MARKING HER 100TH BIRTHDAY WORKING AT THE CIVIC THEATRE Page 15 CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 13 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Celebrating her 95th...at work Cracker Barrel honors hostess on her birthday PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJohn and Monica Whitenton of Oak Run were surprised to be seated at Cracker Barrel by a celebrity Rita Fitch, hostess, who was celebrating her 95th birthday on Aug. 16. BY JIM CLARK Editor To the casual observer and out-of-town traveler visiting Cracker Barrel on State Road 200 near Interstate 75, Rita Fitch may seem like just another dining room hostess at the popular chain. But when they learn more, they find out that, at age 95, shes the oldest Cracker Barrel employee in the country, and shes still going strong workinsg a full 35 hours a week. The store honored Rita on Thursday, Aug. 16, on the occasion of her 95th birthday (she doesnt look it), with a pair of cakes and a song, and several guests, many of whom dropped off cards, about two hours into her regular 2 to 9 p.m. shift. She makes the daily trek down busy State Road 200 to and from her home in Beverly Hills. She has been at Cracker Barrel since 2000, when she moved from Texas. She already had worked a couple of years there for the same company. Among the regulars she seated that afternoon were Bruce and Laurie Gregory, who live off West State Road 40. She really caters to veterans on Mondays. She supports our efforts, Bruce said. Indeed, Rita emphasized, Theyre very special to me, about the pair. She comes from a military family. Her husband was in the Army, a son was in the Marines and a brother was in the Air Force. That leaves the Navy, and, yes, thats where Rita worked, making fuses at a facility in Rochester, New York. Were a vet family, she said. She also worked for Eastman Kodak and for Xerox. She was born in Maine, and went to school in Rita Fitch still works a full-time schedule BY CAROLYN NICHOLS Florida Baptist WitnessThe history of College Road Baptist Church in Ocala is also an account of almost all John Downings pastoral career. The church will honor him this Sunday, Aug. 26, his 30th anniversary and the date of his retirement. Downing became College Road Baptist Chapels first full-time pastor in 1982, when the fledgling congregation met in a double-wide modular building on 10 acres west of Interstate 75 on State Road 200. The mission church had begun two years earlier at College Park Elementary School, a vision realized for Marion Baptist Association Director of Missions John Sible and Oakcrest Baptist Church Pastor Bill Terrell. They had a vision for a church on the southwest side of Ocala. That was the beginning, Downing said. Marion association and the Florida Baptist Convention, along with Oakcrest Baptist, Highlands Baptist Church and Wyomina Park Baptist Church helped the church get on her feet. Some of the 29 charter members of College Road Baptist came from those congregations, he said. Downing preached his first sermon as pastor Aug. 22, 1982, and the church was constituted a year later. It wasnt long before the new pastor realized Ocala was growing in the direction of the church. Ocala was in transition, in a growing situation. Paddock Mall was new, and people were moving this directionespecially people from northern states, he said. I saw that the church was going to take off. A building committee was formed almost as soon as the church was constituted, and a 225-seat sanctuary was finished in 1986. Although it seemed large at first, the congregation grew to fill the building, and a second service was added to accommodate a crowd that can grow by 10 percent with the influx of winter snowbirds, he said. Today the 575 members worship in PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJohn Downing looks over the Bible that was given to him when he was ordained on Nov. 25, 1973. His congregation will honor him Sunday evening as he retires.

Massachusetts, but her parents were Canadians. One of her earliest memories, when she was about 3, was traveling on a boat from Nova Scotia to Maine. Doug Campbell, manager, said that Rita embodies the Cracker Barrel spirit of customer hospitality. Her dedicated work ethic for taking care of our guests is unsurpassed. Shes a big part of the Cracker Barrel family. And how does Rita feel about her work? Ive met a lot of special people. Ive gotten to know so many of them. A lot of those same people evidently feel the same way about her. Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com three services on Sunday morning in the original sanctuary, and the church added an 18,000 square-foot education/fellowship building in 1996. The southwest side of Ocala is now home to several Baptist churches, he said. The veteran pastor grew up in First Baptist Church in Pinetta, in Madison County. His mother died shortly after his birth, and his father, John Wesley, married Beulah Pulliam when Downing was three. His grandmother, Laura Downing, was a constant in the young boys life, he said. She made a big difference in my life. I am dedicating my retirement celebration to her, he said. Downings family insisted on church attendance, but he resisted becoming a Christian. I say I was a druggie. I was drug to church all my life, so when I got old enough, I didnt want anything to do with it, he said. The influence of high school girlfriend Deloris Wadkins led him to accept the Lord. When her family decided to move from Madison to Arkansas, the couple married to avoid separation. We decided that it was too far to go to date, so we got married, he said. Twenty-year-old John Downing and his 19-year-old bride settled in Madison where he worked for Winn Dixie for 10 years. During that time, they had two children, Ann and John Jr. He also felt Gods call to preach. The young family moved to Hintonville, Mississippi, where he was pastor of Seminary Baptist Church while studying at William Carey College in Hattiesburg. After graduation in 1975, he was tired of school, he said. The Downings moved back to their home state where he served three years at South Flomaton Baptist Church, and supplemented his salary by returning to the grocery business. In 1979, Downing was ready to commit to a seminary education. He moved his family to Ozona, Mississippi, where he was pastor of First Baptist Church. Downing commuted to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary while his wife worked at a local bank. She earned her PHT degree during that time Putting Hubby Through, he said. Only weeks after graduation in 1982, the family made its last moveto Ocala. Thirty years later, 69-year-old Downing describes College Road Baptist as a very gracious, loving and generous church. The Downings plan to stay in Ocala. Downing said his life goal, holding forth the Word of LifeJesus, still is foremost in his future plans. Rest and travel are planned for the rest of 2012, to visit the mountains in Missouri, daughter Ann Lawton and her husband Tom in Laredo, Texas, and son John Jr., his wife Misty and five grandchildren in the Atlanta area. Downing then hopes to serve as interim pastor and supply preacher and to participate in mission trips. His life verse sets the pattern, he said: holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ, I may have cause to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain (Phil. 2:16).

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. This is an 8-session training, which is available either as an afternoon class, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or as an evening class, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. Consider this opportunity to learn how to form or join a CERT group in your community by signing up for this no-cost training program.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on professional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person even if its said in jest could delay or even derail your progress. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A colleague might try to goad you into saying or doing the wrong thing. Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your supporters stand with you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some difficult situations. And, of course, knowing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well-being of your ailing relationship. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youre also a wonderful host who can throw a really great party. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 T he other day, I was watching a baseball game on television and a commercial came on. It was an attack ad by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) against Republican nominee Connie Mack. It was about 11 weeks before the November election. I think I nearly cried. You mean we have nearly three months of this to go. I was so glad to walk out to my mailbox last Tuesday, election day, and get nothing but a couple of bills (of course, you can throw the political ads away, you cant do the same with the bills). In the final days before the Aug. 14 primary, the nasty ads that came into the mailbox were a little bit disgusting. Two of the worst were in the race for school superintendent on the Republican side. One ad against Jackie Porter asked, Who IS pulling Jackie Porters strings? It showed a hand with a puppet with Porters face. Then on the flip side of the mailed oversized card it said, Certainly not Marion County Taxpapers, thats for sure! If she even bothers to show up, that is! It went on with various charges, some old. Then there was the one that said George Tomyn cant bring his A game for our kids. On the reverse side it gave him a D for things such as school performance while principal, running the school food service, the fact that he was supposedly passed up more than thirty times for promotion to principal, lsck of a private sector job and accountability. The two ads were put out by a group or groups with two different names, but the same address 235 E. Virginia St., in Tallahassee. The only superintendent candidate on the ballot who wasnt the subject of one of these attack ads was Wally Wagoner. The voters, however, sent a message. The attack ad victims finished 1-2, and Wagoner finished a distant third. So much for the effectiveness of the ads. The sheriffs candidates werent immune to the advertising, either. The same group from the same address in Tallahassee put out an anti-Chris Blair mailing that said Double-Dippin Chris Blair wants an even sweeter deal from taxpayers. It listed a payout, lifetime income and sheriffs salary. It had a picture of a little girl looking over a dropped ice cream cone with three scoops on the ground. Another mailing from Tallahassee, this one from 1700 N. Monroe St., took on Dan Kuhn, saying, A legacy of law enforcement failure and Theres a new sheriff coming to town. Dan Kuhn doesnt measure up. Well, there is a new sheriff coming, and probably his name is Dan Kuhn, and the voters thought he measured up. Two incumbent county commissioners were also the subject of attack ads, and one of them lost. Mike Amsden was accused of years of failed leadership that has cost taxpayers millions of $$. That one came from Citizens for Honesty in Government, 5400 S.W. College Road, Suite 302-152, Ocala. Amsden lost to David Moore. There was also an ad against Stan McClain that said, How has our Community Been Affected by Politician Stan McClains Failed Policies. This one came from Citizens for a Quality Life, 1824 N.E. 2nd Ave., Ocala. McClain won the primary. That was all in the final few days before the election. Many of the candidates had positive mailings and, while I cant stand getting all that stuff in the mail, at least it wasnt insulting to me as a voter. So here we go, getting ready for the general election. If you thought the local attacks were bad, now you get to throw in the federal people. My biggest decision is which garbage can to throw this material in. Are the political ads recyclable? I sure hope not. Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Regardless of how you feel about U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, there was one thing that could be said for him. He was from Ocala and gave Marion County its own representative on Congress. The loss last week in the Republican Primary eliminated Stearns from contention and, because of redistricting, means that Marion County will no longer have a representative in Congress from here. That doesnt seem right for a county thats 15th in the state in population and third in area (behind Collier and Polk). A recent editorial in a Lakeland newspaper criticized the redistricting plan that split Polk County into four Congressional districts. But Polk has an incumbent representative who had no opposition. Marion is split among three Congressional districts, and none of the finalists is from our county. In District 3, Ted Yoho from Gainesville, who eliminated both Stearns and Steve Oelrich in the primary, will face Democrat J.R. Gaillot from Fleming Island in Clay County. In District 5, incumbent Corrine Brown, a Jacksonville Democrat, will face LeAnne Kolb, a Republican from Orange Park. In District 11, incumbent Republican Rick Nugent, a Brooksville Republican, will battle H. David Werder, who is from the town of Hudson way down in Pasco County. Notice, none of these candidates are from Marion County. In fact, none are even close to Marion County, except forYoho. The ironic thing is that the anti-Stearns forces may not have gained anything, especially if Yoho defeats Gaillot. Yoho is known as a Tea Party backer, and presumably has the same philosophy as Stearns did. Although stranger things have happened, its highly unlikely that Gaillot can take the victory, although hes probably thrilled not to have to face Stearns or Oelrich. Our county has been underrepresented in the Florida Senate, although we now have Charlie Stone. Now we wont have any hometown influence in Congress. With many people already feeling alienated by government, this only adds to the frustration. We need to find some strong local candidates to run for Congress in 2014. Its not to early to start thinking ahead. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY County loses in Stearns race Last minute attack ads: little effect LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BERNADETTE TOAN Special to the Citizen It was February, 1978 in Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding areas, it had been snowing constantly all morning, but nothing, not even a blizzard would keep my husband and me from our appointment. We caught the last train from Wilmington to Boston. The storm was not expected to be so big. It covered the whole northeast and lasted thirty three hours. The extremely high winds piled up four feet of snow and thousands of homes lost power. But we were determined and made it to that very important appointment before all traffic would come to a standstill. This was the day we were sworn in as naturalized Americans and our two sons became American citizens that day as well. All applicants who were assigned to be sworn in as American citizens showed up and the judge commended us all for making it under such weather conditions. My husband Jean was born in Shanghai, China and I was born and raised in a town named Drogheda in the smallest county of Ireland on the east coast. Just prior to leaving Ireland we had moved to Dublin, a stepping stone. I look back to that eventful day of July 7, 1962, when my sister Verona and I left Ireland in search of a new life. We both gained valuable experience working in Dublin for about four years. Months of preparation proceeded, with visa applications, vaccinations, references etc and apprehensively letting our parents finally know our plans. Fortunately the quota for Irish citizens was generous back in the early sixties. Saying goodbye to our tearful parents at Dublin airport was tough, and assuring them our plan was to go for only a year was not of much consolation to them. Arriving at Idlewild Airport, as it was called in those days, for us coming from the greens of home stepping off the plane into the chrome and concrete fairyland of vast parking lots and wide open spaces was quite something! At the usual customary immigration, customs etc. we found the people we encountered were helpful and friendly to newcomers. Our older brother Frank had already immigrated to The United States and his Irish friends helped us settle into life in Jackson Heights, Queens. We found an affordable basement apartment, sharing with an Irish girl friend of my brothers, and went job hunting. Verona found a job as secretary in an electrical engineering office, a job that lasted quite a while, and I applied for and was accepted as a reservationist with Pan American Airways, about the time when computers were introduced. This company of course is now gone with the proverbial wind. Both Verona and I quickly got used to our daily routine of commuting, catching crowded buses to the subway. A whole new experience was subway travel to Manhattan, crowded, hanging on to straps, all jammed together, rarely finding a seat. We had to adjust to all this rush and hurry after our easier, much less pressured life in Dublin! READER OPINIONS INVITED Celebrating 50 years in the United States PLEASESEETOAN PAGE9 Voters deserve the truthThe president is being blamed for political ads that depict Romney as a heartless candidate who would shove grandma off a cliff and also introducing vouchers for seniors to purchase their health benefits on the open market. Romney is accusing the president of taking 716 billion dollars out of the Medicare system and using this money to shore up Obamacare, which, by the wa,y is despised by any politician with an R after his name. Of course both of these accusations are wrong because the real truth is that these lies and distortions are the results of the Super Pacs gone wild. These Super Pacs were allowed by the Supreme Courts decision to allow hundreds of millions of dollars to be injected into the political campaigns on all levels. If you remember correctly, these Supremes have lifetime appointments and they can impose their will with their decisions on all issues that reach their court. This particular issue on money being injected secretly into political campaigns may possible be their worst decision of all time. Not knowing where this money comes from is only part of the problem. The biggest issue is influencing elections that decide the direction our country is heading politically.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING Each year we saved enough to go back to Dublin to spend time with our parents and family, but the time came for us to decide we would make the U.S our future home. I firmly believe and am greatly impressed that Americans have a wonderful capacity to welcome newcomers, showing real interest in new arrivals like us, applying for jobs. We did not have impressive references or experience, but companies were willing to give us a chance based on how we presented ourselves, openly and honestly .This was encouraging when Pan American Airways hired me in Reservations with no past airline experience. Later they upgraded me to Hotel Reservations, earning my 5 year pin eventually. Around this time I met my husband Jean, and about a year or so later married in February 1966. He worked at G.T.E, with the international division of his company, with projects in different countries, the first one was Hong Kong BCC, where our two sons were born, Patrick in 1967, and Michel in 1969.They were British subjects, by birth, and this was changed of course subsequently at Naturalization. Other projects overseas opened doors to periods of wonderful experiences and education for me, and for our family. Jean, as a young teenager back in Shanghai China had a very definite desire to come to the U.S., eventually made it here in 1955, completed his education and embraced this country just as my sister and I did. Now we look back. Fifty years this past July 7 marked the 50th anniversary of that wonderful eventful day, we proudly see as our Golden Anniversary Day and certainly marked it well with much rejoicing and celebration! Reflection: Fifty Years in this wonderful U.S.A has given us much, a new life with opportunities to grow and blend into the Melting Pot that this country is. What would our lives have been like had we never left Ireland? Hard to imagine, but God who is in charge of all things, has the answer. And we praise Him. Visiting Ireland in October 2010 was the highlight of the year for us both, enjoying every minute of it, reconnecting with family and friends. Today Verona and I are proud of our Irish heritage and we like to think our blend of American and Irish life is the perfect one! TOANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion results. What really is scary is that no one knows where this money comes from, it could be groups of Americans, the Chinese, the Russians or just people who want to see our country fail. Voters deserve the truth and the Supreme Court should admit that they made a mistake with these recent decisions that could and presently is destroying our country. Wake up Supremes, we can see it, why cant you? Jerry Segovis Ocala I dont think he could do it without me! Now theres a statement that shows how strong a man can not be. In a TV interview, Ann Romney stated, referring to Mitt Romney, we are partners, true partners in every sense of the way. I dont think he could do it without me. I dont think he could. Wow, what a statement by a wife whose husband is running for president, or should I say habitual runner for president. She also said that she would not do it again after the 2008 election where John McCain defeated Romney in the primary. Now, I ask you, whos the captain of the Romney ship? It sure doesnt sound like Mitt Romney. Between his wife, the Mormon church, poor tax situation, and Paul Ryan, I dont see much on the plus side for Romney. Having lived through presidents from Hoover on, I dont think Ive ever heard a wife say her husband couldnt do it without her. Sure, weve had strong first ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama, but these husbands ran for the office, not their wives. If I must say, and we do get a package deal here, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama, far from it. In her interview she seemed angry, bitter, not very nice and not in control of herself. Now this is a person who would have to interact with the American people, and even world leaders, while at her husbands side. Not only Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan scare me but Anne Romney as well. She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Maybe its because the Romneys stated they would gave 10 percent to charities but primarily the Mormon church, and if they released accurate tax reports, they would be out more money. This tax situation has become a big bugaboo for candidates, Republicans in particular. Michael Dukakis, stated and its been confirmed by other Massachusetts residents, that Romney really was a poor governor. Dukakis released six years of his income tax filings, but those who dont or wont release their tax returns, surely must have something to hide, say in the Cayman Islands. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The only thing the Republicans can rant on is the Obama health care law, yes, its the law. Senior citizens can get free hospice care under the Obama plan, through Medicaid, when they cant get it now as they have to pay for it. Ah, what a deceiving way the Republicans would like to lead the public down the primrose (thorny) path. One thing is for sure, all of us senior citizens and baby boomers had better send Romney back home, whichever state he calls home now. Who knows? Frankly, Romney scares me more than George W. Bush did and thats really, really scary. Bill Ford Oak Run Use common sense The order to have certain illegals being able to qualify for a drivers license, Social Security card, work permit, etc. is insane. Thankfully, we have a governor in Arizona who says No!. It would be nice if all governors would follow her example. We have no way of knowing exactly when the illegals got here or even proof of their age. What form of legal identification would they have? I guess we are just to take their word for it. (That is a little bit of sarcasm). Liberals still dont know the meaning of illegals, they are just interested in getting their vote, which is basically guaranteed in the future. Our media should constantly be putting factual information out that tells just how much these illegals are costing us in both dollars and in crime statistics. Knowing these numbers should put a stop to so many wanting them here in America. Illegal means they have no right to be here, period! Obama brags on his health care plan hoping that seniors are not smart enough to realize that taking $700 billion out of Medicare will end up costing us more in premiums and limit our benefits. Common sense should tell you this will happen. Others will be getting coverage that we seniors end up paying for. There is no way seniors will benefit by his being in office four more years, and if you dont realize this fact, we are in serious trouble and deserve what we get. We are now sixteen trillion dollars in debt a five trillion increase in less than four years under his watch. We cant survive without drastically cutting this debt! If we re-elect him, we may increase our debt to twenty trillion over the next four years to pay for all of his programs. Where do you think the money will come from? That should make our children and grandchildren very proud of us for making America the next Greece by 2016. The simple truth: If we did away with the tax breaks for the so called 1 percent, it wouldnt make a dent in our PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 LAST LETTERS FROM ATTU By Mary Breu Someone once said that heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Nowhere is that more true than in the story of Etta Jones, a nurse and school teacher who found romantic love and her place in the world in the wilds of Alaska, who survived the Japanese invasion of her last teaching post in Attu and four years in a Japanese prison before being rescued by General MacArthurs men. It all began in Pittsburgh when co-workers began talking to her sister Marie about teaching opportunities in Alaska. The idea intrigued her. But in the 1920s a single woman didnt travel 4,000 miles alone and certainly not to a place like the Alaskan interior. So she persuaded her sister Etta, who was also single, to go along with her. Etta had agreed on the condition that she would stay only for a year. But something magical happened that very first day in the little Athabascan village: To me, that first night in our new home was enchantment itself. I hung out the bedroom window, listening to the silence, which was so great it beat incessantly on the ears. It was living stillness. Had Etta not been a prolific letter writer of eastbound mail filled with sparkle and gusto, this amazing story would have been lost to readers. Not long after arriving in Alaska Marie and Etta were invited to dinner and one of the guests was Foster Jones, a prospector from Ohio. The two fell in love and were married a short time later. Ironically, it was Marie who found Alaska a cultural wasteland and returned to the states within the year. Etta took over Maries teaching post and for the next 18 years she and Foster taught English and math in isolated villages like Alutiq, Yupik and Aleut Native villages. During that time Foster became an item in Alaskan history as one of the mushers who carried the diphtheria serum into Nome during the January 1925 epidemic in 60-below weather. Etta and Foster never tried to change the people with whom they lived because they always respected their worth and dignity. In 1941 the Alaska Indian Service decided to open a school in Attu and the couple was hired to operate it. Friends were concerned for their safety because Attu was in Japans backyard. But the pair was fearless. The Japanese did invade the tiny island and Etta was captured and sent to Japan for the duration of the war. Although she accepted speaking engagements once back in the states, Jones would never talk about her captivity because it was too painful a subject. Thanks to her grandniece Mary Breu we have the completed picture of those years. This is a very fine read.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com deficit, paying for less than nine days. For all who have their hand out for other peoples money, what will you do for the other 356 days? Just where do you think the money is going to be coming from? Keep in mind that government has no money, its our tax money. This means we have no choice but to make a huge cut in spending. Common sense tells us that we should be more interested in our national debt and how our tax dollars are being spent than we are in how Romney spends his own money. It appears that is all the Obama ads have to talk about. Lets start asking more about Obamas history including how he wants to spend our money. The next few months should prove very interesting if the media would dare to do that. May God continue blessing America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Blatantly evilA sad political ad on television is the women defending their right to kill their unborn babies. They support Planned Parenthood and want free contraception. How can legalized abortion be a good thing when one of the two participating parties ends up dead? (1,212,400 abortions in 2011) Then, the voice-over says Im Barack Obama and I support this message. Democrats want to end to private gun ownership, call for amnesty for illegal aliens, support of the United Nations, the Law of the Sea Treaty, Small Arms Treaty, the North American Union and many programs that destroy our constitutional sovereignty replacing it with a one world government. They also want to destroy the coal industry, block the Keystone Pipe Line and prevent offshore drilling, removing sources of energy independence. The Democrats want taxpayers to pay interest on student loans, control the population through universal health care, defy the laws of nature by supporting gay marriage, use bail-out dollars to pump up the unions, give massive loans to friends in the solar business and continue to pass more regulations that stifle small business. The Democrats promote class warfare, claiming the rich must pay their fair share while 47 percent of the population pays no income tax. The Democrats definition of shovel ready jobs is to shovel out more welfare dollars at taxpayers expense, pandering to the recipients, to buy their votes. It is amazing that local Democrat politicians can associate themselves with a political party that is so blatantly evil. Harold Imgrund Ocala Guns kill people Guns kill people. Wow! Now there is a news flash. Our stupid ignorant Founding Fathers did not know that fact, when they wrote the 2nd amendment. Too bad they did not have a genius around to enlighten them, or is it a wing-nut? Does anyone doubt our Founding Fathers did not know what they were doing? That guns kill people? That was not the reason they passed the 2nd amendment, and any fool knows this. When one side has a gun, one side rules. When both sides have a gun, both sides have a chance. The Founding Fathers were well read, knowledgeable about revolutions, and revolutionary tactics, and tyrannical governments. They ran away from one. They fought a war to rid themselves of that government. They knew history repeats itself, and they gave us the 2nd amendment to cope with tyranny should it rear its ugly head again. Remember? Protection from tyrannical government is the reason for the 2nd amendment. There are always some people who will abuse everything. So, does that mean we have to surrender our 2nd amendment right, or do we deal with those who abuse gun use? Get tough with criminals. Stop coddling them. Make them see crime does not pay. Throwing out the 2nd amendment with the bath water is not an answer. Common sense, common sense? What ever happened to common sense?? D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 J ust when you think life cant get more complicated, it does. Personally, I work very hard trying to keep my life as simple as possible. And I must say I do not get very much help on this part, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the Bath and Body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruity-tooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone. I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Religion Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com S chool days, school days, good, old Golden Rule days. They started last Monday. Kids, with their backpacks and lunches, are on those big yellow vehicles. Its important for everyone to watch out for these buses stopping and starting, as well as for children walking along roads and crossing streets. High school can be difficult, as one dropout related to me. In English class, I went through a bad spell, and I when I was presented with oral quizzes in vocabulary, fear took the words out of my mouth. Math class did a number on me. As the term progressed, I became number and number. My angles were never right. They were never acute and always obtuse. I couldnt even add, so I turned out to be a total failure. In History class, I had no remembrance of things past because I couldnt see any future in studying the subject. On tests, I made one error for each era. I experienced vial reactions to Chemistry. I had no formula for success, so I couldnt master the elements of the subject and couldnt come up with any solutions. In Home Economics my cooking just didnt pan out, my cakes and pies were half-baked, and, ultimately, my goose was cooked. I failed Art because the subject didnt suit my pallet, so I drew a blank. In foreign language classes, I got lost in translation. I wasnt a Latin lover, and the teacher had to pardon my French because it was all Greek to me. I went out for the School Orchestra, but I was so high-strung and keyed up that I didnt know how to conduct myself. I fiddled around so much that the teacher wouldnt let me play even second fiddle. My failure was noteworthy, and my flatter E got me nowhere. In Drama class I couldnt get by the first stage of the course and I never got my act together. I tried being a stagehand, but I soon needed a change of scenery. Wood Shop was boring, and I couldnt do the drill. The subject went against my grain, so I didnt make the cut. In Computer Science, I developed a terminal illness. I lost my memory and my drive. I was all charged up to take Electric Shop, but I had a negative experience in that class. The light bulb above my head never lit up. I wasnt very bright, and I wasnt able to stay current. The teacher found my performance to be shocking and re-volting; but never electrifying, so he grounded me. In Drivers Ed., I thought I was in the drivers seat. I was placed in an accelerated course, but I was all over the road. I thought I got bad brakes, but the instructor told me I was shiftless, no good in the clutch, and unable to get it in gear. In Phys. Ed. I just wasnt fit for the class, and I wasnt up to speed. I couldnt learn the ropes, but I did climb the walls. I didnt shape up, so I was shipped out. Short subjectsSafety experts say school bus passengers should be belted. Grandmother learned to read in gramma school. I went to school to become a wit, only got halfway through. Carpenter students go to boarding school. When I went to school I was so smart my teacher was in my class for three years. A matter of principal On the first day of high school, the new principal heard a terrible commotion coming from a classroom. He rushed in and spotted one young man, much taller than the others, who was making the most noise. He seized him, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there. Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for an hour about good behavior. When he was finished, he said, Now, are there any questions? One girl stood up timidly and said, Please, sir, may we have our teacher back? Say What?An English teacher announced to the class, There are two words I dont allow in my class. One is gross and the other is cool. From the back of the room a voice called out, So, what are the words? Im off to go looking for those two words. Maybe Ill find them by next week.

A nother record for the Cherrywood Summer Fest was set on Aug. 18. Two hundred and fifty residents came out to enjoy a beautiful Florida evening; a delicious meal and the fantastic entertainment of Kenny Jackson. Tender and juicy pulled pork sandwiches with beans and potato salad was served up along with lemonade and iced tea. All of the guests were served in a surprisingly fast and orderly fashion which was only made possible by the excellent volunteer staff members. Ice Cream topped off the meal for dessert including Klondike Bars. Local favorite DJ Kenny Jackson provided the entertainment with gusto and style that even surpassed his last appearance here at Cherrywood. Kenny has a terrific singing voice and he started the evening off with popular country songs; some old standards and some humorous novelty tunes. He then played his wide variety of songs to the delight of all while interspersing his own witty sense of humor. The dance floor was crowded with couples moving to the upbeat songs and swaying gracefully to the romantic melodies. There was an abundance of smiles on the faces of those who danced the night away. Raffle ticket winners came bouncing up to the stage where Geri, Fred and Rich gave out the prizes. Applause was plentiful for the winners of the 50/50 drawings; Christine Archer; Marti Duesel; Christl Giovanniello and Fred OHern as well as for Gift Card winner Marie Ustianowski. We would be totally remiss if we didnt thank those who helped put this great night together. First, Cherrywood Property Management paid for the evening so it was free to all the residents. Logistical support from CPM was provided by Jim, Geri, Justin and Fred; all of whom did a great job. Second, the Social Committee has to be complimented on getting everyone through the food line with a fantastic hot meal in such a speedy fashion. (45 minutes total time to serve 250 residents) Taking care of the kitchen duties were Jay OHern, Beverly Idone, SanDee Spencer, Mick and Donna James. Dick Francis handled the drinks; Marty Duesel directed everyone through the line and Nancy Archer, Rich and Monica Becotte assisted with the 50/50 drawings. Congratulations to these volunteers for a job well done. Last but not least, thanks to our residents who came out; enjoyed friends and neighbors and set a new attendance record. What a great summer its been with more to come. Bowlers MeetingThe Cherrywood Bowling League will meet on Monday, Aug. 27 at 12:30 p.m. in the clubhouse to provide information on this years league play at Galaxy Lanes. Details of the upcoming season will be discussed; teams registered and new bowlers signed up. There are openings for regular bowlers and substitute positions also so all interested persons should plan to attend. Fran Hall, Secretary for the league, will be there to answer questions and provide details for everyone. Come to the meeting and then get ready for a season of fun. Veterans Club meeting On Thursday, Sept. 6, the Veterans Club returns to its regular meeting schedule. At 2 p.m. the meeting will be called to order and our guest speaker will discuss veterans burial benefits and options. Immediately following the presentation, other items on the agenda such as the food drive for Ritz House; fund raising; and similar important matters will be discussed. Club President Bill Mahar and the board strongly encourage all veterans to come to this meeting. If you are not yet a member of the club, this would be an excellent opportunity to join and become eligible for the all the benefits that membership brings. As all veterans know, just because our military service has ended does not mean an end to our service. Our brothers and sisters need our help and for those who can no longer speak; they and their families need our voices. Join your fellow vets on Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. Happy hour follows the meeting. Memorial Committee The Cherrywood Veterans Club Memorial Committee needs a few more volunteers. This compassionate group assists the family of a veteran when they want to hold a reception in the clubhouse following funeral services. The committee does such things as decorating; setting up refreshments provided by the family and handles other details as needed. The committee also insures that the deceased veterans name is placed on the memorial plaque in the clubhouse. If you would like to assist in this endeavor, contact Ruth Hurley or your humble correspondent at urperssec@yahoo.com and we will make sure your name is added to the contact list. AARP Driving Class Two Senior Safe Driving classes are scheduled for November at Cherrywood. Class I will be held on the 12th and 15th and Class II will be on the 26th & 29th. These morning classes are free to all Cherrywood Veterans Club members. For members of AARP the cost is $12 and for non-members, $14. There are two big benefits to taking this class. First, it enhances your safety and might well save your life or the life of a loved one.

Here is the remaining copy that was left out.) Paul was a 32nd degree Mason; a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club; and a war hero. Avis, is a member of National Association of Clock and Watch Collectors of America; Kenniller Historical Society in Maine; North Central Florida Polio Support Group; the Southwest Christian Church and associate member of Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge. This has been just a Readers Digest sketch of Avis and Pauls life together. The adventures the two of them shared both when they were apart and when they were together would fill far more pages than I have room for in this article. I thought it was important however that these two members of that Greatest Generation be recognized for their special story and for what they gave to our nation. As I began, originally, I planned to interview both Paul and Avis. Because of his illness, that was not possible and we postponed the appointment. Perhaps there is a message in this to all of us. Lets not pass up any opportunity to share our respect; our care or our stories with one another. Hug your partner and your family often; laugh at yourself and love your neighbor because you dont know how long you have or what your neighbor has been through. We are grateful to Avis and Paul for their service; their sacrifices and their inspiration.

A nother record for the Cherrywood Summer Fest was set on Aug. 18. Two hundred and fifty residents came out to enjoy a beautiful Florida evening; a delicious meal and the fantastic entertainment of Kenny Jackson. Tender and juicy pulled pork sandwiches with beans and potato salad was served up along with lemonade and iced tea. All of the guests were served in a surprisingly fast and orderly fashion which was only made possible by the excellent volunteer staff members. Ice Cream topped off the meal for dessert including Klondike Bars. Local favorite DJ Kenny Jackson provided the entertainment with gusto and style that even surpassed his last appearance here at Cherrywood. Kenny has a terrific singing voice and he started the evening off with popular country songs; some old standards and some humorous novelty tunes. He then played his wide variety of songs to the delight of all while interspersing his own witty sense of humor. The dance floor was crowded with couples moving to the upbeat songs and swaying gracefully to the romantic melodies. There was an abundance of smiles on the faces of those who danced the night away. Raffle ticket winners came bouncing up to the stage where Geri, Fred and Rich gave out the prizes. Applause was plentiful for the winners of the 50/50 drawings; Christine Archer; Marti Duesel; Christl Giovanniello and Fred OHern as well as for Gift Card winner Marie Ustianowski. We would be totally remiss if we didnt thank those who helped put this great night together. First, Cherrywood Property Management paid for the evening so it was free to all the residents. Logistical support from CPM was provided by Jim, Geri, Justin and Fred; all of whom did a great job. Second, the Social Committee has to be complimented on getting everyone through the food line with a fantastic hot meal in such a speedy fashion. (45 minutes total time to serve 250 residents) Taking care of the kitchen duties were Jay OHern, Beverly Idone, SanDee Spencer, Mick and Donna James. Dick Francis handled the drinks; Marty Duesel directed everyone through the line and Nancy Archer, Rich and Monica Becotte assisted with the 50/50 drawings. Congratulations to these volunteers for a job well done. Last but not least, thanks to our residents who came out; enjoyed friends and neighbors and set a new attendance record. What a great summer its been with more to come. Bowlers MeetingThe Cherrywood Bowling League will meet on Monday, Aug. 27 at 12:30 p.m. in the clubhouse to provide information on this years league play at Galaxy Lanes. Details of the upcoming season will be discussed; teams registered and new bowlers signed up. There are openings for regular bowlers and substitute positions also so all interested persons should plan to attend. Fran Hall, Secretary for the league, will be there to answer questions and provide details for everyone. Come to the meeting and then get ready for a season of fun. Veterans Club meeting On Thursday, Sept. 6, the Veterans Club returns to its regular meeting schedule. At 2 p.m. the meeting will be called to order and our guest speaker will discuss veterans burial benefits and options. Immediately following the presentation, other items on the agenda such as the food drive for Ritz House; fund raising; and similar important matters will be discussed. Club President Bill Mahar and the board strongly encourage all veterans to come to this meeting. If you are not yet a member of the club, this would be an excellent opportunity to join and become eligible for the all the benefits that membership brings. As all veterans know, just because our military service has ended does not mean an end to our service. Our brothers and sisters need our help and for those who can no longer speak; they and their families need our voices. Join your fellow vets on Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. Happy hour follows the meeting. Memorial Committee The Cherrywood Veterans Club Memorial Committee needs a few more volunteers. This compassionate group assists the family of a veteran when they want to hold a reception in the clubhouse following funeral services. The committee does such things as decorating; setting up refreshments provided by the family and handles other details as needed. The committee also insures that the deceased veterans name is placed on the memorial plaque in the clubhouse. If you would like to assist in this endeavor, contact Ruth Hurley or your humble correspondent at urperssec@yahoo.com and we will make sure your name is added to the contact list. AARP Driving Class Two Senior Safe Driving classes are scheduled for November at Cherrywood. Class I will be held on the 12th and 15th and Class II will be on the 26th & 29th. These morning classes are free to all Cherrywood Veterans Club members. For members of AARP the cost is $12 and for non-members, $14. There are two big benefits to taking this class. First, it enhances your safety and might well save your life or the life of a loved one.

Religion Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com S chool days, school days, good, old Golden Rule days. They started last Monday. Kids, with their backpacks and lunches, are on those big yellow vehicles. Its important for everyone to watch out for these buses stopping and starting, as well as for children walking along roads and crossing streets. High school can be difficult, as one dropout related to me. In English class, I went through a bad spell, and I when I was presented with oral quizzes in vocabulary, fear took the words out of my mouth. Math class did a number on me. As the term progressed, I became number and number. My angles were never right. They were never acute and always obtuse. I couldnt even add, so I turned out to be a total failure. In History class, I had no remembrance of things past because I couldnt see any future in studying the subject. On tests, I made one error for each era. I experienced vial reactions to Chemistry. I had no formula for success, so I couldnt master the elements of the subject and couldnt come up with any solutions. In Home Economics my cooking just didnt pan out, my cakes and pies were half-baked, and, ultimately, my goose was cooked. I failed Art because the subject didnt suit my pallet, so I drew a blank. In foreign language classes, I got lost in translation. I wasnt a Latin lover, and the teacher had to pardon my French because it was all Greek to me. I went out for the School Orchestra, but I was so high-strung and keyed up that I didnt know how to conduct myself. I fiddled around so much that the teacher wouldnt let me play even second fiddle. My failure was noteworthy, and my flatter E got me nowhere. In Drama class I couldnt get by the first stage of the course and I never got my act together. I tried being a stagehand, but I soon needed a change of scenery. Wood Shop was boring, and I couldnt do the drill. The subject went against my grain, so I didnt make the cut. In Computer Science, I developed a terminal illness. I lost my memory and my drive. I was all charged up to take Electric Shop, but I had a negative experience in that class. The light bulb above my head never lit up. I wasnt very bright, and I wasnt able to stay current. The teacher found my performance to be shocking and re-volting; but never electrifying, so he grounded me. In Drivers Ed., I thought I was in the drivers seat. I was placed in an accelerated course, but I was all over the road. I thought I got bad brakes, but the instructor told me I was shiftless, no good in the clutch, and unable to get it in gear. In Phys. Ed. I just wasnt fit for the class, and I wasnt up to speed. I couldnt learn the ropes, but I did climb the walls. I didnt shape up, so I was shipped out. Short subjectsSafety experts say school bus passengers should be belted. Grandmother learned to read in gramma school. I went to school to become a wit, only got halfway through. Carpenter students go to boarding school. When I went to school I was so smart my teacher was in my class for three years. A matter of principal On the first day of high school, the new principal heard a terrible commotion coming from a classroom. He rushed in and spotted one young man, much taller than the others, who was making the most noise. He seized him, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there. Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for an hour about good behavior. When he was finished, he said, Now, are there any questions? One girl stood up timidly and said, Please, sir, may we have our teacher back? Say What?An English teacher announced to the class, There are two words I dont allow in my class. One is gross and the other is cool. From the back of the room a voice called out, So, what are the words? Im off to go looking for those two words. Maybe Ill find them by next week.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com deficit, paying for less than nine days. For all who have their hand out for other peoples money, what will you do for the other 356 days? Just where do you think the money is going to be coming from? Keep in mind that government has no money, its our tax money. This means we have no choice but to make a huge cut in spending. Common sense tells us that we should be more interested in our national debt and how our tax dollars are being spent than we are in how Romney spends his own money. It appears that is all the Obama ads have to talk about. Lets start asking more about Obamas history including how he wants to spend our money. The next few months should prove very interesting if the media would dare to do that. May God continue blessing America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Blatantly evilA sad political ad on television is the women defending their right to kill their unborn babies. They support Planned Parenthood and want free contraception. How can legalized abortion be a good thing when one of the two participating parties ends up dead? (1,212,400 abortions in 2011) Then, the voice-over says Im Barack Obama and I support this message. Democrats want to end to private gun ownership, call for amnesty for illegal aliens, support of the United Nations, the Law of the Sea Treaty, Small Arms Treaty, the North American Union and many programs that destroy our constitutional sovereignty replacing it with a one world government. They also want to destroy the coal industry, block the Keystone Pipe Line and prevent offshore drilling, removing sources of energy independence. The Democrats want taxpayers to pay interest on student loans, control the population through universal health care, defy the laws of nature by supporting gay marriage, use bail-out dollars to pump up the unions, give massive loans to friends in the solar business and continue to pass more regulations that stifle small business. The Democrats promote class warfare, claiming the rich must pay their fair share while 47 percent of the population pays no income tax. The Democrats definition of shovel ready jobs is to shovel out more welfare dollars at taxpayers expense, pandering to the recipients, to buy their votes. It is amazing that local Democrat politicians can associate themselves with a political party that is so blatantly evil. Harold Imgrund Ocala Guns kill people Guns kill people. Wow! Now there is a news flash. Our stupid ignorant Founding Fathers did not know that fact, when they wrote the 2nd amendment. Too bad they did not have a genius around to enlighten them, or is it a wing-nut? Does anyone doubt our Founding Fathers did not know what they were doing? That guns kill people? That was not the reason they passed the 2nd amendment, and any fool knows this. When one side has a gun, one side rules. When both sides have a gun, both sides have a chance. The Founding Fathers were well read, knowledgeable about revolutions, and revolutionary tactics, and tyrannical governments. They ran away from one. They fought a war to rid themselves of that government. They knew history repeats itself, and they gave us the 2nd amendment to cope with tyranny should it rear its ugly head again. Remember? Protection from tyrannical government is the reason for the 2nd amendment. There are always some people who will abuse everything. So, does that mean we have to surrender our 2nd amendment right, or do we deal with those who abuse gun use? Get tough with criminals. Stop coddling them. Make them see crime does not pay. Throwing out the 2nd amendment with the bath water is not an answer. Common sense, common sense? What ever happened to common sense?? D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 J ust when you think life cant get more complicated, it does. Personally, I work very hard trying to keep my life as simple as possible. And I must say I do not get very much help on this part, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the Bath and Body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruity-tooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone. I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING Each year we saved enough to go back to Dublin to spend time with our parents and family, but the time came for us to decide we would make the U.S our future home. I firmly believe and am greatly impressed that Americans have a wonderful capacity to welcome newcomers, showing real interest in new arrivals like us, applying for jobs. We did not have impressive references or experience, but companies were willing to give us a chance based on how we presented ourselves, openly and honestly .This was encouraging when Pan American Airways hired me in Reservations with no past airline experience. Later they upgraded me to Hotel Reservations, earning my 5 year pin eventually. Around this time I met my husband Jean, and about a year or so later married in February 1966. He worked at G.T.E, with the international division of his company, with projects in different countries, the first one was Hong Kong BCC, where our two sons were born, Patrick in 1967, and Michel in 1969.They were British subjects, by birth, and this was changed of course subsequently at Naturalization. Other projects overseas opened doors to periods of wonderful experiences and education for me, and for our family. Jean, as a young teenager back in Shanghai China had a very definite desire to come to the U.S., eventually made it here in 1955, completed his education and embraced this country just as my sister and I did. Now we look back. Fifty years this past July 7 marked the 50th anniversary of that wonderful eventful day, we proudly see as our Golden Anniversary Day and certainly marked it well with much rejoicing and celebration! Reflection: Fifty Years in this wonderful U.S.A has given us much, a new life with opportunities to grow and blend into the Melting Pot that this country is. What would our lives have been like had we never left Ireland? Hard to imagine, but God who is in charge of all things, has the answer. And we praise Him. Visiting Ireland in October 2010 was the highlight of the year for us both, enjoying every minute of it, reconnecting with family and friends. Today Verona and I are proud of our Irish heritage and we like to think our blend of American and Irish life is the perfect one! TOANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion results. What really is scary is that no one knows where this money comes from, it could be groups of Americans, the Chinese, the Russians or just people who want to see our country fail. Voters deserve the truth and the Supreme Court should admit that they made a mistake with these recent decisions that could and presently is destroying our country. Wake up Supremes, we can see it, why cant you? Jerry Segovis Ocala I dont think he could do it without me! Now theres a statement that shows how strong a man can not be. In a TV interview, Ann Romney stated, referring to Mitt Romney, we are partners, true partners in every sense of the way. I dont think he could do it without me. I dont think he could. Wow, what a statement by a wife whose husband is running for president, or should I say habitual runner for president. She also said that she would not do it again after the 2008 election where John McCain defeated Romney in the primary. Now, I ask you, whos the captain of the Romney ship? It sure doesnt sound like Mitt Romney. Between his wife, the Mormon church, poor tax situation, and Paul Ryan, I dont see much on the plus side for Romney. Having lived through presidents from Hoover on, I dont think Ive ever heard a wife say her husband couldnt do it without her. Sure, weve had strong first ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama, but these husbands ran for the office, not their wives. If I must say, and we do get a package deal here, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama, far from it. In her interview she seemed angry, bitter, not very nice and not in control of herself. Now this is a person who would have to interact with the American people, and even world leaders, while at her husbands side. Not only Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan scare me but Anne Romney as well. She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Maybe its because the Romneys stated they would gave 10 percent to charities but primarily the Mormon church, and if they released accurate tax reports, they would be out more money. This tax situation has become a big bugaboo for candidates, Republicans in particular. Michael Dukakis, stated and its been confirmed by other Massachusetts residents, that Romney really was a poor governor. Dukakis released six years of his income tax filings, but those who dont or wont release their tax returns, surely must have something to hide, say in the Cayman Islands. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The only thing the Republicans can rant on is the Obama health care law, yes, its the law. Senior citizens can get free hospice care under the Obama plan, through Medicaid, when they cant get it now as they have to pay for it. Ah, what a deceiving way the Republicans would like to lead the public down the primrose (thorny) path. One thing is for sure, all of us senior citizens and baby boomers had better send Romney back home, whichever state he calls home now. Who knows? Frankly, Romney scares me more than George W. Bush did and thats really, really scary. Bill Ford Oak Run Use common sense The order to have certain illegals being able to qualify for a drivers license, Social Security card, work permit, etc. is insane. Thankfully, we have a governor in Arizona who says No!. It would be nice if all governors would follow her example. We have no way of knowing exactly when the illegals got here or even proof of their age. What form of legal identification would they have? I guess we are just to take their word for it. (That is a little bit of sarcasm). Liberals still dont know the meaning of illegals, they are just interested in getting their vote, which is basically guaranteed in the future. Our media should constantly be putting factual information out that tells just how much these illegals are costing us in both dollars and in crime statistics. Knowing these numbers should put a stop to so many wanting them here in America. Illegal means they have no right to be here, period! Obama brags on his health care plan hoping that seniors are not smart enough to realize that taking $700 billion out of Medicare will end up costing us more in premiums and limit our benefits. Common sense should tell you this will happen. Others will be getting coverage that we seniors end up paying for. There is no way seniors will benefit by his being in office four more years, and if you dont realize this fact, we are in serious trouble and deserve what we get. We are now sixteen trillion dollars in debt a five trillion increase in less than four years under his watch. We cant survive without drastically cutting this debt! If we re-elect him, we may increase our debt to twenty trillion over the next four years to pay for all of his programs. Where do you think the money will come from? That should make our children and grandchildren very proud of us for making America the next Greece by 2016. The simple truth: If we did away with the tax breaks for the so called 1 percent, it wouldnt make a dent in our PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 LAST LETTERS FROM ATTU By Mary Breu Someone once said that heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Nowhere is that more true than in the story of Etta Jones, a nurse and school teacher who found romantic love and her place in the world in the wilds of Alaska, who survived the Japanese invasion of her last teaching post in Attu and four years in a Japanese prison before being rescued by General MacArthurs men. It all began in Pittsburgh when co-workers began talking to her sister Marie about teaching opportunities in Alaska. The idea intrigued her. But in the 1920s a single woman didnt travel 4,000 miles alone and certainly not to a place like the Alaskan interior. So she persuaded her sister Etta, who was also single, to go along with her. Etta had agreed on the condition that she would stay only for a year. But something magical happened that very first day in the little Athabascan village: To me, that first night in our new home was enchantment itself. I hung out the bedroom window, listening to the silence, which was so great it beat incessantly on the ears. It was living stillness. Had Etta not been a prolific letter writer of eastbound mail filled with sparkle and gusto, this amazing story would have been lost to readers. Not long after arriving in Alaska Marie and Etta were invited to dinner and one of the guests was Foster Jones, a prospector from Ohio. The two fell in love and were married a short time later. Ironically, it was Marie who found Alaska a cultural wasteland and returned to the states within the year. Etta took over Maries teaching post and for the next 18 years she and Foster taught English and math in isolated villages like Alutiq, Yupik and Aleut Native villages. During that time Foster became an item in Alaskan history as one of the mushers who carried the diphtheria serum into Nome during the January 1925 epidemic in 60-below weather. Etta and Foster never tried to change the people with whom they lived because they always respected their worth and dignity. In 1941 the Alaska Indian Service decided to open a school in Attu and the couple was hired to operate it. Friends were concerned for their safety because Attu was in Japans backyard. But the pair was fearless. The Japanese did invade the tiny island and Etta was captured and sent to Japan for the duration of the war. Although she accepted speaking engagements once back in the states, Jones would never talk about her captivity because it was too painful a subject. Thanks to her grandniece Mary Breu we have the completed picture of those years. This is a very fine read.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 T he other day, I was watching a baseball game on television and a commercial came on. It was an attack ad by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) against Republican nominee Connie Mack. It was about 11 weeks before the November election. I think I nearly cried. You mean we have nearly three months of this to go. I was so glad to walk out to my mailbox last Tuesday, election day, and get nothing but a couple of bills (of course, you can throw the political ads away, you cant do the same with the bills). In the final days before the Aug. 14 primary, the nasty ads that came into the mailbox were a little bit disgusting. Two of the worst were in the race for school superintendent on the Republican side. One ad against Jackie Porter asked, Who IS pulling Jackie Porters strings? It showed a hand with a puppet with Porters face. Then on the flip side of the mailed oversized card it said, Certainly not Marion County Taxpapers, thats for sure! If she even bothers to show up, that is! It went on with various charges, some old. Then there was the one that said George Tomyn cant bring his A game for our kids. On the reverse side it gave him a D for things such as school performance while principal, running the school food service, the fact that he was supposedly passed up more than thirty times for promotion to principal, lsck of a private sector job and accountability. The two ads were put out by a group or groups with two different names, but the same address 235 E. Virginia St., in Tallahassee. The only superintendent candidate on the ballot who wasnt the subject of one of these attack ads was Wally Wagoner. The voters, however, sent a message. The attack ad victims finished 1-2, and Wagoner finished a distant third. So much for the effectiveness of the ads. The sheriffs candidates werent immune to the advertising, either. The same group from the same address in Tallahassee put out an anti-Chris Blair mailing that said Double-Dippin Chris Blair wants an even sweeter deal from taxpayers. It listed a payout, lifetime income and sheriffs salary. It had a picture of a little girl looking over a dropped ice cream cone with three scoops on the ground. Another mailing from Tallahassee, this one from 1700 N. Monroe St., took on Dan Kuhn, saying, A legacy of law enforcement failure and Theres a new sheriff coming to town. Dan Kuhn doesnt measure up. Well, there is a new sheriff coming, and probably his name is Dan Kuhn, and the voters thought he measured up. Two incumbent county commissioners were also the subject of attack ads, and one of them lost. Mike Amsden was accused of years of failed leadership that has cost taxpayers millions of $$. That one came from Citizens for Honesty in Government, 5400 S.W. College Road, Suite 302-152, Ocala. Amsden lost to David Moore. There was also an ad against Stan McClain that said, How has our Community Been Affected by Politician Stan McClains Failed Policies. This one came from Citizens for a Quality Life, 1824 N.E. 2nd Ave., Ocala. McClain won the primary. That was all in the final few days before the election. Many of the candidates had positive mailings and, while I cant stand getting all that stuff in the mail, at least it wasnt insulting to me as a voter. So here we go, getting ready for the general election. If you thought the local attacks were bad, now you get to throw in the federal people. My biggest decision is which garbage can to throw this material in. Are the political ads recyclable? I sure hope not. Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Regardless of how you feel about U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, there was one thing that could be said for him. He was from Ocala and gave Marion County its own representative on Congress. The loss last week in the Republican Primary eliminated Stearns from contention and, because of redistricting, means that Marion County will no longer have a representative in Congress from here. That doesnt seem right for a county thats 15th in the state in population and third in area (behind Collier and Polk). A recent editorial in a Lakeland newspaper criticized the redistricting plan that split Polk County into four Congressional districts. But Polk has an incumbent representative who had no opposition. Marion is split among three Congressional districts, and none of the finalists is from our county. In District 3, Ted Yoho from Gainesville, who eliminated both Stearns and Steve Oelrich in the primary, will face Democrat J.R. Gaillot from Fleming Island in Clay County. In District 5, incumbent Corrine Brown, a Jacksonville Democrat, will face LeAnne Kolb, a Republican from Orange Park. In District 11, incumbent Republican Rick Nugent, a Brooksville Republican, will battle H. David Werder, who is from the town of Hudson way down in Pasco County. Notice, none of these candidates are from Marion County. In fact, none are even close to Marion County, except forYoho. The ironic thing is that the anti-Stearns forces may not have gained anything, especially if Yoho defeats Gaillot. Yoho is known as a Tea Party backer, and presumably has the same philosophy as Stearns did. Although stranger things have happened, its highly unlikely that Gaillot can take the victory, although hes probably thrilled not to have to face Stearns or Oelrich. Our county has been underrepresented in the Florida Senate, although we now have Charlie Stone. Now we wont have any hometown influence in Congress. With many people already feeling alienated by government, this only adds to the frustration. We need to find some strong local candidates to run for Congress in 2014. Its not to early to start thinking ahead. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY County loses in Stearns race Last minute attack ads: little effect LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BERNADETTE TOAN Special to the Citizen It was February, 1978 in Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding areas, it had been snowing constantly all morning, but nothing, not even a blizzard would keep my husband and me from our appointment. We caught the last train from Wilmington to Boston. The storm was not expected to be so big. It covered the whole northeast and lasted thirty three hours. The extremely high winds piled up four feet of snow and thousands of homes lost power. But we were determined and made it to that very important appointment before all traffic would come to a standstill. This was the day we were sworn in as naturalized Americans and our two sons became American citizens that day as well. All applicants who were assigned to be sworn in as American citizens showed up and the judge commended us all for making it under such weather conditions. My husband Jean was born in Shanghai, China and I was born and raised in a town named Drogheda in the smallest county of Ireland on the east coast. Just prior to leaving Ireland we had moved to Dublin, a stepping stone. I look back to that eventful day of July 7, 1962, when my sister Verona and I left Ireland in search of a new life. We both gained valuable experience working in Dublin for about four years. Months of preparation proceeded, with visa applications, vaccinations, references etc and apprehensively letting our parents finally know our plans. Fortunately the quota for Irish citizens was generous back in the early sixties. Saying goodbye to our tearful parents at Dublin airport was tough, and assuring them our plan was to go for only a year was not of much consolation to them. Arriving at Idlewild Airport, as it was called in those days, for us coming from the greens of home stepping off the plane into the chrome and concrete fairyland of vast parking lots and wide open spaces was quite something! At the usual customary immigration, customs etc. we found the people we encountered were helpful and friendly to newcomers. Our older brother Frank had already immigrated to The United States and his Irish friends helped us settle into life in Jackson Heights, Queens. We found an affordable basement apartment, sharing with an Irish girl friend of my brothers, and went job hunting. Verona found a job as secretary in an electrical engineering office, a job that lasted quite a while, and I applied for and was accepted as a reservationist with Pan American Airways, about the time when computers were introduced. This company of course is now gone with the proverbial wind. Both Verona and I quickly got used to our daily routine of commuting, catching crowded buses to the subway. A whole new experience was subway travel to Manhattan, crowded, hanging on to straps, all jammed together, rarely finding a seat. We had to adjust to all this rush and hurry after our easier, much less pressured life in Dublin! READER OPINIONS INVITED Celebrating 50 years in the United States PLEASESEETOAN PAGE9 Voters deserve the truthThe president is being blamed for political ads that depict Romney as a heartless candidate who would shove grandma off a cliff and also introducing vouchers for seniors to purchase their health benefits on the open market. Romney is accusing the president of taking 716 billion dollars out of the Medicare system and using this money to shore up Obamacare, which, by the wa,y is despised by any politician with an R after his name. Of course both of these accusations are wrong because the real truth is that these lies and distortions are the results of the Super Pacs gone wild. These Super Pacs were allowed by the Supreme Courts decision to allow hundreds of millions of dollars to be injected into the political campaigns on all levels. If you remember correctly, these Supremes have lifetime appointments and they can impose their will with their decisions on all issues that reach their court. This particular issue on money being injected secretly into political campaigns may possible be their worst decision of all time. Not knowing where this money comes from is only part of the problem. The biggest issue is influencing elections that decide the direction our country is heading politically. You may agree or disagree, but money can and has been influencing elecPLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com A call for blood donors and a correction of information is this weeks OTOW Happenings.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on professional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person even if its said in jest could delay or even derail your progress. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A colleague might try to goad you into saying or doing the wrong thing. Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your supporters stand with you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some difficult situations. And, of course, knowing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well-being of your ailing relationship. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youre also a wonderful host who can throw a really great party. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Any members in the area are welcomed. 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. This is an 8-session training, which is available either as an afternoon class, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or as an evening class, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. Consider this opportunity to learn how to form or join a CERT group in your community by signing up for this no-cost training program. For more information and for an application, contact Bob Conn, Trainer, at 352-8120853.

Massachusetts, but her parents were Canadians. One of her earliest memories, when she was about 3, was traveling on a boat from Nova Scotia to Maine. Doug Campbell, manager, said that Rita embodies the Cracker Barrel spirit of customer hospitality. Her dedicated work ethic for taking care of our guests is unsurpassed. Shes a big part of the Cracker Barrel family. And how does Rita feel about her work? Ive met a lot of special people. Ive gotten to know so many of them. A lot of those same people evidently feel the same way about her. Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com three services on Sunday morning in the original sanctuary, and the church added an 18,000 square-foot education/fellowship building in 1996. The southwest side of Ocala is now home to several Baptist churches, he said. The veteran pastor grew up in First Baptist Church in Pinetta, in Madison County. His mother died shortly after his birth, and his father, John Wesley, married Beulah Pulliam when Downing was three. His grandmother, Laura Downing, was a constant in the young boys life, he said. She made a big difference in my life. I am dedicating my retirement celebration to her, he said. Downings family insisted on church attendance, but he resisted becoming a Christian. I say I was a druggie. I was drug to church all my life, so when I got old enough, I didnt want anything to do with it, he said. The influence of high school girlfriend Deloris Wadkins led him to accept the Lord. When her family decided to move from Madison to Arkansas, the couple married to avoid separation. We decided that it was too far to go to date, so we got married, he said. Twenty-year-old John Downing and his 19-year-old bride settled in Madison where he worked for Winn Dixie for 10 years. During that time, they had two children, Ann and John Jr. He also felt Gods call to preach. The young family moved to Hintonville, Mississippi, where he was pastor of Seminary Baptist Church while studying at William Carey College in Hattiesburg. After graduation in 1975, he was tired of school, he said. The Downings moved back to their home state where he served three years at South Flomaton Baptist Church, and supplemented his salary by returning to the grocery business. In 1979, Downing was ready to commit to a seminary education. He moved his family to Ozona, Mississippi, where he was pastor of First Baptist Church. Downing commuted to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary while his wife worked at a local bank. She earned her PHT degree during that time Putting Hubby Through, he said. Only weeks after graduation in 1982, the family made its last moveto Ocala. Thirty years later, 69-year-old Downing describes College Road Baptist as a very gracious, loving and generous church. The Downings plan to stay in Ocala. Downing said his life goal, holding forth the Word of LifeJesus, still is foremost in his future plans. Rest and travel are planned for the rest of 2012, to visit the mountains in Missouri, daughter Ann Lawton and her husband Tom in Laredo, Texas, and son John Jr., his wife Misty and five grandchildren in the Atlanta area. Downing then hopes to serve as interim pastor and supply preacher and to participate in mission trips. His life verse sets the pattern, he said: holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ, I may have cause to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain (Phil. 2:16).

MARKING HER 100TH BIRTHDAY WORKING AT THE CIVIC THEATRE Page 15 CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 13 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Celebrating her 95th...at work Cracker Barrel honors hostess on her birthday PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJohn and Monica Whitenton of Oak Run were surprised to be seated at Cracker Barrel by a celebrity Rita Fitch, hostess, who was celebrating her 95th birthday on Aug. 16. BY JIM CLARK Editor To the casual observer and out-of-town traveler visiting Cracker Barrel on State Road 200 near Interstate 75, Rita Fitch may seem like just another dining room hostess at the popular chain. But when they learn more, they find out that, at age 95, shes the oldest Cracker Barrel employee in the country, and shes still going strong workinsg a full 35 hours a week. The store honored Rita on Thursday, Aug. 16, on the occasion of her 95th birthday (she doesnt look it), with a pair of cakes and a song, and several guests, many of whom dropped off cards, about two hours into her regular 2 to 9 p.m. shift. She makes the daily trek down busy State Road 200 to and from her home in Beverly Hills. She has been at Cracker Barrel since 2000, when she moved from Texas. She already had worked a couple of years there for the same company. Among the regulars she seated that afternoon were Bruce and Laurie Gregory, who live off West State Road 40.

The church will honor him this Sunday, Aug. 26, his 30th anniversary and the date of his retirement. Downing became College Road Baptist Chapels first full-time pastor in 1982, when the fledgling congregation met in a double-wide modular building on 10 acres west of Interstate 75 on State Road 200. The mission church had begun two years earlier at College Park Elementary School, a vision realized for Marion Baptist Association Director of Missions John Sible and Oakcrest Baptist Church Pastor Bill Terrell. They had a vision for a church on the southwest side of Ocala. That was the beginning, Downing said. Marion association and the Florida Baptist Convention, along with Oakcrest Baptist, Highlands Baptist Church and Wyomina Park Baptist Church helped the church get on her feet. Some of the 29 charter members of College Road Baptist came from those congregations, he said. Downing preached his first sermon as pastor Aug. 22, 1982, and the church was constituted a year later. It wasnt long before the new pastor realized Ocala was growing in the direction of the church. Ocala was in transition, in a growing situation. Paddock Mall was new, and people were moving this directionespecially people from northern states, he said. I saw that the church was going to take off. A building committee was formed almost as soon as the church was constituted, and a 225-seat sanctuary was finished in 1986. Although it seemed large at first, the congregation grew to fill the building, and a second service was added to accommodate a crowd that can grow by 10 percent with the influx of winter snowbirds, he said.

BY JIM CLARK EditorTo the casual observer and out-of-town traveler visiting Cracker Barrel on State Road 200 near Interstate 75, Rita Fitch may seem like just another dining room hostess at the popular chain. But when they learn more, they find out that, at age 95, shes the oldest Cracker Barrel employee in the country, and shes still going strong workinsg a full 35 hours a week. The store honored Rita on Thursday, Aug. 16, on the occasion of her 95th birthday (she doesnt look it), with a pair of cakes and a song, and several guests, many of whom dropped off cards, about two hours into her regular 2 to 9 p.m. shift. She makes the daily trek down busy State Road 200 to and from her home in Beverly Hills. She has been at Cracker Barrel since 2000, when she moved from Texas. She already had worked a couple of years there for the same company. Among the regulars she seated that afternoon were Bruce and Laurie Gregory, who live off West State Road 40. She really caters to veterans on Mondays. She supports our efforts, Bruce said. Indeed, Rita emphasized, Theyre very special to me, about the pair. She comes from a military family.

Massachusetts, but her parents were Canadians. One of her earliest memories, when she was about 3, was traveling on a boat from Nova Scotia to Maine. Doug Campbell, manager, said that Rita embodies the Cracker Barrel spirit of customer hospitality. Her dedicated work ethic for taking care of our guests is unsurpassed. Shes a big part of the Cracker Barrel family. And how does Rita feel about her work? Ive met a lot of special people. Ive gotten to know so many of them. A lot of those same people evidently feel the same way about her. Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com three services on Sunday morning in the original sanctuary, and the church added an 18,000 square-foot education/fellowship building in 1996. The southwest side of Ocala is now home to several Baptist churches, he said. The veteran pastor grew up in First Baptist Church in Pinetta, in Madison County. His mother died shortly after his birth, and his father, John Wesley, married Beulah Pulliam when Downing was three. His grandmother, Laura Downing, was a constant in the young boys life, he said. She made a big difference in my life. I am dedicating my retirement celebration to her, he said. Downings family insisted on church attendance, but he resisted becoming a Christian. I say I was a druggie. I was drug to church all my life, so when I got old enough, I didnt want anything to do with it, he said. The influence of high school girlfriend Deloris Wadkins led him to accept the Lord. When her family decided to move from Madison to Arkansas, the couple married to avoid separation. We decided that it was too far to go to date, so we got married, he said. Twenty-year-old John Downing and his 19-year-old bride settled in Madison where he worked for Winn Dixie for 10 years. During that time, they had two children, Ann and John Jr. He also felt Gods call to preach. The young family moved to Hintonville, Mississippi, where he was pastor of Seminary Baptist Church while studying at William Carey College in Hattiesburg. After graduation in 1975, he was tired of school, he said. The Downings moved back to their home state where he served three years at South Flomaton Baptist Church, and supplemented his salary by returning to the grocery business. In 1979, Downing was ready to commit to a seminary education. He moved his family to Ozona, Mississippi, where he was pastor of First Baptist Church. Downing commuted to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary while his wife worked at a local bank. She earned her PHT degree during that time Putting Hubby Through, he said. Only weeks after graduation in 1982, the family made its last moveto Ocala. Thirty years later, 69-year-old Downing describes College Road Baptist as a very gracious, loving and generous church. The Downings plan to stay in Ocala. Downing said his life goal, holding forth the Word of LifeJesus, still is foremost in his future plans. Rest and travel are planned for the rest of 2012, to visit the mountains in Missouri, daughter Ann Lawton and her husband Tom in Laredo, Texas, and son John Jr., his wife Misty and five grandchildren in the Atlanta area. Downing then hopes to serve as interim pastor and supply preacher and to participate in mission trips. His life verse sets the pattern, he said: holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ, I may have cause to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain (Phil. 2:16).

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. This is an 8-session training, which is available either as an afternoon class, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or as an evening class, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on professional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person even if its said in jest could delay or even derail your progress. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A colleague might try to goad you into saying or doing the wrong thing. Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your supporters stand with you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some difficult situations. And, of course, knowing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well-being of your ailing relationship. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youre also a wonderful host who can throw a really great party. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 24, 2012 The other day, I was watching a baseball game on television and a commercial came on. It was an attack ad by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) against Republican nominee Connie Mack. It was about 11 weeks before the November election. I think I nearly cried. You mean we have nearly three months of this to go. I was so glad to walk out to my mailbox last Tuesday, election day, and get nothing but a couple of bills (of course, you can throw the political ads away, you cant do the same with the bills). In the final days before the Aug. 14 primary, the nasty ads that came into the mailbox were a little bit disgusting. Two of the worst were in the race for school superintendent on the Republican side. One ad against Jackie Porter asked, Who IS pulling Jackie Porters strings? It showed a hand with a puppet with Porters face. Then on the flip side of the mailed oversized card it said, Certainly not Marion County Taxpapers, thats for sure! If she even bothers to show up, that is! It went on with various charges, some old. Then there was the one that said George Tomyn cant bring his A game for our kids. On the reverse side it gave him a D for things such as school performance while principal, running the school food service, the fact that he was supposedly passed up more than thirty times for promotion to principal, lsck of a private sector job and accountability. The two ads were put out by a group or groups with two different names, but the same address 235 E. Virginia St., in Tallahassee. The only superintendent candidate on the ballot who wasnt the subject of one of these attack ads was Wally Wagoner. The voters, however, sent a message. The attack ad victims finished 1-2, and Wagoner finished a distant third. So much for the effectiveness of the ads. The sheriffs candidates werent immune to the advertising, either. The same group from the same address in Tallahassee put out an anti-Chris Blair mailing that said Double-Dippin Chris Blair wants an even sweeter deal from taxpayers. It listed a payout, lifetime income and sheriffs salary. It had a picture of a little girl looking over a dropped ice cream cone with three scoops on the ground. Another mailing from Tallahassee, this one from 1700 N. Monroe St., took on Dan Kuhn, saying, A legacy of law enforcement failure and Theres a new sheriff coming to town. Dan Kuhn doesnt measure up. Well, there is a new sheriff coming, and probably his name is Dan Kuhn, and the voters thought he measured up. Two incumbent county commissioners were also the subject of attack ads, and one of them lost. Mike Amsden was accused of years of failed leadership that has cost taxpayers millions of $$. That one came from Citizens for Honesty in Government, 5400 S.W. College Road, Suite 302-152, Ocala. Amsden lost to David Moore. There was also an ad against Stan McClain that said, How has our Community Been Affected by Politician Stan McClains Failed Policies. This one came from Citizens for a Quality Life, 1824 N.E. 2nd Ave., Ocala. McClain won the primary. That was all in the final few days before the election. Many of the candidates had positive mailings and, while I cant stand getting all that stuff in the mail, at least it wasnt insulting to me as a voter. So here we go, getting ready for the general election. If you thought the local attacks were bad, now you get to throw in the federal people. My biggest decision is which garbage can to throw this material in. Are the political ads recyclable? I sure hope not.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Regardless of how you feel about U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, there was one thing that could be said for him. He was from Ocala and gave Marion County its own representative on Congress. The loss last week in the Republican Primary eliminated Stearns from contention and, because of redistricting, means that Marion County will no longer have a representative in Congress from here. That doesnt seem right for a county thats 15th in the state in population and third in area (behind Collier and Polk). A recent editorial in a Lakeland newspaper criticized the redistricting plan that split Polk County into four Congressional districts. But Polk has an incumbent representative who had no opposition. Marion is split among three Congressional districts, and none of the finalists is from our county. In District 3, Ted Yoho from Gainesville, who eliminated both Stearns and Steve Oelrich in the primary, will face Democrat J.R. Gaillot from Fleming Island in Clay County. In District 5, incumbent Corrine Brown, a Jacksonville Democrat, will face LeAnne Kolb, a Republican from Orange Park. In District 11, incumbent Republican Rick Nugent, a Brooksville Republican, will battle H. David Werder, who is from the town of Hudson way down in Pasco County. Notice, none of these candidates are from Marion County. In fact, none are even close to Marion County, except forYoho. The ironic thing is that the anti-Stearns forces may not have gained anything, especially if Yoho defeats Gaillot. Yoho is known as a Tea Party backer, and presumably has the same philosophy as Stearns did. Although stranger things have happened, its highly unlikely that Gaillot can take the victory, although hes probably thrilled not to have to face Stearns or Oelrich. Our county has been underrepresented in the Florida Senate, although we now have Charlie Stone. Now we wont have any hometown influence in Congress. With many people already feeling alienated by government, this only adds to the frustration. We need to find some strong local candidates to run for Congress in 2014. Its not to early to start thinking ahead. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY County loses in Stearns race Last minute attack ads: little effect LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BERNADETTE TOAN Special to the CitizenIt was February, 1978 in Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding areas, it had been snowing constantly all morning, but nothing, not even a blizzard would keep my husband and me from our appointment. We caught the last train from Wilmington to Boston. The storm was not expected to be so big. It covered the whole northeast and lasted thirty three hours. The extremely high winds piled up four feet of snow and thousands of homes lost power. But we were determined and made it to that very important appointment before all traffic would come to a standstill. This was the day we were sworn in as naturalized Americans and our two sons became American citizens that day as well. All applicants who were assigned to be sworn in as American citizens showed up and the judge commended us all for making it under such weather conditions. My husband Jean was born in Shanghai, China and I was born and raised in a town named Drogheda in the smallest county of Ireland on the east coast. Just prior to leaving Ireland we had moved to Dublin, a stepping stone. I look back to that eventful day of July 7, 1962, when my sister Verona and I left Ireland in search of a new life. We both gained valuable experience working in Dublin for about four years. Months of preparation proceeded, with visa applications, vaccinations, references etc and apprehensively letting our parents finally know our plans. Fortunately the quota for Irish citizens was generous back in the early sixties. Saying goodbye to our tearful parents at Dublin airport was tough, and assuring them our plan was to go for only a year was not of much consolation to them. Arriving at Idlewild Airport, as it was called in those days, for us coming from the greens of home stepping off the plane into the chrome and concrete fairyland of vast parking lots and wide open spaces was quite something! At the usual customary immigration, customs etc. we found the people we encountered were helpful and friendly to newcomers. Our older brother Frank had already immigrated to The United States and his Irish friends helped us settle into life in Jackson Heights, Queens. We found an affordable basement apartment, sharing with an Irish girl friend of my brothers, and went job hunting. Verona found a job as secretary in an electrical engineering office, a job that lasted quite a while, and I applied for and was accepted as a reservationist with Pan American Airways, about the time when computers were introduced. This company of course is now gone with the proverbial wind. Both Verona and I quickly got used to our daily routine of commuting, catching crowded buses to the subway. A whole new experience was subway travel to Manhattan, crowded, hanging on to straps, all jammed together, rarely finding a seat. We had to adjust to all this rush and hurry after our easier, much less pressured life in Dublin! READER OPINIONS INVITED Celebrating 50 years in the United States PLEASESEETOAN PAGE9 Voters deserve the truthThe president is being blamed for political ads that depict Romney as a heartless candidate who would shove grandma off a cliff and also introducing vouchers for seniors to purchase their health benefits on the open market. Romney is accusing the president of taking 716 billion dollars out of the Medicare system and using this money to shore up Obamacare, which, by the wa,y is despised by any politician with an R after his name. Of course both of these accusations are wrong because the real truth is that these lies and distortions are the results of the Super Pacs gone wild. These Super Pacs were allowed by the Supreme Courts decision to allow hundreds of millions of dollars to be injected into the political campaigns on all levels. If you remember correctly, these Supremes have lifetime appointments and they can impose their will with their decisions on all issues that reach their court. This particular issue on money being injected secretly into political campaigns may possible be their worst decision of all time. Not knowing where this money comes from is only part of the problem. The biggest issue is influencing elections that decide the direction our country is heading politically.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Each year we saved enough to go back to Dublin to spend time with our parents and family, but the time came for us to decide we would make the U.S our future home. I firmly believe and am greatly impressed that Americans have a wonderful capacity to welcome newcomers, showing real interest in new arrivals like us, applying for jobs. We did not have impressive references or experience, but companies were willing to give us a chance based on how we presented ourselves, openly and honestly .This was encouraging when Pan American Airways hired me in Reservations with no past airline experience. Later they upgraded me to Hotel Reservations, earning my 5 year pin eventually. Around this time I met my husband Jean, and about a year or so later married in February 1966. He worked at G.T.E, with the international division of his company, with projects in different countries, the first one was Hong Kong BCC, where our two sons were born, Patrick in 1967, and Michel in 1969.They were British subjects, by birth, and this was changed of course subsequently at Naturalization. Other projects overseas opened doors to periods of wonderful experiences and education for me, and for our family. Jean, as a young teenager back in Shanghai China had a very definite desire to come to the U.S., eventually made it here in 1955, completed his education and embraced this country just as my sister and I did. Now we look back. Fifty years this past July 7 marked the 50th anniversary of that wonderful eventful day, we proudly see as our Golden Anniversary Day and certainly marked it well with much rejoicing and celebration! Reflection: Fifty Years in this wonderful U.S.A has given us much, a new life with opportunities to grow and blend into the Melting Pot that this country is. What would our lives have been like had we never left Ireland? Hard to imagine, but God who is in charge of all things, has the answer. And we praise Him. Visiting Ireland in October 2010 was the highlight of the year for us both, enjoying every minute of it, reconnecting with family and friends. Today Verona and I are proud of our Irish heritage and we like to think our blend of American and Irish life is the perfect one! TOANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion results. What really is scary is that no one knows where this money comes from, it could be groups of Americans, the Chinese, the Russians or just people who want to see our country fail. Voters deserve the truth and the Supreme Court should admit that they made a mistake with these recent decisions that could and presently is destroying our country. Wake up Supremes, we can see it, why cant you? Jerry Segovis OcalaI dont think he could do it without me!Now theres a statement that shows how strong a man can not be. In a TV interview, Ann Romney stated, referring to Mitt Romney, we are partners, true partners in every sense of the way. I dont think he could do it without me. I dont think he could. Wow, what a statement by a wife whose husband is running for president, or should I say habitual runner for president. She also said that she would not do it again after the 2008 election where John McCain defeated Romney in the primary. Now, I ask you, whos the captain of the Romney ship? It sure doesnt sound like Mitt Romney. Between his wife, the Mormon church, poor tax situation, and Paul Ryan, I dont see much on the plus side for Romney. Having lived through presidents from Hoover on, I dont think Ive ever heard a wife say her husband couldnt do it without her. Sure, weve had strong first ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama, but these husbands ran for the office, not their wives. If I must say, and we do get a package deal here, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama, far from it. In her interview she seemed angry, bitter, not very nice and not in control of herself. Now this is a person who would have to interact with the American people, and even world leaders, while at her husbands side. Not only Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan scare me but Anne Romney as well. She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Maybe its because the Romneys stated they would gave 10 percent to charities but primarily the Mormon church, and if they released accurate tax reports, they would be out more money. This tax situation has become a big bugaboo for candidates, Republicans in particular. Michael Dukakis, stated and its been confirmed by other Massachusetts residents, that Romney really was a poor governor. Dukakis released six years of his income tax filings, but those who dont or wont release their tax returns, surely must have something to hide, say in the Cayman Islands. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The only thing the Republicans can rant on is the Obama health care law, yes, its the law. Senior citizens can get free hospice care under the Obama plan, through Medicaid, when they cant get it now as they have to pay for it. Ah, what a deceiving way the Republicans would like to lead the public down the primrose (thorny) path. One thing is for sure, all of us senior citizens and baby boomers had better send Romney back home, whichever state he calls home now. Who knows? Frankly, Romney scares me more than George W. Bush did and thats really, really scary. Bill Ford Oak Run Use common sense The order to have certain illegals being able to qualify for a drivers license, Social Security card, work permit, etc. is insane. Thankfully, we have a governor in Arizona who says No!. It would be nice if all governors would follow her example. We have no way of knowing exactly when the illegals got here or even proof of their age. What form of legal identification would they have? I guess we are just to take their word for it. (That is a little bit of sarcasm). Liberals still dont know the meaning of illegals, they are just interested in getting their vote, which is basically guaranteed in the future. Our media should constantly be putting factual information out that tells just how much these illegals are costing us in both dollars and in crime statistics. Knowing these numbers should put a stop to so many wanting them here in America. Illegal means they have no right to be here, period! Obama brags on his health care plan hoping that seniors are not smart enough to realize that taking $700 billion out of Medicare will end up costing us more in premiums and limit our benefits. Common sense should tell you this will happen. Others will be getting coverage that we seniors end up paying for. There is no way seniors will benefit by his being in office four more years, and if you dont realize this fact, we are in serious trouble and deserve what we get. We are now sixteen trillion dollars in debt a five trillion increase in less than four years under his watch. We cant survive without drastically cutting this debt! If we re-elect him, we may increase our debt to twenty trillion over the next four years to pay for all of his programs. Where do you think the money will come from? That should make our children and grandchildren very proud of us for making America the next Greece by 2016. The simple truth: If we did away with the tax breaks for the so called 1 percent, it wouldnt make a dent in our PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE10 LAST LETTERS FROM ATTU By Mary Breu Someone once said that heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Nowhere is that more true than in the story of Etta Jones, a nurse and school teacher who found romantic love and her place in the world in the wilds of Alaska, who survived the Japanese invasion of her last teaching post in Attu and four years in a Japanese prison before being rescued by General MacArthurs men. It all began in Pittsburgh when co-workers began talking to her sister Marie about teaching opportunities in Alaska. The idea intrigued her. But in the 1920s a single woman didnt travel 4,000 miles alone and certainly not to a place like the Alaskan interior. So she persuaded her sister Etta, who was also single, to go along with her. Etta had agreed on the condition that she would stay only for a year. But something magical happened that very first day in the little Athabascan village: To me, that first night in our new home was enchantment itself. I hung out the bedroom window, listening to the silence, which was so great it beat incessantly on the ears. It was living stillness. Had Etta not been a prolific letter writer of eastbound mail filled with sparkle and gusto, this amazing story would have been lost to readers. Not long after arriving in Alaska Marie and Etta were invited to dinner and one of the guests was Foster Jones, a prospector from Ohio. The two fell in love and were married a short time later. Ironically, it was Marie who found Alaska a cultural wasteland and returned to the states within the year. Etta took over Maries teaching post and for the next 18 years she and Foster taught English and math in isolated villages like Alutiq, Yupik and Aleut Native villages. During that time Foster became an item in Alaskan history as one of the mushers who carried the diphtheria serum into Nome during the January 1925 epidemic in 60-below weather. Etta and Foster never tried to change the people with whom they lived because they always respected their worth and dignity. In 1941 the Alaska Indian Service decided to open a school in Attu and the couple was hired to operate it. Friends were concerned for their safety because Attu was in Japans backyard. But the pair was fearless. The Japanese did invade the tiny island and Etta was captured and sent to Japan for the duration of the war. Although she accepted speaking engagements once back in the states, Jones would never talk about her captivity because it was too painful a subject. Thanks to her grandniece Mary Breu we have the completed picture of those years. This is a very fine read.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com deficit, paying for less than nine days. For all who have their hand out for other peoples money, what will you do for the other 356 days? Just where do you think the money is going to be coming from? Keep in mind that government has no money, its our tax money. This means we have no choice but to make a huge cut in spending. Common sense tells us that we should be more interested in our national debt and how our tax dollars are being spent than we are in how Romney spends his own money. It appears that is all the Obama ads have to talk about. Lets start asking more about Obamas history including how he wants to spend our money. The next few months should prove very interesting if the media would dare to do that. May God continue blessing America! Wayne Rackley OcalaBlatantly evilA sad political ad on television is the women defending their right to kill their unborn babies. They support Planned Parenthood and want free contraception. How can legalized abortion be a good thing when one of the two participating parties ends up dead? (1,212,400 abortions in 2011) Then, the voice-over says Im Barack Obama and I support this message. Democrats want to end to private gun ownership, call for amnesty for illegal aliens, support of the United Nations, the Law of the Sea Treaty, Small Arms Treaty, the North American Union and many programs that destroy our constitutional sovereignty replacing it with a one world government. They also want to destroy the coal industry, block the Keystone Pipe Line and prevent offshore drilling, removing sources of energy independence. The Democrats want taxpayers to pay interest on student loans, control the population through universal health care, defy the laws of nature by supporting gay marriage, use bail-out dollars to pump up the unions, give massive loans to friends in the solar business and continue to pass more regulations that stifle small business. The Democrats promote class warfare, claiming the rich must pay their fair share while 47 percent of the population pays no income tax. The Democrats definition of shovel ready jobs is to shovel out more welfare dollars at taxpayers expense, pandering to the recipients, to buy their votes. It is amazing that local Democrat politicians can associate themselves with a political party that is so blatantly evil. Harold Imgrund OcalaGuns kill peopleGuns kill people. Wow! Now there is a news flash. Our stupid ignorant Founding Fathers did not know that fact, when they wrote the 2nd amendment. Too bad they did not have a genius around to enlighten them, or is it a wing-nut? Does anyone doubt our Founding Fathers did not know what they were doing? That guns kill people? That was not the reason they passed the 2nd amendment, and any fool knows this. When one side has a gun, one side rules. When both sides have a gun, both sides have a chance. The Founding Fathers were well read, knowledgeable about revolutions, and revolutionary tactics, and tyrannical governments. They ran away from one. They fought a war to rid themselves of that government. They knew history repeats itself, and they gave us the 2nd amendment to cope with tyranny should it rear its ugly head again. Remember? Protection from tyrannical government is the reason for the 2nd amendment. There are always some people who will abuse everything. So, does that mean we have to surrender our 2nd amendment right, or do we deal with those who abuse gun use? Get tough with criminals. Stop coddling them. Make them see crime does not pay. Throwing out the 2nd amendment with the bath water is not an answer. Common sense, common sense? What ever happened to common sense?? D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Just when you think life cant get more complicated, it does. Personally, I work very hard trying to keep my life as simple as possible. And I must say I do not get very much help on this part, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the Bath and Body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruity-tooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone. I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Religion Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com School days, school days, good, old Golden Rule days. They started last Monday. Kids, with their backpacks and lunches, are on those big yellow vehicles. Its important for everyone to watch out for these buses stopping and starting, as well as for children walking along roads and crossing streets. High school can be difficult, as one dropout related to me. In English class, I went through a bad spell, and I when I was presented with oral quizzes in vocabulary, fear took the words out of my mouth. Math class did a number on me. As the term progressed, I became number and number. My angles were never right. They were never acute and always obtuse. I couldnt even add, so I turned out to be a total failure. In History class, I had no remembrance of things past because I couldnt see any future in studying the subject. On tests, I made one error for each era. I experienced vial reactions to Chemistry. I had no formula for success, so I couldnt master the elements of the subject and couldnt come up with any solutions. In Home Economics my cooking just didnt pan out, my cakes and pies were half-baked, and, ultimately, my goose was cooked. I failed Art because the subject didnt suit my pallet, so I drew a blank. In foreign language classes, I got lost in translation. I wasnt a Latin lover, and the teacher had to pardon my French because it was all Greek to me. I went out for the School Orchestra, but I was so high-strung and keyed up that I didnt know how to conduct myself. I fiddled around so much that the teacher wouldnt let me play even second fiddle. My failure was noteworthy, and my flatter E got me nowhere. In Drama class I couldnt get by the first stage of the course and I never got my act together. I tried being a stagehand, but I soon needed a change of scenery. Wood Shop was boring, and I couldnt do the drill. The subject went against my grain, so I didnt make the cut. In Computer Science, I developed a terminal illness. I lost my memory and my drive. I was all charged up to take Electric Shop, but I had a negative experience in that class. The light bulb above my head never lit up. I wasnt very bright, and I wasnt able to stay current. The teacher found my performance to be shocking and re-volting; but never electrifying, so he grounded me. In Drivers Ed., I thought I was in the drivers seat. I was placed in an accelerated course, but I was all over the road. I thought I got bad brakes, but the instructor told me I was shiftless, no good in the clutch, and unable to get it in gear. In Phys. Ed. I just wasnt fit for the class, and I wasnt up to speed. I couldnt learn the ropes, but I did climb the walls. I didnt shape up, so I was shipped out.Short subjectsSafety experts say school bus passengers should be belted. Grandmother learned to read in gramma school. I went to school to become a wit, only got halfway through. Carpenter students go to boarding school. When I went to school I was so smart my teacher was in my class for three years.A matter of principalOn the first day of high school, the new principal heard a terrible commotion coming from a classroom. He rushed in and spotted one young man, much taller than the others, who was making the most noise. He seized him, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there. Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for an hour about good behavior. When he was finished, he said, Now, are there any questions? One girl stood up timidly and said, Please, sir, may we have our teacher back?Say What?An English teacher announced to the class, There are two words I dont allow in my class. One is gross and the other is cool. From the back of the room a voice called out, So, what are the words? Im off to go looking for those two words. Maybe Ill find them by next week.

Another record for the Cherrywood Summer Fest was set on Aug. 18. Two hundred and fifty residents came out to enjoy a beautiful Florida evening; a delicious meal and the fantastic entertainment of Kenny Jackson. Tender and juicy pulled pork sandwiches with beans and potato salad was served up along with lemonade and iced tea. All of the guests were served in a surprisingly fast and orderly fashion which was only made possible by the excellent volunteer staff members. Ice Cream topped off the meal for dessert including Klondike Bars. Local favorite DJ Kenny Jackson provided the entertainment with gusto and style that even surpassed his last appearance here at Cherrywood. Kenny has a terrific singing voice and he started the evening off with popular country songs; some old standards and some humorous novelty tunes. He then played his wide variety of songs to the delight of all while interspersing his own witty sense of humor. The dance floor was crowded with couples moving to the upbeat songs and swaying gracefully to the romantic melodies. There was an abundance of smiles on the faces of those who danced the night away. Raffle ticket winners came bouncing up to the stage where Geri, Fred and Rich gave out the prizes. Applause was plentiful for the winners of the 50/50 drawings; Christine Archer; Marti Duesel; Christl Giovanniello and Fred OHern as well as for Gift Card winner Marie Ustianowski. We would be totally remiss if we didnt thank those who helped put this great night together. First, Cherrywood Property Management paid for the evening so it was free to all the residents. Logistical support from CPM was provided by Jim, Geri, Justin and Fred; all of whom did a great job. Second, the Social Committee has to be complimented on getting everyone through the food line with a fantastic hot meal in such a speedy fashion. (45 minutes total time to serve 250 residents) Taking care of the kitchen duties were Jay OHern, Beverly Idone, SanDee Spencer, Mick and Donna James. Dick Francis handled the drinks; Marty Duesel directed everyone through the line and Nancy Archer, Rich and Monica Becotte assisted with the 50/50 drawings. Congratulations to these volunteers for a job well done. Last but not least, thanks to our residents who came out; enjoyed friends and neighbors and set a new attendance record. What a great summer its been with more to come. Bowlers MeetingThe Cherrywood Bowling League will meet on Monday, Aug. 27 at 12:30 p.m. in the clubhouse to provide information on this years league play at Galaxy Lanes. Details of the upcoming season will be discussed; teams registered and new bowlers signed up. There are openings for regular bowlers and substitute positions also so all interested persons should plan to attend. Fran Hall, Secretary for the league, will be there to answer questions and provide details for everyone. Come to the meeting and then get ready for a season of fun.Veterans Club meeting On Thursday, Sept. 6, the Veterans Club returns to its regular meeting schedule. At 2 p.m. the meeting will be called to order and our guest speaker will discuss veterans burial benefits and options. Immediately following the presentation, other items on the agenda such as the food drive for Ritz House; fund raising; and similar important matters will be discussed. Club President Bill Mahar and the board strongly encourage all veterans to come to this meeting. If you are not yet a member of the club, this would be an excellent opportunity to join and become eligible for the all the benefits that membership brings. As all veterans know, just because our military service has ended does not mean an end to our service. Our brothers and sisters need our help and for those who can no longer speak; they and their families need our voices. Join your fellow vets on Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. Happy hour follows the meeting.Memorial CommitteeThe Cherrywood Veterans Club Memorial Committee needs a few more volunteers. This compassionate group assists the family of a veteran when they want to hold a reception in the clubhouse following funeral services. The committee does such things as decorating; setting up refreshments provided by the family and handles other details as needed. The committee also insures that the deceased veterans name is placed on the memorial plaque in the clubhouse. If you would like to assist in this endeavor, contact Ruth Hurley or your humble correspondent at urperssec@yahoo.com and we will make sure your name is added to the contact list.AARP Driving ClassTwo Senior Safe Driving classes are scheduled for November at Cherrywood. Class I will be held on the 12th and 15th and Class II will be on the 26th & 29th. These morning classes are free to all Cherrywood Veterans Club members. For members of AARP the cost is $12 and for non-members, $14. There are two big benefits to taking this class. First, it enhances your safety and might well save your life or the life of a loved one.

Here is the remaining copy that was left out.) Paul was a 32nd degree Mason; a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club; and a war hero. Avis, is a member of National Association of Clock and Watch Collectors of America; Kenniller Historical Society in Maine; North Central Florida Polio Support Group; the Southwest Christian Church and associate member of Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge. This has been just a Readers Digest sketch of Avis and Pauls life together. The adventures the two of them shared both when they were apart and when they were together would fill far more pages than I have room for in this article. I thought it was important however that these two members of that Greatest Generation be recognized for their special story and for what they gave to our nation. As I began, originally, I planned to interview both Paul and Avis. Because of his illness, that was not possible and we postponed the appointment. Perhaps there is a message in this to all of us. Lets not pass up any opportunity to share our respect; our care or our stories with one another. Hug your partner and your family often; laugh at yourself and love your neighbor because you dont know how long you have or what your neighbor has been through. We are grateful to Avis and Paul for their service; their sacrifices and their inspiration. From Your ReporterIf you have any ideas; suggestions or information that you would like to see in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec @yahoo.com. Your opinion counts. Im always happy to hear from our readers.

CERT meeting successOn Wednesday morning, Aug. 15, more than 20 residents were treated to coffee; delicious pastries and a great presentation of the CD Your Survival. David Siegel, Assistant Team Leader for Cherrywood CERT was the moderator of the program and did a great job of providing a vast array of information to those who attended. Bob Arnot, expert in all things related to natural disasters starred in the CD which is a complete guide for disaster planning and recovery. Because of time constraints David edited some of the material but important sections on tornados; hurricanes and flooding were covered extensively. Items of importance included keeping your vehicle in good running order in case of evacuation; keeping important documents safe and water proofed; having a bug out kit; emergency communications; and a list of important supplies to have on hand were just some of the topics. Many more subjects were covered in depth and were very helpful. For those of you who missed this important meeting, another one may be held in the near future if interest is expressed. Contact Geri if you would like to see another such class by our excellently trained CERT Team. We cant emphasize enough the importance of emergency planning and our CERT team helped our residents learn the hows and whys of preparedness. We are grateful to Dave and his team for the excellent work they are doing. Accordion Club On Wednesday, Aug. 22, join our Accordion Club in the clubhouse for some rip roaring fun as the gang brings out their instruments and jams for the entertainment of all.

This night of live and lively entertainment and pure enjoyment is totally free, so bring your favorite beverage and bring your neighbor and friends. Theres nothing like the Accordion Club at Cherrywood. Notes to singers Each Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. the Cherrywood Songbirds assemble in the clubhouse and rehearse new songs to take on tour. Our Songbirds travel to many venues including various assisted living facilities and other complexes. Their songs brighten and cheer everyone who hears this dedicated group and sees them perform. There is always room for new voices to be heard in this choir, especially male voices to compliment the ladies. If youve ever sung Karaoke; sung in a church choir or even sung in the shower, come and try out for this uniquely talented group. (Note to shower singers; wear clothes to this event.) We are proud of our Songbirds and all the good they do in the community.Crafters wantedOur Fall Craft Show is coming to the clubhouse of Cherrywood on Oct. 13. The timing couldnt be better because there are no other craft shows planned for that time and it is early enough to get packages out of state in time for the holidays.

The set under construction is for The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas. The show starts on Sept. 6 and runs until Sept. 30. For ticket infomation on any show and other theatre activities contact the box office at 352-236-2274 or visit their web site www.ocalacivictheatre.com 24 hours a day. Please call also if you would like to volunteer your services in any of several areas of the theatre operations. Above, Tom Mullen is attaching the finish boards to the sides of the stairwell with square head screws and a cordless screw gun. Screws are used so the sets can be struck easily when the shows run is finished. The 4x8 pieces are cut to the approximate size, then screwed to the stairwell. After being attached the pieces are cut to the correct size with a router. The stairwell was recycled from a previous set. It was modified for this set and a twin built from scratch. Reusing and the resizing the stock is an important factor in keeping the costs of the theatre operation down as well as keeping material out of the waste stream. Above, left, Paul Olsen is scribing a cutting line for the curved handrails using a piece of 2x4 for a guide. All 32 pieces for the hand rail are cut from 4x8 pieces of 3/4 plywood with a jig saw. After being attached to the stairwell they are doubled up and sanded with a belt sander for a smooth finish. Above, right, Ron Sudhof is using a vertical sander to smooth the small pieces he is making for the set.

I thought it was important however that these two members of that Greatest Generation be recognized for their special story and for what they gave to our nation. As I began, originally, I planned to interview both Paul and Avis. Because of his illness, that was not possible and we postponed the appointment. Perhaps there is a message in this to all of us. Lets not pass up any opportunity to share our respect; our care or our stories with one another. Hug your partner and your family often; laugh at yourself and love your neighbor because you dont know how long you have or what your neighbor has been through. We are grateful to Avis and Paul for their service; their sacrifices and their inspiration.

CERT meeting successOn Wednesday morning, Aug. 15, more than 20 residents were treated to coffee; delicious pastries and a great presentation of the CD Your Survival. David Siegel, Assistant Team Leader for Cherrywood CERT was the moderator of the program and did a great job of providing a vast array of information to those who attended. Bob Arnot, expert in all things related to natural disasters starred in the CD which is a complete guide for disaster planning and recovery. Because of time constraints David edited some of the material but important sections on tornados; hurricanes and flooding were covered extensively. Items of importance included keeping your vehicle in good running order in case of evacuation; keeping important documents safe and water proofed; having a bug out kit; emergency communications; and a list of important supplies to have on hand were just some of the topics. Many more subjects were covered in depth and were very helpful. For those of you who missed this important meeting, another one may be held in the near future if interest is expressed. Contact Geri if you would like to see another such class by our excellently trained CERT Team. We cant emphasize enough the importance of emergency planning and our CERT team helped our residents learn the hows and whys of preparedness. We are grateful to Dave and his team for the excellent work they are doing. Accordion Club On Wednesday, Aug. 22, join our Accordion Club in the clubhouse for some rip roaring fun as the gang brings out their instruments and jams for the entertainment of all.

If youve ever sung Karaoke; sung in a church choir or even sung in the shower, come and try out for this uniquely talented group. (Note to shower singers; wear clothes to this event.) We are proud of our Songbirds and all the good they do in the community.Crafters wantedOur Fall Craft Show is coming to the clubhouse of Cherrywood on Oct. 13.

The set under construction is for The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas. The show starts on Sept. 6 and runs until Sept. 30. For ticket infomation on any show and other theatre activities contact the box office at 352-236-2274 or visit their web site www.ocalacivictheatre.com 24 hours a day. Please call also if you would like to volunteer your services in any of several areas of the theatre operations. Above, Tom Mullen is attaching the finish boards to the sides of the stairwell with square head screws and a cordless screw gun. Screws are used so the sets can be struck easily when the shows run is finished. The 4x8 pieces are cut to the approximate size, then screwed to the stairwell. After being attached the pieces are cut to the correct size with a router. The stairwell was recycled from a previous set. It was modified for this set and a twin built from scratch. Reusing and the resizing the stock is an important factor in keeping the costs of the theatre operation down as well as keeping material out of the waste stream. Above, left, Paul Olsen is scribing a cutting line for the curved handrails using a piece of 2x4 for a guide. All 32 pieces for the hand rail are cut from 4x8 pieces of 3/4 plywood with a jig saw. After being attached to the stairwell they are doubled up and sanded with a belt sander for a smooth finish. Above, right, Ron Sudhof is using a vertical sander to smooth the small pieces he is making for the set.

Another record for the Cherrywood Summer Fest was set on Aug. 18. Two hundred and fifty residents came out to enjoy a beautiful Florida evening; a delicious meal and the fantastic entertainment of Kenny Jackson. Tender and juicy pulled pork sandwiches with beans and potato salad was served up along with lemonade and iced tea. All of the guests were served in a surprisingly fast and orderly fashion which was only made possible by the excellent volunteer staff members. Ice Cream topped off the meal for dessert including Klondike Bars. Local favorite DJ Kenny Jackson provided the entertainment with gusto and style that even surpassed his last appearance here at Cherrywood. Kenny has a terrific singing voice and he started the evening off with popular country songs; some old standards and some humorous novelty tunes. He then played his wide variety of songs to the delight of all while interspersing his own witty sense of humor. The dance floor was crowded with couples moving to the upbeat songs and swaying gracefully to the romantic melodies. There was an abundance of smiles on the faces of those who danced the night away. Raffle ticket winners came bouncing up to the stage where Geri, Fred and Rich gave out the prizes. Applause was plentiful for the winners of the 50/50 drawings; Christine Archer; Marti Duesel; Christl Giovanniello and Fred OHern as well as for Gift Card winner Marie Ustianowski. We would be totally remiss if we didnt thank those who helped put this great night together. First, Cherrywood Property Management paid for the evening so it was free to all the residents. Logistical support from CPM was provided by Jim, Geri, Justin and Fred; all of whom did a great job. Second, the Social Committee has to be complimented on getting everyone through the food line with a fantastic hot meal in such a speedy fashion. (45 minutes total time to serve 250 residents) Taking care of the kitchen duties were Jay OHern, Beverly Idone, SanDee Spencer, Mick and Donna James. Dick Francis handled the drinks; Marty Duesel directed everyone through the line and Nancy Archer, Rich and Monica Becotte assisted with the 50/50 drawings. Congratulations to these volunteers for a job well done. Last but not least, thanks to our residents who came out; enjoyed friends and neighbors and set a new attendance record. What a great summer its been with more to come. Bowlers MeetingThe Cherrywood Bowling League will meet on Monday, Aug. 27 at 12:30 p.m. in the clubhouse to provide information on this years league play at Galaxy Lanes. Details of the upcoming season will be discussed; teams registered and new bowlers signed up. There are openings for regular bowlers and substitute positions also so all interested persons should plan to attend. Fran Hall, Secretary for the league, will be there to answer questions and provide details for everyone. Come to the meeting and then get ready for a season of fun.Veterans Club meeting On Thursday, Sept. 6, the Veterans Club returns to its regular meeting schedule. At 2 p.m. the meeting will be called to order and our guest speaker will discuss veterans burial benefits and options. Immediately following the presentation, other items on the agenda such as the food drive for Ritz House; fund raising; and similar important matters will be discussed. Club President Bill Mahar and the board strongly encourage all veterans to come to this meeting. If you are not yet a member of the club, this would be an excellent opportunity to join and become eligible for the all the benefits that membership brings. As all veterans know, just because our military service has ended does not mean an end to our service. Our brothers and sisters need our help and for those who can no longer speak; they and their families need our voices. Join your fellow vets on Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. Happy hour follows the meeting.Memorial CommitteeThe Cherrywood Veterans Club Memorial Committee needs a few more volunteers. This compassionate group assists the family of a veteran when they want to hold a reception in the clubhouse following funeral services. The committee does such things as decorating; setting up refreshments provided by the family and handles other details as needed. The committee also insures that the deceased veterans name is placed on the memorial plaque in the clubhouse. If you would like to assist in this endeavor, contact Ruth Hurley or your humble correspondent at urperssec@yahoo.com and we will make sure your name is added to the contact list.AARP Driving ClassTwo Senior Safe Driving classes are scheduled for November at Cherrywood.

Religion Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com School days, school days, good, old Golden Rule days. They started last Monday. Kids, with their backpacks and lunches, are on those big yellow vehicles. Its important for everyone to watch out for these buses stopping and starting, as well as for children walking along roads and crossing streets. High school can be difficult, as one dropout related to me. In English class, I went through a bad spell, and I when I was presented with oral quizzes in vocabulary, fear took the words out of my mouth. Math class did a number on me. As the term progressed, I became number and number. My angles were never right. They were never acute and always obtuse. I couldnt even add, so I turned out to be a total failure. In History class, I had no remembrance of things past because I couldnt see any future in studying the subject. On tests, I made one error for each era. I experienced vial reactions to Chemistry. I had no formula for success, so I couldnt master the elements of the subject and couldnt come up with any solutions. In Home Economics my cooking just didnt pan out, my cakes and pies were half-baked, and, ultimately, my goose was cooked. I failed Art because the subject didnt suit my pallet, so I drew a blank. In foreign language classes, I got lost in translation. I wasnt a Latin lover, and the teacher had to pardon my French because it was all Greek to me. I went out for the School Orchestra, but I was so high-strung and keyed up that I didnt know how to conduct myself. I fiddled around so much that the teacher wouldnt let me play even second fiddle. My failure was noteworthy, and my flatter E got me nowhere. In Drama class I couldnt get by the first stage of the course and I never got my act together. I tried being a stagehand, but I soon needed a change of scenery. Wood Shop was boring, and I couldnt do the drill. The subject went against my grain, so I didnt make the cut. In Computer Science, I developed a terminal illness. I lost my memory and my drive. I was all charged up to take Electric Shop, but I had a negative experience in that class. The light bulb above my head never lit up. I wasnt very bright, and I wasnt able to stay current. The teacher found my performance to be shocking and re-volting; but never electrifying, so he grounded me. In Drivers Ed., I thought I was in the drivers seat. I was placed in an accelerated course, but I was all over the road. I thought I got bad brakes, but the instructor told me I was shiftless, no good in the clutch, and unable to get it in gear. In Phys. Ed. I just wasnt fit for the class, and I wasnt up to speed. I couldnt learn the ropes, but I did climb the walls. I didnt shape up, so I was shipped out.Short subjectsSafety experts say school bus passengers should be belted. Grandmother learned to read in gramma school. I went to school to become a wit, only got halfway through. Carpenter students go to boarding school. When I went to school I was so smart my teacher was in my class for three years.A matter of principalOn the first day of high school, the new principal heard a terrible commotion coming from a classroom. He rushed in and spotted one young man, much taller than the others, who was making the most noise. He seized him, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there. Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for an hour about good behavior. When he was finished, he said, Now, are there any questions? One girl stood up timidly and said, Please, sir, may we have our teacher back?Say What?An English teacher announced to the class, There are two words I dont allow in my class. One is gross and the other is cool. From the back of the room a voice called out, So, what are the words? Im off to go looking for those two words. Maybe Ill find them by next week.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com deficit, paying for less than nine days. For all who have their hand out for other peoples money, what will you do for the other 356 days? Just where do you think the money is going to be coming from? Keep in mind that government has no money, its our tax money. This means we have no choice but to make a huge cut in spending. Common sense tells us that we should be more interested in our national debt and how our tax dollars are being spent than we are in how Romney spends his own money. It appears that is all the Obama ads have to talk about. Lets start asking more about Obamas history including how he wants to spend our money. The next few months should prove very interesting if the media would dare to do that. May God continue blessing America! Wayne Rackley OcalaBlatantly evilA sad political ad on television is the women defending their right to kill their unborn babies. They support Planned Parenthood and want free contraception. How can legalized abortion be a good thing when one of the two participating parties ends up dead? (1,212,400 abortions in 2011) Then, the voice-over says Im Barack Obama and I support this message. Democrats want to end to private gun ownership, call for amnesty for illegal aliens, support of the United Nations, the Law of the Sea Treaty, Small Arms Treaty, the North American Union and many programs that destroy our constitutional sovereignty replacing it with a one world government. They also want to destroy the coal industry, block the Keystone Pipe Line and prevent offshore drilling, removing sources of energy independence. The Democrats want taxpayers to pay interest on student loans, control the population through universal health care, defy the laws of nature by supporting gay marriage, use bail-out dollars to pump up the unions, give massive loans to friends in the solar business and continue to pass more regulations that stifle small business. The Democrats promote class warfare, claiming the rich must pay their fair share while 47 percent of the population pays no income tax. The Democrats definition of shovel ready jobs is to shovel out more welfare dollars at taxpayers expense, pandering to the recipients, to buy their votes. It is amazing that local Democrat politicians can associate themselves with a political party that is so blatantly evil. Harold Imgrund OcalaGuns kill peopleGuns kill people. Wow! Now there is a news flash. Our stupid ignorant Founding Fathers did not know that fact, when they wrote the 2nd amendment. Too bad they did not have a genius around to enlighten them, or is it a wing-nut? Does anyone doubt our Founding Fathers did not know what they were doing? That guns kill people? That was not the reason they passed the 2nd amendment, and any fool knows this. When one side has a gun, one side rules. When both sides have a gun, both sides have a chance. The Founding Fathers were well read, knowledgeable about revolutions, and revolutionary tactics, and tyrannical governments. They ran away from one. They fought a war to rid themselves of that government. They knew history repeats itself, and they gave us the 2nd amendment to cope with tyranny should it rear its ugly head again. Remember? Protection from tyrannical government is the reason for the 2nd amendment. There are always some people who will abuse everything. So, does that mean we have to surrender our 2nd amendment right, or do we deal with those who abuse gun use? Get tough with criminals. Stop coddling them. Make them see crime does not pay. Throwing out the 2nd amendment with the bath water is not an answer. Common sense, common sense? What ever happened to common sense?? D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Just when you think life cant get more complicated, it does. Personally, I work very hard trying to keep my life as simple as possible. And I must say I do not get very much help on this part, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the Bath and Body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruity-tooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone. I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Each year we saved enough to go back to Dublin to spend time with our parents and family, but the time came for us to decide we would make the U.S our future home. I firmly believe and am greatly impressed that Americans have a wonderful capacity to welcome newcomers, showing real interest in new arrivals like us, applying for jobs. We did not have impressive references or experience, but companies were willing to give us a chance based on how we presented ourselves, openly and honestly .This was encouraging when Pan American Airways hired me in Reservations with no past airline experience. Later they upgraded me to Hotel Reservations, earning my 5 year pin eventually. Around this time I met my husband Jean, and about a year or so later married in February 1966. He worked at G.T.E, with the international division of his company, with projects in different countries, the first one was Hong Kong BCC, where our two sons were born, Patrick in 1967, and Michel in 1969.They were British subjects, by birth, and this was changed of course subsequently at Naturalization. Other projects overseas opened doors to periods of wonderful experiences and education for me, and for our family. Jean, as a young teenager back in Shanghai China had a very definite desire to come to the U.S., eventually made it here in 1955, completed his education and embraced this country just as my sister and I did. Now we look back. Fifty years this past July 7 marked the 50th anniversary of that wonderful eventful day, we proudly see as our Golden Anniversary Day and certainly marked it well with much rejoicing and celebration! Reflection: Fifty Years in this wonderful U.S.A has given us much, a new life with opportunities to grow and blend into the Melting Pot that this country is. What would our lives have been like had we never left Ireland? Hard to imagine, but God who is in charge of all things, has the answer. And we praise Him. Visiting Ireland in October 2010 was the highlight of the year for us both, enjoying every minute of it, reconnecting with family and friends. Today Verona and I are proud of our Irish heritage and we like to think our blend of American and Irish life is the perfect one! TOANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion results. What really is scary is that no one knows where this money comes from, it could be groups of Americans, the Chinese, the Russians or just people who want to see our country fail. Voters deserve the truth and the Supreme Court should admit that they made a mistake with these recent decisions that could and presently is destroying our country. Wake up Supremes, we can see it, why cant you? Jerry Segovis OcalaI dont think he could do it without me!Now theres a statement that shows how strong a man can not be. In a TV interview, Ann Romney stated, referring to Mitt Romney, we are partners, true partners in every sense of the way. I dont think he could do it without me. I dont think he could. Wow, what a statement by a wife whose husband is running for president, or should I say habitual runner for president. She also said that she would not do it again after the 2008 election where John McCain defeated Romney in the primary. Now, I ask you, whos the captain of the Romney ship? It sure doesnt sound like Mitt Romney. Between his wife, the Mormon church, poor tax situation, and Paul Ryan, I dont see much on the plus side for Romney. Having lived through presidents from Hoover on, I dont think Ive ever heard a wife say her husband couldnt do it without her. Sure, weve had strong first ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama, but these husbands ran for the office, not their wives. If I must say, and we do get a package deal here, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama, far from it. In her interview she seemed angry, bitter, not very nice and not in control of herself. Now this is a person who would have to interact with the American people, and even world leaders, while at her husbands side. Not only Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan scare me but Anne Romney as well. She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Maybe its because the Romneys stated they would gave 10 percent to charities but primarily the Mormon church, and if they released accurate tax reports, they would be out more money. This tax situation has become a big bugaboo for candidates, Republicans in particular. Michael Dukakis, stated and its been confirmed by other Massachusetts residents, that Romney really was a poor governor. Dukakis released six years of his income tax filings, but those who dont or wont release their tax returns, surely must have something to hide, say in the Cayman Islands. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 The only thing the Republicans can rant on is the Obama health care law, yes, its the law. Senior citizens can get free hospice care under the Obama plan, through Medicaid, when they cant get it now as they have to pay for it. Ah, what a deceiving way the Republicans would like to lead the public down the primrose (thorny) path. One thing is for sure, all of us senior citizens and baby boomers had better send Romney back home, whichever state he calls home now. Who knows? Frankly, Romney scares me more than George W. Bush did and thats really, really scary. Bill Ford Oak Run Use common sense The order to have certain illegals being able to qualify for a drivers license, Social Security card, work permit, etc. is insane. Thankfully, we have a governor in Arizona who says No!. It would be nice if all governors would follow her example. We have no way of knowing exactly when the illegals got here or even proof of their age. What form of legal identification would they have? I guess we are just to take their word for it. (That is a little bit of sarcasm). Liberals still dont know the meaning of illegals, they are just interested in getting their vote, which is basically guaranteed in the future. Our media should constantly be putting factual information out that tells just how much these illegals are costing us in both dollars and in crime statistics. Knowing these numbers should put a stop to so many wanting them here in America. Illegal means they have no right to be here, period! Obama brags on his health care plan hoping that seniors are not smart enough to realize that taking $700 billion out of Medicare will end up costing us more in premiums and limit our benefits. Common sense should tell you this will happen. Others will be getting coverage that we seniors end up paying for. There is no way seniors will benefit by his being in office four more years, and if you dont realize this fact, we are in serious trouble and deserve what we get. We are now sixteen trillion dollars in debt a five trillion increase in less than four years under his watch. We cant survive without drastically cutting this debt! If we re-elect him, we may increase our debt to twenty trillion over the next four years to pay for all of his programs. Where do you think the money will come from? That should make our children and grandchildren very proud of us for making America the next Greece by 2016. The simple truth: If we did away with the tax breaks for the so called 1 percent, it wouldnt make a dent in our PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE10 LAST LETTERS FROM ATTU By Mary Breu Someone once said that heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Nowhere is that more true than in the story of Etta Jones, a nurse and school teacher who found romantic love and her place in the world in the wilds of Alaska, who survived the Japanese invasion of her last teaching post in Attu and four years in a Japanese prison before being rescued by General MacArthurs men. It all began in Pittsburgh when co-workers began talking to her sister Marie about teaching opportunities in Alaska. The idea intrigued her. But in the 1920s a single woman didnt travel 4,000 miles alone and certainly not to a place like the Alaskan interior. So she persuaded her sister Etta, who was also single, to go along with her. Etta had agreed on the condition that she would stay only for a year. But something magical happened that very first day in the little Athabascan village: To me, that first night in our new home was enchantment itself. I hung out the bedroom window, listening to the silence, which was so great it beat incessantly on the ears. It was living stillness. Had Etta not been a prolific letter writer of eastbound mail filled with sparkle and gusto, this amazing story would have been lost to readers. Not long after arriving in Alaska Marie and Etta were invited to dinner and one of the guests was Foster Jones, a prospector from Ohio. The two fell in love and were married a short time later. Ironically, it was Marie who found Alaska a cultural wasteland and returned to the states within the year. Etta took over Maries teaching post and for the next 18 years she and Foster taught English and math in isolated villages like Alutiq, Yupik and Aleut Native villages. During that time Foster became an item in Alaskan history as one of the mushers who carried the diphtheria serum into Nome during the January 1925 epidemic in 60-below weather. Etta and Foster never tried to change the people with whom they lived because they always respected their worth and dignity. In 1941 the Alaska Indian Service decided to open a school in Attu and the couple was hired to operate it. Friends were concerned for their safety because Attu was in Japans backyard. But the pair was fearless. The Japanese did invade the tiny island and Etta was captured and sent to Japan for the duration of the war. Although she accepted speaking engagements once back in the states, Jones would never talk about her captivity because it was too painful a subject. Thanks to her grandniece Mary Breu we have the completed picture of those years. This is a very fine read.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 24, 2012 The other day, I was watching a baseball game on television and a commercial came on. It was an attack ad by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) against Republican nominee Connie Mack. It was about 11 weeks before the November election. I think I nearly cried. You mean we have nearly three months of this to go. I was so glad to walk out to my mailbox last Tuesday, election day, and get nothing but a couple of bills (of course, you can throw the political ads away, you cant do the same with the bills). In the final days before the Aug. 14 primary, the nasty ads that came into the mailbox were a little bit disgusting. Two of the worst were in the race for school superintendent on the Republican side. One ad against Jackie Porter asked, Who IS pulling Jackie Porters strings? It showed a hand with a puppet with Porters face. Then on the flip side of the mailed oversized card it said, Certainly not Marion County Taxpapers, thats for sure! If she even bothers to show up, that is! It went on with various charges, some old. Then there was the one that said George Tomyn cant bring his A game for our kids. On the reverse side it gave him a D for things such as school performance while principal, running the school food service, the fact that he was supposedly passed up more than thirty times for promotion to principal, lsck of a private sector job and accountability. The two ads were put out by a group or groups with two different names, but the same address 235 E. Virginia St., in Tallahassee. The only superintendent candidate on the ballot who wasnt the subject of one of these attack ads was Wally Wagoner. The voters, however, sent a message. The attack ad victims finished 1-2, and Wagoner finished a distant third. So much for the effectiveness of the ads. The sheriffs candidates werent immune to the advertising, either. The same group from the same address in Tallahassee put out an anti-Chris Blair mailing that said Double-Dippin Chris Blair wants an even sweeter deal from taxpayers. It listed a payout, lifetime income and sheriffs salary. It had a picture of a little girl looking over a dropped ice cream cone with three scoops on the ground. Another mailing from Tallahassee, this one from 1700 N. Monroe St., took on Dan Kuhn, saying, A legacy of law enforcement failure and Theres a new sheriff coming to town. Dan Kuhn doesnt measure up. Well, there is a new sheriff coming, and probably his name is Dan Kuhn, and the voters thought he measured up. Two incumbent county commissioners were also the subject of attack ads, and one of them lost. Mike Amsden was accused of years of failed leadership that has cost taxpayers millions of $$. That one came from Citizens for Honesty in Government, 5400 S.W. College Road, Suite 302-152, Ocala. Amsden lost to David Moore. There was also an ad against Stan McClain that said, How has our Community Been Affected by Politician Stan McClains Failed Policies. This one came from Citizens for a Quality Life, 1824 N.E. 2nd Ave., Ocala. McClain won the primary. That was all in the final few days before the election. Many of the candidates had positive mailings and, while I cant stand getting all that stuff in the mail, at least it wasnt insulting to me as a voter. So here we go, getting ready for the general election. If you thought the local attacks were bad, now you get to throw in the federal people. My biggest decision is which garbage can to throw this material in. Are the political ads recyclable? I sure hope not.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Regardless of how you feel about U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, there was one thing that could be said for him. He was from Ocala and gave Marion County its own representative on Congress. The loss last week in the Republican Primary eliminated Stearns from contention and, because of redistricting, means that Marion County will no longer have a representative in Congress from here. That doesnt seem right for a county thats 15th in the state in population and third in area (behind Collier and Polk). A recent editorial in a Lakeland newspaper criticized the redistricting plan that split Polk County into four Congressional districts. But Polk has an incumbent representative who had no opposition. Marion is split among three Congressional districts, and none of the finalists is from our county. In District 3, Ted Yoho from Gainesville, who eliminated both Stearns and Steve Oelrich in the primary, will face Democrat J.R. Gaillot from Fleming Island in Clay County. In District 5, incumbent Corrine Brown, a Jacksonville Democrat, will face LeAnne Kolb, a Republican from Orange Park. In District 11, incumbent Republican Rick Nugent, a Brooksville Republican, will battle H. David Werder, who is from the town of Hudson way down in Pasco County. Notice, none of these candidates are from Marion County. In fact, none are even close to Marion County, except forYoho. The ironic thing is that the anti-Stearns forces may not have gained anything, especially if Yoho defeats Gaillot. Yoho is known as a Tea Party backer, and presumably has the same philosophy as Stearns did. Although stranger things have happened, its highly unlikely that Gaillot can take the victory, although hes probably thrilled not to have to face Stearns or Oelrich. Our county has been underrepresented in the Florida Senate, although we now have Charlie Stone. Now we wont have any hometown influence in Congress. With many people already feeling alienated by government, this only adds to the frustration. We need to find some strong local candidates to run for Congress in 2014. Its not to early to start thinking ahead. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY County loses in Stearns race Last minute attack ads: little effect LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BERNADETTE TOAN Special to the CitizenIt was February, 1978 in Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding areas, it had been snowing constantly all morning, but nothing, not even a blizzard would keep my husband and me from our appointment. We caught the last train from Wilmington to Boston. The storm was not expected to be so big. It covered the whole northeast and lasted thirty three hours. The extremely high winds piled up four feet of snow and thousands of homes lost power. But we were determined and made it to that very important appointment before all traffic would come to a standstill. This was the day we were sworn in as naturalized Americans and our two sons became American citizens that day as well. All applicants who were assigned to be sworn in as American citizens showed up and the judge commended us all for making it under such weather conditions. My husband Jean was born in Shanghai, China and I was born and raised in a town named Drogheda in the smallest county of Ireland on the east coast. Just prior to leaving Ireland we had moved to Dublin, a stepping stone. I look back to that eventful day of July 7, 1962, when my sister Verona and I left Ireland in search of a new life. We both gained valuable experience working in Dublin for about four years. Months of preparation proceeded, with visa applications, vaccinations, references etc and apprehensively letting our parents finally know our plans. Fortunately the quota for Irish citizens was generous back in the early sixties. Saying goodbye to our tearful parents at Dublin airport was tough, and assuring them our plan was to go for only a year was not of much consolation to them. Arriving at Idlewild Airport, as it was called in those days, for us coming from the greens of home stepping off the plane into the chrome and concrete fairyland of vast parking lots and wide open spaces was quite something! At the usual customary immigration, customs etc. we found the people we encountered were helpful and friendly to newcomers. Our older brother Frank had already immigrated to The United States and his Irish friends helped us settle into life in Jackson Heights, Queens. We found an affordable basement apartment, sharing with an Irish girl friend of my brothers, and went job hunting. Verona found a job as secretary in an electrical engineering office, a job that lasted quite a while, and I applied for and was accepted as a reservationist with Pan American Airways, about the time when computers were introduced. This company of course is now gone with the proverbial wind. Both Verona and I quickly got used to our daily routine of commuting, catching crowded buses to the subway. A whole new experience was subway travel to Manhattan, crowded, hanging on to straps, all jammed together, rarely finding a seat. We had to adjust to all this rush and hurry after our easier, much less pressured life in Dublin! READER OPINIONS INVITED Celebrating 50 years in the United States PLEASESEETOAN PAGE9 Voters deserve the truthThe president is being blamed for political ads that depict Romney as a heartless candidate who would shove grandma off a cliff and also introducing vouchers for seniors to purchase their health benefits on the open market. Romney is accusing the president of taking 716 billion dollars out of the Medicare system and using this money to shore up Obamacare, which, by the wa,y is despised by any politician with an R after his name. Of course both of these accusations are wrong because the real truth is that these lies and distortions are the results of the Super Pacs gone wild. These Super Pacs were allowed by the Supreme Courts decision to allow hundreds of millions of dollars to be injected into the political campaigns on all levels. If you remember correctly, these Supremes have lifetime appointments and they can impose their will with their decisions on all issues that reach their court. This particular issue on money being injected secretly into political campaigns may possible be their worst decision of all time. Not knowing where this money comes from is only part of the problem. The biggest issue is influencing elections that decide the direction our country is heading politically. You may agree or disagree, but money can and has been influencing elecPLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comA call for blood donors and a correction of information is this weeks OTOW Happenings.Life South Blood MobileNext month celebrates Labor Day.

Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on professional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person even if its said in jest could delay or even derail your progress. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A colleague might try to goad you into saying or doing the wrong thing. Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your supporters stand with you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some difficult situations. And, of course, knowing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance.

Shes a big part of the Cracker Barrel family. And how does Rita feel about her work? Ive met a lot of special people. Ive gotten to know so many of them. A lot of those same people evidently feel the same way about her. Friday, August 24, 2012 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, August 24, 2012 www.smcitizen.com three services on Sunday morning in the original sanctuary, and the church added an 18,000 square-foot education/fellowship building in 1996. The southwest side of Ocala is now home to several Baptist churches, he said. The veteran pastor grew up in First Baptist Church in Pinetta, in Madison County. His mother died shortly after his birth, and his father, John Wesley, married Beulah Pulliam when Downing was three. His grandmother, Laura Downing, was a constant in the young boys life, he said. She made a big difference in my life. I am dedicating my retirement celebration to her, he said. Downings family insisted on church attendance, but he resisted becoming a Christian. I say I was a druggie. I was drug to church all my life, so when I got old enough, I didnt want anything to do with it, he said. The influence of high school girlfriend Deloris Wadkins led him to accept the Lord. When her family decided to move from Madison to Arkansas, the couple married to avoid separation. We decided that it was too far to go to date, so we got married, he said. Twenty-year-old John Downing and his 19-year-old bride settled in Madison where he worked for Winn Dixie for 10 years. During that time, they had two children, Ann and John Jr. He also felt Gods call to preach. The young family moved to Hintonville, Mississippi, where he was pastor of Seminary Baptist Church while studying at William Carey College in Hattiesburg. After graduation in 1975, he was tired of school, he said. The Downings moved back to their home state where he served three years at South Flomaton Baptist Church, and supplemented his salary by returning to the grocery business. In 1979, Downing was ready to commit to a seminary education. He moved his family to Ozona, Mississippi, where he was pastor of First Baptist Church. Downing commuted to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary while his wife worked at a local bank. She earned her PHT degree during that time Putting Hubby Through, he said. Only weeks after graduation in 1982, the family made its last moveto Ocala. Thirty years later, 69-year-old Downing describes College Road Baptist as a very gracious, loving and generous church. The Downings plan to stay in Ocala. Downing said his life goal, holding forth the Word of LifeJesus, still is foremost in his future plans. Rest and travel are planned for the rest of 2012, to visit the mountains in Missouri, daughter Ann Lawton and her husband Tom in Laredo, Texas, and son John Jr., his wife Misty and five grandchildren in the Atlanta area. Downing then hopes to serve as interim pastor and supply preacher and to participate in mission trips. His life verse sets the pattern, he said: holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ, I may have cause to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain (Phil. 2:16).

BY JIM CLARK EditorTo the casual observer and out-of-town traveler visiting Cracker Barrel on State Road 200 near Interstate 75, Rita Fitch may seem like just another dining room hostess at the popular chain. But when they learn more, they find out that, at age 95, shes the oldest Cracker Barrel employee in the country, and shes still going strong workinsg a full 35 hours a week. The store honored Rita on Thursday, Aug. 16, on the occasion of her 95th birthday (she doesnt look it), with a pair of cakes and a song, and several guests, many of whom dropped off cards, about two hours into her regular 2 to 9 p.m. shift. She makes the daily trek down busy State Road 200 to and from her home in Beverly Hills. She has been at Cracker Barrel since 2000, when she moved from Texas. She already had worked a couple of years there for the same company. Among the regulars she seated that afternoon were Bruce and Laurie Gregory, who live off West State Road 40. She really caters to veterans on Mondays. She supports our efforts, Bruce said. Indeed, Rita emphasized, Theyre very special to me, about the pair. She comes from a military family. Her husband was in the Army, a son was in the Marines and a brother was in the Air Force. That leaves the Navy, and, yes, thats where Rita worked, making fuses at a facility in Rochester, New York. Were a vet family, she said. She also worked for Eastman Kodak and for Xerox. She was born in Maine, and went to school in Rita Fitch still works a full-time schedule BY CAROLYN NICHOLS Florida Baptist WitnessThe history of College Road Baptist Church in Ocala is also an account of almost all John Downings pastoral career. The church will honor him this Sunday, Aug. 26, his 30th anniversary and the date of his retirement. Downing became College Road Baptist Chapels first full-time pastor in 1982, when the fledgling congregation met in a double-wide modular building on 10 acres west of Interstate 75 on State Road 200. The mission church had begun two years earlier at College Park Elementary School, a vision realized for Marion Baptist Association Director of Missions John Sible and Oakcrest Baptist Church Pastor Bill Terrell. They had a vision for a church on the southwest side of Ocala. That was the beginning, Downing said. Marion association and the Florida Baptist Convention, along with Oakcrest Baptist, Highlands Baptist Church and Wyomina Park Baptist Church helped the church get on her feet. Some of the 29 charter members of College Road Baptist came from those congregations, he said. Downing preached his first sermon as pastor Aug. 22, 1982, and the church was constituted a year later. It wasnt long before the new pastor realized Ocala was growing in the direction of the church. Ocala was in transition, in a growing situation. Paddock Mall was new, and people were moving this directionespecially people from northern states, he said. I saw that the church was going to take off. A building committee was formed almost as soon as the church was constituted, and a 225-seat sanctuary was finished in 1986. Although it seemed large at first, the congregation grew to fill the building, and a second service was added to accommodate a crowd that can grow by 10 percent with the influx of winter snowbirds, he said. Today the 575 members worship in PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJohn Downing looks over the Bible that was given to him when he was ordained on Nov. 25, 1973. His congregation will honor him Sunday evening as he retires.
