He was recently pinned by fellow veterans. He served in the Pacific with the Navy in World War II. The 86-year-old Pine Run resident wanted to surprise his wife with a picture in the South Marion Citizen. Getting pinned at Legacy House PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJim McEnery and his wife, Gert, look over his book in his room at Legacy House after the veterans pinning ceremony. BY JIM CLARK Editor Jim McEnery writes about his World War II exploits with the U.S. Marines, but the Kingsland Country Estates resident, now in Hospice, almost saw the war from a different branch of the service. McEnery, who authored the book Hell in the Pacific: A Marine Riflemans Journey from Guadalcanal to Peleliu with historian Bill Sloan, was in New York City in 1940, and he and a friend decided to go to the Army recruiting center to sign up. But to their surprise, it was closed. So the pair made their way to the U.S. Marines center. The first Marine I saw said Semper Fidelis, McEnery said, and added with a laugh, I thought he said seventy-five dollars. In a ceremony conducted by the Florida Veterans Association in PLEASESEEVETERAN PAGE3 PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELLocal car show Among the vehicles on display in early August at the monthly car show in Friendship Centers parking lot were this red pickup, yellow Chevy, and a red sports car, all in good running condition. The next car show is scheduled for Sept. 7. This Chevy was born in 1938 but runs well. There are a few small places that need painting but they are hard to find. This Ford had an unusual antique tag from New Hampshire. It read PUT PUT. It putted along nicely to get to the show. 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 multiscreen 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.

The pin was placed by his wife, Gert. The couple were married 65 years last week on Aug. 30. McEnery will turn 93 on Sept. 30. McEnery was part of a rifle company called K/3/5, which was featured on a television show on HBO. He took part in the invasion of Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester and Peleliu and saw hand-to-hand combat against the Japanese, especially in the four months at Guadalcanal. The other battles were perhaps more bloody, and as time went on it was discovered the Peleliu battle was not strategically necessary, something which irks McEnery. McEnery was scheduled to have a book signing recently, but fell ill and couldnt attend. The book, published by Simon and Schuster, is available at Barnes and Noble in Ocala. Suzanne S.

Thirty seven players participated, and enjoyed a sunny, warm day. The scores were close, and reflected the playing conditions which have become tougher due to the growing rough, no doubt caused by the rainy weather we have experienced the past few weeks. The winners with a 198 were Sam Sample, Bill Start, Ray Hagerman, and Art Pruneau. Second with a 199 were Virgil Hein, Tom Ducz, Tom Morris, and Duck Slayton. Third with a 201 were Al Prachel, Dick Berbig, and Mike Madill. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Emmett Dowling, Bill Start, Bob Gildea, and Paul Valois.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Recent arrests by the Southwest District Office of the Marion County Sheriffs Office: Glen W. Morgan, listed as homeless, age 52, was accused of trespass after warning after he was found sitting on a bench at Jasmine Plaza. In March, he had been issued a warning. Gloria Burleson Harrell, 63, of Southwest 89th Circle, was given a notice to appear after deputies were called to Bealls. She was allegedly observed taking items of clothing and a purse, and then left the store without any attempt to pay for the goods while her adult daughter, who was with her, stopped and checked out. Total value of items taken was $276. RECENT ARRESTS The Seniors vs. Crime program, a special project of the Florida Attorney Generals Office, located at the Paddock Mall in the Ocala Police Community Resource Center is expanding their office hours to better serve the community. Since our opening in 2007 we have been open on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Beginning, Thursday, September 20th we will be open two days each week, on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p. m. According to Regional Director, Barbara Thomas this will allow us to serve additional clients and increase access to the awesome service provided by Seniors vs. Crime. Seniors vs. Crime can help people of any age. If someone has not delivered products or services you have paid for, or if you have been victimized or otherwise taken advantage of financially by a business or service provider, contact Seniors vs. Crime at (352) 873-6377. Our trained senior volunteers have helped many people over the years and have recovered approximately $150,000 for the citizens of Ocala. Just recently an 85 year old woman came to us with a problem, pertaining to a life insurance policy. Her policy stated paid in full at age 85 but she continued to be billed and told she had to pay until she turned 86. After meeting with Seniors vs. Crime, our staff was able to get her reimbursed for all payments made after her 85th birth date.

In little more than six months according to the most reliable scientific predictions, at least half the planets population will die in a series of interlocking cataclysms. And then will come the ash cloud, the darkness, the twenty-degree dip in global temperatures. No crops, no cattle, no light. The slow cold fate of those who remain. As the date of the worlds end is verified as Oct. 3, people start walking off their jobs; bucket listers travel to exotic places, remarry, experiment with sex and drugs, find religion, or like many in this hanger town commit suicide. But Palace, to paraphrase Kiplings poem If, keeps his head about him when all about him are losing theirs. In Concord, New Hampshire, the young detective weighs his options: Right at this moment I have to decide, is the thing. Am I going to leave town and go north to Maine and find a house on Casco Bay and sit there and stare out the window with my sidearm and wait, or am I going to stay here and do my work and finish my case. He opts for the latter choice. As he pieces together his clues he exasperates the medical examiner, his fellow officers, and his sister Nico who begs him to find her doofus husband instead of wasting time on a The worlds going to end?

Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Take Stock in Children, a statewide non-profit organization with a solid history of providing scholarships, mentors and hope, is proud to announce the launch of Keeping the Promise, an initiative to raise enough funding to purchase college scholarships for an additional 1,800 deserving low-income students. This will increase the number of scholars currently served by 25% to 9,000 active students across Florida. As a role model organization that has supported more than 18,000 students to date, over 80% whom are the first in their family to attend college, Take Stock in Children recently received national recognition for its exemplary successes. As a result of its winning formula of providing low-income students scholarships, mentors and hope, the organization was awarded the prestigious Investing in Innovation grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and also shined in a study by the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. On the heels of this success, the State of Florida demonstrated their belief in Take Stock in Children by allocating an additional $1 million in funding with the understanding that the organization will register an additional 1,800 students. The State of Florida recognizes Take Stock in Children is a strong partner in the solution for improving education, says Emilio Alonso-Mendoza, President/CEO of Take Stock in Children. We must now keep the promise of providing a college education to these students by purchasing 1,800 scholarships and recruiting caring mentors for each of them. Prior to enrolling any student Take Stock in Children must first secure the funding to purchase a college scholarship for them, as this is the promise made to all its scholars. In return, each student promises to meet with their mentor once a week, maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and remain drug and crime free. Upon fulfillment of this agreement students are awarded a college scholarship at high school graduation. To achieve this goal, individuals and businesses are needed to rally behind Take Stock Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative. Volunteering, mentoring or providing resources to purchase scholarships will help ensure Floridas future workforce is strong and improve our communities. With Take Stock in Childrens unique public and private model of funding, any contribution made is matched dollar for dollar by the state. Take Stock in Children plays a critical role in changing the face of education and has a long history of proven results, says Don Pemberton, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children. We believe that knowledge is power and education is the best investment to transform lives. The program offers a unique opportunity for students with comprehensive services starting in middle school, continuing through high school and including assistance during the transition to college. With an unparalleled high school graduation rate of 92%, and 89% enrolling in college, Take Stock in Children contributes to the economic viability of our communities and delivers an unmatched return on investment. High school graduates contribute 46% more in taxes, have longer lives with less public health dependency and are 3 times more likely to be employed and not dependent on government assistance. The total benefit to the State of Florida is estimated to be $300,000 per student over a lifetime. To learn more about Take Stock in Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative, or to become a valued mentor or supporter, please call 888-322-4673 or visit www.takestockinchildren.org.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com H ow many national issues does it take to make an interesting presidential election? Would you believe there are at least 60 co-called major issues floating around, which sincere and serious people believe should have been addressed by the platforms of the political parties. Less than half the issues are nationally important. The rest are dreams and dramas. The media and other political promoters love the overflow. Issues generate millions of dollars with which to stir the political pot every four years. The Fox organization has 12 issues on its list of major concerns. CNN has 15. Its happy-money time at the networks. Reading so many essays on issues has given us eyeball migraines. If we listed all the issues here, our column would require several pages of space. Weve become a full-fledged nanny nation. Americans have been led to believe that problems of all kinds and sizes deserve Washingtons attention, federal solutions, and taxpayer generosity. Local and state governments, and self-reliance, are old-fashioned, ancient history. Besides, Washington is where they money is and where it can be borrowed as needed so far. There are citizens and organizations which believe the federal government should be doing more about animal rights, death penalties, internet censorship, neighborhood crime, student loan bailouts, church-state relations, a national language, medical marijuana, child support, marriage, patient rights, school prayer, internet privacy, literacy, economic inequality, stem cells, and gender disparity to name just a few. There are other folks, we among them, who believe in addition to re-election fund raising and back slapping, Washington politicians spend too much time addressing soft issues, which make friendly voters and fewer enemies. They lack the right stuff to deal with the major problems, such as undisciplined federal spending, ballooning national debt, and hundreds of well paid but ineffective bureaucracies. We have thumbnail suggestions about a few of the issues that caused our eyeball migraines: Illegal immigrants Do nothing. If jobs dont improve, theyll hoof it home on their own. Building fences just makes it more difficult for them to climb over and leave. Climate change If its too hot or cold where you live, move! Thats why we bought Alaska, and stole Hawaii. Political corruption Power tends to corrupt. Term limits tend to correct the problem temporarily. Career politicians should be terminated regularly. The founding fathers would be appalled to know that except for plowing snow and issuing hunting and fishing licenses, state and local governments may soon be superfluous. In addition to the economy, national defense, health care, education, foreign policy, national security, and regulation of just about everything, Washington will soon be our only problem solver. In case of emergency, Americans will have to learn to dial area code 202-911 and be patient. All our people are busy at the moment. Please stay on the line. Your problem will be addressed as soon as possible by our next available intern. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 T rying to make sense out of the numbers in the recently completed primary election can be mind-boggling. Some of them have no rhyme or reason. There were some comments elsewhere that the senior population had lost its influence in the voting. Im not sure I agree with that, so I took a look at some of the closer races. The voters in the senior citizen precincts were dominant in the election of David Moore over Mike Amsden. On the State Road 200 Corridor, the area served by the South Marion Citizen, Moore won by 682 votes. In the northwest area served by the West Marion Messenger, Moore won by 108 votes. That means that in the area served by our two newspapers, mostly senior communities, Moore won by 790 votes. Over the entire county, he only won by 778 votes. In other words, we elected David Moore, while the rest of the county went with Amsden. We should make sure he knows that as he moves ahead as a county commissioner. The South Marion Citizen area went strongly for two candidates who didnt win. One was Jackie Porter in the school superintendent race. Porter actually dominated the western and eastern parts of the county, while George Tomyn won the more populous areas in the center, running from Summerfield up north through Ocala. The other candidate who didnt win but was strongly supported along State Road 200 was Pat Gabriel, and that was no surprise. She lives out here and is president of the Coalition and is popular with many people who know her. She actually outpolled winner Earl Arnett by 484 votes here, and didnt do that badly in Messenger territory, losing by 236 votes. But the rest of the county went strongly for Arnett, and Gabriel finished third, behind Francine Johannesen, in the total vote. In the sheriffs race, our area went along with the trend in the entire county, supporting Dan Kuhn by a narrow margin. In the school referenda, in the operating vote, some core precincts in the Ocala area and a couple of other scattered precincts went for passage, while the rest of the county said no. In the capital expense vote, only a small few precincts supported it, while the vast majority of Marion County voted in down. In both cases, the western area went against the school items. Of course, we also have to remember the timing of this primary. Its held in August, when many of our snowbirds are still up north. It still seems that the communities west of the Interstate have a lot of clout in Marion County politics. Any politician who doesnt think so is welcome to ignore the thousands of voters out here and then see what happens. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

T he biggest thing is that we should never forget how we all felt that day, Sept. 11, 2001, when the news started to spread. America is under attack. We sat and watched a couple of documentaries this past weekend, and they brought back all those feelings of anger, sorrow and, in some cases, despair, because we were sitting there in 2001 and couldnt do anything about it. We watched as people fell or jumped from the upper floors in an attempt to escape the smoke and fire. About 200 people died that way. It was a sickening thing to watch, and eventually you just wanted to close your eyes and move on. There were stories and interviews from people who were inside and were able to get out, telling us what went on and what desperation there was among the people in the offices. We saw a re-creation of the people reaching the lobby, only to be told by security guards to go back upstairs. We heard a re-telling of announcements broadcast throughout the buildings telling people the towers were safe and to remain in their offices. One man described how he split off from his group to work his way down. The others went up, and were never seen again. We saw, again, the swirling cloud of dust and ash advancing unchecked down the canyon streets of lower Manhattan, with people running for shelter with sheer panic in their eyes. We also saw the brave firefighters and police officers who stayed on the scene and went inside to try to put out the fire and get people out safely. Those were real videos of news footage from that day, and it was emotional watching, knowing what we know now, that many of them never got out. As we approach the 11-year mark (we hesitate to use the word anniversary), we see that some things have changed. Our troops got Osama bin Laden, but terrorist attacks and attempted attacks have still remained. The focus has shifted from organized group assaults to lone wolf attacks that, nevertheless, inflict pain and suffering on the targets. We still have to be vigilant. Theres a public service commercial running on television in New York that shows a person leaving a briefcase behind on public transportation. The words spoken are, If you see something, say something. Thats good advice for all of us. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, this nation was united as it hadnt been for years. Now we seem to have fallen back into the divisiveness, and we hope it doesnt weaken our defenses. Next Tuesday, find a ceremony to attend, fly your flag, and remember all those who died 11 years ago. And most of all, pray that something like this never happens again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remembering that fateful day The Corridor and the recent election Jim Flynn Columnist A government for all issues, great and small Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Work togetherWhile listening to the political news shows on Sunday morning I heard that the main Republican theme was that they believed in balanced budgets for our country. For years they kept telling us that you can spend more than your income and still balance our budgets if the additional money was spent on wars that were not part of our budget because they didnt count. President Reagan raised taxes on the American people, even those job creators of the top two percent and with this extra money still spent more than our countrys income. The first President Bush promised that there would be no new taxes while he was president but when he broke that pledge the American people were so disappointed that he was not re-elected. We were left without a road map to a balanced budget and the American people were disappointed with their elected Republican presidents. The American people were ready for a change and along came a charming young governor who won the support of the democratic primary and things changed after the election of William Jefferson Clinton as president of the United States. This new Democratic president worked with Congress on both sides of the aisle using Republican and Democratic ideas to help our country and the working class Americans.

R ecent news reports show that the building industry is starting to show more signs of recovery. Our thoughts turn to the workers who play the most prominent part in this. We start with ancient history and continue with some shocking stories. The beginning A builder, an electrician, and a lawyer were arguing about which profession was the oldest. The builder pointed out proudly that the first thing God had done was to build the earth. True, said the electrician, but before that, He said Let there be light. Youre both right, said the lawyer, but before the light there was chaos and who do you think created the chaos? Properly orientedClair had her house remodeled according to the rules of Feng Shui, in an attempt to improve her personal luck, health, and happiness. She kept a couple of lamps, particularly ugly, and not particularly in phase with the rest of the room. They had been handmade by her grandfather, and she couldnt bear to part with them. Having seen no noticeable improvement in her life after the remodeling, she consulted a professional. He quickly delivered his diagnosis; Youve got everything here but the kitsch in synch. ShockingI asked the electrician to change the circuit breaker, but he refused. He became an electrician because, as a child, his mother always took him to the outlet stores. In order to become an electrician, you have to go through a battery of tests. When an apprentice electrician made mistakes, his mother grounded him. The electricians favorite subject while in school was current events. An electrician friend drives a volts-wagon. In the dark A boy met his friend walking down the street with a whole sack of burned out light bulbs. He asked him what he was going to do with all those useless bulbs. His friend replied, Im going to build a dark room. Couldnt cut it While in prison Andy trained to become a carpenter. He did so well that he was recognized as one of the best in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the community. The warden was remodeling his kitchen and had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top. So he called Andy into his office and asked him to complete the job for him. But Andy refused. He told the warden, Gosh, Id really like to help you but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place. BuildersA good carpenter will always do his level best. The helper didnt laugh at the roofers joke because it was over his head. When the optometrists office was remodeled, it improved his eye site. Roofers are shingle minded. A retired couple that purchased a new home from a building contractor discovered that neither the house nor the builder was on the level. Shes a lady carpenter. You ought to see her build. Dad taught me all I know about remodeling by making an example of our house. Our house was like one of the great European cathedrals never finished. Beavers are the best dam builders in the world. When the first indoor tennis court was finished, the builder made a good net profit. After his classroom had been remodeled, the college professor was heard mooning about, missing the good old dais. By the book I once wrote a book on how to remodel your basement. Sounds pretty boring. Ill have you know it made the best cellars list. Hows that again?An electrician went to a hardware shop and asked the salesman, Do you have a four volt, two watt lamp? For what? No, two. Two what? Yes.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com President Clinton for a second term. This is when the president showed his true financial genius by working with Congress to produce a balanced budget his last three years in office as president. These balanced budgets not only allowed the country to meet its obligations but also started to cut into and paying off part of the federal deficit by several billion dollars each year. I believe that if members of the House of Representatives would only work with President Obama, we could help our country by putting Americans back to work with his jobs programs to rebuild roads and bridges and provide employment to taxpaying Americans. The payment of their income taxes would help America provide a balanced budget and bring our country back to prosperity. Jerry Segovis Ocala Bench of KnowledgeThere is a bench located in Anytown, USA, called the Bench of Knowledge, named so because Americans gather there to discuss pressing affairs and recommend ways to fix them. This Bench is replicated in town squares, city parks, houses of worship, wherever Americans congregate. These Americans number in the millions and are truly concerned about the issues confronting America. They are the heartbeat of this great nation. Some of their concerns are heard by our officials in one of the greatest Benches of Knowledge ... Congress. Alas, those concerns are not usually acted on. Instead, they are evaluated as to how they might impact the governments agenda ... or other officials ... or special interest groups. If found to have adverse effects they are either completely ignored or are so watered-down that they lose their effectiveness. During the past four years, the people have recommended several ways to significantly better our lives. Not a single one was enacted by Congress. Major issues like unemployment, the economy, immigration-reform, tax-reform, medical cost-control, have been simply ignored or grossly mishandled. Ideally, Congress is attuned to and sympathetic too the needs of Americans. So too the president. Unfortunately, they arent. This administration, instead of working to fix the problems that plague America, is more interested in attracting votes that would help them secure reelection. Their goal is to build a government a socialistlike government that even further excludes we citizens. Its unquestionably time for change ... a real change. Joe OHara Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen When Democrats accuse Republicans of wanting to end Medicare as we know it, they are right. But Democrats do too. Medicare as we know it is no longer an option. Leaving aside Medicares fatal moral defect that its coercively funded the program is doomed. It has tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities. It threatens working generations with a crushing tax burden. Because of the relative size of the Baby Boom generation, soon there will be only two workers to pay each retirees medical bills. Younger people might have other plans for their money. So somethings got to give, no matter which party is in power. If the government promises to pay for older peoples medical care essentially without limit, one would expect the bill to grow fast. Its the law of demand: as price falls, demand rises. Given that law, and assuming that taxes cant be jacked up, theres only one thing to do, short of abolishing the program: limit what the beneficiaries can buy. But older people, who vote in great numbers, wont like that. So politicians need to deceive. President Obamas health care plan would cut over $700 billion from Medicare. (He needs the money for Obamacare.) But he insists this will not reduce benefits. How can that be? The money will be taken from providers (and insurers under the popular alternative, Medicare Advantage), not beneficiaries, he says. But if reimbursements to providers are reduced, how could that not reduce benefits? Obama replies, eliminate waste. It sounds nice, but it means that government will second-guess the decisions of doctors and patients. Obamacare sets up an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), consisting of 15 presidential appointees (confirmed by the Senate), whose job is to limit spending. Now we run into the law of supply: as the price of a service falls, supply tends to fall also. We can anticipate that fewer doctors will accept Medicare patients and some on-the-edge hospitals will close. Patients will wait longer for services. Despite assurances that only unnecessary services will be eliminated, it is hard to have confidence that something as individualized as medical care can be managed by 15 distant experts. Medical care by number will become the standard in America. So the choice appears to be between Medicare bankruptcy and increasing government control over retirees health-care spending. The Republicans disagree. What do they propose? Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would change Medicare from a guaranteed-benefit plan to a guaranteed-contribution plan. Instead of paying whatever bills retirees incur, the government would provide premium support to enable them to buy private coverage. Retirees would also have the option of staying in traditional Medicare, but since the Republicans predict that their plan will bring costs down through competition, they forecast that Medicare costs will be controlled without limiting peoples choices. Suspicion is warranted. Theres very little difference between the two [Obama and Ryan) plans, write John Goodman and Thomas Saving of the National Center for Policy Analysis.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com portant difference in Medicare spending. Ryans misidentified voucher plan is not likely to deliver on cost control. The proposal would set up an insurance exchange in which companies offer government-designed policies. We know that providers will lobby the federal government to have their services included under the allowable plans. Moreover, Shikha Dalmia of the Reason Foundation writes, Insurance companies selling coverage to seniors will have a bigger incentive to lobby harder, since the money will go to them. AARP will have a strong incentive to lobby too. As a result, there will be more pressure to raise government spending and we know where that leads. Theres no such thing as a free lunch. Money always has strings, and he who pays the piper eventually calls the tune. Opponents of Medicare warned of all this but were ignored. The welfare state is a snare and a delusion. It creates dependence at the point of a gun, and then, once dependency is achieved, it imposes restrictions that create hardship. All the while, the taxpaying generations bear an ever-greater burden. Its time for the separation of medicine and state. Mutual-aid associations and other private for-profit and nonprofit organizations can provide for our medical needs without bureaucratic intrusion and coercion.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. MEDICARECONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 A ll we hear these days are complaining about the economy and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Politicians talk about it all the time and yet do nothing creative in the area of improving our economy. If you could put all the political speeches end to end, there would positively be no end to it. What we need to stimulate our economy is some kind of stimulation that does not come from the government. They stimulate me, all right, but not in the right way. This is where I step in. I assure you I am not running for any office. If the truth were known, I am running away from every office I can think of, especially my church office. I have no political agenda or aspirations; I am just a plain ordinary American citizen. I understand such creatures are an endangered species in todays economy. I am proud to be just a plain ordinary American. I am not middle-class, lower-class and certainly not high class. In fact, I have no class at all, and I am glad to leave it like that. I couldnt pass the test anyway. But I am doing my part in stimulating the economy. The secret plan I have can be boiled down to one word: vacation. This past week I have bravely gone where I have not been for a long time and that is on vacation. There is nothing like a vacation to stimulate many things, including the economy. It takes me a whole year to scrimp and save so the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I can go on a vacation. But in the end, it is well worth it. After a weeklong vacation, I am highly stimulated to return home where I can recuperate from all that stimulation. My wallet is still vibrating. I must confess that the primary stimulation in a vacation has to do with my credit card. It was stimulated in more ways than I care to remember, and at the end of the month the credit card company will remind me of all that stimulation. If the government does not have enough money in its coffers to balance the budget, it is not because I have not done my part. Every time I turned around there was a tax on something. Do not let this get out, but if the government knows I turned around so many times, they will find a way to tax that. I am not a conspiracy enthusiast, but I believe I stumbled onto a most blatant conspiracy with the United States government. I am here merely to give my humble testimony. The conspiracy, as I found it, focuses in on the airlines. I know this may sound like a far-fetched idea but I can only give my observation. The airlines are in a conspiracy with the United States government to take as much money from me as they possibly can. Not that I have a lot of money, I just would like to keep as much of it as possible for those occasions when I would like to take my wife out to a restaurant and just have a relaxing evening. That takes money. It began with checking in our luggage. Two bags for me and two bags for my wife equals too much luggage. We put our luggage on the conveyor belt and then were informed by the check-in clerk that each bag cost an extra $50. She swiped my credit card and even though I am not a mathematical wizard, I believe it was in the neighborhood of $200. I do not like that neighborhood. Later on, I sat down to figure it out and discovered it would be far cheaper not to take any luggage and then when arriving at my destination buy a new set of clothes. My entire wardrobe does not equal $100. Of course, on my wifes side of the closet it is a different story. We got our boarding pass and then the young woman behind the counter looked at me and asked a strange question. Sir, how tall are you? It has been a long time since anybody asked me that kind of a question. Why she wanted to know how tall I was could not be found in the corridors of my empty mind. I then informed her that I was 6. I see, she said as she stared at her computer screen. Then she explained. The average height of a male passenger on our plane is 5. You exceed that limit by 4 inches. I looked at my wife and we both shared a wonderful laugh. Then I look back at her behind the counter, but she was not laughing. There will be an extra charge for your exceeding our height limit. My humble effort at stimulating the economy O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder Lets see, she said as she studied the computer screen, thats 4 inches times $15 per inch which equals $60. She then swiped my credit card, again, and charged it with the $60 extra fee. That was just the beginning of the swiping by the airlines. By the time our vacation was over, I was totally swiped out. When I got home I meditated a little bit on what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). I really do not mind rendering to Caesar but I just wish he wasnt so greedy.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 12 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M y sister and I have come up with a game we both enjoy, namely we e-mail trivia questions back and forth to each other based on events in our childhoods. We are really enjoying ourselves stretching our memory powers back 50 years, which to us seems like yesterday. Our inquiries into the past have included the color of my first prom dress, our favorite restaurants (most no longer in business) and experiences and events that shaped our lives. We are comfortable in these remembrances because they bring back a time when life was simpler and there were none of the encumbrances we have to deal with today. I believe my sister and I have found common ground when we were both innocent of the trials and tribulations we were to both face as grown-ups. It was a safe time for us before we became parents and adults. In Judaism, especially at this particular holy time of the year, remembering plays a major role in the High Holy Day liturgy. As Jews, we are exhorted to remember our past deeds, a kind of soul taking stock situation where we look back on all our deeds, good and bad, and try to repent and make amends. We remember those who have passed away during the year at a special service called Yiskor and we remember our covenant that God made with our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, promising to be our God to redeem us and to bring us to the Promised Land. Jews have very long memories, not so surprisingly, in view of their long history. From the very dawn of Jewish history, memory has been a potent force for peoplehood. At every major festival, in the prayer for wine sanctifying the holiday, The Exodus from Egypt is recalled. This seminal event in the history of the Jews was the catalyst the propelled them from slavery to freedom, from a ragtag group to a nation with a purpose and destiny. It was the preparation for the Revelation At Sinai and the Giving of the Torah that was to shape the former slaves into a nation with moral laws and a guide to living. With the laws governing all phases of life revealed, the eventual result of this all was the entrance into the Promised Land where the Israelites where able to live, settle and govern themselves. Throughout the ages, the words of the Jewish prophets echoed down to the people to follow Gods laws (mitzvot) or bring calamity upon themselves. We have only to look at the signs of global warming and the extinction of certain species to see the wisdom in these teachings. By ignoring those in need, by not providing for the less fortunate, we show our lack of concern and disregard for all who are made in the image of God. At this season we remember the sacrifices Jews made through the ages, sometimes with their very lives to remain faithful to Judaism. It is believed that the special Kol Nidre prayer said on the eve of the Day of Atonement was composed during the Inquisition when Jews were often coerced into baptism or face death. The prayer speaks of vain vows to God not being able to be fulfilled, a reference to forced conversions to Catholicism in order to save their families. Their martyrdom, in some cases, and the recent memories of the Holocaust are remembered during this holiday season. In the Hebrew Bible, there are many references to memory. The ancient Israelites were exhorted to remember the Amalekites, a warrior tribe that preyed on the stragglers of the Israelite band as they moved through the wilderness to the Promised Land. The Ten Commandments tells us to remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy and God remembers Noah and his family and the animals in the Ark and saves them from destruction. Each time a Jew dons a prayer shawl, tallit, he or she is remembering the commandments, mitzvot, that God has enjoined on the Jewish people, such a loving ones neighbor as oneself, caring for the poor, visiting the sick, observing the festivals and the Sabbath, creating peace and making the world a better place. As she/ he gazes at the ritual fringes, called tzizit; they serve to remind the worshipper of all that is expected to one who is a member of the Jewish people. As we approach the Jewish New Year of 5773, may we all remember to treat the world gently. May we remember to help those who suffer in silence: the disenfranchised, the homeless, the cast-offs of society. May we remember what draws us together as inhabitants of this planet, rather than the ideologies that draw us apart. May we remember that we were all created by the One Source, though this Source has many names and methods of worship. May we all remember, to remember. Lshannah Tovah umitoocah, a happy and sweet New Year. (The Jewish Year of 5773 starts the evening of Sept. 16.)

This event will help raise funds for the benefit of the Veterans Club and all of their activities. Many people arent aware of the fact that the Cherrywood Veterans Club reaches out to veterans at the local but also at the county, state and even national levels. A registered, not for profit organization, the Veterans are a tax exempt organization that participates in among other things: Honor Flights for World War II veterans allowing those veterans to fly to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II monument. Fisher House sponsorship: Fisher House is a free of charge place for families to stay with their veteran as they recover in a VA facility. Ritz Veterans House: Based in Ocala, this facility provides lodging and support for veterans transitioning back into society. Fort McCoy Retirement Home is a location for qualifying veterans to live out their lives in peace and security. S.O.S. stands for Support our Soldiers. This project provides Care packages to our troops overseas in harms way. These packages contain assorted food treats; candy; toiletries; grooming supplies and other touches of home that would otherwise be impossible to get. These are but a few of the programs that our veterans are actively engaged in but like all organizations, the veterans need money to continue to do these good works. In October, a fund raising Bowl-AThon will be held at Galaxy Lanes in Ocala and we are asking everyone for support. If you own a small business and would like to be part of this great event, corporate sponsorships are available for as little as $25 up to $100; if you are a bowler but not on a team, you can sign up with Geri in the office; if you have a bowling team and would like to participate or if you just want to make a donation, you are more than welcome to do so. Remember, all donations are tax deductible. More details will follow in this column but for up to the minute information, contact John at urperssec@yahoo.com The veterans sincerely thank our bowlers; SanDee, president of the Cherrywood bowling league and Fran, the secretary, for their whole hearted support. What a great place Cherrywood is to live and play. 100 Days of Summer OctoberfestStart with a great theme for a party like say, OctoberFest; put on a delicious dinner of Bratwurst with all the fixings; add a live band called Northern Sounds; and then make the whole thing free of charge and you have the makings of one fantastic end to the 100 Days of Summer events at Cherrywood.

TriviaOn Sept. 19 at 7 p.m., Rich Hurley will put up the questions on the big screen at the clubhouse and try to stump us with questions on everything from history to entertainment and maybe even the history of entertainment. This is a great evening of fun and friendly competition as teams vie for a small cash prize and bragging rights at being the brightest folk in Cherrywood. If youve never been to a Trivia Night, youre missing a lot of fun. Teams of three or four bring their own snacks and drinks; find a table and then watch the questions as they pop up on the screen. Some of the answers that the people come up will amaze and astound but mostly, theyll just make you laugh. If you dont have enough people for a team or youve never come out, feel free to walk in, pay a dollar and youll be assigned to a team. You dont need to be shy because everyone is pretty much clueless to the questions but they do have a good time. Proceeds from the evening go to the Wounded Warrior Project so youll not only have a good time, but youll have helped a very worthy cause as well.

Spotlight On Excellence Each week 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 we honor long time residents Bill and Josephine Spangenberg. Bill and Jo, as she likes to be called, were born and grew up in the New York City area. Jo, an only child went to Our Lady of Angels for grade school and graduated from Saint Joseph High School. After attending Brooklyn Business College for a year, she took work at Crumb & Forster as a private secretary. At the ripe age of 16, Bill quit school and went to work on the docks as a Freight Checker for a trucking company. One of his jobs was picking up the payroll for the truckers. In those days the employees were all paid in cash so he had to go to the home office, and then take the money in a brown paper bag on the subway back to the office. One day there was a strike of longshoreman. In the days that followed the demonstrations became violent with cars being over turned and fires set. Bill called into work and said that he wouldnt be in because he wasnt about to cross the picket lines and risk injury or worse. When the boss told him he had no choice, Bills Dad picked up the phone and said emphatically, He quit! It was then that Bill decided to join the military. He had tried in vain with all the branches but weighed five pounds less than the minimum weight standard. The Korean War had just begun and so the requirements were lowered and Bill went into the Air Force. Bill saw service in Lyon, France, Tripoli and Japan. He received training in fabric; painting and parachute rigging. While he didnt know it at the time, all of these would serve him well in the future. In those days, surprisingly, he traveled by ship to his destinations. When he shipped out to Germany on his way to France, Bill left from Brooklyn Army TerCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE15 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 minal aboard a troop ship. He earned his keep so to speak cutting meat in the galley. Apparently cutting pork chops on a band saw appealed to him because he now cuts out wooden carvings. Following his tour of duty, Bill returned home and went looking for a friend of his from before his enlistment. As luck would have it, the friend was getting married in just a few days and he asked Bill to be an usher at his wedding. Jo was a maid of honor in the bridal party of the same wedding. They met at the church and there was an immediate attraction. After dating for two years, the two of them were married and began their lives together. After living with her mom for a short time, the two saved up enough money and with the help of the GI Bill, bought a house in Islip, New York. Bill took a job at Trans World Airlines and Jo and he started their family. Jo was an only child and Bill has one sister; Carol Vaughn who lives in Roxbury, New York. To make up for it, the two have six children; five boys and a girl. Their eyes sparkle with pride as they point to pictures around their house of each one. Charles is the eldest and lives in South Carolina with his wife Patty and two children; William and his wife Laura live in Chuluota, Florida, with their four children; Paul and Helene live in Arizona with their three children. Their son John and his wife Melinda and two children live in Indiana. Mary, Bill and Jos daughter, is a school teacher in Arizona, and her brother John, wrought iron specialist also resides in Arizona. All totaled, Jo and Bill have 11 grandchildren. Needless to say, Jos full time career was raising the family while Bill went to work for TWA. He served there for an impressive 40 years working with upholstery; decorating and painting. His career was highlighted by working on and helping to customize the planes that two separate popes rode in. Among other things, he painted the Seal of the Vatican on the nose of each plane for Pope Paul VI and Pope John XXIII. For his excellent work, he and the ground crew received medals and awards from both the Vatican and from TWA. While working at TWA, Bill put in several suggestions on improving productivity and profits for the company. These suggestions were rewarded with points that could be redeemed for merchandise Jo and Bill Spangenberg and Bill chose several wood working saws. Working in wood became his passion and hobby and without formal training in this type of art, he has done not only the military statues for the Veterans Club but also did an Iwo Jima Memorial Plaque that proudly hangs in the VFW. When Bill and Jo retired, they received a video from the AARP showing Cherrywood Estates. Having endured the cold long enough, they decided to move down to Florida and theyve never looked back. They enjoy the people of this community and the many activities that go on. Jo has been active in dominoes and loves the 100 Days of Summer events as well as the many other parties. She could usually be found in the kitchen helping out. Bill is active in the Veterans Club and sells the 50/50 tickets at every event. He also uses his woodworking skills to make the various wood statues found with next to our flags at the various veterans programs. Along with the Veterans Club, Bill is a member of the VFW and American Legion. We are grateful to Bill and Jo for all they have done and all they do for our quality of life here at Cherrywood and our community.

TriviaOn Sept. 19 at 7 p.m., Rich Hurley will put up the questions on the big screen at the clubhouse and try to stump us with questions on everything from history to entertainment and maybe even the history of entertainment. This is a great evening of fun and friendly competition as teams vie for a small cash prize and bragging rights at being the brightest folk in Cherrywood. If youve never been to a Trivia Night, youre missing a lot of fun. Teams of three or four bring their own snacks and drinks; find a table and then watch the questions as they pop up on the screen. Some of the answers that the people come up will amaze and astound but mostly, theyll just make you laugh. If you dont have enough people for a team or youve never come out, feel free to walk in, pay a dollar and youll be assigned to a team. You dont need to be shy because everyone is pretty much clueless to the questions but they do have a good time. Proceeds from the evening go to the Wounded Warrior Project so youll not only have a good time, but youll have helped a very worthy cause as well. See you at Trivia Night where the Guppies will again try their luck at winning. Casino Resort and Spa getawayBiloxi is calling all Cherrywood gamers for a four day, three night get-a-way.

Spotlight On Excellence Each week 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 we honor long time residents Bill and Josephine Spangenberg. Bill and Jo, as she likes to be called, were born and grew up in the New York City area. Jo, an only child went to Our Lady of Angels for grade school and graduated from Saint Joseph High School. After attending Brooklyn Business College for a year, she took work at Crumb & Forster as a private secretary. At the ripe age of 16, Bill quit school and went to work on the docks as a Freight Checker for a trucking company. One of his jobs was picking up the payroll for the truckers. In those days the employees were all paid in cash so he had to go to the home office, and then take the money in a brown paper bag on the subway back to the office. One day there was a strike of longshoreman. In the days that followed the demonstrations became violent with cars being over turned and fires set. Bill called into work and said that he wouldnt be in because he wasnt about to cross the picket lines and risk injury or worse. When the boss told him he had no choice, Bills Dad picked up the phone and said emphatically, He quit! It was then that Bill decided to join the military. He had tried in vain with all the branches but weighed five pounds less than the minimum weight standard. The Korean War had just begun and so the requirements were lowered and Bill went into the Air Force. Bill saw service in Lyon, France, Tripoli and Japan. He received training in fabric; painting and parachute rigging. While he didnt know it at the time, all of these would serve him well in the future. In those days, surprisingly, he traveled by ship to his destinations. When he shipped out to Germany on his way to France, Bill left from Brooklyn Army TerCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE15 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 minal aboard a troop ship. He earned his keep so to speak cutting meat in the galley. Apparently cutting pork chops on a band saw appealed to him because he now cuts out wooden carvings. Following his tour of duty, Bill returned home and went looking for a friend of his from before his enlistment. As luck would have it, the friend was getting married in just a few days and he asked Bill to be an usher at his wedding. Jo was a maid of honor in the bridal party of the same wedding. They met at the church and there was an immediate attraction. After dating for two years, the two of them were married and began their lives together. After living with her mom for a short time, the two saved up enough money and with the help of the GI Bill, bought a house in Islip, New York. Bill took a job at Trans World Airlines and Jo and he started their family. Jo was an only child and Bill has one sister; Carol Vaughn who lives in Roxbury, New York. To make up for it, the two have six children; five boys and a girl. Their eyes sparkle with pride as they point to pictures around their house of each one. Charles is the eldest and lives in South Carolina with his wife Patty and two children; William and his wife Laura live in Chuluota, Florida, with their four children; Paul and Helene live in Arizona with their three children. Their son John and his wife Melinda and two children live in Indiana. Mary, Bill and Jos daughter, is a school teacher in Arizona, and her brother John, wrought iron specialist also resides in Arizona. All totaled, Jo and Bill have 11 grandchildren. Needless to say, Jos full time career was raising the family while Bill went to work for TWA. He served there for an impressive 40 years working with upholstery; decorating and painting. His career was highlighted by working on and helping to customize the planes that two separate popes rode in. Among other things, he painted the Seal of the Vatican on the nose of each plane for Pope Paul VI and Pope John XXIII. For his excellent work, he and the ground crew received medals and awards from both the Vatican and from TWA. While working at TWA, Bill put in several suggestions on improving productivity and profits for the company. These suggestions were rewarded with points that could be redeemed for merchandise Jo and Bill Spangenberg and Bill chose several wood working saws. Working in wood became his passion and hobby and without formal training in this type of art, he has done not only the military statues for the Veterans Club but also did an Iwo Jima Memorial Plaque that proudly hangs in the VFW. When Bill and Jo retired, they received a video from the AARP showing Cherrywood Estates. Having endured the cold long enough, they decided to move down to Florida and theyve never looked back. They enjoy the people of this community and the many activities that go on. Jo has been active in dominoes and loves the 100 Days of Summer events as well as the many other parties. She could usually be found in the kitchen helping out. Bill is active in the Veterans Club and sells the 50/50 tickets at every event. He also uses his woodworking skills to make the various wood statues found with next to our flags at the various veterans programs. Along with the Veterans Club, Bill is a member of the VFW and American Legion. We are grateful to Bill and Jo for all they have done and all they do for our quality of life here at Cherrywood and our community.

This event will help raise funds for the benefit of the Veterans Club and all of their activities. Many people arent aware of the fact that the Cherrywood Veterans Club reaches out to veterans at the local but also at the county, state and even national levels. A registered, not for profit organization, the Veterans are a tax exempt organization that participates in among other things: Honor Flights for World War II veterans allowing those veterans to fly to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II monument. Fisher House sponsorship: Fisher House is a free of charge place for families to stay with their veteran as they recover in a VA facility. Ritz Veterans House: Based in Ocala, this facility provides lodging and support for veterans transitioning back into society. Fort McCoy Retirement Home is a location for qualifying veterans to live out their lives in peace and security. S.O.S. stands for Support our Soldiers. This project provides Care packages to our troops overseas in harms way. These packages contain assorted food treats; candy; toiletries; grooming supplies and other touches of home that would otherwise be impossible to get. These are but a few of the programs that our veterans are actively engaged in but like all organizations, the veterans need money to continue to do these good works. In October, a fund raising Bowl-AThon will be held at Galaxy Lanes in Ocala and we are asking everyone for support. If you own a small business and would like to be part of this great event, corporate sponsorships are available for as little as $25 up to $100; if you are a bowler but not on a team, you can sign up with Geri in the office; if you have a bowling team and would like to participate or if you just want to make a donation, you are more than welcome to do so. Remember, all donations are tax deductible. More details will follow in this column but for up to the minute information, contact John at urperssec@yahoo.com The veterans sincerely thank our bowlers; SanDee, president of the Cherrywood bowling league and Fran, the secretary, for their whole hearted support.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 12 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M y sister and I have come up with a game we both enjoy, namely we e-mail trivia questions back and forth to each other based on events in our childhoods. We are really enjoying ourselves stretching our memory powers back 50 years, which to us seems like yesterday. Our inquiries into the past have included the color of my first prom dress, our favorite restaurants (most no longer in business) and experiences and events that shaped our lives. We are comfortable in these remembrances because they bring back a time when life was simpler and there were none of the encumbrances we have to deal with today. I believe my sister and I have found common ground when we were both innocent of the trials and tribulations we were to both face as grown-ups. It was a safe time for us before we became parents and adults. In Judaism, especially at this particular holy time of the year, remembering plays a major role in the High Holy Day liturgy. As Jews, we are exhorted to remember our past deeds, a kind of soul taking stock situation where we look back on all our deeds, good and bad, and try to repent and make amends. We remember those who have passed away during the year at a special service called Yiskor and we remember our covenant that God made with our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, promising to be our God to redeem us and to bring us to the Promised Land. Jews have very long memories, not so surprisingly, in view of their long history. From the very dawn of Jewish history, memory has been a potent force for peoplehood. At every major festival, in the prayer for wine sanctifying the holiday, The Exodus from Egypt is recalled. This seminal event in the history of the Jews was the catalyst the propelled them from slavery to freedom, from a ragtag group to a nation with a purpose and destiny. It was the preparation for the Revelation At Sinai and the Giving of the Torah that was to shape the former slaves into a nation with moral laws and a guide to living. With the laws governing all phases of life revealed, the eventual result of this all was the entrance into the Promised Land where the Israelites where able to live, settle and govern themselves. Throughout the ages, the words of the Jewish prophets echoed down to the people to follow Gods laws (mitzvot) or bring calamity upon themselves. We have only to look at the signs of global warming and the extinction of certain species to see the wisdom in these teachings. By ignoring those in need, by not providing for the less fortunate, we show our lack of concern and disregard for all who are made in the image of God. At this season we remember the sacrifices Jews made through the ages, sometimes with their very lives to remain faithful to Judaism. It is believed that the special Kol Nidre prayer said on the eve of the Day of Atonement was composed during the Inquisition when Jews were often coerced into baptism or face death. The prayer speaks of vain vows to God not being able to be fulfilled, a reference to forced conversions to Catholicism in order to save their families. Their martyrdom, in some cases, and the recent memories of the Holocaust are remembered during this holiday season. In the Hebrew Bible, there are many references to memory. The ancient Israelites were exhorted to remember the Amalekites, a warrior tribe that preyed on the stragglers of the Israelite band as they moved through the wilderness to the Promised Land. The Ten Commandments tells us to remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy and God remembers Noah and his family and the animals in the Ark and saves them from destruction. Each time a Jew dons a prayer shawl, tallit, he or she is remembering the commandments, mitzvot, that God has enjoined on the Jewish people, such a loving ones neighbor as oneself, caring for the poor, visiting the sick, observing the festivals and the Sabbath, creating peace and making the world a better place. As she/ he gazes at the ritual fringes, called tzizit; they serve to remind the worshipper of all that is expected to one who is a member of the Jewish people. As we approach the Jewish New Year of 5773, may we all remember to treat the world gently. May we remember to help those who suffer in silence: the disenfranchised, the homeless, the cast-offs of society. May we remember what draws us together as inhabitants of this planet, rather than the ideologies that draw us apart. May we remember that we were all created by the One Source, though this Source has many names and methods of worship. May we all remember, to remember. Lshannah Tovah umitoocah, a happy and sweet New Year. (The Jewish Year of 5773 starts the evening of Sept. 16.)

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com portant difference in Medicare spending. Ryans misidentified voucher plan is not likely to deliver on cost control. The proposal would set up an insurance exchange in which companies offer government-designed policies. We know that providers will lobby the federal government to have their services included under the allowable plans. Moreover, Shikha Dalmia of the Reason Foundation writes, Insurance companies selling coverage to seniors will have a bigger incentive to lobby harder, since the money will go to them. AARP will have a strong incentive to lobby too. As a result, there will be more pressure to raise government spending and we know where that leads. Theres no such thing as a free lunch. Money always has strings, and he who pays the piper eventually calls the tune. Opponents of Medicare warned of all this but were ignored. The welfare state is a snare and a delusion. It creates dependence at the point of a gun, and then, once dependency is achieved, it imposes restrictions that create hardship. All the while, the taxpaying generations bear an ever-greater burden. Its time for the separation of medicine and state. Mutual-aid associations and other private for-profit and nonprofit organizations can provide for our medical needs without bureaucratic intrusion and coercion.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. MEDICARECONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 A ll we hear these days are complaining about the economy and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Politicians talk about it all the time and yet do nothing creative in the area of improving our economy. If you could put all the political speeches end to end, there would positively be no end to it. What we need to stimulate our economy is some kind of stimulation that does not come from the government. They stimulate me, all right, but not in the right way. This is where I step in. I assure you I am not running for any office. If the truth were known, I am running away from every office I can think of, especially my church office. I have no political agenda or aspirations; I am just a plain ordinary American citizen. I understand such creatures are an endangered species in todays economy. I am proud to be just a plain ordinary American. I am not middle-class, lower-class and certainly not high class. In fact, I have no class at all, and I am glad to leave it like that. I couldnt pass the test anyway. But I am doing my part in stimulating the economy. The secret plan I have can be boiled down to one word: vacation. This past week I have bravely gone where I have not been for a long time and that is on vacation. There is nothing like a vacation to stimulate many things, including the economy. It takes me a whole year to scrimp and save so the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I can go on a vacation. But in the end, it is well worth it. After a weeklong vacation, I am highly stimulated to return home where I can recuperate from all that stimulation. My wallet is still vibrating. I must confess that the primary stimulation in a vacation has to do with my credit card. It was stimulated in more ways than I care to remember, and at the end of the month the credit card company will remind me of all that stimulation. If the government does not have enough money in its coffers to balance the budget, it is not because I have not done my part. Every time I turned around there was a tax on something. Do not let this get out, but if the government knows I turned around so many times, they will find a way to tax that. I am not a conspiracy enthusiast, but I believe I stumbled onto a most blatant conspiracy with the United States government. I am here merely to give my humble testimony. The conspiracy, as I found it, focuses in on the airlines. I know this may sound like a far-fetched idea but I can only give my observation. The airlines are in a conspiracy with the United States government to take as much money from me as they possibly can. Not that I have a lot of money, I just would like to keep as much of it as possible for those occasions when I would like to take my wife out to a restaurant and just have a relaxing evening. That takes money. It began with checking in our luggage. Two bags for me and two bags for my wife equals too much luggage. We put our luggage on the conveyor belt and then were informed by the check-in clerk that each bag cost an extra $50. She swiped my credit card and even though I am not a mathematical wizard, I believe it was in the neighborhood of $200. I do not like that neighborhood. Later on, I sat down to figure it out and discovered it would be far cheaper not to take any luggage and then when arriving at my destination buy a new set of clothes. My entire wardrobe does not equal $100. Of course, on my wifes side of the closet it is a different story. We got our boarding pass and then the young woman behind the counter looked at me and asked a strange question. Sir, how tall are you? It has been a long time since anybody asked me that kind of a question. Why she wanted to know how tall I was could not be found in the corridors of my empty mind. I then informed her that I was 6. I see, she said as she stared at her computer screen. Then she explained. The average height of a male passenger on our plane is 5. You exceed that limit by 4 inches. I looked at my wife and we both shared a wonderful laugh. Then I look back at her behind the counter, but she was not laughing. There will be an extra charge for your exceeding our height limit. My humble effort at stimulating the economy O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder Lets see, she said as she studied the computer screen, thats 4 inches times $15 per inch which equals $60. She then swiped my credit card, again, and charged it with the $60 extra fee. That was just the beginning of the swiping by the airlines. By the time our vacation was over, I was totally swiped out. When I got home I meditated a little bit on what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). I really do not mind rendering to Caesar but I just wish he wasnt so greedy.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com President Clinton for a second term. This is when the president showed his true financial genius by working with Congress to produce a balanced budget his last three years in office as president. These balanced budgets not only allowed the country to meet its obligations but also started to cut into and paying off part of the federal deficit by several billion dollars each year. I believe that if members of the House of Representatives would only work with President Obama, we could help our country by putting Americans back to work with his jobs programs to rebuild roads and bridges and provide employment to taxpaying Americans. The payment of their income taxes would help America provide a balanced budget and bring our country back to prosperity. Jerry Segovis Ocala Bench of KnowledgeThere is a bench located in Anytown, USA, called the Bench of Knowledge, named so because Americans gather there to discuss pressing affairs and recommend ways to fix them. This Bench is replicated in town squares, city parks, houses of worship, wherever Americans congregate. These Americans number in the millions and are truly concerned about the issues confronting America. They are the heartbeat of this great nation. Some of their concerns are heard by our officials in one of the greatest Benches of Knowledge ... Congress. Alas, those concerns are not usually acted on. Instead, they are evaluated as to how they might impact the governments agenda ... or other officials ... or special interest groups. If found to have adverse effects they are either completely ignored or are so watered-down that they lose their effectiveness. During the past four years, the people have recommended several ways to significantly better our lives. Not a single one was enacted by Congress. Major issues like unemployment, the economy, immigration-reform, tax-reform, medical cost-control, have been simply ignored or grossly mishandled. Ideally, Congress is attuned to and sympathetic too the needs of Americans. So too the president. Unfortunately, they arent. This administration, instead of working to fix the problems that plague America, is more interested in attracting votes that would help them secure reelection. Their goal is to build a government a socialistlike government that even further excludes we citizens. Its unquestionably time for change ... a real change. Joe OHara Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen When Democrats accuse Republicans of wanting to end Medicare as we know it, they are right. But Democrats do too. Medicare as we know it is no longer an option. Leaving aside Medicares fatal moral defect that its coercively funded the program is doomed. It has tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities. It threatens working generations with a crushing tax burden. Because of the relative size of the Baby Boom generation, soon there will be only two workers to pay each retirees medical bills. Younger people might have other plans for their money. So somethings got to give, no matter which party is in power. If the government promises to pay for older peoples medical care essentially without limit, one would expect the bill to grow fast. Its the law of demand: as price falls, demand rises. Given that law, and assuming that taxes cant be jacked up, theres only one thing to do, short of abolishing the program: limit what the beneficiaries can buy. But older people, who vote in great numbers, wont like that. So politicians need to deceive. President Obamas health care plan would cut over $700 billion from Medicare. (He needs the money for Obamacare.) But he insists this will not reduce benefits. How can that be? The money will be taken from providers (and insurers under the popular alternative, Medicare Advantage), not beneficiaries, he says. But if reimbursements to providers are reduced, how could that not reduce benefits? Obama replies, eliminate waste. It sounds nice, but it means that government will second-guess the decisions of doctors and patients. Obamacare sets up an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), consisting of 15 presidential appointees (confirmed by the Senate), whose job is to limit spending. Now we run into the law of supply: as the price of a service falls, supply tends to fall also. We can anticipate that fewer doctors will accept Medicare patients and some on-the-edge hospitals will close. Patients will wait longer for services. Despite assurances that only unnecessary services will be eliminated, it is hard to have confidence that something as individualized as medical care can be managed by 15 distant experts. Medical care by number will become the standard in America. So the choice appears to be between Medicare bankruptcy and increasing government control over retirees health-care spending. The Republicans disagree. What do they propose? Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would change Medicare from a guaranteed-benefit plan to a guaranteed-contribution plan. Instead of paying whatever bills retirees incur, the government would provide premium support to enable them to buy private coverage. Retirees would also have the option of staying in traditional Medicare, but since the Republicans predict that their plan will bring costs down through competition, they forecast that Medicare costs will be controlled without limiting peoples choices. Suspicion is warranted. Theres very little difference between the two [Obama and Ryan) plans, write John Goodman and Thomas Saving of the National Center for Policy Analysis.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com H ow many national issues does it take to make an interesting presidential election? Would you believe there are at least 60 co-called major issues floating around, which sincere and serious people believe should have been addressed by the platforms of the political parties. Less than half the issues are nationally important. The rest are dreams and dramas. The media and other political promoters love the overflow. Issues generate millions of dollars with which to stir the political pot every four years. The Fox organization has 12 issues on its list of major concerns. CNN has 15. Its happy-money time at the networks. Reading so many essays on issues has given us eyeball migraines. If we listed all the issues here, our column would require several pages of space. Weve become a full-fledged nanny nation. Americans have been led to believe that problems of all kinds and sizes deserve Washingtons attention, federal solutions, and taxpayer generosity. Local and state governments, and self-reliance, are old-fashioned, ancient history. Besides, Washington is where they money is and where it can be borrowed as needed so far. There are citizens and organizations which believe the federal government should be doing more about animal rights, death penalties, internet censorship, neighborhood crime, student loan bailouts, church-state relations, a national language, medical marijuana, child support, marriage, patient rights, school prayer, internet privacy, literacy, economic inequality, stem cells, and gender disparity to name just a few. There are other folks, we among them, who believe in addition to re-election fund raising and back slapping, Washington politicians spend too much time addressing soft issues, which make friendly voters and fewer enemies. They lack the right stuff to deal with the major problems, such as undisciplined federal spending, ballooning national debt, and hundreds of well paid but ineffective bureaucracies. We have thumbnail suggestions about a few of the issues that caused our eyeball migraines: Illegal immigrants Do nothing. If jobs dont improve, theyll hoof it home on their own. Building fences just makes it more difficult for them to climb over and leave. Climate change If its too hot or cold where you live, move! Thats why we bought Alaska, and stole Hawaii. Political corruption Power tends to corrupt. Term limits tend to correct the problem temporarily. Career politicians should be terminated regularly. The founding fathers would be appalled to know that except for plowing snow and issuing hunting and fishing licenses, state and local governments may soon be superfluous. In addition to the economy, national defense, health care, education, foreign policy, national security, and regulation of just about everything, Washington will soon be our only problem solver. In case of emergency, Americans will have to learn to dial area code 202-911 and be patient. All our people are busy at the moment. Please stay on the line. Your problem will be addressed as soon as possible by our next available intern. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 7, 2012 T rying to make sense out of the numbers in the recently completed primary election can be mind-boggling. Some of them have no rhyme or reason. There were some comments elsewhere that the senior population had lost its influence in the voting. Im not sure I agree with that, so I took a look at some of the closer races. The voters in the senior citizen precincts were dominant in the election of David Moore over Mike Amsden. On the State Road 200 Corridor, the area served by the South Marion Citizen, Moore won by 682 votes. In the northwest area served by the West Marion Messenger, Moore won by 108 votes. That means that in the area served by our two newspapers, mostly senior communities, Moore won by 790 votes. Over the entire county, he only won by 778 votes. In other words, we elected David Moore, while the rest of the county went with Amsden. We should make sure he knows that as he moves ahead as a county commissioner. The South Marion Citizen area went strongly for two candidates who didnt win. One was Jackie Porter in the school superintendent race. Porter actually dominated the western and eastern parts of the county, while George Tomyn won the more populous areas in the center, running from Summerfield up north through Ocala. The other candidate who didnt win but was strongly supported along State Road 200 was Pat Gabriel, and that was no surprise. She lives out here and is president of the Coalition and is popular with many people who know her. She actually outpolled winner Earl Arnett by 484 votes here, and didnt do that badly in Messenger territory, losing by 236 votes. But the rest of the county went strongly for Arnett, and Gabriel finished third, behind Francine Johannesen, in the total vote. In the sheriffs race, our area went along with the trend in the entire county, supporting Dan Kuhn by a narrow margin. In the school referenda, in the operating vote, some core precincts in the Ocala area and a couple of other scattered precincts went for passage, while the rest of the county said no. In the capital expense vote, only a small few precincts supported it, while the vast majority of Marion County voted in down. In both cases, the western area went against the school items. Of course, we also have to remember the timing of this primary. Its held in August, when many of our snowbirds are still up north. It still seems that the communities west of the Interstate have a lot of clout in Marion County politics. Any politician who doesnt think so is welcome to ignore the thousands of voters out here and then see what happens. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

T he biggest thing is that we should never forget how we all felt that day, Sept. 11, 2001, when the news started to spread. America is under attack. We sat and watched a couple of documentaries this past weekend, and they brought back all those feelings of anger, sorrow and, in some cases, despair, because we were sitting there in 2001 and couldnt do anything about it. We watched as people fell or jumped from the upper floors in an attempt to escape the smoke and fire. About 200 people died that way. It was a sickening thing to watch, and eventually you just wanted to close your eyes and move on. There were stories and interviews from people who were inside and were able to get out, telling us what went on and what desperation there was among the people in the offices. We saw a re-creation of the people reaching the lobby, only to be told by security guards to go back upstairs. We heard a re-telling of announcements broadcast throughout the buildings telling people the towers were safe and to remain in their offices. One man described how he split off from his group to work his way down. The others went up, and were never seen again. We saw, again, the swirling cloud of dust and ash advancing unchecked down the canyon streets of lower Manhattan, with people running for shelter with sheer panic in their eyes. We also saw the brave firefighters and police officers who stayed on the scene and went inside to try to put out the fire and get people out safely. Those were real videos of news footage from that day, and it was emotional watching, knowing what we know now, that many of them never got out. As we approach the 11-year mark (we hesitate to use the word anniversary), we see that some things have changed. Our troops got Osama bin Laden, but terrorist attacks and attempted attacks have still remained. The focus has shifted from organized group assaults to lone wolf attacks that, nevertheless, inflict pain and suffering on the targets. We still have to be vigilant. Theres a public service commercial running on television in New York that shows a person leaving a briefcase behind on public transportation. The words spoken are, If you see something, say something. Thats good advice for all of us. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, this nation was united as it hadnt been for years. Now we seem to have fallen back into the divisiveness, and we hope it doesnt weaken our defenses. Next Tuesday, find a ceremony to attend, fly your flag, and remember all those who died 11 years ago. And most of all, pray that something like this never happens again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remembering that fateful day The Corridor and the recent election Jim Flynn Columnist A government for all issues, great and small Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Work togetherWhile listening to the political news shows on Sunday morning I heard that the main Republican theme was that they believed in balanced budgets for our country. For years they kept telling us that you can spend more than your income and still balance our budgets if the additional money was spent on wars that were not part of our budget because they didnt count. President Reagan raised taxes on the American people, even those job creators of the top two percent and with this extra money still spent more than our countrys income. The first President Bush promised that there would be no new taxes while he was president but when he broke that pledge the American people were so disappointed that he was not re-elected. We were left without a road map to a balanced budget and the American people were disappointed with their elected Republican presidents. The American people were ready for a change and along came a charming young governor who won the support of the democratic primary and things changed after the election of William Jefferson Clinton as president of the United States. This new Democratic president worked with Congress on both sides of the aisle using Republican and Democratic ideas to help our country and the working class Americans.

R ecent news reports show that the building industry is starting to show more signs of recovery. Our thoughts turn to the workers who play the most prominent part in this. We start with ancient history and continue with some shocking stories. The beginning A builder, an electrician, and a lawyer were arguing about which profession was the oldest. The builder pointed out proudly that the first thing God had done was to build the earth. True, said the electrician, but before that, He said Let there be light. Youre both right, said the lawyer, but before the light there was chaos and who do you think created the chaos? Properly orientedClair had her house remodeled according to the rules of Feng Shui, in an attempt to improve her personal luck, health, and happiness. She kept a couple of lamps, particularly ugly, and not particularly in phase with the rest of the room. They had been handmade by her grandfather, and she couldnt bear to part with them. Having seen no noticeable improvement in her life after the remodeling, she consulted a professional. He quickly delivered his diagnosis; Youve got everything here but the kitsch in synch. ShockingI asked the electrician to change the circuit breaker, but he refused. He became an electrician because, as a child, his mother always took him to the outlet stores. In order to become an electrician, you have to go through a battery of tests. When an apprentice electrician made mistakes, his mother grounded him. The electricians favorite subject while in school was current events. An electrician friend drives a volts-wagon. In the dark A boy met his friend walking down the street with a whole sack of burned out light bulbs. He asked him what he was going to do with all those useless bulbs. His friend replied, Im going to build a dark room. Couldnt cut it While in prison Andy trained to become a carpenter. He did so well that he was recognized as one of the best in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the community. The warden was remodeling his kitchen and had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top. So he called Andy into his office and asked him to complete the job for him. But Andy refused. He told the warden, Gosh, Id really like to help you but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place. BuildersA good carpenter will always do his level best. The helper didnt laugh at the roofers joke because it was over his head. When the optometrists office was remodeled, it improved his eye site. Roofers are shingle minded. A retired couple that purchased a new home from a building contractor discovered that neither the house nor the builder was on the level. Shes a lady carpenter. You ought to see her build. Dad taught me all I know about remodeling by making an example of our house. Our house was like one of the great European cathedrals never finished. Beavers are the best dam builders in the world. When the first indoor tennis court was finished, the builder made a good net profit. After his classroom had been remodeled, the college professor was heard mooning about, missing the good old dais. By the book I once wrote a book on how to remodel your basement. Sounds pretty boring. Ill have you know it made the best cellars list. Hows that again?An electrician went to a hardware shop and asked the salesman, Do you have a four volt, two watt lamp? For what? No, two. Two what? Yes.

Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Take Stock in Children, a statewide non-profit organization with a solid history of providing scholarships, mentors and hope, is proud to announce the launch of Keeping the Promise, an initiative to raise enough funding to purchase college scholarships for an additional 1,800 deserving low-income students. This will increase the number of scholars currently served by 25% to 9,000 active students across Florida. As a role model organization that has supported more than 18,000 students to date, over 80% whom are the first in their family to attend college, Take Stock in Children recently received national recognition for its exemplary successes. As a result of its winning formula of providing low-income students scholarships, mentors and hope, the organization was awarded the prestigious Investing in Innovation grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and also shined in a study by the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. On the heels of this success, the State of Florida demonstrated their belief in Take Stock in Children by allocating an additional $1 million in funding with the understanding that the organization will register an additional 1,800 students. The State of Florida recognizes Take Stock in Children is a strong partner in the solution for improving education, says Emilio Alonso-Mendoza, President/CEO of Take Stock in Children. We must now keep the promise of providing a college education to these students by purchasing 1,800 scholarships and recruiting caring mentors for each of them. Prior to enrolling any student Take Stock in Children must first secure the funding to purchase a college scholarship for them, as this is the promise made to all its scholars. In return, each student promises to meet with their mentor once a week, maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and remain drug and crime free. Upon fulfillment of this agreement students are awarded a college scholarship at high school graduation. To achieve this goal, individuals and businesses are needed to rally behind Take Stock Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative. Volunteering, mentoring or providing resources to purchase scholarships will help ensure Floridas future workforce is strong and improve our communities. With Take Stock in Childrens unique public and private model of funding, any contribution made is matched dollar for dollar by the state. Take Stock in Children plays a critical role in changing the face of education and has a long history of proven results, says Don Pemberton, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children. We believe that knowledge is power and education is the best investment to transform lives. The program offers a unique opportunity for students with comprehensive services starting in middle school, continuing through high school and including assistance during the transition to college. With an unparalleled high school graduation rate of 92%, and 89% enrolling in college, Take Stock in Children contributes to the economic viability of our communities and delivers an unmatched return on investment. High school graduates contribute 46% more in taxes, have longer lives with less public health dependency and are 3 times more likely to be employed and not dependent on government assistance. The total benefit to the State of Florida is estimated to be $300,000 per student over a lifetime. To learn more about Take Stock in Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative, or to become a valued mentor or supporter, please call 888-322-4673 or visit www.takestockinchildren.org.

The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office.

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

Elizabeth Soon (352) 245-4500 This weeks puzzle answers conjunction with Hospice of Marion County, McEnery was pinned with a veterans pin while people gathered at his bedside in Legacy House just off State Road 200. The pin was placed by his wife, Gert. The couple were married 65 years last week on Aug. 30. McEnery will turn 93 on Sept. 30. McEnery was part of a rifle company called K/3/5, which was featured on a television show on HBO. He took part in the invasion of Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester and Peleliu and saw hand-to-hand combat against the Japanese, especially in the four months at Guadalcanal. The other battles were perhaps more bloody, and as time went on it was discovered the Peleliu battle was not strategically necessary, something which irks McEnery. McEnery was scheduled to have a book signing recently, but fell ill and couldnt attend. The book, published by Simon and Schuster, is available at Barnes and Noble in Ocala. Suzanne S. Schmolesky, 74Suzanne S. Schmolesky, 74, of Ocala, went to Heaven from her home under the loving care of her husband on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012. She was born in Huntington, W.Va., in 1939.

Thirty seven players participated, and enjoyed a sunny, warm day. The scores were close, and reflected the playing conditions which have become tougher due to the growing rough, no doubt caused by the rainy weather we have experienced the past few weeks. The winners with a 198 were Sam Sample, Bill Start, Ray Hagerman, and Art Pruneau. Second with a 199 were Virgil Hein, Tom Ducz, Tom Morris, and Duck Slayton. Third with a 201 were Al Prachel, Dick Berbig, and Mike Madill. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Emmett Dowling, Bill Start, Bob Gildea, and Paul Valois.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Recent arrests by the Southwest District Office of the Marion County Sheriffs Office: Glen W. Morgan, listed as homeless, age 52, was accused of trespass after warning after he was found sitting on a bench at Jasmine Plaza. In March, he had been issued a warning. Gloria Burleson Harrell, 63, of Southwest 89th Circle, was given a notice to appear after deputies were called to Bealls. She was allegedly observed taking items of clothing and a purse, and then left the store without any attempt to pay for the goods while her adult daughter, who was with her, stopped and checked out. Total value of items taken was $276. RECENT ARRESTS The Seniors vs. Crime program, a special project of the Florida Attorney Generals Office, located at the Paddock Mall in the Ocala Police Community Resource Center is expanding their office hours to better serve the community. Since our opening in 2007 we have been open on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Beginning, Thursday, September 20th we will be open two days each week, on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p. m. According to Regional Director, Barbara Thomas this will allow us to serve additional clients and increase access to the awesome service provided by Seniors vs. Crime. Seniors vs. Crime can help people of any age. If someone has not delivered products or services you have paid for, or if you have been victimized or otherwise taken advantage of financially by a business or service provider, contact Seniors vs. Crime at (352) 873-6377. Our trained senior volunteers have helped many people over the years and have recovered approximately $150,000 for the citizens of Ocala. Just recently an 85 year old woman came to us with a problem, pertaining to a life insurance policy. Her policy stated paid in full at age 85 but she continued to be billed and told she had to pay until she turned 86. After meeting with Seniors vs. Crime, our staff was able to get her reimbursed for all payments made after her 85th birth date. Additionally we assisted her to revise the beneficiaries to 3 other policies resulting in a total recovery of $6,817. No problem is too big or too small for us to help according to Office Manager, Renee Moore. If we cant help you we will find the right resource for you, so never hesitate to call Seniors vs. Crime at 352873-6377.

He was recently pinned by fellow veterans. He served in the Pacific with the Navy in World War II. The 86-year-old Pine Run resident wanted to surprise his wife with a picture in the South Marion Citizen. Getting pinned at Legacy House PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJim McEnery and his wife, Gert, look over his book in his room at Legacy House after the veterans pinning ceremony. BY JIM CLARK Editor Jim McEnery writes about his World War II exploits with the U.S. Marines, but the Kingsland Country Estates resident, now in Hospice, almost saw the war from a different branch of the service. McEnery, who authored the book Hell in the Pacific: A Marine Riflemans Journey from Guadalcanal to Peleliu with historian Bill Sloan, was in New York City in 1940, and he and a friend decided to go to the Army recruiting center to sign up. But to their surprise, it was closed. So the pair made their way to the U.S. Marines center. The first Marine I saw said Semper Fidelis, McEnery said, and added with a laugh, I thought he said seventy-five dollars.

The next car show is scheduled for Sept. 7. This Chevy was born in 1938 but runs well. There are a few small places that need painting but they are hard to find. This Ford had an unusual antique tag from New Hampshire. It read PUT PUT. It putted along nicely to get to the show. 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 multiscreen 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.

He was recently pinned by fellow veterans. He served in the Pacific with the Navy in World War II. The 86-year-old Pine Run resident wanted to surprise his wife with a picture in the South Marion Citizen. Getting pinned at Legacy House PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJim McEnery and his wife, Gert, look over his book in his room at Legacy House after the veterans pinning ceremony. BY JIM CLARK EditorJim McEnery writes about his World War II exploits with the U.S. Marines, but the Kingsland Country Estates resident, now in Hospice, almost saw the war from a different branch of the service. McEnery, who authored the book Hell in the Pacific: A Marine Riflemans Journey from Guadalcanal to Peleliu with historian Bill Sloan, was in New York City in 1940, and he and a friend decided to go to the Army recruiting center to sign up. But to their surprise, it was closed. So the pair made their way to the U.S. Marines center. The first Marine I saw said Semper Fidelis, McEnery said, and added with a laugh, I thought he said seventy-five dollars.

The next car show is scheduled for Sept. 7. This Chevy was born in 1938 but runs well. There are a few small places that need painting but they are hard to find. This Ford had an unusual antique tag from New Hampshire. It read PUT PUT. It putted along nicely to get to the show. In honor and memory of the victims and heroes of September 11, Highland Memorial Parka 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 multiscreen 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.

The pin was placed by his wife, Gert. The couple were married 65 years last week on Aug. 30. McEnery will turn 93 on Sept. 30. McEnery was part of a rifle company called K/3/5, which was featured on a television show on HBO. He took part in the invasion of Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester and Peleliu and saw hand-to-hand combat against the Japanese, especially in the four months at Guadalcanal. The other battles were perhaps more bloody, and as time went on it was discovered the Peleliu battle was not strategically necessary, something which irks McEnery. McEnery was scheduled to have a book signing recently, but fell ill and couldnt attend. The book, published by Simon and Schuster, is available at Barnes and Noble in Ocala. Suzanne S.

According to Regional Director, Barbara Thomas this will allow us to serve additional clients and increase access to the awesome service provided by Seniors vs. Crime. Seniors vs. Crime can help people of any age. If someone has not delivered products or services you have paid for, or if you have been victimized or otherwise taken advantage of financially by a business or service provider, contact Seniors vs. Crime at (352) 873-6377. Our trained senior volunteers have helped many people over the years and have recovered approximately $150,000 for the citizens of Ocala. Just recently an 85 year old woman came to us with a problem, pertaining to a life insurance policy. Her policy stated paid in full at age 85 but she continued to be billed and told she had to pay until she turned 86. After meeting with Seniors vs. Crime, our staff was able to get her reimbursed for all payments made after her 85th birth date. Additionally we assisted her to revise the beneficiaries to 3 other policies resulting in a total recovery of $6,817. No problem is too big or too small for us to help according to Office Manager, Renee Moore. If we cant help you we will find the right resource for you, so never hesitate to call Seniors vs. Crime at 352873-6377.

In little more than six months according to the most reliable scientific predictions, at least half the planets population will die in a series of interlocking cataclysms. And then will come the ash cloud, the darkness, the twenty-degree dip in global temperatures. No crops, no cattle, no light. The slow cold fate of those who remain. As the date of the worlds end is verified as Oct. 3, people start walking off their jobs; bucket listers travel to exotic places, remarry, experiment with sex and drugs, find religion, or like many in this hanger town commit suicide. But Palace, to paraphrase Kiplings poem If, keeps his head about him when all about him are losing theirs. In Concord, New Hampshire, the young detective weighs his options: Right at this moment I have to decide, is the thing. Am I going to leave town and go north to Maine and find a house on Casco Bay and sit there and stare out the window with my sidearm and wait, or am I going to stay here and do my work and finish my case. He opts for the latter choice. As he pieces together his clues he exasperates the medical examiner, his fellow officers, and his sister Nico who begs him to find her doofus husband instead of wasting time on a The worlds going to end?

Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Take Stock in Children, a statewide non-profit organization with a solid history of providing scholarships, mentors and hope, is proud to announce the launch of Keeping the Promise, an initiative to raise enough funding to purchase college scholarships for an additional 1,800 deserving low-income students. This will increase the number of scholars currently served by 25% to 9,000 active students across Florida. As a role model organization that has supported more than 18,000 students to date, over 80% whom are the first in their family to attend college, Take Stock in Children recently received national recognition for its exemplary successes. As a result of its winning formula of providing low-income students scholarships, mentors and hope, the organization was awarded the prestigious Investing in Innovation grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and also shined in a study by the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. On the heels of this success, the State of Florida demonstrated their belief in Take Stock in Children by allocating an additional $1 million in funding with the understanding that the organization will register an additional 1,800 students. The State of Florida recognizes Take Stock in Children is a strong partner in the solution for improving education, says Emilio Alonso-Mendoza, President/CEO of Take Stock in Children. We must now keep the promise of providing a college education to these students by purchasing 1,800 scholarships and recruiting caring mentors for each of them. Prior to enrolling any student Take Stock in Children must first secure the funding to purchase a college scholarship for them, as this is the promise made to all its scholars. In return, each student promises to meet with their mentor once a week, maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and remain drug and crime free. Upon fulfillment of this agreement students are awarded a college scholarship at high school graduation. To achieve this goal, individuals and businesses are needed to rally behind Take Stock Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative. Volunteering, mentoring or providing resources to purchase scholarships will help ensure Floridas future workforce is strong and improve our communities. With Take Stock in Childrens unique public and private model of funding, any contribution made is matched dollar for dollar by the state. Take Stock in Children plays a critical role in changing the face of education and has a long history of proven results, says Don Pemberton, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children. We believe that knowledge is power and education is the best investment to transform lives. The program offers a unique opportunity for students with comprehensive services starting in middle school, continuing through high school and including assistance during the transition to college. With an unparalleled high school graduation rate of 92%, and 89% enrolling in college, Take Stock in Children contributes to the economic viability of our communities and delivers an unmatched return on investment. High school graduates contribute 46% more in taxes, have longer lives with less public health dependency and are 3 times more likely to be employed and not dependent on government assistance. The total benefit to the State of Florida is estimated to be $300,000 per student over a lifetime. To learn more about Take Stock in Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative, or to become a valued mentor or supporter, please call 888-322-4673 or visit www.takestockinchildren.org.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com How many national issues does it take to make an interesting presidential election? Would you believe there are at least 60 co-called major issues floating around, which sincere and serious people believe should have been addressed by the platforms of the political parties. Less than half the issues are nationally important. The rest are dreams and dramas. The media and other political promoters love the overflow. Issues generate millions of dollars with which to stir the political pot every four years. The Fox organization has 12 issues on its list of major concerns. CNN has 15. Its happy-money time at the networks. Reading so many essays on issues has given us eyeball migraines. If we listed all the issues here, our column would require several pages of space. Weve become a full-fledged nanny nation. Americans have been led to believe that problems of all kinds and sizes deserve Washingtons attention, federal solutions, and taxpayer generosity. Local and state governments, and self-reliance, are old-fashioned, ancient history. Besides, Washington is where they money is and where it can be borrowed as needed so far. There are citizens and organizations which believe the federal government should be doing more about animal rights, death penalties, internet censorship, neighborhood crime, student loan bailouts, church-state relations, a national language, medical marijuana, child support, marriage, patient rights, school prayer, internet privacy, literacy, economic inequality, stem cells, and gender disparity to name just a few. There are other folks, we among them, who believe in addition to re-election fund raising and back slapping, Washington politicians spend too much time addressing soft issues, which make friendly voters and fewer enemies. They lack the right stuff to deal with the major problems, such as undisciplined federal spending, ballooning national debt, and hundreds of well paid but ineffective bureaucracies. We have thumbnail suggestions about a few of the issues that caused our eyeball migraines: Illegal immigrants Do nothing. If jobs dont improve, theyll hoof it home on their own. Building fences just makes it more difficult for them to climb over and leave. Climate change If its too hot or cold where you live, move! Thats why we bought Alaska, and stole Hawaii. Political corruption Power tends to corrupt. Term limits tend to correct the problem temporarily. Career politicians should be terminated regularly. The founding fathers would be appalled to know that except for plowing snow and issuing hunting and fishing licenses, state and local governments may soon be superfluous. In addition to the economy, national defense, health care, education, foreign policy, national security, and regulation of just about everything, Washington will soon be our only problem solver. In case of emergency, Americans will have to learn to dial area code 202-911 and be patient. All our people are busy at the moment. Please stay on the line. Your problem will be addressed as soon as possible by our next available intern. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 7, 2012 Trying to make sense out of the numbers in the recently completed primary election can be mind-boggling. Some of them have no rhyme or reason. There were some comments elsewhere that the senior population had lost its influence in the voting. Im not sure I agree with that, so I took a look at some of the closer races. The voters in the senior citizen precincts were dominant in the election of David Moore over Mike Amsden. On the State Road 200 Corridor, the area served by the South Marion Citizen, Moore won by 682 votes. In the northwest area served by the West Marion Messenger, Moore won by 108 votes. That means that in the area served by our two newspapers, mostly senior communities, Moore won by 790 votes. Over the entire county, he only won by 778 votes. In other words, we elected David Moore, while the rest of the county went with Amsden. We should make sure he knows that as he moves ahead as a county commissioner. The South Marion Citizen area went strongly for two candidates who didnt win. One was Jackie Porter in the school superintendent race. Porter actually dominated the western and eastern parts of the county, while George Tomyn won the more populous areas in the center, running from Summerfield up north through Ocala. The other candidate who didnt win but was strongly supported along State Road 200 was Pat Gabriel, and that was no surprise. She lives out here and is president of the Coalition and is popular with many people who know her. She actually outpolled winner Earl Arnett by 484 votes here, and didnt do that badly in Messenger territory, losing by 236 votes. But the rest of the county went strongly for Arnett, and Gabriel finished third, behind Francine Johannesen, in the total vote. In the sheriffs race, our area went along with the trend in the entire county, supporting Dan Kuhn by a narrow margin. In the school referenda, in the operating vote, some core precincts in the Ocala area and a couple of other scattered precincts went for passage, while the rest of the county said no. In the capital expense vote, only a small few precincts supported it, while the vast majority of Marion County voted in down. In both cases, the western area went against the school items. Of course, we also have to remember the timing of this primary. Its held in August, when many of our snowbirds are still up north. It still seems that the communities west of the Interstate have a lot of clout in Marion County politics. Any politician who doesnt think so is welcome to ignore the thousands of voters out here and then see what happens.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

The biggest thing is that we should never forget how we all felt that day, Sept. 11, 2001, when the news started to spread. America is under attack. We sat and watched a couple of documentaries this past weekend, and they brought back all those feelings of anger, sorrow and, in some cases, despair, because we were sitting there in 2001 and couldnt do anything about it. We watched as people fell or jumped from the upper floors in an attempt to escape the smoke and fire. About 200 people died that way. It was a sickening thing to watch, and eventually you just wanted to close your eyes and move on. There were stories and interviews from people who were inside and were able to get out, telling us what went on and what desperation there was among the people in the offices. We saw a re-creation of the people reaching the lobby, only to be told by security guards to go back upstairs. We heard a re-telling of announcements broadcast throughout the buildings telling people the towers were safe and to remain in their offices. One man described how he split off from his group to work his way down. The others went up, and were never seen again. We saw, again, the swirling cloud of dust and ash advancing unchecked down the canyon streets of lower Manhattan, with people running for shelter with sheer panic in their eyes. We also saw the brave firefighters and police officers who stayed on the scene and went inside to try to put out the fire and get people out safely. Those were real videos of news footage from that day, and it was emotional watching, knowing what we know now, that many of them never got out. As we approach the 11-year mark (we hesitate to use the word anniversary), we see that some things have changed. Our troops got Osama bin Laden, but terrorist attacks and attempted attacks have still remained. The focus has shifted from organized group assaults to lone wolf attacks that, nevertheless, inflict pain and suffering on the targets. We still have to be vigilant. Theres a public service commercial running on television in New York that shows a person leaving a briefcase behind on public transportation. The words spoken are, If you see something, say something. Thats good advice for all of us. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, this nation was united as it hadnt been for years. Now we seem to have fallen back into the divisiveness, and we hope it doesnt weaken our defenses. Next Tuesday, find a ceremony to attend, fly your flag, and remember all those who died 11 years ago. And most of all, pray that something like this never happens again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remembering that fateful day The Corridor and the recent election Jim Flynn Columnist A government for all issues, great and small Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Work togetherWhile listening to the political news shows on Sunday morning I heard that the main Republican theme was that they believed in balanced budgets for our country. For years they kept telling us that you can spend more than your income and still balance our budgets if the additional money was spent on wars that were not part of our budget because they didnt count. President Reagan raised taxes on the American people, even those job creators of the top two percent and with this extra money still spent more than our countrys income. The first President Bush promised that there would be no new taxes while he was president but when he broke that pledge the American people were so disappointed that he was not re-elected. We were left without a road map to a balanced budget and the American people were disappointed with their elected Republican presidents. The American people were ready for a change and along came a charming young governor who won the support of the democratic primary and things changed after the election of William Jefferson Clinton as president of the United States. This new Democratic president worked with Congress on both sides of the aisle using Republican and Democratic ideas to help our country and the working class Americans.

Recent news reports show that the building industry is starting to show more signs of recovery. Our thoughts turn to the workers who play the most prominent part in this. We start with ancient history and continue with some shocking stories.The beginningA builder, an electrician, and a lawyer were arguing about which profession was the oldest. The builder pointed out proudly that the first thing God had done was to build the earth. True, said the electrician, but before that, He said Let there be light. Youre both right, said the lawyer, but before the light there was chaos and who do you think created the chaos?Properly orientedClair had her house remodeled according to the rules of Feng Shui, in an attempt to improve her personal luck, health, and happiness. She kept a couple of lamps, particularly ugly, and not particularly in phase with the rest of the room. They had been handmade by her grandfather, and she couldnt bear to part with them. Having seen no noticeable improvement in her life after the remodeling, she consulted a professional. He quickly delivered his diagnosis; Youve got everything here but the kitsch in synch. ShockingI asked the electrician to change the circuit breaker, but he refused. He became an electrician because, as a child, his mother always took him to the outlet stores. In order to become an electrician, you have to go through a battery of tests. When an apprentice electrician made mistakes, his mother grounded him. The electricians favorite subject while in school was current events. An electrician friend drives a volts-wagon.In the darkA boy met his friend walking down the street with a whole sack of burned out light bulbs. He asked him what he was going to do with all those useless bulbs. His friend replied, Im going to build a dark room.Couldnt cut itWhile in prison Andy trained to become a carpenter. He did so well that he was recognized as one of the best in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the community. The warden was remodeling his kitchen and had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top. So he called Andy into his office and asked him to complete the job for him. But Andy refused. He told the warden, Gosh, Id really like to help you but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place.BuildersA good carpenter will always do his level best. The helper didnt laugh at the roofers joke because it was over his head. When the optometrists office was remodeled, it improved his eye site. Roofers are shingle minded. A retired couple that purchased a new home from a building contractor discovered that neither the house nor the builder was on the level. Shes a lady carpenter. You ought to see her build. Dad taught me all I know about remodeling by making an example of our house. Our house was like one of the great European cathedrals never finished. Beavers are the best dam builders in the world. When the first indoor tennis court was finished, the builder made a good net profit. After his classroom had been remodeled, the college professor was heard mooning about, missing the good old dais.By the bookI once wrote a book on how to remodel your basement. Sounds pretty boring. Ill have you know it made the best cellars list.Hows that again?An electrician went to a hardware shop and asked the salesman, Do you have a four volt, two watt lamp? For what? No, two. Two what? Yes. No. Thoughts about workers and U.S. recovery PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE26 000CCQY Representing Ocala area residents for over 40 years The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements Before you decide, ask us to send free written information about our qualifications and experience. 7743 S.W.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com President Clinton for a second term. This is when the president showed his true financial genius by working with Congress to produce a balanced budget his last three years in office as president. These balanced budgets not only allowed the country to meet its obligations but also started to cut into and paying off part of the federal deficit by several billion dollars each year. I believe that if members of the House of Representatives would only work with President Obama, we could help our country by putting Americans back to work with his jobs programs to rebuild roads and bridges and provide employment to taxpaying Americans. The payment of their income taxes would help America provide a balanced budget and bring our country back to prosperity. Jerry Segovis OcalaBench of KnowledgeThere is a bench located in Anytown, USA, called the Bench of Knowledge, named so because Americans gather there to discuss pressing affairs and recommend ways to fix them. This Bench is replicated in town squares, city parks, houses of worship, wherever Americans congregate. These Americans number in the millions and are truly concerned about the issues confronting America. They are the heartbeat of this great nation. Some of their concerns are heard by our officials in one of the greatest Benches of Knowledge ... Congress. Alas, those concerns are not usually acted on. Instead, they are evaluated as to how they might impact the governments agenda ... or other officials ... or special interest groups. If found to have adverse effects they are either completely ignored or are so watered-down that they lose their effectiveness. During the past four years, the people have recommended several ways to significantly better our lives. Not a single one was enacted by Congress. Major issues like unemployment, the economy, immigration-reform, tax-reform, medical cost-control, have been simply ignored or grossly mishandled. Ideally, Congress is attuned to and sympathetic too the needs of Americans. So too the president. Unfortunately, they arent. This administration, instead of working to fix the problems that plague America, is more interested in attracting votes that would help them secure reelection. Their goal is to build a government a socialistlike government that even further excludes we citizens. Its unquestionably time for change ... a real change. Joe OHara Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenWhen Democrats accuse Republicans of wanting to end Medicare as we know it, they are right. But Democrats do too. Medicare as we know it is no longer an option. Leaving aside Medicares fatal moral defect that its coercively funded the program is doomed. It has tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities. It threatens working generations with a crushing tax burden. Because of the relative size of the Baby Boom generation, soon there will be only two workers to pay each retirees medical bills. Younger people might have other plans for their money. So somethings got to give, no matter which party is in power. If the government promises to pay for older peoples medical care essentially without limit, one would expect the bill to grow fast. Its the law of demand: as price falls, demand rises. Given that law, and assuming that taxes cant be jacked up, theres only one thing to do, short of abolishing the program: limit what the beneficiaries can buy. But older people, who vote in great numbers, wont like that. So politicians need to deceive. President Obamas health care plan would cut over $700 billion from Medicare. (He needs the money for Obamacare.) But he insists this will not reduce benefits. How can that be? The money will be taken from providers (and insurers under the popular alternative, Medicare Advantage), not beneficiaries, he says. But if reimbursements to providers are reduced, how could that not reduce benefits? Obama replies, eliminate waste. It sounds nice, but it means that government will second-guess the decisions of doctors and patients. Obamacare sets up an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), consisting of 15 presidential appointees (confirmed by the Senate), whose job is to limit spending. Now we run into the law of supply: as the price of a service falls, supply tends to fall also. We can anticipate that fewer doctors will accept Medicare patients and some on-the-edge hospitals will close. Patients will wait longer for services. Despite assurances that only unnecessary services will be eliminated, it is hard to have confidence that something as individualized as medical care can be managed by 15 distant experts. Medical care by number will become the standard in America. So the choice appears to be between Medicare bankruptcy and increasing government control over retirees health-care spending. The Republicans disagree. What do they propose? Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would change Medicare from a guaranteed-benefit plan to a guaranteed-contribution plan. Instead of paying whatever bills retirees incur, the government would provide premium support to enable them to buy private coverage. Retirees would also have the option of staying in traditional Medicare, but since the Republicans predict that their plan will bring costs down through competition, they forecast that Medicare costs will be controlled without limiting peoples choices. Suspicion is warranted. Theres very little difference between the two [Obama and Ryan) plans, write John Goodman and Thomas Saving of the National Center for Policy Analysis.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com portant difference in Medicare spending. Ryans misidentified voucher plan is not likely to deliver on cost control. The proposal would set up an insurance exchange in which companies offer government-designed policies. We know that providers will lobby the federal government to have their services included under the allowable plans. Moreover, Shikha Dalmia of the Reason Foundation writes, Insurance companies selling coverage to seniors will have a bigger incentive to lobby harder, since the money will go to them. AARP will have a strong incentive to lobby too. As a result, there will be more pressure to raise government spending and we know where that leads. Theres no such thing as a free lunch. Money always has strings, and he who pays the piper eventually calls the tune. Opponents of Medicare warned of all this but were ignored. The welfare state is a snare and a delusion. It creates dependence at the point of a gun, and then, once dependency is achieved, it imposes restrictions that create hardship. All the while, the taxpaying generations bear an ever-greater burden. Its time for the separation of medicine and state. Mutual-aid associations and other private for-profit and nonprofit organizations can provide for our medical needs without bureaucratic intrusion and coercion.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. MEDICARECONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 All we hear these days are complaining about the economy and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Politicians talk about it all the time and yet do nothing creative in the area of improving our economy. If you could put all the political speeches end to end, there would positively be no end to it. What we need to stimulate our economy is some kind of stimulation that does not come from the government. They stimulate me, all right, but not in the right way. This is where I step in. I assure you I am not running for any office. If the truth were known, I am running away from every office I can think of, especially my church office. I have no political agenda or aspirations; I am just a plain ordinary American citizen. I understand such creatures are an endangered species in todays economy. I am proud to be just a plain ordinary American. I am not middle-class, lower-class and certainly not high class. In fact, I have no class at all, and I am glad to leave it like that. I couldnt pass the test anyway. But I am doing my part in stimulating the economy. The secret plan I have can be boiled down to one word: vacation. This past week I have bravely gone where I have not been for a long time and that is on vacation. There is nothing like a vacation to stimulate many things, including the economy. It takes me a whole year to scrimp and save so the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I can go on a vacation. But in the end, it is well worth it. After a weeklong vacation, I am highly stimulated to return home where I can recuperate from all that stimulation. My wallet is still vibrating. I must confess that the primary stimulation in a vacation has to do with my credit card. It was stimulated in more ways than I care to remember, and at the end of the month the credit card company will remind me of all that stimulation. If the government does not have enough money in its coffers to balance the budget, it is not because I have not done my part. Every time I turned around there was a tax on something. Do not let this get out, but if the government knows I turned around so many times, they will find a way to tax that. I am not a conspiracy enthusiast, but I believe I stumbled onto a most blatant conspiracy with the United States government. I am here merely to give my humble testimony. The conspiracy, as I found it, focuses in on the airlines. I know this may sound like a far-fetched idea but I can only give my observation. The airlines are in a conspiracy with the United States government to take as much money from me as they possibly can. Not that I have a lot of money, I just would like to keep as much of it as possible for those occasions when I would like to take my wife out to a restaurant and just have a relaxing evening. That takes money. It began with checking in our luggage. Two bags for me and two bags for my wife equals too much luggage. We put our luggage on the conveyor belt and then were informed by the check-in clerk that each bag cost an extra $50. She swiped my credit card and even though I am not a mathematical wizard, I believe it was in the neighborhood of $200. I do not like that neighborhood. Later on, I sat down to figure it out and discovered it would be far cheaper not to take any luggage and then when arriving at my destination buy a new set of clothes. My entire wardrobe does not equal $100. Of course, on my wifes side of the closet it is a different story. We got our boarding pass and then the young woman behind the counter looked at me and asked a strange question. Sir, how tall are you? It has been a long time since anybody asked me that kind of a question. Why she wanted to know how tall I was could not be found in the corridors of my empty mind. I then informed her that I was 6. I see, she said as she stared at her computer screen. Then she explained. The average height of a male passenger on our plane is 5. You exceed that limit by 4 inches. I looked at my wife and we both shared a wonderful laugh. Then I look back at her behind the counter, but she was not laughing. There will be an extra charge for your exceeding our height limit. My humble effort at stimulating the economy OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder Lets see, she said as she studied the computer screen, thats 4 inches times $15 per inch which equals $60. She then swiped my credit card, again, and charged it with the $60 extra fee. That was just the beginning of the swiping by the airlines. By the time our vacation was over, I was totally swiped out. When I got home I meditated a little bit on what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). I really do not mind rendering to Caesar but I just wish he wasnt so greedy.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 12~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com My sister and I have come up with a game we both enjoy, namely we e-mail trivia questions back and forth to each other based on events in our childhoods. We are really enjoying ourselves stretching our memory powers back 50 years, which to us seems like yesterday. Our inquiries into the past have included the color of my first prom dress, our favorite restaurants (most no longer in business) and experiences and events that shaped our lives. We are comfortable in these remembrances because they bring back a time when life was simpler and there were none of the encumbrances we have to deal with today. I believe my sister and I have found common ground when we were both innocent of the trials and tribulations we were to both face as grown-ups. It was a safe time for us before we became parents and adults. In Judaism, especially at this particular holy time of the year, remembering plays a major role in the High Holy Day liturgy. As Jews, we are exhorted to remember our past deeds, a kind of soul taking stock situation where we look back on all our deeds, good and bad, and try to repent and make amends. We remember those who have passed away during the year at a special service called Yiskor and we remember our covenant that God made with our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, promising to be our God to redeem us and to bring us to the Promised Land. Jews have very long memories, not so surprisingly, in view of their long history. From the very dawn of Jewish history, memory has been a potent force for peoplehood. At every major festival, in the prayer for wine sanctifying the holiday, The Exodus from Egypt is recalled. This seminal event in the history of the Jews was the catalyst the propelled them from slavery to freedom, from a ragtag group to a nation with a purpose and destiny. It was the preparation for the Revelation At Sinai and the Giving of the Torah that was to shape the former slaves into a nation with moral laws and a guide to living. With the laws governing all phases of life revealed, the eventual result of this all was the entrance into the Promised Land where the Israelites where able to live, settle and govern themselves. Throughout the ages, the words of the Jewish prophets echoed down to the people to follow Gods laws (mitzvot) or bring calamity upon themselves. We have only to look at the signs of global warming and the extinction of certain species to see the wisdom in these teachings. By ignoring those in need, by not providing for the less fortunate, we show our lack of concern and disregard for all who are made in the image of God. At this season we remember the sacrifices Jews made through the ages, sometimes with their very lives to remain faithful to Judaism. It is believed that the special Kol Nidre prayer said on the eve of the Day of Atonement was composed during the Inquisition when Jews were often coerced into baptism or face death. The prayer speaks of vain vows to God not being able to be fulfilled, a reference to forced conversions to Catholicism in order to save their families. Their martyrdom, in some cases, and the recent memories of the Holocaust are remembered during this holiday season. In the Hebrew Bible, there are many references to memory. The ancient Israelites were exhorted to remember the Amalekites, a warrior tribe that preyed on the stragglers of the Israelite band as they moved through the wilderness to the Promised Land. The Ten Commandments tells us to remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy and God remembers Noah and his family and the animals in the Ark and saves them from destruction. Each time a Jew dons a prayer shawl, tallit, he or she is remembering the commandments, mitzvot, that God has enjoined on the Jewish people, such a loving ones neighbor as oneself, caring for the poor, visiting the sick, observing the festivals and the Sabbath, creating peace and making the world a better place. As she/ he gazes at the ritual fringes, called tzizit; they serve to remind the worshipper of all that is expected to one who is a member of the Jewish people. As we approach the Jewish New Year of 5773, may we all remember to treat the world gently. May we remember to help those who suffer in silence: the disenfranchised, the homeless, the cast-offs of society. May we remember what draws us together as inhabitants of this planet, rather than the ideologies that draw us apart. May we remember that we were all created by the One Source, though this Source has many names and methods of worship. May we all remember, to remember. Lshannah Tovah umitoocah, a happy and sweet New Year. (The Jewish Year of 5773 starts the evening of Sept. 16.)

This event will help raise funds for the benefit of the Veterans Club and all of their activities. Many people arent aware of the fact that the Cherrywood Veterans Club reaches out to veterans at the local but also at the county, state and even national levels. A registered, not for profit organization, the Veterans are a tax exempt organization that participates in among other things: Honor Flights for World War II veterans allowing those veterans to fly to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II monument. Fisher House sponsorship: Fisher House is a free of charge place for families to stay with their veteran as they recover in a VA facility. Ritz Veterans House: Based in Ocala, this facility provides lodging and support for veterans transitioning back into society. Fort McCoy Retirement Home is a location for qualifying veterans to live out their lives in peace and security. S.O.S. stands for Support our Soldiers. This project provides Care packages to our troops overseas in harms way. These packages contain assorted food treats; candy; toiletries; grooming supplies and other touches of home that would otherwise be impossible to get. These are but a few of the programs that our veterans are actively engaged in but like all organizations, the veterans need money to continue to do these good works. In October, a fund raising Bowl-AThon will be held at Galaxy Lanes in Ocala and we are asking everyone for support. If you own a small business and would like to be part of this great event, corporate sponsorships are available for as little as $25 up to $100; if you are a bowler but not on a team, you can sign up with Geri in the office; if you have a bowling team and would like to participate or if you just want to make a donation, you are more than welcome to do so. Remember, all donations are tax deductible. More details will follow in this column but for up to the minute information, contact John at urperssec@yahoo.com The veterans sincerely thank our bowlers; SanDee, president of the Cherrywood bowling league and Fran, the secretary, for their whole hearted support. What a great place Cherrywood is to live and play. 100 Days of Summer OctoberfestStart with a great theme for a party like say, OctoberFest; put on a delicious dinner of Bratwurst with all the fixings; add a live band called Northern Sounds; and then make the whole thing free of charge and you have the makings of one fantastic end to the 100 Days of Summer events at Cherrywood.

TriviaOn Sept. 19 at 7 p.m., Rich Hurley will put up the questions on the big screen at the clubhouse and try to stump us with questions on everything from history to entertainment and maybe even the history of entertainment. This is a great evening of fun and friendly competition as teams vie for a small cash prize and bragging rights at being the brightest folk in Cherrywood. If youve never been to a Trivia Night, youre missing a lot of fun. Teams of three or four bring their own snacks and drinks; find a table and then watch the questions as they pop up on the screen.

If you dont have enough people for a team or youve never come out, feel free to walk in, pay a dollar and youll be assigned to a team. You dont need to be shy because everyone is pretty much clueless to the questions but they do have a good time.

Spotlight On Excellence Each week 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 we honor long time residents Bill and Josephine Spangenberg. Bill and Jo, as she likes to be called, were born and grew up in the New York City area. Jo, an only child went to Our Lady of Angels for grade school and graduated from Saint Joseph High School. After attending Brooklyn Business College for a year, she took work at Crumb & Forster as a private secretary. At the ripe age of 16, Bill quit school and went to work on the docks as a Freight Checker for a trucking company. One of his jobs was picking up the payroll for the truckers. In those days the employees were all paid in cash so he had to go to the home office, and then take the money in a brown paper bag on the subway back to the office. One day there was a strike of longshoreman. In the days that followed the demonstrations became violent with cars being over turned and fires set. Bill called into work and said that he wouldnt be in because he wasnt about to cross the picket lines and risk injury or worse. When the boss told him he had no choice, Bills Dad picked up the phone and said emphatically, He quit! It was then that Bill decided to join the military. He had tried in vain with all the branches but weighed five pounds less than the minimum weight standard. The Korean War had just begun and so the requirements were lowered and Bill went into the Air Force. Bill saw service in Lyon, France, Tripoli and Japan. He received training in fabric; painting and parachute rigging. While he didnt know it at the time, all of these would serve him well in the future. In those days, surprisingly, he traveled by ship to his destinations. When he shipped out to Germany on his way to France, Bill left from Brooklyn Army TerCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE15 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 minal aboard a troop ship. He earned his keep so to speak cutting meat in the galley. Apparently cutting pork chops on a band saw appealed to him because he now cuts out wooden carvings. Following his tour of duty, Bill returned home and went looking for a friend of his from before his enlistment. As luck would have it, the friend was getting married in just a few days and he asked Bill to be an usher at his wedding. Jo was a maid of honor in the bridal party of the same wedding. They met at the church and there was an immediate attraction. After dating for two years, the two of them were married and began their lives together. After living with her mom for a short time, the two saved up enough money and with the help of the GI Bill, bought a house in Islip, New York. Bill took a job at Trans World Airlines and Jo and he started their family. Jo was an only child and Bill has one sister; Carol Vaughn who lives in Roxbury, New York. To make up for it, the two have six children; five boys and a girl. Their eyes sparkle with pride as they point to pictures around their house of each one. Charles is the eldest and lives in South Carolina with his wife Patty and two children; William and his wife Laura live in Chuluota, Florida, with their four children; Paul and Helene live in Arizona with their three children. Their son John and his wife Melinda and two children live in Indiana. Mary, Bill and Jos daughter, is a school teacher in Arizona, and her brother John, wrought iron specialist also resides in Arizona. All totaled, Jo and Bill have 11 grandchildren. Needless to say, Jos full time career was raising the family while Bill went to work for TWA. He served there for an impressive 40 years working with upholstery; decorating and painting. His career was highlighted by working on and helping to customize the planes that two separate popes rode in. Among other things, he painted the Seal of the Vatican on the nose of each plane for Pope Paul VI and Pope John XXIII. For his excellent work, he and the ground crew received medals and awards from both the Vatican and from TWA. While working at TWA, Bill put in several suggestions on improving productivity and profits for the company. These suggestions were rewarded with points that could be redeemed for merchandise Jo and Bill Spangenberg and Bill chose several wood working saws. Working in wood became his passion and hobby and without formal training in this type of art, he has done not only the military statues for the Veterans Club but also did an Iwo Jima Memorial Plaque that proudly hangs in the VFW. When Bill and Jo retired, they received a video from the AARP showing Cherrywood Estates. Having endured the cold long enough, they decided to move down to Florida and theyve never looked back. They enjoy the people of this community and the many activities that go on. Jo has been active in dominoes and loves the 100 Days of Summer events as well as the many other parties. She could usually be found in the kitchen helping out. Bill is active in the Veterans Club and sells the 50/50 tickets at every event. He also uses his woodworking skills to make the various wood statues found with next to our flags at the various veterans programs. Along with the Veterans Club, Bill is a member of the VFW and American Legion. We are grateful to Bill and Jo for all they have done and all they do for our quality of life here at Cherrywood and our community.

If youve never been to a Trivia Night, youre missing a lot of fun. Teams of three or four bring their own snacks and drinks; find a table and then watch the questions as they pop up on the screen.

If you dont have enough people for a team or youve never come out, feel free to walk in, pay a dollar and youll be assigned to a team. You dont need to be shy because everyone is pretty much clueless to the questions but they do have a good time.

Spotlight On Excellence Each week 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 we honor long time residents Bill and Josephine Spangenberg. Bill and Jo, as she likes to be called, were born and grew up in the New York City area. Jo, an only child went to Our Lady of Angels for grade school and graduated from Saint Joseph High School. After attending Brooklyn Business College for a year, she took work at Crumb & Forster as a private secretary. At the ripe age of 16, Bill quit school and went to work on the docks as a Freight Checker for a trucking company. One of his jobs was picking up the payroll for the truckers. In those days the employees were all paid in cash so he had to go to the home office, and then take the money in a brown paper bag on the subway back to the office. One day there was a strike of longshoreman. In the days that followed the demonstrations became violent with cars being over turned and fires set. Bill called into work and said that he wouldnt be in because he wasnt about to cross the picket lines and risk injury or worse. When the boss told him he had no choice, Bills Dad picked up the phone and said emphatically, He quit! It was then that Bill decided to join the military. He had tried in vain with all the branches but weighed five pounds less than the minimum weight standard. The Korean War had just begun and so the requirements were lowered and Bill went into the Air Force. Bill saw service in Lyon, France, Tripoli and Japan. He received training in fabric; painting and parachute rigging. While he didnt know it at the time, all of these would serve him well in the future. In those days, surprisingly, he traveled by ship to his destinations. When he shipped out to Germany on his way to France, Bill left from Brooklyn Army TerCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE15 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 minal aboard a troop ship. He earned his keep so to speak cutting meat in the galley. Apparently cutting pork chops on a band saw appealed to him because he now cuts out wooden carvings. Following his tour of duty, Bill returned home and went looking for a friend of his from before his enlistment. As luck would have it, the friend was getting married in just a few days and he asked Bill to be an usher at his wedding. Jo was a maid of honor in the bridal party of the same wedding. They met at the church and there was an immediate attraction. After dating for two years, the two of them were married and began their lives together. After living with her mom for a short time, the two saved up enough money and with the help of the GI Bill, bought a house in Islip, New York. Bill took a job at Trans World Airlines and Jo and he started their family. Jo was an only child and Bill has one sister; Carol Vaughn who lives in Roxbury, New York. To make up for it, the two have six children; five boys and a girl. Their eyes sparkle with pride as they point to pictures around their house of each one. Charles is the eldest and lives in South Carolina with his wife Patty and two children; William and his wife Laura live in Chuluota, Florida, with their four children; Paul and Helene live in Arizona with their three children. Their son John and his wife Melinda and two children live in Indiana. Mary, Bill and Jos daughter, is a school teacher in Arizona, and her brother John, wrought iron specialist also resides in Arizona. All totaled, Jo and Bill have 11 grandchildren. Needless to say, Jos full time career was raising the family while Bill went to work for TWA. He served there for an impressive 40 years working with upholstery; decorating and painting. His career was highlighted by working on and helping to customize the planes that two separate popes rode in. Among other things, he painted the Seal of the Vatican on the nose of each plane for Pope Paul VI and Pope John XXIII. For his excellent work, he and the ground crew received medals and awards from both the Vatican and from TWA. While working at TWA, Bill put in several suggestions on improving productivity and profits for the company. These suggestions were rewarded with points that could be redeemed for merchandise Jo and Bill Spangenberg and Bill chose several wood working saws. Working in wood became his passion and hobby and without formal training in this type of art, he has done not only the military statues for the Veterans Club but also did an Iwo Jima Memorial Plaque that proudly hangs in the VFW. When Bill and Jo retired, they received a video from the AARP showing Cherrywood Estates. Having endured the cold long enough, they decided to move down to Florida and theyve never looked back. They enjoy the people of this community and the many activities that go on. Jo has been active in dominoes and loves the 100 Days of Summer events as well as the many other parties. She could usually be found in the kitchen helping out. Bill is active in the Veterans Club and sells the 50/50 tickets at every event. He also uses his woodworking skills to make the various wood statues found with next to our flags at the various veterans programs. Along with the Veterans Club, Bill is a member of the VFW and American Legion. We are grateful to Bill and Jo for all they have done and all they do for our quality of life here at Cherrywood and our community.

This event will help raise funds for the benefit of the Veterans Club and all of their activities. Many people arent aware of the fact that the Cherrywood Veterans Club reaches out to veterans at the local but also at the county, state and even national levels. A registered, not for profit organization, the Veterans are a tax exempt organization that participates in among other things: Honor Flights for World War II veterans allowing those veterans to fly to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II monument. Fisher House sponsorship: Fisher House is a free of charge place for families to stay with their veteran as they recover in a VA facility. Ritz Veterans House: Based in Ocala, this facility provides lodging and support for veterans transitioning back into society. Fort McCoy Retirement Home is a location for qualifying veterans to live out their lives in peace and security. S.O.S. stands for Support our Soldiers. This project provides Care packages to our troops overseas in harms way. These packages contain assorted food treats; candy; toiletries; grooming supplies and other touches of home that would otherwise be impossible to get. These are but a few of the programs that our veterans are actively engaged in but like all organizations, the veterans need money to continue to do these good works. In October, a fund raising Bowl-AThon will be held at Galaxy Lanes in Ocala and we are asking everyone for support. If you own a small business and would like to be part of this great event, corporate sponsorships are available for as little as $25 up to $100; if you are a bowler but not on a team, you can sign up with Geri in the office; if you have a bowling team and would like to participate or if you just want to make a donation, you are more than welcome to do so. Remember, all donations are tax deductible. More details will follow in this column but for up to the minute information, contact John at urperssec@yahoo.com The veterans sincerely thank our bowlers; SanDee, president of the Cherrywood bowling league and Fran, the secretary, for their whole hearted support. What a great place Cherrywood is to live and play. 100 Days of Summer OctoberfestStart with a great theme for a party like say, OctoberFest; put on a delicious dinner of Bratwurst with all the fixings; add a live band called Northern Sounds; and then make the whole thing free of charge and you have the makings of one fantastic end to the 100 Days of Summer events at Cherrywood. On Monday, Sept. 24, Cherrywood will join with millions of people around the world to celebrate the German party of Octoberfest with traditional food and music. Doors at the clubhouse open at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served. There will be our usual drinks of lemonade and iced tea but on this particular night, you might want to bring your own appropriate beverages. Northern Sounds will provide the traditional music German music, mixed in with some popular songs for dancing. These professionals bring a sound and atmosphere with upbeat tunes and an upbeat tone that promotes fun in any gathering, especially Octoberfest. Last month saw a record crowd of 250 people who were served in less than 45 minutes. This is the last 100 Days of Summer party for the year so lets break that record. Theres a lot of room on the patio, picnic area and of course in the clubhouse for everyone to sit with friends; chat with neighbors and enjoy great food and drink. Tickets are a must for this party so see Geri and remember, your ticket is also your entry for the door prize. Adult guests are just $12 and you can get their tickets from Geri also.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 12~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com My sister and I have come up with a game we both enjoy, namely we e-mail trivia questions back and forth to each other based on events in our childhoods. We are really enjoying ourselves stretching our memory powers back 50 years, which to us seems like yesterday. Our inquiries into the past have included the color of my first prom dress, our favorite restaurants (most no longer in business) and experiences and events that shaped our lives. We are comfortable in these remembrances because they bring back a time when life was simpler and there were none of the encumbrances we have to deal with today. I believe my sister and I have found common ground when we were both innocent of the trials and tribulations we were to both face as grown-ups. It was a safe time for us before we became parents and adults. In Judaism, especially at this particular holy time of the year, remembering plays a major role in the High Holy Day liturgy. As Jews, we are exhorted to remember our past deeds, a kind of soul taking stock situation where we look back on all our deeds, good and bad, and try to repent and make amends. We remember those who have passed away during the year at a special service called Yiskor and we remember our covenant that God made with our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, promising to be our God to redeem us and to bring us to the Promised Land. Jews have very long memories, not so surprisingly, in view of their long history. From the very dawn of Jewish history, memory has been a potent force for peoplehood. At every major festival, in the prayer for wine sanctifying the holiday, The Exodus from Egypt is recalled. This seminal event in the history of the Jews was the catalyst the propelled them from slavery to freedom, from a ragtag group to a nation with a purpose and destiny. It was the preparation for the Revelation At Sinai and the Giving of the Torah that was to shape the former slaves into a nation with moral laws and a guide to living. With the laws governing all phases of life revealed, the eventual result of this all was the entrance into the Promised Land where the Israelites where able to live, settle and govern themselves. Throughout the ages, the words of the Jewish prophets echoed down to the people to follow Gods laws (mitzvot) or bring calamity upon themselves. We have only to look at the signs of global warming and the extinction of certain species to see the wisdom in these teachings. By ignoring those in need, by not providing for the less fortunate, we show our lack of concern and disregard for all who are made in the image of God. At this season we remember the sacrifices Jews made through the ages, sometimes with their very lives to remain faithful to Judaism. It is believed that the special Kol Nidre prayer said on the eve of the Day of Atonement was composed during the Inquisition when Jews were often coerced into baptism or face death. The prayer speaks of vain vows to God not being able to be fulfilled, a reference to forced conversions to Catholicism in order to save their families. Their martyrdom, in some cases, and the recent memories of the Holocaust are remembered during this holiday season. In the Hebrew Bible, there are many references to memory. The ancient Israelites were exhorted to remember the Amalekites, a warrior tribe that preyed on the stragglers of the Israelite band as they moved through the wilderness to the Promised Land. The Ten Commandments tells us to remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy and God remembers Noah and his family and the animals in the Ark and saves them from destruction. Each time a Jew dons a prayer shawl, tallit, he or she is remembering the commandments, mitzvot, that God has enjoined on the Jewish people, such a loving ones neighbor as oneself, caring for the poor, visiting the sick, observing the festivals and the Sabbath, creating peace and making the world a better place. As she/ he gazes at the ritual fringes, called tzizit; they serve to remind the worshipper of all that is expected to one who is a member of the Jewish people. As we approach the Jewish New Year of 5773, may we all remember to treat the world gently. May we remember to help those who suffer in silence: the disenfranchised, the homeless, the cast-offs of society. May we remember what draws us together as inhabitants of this planet, rather than the ideologies that draw us apart. May we remember that we were all created by the One Source, though this Source has many names and methods of worship. May we all remember, to remember. Lshannah Tovah umitoocah, a happy and sweet New Year. (The Jewish Year of 5773 starts the evening of Sept. 16.)

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com portant difference in Medicare spending. Ryans misidentified voucher plan is not likely to deliver on cost control. The proposal would set up an insurance exchange in which companies offer government-designed policies. We know that providers will lobby the federal government to have their services included under the allowable plans. Moreover, Shikha Dalmia of the Reason Foundation writes, Insurance companies selling coverage to seniors will have a bigger incentive to lobby harder, since the money will go to them. AARP will have a strong incentive to lobby too. As a result, there will be more pressure to raise government spending and we know where that leads. Theres no such thing as a free lunch. Money always has strings, and he who pays the piper eventually calls the tune. Opponents of Medicare warned of all this but were ignored. The welfare state is a snare and a delusion. It creates dependence at the point of a gun, and then, once dependency is achieved, it imposes restrictions that create hardship. All the while, the taxpaying generations bear an ever-greater burden. Its time for the separation of medicine and state. Mutual-aid associations and other private for-profit and nonprofit organizations can provide for our medical needs without bureaucratic intrusion and coercion.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. MEDICARECONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 All we hear these days are complaining about the economy and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Politicians talk about it all the time and yet do nothing creative in the area of improving our economy. If you could put all the political speeches end to end, there would positively be no end to it. What we need to stimulate our economy is some kind of stimulation that does not come from the government. They stimulate me, all right, but not in the right way. This is where I step in. I assure you I am not running for any office. If the truth were known, I am running away from every office I can think of, especially my church office. I have no political agenda or aspirations; I am just a plain ordinary American citizen. I understand such creatures are an endangered species in todays economy. I am proud to be just a plain ordinary American. I am not middle-class, lower-class and certainly not high class. In fact, I have no class at all, and I am glad to leave it like that. I couldnt pass the test anyway. But I am doing my part in stimulating the economy. The secret plan I have can be boiled down to one word: vacation. This past week I have bravely gone where I have not been for a long time and that is on vacation. There is nothing like a vacation to stimulate many things, including the economy. It takes me a whole year to scrimp and save so the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I can go on a vacation. But in the end, it is well worth it. After a weeklong vacation, I am highly stimulated to return home where I can recuperate from all that stimulation. My wallet is still vibrating. I must confess that the primary stimulation in a vacation has to do with my credit card. It was stimulated in more ways than I care to remember, and at the end of the month the credit card company will remind me of all that stimulation. If the government does not have enough money in its coffers to balance the budget, it is not because I have not done my part. Every time I turned around there was a tax on something. Do not let this get out, but if the government knows I turned around so many times, they will find a way to tax that. I am not a conspiracy enthusiast, but I believe I stumbled onto a most blatant conspiracy with the United States government. I am here merely to give my humble testimony. The conspiracy, as I found it, focuses in on the airlines. I know this may sound like a far-fetched idea but I can only give my observation. The airlines are in a conspiracy with the United States government to take as much money from me as they possibly can. Not that I have a lot of money, I just would like to keep as much of it as possible for those occasions when I would like to take my wife out to a restaurant and just have a relaxing evening. That takes money. It began with checking in our luggage. Two bags for me and two bags for my wife equals too much luggage. We put our luggage on the conveyor belt and then were informed by the check-in clerk that each bag cost an extra $50. She swiped my credit card and even though I am not a mathematical wizard, I believe it was in the neighborhood of $200. I do not like that neighborhood. Later on, I sat down to figure it out and discovered it would be far cheaper not to take any luggage and then when arriving at my destination buy a new set of clothes. My entire wardrobe does not equal $100. Of course, on my wifes side of the closet it is a different story. We got our boarding pass and then the young woman behind the counter looked at me and asked a strange question. Sir, how tall are you? It has been a long time since anybody asked me that kind of a question. Why she wanted to know how tall I was could not be found in the corridors of my empty mind. I then informed her that I was 6. I see, she said as she stared at her computer screen. Then she explained. The average height of a male passenger on our plane is 5. You exceed that limit by 4 inches. I looked at my wife and we both shared a wonderful laugh. Then I look back at her behind the counter, but she was not laughing. There will be an extra charge for your exceeding our height limit. My humble effort at stimulating the economy OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder Lets see, she said as she studied the computer screen, thats 4 inches times $15 per inch which equals $60. She then swiped my credit card, again, and charged it with the $60 extra fee. That was just the beginning of the swiping by the airlines. By the time our vacation was over, I was totally swiped out. When I got home I meditated a little bit on what Jesus said, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). I really do not mind rendering to Caesar but I just wish he wasnt so greedy.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, Ocala.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 7, 2012 www.smcitizen.com President Clinton for a second term. This is when the president showed his true financial genius by working with Congress to produce a balanced budget his last three years in office as president. These balanced budgets not only allowed the country to meet its obligations but also started to cut into and paying off part of the federal deficit by several billion dollars each year. I believe that if members of the House of Representatives would only work with President Obama, we could help our country by putting Americans back to work with his jobs programs to rebuild roads and bridges and provide employment to taxpaying Americans. The payment of their income taxes would help America provide a balanced budget and bring our country back to prosperity. Jerry Segovis OcalaBench of KnowledgeThere is a bench located in Anytown, USA, called the Bench of Knowledge, named so because Americans gather there to discuss pressing affairs and recommend ways to fix them. This Bench is replicated in town squares, city parks, houses of worship, wherever Americans congregate. These Americans number in the millions and are truly concerned about the issues confronting America. They are the heartbeat of this great nation. Some of their concerns are heard by our officials in one of the greatest Benches of Knowledge ... Congress. Alas, those concerns are not usually acted on. Instead, they are evaluated as to how they might impact the governments agenda ... or other officials ... or special interest groups. If found to have adverse effects they are either completely ignored or are so watered-down that they lose their effectiveness. During the past four years, the people have recommended several ways to significantly better our lives. Not a single one was enacted by Congress. Major issues like unemployment, the economy, immigration-reform, tax-reform, medical cost-control, have been simply ignored or grossly mishandled. Ideally, Congress is attuned to and sympathetic too the needs of Americans. So too the president. Unfortunately, they arent. This administration, instead of working to fix the problems that plague America, is more interested in attracting votes that would help them secure reelection. Their goal is to build a government a socialistlike government that even further excludes we citizens. Its unquestionably time for change ... a real change. Joe OHara Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenWhen Democrats accuse Republicans of wanting to end Medicare as we know it, they are right. But Democrats do too. Medicare as we know it is no longer an option. Leaving aside Medicares fatal moral defect that its coercively funded the program is doomed. It has tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities. It threatens working generations with a crushing tax burden. Because of the relative size of the Baby Boom generation, soon there will be only two workers to pay each retirees medical bills. Younger people might have other plans for their money. So somethings got to give, no matter which party is in power. If the government promises to pay for older peoples medical care essentially without limit, one would expect the bill to grow fast. Its the law of demand: as price falls, demand rises. Given that law, and assuming that taxes cant be jacked up, theres only one thing to do, short of abolishing the program: limit what the beneficiaries can buy. But older people, who vote in great numbers, wont like that. So politicians need to deceive. President Obamas health care plan would cut over $700 billion from Medicare. (He needs the money for Obamacare.) But he insists this will not reduce benefits. How can that be? The money will be taken from providers (and insurers under the popular alternative, Medicare Advantage), not beneficiaries, he says. But if reimbursements to providers are reduced, how could that not reduce benefits? Obama replies, eliminate waste. It sounds nice, but it means that government will second-guess the decisions of doctors and patients. Obamacare sets up an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), consisting of 15 presidential appointees (confirmed by the Senate), whose job is to limit spending. Now we run into the law of supply: as the price of a service falls, supply tends to fall also. We can anticipate that fewer doctors will accept Medicare patients and some on-the-edge hospitals will close. Patients will wait longer for services. Despite assurances that only unnecessary services will be eliminated, it is hard to have confidence that something as individualized as medical care can be managed by 15 distant experts. Medical care by number will become the standard in America. So the choice appears to be between Medicare bankruptcy and increasing government control over retirees health-care spending. The Republicans disagree. What do they propose? Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would change Medicare from a guaranteed-benefit plan to a guaranteed-contribution plan. Instead of paying whatever bills retirees incur, the government would provide premium support to enable them to buy private coverage. Retirees would also have the option of staying in traditional Medicare, but since the Republicans predict that their plan will bring costs down through competition, they forecast that Medicare costs will be controlled without limiting peoples choices. Suspicion is warranted. Theres very little difference between the two [Obama and Ryan) plans, write John Goodman and Thomas Saving of the National Center for Policy Analysis.

Friday, September 7, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com How many national issues does it take to make an interesting presidential election? Would you believe there are at least 60 co-called major issues floating around, which sincere and serious people believe should have been addressed by the platforms of the political parties. Less than half the issues are nationally important. The rest are dreams and dramas. The media and other political promoters love the overflow. Issues generate millions of dollars with which to stir the political pot every four years. The Fox organization has 12 issues on its list of major concerns. CNN has 15. Its happy-money time at the networks. Reading so many essays on issues has given us eyeball migraines. If we listed all the issues here, our column would require several pages of space. Weve become a full-fledged nanny nation. Americans have been led to believe that problems of all kinds and sizes deserve Washingtons attention, federal solutions, and taxpayer generosity. Local and state governments, and self-reliance, are old-fashioned, ancient history. Besides, Washington is where they money is and where it can be borrowed as needed so far. There are citizens and organizations which believe the federal government should be doing more about animal rights, death penalties, internet censorship, neighborhood crime, student loan bailouts, church-state relations, a national language, medical marijuana, child support, marriage, patient rights, school prayer, internet privacy, literacy, economic inequality, stem cells, and gender disparity to name just a few. There are other folks, we among them, who believe in addition to re-election fund raising and back slapping, Washington politicians spend too much time addressing soft issues, which make friendly voters and fewer enemies. They lack the right stuff to deal with the major problems, such as undisciplined federal spending, ballooning national debt, and hundreds of well paid but ineffective bureaucracies. We have thumbnail suggestions about a few of the issues that caused our eyeball migraines: Illegal immigrants Do nothing. If jobs dont improve, theyll hoof it home on their own. Building fences just makes it more difficult for them to climb over and leave. Climate change If its too hot or cold where you live, move! Thats why we bought Alaska, and stole Hawaii. Political corruption Power tends to corrupt. Term limits tend to correct the problem temporarily. Career politicians should be terminated regularly. The founding fathers would be appalled to know that except for plowing snow and issuing hunting and fishing licenses, state and local governments may soon be superfluous. In addition to the economy, national defense, health care, education, foreign policy, national security, and regulation of just about everything, Washington will soon be our only problem solver. In case of emergency, Americans will have to learn to dial area code 202-911 and be patient. All our people are busy at the moment. Please stay on the line. Your problem will be addressed as soon as possible by our next available intern. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 7, 2012 Trying to make sense out of the numbers in the recently completed primary election can be mind-boggling. Some of them have no rhyme or reason. There were some comments elsewhere that the senior population had lost its influence in the voting. Im not sure I agree with that, so I took a look at some of the closer races. The voters in the senior citizen precincts were dominant in the election of David Moore over Mike Amsden. On the State Road 200 Corridor, the area served by the South Marion Citizen, Moore won by 682 votes. In the northwest area served by the West Marion Messenger, Moore won by 108 votes. That means that in the area served by our two newspapers, mostly senior communities, Moore won by 790 votes. Over the entire county, he only won by 778 votes. In other words, we elected David Moore, while the rest of the county went with Amsden. We should make sure he knows that as he moves ahead as a county commissioner. The South Marion Citizen area went strongly for two candidates who didnt win. One was Jackie Porter in the school superintendent race. Porter actually dominated the western and eastern parts of the county, while George Tomyn won the more populous areas in the center, running from Summerfield up north through Ocala. The other candidate who didnt win but was strongly supported along State Road 200 was Pat Gabriel, and that was no surprise. She lives out here and is president of the Coalition and is popular with many people who know her. She actually outpolled winner Earl Arnett by 484 votes here, and didnt do that badly in Messenger territory, losing by 236 votes. But the rest of the county went strongly for Arnett, and Gabriel finished third, behind Francine Johannesen, in the total vote. In the sheriffs race, our area went along with the trend in the entire county, supporting Dan Kuhn by a narrow margin. In the school referenda, in the operating vote, some core precincts in the Ocala area and a couple of other scattered precincts went for passage, while the rest of the county said no. In the capital expense vote, only a small few precincts supported it, while the vast majority of Marion County voted in down. In both cases, the western area went against the school items. Of course, we also have to remember the timing of this primary. Its held in August, when many of our snowbirds are still up north. It still seems that the communities west of the Interstate have a lot of clout in Marion County politics. Any politician who doesnt think so is welcome to ignore the thousands of voters out here and then see what happens.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

The biggest thing is that we should never forget how we all felt that day, Sept. 11, 2001, when the news started to spread. America is under attack. We sat and watched a couple of documentaries this past weekend, and they brought back all those feelings of anger, sorrow and, in some cases, despair, because we were sitting there in 2001 and couldnt do anything about it. We watched as people fell or jumped from the upper floors in an attempt to escape the smoke and fire. About 200 people died that way. It was a sickening thing to watch, and eventually you just wanted to close your eyes and move on. There were stories and interviews from people who were inside and were able to get out, telling us what went on and what desperation there was among the people in the offices. We saw a re-creation of the people reaching the lobby, only to be told by security guards to go back upstairs. We heard a re-telling of announcements broadcast throughout the buildings telling people the towers were safe and to remain in their offices. One man described how he split off from his group to work his way down. The others went up, and were never seen again. We saw, again, the swirling cloud of dust and ash advancing unchecked down the canyon streets of lower Manhattan, with people running for shelter with sheer panic in their eyes. We also saw the brave firefighters and police officers who stayed on the scene and went inside to try to put out the fire and get people out safely. Those were real videos of news footage from that day, and it was emotional watching, knowing what we know now, that many of them never got out. As we approach the 11-year mark (we hesitate to use the word anniversary), we see that some things have changed. Our troops got Osama bin Laden, but terrorist attacks and attempted attacks have still remained. The focus has shifted from organized group assaults to lone wolf attacks that, nevertheless, inflict pain and suffering on the targets. We still have to be vigilant. Theres a public service commercial running on television in New York that shows a person leaving a briefcase behind on public transportation. The words spoken are, If you see something, say something. Thats good advice for all of us. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, this nation was united as it hadnt been for years. Now we seem to have fallen back into the divisiveness, and we hope it doesnt weaken our defenses. Next Tuesday, find a ceremony to attend, fly your flag, and remember all those who died 11 years ago. And most of all, pray that something like this never happens again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Remembering that fateful day The Corridor and the recent election Jim Flynn Columnist A government for all issues, great and small Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Work togetherWhile listening to the political news shows on Sunday morning I heard that the main Republican theme was that they believed in balanced budgets for our country. For years they kept telling us that you can spend more than your income and still balance our budgets if the additional money was spent on wars that were not part of our budget because they didnt count. President Reagan raised taxes on the American people, even those job creators of the top two percent and with this extra money still spent more than our countrys income. The first President Bush promised that there would be no new taxes while he was president but when he broke that pledge the American people were so disappointed that he was not re-elected. We were left without a road map to a balanced budget and the American people were disappointed with their elected Republican presidents. The American people were ready for a change and along came a charming young governor who won the support of the democratic primary and things changed after the election of William Jefferson Clinton as president of the United States. This new Democratic president worked with Congress on both sides of the aisle using Republican and Democratic ideas to help our country and the working class Americans.

Recent news reports show that the building industry is starting to show more signs of recovery. Our thoughts turn to the workers who play the most prominent part in this. We start with ancient history and continue with some shocking stories.The beginningA builder, an electrician, and a lawyer were arguing about which profession was the oldest. The builder pointed out proudly that the first thing God had done was to build the earth. True, said the electrician, but before that, He said Let there be light. Youre both right, said the lawyer, but before the light there was chaos and who do you think created the chaos?Properly orientedClair had her house remodeled according to the rules of Feng Shui, in an attempt to improve her personal luck, health, and happiness. She kept a couple of lamps, particularly ugly, and not particularly in phase with the rest of the room. They had been handmade by her grandfather, and she couldnt bear to part with them. Having seen no noticeable improvement in her life after the remodeling, she consulted a professional. He quickly delivered his diagnosis; Youve got everything here but the kitsch in synch. ShockingI asked the electrician to change the circuit breaker, but he refused. He became an electrician because, as a child, his mother always took him to the outlet stores. In order to become an electrician, you have to go through a battery of tests. When an apprentice electrician made mistakes, his mother grounded him. The electricians favorite subject while in school was current events. An electrician friend drives a volts-wagon.In the darkA boy met his friend walking down the street with a whole sack of burned out light bulbs. He asked him what he was going to do with all those useless bulbs. His friend replied, Im going to build a dark room.Couldnt cut itWhile in prison Andy trained to become a carpenter. He did so well that he was recognized as one of the best in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the community. The warden was remodeling his kitchen and had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top. So he called Andy into his office and asked him to complete the job for him. But Andy refused. He told the warden, Gosh, Id really like to help you but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place.BuildersA good carpenter will always do his level best. The helper didnt laugh at the roofers joke because it was over his head. When the optometrists office was remodeled, it improved his eye site. Roofers are shingle minded. A retired couple that purchased a new home from a building contractor discovered that neither the house nor the builder was on the level. Shes a lady carpenter. You ought to see her build. Dad taught me all I know about remodeling by making an example of our house. Our house was like one of the great European cathedrals never finished. Beavers are the best dam builders in the world. When the first indoor tennis court was finished, the builder made a good net profit. After his classroom had been remodeled, the college professor was heard mooning about, missing the good old dais.By the bookI once wrote a book on how to remodel your basement. Sounds pretty boring. Ill have you know it made the best cellars list.Hows that again?An electrician went to a hardware shop and asked the salesman, Do you have a four volt, two watt lamp? For what? No, two. Two what? Yes. No. Thoughts about workers and U.S. recovery PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE26 000CCQY Representing Ocala area residents for over 40 years The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements Before you decide, ask us to send free written information about our qualifications and experience. 7743 S.W.

Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Take Stock in Children, a statewide non-profit organization with a solid history of providing scholarships, mentors and hope, is proud to announce the launch of Keeping the Promise, an initiative to raise enough funding to purchase college scholarships for an additional 1,800 deserving low-income students. This will increase the number of scholars currently served by 25% to 9,000 active students across Florida. As a role model organization that has supported more than 18,000 students to date, over 80% whom are the first in their family to attend college, Take Stock in Children recently received national recognition for its exemplary successes. As a result of its winning formula of providing low-income students scholarships, mentors and hope, the organization was awarded the prestigious Investing in Innovation grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and also shined in a study by the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. On the heels of this success, the State of Florida demonstrated their belief in Take Stock in Children by allocating an additional $1 million in funding with the understanding that the organization will register an additional 1,800 students. The State of Florida recognizes Take Stock in Children is a strong partner in the solution for improving education, says Emilio Alonso-Mendoza, President/CEO of Take Stock in Children. We must now keep the promise of providing a college education to these students by purchasing 1,800 scholarships and recruiting caring mentors for each of them. Prior to enrolling any student Take Stock in Children must first secure the funding to purchase a college scholarship for them, as this is the promise made to all its scholars. In return, each student promises to meet with their mentor once a week, maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and remain drug and crime free. Upon fulfillment of this agreement students are awarded a college scholarship at high school graduation. To achieve this goal, individuals and businesses are needed to rally behind Take Stock Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative. Volunteering, mentoring or providing resources to purchase scholarships will help ensure Floridas future workforce is strong and improve our communities. With Take Stock in Childrens unique public and private model of funding, any contribution made is matched dollar for dollar by the state. Take Stock in Children plays a critical role in changing the face of education and has a long history of proven results, says Don Pemberton, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children. We believe that knowledge is power and education is the best investment to transform lives. The program offers a unique opportunity for students with comprehensive services starting in middle school, continuing through high school and including assistance during the transition to college. With an unparalleled high school graduation rate of 92%, and 89% enrolling in college, Take Stock in Children contributes to the economic viability of our communities and delivers an unmatched return on investment. High school graduates contribute 46% more in taxes, have longer lives with less public health dependency and are 3 times more likely to be employed and not dependent on government assistance. The total benefit to the State of Florida is estimated to be $300,000 per student over a lifetime. To learn more about Take Stock in Childrens Keeping the Promise initiative, or to become a valued mentor or supporter, please call 888-322-4673 or visit www.takestockinchildren.org.

Elizabeth Soon (352) 245-4500 This weeks puzzle answers conjunction with Hospice of Marion County, McEnery was pinned with a veterans pin while people gathered at his bedside in Legacy House just off State Road 200. The pin was placed by his wife, Gert. The couple were married 65 years last week on Aug. 30. McEnery will turn 93 on Sept. 30. McEnery was part of a rifle company called K/3/5, which was featured on a television show on HBO. He took part in the invasion of Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester and Peleliu and saw hand-to-hand combat against the Japanese, especially in the four months at Guadalcanal. The other battles were perhaps more bloody, and as time went on it was discovered the Peleliu battle was not strategically necessary, something which irks McEnery. McEnery was scheduled to have a book signing recently, but fell ill and couldnt attend. The book, published by Simon and Schuster, is available at Barnes and Noble in Ocala. Suzanne S. Schmolesky, 74Suzanne S. Schmolesky, 74, of Ocala, went to Heaven from her home under the loving care of her husband on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012. She was born in Huntington, W.Va., in 1939.

Survivors include her husband of 48 years, Moe; two sons, Scott Schmolesky of Wilmington, N.C., and Matthew Schmolesky of Ogden, Utah; two grandchildren, Eva and Sebastian Schmolesky; sister-in-law, Arlene Jerabek and her husband, Doug of Oakfield, Wis.; sister-in-law, Judy Scott of Westminster, Calif.

The winners with a 198 were Sam Sample, Bill Start, Ray Hagerman, and Art Pruneau. Second with a 199 were Virgil Hein, Tom Ducz, Tom Morris, and Duck Slayton. Third with a 201 were Al Prachel, Dick Berbig, and Mike Madill. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Emmett Dowling, Bill Start, Bob Gildea, and Paul Valois.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Recent arrests by the Southwest District Office of the Marion County Sheriffs Office: Glen W. Morgan, listed as homeless, age 52, was accused of trespass after warning after he was found sitting on a bench at Jasmine Plaza. In March, he had been issued a warning. Gloria Burleson Harrell, 63, of Southwest 89th Circle, was given a notice to appear after deputies were called to Bealls. She was allegedly observed taking items of clothing and a purse, and then left the store without any attempt to pay for the goods while her adult daughter, who was with her, stopped and checked out. Total value of items taken was $276. RECENT ARRESTS The Seniors vs. Crime program, a special project of the Florida Attorney Generals Office, located at the Paddock Mall in the Ocala Police Community Resource Center is expanding their office hours to better serve the community. Since our opening in 2007 we have been open on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Beginning, Thursday, September 20th we will be open two days each week, on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p. m. According to Regional Director, Barbara Thomas this will allow us to serve additional clients and increase access to the awesome service provided by Seniors vs. Crime. Seniors vs. Crime can help people of any age. If someone has not delivered products or services you have paid for, or if you have been victimized or otherwise taken advantage of financially by a business or service provider, contact Seniors vs. Crime at (352) 873-6377. Our trained senior volunteers have helped many people over the years and have recovered approximately $150,000 for the citizens of Ocala. Just recently an 85 year old woman came to us with a problem, pertaining to a life insurance policy. Her policy stated paid in full at age 85 but she continued to be billed and told she had to pay until she turned 86. After meeting with Seniors vs. Crime, our staff was able to get her reimbursed for all payments made after her 85th birth date. Additionally we assisted her to revise the beneficiaries to 3 other policies resulting in a total recovery of $6,817. No problem is too big or too small for us to help according to Office Manager, Renee Moore. If we cant help you we will find the right resource for you, so never hesitate to call Seniors vs. Crime at 352873-6377.

He was recently pinned by fellow veterans. He served in the Pacific with the Navy in World War II. The 86-year-old Pine Run resident wanted to surprise his wife with a picture in the South Marion Citizen. Getting pinned at Legacy House PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJim McEnery and his wife, Gert, look over his book in his room at Legacy House after the veterans pinning ceremony. BY JIM CLARK EditorJim McEnery writes about his World War II exploits with the U.S. Marines, but the Kingsland Country Estates resident, now in Hospice, almost saw the war from a different branch of the service. McEnery, who authored the book Hell in the Pacific: A Marine Riflemans Journey from Guadalcanal to Peleliu with historian Bill Sloan, was in New York City in 1940, and he and a friend decided to go to the Army recruiting center to sign up. But to their surprise, it was closed. So the pair made their way to the U.S. Marines center. The first Marine I saw said Semper Fidelis, McEnery said, and added with a laugh, I thought he said seventy-five dollars.

The next car show is scheduled for Sept. 7. This Chevy was born in 1938 but runs well. There are a few small places that need painting but they are hard to find. This Ford had an unusual antique tag from New Hampshire. It read PUT PUT. It putted along nicely to get to the show. In honor and memory of the victims and heroes of September 11, Highland Memorial Parka 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 multiscreen 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.
