COPS stands for Citizens Observer Patrol, and the local volunteer unit, based out of the Sheriffs Southwest District Office, is recruiting new members. COPS members drive around the community, acting as the eyes and ears of the Sheriffs Office, according to coordinator Duane Johnson. Members are asked to drive at least four hours per month, but preferably eight, keeping watch over the various neighborhoods throughout the district. When a member spots something suspicious or a possible crime in progress, he does not intervene but radios for a deputy to come to the scene. They also do vacation checks and maintain the business registry. COPS members are not allowed to carry any sort of weapons while on duty. Some are also part of the Volunteer Emergency Response Team (VERT) and help at accident scenes, road closures, etc. Currently, the Southwest District has 38 members. Johnson said they would like to get up to 50. When asked what it takes to be a member, administrative officer Jack Walsh said, drive, motivation and dedication. Aside from those intangibles, applicants must have driving skills and a Florida drivers license, a clean driving record and no criminal record. An application must be filled out and a background check will be conducted. Applicants must be at least 21 years old. A luncheon will be held Aug. 15 at the Sheriffs district office, sponsored by Bob Evans. Anyone wishing to apply should call either 598-1547, 237-8214 or the Sheriffs district office at 402-6060, preferably before Saturday, Aug. 11. An application can be picked up at the office on State Road 200. One the applicants are approved, they will go through four hours of video training and lectures, and two four-hour ridealongs with training officers. There are also constant two-hour training meetings and videos. Applicants can drive single or in pairs. They are a big help, said Capt. Jim Burton of the Southwest District. We depend a lot on them.

COPS seek additional members Married 70 years Pine Run residents William and Thelma Sutton celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Aug. 7. Friends and family celebrated this special event on Aug. 4. The couple have two children, Linda Brown, On Top of the World, Ocala and Dale Sutton, of Hudson, Florida. They also have five grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. William is a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross having flown 33 missions for the 8th Air Force during World War II. Thelma served her country by working in the factories that manufactured wartime munitions needed for the military. They are faithful members of Friendship Baptist Church where their son-in-law, Randall Brown, is the pastor. The Suttons today. The Suttons in 1942. BY JIM CLARK Editor Get those special black pens out its time to fill out the ballots. The polling places will be open on Tuesday, Aug. 14, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., as Marion County voters join others around the state in the primary election. Several county offices are on the ballot, and some will be decided in this election. For the non-partisan races for School Board and judgeships, this is the final. In School Board District 1, Woody Clymer and Nancy Stacy are facing off, while in District 2, Bob Dobkowski, known as Bobby D, and Carol Ely will square off to fill that seat. For County Judge 3, Leann Mackey-Barnes and Tommy Thompson are the finalists, and for County Judge 4, Paul J. Guilfoil and Robert E. Landt will face the voters in the final. There is a multi-county race for public defender featuring Mike Graves and Bo Samargya. There are also two tax issues on the ballot, both involving the School Board. Everyone can vote in the above races. Countywide offices up for election include sheriff, superintendent of schools and supervisor of elections. All, however, are Republican-only primaries, as there is another candidate waiting in the wings for the November election. For sheriff, Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn will settle the Republican nomination issue. The winner will face Bernie DeCastro of the Constitution Party in November. There is also a write-in candidate qualified, Judson Cauthen Spence Jr. The superintendent of schools race finds three Republicans fighting for the nomination, including school system employees George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner and current School Board member Jackie Porter. The winner of this three-way battle goes on to face Democrat Diana Greene in November. Its time to vote Polls open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. PLEASESEEELECTION PAGE3 Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives met with five other Florida law enforcement agencies to gather facts, photos and videos in a string of at least 17 commercial burglaries in the month of July. Detectives believe the burglars are targeting liquor stores and other businesses near the North Central Florida I-75 corridor. Between Saturday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 31, the suspects smashed or pried open glass doors at liquor stores in St. Cloud, Belleview, Lady Lake, Wildwood and Ocala. While in Marion County, the thieves burglarized a Dairy Queen and a wireless cellphone store. Detectives believe the suspects are two tall males who have been loading their loot into a stolen van. So far, they have used two different vans. One of the vans was recovered by law enforcement and contained numerous items from several burglary locations. Marion County Sheriffs detectives released video from the Dairy Queen burglary, showing one of the suspects wearing bright orange or pink gloves. Both suspects are covered from head to toe in clothing. Anyone with information can contact the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 352-732-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867. Detectives from Ocala, Alachua, Lady Lake, Wildwood, Belleview Police Departments are also asking citizens with information to call.

With holiday trips to England, Crete, France and various other countries, it is obvious that Mick meant what he said to Donna over ten years ago. He has indeed taken her places she has never been. After renting for a couple of years, Mick and Donna moved to Cherrywood in February of this year. Four days after their arrival, Eve Houghtaling drafted Donna into working on the Valentines Day Dance. Soon, both Mick and Donna were a regular part of the active social life here at Cherrywood. When asked what they liked about living here they commented on the friendliness of the residents and on the large number of activities available here. Donna also mentioned how she feels safe in the neighborhood. With their ready smiles and quick sense of humor, both Donna and Mick are easy to talk to and fun to be around. Donna enjoys Tai Chi; Water Aerobics; Bingo; Trivia and all the dances. Mick likes playing pool; poker nights and both share a passion for travel and Bocce Ball. You will see them at most of our functions because as I said before, they may be new to our community but they have quickly become huge assets to our social activities and to our Cherrywood family.From Your ReporterAs youve seen in this column, if you have any questions about Cherrywood, please feel free to ask and I will do my best to get you an answer.

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relationships continue to thrive, but watch for any telltale signs of potential problems. Take needed action now to set things straight before they become troublesome later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your powers of persuasion, backed up, of course, by your considerable expertise, help you establish your case even to the most dubious decisionmakers in your workplace. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might still be a bit reluctant to face up to some less-than-pleasant realities. But the sooner you accept the facts, the sooner you can set about making some needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Expect to make adjustments, even when things seem locked up and ready to go. But cheer up: At least one change could lead to something youve been hoping for. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The success of a recent project should do a lot to boost your self-confidence. You might want to start now to check out ways to make that long-deferred bigger and bolder move. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Ease up on the pressure you might be putting on the new person in your life. It takes time for a budding relationship to blossom. Show more patience and understanding. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You have lots of inner strength in reserve. Use some of it to resist intimidation from those who might try to impose on your good nature for their own reasons. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The good news is that your on-the-job status is improving. The one cautionary note, however, involves a personal situation you might have been ignoring for too long. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Congratulations. Once again, your sharp Sagittarian horse sense helps you work through a complicated situation that would leave most people confused. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Plan on indulging yourself in some wellearned good times through much of the week. Then be prepared to face some thought-provoking issues by the 18th. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Positive factors continue to dominate following a recent change in both your professional and personal lives. Expect to make contact with someone from your past. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Workplace stability allows you to continue making progress on your projects. But dont ignore your personal life. Spend more quality time with those special folks. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the gift for making people feel special. Maybe because you know how special you are. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Read the classifieds parks are huge economic engines, pumping nearly $13 billion in economic activity into gateway communities while supporting 250,000 jobs. For every dollar spent on national parks, four dollars are returned to the economies of gateway communities, says Sean Smith, policy director for the National Parks Conservation Association. More than seven million people visited Washingtons national parks last year alone and national parks nationwide received near record-breaking visitors, despite one of the toughest economies in decades. But perhaps more important, says Smith, is that Mount St. Helens is likely the most iconic American landscape currently not in the national park system [with natural, cultural and historic wonders on par with other parks such as Olympic, Zion, and Crater Lake. He adds that national park status would better protect Mount St. Helens natural treasures from potential housing developments and even a proposed open pit gold mine that would be visible from the main visitor center and would decimate one of the most remote and pristine parts of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest adjacent to Mount St. Helens lower flanks. While the debate continues, MountSt. Helens remains an amazing example of Mother Natures fury and her restorative powers. Whether its a national monument or a national park, its well worth a visit. Dear E arthTalk : Do en v ironmentalists think the E ndangered S pe c ies A c t has b een a su cc ess or failure with regard to prote c ting b iodi v ersity in the U.S.? -R on Mc Knight Trenton NJ While that very question has been a subject of debate already for decades, most environmental advocates are thankful such legislation is in place and proud of their government for upholding such high standards when it comes to preserving rare species of plants and animals. That said, critics of the legislation make some solid points. For starters, only one percent of species (20 out of 2,000) under the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) have recovered sufficiently to qualify for delisting. And the millions of dollars spent on often failed recovery efforts are difficult to justify, especially in these otherwise tough economic times. But even though the vast majority of species protected under the ESA have not recovered doesnt undermine the significance of those speciesbald eagles, gray wolves, and grizzly bear to name a few that have rebounded thanks to forward thinking legislation and wildlife management. Louisa Wilcox of the Natural Resources Defense Council is grateful to the ESA for the continued existence of grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park. After listing, the government cleaned up the massive garbage problems in Yellowstone Park, which reduced the habituation of bears to human foodsa pattern that often leads to grizzly deaths, she reports. Commercial sheep herds were moved out of core grizzly habitat while hundreds of miles of roads on public lands in the region were closed to improve the iconic bears chances for survival. The result: The Yellowstone grizzly population more than doubled while human/bear interactions and incursions by hungry grizzlies onto local ranches have declined. So, by any reckoning, the Yellowstone grizzly bear story is an ESA success, concludes Wilcox. To test whether or not the ESA has been effective on a grander scale, the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), another leading green group, compared for its 2012 On Time, On Target report the actual recovery rate of 110 listed species with the projected recovery rate in their federal recovery plans. The 110 species occupy all 50 U.S. states, include all major taxonomic groups, and have various listing lengths. CBD found that the ESA had a remarkably successful recovery rate: 90 percent of species are recovering at the rate specified by their federal recovery plan, adding: On average, species recovered in 25 years, while their recovery plan predicted 23 yearsa 91 percent timeliness accomplishment. CBD also confirmed the hypothesis that the majority of listed species have not enjoyed protection for long enough to warrant an expectation of recovery yet. percent of species have not yet reached their expected recovery year, reports CBD, adding that on average species have been listed for just 32 years, while their recovery plans required 46 years for success. This recent studys findings echo the results of an earlier (2006) analysis in the Northeastern U.S. that found some 93 percent of federally listed species there were stabilized or improving since getting ESA protection and 82 percent were on track to meet recovery goals. When judged in the light of meeting recovery plan timelines for recovery, the Endangered Species Act is remarkably successful, says CBD. Few laws of any kind can boast a 90 percent success rate.

For information about On Top of the World Communities, visit http://www.OnTopoftheWorldCommuniti es.com Softball LeagueThe summer OTOW Softball league is midway through the season and presently the Wise Way Team is leading the league with a four-game lead and one tie that has to be completed. T he Wise Way Team seems to be rolling along at a good clip and winning those close games with Angelo, their pitcher, who consistently confuses batters and makes good plays on the mound. There are two teams who are close enough to overtake the Wise Way Team, though, as they continue to remain close enough and can make a move at any time. Hot on the heels of the Wise Way Team are the Stone Creek Team and the Florida Eye Team. The team with the better shot is the Stone Creek Team, which is the youngest of the teams in the league and has a good defensive team and plenty of fast runners. The Stone Creek Team has been the pick of the league to take it all, but they have been unable to muster up a string of victories, as the hitting seems to fade in some games. Close behind the Stone Creek team is Florida Eye, but their big hitter, Jeff, is unable to make some of the games, which at times puts a strain on the team because they depend on his bat to get the strong hitting he possesses. Unfortunately, they just lost two of their key players with hamstring pulls that requires some rest periods. This may put a damper on the Florida Eye Team and could start them reeling if they cant fill the gap. Far behind is the Cebert Wealth Team, which just cant seem to get those wins. In quite a few of the games, the Cebert Wealth Team goes into the last inning with a lead, but it seems the team has a lastinning jinx resulting in miscues and letting the lead slip away. Things can, however, change because there are still quite a few games to go, so anything can happen.

St. Helens into a national park? -Esther Monaghan, Boston, MA Mount St. Helens, one of the less prominent yet massive peaks of Washington States Cascade Range, made history on May 18, 1980 by erupting with the force of 500 atomic bombs, devastating 230 square miles of formerly verdant forest and killing 57 people. After considerable debate about what to do with the decimated landscape in the aftermath, Congress sided with scientists advocating it be left alone for research and education. In 1982 Congress created the 172-squaremile Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to be managed by the U.S. Forest Service, which had already been overseeing the forests on the flanks of the mountain as part of the surrounding 1.3 million acre Gifford Pinchot National Forest. But in 2007 federal budget cuts coupled with diminishing visitation led the Forest Service to close one of its two primary visitor centers at Mount St. Helens and scale back on its interpretive and management services. At that point, representatives from surrounding communities and environmental groups and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell came together in an effort to convince Congress to switch Mount St. Helens over to a national park, which would ensure a larger funding pool for visitor services and amenities and ideally spur more visitation, which would in turn mean more business for struggling local communities. Instead of pushing for national park status, however, Cantwell and her Congressional colleagues asked the Forest Service to detail how they plan to protect Mount St. Helens while expanding visitor services and recreational opportunities. The Forest Service subsequently put into place a new plan which, with help from Will Mount St. Helens become a park? A view of Mount ST. Helens in Washington. the recently formed Mount St. Helens Institute, would expand services and explore new options for overnight visitation. Tourism has since grown, but many still want to see Mount St. Helens a national park.

Color RED is free! www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 T hank goodness, the primary election is next week. Maybe for a few weeks the phone calls, the junk mail, all that will stop. I dont mind newspaper ads, of course, and I dont mind commercials on television. When youre watching a program, you expect ads, political or otherwise. What I do resent is the intrusion on my personal time, jumping up from the easy chair to answer the phone, only to hear a recording and see that the call is coming from the 305 area code, or 813, or even out of state. To this date only one candidate has called my home personally, and unfortunately I wasnt there and he had to leave a message. But hes the one Im going to vote for. At least he didnt have a bunch of hired guns doing the calling. I dont like going to the mailbox and picking up seven pieces of mail, including one first-class envelope and six pieces of junk. I dont know which candidates are sending me stuff I pretty much throw it out. I probably should have started a list, using that to decide who I would ignore at the ballot box. Of course, then I might not have anyone left to vote for. Here at the newspaper office we get a lot of material meant for us to publish. I received an anonymous mailing last week supposedly revealing some financial irregularities about one of the County Commission candidates. Sorry, but if you havent got the guts to sign your name, Im not going to waste my reading it all. Then there was the anonymous caller who wanted to give us the scoop on a certain candidate. Unfortunately, his name and number were on the Caller ID. That told me something about his thought process, and I ignored him. As a weekly community newspaper, we dont endorse candidates. Endorsements are believed to have started back around the mid-19th century, when The New York Times urged the election of Mr. Lincoln to the presidency. In those days, people didnt have access to commercials and to the candidates themselves. Newspapers were the conduit between the candidates and the readers there was no other way for people to get information. Now, we try to cover the events at which the candidates appear, but these events are open to the public, and many members of the electorate take advantage by meeting the candidates themselves. While bigger, daily newspapers might feel the need to endorse, smaller community newspapers present the news and the ads, and let you make up your own mind. So just remember, despite how annoyed you might be by the intrusion of the candidates, Aug. 14 is the day to vote. Its your responsibility to choose the people who you feel suit our county the best. See you at the polls. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

I f you follow international news, youve undoubtedly seen many cases where oppressed people finally get the right to vote, and at that first election in their country they turn out in droves. They truly appreciate the chance to choose the people who will make up their government. Here in America, that isnt always the case. While we have the right to vote, there are many who dont take advantage of the privilege, giving many excuses as to why they dont take the few minutes to fill out the ballot. Next Tuesday, Aug. 14, is a big day for dozens of candidates in and around Marion County. Its the date of the primary election. Voter turnout is traditionally low for primary elections, but because of various scenarios this is a big election in the county for races including the sheriff, school superintendent, school board and county commission. There are also two important ballot issues involving taxes, both put on there by the request of the School Board. Each would bring a slight increase in the property tax. Its your county. But if youre not willing to take the initiative of voting, then, frankly, just keep quiet for the next couple of years. As far as we are concerned, if you dont vote, you lose your right to complain. Remember a couple of things. You need a photo ID, and you need to check your recent mailing from the supervisor of elections telling you where to vote. Early voting is also available through Saturday at various locations, listed elsewhere in todays edition. While we generally prefer the traditional voting method of going to the polls on Election Day, we do understand that some people prefer to go to the polls early. If it helps get more voters out, so be it. Either way, please make sure you cast your vote. Its your government. Dont allow someone else to make decisions for you. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont gripe if you dont vote First election season about to end LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Oak Run pavingMarion County did it again. Oak Run had the privilege of the county digging up our thoroughfare twice. Both projects were left in worse condition after the completion. I believe the latest project could have been completed by two or three long-haired, tattooed, ear-ringed teenaged kids with a couple of shovels. Mr. Ghumann, this is ridiculous, a bumpy washboard at best. You have influence with the county. Use it. Rudy Schasel Oak Run residentAmericans stood up If you are a God-fearing American, you have to share my pride in seeing so many stand up for Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, Aug. 1. This wasnt just in Ocala and the rest of Florida, it was throughout most of our nation! It sent a very strong message to the far left mayors of Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco: We dont approve of your telling a business you are not wanted in our town because you believe that marriage is for a man and woman. Just who do you think you are? Where have you been throughout world history? Most of us always shared this definition of marriage and we still do. If you are undecided about the direction our country is headed, look at the politics of these mayors. What will they decide we cant do next time? When will they be telling us where to live, what car to drive, or what our pastors can say from their pulpit? If the liberals stay in power, we havent seen anything yet! They have shown us their vision for America. The Chicago mayor stated that Chicago has a different value system than Chick-fil-A. I want to believe his value system is different from the vast majority of us as evidenced by the super crowds on Aug. 1. We tried more than once to get into Chick-fil-A on College Road, but couldnt even get in the parking lot. We will be back, more than ever. One of the saddest things about Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN You will strain your eyes looking for a significant difference between President Obamas and Mitt Romneys positions on Iran and the prospects of an Israeli attack on the Islamic republic. Both say all options are on the table. All. That includes a fullscale military attack with even nuclear weapons. This isnt alarmism. Irans facilities are undoubtedly well protected. No light force would be capable of taking them out. The Romney campaign created a stir recently when a key foreign-policy adviser, Dan Senor, seemed to up the ante by saying If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that [nuclear weapons capability, the governor would respect that decision. The remark apparently went too far, because Romney had to clarify his position I respect the right of Israel to defend itself, he told CBS. But because Im on foreign soil, I dont want to be creating new foreign policy for my country or in any way to distance myself from the foreign policy of our nation. This indicates that Senor said nothing that Romney wishes to disavow. Senor just said it in the wrong place on foreign soil. Americans have this foolish rule that politics stops at the waters edge. But as the classical-liberal critic of foreign intervention Felix Morley once said, politics stops at the waters edge only when policy stops at the waters edge which, for the American empire, it does not. Romney might differ from Obama over where to paint the red line that Iran may not cross. Obama says Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon. Romney and his old friend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu say Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear capability. That would include possession of uranium and the relevant knowledge. Iran has crossed that line already. Hence the Romney-Netanyahu position sounds marginally more hawkish, though the real difference may not be terribly large. Also, Obama has pleaded with Israel to give economic sanctions against Iran time to work, but Netanyahu said recently he sees no hope in their working. He appears to be itching for war. On the other hand, he doesnt have full support from his military and security establishment. Prominent Israeli officials, active and retired, have said that Iran has not decided to build a weapon and that war with Iran would be stupid. Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Iran would not attack Israel even if it acquired a nuke. It may well be that the war talk is for domestic consumption or is part of a goodcop/bad-cop strategy with the American government. In some ways it doesnt matter. In the past, games of diplomatic chicken have ended in wars no one wanted, and it could happen again. Obama, Romney, and Netanyahu should realize how reckless their course is. Iran justifiably feels besieged. Economic sanctions against the country, which were recently intensified by Obama and Congress, constitute warfare under international law. Moreover, the U.S. and Israeli governments are conducting covert operations against Iran. In other words, the United States and Israel are already at war with the Iranian people. Great hardship is imposed on them, because their ability to trade for consumer goods has been disrupted and the value of their currency undermined. This is where the policy imposed by the humane Obama and supported by Romney has brought the world. And why? They will tell you that Iran must not have a nuclear weapon. But there is no evidence that Iran is developing one. Its religious leader has forsworn such weapons, and the countrys uranium is under the close watch of the International Atomic Energy Agency; that is more than one can say about Israel, which has hundreds of nukes and refuses to join Iran in signing the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. War with Iran would be a disaster for everyone except the war profiteers. Preventing it must be a priority.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.

this is our liberal media taking the side of these mayors. Their reporting minimized the crowds that filled Chick-fil-A all day long, they wanted to talk to the gay employees to see how their feelings were hurt by his believing in traditional marriage. All this makes we wonder just how far we have gone toward destroying the very moral backbone of America. As Ronald Reagan said, If we ever forget we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under. I have said it before and it is becoming more and more evident with each passing day. What America do you want? Its bigger than the economy or any one issue, its about God continuing to bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala CompromiseOK, OK, OK. You want compromise? Here it is: When liberals use their scare tactic, firing police, firefighters, and teachers, this is our counter offer: 1. We will trade one police officer for 5 TSA agents. 2. One firefighter for 5 EPA (Agenda 21) agents. 3. One teacher for 5 Obama czars. The price is escalating. We want a bang for our buck. 4. One Social Security check for 10 welfare leeches. 5. One Medicare Card for 100 illegal aliens. 6. One socialist country for one free country. 7. We are honest about what we want, and what we are trying to do. 8. What can we offer to get a little transparency from the opposition? 9. We play fair. 10. We could go on all day. What does the opposition have to offer? D.I.

In these recipes, mayo, high-calorie dressings and heavy sauces get swapped out for creamy guacamole or flavorful fat-free salsas. Swaps like these make it easy to enjoy your favorite recipes even when youre cutting back on fat and calories. All-natural and preservative-free Wholly Guacamole brings a whole new dimension of tastiness to Asian Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Fettuccini and it cuts down on the bad fats typically found in these dishes. The Salsa Salmon recipe gets a healthful zip of flavor from Wholly Salsa and you can make it as spicy as you like. Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat: Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs. Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich. Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner. Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com. Grilled Chicken Fettuccini Yield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat. Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 min utes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow direc tions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Saut pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese. Smallchanges makeabig difference EnjoyGuac AnyTime YouWantIts not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados arent always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water. WhatsSoGreat AboutAvocados?About 75 percent of an avocados calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados: Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Are rich in vitamins B, E and K. Are high in fiber compared to other fruits including 25 percent soluble fiber. Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free. Salsa Salmon Yield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (its better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375F. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in an oven-proof dish. Divide salsa evenly, spoon over salmon steaks and scatter olives on top. Top evenly with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (or recommended cooking time on salmon package). Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Asian Chicken Salad Yield: 3 servings Juice from half a lime 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 2/3 cup Wholly Guacamole 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 5-ounce package spring salad mix 1/4 cup red onion, diced 1/4 cup tomato, diced 1/2 of a 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chopped 3 grilled chicken breasts Crispy chow mein noodles, for garnish Add lime juice, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, sesame oil, guacamole, rice wine vinegar, salt, water and soy sauce to blender. Blend until uniform. Place dressing in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Toss salad mix, onion, tomato, oranges, dressing and 2 table spoons rough-chopped cilantro in a bowl. Divide salad between 3 plates and top with sliced grilled chicken and chow mein noodles. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 small businesses realize that is all that is left after 28 years of shipping our jobs to other countries. Lets face it, the number one priority for business is profit. That is a proper goal when you consider that the investors and stock holders of these companies are presently receiving the best of the best for their efforts. We must now question our priorities that resulted in huge profits for these businesses and high unemployment for the American workers. In relatively just a few short years we have gone from the greatest manufacturing country in the world that paid good wages to our American workers to where we are now, a country where minimum wage is our new goal. Since the 1970s, corporations have been moving American businesses to foreign countries without any thought except profit for their share holders. Creating good paying American jobs should not be just our goal but should be a priority for small and large businesses supported by our government.

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I t is funny where you pick up an idea. I know I was not born with a truck full of ideas like some people. Take, for example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has more ideas than you can shake a stick at, and believe me; I have shaken many a stick at her, behind her back, of course. I have to scrap around for an idea and then when I do find one I am so exhausted from the search that I am not sure what to do with it. Then an idea comes looking for me. That is a strange phenomenon. I was watching the news with my wife when we heard the lead story of the day about the Chick-fil-A appreciation day. Im not sure I know all the political ins and outs of that sort of thing. Everything seems to have some kind of political overtone to it these days. What was once a matter of morality has become a matter of policy. Politics have invaded every aspect of our life, and I am so looking forward to heaven where, someone told me and I cannot reveal the source, but the word is out, there are no politics in heaven. Whenever you have an opportunity to go out and buy some chicken, I say take it. It was not hard to convince my better half to go out for supper. We do not do it too much anymore. What with the traffic and the finances, it hardly seems worthwhile. That is why I always brag on my wifes cooking. Oh, boy, I will say after a meal, you cant get anything this good at some restaurants. She smiles, but I suspect she knows what I am saying. Well, we did try to go to Chick-fil-A but we could not get within 17 blocks of it. It seems everybody and their third cousin was out getting chicken for supper. Oh well, you cannot participate in everything, but at least we tried. As we circled the block for the 19th time, the idea came to me. If we can have a Chick-fil-A appreciation day because the head of the company said he believed in some traditional values, then why cant I? I believe in everything traditional. I am the most traditional person you will ever meet. Before there was a me, there was not much that was traditional. I go back so far I can remember when dirt was clean. I want the whole world to know that I believe in tradition and I am not just fiddling on the roof. I know it is old fashioned but I believe in the Bible. If it is in the Bible, I believe it, although I must confess I do not understand everything in the Bible. But then, nobody understands everything in their world. The smartest person knows he does not know everything. I built my life upon the values stressed in the Bible and I take it as the Word of God. I believe in singing hymns in church. Most people in America have never heard a hymn let alone singing one in a congregational setting. If you would go to the average person on the street corner and ask what their favorite hymn was, they would not know what you are talking about. I know tradition is oldfashioned, but I still embrace it. If it is traditional, I probably believe it. Some people believe that if it is new, it is OK and if it is old, throw it away. Experience teaches us that it is the exact opposite. Take medicine for example. Sure, many people have benefited from modern advancements in medicine. I am appreciative of every advancement. But then, if medicine has made such inroads into our culture why are more and more people sick? Why are the hospitals full and overflowing? Why are there not enough doctors to take care of all of the sick? I am thankful for what medicine has done, but for every cure it achieves, three more diseases pop up sticking out their tongue. Yes, I believe in tradition. Most people are traditional in many areas of their life. Do you realize that it was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to drink water? It was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to go to sleep at night To get up in the morning And the list goes on and on. Those things, which are traditional, are those things that have endured the wearing element of time. In light of all of this traditional head-wagging, I want to propose another appreciation day. This coming Sunday I declare it to be Local Church Appreciation Day. Everybody who believes in traditional values will show up at the church of their choice and make their vote count. I know it will be a shock and we run the danger that many church ceilings will cave in, but I think it is worth the risk. Of course, there is the possibility that when many pastors see their sanctuary filled with people they will pass out in sheer shock. In the meantime, I am going to stick to what the Bible says here regardless of what happens. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV). Every Sunday should be local Church Appreciation Day.Rev. James L.

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE PRESIDENTS CLUB By Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy The Presidents Club, like so much else, was founded by George Washington who wisely decided, after two terms, to be a former president rather than president for life. As the club grew it defied all expectations in that former presidents talked to each other. And when they couldnt talk to each other, they studied each other Authors Gibbs and Duffy write, If the Presidents Club had a seal, around the ring would be three words: operation, competition, and consolation. On the one hand, the presidents have powerful motives personal and patrioticto help one another succeed and comfort one another when they fail. They are one anothers peers; who else can really judge them? They share a unique bond as presidents. And its not surprising that so many of them are drawn to Lincoln the one who started lowest, rose highest, faced the great test, and triumphed. Eisenhower identified with him to such an extent that he bought a farm in Gettysburg and painted a portrait of Lincoln. As Kennedy flew home from his grueling summit with Khrushchev in June 1961 he dropped a slip of paper on the floor. It was a Lincoln quote: I know there is a Godand I see a storm coming. If He has a place for me I believe I am ready. And who can forget the footage of Nixon showing up at 4:30 a.m. in the wake of the Kent State shooting and to the horror of scrambling Secret Service men. Gossip, snapshots of unlikely presidential friendships B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Much of the book is gossipy but the snapshots of unlikely friendships are fascinating. Ike and Truman head to Blair House for a drink together after John, F. Kennedys funeral; Ford and Clinton golf together in Vail; Ford and Carter fly together to Cairo to honor the slain Anwar Sadat; and Bill Clinton mourns the death of Richard Nixon who hed grown close to and whose counsel he had valued. There is much of interest here even if the selection for the 17 chapters is a bit puzzling: seven devoted to Nixon; four to the Bushes; three each to Reagan, Ford, and Johnson; two to Eisenhower, and one each to Truman, Carter, Clinton and Obama. History buffs and news junkiesthis ones for you. Hospice volunteers neededVolunteers Needed. One or two hours can be a blessing to our patients and families receiving hospice care.

If you are interested in becoming an Odyssey Hospice, Bedside Blessing Volunteer, please contact, Laura Roweton @ 352-622-9331 or lroweton@odsyhealth.com A ugust 26 is known as Womens Equality Day. On that date in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. Social Security treats men and women equally. Men and women with identical earnings histories are treated exactly the same. However, there are things women in particular should know about Social Security. Although treated equally by Social Security, there are trends and differences in lifestyle that can affect benefits. For example, women tend to care for many people: spouses, children, and parents. Taking time away from the workplace to care for a newborn child or aging parent can have an impact on your future Social Security benefits. Also, despite significant strides through the years, women are more likely to earn less over a lifetime than men. Women are less often covered by private retirement plans, and they are more dependent on Social Security in their retirement years. And, women tend to live about five years longer than men, which means more years depending on Social Security and other income or savings. If a woman is married to a man who earns significantly more than she does, it is likely she will qualify for a larger benefit amount on his record than on her own. Want to learn more? Visit our Womens page at www.socialsecurity.gov/wo men. Follow the link on that page to our publication, What Every Woman Should Know. You can read it online, print a copy, or listen to it on audio. We provide alternate media as well to reach as many women as possible and to provide information the way youd like to receive it. Learning about your future Social Security benefits and how men and women are treated just the same in the eyes of Social Security: what better way to celebrate Womens Equality Day?

Reading VolunteersThe Oak Run Volunteer Reading Group is still short of readers for the upcoming school year. We visit Marion Oaks Elementary and Sunrise Elementary 12 mornings (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) during the school year for about an hour and read to children in kindergarten through third grades. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you choose which book youd like to read. You are escorted by two of the children to their classroom, and the reading only takes about ten to twenty minutes, depending on how involved you get with the children. They love it, and its very gratifying to spend time with them. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Please think about it, and if youre interested call Carla Wuebben at 352-854-6461 to sign up or for more information. Carpooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join. TroubadoursOur Oak Run Troubadours music group is starting to prepare for the Christmas tree trim. It is always exciting to sing the Showcase of Stars performs at Palm Grove on Aug. 18 O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE14 O n this coming Monday exactly 70 years ago, Disneys movie Bambi opened at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. It was the first film to realistically portray cartoon animals, so much so that a group of animals celebrate every year at an exclusive and expensive restaurant. Last year when the animals were brought the bill, this is how they responded. The skunk said, Dont look at me, I only have a scent. The gopher said, Sorry, but Ive been in a hole. The porcupine was thinking, Which one can I stick for the check? The groundhog said, If you let me go I shadow you a favor. The duck said, Just put it on my bill. The pelican complained, My bill is much too large. The sardine said, I cant pay. My boss called and Ive been canned. The squid stated he would have signed a check, but he was out of ink. The deer said, I had a buck last week and Im expecting a little doe soon. The ram said, I was expecting ewe to pay. The rhinoceros said: Dont worry. When the waiter comes, Ill just charge it. The cuckoo said, I cant. I lost my nest egg. The pigeon said, I can only make a deposit right now. The chicken, in a foul mood, laid it on the line, I think youre all so cheep. The bumblebee said, Buzz off. The grizzly said, Im barely getting along. The koala said, And Im just a little bare right now. The elephant said, I left what I had in my trunk. The manx cat said, I know youve probably heard this tail before, but Im a little short. The dachshund said, Im very short, and Ive got be to getting a long. The frog said, Ive only got one greenback. The snake said, Its hiss turn to pay. The ferret said, Its none of my business. The turtle said, I shell pay next time. The chameleon was nowhere to be seen. The sponge said, I cant absorb the cost. The amoeba said, Ive got to split now. The snail said, I cant shell out. The tapeworm said, I am flat broke today. The mollusks just clammed up. The goose said, Im down on my luck. The cow said, Youll have to ask one of the udders. I got no mooo-lah. The mule asked if he would get a kick-back. The kangaroo said, I left home with an empty pouch. The dolphin said, I didnt leave my wallet at home on porpoise. The electric eel was asked if he could charge it. He answered, Dont be shocked, but my account is not current. The owl asked, Whooo? Me? The giraffe said, It just is too high for me. The beaver got up to leave and said, Ill be damned if Ill pay. Youll have to ask one of the otters. But its been nice gnawing you. Finally the lion said, Im not a cheetah. Ill pay it. Ive still got my pride. Deer comments I know a parent who wouldnt take his kids to see Bambi because it was a stag movie. The wife who went deer hunting with her husband is very proud that she was able to shoot a fine buck as well as her husband. Hunters have killed many deer only because they needed a few bucks. A runner collided with a deer during a high-school cross-country meet in Wisconsin. The deer was listed as a Jane Doe. You take a deer census by going doe to doe. When the farmers wife ran away with a traveling salesman, she left him a John Deere letter. Shoppers at a Goodwill store were surprised when a deer crashed through a store window. Several people protected it from frightened shoppers; they were trying to save a buck.Eye for a huntTwo men were out hunting when they picked up the tracks of a deer. They soon caught up with it, and it was obvious why it had been so easy to find. It had a terrible infection over its left eye, which it couldnt even see out of. One man started to take aim with his shotgun, but his friend begged him to stop. He said, Cant you see thats a bad eye deer?

Way Off BroadwayA flyer was recently sent to all Oak Runners in the August Oak Run Newsletter promoting our October play, Squad Room Blues. The flyer contained the show dates of Oct. 12, 13 and 14 and all of the public ticket sales dates were set forth. It did not however indicate the price of tickets which are $7 for reserved seats and $5 for general admission seats. As a matter of information, we could not maintain this low ticket price if it were not for the sale of advertising in our play program. Without this revenue ticket prices would double so we urge you to patronize the business and professional people who support us year in and year out. In various periodicals over the past two months we have indicated the need to purchase reserved seats early to get the best seating. While we havent had our first public ticket sale yet, a great many have been sold. Our members purchase tickets for their families, friends and neighbors. Past audiences who avail themselves of the direct telephone purchase of tickets by calling Linda Noel at 352-873 9908 have already begun making their purchases. So once again we urge you to act swiftly in buying yours at one of the public sales and/or by phoning Linda in the event you cant get to a sale.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 A Resident Asked When your humble reporter gets a question from one of our readers, he goes out of his way to find the answer and share it with the community. This weeks question was, How did the various sections of the Cherrywood subdivision get their nicknames? For example, the area by the clubhouse is called The Mainland; the neighborhood on the opposite side of 62nd from the clubhouse is referred to as The Island. Other areas include The Outback and the Prairie etc. After much research, well really not that much, I found two answers; both very similar. The first came from anonymous sources that related the following. As the various locations of our community were being developed, a group of the original buyers into Cherrywood were sitting around the pool one evening having a few adult beverages. In order to describe what part of the community they were from, they devised these various names. The Mainland was that area around the clubhouse and because the homes on the east side of 62nd Avenue were separated from that part of Cherrywood; they became known as the Island. Other descriptions included The Prairie; North Island and the Horse Farm. The names stuck and ever since then, the different parts of Cherrywood have been called by those names. A second more detailed answer came from Fred OHern. He provided the following information. Cherrywood originally developed outward from the entry off of 103rd Street. The next state of development was the other side of the easement set aside for 62nd thus it was entirely cut off from the Mainland thus it became the Island. Then 60th/62 was punched through from 200 to 103rd Street and l00th Street was paved. It became the Prairie. The north part of the Island (north from 103rd Loop was developed beginning in 2002, thus North Island. The final bit was the corner where Chris had a paddock for horses, thus the Horse Farm Because all of the various models of homes are located throughout the Cherrywood community, there is no social or economic attachment to any of the names. We are one cohesive community who just live in various locations designated for convenience by nicknames. I hope this answers the readers question. If one person was wondering about the nomenclature of Cherrywood, then I bet there were others of you who were also curious about this subject. Our community has some original thinkers with great ideas and keen senses of humor it seems. So I send this answer from the Prairie of Cherrywood. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature residents who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature relative newcomers, Donna and Mick James. Mick and Donna hail from Marlboro, New York, where they lived while Mick was a computer analyst for IBM. He specialized in disaster recovery of data for many fortune five hundred companies. When I commented that if I should have any computer problems I would come and see him he laughing let me know that he hated computers. Managing the restoration of data and being a computer analyst occupied much of Micks time as he spent 30 years at IBM. Originally from England, Mick has worked with the Merchant Marine as a head waiter in the first class section of a cruise liner and was a licensed fork lift operator back in his home country. He came to America from England on holiday in 1978. He liked it so much that he stayed and became an American Citizen. Mick still has relatives in CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 England including his Mom, June, and a brother Roger in Southampton. Another brother, Allen was tragically killed in an auto accident in New Zealand in 1990. His son Colin, from a previous marriage, lives in Newburgh, New York, and works for Jet Blue Airlines. Back in December of 2001 mutual friends introduced Donna and Mick at a party. They managed to stay apart after that first introduction for an entire nine hours. Mick invited Donna for a walk on the beach and she asked, Should I bring my bathing suit? He smiles when he relates the story because while December in New York is hardly a time to go swimming, the prospect of her bringing a bathing suit did intrigue him. When Mick proposed, he told Donna, Stick with me and Ill take you places youve never been. He has kept that promise, Donna smiles as she relates the story. Less than a year later, the two were married. They are looking forward to their 10th anniversary on October 21st of this year. Donna comes from a large family. She has an older brother Mark who lives in Wappingers Falls, New York, and three younger sisters; Chris who lives in Taylorville Utah and Dane who resides in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Another sister Katy also still lives in Donnas home town of Wappingers Falls. Graduating from Roy C. Ketcham High School in Poughkeepsie, New York, Donna entered the nursing program at Hudson River Psychiatric Center. She graduated as an RN and went into coronary care medical nursing. Continuing her career and her education, Donna received a B.A. from the University of Utah in Anthropology. Upon returning to New York she received a Masters Degree in Anthropology from New York State University at Albany. Working at Mount Saint Marys College in Newburgh, she served as Academic Advisor to Special Needs Students and also taught introduction to Anthropology. Prior to her retirement, Donna served as office manager for the Hudson Valley Physical Therapy where she specialized in accounting; billing and also served as a receptionist. Keeping his promise, Mick has shared three trips to Nicaragua with Donna.

Number 13 in the Spring 2012 Brochure is Moon Over Buffalo at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre on Oct. 27.

Way Off BroadwayA flyer was recently sent to all Oak Runners in the August Oak Run Newsletter promoting our October play, Squad Room Blues. The flyer contained the show dates of Oct. 12, 13 and 14 and all of the public ticket sales dates were set forth. It did not however indicate the price of tickets which are $7 for reserved seats and $5 for general admission seats. As a matter of information, we could not maintain this low ticket price if it were not for the sale of advertising in our play program. Without this revenue ticket prices would double so we urge you to patronize the business and professional people who support us year in and year out. In various periodicals over the past two months we have indicated the need to purchase reserved seats early to get the best seating. While we havent had our first public ticket sale yet, a great many have been sold. Our members purchase tickets for their families, friends and neighbors. Past audiences who avail themselves of the direct telephone purchase of tickets by calling Linda Noel at 352-873 9908 have already begun making their purchases. So once again we urge you to act swiftly in buying yours at one of the public sales and/or by phoning Linda in the event you cant get to a sale.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 A Resident Asked When your humble reporter gets a question from one of our readers, he goes out of his way to find the answer and share it with the community. This weeks question was, How did the various sections of the Cherrywood subdivision get their nicknames? For example, the area by the clubhouse is called The Mainland; the neighborhood on the opposite side of 62nd from the clubhouse is referred to as The Island. Other areas include The Outback and the Prairie etc. After much research, well really not that much, I found two answers; both very similar. The first came from anonymous sources that related the following. As the various locations of our community were being developed, a group of the original buyers into Cherrywood were sitting around the pool one evening having a few adult beverages. In order to describe what part of the community they were from, they devised these various names. The Mainland was that area around the clubhouse and because the homes on the east side of 62nd Avenue were separated from that part of Cherrywood; they became known as the Island. Other descriptions included The Prairie; North Island and the Horse Farm. The names stuck and ever since then, the different parts of Cherrywood have been called by those names. A second more detailed answer came from Fred OHern. He provided the following information. Cherrywood originally developed outward from the entry off of 103rd Street. The next state of development was the other side of the easement set aside for 62nd thus it was entirely cut off from the Mainland thus it became the Island. Then 60th/62 was punched through from 200 to 103rd Street and l00th Street was paved. It became the Prairie. The north part of the Island (north from 103rd Loop was developed beginning in 2002, thus North Island. The final bit was the corner where Chris had a paddock for horses, thus the Horse Farm Because all of the various models of homes are located throughout the Cherrywood community, there is no social or economic attachment to any of the names. We are one cohesive community who just live in various locations designated for convenience by nicknames. I hope this answers the readers question. If one person was wondering about the nomenclature of Cherrywood, then I bet there were others of you who were also curious about this subject. Our community has some original thinkers with great ideas and keen senses of humor it seems. So I send this answer from the Prairie of Cherrywood. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature residents who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature relative newcomers, Donna and Mick James. Mick and Donna hail from Marlboro, New York, where they lived while Mick was a computer analyst for IBM. He specialized in disaster recovery of data for many fortune five hundred companies. When I commented that if I should have any computer problems I would come and see him he laughing let me know that he hated computers. Managing the restoration of data and being a computer analyst occupied much of Micks time as he spent 30 years at IBM. Originally from England, Mick has worked with the Merchant Marine as a head waiter in the first class section of a cruise liner and was a licensed fork lift operator back in his home country. He came to America from England on holiday in 1978. He liked it so much that he stayed and became an American Citizen. Mick still has relatives in CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 England including his Mom, June, and a brother Roger in Southampton. Another brother, Allen was tragically killed in an auto accident in New Zealand in 1990. His son Colin, from a previous marriage, lives in Newburgh, New York, and works for Jet Blue Airlines. Back in December of 2001 mutual friends introduced Donna and Mick at a party. They managed to stay apart after that first introduction for an entire nine hours. Mick invited Donna for a walk on the beach and she asked, Should I bring my bathing suit? He smiles when he relates the story because while December in New York is hardly a time to go swimming, the prospect of her bringing a bathing suit did intrigue him. When Mick proposed, he told Donna, Stick with me and Ill take you places youve never been. He has kept that promise, Donna smiles as she relates the story. Less than a year later, the two were married. They are looking forward to their 10th anniversary on October 21st of this year. Donna comes from a large family. She has an older brother Mark who lives in Wappingers Falls, New York, and three younger sisters; Chris who lives in Taylorville Utah and Dane who resides in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Another sister Katy also still lives in Donnas home town of Wappingers Falls. Graduating from Roy C. Ketcham High School in Poughkeepsie, New York, Donna entered the nursing program at Hudson River Psychiatric Center. She graduated as an RN and went into coronary care medical nursing. Continuing her career and her education, Donna received a B.A. from the University of Utah in Anthropology. Upon returning to New York she received a Masters Degree in Anthropology from New York State University at Albany. Working at Mount Saint Marys College in Newburgh, she served as Academic Advisor to Special Needs Students and also taught introduction to Anthropology. Prior to her retirement, Donna served as office manager for the Hudson Valley Physical Therapy where she specialized in accounting; billing and also served as a receptionist. Keeping his promise, Mick has shared three trips to Nicaragua with Donna.

Reading VolunteersThe Oak Run Volunteer Reading Group is still short of readers for the upcoming school year. We visit Marion Oaks Elementary and Sunrise Elementary 12 mornings (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) during the school year for about an hour and read to children in kindergarten through third grades. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you choose which book youd like to read. You are escorted by two of the children to their classroom, and the reading only takes about ten to twenty minutes, depending on how involved you get with the children. They love it, and its very gratifying to spend time with them. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Please think about it, and if youre interested call Carla Wuebben at 352-854-6461 to sign up or for more information. Carpooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join. TroubadoursOur Oak Run Troubadours music group is starting to prepare for the Christmas tree trim.

It was the first film to realistically portray cartoon animals, so much so that a group of animals celebrate every year at an exclusive and expensive restaurant. Last year when the animals were brought the bill, this is how they responded. The skunk said, Dont look at me, I only have a scent. The gopher said, Sorry, but Ive been in a hole. The porcupine was thinking, Which one can I stick for the check? The groundhog said, If you let me go I shadow you a favor. The duck said, Just put it on my bill. The pelican complained, My bill is much too large. The sardine said, I cant pay. My boss called and Ive been canned. The squid stated he would have signed a check, but he was out of ink. The deer said, I had a buck last week and Im expecting a little doe soon. The ram said, I was expecting ewe to pay. The rhinoceros said: Dont worry. When the waiter comes, Ill just charge it. The cuckoo said, I cant. I lost my nest egg. The pigeon said, I can only make a deposit right now. The chicken, in a foul mood, laid it on the line, I think youre all so cheep. The bumblebee said, Buzz off. The grizzly said, Im barely getting along. The koala said, And Im just a little bare right now. The elephant said, I left what I had in my trunk. The manx cat said, I know youve probably heard this tail before, but Im a little short. The dachshund said, Im very short, and Ive got be to getting a long. The frog said, Ive only got one greenback. The snake said, Its hiss turn to pay. The ferret said, Its none of my business. The turtle said, I shell pay next time. The chameleon was nowhere to be seen. The sponge said, I cant absorb the cost. The amoeba said, Ive got to split now. The snail said, I cant shell out. The tapeworm said, I am flat broke today. The mollusks just clammed up. The goose said, Im down on my luck. The cow said, Youll have to ask one of the udders. I got no mooo-lah. The mule asked if he would get a kick-back. The kangaroo said, I left home with an empty pouch. The dolphin said, I didnt leave my wallet at home on porpoise. The electric eel was asked if he could charge it. He answered, Dont be shocked, but my account is not current. The owl asked, Whooo? Me? The giraffe said, It just is too high for me. The beaver got up to leave and said, Ill be damned if Ill pay. Youll have to ask one of the otters. But its been nice gnawing you. Finally the lion said, Im not a cheetah. Ill pay it. Ive still got my pride. Deer comments I know a parent who wouldnt take his kids to see Bambi because it was a stag movie. The wife who went deer hunting with her husband is very proud that she was able to shoot a fine buck as well as her husband. Hunters have killed many deer only because they needed a few bucks. A runner collided with a deer during a high-school cross-country meet in Wisconsin. The deer was listed as a Jane Doe. You take a deer census by going doe to doe. When the farmers wife ran away with a traveling salesman, she left him a John Deere letter. Shoppers at a Goodwill store were surprised when a deer crashed through a store window. Several people protected it from frightened shoppers; they were trying to save a buck.Eye for a huntTwo men were out hunting when they picked up the tracks of a deer. They soon caught up with it, and it was obvious why it had been so easy to find. It had a terrible infection over its left eye, which it couldnt even see out of. One man started to take aim with his shotgun, but his friend begged him to stop. He said, Cant you see thats a bad eye deer?

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE PRESIDENTS CLUB By Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy The Presidents Club, like so much else, was founded by George Washington who wisely decided, after two terms, to be a former president rather than president for life. As the club grew it defied all expectations in that former presidents talked to each other. And when they couldnt talk to each other, they studied each other Authors Gibbs and Duffy write, If the Presidents Club had a seal, around the ring would be three words: operation, competition, and consolation. On the one hand, the presidents have powerful motives personal and patrioticto help one another succeed and comfort one another when they fail. They are one anothers peers; who else can really judge them? They share a unique bond as presidents. And its not surprising that so many of them are drawn to Lincoln the one who started lowest, rose highest, faced the great test, and triumphed. Eisenhower identified with him to such an extent that he bought a farm in Gettysburg and painted a portrait of Lincoln. As Kennedy flew home from his grueling summit with Khrushchev in June 1961 he dropped a slip of paper on the floor. It was a Lincoln quote: I know there is a Godand I see a storm coming. If He has a place for me I believe I am ready. And who can forget the footage of Nixon showing up at 4:30 a.m. in the wake of the Kent State shooting and to the horror of scrambling Secret Service men. Gossip, snapshots of unlikely presidential friendships B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Much of the book is gossipy but the snapshots of unlikely friendships are fascinating. Ike and Truman head to Blair House for a drink together after John, F. Kennedys funeral; Ford and Clinton golf together in Vail; Ford and Carter fly together to Cairo to honor the slain Anwar Sadat; and Bill Clinton mourns the death of Richard Nixon who hed grown close to and whose counsel he had valued. There is much of interest here even if the selection for the 17 chapters is a bit puzzling: seven devoted to Nixon; four to the Bushes; three each to Reagan, Ford, and Johnson; two to Eisenhower, and one each to Truman, Carter, Clinton and Obama. History buffs and news junkiesthis ones for you. Hospice volunteers neededVolunteers Needed. One or two hours can be a blessing to our patients and families receiving hospice care. Sitting with patients, while caregivers run errands, or go to Dr. appts. can be so rewarding and fulfilling. If you are interested in becoming an Odyssey Hospice, Bedside Blessing Volunteer, please contact, Laura Roweton @ 352-622-9331 or lroweton@odsyhealth.com A ugust 26 is known as Womens Equality Day. On that date in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. Social Security treats men and women equally. Men and women with identical earnings histories are treated exactly the same. However, there are things women in particular should know about Social Security. Although treated equally by Social Security, there are trends and differences in lifestyle that can affect benefits. For example, women tend to care for many people: spouses, children, and parents. Taking time away from the workplace to care for a newborn child or aging parent can have an impact on your future Social Security benefits. Also, despite significant strides through the years, women are more likely to earn less over a lifetime than men. Women are less often covered by private retirement plans, and they are more dependent on Social Security in their retirement years. And, women tend to live about five years longer than men, which means more years depending on Social Security and other income or savings. If a woman is married to a man who earns significantly more than she does, it is likely she will qualify for a larger benefit amount on his record than on her own. Want to learn more? Visit our Womens page at www.socialsecurity.gov/wo men. Follow the link on that page to our publication, What Every Woman Should Know. You can read it online, print a copy, or listen to it on audio. We provide alternate media as well to reach as many women as possible and to provide information the way youd like to receive it. Learning about your future Social Security benefits and how men and women are treated just the same in the eyes of Social Security: what better way to celebrate Womens Equality Day?

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I t is funny where you pick up an idea. I know I was not born with a truck full of ideas like some people. Take, for example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has more ideas than you can shake a stick at, and believe me; I have shaken many a stick at her, behind her back, of course. I have to scrap around for an idea and then when I do find one I am so exhausted from the search that I am not sure what to do with it. Then an idea comes looking for me. That is a strange phenomenon. I was watching the news with my wife when we heard the lead story of the day about the Chick-fil-A appreciation day. Im not sure I know all the political ins and outs of that sort of thing. Everything seems to have some kind of political overtone to it these days. What was once a matter of morality has become a matter of policy. Politics have invaded every aspect of our life, and I am so looking forward to heaven where, someone told me and I cannot reveal the source, but the word is out, there are no politics in heaven. Whenever you have an opportunity to go out and buy some chicken, I say take it. It was not hard to convince my better half to go out for supper. We do not do it too much anymore. What with the traffic and the finances, it hardly seems worthwhile. That is why I always brag on my wifes cooking. Oh, boy, I will say after a meal, you cant get anything this good at some restaurants. She smiles, but I suspect she knows what I am saying. Well, we did try to go to Chick-fil-A but we could not get within 17 blocks of it. It seems everybody and their third cousin was out getting chicken for supper. Oh well, you cannot participate in everything, but at least we tried. As we circled the block for the 19th time, the idea came to me. If we can have a Chick-fil-A appreciation day because the head of the company said he believed in some traditional values, then why cant I? I believe in everything traditional. I am the most traditional person you will ever meet. Before there was a me, there was not much that was traditional. I go back so far I can remember when dirt was clean. I want the whole world to know that I believe in tradition and I am not just fiddling on the roof. I know it is old fashioned but I believe in the Bible. If it is in the Bible, I believe it, although I must confess I do not understand everything in the Bible. But then, nobody understands everything in their world. The smartest person knows he does not know everything. I built my life upon the values stressed in the Bible and I take it as the Word of God. I believe in singing hymns in church. Most people in America have never heard a hymn let alone singing one in a congregational setting. If you would go to the average person on the street corner and ask what their favorite hymn was, they would not know what you are talking about. I know tradition is oldfashioned, but I still embrace it. If it is traditional, I probably believe it. Some people believe that if it is new, it is OK and if it is old, throw it away. Experience teaches us that it is the exact opposite. Take medicine for example. Sure, many people have benefited from modern advancements in medicine. I am appreciative of every advancement. But then, if medicine has made such inroads into our culture why are more and more people sick? Why are the hospitals full and overflowing? Why are there not enough doctors to take care of all of the sick? I am thankful for what medicine has done, but for every cure it achieves, three more diseases pop up sticking out their tongue. Yes, I believe in tradition. Most people are traditional in many areas of their life. Do you realize that it was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to drink water? It was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to go to sleep at night To get up in the morning And the list goes on and on. Those things, which are traditional, are those things that have endured the wearing element of time. In light of all of this traditional head-wagging, I want to propose another appreciation day. This coming Sunday I declare it to be Local Church Appreciation Day. Everybody who believes in traditional values will show up at the church of their choice and make their vote count. I know it will be a shock and we run the danger that many church ceilings will cave in, but I think it is worth the risk. Of course, there is the possibility that when many pastors see their sanctuary filled with people they will pass out in sheer shock. In the meantime, I am going to stick to what the Bible says here regardless of what happens. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV). Every Sunday should be local Church Appreciation Day.Rev. James L.

this is our liberal media taking the side of these mayors. Their reporting minimized the crowds that filled Chick-fil-A all day long, they wanted to talk to the gay employees to see how their feelings were hurt by his believing in traditional marriage. All this makes we wonder just how far we have gone toward destroying the very moral backbone of America. As Ronald Reagan said, If we ever forget we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under. I have said it before and it is becoming more and more evident with each passing day. What America do you want? Its bigger than the economy or any one issue, its about God continuing to bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala CompromiseOK, OK, OK. You want compromise? Here it is: When liberals use their scare tactic, firing police, firefighters, and teachers, this is our counter offer: 1. We will trade one police officer for 5 TSA agents. 2. One firefighter for 5 EPA (Agenda 21) agents. 3. One teacher for 5 Obama czars. The price is escalating. We want a bang for our buck. 4. One Social Security check for 10 welfare leeches. 5. One Medicare Card for 100 illegal aliens. 6. One socialist country for one free country. 7. We are honest about what we want, and what we are trying to do. 8. What can we offer to get a little transparency from the opposition? 9. We play fair. 10. We could go on all day. What does the opposition have to offer? D.I. Larson Ocala Small businessesWhy is there so much concentration of Americas future in creating jobs for our workers toward small businesses? Are small businesses all that is left for us to leave to our families after we are gone. The entrepreneurs who created these Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES O ne of the easiest ways to make better-for-you recipes is to swap out some ingredients. In these recipes, mayo, high-calorie dressings and heavy sauces get swapped out for creamy guacamole or flavorful fat-free salsas. Swaps like these make it easy to enjoy your favorite recipes even when youre cutting back on fat and calories. All-natural and preservative-free Wholly Guacamole brings a whole new dimension of tastiness to Asian Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Fettuccini and it cuts down on the bad fats typically found in these dishes. The Salsa Salmon recipe gets a healthful zip of flavor from Wholly Salsa and you can make it as spicy as you like. Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat: Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs. Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich. Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner. Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com. Grilled Chicken Fettuccini Yield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat. Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 min utes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow direc tions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Saut pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese. Smallchanges makeabig difference EnjoyGuac AnyTime YouWantIts not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados arent always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water. WhatsSoGreat AboutAvocados?About 75 percent of an avocados calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados: Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Are rich in vitamins B, E and K. Are high in fiber compared to other fruits including 25 percent soluble fiber. Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free. Salsa Salmon Yield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (its better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375F.

LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 small businesses realize that is all that is left after 28 years of shipping our jobs to other countries. Lets face it, the number one priority for business is profit. That is a proper goal when you consider that the investors and stock holders of these companies are presently receiving the best of the best for their efforts. We must now question our priorities that resulted in huge profits for these businesses and high unemployment for the American workers. In relatively just a few short years we have gone from the greatest manufacturing country in the world that paid good wages to our American workers to where we are now, a country where minimum wage is our new goal. Since the 1970s, corporations have been moving American businesses to foreign countries without any thought except profit for their share holders. Creating good paying American jobs should not be just our goal but should be a priority for small and large businesses supported by our government.

Color RED is free! www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 10, 2012 T hank goodness, the primary election is next week. Maybe for a few weeks the phone calls, the junk mail, all that will stop. I dont mind newspaper ads, of course, and I dont mind commercials on television. When youre watching a program, you expect ads, political or otherwise. What I do resent is the intrusion on my personal time, jumping up from the easy chair to answer the phone, only to hear a recording and see that the call is coming from the 305 area code, or 813, or even out of state. To this date only one candidate has called my home personally, and unfortunately I wasnt there and he had to leave a message. But hes the one Im going to vote for. At least he didnt have a bunch of hired guns doing the calling. I dont like going to the mailbox and picking up seven pieces of mail, including one first-class envelope and six pieces of junk. I dont know which candidates are sending me stuff I pretty much throw it out. I probably should have started a list, using that to decide who I would ignore at the ballot box. Of course, then I might not have anyone left to vote for. Here at the newspaper office we get a lot of material meant for us to publish. I received an anonymous mailing last week supposedly revealing some financial irregularities about one of the County Commission candidates. Sorry, but if you havent got the guts to sign your name, Im not going to waste my reading it all. Then there was the anonymous caller who wanted to give us the scoop on a certain candidate. Unfortunately, his name and number were on the Caller ID. That told me something about his thought process, and I ignored him. As a weekly community newspaper, we dont endorse candidates. Endorsements are believed to have started back around the mid-19th century, when The New York Times urged the election of Mr. Lincoln to the presidency. In those days, people didnt have access to commercials and to the candidates themselves. Newspapers were the conduit between the candidates and the readers there was no other way for people to get information. Now, we try to cover the events at which the candidates appear, but these events are open to the public, and many members of the electorate take advantage by meeting the candidates themselves. While bigger, daily newspapers might feel the need to endorse, smaller community newspapers present the news and the ads, and let you make up your own mind. So just remember, despite how annoyed you might be by the intrusion of the candidates, Aug. 14 is the day to vote. Its your responsibility to choose the people who you feel suit our county the best. See you at the polls. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

I f you follow international news, youve undoubtedly seen many cases where oppressed people finally get the right to vote, and at that first election in their country they turn out in droves. They truly appreciate the chance to choose the people who will make up their government. Here in America, that isnt always the case. While we have the right to vote, there are many who dont take advantage of the privilege, giving many excuses as to why they dont take the few minutes to fill out the ballot. Next Tuesday, Aug. 14, is a big day for dozens of candidates in and around Marion County. Its the date of the primary election. Voter turnout is traditionally low for primary elections, but because of various scenarios this is a big election in the county for races including the sheriff, school superintendent, school board and county commission. There are also two important ballot issues involving taxes, both put on there by the request of the School Board. Each would bring a slight increase in the property tax. Its your county. But if youre not willing to take the initiative of voting, then, frankly, just keep quiet for the next couple of years. As far as we are concerned, if you dont vote, you lose your right to complain. Remember a couple of things. You need a photo ID, and you need to check your recent mailing from the supervisor of elections telling you where to vote. Early voting is also available through Saturday at various locations, listed elsewhere in todays edition. While we generally prefer the traditional voting method of going to the polls on Election Day, we do understand that some people prefer to go to the polls early. If it helps get more voters out, so be it. Either way, please make sure you cast your vote. Its your government. Dont allow someone else to make decisions for you. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont gripe if you dont vote First election season about to end LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Oak Run pavingMarion County did it again. Oak Run had the privilege of the county digging up our thoroughfare twice. Both projects were left in worse condition after the completion. I believe the latest project could have been completed by two or three long-haired, tattooed, ear-ringed teenaged kids with a couple of shovels. Mr. Ghumann, this is ridiculous, a bumpy washboard at best. You have influence with the county. Use it. Rudy Schasel Oak Run residentAmericans stood up If you are a God-fearing American, you have to share my pride in seeing so many stand up for Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, Aug. 1. This wasnt just in Ocala and the rest of Florida, it was throughout most of our nation! It sent a very strong message to the far left mayors of Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco: We dont approve of your telling a business you are not wanted in our town because you believe that marriage is for a man and woman. Just who do you think you are? Where have you been throughout world history? Most of us always shared this definition of marriage and we still do. If you are undecided about the direction our country is headed, look at the politics of these mayors. What will they decide we cant do next time? When will they be telling us where to live, what car to drive, or what our pastors can say from their pulpit? If the liberals stay in power, we havent seen anything yet! They have shown us their vision for America. The Chicago mayor stated that Chicago has a different value system than Chick-fil-A. I want to believe his value system is different from the vast majority of us as evidenced by the super crowds on Aug. 1. We tried more than once to get into Chick-fil-A on College Road, but couldnt even get in the parking lot. We will be back, more than ever. One of the saddest things about Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN You will strain your eyes looking for a significant difference between President Obamas and Mitt Romneys positions on Iran and the prospects of an Israeli attack on the Islamic republic. Both say all options are on the table. All. That includes a fullscale military attack with even nuclear weapons. This isnt alarmism. Irans facilities are undoubtedly well protected. No light force would be capable of taking them out. The Romney campaign created a stir recently when a key foreign-policy adviser, Dan Senor, seemed to up the ante by saying If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that [nuclear weapons capability, the governor would respect that decision. The remark apparently went too far, because Romney had to clarify his position I respect the right of Israel to defend itself, he told CBS. But because Im on foreign soil, I dont want to be creating new foreign policy for my country or in any way to distance myself from the foreign policy of our nation. This indicates that Senor said nothing that Romney wishes to disavow. Senor just said it in the wrong place on foreign soil. Americans have this foolish rule that politics stops at the waters edge. But as the classical-liberal critic of foreign intervention Felix Morley once said, politics stops at the waters edge only when policy stops at the waters edge which, for the American empire, it does not. Romney might differ from Obama over where to paint the red line that Iran may not cross. Obama says Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon. Romney and his old friend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu say Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear capability. That would include possession of uranium and the relevant knowledge. Iran has crossed that line already. Hence the Romney-Netanyahu position sounds marginally more hawkish, though the real difference may not be terribly large. Also, Obama has pleaded with Israel to give economic sanctions against Iran time to work, but Netanyahu said recently he sees no hope in their working. He appears to be itching for war. On the other hand, he doesnt have full support from his military and security establishment. Prominent Israeli officials, active and retired, have said that Iran has not decided to build a weapon and that war with Iran would be stupid. Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Iran would not attack Israel even if it acquired a nuke. It may well be that the war talk is for domestic consumption or is part of a goodcop/bad-cop strategy with the American government. In some ways it doesnt matter. In the past, games of diplomatic chicken have ended in wars no one wanted, and it could happen again. Obama, Romney, and Netanyahu should realize how reckless their course is. Iran justifiably feels besieged. Economic sanctions against the country, which were recently intensified by Obama and Congress, constitute warfare under international law. Moreover, the U.S. and Israeli governments are conducting covert operations against Iran. In other words, the United States and Israel are already at war with the Iranian people. Great hardship is imposed on them, because their ability to trade for consumer goods has been disrupted and the value of their currency undermined. This is where the policy imposed by the humane Obama and supported by Romney has brought the world. And why? They will tell you that Iran must not have a nuclear weapon. But there is no evidence that Iran is developing one. Its religious leader has forsworn such weapons, and the countrys uranium is under the close watch of the International Atomic Energy Agency; that is more than one can say about Israel, which has hundreds of nukes and refuses to join Iran in signing the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. War with Iran would be a disaster for everyone except the war profiteers. Preventing it must be a priority.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.

For information about On Top of the World Communities, visit http://www.OnTopoftheWorldCommuniti es.com Softball LeagueThe summer OTOW Softball league is midway through the season and presently the Wise Way Team is leading the league with a four-game lead and one tie that has to be completed. T he Wise Way Team seems to be rolling along at a good clip and winning those close games with Angelo, their pitcher, who consistently confuses batters and makes good plays on the mound. There are two teams who are close enough to overtake the Wise Way Team, though, as they continue to remain close enough and can make a move at any time. Hot on the heels of the Wise Way Team are the Stone Creek Team and the Florida Eye Team. The team with the better shot is the Stone Creek Team, which is the youngest of the teams in the league and has a good defensive team and plenty of fast runners. The Stone Creek Team has been the pick of the league to take it all, but they have been unable to muster up a string of victories, as the hitting seems to fade in some games. Close behind the Stone Creek team is Florida Eye, but their big hitter, Jeff, is unable to make some of the games, which at times puts a strain on the team because they depend on his bat to get the strong hitting he possesses. Unfortunately, they just lost two of their key players with hamstring pulls that requires some rest periods. This may put a damper on the Florida Eye Team and could start them reeling if they cant fill the gap. Far behind is the Cebert Wealth Team, which just cant seem to get those wins. In quite a few of the games, the Cebert Wealth Team goes into the last inning with a lead, but it seems the team has a lastinning jinx resulting in miscues and letting the lead slip away. Things can, however, change because there are still quite a few games to go, so anything can happen.

St. Helens into a national park? -Esther Monaghan, Boston, MA Mount St. Helens, one of the less prominent yet massive peaks of Washington States Cascade Range, made history on May 18, 1980 by erupting with the force of 500 atomic bombs, devastating 230 square miles of formerly verdant forest and killing 57 people. After considerable debate about what to do with the decimated landscape in the aftermath, Congress sided with scientists advocating it be left alone for research and education. In 1982 Congress created the 172-squaremile Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to be managed by the U.S. Forest Service, which had already been overseeing the forests on the flanks of the mountain as part of the surrounding 1.3 million acre Gifford Pinchot National Forest. But in 2007 federal budget cuts coupled with diminishing visitation led the Forest Service to close one of its two primary visitor centers at Mount St. Helens and scale back on its interpretive and management services. At that point, representatives from surrounding communities and environmental groups and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell came together in an effort to convince Congress to switch Mount St. Helens over to a national park, which would ensure a larger funding pool for visitor services and amenities and ideally spur more visitation, which would in turn mean more business for struggling local communities. Instead of pushing for national park status, however, Cantwell and her Congressional colleagues asked the Forest Service to detail how they plan to protect Mount St. Helens while expanding visitor services and recreational opportunities. The Forest Service subsequently put into place a new plan which, with help from Will Mount St. Helens become a park? A view of Mount ST. Helens in Washington. the recently formed Mount St. Helens Institute, would expand services and explore new options for overnight visitation. Tourism has since grown, but many still want to see Mount St. Helens a national park.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Read the classifieds parks are huge economic engines, pumping nearly $13 billion in economic activity into gateway communities while supporting 250,000 jobs. For every dollar spent on national parks, four dollars are returned to the economies of gateway communities, says Sean Smith, policy director for the National Parks Conservation Association. More than seven million people visited Washingtons national parks last year alone and national parks nationwide received near record-breaking visitors, despite one of the toughest economies in decades. But perhaps more important, says Smith, is that Mount St. Helens is likely the most iconic American landscape currently not in the national park system [with natural, cultural and historic wonders on par with other parks such as Olympic, Zion, and Crater Lake. He adds that national park status would better protect Mount St. Helens natural treasures from potential housing developments and even a proposed open pit gold mine that would be visible from the main visitor center and would decimate one of the most remote and pristine parts of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest adjacent to Mount St. Helens lower flanks. While the debate continues, MountSt. Helens remains an amazing example of Mother Natures fury and her restorative powers. Whether its a national monument or a national park, its well worth a visit. Dear E arthTalk : Do en v ironmentalists think the E ndangered S pe c ies A c t has b een a su cc ess or failure with regard to prote c ting b iodi v ersity in the U.S.? -R on Mc Knight Trenton NJ While that very question has been a subject of debate already for decades, most environmental advocates are thankful such legislation is in place and proud of their government for upholding such high standards when it comes to preserving rare species of plants and animals. That said, critics of the legislation make some solid points. For starters, only one percent of species (20 out of 2,000) under the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) have recovered sufficiently to qualify for delisting. And the millions of dollars spent on often failed recovery efforts are difficult to justify, especially in these otherwise tough economic times. But even though the vast majority of species protected under the ESA have not recovered doesnt undermine the significance of those speciesbald eagles, gray wolves, and grizzly bear to name a few that have rebounded thanks to forward thinking legislation and wildlife management. Louisa Wilcox of the Natural Resources Defense Council is grateful to the ESA for the continued existence of grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park. After listing, the government cleaned up the massive garbage problems in Yellowstone Park, which reduced the habituation of bears to human foodsa pattern that often leads to grizzly deaths, she reports. Commercial sheep herds were moved out of core grizzly habitat while hundreds of miles of roads on public lands in the region were closed to improve the iconic bears chances for survival. The result: The Yellowstone grizzly population more than doubled while human/bear interactions and incursions by hungry grizzlies onto local ranches have declined. So, by any reckoning, the Yellowstone grizzly bear story is an ESA success, concludes Wilcox. To test whether or not the ESA has been effective on a grander scale, the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), another leading green group, compared for its 2012 On Time, On Target report the actual recovery rate of 110 listed species with the projected recovery rate in their federal recovery plans. The 110 species occupy all 50 U.S. states, include all major taxonomic groups, and have various listing lengths. CBD found that the ESA had a remarkably successful recovery rate: 90 percent of species are recovering at the rate specified by their federal recovery plan, adding: On average, species recovered in 25 years, while their recovery plan predicted 23 yearsa 91 percent timeliness accomplishment. CBD also confirmed the hypothesis that the majority of listed species have not enjoyed protection for long enough to warrant an expectation of recovery yet. percent of species have not yet reached their expected recovery year, reports CBD, adding that on average species have been listed for just 32 years, while their recovery plans required 46 years for success. This recent studys findings echo the results of an earlier (2006) analysis in the Northeastern U.S. that found some 93 percent of federally listed species there were stabilized or improving since getting ESA protection and 82 percent were on track to meet recovery goals. When judged in the light of meeting recovery plan timelines for recovery, the Endangered Species Act is remarkably successful, says CBD. Few laws of any kind can boast a 90 percent success rate.

With holiday trips to England, Crete, France and various other countries, it is obvious that Mick meant what he said to Donna over ten years ago. He has indeed taken her places she has never been. After renting for a couple of years, Mick and Donna moved to Cherrywood in February of this year. Four days after their arrival, Eve Houghtaling drafted Donna into working on the Valentines Day Dance. Soon, both Mick and Donna were a regular part of the active social life here at Cherrywood. When asked what they liked about living here they commented on the friendliness of the residents and on the large number of activities available here. Donna also mentioned how she feels safe in the neighborhood. With their ready smiles and quick sense of humor, both Donna and Mick are easy to talk to and fun to be around. Donna enjoys Tai Chi; Water Aerobics; Bingo; Trivia and all the dances. Mick likes playing pool; poker nights and both share a passion for travel and Bocce Ball. You will see them at most of our functions because as I said before, they may be new to our community but they have quickly become huge assets to our social activities and to our Cherrywood family.From Your ReporterAs youve seen in this column, if you have any questions about Cherrywood, please feel free to ask and I will do my best to get you an answer.

COPS stands for Citizens Observer Patrol, and the local volunteer unit, based out of the Sheriffs Southwest District Office, is recruiting new members. COPS members drive around the community, acting as the eyes and ears of the Sheriffs Office, according to coordinator Duane Johnson. Members are asked to drive at least four hours per month, but preferably eight, keeping watch over the various neighborhoods throughout the district. When a member spots something suspicious or a possible crime in progress, he does not intervene but radios for a deputy to come to the scene. They also do vacation checks and maintain the business registry. COPS members are not allowed to carry any sort of weapons while on duty. Some are also part of the Volunteer Emergency Response Team (VERT) and help at accident scenes, road closures, etc. Currently, the Southwest District has 38 members. Johnson said they would like to get up to 50. When asked what it takes to be a member, administrative officer Jack Walsh said, drive, motivation and dedication. Aside from those intangibles, applicants must have driving skills and a Florida drivers license, a clean driving record and no criminal record. An application must be filled out and a background check will be conducted. Applicants must be at least 21 years old. A luncheon will be held Aug. 15 at the Sheriffs district office, sponsored by Bob Evans. Anyone wishing to apply should call either 598-1547, 237-8214 or the Sheriffs district office at 402-6060, preferably before Saturday, Aug. 11. An application can be picked up at the office on State Road 200. One the applicants are approved, they will go through four hours of video training and lectures, and two four-hour ridealongs with training officers. There are also constant two-hour training meetings and videos. Applicants can drive single or in pairs. They are a big help, said Capt. Jim Burton of the Southwest District. We depend a lot on them.

In School Board District 1, Woody Clymer and Nancy Stacy are facing off, while in District 2, Bob Dobkowski, known as Bobby D, and Carol Ely will square off to fill that seat. For County Judge 3, Leann Mackey-Barnes and Tommy Thompson are the finalists, and for County Judge 4, Paul J. Guilfoil and Robert E. Landt will face the voters in the final.

Everyone can vote in the above races. Countywide offices up for election include sheriff, superintendent of schools and supervisor of elections. All, however, are Republican-only primaries, as there is another candidate waiting in the wings for the November election.

There is also a write-in candidate qualified, Judson Cauthen Spence Jr. The superintendent of schools race finds three Republicans fighting for the nomination, including school system employees George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner and current School Board member Jackie Porter.

Detectives believe the burglars are targeting liquor stores and other businesses near the North Central Florida I-75 corridor. Between Saturday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 31, the suspects smashed or pried open glass doors at liquor stores in St. Cloud, Belleview, Lady Lake, Wildwood and Ocala. While in Marion County, the thieves burglarized a Dairy Queen and a wireless cellphone store. Detectives believe the suspects are two tall males who have been loading their loot into a stolen van.

Marion County Sheriffs detectives released video from the Dairy Queen burglary, showing one of the suspects wearing bright orange or pink gloves. Both suspects are covered from head to toe in clothing. Anyone with information can contact the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 352-732-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867.

With holiday trips to England, Crete, France and various other countries, it is obvious that Mick meant what he said to Donna over ten years ago. He has indeed taken her places she has never been. After renting for a couple of years, Mick and Donna moved to Cherrywood in February of this year. Four days after their arrival, Eve Houghtaling drafted Donna into working on the Valentines Day Dance. Soon, both Mick and Donna were a regular part of the active social life here at Cherrywood. When asked what they liked about living here they commented on the friendliness of the residents and on the large number of activities available here. Donna also mentioned how she feels safe in the neighborhood. With their ready smiles and quick sense of humor, both Donna and Mick are easy to talk to and fun to be around. Donna enjoys Tai Chi; Water Aerobics; Bingo; Trivia and all the dances. Mick likes playing pool; poker nights and both share a passion for travel and Bocce Ball.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Read the classifieds parks are huge economic engines, pumping nearly $13 billion in economic activity into gateway communities while supporting 250,000 jobs. For every dollar spent on national parks, four dollars are returned to the economies of gateway communities, says Sean Smith, policy director for the National Parks Conservation Association. More than seven million people visited Washingtons national parks last year alone and national parks nationwide received near record-breaking visitors, despite one of the toughest economies in decades. But perhaps more important, says Smith, is that Mount St. Helens is likely the most iconic American landscape currently not in the national park system [with natural, cultural and historic wonders on par with other parks such as Olympic, Zion, and Crater Lake. He adds that national park status would better protect Mount St. Helens natural treasures from potential housing developments and even a proposed open pit gold mine that would be visible from the main visitor center and would decimate one of the most remote and pristine parts of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest adjacent to Mount St. Helens lower flanks. While the debate continues, MountSt. Helens remains an amazing example of Mother Natures fury and her restorative powers. Whether its a national monument or a national park, its well worth a visit. Dear E arthTalk: Do env ironmentalists think the E ndangered S pec ies Ac t has b een a success or failure with regard to protec ting b iodiv ersity in the U.S.? -R on McKnight, Trenton, NJ While that very question has been a subject of debate already for decades, most environmental advocates are thankful such legislation is in place and proud of their government for upholding such high standards when it comes to preserving rare species of plants and animals. That said, critics of the legislation make some solid points. For starters, only one percent of species (20 out of 2,000) under the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) have recovered sufficiently to qualify for delisting. And the millions of dollars spent on often failed recovery efforts are difficult to justify, especially in these otherwise tough economic times. But even though the vast majority of species protected under the ESA have not recovered doesnt undermine the significance of those speciesbald eagles, gray wolves, and grizzly bear to name a few that have rebounded thanks to forward thinking legislation and wildlife management. Louisa Wilcox of the Natural Resources Defense Council is grateful to the ESA for the continued existence of grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park. After listing, the government cleaned up the massive garbage problems in Yellowstone Park, which reduced the habituation of bears to human foodsa pattern that often leads to grizzly deaths, she reports. Commercial sheep herds were moved out of core grizzly habitat while hundreds of miles of roads on public lands in the region were closed to improve the iconic bears chances for survival. The result: The Yellowstone grizzly population more than doubled while human/bear interactions and incursions by hungry grizzlies onto local ranches have declined. So, by any reckoning, the Yellowstone grizzly bear story is an ESA success, concludes Wilcox. To test whether or not the ESA has been effective on a grander scale, the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), another leading green group, compared for its 2012 On Time, On Target report the actual recovery rate of 110 listed species with the projected recovery rate in their federal recovery plans. The 110 species occupy all 50 U.S. states, include all major taxonomic groups, and have various listing lengths. CBD found that the ESA had a remarkably successful recovery rate: 90 percent of species are recovering at the rate specified by their federal recovery plan, adding: On average, species recovered in 25 years, while their recovery plan predicted 23 yearsa 91 percent timeliness accomplishment. CBD also confirmed the hypothesis that the majority of listed species have not enjoyed protection for long enough to warrant an expectation of recovery yet. percent of species have not yet reached their expected recovery year, reports CBD, adding that on average species have been listed for just 32 years, while their recovery plans required 46 years for success. This recent studys findings echo the results of an earlier (2006) analysis in the Northeastern U.S. that found some 93 percent of federally listed species there were stabilized or improving since getting ESA protection and 82 percent were on track to meet recovery goals.

For information about On Top of the World Communities, visit http://www.OnTopoftheWorldCommuniti es.comSoftball LeagueThe summer OTOW Softball league is midway through the season and presently the Wise Way Team is leading the league with a four-game lead and one tie that has to be completed. T he Wise Way Team seems to be rolling along at a good clip and winning those close games with Angelo, their pitcher, who consistently confuses batters and makes good plays on the mound. There are two teams who are close enough to overtake the Wise Way Team, though, as they continue to remain close enough and can make a move at any time. Hot on the heels of the Wise Way Team are the Stone Creek Team and the Florida Eye Team. The team with the better shot is the Stone Creek Team, which is the youngest of the teams in the league and has a good defensive team and plenty of fast runners. The Stone Creek Team has been the pick of the league to take it all, but they have been unable to muster up a string of victories, as the hitting seems to fade in some games. Close behind the Stone Creek team is Florida Eye, but their big hitter, Jeff, is unable to make some of the games, which at times puts a strain on the team because they depend on his bat to get the strong hitting he possesses. Unfortunately, they just lost two of their key players with hamstring pulls that requires some rest periods. This may put a damper on the Florida Eye Team and could start them reeling if they cant fill the gap. Far behind is the Cebert Wealth Team, which just cant seem to get those wins. In quite a few of the games, the Cebert Wealth Team goes into the last inning with a lead, but it seems the team has a lastinning jinx resulting in miscues and letting the lead slip away. Things can, however, change because there are still quite a few games to go, so anything can happen.

St. Helens into a national park? -Esther Monaghan, Boston, MA Mount St. Helens, one of the less prominent yet massive peaks of Washington States Cascade Range, made history on May 18, 1980 by erupting with the force of 500 atomic bombs, devastating 230 square miles of formerly verdant forest and killing 57 people. After considerable debate about what to do with the decimated landscape in the aftermath, Congress sided with scientists advocating it be left alone for research and education. In 1982 Congress created the 172-squaremile Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to be managed by the U.S. Forest Service, which had already been overseeing the forests on the flanks of the mountain as part of the surrounding 1.3 million acre Gifford Pinchot National Forest. But in 2007 federal budget cuts coupled with diminishing visitation led the Forest Service to close one of its two primary visitor centers at Mount St. Helens and scale back on its interpretive and management services. At that point, representatives from surrounding communities and environmental groups and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell came together in an effort to convince Congress to switch Mount St. Helens over to a national park, which would ensure a larger funding pool for visitor services and amenities and ideally spur more visitation, which would in turn mean more business for struggling local communities. Instead of pushing for national park status, however, Cantwell and her Congressional colleagues asked the Forest Service to detail how they plan to protect Mount St. Helens while expanding visitor services and recreational opportunities. The Forest Service subsequently put into place a new plan which, with help from Will Mount St. Helens become a park? A view of Mount ST. Helens in Washington. the recently formed Mount St. Helens Institute, would expand services and explore new options for overnight visitation. Tourism has since grown, but many still want to see Mount St. Helens a national park. Indeed, recent research by Michigan State University shows that national EARTH TALK PLEASESEEEARTH, PAGE27 T EE P EE T IRE & BUDGET MUFFLER Family Owned And Operated Certified Techs Est. 1990 SR 200 & 91st Ave. 237-5599 2040 N.

Maybe for a few weeks the phone calls, the junk mail, all that will stop. I dont mind newspaper ads, of course, and I dont mind commercials on television. When youre watching a program, you expect ads, political or otherwise. What I do resent is the intrusion on my personal time, jumping up from the easy chair to answer the phone, only to hear a recording and see that the call is coming from the 305 area code, or 813, or even out of state. To this date only one candidate has called my home personally, and unfortunately I wasnt there and he had to leave a message. But hes the one Im going to vote for. At least he didnt have a bunch of hired guns doing the calling. I dont like going to the mailbox and picking up seven pieces of mail, including one first-class envelope and six pieces of junk. I dont know which candidates are sending me stuff I pretty much throw it out. I probably should have started a list, using that to decide who I would ignore at the ballot box. Of course, then I might not have anyone left to vote for. Here at the newspaper office we get a lot of material meant for us to publish. I received an anonymous mailing last week supposedly revealing some financial irregularities about one of the County Commission candidates. Sorry, but if you havent got the guts to sign your name, Im not going to waste my reading it all. Then there was the anonymous caller who wanted to give us the scoop on a certain candidate. Unfortunately, his name and number were on the Caller ID. That told me something about his thought process, and I ignored him. As a weekly community newspaper, we dont endorse candidates. Endorsements are believed to have started back around the mid-19th century, when The New York Times urged the election of Mr. Lincoln to the presidency. In those days, people didnt have access to commercials and to the candidates themselves. Newspapers were the conduit between the candidates and the readers there was no other way for people to get information. Now, we try to cover the events at which the candidates appear, but these events are open to the public, and many members of the electorate take advantage by meeting the candidates themselves. While bigger, daily newspapers might feel the need to endorse, smaller community newspapers present the news and the ads, and let you make up your own mind. So just remember, despite how annoyed you might be by the intrusion of the candidates, Aug. 14 is the day to vote. Its your responsibility to choose the people who you feel suit our county the best.

If you follow international news, youve undoubtedly seen many cases where oppressed people finally get the right to vote, and at that first election in their country they turn out in droves. They truly appreciate the chance to choose the people who will make up their government. Here in America, that isnt always the case. While we have the right to vote, there are many who dont take advantage of the privilege, giving many excuses as to why they dont take the few minutes to fill out the ballot. Next Tuesday, Aug. 14, is a big day for dozens of candidates in and around Marion County. Its the date of the primary election. Voter turnout is traditionally low for primary elections, but because of various scenarios this is a big election in the county for races including the sheriff, school superintendent, school board and county commission. There are also two important ballot issues involving taxes, both put on there by the request of the School Board. Each would bring a slight increase in the property tax. Its your county. But if youre not willing to take the initiative of voting, then, frankly, just keep quiet for the next couple of years. As far as we are concerned, if you dont vote, you lose your right to complain. Remember a couple of things. You need a photo ID, and you need to check your recent mailing from the supervisor of elections telling you where to vote. Early voting is also available through Saturday at various locations, listed elsewhere in todays edition. While we generally prefer the traditional voting method of going to the polls on Election Day, we do understand that some people prefer to go to the polls early. If it helps get more voters out, so be it. Either way, please make sure you cast your vote. Its your government. Dont allow someone else to make decisions for you.

Oak Run had the privilege of the county digging up our thoroughfare twice. Both projects were left in worse condition after the completion. I believe the latest project could have been completed by two or three long-haired, tattooed, ear-ringed teenaged kids with a couple of shovels. Mr. Ghumann, this is ridiculous, a bumpy washboard at best. You have influence with the county. Use it. Rudy Schasel Oak Run residentAmericans stood upIf you are a God-fearing American, you have to share my pride in seeing so many stand up for Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, Aug. 1. This wasnt just in Ocala and the rest of Florida, it was throughout most of our nation! It sent a very strong message to the far left mayors of Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco: We dont approve of your telling a business you are not wanted in our town because you believe that marriage is for a man and woman. Just who do you think you are? Where have you been throughout world history? Most of us always shared this definition of marriage and we still do. If you are undecided about the direction our country is headed, look at the politics of these mayors. What will they decide we cant do next time? When will they be telling us where to live, what car to drive, or what our pastors can say from their pulpit? If the liberals stay in power, we havent seen anything yet! They have shown us their vision for America. The Chicago mayor stated that Chicago has a different value system than Chick-fil-A. I want to believe his value system is different from the vast majority of us as evidenced by the super crowds on Aug. 1. We tried more than once to get into Chick-fil-A on College Road, but couldnt even get in the parking lot. We will be back, more than ever. One of the saddest things about Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN You will strain your eyes looking for a significant difference between President Obamas and Mitt Romneys positions on Iran and the prospects of an Israeli attack on the Islamic republic. Both say all options are on the table. All. That includes a fullscale military attack with even nuclear weapons. This isnt alarmism. Irans facilities are undoubtedly well protected. No light force would be capable of taking them out. The Romney campaign created a stir recently when a key foreign-policy adviser, Dan Senor, seemed to up the ante by saying If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that [nuclear weapons capability, the governor would respect that decision. The remark apparently went too far, because Romney had to clarify his position I respect the right of Israel to defend itself, he told CBS. But because Im on foreign soil, I dont want to be creating new foreign policy for my country or in any way to distance myself from the foreign policy of our nation. This indicates that Senor said nothing that Romney wishes to disavow. Senor just said it in the wrong place on foreign soil. Americans have this foolish rule that politics stops at the waters edge. But as the classical-liberal critic of foreign intervention Felix Morley once said, politics stops at the waters edge only when policy stops at the waters edge which, for the American empire, it does not. Romney might differ from Obama over where to paint the red line that Iran may not cross. Obama says Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon. Romney and his old friend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu say Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear capability. That would include possession of uranium and the relevant knowledge. Iran has crossed that line already. Hence the Romney-Netanyahu position sounds marginally more hawkish, though the real difference may not be terribly large. Also, Obama has pleaded with Israel to give economic sanctions against Iran time to work, but Netanyahu said recently he sees no hope in their working. He appears to be itching for war. On the other hand, he doesnt have full support from his military and security establishment. Prominent Israeli officials, active and retired, have said that Iran has not decided to build a weapon and that war with Iran would be stupid. Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Iran would not attack Israel even if it acquired a nuke. It may well be that the war talk is for domestic consumption or is part of a goodcop/bad-cop strategy with the American government. In some ways it doesnt matter. In the past, games of diplomatic chicken have ended in wars no one wanted, and it could happen again. Obama, Romney, and Netanyahu should realize how reckless their course is. Iran justifiably feels besieged. Economic sanctions against the country, which were recently intensified by Obama and Congress, constitute warfare under international law. Moreover, the U.S. and Israeli governments are conducting covert operations against Iran. In other words, the United States and Israel are already at war with the Iranian people. Great hardship is imposed on them, because their ability to trade for consumer goods has been disrupted and the value of their currency undermined. This is where the policy imposed by the humane Obama and supported by Romney has brought the world. And why? They will tell you that Iran must not have a nuclear weapon. But there is no evidence that Iran is developing one. Its religious leader has forsworn such weapons, and the countrys uranium is under the close watch of the International Atomic Energy Agency; that is more than one can say about Israel, which has hundreds of nukes and refuses to join Iran in signing the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. War with Iran would be a disaster for everyone except the war profiteers. Preventing it must be a priority.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.

this is our liberal media taking the side of these mayors. Their reporting minimized the crowds that filled Chick-fil-A all day long, they wanted to talk to the gay employees to see how their feelings were hurt by his believing in traditional marriage. All this makes we wonder just how far we have gone toward destroying the very moral backbone of America. As Ronald Reagan said, If we ever forget we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under. I have said it before and it is becoming more and more evident with each passing day. What America do you want? Its bigger than the economy or any one issue, its about God continuing to bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala CompromiseOK, OK, OK. You want compromise? Here it is: When liberals use their scare tactic, firing police, firefighters, and teachers, this is our counter offer: 1. We will trade one police officer for 5 TSA agents. 2. One firefighter for 5 EPA (Agenda 21) agents. 3. One teacher for 5 Obama czars. The price is escalating. We want a bang for our buck. 4. One Social Security check for 10 welfare leeches. 5. One Medicare Card for 100 illegal aliens. 6. One socialist country for one free country. 7. We are honest about what we want, and what we are trying to do. 8. What can we offer to get a little transparency from the opposition? 9. We play fair. 10. We could go on all day. What does the opposition have to offer? D.I. Larson OcalaSmall businessesWhy is there so much concentration of Americas future in creating jobs for our workers toward small businesses? Are small businesses all that is left for us to leave to our families after we are gone. The entrepreneurs who created theseFriday, August 10, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES One of the easiest ways to make better-for-you recipes is to swap out some ingredients. In these recipes, mayo, high-calorie dressings and heavy sauces get swapped out for creamy guacamole or flavorful fat-free salsas. Swaps like these make it easy to enjoy your favorite recipes even when youre cutting back on fat and calories. All-natural and preservative-free Wholly Guacamole brings a whole new dimension of tastiness to Asian Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Fettuccini and it cuts down on the bad fats typically found in these dishes. The Salsa Salmon recipe gets a healthful zip of flavor from Wholly Salsa and you can make it as spicy as you like. Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat:Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs.Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich.Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner.Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com. Grilled Chicken FettucciniYield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat. Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 min utes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow direc tions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Saut pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese.Smallchanges makeabig difference EnjoyGuac AnyTime YouWantIts not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados arent always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water. WhatsSoGreat AboutAvocados?About 75 percent of an avocados calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados:Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.Are rich in vitamins B, E and K. Are high in fiber compared to other fruits including 25 percent soluble fiber. Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free.Salsa SalmonYield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (its better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375F. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in an oven-proof dish. Divide salsa evenly, spoon over salmon steaks and scatter olives on top. Top evenly with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (or recommended cooking time on salmon package). Sprinkle with parsley to serve.Asian Chicken SaladYield: 3 servings Juice from half a lime 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 2/3 cup Wholly Guacamole 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 5-ounce package spring salad mix 1/4 cup red onion, diced 1/4 cup tomato, diced 1/2 of a 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chopped 3 grilled chicken breasts Crispy chow mein noodles, for garnish Add lime juice, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, sesame oil, guacamole, rice wine vinegar, salt, water and soy sauce to blender. Blend until uniform. Place dressing in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Toss salad mix, onion, tomato, oranges, dressing and 2 table spoons rough-chopped cilantro in a bowl. Divide salad between 3 plates and top with sliced grilled chicken and chow mein noodles. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 small businesses realize that is all that is left after 28 years of shipping our jobs to other countries. Lets face it, the number one priority for business is profit. That is a proper goal when you consider that the investors and stock holders of these companies are presently receiving the best of the best for their efforts. We must now question our priorities that resulted in huge profits for these businesses and high unemployment for the American workers. In relatively just a few short years we have gone from the greatest manufacturing country in the world that paid good wages to our American workers to where we are now, a country where minimum wage is our new goal. Since the 1970s, corporations have been moving American businesses to foreign countries without any thought except profit for their share holders. Creating good paying American jobs should not be just our goal but should be a priority for small and large businesses supported by our government.

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com It is funny where you pick up an idea. I know I was not born with a truck full of ideas like some people. Take, for example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has more ideas than you can shake a stick at, and believe me; I have shaken many a stick at her, behind her back, of course. I have to scrap around for an idea and then when I do find one I am so exhausted from the search that I am not sure what to do with it. Then an idea comes looking for me. That is a strange phenomenon. I was watching the news with my wife when we heard the lead story of the day about the Chick-fil-A appreciation day. Im not sure I know all the political ins and outs of that sort of thing. Everything seems to have some kind of political overtone to it these days. What was once a matter of morality has become a matter of policy. Politics have invaded every aspect of our life, and I am so looking forward to heaven where, someone told me and I cannot reveal the source, but the word is out, there are no politics in heaven. Whenever you have an opportunity to go out and buy some chicken, I say take it. It was not hard to convince my better half to go out for supper. We do not do it too much anymore. What with the traffic and the finances, it hardly seems worthwhile. That is why I always brag on my wifes cooking. Oh, boy, I will say after a meal, you cant get anything this good at some restaurants. She smiles, but I suspect she knows what I am saying. Well, we did try to go to Chick-fil-A but we could not get within 17 blocks of it. It seems everybody and their third cousin was out getting chicken for supper. Oh well, you cannot participate in everything, but at least we tried. As we circled the block for the 19th time, the idea came to me. If we can have a Chick-fil-A appreciation day because the head of the company said he believed in some traditional values, then why cant I? I believe in everything traditional. I am the most traditional person you will ever meet. Before there was a me, there was not much that was traditional. I go back so far I can remember when dirt was clean. I want the whole world to know that I believe in tradition and I am not just fiddling on the roof. I know it is old fashioned but I believe in the Bible. If it is in the Bible, I believe it, although I must confess I do not understand everything in the Bible. But then, nobody understands everything in their world. The smartest person knows he does not know everything. I built my life upon the values stressed in the Bible and I take it as the Word of God. I believe in singing hymns in church. Most people in America have never heard a hymn let alone singing one in a congregational setting. If you would go to the average person on the street corner and ask what their favorite hymn was, they would not know what you are talking about. I know tradition is oldfashioned, but I still embrace it. If it is traditional, I probably believe it. Some people believe that if it is new, it is OK and if it is old, throw it away. Experience teaches us that it is the exact opposite. Take medicine for example. Sure, many people have benefited from modern advancements in medicine. I am appreciative of every advancement. But then, if medicine has made such inroads into our culture why are more and more people sick? Why are the hospitals full and overflowing? Why are there not enough doctors to take care of all of the sick? I am thankful for what medicine has done, but for every cure it achieves, three more diseases pop up sticking out their tongue. Yes, I believe in tradition. Most people are traditional in many areas of their life. Do you realize that it was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to drink water? It was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to go to sleep at night To get up in the morning And the list goes on and on. Those things, which are traditional, are those things that have endured the wearing element of time. In light of all of this traditional head-wagging, I want to propose another appreciation day. This coming Sunday I declare it to be Local Church Appreciation Day. Everybody who believes in traditional values will show up at the church of their choice and make their vote count. I know it will be a shock and we run the danger that many church ceilings will cave in, but I think it is worth the risk. Of course, there is the possibility that when many pastors see their sanctuary filled with people they will pass out in sheer shock. In the meantime, I am going to stick to what the Bible says here regardless of what happens. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV). Every Sunday should be local Church Appreciation Day.Rev. James L.

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE PRESIDENTS CLUB By Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy The Presidents Club, like so much else, was founded by George Washington who wisely decided, after two terms, to be a former president rather than president for life. As the club grew it defied all expectations in that former presidents talked to each other. And when they couldnt talk to each other, they studied each other Authors Gibbs and Duffy write, If the Presidents Club had a seal, around the ring would be three words: operation, competition, and consolation. On the one hand, the presidents have powerful motives personal and patrioticto help one another succeed and comfort one another when they fail. They are one anothers peers; who else can really judge them? They share a unique bond as presidents. And its not surprising that so many of them are drawn to Lincoln the one who started lowest, rose highest, faced the great test, and triumphed. Eisenhower identified with him to such an extent that he bought a farm in Gettysburg and painted a portrait of Lincoln. As Kennedy flew home from his grueling summit with Khrushchev in June 1961 he dropped a slip of paper on the floor. It was a Lincoln quote: I know there is a Godand I see a storm coming. If He has a place for me I believe I am ready. And who can forget the footage of Nixon showing up at 4:30 a.m. in the wake of the Kent State shooting and to the horror of scrambling Secret Service men. Gossip, snapshots of unlikely presidential friendships BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Much of the book is gossipy but the snapshots of unlikely friendships are fascinating. Ike and Truman head to Blair House for a drink together after John, F. Kennedys funeral; Ford and Clinton golf together in Vail; Ford and Carter fly together to Cairo to honor the slain Anwar Sadat; and Bill Clinton mourns the death of Richard Nixon who hed grown close to and whose counsel he had valued. There is much of interest here even if the selection for the 17 chapters is a bit puzzling: seven devoted to Nixon; four to the Bushes; three each to Reagan, Ford, and Johnson; two to Eisenhower, and one each to Truman, Carter, Clinton and Obama. History buffs and news junkiesthis ones for you. Hospice volunteers neededVolunteers Needed. One or two hours can be a blessing to our patients and families receiving hospice care. Sitting with patients, while caregivers run errands, or go to Dr. appts. can be so rewarding and fulfilling. If you are interested in becoming an Odyssey Hospice, Bedside Blessing Volunteer, please contact, Laura Roweton @ 352-622-9331 or lroweton@odsyhealth.com August 26 is known as Womens Equality Day. On that date in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. Social Security treats men and women equally. Men and women with identical earnings histories are treated exactly the same. However, there are things women in particular should know about Social Security. Although treated equally by Social Security, there are trends and differences in lifestyle that can affect benefits. For example, women tend to care for many people: spouses, children, and parents. Taking time away from the workplace to care for a newborn child or aging parent can have an impact on your future Social Security benefits. Also, despite significant strides through the years, women are more likely to earn less over a lifetime than men. Women are less often covered by private retirement plans, and they are more dependent on Social Security in their retirement years. And, women tend to live about five years longer than men, which means more years depending on Social Security and other income or savings. If a woman is married to a man who earns significantly more than she does, it is likely she will qualify for a larger benefit amount on his record than on her own. Want to learn more? Visit our Womens page at www.socialsecurity.gov/wo men. Follow the link on that page to our publication, What Every Woman Should Know. You can read it online, print a copy, or listen to it on audio. We provide alternate media as well to reach as many women as possible and to provide information the way youd like to receive it. Learning about your future Social Security benefits and how men and women are treated just the same in the eyes of Social Security: what better way to celebrate Womens Equality Day?Adon Williams is Social Security District Manager, Ocala.

We visit Marion Oaks Elementary and Sunrise Elementary 12 mornings (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) during the school year for about an hour and read to children in kindergarten through third grades. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you choose which book youd like to read. You are escorted by two of the children to their classroom, and the reading only takes about ten to twenty minutes, depending on how involved you get with the children. They love it, and its very gratifying to spend time with them. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Please think about it, and if youre interested call Carla Wuebben at 352-854-6461 to sign up or for more information. Carpooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join.TroubadoursOur Oak Run Troubadours music group is starting to prepare for the Christmas tree trim. It is always exciting to sing the Showcase of Stars performs at Palm Grove on Aug. 18 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE14 On this coming Monday exactly 70 years ago, Disneys movie Bambi opened at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. It was the first film to realistically portray cartoon animals, so much so that a group of animals celebrate every year at an exclusive and expensive restaurant. Last year when the animals were brought the bill, this is how they responded. The skunk said, Dont look at me, I only have a scent. The gopher said, Sorry, but Ive been in a hole. The porcupine was thinking, Which one can I stick for the check? The groundhog said, If you let me go I shadow you a favor. The duck said, Just put it on my bill. The pelican complained, My bill is much too large. The sardine said, I cant pay. My boss called and Ive been canned. The squid stated he would have signed a check, but he was out of ink. The deer said, I had a buck last week and Im expecting a little doe soon. The ram said, I was expecting ewe to pay. The rhinoceros said: Dont worry. When the waiter comes, Ill just charge it. The cuckoo said, I cant. I lost my nest egg. The pigeon said, I can only make a deposit right now. The chicken, in a foul mood, laid it on the line, I think youre all so cheep. The bumblebee said, Buzz off. The grizzly said, Im barely getting along. The koala said, And Im just a little bare right now. The elephant said, I left what I had in my trunk. The manx cat said, I know youve probably heard this tail before, but Im a little short. The dachshund said, Im very short, and Ive got be to getting a long. The frog said, Ive only got one greenback. The snake said, Its hiss turn to pay. The ferret said, Its none of my business. The turtle said, I shell pay next time. The chameleon was nowhere to be seen. The sponge said, I cant absorb the cost. The amoeba said, Ive got to split now. The snail said, I cant shell out. The tapeworm said, I am flat broke today. The mollusks just clammed up. The goose said, Im down on my luck. The cow said, Youll have to ask one of the udders. I got no mooo-lah. The mule asked if he would get a kick-back. The kangaroo said, I left home with an empty pouch. The dolphin said, I didnt leave my wallet at home on porpoise. The electric eel was asked if he could charge it. He answered, Dont be shocked, but my account is not current. The owl asked, Whooo? Me? The giraffe said, It just is too high for me. The beaver got up to leave and said, Ill be damned if Ill pay. Youll have to ask one of the otters. But its been nice gnawing you. Finally the lion said, Im not a cheetah. Ill pay it. Ive still got my pride.Deer commentsI know a parent who wouldnt take his kids to see Bambi because it was a stag movie. The wife who went deer hunting with her husband is very proud that she was able to shoot a fine buck as well as her husband. Hunters have killed many deer only because they needed a few bucks. A runner collided with a deer during a high-school cross-country meet in Wisconsin. The deer was listed as a Jane Doe. You take a deer census by going doe to doe. When the farmers wife ran away with a traveling salesman, she left him a John Deere letter. Shoppers at a Goodwill store were surprised when a deer crashed through a store window. Several people protected it from frightened shoppers; they were trying to save a buck.Eye for a huntTwo men were out hunting when they picked up the tracks of a deer. They soon caught up with it, and it was obvious why it had been so easy to find. It had a terrible infection over its left eye, which it couldnt even see out of. One man started to take aim with his shotgun, but his friend begged him to stop. He said, Cant you see thats a bad eye deer?

Number 13 in the Spring 2012 Brochure is Moon Over Buffalo at Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre on Oct. 27. This is a madcap farce about two traveling stage actors who find out a famous director will be seeing one of their shows to determine if he wants to use them in his new film. Mistakes are made and family members cause lots of problems as one of the actors gets drunk resulting in a disastrous show. See how it all comes out while you are rolling in the aisle. Cost is $58 per person and includes the lunch buffet, show and bus drivers tip. Call hosts Frank and Shirley Semmelmayer to get your seat for this fun trip before all the seats are gone.

We will 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. W a y Off Br oad wa yA flyer was recently sent to all Oak Runners in the August Oak Run Newsletter promoting our October play, Squad Room Blues. The flyer contained the show dates of Oct. 12, 13 and 14 and all of the public ticket sales dates were set forth. It did not however indicate the price of tickets which are $7 for reserved seats and $5 for general admission seats. As a matter of information, we could not maintain this low ticket price if it were not for the sale of advertising in our play program. Without this revenue ticket prices would double so we urge you to patronize the business and professional people who support us year in and year out. In various periodicals over the past two months we have indicated the need to purchase reserved seats early to get the best seating. While we havent had our first public ticket sale yet, a great many have been sold. Our members purchase tickets for their families, friends and neighbors. Past audiences who avail themselves of the direct telephone purchase of tickets by calling Linda Noel at 352-873 9908 have already begun making their purchases. So once again we urge you to act swiftly in buying yours at one of the public sales and/or by phoning Linda in the event you cant get to a sale.

O AK R UNC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 13 A Resident AskedWhen your humble reporter gets a question from one of our readers, he goes out of his way to find the answer and share it with the community. This weeks question was, How did the various sections of the Cherrywood subdivision get their nicknames? For example, the area by the clubhouse is called The Mainland; the neighborhood on the opposite side of 62nd from the clubhouse is referred to as The Island. Other areas include The Outback and the Prairie etc. After much research, well really not that much, I found two answers; both very similar. The first came from anonymous sources that related the following. As the various locations of our community were being developed, a group of the original buyers into Cherrywood were sitting around the pool one evening having a few adult beverages. In order to describe what part of the community they were from, they devised these various names. The Mainland was that area around the clubhouse and because the homes on the east side of 62nd Avenue were separated from that part of Cherrywood; they became known as the Island. Other descriptions included The Prairie; North Island and the Horse Farm. The names stuck and ever since then, the different parts of Cherrywood have been called by those names. A second more detailed answer came from Fred OHern. He provided the following information. Cherrywood originally developed outward from the entry off of 103rd Street. The next state of development was the other side of the easement set aside for 62nd thus it was entirely cut off from the Mainland thus it became the Island. Then 60th/62 was punched through from 200 to 103rd Street and l00th Street was paved. It became the Prairie. The north part of the Island (north from 103rd Loop was developed beginning in 2002, thus North Island. The final bit was the corner where Chris had a paddock for horses, thus the Horse Farm Because all of the various models of homes are located throughout the Cherrywood community, there is no social or economic attachment to any of the names. We are one cohesive community who just live in various locations designated for convenience by nicknames. I hope this answers the readers question. If one person was wondering about the nomenclature of Cherrywood, then I bet there were others of you who were also curious about this subject. Our community has some original thinkers with great ideas and keen senses of humor it seems. So I send this answer from the Prairie of Cherrywood.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature residents who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature relative newcomers, Donna and Mick James. Mick and Donna hail from Marlboro, New York, where they lived while Mick was a computer analyst for IBM. He specialized in disaster recovery of data for many fortune five hundred companies. When I commented that if I should have any computer problems I would come and see him he laughing let me know that he hated computers. Managing the restoration of data and being a computer analyst occupied much of Micks time as he spent 30 years at IBM. Originally from England, Mick has worked with the Merchant Marine as a head waiter in the first class section of a cruise liner and was a licensed fork lift operator back in his home country. He came to America from England on holiday in 1978. He liked it so much that he stayed and became an American Citizen. Mick still has relatives in CHERR Y W OODC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 18 England including his Mom, June, and a brother Roger in Southampton. Another brother, Allen was tragically killed in an auto accident in New Zealand in 1990. His son Colin, from a previous marriage, lives in Newburgh, New York, and works for Jet Blue Airlines. Back in December of 2001 mutual friends introduced Donna and Mick at a party. They managed to stay apart after that first introduction for an entire nine hours. Mick invited Donna for a walk on the beach and she asked, Should I bring my bathing suit? He smiles when he relates the story because while December in New York is hardly a time to go swimming, the prospect of her bringing a bathing suit did intrigue him. When Mick proposed, he told Donna, Stick with me and Ill take you places youve never been. He has kept that promise, Donna smiles as she relates the story. Less than a year later, the two were married. They are looking forward to their 10th anniversary on October 21st of this year. Donna comes from a large family. She has an older brother Mark who lives in Wappingers Falls, New York, and three younger sisters; Chris who lives in Taylorville Utah and Dane who resides in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Another sister Katy also still lives in Donnas home town of Wappingers Falls. Graduating from Roy C. Ketcham High School in Poughkeepsie, New York, Donna entered the nursing program at Hudson River Psychiatric Center. She graduated as an RN and went into coronary care medical nursing. Continuing her career and her education, Donna received a B.A. from the University of Utah in Anthropology. Upon returning to New Y ork she received a Masters Degree in Anthro pology from New Y ork State University at Albany W orking at Mount Saint Mar ys College in Newburgh, she ser ved as Academic Advisor to Special Needs Students and also taught introduction to Anthropology P rior to her retirement, Donna ser ved as office manager for the Hudson V alley Physical Therapy where she specialized in accounting; billing and also ser ved as a receptionist. K eeping his promise, Mick has shared three trips to Nicaragua with Donna.

W a y Off Br oad wa yA flyer was recently sent to all Oak Runners in the August Oak Run Newsletter promoting our October play, Squad Room Blues. The flyer contained the show dates of Oct. 12, 13 and 14 and all of the public ticket sales dates were set forth. It did not however indicate the price of tickets which are $7 for reserved seats and $5 for general admission seats. As a matter of information, we could not maintain this low ticket price if it were not for the sale of advertising in our play program. Without this revenue ticket prices would double so we urge you to patronize the business and professional people who support us year in and year out. In various periodicals over the past two months we have indicated the need to purchase reserved seats early to get the best seating. While we havent had our first public ticket sale yet, a great many have been sold. Our members purchase tickets for their families, friends and neighbors. Past audiences who avail themselves of the direct telephone purchase of tickets by calling Linda Noel at 352-873 9908 have already begun making their purchases. So once again we urge you to act swiftly in buying yours at one of the public sales and/or by phoning Linda in the event you cant get to a sale.

O AK R UNC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 13 A Resident AskedWhen your humble reporter gets a question from one of our readers, he goes out of his way to find the answer and share it with the community. This weeks question was, How did the various sections of the Cherrywood subdivision get their nicknames? For example, the area by the clubhouse is called The Mainland; the neighborhood on the opposite side of 62nd from the clubhouse is referred to as The Island. Other areas include The Outback and the Prairie etc. After much research, well really not that much, I found two answers; both very similar. The first came from anonymous sources that related the following. As the various locations of our community were being developed, a group of the original buyers into Cherrywood were sitting around the pool one evening having a few adult beverages. In order to describe what part of the community they were from, they devised these various names. The Mainland was that area around the clubhouse and because the homes on the east side of 62nd Avenue were separated from that part of Cherrywood; they became known as the Island. Other descriptions included The Prairie; North Island and the Horse Farm. The names stuck and ever since then, the different parts of Cherrywood have been called by those names. A second more detailed answer came from Fred OHern. He provided the following information. Cherrywood originally developed outward from the entry off of 103rd Street. The next state of development was the other side of the easement set aside for 62nd thus it was entirely cut off from the Mainland thus it became the Island. Then 60th/62 was punched through from 200 to 103rd Street and l00th Street was paved. It became the Prairie. The north part of the Island (north from 103rd Loop was developed beginning in 2002, thus North Island. The final bit was the corner where Chris had a paddock for horses, thus the Horse Farm Because all of the various models of homes are located throughout the Cherrywood community, there is no social or economic attachment to any of the names. We are one cohesive community who just live in various locations designated for convenience by nicknames. I hope this answers the readers question. If one person was wondering about the nomenclature of Cherrywood, then I bet there were others of you who were also curious about this subject. Our community has some original thinkers with great ideas and keen senses of humor it seems. So I send this answer from the Prairie of Cherrywood.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature residents who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature relative newcomers, Donna and Mick James. Mick and Donna hail from Marlboro, New York, where they lived while Mick was a computer analyst for IBM. He specialized in disaster recovery of data for many fortune five hundred companies. When I commented that if I should have any computer problems I would come and see him he laughing let me know that he hated computers. Managing the restoration of data and being a computer analyst occupied much of Micks time as he spent 30 years at IBM. Originally from England, Mick has worked with the Merchant Marine as a head waiter in the first class section of a cruise liner and was a licensed fork lift operator back in his home country. He came to America from England on holiday in 1978. He liked it so much that he stayed and became an American Citizen. Mick still has relatives in CHERR Y W OODC ONTINUED FROM P A GE 18 England including his Mom, June, and a brother Roger in Southampton. Another brother, Allen was tragically killed in an auto accident in New Zealand in 1990. His son Colin, from a previous marriage, lives in Newburgh, New York, and works for Jet Blue Airlines. Back in December of 2001 mutual friends introduced Donna and Mick at a party. They managed to stay apart after that first introduction for an entire nine hours. Mick invited Donna for a walk on the beach and she asked, Should I bring my bathing suit? He smiles when he relates the story because while December in New York is hardly a time to go swimming, the prospect of her bringing a bathing suit did intrigue him. When Mick proposed, he told Donna, Stick with me and Ill take you places youve never been. He has kept that promise, Donna smiles as she relates the story. Less than a year later, the two were married. They are looking forward to their 10th anniversary on October 21st of this year. Donna comes from a large family. She has an older brother Mark who lives in Wappingers Falls, New York, and three younger sisters; Chris who lives in Taylorville Utah and Dane who resides in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Another sister Katy also still lives in Donnas home town of Wappingers Falls. Graduating from Roy C. Ketcham High School in Poughkeepsie, New York, Donna entered the nursing program at Hudson River Psychiatric Center. She graduated as an RN and went into coronary care medical nursing. Continuing her career and her education, Donna received a B.A. from the University of Utah in Anthropology. Upon returning to New Y ork she received a Masters Degree in Anthro pology from New Y ork State University at Albany W orking at Mount Saint Mar ys College in Newburgh, she ser ved as Academic Advisor to Special Needs Students and also taught introduction to Anthropology P rior to her retirement, Donna ser ved as office manager for the Hudson V alley Physical Therapy where she specialized in accounting; billing and also ser ved as a receptionist. K eeping his promise, Mick has shared three trips to Nicaragua with Donna.

We visit Marion Oaks Elementary and Sunrise Elementary 12 mornings (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) during the school year for about an hour and read to children in kindergarten through third grades. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you choose which book youd like to read. You are escorted by two of the children to their classroom, and the reading only takes about ten to twenty minutes, depending on how involved you get with the children. They love it, and its very gratifying to spend time with them. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Please think about it, and if youre interested call Carla Wuebben at 352-854-6461 to sign up or for more information. Carpooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join.TroubadoursOur Oak Run Troubadours music group is starting to prepare for the Christmas tree trim. It is always exciting to sing the Showcase of Stars performs at Palm Grove on Aug. 18 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE14 On this coming Monday exactly 70 years ago, Disneys movie Bambi opened at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. It was the first film to realistically portray cartoon animals, so much so that a group of animals celebrate every year at an exclusive and expensive restaurant. Last year when the animals were brought the bill, this is how they responded. The skunk said, Dont look at me, I only have a scent. The gopher said, Sorry, but Ive been in a hole. The porcupine was thinking, Which one can I stick for the check? The groundhog said, If you let me go I shadow you a favor. The duck said, Just put it on my bill. The pelican complained, My bill is much too large. The sardine said, I cant pay. My boss called and Ive been canned. The squid stated he would have signed a check, but he was out of ink. The deer said, I had a buck last week and Im expecting a little doe soon. The ram said, I was expecting ewe to pay. The rhinoceros said: Dont worry. When the waiter comes, Ill just charge it. The cuckoo said, I cant. I lost my nest egg. The pigeon said, I can only make a deposit right now. The chicken, in a foul mood, laid it on the line, I think youre all so cheep. The bumblebee said, Buzz off. The grizzly said, Im barely getting along. The koala said, And Im just a little bare right now. The elephant said, I left what I had in my trunk. The manx cat said, I know youve probably heard this tail before, but Im a little short. The dachshund said, Im very short, and Ive got be to getting a long. The frog said, Ive only got one greenback. The snake said, Its hiss turn to pay. The ferret said, Its none of my business. The turtle said, I shell pay next time. The chameleon was nowhere to be seen. The sponge said, I cant absorb the cost. The amoeba said, Ive got to split now. The snail said, I cant shell out. The tapeworm said, I am flat broke today. The mollusks just clammed up. The goose said, Im down on my luck. The cow said, Youll have to ask one of the udders. I got no mooo-lah. The mule asked if he would get a kick-back. The kangaroo said, I left home with an empty pouch. The dolphin said, I didnt leave my wallet at home on porpoise. The electric eel was asked if he could charge it. He answered, Dont be shocked, but my account is not current. The owl asked, Whooo? Me? The giraffe said, It just is too high for me. The beaver got up to leave and said, Ill be damned if Ill pay. Youll have to ask one of the otters. But its been nice gnawing you. Finally the lion said, Im not a cheetah. Ill pay it. Ive still got my pride.Deer commentsI know a parent who wouldnt take his kids to see Bambi because it was a stag movie. The wife who went deer hunting with her husband is very proud that she was able to shoot a fine buck as well as her husband. Hunters have killed many deer only because they needed a few bucks. A runner collided with a deer during a high-school cross-country meet in Wisconsin. The deer was listed as a Jane Doe. You take a deer census by going doe to doe. When the farmers wife ran away with a traveling salesman, she left him a John Deere letter. Shoppers at a Goodwill store were surprised when a deer crashed through a store window. Several people protected it from frightened shoppers; they were trying to save a buck.Eye for a huntTwo men were out hunting when they picked up the tracks of a deer. They soon caught up with it, and it was obvious why it had been so easy to find. It had a terrible infection over its left eye, which it couldnt even see out of. One man started to take aim with his shotgun, but his friend begged him to stop. He said, Cant you see thats a bad eye deer?

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com THE PRESIDENTS CLUB By Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy The Presidents Club, like so much else, was founded by George Washington who wisely decided, after two terms, to be a former president rather than president for life. As the club grew it defied all expectations in that former presidents talked to each other. And when they couldnt talk to each other, they studied each other Authors Gibbs and Duffy write, If the Presidents Club had a seal, around the ring would be three words: operation, competition, and consolation. On the one hand, the presidents have powerful motives personal and patrioticto help one another succeed and comfort one another when they fail. They are one anothers peers; who else can really judge them? They share a unique bond as presidents. And its not surprising that so many of them are drawn to Lincoln the one who started lowest, rose highest, faced the great test, and triumphed. Eisenhower identified with him to such an extent that he bought a farm in Gettysburg and painted a portrait of Lincoln. As Kennedy flew home from his grueling summit with Khrushchev in June 1961 he dropped a slip of paper on the floor. It was a Lincoln quote: I know there is a Godand I see a storm coming. If He has a place for me I believe I am ready. And who can forget the footage of Nixon showing up at 4:30 a.m. in the wake of the Kent State shooting and to the horror of scrambling Secret Service men. Gossip, snapshots of unlikely presidential friendships BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Much of the book is gossipy but the snapshots of unlikely friendships are fascinating. Ike and Truman head to Blair House for a drink together after John, F. Kennedys funeral; Ford and Clinton golf together in Vail; Ford and Carter fly together to Cairo to honor the slain Anwar Sadat; and Bill Clinton mourns the death of Richard Nixon who hed grown close to and whose counsel he had valued. There is much of interest here even if the selection for the 17 chapters is a bit puzzling: seven devoted to Nixon; four to the Bushes; three each to Reagan, Ford, and Johnson; two to Eisenhower, and one each to Truman, Carter, Clinton and Obama. History buffs and news junkiesthis ones for you. Hospice volunteers neededVolunteers Needed. One or two hours can be a blessing to our patients and families receiving hospice care. Sitting with patients, while caregivers run errands, or go to Dr. appts. can be so rewarding and fulfilling. If you are interested in becoming an Odyssey Hospice, Bedside Blessing Volunteer, please contact, Laura Roweton @ 352-622-9331 or lroweton@odsyhealth.com August 26 is known as Womens Equality Day. On that date in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. Social Security treats men and women equally. Men and women with identical earnings histories are treated exactly the same. However, there are things women in particular should know about Social Security. Although treated equally by Social Security, there are trends and differences in lifestyle that can affect benefits. For example, women tend to care for many people: spouses, children, and parents. Taking time away from the workplace to care for a newborn child or aging parent can have an impact on your future Social Security benefits. Also, despite significant strides through the years, women are more likely to earn less over a lifetime than men. Women are less often covered by private retirement plans, and they are more dependent on Social Security in their retirement years. And, women tend to live about five years longer than men, which means more years depending on Social Security and other income or savings. If a woman is married to a man who earns significantly more than she does, it is likely she will qualify for a larger benefit amount on his record than on her own. Want to learn more?

We provide alternate media as well to reach as many women as possible and to provide information the way youd like to receive it.

Friday, August 10, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com It is funny where you pick up an idea. I know I was not born with a truck full of ideas like some people. Take, for example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has more ideas than you can shake a stick at, and believe me; I have shaken many a stick at her, behind her back, of course. I have to scrap around for an idea and then when I do find one I am so exhausted from the search that I am not sure what to do with it. Then an idea comes looking for me. That is a strange phenomenon. I was watching the news with my wife when we heard the lead story of the day about the Chick-fil-A appreciation day. Im not sure I know all the political ins and outs of that sort of thing. Everything seems to have some kind of political overtone to it these days. What was once a matter of morality has become a matter of policy. Politics have invaded every aspect of our life, and I am so looking forward to heaven where, someone told me and I cannot reveal the source, but the word is out, there are no politics in heaven. Whenever you have an opportunity to go out and buy some chicken, I say take it. It was not hard to convince my better half to go out for supper. We do not do it too much anymore. What with the traffic and the finances, it hardly seems worthwhile. That is why I always brag on my wifes cooking. Oh, boy, I will say after a meal, you cant get anything this good at some restaurants. She smiles, but I suspect she knows what I am saying. Well, we did try to go to Chick-fil-A but we could not get within 17 blocks of it. It seems everybody and their third cousin was out getting chicken for supper. Oh well, you cannot participate in everything, but at least we tried. As we circled the block for the 19th time, the idea came to me. If we can have a Chick-fil-A appreciation day because the head of the company said he believed in some traditional values, then why cant I? I believe in everything traditional. I am the most traditional person you will ever meet. Before there was a me, there was not much that was traditional. I go back so far I can remember when dirt was clean. I want the whole world to know that I believe in tradition and I am not just fiddling on the roof. I know it is old fashioned but I believe in the Bible. If it is in the Bible, I believe it, although I must confess I do not understand everything in the Bible. But then, nobody understands everything in their world. The smartest person knows he does not know everything. I built my life upon the values stressed in the Bible and I take it as the Word of God. I believe in singing hymns in church. Most people in America have never heard a hymn let alone singing one in a congregational setting. If you would go to the average person on the street corner and ask what their favorite hymn was, they would not know what you are talking about. I know tradition is oldfashioned, but I still embrace it. If it is traditional, I probably believe it. Some people believe that if it is new, it is OK and if it is old, throw it away. Experience teaches us that it is the exact opposite. Take medicine for example. Sure, many people have benefited from modern advancements in medicine. I am appreciative of every advancement. But then, if medicine has made such inroads into our culture why are more and more people sick? Why are the hospitals full and overflowing? Why are there not enough doctors to take care of all of the sick? I am thankful for what medicine has done, but for every cure it achieves, three more diseases pop up sticking out their tongue. Yes, I believe in tradition. Most people are traditional in many areas of their life. Do you realize that it was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to drink water? It was traditional for your great, great, great grandfather to go to sleep at night To get up in the morning And the list goes on and on. Those things, which are traditional, are those things that have endured the wearing element of time. In light of all of this traditional head-wagging, I want to propose another appreciation day. This coming Sunday I declare it to be Local Church Appreciation Day. Everybody who believes in traditional values will show up at the church of their choice and make their vote count. I know it will be a shock and we run the danger that many church ceilings will cave in, but I think it is worth the risk. Of course, there is the possibility that when many pastors see their sanctuary filled with people they will pass out in sheer shock. In the meantime, I am going to stick to what the Bible says here regardless of what happens. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV). Every Sunday should be local Church Appreciation Day.Rev. James L.

this is our liberal media taking the side of these mayors. Their reporting minimized the crowds that filled Chick-fil-A all day long, they wanted to talk to the gay employees to see how their feelings were hurt by his believing in traditional marriage. All this makes we wonder just how far we have gone toward destroying the very moral backbone of America. As Ronald Reagan said, If we ever forget we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under. I have said it before and it is becoming more and more evident with each passing day. What America do you want? Its bigger than the economy or any one issue, its about God continuing to bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala CompromiseOK, OK, OK. You want compromise? Here it is: When liberals use their scare tactic, firing police, firefighters, and teachers, this is our counter offer: 1. We will trade one police officer for 5 TSA agents. 2. One firefighter for 5 EPA (Agenda 21) agents. 3. One teacher for 5 Obama czars. The price is escalating. We want a bang for our buck. 4. One Social Security check for 10 welfare leeches. 5. One Medicare Card for 100 illegal aliens. 6. One socialist country for one free country. 7. We are honest about what we want, and what we are trying to do. 8. What can we offer to get a little transparency from the opposition? 9. We play fair. 10. We could go on all day. What does the opposition have to offer? D.I. Larson OcalaSmall businessesWhy is there so much concentration of Americas future in creating jobs for our workers toward small businesses? Are small businesses all that is left for us to leave to our families after we are gone. The entrepreneurs who created theseFriday, August 10, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, August 10, 2012 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES One of the easiest ways to make better-for-you recipes is to swap out some ingredients. In these recipes, mayo, high-calorie dressings and heavy sauces get swapped out for creamy guacamole or flavorful fat-free salsas. Swaps like these make it easy to enjoy your favorite recipes even when youre cutting back on fat and calories. All-natural and preservative-free Wholly Guacamole brings a whole new dimension of tastiness to Asian Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Fettuccini and it cuts down on the bad fats typically found in these dishes. The Salsa Salmon recipe gets a healthful zip of flavor from Wholly Salsa and you can make it as spicy as you like. Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat:Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs.Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich.Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner.Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com. Grilled Chicken FettucciniYield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat. Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 min utes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow direc tions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Saut pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese.Smallchanges makeabig difference EnjoyGuac AnyTime YouWantIts not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados arent always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water. WhatsSoGreat AboutAvocados?About 75 percent of an avocados calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados:Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.Are rich in vitamins B, E and K. Are high in fiber compared to other fruits including 25 percent soluble fiber. Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free.Salsa SalmonYield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (its better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375F. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in an oven-proof dish. Divide salsa evenly, spoon over salmon steaks and scatter olives on top. Top evenly with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (or recommended cooking time on salmon package). Sprinkle with parsley to serve.Asian Chicken SaladYield: 3 servings Juice from half a lime 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 2/3 cup Wholly Guacamole 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 5-ounce package spring salad mix 1/4 cup red onion, diced 1/4 cup tomato, diced 1/2 of a 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chopped 3 grilled chicken breasts Crispy chow mein noodles, for garnish Add lime juice, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, sesame oil, guacamole, rice wine vinegar, salt, water and soy sauce to blender. Blend until uniform. Place dressing in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Toss salad mix, onion, tomato, oranges, dressing and 2 table spoons rough-chopped cilantro in a bowl. Divide salad between 3 plates and top with sliced grilled chicken and chow mein noodles. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 small businesses realize that is all that is left after 28 years of shipping our jobs to other countries. Lets face it, the number one priority for business is profit. That is a proper goal when you consider that the investors and stock holders of these companies are presently receiving the best of the best for their efforts. We must now question our priorities that resulted in huge profits for these businesses and high unemployment for the American workers. In relatively just a few short years we have gone from the greatest manufacturing country in the world that paid good wages to our American workers to where we are now, a country where minimum wage is our new goal. Since the 1970s, corporations have been moving American businesses to foreign countries without any thought except profit for their share holders. Creating good paying American jobs should not be just our goal but should be a priority for small and large businesses supported by our government.

Maybe for a few weeks the phone calls, the junk mail, all that will stop. I dont mind newspaper ads, of course, and I dont mind commercials on television. When youre watching a program, you expect ads, political or otherwise. What I do resent is the intrusion on my personal time, jumping up from the easy chair to answer the phone, only to hear a recording and see that the call is coming from the 305 area code, or 813, or even out of state. To this date only one candidate has called my home personally, and unfortunately I wasnt there and he had to leave a message. But hes the one Im going to vote for. At least he didnt have a bunch of hired guns doing the calling. I dont like going to the mailbox and picking up seven pieces of mail, including one first-class envelope and six pieces of junk. I dont know which candidates are sending me stuff I pretty much throw it out. I probably should have started a list, using that to decide who I would ignore at the ballot box. Of course, then I might not have anyone left to vote for. Here at the newspaper office we get a lot of material meant for us to publish. I received an anonymous mailing last week supposedly revealing some financial irregularities about one of the County Commission candidates. Sorry, but if you havent got the guts to sign your name, Im not going to waste my reading it all. Then there was the anonymous caller who wanted to give us the scoop on a certain candidate. Unfortunately, his name and number were on the Caller ID. That told me something about his thought process, and I ignored him. As a weekly community newspaper, we dont endorse candidates. Endorsements are believed to have started back around the mid-19th century, when The New York Times urged the election of Mr. Lincoln to the presidency. In those days, people didnt have access to commercials and to the candidates themselves. Newspapers were the conduit between the candidates and the readers there was no other way for people to get information. Now, we try to cover the events at which the candidates appear, but these events are open to the public, and many members of the electorate take advantage by meeting the candidates themselves. While bigger, daily newspapers might feel the need to endorse, smaller community newspapers present the news and the ads, and let you make up your own mind. So just remember, despite how annoyed you might be by the intrusion of the candidates, Aug. 14 is the day to vote. Its your responsibility to choose the people who you feel suit our county the best.

If you follow international news, youve undoubtedly seen many cases where oppressed people finally get the right to vote, and at that first election in their country they turn out in droves. They truly appreciate the chance to choose the people who will make up their government. Here in America, that isnt always the case. While we have the right to vote, there are many who dont take advantage of the privilege, giving many excuses as to why they dont take the few minutes to fill out the ballot. Next Tuesday, Aug. 14, is a big day for dozens of candidates in and around Marion County. Its the date of the primary election. Voter turnout is traditionally low for primary elections, but because of various scenarios this is a big election in the county for races including the sheriff, school superintendent, school board and county commission. There are also two important ballot issues involving taxes, both put on there by the request of the School Board. Each would bring a slight increase in the property tax. Its your county. But if youre not willing to take the initiative of voting, then, frankly, just keep quiet for the next couple of years. As far as we are concerned, if you dont vote, you lose your right to complain. Remember a couple of things. You need a photo ID, and you need to check your recent mailing from the supervisor of elections telling you where to vote. Early voting is also available through Saturday at various locations, listed elsewhere in todays edition. While we generally prefer the traditional voting method of going to the polls on Election Day, we do understand that some people prefer to go to the polls early. If it helps get more voters out, so be it. Either way, please make sure you cast your vote. Its your government. Dont allow someone else to make decisions for you.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont gripe if you dont vote First election season about to end LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Oak Run pavingMarion County did it again. Oak Run had the privilege of the county digging up our thoroughfare twice. Both projects were left in worse condition after the completion. I believe the latest project could have been completed by two or three long-haired, tattooed, ear-ringed teenaged kids with a couple of shovels. Mr. Ghumann, this is ridiculous, a bumpy washboard at best. You have influence with the county. Use it. Rudy Schasel Oak Run residentAmericans stood upIf you are a God-fearing American, you have to share my pride in seeing so many stand up for Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, Aug. 1. This wasnt just in Ocala and the rest of Florida, it was throughout most of our nation! It sent a very strong message to the far left mayors of Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco: We dont approve of your telling a business you are not wanted in our town because you believe that marriage is for a man and woman. Just who do you think you are? Where have you been throughout world history? Most of us always shared this definition of marriage and we still do. If you are undecided about the direction our country is headed, look at the politics of these mayors. What will they decide we cant do next time? When will they be telling us where to live, what car to drive, or what our pastors can say from their pulpit? If the liberals stay in power, we havent seen anything yet! They have shown us their vision for America. The Chicago mayor stated that Chicago has a different value system than Chick-fil-A. I want to believe his value system is different from the vast majority of us as evidenced by the super crowds on Aug. 1. We tried more than once to get into Chick-fil-A on College Road, but couldnt even get in the parking lot. We will be back, more than ever. One of the saddest things about Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN You will strain your eyes looking for a significant difference between President Obamas and Mitt Romneys positions on Iran and the prospects of an Israeli attack on the Islamic republic. Both say all options are on the table. All. That includes a fullscale military attack with even nuclear weapons. This isnt alarmism. Irans facilities are undoubtedly well protected. No light force would be capable of taking them out. The Romney campaign created a stir recently when a key foreign-policy adviser, Dan Senor, seemed to up the ante by saying If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that [nuclear weapons capability, the governor would respect that decision. The remark apparently went too far, because Romney had to clarify his position I respect the right of Israel to defend itself, he told CBS. But because Im on foreign soil, I dont want to be creating new foreign policy for my country or in any way to distance myself from the foreign policy of our nation. This indicates that Senor said nothing that Romney wishes to disavow. Senor just said it in the wrong place on foreign soil. Americans have this foolish rule that politics stops at the waters edge. But as the classical-liberal critic of foreign intervention Felix Morley once said, politics stops at the waters edge only when policy stops at the waters edge which, for the American empire, it does not. Romney might differ from Obama over where to paint the red line that Iran may not cross. Obama says Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon. Romney and his old friend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu say Iran must not be allowed to possess a nuclear capability. That would include possession of uranium and the relevant knowledge. Iran has crossed that line already. Hence the Romney-Netanyahu position sounds marginally more hawkish, though the real difference may not be terribly large. Also, Obama has pleaded with Israel to give economic sanctions against Iran time to work, but Netanyahu said recently he sees no hope in their working. He appears to be itching for war. On the other hand, he doesnt have full support from his military and security establishment. Prominent Israeli officials, active and retired, have said that Iran has not decided to build a weapon and that war with Iran would be stupid. Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Iran would not attack Israel even if it acquired a nuke. It may well be that the war talk is for domestic consumption or is part of a goodcop/bad-cop strategy with the American government. In some ways it doesnt matter. In the past, games of diplomatic chicken have ended in wars no one wanted, and it could happen again. Obama, Romney, and Netanyahu should realize how reckless their course is. Iran justifiably feels besieged. Economic sanctions against the country, which were recently intensified by Obama and Congress, constitute warfare under international law. Moreover, the U.S. and Israeli governments are conducting covert operations against Iran. In other words, the United States and Israel are already at war with the Iranian people. Great hardship is imposed on them, because their ability to trade for consumer goods has been disrupted and the value of their currency undermined. This is where the policy imposed by the humane Obama and supported by Romney has brought the world. And why? They will tell you that Iran must not have a nuclear weapon. But there is no evidence that Iran is developing one. Its religious leader has forsworn such weapons, and the countrys uranium is under the close watch of the International Atomic Energy Agency; that is more than one can say about Israel, which has hundreds of nukes and refuses to join Iran in signing the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. War with Iran would be a disaster for everyone except the war profiteers. Preventing it must be a priority.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.

For information about On Top of the World Communities, visit http://www.OnTopoftheWorldCommuniti es.comSoftball LeagueThe summer OTOW Softball league is midway through the season and presently the Wise Way Team is leading the league with a four-game lead and one tie that has to be completed. T he Wise Way Team seems to be rolling along at a good clip and winning those close games with Angelo, their pitcher, who consistently confuses batters and makes good plays on the mound. There are two teams who are close enough to overtake the Wise Way Team, though, as they continue to remain close enough and can make a move at any time. Hot on the heels of the Wise Way Team are the Stone Creek Team and the Florida Eye Team. The team with the better shot is the Stone Creek Team, which is the youngest of the teams in the league and has a good defensive team and plenty of fast runners. The Stone Creek Team has been the pick of the league to take it all, but they have been unable to muster up a string of victories, as the hitting seems to fade in some games. Close behind the Stone Creek team is Florida Eye, but their big hitter, Jeff, is unable to make some of the games, which at times puts a strain on the team because they depend on his bat to get the strong hitting he possesses. Unfortunately, they just lost two of their key players with hamstring pulls that requires some rest periods. This may put a damper on the Florida Eye Team and could start them reeling if they cant fill the gap. Far behind is the Cebert Wealth Team, which just cant seem to get those wins. In quite a few of the games, the Cebert Wealth Team goes into the last inning with a lead, but it seems the team has a lastinning jinx resulting in miscues and letting the lead slip away. Things can, however, change because there are still quite a few games to go, so anything can happen.

St. Helens into a national park? -Esther Monaghan, Boston, MA Mount St. Helens, one of the less prominent yet massive peaks of Washington States Cascade Range, made history on May 18, 1980 by erupting with the force of 500 atomic bombs, devastating 230 square miles of formerly verdant forest and killing 57 people. After considerable debate about what to do with the decimated landscape in the aftermath, Congress sided with scientists advocating it be left alone for research and education. In 1982 Congress created the 172-squaremile Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to be managed by the U.S. Forest Service, which had already been overseeing the forests on the flanks of the mountain as part of the surrounding 1.3 million acre Gifford Pinchot National Forest. But in 2007 federal budget cuts coupled with diminishing visitation led the Forest Service to close one of its two primary visitor centers at Mount St. Helens and scale back on its interpretive and management services. At that point, representatives from surrounding communities and environmental groups and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell came together in an effort to convince Congress to switch Mount St. Helens over to a national park, which would ensure a larger funding pool for visitor services and amenities and ideally spur more visitation, which would in turn mean more business for struggling local communities. Instead of pushing for national park status, however, Cantwell and her Congressional colleagues asked the Forest Service to detail how they plan to protect Mount St. Helens while expanding visitor services and recreational opportunities. The Forest Service subsequently put into place a new plan which, with help from Will Mount St. Helens become a park? A view of Mount ST. Helens in Washington. the recently formed Mount St. Helens Institute, would expand services and explore new options for overnight visitation. Tourism has since grown, but many still want to see Mount St. Helens a national park.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Read the classifieds parks are huge economic engines, pumping nearly $13 billion in economic activity into gateway communities while supporting 250,000 jobs. For every dollar spent on national parks, four dollars are returned to the economies of gateway communities, says Sean Smith, policy director for the National Parks Conservation Association. More than seven million people visited Washingtons national parks last year alone and national parks nationwide received near record-breaking visitors, despite one of the toughest economies in decades. But perhaps more important, says Smith, is that Mount St. Helens is likely the most iconic American landscape currently not in the national park system [with natural, cultural and historic wonders on par with other parks such as Olympic, Zion, and Crater Lake. He adds that national park status would better protect Mount St. Helens natural treasures from potential housing developments and even a proposed open pit gold mine that would be visible from the main visitor center and would decimate one of the most remote and pristine parts of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest adjacent to Mount St. Helens lower flanks. While the debate continues, MountSt. Helens remains an amazing example of Mother Natures fury and her restorative powers. Whether its a national monument or a national park, its well worth a visit. Dear E arthTalk: Do env ironmentalists think the E ndangered S pec ies Ac t has b een a success or failure with regard to protec ting b iodiv ersity in the U.S.? -R on McKnight, Trenton, NJ While that very question has been a subject of debate already for decades, most environmental advocates are thankful such legislation is in place and proud of their government for upholding such high standards when it comes to preserving rare species of plants and animals. That said, critics of the legislation make some solid points. For starters, only one percent of species (20 out of 2,000) under the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) have recovered sufficiently to qualify for delisting. And the millions of dollars spent on often failed recovery efforts are difficult to justify, especially in these otherwise tough economic times. But even though the vast majority of species protected under the ESA have not recovered doesnt undermine the significance of those speciesbald eagles, gray wolves, and grizzly bear to name a few that have rebounded thanks to forward thinking legislation and wildlife management. Louisa Wilcox of the Natural Resources Defense Council is grateful to the ESA for the continued existence of grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park. After listing, the government cleaned up the massive garbage problems in Yellowstone Park, which reduced the habituation of bears to human foodsa pattern that often leads to grizzly deaths, she reports. Commercial sheep herds were moved out of core grizzly habitat while hundreds of miles of roads on public lands in the region were closed to improve the iconic bears chances for survival. The result: The Yellowstone grizzly population more than doubled while human/bear interactions and incursions by hungry grizzlies onto local ranches have declined. So, by any reckoning, the Yellowstone grizzly bear story is an ESA success, concludes Wilcox. To test whether or not the ESA has been effective on a grander scale, the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), another leading green group, compared for its 2012 On Time, On Target report the actual recovery rate of 110 listed species with the projected recovery rate in their federal recovery plans. The 110 species occupy all 50 U.S. states, include all major taxonomic groups, and have various listing lengths. CBD found that the ESA had a remarkably successful recovery rate: 90 percent of species are recovering at the rate specified by their federal recovery plan, adding: On average, species recovered in 25 years, while their recovery plan predicted 23 yearsa 91 percent timeliness accomplishment. CBD also confirmed the hypothesis that the majority of listed species have not enjoyed protection for long enough to warrant an expectation of recovery yet. percent of species have not yet reached their expected recovery year, reports CBD, adding that on average species have been listed for just 32 years, while their recovery plans required 46 years for success. This recent studys findings echo the results of an earlier (2006) analysis in the Northeastern U.S. that found some 93 percent of federally listed species there were stabilized or improving since getting ESA protection and 82 percent were on track to meet recovery goals. When judged in the light of meeting recovery plan timelines for recovery, the Endangered Species Act is remarkably successful, says CBD. Few laws of any kind can boast a 90 percent success rate.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Positive factors continue to dominate following a recent change in both your professional and personal lives. Expect to make contact with someone from your past. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Workplace stability allows you to continue making progress on your projects. But dont ignore your personal life. Spend more quality time with those special folks.

After renting for a couple of years, Mick and Donna moved to Cherrywood in February of this year. Four days after their arrival, Eve Houghtaling drafted Donna into working on the Valentines Day Dance. Soon, both Mick and Donna were a regular part of the active social life here at Cherrywood. When asked what they liked about living here they commented on the friendliness of the residents and on the large number of activities available here. Donna also mentioned how she feels safe in the neighborhood. With their ready smiles and quick sense of humor, both Donna and Mick are easy to talk to and fun to be around. Donna enjoys Tai Chi; Water Aerobics; Bingo; Trivia and all the dances. Mick likes playing pool; poker nights and both share a passion for travel and Bocce Ball. You will see them at most of our functions because as I said before, they may be new to our community but they have quickly become huge assets to our social activities and to our Cherrywood family.From Your ReporterAs youve seen in this column, if you have any questions about Cherrywood, please feel free to ask and I will do my best to get you an answer.

COPS stands for Citizens Observer Patrol, and the local volunteer unit, based out of the Sheriffs Southwest District Office, is recruiting new members. COPS members drive around the community, acting as the eyes and ears of the Sheriffs Office, according to coordinator Duane Johnson. Members are asked to drive at least four hours per month, but preferably eight, keeping watch over the various neighborhoods throughout the district. When a member spots something suspicious or a possible crime in progress, he does not intervene but radios for a deputy to come to the scene. They also do vacation checks and maintain the business registry. COPS members are not allowed to carry any sort of weapons while on duty. Some are also part of the Volunteer Emergency Response Team (VERT) and help at accident scenes, road closures, etc. Currently, the Southwest District has 38 members. Johnson said they would like to get up to 50. When asked what it takes to be a member, administrative officer Jack Walsh said, drive, motivation and dedication. Aside from those intangibles, applicants must have driving skills and a Florida drivers license, a clean driving record and no criminal record. An application must be filled out and a background check will be conducted. Applicants must be at least 21 years old. A luncheon will be held Aug. 15 at the Sheriffs district office, sponsored by Bob Evans. Anyone wishing to apply should call either 598-1547, 237-8214 or the Sheriffs district office at 402-6060, preferably before Saturday, Aug. 11. An application can be picked up at the office on State Road 200. One the applicants are approved, they will go through four hours of video training and lectures, and two four-hour ridealongs with training officers. There are also constant two-hour training meetings and videos. Applicants can drive single or in pairs. They are a big help, said Capt. Jim Burton of the Southwest District. We depend a lot on them.

BY JIM CLARK EditorGet those special black pens out its time to fill out the ballots. The polling places will be open on Tuesday, Aug. 14, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., as Marion County voters join others around the state in the primary election. Several county offices are on the ballot, and some will be decided in this election. For the non-partisan races for School Board and judgeships, this is the final. In School Board District 1, Woody Clymer and Nancy Stacy are facing off, while in District 2, Bob Dobkowski, known as Bobby D, and Carol Ely will square off to fill that seat. For County Judge 3, Leann Mackey-Barnes and Tommy Thompson are the finalists, and for County Judge 4, Paul J. Guilfoil and Robert E. Landt will face the voters in the final. There is a multi-county race for public defender featuring Mike Graves and Bo Samargya. There are also two tax issues on the ballot, both involving the School Board. Everyone can vote in the above races. Countywide offices up for election include sheriff, superintendent of schools and supervisor of elections. All, however, are Republican-only primaries, as there is another candidate waiting in the wings for the November election. For sheriff, Chris Blair and Dan Kuhn will settle the Republican nomination issue. The winner will face Bernie DeCastro of the Constitution Party in November. There is also a write-in candidate qualified, Judson Cauthen Spence Jr. The superintendent of schools race finds three Republicans fighting for the nomination, including school system employees George Tomyn and Wally Wagoner and current School Board member Jackie Porter. The winner of this three-way battle goes on to face Democrat Diana Greene in November. Its time to vote Polls open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. PLEASESEEELECTION, PAGE3 Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives met with five other Florida law enforcement agencies to gather facts, photos and videos in a string of at least 17 commercial burglaries in the month of July. Detectives believe the burglars are targeting liquor stores and other businesses near the North Central Florida I-75 corridor. Between Saturday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 31, the suspects smashed or pried open glass doors at liquor stores in St. Cloud, Belleview, Lady Lake, Wildwood and Ocala. While in Marion County, the thieves burglarized a Dairy Queen and a wireless cellphone store. Detectives believe the suspects are two tall males who have been loading their loot into a stolen van. So far, they have used two different vans. One of the vans was recovered by law enforcement and contained numerous items from several burglary locations. Marion County Sheriffs detectives released video from the Dairy Queen burglary, showing one of the suspects wearing bright orange or pink gloves. Both suspects are covered from head to toe in clothing. Anyone with information can contact the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 352-732-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867. Detectives from Ocala, Alachua, Lady Lake, Wildwood, Belleview Police Departments are also asking citizens with information to call.
