BY JIM CLARK Editor Volunteer board members and firefighters are being sought by Friendship Station 21 of Marion County Fire Rescue. At the State Road 200 Coalition meeting on Monday, Aug. 13, Linda McFarland, Ed Lanza and Dave Heller from Station 21s volunteers made a plea for board members. The board serves as a support group for the full-time firefighters. Volunteers man the rehab truck, which provides air and cool drinks, among other things, to firefighters on the scene of large incidents. Volunteer firefighters must go through training and will respond to some incidents, but do not wear air packs or enter burning buildings. Those who might wish to serve on the board should get information at Station 21, which is on 95th Street near Lowes. They must pass a background check and must submit a resume. Prior firefighting experience is not necessary. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKFrom the left, Marion County Fire Rescue Station 21 volunteers Linda McFarland, Ed Lanza and Dave Heller visited the State Road 200 Coalition on Monday, Aug. 13, to discuss the need for volunteers. Fire Station 21 looking for volunteer board members BY JIM CLARK Editor Voters turned out for the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 14, and in the process sent one county commissioner packing. They also selected Republican candidates for sheriff and school superintendent. David Moore was the Republican primary winner for the nomination for County District 1, unseating Mike Amsden. Moore grabbed 51.14 percent to Amsdens 48.86 percent. Moore must face a write-in candidate in November. County Commissioner Stan McClain survived a tight battle with Jeff Gold. McClain had 52.26 percent to 47.74 percent for Gold. McClain also faces a writein hopeful in November. Write-in candidates are not listed on the ballot. A more competitive County Commission race will take place in November for District 5. Republican Earl Arnett tallied 36.16 percent, good enough to outpoll three other candidates, including Francine Johannesen at 27.34, Pat Gabriel at 24.68 and Butch Verrando at 11.82 percent. Arnett will go up against a Democratic challenger, Jessica Cookie Hadley, in the general election. Im very proud to have been selected, commented Arnett as the evening drew to a close at the elections office. Final totals were posted at 9:20 p.m. PLEASESEERACES PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK Editor There were several races decided on Tuesday, Aug. 14, during the primary, because there will be no opposition in November for the winners. Only one of the decisions was even close. There was also one primary winner who was out of his element waiting at the Elections Office as he advanced to the November general election with an overwhelming victory. In the School Board District 1 race, Nancy Stacy defeated Woody Clymer, 52.25 percent to 47.75 percent. This was a non-partisan election with no one running in November. Another final decision was in School Board District 2, where Carol Ely downed Robert Dobkowski, 61.97 to 38.03 percent.

Arnett said he ran because I looked at the candidates who were already running, and they didnt have the (business) background or experience. I felt the time had come to step up. The bottom line is I have 40 years of business experience and knowledge. He said he was a businessman, not a politician. Two other closely watched races went down to the wire, with late surges gaining victories for the candidates. In the race for Sheriff, Dan Kuhn finished with 52.88 percent, while Chris Blair came in at 47.12 percent. Kuhn faces Constitution Party member Bernie DeCastro in November, as well as a writein candidate. There are no Democrats in the race. George Tomyn won the School Superintendent primary, in a tough threeway race dominated by some negative campaigning. Tomyn scored 41.32 percent, current School Board member Jackie Porter registered 33.03 percent and Wally Wagoner finished third at 25.65 percent. Tomyn will go up against Diana Greene, a Democrat, in November. Both are administrators in the school system. Were very excited, very happy that we were able to run a professional, clean campaign and thats what youll see from me and my team in the future, an excited Tomyn said. Well present everything professionally, and I believe thats what will lead us to victory in November. Mike Graves won the multi-county decision for public defender.Jeff Bryan of the Riverland News in Dunnellon contributed to this report.

Both school issues on the ballot were defeated Tuesday, the first by 4.4 percent and the second by 17.56 percent Waiting for returns was tough for a pair of contenders who took easy victories. In a county judge race, Tommy Thompson defeated Leann MackeyBarnes, 59.33 to 40.67 percent. Thompson, who has tried criminal cases as an attorney, said it was like presenting the whole case and then waiting for the jury to come in with a decision. The other county judge race went to Robert Landt over Paul Guilfoil, 56.53 percent to 43.47 percent. Assistant Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox would normally have been in the back of the office taking part in the count, but since he was running, he could not take part in his normal work, and waited out front with the candidates and the press. After it became obvious that he would win easily, collecting 70.6 percent of the vote over Barbara Ruse, he commented, Im tired, excited, extremely happy. Those are my first emotions. Im happy with what we have done. He did add that he had an upcoming battle with Democrat Judge Cochran in November. Now in 83 days and 22 hours, we get to do it all again.

In a few minutes the plane took off and as we reached our altitude she, while still staring out the window, said to me, Next time well take separate planes. She paused for a moment and then said, In fact, will take separate airports. I think I am going to stick to what the Bible says. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12 KJV).

This donation is part of a national 3-million meal project in Tampa that will rally 20,000 people from the Bay area to hand-package rice, lentils, veggies and Himalayan sea salt into easy-to-make meals. This 25-cent per meal casserole will be used to stock the crisis food pantries in public schools to help hungry kids focus on their education and not on hunger. The event titled Project 3, will mobilize and empower the Tampa community to make a difference in the fight against hunger right here at home. FCE has currently selected the Marion County school district as one of the recipients of these nutritious and vital meals: Meals will be delivered throughout the first week of September to each school district, who will determine how the meals will be distributed to students. Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) is a nonprofit organization based in Orlando. The FCE movement was launched in 2010. FCE is a social charity that empowers and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children. Feeding Children Everywhere donating food to schools With school just around the corner, the community is invited get ready for the upcoming year at the first Back to School Safety Fair at Paddock Mall, sponsored by Sears and Coke. The event will be Saturday, Aug. 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event will offer multiple health and safety awareness exhibits, including, child identification, finger printing, backpack usage safety, bicycle and helmet safety, child seat checks, and more. Paddock Mall wants to encourage safety awareness for moms, dads, and their children.

Some of these Jews are not affiliated with a synagogue; and a sizable percentage simply dont feel comfortable in a synagogue setting. The local branch of the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, has presented its own High Holiday services option, providing free Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services in a warm and inclusive setting. Chabads services are userfriendly, making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the beginner and the advanced. Song, commentary and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books, enable those of all levels to become active participants in the services. According to Jewish tradition, on the Jewish New Year, the doors of Heaven are open. G-d accepts prayers from everyone, said Lubavitch Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who is hosting free services in Ocala. The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community. Rabbi Yossi continued, The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory, insisted that Judaism is accessible to all Jews. During the Jewish High Holidays, accessibility can translate into different factors for different people, such as a nonjudgmental atmosphere, affordability of the services, or the ability for a beginner to follow along. Our goal is to lower the barriers of entry, and encourage each and every Jew to actively participate in these most holy and introspective days. Rosh Hashanah begins this year after sundown on Sept. 16, and extends until nightfall on Sept. 18. For more info or to RSVP visit www.JewishMarion.org or email info@jewishmarion.org Rosh Hashana Eve. September 16 services will take place at the Hilton of Ocala at 7:15 p.m. Rosh Hashana Day 1, and Day 2 Sept. 17th and 18 will take place at the Chabad Jewish Center 3509 S.W. 34th Ave. Circle. Services: 10 a.m., Shofar Blowing at 11:30 a.m. Chabad offers services geared for Jews of all backgrounds Fire Captain Alan Peters with Ocala Fire Rescue has achieved 30 years of service. He currently is a fire safety inspector in the Fire Prevention Division. Captain Peters was hired in 1982, and was one of the first paramedics to work at Ocala Fire Rescue.

Y esterday Elvis Presleys fans gathered in Memphis to commemorate the 35th anniversary of his death. Commonly known by the single name Elvis, he remains one of Americas most popular singers. Todays Pun Alley rocks and rolls with Elvis and his many impersonators. Elvis Lives Andrews mother gave him twenty dollars to buy lunch for himself and his sister Terri at the diner down the street. On the way, they passed a man selling puppies for twenty dollars each. Unable to resist, Andrew bought one, named it Elvis, and went home. While he stayed outside playing with it, Terri went inside. Back so soon? her mother asked. Yes, said Terri. Im afraid we never made it to the diner. Why not? Because Andrew spent twenty dollars on Elvis. Elvis? Thats right, explained Terri. He ate nothin, bought a hound dog. Poor imitatorAn Elvis impersonator was loudly rehearsing late one night when there was a knock on his door. He opened it and found an enraged neighbor who asked, Do you know theres a little old lady sick upstairs? No, replied the impersonator, but if you sing a few bars, Ill try.His songs Did you hear about the new line of Elvis Presley themed steakhouses? They will be for people who love meat tender. Elvis had a song about dieting. It was Return To Slender. There was the time when Elvis went shopping in California during an earthquake and survived to sing a song about it: A Mall Shook Up. A long-lost Elvis song about a pig swept away in a flood has just been found. Its called You Aint Nothing but a Drowned Hog. The difference between Elvis and smart blondes is that Elvis has been sighted. In his salty early rock and roll days he made lots of dough and popularized The Twist. Some called him Elvis Pretzel-ey The face of Elvis appears on a Vegas nightclub marquee. Fans see it as a sign.His impersonatorsHe was so bad he couldnt find anyone to sing with, so he bought a duet yourself kit. The impersonator with the circus sang with some other performers. The ringmaster always announced, The next act will be a couple of jugglers, accompanied by a little music in a jugular vein. He sang in Key West. It was the first time he knew what key he was in. They tell me you love music. Yes, but never mind; keep on singing. He sang with one of the great bands of the day; at night they were not so good. Old Elvis impersonators never die; they just get out of sequins. He sang that song in a haunting manner. Do you think so? Yes, there was just the ghost of a resemblance to the original Elvis. The difference between most impersonators and a savings bond is that a savings bond eventually matures and makes money. That impersonator has a marvelous voice. He can hold one of his notes for half a minute. Thats nothing, I have held one of his notes for two years. The town has a big St. Patricks Day celebration, with a parade, green beer, and impersonator singing rock and roll music. Or at least, they claim its rock and roll; but its just a weak imitation. Its sham-rock. One impersonator believed it was his best job; but eventually he found he wasnt noteworthy.Seasoned musiciansI went to a great concert last week. It was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel. They had an impressive lineup an Elvis impersonator, Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66, Rosemary Clooney and 80s TV star Tyne Daly from Cagney & Lacey. The ensemble was billed as Presley, Serge, Rosemary and Tyne.Part timeStanding in line at a grocery store, Tom was pleased to hear bits of his favorite Elvis song. Unfortunately, the music would begin to play, only to quickly stop. The stores sound system did not seem to be working properly. Turning to the woman standing behind him in line. Tom said he hoped the store would get their system fixed. As the music started up again, Tom smiled and said, There it is again. Sir, it is indeed Elvis, but its not from the store, the woman replied with a smile, Your cell phone is ringing.

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

JAMES My curiosity was piqued by the number of people reading the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey out in the open. Was the book just fun trash porn or a real modern-day romance that had drawn so many readTwisted fairy tale will leave you bored ers to it, particularly women? I was ready for anything when I ordered it for my Kindle Fire. What I wasnt prepared for was to be bored out of my skull. Within a few pages I was speed reading, convincing myself that any best seller this bad had to get better. The books general yuckiness comes not from the explicit sex but rather from the forgettable charactersa clumsy virgin and a wealthy borderline rapistand an execrable writing style. Anastasia Steele who has spent her young days reading classic English literature has learned nothing from it as she flushes crimson time and again and gushes after a sexual encounter with the handsome Christian Grey, My inner goddess is doing the dance of veils. On the other hand, had the book been better written it might be downright dangerous for the message it sends to love-starved females. That core message seems to be that happiness is possible with a controlling, possessive, cruel man who never allows his woman to act normally. And if only she could find the sad, lonely side of this dangerous male, everything would be perfect. Its a reminder of how many abused women have blamed themselves for their unhappy mates. This twisted fairy tale belongs in the same category with the movie Pretty Woman which suggests that turning a few tricks can bring you in touch with Prince Charming. Even so, the strong reactions to this disappointing book are surprising. Men grabbing the book from their girlfriends and hurling it away; hotels replacing Gideon Bibles with Fifty Shades. To each his own. As for me, I will not be reading the rest of the trilogy.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 A fter all these years, I still enjoy watching Little League Baseball, both in person and on the tube. This past weekend the networks of ESPN were flooded with regional semifinals and finals, the last step for teams trying to get to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, which is now about to start. There were games starting at all hours, games being moved from channel to channel to accommodate rain delays and lengthy contests, so there was a desperate need for a working remote from Thursday through Sunday. I had some time off, so I parked myself in my recliner and watched games, in between answering annoying political phone calls. I have coached youth baseball, some in the Little League program and some not, since my first team in 1962. Ive been to Williamsport once (as a spectator, not as a coach) when my cousin and I went in 1966 to watch the team from West New York, New Jersey, play for the world title. Of course, with my history of cheering for teams, they lost. We sat on the famous hill in the outfield in left field, and a sudden storm left us drenched, but we stayed all the way through. In those days, only the championship game was on TV. Now, the entire World Series is on the tube and, starting recently, all regional semifinals and finals are covered, which, even for a big fan like myself, might be a bit of overkill. ESPN has set up its own terminology, ignoring what most Little League fans say and calling its coverage of the regionals the Little League World Series. For most of us, the World Series is the week in Williamsport. This past weekend was the regionals, and I dont care what ESPN calls it, misleading some people into thinking were already in Pennsylvania. But then, television isnt always concerned with accuracy, just self-promotion. The field for the Series was set last weekend, and the first games were scheduled for yesterday (Thursday). Im rooting for ParTroy East, from Parsippany, New Jersey. I briefly lived in Parsippany, in an apartment complex called Troy Hills Village (hence Par-Troy), but for the life of me I cant remember where the Little League field was (hey, give me a break, it was 1966). With my track record, you can pretty much count on New Jersey to finish second, but at least it reached the World Series. That a lot more than what I can say about my Major League team, the New York Mets. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T hey are the words that many youngsters dread and many parents await with cheers school begins next Monday, Aug. 20. Thousands of Marion County public school students will head for class that day, meaning more rush hour traffic, more young people walking along the road, and many, many more school buses out on the highways and byways of the county. That means its time for drivers around the county to watch out for the children and the buses. Its also important for drivers to know the rules of the road when it comes to stopping for the big yellow buses with the flashing red lights. With many of our residents coming from other states, where the laws might be different, education is important. So here is a summary of some of the rules for stopping for a school bus. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. In some areas, they are starting to install cameras on buses that would photograph any vehicle that passes illegally. With certain restrictions, we would be in favor of that, much moreso than red light cameras. So when you take to the road next Monday, take your time and keep it safe, both for yourselves and the young people who are headed to class. Of course, you wouldnt have to worry about school buses if all parents took the responsibility of getting their own children to school but thats another story for another day. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Watch out for the children Little League takes center stage LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen President Obama thinks he can score points on Mitt Romney by pointing out that companies acquired by Bain Capital outsourced jobs to other countries. The implication is that there is something unpatriotic in contracting for foreign labor. That is a strange position in this era of globalization, which Obama claims to favor. Romney, a self-described champion of free enterprise, defended outsourcing, right? Well, no. Instead, he said first that he wasnt running Bain at the time, and second that Obamas administration has subsidized firms that outsource labor. Some defender of free enterprise Romney turned out to be. We must look at outsourcing at two levels: as an abstract concept and as it occurs in our mixed, or corporatist, economy (we do not have a free market). The two analyses will differ. In terms of economic theory, outsourcing is simply a manifestation of the division of labor. Hardly anyone thinks the division of labor is a bad idea. Selfsufficiency is a road to poverty. Imagine what life would be like if you could have only what you and your family could produce. People once lived like that, and Im sure almost no one would want to return to those days. The division of labor is what makes specialization and rising productivity possible. We can all have a wider array of affordable consumer goods thanks to specialization and the division of labor. Because of whats known in economics as comparative advantage, we would be better off even if specialization did not lead to improved skill at our various tasks. The principle of comparative advantage points out that when people are left free, they will tend to concentrate on the work for which they have the lowest opportunity cost, leaving other work for others. Think about a high-priced lawyer who is also the fastest, most accurate typist in the world. Would this lawyer do his own typing or hire another typist to do it? To see why he would hire a typist, notice that every hour the lawyer spent typing would cost him, say, $500 in forgone attorney fees. This would not be true of any typist he hired. Its similar for groups of people around the world. In a global economy, various kinds of work will be appropriately done in different locations. Should all work be done in the United States? If self-sufficiency and buying local are bad ways to raise living standards, buying American makes no more sense. Since the division of labor is good, the more elaborate it is, the better. As Adam Smith wrote, The division of labor is limited by the extent of the market. That the extent of the market is essentially global today is in principle a good thing. Rising living standards are not the only benefit. Trade is cooperation. Global trade is global cooperation. People engaged in mutually beneficial exchanges are less likely to be attracted to war. Its bad business to kill off your customers or suppliers. One wonders why activists for world peace and against poverty are not also vocal advocates of expanded world trade. Peace through trade was a popular cause in 19th-century Britain, when Richard Cobden and John Bright spearheaded a workingand middle-class movement to oppose both tariffs and British imperialism. As noted above, our corporatist economy is not free, whatever Romney may think, but privilegeridden. Thus, decisions about where to locate jobs are likely influenced by manipulative tax laws as well as policies in lessdeveloped countries concerning land and intellectual-property, which may foreclose alternatives to working in factories. None of these policies, however, justifies interference with trade including the outsourcing of labor. Rather, advocates of freedom should focus on the malign policies directly, pointing out how they harm people worldwide who are not politically connected. The current high unemployment rate is also no grounds for restrictions, since it is other government policies that keep people out of work. Trade is good; government interference with trade is bad. AlREADER OPINIONS INVITED Outsourcing of labor is not the problem PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE9 Not an Indian name It disturbing to me the way the TV commentators and other media people, not only on the regular news, but the sports commentators as well, who regularly dont know of what they speak. Example: The sports commentators during the 2012 PGA championship, comment regularly, that the Kiawah Ocean golf course in South Carolina, is named after the Kiawah Indian tribe. But there never was a Kiawah Indian tribe. Those of us who were history majors or minors in college, get upset with these misrepresentations.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, Aug. 7, we played individual low net. The weather was hot but those who played did their best to stay cool.

Carole Dygert was closest to the pin. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on the 10th of August was the usual three best net. Because there were an uneven number of players and also guests, some of the groups were assigned blinds for determining the final score. A blind is another player picked at random with his score being used for the foursome needing help. The winners with a 193 were Al Prachel, Sam Owens, Jan Flickinger, and Ed Simnowitz. Second with 194 were Ron Catapano, Vince Conolly, and two blinds. Third with a 195 were Emmett Dowling, Old Tom Morris, Duke Slayton, and a blind. Good to see you are once again hitting the long ball, Duke! Closest to the pin were Ron Catapano, Emmett Dowling, Don Aubrey, and Virgil Hein. Congratulations go to Al Millett for shooting a great 73, and to Ron Catapano for an excellent 75. Who says the heat and humidity cause the scores to go high?

Today they are known as the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. The Kiowa name was pronounced (kaiewe), with a silent a, a long i and a short e.at the end). Those of us who took diction for voice in college, the last e is inverted to give the uh sound. The Kiowa call themselves Kaigwn, meaning Principal People. There are 12,000 still living in Oklahoma and speak English and Kiowa, plus are of the Christian faith, native American Church and traditional tribal religion. Over the years the Kiowa called themselves by other names but that is not germane here. This article is only to straighten out the misrepresentation of the Great Kiowa People by those who know no better. Golfers in particular show know this. Bill Ford Ocala Catholic invitation to President ObamaCardinal Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has invited President Obama, the abortion-promoting president, to participate at the Al Smith Catholic Charities dinner on Oct. 18. The invitation has been accepted. This invitation to a Catholic sponsored event, coming just days before the national election, is an abomination and another cause for scandal in the Catholic Church. It is open approval for any Catholic, so inclined, to vote for Obama and his abortion program. Church tradition is clear that Bishops/Cardinals are the authentic teachers of the faith. This action by Cardinal Dolan is an insult to each and every pro-lifer who has worked to protest abortion at any level. Catholics, let your voices be heard. Mabel Ryan Ocala No incumbents One way to fix many of the problems facing America today is to simply remove everyone presently holding office in Congress and put them in the unemployment lines. We cannot re-elect anyone now holding office for the terrible job they have done for us and for our country. Yes I agree that by doing this we will lose a few good representatives of the people but we must get rid of the majority of those who only think of themselves their bank accounts and the hell with the rest of the country. I will not support either party at this time but will forcefully oppose anyone seeking re-election to continue to be a member of a do nothing Congress. They have had opportunities to pass bills in the House and Senate that would have been a great help to provide jobs and increase revenue for our country but decided to go against our wishes for their own selfish reasons. I say no to the incumbents and yes to their opponents, how about you.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I am not sure who invented summer vacation but I think they deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Every year is worth the intense strain when there is a summer vacation to look forward to. Ah, summer vacation. The freedom of not having anything to do. No schedule in my face. No appointments frustrating me. Just an agenda of fun and more fun and dont forget the eating. Both the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I got up early to begin the drive to the airport to take us to our vacation location. I was so full of energy I could not sit still. It was then that I broke into singing, comfortably off key, a Carpenters song much to the agitation of my wife. Weve only just begun, White lace and promises, A kiss for luck and were on our way. All my wife could do was stare at me. Finally, she said, You sure are excited. Ive never seen you so excited. Are you sure youre all right? I could not have been more all righter. All I could think of was a week before me surrounded by grandchildren I have not seen for over a year. How old is ? I went through all the grandchildren. It is easy to forget how old kids are because every year their age changes. When you get to be my age, it is hard to keep up with all of these changes. A week of stuffing them with all the candy I could carry. Taking them out to a restaurant and showing A midsummers day nightmare them the proper use of the drinking straw and the fine art of a spitball battle. After all, it is a grandfathers solemn duty to teach his grandchildren the fine art of shenaniganism. Where else are they going to learn it? Their grandmother? I dont think so. We finally arrived at the airport, parked our car, and proceeded to the check-in counter. I am not sure my feet touched the ground, so excited was I to get on our way. Slow down, my wife pleaded. I cant keep up with you. We finally arrived at the check-in counter with our baggage and one of the attendants asked me a simple question. I hate it when people ask me a question when I am in one of my silly moods. Believe me; I was in one of my silliest silly moods at this time. Sir, the attendant asked me very seriously, do you have anything perishable or flammable in your luggage? With silliness smeared all over my mug I said, I sure do. I got a Bible in there and it is Dyn-OMite. And, I had the audacity to smile very broadly. Then it happened. Someone said, Did he say dynamite? Wheres the dynamite? The attendant said, He said the dynamite was in his briefcase. Suddenly, lights went on, buzzers began ringing, men in uniforms surrounded me, and two grabbed and subdued me. In a few moments, the hazmat men arrived asking where the dynamite was. The man in charge pointed to my briefcase and said, Its in the briefcase. They begin moving people away while the hazmat men came in to remove the briefcase with the alleged dynamite. At this time, I was absolutely stunned. Every ounce of silliness had drained from my person and I knew I was about to go to jail. Finally, the senior security guard came and looked at me. Where did you say the dynamite was, sir? I stammered and stuttered but finally I said, I said my Bible was dynamite. He stared at me. Look me up and down, glared at me with eyes that burned into my very soul. Then he spoke. Would you by any chance be a minister? He said rather gruffly. Yes sir, I stammered as if my life depended upon what I was going to say, I am a minister, a preacher of the gospel. I thought the last part might do something for me. At least it was a shot, excuse me, a try. He glared at me and shouted, False alarm. Just another crazy preacher. As he walked away, I could hear him muttering under his breath, Where do all these crazy preachers come from? The terminal finally quieted down, I went through the inspection, and I must say, I am not complaining mind you, but the pat down was a little longer and rougher than I remembered it being in the past. They stripped me down almost to my birthday suit. Thank God for wrinkles. As I walked down the aisle on the plane, I could hear people whispering, Thats him. Thats the crazy preacher with the dynamite. I finally sat down next to my wife who was staring O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE26 RELIGION John M.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in 12 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T hey came, they saw, they conquered. I hugged, told stories and helped out. When the grandkids come to visit, everything else stops, the regular routine hits the dust and the kids take over the house. We love having the grandkids visit. Giovanni (Gio) is going on 7, Francesca (Cesca) is 2 going on 12 and Baby Renzo, is 8 months old We see them far too infrequently so when they come every minute counts. From the moment they arrive at the airport to their departure, their time with us is filled with activity. At this visit, we went to Downtown Disney, the Natural History Museum in Gainesville, and the outlet stores in Orlando. We also had a visit from Uncle Darren, who came laden with gifts from Disney. He did uncle-style rough housing which brought giggles to Gio and Cesca. (Renzo slept through it all!) Overall, we were kept pretty busy with our trips up and down the turnpike or along 1-75. Having grandkids gives you some wonderful insights. Playing with them and coping with Baby Renzos needs, made me think back to the time when their mom and uncle were their age. How different the world was 37 and 31 years ago! Why even the diapers have changed! (The disposables were fitted differently back then) Even though the situation brought me back to earlier times, I did not call Gio by his uncles name even once, though I did call the baby Gio a few times! Still it never hurts to feel young again! The Psalmist wrote: Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings and yes, kids say the truth in many ways. When I commented to Cesca that she was so smart she would probably pass all the FCATs, she just looked at me and said: But I like bunnies! If only as adults we could speak our minds truthfully. Connecting with family is so important with grand parenting. Children should learn about their namesakes and those that came before them. With this in mind, I pulled out an old photo album. I told Gio and Cesca that if they could tell me who the baby was in the picture, they could have a toy. Cesca piped up: Baby Renzo and Gio echoed the thought. Turns out it was a picture of their mother! Cesca got very excited and for the rest of the trip she kept telling us that mommie was a baby! Ensuing photos of their namesakes (not sure they understood this) and various pictures of grandma and grandpa brought smiles. And they knew Uncle Darren was coming from a stand-alone shot. (When Darren did visit, Cesca kept telling him that he looked like the photo!) We all need to see the world the way a child does. Admire the fountain that spews forth water at exactly at a specific time, savor the last rays of a Florida sunset, taste something new for the first time and have a tea party with guests under ten years old. (Dont forget to serve Animal Crackers so you can get very silly!) When it was time to relax, a good story was the perfect solution. While Gio preferred his Lego toys, Cesca liked a good princess story. Snow White and Cinderella were excellent choices with Dumbo the Elephant a close third. An iconic moment occurred when Cesca sat on grandpas lap watching a video of Snow White. She just loved the handsome prince and the castle and I figure she thinks that castle is hers. We all need to dream a bit, so why not? I read somewhere that children are Gods promise to us that human life will endure. I believe that grandchildren are Gods proof that there is a future.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As eager as you are to take on that new challenge, it would be best to temper that spurt of Ram-bunctious energy until you have more facts to back up your decision to move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time for hardworking Bovines to take a break from their hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in the unconditional love and support of friends and family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to what you hear in the workplace. You could pick up some hints about possible changes. Meanwhile, a new infusion of creative energy sets in by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to be more flexible in dealing with a suddenly difficult situation, whether its on the job or in the home. Others might have some good points to offer. Listen to them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might think youre not getting the royal treatment you deserve. But be careful not to become a royal pain by complaining about it. Be patient and allow things to work out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Watch that penchant for being super-judgmental at work. It might create a bad impression with someone whose decisions could determine the course of your career. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youve been your usual busy-bee self, gathering nectar wherever you can find it. But nows a good time to kick back, relax and just enjoy smelling the roses. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That pesky personal situation seems to be improving. But change comes slowly, so be patient. Expect someone to bring more positive news by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Whoa! Ease up on that hectic pace youve been putting yourself through. Take time to recharge your energy levels before going full gallop again. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Try to be intrigued, not intimidated, by the issues youre suddenly facing, and youll be ahead of the game. Dont be afraid to demand answers to your questions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) New associates freezing you out of their inner circle? Never mind. Put a warm smile on that friendly face of yours, and youll soon thaw them all down to size. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your wise guidance helps colleagues agree to compromise and move forward. Meanwhile, there are still vital issues you need to deal with in your personal life. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being free with your emotions, but you also can exercise disciplined focus. You would make a fine artist. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. O ur Physical Fitness Instructor Dr. Deb keeps everyone hopping, moving and exercising with regularly scheduled activities in the clubhouse and in the pool. Men and women enjoy such classes as yoga; water aerobics; Tai-Chi and aerobics nearly every day of the week. Check your Cherrywood Chirp for the schedule of these events and come out and see how much fun getting in shape can be. Bowlers to meetBowlers with the Cherrywood League will meet on Monday the 27th in the clubhouse. The time is 11:30 a.m. to find out all the details of the upcoming season. This is a great chance for new people to sign up for either regular league play or to be a substitute bowler so if you have any interest in bowling, be sure to attend this meeting. Questions will be answered; costs explained and teams assigned among other important items to be discussed. If you are unable to attend, contact either your team captain or League Secretary, Fran Hall at 352-873-7632. Pool tournament is hereMonday and Tuesday, Aug. 20 and 21, the Norm Pellerin nine-ball tournament takes place in the poolroom of the Cherrywood Clubhouse. More than 20 players have signed up to take part in this great two day event that puts pool shooters from novices to experienced players against one another in friendly but serious competition. Everyone enjoys playing and watching others play as they figure the angles; accuracy and speed of each shot. There is a lot of camaraderie and laughter as well as some pretty fine pool shooting in this event. Watch your Citizen for details about the winners and losers in next weeks edition. Good luck pool shooters. Veterans meetings beginAfter a few short months off, the Veterans will be heading into the fall season with a very important meeting on Thursday Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. They will gather in the clubhouse to hear a guest speaker and to discuss some upcoming events. Bill Mahar and the Board strongly urge all members of the club to attend this important meeting in which vet benefits; fund-raising; a food drive for Ritz House; and other equally significant items will be dealt with. We are proud of all our veterans, especially those who continue to serve their country; community; and their fellow veterans. If you are new to our community and have served honorably in any of the Armed Forces, you are more than welcome to come and join this fine group. Correction to AARP Driving Class In last weeks Citizen, I reported that the Senior Driving Class would be in September. That was incorrect. The two classes will be held Nov. 12 and 15 for Class 1 and Nov. 26 and 29 for the second class. What wasnt incorrect is the fact that it is free to veterans and there are fewer than 20 slots available per class. If you are a veteran, you should contact Geri as soon as possible and reserve your seat. Of course these are open classes so if you are a member of AARP the cost is just $12 and non-members are only $14 per student. Upon completion of the class, you will receive a certificate that will entitle you to discounts on your auto insurance so this is a great investment of your time for many reasons. Your safety is important to us so sign up right away. I apologize for the error in last weeks Citizen. Accordion Club fires up Our Accordion Club will again be tuning up and playing familiar and new songs in the clubhouse on Wednesday, Aug. 22. Bring your own refreshments and come listen to this mixture of professional and amateur musicians entertain. The party starts at 5:30 and lasts until around 9. Youll hear instruments from drums to accordions; horns to guitars; and some of our local talent singing to please everyone. Ask anyone who has been to one of these fun evenings if you dont believe me. Grab a bottle of your favorite beverage; a bag of snacks and a few friends then be there for a night of free musical entertainment. Singers still wantedEvery Wednesday at 2 p.m., our Cherrywood Songbirds gather in the clubhouse to learn and practice music to take to various venues. Whether its in a nursing home facility or a concert setting or anything in between, their beautiful voices and cheerful lyrics brighten the day of all who hear them. These dedicated individuals are a source of pride to Cherrywood and we strongly encourage anyone of our residents who enjoys singing to join these talented people. Men, you are especially urged to take part and lend your voices to the chorus. All you have to do is show up on Wednesday at 2 p.m. and try out. Fitness instructor keeps everyone moving and exercising Water aerobics at Cherrywood.

This years Craft Fair is shaping up to be the best ever for several reasons. The first is that there are few if any other craft shows going on at that time.

Its only $10 per table for our residents In conjunction with this great Craft Show, the Veterans Club is holding a food drive for Ritz House for Veterans. A drop off area will be provided for you to bring donations of non-perishable food stuffs and cleaning supplies for this worthwhile cause.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week I feature a resident of Cherrywood with an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a contribution to the quality of life here in our community. This week CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Avis Millett is this weeks Spotlight on Excellence. I interview Avis Millet. As a background, earlier this year I was going to do an article on both Avis and her husband Paul. Unfortunately, the interview never took place because Paul was in too much pain. Little did he or anyone else know that he was dying and in June, Paul passed away. Paul was a member of what Tom Brokaw called, The Greatest Generation. In early childhood, he lived through the depression on a farm in Maine. The work was hard and the weather cold but he and his siblings did what they had to do and still managed to attend school. At the age of 14, an epidemic of Polio ravaged the area. Both Paul and his brother contracted the disease along with several others in their home town. It cost Paul a year of schooling while he left his home and went to live with Aunt Eva. She lived near the hospital that he needed so desperately in those days. After a year of immense pain and suffering, Paul gradually began to regain his strength and learned how to walk again. One day he made his way from the confines of the house and was standing outside when his aunt pulled up in the family car. Paul, what are you doing? she yelled at him. Joyfully he answered, Im walking! He was able to return to school that year. Because he was behind in his grade, a little girl had caught up to him and was in his class. Her name was Avis Richards. In 1943 the two graduated together, paired up by fate as they took their diplomas. That year was a rough one for the United States. Paul received his draft notice shortly after graduation and in spite of his medical history, Uncle Sam wanted him. He became part of the 168th Combat Engineer Battalion of the US Army. He related in documents that while the training was difficult, he wanted it so bad that he made it through. Later that same year, he was shipped out to Europe. In July of 1944, Paul landed on Omaha Beach and began the long trek toward Germany. In December of he was up on the front lines in Belgium bringing blankets and coffee to the troops when he found himself right in the middle of a German offensive. It would come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge. Separated from his unit, Paul and five other men made their way toward the American lines. Running by night and hiding by day, the small group traveled over 55 miles in less than a week and found themselves in Bastogne. Later, he would take part in the battle of the Rhineland where he and his outfit would put up bridges during the dark of night only to watch them being blown up during the day. When it was all over, Paul had achieved the rank of technical sergeant; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 earned five battle stars, the Soldiers Medal and numerous other decorations. After graduation from high school, Avis and Paul lost track of each other. Avis married and so did Paul. Paul took work with AT&T and Avis went on to Gates Business College where she received her Certificate in Business. At a high school reunion, shortly before the death of Pauls first wife and two years after Avis husband had passed, the two became reacquainted. Paul had been suffering from Post Polio Syndrome which confined him to a wheel chair. After his wife died, it appeared that he would be going to an assisted living facility. Avis called one day, just to see how he was doing. When it appeared he was in need, she agreed to come and help him out with shopping and cooking and the little things that he could care for around the house. Winthrop Maine was a small town and one day Paul received a call from another high school friend. She asked how long Avis would be helping him out and his answer, Forever. The two were married and decided that Maine was too cold and too dangerous with the ice and snow for them. They moved to Florida and rented a place at Palm Cay. One day their real estate agent called and said that there was a wheel chair friendly house in Cherrywood for sale. Needless to say, Paul and Avis moved in. That was just a little more than five years ago. As is often the case with later in life relationships, both Avis and Paul lamented that they had not gotten together earlier. Their deep affection for one another allowed them five years of joy and happiness. They had high hopes for at least another five years together but unfortunately, that was not to be. In June, Paul passed away. Both Paul and Avis are members of the Southwest Christian Church and Paul was a popular singer in the church. Avis spends her days now listening to his CDs and the warm voice singing hymns. She describes him as always cheerful and laughing even though he was in constant pain. Tears fill her eyes as she holds his photograph and talks about the memories they shared. Paul was a 32nd degree Mason; a member of the 000CBV3 Two Divas in One Store 20324 E.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As eager as you are to take on that new challenge, it would be best to temper that spurt of Ram-bunctious energy until you have more facts to back up your decision to move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time for hardworking Bovines to take a break from their hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in the unconditional love and support of friends and family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to what you hear in the workplace. You could pick up some hints about possible changes. Meanwhile, a new infusion of creative energy sets in by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to be more flexible in dealing with a suddenly difficult situation, whether its on the job or in the home. Others might have some good points to offer. Listen to them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might think youre not getting the royal treatment you deserve. But be careful not to become a royal pain by complaining about it. Be patient and allow things to work out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Watch that penchant for being super-judgmental at work. It might create a bad impression with someone whose decisions could determine the course of your career. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youve been your usual busy-bee self, gathering nectar wherever you can find it. But nows a good time to kick back, relax and just enjoy smelling the roses. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That pesky personal situation seems to be improving. But change comes slowly, so be patient. Expect someone to bring more positive news by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Whoa! Ease up on that hectic pace youve been putting yourself through. Take time to recharge your energy levels before going full gallop again. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Try to be intrigued, not intimidated, by the issues youre suddenly facing, and youll be ahead of the game. Dont be afraid to demand answers to your questions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) New associates freezing you out of their inner circle? Never mind. Put a warm smile on that friendly face of yours, and youll soon thaw them all down to size. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your wise guidance helps colleagues agree to compromise and move forward. Meanwhile, there are still vital issues you need to deal with in your personal life. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being free with your emotions, but you also can exercise disciplined focus. You would make a fine artist. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. O ur Physical Fitness Instructor Dr. Deb keeps everyone hopping, moving and exercising with regularly scheduled activities in the clubhouse and in the pool. Men and women enjoy such classes as yoga; water aerobics; Tai-Chi and aerobics nearly every day of the week. Check your Cherrywood Chirp for the schedule of these events and come out and see how much fun getting in shape can be. Bowlers to meetBowlers with the Cherrywood League will meet on Monday the 27th in the clubhouse. The time is 11:30 a.m. to find out all the details of the upcoming season. This is a great chance for new people to sign up for either regular league play or to be a substitute bowler so if you have any interest in bowling, be sure to attend this meeting. Questions will be answered; costs explained and teams assigned among other important items to be discussed. If you are unable to attend, contact either your team captain or League Secretary, Fran Hall at 352-873-7632. Pool tournament is hereMonday and Tuesday, Aug. 20 and 21, the Norm Pellerin nine-ball tournament takes place in the poolroom of the Cherrywood Clubhouse. More than 20 players have signed up to take part in this great two day event that puts pool shooters from novices to experienced players against one another in friendly but serious competition. Everyone enjoys playing and watching others play as they figure the angles; accuracy and speed of each shot. There is a lot of camaraderie and laughter as well as some pretty fine pool shooting in this event. Watch your Citizen for details about the winners and losers in next weeks edition. Good luck pool shooters. Veterans meetings beginAfter a few short months off, the Veterans will be heading into the fall season with a very important meeting on Thursday Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. They will gather in the clubhouse to hear a guest speaker and to discuss some upcoming events. Bill Mahar and the Board strongly urge all members of the club to attend this important meeting in which vet benefits; fund-raising; a food drive for Ritz House; and other equally significant items will be dealt with. We are proud of all our veterans, especially those who continue to serve their country; community; and their fellow veterans. If you are new to our community and have served honorably in any of the Armed Forces, you are more than welcome to come and join this fine group. Correction to AARP Driving Class In last weeks Citizen, I reported that the Senior Driving Class would be in September. That was incorrect. The two classes will be held Nov. 12 and 15 for Class 1 and Nov. 26 and 29 for the second class. What wasnt incorrect is the fact that it is free to veterans and there are fewer than 20 slots available per class. If you are a veteran, you should contact Geri as soon as possible and reserve your seat. Of course these are open classes so if you are a member of AARP the cost is just $12 and non-members are only $14 per student. Upon completion of the class, you will receive a certificate that will entitle you to discounts on your auto insurance so this is a great investment of your time for many reasons. Your safety is important to us so sign up right away. I apologize for the error in last weeks Citizen. Accordion Club fires up Our Accordion Club will again be tuning up and playing familiar and new songs in the clubhouse on Wednesday, Aug. 22. Bring your own refreshments and come listen to this mixture of professional and amateur musicians entertain. The party starts at 5:30 and lasts until around 9. Youll hear instruments from drums to accordions; horns to guitars; and some of our local talent singing to please everyone. Ask anyone who has been to one of these fun evenings if you dont believe me. Grab a bottle of your favorite beverage; a bag of snacks and a few friends then be there for a night of free musical entertainment. Singers still wantedEvery Wednesday at 2 p.m., our Cherrywood Songbirds gather in the clubhouse to learn and practice music to take to various venues. Whether its in a nursing home facility or a concert setting or anything in between, their beautiful voices and cheerful lyrics brighten the day of all who hear them. These dedicated individuals are a source of pride to Cherrywood and we strongly encourage anyone of our residents who enjoys singing to join these talented people. Men, you are especially urged to take part and lend your voices to the chorus. All you have to do is show up on Wednesday at 2 p.m. and try out. Fitness instructor keeps everyone moving and exercising Water aerobics at Cherrywood.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in 12 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T hey came, they saw, they conquered. I hugged, told stories and helped out. When the grandkids come to visit, everything else stops, the regular routine hits the dust and the kids take over the house. We love having the grandkids visit. Giovanni (Gio) is going on 7, Francesca (Cesca) is 2 going on 12 and Baby Renzo, is 8 months old We see them far too infrequently so when they come every minute counts. From the moment they arrive at the airport to their departure, their time with us is filled with activity. At this visit, we went to Downtown Disney, the Natural History Museum in Gainesville, and the outlet stores in Orlando. We also had a visit from Uncle Darren, who came laden with gifts from Disney. He did uncle-style rough housing which brought giggles to Gio and Cesca. (Renzo slept through it all!) Overall, we were kept pretty busy with our trips up and down the turnpike or along 1-75. Having grandkids gives you some wonderful insights. Playing with them and coping with Baby Renzos needs, made me think back to the time when their mom and uncle were their age. How different the world was 37 and 31 years ago! Why even the diapers have changed! (The disposables were fitted differently back then) Even though the situation brought me back to earlier times, I did not call Gio by his uncles name even once, though I did call the baby Gio a few times! Still it never hurts to feel young again! The Psalmist wrote: Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings and yes, kids say the truth in many ways. When I commented to Cesca that she was so smart she would probably pass all the FCATs, she just looked at me and said: But I like bunnies! If only as adults we could speak our minds truthfully. Connecting with family is so important with grand parenting. Children should learn about their namesakes and those that came before them. With this in mind, I pulled out an old photo album. I told Gio and Cesca that if they could tell me who the baby was in the picture, they could have a toy. Cesca piped up: Baby Renzo and Gio echoed the thought. Turns out it was a picture of their mother! Cesca got very excited and for the rest of the trip she kept telling us that mommie was a baby! Ensuing photos of their namesakes (not sure they understood this) and various pictures of grandma and grandpa brought smiles. And they knew Uncle Darren was coming from a stand-alone shot. (When Darren did visit, Cesca kept telling him that he looked like the photo!) We all need to see the world the way a child does. Admire the fountain that spews forth water at exactly at a specific time, savor the last rays of a Florida sunset, taste something new for the first time and have a tea party with guests under ten years old. (Dont forget to serve Animal Crackers so you can get very silly!) When it was time to relax, a good story was the perfect solution. While Gio preferred his Lego toys, Cesca liked a good princess story. Snow White and Cinderella were excellent choices with Dumbo the Elephant a close third. An iconic moment occurred when Cesca sat on grandpas lap watching a video of Snow White. She just loved the handsome prince and the castle and I figure she thinks that castle is hers. We all need to dream a bit, so why not? I read somewhere that children are Gods promise to us that human life will endure. I believe that grandchildren are Gods proof that there is a future.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I am not sure who invented summer vacation but I think they deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Every year is worth the intense strain when there is a summer vacation to look forward to. Ah, summer vacation. The freedom of not having anything to do. No schedule in my face. No appointments frustrating me. Just an agenda of fun and more fun and dont forget the eating. Both the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I got up early to begin the drive to the airport to take us to our vacation location. I was so full of energy I could not sit still. It was then that I broke into singing, comfortably off key, a Carpenters song much to the agitation of my wife. Weve only just begun, White lace and promises, A kiss for luck and were on our way. All my wife could do was stare at me. Finally, she said, You sure are excited. Ive never seen you so excited. Are you sure youre all right? I could not have been more all righter. All I could think of was a week before me surrounded by grandchildren I have not seen for over a year. How old is ? I went through all the grandchildren. It is easy to forget how old kids are because every year their age changes. When you get to be my age, it is hard to keep up with all of these changes. A week of stuffing them with all the candy I could carry. Taking them out to a restaurant and showing A midsummers day nightmare them the proper use of the drinking straw and the fine art of a spitball battle. After all, it is a grandfathers solemn duty to teach his grandchildren the fine art of shenaniganism. Where else are they going to learn it? Their grandmother? I dont think so. We finally arrived at the airport, parked our car, and proceeded to the check-in counter. I am not sure my feet touched the ground, so excited was I to get on our way. Slow down, my wife pleaded. I cant keep up with you. We finally arrived at the check-in counter with our baggage and one of the attendants asked me a simple question. I hate it when people ask me a question when I am in one of my silly moods. Believe me; I was in one of my silliest silly moods at this time. Sir, the attendant asked me very seriously, do you have anything perishable or flammable in your luggage? With silliness smeared all over my mug I said, I sure do. I got a Bible in there and it is Dyn-OMite. And, I had the audacity to smile very broadly. Then it happened. Someone said, Did he say dynamite? Wheres the dynamite? The attendant said, He said the dynamite was in his briefcase. Suddenly, lights went on, buzzers began ringing, men in uniforms surrounded me, and two grabbed and subdued me. In a few moments, the hazmat men arrived asking where the dynamite was. The man in charge pointed to my briefcase and said, Its in the briefcase. They begin moving people away while the hazmat men came in to remove the briefcase with the alleged dynamite. At this time, I was absolutely stunned. Every ounce of silliness had drained from my person and I knew I was about to go to jail. Finally, the senior security guard came and looked at me. Where did you say the dynamite was, sir? I stammered and stuttered but finally I said, I said my Bible was dynamite. He stared at me. Look me up and down, glared at me with eyes that burned into my very soul. Then he spoke. Would you by any chance be a minister? He said rather gruffly. Yes sir, I stammered as if my life depended upon what I was going to say, I am a minister, a preacher of the gospel. I thought the last part might do something for me. At least it was a shot, excuse me, a try. He glared at me and shouted, False alarm. Just another crazy preacher. As he walked away, I could hear him muttering under his breath, Where do all these crazy preachers come from? The terminal finally quieted down, I went through the inspection, and I must say, I am not complaining mind you, but the pat down was a little longer and rougher than I remembered it being in the past. They stripped me down almost to my birthday suit. Thank God for wrinkles. As I walked down the aisle on the plane, I could hear people whispering, Thats him. Thats the crazy preacher with the dynamite. I finally sat down next to my wife who was staring O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE26 RELIGION John M.

Today they are known as the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. The Kiowa name was pronounced (kaiewe), with a silent a, a long i and a short e.at the end). Those of us who took diction for voice in college, the last e is inverted to give the uh sound. The Kiowa call themselves Kaigwn, meaning Principal People. There are 12,000 still living in Oklahoma and speak English and Kiowa, plus are of the Christian faith, native American Church and traditional tribal religion. Over the years the Kiowa called themselves by other names but that is not germane here. This article is only to straighten out the misrepresentation of the Great Kiowa People by those who know no better. Golfers in particular show know this. Bill Ford Ocala Catholic invitation to President ObamaCardinal Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has invited President Obama, the abortion-promoting president, to participate at the Al Smith Catholic Charities dinner on Oct. 18. The invitation has been accepted. This invitation to a Catholic sponsored event, coming just days before the national election, is an abomination and another cause for scandal in the Catholic Church. It is open approval for any Catholic, so inclined, to vote for Obama and his abortion program. Church tradition is clear that Bishops/Cardinals are the authentic teachers of the faith. This action by Cardinal Dolan is an insult to each and every pro-lifer who has worked to protest abortion at any level. Catholics, let your voices be heard. Mabel Ryan Ocala No incumbents One way to fix many of the problems facing America today is to simply remove everyone presently holding office in Congress and put them in the unemployment lines. We cannot re-elect anyone now holding office for the terrible job they have done for us and for our country. Yes I agree that by doing this we will lose a few good representatives of the people but we must get rid of the majority of those who only think of themselves their bank accounts and the hell with the rest of the country. I will not support either party at this time but will forcefully oppose anyone seeking re-election to continue to be a member of a do nothing Congress. They have had opportunities to pass bills in the House and Senate that would have been a great help to provide jobs and increase revenue for our country but decided to go against our wishes for their own selfish reasons. I say no to the incumbents and yes to their opponents, how about you.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 17, 2012 A fter all these years, I still enjoy watching Little League Baseball, both in person and on the tube. This past weekend the networks of ESPN were flooded with regional semifinals and finals, the last step for teams trying to get to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, which is now about to start. There were games starting at all hours, games being moved from channel to channel to accommodate rain delays and lengthy contests, so there was a desperate need for a working remote from Thursday through Sunday. I had some time off, so I parked myself in my recliner and watched games, in between answering annoying political phone calls. I have coached youth baseball, some in the Little League program and some not, since my first team in 1962. Ive been to Williamsport once (as a spectator, not as a coach) when my cousin and I went in 1966 to watch the team from West New York, New Jersey, play for the world title. Of course, with my history of cheering for teams, they lost. We sat on the famous hill in the outfield in left field, and a sudden storm left us drenched, but we stayed all the way through. In those days, only the championship game was on TV. Now, the entire World Series is on the tube and, starting recently, all regional semifinals and finals are covered, which, even for a big fan like myself, might be a bit of overkill. ESPN has set up its own terminology, ignoring what most Little League fans say and calling its coverage of the regionals the Little League World Series. For most of us, the World Series is the week in Williamsport. This past weekend was the regionals, and I dont care what ESPN calls it, misleading some people into thinking were already in Pennsylvania. But then, television isnt always concerned with accuracy, just self-promotion. The field for the Series was set last weekend, and the first games were scheduled for yesterday (Thursday). Im rooting for ParTroy East, from Parsippany, New Jersey. I briefly lived in Parsippany, in an apartment complex called Troy Hills Village (hence Par-Troy), but for the life of me I cant remember where the Little League field was (hey, give me a break, it was 1966). With my track record, you can pretty much count on New Jersey to finish second, but at least it reached the World Series. That a lot more than what I can say about my Major League team, the New York Mets. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T hey are the words that many youngsters dread and many parents await with cheers school begins next Monday, Aug. 20. Thousands of Marion County public school students will head for class that day, meaning more rush hour traffic, more young people walking along the road, and many, many more school buses out on the highways and byways of the county. That means its time for drivers around the county to watch out for the children and the buses. Its also important for drivers to know the rules of the road when it comes to stopping for the big yellow buses with the flashing red lights. With many of our residents coming from other states, where the laws might be different, education is important. So here is a summary of some of the rules for stopping for a school bus. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. In some areas, they are starting to install cameras on buses that would photograph any vehicle that passes illegally. With certain restrictions, we would be in favor of that, much moreso than red light cameras. So when you take to the road next Monday, take your time and keep it safe, both for yourselves and the young people who are headed to class. Of course, you wouldnt have to worry about school buses if all parents took the responsibility of getting their own children to school but thats another story for another day. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Watch out for the children Little League takes center stage LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen President Obama thinks he can score points on Mitt Romney by pointing out that companies acquired by Bain Capital outsourced jobs to other countries. The implication is that there is something unpatriotic in contracting for foreign labor. That is a strange position in this era of globalization, which Obama claims to favor. Romney, a self-described champion of free enterprise, defended outsourcing, right? Well, no. Instead, he said first that he wasnt running Bain at the time, and second that Obamas administration has subsidized firms that outsource labor. Some defender of free enterprise Romney turned out to be. We must look at outsourcing at two levels: as an abstract concept and as it occurs in our mixed, or corporatist, economy (we do not have a free market). The two analyses will differ. In terms of economic theory, outsourcing is simply a manifestation of the division of labor. Hardly anyone thinks the division of labor is a bad idea. Selfsufficiency is a road to poverty. Imagine what life would be like if you could have only what you and your family could produce. People once lived like that, and Im sure almost no one would want to return to those days. The division of labor is what makes specialization and rising productivity possible. We can all have a wider array of affordable consumer goods thanks to specialization and the division of labor. Because of whats known in economics as comparative advantage, we would be better off even if specialization did not lead to improved skill at our various tasks. The principle of comparative advantage points out that when people are left free, they will tend to concentrate on the work for which they have the lowest opportunity cost, leaving other work for others. Think about a high-priced lawyer who is also the fastest, most accurate typist in the world. Would this lawyer do his own typing or hire another typist to do it? To see why he would hire a typist, notice that every hour the lawyer spent typing would cost him, say, $500 in forgone attorney fees. This would not be true of any typist he hired. Its similar for groups of people around the world. In a global economy, various kinds of work will be appropriately done in different locations. Should all work be done in the United States? If self-sufficiency and buying local are bad ways to raise living standards, buying American makes no more sense. Since the division of labor is good, the more elaborate it is, the better. As Adam Smith wrote, The division of labor is limited by the extent of the market. That the extent of the market is essentially global today is in principle a good thing. Rising living standards are not the only benefit. Trade is cooperation. Global trade is global cooperation. People engaged in mutually beneficial exchanges are less likely to be attracted to war. Its bad business to kill off your customers or suppliers. One wonders why activists for world peace and against poverty are not also vocal advocates of expanded world trade. Peace through trade was a popular cause in 19th-century Britain, when Richard Cobden and John Bright spearheaded a workingand middle-class movement to oppose both tariffs and British imperialism. As noted above, our corporatist economy is not free, whatever Romney may think, but privilegeridden. Thus, decisions about where to locate jobs are likely influenced by manipulative tax laws as well as policies in lessdeveloped countries concerning land and intellectual-property, which may foreclose alternatives to working in factories. None of these policies, however, justifies interference with trade including the outsourcing of labor. Rather, advocates of freedom should focus on the malign policies directly, pointing out how they harm people worldwide who are not politically connected. The current high unemployment rate is also no grounds for restrictions, since it is other government policies that keep people out of work. Trade is good; government interference with trade is bad. AlREADER OPINIONS INVITED Outsourcing of labor is not the problem PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE9 Not an Indian name It disturbing to me the way the TV commentators and other media people, not only on the regular news, but the sports commentators as well, who regularly dont know of what they speak. Example: The sports commentators during the 2012 PGA championship, comment regularly, that the Kiawah Ocean golf course in South Carolina, is named after the Kiawah Indian tribe. But there never was a Kiawah Indian tribe. Those of us who were history majors or minors in college, get upset with these misrepresentations.

Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole Golf On Tuesday, Aug. 7, we played individual low net. The weather was hot but those who played did their best to stay cool. The large, beautiful trees on our golf course help us do that. The winners were: First Flight 1st Place, Lynn Houghton, 2nd Place, Carole Dygert; Second Flight 1st Place, Sylvia Zappia, 2nd Place, Noreen Salo; Third Flight 1st place tie, Joanne Morris and Ilene Simnowitz. Carole Dygert was closest to the pin. Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe game on the 10th of August was the usual three best net. Because there were an uneven number of players and also guests, some of the groups were assigned blinds for determining the final score. A blind is another player picked at random with his score being used for the foursome needing help. The winners with a 193 were Al Prachel, Sam Owens, Jan Flickinger, and Ed Simnowitz. Second with 194 were Ron Catapano, Vince Conolly, and two blinds. Third with a 195 were Emmett Dowling, Old Tom Morris, Duke Slayton, and a blind. Good to see you are once again hitting the long ball, Duke! Closest to the pin were Ron Catapano, Emmett Dowling, Don Aubrey, and Virgil Hein. Congratulations go to Al Millett for shooting a great 73, and to Ron Catapano for an excellent 75. Who says the heat and humidity cause the scores to go high?

JAMES My curiosity was piqued by the number of people reading the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey out in the open. Was the book just fun trash porn or a real modern-day romance that had drawn so many readTwisted fairy tale will leave you bored ers to it, particularly women? I was ready for anything when I ordered it for my Kindle Fire. What I wasnt prepared for was to be bored out of my skull. Within a few pages I was speed reading, convincing myself that any best seller this bad had to get better. The books general yuckiness comes not from the explicit sex but rather from the forgettable charactersa clumsy virgin and a wealthy borderline rapistand an execrable writing style. Anastasia Steele who has spent her young days reading classic English literature has learned nothing from it as she flushes crimson time and again and gushes after a sexual encounter with the handsome Christian Grey, My inner goddess is doing the dance of veils. On the other hand, had the book been better written it might be downright dangerous for the message it sends to love-starved females. That core message seems to be that happiness is possible with a controlling, possessive, cruel man who never allows his woman to act normally. And if only she could find the sad, lonely side of this dangerous male, everything would be perfect. Its a reminder of how many abused women have blamed themselves for their unhappy mates. This twisted fairy tale belongs in the same category with the movie Pretty Woman which suggests that turning a few tricks can bring you in touch with Prince Charming. Even so, the strong reactions to this disappointing book are surprising. Men grabbing the book from their girlfriends and hurling it away; hotels replacing Gideon Bibles with Fifty Shades. To each his own. As for me, I will not be reading the rest of the trilogy.

Thursday, Sept. 13 CERT training to beginA new Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training will begin Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Marion County Sheriffs Office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala.

Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism.

Once they get the hang of it, they can experiment with new ingredients and do it themselves, taking one more thing off your to-do list. Breakfast: Start the day off with pizza Breakfast Pizza, that is. This recipe layers eggs, cheese, turkey bacon, hash browns, sour cream and guacamole on your favorite pita or flatbread.

Y esterday Elvis Presleys fans gathered in Memphis to commemorate the 35th anniversary of his death. Commonly known by the single name Elvis, he remains one of Americas most popular singers. Todays Pun Alley rocks and rolls with Elvis and his many impersonators. Elvis Lives Andrews mother gave him twenty dollars to buy lunch for himself and his sister Terri at the diner down the street. On the way, they passed a man selling puppies for twenty dollars each. Unable to resist, Andrew bought one, named it Elvis, and went home. While he stayed outside playing with it, Terri went inside. Back so soon? her mother asked. Yes, said Terri. Im afraid we never made it to the diner. Why not? Because Andrew spent twenty dollars on Elvis. Elvis? Thats right, explained Terri. He ate nothin, bought a hound dog. Poor imitatorAn Elvis impersonator was loudly rehearsing late one night when there was a knock on his door. He opened it and found an enraged neighbor who asked, Do you know theres a little old lady sick upstairs? No, replied the impersonator, but if you sing a few bars, Ill try.His songs Did you hear about the new line of Elvis Presley themed steakhouses? They will be for people who love meat tender. Elvis had a song about dieting. It was Return To Slender. There was the time when Elvis went shopping in California during an earthquake and survived to sing a song about it: A Mall Shook Up. A long-lost Elvis song about a pig swept away in a flood has just been found. Its called You Aint Nothing but a Drowned Hog. The difference between Elvis and smart blondes is that Elvis has been sighted. In his salty early rock and roll days he made lots of dough and popularized The Twist. Some called him Elvis Pretzel-ey The face of Elvis appears on a Vegas nightclub marquee. Fans see it as a sign.His impersonatorsHe was so bad he couldnt find anyone to sing with, so he bought a duet yourself kit. The impersonator with the circus sang with some other performers. The ringmaster always announced, The next act will be a couple of jugglers, accompanied by a little music in a jugular vein. He sang in Key West. It was the first time he knew what key he was in. They tell me you love music. Yes, but never mind; keep on singing. He sang with one of the great bands of the day; at night they were not so good. Old Elvis impersonators never die; they just get out of sequins. He sang that song in a haunting manner. Do you think so? Yes, there was just the ghost of a resemblance to the original Elvis. The difference between most impersonators and a savings bond is that a savings bond eventually matures and makes money. That impersonator has a marvelous voice. He can hold one of his notes for half a minute. Thats nothing, I have held one of his notes for two years. The town has a big St. Patricks Day celebration, with a parade, green beer, and impersonator singing rock and roll music. Or at least, they claim its rock and roll; but its just a weak imitation. Its sham-rock. One impersonator believed it was his best job; but eventually he found he wasnt noteworthy.Seasoned musiciansI went to a great concert last week. It was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel. They had an impressive lineup an Elvis impersonator, Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66, Rosemary Clooney and 80s TV star Tyne Daly from Cagney & Lacey. The ensemble was billed as Presley, Serge, Rosemary and Tyne.Part timeStanding in line at a grocery store, Tom was pleased to hear bits of his favorite Elvis song. Unfortunately, the music would begin to play, only to quickly stop. The stores sound system did not seem to be working properly. Turning to the woman standing behind him in line. Tom said he hoped the store would get their system fixed. As the music started up again, Tom smiled and said, There it is again. Sir, it is indeed Elvis, but its not from the store, the woman replied with a smile, Your cell phone is ringing. Rocking and rolling with Elvis and his impersonators P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank More on Page 6 000C4NM TREE SERVICE A P r o C u t A P r o C u t A-Pro Cut T R E E S E R V I C E T R E E S E R V I C E T REE S ERVICE Trimming Tree Removal 3 5 2 8 0 4 4 6 6 2 3 5 2 8 0 4 4 6 6 2 352-804-4662 L ICENSED I NSURED 352-237-2796 Family Owned & Operated Since 1972 Licensed & Insured #3803 Dependable A Division of R.C.

Some of these Jews are not affiliated with a synagogue; and a sizable percentage simply dont feel comfortable in a synagogue setting. The local branch of the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, has presented its own High Holiday services option, providing free Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services in a warm and inclusive setting. Chabads services are userfriendly, making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the beginner and the advanced. Song, commentary and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books, enable those of all levels to become active participants in the services. According to Jewish tradition, on the Jewish New Year, the doors of Heaven are open. G-d accepts prayers from everyone, said Lubavitch Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who is hosting free services in Ocala. The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community. Rabbi Yossi continued, The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory, insisted that Judaism is accessible to all Jews. During the Jewish High Holidays, accessibility can translate into different factors for different people, such as a nonjudgmental atmosphere, affordability of the services, or the ability for a beginner to follow along. Our goal is to lower the barriers of entry, and encourage each and every Jew to actively participate in these most holy and introspective days. Rosh Hashanah begins this year after sundown on Sept. 16, and extends until nightfall on Sept. 18. For more info or to RSVP visit www.JewishMarion.org or email info@jewishmarion.org Rosh Hashana Eve. September 16 services will take place at the Hilton of Ocala at 7:15 p.m. Rosh Hashana Day 1, and Day 2 Sept. 17th and 18 will take place at the Chabad Jewish Center 3509 S.W. 34th Ave. Circle. Services: 10 a.m., Shofar Blowing at 11:30 a.m. Chabad offers services geared for Jews of all backgrounds Fire Captain Alan Peters with Ocala Fire Rescue has achieved 30 years of service.

Revenue is down 40 percent. We cant cut essential services, but we have to make cuts. Arnett said he ran because I looked at the candidates who were already running, and they didnt have the (business) background or experience. I felt the time had come to step up. The bottom line is I have 40 years of business experience and knowledge. He said he was a businessman, not a politician. Two other closely watched races went down to the wire, with late surges gaining victories for the candidates. In the race for Sheriff, Dan Kuhn finished with 52.88 percent, while Chris Blair came in at 47.12 percent. Kuhn faces Constitution Party member Bernie DeCastro in November, as well as a writein candidate. There are no Democrats in the race. George Tomyn won the School Superintendent primary, in a tough threeway race dominated by some negative campaigning. Tomyn scored 41.32 percent, current School Board member Jackie Porter registered 33.03 percent and Wally Wagoner finished third at 25.65 percent. Tomyn will go up against Diana Greene, a Democrat, in November. Both are administrators in the school system. Were very excited, very happy that we were able to run a professional, clean campaign and thats what youll see from me and my team in the future, an excited Tomyn said. Well present everything professionally, and I believe thats what will lead us to victory in November. Mike Graves won the multi-county decision for public defender.Jeff Bryan of the Riverland News in Dunnellon contributed to this report.

Both school issues on the ballot were defeated Tuesday, the first by 4.4 percent and the second by 17.56 percent Waiting for returns was tough for a pair of contenders who took easy victories. In a county judge race, Tommy Thompson defeated Leann MackeyBarnes, 59.33 to 40.67 percent. Thompson, who has tried criminal cases as an attorney, said it was like presenting the whole case and then waiting for the jury to come in with a decision. The other county judge race went to Robert Landt over Paul Guilfoil, 56.53 percent to 43.47 percent. Assistant Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox would normally have been in the back of the office taking part in the count, but since he was running, he could not take part in his normal work, and waited out front with the candidates and the press. After it became obvious that he would win easily, collecting 70.6 percent of the vote over Barbara Ruse, he commented, Im tired, excited, extremely happy. Those are my first emotions. Im happy with what we have done. He did add that he had an upcoming battle with Democrat Judge Cochran in November. Now in 83 days and 22 hours, we get to do it all again.

In a few minutes the plane took off and as we reached our altitude she, while still staring out the window, said to me, Next time well take separate planes. She paused for a moment and then said, In fact, will take separate airports. I think I am going to stick to what the Bible says. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12 KJV).

This donation is part of a national 3-million meal project in Tampa that will rally 20,000 people from the Bay area to hand-package rice, lentils, veggies and Himalayan sea salt into easy-to-make meals. This 25-cent per meal casserole will be used to stock the crisis food pantries in public schools to help hungry kids focus on their education and not on hunger. The event titled Project 3, will mobilize and empower the Tampa community to make a difference in the fight against hunger right here at home. FCE has currently selected the Marion County school district as one of the recipients of these nutritious and vital meals: Meals will be delivered throughout the first week of September to each school district, who will determine how the meals will be distributed to students. Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) is a nonprofit organization based in Orlando. The FCE movement was launched in 2010. FCE is a social charity that empowers and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children. Feeding Children Everywhere donating food to schools With school just around the corner, the community is invited get ready for the upcoming year at the first Back to School Safety Fair at Paddock Mall, sponsored by Sears and Coke. The event will be Saturday, Aug. 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event will offer multiple health and safety awareness exhibits, including, child identification, finger printing, backpack usage safety, bicycle and helmet safety, child seat checks, and more. Paddock Mall wants to encourage safety awareness for moms, dads, and their children. Agencies and services such as the Arnette House, The Centers, Florida Blood Centers, Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Marion County Childrens Alliance, Marion County Health Department, and local law enforcement agencies will all be on site to provide information to families. Kids will get an opportunity to meet both the OPD bicycle and K-9 units as well. They will also get an up-close look at Ocala Fire Rescue fire trucks and the ShandsCair helicopter. Kids will also enjoy several entertaining activities such as face painting, balloons, and meet Sir Gus Jr., the kissing camel. OPD is also holding their Safety Seat class. Pre-registration will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Class starts at 11 a.m. OPD will provide one seat per family. The fair is free and open to the community, but there is a $15 donation for the safety seat class. The event will be in the Belk parking lot in inside in front of Sears.

The board serves as a support group for the full-time firefighters.

Volunteer firefighters must go through training and will respond to some incidents, but do not wear air packs or enter burning buildings.

Fire Station 21 looking for volunteer board members BY JIM CLARK Editor Voters turned out for the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 14, and in the process sent one county commissioner packing. They also selected Republican candidates for sheriff and school superintendent. David Moore was the Republican primary winner for the nomination for County District 1, unseating Mike Amsden. Moore grabbed 51.14 percent to Amsdens 48.86 percent. Moore must face a write-in candidate in November. County Commissioner Stan McClain survived a tight battle with Jeff Gold. McClain had 52.26 percent to 47.74 percent for Gold. McClain also faces a writein hopeful in November. Write-in candidates are not listed on the ballot. A more competitive County Commission race will take place in November for District 5. Republican Earl Arnett tallied 36.16 percent, good enough to outpoll three other candidates, including Francine Johannesen at 27.34, Pat Gabriel at 24.68 and Butch Verrando at 11.82 percent. Arnett will go up against a Democratic challenger, Jessica Cookie Hadley, in the general election.

I felt the time had come to step up. The bottom line is I have 40 years of business experience and knowledge. He said he was a businessman, not a politician. Two other closely watched races went down to the wire, with late surges gaining victories for the candidates. In the race for Sheriff, Dan Kuhn finished with 52.88 percent, while Chris Blair came in at 47.12 percent. Kuhn faces Constitution Party member Bernie DeCastro in November, as well as a writein candidate. There are no Democrats in the race. George Tomyn won the School Superintendent primary, in a tough threeway race dominated by some negative campaigning. Tomyn scored 41.32 percent, current School Board member Jackie Porter registered 33.03 percent and Wally Wagoner finished third at 25.65 percent. Tomyn will go up against Diana Greene, a Democrat, in November. Both are administrators in the school system. Were very excited, very happy that we were able to run a professional, clean campaign and thats what youll see from me and my team in the future, an excited Tomyn said. Well present everything professionally, and I believe thats what will lead us to victory in November.

Both school issues on the ballot were defeated Tuesday, the first by 4.4 percent and the second by 17.56 percent Waiting for returns was tough for a pair of contenders who took easy victories. In a county judge race, Tommy Thompson defeated Leann MackeyBarnes, 59.33 to 40.67 percent. Thompson, who has tried criminal cases as an attorney, said it was like presenting the whole case and then waiting for the jury to come in with a decision. The other county judge race went to Robert Landt over Paul Guilfoil, 56.53 percent to 43.47 percent. Assistant Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox would normally have been in the back of the office taking part in the count, but since he was running, he could not take part in his normal work, and waited out front with the candidates and the press. After it became obvious that he would win easily, collecting 70.6 percent of the vote over Barbara Ruse, he commented, Im tired, excited, extremely happy. Those are my first emotions. Im happy with what we have done. He did add that he had an upcoming battle with Democrat Judge Cochran in November. Now in 83 days and 22 hours, we get to do it all again.

This donation is part of a national 3-million meal project in Tampa that will rally 20,000 people from the Bay area to hand-package rice, lentils, veggies and Himalayan sea salt into easy-to-make meals. This 25-cent per meal casserole will be used to stock the crisis food pantries in public schools to help hungry kids focus on their education and not on hunger. The event titled Project 3, will mobilize and empower the Tampa community to make a difference in the fight against hunger right here at home. FCE has currently selected the Marion County school district as one of the recipients of these nutritious and vital meals: Meals will be delivered throughout the first week of September to each school district, who will determine how the meals will be distributed to students. Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) is a nonprofit organization based in Orlando. The FCE movement was launched in 2010. FCE is a social charity that empowers and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children.

Some of these Jews are not affiliated with a synagogue; and a sizable percentage simply dont feel comfortable in a synagogue setting. The local branch of the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, has presented its own High Holiday services option, providing free Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services in a warm and inclusive setting. Chabads services are userfriendly, making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the beginner and the advanced. Song, commentary and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books, enable those of all levels to become active participants in the services. According to Jewish tradition, on the Jewish New Year, the doors of Heaven are open. G-d accepts prayers from everyone, said Lubavitch Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who is hosting free services in Ocala. The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community. Rabbi Yossi continued, The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory, insisted that Judaism is accessible to all Jews. During the Jewish High Holidays, accessibility can translate into different factors for different people, such as a nonjudgmental atmosphere, affordability of the services, or the ability for a beginner to follow along. Our goal is to lower the barriers of entry, and encourage each and every Jew to actively participate in these most holy and introspective days. Rosh Hashanah begins this year after sundown on Sept. 16, and extends until nightfall on Sept. 18. For more info or to RSVP visit www.JewishMarion.org or email info@jewishmarion.org Rosh Hashana Eve. September 16 services will take place at the Hilton of Ocala at 7:15 p.m. Rosh Hashana Day 1, and Day 2 Sept. 17th and 18 will take place at the Chabad Jewish Center 3509 S.W. 34th Ave. Circle. Services: 10 a.m., Shofar Blowing at 11:30 a.m. Chabad offers services geared for Jews of all backgrounds Fire Captain Alan Peters with Ocala Fire Rescue has achieved 30 years of service.

Yesterday Elvis Presleys fans gathered in Memphis to commemorate the 35th anniversary of his death. Commonly known by the single name Elvis, he remains one of Americas most popular singers. Todays Pun Alley rocks and rolls with Elvis and his many impersonators.Elvis LivesAndrews mother gave him twenty dollars to buy lunch for himself and his sister Terri at the diner down the street. On the way, they passed a man selling puppies for twenty dollars each. Unable to resist, Andrew bought one, named it Elvis, and went home. While he stayed outside playing with it, Terri went inside. Back so soon? her mother asked. Yes, said Terri. Im afraid we never made it to the diner. Why not? Because Andrew spent twenty dollars on Elvis. Elvis? Thats right, explained Terri. He ate nothin, bought a hound dog.Poor imitatorAn Elvis impersonator was loudly rehearsing late one night when there was a knock on his door. He opened it and found an enraged neighbor who asked, Do you know theres a little old lady sick upstairs? No, replied the impersonator, but if you sing a few bars, Ill try.His songsDid you hear about the new line of Elvis Presley themed steakhouses? They will be for people who love meat tender. Elvis had a song about dieting. It was Return To Slender. There was the time when Elvis went shopping in California during an earthquake and survived to sing a song about it: A Mall Shook Up. A long-lost Elvis song about a pig swept away in a flood has just been found. Its called You Aint Nothing but a Drowned Hog. The difference between Elvis and smart blondes is that Elvis has been sighted. In his salty early rock and roll days he made lots of dough and popularized The Twist. Some called him Elvis Pretzel-ey The face of Elvis appears on a Vegas nightclub marquee. Fans see it as a sign.His impersonatorsHe was so bad he couldnt find anyone to sing with, so he bought a duet yourself kit. The impersonator with the circus sang with some other performers. The ringmaster always announced, The next act will be a couple of jugglers, accompanied by a little music in a jugular vein. He sang in Key West. It was the first time he knew what key he was in. They tell me you love music. Yes, but never mind; keep on singing. He sang with one of the great bands of the day; at night they were not so good. Old Elvis impersonators never die; they just get out of sequins. He sang that song in a haunting manner. Do you think so? Yes, there was just the ghost of a resemblance to the original Elvis. The difference between most impersonators and a savings bond is that a savings bond eventually matures and makes money. That impersonator has a marvelous voice. He can hold one of his notes for half a minute. Thats nothing, I have held one of his notes for two years. The town has a big St. Patricks Day celebration, with a parade, green beer, and impersonator singing rock and roll music. Or at least, they claim its rock and roll; but its just a weak imitation. Its sham-rock. One impersonator believed it was his best job; but eventually he found he wasnt noteworthy.Seasoned musiciansI went to a great concert last week. It was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel. They had an impressive lineup an Elvis impersonator, Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66, Rosemary Clooney and 80s TV star Tyne Daly from Cagney & Lacey. The ensemble was billed as Presley, Serge, Rosemary and Tyne.Part timeStanding in line at a grocery store, Tom was pleased to hear bits of his favorite Elvis song. Unfortunately, the music would begin to play, only to quickly stop. The stores sound system did not seem to be working properly. Turning to the woman standing behind him in line. Tom said he hoped the store would get their system fixed. As the music started up again, Tom smiled and said, There it is again. Sir, it is indeed Elvis, but its not from the store, the woman replied with a smile, Your cell phone is ringing.

JAMES My curiosity was piqued by the number of people reading the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey out in the open. Was the book just fun trash porn or a real modern-day romance that had drawn so many readTwisted fairy tale will leave you bored ers to it, particularly women? I was ready for anything when I ordered it for my Kindle Fire. What I wasnt prepared for was to be bored out of my skull. Within a few pages I was speed reading, convincing myself that any best seller this bad had to get better. The books general yuckiness comes not from the explicit sex but rather from the forgettable charactersa clumsy virgin and a wealthy borderline rapistand an execrable writing style. Anastasia Steele who has spent her young days reading classic English literature has learned nothing from it as she flushes crimson time and again and gushes after a sexual encounter with the handsome Christian Grey, My inner goddess is doing the dance of veils. On the other hand, had the book been better written it might be downright dangerous for the message it sends to love-starved females. That core message seems to be that happiness is possible with a controlling, possessive, cruel man who never allows his woman to act normally. And if only she could find the sad, lonely side of this dangerous male, everything would be perfect. Its a reminder of how many abused women have blamed themselves for their unhappy mates. This twisted fairy tale belongs in the same category with the movie Pretty Woman which suggests that turning a few tricks can bring you in touch with Prince Charming. Even so, the strong reactions to this disappointing book are surprising. Men grabbing the book from their girlfriends and hurling it away; hotels replacing Gideon Bibles with Fifty Shades. To each his own. As for me, I will not be reading the rest of the trilogy.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 17, 2012 After all these years, I still enjoy watching Little League Baseball, both in person and on the tube. This past weekend the networks of ESPN were flooded with regional semifinals and finals, the last step for teams trying to get to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, which is now about to start. There were games starting at all hours, games being moved from channel to channel to accommodate rain delays and lengthy contests, so there was a desperate need for a working remote from Thursday through Sunday. I had some time off, so I parked myself in my recliner and watched games, in between answering annoying political phone calls. I have coached youth baseball, some in the Little League program and some not, since my first team in 1962. Ive been to Williamsport once (as a spectator, not as a coach) when my cousin and I went in 1966 to watch the team from West New York, New Jersey, play for the world title. Of course, with my history of cheering for teams, they lost. We sat on the famous hill in the outfield in left field, and a sudden storm left us drenched, but we stayed all the way through. In those days, only the championship game was on TV. Now, the entire World Series is on the tube and, starting recently, all regional semifinals and finals are covered, which, even for a big fan like myself, might be a bit of overkill. ESPN has set up its own terminology, ignoring what most Little League fans say and calling its coverage of the regionals the Little League World Series. For most of us, the World Series is the week in Williamsport. This past weekend was the regionals, and I dont care what ESPN calls it, misleading some people into thinking were already in Pennsylvania. But then, television isnt always concerned with accuracy, just self-promotion. The field for the Series was set last weekend, and the first games were scheduled for yesterday (Thursday). Im rooting for ParTroy East, from Parsippany, New Jersey. I briefly lived in Parsippany, in an apartment complex called Troy Hills Village (hence Par-Troy), but for the life of me I cant remember where the Little League field was (hey, give me a break, it was 1966). With my track record, you can pretty much count on New Jersey to finish second, but at least it reached the World Series. That a lot more than what I can say about my Major League team, the New York Mets. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

They are the words that many youngsters dread and many parents await with cheers school begins next Monday, Aug. 20. Thousands of Marion County public school students will head for class that day, meaning more rush hour traffic, more young people walking along the road, and many, many more school buses out on the highways and byways of the county. That means its time for drivers around the county to watch out for the children and the buses. Its also important for drivers to know the rules of the road when it comes to stopping for the big yellow buses with the flashing red lights. With many of our residents coming from other states, where the laws might be different, education is important. So here is a summary of some of the rules for stopping for a school bus. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. In some areas, they are starting to install cameras on buses that would photograph any vehicle that passes illegally. With certain restrictions, we would be in favor of that, much moreso than red light cameras. So when you take to the road next Monday, take your time and keep it safe, both for yourselves and the young people who are headed to class. Of course, you wouldnt have to worry about school buses if all parents took the responsibility of getting their own children to school but thats another story for another day. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Watch out for the children Little League takes center stage LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama thinks he can score points on Mitt Romney by pointing out that companies acquired by Bain Capital outsourced jobs to other countries. The implication is that there is something unpatriotic in contracting for foreign labor. That is a strange position in this era of globalization, which Obama claims to favor. Romney, a self-described champion of free enterprise, defended outsourcing, right? Well, no. Instead, he said first that he wasnt running Bain at the time, and second that Obamas administration has subsidized firms that outsource labor. Some defender of free enterprise Romney turned out to be. We must look at outsourcing at two levels: as an abstract concept and as it occurs in our mixed, or corporatist, economy (we do not have a free market). The two analyses will differ. In terms of economic theory, outsourcing is simply a manifestation of the division of labor. Hardly anyone thinks the division of labor is a bad idea. Selfsufficiency is a road to poverty. Imagine what life would be like if you could have only what you and your family could produce. People once lived like that, and Im sure almost no one would want to return to those days. The division of labor is what makes specialization and rising productivity possible. We can all have a wider array of affordable consumer goods thanks to specialization and the division of labor. Because of whats known in economics as comparative advantage, we would be better off even if specialization did not lead to improved skill at our various tasks. The principle of comparative advantage points out that when people are left free, they will tend to concentrate on the work for which they have the lowest opportunity cost, leaving other work for others. Think about a high-priced lawyer who is also the fastest, most accurate typist in the world. Would this lawyer do his own typing or hire another typist to do it? To see why he would hire a typist, notice that every hour the lawyer spent typing would cost him, say, $500 in forgone attorney fees. This would not be true of any typist he hired. Its similar for groups of people around the world. In a global economy, various kinds of work will be appropriately done in different locations. Should all work be done in the United States? If self-sufficiency and buying local are bad ways to raise living standards, buying American makes no more sense. Since the division of labor is good, the more elaborate it is, the better. As Adam Smith wrote, The division of labor is limited by the extent of the market. That the extent of the market is essentially global today is in principle a good thing. Rising living standards are not the only benefit. Trade is cooperation. Global trade is global cooperation. People engaged in mutually beneficial exchanges are less likely to be attracted to war. Its bad business to kill off your customers or suppliers. One wonders why activists for world peace and against poverty are not also vocal advocates of expanded world trade. Peace through trade was a popular cause in 19th-century Britain, when Richard Cobden and John Bright spearheaded a workingand middle-class movement to oppose both tariffs and British imperialism. As noted above, our corporatist economy is not free, whatever Romney may think, but privilegeridden. Thus, decisions about where to locate jobs are likely influenced by manipulative tax laws as well as policies in lessdeveloped countries concerning land and intellectual-property, which may foreclose alternatives to working in factories. None of these policies, however, justifies interference with trade including the outsourcing of labor. Rather, advocates of freedom should focus on the malign policies directly, pointing out how they harm people worldwide who are not politically connected. The current high unemployment rate is also no grounds for restrictions, since it is other government policies that keep people out of work. Trade is good; government interference with trade is bad. AlREADER OPINIONS INVITED Outsourcing of labor is not the problem PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE9 Not an Indian nameIt disturbing to me the way the TV commentators and other media people, not only on the regular news, but the sports commentators as well, who regularly dont know of what they speak. Example: The sports commentators during the 2012 PGA championship, comment regularly, that the Kiawah Ocean golf course in South Carolina, is named after the Kiawah Indian tribe. But there never was a Kiawah Indian tribe. Those of us who were history majors or minors in college, get upset with these misrepresentations.

Because there were an uneven number of players and also guests, some of the groups were assigned blinds for determining the final score. A blind is another player picked at random with his score being used for the foursome needing help. The winners with a 193 were Al Prachel, Sam Owens, Jan Flickinger, and Ed Simnowitz. Second with 194 were Ron Catapano, Vince Conolly, and two blinds. Third with a 195 were Emmett Dowling, Old Tom Morris, Duke Slayton, and a blind. Good to see you are once again hitting the long ball, Duke! Closest to the pin were Ron Catapano, Emmett Dowling, Don Aubrey, and Virgil Hein. Congratulations go to Al Millett for shooting a great 73, and to Ron Catapano for an excellent 75. Who says the heat and humidity cause the scores to go high?

Today they are known as the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. The Kiowa name was pronounced (kaiewe), with a silent a, a long i and a short e.at the end). Those of us who took diction for voice in college, the last e is inverted to give the uh sound. The Kiowa call themselves Kaigwn, meaning Principal People. There are 12,000 still living in Oklahoma and speak English and Kiowa, plus are of the Christian faith, native American Church and traditional tribal religion. Over the years the Kiowa called themselves by other names but that is not germane here. This article is only to straighten out the misrepresentation of the Great Kiowa People by those who know no better. Golfers in particular show know this. Bill Ford OcalaCatholic invitation to President ObamaCardinal Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has invited President Obama, the abortion-promoting president, to participate at the Al Smith Catholic Charities dinner on Oct. 18. The invitation has been accepted. This invitation to a Catholic sponsored event, coming just days before the national election, is an abomination and another cause for scandal in the Catholic Church. It is open approval for any Catholic, so inclined, to vote for Obama and his abortion program. Church tradition is clear that Bishops/Cardinals are the authentic teachers of the faith. This action by Cardinal Dolan is an insult to each and every pro-lifer who has worked to protest abortion at any level. Catholics, let your voices be heard. Mabel Ryan OcalaNo incumbentsOne way to fix many of the problems facing America today is to simply remove everyone presently holding office in Congress and put them in the unemployment lines. We cannot re-elect anyone now holding office for the terrible job they have done for us and for our country. Yes I agree that by doing this we will lose a few good representatives of the people but we must get rid of the majority of those who only think of themselves their bank accounts and the hell with the rest of the country. I will not support either party at this time but will forcefully oppose anyone seeking re-election to continue to be a member of a do nothing Congress. They have had opportunities to pass bills in the House and Senate that would have been a great help to provide jobs and increase revenue for our country but decided to go against our wishes for their own selfish reasons. I say no to the incumbents and yes to their opponents, how about you.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Iam not sure who invented summer vacation but I think they deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Every year is worth the intense strain when there is a summer vacation to look forward to. Ah, summer vacation. The freedom of not having anything to do. No schedule in my face. No appointments frustrating me. Just an agenda of fun and more fun and dont forget the eating. Both the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I got up early to begin the drive to the airport to take us to our vacation location. I was so full of energy I could not sit still. It was then that I broke into singing, comfortably off key, a Carpenters song much to the agitation of my wife. Weve only just begun, White lace and promises, A kiss for luck and were on our way. All my wife could do was stare at me. Finally, she said, You sure are excited. Ive never seen you so excited. Are you sure youre all right? I could not have been more all righter. All I could think of was a week before me surrounded by grandchildren I have not seen for over a year. How old is? I went through all the grandchildren. It is easy to forget how old kids are because every year their age changes. When you get to be my age, it is hard to keep up with all of these changes. A week of stuffing them with all the candy I could carry. Taking them out to a restaurant and showing A midsummers day nightmare them the proper use of the drinking straw and the fine art of a spitball battle. After all, it is a grandfathers solemn duty to teach his grandchildren the fine art of shenaniganism. Where else are they going to learn it? Their grandmother? I dont think so. We finally arrived at the airport, parked our car, and proceeded to the check-in counter. I am not sure my feet touched the ground, so excited was I to get on our way. Slow down, my wife pleaded. I cant keep up with you. We finally arrived at the check-in counter with our baggage and one of the attendants asked me a simple question. I hate it when people ask me a question when I am in one of my silly moods. Believe me; I was in one of my silliest silly moods at this time. Sir, the attendant asked me very seriously, do you have anything perishable or flammable in your luggage? With silliness smeared all over my mug I said, I sure do. I got a Bible in there and it is Dyn-OMite. And, I had the audacity to smile very broadly. Then it happened. Someone said, Did he say dynamite? Wheres the dynamite? The attendant said, He said the dynamite was in his briefcase. Suddenly, lights went on, buzzers began ringing, men in uniforms surrounded me, and two grabbed and subdued me. In a few moments, the hazmat men arrived asking where the dynamite was. The man in charge pointed to my briefcase and said, Its in the briefcase. They begin moving people away while the hazmat men came in to remove the briefcase with the alleged dynamite. At this time, I was absolutely stunned. Every ounce of silliness had drained from my person and I knew I was about to go to jail. Finally, the senior security guard came and looked at me. Where did you say the dynamite was, sir? I stammered and stuttered but finally I said, I said my Bible was dynamite. He stared at me. Look me up and down, glared at me with eyes that burned into my very soul. Then he spoke. Would you by any chance be a minister? He said rather gruffly. Yes sir, I stammered as if my life depended upon what I was going to say, I am a minister, a preacher of the gospel. I thought the last part might do something for me. At least it was a shot, excuse me, a try. He glared at me and shouted, False alarm. Just another crazy preacher. As he walked away, I could hear him muttering under his breath, Where do all these crazy preachers come from? The terminal finally quieted down, I went through the inspection, and I must say, I am not complaining mind you, but the pat down was a little longer and rougher than I remembered it being in the past. They stripped me down almost to my birthday suit. Thank God for wrinkles. As I walked down the aisle on the plane, I could hear people whispering, Thats him. Thats the crazy preacher with the dynamite. I finally sat down next to my wife who was staring OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE26 RELIGION John M.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in 12~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com They came, they saw, they conquered. I hugged, told stories and helped out. When the grandkids come to visit, everything else stops, the regular routine hits the dust and the kids take over the house. We love having the grandkids visit. Giovanni (Gio) is going on 7, Francesca (Cesca) is 2 going on 12 and Baby Renzo, is 8 months old We see them far too infrequently so when they come every minute counts. From the moment they arrive at the airport to their departure, their time with us is filled with activity. At this visit, we went to Downtown Disney, the Natural History Museum in Gainesville, and the outlet stores in Orlando. We also had a visit from Uncle Darren, who came laden with gifts from Disney. He did uncle-style rough housing which brought giggles to Gio and Cesca. (Renzo slept through it all!) Overall, we were kept pretty busy with our trips up and down the turnpike or along 1-75. Having grandkids gives you some wonderful insights. Playing with them and coping with Baby Renzos needs, made me think back to the time when their mom and uncle were their age. How different the world was 37 and 31 years ago! Why even the diapers have changed! (The disposables were fitted differently back then) Even though the situation brought me back to earlier times, I did not call Gio by his uncles name even once, though I did call the baby Gio a few times! Still it never hurts to feel young again! The Psalmist wrote: Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings and yes, kids say the truth in many ways. When I commented to Cesca that she was so smart she would probably pass all the FCATs, she just looked at me and said: But I like bunnies! If only as adults we could speak our minds truthfully. Connecting with family is so important with grand parenting. Children should learn about their namesakes and those that came before them. With this in mind, I pulled out an old photo album. I told Gio and Cesca that if they could tell me who the baby was in the picture, they could have a toy. Cesca piped up: Baby Renzo and Gio echoed the thought. Turns out it was a picture of their mother! Cesca got very excited and for the rest of the trip she kept telling us that mommie was a baby! Ensuing photos of their namesakes (not sure they understood this) and various pictures of grandma and grandpa brought smiles. And they knew Uncle Darren was coming from a stand-alone shot. (When Darren did visit, Cesca kept telling him that he looked like the photo!) We all need to see the world the way a child does. Admire the fountain that spews forth water at exactly at a specific time, savor the last rays of a Florida sunset, taste something new for the first time and have a tea party with guests under ten years old. (Dont forget to serve Animal Crackers so you can get very silly!) When it was time to relax, a good story was the perfect solution. While Gio preferred his Lego toys, Cesca liked a good princess story. Snow White and Cinderella were excellent choices with Dumbo the Elephant a close third. An iconic moment occurred when Cesca sat on grandpas lap watching a video of Snow White. She just loved the handsome prince and the castle and I figure she thinks that castle is hers. We all need to dream a bit, so why not? I read somewhere that children are Gods promise to us that human life will endure. I believe that grandchildren are Gods proof that there is a future.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As eager as you are to take on that new challenge, it would be best to temper that spurt of Ram-bunctious energy until you have more facts to back up your decision to move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time for hardworking Bovines to take a break from their hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in the unconditional love and support of friends and family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to what you hear in the workplace. You could pick up some hints about possible changes. Meanwhile, a new infusion of creative energy sets in by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to be more flexible in dealing with a suddenly difficult situation, whether its on the job or in the home. Others might have some good points to offer. Listen to them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might think youre not getting the royal treatment you deserve. But be careful not to become a royal pain by complaining about it. Be patient and allow things to work out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Watch that penchant for being super-judgmental at work. It might create a bad impression with someone whose decisions could determine the course of your career. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youve been your usual busy-bee self, gathering nectar wherever you can find it. But nows a good time to kick back, relax and just enjoy smelling the roses. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That pesky personal situation seems to be improving. But change comes slowly, so be patient. Expect someone to bring more positive news by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Whoa! Ease up on that hectic pace youve been putting yourself through. Take time to recharge your energy levels before going full gallop again. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Try to be intrigued, not intimidated, by the issues youre suddenly facing, and youll be ahead of the game. Dont be afraid to demand answers to your questions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) New associates freezing you out of their inner circle? Never mind. Put a warm smile on that friendly face of yours, and youll soon thaw them all down to size. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your wise guidance helps colleagues agree to compromise and move forward. Meanwhile, there are still vital issues you need to deal with in your personal life. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being free with your emotions, but you also can exercise disciplined focus. You would make a fine artist.(c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Our Physical Fitness Instructor Dr. Deb keeps everyone hopping, moving and exercising with regularly scheduled activities in the clubhouse and in the pool. Men and women enjoy such classes as yoga; water aerobics; Tai-Chi and aerobics nearly every day of the week. Check your Cherrywood Chirp for the schedule of these events and come out and see how much fun getting in shape can be. Bowlers to meetBowlers with the Cherrywood League will meet on Monday the 27th in the clubhouse. The time is 11:30 a.m. to find out all the details of the upcoming season. This is a great chance for new people to sign up for either regular league play or to be a substitute bowler so if you have any interest in bowling, be sure to attend this meeting. Questions will be answered; costs explained and teams assigned among other important items to be discussed. If you are unable to attend, contact either your team captain or League Secretary, Fran Hall at 352-873-7632.Pool tournament is hereMonday and Tuesday, Aug. 20 and 21, the Norm Pellerin nine-ball tournament takes place in the poolroom of the Cherrywood Clubhouse. More than 20 players have signed up to take part in this great two day event that puts pool shooters from novices to experienced players against one another in friendly but serious competition. Everyone enjoys playing and watching others play as they figure the angles; accuracy and speed of each shot. There is a lot of camaraderie and laughter as well as some pretty fine pool shooting in this event. Watch your Citizen for details about the winners and losers in next weeks edition. Good luck pool shooters. Veterans meetings beginAfter a few short months off, the Veterans will be heading into the fall season with a very important meeting on Thursday Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. They will gather in the clubhouse to hear a guest speaker and to discuss some upcoming events. Bill Mahar and the Board strongly urge all members of the club to attend this important meeting in which vet benefits; fund-raising; a food drive for Ritz House; and other equally significant items will be dealt with. We are proud of all our veterans, especially those who continue to serve their country; community; and their fellow veterans. If you are new to our community and have served honorably in any of the Armed Forces, you are more than welcome to come and join this fine group.Correction to AARP Driving ClassIn last weeks Citizen, I reported that the Senior Driving Class would be in September. That was incorrect. The two classes will be held Nov. 12 and 15 for Class 1 and Nov. 26 and 29 for the second class. What wasnt incorrect is the fact that it is free to veterans and there are fewer than 20 slots available per class. If you are a veteran, you should contact Geri as soon as possible and reserve your seat. Of course these are open classes so if you are a member of AARP the cost is just $12 and non-members are only $14 per student. Upon completion of the class, you will receive a certificate that will entitle you to discounts on your auto insurance so this is a great investment of your time for many reasons. Your safety is important to us so sign up right away. I apologize for the error in last weeks Citizen. Accordion Club fires up Our Accordion Club will again be tuning up and playing familiar and new songs in the clubhouse on Wednesday, Aug. 22. Bring your own refreshments and come listen to this mixture of professional and amateur musicians entertain. The party starts at 5:30 and lasts until around 9. Youll hear instruments from drums to accordions; horns to guitars; and some of our local talent singing to please everyone. Ask anyone who has been to one of these fun evenings if you dont believe me. Grab a bottle of your favorite beverage; a bag of snacks and a few friends then be there for a night of free musical entertainment.Singers still wantedEvery Wednesday at 2 p.m., our Cherrywood Songbirds gather in the clubhouse to learn and practice music to take to various venues. Whether its in a nursing home facility or a concert setting or anything in between, their beautiful voices and cheerful lyrics brighten the day of all who hear them. These dedicated individuals are a source of pride to Cherrywood and we strongly encourage anyone of our residents who enjoys singing to join these talented people. Men, you are especially urged to take part and lend your voices to the chorus. All you have to do is show up on Wednesday at 2 p.m. and try out. Fitness instructor keeps everyone moving and exercising Water aerobics at Cherrywood.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week I feature a resident of Cherrywood with an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a contribution to the quality of life here in our community. This week CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Avis Millett is this weeks Spotlight on Excellence. I interview Avis Millet. As a background, earlier this year I was going to do an article on both Avis and her husband Paul. Unfortunately, the interview never took place because Paul was in too much pain. Little did he or anyone else know that he was dying and in June, Paul passed away. Paul was a member of what Tom Brokaw called, The Greatest Generation. In early childhood, he lived through the depression on a farm in Maine. The work was hard and the weather cold but he and his siblings did what they had to do and still managed to attend school. At the age of 14, an epidemic of Polio ravaged the area. Both Paul and his brother contracted the disease along with several others in their home town. It cost Paul a year of schooling while he left his home and went to live with Aunt Eva. She lived near the hospital that he needed so desperately in those days. After a year of immense pain and suffering, Paul gradually began to regain his strength and learned how to walk again. One day he made his way from the confines of the house and was standing outside when his aunt pulled up in the family car. Paul, what are you doing? she yelled at him. Joyfully he answered, Im walking! He was able to return to school that year. Because he was behind in his grade, a little girl had caught up to him and was in his class. Her name was Avis Richards. In 1943 the two graduated together, paired up by fate as they took their diplomas. That year was a rough one for the United States. Paul received his draft notice shortly after graduation and in spite of his medical history, Uncle Sam wanted him. He became part of the 168th Combat Engineer Battalion of the US Army. He related in documents that while the training was difficult, he wanted it so bad that he made it through. Later that same year, he was shipped out to Europe. In July of 1944, Paul landed on Omaha Beach and began the long trek toward Germany. In December of he was up on the front lines in Belgium bringing blankets and coffee to the troops when he found himself right in the middle of a German offensive. It would come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge. Separated from his unit, Paul and five other men made their way toward the American lines. Running by night and hiding by day, the small group traveled over 55 miles in less than a week and found themselves in Bastogne. Later, he would take part in the battle of the Rhineland where he and his outfit would put up bridges during the dark of night only to watch them being blown up during the day. When it was all over, Paul had achieved the rank of technical sergeant; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 earned five battle stars, the Soldiers Medal and numerous other decorations. After graduation from high school, Avis and Paul lost track of each other. Avis married and so did Paul. Paul took work with AT&T and Avis went on to Gates Business College where she received her Certificate in Business. At a high school reunion, shortly before the death of Pauls first wife and two years after Avis husband had passed, the two became reacquainted. Paul had been suffering from Post Polio Syndrome which confined him to a wheel chair. After his wife died, it appeared that he would be going to an assisted living facility. Avis called one day, just to see how he was doing. When it appeared he was in need, she agreed to come and help him out with shopping and cooking and the little things that he could care for around the house. Winthrop Maine was a small town and one day Paul received a call from another high school friend. She asked how long Avis would be helping him out and his answer, Forever. The two were married and decided that Maine was too cold and too dangerous with the ice and snow for them. They moved to Florida and rented a place at Palm Cay. One day their real estate agent called and said that there was a wheel chair friendly house in Cherrywood for sale. Needless to say, Paul and Avis moved in. That was just a little more than five years ago. As is often the case with later in life relationships, both Avis and Paul lamented that they had not gotten together earlier. Their deep affection for one another allowed them five years of joy and happiness. They had high hopes for at least another five years together but unfortunately, that was not to be. In June, Paul passed away. Both Paul and Avis are members of the Southwest Christian Church and Paul was a popular singer in the church. Avis spends her days now listening to his CDs and the warm voice singing hymns. She describes him as always cheerful and laughing even though he was in constant pain. Tears fill her eyes as she holds his photograph and talks about the memories they shared. Paul was a 32nd degree Mason; a member of the 000CBV3 Two Divas in One Store 20324 E.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As eager as you are to take on that new challenge, it would be best to temper that spurt of Ram-bunctious energy until you have more facts to back up your decision to move. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time for hardworking Bovines to take a break from their hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in the unconditional love and support of friends and family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to what you hear in the workplace. You could pick up some hints about possible changes. Meanwhile, a new infusion of creative energy sets in by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to be more flexible in dealing with a suddenly difficult situation, whether its on the job or in the home. Others might have some good points to offer. Listen to them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might think youre not getting the royal treatment you deserve. But be careful not to become a royal pain by complaining about it. Be patient and allow things to work out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Watch that penchant for being super-judgmental at work. It might create a bad impression with someone whose decisions could determine the course of your career. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youve been your usual busy-bee self, gathering nectar wherever you can find it. But nows a good time to kick back, relax and just enjoy smelling the roses. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That pesky personal situation seems to be improving. But change comes slowly, so be patient. Expect someone to bring more positive news by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Whoa! Ease up on that hectic pace youve been putting yourself through. Take time to recharge your energy levels before going full gallop again. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Try to be intrigued, not intimidated, by the issues youre suddenly facing, and youll be ahead of the game. Dont be afraid to demand answers to your questions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) New associates freezing you out of their inner circle? Never mind. Put a warm smile on that friendly face of yours, and youll soon thaw them all down to size. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your wise guidance helps colleagues agree to compromise and move forward. Meanwhile, there are still vital issues you need to deal with in your personal life. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being free with your emotions, but you also can exercise disciplined focus. You would make a fine artist.(c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Our Physical Fitness Instructor Dr. Deb keeps everyone hopping, moving and exercising with regularly scheduled activities in the clubhouse and in the pool. Men and women enjoy such classes as yoga; water aerobics; Tai-Chi and aerobics nearly every day of the week. Check your Cherrywood Chirp for the schedule of these events and come out and see how much fun getting in shape can be. Bowlers to meetBowlers with the Cherrywood League will meet on Monday the 27th in the clubhouse. The time is 11:30 a.m. to find out all the details of the upcoming season. This is a great chance for new people to sign up for either regular league play or to be a substitute bowler so if you have any interest in bowling, be sure to attend this meeting. Questions will be answered; costs explained and teams assigned among other important items to be discussed. If you are unable to attend, contact either your team captain or League Secretary, Fran Hall at 352-873-7632.Pool tournament is hereMonday and Tuesday, Aug. 20 and 21, the Norm Pellerin nine-ball tournament takes place in the poolroom of the Cherrywood Clubhouse. More than 20 players have signed up to take part in this great two day event that puts pool shooters from novices to experienced players against one another in friendly but serious competition. Everyone enjoys playing and watching others play as they figure the angles; accuracy and speed of each shot. There is a lot of camaraderie and laughter as well as some pretty fine pool shooting in this event. Watch your Citizen for details about the winners and losers in next weeks edition. Good luck pool shooters. Veterans meetings beginAfter a few short months off, the Veterans will be heading into the fall season with a very important meeting on Thursday Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. They will gather in the clubhouse to hear a guest speaker and to discuss some upcoming events. Bill Mahar and the Board strongly urge all members of the club to attend this important meeting in which vet benefits; fund-raising; a food drive for Ritz House; and other equally significant items will be dealt with. We are proud of all our veterans, especially those who continue to serve their country; community; and their fellow veterans. If you are new to our community and have served honorably in any of the Armed Forces, you are more than welcome to come and join this fine group.Correction to AARP Driving ClassIn last weeks Citizen, I reported that the Senior Driving Class would be in September. That was incorrect. The two classes will be held Nov. 12 and 15 for Class 1 and Nov. 26 and 29 for the second class. What wasnt incorrect is the fact that it is free to veterans and there are fewer than 20 slots available per class. If you are a veteran, you should contact Geri as soon as possible and reserve your seat. Of course these are open classes so if you are a member of AARP the cost is just $12 and non-members are only $14 per student. Upon completion of the class, you will receive a certificate that will entitle you to discounts on your auto insurance so this is a great investment of your time for many reasons. Your safety is important to us so sign up right away. I apologize for the error in last weeks Citizen. Accordion Club fires up Our Accordion Club will again be tuning up and playing familiar and new songs in the clubhouse on Wednesday, Aug. 22. Bring your own refreshments and come listen to this mixture of professional and amateur musicians entertain. The party starts at 5:30 and lasts until around 9. Youll hear instruments from drums to accordions; horns to guitars; and some of our local talent singing to please everyone. Ask anyone who has been to one of these fun evenings if you dont believe me. Grab a bottle of your favorite beverage; a bag of snacks and a few friends then be there for a night of free musical entertainment.Singers still wantedEvery Wednesday at 2 p.m., our Cherrywood Songbirds gather in the clubhouse to learn and practice music to take to various venues. Whether its in a nursing home facility or a concert setting or anything in between, their beautiful voices and cheerful lyrics brighten the day of all who hear them. These dedicated individuals are a source of pride to Cherrywood and we strongly encourage anyone of our residents who enjoys singing to join these talented people. Men, you are especially urged to take part and lend your voices to the chorus. All you have to do is show up on Wednesday at 2 p.m. and try out.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in 12~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com They came, they saw, they conquered. I hugged, told stories and helped out. When the grandkids come to visit, everything else stops, the regular routine hits the dust and the kids take over the house. We love having the grandkids visit. Giovanni (Gio) is going on 7, Francesca (Cesca) is 2 going on 12 and Baby Renzo, is 8 months old We see them far too infrequently so when they come every minute counts. From the moment they arrive at the airport to their departure, their time with us is filled with activity. At this visit, we went to Downtown Disney, the Natural History Museum in Gainesville, and the outlet stores in Orlando. We also had a visit from Uncle Darren, who came laden with gifts from Disney. He did uncle-style rough housing which brought giggles to Gio and Cesca. (Renzo slept through it all!) Overall, we were kept pretty busy with our trips up and down the turnpike or along 1-75. Having grandkids gives you some wonderful insights. Playing with them and coping with Baby Renzos needs, made me think back to the time when their mom and uncle were their age. How different the world was 37 and 31 years ago! Why even the diapers have changed! (The disposables were fitted differently back then) Even though the situation brought me back to earlier times, I did not call Gio by his uncles name even once, though I did call the baby Gio a few times! Still it never hurts to feel young again! The Psalmist wrote: Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings and yes, kids say the truth in many ways. When I commented to Cesca that she was so smart she would probably pass all the FCATs, she just looked at me and said: But I like bunnies! If only as adults we could speak our minds truthfully. Connecting with family is so important with grand parenting. Children should learn about their namesakes and those that came before them. With this in mind, I pulled out an old photo album. I told Gio and Cesca that if they could tell me who the baby was in the picture, they could have a toy. Cesca piped up: Baby Renzo and Gio echoed the thought. Turns out it was a picture of their mother! Cesca got very excited and for the rest of the trip she kept telling us that mommie was a baby! Ensuing photos of their namesakes (not sure they understood this) and various pictures of grandma and grandpa brought smiles. And they knew Uncle Darren was coming from a stand-alone shot. (When Darren did visit, Cesca kept telling him that he looked like the photo!) We all need to see the world the way a child does. Admire the fountain that spews forth water at exactly at a specific time, savor the last rays of a Florida sunset, taste something new for the first time and have a tea party with guests under ten years old. (Dont forget to serve Animal Crackers so you can get very silly!) When it was time to relax, a good story was the perfect solution. While Gio preferred his Lego toys, Cesca liked a good princess story. Snow White and Cinderella were excellent choices with Dumbo the Elephant a close third. An iconic moment occurred when Cesca sat on grandpas lap watching a video of Snow White. She just loved the handsome prince and the castle and I figure she thinks that castle is hers. We all need to dream a bit, so why not? I read somewhere that children are Gods promise to us that human life will endure. I believe that grandchildren are Gods proof that there is a future. When the grandchildren come to visit, everything stops JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal West Marion Moose Lodge receives swardWest Marion Moose Lodge 2356 received the Quest Buster Award at the District 16 district meeting in Silver Springs Shores, Sunday, Aug. 12.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, August 17, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Iam not sure who invented summer vacation but I think they deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Every year is worth the intense strain when there is a summer vacation to look forward to. Ah, summer vacation. The freedom of not having anything to do. No schedule in my face. No appointments frustrating me. Just an agenda of fun and more fun and dont forget the eating. Both the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I got up early to begin the drive to the airport to take us to our vacation location. I was so full of energy I could not sit still. It was then that I broke into singing, comfortably off key, a Carpenters song much to the agitation of my wife. Weve only just begun, White lace and promises, A kiss for luck and were on our way. All my wife could do was stare at me. Finally, she said, You sure are excited. Ive never seen you so excited. Are you sure youre all right? I could not have been more all righter. All I could think of was a week before me surrounded by grandchildren I have not seen for over a year. How old is? I went through all the grandchildren. It is easy to forget how old kids are because every year their age changes. When you get to be my age, it is hard to keep up with all of these changes. A week of stuffing them with all the candy I could carry. Taking them out to a restaurant and showing A midsummers day nightmare them the proper use of the drinking straw and the fine art of a spitball battle. After all, it is a grandfathers solemn duty to teach his grandchildren the fine art of shenaniganism. Where else are they going to learn it? Their grandmother? I dont think so. We finally arrived at the airport, parked our car, and proceeded to the check-in counter. I am not sure my feet touched the ground, so excited was I to get on our way. Slow down, my wife pleaded. I cant keep up with you. We finally arrived at the check-in counter with our baggage and one of the attendants asked me a simple question. I hate it when people ask me a question when I am in one of my silly moods. Believe me; I was in one of my silliest silly moods at this time. Sir, the attendant asked me very seriously, do you have anything perishable or flammable in your luggage? With silliness smeared all over my mug I said, I sure do. I got a Bible in there and it is Dyn-OMite. And, I had the audacity to smile very broadly. Then it happened. Someone said, Did he say dynamite? Wheres the dynamite? The attendant said, He said the dynamite was in his briefcase. Suddenly, lights went on, buzzers began ringing, men in uniforms surrounded me, and two grabbed and subdued me. In a few moments, the hazmat men arrived asking where the dynamite was. The man in charge pointed to my briefcase and said, Its in the briefcase. They begin moving people away while the hazmat men came in to remove the briefcase with the alleged dynamite. At this time, I was absolutely stunned. Every ounce of silliness had drained from my person and I knew I was about to go to jail. Finally, the senior security guard came and looked at me. Where did you say the dynamite was, sir? I stammered and stuttered but finally I said, I said my Bible was dynamite. He stared at me. Look me up and down, glared at me with eyes that burned into my very soul. Then he spoke. Would you by any chance be a minister? He said rather gruffly. Yes sir, I stammered as if my life depended upon what I was going to say, I am a minister, a preacher of the gospel. I thought the last part might do something for me. At least it was a shot, excuse me, a try. He glared at me and shouted, False alarm. Just another crazy preacher. As he walked away, I could hear him muttering under his breath, Where do all these crazy preachers come from? The terminal finally quieted down, I went through the inspection, and I must say, I am not complaining mind you, but the pat down was a little longer and rougher than I remembered it being in the past. They stripped me down almost to my birthday suit. Thank God for wrinkles. As I walked down the aisle on the plane, I could hear people whispering, Thats him. Thats the crazy preacher with the dynamite. I finally sat down next to my wife who was staring OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE26 RELIGION John M.

Today they are known as the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. The Kiowa name was pronounced (kaiewe), with a silent a, a long i and a short e.at the end). Those of us who took diction for voice in college, the last e is inverted to give the uh sound. The Kiowa call themselves Kaigwn, meaning Principal People. There are 12,000 still living in Oklahoma and speak English and Kiowa, plus are of the Christian faith, native American Church and traditional tribal religion. Over the years the Kiowa called themselves by other names but that is not germane here. This article is only to straighten out the misrepresentation of the Great Kiowa People by those who know no better. Golfers in particular show know this. Bill Ford OcalaCatholic invitation to President ObamaCardinal Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has invited President Obama, the abortion-promoting president, to participate at the Al Smith Catholic Charities dinner on Oct. 18. The invitation has been accepted. This invitation to a Catholic sponsored event, coming just days before the national election, is an abomination and another cause for scandal in the Catholic Church. It is open approval for any Catholic, so inclined, to vote for Obama and his abortion program. Church tradition is clear that Bishops/Cardinals are the authentic teachers of the faith. This action by Cardinal Dolan is an insult to each and every pro-lifer who has worked to protest abortion at any level. Catholics, let your voices be heard. Mabel Ryan OcalaNo incumbentsOne way to fix many of the problems facing America today is to simply remove everyone presently holding office in Congress and put them in the unemployment lines. We cannot re-elect anyone now holding office for the terrible job they have done for us and for our country. Yes I agree that by doing this we will lose a few good representatives of the people but we must get rid of the majority of those who only think of themselves their bank accounts and the hell with the rest of the country. I will not support either party at this time but will forcefully oppose anyone seeking re-election to continue to be a member of a do nothing Congress. They have had opportunities to pass bills in the House and Senate that would have been a great help to provide jobs and increase revenue for our country but decided to go against our wishes for their own selfish reasons. I say no to the incumbents and yes to their opponents, how about you.

Friday, August 17, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 17, 2012 After all these years, I still enjoy watching Little League Baseball, both in person and on the tube. This past weekend the networks of ESPN were flooded with regional semifinals and finals, the last step for teams trying to get to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, which is now about to start. There were games starting at all hours, games being moved from channel to channel to accommodate rain delays and lengthy contests, so there was a desperate need for a working remote from Thursday through Sunday. I had some time off, so I parked myself in my recliner and watched games, in between answering annoying political phone calls. I have coached youth baseball, some in the Little League program and some not, since my first team in 1962. Ive been to Williamsport once (as a spectator, not as a coach) when my cousin and I went in 1966 to watch the team from West New York, New Jersey, play for the world title. Of course, with my history of cheering for teams, they lost. We sat on the famous hill in the outfield in left field, and a sudden storm left us drenched, but we stayed all the way through. In those days, only the championship game was on TV. Now, the entire World Series is on the tube and, starting recently, all regional semifinals and finals are covered, which, even for a big fan like myself, might be a bit of overkill. ESPN has set up its own terminology, ignoring what most Little League fans say and calling its coverage of the regionals the Little League World Series. For most of us, the World Series is the week in Williamsport. This past weekend was the regionals, and I dont care what ESPN calls it, misleading some people into thinking were already in Pennsylvania. But then, television isnt always concerned with accuracy, just self-promotion. The field for the Series was set last weekend, and the first games were scheduled for yesterday (Thursday). Im rooting for ParTroy East, from Parsippany, New Jersey. I briefly lived in Parsippany, in an apartment complex called Troy Hills Village (hence Par-Troy), but for the life of me I cant remember where the Little League field was (hey, give me a break, it was 1966). With my track record, you can pretty much count on New Jersey to finish second, but at least it reached the World Series. That a lot more than what I can say about my Major League team, the New York Mets. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

They are the words that many youngsters dread and many parents await with cheers school begins next Monday, Aug. 20. Thousands of Marion County public school students will head for class that day, meaning more rush hour traffic, more young people walking along the road, and many, many more school buses out on the highways and byways of the county. That means its time for drivers around the county to watch out for the children and the buses. Its also important for drivers to know the rules of the road when it comes to stopping for the big yellow buses with the flashing red lights. With many of our residents coming from other states, where the laws might be different, education is important. So here is a summary of some of the rules for stopping for a school bus. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. In some areas, they are starting to install cameras on buses that would photograph any vehicle that passes illegally. With certain restrictions, we would be in favor of that, much moreso than red light cameras. So when you take to the road next Monday, take your time and keep it safe, both for yourselves and the young people who are headed to class. Of course, you wouldnt have to worry about school buses if all parents took the responsibility of getting their own children to school but thats another story for another day. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Watch out for the children Little League takes center stage LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama thinks he can score points on Mitt Romney by pointing out that companies acquired by Bain Capital outsourced jobs to other countries. The implication is that there is something unpatriotic in contracting for foreign labor. That is a strange position in this era of globalization, which Obama claims to favor. Romney, a self-described champion of free enterprise, defended outsourcing, right? Well, no. Instead, he said first that he wasnt running Bain at the time, and second that Obamas administration has subsidized firms that outsource labor. Some defender of free enterprise Romney turned out to be. We must look at outsourcing at two levels: as an abstract concept and as it occurs in our mixed, or corporatist, economy (we do not have a free market). The two analyses will differ. In terms of economic theory, outsourcing is simply a manifestation of the division of labor. Hardly anyone thinks the division of labor is a bad idea. Selfsufficiency is a road to poverty. Imagine what life would be like if you could have only what you and your family could produce. People once lived like that, and Im sure almost no one would want to return to those days. The division of labor is what makes specialization and rising productivity possible. We can all have a wider array of affordable consumer goods thanks to specialization and the division of labor. Because of whats known in economics as comparative advantage, we would be better off even if specialization did not lead to improved skill at our various tasks. The principle of comparative advantage points out that when people are left free, they will tend to concentrate on the work for which they have the lowest opportunity cost, leaving other work for others. Think about a high-priced lawyer who is also the fastest, most accurate typist in the world. Would this lawyer do his own typing or hire another typist to do it? To see why he would hire a typist, notice that every hour the lawyer spent typing would cost him, say, $500 in forgone attorney fees. This would not be true of any typist he hired. Its similar for groups of people around the world. In a global economy, various kinds of work will be appropriately done in different locations. Should all work be done in the United States? If self-sufficiency and buying local are bad ways to raise living standards, buying American makes no more sense. Since the division of labor is good, the more elaborate it is, the better. As Adam Smith wrote, The division of labor is limited by the extent of the market. That the extent of the market is essentially global today is in principle a good thing. Rising living standards are not the only benefit. Trade is cooperation. Global trade is global cooperation. People engaged in mutually beneficial exchanges are less likely to be attracted to war. Its bad business to kill off your customers or suppliers. One wonders why activists for world peace and against poverty are not also vocal advocates of expanded world trade. Peace through trade was a popular cause in 19th-century Britain, when Richard Cobden and John Bright spearheaded a workingand middle-class movement to oppose both tariffs and British imperialism. As noted above, our corporatist economy is not free, whatever Romney may think, but privilegeridden. Thus, decisions about where to locate jobs are likely influenced by manipulative tax laws as well as policies in lessdeveloped countries concerning land and intellectual-property, which may foreclose alternatives to working in factories. None of these policies, however, justifies interference with trade including the outsourcing of labor. Rather, advocates of freedom should focus on the malign policies directly, pointing out how they harm people worldwide who are not politically connected. The current high unemployment rate is also no grounds for restrictions, since it is other government policies that keep people out of work. Trade is good; government interference with trade is bad. AlREADER OPINIONS INVITED Outsourcing of labor is not the problem PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE9 Not an Indian nameIt disturbing to me the way the TV commentators and other media people, not only on the regular news, but the sports commentators as well, who regularly dont know of what they speak. Example: The sports commentators during the 2012 PGA championship, comment regularly, that the Kiawah Ocean golf course in South Carolina, is named after the Kiawah Indian tribe. But there never was a Kiawah Indian tribe. Those of us who were history majors or minors in college, get upset with these misrepresentations. However, there was is a Kiowa Indian Tribe, who migrated from PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 If you are single and live in the Oak Run community you are welcome to attend and join our club.

Because there were an uneven number of players and also guests, some of the groups were assigned blinds for determining the final score. A blind is another player picked at random with his score being used for the foursome needing help. The winners with a 193 were Al Prachel, Sam Owens, Jan Flickinger, and Ed Simnowitz. Second with 194 were Ron Catapano, Vince Conolly, and two blinds. Third with a 195 were Emmett Dowling, Old Tom Morris, Duke Slayton, and a blind. Good to see you are once again hitting the long ball, Duke! Closest to the pin were Ron Catapano, Emmett Dowling, Don Aubrey, and Virgil Hein. Congratulations go to Al Millett for shooting a great 73, and to Ron Catapano for an excellent 75. Who says the heat and humidity cause the scores to go high?

JAMES My curiosity was piqued by the number of people reading the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey out in the open. Was the book just fun trash porn or a real modern-day romance that had drawn so many readTwisted fairy tale will leave you bored ers to it, particularly women? I was ready for anything when I ordered it for my Kindle Fire. What I wasnt prepared for was to be bored out of my skull. Within a few pages I was speed reading, convincing myself that any best seller this bad had to get better. The books general yuckiness comes not from the explicit sex but rather from the forgettable charactersa clumsy virgin and a wealthy borderline rapistand an execrable writing style. Anastasia Steele who has spent her young days reading classic English literature has learned nothing from it as she flushes crimson time and again and gushes after a sexual encounter with the handsome Christian Grey, My inner goddess is doing the dance of veils. On the other hand, had the book been better written it might be downright dangerous for the message it sends to love-starved females. That core message seems to be that happiness is possible with a controlling, possessive, cruel man who never allows his woman to act normally. And if only she could find the sad, lonely side of this dangerous male, everything would be perfect. Its a reminder of how many abused women have blamed themselves for their unhappy mates. This twisted fairy tale belongs in the same category with the movie Pretty Woman which suggests that turning a few tricks can bring you in touch with Prince Charming. Even so, the strong reactions to this disappointing book are surprising. Men grabbing the book from their girlfriends and hurling it away; hotels replacing Gideon Bibles with Fifty Shades. To each his own. As for me, I will not be reading the rest of the trilogy.

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

Yesterday Elvis Presleys fans gathered in Memphis to commemorate the 35th anniversary of his death. Commonly known by the single name Elvis, he remains one of Americas most popular singers. Todays Pun Alley rocks and rolls with Elvis and his many impersonators.Elvis LivesAndrews mother gave him twenty dollars to buy lunch for himself and his sister Terri at the diner down the street. On the way, they passed a man selling puppies for twenty dollars each. Unable to resist, Andrew bought one, named it Elvis, and went home. While he stayed outside playing with it, Terri went inside. Back so soon? her mother asked. Yes, said Terri. Im afraid we never made it to the diner. Why not? Because Andrew spent twenty dollars on Elvis. Elvis? Thats right, explained Terri. He ate nothin, bought a hound dog.Poor imitatorAn Elvis impersonator was loudly rehearsing late one night when there was a knock on his door. He opened it and found an enraged neighbor who asked, Do you know theres a little old lady sick upstairs? No, replied the impersonator, but if you sing a few bars, Ill try.His songsDid you hear about the new line of Elvis Presley themed steakhouses? They will be for people who love meat tender. Elvis had a song about dieting. It was Return To Slender. There was the time when Elvis went shopping in California during an earthquake and survived to sing a song about it: A Mall Shook Up. A long-lost Elvis song about a pig swept away in a flood has just been found. Its called You Aint Nothing but a Drowned Hog. The difference between Elvis and smart blondes is that Elvis has been sighted. In his salty early rock and roll days he made lots of dough and popularized The Twist. Some called him Elvis Pretzel-ey The face of Elvis appears on a Vegas nightclub marquee. Fans see it as a sign.His impersonatorsHe was so bad he couldnt find anyone to sing with, so he bought a duet yourself kit. The impersonator with the circus sang with some other performers. The ringmaster always announced, The next act will be a couple of jugglers, accompanied by a little music in a jugular vein. He sang in Key West. It was the first time he knew what key he was in. They tell me you love music. Yes, but never mind; keep on singing. He sang with one of the great bands of the day; at night they were not so good. Old Elvis impersonators never die; they just get out of sequins. He sang that song in a haunting manner. Do you think so? Yes, there was just the ghost of a resemblance to the original Elvis. The difference between most impersonators and a savings bond is that a savings bond eventually matures and makes money. That impersonator has a marvelous voice. He can hold one of his notes for half a minute. Thats nothing, I have held one of his notes for two years. The town has a big St. Patricks Day celebration, with a parade, green beer, and impersonator singing rock and roll music. Or at least, they claim its rock and roll; but its just a weak imitation. Its sham-rock. One impersonator believed it was his best job; but eventually he found he wasnt noteworthy.Seasoned musiciansI went to a great concert last week. It was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel. They had an impressive lineup an Elvis impersonator, Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66, Rosemary Clooney and 80s TV star Tyne Daly from Cagney & Lacey. The ensemble was billed as Presley, Serge, Rosemary and Tyne.Part timeStanding in line at a grocery store, Tom was pleased to hear bits of his favorite Elvis song. Unfortunately, the music would begin to play, only to quickly stop. The stores sound system did not seem to be working properly. Turning to the woman standing behind him in line. Tom said he hoped the store would get their system fixed. As the music started up again, Tom smiled and said, There it is again.

Some of these Jews are not affiliated with a synagogue; and a sizable percentage simply dont feel comfortable in a synagogue setting. The local branch of the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, has presented its own High Holiday services option, providing free Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services in a warm and inclusive setting. Chabads services are userfriendly, making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the beginner and the advanced. Song, commentary and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books, enable those of all levels to become active participants in the services. According to Jewish tradition, on the Jewish New Year, the doors of Heaven are open. G-d accepts prayers from everyone, said Lubavitch Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who is hosting free services in Ocala. The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community. Rabbi Yossi continued, The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory, insisted that Judaism is accessible to all Jews. During the Jewish High Holidays, accessibility can translate into different factors for different people, such as a nonjudgmental atmosphere, affordability of the services, or the ability for a beginner to follow along. Our goal is to lower the barriers of entry, and encourage each and every Jew to actively participate in these most holy and introspective days. Rosh Hashanah begins this year after sundown on Sept. 16, and extends until nightfall on Sept. 18. For more info or to RSVP visit www.JewishMarion.org or email info@jewishmarion.org Rosh Hashana Eve. September 16 services will take place at the Hilton of Ocala at 7:15 p.m. Rosh Hashana Day 1, and Day 2 Sept. 17th and 18 will take place at the Chabad Jewish Center 3509 S.W. 34th Ave. Circle. Services: 10 a.m., Shofar Blowing at 11:30 a.m. Chabad offers services geared for Jews of all backgrounds Fire Captain Alan Peters with Ocala Fire Rescue has achieved 30 years of service. He currently is a fire safety inspector in the Fire Prevention Division. Captain Peters was hired in 1982, and was one of the first paramedics to work at Ocala Fire Rescue.

We cant cut essential services, but we have to make cuts. Arnett said he ran because I looked at the candidates who were already running, and they didnt have the (business) background or experience. I felt the time had come to step up. The bottom line is I have 40 years of business experience and knowledge. He said he was a businessman, not a politician. Two other closely watched races went down to the wire, with late surges gaining victories for the candidates. In the race for Sheriff, Dan Kuhn finished with 52.88 percent, while Chris Blair came in at 47.12 percent. Kuhn faces Constitution Party member Bernie DeCastro in November, as well as a writein candidate. There are no Democrats in the race. George Tomyn won the School Superintendent primary, in a tough threeway race dominated by some negative campaigning. Tomyn scored 41.32 percent, current School Board member Jackie Porter registered 33.03 percent and Wally Wagoner finished third at 25.65 percent. Tomyn will go up against Diana Greene, a Democrat, in November. Both are administrators in the school system. Were very excited, very happy that we were able to run a professional, clean campaign and thats what youll see from me and my team in the future, an excited Tomyn said. Well present everything professionally, and I believe thats what will lead us to victory in November. Mike Graves won the multi-county decision for public defender.Jeff Bryan of the Riverland News in Dunnellon contributed to this report.

Both school issues on the ballot were defeated Tuesday, the first by 4.4 percent and the second by 17.56 percent Waiting for returns was tough for a pair of contenders who took easy victories. In a county judge race, Tommy Thompson defeated Leann MackeyBarnes, 59.33 to 40.67 percent. Thompson, who has tried criminal cases as an attorney, said it was like presenting the whole case and then waiting for the jury to come in with a decision. The other county judge race went to Robert Landt over Paul Guilfoil, 56.53 percent to 43.47 percent. Assistant Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox would normally have been in the back of the office taking part in the count, but since he was running, he could not take part in his normal work, and waited out front with the candidates and the press. After it became obvious that he would win easily, collecting 70.6 percent of the vote over Barbara Ruse, he commented, Im tired, excited, extremely happy. Those are my first emotions. Im happy with what we have done. He did add that he had an upcoming battle with Democrat Judge Cochran in November. Now in 83 days and 22 hours, we get to do it all again.

This donation is part of a national 3-million meal project in Tampa that will rally 20,000 people from the Bay area to hand-package rice, lentils, veggies and Himalayan sea salt into easy-to-make meals. This 25-cent per meal casserole will be used to stock the crisis food pantries in public schools to help hungry kids focus on their education and not on hunger. The event titled Project 3, will mobilize and empower the Tampa community to make a difference in the fight against hunger right here at home. FCE has currently selected the Marion County school district as one of the recipients of these nutritious and vital meals: Meals will be delivered throughout the first week of September to each school district, who will determine how the meals will be distributed to students. Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) is a nonprofit organization based in Orlando. The FCE movement was launched in 2010. FCE is a social charity that empowers and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children. Feeding Children Everywhere donating food to schools With school just around the corner, the community is invited get ready for the upcoming year at the first Back to School Safety Fair at Paddock Mall, sponsored by Sears and Coke. The event will be Saturday, Aug. 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event will offer multiple health and safety awareness exhibits, including, child identification, finger printing, backpack usage safety, bicycle and helmet safety, child seat checks, and more.

Kids will get an opportunity to meet both the OPD bicycle and K-9 units as well. They will also get an up-close look at Ocala Fire Rescue fire trucks and the ShandsCair helicopter. Kids will also enjoy several entertaining activities such as face painting, balloons, and meet Sir Gus Jr., the kissing camel. OPD is also holding their Safety Seat class. Pre-registration will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Class starts at 11 a.m. OPD will provide one seat per family.

BY JIM CLARK EditorVolunteer board members and firefighters are being sought by Friendship Station 21 of Marion County Fire Rescue. At the State Road 200 Coalition meeting on Monday, Aug. 13, Linda McFarland, Ed Lanza and Dave Heller from Station 21s volunteers made a plea for board members. The board serves as a support group for the full-time firefighters. Volunteers man the rehab truck, which provides air and cool drinks, among other things, to firefighters on the scene of large incidents. Volunteer firefighters must go through training and will respond to some incidents, but do not wear air packs or enter burning buildings. Those who might wish to serve on the board should get information at Station 21, which is on 95th Street near Lowes. They must pass a background check and must submit a resume. Prior firefighting experience is not necessary.

Fire Station 21 looking for volunteer board members BY JIM CLARK EditorVoters turned out for the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 14, and in the process sent one county commissioner packing. They also selected Republican candidates for sheriff and school superintendent. David Moore was the Republican primary winner for the nomination for County District 1, unseating Mike Amsden. Moore grabbed 51.14 percent to Amsdens 48.86 percent. Moore must face a write-in candidate in November. County Commissioner Stan McClain survived a tight battle with Jeff Gold. McClain had 52.26 percent to 47.74 percent for Gold. McClain also faces a writein hopeful in November. Write-in candidates are not listed on the ballot. A more competitive County Commission race will take place in November for District 5. Republican Earl Arnett tallied 36.16 percent, good enough to outpoll three other candidates, including Francine Johannesen at 27.34, Pat Gabriel at 24.68 and Butch Verrando at 11.82 percent. Arnett will go up against a Democratic challenger, Jessica Cookie Hadley, in the general election. Im very proud to have been selected, commented Arnett as the evening drew to a close at the elections office. Final totals were posted at 9:20 p.m. PLEASESEERACES, PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK EditorThere were several races decided on Tuesday, Aug. 14, during the primary, because there will be no opposition in November for the winners. Only one of the decisions was even close. There was also one primary winner who was out of his element waiting at the Elections Office as he advanced to the November general election with an overwhelming victory. In the School Board District 1 race, Nancy Stacy defeated Woody Clymer, 52.25 percent to 47.75 percent. This was a non-partisan election with no one running in November. Another final decision was in School Board District 2, where Carol Ely downed Robert Dobkowski, 61.97 to 38.03 percent.
