BRIEFS Florida KidCare is enrolling families every day and United Way of Marion County has joined a statewide effort to help more uninsured children receive health care at a price their families can afford through Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctors visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County.

At 0917 the Wesson began firing on three Japanese planes. In the ensuing fight, she was struck by a Kamikaze plane. One Kamikaze plane slipped by and crashed amidship at the torpedo tubes. It was during that attack that seven men lost their lives and 25 were wounded. During all the confusion, helping the wounded and fighting the fires aboard the ship a young sailor spotted the American flag and ships pennant in flames and he bravely retrieved them and saved what was left. Len was that young sailor. He kept them and displayed them for many years in his home. It is the legacy of men (heroes) like Leonard Wiessner who risked a moment in time to preserve precious pieces of history. Paul and I helped Ida by placing Len in the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., (lonesailor.com). The framed American flag and pennant need a pennant home beyond the Wiesnners. With many phone calls to Nat Museums, with the first one to say yes would receive the donation. The Veterans Memorial Park right here in Ocala was the one. On Aug. 16, Ida, her friend Joyce Quinn, Paul and I went to the museum and presented the framed American flag. It will be there on display for all to see and learn of a brave young sailor. If you have a chance stop by and view it. It is men and women who bring home mementoes that tell a story of bravery and heroism. Stop and think about yourself or your neighbors and the stories to be told. To all of our military, past, present and future thank you for your time served and your bravery to answer the call. To all Pine Run veterans I want to say a grateful Thank You for your service. From Karen Bowen, Proud Navy Brat! HERO CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 trative staff and functions as the fiscal agent. The Board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capability of food and shelter programs in high-need areas throughout the country. A local board will determine how the funds awarded are to be distributed among emergency food and shelter programs run by local service organizations. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds that might become available under this phase of the program. Under terms of the grant from the national board, local government or private voluntary organizations chosen to receive funds must: 1) be nonprofit; 2) have an accounting system and conduct an annual audit; 3) practice nondiscrimination; 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Agencies will be required to provide a DUNS number and a valid e-mail address for contact person. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply. Marion County has distributed these funds previously to organizations such as: Interfaith Emergency Services; Salvation Army; Annie Johnson Senior Service Center; Creative Services; Arnette House; HELP Agency of the Forest; Marion County Homeless Council, Marion County Childrens Advocacy Center, Zion United Methodist Church, Shepherds Lighthouse, and Brothers Keeper.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, a unique, interactive memorial will take place in the evening: Beginning at dusk, as those nearly 3,000 flags stand in perfect rows, the field of flags will be lit and will be spaced so that those who wish to, may walk between them. A multi-screen video tribute will display the story of events of and surrounding 9-11. Candle memorials will be in place and candles will be available for those who attend to light in remembrance. In sacred symbolism of our nation, the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey will be onsite featuring a live bald eagle. This same evening, the Florida Blood Centers will be onsite conducting a blood drive. Please note, this years featured charity for Field of Flags is the American Red Cross.

As she told me of this incident, she smiled her warm smile and added, Norm owed me big time after that. At the time of their retirement in 1996, Cherrywood Estates was advertised in the AARP magazine. Norm had a brother who lived in Beverly Hills, Florida, so the location was about ideal for the two of them. That is how Norm and Pauline found their way to Ocala and to our community. The houses were just being built at that time and much of their street wasnt even paved. Shortly after moving in, Pauline remembers walking to the clubhouse and coming face to face with one of her new neighbors; a large cow. During their married years, one of the many things that Pauline and Norm shared was a love of billiards. Norm got her interested in the game and they spent many happy hours together playing and perfecting their shooting ability. Pauline laughs when she talks about being at the clubhouse and playing as a team with Norm. In front of people she confided, he was a saint so when she missed a shot or messed up on a leave, he would tell her, Thats OK or no problem. On the way home, however, it was totally different. Why didnt you play that shot, or Why didnt you try and leave the ball there instead of She let it roll off her back. Five years ago, Norm was setting up a nine-ball tournament. He had to go into the hospital for a simple procedure and would be back home in a couple of days to complete the planning. Unfortunately, complications set in and Norm passed away. In his honor, the many pool shooters who knew and admired Norm decided to carry on with the tournament in his memory. Each year, Pauline presents the trophy to the tournament winner in honor of her husband, Norm. This is a tradition that is hopefully going to be carried on for many more years to come. Pauline continues her interest in pool and is on the Cherrywood Traveling Ladies team. In addition, she plays cards a couple of nights per week in the clubhouse; enjoys bingo every Thursday night and plays dominoes every week. Loving the people of Cherrywood and the activities, Pauline has a contagious zest for life and a quick smile. She loves her family and friends and is a real asset to the Cherrywood community.From Your ReporterIf you have an idea or suggestion for an article you would like to see in this section of the Citizen, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Does the piece in question contain formaldehyde, flame retardants or stain resistant sprays? Is the fabric used certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard program (GOTS, which mandates that at least 70 percent of fibers are derived from organic sources and do not contain chemical dyes or other additives)? Is the wood used certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as sustainably harvested? Does the piece contain any parts or pieces that come from bamboo or reclaimed wood or recycled metal or plastic? And is it easy to disassemble into reusable or recyclable parts if it needs to be replaced down the line? If the salesperson doesnt know the answers, chances are the piece does not pass environmental muster. Limiting your search to brick-and-mortar and Internetbased retailers that specialize in green products is one way to reduce the amount of research and self-education needed, especially because salespersons in such stores are usually up-to-speed on the latest and greatest in sustainable furnishings. Some leading national furniture chains that carry a sizeable inventory of sustainable goods include Crate and Barrel, Room and Board and West Elm, but many more single store eco-friendly furniture stores exist across the country. Some leading online green furniture retailers include Eco-Friendly Modern Living, Furnature, InMod, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, SmartDeco, Southcone and Viesso.CONTACTS: SFC, www.sustainablefurnishings.org; FSC, www.fsc.org; GOTS, www.global-standard.org; Eco-Friendly Modern Living, www.eco-friendlymodernliving.com; Furnature, www.furnature.com; InMod, www.inmod.com; Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, www.mgbwhome.com; SmartDeco, www.smartdecofurniture.com; Southcone, www.southcone.com; Viesso, www.viesso.com.E arth T alk is written and edited by R oddy Scheer and D oug M oss and is a registered trademark of E T he E n v ironmental M aga z ine ( www emaga z ine com ).

Thursday, Sept. 13 Federal retirees to gatherThe National Association of Retired Federal Employees, Chapter 2279 of Ocala, and their spouses, will meet at the Olive Garden Restaurant, Sept. 13, at 1 p.m. for lunch and a meeting afterward.

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 31, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com W e dont believe Missouri Congressman and Senate candidate Todd Akin committed a gaffe when he was asked if he would support abortions for women who have been raped. He said: It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, thats really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. The congressmans legitimate rape quote should rank among the most awkward comments in the history of the English language. It wasnt clear enough to qualify as an outbreak of hoof-inmouth disease. We think he said what he intended to say without emphasizing what he really meant. Mr. Akin holds a degree in engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a degree in www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 T here are little things in life than can have a major effect on your concentration, your thought process, your lifestyle. Last week, my cell phone died. I wont tell you the brand, but this cell phone could do more things than just be a phone. Still, you had to maneuver around the screen with a little button, then press that button to make your phone do anything. If you wanted to type something, the keyboard was so small that a kindergartener probably would have been frustrated. It was probably just a battery, but somehow I remembered that years ago, when I got into the plan I was on, I was told that after two years I was entitled to a new phone if I signed up again for two years. Since those first two years had long since passed, I decided to find out what benefits awaited me. So I went to my providers store, and it turns out that I would get a credit toward a new phone. Phones cost so much now that they couldnt keep giving them away, I guess. So I took the plunge. I got a new phone, and I paid very, very little for it, which is good. I must say, its only been a few days, but so far Ive learned how to turn it on, turn it off, make a call and receive a call. Hows that for just a few days? This is one of those phones that you just touch the screen and it performs whatever function you touch. I havent figured out how to lock the screen yet, so I dont accidentally touch something, but I will. Honest. I found out that I can browse the Internet, send and receive email, use it as a GPS so I can find out where I am (hey, Im a man, I never ask for directions), listen to music and do all sorts of fun things with games. And now, I can even (gasp!) text. To get to the keyboard, you slide it out from under the screen and turn your phone sideways. In an amazing bit of technology, whatever is on your screen also turns sideways, saving you from a stiff neck. Sheer genius. Then there are apps. Im assuming that is short for applications, but you know what they say about people who assume things. I found several apps on my phone, but Im still learning how to use them. On The Weather Channel on Saturday morning, Stephanie Abrams was in Key West getting ready for the hurricane, and she talked to someone from the Red Cross about an app that they had available. Trouble is, for dunces like me, she never said how to get that app. Doesnt she know that people like me need lots of stepby-step guidance? The people at the store were very nice. They downloaded all my contacts from my old phone. They even transferred my ringtone, which is music from 50 years ago. Its a song called Meet the Mets. Those who know me probably already guessed that. So Im going through the abbreviated owners manual, which most companies evidently now expect you to read online, and trying to learn a lot of things. But I have to cut this short. My phone is ringing I think. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

L abor Day isnt celebrated much these days as it was originally intended, which was to honor the working people of this country. Next Mondays holiday, the first Monday in September, used to be a big day for labor, particularly unions, to honor the workers who built America into the large industrial complex it is today. But with many of those jobs gone, either vanished or sent overseas, the holiday has lost its luster, and its hard to convince young people of it being anything other than just another day off, marking the traditional end of summer. In many parts of the country, school starts the day after Labor Day. Summer vacation is over and its time to hit the books. Up north, some apartment complexes and communities that opened their pools on Memorial Day close them after Labor Day, even if the temperature is still hovering around 90. Temperatures eventually start to turn a little cooler, a warning that winter is not too far away, even though fall has not yet begun. Of course, here in Florida, the end of summer is still far away. Were more concerned about an active hurricane month that anything else to do with the weather. So millions of people will celebrate Labor Day on Monday, without giving much thought as to why it is called that. Many of us had parents and grandparents who toiled as laborers, helping this country make advances during the 20th Century. Its a lot easier for us to remember them and their contributions. So if you have a chance, talk to a younger person about Labor Day and what it means. Workers are what made this country great, and if we lose that work ethic, we could be in trouble down the road. But, as usual, we leave you with this warning. If youre traveling this coming weekend to celebrate the holiday, please drive carefully. We want you back as readers next week. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Labor Day losing some of its meaning What happens if I push this button? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What politicians mean isnt always what they say Sanity and guns Andrew Kramer of The New York Times reported. Russians can buy only a long-barrel firearm if they have a police permit that requires a clean criminal record, a gun safety course and a medical certificate of sanity. Thats right: a medical certificate of sanity something American politicians dare not dream of, let alone enact, under the intimidating shadow of the gun lobby. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAnswering a letterIn your Aug. 3 issue, a submission from an altogether too frequently published writer appeared in which he took issue with an unidentified ad (published somewhere) concerning Senator Bill Nelson. He carries on, the Republicans will do anything to further their cause and the Republicans tell lies to try and bring him down lies were the thing that got us into a war with Iraq by a Republican named George W. Bush. Im not sure Nelson could tell a lie. After he gets the words out of his mouth I doubt anyone could understand what his affected so-called southern drawl had said. Think how awful it would be if he noticed several people sitting on a railroad track as a train was approaching. Hed never get the warning out of his mouth in time. Unfortunately hes just another non-liar, or so says the writer. But in fairness to Senator Nelson, hes nowhere, thankfully, in the same category as Representative Pelosi and Senator Reid. Has anyone ever lied and said the opposition party increased the national debt by trillions of dollars, but continues to side step and hide the opportunities to reduce that debt which has saddled this country with that debt for years to come unless something changes? Of course, that position assumes their party Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED divinity studies from Coventry Theological Seminary. We doubt either school offers an elective in Gynecology 101. Opinions from around the world about Congressman Akins half suggestion that there are two kinds of rape have been various. A comment in the British Guardian newspaper suggested that by using the word legitimate, Mr. Akin was bending the word rape to sound less rapey. Calling Congressman Akins comments a mistake of words and of heart, the North American editor for the British Broadcasting Company dismissed Akins opinion as a politician peddling pregnancy-by-rape theories which date back to the 13th century. One of the old wives tales of that time was that pregnancy wouldnt have occurred if the woman hadnt enjoyed the rape. More professionally, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists called Mr. Akins statement medically offensive and dangerous to between 10,000 and 15,000 pregnant women who request abortions annually because of rape or incest. Mr. Akin seems to doubt those numbers. Gail Collins, who writes for the New York Times, was on the right trail about what Mr. Akin meant. Collins said Mr. Akin exposed the phoniness of the rape and incest exceptions which are used by some anti-abortionists to make their opposition appear more moderate. Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Diologues, wrote a note to Mr. Akin saying his assumption is that women and their experiences are not to be trusted. Her observation was right on! Mr. Akin was dismissing the annual rape and incest statistics of the Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He was suggesting that rape and incest exceptions just encourage women carrying undesired pregnancies to claim an abortion entitlement by lying about the circumstances of the conception in other words what he would call an illegitimate rape. Since the Rowe v. Wade abortion decision in 1973, some 300 human life amendments have been introduced in Congress. So far as we know, none suggests there are two kinds of rape legitimate and illegitimate. is squeaky clean no lies or offensive statements containing words like their current selection felon in referring to the opposition candidate. It seems the Democrats would rather let possible remedies remain on the Congressional way back burners and blame the Republicans than be a constructive force to implement creditable change.

E The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: How energy efficient (and comfortable) is underfloor heating, sometimes known as radiant heating? Marcy Dell, Boston, MA Underfloor radiant heating involves under laying the floor with a hot element or tubing that transfers heat into the room via infrared radiation and convection, obviating the need for forced or blowing air. According to the U.S. Department of Energys Energy Savers website, radiant heating has a number of advantages over other forms of heat distribution: It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts. It is also flexible as it can run off of a variety of energy sources: Gas, oil, wood, solar and other sources or combinations thereof can feed radiant systems. And radiant heating is a good choice for those with severe allergies as no potentially irritating particles get blown around the room. Several aspects of radiant heating make it more energy efficient. For starters, the uniform heat distribution over the entire surface of a floor heats the lower half of the room, enveloping inhabitants in warmth at a lower overall temperaturein some cases up to five degrees Fahrenheit coolerthan a conventional heating system. Radiators and other forms of point heating circulate heat inefficiently and hence need to run for longer periods to obtain comfort levels, reports the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNet). They draw cold air across the floor and send warm air up to the ceiling, where it then falls, heating the room from the top down, creating drafts and circulating dust and allergens. RESNet adds that radiant systems transmit heat on average some 15 percent more efficiently than conventional radiators. The efficiency gains can be magnified significantly with good insulation and a well-designed system. While tearing out old heating systems and/or replacing decent existing flooring might be overkill for the sake of moving to radiant heat, those embarking on new building projects or contemplating major renovations should certainly consider it. According to TLC Networks Green Living Guide, there are two main types of radiant heating, electric and hydronic. In the former, heated wires installed in the floor radiate heat upward. This type of radiant heat is most commonly used to retrofit a single roomespecially a bathroom or kitchenin an older house or building. Meanwhile, hydronic radiant heating, whereby heated water is forced through tubes under the floor, is more often designed into a new structure from the get-go, and is more energy efficient overall. TLC points out that while radiant heat is definitely more efficient in smaller, snug homes with lower roofs, it might not always be the greenest solution in homes with bigger rooms: In some scenarios it can be less energy efficient than forced-air heating. TLC recommends consulting with a reputable heating contractor to see if radiant heating is a sensible way to go. Of course, pairing a radiant heating system with an energy efficient EnergySTAR-approved programmable thermostat can indeed save households hundreds of dollars a year on home heating bills while keeping inhabitants warmer all year long. Many states offer financial incentives to upgrade home and commercial heating systems in ways that boost energy efficiency. Check out the free Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) to find out what kinds of tax rebates or other incentives might be available in your neck of the woods.

And what should I look for when shopping for greener furniture? W. Cary, Trenton, NJ While we now opt often for greener cars, appliances, household cleaners and food to up the sustainability quotient of our lifestyles, the furniture we spend all day and night in close contact with is often far from eco-friendly. The vast majority of sofas, chairs, beds and other upholstered furniture we love to lounge on contain potentially carcinogenic formaldehyde and/or toxic flame retardants and stain resistors that have been linked to developmental and hormonal maladies. And much of the wood used in desks, chairs, tables and the like (as well as in the frames of upholstered furniture) comes from unsustainably harvested lumber which contributes to the deforestation of tropical rainforests. But today, thanks to increased consumer awareness and demand, there are more green choices in furniture available than ever before. A good place to start the search for that perfect couch or chair is the website of the Sustainable Furniture Council (SFC), a nonprofit formed in 2006 to help develop solid standards and certification processes within the home furnishings industry. The organization has become a leading information source and network of some 400 green furniture makers and related retailers, suppliers and designers as well as other non-profits. Consumers looking for greener furniture can browse SFCs membership list which features contact information and website links accordingly. Buyers beware: Just because a furniture maker is listed with SFC doesnt mean it eschews all chemicals or unsustainably harvested wood entirely, but only that it is making strides in that direction. Consumers should still be knowledgeable about which green features they are looking for and/or which kinds of materials to avoid. Of course, with something like furniture you really need to see and feel it in order to decide whether it will work in your space. Eco-conscious consumers making the rounds at local furniture stores should ously, the writers eyesight (or maybe its his hindsight) fails to accept the fact that Republicans are pretty good people and can deliver tit for tat. The truly sorry bit is that the media is so biased in its presentation of the news (?) as it continues to distribute that kind of garbage and, in so doing, continues to divide the country. The writer says he lived on this earth since Hoover was the president. Ive lived on this earth a little longer than he has. I was alive when Calvin Coolidge was the president. Except for the last few years, its been a good place to live. So, it would seem the writer and I should have many things in common. He was a musician and I was a member of my churchs catechism choir, until my monotone forced the director to relieve me of my responsibilities. He was a sports information director I was a player on a Big Ten basketball team before serving in World War II. After service, I played football and baseball, as well as basketball, at a small church-oriented college. Again, to his credit, he evidently is a good wood carver. The photos appear to display real workmanship. Hes got me there. I cant match that skill. My work was centered in factory management. I was responsible, during my career, to manage and direct the work of others as many as 6,800 employees during the assignment. I can match him in the number of work locations. I put in time at Bettendorf, Iowa, Moline and East Mole, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chicago, Illinois, Memphis, Tennessee, Mattoon, Illinois, Portland, Oregon, Winchester, Kentucky and had two satellite manufacturing operations in Canada. So, I guess I am pretty familiar with what a lot of people have on their minds. And he is a veteran I thank him for his service on the USS Leyte CV. I, too, served. I saw my first aircraft carrier (the Ben Franklin) while at anchor as the invasion fleet formed in the Ulithian Atoll for the landings of Okinawa. The Leyte had managed to sail to that anchorage after having been severely damaged while attacking the Japanese homeland. It was anchored next to the hospital ship, MercyY, or maybe it was the Comfort. How anyone survived on that damaged vessel was miraculous. I was a Marine (and always will be). I drove a tank, and then I commanded a platoon of tanks during the forgotten war Korea. The Aug. 3 and 24 writer was a hospital auditor I had a fairly compatible position chairman of the board of a 400-bed hospital Apparently, he is still a golfer. I beat my age. His brief bio, appearing in the S.W. Neighbors brochure, states he was a good friend of Red Auerbach and of Bob Evans. Well, my wife and I sat down with Big Jim Thompson, a former governor of Illinois, and his wife at a mansion dinner, along with six other couples after attending a governor-appointed regulatory board meeting. And I played basketball, while in Beijing, China, with the 5th Marine Regt. All-Stars along with such recognizable names as Andy Phillips, Alvin Dark, Jack Maddox, Chet Johnson and other. I met John Sherman Cooper, one of the most respected Kentucky senators. So, we can all drop names. They dont cut water. In that same Aug. 24 issue of the Citizen, the writer took issue with Ann Romney, the primary reason I have written this note aside from hoping that some time I would catch a column from some other name dropped and disoriented political individual. He says, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Why should she? Michelle Obama has secreted her graduate dissertation in the hallowed halls of that famous liberal eastern university. I should think that a single individuals dissertation is considerably less important than a taxpayers filing, even though that dissertation is reportedly not consistent with a democratic society. Its not the writers business to speculate on what is included in that report. A tax return is private property even though it has most assuredly been amply reviewed by government IRS personnel. It is the U.S. governments responsibility to verify the authenticity of the filing. Besides, Im not one of those who believes that a professional football player should receive more money for his services that a cardiac surgeon who saves lives. A working individual should be compensated for the worth he (or she) brings to an organization. Shuffling paper, making speeches, bobbing up airplane boarding ramps, violating the Constitution, bowling to foreign leaders, etc., and giving the nation away will never get this nation on its feet. Unfortunately, the other writer does not see the trees for the forest. Remember Abe Lincoln? He said, in part, at Gettysburg, that his nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth. The current president doesnt subscribe to those everlasting true words. Only a failed government can give money to an individual who is able but does, in fact, not week work and does nothing to deserve compensation. But then, maybe hes right: We should all just sit back and wait for the gift and certainly, perform no work. It isnt important a few trillion more in the hole is nothing. The president just has to run the presses and mail the checks. Is it at all possible that he and his followers are beating the wrong drums? Robert J. Gildea Oak RunBug control neededNo-see-um, biting midge, punkie, sand fly, or ceratopogonidae; no matter what you may call them, these tiny flying insects have been a plague in Florida households for years. They are kin to the mosquito in that the female requires blood from a mammal to complete her reproduction cycle. They take flight at dusk and dawn and seem to prefer the hairy heads of men for their blood source. No commercial product that promises household control of these pests is available and all home remedies involve placing open containers of various materials with strong odors around the house. We need some research on bug control. Industrial concerns could do it, if there was a large market with a large profit opportunity. But there may be a better and less expensive way. The universities in our state conduct research on many projects for many organizations. This research must be funded, usually by the organization that will benefit by Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 Underfloor heating: How energy efficient is it?

Devereux Kids, established in 1999, is a self-supporting primary prevention and diversion program which offers community learning programs and facilitation services to teach positive intervention and advocacy skills to neighborhood groups, faith communities, grassroots organizations and interested residents. All our efforts to build an ever more peaceful and respectful community among peoples of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds will prove meaningless if we allow the most fragile and voiceless among us to suffer according to Delphine Herbert, current president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County. The statistics for the state of Florida are alarming and getting worse in every important measurement of childrens well-being education, health family support and community care. Our lawmakers and policymakers are not responding. We as women and as people of faith must become ever more powerful advocates on behalf of our children. Everyones future depends upon it.

the work, or more often by grants from Tallahassee. We are in an election year. If one or more of our candidates for our state legislature could see an opportunity to provide a solution to a problem that troubles a large number of down home voters, maybe we could get a bill to fund such a study. The school selected could also show the rest of our country that here in Florida, we do more on our campuses than play football. Bill Farthing Ocala Who is this man? There is no question we have huge differences of opinion among our neighbors and I respect our right to disagree. I do congratulate Harold Imgrund on his excellent letter last week, he included pure honest facts, not just opinions that have no bearing on a candidates qualification. It will be interesting to see how readers respond to his letter, for I cant understand how any patriotic American approves of this direction for our country. I believe Who is this Man? is the most important question we should have in considering who we want to elect to office, especially the president of the United States. To determine this, we must consider what determines his value system, what makes him who he is. As individuals, we are the result of many things including the following: our parents, who shaped us from day one; the one person we look up to more than any other; where we were raised (this is even more important than where we were born); where we were educated; our religious heritage, including what church we attended ; who were our best friends; who were our mentors; what I was taught about American history; who are my heroes; and the list goes on. I suggest we do not know most of this information about Obama, in fact we know less about him than any president in our history. The media prints every little bit of Romneys history, trying to promote class warfare by making a big issue of his being among the one percent. We will never get much more information about Obama through the liberal media. We had the opportunity to see the new documentary about Obama which answers the above questions from birth to the present and a glimpse into the future. Regardless of your feelings for Obama, love him or hate him, you need to see this film. It is well done, sticks to verifiable incidents, and answers the question, Who Is This Man? Once you can answer this question, you will be in position to cast an educated vote. Americas future depends on it! Wayne Rackley Ocala Medicare misrepresented by GOPIts clear, the Romney/Ryan ticket, is misrepresenting its Medicare cuts to the public. Of course this is nothing new. There never, and I mean never, has been a Republican president who has balanced the budget, created and passed bills for the middle class, or has been truthful to the American people. For example, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Herbert Hoover. and on and on and on. Even President Johnson, after President Lincoln was assisinated, let the northern carpetbaggers roam freely through the south and disrupt reconstruction. Having spent my life in the health care, corporate and political arena, its sad that the Republicans can sell so many people on all of their unstable, illogical programs. Now, heres something to think about. 90 percent of the population vote based on what they are told by politicians, not what they actually know. The average American, and average is not too bright, is not well informed on any of the issues, and never will be. Another thing Ive said before. Ohio, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Kentucky auto workers should be thanking President Obama, who saved the auto industry and probably their retirement packages while the Republicans condemed and still condemn the stimulus package for the auto industry. It was hilarious to listen to Paul Ryan speak at the largest retirement community in the world, the Villages, and use his mother as a crutch, when all the time he wants to destroy her Medicare and Social Security, the Villagers ate it up. Yes, Obama would cut Medicare spending but not benefits, $716 billion as would the Romney/Ryan ticket, but its how they would do it that counts. Obama will not cut benefits but would crack down on double billing by insurance companies and health care providers. Double billing is one of the worst abuses to any federal program. Been there, seen it. The Romney/Ryan plan would, in effect, end Medicare as we know it by replacing it with a voucher program that would leave the average American with $6,400 in extra costs within 10 years. Many of those on Medicare right now, would be affected by this change, even though the Republicans say the current Medicare recipients wouldnt be affected. If Paul Ryan had his way, there would be no more Medicare or Medicaid and no Social Security at all and this is well documented. How does he explain that to his mother? I can tell you Medicare fraud is happening right here in Marion County, as I personally have two Medicare fraud complaints sent to Medicare. Having been a Medicare fraud auditor beginning with the advent of Medicare, I know of what I speak. Oh yes, I would encourage everyone to read, listen and research, mainly research, reliable sources of both of these plans, and then you will quickly realize the Obama plan is the only way to go. In 1964, the naysayers said Medicare wouldnt work and look at us now. Its saved everyone over 65. The Republicans still want to destroy it. In addition, the Romney ticket would increase the deficit through another tax break, by reducing the wealthiest Americans tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. Congressman Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, would cut corporate and capital gains taxes and in doing so, there would be no possible way of balancing the budget until 2040. As an afterthought, Paul Ryan does not believe in giving women the right to their own bodies when it comes to abortion, and he is also against any form of contraception.. Finally, Ryan is much stronger than Romney, but is still a liability to the Republican ticket. Romneys wife tells him what to do. She said in a CNN-TV interview, he couldnt do it without me, he just couldnt do it. Now two liabilities dont make a plus two but a minus two. Something on the order of the movie Dumb and Dumber. We should remember Romney is the wont-give-it-up candidate. If you dont win at first try, try again, but we cant sit back and let Romney keep trying forever, just end it now. Send him back to whatever state he lives in or which ever country he keeps his money. Remember, he was a liability to Massachusetts and used Bain Capital for his own ends, so dont let him do it to the country. A vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket is a vote that would ensure Americas downfall.

At the July meeting, members talked about the upcoming elections on Aug. 14 and Nov. 4. The excitement is palpable as members recognized the many activities that must take place in an election year. It was a meeting for reflection as well, one of review of the presidents achievements on behalf of the American people and his continued determination to fulfill the promises that he made three plus years ago. In this mood Dr. Enid Jones presented an argument on why the banking system had to be saved as there has been so much debate on whether the banks are now serving the communities that provided funding for them when needed. The bottom line: without the financial intermediaries (the banks) the economy as we know it would have collapsed. Using an example of the marginal income of $1 circulating at a spending rate of 90 percent of each payment she showed that the dollar circulating from buyer to seller can generate a total income $8.47 after approximately 20 individuals had taken part in some form of transaction. The significance of this spending pattern is that for every cent spent a product is exchanged which is in turn generates more income as the product has to be manufactured thus using all the factors of production, land, capital, and most importantly, labor or workers (individuals such as your neighbors). The balance of unspent cents becomes savings which are usually placed in banks. If the imagination is stretched beyond $1.00 to several dollars circulating in a country of about 311 million people, then the increase in income is beyond imagination. Furthermore, market transactions are usually done with checks, credit cards and debit cards. These means of trade would be impossible without banks to act as clearinghouses for each other since we all do not have accounts in the same bank. Another very important function of the banking industry, especially commercial banks, occurs in the international trade sector. The transfer of goods and services between countries usually requires a letter of credit from the bank of the buyer in one country in collaboration with the bank of the seller in another country. The letter of credit is a sign of good faith and a guarantee that payment will be made once goods are delivered. International trade is not possible if there is no credibility in the banking system of all the countries involved. While the government itself does not produce goods and it is in fact the private businesses that carry out most of the trade the confidence provided by the government supports the banking system and in turn international trade in all areas of the economy. The fallout of a weak banking system includes loss of confidence in the currency, the U.S. dollar; hence even domestic trade would be compromised. Yes, the bank bail-out was necessary and even essential! The downside of course is that while the commercial sector is stabilizing the assistance for individuals has been less successful but would have been worse without the banks. This is Democrats in Marion Oaks hold meeting not to say other institutions cannot perform the banking functions but they would have to be in place before any collapse. Another topic that was addressed was the referenda on 1 mill real property tax increase that was included in the August election ballot. The discussion centered on the impact of the increase to the individual home and business owner. One mill means 1/1000 of the dollar. So if the assessed value (not necessarily the same as the market value) less an amount for homestead and other exemptions of the home or business is $100,000 then the increase in tax payment will be $100.00 for the year. This seemed a small price to pay for increased funding to our schools in Marion County to provide enhanced opportunities and capital funds for building schools for the success for our children. WHOS ON FIRST? Abbott and Costello tribute show comes to the Circle Square Cultural Center Bill Riley and Joe Ziegler transform themselves into Bud Abbott and Lou Costello through an authentic recreation of the teams mannerisms and vocal stylings. They perform with pinpoint accuracy many of the vaudeville and burlesque routines made famous by Bud and Lou on stage, screen, radio and television, including the classic baseball routine, Whos On First? The duo has performed as Abbott and Costello since 1994 for various corporations, private parties, civic groups, fund raisers and on radio and television. Jason Crutchley originally began working with the team as their sound engineer and announcer in 2002. In 2004, the duo became a trio, as Jason joined Bill and Joe on stage as Scoop Fields Ace Press Agent. Jason also appears as various other characters in a number of routines. Prior to joining Riley and Ziegler, Crutchley, of Pylesville, MD, had worked behind the scenes in several North Harford High School productions as prop master and stage hand.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to fix it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, D.C. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to fix it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, D.C. area and view it as a fixer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can fix it and fix it for good. All these politicians have fixed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him fixed. The results are the same in both situations. Then my wife made this observation. If these politicians are so all fired up about fixing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only fix hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The first thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They firmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there are always those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more benefit than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally significant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal ramifications. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

The original idea was to have a street parade demonstrating the strength of trade and labor organizations. Now many consider the holiday to be the end of summer while others just welcome a day off work. Anticipating the coming holiday, some locals held a parade on Pun Alley to leave some interesting stories. Sleepless A harried business executive went to his physician to get a prescription for sleeping pills, only to find that he was allergic to sedatives. What about some of this twilight sleep Ive read about? he asked the doctor. Oh, thats only for labor, was the reply. What! exclaimed the executive, havent you anything for management? Clean sweepA young man reported for his first day of work at a supermarket. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and gave him a broom and said, Your first job will be to sweep the store. But, Im a FSU graduate, the young man replied indignantly, I even played football there. Oh, Im sorry. I didnt know that, said the manager. Here, give me the broom, I better show you how.Laboring A good union man believes that time heals all wounds. Time and a half heals them a little faster. If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day weekend. Iowa pig farmers have a worry that the mad cow disease may be transmitted to pigs resulting in mad pig disease. In other words, they are worried about the daze of swine neurosis. Hes a gunner in a canning factory. He shells peas. The ushers at a hit musical cheered and stamped their feet at each curtain call. A patron said, You must be crazy about this show. One usher said, Two more curtain calls and we go into overtime. I joined an international union; now I can be out of work all over the world. Twenty years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, and Steve Jobs. Now we have no cash, no hope, and no jobs. Please dont let Kevin Bacon die. An accountant was hired by the circus but they had to fire him because he juggled the books. Hes one of the big guns of the industry; hes been fired six times. Card dealers at blackjack tables have been replaced by machines called auto dealers. Some people are still willing to do an honest days work; but they want a weeks pay for it. You really are getting old when your work is less fun and your fun is more work. I do most of my work sitting down. Thats where I shine. Its not just the work I enjoy, confided the cab driver, its the people I run into.Psychic hotline The company had a phone line that was only used for outgoing fax calls. If any calls came in on this line John knew it would be a wrong number. It got to the point where as soon as the phone rang, he would pick up and say, Psychic Hotline. Im sorry, but youve dialed the wrong number. The caller would often reply with something like, But I didnt even ask to speak to anyone yet. How did you know I dialed the wrong . Oh! (Click). The end So your husband has got a job at last, said a neighbor of Mrs. Smith. Yes, he has, replied Mrs. Smith. It is hard work and he says it is killing him. But thank goodness, its permanent. Jingly jangle jinglyBilly Bob walked into a bar and said, Bartender, one round for everyone, on me! The bartender said, Well, youre in a really good mood tonight. Billy Bob replied, I just got hired by the city to go around and remove all the money from parking meters. I started today. The bartender congratulated him and said, If youre so happy just over having this new job, I can just imagine how happy youll be when you get your paycheck. Billy Bob looked at the bartender with a wondrous look on his face, pulled out a handful of quarters from his pocket, and said, You mean theyll pay me too?

It will air daily following FYI at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Aug. 31 to Sept. 7. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadway announces a cast change for its October play, Squad Room Blues. Lou Winkelman for personal reasons has stepped down from his role as Lt. Mootfowl. Lou for some years has been one of our featured stars in both theatre groups. He is exceptionally talented and we will miss not only his expertise in this role but the wisdom and guidance he has brought to his fellow cast members. We are fortunate at this point in rehearsals to have an equally talented member of our group step into this role at this late date. Lenny Klatt, who along with his wife DiAnne, have been involved in not only many of our Oak Run plays but in others around the area, including the Ocala Civic Theatre. Lenny is a lawyer with offices just down State Rod 200 a little way and we marvel at how he can devote so much time to our productions and carry on a busy law practice as well. You know the old saying, If you want to get a job done, find a busy person. Lenny sure fits that mold. Rehearsals continue to improve each passing day, and Oak Runners are in for a treat. Tickets are selling briskly. Sales in September will be on Sept. 8 from 8 to 10 a.m., Sept. 12 from 8:30 to 9 a.m., Sept. 11 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sept. 22 from 8 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 6:45 p.m., all in the Orchid Club. There will be one sales date in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 3 from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Remember, if you cannot make a public ticket sale, you wont be left at the gate. Call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 and she will accommodate you. Our two Oak Run theatre groups are considering consolidating into a single group but continue to put on two plays a year. We will hold a joint business meeting in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. at which time we will vote in regard to proceeding with the merger of the two clubs. As a practical matter, most of our members belong to both groups and we share equipment, props, costumes, etc,. so it seems consolidation into a single group is the way to go. Medical Team meetingThe Oak Run Medical Team will meet Monday, Sept. 10, at 3 p.m. at the Island Club. This is a very important meeting to prepare for the annual Health Fair scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 25, at Palm Grove. Please mark both dates on your calendars and join us at the meeting. For more information call Linda at 352-873-3365.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS: THE MINISTER, HIS MISTRESS AND A HEARTLESS TEXAS MURDER BY KATHRYN CASEYT hrust violently from their comfort zone, the Dullin family of Waco Texas struggled to grasp the news that older daughter Kari Dullin Baker was deadand by her own hand. None of it made any sense, absolutely none of it. Not even when her sister Nancy tried to tell her on the telephone or now when Linda Dullin was surrounded by two of her three sisters and her oldest niece Lindsey. Linda knew that her sisters meant well and were only trying to help her but she could not endure any more pain at what they were suggesting when Nancy said, We dont believe Kari killed herself. You see, the other women had an advantage Linda didnt have. For years theyd known that Karis husband wasnt who he pretended to bea true man of God. Far from it; he was a predator of women. Though it would take weeks to persuade Linda and husband Jim that Kari was a murder victim, this determined little band of Karis aunts and nieces were not about to give up seeing justice served. Their suspicions were well founded. The suicide note had been typed on a computer, even the signature. Signs of lividity and a cold body contradicted Matts time line on the night of the incident. Then there was a noticeable lack of emotion evident even to the EMTs. And on the day of her supposed suicide, Kari had bragged about the wonderful interview that garnered her a new job. A loving mother, daughter and sister, she would never have left them of her own free will. For years, Baptist Minister Matt Baker had been fired from one pastoral position after another, usually because of a female complaint. Compounding the problem was that Baptist congregations were autonomous and background checks of ministers were rare. Kari was fiercely loyal to Matt, always taking his side and believing that the women were liars. Even so, shortly before her death she voiced suspicions about an affair between Matt and a young, beautiful divorcee. The small town police of Hewitt had done such a sloppy job of investigation that it would take years to piece together enough evidence to bring Matt to trial. This is a well-researched, fascinating look at a murderer who nearly went unpunished. A fascinating look at a murderer B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Meeting to be held about Silver Springs areaSilver Springs-area businesses and property owners have an opportunity to potentially make a lasting impact on the area where they live and work. The Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development is hosting a second public meeting on Aug. 30 to obtain input and recommendations from those business owners and residents for a Silver Springs community redevelopment plan. The meeting serves as the next step in the process the Marion County Board of County Commissioners initiated earlier this year to explore the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area, or CRA, in Silver Springs. At the meeting, attendees will be able to participate in the planning process for addressing deficiencies in Silver Springs to help improve the areas long-term vitality. Comments from the public meeting will be used to draft the redevelopment plan that officials will present to the County Commission later this fall for further consideration. The meeting will be held Aug. 30, 3012, at 6 p.m. in the Marion County Growth Management Training Room (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala). For more information, contact Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development Economic Development Coordinator Joseph Saucer at 352-4382608. Crafters WantedAre you a crafter and want a place to display and sell your work? The Cherrywood Craft show it just the place you want to be on Saturday, Oct. 13. Our show opens at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. in the clubhouse and is open to the public. Because there are few craft shows scheduled for that time, expect a larger crowd of shoppers looking for unique items; artful designs and hand crafted gifts. Nonresidents are also welcome to display their goods, so if you live some place other than Cherrywood, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675 to reserve your space. Shoppers will find everything from tote bags to jewelry; wind chimes to beaded angels; flowers to wine bottles and much more at the Cherrywood Craft Show. This event is open to the public so come one; come all and experience a special Cherrywood event. Special Note: The Cherrywood Veterans Club will be sponsoring a booth at the Craft Show to take donations of non-perishable food for Ritz Veterans Home. Ritz House provides veterans a place to restart their lives in comfortable surroundings with supportive personnel. When you come to the craft show, if you could, bring some canned goods to donate, you would be helping this very worthy cause. Comedy night at CherrywoodGet ready for a night of comedic genius as Rene Bray takes the stage in the Cherrywood Clubhouse for two performances. Rene has headlined at comedy clubs all across the United States as well as Canada and in the Caribbean. In addition, she was the first comedienne to entertain our troops in Guantanamo, Cuba. To her credit, Rene has opened for such people as Billy Ray Cyrus; Steppenwolf; the Red Hot Chili Peppers and REO Speedwagon. Rene has also appeared on Montel Williams; Geraldo; Jenny Jones and on ABCs 20/20. Rene has a unique combination of flavors coupled with an easy; comfortable delivery style that guarantees an evening of fun entertainment. She will be appearing on Oct. 8 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited so be sure to get your tickets to either of the two shows from Geri but I suggest you do so quickly. Comedy night is free to all Cherrywood residents courtesy of Chris and Cherrywood Property Management so make your plans now to come out and see this world class talent.

If you have an interest in taking on this all important mission, contact David Siegel at 352-390-3325 or the Sheriffs Office at 352-812-0853.Important Announcement about AARP Driving Class Great news for veterans and their families was just recently released.

Spotlight on Excellence Each month we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week, in honor of the Norm Pellerin Memorial Nine-Ball Tournament, we introduce long time resident, Pauline Pellerin. Pauline was born in Lewiston, Maine, the eldest of four children. She has sisters Rose of Lewiston and Mariette who lives in Texas. A younger brother, Richard, passed away last year. Attending school in Lewiston, Pauline graduated from St. Dominick High School. Prior to graduation she went roller skating with a friend. It was there that she was introduced to a young Marine veteran by the name of Norman Pellerin. He had served in the Korean War and while four years her senior, he fell hard for Pauline and she for him. They continued to date throughout her last year at school. Tragically, that same year Paulines mother passed away from a brain tumor. Since her dad was an over-the-road trucker in the logging industry, Paulines youngest sister had to be in the care of the convent during the week when her father was out of town. This was a blow to the family unity. Shortly after her graduation, Norm asked Pauline to marry him. As she remembers back, she told me that her family considered him kind of wild. She recalled nervously having to tell her father when they became engaged. She smiled and added, he took it pretty well I guess. Following their engagement, Pauline went to work for the phone company as an operator. She worked there for the first few years of her marriage. She then left to take a position as a receptionist for Geiger Brothers Company. Geiger Brothers publishes the Farmers Almanac. Norm took a job with Dr. Tchao Eye Clinic in Lewiston. He became an optometrist and stayed with that comPauline Pellerin pany for his entire working career of more than 30 years. During that time they had three children; Debbie, Tony, and Carol. Their Daughter Debbie works at a bank and is married to Ted Poliquin; daughter Carol is a school teacher married to Dean Celani and they both still live in Lewiston, Maine. Pauline spends a couple of months each summer with them, enjoying her grandchildren. Tony, their son, lives in Colorado with his wife Carlota, and works for the telephone company out there. Over the winter holidays, Pauline spends time with them so she gets to see her family often and play with her four grandchildren. As Norm neared retirement age, he informed Pauline that they were going to move to Florida. He was fed up with the ice and snow of the Maine winters. Pauline said, Well talk about it until one day when Norm came in to her office and asked her for her car key. Of course she asked why he wanted it to which he replied, I just sold your car. Were moving to Florida.

Island Trail T he fifth annual Norm Pellerin Nine-Ball Tournament was held Aug. 20 through 22, and what an event it was. For the first time in its history, the tournament featured lady shooters and also for the first time, there was a repeat winner. More than 25 players signed up and took part in the match that lasted for three days. It was the largest turnout for the tournament in its history and in addition, it saw some of the highest caliber pool shooting since its inception. Sandy Wilson and Judy Pniewski gave the men a run for their money, taking the game to their opponents. Both were warmly received and were given high praise for their skill and commitment. Because of their ground-breaking entry, we expect even more of our ladies to enter next year. Our winner for the contest was Larry Murray, whose name will be added to the Norm Pellerin Plaque in the poolroom. This is the second time that he has won with his first victory coming in 2009. In close championship rounds Larry beat out Dave Bragdon who came in second place, and newcomer to Cherrywood Mick James, who finished third. Congratulations to Larry on a hard-fought win against some stiff competition. Rich Hurley, who ran the tournament, is to be congratulated on the fine job he did in organizing this competition. He was assisted this year by scorekeepers Holly Bragdon; Ruth Hurley; Nan Brown and Donna James. They kept everything running Nine-ball tournament firsts and a second smoothly throughout the matches, and we thank all of them for their hard work and a great time. Note: See related information in the Spotlight on Excellence in this column.100 Days of Summer ContinuesGet ready for another night of fun; food; and frolic in September. Octoberfest is coming on Sept. 24. Not familiar with Octoberfest? Let me share a little information about this traditional Southern Germany tradition. More than 200 years ago, King Ludwig married a Bavarian girl. The entire town of Munchen was invited to join in the festivities in the meadow outside of the city. Well, they had such a good time, they decided to make it an annual event and Southern Bavaria, as well as many other places in the world, now enjoy drinking beer; dancing; eating good food and in general, partying their heads off. Cherrywood is joining in this fine tradition by bringing Octoberfest to our clubhouse. The band Northern Sounds will be supplying the German music as well as contemporary tunes to entertain and delight the guests. Theyve been here before and were well received. Food for the evening will be Bratwurst (Brochen) with all the fixings. Iced tea and lemonade will be available and ice cream for dessert. Everyone is welcome to bring their own beverages of choice to compliment the meal and to enhance your evening. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thanks to Chris Zacco and the Cherrywood Property Management, the 100 Days of Summer events are free to Cherrywood residents but tickets must be obtained from Geri. See her for your tickets and if you have guests who would like to attend, the cost is $12 each. Your ticket also makes you eligible for the door prize. Last month saw a record crowd for the Country Under the Sun celebration so get your tickets early. For sure you dont want to miss out on this party. Oh, and you might be wondering why Octoberfest is held in late September? Its because the weather is better in Germany at that time of year. Veterans Club meetingA very important Veterans Club meeting will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the clubhouse. If you are a veteran and have not joined the club, youre missing a lot. Every month we have a guest speaker who brings information of interest to all veterans; helpful benefit tips and many opportunities. This month death benefits will be discussed along with a variety of other items on the agenda. Following the meeting, everyone goes to the patio to share a social hour or so. The Veterans Club is a unique opportunity for those who served to share their interests and experiences as well as a chance to continue serving. Membership is just $5 and that is a one-time fee. There are no annual dues. Come out and share some quality time with your fellow veterans and see if you cant find great satisfaction in continuing your service to your community; your country and even your self. Movie nightSpend a night with your friends and neighbors on Sept. 4, laughing at the antics of The Three Stooges 2012. Hilarious classic slapstick comedy abounds when these characters come on screen to delight and entertain. Nobody doesnt like the Stooges. The movie is free; the popcorn and lemonade are free; and the laughter is non-stop. Bring your own snacks and beverages if you prefer and at 7 p.m. settle in for an evening of laugh-out-loud comedy in the clubhouse. Bocce Ball In September, every Saturday at 8 p.m. our Bocce Ball players return to the courts right behind the clubhouse for more fun and friendly competition. Play or watch your friends vie for bragging rights in this challenging and dynamic game; then sit and socialize over refreshments. Everyone brings something to the table whether its their own libations; snacks or great conversation. Dont miss this chance to compete and socialize with your friends. Trivia returnsIts back! Yes, the game that gives you a chance to test your knowledge on a wide variety of subjects with your team mates returns on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. Many of the same teams that played in July will be coming back again, but theres always room for new comers. If youve never played before, just show up and be assigned to a team; pay a dollar per person and put your knowledge to the test. The subjects vary from history to sports; from current events to entertainment and everything in between. This is a great night of socializing and getting an education in all things trivial.

Island Trail T he fifth annual Norm Pellerin Nine-Ball Tournament was held Aug. 20 through 22, and what an event it was. For the first time in its history, the tournament featured lady shooters and also for the first time, there was a repeat winner. More than 25 players signed up and took part in the match that lasted for three days. It was the largest turnout for the tournament in its history and in addition, it saw some of the highest caliber pool shooting since its inception. Sandy Wilson and Judy Pniewski gave the men a run for their money, taking the game to their opponents. Both were warmly received and were given high praise for their skill and commitment. Because of their ground-breaking entry, we expect even more of our ladies to enter next year. Our winner for the contest was Larry Murray, whose name will be added to the Norm Pellerin Plaque in the poolroom. This is the second time that he has won with his first victory coming in 2009. In close championship rounds Larry beat out Dave Bragdon who came in second place, and newcomer to Cherrywood Mick James, who finished third. Congratulations to Larry on a hard-fought win against some stiff competition. Rich Hurley, who ran the tournament, is to be congratulated on the fine job he did in organizing this competition. He was assisted this year by scorekeepers Holly Bragdon; Ruth Hurley; Nan Brown and Donna James. They kept everything running Nine-ball tournament firsts and a second smoothly throughout the matches, and we thank all of them for their hard work and a great time. Note: See related information in the Spotlight on Excellence in this column.100 Days of Summer ContinuesGet ready for another night of fun; food; and frolic in September. Octoberfest is coming on Sept. 24. Not familiar with Octoberfest? Let me share a little information about this traditional Southern Germany tradition. More than 200 years ago, King Ludwig married a Bavarian girl. The entire town of Munchen was invited to join in the festivities in the meadow outside of the city. Well, they had such a good time, they decided to make it an annual event and Southern Bavaria, as well as many other places in the world, now enjoy drinking beer; dancing; eating good food and in general, partying their heads off. Cherrywood is joining in this fine tradition by bringing Octoberfest to our clubhouse. The band Northern Sounds will be supplying the German music as well as contemporary tunes to entertain and delight the guests. Theyve been here before and were well received. Food for the evening will be Bratwurst (Brochen) with all the fixings. Iced tea and lemonade will be available and ice cream for dessert. Everyone is welcome to bring their own beverages of choice to compliment the meal and to enhance your evening. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thanks to Chris Zacco and the Cherrywood Property Management, the 100 Days of Summer events are free to Cherrywood residents but tickets must be obtained from Geri. See her for your tickets and if you have guests who would like to attend, the cost is $12 each. Your ticket also makes you eligible for the door prize. Last month saw a record crowd for the Country Under the Sun celebration so get your tickets early. For sure you dont want to miss out on this party. Oh, and you might be wondering why Octoberfest is held in late September? Its because the weather is better in Germany at that time of year. Veterans Club meetingA very important Veterans Club meeting will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the clubhouse. If you are a veteran and have not joined the club, youre missing a lot. Every month we have a guest speaker who brings information of interest to all veterans; helpful benefit tips and many opportunities. This month death benefits will be discussed along with a variety of other items on the agenda. Following the meeting, everyone goes to the patio to share a social hour or so. The Veterans Club is a unique opportunity for those who served to share their interests and experiences as well as a chance to continue serving. Membership is just $5 and that is a one-time fee. There are no annual dues. Come out and share some quality time with your fellow veterans and see if you cant find great satisfaction in continuing your service to your community; your country and even your self. Movie nightSpend a night with your friends and neighbors on Sept. 4, laughing at the antics of The Three Stooges 2012. Hilarious classic slapstick comedy abounds when these characters come on screen to delight and entertain. Nobody doesnt like the Stooges. The movie is free; the popcorn and lemonade are free; and the laughter is non-stop. Bring your own snacks and beverages if you prefer and at 7 p.m. settle in for an evening of laugh-out-loud comedy in the clubhouse. Bocce Ball In September, every Saturday at 8 p.m. our Bocce Ball players return to the courts right behind the clubhouse for more fun and friendly competition. Play or watch your friends vie for bragging rights in this challenging and dynamic game; then sit and socialize over refreshments. Everyone brings something to the table whether its their own libations; snacks or great conversation. Dont miss this chance to compete and socialize with your friends. Trivia returnsIts back! Yes, the game that gives you a chance to test your knowledge on a wide variety of subjects with your team mates returns on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. Many of the same teams that played in July will be coming back again, but theres always room for new comers. If youve never played before, just show up and be assigned to a team; pay a dollar per person and put your knowledge to the test. The subjects vary from history to sports; from current events to entertainment and everything in between. This is a great night of socializing and getting an education in all things trivial. Come out and enjoy.Bingo Everyone loves playing Bingo and especially at Cherrywood. You can win cash prizes; see your friends; enjoy a challenge and did I mention you can win cash? Youll love the even paced calling of our volunteers and sitting next to congenial neighbors while you play this game of chance and luck. Thursday nights at 7 p.m., bring your friends; bring your refreshments; buy some cards and yes, maybe win some cash. C HERRYWOOD ESTATES J E John Everlove SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE19 000C926

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS: THE MINISTER, HIS MISTRESS AND A HEARTLESS TEXAS MURDER BY KATHRYN CASEYT hrust violently from their comfort zone, the Dullin family of Waco Texas struggled to grasp the news that older daughter Kari Dullin Baker was deadand by her own hand. None of it made any sense, absolutely none of it. Not even when her sister Nancy tried to tell her on the telephone or now when Linda Dullin was surrounded by two of her three sisters and her oldest niece Lindsey. Linda knew that her sisters meant well and were only trying to help her but she could not endure any more pain at what they were suggesting when Nancy said, We dont believe Kari killed herself. You see, the other women had an advantage Linda didnt have. For years theyd known that Karis husband wasnt who he pretended to bea true man of God. Far from it; he was a predator of women. Though it would take weeks to persuade Linda and husband Jim that Kari was a murder victim, this determined little band of Karis aunts and nieces were not about to give up seeing justice served. Their suspicions were well founded. The suicide note had been typed on a computer, even the signature. Signs of lividity and a cold body contradicted Matts time line on the night of the incident. Then there was a noticeable lack of emotion evident even to the EMTs. And on the day of her supposed suicide, Kari had bragged about the wonderful interview that garnered her a new job. A loving mother, daughter and sister, she would never have left them of her own free will. For years, Baptist Minister Matt Baker had been fired from one pastoral position after another, usually because of a female complaint. Compounding the problem was that Baptist congregations were autonomous and background checks of ministers were rare. Kari was fiercely loyal to Matt, always taking his side and believing that the women were liars. Even so, shortly before her death she voiced suspicions about an affair between Matt and a young, beautiful divorcee. The small town police of Hewitt had done such a sloppy job of investigation that it would take years to piece together enough evidence to bring Matt to trial. This is a well-researched, fascinating look at a murderer who nearly went unpunished. A fascinating look at a murderer B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington Meeting to be held about Silver Springs areaSilver Springs-area businesses and property owners have an opportunity to potentially make a lasting impact on the area where they live and work. The Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development is hosting a second public meeting on Aug. 30 to obtain input and recommendations from those business owners and residents for a Silver Springs community redevelopment plan. The meeting serves as the next step in the process the Marion County Board of County Commissioners initiated earlier this year to explore the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area, or CRA, in Silver Springs. At the meeting, attendees will be able to participate in the planning process for addressing deficiencies in Silver Springs to help improve the areas long-term vitality. Comments from the public meeting will be used to draft the redevelopment plan that officials will present to the County Commission later this fall for further consideration. The meeting will be held Aug. 30, 3012, at 6 p.m. in the Marion County Growth Management Training Room (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala). For more information, contact Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development Economic Development Coordinator Joseph Saucer at 352-4382608. Crafters WantedAre you a crafter and want a place to display and sell your work? The Cherrywood Craft show it just the place you want to be on Saturday, Oct. 13. Our show opens at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. in the clubhouse and is open to the public. Because there are few craft shows scheduled for that time, expect a larger crowd of shoppers looking for unique items; artful designs and hand crafted gifts. Nonresidents are also welcome to display their goods, so if you live some place other than Cherrywood, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675 to reserve your space. Shoppers will find everything from tote bags to jewelry; wind chimes to beaded angels; flowers to wine bottles and much more at the Cherrywood Craft Show. This event is open to the public so come one; come all and experience a special Cherrywood event. Special Note: The Cherrywood Veterans Club will be sponsoring a booth at the Craft Show to take donations of non-perishable food for Ritz Veterans Home. Ritz House provides veterans a place to restart their lives in comfortable surroundings with supportive personnel. When you come to the craft show, if you could, bring some canned goods to donate, you would be helping this very worthy cause. Comedy night at CherrywoodGet ready for a night of comedic genius as Rene Bray takes the stage in the Cherrywood Clubhouse for two performances. Rene has headlined at comedy clubs all across the United States as well as Canada and in the Caribbean. In addition, she was the first comedienne to entertain our troops in Guantanamo, Cuba. To her credit, Rene has opened for such people as Billy Ray Cyrus; Steppenwolf; the Red Hot Chili Peppers and REO Speedwagon. Rene has also appeared on Montel Williams; Geraldo; Jenny Jones and on ABCs 20/20. Rene has a unique combination of flavors coupled with an easy; comfortable delivery style that guarantees an evening of fun entertainment. She will be appearing on Oct. 8 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited so be sure to get your tickets to either of the two shows from Geri but I suggest you do so quickly. Comedy night is free to all Cherrywood residents courtesy of Chris and Cherrywood Property Management so make your plans now to come out and see this world class talent. Camera Club The Shutterbugs will meet at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 7. President Gen Downs has an interesting presentation planned and on the 21st, the group plans a trip to Sholom Park. Everyone with an interest in photography, from novice to professional, is invited to attend in the library of the clubhouse. CERT TrainingOn Sept. 13, a new session of Community Emergency Response Team Training will begin at the Marion County Sheriffs Office. The office is located at 692 N.W. 30th Ave. in Ocala. This eight-session training program is available from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or from 6:30 until 9 p.m. Only one class can be missed in the series and the CPR class as well as the last class of the session 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 is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. If you have an interest in taking on this all important mission, contact David Siegel at 352-390-3325 or the Sheriffs Office at 352-812-0853.Important Announcement about AARP Driving Class Great news for veterans and their families was just recently released.

There are openings for two or three more people to serve. If you would like to help out, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com or give your information to Geri at the clubhouse. You can make a difference and ease the pain of a Veterans family; please help out. Spotlight on Excellence Each month we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week, in honor of the Norm Pellerin Memorial Nine-Ball Tournament, we introduce long time resident, Pauline Pellerin. Pauline was born in Lewiston, Maine, the eldest of four children. She has sisters Rose of Lewiston and Mariette who lives in Texas. A younger brother, Richard, passed away last year. Attending school in Lewiston, Pauline graduated from St. Dominick High School. Prior to graduation she went roller skating with a friend. It was there that she was introduced to a young Marine veteran by the name of Norman Pellerin. He had served in the Korean War and while four years her senior, he fell hard for Pauline and she for him. They continued to date throughout her last year at school. Tragically, that same year Paulines mother passed away from a brain tumor. Since her dad was an over-the-road trucker in the logging industry, Paulines youngest sister had to be in the care of the convent during the week when her father was out of town. This was a blow to the family unity. Shortly after her graduation, Norm asked Pauline to marry him. As she remembers back, she told me that her family considered him kind of wild. She recalled nervously having to tell her father when they became engaged. She smiled and added, he took it pretty well I guess. Following their engagement, Pauline went to work for the phone company as an operator. She worked there for the first few years of her marriage. She then left to take a position as a receptionist for Geiger Brothers Company. Geiger Brothers publishes the Farmers Almanac. Norm took a job with Dr. Tchao Eye Clinic in Lewiston. He became an optometrist and stayed with that comPauline Pellerin pany for his entire working career of more than 30 years. During that time they had three children; Debbie, Tony, and Carol. Their Daughter Debbie works at a bank and is married to Ted Poliquin; daughter Carol is a school teacher married to Dean Celani and they both still live in Lewiston, Maine. Pauline spends a couple of months each summer with them, enjoying her grandchildren. Tony, their son, lives in Colorado with his wife Carlota, and works for the telephone company out there. Over the winter holidays, Pauline spends time with them so she gets to see her family often and play with her four grandchildren. As Norm neared retirement age, he informed Pauline that they were going to move to Florida. He was fed up with the ice and snow of the Maine winters. Pauline said, Well talk about it until one day when Norm came in to her office and asked her for her car key. Of course she asked why he wanted it to which he replied, I just sold your car. Were moving to Florida.

It will air daily following FYI at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Aug. 31 to Sept. 7. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadway announces a cast change for its October play, Squad Room Blues. Lou Winkelman for personal reasons has stepped down from his role as Lt. Mootfowl. Lou for some years has been one of our featured stars in both theatre groups. He is exceptionally talented and we will miss not only his expertise in this role but the wisdom and guidance he has brought to his fellow cast members. We are fortunate at this point in rehearsals to have an equally talented member of our group step into this role at this late date. Lenny Klatt, who along with his wife DiAnne, have been involved in not only many of our Oak Run plays but in others around the area, including the Ocala Civic Theatre. Lenny is a lawyer with offices just down State Rod 200 a little way and we marvel at how he can devote so much time to our productions and carry on a busy law practice as well. You know the old saying, If you want to get a job done, find a busy person. Lenny sure fits that mold. Rehearsals continue to improve each passing day, and Oak Runners are in for a treat. Tickets are selling briskly. Sales in September will be on Sept. 8 from 8 to 10 a.m., Sept. 12 from 8:30 to 9 a.m., Sept. 11 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sept. 22 from 8 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 6:45 p.m., all in the Orchid Club. There will be one sales date in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 3 from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Remember, if you cannot make a public ticket sale, you wont be left at the gate. Call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 and she will accommodate you. Our two Oak Run theatre groups are considering consolidating into a single group but continue to put on two plays a year. We will hold a joint business meeting in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. at which time we will vote in regard to proceeding with the merger of the two clubs. As a practical matter, most of our members belong to both groups and we share equipment, props, costumes, etc,. so it seems consolidation into a single group is the way to go. Medical Team meetingThe Oak Run Medical Team will meet Monday, Sept. 10, at 3 p.m. at the Island Club. This is a very important meeting to prepare for the annual Health Fair scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 25, at Palm Grove. Please mark both dates on your calendars and join us at the meeting.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com T he Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to fix it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, D.C. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to fix it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, D.C. area and view it as a fixer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can fix it and fix it for good. All these politicians have fixed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him fixed. The results are the same in both situations. Then my wife made this observation. If these politicians are so all fired up about fixing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only fix hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The first thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They firmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there are always those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more benefit than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally significant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal ramifications. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

The original idea was to have a street parade demonstrating the strength of trade and labor organizations. Now many consider the holiday to be the end of summer while others just welcome a day off work. Anticipating the coming holiday, some locals held a parade on Pun Alley to leave some interesting stories. Sleepless A harried business executive went to his physician to get a prescription for sleeping pills, only to find that he was allergic to sedatives. What about some of this twilight sleep Ive read about? he asked the doctor. Oh, thats only for labor, was the reply. What! exclaimed the executive, havent you anything for management? Clean sweepA young man reported for his first day of work at a supermarket. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and gave him a broom and said, Your first job will be to sweep the store. But, Im a FSU graduate, the young man replied indignantly, I even played football there. Oh, Im sorry. I didnt know that, said the manager. Here, give me the broom, I better show you how.Laboring A good union man believes that time heals all wounds. Time and a half heals them a little faster. If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day weekend. Iowa pig farmers have a worry that the mad cow disease may be transmitted to pigs resulting in mad pig disease. In other words, they are worried about the daze of swine neurosis. Hes a gunner in a canning factory. He shells peas. The ushers at a hit musical cheered and stamped their feet at each curtain call. A patron said, You must be crazy about this show. One usher said, Two more curtain calls and we go into overtime. I joined an international union; now I can be out of work all over the world. Twenty years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, and Steve Jobs. Now we have no cash, no hope, and no jobs. Please dont let Kevin Bacon die. An accountant was hired by the circus but they had to fire him because he juggled the books. Hes one of the big guns of the industry; hes been fired six times. Card dealers at blackjack tables have been replaced by machines called auto dealers. Some people are still willing to do an honest days work; but they want a weeks pay for it. You really are getting old when your work is less fun and your fun is more work. I do most of my work sitting down. Thats where I shine. Its not just the work I enjoy, confided the cab driver, its the people I run into.Psychic hotline The company had a phone line that was only used for outgoing fax calls. If any calls came in on this line John knew it would be a wrong number. It got to the point where as soon as the phone rang, he would pick up and say, Psychic Hotline. Im sorry, but youve dialed the wrong number. The caller would often reply with something like, But I didnt even ask to speak to anyone yet. How did you know I dialed the wrong . Oh! (Click). The end So your husband has got a job at last, said a neighbor of Mrs. Smith. Yes, he has, replied Mrs. Smith. It is hard work and he says it is killing him. But thank goodness, its permanent.

Billy Bob replied, I just got hired by the city to go around and remove all the money from parking meters. I started today. The bartender congratulated him and said, If youre so happy just over having this new job, I can just imagine how happy youll be when you get your paycheck. Billy Bob looked at the bartender with a wondrous look on his face, pulled out a handful of quarters from his pocket, and said, You mean theyll pay me too?

the work, or more often by grants from Tallahassee. We are in an election year. If one or more of our candidates for our state legislature could see an opportunity to provide a solution to a problem that troubles a large number of down home voters, maybe we could get a bill to fund such a study. The school selected could also show the rest of our country that here in Florida, we do more on our campuses than play football. Bill Farthing Ocala Who is this man? There is no question we have huge differences of opinion among our neighbors and I respect our right to disagree. I do congratulate Harold Imgrund on his excellent letter last week, he included pure honest facts, not just opinions that have no bearing on a candidates qualification. It will be interesting to see how readers respond to his letter, for I cant understand how any patriotic American approves of this direction for our country. I believe Who is this Man? is the most important question we should have in considering who we want to elect to office, especially the president of the United States. To determine this, we must consider what determines his value system, what makes him who he is. As individuals, we are the result of many things including the following: our parents, who shaped us from day one; the one person we look up to more than any other; where we were raised (this is even more important than where we were born); where we were educated; our religious heritage, including what church we attended ; who were our best friends; who were our mentors; what I was taught about American history; who are my heroes; and the list goes on. I suggest we do not know most of this information about Obama, in fact we know less about him than any president in our history. The media prints every little bit of Romneys history, trying to promote class warfare by making a big issue of his being among the one percent. We will never get much more information about Obama through the liberal media. We had the opportunity to see the new documentary about Obama which answers the above questions from birth to the present and a glimpse into the future. Regardless of your feelings for Obama, love him or hate him, you need to see this film. It is well done, sticks to verifiable incidents, and answers the question, Who Is This Man? Once you can answer this question, you will be in position to cast an educated vote. Americas future depends on it! Wayne Rackley Ocala Medicare misrepresented by GOPIts clear, the Romney/Ryan ticket, is misrepresenting its Medicare cuts to the public. Of course this is nothing new. There never, and I mean never, has been a Republican president who has balanced the budget, created and passed bills for the middle class, or has been truthful to the American people. For example, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Herbert Hoover. and on and on and on. Even President Johnson, after President Lincoln was assisinated, let the northern carpetbaggers roam freely through the south and disrupt reconstruction. Having spent my life in the health care, corporate and political arena, its sad that the Republicans can sell so many people on all of their unstable, illogical programs. Now, heres something to think about. 90 percent of the population vote based on what they are told by politicians, not what they actually know. The average American, and average is not too bright, is not well informed on any of the issues, and never will be. Another thing Ive said before. Ohio, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Kentucky auto workers should be thanking President Obama, who saved the auto industry and probably their retirement packages while the Republicans condemed and still condemn the stimulus package for the auto industry. It was hilarious to listen to Paul Ryan speak at the largest retirement community in the world, the Villages, and use his mother as a crutch, when all the time he wants to destroy her Medicare and Social Security, the Villagers ate it up. Yes, Obama would cut Medicare spending but not benefits, $716 billion as would the Romney/Ryan ticket, but its how they would do it that counts. Obama will not cut benefits but would crack down on double billing by insurance companies and health care providers. Double billing is one of the worst abuses to any federal program. Been there, seen it. The Romney/Ryan plan would, in effect, end Medicare as we know it by replacing it with a voucher program that would leave the average American with $6,400 in extra costs within 10 years. Many of those on Medicare right now, would be affected by this change, even though the Republicans say the current Medicare recipients wouldnt be affected. If Paul Ryan had his way, there would be no more Medicare or Medicaid and no Social Security at all and this is well documented. How does he explain that to his mother? I can tell you Medicare fraud is happening right here in Marion County, as I personally have two Medicare fraud complaints sent to Medicare. Having been a Medicare fraud auditor beginning with the advent of Medicare, I know of what I speak. Oh yes, I would encourage everyone to read, listen and research, mainly research, reliable sources of both of these plans, and then you will quickly realize the Obama plan is the only way to go. In 1964, the naysayers said Medicare wouldnt work and look at us now. Its saved everyone over 65. The Republicans still want to destroy it. In addition, the Romney ticket would increase the deficit through another tax break, by reducing the wealthiest Americans tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. Congressman Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, would cut corporate and capital gains taxes and in doing so, there would be no possible way of balancing the budget until 2040. As an afterthought, Paul Ryan does not believe in giving women the right to their own bodies when it comes to abortion, and he is also against any form of contraception.. Finally, Ryan is much stronger than Romney, but is still a liability to the Republican ticket. Romneys wife tells him what to do. She said in a CNN-TV interview, he couldnt do it without me, he just couldnt do it. Now two liabilities dont make a plus two but a minus two. Something on the order of the movie Dumb and Dumber. We should remember Romney is the wont-give-it-up candidate. If you dont win at first try, try again, but we cant sit back and let Romney keep trying forever, just end it now. Send him back to whatever state he lives in or which ever country he keeps his money. Remember, he was a liability to Massachusetts and used Bain Capital for his own ends, so dont let him do it to the country. A vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket is a vote that would ensure Americas downfall. Bill Ford Ocala The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the July meeting, members talked about the upcoming elections on Aug. 14 and Nov. 4. The excitement is palpable as members recognized the many activities that must take place in an election year. It was a meeting for reflection as well, one of review of the presidents achievements on behalf of the American people and his continued determination to fulfill the promises that he made three plus years ago. In this mood Dr. Enid Jones presented an argument on why the banking system had to be saved as there has been so much debate on whether the banks are now serving the communities that provided funding for them when needed. The bottom line: without the financial intermediaries (the banks) the economy as we know it would have collapsed. Using an example of the marginal income of $1 circulating at a spending rate of 90 percent of each payment she showed that the dollar circulating from buyer to seller can generate a total income $8.47 after approximately 20 individuals had taken part in some form of transaction. The significance of this spending pattern is that for every cent spent a product is exchanged which is in turn generates more income as the product has to be manufactured thus using all the factors of production, land, capital, and most importantly, labor or workers (individuals such as your neighbors). The balance of unspent cents becomes savings which are usually placed in banks. If the imagination is stretched beyond $1.00 to several dollars circulating in a country of about 311 million people, then the increase in income is beyond imagination. Furthermore, market transactions are usually done with checks, credit cards and debit cards. These means of trade would be impossible without banks to act as clearinghouses for each other since we all do not have accounts in the same bank. Another very important function of the banking industry, especially commercial banks, occurs in the international trade sector. The transfer of goods and services between countries usually requires a letter of credit from the bank of the buyer in one country in collaboration with the bank of the seller in another country. The letter of credit is a sign of good faith and a guarantee that payment will be made once goods are delivered. International trade is not possible if there is no credibility in the banking system of all the countries involved. While the government itself does not produce goods and it is in fact the private businesses that carry out most of the trade the confidence provided by the government supports the banking system and in turn international trade in all areas of the economy. The fallout of a weak banking system includes loss of confidence in the currency, the U.S. dollar; hence even domestic trade would be compromised. Yes, the bank bail-out was necessary and even essential! The downside of course is that while the commercial sector is stabilizing the assistance for individuals has been less successful but would have been worse without the banks. This is Democrats in Marion Oaks hold meeting not to say other institutions cannot perform the banking functions but they would have to be in place before any collapse. Another topic that was addressed was the referenda on 1 mill real property tax increase that was included in the August election ballot. The discussion centered on the impact of the increase to the individual home and business owner. One mill means 1/1000 of the dollar. So if the assessed value (not necessarily the same as the market value) less an amount for homestead and other exemptions of the home or business is $100,000 then the increase in tax payment will be $100.00 for the year. This seemed a small price to pay for increased funding to our schools in Marion County to provide enhanced opportunities and capital funds for building schools for the success for our children. WHOS ON FIRST? Abbott and Costello tribute show comes to the Circle Square Cultural Center Bill Riley and Joe Ziegler transform themselves into Bud Abbott and Lou Costello through an authentic recreation of the teams mannerisms and vocal stylings. They perform with pinpoint accuracy many of the vaudeville and burlesque routines made famous by Bud and Lou on stage, screen, radio and television, including the classic baseball routine, Whos On First? The duo has performed as Abbott and Costello since 1994 for various corporations, private parties, civic groups, fund raisers and on radio and television. Jason Crutchley originally began working with the team as their sound engineer and announcer in 2002. In 2004, the duo became a trio, as Jason joined Bill and Joe on stage as Scoop Fields Ace Press Agent. Jason also appears as various other characters in a number of routines. Prior to joining Riley and Ziegler, Crutchley, of Pylesville, MD, had worked behind the scenes in several North Harford High School productions as prop master and stage hand. He then went on to act in school musicals and stage shows, including several comedic lead roles.

Cindy Grimes, a facilitator for Devereux Kids, will speak on behalf of childrens advocacy initiatives at the next womens gathering of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County when the group holds a potluck luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the Greater Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, 515 N.W. Sixth Terrace. Ms. Lois Lilley, chairlady of the Missionary Ministry, will welcome guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dr. George W. Lee Fellowship Hall adjacent to the sanctuary. Parking and entry is on the north side of the building. Ms. Grimes, a very warm and engaging speaker, will introduce attendees to an overview of programs offered by Devereux Kids in an effort to help observers identify and take appropriate action to help when they witness children suffering from abuse or neglect. Devereux Kids, established in 1999, is a self-supporting primary prevention and diversion program which offers community learning programs and facilitation services to teach positive intervention and advocacy skills to neighborhood groups, faith communities, grassroots organizations and interested residents. All our efforts to build an ever more peaceful and respectful community among peoples of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds will prove meaningless if we allow the most fragile and voiceless among us to suffer according to Delphine Herbert, current president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County. The statistics for the state of Florida are alarming and getting worse in every important measurement of childrens well-being education, health family support and community care. Our lawmakers and policymakers are not responding. We as women and as people of faith must become ever more powerful advocates on behalf of our children. Everyones future depends upon it.

E The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: How energy efficient (and comfortable) is underfloor heating, sometimes known as radiant heating? Marcy Dell, Boston, MA Underfloor radiant heating involves under laying the floor with a hot element or tubing that transfers heat into the room via infrared radiation and convection, obviating the need for forced or blowing air. According to the U.S. Department of Energys Energy Savers website, radiant heating has a number of advantages over other forms of heat distribution: It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts. It is also flexible as it can run off of a variety of energy sources: Gas, oil, wood, solar and other sources or combinations thereof can feed radiant systems. And radiant heating is a good choice for those with severe allergies as no potentially irritating particles get blown around the room. Several aspects of radiant heating make it more energy efficient. For starters, the uniform heat distribution over the entire surface of a floor heats the lower half of the room, enveloping inhabitants in warmth at a lower overall temperaturein some cases up to five degrees Fahrenheit coolerthan a conventional heating system. Radiators and other forms of point heating circulate heat inefficiently and hence need to run for longer periods to obtain comfort levels, reports the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNet). They draw cold air across the floor and send warm air up to the ceiling, where it then falls, heating the room from the top down, creating drafts and circulating dust and allergens. RESNet adds that radiant systems transmit heat on average some 15 percent more efficiently than conventional radiators. The efficiency gains can be magnified significantly with good insulation and a well-designed system. While tearing out old heating systems and/or replacing decent existing flooring might be overkill for the sake of moving to radiant heat, those embarking on new building projects or contemplating major renovations should certainly consider it. According to TLC Networks Green Living Guide, there are two main types of radiant heating, electric and hydronic. In the former, heated wires installed in the floor radiate heat upward. This type of radiant heat is most commonly used to retrofit a single roomespecially a bathroom or kitchenin an older house or building. Meanwhile, hydronic radiant heating, whereby heated water is forced through tubes under the floor, is more often designed into a new structure from the get-go, and is more energy efficient overall. TLC points out that while radiant heat is definitely more efficient in smaller, snug homes with lower roofs, it might not always be the greenest solution in homes with bigger rooms: In some scenarios it can be less energy efficient than forced-air heating. TLC recommends consulting with a reputable heating contractor to see if radiant heating is a sensible way to go. Of course, pairing a radiant heating system with an energy efficient EnergySTAR-approved programmable thermostat can indeed save households hundreds of dollars a year on home heating bills while keeping inhabitants warmer all year long. Many states offer financial incentives to upgrade home and commercial heating systems in ways that boost energy efficiency. Check out the free Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) to find out what kinds of tax rebates or other incentives might be available in your neck of the woods. CONTACTS: Energy Savers, www.energysavers.gov; RESNet, www.resnet.us; TLC Network Green Guide, http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/green-living.htm; DSIRE Database, www.dsireusa.org.Dear EarthTalk: Are there certain brands or retail stores where sustainable furniture options can be had? And what should I look for when shopping for greener furniture? W. Cary, Trenton, NJ While we now opt often for greener cars, appliances, household cleaners and food to up the sustainability quotient of our lifestyles, the furniture we spend all day and night in close contact with is often far from eco-friendly. The vast majority of sofas, chairs, beds and other upholstered furniture we love to lounge on contain potentially carcinogenic formaldehyde and/or toxic flame retardants and stain resistors that have been linked to developmental and hormonal maladies. And much of the wood used in desks, chairs, tables and the like (as well as in the frames of upholstered furniture) comes from unsustainably harvested lumber which contributes to the deforestation of tropical rainforests. But today, thanks to increased consumer awareness and demand, there are more green choices in furniture available than ever before. A good place to start the search for that perfect couch or chair is the website of the Sustainable Furniture Council (SFC), a nonprofit formed in 2006 to help develop solid standards and certification processes within the home furnishings industry. The organization has become a leading information source and network of some 400 green furniture makers and related retailers, suppliers and designers as well as other non-profits. Consumers looking for greener furniture can browse SFCs membership list which features contact information and website links accordingly. Buyers beware: Just because a furniture maker is listed with SFC doesnt mean it eschews all chemicals or unsustainably harvested wood entirely, but only that it is making strides in that direction. Consumers should still be knowledgeable about which green features they are looking for and/or which kinds of materials to avoid. Of course, with something like furniture you really need to see and feel it in order to decide whether it will work in your space. Eco-conscious consumers making the rounds at local furniture stores should ously, the writers eyesight (or maybe its his hindsight) fails to accept the fact that Republicans are pretty good people and can deliver tit for tat. The truly sorry bit is that the media is so biased in its presentation of the news (?) as it continues to distribute that kind of garbage and, in so doing, continues to divide the country. The writer says he lived on this earth since Hoover was the president. Ive lived on this earth a little longer than he has. I was alive when Calvin Coolidge was the president. Except for the last few years, its been a good place to live. So, it would seem the writer and I should have many things in common. He was a musician and I was a member of my churchs catechism choir, until my monotone forced the director to relieve me of my responsibilities. He was a sports information director I was a player on a Big Ten basketball team before serving in World War II. After service, I played football and baseball, as well as basketball, at a small church-oriented college. Again, to his credit, he evidently is a good wood carver. The photos appear to display real workmanship. Hes got me there. I cant match that skill. My work was centered in factory management. I was responsible, during my career, to manage and direct the work of others as many as 6,800 employees during the assignment. I can match him in the number of work locations. I put in time at Bettendorf, Iowa, Moline and East Mole, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chicago, Illinois, Memphis, Tennessee, Mattoon, Illinois, Portland, Oregon, Winchester, Kentucky and had two satellite manufacturing operations in Canada. So, I guess I am pretty familiar with what a lot of people have on their minds. And he is a veteran I thank him for his service on the USS Leyte CV. I, too, served. I saw my first aircraft carrier (the Ben Franklin) while at anchor as the invasion fleet formed in the Ulithian Atoll for the landings of Okinawa. The Leyte had managed to sail to that anchorage after having been severely damaged while attacking the Japanese homeland. It was anchored next to the hospital ship, MercyY, or maybe it was the Comfort. How anyone survived on that damaged vessel was miraculous. I was a Marine (and always will be). I drove a tank, and then I commanded a platoon of tanks during the forgotten war Korea. The Aug. 3 and 24 writer was a hospital auditor I had a fairly compatible position chairman of the board of a 400-bed hospital Apparently, he is still a golfer. I beat my age. His brief bio, appearing in the S.W. Neighbors brochure, states he was a good friend of Red Auerbach and of Bob Evans. Well, my wife and I sat down with Big Jim Thompson, a former governor of Illinois, and his wife at a mansion dinner, along with six other couples after attending a governor-appointed regulatory board meeting. And I played basketball, while in Beijing, China, with the 5th Marine Regt. All-Stars along with such recognizable names as Andy Phillips, Alvin Dark, Jack Maddox, Chet Johnson and other. I met John Sherman Cooper, one of the most respected Kentucky senators. So, we can all drop names. They dont cut water. In that same Aug. 24 issue of the Citizen, the writer took issue with Ann Romney, the primary reason I have written this note aside from hoping that some time I would catch a column from some other name dropped and disoriented political individual. He says, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Why should she? Michelle Obama has secreted her graduate dissertation in the hallowed halls of that famous liberal eastern university. I should think that a single individuals dissertation is considerably less important than a taxpayers filing, even though that dissertation is reportedly not consistent with a democratic society. Its not the writers business to speculate on what is included in that report. A tax return is private property even though it has most assuredly been amply reviewed by government IRS personnel. It is the U.S. governments responsibility to verify the authenticity of the filing. Besides, Im not one of those who believes that a professional football player should receive more money for his services that a cardiac surgeon who saves lives. A working individual should be compensated for the worth he (or she) brings to an organization. Shuffling paper, making speeches, bobbing up airplane boarding ramps, violating the Constitution, bowling to foreign leaders, etc., and giving the nation away will never get this nation on its feet. Unfortunately, the other writer does not see the trees for the forest. Remember Abe Lincoln? He said, in part, at Gettysburg, that his nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth. The current president doesnt subscribe to those everlasting true words. Only a failed government can give money to an individual who is able but does, in fact, not week work and does nothing to deserve compensation. But then, maybe hes right: We should all just sit back and wait for the gift and certainly, perform no work. It isnt important a few trillion more in the hole is nothing. The president just has to run the presses and mail the checks. Is it at all possible that he and his followers are beating the wrong drums? Robert J. Gildea Oak RunBug control neededNo-see-um, biting midge, punkie, sand fly, or ceratopogonidae; no matter what you may call them, these tiny flying insects have been a plague in Florida households for years. They are kin to the mosquito in that the female requires blood from a mammal to complete her reproduction cycle. They take flight at dusk and dawn and seem to prefer the hairy heads of men for their blood source. No commercial product that promises household control of these pests is available and all home remedies involve placing open containers of various materials with strong odors around the house. We need some research on bug control. Industrial concerns could do it, if there was a large market with a large profit opportunity. But there may be a better and less expensive way. The universities in our state conduct research on many projects for many organizations. This research must be funded, usually by the organization that will benefit by Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 Underfloor heating: How energy efficient is it?

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com W e dont believe Missouri Congressman and Senate candidate Todd Akin committed a gaffe when he was asked if he would support abortions for women who have been raped. He said: It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, thats really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. The congressmans legitimate rape quote should rank among the most awkward comments in the history of the English language. It wasnt clear enough to qualify as an outbreak of hoof-inmouth disease. We think he said what he intended to say without emphasizing what he really meant. Mr. Akin holds a degree in engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a degree in www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, August 31, 2012 T here are little things in life than can have a major effect on your concentration, your thought process, your lifestyle. Last week, my cell phone died. I wont tell you the brand, but this cell phone could do more things than just be a phone. Still, you had to maneuver around the screen with a little button, then press that button to make your phone do anything. If you wanted to type something, the keyboard was so small that a kindergartener probably would have been frustrated. It was probably just a battery, but somehow I remembered that years ago, when I got into the plan I was on, I was told that after two years I was entitled to a new phone if I signed up again for two years. Since those first two years had long since passed, I decided to find out what benefits awaited me. So I went to my providers store, and it turns out that I would get a credit toward a new phone. Phones cost so much now that they couldnt keep giving them away, I guess. So I took the plunge. I got a new phone, and I paid very, very little for it, which is good. I must say, its only been a few days, but so far Ive learned how to turn it on, turn it off, make a call and receive a call. Hows that for just a few days? This is one of those phones that you just touch the screen and it performs whatever function you touch. I havent figured out how to lock the screen yet, so I dont accidentally touch something, but I will. Honest. I found out that I can browse the Internet, send and receive email, use it as a GPS so I can find out where I am (hey, Im a man, I never ask for directions), listen to music and do all sorts of fun things with games. And now, I can even (gasp!) text. To get to the keyboard, you slide it out from under the screen and turn your phone sideways. In an amazing bit of technology, whatever is on your screen also turns sideways, saving you from a stiff neck. Sheer genius. Then there are apps. Im assuming that is short for applications, but you know what they say about people who assume things. I found several apps on my phone, but Im still learning how to use them. On The Weather Channel on Saturday morning, Stephanie Abrams was in Key West getting ready for the hurricane, and she talked to someone from the Red Cross about an app that they had available. Trouble is, for dunces like me, she never said how to get that app. Doesnt she know that people like me need lots of stepby-step guidance? The people at the store were very nice. They downloaded all my contacts from my old phone. They even transferred my ringtone, which is music from 50 years ago. Its a song called Meet the Mets. Those who know me probably already guessed that. So Im going through the abbreviated owners manual, which most companies evidently now expect you to read online, and trying to learn a lot of things. But I have to cut this short. My phone is ringing I think. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

L abor Day isnt celebrated much these days as it was originally intended, which was to honor the working people of this country. Next Mondays holiday, the first Monday in September, used to be a big day for labor, particularly unions, to honor the workers who built America into the large industrial complex it is today. But with many of those jobs gone, either vanished or sent overseas, the holiday has lost its luster, and its hard to convince young people of it being anything other than just another day off, marking the traditional end of summer. In many parts of the country, school starts the day after Labor Day. Summer vacation is over and its time to hit the books. Up north, some apartment complexes and communities that opened their pools on Memorial Day close them after Labor Day, even if the temperature is still hovering around 90. Temperatures eventually start to turn a little cooler, a warning that winter is not too far away, even though fall has not yet begun. Of course, here in Florida, the end of summer is still far away. Were more concerned about an active hurricane month that anything else to do with the weather. So millions of people will celebrate Labor Day on Monday, without giving much thought as to why it is called that. Many of us had parents and grandparents who toiled as laborers, helping this country make advances during the 20th Century. Its a lot easier for us to remember them and their contributions. So if you have a chance, talk to a younger person about Labor Day and what it means. Workers are what made this country great, and if we lose that work ethic, we could be in trouble down the road. But, as usual, we leave you with this warning. If youre traveling this coming weekend to celebrate the holiday, please drive carefully. We want you back as readers next week. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Labor Day losing some of its meaning What happens if I push this button? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What politicians mean isnt always what they say Sanity and guns Andrew Kramer of The New York Times reported. Russians can buy only a long-barrel firearm if they have a police permit that requires a clean criminal record, a gun safety course and a medical certificate of sanity. Thats right: a medical certificate of sanity something American politicians dare not dream of, let alone enact, under the intimidating shadow of the gun lobby. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAnswering a letterIn your Aug. 3 issue, a submission from an altogether too frequently published writer appeared in which he took issue with an unidentified ad (published somewhere) concerning Senator Bill Nelson. He carries on, the Republicans will do anything to further their cause and the Republicans tell lies to try and bring him down lies were the thing that got us into a war with Iraq by a Republican named George W. Bush. Im not sure Nelson could tell a lie. After he gets the words out of his mouth I doubt anyone could understand what his affected so-called southern drawl had said. Think how awful it would be if he noticed several people sitting on a railroad track as a train was approaching. Hed never get the warning out of his mouth in time. Unfortunately hes just another non-liar, or so says the writer. But in fairness to Senator Nelson, hes nowhere, thankfully, in the same category as Representative Pelosi and Senator Reid. Has anyone ever lied and said the opposition party increased the national debt by trillions of dollars, but continues to side step and hide the opportunities to reduce that debt which has saddled this country with that debt for years to come unless something changes? Of course, that position assumes their party Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED divinity studies from Coventry Theological Seminary. We doubt either school offers an elective in Gynecology 101. Opinions from around the world about Congressman Akins half suggestion that there are two kinds of rape have been various. A comment in the British Guardian newspaper suggested that by using the word legitimate, Mr. Akin was bending the word rape to sound less rapey. Calling Congressman Akins comments a mistake of words and of heart, the North American editor for the British Broadcasting Company dismissed Akins opinion as a politician peddling pregnancy-by-rape theories which date back to the 13th century. One of the old wives tales of that time was that pregnancy wouldnt have occurred if the woman hadnt enjoyed the rape. More professionally, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists called Mr. Akins statement medically offensive and dangerous to between 10,000 and 15,000 pregnant women who request abortions annually because of rape or incest. Mr. Akin seems to doubt those numbers. Gail Collins, who writes for the New York Times, was on the right trail about what Mr. Akin meant. Collins said Mr. Akin exposed the phoniness of the rape and incest exceptions which are used by some anti-abortionists to make their opposition appear more moderate. Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Diologues, wrote a note to Mr. Akin saying his assumption is that women and their experiences are not to be trusted. Her observation was right on! Mr. Akin was dismissing the annual rape and incest statistics of the Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He was suggesting that rape and incest exceptions just encourage women carrying undesired pregnancies to claim an abortion entitlement by lying about the circumstances of the conception in other words what he would call an illegitimate rape. Since the Rowe v. Wade abortion decision in 1973, some 300 human life amendments have been introduced in Congress. So far as we know, none suggests there are two kinds of rape legitimate and illegitimate. is squeaky clean no lies or offensive statements containing words like their current selection felon in referring to the opposition candidate. It seems the Democrats would rather let possible remedies remain on the Congressional way back burners and blame the Republicans than be a constructive force to implement creditable change.

Thursday, Sept. 13 Federal retirees to gatherThe National Association of Retired Federal Employees, Chapter 2279 of Ocala, and their spouses, will meet at the Olive Garden Restaurant, Sept. 13, at 1 p.m. for lunch and a meeting afterward. 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.

Call 352-690-7323 for tickets. CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 More on Pages 6-7 keep a few key questions in mind for salespersons. Does the piece in question contain formaldehyde, flame retardants or stain resistant sprays? Is the fabric used certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard program (GOTS, which mandates that at least 70 percent of fibers are derived from organic sources and do not contain chemical dyes or other additives)? Is the wood used certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as sustainably harvested? Does the piece contain any parts or pieces that come from bamboo or reclaimed wood or recycled metal or plastic? And is it easy to disassemble into reusable or recyclable parts if it needs to be replaced down the line? If the salesperson doesnt know the answers, chances are the piece does not pass environmental muster. Limiting your search to brick-and-mortar and Internetbased retailers that specialize in green products is one way to reduce the amount of research and self-education needed, especially because salespersons in such stores are usually up-to-speed on the latest and greatest in sustainable furnishings. Some leading national furniture chains that carry a sizeable inventory of sustainable goods include Crate and Barrel, Room and Board and West Elm, but many more single store eco-friendly furniture stores exist across the country. Some leading online green furniture retailers include Eco-Friendly Modern Living, Furnature, InMod, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, SmartDeco, Southcone and Viesso.CONTACTS: SFC, www.sustainablefurnishings.org; FSC, www.fsc.org; GOTS, www.global-standard.org; Eco-Friendly Modern Living, www.eco-friendlymodernliving.com; Furnature, www.furnature.com; InMod, www.inmod.com; Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, www.mgbwhome.com; SmartDeco, www.smartdecofurniture.com; Southcone, www.southcone.com; Viesso, www.viesso.com.E arth T alk is written and edited by R oddy Scheer and D oug M oss and is a registered trademark of E T he E n v ironmental M aga z ine ( www emaga z ine com ).

As she told me of this incident, she smiled her warm smile and added, Norm owed me big time after that. At the time of their retirement in 1996, Cherrywood Estates was advertised in the AARP magazine. Norm had a brother who lived in Beverly Hills, Florida, so the location was about ideal for the two of them. That is how Norm and Pauline found their way to Ocala and to our community. The houses were just being built at that time and much of their street wasnt even paved. Shortly after moving in, Pauline remembers walking to the clubhouse and coming face to face with one of her new neighbors; a large cow. During their married years, one of the many things that Pauline and Norm shared was a love of billiards. Norm got her interested in the game and they spent many happy hours together playing and perfecting their shooting ability. Pauline laughs when she talks about being at the clubhouse and playing as a team with Norm. In front of people she confided, he was a saint so when she missed a shot or messed up on a leave, he would tell her, Thats OK or no problem. On the way home, however, it was totally different. Why didnt you play that shot, or Why didnt you try and leave the ball there instead of She let it roll off her back. Five years ago, Norm was setting up a nine-ball tournament. He had to go into the hospital for a simple procedure and would be back home in a couple of days to complete the planning. Unfortunately, complications set in and Norm passed away. In his honor, the many pool shooters who knew and admired Norm decided to carry on with the tournament in his memory. Each year, Pauline presents the trophy to the tournament winner in honor of her husband, Norm. This is a tradition that is hopefully going to be carried on for many more years to come. Pauline continues her interest in pool and is on the Cherrywood Traveling Ladies team. In addition, she plays cards a couple of nights per week in the clubhouse; enjoys bingo every Thursday night and plays dominoes every week. Loving the people of Cherrywood and the activities, Pauline has a contagious zest for life and a quick smile. She loves her family and friends and is a real asset to the Cherrywood community.From Your ReporterIf you have an idea or suggestion for an article you would like to see in this section of the Citizen, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

At 0917 the Wesson began firing on three Japanese planes. In the ensuing fight, she was struck by a Kamikaze plane. One Kamikaze plane slipped by and crashed amidship at the torpedo tubes. It was during that attack that seven men lost their lives and 25 were wounded. During all the confusion, helping the wounded and fighting the fires aboard the ship a young sailor spotted the American flag and ships pennant in flames and he bravely retrieved them and saved what was left. Len was that young sailor. He kept them and displayed them for many years in his home. It is the legacy of men (heroes) like Leonard Wiessner who risked a moment in time to preserve precious pieces of history. Paul and I helped Ida by placing Len in the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., (lonesailor.com). The framed American flag and pennant need a pennant home beyond the Wiesnners. With many phone calls to Nat Museums, with the first one to say yes would receive the donation. The Veterans Memorial Park right here in Ocala was the one. On Aug. 16, Ida, her friend Joyce Quinn, Paul and I went to the museum and presented the framed American flag. It will be there on display for all to see and learn of a brave young sailor. If you have a chance stop by and view it. It is men and women who bring home mementoes that tell a story of bravery and heroism. Stop and think about yourself or your neighbors and the stories to be told. To all of our military, past, present and future thank you for your time served and your bravery to answer the call. To all Pine Run veterans I want to say a grateful Thank You for your service. From Karen Bowen, Proud Navy Brat! HERO CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 trative staff and functions as the fiscal agent. The Board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capability of food and shelter programs in high-need areas throughout the country. A local board will determine how the funds awarded are to be distributed among emergency food and shelter programs run by local service organizations.

Under terms of the grant from the national board, local government or private voluntary organizations chosen to receive funds must: 1) be nonprofit; 2) have an accounting system and conduct an annual audit; 3) practice nondiscrimination; 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Agencies will be required to provide a DUNS number and a valid e-mail address for contact person. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply. Marion County has distributed these funds previously to organizations such as: Interfaith Emergency Services; Salvation Army; Annie Johnson Senior Service Center; Creative Services; Arnette House; HELP Agency of the Forest; Marion County Homeless Council, Marion County Childrens Advocacy Center, Zion United Methodist Church, Shepherds Lighthouse, and Brothers Keeper.

INSURANCECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 In honor and memory of the victims and heroes of September 11, Highland Memorial Park a Place for Remembering will host the annual Field of Flags event. The Field of Flags memorial display will begin Tuesday, Sept. 11, and will be in place through Friday, Sept. 14. This is an event for the entire family. There is no charge to attend. The remembrance will feature a field of American flags, one for each victim, emergency responder and military-member who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The intent is to provide a place for our community to remember the thousands lost on 9-11 on this, our 11th anniversary of the tragedy. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, a unique, interactive memorial will take place in the evening: Beginning at dusk, as those nearly 3,000 flags stand in perfect rows, the field of flags will be lit and will be spaced so that those who wish to, may walk between them. A multi-screen video tribute will display the story of events of and surrounding 9-11. Candle memorials will be in place and candles will be available for those who attend to light in remembrance. In sacred symbolism of our nation, the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey will be onsite featuring a live bald eagle. This same evening, the Florida Blood Centers will be onsite conducting a blood drive. Please note, this years featured charity for Field of Flags is the American Red Cross. A donation receptacle will be in place on Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. All donated funds will directly support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts. 9-11 event planned at Highland The American College is dedicated to leadership in innovative training and development that helps financial services companies and their employees succeed.

Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19.

Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County.

At 0917 the Wesson began firing on three Japanese planes. In the ensuing fight, she was struck by a Kamikaze plane. One Kamikaze plane slipped by and crashed amidship at the torpedo tubes. It was during that attack that seven men lost their lives and 25 were wounded. During all the confusion, helping the wounded and fighting the fires aboard the ship a young sailor spotted the American flag and ships pennant in flames and he bravely retrieved them and saved what was left. Len was that young sailor. He kept them and displayed them for many years in his home. It is the legacy of men (heroes) like Leonard Wiessner who risked a moment in time to preserve precious pieces of history. Paul and I helped Ida by placing Len in the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., (lonesailor.com). The framed American flag and pennant need a pennant home beyond the Wiesnners. With many phone calls to Nat Museums, with the first one to say yes would receive the donation. The Veterans Memorial Park right here in Ocala was the one. On Aug. 16, Ida, her friend Joyce Quinn, Paul and I went to the museum and presented the framed American flag. It will be there on display for all to see and learn of a brave young sailor. If you have a chance stop by and view it. It is men and women who bring home mementoes that tell a story of bravery and heroism. Stop and think about yourself or your neighbors and the stories to be told. To all of our military, past, present and future thank you for your time served and your bravery to answer the call. To all Pine Run veterans I want to say a grateful Thank You for your service. From Karen Bowen, Proud Navy Brat! HEROCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 trative staff and functions as the fiscal agent. The Board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capability of food and shelter programs in high-need areas throughout the country. A local board will determine how the funds awarded are to be distributed among emergency food and shelter programs run by local service organizations. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds that might become available under this phase of the program. Under terms of the grant from the national board, local government or private voluntary organizations chosen to receive funds must: 1) be nonprofit; 2) have an accounting system and conduct an annual audit; 3) practice nondiscrimination; 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Agencies will be required to provide a DUNS number and a valid e-mail address for contact person. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply. Marion County has distributed these funds previously to organizations such as: Interfaith Emergency Services; Salvation Army; Annie Johnson Senior Service Center; Creative Services; Arnette House; HELP Agency of the Forest; Marion County Homeless Council, Marion County Childrens Advocacy Center, Zion United Methodist Church, Shepherds Lighthouse, and Brothers Keeper. These agencies have been responsible for providing meals, lodging, utility and rental assistance. Further information on the program may be obtained by contacting Cathy Truesdale at 352-732-9696. Applications may be picked up at 1401 N.E. 2nd St. Ocala, or downloaded at www.uwmc.org. Applications must be completed and returned to the same address no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28.

According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Marion County currently ranks 10th out of Floridas 67 counties in a statewide ranking of each countys adjusted recycling rate. We hope this enhancement of our recycling program will increase Marions recycling rate and help reduce the amount of materials going into the landfill, said Marion County Solid Waste Director Mike Sims. Plus, recycling will be easier and less time-consuming for our residents with no increase in cost to the department or to the taxpayers. For more information, contact Marion County Solid Waste at 352-671-8465.

The remembrance will feature a field of American flags, one for each victim, emergency responder and military-member who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The intent is to provide a place for our community to remember the thousands lost on 9-11 on this, our 11th anniversary of the tragedy. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, a unique, interactive memorial will take place in the evening: Beginning at dusk, as those nearly 3,000 flags stand in perfect rows, the field of flags will be lit and will be spaced so that those who wish to, may walk between them. A multi-screen video tribute will display the story of events of and surrounding 9-11. Candle memorials will be in place and candles will be available for those who attend to light in remembrance. In sacred symbolism of our nation, the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey will be onsite featuring a live bald eagle. This same evening, the Florida Blood Centers will be onsite conducting a blood drive. Please note, this years featured charity for Field of Flags is the American Red Cross. A donation receptacle will be in place on Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. All donated funds will directly support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts. 9-11 event planned at Highland The American College is dedicated to leadership in innovative training and development that helps financial services companies and their employees succeed.

As she told me of this incident, she smiled her warm smile and added, Norm owed me big time after that. At the time of their retirement in 1996, Cherrywood Estates was advertised in the AARP magazine. Norm had a brother who lived in Beverly Hills, Florida, so the location was about ideal for the two of them. That is how Norm and Pauline found their way to Ocala and to our community. The houses were just being built at that time and much of their street wasnt even paved. Shortly after moving in, Pauline remembers walking to the clubhouse and coming face to face with one of her new neighbors; a large cow. During their married years, one of the many things that Pauline and Norm shared was a love of billiards. Norm got her interested in the game and they spent many happy hours together playing and perfecting their shooting ability. Pauline laughs when she talks about being at the clubhouse and playing as a team with Norm. In front of people she confided, he was a saint so when she missed a shot or messed up on a leave, he would tell her, Thats OK or no problem. On the way home, however, it was totally different. Why didnt you play that shot, or Why didnt you try and leave the ball there instead of She let it roll off her back. Five years ago, Norm was setting up a nine-ball tournament. He had to go into the hospital for a simple procedure and would be back home in a couple of days to complete the planning. Unfortunately, complications set in and Norm passed away. In his honor, the many pool shooters who knew and admired Norm decided to carry on with the tournament in his memory. Each year, Pauline presents the trophy to the tournament winner in honor of her husband, Norm. This is a tradition that is hopefully going to be carried on for many more years to come. Pauline continues her interest in pool and is on the Cherrywood Traveling Ladies team. In addition, she plays cards a couple of nights per week in the clubhouse; enjoys bingo every Thursday night and plays dominoes every week. Loving the people of Cherrywood and the activities, Pauline has a contagious zest for life and a quick smile. She loves her family and friends and is a real asset to the Cherrywood community.From Your ReporterIf you have an idea or suggestion for an article you would like to see in this section of the Citizen, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Is the fabric used certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard program (GOTS, which mandates that at least 70 percent of fibers are derived from organic sources and do not contain chemical dyes or other additives)? Is the wood used certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as sustainably harvested? Does the piece contain any parts or pieces that come from bamboo or reclaimed wood or recycled metal or plastic? And is it easy to disassemble into reusable or recyclable parts if it needs to be replaced down the line? If the salesperson doesnt know the answers, chances are the piece does not pass environmental muster. Limiting your search to brick-and-mortar and Internetbased retailers that specialize in green products is one way to reduce the amount of research and self-education needed, especially because salespersons in such stores are usually up-to-speed on the latest and greatest in sustainable furnishings. Some leading national furniture chains that carry a sizeable inventory of sustainable goods include Crate and Barrel, Room and Board and West Elm, but many more single store eco-friendly furniture stores exist across the country. Some leading online green furniture retailers include Eco-Friendly Modern Living, Furnature, InMod, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, SmartDeco, Southcone and Viesso.CONTACTS: SFC, www.sustainablefurnishings.org; FSC, www.fsc.org; GOTS, www.global-standard.org; Eco-Friendly Modern Living, www.eco-friendlymodernliving.com; Furnature, www.furnature.com; InMod, www.inmod.com; Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, www.mgbwhome.com; SmartDeco, www.smartdecofurniture.com; Southcone, www.southcone.com; Viesso, www.viesso.com.E arthT alk is written and edited by R oddy Scheer and D oug M oss and is a registered trademark of E T he Env ironmental M agaz ine ( www emagaz ine. com).

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

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com We dont believe Missouri Congressman and Senate candidate Todd Akin committed a gaffe when he was asked if he would support abortions for women who have been raped. He said: It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, thats really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. The congressmans legitimate rape quote should rank among the most awkward comments in the history of the English language. It wasnt clear enough to qualify as an outbreak of hoof-inmouth disease. We think he said what he intended to say without emphasizing what he really meant. Mr. Akin holds a degree in engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a degree in www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 31, 2012 There are little things in life than can have a major effect on your concentration, your thought process, your lifestyle. Last week, my cell phone died. I wont tell you the brand, but this cell phone could do more things than just be a phone. Still, you had to maneuver around the screen with a little button, then press that button to make your phone do anything. If you wanted to type something, the keyboard was so small that a kindergartener probably would have been frustrated. It was probably just a battery, but somehow I remembered that years ago, when I got into the plan I was on, I was told that after two years I was entitled to a new phone if I signed up again for two years. Since those first two years had long since passed, I decided to find out what benefits awaited me. So I went to my providers store, and it turns out that I would get a credit toward a new phone. Phones cost so much now that they couldnt keep giving them away, I guess. So I took the plunge. I got a new phone, and I paid very, very little for it, which is good. I must say, its only been a few days, but so far Ive learned how to turn it on, turn it off, make a call and receive a call. Hows that for just a few days? This is one of those phones that you just touch the screen and it performs whatever function you touch. I havent figured out how to lock the screen yet, so I dont accidentally touch something, but I will. Honest. I found out that I can browse the Internet, send and receive email, use it as a GPS so I can find out where I am (hey, Im a man, I never ask for directions), listen to music and do all sorts of fun things with games. And now, I can even (gasp!) text. To get to the keyboard, you slide it out from under the screen and turn your phone sideways. In an amazing bit of technology, whatever is on your screen also turns sideways, saving you from a stiff neck. Sheer genius. Then there are apps. Im assuming that is short for applications, but you know what they say about people who assume things. I found several apps on my phone, but Im still learning how to use them. On The Weather Channel on Saturday morning, Stephanie Abrams was in Key West getting ready for the hurricane, and she talked to someone from the Red Cross about an app that they had available. Trouble is, for dunces like me, she never said how to get that app. Doesnt she know that people like me need lots of stepby-step guidance? The people at the store were very nice. They downloaded all my contacts from my old phone. They even transferred my ringtone, which is music from 50 years ago. Its a song called Meet the Mets. Those who know me probably already guessed that. So Im going through the abbreviated owners manual, which most companies evidently now expect you to read online, and trying to learn a lot of things. But I have to cut this short. My phone is ringing I think.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Labor Day isnt celebrated much these days as it was originally intended, which was to honor the working people of this country. Next Mondays holiday, the first Monday in September, used to be a big day for labor, particularly unions, to honor the workers who built America into the large industrial complex it is today. But with many of those jobs gone, either vanished or sent overseas, the holiday has lost its luster, and its hard to convince young people of it being anything other than just another day off, marking the traditional end of summer. In many parts of the country, school starts the day after Labor Day. Summer vacation is over and its time to hit the books. Up north, some apartment complexes and communities that opened their pools on Memorial Day close them after Labor Day, even if the temperature is still hovering around 90. Temperatures eventually start to turn a little cooler, a warning that winter is not too far away, even though fall has not yet begun. Of course, here in Florida, the end of summer is still far away. Were more concerned about an active hurricane month that anything else to do with the weather. So millions of people will celebrate Labor Day on Monday, without giving much thought as to why it is called that. Many of us had parents and grandparents who toiled as laborers, helping this country make advances during the 20th Century. Its a lot easier for us to remember them and their contributions. So if you have a chance, talk to a younger person about Labor Day and what it means. Workers are what made this country great, and if we lose that work ethic, we could be in trouble down the road. But, as usual, we leave you with this warning. If youre traveling this coming weekend to celebrate the holiday, please drive carefully. We want you back as readers next week. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Labor Day losing some of its meaning What happens if I push this button? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What politicians mean isnt always what they say Sanity and gunsAndrew Kramer of The New York Times reported. Russians can buy only a long-barrel firearm if they have a police permit that requires a clean criminal record, a gun safety course and a medical certificate of sanity. Thats right: a medical certificate of sanity something American politicians dare not dream of, let alone enact, under the intimidating shadow of the gun lobby. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAnswering a letterIn your Aug. 3 issue, a submission from an altogether too frequently published writer appeared in which he took issue with an unidentified ad (published somewhere) concerning Senator Bill Nelson. He carries on, the Republicans will do anything to further their cause and the Republicans tell lies to try and bring him down lies were the thing that got us into a war with Iraq by a Republican named George W. Bush. Im not sure Nelson could tell a lie. After he gets the words out of his mouth I doubt anyone could understand what his affected so-called southern drawl had said. Think how awful it would be if he noticed several people sitting on a railroad track as a train was approaching. Hed never get the warning out of his mouth in time. Unfortunately hes just another non-liar, or so says the writer. But in fairness to Senator Nelson, hes nowhere, thankfully, in the same category as Representative Pelosi and Senator Reid. Has anyone ever lied and said the opposition party increased the national debt by trillions of dollars, but continues to side step and hide the opportunities to reduce that debt which has saddled this country with that debt for years to come unless something changes? Of course, that position assumes their party Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED divinity studies from Coventry Theological Seminary. We doubt either school offers an elective in Gynecology 101. Opinions from around the world about Congressman Akins half suggestion that there are two kinds of rape have been various. A comment in the British Guardian newspaper suggested that by using the word legitimate, Mr. Akin was bending the word rape to sound less rapey. Calling Congressman Akins comments a mistake of words and of heart, the North American editor for the British Broadcasting Company dismissed Akins opinion as a politician peddling pregnancy-by-rape theories which date back to the 13th century. One of the old wives tales of that time was that pregnancy wouldnt have occurred if the woman hadnt enjoyed the rape. More professionally, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists called Mr. Akins statement medically offensive and dangerous to between 10,000 and 15,000 pregnant women who request abortions annually because of rape or incest. Mr. Akin seems to doubt those numbers. Gail Collins, who writes for the New York Times, was on the right trail about what Mr. Akin meant. Collins said Mr. Akin exposed the phoniness of the rape and incest exceptions which are used by some anti-abortionists to make their opposition appear more moderate. Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Diologues, wrote a note to Mr. Akin saying his assumption is that women and their experiences are not to be trusted. Her observation was right on! Mr. Akin was dismissing the annual rape and incest statistics of the Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He was suggesting that rape and incest exceptions just encourage women carrying undesired pregnancies to claim an abortion entitlement by lying about the circumstances of the conception in other words what he would call an illegitimate rape. Since the Rowe v. Wade abortion decision in 1973, some 300 human life amendments have been introduced in Congress. So far as we know, none suggests there are two kinds of rape legitimate and illegitimate. is squeaky clean no lies or offensive statements containing words like their current selection felon in referring to the opposition candidate. It seems the Democrats would rather let possible remedies remain on the Congressional way back burners and blame the Republicans than be a constructive force to implement creditable change.

E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: How energy efficient (and comfortable) is underfloor heating, sometimes known as radiant heating? Marcy Dell, Boston, MA Underfloor radiant heating involves under laying the floor with a hot element or tubing that transfers heat into the room via infrared radiation and convection, obviating the need for forced or blowing air. According to the U.S. Department of Energys Energy Savers website, radiant heating has a number of advantages over other forms of heat distribution: It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts. It is also flexible as it can run off of a variety of energy sources: Gas, oil, wood, solar and other sources or combinations thereof can feed radiant systems. And radiant heating is a good choice for those with severe allergies as no potentially irritating particles get blown around the room. Several aspects of radiant heating make it more energy efficient. For starters, the uniform heat distribution over the entire surface of a floor heats the lower half of the room, enveloping inhabitants in warmth at a lower overall temperaturein some cases up to five degrees Fahrenheit coolerthan a conventional heating system. Radiators and other forms of point heating circulate heat inefficiently and hence need to run for longer periods to obtain comfort levels, reports the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNet). They draw cold air across the floor and send warm air up to the ceiling, where it then falls, heating the room from the top down, creating drafts and circulating dust and allergens. RESNet adds that radiant systems transmit heat on average some 15 percent more efficiently than conventional radiators. The efficiency gains can be magnified significantly with good insulation and a well-designed system. While tearing out old heating systems and/or replacing decent existing flooring might be overkill for the sake of moving to radiant heat, those embarking on new building projects or contemplating major renovations should certainly consider it. According to TLC Networks Green Living Guide, there are two main types of radiant heating, electric and hydronic. In the former, heated wires installed in the floor radiate heat upward. This type of radiant heat is most commonly used to retrofit a single roomespecially a bathroom or kitchenin an older house or building. Meanwhile, hydronic radiant heating, whereby heated water is forced through tubes under the floor, is more often designed into a new structure from the get-go, and is more energy efficient overall. TLC points out that while radiant heat is definitely more efficient in smaller, snug homes with lower roofs, it might not always be the greenest solution in homes with bigger rooms: In some scenarios it can be less energy efficient than forced-air heating. TLC recommends consulting with a reputable heating contractor to see if radiant heating is a sensible way to go. Of course, pairing a radiant heating system with an energy efficient EnergySTAR-approved programmable thermostat can indeed save households hundreds of dollars a year on home heating bills while keeping inhabitants warmer all year long. Many states offer financial incentives to upgrade home and commercial heating systems in ways that boost energy efficiency. Check out the free Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) to find out what kinds of tax rebates or other incentives might be available in your neck of the woods.CONTACTS: Energy Savers, www.energysavers.gov; RESNet, www.resnet.us; TLC Network Green Guide, http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/green-living.htm; DSIRE Database, www.dsireusa.org.Dear EarthTalk: Are there certain brands or retail stores where sustainable furniture options can be had? And what should I look for when shopping for greener furniture? W. Cary, Trenton, NJ While we now opt often for greener cars, appliances, household cleaners and food to up the sustainability quotient of our lifestyles, the furniture we spend all day and night in close contact with is often far from eco-friendly. The vast majority of sofas, chairs, beds and other upholstered furniture we love to lounge on contain potentially carcinogenic formaldehyde and/or toxic flame retardants and stain resistors that have been linked to developmental and hormonal maladies. And much of the wood used in desks, chairs, tables and the like (as well as in the frames of upholstered furniture) comes from unsustainably harvested lumber which contributes to the deforestation of tropical rainforests. But today, thanks to increased consumer awareness and demand, there are more green choices in furniture available than ever before. A good place to start the search for that perfect couch or chair is the website of the Sustainable Furniture Council (SFC), a nonprofit formed in 2006 to help develop solid standards and certification processes within the home furnishings industry. The organization has become a leading information source and network of some 400 green furniture makers and related retailers, suppliers and designers as well as other non-profits. Consumers looking for greener furniture can browse SFCs membership list which features contact information and website links accordingly. Buyers beware: Just because a furniture maker is listed with SFC doesnt mean it eschews all chemicals or unsustainably harvested wood entirely, but only that it is making strides in that direction. Consumers should still be knowledgeable about which green features they are looking for and/or which kinds of materials to avoid. Of course, with something like furniture you really need to see and feel it in order to decide whether it will work in your space. Eco-conscious consumers making the rounds at local furniture stores should ously, the writers eyesight (or maybe its his hindsight) fails to accept the fact that Republicans are pretty good people and can deliver tit for tat. The truly sorry bit is that the media is so biased in its presentation of the news (?) as it continues to distribute that kind of garbage and, in so doing, continues to divide the country. The writer says he lived on this earth since Hoover was the president. Ive lived on this earth a little longer than he has. I was alive when Calvin Coolidge was the president. Except for the last few years, its been a good place to live. So, it would seem the writer and I should have many things in common. He was a musician and I was a member of my churchs catechism choir, until my monotone forced the director to relieve me of my responsibilities. He was a sports information director I was a player on a Big Ten basketball team before serving in World War II. After service, I played football and baseball, as well as basketball, at a small church-oriented college. Again, to his credit, he evidently is a good wood carver. The photos appear to display real workmanship. Hes got me there. I cant match that skill. My work was centered in factory management. I was responsible, during my career, to manage and direct the work of others as many as 6,800 employees during the assignment. I can match him in the number of work locations. I put in time at Bettendorf, Iowa, Moline and East Mole, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chicago, Illinois, Memphis, Tennessee, Mattoon, Illinois, Portland, Oregon, Winchester, Kentucky and had two satellite manufacturing operations in Canada. So, I guess I am pretty familiar with what a lot of people have on their minds. And he is a veteran I thank him for his service on the USS Leyte CV. I, too, served. I saw my first aircraft carrier (the Ben Franklin) while at anchor as the invasion fleet formed in the Ulithian Atoll for the landings of Okinawa. The Leyte had managed to sail to that anchorage after having been severely damaged while attacking the Japanese homeland. It was anchored next to the hospital ship, MercyY, or maybe it was the Comfort. How anyone survived on that damaged vessel was miraculous. I was a Marine (and always will be). I drove a tank, and then I commanded a platoon of tanks during the forgotten war Korea. The Aug. 3 and 24 writer was a hospital auditor I had a fairly compatible position chairman of the board of a 400-bed hospital Apparently, he is still a golfer. I beat my age. His brief bio, appearing in the S.W. Neighbors brochure, states he was a good friend of Red Auerbach and of Bob Evans. Well, my wife and I sat down with Big Jim Thompson, a former governor of Illinois, and his wife at a mansion dinner, along with six other couples after attending a governor-appointed regulatory board meeting. And I played basketball, while in Beijing, China, with the 5th Marine Regt. All-Stars along with such recognizable names as Andy Phillips, Alvin Dark, Jack Maddox, Chet Johnson and other. I met John Sherman Cooper, one of the most respected Kentucky senators. So, we can all drop names. They dont cut water. In that same Aug. 24 issue of the Citizen, the writer took issue with Ann Romney, the primary reason I have written this note aside from hoping that some time I would catch a column from some other name dropped and disoriented political individual. He says, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Why should she? Michelle Obama has secreted her graduate dissertation in the hallowed halls of that famous liberal eastern university. I should think that a single individuals dissertation is considerably less important than a taxpayers filing, even though that dissertation is reportedly not consistent with a democratic society. Its not the writers business to speculate on what is included in that report. A tax return is private property even though it has most assuredly been amply reviewed by government IRS personnel. It is the U.S. governments responsibility to verify the authenticity of the filing. Besides, Im not one of those who believes that a professional football player should receive more money for his services that a cardiac surgeon who saves lives. A working individual should be compensated for the worth he (or she) brings to an organization. Shuffling paper, making speeches, bobbing up airplane boarding ramps, violating the Constitution, bowling to foreign leaders, etc., and giving the nation away will never get this nation on its feet. Unfortunately, the other writer does not see the trees for the forest. Remember Abe Lincoln? He said, in part, at Gettysburg, that his nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth. The current president doesnt subscribe to those everlasting true words. Only a failed government can give money to an individual who is able but does, in fact, not week work and does nothing to deserve compensation. But then, maybe hes right: We should all just sit back and wait for the gift and certainly, perform no work. It isnt important a few trillion more in the hole is nothing. The president just has to run the presses and mail the checks. Is it at all possible that he and his followers are beating the wrong drums? Robert J. Gildea Oak RunBug control neededNo-see-um, biting midge, punkie, sand fly, or ceratopogonidae; no matter what you may call them, these tiny flying insects have been a plague in Florida households for years. They are kin to the mosquito in that the female requires blood from a mammal to complete her reproduction cycle. They take flight at dusk and dawn and seem to prefer the hairy heads of men for their blood source. No commercial product that promises household control of these pests is available and all home remedies involve placing open containers of various materials with strong odors around the house. We need some research on bug control. Industrial concerns could do it, if there was a large market with a large profit opportunity. But there may be a better and less expensive way. The universities in our state conduct research on many projects for many organizations. This research must be funded, usually by the organization that will benefit byFriday, August 31, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE10 Underfloor heating: How energy efficient is it?

the work, or more often by grants from Tallahassee. We are in an election year. If one or more of our candidates for our state legislature could see an opportunity to provide a solution to a problem that troubles a large number of down home voters, maybe we could get a bill to fund such a study. The school selected could also show the rest of our country that here in Florida, we do more on our campuses than play football. Bill Farthing OcalaWho is this man?There is no question we have huge differences of opinion among our neighbors and I respect our right to disagree. I do congratulate Harold Imgrund on his excellent letter last week, he included pure honest facts, not just opinions that have no bearing on a candidates qualification. It will be interesting to see how readers respond to his letter, for I cant understand how any patriotic American approves of this direction for our country. I believe Who is this Man? is the most important question we should have in considering who we want to elect to office, especially the president of the United States. To determine this, we must consider what determines his value system, what makes him who he is. As individuals, we are the result of many things including the following: our parents, who shaped us from day one; the one person we look up to more than any other; where we were raised (this is even more important than where we were born); where we were educated; our religious heritage, including what church we attended ; who were our best friends; who were our mentors; what I was taught about American history; who are my heroes; and the list goes on. I suggest we do not know most of this information about Obama, in fact we know less about him than any president in our history. The media prints every little bit of Romneys history, trying to promote class warfare by making a big issue of his being among the one percent. We will never get much more information about Obama through the liberal media. We had the opportunity to see the new documentary about Obama which answers the above questions from birth to the present and a glimpse into the future. Regardless of your feelings for Obama, love him or hate him, you need to see this film. It is well done, sticks to verifiable incidents, and answers the question, Who Is This Man? Once you can answer this question, you will be in position to cast an educated vote. Americas future depends on it! Wayne Rackley OcalaMedicare misrepresented by GOPIts clear, the Romney/Ryan ticket, is misrepresenting its Medicare cuts to the public. Of course this is nothing new. There never, and I mean never, has been a Republican president who has balanced the budget, created and passed bills for the middle class, or has been truthful to the American people. For example, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Herbert Hoover. and on and on and on. Even President Johnson, after President Lincoln was assisinated, let the northern carpetbaggers roam freely through the south and disrupt reconstruction. Having spent my life in the health care, corporate and political arena, its sad that the Republicans can sell so many people on all of their unstable, illogical programs. Now, heres something to think about. 90 percent of the population vote based on what they are told by politicians, not what they actually know. The average American, and average is not too bright, is not well informed on any of the issues, and never will be. Another thing Ive said before. Ohio, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Kentucky auto workers should be thanking President Obama, who saved the auto industry and probably their retirement packages while the Republicans condemed and still condemn the stimulus package for the auto industry. It was hilarious to listen to Paul Ryan speak at the largest retirement community in the world, the Villages, and use his mother as a crutch, when all the time he wants to destroy her Medicare and Social Security, the Villagers ate it up. Yes, Obama would cut Medicare spending but not benefits, $716 billion as would the Romney/Ryan ticket, but its how they would do it that counts. Obama will not cut benefits but would crack down on double billing by insurance companies and health care providers. Double billing is one of the worst abuses to any federal program. Been there, seen it. The Romney/Ryan plan would, in effect, end Medicare as we know it by replacing it with a voucher program that would leave the average American with $6,400 in extra costs within 10 years. Many of those on Medicare right now, would be affected by this change, even though the Republicans say the current Medicare recipients wouldnt be affected. If Paul Ryan had his way, there would be no more Medicare or Medicaid and no Social Security at all and this is well documented. How does he explain that to his mother? I can tell you Medicare fraud is happening right here in Marion County, as I personally have two Medicare fraud complaints sent to Medicare. Having been a Medicare fraud auditor beginning with the advent of Medicare, I know of what I speak. Oh yes, I would encourage everyone to read, listen and research, mainly research, reliable sources of both of these plans, and then you will quickly realize the Obama plan is the only way to go. In 1964, the naysayers said Medicare wouldnt work and look at us now. Its saved everyone over 65. The Republicans still want to destroy it. In addition, the Romney ticket would increase the deficit through another tax break, by reducing the wealthiest Americans tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. Congressman Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, would cut corporate and capital gains taxes and in doing so, there would be no possible way of balancing the budget until 2040. As an afterthought, Paul Ryan does not believe in giving women the right to their own bodies when it comes to abortion, and he is also against any form of contraception.. Finally, Ryan is much stronger than Romney, but is still a liability to the Republican ticket. Romneys wife tells him what to do. She said in a CNN-TV interview, he couldnt do it without me, he just couldnt do it. Now two liabilities dont make a plus two but a minus two. Something on the order of the movie Dumb and Dumber. We should remember Romney is the wont-give-it-up candidate. If you dont win at first try, try again, but we cant sit back and let Romney keep trying forever, just end it now. Send him back to whatever state he lives in or which ever country he keeps his money. Remember, he was a liability to Massachusetts and used Bain Capital for his own ends, so dont let him do it to the country. A vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket is a vote that would ensure Americas downfall. Bill Ford Ocala The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the July meeting, members talked about the upcoming elections on Aug. 14 and Nov. 4. The excitement is palpable as members recognized the many activities that must take place in an election year. It was a meeting for reflection as well, one of review of the presidents achievements on behalf of the American people and his continued determination to fulfill the promises that he made three plus years ago. In this mood Dr. Enid Jones presented an argument on why the banking system had to be saved as there has been so much debate on whether the banks are now serving the communities that provided funding for them when needed. The bottom line: without the financial intermediaries (the banks) the economy as we know it would have collapsed. Using an example of the marginal income of $1 circulating at a spending rate of 90 percent of each payment she showed that the dollar circulating from buyer to seller can generate a total income $8.47 after approximately 20 individuals had taken part in some form of transaction. The significance of this spending pattern is that for every cent spent a product is exchanged which is in turn generates more income as the product has to be manufactured thus using all the factors of production, land, capital, and most importantly, labor or workers (individuals such as your neighbors). The balance of unspent cents becomes savings which are usually placed in banks. If the imagination is stretched beyond $1.00 to several dollars circulating in a country of about 311 million people, then the increase in income is beyond imagination. Furthermore, market transactions are usually done with checks, credit cards and debit cards. These means of trade would be impossible without banks to act as clearinghouses for each other since we all do not have accounts in the same bank. Another very important function of the banking industry, especially commercial banks, occurs in the international trade sector. The transfer of goods and services between countries usually requires a letter of credit from the bank of the buyer in one country in collaboration with the bank of the seller in another country. The letter of credit is a sign of good faith and a guarantee that payment will be made once goods are delivered. International trade is not possible if there is no credibility in the banking system of all the countries involved. While the government itself does not produce goods and it is in fact the private businesses that carry out most of the trade the confidence provided by the government supports the banking system and in turn international trade in all areas of the economy. The fallout of a weak banking system includes loss of confidence in the currency, the U.S. dollar; hence even domestic trade would be compromised. Yes, the bank bail-out was necessary and even essential! The downside of course is that while the commercial sector is stabilizing the assistance for individuals has been less successful but would have been worse without the banks. This is Democrats in Marion Oaks hold meeting not to say other institutions cannot perform the banking functions but they would have to be in place before any collapse. Another topic that was addressed was the referenda on 1 mill real property tax increase that was included in the August election ballot. The discussion centered on the impact of the increase to the individual home and business owner. One mill means 1/1000 of the dollar. So if the assessed value (not necessarily the same as the market value) less an amount for homestead and other exemptions of the home or business is $100,000 then the increase in tax payment will be $100.00 for the year. This seemed a small price to pay for increased funding to our schools in Marion County to provide enhanced opportunities and capital funds for building schools for the success for our children. WHOS ON FIRST? Abbott and Costello tribute show comes to the Circle Square Cultural Center Bill Riley and Joe Ziegler transform themselves into Bud Abbott and Lou Costello through an authentic recreation of the teams mannerisms and vocal stylings. They perform with pinpoint accuracy many of the vaudeville and burlesque routines made famous by Bud and Lou on stage, screen, radio and television, including the classic baseball routine, Whos On First? The duo has performed as Abbott and Costello since 1994 for various corporations, private parties, civic groups, fund raisers and on radio and television.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to fix it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, D.C. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to fix it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, D.C. area and view it as a fixer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can fix it and fix it for good. All these politicians have fixed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him fixed. The results are the same in both situations. Then my wife made this observation. If these politicians are so all fired up about fixing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only fix hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The first thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They firmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there are always those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more benefit than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally significant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal ramifications.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

The original idea was to have a street parade demonstrating the strength of trade and labor organizations. Now many consider the holiday to be the end of summer while others just welcome a day off work. Anticipating the coming holiday, some locals held a parade on Pun Alley to leave some interesting stories.SleeplessA harried business executive went to his physician to get a prescription for sleeping pills, only to find that he was allergic to sedatives. What about some of this twilight sleep Ive read about? he asked the doctor. Oh, thats only for labor, was the reply. What! exclaimed the executive, havent you anything for management?Clean sweepA young man reported for his first day of work at a supermarket. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and gave him a broom and said, Your first job will be to sweep the store. But, Im a FSU graduate, the young man replied indignantly, I even played football there. Oh, Im sorry. I didnt know that, said the manager. Here, give me the broom, I better show you how.LaboringA good union man believes that time heals all wounds. Time and a half heals them a little faster. If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day weekend.

Twenty years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, and Steve Jobs. Now we have no cash, no hope, and no jobs. Please dont let Kevin Bacon die.

It will air daily following FYI at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Aug. 31 to Sept. 7. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadway announces a cast change for its October play, Squad Room Blues. Lou Winkelman for personal reasons has stepped down from his role as Lt. Mootfowl. Lou for some years has been one of our featured stars in both theatre groups. He is exceptionally talented and we will miss not only his expertise in this role but the wisdom and guidance he has brought to his fellow cast members. We are fortunate at this point in rehearsals to have an equally talented member of our group step into this role at this late date. Lenny Klatt, who along with his wife DiAnne, have been involved in not only many of our Oak Run plays but in others around the area, including the Ocala Civic Theatre. Lenny is a lawyer with offices just down State Rod 200 a little way and we marvel at how he can devote so much time to our productions and carry on a busy law practice as well. You know the old saying, If you want to get a job done, find a busy person. Lenny sure fits that mold. Rehearsals continue to improve each passing day, and Oak Runners are in for a treat. Tickets are selling briskly. Sales in September will be on Sept. 8 from 8 to 10 a.m., Sept. 12 from 8:30 to 9 a.m., Sept. 11 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sept. 22 from 8 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 6:45 p.m., all in the Orchid Club. There will be one sales date in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 3 from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Remember, if you cannot make a public ticket sale, you wont be left at the gate. Call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 and she will accommodate you. Our two Oak Run theatre groups are considering consolidating into a single group but continue to put on two plays a year. We will hold a joint business meeting in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. at which time we will vote in regard to proceeding with the merger of the two clubs. As a practical matter, most of our members belong to both groups and we share equipment, props, costumes, etc,. so it seems consolidation into a single group is the way to go. Medical Team meetingThe Oak Run Medical Team will meet Monday, Sept. 10, at 3 p.m. at the Island Club. This is a very important meeting to prepare for the annual Health Fair scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 25, at Palm Grove. Please mark both dates on your calendars and join us at the meeting.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS: THE MINISTER, HIS MISTRESS AND A HEARTLESS TEXAS MURDER BY KATHRYN CASEYThrust violently from their comfort zone, the Dullin family of Waco Texas struggled to grasp the news that older daughter Kari Dullin Baker was deadand by her own hand. None of it made any sense, absolutely none of it. Not even when her sister Nancy tried to tell her on the telephone or now when Linda Dullin was surrounded by two of her three sisters and her oldest niece Lindsey. Linda knew that her sisters meant well and were only trying to help her but she could not endure any more pain at what they were suggesting when Nancy said, We dont believe Kari killed herself. You see, the other women had an advantage Linda didnt have. For years theyd known that Karis husband wasnt who he pretended to bea true man of God. Far from it; he was a predator of women. Though it would take weeks to persuade Linda and husband Jim that Kari was a murder victim, this determined little band of Karis aunts and nieces were not about to give up seeing justice served. Their suspicions were well founded. The suicide note had been typed on a computer, even the signature. Signs of lividity and a cold body contradicted Matts time line on the night of the incident. Then there was a noticeable lack of emotion evident even to the EMTs. And on the day of her supposed suicide, Kari had bragged about the wonderful interview that garnered her a new job. A loving mother, daughter and sister, she would never have left them of her own free will. For years, Baptist Minister Matt Baker had been fired from one pastoral position after another, usually because of a female complaint. Compounding the problem was that Baptist congregations were autonomous and background checks of ministers were rare. Kari was fiercely loyal to Matt, always taking his side and believing that the women were liars. Even so, shortly before her death she voiced suspicions about an affair between Matt and a young, beautiful divorcee. The small town police of Hewitt had done such a sloppy job of investigation that it would take years to piece together enough evidence to bring Matt to trial. This is a well-researched, fascinating look at a murderer who nearly went unpunished. A fascinating look at a murderer BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Meeting to be held about Silver Springs areaSilver Springs-area businesses and property owners have an opportunity to potentially make a lasting impact on the area where they live and work. The Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development is hosting a second public meeting on Aug. 30 to obtain input and recommendations from those business owners and residents for a Silver Springs community redevelopment plan. The meeting serves as the next step in the process the Marion County Board of County Commissioners initiated earlier this year to explore the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area, or CRA, in Silver Springs. At the meeting, attendees will be able to participate in the planning process for addressing deficiencies in Silver Springs to help improve the areas long-term vitality. Comments from the public meeting will be used to draft the redevelopment plan that officials will present to the County Commission later this fall for further consideration. The meeting will be held Aug. 30, 3012, at 6 p.m. in the Marion County Growth Management Training Room (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala). For more information, contact Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development Economic Development Coordinator Joseph Saucer at 352-4382608. Crafters WantedAre you a crafter and want a place to display and sell your work? The Cherrywood Craft show it just the place you want to be on Saturday, Oct. 13. Our show opens at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. in the clubhouse and is open to the public. Because there are few craft shows scheduled for that time, expect a larger crowd of shoppers looking for unique items; artful designs and hand crafted gifts. Nonresidents are also welcome to display their goods, so if you live some place other than Cherrywood, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675 to reserve your space. Shoppers will find everything from tote bags to jewelry; wind chimes to beaded angels; flowers to wine bottles and much more at the Cherrywood Craft Show. This event is open to the public so come one; come all and experience a special Cherrywood event. Special Note: The Cherrywood Veterans Club will be sponsoring a booth at the Craft Show to take donations of non-perishable food for Ritz Veterans Home. Ritz House provides veterans a place to restart their lives in comfortable surroundings with supportive personnel. When you come to the craft show, if you could, bring some canned goods to donate, you would be helping this very worthy cause. Comedy night at CherrywoodGet ready for a night of comedic genius as Rene Bray takes the stage in the Cherrywood Clubhouse for two performances. Rene has headlined at comedy clubs all across the United States as well as Canada and in the Caribbean. In addition, she was the first comedienne to entertain our troops in Guantanamo, Cuba. To her credit, Rene has opened for such people as Billy Ray Cyrus; Steppenwolf; the Red Hot Chili Peppers and REO Speedwagon. Rene has also appeared on Montel Williams; Geraldo; Jenny Jones and on ABCs 20/20. Rene has a unique combination of flavors coupled with an easy; comfortable delivery style that guarantees an evening of fun entertainment. She will be appearing on Oct. 8 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited so be sure to get your tickets to either of the two shows from Geri but I suggest you do so quickly. Comedy night is free to all Cherrywood residents courtesy of Chris and Cherrywood Property Management so make your plans now to come out and see this world class talent.

If you have an interest in taking on this all important mission, contact David Siegel at 352-390-3325 or the Sheriffs Office at 352-812-0853.Important Announcement about AARP Driving Class Great news for veterans and their families was just recently released.

You can make a difference and ease the pain of a Veterans family; please help out.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach month we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week, in honor of the Norm Pellerin Memorial Nine-Ball Tournament, we introduce long time resident, Pauline Pellerin. Pauline was born in Lewiston, Maine, the eldest of four children. She has sisters Rose of Lewiston and Mariette who lives in Texas. A younger brother, Richard, passed away last year. Attending school in Lewiston, Pauline graduated from St. Dominick High School. Prior to graduation she went roller skating with a friend. It was there that she was introduced to a young Marine veteran by the name of Norman Pellerin. He had served in the Korean War and while four years her senior, he fell hard for Pauline and she for him. They continued to date throughout her last year at school. Tragically, that same year Paulines mother passed away from a brain tumor. Since her dad was an over-the-road trucker in the logging industry, Paulines youngest sister had to be in the care of the convent during the week when her father was out of town. This was a blow to the family unity. Shortly after her graduation, Norm asked Pauline to marry him. As she remembers back, she told me that her family considered him kind of wild. She recalled nervously having to tell her father when they became engaged. She smiled and added, he took it pretty well I guess. Following their engagement, Pauline went to work for the phone company as an operator. She worked there for the first few years of her marriage. She then left to take a position as a receptionist for Geiger Brothers Company. Geiger Brothers publishes the Farmers Almanac. Norm took a job with Dr. Tchao Eye Clinic in Lewiston. He became an optometrist and stayed with that comPauline Pellerin pany for his entire working career of more than 30 years. During that time they had three children; Debbie, Tony, and Carol. Their Daughter Debbie works at a bank and is married to Ted Poliquin; daughter Carol is a school teacher married to Dean Celani and they both still live in Lewiston, Maine. Pauline spends a couple of months each summer with them, enjoying her grandchildren. Tony, their son, lives in Colorado with his wife Carlota, and works for the telephone company out there. Over the winter holidays, Pauline spends time with them so she gets to see her family often and play with her four grandchildren. As Norm neared retirement age, he informed Pauline that they were going to move to Florida. He was fed up with the ice and snow of the Maine winters. Pauline said, Well talk about it until one day when Norm came in to her office and asked her for her car key. Of course she asked why he wanted it to which he replied, I just sold your car. Were moving to Florida.

It was the largest turnout for the tour nament in its histor y and in addition, it saw some of the highest caliber pool shooting since its inception.

Because of their ground-breaking entr y we expect even more of our ladies to enter next year Our winner for the contest was Larr y Murray whose name will be added to the Norm P ellerin Plaque in the poolroom.

They kept ever ything r unning Nine-ball t ournamen t firsts and a sec ond smoothly throughout the matches, and we thank all of them for their hard work and a great time. Note: See related information in the Spotlight on Excellence in this column.100 Da ys of Summer Contin uesGet ready for another night of fun; food; and frolic in September. Octoberfest is coming on Sept. 24. Not familiar with Octoberfest? Let me share a little information about this traditional Southern Germany tradition. More than 200 years ago, King Ludwig married a Bavarian girl. The entire town of Munchen was invited to join in the festivities in the meadow outside of the city. Well, they had such a good time, they decided to make it an annual event and Southern Bavaria, as well as many other places in the world, now enjoy drinking beer; dancing; eating good food and in general, partying their heads off. Cherrywood is joining in this fine tradition by bringing Octoberfest to our clubhouse. The band Northern Sounds will be supplying the German music as well as contemporary tunes to entertain and delight the guests. Theyve been here before and were well received. Food for the evening will be Bratwurst (Brochen) with all the fixings. Iced tea and lemonade will be available and ice cream for dessert. Everyone is welcome to bring their own beverages of choice to compliment the meal and to enhance your evening. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thanks to Chris Zacco and the Cherrywood Property Management, the 100 Days of Summer events are free to Cherrywood residents but tickets must be obtained from Geri. See her for your tickets and if you have guests who would like to attend, the cost is $12 each. Your ticket also makes you eligible for the door prize. Last month saw a record crowd for the Country Under the Sun celebration so get your tickets early. For sure you dont want to miss out on this party. Oh, and you might be wondering why Octoberfest is held in late September? Its because the weather is better in Germany at that time of year. V eterans Club meetingA ver y important V eter ans Club meeting will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the clubhouse. If you are a veteran and have not joined the club, youre missing a lot. Ever y month we have a guest speaker who brings information of interest to all veterans; helpful benefit tips and many opportunities. This month death benefits will be discussed along with a variety of other items on the agenda. F ollowing the meeting, ever yone goes to the patio to share a social hour or so. The V eterans Club is a unique opportunity for those who ser ved to share their interests and experiences as well as a chance to continue ser ving. Membership is just $5 and that is a one-time fee. There are no annual dues. Come out and share some quality time with your fellow veterans and see if you can t find great satisfaction in continuing your ser vice to your community; your countr y and even your self. Mo vie nightSpend a night with your friends and neighbors on Sept. 4, laughing at the antics of The Three Stooges 2012.

Suncoast Blvd. (US 19) A block and a half south of Ft. Island T rail The fif th annual Norm P ellerin Nine-Ball T ournament was held A ug. 20 through 22, and what an event it was. F or the first time in its histor y the tournament featured lady shooters and also for the first time, there was a repeat winner More than 25 players signed up and took part in the match that lasted for three days. It was the largest turnout for the tour nament in its histor y and in addition, it saw some of the highest caliber pool shooting since its inception. Sandy W ilson and Judy Pniewski gave the men a r un for their money taking the game to their oppo nents. Both were warmly received and were given high praise for their skill and commitment. Because of their ground-breaking entr y we expect even more of our ladies to enter next year Our winner for the contest was Larr y Murray whose name will be added to the Norm P ellerin Plaque in the poolroom. This is the second time that he has won with his first victor y coming in 2009. In close championship rounds Larr y beat out Dave Bragdon who came in second place, and newcomer to Cherr ywood Mick James, who finished third. Congratulations to Larr y on a hard-fought win against some stiff competition. Rich Hurley who ran the tournament, is to be congratulated on the fine job he did in organizing this competition. He was assisted this year by scorekeepers Holly Bragdon; R uth Hurley; Nan Brown and Donna James. They kept ever ything r unning Nine-ball t ournamen t firsts and a sec ond smoothly throughout the matches, and we thank all of them for their hard work and a great time.

Octoberfest is coming on Sept. 24. Not familiar with Octoberfest? Let me share a little information about this traditional Southern Germany tradition. More than 200 years ago, King Ludwig married a Bavarian girl. The entire town of Munchen was invited to join in the festivities in the meadow outside of the city. Well, they had such a good time, they decided to make it an annual event and Southern Bavaria, as well as many other places in the world, now enjoy drinking beer; dancing; eating good food and in general, partying their heads off. Cherrywood is joining in this fine tradition by bringing Octoberfest to our clubhouse. The band Northern Sounds will be supplying the German music as well as contemporary tunes to entertain and delight the guests. Theyve been here before and were well received. Food for the evening will be Bratwurst (Brochen) with all the fixings. Iced tea and lemonade will be available and ice cream for dessert. Everyone is welcome to bring their own beverages of choice to compliment the meal and to enhance your evening. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thanks to Chris Zacco and the Cherrywood Property Management, the 100 Days of Summer events are free to Cherrywood residents but tickets must be obtained from Geri. See her for your tickets and if you have guests who would like to attend, the cost is $12 each. Your ticket also makes you eligible for the door prize. Last month saw a record crowd for the Country Under the Sun celebration so get your tickets early. For sure you dont want to miss out on this party. Oh, and you might be wondering why Octoberfest is held in late September? Its because the weather is better in Germany at that time of year. V eterans Club meetingA ver y important V eter ans Club meeting will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the clubhouse. If you are a veteran and have not joined the club, youre missing a lot. Ever y month we have a guest speaker who brings information of interest to all veterans; helpful benefit tips and many opportunities.

Come out and share some quality time with your fellow veterans and see if you can t find great satisfaction in continuing your ser vice to your community; your countr y and even your self. Mo vie nightSpend a night with your friends and neighbors on Sept. 4, laughing at the antics of The Three Stooges 2012. Hilarious classic slapstick comedy abounds when these characters come on screen to delight and entertain. Nobody doesnt like the Stooges.

Bring your own snacks and beverages if you prefer and at 7 p.m. settle in for an evening of laugh-out-loud comedy in the clubhouse.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS: THE MINISTER, HIS MISTRESS AND A HEARTLESS TEXAS MURDER BY KATHRYN CASEYThrust violently from their comfort zone, the Dullin family of Waco Texas struggled to grasp the news that older daughter Kari Dullin Baker was deadand by her own hand. None of it made any sense, absolutely none of it. Not even when her sister Nancy tried to tell her on the telephone or now when Linda Dullin was surrounded by two of her three sisters and her oldest niece Lindsey. Linda knew that her sisters meant well and were only trying to help her but she could not endure any more pain at what they were suggesting when Nancy said, We dont believe Kari killed herself. You see, the other women had an advantage Linda didnt have. For years theyd known that Karis husband wasnt who he pretended to bea true man of God. Far from it; he was a predator of women. Though it would take weeks to persuade Linda and husband Jim that Kari was a murder victim, this determined little band of Karis aunts and nieces were not about to give up seeing justice served. Their suspicions were well founded. The suicide note had been typed on a computer, even the signature. Signs of lividity and a cold body contradicted Matts time line on the night of the incident. Then there was a noticeable lack of emotion evident even to the EMTs. And on the day of her supposed suicide, Kari had bragged about the wonderful interview that garnered her a new job. A loving mother, daughter and sister, she would never have left them of her own free will. For years, Baptist Minister Matt Baker had been fired from one pastoral position after another, usually because of a female complaint. Compounding the problem was that Baptist congregations were autonomous and background checks of ministers were rare. Kari was fiercely loyal to Matt, always taking his side and believing that the women were liars. Even so, shortly before her death she voiced suspicions about an affair between Matt and a young, beautiful divorcee. The small town police of Hewitt had done such a sloppy job of investigation that it would take years to piece together enough evidence to bring Matt to trial. This is a well-researched, fascinating look at a murderer who nearly went unpunished. A fascinating look at a murderer BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Meeting to be held about Silver Springs areaSilver Springs-area businesses and property owners have an opportunity to potentially make a lasting impact on the area where they live and work. The Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development is hosting a second public meeting on Aug. 30 to obtain input and recommendations from those business owners and residents for a Silver Springs community redevelopment plan. The meeting serves as the next step in the process the Marion County Board of County Commissioners initiated earlier this year to explore the creation of a Community Redevelopment Area, or CRA, in Silver Springs. At the meeting, attendees will be able to participate in the planning process for addressing deficiencies in Silver Springs to help improve the areas long-term vitality. Comments from the public meeting will be used to draft the redevelopment plan that officials will present to the County Commission later this fall for further consideration. The meeting will be held Aug. 30, 3012, at 6 p.m. in the Marion County Growth Management Training Room (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala). For more information, contact Marion County Office of Economic and Small Business Development Economic Development Coordinator Joseph Saucer at 352-4382608. Crafters WantedAre you a crafter and want a place to display and sell your work? The Cherrywood Craft show it just the place you want to be on Saturday, Oct. 13. Our show opens at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. in the clubhouse and is open to the public. Because there are few craft shows scheduled for that time, expect a larger crowd of shoppers looking for unique items; artful designs and hand crafted gifts. Nonresidents are also welcome to display their goods, so if you live some place other than Cherrywood, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675 to reserve your space. Shoppers will find everything from tote bags to jewelry; wind chimes to beaded angels; flowers to wine bottles and much more at the Cherrywood Craft Show. This event is open to the public so come one; come all and experience a special Cherrywood event. Special Note: The Cherrywood Veterans Club will be sponsoring a booth at the Craft Show to take donations of non-perishable food for Ritz Veterans Home. Ritz House provides veterans a place to restart their lives in comfortable surroundings with supportive personnel. When you come to the craft show, if you could, bring some canned goods to donate, you would be helping this very worthy cause. Comedy night at CherrywoodGet ready for a night of comedic genius as Rene Bray takes the stage in the Cherrywood Clubhouse for two performances. Rene has headlined at comedy clubs all across the United States as well as Canada and in the Caribbean. In addition, she was the first comedienne to entertain our troops in Guantanamo, Cuba. To her credit, Rene has opened for such people as Billy Ray Cyrus; Steppenwolf; the Red Hot Chili Peppers and REO Speedwagon. Rene has also appeared on Montel Williams; Geraldo; Jenny Jones and on ABCs 20/20. Rene has a unique combination of flavors coupled with an easy; comfortable delivery style that guarantees an evening of fun entertainment. She will be appearing on Oct. 8 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited so be sure to get your tickets to either of the two shows from Geri but I suggest you do so quickly. Comedy night is free to all Cherrywood residents courtesy of Chris and Cherrywood Property Management so make your plans now to come out and see this world class talent. Camera ClubThe Shutterbugs will meet at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 7. President Gen Downs has an interesting presentation planned and on the 21st, the group plans a trip to Sholom Park.

If you have an interest in taking on this all important mission, contact David Siegel at 352-390-3325 or the Sheriffs Office at 352-812-0853.Important Announcement about AARP Driving Class Great news for veterans and their families was just recently released.

You can make a difference and ease the pain of a Veterans family; please help out.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach month we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has an interesting past; a promising future or who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week, in honor of the Norm Pellerin Memorial Nine-Ball Tournament, we introduce long time resident, Pauline Pellerin. Pauline was born in Lewiston, Maine, the eldest of four children. She has sisters Rose of Lewiston and Mariette who lives in Texas. A younger brother, Richard, passed away last year. Attending school in Lewiston, Pauline graduated from St. Dominick High School. Prior to graduation she went roller skating with a friend. It was there that she was introduced to a young Marine veteran by the name of Norman Pellerin. He had served in the Korean War and while four years her senior, he fell hard for Pauline and she for him. They continued to date throughout her last year at school. Tragically, that same year Paulines mother passed away from a brain tumor. Since her dad was an over-the-road trucker in the logging industry, Paulines youngest sister had to be in the care of the convent during the week when her father was out of town. This was a blow to the family unity. Shortly after her graduation, Norm asked Pauline to marry him. As she remembers back, she told me that her family considered him kind of wild. She recalled nervously having to tell her father when they became engaged. She smiled and added, he took it pretty well I guess. Following their engagement, Pauline went to work for the phone company as an operator. She worked there for the first few years of her marriage. She then left to take a position as a receptionist for Geiger Brothers Company. Geiger Brothers publishes the Farmers Almanac. Norm took a job with Dr. Tchao Eye Clinic in Lewiston. He became an optometrist and stayed with that comPauline Pellerin pany for his entire working career of more than 30 years. During that time they had three children; Debbie, Tony, and Carol. Their Daughter Debbie works at a bank and is married to Ted Poliquin; daughter Carol is a school teacher married to Dean Celani and they both still live in Lewiston, Maine. Pauline spends a couple of months each summer with them, enjoying her grandchildren. Tony, their son, lives in Colorado with his wife Carlota, and works for the telephone company out there. Over the winter holidays, Pauline spends time with them so she gets to see her family often and play with her four grandchildren. As Norm neared retirement age, he informed Pauline that they were going to move to Florida. He was fed up with the ice and snow of the Maine winters. Pauline said, Well talk about it until one day when Norm came in to her office and asked her for her car key. Of course she asked why he wanted it to which he replied, I just sold your car. Were moving to Florida.

Christmas DanceTune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the December 2010 New York Clubs Christmas dinner dance, narrated by Anna Boodee. It will air daily following FYI at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Aug. 31 to Sept. 7. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadway announces a cast change for its October play, Squad Room Blues. Lou Winkelman for personal reasons has stepped down from his role as Lt. Mootfowl. Lou for some years has been one of our featured stars in both theatre groups. He is exceptionally talented and we will miss not only his expertise in this role but the wisdom and guidance he has brought to his fellow cast members. We are fortunate at this point in rehearsals to have an equally talented member of our group step into this role at this late date. Lenny Klatt, who along with his wife DiAnne, have been involved in not only many of our Oak Run plays but in others around the area, including the Ocala Civic Theatre. Lenny is a lawyer with offices just down State Rod 200 a little way and we marvel at how he can devote so much time to our productions and carry on a busy law practice as well. You know the old saying, If you want to get a job done, find a busy person. Lenny sure fits that mold. Rehearsals continue to improve each passing day, and Oak Runners are in for a treat. Tickets are selling briskly. Sales in September will be on Sept. 8 from 8 to 10 a.m., Sept. 12 from 8:30 to 9 a.m., Sept. 11 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Sept. 22 from 8 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 6:45 p.m., all in the Orchid Club. There will be one sales date in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 3 from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Remember, if you cannot make a public ticket sale, you wont be left at the gate. Call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 and she will accommodate you. Our two Oak Run theatre groups are considering consolidating into a single group but continue to put on two plays a year. We will hold a joint business meeting in the Palm Grove Club on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. at which time we will vote in regard to proceeding with the merger of the two clubs. As a practical matter, most of our members belong to both groups and we share equipment, props, costumes, etc,. so it seems consolidation into a single group is the way to go. Medical Team meetingThe Oak Run Medical Team will meet Monday, Sept. 10, at 3 p.m. at the Island Club. This is a very important meeting to prepare for the annual Health Fair scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 25, at Palm Grove. Please mark both dates on your calendars and join us at the meeting.

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to fix it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, D.C. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to fix it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, D.C. area and view it as a fixer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can fix it and fix it for good. All these politicians have fixed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him fixed. The results are the same in both situations. Then my wife made this observation. If these politicians are so all fired up about fixing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only fix hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The first thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They firmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there are always those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more benefit than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally significant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal ramifications.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

The original idea was to have a street parade demonstrating the strength of trade and labor organizations. Now many consider the holiday to be the end of summer while others just welcome a day off work. Anticipating the coming holiday, some locals held a parade on Pun Alley to leave some interesting stories.SleeplessA harried business executive went to his physician to get a prescription for sleeping pills, only to find that he was allergic to sedatives. What about some of this twilight sleep Ive read about? he asked the doctor. Oh, thats only for labor, was the reply. What! exclaimed the executive, havent you anything for management?Clean sweepA young man reported for his first day of work at a supermarket. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and gave him a broom and said, Your first job will be to sweep the store. But, Im a FSU graduate, the young man replied indignantly, I even played football there. Oh, Im sorry. I didnt know that, said the manager. Here, give me the broom, I better show you how.LaboringA good union man believes that time heals all wounds. Time and a half heals them a little faster. If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day weekend. Iowa pig farmers have a worry that the mad cow disease may be transmitted to pigs resulting in mad pig disease. In other words, they are worried about the daze of swine neurosis. Hes a gunner in a canning factory. He shells peas. The ushers at a hit musical cheered and stamped their feet at each curtain call. A patron said, You must be crazy about this show. One usher said, Two more curtain calls and we go into overtime. I joined an international union; now I can be out of work all over the world. Twenty years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, and Steve Jobs. Now we have no cash, no hope, and no jobs. Please dont let Kevin Bacon die. An accountant was hired by the circus but they had to fire him because he juggled the books. Hes one of the big guns of the industry; hes been fired six times.

If any calls came in on this line John knew it would be a wrong number. It got to the point where as soon as the phone rang, he would pick up and say, Psychic Hotline. Im sorry, but youve dialed the wrong number. The caller would often reply with something like, But I didnt even ask to speak to anyone yet. How did you know I dialed the wrong . Oh!

the work, or more often by grants from Tallahassee. We are in an election year. If one or more of our candidates for our state legislature could see an opportunity to provide a solution to a problem that troubles a large number of down home voters, maybe we could get a bill to fund such a study. The school selected could also show the rest of our country that here in Florida, we do more on our campuses than play football. Bill Farthing OcalaWho is this man?There is no question we have huge differences of opinion among our neighbors and I respect our right to disagree. I do congratulate Harold Imgrund on his excellent letter last week, he included pure honest facts, not just opinions that have no bearing on a candidates qualification. It will be interesting to see how readers respond to his letter, for I cant understand how any patriotic American approves of this direction for our country. I believe Who is this Man? is the most important question we should have in considering who we want to elect to office, especially the president of the United States. To determine this, we must consider what determines his value system, what makes him who he is. As individuals, we are the result of many things including the following: our parents, who shaped us from day one; the one person we look up to more than any other; where we were raised (this is even more important than where we were born); where we were educated; our religious heritage, including what church we attended ; who were our best friends; who were our mentors; what I was taught about American history; who are my heroes; and the list goes on. I suggest we do not know most of this information about Obama, in fact we know less about him than any president in our history. The media prints every little bit of Romneys history, trying to promote class warfare by making a big issue of his being among the one percent. We will never get much more information about Obama through the liberal media. We had the opportunity to see the new documentary about Obama which answers the above questions from birth to the present and a glimpse into the future. Regardless of your feelings for Obama, love him or hate him, you need to see this film. It is well done, sticks to verifiable incidents, and answers the question, Who Is This Man? Once you can answer this question, you will be in position to cast an educated vote. Americas future depends on it! Wayne Rackley OcalaMedicare misrepresented by GOPIts clear, the Romney/Ryan ticket, is misrepresenting its Medicare cuts to the public. Of course this is nothing new. There never, and I mean never, has been a Republican president who has balanced the budget, created and passed bills for the middle class, or has been truthful to the American people. For example, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Herbert Hoover. and on and on and on. Even President Johnson, after President Lincoln was assisinated, let the northern carpetbaggers roam freely through the south and disrupt reconstruction. Having spent my life in the health care, corporate and political arena, its sad that the Republicans can sell so many people on all of their unstable, illogical programs. Now, heres something to think about. 90 percent of the population vote based on what they are told by politicians, not what they actually know. The average American, and average is not too bright, is not well informed on any of the issues, and never will be. Another thing Ive said before. Ohio, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Kentucky auto workers should be thanking President Obama, who saved the auto industry and probably their retirement packages while the Republicans condemed and still condemn the stimulus package for the auto industry. It was hilarious to listen to Paul Ryan speak at the largest retirement community in the world, the Villages, and use his mother as a crutch, when all the time he wants to destroy her Medicare and Social Security, the Villagers ate it up. Yes, Obama would cut Medicare spending but not benefits, $716 billion as would the Romney/Ryan ticket, but its how they would do it that counts. Obama will not cut benefits but would crack down on double billing by insurance companies and health care providers. Double billing is one of the worst abuses to any federal program. Been there, seen it. The Romney/Ryan plan would, in effect, end Medicare as we know it by replacing it with a voucher program that would leave the average American with $6,400 in extra costs within 10 years. Many of those on Medicare right now, would be affected by this change, even though the Republicans say the current Medicare recipients wouldnt be affected. If Paul Ryan had his way, there would be no more Medicare or Medicaid and no Social Security at all and this is well documented. How does he explain that to his mother? I can tell you Medicare fraud is happening right here in Marion County, as I personally have two Medicare fraud complaints sent to Medicare. Having been a Medicare fraud auditor beginning with the advent of Medicare, I know of what I speak. Oh yes, I would encourage everyone to read, listen and research, mainly research, reliable sources of both of these plans, and then you will quickly realize the Obama plan is the only way to go. In 1964, the naysayers said Medicare wouldnt work and look at us now. Its saved everyone over 65. The Republicans still want to destroy it. In addition, the Romney ticket would increase the deficit through another tax break, by reducing the wealthiest Americans tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. Congressman Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, would cut corporate and capital gains taxes and in doing so, there would be no possible way of balancing the budget until 2040. As an afterthought, Paul Ryan does not believe in giving women the right to their own bodies when it comes to abortion, and he is also against any form of contraception.. Finally, Ryan is much stronger than Romney, but is still a liability to the Republican ticket. Romneys wife tells him what to do. She said in a CNN-TV interview, he couldnt do it without me, he just couldnt do it. Now two liabilities dont make a plus two but a minus two. Something on the order of the movie Dumb and Dumber. We should remember Romney is the wont-give-it-up candidate. If you dont win at first try, try again, but we cant sit back and let Romney keep trying forever, just end it now. Send him back to whatever state he lives in or which ever country he keeps his money. Remember, he was a liability to Massachusetts and used Bain Capital for his own ends, so dont let him do it to the country. A vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket is a vote that would ensure Americas downfall. Bill Ford Ocala The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the July meeting, members talked about the upcoming elections on Aug. 14 and Nov. 4. The excitement is palpable as members recognized the many activities that must take place in an election year. It was a meeting for reflection as well, one of review of the presidents achievements on behalf of the American people and his continued determination to fulfill the promises that he made three plus years ago. In this mood Dr. Enid Jones presented an argument on why the banking system had to be saved as there has been so much debate on whether the banks are now serving the communities that provided funding for them when needed. The bottom line: without the financial intermediaries (the banks) the economy as we know it would have collapsed. Using an example of the marginal income of $1 circulating at a spending rate of 90 percent of each payment she showed that the dollar circulating from buyer to seller can generate a total income $8.47 after approximately 20 individuals had taken part in some form of transaction. The significance of this spending pattern is that for every cent spent a product is exchanged which is in turn generates more income as the product has to be manufactured thus using all the factors of production, land, capital, and most importantly, labor or workers (individuals such as your neighbors). The balance of unspent cents becomes savings which are usually placed in banks. If the imagination is stretched beyond $1.00 to several dollars circulating in a country of about 311 million people, then the increase in income is beyond imagination. Furthermore, market transactions are usually done with checks, credit cards and debit cards. These means of trade would be impossible without banks to act as clearinghouses for each other since we all do not have accounts in the same bank. Another very important function of the banking industry, especially commercial banks, occurs in the international trade sector. The transfer of goods and services between countries usually requires a letter of credit from the bank of the buyer in one country in collaboration with the bank of the seller in another country. The letter of credit is a sign of good faith and a guarantee that payment will be made once goods are delivered. International trade is not possible if there is no credibility in the banking system of all the countries involved. While the government itself does not produce goods and it is in fact the private businesses that carry out most of the trade the confidence provided by the government supports the banking system and in turn international trade in all areas of the economy. The fallout of a weak banking system includes loss of confidence in the currency, the U.S. dollar; hence even domestic trade would be compromised. Yes, the bank bail-out was necessary and even essential! The downside of course is that while the commercial sector is stabilizing the assistance for individuals has been less successful but would have been worse without the banks. This is Democrats in Marion Oaks hold meeting not to say other institutions cannot perform the banking functions but they would have to be in place before any collapse. Another topic that was addressed was the referenda on 1 mill real property tax increase that was included in the August election ballot. The discussion centered on the impact of the increase to the individual home and business owner. One mill means 1/1000 of the dollar. So if the assessed value (not necessarily the same as the market value) less an amount for homestead and other exemptions of the home or business is $100,000 then the increase in tax payment will be $100.00 for the year. This seemed a small price to pay for increased funding to our schools in Marion County to provide enhanced opportunities and capital funds for building schools for the success for our children. WHOS ON FIRST? Abbott and Costello tribute show comes to the Circle Square Cultural Center Bill Riley and Joe Ziegler transform themselves into Bud Abbott and Lou Costello through an authentic recreation of the teams mannerisms and vocal stylings. They perform with pinpoint accuracy many of the vaudeville and burlesque routines made famous by Bud and Lou on stage, screen, radio and television, including the classic baseball routine, Whos On First? The duo has performed as Abbott and Costello since 1994 for various corporations, private parties, civic groups, fund raisers and on radio and television. Jason Crutchley originally began working with the team as their sound engineer and announcer in 2002. In 2004, the duo became a trio, as Jason joined Bill and Joe on stage as Scoop Fields Ace Press Agent. Jason also appears as various other characters in a number of routines. Prior to joining Riley and Ziegler, Crutchley, of Pylesville, MD, had worked behind the scenes in several North Harford High School productions as prop master and stage hand. He then went on to act in school musicals and stage shows, including several comedic lead roles.

Cindy Grimes, a facilitator for Devereux Kids, will speak on behalf of childrens advocacy initiatives at the next womens gathering of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County when the group holds a potluck luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the Greater Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, 515 N.W. Sixth Terrace. Ms. Lois Lilley, chairlady of the Missionary Ministry, will welcome guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dr. George W. Lee Fellowship Hall adjacent to the sanctuary. Parking and entry is on the north side of the building. Ms. Grimes, a very warm and engaging speaker, will introduce attendees to an overview of programs offered by Devereux Kids in an effort to help observers identify and take appropriate action to help when they witness children suffering from abuse or neglect. Devereux Kids, established in 1999, is a self-supporting primary prevention and diversion program which offers community learning programs and facilitation services to teach positive intervention and advocacy skills to neighborhood groups, faith communities, grassroots organizations and interested residents. All our efforts to build an ever more peaceful and respectful community among peoples of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds will prove meaningless if we allow the most fragile and voiceless among us to suffer according to Delphine Herbert, current president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County. The statistics for the state of Florida are alarming and getting worse in every important measurement of childrens well-being education, health family support and community care.

E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: How energy efficient (and comfortable) is underfloor heating, sometimes known as radiant heating? Marcy Dell, Boston, MA Underfloor radiant heating involves under laying the floor with a hot element or tubing that transfers heat into the room via infrared radiation and convection, obviating the need for forced or blowing air. According to the U.S. Department of Energys Energy Savers website, radiant heating has a number of advantages over other forms of heat distribution: It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts. It is also flexible as it can run off of a variety of energy sources: Gas, oil, wood, solar and other sources or combinations thereof can feed radiant systems. And radiant heating is a good choice for those with severe allergies as no potentially irritating particles get blown around the room. Several aspects of radiant heating make it more energy efficient. For starters, the uniform heat distribution over the entire surface of a floor heats the lower half of the room, enveloping inhabitants in warmth at a lower overall temperaturein some cases up to five degrees Fahrenheit coolerthan a conventional heating system. Radiators and other forms of point heating circulate heat inefficiently and hence need to run for longer periods to obtain comfort levels, reports the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNet). They draw cold air across the floor and send warm air up to the ceiling, where it then falls, heating the room from the top down, creating drafts and circulating dust and allergens. RESNet adds that radiant systems transmit heat on average some 15 percent more efficiently than conventional radiators. The efficiency gains can be magnified significantly with good insulation and a well-designed system. While tearing out old heating systems and/or replacing decent existing flooring might be overkill for the sake of moving to radiant heat, those embarking on new building projects or contemplating major renovations should certainly consider it. According to TLC Networks Green Living Guide, there are two main types of radiant heating, electric and hydronic. In the former, heated wires installed in the floor radiate heat upward. This type of radiant heat is most commonly used to retrofit a single roomespecially a bathroom or kitchenin an older house or building. Meanwhile, hydronic radiant heating, whereby heated water is forced through tubes under the floor, is more often designed into a new structure from the get-go, and is more energy efficient overall. TLC points out that while radiant heat is definitely more efficient in smaller, snug homes with lower roofs, it might not always be the greenest solution in homes with bigger rooms: In some scenarios it can be less energy efficient than forced-air heating. TLC recommends consulting with a reputable heating contractor to see if radiant heating is a sensible way to go. Of course, pairing a radiant heating system with an energy efficient EnergySTAR-approved programmable thermostat can indeed save households hundreds of dollars a year on home heating bills while keeping inhabitants warmer all year long. Many states offer financial incentives to upgrade home and commercial heating systems in ways that boost energy efficiency. Check out the free Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) to find out what kinds of tax rebates or other incentives might be available in your neck of the woods.CONTACTS: Energy Savers, www.energysavers.gov; RESNet, www.resnet.us; TLC Network Green Guide, http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/green-living.htm; DSIRE Database, www.dsireusa.org.Dear EarthTalk: Are there certain brands or retail stores where sustainable furniture options can be had? And what should I look for when shopping for greener furniture? W. Cary, Trenton, NJ While we now opt often for greener cars, appliances, household cleaners and food to up the sustainability quotient of our lifestyles, the furniture we spend all day and night in close contact with is often far from eco-friendly. The vast majority of sofas, chairs, beds and other upholstered furniture we love to lounge on contain potentially carcinogenic formaldehyde and/or toxic flame retardants and stain resistors that have been linked to developmental and hormonal maladies. And much of the wood used in desks, chairs, tables and the like (as well as in the frames of upholstered furniture) comes from unsustainably harvested lumber which contributes to the deforestation of tropical rainforests. But today, thanks to increased consumer awareness and demand, there are more green choices in furniture available than ever before. A good place to start the search for that perfect couch or chair is the website of the Sustainable Furniture Council (SFC), a nonprofit formed in 2006 to help develop solid standards and certification processes within the home furnishings industry. The organization has become a leading information source and network of some 400 green furniture makers and related retailers, suppliers and designers as well as other non-profits. Consumers looking for greener furniture can browse SFCs membership list which features contact information and website links accordingly. Buyers beware: Just because a furniture maker is listed with SFC doesnt mean it eschews all chemicals or unsustainably harvested wood entirely, but only that it is making strides in that direction. Consumers should still be knowledgeable about which green features they are looking for and/or which kinds of materials to avoid. Of course, with something like furniture you really need to see and feel it in order to decide whether it will work in your space. Eco-conscious consumers making the rounds at local furniture stores should ously, the writers eyesight (or maybe its his hindsight) fails to accept the fact that Republicans are pretty good people and can deliver tit for tat. The truly sorry bit is that the media is so biased in its presentation of the news (?) as it continues to distribute that kind of garbage and, in so doing, continues to divide the country. The writer says he lived on this earth since Hoover was the president. Ive lived on this earth a little longer than he has. I was alive when Calvin Coolidge was the president. Except for the last few years, its been a good place to live. So, it would seem the writer and I should have many things in common. He was a musician and I was a member of my churchs catechism choir, until my monotone forced the director to relieve me of my responsibilities. He was a sports information director I was a player on a Big Ten basketball team before serving in World War II. After service, I played football and baseball, as well as basketball, at a small church-oriented college. Again, to his credit, he evidently is a good wood carver. The photos appear to display real workmanship. Hes got me there. I cant match that skill. My work was centered in factory management. I was responsible, during my career, to manage and direct the work of others as many as 6,800 employees during the assignment. I can match him in the number of work locations. I put in time at Bettendorf, Iowa, Moline and East Mole, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chicago, Illinois, Memphis, Tennessee, Mattoon, Illinois, Portland, Oregon, Winchester, Kentucky and had two satellite manufacturing operations in Canada. So, I guess I am pretty familiar with what a lot of people have on their minds. And he is a veteran I thank him for his service on the USS Leyte CV. I, too, served. I saw my first aircraft carrier (the Ben Franklin) while at anchor as the invasion fleet formed in the Ulithian Atoll for the landings of Okinawa. The Leyte had managed to sail to that anchorage after having been severely damaged while attacking the Japanese homeland. It was anchored next to the hospital ship, MercyY, or maybe it was the Comfort. How anyone survived on that damaged vessel was miraculous. I was a Marine (and always will be). I drove a tank, and then I commanded a platoon of tanks during the forgotten war Korea. The Aug. 3 and 24 writer was a hospital auditor I had a fairly compatible position chairman of the board of a 400-bed hospital Apparently, he is still a golfer. I beat my age. His brief bio, appearing in the S.W. Neighbors brochure, states he was a good friend of Red Auerbach and of Bob Evans. Well, my wife and I sat down with Big Jim Thompson, a former governor of Illinois, and his wife at a mansion dinner, along with six other couples after attending a governor-appointed regulatory board meeting. And I played basketball, while in Beijing, China, with the 5th Marine Regt. All-Stars along with such recognizable names as Andy Phillips, Alvin Dark, Jack Maddox, Chet Johnson and other. I met John Sherman Cooper, one of the most respected Kentucky senators. So, we can all drop names. They dont cut water. In that same Aug. 24 issue of the Citizen, the writer took issue with Ann Romney, the primary reason I have written this note aside from hoping that some time I would catch a column from some other name dropped and disoriented political individual. He says, Ann Romney is no Michelle Obama She doesnt even want to release their tax reports. Why should she? Michelle Obama has secreted her graduate dissertation in the hallowed halls of that famous liberal eastern university. I should think that a single individuals dissertation is considerably less important than a taxpayers filing, even though that dissertation is reportedly not consistent with a democratic society. Its not the writers business to speculate on what is included in that report. A tax return is private property even though it has most assuredly been amply reviewed by government IRS personnel. It is the U.S. governments responsibility to verify the authenticity of the filing. Besides, Im not one of those who believes that a professional football player should receive more money for his services that a cardiac surgeon who saves lives. A working individual should be compensated for the worth he (or she) brings to an organization. Shuffling paper, making speeches, bobbing up airplane boarding ramps, violating the Constitution, bowling to foreign leaders, etc., and giving the nation away will never get this nation on its feet. Unfortunately, the other writer does not see the trees for the forest. Remember Abe Lincoln? He said, in part, at Gettysburg, that his nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth. The current president doesnt subscribe to those everlasting true words. Only a failed government can give money to an individual who is able but does, in fact, not week work and does nothing to deserve compensation. But then, maybe hes right: We should all just sit back and wait for the gift and certainly, perform no work. It isnt important a few trillion more in the hole is nothing. The president just has to run the presses and mail the checks. Is it at all possible that he and his followers are beating the wrong drums? Robert J. Gildea Oak RunBug control neededNo-see-um, biting midge, punkie, sand fly, or ceratopogonidae; no matter what you may call them, these tiny flying insects have been a plague in Florida households for years. They are kin to the mosquito in that the female requires blood from a mammal to complete her reproduction cycle. They take flight at dusk and dawn and seem to prefer the hairy heads of men for their blood source. No commercial product that promises household control of these pests is available and all home remedies involve placing open containers of various materials with strong odors around the house. We need some research on bug control. Industrial concerns could do it, if there was a large market with a large profit opportunity. But there may be a better and less expensive way. The universities in our state conduct research on many projects for many organizations. This research must be funded, usually by the organization that will benefit byFriday, August 31, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, August 31, 2012 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE10 Underfloor heating: How energy efficient is it?

Friday, August 31, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com We dont believe Missouri Congressman and Senate candidate Todd Akin committed a gaffe when he was asked if he would support abortions for women who have been raped. He said: It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, thats really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. The congressmans legitimate rape quote should rank among the most awkward comments in the history of the English language. It wasnt clear enough to qualify as an outbreak of hoof-inmouth disease. We think he said what he intended to say without emphasizing what he really meant. Mr. Akin holds a degree in engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a degree in www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 31, 2012 There are little things in life than can have a major effect on your concentration, your thought process, your lifestyle. Last week, my cell phone died. I wont tell you the brand, but this cell phone could do more things than just be a phone. Still, you had to maneuver around the screen with a little button, then press that button to make your phone do anything. If you wanted to type something, the keyboard was so small that a kindergartener probably would have been frustrated. It was probably just a battery, but somehow I remembered that years ago, when I got into the plan I was on, I was told that after two years I was entitled to a new phone if I signed up again for two years. Since those first two years had long since passed, I decided to find out what benefits awaited me. So I went to my providers store, and it turns out that I would get a credit toward a new phone. Phones cost so much now that they couldnt keep giving them away, I guess. So I took the plunge. I got a new phone, and I paid very, very little for it, which is good. I must say, its only been a few days, but so far Ive learned how to turn it on, turn it off, make a call and receive a call. Hows that for just a few days? This is one of those phones that you just touch the screen and it performs whatever function you touch. I havent figured out how to lock the screen yet, so I dont accidentally touch something, but I will. Honest. I found out that I can browse the Internet, send and receive email, use it as a GPS so I can find out where I am (hey, Im a man, I never ask for directions), listen to music and do all sorts of fun things with games. And now, I can even (gasp!) text. To get to the keyboard, you slide it out from under the screen and turn your phone sideways. In an amazing bit of technology, whatever is on your screen also turns sideways, saving you from a stiff neck. Sheer genius. Then there are apps. Im assuming that is short for applications, but you know what they say about people who assume things. I found several apps on my phone, but Im still learning how to use them. On The Weather Channel on Saturday morning, Stephanie Abrams was in Key West getting ready for the hurricane, and she talked to someone from the Red Cross about an app that they had available. Trouble is, for dunces like me, she never said how to get that app. Doesnt she know that people like me need lots of stepby-step guidance? The people at the store were very nice. They downloaded all my contacts from my old phone. They even transferred my ringtone, which is music from 50 years ago. Its a song called Meet the Mets. Those who know me probably already guessed that. So Im going through the abbreviated owners manual, which most companies evidently now expect you to read online, and trying to learn a lot of things. But I have to cut this short. My phone is ringing I think.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Labor Day isnt celebrated much these days as it was originally intended, which was to honor the working people of this country. Next Mondays holiday, the first Monday in September, used to be a big day for labor, particularly unions, to honor the workers who built America into the large industrial complex it is today. But with many of those jobs gone, either vanished or sent overseas, the holiday has lost its luster, and its hard to convince young people of it being anything other than just another day off, marking the traditional end of summer. In many parts of the country, school starts the day after Labor Day. Summer vacation is over and its time to hit the books. Up north, some apartment complexes and communities that opened their pools on Memorial Day close them after Labor Day, even if the temperature is still hovering around 90. Temperatures eventually start to turn a little cooler, a warning that winter is not too far away, even though fall has not yet begun. Of course, here in Florida, the end of summer is still far away. Were more concerned about an active hurricane month that anything else to do with the weather. So millions of people will celebrate Labor Day on Monday, without giving much thought as to why it is called that. Many of us had parents and grandparents who toiled as laborers, helping this country make advances during the 20th Century. Its a lot easier for us to remember them and their contributions. So if you have a chance, talk to a younger person about Labor Day and what it means. Workers are what made this country great, and if we lose that work ethic, we could be in trouble down the road. But, as usual, we leave you with this warning. If youre traveling this coming weekend to celebrate the holiday, please drive carefully. We want you back as readers next week. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Labor Day losing some of its meaning What happens if I push this button? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What politicians mean isnt always what they say Sanity and gunsAndrew Kramer of The New York Times reported. Russians can buy only a long-barrel firearm if they have a police permit that requires a clean criminal record, a gun safety course and a medical certificate of sanity. Thats right: a medical certificate of sanity something American politicians dare not dream of, let alone enact, under the intimidating shadow of the gun lobby. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAnswering a letterIn your Aug. 3 issue, a submission from an altogether too frequently published writer appeared in which he took issue with an unidentified ad (published somewhere) concerning Senator Bill Nelson. He carries on, the Republicans will do anything to further their cause and the Republicans tell lies to try and bring him down lies were the thing that got us into a war with Iraq by a Republican named George W. Bush. Im not sure Nelson could tell a lie. After he gets the words out of his mouth I doubt anyone could understand what his affected so-called southern drawl had said. Think how awful it would be if he noticed several people sitting on a railroad track as a train was approaching. Hed never get the warning out of his mouth in time. Unfortunately hes just another non-liar, or so says the writer. But in fairness to Senator Nelson, hes nowhere, thankfully, in the same category as Representative Pelosi and Senator Reid. Has anyone ever lied and said the opposition party increased the national debt by trillions of dollars, but continues to side step and hide the opportunities to reduce that debt which has saddled this country with that debt for years to come unless something changes? Of course, that position assumes their party Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED divinity studies from Coventry Theological Seminary. We doubt either school offers an elective in Gynecology 101. Opinions from around the world about Congressman Akins half suggestion that there are two kinds of rape have been various. A comment in the British Guardian newspaper suggested that by using the word legitimate, Mr. Akin was bending the word rape to sound less rapey. Calling Congressman Akins comments a mistake of words and of heart, the North American editor for the British Broadcasting Company dismissed Akins opinion as a politician peddling pregnancy-by-rape theories which date back to the 13th century. One of the old wives tales of that time was that pregnancy wouldnt have occurred if the woman hadnt enjoyed the rape. More professionally, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists called Mr. Akins statement medically offensive and dangerous to between 10,000 and 15,000 pregnant women who request abortions annually because of rape or incest. Mr. Akin seems to doubt those numbers. Gail Collins, who writes for the New York Times, was on the right trail about what Mr. Akin meant. Collins said Mr. Akin exposed the phoniness of the rape and incest exceptions which are used by some anti-abortionists to make their opposition appear more moderate. Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Diologues, wrote a note to Mr. Akin saying his assumption is that women and their experiences are not to be trusted. Her observation was right on! Mr. Akin was dismissing the annual rape and incest statistics of the Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He was suggesting that rape and incest exceptions just encourage women carrying undesired pregnancies to claim an abortion entitlement by lying about the circumstances of the conception in other words what he would call an illegitimate rape. Since the Rowe v. Wade abortion decision in 1973, some 300 human life amendments have been introduced in Congress. So far as we know, none suggests there are two kinds of rape legitimate and illegitimate. is squeaky clean no lies or offensive statements containing words like their current selection felon in referring to the opposition candidate. It seems the Democrats would rather let possible remedies remain on the Congressional way back burners and blame the Republicans than be a constructive force to implement creditable change.

Thursday, Sept. 13 Federal retirees to gatherThe National Association of Retired Federal Employees, Chapter 2279 of Ocala, and their spouses, will meet at the Olive Garden Restaurant, Sept. 13, at 1 p.m. for lunch and a meeting afterward. 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.

Call 352-690-7323 for tickets. CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 More on Pages 6-7 keep a few key questions in mind for salespersons. Does the piece in question contain formaldehyde, flame retardants or stain resistant sprays? Is the fabric used certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard program (GOTS, which mandates that at least 70 percent of fibers are derived from organic sources and do not contain chemical dyes or other additives)? Is the wood used certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as sustainably harvested? Does the piece contain any parts or pieces that come from bamboo or reclaimed wood or recycled metal or plastic? And is it easy to disassemble into reusable or recyclable parts if it needs to be replaced down the line? If the salesperson doesnt know the answers, chances are the piece does not pass environmental muster. Limiting your search to brick-and-mortar and Internetbased retailers that specialize in green products is one way to reduce the amount of research and self-education needed, especially because salespersons in such stores are usually up-to-speed on the latest and greatest in sustainable furnishings. Some leading national furniture chains that carry a sizeable inventory of sustainable goods include Crate and Barrel, Room and Board and West Elm, but many more single store eco-friendly furniture stores exist across the country. Some leading online green furniture retailers include Eco-Friendly Modern Living, Furnature, InMod, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, SmartDeco, Southcone and Viesso.CONTACTS: SFC, www.sustainablefurnishings.org; FSC, www.fsc.org; GOTS, www.global-standard.org; Eco-Friendly Modern Living, www.eco-friendlymodernliving.com; Furnature, www.furnature.com; InMod, www.inmod.com; Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, www.mgbwhome.com; SmartDeco, www.smartdecofurniture.com; Southcone, www.southcone.com; Viesso, www.viesso.com.E arthT alk is written and edited by R oddy Scheer and D oug M oss and is a registered trademark of E T he Env ironmental M agaz ine ( www emagaz ine. com).

As she told me of this incident, she smiled her warm smile and added, Norm owed me big time after that. At the time of their retirement in 1996, Cherrywood Estates was advertised in the AARP magazine. Norm had a brother who lived in Beverly Hills, Florida, so the location was about ideal for the two of them. That is how Norm and Pauline found their way to Ocala and to our community. The houses were just being built at that time and much of their street wasnt even paved. Shortly after moving in, Pauline remembers walking to the clubhouse and coming face to face with one of her new neighbors; a large cow. During their married years, one of the many things that Pauline and Norm shared was a love of billiards. Norm got her interested in the game and they spent many happy hours together playing and perfecting their shooting ability. Pauline laughs when she talks about being at the clubhouse and playing as a team with Norm. In front of people she confided, he was a saint so when she missed a shot or messed up on a leave, he would tell her, Thats OK or no problem. On the way home, however, it was totally different. Why didnt you play that shot, or Why didnt you try and leave the ball there instead of She let it roll off her back. Five years ago, Norm was setting up a nine-ball tournament. He had to go into the hospital for a simple procedure and would be back home in a couple of days to complete the planning. Unfortunately, complications set in and Norm passed away. In his honor, the many pool shooters who knew and admired Norm decided to carry on with the tournament in his memory. Each year, Pauline presents the trophy to the tournament winner in honor of her husband, Norm. This is a tradition that is hopefully going to be carried on for many more years to come. Pauline continues her interest in pool and is on the Cherrywood Traveling Ladies team. In addition, she plays cards a couple of nights per week in the clubhouse; enjoys bingo every Thursday night and plays dominoes every week. Loving the people of Cherrywood and the activities, Pauline has a contagious zest for life and a quick smile. She loves her family and friends and is a real asset to the Cherrywood community.From Your ReporterIf you have an idea or suggestion for an article you would like to see in this section of the Citizen, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

At 0917 the Wesson began firing on three Japanese planes. In the ensuing fight, she was struck by a Kamikaze plane. One Kamikaze plane slipped by and crashed amidship at the torpedo tubes. It was during that attack that seven men lost their lives and 25 were wounded. During all the confusion, helping the wounded and fighting the fires aboard the ship a young sailor spotted the American flag and ships pennant in flames and he bravely retrieved them and saved what was left. Len was that young sailor. He kept them and displayed them for many years in his home. It is the legacy of men (heroes) like Leonard Wiessner who risked a moment in time to preserve precious pieces of history. Paul and I helped Ida by placing Len in the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., (lonesailor.com). The framed American flag and pennant need a pennant home beyond the Wiesnners. With many phone calls to Nat Museums, with the first one to say yes would receive the donation. The Veterans Memorial Park right here in Ocala was the one. On Aug. 16, Ida, her friend Joyce Quinn, Paul and I went to the museum and presented the framed American flag. It will be there on display for all to see and learn of a brave young sailor. If you have a chance stop by and view it. It is men and women who bring home mementoes that tell a story of bravery and heroism. Stop and think about yourself or your neighbors and the stories to be told. To all of our military, past, present and future thank you for your time served and your bravery to answer the call. To all Pine Run veterans I want to say a grateful Thank You for your service. From Karen Bowen, Proud Navy Brat! HEROCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 trative staff and functions as the fiscal agent.

Agencies will be required to provide a DUNS number and a valid e-mail address for contact person. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply. Marion County has distributed these funds previously to organizations such as: Interfaith Emergency Services; Salvation Army; Annie Johnson Senior Service Center; Creative Services; Arnette House; HELP Agency of the Forest; Marion County Homeless Council, Marion County Childrens Advocacy Center, Zion United Methodist Church, Shepherds Lighthouse, and Brothers Keeper.

Plus, recycling will be easier and less time-consuming for our residents with no increase in cost to the department or to the taxpayers.

A multi-screen video tribute will display the story of events of and surrounding 9-11. Candle memorials will be in place and candles will be available for those who attend to light in remembrance. In sacred symbolism of our nation, the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey will be onsite featuring a live bald eagle. This same evening, the Florida Blood Centers will be onsite conducting a blood drive. Please note, this years featured charity for Field of Flags is the American Red Cross.

Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctors visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15 or $20 or nothing at all. Families can apply in person at United Way by making an appointment by calling 2-1-1. Working families with uninsured children and teenagers should be given every opportunity to enroll in Florida KidCare, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County.
