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Politics should be simplePolitics should be a relatively simple process: we, the people express our wishes, our politicians listen to our needs, and vote them accordingly in Congress. Now, this may seem to some a simplistic view, but politics shouldnt be much more difficult than that. When the trappings of the political parties making up our republic are stripped away, two things remain: freedom and we, the people. Defending these two should be the principal goal of any administration. If our freedom is being compromised, we must ask ourselves as Abraham Lincoln quoted: Is this a ... government of the people, by the people, for the people ...? If our government disregards our wishes as has been done many times by this administration, if it does things that are not in the best interest of the American people or our Constitution and ignores things that are the answer will be a resounding no. If that is the case, we need a new administration; the one we have now isnt working for the good of all Americans or for our Republic. Joe OHara OcalaThe race cardDont be surprised over the far left playing the race card on the House of Representatives voting Atty. Gen. (AG) Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. They say that the GOP is persecuting Holder because hes Americas first black AG. This has been the lefts strategy for at least 60 years ignore the facts and cry racism. In the early 1950s, when Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (both Jews) were convicted of and executed for espionage, the left claimed they were victims of religious bigotry and other government racist attitudes. They ignored the fact that the presiding judge, two prosecutors, and at least 15 members of the original jury pool were Jewish. In 1996, after analyzing the declassified Verona Cables, liberal (and Jewish) Washington Post writer Nicholas von Hoffman concluded that the Rosenbergs were in fact guilty. Al Shumard Pine RunMedal of HonorThe service members who I have always held the highest regards for are the recipients of the countrys highest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. As far as I am concerned, a person cannot receive a higher award. The Purple Heart ranks almost as high. Our Supreme Court has belittled all military awards. It used to be against the law to falsely claim ownership of these prestigious awards. Now they have made it possible and lawful for anyone to falsely claim to be a recipient of any military award. They claim it is freedom of speech for a person to lie about such an important achievement. I have lost all respect for the nine members of our highest court. Richard D. Rohde Ocala Countryside PresbyterianThe Rev.

Ijust celebrated another birthday, which got me to thinking about the good old days. You can usually tell how old a person is by how many times they refer to the good old days, or the phrase, when I was a youngster. I have come to the conclusion that getting old is not something to be ashamed of in the least. A person reaches a certain age simply because they have not died yet, which is nothing to make a person feel guilty. Although I do not think too much of birthdays, I intend to have as many as possible. Dont get me wrong. I am ready to go when my time is up, but, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy life. My recent birthday got me thinking about the good old days of my youth. Memory is a funny thing. For the most part, we remember the good of our youth and rarely the bad. I often hear some old geezer say, I wish I were 16 again. If their memory was serving them correctly, 16 was not a very good year for any of us. I am glad I have gotten beyond my 16th birthday. As I remember it, it was a terrible year. I can honestly say that the best years of my life are the ones I am living now. Sure, I have some regrets. I have done things I probably should not have done, and I did not do some things I probably should have. If I had to live my life over again not only will I make the same mistakes but also I probably would add to the list quite significantly. I do not want to live my life over again. Once is enough for me, thank you. But as I was thinking of those good old days, I could not help but think what I was thinking about back then. It went something like this. When I was in school sitting in Ms. Ammons class, I was daydreaming about going fishing. All I could think about was what kind of fish were biting out by the lake this afternoon. Ms. Ammon would call upon me and I would have no idea what she was talking about. In my mind, I was fishing. In my body, I was suffering under classititis. It is what students, especially boys, get when they are bored with the class they are in at the time. It involves a lot of jittering. Where was your mind? Ms. Ammon would ask. I hope you werent fishing, now, were you? One thing about good ole Ms. Ammon, she could read a boys mind like a book. Maybe because there are so many blank pages in a young boys mind. I would suffer through counting down the hours and minutes and seconds until the school day would end. You did not hear it from me, and this is not a confession, but on those rare occasions when I would skip school and go fishing, I had another problem. I was where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, but then as I threw out the line waiting for a bite all I could think of was what was happening back in school I was missing. I often wondered if Ms. Ammon was missing me. I would smile and then the fish would bite and my attention would be on the task at hand. It was not long before my mind would wander back to the classroom. What were they doing? What was I missing? For the life of me, I cannot understand why, but I could never enjoy fishing when I was playing hooky from school for thinking about what I was missing back in school. One of the advantages of getting older is developing a sense of maturity. Dont ask me to define maturity, because I am not quite sure what it really means. As a person matures, he begins to learn how to enjoy the moment. This, I say, comes with age. A lot of age in some instances. By the time you learn to enjoy the moment, it is gone. I have come a long way from good ole Ms. Ammons classroom. I will not tell you how many years it has been, lets just say a lot. I still find myself doing the same thing. I am in the middle of doing one thing and I begin thinking of what I could be doing. I could be home reading a book. Then when I go home and begin reading, I think about what I could be doing in the office. I have tried to take a day off for many years. I just cannot seem to manage it. I take a day off and think of what I really could be doing if I was working. When I am working, I think of how much fun I could have if I was taking the day off. I hope to live long enough to be able to bring these two opposites together in some magnificent activity. I have not got there yet. I am aspiring, to be sure. David was right. This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 118:24 KJV). The only thing I need to do today is to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.Rev. James L.

Ocala Health System and Walgreens have teamed up again on a new program which provides the delivery of medications to hospitalized patients prior to discharge. The program eases patients transition from hospital to home, eliminating the need to stop at a pharmacy along the way and offering a personal consultation with a Walgreens pharmacy staff member. Launched earlier this month at Ocala Regional, the program was implemented at West Marion Community Hospital in March 2012 and has grown to be a popular patient service. Prior to discharge, patients have the option to have their prescription(s) delivered to their bedside by a Walgreens pharmacy technician. Walgreens completes the request for any necessary insurance authorizations, fills the prescription(s), and delivers the prescriptions(s) directly to the patients hospital room. The service also includes a personal consultation between the patient and pharmacist to help aid with patient understanding of the medication therapy. A Walgreens pharmacist will also follow-up with patients within 48 hours after discharge to answer any questions or address any concerns. Other benefits to patients include: a free patient hotline for medication consultation with a pharmacist and refill reminders for patients with chronic conditions such as cancer, organ transplant, and HIV. We are pleased to provide this important health care service to our patients and their caregivers. said JoAnn Ankoviak, chief nursing officer, Ocala Regional Medical Center. In addition to providing convenience, our goal is to empower our patients with the education necessary to ensure the ordered prescriptions are taken in the correct dosage at the correct time. Ocala Health System (OHS) encompasses Ocala Regional Medical Center, a 200-bed facility located in the heart of Ocala, and West Marion Community Hospital, a 70-bed hospital located in West Marion County. OHS has the only Commission on Cancer approved cancer center in Marion County and is directly affiliated with the Moffitt Cancer Center. The hospitals offer a host of other quality and award winning services including bariatric surgery, orthopedic care and joint replacement, robotic surgery, cardiac and vascular services including open heart surgery and interventional procedures, emergency, neurological and rehabilitation services.

THE BEGINNERS GOODBYE By Anne Tyler When picking up a Tyler novel, you can anticipate certain thingsa Baltimore setting and quirky, unpredictable characters motivated by either a need for love or for self-discovery. In The Beginners Goodbye the baffling narrative voice belongs to gimpy, geeky thirty-something Aaron Woolcott who because of a childhood virus has lost the use of his right limbs and walks with a cane and a brace. That coupled with an unfortunate stammer made the first woman to show interest in him a candidate for matrimony. Thus, at age 24 he marries Dorothy Rosales, eight years older and 15 inches shorter than he is. They make an odd couple, to be sure, looking more like father and child to those passing by. Even so, they had been married happily, unremarkably for 11 years when Dorothy dies. In Chapter 2 Aaron tells us how it happened. He was home from his publishing job nursing a cold when Dorothy, a radiation oncologist, returns home early from work. She looks for her customary snack of Triscuits but cant find the box. The pair falls into a stupid argument. Then each retreats for solitude she to the sun porch and he to the bedroom. Suddenly he hears an alarming cascade of noises. A tree had fallen on the sun porch injuring his wife fatally. Either trying to resolve old issues or resulting from the intricate byways of human consciousness, Aaron starts seeing dead Dorothys ghost. When a colleague asks him how hes dealing with his grief, Aaron struggles to explain: In a way its like the grief has been covered over with some kind of blanket. Its still there, but the sharpest edges are . muffled sort of. Then every now and then, I lift a corner of the blanket, just to check and whoa! Like a knife! Im not sure that ever will change. Even loyal fans may have trouble thinking of Aaron as only in his thirties. The voice seems to belong to a much older man. And alRemember that Oak Run Travel is a function of ORHA and that trips are for Oak Run residents and their guests. Here are three trips coming up this fall: Due to a typographical error there has been some confusion about the date for The Sound of Musicat The Show Palace in Hudson, Florida.

Hear the iconicClimb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi and especially the namesake Sound of Musicmade famous by Julie Andrews.

The bus leaves at 1 p.m. from Oak Run at a cost of $55 per person with a box lunch and bus drivers tip included. The box lunch has the option of a tropical salad, a turkey and swiss sandwich or a vegetarian soup. You go on a tour of the beautiful grounds followed by reserved seats to hear the Orlando Civic Orchestra play at their annual outdoor concert. Call Jack and Eleanor Foggan, your hosts. A couple is driving around France on their vacation. Stanly and Brenda consider themselves lucky when they find a hotel at a stop in a small village. In A Bed Full of Foreignersthe fun begins when, only a couple of hours into the night, seductions and confrontations run rampant as almost everybody in the hotel winds up in the wrong bed. Join Paul and Emily Pike, your hosts, in discovering the reasons for the hijinks and miscues as Stanly and Brenda wish they had found a quiet seaside resort. This is our annual Thanksgiving Day trip which falls on Nov. 22 this year.

For every hole that the player had no putt or only one putt, she deducted 1 stroke from her total net score. We started play during a sun shower but we were able to play all 18 holes before the heavier rain came in the afternoon. We do have several lakes in the DRAs on the course from the recent heavy rain but all in all our course drains very well and the ground crew keeps it in wonderful shape. The winners were: First Flight 1st place, Sylvia Zappia, 2nd place tie, Pat Blackburn and Carol Allison; Second Flight 1st place tie, Lynn Houghton and Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st place, Mary Kay Frandsen, 2nd place tie, Inge Szabo and Ilene Simnowitz. Jan Tennant was Closest to the Pin.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn July 19 we played low net with full handicap. We started out in the rain, then it cleared up as we got a few holes in. Elsa Berbig came in 1st Ilene Simnowitz 2nd and tied in 3r. Patty Waddell and BJ Lassiter. IIene Simnowitz had a chip in on hole #5 and Cindy Kocher had a chip in on hole #11. Patty Waddell was closest to pin on #16. We are so glad Patty Waddell is back with us now,we have missed her for several months. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game for July 20 was three best net. There were 35 players who participated, and the scores reflected the impact of the hot weather. The winner with a score of 197 was the team of Dick Blackburn, Bruce Stover, Mike Madill, and Larry Soine. Second with a 198 was the team of Ron Catapano, Al Prachel, Virgil Hein, and Joe Paller. Tied for third with 199 were the teams of Al Millett, Bill Staiger, Ed Simnowitz, and Steve Szabo; and Emmett Dowling, Sam Owens, Dick Rizzo, and Duke Slayton. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Virgil Hein, and Ed Simnowitz.

While many may think of potpourri as only a mixture of fragrant plant material, it is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. So, here comes such a collection that doesnt smell too badly, I hope.What so ever ye sow, that shall ye also reapThe family and estate of Cyrus McCormick, the inventor of the reaping machine, funded a school in Chicago for training ministers. Obviously one area of study was counseling and consoling the sick and dying, and bringing healing to grieving survivors. Of course, at McCormick no one ever referred to Death as the Grim Reaper; students and faculty obviously called it the International Harvester.Bank for all sizesThe bank had been robbed. A very short person had brought in a crystal ball on a pillow and declared, This crystal ball is really a bomb. Give me all the money in the bank, or be utterly destroyed. Not having been assailed with a crystal ball before, the tellers were dumb founded and reluctantly complied. The short person left with all the money. Interviewing the bank president, the police asked, Describe the perpetrator. The bank president replied, Upon reflection I would say you are looking for a small medium at large.Sleepless in SettleAs they were leaving church one Sunday, a man confided to his friend that he was suffering from insomnia. The friend asserted that he had no trouble getting to sleep. Really. the first man inquired. Do you count sheep? No, was the retort. I talk to the shepherd.ThinkThe man complained that every time he put on his hat he heard music. The doctor fixed him up. He removed his hatband. My electricity went out and I felt powerless to do anything about it. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, You stay here; Ill go on a head. I used to be a tap dancer until I fell in the sink. The watchmaker is always so tired because he works around the clock. My cat got stolen. I think she was taken by a purr snatcher. Bob the plumber is really sweet on this girl, Celine, who comes from a really poor family. So he put in a Poor Celine Throne for her. The circus fired their accountant for juggling the books. My wife really likes to make pottery, but to me its just kiln time. Did you ever notice, the Roman Numerals for forty are XL? Waiter: There hasnt been much stirring around this restaurant. Diner: Why not? Waiter: Somebody stole all the spoons. Motion promotionI was in my car driving along, when my boss called. He said, Youve been promoted. I swerved. Then he called a second time, and said, Youve been promoted again. And I swerved again. He called a third time, and said, Youre managing director. And I crashed into a tree. A policeman came up, and asked, What happened to you? I said, I careered off the road.Cool receptionAn American couple, fond of all aged richly historic England things, decided to retire to London to search for a castle. During their July vacation they bought a wonderful ancient house having a long and noble history. They sold their house in Chicago and in November crossed the pond to retire. To their horror, they found that their new home was abysmally cold. They immediately set about trying to get a central heating system installed. Sadly, contractors told them in a house that old, it simply wasnt feasible. I was afraid it would come down to this, the husband finally said. What, honey? the wife asked. We cant have archaic and heat it, too.Sweet and smellyA man went into a convenience store and picked up a bottle of fruit juice and a packet of sugar. He put the sugar into his pocket, paid for the fruit juice and then left the store. A security man stopped him and said, I saw you pay for the fruit juice but not the packet of sugar. The man replied, No you dont understand I didnt steal the sugar; look at this. He pulled out the bottle of fruit juice and said, look here, it says sugar free. Heres some potpourri coming your way PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE19 PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Guide Dog Foundation needs volunteersThe Guide Dog Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides guide dogs to blind individuals without cost, is seeking volunteers to raise a puppy from seven weeks until one year of age.

running in full swing; prepared to help our residents survive and thrive during any kind of natural disaster. Wednesday morning they met to disseminate vital information about various pieces of equipment to those in attendance. Next month is a very important meeting. Everyone is urged to come out and see Your Survival; a movie by Dr. Arnett. An expert on the subject, Dr. Arnett has been seen on numerous TV shows and documentaries. This presentation is not only interesting and entertaining, it is life saving. Youll be able to see this program on Aug. 15 at 8:30 a.m. in the clubhouse. In addition you can meet the CERT team; ask questions; get important information and helpful suggestions on what to do in emergency situations. The CERT team has collected information of nearly sixty of our residents with Special Needs. The forms have been filled out and filed confidentially in a safe place. In the event of an emergency situation, those who filled out the paperwork will receive the assistance they need to be safe and secure. You can pick up a Special Needs form from any CERT member or from Geri in the office. We are proud of our CERT team members and all they do for our community. You can join this all important group of certified trained specialists. See any CERT member for further information or better yet, come on out for the presentation of August 15th and see for yourself what great things you can do. ReminderAugust is a month when many of us take time to catch our breath and spend time with family and friends while we gear up for another exciting season of fun activities. Because of that, there will be no: Movie Night; Veterans Club Meeting; Trivia; Camera Club or Garden Club meetings in August. Also, Bocce Ball will not be played on the last two Saturdays of the month; Aug.t 18 or 25. The group will still get together on the first two Saturdays, the 4th & 11th so come to the courts behind the clubhouse and have some fun on those two nights. Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who makes a significant contribution to the quality of life here in the community. This week we talk with Peggy Konar, who has become a fixture at Cherrywood by her bright personality and hard work. Always modest, Peggy would say that she has had a boring life, but in reality she is not boring in any way. She was born in Chicago and lived with two brothers and two sisters for the beginning of her life. When Peggy was only 4, her father was transferred to Buffalo, New York, by Western Electric. Her Dad was the third generation of her family to be employed by that company. Naturally the family went with him and they relocated away from their relatives and friends. Because they were a close family, until she was 13, Peggy would spend the summers with her aunt and cousins in Chicago. She remembers those times fondly. She enjoyed going to the movies; playing with her cousins and just hanging out in the old neighborhood. One summer, tragedy struck the family while she was away. Her younger sister, Kathy, was with some Its Country Under the Sun on Aug. 18 from 5 until 9 p.m. with entertainment by the wild and witty Kenny Jackson. Put on your comfortable blue jeans, favorite western shirt and grab your cowboy hat then come on down to the clubhouse. Kennys music will have you up dancing; singing and tapping your toes to his country beat. Enjoy a pulled pork sandwich with all the fixings; iced tea or lemonade (artificially sweetened) and dessert. Of course youre welcome to bring your own beverages. All of the 100 Days of Summer events are free to Cherrywood residents thanks to the generosity of Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management but tickets are definitely required. See Geri for your tickets and if you have a guest, the tickets are $12 per person and Geri can fix you up with those also. The ticket count helps our Social Committee know how many to plan for but more importantly, they enter you into the door prize drawing. For this event our door prize is a gift certificate to Outback Steak House. Naturally there will be 50/50 drawings with the proceeds going to Hospice. The doors open at 5 p.m. so come early and get your seats with friends and family and prepare for a fantastic night of down home Country.Norm Pellerin 9-Ball Pool TournamentA week-end of challenging fun is scheduled for Aug. 20 and 21 in the poolroom of the clubhouse. Its the annual Norm Pellerin 9-Ball Tournament where competition and good times roll faster than the balls on the tables. Players of all levels are invited to participate so come to the poolroom and sign up before Aug. 15. Thats the cut off date for entrants and is also the day that players meet for their briefing on the rules; order of play and procedures. The meeting starts promptly at 10 a.m. On Friday, Aug. 17, a complete schedule of the players and assigned times will be posted in the poolroom to help players make out their schedules. For more information or questions call Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208.Ladies Travel BilliardsThe 2012-2013 Schedule for our Ladies Traveling Pool Team is now posted in the poolroom. The league has recently expanded so our ladies will be playing 3 times each month instead of just twice. Because of this, we need more ladies to come out and join us so call team Captain, Ruth Hurley at 352-873-7208. Anyone interested in learning to play pool should also contact Ruth. There are many opportunities to learn the game and to play for just plain fun. Wednesday afternoons from 1 until 3 p.m. for example, there is co-ed pool at the clubhouse. This is a great place to learn; to enjoy the game and to relax among friends. Call Ruth for more information about the travel team and learning or just playing the challenging game of pool.Veterans Club new committeeThere are many reasons for joining the Cherrywood Veterans Club and Ruth Hurley and Eve Houghtaling just gave everyone another; i.e. a Memorial Committee. When a veteran or their spouse passes away, often a reception is held in our clubhouse following the funeral. Our new committee will help support the family of that individual by assisting with everything from set up to clean up. In addition, the committee will ensure that the name of the veteran is added to the Memorial Plaque located in the clubhouse. There is a need for more members of this committee so if you are willing to help, please contact Eve, Ruth or your humble correspondent. Veterans Club members are encouraged to respond as this is just another way for veterans to help veterans.Cherrywood TravelTravel back in time at the Alhambra Dinner theatre on Saturday, Aug. 11, with a tribute to Hank Williams.

In addition you can meet the CERT team; ask questions; get important information and helpful suggestions on what to do in emergency situations.

In the event of an emergency situation, those who filled out the paperwork will receive the assistance they need to be safe and secure.

While many may think of potpourri as only a mixture of fragrant plant material, it is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. So, here comes such a collection that doesnt smell too badly, I hope.What so ever ye sow, that shall ye also reapThe family and estate of Cyrus McCormick, the inventor of the reaping machine, funded a school in Chicago for training ministers. Obviously one area of study was counseling and consoling the sick and dying, and bringing healing to grieving survivors. Of course, at McCormick no one ever referred to Death as the Grim Reaper; students and faculty obviously called it the International Harvester.Bank for all sizesThe bank had been robbed. A very short person had brought in a crystal ball on a pillow and declared, This crystal ball is really a bomb. Give me all the money in the bank, or be utterly destroyed. Not having been assailed with a crystal ball before, the tellers were dumb founded and reluctantly complied. The short person left with all the money. Interviewing the bank president, the police asked, Describe the perpetrator. The bank president replied, Upon reflection I would say you are looking for a small medium at large.Sleepless in SettleAs they were leaving church one Sunday, a man confided to his friend that he was suffering from insomnia. The friend asserted that he had no trouble getting to sleep. Really. the first man inquired. Do you count sheep? No, was the retort. I talk to the shepherd.ThinkThe man complained that every time he put on his hat he heard music. The doctor fixed him up. He removed his hatband. My electricity went out and I felt powerless to do anything about it. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, You stay here; Ill go on a head. I used to be a tap dancer until I fell in the sink. The watchmaker is always so tired because he works around the clock. My cat got stolen. I think she was taken by a purr snatcher. Bob the plumber is really sweet on this girl, Celine, who comes from a really poor family. So he put in a Poor Celine Throne for her. The circus fired their accountant for juggling the books. My wife really likes to make pottery, but to me its just kiln time. Did you ever notice, the Roman Numerals for forty are XL? Waiter: There hasnt been much stirring around this restaurant. Diner: Why not? Waiter: Somebody stole all the spoons. Motion promotionI was in my car driving along, when my boss called. He said, Youve been promoted. I swerved. Then he called a second time, and said, Youve been promoted again. And I swerved again. He called a third time, and said, Youre managing director. And I crashed into a tree. A policeman came up, and asked, What happened to you? I said, I careered off the road.Cool receptionAn American couple, fond of all aged richly historic England things, decided to retire to London to search for a castle. During their July vacation they bought a wonderful ancient house having a long and noble history. They sold their house in Chicago and in November crossed the pond to retire. To their horror, they found that their new home was abysmally cold. They immediately set about trying to get a central heating system installed. Sadly, contractors told them in a house that old, it simply wasnt feasible. I was afraid it would come down to this, the husband finally said. What, honey? the wife asked. We cant have archaic and heat it, too.Sweet and smellyA man went into a convenience store and picked up a bottle of fruit juice and a packet of sugar. He put the sugar into his pocket, paid for the fruit juice and then left the store. A security man stopped him and said, I saw you pay for the fruit juice but not the packet of sugar. The man replied, No you dont understand I didnt steal the sugar; look at this. He pulled out the bottle of fruit juice and said, look here, it says sugar free. Heres some potpourri coming your way PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE19 PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Guide Dog Foundation needs volunteersThe Guide Dog Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides guide dogs to blind individuals without cost, is seeking volunteers to raise a puppy from seven weeks until one year of age.

THE BEGINNERS GOODBYE By Anne Tyler When picking up a Tyler novel, you can anticipate certain thingsa Baltimore setting and quirky, unpredictable characters motivated by either a need for love or for self-discovery. In The Beginners Goodbye the baffling narrative voice belongs to gimpy, geeky thirty-something Aaron Woolcott who because of a childhood virus has lost the use of his right limbs and walks with a cane and a brace. That coupled with an unfortunate stammer made the first woman to show interest in him a candidate for matrimony. Thus, at age 24 he marries Dorothy Rosales, eight years older and 15 inches shorter than he is. They make an odd couple, to be sure, looking more like father and child to those passing by. Even so, they had been married happily, unremarkably for 11 years when Dorothy dies. In Chapter 2 Aaron tells us how it happened. He was home from his publishing job nursing a cold when Dorothy, a radiation oncologist, returns home early from work. She looks for her customary snack of Triscuits but cant find the box. The pair falls into a stupid argument. Then each retreats for solitude she to the sun porch and he to the bedroom. Suddenly he hears an alarming cascade of noises. A tree had fallen on the sun porch injuring his wife fatally. Either trying to resolve old issues or resulting from the intricate byways of human consciousness, Aaron starts seeing dead Dorothys ghost. When a colleague asks him how hes dealing with his grief, Aaron struggles to explain: In a way its like the grief has been covered over with some kind of blanket. Its still there, but the sharpest edges are . muffled sort of. Then every now and then, I lift a corner of the blanket, just to check and whoa! Like a knife! Im not sure that ever will change. Even loyal fans may have trouble thinking of Aaron as only in his thirties. The voice seems to belong to a much older man. And alRemember that Oak Run Travel is a function of ORHA and that trips are for Oak Run residents and their guests. Here are three trips coming up this fall: Due to a typographical error there has been some confusion about the date for The Sound of Musicat The Show Palace in Hudson, Florida. The correct date is Sunday, Oct. 7. So, with the correct date now known, be sure to call hosts John and Marion Mowen to get your ticket for this classic by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Hear the iconicClimb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi and especially the namesake Sound of Musicmade famous by Julie Andrews. For $68.50 you get the buffet which starts at 1 p.m., the show starting at 3 p.m. and the bus drivers tip. We are looking forward to Bok Tower Gardens on Saturday, Nov. 10. The bus leaves at 1 p.m. from Oak Run at a cost of $55 per person with a box lunch and bus drivers tip included. The box lunch has the option of a tropical salad, a turkey and swiss sandwich or a vegetarian soup. You go on a tour of the beautiful grounds followed by reserved seats to hear the Orlando Civic Orchestra play at their annual outdoor concert. Call Jack and Eleanor Foggan, your hosts. A couple is driving around France on their vacation. Stanly and Brenda consider themselves lucky when they find a hotel at a stop in a small village. In A Bed Full of Foreignersthe fun begins when, only a couple of hours into the night, seductions and confrontations run rampant as almost everybody in the hotel winds up in the wrong bed. Join Paul and Emily Pike, your hosts, in discovering the reasons for the hijinks and miscues as Stanly and Brenda wish they had found a quiet seaside resort. This is our annual Thanksgiving Day trip which falls on Nov. 22 this year. The bus leaves at 8:30 a.m. and the buffet at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre begins at 11 a.m. The show follows at 1 p.m. You get a great show and a wonderful buffet plus the bus drivers tip for only $58 per person. Call Paul and Emily to assure your seat.Pancake breakfastCome to the Orchid Club tomorrow, Saturday, July 28, for Oak Runs great pancake breakfast served from 8 to 10 a.m. There will be feather light pancakes, sausage, juice, and coffee or tea.

Our choreographer Shari Weber has developed a dance routine to go along with the song they sing which may not end up as the highlight of the play but possibly the funniest. Early ticket sales in August are on the 8th from 8:30 to 9 a.m., the 11th from 8 to 10 a.m. and the 14th from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Remember, if you have difficulty getting to a ticket sale, you can obtain one by phoning Linda Noel at 352-873-9908.

The show will be on stage at the Palm Grove Club on Oct. 12, 13 and 14. Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, July 17, we played Aces Wild. For every hole that the player had no putt or only one putt, she deducted 1 stroke from her total net score. We started play during a sun shower but we were able to play all 18 holes before the heavier rain came in the afternoon. We do have several lakes in the DRAs on the course from the recent heavy rain but all in all our course drains very well and the ground crew keeps it in wonderful shape. The winners were: First Flight 1st place, Sylvia Zappia, 2nd place tie, Pat Blackburn and Carol Allison; Second Flight 1st place tie, Lynn Houghton and Maureen Edwards; Third Flight 1st place, Mary Kay Frandsen, 2nd place tie, Inge Szabo and Ilene Simnowitz. Jan Tennant was Closest to the Pin.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn July 19 we played low net with full handicap. We started out in the rain, then it cleared up as we got a few holes in. Elsa Berbig came in 1st Ilene Simnowitz 2nd and tied in 3r. Patty Waddell and BJ Lassiter. IIene Simnowitz had a chip in on hole #5 and Cindy Kocher had a chip in on hole #11. Patty Waddell was closest to pin on #16. We are so glad Patty Waddell is back with us now,we have missed her for several months. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game for July 20 was three best net. There were 35 players who participated, and the scores reflected the impact of the hot weather. The winner with a score of 197 was the team of Dick Blackburn, Bruce Stover, Mike Madill, and Larry Soine. Second with a 198 was the team of Ron Catapano, Al Prachel, Virgil Hein, and Joe Paller. Tied for third with 199 were the teams of Al Millett, Bill Staiger, Ed Simnowitz, and Steve Szabo; and Emmett Dowling, Sam Owens, Dick Rizzo, and Duke Slayton. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Ron Catapano (2), Virgil Hein, and Ed Simnowitz.

Ocala Health System and Walgreens have teamed up again on a new program which provides the delivery of medications to hospitalized patients prior to discharge. The program eases patients transition from hospital to home, eliminating the need to stop at a pharmacy along the way and offering a personal consultation with a Walgreens pharmacy staff member. Launched earlier this month at Ocala Regional, the program was implemented at West Marion Community Hospital in March 2012 and has grown to be a popular patient service. Prior to discharge, patients have the option to have their prescription(s) delivered to their bedside by a Walgreens pharmacy technician. Walgreens completes the request for any necessary insurance authorizations, fills the prescription(s), and delivers the prescriptions(s) directly to the patients hospital room. The service also includes a personal consultation between the patient and pharmacist to help aid with patient understanding of the medication therapy. A Walgreens pharmacist will also follow-up with patients within 48 hours after discharge to answer any questions or address any concerns. Other benefits to patients include: a free patient hotline for medication consultation with a pharmacist and refill reminders for patients with chronic conditions such as cancer, organ transplant, and HIV. We are pleased to provide this important health care service to our patients and their caregivers. said JoAnn Ankoviak, chief nursing officer, Ocala Regional Medical Center. In addition to providing convenience, our goal is to empower our patients with the education necessary to ensure the ordered prescriptions are taken in the correct dosage at the correct time. Ocala Health System (OHS) encompasses Ocala Regional Medical Center, a 200-bed facility located in the heart of Ocala, and West Marion Community Hospital, a 70-bed hospital located in West Marion County. OHS has the only Commission on Cancer approved cancer center in Marion County and is directly affiliated with the Moffitt Cancer Center. The hospitals offer a host of other quality and award winning services including bariatric surgery, orthopedic care and joint replacement, robotic surgery, cardiac and vascular services including open heart surgery and interventional procedures, emergency, neurological and rehabilitation services. Ocala Healths outpatient facilities include Family Care Specialists, a primary care network of seven locations throughout Marion County; Advanced Imaging Centers with two locations; a freestanding Wound Center with Hyperbaric Therapy; and a Senior Wellness Community Center.

Ijust celebrated another birthday, which got me to thinking about the good old days. You can usually tell how old a person is by how many times they refer to the good old days, or the phrase, when I was a youngster. I have come to the conclusion that getting old is not something to be ashamed of in the least. A person reaches a certain age simply because they have not died yet, which is nothing to make a person feel guilty. Although I do not think too much of birthdays, I intend to have as many as possible. Dont get me wrong. I am ready to go when my time is up, but, in the meantime, I am going to enjoy life. My recent birthday got me thinking about the good old days of my youth. Memory is a funny thing. For the most part, we remember the good of our youth and rarely the bad. I often hear some old geezer say, I wish I were 16 again. If their memory was serving them correctly, 16 was not a very good year for any of us. I am glad I have gotten beyond my 16th birthday. As I remember it, it was a terrible year. I can honestly say that the best years of my life are the ones I am living now. Sure, I have some regrets. I have done things I probably should not have done, and I did not do some things I probably should have. If I had to live my life over again not only will I make the same mistakes but also I probably would add to the list quite significantly. I do not want to live my life over again. Once is enough for me, thank you. But as I was thinking of those good old days, I could not help but think what I was thinking about back then. It went something like this. When I was in school sitting in Ms. Ammons class, I was daydreaming about going fishing. All I could think about was what kind of fish were biting out by the lake this afternoon. Ms. Ammon would call upon me and I would have no idea what she was talking about. In my mind, I was fishing. In my body, I was suffering under classititis. It is what students, especially boys, get when they are bored with the class they are in at the time. It involves a lot of jittering. Where was your mind? Ms. Ammon would ask. I hope you werent fishing, now, were you? One thing about good ole Ms. Ammon, she could read a boys mind like a book. Maybe because there are so many blank pages in a young boys mind. I would suffer through counting down the hours and minutes and seconds until the school day would end. You did not hear it from me, and this is not a confession, but on those rare occasions when I would skip school and go fishing, I had another problem. I was where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, but then as I threw out the line waiting for a bite all I could think of was what was happening back in school I was missing. I often wondered if Ms. Ammon was missing me. I would smile and then the fish would bite and my attention would be on the task at hand. It was not long before my mind would wander back to the classroom. What were they doing? What was I missing? For the life of me, I cannot understand why, but I could never enjoy fishing when I was playing hooky from school for thinking about what I was missing back in school. One of the advantages of getting older is developing a sense of maturity. Dont ask me to define maturity, because I am not quite sure what it really means. As a person matures, he begins to learn how to enjoy the moment. This, I say, comes with age. A lot of age in some instances. By the time you learn to enjoy the moment, it is gone. I have come a long way from good ole Ms. Ammons classroom. I will not tell you how many years it has been, lets just say a lot. I still find myself doing the same thing. I am in the middle of doing one thing and I begin thinking of what I could be doing. I could be home reading a book. Then when I go home and begin reading, I think about what I could be doing in the office. I have tried to take a day off for many years. I just cannot seem to manage it. I take a day off and think of what I really could be doing if I was working. When I am working, I think of how much fun I could have if I was taking the day off. I hope to live long enough to be able to bring these two opposites together in some magnificent activity. I have not got there yet. I am aspiring, to be sure. David was right. This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 118:24 KJV). The only thing I need to do today is to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.Rev. James L.

We are excited to be able to offer this workshop to local students and are very grateful to JTF for making scholarships available to local youth. Camp Broadway is offering Camp Broadway Experience in select cities as it surveys potential markets to potentially partner with for its signature fiveday program in the future, shares Lisa Lombardo with the Creative Management Group who represents Camp Broadway.

friends watching the local fire department put out a grass fire. Kathy was seated on the back stoop of the fire engine along with the other children. A young man was speeding down the road and had an epileptic seizure. He lost control of his vehicle and it slammed into the back of the fire truck. Sadly, Peggys sister died from her injuries. That tragic loss is something that neither Peggy nor her family ever really got over. After graduating from Mount Saint Mary High School, Peggy worked for New York Telephone as a switchboard operator. After six months of doing that, Peggy became the fourth generation of her family to work for Western Electric. For the next five years she worked for that company building her skills and receiving training in a diverse number of assignments. Among her duties, she took acting lessons and performed as a Can Can Dancer; a clown and at Christmas, she was an elf. It was at Western Electric that she met her husband Joe who worked for her Dad. Joe and Peggy married and had three children. During those early years, the federal government broke up the major telephone companies and so Joe was transferred to Georgia. Peggy, now a stay at home Mom moved with him. She remained a housewife and Mom until her youngest was 12 years old. With her past experience and well documented work ethic, Peggy was hired on at American Telephone & Telegraph. She was placed in the front office as an executive secretary. At around the same time, her marriage of 21 years came to an end and she and Joe divorced. Her youngest child, daughter Kelley, was 14 at the time. Peggy discounts the burden of being a single mom saying that she and her three children got along very well. In spite of the pain that these memories bring, she still manages a smile reflecting a mothers pride and love. Peggys energy level and need for change didnt allow her to stay saddled to a desk for very long. An opportunity opened for her to get out into the field and make not only more money, but to seek new experiences. She managed to work in the new Cable Installation Department; Production Division and even drove a fork lift. The question begged so I asked it, Did you ever drop the cargo off your fork lift? She laughed and answered, Everyone does that at least once. Its interesting to see the spools of cable go rolling around the floor. With 25 years of service to the company, Peggy retired. Her father was ill and living in Homosassa Springs with his second wife. In order to help care for him, Peggy moved down to Florida but shortly after her arrival, he was hospitalized. A few weeks later, he passed away. Because of her friends here in Cherrywood, Peggy bought a house and moved into our community. That was eight years ago. She manages to stay close with her three children. Joe Junior is a Senior Master Sergeant in the Air Force with tours in the Gulf War and Panama. Hes stationed at Dobbins AFB as an instructor. Kathy her oldest daughter lives in Loganville, Georgia, with her husband and five children. Kelley, her youngest, is a working Mom who resides in Dawsonville, Georgia, with her son. In total, Peggy has 10 grandchildren Antiquing furniture; pool; swimming; bocce ball; 100 days of Summer; Veterans Club and most of the other events here at Cherrywood are just a few of the hobbies and activities that Peggy enjoys. Speaking of hobbies, a little know fact about Peggy is that shes a car bug. She worked on and raced cars at the Kayuga Race Track and at various private air strips near Erie. She has a great mechanical ability with engines and did much of the prep work for other drivers. Peggys abilities and efficiency was exemplified as recently as the 7th of July. Peggy was in charge of the servers for the Veterans Appreciation Dinner and under her supervision, with the assistance of hostess Eve Houghtaling, over 120 people were served in less than half an hour. That was quite an accomplishment and a testament to her leadership skills. Among her many other qualities Peggy is a devoted and loyal friend. When needed, she is always there with a caring heart; a quick and easy smile; and compassionate encouragement. Far from a boring life, Peggy has lived through tragedy and hardships with enthusiasm; vitality and a sincere love of people. We at Cherrywood are grateful to Peggy for contributing to our quality of life and for brightening and enriching our community.Contact the writer aturperssec@yahoo.com Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Politics should be simplePolitics should be a relatively simple process: we, the people express our wishes, our politicians listen to our needs, and vote them accordingly in Congress. Now, this may seem to some a simplistic view, but politics shouldnt be much more difficult than that. When the trappings of the political parties making up our republic are stripped away, two things remain: freedom and we, the people. Defending these two should be the principal goal of any administration. If our freedom is being compromised, we must ask ourselves as Abraham Lincoln quoted: Is this a ... government of the people, by the people, for the people ...? If our government disregards our wishes as has been done many times by this administration, if it does things that are not in the best interest of the American people or our Constitution and ignores things that are the answer will be a resounding no. If that is the case, we need a new administration; the one we have now isnt working for the good of all Americans or for our Republic. Joe OHara OcalaThe race cardDont be surprised over the far left playing the race card on the House of Representatives voting Atty. Gen. (AG) Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. They say that the GOP is persecuting Holder because hes Americas first black AG. This has been the lefts strategy for at least 60 years ignore the facts and cry racism. In the early 1950s, when Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (both Jews) were convicted of and executed for espionage, the left claimed they were victims of religious bigotry and other government racist attitudes. They ignored the fact that the presiding judge, two prosecutors, and at least 15 members of the original jury pool were Jewish. In 1996, after analyzing the declassified Verona Cables, liberal (and Jewish) Washington Post writer Nicholas von Hoffman concluded that the Rosenbergs were in fact guilty. Al Shumard Pine RunMedal of HonorThe service members who I have always held the highest regards for are the recipients of the countrys highest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. As far as I am concerned, a person cannot receive a higher award. The Purple Heart ranks almost as high. Our Supreme Court has belittled all military awards. It used to be against the law to falsely claim ownership of these prestigious awards. Now they have made it possible and lawful for anyone to falsely claim to be a recipient of any military award. They claim it is freedom of speech for a person to lie about such an important achievement. I have lost all respect for the nine members of our highest court. Richard D.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Property Tax ReferendumsThis is in response to the Letter to the Editor in the South Marion Citizen July 20 edition in which the writer railed against the upcoming referendums to increase property taxes to support Munroe Regional Medical Center (MRMC) and Marion County Public Schools (MCPS). His preference was for sales taxes to be increased rather than property taxes and he blamed the Board of County Commissioners for proposing the property tax increases rather than sales tax increases. His anger is misplaced as the commissioners have no input in either the MCPS or the MRMC tax proposals. The resolutions for MCPSs two referendums that will appear on the Aug. 14 ballot were presented at the commissioners May 1 meeting. To quote the county attorney: Section 1011.73, Fla. Stat. (2011), subsection (2) authorizes the district school board, pursuant to resolution, to direct the county commissioners to call an election at which the electors within the school district may approve an ad valorem tax millage as authorized under Section 1011.71(9), Fla. Stat. (2011). He went on to explain that the commissioners simply act as a conduit and cannot refuse to pass MCPSs resolutions on to the Supervisor of Elections although all five commissioners objected to them. Video available at: http://sire.marioncountyfl.org/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?mee tid660&doctypeSUMMARY (The discussion lasts about 15 minutes and starts at 01:23:45.) The people responsible for putting these two property tax referendums on the ballot are school board members Angie Boynton, Bobby James, Judi Zanetti and Ron Crawford. The resolution for MRMCs referendum that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot has not been presented to the County Commission yet but again the commissioners will have no legal alternative but to agree to pass it on to the Supervisor of Elections. The people responsible for putting MRMCs referendum on the ballot are hospital district trustees Dr. Mike Jordan, Dr. Ravi Chandra, Dr. Srisha Rao, Kulbir Gumman, and Jon Kurtz. In the trustee meeting discussion regarding sales tax support for MRMC, it was stated that the tax would yield about $14 million per year but it would have to be shared with all the indigent care providers in Marion County. MRMCs administrators estimated that MRMC provides about 40 percent of indigent care and therefore the hospitals share would only be about $5.9 million per year. (This is in sharp contrast to the propaganda in which it is implied that MRMC is the only provider of indigent care in Marion County.) The sales tax option was rejected as being insufficient. Sales tax support of MRMC would be fairer than property tax but neither tax will solve their financial problems. Consider the fact that MRMC has written off $18 million of charity care (those making less than 200 percent of the poverty level) and $37 million of other bad debt in the first eight months of this fiscal year. At this rate they will have written off a total of $83 million, including $27 million of charity care, by the end of the fiscal year. At least with a sales tax the people who receive this $83 million of free healthcare would have to contribute a little bit toward the cost of it. Carl Crabtree OcalaRomney and financesAttention all Tea Party people. Do you think that Mitt Romney is taxed enough? Do you have accounts in tax shelters in Switzerland? Or the Cayman Islands? How does it feel to find out that most of us are in a higher tax bracket than Romney. What a great country. We also now find that Romney avoided the draft during the Vietnam era. He sought and got a deferment to become a missionary. Did he go to Africa, Haiti or some other impoverished country in South American? Are you kidding? After all, he is a conservative. He got a deferment, became a missionary, goes where he wants to preach. He went to Paris, France. This guy is all heart. His equity trust company, Bain Capital, looted and tore apart American companies, bankrupted them and sold off their assets. Now you know why he wanted General Motors and Chrysler to go belly up. Bain Capital cost thousands of Americans to lose their jobs. And guess what, most equity companies fall into the 15 percent tax bracket. Whats yours? He has five sons. Have any of them served in the military? Im guessing that none have. They fall into the 1 percent who dont need the bonuses that our government uses to get most of the low-income people to enlist in the armed forces. Cut out the bonuses and you will see the volunteer army slowly disappear. Maybe then, they will bring back the draft and make it everybodys duty to support their country. Why does it seem that all of these conservative, patriotic Republicans all avoided the draft? Here are some of them: Pat Buchanan, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove and best of all, Rush Limbaugh. In closing, Mitt Romney made that famous statement, I quote, I love to fire people. We should pick up that quote and fire him. Also, why wont Romney release his tax returns besides the one he grudgingly was forced to do. He was in the 12 percent tax bracket. Is it because hes over taxed or he hasnt paid taxes in all of those years. Just wondering. William Yakush OcalaSchool taxesAfter reading a recent letter about the school tax increase request, I started wondering about the cost of education and what share my husband and I have paid through the years. Weve been home owners for 50 years and we both had 12 years of public education. If we consider it at todays prices of over $5,000 per student per year and probably an average of $1,000 of our real estate taxes going toward education each of those years, were still behind about 70 years worth of taxes. That makes public education seem like quite a bargain to me. Ill continue to support our local schools and their need for tax increases. These children are the people who will be working in my doctors offices, my bank, my drug store, etc. in just a few years. I want them to receive the best education they can get so that they can be good at what they do in the future. My home value may not depend on local school quality any more since I live in one of our 55+ communities but my quality of life will be helped by having well educated people serving me. Everybody pays property taxes in some form or other. Some of us pay the actual bill; others pay in increased costs for rent and/or services, even the cost of groceries, gas, etc. include a portion for taxes to cover the building involved. Im a member of the retiree peer group and I support the school tax increase and so do many of my friends. Mary Bohn On Top of the WorldQuarterly honor rollA thank you to the organizers and all who participated in the Quarterly Honor Roll at Veterans Park. The great ceremony honored veterans who had died in the previous three months. My husband, Paul R. Millett, U.S. Army, was among the many veterans honored. He was one of only six in his 168th Engineer Combat Battalion who escaped capture or death during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. It was truly an honor to attend the ceremony in his memory. God bless you all. Avis R.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com All the power players have reported in about the sexabuse scandal at Penn State. Jerry Sandusky, the perpetrator, has been convicted on 45 counts of molesting young boys. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh has filed his investigation report with the colleges Board of Trustees, saying that for 10 years senior officials of Penn State ignored their obligations to the student body and betrayed the reputation of the university. The Trustees have removed the imposing statue of former football coach Joe Paterno, the man to whom they and the administrators, faculty, and alumni paid homage for decades. For a while at least, there will be no genuflecting to the statue of saint JoePa. Lastly, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has passed judgment on Penn State by expunging from its records all football games in the years 1998 through 2011 the years of the predator. In addition, the university was fined $60 million and banned from post-season bowl games for four years. The number of authorized football scholarships has been reduced from 25 to 15. The school was spared the death penalty of a few years of no football. In 1938, Robert Maynard Hutchins, president of the University of Chicago contributed an article to the Saturday Evening Post magazine about a long-running college football controversy. The title was Gate Receipts and Glory. He began by saying The end of football season is about to release the nations colleges to the pursuit of education. The last nickel will be rung up at the gate; the last halfback will receive his check; and the last alumnus will try to pay off the bets he can recall. Hutchins said college athleticism had become a perversion of amateur athletics. He said athleticism was commercial promotion of college football for the entertainment of the public and enrichment of the universities. University budgets became more and more dependent on football receipts. Larger stadiums were built. Athletes were treated as professionals. The campus clich was that courses on earth science (rocks for jocks) were designed to guarantee football players eligibility to play. Hutchins vocal opponents included sports writers, alumni, professors, trustees, and students. College football had a significant public following long before television. Some fanatical supporters believed football was a patriotic defense against communism. Albert Lasker, a wealthy Chicago trustee and leader of the opposition to Hutchins, maintained that Football is what unifies a university. What would take its place? Hutchins response was education. Hutchins won a small and temporary victory when he eliminated varsity football at Chicago, but he lost the national argument against professionalism to alumni, barbers, hot dog vendors, and bookies, all of whom lived for the kickoff of college football season. Was the Penn State sex scandal inevitable? Since 1938 and before, trustees, administrators, athletes, alumni, and sports fans have been aware of the culture of cover-up which guards the public respectability of semi-professional college football and assures a continuing flow of gate receipts and glory. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 27, 2012 Take a moment to look in your closet and check the label on your clothes. Look to see where your clothing was manufactured. If youre like a lot of us, its something you havent done before. And chances are, your clothes werent made in the U.S. Apparently, the U.S. Olympic Committee doesnt check the labels, either. There was a big stink raised last week when it was discovered that the Olympic team was wearing clothing that was made in China. Some people were quick to jump on the U.S. Olympic Committee for making this choice. Olympic officials scoffed at the complaints. The clothing, they say, came from an American company, Ralph Lauren, which supports American athletes. The opening and closing ceremony clothes and casual clothes to be worn during the Olympics are all being supplied by Ralph Lauren. Committee officials also pointed out that the Olympics are privately funded, not run by the government as they are in many other countries. In other words, we have to save money. Congress reacted negatively immediately. Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat, said the clothes should be put in a big pile and burned. Rep. John Boehner, a Republican, said that the Olympic Committee should know better. But lets face it. This is just a result of a major problem with America. While our textile industry suffers, people like the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are providing products that meet the needs of the American people. Americans tend to buy things that look good, are durable and are not overly expensive. When the U.S. starts producing items equal with those standards, the tide will turn toward buying American goods. I laugh when I read complaints that one of the presidential candidates led the way in outsourcing jobs to other countries. People who say that know nothing of history. This is nothing new. I remember when my children were young, they used to praise the electronics they had from Sony. To them, that was the best electronic company there was. At their age, they didnt care about jobs or factories or workers or things like that. All they knew is when they turned on a Walkman, it worked perfectly. The foreign invasion of goods extends to almost all walks of life, to all types of products, and has for some time. And were all probably guilty of buying items that were made elsewhere. Sometimes, you cant get stuff made in America. So before we look negatively at the Olympic officials, lets try to fix the problem in America. Lets bring jobs back to our country. Some of it has already been done. Some people drive foreign cars, but they were made at assembly lines here in the U.S. That can be done with a bunch of other products. And lets send some Olympic clothing to the Chinese. Maybe their athletes will wear items that are made in the U.S., and we can cancel each other out.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association has come down hard on Penn State, with multi-million dollar fines, bowl bans, scholarship limits and vacated victories. The question is, who suffers the most? Joe Paterno? Maybe his family is bothered by the statements against the legendary coach, but after all, you cant slander or libel the dead. A persons reputation dies with him. Were sure Joe isnt sitting there listening to all this, either. Jerry Sandusky? Actually, hes been convicted. He probably doesnt care about the Penn State scholarships or other sanctions. Hes probably more worried about some of the guys in the yard getting him alone. Were sure theyre not all Nittany Lions fans. The other men who have been charged with perjury? They have legal problems of their own and probably dont care what the NCAA does to Penn State. The former president and other officials, who are gone but so far face no charges? They just want to get away from there as far as possible. So who does that leave? The new coach and the players, who evidently had nothing to do with all of this, and the current students of the university who dont happen to be football players but will forever be linked to the scandal. In other words, the innocent parties. Of course, those who are suffering the most are the abuse victims, and that should never be pushed aside for football. Everyone is hoping that the scars will heal for these young men. Anyone who takes a woe is me attitude just has to read the grand jury report, realize what these victims went through, and then apologize for worrying more about themselves than the boys. But the other ones we feel sorry for are the innocent players. They are suddenly facing a bleak future at Penn State. The NCAA said they could transfer without penalty, and it might even allow schools that accept Penn State players to exceed the scholarship limit for this year. Among those stars, there are probably a few who have pro football abilities and aspirations. They wont have any problem finding a new school. But what about the borderline players, particularly the seniors, the ones who needed good exposure this season to possibly get drafted. This could be a career-ender for some of them. The players who stay will undoubtedly be outmanned in some, if not all, of their contests, especially if a lot of players leave. Of course, it could work the other way, and if most of the players stay, as the new coach says they will, the team could have something to prove by winning, even if it isnt eligible for a conference title or a bowl game. Theyll get a fond greeting at home, but can you imagine what theyll hear from some of the insensitive fans on the road? One sanction that was not imposed was a TV ban. Naturally, we can see some of the greedy networks scrambling to show Penn State games this fall, expecting high ratings, even if the games arent good. That exposure is good for the players who remain. But as is usually the case, when one public person does something offensive, it has a ripple effect through society in his area. Thats true for Jerry Sandusky. And while Paterno may be guilty of failing to act, the major responsibility for all these problems falls on Sandusky. Hes the guilty one that is being punished, and we hope that the residual effects arent too harsh on those left behind.

Friday, July 27, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 27, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Newborn babies saving peoples lives was the goal back in 1998 when LifeCord got its start as the first public umbilical cord blood bank in the Southeast, and today that hope stretches clear around the globe. LifeCord, which is a program of LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, collects umbilical cord blood donations from eight hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. We are zeroing in on 100. We recently shipped out our 97th cord blood unit for transplant, and so far LifeCord babies have helped patients in 23 states and nine foreign countries, said LifeCord Cellular Therapy Manager Amy Lambert. LifeCord approaches the milestone during July, which is set aside as Cord Blood Awareness Month. Twenty years ago the umbilical cord was considered medical waste. Now, every day somewhere in the world, cord blood is saving lives. Thats because the specialized blood cells found in the cord can be used by patients suffering from leukemia or lymphoma who need marrow transplants. The cord blood acts as a seed to help them grow healthy marrow. It can be stored frozen for nearly 20 years and is already tested, typed and ready for use when it is needed. And the use of cord blood has increased dramatically. According to the National Marrow Donor Program, in 2011 more than 40 percent of transplant patients from racially and ethnically diverse communities received a cord blood transplant. In Florida, babies born at Shands at the University of Florida and North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville, Fla. can donate. There is no charge for donating, and the procedure is simple and safe, said Lambert. Encouraging more parents to donate will further expand the use of cord blood, and more lives will be saved.

Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office.

The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team.

"The Authority's matching grants serve as an excellent opportunity for member governments to leverage limited budgets for carrying out water conservation programs," according to Richard Owen, the Authority's new executive director.

We think it met a real need for local students interested in technology, said Dr. Row Rogacki, IHMC Associate Director. Were already planning next years sessions. The camp focused on the STEM curriculum: science, technology, engineering and math. Campers worked on robot assembly and testing, which included setting goals for their creations (such as programming a robot to navigate a maze without hitting a wall), and using science and math to reach them. The sessions were made possible through the generosity of numerous sponsors and local business partners and organizations. The sponsors enabled 62 local students to advance their understanding of robotics through hands-on experience under the guidance of expert instruction. The lead agency in bringing the camp to Ocala was the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE), a National Science FoundationATE Regional Center of Excellence. FLATE has helped offer summer robotics camps for more than six years in communities across Florida. The camps have grown in popularity, size and complexity through partnering with organizations such as IHMC. FLATE and its executive director, Dr. Marilyn Barger, helped integrate the Robotics Camp with Ocala IHMCs educational outreach efforts. The College of Central Florida provided the camps Lego MindstormTM robots, and Workforce Connection provided laptop computers to create a hands-on learning environment where technology was the star. Campers also visited the Lockheed Martin Ocala Plant to gain perspective on how the miniature robotics system they worked with translates into the real world. The camp instructor, nationally recognized teacher Dr. Gregory Cruz, and his top assistant, Florida Tech graduate engineering student Kyle Fontaine, were critical to the campers progress, as were local high school volunteers who encouraged, guided and applauded the campers efforts. Mackenzie Meiers, a rising fifth-grade camper, summed it up best in her thank you note to the sponsors: This camp was a once-in-a-lifetime week of learning, building and excitement! It has been the thrill of my summer. The Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) is one of the nations premier research organizations with world-class scientists and engineers investigating a broad range of topics related to building technological systems aimed at amplifying and extending human cognitive and perceptual capacities. IHMC headquarters are in Pensacola, Florida and a branch research facility has recently opened in Ocala. Middle schoolers enjoy robotics program Amberjack season to open in GulfGreater amberjack will open for recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1.

In Gulf waters, this means anglers must use circle hooks and have a dehooking device and a venting tool on their vessel. Using these tools will help increase a fishs chance of survival if it is caught and returned to the water. State waters in the Gulf extend from shore to nine nautical miles and in the Atlantic from shore to three nautical miles; federal waters extend from those boundaries to about 200 miles from shore.

The UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service will conduct a homebuyer short course on Aug. 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. each day at the Extension Service, 2232 N.E. Jacksonville Road, Ocala. Register by July 27. Contracts, closing costs, home inspections and mortgage agreements. If these terms make your head spin, youre not alone.

Pre-purchase preparation Break down the steps and tasks associated with the home search and selection. Financing and closing Considering closing costs and the duration of the mortgage agreement, its essential to be an informed consumer. This program addresses the financial aspect of home buying. A certificate of completion will be awarded upon attendance of all four classes. This course satisfies requirements set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the State Housing Initiative Partnership, Habitat for Humanity and other funders. Call 352-671-8400 for more information. The Marion Oaks Democratic Club will meet Monday, Aug. 20 at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. Speaker will be Frank Bruno, a candidate for Florida Senate. At the June 18 meeting, several events took place. Democrats were made aware that they can vote in the non-partisan primary election on Aug. 14. Democratic candidates and nonpartisan candidates for county court judge, and School Board members will be on the ballot. Paul Guilfoil, candidate for Marion County Court Judge was one of the speakers at this meeting. Guilfoil spoke about his 28 years experience as a practicing lawyer in Marion County. He mentioned that the legal system is underfunded so that instead of having a full complement of five judges there have been only four to deal with the mainly family issues cases that come to Marion County courts. Many of the issues are misdemeanors and the family members are usually seen as having just made a mistake. These kinds of cases require a certain degree of empathy on the part of court officers and Guilfoil pointed out that he understands that the common man who comes to these courts is more in need of rehabilitation than punishment and that is taken into consideration. Another speaker at this June meeting was Burt Stephens from the Senior Learning Institute, College of Central Florida, which has been around since 1992 with a mission to stimulate the brain, provide leisure activities, social interaction and learning opportunities for seniors. Mr. Stephens presentation was interesting and informative as he walked us through snippets of courses in history, science, art, French for Tourists, Basic Spanish, literature, computers, the internet, health and wellness. He won favor by saying there are no examinations (unless you choose to seek credits for a degree) and very little costs for books and materials. There is an annual membership fee as well as a shorter six month fee if you do not want to commit for an entire year. You can find information at seniorinstitute@cf.edu or (352) 291-4444 and begin to Celebrate Learning. Also at this meeting members of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club congratulated one of their own, Dorrick Nurse, on his upcoming trip to the United States 2012 Democratic National Convention, in which delegates of the Democratic Party will choose the partys nominees for President and Vice President in the 2012 National Election. The convention is scheduled to be held during the week of Sept. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. Lastly, the decision to cancel the dinner dance that was scheduled for June 23 was made by MODC Board because of a lack of support. We hope no one was inconvenienced and we look forward to your support at our next social event.

These efforts, coupled with changes to our operations, have generated considerable savings. The improved bond rating is a result of work from earlier in the year with Clerk of the Court finance staff. Finance and Utilities leaders worked with Moodys Investor Services and Standard and Poors to evaluate its utility bond rating. This led Moodys to upgrade the utility from A1 to Aa3, while Standard and Poors rated the utility a AA-. When granting the upgrade, Moodys cited good management reflected in improved financial performance and ongoing system consolidation. The new rating allowed the county to obtain an even lower interest rate and changed the lifetime loan savings on the $40 million bond to $4.5 million; the bonds will mature in 2033. We are extremely pleased with the results of the bond sale, said Clerk of the Court Finance Director John Garri. The upgrade of our utility rating, coupled with the high demand for our bonds by investors, further reflects the great job our Utility Department is doing. The savings generated from the bond refinancing will save the county an average of $250,000 per year in debt service costs.

Butch Verrando, one of the candidates and the only one who lives in District 5, said that he was categorically against receiving grants. He was responding to a question concerning funding for domestic violence, health care, child care, services for the mentally challenged and other social services. Those do not fall in the realm of government, he said, adding that there were churches and charities for those services. He said he wouldnt vote to accept grants except for transportation and utilities. That gets our money back. Then he added, There is nothing in the Constitution that says we have to take care of these people. He said there were exceptional charities in Marion County. Business and jobs drew the most attention. Earl Arnett said that one of the things we need to focus on is to make it easier for companies to settle in Marion County. Pat Gabriel also focused on jobs. We need to be more effective in our marketing, and she reeled off a list of the assets in the county. She added, We need to pay special attention to businesses already here. Verrando later chimed in on the recruiting of businesses with something he has said before. Ultimately the guy who makes the decision is the CEO (of a company, he said. What brings business here is the CEO and his family want to live here. He talked about the parks, and said We waste a lot of money on green stuff. In a final summary he added that he was a Constitutional Conservative. I believe in freedom and liberty, I dont believe in taxes. Francine Johannesen wanted to eliminate waste in government, saying, There are always more ways to get blood out of a turnip. She talked about combining some functions with the city. Also speaking at the forum were candidates Mike Amsden and Stan McClain, both incumbents. Their opponents did not attend.

More photos, Pages 24-25 BY MIKE ROPPEL The CERT team at On Top of the World had a drill Sunday to train members and practice a response to an emergency. The members met at the H&R building and were assigned teams and locations to respond to. One person in each team had a Ham radio or cell phone to communicate with. After arriving at their destination team members looked for damage to buildings and personal injury. Upon accessing the homes a report was phoned or radioed to the command center. Even though there was no real property damage or personal injury, the teams reported different types and amounts of damage and personal injury for the practice drill. CERT members wear Emergency Management TShirts and have photo IDs as well as reflective vests and helmets. For additional information about CERT contact Pat Woodbury at 352-854-8718.

Honor Flight donation County utility rates to drop in fallCome autumn, Marion County Utilities customers will start seeing more change in their pockets. The utility will begin implementing rate reductions on Oct. 1. County water customers will see a 7 percent reduction in their monthly bills. Wastewater customers will see their rates cut by 11 percent. The commission is determined to provide financial relief to citizens when opportunities become available, said Marion County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Charlie Stone. Giving these savings back to the public through decreased rates means injecting more disposable income into our community. The utility is able to provide the lower rates due to a combination of an improved bond rating and increased efficiencies. The Utilities department has been working hard to regionalize our operations, removing smaller plants from service and using the newer, more efficient plants, said Marion County Utilities Director Flip PLEASESEEUTILITY, PAGE3 000C248
